"There’s no “correct path” to becoming a real artist. You might think you’ll gain legitimacy by going to university, getting published, getting signed to a record label. But it’s all bullshit, and it’s all in your head. You’re an artist when you say you are. And you’re a good artist when you make somebody else experience or feel something deep or unexpected."

New review for Nightmare... and Destroyer for only 99 cents!

Another great review for Nightmare In Greasepaint, which is being officially released tomorrow, 5/5/15! This time from Examiner.com's Arts & Entertainment section....

"This is a very good novella with a couple twists that are sure to keep the reader guessing and cause nightmares in their own right. Soares and Gunn handle the story with a deft hand.... This is a strong story with an almost stream-of-consciousness feel to it and another strong addition to the “Childhood Fears” series...."

The full review is here: http://www.examiner.com/review/nightmare-greasepaint-by-l-l-soares-and-g-daniel-gunn

To celebrate the release, my previous G Daniel Gunn novel, Destroyer of Worlds, is only 99 cents for a limited time! Get it here: http://smile.amazon.com/Destroyer-Worlds-G-Daniel-Gunn-ebook/dp/B006ZZ0SHO/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

Another Great Review for Billy...

Nightmare in Greasepaint has garnered another great, pre-release review, this time from Mallory Heart Reviews, on Goodreads:



Caution: if you're thinking this is plain old garden-variety coulrophobia--"I can't go to the circus 'cause I'm scared of clowns"--it's not. This, folks, is serious horror: the ugly underside of life where true evil hangs out. Probably not for the queasy of stomach, but this is one fascinating, unputdownable story. Part of Samhain Publishing's Horror "Childhood Fears" imprint, NIGHTMARE IN GREASEPAINT is indeed all about childhood--present and past--and its fears, real and imagined, and its very real dangers. It's also about depth psychology and abnormal psychology and metaphysics, and it is one enrapturing and unforgettable tale.

Big thanks to them for such great words. I have to say, I haven't seen the word coulrophobia used this much in my life! lol

Nightmare in Greasepaint is available for pre-order now, releasing in less than a week! (May 5th). Visit http://smile.amazon.com/Nightmare-Greasepaint-Childhood-Fears-Soares-ebook/dp/B00VNK4MCI/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

First Review for Nightmare in Greasepaint

Nick Cato of The Horror Fiction Review has a good review of L.L. Soares' and my upcoming novella Nightmare in Greasepaint.

Part of the "Childhood Fears" series of novellas, Samhain strikes with this quick but powerful tale that, while full of familiar horror tropes, manages to build some serious suspense and will easily freak out those who suffer from Coulrophobia. Clowns, dark basements, occult objects, dark family secrets and noises in the night may seem tiring to most horror fans, but Soares and Gunn take these classic elements and twist them into a satisfying, well done creep-fest.
