Get to know the woman behind the Cold Fingers Series

A couple of days ago we got to meet Neptune Flowers, today it’s Amy Spector’s turn to Ruby Shoesguest my blog. Amy and I have talked daily for about four years time now.  We met through Beaten Track Publishing. We were both part of the Boughs of Evergreen anthology, and while we didn’t talk a lot during the process of writing it, we both latched on to Al Stewart. And later on Amy asked Al if he wanted to do a horror project with her and Al said she should ask me, and that’s how it all started.

Buried Desires was born, and the plan was for it be three stories. Al, Amy and I each started writing but life got in the way as it often does and Al was unable to finish his story. So Buried Desires #1 became a double feature.

The year after Amy and I wrote Buried Desires #2, and then last year life got in the way again, and there were no Buried Desires #3. This year there is, though. And this year we have three stories since we managed to persuade Neptune Flowers to join us.

But, just because I talk to Amy every day doesn’t mean you know her as well as I do. So here’s your chance to catch up. Once you’ve heard what she has to say you know everything there is to know about Amy Spector, the woman who brings people back from the dead.

Are you ready, Amy? One word answers only!

Paper or Plastic?


Superman or Batman?

Silver Age Batman

It’s the cape, right?

Fame or Money?


Puzzles or Boardgames?


Book or Movie?


Weird or Crazy?


Breakfast or Dinner?


Wrong answer, but let’s move on 🙂

Sunshine or Storms?


Christmas or Halloween?

Vampire in a Santa hat!


Boat or Plane?


Antique or Brand New?


Heels or Flats?


Music or Podcast?


Blue or Green?


Paintings or Photographs?


Scooby Doo or Tom and Jerry?


Of course.

Shower or Bubble bath?


Library or Museum?

You can’t make me pick!

I tried, didn’t I?

Stripes or Polka dots?


Zombies or Robots?


Really, I’d guessed zombies, considering…

Thank you for coming, Amy!

On October 10th Pretty Plastic (Cold Finger #3) will be released and if you haven’t read Amy’s Cold Fingers series, I suggest you get right to it because it’s awesome. If you’re a fan of classic horror, you should definitely read it, and if you’re not, you can read it as a paranormal series.

I love the Cold Fingers books, I love the perfect mix of funny and creepy. Christopher Minnick used to have an antique shop, but now he doesn’t really have anything except his boyfriend Victor Polidori, his brother, and a few friends…

Amy writes the best secondary characters. While you have to love Grant, Christopher’s friend and former colleague, no one beats Flora, Vic’s mother, in my opinion. Flora is a crazy old lady with a thing for tasty young men LOL.

Don’t miss this series!

Visit Amy on her website or find her on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Bookbub or wherever you like to hang.

Three months after his run-in with the vampire Marcus Gråsson, Christopher’s ankle has healed but his life is anything but perfect. There are people watching the house. Flora’s worried about the scarecrow. And after an unexpected tragedy strikes, Christopher will need to figure out how to deal with the loss without tearing a rift between his brother and himself.

When Victor accepts a job with Pretty, a prestigious private hospital, to work alongside the handsome Austen Poole, Christopher ends up with one more thing to worry about. While it might seem like a dream job, there’s something not quite right in paradise, and when Vic starts acting strangely, Christopher will stop at nothing to get his man back.

When striving for perfection, you sometimes need to get your hands a little dirty.

All You Need to know about Neptune Flowers

Yesterday, I was talking about The Snowflake. Today I thought we all should get to know Neptune Flowers a little better. I met Neptune through the Seasons of Love anthology that was published earlier this year. Reading his contribution, Machete Betty and the Office Sharks, made me realise he truly was a god of the sea.

Neptune Flowers

Today I’ve invited Neptune over to answer a few questions, so let’s jump right to it. Neptune, ready to bare your soul?? Only one-word answers allowed!

Cat or Dog?


Car or Motorcycle?


Sandals or Sneakers?


Can you imagine a sea god in sneakers? I would’ve guessed sandals for sure LOL.

Beer or Wine?


Ninjas or Pirates?


I’m beginning to think the name Neptune is misleading…

Spring or Autumn?


Alone or In a Crowd?


Money or Free Time?


City or Country?


Sweet or Salty?


…of course.

Doctor Who or The Walking Dead?

The walking dead

Jogging or Hiking?


Circles or Squares?

Really? Well, then. Now we know everything we need to know about Neptune, don’t you think? Just kidding, the most important thing is that he wrote The Reluctant Ghost Whisperer.

The Reluctant Ghost Whisperer is about Adam Barrow, a shy, down to earth guy who owns a building company. He needs an extra pair of hands, and there is Johnny Sparrow. Johnny has Adam talking and flirting, but the more the two see of each other, the weirder things get around them.

Adam falls asleep in Johnny’s arms and wakes up with ghosts sitting on the bedside…and Johnny is talking to them or desperately clutching an egg whisk, either or.

I was laughing several times while reading this story, Adam is hilarious.

The Reluctant Ghost Whisperer will be released on October 10th, but if you want to grab a copy on pre-order, you’ll find it here:

Visit Neptune on his blog or follow him on twitter (@NFlower15160086)

GhostWhispererAll you need is love, or so they say!

Owning a building company means long hours, lonely days and too much physical labour.

When Adam Barrow employs a fit capable guy, life begins to look up. His business thrives from the extra muscle, and so does Adam. Being around chatty Johnny really helps the time fly past. Adam is shy and inexperienced in ways of the heart but very soon his awkwardness eases and he finds himself flirting and having fun.

Johnny Sparrow has a mysterious past and seems to have a knack of stirring up inexplicable presences. From the day he arrives on a motorbike, weird things begin to happen, like strange noises and creepy mists. Even motorbike Angus has a personality!

All you need is love, but can Adam find the strength to confront the ghostly goings-on? Can Johnny find a use for the egg whisk, and can Angus really carry them both to safety?

A story of paranormal divas, supernatural aromas and head-over-heels romance.

Barrow and Sparrow book one.
