Welcome, all, to the Sunshire Chateau: Lestershire’s premier tourist attraction. It sits high on a hill overlooking town, shrouded by tall trees and rumors of murder, scandal and intrigue. Tickets are hard to come by, so hold yours close, else the Tour Guide may not let you in. And that would be a pity, for there are so many things to see within these walls–history, glamor, and riches beyond your wildest imagination. Just remember the following rules: don’t wander off alone, don’t be rude to the Guide, and don’t, whatever you do, touch the valuables.
Because the ghosts don’t like it when you touch their things.
Bram Stoker Award nominated author Gemma Amor brings you her newest tale of secrets, lies, love, betrayal, greed, family ties, and a house that has seen a great many sights, over the years.
Praise for Six Rooms
“Six Rooms starts as an almost whimsical ghost story but devolves inexorably into a series of genuinely dreadful horrors. This descent into violence and greed and regret will leave you thoroughly unsettled.”
–Alan Baxter, author of THE GULP & THE ALEX CAINE SERIES
“Gemma Amor turns her keen eye for character and atmosphere to the nightmare land of ghosts—a gorgeous blend of historical horror and hauntings done right, Six Rooms is at turns chilling and heartbreaking, with enough scares to make sure you leave the lights on. A delight.”
–Laurel Hightower, author of CROSSROADS & WHISPERS IN THE DARK
“Gemma Amor’s Six Rooms is a chilling ghost story that is full of her usual prose magic and haunting imagery. This deftly crafted paranormal yarn will chill the very marrow of your bones, whilst the frenetic pace and readability of Amor’s words will get your heart rate pumping until you turn that final page and can once more breathe easily. This is more than just a ghost story; this is a story about belonging, a story of finding one’s place in the world, but above all else it is a unique and masterful book that takes the paranormal trope and crafts something truly magical… Six Rooms will leave its mark long after reading, mark my words.”
–Ross Jeffery, Bram Stoker Nominated author of TOME, JUNIPER & ONLY THE STAINS REMAIN

Praise for Cruel Works of Nature:
"Each of these stories is designed to both ensnare and repulse readers, and it does not disappoint! I couldn't put the book down, and let's just say there was more than one sleepless night!"
"Are you into the macabre and supernatural? If so, you’re in for a thrill ride."
"This is one grisly must read horror. The author has really described some morbid stuff that made my skin crawl just reading it."
Josh Malerman New York Times best selling author of BIRD BOX and MALORIE
"Disturbing, evocative, and profoundly haunting, WE ARE WOLVES is a high-def snapshot of the future of the horror genre. It pulls no punches, asks for no quarter, and will leave you breathless. I loved it."
Best-selling author and World Horror Grandmaster Award winner Brian Keene
Once upon a time, there was a woman, and she was tired. Tired of pushing. Tired of being pushed. Tired of feeling alone. Tired of so much.
So she gathered together a pack of wolves, a band of mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, partners, friends, lovers, survivors, victors and brilliant, shining things, and she told them to sing.
And sing they did.
The result is WE ARE WOLVES, a chorus of of terrifying, moving and heart-breaking stories from some of horror’s finest contemporary writers including Gemma Amor, Laurel Hightower, Cina Pelayo, Sarah Read, Hailey Piper, V Castro, Sara Tantlinger, Sonora Taylor and many more.
All proceeds from the sale of this charity anthology will go towards helping the survivors of abuse and assault.
“It takes a wolf to sing for wolves, and these stories sing in the dark”
Kathe Koja, Bram Stoker and Locus Award winning author of The Cipher and Velocities
“We Are Wolves is a collection of stories about survival, violence, vengeance, blood, and how women relentlessly push forward in a world that tries to maul them while asking them to smile. These women will tear you apart and hold you in their hands after, because they are savage wolves, but also goddesses who understand pain, love, justice, and the importance of persistence.”
Gabino Iglesias, author of Coyote Songs
But freedom has a price, and when the young girl hell-bent on starting a new life crashes her cherry red 1989 Pontiac Bonneville on America's loneliest road, she finds out just how dear that price is.
From the Bram Stoker Award nominated author of DEAR LAURA and WHITE PINES comes a new novella, a searing tale of fire, revenge and redemption, a coming-of-age tale with a bite, because, let's face it...happy endings are for children, and some girls just want to watch the world burn.
If someone screams in the forest and no one is around, will they regret ever making a sound?
Stepping into the forest, you're surrounded by the natural grandeur of a world which has no need of you. The silence is so heavy that you can hear your blood thundering through your veins. The stir of dry leaves in the darkness could be your friend finding his way back, but it sounds more like a primordial monster stalking its prey. And the lights between the trees? And the haunting songs which lure you ever deeper?
It's time to admit that you aren't afraid of being alone in the woods. You're afraid of not being alone.
Journey through the minds of 22 horror authors who have teamed up to reveal the most terrifying aspects of the forest. Over 400 pages of original supernatural and psychological horror stories include: ghosts, demons, serial-killers, true stories and unsolved mysteries, unique monsters, classic myths and legends, and above all else, a profound respect for the terror hidden within the mysterious trees.

In this follow-up collection to her debut Cruel Works of Nature, Amor once again brings you thirteen stories about the supernatural, strange, and downright hellish, and her signature emotional style will leave you wondering: What is down in Lee’s basement? When will the war be over? Who does that mysterious dog belong to? What is that thing under the bed? Why is Justine so angry? Why is there a crack in that wall?
And how exactly does one get rid of a body?
