You guessed it, it’s another #IndiesOfChristmas post, 16 days down, only 15 to go! So far this month has gone unbelievably well, maybe it’s too early to count my chickens but it’s all gone brilliantly smooth with only a handful of hiccups! I’d like to say thank-you to the people who have interacted with me up until this point in the December game, those authors who have got involved and just everyone who has retweeted and written a review on Amazon (I haven’t checked but I keep reminding you and I have faith in you wonderful people).
The holidays are fast approaching, which means the kids are off school, family time etc, so I’m not going to be *as* active as I have been, i’ll be here with tweets but I probably won’t be a constant presence!
Anyways, enough about me and how full my heart is because of you guys right now, let me introduce you to todays indie. *Drumroll please* out indie is Nick Clausen!!
Nick lives in Denmark. He has been writing since the age of 18. His promise to himself was that he’d type 1,000 words a day until he got a book published. He has written and published +25 books. Nick has been a full-time writer since 2017, and started translating his books into English in 2019. Nick’s preferred genre is horror, fantasy and sci-fi. He loves dogs, but he does like cats too.
Nick Clausen’s books can be placed under the genre labels of horror, suspense and paranormal. He also has two sci-fi and a fantasy novel that is due to be published next year. So let’s get in to some of the works of Nick Clausen. They are all available in both e-book and paperback format.
First out of the bag of books is They Come At Night.
Four teenagers. A cottage by the beach. A scary secret kept by the locals. And those who come at night …
A classic horror story in a gothic setting told in a modern voice,
This 101 paged chilling novel was published in January of this year, it’s available for free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription.
The next book that I love the look of and I am 100% going to read is Dreamland. Published in March of this year and a short story, I can squeeze it in-between blog prep, right? It’s only 160 pages!
In Dreamland, everything is really two things: what you see and what you want to see. And it can be hard to tell the difference …
In his sleep, Louie starts visiting an alternate reality where he meets his father, who died when Louie was still a baby. At first, it seems like a wonderful opportunity for Louie to finally get to know his dad, but nothing turns out to be what it seems, and great horrors loom very close by …
Welcome to Dreamland
A mixture of ghost story, paranormal fantasy and magical realism, Dreamland is a tale about fear, loss and losing yourself in dreams, which will appeal to young and grown-up readers alike. For fans of Coraline and A Monster Calls.
The last book I’m going to spotlight in today’s #IndiesOfChristmas post is Blind Date which illiterates why you should never go home with a stranger. Published again in both e-book and paperback in January of this year, it’s only a mere 44 pages but packs a chilling punch.
Lily agrees to go on a date at a restaurant with Jake, whom she’s never met. He turns out to be fun, sweet and kind of mysterious. Against her own better judgement, she decides to go home with him—and that turns out to be the biggest mistake of her life.
Jake’s parents are out of town, so they have the whole, impressive mansion to themselves. Jake makes Lily a drink, goes upstairs but doesn’t come back down. Lily waits patiently for several minutes. Still, no Jake. Finally, she goes upstairs to look for him. And that’s when the horror begins …
Duh duh dum! I’m one of those readers that LOVE horror, but also goes to go to bed at night worried that something this terrifying would happen, then not sleep! So there you have it, three spotlighted books. Nick has also written others that you can find on Amazon, he clearly has a talent for making his readers feel uneasy.
So there you have it! What dark read are you going to pick for yourself? If you do grab yourself A Clausen read, please share your book picture on Twitter (or even Instagram!) using #IndiesOfChristmas!
