Horror+Love=??? By Danielle DeVor

Writing horror is an interesting thing. There are so many aspects to take into account, and one of them is making sure what goes on in the story doesn’t detract from the horror. But, how does one do that? Especially when you have characters that are in a romantic relationship?

Mostly, I take care not to include sex scenes. It isn’t that I have anything against sex scenes in general, but I think that horror films go over the top in terms of having a couple make love, then the killer attacks. It is overdone. So, I just don’t do sex scenes in my horror.

I do add small little affectionate things. A kiss here. Holding a hand there. Just little sprinkles.

Plus, since I’m writing a series, it makes it very easy to add more and more things happen in each book. So, now that I have book three off to the editor, the relationship between Jimmy and Tabby has progressed to them being officially engaged. All the while, they are fighting demons and trying not to die during exorcisms.

So, is it an easy balance to create? No. In fact, I have to remind myself sometimes that there needs to be something done with their relationship because I’ve concentrated so hard on the horror going on around them.

So, keep in mind that for horror to be truly scary, you have to have realism. Just remember to concentrate on the main focus of the story and add your day to day life stuff here and there.

Book Blurb:

Finding the truth can sometimes be harder than exorcising a demon…

Jimmy Holiday, defrocked priest- turned- exorcist, is trying to make sense of his life. With his on-again-off-again witchy girlfriend moving in, Lucy- the spirit from his last exorcism hanging around, and a secret organization of exorcists hounding him, Jimmy is feeling the stress.

When a stranger calls in the middle of the night asking for help with a possession, Jimmy is puzzled. Especially when the dude on the phone says he got his number from Jimmy’s old mentor. Too bad his mentor has been dead for several years.

After a mysterious silver flask arrives at his doorstep, Jimmy is left with two options: either ignore the phone call and the flask, or listen to Lucy and travel to Arizona to solve the mystery before all hell breaks loose- literally.

Genre: Dark Fantasy
Series: Book 2 of the Sorrow’s
