Cat: Hello Rick, tell us about your Halloween release: HOPE, A Ghost Story.


After Todd’s mother dies from cancer, he moves back to his hometown in the foothills of the Appalachians from Chicago. It’s 1997 and he’s just been given a death sentence–an HIV-positive diagnosis.

Todd expects his remaining time on earth to be spent alone. But Cal, his handsome next-door neighbor, has other ideas.

Cal is not the only surprise in Todd’s new life. Todd begins having visions of an older woman, Essie, when he dims the lights. Is she just a figment of his imagination? Or is she a truth teller? When she talks to Todd, she’s smart and hopeful. 

When Todd tells Cal about the ghost, Cal knows her already because Todd’s mother spoke with her before her death. Essie was a godsend when Todd’s mom was in so much pain. 

And now, Essie urges Todd to live…for himself…for new love. But is she too late?

A Demon Inside

Rick R. Reed

Cover artist: Aaron Anderson

Genre: Horror

Pages: 260

Hunter Beaumont doesn’t understand his grandmother’s deathbed wish: “Destroy Beaumont House.” He’s never even heard of the place. But after his grandmother passes and his first love betrays him, the family house in the Wisconsin woods looks like a tempting refuge. Going against his grandmother’s wishes, Hunter flees to Beaumont House. But will the house be the sanctuary he had hoped for?

Soon after moving in, Hunter realizes he may not be alone. And with whom―or what―he shares the house may plunge him into a nightmare from which he may never escape.

Sparks fly when he meets his handsome neighbor, Michael Burt, a caretaker for the estate next door. The man might be his salvation… or he could be the source of Hunter’s terror.
