This Week's Question: 

Q: What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie? Please explain in graphic detail of goriness...

I'd have to go with "The Mephisto Club" by Tess Gerritsen provided it wasn't done by the same people who made the show "Rizzoli and Isles". This novel is one of her typical medical thrillers, but it has a fantastical undertone with demons and the supernatural. This gave the book an air of creepiness that some her other thrillers didn't have. A mysterious organization and ritualistic murders.  I don't want to go into graphic detail but I'll post the synopsis here  

Via Amazon:

Evil exists. Evil walks the streets. And evil has spawned a diabolical new disciple in this white-knuckle thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.

The Latin word is scrawled in blood at the scene of a young woman’s brutal murder: I HAVE SINNED. It’s a chilling Christmas greeting for Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli, who swiftly link the victim to controversial celebrity psychiatrist Joyce O’Donnell–Jane’s professional nemesis and member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

On top of Beacon Hill, the club’s acolytes devote themselves to the analysis of evil: Can it be explained by science? Does it have a physical presence? Do demons walk the earth? Drawing on a wealth of dark historical data and mysterious religious symbolism, the Mephisto scholars aim to prove a startling theory: that Satan himself exists among us. 

With the grisly appearance of a corpse on their doorstep, it’s clear that someone–or something–is indeed prowling the city. The members of the club begin to fear the very subject of their study. Could this maniacal killer be one of their own–or have they inadvertently summoned an evil entity from the darkness? 

Delving deep into the most baffling and unusual case of their careers, Maura and Jane embark on a terrifying journey to the very heart of evil, where they encounter a malevolent foe more dangerous than any they have ever faced . . . one whose work is only just beginning.

Today's Question:

Q: What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?

I'd like my blog to be a popular place for indie authors and readers in general. Initially I started it to promote my own book, but over the last few weeks I've found that I like reading and reviewing other's people's work a lot more. Mainly I just want to connect with other people that have a passion for reading and writing.
