OUBLIETTE A Forgotten Little Place by VANTA M. BLACK

Author Vanta M. Black is stopping by today to tell us a little about her new book OUBLIETTE A Forgotten Little Place, and giving us a list of creepy Christmas movies to get you into the mood as well. It's like the one present you get to open before the big day!

This cover was done by Black Chateau Enterprises. The book falls into the following genres: Fiction, Thriller, Paranormal, Historical Fiction, Genre-Fiction, New Adult, Horror.
Wondering what it's all about? Here's the scoop:
Veronica knows the monsters aren’t “just in her head”, but no one listens to the headstrong ten-year-old as they tie her to a hospital bed every night.
Years later, after being dumped by her business-partner/boyfriend, Veronica finds herself on the verge of bankruptcy. Then a late-night call promises the perfect solution — a job opportunity decorating a castle in France.

Will Veronica risk what little she has left to chase a fairy tale?
When the shadowy things that once terrorized her come back, Veronica must decide how much she’ll sacrifice for them, for her sanity, and for her life.

This epic book consists of interwoven stories with paranormal twists. A horror-filled historical fiction adventure, it spans nearly two millennia.
You'll be transported to an ancient Pagan ritual, Roman-ruled Gaul, the bloody Inquisition of the Knights Templar, France as it's ravaged by the Black Death, the duplicitous Reformation, the Paris Catacombs, and the gory French Revolution, while you unravel Oubliette’s cryptic layers.

Ooh-la-la, we also have a book trailer for this tale. Here's some links that will tell you everything you need to know that I don't have space for here:

As we mentioned, Vanta has added a special treat for our readers today since she wahts you to HAVE A VERY SCARY CHRISTMAS. Here's her gift to you: 
This time of the year is often happy, filled with cheer and the spirit of giving. For those who enjoy something a little darker, though, there are plenty of thrills on the movie front.
If you like things that are twisted and dark, then here are the top five scary holiday movies you can watch:

Jack Frost
Nothing like a killer snowman named Jack Frost to get you in the mood for the holidays, right? This 1997 thriller is a classic holiday romp you are sure to enjoy. The movie takes place in the fictional town of Snowmonton, where a truck carrying serial killer Jack Frost to his execution crashes into a genetics truck. The genetic material causes Jack's body to mutate and fuse together with the snow on the ground. As you can imagine, what happens next is pretty freaky and fun!

As cute as those little buggers are when they are soft, fuzzy Mogwai, they are delightfully evil as Gremlins. They wreak havoc during Christmas when a boy inadvertently breaks three important rules about getting his new pet wet. This is a family favorite and if you’ve never seen it, now it is the season.

Silent Night, Deadly Night
A slasher flick that brings us all back to the 80s, this film is perfect for fans of serial killer movies. It’s tehe story of an escaped maniac who returns to his childhood home on Christmas Eve, which is now a sorority house, and begins to murder the sorority sisters one by one. There is lots of blood and gore, watch this one with the lights low after the kids are in bed.

Released last year, Krampus is based on a German legend and takes the notion of St. Nick and spins it in a whole new direction. It’s about a boy who has a bad Christmas ends up accidentally summoning this festive demon to his family home. Lots of jumpy moments make this a must-watch during the holidays.

The Nightmare Before Christmas
Okay, this is considered a Halloween flick, too, but it certainly crosses over and spans two of the best holidays of the year. You see, Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn't quite understand the concept. Can you blame him? Tim Burton is a master and this film can be enjoyed by young and old anytime during the season.

Wasn't that fun? Here's a little bit about the author:
Vanta M. Black, author of Oubliette—A Forgotten Little Place, enjoys uncovering the dark mysteries of our Universe.
In addition to writing,  she enjoys traveling to provocative places and studying all things esoteric.

Black has degrees in English, communication and art. She resides in Southern California with her husband and two pug-mix dogs, and spends her time in support of causes that empower women and advance science and technology.

Okay, today it's like going to the movies. If you hung around for the credits, there's even more for you. Vanta would like to tell you about his horror writing contest.
