Hello, friends! I hope you will welcome first time guest, Mark Bierman, to my blog. I’ve reviewed Mark’s book, Vanished on my blog, and he often pops in to comment on posts and guest posts, but he’s never actually been the guest before. We’re changing that today.
If you’re not familiar with Mark, please check out his blog, Adventures in Writing. He always has something interesting to share, and is a wonderful person to know. And now, here’s Mark!
It’s an honor to be here! I can’t thank Mae enough for inviting me to be a guest on her mazing blog. I’ve read a number of her books and declare myself a fan. In light of her penchant for penning the superntaural and a nod to upcoming Halloween. I took a shot at writing a short poem based on this photo. Thanks for taking the time to read it and please have a look around Mae’s site.
Sit down a spell, your hosts await,
Mere Shadows, they’ll possess you, ten deep
Your mind is naught more than their slate
The soul is the prize, and it’s snatched for keeps
Oh, don’t be shy, cozy up to the fireplace
A dark finger, carves your name in the ashes
The letters turn bloody, you feel a cut on your face
A mirror reveals a black mass from chin to lashes
It spreads quickly over, and you’re now a host
The other Shadows glide through each other, and you
All substance gone, you drift aimlessly, like a ghost
Trapped for eternity, no portal to pass through
That definitely induced the creep factor! I love that photo and Mark’s poem is a perfect goosebump match! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did and will drop Mark a line with your thoughts.
Also, be sure to check out his book, Vanished. You can find my 5-Star Review HERE.
by Mark Bierman
Tragedy . . . heartache . . . how much more can Tyler Montgomery and John Webster take? This missions trip, the “healing” one, has only added fresh layers of pain. Construction of an orphanage in Haiti’s northwest . . . yes. But a doomed rescue operation, human traffickers, human anomalies, extreme personal danger . . . risk of death? They hadn’t signed up for those.
