What was the hottest ticket at this year’s Chiller Theatre Expo? (http://chillertheatre.com/main.htm) Bob’s Spirit Board! 

Bob’s Spirit Board is a “spirit board” that works like a Ouija Board. Bob was a serial killer a very long time ago. He was never caught.

After a near-fatal brain injury in head-on traffic collision Bob found redemption. He built his spirit board in his garage as a portal to speak to his victims and ask for their forgiveness.

Many of these victims, having been summoned from the darkness to the living world haunted Bob for the rest of his life, plunging him into madness.

REWARD! 

The board is littered with codes and clues that Bob may have been trying to get caught or have his crimes discovered. There is  a $50,000 reward to anyone who can decipher this series of codes, cyphers, and arcane images.  Allied Board Purveyors LLC recently required the rights to distribute the legendary Bob’s Spirit Board. In an effort to better understand the board and it’s potential impact upon society, they are offering this reward. There is no purchase necessary, but you must be over 18 to collect the reward.

Thousands of board given away at Chiller Theatre Expo 

At the Chiller Theatre Expo, 1000 spirit boards were given away to the first 1000 attendees. Bob’s Spirit Board can now be purchased online for $29.99, plus shipping and handling.

$200 Cash for Creepy Amateur Footage! 

Have you had a strange paranormal experience using Bob’s Board spirit board at a seance or party? If you did — and can prove it by providing video footage — the distributors of Bob’s Board wants to use it for their website. If they post it, they will send you a check for $200!

Love Cats Cover 5

I’m excited that pre-orders for “Love Cats” will be available possibly as soon as next week, from Next Century Publishing, Barnes & Noble Store and Amazon. Then once the release is official, it will be available on Kindle too!

Enjoy the synopsis and endorsements!

Synopsis

Janey Peyton is filthy rich, but also a down-to-earth goth chick. She lives in suburban New Jersey during the 1980s. Janey has it all, including an Italian live-in housekeeper (who sometimes drives her batty with overbearing dated love advice).

Since Janey’s status symbol-driven parents are absent in her life love-starved Janey desperately seeks a soul mate as she cruises the new wave nightclubs.

Enter Beck Stewart, also a workaholic, but for all the right reasons. The working class hero wants to make a better life for himself. Beck falls hard for Janey and turns a blind eye to the immediate red flags: she’s a snoop and obviously hates his beloved old cat, Morticia.

When Janey discovers Beck can’t resist overtime hours, she mistakes his job loyalty for neglect. For “revenge” she takes on other lovers and is careless when it comes to hiding her conquests. What happens when Beck feels enough is enough and the couple who had their ups and downs finally hit an all time low? And what happens when a stray kitten shows up on cat hater Janey’s doorstep?

If you love the’80s, alternative wave, sexy chick lit, and of course CATS, this book is for you!

Endorsements

“Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta draws you in from the very first page. This book will make you find yourself yelling at the characters. I laughed out loud, I cried; my emotions were all over the place. With engaging characters and a unique story-line set in 1980s New Jersey, ‘Love Cats’ is a story that will captivate you and stay in your heart long after you read the last line.” – S.C. Miotto, author “Moonstone Dreams” and “Diamond Love.”

“Maryanne’s zeal for life and passion for creativity shines through in all of her work. Here in her first book of fiction she gives us multidimensional characters mitigating love and growing pains as they manicure their pop culture lifestyle at the tail end of the ’80s. It’s romance — Gen X style! I could not get enough of Janey and Beck.” – Scott Schiaffo

In “Love Cats,” Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta really takes you there, to the fun and electricity of running around, being young in the 1980s, in New Jersey, but enough universal magic so we all can relate: the spontaneity, adorable flirting, daring and exploring, making mistakes and finding your way. Maryanne treats tricky, sensitive and intimate topics with the most refreshing honesty. – Zaphyrella, fashion designer.
