Horror or Ghost Movies

First of all, thank you so much, Cath, for the chance to do a guest post on your blog.  xxx

Now there is a significant difference between horror and ghost movies. Ghost movies are not necessarily scary, unlike horror movies. Some ghost movies have the element of drama and that is what I like about them. I do like horror movies but I love drama more. Unfortunately I don’t know too many ghost-drama movies apart from the legendary
Ghost, starred Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. I’ll try to find some more for you. Let me know if you have recommendations!
1.       The Sixth Sense
A boy who communicates with spirits that don't know they're dead seeks the help of a disheartened child psychologist.
2.       The Others
A woman who lives in a darkened old house with her two photosensitive children becomes convinced that her family home is haunted.
3.       Sleepy Hollow
Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman.
4.       The Woman in Black
A young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.
5.       The Rite
An American seminary student travels to Italy to take an exorcism course.
6.       Stigmata
A priest from the Vatican is sent to Sao Paulo, Brazil to investigate the appearance of the face of the Virgin Mary on the side of a building.

So why am I talking about horror, drama, and such? Well, my newest story, A Part of Me, is a short story of Zach and Connor who have to go through an ordeal that changes their life forever. If you like a gentle romance story about two men in different worlds, you might want to try it.

Price: £0.39 / $0.60

Release Date:
July 21st 2013

Alfie Dog Fiction

In the middle of the snow on their way to get home for Christmas, Connor Williams crashed his car into a tree. He was badly injured but his boyfriend that was also in the car, Zach Tyler, was barely alive. How then, that morning in Connor's room, was Zach by his side, waiting for him to wake up?

Excerpt 1

Zach found Connor still awake in the middle of the night, eyes straining at the screen of his PowerBook; his forefinger never stopped clicking. He didn’t even realize when Zach entered the study and came to stand behind him.

Zach yawned. “What are you doing?” He tried to peep into the screen. It looked like the website of a local airline. Zach got no reply until he repeated his question. This time he got a grunt.

“Is something wrong? Hey, Connor?” He leaned over Connor’s shoulder. “Why are you checking a flight schedule? Don’t we have tickets?”

Excerpt 2

The road was dark and empty, but Zach kept running and he nearly wept in joy when there was light from a car coming from the opposite direction.

“Hey! Over here! Please!”

The car drove past him, as if he didn’t exist, to where he’d left Connor. Zach called out once more and chased after it. He hoped against hope that it would see their car stuck into a tree.


Excerpt 3

Instead of all hell breaking loose when both Connor’s and his parents came, it was a hushed grief and mourning. Zach accompanied them to the morgue. His mother’s swollen eyes—Zach thought she hadn’t stopped crying since she first heard of his death—were full of unshed tears even before the morgue staff showed her his body. And she sobbed as she buried her face into Zach’s father’s chest when they took the sight of their son lying there lifelessly. Zach was relieved at the condition his body was in. There was no more blood, and the cuts and bruises were not as bad as before. His father squeezed his mother like he would not let her go again, ever.
