We are pleased to announce the first horror novella by Kristen Houghton.
Written under the name CK Houghton, Welcome to Hell has just been released as an ebook and the previews are excellent!
"Well-written in a perfect blend of horror and dark comedy; nice psychological twists and turns." Kirkus Reviews
Take a healthy pouring of satire. Stir in black humor. Add a slug of morality play when the Devil explains what is in store for Teddy's eternal damnation. Stir well. Sip. Repeat. Houghton hits two of my favorite writing elements, satire and black humor. This novella is fun and scary! Sit back and enjoy. You'll find it's worth the ride. Betsy Ashton in Write Now!

ABLL would like to welcome author Kristen Houghton. Sit back and enjoy the interview.
Describe yourself as a writer.
Surprisingly, since I am not this way in some other areas of my life, I am a very organized writer. I like to write beginnings, middles, and endings in my stories in that order. This gives me a story timeline and lets me get inside the minds of my characters as if I am going through what is happening to them. read more→
We're so thrilled to announce the release of Kristen's new book which is already getting great buzz and positive previews
This is a small book of thoughtful sayings, and short tales that will teach you how to nourish the “self within” and become whole. Each segment begins with a life statement and ends with a Nourishing Thought coming from an eclectic mix of writers, historical figures, actors, and ancient spiritual sages. From Mark Twain to Buddha to Katharine Hepburn to Julius Caesar, to a surprisingly, serious statement made by the Queen of Comedy, Lucille Ball, the sayings offer practical advice on living a nourishing, positive life. Each “nourishing thought” will help you towards having your own “great sense of self.”
This holistic way of living your life is beneficial to all within your sphere. It has a healthy domino effect. Like the abundant spread of wildflowers in meadows, the seeds from loving and caring for yourself will subtly bring their beauty to everyone in your life. Your healthy attitude will influence everything in your world.
Nourishing Thoughts is a great book to read on its own and is a wonderful companion book to Kristen's top-selling book, And Then I'll Be Happy! Enjoy!
