My name's Leroy Smith. I recently adapted numerous screenplays to e-book format. I have many horror books and comedy/horror novellas and short stories in the Kindle store. I'm an award-winning fiction writer, journalist and tech writer who has participated in national and regional poetry slams.

I have several novellas and stories you might enjoy. Here are a few of them.

Real Vampires Don't Dance Old-school Vampire Vili is disgusted by the new, "hot" vampires. He hates Dusk the teen-aged vampire show. He hates Evening, the Dusk Cologne, and he hates vampires who go to boutique hair salons, like Hairy Nation. He shows Miami what a real vampire is all about-a terrifying, bloodthirsty horror.

Tourist Trappers: A band on their way home from the South by Southwest Festival is baited to a hotel called Tourist Trappe, run by 4 crusty old frontier-styled trappers. Their motel is filled with traps for anybody unlucky enough to believe their lying road signs.

Tourist Trappers (Paranormal Pulp)

Amish Country aka The Hills Have . . Straw Hats Sociology students go on a weekend road trip to Lancaster, PA to study the Amish culture. They get more than they bargain for when they end up at a farm filled with psychos who have been drinking benzene tainted well-water for decades.

My recommendation is for the Pulp Heroes novels, More than Mortal and Khan Dynasty, and also for the newest one by the same author, Modern Marvels - Viktoriana.

You might like MONSTER for only 99 cents.

MONSTER

They needed a monster to get a little girl back. They imprisoned him for the way he did it. Now they need the monster again to do what he does best.

FBI Special Agent Diane Reskova waited with her team for a tracker to arrive on site in the Caribou Wilderness of California. A psychopath pursued unsuccessfully for two years by Reskova's team had kidnapped California Senator Fred Hokanson's niece, dragging her into the surrounding mountains. Hokanson recruits Jeremiah McDaniels unbeknownst to Reskova as the tracker. McDaniels, a Delta Force Colonel with CIA background, leads the FBI agents after Hughes. Ditching Reskova and her team, McDaniels saves Hokanson's niece and beheads her kidnapper, Stanton Hughes.

After an off-hand remark McDaniels makes concerning a movie while accepting blame for the Hughes' fiasco, the press label him `Cold Mountain'. Taken into custody on Reskova's orders, McDaniels avoids prison by public outcry and Senator Hokanson's intervention. With Hokanson's shadowy sponsorship, McDaniels becomes the enforcement arm of Reskova's team. With Kumar Rasheed, an Iraqi whose family McDaniels had saved during the second Iraq war, McDaniels supplies Reskova with a weapon she has neither asked for nor condones.

Funneled between America and Iraq, McDaniels stays one step ahead of American bureaucrats more interested in appearances than the safety of the country. Reskova, at first repulsed by McDaniels' methods, soon embraces both the enigmatic McDaniels and his tactics. Reskova threads McDaniels and his Iraqi comrade Kumar Rasheed into her anti-terrorism unit with murderous result. McDaniels' background and deadly skills become a point of fascination for the bewildered Reskova as her attraction to McDaniels quickly rivals her dedication to the FBI.

Hello.

I have 2 books available on kindle.

First there is Living With The Edge: The Autobiography of the First British Masked Heroine, Val Phillips The story follows Val Phillips who decides to become a real life superhero called The Edge. Follow her biographical journey through her life as a mask.

The book has just been reviewed by Geek Syndicate. This is what they have to say.

'I love this book and the idea behind it...'

'I loved how a lot of the heroes were clearly based on Marvel and DC characters and where the author expanded on their back story and brought it into the real world. A lot of fun was guessing which†hero†they were talking about.'

'The writing is very good and I truly†believed†that I was reading the†Autobiography of †Val Phillips.'

'The author Luke James Halsall has †lots of great ideas...'

My second book is called Forgotten Lies (The Sam O Hara and Jessica McIntyre Thrillers) the story follows journalist Sam O Hara and Jessica McIntyre. Both think there is something more to the recent death of a police officer. As they delve further into the underbelly they discover that the city and the police force is not what it seemed.

Thanks

Luke

My second novel, Chasing The Dragon, is definitely in this vein:

"Brenda McKenzie is a single mother working double-shifts as a waitress and struggling to make ends meet. But Brenda's life gets turned upside down when her teenage daughter, Alyssa, runs away with Ryan Cunningham, her heroin-dealing boyfriend. With the police providing no assistance, Brenda feels all hope is lost. Until the day a strange man offers his help. His name is Riker Stone and he has a monster lurking inside him-literally. Riker's quest will lead him to Ryan as well as the people who support him. And in his search for revenge, Riker will leave a trail of bodies."

From the Red Band: Extreme Content label...

Austrian-Accented Action Guy: a Kick-Ass Short Story with Cool Dialogue

Paul Thomas Anderson is now officially better than Quentin Tarantino. And I'm not even a fan of either one, but it's still true.

I commented on another thread that Eden Falls by Joe Shrader was fantastic. A ton of action, some quite violent, and an amazing story. I can't find anything on this guy and would love to know if he is working on anything else. But for all you action junkies out there you should definitely check him out

Homecoming Blues Check out this book if you like plenty of action-Coming home from war can be hell.

All Jimmy Dalton wanted after fighting for his country was a quiet life. But a notorious gangster has other ideas and Jimmy finds himself in a war of a different kind. Set on a path of revenge that may turn the streets of London red with blood, a path that may not only destroy those he cares about but also his sanity and his very soul.

Reader Reviews
Andrew,
Your work stands out as a fast-paced blood-and-guts action story in the British underworld made more sinister by the presence of the Russian mafia. Everything pans out like a well-choreographed dance routine with Jimmy in the lead, surrounded by a colourful cast of characters. I can envision this story digitalized for the silver screen, the fast-paced action, the dialogue laced with gangster slang, all there. Thank you so much for a rollicking good read.

Homecoming Blues is a cracking read for sure! The narrative is superb and sucks you into the story through the eyes of the protagonist Jimmy Dalton, a likeable fellow from a rough neighborhood. I normally find that books written in first person tend to annoy me...I'm much more a third-person kind of guy but the characters in this story sound and feel so real that I didn't mind a bit! Thumbs up for Andrew Scorah!
Ian M Graham

Hi Andrew; after reading your first two chapters my overriding impression of your book was gritty, and unashamedly so. The language used by the characters is streetwise and tough. Not many of the books that I have read so far on the site can compare to the darker images you portray.

Andy, Homecoming Blues has made a great start. The three-way conflict keeps us on our toes. The slang even I, an American, can follow. six stars. Keep it coming! jack hudson

PULP INK would have to be on the list, as would BEAT to a PULP: Hardboiled and BEAT to a PULP: Round Two. There are also some collections called Blood & Tacos #2 which are most cool. For a longer read maybe Psychosomatic will do the trick.

I'm aslo in the middle of a really engaging read called Dead Harvest (The Collector) and it's superb.

I'll be looking at some of the recommended titles, most def.

Thanks.

The first in the Death series, all set in Australia. It meets the criteria for violence/sex/death, I think the stories good(I'm biased) but it's worth a read. Has an American input, R&R in Sydney's Kings Cross 1969. Presently editing sequels.

Check out my new action novel D-E-D, DEAD, about an outlaw biker who takes on his club, the cops, the feds, and some angry rednecks to put a dent in the meth trade in northern Alabama in 1990. Violence, lots of action. Not a book for people who like to be told about the style of furniture, brand of wine, etc. Just action, plenty of it.

Hello, may I contribute to the discussion? I'm currently trying to raise awareness of my own novel, which falls into the category you are interested in, so I thought I might as well show you my work as my recommendation. I think you would find it very different and unique from most pulp action-adventure novels, which the book is designed as a tribute to, but at the same time deconstructs and transcends the cliches of the genre. It has action that is quite hardcore, and features a villain with a very macabre sense of humor. It's written as being like the product of a Christopher Nolan/Steven Spielberg collaboration. Look for "Tomb of the Elf King," on the Kindle store, and you should find it. I genuinely think you'll enjoy it, judging from the qualifying elements in your original question. Check it out, and let me know if it's something that strikes your interest.
