Chrysalis and Clan
By Jae Mazer

Series Description:

This series is the complete first part of a novel, Chrysalis and Clan, that is due to be published in March 2017.

*This series contains explicit content, and some trigger warnings. Please be aware it is not for everyone.*

 

There is a war festering that threatens life as we know it, but it is a war we will never see. It is cloaked beneath the skin of our loved ones, our neighbors, and the strangers on the corner. And it is all consuming.

 

Beth is successful, grounded, and happy. That is until a disasterous visit with her mother, Ava, who is suffering from dementia. This visit, the final visit with her mother, plants seeds of doubt in Beth's mind about who she really is or, rather, what she really is. Beth chooses to indulge her doubt and curiosity by entertaining her mother's ludicrous claims.

 

But there is another side to the story. A side that not only believes Ava's tales of lineage, but is hell-bent on stopping them.

 

Chrysalis and Clan is a tapestry of ghosts, of extraterrestrial creatures, and of demons that will make you shudder each time you see the back of your eyelids.

 

Which side are you rooting for?

Author Bio For Jae Mazer:

I am a proud Canadian, born and raised. My life began in Victoria, British Columbia, and continued in Alberta before I headed south in 2010 to Houston, Texas.

I grew up reading novels drenched in horror and science fiction, and I was drawn to cinema and television that fell into those genres as well. Before the age of ten I had read Dean Koontz's Watchers, Stephen King's The Shining, and Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. Before I hit my teenaged years I had polished off Robert McCammon's Swan Song, where it remains a favourite of mine to this day. As for the screen, in a single weekend my dad and I (much to my mom's dismay when she later found out) blazed through great horror and space classics including The Exorcist, Poltergeist, and Star Wars. Between the books and the flicks, I grew deep and early roots set in this genre, and that is where I now weave my webs.

Is that all I do? Sit around, coffee or booze in hand, writing madly as my skin grows ever paler under the dim glow of an office light? No, there is another me as well. A me that wrangles a spirited, lovable toddler, day in and day out. There is also the me that loves music; I play saxophone in a concert band, flute in a flute choir, teach piano lessons from my home, and play the violin just for the hell of it. Then there is the me that likes lazing in the pool, drinking spirits and wine, enjoying the southern sun. Writing, wrangling, music, and lounging. Life is good.

To date I have three novels published, all in the horror genre, with touches of the supernatural and science fiction sprinkled within. My novels are, in chronilogical order of release:

Landing in Eden: released February 2015

Delivery: released August 2015

Pal Tailor: released December 2015

Gahl's Door: release date TBA

I hope that people like my stories. Some people will not. Some will be offended, some turned off by my language, violence, and/or liberal politics. And that's okay. I write only what I enjoy and what I feel. My goal is to entertain, and I simply might not be your cup of tea. So have a sip, and if you like it, I will be brewing for many more years to come.
