Rabidly Reads and Writes: Heart pounding, spine chilling, emotion-stirring Dark Fantasy Novels
About the Author:
C.R. Richards loves dark fiction stories. She enjoys the sensation of sitting on the edge of her seat, intensely anxious to discover the next twist in a good book. Yes. She loves being scared, but not too scared. No slasher movies, please. In a secret confession, the author admitted she still watches reruns of Supernatural tucked under her covers.
Richards makes her books all about the characters. She spends a great deal of time developing their personalities, desires and their failings. If the reader doesn’t care about the character, then what’s the point?
What I’m Looking for In My Ideal Reader:
Adventures with me won’t be comfortable or light-hearted. Expect journeys into the dark and creepy. My ideal reader will boldly embrace the unexpected, laugh in the face of danger and fortify their reading nook with the warm fuzziness of a loyal pet.
I’m looking for a reader who seeks spine-tingling thrills. And when things take an emotional turn, my ideal reader isn’t afraid to grieve with me. In other words, they will stick it out from beginning to end…of the series.
Oh Right. Must like pets. I keep a few flesh-eating creatures in the basement. They’re well behaved. I promise.

They build a stronghold – Stone Fang Fortress – in the Bloodtooth Mountains of the north. It is here they prepare to conquer the free world.
Will Seth find this powerful relic before the Jackal swarm invades Andara? Or will his people be enslaved under the iron fist of the Jackal Lord? Seth’s answers hide in the deadly bogs of North Marsh…
