13 Days of Halloween

Today on my blog for my 13 Days of Halloween is one of my favorite authors JD Nelson. I just adore her and her books. So let's get started. 

For my contribution to Sabrina's Paranormal Palace's 13 Day of Halloween, I decided to talk about some of my favorite Stephen King books...because nothing is scarier than Stephen King's books! 

Up first...


This may not be the most gruesome of his books, but it's probably the scariest thing I’ve ever read. Death is scary. Really scary. And when little bald doctors are running around snipping people's lifelines, it's terrifying! If you haven't read this book, READ IT!

Atropos (The Random Killer of the Little Bald Doctors)

Next up...

The Shining

Okay, I'll be honest, The Shining book wasn't nearly as scary to me as the Stanley Kubrick’s film. I mean, come on, I’m a twin and this even scares me. 

That being said, the thought of someone you love going mad and chasing to to your death is too realistic not to be afraid of it. That could really happen!!!

This next one needs no introduction...


Holy. Shit.

This one is a toughie for me. The book was scary and detailed in a way that truly was more frightening than the movie, but...uh, Tim Curry. He catapulted this film into everyone's worst nightmares. I'm having trouble just looking at the gif!

Up next we have...

The Tommyknockers

Aliens…need I say more? There is very little that freaks me out more than the thought of something being "out there". My mom and I saw a blue lit, circular UFO when I was teenager, and a couple years later, my best friend, me and two sailors we picked up at Mardi Gras (try not to focus on that too were traveling down a lonely country road in Alabama, and this bright, flashing sphere seemed to be traveling next to the car. To say we were freaked out is an understatement! We slammed on brakes and the sphere kept traveling the way it was going.
I like to chalk it up to be some government conspiracy since we were close to an Air Force base, but there is this thought in the back of my mind that's screaming, "What if it was a real alien?"

And then there's...


This is another example of the book being slightly less scary than the movie. Telekinesis can be scary, but I think we can all agree that the end where she dreams Carrie is reaching out of the grave to grab her was the scariest part of the movie!

And this one...

The Stand

This may be the longest book I've ever read. So. Damn. Worth. It. I'm not a huge fan of post-apocalyptic themes, however, this book will always be a favorite of mine. The fight between good and evil, hell, the depictions of good and evil are legendary. I consider this to be King's masterpiece. Could you imagine 99.4% of the population dying?

Most realistic horror book ever...


Scared of dogs? Well, you will be!

One word...Gage...

Pet Semetary

Undead kids. Undead cats. Ghostly dreams. So. Much. Nope. 

Well, there you have it! Thanks for reading and a huge thanks to Sabrina for having me!!!

About JD Nelson

 JD Nelson is a Bestselling Author of Fantasy Romance and Erotic Paranormal Romance. She is also the owner of Chaste Moon Publishing, an independent publishing house. A transplant from Mobile, Alabama, she gave up Mardi Gras and frequent hurricanes to move to the earthquake capital of the United States, the San Francisco Bay Area. She now lives in Central Valley, California with her amazingly supportive husband and four cats who think they're dogs. 
     Always short on time, JD has long ago mastered the art of procrastination and was recently crowned Procrastinator of the Year by her editor, which is only slightly better than her being voted Most Likely to Waste Time by Watching Vampire Movies by her readers last year. All jokes aside, JD is a boringly normal person who thinks that coffee pretty much fixes everything ... as long as it's before 6:30AM and the planet Mars is in retrograde. When she's not spending time with her sexy Swedish husband, you can find her writing, reading, or on her commute to her day job where she wrangles paint onto canvas for the entertainment industry. 
     JD loves to hear from her readers. You can contact her through her website,, or on Facebook, where she spends an alarming amount of time chatting to her many author and reader friends, much to the dismay of her continually neglected manuscripts.
