Not all exorcists are created equal- especially those that are “marked”.


When defrocked ex-priest, Jimmy Holiday, agrees to help an old friend’s sick daughter, Lucy, he unearths unexpected horrors. Blackmoor, his friend’s new residence, has a dark history that makes it appear almost alive. Jimmy must decide if Lucy is only ill, or if the haunting of the house and her apparent possession are real.

After the house begins affecting him as well; seeing colors of magic and his voice taking on an unusual power, Jimmy discovers that he is apparently “marked”. Whatever being “marked” means, Jimmy doesn’t care. He wants to help Lucy. Helping Lucy means performing the exorcism.

Jimmy knows the ceremony, but it's belief that matters. And if a demon is using a little girl as a meatsuit, his faith had better be strong enough to kick it back to Hell. Otherwise, he might damn them both.

Here's what

Fans are saying


Sorrow’s Point is an explosive read! I read this book in one sitting and could not put it down until the end. It has elements of horror as well as love and humor. This makes the book unique and gives it depth through each character.

The main characters of this book are “ex priest” and a Wiccan which caught my attention immendiately. This is an unusual pairing, but it actually creates a good synergy throughout the book and touches on what it really means to have faith. Not religion. Faith.

Jimmy Holiday is the only person that a friend turns to when his daughter begins to behave abnormally. This book goes into the many steps that it will take to be granted an exorcism as well as providing a horrific first hand glance into the world of demons and possession.

It is a must read for those of you looking for a new take on the demonic and with some interesting plot twists along the way.



Move over, Stephen King. 
Danielle DeVor is on her way!

First let me say that this isn’t my usual reading genre, and that I haven’t picked up a scary book in years. My kids know better than to try to take me to a scary movie – I scream and flinch way too easily.

But as a teen, I devoured everything by Stephen King, read Edgar Allen Poe under the covers with a flashlight, and read The Amityville Horror, Jaws, and everything by V.C. Andrews over the same hot (scary) summer.

Sorrow’s Point took me back to those days. A well-crafted classic tale of horror and suspense, it reminded me of a combination of The Shining and Amityville Horror rolled together, with a protagonist ex-priest that I actually liked and rooted for, despite his personal shortcomings.

I love the interactions between Jimmy and Tabby, and found the juxtaposition of witchcraft, demonology and Catholic faith fascinating. However, I wouldn’t recommend reading this at night, or if you’re alone in the house. There are some seriously scary parts!

If you’re looking to scare yourself a bit with a well-crafted tale, pick up this book. You won’t be disappointed.
