Dog Days of August blog by Alexandra Ivy

If anyone follows my Facebook page, you’ll know that I recently adopted a gorgeous silver lab that I named Levet after the silly gargoyle in my Guardians of Eternity series. I have tumbled head over heels in love and he’s spoiled to the point of insanity. He’s taken over my couch, he gets a new toy or treat each time I go to the store, and I spend at least two afternoons a week taking him on playdates. It’s no wonder he has no idea that he’s my pet, not my child.

But as much as I adore my dog, I actually prefer my movie canines to be mad, bad, and dangerous. Probably because I love horror flicks. So, for the Dog Days of August, I’ve chosen a few of my favorites. If you have a few hours to spare you might give one of them a try.

  1. Hounds of the Baskerville
  2. Cujo
  3. American Werewolf in London
  4. The Omen
  5. The Breed
  6. Hellhounds
  7. Wolf Town
  8. Pet Cemetery II
  9. Devil Dog
  10. Atomic Dog

She’s Learned All About Killers

They aren’t the kind of women anyone misses. Truck-stop hookers, runaways . . . no one would even notice they’d disappeared if the killer didn’t photograph their lifeless bodies, posed in the back of a semi-trailer. Exactly like the infamous Trucker murders. But this isn’t just a copycat. It’s a vendetta.

Now He’ll Teach Her

Carmen Jacobs interviewed the world’s most terrifying serial killers for her bestselling book, The Heart of a Predator. The police might not believe her, but she knows there’s a monster out there, paying homage to other murderers. The only person who can predict where he’ll strike next is Griffin Archer—a reclusive software millionaire with ample reason not to help her.

How To Die . . .

Carmen has charmed her way past Griffin’s defenses before. He didn’t intend to let it happen again. But with a psycho sending her trophies of his kills, he has no choice but to get involved. The clues point to a killer obsessed with Carmen—someone who knows her work, her past, her secrets. Someone who won’t be satisfied until he has made all her deepest fears come true . . .
