Lin Boelz Announces New Release

vampire dollsAuthor Lin Boelz is pleased to announce the release of his new horror novel: Vampire Dolls.

Everyone knows vampires cannot enter your home unless you invite them. But dolls are welcome in any home. A lone vampire hunter witnesses an ancient ritual that moves the evil spirit of a murdered vampire, into a Victorian doll.

Adocinda, spurred on by her drive to subjugate humans and rebuild her vampire clan, now inhabits a new body. No one suspects the evil within the beautiful doll.

Alden fears he knows the truth, but even the hunters do not believe what he tells them. By the time they realize the truth, it could be too late.

Vampire Dolls was released on October 11, 2012 and is available through, Amazon UK, and Smashwords.

IU is brought to you in part by…


Indies Unlimited is brought to you in part by Fish Byproducts Incorporated, makers of fine cosmetics and household products.

Our research shows that indie authors are more likely than normal well-adjusted people to own cats. It’s also likely that if you’ve retained any part of a personal hygiene regimen, it probably includes the occasional use of mouthwash.

The problem of course, is that minty-fresh breath doesn’t really impress cats. When it comes to cuddle-time with your kitty, why not use a mouthwash with a scent preferred by cats 2-1 over other leading brands?

That’s right—with Fishterine, you can fight germs and have the fishy-fresh breath that cats adore. Now available in Terrific Tuna, Sumptuous Salmon, and new Magnificent Mackerel. Buy some today! Available wherever fine fish-scented products are sold.
