#BadMoonRising San Miguel’s Treasure by Armand Rosamilia #horror #thriller

I didn’t go back and check, but I’m pretty sure today’s author has been with BMR from the start, and I look forward to his posts every year. Afraid to write a novel in a genre you rarely/never read? Not this guy. He’s done it before and plans to try it again. Welcome Armand Rosamilia!

Which unsolved murder fascinates you the most?

The Zodiac Killer immediately comes to mind, and it is still unsolved despite a couple of groups claiming they’ve solved the case, figured out the cyphers and point a finger at someone. I don’t think this will ever be solved, and it is such a crazy case.

Would you buy a doll that you knew was haunted?

No. Dolls creep me out. Now, if a Funko Pop was haunted but worth money, I might be tempted. My mother has a collection of really creepy dolls and she says they sometimes move from room to room. No thank you.

Do you believe in any ‘mythical’ monsters like chupacabras or shadow people?

I definitely do, although I think they are just normal creatures. We discover dozens of new jellyfish each year like it is nothing. There is so much of the planet still unexplored. Do I think Bigfoot is out there? Probably not. But a Chupacabra would be cool, as long as it doesn’t attack me.

What is your kryptonite as a writer?

Depression. It sidetracks me, sometimes for days. I start to think I’m not good enough, that what I’m writing is awful, and then imposter syndrome kicks in and floors me. It is very hard to fight and I’ve learned to ride the wave until I can trigger something positive that gets me back into the positive zone. Not fun.

Have you ever tried to write a novel in a genre you rarely or never read? 

I have and I will again in the future, because I want to see how far I can go as a writer. If I’d stuck to the same old same old I’d still only be writing horror stories and never have gotten into writing a lot more crime thriller ones, which I love to read. I’ve written some science fiction and fantasy stories, even though I haven’t read either genre in more than twenty years. Maybe I’ll write a romance series someday. Who can say?

If you could be mentored by a famous author, who would it be? 

Dean Koontz, who is the reason I write to begin with. His books really changed my life when I was a teenager, and I devoured all of them. I couldn’t get enough of his work. While most people will say King was their influence, I say it was Koontz for me. I still get excited and read every new release as soon as it comes out.

An ancient curse lies dormant at the bottom of the ocean for over 450 years…

The San Miguel shipwreck has eluded treasure hunters for centuries. Some say it is cursed, others say it can only be found by those with a firm bloodline to the lost crew.

Intensely horrific and thrilling, the hunt for San Miguel’s Treasure will test the mettle of not only the salvagers but the ruthless drug cartel who seek the secrets of the sunken vessel as well!

Will they unwittingly unleash this curse upon themselves and perhaps the world?

  1. I think that’s totally cool how Armand tries different genres. What a way to stretch one’s talents and keep writing exciting. And Koontz was a favorite of mine too, scarier than King. Thanks for featuring Armand, Teri. Another fun post.

    1. I admire him for trying different genres, Diana. Then I think about me trying to write a romance or mystery, and I’m absolutely clueless how I’d start, lol. I was a big fan of Koontz years ago and have several of his books, but I’ve fallen behind with his titles.

  2. I’m late to the party, but trying to catch up, in between debris clean up from Hurricane Ian. LOVED this post, and Armand, I’m with you 100% on Koontz over King! Any day!! Will be checking out San Miguel’s, too! (And Eeeeeek to moving dolls!!!) 😊

    The response for the doll question reminds me of when my Mam had been watching one of those creepy doll movies, came up to check on me before going to bed, saw my neatly lined up dolls, and left the room in a hurry without coming in to check on me. I’m torn between finding it funny the row of dolls staring towards the door freaked her out, and being a bit put out that she was willing to leave me in the apparent clutches of haunted dolls while saving her own skin. LOL!

  4. HI Teri, It is great to see Armand here again. I have a collection of creepy dolls so I should have him over for tea. My niece things mind wander around at night too. I always preferred King to Koontz but I do remember one book about a group of different people in the USA who became transfixed by the sight of the moon. I can’t recall the title but I thought it was very good at the time. I think if you have written 200 books, you are definitely a writer.

    1. I’d love to attend that tea party and take a gander at your creepy doll collection, Robbie. You should do a blog post with pics. I can’t remember which Koontz book that is, but I’m really behind on his novels.
