DON'T KISS DESIREE CHAPELLE! Yes, Desirée is beyond beautiful. Seductive even as a child, she seems every man's erotic dream, a fantasy woman possessing charms that no man can resist. And therein lies the problem. Because if you are a young man with bubbling testosterone you had better resist her. In fact, you should run like hell. Whether it's an innocent kids' game of Spin The Bottle or a grope fest in the back of an old van, you would be wise to keep repeating . . . DON'T KISS DESIREE CHAPPELLE! But someone is wise to Desirée, someone who knows her secrets and who has a very personal reason to uncover the truth no matter what it will take, no matter what it will cost. Someone who knows she has to destroy her . . .

Ken Goldman says:
"Desiree" (Damnation Books) by Ken Goldman is slowly getting some buzz in horror circles. Here is a tale of a beautiful young woman who literally carries the kiss of death. That's not good for any woman hoping to score a second date. Withersin Magazine reviewer Adam Armstrong writes : "This short book just enwraps you from the start. It is a wonderful and engaging story that is fun to drink down in one big gulp. The non-linear timeline helped raise the tension and kept me reading . . . Five stars."
House of Horror says :"Desiree is a weird and wonderful tale by author Ken Goldman . . ."
T. W. Brown, author of The Dead : The Ugly Beginning, writes "Desiree is a novella that reads fast and makes you squirm all the way to the end. It is a slick, dark tale that sucks you right in."
And Page Horrific's review mentions : "Mr. Goldman shows definite flashes of brilliance in his descriptive prose and atmospherics."
In addition, Benjamin Kane Ethridge (author of the novel "Black and Orange") recommended "Desiree" for The Horror Writers Association's 2010 Stoker Award in the Long Fiction category. "Desiree" is available at The Damnation Books site in downloadable .pdf file, and at Amazon.com in print and Kindle formats.

He is currently working on a novel, "...Of A Feather," which should be completed during 2012. (You hear that, publishers?)
