S.D. Moore on Spiritualists, water gazing + what happens when evil comes through the spirit door

Wicked Prayers received a 4+ star review, making it an IndieReader Approved title.

Following find an interview with author S.D. Moore.

What is the name of the book?

Wicked Prayers.

What’s the book’s first line? 

“Neither shall thou evoke the spirits by way of wicked prayers; for some prayers are not meant to be answered.”

What’s the book about? Give us the “pitch”. 

Wicked Prayers is filled with unwavering action in which a woman unwittingly evokes a wicked prayer that unleashes evil on the imaginary city of Autumntown, WA.  Two small city detectives and an unusual band of heroes desperately fight to thwart the evil being and his infectious creatures called Leapers.  May no more dark doors be opened again.

What inspired you to write the book? A particular person? An event? 

As a child I watched a very religious woman try to contact her dead sister by placing a letter to her on top of a glass of water sitting on her nightstand before she said her bedtime prayers.  Spiritualists call this water gazing.  I used Wicked Prayers to explore the question of “what if evil came through that spirit door” in grand horror novel fashion.

What’s the main reason someone should really read this book? 

Like Kirkus Reviews says, it has  “...cheer worthy battles” and “…unending entertainment.”
