Presenting the Marriage of Kelli Anne & Gerri Denemer by PD Alleva - Book Blast and Giveaway

The Denemer's had it all: Fame, fortune, family, and the American Dream. But tough times have landed on their doorstep— Gerri's acting career is mired in controversy, financial decline is strangling the family bond, and his marriage to Kelli Anne is on the rocks. He'd rather die than face another catastrophe, something the Devil is more than eager to assist. On the night Gerri attempts to end his suffering, his plan is thwarted by a voice in his smart TV, pulling him into a dimension where past, present, and future collide, and the fate of the human race hangs in the balance. But Gerri is not alone. The Devil's minions are nipping at his heels and Kelli is right behind them, determined to save her family and put right what has gone wrong. Will they be successful? Is the bond between husband and wife strong enough to defeat evil? Will they prevent World War III or will evil's plan triumph? Presenting the Marriage of Kelli Anne and Gerri Denemer: A Horror Story, is a tour de force thriller of dark fiction, romance, and horror in an epic battle between good and evil.


He ran to the house, struggling through the wind that sought to push him over, to deter him from entering that house. 

“No, Gerri,” the chaperone hollered. “Do NOT go in there!”

But Gerri quickened his pace.

The chaperone was in front of him.

He turned to go around him.

The chaperone was in front of him.

He jerked to the left, running at max speed.

The chaperone was in front of him, pushed Gerri to the ground. Picked him up and clasped Gerri’s shoulders with an iron hand. 

“It’s not allowed, Gerri.”

“What’re you talking about? I just want to go home.”

The chaperone laughed. He started pacing, circling Gerri with his hand on Gerri’s shoulder.

“What do you think, Gerri, hang yourself and you get to go back home? No, no, no, Gerri. Look around you. You’re not even close to home!”

“What? That can’t be!”

“Between worlds, Gerri! That’s where you are. What’s in that house is nothing. Nothing more than the slither of energy you left, the portal of death with the stink of fear. You’re not welcome there. Not welcome at all.” He slipped his hand off Geri’s shoulder. Stepped an arm’s length away from him. 

“No, no, no, this can’t be! This can’t be.”

“Oh, yes, Gerri, it can, and it is.”

The chaperone paused. 

“It’s best that you come with me Gerri.”

Gerri screamed, “Where did I go wrong?”

The chaperone stiffened. 

He turned to the house and paused.


What should readers expect when they pick up your book?

Suspense with information discovered during Gerri’s (and Kelli’s) journey through an alternate dimension. Darkness and evil who rely on Gerri’s fear to drive their ultimate plan to cause World War III.  A unique blend of characters and plot twists with past, present and future dimensions influenced by fear and misunderstanding. And an enduring love that trifles through the past to reset the present with an ultimate goal of redemption.

Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way?

There have been a lot of authors and books that have had great influence on my writing. Most notable author would be Ernest Hemingway. His minimalist style and subtle nuances into what embodies the human condition is paramount in the writing field. 

Have you based any of your characters on someone you know, or real events in your own life?

Yes and no. I draw information from personal experiences. Essentially the roller coaster that is life, taking into account trials and tribulations and lessons learned.  As a writer there’s always a bit of ourselves in each character whether that character represents who we were, who we are or who we would like to be depends on the circumstance that drives that plot.

Three of your all time favourite books and why?

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley: I’ve read it four times, the first go around was in high school and I’ve been hooked ever since. Man vs. Himself, Man vs. God, Man vs. Society and Man vs. Man. This book incorporates all the great themes that make a great story. 

The Shining by Stephen King: Why? It’s King’s masterpiece. 

Most recently The Hunger Games: While writing my current project, The Rose, my research included reading books in the dystopian genre. Of course this book topped many of the lists for the best dystopian novels. I found the book fascinating, well written (although there were a few typos), and kept my interest. Honestly I wasn’t expecting the book to be that good. Pleasant surprises are always the best. 

Have you started your next project?

I’m currently wriitng book four in the series, The Rose. It’s a dystopian sci-fi set at the tale end of World War III. The rose is a meditation used by alchemists. Alchemy is the ability to transform chemical structures. Also a useful tool when battling alien vampires. The Rose is  a prelude to a trilogy titled The Indigo Trials which will be released next year. After The Rose, I’ll be writing book four in this series about a 1940’s New York socialite whose sculpture comes to life after a break up with the love of her life. Think Frankenstein meets My Fair Lady. Title is Golem, a psychologial supernatural thriller. I have nine books planned in the Beyond the Chamber Door Series.

What is your favorite TV show?

Ozark. Jason Bateman has come a long way since he used to battle with Mrs. Pool on the sitcom Valerie back in the 80’s.
