I did not expect Demon Within Audiobook to go as well as it has. I attribute this to the amazing performance by Scott Richard Ehredt, who is, my hero. Demon Within is a paranormal fantasy romance and is epic enough to rival Game of Thrones.
Demon Within has constantly hovered in and around the Amazon Paranormal Top 100 sales…and has never left Amazon’s Top 100 Hot New Releases and is currently sitting at 30 at the time of this post.

Eloise straightened her spine and let her head fall back, her soft hair fell across his thighs, and he moaned at the coolness against his skin. Sliding his hand over her mound, and with tantalizingly slow and delicate touches, ran the soft pad of his thumb over her clitoris. Slowly circling in delicate precision, Eloise’s breaths hastened. Kai raised his hips and made subtle thrusts, bringing her quickening breaths to gasping moans. The hooded nub hardened beneath his caress, and Eloise felt her body tremble. Her orgasm began, rushing over her in a wild eruption of pleasure causing her to shudder uncontrollably. Kai’s hand surrounded her breast; fingers and thumb pinched her peaked nipple causing her to cry out in a mixture of exquisite pain and pleasure. She fell forward as the last ripple of her climax ended and Kai pulled her close and bucked fiercely then exploded inside her. Eloise braced her hands either side of his head and leaned forward, she met each thrust of Kai’s hips with gasping breaths. Hissing through gritted teeth, he groaned loudly, and once the last of him spilled into Eloise’s heat, he pulled her close. Resting her cheek against his fiercely beating heart, she sighed with contentment.
‘I’m so happy…tell me this isn’t a dream.’ Eloise’s words fell against his rising chest in wispy breaths.
Kai squeezed her tightly and groaned. ‘If it is, we’re both dreaming.’
‘Then I never want to wake.’
Eloise raised her head from his chest and kissed him softly.
I woke up one morning and this story was in my head. It’s very self-effacing, funny, erotic and is only a short story. It’s available on Amazon for just 99c and is also available on Audible, iTunes and Amazonaudio as an audiobook.
Check out the vid!
Listen to a sample on Soundcloud and read the excerpt below.
Excerpt from Fantazia by Elize Love (Julie Nicholls)
His infectious laugh was too hard to resist and I don’t know who laughed the hardest, but it took a while for us to stop laughing, even after we got in the car and started driving to the club.
I kept shaking my head in disbelief. This was so weird. The club was a godsend and a miracle. Oh wait… does that mean Liam is an angel after all?
“Tell me about the club, Jasper”
“It’s special. Very special.”
“Duh, I see that. Spill, what’s the secret?”
“Each room is enchanted and every person that goes in experiences something different depending on what they need.”
I blinked and though for a moment.
“They helped me because I needed an orgasm?”
His hearty laugh filled the car.
“No, it’s not just about that. Think about what actually happened, from the start.”
The first thing I recalled was the time issue. It was in slow motion and we couldn’t move at normal speed.
“Did you ever have those dreams where you’re trying to run away, but couldn’t? It was like your feet were too heavy to move? It’s your minds way of telling you that you can’t run away and you have to deal with it. If the room hadn’t done that, you would have been out of there in seconds and out the door. Right?”
He slowly turned to look at me and couldn’t even dignify him with a return glance. I was unable to reply. It made perfect sense.
“Elsa, you okay?”
“Yes, I’m fine.”
“Do you want me to continue?”
I’d like to welcome Scott Richard Ehredt as my first guest on my new site!
Scott is the narrator of Demon Within, and if you’ve heard the sample, you will appreciate how amazingly talented he is! He is an actor, a narrator, a speaker a singer, and much more. He has just released his first book, The Sacrificial Wolf, which is the first book in a series of three, and he’s joined us today to tell us a little more about it, and himself.
Hello Scott! Thank you for joining me, let us get started shall we?
I know a little about you because of our chats, but would you be kind enough to tell the viewers who you are, what you do, and what you are currently working on?
I’m a single male, living just outside of Los Angeles. I like long walks on the beach and candlelight dinn….
That’s for a different website.
ROFLMAO!!! I would just like to mention at this point, that this man, is a nutter…and it’s probably why we get on so well. Please…continue.
As you mentioned, I’m an actor, narrator, singer, and, as of this month, an author! I’ve been fortunate to have always made my living in one or another of these arts – which is no small task in Los Angeles. Hollywood breeds more waiters, bartenders and valet-car-park-attendants than actors! I was Emceeing for a national touring company last year when some musicians in the show turned me on to ACX. Once I realized that touring is not as much fun as it was when I was 20…… I came home, built a recording booth, registered on ACX and, thanks to wonderful authors like YOU…I’m off the road and narrating audiobooks!
Yay!!! *smug mode*
I have to tell you at this point…that as of today, we’ve sold 146 copies of the audiobook in 19 days!!!!(And I say ‘we’ because that’s how I think of the audio version, a joint effort.) I am amazed and I truly believe, it’s because of Scott’s performance. Okay, we’re back on track now, and the real reason you’re here is to tell us about your latest book which has just been released.
Where did you get the idea for your book series? What or who was the motivation?
THAT is an odd story. I was a huge fan of Ian Fleming’s Bond series and Forsythe, Ludlum, and other espionage/thriller authors. So in the late 80s I got my first PC and promptly realized I didn’t know what the hell to do with it. There wasn’t even internet yet! I was fooling around with it, opened some programs, and found a word processor. I thought….hmmmmmm…I should write a story. I remember it so well….a black screen with green letters (I wish I could get Word to have that same look. I LIKED IT!) So I started an “improv.” I wrote, “David Callen wasn’t sure what had awakened him.” The name came out of nowhere and I had no outline or anything. I just started to use my actor’s improv skills and off I went. I eventually had to step back and figure some things out with a rough outline. But writing, to me as an actor, is the ultimate improv. You need a prop? You write in the prop. A location? Boom! You’re there. The Walter Mitty complex is strong in me – so Callen and The Sacrificial Wolf came easy!
That’s amazing and shows how talented an actor you are because you could jump right in there!! I have read your book, and loved it, and I dare anyone to say they didn’t!
When you made the decision to start narrating books, did you find it easy, given your acting background?
Perhaps not “easy”… but a lot of fun! Yes, my training and experience as an actor really shortened the learning curve for the reading portion of the process. I love it! Each book is a one-man show – a tour de force and a lot of fun. The editing and the whole production end is more like work. With some great pointers from friends and the helpful folks at ACX, however, I was up and running in no time. Acting IS fun, but it also involves a great deal of work and prep time. Back stories and situations and such are where a voice comes from when one works as I do – from a “method” style of acting. To just ‘put on a voice’ is cheating, in my world. It has to come from within to be believable. I also then ‘cast’ most of the characters. So you may hear hints of familiarity in some of the voices – from Sean Connery and Richard Burton to Roger Moore and Liv Ullman. But mostly, it’s just me. The most challenging parts are the female voices. I try to make the voice feminine, but have to be careful it is not a caricature of a female voice. Again, if I achieve this, as I hope I do, it’s because it comes from within.
I confess! I tried to listen to a very famous audio book about thrones and …chairs.. *grinning* and the narrator put on squeaky voices for the ladies…drove me nuts..so I am pleased you realize that isn’t good, and make them listenable!
Your book has just released in both eBook and paperback, when can we expect an audiobook?
Ohhhhhhhhh damn. I really want to do it! But I have commitments for books two and three in another trilogy as well as books two and three in YOUR trilogy! It’s certainly a very good thing to have work lined up for months in advance…but it will delay getting my own book done. What is that old saying? The farrier’s horse is never shod? Yup. It’s like that. But I have to tell you, having finished Demon Within a month ago, I miss Kai and friends! I’m REALLY looking forward to Angel Within!
*Feeling rather smug at that* I LOOOVe that you miss Kai and the gang… and I really can’t wait for you start Angel Within….once I’ve checked it for…overuse of certain phrases….shall we say?? lol
What makes you get up in the morning?
What the hell kind of question is that!? Haha Okay. It’s a good one. Well, I live blissfully alone. And as Sartre said, “If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.” I love life and live it in good company. I get up to do work I love…and to ride. I seriously do live to ride. I have two horses, aptly nam. ed Solitaire and Solitude, and they are always on my mind when I wake.
There’s nothing wrong with being alone if you enjoy it and I confess, sometimes it’s good to be able to hear yourself and not others. Iam a horse lover and envy that you have two horses and are able to ride out in the dessert.
So back to writing…How soon may we expect book two from your series?
If you could clone me please, or add another 12 or so hours to each day, I’d say soon! But probably sometime in 2016 is more realistic. It’s fully written in my head and about half written on paper. I’m looking forward to finding a month when I can disappear and visit my old friends David Callen and his daughter, Michelle. I tend to obsess, BADLY when I get started…so I’m going to need to set aside time in a neutral space and just DO IT! The good news is that when those circumstances are right, it pours out onto the paper pretty quickly.
This is good, and I agree. You cannot force yourself to write…I know peeps do…but I truly believe it’s better if you just let it come when it’s ready! Good luck with that Scott, I know I’ll be waiting to get my grubby mits on it.
Are there any people who you’ve met, that have inspired you, either in your acting, or in your personal life?
Too many to name and too much danger of leaving someone out if I do! But I will say that, as an actor, I learn a little something from EVERY person I meet and every personal experience. An actor is like a chameleon or a sponge. We soak up as much of humanity as possible. I remember a
wonderful university professor named Knox Fowler. When my grandfather died, I went to the funeral about 90 minutes away from the university. Knox was going to be passing through and offered to give me a ride back. As he drove, it was very quiet in the car and I was looking out the window thinking of my grandfather – remembering his life and mourning the loss. Knox reached over and put his hand on my shoulder and said, “I don’t mean to be crass, but remember this. Remember everything you’re feeling. It’ll come in handy one day.” I did. It has.
That was a powerful statement on his behalf, and I totally agree given your career. Fabulous. I know you don’t like to expose yourself, *snort*, but given you’re an author now, pimping is part of the deal… so…spill…What do you do when you’re not writing or narrating?
I ride my horses. Or hang out at the beach on occasion. But mostly, I ride…sometimes in the mountains for days on end. I’ve been married 5 times but Solitaire, at 13 years, is my longest consistent female relationship. HA! She is my girlfriend. And her son, Solitude, is my best friend.
Oooooh!!!! She’s a nice filly then? Well, I guess you just like the taste of wedding cake?
When you’ve finished with the Blood Trilogy, what will you be writing next? Do you have anything in the pipeline?
I do! It’s fiction, but mostly based in fact -the history of my parents and their families during the WWII era. It’s called Stars in the Window. Over the last 15 years, I’ve written disjointed chapters here and there. It’s going to be epic…if and when I stitch them all together with a coherent plot.
That sounds very interesting and I believe already it’s going to be well received.
Scott, you are a wonderful person and every day since we met via ACX I enjoy our chats and giggles. I have enjoyed interviewing you immensely, and hope you will return after you finally get that 2nd book written? Also, you and I have another appointment with Kai and the gang so maybe we can have a little tete-a-tete then?
You can purchse Scott’s book The Sacrificial Wolf from Amazon on eBook and paperback.
