Book Review for The Mermaid's Daughter by Ann Claycomb

Book Review for The Mermaid's Daughter by Ann Claycomb
THE MERMAID’S DAUGHTER is part love story, part fairy tale, and part magical retelling of the classic tale of the “The Little Mermaid”. It is a beautifully dark and passionate re-imagining which is only enhanced by the eloquence of the author’s words. The well developed characters and their relation...

Book Review for SIX STORIES by Matt Wesolowski

Book Review for SIX STORIES by Matt Wesolowski
SIX STORIES is a unique, refreshing, and positively creepy thriller that has the reader to constantly trying to figure out what the “real” story is. Hands down, this is one of the most addictive approaches to a thriller that I have read in a while. What I love the best was how the story unfolded as ...

Guest Post: It's Such a (Pitch) Perfect Day by Matt Wesolowski

Guest Post: It's Such a (Pitch) Perfect Day by Matt Wesolowski
Writing crime was never an aspiration of mine. Horror, now that was my 'thing', that was me, that's how I saw myself; perhaps a sepia-drenched photograph of me holding a skull on a book sleeve or staring moodily at a wood... Garth Marenghi  eat your heart out! By my late 20s I had a handful of ...

New Release! SOMETHING IN THE WAY by Jessica Hawkins

New Release! SOMETHING IN THE WAY by Jessica Hawkins
It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each othe...

Book Review for The Possessions by Sara Flannery Murphy

Book Review for The Possessions by Sara Flannery Murphy
Suspenseful, thought provoking, and refreshingly honest. Murphy’s debut is part mystery, part ghost story, and part romance. She breaks down the essence of her characters so that the reader is constantly guessing who they really are. What I loved about this book is the premise behind it and the ques...
