TELECOMMUTING by L. Marie Wood

 

Sadie's Review:

 

..

 

I first encountered L. Marie Wood's writing in SLAY: Stories of the Vampire Noire anthology. Her story, THE DANCE was an erotic, girl meets girl story with a dark twist. I mentioned in my review that the sexual tension was off the charts. Several months later, I'm still able to "see" the visuals Wood conjured up in my mind; that's potent!

THE NIGHT STOCKERS by Kristopher Triana & Ryan Harding

 Sadie's Review

Side by Side Reviews: LATER by Stephen King

I'm so excited to introduce to the blog, my parents! They are both HUGE Stephen King fans, Constant Readers and we all got King's Hard Case Crime book, LATER because of Night Worms, so we buddy read it. They only got one copy and took turns reading it so they co-authored their review. I don't really know the process behind how they did that because it sounds like one voice, so I'll just copy & paste what my mom said when she emailed it:

If I could think of anything to relate this book to it would be true blood but in Savannah,GA with ghosts instead of vampires. Sounds interesting, right?
