John's Review of THE ISLE by John C. Foster

John's Review of THE ISLE by John C. Foster

The Isle, By John C. Foster, is a novel of isolation, dread, and small town terror. Part horror and part murder mystery, Foster has crafted a novel in which its greatest strengths are the immersion and atmosphere the reader will experience.

 

U.S. Marshall Virgil Bone is a man with a haunted past. Seemingly at the end of his career, he is assigned the menial task of retrieving the corpse of a fugitive from a small island town off the coast of Maine, but as can be expected, the Isle isn’t what it appears to be. Despite...


Chandra's Review of Growing Things by Paul Tremblay

Chandra's Review of Growing Things by Paul Tremblay

I have a love/hate relationship with short story anthologies.  I have GREAT respect for authors who write these as I feel these are harder to write than the full novel as you're putting an entire story together in under 7,500 words.  Those that do it well, do it WELL and those are the ones I like but I'll be honest, it's very few and far between where they get me.  I am one of those who prefer that full novel, or even the extended short story ala novelette/novella.  It's hard to say I...

Set the scene. You're out to brunch with your best friend. Maybe there are mimosas involved, maybe not. Who am I to say?

You tell them about how the road to your workplace is somehow ALWAYS under construction lately and the most recent book you've read. 


And then it happens. The...

Author Spotlight: Buy, Read, Review and Promote These Fine Authors

It's time for an author spotlight! In this photo are some long-time favorite authors and some new-to-me authors that I'd like to shine a bright light on and encourage readers to buy, read and promote their books!

Ania Ahlborn- Ania is a long-time favorite. The first book I read was, BROTHER and it floored me. I binge-read it in one day. I clearly remember trying to cook food on the stove while holding the book and reading at the same time. If you haven't read any of her work, start there and then work...

Friday Feels- July 26th, 2019

Happy Friday Worms! Today we’re talking about one of my favorite books. I read Perfume by Patrick Suskind earlier this year and it is easily in my top ten favorite books of all time. Reading it made me notice my olfactory senses a lot more. I never noticed how many smells I ignore on a daily basis until I read it. I bet it will be the same for you when you read it! Perfume is creepy and Suskind’s writing is beautiful. What more could you want in a book? Have...
