    {Review} Cruelty (Episode One) by Edward Lorn

    I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.by Edward Lorn Genres: Horror Pages: 53 Format: eARC Buy on Amazon Goodreads I agree with another reviewer that the less we know about the “bad guys” the better. Especially in a situation where he/it is constantly terrorizing the “good guys/gals.” It may make some readers lose a certain amount of fear or suspense since they already know who’s coming. On the other hand, Edward writes his characters with such Edwardism (that’s realism E. Lorn style) that their emotions seem palpable. Edward excels…

    Milestone: The Collected Stories by Kealan Patrick Burke

    by Kealan Patrick Burke Published by Elderlemon Press on April 5th, 2014 Genres: Horror, Supernatural Pages: 183 Format: eBook Buy on Amazon Goodreads Somewhere out west there is a town called Milestone.

There are the stories of invisible barriers that open and close the borders on a whim, sometimes fatally, the whispers of a man in…

    {Guest Post} Writing to Music by Mark Matthews

The music is there as you read, and it is there while I write. For each book I have written, I have used a soundtrack to capture the tone of the novel. My novel STRAY was written to the Velvet Underground song Heroin, The Jade Rabbit to A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall, and On the Lips of Children was written…

    Summer of Zombie Guest – Jaime Johnesee

    Why Bob? Why Not? When I sat down to write Bob I was looking to expand on a character I had written into an earlier novel. He was the outline of a friend of mine named Nate and I fleshed him out by adding my own life experiences, and humor, to him. Bob is the sort of guy who will do anything he can to cheer up a sad friend. He’s the sort of fellow that stops to help people stranded on the side of the road and the sort of sap that winds up getting shot in the face because… Well, what would you do if a zombie showed…
