It also takes a lot of kindness and time from others. So to try and celebrate both camps, I’ll be promoting the bloggers whoContinue reading “7 Days of Reviews. Day 1: NIGHTFALL UP NORTH”

Bad Quotes

I’ll confess – it’s a misleading title. Below you’ll find a collection of select quotes from recent reviews for Bad People. I can’t thank enough those that have read the book and offered their words.

WiHM – Shirley Jackson

Jackson’s worlds are small. They inhabit a very tiny space and involve people, mostly female protagonists, who live in small towns and go grocery shopping, a lot.

In Darkness

Horror has been with me from a very early age. I found several copies of The House of Hammer comics in my parent’s bedroom when I was around seven years old. I would sit in the bathroom reading titles such as Shandor: Demon Stalker and Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, their paper scented with cigarette smokeContinue reading “In Darkness”
