Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m in a Facebook horror group and there are many indie and self published authors in it, that is where I was introduced to this book. At first I wasn’t sure about it, I mean how good can a story be if it’s only 100 words long? I was surprised to find these were good stories.
These stories are like tiny glimpses into people’s lives. Short but to the point. There are many that would make great longer stories, some that I would really like to be longer stories. Here is a short list of some of my favorites:
Hide and Seek by Matthew Brockmeyer
Lunchtime by Andrew Lennon
Baby Steps by Michael A. Arnzen
Cold Toes by Georgia Lennon
No More b Mike Duke
Meal for One by Howard Carlyle
Another Tonight? by William F. Nolan

Review: Florida Man by Mike Baron

Gary Duba’s having a bad day. There’s a snake in his toilet, a rabid raccoon in the yard, and his girl Krystal’s in jail for getting naked at a Waffle House and licking the manager.

Gary’s a redneck living in a trailer by the swamp. But he’s got dreams, big dreams. Every time he tries to get ahead, fate deals him a low blow. But then he gets lucky…

With his best friend, Floyd, Gary sets out to sell his prized Barry Bonds rookie card to raise the five hundred needed for bail. But things always find a way of getting out of hand.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book made me laugh so much that my sides hurt!

Florida Man has a very solid storyline and great character development. I was unsure about reading it at first because it’s not something I would normally read, but I’m glad I read it.

Definitely keeping an eye on this author!

Dick that is in equal measures suspenseful, gripping, darkly funny and philosophically challenging.” (starred review and named a Top Indie Book of the Year) – Kirkus Reviews “There simply aren’t enough stars to communicate the impressiveness of O’Donnell’s work here. He has taken religion, science, politics, theory and philosophy and blended them all together to create what is easily one of the most important books to come out this year.” – Pavarti K.

Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a very unique read, I really liked the darker dystopian aspects the author used.

The world building and descriptions were incredible, it was a real world that could unfortunately come true. I will say I didn’t really feel anything about the characters.

Overall this is a good book but it seemed rushed.

Review: All The Kings Traitors

Over a thousand years have passed since the first Godstones ripped through the skies and mangled the earth. With their fall came centuries of chaos and destruction, but also immense power.

Power that separates humans from Gods.

Now, in the Kingdom of Azanthea, two adoptive brothers flee from unjust conscription.

A fugitive struggles to truly be free.

A double-crossing warrior must choose where his allegiances lie: with his wife or with his daughter.

A traitorous heir to the Kingdom’s throne roams the lands in search of an army to call his own.

A prodigy in the House of Historian competes in a grueling trial to prove her loyalty.

And one God-King rules over them all.

Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really liked how the author worked the story about Krampus into this story and kept true to the legends. The pacing was a tad slow at the beginning but picked up. This is a dark story and I think it would be okay for the older middle grade but might be too much for younger middle grade readers.

Overall it was a good read and will definitely get kids into reading horror.

Review: The Cannibals of Candyland

There exists a race of cannibals who are made out of candy. They live in an underground world filled with lollipop forests and gumdrop goblins. During the day, while you are away at work, they come above ground and prowl our streets for food. Their prey: your children. They lure young boys and girls to them with their sweet scent and bright colorful candy coating, then rip them apart with razor sharp teeth and claws.

When he was a child, Franklin Pierce witnessed the death of his siblings at the hands of a candy woman with pink cotton candy hair. Since that day, the candy people have become his obsession. He has spent his entire life trying to prove that they exist. And after discovering the entrance to the underground world of the candy people, Franklin finds himself venturing into their sugary domain. His mission: capture one of them and bring it back, dead or alive.

Cannibals of Candyland is an erotic horror story for the bizarro reader. Dark, disturbing, and absurd; this isn’t the board game version of candy land you used to play as a kid.

Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a very different and interesting read. This is my first dip into Bizarro fiction and it definitely won’t be my last.

This book gives a very disturbing twist to Candyland!

This book definitely isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for something completely different you should check out this book.

Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a great start to a series! I couldn’t put this book down and can’t wait to find out what happens next!This novella had a lot of action in it that kept me turning the pages. The characters and setting pull you right in. I do like how the author made it so the rich people get what they want no matter what the cost is, which unfortunately seems to be a reality in our world.

Review: The Year of The Knife


Agent -Sully- Sullivan is one of the top cops in the Imperial Bureau of Investigation. A veteran witch of the British Empire who isn’t afraid to use her magical skills to crack a case. But Sully might need more than a good education and raw power to stop the string of grisly murders that have been springing up across the American Colonies. Every one of them marked by the same chilling calling card, a warning in the form of a legion of voices screaming out through the killers’ mouths: -It IS tHe YEAr oF the KNife.-

Sully’s investigation will drag her away from the comforts of home in New Amsterdam, the beautiful but useless hyacinth macaw that used to be her boss, and the loving arms of her undead girlfriend, in a thrilling race against time, demonic forces and a shadowy conspiracy that will do anything to keep its hold on power and ensure that Sully takes their secrets to her grave, as soon as possible.

Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed this book, it’s different than anything I’ve read before. It takes place in an alternative USA where the British still have control. There are tons of paranormal elements that I really liked.

The mystery of who the killer was kept me reading, I had to find out who it was. The twists and turns kept me on my toes and trying to guess what happened next.

Review: Human Flesh

They never caught it

During the winter of 2017, a series of strange occurrences took place in a small town of northern Maine. A rational explanation for what happened has still not been presented. Now, for the first time, all the available written evidence is being released to the public from what is commonly know as the Freyston case.

Human Flesh was originally published in Danish to great reviews, and is now available in English. This dark winter horror story will also satisfy crime lovers, as the plot is told through written evidence in a fictitious murder case. For fans of Hannibal Lecter and Pet Sematary.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow!! This book grabbed me from the beginning and refused to let go. I love how it’s told through texts, emails, phone calls, ect… I think having it told that way gives it a more real and creepy feeling to the storyline. I love the backstory of the Wendigo, I don’t recall ever hearing it so it was a great element in the story. This is definitely an author you should check out if you’re a horror lover. Can’t wait to dive into more from Nick Clausen!
