Blog Tour and Review – Beneath Still Waters by Cynthia A. Graham

  Beneath Still Waters was a book where I felt immediately right at home–with the ease of the simpler times of small town life in the mid-twentieth century, with the sights and sounds of a suffocatingly hot summer. I went into this book expecting a historical novel steeped in mystery, and I definitely got that…but I […]

Review and Giveaway – Night Hawk by Lindsay McKenna

  Night Hawk is the tenth installment in the Jackson Hole, Wyoming series featuring former military members in a western setting. Although this is the first book that I’ve read in this series and by this author, I didn’t have a problem jumping right in since the books are written as stand alones–featuring a new […]

Review and Giveaway Blog Tour – Bleedovers by William Todd Rose

It was in this work that we first met Chuck, whose job it is to astral travel into the in-between areas called Crossfades and help stuck souls cross over into the light. […]

Review and Giveaway – Dark Screams Volume Four – Brian James Freeman (Editor) and Richard Chizmar (Editor)

The Dark Screams anthologies edited by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman have been pretty solid in terms of great short horror stories, but Dark Screams Volume Four is the first one where I enjoyed every single story in the volume. Horror heavy hitters such as Clive Barker and Heather Graham are featured and aren’t […]

Review and Giveaway – Andersonville by Edward M. Erdelac

  To continue my summer of horror reading schedule, the alternate historical fictional retelling of the Civil War prisoner camp Andersonville by Edward M. Erdelac was up next. The author’s extensive research into the conditions of this southern prisoner camp that held Northern soldiers in deplorable conditions would have made for an excellent non-fiction book, […]

Review and Giveaway Blog Tour – Killing Secrets by Dianne Emley

  Mysteries and thrillers are a favorite genre of mine, and Dianne Emley is an author that I’ve enjoyed before. I’ve reviewed her previous thriller with a paranormal slant, The Night Visitor, last year, and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone. I cracked open the protective cover for my Kindle pretty eagerly to start Killing […]
