Taken a Bite out of Shadows Over Somerset by @OccultDetective #horror

Posted by on Aug 25, 2014 in Books, Featured Posts, Horror, Kriss Morton, Reviews, Seventh Star Press | 2 comments

BobFreemanTourBadgeToday I am excited to have two great books to review. I normally would not have done this but I was so thrilled with both of the choices and the last week of reading has been joyful. Shadows Over Somerset is a contemporary Gothic horror published by Seventh Star Press. My next review today is for Hands of Chaos. Believe it or not, Shadows Over Somerset is also set in Indiana, I so do not need to go there, right?

Take the time to read “Dusk and Summer by @JosephAPinto

Posted by on Jul 3, 2014 in Books, Featured Posts, Giveaways & Contests, Kriss Morton, Reviews | 7 comments

I’m a lover of short stories and novellas, not because the are quicker to read but because it’s actually one of the hardest and most disciplined types of stories to write and really pull off well. For a reviewer, however, it can be very hard review to write, especially with one so deserving of my absolute very best. As the author states below, “A fantasy is born of equal parts magic and truth; a writer’s promise to his audience should be a seamless telling of the two“. He nailed it with this statement, especially relating to his own work. Joseph A. Pinto’s Dusk and Summer is one of those literary works which has left me teary eyed with the smell of salt hovering on my scent memory.
