Let me start by saying: I read this in the dark, along with one light on and in a big house. Wait, did I mention I was alone? I might suggest that , you might not want to do that. I’m just sayin…
Just let me be frank with you here. Okay, wait. I still want to be me. Here goes. I honestly love watching TV, and I know what would make for a good show, or movie. And as I was reading this, I was just so totally freaking out all through it, I could totally visualize everything. I know this book would be amazing as a Movie, you seriously need to read it, because you know it goes. When they turn books into Movies, they ruin them. And if the words are this good, you need to read them now!
Another thing that I loved about this book, was the fact that it is portrayed in Oasis, Florida. As most of you know, I am I currently live in Florida. So I love it when books put Florida, or Ohio on the map, I’m in.
This book, “The Dead Game” has Vampires, Beachfront property, a scary haunted mansion, dead bodies, romance and of course people. What a unique kind of mix.
But let me tell you, never ever go to a place called: “End house” and never attend a party on a Friday night where the invitation envelopes are black. I mean if that doesn’t just say: “It’s going to get weird.” As a warning, then nothing will.
I was so impressed, with “The Dead Game”, I couldn’t put it down. I give it five stars, it was just that exciting. If you’re anything like me, and enjoy horror, with a kick, then you need to read this. And you better be ready to get comfortable, because you’re not going to want to put this book down! It’s just that enjoyable.
TO BE OR NOT TO BE
To be or not to be a writer.
This has been the hardest question for me.
Should I continue with my pursuit?
Or step away and claim defeat?
One book written.
One book sold.
It dances around on Amazon and Nook.
It reaches new heights in its niche
And then it slowly bows its head in silence.
The highs feel good and lofty,
While the lows feel depressing and sad.
Is it worth it?
Is it worth the aggravation?
I am told that a writer must keep writing.
More books to dance around.
More highs and lows.
Should I keep doing this?
Will I keep doing this?
Yes, for now
As I wait for the next high.
A book will have blank pages
unless you write in it.
It needs to hear you inner
thoughts and desires.
It needs to follow a story,
a path to an ending.
Characters to fill the pages.
Words to brighten the pages
from black to white.
Words that can be shared by all.
THE SUN SETS.
THE MOON RISES.
WHAT WAS BRIGHT AND COLORFUL
DURING THE DAY IS NOW DARK AND GLOOMY.
THE STAGE IS SET.
THE SCENERY IS IN PLACE.
WE ARE READY FOR ANYTHING TO HAPPEN.
THE CURTAIN RISES.
ARE WE PREPARED?
WHAT WILL LIFE BRING TO US?
LET’S WAIT AND SEE.
LIFE IS A SET STAGE
READY FOR ITS FIRST ACT.
