My father used to tell me to take
a long walk on a short pier.
I thought he was trying to get rid of me.
I would walk away.
We weren’t close.
We never talked.
But maybe he was trying to share something with me.
His love of the sea.
He had been a Marine in World War II.
He could have been sharing with me in his awkward way.
His love of boats and the deep, blue sea.
Now when I look out at the ocean,
I think of him.
When I receive a 5 Star Review, I want to shout from the rooftops, “Hey! Someone enjoyed my book!”
That’s what I’m doing right now.
Thank you Astrid Grant for your kind words.
MY FIVE STAR REVIEW ON AMAZON:
5.0 out of 5 stars “The Big Bad Wolf is already waiting for us…”, June 25, 2014
This review is from: The Dead Game (Kindle Edition)
I cannot say how glad I am that I got the opportunity to read this book. This story puts me in mind of the horror classics – it has a little bit of everything: gore, eeriness, a nice array of shrinking violet heroines and a few tough broads, a bit of romance and plenty of twists (why, Natalia, why?)!
One of the things that I absolutely loved about this book was that it jumped into action right from the first page, and didn’t let up right until the end.
Another thing that I loved is this author’s style – the scenes were beautifully descriptive, stylish, and at times, quite gruesome (I’ll have nightmares about the fireplace for some time). They were also crafted in such a way that it was easy to envision every terror, almost as if it were a film.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to any fan of good, classic horror – whether you’re into vampires, demons, or just like some gruesome nighttime reading.
