True Fodder by S.L. Dearing – Cover Reveal


True Fodder
A Horror Short Story
by
S.L. Dearing

My latest tiny tale is that of terror, ladies and gentlemen.
It will be available to the masses on October 21, 2014.

When Jackson Montgomery and Miranda Stuart are partnered up during the company Team Building weekend, neither of them could be less thrilled. Out in the middle of a forest, paint-ball guns in hand, the duo set off to “take down” their peers. Yet in the process, they wander off course, and when they set off to find their way back, they run across a fairy ring, and temptation.

Things aren’t always what they appear and when these “frenemies” are pulled into a nightmare, can they put aside their differences and escape?

True Fodder is a Paranormal Horror Short Story.

TWIST Reviews – One Story at a Time – Metronome by Eaton Thomas Palmer


Disclaimer: These reviews pertain to stories in the anthology – Paranormal Anthology with a TWIST.  I have a story in this book (Bloodlines – I won’t be reviewing my story ;), so many feel that I cannot objectively review other stories in the same book I am also featured in… that being said, to each their own, I know my own level of integrity.  Thus, people can choose to believe me or not.  I want to review them and give my opinion… so I am.

Paranormal Anthology with a TWIST

Synopsis: Dr. Edgar Collins has his hands full with attempting to rehabilitate Matthew, and it’s no wonder with IT interfering.

Review: I was so impressed with this story.  I did not see the end coming and was pleasantly surprised.  Eaton Thomas Palmer writes with true grit and grime.  I could see the walls of the facility, the doctors and rooms.  All of his characters were fully developed and the TWIST was totally fulfilling.  All in all, a great anchor story!  I look forward to seeing what else, Mr. Palmer delivers us in the future.

5 pink stars

Synopsis: What is a vampire to do when he has to feed?  He hunts, but the game of cat and mouse this vampire plays may be his undoing.

Review: This story was GREAT!!  Talk about a beautifully written exercise in terror.  Nicki Scalise has written a fantastic tale.  I can’t give anything away, but this was wonderful!  Seriously, well written, well thought out and what a TWIST!!  Definitely a 5 star read!!

Paranormal Anthology with a TWIST

Synopsis: Whenever Dom thinks about Rose’s hazel eyes, he knows that she’s the one… the one to make his life complete.  But Rose isn’t the girl that Dom thinks she is.  Love is a tricky thing and its all in The Eyes of the Beholder.

Review: This was a great story that seemed to have a little bit of everything.  It kept me guessing and I didn’t see the end coming at all.  There are lots of TWISTs and turns and I found myself truly engaged in the characters.  Again, I didn’t see this TWIST coming and was pleasantly surprised when it did come.  I thought it was well written and full of imagination.

Synopsis:  A glimpse into the diary of a 13 year old girl.  The drama, the anguish and the joy… as we see exactly what she wants for Christmas.

Review: Jason Brant expertly takes us into the world of a teenage girl.  I felt as if this could be any thirteen-year-old’s diary.  All of the angst and drama, as well as the humor.  I was surprised by the TWIST in this story, which is great! After all, I am the TWIST detective.  It’s an easy read and extremely enjoyable.  Well done, Mr. Brant!!

TWIST Reviews – One Story at a Time – Sweet Lenora by Bart Hopkins


Disclaimer: These reviews pertain to stories in the anthology – Paranormal Anthology with a TWIST.  I have a story in this book (Bloodlines – I won’t be reviewing my story ;), so many feel that I cannot objectively review other stories in the same book I am also featured in… that being said, to each their own, I know my own level of integrity.  Thus, people can choose to believe me or not.  I want to review them and give my opinion… so I am.

Paranormal Anthology with a TWIST

Synopsis: Young Lenora is a dutiful daughter who abides by her mother’s wishes, despite the fact that she is becoming a woman and struggles to fly free in a position obsessed 1930s town.  But Sweet, Sweet Lenora is about to learn that freedom has it’s dangers.

Review:  I was thoroughly impressed with Bart Hopkins grasp of protocol and position in this story.  Although, I felt that this was taking place a few years earlier (turn of the century) as opposed to the 1930s.  However, this did not take away from the story.  Once again, the author’s style has an easily readable flow and his description is felt.  When Lenora is excited, I felt it, when she is disappointed, I felt it.  I thought the TWIST was going one way, then it took a turn.  Ultimately, I did have an idea where it was going, but that’s me and I’m a little bit of a TWIST detective.  I very much enjoyed this story and it was beautifully executed.
