I'm a British author who lives in sunny Devon UK with my wife and our two son's and we are the owners of five cats.
My first book is Revenge a fast paced short in the thriller genre I am also working on fantasy novels.
on July 08, 2012 :
The theme of the short story is clearly 'Revenge' - pretty much given away with the title but it's not just x amount of pages of 'bloodthirsty' revenge as mentioned elsewhere. It's more than that. The characters have been well thought out and the story is a well-written piece which kept me turning the pages. Add to that the fact it's a short-story - my perfect little tale. After all, I have low attention span! I think the decision to make a short story was a good one - more pages would have diluted an already snappy, tense, well-thought out scenario.
One of the reviews - in the book - said it would make a 'delicious Twilight Zone' episode. Personally - I'd go with Tales of the Unexpected and Tales from the Crypt if you want comparisons. Nicely dark!
Thumbs up from me and a very strong case for 'not judging something by previous reviews'!
