- Don't Get Mad…Get Even
on Sep. 20, 2011
Rich with darkly satisfying twists and filled with the perfect amount of Jamaican slang and patios, Don't Get Mad ... Get Even is a collection of five highly memorable short stories.
The eBook opens with intensity as a woman, who is seven months pregnant, and her three young children must barricade themselves inside their home for the duration of a hurricane. With them is the woman's abusive husband, and Rita has suddenly had enough. Will one of them go too far tonight? The second story also features a surprising twist to an abusive marriage.
In the third story, a young couple uses the secrets of obeah to control one another and their relationship. Some of J.L. Campbell's best writing ever is in this narrative, and the other two stories are equally compelling. This is not a read you'll want to miss.
An added bonus for me was the incredible cover designed by Tirzah L. Goodwin.
- Monsters You Know
on Jan. 21, 2012
Intense reads with themes ranging from the dark emotions within us to the supernatural, these short stories won’t disappoint—unless you count that they’ll leave you wanting another four. With her trademark blend of tight writing, highly memorable characters and settings, and wickedly dark humor, Tirzah Goodwin has another winner with MONSTERS.
