  • Freewill on March 21, 2012

    Elyse Draper says that her New Adult* novel ‘Free Will’ is a paranormal romance. I’d like to say that it is a dark fantasy, but this fantasy has quite a balance of dark and light. ‘Free Will’ is the first part of a trilogy; it follows Ellie and Christopher, and their time-defying love story. Each is different from the crowds around them; Ellie because she can feel people’s emotions and influence them; Christopher because he can read people’s innermost secrets. James is the bad guy of the story; he can torture people with his mind. Lune is a dog, a husky to be precise, and Christopher’s best friend, and maybe more. There is also Ann, in Las Vegas, who has put her past behind her and started her life anew. Or tried to, but James can be a persistent being. There is more to the world that what can be seen with physical eyes, that what can be heard by physical ears. And secret organisations in the background, biding their time. This thoughtful, and almost philosophical, novel is written like a spell. Readers will be entranced by the Colorado scenery, the wanderings of the characters and their wonderings, the Faery-tale feel of this storytelling. *New Adult is an American genre between Young Adult and General Fiction.
  • A Walk In The Moonlight - True Tales of Hauntings and Strange Coincidences on March 25, 2012

    I enjoyed this walk in the moonlight with Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc. In fact, I now wish that I could go to Florida and visit with Andrea in cemeteries and other haunted places!
  • I am Morte on May 10, 2012

    ‘I Am Morte’ is the short story by Elyse Draper included in ‘Ladies of Horror 2009’ along with a biography giving an insight in her personality and her writing. This short story is about a little girl in a coma at the hospital. Death is sitting at her bedside, telling her stories of their previous encounters whenever each of her lives ended (on a battlefield, executed by Nazis, crushed by a truck, etc), description of deadly injuries included. I enjoyed reading this soberly elegant and almost lightly written short story. Elyse Draper uses words as precise as a scalpel, details almost clinical, and philosophical thinking to describe Death’s meticulous stalking of one specific light/soul. I felt that this almost graphic and almost humorous story was written with love. It made me wonder if the entity, Death, could feel love. It made me wonder about Death’s gender or gender neutrality. It made me wonder about life.
  • Consequences on June 08, 2012

    ‘Consequences’, a welcome sequel to ‘Freewill’, is the second spell in the New Adult* trilogy woven by the clever writer known as Elyse Draper. We catch up with Christopher in Montana, where he now lives off the grid, while Ellie is travelling the world in search of a mentor. Once again, the author balances dark and light, good and evil, like a wonderful and experienced circus juggler. Her style, while poetic, is like a card trick where your eyes try to follow the ace that her deft hands move constantly. You think you know where it is, but it is already over there. And she has given you all the signs to figure it out, but you were too spellbound to notice. In Montana, in a cabin lost among the trees, Michael the forest warden listens to his mysterious friend Christopher reveal his past and what happened in Vegas after the 24 hours where Ellie had become solid to be with him. Michael is only human, but his keen interest in Native American folklore is suddenly validated. In the meantime, Ursa the wolf, Lune’s mate (husky and Christopher’s best friend), gives birth to a very special offspring: Artemis the white wolf. In her travels, Ellie sees Japan and spends some time in Africa, before reaching Greece and meeting the legendary Cassandra. Ellie is learning to control her powers, she is learning that she is not just gentle and compassionate, but she is also a very powerful empath, one that some secret organisation in Europe could be wary of. Reading ‘Consequences’ is like catching up with old friends (alive and dead, death being relative), and meeting with new ones. ‘Consequences’ is a tale written with love. But remember: Elyse Draper is a twisted writer, who will leave you hanging to the cliff by your fingertips……. Again……. *New Adult is an American genre between Young Adult and General Fiction.
  • Vindication on Aug. 22, 2012

    ‘Vindication’, the third instalment in the Freewill trilogy is built like a ticking bomb. The explosion is an amazing showdown in the tunnels running under Paris, and its aftermath will bring tears, joy, pain and beauty. And when you think it is over, it isn’t over yet. ‘vindication’ starts with a series of murders in the Montana small town nearby Christopher’s cabin. His friend Michael suspects the killer is not human, suspects the killer could be in their midst……. Can the local coroner believe in the existence of powerful, ethereal beings like Ellie, beings neither dead nor alive……. Betrayed, Ellie travels to Africa, to spend time with her friend Zuvan, and learns to use her empathic power as a weapon. Together, they travel to Paris, and so do Christopher and Michael. Each after their own demon. Can Ellie and Christopher’s time-and-space-defying love story defy death itself, despite the cruelty of the world? As Ellie’s grandmother says, “The mist has no concept of time.” The trilogy, while being a paranormal romance for young adults, is also a life-changing adventure for everyone. Elyse Draper is a clever and twisted writer. After two remarkable cliffhangers, she ends her trilogy with two amazing fireworks, while still keeping the readers guessing. Suspense has become her middle name.
  • Bone Dressing on Sep. 07, 2012

    It is the story of an almost-18-year-old teenager named Syd. Syd is strong-willed, stubborn, and fiercely loyal to her best friend. Adopted as a child, she likes to frequently visit her dead parents in the local cemetery, preferably in the middle of the night. On one of her visits, after another troublesome day at school, she meets the mysterious Beau, his little sister Sarah, and their pet TJ (a black panther). They’re here to help her find clues and solve a karmic problem she’s been carrying through lives and time. Narrated by Syd herself, ‘Bone Dressing’ is written with passion and reads with the familiarity of your own diary……. When you were a teenager. I think I’ll have to read the next instalment of a young adult paranormal series. I really would like to know WHAT Syd is…….
  • Awaiting Fullness: A Collection of Horror Poetry on Jan. 27, 2013

    As it says, it is a collection of horror poetry, and it is captivating. It takes the reader into other worlds, worlds where you do not want to linger for too long. It is dark and gothic.
  • In Your Words on May 24, 2013

    An easy-reading short story to forget about daily life. Sweet style.
  • Night Garden on Oct. 15, 2013

    A serial killer has been striking in West Hawthorne for a year. Along comes a copycat. Meanwhile Karen Krane's fiancé commits suicide in East Hawthorne. Grieving, in the company of her ever-supportive best friend Andrea, Karen starts receiving anonymous letters from a secret admirer going by the initials of NG. NG seems to know every move Karen makes and speculations over his identity are rife. Could the initials stand for the Night Garden? The place Karen created on her house roof to enjoy peace and solitude. Jane Timm Baxter created a suspenseful and tense mystery where everyone Karen knows and meets is a suspect. The colourful support cast includes the Cirkus Freakatorium where Karen does body hook suspension and where someone pretends to be a vampire. Her best friend Andrea has contacts in the witchcraft community to scrounge protective spells. While Karen's stalker plagues her with more letters, gifts and the occasional threat, increasing his creepy factor, the serial killer, or the copycat, kills closer and closer to Karen's life, and Karen's paranoia reaches new heights. 'Night Garden' is an intense read with a stunning ending that will echo in the readers' minds like ripples on a great lake. Jane Timm Baxter is an original talent to watch out for.
  • Ladies and Gentlemen of Horror 2013 on Nov. 25, 2013

    Multitasking Jennifer L. Miller is back with an anthology (similar in form to what appeared previously in 2008 and 2009) featuring unknown and talented writers, whose styles will surprise you, captivate you, bind you with a spell, and make you shiver. But what is Horror? Jennifer L. Miller attempts to define this genre in the foreword, but as she says herself, "One person's clown is my spider." So, what is Horror? Is it a ghost? A werewolf? A giant insect? A zombie? A vampire? Maybe it is just an icy feeling insinuating around your heart, and the monster inspiring it is simply human. Maybe it is the shrill sound of your alarm clock at 7 am, because you haven't slept enough. Maybe it is under your bed, or watching you from the shadows, biding its time. Maybe it is lurking at the back of your mind, haunting you day and night. Whatever Horror is, these fourteen writers are sharing with you figments of their imagination, and a glimpse of their lives, within the pages of this remarkable anthology, in the shapes of short stories, poems, novel extracts, flash fiction. Will you get lost in the insane lands of their minds? Will you come back to your reality? Or will you gasp for breath, breaking the watery surface of your consciousness, asking incongruously, "Did I save her? Did I save Alice?"

  • Surviving My Friends: The Kelly Johnson Story on Dec. 04, 2013

    SURVIVING MY FRIENDS: THE KELLY JOHNSON STORY By Dee Clark An authorised memoir started by Kelly Johnson - original lead guitarist of Heavy Rock girl band Girlschool - and completed by her friends and family. "I wasn't a vegetarian yet -- I was young and my conscience still under construction." Kelly Johnson This is not a work of literature; it is not meant to be such. It is a memoir. It is a tribute to a guitar hero, a human being. Her name was Kelly Johnson, and in her own way, she was extraordinary. This book was mostly written by Kelly Johnson – and she had a way with words – before her death in July 2007, and also integrates some of her friends' memories, including Denise Dufort, Cris Bonacci, and Jackie Chambers. Kelly Johnson was the original lead guitar of the band Girlschool. From 1978 until her departure to Los Angeles in 1984, where she tried to start a new career by herself and playing in a new band with Kathy Valentine (from the GoGo's). However, while she enjoyed her life and the company of her friends, she gained no recording contract. In 1993 she returned to the UK and resumed playing lead guitar with Girlschool. Their connection had the strength of a lifetime. She left Girlschool again after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and taught all the leads to her successor Jackie Chambers. When I read 'Surviving My Friends', I was struck by some of Kelly's wonderful qualities, besides her love of life and her intelligence: she was an environmentalist, an activist for animal rights and a vegetarian. I was struck by the great quality of the many friendships she cultivated throughout her life. I thought she was lucky to have so many wonderful friends, and I thought her friends were very lucky to have known her. The last line Kelly wrote for her memoir only expresses part of it: "I can't believe I got away with it all – and right now I feel as lucky as a lottery winner." R.I.P. Kelly Johnson (20/06/1958 – 15/07/2007). You will always be remembered.
  • Shadows of Dawn on Feb. 02, 2014

    A new voice has risen from the vampiric realm. Her maker has no idea of her great power. Lila Bishop herself has no idea about her true origins yet, but her writer –Jane Timm Baxter- starts her story with an important fact: pissing off Lila Bishop is tantamount to a death wish, and Max, Ebonadrakry or not, will pay the price. Lila’s maker, Victor, was beheaded by vampire hunters during World War II on the eve of their wedding. Lila hasn’t been really involved with anyone since his death until meeting Max. Unfortunately Max, or whatever his name is, has other plans, or more exactly no plans at all. He is an Ebonadrakry who doesn’t follow any rules, an experiment about to infuriate his maker. You could say that the Ebonadrakry are the gentry, the queens and kings of the vampires. Lila Bishop will meet some of them before the end of her road trip, the road trip she started when she found out that Max had faked his death and swapped bodies to opt out of their relationship. Jane Timm Baxter had me hooked on Lila Bishop and Whispers the mysterious hummingbird (reality or delusion?) flying about the vampire’s hair. ‘Shadows of Dawn’ is an intelligent novel that sucks you in with attaching characters, characters you want to be friends with, characters you wish to see again. It is the first installment of a vampiric trilogy, released recently and currently available as an e-novel on the Smashwords website. It is more than about time than Jane Timm Baxter releases this novel, after showcasing her talent in various anthologies, and spreads her wings beyond the limitations of short stories and flashes. Personally I can’t wait to read more of her addictive writings. ‘Shadows of Dawn’ is a captivating novel written with dark humour and sensitivity by a writer wealthy with imagination.
  • Flashes Revisited on March 02, 2014

    Published online for the third time, this collection of short works by dark novelist Jane Timm Baxter is a demonstration of the author’s twisted sense of humour and original talent. Be prepared to be scared, be prepared to be highjacked, be prepared to be seduced, be prepared to be amazed by these, sometimes raw, always intelligent works. You’ll start with flash fictions delving in fantasy as much as in science fiction. You’ll be taken away with six short stories that will leave you reeling. Finally you’ll be taken over by an entrancing epic pagan poem. Hold your breath, while Jane Timm Baxter doesn’t withhold her punches. I was once again hit by “Hospital” and “Reflections”, and forever spellbound with “Pathways”.
