A dark vision of the end of the world
These two short stories will twist and torment your mind as you unravel the paradox within them. A desperate dash to save a life, realizing one’s own fate, and a man mentally snapping at life’s issues: these stories dive into the dark side and may keep you up at night.
Another great short from an author with a amazing ability to create characters you feel deeply about. The story deals with the torment a child goes through for not being one of the guys, and would rather be on his own.
You feel the pain he is put through and even worse is the pain he deals with by telling a lie.
Another great short story from Michael Crane, very well told short story. His characters never take you down the same worn out path you expect, his stories have a ring of good morels even if the outcome is not favorable.
Another great read from an amazing author. This heart warming fable takes place in a time when the world is covered in stones for the sky. It is a story of love, and taking a chance. As humans we are all afraid to take chances not knowing the outcome of things. Something bad might happen, or maybe it will enlighten our lives and the lives of others forever.
This book takes a look at things we take for granted and shows us what we are missing even if it is right in front of us. The book has beautiful photos that play in harmony with the poetic words that share the page. This is the reason to own a Kindle to find stories like this that will enrich our lives.
An amazing author this book is just as magic as his first book (The White Hairs)
What a WILD imagination, you never know where this writer is going to take you. Masterfully written putting you through the experience, This is listed under Erotica for a reason, it's a nice change and I like it.
Detective Taylor is back :) every book in the series leaves me wanting more and more. The characters are captured very well and the grim and dark subject matter is described to a T, I some times wonder how Bridget comes up with such dreadful situations, but then I remember others ask me the same questions about my work. Keep up the greatness you are building loyal fans.
An amazing collection of short stories of darkness, violence, fear, and sin crafted in a poetic visual delight. Bridget Squires has the goods with good marketing she could make an impact in the new world of e publishing.
Shutting off the outside world and entering a new realm.
Tom Raimbault is what owning a Kindle is all about, his novel The Tree Goddess from last year was my favorite read of the year. Introducing you too the town of Mapleview with a cast of characters with their twisted stories all wrapping and warping around each others. The book is a true thrill to read.
Now Tom returns with more from the town of Mapleview and a little town of Sillmac, this story taking place before The Tree Goddess. You don’t have to read either one of them first both are separate stories all within the same imagination of one another.
Tom this time takes us into the home and proud owner of Dickly’s Hardware. The family suffers some hard times with their daughters terrible accident that leaves her paralyzed, and then the mothers sickness that eventually leads to her death.
All this sorrow and heart break leads to Michael finding the charm and helpfulness of a beautiful young lady named Amber. What seems to be a dream come true both for Michael and Amber begins to build and morph into a nightmare of regret, obsession, and betrayal.
You become so involved in the characters in a book of Tom’s that the whole outside world just disappears, His writing style is captivating and at times he steps out from behind the curtain ands actually addresses the reader. So do yourself a favor get this book and all his other books. This guy should be populating the top sellers list.
Crawl up in a cozy blanket, open a bottle of fine wine and find yourself drifting off into the world created by Tom Raimbault, and then after your done wait for the next book to come out to take another vacation form reality.
Disturbing thrill ride of a read
A short story that gives you a lot for the price and size. Bad Billy is the product of inbreeding, and shoved into a basement. When he finally finds his way out into the world he has been shut off from years, his social skills are psychotic.
This book would make a amazing film I could picture Rob Zombie turning this into a cult classic. Mayhem, blood, gore, and many surprise twist makes this story a work of art of how to write a short story.
I will be waiting and instantly buying this authors new work as soon as it comes out.
