A painfully sweet, short story. It is a sweet little ghost story with the potential to be much more. I think it could be a truly excellent piece with a little more emotive description and a polish (mostly for some slight grammatical errors) by an editor.
Sonoran Dreams: Three short stories from exile
on April 02, 2013
A short collection of haunting tales a little different from the rest of the pack, with just enough horror to satisfy. This was a perfect lunchtime read - a "real" horror collection, in that the characters who so unfortunately starred in each piece, were as different and engrossing a set of personalities as a reader could ever want. Two thumbs up to Rob Grindstaff - I'll be back for more.
That Morning After from the Phoenix Series
on May 19, 2013
A wonderful glimpse into a modern take on vampires with racy, laugh-out-loud dialogue and memorable characters. I could not put this book down, and gulped it up from start to finish! There MUST be more in store for the sassy heroine - and if there is, I can't WAIT to read it!

I really, really wanted to give this book more stars. But it's DESPERATELY in need of an editing job. The twist at the end of the story was good (I'm a horror buff, so I love the ending shivers), and the descriptions of Paulie in the bit at the end were quite creepy. But there were SO MANY grammatical errors that it just drew away from my enjoyment of the book. It would be an excellent movie script, as it's written in the same sort of sparse style most used in such endevours, and it is fast-paced, unlike a lot of other thrillers I've read, where they take FOREVER to get to the fun part. But I just couldn't find enjoyment in the story as it was, because of the terrible editing job. A round of excellent editing, and this short - and its longer counterpart - would have WONDERFUL potential as a horror novel, but it really, truly, honestly needs some time with an editor or two, first. Thank you SO MUCH for the opportunity to read your story.

This was lovely - delicious - beautifully written, exquisitely described, and VERY sexy. Would love to see more from these two. I'm definitely interested in the author's other works. Brava.
