Smashwords book reviews by Louise Ann Barton

  • Witch's Skin on Jan. 04, 2015

    Very interesting plot, but this story begged to be longer.
  • Shelter From the Storm - A Ghost Story for Christmas on Jan. 28, 2015

    Well written, a fresh take on a classic plot. Loved some of the descriptions, such as the two old women smelling like a funeral parlor. More attention should have been given to composing the ending as it just dropped off.
  • Shades Of Blood #3: The Werewolf Town on Feb. 08, 2015

    As a lifelong horror aficionado, the different slant the author uses is much appreciated and the tale is well written. But unless he begins writing longer versions of his stories, his plots are just being thrown away.
