Description For Sian B. Claven’s Story SHH…

What did you say?

The once silent world of Heather Lawrence is turned upside down when her husband, Andrew, admits her to a state-of-the-art facility for surgery that enables Heather to hear and speak, an ability she lost in her teens.

Strangeness abounds as she hears voices that aren’t there and speaks words that are not her own, and she tries to navigate through her noisy new life.

Desperate for answers, Andrew searches for the surgeon that gave Heather her new lease on life but turns up with more questions than when he started. He soon finds himself in need of a priest as All Hallows’ Eve approaches, and all traces of his wife disappear in front of his eyes.

Author of, A Raven’s Touch (2015) and A Raven’s Revenge (2019), Linda has self-published on Amazon and various retail platforms.

Author Spotlight: David Nora

Today we bring you an Author Spotlight for David Nora and his debut published novel Slasher Crasher. Kim will also be sharing her review. 

When David Nora isn’t writing silly horror stories about his high school friends, he’s trying to inspire future generations of children as a social studies teacher of the blind/visually impaired. He lives in New York City with his beloved stuffed polar bear, Po Po. He can be found on Twitter and Instagram at davidnorajr [all one word, lowercase]. Your support of indie authors is greatly appreciated.


Slasher Crasher

Published: August 22, 2019
348 Pages

It was the night HE tried to go home…but got caught in THEIR drama…

It’s Halloween. Nick Roesch, a towering figure of evil and stupidity, escapes from the upstate New York mental hospital he’s been committed to for the past five years. Planning to return to his childhood home, where he brutally murdered his babysitter’s boyfriend, his plans are halted when he crosses paths with an even more terrifying beast—two high school friends with some serious beef. Caught in a battle of loyalty that has been brewing for ten years of their friendship, the two girls, Kathleen Strife and Betsy Coleman, force the feud into a savage showdown, pitting the escaped monster against each other. Who will survive this epic death-match, and is it totally wrong to fall in love with the murderous lunatic who just tried to kill your ex-best friend with a machete?

Kim’s Review:

I found this book on Instagram and was drawn to the cover. Once I read the description, I knew I wanted to read it. This book is pretty entertaining! Obviously it needs to be taken for what it is, a classic 80s horror tale filled with extremes. Unfortunately, my one criticism is one of those extremes. I really hated Kathleen. No wonder no one liked her at school, she was disgusting! But everyone else was pretty in line with those cheesy 80s horror movies and it worked really well. The story was interesting (though slightly too long), the characters were engaging and believable, and the writing style was easy. There was only one point where I thought that the book was dragging on, but that passed quickly and I liked the story arc. There were some twists that were unexpected to me and I liked them! The ending was awesome! David was the best part of the book. He simultaneously added humor and a seriousness that made the story richer.

Overall, this was an engaging and entertaining read that I would recommend to anyone who loves campy horror. Not good for teens due to a lot of language and adult themes. I’m very glad I read it!
