Becky Wright is a fab author; let me say that first. This is my second read and she keeps me filled with the urger to turn a page, instead of setting the read aside. The exact effect happened while reading The Manningtree Account.
The haunting tale is filled with historical facts on witch trials and the sinister General Matthew Hopkins. Set in various times, the heart of the story roots from 1646's English Civil War, and a woman accused. The child, the story's lifeline, makes the book deep and brings the reader to.current day events. Heather and her Paranormal Investigations team step into danger, without any clue of the rage and power awaiting. But what takes place is only a doorway into a gripping tale of loss of faith and determination. What could be worse?
I found appreciation in Wright's chronicled research. The Manningtree Account felt realistic and very haunting, because it was real and spectral. I am a huge fan of paranormal television shows, so when I can read about a case, and it carry a deeper, realistic feel that the tv shows- I'm ecstatic! It's a fast read and one that I'd press on any ghost lover!
The ebook is a little under one hundred pages, but it's full of supernatural thrills and will make any horror/paranormal reader happy. Check it out, as I move on to the next read!

The WanderLynn Experience- LovErotic series: The Layover, Island Adventures & Destination Home by L. Loren
So this seems to be my year in romance extreme. This one was different though. It still held a unbelievably rich guy and an admirable, confident woman, but what made it stand out was that it was about an interracial relationship. WOW- I could actually relate to it! Had my husband been secretly a millionaire, and pursued me, I'd have missed out! I'd continually rebuffed his approaches, with my broke self! Ha... Anyway, this story was adventurous and truly an experience. A WanderLynn Experience...
When you find a movie that shows a ton of creativity, you go with it. I found such creativity in Bloodrunners, by Dan Lantz. The movie takes place during the days of Prohibition, where the booze don't shine ‘less it travels beneath the line. The cool part is, sometimes, what’s tucked away and shared, for a particular fee, isn't what you think it should be...
My beautiful friend, Terry McCally is an author of faith. I've known her for at least seven or eight years and what she writes is from the heart and with purpose. Here an opportunity for you to get to know her and what she's about. I guarantee- if you're looking for a reason to write, listen to her story; you may feel the same way!
I was referred to this novel, The Call, by an IG friend; she did not steer me wrong. I wish I could remember who it was, to thank her. Anyway, the book is incredible! Ireland is in danger, the entire nation, from the continuous threat of the Sidhe (pronounced She-thē). Children, between the ages of five, through teenaged years are called. This "calling" is marked by the remains of someone's clothing, their body missing for a count of three minutes, four seconds...
Siblings, Sarah and Tom are surviving in an alien-invaded world on their family farm, but they’re not alone for long. A stranger soon invades their home, seeking shelter. It’s what follows him that brings the trouble.
I don't know why I thought I'd love this book. Was it bad- no, but after I read the Clockwork series, I was ruined for the rest of the books. When I read The Mortal Instruments, I was already suffering death by Shadow Hunters. I even tried to watch the tv series- crashed and burned there too! So what made me pick up Lady Midnight, book one in the Dark Artifices series? The fact that I'd already purchased both the book and audiobook. Now, on to what I read...
I have to admit, this story has a unique beginning. It's rare in its horror and tells of a man who saw things differently. So much that he put himself through some serious rationalization!= but he made it fun read and kept me on my toes!
Stage 3, by Ken Stark is about poor, but very quick on his feet, Mason Tenby. Or should I say, Hank Mason? Ha-Ha! In the beginning, that's a joke even he makes. Anyway, the world's gone to pot. Forty thousand feet in the air is where the story starts off. Mason had been on a return trip from what should have been the happiest day of his life, but something occurred, leaving him alone and depressed. While asleep, in a drunken stupor, something happens and the other passengers end up in a bad way. He doesn't let this affect him though, even sleeping off the remainder of his vacation while overly intoxicated. With a need to escape the real world, he wakes on the verge of a dying one...
There are movies that grab you, and there are movies that snatch you up or poison you. Then there are the ones that wrap you inside a skin-tight water suit, then drop you beneath the waves, into an icy grave... That's what happens during the opening credits of The Dark Below, a Douglas Schulze film. I've never watched anything like this, and I found myself one hundred percent captivated.

This is the shortest short story (Tiny Story) I've ever reviewed, but it was so cute, I had to share. I subscribe to Jamie Brindle, a YA, scifi author who's coming out with a new novella (All Quiet in The Western Fold) very soon.
So this tiny story is about a worrisome planet, who's visiting her doctor. Yes, you read that correctly. Something's wrong and she can't figure out what it is. Turns out, she's infected- a nasty set of buggars too! But what exactly, is bugging the planet to the point of worry and excessive doctor visits? I'll never tell. Read it for yourself!
Visit Jamie Brindle's website by clicking here! You can't read his books and stories any other way. Also, he's got a book offer, FREE for those interested! I'm off to the next read.
So many fairy tales and childhood fantasies have been revamped these past years. Some have been tremendously successful in their retelling, leaving you in awe as the loose ends of short stories came to full fruition. As if filled with facts that made the fantasies true, they've been recreated with great skill. Others have come with pieces that assisted in the original story but fell through, cataclysmically through the interest floor, crashing and burning. Gretel, by Christopher Coleman didn't fall, but it didn't fill me with he excitement I'd expected. Let me show you why...
