Blood Talk: Creating New Worlds

We needn't paint obtuse colors of expression on our character's faces all the time (I was a fan of this when I first started writing), their dialogue and small mannerisms can help paint a picture that can, with every little nuance, create a greater, more believable world.

The Dark World & Reviews

This is going to be kind of short as I'm in my library at school and want to get back to writing before I head to my next class (stay in school kids!), but I just wanted to share some reviews with you guys that I've received for THE DARK WORLD: BOOK 1 recently.

REVIEW: The Black Seas of Infinity by Dan Henk

Black Seas of Infinity

As usual, I'm posting my Goodreads review first:

The Black Seas of InfinityThe Black Seas of Infinity by Dan Henk
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very well-put together read. In hindsight, I feel like I watched an awesome, well thought-out movie. The pacing was excellent, the character was interesting, and you really feel drawn into his world.

The character's thoughts were realistic, and what I love about Henk's work is that while set in the real world, (relatively), there are hints of mysticism and downright out-thereness that just works.

It took me so long to read because I'm terrible with reading things lately, and busy, but it was not the fault of the book in any way, shape, or form.

This was a riveting, sci-fi jaunt, and it makes me want to upload my consciousness into an alien body suit if only to see what the fuck would happen. (And if it's anything like what happened, here, count me the fuck in.)

Review: Dead Spots by Rhiannon Frater

Review: Dead Spots by Rhiannon Frater

In the dead spots, dreams become reality, terror knows your name, and nightmares can kill you.

The stillbirth of Mackenzie's son destroyed her marriage. Grieving, Mac reluctantly heads for her childhood home to seek refuge with her mother, who constantly reminds her of life's dangers.

Driving across Texas, Mac swerves to avoid hitting a deer...and winds up in a dead spot, a frightening place that lies between the worlds of the living and the dead. If they can control their imaginations, people can literally bring their dreams to lifeā€”but most are besieged by fears and nightmares which pursue them relentlessly. 

Mackenzie's mother and husband haunt her, driving her to the brink of madness. Then she hears a child call for help and her maternal instincts kick into overdrive. Grant, Mac's ally in the dead spots, insists Johnny is a phantom, but the boy seems so real, so alive....

As the true horrors of the dead spots are slowly revealed, Mackenzie realizes that time is running out. But exits from the dead spots are nearly impossible to find, and defended by things almost beyond imagination.
