However, since I'm short on time just now, I'll give you my off-the-cuff version. I hope you like it!

After years of searching for the perfect shade of lipstick, Melissa found it at last when the strange old woman who brewed herbs and potions formulated it for her from all-natural ingredients, the same woman whose son had died all those years ago in a hit and run accident. As Melissa surveyed her gorgeous lips in the mirror, puffs of smoke arose, suffusing her face as corrosive acid ate away the flesh, exposing the pearl-white bone of her skull, making her wish she’d never drunk those last six beers before she got behind the wheel on that long-ago night.(less)

Michael Koryta's Those Who Wish Me Dead looks interesting. I've heard enough about The Girl With All The Gifts to arouse my curiosity, so that's a possibility. I'll take a look at Bellweather Rhapsody because I'm a musician and write thrillers with a musical touch myself. I'm sure I'll read many more books and stories as well. I've got a mystery-writing workshop to attend this Fall and there's a mighty reading list to prep for it.(less)

A glimpse into the wacky world of Robert Jeschonek

And Then There Were Nine is a real page-turnerFor years, I’d heard intriguing things about Bob Jeschonek and his amazing stories. For example, I heard my mentor, Dean Wesley Smith, rave about a riveting story he wasn’t able to tear himself away from. A recommendation in itself, but made all the more irresistible when I learned the theme and title of the book: Warning! Do Not Read This Story!


I read a Robert Jeschonek story about a sentient pai
