September 2011


Angela Alsaleem resides in Gridley, California with her wonderful and super supportive husband, her beautiful daughter, and two happy dogs.

By day, she works as a Documents Administrator for a pension firm. By night, she writes dark speculative fiction.

Angela Alsaleem is the author of Sanitarium, released in March, 2011. She’s had over 20 stories published in the last few years and looks forward to many more publications in the future.

Women Scorned is disturbing, gory and full of torture, murder, and mayhem. Perfect for Halloween, right? Message me between now and November 30th and I'd be happy to provide you with a free e-book of Women Scorned in exchange for an honest review.

Thanks,
Angela

The first two books...incredible. I've never anticipated the last installment of a series as much as I did this one. I also haven't been this disappointed in a long, long time. It was just okay. I didn't hate it, but I wouldn't recommend it and I wou ...more

Great story. I would give more reasons, but it would spoil the end. I love stories where things are not wrapped up in a neat package with a pretty bow. It's not a happy ending, which is perfect for this story.

I love the reinvented vampire. I'm so sick of vampire stories and movies right now. They are so overdone. Thanks for making it new, interesting and wonderful again. Fast-paced and fascinating.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Can't say enough good things about this book. I was blown away at how convincingly this author wrote the story from a child's perspective. If it hadn't been for someone else recommending it, I never would've read this ...more

Great story idea. Tight writing. I just didn't empathize enough with the main character. I really didn't care about her. I loved the story and read through it quickly, but it didn't compel me the way other stories have.

Great writing. Tightly written story. I love how it incorporated social media and cyber bullying throughout the text. I've always wanted to write a story that incorporated Facebook, texts and chat rooms. This book does it seamlessly. Great characters ...more

While I love this author's work and admire the creativity and idea for the plot, the story was just too weird. I loved the idea of a multimillionaire taking over the world via sex toys, but Baba Gray Beard and the sex training and the ultimate orgasm ...more

This is, by far, one of the best books I've ever read. It's one of the first books in which I have underlined and marked passages since college. The writing is beautiful and the story is enthralling. The ending, while a surprise, still allowed me to ...more
