Chris (mbsnowman) Hey everyone - I've recently started a new book review blog - "Reviews of Scary Books". It's dedicated to horror, and my search to find books that have the capacity to get inside ones head and truly give a scare. If you've got a book that fits the bill to recommend, I'll be building a "to read" list soon!

Michael Quarles | 3 comments The Dead and the Lost by Michael F. Quarles
If The Dead Return, Will They Come For You?
Tormented by grief, Tamara Bennett believes her husband has returned from the dead. Her fears are confirmed by a nightmarish discovery. Sam Bennett’s death covers a secret, a secret that has unleashed a demonic force that could destroy both her life, and the lives of her children.
Coming to her aid is Carrie, a mountain woman with strange powers, who knows the only way such evil can be vanquished. She is not a witch, nor a priestess, but in her hands are the keys to Life, Death, and the Lost Dead.
I hope you will consider my novel, The Dead and the Lost.

Chris (mbsnowman) I'm really trying to differentiate on this blog by focussing on books where the 'scary' is the point. So Michael's book sounds like it's in range. If you think your book has some legitimate scares in it, Amanda, I'll take a look, otherwise, this might not be the right venue. Note: I'm only taking on 5 books at a time.

Amanda Lyons (amandamlyons) yes it does for example:

The top quote and the longer one are the examples I'm meaning. Let me know what you think. It's fine if you don't think it suits.

Chris (mbsnowman) The bathroom scene intrigues me enough to want to read more. Thanks!

message 7: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Lyons (amandamlyons) No problem. The book opens soft but it has quite a few scenes like that.

message 8: by Chris (new)

Chris (mbsnowman) Okay. Send me a dm with details.

Jacob Rayne | 14 comments Hi, Chris. My name's Jacob. Would you consider an anthology featuring one of my horror stories?

message 10: by Harvey (new)

Harvey Click | 82 comments I have two for you, Chris:

THE BAD BOX is quietly scary, and THE HOUSE OF WORMS is loudly scary! :)

I'd be very pleased if you read either or both.

message 11: by Harvey (new)

Harvey Click | 82 comments BTW, Chris, send me a PM if you want a free mobi of either book.

Jacob Rayne | 14 comments Hi, Chris, I've got a horror novella that might get in your head. It's given one reader nightmares and kept another awake with the story playing in her mind.
This is it here: Sunshine by Jacob Rayne

Chris (mbsnowman) Hi Tony,

Sure - I'll give it a read. However - I've got about a month backlog right now - so the review would take awhile. Absolutely correct that epub is my brand. PM me for an email address to send to.

Matt | 1 comments Hello,

I wanted to reach out and see if you might be interested in reviewing my brand new release (It's a brief read at roughly 50 digital pages), Say No to Drugs (I'd be more than happy to email you a pdf/mobi/epub etc.).

I own and operate and I've spent so much time focusing on other authors' work that it's been a great experience to break away and work on some more of my own fiction.

I'll spare you a big rant and give you an idea of what Say No to Drugs is all about.



A double feature told in the tradition of vintage drive-in tales, Say No to Drugs serves as a reminder that some clichés are worth paying heed. In The Pot, the first of two tales, terror turns green, while Blue – the double feature’s second tale – should encourage hard drug users to think twice before mixing fatal cocktails.

The Pot

Ray Waltz just wanted to get high as he ushered dreaded high school years into a deep crevice designed to bury life’s strangest of moments; never to be revisited again. But Jimmy Hanniger, local weed-man with the strongest herb in town held different designs for Ray and his future.

If only Ray had just said no.


In Blue a confused young man must decipher the visual riddles surrounding him. Why are the walls a sudden and mesmerizing blue? Why is there a body sprawled across the floor. And just what is that forcing its way through an ocean of turmoil, bound for dry land; bound for murderous actions?

Find out in longtime entertainment journalist, Matt Molgaard’s debut double feature, crafted with the intent of pleasing those who favor the whacky, absurd grindhouse style of yesteryear.

I appreciate your consideration - and I hope you're interested in covering this!
