Okay so before thinking about the fall book bingo, I never thought about checking out books by their covers, well the creepy covers I mean. I wanted to find something to read that is read to children about Halloween time and figured that this short book falls under the creepy cover category.

Life lesson for kids from this creepy book: “Respect the dead and don’t play in the cemeteries.”

Book Review: Whiskey, Vamps, and Thieves (Southern Vampire Detective Book 1)

Book Title: Whiskey, Vamps, and Thieves (Southern Vampire Detective Book 1) vamp

Book Author: Selena Charles

Rating: 3 Dragon Paws paw

This is a novel about a young vampire who is not a vampire, who is a free being and is allowed to live on the shifter’s territory.

I would recommend this novel to those who like main characters to be vampires and like love triangles. This novel has been recommended to me, and I am sad to report that I did not like it as much as I was supposed to, considering that she told me that the book has great reviews. The pacing of the novel may not be for everyone.

I have to give credit to Selena though. She created a very likable character in Mercer and she was able to hurt him, the most out of all the characters. That’s something that I would not be able to do to a favorite character of mine, though I did put a character through torture for my crime fiction novel…

Book Review: Writer’s Dementia

Book Title: Writer’s Dementia writers

This is a short story that I found on Amazon. I looked for it on Goodreads, but I didn’t find it there.

This story is about a character named Natasha who wishes to be put put into a story by the author who thought her up. She, along with other characters realize that their author had dementia and that she’s been affected. She needs to find a story and become part of it before she disappears forever!

Natasha is a good character and trustworthy one. When she finally found a door to a first story, she didn’t go in. She didn’t want to steal the spot that belonged to one of her friends in the waiting area for thought up characters without their homes. That was a really nice touch.

It was really interesting meeting Alter-Simon. The author did a good job showing feelings of a character that was put on hold. It was also interesting how Shame, Worry, and Obsession were brought into the story line, what imagination.

Characters have souls, too. There are different type of characters and each type has their own room in the mind.

I agree with the author. Do characters have an afterlife?

I recommend this short story to writers everywhere. We all get these type of thoughts in our heads so it’s nice to see them in writing.
