“Interview With The Vampire” – “From Hell”

Published April 18, 2017 by Shadow Girl

 

It’s been five years since the grisly events in Whitechapel, and the man believed responsible for the crimes, Jack the Ripper, has yet to be captured. Charles Hapgood is writing a book about the murders, and has agreed to meet with someone who has information on the case. Everything about this meeting is unusual, so when the writer invited the stranger into his home at 9:00 p.m., he is already on edge.The man introduces himself as Mr. Miller, and begins to tell Hapgood that he would like to hire him to write his memoirs. Ignoring Hapgood’s obvious irritation, and his many requests to leave, Miller finally brings the conversation back around to the murders, and Annie Chapman. He produces a piece of evidence, unknown to everyone but the investigators, and Charles Hapgood finally understands.
The man sitting in front of him is Jack the Ripper, and he has a story to tell.

We’ve heard the theories, seen the movies, and researched the case online for ourselves. We KNOW this story. Right?
Wrong.
Michael Bray takes us deeper, and gives us a voyeuristic introspective of the MAKING of the Ripper.

 

Part two of I WAS JACK THE RIPPER will be available on May 19th, 2017.

(I can’t wait until May 19th! I’m totally invested in this story, and I can’t wait for more!!)

Eternal Sunshine of the Mutant Mind

Published April 8, 2017 by Shadow Girl

I saw this quote on Instagram, and became immediately obsessed.
 It’s Joel & Clementine
 It’s Mickey & Mallory
 It’s the new mutant romance novel from Kevin Strange. 

“Cult horror filmmaker Brian Sully has isolated himself to a simple life on the Oregon coast after being publicly shamed by the lead actress of his most recent B-Movie monster flick for sending her pictures of his dick. Brian’s years of isolation have left him on the brink of suicide. But after his best friend and producer books him at a 20th anniversary horror festival honoring their first feature film, Brian Sully’s life is about to change. Is true love real? What if you fell in love with something not quite… Human? Would you pursue it? Would you let anything stop you? Even death?  I DIED IN A BED OF ROSES  is Kevin Strange’s first ever crack at the paranormal romance genre. But if you’re expecting a mushy love story, well, you don’t know Kevin Strange!”

I’ve always loved the eye-catching book covers put out by Kev, (and some of the old SHB gang), but the cover for  I DIED IN A BED OF ROSES  is gorgeous. (You gotta love that red hair!) The cover-art is by ‘kinkmaster’ William Skaar, (the creator of Carnigor). Be sure to check out his website!
Do I HAVE to say that (like most of the things I post) his work, and site, is 18+?  (♫ ♪ Ass n titties, ass ass n titties ♪ ♫)


I haven’t read IDIABOR yet, but I plan on it – very soon. BOLO for the review!

THE ABUSE OF ASHLEY COLLINS by Jon Athan

Published March 22, 2017 by Shadow Girl

I don’t  know why I ever chose to torture myself and willingly read A CHILD CALLED IT,  but Dave Pelzer broke something inside me – I haven’t been right since.  Knowing that, you’d think I’d have learned a lesson, (yeah, I know… I’m audibly laughing right now, too).  Nope. Years after ‘ACCI’ I decided that I wanted to read THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, and I let Jack Ketchum walk right in and start poking at the wound that David Pelzer left with a big, pointy stick.  I think it was the masochist in me who invited Mendal W. Johnson to drop by and sucker-punch my PTSD in the back of the head.  As far as the ‘Let’s Go Play At The Adams fiction/non-fiction debate’ goes – I’m sticking with IT’S FICTION, but I’m sure all the atrocities have been committed, many times, and on many different Barbaras. 
Like LGPATATHE ABUSE OF ASHLEY COLLINS is not a true story – but it very well could be. Watching the decreasing sanity, and the elevating brutality of Ashley’s parents demonstrates just how fast situations can escalate. One little poke at the wrong moment, and all control is lost – you can’t come back from certain things.

       

THIS IS A WORK OF FICTION. It is disturbing, and hard to read at times, but the author is not exploiting issues to gain shock value for a horror story. Jon Athan comes at the story from every possible angle, from every p.o.v., and sheds light on problems that most families would keep hidden in the dark. Let me misquote one of my favorite movies before you start reading…

WARNING: This book contains scenes of graphic violence, including violence towards children. This book is about abuse—verbal, physical, and emotional. This book does not feature any explicit sex scenes, but it does discuss sexual abuse. This book is not intended for those easily offended or appalled.

Ashley Collins, a sixteen-year-old girl, has severe behavior issues. She regularly fights with her parents, Logan and Jane. When the fights become personal and physical, Logan and Jane decide to take matters into their own hands. They chain their daughter in the basement and abuse her in an attempt to rescue her from her bad behavior… while delving into their own deviance and depravity.

This is a story of family and abuse. This is a story of violence and discipline. This is the abuse of Ashley Collins.

Jon Athan, author of A Family of Violence, brings you an uncompromising vision of human horror. Can the cycle of abuse be broken?

 

Find The Abuse of Ashley Collins on Goodreads, Amazon, and it’s available through the KU program.

Connect with the author via Twitter – @Jonny_Athan, Facebook,  through the official Jon Athan Website, or his author pages on Goodreads, BookLikes, LibraryThing  & Amazon. You can email him directly at: info@jon-athan.com, or head on over to the West Coast and start stalking him the old fashioned way!
