Optical Delusion (Mail Order Massacres)

Optical Delusion by Hunter Shea
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Optical Delusion centers around a gag-gift, ordered from the back of comic book, that begins to consume a man’s life.
Martin can’t stop peeking – but, for him, it’s all in the name of science! ::dramatic eye roll:: The fun is long over when Martin realizes that he has taken peeping too far, and there are just some things just can’t be unseen.

I love how Hunter Shea builds the story up!

You can feel the main characters inner conflict & turmoil in the beginning, but his desire to see more soon overrides any sense of guilt he may have once had.
It’s so much fun riding along as Martin loses his grip, and slides faster & further down that slippery slope!
I know I’d be in the same boat, My need to poke my nose into everything is already out of control – having x-ray specs would turn me into a fa-reak!

Matt Shaw’s 200th Kindle Release!

Published July 22, 2017 by Shadow Girl

A new horror to sink your teeth into...

The

TASTE

of the food he’d cooked her was divine. When she told him, over their many online messages, what her favourite three course meal was – she never expected him to cook it for her and yet, that was exactly what he had done. Sitting opposite her, he watched her enjoy every mouthful despite not wanting any food for himself. A man content with the glass of red before him: A liquid dinner. Normally she would feel uncomfortable with a relative stranger watching her eat, but the food was so good that she didn’t care. Anyway, she knew this was her treat… Just as what he had coming for himself – as soon as she was done eating – would be his treat, not that he hurried her to finish. He was happy to wait. He knew

all good things come to those who wait

Have you read PLENTY OF FREAKS? OMG, Poor Matt could have ended up in so many of his stories!

To meTASTE feels like a re-imagining of the 2001 ‘Love Cannibalism’ case involving Armin Meiwes & Bernd Brandes.   Details on THAT are below… heh heh heh…

Like the rest of the White Cover collection, this short story is intended for those who want a quick read before bed, or members of Kindle Unlimited. If you’re looking for something longer, please try any of the Black Cover Range.

Warning: Strong sexual content.

See below for details on Armin Meiwes & Bernd Brandes –

MARY BLAKE: A Nasty Novelette by Sam West

Published June 30, 2017 by Shadow Girl

WARNING!  THIS IS A VIOLENT,
BLOOD THIRSTY, AND MORALLY REPREHENSIBLE PIECE OF FICTION!

★★★★★/★★★★★

Fifteen years ago, Casey Brown and her college friends did something very, very bad to an innocent girl.

What really happened to poor Mary Blake that night?

There are whispers in the woods that surround that old abandoned house. Urban legends are repeated, and sightings of their usual suspects are sworn on – by a friend of a friend of that guy’s second cousin who knew a dude who swears they saw ‘He/She/It’ one dark, and stormy night. Bloody Mary, the Slit-Mouth Woman, Click Clack, the Slender Man… they aren’t the only boogeymen in those woods…
People say that the house is haunted by it’s original owner… The things that Mr. Jones did to his wife and two daughters went way beyond ‘slaughter’ – the depravity of his actions makes the family’s eventual slaughter a blessing.

Now, Casey’s nightmares are invading her waking life.
Mary Blake is back, and she’s not alone.
Only the truth will set her free.

You can still find MARY BLAKE, and other titles by Sam West, for #free on Amazon with your Kindle Unlimited plan – FOR NOW.

I was Jack The Ripper (Part Two) by Michael Bray

Published June 15, 2017 by Shadow Girl

 

 

Everybody knows of the terrible Murders which took place in Whitechapel, England in 1888. The notorious Jack the Ripper was responsible for the mutilation and murder of five women before he slipped away into the night never to be seen again. In this blend of fiction based on fact, Writer Charles Hapgood comes face to face with the a man claiming ripper himself years after the last brutal murder took place, and is intent on telling the story of how he was transformed from a regular child to the evil beast that he became.
As Hapgood hears the story unfold, his initial skepticism is challenged by his unexpected visitor’s extensive knowledge of the crimes. As Hapgood listens, he is plunged into a world of madness, squalor, abuse and manipulation when his visitor tells how his hatred for women was countered by a desire to love and be loved, and how when obsession turns to rejection, an ordinary man can go to extraordinary lengths when he feels there is no other option left but to become a monster.

In part Two, Miller continues to confide in Hapgood about the events that transformed him from man to the monster he would become, causing Hapgood to question his own morals when more shocking and tragic details of Miller’s life are told.

Mr. Bray sure did his research before putting these stories together, and I’m enjoying my visit in 1893 Whitechapel with him as my guide. Miller makes a new friend near the end of Part Two – and I can’t wait to see where the story is going to go in Part 3! Miller recognizes the man right away – you will too ::winks::

THE LAST MOTEL by Brett McBean

Published May 4, 2017 by Shadow Girl

They only wanted to stay one night.
But one night can last a lifetime at… THE LAST MOTEL.

The Lodgepole Pine Motel is the setting for nerve-wracking terror when a group of unsuspecting travelers find themselves trapped in a nightmare of violence and mayhem. Madge Fraiser is the kindly old owner of the rustic mountain hideaway, which, during one long night, will become awash with blood, as the guests are stalked one by one by a sadistic killer. Who will live to see the dawn, and who will learn that this is one motel where checking in can be murder? 

Here’s a great question for everyone…
THE LAST MOTEL was published 07.31.2011 by LegumeMan Books*(awww… I MISS LegumeMan!!), so why the fuk did I JUST find it?! SOMEONE really should have recommended this to me years ago! Finger Of Shame, my friends. Finger Of Shame.

  

A husband and wife…
A pair of petty criminals…
A young man…
And a perverse serial killer…

It’s Halloween night, and the Lodgepole motel is seeing more action than it has in years. The owner can feel trouble coming as she checks in each of the guests. None of them can shake the feeling of déjà vu as they meet, and start to get to know each other.  They’ll soon find out they are all linked by events that happened earlier that night –  each link/event being more fukked up & twisted than the last!

I’m not going to take the chance of ruining this story for you, so as I’m shutting up – you need to go get this book & read it!! Hurry up, so we can talk about it!! I’m DYING!

Find THE LAST MOTEL on Amazon, Goodreads, BookLikes, and IMDB ::winkwink::
