My Review: Tales of Love and Woe: The Complete First Volume by Winter Reid

Tales of Love and Woe: The Complete First Volume

by Winter Reid

094575FF-FE02-4CFD-A9C3-A51B529E315EPut away your magic wands and pumpkins.
These are not sweet, tender fairy tales.

Four flawed heroines.
Four classic tales of love and woe retold for modern times…
Because there’s never been an easy road to happily ever after.

The Lonely Crow—Surrounded by coyotes and unexpected magic, a heartbroken ornithologist becomes the target of a park ranger’s aggressive affection. To survive, she must trust the instincts that failed her so completely once already.

Goose—After a one-night-stand leaves her belly swollen and reputation in tatters, an unemployed gas-station clerk finds herself at the mercy of her lover’s mother. But if her own troubled childhood taught her anything, it’s that she’ll fight to the death to protect her baby, and that love never comes the way we expect.

Rosie Waking—Following her father’s disappearance, a small-town waitress lives wedged under her boss’s thumb until a stranger forces her to view her life through a different lens. Can she decide, once and for all, where loyalty stops and subservience begins?

De Rege’s Laundry—When a mob boss’s desperate daughter makes a deal with the devil, she doesn’t expect a handsome ex-soldier to muck it all up. Suddenly, the woman who’d sworn to sacrifice anything for freedom must choose between escape and losing the one person who cares about her happiness.

Beautiful and atmospheric, Tales of Love & Woe is 110k word collection exploring modern womanhood through twisted retellings of The Little Mermaid, The Golden Goose and The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg, Snow White & Rose Red, and The Twelve Dancing Princesses. While love and kindness are major themes in these stories, the darker sides of human nature are, too. As such, this collection is intended only for a mature audience. After all … fairy tales were meant to be grim.

MY REVIEW

Oh, I am SOOO IN LOVE with this book!! I have even ordered the paperback so I can hug it and stare at it and hug it again….you get my drift. Not to mention that I am going to want to reread this collection of four fairy tale retellings over and over!!

“Put away your magic wands and pumpkins.
These are not sweet, tender fairy tales.

Four flawed heroines.
Four classic tales of love and woe retold for modern times…
Because there’s never been an easy road to happily ever after.”

This was from the summary of the book. Perfectly said. These are not sweet, tender fairy tales. There’s never been an easy road to happily ever after. But that doesn’t mean these fair tales are completely depressing. Like the title, they’re tales of love and woe.

But Winter Reid….can I just say, WOW!!! This is one seriously talented author!!! People, I’m not just saying this!! I want to take her home and make her tuck me in and tell me a story every night when I go to bed!! Her characters are SO RICH and VIBRANT!!! All of them!!! There is SO MUCH to these characters and their lives, their thoughts, what they do, and their motives!! Holy Guacamole, it’s a freakin beautiful thing!!! Her worlds are the same way!! I can picture the scene laid out before me. I’m lost in the story…it’s wonderful!! Then…it’s over….and I’m in a freakin book hangover and I haven’t even finished the book!!! Just ONE of the fairy tales!! This happened to me after each of the FOUR fairy tales!!! I thought I was I was going to die, but I loved it!!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book!!!! I would give it 10++ Stars, if there were such a rating!!! I VERY HIGHLY recommended this to ALL!!!!!

Winter Reid

55A61FF2-6C97-47D2-BF51-B8ED1F2FA1C6Winter began writing ten years ago after a dream about a chance encounter in a stable became a novel about two young people falling in love in the Roaring Twenties. After all this time, there is nothing she likes better than a good romance.

She lives in a hot, swampy part of the New South—a perfect place for drinking pecan bourbon over ice and getting lost in a good story…

DeadSteam_Ebook.jpgDead Steam: A Chilling Collection of Dreadpunk Tales of the Dark and Supernatural

Expected Publication Date: October 1st, 2018

Genre: Anthology/ Dreadpunk/ Dark Steampunk/ Horror

For within these pages, the dead rise from their graves to haunt the London Underground, witches whisper their incantations to the wind, a sisterhood of bitten necks hunts fog-drenched alleyways lit only by gaslight, and only one thing is certain: that dread will follow you until you turn that final page.

And that sinking feeling in the pit of your chest? That fear that something is following you, watching you, hunting you? It is not for nothing. Look over your shoulder, dear reader. Watch behind you. Listen to the whispers in the darkness.

But know this…it is all inevitable.

Excerpt

Burke Street Station

The city was frost and fog. Icy crystals formed on the windows of the train station. Breath drifted up in a hazy clouds like puffs of cigarette smoke as Theodore tried to warm his hands, blowing hot breath onto his stiff, cold fingers and rubbing his hands together vigorously. When that failed, he thrust them back into his coat pockets, cursing under his breath. His threadbare coat offered little warmth. Drafts of wind found their way through the broken stitching and the tears in his sleeves like rats scrambling through the cracks in the station walls. A discarded page of newsprint, caught in the rushing wind, tumbled and turned in the air and landed, crumpled and torn, at Theodore’s feet.

He stooped over, picked it up, and glanced at the engraving of a wanted man. Even without a skill for reading, he knew what name was printed beneath the picture of masked man on the page. Anthony Tidkins.

Wanted, he read. That was one word Theodore recognized. Crimes was another, and then, finally…murder.

Rubbish. The newspapers always tried to make villains out of the radical thinkers of the world. The Resurrectionists, who named their organization after the sack-em-up men who provided the anatomists with subjects for their scientific endeavors, were scientists. They had provided the world with aether, revolutionizing air travel. They had brought Prince Charles back from the brink of death. They had devised the engines for the London Underground. Anthony Tidkins himself promised to cure death. Yet the newspaper men still called for his blood. Theodore balled up the page and shoved it in his pocket.

He pulled out his trick coin as he approached the gate. The station master was asleep at his booth, a little dribble of spit running down his chin. Typical. Thoedore stuck his coin in the machine, waited for the gate to open, and then, with a light tug on the fishing line threaded through a little hole in the tip of the coin, it popped back out. Easy. He was in before anybody noticed what he had done. He pocketed the coin and started down the hallway.

Tap-tap, clack, tap-tap, clack, his shoes beat a rhythm on the stone steps. The sole of his left shoe was beginning to wear, and the heel of his shoe tapped against the heel of his foot as he walked. He puffed on his hands again, and peeked over his shoulder. No one was after him. He had done this trick a thousand times before. So why did he feel like there was someone watching him?

Clack, tap-tap, clack. Again, he glanced over his shoulder. The odd double-rhythm of his broken shoe was suddenly unnerving in the deserted station. Where were all the other passengers? Nice folks avoided this place like the plague, especially after midnight. The oil lamps that lit Burke Street Station were so routinely out of oil that he could hardly find his own feet in front of him, but still, Theodore expected to see other passengers. But where were the other vagrants? They should be sleeping in the dark corners of the hallway under blankets made of rags. And the boys from the blacking factory should be heading home from their long shifts, fingers stained black with powders and oil. But there was no one. Only the rats skittering through rat tunnels to keep him company.

Tap-tap, clack, tap-tap, clack.

Another set of footsteps began to follow his own, beating out a different rhythm. A steady tap, tap, tap, tap. He paused to listen, and nothing but silence greeted him. He glanced over his shoulder. Nobody there.

He continued onward, and again, a second set of footsteps started up behind him. He paused to listen. This time, they didn’t stop.

Tap, tap, tap, tap.

Whoever it was, they were getting closer. Closer and closer, louder and louder, tapping out a steady rhythm as they approached down the long, dark hallway. He could almost make out the solitary figure in the gloomy, hazy light, but then the fog grew thicker, and whatever he thought he’d seen was gone. The footsteps kept on getting louder, though, and closer. He turned and ran down the hallway.

A long flight of steps delved deeper into the darkness of Burke Street Station, down, down toward the platform. The train was already rumbling, announcing its approach. It vibrated through Theodore’s toes to the tip of his spine, rattling his bones.

He grabbed the railing all but flew down the staircase. The rumble of the train grew louder and clearer.

“Shit,” Theodore cursed. Taking the steps two at a time, he hurtled down the steps and didn’t stop when he reached the bottom.

Nails on a blackboard. The tines of silverware scraping against a ceramic plate. The screaming madmen at Newgate Asylum. The anguished cry of a mother weeping over her stillborn babe. Theodore had heard these sounds all, but not one compared to the shrill screech of an automatic train rolling into Burke Street. Iron wheels grinding against iron tracks. Hot metal sending up sparks, belching out steam as black as sin. The carriages rattling and clanging against one another. The hiss of hot coal burning in the engines. The shriek of brakes as the train ground to a halt. If it went on long enough, it would surely drive a man mad. Theodore covered his ears with his hands, pressing them against his head to muffle out the deafening noise, and waited for the thundering train to come to a halt.

When it did, he realized it must have drowned out the sound of the steadily approaching footsteps he’d heard in the hallway, because he could hear them again, and they were closer. So close he half expected to feel someone’s hot breath on his neck. He whirled around, but there was no one there. Silence greeted him like an old friend. His heart hammered against his chest.

“There’s no one there,” he muttered to himself. But he didn’t sound convinced.

A smell lingered in the air, as if something foul had passed through. The smell was familiar enough, the breath of a man with rotting teeth. It was a foul, cloying stench. He spun around again, and this time found himself face to face with the man to whom those dreaded footsteps belonged.

Only he wasn’t a man. Not really.

Review: The Sea Was A Fair Master by Calvin Demmer

2F1924CE-AEE3-41A2-90A6-A3941FF91E31When I picked up this collection of 23 stories by the oh-so talented Calvin Demmer, I thought I was about to read 23 short horror stories. Oh….people!! This is SO MUCH more than that!! In fact, these stories are the kind of stories that stick in your head and aren’t too quick to leave. In fact, I savored this book. I read a couple of stories here and there. I loved reading it like that!!! Everyone is different, another person might choose to read it all in one go! But I liked having a couple of stories to carry around in my head for the day!! And they really did stay with me like no other story. Because many of them just end leaving the rest up to you to wonder about. So my imagination would be buzzing around about the characters and why this happened, or what might have happened further on down the road, etc. I just loved how these stories had me going!!

Now, back to them being all horror. They weren’t really. In fact I realized this afterward, so I reread the book description, or summary, which says, “The Sea Was a Fair Master is a collection of 23 stories, riding the currents of fantasy, science fiction, crime, and horror. There are tales of murder, death, loss, revenge, greed, and hate. There are also tales of hope, survival, and love.”

Calvin Demmer is a Master of Words!!! Yes he has quite the imagination, but to be able to put that across in words that affect people the way you want it to, or maybe even more profoundly than you even planned….well that is indeed a gift with words!!!

Just to give you a sneak peek of a few titles, here’s a few of my favorites:

– On The Seventh Day
– The Peeper
– Fear The Clowns
– Voodoo Child
– Letting The Dead Grow
– Hangman
– Graves

Hardened Hearts by 17 Different Authors.

056E6DF9-8B96-4945-A38D-09423499543B

“Love hurts. Love bites. Love’s a bitch. Love is a battlefield. I hate myself for loving you.
Love isn’t always pretty, is it? In fact, it can be downright scary, which is why for every catchy-but-disgustingly-sappy song with a title like Love Will Keep Us Together there’s one that strongly begs to differ: Love Will Tear Us Apart.”

“The stories in Hardened Hearts are about love that hurts. They are tales of forbidden love, and love that’s on borrowed time. They are stories about sexual love and love between star-crossed romantics, but also included here are stories of a guilt-ridden father’s love for his little girl, obsessions with inanimate objects, and even one woman’s unnatural, and shared, love for a spider (!). Love is strange, like the Everly Brothers sang way back in 1965, but once you’ve got it you never wanna quit. And, as each entry in this fine anthology proves, there’s nothing on Earth that’s more terrifying.”

I enjoyed some of these stories more than others, but overall I really enjoyed the book! I found it fascinating, funny, horrifying, creepy, dark and even a little sad (I didn’t cry though). I want to list a few of my favorites, but I’ll put on top the one I enjoyed the most!

HEIRLOOM by Theresa Braun – I really felt this one deserved it’s own book!! A++
THE HEART OF THE ORCHARD by Erin Sweet Al-Mehairi – This one deserved it’s own book also! A+
IT BREAKS MY HEART TO WATCH YOU ROT by Somer Canon A
DOG TIRED by Eddie Generous A-

Those were just my favorites. I enjoyed the others too. I recommend this as a very different, creepy, dark, fascinating, quick little read. There were a few authors on here that I already knew were very good, but now I’ve learned of some others. That’s what I love about these anthologies.

Review for Deadman’s Tome Final Contact!

IMG_0975.jpgDeadman’s Tome Final Contact by Eric S Brown, James Grim Desborough, David M Hoenig, Brian Melechy Quinn, Candace Robinson , Nadeleine Swann, Dj Tyrer, Kristofer Velasquez

Goodreads description: Deadman’s Tome presents First Contact. This volume of galactic terror features stories that warn of the consequences of bold space exploration, exploitative mining, venturing too far, and contact with foreign entities. You see, dear reader, we are not alone, and our first contact might just be our last!

So this is an anthology of short Sci-Fi stories that are pretty dang creepy. As the book summary says the stories warn of the consequences of bold exploration, exploitative mining, venturing too far, and contact with foreign entities. And first contact is NOTHING like E.T. in these stories. I really had fun reading them, of course some I enjoyed more than others, but overall this book was a lot of creepy, sci-fi fun!

I’ll mention a few of my favorites, I guess. Here’s my very favorites:

~A Slow Death by James ‘Grim’ Desborough

~Dancers in the Darkness by Eric S Brown

~A Layer Hidden by Candace Robinson – This one is my very, very favorite!!!

~The Octopus In The Corner of the Room by Madeleine Swann

These are my very favorites, but I enjoyed reading them all. They were some freaky fun!!!
