Getting personal with Stephanie M. Wytovich


How old were you when you first wrote your first story? The first story I wrote was in middle school and it was about a rogue vampire c l an who killed a young girl’s parents, which then caused her to spend the rest of her life tracking them down so she could avenge her family. It was super violent, and my teacher actually sent the story , and me, to the guidance counselor. *smirks*   How many books have you written? I’ve written five poetry collections with Raw Dog Screaming Press ( Hysteria: A Collection of Madness , Mourning Jewelry , An Exorcism of Angels , Brothel , and Sheet Music to My Acoustic Nightmare ) and my debut novel, The Eighth , is published with Dark Regions Press.   Tell m...

Marge Simon Interview


I’m pleased to have Marge Simon on board for an interview. Marge’s story will appear this year in Tales from the Lake, edited by Kenneth W. Cain, Crystal Lake Publishing.   Where did you get your concept for “The Midland Hotel”?   The Midland Hotel began as a poem. The poem was inspired by a trip my husband and I took to meet up with some friends in Tampa, FL. They booked us rooms overnight at a hotel.     Several stories high, It looked okay from th e outside, but once in our room we were less than pleased.  Rather than a pile carpet, it had tile floors. The bedspread was thin , with one flat pillow per bed. The bathroom offered a used bar of soap and half a toil et paper roll. There were n...

Book Review: “The Victim’s Club” by Jeffery Deaver

I read “The Victim’s Club to take the bad taste from the preceding review out of my mouth. And I’m glad I did. Jeffery Deaver’s novella (called ‘Kindle Single’ by Amazon) is just what the doctor ordered. A sleepy county police establishment in a Massachussets college town sees Detective Jon Avery take over a colleague’s … Continue reading Book Review: “The Victim’s Club” by Jeffery Deaver → Original link

Book Review: “The War Planners” by Andrew Watts

I don’t know how this book can be called a bestseller without insulting readers’ intelligence. There are six things I expect from a novel: a plausible story, well developed characters, a good hook, an adequate title, good writing and a satisfying ending; even if the novel is episodic. “The War Planners” has only one of … Continue reading Book Review: “The War Planners” by Andrew Watts → Original link

South Southwest Wales by David Owain Hughes


Now, it is no secret that I love David’s writing. His stories are absolutely amazing. Most all of what he has written has been horror. There was one previously that was one of my favorites and still is that was not horror. He will scream when I say it was one of the best he has written. That book is Collision Course. I also have a copy of it in my bookshelf. That being said this book definitely shows that David can write in any genre he wants to dive into. That folks take true talent. Trust me you want to read this book. It is a real barn burner. Don’t wait…. go get it right now.   The story starts with a washed up detective named Sampson Valentine. He use to be the best of the best until bo...

Book Review: “Hard Road” by JB Turner

A half hour after I finished “Hard Road” adrenaline still rushed through my body. It’s that sort of exciting novel. It that makes you want more. Happily, it’s book one of a thriller series. Jon Reznick is a former Delta Force operative who specializes in wet work for an unidentified employer which he believes to … Continue reading Book Review: “Hard Road” by JB Turner → Original link

Book Review: “Remote Access” by Barry Finlay

I will try to diminish the controversy of this review by staying out of the explosive politics, but I’m not sure I’ll be successful. First and foremost, this is a superb novel screaming out of the current events pages. Barry Finlay is an accomplished novelist and has laid out a plot and developed characters that … Continue reading Book Review: “Remote Access” by Barry Finlay → Original link

Book Review: “The Left Hand” by Jordan Allen

Jordan Allen weaves a semi-dystopian tale of government intrusion gone wrong: a city state’s people divided into Nobles and Sinisters based on DNA differences. The Nobles are the good guys; a privileged class of citizens whose DNA evaluation makes them superior to the Sinisters. Nobles live in the pleasant side of their city-state. Sinisters endure … Continue reading Book Review: “The Left Hand” by Jordan Allen → Original link

Getting personal with Billy Chizmar


Billy Chizmar, much like his father, excels in everything he does. He works hard and plays hard and it shows! This up-and-coming writer/screenwriter is clearly one to watch. I have had the honor of reading his stories and reviewing the book he wrote with his dad. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect but was completely thrilled reading Widow’s Point. To say it’s good is putting it mildly. It’s brilliant. His writing and Richards mesh perfectly and it was impossible to tell where one stopped and the other began. If you missed reading works by Billy Chizmar I highly suggest you change that immediately. You will love it! Billy is also a very skilled lacrosse player and played in high school an...

Getting personal with Stanley Wiater


    Stanley Wiater is one of those people who for me has had the dream job. Getting to rub elbows with the who’s who of horror. Writing interviews and meeting some of the biggest and best in this industry. He is very smart, humble and has an amazing sense of humor. I first met him when he was on The Panic Room Radio Show. I couldn’t hear enough. I had to know more about this man and his life. So I begged for an interview. Fortunate for me he decided to let this star struck girl do just that and I even got to speak to him on the phone. For me, it was another dream interview! What follows is just part of what we spoke about. I can’t say thank you for this opportunity enough! You are incredible...

Getting Personal with Patrick James Ryan


  My next victim is Patrick James Ryan. He is a super nice man and a really great author. He is very skilled in martial-arts and loves Bruce Lee! He has a great sense of humor and always makes me laugh. His books are amazing and if you have not picked one up you must!! Recently I read Blood Verse and totally loved it. Until I read that I didn’t realize that he is also a talented dark poet. There is a story then a poem then story in this book. I really enjoyed that about it and in fact I begged him to send in several submissions for Hellbound’s Poetry anthology. I’m proud to say that he did! First, let me offer some thanks to you, Becky for this great opportunity to be interviewed by you for ...

Book Review: “Death of a Movie Star” by Timothy Patrick

This novel has more plot twists than Carter’s got little liver pills (do we still say that in Appalachia?)…but in a good way. StarBash is the highest rated reality show. The celebrity who lasts longest wins a $10 million movie deal. Lasting the longest is also sort of humiliating; they descend from an initial luxurious … Continue reading Book Review: “Death of a Movie Star” by Timothy Patrick → Original link

A Better Life by Kyle M. Scott. Review by:Mandy Tyra

😉
The Savvy Scotsman scribes again!! FINALLY, it has been too damn long since I have had the pleasure of Mr. Scott’s company to keep me warm at night. Not my choice, it’s been over a year since his last release, The Club; an unhinged and animalistic ~ goretastic and orgylicious ~ story about innocence lost, inhibitions shed, and overindulgence embraced to the extents of which would make the tour guides at Sodom and Gomorrah blush. It was crude and lewd and one hell of a delightfully down and dirty read! This book, A Better Life, is much more reserved, subtle in it’s horrificness yet still horrific indeed. It’s more of an atmospheric slow-burn, a character driven tale with an age-old ethical di...

Book Review: “West of the Dead Line” by Phil Truman


  Talent can’t be hidden, and certainly Phil Truman is a talented writer in the very special and specialized Western genre. “West of the Dead Line” can compare favorably with the best of Louis L’amour. Bass Reeves is a daring but unassuming US Marshall. He’s also a former slave whose exploits are the subject of … Continue reading Book Review: “West of the Dead Line” by Phil Truman → Original link

Getting personal with S.C. Burke


“  I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, but was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I had a youth shrouded in perpetual 80s themes, cartoons, toys, comic books, and most importantly- film. I studied film well into my 20’s, hoping to have a career writing or directing. However, my attention kept fall to writing, mainly experimental prose, something that slowly seeped into everything I did. So, it was then that I decided to devote myself entirely to the art of words.  This was the birth of NihilismRevised – an independent literary collective of underground writers, all coming together to create books in basements, then distributing our labors at live readings and street corners. After several years, t...
