Literary Horror - great reviews

This post was last modified: 21 Jan 2015 01:06 PM by Simon K..
Getting some great reviews for my horror novella (with more to come) ...

DARK WAVES

From - The Horror Fiction Review

"I lingered, reading and re-reading the descriptions and details of the inn (The Dawlish Inn, the book's setting), far longer than any normal person probably would have done."

From Amazon

"The author does an excellent job of keeping the tension ramped up throughout the story." - Cphe

"Beautiful turns of phrase and some thoughtful prose really elevates what is essentially a simple story." - BunnyRabbits

"Peppered with humorous dialogue and atmospheric description - I wasn't reading, I was there! Things were just happening. Weird things...Dark Waves also provides a fascinating education on the world of infrafrasonic sound - Kearns clearly knows his stuff. Other themes include the psychology of fear, relationship challenges and following one's passions. It's all in there delivered with an impressive wit that carries one quickly to the back cover." - Dr JHP O'Connor

From a friend ...

"I didn't want to read it at night."

DARK WAVES

A great review from The Books of Blood review site:

"In a book about hauntings the key is the presentation of said hauntings. You need the mystery. You need the fear and uncertainty. You don't want to see too much too soon and lose the tension. Thankfully, details are given sparingly as the story builds. John, Matt and Lisbeth all have strange experiences of unease while in the dark cellar beneath the Inn, with brief images half seen out of the corner of their eyes. All the characters have interesting and distinct personalities and we do genuinely fear for our protagonist's safety. The experiences in the cellar stretch them psychologically."

(Full review available on their site, and on the book's Kindle page, link above)
