Review: Deadman’s Tome Final Contact

Title: Deadman’s Tome Final Contact

Authors: Eric S Brown, James Grim Desborough, David M Hoenig, Brian Malachy Quinn, Candace Robinson, Madeleine Swann, DJ Tyrer, Kristofer Velasquez

Date of Publication: September 1st, 2017

Summary:

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!

My Review:

So, I do have a short story in this one which is scifi/horrorish, but I’m going to review the rest of the book. This group of short stories was pretty cool. I felt like it was diverse in the content and the way they were written by each author, yet the common denominator was scifi.

My favorites were, A Slow Death by: James Grim Desborough, which was very abstractish and had an interesting vibe! I also loved The Octopus in the Corner of the Room, even though Jane made me mad! It was a weird and quirky story which I’m all about!

I finished this book in one sitting, and I was invested in each of the stories, and it made me absolutely want to stay away from space! Even if you aren’t a scifi fan, you should definitely check out these stories!!

Characters: The Bride of Glass + Free Book

First off since The Bride of Glass is coming out Friday, you can download the first book, Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, for FREE today on Amazon. If you’ve read it? Still download it! If it’s not something you would normally read? Still download it! http://a.co/g4F99TS

Next, I had put up all these on my Facebook and Twitter, but thought I would share it all at one time. If you have read Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, then you should know these characters. If you haven’t read it, then that means you should read it! Again Quinsey is FREEEEEEEEEEE right now!

If I had the time, I would have found people that I feel like actually match up to the characters, but what google mainly provides is a bunch of model type poses!

The Old Man at the End of the World Cover

The Old Man at the End of the World: Bite #1 by A.K. Silversmith

Genre: Short Story/ Comedy-Horror/ Zombies/ Parody

Release Date: February 16, 2017

Blurb:

THE GOOD LIFE meets DOUGLAS ADAMS meets SHAUN OF THE DEAD! – Dave F, Amazon

Gerald Stockwell-Poulter couldn’t help but feel it was extraordinary just how quickly his life had changed. One moment he was earthing up leeks in the West Sussex sunshine and the next he was rooted to the spot as Rodney Timmins from the end allotment ambled towards him, arms outstretched, blood pouring from a hole in his neck and a look in his eye which suggested that he was less after help and more after a helping of Gerald.

Now, as Gerald’s life takes a quick turn for the worse, he must do things he has never done before. After 87 largely well-behaved years as a model citizen, less than four hours into the ‘zompocalypse’ and he has already killed a neighbour, rescued a moody millennial drug dealer and forged an unlikely allegiance with a giant ginger Scotsman. And it isn’t even tea time.

Join Gerald as he and his newfound allies navigate the post-apocalyptic English countryside in their hilarious bid to stay off the menu.

Genre: Chick-lit/women’s fiction

Blurb:

One pill every 7 hours. That could be all it takes to give Chanel the chance to finally see the world around her.

Chanel is an independent 19-year-old, despite what her overprotective mother and senator father may think. Being the daughter of a Senator comes with its own problems, one simple afternoon out with friends becomes overwhelming when they’re swarmed by reporters.

Keeping the secret of the experimental treatment close to her chest, she is able to fool everyone but her hawkeyed bodyguard, Leon, that has now been assigned to protect her.

Chanel doesn’t want a bodyguard, but will she get more than she bargained for?

Angelina Kerner

I wish I could sit down with you and have a nice warm cup of tea or a steaming mug of coffee, but since that’s not possible, how about a cyber-hug? I love hugs and coffee, a lot of coffee. 

So, as an introduction, let’s start with, “I love to read and write”. I have so many stories inside my head that sometimes it’s impossible to know what’s real anymore. That doesn’t stop me from enjoying a great novel, though. Reading and writing is not all that I love, though it comes a close second. I love dancing, needlework, spending time with my family and friends, and most of all, the holidays. That’s when my family is all smiles. Smiles are the best, don’t you think?

I started writing stories for teen girls because I started writing in high school and I understood teen girls… or at least I thought so at the time. Throw in a hot guy, romance, and drama to get the perfect hypnosis formula for girls and some boys. Later, as I grew up, my characters grew up with me. I write a variety of books for all ages, mostly fantasy and chick-lit. An odd combination? You be the judge.

Currently, I divide my time between my family, work, writing, and a lot of cats. I’m also a new mother and you get to read about my journey on my blog once a month!

Aggravated Momentum by Didi Oviatt

Aggravated Momentum Cover

Genre: Thriller/ Suspense/ Murder Mystery/ Mature 18+

Release Date: September 12, 2016

Blurb:

Not everything is as it seems in what appears to be an average family. When danger lurks so close to home, skeletons emerge, and the darkest of secrets surface, causing twisted desires to become reality. Aggravated Momentum offers the perspective of some very diverse and unique characters, including fun, witty personalities to fall in love with, along with an intellectual killer to die for. You may be surprised as to whom exactly you can relate. Is it the cold, calculated murderer, who’s name is yet to be revealed? Markie or Kam, the independent sisters, guilty of nothing more than getting tangled with the wrong people at the most inopportune times? Or, the cowardly snake curled in a hidden corner? Who are you, exactly? And, more importantly, who are they? The deeper you dig into the psyche of another, the more breath taking are the secrets you will find.

Deadman’s Tome: Monsters Exist by Theresa Braun & Mr. Deadman

Monsters Exist

Genre: Horror Anthology/ Short Stories

Release Date: July 1, 2017

Blurb:

From the time we are young, we fear the monster under the bed or in the closet, making it impossible to sleep without a nightlight. Then, we hear stories of Bigfoot, and maybe even the Mothman around campfires. When we are adults, we wonder if there might actually be supernatural creatures lurking in the shadows. Are these tall tales and urban legends only metaphors for what horrific things humanity is capable of—or do monsters exist?

Go to some terrifying places with this cast of authors. You will be dragged into mystifying realities where demonic fairies hide, where devil monkeys lure carnival-goers to their demise, where Goatmen seek to destroy their prey, and where the goddess of death puts out a hit on victims of her choice. These shocking tales will have you biting your nails and locating that childhood nightlight. Because, in the end, we all know monsters do exist.
