Thank You to All the Readers and Authors


This isn't a promo post or a buy-my-book post. This is a THANK YOU from the bottom of my spooky heart post. I always loved reading, writing, horror, and Halloween. I always wanted to write my own stories and make my novels. When I first started self-publishing I didn't know what the hell I was doing. I was messing up covers, not taking time with my stories or editing, and I even had different book titles and author names. I have figured it all out in one of the hardest and troubling years (2020), and now everything is the way it should be and I'm proud of my books. And what I really can't believe is how many awesome readers and authors I've met from social media. You have all been very awesome, helpful, inspiring, motivating, and I can't thank you all enough for giving my books a chance. Even the people who don't like them. Thank you for even reading it. And I appreciate the beautiful and creepy book photos of my books and the videos and shares and word of mouth. You have all been so great to me, so I plan to make a short story or novella free in the near future for you all to enjoy. Thank you all so very much for making this possible. Much spooky love. Keep it Spooky! E. Reyes

Dead Leaves (9 Tales from the Witching Season) by Kealan Patrick Burke


Dead Leaves: 9 Tales from the Witching SeasonDead Leaves: 9 Tales from the Witching Season by Kealan Patrick Burke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is definitely a good collection of short stories for Halloween. Each story invoked the feeling of autumn, Halloween, and the darkness that lingers just around the corner as the witching season is upon us. The two stories that I absolutely enjoyed were "The Tradition" and "The One Night of the Year". I highly recommend this book to fellow Halloween enthusiasts and horror book lovers.

It's Been A While...

I haven't posted on here in a while! I believe I stopped because things got incredibly hectic with COVID-19, and my job as a retail worker became strenuous and overbearing. Plus, it has been such a headache just trying to stay safe, healthy, and making sure I am not bringing the virus home to my family. I truly hope all of you are safe and continue to wear a mask!

Anyway, as some of you may know who follow me on social media, I am releasing a new anthology this October titled THE HALLOWEEN GRINDHOUUSE. I have not released any information about the project yet other than there is an abandoned house, an old tv set, a VCR, and a videotape containing the worst snuff shorts anyone can witness. You can check out the cover below!

I haven't been reading as much, but I have gotten back on that motorcycle and started reading again. The last book I finished (today) was The Witching Season by Kealan Patrick Burke, and it was such a terrific Halloween read. What are you currently reading?

Well, I hope you all are doing well and continue to do so. Come and say hey whenever you please! 

Keep it spooky!

Joe Hill - Full Throttle - Book Review



The stories in Joe Hill's FULL THROTTLE can go from meth-dealing bikers to a secret door that opens to fauns, from ghostly patrons returning way past-due books to a bookmobile to a field of tall grass that is like a fatal dose of LSD. Not one of these stories was a dud, and I enjoyed them.

I have read "Throttle" (a story about a biker gang being chased down by a ravenous semi), "Wolverton Station" (a train station that is populated with werewolves), "By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain" (A Loch Ness type monster washes ashore), "Thumbprint" (a story about a woman back from Iraq who is being hunted by someone in the states), "Twittering from the Cirus of the Dead" (a story composed of a series of Tweets by a young girl who takes a nasty trip with her family and they wind up at a strange circus), and "In the Tall Grass" (a pregnant woman and her brother are stopped by a voice yelling for help on the side of the road, in the tall grass, and end up lost and going in circles once they step inside), but it was years ago and, honestly, I feel as if I grew as a reader and I'm able to retain what I read a lot better. I don't know if that happens to other people (get better with reading the more you read), but it certainly happened to me, so it was like reading these stories for the first time. And I was surprised and still enjoyed them like they were new.

I am very happy that I purchased a signed edition of this book from Barnes and Noble because I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to many more short stories from Joe Hill.
