Something Wicked This Way Comes

Elizabeth Yon is the Empress of Creepy. Seriously. In her latest bookย Blackfern Girls (Bannerwing Books, 2014), she pulls four stories from the murk of the Johns Woods and splatters them across the page. The atmosphere embraces a reader. It’s almost hypnotic……until the characters squeeze.

And the reader forgets to breathe.

Or can’t.

Breathe.

If you’re looking for some Mood for Hallowe’en reading, downloadย Blackfern Girlsย right this minute.

Before someone puts a spell on you.

    • The stories live up to the cover, Linda. I especially hope she expands the second one into a full-blown novel.

    I’m terrified of scary. I once attempted to read a Dean Koontz book and made it to page 63 but had nightmares every single night until I mailed the book to a friend who was very far away…it is the ONLY book I never finished and I’ve learned that I go so deeply into what I’m reading and watching that I protect myself by not reading scary….but I will pass it on to others who like scary. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Scary is a tough read, especially when the writer does it well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I also attempted to read a Dean Koontz book that everybody in my family read and loved — I just couldn’t get through half of it. And I tried three times. So maybe this book will be my substitute.

    I loved the book and all the stories. I haven’t slept well in a week because of Rumkin but it’s been worth it. Elizabeth has a gift with descriptions. (I don’t normally do scary books/movies but this one exception was so worth it.)
