I usually start off with a description except there isn’t one because I didn’t get it from Amazon and it doesn’t appear to be for sale.

I came across it by accident and you know how every now and again you come across a little gem. Well, this is it.

I visited the author’s website and as I was reading, one of those annoying boxes dropped down and obscured my view. It invited me to join the newsletter with an offer of a free book. Being a sucker for a free book, I joined.

I know of the author, have spoken to her but never read any of hers. They are mostly Science Fiction/Fantasy stories, books I tend to sreet away from as a rule.

On inpulse I filled in the details and was invited to download the free book. I didn’t even see the cover. It was a short read and having just finished two short reads on the run, decided to start on this one.

What a cracking story! I absolutely loved it!

It was set on a planet where people were forced to leave earth mainly because of terrorist attacks.  scientists had also discovered transportation. Now, if you’re not a fan of this genre your eyes are probably glazing over. But stop, keep reading!

The story is set in a bar and Deak is the bartender. Real people, real situations, and a message in the story that will resonate.

Never give up hope.

Deak is in a deep depression and had let himself go, thus not seeing things as they really were. There are people who care for him, he just doesn’t recognise them. Just when we think we are going to see the last of him, something happens that changes his outlook on life.

Ah, it was just a great story, I loved it!  Hope is such. great word. Without hope, where would we be?

If you want to read this story, you’ll have to sign up for the newsletter and that really isn’t a bad thing. If her newsletters are anything like her blog posts, they will be worth it.

This is the website, I urge you take a look and give it a read!

Karen’s Book Buzz Review

I’ve always said I am not a fan of horror but find myself reading the odd one or two. The last ones I read were also Electric Eclectic books. Because most of them are shorter reads, it tempts me to give them a try.  I have’t been disappointed yet.

A Flash of Horror is another excellent book. Simply because the style of writing was easy to read and the flashes of horror really laid out the scary side.  There are twelve stories in all. Some I’d read in a previous collection and still enjoyed second time around.

Each story was short, just a few pages long and often with a twist in the tail, something you don’t expect, then wham! There is it, the explanation – usually nothing like I imagined. Cleverly written, the stories don’t say much, they leave the inbetween bits out for your imagination to do the work, and it truely does. Don’t read it at night!

Having read a few stories of late that were short and often difficult to get into as I tried to work out what they were saying, where it was going, and if it was worth carrying on. It was so refreshing to read straight forward, straight to the point writing that was clear and easy to understand.

You will finish this book in no time, so it’s recommended for a journey, or the hour to relax into for some me time.

A Flash of Horror

This book is part of the Electric Eclectic brand of books and they are all shorter reads. Particularly good if you love reading but don’t have a lot of time.  It’s also a good way to find new authors.

Footprints in the Sand

A short novelette written exclusively for Electric Eclectic by Ian Welch

Screen Shot 2019-08-13 at 18.26.40Description

Scarlett has awoken in hospital, she has no memory of the accident, no recollection of events leading up to it. But she remembers Travis – or is he a mere figment of her imagination?

Makayla thinks so. Strange things, unexplainable happenings begin to torment Scarlett. Is she losing her mind? Others, including Makayla, suspect this is so. But her vision of Travis is unequivocal, he must be real, he is real. Is Scarlett the only one who believes this?


Supernatural collides with reality. Travis exists, Scarlett knows this. She has seen the evidence with her own eyes, she has felt his presence, she has held his hand. Why does everyone doubt her? If only she could remember the accident, and why would she be riding a horse like Makayla said? She hates horses.

Scarlett awakes from a coma with no memory of the accident. She has no recollection of events leading up to it, but she does remember Travis.

“He’s not real.” Everyone, including her best friend Makayla, is telling her. He’s just a hallucination, a figment of Scarlett’s imagination. But Scarlett knows different, she has felt his presence, she has seen the evidence. Something strange is happening, Scarlett can’t explain it, but she has seen with her own eyes, she knows Travis was with her on the beach. He is real, why can’t the others accept this?
