This week’s book under spotlight is Candy Coated Madness by Jeff Strand.

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

Horror/comedy master Jeff Strand returns with a collection of twenty-six gleefully macabre tales!

A cheerful snack mascot who snaps under the pressure. The nightmarish effects of the most depressing holiday song of all time. A virtual reality environment that allows you to enact your most depraved fantasies…sort of. A cheerful snack mascot who snaps under the pressure. Giant mutant cockroaches doing battle with zombies in the Old West. An unnerving discovery in the Book of Revelations. The true secret of silent comedian Buster Keaton’s success. Plus a Halloween curse, a lot of psychopaths, and much more!

Often hilarious, frequently gruesome, and sometimes just flat-out wrong to the point where laughing at them presents a moral quandary, Candy Coated Madness is Strand at his demented best!

Lost and Lonely by Brian James Freeman – Spotlight

Being a book blogger, my to-be-read pile has way more books than I can ever finish reading. To top it, I keep adding more books to my “Want to Read” list in Goodreads. While reading and/or reviewing every book in my TBR pile will remain a fantasy, the least I can do is to pen a spotlight post for such books, bring them to your attention, and tempt you to add them to your “Want to Read” List.

Starting today, every week, I plan to feature a book in my Spotlight series. This may be an upcoming release or a backlist title.

This week’s book under spotlight is Lost and Lonely by Brian James Freeman.

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

This new collection by Brian James Freeman features characters who are haunted by horrors they think are out of their control, but perhaps the source of their greatest terrors is closer to home than they ever feared possible.

In “Losing Everything Defines You,” a bestselling author’s family mysteriously vanished three months ago, yet if they’re really missing, why is he hearing footsteps in the hallway outside his bedroom every night?

Patty knows that everyone makes mistakes in life and when it comes to “Loving Roger,” she wants to fix the errors of her ways and make everything right again.

William Carver and his family fled the colonies to escape a monster stalking their community, but the western plains might not be the safe haven they had hoped for once they hear “How The Wind Lies.”

When Melissa was a little girl, her father told her that all children were like “Perfect Little Snowflakes,” each was different and unique in conception, but you never knew where they would land once they hit the ground.

And finally, a mother doesn’t remember when the coldness began to fester inside her and now she’s terrified for her baby as she suffers from “The Plague of Sadness.”
