Book Review: Blood in a Box by Foster Medina

Title: Blood in a Box Author: Foster Medina Rating: 4/5 stars A super freaky read. Characterization was on point and the fetishes explored were beyond insane (I won't say what they are, but trust me it's twisted). Five people are stuck on an elevator for the weekend. Pretty straight forward right? Sounds familiar? Well this ...

With a New Name Comes a Free Ebook

I've adopted a pen name. Yeah I know my real name is pretty sweet but because of my day job, I was forced to change it in the efforts to detach the day time me (or night time because I work nights) from the dark writer me. Thanks to my family, friends and Facebook writer ...

Book Review: Twisted By Uvi Poznansky

Twisted  By Uvi Poznansky 3/5 stars This was a beautifully written piece of literary fiction. Dark? Not so much. Twisted is a collection of short stories that makes one ponder about their existence, choices, and life. Along with the stories comes a poem (I'm not into poetry so I don't feel comfortable reviewing it) and ...

Book Review: Awaken by Zach Bohannon

Awaken by Zach Bohannon 3.5/5 stars This was a decent short story. It was full of the things I love in my horror stories: action and gore. The MC awakes (haha the title) in a place where he didn’t fall asleep. Unware of what’s going on around him, he’s only sure of one thing: get ...

Kyla, what’s dark fiction?

"You write dark fiction? That's cool. What's that again?" I get this all the time. According to online dictionaries, dark fiction explores the heinous and taboo ideas of the 'human monster'. It's realistic; these people exist. We know them personally or see them on the news. But my definition includes that and a few other ...
