Reviews of the Sweet Dreams anthology and my story R.I.P.

The first couple of reviews for the Sweet Dreams anthology have been published on Amazon, both of which mention my story R.I.P.

 

 

 

 

A collection of unique tales by some very talented authors that will leave your mind wondering at possibilities. My favorites tales were the waking hour and R.I.P, which one’s will be your favorites I wonder.

 

This one is Chastity H. King’s Review of ‘Sweet Dreams’


For her horror anthology ‘Sweet Dreams’, J. L. Lane has selected some of the best short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. Although brought together under a common theme, these tidbits of terror are as diverse as the authors who wrote them. Whether you are looking for some new stories from authors you know and love, or new ones to fall in love with, your search is over. This anthology has something for anyone who loves horror fiction.

A great novel is like meeting someone, going for drinks, then dinner, learning about them over the course of a few months, maybe longer, and hoping it will turn out the way you want. A great short story is meeting someone, skipping the drinks, sharing a passionate kiss in some dark corner and walking away with no time for expectations, just excitement and pure adrenaline. These pages pull you into that corner, kiss you deep, and leave you wanting more.

This book snagged me from the start with Kitty Kane’s Souldrop: A town of terror. This is a story about a journalist whos’ gruesome actions lead her down a road to her unexpected destiny. A little farther along I was delighted to find a wonderfully morbid story by J. L. Lane herself. ‘Waking Hour’ is a nightmare of such intensity that you find yourself questioning which is the dream and which is reality. I was thrown from one dreamland to the next, delving deeper as I went and loving every minute of it. I mean everyone likes to be scared sometimes, right? If you do like getting scared and are wondering if this book is enough to do it, just read this passage from G.H. Finn’s ‘R.I.P.’: I’ll open you up don’t be afraid, just feel the kiss of the edge of my blade.

So, get your copy of ‘Sweet Dreams’, lock your doors, check all the lights are in proper working order, and be ready to go without sleep for the night
