Review for Lauren's Nightmare

My review

This short story asks what is a dream and what is real? Really this is an enjoyable, thought provoking tale that may make you wonder.

Karl Jones does it again! May 25, 2012
5* By Lady Castus
Format:Kindle Edition
Once again, Karl Jones has kept me on the edge of my seat with his latest story, Lauren's Nightmare. The tale has all the creepy elements of an unfolding horror story that would make the late Alfred Hitchcock proud. The imagery of the vampires and the terror felt by the main character had me biting my finger nails. It's easy to get pulled into Lauren's mind and experience her fright, revulsion and anger.

Jones takes his time with the story, luring you in slowly by not giving up too much information too quickly but the story moves at a fast enough pace to make it a page turner.

*****mild spoiler*****

I can't wait for the next installment of the series as Lauren becomes accustomed to her new "family" and "lifestyle". I see Jones clearly on the rise to becoming a master of horror.

Description: Stark white walls and a medicinal scent lingering in the air...Lauren knows where she is, but has no idea how she got there, because the things she remembers just aren't possible. There are no such thing as vampires....

The Sea Witch Update

I'm presently writing the story, quite the story it is also. Can you imagine that something happens that makes you realize that you are a total asshole. That's what kicks off the story, that kind of a wake up event happens in the main characters life. Because of one event he totally changes the direction of his life from then on.

I'm really getting into this story and I'm probably about one quarter of the way into it right now. I really hope everyone really enjoys it as much as I've had in writing it.

What I'm working on these days.

Today, I finished The Box and I started The Sea Witch. I've been so looking forward to starting on The Sea Witch for a while now. There will be a man going through a major change in his life, a bit of romance.

The Sea Witch

The romance will happen for sure. When you get two people together on a sailboat in the middle of the Caribbean and what do you think is going to happen? There will be that and so much more.

The Box

The Box is a novella length story that could probably be turned into a Hallmark Channel movie at some point, parts of it anyways. That story took some turns that I would have never expected, I don't think that that reads it will either. Not quite sure when I'll come out with it but it will probably be after I finish writing The Sea Witch. It might be getting a name change also :-)

Our Anniversary Date

On the 23rd, I will be having my 7th wedding anniversary and I'm looking forward to many more.

Brandy really is the light of my life, I'm so glad that she decided to come along on the ride with me.

I think it is important to have someone in your life, someone that you can communicate well with, someone that you can share all of your life with. Just remember always that it's a two way street on that, they are expecting the same thing from you. That is the key to having a great marriage, the ability to share with one another the ups and downs, the little and the big events that occur. Together, you build memories and a life; you support one another through everything.

At the same time you are not a half of whole. You are a major part of the whole. The life that the two of you have chosen together.

Distant reaches

This distance seems so far
When I want to touch you
Wish upon falling stars
Trying to make it through
My thoughts are always there
Walking with you each day
A vision I’m aware
Within my mind to stay
Reaching out my spirit
The distance becomes short
Want to do every bit
Helping you reach the port
Passages of time extend
Seems I sometimes can’t wait
As the road seems to wend
Towards eventual fate
