The delightful Shalini from Digital Reads Blog Tours is busy organising a blog tour for Death Among Us: An Anthology of Murder Mystery Short Stories. By the way, there is now a paperback release for this amazing collection of short stories. It’s available on Amazon.
It’s only 0.99 on pre-order for the Kindle until release day on July 7, 2019.
The blog tour will run from October 27 to October 31, 2019. Yes, Halloween, and how appropriate for a collection of scary chilling stories.
Advance Praise for Death Among Us
My favorite book genre is mysteries. With so many wonderful authors and series, it’s often difficult to decide what to read next, especially when you’re looking to expand your horizons with something new.That’s often why I’ll turn to an anthology of short stories, as collections allow you to sample a dozen or so writers who hold a vast array of experiences and styles. This month, I took a chance on ‘Death Among Us.’ In this fantastic collection, readers are exposed to 10 authors. What’s even better is that the stories are generally connected to one another, so it’s almost like reading a mini novella several times over.
In addition to these two clever authors [Bentley and Cheadle], I found many new writers I plan to follow. All of the stories were strong, none left me bored or confused. It’s a vibrant collection of twisty horrors, delicious death plots,and witty dialog among killers, cops, and victims. There are even a few lines of paranormal / fantasy / science-fiction being crossed, enough to make us afraid to enter a dark room in the future.
Between those chills, and the crazy over-arching theme of what happens to both good and bad children in this book, it’s a prime candidate for anyone who wants to be frightened or read about something over-the-top devilish and evil.
This is definitely one to keep in mind for pushing the envelope with creativity, complexity, and dark drama. That ‘side serving of revenge’ we often hear about… is the prime motivating factor in so many of these stories… and who doesn’t like to see someone get their just desserts?
