Amazon Blurb:
Pull up a rocking chair and sit a spell. Soak in
these twelve tales of Southern Gothic horror:
 
Sinister shopkeepers whose goods hold the
highest price, a woman’s search for her mother drags her into the binding
embrace of a monster, a witchdoctor’s young niece tells him a life-altering
secret, an investigator who knows how to keep a 100% confession rate….
 
These are stories where the setting itself
becomes a character—fog laced cemeteries, sulfur rich salt marshes—places
housing creatures that defy understanding and where the grotesque and macabre
are celebrated.
 
The stories are rich in flavor and clever in
metaphor, the horrors completely surreal or—far more unnerving—all too
possible. She brings a refreshing perspective to the table that paranormal
lovers are sure to enjoy. 
 
—B.D. Bruns, author of The Gothic Shift
My next release is a horror/fantasy mashup,
although its more horror than anything. In my research, I discovered The
Graveyard Shift Sisters
, a site where Eden Royce is contributes to and the site highlights women of color in
horror and science fiction.   I’m so
happy I have I found the site because I was then offered a
review copy of Spook Lights, and let me tell ya, it’s exactly what I needed in order to feel how great and descriptive horror should
be.  The language was so visceral that I felt like I was a living,
breathing participant in each story. Spook Lights was exactly what I needed to
bring my story to the next level. Enough about me, here is my review.
Short Review
Do I recommend it: Yes!
Diversity: 5
Characters: 5
Story: 5
My Favorite Stories
“9 Mystery Rose”- This one ended so
cleverly that I had to go back and reread the beginning. Clever.  Topic: Graveyards, ghouls, and no good
spouses.
“Hand of Glory”- The title says it
all.
“Hag Ride” – Again, the beauty is in the title.
“Homegoing” – Any woman with a child will love and hate this story. It explores the question: How will you handle
your child if he turned bad?
“Since Hatchet was a Hammer” – Great story about domestic abuse
“The Choking Kind” – The last story in the book and the story Eden referenced in her interview. Completely original, I had no idea where this story was going, And that’s true of all of the stories.
