I got this great email this week about Escape Claws. Another surprise was this photo shared on Facebook from a different reader.
With my brain all full of Bitter Suites, I haven’t given Claws a thought in awhile. Nice to be reminded that I do have other books out there.
You can find Escape Claws on Amazon here… and here is the email that made my day.
Thanks Joe and Rachel!
I read your book ESCAPE CLAWS last night, and enjoyed it. I worked for years on the Discovery Channel series A HAUNTING, and I’m a sucker for true ghost stories.
Your writing reminded me of what it was like to be a child, afraid of the thing in the dark. In my own case, the thing in the dark remained hidden – but I was absolutely certain that it was there, lurking, night after night.
If I had ever actually heard or seen a ghost, I’m not sure if the experience would have been overwhelming or if it would have provided a kind of relief, confirming what I thought I already knew but couldn’t verify. Is dread the worst part of such experiences?
Then again, maybe I did hear or see something at some point, and have simply blocked it out. Memory is a tricky thing.
When I finished your book, I was left with the feeling that there’s still a lot of meat on the bones. I think ESCAPE CLAWS could be a trial run for a novel, opening the door to a much bigger story.
