A YouTube book reviewer was nice enough to take her time to give an honest review of The Box in the Spare Room. It's seems like the story is a hit! God-willing it gets to be a film/television program someday. I really enjoyed writing it and I hope you check it out when you can. Take care and keep enjoying your new year. Keep focusing on your new year's resolution.
A blog called "A Journey with Books" recently post a review of House Trap. Besides reading the actual review at that site you should also check it out in general: http://debasishray19.blogspot.in/ . Thanks again Debasish Ray Mohapatra for the post.
WARNING:- This review has a major spoiler and reveal the twist of House Trap.
The story started with a cool and chill night. Everyone was preparing themselves for the upcoming Christmas. A little boy, just 10 years old, named Nicolas was staring at the sky and imagining about those gifts he’d be going to get for this Christmas. But all of a sudden mishap happened in his house that night. Nicolas found both of his parents murdered inside the house.
After 30 years, the same scenario happened again. But this time it was about Rachel who went to Alicia’s house as a tutor and had to spend a night there which was against her decision. Alicia’s father was the inventor of house trap and a well renowned person for his invention. But that night unfortunately, Alicia’s parents were absent inside the house. Two intruders, one of them was Jay Alicia’s friend and another one was Scott entered to house for some money. They both killed Alicia and tried to kill Rachel and Alicia’s brother Nathan and little sister Amy.
But the story looked most interesting, when you will get to know that Alicia’s father was no other than Nicolas, a person who went through these incidents at his tender age and invented house trap for the safety purpose. Now his invention worked as curse for his family. As the house trap was activated no one was able to come outside of that house including murderers and innocent kids. And after finishing the story I am sure that the whole drama was with full of suspense and actions and also thrilled you.
For me: What I liked about this story was finally Rachel learnt a lesson about life, freedom and realized that family & friends are much more important than just a good college and a degree.
The story was well plotted just like sequences of picture frames and it was smooth and a well thrilled story. I enjoyed it.
Don't forget to keep checking this blog for any further news on the sequel to House Trap titled Fiery Trap. Take care and I hope you come here again soon:)
It's been awhile seen i've blog but am glad to be here. So far i've been busy writing my second novel. I still won't reveal the title yet but all i can say is that it's a different take in the zombie genre. I think it's very unique and those that do or don't love Zombie genre would appreciate this new take on it so i can't wait to release it. So far i've finished the first draft( the most fun part of writing according to me) and now i'm in the editing phase. I'm making sure that the story makes sense (for instance: a certain character's hair didn't turn from blond in one chapter to black in another chapter). I'm making sure that everything makes sense like if the plot flows or whether some scenes makes sense or needs to go.
So that's why i've not blogged lately and of course the daily chores of life and promoting my new novel, House Trap. I have to say this but i'm stunned that strangers i don't know or never met in my life read the novel and loved it. I've been getting really great reviews and it just reassured me that i should be doing this, that i shouldn't waste this God-given talent, or that i shoudn't doubt myself about whether i'm wasting my time writing while i could've done something else. I love my family and i respect their good review when they read my book but i also felt that they might be saying this to make me feel better, that they didn't want to hurt my feeling. At times i thought it wasn't as good as they are making it out to be. But now that i've read stranger's reviews of House Trap, am like "Yes, my hard work paid off," it just reassured me that maybe i should continue doing this and i will because House Trap is just a taste of better stories to come.
I hope more people get to order it though because it really is a great story and not just because my family says so. You could read a few of the review at goodreads which is at the right corner of this blog website to see what other people got to say about the book. For those that brought it, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks for taking your precious time that you could 've use to do something else or even read another book but instead you read mine. I thank you deeply. Hope you all have a great day and Happy Reading.
I sent House Trap to be review at a blog called Book Briefs(http://bookbriefs.blogspot.com/2011/05/review-house-trap.html) and here is what the critic, her name is Michelle A., had to say about it:
"This book was a great thriller. I really liked the concept of it and it certainly was pretty scary. It is a short read but it was jam packed with action and suspense. It definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat or pretty much the whole story. It starts out with a past murder, and then shifts into present day- where all the action begins.
What I liked most about this story was that it was so fast paced. Since it was a thriller/suspense story, I appreciated that there were no slow parts. And because of this, I never got bored, everything was moving in this book. It was a short, fast read- but a ton of stuff is packed into the 120 pages. I had to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. I also appreciate that there were some deaths. Not that I enjoy the death of characters, or anything, but it helps a story seem more realistic. If you have a book and there are killers running around (especially in a single house) and every single person in the
story survives; it is not very likely. So I enjoyed the realistic element. It also kept me on my toe, wondering if my favorite characters would make it out.
I also really liked the way that "house trap" was designed. the details of everything were fantastic. This book is well written and flows really nicely. I could picture the house in my mind and see the kids all running from room to room.
This book is a great, fast read for someone that is looking for a suspense/thriller. 4/5 Gavels
I've finished editing house trap and am glad that is done and overwith. I still haven't set a release date yet, i don't think i could make the April deadline. I tried the best i could to get it finished and released by April but life usual chores got in the way . But i can happily say that it is ready. Now all i need are some people who would be interested in reading my book and reviewing it. I'm sending advance copies to book bloggers or curious readers. Just send me an email stating that you would love to read it and would send your review on it. My novella would be send to you in a pdf. file. Anyways you could get my contact information( i.e. email address) at the contact section of my blog or leave a comment stating that you're interested and write your email address . Hope you are interested in reading it and please post your honest opinion on what you think about the book. If the book stinks like poo or it's a boring book then please inform this to me and state your reasons. Bad reviews wouldn't hurt my feelings even if i work hard on writing it, in fact it would make me become a better writer. So please, please state your honest opinion whether it's good, bad, or in-between. Again I would love for someone to review my book and i would be happy to send a pdf. file to you. If you know someone that might be interested then tell he or she about it or send this posting to the individual.
If you have any further questions please e-mail me or comment it. Hope your day is going well, Ciao!
