Book #Review – Stroke of Fear by Deborah Bowman

Reviews (2)

Stroke of Fear is a short novella, the first of The Denny Ryder series. The genre of this book is paranormal, psychic, combined with a crime mystery. This combination of mystery keeps this book fast paced with engaging writing from the author Deborah Bowman. Below is my review on Amazon.

 Five Stars

Denny Ryder has the gift of clairvoyance, but is it really a gift or a curse? Her vivid dreams come to her as ominous visions about a missing little boy. Tormented by her visions, she remains questioning herself whether they are just dreams or real premonitions. Later her dreams are validated when she hooks up with Detective Collins to offer her visions in search for the missing boy.
The author takes us into a distorted world of Denny’s visions with this fast-paced, page turning novella. As we hope to solve the mystery of the crime along with Denny, the end still leaves us wondering about her dreams about the serial killer – imagined or another premonition. This series is definitely one to keep our imaginations curious and wanting to read more.”

Here is the blurb for this book:

THIS BOOK IS AGE APPROPIATE FOR “TWEENS”, TEENS, YOUNG ADULTS AND ADULTS INTERESTED IN THE PARANORMAL.
STROKE OF FEAR! ( Denny Ryder Paranormal Crime Series) starts off with a bang! Denise Ryder is in the midst of a gruesome car accident. She’s thrown against the door, pitched to the floor, twisted upside-down, falling, as she claws her way out of a shattered window. She hears loud crashes, hysterical screams, screeching metal, and the voices of two dear friends. Her stomach heaves, and she’s choking, gagging, can’t breathe! Blood is everywhere.
10 YEARS LATER: Pleasant memories of her childhood. She grins at the antics of the two sisters, different as night and day. Denny is just waking up from a soothing, happy dream. She’s had “dreams come true” since she was a child. Sounds like a fairy tale, right? Wrong! It’s her nightmares that come to life! Yet, she does everything in her power to deny the images.
Denny becomes embroiled in a missing child investigation. When a dream shows her where the boy is, she won’t let herself believe it. A twist of fate reveals that the dream “could” be true. She’s scared, but relieved that she can take action based on fact. She meets Detective Ted Collins, an investigator who doesn’t scoff at the paranormal. The two of them use facts, clues, and intuitive visions to piece the case together. Will they be able to save Jeremy?
A new piece of evidence pulls Denny into another horrific dream. She fears she’s had an out-of-body experience where she meets the psychopathic serial killer who feeds on the blood of innocent children. Denny isn’t even sure whether she believes in astral projection or not, but somehow she becomes caught between the dreamscape and reality. She knows she can’t be both places at the same time. Where does she go from here, and what about Jeremy?

The beach is calm and relaxing. Had to come home to really rest. I certainly didn’t want to miss anything!

I finished the manuscript for Stroke of Innocence! Wrote at midnight till the wee hours of the morning … didn’t want to lose a moment of a long overdue vacation with hubby.

eBook should be available this weekend or Monday, June 1st.

Definitely want to write a blog on verb usage in 3rd person past tense. I never realized how easy it is to mix them up until I started questioning myself. What was past tense to tell the story and what was present tense in the character’s mind? I use the traditional designation of Italics for present-tense thoughts. I find George R.R. Martin the master of clarity in this regard … is it him or his editor? Either way, it leaves no room for confusion, whether you like his writing style and genre or not.

More to come on verb tenses after the novella is complete. I will share some tricks-of-the-trade in an upcoming blog for all writers: fiction or nonfiction; business; promotional; personal; all genres.

Keep writing, drawing, generating fine and photo art. Express yourself and your luscious creativity !

STROKE OF INNOCENCE!

PROLOGUE

WOUNDS…

They say that time heals all wounds, but rather…

Just who in the world are they?

And, of course, what does it matter…

What they do or what they say?

Unless it’s the monster who preys on innocence…

What child will he capture and kill today?

As Denny Ryder heals from the Stroke of Fear!

Her dreams torment her in an agonizing way.

Wounds of the soul at the Stroke of Midnight!

Will never heal in the Stroke of Silence!

The horror of reality from second sight

Will drain away the Stroke of Innocence!
