Rewind

Imagine yesterday. 

Hit your mind's rewind button. You woke up fumbling for the shrieking alarm clock and you drank orange juice after brushing your teeth. You sniffed the clothes you wore two days before, deciding that you could wear them again. Rush hour was the usual, frustration and smog and middle fingers. An unfamiliar Mercedes was in your parking space. Your boss chewed you out in front of everyone for being late, even though that five-car pile-up was certainly beyond your control. Instead of taking a lunch break, you choked down a dry turkey sandwich while scrolling through endless work emails. You were unfairly scapegoated during the afternoon meeting by that backstabbing asshole Hendersen, never mind that he was the one that provided the wrong figures for the report in the first place. You were asked to stay late, even though you had plans, and the boss wasn't really asking because you knew that if you said no he would remember it the next time that people needed to be laid off.  By the time you cleared everything out of your inbox, it was dark outside.

You wake up, knowing by the brightness of the street lights that it's only just past midnight. You wonder how long you've been asleep. You feel itchy. When you go to scratch, you find that you are still fully clothed, and that your clothes are covered with a sickening-feeling crust. The smell of stale copper fills your nostrils. It's on your face and in your hair and under your nails. You don't know what happened. You don't want to know what happened. You have to know. You have to know.

Imagine yesterday.

reads4fun: I like how the characters are in this story, Death seems sporadic and fun, while Dimitri seems to be more focused but they will argue over the littlest things.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

Carolyn Hahn-Re: I really liked this story! The writing was well done, and the plot was suspenseful. I couldn't stop reading chapter after chapter, on the edge of my seat! The characters were well developed, and true to form. Thank you so much for this wonderful read.

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

Brie Lundy: I have never read a story like this before. It was riveting. It kept me captive. Once I started it I couldn't stop until it was finished. 10/10. I need more of this book. They need to find the Wizard!!

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Shayleen Seiberg: See, I wasn't sure if I'd like this story. But it turned out extremely well. It kept me interested the whole entire time. The only thing wrong with it is there are multiple grammatical errors. Not punctuation wise, but spelling wise and word placement wise. But overall, I loved the book.
