Creepy Ride With Bubba

Blood Alley A Short Story of Horror

Blood Alley A Short Story of Horror

I had to smile when I read this wonderful review by GJ Lentz. In fact it made me smile so much I had to read it twice. He may get his wish – Bubba might just show up again someplace else. Those that know me  know that I have a very twisted mind and an even more twisted sense of writing. So GJ it could happen my friend it could happen. At the present Blood Alley is only available on Kindle and Nook but that doesn’t mean that you can’t read it – you can download it to any of your electronic devices and enjoy it over and over and over again.

Yvonne takes a classical horror/paranormal concept and ads a creepy-fun twist for any fan of the genre, any reader for that matter. The author truly pulls you into the pages and onto the dark road with Trucker Bubba as his complicated life takes a twisty and freaky turn (for better or worse you’ll have to decide!). Only 4 out of 5 because I was left wanting more! Really, the only problem I have now is which of her other books to read next!?

Blood Alley Not Your Typical Sunday Drive

Blood Alley A Short Story

Blood Alley A Short Story

Do you just love a great short story? Do you enjoy being scared to death by things that go bump in the night?  Do you enjoy taking those long drives down dark roads wondering what will jump out of the darkness? Have you thought that you have seen things in the middle of the road late at night when you are tired and have been driving for hours? Well you will want to read Blood Alley. It is just a short read a little short story to tingle your nerves- to make you wonder what lives in the darkness. To make you lock your doors as you travel – As in real life things are not always what they seem. Just when we think we have all the answers the questions change.

This little jewel is  currently only found on kindle and nook. But you can download it to any of your electronic devices including your iphone. It is something that one can read while waiting for a doctor’s appointment, a dentist appointment – while sitting in the car line to pick up the kids at school or even in an airport waiting on a plane.

Blood Alley while listed as horror is not filled with much gore. I don’t think that overkill lends itself to a good read. I allow the reader to immerse themselves into the story and visualize their own pictures. Blood Alley is written in the manner of the old style horror movie. It leaves the reader the ability to imagine- which is so much more fun than just laying it all out on the page.

So hop over to kindle and download this little story. I think you will enjoy it. I even made it easy for you. The link is below.

Some Days It Is Worth it to Chew off the Restraints

Blood Alley A Short Story of Horror

Some days it does pay to chew off the restraints. I found  this lovely five star review on Barnes and Noble for my wicked little short story Blood Alley. Again, no need to say anymore. The reviewer did it for me. Thank you so much  Mr or Ms Watkins. And thank you for having the guts to post your name.

 ¿Hair Raising ¿ Bloodthirsty ¿ Entertainment!

‘Blood Alley’ by Yvonne Mason is a terrifying short story that is unforgettable! The author skillfully weaves a mixture of horror and suspense. Her depiction of the characters and their surroundings are quite chilling. I thought I knew a little about what was in store for me getting into this book, as I have read Mason’s previous work – I was not disappointed! She originates the plot of the story using familiar surroundings and a cast of colorful characters. However, beware – after reading, you will have a second thought before stopping at a truck stop diner, taking an unfamiliar route to get to your destination, and even the howling of your four-legged friend will bring on a new meaning!

You definitely want to read all of Yvonne Mason’s chilling stories.

Five Star Review for My Short Story Blood Alley On Kindle and Nook

I received this review last night. Ashley Fontainne  is an indie author with a couple of books under her belt one being Zero Balance. This book will knock your socks off.

 

Blood Alley A Short Story of Horror

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the Dog!,May 14, 2012
This review is from: Blood Alley (A Short Story) (Kindle Edition)

This is the second book that I have had the privilege to read by the multi-talented Yvonne Mason. The first was a true crime novel that downright frightened me because it was based upon a real, breathing monster.

This second story, while purely fiction, lives up to the thrills and packs a quick pace that makes Yvonne an impeccably gifted story-teller.

A dark road…a lonely, tired soul not paying attention…and things that “growl” in the night. Combine them all together and you get this fantastic short, Blood Alley.

Sometimes, the hero and the rewarding justice they seek isn’t bestowed upon the one that you think! This is a wicked vignette that will leave you dizzy at the end from the twisted ending! Way to go Yvonne!

Another testimony on My Work Blood Alley

 

Blood Alley A Short Story of Horror

 

 

This comment was added to my blog about the five star review I received – on Blood Alley my short story that is only currently available on Nook and Kindle. Ms Luna puts me in the case catagory as Clive Barker which I take as an honor. If you haven’t yet read this nice little horror piece you should, if you don’t have a kindle or nook no problem you can download it as a pdf to your computer. It is only 2.99 and quite a good read.

Felicita Luna commented on Two Words “Errie Scary” – Yep Another five Star Review for Blood Alley Only On Kindle

Yvonne Mason’s horror books will be placed right next to my other favorite horror story writer Clive Barker.

Two Words “Errie Scary” – Yep Another five Star Review for Blood Alley Only On Kindle

Blood Alley

 

Blood Alley my short story that can only be found on Kindle and Nook has received yet another five star review. IF you are a horror buff and love being scared then this little jewel is right up your alley. Stargazer thank you so much for the review.

I have just two words to describe this short Kindle story..
EERIE SCARY..
oh, two more..
HOLY MOLY!!!
I do not like night driving to begin but no one will ever again catch me venturing behind the wheel after sundown.

I love this!!!
Horror buff that I am, I really shivered and said brrrrrrrrrrrr as I imagined the scenario.
Coupled with this is the fact that my husband was a long haul trucker for many years and made
his living for us as a career driver, there was no way I could pass up the read no matter how
chilling it was~

If You Missed the Show Last Night…….

<a“” width=”199″ height=”300″ />

Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason

Well kiddies, if you missed the show last night you missed an hour of side splitting, belly laughing, tear running fun. I was a guest on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ashleyfontainne/2012/03/11/yvonne-mason. We talked and laughed about many things including the fact that her co-host Bennet Pomerantz was stuck between to true southern girls who gave him no slack. In between laughing and talking with him, I did manage to discuss my books and why I write.

Yes, we also talked about my hats and the flying monkeys that are always appearing on my facebook page and why they are so important to me.

Go listen to the show, learn a bit about me and why I do what I do. I am not your average author. I don’t stick to just one genre. The voices in my head won’t let me. I learned a long time ago to just let them do their thing. Sometimes it gets extremely crowded in there. But such as it is with authors. I love what I do and no I don’t expect to get rich- but in the big picture I am already richer beyond my wildest dreams.

When Fates Collide

We talked about the conception of this little jewel and her sister.

When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

Both of these books should be illegal because they are so funny. This book comes with a disclaimer that we are not responsible for soiled clothing as you are reading it.

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

This is the reason I am successful. This book is the heart and soul of our family. He has never quit even though he could. So we never quit.

Blood Alley

This little short story is only available right now on kindle and nook. It is well worth the read. It will make you think twice about traveling late at night alone on a two lane black top.

A Voice From the Grave

My historical fiction is available in book form, kindle, kindle audible, nook and in an mp3 CD format. If you enjoy reading about history of the civil war you will love this book.

Tangled Minds

Every teen should read this book. There are life’s lessons as well as entertainment between the pages. Actions always create and equal or opposite reaction which will without fail create a consequence!

The Last Rites

My second true crime. She was raped and executed and left in a remote area. To add insult to injury no one cared enough to claim her body. She was buried by the county in a pauper’s grave. Read her story and remember her death and honor her life.

Silent Scream A True Crime

Florida’s first serial killer Gerard Schaefer tortured and executed between 9-34 young and young women. This is their story.

Brilliant Insanity

Brilliant Insanity the title says it all. A serial killer has five days to live and he is allowed to tell his story. The story is told in first person and will keep you up nights. No it is not a true crime. But it could have happened.

Check out the show and my books. They are all on Amazon, Lulu, Kindle, Nook, itunes, ebooks, and my online bookstore if you would like a signed copy at http://thebookattic.ecrater.com

Go listen to the show laugh till you cry – then go order my books – it will make your day.

Did You Ever Drive Down a Lonely Two Lane Blacktop Late at Night and Wonder……?

Blood Alley

Did you ever ride down a lonely  two lane black top late at night? Just you and the road and the sound of the tires as they rolled against the blacktop. Did you play games in your head about what was round the bend or over the next hill? Did you see things in the road that weren’t there? Did you hear things in the  wind that weren’t there? Did you wonder what you would do if you saw someone in the middle of the road who looked like they might need assistance but there was no vehichle to be found? Did you ever think you saw the glow of eyes peering at you from unseen places?

If the answer to all these questions is “yes”, then you might just want to read how Bubba handled this very situation on a dark, lonely very late night on State Hwy 27 known as Blood Alley. You see Bubba is a veteran over the road wheel handler who is afraid of nothing. He has traveled many miles behind the wheel of his rig and he witnessed many things. He is a beer bellied, hard drinking, tobacco chewing, womanizer who has been there and done that.

That is until….. one night as he travels Blood Alley. The only thing on his mind as he listens to his favorite country music station which is playing cheating songs and drinking songs is the fact that he is running behind, because his latest ex-wife has just thrown him out for of all things cheating on her. Bubba tried to explain that the woman meant nothing to him, but the wife wasn’t buying it anymore. She just didn’t understand that “he had needs” on the road.

So here he is running behind because he had to find a place to store what few belongings she gave him via the yard, cussing women in general and her in particular when he sees it. As the jake brakes squeal, the smoke bellows from the tires and Bubba grips the wheel to keep the rig from jackknifing, he does’t relize that from this moment on, he will never have to worry about his needs again.

Blood Alley a wonderful – scary- short story http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Alley-Short-Story-ebook/dp/B006Z10FFS/ref=sr_1_11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1329831122&sr=1-11 that is sure to make you rethink those lonely dark, two lane blacktops late at night,
