This review is from: Blood Alley (A Short Story) (Kindle Edition)
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!?

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.

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!

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,
