Book Review: Badfish
Book Review: BadfishSunday, March 13, 2016 at 11:08AM Badfish. Sue Rovens. CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, October 28, 2015, Trade Paperback and Kindle, 225 pages.

Badfish, the debut novel by Sue Rovens, is a darkly written, extraordinary book, with elements of horror and suspense covered in a fine skin of black comedy. To say this story is twisted is an understatement.
A plague of bad luck has befallen the town of Badfish, and the Finchon Motel is patient zero. The Finchon, owned and operated by Karl Demetris, is overflowing with transients, drug users, and all-around misfits. While the misleading advertising may draw in the occasional tourist, the fortunate ones see the writing on the wall. Karl, ever the entrepreneur, has developed a lucrative side business peddling a drug that gives its users a toxic high. The cascading event…

Track Nine...progress being made.

Greetings fellow horror/suspense peeps!

Just a quick note to let you know that I've been working on my second novel, Track Nine. From its original concept, created during a NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November of 2014, I am currently working on the first revision.

Basically, what that means is, I am pretty much re-writing the entire book, taking the good ideas and scenarios from the mad rush to "finish a book in a month". I suspect, like with Badfish, this revision will take the longest. I'm a little over halfway through this process now.

Track Nine (which will be the official title), is the story of a couple on their honeymoon. They are returning from Rain, Germany and headed to Bloomington, Illinois, but have managed to become stranded and locked in a non-functioning train station in Rain. (by way of misinterpreting a map).

The train station is haunted, which is only the beginning of their problems.



Needless to say, without the entire story written…
