What does TWG think?

I am incredibly honoured to be part of such an influential blog tour. A collection of authors have come together with their rather unique, dark and exceptionally talented minds, to create the collection also known as ‘Dark Minds’. Published by BloodHoundBooks and featuring a treasure chest of talent, ‘Dark Minds’ is for charity. Every time a book is purchased, Sophie’s Appeal and Hospice UK will benefit. You can find out about the work that they do via the links above. Not only are the charities benefitting, you are too; in my opinion it is a win win situation. You have THE perfect excuse to have a ‘Dark Mind’.

Today I am one of two bloggers closing the tour; I have a review of just one of the short stories featured in this collection. It’s safe to say that I fangirled a little when I got told that the short story I will be given is by THE Betsy Reavley.
It’s called ‘By The Water’.

Seeing as it is a short story, this will be a short review otherwise I would just end up giving you spoilers.
Yes, ‘By The Water’ took me a matter of minutes to read, however, those few minutes packed a punch. A thrilling and gripping, headfunk of a short story! In those few minutes I had gasped, covered my mouth with my hand and go cold. If those aren’t signs of a phenomenal story then I don’t know what is.

Another outstanding piece written by the incredibly talented, Betsy Reavley. Lets just say…I WAS hungry before I read that story; I’m now not….

‘By The Water’ is just ONE of the stories featured in the Dark Minds collection. The complete charity collection is available to buy NOW from Amazon.

Big thanks to BloodHoundBooks and the team for having me involved in the tour. A fantastic cause.
