Seven Days of Electric Eclectic Novelettes – Day 7

Miriam's Hex

 

Miriam’s Hex

by Paul White

A dark tale of greed, selfishness and latent curses, laced with black humour, in a light-hearted way.
Although there could be lessons learnt from Miriam’s Hex, it is intended to be a simple, enjoyable tale of witchery and mischieve…or not.

Amazon

Review:

How often do we say things like “I hope you choke” or “I wish you were dead”? We don’t really mean it (most of the time)… this story may make you think twice about wishing someone ill.

In Miriam’s Hex, we meet a nagging wife, Miriam and her henpecked husband, Peter. Both were great characters, one to be hated and the other to sympathise with.

I enjoyed this dark and fast-paced tale in which Miriam’s off-hand comments have dire consequences for Peter, but is it coincidence or is it deliberate? You decide!

009052_7cbc048426f64e8ea87d5d46492c9494_mv2.pngI live in God’s county, otherwise known as Yorkshire, England.

I am actually a southern boy who slowly migrated northwards during his life, married a Yorkshire ‘lass’ and ended up staying.

I have been living in the ‘North’ for about thirty years now; in another thirty I should no longer be classed as a newcomer.

Whatever story I write about, I like to weave emotions, passions, sensitivities, perceptions and empathies into my writings. I feel adding the human element captures the heart and soul of those reading and inexorably draws people into my fictional worlds, so, the instant they look up from the page it takes a few moments of realisation before ‘the real world’ comes flooding back.

I am loving Electric Eclectic books because it gives me the opportunity to share some of my greatest novelette stories with you.

The Chaconne

 

The Chaconne

by Neil Douglas Newton

The dead don’t rest easy when injustice exists. When the restless spirit of his world-famous soprano mother struggles to expose the truth of her murder, Ted must open himself to her message. Someone still living knows the answer. Can Ted find the killer and bring peace to his mother’s spirit?

Amazon

 

Review:

Ted is being haunted by his mother who wants him to find her real killer.

This is a spooky tale from new-to-me author, Neil Douglas Newton.

It’s an interesting and compelling tale of an estranged family with an unexpected ending

 

Neil Douglas Newton:

3d68ce9b15a922252883f8296239507e.jpgBorn and raised in Bayside, New York, Neil Douglas Newton was telling stories almost as soon as he could talk. Along with his love of music, he developed a talent for writing prose and song lyrics.

A computer programmer by day he indulges his love of writing and making music at night and on weekends.

The Chaconne was born from his love of Bach as well as a homage to his late mother who was a classically trained coloratura. Binding these together, he created a ghost story with a twist.

In Seed Money, as with many of his works, Neil draws on his New York experience to create a tantalizing tale of good guys versus a bad girl.

His first book, The Railroad contains scenes that parallel his own experiences on 9/11 in the subway in New York.

Neil is a transplanted New Yorker who currently resides in East Tennessee with his wife, writer Elizabeth Horton-Newton, in a 100-year old haunted house.
