book review(1)Dead by Morning by Kayla Krantz 3.5/5

13936690_1240147482703333_1895443041_nObsession is deadly. No one learns that better than Luna Ketz, a pessimistic high school senior. She wishes more than anything to graduate but things don’t always go as planned. Luna quickly finds herself trapped in a web of lies and murders, spun by the least suspected person in her hometown. It’s not long before she realizes she’s being targeted by the person she despises most in the world. When Luna figures out who is behind the killings, things make a turn for the bizarre when she is contacted by a friend she has not heard from in years. It is then Luna realizes she is very much in danger, but although she can avoid the killer in reality, she cannot avoid him in her dreams.

Name : Kayla Krantz

Age: 22

Where are you from

I’m a psychological horror/thriller writer originally from Detroit, Michigan. A few years back, I moved across the country to Texas where I currently live with my husband and son. I love to read and write. When I get free time, I like to go for walks in the woods. I’m a stay-at-home Mom so watching my son is my living. My favorite author is Stephen King—he’s actually the reason I began writing. I have a soft spot for Edgar Allen Poe and Shakespeare as well.

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?

My debut novel, Dead by Morning, was published as of May of this year. Book number two in the series, Alive at Sunset, is in editing and is expected to release sometime early next year. In the meantime, I’m currently working on Book Five, Comatose at Dusk.

Seeking Advanced Readers!

Hello, everyone!

So right now, Alive at Sunset is scheduled to release on November 15th. In the meantime, I’m seeking out people interested in reading and reviewing it so it has a good launch day. I’m offering free PDF copies to anyone interested!

 

Here’s the summary:

Revenge can become an obsession of its own. After her high school experience, Luna Ketz moved on. She’s in college, studying to be a doctor, and lives an hour away from her old home in Lima, Ohio–where the worst of her memories lie. Three years have passed since her friend Violet’s death and the thought of that day in the woods hasn’t left her mind once. Every week, she visits the hospital where Chance Welfrey remains in a coma. She tries to move on…wants to move on…until once again, she receives a phone call from Max Cazmea warning her that things may not be over just yet.

Chance, having recovered from his recent coma, shows up on her doorstep. He has found a way into Luna’s life that she cannot escape–he’s dating her roommate, Amanda Grey. Back in her life once more, Chance has a list, and everyone on it ends up dead. As things escalate, Luna finds herself in a dangerous game of cat and mouse that will take all of her wits to survive.

First Blog Post

Hi, everyone!

So, I’ve finally caved to peer pressure and created my own WordPress site.

For my first WordPress Blog, I’ll present to you my #3fictionalcharacters.

To anyone that doesn’t know what this challenge is, it’s to find three fictional characters that you feel best represent you.

  1. Veronica Sawyer

If you’ve never seen the 1988 film, Heathers, I encourage you to watch it. It’s a dark comedy about the dynamics of high school.

Now, I picked Veronica for a number of reasons.

The first, is that our sense of fashion is the same.

Second, even though she is part of the popular “clique” she doesn’t feel it’s right to bully the other people at the school and at the end of the film, she uses her popular status to bring the school together rather than further divide it.

Third, her snarky comments are just to die for!

2. Violet Harmon

If you’ve never heard of Violet, I’m going to direct you to watch American Horror Story (Murder House.) It’s a twisted show about a number of real life stories combined with myths.

The first way I’m similar to Violet is the low tolerance for bullshit to other people. When Violet is bullied on her first day at a new school, she doesn’t take it, she fights back.

Second, she struggles with self-harm and suicide which are issues I’ve grappled with myself.

3. Mandy

To anyone that’s ever seen me get angry, you know EXACTLY why Mandy is my third #3fictionalcharacters
