I know a lot of good authors, but one stands out in particular for ALMOST making me cry. No, I did not cry. My testosterone kicked in and I stopped that nonsense in its tracks. The weird thing is this guy’s a horror writer, and that’s the problem. It’s difficult for indies to sell horror novels because … well … it’s hard to put my finger on. Could be one needs a certain amount of “street cred” to do it. Readers snap up Stephen King novels quick as you please, because he’s a known quantity. Same with Dean Koontz, or John Saul, or Stephen King’s son because … dynasties are scary? Anyway, the book that nearly emasculated me is called “The Bad Box” by “Harvey Click.” Unlike many indies, he understands how to punctuate and tag dialog properly, as well a great many other unspeakable things. The Kindle version is not on sale because sometimes you just gotta pay $2.99 for a good book and not get it free. Here’s the link: https://amzn.to/2E29VQ8
