I've been trying to decide what I should actually do with this blog for sometime. So here's my idea... I got myself a Kindle last year and I've been just devouring books in 2012 and 2013, many of which are indie horror writers like myself, who I think have a special set of talents in that field.

One such author is Rebecca Besser, who I first took note of in an anthology by Norgus Press; one that I was also in, called "Strange Tales." She had this really oddball story in there and it totally drew me in. So when I saw that she had released a novel called "Nurse Blood," which included an ultra sexy nurse on the cover, presumably the titular character who will be putting the serious hurt on people, I couldn't resist.

"Nurse Blood" was unexpected for me. I expected the typical hack'n'slash gore that I have come to find a standard in the horror genre, particularly with the indie markets. But it was much more than that. There was very little graphic violence and gore in this book, and it worked really well with that. "Nurse Blood" is more of a thriller to me, almost... about a group of organ harvesters, one of of whom is Sonya (AKA Nurse Blood). They backstab, plot, and plan behind each other's back. They use sex, power, and threats to achieve their ends. Nurse Blood herself is at the center of the tale, sort of the epicenter of all this human maneuvering.

Their hope is to make the Big Score, to harvest an entire family. Great premise, and it delivered in spades! It was one of those I-Wish-I-Had-Come-Up-With-That-Plot books that we read once in awhile. Organ harvesting is a great stage for bits of comedy, a bit of the old nasty gore, and plenty of room for nail-biting.

I won't give away much more, but you'll have to read it for yourself.

Rebeccas Besser is a fantastic author and I can't wait to read more from her!! Check out Nurse Blood on Amazon:
