JENNIFER THOMAS- WOMAN IN HORROR!





http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A2FFC9D26O3WAS/ref=cm_cr_pr_auth_rev?ie=UTF8&sort_by=MostRecentReview



Jennifer Thomas is my Woman In Horror today! I'm going to tell you something. Jenn is not the easiest woman to dig material up on. Why? Because she does everything for everyone else and nothing for herself. A prime example is her picture above. It shows her to be a cheerful teddy reading a book. Okay, I guess that's a pretty good characterization of what Jennifer is all about. She is a book reviewer that even other book reviewers respect. And as for the authors whose books she reviews, they know she deeply cares about them as authors and people. She gives them honest reviews, telling it the way she sees it.

I have included a few of her hundreds of reviews below. A number of these are for books I have had the privilege of reading, so I know she gave honest reviews, and I completely agree with them. 

Jennifer is very loyal to her friends. On Facebook, you will see her everywhere, spreading the word, adding uplifting messages, and being cheerful to one and all. I have never seen where she has said an unkind word about anyone. In this business, that is not always easy to do. I cannot figure out why some authors think they walk on water because they make some sales, get great reviews, etc. Truth be told, I don't like a lot of their books. I just stay away from their chest thumping and silently laugh to myself. Of course, not every reader will like what I write either. I don't fret over it. Jennifer stays away from the fragmenting part of this as well. She prefers to spend her energy with authors and books she genuinely likes.

Readers have preferences. They wish to read stories falling into the genres, sub genres, and styles they prefer. That is why people like Jenn are so important. Once they find a reviewer they trust, they will seek them out and find out what the reviewer recommends. It's such an important part of publishing. With the big publishers going down the tubes - my opinion, I'm not forcing it on anyone - self-publishing and small Presses are becoming ever more prevalent. However, that means there are many more authors on Amazon and elsewhere. Supporters of these many great authors spread the word so writers are not sitting in a corner with their books, not receiving any notice.

Jenn is a friend of authors; a friend of readers; and a friend of the community of publishing. Jennifer Thomas is a Woman In Horror!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read with Memorable Characters, January 21, 2014
This is the third book in the Freaked Out Series by this author and it is wonderful characters and the story flow is amazing!

Lily Dean is just a small town girl who grew up with a not so normal life. The one thing she wants more than anything is to have a family who understands her and she wants to be safe. Once she joins the side show and meets Marie, Jason and Smudge she finds out that her dream of family and safety may come true.

The suspense of this book will keep you turning the page! The characters are easy to get to know and love. Great series and I can't wait for the next.

The Well

The Well
Price: $1.99


5.0 out of 5 stars Sarah Lewis, you're a hell of a lady., January 15, 2014
This review is from: The Well (Kindle Edition)
This is a novella, meaning it is a short read but it is well worth reading. I can promise you once you start this story you will not be able to put it down.

All Sara Lewis wants is for someone to fix her well. When one plumber advises that she just move from the farm where she lives, she finds that is the last thing she wants to do. What she does do is take matters into her own hands and goes down that well herself. She never expected to find a creature who threatens to tear her life apart.

Great read! Highly recommended for any horror or romantic suspense fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars He Loves The Good Girls, December 20, 2013
This review is from: Strings (Kindle Edition)
This novel got it's start as a short story which I enjoyed very much. The amount of horror that Allison M. Dickson was able to put into the story made me love it and then to find out that she extended that story into a novel excited me very much. She did more than give the characters more life and depth but she gave the horror a life of it's on as well.

There are 4 main characters in this novel and each has their own story within the pages. The fear, hate, pain and horror that leak from the pages and into your mind as you read this book will stay with you for a long time. There were times while reading this book that I was shocked by the things that I had just read and my emotions got the best of me and I had to set it aside for a few minutes to compose myself to be able to read on. By no means is this a bad thing. I love when a book gets to me in such a way and the flow and time line of this one was wonderful.

The life of a prostitute is not the life Nina had in mind when she left home but when her life took a spin for the worse she ended up at the Weeping Willow. The brothel it's self was a place of many horrors and broken dreams but when Nina is offered a way to pay her debt off and get out of the place of shame for good the opportunity is too good to say no too. She had witnessed with her own eyes what can happen to the girls who venture down the same road she is about to take but there is not only her freedom at stake but a cash load so big that she can't say no. When she finds out why the girls who were sent on this job before her ended up just shadows of themselves it is too late for her to turn back.

At times this novel can be very graphic and the psychological horror is intense at times and that is what made this a great horror read for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Curse, October 30, 2013
This review is from: Jar Baby (Kindle Edition)
What a great story! Lori R. Lopez spins a great tale of the Jar Baby.
When a man sells the one thing he is supposed to protect to save the lives of his wife and unborn child he know that he has enabled another to unleash hell and the vengeance of the demon on the world. He must stop the actions that he has allowed to be set in to motion.

All Alice wants to do is check out this comic store that she heard about. The sells man is a little on the creepy side but little does she know that life is about to throw her into an adventure she would never dream of.

Wonderful word flow and outstanding character development.

I'm not a werewolf fan so I put off reading this story for a long time and after reading it I'm sorry I did.

Joey never had an easy life, being mistreated and picked on and even ignored when he was in pain. Too bad they never got a chance to regret their actions.

The wound they thought was just from him being clumsy is so much more. When his world changes will the be around long enough to realize their ignorance is their downfall?

Read this awesome short and find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars You know what you have done., July 11, 2013

This is one gripping short story! From the beginning the characters have depth and are well developed, you are able to feel the fear and anger as it leaps from the pages.

Arthur thinks he can keep his life secret from his friends and co workers. He never thought he would be caught red handed by anyone for his evil deeds but then on one little elevator ride his life is turn upside down. You many be able to hide from the living but the devil will always know.
