The Dread Owba Coo-Coo, by M.C. Norris, came to my attention in a rather unusual manner. I had just posted the second in a series of posts I'm doing on my website about why authors should make at least minimum wage. M.C. popped up and added to the discussion on Facebook after Andrea Smith made some comments there. To make a long story short, Andrea went on to mention how great an author M.C. is. So, I do what I always do and read the sample of the book she considers to be the scariest. The Dread Owba Coo-Coo. I requested to be M.C.'s friend and got into his head a bit. And the result is this post.
This is Andrea's book review:
5.0 out of 5 stars A definite must-read for those who like historical horror,
November 16, 2014
This review is from: The Dread Owba Coo-Coo (Kindle Edition)
Tonight's nightmares will be courtesy of M.C. Norris and this book. If you want graphic historical horror on the high seas, you don't want to miss reading this book. The author has brought forth images that cannot be ignored. He has taken the descriptions of a slave ship to new levels. It is a book that I would need to read more than once to uncover the layers of reference and symbolism contained within is pages.

Andrea is 100% correct with what she says. And so are the other reviewers below. If you enjoy going to another place in time for your horror, and I mean spine-tingling horror, M.C. Norris is your go to guy! How he is able to grab not only the period of time and add in realistic sensual truisms, but the man can flat out hit the language of that day! I'm a pretty good author, I believe, but I would never tackle what M.C does. He is brilliant.
Among M.C.'s books posted below, you will notice that you can pre-order God Of The Dead, which will be out next month. M.C. is a busy guy!
Yes, there is also a Holiday book for your enjoyment. Krengel & The Krampusz. I was just going through this and was flabbergasted at the historical influences once again and the fascinating tale coming forth.
And, as if that's not enough, Deep Devotion is on sale for .99 for a couple more days. Don't miss out on this super bargain.
Well, my friends, I must thank Andrea Smith for introducing me to a fantastic author. Thank you.
I know there will be many people wanting to hit that buy button for M.C.'s great novels.
