True stories with a twist!

At the beginning it reminded me of  a Robin Cook  medical thriller similar to “The Andromeda Strain.” But before long I was shaking as much as I would be reading a Stephen King book, like “The Shining.” What an accomplishment!

Carrie Rubin is a blogger whose work I have been following for quite a while. The Write Transition, her blog’s name, is a humor blog. With her quick wit I expected a humorous book, but Wow: was I surprised. As a physician, humorist, scary book writer and mom, she covers all the bases. I wholeheartedly recommend her book to anyone who wants a gripping, imaginative and frightening story, read “The Seneca Scourge.”

 

THE SENECA SCOURGE, A MEDICAL THRILLER

  1. Yes, ma’am 🙂 I appreciate the advice. I won’t push myself.

    Hey I was wondering if you saw my mailing address?

  2. Aw, I’m happy to be back, too 🙂 Mr. Puddlethorpe was there for me all the time. How nice of you to send him over! I’m mending well. Just that I can’t walk around or sit in a place for long. But docs say this is only temporary.

    Yeah, I intend to continue with my WIP. I can’t wait.

    • He’s casual: I’m sure you can call him Percy. I’m glad you’re feeling a little better; don’t do anything before your body tells you it’s alright.You don’t need a reversal of the healing process!

      • Yes, ma’am 🙂 I appreciate the advice. I won’t push myself.

        Hey I was wondering if you saw my mailing address?

  3. Good thing you are promoting a fellow blogger as well as her book. I bet it will worth reading considering your review. It’s rare to find a writer who combines a lot of human aspects in one tale. Carrie is in a class of her own.

    I’d like to read her book.

    Hey, thanks for all the support and get-well messages. You’re a friend, indeed 😉

    • Uzo, I am so glad to see you back to writing after that long illness. I guess Percy Puddlethorpe really did help you, as I described how he helped me in my book.
      Will you be continuing your scary stories soon?

  4. I recently got a gift card to Amazon and am planning to use it to download many of the good books recommended to my kindle! Thanks!

  5. Carrie’s book is definitely a good recommendation. The story grabs you and doesn’t let go. I was up into the wee hours of the night to finish it. Her “twist” took me by surprise. I love that you compared your reaction to reading her book to the same reaction you have when reading Stephen King. 🙂

  6. Darn you! Yet another one to put on my reading list. 🙂

  7. Thanks so much for the review. Very much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the book!

  8. thank you, it looks terrifying! c
