“Old Hollow” reviews are starting to roll in! April 14, 2018

Posted by ambrosestolliker in Book Reviews, News.

Book bloggers and readers have begun to write reviews of my new Civil War-era horror novella, Old Hollow, and I wanted to share some of them with you!

Lilyn G., founder of the Sci-Fi & Scary Blog, published her review of Old Hollow on April 5, and gave it four out of five rating! Here’s an excerpt of her review:

I love the cover of Old Hollow. It’s simple but also beautiful. Old Hollow is a fast, creepy read. The characters are interesting and mostly enjoyable. It’s not super-heavy on Civil War facts but it gives you enough to flavor it without making it exposition heavy. The settings are great and the descriptions are just enough.

I’d like to thank Lilyn for taking the time to read and review Old Hollow, and am glad she enjoyed it.

Also, Angela Crawford, who runs the Horror Maiden’s Book Review, gave the book “a solid four stars” and had this to say:

Old Hollow is a Civil War horror story that feels both familiar yet new. We’ve all heard tales of hidden towns or families that survived by luring in travelers that would meet with horrific deaths. From the legends of Sawney Bean’s cannibal clan to the unfortunately true story of the Bloody Benders these monsters lurk in our darkest nightmares. The town of Old Hollow fits right in with these haunting stories, but with a supernatural twist. Like a favorite campfire story that still sends delicious shivers down your back and makes the night feel eerie Old Hollow is a fun book to read.

Angela also included a short interview with me at the end of her review, so be sure to check it out to learn more about how the story of Old Hollow came to be.

Readers are also giving Old Hollow positive reviews on Amazon, for which I am eternally grateful! Thanks to everyone for reading and taking the time to share their thoughts on the book.

And just a quick reminder, I’ll be signing copies of Old Hollow from 1 p.m. PT – 5 p.m. PT on Sunday, April 15 at Half Price Books in Redmond and from 1 p.m. PT – 3 p.m. PT on Saturday, April 28 at Page 2 Books in Burien. Hope to see you there!
