Another razor-sharp, super-intuitive read from this amazing author. Secrets Room is every person’s worst nightmare, horror like you’ve never read before. Whatever unresolved issues you may have in your life, fix them, before it’s too late. Because, once in the room, it’ll be almost impossible to face your fears whilst fighting the demons.
If you want dark, you’ll get dark. If you want shocking, you’ll get that, too. If you want incredible insight into human nature, you can do no better than read Kim Faulks’ books. I consider myself an avid reader, averaging several titles a week, and I can honestly say I haven’t read a more untamed, free writing style in many a year.
I read this book as an ARC, and after all this time, it’s still vivid and fresh in my mind. I still have chills when I think of Morgan observing the strangers she’s locked in with, all of which have touched hers or each other’s lives in subtle but very real ways.
The characters are something else! Who would have thought there was so much sadness behind rich-girl Rachel, so much disturbed, unprincipled and misplaced loyalty behind Coulton. Carmen, Dee, Glib – all these characters are so real, so troubled and so afraid, you’ll be thanking your lucky stars you are not them.
The ending is a surprise, and it fits the horror theme of the story perfectly. Nail-biting and impossible to tear your eyes away from the page (and for those of us who are born softies, there is an alternative ending, too). I kept wishing for Slade and Morgan’s love to be given another chance. In a way, they get that. In many others, everyone gets what they deserve.
For the second time, the only time this has happened so far, Kim Faulks receives the Life Changing Read Award from me.

And it’s live! You’ll have figured by now that I haven’t just abandoned this blog for no reason. I’m not making excuses for abandoning the blog, but there was a reason!
My experimental project, a first in so many ways for me, NOT JULIET is live and for a limited period on a promotional price of only 99c.
Here are the blurb, cover and links.
Riella Smith, an unconventional Romany Princess, travels to Tuscany on the trail of her father’s challenger, to delay him and prevent unnecessary bloodshed and humiliation. What she expects is trouble from a fearsome rival. But life is rarely that easy.
The trouble she finds is of a different kind. Soon, she faces the toughest decision of her life – again – though it should really be a no-brainer. All she has to do is choose between her people and a myth.
After all, there’s no such thing as love at first sight.
And some of the tags, to give you an idea of what’s within the pages: action, romance, romantic suspense, happily ever after, erotic, princess, Italy, England, Rome, Tuscany, Florence, sunshine, Romany, young first love, sweet, love at first sight, Jacuzzi, pool, lost love, heartbreak, helicopter crash, gangmaster, betrayal, escape, strong heroine, attractive hero, shooting, arson, weapons, second chance, reunion, battle, gypsy, king, conflict, tension.
The good news is that writing it was so enjoyable, I’ve decided to create a collection, and if you look at the Addicted To Love Romance Collection page, you can have a sneak peek at the next three titles (which I will somehow have to wrestle out this year. Having met one deadline, I am hopeful).
If you’d like a complimentary copy in exchange for a review, I’m sure that could be arranged. Let me know in a comment below.
I’ve poked my head out of my writing cave for a few minutes, having finished work on my Valentine’s Day release, Not Juliet. Yes, it’s done!
Ok, back to business.
I was seeking reassurance, I suppose, that my work would compete on the same level with all the others out there, and that quality will win out, no matter the method of publication, and no matter of who gets to read and review it. Because I won’t pay for reviews. That would be silly.
And then I find this article on Indies Unlimited. Equal treatment?
Yeah, right! Isn’t it enough that traditional publishers have done everything in their power to crumble and fall off their pedestals – in my view, at least? Reviewers are doing that, too? Good names, recognized names? Is there anyone left you can trust?
Not if they ask for your money, it seems.
