My thoughts: First of all the short introduction of the author is very interesting:
In 2004, I wrote a short story, "The Sleeping Girl," that turned into a novel (Wicked Lovely) that evolved into a series.
Well I think that is such a good basis for writing, also or especially if you don't plan more than a short story.

Well, it's a one page story, so I won't give any details of the content. Instead I will show you some pictures of the book, because it's so beautiful. You may think, what could be to say about a one page story? You can't say anything about the writing style but there is so much more to say as you belief. It's a story or rather nightmare you have to think about. Inevitably!

The story includes about 240 words but they will master you. You have to imagine the scene and that gives you the creeps. May be I have to think about it to got outside in the dark. :) I hope the following stories will be as good as this short foretaste.

BSM is a feature exclusively titled by Stephanie from Books Paradise. Mondays are definitely black. I thought what could I do to make it better. In the last time I consistently read short stroies, novellas or something along those lines and what lends itself better for reviewing those stories as a black monday? - Right, a black Monday!
