Have you read or reviewed any of the above books? links for reviews? thoughts? Which ones are you dying to read?

The post will include a very creepy snippet of his work with a few questions answered. It will be a great way to get a taste of his work and win a copy of Vacation. (I do believe it is printable being a PDF copy so you do not need an e reader to read it.)

Having started to read Cursed, I am finding it is quirkily hilarious and is moving into some dark territory – gotta love that. The interesting thing is that the main character thinks in lists… an intriguing perspective from the first person.

Please stay tuned and thanks for reading Layers of Thought.
