The Doll- Review

Do you like campfire horror stories?  Yeah, me to.  In The Doll, J.C. Martin crafts a story in the campfire horror story tradition.  I could just imagine bringing a little Mexican Doll along and stashing it in someone's tent before telling the story.

This is the story of a woman and her child that come upon relics of an obscure religion.  This story ultimately warns you to beware which superstitions you would write off as silly.

The pace on this story is lightening fast and can be easily read in a half an hour.  I think it is accessible to anyone with the reading level to read it.  While it is creepy, it isn't too creepy for kids to enjoy.  As I stated before, it would make a great campfire tale.    You can pick this story up on Amazon for only 99¢.  J.C. Martin is also holding a giveaway on her blog with the possible prize of a kindle touch.

What are you waiting for, get on over to Amazon and pick up a copy, enter her give away, and support an up and coming writer.  Don't forget to sign up for mine own give away as well.  
Salvadora says buy the story.

I read this short story today and it had a lot of potential. I think the story feel short overall though and wasn't creepy enough for my tastes.
