Sweetwater Black: A Short Horror Story (Book 1) by Hannah Herrera


Sweetwater Black


A sweet, little piece of horror at your fingertips. Short, but perfect in it’s own way. The only thing I need to add is, where is the next story for me to read?

Riptides by Hannah Herrera




This would be perfect to read sitting under an umbrella, with a drink in hand and relaxing on the beach. Riptides had me in a different world, as if I was reading a mermaid’s tale in the form of poetry. And being caught in the waves of her magic was only the beginning. Here is a small piece of it:

When life
the unimaginable
at you and you’re
in an unbreakable

Don’t struggle
against it.

It’s scary as
but if you
stay calm,
you’ll be able
to break
the vicious cycle,
and swim towards
better things
meant for you.

The Hostage Bloom by Hannah Herrera


The Hostage Bloom


The beautiful thing about The Hostage Bloom, is that despite what dark corner you were placed in to die, you will live.  Abuse, of any kind, is hard to heal from because of the long lasting effects that are birthed from it.  You can end up losing yourself in a relationship because of the way it makes you feel.  The truth is, a lot of the times we are holding on to a beautiful idea of what we thought the relationship was or how it should be.  Also, it can be one-sided, in which you feel a certain type of way meanwhile the other is just coasting through the emotions.  It is very hard to believe you can survive a crushing blow that abuse can cause, but in due time you can.  I felt I can relate to a few of these poems that talked to certain types of abuse, because it is not always physical, but it shares a mental, psychological aspect as well.  You end up learning just how strong you really are after abuse and while you will never be the same as you were before, you will become a stronger version that sheds all that darkness away.  And though it will leave a scar, the scar reminds you that you’re a survivor.  And YOU ARE going to be okay.  In fact, more than okay!  Some of my favorites are: The Cat & Mouse game, Taking a sip really means a damn gulp, Shatter, Cheated, The Hostage Bloom, A Diamond in the rough and The Jigsaw Puzzle.
