I totally love mysteries, and the only that I love more than mysteries are thrillers, and this is a Thriller Festival all in one!!! The short stories will thrill you while they intrigue you with suspense and chills, and wonderment! I’m very pleased to welcome John Raab, CEO and Publisher of Suspense Magazine!
Suspense Magazine is an all digital magazine that was founded in 2007, and yes there’s an actual interview of John Raab, CEO himself and Publisher of the Suspense Magazine. They publish short stories, interviews, exclusive excerpts, articles and more. They have also in the past published alternate endings to very popular books, IE: Sara Paretsky’s book Critical Mass.
“Suspense Magazine is has fiction, wonderful intriguing artwork that you will stare at forever like me. It’s one of those, “how did they do that?” The interviews are absolutely the best! –Tess Gerritsen, International Bestselling Author.
Now you may thing the actual story is there, but it is not. What is there is…. well look if you wanted a book, but you didn’t know exactly what you wanted this is the magazine to get because it not only tells you about the book, story and the author, but it actually gives you a very good opinion about it. Here take this one for example:
Masters of Suspense ALLAN LEVERONE; ALLISON BRENNAN; C.J. BOX; STEVEN SAYLOR; and JEFFERY DEAVER.
Okay, now they’re going to tell you about a story from each and about them too.
I have to admit out of all the short wonderful stories and outlines in this magazine THE THRILL OF THE HAUNT By E.J. Copperman was my absolute favorite, and has me totally at wits end because I need to know what comes next. Oh my goodness the intrigue… the suspense is killingme. I’ve got to get this book. Here…
THE THRILL OF THE HAUNT By E.J. Copperman Copperman brings us another Haunted Guesthouse Mystery in the series. When I saw it come in, I snatched it up, eager to read more of Alison (live guesthouse owner), Paul, and Maxie’s (dead guesthouse residents) latest excursions. Just as “Chance of a Ghost” did, “The Thrill of the Haunt” entertained and kept me reading (even when I should have been working—please don’t tell my boss). Alison owns a guesthouse in which ghosts Paul and Maxie are stuck. Well, Paul is; Maxie finally found the ability to travel outside the house. Because Paul was a private investigator before he died, he has since enticed (coerced is more the word) Alison to aid him in investigating for those alive and well…dead. In “The Thrill of the Haunt,” Alison is hired by Helen Boffice to track her husband David’s moves. Helen believes David is cheating on her. No, she doesn’t want to divorce him; she wants to make sure he is tied to her for life. Strange reasoning, but I’d be announcing Spoiler Alert! if I said more. But that’s not enough. Alison, among trying to entertain her guests who came for the ‘spook shows’ with the ghosts, is forced to investigate a homeless man’s death. Running a haunted guesthouse and investigating crimes with two ghosts isn’t all Alison has to deal with. The one guy, Josh, who has been worthy of Alison’s desire for him to stick around is ready to bolt. Josh wants to know what Alison is keeping secret from him. Paul and Maxie want her to acknowledge to the world that they exist and go to lengthy extremes to accomplish this, and Allison’s supposed to be learning from her mother how to cook. This book is filled with wit, hysteria (maybe that was my hysterical laughter there), and pure entertainment. If you like a good ghostly paranormal that will make your eyes water from laughing, this one is it.

Now come on… isn’t that amazing? And the pictures are bigger than life and so graphic… so well they tell a story in themselves, and just… fabulous! Well, it goes on and on and so many stories… so many authors. I am definitely reading this magazine when I’m in need for a good story… how about you?
One more thing before I go I have to say that there are so many reviews of so many wonderful authors and their stories that I’d be writing a book here if I told you everyone, but just one more if you will. There was an author in there that intrigued me only because she use to me a lawyer and I am a retired paralegal. I wondered what story this lady would relate too, but alas… it was only the review of a most wonderful story where counsel had to protect her client.
With lines such as “Every book is a spellbinder”, how could you not stop and read. Me? I took notes for later. Reviews, ratings, new and old authors reviews, short stories and much, much more!
