The Sandman is seventeen-year-old Nora’s closest friend and best-kept secret. He has to be, if she doesn’t want a one-way ticket back to the psychiatrist. It took her too long to learn not to mention the hooded figure in her dreams to her mother, who still watches Nora as if she’ll crack. So when Nora’s friends start mysteriously dying gruesome deaths in their sleep, she isn’t altogether surprised when the police direct their suspicion at her. The Sandman is the only one she can turn to for answers. But the truth might be more than she bargained for…

For the last five years, the Sandman has spent every night protecting Nora. When he hid the secret to the Nightmare Lord’s escape inside her dreams, he never expected to fall in love with her. Neither did he think his nemesis would find her so quickly, but there’s no mistaking his cruel handiwork. The Nightmare Lord is tired of playing by the rules and will do anything to release his deadly nightmares into the world, even if that means tormenting Nora until she breaks.

When the Nightmare Lord kidnaps Nora’s sister, Nora must enter enemy territory to save her. The Sandman is determined to help, but if Nora isn’t careful, she could lose even more than her family to the darkness.

WELCOME TO THE RUSHMORE INN

The bed and breakfast was hidden in the hills of West Virginia. Wary guests wondered how it could stay in business at such a creepy, remote location. Especially with its bizarre, presidential decor and eccentric proprietor.

ONCE YOU CHECK IN...

When the event hotel for the national Iron Woman triathlon accidentally overbooked, competitor Maria was forced to stay at the Rushmore. But after checking into her room, she quickly realized she wasn't alone. First her suitcase wasn't where she put it. Then her cell phone was moved. Finally, she heard an odd creaking under the bed. Confusion quickly turned to fear, and fear to hysteria when she discovered the front door was barred and the windows were bricked over. There was no way out.

...YOU'LL BE DYING TO LEAVE

One year later, four new female athletes have become guests of the Inn. Will they escape the horrors within its walls? Or will they join the many others who have died there, in ways too terrible to imagine?

SYNOPSIS:

Formed in London in 1976 by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, and Paul Simonon at the outset of that city’s punk rock boom, The Clash went on to outlast their peers and create some of the most influential albums in rock ’n’ roll—not just punk—even breaching the mainstream in 1982 and earning the title “The Only Band That Matters” along the way. In their eight-year career, The Clash offered six CBS Records studio releases, including one double and one triple LP, and increasingly melded influences ranging from rockabilly to ska, reggae, and even hip-hop into their sound.

Veteran music journalist Martin Popoff dissects each of the 103 tracks, including the circumstances that led to their creation, the recording processes, the historical contexts, and more. In addition, an introductory essay sets the scene for each album, while sidebar features explore influences on the band, album art, non-LP singles, the band’s staunch political stance, and song details, such as running time, instruments played, engineers, and studios.

I'm Back!

It's been a while huh? I haven't been active on this blog nor on my social media accounts since around August. Sorry about that. I've been going through a rather difficult time, and if you don't mind, I'd like to share....If you follow me on Twitter, I had posted at the start of August that I had my heartbroken, and was holding off reading anything of the romance variety. I was not expecting it and it hit hard, it also served as stepping stone for other relationships in my life to suffer. The plus was, at least I knew who was in my life for the wrong reasons and got away from those toxic people.

Late 2017 my sister got sick, and early 2018 we got her diagnosis that she about 3-6 months. I was devastated. She was my best friend, the one I leaned on, the one I cried to. While she made it past her 6 month mark, she slowed considerably, we had to do everything for her, and it was hard to watch her become a shell of her former self. Late in 2018 she passed away. Devastated surely isn't the right word, she was my world, and she was no longer here. I couldn't vent to her, cry to her, or run to tell her when something great happened. No more girls nights of pizza and movies. She was such a major part in my life, and then, she was gone. It's gotten better, but I still miss her. Some days are better than others, but it's extremely difficult.

Within a month of my sister's passing, I had my own health issues to tend to. It was rough, I was scared, and all I wanted was my sister. To hold her, to cry on her shoulder and have her reassure me that everything was going to turn out okay. Thankfully, it did. I'm slowly getting back to my normal self, and my treatments are working.

So to say the least, 2018 wasn't the best year for me, it obviously took an incredible toll on me emotionally and physically. During this time, I did something one should probably never do when they're hurting and depressed, and that's isolate myself. All I did was go to work, come home, eat, and sleep. I only went out when I had to, I pushed away the people who cared for me. I didn't have any joy in my life, and the last thing I wanted to do was hide behind my computer or phone screen pretending to be happy and writing reviews and using social media. 

I'm feeling better now. I'm not where I was, but after everything I've gone through, I imagine it's going to take some time. Rather than hide, I would like to start being more honest and let my feelings flow on social media, because I've learned that others are can be going through similar or even worse situations than myself. I'm going to start blogging again. In fact, I have a few reviews I'm currently working on and will post this week. I may not blog as often as I want, since my job has become more demanding these last three or so weeks. But I'll add reviews and extras as often as my schedule allows. Who knows, it may be often than I'm thinking. We'll just to wait and see.
