Thriller Paranormal - Supernatural | Horror
When budding architect Audrey Lucas abandons her live-in
boyfriend for a flat in the Breviary, an architectural
landmark on Manhattanâ€™s Upper West Side, her newfound
freedom comes at a price. Her apartmentâ€™s gruesome history
includes a deranged mother who drowned her children in the
bathroomâ€™s claw-footed tub. Yet ghosts and the strange
habits of her eccentric fellow tenants of the building are
nothing compared to the horrors she unleashes within
herself when, after sleepwalking during torturous dreams,
she starts constructing a door in the middle of her living

Re: Audrey's Door
I disagree with the reader that wrote such vile comments to you. People that read and interpret literature with such views are the types that want censorship. I learned years ago to read with an open mind and that all books do not have to be a "happier ever after story. The good books challenge a reader's intellect and to inform. In school as a teen we studied "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. And novels by Sinclair Lewis. These were not plesant readings but showed social conditions as a result of opening the eyes to atrosities changes have taken place.

I agree. The woman who disliked your novel has no comprehension of the real world. I fear for her children, if any.

I can't believe that your "fan" would blame you for things in a work of fiction. Not that it doesn't happen every day, but it really was just a novel. Turn on the TV some time and really watch what happens in this world of ours.

Readers need to appreciate that it is the author who owns the characters, the plot--the whole story. We are able to share the author's vision through reading. But our "control" as readers is in selecting what we read, not in trying to sway an author's viewpoint. Good for you, Sarah, for confronting difficult issues in your own creative way.

Congrats on your daughter -children are precious. I read to escape the everyday life and sometimes bad things happen - Keep writing about what you want and we will keep reading you great stories.

We read what we enjoy! Keep at it!

Many people cringe reading about unpleasant subjects. I think it makes them feel vulnerable, yet glad it's not their own life. And then there's the others who can't find enough sensational news. You can not satisfy everyone even when fiction is too close to the truth.

When I was younger I loved true crime, horror movies, etc. Now at 51 my idea of a good book or movie is something with a happy ending. I've experienced life, now I want fantasy.

You know you've written well when someone gets that mad - it's just too real! Keep on writing and we'll keep on reading!

Your book sounds very good. I would love to read it.
(Lisa Garrett 6:35pm September 18, 2009)
My first thought was that the writing touched on something very personal & painful in your 'number one' fan's life. I on the other hand want to lose myself in fiction, warts & all. A happy childhood as given me that safety net.

Adults that try to over protect children
are doing them no favors. We don't
have to expose them to really awful
things, but they should be aware that
bad things do happen and be taught
how to protect themselves. Teens
tend to have a jaded view of things .
They know the world isn't perfect and
want to explore the possibilities. Too
many adults have a tendency to put
their head in the sand. Bad things
won't go away if we ignore them.

I know that life and the world aren't fair. I love my family and I hope they are prepared for what comes. I read for myself.
(Rosemary Krejsa 9:57pm September 18, 2009)
Oh this book sounds great!!!
(Martha Lawson 10:03pm September 18, 2009)
Well, I for one don't agree with the fan's hate mail. Since when did writing about real life and ALL that it entails become a bad thing? I love a great romance novel, yet when an author writes in a rape scene, many of the fans go crazy. It seems to also be a taboo subject, yet we know it happens everyday.
Congrats on your daughter and the new book.
(Mitzi Hinkey 4:08pm September 19, 2009)
Wonderful news. Congratulations!
(Tammy Garcia 10:26pm September 19, 2009)
I don't agree with hate mail if you don't have anything nice to say just don't say it. That goes for books, if they are to dark for you don't buy them!

From the time I was in junior high, my parents allowed me to read anything that interested me. For the most part, anything that had horror on the title edge of a paperback got my attention. I read the Other, Harvest Home, Carrie, the Exorcist, Dracula, Frankenstein and a whole slew of Dark Shadows related books. But not only that, I read the classics and future classics, such as the Godfather, Andromeda Strain, early Michener books, and many others. My parents did not censor my reading because, even as I put myself into another world, they knew I was anchored in real life. By keeping books, arts, movies, plays, and the likes from our children, we take something away from them that may never be recovered. My kids want to watch something or read something or listen to something, I let them. I am not letting them out at night till the sun comes up (that's for vampires, right?), because I am responsible there. Many evils exist in this world that are real, but the ones in the novels only exist in our minds.
