Day Gazing – A Review

Day Gazing, by Carla Herrera.

I loved these intense short stories. In several of them, beautifully sketched characters find themselves drawn, thrown, or simply awakened into inexplicably weird situations. I especially liked the pair called ‘Freedom/Stairs’, depicting protagonists choosing opposite coping strategies (‘Stairs’, especially, is a greatly empathic story). ‘The Protector’ is another sharp tale of unexpected and exciting new possibilities, while ‘Bunker Test’ and ‘White Room’ are in her wheelhouse of personal apocalypse. Highly recommended.

Note: I found this while perusing new free ebooks using a new Android app, SmashwordsAccess, developed by UnleashYourAdventure, after which I rushed to purchase her other book available on Smashwords, Pink Eye.

You can find great Indie writers, if you look.
