Dark & Fluffy Volume II by Janet Stock - Book Blitz & Review




Dark & Fluffy: Volume II


Following on from Dark & Fluffy, this collection is a further nine short fiction pieces. The title Dark & Fluffy II, reflects the general styles of the stories/prose in the book. Some are a bit darker, and may be a bit uncomfortable to read, Death by Testing and The Broken Arrangement fall into this category. Others are happier, feel good pieces like The Disney Club. Whatever your preference, I'm sure you'll find something that will grab your attention.

My Review
Dark & Fluffy Volume II is a collection of nine short stories. 
The very first story, The Man Across the Street, has a very Rear Window-esque vibe to it, but with a slight twist. I wish it had been its own story, though, because I enjoyed it and imagined it could've been fleshed out and made into something really awesome.
The Broken Arrangement was another one that I wanted to see more detailed and fleshed out. It was creepy and strange, and it would definitely make for a good novel. 
 The other stories were just okay to me. They weren't bad, but they weren't really as enthralling as the two I mentioned above. The main issue I had with all of them was that they were a bit too short for my liking. But, overall, decent little pieces of fiction.
I'd rate Dark & Fluffy 3 stars.  


Author Bio
I am married with one teenage son and have always been a keen reader and writer since being young. I was born in Lancashire but have lived in Lincoln for over 30 years.
Several years ago I decided to take my writing seriously. I completed an OU course in creative writing and a Writers Bureau course. Initially I concentrated on short story writing, and when I turned fifty this year, I self-published my first book, Dark and Fluffy.
I love writing short stories, but my main goal is to have a novel published. Ten years ago, I started the first book of a trilogy of novels called The Little Servant (The Wait’s Son). I am still working on this, but now I have a serious intent to get this finished this year.
My favourite genre is medieval fiction, Bernard Cornwell is my favourite author. I also like to read Edward Rutherford, Stephen King, and Dean Koontz.
