Author Spotlight/Rocky Rochford Indie Writer

I bring to you today the very talented Indie Author Rocky Rochford. He is currently celebrating his newest release  Wait and Bleed. See it and buy it here

This collection of related shorts is written well, and if read on a dark stormy night will indeed give you the chills, make you lock the doors, check under the beds and in the closets, as well as turn on every light in the house while you arm yourself to the teeth with whatever you have available. Chillingly written. Meet Jack the likable psychotic. Yes, I said likable psychotic. Mr Rochford has created a bad psychotic character that somehow you find yourself liking, despite his despicable tendencies. The emotions I feel and felt for this character reminded me very much of how I felt about the  character Dexter , a once very popular series on premium TV. Well done Rocky. Very superb writing skills. Wait and Bleed

 

Here’s a bit of who my spotlight author is in his own words:

I am a Scuba Diving, Photo taking, Adventure Seeking, Sword Collecting, Writer & Marine Conservationist. I’m a handful of years into my twenties, but after living life on the road, going town to town before finally settling down, I’ve gained great insight into the world and her workings. From Day 1 I have been a Writer and a Writer I shall forever remain.
I like to consider myself to be a Student of Everything, and yet a Master of Nothing, who does not choose what he writes, but writes what chooses him, be it fantasy, crime, poetry, philosophy or even adventure. After all life is a journey we all get to experience, just like a good book.
Read more on his Amazon page. Link is above. This is an author you want to follow. I am not surprised to see that Wait and Bleed is quickly climbing the ranks in horror.
As well as Wait and Bleed  Mr. Rochford has written many other stories for your reading pleasures. His writing style is fluid and he really has a knack of getting his characters to creep around in the readers head …long after they have put the book down.
Hers more of his titles:

Deep Water Novels:

Phoenix Rises

London Calling


Rise of the Elohim Chronicles:

Synopsis:

How can you fight to the death, when you’ve given up on life?

A thought provoking and compelling dystopian world that will change the way you view justice…

A man fights for life—and redemption—in D. M. Cain’s riveting re-released novel, The Phoenix Project.

Britain has descended into chaos as violence and terrorist attacks seethe across this once-peaceful country. Outraged by the steady stream of lawlessness, citizens demand a harsher penal system, and the Phoenix Project is born.

In prisons across the country, inmates fight to the death in a weekly bloodbath while the nation cheers them on.

Raven Kennedy, a prisoner who has never forgiven himself for his unspeakable crime, struggles against his own guilt and self-loathing. But even as the real war wages on within himself, Raven is forced to battle some of the prison’s most ruthless killing machines. Can he survive long enough to unravel the anger and regret that shackle him—and one day find the forgiveness he seeks?

_______________________________________________

‘The Phoenix Project by D.M. Cain is a superbly written debut, soaked in tension and intrigue,’ Jack Croxall, author of the ‘Tethers’ trilogy.

An interesting fact about The Phoenix Project: The horrifying ‘dark room’ in The Phoenix Project (a pitch-black sensory deprivation cell) was inspired by D.M. Cain’s visit to the Terror Haza in Budapest—a museum dedicated to the fascistic and communistic regimes that operated from the building. In the cellar of the Terror Haza are the old cells used to imprison and torture inmates. D.M. crawled inside a very low cell and shut the door, casting herself into total darkness. It was terrifying and claustrophobic, and she only lasted five minutes in there!
