Looking for Arc Reviewers

Physical copies of Combustion have been for sale on Amazon, Lulu, and other online retailers for a couple of months now. I decided for the ebook version, I’d enroll the book in Kindle Unlimited. I think that will be my best chance of reaching new readers.

The book is available for preorder now, BUT wait! Before you buy it, I decided to create an arc through booksprout.

I desperately need some reviews, particularly on amazon. If you want a free ebook of Combustion, I’m giving away 20 arcs right now. Just click here!

It is a horror novel. There is a child protagonist, but it is very much a book for adults.


Rachel lives in constant fear that she will burst into flames. She can feel the heat building in her gut. She keeps buckets of water under the bed. She keeps them to fend off the flames that her body may create.

Autocombustophobia. That’s what they say she has.

No one will believe Rachel when she explains that she spontaneously combusted once before. That’s why her body is covered in burns.

Rachel’s mother is the only one who knows what really happened to her. All she said was that it was an accident, before she disappeared leaving Rachel to live with her grandparents.

When Rachel becomes reunited with her estranged mother, she struggles to uncover the truth behind her injuries. As Rachel spends time with the mother she has never known, she is thrown into a strange world of paranormal obsession, spells, and sage burning.

Long buried family secrets are revealed and Rachel’s fear of Spontaneous Human Combustion becomes unmanageable.

There are some terrifying truths to uncover and a man on fire. He stands burning at the foot of her bed.

If that premise grabs you, I hope you’ll consider becoming an arc reviewer! You get a free ebook and I get a review. It’s win-win. And I have always been an advocate of honest reader reactions, so if you end up leaving a negative review, no, I’m not going to be upset or shun you. Negative reviews are inevitable and I would never get butthurt over that.

That’s it! I’d love it if some of my fellow bloggers might consider snagging an arc of my book!

And while I have your attention, consider chilling in my new discord! There are already ten of us in there and it’s starting to become a real party 🙂 https://discord.gg/aPMZV7


    1. Oh, I don’t want you to read it if you think it will upset you. I mean, it’s not conventional horror. There’s no gore. In fact, most of the action in the story is internal. But then there is some tough stuff in the final chapters.
      I will give one sort of spoiler: I never kill kids or animals in my books.
      But don’t feel bad if you don’t think you can read it. There are some books that I can’t handle. Like one author I’m interviewing for this blog right now, I LOVED her historical fiction. But then she wrote a horror novel that was full of gore and torture porn and as much as I wanted to support her, I couldn’t read it. I can’t handle torture or gore at all.

      1. For me, it’s not so much gore I can’t handle, but kids getting: rejected, humiliated, disappointed, or otherwise crushed. Especially when they are younger kids and obviously don’t have the perspective or inner strength to endure it. Like I can read Stephen King except when he gets into child abuse territory …

      2. Yeah, my book is probably too much for you then. There’s a lot of trauma of psychological anguish and the main character is only 10.
        But hey, I’m working on a fluffy rom-com right now. Maybe in a year or two, you can read that arc if you’re up for it 🙂
