If I were to pick a single statement that sums up this tale I would have to use the quote from BSG: Razor ‘You make your decisions, and in the end you are those decisions’. I definitely recommend this tale for anyone who is looking for a thought provoking story, one that leaves you guessing right till the end and wanting more!
Georgina Kamsika is a writer for all of us Supernatural Thriller readers out there who like a touch of romantic undertone, heart-pounding action, toe curling realism, with a side of paranormal to finish it all off.
The story takes us on a descent into evil, wrapped in the coils of the supernatural. Powerful descriptive writing, aligned with flawed characters who develop and change in response to the magic and brutality around them,create an unforgettable read. Not for the faint-hearted!
I would recommend this to any fan of ‘gritty’ or somewhat ‘twisted’ fantasy.
If you like Supernatural stories, magic and mythology you will love this book.
I absolutely loved the book. It was dark and gritty and I only have one criticism. It was too short and I wanted to keep reading. The next one needs to be twice as long!
Alice’s daily life features love, lust and death. This is a fast-passed supernatural novel that you’ll struggle to put down.
Alice Murphy: Part of the ‘Sun Stopped Shining’ blog tour – Marie Harbon interviews Alice, the lead character of ‘The Sulphur Diaries’.
What is your mission, or your dreams/ambitions in the book?
The Sulphur Diaries opens with me living in this tiny village in the back end of Yorkshire. It’s surrounded by beautiful countryside, everyone lives long healthy lives, but me? I can’t wait to get out. Why? Well, the bit I haven’t mentioned, the bit we’re not supposed to tell outsiders, is that our village is built on an entrance to Hell, with all the perks (and the problems) that goes along with it.
Blood, Corpses and Hell: An interview by the Horror author Dicey Grenor.
Since your story involves blood and hell, how would you feel if a reader said they found it too scary or too gory to read? Would you be flattered, pleased, insulted, upset, etc.? Why?
Georgina: One of my earliest memories is of watching an old Dracula film. I loved it, I loved being scared and enjoyed watching and reading scarier things as I grew older. However I know a lot of people don’t really go for horror or being scared, so if it’s too scary for some people, I can live with that. I think knowing that my writing has affected someone, be it good or bad, is enough.
Interview: A fantastic, in depth interview by Robert Coles, a fellow author.
Rob: “Georgina, I love the title of your new novel, The Sulphur Diaries. Can you tell us what the story is about?”
Georgina: “Hi Rob, Thanks for the call. The Sulphur Diaries is the story of a young girl, Alice, who is trying to come to terms with her place in the tiny Yorkshire village she grew up in. This is all the more difficult because the village is situated on a gate to hell, and Alice has the rare ability to commune with demons. It all goes downhill when she finds out her boyfriend is in line for the annual human sacrifice.”
