Praise for Shallow Graves

“Forgotten is a tense and uncomfortable read. But it is also a damn fine one.”
Gingernuts of Horror

“It moved me to tears. This big guy who loves everything horror and you throw in a love story and he cries like a little girl. Don’t get me wrong, Grave Wax is more than a love story, after all, this is a Kelli Owen book, so you know there’s going to be a twist, and it’s a good one.”
~ Frank Errington, reviewer for Cemetery Dance

“Survivor’s Guilt is original, daring, gripping and even made me shed a tear.”
~ Frank Errington, reviewer for Horrible Book Reviews

“I love how twisted this novella was!”
Cat After Dark

“What stands out most in this book is the high level of tension Owen maintains throughout. There was never a point I was truly comfortable reading it, and there were times when I released a breath I didn’t realize I was holding.”
~ Steve Pattee, Horror Talk
