More About the Author

Kat Yares has been writing fiction her entire adult life. She is an author, screenwriter, indie movie maker and amateur photographer. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous print publications and online. She was first accepted into the Horror Writers Association in 2001 and remains a member today.

Her fiction is primarily in the horror/thriller genres. Unlike many, she writes horror not to gross out or startle her readers, but to make them think. Most of her stories are mind games and deal with mans (or woman's) inhumanity to man (or woman).

Her novella, Vengeance Is Mine, while horror, still strikes a cord for many readers as they can see correlations between the story and what is happening in today's political climate.

Her two novels, Beneath the Tor and The XIII, are both fantasy and thriller and as several readers have written to her, are bound to send her to Hades after she passes.
Visit her blog (www.katyares.com) to find out more about her and the various Internet retail outlets where her books can be found.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this little gem of a book about the first week of December 2009. Since that time, I have read all thirteen stories at least twice. I found myself thinking about the words Kat Yares has put down to paper. The overall theme and the stories themselves come back into my brain, which is not a bad thing. Whenever I can pick up a book, read those words, and it leaves a strong impression; I feel it is money and time extremely well spent. I inquired more on the works of Kat Yares and found she is soon to be releasing a Radio Style Play on Audio CD. You can bet I will be first in line to purchase that as well.

This collection of short stories was a great read from cover to cover. The twists in her stories kept me guessing, always a surprise to the last sentence.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Todd Hagopian VINE VOICE on September 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
These stories touch upon taboo topics that few authors are brave enough to address, but I am extremely glad this author decided to. If you are a fan of dark, evil stories, this book should ultimately find a home on your bedstand.

I was delighted by the stories I found in this book, each delivered in a short and sweet fashion that allowed me to read one each night just before bed. There was something very satisfying about a 100 page book that lasted me well over a week by reading a short story here and a short story there. And there are a few stories that I will surely reread again on those dark stormy nights that are just perfect for a book like this.

I hope you all enjoy!

Give this a try.

Journeys Into the Velvet Darkness: Revealed Evil" is a collection of short stories, exploring the darker side of human nature. They are Edgar Allen Poe with an O. Henry twist.

It's a pleasure to have bite-size stories. Each one kept me captivated until the end, wondering what was going to happen. Some endings I saw coming-- though never in quite the way I expected-- and some took me completely by surprise. Part of the fun of these stories was trying to guess, and the surprise always waiting at the end.

I'm not typically a reader of horror, but I think this book will appeal to a far greater audience than that label suggests. I highly recommend it
