Book Description

THE FRIGHT FACTORY -A cozy cabin on a lake. A few glasses of wine. Erotic conversation. What could go wrong?

Wesley and Robin Tate became empty-nesters in their early forties when their daughter left home for college.

Jesse Lawless is an indie film maker intent on producing the next great horror classic despite lacking the funds for actors, effects, or a script. He will stop at nothing to capture and upload his chilling masterpiece to satisfy his rabid internet fan base.

With a secluded resort cottage as the setting and the Tates as his cast, Lawless sets in motion a plan to produce the most realistic slasher flick ever.

The Fright Factory is Jesse's version of reality show and movie premise rolled into one. For the Tates, no acting ability is necessary as the terror becomes all too real. In each round, Jesse turns up the brutality in a game where killing your best friend may be the only way to survive.

Reviews:

"A Fast Paced Chiller That Won't Disappoint! Potter has done a fine job of introducing and developing characters I related to. He managed to make me care about their survival and kept me guessing to the final pages whether or not they would live or die in the final round of Jesse's sick "game." Fright Factory is definitely a chiller fast paced and at times graphic yet kept me turning pages from start to finish." 5 stars

"Terror has a new name, and it's Jesse Lawless. This was a very fast read. I hated to put it down once I started reading. I finished it in a day."

"I read The Fright Factory in two days during spare time. How...I couldn't put it down. If you like shows such as CSI and Criminal Minds, you will want to read this book."

"The Fright Factory touches our most primary emotion: fear, and our primitive response to it: fight or flight. It asks us to question how far we would go in order to save our loved ones. Could you kill a friend to save your spouse? Equal parts thriller and horror, The Fright Factory delivers the goods to those who enjoy fast paced suspense on the chilling side. A quick read that will keep you involved and entertained from beginning to end." Reader's Choice Book Reviews

Review

Potter opens his story with one hell of a hook!

The Fright Factory builds tension with every turn of the page, keeping the reader glued to the story. Character development is realistic and honest, and relationships are pushed to unimaginable limits. How far would you go to survive? This fast-paced, jaw-clenching, thrilling horror kept me reading well into the wee hours of the morning. If you crave excellent storytelling, vivid description and pulse pounding action, this is a must read. Author S.L. Coelho

I found this book to be highly entertaining, even though I am not a fan of the genre. Definitely worth a look, and I know I will be looking at more of this author's work. Author Doug Dandridge

Mr. Potter quickly grabs the reader's attention and doesn't turn loose. A couple and their friends find themselves beset by a sadistic couple. As the Horror and terror escalate I couldn't help wonder if anyone would make it out alive. This is the stuff of nightmares. Author Richard L. Weatherly

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick read January 21, 2012
By Irene
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given a complimentary copy for review.

It was a quick read that heads straight for the shock value, reminiscent of an Edward Lee novel or perhaps a Rob Zombie film where people are thrown together to be raped tortured and murdered.

I had issues with a few of the details where I would have to flip back a page to see if I had missed something. For example where one victim jumps from a boat and begins swimming to shore, even though as far as I could ascertain the boat had not yet left the shore.

The main character Wes is not particularly likable and I was not able to muster up much concern for whether or not he would live to the end of the story. The other characters and the relationships between them were not as well developed as I would have liked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graphic Horror April 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Fright Factory is more edgy and features far more death and mayhem than I typically read.

That said, Mr. Potter quickly grabs the reader's attention and doesn't turn loose. A couple and their friends find themselves beset by a sadistic couple. A madman humiliates and threatens death ultimately to all but one of the victims. When the story begins the protagonists; a restaurant owner and his wife have checked into a cabin in a remote part of British Colombia. Later they are joined by friends and relatives. The antagonist and his wife make a movie, distribute on the internet and brag about the number of hits it is receiving to the victims.

Certain aspects of the story help the reader to consider how much personal information they share in social media. It's something to think about.

As the Horror and terror escalate I couldn't help wonder if anyone would make it out alive. This is the stuff of nightmares. Read it at your own risk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fright Factory June 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fright Factory was a quick read but one packed full of the things you would expect from the likes of Ed Lee.

After the first few pages you are sucked into a story where the violence just does not let up. If this is your cup of tea, I highly recommend Fright Factory.

I am looking forward to what Mr. Potter does next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Would make a great movie July 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this story. The author does a good job with the pace and he sucks you in. It is violent and there are strong sex scenes but the story had me needing to know what was going to happen next. I didn't know if any of them were going to make it and the ending was not disappointing. I like the author's style and I will be checking out more stories by Mr. Potter. This type of horror may not be for everyone but I found it to be an entertaining read and I would love to see it as a movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Potter opens his story with one hell of a hook! April 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
William Potter opens his story with one hell of a hook. This author knows how to capture and hold a reader's attention. The book opens with a hot, erotic scene which leads the reader seamlessly back to how it all unfolded. The romantic weekend getaway the Tates had planned to rekindle their marriage, quickly turns into a vicious game of survival when Jesse, a psychopath who believes in his own omnipotence arrives on the scene. Intent on having his victims make him famous, he posts the brutal survivor games on the internet. An escalation in the online hits corresponds with an escalation in his twisted, homicidal competitions.
The Fright Factory builds tension with every turn of the page, keeping the reader glued to the story. Character development is realistic and honest, and relationships are pushed to unimaginable limits. How far would you go to survive? This fast-paced, jaw-clenching, thrilling horror kept me reading well into the wee hours of the morning. If you crave excellent storytelling, vivid description and pulse pounding action, this is a must read. Make no mistake, this adult novel with adult language and content is not a bedtime story, you will want to read it with the lights on and it is worth every second it keeps you awake!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a holiday cabin read! January 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been asked to review this book for KBR. I love thrillers, murder shows, Bones, CSI, Crime TV, I can't get enough of freaks, psychos and the like. This book totally quenched my thirst for all this and more...I would watch the film of this book in a heartbeat, it's THAT GOOD.

I dislike spoiler reviews, so I shall just set the scene....a married couple, in business together, kids grown up, seeking to spice things up, take a break, head for an isolated cabin for a bit of sexy time, bubbles and relaxation. They have their own secrets and issues within the marriage that soon become apparent, but after a few pages, an event happens to turn the book, spin it on it's axis, and send a shiver down your spine......

The book is well written and I adore the cover. Simple, but attention grabbing and like Ronseal, it does what it says on the tin!

I will say that this book is not for everyone, some sexual scenes and violent pages will not be what people like, but if you are not fainthearted and love a good chill with your read, then pick up this little gem now. Who knows, one day we might be seeing it on the big screen, spilling our popcorn and hiding behind our hands in terror.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Start off sexy but is a horror novel January 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Not sure how I received this book to review as horror is not one of my regular genres but here goes. This book starts off quite sexily and seems about 90 degrees opposite of what I would think of as a horror start- it lures you in with the start and you instinctively like the characters. Then there is a sudden plot twist and the horror is off and running. Was written in a style that kept you reading to see what depraved thing was going to happen next. Would have liked a little more character development of the friends and will always wonder why people can be so depraved. Not a long book so a good bedtime read- not so terrifying that you could not be alone in the house either.
