Rave reviews for Evil Eye: A Slasher Story

Editorial Reviews


"The author paints a flawless image, a virtual film reel unravels...the sort of wordsmith wizardry spawned of veteran years of writing...Even the most cynical or jaded of readers won't possibly be able to predict the manner in which each is slaughtered. A sense of vicarious, you could be next is accentuated and beckons even further unnerved reading." -
"Tense, quick-read horror...Evil Eye would appeal to fans of the slasher genre, with creative gory kills...there are many moments of clever character development and analysis."
- Reedsy

"A suspenseful horror story for classic horror fans everywhere...This one isn't for the faint of heart, so this serves as fair warning...The character development is obvious and intentional, and you don't get that in a lot of horror...Taylor confidently and expertly wraps a horror story within a survival story...It will become one of your horror favorites, and Taylor will quickly become one of your go-to horror writers." -
Readers Favorite 

"You'll anxiously be turning each page unable to wait to learn the fate of each character." -
The Horror Report

"I had a blast hunkering down in bed with the lights off and getting swept away with this book. More then once I thought about turning the lights back on. The novel just has such a great creep factor to it!" -
Creature From the Book Lagoon

"The murders are ruthless, and they're supposed to be. When combined with the vivid characterizations, they'll stick with you long after you've finished the book." -
Madison Graph

"Taylor does a great job with a breakneck pace, keeping both action intense, and dialog engaging. Even in such a quick read, Taylor succeeds at bringing each character to life, as their lives are threatened at every turn." - D.M. Siciliano, author of

April A. Taylor is an award-winning, multi-genre author and dark art photographer. Her debut novel, The Haunting of Cabin Green, was featured on:

-Popsugar's '13 Most Chilling Horror Books of 2018.'

-Inquisitr's 'Best Horror Books of 2018.'

-Ranker's '2018's Scariest Horror Books.'

-BoredPanda's '7 Books That Scared Me Half to Death.'

-BLGM's 'Best Gothic Horror Books.'

Sinkhole: A Horror Story and Missing in Michigan received 5-Star ratings from Readers' Favorite. Corvo Hollows was named a 5-Star Must Read Book by Reedsy.

Sinkhole: A Horror Story was featured on:

-Grit Daily's 'Horror Continues to Thrive with the Scariest Books of 2019.''s 'Celebrate Halloween with These Macabre and Progressive Horror Books.'

-BuzzFeed Community's '7 New Horror Books That Will Actually Scare You.'

The Haunting of Cabin Green was the #1 Amazon best seller in the U.S. New Horror Releases category for three straight weeks. It went on to become a #1 Best-Seller in Gothic, Ghosts, U.S. Horror, and LGBT Horror. Additionally, it was the Top Vote-Getter in the Horror/Suspense category of The Kindle Book Review's 2018 Reader's Choice Awards.

Both books in her Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales series became a #1 Best Seller in Amazon's Canada store during March 2018.

Many of April's books take their inspiration from real-life events. Local history is woven throughout the Alexa Bentley Paranormal Mysteries Series, and all of her novels/novellas contain at least one or two elements from the author's life.

In her psychological thriller book, Corvo Hollows, April delved even deeper into her own real-life events through a fictionalized account of one of the freakiest encounters she's ever been involved in. The main character in Corvo Hollows also battles fibromyalgia, as does April.

Like many writers, she started putting pen to paper during early childhood. Her first project was a family newspaper entitled The Taylor Family Times. Since then, she's spent more than three decades honing her craft through a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction projects.

April's appropriately spooky black cat, Riley, is her toughest editor and critic (look for pictures of him in action - and sleeping on the job - on Instagram!).

Horror caught her attention at a young age, and she's enjoyed exploring the darkness hidden inside everyone’s psyche ever since. She's also intrigued by each person’s capacity for astounding levels of goodness in the face of overwhelming evil.

April's horror, paranormal mysteries, thrillers, and dark, reimagined myths and fairy tales tackle both these topics. The darker side of humanity is also on display inside her Fine Art and Dark Art photographs, which have been published and exhibited around the world by a diverse list of media sources such as Fangoria, Scream: The Horror Magazine, and the short horror film Cathartic.

April is a proud member of the Horror Writer's Association. She lives in Michigan with the love of her life and their two cats. If her life was a cartoon, she'd be Lisa Simpson.
