"'Hello, My Name is...' is a must read. It's clever, sexy,  and horrifying all rolled into one."
-John C. Farris Dead, Buried & Back Magazine

About the Author

Kindra Sowder was born and raised in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA until the age of 12, when her family moved to Spartanburg, SC.

In January 2014, she graduated with her second degree in Psychology, earning her an AA and BA in the field.

This intense, enjoyable novella is an interesting take on Stevenson's Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. It is about beautiful, charismatic, seductive art agent Blythe McAlister who has a rather anti-social obsession: after sex, she enjoys dismembering and killing the men she has enticed into her bed. While it is suggested that she is the victim of an inherited family curse, it also seems possible that she is living with a particularly nasty multiple personality disorder. It is clear that when these episodes happen - and a male suitor's chances of getting sliced and dismembered are fairly high - that there is an internal struggle for control taking place between Blythe and " Miss Hyde" that Hyde always wins. A prospective boyfriend's best chance to survive would be to come to visit when the Hyde character is satiated by an earlier killing and opts not to get involved. But of course the suitor would have no way of being able to time that.

Author Kindra Sowder provides a nuanced, believable portrait of Blythe McAlister. She is a high living socialite with a taste for the finest of fine things. One pictures her as having every hair in place and wearing stylish, immaculate clothing at every hour of the day and night. She obsesses over details and places high expectations on her friends and associates. Just the sort of personality traits that I would expect to be linked to a person who gives a new meaning to the the word "control".

Hello, my Name Is" is the first installment in an intended series about Miss Hyde. It does a good job of introducing us to her, her friends and employer, her soundproofed penthouse suite and her life style.

I hope further chapters of this will give us more background about Blythe's heritage, and that the future offerings are a bit longer. I hope Ms. Sowder's husband isn't afraid of her now! The main character certainly is creepy enough to make anyone wary... and that's a good thing for a dark writer!

The first installment of Kindra Sowder’s new series, “Hello, My Name is…”, is a bit of mystery to me even now after my initial reading. This is not a bad thing however, as it makes the reader want more. More Blythe, more Hyde, more sex and last but not least more death. The mystery I refer to is that of the main character, Blythe, and her darker side Hyde. The relationship between these two is more interesting than the sexual encounters. Don’t get this reviewer wrong; the sexual scenes are hot enough to make a grown man take a cold shower. Still, the mystery behind Bylthe’s “inheritance” is intriguing. The plot hooks the reader from the first word to the last. Blythe and Hyde have a very peculiar relationship that is both complex and at times parasitic.
This was a fabulous read that was both sexually arousing and mysterious. It was an interesting twist on the Jekyll/Hyde classic. In the next installment I would like to see more about Blythe and her relationship with Hyde when it comes into conflict with a person that Blythe truly loves. This was a great read and I’d recommend this for anyone that is interested in Erotic Horror. I can not wait for the next one.

A riveting and powerful take on the classic tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Sowder changes things up by making it Miss Hyde. The writing reminds of me Stephen King. Potent, pitiless and packed to the gills with detail, the writer has a dazzling ability to paint pictures in the mind of the reader.

The leader character is a smart, cynical survivor who lost her parents at the tender age of seventeen. At an age when most people are carousing or staring at the television/video games, she was making her way in the world. A combination of tireless work, street-savvy and a cutthroat competitive edge allow McAlister to rise to the top, to the point where she has silver showerheads. However, this instinct likely comes from a dark place, one that demands human blood (specifically that of men).

I can't wait to read the rest of the series and heartily recommend this work.

First, I feel the need to disclose that I am not a fan of horror/slasher/gore type stories. Don't watch 'em. Don't read 'em. I read this novella because I'd heard great things about it and, hey, why not venture outside my comfort zone. Well, I didn't venture; I took a fast dive, not unlike riding a very unsafe roller coaster. Blythe is both murderer and victim, as much a slave to her curse as her own victims are. I was sorry to see the ride end where it did, wanting to know more about Blythe's inheritance and the artist of the portrait. I anxiously await Book 2.

First I want to say, I read this as a beta reader.

Kindra Sowder did an amazing job, of putting a new spin on an old classic. I loved Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and the way with which she approached their story, from a different perspective was just awesome. To have a two sided coin, and have them be aware of it, was nothing short of amazing. And the way the sides coexist, with one protecting the other from the more gory of their endeavors. This retelling, plays with your emotions, and you get involved in the life of one character, with two sides. I wholeheartedly recommend this to those who like Erotica, and Horror. It is a good read. Well Done Kindra Sowder, well done.
