Book Review: Writing Scary Scenes

Must-Have Reference for Genre Writers

Book Cover Writing Scary Scenes is another excellent offering from author, teacher, and master craftswoman Rayne Hall. Recommended for writers of many genres (romance, mystery, suspense, horror), this concise reference book covers every possible aspect for creating skin crawling, heart racing moments in your story.

Numerous examples are included to spark the writer’s imagination. Rayne also supplies an extensive list of euphonics – words for every mood or situation (fear, apprehension, fights, foreboding, etc.), useful when editing weak words from your manuscript.

Last but not least, Rayne offers up three of her own short stories, all great reads, and shining examples of her techniques at work. This reference is a must-have addition to the writer’s craft library.

  1. Are your books in paper back or just ebook. They sound like just what I am interested in. Especially the one on writing a fight scene.

    • Hi Mary, The books for writers are available in e-book format only. It makes them cheaper, and it also allows you to download them to your computer so you can work with them directly as you write. If you don’t have an e-reader or Kindle, I recommend getting them from where you can download them in any format, including whatever works best for your on your PC. Rayne

  2. Thank you for this terrific resource, Celia and Rayne. My credit card was hacked, so I saved this review for two weeks until my new card arrived and I could buy the book. Now done. Book is on my Kindle now, safe and sound. I read all the reviews, Liked the book, and am all set. I just love this supportive authors community, so many wonderful people here. Rayne, I’m so looking forward to reading your bonus stories at the end!
