10 Weird Things About Jessica Redmerski

1) I’m terrified of heights, particularly airplanes or anything man-made (rides at the fair, elevators, tall buildings, etc.). But just thinking about being on a plane gives me anxiety!

2) I smoked for eleven years, until 2007 when my left lung collapsed and I spent five days in the hospital with a tube hanging out of my chest. It’s safe to say that I’ve never touched a cigarette since.

3) I used to love AMC’s The Walking Dead, watched it religiously, until they killed off Carl, and I haven’t watched an episode since! Yes, I’m THAT serious about my favorite characters.

4) I have such a strong sense of smell that I can smell the toxins and sickness coming off a person’s body who is running a fever.

5) I have a mild case of OCD and hypochondria.

6) I used to have a crush on Nomak from Blade II – yes, the character and not the actor who played him, though there’s certainly nothing wrong with him, either.

7) There will always be a huge place in my heart for 80’s music and movies.

8) I have seen the film, The Lost Boys, sixty-five times and at one point I could recite the movie from beginning to end, word-for-word.

9) I am the author of DIRTY EDEN. (Trust me, this fits perfectly on any list of weird things).

10) Years ago, I used to have dreams about fires and if I ever had them three nights in a row, something close to me would catch fire on the fourth day!



Genre: Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptic, Romance, Suspense.



Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.

Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

Review: The Closed Case


Author: Amay Saxena. 
Genre: Mystery Thriller, Novella. 
Rating: 🍫🍫🍬


Hilda’s case was unfathomable. Mystery in itself. A case no one had control over. What one could do was – gape, act, and regret, or die.

Roy, a retired detective, discovers that his helper is abducted by a psychopath, who claims to be an admirer of his work. To save his helper, Detective Roy must travel to Mumbai, where he has some horrendous memories associated with his past, which he has been trying to shun. As Detective Roy arrives in Mumbai, he discovers that it is not just a kidnapping case, but this case is strongly connected to his dark past. A past – he never wish to revisit.
Created from one of the darkest secrets of the most ferocious periods in the world’s history, The Closed Case, is Detective Roy’s journey of unearthing the truth behind something instructable, darkling, and facinorous that might leave you mystified.


The cover is really basic and looks like a template cover. It's clear that the author did not really pay attention to the cover. 


The Closed Case sounded really interesting when I read the synopsis, and though the storyline was pretty good, the execution wasn't. 

I think it could've been a pretty great read if the author had splurged a bit and gotten a professional editor to look over the manuscript before publishing. 

I really liked the storyline, but it was a pain to read redundant sentences, some of which were also riddled with grammatical errors. 

So yeah, I'd give the author a thumbs up for the effort, but also advise him to work on the editing a bit more.
