    A few years ago we had an invasion of caterpillars that was so bad we would be driving over a carpet of them to get into our garage Seriously, our blacktop was a moving wave of caterpillars It freaks me out to this day, but hey at least they didn t fly Just think about how hard it is to avoid flies.WAITING OUT WINTER is about an invasion of killer flies a government experiment gone wrong, don t they always However this isn t your average romping, chomping creature feature This is a quiet A few years ago we had an invasion of caterpillars that was so bad we would be driving over a carpet of them to get into our garage Seriously, our blacktop was a moving wave of caterpillars It freaks me out to this day, but hey at least they didn t fly Just think about how hard it is to avoid flies.WAITING OUT WINTER is about an invasion of killer flies a government experiment gone wrong, don t they always However this isn t your average romping, chomping creature feature This is a quiet little horror story, taking place during an apocalypse, but focused on the disaster from a small town and family point of view It s not gory, but it is poignant, sad and scary This was a short, entertaining story and only my second from Kelli Owen I recommend it and I will be on to the second novella shortly You can get a copy here I bought this book with my hard earned cash and Kelli Owen was kind enough to sign it for me Thank you, Kelli

    This review appeared originally in a published issue of SCREAM Mag 2019Flies are disgusting I can t stand it when there s a fly in my house making that incessant buzzing noise or tapping against the window as it tries to stupidly escape through the glass Let s not even talk about what flies are before they mature into adulthood Those hideous creatures that feast on anything reeking, dead or dying.They make my skin crawl and I m sure I m not alone in this For so small an insect, flies, especi This review appeared originally in a published issue of SCREAM Mag 2019Flies are disgusting I can t stand it when there s a fly in my house making that incessant buzzing noise or tapping against the window as it tries to stupidly escape through the glass Let s not even talk about what flies are before they mature into adulthood Those hideous creatures that feast on anything reeking, dead or dying.They make my skin crawl and I m sure I m not alone in this For so small an insect, flies, especially in number, induce the heebie jeebies in us all.That s why this book, WAITING OUT WINTER is such a thrilling story Author Kelli Owen takes the horror trope of an apocalyptic plague and scales it down to the smallest threat the fly and its spawn.But these are not your every day flies Due to some kind of government engineering gone wrong, the flies are carriers of disease One bite will kill you slowly and painfully.This novella was rich with well developed characters Instead of following this pandemic tragedy on a large scale, the author zeroes in on a family and the day to day struggles they face It s an emotional rollercoaster as the reader engages in the family s victories and losses My favorite aspect of this book was how realistic it was It infiltrated my real life fears especially when there was a huge, slow fly trapped in the car with me while I was driving I rolled all the windows down and I was relieved when it finally found its way out I highly recommend this novella to fans of apocalyptic, nature horror It s a page turning, compelling read that leaves you feeling nervous about flies but hopeful that mankind will always find a way I can t wait to read the sequel, HATCH It has a spider on the cover which already makes me creeped out.5 out of 5 skulls

    It started with the tent worms Then came the government brain trust solution Now everything has gone to hell and people are trapped inside their houses, afraid to go outside lest they get bitten by disease carrying black flies or worse.I really liked this one from Kelli Owen The characters and storyline were well drawn in the short format and I enjoyed the apocalyptic concept Very well done My only gripe is that it ended a bit abruptly, but evidently there is a follow up novella The Hatch It started with the tent worms Then came the government brain trust solution Now everything has gone to hell and people are trapped inside their houses, afraid to go outside lest they get bitten by disease carrying black flies or worse.I really liked this one from Kelli Owen The characters and storyline were well drawn in the short format and I enjoyed the apocalyptic concept Very well done My only gripe is that it ended a bit abruptly, but evidently there is a follow up novella The Hatch Nice Looking forward to it

    You know how some authors just click with you as a reader That no matter what they publish, you can find the good elements within it even if others are lambasting it from pillar to post Well, Kelli Owen is not that kind of author for me.This is my second read from her, and I found this novella to have the same issues which I found lacking in The Neighborhood namely, a sense of disconnect from the characters and what is befalling them Owen glosses over so many things so quickly, I never fee You know how some authors just click with you as a reader That no matter what they publish, you can find the good elements within it even if others are lambasting it from pillar to post Well, Kelli Owen is not that kind of author for me.This is my second read from her, and I found this novella to have the same issues which I found lacking in The Neighborhood namely, a sense of disconnect from the characters and what is befalling them Owen glosses over so many things so quickly, I never feel like a part of proceedings, or as if I m in the heads of the protagonists So with Waiting for Winter I found myself never truly engaged even though the story and what is taking place should be genuinely interesting It s not the writing Technically, her prose is well constructed and flows smoothly But it just does not engage me.Which is a shame, because the apocalypse in this world is quite different while still being far closer to reality than the dead coming back to life, or aliens deciding they need some resource we have in abundance This one also ends on an extremely open note, so I ll likely be back for its sequel, because I need to work out exactly what it is I m missing 2.5 Ominous Buzzing Sounds for Waiting for Winter

    In this clever and very frightening precursor to an obviously much larger story, Kelli Owen brings a fresh take to the post apocalyptic horror story Trapped in their homes after deadly disease carrying black flies invade their town created by the government to eradicate tent worms, but of course this goes awry , citizens of the small Wisconsin burg realize that survival is the least of their worries And what Owen so deftly presents is how ordinary folks struggle to survive amidst the horror, In this clever and very frightening precursor to an obviously much larger story, Kelli Owen brings a fresh take to the post apocalyptic horror story Trapped in their homes after deadly disease carrying black flies invade their town created by the government to eradicate tent worms, but of course this goes awry , citizens of the small Wisconsin burg realize that survival is the least of their worries And what Owen so deftly presents is how ordinary folks struggle to survive amidst the horror, and her quiet examination of our somewhat closed society, whether it be urban or suburban, and how at the end of the day, when faced with an apocalyptic horror, to paraphrase Jack from Lost, we can either survive togetheror die alone.The sequel was recently released, called THE HATCH.Highly recommended

    A 3 star review Reallyof a 2.5 star review.Thought this was going to be a suspense horror book Not really a lot of either involved Perhaps that explains my response as I was expecting this to involve some level of horror that simply was not there.A fairly pedestrian something bad happens and some people survive storyline The characters were not terribly engaging.

    Three friends return home after a weekend hunting trip to find their town apparently abandoned It isn t, though everyone is indoors, avoiding the genetically engineered flies that carry a deadly super virus which has wiped out much of Wisconsin and beyond Now, the men and their families can only wait for the infestation to die out, and hope their sanity doesn t die too.Kelli Owen offers up a well crafted and claustrophobic tale here, with vivid characterizations and a stark use of atmosphere Three friends return home after a weekend hunting trip to find their town apparently abandoned It isn t, though everyone is indoors, avoiding the genetically engineered flies that carry a deadly super virus which has wiped out much of Wisconsin and beyond Now, the men and their families can only wait for the infestation to die out, and hope their sanity doesn t die too.Kelli Owen offers up a well crafted and claustrophobic tale here, with vivid characterizations and a stark use of atmosphere As other reviewers have mentioned, however, this is a novella that should have been a novel, with big chunks of exposition replacing scenes that might have been great if fleshed out As it is, Waiting Out Winter works best as a prologue to it s excellent sequel The Hatch.3.5 stars
