I’m quite fucking stoked to read another great review of my debut book, The Bone Cutters. It’s on Monster Librarian, and written by David Simms.

To read the review in its entirety go to the link above. Here’s just a piece of it:

Review Excerpt:

“This has been a banner year for introducing stellar new horror writers to the world. Renee S. DeCamillis shows she is one of these with her novella The Bone Cutters, one of the strangest, but coolest, entries of 2019. Fans of Gwendolyn Kiste or Cody Goodfellow will definitely want to seek this out. The novella is a wonderful form for horror, giving the reader and author just enough time to grow into the story, fall for the characters, and then leave both with a scar on the soul… Her writing is as razor sharp as the cutting tools the patients use. Not a word is wasted in this lean tale that grabs hold from the get go, and drags the reader through a surreal experience that evokes One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, if written by Clive Barker. A recommended novella to be added to a fine 2019.

Ginger Nuts of Horror, Excerpt from review by Joe X. Young:

“It’s actually refreshing to be able to enjoy a book so much that you were miffed when it was over. … As the debut novella from Renee S. DeCamillis it’s a fantastic beginning to what could prove to be a career to watch.

On our beloved Gingernut-O-Meter I’m giving this a solid 4 out of 5 …  considering that I’ve never read anything which rated a 5 I think The Bone Cutters is doing just fine.”

Kendall Reviews, May 22, 2019, review by Miranda Crites:

Excerpt: “I immediately fell in love with Dory, the writing style, the story … This is a terribly heart-wrenching story with a bit of a haunted house/ghost vibe where you’re also being chased by a bunch of crazy people who want to devour your bones. I didn’t want to put this book down.”
