review
Twelve Tantalizingly Twisted Tales was spooktacular! Perfect read for fans of Goosebumps, these twelves tales will leave you eager for more of the strange. It was a fun, fast, fantastical read! I am not one for spooky books but this one has just the right amount of creep and freak to keep your heart racing, your imagination soaring and your mind wondering what might be lurking in the night or shower stall.
Michaelsreview
This was one of the freakiest books I have ever read. It was so creepy and funny!  These are my favorite kind of stories. Ones that are all interesting, and short enough to keep your attention but long enough to give you a real fright. My favorite story was The Shower Stall.  I hope David Hughes writes more stories in the future.

“This book is ‘Twilight Zone’ for kids.” –Don Winn, founder of Cardboard Box Adventures Publishing and author of the Sir Kaye book series
“Each story is a pleasure!” —Linda LaRue Austin, writer, historian, and author of Midnight Amethyst

David C. Hughes defies the premise that engineers can’t write. With almost four decades of writing experience, he left his full-time corporate job in 2013 to launch his writing career. He has a passion for writing and for other writers, and loves to “talk shop” with anyone who will listen.
A former youth leader and deacon, David’s life is resolutely defined by his pursuit of God, and his desire is to convey God’s love, joy, grace, and healing through his testimony. His blog site, “David C. Hughes, Writer,” broadcasts his latest take on what it means to be a Christ-centered man, husband, father, son, brother, and friend in these exciting and challenging times. His God-ordained book, The Epiphany of Joy, and his picture book, Melted Clowns, both won the Texas Association of Authors 2015 Best Book Award. He is also the author of 10 Little Hiccups/10 pequeños hipos, a bilingual counting book.
In July 2016, Progressive Rising Phoenix Press  released his latest book, Twelve Tantalizingly Twisted Tales, a collection of a dozen spooky stories aimed at 8 to 14 year olds.
Originally from the town of Maine, New York, David now lives in Granbury, Texas with the loves of his life: his wife, Mary, and his daughter, Hannah. At last count he also has two dogs, a handful of fish, six chickens, and countless geckos.

  1. Hi Margie! Thanks so much for your feedback–I’m so glad you enjoyed T4. This is the kind of stuff I really enjoy writing, and I’m glad Michael is asking for more. I’ve got several additional stories in various stages of completion, and several more are on the list. My 9-year-old daughter came up with the working title for the follow-on: Thirteen Terrifying Tales of Terror. A little redundant, but we’ll go with it for now. Again, my appreciation!

    • Margiesmustreads says:

      The alliteration is AWESOME!! I love the titles! That is what made me want to read the book! Michael is 10 and will be thrilled that you read his review! I can’t wait to tell him!
