A young woman’s fears regarding the gruesome photos appearing on her cell phone prove justified in a ghastly and unexpected way. A chainsaw-wielding Evil Dead fan defends herself against a trio of undead intruders. A bride-to-be comes to wish that the door between the physical and spiritual worlds had stayed shut on All Hallows’ Eve. A lone passenger on a midnight train finds that the engineer has rerouted them toward a past she’d prefer to forget. A mother abandons a life she no longer recognizes as her own to walk up a mysterious staircase in the woods.
In her debut collection, Christa Carmen combines horror, charm, humor, and social critique to shape 13 haunting, harrowing narratives of women struggling with both otherworldly and real-world problems. From grief, substance abuse, and mental health disorders, to a post-apocalyptic exodus, a seemingly sinister babysitter with unusual motivations, and a group of pesky ex-boyfriends who won’t stay dead, Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked is a compelling exploration of horrors both supernatural and psychological, and an undeniable affirmation of Carmen’s flair for short fiction.

A must read/listen
Raw & unfiltered yet each scene is set so eloquently. The author is so descriptive you’re going to want to either listen to this undistracted or purchase the book and read it the old fashioned way. Tip: 1.25 speed made the pace more engaging for me.

Deftly mixes emotion and terror
The writer seems to get how to combine depth of feeling with the vulnerability of horror. She balances pathos with terror to bring about some good scares and at time heart wrenching characters. Highly recommend.
