Creepy short story
A review of Blue Bell by Roma Gray
This short story is a twenty-three-minute audiobook. The main character is Jasper, who gets talked into doing something bad by his criminal big brother so that he can do something good with his ill-gotten gains. However, things don’t go according to plan and Jasper ends up hiding in a strange little building. While there, he meets Blue Bell, a blue-haired clown who wants to be friends. Of course, being a horror story, all is not as it seems.
The story flowed nicely and the pace was good.
The production of the audiobook was good, no music or sound effects and I didn’t hear any other background noises whilst listening.
I also felt the narrator did a very good job with the manuscript and created good voices for each of the characters.

Starts of like Pulp Fiction and ends as Annabelle!
This is my introduction to the Writer Roma Gray, and it was a great way to meet her. The story has an incredible flow, it is verbose without being overly intellectual (not a bad thing). and it sets up the start of something much bigger.
It begins with a jewelry heist gone awry, and ends with Hitler's Doll. The main character is having everything go wrong for him, and he finds himself on the lam, and ends up somewhere he shouldn't be. BlueBell has tinges of Robert the Doll and Anabelle mixed in, but is a set up for an even bigger (and better?) story. Gray's writing really sings. It is descriptive and draws you in fast, which is necessary in a short story like this. Her narrative keeps your attention with things ranging from broken keys to horny skeletons.
Her narrator, Terry Self does an amazing job epitomizing her poor schlub of a main character, Jasper. You feel his panic, and sympathize with him with Self's empathetic tones. This is the first time hearing him (so I got a tofer in this tale) and I have to say he is impressive.
All I can say is that I now want to hear the rest of the story. Great job, ROma and Terry! You make a nice pairing.

Another seriously creepy horror tale by the amazing Roma Gray! Ms. Gray has the ability to tell a tale in such a way that you really feel like you are in the story, not just reading a story!
If clowns or ventriloquist dummies scare you, don't read this one! The picture on the cover gives you an idea of what is in store when you listen to this story.
I love old-style horror ala "The Twilight Zone" and "Night Shift" since I was raised watching those shows when I was probably too young to be exposed to them. Ms. Gray writes in the same style and I love it!
Terry Self does an amazing job (again) in his narration of this one. I hope that he continues to narrate for Ms. Gray!
