(Review) Because We Told Her To by Sal Conte

Because We Told Her To - Camille Pollock, Sal Conte


It was supposed to be a simple babysitting job, a way for teenage runaway, Kim, to get off the mean streets of Hollywood three nights a week. Then, Amaryllis and Hyacinth said "Let's play Twitter," and things got really strange.

As riveting as "Horns," with characters as engaging as "Heart Shaped Box."  This is a new short story from the author of "Child's Play," "The Power," and "The Toothache Man." Sal Conte is the horror writing alter-ego of bestselling author, E. Van Lowe.




Sometimes kids are creepy...


Sometimes there is a reason.


This short story pulls no punches. Because We Told Her To is a short, but horrific tale of two little girls with an unnatural gift of persuasion. Written in the first person, this story is a nightmare come to life. The horror in this story is what may happen next. The story isn't perfect, but it doesn't have to be given it's style. It is a solid introduction to some characters that I hope Sal Conte continues to run with. I would love to read more from the author.
