It's Coming For You
– A Collection of Horrors
A collection of 10 short horror stories—some darker than others.

Author Donna Trovato presents disturbing stories intended to make you ponder, cringe, shudder, or gasp. Have you glanced over your shoulder lately to see if someone is watching you—lurking in the shadows?
It's Coming For You
The Sundown Clown
Creepy Curt stepped into striking range. His lips parted, and a toothy grin possessed his face. Under the mask, his eyes widened and gleamed with eagerness. The clown raised the butcher knife above his head and brought it down onto the man’s wrist, severing his hand.
The dismembered limb rolled off the top of the couch and onto the floor. The jester wallowed in the aesthetic vision before him. Thick, red blood had splattered the backside of the beige sofa. It was a perfect canvas—artwork for a wall in his dining room.
Blood-curdling screams broke his reverie. The male stood, waving his bloody stump into the air, emitting guttural sounds. A forceful stream of red spurted from the opened flesh—the location of where a hand existed a few seconds ago. What a glorious vision. The clown shifted his gaze to the female. In her panic-induced attempt to flee, she had fallen onto the coffee table. The glass broke, leaving her sprawled on the floor among scattered shards.
Reviews of Donna's Book
I can’t say enough about this fabulous piece of horror. As an avid reader of the spooky, creepy, gruesome, and the suspenseful; I enjoyed each of these masterfully crafted tales. If you enjoy a variety of frightening horror and sci-fi with a few twists and surprises this is right up your alley. Brace yourself, the descriptive details can really activate your senses.
This collection has an excellent variety of eerily gripping tales, with many twists and jaw-droppers. The stories are delightfully grotesque, ghastly, startling, and disturbing. I thoroughly enjoyed riding along with the characters during their haunting journeys and look forward to more from the author.
I like that it was dark. It was unexpectedly dark. And it took me places that were totally unexpected. All in all, it was an exciting, well-crafted read!
