Choosing the Artist Trading Card format, since it seemed to be a manageable size to produce on a daily basis, she shared the process on her blog, where it quickly became clear to her readers that she was creating an inevitable, incidental, Tarot deck.

More About the Author

MATT SHAW is the published author of over 50 stories. Although known as being a horror author, he also enjoys spending time in other genres too - something he had always planned to do in order to have at least one book, in a wide collection, which would appeal to people from all walks of life. Shaw was first published in 2004 with his horror novel Happy Ever After - the first of his books to reach the number one slot on Amazon and the first of his books to use his trademark style of narrating the stories through the first person perspective. An extremely prolific writer, Matt Shaw is continually writing as well as keeping up to date with his readers via his (some might say) crazy Author Page on Facebook.

Once Published weekly in a lad's magazine with his photography work, Matt Shaw is also a published author and cartoonist. More recently he is known for turning his stories into films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cabin Fever 21 Sep 2012
By L Lamb
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a bit of a departure for Matt Shaw with the story taking place in America rather than his usual British based horror.
The story follows Craig and his family as they take a much needed vacation to the family cabin in the wilds of the US. An unfortunate incident involving the locals occurs which disrupts the families plans of a quiet, restful break. Alone in the cabin Craig is haunted by the memories of his father's tales of restless spirits in the woods and he is driven into a state of panic by unexplained noises all around him. The story is tense and gradually builds to a shocking and unexpected climax.
Read this book alone, on a dark night and prepare to be scared witless.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very creepy and scary story!! 21 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the story of Craig. Hoping for a quiet weekend at his father's old cabin to begin writing his new novel, his wife suggests the whole family go down for a break. After a fairly fraught journey, they arrive to find the cabin has been vandalised. Thinking it was no wonder as no-one has been to the cabin since Craigs fathers death many years before, he and his younger daughter go to the local shop to get cleaning supplies - that's when Craigs troubles really begin...

This was something totally different from Matt. Loosely based on legends locals tell of the local asylum cum retreat, it is a well crafted and very creepy ghost story. It is very easy to immerse yourself totally in the story and be completely unaware of your surroundings. It starts off relatively slowly - and the tension builds up quietly and unannounced in the background until you get walloped in the face by an ending I TOTALLY did not expect! The scary bits were REALLY scary, so much so that I actually scared myself at one point! As a departure of sorts from Matt, I am pleased to say it works, and works well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive stuff! 15 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from the author in return for an honest review.

I couldn't quite believe what I was reading. It was horrific, tragic, gory and just plain terrifying all in equal measures. This was a horror story to rival the likes of Stephen King and James Herbert. The Cabin shows just how much Matt Shaw's writing has evolved over the course of the year and I have to say, that I will be watching for more from this guy.

The story progressed at a steady pace, building up to the most tension-filled moments before a climatic finale. The characters were well-rounded and we learnt the background on them and their relationships through the course of the story.

I was engrossed in this story from the get-go and couldn't wait for each opportunity to read further. If you like your horror to be dark, sinister and creepy as hell, this is the book for you.

Thanks, Matt :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant story!! 23 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finished this last night, actually amazed that I didn't have any nightmares if I'm honest!! I really enjoyed this book, at one point I was reading it so fast I had to go back a couple of times to re-read parts that I had missed, the build up of tension is THAT good. I'm hoping there might be a sequel to this just so the story of the asylum can be looked at a bit more. Oh plus it has a belter of a twist at the end!!!! Another brilliant book by Matt :)

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent psychological thriller 30 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very well-told story with an excellent ending. Very "suspense-ful"! Well worth a read and considering some of the other books from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 25 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a fantastic start to a very gripping story! You'll need to read this to get the full background and build up to 'The Cabin II' were most of the incredible twists and turns to the story are but it's more than worth it! Keep in mind both books are novellas so won't take long to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars An ok read.
This is the 2nd of Matt Shaw's books. I found this a good read but not as good as his previous book. The book was well written and I plan on reading more of his books.

1.0 out of 5 stars dreadful
dreadfully short, dreadfully cliched, do not waste your time or your money I wish I still didn't have another eight words to write because honestly this book is not worth them.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring and badly written
The voice of the main character is incredibly annoying, too full of himself and tries too hard to be witty. Dialogue is often unnatural and is thus rather awkward. Read more
