Book Description

THE FRIGHT FACTORY -A cozy cabin on a lake. A few glasses of wine. Erotic conversation. What could go wrong?

Wesley and Robin Tate became empty-nesters in their early forties when their daughter left home for college.

Jesse Lawless is an indie film maker intent on producing the next great horror classic despite lacking the funds for actors, effects, or a script. He will stop at nothing to capture and upload his chilling masterpiece to satisfy his rabid internet fan base.

With a secluded resort cottage as the setting and the Tates as his cast, Lawless sets in motion a plan to produce the most realistic slasher flick ever.

The Fright Factory is Jesse's version of reality show and movie premise rolled into one. For the Tates, no acting ability is necessary as the terror becomes all too real. In each round, Jesse turns up the brutality in a game where killing your best friend may be the only way to survive.


"A Fast Paced Chiller That Won't Disappoint! Potter has done a fine job of introducing and developing characters I related to. He managed to make me care about their survival and kept me guessing to the final pages whether or not they would live or die in the final round of Jesse's sick "game." Fright Factory is definitely a chiller fast paced and at times graphic yet kept me turning pages from start to finish." 5 stars

"Terror has a new name, and it's Jesse Lawless. This was a very fast read. I hated to put it down once I started reading. I finished it in a day."

"I read The Fright Factory in two days during spare time. How...I couldn't put it down. If you like shows such as CSI and Criminal Minds, you will want to read this book."

"The Fright Factory touches our most primary emotion: fear, and our primitive response to it: fight or flight. It asks us to question how far we would go in order to save our loved ones. Could you kill a friend to save your spouse? Equal parts thriller and horror, The Fright Factory delivers the goods to those who enjoy fast paced suspense on the chilling side. A quick read that will keep you involved and entertained from beginning to end." Reader's Choice Book Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book that really lives up to it's name! 4 Oct. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Fright Factor - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds

`Wesley saw motion from the corner of his eye. Jesse wandered into the room. "Howzit going?" He had a length of chain and a padlock. He looped the chair between the two chairs, pulled up the slack, and then clicked in a lock. With a second length of chain he secured Wesley and Robin to the cast iron fireplace. Where Robin had been able to slide along the floor earlier, they were now secured in place. Jesse showed them both a candle with a hole drilled through the middle near the base of the stick. He set the candle in a brass candle holder on the coffee table. He walked to the kitchen and returned in a few seconds with a long red stick, obviously dynamite. He used duct-tape to fasten two more sticks to the first and he set the three next to the candle. He then took a long string that looked like a fuse and threaded it through the hole in the candle. Wesley wasn't sure what Jesse was doing but he knew it wasn't good. Jesse took the camera off his shoulder strap and began to film Wesley and Robin. Brandi entered the room with a long butane fireplace lighter. She wiggled her ass for the camera and licked the end of the starter seductively and then headed for the candle.'

Wesley and Robin Tate are your average run of the mill couple. They have spent their lives raising two kids and running their own restaurant. As far as Robin knows, the restaurant has been doing great allowing her to be a stay at home wife and mother who is on the Board of Directors for a non-profit group which raises funds for children's charities. They have been able to put both kids into law school and new it was just the two of them. No problems in their lives.

I have been asked to review this book for KBR. I love thrillers, murder shows, Bones, CSI, Crime TV, I can't get enough of freaks, psychos and the like. This book totally quenched my thirst for all this and more...I would watch the film of this book in a heartbeat, it's THAT GOOD.

I dislike spoiler reviews, so I shall just set the scene....a married couple, in business together, kids grown up, seeking to spice things up, take a break, head for an isolated cabin for a bit of sexy time, bubbles and relaxation. They have their own secrets and issues within the marriage that soon become apparent, but after a few pages, an event happens to turn the book, spin it on it's axis, and send a shiver down your spine......

The book is well written and I adore the cover. Simple, but attention grabbing and like Ronseal, it does what it says on the tin!

I will say that this book is not for everyone, some sexual scenes and violent pages will not be what people like, but if you are not fainthearted and love a good chill with your read, then pick up this little gem now. Who knows, one day we might be seeing it on the big screen, spilling our popcorn and hiding behind our hands in terror.....

5.0 out of 5 stars freaked me out 2 July 2012
By Jay
Format:Kindle Edition
this book kept me on the edge of my seat it also kept me up at night with horrible thoughts. you try to imagine what you would do in the same situation and how you would escape. i even got quite angry, willing the victims to take gruesome revenge on their attackers. i do feel like the ending should have been better in some way but thats my only criticism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the light hearted! 19 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book a good read, it was a detailed horror and aptly named! I felt myself thinking if I were in this situation how would I react, how would I escape. If you are quite sensitive to anything gory or sexual I wouldn't recommend but if you enjoy a good gruesome horror, this is the book for you. The book held my interest however I was disappointed with the ending, another chapter or two would have finished it off nicely.
