Janie is a disturbed young woman battling against her troubled mind. Soon it is not just her sanity that is slipping away from her, but also her desire for survival. Richard, a psychiatrist, must first confront the haunting shadows of his own past before he can reach into Janie’s dark mind and rescue her. “The sense of panic returned, clawing at her sanity, pulling her down towards an immense darkness; a suffocating, endless, soul-destroying black void from which there could be no escape.”

May 28, 2009"scary" The italicised voice in the head is a brilliant stylistic device, and not one I have seen before. The characters are down-trodden and agonised, each in their own way. This is very well written and richly deserves all the rave reviews it has been getting.
May 24, 2009"Vivid and engrossing" In Dark Minds pulls you into the story right from the beginning. The author sets a mood that brings Hitchcock to mind. Hang on and enjoy this exciting ride!
May 20, 2009"A book to wake the senses!" I've only read the preview, but it pulled me so far into this amazing story that now I'll have to buy the book to see what happens. The writing is coherent and well-organized. Well done, Angela!
Apr 9, 2009"Wonderful Work!" I read your preview and I loved what I saw. The way your words are placed together and the story itself is awesome. I love this line: "She carefully looked over the edge, her long red hair billowing out behind her, it was a long way to fall to the crashing deep-blue waters below and death beckoned her like an old welcoming friend." Wow!
Apr 1, 2009"Dark Minds" Although I would not choose to read this type of story normally, a serious subject with the depths of the mind in maelstrom, it is handled with extreme technical, dramatic and emotional skill right from the off. The style is such, I could never hope to emulate it, but, backtracking a tad, it is not my genre so perhaps it's best not to try. Although it's a happy accident, I am terrified of heights, so the opening paragraphs were very real. Actually, this goes to show that you've got it dead right, eh? Again, not my thing, but it certainly is my wife's. So, one download to you and a possible sale if she is gripped, as I expect her to be. Well done.
Mar 25, 2009"In Style" I have read the preview and really impressed.Subtle and strong, the narrative slowly unfolds the personal trajectories of the characters. Angela deserves praise for telling us the hidden aspects of our mind that still exists.It is a very reassuring feeling.
Mar 21, 2009"Re: OUCH" p.s. Would like your oppinion on CASEY-No Time To Duck
Feb 23, 2009"Fascinating, disturbing" Angela's book tells an intriguing story that will grab your attention from the first page and just won't let go. As someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder, I can attest to the accuracy of the portrayals of the characters...not just that of the main character, but most especially the reactions of the friends and family who wonder what's going on and what they can do. This is a very well-written and interesting book; I really enjoyed it.
Jan 24, 2009"Who decides reality?" From reading the preview alone this story captures your attention and holds you captive. Living with mental illness within a family is chaotic, often leaving loved ones in a constant state of worry and upheaval. This story opens a surreal window into a tortured, very frightened mind. You feel for her, you feel for the ones she will desert, and you feel for the times she will miss due to fear to live through painful memories... Ms. Hooper is able to give a realistic insight into a young woman's troubled mind as she struggles to hold on to sanity... I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially to anyone who has had the spectre of mental illness touch themselves or a family member.

Dec 9, 2008"A Real Page Turner! " I have just read the preview and plan to buy the full version. I can't wait to read the rest of the story. Angela's craft is well developed and she truly knows how to spin a yarn! She manages to plant seeds in the readers mind, leaving them anxious and wanting more. Great Job Angela, I am hooked! M.
