Okay. Uncomfortable moment of brutal honesty over. Moving on.

I didn't get a chance to post a link here to pop culture blogger Benoit Lelievre's very thorough review of CREEP before I left for Toronto. Here's a taste:
When I was a teenager, I read thrillers a lot. For me, they bridged the gap in between Young Adult fiction and Stephen King novels, which were my target back then. By the time I was seventeen, I have read so many John Grisham books that I still since when I see them on the shelves, at the store. Thriller is a genre that has been beaten into the ground by a streak of mediocre writers and abuse of Hollywoodian clichés, so I was a little worried when I picked up Jennifer Hillier's Creep. Fortunately, she was able to work her way around the majority of clichés of the genre and write a solid psychological thriller about psychology scholars. I know it sounds a little weird when said like that, but it's a story that gets under your skin. The characters of Creep are complex, compelling and most important, they are human.

And here's another one by Tanzey Cutter from FreshFiction.com:
Debut author Jennifer Hillier gives thriller fans a quick-paced, smartly written psychological suspense that will surprise readers with not only its content, but with its shocking ending. I never saw it coming, and it takes a lot to blow me away. I can't wait for Hillier's next thriller! Click HERE for the full review at FreshFiction.com.
