Last Night While You Were Sleeping

Last Night While You Were Sleeping

Displacement, replacement, injection, rejection, the best and the worst birthdays ever, vengeful spirits, disgruntled bridge trolls, a semi-sappy Satan, Bloody Mary as you’ve never seen her, Bigfoot, a suburban brush with the undead, rainbows you don’t want to find the end of, and more.

This collection includes mostly dark and sometimes humorous poetry, flash fiction, and short stories from the mind of Michelle Kilmer, including ‘Mirielle’, a finalist in the Crypticon 2014 Writing Contest.

LAST NIGHT WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING also features illustrations by talented artists including Rob Sacchetto, Nick Gucker, Kriscinda Lee Everitt, Travis Bundy, James Lacroix, and others.

Praise for LNWYWS

“… a collection of some of most brilliant, creepy, and fun tales and verses I have ever read… There is something for everyone here, but what struck me the most is that every story is amazingly good. That never happens.”

“Wow! Just WOW. Michelle Kilmer is just mind blowing. I can only imagine what twisted tales she has spinning around in her head.”

“I’ve read some of Michelle’s previous works. This book, however, is the most creative and imaginative so far.”

“Kilmer’s book takes me back to my childhood nightmares! Her collection of short stories is reminiscent of ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’, the twists and turns of her writing always leave me shocked and either wincing or with my mouth wide open.”

“I could not put this book down! Despite the loss to my sleep. But when I did get sleep, it was filled with nightmares from Michelle’s stories. This book, like all of Michelle’s work, is enthralling, immersing, and brilliantly written. I read a lot of novels. She has quickly and overwhelmingly established herself as my favorite author. Buy it. Read it. Buy all the others. Then wait impatiently for her next masterpiece.”
