Praise for HE WAITS: "In the horror genre, familiarity absolutely does breed contempt, and Smitherd obviously knows this. Why else would he be so talented at expertly crafting stories that defy expectations? For me there is no greater joy than seeing an artist excel at his craft." – Aintitcoolnews.com
Quite literally, no escape. Because he's always with you. And in the real world -the world of you, the reader – HE WAITS will stay in your mind in a way that you won't expect …
PLUS THE SECOND STORY, 'KEEP YOUR CHILDREN CLOSE'

By the time the sun sets, someone in that field will be dead, and Shelley must somehow make sure it isn't one of her children … KEEP YOUR CHILDREN CLOSE is a story that you will find impossible to predict.

AMAZON REVIEWS OF LUKE SMITHERD'S WORK:
"I couldn't help myself and read this is one sitting." – simon211175, Amazon Vine Voice
"It was one of those books where you tell yourself you will read just one more page, then look at the clock and realise that it's 2 hours later. I would thoroughly recommend it." – Elaine Hosegood
"I have owned a Kindle for about 2 years and downloaded some excellent books for very little cost but Luke Smitherd's works beat the lot." – Silversmith, Amazon UK Review
"As soon as I started reading I was completely sucked in, which very rarely happens for me. I couldn't wait to get home and read it each night. I laughed. I cried. I did actual real life gasps of horror." – Katie, Amazon Review
