COVID-19 hit bank accounts like an earthquake. The pandemic — and the safety measures it necessitates — have sent shockwaves through every industry.

If you’re in this boat, you need to find a way to boost your income. However, the perfect solution doesn’t just bring in income — it improves your resume along the way. If you can find a way to make money while improving your position on the job market, you’ll benefit twice. After all, job openings are incredibly competitive right now, with far more job seekers than opportunities. You have to find every edge you can. Here’s a look at a few ideas for how you can make money off of your most marketable skills.
Brilliant! Shah Wharton is a brilliant writer ... masterful use of language to instill a sense of foreboding in the reader is on par with horror legends such as King and Koontz ... Shah Wharton is worthy of being recognized as a fantastic voice in the horror genre.
Stephen King meets M Knight Shyamalan: If you’re a fan of the Walking Dead, you’ll definitely love “A Slow Burn” and “The Dead Party”. These are not your average zombie stories, and I really enjoyed the twist endings—especially in “A Slow Burn”... “Rosa and Bella’s Journal of Decline”... issues of mental health and mental illness are explored here, and the author does a fantastic job of telling the story. If you’re a fan of horror, you need to read “Dread: A Horror Collection”. You will not be disappointed.
A great trio of horror: The first story, A Slow Burn, deals with Bernie who finds herself awakening under a bed with dead partygoers all around her. The second story, Rosa & Bella’s Journal of Decline, deals with a mother trying to raise her baby during what seems to be a nuclear apocalypse. The final story, The Dead Party, deals with the dead coming back to life….in order to seize control of the U.K. parliament. Now what makes each story unique is the shift in both tone and style.
Author Shah Wharton has crafted a story that not only captures your imagination, but forces it into a windowless van and blindfolds it. You just have to go along for the ride...If books were music, “A Slow Burn” would be rock n’ roll. A modern day zombie book with a take no prisoners attitude and all the scares you can want. It’s a good thing when you can SEE what you’re reading playing out in your mind like a movie. And that’s what I found with “A Slow Burn.
