Hello Ms. Wueshtwoff.,
I like truly scary horror books--those that COULD really happen. I just finished reading Collecting Cooper to be released in a few months. If you'd like a review of your work, please contact
My reviews are placed on Amazon, Blogcritics, Authors.com, and authors den.com.
Sacrifice (Book) - 4/20/2007 9:04:40 AM
I have just recently come on to the site myself, and I was browsing around the different authors. This girl Macey caught my eye because in her Bio, she seemed full of hope, (the next S King etc.) Then I noticed she has been on the site for a couple of years, yet nothing seems to be happening with her. Please just let me say to her that I was very impressed by her style of writing. Well, that is the short excerpts that I have read. My advice to you (for what its worth) Macey is. Don't give up. There is potentially a great writer hidden in there somwhere.
Best of luck. Gerry, Author of Cappawhite
Sacrifice (Book) - 4/5/2006 12:42:12 AM
I am giving an updated review of this novel and this is long overdue after the two years I've had working with Macey on Tabloid Purposes and its second sequel. Then seeing her as an editor she knows what she's doing in the genre. This is coming from A Christian author, but the delivery in this novel is one that rivals a number of female horror authors. The level of brutality in this story is that that can give Richard Matheson a run for his money.
It is a hell of a horror novel, and the ending is one of those that caught me by surprise. Angel Fallow is a character you will remember or relate to because she represents a small population of teens who were messed with emotionally.
This novel calls to mind some of the early Stephen King novels I've read in the sense of the everyperson characters you can relate to. It even has a love story in it, which caught me by total surprise too. Macey is a good writer, actually this is a lot better than a number of the cookie cutter horror novels being produced by Leisure.
I am eager to see what Macey has to offer as far as novels go after this one, and being known as a controversial author it is very easy to appreciate what Macey has done in the short two years since first getting it published. Macey as a peer inspired me as a writer too and that inspiration will appear more in my Science fiction than the horror.
As some are saying Macey wants to be the Queen of Horror, with a book like this she can already call herself the Queen of the Southern Gothic. I know because I read a lot of her short fiction and the story that comes close to this as far as her brutality is the story "To Write A Wrong," and her ability as a nonfiction writer is just as noted too.
I am eager to see what she does with nonfiction too if she can scare with fiction. A mild mannored southern Bell but someone who I can say is misplaced in the South because Sacrifice reads like a Midwestern Horror novel -- it's fucken brutal.

Macey Baggett Wuesthoff has definitely caught my attention with this totally capitivating story of innocence and plot. If an author can make you "smell" the night, "fell" the trees touch you, and "hear" the gallop of the horse that Peter rode so many times to meet Angel, then a great book is born. I could feel all of this and so much more the entire time I was reading Sacrifice. From Lance's harshness to Grandma's kindness, this adventure into Satan's cult is well executied and descripitively supreme. Great choices of character and adjetives make the ending quick and definitely leaves you wanting more from this author. Please tell me there will be more! I can only say thank you so much Macey for a "scary" read. This is what a horror book should be, and more. GREAT WORK!

Sacrifice is a very well written novel by Macey Baggett Wuesthoff. This book will keep you in total suspense from the first page to the very last page. I became so caught up in the book that I could not stop thinking about it until I completed it in two days. Wow, what a marvel this book is to anyone who loves a good horror story. Each and every character is so very well described you can picture that character as you read this book. I love a book that keeps you spellbound trying to figure out how it will all end. No one will be able to figure out the ending to this one! I have read on Macey's publilsher's website that she is writing a sequel to Sacrifice, and I cannot wait to purchase this novel as soon as it is out. I also feel that this novel would make one heck of a good movie! I give this book 10 stars! I read where Macey Baggett Wuesthoff wants to be the next Stephen King. Well, I think she will be well noted one day as the "Queen of Horror."
Sacrifice (Book) - 8/18/2004 7:54:43 AM
I have read Sacrifice by Macey Baggett Wuesthoff and found this book spell binding, unable to put it down until finished. The characters become real to you, like family. You fear for them and worry about them. Days or weeks later you will find yourself thinking about this book, Angel and Peter. I highly reccommend this book to any "horror" addict like myself. The end will leave you breathless and wanting more, I can't wait for the sequel and sure hope there is one. Buy this book for your self or as gifts for those horror fans of yours. You will not be dissapointed. One heck of a book rated ten stars.
Sacrifice (Book) - 8/17/2004 12:58:30 PM
That sounds like a very interesting and scary read! I'd love to read it someday.

You have a unique and a distinct voice when it comes to your writing. I had the honor of working with you nine years ago on Tabloid Purposes and as co-editor breaking in Trent Roman. I encourage you to try to submit a larger market to expand your resume. I am working on my second novel right now and it might be submitted to Amber Quill Press but it might be too surreal. I was published with Naked Snake Press along with Barbra Shenouda. You have some serious chops Macey and you need to get to a publishing house or magazine that would break you out there.
Paying Santa (Short Story) - 1/4/2012 12:45:49 PM
Reply to J. Howard: Yes, it definitely works for me. I encounter readers all the time who appreciate my work enough to pay me for it. That is why I give a free sample, so that people can see if they are interested in the work before they commit to buying it. I didn't become an accredited, published writer by giving my work away for free, and I don't plan to start doing so anytime in the future. No one should have to give their work away for free, including writers and artists.
Thanks to all of you readers out there who remain supportive of me and my work.
Paying Santa (Short Story) - 6/18/2011 10:36:33 AM
the story was interesting, but...i have to make a payment to read your rendition of the ending? I hope i am mistaken and you will set me straight. if not.. i will wish you lots of luck, it must work for you-so there ya' go-

Keep on writing,
Paying Santa (Short Story) - 6/29/2010 6:41:15 AM
I can relate because it was like that with my mother and I before she got married in 1986. It was my mother and maternal grandparents up to 1985-1986 when I started spending Christmas with the would be step-family into step-family. I don't have many christmas stories as the weird Halloween ones over the years because of living with Shawn and Michelle. The most frightening story of my career came out of living in that apartment on Justice, Illinois.

A good story, well written
The Secret of Swan Lake (Short Story) - 7/10/2008 2:52:47 PM
Hi. Nice write. Your story is layered nicely, drawing the reader in with it's casual flow. Though I didn't care for the way the mother dismissed her (that's just me...haha), dialoque was believeable throughout.
You've touched on the Who, What, Where & When...hm, Why? Leave the reader to ponder...that'll bring them back.
Best to you,

Wow, I found my heart racing along with hers. Fantastic, its been a while since any writing's done that for me.

I have had similar experiences. So, it is a given for me to believe for I have seen. Not once, several times in several places I lived, in different states. THEY seem to follow me. Some say, it's due to the 25 watt blue lightbulb I use in my hallways. A portal of sorts... believe what you will, I believe, because I know, first hand.

Nick is a wise man and I can see what he is talking about. Macey, you have some serious talent and I hope you continue it for as long as you walk this planet. We need more writers with your imagination to save literature from people who say "What you should and should not do".
Look forward to reading more.

Nicely written. It has an easy but elevated pace to it. A dark mystery to unravel! nicely done!
As Lost As an Alabamian in a Snowstorm (Short Story) - 5/13/2006 1:03:46 PM
This story is one of Ms. Wuesthoff's masterpieces, I am reading Sacrifice and many of her TABLOID PURPOSES entires. This story is one of the centerpoints of QUAKES AND STORMS, the anthology that she and I co-edited. The entire story kicks some major ass, and this is a story I had the honor of reading in our anthology project. Cool that you made this story available.
As Lost As an Alabamian in a Snowstorm (Short Story) - 5/11/2006 1:37:40 PM

The Unknown (Short Story) - 7/26/2005 6:00:46 PM
One of the more eerier short stories I've read in awile, finally caught the site where you got published on with it. I wanted to wait until you got this fully published to read the rest of it. I am glad I waited, well worth the wait. This is a story that scares the reader worst than "In Death's Face" did, just as creative as well.

Childlessness by Choice: An Acceptable Alternative (Article) - 6/10/2007 9:05:15 PM
Now if only we could get a few billion other people to see the benefits of not having more children maybe we could slow down and look after the ones that are already here. Good work.
Childlessness by Choice: An Acceptable Alternative (Article) - 4/26/2007 4:17:49 AM
This is a hard thing to comment on because I do have a son out there, and eventually I want to have another kid that I could actually raise instead of having the damn system take him away from me like in Iowa.
I give you a lot of credit for writing this one and it is very engaging to read too. I enjoyed this one but I would go insane if I wasn't a parent. It is that sense that I really miss my boy.
Childlessness by Choice: An Acceptable Alternative (Article) - 4/25/2007 9:45:27 AM
My husband and myself, we both don't want children, and I don't care what anyone thinks about that. I enjoyed reading your article.

When Your Period Has You (Article) - 6/25/2005 3:50:12 PM
I, too, experienced horrendous pain due to endometriosis. The pain got so bad that I couldn't sit, stand, walk, lay down... function without pain. The difference is that we had been trying unsuccessfully for nearly two years to conceive. Fortunately, I had a doctor who recognized the symptoms. After laporoscopic surgery, subsequent medication for seven months, and still not becoming pregnant, the doctor performed a laporotomy. Suffice it to say that, internally, I was a mess. After rearranging my internal organs and removing the remaining endometriosis, the pain stopped and I was pregnant in no time.
The doctor warned me that endometriosis can be recurring. I had surgery again (laproscopic) some twenty years later. I then remained pain-free through menopause.
Thanks for posting such a thorough article.

The last stanza makes this IMHO. Good write.
You Opened the Door (Poetry) - 2/26/2011 3:38:20 PM
I didn't need to figure out the last sentence because your words are written well enough to be self explanatory.

You are not far wrong there Macey, but you must keep pluggin, or you'll never be sure.
Well written, Gerry

Loved it! Truth every word..great job Macey.
Lost Light (Poetry) - 6/3/2009 6:10:53 AM
Very nicely penned Macey. Every encounter is a period of growth for each of us. Whether or not things work out, we have grown! My ex didn't walk away, he didn't have the guts. I kicked his sorry butt to the curb. But it was still an unbelieveable hurdle for me. Took a few years to learn how to love myself first.
You Opened the Door (Poetry) - 4/29/2009 12:13:44 AM
Sometimes death only gets one foot through the door and the persons instant reaction is to throw death out faster than it came in. Well written, thanks for sharing.
The Rejection Letter is My Shepherd (Poetry) - 7/4/2008 5:22:48 AM
Most appropriate for all who write. We will all experience trails and tribulations at one time or another.
Keep on writing and expressing yourself! Never quit!
Lost Light (Poetry) - 6/2/2008 4:09:52 PM
I know lots of men like to walk away from Love, Why do they? I guess they get bored or find something much better, at least in their eyesight. Why don't they keep a good thing when they have it. It hurts and takes time to heal when rejected.

your correct that most have past down roads like this. to have and then to have not. i have known such a loss and those memories are still alive at times. time and destined reality transports those thoughts and memories to their final resting place.

I agree with MR. Pee Wee Ed, and I fully appreciate what you are saying in such a wonderful way, I would trust any dog, before I would one of our kind, thei're loyal to the outmost, I would give any dog a medal of bravery that I have known, and if I had to give love or receive it I would go to the dogs, and by the way the priest was right, why can't we be more like them, maybe in a million years we can learn! give her the biggest hug from me, and one for you too!

Wonderful, it sure encourages one to look for a light that can't go out. If you get time check out my poem "Your Light"

Lost Light (Poetry) - 6/27/2007 9:32:22 PM
Macey this started out sad, lonely, and nowhere to turn; then it got happy because of a love that came into your life; and then it got sad again with him leaving you in the dark cold shadows, shivering, frightened, and alone. How sad it is tho, that a lot of men have no staying power.
You penned this very well, Macey, and I felt the shivers of the cold and the loneliness and fear. Very well done.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your Den sister, Barbie

I must confess. Your picture really led me into reading this. I found it rather sexy that you write this kind of stuff. I mean you no harm. It is a compliment--nothing more.
I always thought I was better than woman, but see that we are equal. I will sleep good knowing people like you exist.

Lost Light (Poetry) - 6/5/2007 7:51:53 PM
I too have went through this and have always wondered what my life would be like if a certain person hadn't taken herself away. To this day I sometimes find myself hoping to bump into this girl that was once a happy part of my life. I hope she would come to a high school reunion or something. She may be married and old looking now but I would still like to meet her again just to reminisce about the time we dated. That is how "Lost Light" has affected me. Enough about me. I wish you nothing but the best of good fortune. Please feel free to visit my site here in the "Den"

I am sure that most people have experienced this Macey, at least once. Some make it a lifestyle to take advantage of, and wound others. I am reminded, though, of a rule written into the fabric of the creation: Seedtime and Harvest! Whatever you sow, you will eventually reap. Good write!

"Permanant solutions for temporary problems" and "Exchanging one darkness with the other"..... That is what we call LIFE. Hope is the steering wheel but then the question is whether all the four wheels are there or not. I have a worm-eye-view right sitting in an abysse. Adam had the same tendency and he sinned by eating the "tree of knowledge"
If you have not watched the movie "Crush" please do so.
This very deep and beautiful poem testifies your muse and uniqueness. Thanks.

IT I ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO READ SUCH FINE WORK.
You Opened the Door (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 5:30:08 AM
Macey, regardless of what Richard says, this is a compellingly haunting poem. It strikes deep down into the soul, and picks and gnaws it away. Sometimes our irreversible decisions are not our own, and we live the life we were given at birth, whether right or wrong.
Dark, Deep, Compelling, Haunting, Intense, Cryptic. These words describe this poem, because we have "exchanged one darkness for another," in our short, lonely, and desolate lives. But regardless tho, I agree with Amy and echo that this poems rocks. Thanx for sharing this with us, Macey.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Nothing really cryptic here!
During the extent of my life, especially when I was a professional musician flying all over hells half acre, I would run into many people that had made pacts with the devil. Life will take everyone through dark seasons where most become utterly confused, frustrated, despondent, and desirous of something "better" never realizing that there are eternal consequences to all of our choices.
Free will, what a mighty sword to bear!
I will quote from Edgar Allen Poe.
The first stanza of the DOOMED CITY.
Lo . . . death has reared himself a throne
In a strange city lying alone
Far down within the dim west
Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best
Have gone to their eternal rest
There shrines and palaces and towers
Time eaten towers that tremble not
Resemble nothing that is ours
Around, by lifting words forgot
Resignedly beneath the sky, the melancholy waters lie.
Being purposely abstract might seem cool, but I believe that readers coming away edified and enriched is a much loftier goal.

My Bitch (Poetry) - 10/8/2005 6:37:05 AM
So many thruths to view and the strike in words, like this drag of line, a clever format, a hard noise in voice to present, proof in reflection, lead in to end, a harsh for the final conclution, angels, I think not, more a friend.. Great write.. Walt
The Rejection Letter is My Shepherd (Poetry) - 9/5/2005 3:35:25 AM
I heard of someone who use to collect all the rejection letters she got. Then when she got a great job sent each and everyone a pro-forma letter stating that she rejected them as she had found the perfect job she was looking for. Seems the confusion that followed was well worth the laugh. As she got lots of letters of appology. Even a few lame offers of work...
I loved the use of the Biblical Psalm. Great design and well worth the read. Hope to read more of your poetry in the near future...
Dark Lover (Poetry) - 8/6/2005 12:04:05 PM
The strongest lines of your poem were in the last stanza. I particularly liked the line about, "Yet any guards who will enter will be fools who meet a bloody fate." It was a great read. I, too, enjoy a bit of horror and fantasy, although I often focus a bit more on science fiction. Well done! --Joe :-)
Dark Lover (Poetry) - 7/10/2005 12:48:19 PM
a story in poetic form, you have a way with the language and with imagery, you set this up wonderfully!
My Bitch (Poetry) - 7/10/2005 12:47:01 PM
a striking use of the term in its real context, you certainly made a strong case for a change in designation.

I do so agree that they should be called Angels, Macey. This is such a wonderful tribute to a friend who will give her life to save yours if she can. I have three such Angels, Macey. Rowdy (male), age 8 Shadow (spayed female), age 9, and Princess (spayed female) age 13. Even when we are there, and they senses we are sad for some reason, they are all there, by our side. Another thing I disagree with is, calling us their "owners". They are our friends, our confidants, our joy in times of stress, or sadness. I do not "own my Angels, they are just family members with four legs. And because I sleep downstairs, they sense I am not right health wise, and on of them, or all three will sleep by my bed. It is such a comfort, to see them return love and affection, and you can believe that Rowdy does live up to his name (giggles). Thnx for sharing this wonderful tribute Macey. May the Lord Jesus bless you and yours, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little den sister, Barbie
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY Macey

Nice poem. Really enjoyed it. I can take issue saying:
My bitch is bigger than yours.
My bitch yells, fights and bites.
Please enjoy yourself.

Awww, the pooch is cute. Nice poem which goes with the photo. I have a black lab but never thought of writing a dog into my work. Especially into a shark story.

That is just funny as hell. You should write a story off this making the rejection letter a monster in a horror story. I can relate to the whole rejection letter thing because that infamous story got me not only rejected from Chizine but banned.

Never been rejected yet, but i surly will, just hope I'm never rejected by the only one who really matters..
Dark Lover (Poetry) - 8/17/2004 3:10:27 AM
Blimey thank god for shrek....

My old priest..RIP..used to say if only humans would be more like dogs.
They do have unconditional love...
My Bitch (Poetry) - 7/25/2004 8:41:21 PM
Your last line is so true, I actually have a cat now and I love him fiercely but a dog is probably the more 'faithful' of the species. Your devotion to your sweetie is priceless.
I will have to check out your House of Horror too, I love horror films and writers, I am not very good at it but love to read it. I hope that you have much success in your literary journey.
Wishing you all the best, JC xoxoxo

Your bitch is about as different from a "bitch" as one can get. A great tribute to your canine friend. Love and peace to you. Regis

You never know what they are thinking, but only know that whatever it is, it doesn't concern you.

I just luv this poem Macey !!!
Speaks volumes for your love and devotion to Angel!!!

Nice little epic you got going here. Thank you for making me feel I am not the only one who could pull off a macabre epic. Vampirism in poetry is tough to play around with, you did a nice play off this. I am influenced greatly by King, but even more so by H.P. Lovecraft. You have traces of Bram Stoker in this poem.
My Bitch (Poetry) - 7/8/2004 1:06:21 PM
They are true examples of acceptance and unconditional love!
My Bitch (Poetry) - 7/8/2004 12:39:04 PM
A great name would be, "FRIEND."

They are more human than humans, these bitches.
I truly believe that in many cases, they truly are. Hope yours watches over you for a very long time. I had one that literally saved my life; Some of these 'bitches' are 'angels' indeed.

Yes we have and are all going through this. Rejection frequency seems to be the norm among publishers. Persistance and perserverance are the main ingredients to success. Well done.
Dark Lover (Poetry) - 7/6/2004 4:19:42 AM
Very well done. I love the dark write. I'm an avid King fan and have all his books. Your biography shows you have set a very high standard for yourself. I wish you all the best in the world and will definitely be looking for your name among future greats.

Love "it leadeth me beside a still bank account". Very cute. I never thought of wallpapering the bathroom with them. Hmmm. Do you give 'em a polyurethane coat or just let them go au natural?
