REVIEWS FOR Hell Night in Hopewell

(see full length reviews on Amazon and Goodreads)

The amount of violence and carnage is mind-blowing, in a deliciously dark way.

I finished this one and let out a satisfied sigh. It's a good one.

--Heather Miller, Author of Knock, Knock

It was a bit gory and graphic, some slasher and a little bit paranormal.

It literally had me tensed up, anxious, on the edge of my seat, trying to finish it to see what would happen.

--Kasey Loftis, Goodreads Reader and Reviewer

It was a well-written, exciting, spine-tingling adventure.

The pace was fast, the dialogue snappy, and I couldn't put the story down.

I probably shouldn't have read it right before I went to sleep, but I just had to see what happened. You need this book!

--Terri Castoro, Amazon Reader and Reviewer

It kept me up reading till late in the night! Definitely a page turner.

I thought the story was going one way and then Jones took it in another I did not see coming!

--Brian C. Coker, Amazon Reader and Reviewer

Let me tell you, it is great! It’s a fun read for any horror fan. The story is interesting and even surprising at times.

I totally recommend it to anyone looking for a good Halloween read.

--Shanna Gilbert, Amazon Reader and Reviewer

Let me tell you, this one is a barnburner. This is a straight up bloody, horror bonanza that any true fan of horror will devour.

--Alex Knudsen, Author of The Nawie and Disappearance at Devil's Churn

What a ride! Very fun, violent, snappy dialogue, back and forth banter with a dash of messed up evil goodness.

--Chad Farmer, Writer/Director of Encounter and Cecil's Girl

I'm literally speechless! The words that come to mind are Genius! Brilliant!
A book that would put Freddy Krueger, Jason (Friday, the Thirteenth, Chainsaw Massacres) anything like them before or after to shame!
Jones, is one hell of a writer! He not only captivates you with his writing and his characters, he keeps you there.

The descriptive scenes, were so vividly written, you can't help but to feel you're right there in the terror of that Halloween night!

I fell in love with the group of seven! They were witty, sassy, talented and fought fast, then had each others back.
This book brought out almost every emotion, I laughed, grew scared, but what struck me most was the epic ending,

I thought I was reading a romance novel! Yes, I cried, reading a horror book, and no it wasn't out of fear.
Kudos Jones, You've taken the horror genre to an entirely different level.

This is horror at it's best! Anyone that thinks they're not into horror, think again and read this book!!

--K.C. Poitras, Author of Unseen and You Taught Me What It Feels Like To Fall In Love

What I was not expecting was how truly twisted this tale gets...but in the best (and goriest) ways possible!

The story is anything but basic as Jones tosses the readers expectations out of the window.

Jones has a particularly descriptive way of writing, and when the red stuff gets flowing and the violence reaches a fever pitch

he leaves no doubt that he is one of the most exciting (and possibly depraved!) writers in the game today.

I mean, things get nasty in ways that will have you reeling. This is a PERFECT quick read to get you in the Halloween spirit,

although it may dampen any plans you may have to visit creepy old sanitariums for some fun.

--Kevin Woods, Filmmaker, Screenwriter, Director and Producer

This was a killer story. Hell Night in Hopewell is aptly named as their night is just that. Hell.

Jones has an incredibly ability to paint a vivid picture of each carefully crafted scene and make you feel as though you are there.

And trust me when I say, Hopewell is not somewhere you want to be! Hell Night in Hopewell will leave you shaking

long after you've finished the final chapter. Do yourself a favor and pick up this book.

--Evan Bond, Author of Echoes of the Past, To The Wolves, Death Can Wait, and Getaway

The title is fitting as Hell rears its sinister head and unleashes itself on a group of actors in the depths of Hopewell Sanitorium.

Jones builds the tension perfectly as you get to know these characters and grow to connect and identify with them,

but when the blood started flowing, I was locked into this entrancing and horrific tale. This is horror of the highest order.
--Lee Bagwell, Screenwriter of Into My Own Hands and The Lives We Lead

REVIEWS FOR Off the Beaten Path


This time around Wofford has written a collection of eight short novellas, all with a foot in various aspects of horror.

Jones has done an excellent job crafting realistic, and likable  characters. I want to mention

the second story, Stranded is a nice body horror story with some truly uncomfortable moments. 

Matthew Vaughn, Author of Hellsworld Hotel and The ADHD Vampire


This is just all so gloriously creepy! You play with the reader’s emotions so well.

Emma O'Connell, Editor (on the stories: The Scuttling and Ten-Penny Nailed)

These stories are so captivating, I couldn't put the book down!

Wofford Lee Jones is a masterful story teller! Bravo! I love the cover art too. It draws you in, just like the stories.

Steve Hodgson


I LOVE THIS SO MUCH – what a horrible (and I mean that with all my compliments) story.

It’s in some ways a very simple premise but you breathed so much life into the simple interactions

between these characters. I was totally immersed. One of the things I really love about your writing

is how you pick up on the dumb but very real conversations we tend to have in daily life.

This just feels like some of the most realistic dialogue ever! It’s great!

Emma O'Connell, Editor (on the story: Off the Beaten Path)

Ten-Penny, a gruesome success story and a must read for anyone thinking of being a bully.

Wow! How you described that transformation...unbelievably believable.

Jeff Van Dyke (on the novella: Ten-Penny Nailed  and Stranded)


It's a behemoth of a novel that is thought-provoking, at times shocking and ultimately emotionally cathartic.

Alex J. Knudsen, Author of The Nawie 

Soul Dreams is incredibly engaging and masterfully written.

It is a wicked fresh take on possession horror filled with relatable characters and shocking twists.

Kevin Woods, Screenwriter/Producer of Survival, Producer of Exhibit A-7

This book left me shook.

Alexandra Hernandez

A well-written revenge thriller peppered with the supernatural.

Matthew Vaughn, Author of 30 Minutes or Less, Parts 1 & 2

Jones creates a story that you just want to keep reading.

He really does a great job at painting a picture that you can see, touch, smell, and hear.

Alex Pearson (Instagram Reader and Reviewer)

The descriptive words put you right in the story.

The character and story play out in your mind to the point you don’t realize you are reading words on a page!

Rochelle Griggs (Reader and Reviewer)

A fun ride with some cool thriller revenge moments and the battle within ourselves and our souls.

Chad Farmer, Writer/Director of The Apology and Seek Refuge

In haunting detail, Wofford weaves a story that takes a journey through the supernatural

yet feels firmly rooted in a reality that will shudder you to the core, all while pulling at your every emotion.

Lee Bagwell, Screenwriter of Into My Own Hands and The Lives We Lead


Thoroughly entertaining. I’m impressed by his writing style.

Gokul Nath G (Instagram Reader and Reviewer)


Scared me to the end.

Kim Fowler, Instagram Review

One of the best books I've ever read.

Deborah Arledge

REVIEWS FOR my story,

Don't Turn Your Back on Halloween inGore, A Halloween Anthology

Motivation is clear... people who don't honor Halloween the right way die a very, very, gruesome death.

I actually put down the book for several days thinking the rest would be as visceral and gory as this one.

Vanessa Krauss, Author of One Aon Fatality
