Praise for Alan Draven

“Alan Draven has once again proven himself as a unique voice in the world of horror and suspense fiction with his latest release, NOCTURNAL OFFERINGS, a creepy, unnerving, and often unsettling thriller that is almost impossible to put down.”  –Brandon Ford, author of Splattered Beauty

“I think it is safe to say we can expect big things from this man…big, big things.” –J.B. Kohl, author of Over their Heads

“He brings all the different complex elements together in a intriguing fashion, keeping you glued to the story to see how it evolves from page to page.” –Patrick S. Dorazio, author of Comes the Dark
