Guest author: Kevin Cooper ~ Miedo “Afraid”

Miedo ‘Afraid’ contains both of the volumes of the Miedo story:

Miedo: Living Beyond Childhood Fear & Miedo 2: A Reckoning With Fear.

After losing his mother at a very young age, Miedo begins to experience a plethora of paranormal/supernatural incidents.

As Miedo comes into young adulthood, he searches for answers to his past. Rather than finding answers, he is left with more questions as a plethora of paranormal experiences occur in his life once again…

Amazon Review by Claudine Giovannoni:

“All good things must come to an end”

The book tells a true story of a painful past that emerges from the depths of time, which continues to prick the memory of the man who recounts his childhood.
A novel that touches the heartstrings, rattling arcane emotions, in pure and naked sincerity dictated by the need to rework trauma and patterns that have influenced dramatically a life.

The author rewinds the time as if it were a ball of wool defeat from an old sweater. There are knots, ends tied after the thread is broken… wounded in the most intimate. Other times, the thread appears thin, slim and fragile, almost a metaphor of the moments where the mere fact of “being alive” appears as a condition of punishment.
The author takes us by the hand, accompanying us to meet the places of his childhood tormented by dark and devastating presences.

In the garden of the grandparents, the particularity of a sour apple fall from the tree prematurely, and sugar bowl given to him by his grandmother for dipping the fruit and make it sweeter. On the other hand, the memories of the taste of a chocolate mint “After Eight”, carefully removed from the tin bottle-green colour.

The feeling of an insect that walks on his arm, the sadness of knowing that if a bumblebee stings you then he dies… Many small detailed descriptions that enrich the reader with sensations simple and so purest to make you reconnect with your own childhood.

The deep affection of the child towards his grandparents, to mitigate his great fear of the present and of the apparitions that at night arise in front of his bed. Then there are the plots and family intrigues, pettiness of both sisters Liz and Chloe… other characters that come and go from the story, distant sounds of panaceas to the suffering that was always lurking.

Then a new change, the author is separated by his grandparents and is living in a new environment, a cold and lifeless house, everything he loved had been taken away… without notice… without asking him what he wanted. “All good things must come to an end.”
Then the presence of true friends, and those supposed, met at school or at work, or the meeting with deep Faith, will lead the author to new and radical changes.

“Suffering is mostly caused by fear, not by the circumstances themselves, but by my response to them”. Jan Frasier

But I will not reveal more of the 440 pages that certainly will be anchoring you, making you a participant in the most intimate, making you even cry tears of bitterness.
A very good novel, honest and unfussy, which will certainly make the reader ponder!”
