What people are saying
With The Demonic Diaries, author Eve Harms gifts us with gothic fiction befitting our doomed 21st century. Cool, smartly-researched lore and a protagonist who, try as she might, can’t stay out of supernatural trouble, Eve’s series promises fun and delivers it.
A fun series – Kendra’s quirky narrative voice makes the pages fly by, and Eve Harms makes the most of intensive, enthralling research. Compulsively readable – demons and possession with a side of humor.
From reader reviews on Amazon and Goodreads
“Told as a series of blog posts, Kendra Temples’ novella is at turns irreverent, deeply personal, disturbing, and nail-biting.”
“Fresh. Witty. Intriguing. Thrilling. The Secret Name pulls you in with a clear and concise writing voice, and an unraveling mystery. For every breadcrumb of information provided, there is another question needing answered; propelling you down an occult rabbit hole.”
“This is the first book EVER that I read that’s horror and I must say it’s f***ing creepy, cool, but creepy. Two thumbs up.”
Working in a creepy mansion surrounded by old books is kind of my dream job, but this might be too creepy—even for me. They asked weird interview questions like “Have you ever seen a dead body”, I swear I heard a woman screaming last night, and I’m sure the owner is hiding something—like why he hired me as a librarian in the first place.
But I can’t quit now. If I miss rent again my boyfriend will finally kick ol’ broke Kendra (me) to the curb and into hobodom. Plus, it’s great inspiration for my writing. I just hope I don’t end up starring in a gothic horror story of my own… Anyways, I’ll update y’all here in my blog.
If you like a quirky heroine facing inexplicable horror, then read The Secret Name today!

Have you guys ever practiced black magick? Well, your girl Kendra might have done a teensy spell. I doubt it’ll amount to much. It was just for research for the book I’m writing—the one that’s sure to be a bestseller, and help me get out of this podunk town. If I can ever finish it, anyway. Teaching creative writing to 5th graders in a church basement isn’t exactly inspiring, so I’ve been telling them horror stories to shut them up and get my creative juices flowing. Nothing more inspiring than children’s screams.
What am I doing? Witchcraft? Scaring children? I hope no one who knows me reads this blog, or I might just get run out of town.
