Review: The Two Johns

Once again, Mr. Gelati is rather generous with his words about my words. Today

he reviews The Two Johns. This is my first entry for Trestle Press's Author's

Lab series. I had an excellent time working with Giovanni and he had some things

to say about my work.



"Reading the work is like watching a skilled

mechanic go about his business..." from Gelati's Scoop.

Sam Lang "Two Johns" The Author's Lab/Collaboration series

I think you may have heard me say many times on my blogtalk radio show The G-ZONE that Sam Lang is: “one sick puppy”. Now I say that in the best possible way because what Sam Lang writes is horror, and he writes it rather well, maybe too well. He has a penchant for cranking up the tension, raising the suspense level and also for having a very dry, cutting sense of humor. When you combine all those qualities, I think that makes for some goose bumps and really good horror reading.…

Darren Sant "Community Spirit" Volume 2 The Longcroft Estate series

Last week I was lucky enough to speak with Darren Sant, the author of “Flash of Revenge” and “The Longcroft Estate” series on my blogtalk radio show The G-ZONE.  I will include the link for that down below for you to enjoy. It was a nice interview and very telling. Why telling? For me it is very simple and the answer obvious if you get to know Darren at all: he is a really nice guy; his intentions are good, and he cares about his readers. Each of the digital short stories he has published…

Robert Ford "Love Stories" from The World of Hek series & a Quandry

A very interesting thing happened on the way to getting this novella sized work published: we could not get a consensus on the cover art. What do I mean by that? The story goes like this: I made two covers for Robert Ford to select from, and he liked both of them; he really couldn’t decide. The decision was made to put them up on our social networks and see what you the people thought about them, maybe something would shake out. Nothing did but great comments. It was split 50% to 50% after…

Commitment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Imagine being in the University-having slept early only to be woken up by that annoying alarm-that is to rouse your room mate, who's snoring like she lives in a world without sound!

Just when I thought my day wouldn't get crazier-I had to do laundry because the Hostel caretatkers-play around with the taps, so we get water once or twice a week!

Then...I read an interview that was…

B.R. Stateham "Three Deadly Sins"

Keeping up with the “Call Me Smitty” series has been a real pleasure for me. I guess that is a funny thing to say about reading about an assassin or hitman right? The pleasure in it is not the carnage and death, the ethical questions it brings up, the constant ponderings as to whether Smitty is a good guy or a bad guy, but in the ability of the author. B.R. Stateman’s unique ability to craft a story, to draw me in, to get inside my head and make me ask those questions time and time again.…

Marketing: Luck or Good Judgement

I’ve been pushing my book down various avenues in the last few months and overall been quite disappointed with the results. Everything in life is a learning curve and it does take a while to see what gets results and what doesn’t.
Here are some of the things that have brought success and what hasn’t.
1)      Book Signings – This was tricky at first but now worked out the secret to getting this right. First thing I’ve learnt is that book stores like to do signings…

Another Anniversary Reached and one Totally Intense, Insane, Incredible, and Important Giveaway! Every Trestle Press Author wants YOU as a reader!

About 6 months ago I had a caller, Katherine LaHart, on my blogtalk radio show The G-ZONE call in and suggest that I do a collaboration. Personally I was floored; really, this was the last thing that I thought anybody would ask me that day. I sure didn’t wake up with that thought on my mind. Since then we, various authors and Trestle Press, have produced 22 installments of the series covering just about every genre possible except romance. Let’s face it, with names like Harry Balls, Peter…

One of my short stories- The Funeral

In this story, i'm sorry for all of the spelling and grammar mistakes. When I am in the moment and writing my best works, i dont care, i just write. Thank you for taking the time for reading! i really appreciate it. This is The Funeral:

 

"Sweetheart, are you okay?"



"Yeah I'm fine" I replied after being broken out of my daydream. In truth I was not fine. A million different emotions roiled in my body. I didn’t understand. My mind won’t let me understand. If it did…

My First Book Signing Event

I recently attended my very first book-signing event. It took place at Waterstones bookseller in Crewe, Cheshire in the North of England. I did not know what to expect so I was faintly nervous but approached it with an open mind. I would surely sell some books, even if no one came specifically to see me. I had been publicizing it widely in local newspapers and on the Internet so I was hopeful.

 

As it was, I sold 6 books. This may not sound like a lot, but for an unknown author…

J.E. Seymour "Pale Horse"

“Pale Horse” is not a story that has anything to do with Native Americans, no, instead it is the beginning of a new detective series from J.E. Seymour. Tracey Greene is the reluctant private investigator and she knows horses and the stables. That is a good thing because almost the entire digital short story is set in and around a horse race track in New Hampshire. As I read the story I could smell the stables and hear the horses, well at least those that were alive.

Tracey Greene is…

Look who I ran into

Ran into these goats as I making my way around the city. They were being taken to a goat market, at Allsopps-wonder what they thought of me?
