Lee Pletzers The Armeggeddon Shadow

I am pretty sure that I have title correct with the two g’s and the two d’s. Different title, different novel. I ran into Lee Pletzers over at Book Town, a nice place and a nice community. Go to my blog and press the button for it and join, give it a whirl and have some fun. Back to the novel at hand: threw me a curve amongst all the conspiracy theory, action novels I have been reading of late. This is a sci-fi, paranormal, horror, and few other categories. Just file it under good if you are…

Laurie Bowler in The Author's Spotlight

 

When it comes to vampires, Laurie Bowler knows her stuff. She has numerous titles under her name, including: Moonrising, Serena Embracing Darkness, The Across The City Series, Vanquished, The Depths of Darkness to name a few. I am starting to work with her on an Author’s Lab/Collaboration called Fang’s Inc. which will be released in the coming weeks. Laurie has a very distinct style and there is a ton of heart and soul in her novels. I am not trying to be flip…

Joseph Finder Buried Secrets

I have been having a hard time trying to figure out how to start this post. I enjoyed the novel on so many different levels and for so many different reasons I think I would become boring rather quickly by listing them all. I am also amped over this novel because I get to talk to Joseph Finder June 14th@11amEST on my blogtalk radio show The G-ZONE. Questions for the man, yeah I have a few. The marketing campaign has been fun, innovative and different and the novel was highly…

Thomas White in The Author's Spotlight

I have gotten to know Thomas White over a period of time; he is a really nice guy with a very sharp wit. If you read any of his writing, you come to realize that very quickly. He has been nice also to give me some pointers on the craft of writing as I have worked with him on “G.S.I. Gelati Scoop Investigations Psychotic Detectives”. His words were pointed but I expected no less; he meant well and they weren’t malicious, just trying to speak the truth, and set a beginner straight. Trust me,…

WHEN THE DAY OF LOVE IS OVER

If I say I love you, it is for a day.

It was for a moment when i said "hey! this is true love".

On that festive February, I gave you jewelry;

But it is now a memory.



Now the day of love is over, please my love let us take cover.

I didn’t only love you thence; but I am ‘loving’ you hence.

To ‘love’ is for an instance; but ‘loving’ is for a distance.

It is eternity, it is infinity.

It is a decision for a mission if I say I am ‘loving’ you.

Until my soul… Continue

Narrative-ly Speaking Chantal Boudreau

Narrative-ly Speaking

By Chantal Boudreau

Choosing what voice you are going to use is an important part of the planning process in fiction writing. Normally, I hate writing in first person. I don’t think I’m very good at it, and I don’t think that I necessarily do the narrator proper justice, but sometimes the stories demand it, so I grit my teeth and go. I have a much easier time approaching a tale as observer. I’ve heard several writing peers suggest that writing for them is a… Continue

Camera Shy_June 2011

For the life of me, I cannot understand why I continue to pay the fees for Craft Shows when I barely make table.  (That's the cost you've got to pay just to be AT the show.)

 

The reason for wanting to work with my hands is because I believe my writing isn't 'good enough' for publication.  I've been writing my entire life, mostly in personal journals no one ever sees.  In those rare instances I've allowed a piece of me to escape, many are impressed.

 

A friend…

Tom Sumner All I Wanted Was A Haircut #4

I am a fan of Tom’s work. I enjoy his take on things and his ability to present them. I think that when someone is trying to be funny, face to face or in a group setting where eye contact can be made or body language can be seen is one thing. The humor is then three dimensional, or if you subscribe to Big Daddy Abel’s thoughts four dimensions, go figure, but who am I to argue. Back to my point, Tom Sumner has a way with words and can execute the punch lines in writing. He hammers home his…

Steve Hamilton Misery Bay

I wanted to end the week with a bang and I chose this novel to start it off.

Let’s get rolling on” Misery Bay”! Here is the synopsis:

“On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree. The other end he ties around his neck. A snowmobiler will find him 36 hours later, his lifeless eyes staring out at the endless cold water of Lake Superior. It happens in a lonely corner of the Upper Peninsula, in a place they call…

Lifeblood Werner Lind

Vampire freaks do I have one for you right here! Have you read any of Werner Lind’s work yet? No, well I am now trying to highlight the man’s hard work. He is also the author of “The Gift” a digital short story that I think you will also enjoy. That too has a vampire element to it. To say that I enjoy the author’s style and substance is an understatement. Here is the synopsis of  “Lifeblood “ :

An anonymous Verse Found Online

"In the east the wind is blowing the boats across the sea

And their sails will fill the morning and their cries ring out to me

 

Oh, the more it changes, the more it stays the same

And the hand just re-arranges the players in the game"

 

Just a verse, found on the web, but I feel its more than this.

Andrew Souza Acceptance

This is a debut novel by a self-published author. Let’s get right into, shall we?

“While serving, Andrew witnessed many interesting places and things, some of which had to be written down. This particular mystery-thriller takes place in Brommer County, Missouri. Where two lawless riders were responsible for all the mayhem and carnage dealt to the nearby communities; their foul actions were done solely out of spite and greed, but unbeknownst to them, their deeds would eventually catch…
