Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
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…Continue

Welcome to the weekend everybody. Today I am popping in two posts on two totally different types of digital short stories. Later on I will drop one in on Humorist Tom Sumner and his series, “All I Wanted Was a Haircut” . Lets get to Samantha Weiler’s digital short story. She is a Summer Submission Contest Winner with Trestle Press. Personally I enjoyed this story immensely; it has a nice edge to it that I think if you get to download it you will…Continue

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…Continue
Robert Venditti was nice enough to come onto the G-ZONE, my blogtalk radio show, on Weds. June 1st. Here is the link:
Now that that is out of the way, why is it I feel the need to apologize? If you listen in on the broadcast you will find out why, but to give you the long and short…Continue

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 “ :
“All Ana Vasilifata ever wanted was a simple…Continue

I am new to the site. Actually, I've only recently become an "author". That being said, I've always been a writer.
I've been writing stories, songs and poetry for over ten years now and recently completed my first novel, Celestial Mists: Exogenesis. It is available on Kindle and let me tell you a little bit about the book.
"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.

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…Continue

I have had the pleasure to interview the co-authors of “Wicked Good” on my blogtalk radio show The G-ZONE once and Joanne Lewis with Dr. Stephen Shore, a noted Autism & Aspergers expert just last Tuesday on the 24th of this month. Here are the links:

I hope everybody had a nice holiday weekend! They are way too short aren’t they? They start and then, boom, over. Personally I could have used another week or two off. Anyway moving on here, to get back in the swing of things, I have tried to get a good mix of novels and digital short stories rolling here. Later on today I drop in an Author’s Spotlight on Joann Lewis/Amy Faircloth, the co-authors of “Wicked Good”. Later on in the week, Thursday, I will be featuring…Continue

Mary Ellen's mind raced. She couldn't make it to the front door, there was no back door, and no windows on the first floor, but for the ceiling of the ballroom. Upstairs, though...
She ran for the western stairs, adrenaline pushing her to go faster as the monster tore through the house looking for her. Up she ran, heels thudding loudly against the wood, John not far behind her. At the landing, she dashed to the first window she saw in the hall. The drop was too far; she might…Continue
I had to push my husband, Mr.Gelati, away from the laptop for a bit and speak up here. He, and his buddies Vincent Zandri (I always thought you liked me Vince, you seemed so nice), Big Daddy Abel, Thomas White, Benjamin Sobieck and now Thad Brown, some of whom have gone to great lengths to do various things to me in their little stories are up to their antics again. For those that have yet to read one of these “The Author’s Lab/Collaborations”, they are funny but at whose expense? At times…Continue

I am planning on running this new segment on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Author’s Spotlights posts are fun to think about and put together, especially when I have had a chance to actually work closely with the author; that is the case today, so forgive my biased comments. Right off the bat I am going to tell you I enjoy B.R.’s work and have since I pretty much read his first paragraph. The thing about his writing and style though is that it crosses many genres, many styles of taste, and is…Continue

Are you keeping up with us here? They are only going to keep coming at you, fast, funny and with a fury. The authors are really getting their groove on here and coming at me with some intense work. This installment with Thad Brown is full of surprises, laughter, twists and plenty of action. At the heart of it all though is some incredible writing by non-other than Thad Brown. His claim to fame is the The Smoking Gun Sisterhood Series. I strongly suggest that if you read this digital short…Continue

-What made you decide to do this?
Well way back in 1997 I was a double in a movie called I know what you did last summer. The photographer of the movie approached me and asked if he could take a few photos of me. I realized then that I was photogenic. The photographer kept complimenting me and I figured if a professional like this was saying something good , then I knew I must be something. That's where it all began.
-How often do you work out?
