The Canasapian Chronicles: Moonseekers ~ Chapter One

(All I ask for is an honest review, what it lacks, what you like. Y'know, and thanks for your time!) 


"Sara! Sarabella! It's me, Cassie. Wh-what's happening to me?!" A strange image of the moon reflecting in a puddle in a wolf paw in the mud made Sarabella wake with a start. She rolled over in bed and looked at her alarm clock. It read 4:30 A.M. Sara sighed and ran a hand through he hair. What was happening to her and her friends?

It all started in the forest…

So, err, I was gone for over a year. Totally my bad. I still write, but I suppose I just haven't been as active on the sight, because I haven't been quite as active in my writing as I'd like to be. But along with my English classes I've been perfecting my writing. (Or at least, I'd like to think so.) My blogs about Conner Carson, (Which by the way, I've changed the spelling to Connor. Why? I'm not really sure.) are sort of out-dated. I've been perfecting that. As for my other story, Sky Pack.… Continue

Cleveland W. Gibson Guest Post

"I read Dracula when I was only thirteen and at school. Since those days the paranormal genre has changed, and for the good. The twist and turns and the bringing of two different words together and the sharing of life between humans and vampires has brought good content to this type of story.

In the story by Laurie Bowler I read about the tribulations of a young mother off to carve out a new career and life for herself in Abu Dhabi. Do vampires exist out there ? Is it not sand , sun…

J. Evan Johnson Guest Post

I am amazed at the amount of people who don’t have dreams. No, I don’t mean I shouldn’t have ate that burrito last night kind of dream. I mean those dreams that keep us going, those dreams that keep us pushing for more each day. I am floored to hear people almost settle for things in their nine to five jobs as if that is all they are. I’m starting to think that society has pressured many of us into thinking of our means of survival as the actual dream, primarily because of how our economic…

Sullen Boy (The Pearl)



That pretty, sullen boy always sits on the concrete wall;

His gray coat and jeans blend him into the background.

There's no one around to claim him as their own,

Just cold and dreary space, like winter clouds.

I stop, and dare to look into his forest colored eyes.


I ask him boldly "Why are you alone, sullen boy?

Do you like the silence of your own world?

Can you not abide us lower beings?"

He doesn't smile,…

There is a nagging question

An uneasy set of words that are mumbling at my lips

They jumble and don’t come out orderly

Will I be able to say so it can be answered?

Do I want it to be?

“Just say it!”

I yell at myself.

I fumble again

I grunt with frustration

Tears wield up and I walk away

The nagging question

Now turns to what ifs

Turning to bitter regrets falling from my…

Butterfly Haze

Walking through a haze of wings,
The black and violet ill at ease.
A face in every dot and line;
They dazzle me, the butterflies.

Blinded by a cloud of wings,
My trembling heart is ill at ease,
And tender brushes feel so mean;
Deception’s iridescent sheen.

Drowning in a swarm of wings,
My crawling skin is ill at ease.
Defeated now, I close my eyes;
They’ve eaten me, the butterflies.

For the writer who wants to learn a bit more about writing.

This is just a quick shout out to those of you who, like me, know they need a little more schooling on the subject of writing before they actually write a book, and who don't really feel college is right for them. It may not be for everyone, but it's an option; right now I'm in the middle of taking Penn Foster's Freelance Writering course, and I have learned a LOT already.  Two of my family members have also done Penn Foster courses, and so I've seen that it's a extreamly helpful coraspondance… Continue

Digital short Saturday Cody Toye Operation Blackout: Dribbles The Squirrel


I love the squirrels on the cover of these stories, great stuff. But for me what is even better is the stuff inside. Cody Toye is a very talented author. He writes in many different genres and covers many different age groups. Right now he has in no particular order: The Toye Box Collection of children’s stories, Zorza the Alien a YA sci-fi series, Dribbles, and a new sci-fi series Intangibles. The last one is not one I would share with the little ones; it is dark and violent. My…

Digital short Saturday H.R. Toye Debtor's Chip /Frederick

I have a friend and fellow author at Trestle Press, Cleveland W. Gibson, willing to step in and give his two cents on H.R. Toye’s newest release in The Debtor’s Chip series, Frederick. Cleveland is the author of the digital short stories Remains, Only The Best and the soon to released Indian Rope Trick. Personally I think this series is a winner, even though the characters seem like losers. Here is what Cleveland thinks about Frederick:

“The story 'Debtor's Chip'  by HR Toye is an…

Digital short Saturday U.R. Mine Cheers

Good morning on this fine Saturday. Maybe you think I am tired or not with it, but yes, this is the author’s name and the title: U.R. Mine/Cheers. It rolls off the tongue and is cute. Hopefully we will hear a lot from this author as I enjoyed the story. I want to get right to it so is what is between the virtual covers:

“Author U.R. Mine tugs at you heart and soul with this intense and touching digital short story. Have you been married? Are you married? Are you thinking of getting…

Serena Embracing Darkness Laurie Bowler

Vampires, Vampires, Vampires. Are you getting the hint here? Laurie Bowler delivers a full length novel that is deep, dark and brooding. What exactly does she have in the pages of this totally moving and suspenseful tale of woe?

“Serena finds herself thrown into the dark world of the dead;  her own maker had killed himself shortly after biting her. Leaving her unconscious and unaware of the monster she'd become, her only clue to his identity was the relic he'd left behind, the one…

Werner Lind The Gift

I am surprised that someone actually had to suggest to me that I read this. I had read it, loved, and being the genius that I am thought I had already posted on it. But, low and behold, I had not .Go figure! I need to talk about this digital short story, because it rocks flat out. But let’s hold our horses here for a minute. Yesterday on my blogtalk radio show ,The G-ZONE, I had Big Daddy Abel on and we had a blast, going from one subject to another including getting into a debate on where…

Paul Levine Flesh & Bones


Hopefully I can get this right, because believe me I want to, on so many levels. First to just get this out of the way, this novel just flat out ROCKS! Now I have had the pleasure and honor of interviewing Paul Levine on my blogtalk show The G-ZONE last week. I know I mentioned this yesterday in my John Locke/Vegas Moon post, but the reason I point this out yet again is this: The guy’s voice, as smooth, kind and silky as it is, was in my head the entire time I was pressing the…

Spotlight Interview with author Jeremy Vaeni


Q1: Thanks for participating in our Spotlight Interview series! Please introduce yourself and your book to help our readers get to know you.

John Locke Vegas Moon


Hey, the guy keeps pumping them out and my Kindle keeps getting giddy with delight that he is. Truly amazing! I read a number of character driven series, but already, John Locke has secured a spot at the top of my list. He just keeps cranking them out, and they get better and better and better. But let’s put the brakes on this love fest for a minute and give you guys an update on a few things in the world of G. Tomorrow I am posting on Paul Levine’s Flesh & Bones, an oldie but…
