(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? ...help!" 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…Continue

"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…Continue

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…Continue

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,…Continue

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…Continue

The first anyone heard about this experiment was when I posted it here on March 22. In the last couple of days I have announced even more sales on Facebook so these three titles…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

My new book, Urgency., is a real departure for me. It’s a book that isn’t meant to just be read. It’s here to fundamentally change…

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…Continue
