Series, yeah, Trestle Press has those!

I am undoubtedly an oldhead. I can remember so far back that people used to write on stone tablets, animal skins and then on parchment paper. My point in this is that I also remember reading stories like the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, The Executioner, The Death Merchant, Nick Carter and Encyclopedia Brown. Every week when I went to the library I would try to find a new installment in a series I was following and just enjoy it, devour it and look forward to the next or perhaps finding a new one…

I have been away from the internet it seems like forever, but in reality just since last Friday, and in this day and age that is forever isn’t it?

Robert Browne "The Paradise Prophecy"

Just to make sure I touch the bases with this and do this incredible novel justice, I just want to make sure that you know I did have a Q&A with this author on my blog last week. Feel free to hit the archives from last week and enjoy the read, he gave some really good answers to my questions; basically he did the best he could with what I threw at him. He hit all the questions out of the park for home runs; I wanted to post that before my take on his work. I was hoping to gain more…

The Trouble McNasty (An excerpt from "His thoughts, Her Thighs volume 1)

(Sitting in church)…


I really don’t know what’s come over me.  Right now I’m at my

dad’s funeral and I can’t believe that he’s dead.  I’m trying

not to cry right now because I need to be strong.  I am sitting here

with my wife and our 3 children thinking about the day when they will

bury me.  But right now I can’t worry about that.  I can’t show my

children that I’m distraught.  I must…

The Hand of God and My “Status”

Hello everybody! Yes, I am still alive and so are my wife and kids. A “Funny” thing happened on the way to experiencing an earthquake, a hurricane and a tornado all in the span of four days. Why is that “Funny”? Well let’s see, I can really write pages on this subject. In fact I have, and they are in the able hands of Big Daddy Abel the guy that let me jazz with him on “The Edge of Cataclysmic”. The Author’s Lab/Collaboration story just wrote itself for me. I started with the flood we had in…

Paying attention to gut feelings.

Unveiled Emotions:  Hunches, intuitions and promptings are a natural part of the human experience, but what is their purpose and how do they impact us?  Though we often ignore them, we do so at our own risk.  In this fast paced read, the author shows us what can happen when we pay attention and the sometimes devastating effects when we don't.

This new book has also been receiving several surprise reviews online, by word of mouth and through texts.  It is wonderful to see that the…

The Sad Reality....

Just pondering because that is what I do....I ponder.  Some people wonder but for me I ponder.  Anyway, I write this to say that the sad reality of reality lately is living other people's reality.  It's sad, in my opinion, because living and breathing someone else's reality keeps you away from who you are.  I mean I'm so guilty of this.  I'm a living, breathing, if reality tv was crack I would be smoking the hell out of it, reality tv watcher. … Continue

Love Hurts Surprise Book Reviews

I have been speaking to various people about my novel Love Hurts. Being a paranormal romance, it was more than likely going to fall into the category of Young Adult for audience appeal, but that was not my original intention. Indeed, the story content is very adult and I would not recommend it for anyone under the age of 18. I had intended the book for an adult market aged roughly between 18-35, although of course I would not begrudge anyone reading it.

I was greatly surprised to… Continue

A small piece of flash fiction to introduce myself

The setting sun cast a chequer-board pattern across the wooden floor.  Half-seated and half hanging from the ceiling by the stout cords around her wrists that were attached to a heavy bar that ran across the ceiling she panted heavily, head down.  It seemed to her that she could pick out every knot in the wood of the floor, see every tiny crack and the dust motes made almost glorious by the sun’s dying rays.  Then the pain came again, rippling through her body causing… Continue

It's supernatural



'Honey,are you okay?', someone was yelling

....I'm back.... "I'm landing'...

.'Jazz!''Ye-yeah?' I squealed.

'Did you feel alright, sweetie?' mom was asking

'I-I certainly do', I said. I was cluthing the book tightly,' Mom! I just met an alien and you know what! Daedalus-the one who built the labyrinth- told me, he put people into it if they are cruel. Is it true mom?  He will put me in it if I hurt an ant. Won't…

We all want to fall in love. Why?

Because that experience makes us feel completely alive,

where every sense is heightened,

and every emotion is magnified.…

Natasha Deen "What Happens in Vegas"

TGIF my friends, how are you? Looking for batteries, flashlights, bottled water, candles, maybe a good book to curl up with while all the weather comes through? I am going to do something out of order here, not bad for a guy with OCD. Usually as you know I interview the author on my blogtalk show The G-ZONE and then put up the post; I am not doing so this time go figure. I will be interviewing this author, Natasha Deen , next Weds, so tune in for the fun. But I digress yet…
