(1) this book is going to surprise anyone familiar with my crime fiction

(2) this will be the best allegorical fable/horror novel dealing with weeds which might or might not be world-destroying monsters that you'll read all…

Shane Briant Worst Nightmares

Goodreads for me has been a fun and exciting place. Shane Briant was nice enough to friend me there, and because of that I learned of his novel. I have to admit right from the

get go I was a bit taken aback by the whole thing. It is an unusual novel

filled with so many different elements; it is difficult for me to tell you it

fits this genre or that. That I think is the beauty of the novel.

Worst Nightmares is a major roller…

Guest Post Q & A with Rick R. Reed

I have read one of your novels, what made you get into the paranormal genre?

I have always had a fascination for things that go bump in the night. Whether its ghosts, werewolves, vampires or the far-scarier real things human beings do to one another, fear is an element of life that

fascinates me, along with obsession. I guess those two things led me into

writing horror/paranormal fiction. Plus, I spent my childhood watching…

Guest Post Q & A with Mark Coker Founder of Smashwords

When did the light bulb go on for you that held the Smashwords idea?

I don't recall it as a single light bulb moment. More like one of those dimmer lights that slowly gets brighter and brighter. In my case, the light got brighter as I realized how broken the traditional book

publishing industry had become from the perspective of authors who wanted to

publish, and readers who wanted the freedom to read the greatest diversity…

Kindle Sale

The price on the Kindle version of The Troubleshooter has been reduced to $2.99. The Troubleshooter was not the first Hannibal Jones novel published, but it was the first I wrote. It finally reached publication as a "prequel" to Blood and Bone, but it really is the book that should be read first. And now it's available at a really nice…

The Stuff of LIfe

I get irritated by them: those things I have to do when I would rather be writing. Yesterday it was shopping for home improvement items. In the north woods, where we live, buying large ticket items means a one-hour drive to a town that has stores in it. Yes, I get to eat at the Chinese restaurant (we don't have one of those, either), but it is a wasted day...well, except for the new refrigerator, freezer, bathroom remodeling stuff and five t-shirts I found on sale in a rainbow of… Continue

Another One Bites The Dust?

From JA Konrath to Lee Goldberg, established authors are dipping their toes in the ebook stream in ever increasing numbers, seeing how the waters feel.

And then…

Stephen Jay Schwartz Boulevard

I have read so many novels that involve Los Angeles’s Parker Center that I feel as if I have been there many times. Boulevard is another one of those detective stories that revolves around it and all the infighting and

politics that go along with it. Before you click away though, understand that

Stephen Jay Schwartz has penned a very good debut novel that has a very warped

twist to it. For some reason the novels that I have posted on for this week
