Be a Part of a Life-Changing Event: "Maynard Soloman Proves Santa is Real"

This could be the most significant few sentences of your entire life. One that will blow everything you thought about being human on this planet out of…

KBL: Kill Bin Laden: A Novel Based on True Events John Weisman

Reading a book you already know the ending of before you start I think lends to a bit of trepidation. I had a little bit. I mean I have read other novels by the author, enjoyed his style, enjoyed the substance, have had many good experiences so why not right?

I have to say he nails this, from the first page to the last, he struck every chord, hit every note, and made a recount of events seem as real and visceral as if I was there, watching it all unfold in my face. The tales of…

Col Bury "Manchester 6"

 

Admission I need to make before we go any further: I really had no idea that “flash fiction” could be this much fun before I got to read work from Darren Sant, Luca Veste, Sue Mydliak,  McDroll, and now Col Bury (hopefully I didn’t leave anyone out, if I did excuse me, sorry).

I am not sure what possess an author to try to tell a story in such a short word count, but for these people it works and works well. I am not just curious but totally enthralled when I read this stuff.…

R. Thomas Brown, author of "Old Man Coyote", Guest Post

Genre

 

One of the difficult things for me when describing my work (either when self-publishing or when querying an agent or publisher) is to place it within a genre. My stories play with crime, some elements of noir, but not all-in in most cases. I include the supernatural when the story feels right, but it’s not quite horror, but doesn’t feel much like dark…

McDroll "Kick It"

I think the title should have just been “Kick A$%”. This grouping of flash fiction is in your face and fast paced. There is a very good reason why this title has been charting on Amazon Kindle UK literally within hours of its release, it is that good. The characters are rich, the prose is just to the point, punch you in the gut tight, and the speed at which McDroll delivers the action is blinding. I for one am a fan and a reader won over, no questions asked.

Here is the synopsis and…

Veterans Day

Today I want to remind you that this nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. That freedom is never free. And that we often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. Let's make sure our veterans never feel their sacrifices are taken for granted.

How To Write A Crime Fiction Anthology

You are all familiar with anthologies. Maybe you love them, maybe you hate them, or maybe you are on the fence about them. Nevertheless, you are familiar with them. But haven’t you ever wondered about how an anthology is put together from an editing author who is undergoing that process this very moment?

Most often an anthology is put together this way: the editing author picks a theme, requests submissions, chooses their…

Benjamin Sobieck “Maynard Soloman and the Job Nabbin' Illegal Immigrants”

I don’t know at times what to say about this series by Benjamin Sobieck. Maynard Soloman is so funny, his views so skewed,  and his politics so out there, that one can only help but laugh their butt off when reading this.

True Story: I was reading this on my Kindle waiting to pick up my youngest daughter at school. I was laughing so hard reading the bonus material, the recipe for Maynard’s Hamburgers, that I was getting those sideways glances. I really didn’t care; sometimes you just…
