Chasing Votes, Not Rainbows


My novella  Look for Me Under the Rainbow  about the killing of harp seal pups in Canada and the group of environmentalists and activists trying to save them is still competing in two contests . It would be a great help if you could spread the word because you can only until October 26  vote for the semi-finals of the AUTHORSdb Cover Contest 2018 for Look for Me Under the Rainbow. This is why it needs as many as possible  VOTES NOW . In another TCK Publishing contest for the book of the year, Look for Me Under the Rainbow is on the second place in YA and Middle Grade category. It needs 48 votes to take the leading position! Do you think we can do it together? Can you help Danny become a lead...

INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES... from Owen Thomas Fiction; Asheville, NC Edition: Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar


INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES: Asheville, North Carolina How long has it been since you supported your local independent bookstore or library? I don’t care what your answer is. However long it has been is much too long. We all need to get out there and show some love for those lonely foot soldiers in the fight against illiteracy, literary apathy, and the threat of complete assimilation by the American zero-attention-span-unless-it’s-a-video-zombie-culture that is taking an ever-greater hold of our society.

Bethany's Sin by Robert R. McCammon

People read stories to fall into the world created by the author. Yes, for a moment they can escape their troubles and be entertained. They regale in the written word even though each will perceive the same story differently. However, every once in a while a story comes along that sticks to their bones invade their souls, and they know that this story will always be a part of us somehow. This is how I felt reading Robert McCammon's Bethany’s Sin.A perfect little town, with a perfect little home, and yet, something evil, ancient, mysterious, and murderous slithers and groans beneath the well-kept streets and lawns of the quiet, quaint town called Bethany's Sin. Manipulating and cultivating, b...

Demon King by Erik Henry Vick

Oneka Falls appeared as tranquil and poised as any other small town, but for a group of boys, this town is housing their town’s worst nightmare. The book bounces between the time when the boys were young, 1979, and when they are men, 2007. While the plot progresses and evolves, the reader is taken through the character’s physical and psychological upheave to the point that they can bodily feel their bones ache.Demon King is a melody of terror, horror, mystery, and suspense one that takes you into the dark side where another sinister species hides in the shadows, or disguised and in plain sight, waiting for the chance, if you are lucky, to feed off your emotions. If not, you are in for an ind...

OWEN THOMAS FICTION REVIEW: "The Book of Moon" by George Crowder


To call “ The Book of Moon” a ‘coming-of-age’ story is to be both accurate and woefully incomplete. George Crowder’s deftly-written chronicle of the Landing family, narrated from the teenage-perspective of its youngest member, Moon (yes, that’s Moon Landing), has all of the hallmarks that one expects to find in a good coming-of-age tale: a young man coming to an ever-broader and more richly meaningful understanding of himself, his family and the world as life throws him one curveball after another. In Crowder’s capable hands, we follow young Moon from one revelatory trial and tribulation to the next, watching him wrestle with his own self-concept within the greater context of his parents’ di...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ANNE RICE from Owen Thomas Fiction


Happy Birthday to Anne Rice, born October 4, 1941. Born Howard Allen Frances O'Brien, Anne Rice has made her name writing gothic fiction, Christian literature and erotica. If you have a bookshelf at home dedicated to Anne Rice then you need to place it prominently for visitors to peruse so they can leave your house having absolutely no idea what to think of you. Rice’s most famous work is, of course, “Interview with a Vampire,” which introduced the world to Lestat, a vampire whose fame is second only to Dracula himself. Now at 77, Rice can claim this bit of wisdom for herself: nothing keeps you feeling young like inventing an insatiable 200+ year-old character to pay off your mortgage and ke...

Do you Wordpress?

I use Wordpress for my website. I like Wordpress.Lately things are moving to a new editor. Gutenberg. I've tried it. It has advantages but... it also has puzzles that I think should be addressed. In 'old' Wordpress it's simple to add an image and move it left or right of text. With Gutenberg this apparently is possible but I haven't figured it out yet. It's supposed to be intuitive, more intuitive than the old editor, but I guess my intuition hasn't caught up yet.Curious if any of you have figured it out yet, or even moved to another platform for your sites.

Saving Ebony: A Nail-Biting Page Turner

It's not often that an author receives a knock-your-socks-off review, at least it's not often for this author. I at least have to share it with someone other than my wife. A great review of Saving Ebony from Richard Devall, author of Old Letters and New Demons: Where History Meets Mystery . James Paddock doesn’t just tell you a story about saving an eight year old’s life from a psychopath. He grabs you by the collar and pulls you in so deep that the chair you’re sitting in disappears and the walls and the floor no longer exist. The only thing that matters is turning the next page and finding out what the bad guys going to try next, and what will the US Marshals, and Rusty and Ariana do in re...

http://missscarlettflame.blogspot.com/2018/09/cover-reveal-from-kitten-to-captive.html

The story begins before the first book in the series and tells of the journey that was undertaken by the first of the submissives to be subjected to the darkness of Charles. Of an innocent girl that is seduced and led to believe that she must allow herself to be thoroughly abused and beaten to prove her love. Of the journey that led to her being found and freed. A testament to the love and trust that she finally found in others in the world of BDSM and bondage. The strength of character that was needed to bring her back from the depths, and into the light once more. Back from soul destroying life of a captive. Back to the playful kitten she was truly meant to be.

 “69”-ing: Does It Satisfy?


On a blog I perused recently, I picked up an interesting tidbit. It’s a practice called "69-ing" and, no, it’s not that 69-ing!  With all the published and self-published books out there in the market these days, hip readers have found a new way to test whether a prospective purchase is worth their money and interest. They flip the book open to page 69 and start reading.  Apparently, the theory is that by page 69 in any work of fiction, the reader should be happily caught up in the story. Thus, if you "cold" read page 69 of a contender and you like what you read, you'll probably enjoy the whole book from the beginning.  Granted, 69-ing as a before-purchase test doesn’t work well for e-books,...
