Blood Cure by K.R. Willis

Brilliantly Imagined Paranormal Universe This is my first foray into the paranormal genre, and BOY am I glad I took the plunge! Willis has an extremely vivid imagination and a talent for building suspense and creating an intriguing universe. Keira Blackwater lives in a world where vampires and werewolves have been normalized into society since the government established rights for paranormal's in the 1970s. In practice, these rights are fragile truces at best, a somewhat extreme allegory of modern society. Keira is unique in that her blood can be used to “cure” paranormals back into human form. A small industry has developed around the collection and distribution of her blood. When paranorma...

Getting even more personal with Kealan Patrick Burke


Born and raised in a small harbor town in the south of Ireland, Kealan Patrick Burke knew from a very early age that he was going to be a horror writer. The combination of an ancient locale, a horror-loving mother, and a family full of storytellers, made it inevitable that he would end up telling stories for a living. Since those formative years, he has written five novels, over a hundred short stories, six collections, and edited four acclaimed anthologies. In 2004, he was honored with the Bram Stoker Award for his novella The Turtle Boy. Kealan has worked as a waiter, a drama teacher, a mapmaker, a security guard, an assembly line worker at Apple Computers, a salesman (for a day), a barten...

Getting personal with Damian Clark

😊
I was born in Pennsylvania in 1975. Life as a Marine brat was fun and full of new people and places. My imagination was always my greatest gift and weakness, hard to pay attention when your off saving the world. I enjoy a good story though, and had a lot of fun writing. I also enjoy great music of all types, a little song, a little dance and a lot of romance. If you’re not having fun, you are only alive. For more fun with the book visit http://damianjclark.weebly.com and enjoy the soundtrack. The music adds to the steamy scenes.   Please help me welcome Damian Clark to Roadie Notes………   1. How old were you when you first wrote your first story? A: I started my first full story as a book in 2...

The Day the Music Died: Susan Lynn Solomon

I can only think of one word. One word that best describes this book, its characters, and this story. Charming. This entire book struck me as so charming, I couldn't help but think of my late mother as I read it. Why? Because she loved a mystery. She was always watching shows like Murder She Wrote, Cagney and Lacey, and the like. This Emlyn Goode mystery would have fit right in. The meddlesome citizen, friends with the police, and seemingly better at solving murders than the pro's are.  It's such a great read. It grabbed me on the first page, and made me curious about the other books in this series that I haven't read.  This novelette is well worth the read, and I highly recommend it if you ...

Blackwater Burning by Elle Marlow

She's done it again. In this short western romance, Marlow transports us back into the old west. Right on page one you are dropped into a time machine and suddenly find yourself in the dusty past with a woman kidnapped and held hostage for months by a crazy man, with only her sharp wit to keep her alive.   This was a fast, short read. I found myself wishing that this one were longer, as I have in the past with Marlow's works. I've read 2-3 now and I have yet to be disappointed.  She has a sublime skill for creating a world that feels real, and characters that you can connect with. You will find yourself falling in love right along with this one. It's not an easy task for a writer to have the...

I'll say this right off the bat. I just love Damien in these books. We get to see his sexy side in book two, and I'll just say...drool!

Getting personal with Wade H Garrett


Wade H. Garrett is an American novelist specializing in the extreme-horror genre. He was born and raised in Texas, and currently resides in Central Texas. Wade uses extreme violence and the most abhorrent and disturbing combination of visceral words to get his point across. He pushes the boundaries of human torment and suffering, and his books should only be read by the seasoned extreme-horror reader. Many of Wade’s fans have said his books are original, thought-provoking, and some of the most graphic literature they’ve ever read. Wade’s writing can be very technical and detailed at times. This is a reflection of life experiences combined with his technical knowledge and abilities. He sells ...

Enshrine by Kay Bennson

I really enjoy a good romance. While historical books aren't usually my thing, I really love this time period, always have.  In some ways this book was a re-telling  of a story that's been done. Young beauty in a small village is taken captive by a king. But my friends, that's where the similarities stop.  There was nothing about this book that was "done" as they say. It was new and fresh and a page turner.   Bennson had a way of almost making me like the "bad guy" king in the beginning, even though I knew that I wasn't supposed to. He was dark and mysterious and a twisted kind of sexy, even though you sort of hate him.  A tiny piece of you almost roots for him as you read, until the even mo...

The Executioner book one : Ana Calin

This book caught my interest from page one.  I was able to read through it in a matter of two to three days. The writing was great, well balanced. I loved the way it flowed and how the plot unfolded.  (No Spoilers here, LOL. You have to read it!) I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the whole super human genetics thing, but honestly, I loved it and I can't wait for book two.   When I read romance, I'm pretty particular.  I hate books that are chocked full of sex just for the sake of sex, or romance with no plot. Don't get me wrong, sex doesn't bother me. I write sex myself in my books. I felt that this book was the perfect balance of plot and sexy with a spectacularly sexy ending that leads you ...

Getting personal with Javan Bonds


YOUNG AUTHOR OVERCOMES THE CHALLENGES OF MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY TO EXPLORE THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE HUNTSVILLE, AL – Like many young writers, Javan Bonds dreams almost daily of the apocalypse – usually one populated by the walking dead.

He was 13 years old when he became wheelchair-bound; his sight has been diminishing since 2010 (he is now legally blind), and his hearing has been affected as well. “The summer before...

Wakeful Children | S.P. Oldham | Rougeski Review


W akeful Children by S.P. Oldham is a delightful collection of extremely well-written short stories guaranteed to hearken readers back to a cherished past, when they sat by a fire and listened with rapt attention as granny told scary stories.   For those not lucky enough to possess such memories, Wakeful Children will fill that gap. Oldham’s stories read like fairy tales cross pollinated by the Twilight Zone.   Some are more gruesome than Grimm.  Each tale is told in third person by a gentle, all-knowing voice that lends a haunting, personal quality to each story.  Surprise endings and ambiguous conclusions will echo and linger in readers’ minds, causing them to rethink each story. The chara...
