****Gripping and totally Enthralling****

⭐
Excerpt:  The bus driver started laughing – a high-pitched cackle that pierced my ears – just as laughter burst through my phone. I looked toward the driver, he was leaning over, twisting back to face me, his mouth stretched open to a wide smile. His laughter grew louder for a second or two and then stopped. “Where are you going Mike?” He said, his voice coming from the phone as well. I dropped it. He stood up, his limbs stretching and growing, popping and cracking. His head crunched against the roof as the tips of his fingers brushed the floor. I slid out of my seat, took a step back. “Tiana, get up!” She looked up at me, blinked, then noticed the driver, a gasp catching in her throat. The ...

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...

Book Review: “The Fourth Monkey” by J.D. Barker

I read for entertainment. My thoughts on style and technique are secondary though often they impact on entertainment value. “The Fourth Monkey” transcends all potential style and technique considerations; for instance, flashbacks…and plots within plots. A little white box tied up with black string found at the scene of a fatal pedestrian accident, and a … Continue reading Book Review: “The Fourth Monkey” by J.D. Barker → Original link

He is the author of the novels, The Sound of Loneliness, and the story collections, Quintessence of Dust, and Gory Hole.     1. How old were you when you first wrote your first story? Too old.

Getting personal with Stanley Wiater


    One of my most interesting interviews to date has to be Stanley Wiater. This man has interviewed everyone I have always wanted to meet and then some. He got to sit in the same room with them and pick their brains. I can’t even imagine. I would faint. I met him on a pod cast where I did book reviews and I can say that he is the most down to earth and kindest person I have had the pleasure to meet. He is smart and funny and gives great advice. I learned a lot by talking to him and how to do better interviews. Normally I send the questions to the author and they fill them out and send them back to me. However I had the honor of a phone call for this one. It was an honor and pleasure to be a...

I never even crossed his. From the moment I met Michael, mysteriously brooding and dressed like a dark angel, there was something electric between us. Or so I thought. What I believed was a seductive and undeniably raw attraction has ended up being something else entirely, something I never foresaw. Because he’s a skilled liar and a master manipulator, and I downright misread his intentions. And now I’m afraid that falling for the man in black might become my biggest ...

Getting personal with Kenneth W. Cain

▪
Kenneth W. Cain first got the itch for storytelling during his formative years in the suburbs of Chicago, where he got to listen to his grandfather spin tales by the glow of a barrel fire. But it was a reading of Baba Yaga that grew his desire for dark fiction. Shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and One Step Beyond furthered that sense of wonder for the unknown, and he’s been writing ever since. Cain is the author of The Saga of I trilogy, United States of the Dead, the short story collections These Old Tales and Fresh Cut Tales, and his latest Embers: A Collection of Dark Fiction. Writing, reading, fine art, graphic design, and Cardinals baseball are ...

How old were you when you first wrote your first story? The first story I wrote was in middle school and it was about a rogue vampire c l an who killed a young girl’s parents, which then caused her to spend the rest of her life tracking them down so she could avenge her family.

Marge Simon Interview


I’m pleased to have Marge Simon on board for an interview. Marge’s story will appear this year in Tales from the Lake, edited by Kenneth W. Cain, Crystal Lake Publishing.   Where did you get your concept for “The Midland Hotel”?   The Midland Hotel began as a poem. The poem was inspired by a trip my husband and I took to meet up with some friends in Tampa, FL. They booked us rooms overnight at a hotel.     Several stories high, It looked okay from th e outside, but once in our room we were less than pleased.  Rather than a pile carpet, it had tile floors. The bedspread was thin , with one flat pillow per bed. The bathroom offered a used bar of soap and half a toil et paper roll. There were n...
