Getting Personal with Patrick James Ryan


 My next victim is Patrick James Ryan. He is a super nice man and a really great author. He is very skilled in martial-arts and loves Bruce Lee! He has a great sense of humor and always makes me laugh. His books are amazing and if you have not picked one up you must!! Recently I read Blood Verse and totally loved it. Until I read that I didn’t realize that he is also a talented dark poet. There is a story then a poem then story in this book. I really enjoyed that about it and in fact I begged him to send in several submissions for Hellbound’s Poetry anthology. I’m proud to say that he did!First, let me offer some thanks to you, Becky for this great opportunity to be interviewed by you for yo...

Book Review: “Death of a Movie Star” by Timothy Patrick

This novel has more plot twists than Carter’s got little liver pills (do we still say that in Appalachia?)…but in a good way. StarBash is the highest rated reality show. The celebrity who lasts longest wins a $10 million movie deal. Lasting the longest is also sort of humiliating; they descend from an initial luxurious … Continue reading Book Review: “Death of a Movie Star” by Timothy Patrick →Original link

A Better Life by Kyle M. Scott. Review by:Mandy Tyra

😉
The Savvy Scotsman scribes again!!FINALLY, it has been too damn long since I have had the pleasure of Mr. Scott’s company to keep me warm at night.Not my choice, it’s been over a year since his last release, The Club; an unhinged and animalistic ~ goretastic and orgylicious ~ story about innocence lost, inhibitions shed, and overindulgence embraced to the extents of which would make the tour guides at Sodom and Gomorrah blush.It was crude and lewd and one hell of a delightfully down and dirty read!This book, A Better Life, is much more reserved, subtle in it’s horrificness yet still horrific indeed.It’s more of an atmospheric slow-burn, a character driven tale with an age-old ethical dilemma...

Book Review: “West of the Dead Line” by Phil Truman


  Talent can’t be hidden, and certainly Phil Truman is a talented writer in the very special and specialized Western genre. “West of the Dead Line” can compare favorably with the best of Louis L’amour. Bass Reeves is a daring but unassuming US Marshall. He’s also a former slave whose exploits are the subject of … Continue reading Book Review: “West of the Dead Line” by Phil Truman →Original link

Getting personal with S.C. Burke


“  I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, but was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I had a youth shrouded in perpetual 80s themes, cartoons, toys, comic books, and most importantly- film. I studied film well into my 20’s, hoping to have a career writing or directing. However, my attention kept fall to writing, mainly experimental prose, something that slowly seeped into everything I did. So, it was then that I decided to devote myself entirely to the art of words.  This was the birth of NihilismRevised – an independent literary collective of underground writers, all coming together to create books in basements, then distributing our labors at live readings and street corners. After several years, t...

Book Review: “Fracture After Dark” by Shawn Jolley.

At first, I thought Shawn Jolley had accepted the challenge of writing a gender neutral, coming-of-age mystery. Frankly, I was excited since I was curious on the technical aspects of writing a gender neutral novel. But if writers are supposed to paint pictures with words, the gender neutral novel may not be for everyone. A … Continue reading Book Review: “Fracture After Dark” by Shawn Jolley. →Original link

Getting even more personal with Jason Parent


One thing I love to do is to go back and talk to the amazing authors I have interviewed in the past. I get to see what they have been doing and what new books they have out now. I am honored to get to read for so many incredibly talented people. Jason Parent is one of these writers that I love to read. His books are superb and his plot and characters are always on point. To say he it talented is putting it mildly. His winning combination of smart, funny and charming makes him one of the best in my world. His latest release of They Feed is just another notch in his belt of proving me right. He is one to watch. He is going places. He is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. With a...

Book Review: “Pavarotti and Pancakes” by Francesco Granieri

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. “Pavarotti and Pancakes” is easily the best memoir I have read in the past ten years, Colin Powell’s and Tiger Woods’ included. It has the authenticity that makes a memoir respectable; a deep from the heart cry in the dark, if you will. Francesco’s … Continue reading Book Review: “Pavarotti and Pancakes” by Francesco Granieri →Original link

First of all, this is the … Continue reading Book Review: “Pivot Point” by Tess Manchester →Original link

#BookReview His By K.M Keeton

His
His by K.M. KeetonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars His was the first book I've read from author K.M Keeton ,and it will not be my last. The storyline was fantastic! It held my attention from the first page to the last. I fell in love with Donaven , a Dom who took care of Lana's needs emotional, and physical, while Allen was getting his own dose so to speak. There was a huge wow factor, I hadn't seen coming, and it spoke volumes, making so much sense tying into the entire story.Overall a well written steamy emotional bdsm story that I would recommend to anyone looking for a great dominant, and submissive style read with a twist. This book was given to me by the author to read. My review is based on my...

Book Review: “Pivot Point” by Kasie West

Thrillers thrill me. Historical novels give me insight into the dreary chapters of past events. Whodunits captivate me. Science fiction with a believable base hold my attention and ability to conjecture. “Pivot Point” is not in any of these categories and I don’t know why I agreed to review it except I got caught in … Continue reading Book Review: “Pivot Point” by Kasie West →Original link

Isobel Blackthorn takes over Roadie Notes


One of the things I love is finding out where the ideas for the stories we read come from. Some are real places, some dark dreams but most are from the incredible creative minds of my writer friends! What follows is Isobel Blackthorn telling us all about her newest book, it is one you want to read! The link to purchase this awesome book is following her telling of how it all started…… The Making of The Legacy of Old Gran ParksStories come from mysterious places, and are often a combination of a number of factors and ideas that come together and form a synergy. Sometimes the story behind the story is special and worth telling in its own right. I think the story behind The Legacy of Old Gran P...

Getting personal with Xtina Marie


Xtina Marie is an avid horror and fiction genre reader, who became a blogger; who became a published poet; who became an editor; who now is a podcaster and an aspiring novelist—and why not? People love her words. Her first book of poetry: Dark Musings has received outstanding reviews. It is likely she was born to this calling. Writing elaborate twisted tales, to entertain her classmates in middle school, would later lead Xtina to use her poetry writing as a private emotional outlet in adult life—words she was hesitant to share publicly—but the more she shared; the more accolades her writing received. She is also someone you will absolutely adore. Someone near and dear to my heart! Please hel...

Book Review: “Ricochet Joe” by Dean Koontz

I read eBooks, mainly in the Kindle app. That’s the only way I can read two to three books a week without going broke or be sent to a mental hospital for hoarding. In the case of Dean Koontz’ “Ricochet Joe” it is fortuitous for the author. My reading habits give me something I can … Continue reading Book Review: “Ricochet Joe” by Dean Koontz →Original link
