Book Review: The Husband by Dean Koontz

As always, Dean Koontz delivers an intense reading experience and a novel you don't want to put down. His characters are alive, they have depth. There are plenty of odd turns and surprising twists. I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through. The main character is an ordinary guy forced into extraordinary circumstances. A guy who has to find things within himself that he didn't even know were there in order to save someone he loves.

Time of Shadows

My five part series, "Time of Shadows" has been accepted for publication. The first book is "Shadow Born." I think I'm in a bit of shock. This series has been my pet project for about ten years. I can hardly believe this is happening. If I'm asleep, don't anybody wake me up.

Book Review: Ghost Story by Peter Straub

This book is strange right from the start. It bounces back and forth between different time periods in order to tell the story which, while not confusing in the least, was a bit tiring. I wasn't sure I was going to like this book even as I was reading it, but the further I went the better it was. By the ending, I was on the edge of my seat wondering who was going to come out the winner. It's a bizarre book, but also kind of creepy. I wouldn't advise reading this one late at night. If you're a fan Stephen King, I would say this is a book for you.

Party Time!

My second novel, Shadow of the Dragon, was just accepted for publication by Wild Child Publishing.  I'm super excited and of course busy doing all the work that comes along with it. Shortly, I'll have two more novels ready to submit. Hopefully they'll get picked up as well. It's so cool to be able to do something you really love and get paid for it.

Book Review: Running With The Demon by Terry Brooks.

I loved this book. The characters were complex and fleshed out, the storyline was well paced, and the ending flowed naturally. This book is about a young girl with magical powers inherited from her mother and a mysterious father that no one is willing to talk about. It's also about the battle of good vs evil and a man named John Ross, a Knight of the Word. An excellent book. I would recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy novels set in the real world.
