Clone Zone Cody Toye The Author's Lab/Collaboration series

Cody Toye has a way with fantasy/paranormal/ sci-fi/horror. He has done it with his series “Intangibles” and he brings those skills to bear here in “Clone Zone”. The digital short story is quick, furious, and rampaging. This is the 24th installment in The Author’s Lab/Collaborations series and it is a barnburner. Surprisingly the cast of characters is small yet many, basically because they all look like the same person. This story is under consideration to become its own…

Andrew Smith Guest Post

I grew up among bombed buildings and hearing stories from my parents about the difficultes of air raids, so it was little wonder I’d always wanted to write a novel with World War II as its theme. When I found out about the shameful and extraordinarily cruel internment of Italian men in 1940, I knew I had an amazing event around which to build a story. Internment of Italians happened in Britain, where I set the novel, but it also happened in the United States — California recently apologized…

Layton Green "The Egytian"

I am noticing a trend here, each of Layton Green’s titles have two words in them. First there was “The Summoner” and now “The Egyptian”. Personally I don’t really care; I just enjoy the main character in both, the Dominic Grey, wait that was three words. Okay enough joking around. Layton Green’s novels are infused with common things, science, extremes, and action. A nice formula. There seems to be no middle ground.. What his formula does equate to is a read that flows all downhill and very…

The Revisionists: If You Could Change the Past, Would You?

I’m fascinated by the whole concept of time travel, and the ramifications it could have on history and the future, so when I saw the publisher’s short blurb about The Revisionists, a new thriller by Thomas Mullen, I really wanted to read it. This is a very different way of looking at time travel than I had expected. What if bureaucracy were in charge of time travel? What if their purpose in traveling back through time was to ensure historical events took place so they could protect their…

Kissing and Making It Better

While you are pregnant especially in the third trimester you feel all sorts of aches and pains, especially if you are not used to carrying around so much weight. I on average stand 5 feet tall and weigh a whopping 98 pounds soaking wet. But pregnancy really can be hard on me especially in the third trimester where I really do feel like a beached whale and just maneuvering to get up off the couch sometimes looks like I'm a turtle on my back flailing my legs…

Davis Bunn “Lion of Babylon”

Bethany House is the publisher of this novel and they do an excellent job of producing a rich, multi-layered story. I have not had the pleasure of reading a Davis Bunn novel before, but very quickly I have become a fan of his writing. “Lion of Babylon” is a look at Iraq and Iran through the eyes and hearts of a variety of characters painting a picture that is surreal, consuming and confusing. The viewpoints hop around from character to character and give all sides of the dilemmas that plague…

Slayers: What If Dragons Threatened Washington, DC?

When I read the publisher’s promo for C.J. Hill’s new young adult novel, Slayers, it sounded like a welcome departure from most fantasy novels. Slayers is a novel that’s sure to appeal to people of all ages, and I hope a major film studio jumps on the movie rights because it would make a very cool film! I’d be first in line to see it!

Karen Anna Vogel “Wedding Season-Volume 2 Amish Knitting Circle”

Just because I read plenty of digital short stories , novellas and full length novels that have plenty of horror, thriller , suspense, death and mayhem undertones does not mean that I can’t take a back seat from that and enjoy a nice wholesome read on the Amish folks I so do enjoy. Okay, I like their cooking, but so many other people.

Karen Anna Vogel’s writing for me is unique and has a viewpoint and narrative that I have come to quickly enjoy. Her take on the “Plain” people is…
