DRACULA: Hearts of Stone.
Enter this world of magical vampires. It’s a place where enchantment and biters interweave for an exciting adventure.
It’s a tale of magic, romance and fangs; a tale of valor.
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a new novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
"Madman in the Mirror" is a story about a man - Henry Johnson - who is raised by a psychopath and forced to watch - even as a baby - his father murder people on a regular basis. He is also abused and brainwashed, turning him into a sociopath. Henry stalks and murders people efficiently - he tells himself that he may be a killer, but he doesn't want people to suffer. He is haunted by hallucinations, including a specter in his mirror that talks to him.
“A.J. is a master at creating word images that remain with the reader long after the book is finished.” Richard S. Friedman

I can totally relate to that - work impinges significantly on my shelfari (and reading) time also! LOL! Somehow I got really addicted when I first joined shelfari. However, so I've actually been doing a lot of editing, as well as setting myself up. Reading time is now suffering a lot, what with all the one-clicking on amazon as well!
Thank you for purchasing my book, "An American Holocaust: The Story of Lataine's Ring". I am always amazed at how few people have even heard of the 1937 London School explosion... even in my home state in Texas. Unfortunately, more than one reviewer has expressed harsh criticisms regarding the use of the word 'holocaust' in this book's title, calling it "obscene", "misleading", and "nothing more than a cheap marketing ploy". I assure you that was not my intention when I decided on the title for this book. Please let me know if the title is also offensive to you. If so, I want to offer my sincerest apology and will consider changing it. If you would like to offer a title suggestion that you feel would be better or more appropriate, I welcome your ideas.
My goal is simple... to make as many as possible aware of this tragedy and its significance by reaching them through this book. Your feedback is important in that process. I truly feel that more attention should be given to this historical event, so it will never be forgotten. If you agree, please let other readers know by rating "An American Holocaust" at this site and where it was obtained. Please consider posting a brief comment with your rating. With sincere appreciation... Kerry L. Barger.
We vote on a book to read for group discussion every month. Everyone gets a chance to make a recommendation and then we close it off and vote on the slate. I post discussion topics for the selected book near the end of the month. It's my most favorite aspect of groups....to talk about books and get others perspective.
Hi, AtoK! I saw your intro and some of your comments on the Mystery and Suspense group and wanted to invite you to my group, Armchair Squints. It's a very, very laid back group and it's quite small, but we really enjoy it. It's actually small enough that we've become friends (we only have 5 or 6 active members!). Oh, and I'm a huge Kindle fan myself! Come check us out, we'd love to have you!
Welcome to the Mystery & Suspense group! My apologies for posting this so late but I'm traveling this week with limited access to Shelfari.
Our next book for group discussion is Killing Field by Lee Child. Discussion topics will be posted at the end of the month.
I'm a recent convert to Kindle and don't know how I ever managed without it! I've read more books since I got my Kindle in June than in the first half of the year put together.
I've recently uploaded my first novel onto Kindle. If you have time, I'd love to know what you think of it. Cheers! -Liz
