Happy New Year!
I hope that the season finds you warm and reading. There’s another blizzard out there this morning. Grrrr. Hoping for a mild winter but Mother Nature has a mind of her own and often carries a big stick.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a good guy)
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. Stir in some red sheriffs. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
Please check out my author page for excerpts:
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers.
from accross the pond in England.
Hope you're well.
Reading is defrinitely essential... but I think i HAVE to have just a little sleep!
I see how much you enjoyed 'Before I go to Sleep' by S.J Watson. It's a great debut novel.
I’m searching for someone like you who appreciates the more original and interesting fiction that might be interested in trying out my novel trilogy "The DEAD LOOP". It is easy to read, emotive and a unique psychological thriller mystery about a man that dies every single day but has no idea why.
My first Shelfari reader wrote on Amazon US: ‘one of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time... There is just something about the idea and the writing combined that from the very first few pages grabs you by the hand and tugs you along to see what comes next and fires your imagination to begin trying to figure out why it is happening.’
Part 1 on Kindle is only $1.25. It should also be on most formats such as Nook, Kobo and Apple too.
If it intrigues you at all and want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback.
I promise you that you won’t regret it!
Complete Trilogy edition (if you’re feeling bold!)
Thank you! I have so many books on my 'to read' list and I don't feel like reading any of them. I needed a good book recommendation. Thanks :) I just listened to Prayers for Sale on tape and when I finished I thought of you. It was a really good story and a great one to listen to.
Oh you'll have to let me know how it is! I'm kind of limited to what my library stocks, which is usually pretty good, but I wish audiobooks were cheaper. I like the idea of that Audible.com but man, it could get expensive.
That is a dumb rule. I hadn't heard of it! I didn't have any incentive to ever get my profile past 50% because I just don't care that much. Sorry :(
Oh that's good to hear. I actually checked it out last fall and then returned it before I read it. I did that with The Help too!!! Sheesh. I think it's because I tend to bring home too many books. If I just go get the one I'm most excited about, I read it right away. I was thinking it might be a good one to listen to on tape, especially since it's in the letter format. I love listening to books on tape on my phone while I'm doing housework... or even driving... is that illegal? Anyways, thanks for the feedback! You're seriously the only person I know who has heard of same books I have.
