Hi nickaholic23 - Thanks for giving me and The Diaries of Pontius Pilate a shot. If you find it worthy, I ask you to recommend it to friends and family - being discovered and recommended by readers like you is the only way an emerging author like me has a chance.

Hello nickaholic23, I read Amazon has you as a member “with” Ted Dekker’s “Infidel” on their shelf, so I’d like to recommend another Christian Thriller, "The Diaries of Pontius Pilate.” It draws upon the author’s military background and has great reviews. “Diaries” is not a vanity or self-pub book, but is published by Trestle Press, a small independent press outside of Philadelphia under its imprint, Helping Hands Press, that gave a Christian novel a chance. Full disclosure - I wrote it and hope you’ll give it a chance.
Best wishes, Joe Lewis www.josephmaxlewis.com
Finished "Edge of Dark Water," and just reviewed it. Joe R. Lansdale is one of my favorite authors.
My next book "The Hot Country" is about a newspaper reporter who goes to Mexico to report on the Mexican Revolution. San Antonio even has a little part in it.
I liked your review of "Edge of Dark Water." I'm about half way through and enjoying it very much.
I also like your shelf and see we have ten books in common. We must have similar taste.
As a librarian, maybe you could check out my thriller, "Splattered Blood" for yourself or your library. It's gotten excellent reviews and is on the Suspense and Thriller reading shelf at Shelfari.
Also wanted to tell you of a fun book, "A Fistful Of Collars." It's about a canine and his human companion who are PIs.
I'm having a giveaway of that book on my blog, please check it out.
Summer is going soooooooooo fast.

Dracula: Hearts of Stone
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 novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
“I found myself "hearing" the characters in this story. They are well written and I found myself able to leave the normal world behind. I deeply enjoyed the humor and the addition of P. Anthony, that was a touch I did not expect at all. Dracula in this book is seen in a different light, not a true creature of evil at all. I do suggest that you read this book as it is very good and enjoyable.”

Just dropped by after seeing your picture. Your avatar is priceless. I am a horse lover.
Ohhhh boy...I'm with ya. I'd love to own a bookstore too. I always invision myself owning a bookstore/coffee shop/candles/homemade soaps.... and making enough money to actually live on doing this. My little shop will naturally have a little bell in the doorway!
Eclectic Book Club Peeps:
All righty, let's have those nominations for our next big read. What's everyone in the mood for?
Post your selections in the "Genres" thread and we'll hash it out. If that takes too much energy, I will put all genres nominated in a hat and pick one at random!
I loved the picture you posted of the two horses! I'm crazy about horses...I teach English at a community college, but that's just to fill in the time between my riding lessons. If your dream is to someday own a bookstore, you might be interested in reading the Cliff Janeway series by John Dunning, whose protagonist is a retired cop who owns a bookstore and scouts rare books. Oh, and solves murders along the way.
