I enjoy reading various genres of books. I read from the classic novels like Sherlock Holmes to horror stories and history books.

Please join us at a new Shelfari.com group: Good Reads Café
This is a Readers’ and Writers’ group. Open discussions, debates, critiques and self-promotions…
The group is for all readers with some understanding of literature and for all good authors. All book genres are welcome, thriller genre books are preferred. All good writers, writers with books rated three stars and better by a qualified reviewer, are welcome to promote and approach readers with their creations.
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. 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 out there. Must be a factory out there producing them like peanut butter cookies.
Thanks for joining the Mystery & Suspense group! Tell us something about you in the Introduce Yourself discussion topic and who are some of your favorite authors in this genre.
Our current book for group discussion is Kill and Tell by Linda Howard. Our next books for discussion in November are The Black Echo by Michael Connelly and Shadow Man by Cody MacFayden and we hope you will participate.
