Zombie Huntress coverAuthor: G.G. Silverman
Genre: Teen Humor, Fiction, Literature


Clarissa Hargrove thinks prom sucks. She’s been protesting it for weeks, but the conformist sheep that go to Redvale High could care less. Not one single girl has ditched her prom gown in the name of feminism, except for Clarissa’s loyal, underappreciated BFF Cokie. But Clarissa is still on a mission to save more souls–she’ll be at prom, with her bullhorn and picket signs, telling girls they have one last chance to ditch their hooker heels and claim their independence before high school is over. That night, Clarissa drags Cokie to school to protest, but almost everyone at prom has turned into flesh-eating monsters. Trapped in a high-school zombie hellhole, the girls realize they’ve never taken a chance on love, and set out on dangerous quest to save their crushes.

But there’s one teensy little problem.

Clarissa is vegan and hates violence of any kind. Will Cokie and Clarissa survive?

A mashup of pop culture hits like Daria, Mean Girls, and Shaun of the Dead, Vegan Teenage Zombie Huntress will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Continue reading

The X Factor: Confessions of a Naive Fashion Model

Ivan The X factorAuthor of The X Factor Ivan Sivec tells us why reading is the best travel agent you can have.

From an early age books have always been sacred to me. I can go as far as to remember how my father introduced me to the enchanting world of books. Every time he read a book it seemed to me like his passing over letters was unraveling a completely new, unknown and magnificent world. It was a landscape that was lying behind the seven Seas and was oh-so-different from everything I was used to before.
I was very eager to learn how to read. And I knew why. As soon as I could read I felt like this unexplored faraway world was all mine. And guess what? It was! All of a sudden I was able to discover Alaska with Jack London or travel the Moon with Jules Verne. I was fighting South American tribes and discovering how rich my homeland’s history and culture are.

To this day reading to me is the best travel agent I can have. I feel this prickling feeling inside of me whenever I open up a book. It’s wanderlust. A spiritually rich world lays bare in front of me. It is a world I had wanted to get to know for a long time, but, for some reason, had kept myself from going, saying ‘I do not have enough time to go on such a long journey.’ And now I finally set sails!
As soon as I start reading I forget about everything and everyone around me and indulge in a journey through time and space. I cannot put a book down until I have not reached my final destination. And when my journey finally comes to an end the characters and places continue to stay with me for a very long time. They are my friends now. They talk to me and we exchange thoughts for they have now become a part of me.

Reading to me is passion. Each time it enchants me like the first love. A lot of things in life turn perpetual, but a good book will always uncover facets of my soul I had not known before.
That is why I will never fire my travel agent. I will never give up on this passion and cannot wait to start my next journey! Continue reading

Reading Is Magical

Book A holic iconAbout the contributor:  I am very passionate about reading and writing. For me technology and gadgets are simply sexy and irresistible. I like to relax with a cup of hot chocolate reading a great book or watching movies. A certified homebody when the moment calls for it but at the same time I love to get out and explore from time to time. And not to miss it out I’m genuinely fun person and very friendly. I can be contacted via my blog – or on twitter @romspeaks. I would like to have your comments and feedback on this post.

Reading is Magical

I remember very well I was a child of 2 years when my relation with books started and I must say it is still going on strong. My mother introduced me to books. She has been my first teacher, who taught me colours, numbers and names before I started schooling. She still eggs on me to read more. The first book I remember reading on my own was about time telling. To this day I still thank my mother for instilling this practice in me and she also pushed me towards making writing my line of work. I’m more into reading than the TV shows.

I love reading books, for me it magical, pleasurable and soothing. Whenever I

sit with a book to read, I get transported to a new world for hours which evokes different feelings of sadness, joy, anger and thrill. Reading is a little so miraculous on a wealth of experience that can be passed on into my mind, just with the written words and sentences.  The total fascination of a good story is a joy I could never give up, and it’s something that has really defined who I am.

There are 2 sides of me when I read.

  1. The personal experience of reading a book as an introverted attempt.
  2. Images created in my mind

I read. It’s just me and my book.  There is some great reassurance to me that

I can open a book and keep myself unavailable without having to rely on anyone else, or cause inconvenience to anyone.  Maybe that makes me sound very anti-social of but I somehow just like being able to dwell in myself.

The whole new world and the characters of the book(s) I read are sifted by my observation of it, and it’s very own.  Much more than TV because I contribute to the imagination of the book’s setting and characters with what the author has provided in those couple of pages.  And it makes me feel very bright and exceptionally appealing.

During my school times I remember very well, for the duration of lunch hours or free time, I had the very antisocial habit of reading while my others friends were busy gossiping amongst themselves and in my memory, I read a lot of Shakespeare, Milton and Keats.

Books today are becoming extinct. Every piece of content is delivered in sound bites to grab everyone’s eye balls. The world is now fast-paced digital; everyone seems to be in hurry with no time to read a whole book. This is why bookstores are going off business. I feel heartbroken whenever I read about a bookstore’s closure. I totally love all the advances in technology – I have an Ipad with kindle and an android phone with Google Books App installed but I still love real books.

At the end of some busy days, the few minutes I spend reading every night before I sleep, helps me to get a good sleep. It makes me happy and recharges me for an energetic morning the next day.

Books have always been my continuous companions since childhood. I love

their smell, crispy pages, attractive covers, and the pretty bookmarks I use to mark my place and going by my great memory I have never ever folded corners of the pages. I love going through my books collection once a day.

Wherever I go, even if I’m travelling, I make sure that I have a book tucked away; – though as mentioned, I own an Ipad now, the feel of a physical book can never go away from me. I have a habit of noticing people and their behaviour in public, I’m forever trying to locate if I can find someone reading or having a book, but dejectedly, I see lesser people these days with books or interested in reading.

And with the bookstores going off from the business, people just dig their heads deeper and deeper in their mobile phones updating Facebook statuses, playing games, writing ridiculous tweets which longs me to flee to a world where people decide to meet in bookstores and fall in love after striking up a conversation over a book or their favourite author and great cup of coffee.

Do you enjoy reading books? What kind of books do you like to read and who’s your favourite author/authors? I would love to read about your choice.

In Memoriam – Dear Dad

Dear Dad,

One year ago you left this earth without saying goodbye and the pain is still there. I still wonder where’d you go. What is life like for you now? Do you see me? Are you happy? Do you miss us? People say that you are in a better place, is that true or is that something they say to make us feel better? I still can’t believe you are gone. I still have all your texts that I re-read and your voice mail. I don’t want to forget your voice or make it so that you never existed.

I have your steering wheel cover on the Dodge, it is too big but I’ve been able to work with it. It looks strange to the average person but it gives me comfort knowing that your hands held the same steering wheel. We have the same driving style you know. I think I learned that from watching you. I always felt safe when you drove.

So much has happened since you left, I want to write about it to help people who have suddenly lost a loved one. There was so much I didn’t know. It’s hard to get started, the pain is still too strong. The one good out of this is that I am no longer afraid of death because I know you will be waiting for me on the other side.

I want to make you proud Dad, I miss you so much and sometimes I wish you would show yourself. I won’t be afraid, I promise.

I bet you are hanging with some of my favorite people who have passed like Paul Walker, I bet you guys talk about cars all day long.

Say hi to Jackie Collins for me, she was my favorite author and Wayne Dyer, he’s taught me a lot about adversity and helped keep my mind strong and positive.

Dad, I hope you are enjoying your new life and it is better than the one you had here.

I miss you so much and I look forward to seeing you again.

In Love and light,



Meet Bry Foster

Love is an Action Bry FosterHi! So, I’m Bry. I’m 23 and an Army wife. I love to read, write, bake—not well but, good enough…I’m a pretty free spirit. I probably swear too much and I have a pretty big sweet tooth.

When did you first realize that you wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always written. I never imagined that I would actually publish anything though. I started dabbling on a writer’s webpage a couple of years ago and began receiving encouragement to publish from not only fans on the site but also my husband. After that I started seriously pursuing writing.

When did you start writing your first book?

I started LIAA a little over a year ago. It’s changed so much since then that it’s hardly the same book. I wasn’t consistently writing it, I just started it and I would write here and there when the mood struck me. I wasn’t a full-time writer so, my writing was very lax in that way.

How would you describe Khloe, the main character in the book?

I would describe Khloe as head strong, to a fault. She is very set in her ways. Khloe believes that if she walks a certain line, that she will be prosperous in achieving her goals. It’s not until Cash comes along that she realizes she can afford to loosen up more. By the end, I think she understands what she’d been missing out on by keeping herself closed off. She’s book smart but, she doesn’t flaunt it. And when she loves, she loves fiercely.

Where do you get your ideas?

Crazily enough, my ideas usually come to me when characters start talking in my head. The conversations can come from any time frame in the story and they won’t stop having the same conversation until I write it down somewhere. After that, questions about the characters start to form in my mind. How did they get into this situation? What are their backgrounds? My process is kind of fill in the blank. LOL

Love Is An Action started out with Khloe and Cash conversing about his big secret. He was asking her to join his crazy plot. And Khloe spent most of her time in my head, freaking out in her head.

What project are you working on now?

Currently, I’m working on two separate paranormal works that I’m really excited about.

What were the challenges you experienced with getting your first book published?

Where to start? I had so many challenges with getting the manuscript for LIAA written, edited, and on the way to publishing. I think one of the biggest challenges was finding the confidence to just write. I find that when I write for me, my character’s thoughts and actions come naturally. It doesn’t feel forced like when I first started freaking out about the prospect of publishing. Also, finding beta readers that I was compatible with was challenging. Luckily, I happened to meet some great ladies that I am excited to work with again.

What would your protagonist think about you? Would she want to hang out with you, the author, as her creator?

I think Khloe would like me. We have similar senses of humor and I can relate to her issues with her father. On the other hand, the fact that neither of us do well with holding our tongues might lead to a strain in our friendship :) Continue reading
