I only have a photo for the cover, I’m not a writer: This is my review:

Imagine a book when you look at a picture and your imagination runs wild with stories about what you see. That’s this series! Awesome photography, poems and stories written by several superior authors! I’ve read every book in this series, each one had new authors to get to know. There’s weird stories that make your mind think. Sci-fi that’ll show a glimpse into the authors mind, down right chilling stories, don’t forget the amazing poetry by two amazing poets, the photography that inspired these stories. You really should try one of these books, their worth the money and totally worth your time. This is one of my favorite books in this series. I think it makes a good Halloween read.

Enemy, Friend, Lover? Wild Goose Chase by Jan Romes

Another hit by this fantastic author! Olivia Pence and Dezz Casey both grew up in a small town in Iowa. Olivia is a word nerd with not many friends. Dezz Casey was also a nerd, you’d think they’d become friends, but all through school Dezz made fun of Olivia, always in competition with her. Olivia left for New York City to work for a magazine called Brillance, Dezz followed her. She didn’t know what to make of that. Dezz is looking a lot different from their school days when he was a skinny geek, he now was six foot of man candy. He’s such a pain in her butt, they’re always trying to up one another at work. The constant rivalry between them was getting to the boss and killing the atmosphere around the office. Their boss was sick of it and sent them on a two week journey to write about serendipitous things. Will their time away from each other ease their rivalry or flare up something else? The humor is off the wall in this book. Will the romance this author is known for creep into the story? These two characters are so much alike, they throw stones at each other constantly! Great read!

Believe: “Solem” by Clive Johnson

I’m glad Clive didn’t change his way of writing with this new book, still using old tongue language. Clive’s style of writing draws me in, I haven’t read another author like him. I’m glad I got the paperback to read poolside as it added to the spookiness of the book, I’m surrounded by woods. Janeen had to leave her village because she had a demon in her, she stayed longer than most children with a demon in them by bewitching the villagers. She didn’t know this, but her father and a friend did. There came a day when her dad knew it was time for her to leave, she was seventeen then. I wonder if the parents know what happens to the children they send away? Luckily she has Sharman, Craith and Dwelgefa. They realize this isn’t a normal case, so the journey begins through the countryside, up rivers and through dense forest. I can visualize the countryside because the description the author writes is so clear I got the goose bumps running up my arms and legs at times. This book is full of mystery, adventure, demons and a little romance. The characters I came to look forward to being with each time I opened the book will be missed. I took the journey, felt the fear, adrenaline and faith with the characters and their creator. You should to! Clive never disappoints, I’ve read his Dica series which blew me away also. This author is one of the best story tellers of the written word. He makes maps to help you visualize the countryside he’s writing about and his drawing blow my mind. Don’t miss out, take the journey!

The Things I can see and hear: ” Wake Me Up” by Justin Bog #review

Wake Me Up by Justin Bog

A tiny town, a gross injustice! Teenager Chris Bullet is beaten with a bat by four bullies because they thought he was gay. In this awesome novel you’ll read about his coma state of mind, where he can see or read what’s going on in his loved ones and friends lives. I can’t imagine being able to do that, don’t know if I’d want to. Right from the start the author gets intense, page after page of raw emotion. I was thrown into the lives of these characters, some I didn’t like, some I felt sorry for, all being told by Chris in his coma. The author does a outstanding job with this story! I’ve read his books, all of them well written thought out stories. This one was his first full novel!! I recommend this book to anyone who likes intense stories with strong characters.

Military Boots by Dawn Torrens

A powerful poetry book! War is inevitable because we have to stick up for ourselves and help those that can’t against those wanting to hurt us. Unfortunately we all know of someone whom wars have hurt, family, friends etc… This poetry book gives tribute to our our siblings past and present who have died so we can live. Those who are still here, mothers, sisters, brothers.. The author has done phenomenal job writing her feelings for all these soldiers and thier loved ones. Worth the read!!!
