    Author Interview and Giveaway – Jason Parent!

     Ravenous Reads welcomes Jason Parent! Author of “What Hides Within” Be sure to enter the giveaway for a copy of What Hides Within! Jason’s bio: Jason spends his days writing, but it’s mostly drafting legal memoranda as a civil litigator in New Bedford, MA–not exactly a venue conducive to creativity. But during his lunch breaks and after hours, you can often find him at one of the area’s charming coffee shops, huddled over an unadulterated iced coffee with a pen and paper in hand (somewhat old-school in his methods). Hopefully, when you see him, the pen’s moving, and he hasn’t dozed off.    What’s it like being a civil litigator?…

    Guest Review of The Devil of Echo Lake by Douglas Wynne

    The Devil of Echo Lake by Douglas Wynne My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book has a lot going for it. Ancient evil, witches, Pan, and good old Rock N Roll. How could you go wrong? As a huge fan of rock music and the blues, I’m on board with the whole Robert Johnson “sold his soul” train. This book was an original twist on that story, with the modern day accoutrements of an evil record producer and an ogre of a music label. For a while in the middle portion, the pacing slowed down a lot, (technical stuff in the recording studio), but then the story began to…

    Guest Review of Ugly Beautiful by Sean-Paul Thomas

    Ugly Beautiful by Sean-Paul Thomas My rating: 3 of 5 stars This book had potential. The premise was good. A douchebag named Jason stole a boatload of money and screwed over his only friend Gary in the process. He took off and ran into a beautiful young woman….and then the real story began. At that point I was already getting aggravated with the misspelled and misused words. I found it to be distracting and that’s a shame, because the seeds of a cracking tale were there. Towards the end Jason’s world was crumbling and by that time the character had grown just enough that I cared what happened to him.…

    Book Review- All Art is Junk by R. A. Harris

    All Art is Junk by R.A. Harris My rating: 3 of 5 stars I was asked by my good friend Nikki, here Ravenous Reads, if I could help her out with a short bizarro read. I said sure, so here I am! Now, let me just say that bizarro really isn’t my thing. To be honest, I’ve not read any bizarro of substance-this is my first one. It really wasn’t bad. 🙂 From what I gathered, our protagonist is some type of cyborg/ machine (Lancelot or Junk, depending on who is addressing him), who’s trying to save Lana, a girl with paintbrushes for hair. I very much enjoyed the concept…

    Author Interview – James Everington

    I found James Everington soon after I got my first Kindle. I found his collection of stories The Other Room and I became an instant fan. My favorite story in that collection is “A Writer’s Words”, which I mention in one of the questions below. Then I discovered the works of The Abominable Gentlemen and I thought I was back in the heyday of mags like Fangoria and Weird Tales. I was as happy as a pig in…..well, anyway these magazines have some awesome short stories and they cemented me in as a fan.  (They are all now available in this pretty cool looking omnibus edition.)    In July of 2012,…
