About R M Garcia

I was born and raised in NJ I am the son of Puerto Rican parents. My parents move to NJ from PR shortly after getting married. I was born shortly after. I have 2 younger siblings, twins, Eric and Erica. Growing up I was a simple child who never asked for much. I didn't ask for anything because my imagination provided me with everything I would ever need. I was considered a dreamer by all of my teachers, but I never thought that was a bad thing. I was initially very shy until I got older and stopped caring what others thought of me. I was who I was, you either liked me or you didn't. I have been called weird, quirky, funny and trustworthy, all titles I hold dear. I wrote the short Story of the Foundlings when I was still in High School and it was not till much later that I fully developed it into a book. Back in the day I used to write poetry and compared my work with my high school friend Travis, who was far better at poetry than I. After High School, I moved to Florida and went to college. I dabbled in varied professions over the next several years. I worked in jobs such as Hotel Manager, Accountant, Insurance Agent, Travel Agent, Customer Service Rep, Draftsman, and even a Fry Cook. When I started on the book, I realized that this was my passion, what am ultimately meant to do. I loved writing the Foundlings and even if it does not become a best seller, I will continue to write. God willing and with help of my fans, The Foundlings will make a mark in the literary world. Thanks you for reading about me.

Review by: JM Luttrull on July 11, 2013 :
The author provided me with a copy of the book for a fair and honest review. Just by the synopsis the author provided I was intrigued and looking forward to reading it. Then, he told me himself in an email, and I quote, “Don't worry though, my book is nothing like twilight, I know there are a lot of vampire lovey dovey stories out there now. Mine should be different enough to stand out in the genre.” I will agree; it does stand out!

After Donnie endured a really rough and trying year; losing both of his parents, and all but giving up on life himself, he meets the beautiful and elusive (when it comes to relationships) Abbie. Although he is smart has a problem with history, and Abbie happens to tutor the subject, so he signs up for sessions. This was the break he needed, and soon they fell in love.

After high school, Abbie went off to college and Donnie became a mechanic. Things were great, until Abbie went to Florida on a vacation trip she won. It was supposed to be a weeklong “girls” trip with her friends. However, someone had different plans for her. She was given the choice to be turned into a vampire, or have all those that she loved be killed. She chose to become a vampire. After doing so she went back home and hung herself to give the impression that she was dead and there was even a funeral.

Donnie, however, did not believe that the events were true and he set out to find the truth. This was when his spirit guide leads him to “the spot” where he crashes his car and falls to his impending death. As he is dying his beloved Abbie appears. She sees that he will not live, and in a state of frenzy, she decided to feed from him.

In the aftermath of the feeding, and to Abbie’s surprise, Donnie soon awakes. Neither of them can believe it, and soon they find out that Donnie is not a typical vampire himself. Donnie vows to protect Abbie once they learn that she is in danger and is being hunted by the “bloodline” that turned her. Little did either one of them know the war that was about to ensue.

I honestly did not know what to expect when I was getting ready to read this novel. I think I was expecting more of a vampire horror type novel, but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t. I truly could not, nor did I want to, put this book down. It had me captivated from the start.

I wanted to give this book a 5 star rating, but the reason why I didn’t is because there were too many errors; additional words in sentences and the in chapter “scene” change breaks was not used until the later chapters in the book, which made some parts of the book a little confusing. Some of it could have been because of formatting issues, but some were probably editing oversights.

Aside from that, like I said before, this book was able to draw me in and get to my emotions in multiple areas of the story. Because of this, this book, and this author, has quickly become one of my favorites. I cannot wait to sink my eyes into the next installment of the series.

In a field saturated with a flood of vampire books in recent years, it's been rather hard to find one that is unique enough to capture my interest. In fact, I was about ready to give the whole genre a nice long vacation before returning to it.

Then I met the author at a Con and decided to take a chance on this book. Granted it took me a while to actually read the book (life, my own writing and a host of other distractions), but when I did, I was hooked.

I don't like spoilers so I will do my best not to give any but, this book (which is one of three) kept me on the edge of my seat while thoroughly engaging me in the main characters' story. There were times I laughed so hard I cried and times when I cried so hard you would think a second deluge was coming.

But through it all the plot, setting and characters kept me riveted. I WILL be getting book #2: The Beasts Within and reading it as well.

The Foundlings by R.M Garcia

Where to start, this book really intrigued me, I was immediately drawn in from the start; the author leaves no room for you to stray from wanting to continue reading. No matter how hard I tried, I found myself wanting to continue on, and each page left me wondering, “What is going to happen next.” I especially really liked how the author portrayed the characters, they were each somewhat relatable and I thought them to have very unique personalities Though I have to admit there were times I felt the urge to hit one of the characters over the head - (Which the reasons for that can only be known if you read the book yourself)

This book did not disappoint and I quite enjoyed how it went from a fast pace start and then lead the reader back to the beginning and portrays the events that lead up to the opening scene, though it did get a little confusing at first. I would recommend this to any vampire lover that does not mind change to the classic vampire folklore; this book not only delivers but also gives a refreshingly new twist into the world of vampires.

I was not sure what to expect within the pages of the Foundlings. It was truly a different take of the vampire genre. If you loves vampires you will totally love this book.

What an incredible read! The book begins normal enough, but then takes off at a fever pitch. The author's take on vampires is completely unique. I was never disappointed from beginning to end, and was frequently up late trying to finish yet another chapter. I can't wait for more, and am currently reading the blog/add-on chapters, that continue the story.
You can not go wrong by picking up a copy of your own, and then getting 6 more chapters for free.
