    Interesting end. I see your implied suggestion at how fickle humans are and that in 5,000 years people will be making movies and predictions of the next great disaster. Since I can remember the end has been nigh!
  • Song For A Friend on March 11, 2011

    Excellent. Says everything in such a few words.

    Ahhh, that was so sweet. It kept me wondering all the time. Very nicely done.
  • Her on March 11, 2011
    star star star star
    I love your cover. Your story was poignant and full of emotion and feeling, although I do not know why it must always be a happy ending. I felt it would have done the story more justice if she did not come back. I enjoyed it though.
  • Voiceless on June 10, 2011
    star star star star star
    This story needed to be told, and aptly named Voiceless. I like the fact that the author is donating portions of the sales to the Children Without A Voice Foundation. Once I started reading, I could not stop.
  • The Man Who Murdered Himself: A Short Story on June 11, 2011

    Excellent!! I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and although I should have known the scanning process would create another, it still surprised me.

    I enjoyed all three 'stories'. You have a way with words that is not complicated and makes it easy to read.

    I downloaded the preview ages ago, but then this story got lost on my Kindle. Last night I 'found' it and when I started reading I could not stop, so I had to buy the full copy. The story is well written and had me intrigued from the beginning. Although I am glad it all turned out well in the end, I would have liked to see a conclusion to the suicide letter.
  • Unforgiven Pleasure on June 14, 2011

    Sorting through my Kindle, I came upon this story again. Reading it a second time, I enjoyed it more. It is perfect, and once again the end was sweet. There is no doubt that I would have continued reading if it was longer. I loved the chemistry between them.

    A young woman and boy meet. He falls in love and she leaves. Years later they meet again - both old. Was an interesting read and well described.

  • Made For You on Feb. 27, 2012

    I enjoyed reading your story. Maybe because I am also from Africa I did not get confused and I understood your symbolism. In particular I loved the following line: 'The kind of pain that makes the heart writhe, the soul hopeless and devours beauty'

    I loved this short story. It was beautifully written and the symbolism of the circle of live in human relationships was clearly described. It was a great read ♥

    I could so easily relate to everything he said and felt. Often I also have so many things to say and do when I see other people go against the grain of society, but sadly fear also holds me back.
  • Another Bookstore on Sep. 30, 2012
    star star star star
    I liked it! I enjoyed reading this well written short story and found it to be an interesting concept - to be truthful, the idea of a book with his life story already printed and published gave me goose bumps. Sadly though when the person in the book realized that each person is doing the same thing, he did not try to better himself, but remained resigned to his fate. The end left me feeling a little bit sad.
  • Dark Places on Jan. 04, 2013
    star star star star star
    I enjoyed this collection of well written short stories and poems thoroughly (and I am the first to admit I do not read poetry often). Although all the stories were gripping, dark and held me immersed within each of them, I would like to list the ones I found especially wonderful: The Coming of the Storm, I am Death, The Last Dance, Candle, You, The House on the Moor, The Glass and lastly, but not least, Joy. Each of the stories and poems in this book is positively dark, scary and eerie, yet there is something about each one of them that stirred something deep down inside of me, as if it touched something within me. I would recommend this book to anyone.
  • UnEnchanted on March 08, 2013
    star star star star star
    I loved this story with its original take of fairy tales. I read this book in a day and once I started, there was no stopping me. For me, the characters were believable and I was pulled into an enchanted world, where I actually believed there was a real curse and she really had to complete the story she was chosen for.
  • The Book of Beings: Beginnings (Episode One) on April 27, 2013
    star star star star star
    I loved everything about it. I loved the mystery of not knowing where the story is going to go, especially with her calling herself Mary at Planned Parenthood and maybe it is a modern twist on the biblical story of Mary and Joseph. I loved the way the story was told with authentic emotion. I loved the length of the e-book. It was amazing and I am definitely hooked to The Book of Beings.
  • If I Die Young on May 05, 2013
    star star star star
    I really liked this story. Cailyn gets sick with a serious illness and you would expect it to become monotonous and long winded, but it doesn't. This well written story made me experience her desperation, fear and anxiety, and then later her joy at finding love. When I read the last words, I felt a warm, fuzzy feeling of happiness.
  • The Grandmother's Message on June 29, 2013
    star star star star star
    This short story was very descriptive and I found myself totally immersed. It was as if I was being led down the slightly lighted path toward a white door myself. At the end of the story I felt a sense of melancholy, because most times when a loved one dies, we tend to put so much focus on what should or could have been instead of looking after those who are still with us and living each and every day. A very, very nice story.
