Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started at a young age. No, not 2 or 3, but close. I was about 6 and I wrote and sketched my own comic book, and I have been writing on and off since then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Most of what I have published so far is electronic Chapbooks, or short stories. But I have been working on a Medieval Style Fantasy that will make novel length.

Smashwords book reviews by Mark Richard Masters

  • Spirit Board (A Flash Fiction Story) on Jan. 20, 2013

    A very good short. It paints enough of a picture that you can see the person and the personality of the Character. The only downfall I see in it is that I could predict the end.
  • That Living Feeling on Jan. 24, 2013

    While I am not a fan of "Gay" stories my complaints as it were with this story is not that. There are some things that distract from the story starting at page 1. If it were not for these I would call this an excellent short story. I would even be tempted to recommend it to others.
  • Haiku Moments on Jan. 30, 2013

    I nice collection of non-rhyming micro poems. However that is the problem. All my research says that Haiku are suppose to have a jaxposition between lines 1 and 3. I did not see that in any of these, so I find it hard to view them as Haiku.
  • The Vampire of New Orleans on Feb. 27, 2014

    This is a great novella that the few spelling errors and grammatical issuse barely take away from it. I think that the plot was great and it had a good and bloody ending.
  • At the Edge of Forever on Feb. 27, 2014

    A nice little story about murder, revenge and the Afterlife. I would recommend it.
