One night many moons ago a baby named Zeke -Ezekiel Jonathan Carsella- was born. Named by his parents and the subject of many people saying, "Such a cute little baby" "What a beautiful child" he grew to be a scrawny little child playing baseball, basketball, and other normal kid activities. Then he started to read. Initially his mother taught him to read with the Bible. Soon his love for books began to grow into a "passion." He started to write small stories and comic books about various characters with various plots. But his quest for awesomeness was not fulfilled. On a fate filled day during his spring break in 6th grade an idea flew into his head. The book now published Operation Hammer was born. He scribbled draft after draft after draft until he was satisfied with a plot and stuck with it. Soon his family moved to the great state of Landrum, SC where he finished his book on November 29th 2012. This same person is a.k.a the Great Microsoft Missionary to many people across the internet and the state.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Actually I do. It was about a superhero who had an evil twin who wreaked havoc and he was blamed for his crimes. He eventually saved the day, but I wrote it in 4th grade so the story was a bit rough plot wise.
What is your writing process?
Wow, now that is a question I have to think about. For me I go about it hack n slash style. I layout the chapters, characters, the world they live in, and all the details, then I jump into writing the story. After I do a first draft then I'll edit it, then send it to an editor, read over it again, and publish it here on Smashwords!

Smashwords book reviews by Botangle

  • The Search for Mokele-mbembe on Feb. 01, 2013

    I feel swindled a bit. I was looking forward to reading a book not a booklet. Now I see it is only 5,000 words I am regretting my purchase. I think this should be free but I hope my $0.99 goes to the cryptozoology cause. Otherwise it is very informative
  • Shadow of the Golden Blade on Feb. 18, 2014

    Overview Well the book was amazing simply put. A story about Japan, samurai’s, car chases, and high tech programs making your dreams/ whatever he experienced in HQ video was amazing. Even though the book was obviously geared toward geeks (all y’all reading this) it was easy to read through. Obviously the authors did their homework before writing the book. The book features the story of a golden blade hidden by a daimyo of the samurai time who was losing a war with a greedy neighbor. A tie in with the modern world via high tech dream stuffs I can’t even start to explain made the book wildly interesting. Review Hard place to start. Well I think the book was near flawless. The editing was great, the flow was beautiful, the story was highly original. This was the first book in about a year I’ve read on my ancient Skytex Skypad Alpha and the experience was great. Metadata was filled, chapters existed, and cover art worked in the Aldiko app. I hate to make my reviews seem always positive and usually 5/5 but indie authors really are improving in their works. Only qualm was the artwork. I mean the cover and the website design is lacking bu that can be fixed. Still it can detract from the readers if they can’t easily connect with the author. Rating 5/5 Very very good book. Really connects with a lot of people i.e: geeks, Japanese fans, and people loving a good action book. Had a James Bond feel just more sarcastic/satire form. Really enjoyed it hope it happens more.
