I love books. Until recently, I kept to just reading them, but ideas for characters and scenes took control of my mind and made me have to get those ideas down. I have been writing for about a year and have really enjoyed working out the process of taking my ideas and forming new worlds for others to enjoy.
This whole writing thing is still a hobby for me. I sit down on weeknights and weekends and just float over to my other worlds for a while. Other hobbies of mine include: drawing, baking, arts and crafts, motorcycles, hockey, and archery. I like to think I have eclectic tastes where my hobbies are concerned. I love to laugh and try to at least make myself smile once a day. With the crazy thoughts going on in my head that usually isn't hard.

First of all I must say that I haven't read anything else in this series. I tried this book because it was free to see if I liked the writing enough to give it a go and the answer was yes. I have since bought book 1 in the series which is Night Calls.
Clyde is a Hellhound who can talk to his mistress, Nyx, who lives in a house with an assortment of werewolves and humans. He spends his spare time writing an internet advice column and having sexual relations with stuffed animal toys.
"I hope they didn't find out about me humping a fluffy stuffed duck I found lying around the other day. It was just the right firmness to...well you get the idea."
Clyde is not your patient, kindly, compassionate agony aunt and his advice to his followers is to the point and illegal in most cases-and pretty funny. Now he may be about to lose his internet access, and his mistress seems pretty mad at him all the time.
"She must've found out about the duck. I tried to hide the dang thing."
It's a hard life for Clyde, living with someone who hates him, unable to communicate with those around him and getting bored. Only the internet gives him a sense of purpose.
"I have to say the Internet is one of the best things ever created besides maybe the cow."
This book is pretty funny and it is impossible not to love this intelligent hellhound as he talks to us about his typical day. I think he appears in the later books in the series and seems popular among those who follow the series. Based on this I certainly want to give the series a try.
