About Karen S. Cole

I am a book ghost writer or book ghostwriter with over 30 years of freelance writing and editing experience. It's been off and on, over time, and I began ghost writing in earnest in 2003. I began sending work out to a team of writers and others in 2005, and have been offering our general services as affordable, inexpensive ghost writers, editors, marketers, publishers and other related writing field workers to all kinds of available reasonably paying clients.

I am an Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords NYT bestselling ghostwriter. My books by other people have been listed on the New York Times fiction and nonfiction bestseller lists. I'm responsible for the production of some 300 or more such books. Now I'm trying to take Smashwords by gentle storm. This is my first successfully published humor novel under my own name. I'm offering it for free now, while hoping people will enjoy it and spread the word about a possible ongoing series. It's the world's first truly multicultural American humor novel.

Reviews of The Rainbow Horizon - A Tale of Goofy Chaos by Karen S. Cole

Boyko Ovcharov reviewed on Aug. 11, 2018


I found this book to be highly enlightening! It's a book of extraordinary writing and wildly peculiar ideas - magical realism. An intriguing story of four young friends (featuring a LOT of other people too!) with open minds, great work ethics and itchy feet. Sometimes, it is best to sit back, relax and just weigh up the pros and cons of a certain situation, problem or life in general. Then, a certain amount of ribald humor comes in handy, too. Why worry about everyday life, when it gets messy? In fact, the author makes us see beyond the messes of ordinary existence. While creating brand new hilarious ones! If there's a meaning to Life, then we need to find it out for ourselves and not bother about other trivial things. And in this book, the notion of searching for freedom is also prevalent throughout. Read The Rainbow Horizon: A Tale of Goofy Chaos for some original ethnic and multicultural wisdom!

This was a well written and highly entreating book. It is packed with humor and satire, but the best part is that it deals with the goings on of every day life with regular people. Another important aspect to this book is that Karen S. Cole included people with different backgrounds and different ethnicities. Good book.

"To Jesse Jackson, who's Protestant but who thinks he's President."
It's lines like these that kept me short-yelping with unexpected laughter throughout this quirky, completely fascinating book. With scalpel sharp commentary the author manages to convey the pathos and the poignancy of ordinary life for ordinary people. The best part, however, is the hilarious, witty dialogue and the adroit delivery. This book was a surprise treasure and I recommend it - especially if you don't mind a challenging book that rewards you handsomely for the effort.

Well, where should I start?

First of all I will tell you why I am writing this review.

Once I finished the book I felt that I ought to write a review about it. If the author was able to create a book like this and manage to publish this work of art and imagination than she deserves to be acknowledged for it.

I dare say that this book is not everybody's cup of tea, but if you give it a chance you would be pleasantly surprised. The book is far from easy to read and it's far from being simple, modern or mediocre. The story is deep and complicated and will leave you with a feeling of hope and happiness.
It's about people that are so far from us and at the same time so similar to us. It is about a time that has passed and yet is still with us as it has put its mark on so many of us. It's like reading a play by Woody Allen. It has its own world, own time and own language even. The chaos is everywhere and nowhere at the same time and the characters are amazing. I was trying so hard, while reading "The Goofy Chaos" to think of another book where so many of the characters are so imperfect, so common, and so human. The characters are just people like you and me. I was sick of reading about perfect “Barbie-doll” looking Blondes and sexy Machos that have everything at their disposal. It is great to finally be able to read a book that is telling an interesting story about people that don’t have it all.

This book was like a gasp of fresh air for me.

The characters come to life one by one and surround you. Then you cannot escape them till you've heard their story. Intense, enjoyable, intricate and makes you think as well as feel. A must read for everyone.I just wish there was more to come. A sequel perhaps?
