What He Writes: Stories without borders. John Paul Allen is known for crossing lines and warns readers, "Nothing is off limits, if it edifies a story. If you want safe, there's a lot of that being offered. I expect my readers to go beyond the content, in order to enjoy the story."

Smashwords book reviews by John Paul Allen

  • The Contract on March 14, 2011

    It was a little long for me, but I understand the intent - unlike a lot of erotic fiction, there is a purpose here. Sort of an S&M for Dummies. I think the curious can learn something here. Also I liked the way you fit the story into it. Not sure if you do other types of writing, but you could. Well written.
  • Evil Takes Flight on March 15, 2011

    Good story for a younger audiance. You might think about tightening it up a little, but I read from start to finish - a good sign. Almost a 4 star.
  • Another Evening in Stacy's Dorm Room on March 15, 2011

    I see there's other Stacy and Harold stories - probably not completely fair reviewing just this one without reading the others ... interesting.
  • Into the Spell, A Paranormal Thriller on April 05, 2011

    Good characters great story - my first Norm Applegate novel and it won't be my last.
  • It's the Eyes on April 05, 2011

    A great piece of flash fiction.
  • A Pair of Creepy Shorts on April 23, 2011

    Nicely done. Hope to read more of his work.
