    Very sad to read but I guess we've all been there at one time or another. Very well written and I enjoyed the experience.
  • The Torans of Andor 'Out of Time' on July 01, 2013

    I must be a slow reader as it took me 3, 4 hour sessions. I must admit that I thought it was a great read. I like this writers style of writing and I enjoyed how Peter basically stumbled through each part of his life. He finds it difficult to do the 'right' thing because he's so scared and I can see how he would feel this way. Very enjoyable read for me.

    Funny but it did give me horrific visions.....Punctuation and layout could have been a lot better but apart from that..FUNNY.
  • A Week And A Day In The Lives Of Two Angry Young Men on Sep. 27, 2013

    I suppose writing a book is an interpretation of our personality and imagination. Self publication lets everyone get in print. BUT, I wouldn't classify this as a 'good read' by any means. I struggled with it and unfortunately, no matter how I tried, could not get to the end of the story. I wasted half an hour of my time with what I did read.

    What a wonderful, touching story. I felt so much emotion while reading this I don't dare tell my wife. I wonder how many kids this happened too especially during the depression years so long ago. Very well written Robert. This is the first Robert Ray Moon story I've read but I will make a point of reading them all.
  • A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword' on Nov. 01, 2013

    Like Bronwyn I grabbed this book as soon as it appeared too. It seems like I'd been waiting for ever to read the rest of the story but it's only been a few weeks. Where do I start? Yes, it starts slow but I'm happy with that. Getting to know the characters and crimes that the Inspector has no clues to guide him. Then the piece of parchment appears. This is the key to everything but you don't know this. The author makes you believe it only assisted to solve the first group of murders. There is a great 'twist' at the end of the first part. Very clever. But then we move on, different murders that young Father Graeco helps with. He is really likeable as is the coroner. I love the bit about the 'lemons', very funny. Then it gets down to serious business, the Inspector is really screwed over and blames himself for what happens. This is the sad part (I'm not giving it away). His attitude changes from this point, he starts to smoke again (gave it up 5 years ago). Then he meets a 'Knight of Christ' (probably shouldn't have mentioned that). This is when things start moving fast and you see the pieces fitting in to place as does the Inspector. I like him very much, and yes, like Bronwyn I believe it could be in all of us to do this but the Inspector is very intelligent and has a good memory, probably why he made Inspector in the first place. It keeps you going to very last page. I'd love to see it in movie form and I didn't feel that it offended the Catholic Church at all. Very believable story. Easy to read which is what I like after a hard day at work. Worth every cent of the price.

    I was surprised to see my favorite author had written something for children. I have a 10 year old daughter so I had an excuse to download this story. Written beautifully, once again this author has amazed me with their versatility. I almost missed the last page, but once again this author has put in the 'twist' at the end.

    There are so many books on Smashwords I seek out what others read, that like what I like and came across this by chance. What a wonderfully written story. I thoroughly enjoyed it even with the minor errors. I've read a few books here and found people who's first language is english make bigger mistakes. Keep up the good work. :)

    I only found one spelling error. Apart from that it was an interesting story and I'm sure my daughter will like it when I read it to her.

    You have to change the text to black. This is a nightmare to read on my ereader. Apart from that, very well written.

    What a wonderful piece of writing. I was going to read it over the course of a few days but finished up reading it in one sitting. This was a recommended read and I am glad I took their advice. I hope there will be more coming soon from this author. If I was still single I'd marry this lady :)
  • The Torans of Andor 'Out of Time' GRAPHIC NOVEL on Jan. 07, 2014

    Another wonderful story from this author that I found easy to read. I love fantasy stories and this shows me the author is a great storyteller. I've probably read it six times now as I started with the text version. This I would definitely like to see in print.

    Glad to see the author published book one complete. Easier to read, or are we just getting lazy? Love the cover too.
