Being an avid reader, I try to make full use of what I read(reading is a better teacher, you learn without you having to experience or anything) so I write for fun and creativity.
What motivated you to start writing?
I started writing because I can and not because of talent or whatsoever. And because I've always wanted to be a part of something.
How do you plan your stories?
The truth is, it all happens differently. Sometimes I'll get bored, get my laptop, and tell myself that I'm going to write a story. Then I pick up a genre and Title, then start typing anything that pops into my mind. Or sometimes I'll be in the bathroom when an idea pops up, and I can only curse finding myself with no note book. Sometimes I'll be at work when an idea pops up. I usually call on any of my co-workers, tell them the idea and then tell them to hold it for me till knock off time.
Daniel is found dead hanging from a tree in the woods, Catherine is found dead lying on the railway tracks. Gladys tries to unravel the mystery but ends up missing. Franklin is found dead in his house with a knife protruding from his...well, you know, ...ass.
Who's behind the killing?

Amazing. You just can't get enough of this guy. Ed rifled through some papers. "Here's a complaint from the university athletic department. It says someone drilled a hole in the wall to the girl's showers!" "Really?" Detective Bureau rose from his chair and headed for the door. "I guess I better look into it". Really loved the book, very funny. WOWZA!
I totally agree with diego, nice story, nice ending. I have been looking for your book (incident set in stone) to review it, only that I can't find it but I have to say it's amazing, magnificent, striking, awesome and indescribable. Really great work.
WOW , this book is amazing. It's really a teach. Really loved it, to me I learned about being nice, loving, and how us as humans is very important to take care of the things we have been given by God.(So off I go to be a vegetarian and say hello to PIGS)
First time as well reading an Egypt writer and I really enjoyed this book. Even learnt a few things about life, especially in the first few chapters...things like how frigile is and how we find ourselves in circumstances we didn't even plan for or anticipated. It a good read, well done! although they happened to appear to many flash backs..but I guess that's just a matter of the reader to understand....
I really enjoyed this book. I didn't know this series will lead me to something so awesome. I also noticed that the author added some interesting humor in this chapter. Looking forward to the next Chapter......
liked this funny line: " given the way he hazed and tortured those gators over the years. And I told myself I'd defend them pro bono if it ever came down to a hearing" I also like the horror that Backwater Gary was able to trigger in me. Well written and nicely told.
Finished the book and here to revise my review. The 5 stars remains constant. The first 1 was good, the second one very good, the third one, wow! , wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! My best of best still remain Incident set in stone. And the last one is indescribable! I loved the way you had put your niece Darlyn as one of the characters. I get it she loves Simon Says. ..
The book is amazing, adverious, full of myster for Mr. Oryan to solve and full of comedy and jokes to laugh about. .....Can not recommend enough....
laughed at this: "Pagan idols don't wear skirts," was Christina's exasperated reply. Mother sighed. "If you bend over like that, you won't need one either."
really great ready....Not so sure what was wrong with her. Hallucinations maybe.
"You got it," the cat promised, after which the mouse completed his magic words, and, saying it was magic powder, threw dirt in the cat's face. By the time the cat cleaned itself, the mouse was long gone.
very funny,so great. Don't people see this guys works...
highly recommend. ....
But then, above the wind, the thunder, and the rain, Amy heard a soft meow. And, looking down, he saw his playmate from long ago: a poor, rain-soaked mother cat with three kittens huddled at her feet. And from somewhere in the deep dark recesses of his hardened heart Amy remembered those early days when he and the cat romped together playing tag. "Even you," he told her. "Even you, my only friend, abandoned me to loneliness." And it was only because of the raindrops falling on his face that he was able to disguise his tears.
"I am sorry," the mother cat apologized. "I did not mean to hurt you. It is just that I grew up quicker than you, and I had to do grown-up things. But won't you, please, for the sake of a friendship that once was, allow my poor kittens to share your hill? They are small and innocent and had nothing to do with the pain I caused you."
A very well written story teaching about forgiveness and friendship. Not to forget humour, really funny.
very nice. what attracted me was the title, since it all turned out I couldn't read the language in the description.
I woke early in the morning and want I wanted was a fast, nice, awesome read and this book granted me that.
more like a science fiction of some sort but with a very surprising end.
First we shut down all power on the planet: nuclear, electrical, chemical…"
"You can do that?"
"Of course we can. We're aliens, remember? After which we broadcast our demands for Earth's surrender."
"Umm," Jo raised a hand, "if you switch off the power, how will anyone hear you?"
I really laughed out loud to that one.
A well written short story, full of surprising humour. Really a good read, with an enjoyable story that left me wanting more.
I had to re-read this book, and I can say: I surely made an err with my previous review. Climbed on a band-wagon of the other reviewers.
This was a funny book, a comic to be precise without pictures, it was smartly written and worth to get a five....WOWZA!
loved this part: What I did!" Dan shouted back. "If you hadn't grabbed my arm..."
"We'd have upended the wagon and gone over the side is what we would’ve done." Jean crossed her arms huffily "Then where would we be?"
"If we had gone over," Dan mumbled under his breath, "then at least one of us would be at peace."
"What did you say?"
What am I saying? I loved this story, it had everything with it. Greatly written and explained. Muchly loved the ending.
A very sentimental story about forbidden love. A girl being withheld from what she wants, still she steps up and learn to run.
The writing is good, the characters seem real and it all makes up a perfect tale.
I thought of this line funny :" And although the terrified animal fled far away from civilized areas, El Muerto could still be spotted occasionally, searching for his missing head, or a substitute, so he could rest in peace"
This book is just what I needed, a great read. Highly recommend......
A great one, its like indirectly being told 'you can never be another person' as well as one way of saying 'never forget where you come from" As well as another way of saying 'things around you can never change if you don't change yourself' All positivity in this one. Loved it.
" From now on, I will trust my own instincts and not allow myself to be led astray by anyone." I really loved this line.
I might be not of age for this, but I do read anyway and I have to say that this is an excellent read for both kids and adults.
Dear Abby," Christina joked to her reflection in the mirror upon completing her shower. "What does it mean when a man looks deep into your eyes? Answer: it means that you are......" that was a big joke.
I've been looking forward to when the author will release a new book in this series, and I was glad to pick on this one.
It is the longest one in this series but I'm glad the author was able to fit in every detail needed in this book. It starts out funny and great , and ends funny and great.
I highly recommend both this author and the book. .....
I enjoyed this one. An excellent read, the very best in this series, with good comedy and jokes.
I really hope this book will be put on screen in the future. Wonderfully done. Tough luck Mr.Fax gets to be the treasure.
I love reading this guyz books. And this time it has nothing to do with a murder, only an O-nus (burden of proof) that sees a maybe innocent man sent in gaol. Haven't finished it yet...and will surely come back to revise my review after I finish.
One good preternatural tale. Had to give it that much attention.
This is what I got: Becky did die when she made that wrong turn to the lonely, dark road. But even then, as a dead spirit ( ghost) she still seeks answers. So in her ghost spirit she visit this old librarian woman, who maybe have psychic powers. She finds the answers she was seeking, that she was the whole planner and do of the horny professors death (revenge & justice), Now she asks forgiveness. After that, her soul comes to rest, and her body remains are saved for that time when the body will be reunited.
It was short. But if you read it carefully, you'll understand and appreciate the story as much as I did.
" Life isn't living in the moment, it's making moments worth living.” I do agree with that quote but I think it would have been more meaningful if it was "life isn't just living in the moment, it's making moments worth living" truly each one of us should know that we're living in tomorrow's good old days, thus the question "how would you like to be remembered"
No spoiler, well explained, Zechariah does make it clear that a life worth living is that which is lived for others.
This was a really nice read, short but surely deserves a five star.
A man is about to jump off a building to suicide himself, when a seemingly no hero guy wokes in, and somehow, none internationally makes the man postpone his suicide plan.
This is a very interesting story, funny as well. Couldn't at first get to tell who was telling the truth, whether Holly was really pregnant for Buddy or whether Buddy made up the story about the vasectomy as an excuse, but then he wouldn't have gone far as to kill her if it wasn't the truth, guess Holly made all that up because Buddy was like well off and financially balanced.
Loved this sentence: Earlier that day someone commented how spring showers make everything come up out of the ground. "I'm sure the guys at a cemetery will be thrilled," he had responded.
Spoiler: I kinda of feel the story didn't end, more because it has a sad ending, but what can I say it was a great read, I'm sure the moster was finally defeated, so entertaining.
Let me admit: I like your writing, this was a great read. Found it funny as well. The style was one unique thing.
Pain always demands to be felt. It doesn't matter/choose who or where, we all experience pain (cliché: what doesn't kill you, make you stronger)
Dis-ah Dora Piaza come-ah you from Stanley Ku Brick-ah Cump-nee where da latest inna series of build-in collapses jus-tah-cur."
"I say," a bewildered onlooker shook his head. "I can't understand a thing she's saying."
This is not the best in the series but it's sure as fun and great as the rest of them.
Liked this line "Positive is a gorgeous word makes you feel optimistic, hopeful and promising. Unless it shows on your medical examination report"
Lao Wang is an illegal, non licenced 30 year old driver, he's kinda bad, but not very bad, only overcharges his clients and can't seem to take responsibility for his life.
He is single and his loving, caring mom sets him up on an online date, only they need Lao Wang health status (funny thing). Lao visit a hospital and is found cancer positive (sad).
Lao Wang realizes he hasn't been a good person and commit suicide.
A few minutes after his death, the confirmed medical results are out and its only benign cancer.
Good story, I always find Chinese people funny.
My God, this was an excellent read, held my attention to the very last.
Funny words coming from a cow: Retiring to the shade of a weeping willow, Akkadia sat with eyes closed, chanting, "Om... Om..." Only to have a Jersey cow walk up and say, "You're doing it backward."
And the creative one: "Wait! Don't you think it unfair for a superhero to use exceptional powers against a mere mortal? Put aside your magic and fight mano a mano. I warn you tho, I'm an expert in the art of cowrate."
Like I always say, Mr Holds works never let you down, number one fan really, maybe second from Ms Michelle, but still number one.
Readers! Check out the authors other works, they are exceptional.
He didn’t die but arrived intact on the bank of the river. As he lay there saturated, looking up at the bridge, he wondered what other choices were left to him now that the suicide club was excluded. There really is no club you can belong to when you’re Clark Kent…
As the saying goes "the meaning of life consist in the fact that it makes nonsense to say that life has no meaning"
"Pinky," the fairy god-pig spoke gently. "Your polka-dots weren't just 'part' of you. They were 'you'. They were what made you — 'you'. And without them — well, you're just 'not'."
A very well written story about self love, not fitting, being different, friendship and acceptance.
At first I thought Thana was having one of those déjà vu days, then I was surprised by a turn of events, which was good really because I wasn't expecting any of that.
Apart from the format, the book reads quite simple, nice and entertaining. The very best actually I've ever read by this author.
I liked the last line ""May I suggest Milady take a taxi? Your materializations have landed you in enuf trouble without showing up... shall we say 'unprepared'? After all, Justice may be blind, but judges are not." WOWZA.
I will not spoil the fun by quoting my favourite lines in this book. Better read it yourselves. .........
WOW! Some disturbing tales here.
I would say I liked them all, but not the same really. The seer of possibility was nice, only wasn't impressed with the tragic ending, same applies to the second seer. And the one about the phantom arm? I will say wow to that one. So engaging, page Turner, right show of emotions, provoking fear, funny, it was authentic. And the one about Christmas? I'll only say 'merry Christmas to those who read that one'
YOU'RE AN EXCELLENT WRITER. YOU'VE THE TALENT TO TELL A STORY IN SPADES REALLY. .....
Great read. One of those that keep you up all night.
The problem is that there's a lot of characters to keep up with. But it just goes right with the setting and everything.
Reads real like an experience, I wouldn't be surprised if the author is a nurse or something.
And it would surely make a great movie, I think you're my favourite female writer at Smashwords, thanks for the free awesome read.
So yeah, did re-read this book and I've to say that nothing has changed except I was wrong about my previous review. Mostly because I didn't notice that the book was tagged erotica, but hey most people don't do tags.
When it comes to a good adventure and good humour read. James Hold is one of the best. I never really mind reading the synopsis, when starting to read one of his books. I just grab one and start reading because he never disappoints. And this one is no exception.
Spoiler: I've read so many works by James Hold. I've seen his better better works like his recent extremely exciting book 'Incidental Contact'
This is why I'm rating this book four stars because it's nothing compared to his recent works.
Liked this line: "I saw the surprise on his face, and then the look he gives when he’s thinking. I could write a book about his facial expressions. He might as well be speaking out loud, they’re that explicit. He’d never be able to kill someone and get away with it, because his body language alone pantomimes what’s going through his head."
Quite a nice read, very funny actually, I liked it.
Despite the slang, and a lot of informal words? This definitely reads like a James Hold book.
I believe what makes a great series, is the ability of the author to convince his readers of reading the next book, and this one clearly hooked me to the next book in the series.
I will certainly be reading more works by this author.
The problem I can say about his books is that he only provides one option in which they can be downloaded. And I don't like using my computer for reading, I love using kindle. So Aning? Would really appreciate, if you widened your downloading options.
While I have my own reasons as to why I believe in God, and miracles not being on my top list. I find this book absolutely touching.
I often tell me myself this fact: 'whether I believe in God or not, he will never cease to exist.'
I often again do judge how good a book is by its ending, and this book last two chapters were amazing.
I enjoyed it, loved it. Five stars for me. Great work.
I'm a football man. Even played some back in junior high, only stopped when it costed me a tooth. But you don't have to like wrestling to enjoy this book.
It's deadlaughoutloud till you can't breathe.
Just have to read book 4 and see what becomes of K O'Wolf A.K.A. Dick-head.
Okay, I really liked book 1 of this series.
Book 2? Not really my thing. I didn't mind the foul-language, but the story? Wha....?
Complete absurd. Comes out like a 'Crazy ex-girlfriend' startup song.
Cheap? But still have regrets buying this book.
“I asked him about his powers. He seemed embarrassed.
"The I'm not that powerful," he said. "Men and women who risk their lives to keep us safe. Single mothers working two jobs to put food on the table. Kids who do homework instead of drugs. That's power.”
This was a very nice, short, kind of sad touching read. Just what I needed before going down to sleep. 🤐
This was a very emotional touching story. The characters, the setting and the ending? Will surely stay with me.
"The things that makes us important, are not the things that we think makes us important. The things that makes us important are always with us and have always been with us" Andre' Mwansa
liked this line "I got hypnotized by the way she moved, smooth and melodic,
like a cat stretching around its owner's legs. But it wasn't her beauty what captivated me; it was the
confidence that she exuded."
🤘🏾 To demonstrate his skill, Royal Shaft drew his bow and said, "See that teensy weensy insect buzzing over there?" Without waiting an answer, he loosed the arrow which appeared to sail under the creature. "You missed," Akkadia observed. "It would appear that way," Shaft smiled. "But I guarantee that fly will never reproduce again."
This was great. Funny as well actually 😂. The second longest in the Akkadia series but worth the time. Someone try this author please. 👏🏾
Not as funny as the rest of James Hold books. But hey, this didn't even need to be funny. I like the way the author funnily compared today to the old days in terms of fusion and everything. I get it this story isn't there to judge anyone but kinda reminds us of the people we were back then and how much has changed. Not literally anyway, because some still dress up like cavemen.
Hush," the Yegua Kid brushed her tawny mane. "Your wound is too far gone to treat. Rest, and let it come as it will."
"Thank you. You're a good man."
"Most of us are. It's the greedy few who make us look bad."
"You’re not a big boy until you can smoke!"
I remember trying that (smoking) with my twin sis (yeah,we're twins) and her bestfriend (Samantha) . We were only seven then I guess. "You’re not a big
boy until you can smoke!" Thats one of the lines we used to use to dare each other.
Leason was learned at first try. Samantha was first to try and coughed so hard, and yes it wasn't real tobacco we were smoking.
The worst part was she barfed as well.
She went home sick, and the next day her mom came furiously knocking at the door with the police claiming I was a drug dealer, and almost got me arrested.
Thanks for reminding me of my childhood.
