    (no rating)
    Gene Parola is a master story teller, and he writes adventure,mystery, and intrigue, with unusual incite and understanding. “The Devil to Pay” is a must read. ------William Wayne Dicksion, a published author, and an avid reader.
  • Hurricane Handbook on Feb. 14, 2011

    This is also a MUST READ for all who own boats. Interesting advice Gene Parola gives that is certainly worth heeding. Hopefully, you won't need to experience this problem, but better be prepared just in case.
  • The Fool Who Invented Kissing on April 15, 2012

    The title is catchy. It takes Doug Long to write about this subject, kissing, what we have always taken for granted! The short stories are really cute! And the art work is great -- very funny. I took advantage of the coupon offer; suggest you do the same and enjoy his wit and humour, as Carol mentions below.
  • Boob Tube (A Soap Opera Novel) on April 26, 2012

    Boob Tube is cleverly written, it is interesting and entertaining. It reveals the ruthless behavior, emotions, and actions that takes place behind the scene in theatrical productions. The authors make the characters so real that it is difficult for the reader to not take sides in their arguments. A thoroughly enjoyable read. I like the surprise ending.
  • Conceived in Darkness on Feb. 24, 2013

    I just now bought it and read it. Thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a captivating story -- I didn't know what to expect -- but found it delightful,easy reading. A wonderful five-star story!
  • Underneath the Mistletoe on Feb. 24, 2013

    I enjoyed this book, too. A short read but has a very good heart-warming story.
  • Smashwords Style Guide on July 15, 2013

    The Style Guide is very explanatory with important steps to follow in order for your submission to be accepted by the various ebook reading devices and apps. There is more to just writing the words and submitting it to Smashwords. I downloaded the RTF version and edited it, deleting the extraneous page breaks. I then printed the book, thus making it easier to refer to. I will share it with my fellow members of our writing group. Great work, Mark Coker! Thanks!
  • Trade Wind to Hawaii on Sep. 03, 2013
