CP Bialois


Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves.

For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them.

I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick.

As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics.

I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me.

While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

  • Moon's Easy Money on April 24, 2015

    This was written by an author I’ve been wanting to read for some time, and I finally worked my way through my TBR pile to get to him, and it was a fun and interesting read. I don’t believe in spoilers, so I’ll try not to give any away. I’m a huge sci-fi fan, so I enjoyed the setting being on Mars in the distant future. The story itself seems straight forward and has a few moments scattered throughout that don’t seem to make sense or feel strange in that I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong, but everything fell into place in the closing pages. I’m good at figuring out what’s going to happen, but this had enough twists that I couldn’t and that made it so much more enjoyable. The thing that stuck out at me the most was the different style of writing. I don’t see too many books willing to break the third wall and speak to the reader. This not only did that, but speaks at us as well. By the end, the insults thrown out make sense and, depending on your point of view, you’ll cringe. In many ways it was refreshing to see a different and unique style, not to mention that it keeps you thinking (at least it did me) after it’s finished. I love when authors attempt something new and it works out! :) As for the erotic portions, they didn’t have the verbose wordage many books use to describe the sex. Instead, it was kept to the minimum and a “real-time, real-life” style that moved the scenes at a brisk pace, but kept them interesting at the same time. If you’re up for an interesting, intense, and fun ride, then this is the book for you.
  • Reah Leah the White: From Cat to Queen on Aug. 28, 2015

    This was a book I’ve had on my TBR (To Be Read) list for a while, and I’m happy I finally got to it. Not to mince words, but it was worth the wait. First off, it’s fair to point out that the author’s writing technique is different than anything else I’ve read. The story is literally told to us by the characters as they fight among themselves over certain points and who gets to tell what. I really enjoy reading books with a different take. To me, it’s a good thing to see authors try something new, especially when it works out. It took me back to my childhood when we’d tell one another stories or listened to others at events. The story flowed really well and kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. I have to admit, I was also interested to see what the storytellers would accuse the others of. The characters were an interesting group. They kept it fresh while telling their story or interacting with one another. I definitely look forward to reading the rest of the series and other works by the author.
  • Miranda Jones Book 1 Resurrection on Aug. 24, 2018

    I’m a huge fan of coming-of-age stories, but also, over the years romance-type stories have become a guilty pleasure and this was every bit of fun as most of the genre I’ve read. Miranda is a well- written and thought out character that really pulls us into her world and daily struggles as she navigates her newly expanded life and the interesting obstacles that await her. The story is well paced, which is surprising given it follows the main character through her daily life for the most part. For me, that speaks to the author’s ability to tell a story and I look forward to reading her future adventures.
