Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was Blood Moon Over Africa, the plot has been in my imagination for years until my wife convinced me to sit down and write it. I did thinking that it would be two page short story for a magazine.
What is your writing process?
I just let my imagination flow, when I sit down, it is almost like turning on a tap and the ideas just come.

Smashwords book reviews by Paul Zunckel

  • The Slow Burn on March 05, 2015

    A very sexy naughty novel by a new author. If it makes you feel all hot under the collar, then it has achieved what the author set out to do. I wish this author all the best in her travels into Erotica.
  • The Immortal Design on April 28, 2015

    This is an amazing story, a wonderful fresh approach to the Dracula Saga and it falls into the category of a real page turner, and that is what it did to me, as I had the privilege of reading The Immortal Design while the author was traveling down the dark road, and she kept me waiting for the next chapter, and wanting more. The two main characters are really great, and the love that simmers under the surface of all the deceit,horror and history in the story will have you reaching out to them and supporting them as the story reaches its climax. This is a very well written book, and the author put her heart and soul into it, and I wish her all the best. The Immortal Design will transport you into another world,and at the end of the journey, you will close the book, sit back and say,"Man that was a great read."
  • Paradise: In The Garden of Eden on April 29, 2015

    This is an amazing story, sipping wine with the Gods, and living in a Paradise that should never have been lost. This is how it was meant to be. The author writes as if following a narrator, maybe a voice in her head with a special message. Look beyond the words and maybe there is a special message in there for all of us. Paradise made me realize how full of strife the world we live in has.
  • Paradise: In The Garden of Eden on May 01, 2015

    This review is one that the author received via e-mail, which I have posted for her. This is a truly beautiful story Your beginning was excellent and I was gripped and wanted to read on to find out more about what the old and young woman discussion. Your descriptiveness is Awesome, in chapter 1& 2. Best I have ever read about 'The ancient Ones, and Jesus. ( have read quite a bit of spiritual stuff and about angels etc) 5 stars
  • One Shoe in Thailand on Oct. 19, 2015

    I had the privilege of reading this novel before it was released and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a book that is a page turner. Is it fact or fiction, only Mr Paw will know the truth behind it, and he is not talking. It will grip you, but also make you think...what is real, and what is not. A riveting read and a damn good book.
  • Hope and Courage on Feb. 21, 2016

    This is Mr Alexander Paw at his best...This book is by far the best he has ever done and he can only grow from strength to strength from this springboard. The story is gripping, the characters believable, and the plot is just short of brilliant. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a fantastic read...this one is a page turner.
  • Policewoman on Feb. 21, 2016

    Policewoman is a story written from the heart. Mr Paw takes you into the corridors of power, and spins you a tale making you wonder what is indeed fiction and what is fact. Mr Paw has the ability to make you want more. Read Alexander Paw...he keeps you guessing. All in all a powerful story...very well told, designed to keep you entertained.
