  • Flash Fiction Addiction 22 Short Short Stories Volume II on Oct. 03, 2011

    One thing I like about flash fiction is that you get the bare bones of the story right up front. The emotions are felt immediately, piercing your heart and mind, dragging you into the story within seconds. Another thing I like about it is that the stories are short, my attention span isn’t what it used to be. Another thing I like about it is that the stories are short, my attention span isn’t…well… you get the point. Garden Summerland has again created a collection of flash fiction short stories that are both original and compelling. The second book in a two volume series, her anthology is collection of another twenty-two flash fiction stories in different genres, and they are all new, previously unpublished works. You will find a varied selection of paranormal, mystery, & romance inside the cover, a great mix. Some of her works are dark and disturbing, but passion abounds again in this volume, and you feel the characters at the end of their rope, grasping at anything to pull them out of the hole they find themselves in. Sometimes they find it, other times they just let go, letting the darkest core of their being take over. But for the luck of our circumstances, any of us could be there, and that is the really scary part. Delving into the mind of a displaced man, we see the absurdity of the crush he has on a woman that will never be returned, yet you can’t help feeling a pain for him that he will never realize. A love so deep, could you make the ultimate sacrifice to alleviate their pain? Insanity, so real to those experiencing it, who can say that theirs isn’t the true reality? Surprise endings abound, and I love surprise endings. And….there are vampires! Garden Summerland has a grasp of the human psyche that astounds, and her way of expressing these conditions to the reader is exciting, as well as enjoyable to read. I highly recommend the second volume of Flash Fiction Addiction to anyone who likes passionate stories of love, hate, revenge, and forgiveness, stories that are really a reflection of us all.

  • Gaea's Chosen: The Mayday Directive on Oct. 09, 2011

    I am not usually a big reader of Sci-Fi, but once in awhile, you need to go out of your comfort zone to get a new perspective on things, like space/time, worm holes, and humanoid creatures. Gaea's Chosen, while not a long read, is packed full of story! Imagine boarding a spaceship, knowing full well it would be at least 10,000 years before you got to your destination. Who of us could do that? I really have to watch what I say with this book, so I don’t spoil it, but you can only imagine what you (or your body) might experience on a long flight such as this. I did some calculating in my head, and when you woke up, anyone of your family would of course be long gone, and if you had a long distance phone, you could talk to your cousin, 400 times removed! The concept boggles the mind. This book made me think, about a lot of stuff I hadn’t given much thought to. In this action packed novella, you have love, hate, sorrow, action, and adventure. All of the subjects that bring me back to an author’s works. So yes, Gaea's Chosen is definitely worth your time to read, and Cara Michaels is definitely worth your time to follow. Can’t wait for the next book! JT Lewis
  • The Black Dress & The Red Dress Two Twisted Tales on Jan. 19, 2012

    Ever wonder what if? What if...you stood up for yourself? What if...you took it even a little farther? Or, what if you didn't? Garden Summerland has taken the reins of the emotional roller-coaster that is the human mind. Delving into the darkness that is within all of us, she weaves two intricate tales in this short book. One explores submission to the norm, the other...rebellion. This book is an excellent example of the type of stories that make her 'Flash Fiction Addiction' series so popular! Does she have a demented mind, or is she just very in-tune with the range of emotions that make up the human condition? That, my friend, is something you will have to decide for yourself...but if you want my opinion...
  • Retribution on June 29, 2012

    The mind of Garden Summerland is hard at work again in this surprising novella. The long putoff feelings that Wes Nevin experienced in high school has finally lead to....Retribution. This psychological thriller is well written with awesome charactor development. You find yourself liking Wes, while at the same time being repulsed by him. And his hunger for getting even is equally matched by his constant hunger for food! I loved this story! I highly recomend it for anybody that likes a story that gets you involved in the emotions and the action of the crimes!
  • Betrayed Five Tales of Deceit on July 26, 2012

    Garden Summerland's stories always blow my mind! Just when you think you've gotten it figured out...BAM...the story goes sideways, and sometimes upside down and backwards! Although the stories are short (they are Flash Fiction after all), they quickly pull you in. And like fighting gravity, you really don't have a choice in which way you fall! Garden's way with words allows her to quickly grab your attention before you realize what has happened. After that, it's but a short time before you are bumping into the unexpected ending. WTH! Hasn't everyone been betrayed by a deceitful person before? Absolutely! Has it ever hit you like a slap in the face? Most likely. Would you ever seek out deceitfulness, leading to betrayal? Only if you like a wild ride in a book of stories that will blow you away!
  • A Creepy Collection: Six Supernatural Tales on Oct. 07, 2012

    A Creepy Collection is most certainly just that! Garden Summerland's books ALWAYS give me a surprise, as well as pause as I revel in the always unexpected endings! Heavily weighted toward vampires in this collection, (a genre of which I am not really a fan of BTW), they are so much more than just another typical vampire story! You will be happily surprised! You will feel....Creepy! Just in time for Halloween! *(This honest review is based upon free copy of A Creepy Collection that was provided to me, by the author, Garden Summerland.)
  • Sister Sugar on Oct. 26, 2012

    When I took up this book....I sighed. Am I really going to read a YA paranormal romance...with vampires? Guys don't read paranormal romance...with vampires! But I have read much of Garden's work, and there is always a surprising twist to her stories that never ceases to amaze me. So I downloaded, and I read, and I read... The story is awesome! Ok, so there is a little too many vamps...but the story-line is a well thought out and creative adventure into magic and mystery! I am always amazed at when someone creates a new world in a novel. She has indeed created a new world, and a whole new legend to build on. I am totally impressed...and a little jealous! JT Lewis I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
  • Flash Five: 5 Short Short Stories on Feb. 02, 2013

    Surprise is Garden Summerland's middle name! There is nothing I like better than a surprise in a story, whether it be somewhere else in the story or the ending. Flash Five delivers on that surprise, having me shaking my head with every story. Whether you like sexy, supernatural or mysterious...you will find something you like it this little book. 5 Stars...I highly recommend it! JT Lewis I was furnished a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
  • Flash Fiction Addiction 22 Short Short Stories Volume III on March 26, 2013

    Once again Garden Summerland has amazed me with her grasp of how to insert an unexpected ending into her stories. She is the queen of the literary plot twist! Specializing in Flash fiction, she has her readers ensconced in the story within a thousand words, only to kick them off the stool with the ending! As the reader sits there on the floor, all they can say is ‘What the hell’? And they do it with a smile! I can truly recommend this book to anyone that likes a story that will blow them away. 5 Stars! J.T. Lewis I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
  • Almost Perfect on Dec. 14, 2013

    Almost Perfect is a story about unrequited love in an impossible relationship. Not your typical love story, I saw it as a story about choices and sacrifice, and how sometimes we do things for the right reason and they still don’t work out. Garden Summerland always weaves a great story, no matter what genre she writes in, and this one was no exception! I received a copy of this book I in exchange for an honest review.
  • Flash Fiction Addiction 22 Short Short Stories Volume IV on April 09, 2014

    Garden Summerland is the Queen of flash fiction...or at the very least the Princess... Once again, Garden whittles down a story to a thousand words what would take other authors at least a novelette to convey...and yet she does it with such a precise quill that you don't miss the added words. Your heart will race as she sets the stage for what you think is coming, only to be blown away by the ending. Garden's skill at eliciting wildly fluctuating emotions is an amazing thing to behold. It is a skill that I am in awe of. I highly recommend volume IV of her Flash Fiction Addiction series. I received a copy of this work in exchange for an honest review. J.T. Lewis
