Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Everything. I love to read good horror, thriller and speculative fiction. Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Ted Dekker, Joe Hill, all those guys. I like some John Grisham too, but if it's got strong characters and a good story, I'll read it.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle Touch, although the Fire is nice, and way more functional in some ways - the touch simulates the written page better and I don't get distracted by Facebook that way.

Jeffery considered himself a pretty good guy. He never bothered anybody and he never bothered to get involved. One day he witnesses a terrible event and does nothing. That lack of action may cost him.

Smashwords book reviews by Michael Wright

  • Smashwords Style Guide on Aug. 15, 2011

    This guide was very easy and almost fun to read. Coker shows you how to do what you need to do to upload stories on Smashwords in a simple, concise, and humorous fashion that doesn't make you scratch your head in confusion or become bored to tears.
  • Writing Critique: A Horror Short Story on Aug. 20, 2011

    This was a pretty cool story, very different and very interesting. Over the words was this hanging fog of dread so essential to the horror genre. Nice work.
  • The Beast of Bridgewater on Aug. 25, 2011

    Neat story, I definitely saw the Lovecraft influence in the story.
