Publisher info

I'm currently a 24 year old writer. My interests include fantasy and science fiction, to the broadest sense of the word. While I currently detest vampires with a fiery passion, I've decided to bring science fiction back to life until fantasy resembles less on the vampires and more on the plot. :D

While I'm outgoing, live in New Zealand, have two pets and generally spend most of my time trying to stay upright, I'm also well into the first draft of my "second" novel.

Smashwords is one of those places to learn and breathe words, where books are easily accessible and well written. My writing style will keep to that, with exciting adventures waiting those who dare.

Smashwords book reviews by A.J De Vial

  • Spires on April 01, 2011

    The characters, though few, really seem to come to life in Spires. J A Marlow brings the world to life through a first person point of view, taking us inside the main characters world with ease. If you're a fan of science fiction and like that fantastical element, then dive into this book.
  • The String Weavers (The String Weavers - Book 1) on July 03, 2011

    This is an amazing adventure right from the get-go. The String-Weavers follows Kelsey, a young girl who has spent most of her life on earth and follows her in a whirl-wind adventure throughout the galaxy. Well worth the read, especially when she stands up for everything she believes in and gains the confidence that she needs to save the world! 5/5
  • Author Vs. Character on Nov. 28, 2016

    I found the book hilarious. I've had interesting conversations with my character's before, but none that involved Woodle Pooves! They are literally one of the best conflicts in the book. I feel sorry for the poor character and would like to see more of him!
