It is no secret that I used to be a big fan of Thomas Rydder's blog. He was one of my favourite bloggers. Not any more!!
NOW he is one of my favourite bloggers and AUTHORS!! I received his books as gifts from a friend and HOLY FREAKING MOLY!!! Is there nothing this guy can not do well??
It is therefore that I have especially taken a day off from my usual book promo's to surprise him with a special feature on his books, and so I could give you a taste of what I am talking about?
First YOU HAVE TO READ this book!!
A small town in western Pennsylvania – quaint, simple, peaceful. That is, until The Elder takes up residence. He has an agenda – one that is 1,000 years old, and cannot be denied. One that will change the lives of many – and end the lives of any who interfere.
This incredible book follows the lives of Beth and Lizzie as they move to a small town. Everything is great until The Elder shows up. But the Elder is not a human or animal. He is an immortal werewolf. As he sets in motion the final plans to fulfil his destiny, the County Sheriff named Frank along with Beth meet theirs. This book will have you on the edge of your seat!! The tension and suspense of the events and between the main characters fighting the inevitable is the stuff of legendary books. Here is my Amazon review:
WARNING!! FUTURE BEST SELLER, November 14, 2013
I was gifted this book by a friend and not really one for Werewolves and Vampires I delayed reading it. But, oh boy!! Once I picked up this book it was hard to put it down. The Clearing starts off with a build up as you get to know the characters and then goes straight into suspense and intrigue. Through out the book there is mystery, plot twists and plenty of action to boot. This book is well written, funny, imiginative and had everything I love in a good book.
It is easy to read, follow and relate to no matter what age you are. There is no doubt in my mind that this will be a bestseller soon and this is one authors I am keeping my eye on.
BUY IT NOW!!
The next book is this bad boy!!
3 BOOKS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!!!
1. "Do Unto Others" (short story) - Jeremy is a street hood, lawless and unchained. When he is wronged by a local businessman, it becomes his mission to seek revenge. But his new enemy has friends - ones that don't take kindly to intruders.
2. "Colors" (short story) - Harrison Street...attorney, biker wannabe, coward. When he finds the bike of his dreams, it seems too good to be true. It is.
3. "Simona Says" (novella) - Simona has had it rough. Death, disenchantment, and disappointment are all part of her life. She wants to be happy for a change, and she's willing to do just about anything to find some. Anything.
All three these stories are spooky stuff, but hidden right there where you least expect it, is a moral lesson and a thought provoking "what if" which lurks in the shadows. They are well worth a read and without exception as well written and sometimes funny as one would expect from the brilliant mind of Thomas Rydder.
Your soul will be restless no more!
After reading his books, I have no doubt in my mind that he will become one of the all time greats in the Fiction world. Join the ride!!

Other MUST READS written by Lucy Pireel
A young, successful woman finds herself attracted to a man who is known for his promiscuity. She has no idea if he wishes to play with her the way she wants him to.
While working together, they become closer. When she finally dares to reveal her desires, he only only asks her if she's ready to say 'please'. After she does, the games begin. But where will they end?
These eight short stories revolve around obsession, revenge, craving, love, and Death.
Whether it be a woman in need of rescue, a man who hungers for his wife, a demon lost, or wishes come true, all characters want something. Badly.
But ... You can't always get what you want, but you might just get what you need.
Underneath the veneer of humanity lies darkness.
Eight deadly tales that explore dark desires in which some do what it takes to obtain what they want, while others are led by events.
Wishes gone wrong, unhealthy obsessions, and cravings to sate. A Menu of Death will take you on a blood-curdling journey that you may not survive
A woman on a deserted road. She has an order to stay but encounters a man. Is he just a man, or the Devil? Will she be saved, can she save herself, or is it all in her mind?
Two writing witches set out to get the man they want.
Will those fallen angels be stronger than the written magic? Or is the pen mightier than the sword after all?
This author has been featured on my blog before and I am sure she will be featured many more times. Her work is short but well written and a great read for those who enjoy the escape.
She has also collaborated with numerous other authors on these books:

Once I read the book, it was decided! I bumped my schedule and asked him for his media kit, because I had to tell you about THIS book. This book you have to read!!
Over the course of writing Our Story, the main character realizes that winning Jennifer back might not be the smartest thing for his heart. In fact, he starts to appreciate the true meaning of the word love, which he finds in Emma.
This is my review:
When I read this blurb, it immediately jumped to my Screw Motherhood, Must Read Now list. I was not disappointed. The sarcasm, wit and humour in this book was right down my alley. The way the author cleverly plugged his first book was genius to say the least!
This book will have men and women wonder if it is a true story. There are moments when you literally want to give this man a wake up shake with a wood chipper and then there are moments that you root for him to just get laid if nothing else!! It's a depressing story to say the least, but somehow when that last page is turned you feel content and happy. I'm not sure if the humour had anything to do with it or not? All I can say is that I loved the writing style, the technique in which he incorporated a story within a story and everything about this book.
“Emma,” I said, using my chin to nudge her and force her eyes toward mine. I didn’t want to use my hands to guide her because that would mean releasing her, and I refused to do that, I refused to let go.
