Death Do Us Part: PRE-ORDER available!

My new novel, Death Do Us Part, will be releasing on both paperback and ebook on February 1’st. HOWEVER, you can pre-order the ebook right now for only $3.99 on Amazon. It will be downloaded to your device immediately on the first. Death Do Us Part is my third published novel and easily my favorite of all of them (though they’re all great, trust me, I’m unbiased). Here is the link and back cover synopsis…

Amazon link

Not all love stories are happy. Not all tragedies are sad. Not everyone is exactly how they seem, and not every story goes exactly how you would think.

For Mark, life was easy, and he was content… He had no way of knowing he was truly empty inside until he stumbled upon something that made him feel more alive than ever before. Once he felt that way, he could never go back.

A modern tale of love, sex, murder, and everything in between.

Thank you to everyone for the support, whether you purchase the book or not!

Ready Player One Comic-Con trailer review

flat,800x800,070,f.u3.jpg

Easter Egg! The Trailer! I’m serious, try to catch all the easter eggs in this ONE trailer on your first watch. You won’t be able to!

Now, I’m going to be very controversial here and tell you that I am actually quite disappointed by this trailer. It hurts me to say it, having loved the book and wanting to love this trailer, but I just don’t like it. I realize that books are books and movies are movies, but the only thing that reminds me of the book in any way are the stacks in the beginning. Other than that I know nothing of this film and it appears to me to be a CGI cluster-fuck… Granted, there is a high possibility that we know nothing on purpose but who knows? Steven Spielberg has the reigns on this and could very well deliver something a novel of this stature deserves.

Tough Sh*t book review

12405612.jpg

Tough Shit, but with a star I guess, so Tough Sh*t is a memoir by Kevin Smith. And, if Mr. Smith is reading this I mean ABSOLUTELY no offense, but holy fuck was I surprised at how good this was! I didn’t know much of anything about Kevin Smith before reading this. My knowledge of him was that he was Silent Bob, a nerd, liked hockey, was annoying, and talked about his fatness. Which, isn’t necessarily untrue, I just have a lot of respect for him now and see the depth of his career and intelligence. Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good (hell of a title) tells Kevin Smiths story from Childhood on. He tells you, in his own voice, about his trials and tribulations as a director/writer and he goes as far back as Clerks, giving you the run down on his entire career along with the doubts he had in himself, and the relationships he had. This book was meant to be inspirational to it’s readers, and tell the story of Kevin Smith. It achieved both of those things very deeply with me, which I was not expecting at all when I picked it up as a casual read. It may not be that interesting to anyone who is not a fan of Kevin Smiths, which I am NOW, but I was not before. What I do love though, is the film industry. Obviously, I devoted an entire blog and a good part of my life to it! Hearing him talk about it passionately, stirred my passion as well, and if you love movies or film, it will do the same for you.

My New Book!

As many of you have probably noticed I have been quite absent the last month, though I have tried to stay a little active. Well, that reason is because I have been doing work preparing for the release of my second book which came out this morning! Some of you may or may not know that I am a (self) published author as well as running this site. I couple years back I released my first book entitled Blackout that did pretty well as far as sales and reviews went! Since then I have been struggling to find a new novel to write and came up with a solution… Entertainment 100 is a collection of one hundred of my early favorite posts from my website, now in novel form. It is volume 1 and I will be releasing a new volume between every novel I write. It is listed at $9.99 cents and is being released just in time for the holidays! Of course, you can also get Blackout, my first novel, for the same price if you like my writing style you have seen so for!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trailer review

tumblr_nrbzm9aZK91uaiiudo1_500.jpg

This truly is the golden age for young adult novel adaptations… Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was originally a brilliant YA novel written by Ransom Riggs. The novel itself was extremely original and pulled together by old timey photographs that Riggs found. The movie, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, looks relatively true to the novel except for a few things. But, I wont spoil anything in case you haven’t read it!.. Tim Burton is directing this movie and I will admit that I have never appreciated his directing… I fucking hate it. BUT, nobody could have done this movie justice but this man and it looks like he is toning down his weirdness just enough for this to look great! I don’t know a single one of these kids but I definitely know Eva green and Sam Jackson!.. In the end this trailer was powerful and it gave me goosebumps. It was exciting seeing everything I only previously saw in my imagination… There is so much good material in this novel, if the movie is as good as the trailer and uses the material wisely, we are looking at a great trilogy!

The Fault in our Stars book review

The_Fault_in_Our_Stars.jpg

The Fault in our Stars is my all time favorite book. I have read it multiple times over, and it still hits me every time. TFioS is written by John Green and follows the love story of Hazel and Gus. Unlike most YA romance novels though, Hazel has terminal caner and Gus is a survivor. This book breaks so many rules of a YA romance. While Looking for Alaska had a blowjob scene, this one has multiple tragedies. Though this book is sad, it will also make you laugh. In the same scene I will be on the verge of tears, then burst out laughing… John Green moved to Amsterdam for two months to properly write a chapter of this book set in Amsterdam. That love and dedication to his work is reflected so much through this book. It’s a must read.

American Sniper book review

American_Sniper_book

Reviewing American Sniper is very difficult because Chris Kyle is considered and American hero. Personally though, after reading his book, I believe that though he was very good at his job, Chris Kyle as a person was deplorable. Everyone knows what American Sniper is at this point. American Sniper follows Chris Kyle in his life as a Navy Seal and at home. I had watched the movie long before reading the book and I was definitely not expecting what I read. Reading this book was very difficult. Reading about the nonchalant way he and his friends talked about death and killing. More so than hat, the way he treated his family, and being aware of that fact yet not caring. I will not deny that American Sniper is a good book, and well written. It has an interesting enough story, and if you are interested in guns and the military it is perfect for you. I just had a difficult time getting through it.

Looking for Alaska book review

looking-for-alaska

So it was announced that Looking for Alaska is being made into a movie, which is some of the most exciting news I have gotten in a very long time! Looking for Alaska follows Pudge, a high school student  who goes to a boarding school in search of his great perhaps. Alongside Pudge is his roommate, The Colonel, and a mysterious girl named Alaska. LFA was John Greens debut novel. Greens writing style has not changed much over the years, even in his first novel 10 years ago you equal parts cried and laughed (though I won’t tell you why). One thing that has stuck with him over the years as well, and is very obvious in this, and is possibly his only downfall. John Green tends to write unbelievable main characters. In most, if not every one of his novels the teenagers often don’t talk like teenagers, talking as if they are reading from an expertly crafted script. In my opinion at least, that is his ONLY downfall. The most amazing part about LFA is the teenagers though, they truly behave like teenagers. They smoke, drink, break rules, want to fit in, have meaningless drama, pull pranks, and most of the time their biggest problem is school (a kick-ass school in this I may add). The dialogue is amazing, the story is heart wrenching, and you fall in love with every character. I could honestly go on and on about the beautiful description of the school and the depth of every last character… but just read it.
