For example, I have about eight project ideas in which I have put into motion currently, therefore, if I'm stuck on one I simply move to another. I realize this isn't always possible, but for now, it seems to be working.
In the rare occasion where I simply cannot write anything, I instead focus on research until inspiration strikes me. To understand reactions, people's trauma, how things work, are all things authors take into consideration. As such, research in these fields does an author an incredible service to the realism of the characters or how certain obkects operate. (less)

Time was taken to make that character relatable or "hateable," so the relation to the characters is always appreciated. Moreover, when someone notices the subliminal themes just below the surface of the actual plot. In some work, such things can go unnoticed and its truly sad. The author takes time to intertwine their story and such elements, so it's quite the gradifying nod when a reader takes notice. (less)

The Farm by Sean K. Vlk
"A quick little read

Nothing really bad about this story, just short. Storyline is good, characters are good for the short read. Might check out his other works"

*free copy given for possibility of an honest review*

First of all, let me begin by stating that this genre is outside of my usual read. Typically, I do not go for the supernatural, love story.

*Free copy received in exchange for the possibility of an honest review*

A fine thirty-minute read. A tale of bloodlust, existentialism, desire, and an average man's need for more. The old adage always rings true: be careful what you ask for.

I hate doing so to a fellow author, but unfortunately, I must give my two cents about this piece. Even if it means a bad critique. Although, seeing the overwhelming amount of support it has received, I am certain that it will do nothing to Mr R

A fantastic Saturday night read!!!


As L'Amour is known as one of the elite of the Western genre, naturally, I could not resist snagging a copy of this book when I was presented the opportunity. Needless to say, it did not disappoint.

A wonderful, well-written short.

The plot was original, fun, and the dialogue and characters were believable.

The language was plain, yet, pointed. No unnecessary ornamentations or attempts at poetic flair--a straightforward read.

“Everyone wants to see themselves as the hero of their own story. When he's (Agent 216) with the State, he makes perfectly good arguments because he feels he's doing right, despite the atrocities he's committing on behalf of the State. He's definitely a villain at the start, somebody you really love to hate. Then, as things transition, it humanizes him to the point where you're really rooting for him.”
