"2.5 stars

Pretty average story, and probably the best thing I can say about it was that I didn't hate it as much as everyone else. It was readably meh.
I'm thinking that may be the reason for all of the low ratings here. I mean, you're kind of expec..." Read more of this review »

“I mean, electric shock? Isn’t that a bit... electric shock-y?”
Emmett Spain, Old Haunts: A London City Novel

“I looked like a corpse, and not a particularly fresh corpse at that.”
Emmett Spain, Old Haunts: A London City Novel

“From his vantage point on the window sill, The Dude cocked a rear leg back over his head and proceeded to lick at his private parts with a thoroughness that would make a lesser man blush. I shook my head at the sight and mumbled, “Show off,” in the animal’s general direction. For a moment the tiny kitten hesitated, leg still extended behind its head, face still over its crotch. It narrowed its eyes at me, let out a displeased sound, then promptly got back to work.

I suppose there are worse things than being a cat.”

David Riggins Emmett,

I have recently published a newly edited version of my book, Boys of the fatherless and I would like to get some honest reviews of the new edit. The Kindle version is currently .99 but you can read the first chapter for free on Amazon. I am also running a giveaway on goodreads for 10 printed copies.

Thank you for your help.

David Riggins
