I just finished my second foray into the world of audio books with the release of "McGowan's Call" by Audible.com. For those who enjoy "reading" this way, I have a deal for you. Audible has listed this 4 hour presentation at $15, but they gave me a number of codes so that I can provide free downloads for intrepid book lovers. If you send me an email (rob@smithwrite.net) I'll send you a code (as... Read more of this blog post »

Rob Smith and 3 other people liked Edwina Callan's review of McGowan's Call:
McGowan's Call by Rob Smith
"Reverend Davis McGowan isn't some hell-fire and brimstone spewing, pulpit pounding, holier-than-thou, televangelist-wannabe schmuck, but a kind hearted, wise, gentle shepherd who lovingly tends to his flock, as a man of God should. He accepts all,..." Read more of this review »

Rob Smith If you'd like to have any of my books, I'd be happy to send along a copy. It looks like you are a reader and a reviewer. That's a great plus for any author trying to build a platform. Thanks.


midnightfaerie Thanks for the add! I look forward to discussing books with you!

Nancy Brady His new book is out: Shrader Marks: Keelhouse. It's two books for the price of one. It contains an updated version of Night Voices and its sequel, Keelhouse. When I started reading Keelhouse, I could not put it down, staying up way past my bedtime. The updated version of Night Voices is well worth the re-read, but if you haven't read Night Voices, you won't miss a thing because they are now together!
