Editorial Reviews for The Rose Vol. 1

“This ambitious novel plays unashamedly in the pulp-SF sandbox. . . A conspiracy mavens dream, packed with gory alien-vampire action.” ~ KIRKUS REVIEWS

“An action packed no holds barred adventure with cinematic flair. Great for fans of Jeff Vandermeer’s Annhilation, L. Ron Hubbard’s Battlefield Earth, and John Ringo’s A Hymn Before Battle.” ~ Booklife Reviews

“Forget what you know about vampires and prepare to get a new bite from the tastefully different rules in The Rose Vol. 1. Bringing a new twist to a well-known genre is usually a risk, but PD Alleva has found a brilliant way to make it work. The Rose Vol. 1 is a fantastic recommendation for fans of vampire, fast-paced action, heart-racing, and dark-th

Mindfulness Techniques to Combat Writers Block

We’ve all been there. That moment when the mojo just seems to slip away. When we stare at our word document with thoughts rattling in our skull. WTF? Where did it go? Even the thought of plucking away at our keyboard seems futile.

P.D. Alleva added a status update: good morning Goodreads. I uploaded the first in a string of quotes from my upcoming psychological horror novel, Golem, this morning. Been editing Golem for the past month and have ARC copies available, although the cover continues to come to fruition (I love my designer and can't wait for the cover reveal). Check out the new quote on the Golem book page here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

“Books and movies are like a blueprint…a survival manual disguised as fiction. As folklore. Because the truth hides in plain sight and those that see have to hide and those that can’t see…well, they’re just a part of the plan.'
~ Excerpt from a NYPD Investigation, November, 1951”
