The Starving Artists – Howard Casner – $.99c!

A great new review for my book The Starving Artists… To celebrate, I am offering the collection for $.99, one penny under a dollar, until Tuesday, 9/18. AND DON’T FORGET TO LEAVE A REVIEW

 

The review: This is a very good read. Each story is creepy or unsettling and just long enough to get your attention. The one about the artists was a little too close to home! The last story could have been a screenplay. It’s so vivid and satisfying. All together an enjoyable experience-Thanks CD

 

For those who like the weird, the odd, the out there, here are nine stories with supernatural and sci-fi themes, from a DJ who might or might not be the last person on earth, to a visit from aliens about our nuclear capability, to a young boy whose life changes when “he” came out of the desert. Expect the unexpected in THE STARVING ARTISTS and other stories (http://ow.ly/Vd8630l8w0W) –

 

The reviews are glowing:

 

Howard Casner…has a unique imagination and a strong voice. Each of these finely-crafted tales creates its own little universe of surprises and satisfaction…predicated on suspense and sleight of hand…It should be noted – and this is an especially valuable quality for short stories – that we understand these characters immediately: Casner does a lot with spare writing. He says what he means, gets off the page and lets the reader’s imagination take care of the rest. 5 stars without reservation. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did.

 

Casner’s stories will knock you out with his brilliant style, quirky characters, darkly comedic dilemmas, and savage wit. A few of them are so exquisitely twisted and downright uncomfortable that you’ll put your hands over your eyes, but peek between your fingers because they’re so wickedly juicy. High recommend!

 

So help me make this month’s rent…okay, my next meal. The Starving Artists and other stories, now available at Amazon http://ow.ly/Vd8630l8w0W for $.99. Also, check out the second edition of my screenwriting book, More Rantings and Ravings of a Screenplay Reader, also on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GD1XP9Y

Happy Release Day! – Maraukian Wars – bk 2!

This year has been very interesting, to say the least, and after working from Jan to March with the fab Michael Chatfield in a stint only a few could actually stick to, I’m proud to say that our first co-written piece in his series launched today. 🙂 huge grin on my face!

When Mike asked me to help out on this series, I was a little hesitant. Already 5 books in writing in someone elses world is not that easy. But, I considered all my options and for those who know me, they also know I love a challenge. So, stepping up my reading game, I blitzed through the Harmony War’s and soo fell in love with the characters he’d created. I don’t lie when I say, Mark Victor stole my heart. After getting to know Mark and Tyler throughout the first 5 books, I was eager to dig in and create with Mike the visions he saw for them into the Maraukian Wars.

We had our fair share of life trials and tribulations in the 54 days we sprinted our asses off, but the results I think speak for themselves.

I hope you guys will love the extra I bring to the characters you already love, and I hope that there’s a few more which may also steal your hearts.

So go check these badass covers out, by the amazing Fred Gambino – https://www.facebook.com/fred.gambino.6 and pick up the series…
