The Tallest Tale by Derek Elkins

------------

The Tallest Tale is a parody of tall tales and legends, such as the tales of Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan or Ross Perot. An old man, desperate for whiskey, hobbles into a bar and reveals the tallest tale ever heard about the evils of Pecos Bill and Paul Bunyan, a woman who thought she was a pirate, three Indian braves who were also Shakespearean actors and a wily hero named Prairie Dog Pete. Prairie Dog Pete was the rootinest, tootinest, shaking his bootinest cowpoke in the whole Wide West. He could leg wrestle a cougar with his bare hands, square dance with a pack of grizzlies from sunup to sundown, and drink a cup of sarsaparilla standing on his head while leg wrestling a cougar and square dancing with a grizzly.

An Introduction to Shadow by Derek ElkinsWhen he is saved at the last moment from a monstrous attack, Malcolm, a homeless teenager, follows his savior into a foreign, new world of soldiers and monsters, of masters and mad men, where good and evil clash over the fate of the world. “An Introduction to Shadow”, an adventure horror novel, centers on Malcolm, who is suddenly introduced to a world he never realized existed: a world where the Fallen, monstrous beings whose only existence is to kill, steal and destroy have the capacity to take over the bodies of the living, and the Awakened, warriors exclusively chosen by a mysterious Creator. He soon finds that these two groups have battled for centuries over the lives of mere mortals. As Malcolm is drawn deeper and deeper into this conflict, a war he neither knew nor asked to know about, he must face not only the Fallen, who seem intent on destroying him, but his own inner demons as well. To even participate, he must receive power, he must learn to wield what is placed inside of him and he must learn to traverse the very shadow that wants him dead.

How far would you go to save your son? An autistic boy is taken in the middle of the night by something made from blackness that drags him into the attic and through a portal to a different world. His father is not two steps behind, struggling through an alien landscape where every thought, every whim can be turned into reality. As he searches desperately for his son, he faces an enemy intent on stopping him no matter the cost: an enemy capable of changing his appearance, an enemy who is always one step ahead, an enemy who can turn the very light into darkness.

Deranged Love by Derek Elkins------------

Love is a many splendored thing. It's big and splendored and covered with warts and all kinds of stuff, like emotions and big fluffy hair, like the kind you saw in the Eighties or whatever. For a single price, you get not one, not two but four stories about this crazy little thing called Love. You get the best-selling (at least in the author's mind) story of love, betrayal, and a complete absence of mustaches that is known as "Amish Love Story". In addition, you'll also get that tale of frontier and western glory that is "Prairie Romance". Also thrown in is the story of love in the time of mistletoes, stockings and strange elven creatures known as "A Merry Cliché for Christmas". As a bonus, or incentive or possible bribe, I am also offering a brand new romance, in the same vein as Twilight, Harry Potter and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, comes a new tale of Supernatural Love between a mortal woman and a creature of the other world, a creature of shadows, a creature that is really bony, dresses like a hobo and smells funky. Yes, it's a "Supernatural Love Story". The story of Audrey and her love for the Boogeyman. Truly a timeless love story or at least a story that can't be timed with a normal watch.

Book Review of Dan Brown’s “Inferno”

Okay, so I was working this week and this thought just sprang into my head: you know what Bard and Book really needs?  It needs some book reviews.  I mean, we’re all about bringing Authors and Readers together, and what do readers like more than to read…book reviews.

Well, here is my first review.  I hope you like it. I promise to follow up real soon with a book I’m reading called “Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follet. … Register or log in to access full content

The Driving Dead by Derek Elkins------------

What's worse than an infestation of zombies? How about zombies who can drive... New to the world of the living dead? Still hanging onto the shreds of humanity like stink on a corpse? Hey, maybe you should learn a trick or two on how to survive in your new skin. Maybe you should get an advantage over the rest of your competition. Shuffling around waiting for the living to fall in your hands is for the birds. The real up and coming zombies these days have an advantage because they've learned to embrace technology.
