Book Review: GODBOMB! by Kit Power

GODBOMB! by Kit Power  (Sinister Horror Press, September 2015 release) ISBN # 9780993279393.Disclosure: A digital copy of GODBOMB! was provided by the author at no charge as part of a Goodreads promotional group read, with the hope of an honest unbiased review.     Writer Kit Power’s debut novel is an impressive examination of individual reactions to a shared event that puts the reader directly into the characters’ heads, sharing their deepest thoughts and fears.      GODBOMB! is an intense reading experience that raises a lot of questions about religion and faith, and doesn’t attempt to answer them or persuade the reader to change their own beliefs. Author Power skillfully poses the questions without letting the reader learn of his own personal philosophy. GODBOMB! doesn’t preach. It just brings up these subjects while engaging the reader in an edge-of-the-seat page-turner. It’s a high suspense tale that fits within the horror genre, but is more of a thriller with horrific elements. …

ComixTribe monthly hardcover giveaway

EDITOR’S NOTE: Continuing our features on indie publisher ComixTribe, courtesy of publisher Tyler James . . . . .Recently, I shared a little bit about what makes ComixTribe different.Today, I want to tell you about something we're most proud of...Our hardcovers.It's a beautiful, brilliant world we live in where scrappy small-presses with a small but fiercely loyal fan base like ours can put out deluxe, over-sized hardcover collections on par with much bigger publishers with much more resources.The ComixTribe Hardcover Collection is something that makes us stand out at conventions.And while we give out a ton of digital comics and digital is awesome, I truly believe that it's when fans get their hands on the best of what we have to offer, in print, in hardcover format, that they truly appreciate what ComixTribe is all about.(Maybe I'm just old school like that.)Unfortunately, we can only get to so many conventions, and retailers are notoriously conservative when it comes…

From the official Pro Se Press release . . . . . .

Author John Achor’s popular Arkansas based amateur detective is back!  FIVE-SIX, DEADLY MIX, the third Casey Fremont mystery, is now available in print and digital format from Pro Se Productions.

Casey Fremont has a knack for solving mysteries… She also has a habit of ending up in danger…and this time both may get her killed!

In FIVE-SIX, DEADLY MIX, Casey Fremont lands in the middle of a combined local police/FBI investigation into fraud and theft at a local hospital. Also, Two women have suspiciously fallen to their deaths before Casey reports for work in her undercover role. Once again, Casey brings her roommates, Effie Tremayne and Aaron Kincaid, along to lend a hand.

As usual, the rest of Casey’s life is in turmoil as well. Love interests shift and change, someone close to Casey falls ill, and she receives a visit from an uncle she’s not seen in years. This all forces Casey to make decisions that affect her while she edges ever close…

ComixTribe offers up THE RED TEN

EDITOR’S NOTE:  More updates from Tyler James, ComixTribe publisher.  The process of creating and publishing indie comics can experience several delays when you’re not able to devote full time to the process, and have to rely on a day job for your income. Some insights from James below . . . . . . . .I love talking about new projects, as I've been doing this week. TheCHUM trade collection is gorgeous andSINK is going to break recordsfor us later this year...But a lot of you have one question in mind...What About THE RED TEN?Many readers very first experience with ComixTribe came from picking up a little book called THE RED TEN, which is a superhero murder mystery in ten parts. At cons, I pitch it as "How I Would Kill Off The Justice League if DC was CRAZY Enough to Let Me."(They still are not.)If you haven't read THE RED TEN, and that concept sounds at all intriguing, here's a FREE Download of THE RED TEN #1 to check it out.Click here to Download THE RED TEN #1 F…
