There's nothing that makes an author's day more than receiving a great review. Thank you to all readers who take the time to leave reviews.

You must read this delightful, magical book for all ages! ★★★★★ By Teresa Fronek on October 7, 2018

I’m extremely impressed with The Secrets of Hawthorne House, which was gifted to me. But unlike other books I’ve won or been given for an honest review, I genuinely loved this book! It begins quickly, draws you in, but never slows, so that once you finish one chapter, you’re on to the next. It’s the story of fifteen-year-old Matt Mitchell, who after losing his mother in a tragic accident and is forced to move far from his former home and life, finds a new life and a strong interest that begins next door. He’s intrigued by the “haunted” Hawthorne House next to his own, a house who’s inhabitant is said to be an old witch. Once he hears the true story of the mansion from his teacher, however, he’s compelled to meet the owner himself. What follows is his delightful relationship with the white haired Lady Hawthorne or Mrs. Carter (ex), and when her extended family comes to stay…with Gerallt. The rest is a mixture of magic and interesting experiences that allow him to get over his nightmares of his mother’s death and the sadness that had threatened to send him spiraling into a depression. I couldn’t wait to reach the end and find out the mysteries of the old house and its inhabitants! It’s such a delightful story and the first one I’ve read by this author, but if this is any indication of his other works or if he continues to write more great books, he has found a fan in me!

FREE Science Fiction and Horror Novel. Over fifty Amazon 5 star reviews.

https://www.amazon.com/Hell-Holes-What-Lurks-Below-ebook/dp/B012IUE14U/

It’s August in Alaska, and geology professor Jack Oswald prepares for the Fall semester. But when hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appear overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle, Jack receives an unexpected phone call. An oil company exec hires Jack to investigate, and he picks his climatologist wife and two of their graduate students as his team. Uncharacteristically, Jack also lets Aileen O’Shannon, a bewitchingly beautiful young photojournalist, talk him into coming along as their photographer. When they arrive in the remote oil town of Deadhorse, the exec and a wildlife expert hired to protect them from Arctic predators join the team. Their task: to assess the risk of more holes opening under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the wells and pipelines that feed it. But they discover that a far worse danger lurks below. When it emerges, it threatens to shatter Jack’s unshakable faith in science. And destroy us all…

I just reviewed a great three-book boxed set of science fiction books. I highly recommend it. Check it out at https://www.amazon.com/SciFi-Cyberpunk-Tales-Trilogy-Dystopian-ebook/dp/B01MVA6RZL/

One of the authors, Ashley Hunt, just gave me a wonderful character interview with Vivian Hsu (Red Viper), the kick-ass anti-heroine, which I will be including in the April 1st issue of Firesmith's Speculative Fiction Newsletter. You can subscribe to at: http://donaldfiresmith.com/subscribe/
Believe me, you won''t want to miss it.

Also, every month, I will be running a contest in which all subscribers are automatically entered. First prize is an autographed copy of Hell Holes 2: Demons on the Dalton.
