I am finding it a little difficult. Right now I am going through IngramSparks for expanded distribution but still using CS and Amazon for digital.

I love history books and mystery books the most. Anything to do with music history gets me going. Can anyone recommend anyone I should check out or books I should check out?

I got it!

Posted by jlthompson5 Mar 31, 2014

Sometimes I truly wonder if I do have what it takes. I haven't published anything worthy of being anything other than self-published and just because I have been writing for as long as I can remember doesn't mean I have can be published. So what makes me different? Well that's a great question, I believe in my stories are something different. I feel like i but out a whole new playing field. I always had a hard time finding something to sink my head into as a kid and today I still struggle to stay in it all the way to the end. So I keep the difficult readers in mind, I strive to keep your hardcore attention the whole way through. I send out a few Query's to see what I can get back in response! Wish my luck and Thanks for following!!!!igotwhatittakes.jpg

Inspire me!

Posted by jlthompson5 Mar 26, 2014

So what inspires you to write? I find I love music as much as I love writing, so I blend them. I find from time to time i have to stop and belt out a few lines of the songs from time to time and it helps me keep a clearer mind and fresh eyes. I always make sure that going into one of the important events in the story I belt out a few lines of my favorite inspirational songs. I even keep a play list for everything I write. I often wonder if anyone has ever given a recommended listening list with their work before? And would it help the reader be pulled in more feeling the emotion of the music like it does for me, or if it would be too distracting. I am all for reading but I need a little background noise too of I feel like I'm dead. However when you have kids that is only because silence means they are getting in trouble. So here is a video of one of many songs that inspire me to write my loving heart out!

Creations by Renee

Posted by Creations Mar 15, 2014

I am a new writer and currently have two books available, "The Power of Thank You", and "The Power of Words". I am hopeful very soon to have the first of a children's series out as well, "The Creator and His Creations". I am in need of advice on some low cost ideas for marketing, and building a website. I have used weebly in the past and was satisfied, yet I was wondering if any one else had another suggestion. I would appreciate any input.

By Christopher T. Hamel


     He didn?t mean to do it . . . Yet the shock in his victim?s eyes told David Hockey differently.

     ?Oh my god . . .? He whispered. And then tickling the sides of his face were the quickly morphing tears of coming madness.

     ?Ma??The sound of his non-emotional voice is what sickened him, not the ****-wretched smell of his mother. However he felt himself changing; he didn?t know it, but he felt evil personified. ?Mommy!? He said, trying to get more emotion into it, but all the word ?mommy? did was evaporate into the air, and hang there just before the whisper from David?s lips said: ?I killed my mother,? made the word disappear completely.

     David walked over to his dear mommy, staring at the freshly sharpened steak knife sticking out of his mother?s throat. Blood tried to leak freely from where the wound would be if the knife were to be removed. Blood had navigated it's way down to her white blouse, seeping through and revealing her black sports bra, which to David now looked purple.

     Dave just stood there, shadow over his mother?s body. He stared at the knife and then at her eyes, and that?s when he closed his own in terror. They stung. He closed his mother?s dead, terrified, and shocked eyes. They still seemed to have soul. God had not taken her spirit; not without getting David getting to feel at least some guilt.

     Though David?s tears felt hot, along with this pounding remorse was the feel of a great and powerful?dark?high.

I killed my mother, David thought, enchanted by the words dancing through his mind. ?I killed Mommy,? he said aloud. ?And I?m only ten.?

Click.The sound of the door being unlocked, opened, and then noises of people. His sister saying something, and what? Her boyfriend too? Yeah, it was Greg?laughing at something she was saying to him; probably a corny half-assed joke?Beth wasn?t that funny, at least Dave didn?t think so; she was annoying.

     At first Dave froze in fear, but then a crazy idea occurred to him. Killing his mother, though horrible, gave him the thrill of his life.

Wonderful wasn?t it? His own voice, yet somehow darker, seemed to speak to him from the front of his mind. Dave?s eyes then filled with insanity; he could hear the shallowness of his breath, the rapid beating of his heart.

     ?Mom?? Beth called, as Dave heard her heading toward the kitchen.

     ?She?s in here sissy.? Dave said, surprised by the steadiness in his voice. Dave then ran over to his mother, and quickly grabbed the knife out from the inside of her throat. Blood sprayed upward a little, like a quick leak from a fire hydrant.

     ?Oh my god, Mom!? Beth screamed as her own tears started to flow. And as she started to run toward the corpse of her murdered mother, she didn?t seem to notice that David still had a blood drenched knife held tightly in his right hand. Dave didn?t let her either, because with it he charged at Beth?s boyfriend, and killed him?thrusting the freshly blood-painted knife into Gregory?s abdomen.

Greg seemed to gulp the air, as little David took the knife out of his stomach. Darn it, David reflected, as Greg?s blood seemed to spill a little on David?s shirt. Greg fell to his knees and stared in disbelief at David?s wild enraged eyes; for a moment Greg thought he saw full black in his gaze instead of that adorable little brown.

     ?David!? Beth cried, and when her darling little brother turned around, she did not see him. She saw the spawn of Satan.

     Smiling, Dave started laughing his full head off and ran toward his sister.

     Beth booked it, and Dave pounced but missed, by just a few hairs.

     Suddenly whatever insanity had overwhelmed Dave completed its possession. Windows then locked on their own, so did the doors. Everything sweet about David Hockey was also locked.

     ?All because I had top go in the corner!? David yelled. His voice was not just the cute high-pitched voice of a child, but deep and gurgling like that of a monster. It seemed a sinister, baleful creature was speaking behind him as David spoke.

     ?Beaaaaathhhhhhyyyyy?? David said in his most playful tone, which would make just about anyone shudder. David laughed, ?Aw, you?re such a good sissy, you never play hide ?n seek wit me.?

     Dave was walking toward the door. Slow. Smiling wide enough to make his jaws creak.

     It took a while?he was having fun. However soon, David stopped, his arms swung loosely in front of him, as if they were broken. He cocked his head like a dog; you could hear his neck crack as he did so.

     ?Found you.? David whispered and ran with arms swaying from side to side. He then ran, laughing toward the brown leather easy chair, and that?s when the door banged open.

     ?Freeze!? A young policeman said. Behind him was a slightly older one. Both looked shocked, but David knew that she had called them. David stopped all right, murmured something in what sounded like Latin, and then just dropped.

     The younger cop ran toward the boy and to his surprise yet sickened relief that was held inside his stomach . . . ?He?s dead.?


     In Autopsy, Dr. Stanley was stumped with this boy. Not only had he died of a heart failure and had virtually no physical problems, but also from the questions the authorities asked Elizabeth Hockey regarding if her baby brother showed any signs of being?well psychotic, she actually made the kid sound like a little ******* angel.

     The police had also found a ouji board in David Hocky's room, and though one officer found this to be suspicious, it was immediately dismissed.

Suddenly Stanley heard the automatic door swish open, but saw no one coming through. The air felt suddenly chilled as the doctor realized the door just opened on it?s own.

     Strange, Dr. Stanley reflected as he felt a jolt of adrenaline and anger coursed through him. He went back to the body and picked up one of his instruments: a large blade. Suddenly the deceased David Hockey opened his eyes, blackness started to rise out of the boy?s pours, and then for a split second . . . and the doctor's eyes turned black with insanity.
