Strange Cars In The Night By Eric Keegan

About Eric Keegan:

Eric Keegan has been writing novels and screenplays since 2005 but only recently became an avid and enthusiastic reader. The two hundred books he has read in the past three years have helped him hone his own writing style. Eric likes to go against the grain when crafting his stories.

Eric currently works in manufacturing. When he isn’t working or writing, he seeks inspiration through his travels and in the great outdoors. He has never forgotten his Eagle Scout training and still finds nature a welcome respite from the stresses of daily life.

Amazon And Goodreads Summary:
Strange Cars in the Night is a savage debut poetry collection that moves at breakneck speed, written in the taste of a modern-day Hunter S. Thompson. It continues to unfurl Eric’s stream of conscious writing style onto the page and depicts an almost hallucinogenic recounting of what happens every night when the moon comes out to play.
My Thoughts:
I love reading poetry and this was one of those books with poetry that you just absolutely fall in love with. It’s written in a sort of stream of consciousness and it feels like you’re reading someones thoughts out loud. Instead of trying to prove a point or trying too hard these poems flow naturally.
Like I said in my last post I’m a really big fan of Keegan’s writing and I love his style. This book is probably my favourite book that I’ve read this year and I would definitely highly recommend checking it out!

The Dioramist By Eric Keegan (Book Review)

“Sometimes, when you take a rooted step out the front door, you feel like a song.”

About Eric Keegan:

Eric Keegan has been writing novels and screenplays since 2005 but only recently became an avid and enthusiastic reader. The two hundred books he has read in the past three years have helped him hone his own writing style. Eric likes to go against the grain when crafting his stories.

Eric currently works in manufacturing. When he isn’t working or writing, he seeks inspiration through his travels and in the great outdoors. He has never forgotten his Eagle Scout training and still finds nature a welcome respite from the stresses of daily life.

Amazon And Goodreads Summary:

The titular character in Eric Keegan’s The Dioramist is in the throes of a quarter-life crisis. He may only be in his midtwenties, but the dioramist finds himself lost and confused. He has spent so much of his time in an ill-defined relationship that he doesn’t understand himself apart from his partner.

When a friend suggests that he begin writing down his inner thoughts, hopes, and dreams, our hero sets off on an adventure that shows him a new passion in life. Writing becomes fundamental to his identity, but he isn’t sure if he has the courage to share his thoughts with the world.

At the same time, he struggles with his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Elizian. The two have been in a holding pattern for so long that neither is sure they’re ready to make the next step. As the writer gains enlightenment about his own life, Elizian will be inspired to seek out the same.

This intimate, personal look at one man’s journey shows the many different routes recovery can take and reminds you that it’s never too late to fall in love with something new.

My Thoughts: 

I loved reading this book. I’m just going to get right into it and say this was one of my favourite books I’ve read recently. I love Keegan’s flow and the way his books are so free and like a stream of consciousness.

It was also quite relatable because being in your twenties is so super confusing and scary but it’s also where you find yourself and realise what you really want in life.

I would definitely highly recommend checking it out!

About The Author

Prometheus Silver grew up in the beautiful Hudson Valley outside of New York. He left his home when he joined the United States Army. He now lives in Missouri with his four daughters and wife to be. He spends most of his days writing and having fun with his family.
My Thoughts
First of all I liked that it was not too long because I’m super busy very often but I still want to read but if the book is too long I kind of keep putting it off.  The genre is fantasy and the plot, characters and writing is all really great!
I also really enjoyed the plot of the book and I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll keep it short and simple. The plot is really fun and exciting and moves really fast which I love.
I also really liked the characters- they were fun, unique and a bit crazy (in a good way). I liked The Rat character because it was colorful and exciting and rebellious.
The story was definitely exciting and keeps you wanting to read more. It definitely is super well written and the descriptions were also really imaginative and fun to read.
If like me you want to read but not something that’s too long this is absolutely perfect for you. Especially if you’re a fan of the fantasy genre.

Life Story

Erin was born in Kansas City, Missouri and later moved to the small town of El Dorado Springs (That’s El
Do-RAY-Do), Missouri where she spent most of her life.
In 2007 she moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia and graduated from Germanna Community College with honors. If that wasn’t enough… she decided to enroll in courses at Mary Washington University and earned a Bachelor’s in English, Linguistics, and Communications in 2015.

Writing

From there, she published her first novel “Synchronicity” and only lost a small portion of hair from stress.
In 2017, she published the sequel, “Menoetius”, and in 2018 she became fed up with a teeny-tiny copyright incident and collaborated with other authors from the writing community to compile a multi-
genre anthology entitled “Cocky-Tales”. She is currently working on “Forbidden” to be published this winter.

Erin’s writing has placed in a variety of competitions including second place in the Sudden Denouement
Divergent Literature Competition and the CN International Flash Fiction Competition, and most recently,
her piece “The Final Battle” placed first in her heat in round one of the 2018 NYC Midnight Short Story
Competition.

In 2017, Erin was invited to sit on not only the Horror/Sci-Fi/Fantasy writer’s panel at the Fredericksburg
Independent Book Festival, she also sat on the YA panel. In February 2018, she joined the judging panel
for the CN International Pens of Roses Flash Fiction Competition and in March, joined another author
panel in Richmond, Virginia.

Erin works as an editor at FunDead Publications and offers free-lance editing on the side.

Film/TV

Think you’ve seen Erin on TV? You betcha!
Erin got her start as a contestant on Netflix’;s hot new baking show, “NailedIt!”. Following that experience,
she can be found on a variety of Investigate Discovery shows including “Unmasked” and “Dead of Night”.
Erin’s also worked on a couple of independent films due out next year.

When She Walked Away

As a survivor of domestic violence, Erin strives to give back to the community that offered her the support
and encouragement to not only leave her situation but to find her voice. This is what led to the founding of When She Walked Away. A small, but steadily growing community that places direct emphasis on
providing encouragement, information, and support to women and children who have experienced or are
experiencing domestic violence.

Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!

Happy Birthday to one of my favourite writers!

Kathy Cherry Books

Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775 in England.  She authored six books and these books continue to be revered today. Her books include Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park.

Jane’s father encouraged her writing back then and even bought her expensive paper and pencils even when the family needed the extra money. She used her father’s library frequently by reading lots of books.

I distinctly remember reading Pride and Prejudice many, many years ago. I loved that book! I dreamt about meeting my own Mr. Darcy some day. But, I also remember Jane’s great sense of wit and wisdom in her writing throughout her novels.

Enjoy a few quotes from Jane Austen’s works:

“It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
Sense and Sensibility

“I declare after all…
