New Review For "The Bridge" On Amazon...

Fantastic!, February 28, 2013 By  Reiser This review is from: The Bridge (Para-Earth Series) (Kindle Edition) The Bridge was a fantastic story that completely sucked me in. The characters were great, with witty banter that had me cracking up. You will not be able to put this down! This story takes a charming English psychic into a dark, mysterious, and evil world.

Twists and turns will have you thinking, "did that really just happen?"

Wonderful story reminiscent of my Dean Koontz days. I will be watching for more from this author.

"Just then the human wall, known as Casey stepped in front of him and gesteured to a table, 'The ladies are waiting for you.'
'So is St. Peter,' Alex muttered turning and heading towards what he hoped would not be a last meal."

This book was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review.

Another 5 STAR Review for "THE BRIDGE"

I'm so excited to share this review with you all: Review by: Danielle Silva on Feb. 24, 2013 : 
I absolutely loved, loved, loved The Bridge!!! I do have to say
that there are a few spelling and grammatical errors, and a few places where the sentence structure could use a little bit more editing/proofreading. However, this was not bad enough to cause any problems with reading through those areas.

With that said, I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the plot! The story was absolutely amazing! It has a
wonderfully amazing supernatural element and I really loved the way the author portrayed Native American Shamans. The mystery was so intense and suspenseful ... I had a hard time putting the book down for any reason. The plot is full of twists and turns that kept me guessing and the ending was absolutely amazing with a twist that I did not expect! I really hope that the author, Allan Krummenacker, will write a sequel to this book! Either way, I look forward to reading more fro…

The Importance of Editing....

The last 7 days have kept me busy.  I mean REALLY busy.  And the sad thing about it all is that some of this could have been avoided....up to a point.  Now I'm talking about re-editing my first novel AFTER it had already come out.  Why would I do that?  Because in spite of the combined efforts of myself and 2-3 other people checking the novel over for grammatical errors, a number of them got past all of us.  From day one, I was determined to try and put out as good a product as I possibly could.  And when I found out I'd failed, I felt obligated to go back and fix things.

Now, I'm sure a number of you are wondering to yourselves, "Is he saying he never got it professionally edited?"  The answer is, "I did not."  Now, this is not because I was so arrogant in my own writing abilities, nor was it because I was being cheap and didn't want to put the money out.  The truth is... my wife and I have applied for Food Stamps and have been getting aid from my …

Signed 1st Edition Copies of "THE BRIDGE"

Okay folks I have 25 first edition prints of my novel "The Bridge". I just finished creating a 2nd edition. What's the difference between 1st and 2nd? There were errors that got past me and my helpers in the 1st edition. This is the same version that had earned me 4 and 5 star reviews. (it would have been more 5 star ones if it hadn't been for the errors, people even said so in their reviews). I found out about the errors after I placed the order. So there are only 25 of them in existence and they were the first ones ever printed, which is why I'm referring to them as 1st edition.

I tried to correct as many of the errors as possible for the 2nd edition. Anyone interested in the 1st edition copies, let me know. I will personalize them as well as sign them for those who wish it. The price will be $15.00 plus $3.00 shipping.

I Have A Guest For You All... Meet Nicole Field

I have a special treat for you all today.  I have a guest blogger today.  I've been wanting to do this for some time.  I know you're familiar with some of MY views and ideas, but I wanted to give you some points of view on writing from other authors.  So please help me welcome the author of the novel "Gothic" Nicole Field!
Hey all! I'm Nicole, I'm from Melbourne, Australia, and at the moment, I'm busily writing a paranormal romance / urban fantasy series starting with the title Gothic.

Allan has kindly invited me here today to talk about my thoughts on plot and character creation. Lucky for me, I have many ideas on both of those things! 
Many years ago, a tiny nugget of a plot appeared to me in a dream. I remember seeing a vampire standing at the door to a house that he hadn't been invited into and couldn't get in. In the doorway, there was a strong, young woman standing in defence of the person inside the house who was refusing to see the vampire a…
