James Franco Reads The Dead Zone and the Planets Align

The Dead Zone is a classic Stephen King, published in 1979, now available in audiobook and read by James Franco. The Dead Zone isn’t my favorite Stephen King, but that’s like comparing chocolate ice cream. With the narration by James Franco, they did a major push to get this one out there and “reread” by the masses. There is always a difference in reading and hearing it on audiobook, I think of audiobooks as performances – like a play of a book. And it’s even better when I’ve read the book, and now get to hear it on audiobook. Like an encore. This was an all-star encore!

Dead Spots by Rhiannon Frater

PJV Quickie: There is one thing you can not deny about Rhiannon Frater’s novels – they are very unique. As a fan of the author I was excited to read DEAD SPOTS and the story did not disappoint.

Review: The story opens with an idyllic family life, new couple, new baby on the way…everyone is happy, sparkly and in love. It takes a few pages for that to come crashing down. It wouldn’t be a Frater novel if everyone wasn’t all emotionally fracked...

After The End by Bonnie Dee

PJV Quickie: AFTER THE END by Bonnie Dee was your typical zombie novel. Bonnie Dee delivered an action-packed zombie apocalypse that kept me on my toes, but didn’t wow me as far as originality.

The survivors are located in New York City, which you seem to see a lot of with zombie novels. These particular survivors are riding the same subway train and they band together for survival....

Crane by Stacey Rourke #Review

PJV Quickie:  CRANE offers both a fresh twist to the Sleepy Hollow tale and a refurbished version.  For those unfamiliar with the tale of Ichabod Crane, then this would be the perfect book to read.  For those who are already fans of the headless horseman, you might find yourself wishing Ichabod Crane lost his head faster.  The star of this book is truly Ireland Crane. Review:  CRANE is written through two narratives.  One is set in the familiar Sleepy Hollow time period with Ichabod Crane and the other is modern day Sleepy Hollow with Ireland Crane. The ‘historical’ time...

Braineater Jones by Stephen Kozeniewskiy #Review

PJV Quickie:  As a huge fan of fancy vampires, I have to admit that zombies aren’t my cup of tea. I was a bit skeptical about “Braineater Jones”, but this story completely changed my thoughts. Even zombies can be cool. I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review.
