Interview and Giveaway with H.L. Cherryholmes


Now available to purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble is the paranormal novel The Reminisce by H.L. Cherryholmes.



The author has taken a few minutes out of his busy schedule for a Q&A about his new novel.



When did you become interested in storytelling?

As a young boy I was taken care of by my paternal grandmother and she would tell me about her past. She never just remembered. She would turn whatever it was she was telling me about into a story. Not having much of a past of my own, I began to make up stories to tell her and she would ask questions to help me fill in the blanks. That’s when I discovered how fun and fulfilling it was to be a storyteller.

What was your first book/story published?

Because I started out as a playwright, my first story published was actually a play called, And Jill Came Tumbling After.

What inspired you to write The Reminisce?

Talking to a doctor once at a party. She specialized in Alzheimer’s and we had a very interesting chat about accessing memories. I became fascinated with the (simplistic, because there’s so much more to it) idea that the disease moves backwards, taking away the most current memories until there’s nothing left to recall.

What character in The Reminisce is the most/least like you, and in what ways?

That would have to be Araceli, the girlfriend of the main character’s sister. She curious and is always willing to explore the unusual, even if she doesn’t quite understand or believe in it.

What is your favorite part in The Reminisce?

Interview with Joe M. Solomon


Being publishled on October 3rd from NES Publishing, LLC is the supernatural-horror novel The Darkness: Giger, Texas by Joe M. Solomon. The book can be preorderd on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes.


The author has taken a few minutes out of his busy schedule for a Q&A about his new novel. 



When did you become interested in storytelling?

When I was five or six and used to buy comic books, I never read the books. I would pick and choose images from the comics, cut them out, and create my own story. I actually didn’t come to know the story of Batman until I saw the movie Batman that starred Michael Keaton.

What was your first book/story published?

The Darkness: Giger, Texas is my first published book.

What inspired you to write The Darkness: Giger, Texas?

One night when I was about to go to bed, I turned off the lights in the den and headed for the bedroom. Once there, I realized I had left something behind. So I went back to the den and turned on the lights. Something black—like a shadow—swept by in front of my face, startling me. I assumed it was just one of those weird visual things that can happen when you abruptly shift from shadows to bright light. But the notion of the darkness coming to life when we go to bed popped into my head and wouldn’t leave.

Coerced into signing an ironclad contract by an Angel-with-attitude, Alexis must hunt down and assassinate at least one vampire, werewolf, or creepy crawly every night for fifty years to become human again. Too bad the contract didn’t mention the badass vampire who now rides shotgun in her brain, insatiable bloodlust, or her new I-hate-everything-with-fangs sidekick. If she can fulfill her end of the bargain, her humanity is restored, if not she will be destroyed.

But when a revenge-seeking bloodsucker threatens her city, Alexis must risk everything to ensure there’s a humanity to return to. Since her vampire nature is her greatest weapon to defeat the monsters that threaten her friends and future, Alexis must choose to accept her inner beast or watch those she loves die.

Blood and Orgasms – An Alexis Black Short Story

I needed blood and an orgasm.  Not necessarily in that order.  At least that’s what Nathan’s been telling me for weeks.  I guess even best friends can’t stand a moody bitch.
Good thing I’m a girl who likes to multi-task.
I allowed Nathan to tart me up in a black dress so low-cut, one wrong move would expose my not-very-abundant assets. We headed to a local human hot spot, and walked past a line of scantily clad woman and wanna-be Rico SauvĂ©’s.
Once inside, he sat me down at the bar and pointed his finger in my face.  “Alexis Black, you’re not getting off that stool until some unlucky sod agrees to take you home and shag you senseless.”
Sheesh.  “It’s not going to take all night.  We’ll be out of here before you know it.”  I waved him off. 
“Well, aim high, don’t hop on the first one that comes your way.”   He rubbed my shoulders. “Relax.  You’ll scare away all the good ones.”  He gave me a peck on my cheek and wandered off in search of his own pulsing vein.
Ten minutes.  Thirty minutes.  Fifty minutes.  Not one man approached me.  I pulled a compact out of my purse and checked my reflection. No food in my teeth. No objects in my nose.  No fangs.
My stomach rumbled at the smell of the blood pumping through the humans on the dance floor. So enticing I had to grab the bottom of my stool to keep from snatching someone for a quick bite.  Next time I shouldn’t wait to long to feed, but I liked drinking blood as much as I liked sitting in this club.
