Meet Solitaire Parke

Rather than just one book, for this post I want you to meet Solitaire Parke. The cover and description for the novel Vengeance of the Wolf really drew me in. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but can't wait! Then I discover that he's posting one chapter at a time of another book (see the cover below). If you want to know if you're going to like someone's writing, this should give you ample opportunity! Am I using too many exclamations? I can't help it! I'm excited about this one. See for yourself:

Vengeance of the Wolf Description

“Vengeance of the Wolf” is a harrowing story of a man exacting revenge on those he has deemed responsible for the loss of his beloved wolf puppy, killed many years before at a Presidential parade. A fragile young boy was at that moment forever changed, and the maniacal vendetta of a psychotic killer was created. What follows is a killing spree so brilliantly carried out, that it seems nearly unstoppable. Detective, John Yardley, and FBI Agent, Frank Williams, are on a quest to stop this manipulative, unknown mass murderer, whose targets seem to be specific politicians, in a bizarre and insane killing spree…one that draws them into a world of dreams and nightmares beyond their wildest imaginations. Awaiting them are unbelievable terrors, chilling twists and turns and a scope of destruction that they would never have believed possible!

The Emerald Dragon Description

“The Emerald Dragon” is the story of Tanis, an ancient warrior called by an emerald dragon; the first to be born in over a thousand years. What follows is the day to day struggle Tanis faces while learning to be a dragon rider and live among the people of Mount Drago. It soon becomes evident that there’s more to his calling than just becoming a part of the Dragomeir legend. A war is brewing and only the dragon riders stand in the way of total annihilation.

Bum, bum, bum! J
I am featuring this one for free on my blog, one chapter at a time (as I’m writing it), every Friday. J 
(I love this idea! I wish my writing style would let me post one chapter at at time! Way to go Solitare!)

Solitaire Parke bio

I have been avidly reading books of all kinds, but especially Science Fiction books since I was twelve years old. It was the author, Edgar Rice Burroughs, that really inspired me to become a writer. His style of writing spoke to me and evoked a passion for the written word. Throughout my life I have acquired a degree in Music Theory, a Masters in Photography and spent a decade and a half in Graphic and Web Design, but my love of writing never let up. I am currently pursuing my dream of becoming a full-time Author. I have written books ranging from Horror/Thriller to Science Fiction as well as Metaphysical and Poetry. I am also the proud owner of Tairobi…my Manx cat. He’s been a huge help in the writing process!
