**THE BIGGEST GIVEAWAY YET!** Here it is! It's no secret that authors need reviews (as well as likes). I have a goal of obtaining 200 reviews in 2 weeks in preparation for my pitch to a few big wig publishers! YIKES! I believe that we can do it! If you help me reach my goal, I'll give away a KINDLE from Best buy! If we fall short of 200, I'll still giveaway a $50.00 giftcard (to your choice Best buy or Amazon) The winner can also elect to get the gift card instead of the KINDLE (in case you already have one).

Drawing will be on Feb. 1st (I will quit sending out PDF's on the 17th but you can still "pay to play" by buying the kindle, nook, paperback and submit a review by the 1st)

Here are the rules!
Email me at to obtain a PDF file of Manipulating the List (or you're welcome to buy it to support me - or Once you've completed reading it - go to AND (must go to both!) and leave an honest review! Once you've left your reviews send me a new email that says 1) your name 2) your reviewer name on the sites. Then keep an eye on to make sure the NOTE (KINDLE GIVEAWAY) has your information to show that you have entered! Winner will be emailed as well. Thanks and Good Luck!

I dare you to read this:

Award-Winning Saga Has It All: Riveting Action And A Free 3D Comic App With Music By Celldweller


The Bane of Yoto, by Joshua Viola, is a trans-media experience that offers many ways to explore its rich storyline. From paperback or eBook to a free 3D interactive comic mobile app, this attention-grabbing novel was recently released by independent record label and music publisher FiXT – and promises to transport readers to a sinister world of cosmic drama and action they will never forget!


Formerly a professor of Game Art and Design, and now Art Director for Leviathan Games, Viola’s astounding vision is unmistakable in this perfect blend of science fiction and fantasy that comes together in a breakneck paced, action-packed plot where creatively original characters battle for their very existence in a brutal world.


Drawing rave reviews for its originality and vision, The Bane of Yoto has won awards from both the 2012 New York Book Festival and the 2012 Hollywood Book Festival, and is the first installment in a trilogy of science-fantasy novels by Joshua Viola.  


…Some say the Arbitrators existed long before the world was born. Others believe their dark powers spun the fabric of time itself. They are mystery. But this is truth. After ages of formless existence, the Arbitrators craved physicality once more and in their search for a worthy body to inhabit, they destroyed Ajyin – home to the gentle, blue-fleshed Numah and the combative, carapaced Olokun. But not all was lost. General Vega and his vile warriors enslaved the remaining Numah and they relocated to Ajyin’s thriving moon, Neos.

Under the general’s imperious rule, the Numah toiled to extract minerals for a defensive barrier called the Aegis Shield that the general vowed would protect Neos from the Arbitrator’s return. But the Arbitrators’ hunger sparked a great fire – a blaze of revenge and revolution that soon found its home in the heart of a weak and cowardly Numah named Yoto, transforming him into a powerful and dangerous being beyond the general’s control. Will Yoto use his new-found power to free his people – or will he annihilate them? Once again, the Arbitrators’ dark presence haunts the world of Numah and Olokun.


Always looking to break new ground, FiXT (owned by cyber-rocker Klayton of Celldweller), recently entered the book publishing business with The Bane of Yoto. Staying with the book’s theme, Viola has merchandise available ranging from PlayStation 3 Dynamic Themes, Sculptures and T-shirts, to posters and more, that are available through FiXT.

Comment by John Emil Augustine on August 17, 2012 at 7:15pm

The realest romance you will read this fall!

"This rare and honest first-person account looks at 21st century romance, marriage with children, and divorce from a regular guy’s perspective. The colorful and addictive narrative delves deep into spousal abuse, the hopeless place in which a father finds himself during divorce, new beginnings, and his ordeal’s significance in retrospect. John Emil Augustine’s insight throughout, the result of his own tragedy and redemption, is nothing short of eloquence itself written in a very down-to-earth, casual way. This heart-jerking, wisdom-flecked story is a must read for lovers of fiction and non-fiction alike. John Emil Augustine has been a landscaper, musician, English professor, welder, forklift operator, and is the father of four boys. John writes and performs in his spare time. 'Love Seen from Hell' is his first novel."

Free this week!
