Smoking Ash by Jeremy K. Tyler

A Lester Calvin Mystery #1

Mystery 138pgs ebook

Lester Calvin isn’t your typical detective. He knows cigars, he knows Tampa, but mostly, he knows people who can help solve problems. As he likes to put it, he’s “a guy, who knows a guy.” But when a beautiful woman walks in and drops a load of cash into his lap for doing absolutely nothing, he lands into a world of trouble, that even his connections might not be able to get him out of. The stakes have never been higher, as Lester must discover who this woman is, and why so many people want to find her. And he needs to act fast, because he just became a target.

THE WAR GATE, A PARANORMAL/THRILLER, NOW $2.99 ON AMAZON . Full-length, 332 pages of thrills, romance and chills. Available on Amazon Kindle:

Tag Line: Through a miraculous conception, Avalon Labrador must give birth to herself before she is executed, to solve her husband’s murder and her own wrongful conviction.

When the reincarnated Avy Labrador is kicked out of her stepfather’s house on her 18th birthday, she has no idea that the man who raised her framed her mother to cover his murder so he could acquire a major software empire. Now, years later, with the help of her magician boyfriend, Sebastian, Avy is about to discover that her birth was otherworldly and for a purpose. The ancient Roman God Janus was so appalled by the heinous murder of Tom Labrador by his brother Drake that he opened up a War Gate. Avy has received half of her mother’s soul light and half of a God’s essence. Her mission is to put the real killer behind bars. The only catch: she must learn to “Gate-Walk”, that’s time traveling to the layman. She soon finds out that she is a drunk driver on the space/time continuum super highway.

“This was a solidly written tale with a trace of fantasy and complex thought used in defining the concept of leaping from one time gate to the next—excellent job of structuring.”

Terrie G, Bitten by Books, 4 out of 5.

“The War Gate is a captivating book. Mystery, magic and the paranormal blend together in a perfect mix. I would thoroughly recommend this book to fantasy enthusiasts who also like romance.

Orcid, Aurora Reviews, 5 out of 5.

War Gate Author's Note: The antagonist character, Wax Man, is not for the squeamish. I warn you ahead of time that he is the most disgusting, vile creature/human you're ever likely to read about. Not for younger readers under 13.

Comment by Edward Garbowski Jr on August 20, 2013 at 2:01pm

A Dog's Life was a great murder mystery. Edward Garbowski painted the image of a small, upstate town beautifully. I could really picture the town in my head as I read the story. The pages turned as I read the book in less than a week. It was well written and kept my interest. Looking forward to the next story of the unusual detective duo.”


“The initial reviews gave me the impetus to try this new author, and I have to say he must have had some experience in writing before this book because it is excellent! His character shines out as interesting from the very first page. He doesn't over share so his character and his background still have some interesting holes to fill in following books. I know I will be waiting for more!”

Find out what the praise is all about by following Franklin Cartwright on his journey to a small town in A Dog’s Life, the first in the FBC mystery series by Edward Garbowski, Jr.  Check out the book on Amazon (


In the meantime, check out this exclusive excerpt from my novel on my blog page: Exclusive excerpt
