A New Concept For Writers

Electric Eclectic Books

We are a brand of books, rather than a publisher. What makes us different is that the author claims all royalities, and has full control of their own book. It was originally just novellas, created for readers to find new authors without having to purchase a full book. While this is still true, there are other things that Electric Electic Books now do.

  • Back Stories – are excellent ways to explore and individual (or several) characters life (or lives) in more depth, even from childhood or birth, delving into their lives to find what experiences moulded their temperament and persoanlity. What traumas or conquests brough them to this point in their lives?
  • Parallels give authors the prospect of exploring untold events from their books; these parallels are like a sidebar, allowing incidents not fully incvestigated in other volumes, now to be discovered by their readers.
  • A Prequel is, of course, telling the tale of what happened before the series started, the worlds, the events, the people, their endevours and conflicts, the formation and destruction of agreements, syndicates, cartels and collborations… there is no end of possibilty.
  • Longer books are now accepted, too.

Combined with our Novelletes, Electric Eclectic is proving to be the thinking authors marketing.

Who does not want to use a method of marketing which pays the authors to promote their own books?

Could your writing fill that criteria? We are looking for authors to join us and enjoy the many benefits we offer.

Karen’s Book Buzz Review

There were ten stories/poems in this book, so it is good value.

The first story by Claire Plaisted, was very short and introduced the couple on the front cover. It was a nice touch to start the book off.

A poem Ode to Love by M J Mallon followed and I already liked the design around the titles. It gives the book a classy feel.

I must say the first story I came to was none other than yours truely here.  A Good Son. It was nice to be at the front. I took from The Adventures of Cassidy Newbold and feel it worked well as a standalone. If you would like to read the rest of the stories, you can do so on Wattpad.

A Highland Haunting by Dan Mcteer was a mini novella and the story of Atamveer Singh and his sister. A christian name that didn’t run easily of the tongue. I’m not too sure of the time this was set in, although it suggested present day except the way characters spoke to each other didn’t fit with that time. It took a while to get to the point of the story, and when it did and it introduced the ghost is was well done, with a good ending.

Dream Threads by C. A. Keith had a really good introduction to the author, and who she was. I liked that, it gave me a better feel for the story.  It began in the first person narrative and it wasn’t until some way in when the husband called her Theresa, I realised it wasn’t Charlottle telling the story. Once I had sorted that out it was a clever little tale and easier to read in modern English. I wouldn’t have liked to have read it at night because it did get quite creepy at times.

Rew y Calon – Frost of the Heart by Michael Lynes followed. I’m afraid I couldn’t get into this story and found it difficult to understand. I think possibly the Rhianae it was referring to was a tree.

Reunited at Last by C. L. Williams A clever story, and if you thought about it too much it would be terrifying. A great idea by the author. When the main character Wendy goes to sleep, strange things happen. It will make you think twice about sleeping!

Winged Secrets by Mara Reitsma A great thought out story and one that kept me gripped wanting to find out who they were and what really happened that fateful night. Little bit different as it started as case notes of a patient in a mental institution. My favourite story so far.

Pride and Witerchery by Cathy-Lee Chopping. It turned out that this was my favourite story in the book, after all. Very clever as we went back to the world of Jane Austin and Pride and Prejudice just because our main character was reading the book. She got taken back there by a witch. So it switched between modern day and olden days. There is a great scene at the airport where she and her boyfriend are supposed to be flying on holiday, except the boyfriend prefers to take his new girlfriend instead.

Ed’s Shadow, Poetry by M. J. Mallon. Loved this little story in a poem, a great way to finish.

All in all a good little read, especially as it is free to download. I hope you take advantage of it.

I bloged about this book here and included all the teasers to the stories. Worth taking a look.

Meanwhile, one more came in, so I couldn’t resist including it here.

I was at Pedro’s house and we were making out on the sofa. My head was back, my neck stretched in pleasure, my eyes flicked open and there was his mother looking through the window.

Karen’s Book Buzz Review

When I found out this author had written some crime shorts, I knew they would be good as I’d previously read some of her short stories. Jane Risdon has a magic pen. She knows how to write a tale that will intrigue and lure you in.

Seven ‘long’ short that were cleverly inspired by crime and murder.

Sweet Sable: The Red Siren is the first story and set in the thirties, it immediately created an atmaosphere of a times gone by. This crime noir tale was good start to the book.

Apartment 206c, couldn’t have been more different as it brings us bang up to date. We’ve all overheard people talking through walls, and China, the main character, hears her neighbours arguing. A fast past, heart thumping story with a twist.

Murder by Christmas – this was very clever. It’s started with the reading of a will, and certain people have to do certain things before they get their money. Very clever story.

The Watchers was a sad crime I felt. Two people who didn’t quite connect up again as we find out all it not what it seems.

The Honey Trap, and we have all heard of them and this one plays out as we meet the assassin.

The Look is similar to the previous one, and another cleverly written story. Although they were both good, I liked this one better because I love a strong female character.

The seventh story is called Undercover and is an extract from the author’s forthcoming book. I didn’t read this one, so you will have to make up your own mind about it.

I enjoy Jane Risdon’s writing and read her book Only One Women, which I absolutely loved. It takes the reader back to the rock n roll sixties. You can read my review here.

Jane also wrote a short story which I featured on the Magic of Stories site called Summer of Love, and is well worth a read.
