Here is something of interest to writers.

Here is something of interest of writers. 
L.A.S.R. is a website that reviews books and I believe they have an end of year contest among their  entries. 

If anyone is interested in getting L.A.S.R. to review your novel, here are the instructions. 

Information taken directly off of the L.A.S.R. website:

How to Request a Review

Please Note:

We accept requests from both traditionally published authors, self-published authors and publishers.

IMPORTANT: Traditionally published authors, please check with your publisher FIRST to see if they already submit to us — if they do, please do NOT submit your story to us, as duplicate entries will cause significant problems.  FYI: We are auto-approved via NetGalley and Edelweiss for most Sourcebooks, Harlequin, Harper Collins and Avon books that are available through that distribution channel.

If you are self-published, or your publisher does not already submit to us, please follow the submission guidelines below.

* We do not guarantee all books received will be reviewed.  Please do not email us after submitting your story for review to find out if it’s been selected for review.  If it’s reviewed, you’ll be notified.
* We review Romance, Erotic Romance, Young Adult and Middle Grade and other Children’s Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Non-Romance Mysteries and Cozies, Thrillers, Horror, Fantasy, Science Fiction and other genre fiction as well as Non-Fiction.
* We reserve the right to decline to review books at our discretion.
* Please do not submit stories that include depraved or illegal acts, bestiality, degradation of men or women (rape) that is portrayed in a positive way (and never by the hero), incest, or pedophilia (no sex involving underage characters with an adult regardless of consent).


1. Please fill out the appropriate form for your genre (linked bel0w):

* All Other Genres (including non-erotic romance, YA/Middle Grade fiction, non-romance mystery, fantasy and science fiction)

2. After completing the form, please email the PDF for your story to lasrpdfs (@) gmail (.) com with a subject: TITLE – PUBLISHER PDF (i.e. Really Great Book – Awesome Publishing PDF). NOTE: the above email is for PDF submission ONLY. Please do not send ANY other correspondence. If you need to contact us for anything else, you may use lasreviews AT gmail DOT com

3. You will not receive confirmation of receipt. If your story is chosen for review, you will be notified by email when the review is published.

4. All review requests will be kept in our database for approximately three months. At that time, if no reviewer has been found for the story, the request will be removed from our database and the PDF deleted without issuance.

5. We are determined to be a site that only issues honest, but positive reviews. Therefore, if our reviewers cannot find positive remarks to say about a story, it will be declined. Please understand, this is not necessarily a reflection upon you, the author, or your story — opinions vary greatly. It just means that the reviewers who volunteer their time here at LASR didn’t care for it. We will notify you via email if this particular circumstance occurs. We appreciate your understanding!

A Character Quotes from 'Premeditated Pandemonium.'

Premeditated Pandemonium has an underlying theme about - who do you put your faith in? 
       Here are some quotes from the novel about that sxpansive topic:

“Faith is what makes the difference in a lover and a loved one.”

                         —   Janie Fulbright

         “A man makes his own destiny 
           and his faith should be in himself.”
                                   —    General Matthew L. Goldstein, Navel Military Intelligence

          “The lawyer has faith in the justice system 
            and the judge has faith in the law, 
            but the law is not faith. However, 
            the man who lives by the law lives 
            in confidence of its fairness - He lives by faith.”
                               —   Zane Dunkirk

                 And a word from a famous Author:

        “All the world is made up of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”

                        ― J.M. Barrie

A Passage from 'Premeditated Pandemonium.'

A passage from 'Premeditated Pandemonium' by Dan-Dwayne:

          Evan held the flight stick of the chopper steady as Zane leaped from the helicopter into the inky blackness that lay before him. Its tranquility surrounded him and enveloped him. It made him one with the night sky. On his cheeks, he felt splatters of moisture as he fell through a thin cloud and his mind drifted for a moment. *** This night he had to force his thoughts aside and concentrate on the mission at hand. At nine hundred and fifty feet, literally suspended between heaven and earth, it wasn’t the time for Zane to think of such things. On top of everything else, there was the bitter cold.

          It was the cold that brought his focus back to his mission, his purpose. He had a job to do, and although his cheeks felt frozen as he hurtled through the black air of night between the helicopter and the top of the newly completed AWIF Corporation skyscraper, the jewel of the Boston skyline, he would persevere.

          Holding tight to the ripcord of his parachute, he counted off the seconds before he opened it. It was only seconds but it felt like a perpetual eternity before he reached the precisely calculated distance when his parachute would not be noticed by the dual tower security team.

          He whispered the number ‘0’ and pulled hard on the ripcord. The nylon cloth shot out of the tight packing and popped loudly as it suddenly filled with air. Zane flailed briefly like a rag doll as his momentum temporarily reversed and he began his gentle descent to the top of the tallest tower.

          Landing with a roll, he stripped off the pack and tucked as much of the blowing fabric back into it as he could. Dressed in black fatigues, he pulled a ski mask over his face. Loose threads outlined where his rank and his Goldstein’s Guerrillas patch had once been attached to his shoulder.

           With little time to spare he pressed the release button on the miniaturized collapsible grappling hook. The titanium tines of the hook sprang out into a claw shape. He secured the rope to the hook and anchored it to the massive air-conditioning unit that cooled the tower.
