The Living Hunger, the title of my second book is more than just a blog. It's an urge that drives readers and writers to investigate, create and consume. Explore the possibilities with me, as I share my works and others in our quest to satisfy that 'Hunger'.

eReaderRecon.com is pleased to welcome Author H.M. Jones to our team. She is the author of Monochrome, a dark journey through an incredible alter universe with Abigail and Ishmael. I recently read this novel and gave it a 5 star review:
"I have two copies of this wonderful book: the first
was given to me in exchange for a fair and honest review, the second I paid for
seconds after finishing the first.I
believe exceptional literature should be appreciated and paid for.Ms. Jones has written a dark, Alice in
Wonderland styled story that will touch your heart with the characters plight
and perhaps, if you're like me, have you start your own journey of
introspection.Once I began this unique
exploration I could not stop, reading the book in only a couple of
sittings.I believe any reader would
find it difficult to do otherwise.
The main characters, Abigail and Ishmael, were
very well developed, making me feel as if I'd known them for years, and I
probably have in the cluster of people I associate with.I loved the way they were flawed with real
problems but different points of view.The challenge, a woman's battle with depression following the birth of a
child, is written by an author who obviously knows what she is talking about,
however, I will not speculate if she is speaking from personal experience or
not, but there is truth to her words.This reader found himself thinking about the story and the pair's trials
well after putting the novel aside.
The place, Monochrome, is so one-of-a-kind that
any description I might give it will pale by comparison.Suffice it to say that the descriptive
writing is done, as if by a veteran novelist and not the debut workings of a
self-published author.The Traders,
Nightmares and other characters Abigail and Ishmael meet along their way, add
depth to an already deep story and made it one that I will likely read again,
for me, a rarity.
Who should read this?It's certainly too much for children, but
young adults, adults and anyone who loves a well-written story with a blend of
fantasy should read this novel.As other
reviewers have suggested, if you have ever been touched by depression or just
need a bit of soul searching yourself, this is a literary adventure that is
calling your name."
