More About the Author

Samuel L. Lytle developed a love for writing at a young age and attributes it to filling many personal journals with his own life stories. He always knew that he wanted to write a book, but when he actually sat down and did it, he was astonished as the story practically fell out of his fingers into a rough draft in less than two months. He presents Gold Stars as his first novel and promises that it will entertain while providing a 100 percent unique and original storyline.

He lives in his home state of Nevada with his wife, son and daughter and, among other projects, is working towards a career as a civil engineer.

Gold stars has several original characters that fill the pages of this book. The author does a phenomenal job of weaving, the several different stories, together. I was very surprised this book was the authors first. He writes like a veteran, and is able to command the story, moving it forward when the story needs to change and holding the story back to keep us guessing. I had several different thoughts about how this story was going to end, and each time I was wrong. The book is a great read at a remarkable price.
I took a chance on this book, not knowing what it would be about, and being the authors first, but I can honestly tell you that the message behind the story and the thoughts I have entertained since putting it down have been well worth it.

You can't beat the price, and more so, you can't help but falling in love with the story. Buy this book.

This book was an easy read yet very thougt provoking. I keep thinking about it even days later and questioning the type of person I am; eager to serve or too caught up in my world to realize the needs of others.

This book is 5 (gold) stars in my opinion. I like the book's idea which is to see if people would help others they don't know for the possibility of a reward. If they are rewarded with cash, then are they really helping people? or just gambling?

Just like the cover suggests, the story involves four main characters. I like how I found myself thinking the same way Parker (the main, main character) thinks in some of the situations, especially when it came to girls.

This story is touching, enthralling, and exciting. The character development is amazing, the descriptive prose is perfect, and the tale twists completely unexpectedly. The ending is written so well that it has left an undoubtedly permanent impression on me. This is a fantastic read, beginning to end.
