More About the Author

THE TRUTH ABOUT AUTHOR BRIAN M.W.

Brian M.W. (born Brian M. Worley, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania) is the author of two ground-breaking novels called, "Psycho-gehenna" ("Mind-Hell") and "H.O.T.E.L." He actually attempted to write his first novel when he was about 10 or 12 years old. He was attending F.S. Edmonds elementary school, in Philadelphia, when he was inspired to write his own novel (which he had entitled F-Zeros) about a group of rogue freedom fighters who used mechanized, robotic, machines to fight a war 100 years after a third world war. He had about three chapters written when his little brother (Darren) stole his incomplete manuscript and took it to school in order to turn it in for a school project. The praise that his younger sibling had gotten for ''his'' work had inspired him instead of infuriating him about its original theft. Brian actually started writing short stories when he was six, and he had won numerous awards for writing essays and such throughout his academic career; however he did not start writing mainstream fiction until he was about nineteen; which was when he completed his first full-length novel called, "Psycho-gehenna." The novel did not actually get published until 12 years later. "Psycho-Gehenna" was actually based on a short story that he had wrote in High School for a Halloween contest. His wandering idea had led to something quite extroidinary in the sense that Brian had not had any formal training in being a novelist at the time, yet, he created a visionary work that seemed to go beyond his years. His first book is still currently for sale.
Brian's second novel, "H.O.T.E.L." was actually based on a nightmare that he had back in 1997. He often had horrific dreams for reasons that were beyond his comprehension, and he decided to put them to good use; so he took what he could remember and then put it to words while twisting what he had seen in order to make it his own. The result would be a well-received book about a demented billionaire who had decided to hunt humans but only after finding them worthy of his attention by surviving a sick game that he played; wherein, he had built a hotel (which in the title is an acronym that means H: HUNT, O: OBSERVE, T: TRACK, E: ELIMINATE, AND L: LEARN). This place was like a human roach trap where people checked in but they wouldn't check out! Brian coined the book as a suspense novel while "Psycho-gehenna" was a horrific, mystery, science-fiction, thriller; he combined all three genres in order to come up with a new form of fiction writing. Brian M.W.'s second novel is also currently for sale:

Brian had a hard life and was almost claimed by the streets when he was fifteen. He was stabbed in the back (literally) by his best friend, and he died three times on the operating table before being brought back. He lived most of his life off and on in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He actually sold drugs as a youth but instead of buying clothes and sneakers he used the money to buy ink and paper and materials that he needed in order to see his writing dreams become a reality. A link to his blog can be found here:

Brian M.W. is a self-described horror and suspense writer who actually changed his pen name from B.M.W. because the car company "BMW AG" threatened to sue him for copyright infringement for trying to publish himself under his own initials, but that is another story. He currently sees himself abiding by this motto: "THERE ARE NO BLACK HORROR WRITERS WHO HAVE REACHED THE STATUS OF PEOPLE LIKE STEPHEN KING, DEAN KOONTZ, OR CLIVE BARKER. I WILL BE THE FIRST! MY IMAGE IS WHO I AM, BUT NOT WHAT I WRITE."

let me try to make it fast and painless. I downloaded this book awhilst ago and just now finished it. Thats not to say its bad and uneventful. Its too event full...

Too much detail about the smallest things. It needed to get to the meat of the story much sooner. And chop the length down some. Many unneeded words, but intriguing storyline.

After that being said I may consider checking out the authors upcoming novel No Man's Home (i think was the title).

M.w. Has potential to bud as a horror/thriller writer, less fluff needed.

I tried to read this as a free Kindle book, and all I kept thinking about is whether it's almost done. The beginning was catchy, it could have had a great story. The idea was there. Everything else, however seemed to be missing. As the story progressed, the main characters were so underdeveloped, and the minor characters were written about in so much depth that it felt like a straight to DVD C-actor plot was being set up right before your eyes. Just like a cable network's "original movie", it had plenty of sexual encounters, most of which not making any sense. When you thought that something interesting was almost happening, the writer completely killed it in the next chapter. This book, if available in paperback, can be used for kindling. If digital version is the only thing available then use it to pass grammar and spelling 101 on college.

I loved this book it had me on the edge of my seat all the way through, it reminded me of how I felt everytime I read a Dean Koontz novel. This book is a must read for anyone who loves a good thriller.

Very entertaining fast paced book that never seemed to drag through the story. Had a hard time putting my kindle app down all weekend because I wanted to see what happened next.
