#Book in the Spotlight from Toi Thomas #OurAuthorGang

So, yesterday I was hanging out over at A Small Gang of Authors sharing excerpts from my short story collection, Legend of the Boy, In the Window, and Other Short Stories. Then I realized that I don’t think I’ve ever really shared many thoughts or samples of that publication here at the ToiBox and decided I needed to share it. If you are interested, please go check out the post and read the excerpts.


“I like the idea of seeing myself progress as a writer and I also like being able to explore different genres. My collection of short stories, Legend of the Boy, In the Window, and Other Short Stories, is an exploration of an author’s voice and developing creativity. It’s, sometimes dark and intense, adult fiction that is suitable for teens.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords

Angel Lore: part 1 by Toi Thomas #OurAuthorGang

I’m hanging out over At Small Gang of Authors again today sharing some of my fascination with angels and how they inspire me. Check it out.

Here are a few things to know about me. I’m a huge Batman fan, I adore classic Betty Boop, and I love angels and angel lore. When I first started writing my book Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel, I knew I’d need more than my geek-girl fascination with angels to help me flesh out the characters of this story…” Read more at Angel Lore: part 1 by Toi Thomas #OurAuthorGang

A Small Gang of Authors: Book in the Spotlight from Joe Bonadonna #OurAuthorGang

I’m so excited to be a part of the new group. Check out what one of my new pals posted today.

Mad Shadows: The Weird Tales of Dorgo the Dowser 

Joe Bonadonna

“Valdar is a city of swordslingers and necromancers, witch cults and half-human races. It’s a city in a world of darkness, black magic and creatures of the night . . . a city where demonic entities serve the needs of any witch or magicman who can open a doorway into their domain.  This is my city. This is my world . . . a world of magic, mystery, murder, mayhem and monsters. I hunt anyone and anything that poses a threat to the people of my city.

My name’s Dorgo. Folks call me the Dowser.

Mad Shadows: The Weird Tales of Dorgo the Dowser, by Joe Bonadonna. Winner of the 2017 Golden Book Readers’ Choice Award for Fantasy.”…Read more: A Small Gang of Authors: Book in the Spotlight from Joe Bonadonna #OurAuthorGang

The Art and Business of Attending Live Events by Toi Thomas at GoIndieNow

See what happens when you’re under the weather, you miss your own guest post. Oops! Please, go check me out over at GoIndieNow! I’m sharing some insights I’ve learned over the years, and from those further along than I am, concerning live events and hope you, at least, find it entertaining.

It didn’t take me long to figure out that I was not the average writer, in more ways than one.

Since I’m here to talk about live events today, I’ll save you the shock and awe (an exaggeration) of listing all the ways in which I’m a little different and simply focus on the topic at hand. I realized that while, like most writers, I have introverted tendencies, my geeky nature has allowed me to overcome many of my social insecurities…
