who is this laura gibson and why is she taking credit for MY BOOK REVIEW!!!!!! I'm the one who wrote ".Schizophrenc and raw, Diamond unabashedly explores the subterranean impulses of an anti-spcial mind. Is there really hope for salvation or, is Kevin's pain the only pain he can feel? Diamnond's taut writng style echoes Hemingway." Now, come on, Laura Gibson the Gibson girl would never write such a rewiew...its all mine.

I like your book preview better than your poetry which sucks. I think you are Satans Disciple. Its a wicked read. I wish U would put a spell on my boyfriend so that he fs me and not the fing computer. I hate this computer. I hate the world. Anyways I met your cousin or at the very least your drinking pal, faded jaded rockstar Alan Merrill of Helen Merrill (Jazz Descent) Though one would swear he was a vodka collins at www.alanmerrill.biz I have a page at authors den Andrea J Williams but they keep writing up as a frigging visitor. Do I have to pay my dues? I sold my soul already!

COMPELLING AND UNUSUAL! A MUST READ!!!
Crashing Out In The Alphabets (Book) - 9/9/2001 4:52:34 PM
Writer Diamond has crafted an intriguing work filled with well fleshed out characters, human dilemma and near insurmountable difficulty. The volume is not meant to be a lighthearted romp for a lazy afternoon.

Verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyy interesting. Wow. It's so different from all the other serials on this. The profanity sorta sets a different mood and at first I thought it was un-necessary (did I spell that rite?) But as it went along I saw that it was just part of the story to make a point. It's very different. I have never read a story from the guys point of veiw that's been so...blunt. Cool

Very intense and real. There were images just jumping out at you. I could honestly see them conversating and I could see all the things he spoke of.
Crashing Out In The Alphabets (Book) - 5/25/2001 1:48:27 AM
A fresh new eye-popping and jaw-dropping story of a sick man who just may be an anti-hero. It was a great, easy, and entertaining read.
Crashing Out In The Alphabets (Book) - 5/17/2001 11:20:12 AM
Damn but this is a great work and i can't wait to read more! I love the imagery and it's easy to read too. Got into it straight away.Will be watching for more in the future.

At times author Garrett Diamond portrays such eccentric visuals..other times maybe getting side tracked on irrelevant material. If this is his first though, watch out for what is to come of this guy~!

Schizophrenic and raw, Diamond unabashedly explores the subterranean impulses of an anti-social mind. Is there really hope for salvation or, is Kevin's pain the only pain he can feel? Diamond's taut writing style echoes Hemingway.

This is really blowin up the spot Diamond! It has all the qualities that make a successful novel, lets face it, drugs, booze crack whores. I can't wait to read it Dam! This is exciting to me! Its been too long since I really sat down and my eyes were bleeding. The computer at work melted down after printing it...oh well...

Biting Down (Short Story) - 4/17/2004 12:51:46 AM
I cannot believe I laughed at that. I don't think I would have the balls to even write about this subject and make humor off of it. A story like this does take a lot of balls to write, feel free to quote me on this one.

I like your hard hitting style of writing. You might want to check your tense a tad on the next story ... nothing too major, just some little bits here and there where you have mixed present with past
Spell checker won't tell you that vile is awful and vial is what his stuff was in
I look forward to reading more of your work

Garrett Diamonds unique crafty voice. Hitting consumers over the head with his modern day salesman techniques. Screaming exclamation points emphasized to hell. You can't miss Garrett's point. The hammer is falling. Voices behind the shelving while your in the checkout line.
Yes I am Friends with Garrett
and this story is great.

..never give up kiddo..she's OUT there but FIRST she needs to be re-awakened within you.."ask and you shall receive"
Expect her to enter your life..no doubts..NONE!!!
Still Looking For Love (Article) - 8/9/2004 3:20:06 PM
I have experienced the same kind of thing as you. I have also found that many women have good reason to be suspicious of men. So many have given us a bad name. The thing is not to become despondent, as, nowadays it is very difficult for most people to meet those who have much in common with them anyway. Sooner, or later we all get the chance at a relationship and unless the 'other' person is carrying too much emotional 'baggage' there is a very good chance of it working out. Hope you have found someone by now.
Still Looking For Love (Article) - 1/6/2004 7:39:41 AM
What you say is certainly true of some women Garrett. I think they have made it difficult, for some of us 'decent' ones. I like mannners in a man, and even I hold doors open for people who don't even say thanks, let alone give me a smile for bothering.
I do not paint all men with the same brush, though I have met and known some very devious ones.
I wish you the best. Don't become cynical though, as there are some lovely ladies who will be looking for someone like you. Where or when you can meet them is another matter. Perhaps it is just fate?
Good luck and I like your writing.
Still Looking For Love (Article) - 6/21/2003 12:28:30 PM
I would hesitate to call it style.
I would hesitate to call it writing even.

The Real Wrath of Mother Nature (Poetry) - 6/26/2008 2:52:32 AM
You are correct, Mother nature is ravaged by storms and all things sent out by nature. It is not always pleasant, but it sometimes brings people together to help each other over it. Good does come of things too.

Image laden! Although I know this is corporeal in nature, this reader also sees something metaphoric woven into the bitmap depicting a type of spiritual decrepitude.

Ah yes . . . the memories of Grandma. My Fathers mother was my most favorite person on earth. And even twenty years after she passed, no one has ever taken her place in my heart. Gunvor was her name, Gunvor Cederberg! A very strong, loving, persistant, wise human that sticks to my heart like dew in the morning. Thanks for this dude! All the best! Richard

It is so sad that someone can make you this upset. Those people must be pretty sick. It is good to have an outlet for your anger. Hopefully you will feel better now and whoever they are will leave you alone.
The Gardener (Poetry) - 9/30/2004 8:15:55 AM
That woman must be pretty damn special! So lucky to have a poem written for her.
You Know What You Are (Poetry) - 9/25/2004 6:55:15 PM
What on earth has happened to you Garrett? Something has made you very angry indeed.
Hope you get over whatever it is, writing like this will do you no good at all!

Colin Powell told us he sometimes worries all night about the War. He also said Bush goes to sleep at 10 p.m. and sleeps like a baby.
Quarantine (Poetry) - 1/6/2004 8:02:15 AM
This is do good! And so apt for me! I know what you mean Garrett and I feel exactly this way at the moment.
I am sorry that you have been hurt so many times.
The Two Faced Awaking (Poetry) - 1/6/2004 7:56:11 AM
Exactly!! I think all caring people are used as stepping stones. But, do we ever get to be appreciated in this world? Maybe we have come into it, knowing our roles were to be stepping stones?
After all, how many times do we allow ourselves to be used as stepping stones? It must be part of who we are.
Maybe the next time, it's the other way round. Some are here to be helped and other's are here to help.
Cancer (Poetry) - 1/6/2004 7:51:32 AM
No matter how much you can show your love, if the person it si showered on can not reciprocate, you gradually feel this way. It's a very painful fact of life Garrett.
Have you noticed, how one always loves the other one more? Isn't that so unfair?
Further Down (Poetry) - 1/6/2004 7:48:27 AM
Yes, I know of one in particular this could apply to.

It's amazing how it's possible to crave to kiss! But it's so true! Kissing can be SO good. For hours even. The flesh of lips on lips. Wonder why it can be so good? (Only with certain people too, not always who you expect it's going to be good with!)
You're too busy for love. (Poetry) - 1/6/2004 7:42:32 AM
The 'busyness' got through really well! If anyone's that busy, they're going to miss out!
