Welcome to my new blog series! I will talk about why I love a series of authors who, most of them, are also dear friends to me. 

When I started thinking about this blog posts, I had no doubts about who was going to be the first one to be put on the spotlight: Rob S. Guthrie. Why? Because Rob is not only an extraordinary writer, but also a wonderful person. Indeed, he is one of the most generous persons I have ever met. I am grateful for that, since it was through one of his generosity acts that I happened to meet him. And since then he occupies and will always occupy a very special place in my heart.

But let's see why I love his books. Rob writes thrillers, some of them with a supernatural, horror touch that makes of them very exciting reads. His thrillers are fast-paced and keep you hooked since you start reading. The characters seem quite real, what is something quite good to find, taking into account that I have read lots of books with rather flat characters. The prose is quite good and you feel that every word has been carefully chosen, caressed, and finally put on the pages. That's why I enjoy reading his books, and that's why I cannot recommend more that you read his books.

Now, let's see a bit more about every individual book and where you can find them.

Black Beast was his first book on the Bobby Mac series, and it was the first book by Rob that I read. Indeed, that's how I met him. I had just started using Twitter to meet other writers and readers, and Rob was the second writer I met on Twitter. Another writer had recommended me his book, and when I saw that he was offering the profits of his sales to a family who had problems to pay for the school fee for their autistic son, I bought the book, and I fell in love with his writing. Bobby Mac had won a fan forever. Black Beast is a thriller with a supernatural twist that will keep you reading non-stop, so make sure you don't have important things to do before starting reading it.

Lost is the second book in the Bobby Mac series, and if the first book was very good, this one is excellent. Even more gripping, and including more horror elements, it is a book that you shouldn't miss. Everything I have to say about this great book is in my review. Click here to read it.

This book was quite a discovery. Rob calls it his "magnum opus", and it really is. It is one of the best books I have read this year so far, and it was so interesting, well-crafted, and gripping that I read it in just one afternoon. I simply couldn't stop reading! This book doesn't belong to the Bobby Mac series, and it follows Sheriff Pruett adventures while he tries to know how his life was reduced to crumbles and why. If you want to know more about this book, please read my review here.

So now you know more about why I love Rob S. Guthrie so much, both as a writer and as a dear friend. Just bear with me for a little longer, and you will know how you can know more about Rob and how you can follow him around the cyberworld and buy his amazing books.

Excellent, Cinta, and agreed. Rob is an excellent writer and person. One bit of advice before starting one of his books: gear up for a reading marathon. I read Black Beast and LOST straight through.

First, Cinta, I think this is a GLORIOUS thing you are doing for the writer community, and I would say that whether you featured me or not. That you honored me so deeply by choosing to write about me first, well, you've left me without words to describe how I feel in this moment. That in itself, coming from a writer, is about as moved as it gets. You are a talent, I am SO glad you are finally published (I am sending your books to the Children's Hospital Monday and dropping one copy by my own old cancer ward for the children there next week). You are more than a great writer and a great friend---you are a great human being. Love you. Rob

Not fair, Rob, you just made me cry a bit. I am very happy that my book will have a place in a children's hospital, so those children can read my silly stories and smile or even laugh. Really, I am really grateful for you doing that. You know I love you too <3

The blog is great and what I've read has convinced me to jump on the bandwagon for Mr. Guthrie.

Yay! His books are worth the effort of reading them, definitely. And I am also grateful to him because it was him the one who encouraged me to write for publication :D

Cinta,
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Rob's books, I rated Lost as the best eBook that I read in 2012 (and I read a lot). I can not wait for the third book in the series. I really wanted to read your reviews, but it appears that you're missing the hyperlinks, please add them!
Cheers, Carrie

Hi, Carrie.

The hyperlinks work for me. That's odd that they don't work for you :D
