“I’ve to say that I loved this book. I really liked how the author used her words to describe every little detail of how Klemens sees Dominik (physically and emotionally) and I liked how she really made their characters strong but, at the same time, very fragile: family can really do their number on their children and both Klemens and Dominik know it very well.”

“This book has left me sobbing and almost utterly speechless. It is by far one of the most astonishingly complex stories that I’ve ever read. I’m so moved and I know no matter how long I sit here and think I’ll never be able to express my true feelings in this review.”

About: Klemens Reinstadler is a passionate musician, with a focus on piano and violin. Music has been the focus of his life since his birth in Austria. To further his musical prowess, his parents allowed him to travel to the school of Julliard in America where his love of music flourished. Nearing the end of his junior year, the head of his department insists on an end of the year performance from Klemens, and the Austrian is beyond prepared to accept. That is, until the head insists he take on a German transfer student, with little knowledge of the English language, but with a well-known talent for singing. Klemens, suddenly pressured with the unknown prospects of a duet, a concert, and the mysterious Dominik Engel, must learn more than just how to play a new score. At the end of it all, music isn’t just about the notes.

“The author had me immersed in the story from the first chapter,and the description of the meteorites falling left me feeling as if I was right there with her. The main character is likable and relatable and I found myself caught up in wanting to know her eventual fate.”

“If you need a book that’s going to rip your heart out in the first chapter, keep you up all night, and genuinely make you root for the relatable and likable main character, I suggest wholeheartedly that you read Apocalyptia by Alyssa Hubbard. This book is now in my top ten.”

About: A star. It hadn’t been a war, a government takeover, or even an earthly disaster. It was a star that had ended the world, with Crystal right at the heart of it, and all that stood between her and instant death was a desk.

Determined to reinstate her old way of life, Crystal must come to terms with more than just physical loss, but the chance of losing herself in the process.

“I really enjoyed this collection of imaginative short stories… I thought the stories were very unique and different from most of what you read.”
– Goodreads Review

Rating: *****
“This book is absolutely wonderful. The handful of stories it contains had me hungry for more. My only complaint is that the book is so short – it’s less than 50 pages. I want more!”
– Amazon Review

Rating: *****
“New to smash, not new to writing. Perfect technical writing, and Exceptional imagery in this collection of shorts. A natural for sci fi / horror. I would like to read more full length work, to see how dialogue is handled, but have no doubt it would be equally well crafted. Assuming Alyssa Hubbard is teasing us and perhaps testing the water at smash (?) I expect to see a small (perhaps large) army of fans building up here. Allow me to be your first.”

Genre: Fantasy/Sci-Fi

Published: May 29, 2013 (Relaunch November 8, 2013)

About: A collection of short stories including: “The Protagonist,” “Basking in the Glow,” “The Children of Klimt,” “The Watchers,” “Speaker of the Forest,” “The Wolf,” and “The Ended World,” and “The Violin Girl.”

A group of short stories which question what being human truly means. Through the eyes of a character in a novel, a metal soldier, a painting, a group of mannequins, the forest, a wolf boy, a creation lost in an ended world, and a living instrument, humans and their never-ending trials with friendship, acceptance, love, and survival come into the forefront. What will you think when at the heart of every creature, the love and hate for humanity grows?

“I’ve never been able to say that I actually felt emotions when reading a story, but I did with this one. The detail that Alyssa includes in her books can make you feel like you are there in that exact moment. I had to stop reading this book and come back to it because of the great detail that overtook my emotions. I have read it again since the initial reading and still enjoy it. If you are looking for a very detailed, in the moment story, you’ve got to read The Mind, the Body!”
-Goodreads Review

Genre: Horror

Published: October 1, 2014

About: Perhaps what people fear isn’t hiding in the shadows, but standing in the light.

The Mind, the Body is a collection of short stories, featuring a rusty spoon, a crow-nosed piano player, a starving wolf, two sets of fingernails, a pair of best friends, and a man made of ash. A bit of blood and folklore tied together to make a little book of horror. Fear is more than monsters and ghost stories. What we fear most is often times what lurks within us.
