The Zoe Zone

Zoe loves books, writes horror, erotica and erotic romance, and can be found as close to the stage as possible at small clubs across the Southeastern U.S., rocking the fuck out to her favorite bands.


Under the name Holden Wells, she has published several short stories in gay erotica anthologies. One of these—Roughing It—has been revised and expanded into a novella and is now available in print and ebook format. The sequel to Roughing It will be coming out in 2014. A number of short stories featuring the same characters are also in the works, the first of which, "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," was released in ebook format in October 2013.


Zoe has also written a novel and a long story (both erotic romance) as Zoe X. Rider, both of which are currently seeking publication. In the meantime, she is working on a couple horror novels and a sequel to the erotic romance novel.

Doo-Lang Love - Chad Sosna This book was readable, but it was also very "surfacey." By that I mean that, outside of any dialog, the story was written almost entirely in exposition (lots of "telling," almost no "showing"). Because of this, I wasn't immersed in the story world. This is an iUniverse book, and I think that if this book had found its way to an actual editor instead of a POD publisher, it would have gotten fleshed out and ended up a good book instead of just an okay one.

The characters are likable, the main character's conflict does drive the story, and it's a quick little read. It just doesn't reach its full potential.
