Meet the Author

I live in Maryland, with my wife and three cats. I love to read and write, computers/technology, gaming, exercise. I’m a “closet author”, as in no one at my day job or any of my friends really know I like writing. Just one of those things I keep a secret.


I love the horror genre. I’m a fan of Brian Keene, Edward Lee, Richard Laymon, Bentley Little. I love horror because you can really create some wild, interesting stuff, as far as the imagination can take you.

    Disappointing

    >>I assume this is a 'young adult' book...frankly, there was a lot of promise with the storyline and it got lost in the main character's crush on his friend. The longer the book went on there more the story fell apart-and the more annoying the characters got. Especially the 'crush' constantly referring to her friends as white people in a derogatory way. Not cute. Waste of time.

    Jam packed with everything supernatural and I loved it!

    My Blurb:

    Alex is a normal guy working at a loading dock, a great big brother and an awesome best friend to Cindy, the girl he's known since kindergarten and also has the worlds biggest crush on. Who knew that normal could become some weird?

    Alex stumbles into a world he didn't know existed and quickly becomes mixed up in Vampire politics, the leader of the Demon world and savior of all man kind.

    He's had a busy couple of weeks. Being a Demon ain't easy.

    Lets Talk About It:

    This was a great book.

    Had it all: Vampires, Demons, Ghosts, Vampire Hunters, Love Drama, Kidnapping, Cults.. I could go on and on but you get the idea. The book was jammed pack with everything supernatural and I loved it.

    Alex is just this normal guy until he goes into a friend of his sisters haunted house and all of a sudden he's seeing ghosts and exorcising demons. Then he learns he's actually adopted and while searching for his birth parents learns that he himself is part demon. This all goes on while he's pining away for his best friend Cindy.

    The book takes you from his kindergarten meeting with Cindy all the way up to his learning how to control all of his awesome powers to saving the world with his Vampire friend and uniting Vampire and Vampire Hunter.

    At points I thought it was a little too lengthy in certain parts and the 'should I tell her? I should tell her!' internal debate over his love for Cindy was a little too much but neither took away from the fact that the book rocked and leaves you wanting more.

    And there was Bonus material. I thought it was going to be an intro to book two. It wasn't. It was a complete different story about Zombies that was good enough to earn an honorable mention.

    I can't wait to see what Glenn Bullion has coming out next!

    Great paranormal story!

    I was pleasantly surprised by Demonspawn. It's about a guy named Alex who, after many years, realizes that he is part demon. Not only does he have to deal with all these changes that keep happening to him, he also tries to deal with his feelings for his best friend Cindy. The story starts out with Alex and Cindy meeting in elementary school, and takes them throughout high school to adulthood. I liked seeing these two grow up together, and the many instances that resulted in sexual tension. I also liked the fact that Alex's younger sister Alicia grew up with them and they had a close friendship. This trio was fun to read about, and these characters were all very likeable.

    I haven't read many books from a male's point of view, so that was one of the things that made this book interesting to me. I'll have to admit, that I had the wrong impression of this book. After seeing the cover, and knowing that it was written by a male - about a male - I was expecting a "man" book. I know that is awful of me to say, but I was expecting lots of blood, gore, violence, etc... I will admit that I was completely wrong. There was a large amount of female interaction in this book, including a nice romance.

    The plot was unique and intriguing, the characters were well developed, and the pacing was great. I would recommend this book to a variety of adult audiences. It has a lot of different elements to it, including paranormal, romance, friendship, horror, and mystery. The book had a well rounded ending, but it sounds like another book could follow.

    Thrilling and Creative

    Ghosts, demons, and vampires all intertwined with sexual tension...what more can you ask for in a book? Demonspawn by Glenn Bullion has all of those things and so much more. Once I started reading, I literally could not stop until I had finished it. With just the right amounts of action, suspense, and intrigue, the reader is taken on a wild ride with Alex who is seemingly an ordinary guy just trying to find his place in the world. Until he discovers that he can see and talk to ghosts and that demons fear and bow down to him. Alex struggles on his journey of self discovery and finding out just who he is and what he is capable of. If you like supernatural books that have just the right amounts of horror mixed with love and friendship, then I'm certain you will love Demonspawn. I can not wait to read more from Mr. Bullion.

    Glenn-tastic? Glen-tactular? Splen-Glenn-did?

    Storyline: Ok, I tried to come up with a play on Glenn Bullion's name, but I just couldn't. But, that doesn't mean that Demonspawn was any less amazing!

    Alex Teague is a sweet guy, a little on the shy side and definitely lacking in self-confidence. What Alex doesn't know is that he has a lot more to offer the world than just his inability to dance. Alex is going through some changes and isn't quite sure how to handle them. Luckily, he has his best friend Cindy and his sister Alicia to help him adjust. Now, if only he could adjust as easily to the feelings he has for Cindy.

    Demonspawn is an easy and delightful read that could just as easily translate into a movie that I would be more than happy to stand in line for, pay outrageous amounts for popcorn, candy and sodas and even deal with annoying crowds to see.

    Grammar/Spelling: There were some minor grammatical errors throughout the story. I would suggest another read through by a beta. I noticed some issues when reading some of the dialogue. It was a bit choppy and used a bit too much vernacular for my tastes when for example saying "I got that" instead of "I have that". Also, there were a few instances of incorrect usage such as "baron" versus "barren." Honestly, these are just fine tuning things and in no way detract from the story.

    Character Development: Mr. Bullion's story follows the main characters from their formative years up through early adulthood helping the reader truly become attached to Alex, his sister and best friend Cindy. The sibling relationship is very believable and understandable. Alex is always on the look out for his little sister and in turn, she's also looking out for his best interests. Especially those relating to matters of the heart.

    Since the main character is.ahem.different than most (if not all) people, it would almost be difficult to really relate to Alex, but surprisingly, it's not. Alex is truly a stand up guy and his journey to self-discovery is both entertaining and thoughtful. Like most young people, even with his life being full of the paranormal and occult, his main concern is his more-than-just-friends feelings he's developed for Cindy. What should a part demon, total sweetheart kind of guy do?!

    Writing Style: I don't know if it's because of my own personal experiences with the supernatural (cue creepy music, please) or it's due to Mr. Bullion's ability to create a creepy mood, get your heart rate up and make you lean forward, anticipating the next moment, but the story has some absolutely scary and terrifying parts in it. His descriptions of the demonic world are fantastically horrific. I'm not one who scares easily, but even some of MY neck hairs stood on end at times.

    There were some pretty detailed graphic scenes, adult language and occasional adult situations. So, it's not for the faint of heart or very young readers.

    Continuity: As to be expected with great writing, I noticed no issues with continuity.

    Overall Rating: 4

    Demonspawn by Glenn Bullion is just plain great. But, not plain. Just great. I really enjoyed the ease and flow of the story from start to finish. I would encourage everyone who has ever been in love with their best friend and never realized it to read this. Also, anyone who has ever had to deal with their demonic powers should give this a read over as well. Great job, Glenn! I hope you put out more books soon!
