About the Author

Silvano Williams was born in Puerto Rico in 1975 and moved to Houston, Texas during his teen years. There he went to High School and College and began courses to obtain a Minor in Creative Writing. During his school years, Silvano became an avid reader and writer for the sole purpose of mastering the English language. Although his writing generally received a good reception, he did not take his talents seriously, so he gave away many of his stories to friends or simply threw them away. Not being able to jump into a field of work relating to the entertainment business, coupled with having to make several hard choices in his life, he refocused his career.

With the advent of computers becoming a common household item and a new technology era happening during that time, the choice between a career path and his artistic nature became a logical affair, and Information Technology became his new passion while writing was set aside as a hobby. However, after almost two decades of daydreaming and enjoying the emergence of new mediums of entertainment and publishing, Silvano has reopened the doors to his imagination planning to expose the world to the crazy universes living inside his head. Currently, he resides in Katy, Texas with his wife and two children. And yes, they think he is crazy too.

"SPOONFED ADDICTION" BY SILVANO WILLIAMS This book takes you on a journey through the last few moments of the really messed up life of Adiran. Adiran is a drug dealer that seems to stay high on acid most of the time. The story starts off with a journal entry by the one girl that seems to genuinely love him for himself. The entire short story is written on a melancholy note in which Adiran seems to point out, in his own way, just how truly messed up the world is. The points he makes are even valid and really have the power to make you think. The shame of course comes with his untimely death and the loss of a young man that seemed to have a truly remarkable, bright mind regardless of his many addictions. The story was well-written and somewhat philosophical in nature, an interesting and intriguing read. 4.5 Ravens! Kitty Bullard / Great Minds Think Aloud

Spoon-fed Addiction is a transgressive fiction novella detailing the last moments in the life of Adiran P. Battlefield, a young, seemingly apathetic yet charismatic drug dealer. It is a story about love, loss, revenge and pain, which takes the audience on a front seat ride through the darkest places of the protagonist's mind. Allowing the reader a glimpse into an almost familiar world, dreams soon become nightmares, plans become failures and flawed perceptions of reality give way to horrible consequences. This is the story of Adiran's last night alive and the impact he had on those he left behind. this book started off really slow at first and than it picked it's pace up, this was a very good book, but not my kind of book's that i usually read though, I Recommended this book to everyone, i give this book 4 stars, everyone go check this book out.

This book is powerful action story; it is rated for 18 and above for a reason. It is for mature audiences. It is filled with graphic and raw emotions tricky language. This story was written by a poetic artist who pours out his gift in to a fast paced tale with words that stir the soul. The writing style is of a rhythmic realistic life description of a drug dealer and the conclusion of his actions towards himself and others. It describes the harsh choices of this character and the reality of what life could be depending upon his choices. This man-child loses his way and was led by dark forces to become discouraged and choose the path which could destroy his destiny and all he cherished, or to choose a different path. A powerful event fuels his rage and hurts him driving him to take actions that led to impulsive actions which may predict his future. It is filled with action and touching scenes. It expresses all boundaries of human emotions; this is an excellent teaching guide to help a lost teen find his way home again before he or she commits the unforgiving transgression and lives with the regret of it. A psychological thriller. This writer has the potential to be recognized as a remarkable author 5 stars; I recommend this book to the readers who can accept raw emotions and language to conclude with a very thoughtful powerful reality of life that went wrong. I put this one in my library.

I am a huge fan of "dear diary" type stories. When I first decided to take on this book review, I had read a few paragraphs of the story and started to dread it. What else could someone possibly say about the life of a drug deal who has obviously cracked? I put the Nook aside and decided to save it for another day. Having said it before, I will always give a book my best shot. No matter how much it does not entertain me I will at least try especially when the author contacted me for a review. Once I finished up school for the summer, I decided to give it a go. I scanned back through the first chapter to refresh my memory. I then sat up the whole night finishing the book. Meet Adiran, messed up druggie extraordinaire. Typical, and yes, rather cliché. But how else can you describe the main character from a drug addicted novella? You wanted to love Adiran, but you hated him for messing up his life. You wanted him to be loved, to have love, and get out of this train wreck of a life he was living. You wanted to know he was going to clean up his life. That doesn't happen. There is no fairytale love story hidden within these pages. Instead, the pages are littered with drug use, drug deals, sex, crimes, and death. After death, there is revenge which does nothing more than create more death and an ending that leaves your ripping out your hair, screaming "I WANT MORE!" It can possibly end just like that. What happened to.. You will get sucked in. You will find yourself full of emotions and right when you think you have the story all figured out......it ends. I am thrilled with the emotional roller coaster ride Silvano Williams took me on. Now I sit here, pounding away at the keyboard wondering..will there be more? When can I find out what happens to Adiran? Do the police catch up with him? Does he overdose? Spend the rest of his life in prison? Or, maybe he falls in love while on the run and heads to Mexico.. Hey, a girl can dream (or in this case make up the ending to a story not written)

**Print Giveaway** TBR reviewer: B.H This is all about the life and death of Adiran Battlefield. The story is weighed down. There's a lot of trailing on one subject that simply hinders the story. I feel like I'm reading a male teenagers journal, not a good thing. The grammar wasn't bad, some parts reverted to present tense instead of past which can be a jolt. I do have to admit his writing style does show promise. Maybe future writings by Mr. Williams will be on my TBR list if he changes his plot. I think he needs to stick with stories that will engage the reader more.
