King of the Pond

Posted on June 12, 2013

“As I lay there watching Robin sleep beside me, I realized that she was right all along. I didn’t need to live in a castle — a shack in the woods with her would do just fine. And for that matter, I didn’t need to be prince of the ocean either, because with her by my side… I was king of the pond.”

Tootsie’s Review of Sand Dollar at Amazon

Posted on June 09, 2013

★★★★★  Entertaining Novel!

“Nice, light reading that holds your attention. I loved the twist in this simple, rewarding story. It makes you think…what if???” — Tootsie 880


NOT a typical love story, but a great read!!

Posted on June 07, 2013

★★★★★

“Noah and Robin meet and fall deeply in love, but many things happen that prevents a “happy ever after” life together. Robin has a secret, and Noah is ruled by parents who have their own ideas of how his future should be. This is a wonderful tale that will hold your interest from start to finish. I could not put it down until I finished it. It also has a surprising ending, which explains some of the unusual things that happen in the book. The author has written a great story.”
Barbara Ashworth

Sebastian Cole’s Bio

Posted on April 03, 2013

Sebastian Cole

Sebastian Cole’s debut novel, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love, reflects over forty years of personal life experiences. Born and raised in New England, Sebastian joined his family’s business after graduating from Brown University in the 80s. A true romantic, his life is defined by following his heart and pursuing his dreams, which is why he has become a novelist. Sebastian writes from the heart, believing in true love, love at first sight, and finding that one person in life you’re meant to be with.

Sand Dollar is currently a finalist for the 2012 Book Of The Year Award in the Romance category at ForeWord Reviews magazine, and it was also a finalist in the ForeWord Firsts debut literary competition for first-time authors. With a rating of 4.6 stars on Amazon, his book has been getting rave reviews, many of which compare him to his favorite author, Nicholas Sparks. Whether or not he ever achieves that kind of success, touching the lives of others through his writing has been the single most gratifying thing he’s ever done in his life.
