George Mattheson’s Books

Enigma by George Mattheson

“Who do you pray to and why?” But I have never really prayed. I have always conversed with God. I am not a religious person or a saint. I am a sinner, and I do believe in God as an entity an organization, for the CIA has always been a faith-based organization of theologians.

“Enigma is about the experiences of a diagnosed Schizophrenia individual who converses with God thru Michael an Archangel. While being the son of intelligence operatives he’s not sure, who is Michael. Could Michael be just another Clandestine Operative for the CIA?

For as he thought God is the CIA and Washington DC is the church of God. “I have been experiencing the effects of stigmata lately, so I started to write this novel the best way I know how, by sharing both truth and fiction. For the truth, you’ll have to find it on your own, but the fiction part is what I see in visions, memories, and dreams. It holds a hidden meaning for only the wise to decipher.” Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers’ Favorite

Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers’ Favorite: Enigma by George Mattheson is a novel about the psychology of a schizophrenic character who never liked to study as a child and who never read any books. He confesses that he has never been able to watch the television for more than two hours. But he believes to have a kind of communication with Michael, an Archangel. This is a man who believes the CIA is God and Washington, DC, the Church of God. But can this son of intelligence operatives figure out who Michael actually is? What is the hidden import in his reminiscences and wild assumptions?

George Mattheson has written a psychologically strong novel that allows readers to explore the mind of a schizophrenic individual, understand how reality can be distorted, and what happens when someone lives in their own world. The novel has a deep sense of pathos and from the moment the protagonist — who happens to be the narrator — mentions about being transferred from one psychologist to another, the reader gets a strong idea they won’t be reading anything like in mainstream literature.

This is a unique narrative, breezy and as engaging as it is fast-paced. The quirkiness in the narrative is arresting and the first-person voice is so beautifully done that it pulls the reader into the worldview of the protagonist powerfully, irresistibly. From the beginning of the story I wondered if the author could tell an interesting story, but as I read from one engaging page to the next, I understood the story is filled with dread truths and lessons that aren’t obvious. Enigma is a deceptively simple story but it has strong political and religious undertones, uncovering a subconscious that contemporary politicians wouldn’t want readers to awaken. It is utterly gripping, written in gorgeous prose and a strong narrative voice.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite: Enigma by George Mattheson is George’s true story of his battle with schizophrenia and his conversations with God. George doesn’t pray; he talks to God through the Archangel Michael. Born to Intelligence Operatives, by the time he is 27, George has been diagnosed with both schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder and he doesn’t always know who Michael is. Could he be a CIA operative? After all, the CIA is God and the Church of God is Washington DC – isn’t it? Despite everything, George had a goal in life and he went after it. He got his Master’s Degree and he even went to work for the CIA as an Intelligence Operative. He even lived for a time in Trinidad and Tobago, proving to one and all that life is to be lived, no matter what gets thrown at you.

Enigma by George Mattheson is an odd story, part truth and part fiction, although the fiction is what George sees in his dreams and his visions, in his memories. It is written almost as a fictional novel in a first-person narrative and is in the format of a diary. It is strange but it is also quite compelling reading, very interesting once you get into it. Each event is written like a short story so they are separated and that, in my opinion, does make this more readable. I enjoyed the style that the book was written in; it was easy to follow and made perfect sense. George is nothing if not honest and has coped with what life has thrown at him incredibly well – there’s a lot that could be learned from this book. Overall, it is a good book, very well written and down to earth.

Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers’ Favorite: George Mattheson’s Enigma: Born as the Hand of God is a unique memoir that will leave its readers grappling between truth and fiction. As the son of the only licensed sea captain in Trinidad, with a mother of East Indian descent, Mattheson leads an extraordinary life. At the age of six, he began talking to Archangel Michael and was later diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder when he was twenty-seven years old. Amazingly, he has provided intelligence to the CIA since he was seventeen years old, although he has never worked for the agency in a professional capacity. Enigmatic, vivid and original, Enigma is an extraordinary life story as we get a glimpse of a complex but a beautiful mind.

Enigma: Born as the Hand of God by George Mattheson is an intriguing memoir of a diagnosed Schizophrenic who claims he talks to God through Archangel Michael. Born in Georgetown, Guyana, George Mattheson grew up in Trinidad, Tobago and the United States of America and finally settled in Converse, Texas. This is an extraordinary story that blurs the line between reality and visual and auditory hallucination. The story starts as he undergoes hypnosis supervised by a therapist, and as such this thought-inducing memoir unravels. His early childhood is certainly unique but it is quite an effort to separate truth and visions. And as we follow Mattheson in his life journey, we get a glimpse of an extraordinary man, even if we cannot decipher the hidden meaning behind the enigma.

Hannah (Brides Of The Oregon Trail Book 1) by Cynthia Woolf

Desperate times call for desperate measures, so when Hannah Granger’s little sister takes off for Oregon with a group of mail-order brides to meet her new husband, Hannah has no choice but to follow. She expects her sister to find trouble, and she does. But what Hannah doesn’t expect is to fall for the hired gun traveling with the wagon train as they make their way along the treacherous Oregon Trail.

The bounty hunter is tall, dark and dangerous, everything she’s avoided her entire life. But when she begins to suspect criminals are riding just four wagons back, she’ll do just about anything to convince him to listen…and to protect her fragile younger sister from the truth about what this trip is costing them both. The only thing bounty hunter Joe Stanton wants is to avoid trouble. He’s tagging along on this trip to the Oregon Territory to put a little extra cash in his pocket and take a break from the hunt. The only woman he ever loved broke his heart and his last bounty cost an innocent man his life. Joe’s had enough blood, death and betrayal to last a lifetime.

So why, then, does he make Hannah’s secrets his own? Why does he lie to protect her? And why does the stubborn woman’s dogged attempts to help him track down criminals drive him insane with worry?Maybe because he’s falling for the red-headed beauty. Maybe because if he doesn’t keep her close, they’ll both end up dead.

Lydia (Brides Of The Oregon Trail Book 2) by Cynthia Woolf

Lydia Granger thought she left a life of struggle and poverty behind. As a mail-order bride on her way to Oregon City, a secure future is assured. But when the wagon train arrives in Oregon City, she discovers her fiancé is dead and her dream of a safe future is shattered.

Moments after her dream is stolen from her, a gift arrives. Her wealthy fiancé left her everything he had. Life for Lydia should be easy, but the truth is much darker and more terrifying than she could imagine, for her fiancé’s death was no accident, and the man who took his life wants everything, all the dead man’s riches.

Detective Max Caldwell lost his wife to a brutal killer, a man who will stop at nothing to take what he wants from the world. He killed in Chicago. He killed in Oregon. It’s only a matter of time before he strikes again. Max seeks not only justice, but vengeance for his wife’s death and has no qualms about asking the innocent Lydia to help him hunt for her fiancé’s murderer. Because Lydia, and her inheritance, are the bait Max will use to lure evil into the light. Too late he realizes Lydia, with her soft heart, beautiful smile, and collection of rescued animals is not only powerful enough to take down a killer, but she just might melt the ice around his heart.

“Love this book by Cynthia as with all of her books she rocks her books out of the park. This book is about Lydia going on the wagon train with her sister and brother-in-law. Lydia was supposed to marry Mr. Mosley and she found out that he had suddenly died. I think she was surprised that he had left her everything including her house which was perfect for all her animals that she rescued. Long story short is that this is a great read and fast paced you can never go wrong with Cynthia’s books. Love this set of books.” Reviewed by Chris Linhart

*************************

About The Author: Cynthia Woolf is the award winning and best-selling author of more than thirty-three historical western romance books and two short stories with more books on the way.

Cynthia loves writing and reading romance. Her first western romance Tame A Wild Heart, was inspired by the story her mother told her of meeting Cynthia’s father on a ranch in Creede, Colorado. Although Tame A Wild Heart takes place in Creede that is the only similarity between the stories. Her father was a cowboy not a bounty hunter and her mother was a nursemaid (called a nanny now) not the ranch owner.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and her great critique partners for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

The Rigel Affair by L M Hedrick

The Rigel Affair: Award-Winning Chilling WW2 Thriller Novel with Rip-Roaring Romance

Abandoned by his part-Cherokee Ma, Charlie Kincaid escapes servitude with his uncle. He jumps a boxcar, accompanied by his schoolmate Roxy, who is escaping troubles of her own. Charlie becomes a US Navy Diver.

Mattie Blanc is from a genteel New Zealand family. But when her brother’s friend persuades her to take a ride, it all goes horribly wrong. Desperate, she flees her family’s stifling expectations for a new life in Auckland.

After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, Charlie sets sail for Auckland aboard the USS Rigel. And there she is, the girl of his dreams. Mattie is everything that Roxy isn’t– sophisticated, tender, and patient. But the war intervenes… Rigel embarks for the Pacific war zones.

Charlie’s letters are sporadic. Mattie is tormented by doubts; did he truly love her, or was it only a dream?

The Rigel Affair produces a rip-roaring wartime romance and chilling danger unknown to most.

Unique, Different and A Little Weird by L. J. Day

Have you ever been called a name?

How did that make you feel?

What did you do?

Unique, Different, and a Little Weird is an entertaining and engaging social story about misconceptions that happen every day in school and on the playground. It teaches different strategies for dealing with frustrations, and the importance of communication. This story also encourages everyone to embrace their own uniqueness.

This creative story is about a boy who overhears someone calling him weird. He gets angry, and wants to scream and yell and hit, but then remembers something important. He remembers strategies his teacher taught him that help him calm down. Once he’s calm Tommy apologizes to him and clarifies the misunderstanding of the meaning of the word weird.

“To be different, unique, and a little weird, is not as bad as I originally feared. So be these things each and every day, because we’re all unique in our own special way.”

From The Author: This book is a great social story about misconceptions that happen every day in school and on the playground.  It teaches different strategies for dealing with frustrations, and the importance of communication. Kids won’t even know they are learning, how awesome!  This book would be an excellent addition to any teacher’s classroom read aloud list.

From The Inside Flap: This book is for Donald, Trey, Lincoln and Jackson. For all the children who’ve ever felt different and weird.  Each of you make this world a better place. You may be Unique, Different and a little weird, but each child is special and loved.

My Special Mind by Laura Day and Trey Day

All too often children with ADHD feel as if the focus is always on correcting or highlighting the negative behaviors associated with having ADHD. As an educator and a mom with a child who has ADHD, I wanted to bring acceptance to certain attributes of having ADHD. “My Special Mind” is a book all children can relate too.

ADHD can be fun, exciting, and adventurous. An ADHD mind is a special mind.

“My Special Mind” is a great reminder of how special everyone’s mind truly is. My son and I embarked on this special project, where he takes the reader on a journey inside the mind of ADHD.

Buckle up, an 8-year old’s mind is definitely an interesting place to be!

“My mind is always with me, thinking, and creating fun things to do and see. That’s what’s so special about me”.

From The Author: Trey is diagnosed with severe ADHD, ODD, Epilepsy, and sensory sensitivities.  With all of this comes challenges.  I would always hear grumbles from him about how “he just can’t do this or that”. I wanted to find a way to inspire and empower him to prove to him that anything is possible if you put your mind to it, and work hard for it.  We sat down together and I had him make 2 lists.

1 list for all of his successes, and another list for all of his struggles.

I took those 2 lists and created this beautiful story. “My Special Mind” started out as a project just between us, a special way for us to bond.  After reading the finished story, I soon realized that this book was truly something special and felt compelled to share it with the world.  Trey’s perspective on daily life and his thought process is felt by so many children and adults alike.  That’s what makes this book unique.

Martin and The Tree Seed by Laura Day

After moving to Texas, Martin befriended an 8-year-old boy named Kevin. The two boys quickly became inseparable. One morning while walking to the bus stop, they came across a truly unique object. Imaginations ran wild with Martin, who was convinced it was a once in a lifetime alien discovery. Fossilized alien poop! Kevin had a different theory. As a way to help bring his friend back down to earth, Kevin drew a picture of what the discovery would look like fully grown. Before he could give it to Martin, it was confiscated by their teacher. Kevin was forced to look on, as Martin befriended the new girl in class. Emotions ran high! Did Martin betray his best friend, or was he just being nice to the new kid in school? You decide!

From The Author: Martin and the Tree Seed was inspired by a student of mine.  The student was a reluctant reader.  I racked my brain, searched, and tried different books for him to read in the classroom.  Nothing I tried seemed to hold his attention.  So, one day I decided to write him a story.  Martin and the Tree Seed started out as a short story, which he actually read.  So, I kept writing, and he kept reading.  Before long my first chapter book was born.  It was such an exciting and rewarding experience.

The 100th Meridian Murders (CJ Hand Novel Volume 5) by C. G. Haberman

After proving his reputation as the top sharpshooter in the world, Ivan Talcott settles in China. Here, he plans to achieve his goal of becoming a multimillionaire by the age of forty. Suddenly, and without warning, he’s told to leave China, and never return. Undaunted, he will aim for his goal in the USA.

While on a hunting trip Nebraska, the sharpshooter agrees to proposal that will fulfill his goal. The hunt becomes his final challenge before he begins a new life. The result of his grisly kills uncovers dark secrets long hidden in the halls of the U.S. Congress.

CJ Hand returns to Lincoln, Nebraska after surviving a brutal attack that left him a battered man. His wife, Dee, encourages him to complete a doctoral degree and form the Great Plains Consulting firm. This new challenge, they hope, will lead him away from a turbulent path to a stable life.

His company gets the boost it needs when he signs a contract for work along the 100th meridian. The study leads him to the deadly path he left years before. The discoveries, while using drones, leads his field and office crew into a threatening, dark world. The people he admires, and to whom he owes his success, return to help. They again face the evil they once thought erased.

The peaceful, rural prairie holds secrets that turns violent. The deadly hunt begins, spilling blood across the western United States.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: For those of us following criminal investigator CJ Hand, this is what we have been waiting for, and you won’t be disappointed with ‘The 100th Meridian Murders: Volume Five by C. G. Haberman.

Realistic characters, descriptive writing that transport you to the Mid-West, USA, and a well-constructed mystery will keep you engaged all the way to the end of the 60th chapter.

Let me begin by telling you that character Ivan Talcott has studied people well for years and blends into each crowd with ease. He is a business man by degree with a life goal of “building an empire of wealth without government interference”. His professional skills as the top sharpshooter in the world help him secure funds to offshore accounts and keep him on track to become a millionaire by age forty. Called back to the US from China, he accepts a proposal.

Investigator CJ Hand who now suffers from PTSD after recovering from being beaten nearly to death and left to die three years ago returns to Lincoln, Nebraska. His wife Dee stands by his side and encourages him to completes his doctoral degree. He is challenged by his entrepreneurial spirit to form his own consulting firm. One of his first consulting contracts leads him into familiar territory that he thought he had left behind when a man in Keya Paha County finds a human skeleton.

An environment activist group that stumbles into the 100th meridian study wants to know who or what group sponsored the study?

Like any good mystery, it is the readers job to relate to one or more of the characters. Join CJ Hand as crime comes in a secretive fury like the tornadoes that thunder across the Great Plains of the US.

I endorse ‘The 100th Meridian Murders’ by C. G. Haberman. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on August 7, 2017.

I encourage you to read: Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 1), Mill Creek Malice: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 2), Dead Man’s Run: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 3), Lake Of Lies: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 4) and The 100th Meridian Murders: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 5) by C. G. Haberman

Lake of Lies: CJ Hand Novel Volume 4 by C G Haberman

Curious to know what disturbed the deer they open the shelter door and hell erupts. The sudden failure of an outstanding student, his fiancée’s new job opportunities, and a personnel action weigh on CJ Hand. His daughter calls with news of his former wife.

Dr. Trisha Baker becomes the hunter with the intent to destroy a predator. The revenge is for her friends and herself, and to erase the painful memory of losing her fiancé.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: ‘Lake Of Lies’ is just one of four, hard to put down, CJ Hand Mystery Novels written by C. G.Haberman.

Main character CJ Hand uses his love for, comfort of and the serenity of the back roads from Iowa to South Dakota to capture its breathtaking beauty through his camera photo lens which illustrates lessons that he shares with his ecology and botany students.

Intuitive moments and detailed memories have become part of his life since working for the Department of Justice. While forcing himself to move forward, CJ’s past is never far behind. The news hits him hard when the parole board releases Tom Vaughn and he knows someone must warn Tom’s wife Donette to stay alert.

A call from his daughter Meaghan stirs some of the personal demons that haunt him. A trip down memory lane brings him back to the lake where he and his wife Marnie had spent countless, glorious hours together. He sits and stares out across the lake to the shoreline where the shadows still hold remnants of ice and watches as several boys cast their fishing lines into the cold water with hopes of catching a catfish. The ring of his cell phone brings him back to the present.

His life with his fiancée Dee, his many influential friends and co-workers find their world mostly centered on the Mill Creek State University and the surrounding communities. CJ reluctantly confides in psychologist Dr. Adriane Peterson. Like all psychologists she asks a lot of questions, like “You said there were other students, especially female nontraditional students with sudden grade drops, correct?” He nodded. “The question is: why the focus on Tammy Day?”

Two boys brave the frigid temperature at the southern edge of an abandoned farmstead in hopes to “get the biggest damn buck you ever did see.” Hiding in silence they hold their bows taught with arrows when the approaching deer notice something and their heightened awareness and instincts cause them to bolt. Understandably upset the boys strike out on a new hunt for the source of the hunting debacle and what they discover makes them gag.

It is more than Dr. Trisha Baker who works at Mill Creek State University in the Psychology Center can stand. She sets out to seek revenge for her fiancé, friends and most importantly to “destroy a predator”.

I endorse ‘Lake Of Lies: A CJ Hand Novel’ by C. G. Haberman. Each book in this crime, fiction, mystery series stand alone. I also have the privilege of reading and reviewing ‘Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 1)’. Dead Man’s Run and Mill Creek Malice are a couple more novels in the CJ Hand series.

I encourage you to read these four CJ Hand Novels sold in both print and e-book. Enjoy the written mastery of author C. G Haberman. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on February 25, 2015.

Dead Man’s Run: CJ Hand Novel Volume 3 by C. G. Haberman

For CJ Hand, the corral bathed in the morning sunlight is a false sign of the day to come. Minutes after starting his run up Deadman Road, a dense fog shrouds the canyon. In the heavy, gray mist a hushed purr from the road bend behind him forces CJ to take cover in the stand of ponderosa pine and cottonwoods. He waits for the danger to pass. An hour later he stares at a dead man, blood covering the understory of brown pine needles and yellowing cottonwood leaves. The second death lay in front of CJ. The mountain lion is the focus of the first death, but the local County Sheriff realizes something other a mountain lion lurks in Dead Man’s Canyon. CJ Hand and Tom Thies join the county sheriff, investigating the deaths. A Black Hills mining geologist who traveled to the Nebraska Pine Ridge is the key. The first dead man might be the answer. What they find hints at far-reaching impacts for the area and the United States.

Mill Creek Malice: C. G. Haberman Volume 2 by C. G. Haberman

The animal stench triggers Dawn’s gag reflex. The constant grinding of stone on stone irritably attacks her frayed nerves, and abruptly stops. Odd scratching sounds echo in her half-conscious state. She pulls herself into a sitting position and stares at a cage door. She gasps at the thing peering into her eyes.

A year before CJ Hand arrives as the new instructor at Loess Hills Community College the former professor inexplicably disappears. With the case going cold local law enforcement officers seek help. Investigators run into problems with the strange case involving native plants, and seek CJ’s expertise.

CJ is thrust into a world of pharmaceutical collusion when he finds the rare plant in question, but he also discovers an old ammunition box. When he opens it a nightmare begins. A geocache note inside written in a riddle, places him in the grip of matching wits with a killer. Key to the investigation, and the game, are–a small reptilian creature and the rare plant.

The new General Education Dean adds to CJ’s mental and physical anguish, suggesting the violation of his teaching contract. The summer class begins in two weeks and CJ has a choice to make: stop his part in the investigation or resign from his contract.

Deadly Circles: CJ Hand Novel Volume 1 by C. G. Haberman

The pall of death hangs over two distinctly different valleys separated by eighteen-hundred miles. One a modest, unknown channel drained by a small cool-water stream and the other a magnificent gorge carved by a roaring river that separates two states. Unknown to a man, tormented by loss and intensifying anger, both valleys hold his fate. A bloody mist suddenly fills a truck cab. It is not the shot but the seconds after that begins change for criminal investigator CJ Hand. Beset with his recent loss and pent-up anger he takes leave from a tangled bureaucratic mess. Trying to find self-worth he agrees to help friends by probing the accidental drowning of a friend’s son. The image of an uncomplicated investigation is quickly shattered. CJ encounters a maze of deadly circles surrounding the death. He begins unwinding hidden tentacles of political power and personal greed gripping Elm Creek valley. Affecting his personal life are two intellectual and intuitive women who help him come to grips with what he has been running from, or toward, for a decade. DEADLY CIRCLES is a fast-paced novel exposing the ugly underbelly of insidious criminal activity.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel is a fast moving fiction crime mystery that enchants the reader with breath taking descriptive beauty with possible environmental struggles within the Great Plains of the USA.

The main character, CJ Hand was born in Hand County, South Dakota. As a criminal investigator CJ Hand takes the reader on a vivid pictorial trip down the winding rural roads of Nebraska into the small towns where life and love among other things thrive with a cast of over 40 characters. The dialog flows very smooth and this reviewer can visualize this book series becoming an excellent made for TV series.

Enjoy the descriptive beauty of the landscapes and relate with the rural folks going about their daily lives. Just keep in mind that nothing is perfect and even here there festers a quiet under tone of mystery, personal and political greed, crime and an unexplained death.

Haberman weaves a tale that keeps the reader turning the pages with descriptive artistry like in this quote: “A breeze whispered through the pine and cedar trees as he entered the small acreage. Colored lichens dotted gravestones and the stately old trees. He moved from grave to grave reading the inscriptions. Several large round, prairie-hay bales rested in the warm autumnal sunshine in the east half of the cemetery, devoid of headstones. CJ squatted down, grasped a handful of loose hay, examined the dried vegetation, and rolled it between his palms. The earthy, redolent grass brought a melancholy rush. The death of a friend’s son brought him here and a tragic farm accident united him with the woman he loved. He stood in the earthly solitude, stillness within him. A wind gust interrupted the moment. An important task lay ahead.”

I endorse Deadly Circles: A CJ Hand Novel (Volume 1) and you can follow this book up with Mill Creek Malice (Volume 2) as the series continues to unfold under the mastery of author C. G. Haberman. This review was completed on December 5, 2014.

The Naturalists: A Historic Novel (The Hayman Saga Volume 1) by C. G. Haberman

Where is Nebraska? The measure lies in locating Chicago and Denver, then calculating the midpoint between the two. There exists land called the Rainwater Basin. To find the remains of the best basins requires a calling, the calling to understand the startling dependency of life. In the heart of the United States the last of the Hayman lineage, Chance Hayman, experiences the nibbling erosion and decimation of this North American keystone. The Naturalist begins in the 1820s with a minister full of desire to serve his God. Reverend Abner Hayman is not the normal German Reformed minister. His ministerial sincerity and verve excites his Pennsylvania congregation. As with many successful men he will gain fame and follow a path fraught with temptation, deception, and loss. His path across the rapidly expanding nation leads him to Illinois. There he loses a son to a calling of his own. John Hayman does not scorn the country know as the Great American Desert. Abner Hayman’s son finds a land that fills his spiritual yearning, a land of grass and marshes that is unyielding, but teems with life and promise. It is this young man, the naturalist, who finds love of life, land, and women who is the taproot for the future Hayman families who fight to save the rainwater basins from extinction.

The Naturalists A Historic Novel (The Hayman Saga Volume 2 ) by C. G. Haberman

Gripped by a spiritual call, John Hayman found the land of his dreams. The land tested him, but he learned to live with it and survived to foster a land ethic. In the second volume of The Naturalists, the new era of John’s three sons unfolds and they are as diverse as the land. The youngest, Henry, focuses on what his father dreamed about: a peaceful land covered with grass and marshes. As more people settle the area, Henry faces changing land use that gives little thought to the effects. His life is not without personal heartaches and devastating emotional discoveries. Over the first half of the 20th century, he and his youngest son, Jacob, follow the path recorded in journals that have become the focus for future Hayman naturalists. A deep family unrest threatens to forever change the Haymans and the land on which they thrive. Out of this turmoil, Jacob emerges to face the trying task of altering the path that threatens the Rainwater Basin and his family. Will Jacob’s son inherit a tranquil path to the 21st Century?

500 Miles To Go by J. Conrad Guest

Romance set against a sports backdrop, 500 Miles To Go is about the importance of, and the risks associated with, the pursuit of dreams. When our dreams cause angst to our loved ones, they often become nightmares.

Gail fell for Alex Król before she learned that he risked his life on dirt tracks during the summer months to the delight of fans who paid to see cars crash—the more spectacular the wreck the taller they stood on their toes and craned their necks to see the carnage. When Alex makes his dream to drive in the Indy 500 come true and he witnesses the deaths of two drivers in his first start, he must ask himself if his quest to win the world’s greatest race is worth not only the physical risk, but also losing the woman he loves.

Review: “A sweet love story gives way to the love affair with speed… First loser becomes disillusioned winner, hindsight waxes philosophical, and a lonely man reminds us, ‘One doesn’t find love… Love is a choice.’” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

Excerpt: “I looked at the phone, silent on the nightstand, and for the first time since she walked out of my life, I thought about calling Gail. Never had I longed so much to hear her voice. ‘Alex Król,’ she’d say into the phone, the way she used to when we were young. I imagined her telling me how glad she was that I’d called, that she’d listened to the race on the radio, had watched it later that night on tape delay, and had celebrated with me. She’d go on to say that she’d followed my entire career, was proud of all that I’d accomplished, maybe even adding that she’d been foolish to worry about my getting hurt. I’d tell her it was okay, that I understood. Then I’d ask her to join me for dinner when I got back to town, and she’d sigh in that way she had, and tell me that she’d love to…”

Alex paused, and Alicia waited patiently for him to continue:

“But so much in life never plays out the way we envision it. My marriage was proof of that.

“I re-imagined the phone call: Gail’s father would answer. He’d congratulate me on winning the 500 – assuming he was aware of it. He’d ask how I was doing, and I’d tell him, ‘Great, I’m doing great.’ Then I’d ask about Gail. He’d tell me that she’d met a young man a year or so after we’d broken up, married him, and that she was now mother to two healthy toddlers, a boy and a girl. Then it would be my turn to congratulate him, for becoming a granddaddy. Maybe, to save face, I’d nonchalantly ask him to say ‘hello’ to Gail for me, give her my best, hoping he wouldn’t, not wanting her to know that I’d asked about her. More than likely, I’d leave it at ‘Congratulations’ and simply say ‘Goodbye.’

Backstop: A Baseball Love Story In Nine Innings by J. Conrad Guest

Backstop plays the catcher’s position for any team in any city in America with a major league ball club. You cheer him when he delivers, and boo him when he doesn’t. Told in his own words during the seventh game of the World Series in what could be his last game after fourteen years in the major leagues, Backstop chronicles his rookie season, takes the reader to Chicago where he finds romance, and reveals his heartbreak in the aftermath of an adulterous affair.

Cheer for Backstop on and off the field as he plays the most important game of his career—haunted by the ghost of his father who passed away before Backstop achieved stardom—and fights to win back the heart of the woman he loves more than the game.

Backstop was nominated a 2010 Michigan Notable Book, while the Lewis Department of Humanities at the Illinois Institute of Technology adopted it as required reading for their spring 2011 course, “Baseball: America’s Literary Pastime”.

Reviews: “Superbly crafted with a deft, tender touch, Backstop: A Baseball Love Story In Nine Innings is a compelling tale of following the true passions of the heart. A truly heartwarming read.” Reviewer: Apex Reviews

“Backstop’s a read where slow development contrasts with fastballs, slow plans with hurried mistakes, and slow reading with quickened excitement and delight. The dialog has a sweet old-fashioned feel, pleasant humor, and serious depth, and the whole is a seriously enjoyable tale.”  Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

“This is where J. Conrad Guest meets us in Backstop: in this beautiful, hopeful place closest to our hearts, where we play for the love of the game, and we love with everything we have.” Reviewer: Rachael Perry-Author of How to Fly

Chaotic Theory by J. Conrad Guest

What power, to hold in one’s own hands the ability to affect the present by altering the past… In the twenty-second century the world population has dwindled to fewer than a billion, with total extinction expected within a decade.

An erotic science fiction tale of love and love lost, Chaotic Theory centers around three profiles of a solitary individual, Antanas Rupkus, a young Lithuanian.

In one he is a musician endeavoring to keep alive the work of American jazz musicians of the twentieth century. Stoic and aimless, Antanas is incapable of anything but physical intimacy the result of having witnessed, as a boy, his parents killed by Estonian immigrants in search of fresh water. In another profile, he is a sculptor, filled with hope and the belief that love can overcome all obstacles, until he loses the object of both his inspiration and desire.

In the third, Antanas is a writer whose essays define the mid to late twentieth century as the point in history that set man on the path to extinction. But alas, his wisdom comes too late. If only Antanas had lived two hundred years earlier; but perhaps he can, if what Kazys Galdikas tells him is true…

The Cobb Legacy by J. Conrad Guest

In this non-traditional romance, Cagney Nowak is writing a novel around the 1905 shooting death of baseball legend Ty Cobb’s father by his mother a week before Ty was called up by the Detroit Tigers. Although she was acquitted by an all-male jury on the grounds that the incident was accidental, the townspeople of Royston, Georgia, always thought otherwise. When Cagney begins to relive the night of the shooting in his dreams, more than a century later and in the guise of Amanda Cobb, he is led to discover his father’s deepest secret.

More than a mystery romance, The Cobb Legacy is the story of a man’s efforts to connect with his dying father, a World War II veteran suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Cagney must also fight to come to terms with his obsession over the Cobb legacy as well as his own adulterous affair and impending divorce, while doubting that love with an old friend can be his.

Reviews: “… an eye-opening tale of drama, scandal, and intrigue highlighting the living, breathing history of a fatally-flawed, intrepid folk hero. Five stars.” Reviewer: Apex Reviews

“Threads come together with gentle touches of fate, and there’s a satisfying completeness to the tale which goes beyond past and present into eternity.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

Excerpt: “I used to think Romeo and Juliet was the greatest love story ever written. But now that I’m middle-aged, I know better. Oh, Romeo certainly thinks he loves his Juliet. Driven by hormones, he unquestionably lusts for her. But if he loves her, it’s a shallow love. You want proof?” Cagney didn’t wait for Dr. Victor to say yay or nay.

“Soon after meeting her for the first time, he realizes he forgot to ask her for her name. Can true love be founded upon such shallow acquaintance? I don’t think so. And at the end, when he thinks she’s dead, he finds no comfort in living out the remainder of his life within the paradigm of his love, at least keeping alive the memory of what they had briefly shared, even if it was no more than illusion, or more accurately, hormonal.

“Those of us watching events unfold from the darkness know she merely lies in slumber. But does he seek the reason for her life-like appearance? No. Instead he accuses Death of amorousness, convinced that the ‘lean abhorred monster’ endeavors to keep Juliet in her present state, her cheeks flushed, so that she might cater to his own dissolute desires. But does Romeo hold her in his arms one last time and feel the warmth of her blood still coursing through her veins? Does he pinch her to see if she might awaken? Hold a mirror to her nose to see if her breath fogs it? Once, twice, three times a ‘no.’”

Cagney heard the leather creak as he shifted his weight in his chair.

“No,” he repeated. “His alleged love is so superficial and selfish that he seeks to escape the pain of loss by taking his own life. That’s not love, but obsessive infatuation. Had they wed—Juliet bearing many children, bonding, growing together, the masks of the star-struck teens they once were long ago cast away, basking in the comforting campfire of a love born of a lifetime together, not devoured by the raging forest fire of youth that consumes everything and leaves behind nothing—and she died of natural causes, would Romeo have been so moved to take his own life, or would he have grieved properly, for her loss and not just his own?”

January’s Paradigm (January Trilogy Book One) by J. Conrad Guest

In this fantasy romance, Robert Porter is enjoying the fruits of success: a best-selling novel featuring a hard-nosed detective circa 1947 named Joe January and a lucrative contract for the sequel. But his world comes crashing down around him when he witnesses his wife’s infidelity.

As Porter sinks into a morass of grief over her abandonment, only one person can help him regain his self-esteem and dignity. One man alone can help Porter set things right … and that person’s name is Joe January. But he doesn’t even exist… or does he?

Reviews: “J. Conrad Guest’s attention to details of plot is meticulous as he keeps his novel pulsing with energy and tension skillfully woven with an entertaining combination of romance, betrayal, mystery and thrill. With storytelling mastery on full display, powered by engaging narrative and emotional intensity of individual story line, January’s Paradigm is a novel that delights its readers with a captivating premise with serious literary work of thoughtfulness, complexity and depth.

Those looking for a fantasy with diversity may find themselves bewitched. This 5-star read is definitely worth reading for its originality. Highly recommended.” Reviewer: Enas Reviews

“In January’s Paradigm, J. Conrad Guest has taken the heartbreak of sexual betrayal and turned it into a romance-fantasy… Readers will not be able to put it down.” Reviewer: Current Entertainment Monthly, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Excerpt: Once more at peace with myself, I rounded a corner and collided with a small gargoyle.

It was grotesque. Standing at no more than five-foot, three inches tall, it was dwarfed by my six-foot, three-inch frame. It was obese, too; its girth greater than its height. Its personal appearance was obscenity personified: a bulbous nose, red from too much drink, supported glasses so thick the magnifying principle worked both ways. The watery blue eyes, disproportionately huge, glared back at me with cold, savage indifference.

And I recognized the beast of my recent nightmares.

At the same moment, dawning recognition replaced the indifference that had previously resided on those hideous features. A smile broke from behind gray lips; its teeth, black from the rot of ten thousand Baby Ruth bars, jutted at a multitude of crazy angles, like those of some weirdly mutated rodent. It grunted once; the sharp exhalation accompanied by halitosis so foul I was forced to take a step back.

Then it was gone, leaving me staring after it in disbelief.

One Hot January (January Trilogy Book Two) by J. Conrad Guest

Imagine an alternate history in which the United States fails to enter World War II in time to help the Allies defeat the Tripartite before Germany becomes too strong to defeat. A future in which Germany perfects genetic engineering and is eradicating whole nations in an effort to secure the empire Hitler vowed would last a thousand years; a future in which Hitler lies in a secret cryogenic chamber, awaiting treatment for a cancer for which a cure has finally been discovered. Imagine a future in which a faction of genetically engineered people, opposed to Hitler’s tyranny, choose to travel back in time to amend future history by influencing Winston Churchill to withhold from U.S. Intelligence the vital decrypt specifying the date and time of the raid on Pearl Harbor. Imagine a fast-talking private investigator from the Bronx named Joe January who uncovers a seemingly impossible plot by grudgingly agreeing to help a pretty young woman locate her missing father—a Professor of Archaeology from Columbia College who must prevent the secret of Hitler’s location from falling into the wrong hands…

By the end of One Hot January, January is transported into the future where in the sequel, January’s Thaw, he must survive by his century-old sagacity in our modern world.

Reviews: “Joe January is a private investigator operating in the South Bronx in the 1940s. He writes in first person, has a wry sense of humor and keen observation skills, and, somehow, he’s looking back on history from a future we haven’t yet seen. Could Joe January still be alive and reviewing his past in 2082?

“Dialog’s so pitch-perfect I imagine watching a black-and-white movie, hearing words in my head. The combination of Bogie, WWII and time-travel is truly beguiling, and, while this novel’s clearly complete in itself, I’ll certainly look forward to reading the sequel when it comes out.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

“He may be Bogart-cool and clever, sharp-tongued and fedoraed—but underneath the veneer Joe January reveals himself both in his vulnerability and the most ageless adventure of all: a journey of the heart.” Reviewer: Rachael Perry-Author of How to Fly

Excerpt: Later that night Lance saw Melissa home, via cab. The decorated war hero and gentleman nonpareil no doubt sealed their business venture with a handshake, not a kiss. The kiss, he would anticipate, would come later.

I was mildly disappointed to find that the mole on Ginger’s breast had no twin elsewhere; but the consolation her many other gifts provided helped to ease my disappointment. Still, I found Ginger to be a taker and not a giver, and so what pleasure I gained was the result of my own giving, which she was only too eager to take.

While Lindy, who drove home alone, was robbed of any chance to give, and therefore gained neither pleasure let alone solace from the image of where and with whom I had lain.

Over the decades since that night, I’ve tormented myself over the fact that Lindy had suffered her disappointment alone, perhaps the previously unrecollected melody, I Don’t Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You, echoing unsympathetically through her fading consciousness, her pillow taking the tears she could not help but give.

Tomorrow is forever. I should’ve held on for one more night.

Ah, so many regrets. What’s one more?

January’s Thaw (January Trilogy Book Three) by J. Conrad Guest

Many people obsess over their past, but no one more than I. Perchance it’s because, as a man out of time, I left behind so much of it unlived.

If that makes little sense, consider that I’m a time traveler. Although the backdrop for my story is time travel and alternate realities, the underlying theme is a more human one—of love lost, another love found only to be lost, and of a decision, the result of a single regret brought about by the realization that my self-professed courage to never risk my heart to love was instead cowardice, to rectify a wrong in a life filled with myriad regrets. You may judge me, as it is man’s nature to judge others, or discount my story as the ravings of a lunatic mind or simply the fiction of an overactive imagination—but before you do, I ask that you read on to the end, and then ask yourself if you would have acted any differently.

Review: “In January’s Thaw, J. Conrad Guest gives us an unforgettable adventure seen through the cracked lens of our broken present and an all-too-possible, what-if past. Full of intrigue, romance and scathing social commentary, it is both an ambitious novel and an exciting, page-turning imaginative quest for that which is beautiful and true.” Reviewer: Rachael Perry-Author of How to Fly

A Retrospect In Death by J. Conrad Guest

A Retrospect In Death, a mainstream novel with elements of the supernatural, the afterlife, life, living, and romance, is a story about discovery. You think you know yourself? Perhaps you only think you do. Maybe those with whom you’ve shared a room, whether briefly or long term, know you better.

On the other side of the Great Divide, the narrator, who remains nameless throughout the narrative, encounters his higher self—the part of him that is immortal and connected to the creator—and learns (much to his chagrin) that he must return to the lifecycle. But first he must be “debriefed” by his higher self, and so they set about discussing the man’s previous life—in reverse chronological order: knowing the end but retracing the journey, searching for the breadcrumbs left along the way.

Do those closest to us know us better than we know ourselves; or do they, as we often insist, know jack? Consider that only in death can you really know, and understand, who and why you are—or were. And then ask yourself: At that point, is it too late? Does it even matter?

Review: “Introspective, like a personal remembrance of life, this book is more than diary or autobiography, but less than truth perhaps because it’s viewed entirely through the eyes of the (dead) protagonist. Slowly working towards the unseen facts of his character’s past, J. Conrad Guest’s A Retrospective In Death is a languid, oddly compelling tale, evoking an era with a wealth of intricate detail, creating a memorable yet achingly ordinary man, and searching for meaning and purpose in it all.

“Song titles, movies, well-known names and places, events in sports, evocative phrases from the past and much, much more build up into a powerful retrospect of an era, all told in a voice that changes convincingly with changing enthusiasm, self-deprecating humor, and psychoanalytical hints from the higher self. It’s a pleasing, though very long tale, and the ending is beautifully worth the languorous journey.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

A World Without Music by J. Conrad Guest

Romance with a twist: Can a Gulf War veteran suffering PTSD finally leave behind his past to find the music that will make his life worth living?

Reagan returns from the first Gulf War haunted by horrific images of Tom Wallach, a dead marine he brought back from the desert. Seeking refuge from his nightmares and broken marriage in a jazz quartet in which he plays bass guitar, fifteen years elapse and he has a one-night fling with Rosary, a beautiful young woman he meets at one of his gigs. When his ex-wife comes back into his life, Rosary’s obsession turns into a fatal attraction.

With help from Wallach’s ghost, the daughter Wallach never met, and a friend who is much more than he appears to be, Reagan discovers he must let go of his tortured past if he is to embrace the future.

Review:  The Unsettling Beauty of a Perfect Chord… “Discussions of life, love, faith and the universe fuel J. Conrad Guest’s intriguing dialog-based novel A World Without Music. Music itself ‘stands half way between thought and phenomenon,’ a fascinating concept that leaves the reader pondering all. But the conversation’s powerful and real, and the tale moves on; locations change, topics flow and grow, and the reader soon feels like a traveler delighting in overhearing strangers who might become friends.

“This novel’s path through music, movies, sci-fi, baseball, politics, faith and romance are endlessly intriguing and deeply involving, even as mystery deepens and danger looms. Allusions to jazz and song lyrics are as natural as the flight of a softball into the air, smoothly delighting the reader whether they’re caught or simply catch the eye. And Reagan, born to lust, love or jazz, has choices to make, and scary consequences to navigate.

“And the music of the common man proves as vital to our world’s symphony as that of heroes and villains throughout all time. A World Without Music reads like a masterpiece of music, culture and life and is highly recommended.” Reviewer: Sheila Deeth-Author of Divide by Zero

Excerpt: Reagan followed Wallach to the living room, where they sat, facing each other, in two high-backed chairs.

“How do I know I’m not the one dreaming?” Reagan whispered.

“You’re not.”

“But how do I know?”

Wallach shrugged. “Pinch yourself if you don’t believe me.”

Reagan refrained from doing just that; at some level he knew this was real: across from him sat the ghost of Tom Wallach.

“Death is permanent,” Wallach said.

“Don’t I know it.”

“I’m sure you do. Aren’t you glad now that you didn’t pull the trigger on your Glock? You were so convinced that you’d lost Sarah forever, but it was just a bump in the road. She needed time to realize what you meant to her. Had you pulled that trigger –”

“I know,” Reagan said, looking away in shame.

“No, you don’t, Reagan. You have no idea what that would’ve done to Sarah.”

Reagan sighed. “Suicides rarely understand the ruin they leave behind. They’re lost in their own pain.”

Wallach nodded and said, “Not pulling the trigger was an act of courage. Your work here is not done.”

“And you know this how? Are you omnipotent?”

“All knowing? No. Let’s just say I have night vision.”

“You can see the future?”

“The future is made up of myriad possibilities, all predicated on the choices we make, or fail to make, each and every day.”

Reagan thought about that for a moment, before asking, “So is there an alternate reality, one in which you came home from Kuwait?”

“There is only one reality; but I am attuned to all possibilities, including the one of which you spoke.”

“How do you bear it?” Reagan said. “Knowing what might’ve been?”

“It brings me much comfort.”

“Don’t you feel cheated?”

“No. My life played out as it should have. My widow and daughter would not be the people they are today had I come home from Kuwait.”

“How do you know they wouldn’t be better off?”

For the first time since he’d begun haunting Reagan’s dreams, Wal­lach looked uncertain, as if he didn’t know how much he could, or should, share with the living.

“My death set something into motion.” And then, as if he couldn’t – or wasn’t allowed – to say more, Wallach changed direction.

Message from Author J. Conrad Guest:

“Welcome. If you’re reading these words, you have my thanks for finding me. A critic calls my work, “Gritty, entertaining… real. Romance for the non-romantic.”

Genre? What’s that? My characters face everyday obstacles: love (finding it), loss of love (ouch!), regret (who doesn’t have a few of those?), infidelity (from love to hate to compromise), death (the Grim Reaper recently visited me in a dream to tell me he was coming for me. “Great,” my dream self said. “You bring the whiskey and I’ll provide the cigars”), redemption (that transformation from the anti-hero the reader wants to like into the hero for whom they want to root), and more. I write about relationships between men and woman, and fathers and sons. Yet each character, although flawed and in some cases broken, is in their own way extraordinary. I write mainstream, non-traditional romance (Fabio will never grace the cover of one of my novels), and soft science fiction. I hope you’ll find here something that appeals to your literary appetite.

I was named Joseph Conrad for my dad’s favorite novelist.

As a boy my dream was to become a Major League Baseball player, but my parents had other ideas. They urged me to play it safe, to learn a trade, get a job with an automotive company, and retire in forty years with a gold watch. To me that was a prison sentence. I didn’t want to reach my current age wondering, What if?

I was creative and wanted to leave my mark on the world. How to go about achieving that dream perplexed me for many years, until I sat down to write my first novel. January’s Paradigm was born from a bloodied and bruised heart. What started as therapy for me turned into a passion. My dad often criticized me for not finishing what I started, and I was determined to finish a novel. When Dad read my second draft, after two years of labor, he was pleased.

While I geared up for submitting my child to agents and publishers I struggled for a name. A nom de plume was out of the question. I wanted to use “Conrad” but didn’t wish to be compared to the man who today is considered one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. I finally settled on J. Conrad Guest and have never regretted it.

My novels are available in brick and mortar bookstores and at Amazon in both print and Kindle versions.”

Sam: The Cat Without A Tail by Gloria Lintermans

Sam: The Cat Without A Tail follows the trials of Sam, a young Manx cat with a soft, white puff of a tail.

As he discovers that he is indeed different from everyone around him, he learns and helps to teach the importance and beauty of diversity and self-worth.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Sam: The Cat Without A Tail by Gloria Lintermans touched my heart. As a mother and grand-mother I think all parents and grand-parents should take the message in this book to heart and share this delightful, well written story with children of all ages.

Sam the cat, is a Manx kitten, which means he has a soft, white, cotton puff for a tail. It isn’t long before he becomes self-conscious that his tail is different from the tails of the cats coming into his yard.

Thinking that he is not welcome to curl up under the tree with his new friends, Sam retreats into isolation.

One day Sam finds out how smart, special and talented he really is and his despair turns to self-acceptance and the ability to join in on the activities around him.

The illustrations by Kristina Tosicare are remarkable. The truth within the story needs to be shared with all children. Any and all attempts to boost the self-esteem of children around us, is our adult responsibility.

Author Gloria Lintermans gives some much-needed advice for parents and grand-parents at the end of this book. I encourage you to pick this book up in print or e-book and share it with the children around you. It is a story for all times.

I purchased Sam: The Cat Without A Tail so I can share its message with my grand-children. I hope Author Gloria Lintermans writes more books to help children and educate the adults around them. My review posted on April 18, 2019.

*************************

About The Author: Linda Burson, a native of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, has been writing ever since she was a teenager. She started out writing memoirs and continued writing by attempting several nonfiction pieces.

After attending college for a couple of years, she left to pursue other interests and to travel California, the state in which she resided at the time. Besides traveling, a lot of her free time was spent reading mysteries, romance and women’s contemporary novels. During this time, Linda met and married Anthony Burson, now her husband of over 30 years. They left California when Anthony joined the U.S. Army, which gave them the opportunity to travel the United States, Europe, and even live in Germany where they gave birth to their first daughter, Amanda. Once they returned to the U.S., they relocated to Connecticut and had their second daughter, Kayla.

As an adult, Linda attempted additional writing projects in more difficult subject matters. She tried to write her grandfather’s life story—his life in Italy and his move to Buenos Aires and entrance into America through Ellis Island. She found his escapades as a young coal miner in West Virginia and his later years as a train hopping hobo to be fascinating. Unfortunately, life got in the way and Linda never completed his story. One day she hopes to make another attempt at completing it.

After several other attempts at writing nonfiction and assisting her youngest daughter, Kayla, with a children’s story, she gave up writing to focus on raising her two daughters, being a wife, running her own custom computerized embroidery business and taking care of her dog, a Lhasa Apso named Nathan. After a serious bout of breast cancer, Linda eventually closed down her business after almost 15 years. She decided it was time to attempt writing again. This time, however, with nothing to distract her, she decided on tackling fiction, a contemporary romance with a dark edge.

In January of 2013, she sat down with her laptop and started writing notes about how her novel would progress. After that, the writing began and it never stopped. Before she was aware of it, her idea of a single book turned into a trilogy, which turned into a much longer series. 

When asked about inspiration, Linda has this to say: “Nobody really inspired me to write, but I do remember my mother and father always saying ‘anything you put your mind to you can accomplish. Don’t ever let anyone tell you, you can’t do something.’” Having the support and encouragement of my husband Anthony and my two daughters, Amanda and Kayla, is also very important. Having my youngest daughter Kayla, who is a writer and editor as well, to offer advice and knowledge has helped me to stay focused and continue to write.

No More Hallelujahs by Ann Christine Tabaka

Welcome to my ninth book of poetry, and my first chapbook. Being a chapbook, all the poems are themed to fit the title, No More Hallelujahs, remembering past glory and losing it to the present times. Some of it is deep and heart wrenching, but hopefully also enlightening, and a reminder that we all have something to be thankful for, something to lose if we cease to keep it close to us. Memories are powerful gifts to each of us. I want to thank everyone who has supported me and helped me along the way, especially my husband Karl and my son Damon. Please enjoy the journey! Namaste!

Just Breathe by Ann Christine Tabaka

Just Breathe is my seventh book of poetry, which includes two Haiku & Senryu books. This is my first book of all micro-poems. I love the challenge of telling a complete story in as few words as possible like a breath of fresh air. It allows the imagination to fill in the details and paint its own picture.

Review: The philosophical wisdom and depth of these poems reveals Ann Christine Tabaka’s brilliance as a poet. Her concise and terse expression is quite impressive in such immortal phrases and lines, full of profound thoughts: “music is beauty/ to the soul”, “the delicious feeling / of no place to be”, “beneath the surface / lies the truth”, “the moon calls my name/ it knows me well”. The poems included in JUST BREATHE by Ann Christine Tabaka, one of the greatest contemporary poets, have an irresistible appeal. –Santosh Kumar, Editor, Cyberwit.net

Reaching For Dawn by Ann Christine Tabaka

Reaching for Dawn is my sixth book of poems, which includes two books of Haiku & Senryu style poems. As my life has changed with age, my style has changed, and hopefully grown, since I first started writing rhymes and musings in the 1960’s. I now see the universe on a deeper level than I did in my youth. 

Once again, I hope that you enjoy the journey as you travel with me into the inner depths of my observations, my mind, and my feelings. Maybe you will find a little of your own thoughts and feeling in my words as you read along.

Everlasting: A Lifetime Of Poems by Ann Christine Tabaka

Welcome to my third book of rhymes, poems, and musings. My first book was Overcast Mind, My life in Poems, and my second book was It Is Still Morning, A continuation of My Life in Poems. As my life changes and evolves, so does my reason for writing. What once started out as a means of survival has now grown into a passion.

I write because something deep inside me calls out to me to do so. I have added some of my original sketches and illustrations again in this book. A few of them are new ones I drew this year. Once again, I invite you to join along with me in a journey of fantasy, of truth, and of life events. Like real life, sometimes my poems are happy, silly, contemplative, questioning, sad, or even desperate.

Charles Salzberg’s Books

Second Story Man by Charles Salzberg

Francis Hoyt, arrogant, athletic, brilliant, manipulative and ruthless, is a master burglar. He specializes in stealing high-end silver, breaking into homes that seem impenetrable. He’s never been caught in the act, although he has spent some time in prison on a related charge, time he used to hone his craft and make valuable connections. (Hoyt is based on two real-life master burglars: the so-called Dinnertime Bandit, who only stole when his victims were home, and The Silver Thief, who was only interested in high-end silver). Hoyt follows the money. In the winter, he works down south, primarily in southern Florida and Georgia, around the Atlanta area. Summers, he moves back up north, where he plies his trade in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

One day, Charlie Floyd, brilliant, stubborn, an experienced investigator, who has recently retired from his job with the attorney general’s department for the state of Connecticut, receives a phone call from Manny Perez, a Cuban-American Miami police detective. Perez, who’s worked with Floyd previously, wants to enlist the former investigator in his efforts to put an end to Francis Hoyt’s criminal career. Floyd accepts the offer and they team up to bring Hoyt to justice.

Second Story Man, told in alternating chapters, representing Hoyt’s, Floyd’s and Perez’s points-of-view, develops into a cat-and-mouse contest between the two lawmen and this master burglar. As Floyd and Perez get closer to their prey, Hoyt finds out they’re after him and rather than backing down, he taunts them, daring them to bring him in. As the story develops, the stakes get higher and higher, and Hoyt, who is always concerned about proving he’s the best at what he does, even resorts to murder. Eventually, the story climaxes in a confrontation between the three men.

Henry Swann Mystery Series

Swann’s Last Song: Henry Swann
Mystery Book One by Charles Salzberg

Skip tracer Henry Swann cares little about anything but money, so when a beautiful Upper East Side woman shows up in his office and hires him to find her missing husband, he smiles and takes the cash. But when this seemingly simple missing-person case turns into homicide, Swann finds himself trapped in a complex web of connections and multiple identities that takes him out of New York City and across two continents.

Praise for SWANN’S LAST SONG … “Swann’s got the smarts and hard-boiled cynicism of Sam Spade, but he’s also got a wicked sense of humor that keeps things cool even when the action gets hot.” —Brian Kilmeade, author of New York Times bestseller The Games Do Count

“Salzberg’s a hell of a writer. He delivers thrills, insight and plenty of laughs. Swann is a very cool take on the classic P.I.” —Andrew Klavan, author of True Crime and Don’t Say a Word

“A veritable travelogue of suspense, SWANN’S LAST SONG grabs hold of the reader and doesn’t let go. Salzberg’s anti-hero is a soulful investigator and one of the most paradoxically endearing characters I’ve come across. I hope this isn’t Swann’s last song.” —Joy Behar (co-host of The View)

“Salzberg defies expectations left and right in this subtly subversive, genre-twisting page turner. SWANN’S LAST SONG is where literature meets entertainment” —Mark Goldblatt, author of Africa Speaks

Swann Dives In: Henry Swann Mystery Book Two by Charles Salzberg

Swann Dives In is a mystery that goes deep and rarely lets the reader catch a breath.

Henry Swann’s last case nearly killed him, emotionally and physically. Now he’s sworn off his old profession and taken on a steady gig. But climbing stairs to hook poor people up to cable is hard on his knees… and not the kind of connections he’s good at making. So when an opportunity arises to bring order to chaos for a price –his secret pleasure in life –Swann is pulled back in.

The case starts simply, with a call to find a burglary suspect who’s gone on the lam. But Swann is soon on the trail of a wealthy lawyer’s rebellious daughter, who’s disappeared along with her disreputable boyfriend.

Finding the beau leads him into the dangerous midst of cutthroat academics, sexy librarians, and killer book collectors, with a priceless first edition of Tender is the Night the surprising prize along the way.

Swann’s Lake of Despair: Henry Swann
Mystery Book Three by Charles Salzberg

When rare photos‚ a scandalous diary‚ and a beautiful woman all go missing at once‚ the stage is set for three challenging cases for Henry Swann.

It begins with an offer to partner up with his slovenly‚ unreliable frenemy‚ Goldblatt. The disbarred lawyer-turned- “facilitator” would provide the leads and muscle‚ while Swann would do all the fancy footwork. A lost diary by a free-loving Jazz Age flapper is worth enough to someone that Swann takes a beat down on an abandoned boardwalk.

Pilfered photos of Marilyn Monroe propel him deep into the past of an alcoholic shutterbug‚ his wife; and he’s hired to search for a lonely writer’s runaway girlfriend. The cases converge and collide in a finale that lifts the curtain on crucial‚ deadly facts of life for everyone—including Swann himself.

Praise for Swann’s Lake of Despair: “Smart, satisfying, even profound, this is exactly what every mystery reader is looking for: A terrific story, full of wit and originality, and a master class in voice. Charles Salzberg is a true talent, and his Henry Swann is a classic — complex, hilarious, and completely charming.” —Hank Phillippi Ryan, Mary Higgins Clark award winner for The Other Woman, Agatha winner for The Wrong Girl

Swann’s Way Out: Henry Swann
Mystery Book Four by Charles Salzberg

A friendly poker game leads Henry Swann out to Hollywood where he tries to find the man, Rusty Jacobs, responsible for embezzling $1,000,000 from his client, and then bring back the dough. Swann finds Jacobs, but the mercurial wannabe film producer is involved in a “surefire” movie project aimed at the growing Christian market. And the money? Well, it seems to have vanished into thin air.

At the same time, thanks to his irrepressible partner, Goldblatt, Swann finds himself knee-deep in the New York City art world, as he tries to get justice for another client who’s possibly been defrauded on the purchase of a valuable painting that may or may not be a fake.

As if this isn’t enough to keep him busy, in the midst of these two troubling cases, Swann finds that the teenage son whom he hasn’t seen in a dozen years has run away from his grandparent’s Minnesota home and, chasing after a girl, has possibly become involved with a cult. And so, a guilt-ridden Swann has to take time out from his paying cases to find his son.

Swann’s Down: Henry Swann Mystery
Book Five by Charles Salzberg

When Henry Swann is asked by his quirky partner, Goldblatt, to find a missing psychic who’s swindled his ex-wife out of a small fortune, he just can’t say no. Although he doesn’t actually expect to get paid, he figures it might give him a chance to finally learn more about his partner’s mysterious past. His search takes him into the controversial, arcane world of psychics, fortunetellers, and charlatans, while raising questions in his own mind about whether or not there is an after-life.

While working his partner’s case, he’s approached by a former employer, attorney Paul Rudder, to track down a missing witness who might be able to provide an alibi for his client, Nicky Diamond, a notorious mob hitman who’s scheduled to go on trial in a week for murder he claims he didn’t commit. Swann’s search for the missing witness, who happens to be the defendant’s girlfriend, takes him from Brooklyn to a small beach town across the bay from Mobile, Alabama. But what does she really know and will she even come back with him to testify for her boyfriend?

Praise for SWANN’S DOWN:

“From Manhattan to Coney Island to the steamy shores of Alabama, Charles Salzberg delivers a top-flight mystery with his latest Henry Swann outing. Highly recommended.” –Tom Straw, New York Times bestselling author as Richard Castle

“Psychics, double-crosses, missing persons–Charles Salzberg’s latest Henry Swann book has it all. Swann’s Down is a gritty, no-frills PI novel that brings to mind greats like Reed Farrel Coleman’s Moe Prager and Michael Harvey’s Michael Kelly. Whether this is your first Swann adventure or the latest, you won’t want to miss the brass-knuckle punch that is Swann’s Down. Trust me.” –Alex Segura, author of Blackout and Dangerous Ends

“Swann’s Down gives readers two intriguing mysteries for the price of one, as skip tracer Henry Swann pursues a woman who might alibi a murderer and a psychic who swindled the ex-wife of Swann’s partner. Swann’s wry wit, quotes from authors and philosophers, genius for questioning suspects, and dark past make him a character readers will follow anywhere as he seeks his quarry. This is another thrilling addition to this excellent series.” –Rich Zahradnik, Shamus Award-winning author of Lights Out Summer

“Henry Swann dives in where others fear to tread in Swann’s Down. Fast. Funny. And smart. This time out, Swann crosses paths with a psycho hitman, a phony psychic and Swann’s mysterious partner, a disbarred lawyer. Who could ask for more? I hope we’ll see a lot more of Swann in the future and that this isn’t Swann’s swan song.” –Paul D. Marks, Shamus Award-winning author of White Heat and Broken Windows

Final Book In The Henry Swann Mystery
Series by Charles Salzberg Coming Later in 2019

*************************

Devil In the Hole (stand-alone) by Charles Salzberg

In the ballroom of a sparsely furnished Connecticut mansion, police find a shocking sight: four bodies lined up next to each other, three teenagers and a middle-aged woman, each lying on a blanket, each shot once in the head. In an upstairs bedroom: an elderly woman and the family dog, both of them shot as well. The only person missing is the husband, father, son, and prime suspect, John Hartman, who’s got a three-week jump on the police.

Through the eyes of almost two dozen characters, including the neighbor who reports the crime, Hartman’s mistress, a dogged state investigator, the family minister, and some of the characters Hartman meets on his escape route, we piece together not only what happened and how these shocking murders affect the community, but how John Hartman evades capture, where he’s headed, and maybe even why he committed this gruesome crime in the first place.

Based on the notorious John List murders and already compared to works by Norman Mailer and Russell Banks, DEVIL IN THE HOLE is gripping, literate, and haunting.

Praise for DEVIL IN THE HOLE …

“DEVIL IN THE HOLE is powerful stuff. Drawing on real events, Salzberg has crafted a mesmerizing tale in many voices. He masterfully drip-feeds the compelling story, funneling moments from disparate, scattered lives to define the personality of a madman. The overall effect is like slowly opening a beautifully wrapped box of poisoned chocolates.” — Tim McLoughlin, editor Brooklyn Noir.

“Salzberg masterfully weaves together dozens of voices, including the killer’s, in an effort to find out why a man would murder his entire family and then disappear. DEVIL IN THE HOLE is a haunting meditation on the thin, wavering line between sense and senselessness.” — Kaylie Jones, author Lies My Mother Never Told Me: A Memoir, and Speak Now

“The devil isn’t in the details, but in a tony Connecticut town. Charles Salzberg’s DEVIL IN THE HOLE is a fine piece of crime writing and a hell of a fun read.” — Reed Farrel Coleman, three-time Shamus Award-winning author of Gun Church

In this smartly constructed crime novel, Salzberg uses multiple viewpoints to portray an unlikely killer who methodically slaughters his family … an intriguing collage of impressions and personal perspectives for the reader to ponder. — Publishers Weekly

“Salzberg does an ingenious job of weaving together the various voices — each distinct in its own right — and giving us the story as told by the people who experienced it. It paints a psychological picture of a murderer, while also telling the story of those left in the aftermath and how they were affected as well. Brilliant and captivating storytelling.” — Erica Ruth Neubauer, Crimespree magazine

“Salzberg has taken a true crime tale and made it into a compelling work of fiction that attempts to imagine the mind of a killer, not only through his own mind, but through the minds of many others. This is a novel which few readers will want to put down, turning pages mostly, I think, to find out how in the world the author pulls it off. ‘How,’ I kept asking myself, ‘how can he finish this story?’ The buildup becomes more and more absorbing because Charles Salzberg has a lot to say about human nature that is thought-provokingly wise and penetrating.” — Duff Brenna, South Carolina Review

“I am typically not a fan of books written in this manner but Salzberg masterfully uses this technique to create a novel that is different in an extremely good way. The author effortlessly blends the different perspectives, viewpoints, and impressions of each character into a brilliant tapestry that envelops the reader, while peaking interest and the desire for more information about the crime. DEVIL IN THE HOLE is one of the best books that I have read this year and I most highly recommend it.” — Robin Thomas, New Mystery Review

Retribution Book 1: Seeds Of Revenge by David Harvey

Hout Bay and Camps Bay, two suburbs along the beautiful Atlantic seaboard next to Cape Town, South Africa, become the setting of 3 childhood friends, now adults who, relocating from America thanks a dual American and South African heritage, establish their long-cherished dream business in Hout Bay, a short distance away from Camps Bay.

With ready cash from early investments in Bitcoin they pay for their business, their cars, houses and lifestyle up front, in full, using their profits. This in turn unwittingly attracts the attention of a family kicked out of Columbia by authorities cleaning up the drug trade. They re-establish themselves in Camps Bay, taking aim at the growing heroin trade in the Western Cape.

The Columbians believe the Hout Bay business is a front for drugs and therefore competition and an initial low-scale approach to establish their version of the truth escalates when abalone poaching is thrown into the mix.

Sucked into something totally at odds with their world, the Hout Bay dream is threatened by the Camps Bay drug and abalone world.

Because the Colombians have their own dream – a world of drugs, violence and now abalone poaching. They don’t care who gets hurt or what it involves to grow their empire. After all, they’ve been doing it for a long time and no-one is going to stop them.

Retribution Book 2: Winter Revenge by Dave Harvey

“Revenge is a dish best served cold”

Cesar Quevedo aches for revenge, but can’t wait. The Cape Town winter rains are starting, when heads will be down and buried under umbrellas. That will be the time he’ll be looking to strike.

Dimitri Alfieri is also wanting revenge, but he understands the value of waiting. In the meantime he keeps digging away to unearth the Hout Bay secrets despite being warned off.

Drug money is missing and Guido Alfieri sends two psychopathic killers with their reputation for unspeakable brutality from Bogota to Cape Town to find it, prompting an unlikely alliance.

Needing fresh abalone suppliers, Cesar Quevedo meets Melissa Samuels, a key player in the game and surprises himself when he succumbs to her charms. But who exactly is she? Abalone poaching is not the game where you want to be following your heart.

While the Camps Bay drug and abalone poaching empire spend their time plotting and scheming, the Hout Bay team show that actions speak louder than words and carry out an ambush with military precision against Dimitri Alfieri.

He learns a painful, expensive lesson that leaves him in hospital with a huge question mark. How would anyone know where he would be at a specific time and what he would be carrying in the boot of his car?

Did it originate from Hout Bay? Could it really be the mysterious Chinese triad with their cryptic messages who seem to know all about them? Or is there an unknown new player trying to muscle in on their world?

It’s an elaborate but deadly game of chess, where the stakes are high and the longer the game goes on, the more dangerous it becomes.

“He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious.”

About The Author: Dave Harvey was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1951.

He spent his early years in Linbro Park, a suburb of Johannesburg, on a small holding of peach trees, asparagus and rhubarb, exploring the long disused next-door cemetery, avoiding snakes and his grandpa’s beady eyes. (and they were eyes that missed nothing).

From there the family relocated to a farm in Chingola, Northern Rhodesia (later Zambia). Given the farm was carved out of virgin forest, it was back to avoiding snakes and other denizens of the thick bush – but all good learning curves.

From Zambia the family relocated to Rhodesia (later Zimbabwe) and from there Dave attended university in South Africa.

Somehow it seemed that all of his school years were spent at isolated boarding schools, buried deep in the bush in both Northern Rhodesia and Rhodesia, which may account for a lot of his admitted quirks.

After the bush war, when Rhodesia became Zimbabwe, he emigrated back to South Africa where he now lives in Cape Town.

The Story Of Jess and Aver: Giving Love A Chance by K. A. Neeson

How many people break up with their boyfriend, not talk for three months, then wake up one day and marry them right off the bat before they officially get back together again? Yes, that’s right. Married. Hell, I know it sounds crazy, but the conventional way (getting back together to work things out first) doesn’t usually work; we’ve seen that fail too many times. As nonsensical as it sounds, it could actually work…

Within a short time, frame, I experienced love, loss, reconciliation, and heartbreak. This is the story of my revelation, how I almost single-handedly destroyed the best thing that had ever befallen me, and the incidents and events that followed. My name is Aver, and this is my story.

Alan Joshua’s Books

The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy:
(The Mind of Stefan Dürr, The Cosmic Ape,
The Interdimensional Nexus) by Alan Joshua

The saga of Beau Walker. More than a scientist, more than the offspring of a Mohawk–African American interracial marriage–and far more than human, Walker unknowingly holds the key to human evolution…and its obliteration.

Walker, is a disgraced researcher, snatched by the government and coerced to join a U.S./Russian multidisciplinary scientific team, searching for the cause of a Russian disaster related to covert U.S. mind and biowarfare.

Beginning with a terrifying descent into a Russian crater where physical laws don’t apply, he’s thrown into a world of advanced biotechnology, biowarfare, paranormal research, and military intrigue.

The stakes are unimaginable: Find and control the cause of the events or face human extinction.

Cold Coffee Review: From the very first paragraph, I was hooked on this prize-winning, sci-fi, paranormal adventure. If you are not afraid of the unknown and are willing to become part of this suspenseful page-turner, I strongly recommend this book.

Alan Joshua begins The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy in the basement of a Russian brain research institute. If you’ve ever wondered if humans are being used in mind control experiments hidden in the underbelly of governments as scientific research, this realistic, fictional account will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck and pulse pound. Full of astonishing detail, it reads like a handbook for psychic development: “Stefan Dürr’s wiry frame hovered in a transparent, liquid-filled, vertical sensory deprivation tank. Naked, with the exception of a soft weight belt, straps battened down a round, silver helmet covering his head and shoulders. When he exhaled, a plastic umbilical line at the top released a stream of bubbles that crept through the viscous solution toward the surface.”

In a time where understanding and controlling horrific catastrophes, far beyond the threat of climate change around the world, researchers conclude that the evolution of human consciousness might be our only salvation. For those of you who have seen or read Chayefsky’s Altered States, this is similar but Altered States on speed, reaching far beyond.

This is great storytelling and is striking in its visualizations. It is filled with dialog that will hold your interest as well as believable characters, like disgraced research professor Dr. Beau Walker. For example, in Philadelphia, Walker resigns himself to a weekend of scoring his students’ booklets on basic psychology. But the weekend is not what he imagined. As he naps, the Russian city of Podol’sk is inexplicably vaporized in deadly silence. Unaware of his paranormal bond with the event, Walker “clawed at the sweat-saturated shirt, now tinged pink with oozing blood, rolling his head back and forth on a damp pillow.” What is this puzzling link with event 5,000 miles away?

Walker’s nightmares continue when he is snatched by the government and coerced to join a U.S./Russian multidisciplinary scientific team, searching for the cause of the disasters. Their descent into a Russian crater will have you on the edge of your seat.

This trilogy is for any sci-fi, paranormal, or action-adventure fan. Certainly, worthy of a movie, it is full of surprises and twists and turns. I urge you to step into a story where science, the paranormal and human consciousness meet with unexpected and devastating results. Be prepared for the “after sense” as I call it, the lingering thoughts after you close the book. I recommend that you buy this combined version of the trilogy.

The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy is not limited only to sci-fi fans. It is for thinking people seeking stories of some complexity that can be intriguing and mentally stimulating. If you love science fiction and are tired of the lack of imagination found in many books and movies today, this psychological thriller should be your next read.

The Mind of Stefan Dürr: The SHIVA Syndrome
Trilogy (Volume 1) by Alan Joshua

A mind research experiment studying human consciousness goes horrifyingly wrong.

Thousands are killed when a Russian suburb is mysteriously destroyed, leaving a mile-deep crater in its place. At the same time, a U.S. space shuttle vaporizes in orbit, and a Canadian mountaintop is ripped away.

One thing lies behind it all: The mind of Stefan Dürr. Existence is dreary hell for Dr. Beau Walker. An embittered loner, he sleepwalks through life until the government virtually kidnaps him, hurling him into an incredibly menacing adventure beyond his wildest imaginings. Coerced into joining a U.S./Russian scientific team, Beau searches for the cause of the disasters.

Beginning with a treacherous, life-threatening exploration of the anomalous crater, where scientific laws don’t seem to apply, he’s thrown into a world of unimaginable advanced biotechnology, biowarfare, genetics, paranormal research, and military intrigue.

The stakes are inconceivably high: Find and control the cause…or face worldwide annihilation.

“A Thrilling Read” New Consciousness Review “Having the right amount of adventure and romance, this crisscrossing genre tale isn’t just a good read, but may also look great on a big screen.”

Portland Book Review: “The book mixes uncommon palettes and manages a masterpiece with it. It is a surprising, suspenseful, and utterly superb read from start to end.”

Self-Publishing Review: “highly recommended, indeed; especially for thriller and sci-fi readers who have become deluged with too much predictability and who seek cutting-edge action, believable protagonists, and action that is solidly intense throughout.”

Midwest Book Review: “Deft dialogue, crisp plotting, and a likable central figure make this multidisciplinary scientific adventure an exuberant and involving read.” Kirkus Review

The Cosmic Ape: The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy (Book 2) by Alan Joshua

Beau Walker and the research team are not aware that the dangers at the SHIVA complex are more complicated, more deadly than those left behind in Russia. They are astonished when they witness how SHIVA intensifies the destructive power of mind on matter in a demonstration. However, they have no idea of the vast distance the mind effects can cover. Adina Gerardo, the main SHIVA subject who demonstrates its effects, is the mother of Emidio and Ana.

They are gifted with amazing and lethal paranormal abilities. Beau soon learns that mysteries surrounding Gerardo and her traumatic past intertwine with his unrelenting investigation of Stefan Dürr. Adina is far more menacing than the gentle soul she appears to be. Before long, Beau is ensnared in a treacherous, unpredictable, web of military deceit and intrigues… leading to treachery that forces him to face a terrifying threat.

The Interdimensional Nexus: The SHIVA Syndrome
Trilogy (Book 3) by Alan Joshua

With the genetically enhanced super soldier’s murderous attack on Beau Walker, the research team’s fear rises to a critical level.

A postmortem verifies his physical and DNA alterations. But a life-threatening surprise is buried deep within his brain. Walker and the team must escape from the SHIVA complex with the biowarfare evidence. If they are to end the project, someone must enter the deadly Caduceus laboratory—safeguarded by nuclear self-destruct devices—to steal samples.

Adina Gerardo unexplainably disappears during their escape attempt. Using their powerful and deadly paranormal gifts, only her children, Emidio and Ana, can lead the team to her and protect them from their military hunters. The youngsters guide the team towards a prophesied encounter with the unknown and the boy’s certain death.

In a terrifying journey with a mysterious shaman, Beau crosses the threshold between physical reality and those lying beyond his senses, finally understanding the minds of Stefan Dürr and Adina Gerardo. Adina opens a portal to an interdimensional nexus, leaving the team and their pursuers awed and overcome with wondrous sights and an astonishing, otherworldly confrontation.

*************************

About The Author: A native Philadelphian, Alan Joshua (pen name) is a Clinical Psychologist with a background in Forensic Psychology and Parapsychology.

Joshua has published many nonfiction journal articles.

The Shiva syndrome, his debut fiction novel, is a science fiction/paranormal mystery and thriller.

Always curious about the unknowns of human experience, he is fascinated with creativity and paranormal abilities. This led to his involvement with Psychology and research into Parapsychology while attending Temple and Saybrook Universities.

He has explored paranormal abilities, including alleged reincarnation, using hypnosis and in-depth interviewing of a wide range of “psychic” practitioners. Among his prized possessions are a shriveled, mummified banana (a product of one healer’s bio psychokinesis) and a small Austrian teaspoon curled by a German “psychic” healer while six people sat around him to observe. https://alanjoshua.com/biopsychokinesis

Joshua believes that what looks “paranormal” is a bias given by those in “ordinary” consciousness. Further, he claims that the so-called paranormal is an extension of human consciousness common to all humans and has had evolutionary value in the past and the potential to shape humanity’s future.

The Shiva Syndrome incorporates his knowledge of Parapsychology and experiences with healers, intuitives, “psychic” sensitives, etc.

Unsurprisingly, he is a science fiction fan and has been influenced by such writers as Asimov, Bradbury, Crichton, Heinlein, Serling, and the extraordinary genius of Phillip Dick.

As an avid Star Trek fan, he is fond of contradicting Gene Roddenberry, believing that human consciousness and its potentials are “the final frontier.”

If you have questions for the author, he would be glad to answer them–time permitting. He would like to hear from you if you’ve had any paranormal experiences. Please contact him through his website listed below.

Apollo’s Raven (Curse of Clansmen and Kings Book 1) by Linnea Tanner

A Celtic warrior princess is torn between her forbidden love for the enemy and duty to her people.

AWARD-WINNING APOLLO’S RAVEN sweeps you into an epic Celtic tale of forbidden love, mythological adventure, and political intrigue in Ancient Rome and Britannia. In 24 AD British kings hand-picked by Rome to rule are fighting each other for power. King Amren’s former queen, a powerful Druid, has cast a curse that Blood Wolf and the Raven will rise and destroy him. The king’s daughter, Catrin, learns to her dismay that she is the Raven and her banished half-brother is Blood Wolf. Trained as a warrior, Catrin must find a way to break the curse, but she is torn between her forbidden love for her father’s enemy, Marcellus, and loyalty to her people. She must summon the magic of the Ancient Druids to alter the dark prophecy that threatens the fates of everyone in her kingdom.

Will Catrin overcome and eradicate the ancient curse. Will she be able to embrace her forbidden love for Marcellus? Will she cease the war between Blood Wolf and King Amren and save her kingdom?

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Interesting story. Travel back to a time in 24 AD where strong Celtic women find themselves influencing Clansmen, Kings and Queens. This ancient time is set in Rome and on the Southeast Coast of Britannia where fantasy, mythology, medieval practices, politics, religion, Celtic culture, the Roman Empire, and forbidden romance bring about this fictional tale tailored by well researched history, archaeological evidence supported with a cast of fictional and non-fictional characters artfully woven in by skilled writer Linnea Tanner.

The story begins with Princess Catrin, her horse and her raven spirit guide observing ships, possible war ships in the distance. Advice from her father “know your enemies better than your friends” along with her spirit guide and ancient powers will help Catrin through the perils that await.

I invite you into this epic tale where “Alone in Mor’s candlelit bedchamber, Catrin shifted restlessly under her blankets. Not having to share the bed with her sister, because Mor was gone most of the night with Belinus, she thought slumber would come easy. Yet an ominous fire lingered inside her and foreboding thoughts crackled through her mind about what her father had said at the familymeeting during the festivities. When he announced that Mor must be prepared to wed Cunobelin’s son after he renegotiated a matrimonial agreement, she wilted like a flower denied water. The burden of keeping Mor’s secret about Belinus weighed heavily on Catrin’s conscience. If Cunobelin found out, it could unravel the tenuous negotiations for peace between the powerful tribal kingdoms.
More troubling, her father instructed her on ways she could beguile Marcellus into revealing Roman’s schemes for their kingdom. Her stomach tossed with conflicting emotions about the striking Roman. How could she carry out her father’s directive when this young man made her heart race every time he gazed at her?”

Apollo’s Raven is a fast-paced, intriguing story with characters, situations and mystical threads sparked my interest and kept me turning the page of this award-winning book. I pre-ordered Dagger’s Destiny (Curse of Clansmen and Kings-Book 2) so I will not miss a thing as the story continues. I purchased Apollo’s Raven from Kindle and this review was completed on August 20, 2018.

Dagger’s Destiny (Curse of Clansmen and Kings Book 2)
by Linnea Tanner

A Celtic warrior princess accused of treason for aiding her enemy lover must win back her father’s love and trust.

In the rich and vibrant tale, Author Linnea Tanner continues the story of Catrin and Marcellus that began with the awarding-winning novel APOLLO’S RAVEN in the Curse of Clansmen and Kings Series. Book 2: DAGGER’S DESTINY sweeps you into an epic tale of forbidden love, mythological adventure, and political intrigue in Ancient Rome and Britannia.

War looms over 24 AD Britannia where rival tribal rulers fight each other for power and the Romans threaten to invade to settle their political differences. King Amren accuses his daughter, Catrin, of treason for aiding the Roman enemy and her lover, Marcellus. The ultimate punishment is death unless she can redeem herself. She must prove loyalty to her father by forsaking Marcellus and defending their kingdom–even to the death. Forged into a warrior, she must overcome tribulations and make the right decisions on her quest to break the curse that foretells her banished half-brother and the Roman Empire will destroy their kingdom.

Yet, when Catrin again reunites with Marcellus, she is torn between her love for him and duty to King Amren. She must ultimately face her greatest challenger who could destroy her life, freedom, and humanity.

Will Catrin finally break the ancient prophecy that looms over her kingdom? Will she abandon her forbidden love for Marcellus to win back her father’s trust and love? Can King Amren balance his brutality to maintain power with the love he feels for Catrin?

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: I invite you to continue this epic tale as Dagger’s Destiny takes up where Apollo’s Raven left off. It is July AD in Southeast Britannia and main character Princess Catrin kneels by her father’s bloody and bruised body reassured that the King is still alive.

Fast moving drama with the characters, you came to love or hate in Apollo’s Raven finds Princess Catrin torn between loyalty to Marcellus and her father. “How could Catrin continue living if her heart was split between Marcellus and her father? Losing Vala was the fatal wound in her already bleeding heart. She trembled, recounting her father’s words. Would you bet your own life on the gamble that Marcellus will release Vala?

Catrin’s love for Marcellus and his failure to release Vala had condemned her as a traitor in her father’s eyes. She looked around the stark receiving chamber and stared at the skulls looking down on her in judgment. She remembered the dark tale that her father had told her when she was a child.

A mermaid, who had saved a sailor from a shipwreck, swam to shore, cradling his head above the water. Though she desperately wanted to stay with the sailor, she realized she was a sea creature and would die on land. Heartbroken, she stabbed herself in the breast with a knife and turned the water red with her blood. Grief-stricken, she floated on the waves until her body dissolved into its foam. As the sun’s rays radiated on the cold foam, delicate fairies sparkled over its surface.”

A test of loyalty that no daughter, father or romantic suitor would want to engage in. Find out what happens as this story continues from book one and prepares the reader for book 3 in this Celtic Tale. Like me, you will keep you turning the page as author Linnea Tanner skillfully weaves fantasy, romance, mythology, history, and the clash of Celtic culture and the Roman Empire into the Curse Of The Clansmen and Kings series.

I purchased Dagger’s Destiny Apollo’s Raven and Dagger’s Destiny from Kindle and like you, I wait for promised “Amulet’s Rapture (Book 3) by Linnea Tanner. This review was completed on October 1, 2018.

About Ben Schneider The Author:  Ben Schneider was born in Oklahoma. In 2003, he earned a B.A. in Graphic Design at Oklahoma University, married his fiancée, and joined the Air Force. Ben and his wife, Suzy, have been stationed in Italy, Okinawa, and Alaska. Aside from writing fiction, Ben’s other interests include drawing cartoons–primarily his Airman Artless comic strips. Chrome Mountain is his debut novel.

About The Artist: Ben Schneider was born in Oklahoma City, OK in 1977.  He graduated from Newcastle High School in 1996 and earned his Associates in General Studies at Hillsdale FWB College in 1999.  While at Hillsdale he created Holidabblers, only then, he called it “Holiday Heroes” until another artist bought the copyrights to that title years later.  During the late 90s Ben drew his cartoons in colored pencil.  In fall of 1999 he transferred to the University of Oklahoma and later had cartoons published in “The Oklahoma Daily” (as shown at the bottom of the “Holidabblers” tab).  Since then Ben revolutionized his work, making it mostly computer-based by using Photoshop and Freehand.

Ben earned his Bachelors of Art in Graphic Design in May of 2003.  He joined the US Air Force the following month and received his first assignment in Aviano, Italy.  Ben’s experiences in the Air Force inspired him to invent Airman Artless.  In July of 2005 he had his first Airman Artless cartoon published.  He has been published repeatedly in the “Vigileer,” “Air Scoop,” “Kaiserslautern American,” “Samurai Gate,” and “Crimson Sky.”  One sample of each can be found on the “Published Work” tab.  The “Crimson Sky” sample also includes a story about Ben on page 18.  Ben welcomes any ideas for future Airman Artless cartoons.  Feel free to send an idea, question, comment or offer anytime to either of the following:

Karma In Action: Finding Meaning, Making Choices
by Constance Vincent

The Western world has a mistaken notion of karma’s true nature. Karma is generally thought of as a religious term, signifying reward or judgment for a person’s deeds. But this isn’t the case.

As author Constance L. Vincent, PhD, explains, karma is a tool we can all use to create positive change in our lives—because life reflects our thoughts and energy.

Using examples from personal experiences, Vincent clearly explains the twelve laws of karma and the different ways karma manifests in our lives. You’ll learn how karma can help you overcome obstacles, anticipate the future, and link unlikely but serendipitous events together for your own benefit. You’ll discover how individual responsibility relates to karmic outcomes. Life doesn’t happen to you—you make life happen.

In addition, you’ll learn about Vincent; her husband, Ed; and how their use of karma underlies their marriage. From the recurring motif of glass that paralleled events in Vincent’s early life to how Ed used the law of responsibility to overcome lung cancer, you’ll find practical, relatable examples of karma as a tool for action.

Learn how to use your karma. Your life will never be the same.

Reviews: Told through a fascinating series of life-experience anecdotes by psychologist Constance L Vincent Ph. D., Karma In Action (Finding Meaning, Making Choices) is an expertly researched and masterfully explained book detailing the twelve laws of Karma. The concept of Karma – the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences – comes to us from Buddhist teachings, but the overriding principle is paraphrased in many of today’s religions (e.g. Christianity’s golden rule).

In Dr. Vincent’s words: “Karma is not only about unraveling the past to find clues that explain the present or future. No one has to wait until old age to become enlightened.” And it is on this basis that she takes us through many of the life lessons she has learned over time and relayed them back to one of the corresponding twelve laws. There is something to be learned by every reader in Dr. Vincent’s teachings – whether religious or agnostic – as she cleverly links together the spiritual aspects of karma with a solid basis in psychological theory, thereby helping us to fully understand the cause and effect of one’s decision making.

A cynic may conclude that it would take an extremely brave – or foolhardy – reviewer to rate a book on karma anything less than five stars, though I would be the exception to that rule. I fall squarely on the agnostic side of the ledger when it comes to matters of spirituality, and have been called far worse than foolhardy. That being said, I found Dr. Vincent’s Karma In Action a fascinating read and well worthy of a five star rating.  Reviewed by Neil A White for Readers’ Favorite

Dr. Constance Vincent has done a spectacular job applying the twelve laws of karma to a wide range of personal experiences and fascinating stories. Her book is short, well-written and profound. In my teaching as a university professor l’ve often brought up the subject of karma without knowing much about it. At the outset, Professor Vincent defines karma very clearly and differentiates it from matters of luck and coincidence. She then presents the twelve laws of karma rooted in philosophical thought, current scientific research, and universal religious truths.

Dr. Vincent’s approach is truly unique. Instead of staying on an abstract academic level, she continually provides pearls of wisdom from monks, farmers, poets, artists and gurus. Her book is loaded with brilliant quotations and passages. Her reference to pertinent books and authors is a treasure. I read Karma in Action on a sunny afternoon. I couldn’t put it down. Treat yourself. This book is a winner! Reviewed by Michael Rustigan

Jesus’s Brother James by Timothy Reinhardt

Life can be challenging and overwhelming.

After finding his wife in bed with another man, Mike meets the mysterious Father Coady, who promptly shoots him in the head (accidentally). When Mike wakes up in the hospital, he’s introduced to Jesus’s little-known brother, James, who is a poor stand-in for the Divine.

Meanwhile, Amber, a work-obsessed businesswoman, also encounters the mysterious Father Coady and begins to fall in love with him, to the chagrin of her ever-urbane boyfriend, Paul.

Fate seems to pull these four people together through their hilarious struggles to find meaning in a chaotic world.

Afaq: I’m Trapped In India by Timothy Reinhardt

Sid Lund just woke up from a convoluted nightmare to discover his waking life is even more complicated. For one thing, the young American pharmaceutical executive has no memory of how he wound up in a remote Indian hospital. No one knows him, except for fellow patient Afaq, who seems to be insane. On the plus side, his nurse, Pretti Dey, can only be described as gorgeous.

When an anonymous phone call warns Sid to get out of the country, he discovers the police are after him. Without any idea of how he became a fugitive, Sid has no choice but to go along with Afaq’s nutty plan to secure him a passport and plane tickets—a plan that leads Sid and Afaq on a comically crazed trip to Mumbai, with Pretti in tow.

Sid’s not sure what he did or even if he did it. He’s only certain of three things. He doesn’t want to get arrested, he wants to spend more time with Pretti, and Afaq is the craziest man he’s ever met.

A lighthearted comedy about one man’s search to find himself—or at least regain his memory—Afaq: I’m Trapped in India is Timothy Reinhardt’s madcap debut novel.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Book Review: Here it is: Only readers with a sense of humor should read this theatrical comedy.

Allow yourself to get wrapped up in character Sid Lund’s nightmare when the rickshaw taxi ride through the crazy crowded streets of India starts an adventure this American businessman was not prepared for.

“The sound of sirens echoing against the side of the building woke Sid from his deep slumber. As Sid gingerly raised his head from his pillow, he heard the loud buzz of vibration from his cell phone rattling against the thin, cheap metal bedside table. He looked about the room. Timeworn furniture, chipped paint peeling from the walls and a broken chair decorated his hospital room. A strange smell hung in the air, which seemed to be a mixture of mildew and body odor. Several large insects buzzed in the sunlight as they circled above a pile of debris in the corner.”

Join the mystery to unravel what “Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey” and “If you run at the monkey” means. Try not to let Afaq (Ah-f-u-c-k) drive you completely insane or nurse Pretti give you a sponge bath.

Author Timothy Reinhardt sets the stage in such a way that the reader experiences the cultural differences between U.S. and India with humor that parallels the best Hollywood comedies.

Search the pages for how this reviewer’s strawberry eating male cat named Wolf living in North Carolina, America can possibly discover a link in his feline lineage in India?

I always quote a passage in my reviews to show you the author’s writing style, so I quote from page 149 in my copy of Afaq: I’m Trapped In India.

“As though he were a moth moving from the dark to a bright bulb, Sid started toward the liquor store. He was driven by the desire to forget the troubles he just discovered. The alcohol could wash away the sting of this recovered memory. Then Sid realized he had no money. He ran his hand through his pant pockets, but there were no rupees there. He plopped down to sit on the warm black pavement near a small bush.

From his secluded position in the corner of the parking lot, Sid listened to the constant barrage of sounds emanating from the city. It was a chorus of car horns, revving engines, and the clang of vibrating metal as all types of vehicles navigated large potholes. Everyone headed somewhere. Everyone had a purpose. Everyone had something to do except Sid. Like a dry leaf on a stream, Sid was at the mercy of a current outside of his control.”

I endorse Afaq: I’m Trapped In India by Timothy Reinhardt as an hysterical comedy that should be played out on the silver screen. We reviewed this book from a Kindle/PDF format and the review was completed on September 13, 2015.

Mad Mischief by Angela Shearer

Mad Mischief is a throng of short stories born in dark corners and on misty roads. They bring to life the obscure and breathe life into those things that hide away, in the crawlspace, beneath the house. At the witching hour, they whisper to us and tug at our toes when we stand too close to the edge. Short stories are our paramours in literature, our senseless lovers that we flirt and dance with in shameless moments. They make all things possible, turning the world inside out, as they drive us beyond boredom and logic. Like concubines, they require no commitment and they take us to those shady and derelict places that we are too afraid to go to on our own. They delight and mystify us with their madness, holding us in their fleeting embrace just long enough to keep us wanting more.

Relevant by Angela Shearer

People are feral creatures who sometimes leave human footprints.  Our magic lies in the wildness that remains between our domestication and our instinct. The world changes daily around us and the only way for us to keep up with it is to make sure we remain RELEVANT.

Relevance means having more than a few options.  We need to know how to reinvent ourselves each time its required and it’s about keeping ourselves current with constant learning so that we can remain financially and psychologically independent in a demanding and competitive world.  RELEVANT contains the blueprint for disabling fear, beating our doubts and finding what our greatest desires and passions are so that we can pursue them. It provides us with the approval that we need to go out into the world and be strong.  All of us deserve to live a full and wholesome life of our own making and RELEVANT guides us to our own greatness.

Being relevant takes time, practice, energy, observation, thought and action.  It is the ultimate journey towards self-mastery.  Everybody wins.

Book Of Menace by Angela Shearer

Turmoil bubbles up through the cracks of the Underwood as long forgotten travesties stir, seeking redemption.

The newly awakened power of an Innocent has sent tremors through Goblin Park and dark places beyond, nudging awake creatures and beasts that would be best left asleep. Guilt awakens in those who misused their magic and circumstance forces them back onto a path they were trying to forget. They must dig up what they had buried and help the Innocent navigate a treacherous world of trickery and menace to find their absolution.

The Innocent must overcome her own limitations and be old beyond her years to save her own life and the legends that make Goblin Park and the Underwood worth saving. The Gypsy Winds blow, pulling those together again who must guide and teach the Innocent everything she must know to succeed.

She must pilot her way through places like the Muddle, Watergate Wasteland and the Castle of Mirrors where things are never as they seem. In leaps and bounds she must make new unlikely friends at places like Mildew Manor and the Valley of Clay, for within the confines of those wicked places, where she faces death, she will find the answers that she needs to undo what the generation before could not fix.

About A. R. Grosjean

Author of Mother of the Dragons, Peterson Estate series (Birth of the Witch, A New Beginning, and more coming soon), Spawn of the Curse, and coming soon Cursed Blood: Bloodline Curse. I also wrote Stolen Identity under my full name Amber Rigby Grosjean.

When she was young, she was bullied and teased. It was so bad that she even tried to end her life, when she was 10 years old. It didn’t work, but at the age of 11, she discovered writing and it changed her life forever. It helped her escape from the pain. Suffering from depression and anxiety, she needed an outlet.

When I met her husband, he taught her to be a better person. Even though she still suffered from depression and anxiety, she didn’t need writing to escape. Now she simply writes to bring a little brightness in someone else’s life.

It took 20 years to publish her first book. She never gave up even though people told her, she wouldn’t succeed. She adopted the phrase, “dreams really do come true”, because it is very true. If you have a dream, don’t give up on it.

Anxiety Workbook: Healing Each Day by Theodocia McLean

30 Day Workbook: From The Author Of Mental Health Workbook: A Must Have Communication Tool

Each time you recover from an anxiety (panic attack), you are a survivor. You Won!

Anxiety is a part of life, but serious, uncontrolled anxiety will rob you of quality of life.

The first idea that you must internalize, you are not alone. Thousands, even billions of people around the world suffer from mild to acute anxiety. Knowing that you are not alone, should be a mild comfort and perhaps there are groups in your area where you can join, find local resources, and help others along the way.

Thank you for reading and accepting this workbook as a tool for healing each day. I recommend that you buy a new workbook every year to continue the progress that you are making. I give you lots of room to write in this journal/workbook.

Cat Diary For Cat Lovers (In The Event Of Accident Or My Death) by Theodocia McLean

Dear Cat Lover,

I could never imagine (not would I want to) my life without a cat. Even as a child, I had a cat and some years a cat and a dog for pets.

The idea for this Cat Diary stems back twenty-five plus years. Circumstances beyond my control was forcing me not only to move to another state, but I couldn’t have a cat where I was going.

My pressing task was to find a new home for my beloved male cat named Greybow. I bought a notebook and begun writing everything I knew about Greybow’s likes, dislikes, medical history (as he had lost one leg due to an accident), and everything that made him special. Next, I put an ad in the local newspaper. A day passed before a local college student called and asked if she could visit Greybow. She came over to the house and immediately wanted Greybow. She moved here to attend college and she was homesick for her family and lonely. She had an apartment that allowed cats and so she decided she needed a furry friend. Before we moved ahead with the exchange, I asked her to take the notebook home and study it before she made the final decision. She called in a couple of day and asked if she could adopt my Greybow. She said she had read his diary and was convinced he would be the perfect companion for her. I say my goodbye and watched her drive away with my precious Greybow. Before she left, I gave her my new address and asked her to write, so I would know that Greybow was settling in well. A couple of months later, I received a long letter stating how wonderful Greybow had settled in. She said she was no longer lonely as he was her shadow and stayed close while she studied long hours. In my heart I knew that the diary had played a huge role in guaranteeing the successful transition for both her and Greybow.

These many years later, I created this workbook to help you and your precious furry friend(s) find a new home. You might find your situation mirrors mine so long ago. Perhaps illness has driven you to this decision or a family member has died and his or her cat needs a new home.

I would never wish on you the agony of needing to place your furry family member in a new home, but if it needs to be, I hope this workbook brings you comfort and the new owner much needed information to make the transition seamless.

It is now 2018 and my shadow is named Wolf. He was a shelter cat, adopted before six month and returned to the shelter. When I found him in 2011, he was in a large room of cats, curled up all lone on a corner piece of carpet. I picked him up, turned him over, and held him close to my chest like a baby. He looked up at me with the lonely eyes and started purring. My heart melted and I knew he was the furry one. Someone had already named him Wolf due to his gray color and pointed ears. He was and is adorable. He is now age seven and the king of the house.

This workbook would not be complete unless I stated that Wolf has endorsed it. Wolf is my loving shadow and I have talked through every word of this notebook with him and he gives his full approval.

Wolf and I realize that if you are using this workbook, it is because you love your furry friend and want to provide for him or her even when you can’t be around. We wish you and your furry member of the family the very best in health, love, cuddles and the transitions that life brings.

With Love from Wolf and Theodocia

Characters Unleashed: Writing Exercises For New Authors by Theodocia McLean

Congratulations, You Have Decided To Write A Book.

Writing your first book will send you on a roller coaster of emotions. Maybe you have dreamed for years of retiring from your job, creating time and the perfect space to write your novel. The words might pour out of your mind faster than you can type or you might face dry spells where the words won’t come. Writing your book will become a labor of love, intense work, laughter and tears, but seeing your book in print will be one of the most thrilling experiences of your lifetime.

Family and friends might ask you the very same question that you find yourself asking as you stare at the blank white page in front of you. Why am I writing this book? Is my first intention to become famous and get rich or do I have a story, an idea or some information that I want to share with others?

In my experience, my first book was fiction because I had a story in my head that wouldn’t leave me alone. A story that I needed to tell if for no other reason than getting it out of my head and the satisfaction of reading it in print. From there I branched out into a memoir in hopes of sharing a part of my life journey. My workbooks were written out of a need to share important information with others. I created a format that allows my reader to write their own contribution in the workbook and make it their own.

I think the best authors have written out of the sheer pleasure of writing the novel, biography, short story, poetry etc. Passion for the characters, story or information that you want to convey will be the spring board that will keep you writing.

The satisfaction of selling my books is surprisingly not about money at all. I have discovered that selling a book is a humbling experience. If just one person takes time out their busy life to purchase and read one of my books or contribute to one of my workbooks that they hold in their hands and write in, how much more truly lasting satisfaction could I possibly obtain?

Why A Workbook? Words are like clouds, they form, the create amazing things, they create chaos and then they disappear.  You don’t have to be perfect at journaling for this workbook to help you as an author. You do have to be willing to put the work in to reap the rewards.

As your move along into this workbook, you will write about what you know and what you imagine. I created this in workbook format because writing is in your blood and this workbook will guide you.

Every day you get up out bed and experience life. Maybe you go someone, talk to people you know, meet someone new, are perhaps you are forced into a new environment or situation.

Unless you are writing a reference book, your book will most likely be about characters, environment, locations, and time periods. Whether fiction or nonfiction, your book will need to draw your reader out of their space and time and into your creation of space and time. The more you understand how your day to day experience transforms into the life of your book, the better writer you will become.

I wish you the very best in writing, publishing and more importantly, promotion and sales. You are welcome to contact me for help.

Theodocia McLean was born on Beals Island, in Downeast Maine, in 1954.

Sold to the mailman, adopted twice, she wasn’t told her beautiful name until her sixteenth birthday.

Her love for writing began when her fifth-grade teacher captured her imagination with creative writing assignments while she was living away from home in a harsh, punitive private school environment.

A song that she sings every day is the only link that she has to Clara, her one special friend, who made daily life bearable for a short time in that dreadful place. She longs for the day when someone, even a stranger, will show her the proof that she desperately needs on whether her friend really died that terrible day.

This book describes the first twenty-three years of her life with vivid detail and uncompromising honesty. Writing is therapy and telling her story takes her experience out of the shadows into the light.

She hopes that her readers will muster up the courage to tell their story and thus begin their own healing journey.

Footprints In My Life Journey: 30 Day Bi-Polar Workbook by Theodocia McLean

30-Day Workbook Intended To Aide Communication Between Patient, Doctor and Therapist

225 Pages for $12.95

Revised Version September 2018

Dear Friend,

I am writing this to you out of a heart of sympathy and understanding. If you have mental illness, especially Bi-Polar, you need to know that you are not alone. I have wrestled with the debilitating illness of Bi-Polar and DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) and I consider myself a survivor. Yes, like you, I will have mental illness for the rest of my life. I consider myself a survivor, because I have been properly diagnosed (therefore am not going insane, as I once thought). I am on the proper medications for my disorder and I have the ‘Will Power’ to live.

The first step for me was getting through the denial. I will say, that this took way too long, but it is a journey that each of us must take individually. The second step for me was getting and continuing treatment and therapy in order to get a record of history, the right diagnosis and the right treatment. My illness might be more complicated than your diagnosis due to DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder). There is no medication for DID, but therapy has greatly helped. Medication is so different for everyone and finding the right combination can take years. Just when you think you have the magic formula; your body adjusts to it and it can be a starting over process or just an adjustment in the dose. The third step for me was determining that I didn’t want to continue with long recurring bouts in a Psychiatric Hospital. To be honest, this step took years. The fourth step for me was what I named, ‘My Will’.

Each Step is taken at a different pace for each individual. I don’t believe there is a magic time table. For me, I had to determine the quality of life that I wanted while surviving with mental illness. As a writer and someone who had a journal most of my life, it became apparent that I needed to apply those skills to my life long recovery process. I know that everyone is not comfortable with writing, expressing thoughts on paper or tracking anything on a consistent basis. However, it is my experience as time goes on, this process not only helps myself, but my doctor, therapist, family and friends.

This workbook is a labor of love. Please give this workbook as a gift to those who need it.

I begin with a poem: I wrote this poem in April 2002, when it finally dawned on me that all of us with mental illness have to fight for our mental health. We have to fight the depression, the darkness, suicidal thoughts and the shadows of the past. We have to fight the anxiety of the present and the fears of the future. I find that I have to go to a place deep inside me. A place, I call, ‘My Room of Will’.

I wish you the very best in health and happiness.

Nephilim: Living Among Us by Theodocia McLean

Is This Half-Breed Living Among Us Today?

People are experiencing encounters with these fallen angels who have both de-evolved and evolved with an insatiable lust.

Theodocia McLean’s book, The Nephilim: Is This Half-Breed Living Among Us Today? is a unique approach to the “Nephilim” (offspring of fallen angels and human copulation).

This might possibly be Theologians best kept secret.

This is a fictional account of the “Nephilim” briefly described in the Bible. Her premise is that fallen angels survived the great flood that wiped out the earthbound Nephilim.

This fictional accounting is set in the backdrop of a convention of people who are experiencing encounters with these fallen angels who have both de-evolved and evolved with an insatiable lust and the question remains, is this half-breed among us today?

My Life For Her: Enhanced Edition by Robert J Saniscalchi

 My Life, For Her is a story about a Vietnam veteran who becomes a cop, and a cop who becomes a hero as he struggles to save his family. The reader is taken on an action-packed journey from hometown America to the jungles of Colombia, as Rob and his comrade Tex struggle against the forces of darkness. This book is not only an adventurous thriller, it is also a story about love, undying faith, and humanity. Suspense, action, and drama are carefully crafted together in this book for a memorable tale.

‘Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.’ General George S. Patton

Format: Kindle Edition: Verified Purchase

New Jersey born author Robert Saniscalchi returns to his 2010 debut novel with editorial enhancement by Autumn Conley and portions of the book embellished for the progress of the story. He subsequently published BULLETS AND BANDAGES (inspired by his older brother who was a field medic Vietnam 68-69) and FREEDOM’S LIGHT (addressing the wars in Afghanistan). Now MY LIFE FOR HER is placed before readers as a more polished novel that reflects the impact of the Vietnam War and the interaction of a veteran as a policeman fighting the drug cartels. Robert lives in both Pennsylvania and Florida.

Robert opens this story of Vietnam War veteran medic who has returned home to Pikeville and has become a police officer. The mood Robert establishes is sensitive and reflective: ‘Rob Marrino had sensed something odd yet familiar, that same old feeling that his life had circled back to the same time and place he had been before. The day was bright, the air fresh and invigorating. He had hoped that was a sign of a new beginning. Now, he had to wonder about that. It was Rob’s day off after his first week back to work in three months. A chain of events started in May; one he was struggling to forget. Thankfully, he was doing much better now, with the help of his doctor, his loving family, and the medication….

Now he sat admiring the mirror finish on this freshly waxed and detailed Mustang. Over the years, he had enjoyed working on the car, keeping it clean and tuned up. The car was a gift he bought for himself after making it through the bullets and bandages of the hell in Vietnam. The 1969 Mach 1, metallic red with flat black trim, was Rob’s pride and joy, so he stored it safely in the garage and drove his old but reliable Chevy pickup most of the time. On summer weekends, whenever they had the chance, Rob and Beth Anne, his better half, dropped the kids off at Grandma’s house, then cruised on down to the shore…’ The setting is well-established Americana, and then the story takes flight.

Many aspects of the story seem tied to fact – Pikeville is in New Jersey, Rob is a veteran medic like Robert’s brother – and that is one reason the theme feels true. But the quiet opening soon changes – Rob is involved in the arrest of drug runners from a Colombian cartel that subsequently kidnapping Beth Anne to Colombia and Rob and his fellow veteran friend Tex travel to the jungles of Colombia to rescue her. There is considerable violence – torture, murder, explosions, etc. that at times mirror the bad memories of the Vietnam experience.

Not having read the original book, which apparently cried for a rewrite, this reader found the story intense and involving and a fine speedy read. Will we ever reach a period when previous wars do not permanently impact both veterans and their families as in PTSD et al? Likely not until wars go away. We go on. Grady Harp, February 19

My Life for Her by Robert J. Saniscalchi is a heartwarming story about a Vietnam veteran. Rob Marino is a veteran turned small town cop in this book that starts off slowly, but builds in excitement and tension as the story moves forward.

Rob could never possibly envision how his life evolves as the unexpected happens, and his chance involvement with the Colombian cartel takes a dangerous turn, as Rob’s wife is kidnapped in retaliation.

This is a well-rounded story that pulls you in pretty much right from the start, and what may appear to be a bland story in the beginning builds into a solid plot with plenty of action and intrigue. Overall, an interesting book with good characters, a fast pace and a story that keeps you interested until the end. A must read not only for its compelling story but for the focus on Vietnam veterans and the bond they share. Solid recommendation.

Freedom’s Light by Robert J Saniscalchi

Once again into the fray we must go to stand firm in the goodness of the light-Freedom’s Light- against those that hide in the dark shadows of evil.

From the streets of NYC, to the remote badlands of Iraq, the world finds itself against an enemy as evil and ruthless as ever before.

Follow Rob and Tex as you are pulled into an action-packed story of love, loss, faith, and enduring friendship

Editorial Reviews:  Author Robert Saniscalchi has penned down a masterful fictitious narrative based on the bitter past of U.S. by reconstructing the tragic event of 9/11.

Featuring a snappy relationship of three brothers (Paul, Roy & Rob) engaged in hearty leisure time of a hunting expedition, author skillfully highlights and brings out the character of 28-year-old Rob, a U.S. army veteran and a team member of ‘Special Operations Delta Force’ where during a casual chitchat Rob updates his brother about his livelihood and hardship at the military and a silent war being waged against terrorism.

Poignant, yet brilliantly told ‘Freedom’s Light’ unfolds itself delivering a wild ride of thrilling quest and dangerous assignment tasked to Rob against the evil of terrorism. Vividly detailed settings entwined with intricately developed evocative prose is explicit and author manages to evoke the emotional attachment for those who have suffered brutally at the hands of terrorism and its ugliness around the world.

Action oriented, tense and dramatic, author Robert Saniscalchi’s fictional thriller is a captivating modern-day parable that is relate-able and entertaining. Those looking for a powerful reality-based page turner are sure to be intrigued by ‘Freedom’s Light’.

Author Robert J Saniscalchi brings us fictional tale, Freedom’s Light, in a very real, honest exploration of good and evil as related to the harrowing events of 9/11–and the aftermath left in its wake.

Saniscalchi’s story introduces us to his protagonist, Rob, embarking on a family hunting expedition within the quiet wilderness of New York State. The peaceful outing filled with brotherly bonding and banter is short-lived, however, as the characters are soon thrown into the horror of the 9/11 attacks and a subsequent military operation. This is all unfortunately foreshadowed by Rob’s warnings, who understands the fragility of freedom and how it must be protected (or the light will be extinguished). A soldier and patriot, Rob becomes deeply entrenched within an elite team called Light Force. The object of the military operation: To identify the source (a terrorist base in Afghanistan) of another possible attack on US soil, and stop it in its tracks.

The characters are portrayed in a realistic and relatable manner, and the action is well depicted as the reader is soon caught up in the emotion and intensity. Although I don’t usually follow war books, shows, and movies, I particularly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who does enjoy the genre. Saniscalchi clearly demonstrates a thorough knowledge of his subject matter, and his story does not disappoint. Everyone I know was in some way impacted by the events of 9/11, and I can still recall the exact moments in which I came to learn about what had happened. This is a story of bravery and pays tribute to the men and women who selflessly fought to protect the United States from terrorism–and continue to do so today.

This an amazing book, it caught my attention from the very first page. It’s about 9 11 and the terrorist that attacked the twin towers and the army that went to battle against them. While I was reading this book a song popped into my head and it is where were you when the world stopped turning by Allen Jackson. That song describes parts of this book. It is well written and I loved the main character. I never knew exactly what happens that day but mow I have more knowledge of what happened. I will recommend this book to my friends and family.

Bullets and Bandages by Robert James Saniscalchi

Bullets and Bandages was inspired from the stories of the author’s brother who was a US Army Field Medic with an elite Rescue and Recon Platoon, Vietnam 68-69. Through those stories, the author found the inspiration and was given the unique insight into the Bullets and Bandages of war. Parts of this book are also about the author’s own experiences, and that special time in our history.

The trails and victories of Rob and his comrades pull you into a world of survival through willpower, tenacity, and wit. This story is not only an adventurous thriller, but is also a story of love, humanity, and overcoming. CHAPTER 1- EXCERPT- BULLETS AND BANDAGES Some memories exist because they are etched into one’s mind with fire and anguish of true experience, not by choice. From my tour of duty in Vietnam, I am filled with the experiences that cannot be wiped away. I can recall the events, the names and the faces as if they had been in front of me only a short time ago. To this day, I thank the Lord in my prayers for helping me survive.

Sometimes, I dream of the tranquil rice fields or of the hot steamy jungles—– very quiet and peaceful. Occasionally, the dreams are of the men that I could not save, and of the ghastly shadows of my enemies. These images are a contradictory and discordant collage of the real horror of war. I have no misgivings about what was done; I was a soldier doing my duty for my country, in a war far away from my home. It was a war where our forces could not fully engage the enemy. The Army could not move on a strategic offensive and take the ground war into Hanoi or Cambodia. I had to learn a new type of warfare or would not have survived.

After some time, I began to know the enemy and anticipate his movements. My unit traveled the jungles in platoons of heavy infantry in search of Charlie. Our nerves were constantly on edge. It was a guerrilla war, and I learned to adapt. With a little time, my platoon began to work together. We learned to think like the enemy and use our instincts to fight together as a team. When the enemy would stand and fight, we fought back until they ran.

Unfortunately, I knew before long those same troops would try to sneak up on us again. Copyright Robert Saniscalchi 2007.

The Sitcom Murders 1: Sexy Sixties Sitcom by Nicholas Victor (aka Nick Iuppa)

What if the heroine of an immensely popular television sitcom suddenly learned that her show was being turned into a horror series by a deranged screenwriter? What if she was able to drive over to the writer’s home and confront him? What if she then learned that he was able to give her the power to defend herself and even begin to love the murder and mayhem of HORROR? And then, after she had eliminated three homicidal maniacs, he explained that he had more work for her… more sitcom murders.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: This first installment of The Sitcom Murders is a dark comedy about a sexy sixties TV character who suddenly realizes that her TV show has become a horror story and she just might be the first victim.

Lacy Livingood, the TV heroine, is home alone when a madman suddenly begins breaking down her kitchen door. Terrified by his hideous stocking mask and threats of rape and murder, Lacy beats him off with a frying pan, then rushes to her car and drives across LA to find the show’s writer. She’s not sure what to expect, but aging screenwriter Billy Edelman explains it all.

“Ya know, for a girl half the world thinks is brilliant, you’re a little slow on the uptick,” Billy answered. “You and Johnny and Ronnie are characters, in a sitcom, a very popular one fifty years ago. Look at this.” And with that Edelman clicked a link and entered eBay. He typed in “Lacy Livingood” and pages and pages of Lacy Livingood memorabilia confronted him: autographed photos, scripts from the show, clothes she had worn.

“But our show’s not on anymore,” Lacy whispered.

“People’re always lookin’ for somethin’ fresh,” Billy answered. “If not new characters, at least old characters in new stories. And that’s what I’ve given them.”

“So now I’m the main character in a horror story,” Lacy said at last. “Okay. But if I have to be in this show of yours, at least teach me how to defend myself. You can do that much for me can’t you?”

And Billy could; in fact, he could help Lacy learn to enjoy murder as much as his villains… but with dire consequences.

Author Nicholas Victor (aka Nick Iuppa) has given us something never seen before, a TV sitcom character who actively conspires with her show’s living writer to defeat the bad guys. There is a fine line between reality and fiction, TV characters and real people, self-preservation and blood lust. And sexy Lacy finds herself right at the crossroads of everything and loving it.

If you enjoy dark humor, pick up a copy of The Sitcom Murders I – SEXY SIXTIES SUBURBIA. I’m sure you will enjoy the read and find yourself looking forward to the next installment. (A preview of The Sitcom Murders II: SEVENTIES NEWSROOM is available as part of the first book).

I think you’ll find yourself as curious as I am about where the author will go with this new series…and just who Lacy Livingood will murder next.

The Peacemaker Series

*************************

Alien Mission (The Peacemaker Book 1) by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

CTHULHU MEETS THE DA VINCI CODE When young teen, Victor Encinas desecrates a religious shrine in order to join his brother’s gang, he finds himself drawn into a world of alien spaceships, insectile high priests, and an interplanetary religion that seeks to take over the earth. Somehow, he finds that the most popular girl in school is in love with him and he’s been appointed The Peacemaker. The first book in The Peacemaker Series introduces us to the desert metropolis of Tumac City where a historic Spanish mission has been watched and studied by alien priests for centuries. The benevolent high priest of the unearthly religion is nearing the end of his life. And a revolt on his planet may soon bring about the return to ancient barbaric ways and the ascent of his depraved son. That shape-shifting monster has been exiled to Earth and kept in check by a series of human Peacemakers chosen by the high priest himself, and Victor is next in line for the role.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: This is not your typical Alien Invasion.

If you are new to Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira’s books, you are in for a surprisingly powerful paranormal adventure. Those of us who have been following these authors, find this first book in The Peacemaker series, a masterful beginning.

Imagine a terrifying supernatural experience that gives you incredible powers! This is exactly what happens to a teenager named Victor Encinas, who is so desperate to join his brother’s gang that he desecrates a religious shrine as part of his initiation. And then:

“Suddenly a beam of intense white light shoots down at Victor and blinds him for a moment. He falls to his knees and feels himself jerked up feet-first into the sky above the church. The building, the truck, and the whole parking lot seem to jump back violently until he finds himself suspended hundreds of feet over them. Victor twists up to look into the light that has captured him, but its brilliance overwhelms him. “GOD ALMIGHTY!” he calls.”

Does God have anything to do with it? Victor is freed from the beam of light but soon learns that he has just been chosen to become a human peacemaker and stand against an exiled alien high priest who is plotting an interplanetary religious take-over of the earth.

As US government, Native American, and Religious authorities work (sometimes at cross purposes) to understand the strange puzzle pieces coming together near the mission, a series of grisly serial killings begin. And then, as if young Victor doesn’t have enough on his mind, he finds the most popular girl in school falling in love with him, becoming a great help and support, but, in the process, also a target of the killer.

If you enjoyed reading The DA VINCI CODE, you will not want to miss “Alien Mission,” the first installment of The Peacemaker series. Take special note of the extensive list of characters at the beginning of this book, as the authors will build on this list going forward. This story is beyond your wildest imagination, and it is only the beginning.

I look forward to what comes next in The Peacemaker series. I purchased this book in Kindle and this review posted on December 13, 2018.

Stand Alone Books

*************************

Avenging Adelita by Nick Iuppa and John P. Mendoza

A tender romance with a ticking time bomb at its heart.

There’s a bomb on this train. It will explode before you reach your final destination…because you murdered my wife.

University professor Tom McKeever has just lost his wife Adelita to cancer. But the more he thinks about it, the more he realizes she didn’t have to die.

The faculty and administration of the university where he teaches in Mexico played a major role in causing her death.

Now, Tom relives powerful memories of his life with Adelita as he and the rest of the faculty take a train ride into the mountains. He plans to gain revenge by blowing up the train, killing all those who have wronged him and everyone else on board… including himself.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Nick Iuppa, Author of ‘Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games, has teamed up with John P. Mendoza to bring us another fast-paced, action suspense thriller that will keep readers turning pages and biting their nails.

There’s a large cast of unique characters, many of whom are confined to business class cars on the Copper Canyon Railway as it speeds through the Grand Canyon of Mexico, unaware of the impending man-made disaster that’s about to shatter the serene environment.

Somewhere in the process of grieving for his lost wife, Adelita, his “warrior woman” love, Professor

Tom McKeever walks a thin line between reality and golden memories that keep pulling him back into his-her beauty, delicious aroma, and open arms. The gut-wrenching knowledge that there was an experimental cancer treatment that might have saved Adelita’s life, had it not been for the decisions of one man, is more than Tom can bear. The need for revenge seethes like red-hot embers but conflicts with thoughts dredged up from a Catholic School upbringing: “Vengeance is mine, saith the lord!”

Time is running out, but somehow the collateral damage begins to seem more and more defensible, a justifiable murder suicide. Is it? Find out; come ride the rails into Copper Canyon when time is definitely not on your side.

I endorse Avenging Adelita by Nick Iuppa & John P. Mendoza as these two authors give the reader what they have come to expect; great descriptive writing, with dialog and startling transitions from present to past and back again placing the reader in the mind of this widower.

Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games by Nick Iuppa

“Nick Iuppa loops a brilliant mix of technology, romance, military lore, and vampires into a terrifying, sexy spree in the Swiss Alps. The details are 3D. If you’re looking for a heart-pounder, this is it.” S.B. Stinnet

The castle of 15th century duchess Elizabeth Laskaar looks down on the little Swiss village of Murdenwald and the secretive military complex nearby. There, the UN hopes to end world conflict with a vast military simulation that will dramatize the apocalypse that will follow the next major war. To head the project, they hire notorious Hollywood producer Donald Vito, master of explosive action adventures, who still mourns the murder of his teenage love in the 1950s.

Vito and the simulation team use new technology to build hundreds of virtual soldiers and terrorists you can touch, speak to, and reason with. But they also begin to feel the influence of Elizabeth Laskaar. She’s often called Bloody Bess – the first real vampire – because she maintained her youthful beauty by slaughtering her maidservants and bathing in their blood.

Recklessly inspired by their surroundings, the team creates a virtual vampire that soon takes on the characteristics of Elizabeth’s magnificent, long-dead husband. Soon, he and Bess stalk the compound, seducing everyone working on the project, until vampire blood surges beyond the humans to the virtual characters with unthinkable consequences. In the end, perhaps, only the power of Vito’s long-lost love can save humanity.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games is a magnificent fictional horror drama featuring ancient vampires, teenage romance, and a top-secret military project. The Doomsday Games, as the project is called, involves a team of international scientists, engineers, and military personnel who gather in the ancient town of Murdenwald, Switzerland, to do no less then put an end to war.

Nick Iuppa developed a cast of authentic and unique characters like Elizabeth Laskaar (Duchess of Hungry) known as “Bloody Bess” to her victims in 1580 in the small village of Nyirbator Hungary. She prowled the streets of Murdenwald seeking out young women to murder so that she could bathe in their blood. Her husband Ferenc, some say, is still the director of the town’s ancient library. A most beautiful man with midnight blue eyes, he waits for naïve young women to come to his tower and aid him in his evil work. Then there’s Donny Vito, the world’s greatest film producer, called upon by the U. S. President to breathe life into the Doomsday Games. Elli Capadonico is the girl Donny loved in his youth; she fell victim to Arnie Cudgel, an obsessive young man with both romantic and sadistic intentions. The cast also includes scientists, mathematicians, military personnel, writers, artists, technicians, Chu Yun Trang (the director of a rogue nation seeking to build nuclear weapons), and a myriad of simulated characters who populate the virtual Armageddon.

Nick’s highly descriptive writing takes the reader from the Middles Ages to a 1950s high school romance, to mysteries surrounding the ‘knowledge’ held in the ancient Murdenwald Library, to the International Simulation Center itself where the final challenge becomes solving “the God Problem.” Nick weaves these stories together so skillfully that the separate lines merge to become plot twists in an amazing and unexpected ending.

The author, Nick Iuppa, is the son of a prominent Rochester, New York doctor. Nick attended the University of Notre Dame and did his graduate work at Stanford. Nick’s first job was at MGM Studios in Hollywood where he worked on TV specials with Dr. Seuss and Chuck Jones (creator of the Road Runner). He also had the privilege of writing for the Wonderful World of Disney, working as an instructional designer for Eastman Kodak, leading Bank of America’s in-house TV production group, managing the Learning Technologies Group within Apple Computer, and finally returning to Paramount Pictures in Hollywood where he designed Internet entertainment and built Hollywood-style simulations for the military.

Nick’s extensive travels to Europe have inspired some of his characters and settings. His work history, technical knowledge, and experience have given him the tools and concepts for his novels.

I endorse Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games by Nick Iuppa for the creative genius of the Doomsday Game. This review was completed on October 2, 2014.

Esteban Meets Alicia by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

As two escaped convicts and the worst sandstorm in recorded memory descend on the little town of La Sentencia, Arizona, Esteban Dorantes encounters a mysterious and beautiful woman. She advises him that (like his great, great grandfather before him) he must set off on a quest in search of the fabled seven cities of gold… to save La Sentencia. She adds that she too has a quest… to find the man who murdered her.

Esteban’s Quest by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

Magical Madness

A fireball launches itself from the Arizona desert leaving behind three camels, a magical jukebox, and a five-year-old girl who only speaks Italian.

Soon, the nearby town of La Sentencia is reeling from a series of disasters. The copper mine, which supports the town, shuts down leaving most of the population unemployed. Massive sandstorms batter the place. And then the Devlin Lucero shows up. He seduces a pretty substitute teacher and then uses her to spread greed, anger, and vengeance everywhere.

In the face of all these trials, Esteban Dorantes decides to retrace the steps of his great, great grandfather, who once led a quest to find the Seven Cities of Gold. Aided by the camels, the wisdom of the little girl, and the spirit of the magical jukebox, he hopes to locate a great treasure and bring it back to save La Sentencia.

Esteban is accompanied by Ceci Moreno, his old high school sweetheart, the only person in town who doesn’t think he’s a madman. But Ceci is still in love Gabriel Romo, another dreamer who somehow feels he can bargain with the devil to save the mine and the town.

Wacky, scary and spectacular, Esteban’s Quest blends science fiction, Aztec lore, classic horror, and offbeat humor into an unforgettable tale of love, destiny, magic, and redemption.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Step aside Indiana Jones. There’s a new adventurer in town. Esteban Dorantes may be a little more reluctant, but he has an even greater sense of destiny than even Dr. Jones. Dorantes is goaded by the desperate needs of his impoverished hometown and visions of his great, great grandfather… an African slave who once led Spanish Conquistadors on the first quest for the Seven Cities of Gold.

The story opens in the Arabian Desert where a wall of wind a mile high and a hundred miles wide, roars though an oasis carrying off a husband and wife team of archeologists but leaving behind their five-year-old daughter.

We move to La Sentencia, a small town in Arizona, which is devastated by its own windstorms and other disasters including the immanent closing of a copper mine… the only business in that part of the state.

What’s the link between these two desolate desert locations… the little Italian girl who suddenly shows up on the winds of a sandstorm to advise the residents in Arizona? And then there’s an ancient artifact that may have been left by space travelers. Does it hold the key to the building of great earthly civilizations… and the salvation of La Sentencia?

Esteban Dorantes must have some sense of all this as he decides, at the little girl’s bidding, to takes up his great grand-fathers quest for The Golden Cities and save his home town in the process.

The novel’s fifty-six chapters of action-packed adventure may surpass some of the greatest quests ever told, with its Aztec lore, science fiction spacecraft, magical jukebox, a destiny that spans generations, horror, humor, three camels, talking coyotes, a very sexy substitute high school teacher, the devil himself, and, of course, a love story.

I invite everyone to read Esteban’s Quest and experience this compelling tale for themselves.

I endorse Esteban’s Quest by Nick Iuppa and John Pesqueira. I encourage you to purchase other books by the team including: The Carlos Mann Trilogy (Alicia’s Ghost, Alicia’s Sin, Alicia Bewitched) and Avenging Adelita (romance), in addition to the stand-alone novels by Nick Iuppa include Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games (fictional horror drama featuring ancient vampires, teenage romance, and a top-secret military project) and Taken by Witches (a modern horror story based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales).

Taken By Witches by Nick Iuppa

When he was a child, Niko Madonie was terrified of his over-protective grandmother. Somehow, he knew she was a witch possessed of overwhelming supernatural powers and determined to save him from the real and imagined dangers of the modern world.

Now a successful writer in Hollywood, Niko is helping create an animated version of Hansel and Gretel while he struggles to protect his beautiful young wife from sexy, New Age witches who hope to sacrifice her to please the ancient crone.

This is an epic horror romance set against a background of legends, with complex villains, a magical young couple, and a storyline straight from the darkest pages of the Brothers Grimm.

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: If you have ever thought that reading Grimm’s Fairy Tales to your children or grandchildren might frighten them, then you’d better keep the lights on while reading Taken by Witches to yourself.

Author Nick Iuppa asks questions you might not ask aloud. “Do witches exist; where does their power come from, and to what ends will they use it?”

Masterfully written, this multifaceted story begins in the small Polish village of Zakopane high in the Carpathian Mountains. A warlock skillfully tells the story to a shopkeeper and his young daughter after he returns a collection of gruesome masks that the shopkeeper once sent to America so they wouldn’t fall into the hands of the Nazis. The masks are all images of the same woman, a witch named Babcia (pronounced Bob-cha) the Polish name for grandmother.

The warlock’s story begins with a young boy named Niko Madonie who realizes that his grandmother has supernatural powers that terrify him up until the day she dies. As an adult, Niko marries and becomes a successful writer in Hollywood. But even there he is haunted by memories of Babcia and he finds he must struggle to protect his wife from new age witches who decide to sacrifice the beautiful young woman to please the ancient crone.

Imagine Babcia’s evil smell: (the stench of blood sausage mixed with the spicy sweetness of gingerbread) and realize that ancient history doesn’t always stay in the past. Centuries after Niko’s grandmother lost her first baby to medieval witch hunters, she bears a new family to a new husband in a new land, America. But even in this future place and time, she remembers the vow she made when the infant was murdered: “Atrocities to her loved ones will never happen again,” no matter what the consequences.

Author Nick Iuppa has impressive credentials as the former Creative Director of Paramount Pictures’ Digital Entertainment, Head of Apple Computer’s Learning Technologies Group, and Writer for the Wonderful World of Disney.

I endorse Taken by Witches by Nick Iuppa as a modern horror story based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales, which first brought the essence of ancient witchcraft into America’s bedtime stories. Nick’s other novels include Alicia’s Ghost, Alicia’s Sin, Alicia Bewitched, Bloody Bess And The Doomsday Games, and Avenging Adelita.  I purchased this book from Kindle.

The Battle For The Alamo Taqueria by Nick Iuppa, John Pesqueira

Remember The Taqueria

When vigilantes gun down her uncle during an illegal border crossing, an idealistic young Mexican woman decides to make a dramatic political statement by leading a strike force to recapture the Alamo. Then international spies, Hollywood celebrities, the American President, the whole Mexican army, and a teenage kid with a tank become involved… and everything spins out of control

Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: In this very funny and interesting read, a dreamy young Mexican woman name Claudia Madero joins a group who tries to cross the US/Mexican border illegally and is shot at by American vigilantes.

Her aging uncle is mortally wounded in the incident, and – after being returned to her hometown – she partners with a local priest and a successful merchant in an attempt to make a dramatic statement about the negative consequences of US border policies.

Why not recapture the Alamo, she decides, draw the attention of the press, and force an honest debate about the issue?

Of course, there are bungling players on all sides of this comedy, and Claudia and her “Army” end up liberating, not the real Alamo, but a Taqueria designed as a replica of the historic shrine. It doesn’t seem to matter though. The US President decides that he too wants to make a statement and so he sends the US Marines to confront her.

No matter what your political view, we feel that it is important that everyone be informed about both sides of this complex and difficult issue. This is not the time to ignore current events and become a bystander.

If you like Saturday Night Live, you will love this book. I could see some chapters as a skit with the actor Alic Baldwin cast as Donald Trump.

I endorse The Battle For The Alamo Taqueria as a powerful but humorous presentation of an important side of the immigration issue and perhaps a warning about apocalyptic consequences. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on February 27, 2018.

Hiking Southern Nevada, Volume One
by Mr. Tom Garrison

Geographers define a desert as a region receiving less than 10 inches average annual precipitation–an area of irregular and minimal rainfall. Meager rainfall means sparse vegetation and results in exposed geological features. One can think of the raw features as the earth without the makeup of vegetation. Deserts can be stark, creating a drama of space, color, relief, and sheer ruggedness. Despite the sparse vegetation, deserts in the southwest United States are full of life–hundreds of plant species, scores of bird species, and many other animals. The best way to observe the flora and fauna is on foot, far from urban areas.

This guide is about hiking and generally exploring desert areas, specifically southern Nevada. There is no better way to experience the ruggedness, the history of settlement by Native Americans and later pioneers, and the solitude than by simply hiking and exploring. My purpose in writing this book is to enhancement the enjoyment of all who wish to sample the richness of southern Nevada.

My wife, Deb Looker, accompanied me on every hike. This book is a testament to her love of the outdoors as much as mine. Through trial and error from scores of hikes, reading many hiking books, and much Internet research, we have become experienced desert hikers. More than 25 years ago we began seriously exploring the American Southwest. During the first several years we concentrated on areas fairly close to our then home in Santa Barbara, California–the Mojave Desert around Barstow and Baker and Death Valley. We later branched out to Joshua Tree National Park and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in south central California. In the early 2000s Arizona became a favorite destination. Finally, we began exploring southern Utah in 2006. In the fall of 2009 we left California and settled in St. George, Utah. St. George is a great base camp for adventures in southwest Utah, southern Nevada, and northern Arizona.

While we much enjoy the grandeur of big name desert national parks–Death Valley, Zion, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, and others–our preference is hard to find, out of the bustle of humanity, slot canyons. Fortunately, the area we choose to live is full of slot canyons.

I wrote the the 25 stories in this book to describe the natural beauty where we hiked, and to inspire people to get out and enjoy nature. Go outdoors and relax, leave the pressures of daily life behind for a few hours. These hikes are not hard-core three-day backpacking treks through the wilderness. That is a great thing, but not for most people, even those who enjoy the outdoors. There are many good hiking books with long, tough hikes–this is not one of them.

These are more of “get off the couch or out of your daily rut” and see what nature, plate tectonics, and erosion have given you. These stories and hikes are for the average person/family that understands the value of nature, but never quite gets out to enjoy it.

My approach to writing is less formal than found in other hiking books. I’m not above making a joke out of slogging through loose sand or commenting on how rocks in a wash kept grabbing at my feet and that is the reason for my stumbles. Humor and not taking myself too seriously are important parts of my life, and these stories reflect that. At the same time, detailed directions for finding sometimes obscure trail-heads, the hike itself, and where to look for interesting features are provided.

Hiking Southwest Utah and Adjacent Areas, Volume One Updated

Fortunately, the area we choose to live is full of slot canyons. This book was originally published in 2014. One would think not much changes regarding hiking trails. Wrong. For example, at the end of each story I provide Internet links to web sites with more information about the hike. Many of the links are missing as of January/February 2018 and almost all have been updated. With a bit of computer work, I have updated or provided new links where necessary.

Some of the stories required updating since entrance fees or other minor details have changed. One hike, Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area, near Las Vegas now has a totally different approach to the trail-head. Instead of needing a high clearance vehicle to navigate a very rocky dirt road, one can now easily reach the trailhead in a standard vehicle. As of March 2018, the information in this hiking guide is correct for all trails according to my online research and personal experience in re-visiting some of the hikes. Happy trails.

 Why We Left the Left: Personal Stories by Leftists/Liberals Who Evolved to Embrace Libertarianism
by Tom Garrison

One political question intrigues almost everyone who studies, participates, or is interested in politics: “Why do people identify with a certain ideology and/or political party?” Numerous scholarly and popular books examine political ideology/party identification and why certain ideologies attract certain individuals. This book examines that question in two separate yet joined phases. Why do people initially identify with the Left/liberalism and why do these same individuals abandon that ideology to evolve into libertarians? This inquiry is unique in its focus on former liberals/leftists who become libertarians.

Included are 23 stories from Americans and one Irishman, baring at least part of their souls to answer these questions. All contributors at one point identified with the Left/liberalism. Each explains what originally drew them to the left part of the political spectrum. Virtually all mention some version of the popular stereotype of liberals/leftists “caring for the average person.” And all came to see that as a wispy apparition, based more on intention than fact.

A common theme for why the liberals/leftists abandoned their ideology is the ugly discovery of the inherent elitism of leftists/liberals. Over and over in these stories, the contributors give examples of their liberal/leftist “comrades” explaining how they (liberals/leftists) are needed to steer the people in the proper direction, for their own good of course. The true believing leftists/liberals cling to this illusion. Through many different paths, the contributors to this volume come to see the anti-democratic, elitist nature of this belief.

An equally common denominator is the lack of respect for, or even acknowledgement of, personal responsibility in one’s behavior. A core value of the Left/liberalism is victimhood. Everyone—women, gays and lesbians, people of color, public employee union members, the working class, and so on—is an actual or potential victim. As such, any dysfunctional behavior can always be excused as the result of societal oppression, racism and sexism, rich people and capitalists, corporations, “the man”, and on and on. Of course, negative external forces do exist, but they are not always (or even most of the time) the cause of crappy behavior or failure. Many of the stories in this book note that this refusal to acknowledge personal responsibility strongly influenced the contributor to turn away from the Left/liberalism.

Of course, disillusionment with the notion that government action is needed for every problem—real or imagined—is inherent in turning from leftism/liberalism to libertarianism. Many contributors expound upon this theme.

Many contributors also cite the power of classical liberal economic theory—truly free markets—as a factor in their leaving the Left. Real world examples of the failure of socialist/welfare state economic policy became too difficult to ignore.

Finally, a minor, yet telling, theme is the lack of humor or playfulness in liberals and the Left. Several contributors note the feeling of liberation once they rejected the dour self-importance of the Left/liberalism.

One popular conception of libertarians is that they are, for the most part, disgruntled old white guys. While that group is represented, more than 25 percent of the stories are from women and more than two-thirds are by people younger than 50. This gender and generational diversity extends to occupations—contributors include college students, law students, an attorney, a professional artist, public school teachers, a chemist, writers, a filmmaker, a law professor, a stay-at-home mom, a firefighter, the CEO of a $40 million company, a TV reporter, an editor, the CEO of a free market think tank, and a research engineer.

It is my fervent hope that this collection of stories will hasten the day when libertarianism is widely recognized for what it is—the political movement for adults.

Spotlight Interview With Author Tom Garrison

I am a former very active socialist in Santa Barbara, CA who evolved into a Libertarian desert rat. It can be done.

I am the youngest of four children to two Dust Bowl Okies who migrated to Shafter, California in the Central Valley. My family was fairly apolitical, with Republican leanings. I graduated with a BA in political science from California State College, Bakersfield in 1974 (magna cum laude); earned a MA in political science from University of California, Davis in 1976; and finished everything but my PhD dissertation (ABD) in political science at University of California, Santa Barbara in 1980.

I began political life as a typical McGovern liberal, moved left to become a card-carrying member of the Socialist Party USA, and in the late 1990s evolved into a libertarian.

In 1980 I was arrested, along with hundreds of others, for civil disobedience at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant. From the early 1980s to the mid-1990s I was a hyper-active socialist: twice running for Santa Barbara City Council openly as a socialist in the mid-1980s; worked with tenants (three city-wide rent control campaigns in seven years), and gays and lesbians (Deb, my wife, was the first heterosexual on the Gays and Lesbian Resource Center Board of Directors); and fighting political cultists in California’s Peace and Freedom Party (the only socialist party with ballot status in California). During this period, I also found time to work full-time as an editor (from 1982 to 2000) of a political science journal published in Santa Barbara.

I believe my transition from leftist activist to libertarian, while not common, is instructive. Why would someone abandon a strong belief system, lose many comrades/”friends”, and suffer the loss of much of his social network? Why, because I grew to see that the Left (and its handmaiden liberalism) lacked respect and understanding of the concept of personal responsibility; lying was an all too common occurrence that undermined the democratic process; leftists/liberals slavishly adhered to affirmative action preferences, quotas, and identity politics; and leftists/liberals–while embracing “diversity”–all too often display an intolerance for a real diversity of ideas. In 1997 I joined the Libertarian Party.

From the early 1980s to 2000, I published several political articles in publications such as Liberty magazine, the Santa Barbara News-Press, the Santa Barbara Independent, The Socialist, Left Out, and Tenants United.

More than 25 years ago my wife Deb and I began seriously exploring the American Southwest. During the first several years we concentrated on areas fairly close to our then home in Santa Barbara, California—the Mojave Desert around Barstow and Baker and Death Valley. We later branched out to Joshua Tree National Park and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in south central California. In the early 2000s Arizona became a favorite destination. Finally, we began exploring southern Utah in 2006. In the fall of 2009 we left California and settled in St. George, Utah. St. George is a great base camp for adventures in southwest Utah, southern Nevada, and northern Arizona.

While we much enjoy the grandeur of big name desert national parks—Death Valley, Zion, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, and others—our preference is hard to find, out of the bustle of humanity, slot canyons. Fortunately, the area we choose to live is full of slot canyons.

From 2000 to 2009, I mostly dropped out of politics and concentrate on my job (Real Property Appraiser for the Santa Barbara County Assessor’s Office); building a real estate “empire” (four rental condos); and exploring and hiking the southwestern United States with Deb, as often as we could get away.

Since December 2010 I have had more than 100 hiking stories and political and humorous essays published (as of May 2018) in The Spectrum (St. George, UT daily newspaper), The Independent (St. George, UT), the Salt Lake Tribune (Salt Lake City, UT), the Mesquite Local News (Mesquite, NV), The Sun Runner (Joshua Tree, CA), Moapa Valley Progress (Logandale/Overton, NV), and the Los Alamos Daily Post (Los Alamos, NM). My most recent book is Hiking Southern Nevada, Volume One (April 2018). It can be found at Amazon. Here is a link: https://www.amazon.com/Hiking-Southern-Nevada-One-Garrisno/dp/1986572153/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

For about one year, starting in October 2011 I had a once-a-week (Mondays at 2:30) 30-minute talk radio show (as a segment of Jake Shannon’s two hour “Mental Self-Defense” program) on station KTKK (630 am) out of Sandy, Utah covering the Salt Lake City area. I discuss the libertarian perspective on a variety of issues.

Interview:

What makes you proud To Be A Writer From Utah? Most of my published works are hiking stories. There is no better place to explore the outdoors than southwest Utah.

Who or what inspired you to become an author? A few years ago, I read some crappy hiking stories in the local newspaper. I can do better than that. I began submitting stories, they were published, and I even got paid for my work.

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? Nope. While my mother loved to read, there was no particular emphasis on writing. Later, after graduate school, I edited a political science journal for 18 years and became a decent writer.

When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published? In my late 20s I began to submit political essays to the local newspapers. They were published. Since then, I don’t write anything without the intention of being published.

What has been the most rewarding experience in your writing process? It is an ongoing experience. Getting an email from a reader saying how much they enjoyed my story and how it has inspired them to explore the outdoors.

How many published books do you have (please list the titles)? Five

Why We Left the Left: Personal Stories by Leftists/Liberals Who Evolved to Embrace Libertarianism (2012)

Challenge Authority: Memoir of a Baby Boomer (2014)

Hiking Southwest Utah and Adjacent Areas, Volume One Updated (2018, first published in 2014)

Hiking Southwest Utah and Adjacent Areas, Volume Two (2016)

Hiking Southern Nevada, Volume One (2018)

Please introduce the genre that you prefer to write in and why? Hiking/travel stories. Why, because I love to explore new areas. Fortunately, I have a wife who loves it as much as I do.

What positive piece of advice would you give to new authors? Get it published. Closely examine the publication you want to write for, meet their writing guidelines, and start sending in your material.

Who is your favorite author and why? Harry Turtledove. No one writes alternative history as well as he does. The characters are real and the stories an amazing feat of imagination.

Stone In A Sling: A Soldier’s Journey by Scott A. Meehan

In the story of a soldier who served in the U.S. Army from 1980 to 2005, Scott reveals the behind-the-scenes life of an enlisted soldier and a commissioned officer.

From surviving a terrorist attack in Colombia, encounters in the Amazon jungles of Ecuador, East Berlin and Desert Storm, and obtaining obtaining information leading to the capture of Saddam Hussein, this biography explores the reality of military life.

But above all, Stone In A Sling is a story of inspiration, leadership, adventure and unwavering courage.

************************

Author Bio: Born on October 19, 1958 in Baltimore, Maryland, to a police officer-turn-missionary pilot, and his high school sweetheart, Scott Meehan grew up living in seven states and three foreign countries, attending thirteen different schools. After a hitch-hiking tour in the summer of ’79, through Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru, he joined the U.S. Army Special Forces in 1980.

Seven years after joining the Army, Scott, along with his wife and two children, got out of the Army and attended college at Southeastern University and ROTC at Florida Southern, both in Lakeland, Florida. Three years later, he was back in the Army as a commissioned officer in Military Intelligence…just in time to deploy to Desert Storm in 1991. There, he was part of a Psychological Warfare team attached to the First Marine Expeditionary Force where he gathered Top Secret intelligence from front-line enemy defectors who reported that the Iraqi soldiers were all ready to surrender.

Twelve years after returning home from the Gulf War, Scott, then a major, was deployed to Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) in 2003. After one year at LSA Anaconda in Balad, Scott received the Bronze Star for several actions on the battlefield, which included information gathering that led to Saddam Hussein’s capture. He returned for a second tour in 2005 to Baghdad’s Green Zone before retiring in 2005.

Now living in Orlando, Florida, with his wife, Trena, of 37 years, his married son and his wife, two granddaughters, his daughter, her husband and two grandsons, Scott is the Business Department Lead at City College. His memoirs include: STONE IN A SLING: A SOLDIER’S JOURNEY and ALL I COULD BE. Scott has also written two novels; LOVE IN THE HOUSE OF WAR and MILLENNIAL GIRL; a novella, DUTY RECALL, and three short stories: CROSSROADS, COLD WAR IN BERLIN, and GIRL ALONE. He also co-authored the novel: PRINCE OF BABYLON. Scott is currently writing his third novel: THUNDERBIRD.

Throughout my world traveling experience, I have met some of the most interesting diverse people, who have become the inspiration for my characters.

Author Spotlight Interview

What makes you proud To Be A Writer From Orlando? Orlando is a growing, diverse, metropolis that attracts millions of people from all over the world making this place a melting pot of ideas and a great place to shine your light.

Who or what inspired you to become an author? My experiences of living across twelve states in America, four countries in Latin America, one country in Europe, and two countries in the Middle East. Serving in the US Army for twenty-five years also inspired me to write about my experiences.

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? Yes, on both questions. From third grade until high school graduation, I traveled all over the Americas, meeting a wide range of people, with my parents who were missionaries.

When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published? Two years after retiring from the Army, which was 2007.

What has been the most rewarding experience in your writing process? Completing a story that was well received by readers.

How many published books do you have (please list the titles)?

Non-Fiction:

Stone in a Sling: A Soldier’s Journey (Memoirs)

Crossroads (Devotional)

Fiction

Duty Recall (Time Travel Novella)

Love in the House of War (Historical-Romantic thriller novel)

Millennial Girl (Dystopian thriller novel and sequel to Love in the House of war)

The Cold War in Berlin (Short story spy)

Girl Alone (Short story-Iraqi refugee)

Current Projects

The Valley of Bones (Mystery)

Thunderbird (Paranormal / Fantasy and sequel to Millennial Girl and Duty Recall)

My Shining Light (Historical-Military-romantic thriller)

Please introduce the genre that you prefer to write in and why? I am trying them all but have not decided my favorite yet. Military is almost always the backdrop and a strong female character must be present.

What positive piece of advice would you give to new authors? Always remember that your writing goals should be a marathon and not a dash.

Who is your favorite author and why? I like more than one but Alistar MacLean was an early influence, along with Jack Higgins.

Is There Anything You Would Like To Share? I love character building and have met enough people in my life time to build characters.

About The Author: Author Sandra Lott was born and raised in Texas and is the author of Ride the Wind, God’s Love and My Father’s Eyes: Seeing Yourself through the Eyes of Love and more. She has learned about the love and faithfulness of God through the death of her sixteen-year-old son and many other hardships. Through His love and comfort, she has drawn close to the Father’s love and has developed a passion for studying the Bible. That deep devotion to God in turn has given her the desire to help others grow in their understanding of the love of God and to grow spiritually.

Biography: Let me introduce myself. My name is Sandra Lott and I was born and raised in Texas. Through many rough roads in my life, I was led to the loving arms of God the Father and His saving grace through our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit has been my guide and my Comforter in many difficult situations, one being the loss of my sixteen-year-old son, Gerald Ray Lott. Gerald Ray truly had a heart of gold. He was very loving and considerate as is his older brother Tim. He is now in the loving arms of Jesus and is dearly missed by myself, his father and his older brother, Tim. As God held my heart in His hands then and still does today a passion has grown in me to help the world understand just how great the love of God is; our flesh cannot truly fathom how great and how deep and how wide God’s love for mankind truly is; all we have to do is look at the cross and that should speak for itself.

Death By Chocolate by Sally Berneathy

USA TODAY BESTSELLER!

First book in the Death by Chocolate series

Lindsay loves chocolate. It tastes good, it makes her feel good, it never cheats on her like her almost-ex-husband. It’s her best friend. But someone wants her dead and uses her weak spot—chocolate—to try to murder her.

Lindsay’s only secret is the recipe for her chocolate chip cookies, but she is surrounded by neighbors with deadly secrets. Suddenly she finds herself battling poisoned chocolate, a psycho stalker, and a dead man who seems awfully active for a corpse.

Her best friend and co-worker, Paula, dyes her blond hair brown, hides from everybody and insists on always having an emergency exit from any room. Secrets from Paula’s past have come back to put lives in jeopardy.

Determined to help Paula, Lindsay enlists the reluctant aid of another neighbor, Fred, an OCD computer nerd. In spite of his mundane existence, Fred possesses tidbits of knowledge about such things as hidden microphones, guns, the inside of maximum-security prisons and how to take someone down with a well-aimed kick to his chin.

As Lindsay battles the elusive stalker, poisoned chocolate, and the dead man, she will need more than a chocolate fix to survive. But that’s always a good start.

About The Author:  I grew up in a small rural town in Oklahoma where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be due to the fact that everybody in my family has a singing voice like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories–ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It’s hard to make listeners sit still for the length of a book! Like my family’s tales, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic.

Besides writing, my interests are reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley.

Currently I have written six Death by Chocolate mysteries: Death by Chocolate; Murder, Lies and Chocolate; The Great Chocolate Scam; Chocolate Mousse Attack; Fatal Chocolate Obsession; and Deadly Chocolate Addiction as well as four Charley’s Ghost mysteries: The Ex Who Wouldn’t Die; The Ex Who Glowed in the Dark; The Ex Who Conned a Psychic; and The Ex Who Saw a Ghost. More in each series will be released as soon as I can copy them from my brain to the computer!

I have sold fifteen romance novels ranging from comedy to dark suspense under the names Sally Carleen, Sally Steward and Sara Garrett. For these novels, I won several awards including National Readers’ Choice, Romantic Times Best Silhouette Romance and two Rita finalist slots. Most of the Silhouettes are available as e-books, and I have e-pubbed six of the out-of-print single titles.

Contact information is available on my website. I love to talk to readers! Okay, I just plain love to talk!

Rarity From The Hollow by Robert Eggleton

Lacy Dawn’s father relives the Gulf War, her mother’s teeth are rotting out,and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage — an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It’s up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn’t mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Will Lacy’s predisposition, education, and magic be enough for her to save the Universe, Earth, and, most importantly, protect her own family?

Customer Reviews:

The abuse in the book is graphic, but the story arc is hopeful: a family recovering and becoming better together. Publishers Weekly

A fun, sometimes cleverly-gonzo, and even inspiring tale about an undaunted girl’s close encounter of the weird kind. – David Brin, Award Winning SciFi Author

Amusing at times, shocking at others, a touching and somehow wonderful SFF read. Amazing Stories Magazine

…In the space of a few lines we go from gritty realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It’s quite a trip. — The Missouri Review

Brilliant satires such as this are genius works of literature in the same class as Orwell’s Animal Farm. I can picture American Lit professors sometime in the distant future placing this masterpiece on their reading list.  –Marcha Fox, Retired NASA Engineer and SciFi Author

…utterly compelling…a chilling, engaging verisimilitude that deftly feeds on both the utter absurdity of the characters’ motivations and on the progression of the plot…. In the spirit of Vonnegut, Eggleton takes the genre and gives it another quarter turn. – Electric Review / MidwestBook Review

…a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy…what I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abuse…tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing them…profound…a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy.– Awesome Indies (Gold Medal)

…sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you won’t be is unmoved…a brilliant writer. –Readers’ Favorite (Gold Medal)

The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in several years…. –Temple Emmet Williams, Author, Retired Reader’s Digest Editor

…There is much here worthy of high praise…Eggleton reminds me very much of Robert Heinlein at his peak…. — SF Crowsnest

…Good satire is hard to find and science fiction satire is even harder to find. — The Baryon Review

…psychologically disturbing at a different level to what I have seen before….

#NAME?

…laugh-out-loud funny at times, satiric of almost everything it touches upon… — Atomjack Science Fiction Magazine

…This piece of speculative fiction is nothing like anything I’ve read before. It faces reality head-on while also pursuing themes that are outlandish… amazed by how the author has aptly mingled tragedy with humor…. — Page Hungry Bookworm

…a story with humour and darkness and plenty of twists and turns…. — Splash into Books

…It is one of those books that if it does not make you think, you are not really reading it…. — On My Kindle

“…the writing feels timeless, classic and mature…could be read in a college setting both for the craft itself and its unique brand of storytelling.The premise was brilliant – Tabby A. Fae, My Trending Stories

…reminds me of books like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,Catch 22, and Spike Milligan’s Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall.If you liked those books, you’ll love this one.”” – Dr. Bob Rich, Psychologist, Author”

…difficult, funny, terribly sad, absolutely true, and extremely well told. It should be the winner of literary prizes…. Mary Thornburg, Award Winning SciFi Author

Genre: Adult Social Science Fiction

************************

Robert Eggleton has served as a children’s advocate in an impoverished state for over forty years. He is best known for his investigative reports about children’s programs, most of which were published by the West Virginia Supreme Court where he worked from 1982 through 1997, and which also included publication of models of serving disadvantaged and homeless children in the community instead of in large institutions, research into foster care drift involving children bouncing from one home to the next — never finding a permanent loving family, and statistical reports on the occurrence and correlates of child abuse and delinquency.

Today, he is a recently retired children’s psychotherapist from the mental health center in Charleston, West Virginia, where he specialized in helping victims cope with and overcome physical and sexual abuse, and other mental health concerns.

Rarity from the Hollow is his debut novel and its release followed publication of three short Lacy Dawn Adventures in magazines: Wingspan Quarterly, Beyond Centauri, and Atomjack Science Fiction. Author proceeds have been donated to a child abuse prevention program operated by Children’s Home Society of West Virginia. http://www.childhswv.org/

Robert continues to write fiction with new adventures based on a protagonist that is a composite character of children that he met when delivering group therapy services. The overall theme of his stories remains victimization to empowerment.

Ray and Debi Stanton’s Books


Waynesville, Indiana, a small suburb of Columbus, Indiana, was the scene of four gruesome murders on May 11, 2013.

The 911 call came in a little after 10:30 p.m. “There’s blood everywhere,” Daniel told the 911 operator. “I just walked in and there’s two, I have two bodies here, and I think they have both been shot.

There’s blood everywhere.” Daniel gave the 911 operator his location. He explained to him, “There might be three, because I can’t find my mom either.” He told the operator that the house looked like it had been ransacked. “There was a fight here.” Daniel said. Katheryn Burton was shot and stabbed four times. Each of the other victims: Aaron Cross, Tommy Smith and Shawn Burton were shot at least twice.

Samuel Sallee has been convicted and sentenced to 4 consecutive life sentences for the brutal murders that changed one young man’s life forever. The next day was Mother’s Day! “That guy killed my whole family,” said Daniel Burton, the son of Katheryn Burton. “I think I’ve earned a front-row seat to watch him die.

I’d lump him together with Hitler, because I can’t think of anyone else who is that evil.“ Daniel Burton: “The Trial was my family’s story. This is mine.”

Paula Rose Michelson’s Books

Forced to flee from the Inquisition, which is now in the New World, Rosa marries a man she does not know. Trusted Pablo, who has known her and her husband since childhood shares that though Rosa does not know it theirs will be a good match if one likes fire and ice.

Days of travel into the unknown, the ever-present coyote’s and the heat off the desert floor of what would someday be called Arizona, cause Rose to question her papa’s decision though he is the first governor of Nueva España. Yet, when Miguel tells her he was happy to run as she must because it was the only way her father would consent to their marriage, Rose knows Miguel loves her.

Upon reaching the rope bridge she must cross to get to her casa, fear grips Rosa and she cannot do what she must. Miguel becomes her savior when he carries her across. On that high plateau the couple is safe, and Rose learns to never ask and never tell. Life goes on this way until Miguel’s brother and sister-in-law visit and decided to live there as well.

Only after rescuing her dear madre does Rosa realize while apart that she has given her heart to this false god. Yet, it is this God–the true God of Christianity who reaches out to her. Can she give her life to Messiah and if so what will happen next?

Editorial Review: 4-Stars!

“When Rosa is forced to marry Miguel and flee into the wilderness, she has no idea what to expect. Hiding her Jewish faith and waiting while the Inquisition destroys all she holds dear, Rosa hides away from love as well, and from the world around her. Hope becomes a treasure hidden across a bridge where she dare not tread. And below the bridge lie rejection and forced assimilation into Christianity.

In Love’s Legacy the true God of Christianity reaches out, and Rosa responds, slowly learning to cross her bridge and discover God’s love. A sweet romance, set during the Inquisition, the story combines Jewish tradition, Christian hope, and the welcome of Apache friends into an enticing short tale-of well-researched history.” – Sheila Deeth, author The Five-Minute Bible Story Series, and Book Reviewer at Vine Voice  

5-Stars! “My heart was touched by Rosa and her discovery of God while Miguel is sweet and strong.  This is a powerful read that will touch your soul.” — Amy Coster

From The Author: Writing the Naomi books has been my joy! For Naomi and I penned them together. Although a fictional character, Naomi is as real, kind, loving, and caring as a dear friend would be. She faces problems that only the Lord can help her with. Just like you and me, she must give her heart to Him before that can happen. I love her faith journey and relate to it because I gave my heart to Jesus when I was forty. 

With three of the six Naomi Inspirational Christian Romances published, I’ve read the glowing reviews and discovered that many feel as I do. I rejoice in this for, at my core, I write my heart. And my heart belongs to my Savior! When God called me to write, I prayed that what I wrote would be enjoyed by many and gifted to friends who need to hear of Messiah in a culturally sensitive way, and He answered my prayer.

I started writing the Naomi books while working for Chosen People Ministries as a Church Ministries Coordinator. Revisiting the churches with my husband on behalf of our mission to preach and teach in a Messianic context, I often discovered believers were not sharing their faith because they feared rejection. So, when the Lord directed, I left the mission to write full time for Him.

Over the years, God and the Holy Spirit (in Hebrew the Ruach HaKodesh) have called me to write ‘The Crucible of Becoming’ fictions which deal with difficult worldly issues at times using words I would never say, but God called me to this, so I rejoice! And as the head and founder of LAMB Ministries, I have been blessed to publish one of those teachings as a Christian Self-help book and plan to publish six more in the future. Readers of nonfiction will find a few other books that might interest them. Most notably among them for those who want to know how this profoundly dyslectic author became one, is “From ‘Why Johnny Can’t Read’ To “See Paula Write”: (Memoir: Inspiration Journey of Self-discovery.

About The Author: Writing great Inspirational Christian Romances is author Paula Rose Michelson’s passion. Her desire to inspire others comes from being a late reader, who discovered books were her best friends! A lover of inspiring fictions where the heroine was one for her families’ sake, she writes about amazing women who have unique faith challenges. When asked about her idea for The Naomi Chronicles, Paula said, “Naomi and I penned these fictions together.”

A writer of thrillers, nonfiction’s, memoir, Self-help and works to encourage, when not involved in her craft, speaking or helping other writers, Paula pursues other passions while supporting her husband Ron who is a Lutheran Pastor and Chosen People Ministries field missionary. At one point, both of them worked for the mission. However, when the Lord called Paula to write full-time, she gladly left to devote herself to this work.

This happy mother of two married daughters and grandmother of seven, has friends who often tell her that she weaves such wonderful tails they lose track of the time. Since both family and her ever-increasing reader family matter to Paula, she hopes to impart a blessing to those who read her books.

Some who first knew Paula as the founder, head, and facilitator of LAMB Ministries, have mentioned that a few of those biblical teachings are found within her books. Paula knows this to be true for her desire to faithfully depict Gods love, compassion, and forgiveness while showing her readers The Jewish Messiah of Israel and the world parallel her wish to see those who feel ‘less than’ restored to wholeness. Therefore, within each of her books, she includes a few of the teachings God gifted her so readers can overcome and feel good about themselves.

Mary Clark’s Books

Tally: An Intuitive Life by Mary Clark

It is raining love in Greenwich Village. . .

When Erin, a young poet, reads these words on a piece of folded paper in the garret of Paul Johnston (PJ), an elderly Bohemian artist, she does not know she is on the threshold of a life-changing adventure. She is brought together with PJ by Rogue, another poet, who has known PJ for a decade. Her presence creates tension between the two men. And PJ confides in her that he needs the female perspective in his study of human nature. PJ is a living example of Greenwich Village’s “revolution of consciousness.”

Coming to the Village in 1919, he took in the full flavor, substance and style of the Bohemian philosophy of life. Over the years, through his heightened awareness, he created his own philosophy. He and Erin embark on a journey through the human psyche. Erin learns of PJ’s death and rebirth after an operation at the age of 40, in the skeleton of the man he had been. He is reborn into a second innocence, but has the mind and memory of a grown man. In his search for new reasons to live, he forms new identities:

The Artist, the Professor of Love, and The Old Man, among others. But who is PJ? And who will Erin become?

About the Author: Mary Clark grew up in Florida and as a teenager moved to New Jersey. She graduated from Rutgers University-Newark with a B.A. in Psychology. Her intuition, though, directed her away from
bureaucratic social service.

Moving to Manhattan, NYC, she began work as a volunteer in the theater and poetry
programs at St. Clement’s Church on West 46th Street. For five years, she was the director of the Poetry Festival at St. Clement’s. It was through poet Richard Spiegel, founder of the Poetry Festival, that she met Paul Johnston (PJ), the subject of this book. While at the church, in the West Side area known as Hell’s Kitchen, she intuitively sensed that she belonged in this unique neighborhood. She formed the most important friendships of her life, became an active member of civic groups and worked for several community-based organizations. One of these groups assisted homeless families in Times Square and Hell’s Kitchen. Shortly afterward, she began a monthly community newspaper. This allowed her to continue both her neighborhood involvement and her writing.

After returning to Florida, she completed Children of Light, published online at Scribd.com by Ten Penny Players. Her article, “Living Alive: A New Definition of Intuition,” based on PJ’s concepts, is online at Gatewood Journal, under the pseudonym Erin Yes. Mary’s poetry and prose have appeared in Waterways: Poetry in the Mainstream, Jimson Weed, Lips, The Archer, East River Review, Home Planet News, Clinch Mountain Review, and Freshtones, an anthology of women writers.

Her Wikipedia articles include Paul Johnston (fine press printer and book designer), Egmont Arens, and Emmy Lichtwitz Krasso.

Kim Cormack’s Books

A sexy dark comic romp through the afterlife with three clans of naughty certifiably insane antiheroes who battle each other for shits and giggles while collecting human teenagers as they survive bloody gruesome exterminations of their family lines. If they have demonstrated an impressive level of badassery they are granted a second chance at life as sacrificial lambs for the greater good. They must join one of three clans of immortals living on earth and can be stolen at random by any other clan until their eighteenth birthday. Plot twist…To prove their partially mortal brains are capable of grasping immortality, they will be dropped into an Immortal Testing which is basically a simulation of their own personal hells. Like rats in a maze made of nightmares and other ghastly depraved thoughts best left locked behind those mortal happy place filters, they must come out mentally intact after being in murdered in thousands of increasingly creative ways.

Her body and soul had always belonged to her Handler but in the last couple of months, she’d gone from one prospect to three. She’d never found herself in this position. Grey had been everything to her for so long. She adored him, but he’d been spelled to forget any intimacy between them as he slept. This didn’t make his jealousy any easier to digest because Grey didn’t understand. He couldn’t. She was cursed. She would always remember every heartbreakingly beautiful detail of the nights they’d spent professing their love. He was only ever reacting to half of the story.

After forty years by Grey’s side, she was finally ready to find something more. She yearned for a physical connection that would still be there when they awoke. This was something she could never have with Grey. Orin was a good friend and undeniably great in the sack, but he’d been in a long-term relationship and by long-term, she meant, with the same girl on and off for a thousand years. At this moment neither of them could promise more than drama free shelter from the storm of their endless duties. Lexy had only ever been with two other people willingly, bringing her tally of lovers to a whopping three since becoming Ankh. It had taken her a long time to get to the point of wanting to experience anything physical with anyone but her Handler. She felt ready to enjoy the perks of her afterlife.

She’d known Tiberius would be here, he was the leader of Triad. Their titillating encounter during the last Summit had left her with an urgency to experience all that their dark attraction had to offer. She hadn’t been able to shake the sexually charged visions of Tiberius as he sliced his blade into her skin, showing her a little something she hadn’t known about pain induced healing pleasure. Their brief sensually charged encounters since the Summit had left her yearning for more. She’d accidentally started something with Orin. Being a thousand years old gave Orin a pretty good grasp on the realities of attractions left unfulfilled, he was all for her taking a night to see Tiberius’s chapter through till its end. Orin had made it quite clear that he had no intention of getting into anything more serious than booty calls and flirtations with her until she was had closed her book of unknowns.

About The Author: Kim Cormack is the always comedic author of the darkly twisted epic paranormal romance series, “The Children of Ankh.” She worked for over 16 years as an Early Childhood educator in preschool, daycare, and as an aid. She has M.S and has lived most of her life on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. She currently lives in the gorgeous little town of Port Alberni. She’s a single mom with two awesome kids. She has a son in grade 8 and a daughter in University at VIU. If you see her back away slowly and toss packages of hot sauce at her until you escape.

A Personal Note: I began writing this series shortly after my M.S diagnosis. I had many reasons to fight. I had incredible children, a wonderful family, and amazing friends but this series gave me a purpose. Whenever things become dark, I use my imagination to find the light within myself. No matter what life throws your way, you are stronger than you believe. My hope is that the character’s strength becomes an inner voice for the readers that need it. Stand back up and if you can’t stand… Rise up within yourself. We are all beautiful just as we are. We are all immortal.

All heroes are born from the embers that linger after the fire of great tragedy…

She slept a dreamless sleep free of dragons for she had slain them once again…

A sexy dark comic romp through the afterlife with three clans of naughty certifiably insane antiheroes who battle each other for shits and giggles while collecting human teenagers as they survive bloody gruesome exterminations of their family lines. If they have demonstrated an impressive level of badassery they are granted a second chance at life as sacrificial lambs for the greater good. They must join one of three clans of immortals living on earth and can be stolen at random by any other clan until their eighteenth birthday. Plot twist…To prove their partially mortal brains are capable of grasping immortality, they will be dropped into an Immortal Testing which is basically a simulation of their own personal hells. Like rats in a maze made of nightmares and other ghastly depraved thoughts best left locked behind those mortal happy place filters, they must come out mentally intact after being murdered in thousands of increasingly creative ways.

Behind The Series ☥:One thousand years ago, procreation with mortals became illegal under the immortal law. Any suspected immortal offspring will be allowed to live until the age of sixteen. At this time, a Correction will be sent to erase their family line. The suspected immortal and their immediate family will be executed. If the partially immortal teen manages to survive their Correction, or they have impressed the Guardians of the in-between with their bravery, they may be granted a second chance as a sacrificial lamb for the greater good. They must join one of three clans of immortals living on earth. Clan Ankh, Clan Trinity or Clan Triad. They will then have the symbol of that clan branded into their flesh and with this mark, their souls will no longer be permitted through the hall of souls when they die. They must wait in the in-between for their clans to heal their mortal shells. Once they have reached the age of eighteen they will be sealed to their clan. The next step is to train their partially mortal brains to survive the stresses of immortality. The next feat will be the immortal Testing where they will be dropped into a floating crypt the size of New York City. This Testing is fuelled by your worst nightmares. It is a place of magic. A personal hell, where anything can happen. Here you must die a thousand times if need be, in increasingly violent ways until you understand what it is to be immortal. All three Clans go into the Testing. They must remain together and search for the Amber room in order to survive. There is a catch…only the first two clans that find the Amber room will be allowed out. The third clan will remain trapped in the nightmare forever…

A Blurb From, Sweet Sleep: As her vision flickered one last time, the man was gone. It was her mother looking into her eyes. Her mother’s eyes were filled with so much love that it seemed to release her from her pain and fear as it had when she was a small child. Her mother cradled her as a baby, rocking her back and forth. She was safe now in her mother’s arms. She was at peace. Mommy, her heart sang, you’re here to save me.

The warmth of her mother’s love enveloped her tortured soul. She looked into her mother’s eyes. She touched Kayn’s face and started to sing a song that she had sung to her every night when she was very small.

Sleep, sweet sleep till the morning

Just dream away and close your eyes

My love, you’ll be safe until the morning

Sleeping in my heart, all through the night

Although bad dreams come to scare you

My love will scare them all away

My heart

The lights flickered, the pain went away, and her mother was holding her, singing Sleep, sweet sleep.

The Beginning: Would you live your life differently if you knew the Correction was coming for you?

They have allowed you to live until the age of sixteen because they want you to fight back. Your entire family line will be erased from this world sometime around your sixteenth birthday. You and your twin sister were never meant to be born. There will be no place to run and no place to hide because won’t even know they’re coming.

Do you have what it takes to survive your Correction?

Do you have what it takes to leave your humanity behind?

If your answer is yes, then hold on tight…

You can find the series trailers and the teaser online. If you find me somewhere out there in the vast world of social media, I would love to hear from you.

In the woods lay a bleeding angel in all her glory. Her arms posed gracefully above her head, and her hair soaked in the mud, blood, and feces in which she lay. Dying, fading into the other realm, her form was christened by the rain, as the trees had begun to weep upon her for the brutality she had endured.

Fun facts about this series…

(Correction) The scheduled execution of all partially immortal offspring and their genetic line.

(Ankh, Trinity, and Triad) The three clans of immortals living on earth. You must join one of these three clans if you survive your Correction.

(Testing) At the age of eighteen, you become sealed to your clan. All of the newest members of each clan train for this infamous Testing. The Testing is a floating crypt the size of New York City that contains your worst nightmares. In this crypt, you must die thousands of times to prove that your partially mortal brain can withstand the trials of being immortal. Three clans enter and race for the Amber room. Only the first two to find this room will be set free. the third will remain lost their worst nightmares forever.

(Tombs) If you survive the Testing you have earned your own healing tomb.

(Guardians) Three Guardians created each clan of immortals. (beings from the in-between)

(Crypts) Homebase’s for each clan, scattered all over the world.

(Dragons) There are green scaly Dragons in this series, but in most cases, the word Dragon refers to an emotional Dragon. Lexy is the Dragon of Clan Ankh, and she is capable of operation without emotions. A Dragon is a partially immortal hitman. (or woman) 😉

About Joanne M. Winnie:  Joanne Winnie, a retired Elementary teacher was born in Minnesota, and lives in Oklahoma now. She has spent a lifetime teaching and seeking out ways to help children to improve their reading skills. Out of this quest, came the books written by her. Her first book, Alphabet Safari of East Africa was on learning the alphabet and beginning sounds. The second book, Helen Hyena, The Sound Changer came out of her experience of tutoring third graders. Helen Hyena The Sound Changer is overflowing with sentences made of alliterations. Plus, explains how the digraphs ch, sh, ph, th, and wh are created. My third book, The Long Tradition, comes out of my experience of growing up with the Horse Chestnut Tree in my back yard. It is a science realistic fiction story.

Helen Hyena The Sound Changer is overflowing with sentences made of alliterations. Plus, explains how the digraphs ch, sh, ph, th, and wh are created.

Some Things You Keep: Letting go. Holding on. Growing up. by JJ Landis

After her mom’s suicide, JJ Landis wanders through loneliness and pain. She knows grieving is necessary, but all she can do as a twelve-year-old is keep her sadness locked inside. She walks forward facing rejection, fear, addiction, and depression.

Despite her circumstances, she collects pieces of goodness, trinkets of hope, and fragments of redemption along her path. With healing, she is eventually able to recognize these as gifts.

Growth comes from letting go of the past and pain and stepping forward each day. And with growth comes the wisdom to know what to hold close and what to keep.

We’ve all suffered; we’ve all rejoiced. Every one of us has been on a pilgrimage, and we are all still hiking.

H. Alan Poquette’s Books

In 1964, young Gian-Carlo “Gianni” O’Neill and his best friend Liam Finnerty are off to minor seminary to pursue their dream to become Roman Catholic priests.

Their paths to this end will be long and arduous and fraught with much physical, emotional, and psychological trauma and tragedy.

One will rise to heights never imagined; the other will confront and ultimately overcome demons that have plagued him since adolescence.

Set against real-world historical events, over the next half-century, the story provides an intriguing “What if?” scenario for the troubled past and current– and often scandalous – challenges to one of the world’s most powerful, and arguably, most revered religious institutions.

On a different level, the story depicts a loving and touching portrait of two boys growing to manhood that measures and defines the nature of true and lasting friendship and fraternal love.

Dr. James Fent’s Books

DELIVERANCE is a powerful weapon God has given His church to defeat Satan and set His people free!

However, no one can live in sin and also walk in the power of God!

When we accept Christ as our Savior, we become sons of God, washed clean by His blood, and when we die we go to heaven. This however, does not mean we are totally free and our problems will come to an end. We are still bound by our past; struggling with hurts, bitterness, lack of forgiveness, depression, illness, addictions, or just plain feeling defeated in life. We remain in bondage because although our spirit is born again, our soul (will, emotions and mind) and physical body need to be renewed and transformed. These are the areas that need deliverance.

This manual is a comprehensive bible-based study about the ministry of deliverance initiated by Jesus Christ. It includes a wide variety of related topics including: can a Christian have a demon, how demons enter, the origin of Satan and demons’ generational curses, soul ties, spiritual warfare, the believer’s authority, ministry to children, the deliverance process and much more.

Genre: Religion, Spirituality, Christian Books, Bibles, Christian Living

About The Author: Dellani Oakes is a former A.P. English teacher, photo journalist, substitute teacher and Mary Kay consultant. She can give skin care & makeup advice, correct grammar, take pictures and write an article while controlling a classroom full of rowdy children.

Dellani was making up stories before she could read. Her first really cohesive work began when her older sister started school. Left to entertain herself, she invented an imaginary friend and would regale her mother with tales of Snowy Green and Rainbow School. These stories paved the way for songs and poems in elementary school and short stories in high school and college.

A college theatre major, Dellani took play writing. It became her new love. Scripts being dialog heavy and character driven, this aspect has followed her into her novel writing. She uses verbal exchanges & sparring as a way of revealing both plot and characterization.

Dellani had to set aside her love of writing when she began working as a teacher. Her creative energies were channeled into writing exams to make her students cry–although this wasn’t usually intentional. Unfortunately, between that and motherhood, she didn’t have time to write.

Once her youngest son started school in 2002, she was able to write full time. Her first novel, “Indian Summer”, was published in 2008. Her second novel, “Lone Wolf” made its debut in September 2011. “Lone Wolf” is the first in her science-fiction series. Book two of the Lone Wolf Series – “Shakazhan”, came out in July of 2013. Both have recently been reissued in Kindle Format.

In addition to her historical novel and sci-fi, Dellani has added 7 romantic suspense novels, 4 of which are published by Tirgearr Publishing. The rest, she has independently published. She also shares some of her unpublished work for free on her blog.

Dellani is a Blog Talk Radio host with two shows each month on the Red River Radio Network: Dellani’s Tea Time 4:00 PM Eastern every 2nd Monday & What’s Write for Me at 4:00 PM Eastern every 4th Wednesday. Look for her on Red River Radio Network. (Guests vary)

The Contagion: Get Sick-Run (Book One) by Chad Stambaugh

When a disease cannot be defeated, it must be contained. A father learns his daughter has caught the deadly contagion virus. It’s only a matter of time before the CDC finds out and erases the family from society forever.

Vincent Gallo and his family watch in horror as their neighbors are “contained” by the CDC after their child is discovered to be infected with The Contagion.

Reeling from the trauma and horror of what happened to their neighbors, Vincent’s oldest daughter, Alegra, now shows the marks of the virus. Now the Gallo’s must decide whether they can keep their daughter’s infection hidden from the watchful eyes of the CDC and a fearful population, or take their chances and run.

Contagion is the first book of the 3-part Contagion Series. If you like chilling, thrilling, suspense-filled action, and stories of government conspiracy, you’ll love Contagion.

Editorial Reviews:

Contagion: Get Sick? Run! by Chad Stambaugh is a book I loved for a number of reasons. It establishes a powerful premise — a family has to choose between a loved one and the welfare of society and in the context of an epidemic. The conflict is well-developed and the emotion hits home to the reader in a powerful way. A deadly virus is taking lives in a community and the CDC is out to contain the virus by eliminating victims and families. When Vincent Gallo’s eldest daughter, Alegra, shows signs of the virus, he knows he must make a difficult choice. Will he and his family stay put and try to hide the virus from prying public eyes or will they take their chances at an escape.

The story is well-written in a voice that is fascinating. From the very first page, the reader is captivated by the crisp prose, the powerful images and the focused scenes. But the characters are also compelling. We are thrust into a society where uncertainty seems to be part of the rhythm of life of the inhabitants. From the moment the reader meets the Gallos, they are hooked and they want to find out what will happen to them. Chad Stambaugh weaves realism into the story and makes readers believe in the characters. The plot looks a little linear, without complex layers, but it has surprises that readers will enjoy in a work of this nature and a psychological depth that is ‘contagious.’

There is something about the narrative voice, something unique that keeps readers turning the pages. It’s this originality — the unique way with words, the creativity when it comes to character development, and the compelling elements of the setting — that gives this book its appeal. The author creates a vivid setting and readers can see the lawns, feel the streets and get a whiff of the smell of the pizza, the oddly familiar pasta smells in the air. The beautifully imagined and well-described locales make readers feel as though they are part of the story. I can’t wait for the next book in the Contagion: Get Sick? Run! series.

Reviewed By Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite

******

A contagion, worse than the plague. A family infected. A government conspiracy to cover things up. But what are they covering up? And why? And is the contagion for real? High school senior, Alegra, has the spots that indicate she’s contracted the contagion. Her friend next door was infected and his family was evacuated by people in hazmat suits and their home set afire. Alegra is worried that the same fate will befall her family: her parents and three younger siblings. When she tells her father, he reveals another side of his life no one knew about: a man who knows how to run contraband. And that’s what he does with his family: they run.

Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers Digest

******

Chad Stambaugh’s suspense novel, Contagion: Get Sick? Run!, delves into the ‘what if’ possibilities of a multitude of ‘what if’ conspiracy theories. What if the contagion was just a hoax? What if the hunt and remove government incentive was one to control the general population through fear? And what if it all comes to light and the truth is uncovered? An ordinary American family, going about their daily lives like everyone else, finds their world overturned by a few spots on the eldest daughter’s arm. The spots are the symptom everyone looks for. But does it really mean anything? The plot thickens as neighbors and close friends are removed and their homes exterminated. The only solution, really, is to run. Vincent, the father, knows how to run. He’s done it before. He still has connections in the world of contraband smuggling. But is that enough to help him get his family out of the country and away from the government authorities who want to intern them?

There is good plot development in Contagion. The tension builds along with the action as the conflict intensifies. The Contagion family members are believable and each of their characteristics are well developed. The reader feels a part of the unfolding drama from beginning to end. Knowing how governments work in the twenty-first century, it is certainly a believable, if chilling scenario for the present and even the future when this story actually takes place. This is a thrilling read from beginning to end. And, yet, it’s not the end, really. There are sequels coming…

******

What happens when a contagious virus hits a town? Things could have been different if the disease had stopped at the neighbor’s home. But Vincent Gallo and his family are the witnesses to the horrors of the CDC’s containment of the virus. So when Vincent’s eldest daughter, Alegra, shows signs of having the virus, they must choose between being discovered and “contained” or running for it. But how much time do they have and how far can they go before someone finds out? Contagion: Get Sick? Run! by Chad Stambaugh is an engaging story with a serious crisis and memorable, interesting characters.

A book about a family in the middle of crisis, facing a tragedy that puts not only their lives in danger, but society as a whole will get the attention of any reader who enjoys family themes. Readers are transported into the hearts of the characters, to experience their anxiety and the fear that grips everyone in the Gallo family. But this is a story of love, of a family’s journey to protect itself and to stay alive. It evokes powerful sentiments of compassion for the characters. The author explores relationships in this novel in a brilliant way; it is gripping, unveiling deeper layers of the humanity of the characters.

The story is emotionally rich, suspenseful, and character-driven. Chad Stambaugh’s novel is fast-paced, engrossing, and delightful. While the writing is excellent with great dialogues and vivid descriptions, it is the treatment of character that made me a fan of Chad Stambaugh. The author has the gift of keeping readers engrossed from the beginning to the end of the story. You will ache to find out the fate of the characters in Contagion: Get Sick? Run!

From Karly (age 9):

I thought that this book was creative. I liked how Maddie could talk to animals and how she showed the tricks to her parents to actually prove it to them. I thought it was really fun to read, and I want her to write a second book.

Andrew McDermott’s Books

Flirting With The Moon by Andrew McDermott

LAPD detective, Joe Dean, loses his career, his family and his dignity after the twelfth victim of the serial killer–The Moon–is snatched from under his nose.

Twenty-five years later and Joe is a reformed alcoholic working as a private detective in Florida. While following a case, he comes across a book called Flirting with The Moon. Each of the chapters is a precise description of The Moon murders, sharing details that only the killer could have known. The book is arrogantly dedicated to Joe Dean.

The publisher is in Sydney Australia. Joe contacts them but the only details they have for the author is a private postal box number in a Far North Queensland town called Candle Stick Bay.

Joe becomes obsessed with the possibility of finally bringing The Moon to justice. He flies out to Australia, travelling to the remote tropical North to find a tiny picturesque town overlooking the Coral Sea.

In the guise of a US tourist, Joe sets about meeting the colourful Aussie townsfolk. He secretly digs for clues and unearths some surprising secrets about the town and its inhabitants. But as his investigation twists and turns, a disaster cuts off the town from the rest of the world. Then the murders begin once more and Joe is forced to confront the demons of his past.

Will he discover the true identity of the killer? Or is he flirting with The Moon?
