Islands of No Return (The Harry Waters Series Book 1)

by James Philip

Islands of No Return is the first book in the Harry Waters Series.

Harry’s life goal was to get into the SAS. When we meet him in 1981 he is in the process of achieving his dream. No sooner has he lived one dream than he bumps into another, Sarah, the love of his life. What could go wrong? Well, quite a lot. For example, an idiot Latin American dictator might invade the Falkland Islands within months of Harry earning the right to wear the legendary winged dagger cap badge.

Islands of No Return sets the scene for the rest of the series, concerning itself with Harry’s decade on the road with the British Army’s version of Murder Incorporated – the legendary SAS.

For many of Harry’s friends and comrades the Falkland Islands will indeed become ‘Islands of No Return’ and the war in the South Atlantic will change him in ways he can not even imagine until many years later.

We ask our service men and women to do remarkable and occasionally, terrible things in our names. We ask them to fight in other people’s wars, to pick up the pieces, to do things we have no right to ask them to do. And nearly always our soldiers, sailors and airmen do it. They do it because they believe it is their duty, whatever the cost in wrecked relationships, blood and sanity. Harry Waters is a hero but not like in the movies.

The title Islands of No Return like the titles of many of my other books is inspired by a song. Billy Bragg’s Islands of No Return struck a particular resonance with me, and I’m sure many others, in the aftermath of the Falklands War.

The next books in the series are:

Book 2 – Heroes

Book 3 – Brothers in Arms

Book 4 – It Says here (Available 2015)


by Richard Finney

With humanity at the edge of self-annihilationâ?¦

Vampires, living in the shadows of humans for thousands of years, join the war to end all wars.

Their intervention is motivated by the fear that the extermination of their food supply will trigger their extinction as well.

Matt Haynes and Tyra Redmond briefly met in the Green Zone in Iraq. She was working for the State Department trying to rebuild a country and he was a world weary mercenary being paid by Uncle Sam to protect the Vice President.

Years later, their paths cross again after a world war has ravaged the planet and decimated the human population.

Both are now prisoners at a “Blood Donation Center,” known as CCC197, where they must endure a daily dehumanizing existence of being kept alive only to serve as a source of blood for their captors.

Matt and Tyra must overcome their clashing personalities as they plan and execute an audacious escape to freedom for all the inmates of CCC197.

Standing in their way is a security team manned by human traitors working for the Vampires. And of course any attempt to escape from the concentration camp will mean defeating a species that has superior strength, cunning, and intelligence.

And for Matt Haynes, there is an even more compelling complication — one of the vampire commanders of CCC197 is his brotherâ?¦ or was his brotherâ?¦ before he became a member of the undead.

“Drawing Blood” is a heart stopping, paranormal thriller about the fight for survival. It’s also a story about maintaining human relationships in a world that has been re-made by the undead.

This is the first of the RELICT BOOK SERIES, each an OPEN ENDED NOVEL depicting the fall of humanity and the attempt by the Vampires to maintain control of their new world order.

WARNING to all interested readers: this new vampire novel “ends” with three words — “TO BE CONTINUED.” This is the first book in a Vampire Books Series.

ANOTHER WARNING: Even if you have read dozens of books about the undead, we bet you will discover “Drawing Blood – Book One of the RELICT Series,” is fresh & original, and not your typical Vampire book for adults.

This new vampire book is from Amazon Best Selling author Richard Finney. His critically acclaimed books, “Demon Days” and “DEMON DAYS – Angel of Light,” are now joined by by a hot Vampire Books Series!

Fortune’s Flower

by Mary Ellen Boyd

Verbena Barnes and Damon Thern may have lived in the same village, but the lines between their two families are harshly enforced. Once, six years before, Damon’s older brother Andrew had dared to marry across those lines – to Verbena’s older sister Edeline. The Barnes have since fallen upon hard times.

Then Andrew dies, leaving Edeline in a world that no longer has any use for her. She confides her troubles to Verbena, and one of them is a secret too big to conceal for long. Against her better judgment, Verbena agrees to help. But there is one large – and complicated – impediment: Andrew’s brother Damon.

Damon barely survived Napoleon’s war, He has returned to the family’s country home to recover. The day of Andrew’s death, Damon finds Verbena in his woods, flouting the fences that are supposed to keep everyone out. He had hoped, for his own reasons, to find her. She might not agree but she needs him, and he intends to stay very close.

His sudden and surprising interest in her puts Verbena in direct conflict with her promise to her sister. The secrets mount, tearing Verbena between family loyalty and the promise of security – and love.

It is not so easy, however, to get rid of a man who has no intention of giving up a dream. Verbena might be willing to deny her feelings to keep her sister’s secret, but Damon is willing to risk everything to win her heart.

He will have to, because somewhere out there is a totally unexpected threat.

Gunnison Grit

by Craig Dirgo

Gunnison Grit is a recent novel by bestselling author Craig Dirgo.

A sweeping work of historical fiction, Gunnison Grit is a thrilling account of life in one of the last great boom towns of the Rocky Mountain west. It traces some of the actual history of Gunnison County Colorado over 100 years – from horseback to jet aircraft.

Gunnison Grit chronicles the triumphs and tragedies of a group of hardy pioneers high in the Colorado Rockies. The story follows the coming of the railroads through mining, ranching, lumbering and marble milling. The valley is changed by the First World War and Prohibition, following through the Great Depression and the second “war to end all wars.” Dams are built and mountains tamed. As the mines close and the towns are threatened with extinction, a tourism economy takes hold based on skiing and the magnificent summer beauty of the Rocky Mountains.

Gunnison Grit is the story of the never-say-die Americans who forged this country from the wilderness. These were men and women of the Rocky Mountain west, who never backed down from challenge or adversity. The type of people who made good with what they had and prospered in spite of the hardships that surrounded them. This is the story of the America of simpler times when determination and hard work counted for something.

Over 150,000 words in length, Gunnison Grit is a sweeping saga packed with historical accuracy and good old-fashioned story-telling.

“I’m very excited to bring this out first as an e-book,” Dirgo said. “It allows me a control with style and content that is somehow lacking with mainstream publishers. I always loved this type of novel and feel there is a market that is not being served. Some of the large, traditional publishers I spoke with doubt this type of novel can be a best-seller anymore. I think differently. I think there are many more like me who would like to learn the history of an area in the context of a sweeping tale.”

Winter’s Pearl: Prologue to the Guy Winter Mysteries Series

by James Philip

Winter’s Pearl- Prologue to the Guy Winter Mysteries Series is a novella which sets the scene for the first full length Guy Winter Mystery, entitled Winter’s War.

Winter’s Pearl is set in London in the first months of the Second World War during the period of the so-called â??Phoney War’.

It draws us into the complex world of Scotland Yard’s most famous detective Guy Winter; the Mystery Man. So named because no other living detective has ever solved as many mysteries as Winter of the Yard. However, the great detective’s fame and triumphs have come at a high cost.

Just when we think we’ve discovered our hero at his all time low, it gets worse and it doesn’t ever look like it is going to get better. Who needs enemies when your friends are on somebody else’s side?

Winter’s Pearl introduces – among others – many of the characters who will populate the early books of the Guy Winter Mysteries Series: Guy Winter [The Mystery Man], Helen Chase [the Film Star turned Mata Hari], Hugo Montfort [Winston Churchill's ruthless gopher], Tubby Tyrell [the incorrigible high society fixer], my fictional version of Captain Maxwell Knight [the real life Head of Section B5(b) of MI5], Superintendent Othneil Plunkett [the Machiavellian Head of CID at Scotland Yard], Elspeth Charlton and the loyal and perceptive and dogged Sergeant George Ransom.

I have designed the Guy Winter Mysteries Series to fit together as coherent, linked episodes. One installment will flow to the next and so on with. Winter’s Pearl is literally a prologue to the events in the first full length book in the series. If you have already read Winter’s War, no matter, I am confident you will find the background and the insights in it entertaining.

Awake ye people…, Freedom is calling

by Steve Burns

Anton Passauer is a German exile living in Paris during the early eighteenth century. One evening, in a tavern on the city’s Left Bank, he meets a young French playwright, poet, and philosophe named Voltaire. Reluctantly Passauer reveals that he is a survivor of the Bavarian massacre at Munich in 1705. Voltaire convinces him to break his thirteen years of silence and tell his story.

It begins during the early days of the rebellion against the Holy Roman Empire’s rule, when quick rebel victories at Braunau and Burghausen forces the occupation army to react and stop the growing resistance at any cost. The Bavarian rebellion’s attempt to take back their country comes to a head in a bloody skirmish outside the walls of snow-covered Munich on Christmas Day.

Author Steve Burns infuses this historically accurate yet fictionalized tale with his fifteen years of experience living in Bavaria, Germany, and a passion for history and philosophy. The characters Passauer and Voltaire trade stories, ideas, and commentary that together create a compelling, thought-provoking, and emotional narrative. Through these pages, readers can join the band of Bavarian farmers and shopkeepers in their little-known fight against the Holy Roman Empire’s occupation in eighteenth-century Germany.

The Hidden Crown: Northland – 1166

by David Haworth

What would have happened if William of Normandy had lost the Battle of Hastings? What kind of nation would have been born if King Harald of Norway had conquered England instead? How different our history could have been if the wind had blown in the other direction for just one day in the summer of 1066.

The Hidden Crown is an alternate-history adventure that takes place a hundred years after such events. The country that would have become Norman England has split in two: the Anglo-Norse kingdom of Northland and the Saxon realm of Ã?ngland. The two nations have been at peace for nearly a century, that is until the dying king of Ã?ngland unexpectedly names his nine-year-old granddaughter, Adelise, as his heir. During her journey home to Ã?ngland through the wilds of Northland, the child-queen is rescued from a bloody assassination attempt by the young Northlandic soldier, Thurstan Ã?lfsson.

Now the two sole survivors of the attack must find safety and allies in a desperate flight across the two kingdoms, never knowing whether they are about to encounter friend or foe.

Hearts Versus Diamonds

by Catherine Stanford

This long-forgotten novella of the Victorian era was written by a remarkable woman, Charles E. Conrad’s mother-in-law, Catherine Elizabeth Stanford, née Coggan. Written during lean times after the death of her husband in an attempt to earn a little money to aid in her efforts to support her remaining family of three children — her eldest son having already left the nest and joined the Northwest Mounted Police — she had a difficult time getting the work into print.

Published at last in mid-1878, it provided but a modicum of income to the struggling widow. In her efforts to get the story published, she showed a determination that was not easily turned aside and had stood her in good stead in hard times. Initially serialized in a magazine, she saw it published in book form twenty years later, a testimony to her determination.

Hearts Versus Diamonds is a simple story and the product of its times. The plot is not overly complex, and revolves around the usual problems the heroine has in obtaining her one true love. It is not great literature by any means, but it is a pleasant story. Semi-autobiographical to some extent, it is deserving of preservation for the insight it gives into the mind of the woman who wrote it. Here is an aspect of the extended Conrad family never seen before, a peek past the usual story and into a little-known corner of the life of Alicia D. Conrad’s mother, a little bit of Victoriana all our own.

Too Jewish: The Next Generation

by Patty Friedmann

Formerly titled THE EXACT IMAGE OF MOTHER, this dark tragicomedy is the sequel to Patty Friedmann’s perennial kindle bestseller, TOO JEWISH.

THE NEW YORK TIMES called Too Jewish: The Next GenerationAn oddball debut novel: the strong point is its variety of distinctly rendered voices.”

“A trio of eccentric women and the city of New Orleans come vividly alive in this diverting debut, an entertaining coming-of-age novel â?¦ Quirky, irreverent and irresistible.” â??Publishers Weekly

Originally titled The Exact Image of Mother, Too Jewish: The Next Generation tells the darkly comic coming-of-age tale of heroine Darby Cooper, the only child of a Holocaust survivor father, who at 30 is still siphoning through a mountain of anger at a narcissistic mother and a quickly declining senile grandmother. Caught between the Cooper matriarchs and her hard-working father, Darby’s alienation isn’t helped by her discovery that her rich maternal grandparents could have saved her father’s mother from the concentration camps … but did not. Nor is she particularly “at home” in her hometown–always having felt an outsider in largely Catholic New Orleans, she feels estranged from the small, wealthy Jewish community into which she was born.

Family drama aside, 30 has another trick up its sleeve: a ticking biological clock. Darby decides she wants a child, so she goes about fulfilling this desire in typically madcap fashion. But it’s impending motherhood that makes Darby realize she must break with her own mother, leave New Orleans, and finally grow up.

“Her original quirky voice never falters, imbuing this novel with a very Southern, rich and comic singularity.” -Publishers Weekly

Patty Friedmann may be the greatest New Orleans author of the past quarter century. If you like New Orleans, if you’re interested in its Jewish community or Southern life or simply the rhythms of America’s most unique city, you’ll love Too Jewish. And even if you don’t give a hoot about NOLA and its Jews, buy Too Jewish for another reason: it’s a great read.” -Failed Messiah

“Walker Percy once wrote that ‘the next Southern literary revival will be led by a Jewish mother, which is to say, a shrewd self-possessed woman with a sharp eye and a cunning retentive mind who sees the small triumphs and tragedies around her and has her own secret method of rendering it, with an art all her own.’ And that is totally Patty Friedmann.” -Anne Gisleson, Signposts in a Strange Land

The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People (Illustrated)

by Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James’s Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play’s major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play’s humour, though some were cautious about its explicit lack of social messages, while others foresaw the modern consensus that it was the culmination of Wilde’s artistic career so far. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde’s most enduringly popular play.

currently lost in the throes of discovering what those two big words really mean.

These pieces are some snapshots seen through the lens of my heart’s camera, taken through time. I hope you enjoy them!

Barcelona: Must-see Attractions: Highlights of Spain’s Largest Coastal City

Barcelona: Must-see Attractions

Highlights of Spain’s Largest Coastal City

Barcelona, the second largest city of Spain and capital of Catalonia, is a vibrant and diverse city situated on the Mediterranean Sea. With tourism peaking during the summer months, Barcelona is a popular destination for a wide range of travelers. While many visitors enjoy relaxing on Barcelona’s picturesque beaches and dining on fresh seafood, all travelers are well advised to immerse themselves in the city’s magnificent cultural and architectural heritage. Since cultural practices broadly influence architecture, visiting a few historic sites can provide any tourist with a sense of regional immersion.

Although many of Barcelona’s architectural attractions charge a nominal fee for entry, tourists can immerse themselves in local cultures and customs through taking a tour of the city. With Barcelona’s dynamic and diverse cultural heritage, a bus tour or walk through the city can provide amazing architectural views. Small shops and even remnants of the 1992 Olympics can be viewed for free throughout the city. So come to Barcelona, hop on a bus, walk through the city streets, and enjoy the historical and architectural marvels!

Packed with photographs and illustrations, Rafting the Grand Canyon explains what to expect and how to prepare for the trip of a lifetime.

~ the oddball characters who have traveled through the Grand Canyon,

~ the wildlife that might be encountered,

~ the rock formations that will be encountered, and

~ the imminent threats to the Canyon’s very existence.

Included are fascinating stories about:

~ the one-armed Civil War veteran who explored the Colorado River while sitting in a chair;

~ an attempt to build a railroad through the Canyon;

~ a honeymoon couple who mysteriously disappeared while rafting in an unusual boat;

~ two men who swam the entire length of the Canyon because they could not afford a raft;

~ a horrific midair collision over the Canyon that led to vast improvements in aviation safety; and

~ proposals to dam the Colorado and flood the Canyon.

This guide even includes a glossary of “Grand Canyon” terms and an explanation of how one goes about getting a permit from the National Park Service for a noncommercial trip.

Whether you plan on taking a commercial or noncommercial raft trip through the depths of the “Great Unknown,” this book will enhance your experience.

Girl Behind Glass

by Abby Wilder

Sixteen year old Willow Stanton lives in a city under glass. There are no animals, no trees or plants, and very little food. People survive on nutrition pills and a substance called sustain.

Within Nuovo they believe that separating themselves from nature is the only way to protect the earth from the thing that damages it the most. People.

As Nuovo prepares to celebrate its fifteenth year sealed beneath the dome, Willow is caught in an everyday struggle. Her best friend, and son of the Governor of Nuovo, has fallen in love with her. A feeling which she doesn’t return. While caught up in this dilemma, Willow finds herself dangling from a rope, destined to be abandoned on the wrong side of the glass.

Once outside the city boundaries, she comes face to face with Mudders. People who choose to live on the outside rather than within the city walls. She is faced with a different way of life, a different belief system, and revelations that her life is not what she has been lead to believe.

When the two worlds collide, she is forced to choose between the life she has always known and believed to be right, and this new life, filled with people and places she had no idea existed.

Will she return to Nuovo?

Will she choose to stay and live as a Mudder?

Or will the choice be taken from her?

A YA Dystopian novel, Girl Behind Glass, is the first in a series from New Zealand author, Abby Wilder.

Three Worlds Collide, Unlikely Heroes Arise.

Over a remote northern forest, a small plane carrying five teenage friends flies into a freak storm. Struck by lightning, the aircraft crashes and the passengers find themselves cast into a life-changing adventure.

In a hidden valley, a mysterious people gaze at the stormy sky as a glowing object with fiery wings disappears behind a mountain ridge. The astonishing sight reignites an ancient prophecy foretelling the arrival of five chosen ones destined to become bearers of light against a dark storm gathering on humanity’s horizon.

In a distant city, a secretive organization led by a shadowy figure initiates a sequence of cataclysmic events designed to wreak havoc across the planet, beginning with a remote mining site in northern Canada.

As the three worlds collide, unlikely heroes arise. Armed with powers entrusted to them by the ancient prophecy and the resilience of their life-long bond, the five teens take a stand against a malevolent foe.

It is truly a classic in the making!” ~ Michael Beas – Bestselling Author of ‘Strump’ ~
