Punished at the Platinum Society: Working for the Secret BDSM Club (Natasha and the Platinum Society)

by Alicia Roberts

Natasha can’t help feeling aroused while she’s waitressing at the Platinum Society, an exclusive BDSM club.

The Doms at the club often wear a special scent, called Pheremones, which makes girls who are natural submissives feel wet and horny. Pretty soon, Natasha starts to feel frisky all the time, so she breaks the rules of working at the Platinum Society, and takes care of the frustration she feels.

Unfortunately, she gets caught on camera watching submissives being punished at the club, and pleasuring herself. So it’s her turn to be humiliated and punished thoroughly for her naughtiness…

This is Book 1 of Natasha’s adventures at the Platinum Society.


“Tell me, Natasha – are you affected by the Pheromones?”

Natasha realized that if she said yes, she’d lose her job, since they only hired girls who weren’t affected. She stammered nervously, afraid of lying to Hugh again, but seeing no other alternative. “N- no, sir.”

Hugh looked at her steadily and after a few long seconds he said, “Stand up.”

She stood up dutifully, smoothing down her skirt.

“Now hand me your panties.”

Natasha gasped in horror and stared at Hugh.

He raised an eyebrow. “Come on, I don’t have all day. If you’re not turned on by pheromones, your panties will be dry.”

Natasha felt her heart dropping like a rock. Why had she stopped wearing panties to work?

She blushed deeply and said, “I’m sorry sir. I’m not wearing any panties.”

Hugh frowned, a look of intense displeasure coming over his face. “Black panties are a part of the waitress’ uniform here. Why aren’t you wearing any?”

Natasha looked down at the floor, unable to find an answer.

He sighed. “You just love breaking the rules, don’t you?”

Natasha continued to stare at the floor and finally Hugh said, “Fine. If you’re aroused by pheromones, your nipples will be hard.”

Before she knew what was going on, Hugh reached over, unzipped her corset and pulled it off.

Doubling Down at the Ranch: The Double Penetration of a Cowgirl

by Brianna Spelvin

This sexy cowgirl just got back for summer vacation, and the eighteen year old beauty only wants to ride the horse she raised from a foal. That’s all she wants, that is, until she sees Hank and Jesse. Once that happens, there are two more rides she has in mind, and the cowboys are sure to oblige with hardcore double team sex, her first anal sex experience, and double penetration!

Warning: This ebook contains very explicit descriptions of sexual activity during an MMF threesome sex encounter between a cowgirl and two cowboys. It includes deep throat, double team sex, first anal sex, and double penetration. It is intended for mature readers who will not be offended by graphic depictions of sex acts between consenting adults.

Here is a preview:

When I heard Hank say, “Would you look at that!” I think the ride and my first look at the boys got the best of me because I moved closer to shore and stood up. The water came up to my navel, and their eyes were glued to me as water streamed off my hair (which I’m sure looked more strawberry than blonde because of how wet it was) and dripped over my breasts. I smiled up at them boldly and delighted in their stares. If my nipples hadn’t already been standing at attention, I’m sure they would have hardened right up.

He offered me ten; I said, “I’m your man, a bronc never lived that I couldn’t span.”

I stared at the boys and said, “What are you waiting for, cowpokes. The water’s cold, but I’m warm.” I knew that sounded corny, but it wasn’t like I was some kind of an expert at seduction, and it worked. They boys stripped faster than wildfire, and I breathed in sharply because both of them were a whole lot bigger than I would have thought. When they ran to the water’s edge and jumped in, I saw their dicks bouncing around, but it was neat because they were getting excited. By their horses, their cocks were soft. By the time they jumped in, they were hard as rocks.

He said: “Get your saddle, I’ll give you a chance”

In his buckboard we hopped and he drives to the ranch.

They didn’t waste any time swimming, but they splashed right up to me. Jesse got to me first, and his mouth was on mine right away. I kissed him, exploring his mouth with my tongue, as his hands moved under the water to grip my ass. Hank wasn’t far behind. He moved up behind me and kissed my neck as his hands roamed up to breasts and began caressing my nipples. We made out that way for a while until both men seemed to work together to move me to the shore, and then we were on the grass, a wet tangle of bodies that had me reeling.

Tara on the Prowl: A Stranger Sex Short

by Rita Feldspar

Tara needs a man, and she doesn’t have to get to know him. All she wants is a good, hard fuck; and she’s willing to take anyone with a penis to make it happen. When she sees a handsome man at the bar, she doesn’t waste any time at all. There’s no introduction, no breaking the ice. There’s a simple, “Do you want to fuck me?” and that’s that. He does, he does indeed, and the rough public sex that follows is scorching!

Warning: This ebook contains very explicit descriptions of sexual activity during a stranger sex encounter. It includes public sex, rough sex, oral sex, forced deep throat, and forced semen swallowing. It is intended for mature readers who will not be offended by graphic depictions of sex acts between consenting adults.

Here is a preview:

She looked over at the door as it was pushed open and her breath caught in her throat, there he was, the perfect man. He was about her age, maybe a few years younger but very well built with big hands and a swagger that made her knees shake.
He walked up to the bar and Tara slid up next to him. He glanced at her and smiled and Tara smiled back. She had no doubts that this man fancied her. After all Tara had looked after herself. She knew that she could make any man lust after her, and tonight she had pulled out all the stops. She wore a tight red dress, low cut with high hem designed to flaunt her best assets. Her pert breasts were pushed up in and practically spilling out of her top and her long legs were tanned and finished in high heels that made her ass stick out lewdly. Her long blonde hair fell in loose curls around her shoulders and she wore just enough makeup to let anyone know what her intentions were.
“Hi.” Said the stranger.
“Hello,” said Tara, “How are you tonight?”
“I’m fine thank you. And you?”
“Horny as hell.”
The stranger stared at Tara and his mouth fell open as Tara placed her hand on the small of his back.
“I am…” The man began but Tara stopped him.
“I don’t care who you are. I want you to fuck me, I want you to take me out back push me up against the wall and make me scream.” As Tara spoke she slid her hand round to the front of the stranger’s trousers and grabbed his bulge, her eyebrow rose. “Can you do that?”
“Damn right I can.”
“Good, then follow me.”

Alligators in the Trees

by Cynthia Hamilton

What is the common denominator between a down-and-out
architect and a ’90s rock legend? Priscilla, a hash-slinging waitress Frank’s
coffee shop on Manhattan’s Lower Eastside, where the food is only marginally
edible, the location less than desirable, and Frank’s temperament so volatile,
a ‘help wanted’ signs remains permanently on display.

Alligators in the Trees–a line in
one of Priscilla’s songs–symbolizes the bugaboos that lurk in the minds of all
three characters: in Tobias, the fear he’s lost his talent, and that his string
of model mistresses will be the downfall of his soul; in Philip’s guilt-ridden
conscious as he struggles with the collapse of his most touted building, and
the prospect of losing custody of his daughter if he doesn’t meet his estranged
wife’s demands; in Priscilla, the fear of actually making a decision about her
life instead of taking the path of least resistance. Fate intervenes and forces
the trio to act on their true desires.

Hollow Strength

by Art Keller


June, 2014. The world is shocked as Iran’s newest and most powerful destroyer, the Shaheed, explodes and sinks on its maiden voyage, killing a full cadre of VIPs, including a dozen of the most powerful clerics in Iran. The ship’s executive officer, Commander Mohsen Saeed of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, ashore during the explosion, frantically works to uncover the truth behind the sinking of his ship. Unfortunately for Saeed, learning that truth puts him and his family in grave danger; he is targeted by death squads who want him to carry the secrets he has unearthed to his grave. Meanwhile, accusations of blame for the sinking of the Shaheed bring the US and Iran to the brink of war. As the net of pursuit draws ever closer, CIA officers Joe Cerrato and Cynthia Banks struggle to get Saeed and his family out of Iran before they are caught and executed in cold blood. Full of authentic detail from an author who has served as a field officer in the Directorate of Operations of the CIA, Hollow Strength serves up a compelling picture of the Iran of tomorrow, and the perils of real world espionage operations.

Douglas Frantz, author of the bestselling “Nuclear Jihadist,” and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee describes Hollow Strength with just two words:

“Eerily accurate.”

Jeff Stein, author of ” A Murder in a Time of War,” veteran Washington Post journalist and “Spy Talk” blogger, says:

“Art Keller has definitely been there, done that. As a former CIA operative in the agency division responsible for tracking black market nuclear weapons, he has seen enough to make his hair stand up straight permanently, and in “Hollow Strength” he’ll make yours stand up, too.”

JM Le Duc of Suspense Magazine writes:

“In ‘Hollow Strength,’ Art Keller accomplishes two things: he tells a great story from the mind of one who has been in the â??business,’ and he has an uncanny knack of letting his reader know what Iranian culture is truly like. The story begins with the sinking of an Iranian naval vessel by its own government and the captain who figures out the plan. “Hollow Strength” centers on the proud Iranian Naval officer who realizes he is being used as a pawn by the Iranian government and his attempt to bring his family to the United States and the two American agents who devise an intricate plan to try and help him.
There is a lot of background information in the beginning, but once the action begins it is non-stop. It is a heart-throbbing thriller that will keep you glued to the page. If you enjoy espionage and are into the U.S./Iranian political tug of war, Art Keller’s “Hollow Strength” is a no brainer. You will love it.”

But her newly reordered life comes unraveled when she reluctantly accepts an invitation to a dinner party and stumbles upon the host’s dead body. Now Tess is in the middle of a murder investigation pitting her wannabe-boyfriend police detective against Jack Valentine, a man from her past with blue-green eyes and sinful smile that causes her to rethink her self-imposed celibacy. Tess has many reasons to avoid Jack including the fact that he’s the prime suspect in murder. But Tess doesn’t believe Jack is the murderer and with an honest attempt to keep her hormones in check, she agrees to represent him. With Jack’s help, she uncovers a 30 year-old secret someone is killing to keep hidden and discovers sensual delights that don’t include chocolate or French underwear. But when her professional and personal relationship with Jack threatens to ruin her career and end her life, Tess has to decide if Jack, is worth the risk.

John Gone (The Diaspora Trilogy)

by Michael Kayatta


Sixteen-year-old John has stumbled across an abandoned wristwatch half-buried in the sand behind his house. Curious, he places it on his wrist; to his surprise, it won’t come off.

Suddenly, each day at 3:14 P.M. John begins to uncontrollably teleport around the world. He might materialize anywhere–a burning African desert, a Canadian forest, even a Siberian prison–and must do what he can to survive until 3:14 A.M. when the watch takes him home again.

But John’s adventures come with a price …

When a scientist mysteriously trapped far below the surface of the Earth makes contact through a hologram in the watch’s face, John learns that his travels will eventually kill him. Soon, he’s faced with an impossible choice: continue to endanger his life by using the watch, or switch places with the scientist and risk losing his freedom forever.

Julie’s Passion Book 2: A Tale of Yearning and Death

by Elia Mirca

The Julie’s Passion Trilogy

This is a novel about the temptations of sensuality, but it also narrates the intimate feelings, the yearning and quest for love of a young woman. Some say it’s a romance, other say, it isn’t.
Whoever enjoyed ’50 Shades of Grey’, ‘Scandalous’ or the ‘This Man’ trilogy might fall in love with the erotic tension in this book as well.

Due to sexual content and the subject matter, this book is intended for ages 18+

It is tale about a man and a woman who try to find their role in life – sharing some common denominators: sensuality paired with the desire to succeed. But they are only to learn, in the course of their marriage, that this volatility of excitement was and will not be sufficient. Daniel is a conventional fellow who focuses on his career in the world of technology. Juliane, on the other hand, sees her marriage slipping away – no longer can she cope with her husband’s demands for sexual promiscuity to further his chances in his career; nor is she willing to further succumb to those ideas.
For many people, Juliane is considered a vixen – young, vibrant and blessed with her good looks. Only a few know that when men and women alike feel being physically attracted to her, it is recognition, self-affirmation and testimonial for her as a woman. Sex fulfills her needs and becomes her language of communication – perhaps a substitute for â??normal’ communication that she has not mastered yet. Her desire for comfort and closeness remains often unanswered, thus she must pay a high price for the path she has chosen.
Despite several relationships before her marriage, the young student Juliane is still a novice in matters of love. One day she stumbles into an affair with her husband’s best friend and this is the prelude to a rather erotic, but also crazy, story that will run her into great perils and wicked complications.
Her husband abandons her temporarily for a trip overseas. In her longing for comfort and partnership, she enters into yet another affair with an older gentleman. Little did she know that she has fallen victim to the man’s egotistical intentions. He uses her for his purposes and personal advantages. Sooner than later, Juliane ends up in California. This is where her life turns out to be as risky as back home, as she becomes entangled in a real case of murder.
Months later Juliane returns to her homeland – by herself – where she considered herself to be safe in the company of a former lover. But that turns out to be the wrong conclusion. Lo and behold, she needs to fight for her life and her freedom again.

Book 2:

Juliane finds ways to escape her pursuers in Cologne and now flees to her husband in California. For that she had to abort her university studies. Her prior sexual encounters had taken such a big toll on Juliane that her psyche was deeply hurt. But regardless, she will not confide into anyone. In her new homeland of California it is her husband who, for his professional aspirations and over ambitiousness, drives her into a new affair. Unrelated violence and abuse that she faces become part of her daily fears and anxieties. Again, Juliane needs to call her own shots while facing dangers that pale in comparison to the risks she was exposed to back in Cologne. She becomes deeply involved in crime and murder.

Window Thrills (Kassia)

by Trista Kerne

23 year old Kassia recently moved into her own highrise apartment. After hearing on the news about a huge approaching (and earth-endangering) comet, she purchased an awesome telescope with the intention of observing it live herself. However she got side-tracked because it was more than just the sky visible through the lens. Nudity viewable through the hundreds of windows facing from across caught her attention.

But Kassia soon discovered an even more exciting thrill – Exhibitionism!

With a sophisticated setup of video recording (and display) equipment she experimented and fine-tuned everything to get “live-feedback.” If she could be absolutely sure that others could see inside her apartment, then it would be time to try to be more daring. For Kassia, the feeling she experienced while being seen naked was truly intoxicating, and well worth the risks. A large hotel with balconies (directly across from her building) had new “targets” every day!

Opportunities to satisfy her overwhelming new sexual urges also materialized elsewhere. Kassia used her ingenuity to create incredibly arousing situations, but something was missing.

Then suddenly, an incident at work opened the door to a surprising new lesbian friendship with an equally open-minded friend. A chance to attend a birthday celebration came up. Kassia was extremely inexperienced about such things, however she did decide to go. At the party events started to spiral a little out of control. After she’d had a couple of drinks a violent thunderstorm unexpectedly knocked out the power. In the darkness a few males in the room didn’t waste time trying to take advantage of the unique situation…

Author Trista Kerne has created a richly detailed work of Erotic Fiction describing the sexual awakening of a smart and clever young lady. A delight to all of your senses awaits you in this beautiful odyssey chronicling her coming of age. The situations are well set up with descriptions which include feelings and thoughts along with sights, sounds and even smells…

Adult-content rating: This book contains sexually explicit content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

Early one morning while walking her dog, high-school English teacher Beatrice Ousterhout stumbles upon the body of a young woman at the edge of a field. The young woman’s left hand, bearing a distinctive tattoo of a peacock, has been amputated and left nearby.

The body is that of sixteen-year-old Amber Inglin, a promising young actress and honors student whom Beatrice has recently selected to play the lead in her spring theater production. The field belongs to Liam Walsh, a prominent lawyer and vintner, who also happens to be Beatrice’s daughter’s married lover.

Rather than dialing 9-1-1 and reporting the body to emergency services, Beatrice calls her daughter–Jes is a Deputy Detective at the Tompkins County Division of Criminal Investigation. Twenty minutes later, Jes arrives on the scene and the consequences of the tragic event begin their rise toward the surface.

Marriages, friendships, sibling and parent-child relationships, are permanently altered as a result of the truths brought to light in the course of the investigation. The story is told from six distinct points of view, which permits a first-hand and multifaceted exploration of the ripple effects of a young girl’s violent death in the life of a small university town in upstate New York.

The novel is concerned with the past, and especially with characters’ connections to, and attitudes toward, their own pasts. Jes’s relationship with her deceased ornithologist father is at the root of much of the action, both physical and psychological. Mothers are also key, and there is a touch of magical realism in the interactions between Waldo, one of the six primary characters, and his deceased mother.

In a word, THE SCIENCE OF BIRDS is concerned with secrets, both those we keep from others and those we keep from ourselves.

by Justin Dennis

When Jem and Oliver accidentally fall through a portal to another world just before their first year of high school, they quickly discover that all is not well here. The first person they meet, a creepy old man named Atychis, almost gets them killed by a ferocious, fire-breathing dragon. They’re only narrowly saved when Sierra, a shy farm girl from a nearby town, uses illegal magic to help them escape. Allowed to stay with her family while they try to figure out a way back home, Jem and Oliver begin to learn of magic and the Regime that is oppressing it.  
It isn’t until the Regime kills a woman that the three kids realize they have to do something to stop the Regime from taking over completely. After being framed for a crime they didn’t commit and banished from the town, Jem, Oliver, and Sierra take off on an adventure across this strange world in an attempt to defeat the Regime. New creatures and new kinds of magic are around every corner, but so are dangers that could have them wishing they were back safe at home. 
Through the Portal is approximately 104,000 words and is the first in a trilogy.
One of the unique characteristics within Through the Portal is the use of sylph, a physical manifestation of magic that allows the user to manipulate it however they need while exerting minimal energy. Sylph makes transportation available through sylphcycles and sylphquads, and is just one of the exciting new concepts explored in this magical and complex world.

Rent a Teenage Daughter 1: Attitude

by Jack Stratton

The first in the Rent a Teenage Daughter Series. Be sure to check out Rent a Teenage Daughter 2: BFF.
Mark had been watching the teenage minx from the mall for weeks. He couldn’t get her out of his mind with her huge eyes, goth outfits and fake cat ears poking up from her black hair. When he found out she was in financial trouble he did what any nice man would do, he offers her money for sex.

Will the young girl give in to his twisted bargain? What about when she learns there is even more to Mark’s offer than meets the eye? Will she be willing to be his little “Rent a Daughter?”

The first in a new series of ebooks about kinky sex and perverse role playing, Rent a Teenage Daughter is sure to please!

Here is a sample:

“Listen Megan, I’m going to the bathroom. While I’m in there I want you to take off your panties and sit on the couch. If I come back and your panties aren’t sitting on my coffee table, then I will take that to mean you don’t want the $1000 and I will make sure you get home. Okay? Negotiation over,” and with that Mark walked to the bathroom and Megan was alone in his living room.

There was a pang of something in his chest when Mark looked at himself in the mirror as he washed his hands. It wasn’t guilt, it was fear. If she left then she would have no reason not to tell someone. At the least he wouldn’t be able to go back to his favorite bookstore. At most he was going to jail.

When he opened the door he could see her just sitting down on the couch again. On the table was a little ball of purple cotton.

Walking closer he saw that the ball wasn’t her panties, but her socks and that she was fumbling with a garter belt. She looked up at him in surprise.

“Um, it’s yes, I mean, I’m just, I couldn’t get my garter belt off. It keeps up my socks.”

There she sat with her panties at her knees, unsure of what to do. Mark looked down at her and then looked down at the panties around her knees and laughed.

“Well, they’re mostly off. I’m going to accept it.”

Kneeling down in front of her, he pushed her legs up so that she was sitting back on the couch with her legs in the air, knees held together by the panties.

He slipped one hand down her firm young thighs, noting how tan she was. Then, as his eyes moved up her thighs, he saw that that tan came to an abrupt stop at her crotch. His fingers slipped across her tan line.

Waiting For Us

A rollicking quick read! It’s “Master and Commander” meets “Star Wars” with a liberal dash of “Debbie Does the Royal Navy”. In 1815 a British naval squadron gets mistakenly whisked off to another planet and lands right in the middle of an intergalactic war. Things get interesting when the Brits ally with the League of Nations’ energy beings, who take on human female form to “get along” with all the English sailors. Will the Royal Navy ships save the cosmos from the giant flesh-eating Draesh? Will the decorum of proper British officers descend into the gutter thanks to the inviting female aliens? Seems there’s never a dull moment for the displaced humans,with plenty of thundering ships’ broadsides, help from some sharpshooting Americans, and dashing swordplay pitting high-born British officers against viciously stabbing crabmen. Whether you like historical fiction, fantasy, bawdy comedy, or just a wild crazy read, this is definitely one unforgettable tale.

THE GARDEN PARTY (rhyming, bedtime, reading, children, kids, short, stories Stories)

by Peter Collier

This story amuses the reader by setting ample action and imagery.
It includes riddles that should only appear within the illustrations.

It offers important lessons such as:

– Not to Trespass, no matter how thick the bushes and grass.

– A primary lesson is the suggestion that humour can be disarming.

It’s difficult to forget what happens to a garden, when left to grow old.

Ideal for a bedtime read.

If you like this one, other stories like ‘Cross Your Fingers’, ‘Everyone has a Name’, ‘Gingersnap Dragons’, ‘Foggy Daze’, or ‘Sick Again’ you will find great for family laughs.
Alternatively, I have several fully illustrated stories, like ‘Monsters I Know’, ‘Kids I Know’, ‘Hector the Collector’, or ‘Marmalade Jam and Chocolate Eclairs’,and some others that are simply magical to experience, like ‘The Immovable Rock’ or ‘The Very Last Apple’…these are the feel-good kind of bedtime stories that everyone looks for when reading to children. The best illustrations are often inside the imaginations of children.

My stories are designed for both the reader and the listener.
Children will request parents to re-read, over and over again, a story that has caught their imagination.
If not in rhyme, these stories will quickly become dull and a burden to read.
When written in free verse, a story is both a delight to read and to hear.
The reader feels accomplished when reading my stories and, in the act of story telling, begins exaggerating tone, inflection, and mood.

When constructed in free verse rhyme, while reading along, children quickly begin to retain portions of each story.
Once the child begins reading independently, these stories act as memory assisting templates to guide the beginning reader through their first reading selections. The reading successes of a child will fuel additional comprehension activities and help to jump start reading skills that greatly motivate the young reader.

For the adult reader these stories are always a treat.
I understand the necessity to include a readers interests and needs as part of the story telling activities.

The length of these stories is designed to be between 10 to 15 minutes, to act as a short break or bedtime activity. Unlike Dr. Suess, I have avoided making up new nouns and adjectives for purposes of rhyme,
other than some tintinnabulation (words designed to give greater description of sounds), finding that teachers do not appreciate this activity.

I find that by identifying children by full name, as the story characters, it adds a sense of character reality and identity. The children accept the diversity of people, which, in turn, opens the imagination to accepting limitless fictional situations and opportunities.

My stories constitute several conceptual elements to motivate reading and precipitate a positive child’s reading development.

For all teachers and Friends, I applaud your support in exposing free verse reading to young children. Your efforts to improve early perceptions of reading will provide children with a foundation for continued learning comprehension and development.

5.0 out of 5 stars “Gripping Read”, 23 Jan 2012
By Cookie M on

“I downloaded this book onto my Kindle and it was free at the time so I thought why not? Well, it was a fabulous read, I found it gripping all the way through and found it very irritating when I had to stop reading after my lunch break at work! The only thing I would say is that is rather gory and leaves very little to the imagination but definitely worth a read.”

After she had cum Jessie fell back into the water and floated on her back. Her orgasm had been more than satisfying, it had been spectacular. She had never experienced an anal orgasm before, guys were too impatient and too rough. Luke had been perfect. She was having a very hard time fitting him into one of the cowboy molds she had constructed to characterize the men she had slept with. She had grown up fast after her parents had died. She had fucked whoever she wanted to, whenever she had wanted to, and on more than one occasion had bartered her body for food and a place to stay. It didn’t bother her, she had accepted it as a fact of life. Luke was differentâ?¦good different, but she wasn’t sure why. All she knew was she needed this man’s approval, she wanted to stay on the Bar C to be near him.
He was standing under the waterfall, using it like a shower, and she noticed that he carried scarsâ?¦scars that looked like bullet holes. There was one in his ba

Costumes and Filigree: A Novel of the Phantom of the Opera

by Dayna Stevenson

Christine Daae, a singer at a famous opera house in 19th century France, is horrified to discover that her mentor, whom she believed to be an angel, is really a man disfigured enough to pass for a monster.

Shadows Gray

by Melyssa Williams

Sonnet Gray has problems, and not just those of a typical 18 year old. Her family is one of the Lost; time travelers who have no power over their journeys. Hopelessly old fashioned and yet more modern than most girls, Sonnet speaks several languages and takes care of her motley crew back home by working in a coffee shop and playing guitar. Over time, the Lost leave behind those they love and pick up new characters along the way. In twenty-first century America, Sonnet meets Emme, a Lost young woman with a questionable line of work, Luke, a mysterious photographer, and Israel, a young doctor . But no one can take the place of Sonnet’s sister, Rose, who was left behind as a baby in the fifteenth century. The ghost of her beckons from each time and place; but what’s real and what isn’t? Is Rose Gray trying to contact her before it’s too late?

A ghost story with a sci-fi, Gothic romance twist, Shadows Gray will keep you up at night, wondering: is the redemptive power of love enough to change history?

Francisquillo “The Mad” Cervantes was a real figure mentioned very briefly in historical records. He was a jester and a dwarf known for a malicious wit, who accompanied Cortes on his Conquest of Mexico. Written from the perspective of the sarcastic dwarf in the style of a mock adventure yarn this assiduously researched tale captures both the wonder and the horror of two civilizations meeting for the first time. It is the year 1519. Hernan Cortes and his ragtag army of five hundred Castilian adventurers and malcontents arrive on the shore of Moctezuma’s vast Aztec empire. What begins as an adventure born of a simple lust for gold, turns into something much greater when it is discovered that the have initially mistaken him for the ancient god/king, the fair-skinned Quetzacoatl, long rumored to return to these very shores. Determined to avail himself of this uncanny luck, Cortes destroys his ships and marches to the capital.We follow this mad journey inland as Cortes and his party forge alliances with outlying chiefs and build a series of unlikely victories until they find themselves ruling over Moctezuma’s capital – Tenochtitlan – the most beautiful city in the world at that time. At their feet is the treasure of an empire. How they win this empire, lose it and then regain it by destroying the very thing they desired, is one of the great stories of human history. Francisquillo’s unique voice captures this epic tale in all its richness, its bawdy humor and, ultimately, its tragedy.

The Rabbit Died (Holidays From Hell short story series)

by Sue Ann Jaffarian

Zelda Bowen isn’t big on family holidays, but this Easter has all the makings of a world-class disaster. Her father has recently run off with the bimbo at his office, leaving behind the question: who will wear the Easter Bunny costume and pass out the baskets to the kids? A job that, until this year, was always his.

This humorous yet touching story opens with Zelda and her sisters arguing over who should wear the bunny suit and carry on the family tradition. To the delight of her nieces and nephew, Zelda dons the costume, while her mother, toked-up on medicinal marijuana, shoots daggers at the oversized bunny. As emotions and antics ramp up, the day becomes one of those memor-able “holidays from hell” many of us have experienced.

The Rabbit Died is the first short story in the Holidays From Hell series by best-selling author Sue Ann Jaffarian. Visit for more information about upcoming stories in the series and other full-length works by the author.

The Portal

by Joerg Meier

An oval sphere of light opened up, with the glass object in its center. The light was still red, but the humming sound had stopped. The oval was about two meters in diameter, much taller than Leo was. Bucky turned around and looked at Leo, barked again at the light and walked closer towards it. As soon as he touched it, it turned green, and to Leo’s surprise Bucky was gone.

Leo rubbed his eyes, staring at the light. It had changed back to red but it was still there. Bucky was nowhere to be seen. “What had just happened?” Leo thought even more scared than before, but he was also overwhelmed with curiosity. He walked towards the light. He wasn’t sure but didn’t he just hear a familiar bark?

In “Into the Light” nine year old Leo and his bernese mountain dog Bucky embark on the adventure of their lifetime when Leo accidently opens a Portal that leads him and his friend into a very different universe.

Suddenly alone, Leo and Bucky are stuck in the middle of an ancient struggle. They have to fight droids and rock monsters, find a way back home and most importantly, help to save the universe.

“A clever sci-fi
story”, “action packed suspense”, “fun read” and “an author to watch” are just
a few of the reviews for “Into the light” –
a must read for Kids Age 8-14.

Secrets of Silverwind

by Richard Sanders

The world might have ended five years ago. For the second time. Had Caythis not raced to Andar City to stop the one man who could destroy everything. Antares. The man with the power of a god. The man whose fiery inferno reduced Andar to ashes. The man who’d already annihilated a fourth of the human race. Caythis fought him on the cliffs of Andar. Fought to save the world. They both vanished. Their bodies were never found.

The remnants of Antares’ revolution live on, like embers refusing to die. Tormenting an already broken world. One savaged by starvation, terrorism, vigilantism, and most of all fear. Fear of Antares’ return.

An unknown soldier finds himself pulled into the nexus of the turmoil. Factions vie for his allegiance, mixing truths with lies. His memories are clouded. His past a mystery. But the world remembers him as Caythis. And he must uncover the truth of his own disappearance if he is to restore order to the world. It is a twisted path of deception and betrayal. One that forces him to realize…

Sometimes the darkest truths are best kept secret.

Once there, it forces you to reassess your perceptions of good and evil – right and wrong. Then, and only then will it allow you to slip back to the reality we call â??today’.

Media in all forms has been deluged the last several years with multiple takes on vampires, werewolves, and the paranormal. â??The Eleventh Universe’ does not follow that path, nor does it ride that wave. It is a uniquely compelling tale that not only depicts one possible birth of our universe, but more importantly, allows you to closely follow the celestial journey of a close-knit band of powerful metaphysical beings who find themselves at great odds dealing with the raw human-like emotions they have been given. The time is ripe for you to discover â?¦ â??The Eleventh Universe’.

Chloe’s engaged! To a man who hasn’t actually proposed.
Chloe’s getting married! To a man who is increasingly distant, aloof, unavailable.
Chloe’s married! To a man who “dips his sherbet stick in other women’s candy”
Chloe’s getting divorced! From a man whose sherbet stick she hasn’t seen in ages.
Chloe’s got a new life!
Chloe’s a high class hooker!
Chloe’s being flown to new places but leaving more and more of herself behind.
Chloe’s having fun!
Chloe’s losing her mind!
Chloe is……gone.

DON’T FORGET TO TAKE A LOOK AT UH-OH! THE SECOND ‘CHLOE’ INSTALMENT (sorry – but rather a lot of people asked for another book. I know!!)

This book contains absolutely no granny sex (i.e.: if you are middle aged and after a cheeky rumble with yourself – ala 50 shades – this book isn’t for you) It does however contain mild references to pen*ses, so maybe that might get you going. But overall this book really is utter twaddle. I say that because I wrote it. For some reason it was a mild success when it was released as paperback almost 10yrs ago and it appears that a handful of people still think its OK, which is great and I’m thankful for that. Alas, I think its tosh and you’ll be hard pressed to get your rocks off to it. Happy reading and much love, Chloe x

He stood still as he could feel Rachel’s gloved hands gently caress his body, moving over his arms, chest neck and to run through his hair. He could smell her perfume and as her hands explored his form he was beginning to have problems keeping his balance. As he stood up as well as he could he felt her begin to unbutton his shirt and remove it over his shoulders to fall to the floor.
“Very nice.” she whispered in an aroused tone and then Carl first felt her hair on his chest then her lips.
Carl reached out to touch her but Rachel seized his forearms and kept them at his side. Carl breathed in hard from her controlling gesture but for some reason it turned him on more than it bothered him. Her mouth kissed his chest and she bit gently on his left nipple and then sucked it in hard. Carl hissed at the slight pain that coursed through him but it wasn’t unpleasant. His hands clenched into fists and Rachel moved away from him. He stood alone in the darkness of the blindfold and then felt Rachel take his hands again. She brought them together around to his front and Carl felt a soft rope begin to tie his wrists.
“Do you trust me, Carl?” Rachel said in a more concerned for his well being tone than one of dominance.
“Yes.” was his reply even though he sounded nervous.
“From this point on,” Rachel spoke in a more authoritative tone binding his hands in a firm but yet non constrictive way, “you refer to me as ma’am or mistress! Do you understand?”
Rachel grabbed Carl’s testicles firmly and squeezed, “Yes, What?” She demanded
“Yes Mistress!” was his submissive answer.
“Well well, Carl,” Rachel said releasing her grip to a more gentle stroke up and down Carl’s hard on, “I see you’re all ready for me.”
“Yes, Mistress.”
Carl could feel Rachel press herself against his body and felt her face mere inches from his. “Well guess what, Carl. I am going to tease you til you are fit to burst,” Rachel’s hot sweet breath was on his lips, “you will make me cum as many times as I tell you to make me cum and only when I tell you too. You WILL only cum when I tell you too and if you cum too soon you will be punished. Do you understand?”
“Yes Mistress.”
“Good boy.” Rachel purred as she began removing Carl’s shoes, pants and boxers. Once he was completely naked standing in the center of Rachel’s bedroom with an erection that could knock down a building He could feel Rachel

Jane Johansen has carefully crafted a seemingly-perfect life. She’s blessed with an adoring husband, Edward, two unwavering (albeit opposite and bickering) best friends, a powerful corporate job, and a high-security penthouse. On the fateful day our story begins, however, everything changes. Jane is unceremoniously fired, Edward’s revered father abruptly dies, and our heroine’s painstakingly-built world starts crashing down around her. Despite the obvious (to her) fact that it will be disastrous, Jane is cajoled into moving cross-country with Edward to his North Carolina hometown, to settle into suburbia surrounded by his large, extended brood. Although Jane is perversely fascinated by this world of happy families and movie set-perfect homes, she knows full well that she can never fit in here. The problem is she has never explained the facts of her life to Edward. Moving south does provide Jane the chance to escape the shadows of her past: her time-warped mother who hasn’t recovered from Jane’s father’s death over twenty years ago, the trauma of her college years that has left her scarred, and her terrifying recently-paroled ex-boyfriend. Most haunting is Jane’s oldest and worst friend, who has been trying to track her down with the determination of a bloodhound. Edward travels the world on business while Jane flounders in suburbia. She attempts to keep up appearances but is tormented by guilt and fear. Just when she feels there’s no way out, Jane is offered a chance at the life she has always wanted, but first she must confess her secret. In telling Edward the truth, Jane knows she could lose the love of her life – or gain the world. Weaving the defining moments of a woman’s past into the suspenseful unraveling of her present, SETTLING is a poignantly compelling story of love, family, and the search for truth.

66 Plots Updated – Part 1 (Updating Classic Literature with Modern Technology)

by Mark Needham

Would Tess of the D’Urbervilles have led a happier life if she had been able to send text messages? Would Anna Karenina have avoided suicide if she had been able to bitch about Vronksy on Twitter? And would Jane Fairfax have looked foolish asking Frank Churchill “I beg of you, please delete all my texts”?

Would E.M. Forster would have been able to connect if he had used Facebook? Would Gatsby be as great if he had just cut his hair and changed his profile name? Would Google Earth have spotted the Diamond as Big as the Ritz? Could Skype have saved the career of Thomas Cromwell? The answers are all in 66 Plots Updated.

66 Plots Updated looks at the effect which new technology might have had on the literature of the great tradition, and asks if these gadgets could have made a difference to the lives of famous fictional characters.

Typically, the issue of whether new technologies have made us happier is approached with surveys, most of which seem to be sponsored by someone with a vested interest. To answer the question “Does Facebook increase or decrease isolation?”, for example, researchers asked a panel of 1200 users a number of questions about their feelings of loneliness and isolation. Their conclusion:”We discovered that the more people use social networks, the better they feel.” But as these researchers were paid by Facebook, what else did could they be expected to report?

Part 1 of 66 Famous Plots Updated with Modern Technology looks at the happiness of individuals, by looking at the plots of some of the greatest works of literature of all time, and wondering what would have happened had mobile phones, messaging and social networks existed at the time they were written.

And behind the humour there is a serious point. Many romances must have been saved by a well timed text message. The ability to communicate a small fact, a word of thanks, or of apology or regret, instantly, across oceans, with an extraordinary degree of accuracy must have changed more lives than we can ever know.

Jane Fairfax and Frank Churchill from Emma,
Jean de Florette,
Manon des Sources,
Romeo and Juliet,
Anthony and Cleopatra,
West Side Story,
Jane Eyre,
The Go-Between,

Bloody Rain is a short story set on a sailing ship in the 1880s.

If she had a single great flaw, it was on her quarterdeck in the man that the owners had chosen as captain.

Captain John McPherson maintains absolute control over his ship and those who sail upon her. The only one that he cannot control is himself, slipping into murder and madness in the face of the relentless monsoon.

The Ophelia Trap (The Julia Henry Mysteries)

by Kate Burns

Julia and her family may have escaped the rent trap… but curiosity has drawn a predator home.

When Julia Henry’s former neighbour plunges eight stories to her death in the snow, she’s convinced her previous landlords harassed the woman to suicide. But as she investigates, another dead girl turns up with a connection to a serial rapist.

Julia and her husband have put as much distance as they could afford between them and the landlords who put them through hell, and stories from humiliated tenants match Julia’s own. She’s determined to prove their tactics resulted in tragedy. But the half-empty building is hemorrhaging tenants, the girl’s boyfriend comes complete with a wife and daughter, and the best friend overdosed days after giving police their only description of a serial rapist.

Now it seems someone wants Julia buried under the heaviest blizzard in thirty years. But when one of her daughters is targeted for a brutal attack steps from home, two nightmares converge. 

The only way she can protect her girls and still live to see the snow melt is to expose the wrenching truth behind the rapes, the deaths, and the strangest absentee landlord ever.

The Ophelia Trap tells the story of a woman who drags home more than she bargained for after investigating the death of a young neighbour.

The setting is the small town that remains within the Aylmer city limits, and many of the landmarks and the dual French-English culture will be familiar to Ottawa area residents.

The novel engages the reader in suspense, but also delves into some dark territory — rent fraud, sexual abuse and the fragile safety of women in modern society. The Ophelia Trap turns the narrative of of the ultimate victim on its head.

“Juicy, fantastically polished, engrossing, unrelenting in its ability to hold the reader. This book stands out as an example of what an exceptionally good writer should be.”
Paul Dayton, Author of The Eye of the Idol

What Celia Knows

by Donna Patrick

As Cecelia Mahaffey approaches the last half of her junior year in high school in the spring of 1974, she catches a glimpse of a problem between her younger sister Marie and their high strung mother one day after school. Celia knows it’s not just any argument, especially when she witnesses an unusual exchange between Marie and a neighbor that leaves Celia a bit unnerved. As Marie’s behavior becomes increasingly bizarre at home, causing tension in her family, tension also builds for Celia at school when a sister cheerleader reveals a shocking secret and at the same time Celia’s boyfriend John begins to pressure her for more intimacy in this, his senior year of high school. Celia is well aware that once school ends she’ll be saying goodbye to John and many of the people she loves and relies on. What she doesn’t know is that as the year progresses, she’ll also be losing her sister Marie and the stability of her once-close family.

Everything is changing for her; home, relationships, all the things she used to find fun. Her life falls apart, and she begins to wonder if it ever be normal again. It’s enough to make any teenager go off the deep end, and Celia is no exception. The question is whether she’ll be able to find a way through the guilt, the turmoil, the unrelenting waiting…Will they ever find Marie? Will her parents survive this crisis? Will John stand by her, or will she lose him too?

What Celia knows is that life can change in an instant, and that sometimes you find strength in the least expected places, comfort from the people you least expect and love in many forms . How she learns this is the journey of her lifetime; a wild and sometimes heartbreaking ride.

The MacCollum and Campbell Clans are bitter enemies, especially for the son of the Laird MacCollum, Rory, the fabled and lethal Wolf of the Highlands. When his betrothed is killed at the hands of his enemies, Rory has sworn vengeance on all named Campbell. Darkness pervades this warrior to the point of poisonous destruction. Each day the darkness creeps forth, changing him and embattling his psyche. Each day, the blackness is becoming harder and harder to quell. Only Love can save him from the impending darkness, but his heart is walled.
After years of self enforced exile in England, Rory returns to Scotland to seek his own destiny. On his journey, Rory aids and rescues a young woman who is broken and battered from a terrible accident. Rory knows he has to save her. In saving her, is it possible to save himself? His heart gradually opens, only to find this woman is his most sworn and hated enemy. Amid lies and betrayal, can Brielle’s love save Rory from the Darkness that seeps through his veins? Can her love prevent him from the self destructive course he has been destined to run?

“Love and Passion transcends time and space in this dramatic tale set amid harsh Medieval realitiesâ?¦”
“Supernatural forces bring bitter enemies together in this epic Highland romanceâ?¦”
“Can the seeds of love flourish in the bloodstained soil of Medieval Scotland where warring clans are divided by hatred?”

About the Author:
Ria Cantrell lives with her English rock star husband on the sunny shores of Southwest Florida. When she is not writing, Ria is busy singing and performing with her husband in local venues. She is a classically trained vocalist with a specialty in baroque and early music, but she can “rock” out with the best of them. Her dreams came true when she met her husband Paul in 2010 after speaking to him via internet for nearly three years. They married in May, 2012. Ria would say that their love story was as good as the fictional ones you read and in fact, she may tell it in one of her upcoming books. Ria has always been drawn to the distant past and so it seemed only fitting that Celtic Fury was set on a medieval stage. She began writing at a very young age and one would rarely find her without her trusted notebook scribbling her romantic musings. She hopes you enjoy the Celtic Saga with the Clan MacCollum at the forefront. Look for her prequel, Celtic Tempest, which should be completed by February. Celtic Traveler, is already in the works where the present, past and future collide.

Demons [ACHUKAbooks]

by Bill Nagelkerke

What demons sit on YOUR shoulder?

Andrea McNamara, daughter of Catholic parents with a lifetime of ‘protest’ behind them, and granddaughter of an Irish matriarch, has finished university and is looking forward to starting her new life.

But then she meets Chris, her former boyfriend, and self-styled classics geek and atheist.

The meeting prompts Andrea to look back at her her final year at high school when she met Chris for the first time and when her life began to change in ways both challenging and unexpected.

This brief but powerful (and expertly constructed) novel is at once a love story and an acknowledgement of the part belief systems of various kinds (religious and pagan) still play in the lives of an ostensibly secular pair of young lovers.

Bill Nagelkerke, from New Zealand, has a highy distinctive voice and approach to constructing his fiction. ACHUKAbooks launched its digital list with THE FIELD, Bill’s short novella about a girl who is visited by Marian apparitions. We’re delighted to be publishing a second and longer work by him now.

An Ever Fixéd Mark

by Jessie Olson

Lizzie Watson ran away from a broken heart into a new dress size. Not quite the finish line she imagined for her 15 year high school reunion. Close enough, though, to attract Ben Cottingham away from her perfectly beautiful, married with children, former best friend. Their subsequent tryst fuels her determination to run off those last twenty pounds. To run off the irritation with her fallible heart and its unexpected fixation on Ben’s green eyes. She runs right into his path and finds he isn’t just the boy who pined after her friend in high school. In fact he wasn’t a boy at all, but something entirely different. A different type of human that never ages, never gets ill, and needs the blood of another human to stay that way.

But thatâ?¦ that is almost something she knew all along and was just waiting to hear so they could move on to the next step. It is a relatively easy shift to accept the reality, but a challenge to live the minor details. Ben will never appreciate her culinary talents. She already has gray hairs and has to keep training to make her blood healthy and desirable. Her peers settle down to start families – an option that leaves the table when committing to a vampire.

Or are these just excuses to keep running? Sort of. There is always something, something at the edge of her brain she knows she must understand before she can let herself feel completely. Something in the story of a missing girl from her hometown, something in the silences about his brother, something in the dreams that distort her present with a past before she was born. A past she must understand to stop running and fleeing from the consequences of her own inhumanity.

The Book of Daniel (Closed Up and Sealed Until the Time of Fulfillment)

by Russell Stendal

The Book of Daniel is a study, a commentary, of the book of Daniel in the Bible. Each verse and each sentence is dissected to unveil great prophesies which are coming to fruition today. It cannot be over-emphasized how relevant this book is to our current generation. The book of Daniel covers everything from the sorry state of today’s denominations, to corrupt governments whom will not be changed before the end of the world as we know it. Many devastating things which will come to pass are clearly defined in this book. However, Daniel doesn’t stop here. We, the children of God, are shown the beautiful way of a true Christian’s life, as modeled by Daniel himself. We truly are blessed and must give all glory to God for His generous gift of salvation, through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Each verse in the Biblical Book of Daniel is studied in depth, in the same order as presented in the Bible. The author defines words and phrases typically ignored and expounds on the prophetic times and seasons well documented by Daniel. These prophecies are clear and undisputable, and as the author points out, Christ intended that we know about the times and seasons so we can watch for His return. This book is originally taken from a series of messages by Russell Martin Stendal, while in Colombia, South America. Originally written in Spanish, this book was later translated into English to encourage Christians in the western world.

About the Author
Russell Stendal was born in Minneapolis and raised on the mission field in Colombia, South America. He became a missionary jungle pilot at age nineteen. Almost ten years later he was kidnapped in 1983 by Marxist rebels and held hostage for five months. His book, Rescue the Captors, relates his experience, including how God worked in the hearts of the rebels.

Russell has written many other books, produced videos, and edited two Bible translations, the Spanish Reina-Valera 2000 and the Jubilee Bible in English.

Russell heads up the work of Colombia Para Cristo which operates 12 radio stations involving over 100 staff and coworkers and covering much of Latin America with the Gospel. A thriving underground church has developed in remote jungle areas of Colombia. New high gain antennas are now beaming the Gospel message deep into areas of deepening crisis across the borders of Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil as well as throughout Colombia.

“No other personal account of contemporary Laos is as informative, under-the-surface and well written.”
— Joe Cummings, author of Lonely Planet Laos

“A must for anyone looking to understand Laos today.”

Brett Dakin spent two years working in Vientiane, Laos and returned to the States a changed man. In Another Quiet American, he takes you through the corridors of power and into the living rooms of Laos.

You’ll meet his boss, a wealthy general whose power and reputation scares his countrymen; a prince with connections to the French colonial past; an American pilot who left home for Indochina during the war and never returned; and rich Lao twenty-somethings who have all the money they could want, but have yet to find happiness.

Dakin provides a sympathetic yet irreverent glimpse into life in one of the world’s few remaining communist nations, questioning the United States’ influence on the country and embarking on the soul-searching journey of a young American abroad.

“A witty, personal account … through the eyes of a young American among raucous expats in Vientiane.”

Opposing Nassir is Terry Sanders, the pastor of a small church in Lansing, Michigan and one of a select few given a plan by God to survive the imminent Tribulation Period. Sensing the Rapture is near and fearing persecution, he marshals his church into hiding to await the Coming of the Lord, but soon finds himself at the epicenter of a global spiritual revival and becomes the target of demonic destruction and angelic protection.

Experience epic spiritual warfare across the natural and supernatural planes as told from the perspectives of the angels, demons and people vying for the souls of humanity.

“Now that I finished the novel, I find myself drawn back to scripture reading the Book of Daniel and Revelations. Benjamin Reynold’s description of heaven was over the top fantastic; it has stuck with me in the days since I finished his novel. I found his interpretation of the events surrounding the end-of-times creative and thought provoking. I’m definitely glad I spent the time reading his new novel.” Joanna, Book Reviewer for The IE Mommy

The Fire Gem (Gemstone Series, Epic Swords & Sorcery Fantasy, Book 3)

by J Gordon Smith

“Koren stood and slowly turned in the smoky dust from the shattered throne, her swords still ringing from their violence. She growled behind eyes flaming with battlefield ferocity, “We will have no more sitting – We Go To WAR!””

Victory in the violent Kelvin Arena sowed envy and filled the tribal leaders with contempt against the savage warrior Koren. While scarcely believing a human could best the fearsome eight armed kelvin gladiators, they grudgingly gave her blades uneasy respect.
But now strange enemies wielding ancient magic murder whole villages of the mighty kelvin without a breath of resistance. Koren urgently seeks salvation from the magic with the ancient Sword of Aleron – a broken blade scattered across the dangerous Swamps of Kal at the end of the last Great War – and it must be forged anew in the fires that made it.
Attacked by nightmarish creatures and pursued by relentless teams of Rubied Assassins can Koren save the kelvin from slaughter? Will treasonous kelvin leaders betray her when confronted by old emotions, ancient enemies, and a War now unearthed? Can she forge the chaotic tribes into a single force to repel the impending menace? And what are the disturbing visions seething within her Fire Gem – an ancient Destiny she cannot escape?

A compelling and poignant exploration of one woman’s grief, this debut novel moves us to ask ourselves how well we really know those with whom we are most intimate.

ReMission Possible; Yours, If You Choose To Accept It

by Barby Ingle

Life does not just go back to the way it was before your illness. Recognizing this and moving through it can help you adjust to the new life that you now face.

ReMission Possible;Yours, If You Chose To Accept It, is about a patients journey, (one year leading up to an IV-Infusion treatment that put author Barby Ingle into remission and one year of what happened after) of health, social; and mental adjustments. ReMission Possible is a follow up book to RSD in Me, but also stands alone as a story that you too can achieve. It is a motivational guide to being your own best advocate, “The Chief of Staff of Your Own Medical Team” as Barby likes to say. RSD in Me and ReMission Possible are wide reaching with one in three Americans dealing with a chronic pain condition of some sort.

Herbs from Native American Medicine (Herbal Medicine from Your Garden or Windowsill)

by Frann Leach

When the Founding Fathers landed on the shores of the New World, they may have had some medical supplies with them, but most of the plants they found in their new home were completely different to the ones they were used to. Perhaps they had the foresight to bring seeds for familiar simples with them, but the conditions in this strange new land were totally different and they had enough trouble finding food, without having to cosset alien plants in a strange new environment.

It’s often recounted how native Americans helped them to survive, providing food and medicine when all seemed lost. Even today, many tribes keep to the old traditions, using herb lore and methods handed down the generations.

Although there is some secrecy surrounding native American medicine, enough is known about some of the herbs they used to make this book possible.

Included in Herbs from Native American Medicine are details about 30 different herbs (38 if you count all the different species of wild buckwheat), complete with information on how to grow, collect and prepare your remedies, and which parts of which plant to use to treat which ailments.

What’s in this book:

Why organic growing methods are important

Bluedawn (A Watermagic Novel)

by Brighton Hill

 “The most seductive creatures in
the world… You will have eternal life… You will be extraordinarily beautiful… All
men will fall in love with you… Super strength will be yours…”

Strange tingling sensations rushed
through my body. I feared this was the first stages of death. I thought I was
going to die from blood loss. It felt like knives were stabbing through my
back. The sensations of millions of needles penetrating my pours and twisting
through the membranes shocked my senses further. The pain was excruciating. I
felt like my bones were being stretched and then like I was being run over by a
car. My body was writhing on the ground. Foam was coming up from my throat and
out of my mouth.
Why did I come to this island of
roses? When life offers you paradise, even death seems sweet.
The hunter’s eyes sparkled with eternity as he held out his hand and began to sing…

The Butterfly Collector

by Ben Macnair

Another collection of my poetry, with a more political, nature and popular culture slant than usual. It contains poems about Coldplay, Harry Potter, Jazz, Politics and Daleks.

Ago and Other Poems

by George Enice Lawhon

The poems in this volume were written over a span of years from my early twenties to as recently as this, my 79th year. I make no judgment about them except to say that while some are intentionally lighthearted, made with quick construction, and some with a distinct detail to a strict format, all were given whatever capacity and talent I possessed to create serious work.
Accordingly, in their turns, life and death and love and hate and laughter and anger and grief and other attributes of the incredible Mystery of Life are visited.
Truth told; I wrote only to please myself, but I do hope you enjoy them. If you weep or laugh or are angry, then the poem was expressed (more or less) correctly. If at least one catches your eye or captures your heart, I will be very pleased.

The Shores of the Dead Book One: The Rising

by Josh Hilden

The world as it had been ended in less than a day. An ancient evil that had been relegated to the most ancient of myths and legends has returned. The dead rose to consume the flesh of the living and only the lucky and the strong were able to survive the initial onslaught. Three groups of survivors must come together and unite against an army of the dead lead by a dark priest and his human followers who are looking to find the key to opening the barriers between worlds and turn the Earth into a true realm of the dead.

Liam Harrison is a former Special Forces soldier and current spook for the NSA. As the dead rise he races to warn his estranged family and save as many people sheltered at Wright Patterson Air Force Base as he can before the dead breach the barriers and turn the temporary refuge into an abattoir.

Kyle Carson was one of the directionless slackers that seemed to typify the current generation of young adults. When the dead rose he found himself trapped at his place of employment with friends and enemies alike. Even if he and his best friend manage to escape the tightening noose of the dead surrounding the store they will still need to locate those they love and find some place, any place that is safe from the dead.

Dr. Lisa Sutton survived two tours in the sands of Afghanistan only to return to a position at the University of Michigan ER just in time for the dead to rise. As command and control breaks down it is up to the reserve Army Captain to take command of the situation and prepare the survivors at the school for a long trek to safety in the states upper peninsula.

Sherriff David Marshall is usually only concerned with keeping the peace in the small town of White Harbor Michigan. But when the dead rise and the town is cut off from the state and federal governments, if they even still exist, David and the council of the town are saddled with protecting the people of the county from the dead ? and the living.

King of America

by K T Barr

With only one year left to serve of his illustrious military career, NASA Commander Elias Penchansky instinctively thought that he had faced almost everything that someone at the peak of their career could possibly encounter. He was wrong.
Readying himself to leave on vacation, Elias receives an unexpected phone call from his old adversary Clayton Bane – the current President of the United States- pleading for his help with a specifically perilous evacuation assignment that seemingly only someone with the Commanders expertise would be able to pull off. After listening to Bane’s tale of desperation, and putting aside their historical and still festering differences, Elias reluctantly agrees to cooperate on the assumption that this particular mission of mercy will be for the good of his country. He was wrong.
He thought he could save America from the clutches of a madmanâ?¦from the brink of annihilation. He wasâ?¦?
What follows is a catastrophic chain reaction of events that plummet all those involved into a contemporary and revolutionary nightmare. With its myriad of conspiracies, terrorist plots and ruthless scenes of vengeance, combined with a humorously exaggerated and original story line deeply-rooted within the shadowy and ancient elements of vampirism, King of America is a must read for all fans of the horror genre.

THE GUN MADE ME DO IT: A Tale of Horror (Tales of Blood and Brinkmanship)

by Peter Arkham

William had returned home to see that his wife and kids were terrified because a burglar had broken into their home while they were all still there. It was just lucky that the masked man only wanted money and jewelry, and now William wanted to find some way to protect his family. Driving home, one day, he saw a gun shop and was compelled to stop. He was drawn to this old gun he had seen and just had to feel it in his hands. Little did he know that the gun would possess him with the impulse to kill without any regret. And that’s what William was afraid of. If only he could see that buying that gun was the worst choice he had ever made and would tragically change his life forever.

This ebook contains dark and disturbing images and content and adults should read carefully before determining if it’s appropriate for a child in their care.

Here is a preview:
Reaching into the case, he pulled it out and laid it on the counter in front of me, making me feel a shiver go down my spine, and my eyes just couldn’t stop staring at it. This was definitely the gun for me, and there was nothing that was going to stop me from owning it.
Grabbing the bag on the counter, I walked out of there and back to my SUV with a newfound confidence in each of my steps. Once I was behind the wheel, I had to see it again with the steel glinting in the sunlight. Lifting it up to my eyes, I watched the light play off the surface, and I felt the power go through me that I hadn’t felt in all my life. This gun made me feel like I could do anything, and if anyone got in my way God help them.
The gun was on my lap as I drove home, and then a pair of teenagers in a muscle car cut me off in traffic, and when I beeped my horn at them, I received two fingers in the air in response. Smiling at the two-finger salute, I grabbed the gun off my lap, and pulled down my window to stick it out into the open-air.
The same power that I felt before was radiating down my arm and I suddenly found myself pulling the trigger and hearing the sound of the explosive discharge as the bullets left the barrel.

Schlock! Webzine Vol 4, Issue 12

by Ron Koppelberger

Happy Easter to all our readers! And happy April Fool’s Day/Easter Monday, too!

This week we begin with the final part of Todd Nelsen’s Bernard.

That’s followed by Ron Koppelberger’s Blood and Roses. Ron is a poet, a short story writer and an artist who has written 103 books of poetry over the past several years and 18 novels the world over. Omar ZahZah returns, with a postmodern ghost story featuring the famous French structuralist. We also have another episode of James Rhodes’ The Days of Mr. Thomas, where Joseph is puzzled by the government still advertising places on the Mars mission despite its cancellation. Then Konstantine Paradias, author of Stone Cold Countenance, returns to Schlock! with a Faustian tale of the criminal underworld entitled Razor Edge Tango.

Our featured story this week is our new serial, Gregory KH Bryant’s The Caves of Mars, a planetary romance in the vein of the John Carter stories (think Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novels, not the recent Disney version). A mysterious narrator is trapped in a dream of the mundane world where he tells the story of his real life – on the planet Mars. It ties in well with HG Wells’ First Men in the Moon, which comes next, and Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth, our other serials.

Then Obsidian Mercutio Tesla interviews the alternative model Sarah Stitches.

We’ve lost the â??Books From Our Contributors Section’ due to unacceptable demands from Amazon, so from now on we’ll be featuring their books in the editorial. And so, we’d like to publicise James Rhodes’ Hettford series, which is available for free from Amazon over the Easter period. Series One can be downloaded from And the Easter Special is at

I’d also like to draw the attention of everyone who enjoyed Birke Duncan’s campus zombie apocalypse, Lesson Plan, to his book. Wolf’s Bane in Mocha.


Just as a reminder, we’re still open submissions to our latest anthology, The Pulpateers. What we’re looking for is previously unpublished old-style pulp stories in the genres of science fiction, fantasy and horror. Word length 6000. Please follow, as far as possible, the Lester Dent Pulp Fiction Formula. The content, as long as it’s sci fi/fantasy/horror, is up to the individual author, but try to make it pulpy and retro. Weird tales, superheroes, Flash Gordon-style space opera, even noir or spy-fi, as long as it has a supernatural or SF twist, will all be accepted. Deadline: 19th May. Payment: exposure plus discounted copies. Send all submissions to [email protected]

Mr. Harry Blight

by Volatalistic Phil

It was a somewhat chilly mid-afternoon in the middle of November. And down at the hospital it was a typically busy day; phones ringing, typewriters typing, and on that special occasion, you could hear the facility’s janitor singing, while he was cleaning.

At the little bus stop just across the street sat a handful of children who were laughing and smiling happily. They were all eagerly awaiting the afternoon bus, hoping to make it to school before the bell was dinging. Some of them were already warmly wrapped in brightly colored plush; undoubtedly the work of a mother fearing their child might come down with a feverish disgust.

Soon, there would be a meeting with
dear sweet Mr. Harry Blight. He was rather anxious; it had been quite a long
time since the two were able to share in any conversation. It was due to
unfortunate circumstances though, and of course, the natural order and
condition that is life–always busy and always on the go.

Running Against Time

by Chris Pavey

The Fuji Mountain Race, heralded as Japan’s most difficult climbing race, is a 3,000-metre ascent over 21 kilometres of tarmac, gravel and volcanic rock. In 2011, Chris Pavey, a weekend runner from Brisbane, took on this challenge to raise money for charity, and in memory of his late sister in law, Christina.

Running in solidarity with a nation shaken to its core by the worst earthquake and tsunami experienced in modern history, Chris confronts his own inner demons of self-doubt. Will people support his cause? Can he reach his fundraising target? Will his body hold strong against the injuries plaguing him? Getting to the start of the race was challenge enough, but now he has to finish it, and by doing so, provide a fitting memory for Christina.

But Chris’ story begins long before this one race, and encompasses so much more than just running. Faced with a bizarre illness preventing his body from digesting fat, he re-discovers the true worth of exercise and good nutrition. From cycling through Japan, to a security guard hold up in the Middle East; from running his first road race on the Gold Coast, to scrambling through the rainforest of Tropical North Queensland; his tales not only entertain but also inspire as he successfully learns how to combine his passion for endurance running with a desire to fundraise.

In Running Against Time, Chris provides an unorthodox roadmap for others in their own endurance adventures and fundraising projects. With dedicated sections on how to train, how to overcome common running injuries, and how to fundraise, he will open your eyes to what lies out there waiting, and inspire even the most sedentary of us to pull on some runners.

Life’s a Ditch

by Charles Dougherty

When my wife and I decided to run away to sea, we thought we knew what we were doing. Our first few months on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, or “the Ditch,” disabused us of that notion. Our seamanship was adequate, but our expectations weren’t realistic. Life’s a Ditch isn’t so much about where we went and what we saw during our time in the Ditch, but about how we reacted to it and how our lives were changed by our experiences. Share the surprises we had and the choices that we made as we discovered what we got ourselves into when we abandoned our comfortable life ashore to become seagoing wanderers.

Yoga for Golf Fitness & Performance

by Ernie McBride

For years, more and more athletes engage in yoga to strengthen and improve their physical and psychological performance. Yoga for golfers, for instance, not only improves one’s flexibility, coordination and sense of balance but also in putting more focus into one’s game.

CPGA Professional, Chima McLean who has now been practicing yoga for more than a decade, says “Yoga is a great help to golfâ?¦ It previously helped my back problems immensely to the point where I can walk carrying my golf bag againâ?¦ I now recommend all my clients try yoga – even if they don’t immediately realize the benefits of increased mental focus, added strength and personal control over stress, everyone can enjoy golf more with the added flexibility from yoga.”

Mike, a yoga for golf student at The Adelaide Club in Toronto shared his success story: “I’m currently playing to a 12 handicap, drive the ball 265-270 on average. After just one class, I found two major improvements in two consecutive rounds. Specifically my short to mid iron game, without even knowing it, I was able to get my club to the top of my backswing with ease and in combination with breathing exercises (again subconsciously) recoil my body with an effortless tempoâ?¦ key result was my ability to control ball flight, high or low, whatever the situation required. Both rounds I scored 5 strokes lower than average, but maybe the best part of all is an increased confidence level over the golf shot. For the record, I’m not a gadget, watch videos how to improve your game type guy, I just like to go out and play.
