I Zombie I

by Jack Wallen

“A terrific, nail biting, page turner: I finished this book in one sitting. Smart in its plausibility, I Zombie I is not only a great work of sheer horror-entertainment (while often poking some wicked fun at the very genre of zombie fiction), Wallen manages to, amidst the chaos, gore, and rapid fire suspense — throw some honest philosophical food for thought into the novel regarding the very nature of humanity and how fragile that thing that makes us *us* actually is.” — M. Frastley (San Francisco, CA)

“Jack is a brilliant writer and he can make your head spin with his storytelling wiles. Jack tells us his take on Zombies without the feeling like we are being slammed by yet another Zombie book or movie.” — Albert Robbins III

All he wanted was a Pulitzer.

It took only one bite for journalist Jacob Plummer to find the story of a life time — his own downward spiral into the zombie abyss.

As Jacob slowly transforms into one of the undead, he discovers a truth that could spare the world from extinction.

While Jacob struggles to reveal the conspiracy behind the virus, he must fight off his own inner zombie and the undead masses to save the human race, the woman he loves, and a planet ripped apart by the Mengele Virus.

Chet & Floyd vs. The Apocalypse: Volume 1

by Justin Hunter

Welcome to the darkest of comedies.
Chet & Floyd vs. the Apocalypse: Volume 1 is a tribute to the anti-hero. This lightning paced, ultra-violent novel will find and tickle the blackest part of your funny bone. The big death has brought the end of most of the life on earth. The planet is like the mortally wounded, limping along as it bleeds out. Every day is colder than the last. There is no food. The humans that were spared from death’s swath are now roaming the earth, starving and decadent. Cannibalism and Nihilism rule. This was the time of Chet and Floyd.
Plunging across the apocalyptic landscape in their 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle, Chet and Floyd navigate their way through this new world. Chet, who starts the novel with ten fingers but won’t keep them all by the end of the story, is obsessed with finding morality in an environment which is anything but. Floyd is his stoic voice of reason, which isn’t saying much in a world where there isn’t any reason at all.



The Dragonfly Door

by Margaret Millmore

The Dragonfly Door

A Science Fiction Time Travel Thriller

Most people would envy Frank Mann for living off a trust fund in beautiful San Francisco. But Frank was directionless and spiraling downward – lonely, drinking heavily, getting into brawls. He was sitting at a bar when above the gleaming bottles he first glimpsed the thing that would change his life forever.

“It was the largest dragonfly I’d ever seen. Its wings were silver and its body a luminescent blue-green, almost metallic. I swear it was looking right at me.”

But it wasn’t looking at him. It was looking for him. Because it wasn’t a dragonfly at all, it was a door into the future. And it was sent to find Frank Mann for one specific reason: because only he could save mankind from extinction.

A century from now, the world seems cleansed of pollution, relieved of conflict, liberated from want. Earth appears lush and beautiful, a renewed Eden. But there’s trouble in paradiseâ?? a deadly virus that is destroying all of earth’s agriculture. Unleashed in our time, its catastrophic power only emerges a century from now. And to create an antidote, the scientists of tomorrow must obtain a sample of the virus from today. That’s where Frank Mann comes in.

However, success will not be as easy as stepping through the dragonfly door. An evil future sect will try to thwart him. The time travel device itself could fail and strand him, and unnerving encounters with his own future wife and their great-great-grandchildren might skew history altogether. Frank just wanted something to live for – something a little more modest than saving humanity. But that’s what the future asked of him and now it’s time to answer the call.

Sharon of Two Salems

by Alan Hanscom

A 30-something woman who sees her life is headed down the path of always being alone tries to turn her circumstances around. In the conservative, southern town she lives in â?¦ Salem, Virginia â?¦ she keeps to herself what she thinks is her crazy wish for supernatural powers. At the same time, she’s made some progress in the real world, with the help of a therapist. Nonetheless, she can’t stop her imagination from running wild with what she could do in the blink of an eye to improve her existence. No one’s more surprised than her, however, when she calls a bolt of blue lightning down out of the sky and a giant object that looks like a porcupine fish appears above the mountain near her home.

Convinced that she’s a witch and that her conservative aunt and church members will soon figure it out, she quietly moves to Salem, Massachusetts. Her reasoning is that if her secret becomes known, she’ll at least be safer in a city already populated by modern-day witches.

She remains puzzled over the thing in the sky near her old house. Why were there lights all over it? She wonders if others were involved.

Beach Front Gold Rush

by John Warren Self

Beach Front Gold Rush

Book Description; Mark and Tom entered a restaurant for lunch. A certified financial planner was setting up an investment lunch meeting there. He wanted to impress a larger crowd with his spiel. “Hello gentlemen, I would be happy to include you on my lunch bill if you would sit with us.”
They moved for the free lunch. Then Dan Peterson, a close friend to Mark, came in the place seeing them. “Tommy and Mark, hi.”
“Hey kid, sit here with us,” Tommy replied.
“Thanks.”
“This investment guy will pay for your lunch just for sitting here.”
The CFP sold various income-generating insurance products to the group. All of the products were claimed as being safe based on the word of the government insurance commission. However, they were actually risky. The government turned a blind eye on it.
Mark and Dan felt that the CFP knew what he was talking about, and ignored Uncle Tommy’s warning. They invested with him. However, Dan borrowed other people’s money. He took it from their accounts to do it.
Then the investments all went bust after a year or so. Some of the failures were from the Certified Financial Planners committing fraud. Their clients lost most or all of their investments in every case.
The investigators raided the CFP’s offices when they received complaints about the losses. Mark and Dan got letters about it from them. Then they got a series of court documents from a court appointed receiver. He took charge of the criminal held properties for distribution to the victims. They easily figured out that there would be little financial recovery for the victims.
Mark crashed his tractor in to the wall as punishment. He was thrown into the wall, and found with massive bruising and broken ribs. Dan lost the other people’s money when he invested. The real problem with that was that he really embezzled it.
Dan tried to catch a plane to Puerto Rico out of Logan to escape the law. He thought the place was just another island country. The problem with that was that he did not realize that it was a part of the United States.
Mark won at poker in Las Vegas only to obtain useless Arizona land. However, an earthquake followed by a tsunami hit. He struck gold on the former dry river bed.

Preface

The seismic response spectra of the geology surveys of several nuclear power plants were done by as many as six firms. They were all different spectra as if they surveys were done in six different locations around the country. The surveys were done over many years starting in the 1960’s.
The question rose for the engineers using these curves for g values and such information. Which one of the curves should be used? The answer for them was to use the most conservative numbers of all the curves, and live with that.
Well it seems that at least five of the surveys were in gross error. Such geology surveys were done to find seismic fault lines for concerns about possible occurrences of Earthquakes.
There is the well known the San Andreas Fault line located between southern California and the San Francisco Bay. Then a map shows that there are perhaps hundreds of tiny seismic fault lines between Ritto, Mexico and Las Vegas.
However, did geologists screw up the surveys there? Is there a major unknown fault line hidden there? If so then, will California split in two, and slip into the sea between Ritto, Mexico and the San Francisco Bay?

The Word of Dog: The universe: what it is and what to do about it

by Max Merrybear

Please note: you do need an IQ of at least 120 and a casual interest in science to enjoy this book!

Sometimes it’s not always easy being a dog, especially when you’ve written a book that balances humour with the most avant-garde aspects of quantum theory to reconcile science and religion, shed additional light on what happens when pets and people die, and confine conflict and war to the realms of ancient history. Alas, due to the infallibilities of human nature, I suspect it may nevertheless be a few years before the whole world learns to live in perfect harmony. By all means make up your own mind though! Max xx

Full blurb (as written by Max Merrybear):

Using an informal conversational style and illustrated with very simple examples that the reader can model on their own kitchen table with everyday items if they wish, The Word of Dog juxtaposes humour with the most avent garde aspects of quantum theory to reconcile science and religion. Conflict and war therefore become otiose. Alas, due to the infallibilities of human nature, I suspect that it may nevertheless be a few years before the whole world learns to live in perfect harmony. Possibly even a whole decade. For some of us that’s a lifetime.

Conceptually the work sits alongside A Brief History of Time (Stephen Hawking) and The Bible (various writers, prophets and translators, one attested copyright holder), as despite the somewhat imprecise and sometimes conflicting nature of each, The Word of Dog will now allow them to occupy the same virtual shelf space in perfect harmony.

The Word of Dog is actually a serious work of philosophical canine quantum theology that proves once and for all, beyond any shadow of a doubt, exactly what the universe (omniverse) is, how and why it got here, and what we (mainly humans and dogs but to a lesser extent other species as well) should do about it.

For those able to fully understand, great comfort may be derived from the discussions on Guardian Angel Bears (and other Guardian Angels) – essentially a grown-up scientific version of the concept of Rainbow Bridge.

Additionally, in what scholars might well infer is a corrupted homage to the somewhat less literary yet nevertheless splendid work The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the second half of The Word of Dog goes on to include detailed answers to the forty-two most important questions ever asked, the corruption being of course that ‘forty-two’ wasn’t actually the answer being sought but rather in this case the number of questions that needed answering, questions such as ‘Am I Going to Live Forever?’, ‘What happens after death?’, ‘Satan: is he all bad?’ and ‘I’ve built myself a flying saucer out of wattle and daub, yet I am unable to fly it as I have no engine. Can you help?’ (I can and I do, as well as incorporating some radical yet undisputable new thinking to prove the existence of Father Christmas and explain his modus operandi.)

I would like to stress that this is a carefully considered and reasoned yet accessible intellectual work, rather than a trite excuse to joke about burying bones and humping vicars’ legs. OK, technically there is one small reference to a bone burial. Maybe two. And there’s a bishop. Well, two bishops and a rector. And it’s the rector’s bone that gets buried. But none of them get their legs violated. Although now that I mention it, it is the rector’s fibula (calf bone) that gets buried, and it is violated a little bit, but not coitally. That much, I promise.



Natural Home Remedies for Insomnia

by Elizabeth Summers

65% of you will have problems sleeping tonight, and many of you experience this not just occasionally, but frequently, maybe even every night. Sleep forms a trinity with nutrition and exercise as the foundation and pillars of health and vitality, but it is unfortunately an aspect of health and life that is shoved to the side and largely ignored. Even an hour or two less sleep each night, however, can cause misery for the whole next day or set things off for the whole week! Chronic insomnia becomes worse by several orders of magnitude, and result in serious health complications both short and long term. In this text Elizabeth draws on her many years of experience with insomnia, and curing herself of a severe clinical sleep condition to help guide you back to the world of vitality.

Elizabeth Summers has been working with herbs and natural medicine for over twenty years, starting by working with friends and family and eventually branching out into the community and the world of medicine out of a profound need to help people. We live in a sick world, and her written work is one way to try to spread the simple but profound health inherent in nature to those who need it. Elizabeth has written on dozens of natural and homeopathic topics, from acute injuries and disease, to diet, pregnancy, and simply trying to thrive in a world of plenty that unfortunately usually leads to dysfunction instead of health. Look for the many other natural remedies pieces here on Amazon!

Betting on Love

by Patricia Kay

High Stakes Romance . . .

Michael was sick and tired of playing the hatchet man. This cloak and dagger assignment at the Glass Slipper would be the last time he’d go undercover for his father’s corporation. Someone was stealing from the Las Vegas casino, and his research told him to begin by investigating Shawn MacInnes, the fiery redhead who turned cards in the casino. At first glance, she seemed like an untouched innocent. But Michael knew that nothing was a sure bet in a city of wild cards.

For Shawn, dealing blackjack in a Vegas casino was like returning to the scene of the crime. Compulsive gambling had killed her father. But for now, the Glass Slipper Casino offered her a good living and a chance to break free from the past.

But when her shift was over, Shawn wanted nothing to do with the high-stakes world of gambling. Dealing cards was a job — not a forum to fraternize with fellow employees like Michael DeNiro. With topaz eyes and lean good looks, Michael was one of those men who oozed sex appeal and charm. Shawn steered clear of his type, just as she avoided the Nevada desert sun. Both were scorchers.

Brimstone (Amanda Ryder, V.I.)

by Shanyn Hosier

Amanda Ryder never asked for her special giftsâ??she’d been born with the ability to see, hear, and sense things around her no one else could. Only her pious family never believed her innocence. Accused of witchcraft, she’s thrown out of the house on her eighteenth birthday when the latest exorcism goes horribly wrong.

Amanda makes her way to New Orleans, where her psychic abilities are accidentally discovered by voodoo shop proprietress Marian Dupree, coincidentally the leader of a covert, quasi-governmental crime-fighting team: the Academy of St. Joan of Arc. Amanda further vows to preserve her virginity until such time as it is needed to save a male colleague on the verge of deathâ??a concept she can scarcely believe.

Amanda’s quickly overwhelmed by the impressive paranormal talents of her new coven and begins to doubt whether the Academy could want her for anything but her virginity. Life at the Academy is fraught with complications: her promiscuous roommate is cheating on her boyfriend, on whom Amanda’s developed a traitorous crush; her growing antagonism for one team member in particular, to whom she might be called on to surrender her virginity; and the punishing heightened libido all paranormals experience during the full moon, which might prove too powerful to resist.

Amanda must also decide where her loyalty lies, for Marian isn’t the only one interested in what she has to offerâ??Hamilton Spencer Nash, head of a local paranormal crime syndicate, wonders if Amanda might be the girl his mother prophesied is the lynchpin of his destiny and decides he wants Amanda’s paranormal gifts for his own nefarious use. As the Academy investigates a suspicious string of arson blazes, Amanda is drawn dangerously close to falling within Hamilton’s grasp. Will the Academy be strong enough to protect her?

Imprisoned at Werewolf Keep (Werewolf Keep Trilogy)

by Nhys Glover

“Perfect for readers who enjoy love stories with substance and a classical supernatural touch.”

Escaping one madman she runs into the arms of another…

In mid-Victorian England a contagion runs rampant, unbeknown to its citizens. Those afflicted are either killed or confined to a desolate pile of stones on the Yorkshire Moors called Breckenhill Keep. The denizens of that Keep loath the monsters they have become. None more so than Jasper Horton, a refined gentleman in all ways but one.

When Lady Fidelia Montgomery arrives at the Keep, seeking to escape the clutches of the madman who has killed her husband, she unwittingly unleashes the wildness Jasper has gone to such lengths to contain. His love for her puts innocent lives at risk, including Dee’s own, and threatens to turn the doll-like widow into a monster he abhors.

Ë?Ë?Ë? What Goodreaders are saying about Werewolf Keep:

‘The story and plot was very realistic for a paranormal romance… I would recommend this to readers who love historical romances with a paranormal twist.’Ciara1973

‘This author’s writing ability is exceptional and is quite elegant while delivering a work of fiction with an incredible impact.’ Christina

‘It was cool it was ‘classic’ werewolf, in that one scratch and they’re a werewolf, along with they only turn on the full moon and are not in control of their wolf. Very gothic with the era and the surroundings.’ Grumpyoldbird

‘I loved the solitary feel of the moor and the utterly fantastic way that Glover brings the residents and the Keep, its self, alive. It is a very unique experience. Though readers meet the Keep and the residents by way of Phil’s initial presumptions, Glover makes sure that the way the residents view themselves and their predicament are equally explored. Because this information is so intricately layered throughout the book, the entire storyline is richer. I honestly enjoyed all of the characters and look forward to Glover’s spin-off story about Jasper. (But I have to say that my favorite character is Charlotte. :)’ Blakely

Annabelle’s Diary

by Lila M Beckham

They said that in her youth, Annabelle had long, coal black hair, high cheekbones, and deep, penetrating, brown eyes. Her eyes could still penetrate the soul, but they were paler in color, maybe because they were covered with the whitish film of cataracts. I remember watching her take her hair from the neat bun she wore and let it down to comb. Her hair was long, but no longer black as coal. It was the color of newly formed storm clouds and fell in a silvery braid to her hips. I watched her comb it out and then she would braid it, wind it back into a bun and pin it low, just above the nape of her neck.

Everyone always said that I favored her a lot. Annabelle was my great-grandmother; she was a Full Blood, a Choctaw Indian from Savannah, Georgia.

When a child, I thought she was tall, larger than life. My admiration of her as we walked in the yard and I helped her gather eggs and pick flowers, was unsurpassable; but as I grew, I realized that she was a tiny woman.

Shrunken from her many years on earth, she stood barely four feet, ten inches tall. In her older years, maybe even her younger ones too, she was never without a jar of Garrett snuff.

One summer, when I was about twelve years old, I went to stay with my grandmother Annabelle. And because her house was so small, I slept in her bedroom with her. Each night before we went to sleep, she pulled a leather bound book from underneath her mattress and wrote for a few minutes before she extinguished the bedside lamp. She seemed intent on what she was doing so I did not bother her with questions, but after several nights, curiosity got the better of me and when she finished and placed the book under the mattress, I asked what she was writing in the book.

She told me that she was writing her thoughts on the events of the day so that if she wanted she could look back and know exactly what she was thinking and how she felt that particular day.

“Is that how you remember all of those stories you tell me, about when you were a child and about your kinfolks back then” I asked.

“It is a part of it,” she replied, “but some things you just do not ever forget. They remain with you your entire life.”

“Tell me a story, Grandmother,” I begged. “Tell me about when you were a child; a young girl like me.”

She began her story that night, by telling me how she met and married my grandfather Jesse. She also told me about leaving her home and family in Savannah to move to Mobile to live near my grandfather’s family. And in that telling, I discovered that my grandmother had led a very interesting life, especially in her earlier years.

Her life was filled with heartbreaks, heartaches, great times, and sad times. She attended Mardi Gras Balls and traveled extensively around the South. She was involved with an assortment of ill-fated lovers. Indulged in hoodoo, voodoo, even murder! Hers was a life I found extremely fascinating; a life, I wished I could live.

That summer, I decided that when I grew old, I wanted to be just like my grandmother Annabelle. However, today, as I sat staring across the haphazard layer of hills to the west and thought of Annabelle and the olden days of grace and charm. I realized that those days were forever gone. They were days that I myself would never know, except through my grandmother’s eyes and memories.

No longer that young inquisitive girl, I am an old woman now. On my own, I have lived a long uneventful life. Only through her stories could I live the life I dreamt of; therefore, I decided to share her story with the world. I am certain she would approve.

I hope you all enjoy reading her story, as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Her story began April 1865, at the end of the Civil War, as was told to me by my grandmother, Rebecca Annabelle Maples Foster.

In My Youth and other myths – Part 1

by William Zink

From the author of Pieta, Ohio River Dialogues, and Ballad of the Confessor, comes a collection of what on the surface appear to be short stories, but are more akin to sagas of the past – myths about youthful love presented with honesty, elegance, and a bit of theatrics. Part 1 of 2, these tales examine love in its many and varied faces. In prose that often approaches verse, Zink holds up a mirror reflecting love’s images, asking only that the reader believe in the hope of magic, while celebrating the pedestrian.

In The World Of Eve (Whyworry Books)

by Emmanuel Nwachukwu

Wywarri Dave watches the society today and notices a high level of irregularity among the youths. He combats it priggishly and with some sanctimonious neurosis that confuses his relationships with ladies ratherâ??leaving him nowhere to perch. And pathetically enough, this characterizes his haughty deposition in grappling with the eerie mystery of death as he struggles in attempt to put to reality of his reincarnation.

The book, â??In The World Of Eve’, is a quite extraordinary, very ambitious work of great fascination. It is a conscientious work of fabulous range that explores in depth the mysteries of mythological image of love-relationship; the surreal conundrums, the inexplicable paranormal, the daring and the peerless individuality.

In the same vein, it goes transcendent in the revelation of lust, love and passion, and of course prides underlying them.

Emmanuel Nwachukwu here has comprehensible new thoughts choosing well for the society. He of course believes in this riveting irresistible page-turner, that neglect of early missionaries in using our cultural value in the work of evangelism results to some problems of uncanny phenomena bewildering the human mind.

– What is their purpose?
– How can we discover and put to use our own gifts?

Pyramid Rising~Planetary Acupuncture to Combat Climate Change

by Zach Royer

“The planetary clock has since moved past the winter solstice of 2012, yet prophecies about “the End of the World” and the inevitable destruction of the greater part of the human race are still discussed on our TV screens, internet chat rooms, and in general throughout all of our media outlets. In the scenarios most often suggested the Earth’s future is presented as a succession of planetary-scale catastrophes, in the face of which a considerable portion of humanity helplessly awaits “the End.” But the “End of the World” is not coming and the vast majority of the Earth’s population will not perish, although serious trials and tribulations do lie ahead for humanity.”

How Should I Pray? (Moments that Matter)

by Riley Nelson

“Moments That Matter” is an essay series which provides concise Bible-based answers to the important spiritual questions in people’s lives.

The disciples of Jesus once requested, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).

Fortunately, Jesus did answer His disciples’ question. His word provides us powerful guidance in how to commune with God.

“How Should I Pray” is a quick, fundamental introduction to the topic of prayer. If prayer has ever been a challenge to you, this brief essay will help provide a biblical starting point for overcoming the difficulties you face in praying to your God.

Unfolded Hands: Rejecting Ritual and Returning to Prayer

by Aidan Rogers

How then should I pray?

It’s a fair question. Prayer is the one Christian discipline that doesn’t seem so clear-cut. If we go to church, there we are. If we read the Bible, here it is. If we give, love, serve, worship, we know that we have done these things. But how do we know if we’ve prayed?

To help us understand this word, pray, we have ritualized the practice of prayer. We fold our hands, bow our heads, close our eyes, and ramble for a while until we find ourselves at an amen. Then we’re left to wonder if God has heard us.

It rarely seems He has. The ritual of prayer has all but taken the relationship out of our personal time with God. Prayer is a set of standards; we’ve lost the intimacy of the Infinite. And we’re longing to get it back.

Unfolded Hands is not another set of rules. It’s not another book of guidelines for how we do this thing called pray. It is an invitation. It is an opportunity to set aside ritual and go back to the heart of prayer – talking to God. Having a conversation. Hearing Him speak. It is permission to pray the way your heart already wants to. The way God’s people have always prayed.

These are the stories of men and women praying powerful prayers, with unfolded hands ready to receive the answer. These are the stories of men and women in the Upper Room, in the lower valley, in the wilderness, in the Temple, on the streets of Jerusalem and anywhere else God would meet them who took the chance to call on His name, open their hands, and reach out to touch Him. These are the stories of a God who reaches back.

Will you open your hands and pray?



Have No False Idols (Commandments)

by Karen J. Jones

This delightful book is based on God’s Second Commandment from the Old Testament, “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them”, and looks at its relevance in today’s society.

In ‘Have No False Idols’ the authors look at how mankind attempts to define and limit God’s likeness by the use of imagery and how we misplace our loyalty to Him by worshipping materialism and false gods; our idols. Topics include how to identify idols that take the place of God in society, and our obsession with money, food and family.

‘Have No False Idols’ is written in a non-judgemental style, and is suitable for general readership as well as for use in discussion groups within churches, schools and colleges.

If you are new to the Christian faith or are simply wishing to find out more about God’s commandments, then this book will serve as a good stepping stone for you as you embark on your journey of discovery and spiritual development.

Other titles in this series are available in Kindle and paperback formats and include: Keep the Sabbath Holy, Love your God, Sole God, Love your Neighbour, Have No False Idols, Do Not Blaspheme, Do Not Kill, Do Not Commit Adultery, Do Not Steal, Do Not Lie, Do Not Envy, Do Not Judge, Forgive Others, The Power of Prayer, and a compilation: God’s Law.

Going Up

by Phyllis Stokes

God made the spirit of man in the image and likeness of Himself, and He desires to have fellowship with all of His children in this life. Because we are spirits as He is Spirit, our spirits cannot be confined to the body of flesh God gave us to live on earth. We don’t belong here on earth; and Jesus made it possible at Calvary for our spirits to be transported to our heavenly home in Zion by the Holy Spirit. Jesus has opened the door to the Father’s throne room so that believers may enjoy free daily access to the Father in this life. On certain occasions we may actually find ourselves inside the gates of the Holy City, speaking with dear loved ones who have entered their rest. With God all things are possible.

Going Up is a book about personal experiences. You will witness actual events as one daughter of Zion is caught up in the Spirit, enjoys an escorted tour of the banqueting hall in the Temple of God; and, while in the Spirit on other occasions, visits with loved ones and seemingly entertains heavenly visitors in her own home. You will observe how a willing spirit has the faith and courage to leave her earthly body behind and take an intergalactic trip to Zion. You will share her excitement and witness how her life is changed by her determination to enjoy life in the Spirit.

The Bone Thrower (Dreams of a Past Life) Book 1 (The Bone Seer Paranormal Romance Trilogy)

by Aishah Macgill

A thrilling paranormal romance, with a twist! Or two!

Imagine if your past life came crashing into this one?

“Remarkably intelligent storytelling of the highest calibre. Dark at times, and perfectly balanced with light and love. The author has struck a chord, deep within my psyche… she took me to a place I had forgotten existed, back to an era full of real magic.”  Alicia  Abercrombe – Passion & Purpose 4 Life


Isabella Matthews finds herself entangled in a strange little game which begins with the manifestation of bizarre poltergeist acitivity in her home. She then experiences lucid dreams of her life as a Temple Seer in an ancient Lebanese city, the megalopolous of Byblos, the real City of Libraries and from where the word ‘Bible’ originates.

The Temple Seer can see into the future at will- but not what is going on in front of her own eyes… she spectacularly falls from grace, plummeting into a life of hedonistic debauchery- that of a sex slave to sixteen barbaric brothers- and she also becomes haplessly addicted to a mystical, alchemical substance.

However, in the present day, she soon realises that as the ordinary but well educated Isabella Matthews, she can make good on a single, far reaching, fateful decision made long ago…

Isabella grew up in Australia in a remote outback town. She moves to England, where she unexpectedly meets her soul mate. Both lawyers, they team up to battle an unscrupulous multi-national oil company who are wreaking havoc around the world with dire consequences. Who will triumph in this epic legal and spiritual battle, Isabella and her lover? Or the diabolically currupt CEO, Kaylene Lawrence?

Follow The Bone Thrower’s timeless odyssey, through lifetimes, accross continents and unravel one of the biggest mysteries of our very existence, a question we all inevitably ask ourselves, at least once, is there life- after death? Is there life beyond?

You decide.


“Somehow, we can all relate to the soulful journey of ‘The Bone Thrower’. I couldn’t put it down! And I couldn’t stop thinking about it for days after I’d finished.”  Lou Stokes – Living in Yogadise

Gods I Have Known

by Brina Katz

Seven stories set in a variety of cultural backgrounds explore human relationships as they become entangled with magical influences. Written in a range of voices, these contemporary stories move effortlessly between the realms of both romantic and erotic love.

A woman finds herself enraptured by the folk traditions of Shinto when she travels to Japan to discover the hidden meaning of a strange necklace.

A young Wiccan uses her mother’s Tarot cards to find out more about the nature of love.

A young girl realises that there is more to growing up when she discovers an unusual painting by a Jewish artist, in her local art gallery.

A chance encounter with a rune reader leads to a chaotic adventure for a young archaeologist searching for an ancient stone in the bleak fells of northern Britain.

In these and the three other stories in this collection we are left with a warning; that we must tread with care, because sometimes you can choose your Gods – but sometimes they choose you.



VERDICT: HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE BIBLE

by Dan Watson

This book is a must-read for those confused by the arguments set forth by the pro-homosexual vanguard against the Biblical perspective of homosexuality. Using both homosexual and Biblical source materials as the basis for this study, this book addresses a number of arguments proposed by the proponents of homosexuality, and considers a number of questions, including the following:

(1) What do Biblical texts say about homosexuality? Does Biblical philosophy condone or condemn homosexual behavior?

(2) What does Jesus’ statement “[j]udge not, that ye be not judged” mean? Does it indicate his approval of homosexual behavior?

(3) What, if anything, did Jesus say about homosexuality, and what does this mean?

(4) Were some key Biblical characters homosexuals?

(5) Is the anti-homosexual rhetoric of the Bible applicable to all cases of homosexuality, or are there caveats for some homosexual relationships?

(6) Do genetic issues legitimize homosexual behavior?

(7) Does the Bible define homosexual behavior as sinful behavior?

(8) Is homosexual behavior compatible with the demands of Christianity?

(9) What is the Church to do in response to practicing homosexuals in its midst?

By contemplating and answering each of these questions, it will be possible to determine the merit of the homosexual case and to resolve the issue of whether practicing homosexuals can legitimately function as Christians, both individually and corporately.

The following excerpt comes from the chapter “ARGUMENT: THE SILENCE OF JESUS”.

Does the Silence of Jesus Justify Other Behaviors?

Undoubtedly, in spite of the evidence presented thus far, there will be some naysayers who will persist in championing homosexuality by using the argument of Jesus’ silence; however, it seems unlikely that any of these same proponents would use this argument of silence to support and promote other issues. Consider the following:

(1) The Old Testament contains statements condemning the practice of bestiality (e.g., Leviticus 20:15, 16), an act that like homosexuality appears to have been subject to a total ban by the Law, yet there is no Biblical record indicating that Jesus concurred with this and condemned bestiality; therefore, those who contend that he approved of homosexuality on the basis of his silence about it would also by the same line of reasoning have to argue that he approved of bestiality, because he said nothing about it.

(2) The Old Testament contains regulations prohibiting the practice of incest (e.g., Leviticus 20:11). While regulated by the Law of Moses, the New Testament provides no evidence that Jesus directly commented about incest; therefore, those who contend that Jesus’ silence about homosexuality indicates his approval of it would also, for the same reason, have to argue that he approved of incest, for he didn’t condemn it, or even bother to comment about it.

Just as no reasonable person would use the silence of Jesus to argue the case that he eased or lifted the restrictions regulating bestiality and incest, no reasonable person should use this argument to counter the Biblical prohibition of homosexuality; however, as has been shown, this argument is used by a number of people in just such a manner.



The Just Shall LIVE by Faith (Back to the Basics)

by Nancy A. Almodovar

The following research article will explore how Paul used Habakkuk 2:4 in Romans 1:17 and will focus upon the specific quotation of “The just shall live by faith.” Though there are some difficulties when analyzing various copies of the Habakkuk quote, which will be looked at within this paper, it nevertheless is maintained that Paul is directly quoting this verse in his letter. The position in this paper is that Paul is utilizing the quote from Habakkuk to show the eschatological fulfillment for the ultimate deliverance of God’s people throughout the ages, both Old and New Testament saints, from God’s final judgment.



The Black Bird: A Conversation with a Spiritual Seeker

by Robin Moore

The Black Bird ‘Conversation with a Spiritual Seeker’ is a short book set out in a conversation format between the author and a woman called Sara, a self confessed seeker of spiritual enlightenment. The author is a teacher of mindfulness meditation at the South East Cancer Health Centre in Purley, and also a voluntary teacher at the Royal Marsden Hospital in South East London. The author brings into the conversation the parallels between the sometimes voluntary dissolution of the self on the spiritual journey and involuntary loss of self when faced with critical illness such as cancer. The book covers a wide range of spiritual concepts such as non-duality teachings and touches on Zen and meditation practices. Even though the book is less than sixty pages long it packs a hard punch and encourages the reader to ask some serious questions about exactly what the spiritual path is about and who is the one seeking it.

Taking a Serious God Seriously

by James Perry

Reading this book reveals the current events that formulate worldviews. Then the author examines the ultimate source for Christians to develop God’s way of looking at the world. The author concludes that the “church” and the culture have turned a deaf ear and blind eye to God. It is a clarion call for Christians to return to the standards of Scripture, because God is serious about how Christians should think and live in this world. Every chapter defines what it means to have a serious relationship with a serious God.

Satan is Coming to Town (Dramatic Duets)

by Charles B. French

When it comes to making them laugh or making a point, it doesn’t have to be either-or. Sometimes humorously, often seriously, this duet piece examines and explores what it means to life a life of faith. It’s a serious moral wrapped inside a slightly silly sense of humor.

Across five short vignettes, an ordinary man matches wits with Satan. These scenes examine why the fight against evil needs more than empty gestures and feel-good symbolism. Some of the Enemy’s biggest weapons are out hubris and pride. To truly combat evil, we’re going to have to humble ourselves, have some faith, and roll up our sleeves.

This piece is part of the full script collection: Dramatic Duets



The Christian and Halloween: Biblical Principles to Consider

by S. T. Cowden

Every October 31st in the United States and elsewhere, people celebrate Halloween. Halloween celebrations often include for the sake of fear and entertainment such themes as death, evil, and even at times the demonic and the occult.

In light of the fact that Christians are called to holiness in this world, how are we as followers of Christ to relate to this cultural phenomenon? What does the mission of the Church in making disciples have to do with the choices we make regarding the observance of or abstention from activities related to Halloween? What are some categories of biblical wisdom to help us answer these difficult questions? How are we to relate to Christian brothers and sisters who make different decisions about these things than we do?

In this short read, Cowden does not argue for one particular approach. He believes in the absolute truth of Scripture and the conscience-binding force of the Word of God, but seeks to dispel attitudes that produce simplistic solutions and legalism, and to provide the reader with a few biblical tools and categories to help ask appropriate questions of his or her own situation and relationships with regard to the best way to glorify Christ and advance the mission of the Church during Halloween.

The goal is not confusion, but greater clarity and conviction, for the reader who seeks to continue growing in wisdom and maturity (as the author also must) in applying all the principles of the Bible to all of life in a God-honoring way.



Sermons of Charity

by Paul Condello

Upon bruised and aching shoulders, Christ bore the penalizing blame of faults that would have hindered humanity’s entrance into the everlasting and sublimely fulfilling nature of Paradise. The charity that bears suffering, ridicule, abasement and strife for the love of humanity is the love that is both embodied by Christ, and proclaimed by the Word as the life we are called to exemplify and preach unto our neighbors. Love that commiserates, embraces peace, discovers meaning forgives and provides generously is the charity that is written down in the sermons of this labor.

Hell No!

by Ray Divine

Hell No!

How the Concept of Eternal Torment Isn’t Supported by Scripture or Reason
Ray Divine uses wit, reason, and even The Bible to disprove the foul and heinous notion of Hell as it’s been widely misconstrued throughout the centuries.

Excerpts

Although Hell doesn’t make sense for a God of mercy, where Hell comes in handy is when you want to control a bunch of people. Let’s say, for instance, that you have an empire that rules the known world. But then, like the world-ruling empires before yours, yours starts falling apart. But you’ve had so much fun ruling the known world that you’re not ready to retire. You want your reign to keep pouring down. So as your political power fails, you find another way to rule.

What better way to rule is there than controlling the eternal destiny of others? If someone knows how to make sure you wind up in a special, happy place where the party never ends and helps you avoid the only other option, which would be, the horrid, unhappy place where the pain and sorrow never end, wouldn’t you heed their every admonition? So we only get two choices when we die: Living happily ever after or living agonizingly ever after. Non-smoking or smoking. Since God is so loving, creative, and powerful, how can Christians say our only after life options are Heaven or Hell? Why no curtain number 3? Even “Let’s Make a Deal” has a curtain number 3! Are we to think that Monty Hall is more clever and offers more options than the Divine?

Heaven and Hell are the extremist extremes ever. You can argue “Crunchy wheat” versus “Nicely sweet” all day long, but deep down, you know both sides have merit. Paper versus plastic: Both offer benefits too. But why aren’t you reusing burlap bags every week anyway? With Heaven and Hell, however, you get all that’s good versus all that’s not. Not good; that is. Celebratory times with God and His angels; or grievous, mournful, regretful times with the Devil and his demons.

Times that never end. That’s the worst part! A second in Hell would be too long for anybody, but an eternity? Ew! That’s the worst. Whereas a second in Heaven would elate anyone. And an eternity? That’s as good as it gets. Which is why they say we’ll praise God the whole time. Whereas the other group will curse God and themselves and everyone they know as they pine for a reprieve from the pain, a reprieve that never comes. The worst thing about Hell? No more snow cones or Slurpees. They evaporate as soon as you fix â??em.

Our understanding of Hell today has become corrupted from the original biblical teaching due to the persistence of mistranslations since about the 4th or 5th century, thanks to Augustine of Hippo. Funny how the party got killed by the patron saint of brewers.

If God speaks in riddles and the Bible isn’t direct either, how can God expect us to follow Him or His alleged Word? Raising such objections will get you answers like “God’s ways are higher than our ways.” “That’s what faith is for.” and “The Lord works in mysterious ways.”

Since the Old Testament never really mentions Hell, why would anyone want a New Testament if having one means risking ourselves and/or our loved ones suffering forever? Must be why it’s just called the New Testament; and not the New & Improved Testament.

Warning

The folks who prefer to preach Hell may take offense at this book. But, as the author explains, those who find themselves offended by this book should realize that their God is more offended by them and the way they misrepresent Him, falsely accusing Him of torturing billions of lost souls for eternity. Ew! What kind of Supreme Being do they think He is?

Tin-Clad Guarantee

This brief but brilliant book will entertain and amuse while informing and helping to alleviate fears of eternal torment. If not satisfied, contact Amazon within six days; and they should issue a refund. Enjoy!
Living Fine,

31 Days to Become a Better Reader: Increasing your Struggling Reader’s Reading Level

by Joanne Kaminski

What if there was a tool that could guide you in helping your child become a better reader? This is a 31 day challenge to help guide you and your struggling reader in reading a book together while encouraging her to develop strategies to become a strategic reader. You will learn tips that were once only known to the reading experts. Along with these tips you will learn journaling techniques that will help you focus on the specific needs of your child. Joanne Kaminski, the author, and Renee Love, the cover artist, both struggled with reading while growing up. You will find out how Joanne struggled and how her mom helped her by simply reading with her. This book is intended to be a guide to reading success, even if you don’t know anything about teaching reading. You will learn strategies to help your child figure out words for herself and be given questions to ask for different errors your child makes. You will literally unlock the key to the code for your child. Vocabulary has been one of those areas in reading that drastically can increase a child’s reading level. You will learn what words to focus on with your child and how to get your child to magically remember each of the meanings. Fluency can get in the way of your child’s overall understanding of what she is reading. Reading too fast or reading too slow may cause areas of the brain to not process the information correctly. Also, reading in a monotone manner may get in the way of your child’s enjoyment of what she is reading, as well as her understanding. You will learn how to get your child to figure out when her voice should go up and down and how to stop appropriately at punctuation. The overall purpose of reading is to understand what you are reading. During this 31 day challenge you will learn how to help your child become metacognitive. That means to have her think about her own thinking. She will learn how to ask effective questions to aid in overall comprehension and specifically how to connect with the text. At the end of the book you will get the chance to review how this process went for you and your child. You will be able to check the areas that are still a concern for her and come up with a plan for the next book that you read together. Don’t rely on just the schools when it comes to helping your child with reading. Class sizes are getting bigger and less attention is being given to kids who struggle. By utilizing the techniques that you will learn in this book you can  be proactive about your child’s education and get her onto the path of educational success. No longer do parents have to rely solely on experts to make sure their child is reading on grade level or above. You can have access to all of the tools that you need. With the hardcopy book you will be able to take notes about the process. With the e-book version you will need a notebook to track the progress that is being made. It is pivotal to take these notes so that you can properly assess if the process is working. There will be days where this is not easy. There will be days where it is not convenient to read with your child, but if you stick with the process you will be pleased the results. You have more power than you think available at your fingertips. Whether your child is struggling just a little bit or your child has been diagnosed with dyslexia, your child will benefit from this process. Reading with your child has been the number one factor in determining test scores. The more a child reads, the more she can decode. The more she can decode, the more she can comprehend. When the process is this simple why wouldn’t you give it a try?

The Anglo-American Empire, Regime Change and the Ambition of Israel

by Gary Anderson

There are two smoking guns provided in this book. One describes the advantage that the UK Square Mile took in the financial fleecing of the United States. The second is the advantage Israel took in establishing a financial incentive to neocons, Rothschilds, and other UK wealth to push for regime change in the middle east.

The Anglo-American Empire has adopted a plan for dominance in the middle east. This dominance taken to its logical conclusion is dangerous and is based upon greed and power. The USA has been abused by both the UK and Israel in this process. One would hope pragmatic leaders in Israel and in the USA and in the UK would moderate these abuses. The  financial fleecing of Americans comes from UK easy money and Israeli desires for middle east dominance.

When money, power and religious zeal come together it becomes an unholy alliance. Only pragmatism will overcome the base desires seen in the unfolding of the empire’s plan.

If It’s Broken Don’t Fix It

by Mr. Noriega

Our current education system is our nation s greatest tragedy. One that if not quickly remedied will have the longest lasting ill effects in these years to come.

Over the past few decades, we have seen a rapid decline in our education. The Department of Education spends tens of millions of dollars towards improvements, yet test averages continue to decline at an alarming rate. The question they will not answer is: Why our students are still failing despite all the efforts?

From inside a women s correctional facility to a small town junior high, a teacher on the inside takes you on a tour of our public education system, and exposes the hypocrisy of the philosophy: they preach, what they don t want you to teach.

Learn the incredible secrets they don t want you to know.

Secondhand Autism

by Paul Brodie

Diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in children are happening at an increasing rate. The autism spectrum is very wide and includes many different expressions of symptoms. Regardless of the severity of autism in a child, autism isn’t an individual disorder. Autism affects everyone in the family. Secondhand Autism presents an autobiographical sketch of the author’s experience with autism. His youngest brother is diagnosed with autistic disorder, on the lower functioning end of the autism spectrum. Combining personal experience with education from Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in psychology, the author presents an easy to read description of what family members might expect when a child or sibling is diagnosed as autistic.



I Am The Woman Your Man Wants

by P.J. Grant

As the title suggests, this book paints the picture of the kind of woman men really want. People have their idea of what the perfect woman looks like, even though there is no perfect woman. However, there are certain qualities in a woman that appeal to most men. Some of those qualities are captured in this book.

The qualities include a woman who seeks to do the man good; a woman who is graceful; a woman who cares about others; a woman who is shrewd in business and a woman who fears God.

The bases for the bullet points in this book are found in Proverbs 31 of the Christian Bible. As with any other matter in life, the Bible holds truths that are ageless and therefore serves as the perfect reference point for discussing this all-important topic – the right kind of woman.



Life with Ian: The Teen Years The Journey of an Autistic Boy Through the Eyes of his Step-Dad

by Rodney Kobayakawa

Read the journey of an autistic boy through his teenage years through the eyes of his step-dad. See how he overcame challenges and dealt with change. “Life with Ian” provides some insight as to what worked and didn’t work with him. Some of these techniques may work for some families facing the same obstacles. Enjoy the short stories that attempt to show how Ian thinks. Only he really knows.

This is a collection of short stories of life experiences I have had with Ian from age 12 through age 18, his teen years. This was my first direct experience with autism and the interesting behavior that it presents, especially when it concerns parenting. As a step-dad to Ian, I had to fill in a gap that was left wide open by his biological “Father” as Ian now calls his Dad. I am his Dad now and he will tell you that. His teenager years have been full of challenges and I am glad to have played a part in his life. I have helped him learn to eat better, behave better, and improve his life to his potential. I have written this book will hopefully help others with similar situations. Ian cannot be cured of his disabilities. What we can do is to give him a life, an independent life that he can direct on his own. Ian has made great strides over the years, mostly due to his mother’s wisdom in doing early intervention. Having a great support system in place provided her with the tools needed to help Ian. Her parents, brother, oldest son, aunties, uncles, “hanai” relatives and friends, along with his teachers and professional support staff, all formed the Village that raised Ian. My part was small in the big picture. However, my viewpoint as an outsider could give others some insight as a way to try some things that may help in their particular case. What works for me may not work for you.

In summary, this is a book on Ian from his step-dad’s viewpoint. It is humorous at times and sad at the same time. I hope this will inspire others to not give up. Just keep trying and experimenting to make it work for you. The road may be long and winding but as long as you are moving forward you are making progress.

Some of the subjects covered are:

Grooming

Odd behaviors

Choice of Food

Auditory Delay

Being “Stuck”

Balloons, Trains, and Fireworks

Anger Management

Meet The Poops

by Rob Renee

If your child suffers from a fear of using the toilet to poop then you are not alone. We have spent a great deal of time searching for help or resources to find that there is not a lot of either available. Hopefully the story behind Meet The Poops will help your child. Instead of teaching a lesson of how or where to poop, this short story will show your child the fun and magical world that their poops live in!

Meet The Poops is a story about Peter Poop and his family. Peter is a shy Poop and wants to ride the Flush Flume in the Toilet Swimming Pool like the rest of his family. Sarah wishes he would peep out at the right time, but he is so shy he pops his head out shyly at some inconvenient times.

Meet The Poops is written to help parents of children that have a sometimes unexplained and seemingly irrational fear of passing a poop or using the toilet. It is written to take the emphasis off the child to use the toilet, instead removing pressure and blame. Peter Poop causes the accidents and needs your child’s help, an entirely different approach.



Same Heart Beating Inside: What Everyone Needs To Know About Elder Care

by E.L. Monaghan

Have you got aging parents, grandparents or other family members? Are you getting older yourself and are worried about what the future holds for you? Maybe you

work in the health care field and want to learn how you can work with the elderly, or teach others how to give the best possible care to our seniors.

Whatever the case, you need to read this book to get a look inside what many of these same elderly parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and

friends would say, if they could.

“Same Heart Beating Inside” goes into the minds of seniors who are facing losing their independance, having to move into long term care facilities, and who are

already living in these facilities requiring around the clock care.

There are many books talking about the importance of exercise to keep the body mobile, about the need for proper care – but none talk about the importance of

seeing them still as people, sometimes capable of making decisions – other times no longer able. We all know that the best medicine for getting older is to keep

moving as much as possible, to keep a smile on our faces, to still dance when the urge strikes.

But, sometimes aging has other ideas in mind. It might take away our physical abilities through disease much earlier than we had thought. Sometimes it takes our

memories, no matter how hard we fight to remain young at heart.

This book is about the ones who, while doing what they can to remain independant and young at heart, are getting to the point where they need more care.

Everyone needs to read this book, because we will be in these situations ourselves at some time – with ourselves, with our families and our loved ones.

Chapters included in the book are:

Section One: To My Family & Loved Onesâ?¦.

Chapter 1 – The Time Has Come

Chapter 2 – Needing More Help

Chapter 3 – Possessions

Chapter 4 – Let Me Share Some Wisdom of My Yearsâ?¦

Section Two: To my caregiversâ?¦.doctors, nurses, nurse’s aides and other healthcare workersâ?¦.

Chapter 5 – Get To Know Me

Chapter 6 – Need You to See the Real ME

Chapter 7 – For Those of Us Waiting in a Hospital For Long Term Placement

Chapter 8 – Communicate with Families

Chapter 9 – Am I Acting Different?

Chapter 10 – Dignity

Chapter 11 – Activities & Socializing

Good Tidings – A Mary O’Reilly Paranormal Mystery (Book 2)

by Terri Reid

Black Friday – the official opening of the Holiday Shopping Season and Patrice Marcum is stuck in the middle of her local superstore with a crying infant, a near hysterical desire to just abandon the diapers and milk she desperately needs, and the snowstorm of the century dumping a half-foot of snow on the parking lot outside. She needs a miracle.
The little old lady seemed sweet, but there was no way Patrice was going to leave three-month old Jeremy with a stranger. She looked outside at the snow-covered parking lot and saw yet another distressed shopper’s cart topple over in the drifts. The old lady sensed her distress and volunteered to call a store employee to help watch over Jeremy while Patrice got her car. The older gentleman, wearing a store badge with the name “Ron,” seemed too good to be true. What could be safer?
Less than five minutes later, after brushing the snow off the van and driving across the crowded and snow-packed parking lot, Patrice pulls up in front of the store. Jeremy is not there. Pushing back panic, she rushes into the store and looks around. Jeremy is not inside either. She pushes through the line at Customer Service, the associate calls Ron on the intercom, and issues a Code Adam. When Ron appears and he’s only seventeen years old, Patrice realizes the worst. “Oh God! They’ve taken my baby!”
Mary O’Reilly, Private Investigator, is decorating her office for the holiday season when the newly installed bell over her door jingles. She looks over to see a six year-old boy standing next to her desk. His name is Joey Marcum and he wants to hire Mary to find his baby brother
Mary nodded. “Okay, Joey, but I’ll want to work with the police on this one. Do you have any problems with that?”
Joey paused. “No, I guess you can talk to them.”
“That’ll be helpful.”
“But you can’t tell my mom you’re working for me,” he said, “Promise?”
“Yes, I promise.”
Joey shrugged. “I don’t think she’d understand, seeing that I’m dead, you know.”

Good enough to entertain a Christie fan!, April 23, 2013 By Walter Burgess

Lots of good characters and entertaining plot. Truly a who done it with a surprise at the end and fun to boot!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cozy And Fun Read, February 19, 2013 By L.I. LINDA (LI NY)

This book reads like a P.B.S. television mystery series. I am an Anglophile and enjoyed every page. I highly recommend it to lovers of all things British.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, August 20, 2013 By Jessica Strong

This is such a well written story. It truly is a wonderful book and I am sure that it is more than comparable to Agatha Christie. The time period is well researched and is informative of the time just after the war in England. I look forward to the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A respectable companion to Agatha Christie mysteries, September 25, 2013 By Jacqui

I have discovered this author only recently, and have now read two books in the Rachel Markham series. I am really enjoying the plots, the characterisation and the elegance of the era in which it is set. The plots are well constructed, the characters plausible and the skilful unfolding of clues and style are reminiscent of the best of the Christie novels. Rachel Markham and her husband make interesting sleuths -intelligent, ethical and methodical. I hope Kolleri will publish more of these novels.

Fantastic and well written, 19 Jan 2013 -By Forensic 321 (Amazon UK)- This is one of the better murder mysteries I have read in a while. I thoroughly enjoyed the picturesque narration.

About the Author

The whole town knows who those bones belong to, but when she also finds crates and crates of items from the sixties through the early nineties in the old root cellar, they wonder if the two things are connected.

A welcoming committee shows up at Polly’s front door and these women soon become her fast friends. Fortunately, the leader of the group is married to the Sheriff and he is there to make sure mysteries are solved and everyone stays safe, but when Polly’s old boyfriend from Boston shows up, that becomes a little more difficult.

The women might be a little older than Polly, but she finds out they might be even more wild than the friends she had when living back east. Lydia Merritt, the Sheriff’s wife, is a woman filled with love and passion. Beryl Watson is an artist and more than a little flamboyant. Andy Saner wants to organize and label the world, but loves with a great big heart and Sylvie Donovan, with her two young sons is trying to make it as a single mother.

The men in Polly’s world are just as interesting. Henry Sturtz is the carpenter and contractor in charge of construction and might have a little crush on his boss, while Doug Randall and Billy Endicott are her Jedi Knights in Shining Armor.

Polly’s immediate family might be gone, but her new family offers a great deal of love, fun and entertainment.

Read along as the extraordinary, yet quite ordinary, people in Bellingwood tell their stories.

The Abyss Above Us Book 1: A Horror Novel

by Ryan Notch

Praise for The Abyss Above Us,

“There is almost never a moment in which the reader is not compelled to ask himself, ‘Yes, but what happens next?'”
Albert Berg’s Unsanity Files

“Effective hybrid of science & cosmic horror.”
Cameron, Good Reads

In this Kindle Horror Exclusive:

There is a place in the sky where there are no stars, no matter how deeply the astronomers gaze into it. Atop a lonely mountain stands a mighty telescope that turns towards the coordinates of this abyss nightly, as if drawn to it. Receiving its commands from a computer that hasn’t existed for twenty years.

Introverted network engineer Shaw is brought in to find out why.

To his horror he finds that while the night sky may be dark, it is not silent. A signal is coming from those coordinates. Creating a sound liquid and hypnotic with layers of data that suggest anything but randomness. A siren’s song that leads to horrific suicides in everyone who listens to it.

By the time Shaw realizes this, it’s too late to stop the signal he sent back into the night. A signal obviously received, for the abyss has begun to move.

And it’s moving towards us.

More praise for The Abyss Above Us:

“…his ideas are novel, he avoids cliche at every turn, and his technical expertise shows through in his writing. ”
-James West, Amazon Reader

For everyone who misses the early days of Stephen King and John Carpenter, The Abyss Above Us is your ticket back into great sci-fi horror!

The Men Who Were Hard of Listening — Rafe Velez Mystery 5 (Rafe Velez Mysteries)

by AB Stonebridge

Landscaper Billy Byrum has a money problem. Author Dennis Tinker has a writing problem. Neither man thinks he’s doing wrong by others – until things spin out of control. Billy’s brother ends up dead and Dennis’s wife thinks he has a fan turned stalker. Both situations end up in Rafe’s lap. The question is: who’s listening and who’s about to have a nasty fall from grace? 39 Kindle pages.

Rafe Velez is a fictional character, based on a real person alive today. One thing you can be sure of: you will never, ever guess who he actually is!

As a private investigator, Rafe dealt with decades of crime, divorce, death and depravity – and barely broke even. Pushing 50, he had a few extra pounds around the middle, a sprinkling of gray hair and a cynical view of life, relieved only by a deadpan sense of humor. All of that changed one day, thanks to a windfall he didn’t expect.

Enter the world of the Rafe Velez Mysteries: intrigue, suspense, mystery, crime and a cast of characters taken from real life (and changed just enough to protect their identities – at least, until the statute of limitations expires). Enter into the mind of a man whose life is an open book – that should be suppressed!

Meet his friends, frenemies and frequent locations for his adventures:

– Detectives Toole and Williams, Robbery/Homicide’s finest – said nobody, never.

– Harpo, a stray dog that wandered into his life and has a great sense of humor.

– Jean Smalls, the first woman in a long time who threatens to take his bachelor card.

– Keith Verdi, electrical contractor, who has other talents – and secrets.

– Momo Argento, the semi-retired Don of a crime family, who keeps a hand in the game.

– The Greasy Spoon restaurant, a real tribute to truth in advertising.

– The Shiny Penny, your soon-to-be-favorite dive bar.

…and a motley crew of clients and suspects. Expect surprises: not every client is on the right side of the law and not every suspect is guilty.

You won’t always know what’s going on in the minds of the supporting characters. You will always know exactly what Rafe is thinking – unless he’s not thinking at all!

Discover The Rafe Velez Mysteries. No, really, go ahead! PG Rated – no four letter words or explicit sex, but if you read between the lines…



HUNGRY

by Bruce Jones

FIRST LINES FROM THE YEAR’S MOST TERRIFYING NOVELâ?¦

The thing moved through the woods.

It did not walk as walking is known, it had no legs, no feet, no true appendages. It was, to the forest about it, invisible, just another breath of wind, perhaps, on the summer breeze.

The thing reemerged, sluggish, from a long timeless sleep begun when the Earth was young, the forests and their animal life primitive and still themselves evolving.

Now, as it roamed modern meadows, consciousness rising by incremental stages, the thing began to grasp with nascent recall the significance of the wildlife life around itâ?¦began to understand these visible creatures around with a newly awakened, keenly demanding awareness.

It was the sense of hungerâ?¦and it bloomed deep, expanding quickly into a gnawing insistence that pushed all other senses aside.

The thing was ravenousâ?¦

NOW, FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE DEADENDERS, SHIMMER AND DIRE HOUSE, COMES THE ONE BOOK YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT BE ABLE TO PUT DOWNâ?¦UNTIL IT’S COMPLETELY SATED.

A Perfect Setup (A Sami Saxton Novel)

by Douglas Wickard

~Early praise for A PERFECT SETUP
â??â??â??â??â?? A PERFECT SETUP “It is a positive relief to read a sequel where the heroine doesn’t bounce back happy & into the fray.”

A PERFECT SETUP “…the final scene left me wanting more, needing to know. And, therein lies, for me, its brilliance.”

“…Wickard delves into the sordid reality and excitement of affairs, domination, submission, & abuse.” A PERFECT SETUP

“The novel does not shrink from confronting the realities of trauma and PTSS.”

â??â??â??â??â?? “Certainly equal to and in my opinion even superior to its predecessor
A PERFECT HUSBAND

“…the return of characters who’ve become old friends; the meeting of new ones we wouldn’t want as enemies.” 5* Amazon Reviewer
Sami’s back! And this time it’s personal!

The New York Times, Daily News and New York Post all hailed her a hero!

Samantha Saxton â??owned the night,’ they reported. She was the victor, the quiet champion, the anti-heroine single-handedly destroying the career of a lethal serial killer stalking the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania for six unremitting years. The disappearance of six teenage girls and the horrific details of their deaths received national, frenzied attention and Sami Saxton became the unlikely poster woman in all the coverage.

Sami’s attempt to find a quieter, less hectic life by moving to a cabin her deceased father built years ago in the remote urban township of Montague, New Jersey didn’t turn out quite the way she’d planned.

Returning to the City, Sami purchases a spacious, fifth floor, open-airy, glass-walled condominium on the Upper West Side overlooking the Hudson Riverâ?¦another new start!

But, that night continues to haunt her…in her dreams and in her life. The nightmares persist, vivid, ongoing and relentless. Posttraumatic stress syndrome paralyzes her, keeping her a prisoner in her newly renovated home. The anxiety attacks intensify and not even prescription painkillers can relieve the anguish.

Then, the unthinkable occurs. A young, female model is found brutally murdered in a midtown hotel. And, Jerry Saxton, Sami’s ex-husband, is taken into custody for the heinous crime.

TRUST NO ONE!

What Readers are Saying

Andrew Scorah’s down to earth style keeps the characters real and

totally believable. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who

enjoys a good thriller with unexpected twists and turns.’ Ali

 ‘I was hooked from the beginning when starting the novel and I couldn’t

leave it before the end! At a moment it reminded me Cormac Mcarthy in

his Border trilogy.’ Francis Laveaux (France)

If you ever wanted a pillow-thumping, sweat-generating read, then look no

further than,’Border Town Blues.’ Andrew Scorah’s keyboard must have

been on fire when he wrote this. With characters like ‘Jimmy the Horse’

at his local watering hole, to double dealing post-Escobar’s Medellin

Cartel, to villains with more top drawer connections than a string of

popper beads…Jimmy Doyle (the main protagonist) and his cute sidekick,

Jamie Lee, are in deep doo doo right from the off…’ Rags Raggsy Daniels

Manufacturing heroin from the poppy fields of Afghanistan, the rogue agency conceals its activity in empty chicken houses and backwoods sheds.

Guilt is just a matter of how much you understand the bigger picture.



Perspective

by William Louison

Silence filled the empty corridors. The metal walls were cold and dark, and shadow was everywhere…It was an edifice of placidity, eerily quiet, and creepily dark. The structure felt abandoned…He awoke to the sound of his own pounding heart, thumping tiredly inside his chest. It sounded so loud in the silence, like a giant drum beaten on in the dead of night. Instantly a rush of cold attacked his body and he shivered; the first sign of movement…
Four people awake in the darkness. Their memories are lost to them. They cannot remember their own names. They do not know where they are.
They make their way through dark corridors, searching for answers. On their search for freedom and peace of mind, they find themselves trapped. And in the dark, fingers are pointed, accusations are made, and they realize that, perhaps, what they should fear the most is each other…

Excerpt…

I had always felt that one could describe how the Dodo looked in just four words: Golden pools of light. But to really do it justice you had to describe who the Dodo was.

In the corner, by the door, sat the owner. An ex-patriot Frenchman we called the Patron. His unwritten rule stated that he didn’t mind who you were, or what you were up to, so long as you paid for your drinks, danced at little and left the place as you found it.

Sometimes, after we had closed our doors against the early morning light, he would tell stories of the Duke that he had once entertained here, and how he had prevented the band from playing anything too blue. We always joked that he’d open up a royal tea shop if it would attract the upper set. But despite all our jokes, it was well known that the Patron could remember the face of everyone that walked into his club and what it was that they were after on their newest visit. Their drinks would come quickly, and the food prepared just how they liked it. There were, so it was understood, no exceptions.

In one of the darker corners I saw the Madame, the Patron’s mistress-not-wife we all supposed, whispering applesauce to a moustachioed giant of a man. He had turned raspberry on a particular word and, bristling his whiskers, was taken away behind a curtain and I saw no more. There was a place for everything in the Dodo Club, the Patron would whisper to the newest of members, if you had the money and the inclination for it.

On this evening, however, it was packed with good sorts. Some business men were charming clients by the stage. The drinks were reasonable and the mood was tempting and it was a good place to make new friends.

Some girls had come to show off their newest, shortest and flattest dresses. They were dropped in the waist and the hems rose week-on-week, which gave the boys much to look forward to in future.

And the boys had come for the girls. Groups of three or more were dotted around the place and stood up to press an elbow, dancing in pairs in fits-and-starts, which is how it usually went. Sitting back down they ordered more drinks and as the night wore on the dances became shorter and drinks more frequent.

Barry rescues Croatian secret agent Helena Galian from a small private plane that has crashed into the Chesapeake Bay. She carries evidence of atrocities at Serbian concentration camps. Her goal is to convince the United States to recognize Croatia as a sovereign nation. Stefan Jankovic is the son of a martyred Serbian warlord. His mission is to intercept the documents Helena carries, but his true purpose is known only to himself. Barry becomes infatuated with Helena.

From the Beatles to Blair (with some of the bad behaviour in between)

by John Rigbey

“FROM THE BEATLES TO BLAIR (and some of the bad behaviour in between)” is JOHN RIGBEY’s second Michael Gregory novel. It is story of wickedness and corruption in high places in government and in the police service and an account of whitewash and manipulation, of murder and of blackmail, both in the sixties and the present day.

Following a professional hit on a retired detective chief inspector, Gregory is deputed to find the killer, at the same time tracing the origins of a large sum of money traced to the dead man. A second murder, this time in Spain, opens up the enquiry and in coming to terms with the past lives of both victims, Gregory has a detailed insight into the gangster world of the so-called “swinging era”.

Meet “The Off Couple” and follow them to France and Spain as they go about their grisly business. Learn how they are tied into the web of blackmail enfolding a loose-living MP and prospective Blair successor, and how they come to a shocking end at the hands of the enigmatic Arthur.

Under pressure to resolve the investigation in a manner which he finds unacceptable, at the same time attempting to come to terms with his own matrimonial disharmony, Gregory seeks comfort in the arms of black solicitor Cammie Cornish. Confronted with the duplicity and double standards of “those on the opposite side of Parliament Square”, finally, he is obliged to take drastic steps to ensure that justice is done.

“BEATLES TO BLAIR” is written by a man who knows his subject: JOHN RIGBEY has truly “been there, done that and got the T shirt”……



Art Conspiracy

by John Warren Self

Arnold Becker, MD ardently detested polite Philadelphia society his entire adult life until his death at seventy-nine years old in 1951. He was killed in a car wreck not far from his home, a mansion outside the city.

He accumulated, perhaps the finest, world-class art collection ever known, valued at 35 billion dollars in the early twenty-first century. He purchased the art from the great artist when they were young. Then he masterfully arranged the pieces with furniture settings at his mansion outside of Philadelphia.

He thought of the people of the wealthy society as elitists. They never accepted him. He often refused to lend any of his paintings to the Philadelphia Art Museum throughout his life. He replied to their requests with nasty notes declining to open up his collection to the public.

His mansion was converted into an art museum over the years prior to his death. It limited viewing privileges mainly only allowing students there. His foundation continued that practice after his death. There were many court actions against his trust to end that. Then there was an action to move his art collection to Philadelphia, ignoring the terms of his outdated will.

This move was especially sensitive because the powers to be were relocating his world-class art collection to Philadelphia by court order. The replacement site was right next to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the establishment that Arnold Becker ardently detested.

Bubba Reese thought that this 35 billion dollar collection should be his as the closest surviving relative of Arnold Becker. He felt that way even though there was no confirmed proof that he and Becker were actually related. His evidence was that he recently read an article about the collection, and he kind of put two and two together. He wanted to do all that he could to stop the collections relocation as if he cared about Arnold Becker’s last wishes.

Herb Danielle loved the collection that he visited often even in violation of the trust. It was located in his town. He did not know what he should do to stop its relocation.

This local shop owner wrote a news article about Arnold Becker, MD. It read; Arnold Becker wanted to leave behind his permanent institution of art work. This art collection consists of European and Harlem Renaissance masterpiece paintings. It is the work of the masters that he housed at his mansion in suburban Philadelphia.

This art museum has evolved into a scandal over the years since his death. Now, there is a court action to relocate the collection to the City of Philadelphia, beside the art museum there.

Dr. Becker drew up will and trust near the end of his life. The trust stipulated that his collection of fine art remain as he left it. This document states that these paintings shall never be moved. So relocation of the collection violates the terms of the trust agreement.

The argument against moving it to Philadelphia is fundamental. It destroys Arnold Becker’s unique artistic vision. The paintings are in special locations that he created for them. The collection draws much of its energy from the way that the many very important works are arranged on the walls of his museum.

The individuals that were in charge of the collection failed to abide by what was said in the trust agreement over those many years of its existence. They ended up betraying the great art-lover’s inspired vision. Becker’s will stated that the paintings shall never be moved.

Then there was a plan to relocate his collection to a new public facility in Philadelphia. The argument against moving the collection to Philadelphia fundamentally destroys Arnold Becker’s unique artistic vision. It also violates the terms of the trust agreement. Then Herb met Bubba at the old museum.

They talked about the move. Bubba spoke about an explosion in Michigan, and that the new museum should have the same fate.

The story

VISIONS FROM THE PAST â?? A RACE TO SAVE HIS FRIENDS

The year is 1994. Jack Briscoe is a loner who is never alone. He has two passions: woodwork and womanizing, and despite his popularity with women he leads a solitary lifestyle, unable to hold down a steady relationship – not that he really wants one.

Working from a rented barn, sleeping in his van, and constantly short of money, his prospects are dire. He feels that his situation couldn’t get any worse. Then one night, when on one of his many casual assignations, he is stricken by a curse, and his ability to work – and his sexual prowess – are cruelly torn away.

Lost in the town’s outskirts, he is inexplicably drawn to the house of his old school friend, unaware that inside his friend’s wife is also facing a dilemma, believing she is about to die.

Far away in the Scottish Highlands, Chrissie Meikle, a modern-day High Priestess, with a coven of half-hearted pagan worshippers, has unwittingly set in play some ancient magic, with its roots stretching back hundreds of years.

In this tale of adventure, mystery, crime, witchcraft, and the occult, – where the past bleeds through into the present – Briscoe must find a way to bring an end to these visions that he feels threaten his freedom, sanity and even his very existence. Is an ancient oak carving of a monstrous face the key? Or is it his ruthless enemy determined to use its power against him?

When the paranormal malevolence attacks two of his former women friends, he must act, travelling to Scotland, where yet another adversary awaits him, along with the haunting memory of a girl in a white dress, as he attempts to exorcise the past.

But maybe it’s the past that is exorcising him.

The Applicant

by Michael Condon

The Applicant

Palmetto Review

Michael Condon

“You will learn in time not to expect things. You must turn your expectations to another area of your mind.” – Lui, in The Applicant

In The Applicant, Michael Condon has written a thought-provoking, well plotted mystery. The reader begins by thinking it’s one thing, then decides it’s another, then gives up and simply reads with excitement to see what it will turn out to be.

Martin Anderson is a recent college grad; or is he? He is a Buddhist monk in training; or is he? He is a spy, he is an accountant, he is a former military man. One thing is clear: Anderson has lost his memory. And he is being pursued. By a man named Todd. Or Ted. Or both. The tale begins when Anderson meets Lui, an ancient monk, in Thailand. Like a stream-of-consciousness movie, the story jumps around, keeping the reader enthralled. Anderson finds himself on a mountain, meets Lui, is given the name Jin, is taught the arts of self-defense. He wakes up again as Anderson, traveling to Hong Kong; his passport indicates he has visited Thailand, and has a visa to go to China, but these are false papers. Or are they? He has been sent to do something (espionage?) but he decides not to. Throughout the story, Anderson exercises his will, though he has no reliable memories. He has basic morality, and that seems to pull him through as he tries to unravel the mystery of who he is or was. Eventually, he meets Polly, a waitress with empathy, and eventually, he and Polly will try to save each other by saving the world, or a small piece of it.

With all the twists and turns of the story, some violence and some highly varied settings, Condon shows his gifts as a teller of tales. Such passages as this, as Anderson examines the content’s of Ted’s desk drawer, show just how scary-well Condon can compose: “He seemed to have spent a great deal on money on unusual things, such as a plastic mannequins to wooden legs. No one today used wooden legs. Also on the list was vampire blood.” The Applicant is far too short for a novel, even a bit skimpy for a novelette, at a scant 16,000+ words (standard for a novelette is 20,000 or more). One feels though, that Condon could have written more, could have expanded the plot considerably, since he has the talent for constructing a thrilling, subtle story line. Perhaps in the future he will come back to the puzzling, at times shocking, always intriguing story of Martin Anderson, and will give the reader more to chew on.



Eighty Eight

by A.L. McAuley

This is an explosive story of miracles and mayhem, kidnapping and killings, affecting the entire human race.

It begins in the quiet waters of Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland when marine biologist Doctor Eva Ballantine makes an astonishing discovery while studying a unique species of algae.

Three thousand miles away in Chicago, Valentine Sere is finalising his hostile takeover of BION Pharmaceuticals, his father’s multi-national drugs company.

When he promotes Kay Kane to BION vice president, no one could have imagined the horrifying consequences.

â??88′ is no ordinary thriller. It’s not about good and evil; it is about events that may change our world forever.

Death of Life

by F. C. Blair

Manâ??the most abhorrent thing in existence.

And our hero is the epitome of how disgusting Earth’s most hideous inhabitants can become. Tom is such a black being, such a black abomination. Nevertheless, he is a being that deserves to have its story told.

Witness and take part in the first act of an epic journey that will take you through all levels of humanity, from the deepest abyss of foulnessâ??foulness which condones men ravishing innocents and suchlike atrocitiesâ??to the loftiest power that can take hold of us: love, but love in its purest and noblest formâ??selfless love.

“Compassion? No. Empathy? No! Love? Yuck!” said Tom.

Now, the question presents itself: is it possible for such a man to learn about the real values of life? Can he be saved? Can he be resurrected from his life of death?

A word of warning: success is not guaranteed.

Good luck!

Awkward Moments (not found in your average) Children’s Bible – Vol. 1

by Horus Gilgamesh

NOT FOR KIDS (or iPad)!

What began as a private online joke among interfaith friends quickly skyrocketed to meet the demands of the thousands of fans and critics of the controversial work. Within hours, the book became the #1 Bestseller in Amazon.com’s Humor & Religion category! Combining actual Bible verses with more than 30 whimsical original illustrations, Awkward Moments uses humor to encourage people from all walks of life to think, perhaps for the first time, about how the Bible continues to shape our culture.


BEWARE – NOT FOR KIDS! This is definitely not your average children’s Bible! If you thought the bestseller “Go The F**k To Sleep” was inappropriate for story-time with kids, you haven’t seen anything yet! Leave it to the Bible! Foreskins Fetishes? Unicorn Murders? Boiled Babies? Messiah, MIA? Selling Daughters? Cannibalism Club? Genetic Breakthroughs? Demonic Bacon? Gagged Women? Jihad Jesus? You bet! And much more!


From the opening foreword by acclaimed author David G. McAffee, to the challenging commentaries and interactive games at the end, Awkward Moments Children’s Bible is much more than an irreverent book for your coffee table! Readers of all faiths will find themselves laughing out loud while being encouraged to think about the Bible in a new way.


Let’s be honest – there are some things in the Good Book that are just… awkward! There are verses we’d like to forget or that have been changed throughout the centuries. There are many verses you’ve never heard before in church, let alone seen in your average children’s Bible! Not to mention the verses that have been added over the centuries!


Most people were raised in the faith chosen by their family. Young children learn a few Bible stories taken out of context and accept them without question. (On what basis could they possibly question their parents or church leaders?) After decades of repetition and tradition, it’s understandable that we might put our beliefs on auto-pilot and just nod as a pastor repeats the verses and ideas that are already familiar and comfortable to us. It’s no wonder that recent studies show an incredible lack of Biblical knowledge among Christians – 55% unable to even name the four Gospels of the New Testament – the very foundation of Christianity!


The Goal? Awkward Moments encourages readers to really understand what is in their Bibles and think for themselves about the context of Biblical teaching. The 32 color illustrations and included commentaries will likely challenge some readers to reflect on how religion continues to shape the lives and culture of future generations. If readers happen to laugh out loud and enjoy the interactive puzzles and games in the mean time – it’s just an added bonus!



The Village Idiot Reviews (A Laugh Out Loud Comedy)

by Pete Sortwell

Join Brian, as he tries to woo the girl that works in the local shop, will passing out face down in super glue while trying to make her a gift hinder his chances of getting her to go out with him?

Will Father Frederick, an alcoholic vicar who has a slight issue with stalking be able to win back the heart of a woman he loved a long time ago?

And will Ethel, who thinks that throwing hard rice instead of confetti in a Bride Groom’s face is an acceptable form of sport, be able to catch whichever one of these two losers in love with her trick as they step out of the church on the happy day?

Written entirely in the form of product reviews, we guarantee you’ve never read a book quite like this before. Hilarious and wholly original, The Village Idiot Reviews pokes gentle fun at the more obscure corners of your favourite e-commerce sites – and introduces the most bonkers set of countryside dwellers since The Vicar of Dibley.

**FOREWORD***

Every village has an idiot, we know that, but what if there was a village full of them? It wouldn’t be the best place to take a windy walk, would it?

Furthermore, what if all those idiots suddenly found the joys of online shopping and started reviewing everything they brought?

Well, â??What if’ no more. Here is The Village Idiot Reviews.



The General Store

by Wright Forbucks

THE GENERAL STORE is a wicked sex comedy about what happens when small-town folks start minding their neighbors’ funny business.

Set in Apple, Massachusetts, the laughs begins when Mayor Happy Munson betrays yet another “friend.” But this time, it’s an old man with the money and brains to get even. Helping the old man seek revenge is Jebediah Jones, the well-endowed owner of the General Store who has been arrested for, literally, hanging out. Offended parties include Luke Keegle and his mother, Doris. Luke is an Internet whiz kid, a devout Christian, and owner of ColdPray.com, the web’s destination spot for purchasing “chastity wear.” Doris Keegle is the chairman of the town’s restoration committee. She wants to return Apple’s countryside to its original state. Her main target is the personal dump of her next door neighbor and Apple’s legendary biker bad boy, Rake Davis, who has been half-burying his old Ford pick-up trucks for decades. Bradford Bender, the town’s best and only lawyer, has been hired to fix the mess, but Sally Munson, the first lady of Apple and a registered martial arts instructor, is opposing him. And, she’s not going down without a fight. Also in the fray are the world’s most famous environmentalists, Crunchy and Macrame Montana, who are fighting to save the eeeking plover, a tiny bird whose near extinction has been carefully chronicled by the town’s historian, a socially awkward man named Bruce Pane who is living with an inflatable lover named Ms. Wheezyâ?¦

THE GENERAL STORE is Wright Forbucks’ pathetic attempt to author a mainstream comedy that will generate sufficient income to purchase a bean burrito and a small Mountain Dew.

Other works by Wright Forbucks include THE WALKING MAN, BILLY GRIST and EVEN STEVEN.

Please note: THE GENERAL STORE is Rated R due to crass language (85 F bombs) and sexual content. It contains 59,000 words.



How to Lose Your Virginity …and how not to (Real Stories about the First Time)

by Shawn Wickens

Whether stud or dud, hot dish or cold fish, you’re never the same after you first “do the deed.” But how wild, weird, or earth shattering was it for your neighbor, the person next to you on the bus, or your dentist? In How to Lose Your Virginityâ?¦ and How Not To, compiled from 1,000 face-to-face interviews across North America, Shawn Wickens makes us transfixed voyeurs in scores of others’
seminal “coming” of age moments.

From Kelsie Testa in Jerk Magazine: “A compilation of shocking yet heartwarming tales of orifices, secretions, and vulgarity that pleasantly ends in an orgasm. From condom follies to mixed-race orgies, Wickens proves that no formula exists when it comes to this seminal and ‘ground-breaking’ eventâ?¦.

One central message remains the same for all of these first-timers: losing your virginity is weird and exhilarating, whether you lost it with your middle-school bus driver named Frank at age 13 or you waited until marriage.”

Featured in the New York Daily News, The Huffington Post and Jezebel.com. Breakthru Radio calls How to Lose Your Virginity, “…an entertaining and enlightening read for virgins and non-virgins alike.”

A portion of the proceeds is donated to RAINN (Rape and Incest National Network)

Claire’s challenges include raising her two small children, standing firm against her manipulative soon-to-be-ex-husband, and the new employee in her department, Billy, that challenges her ideas of eternal singlehood.

Through friendship, laughter, and tests of character, both women seek freedom from their baggage and pasts as they embrace their independence.



Hong Kong 97. Drugs Sex Money Corruption.

by Gregory A. Waldron

Jake Stratton comes across as the perfect corporate citizen, but he is a rogue, a cheat, and a liar.

As the sales manager for an American publishing firm in Hong Kong during the late 1990s, Stratton has it easy. His superiors are far away in New York, the local distributor colludes with him to embezzle funds, and he spends his idle days drinking, smoking dope, and womanising.

When his company forms a global joint venture with a competitor, Stratton suddenly finds himself saddled with a vicious new boss determined to reveal his past crimes. As the auditors begin to reveal Stratton’s dubious past, he realizes that his only hope for great wealth is a final corrupt sales deal, but can he pull it off in time?

Hong Kong 97 is the definitive novel of life in this fascinating city during the years immediately following the handover to China.

Many of the Anecdotes come from the humorous sides of unlikely places like hospitals, country clubs, schools, vacation homes, funeral homes, summer camp, nursing homes, vacation homes and home, homes. Nearly all pick up on human nature and human interest! Most of the Anecdotes feature real “Characters,” including myself; people you will always remember forget! Others feature great places; and many feature people and places interacting. It runs the gamut from rural living to urban life, from laughing out loud to smug smirking. Chapters and parts can be read together or separately. Many of the anecdotes can stand alone.

Monstrum: The Vampire in the Detective Story

by Caroline Stikkelbroeck

My approach to the vampire detective highlights its connections to the private detective’s story and reveals the monstrous investigators’ debt to early feminist forms of detection -specifically in their reformation of the’ other’ and of traditional forms of power and authority. Seen in this light the movement of horror’s imaginary ‘other’ into the rational world of detection can be seen as not an abrupt breach of detection’s realist conventions, but an almost seamless transition into symbolic spaces that point to the detective’s primary function — to make sense of the senseless. It is in this light that I explore the monster that is a detective as a symbol that is also a sense-maker, and a quintessential postmodern figure. I argue that the distinctions between monsters and ‘others’, and between popular narratives and postmodern religion have faded, culminating in a character that can not only model ‘otherness’ as an exemplary condition, but also provide strategies for modeling the form of active postmodern subjectivity that postmodern theorist Jim Collins’ (1989) conceives of as heretical activity.

In deepest darkest Cornishire Detective Sergeant Leon Karno of Cornishire CID has several thorny problems to grapple with in this new case.
