When a road project forces the unearthing of a handful of graves they discover a child’s skeleton mislaid in the ditch, and the mystery of Jilly, a child too young to have words, begins to unfold. The residents of the cemetery, unable to cross over, are a restless lot. Forced into interacting with people they would never have spent time with in life, they pick at each others’ wounds, digging at their personal failures and closely guarded secrets.

Meanwhile, among the living, Eva Bontrager is recovering from a brain hemorrhage she suffered in a riding accident. She remembers nothing of her sixteen years prior to waking up in the hospital. Handed a second chance with their daughter, the Bontragers are so overwhelmed with gratitude that they are willing to accept that Eva is now differentâ??perhaps even someone entirely different than their daughter.

The two stories are woven togetherâ??back and forth between the living and the deadâ??as they unfold, seemingly independent of each other. Or are they? Between is a haunting little ghost story that will make you think differently the next time you visit a cemetery. It is a story of relationships and finding personal redemption.

He believes he’s inherited his father’s violent temper and alcoholism and is determined not to succumb to them. He values honesty above all else and focuses on working hard and avoiding emotional attachment at any cost, even an empty life.

But empty lives can be filled–at least for a short while–and Dallas sets out to seduce Cassandra.

Jytte Fredholm – International Wildlife Photojournalist.

I have known Craig Ferreira personally and professionally for many years. Passionate, intense and full of surprises, Craig has found a new way to channel his immense creative energies by writing a debut novel about the world that he knows best – great white sharks.

“The Shark” is crime fiction that’s heart pounding, testosterone-driven, unique and as unpredictable as the subject of the title. – Mark Kaczmarczyk, Documentary Filmmaker

Craig Ferreira is synonymous with sharks, even though he has seen more white sharks than the rest of the world; he still acts, as it’s his first time when he spots one. He lives and breathes white sharks. – Fredrik Ã?ström, Captain – Swedish Military Intelligence

A fascinating and exciting story – just keep writing. – Peter Benchley, author of Jaws and The Deep.

‘Ocean adventure at its best!’ – The Independent.

If the book had Clive Cussler’s name on it, it would have sold a million copies. Dr John McKiever.

Sex, Rain, and Cold Fusion

by A.R. Taylor

Prepare to meet physicist David Oster, a big thinker, a charming cad who flees Caltech and his three girlfriends for the Pacific Northwest, pastoral fantasy firmly in hand. Whatever will he do with all that rain, yet another beautiful woman, and several crazy physicists intent on his ruin? Obviously he needs to discover some entirely new physics principle, as yet unnamed, but can he deliver?


“You need A. R. Taylor’s new book at least as much as you need the items identified in her title: “Sex, Rain, and Cold Fusion.” There is no author funnier or smarter, nobody who packs her punch. She assumes unshakeable residence in the back of your mind. Along the way she reveals a hitherto undiscovered principle of physics: the force called A. R. Taylor.”

Joseph Di Prisco, novelist, ALL FOR NOW.

“A. R. Taylor is wildly funny in a very serious sort of way – thought-provoking, cool, she doesn’t throw a baseball like a girl, neither does she write like one. Her work involves boisterous, hilarious fun, tinged with a poignant vibe. I want her to write a book about me.”

Diana Ketcham, Writer and Editor, San Francisco

“I haven’t been allowed to read SEX, RAIN, AND COLD FUSION , but I am going to get a copy when the folks give me my allowance on Saturday. It’s about doing it (fusion) while taking a cold shower. The author is older than my mother but hotter. She lives near us and sits on the porch in a bikini. I deliver her newspaper and think about her all the time, even when I’m taking a cold shower.”

Andrew Hoyem, Publisher, San Francisco

“A.R. Taylor is one of my favorite writers, and SEX RAIN and COLD FUSION is funny and wise, wet and wonderful.”

Jeanne Martinet, author of ETIQUETTE FOR THE END OF THE WORLD.

From the Great Pyramids of Egypt through the wilds of Antarctica, they circle the globe on the heels of a mystery thousands of years in the making, pursued by forces intent on their destruction, proving once and for all that there are some mysteries in this world too dangerous to be solvedâ?¦

For in the dark waits a terrifying menace.

The Long and the Short of it.

by Jan Ruth

An emotive collection of stories and excerpts from the Welsh Mountains of Snowdonia.

Five short stories, followed by a full chapter from each of Jan’s three full length novels. Over thirty thousand words of humour, the complications of relationships and the poignancy of love.

‘The shorts are what I’d call life-slices, like eavesdropping, a fly on the wall of somebody’s life. We see the indecisions, the moments of clarity, the realities of everyday life and yet there’s a turning point in each, where our main characters make life changing decisions that may or may not be for the best. And like real life – we never know. How would your life have turned out if you’d turned left instead of right, married one person instead of another? Clever, satisfying stories that make you think.’D.Bennett.‘Quirky’ and ‘evocative’ seem odd words to find together in a description of a story, but that’s this author’s great achievement: she succeeds in portraying utterly believable and familiar human relationships against a background of rich, earthy geographical location. We can see the mist-wreathed North Welsh hills, smell the soil and the rain.’T.Stevens.

This publication is written in British English. Spellings and grammatical conventions are conversant with the UK.

The Source: Book One of the Source Trilogy

by William G. Gee

Despite the best efforts of the US Government’s Military and Intelligence Services to cover up events behind a devastating massacre of Apache helicopters and their crews during the Gulf War, years later, a brutal robbery in Russia suddenly connects the two events with deadly consequences. A single stolen object – once part of a Nazi treasure horde – could now play its part in the annihilation of all life on Earth; and only one man knows the full reason why, and how Armageddon may be averted.

David Woods, Billionaire Chairman of the global Woods Corporation, holds the potential key to mankind’s survival; a millennia old secret to the destruction of civilisations and entire races – a secret that he has always fervently hoped would remain so, knowing only too well the true consequences of its revelation.

Resigning from his Corporation, he is forced to activate a plan that has been in place for thousands of years; used successfully only once before, but at a tragic cost. Recruiting an unsuspecting former student in London, and then convincing him to join in a war against the deadliest foe imaginable may be the least of his problems, even though he is the key to the Earth’s survival; convincing world-leaders to help will be an entirely different matter, when a prize worthy of deceit and duplicity is dangled before them.

So begins a globe spanning action-adventure from the America’s, Europe and Asia to The Atlantic and The Pacific Oceans, and far beyond. The odds look overwhelming, with seemingly insurmountable set-backs against an enemy with powers beyond human imagination, and deadlier than any conceivable foe; and if the Earth can somehow survive, nothing will be the same again – World-History will need to be re-written, and perceived legends will become fact – but it’s a big if â?¦

A New Sort of Horror Story

On the run for more than a century, cursed with the blood of a chupacabra, Ricardo must stay one step ahead of Tomas Morales, the man who has sworn vengeance and maintained pursuit through every sleepy hollow where Ricardo’s spent a lifetime (and then some) hiding. Ricuardo craves a life of quiet, but how can that ever happen when the horror lurks inside him?

Ë?Ë?Ë? Realm & Sands Readers LOVE to Read! Here’s What They’re Saying About Cursed:

“This is a rather, a poignant, dark tale with a dose of harsh and horrific violence thrown in. It simmers at a low boil but spills over into something approaching the ghastly. It reminded me of a solid X-FILES or SUPERNATURAL episode. I enjoyed this very much.”

“Platt and Truant do the same excellent job as they did in Unicorn Western, immersing us in an atmospheric world (contemporary Southwest U.S. in this case) and the plight of a sympathetic but horrific monster fugitive. This thing has heart…. and claws… and bony spines popping out of its back….”

“I dove into the book and had one of those rare, great reading experiences where you’re just a few pages into a book and you ALREADY know that you love it. That feeling stuck with me throughout the story and is still with me as I write this review. I like the main character, Ricardo, a lot. He’s very compelling and I hope there are many more stories to follow about him. Unlike the authors’ other stories that have a lot of humor in them, Cursed is a serious story. As much as I love their funny stuff, I think it’s especially cool that Platt and Truant have gone into an entirely different genre and tone here – and they totally nailed it and put out a very entertaining page-turner. These guys are great storytellers.”
