Titanic: Newly Discovered Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

by Holy Ghost Writer

Was the Titanic tragedy really an accident? Could it be that a secret society was behind its sinking?

Put Sherlock Holmes on the case together with Monte Cristo’s love interests and you find something like The Great Gatsby aboard Murder on the Orient Express.

This newly discovered Titanic story is a mixture of the real titanic facts merged with a romantic, action, adventure mystery.



Elly Hays

by Lori Crane

As the War of 1812 approached, the Creek Indian Nation was in the middle of a civil war. They fought brutally between themselves, as well as with the white settlers who were encroaching upon tribal land. After years of conflict with the white man, warrior Tafv Hokkolen began to realize a new strategy would be needed to crush the wave of settlers. He believed he could frighten them off Creek land and allow them to live to spread the word.

It was during this time Elly’s family moved to the eastern Mississippi Territory for the promise of low-cost land and fertile soil. She had no idea they were moving into Creek territory – into the middle of a hornet’s nest. Tafv’s band of warriors taunted them, stealing their property, killing their animals, and destroying their livelihood. Just when the family thought things couldn’t get any worse, during one of the Indian raids as Elly’s husband chased the Indians away from the farm, Tafv’s young son was killed in the pursuit. Tafv vowed revenge against Elly’s family, and a final showdown was imminent.

“Elly Hays” is based on the real-life story of Elizabeth Hays Rodgers and is the epic clash between a fearless warrior with nothing to lose and a young mother on the verge of losing everything.

It’s not the most auspicious beginning to a twenty-year friendship, but everyone’s got to start somewhere…
