Star Maker

by J.M. Nevins

Set in the mid-1980’s Sunset Strip rock scene, Star Maker offers an all-access pass to the rise and fall of life in the music industry through the eyes of two up and coming stars: one aspiring executive and one aspiring artist.

Kit McKenna was determined to make a new life by moving out to Los Angeles where the rock scene was taking off. Fueled by blind ambition, she gladly left behind her sordid past in a rock band as the primary songwriter. Being a big-shot entertainment attorney and record executive was her chosen path now.

Once Kit landed in Hollywood, she quickly realized that the road was not paved in gold as she had thought. Rock bands were getting record deals almost weekly, but as a female manager she was constantly overlooked, not taken seriously, or even worse, harassed and propositioned. All of that changed one day when she signed Joe Arden to a legendary rock band as their flashy, new, lead guitarist, quickly turning him into a guitar god overnight. Then she met Sully Foxx, frontman of the struggling Sunset Strip rock band, Gypsy Tango and her whole life changed.

Sully had talent in spades. Kit recognized it from the moment he took the stage and started singing. She was already in over her head managing other bands on the Strip and juggling law school, but she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to manage Gypsy Tango. They were her diamond in the rough. She knew she could take them to that coveted spot that marked success: a seven figure record deal.

Despite the long hours, egomaniacs, and chauvinistic battles Kit was rising to the top and taking Gypsy Tango with her. Her focus was sharp, her desire strong, and her will unstoppable. And with Sully’s constant support and love, she felt invincible. But when things start to go off the rails and the success gets too big to manage for Joe and Gypsy Tango, Kit has to make tough choices that not only affect the band’s future, but her own.



Dourado: A Dane Maddock Adventure (Dane Maddock Adventures Book 1)

by David Wood

A sunken treasure. An ancient Biblical artifact. A mystery as old as humankind. On January 25, 1829, the Portuguese brig Dourado sank off the coast of Indonesia, losing its cargo of priceless treasures from the Holy Land. One of these lost relics holds the key to an ancient mystery. But someone does not want this treasure to come to light. When her father is murdered while searching for the Dourado, Kaylin Maxwell hires treasure hunter and former Navy Seal Dane Maddock and his partner Uriah “Bones” Bonebrake, to locate the Dourado, and recover a lost Biblical artifact, the truth behind which could shake the foundations of the church, and call into question the fundamentally held truths of human existence. Join Dane and Bones on a perilous adventure that carries them from the depths of the Pacific to ancient cities of stone as they unravel the mystery of the Dourado.

“A fast-paced adventure with action to spare. Dane Maddock is a hero cut from the Dirk Pitt mold, and “Bones” Bonebrake is the best sidekick around. If you like your thrillers with a touch mystery and Biblical archaeology, Dourado is the book for you.” — Megalith Book Reviews

“Dourado is a brisk read, reminiscent of early Cussler adventures. You’ll definitely want more of Maddock.” — Sean Ellis, author of Dark Trinity- Ascendant



Line Camp Christmas and Other Cowboy Stories

by Gene Shelton

Cowboying is not a glamorous job. It’s dangerous. A horse fall, a broken saddle girth, a boot hung in a stirrup, being bucked off in rocks or cactus patches, stepped on by a thousand-pound-plus horse, gored by a mad cow or bull, broken bones, snakebite, scorpion stings and other mishaps fifty miles from the nearest doctor, frostbite and sunburn are a few of the hazards of the job.

But the cowboy life has its perks, too.

In this collection of mostly true stories, an old ranch hand enjoys a special kind of Christmas. A greenhorn learns to round up yearlings the hard way. Cantankerous chuck wagon cooks serve up bacon and biscuits, and a cowboy drifter named Fargo makes the mistake of roping a bobcat.

Four new stories by longtime western author Gene Shelton:

  • Line Camp Christmas
  • Hard Luck Cowboy
  • Chuck Wagon Cooks: The Cranky Side of Camp Life
  • Rope Crazy: A Case Study
  • Gene Shelton, a Texas native, grew up on a big ranch in the Panhandle, where many of his stories are set. He is the author of 26 published novels, about half of them under his own name and the rest under pseudonyms. As a young man he worked as a ranch hand and horse trainer, and rode bulls and roped calves and steers in rodeos on his free weekends.

    A Brooklyn Love Affair: Vixen & Gino’s Story

    by Tya Marie

    Vixen Williams has always been known as a woman of many faces. The fiercely devoted one she uses for her best friend, the one of a lover and confidant to her fiancé, and the real one she keeps reserved for looking in the mirror and battling her inner demons. Life is fairly normal for Vixen until her verbally abusive mother reenters her life, dredging up traumatic childhood memories, and bringing a handsome stranger into the mix with her devious antics causing Vixen to reprise her role as caregiver and bread winner.

    Gino Romano is infamous for many reasons: his notoriety for being one of the youngest king pins in New York City, the cold manner in which he handles business, and the notable political ties he’s managed to create along the way through “profit sharing.” However, the most prominent thing he’s known for is the ice fortress he’s built around his heart. Because of his past, Gino keeps women at an arms length, believing it hard to find one who could accept the scarred past he comes with. Until he lays eyes on Vixen.

    Brought together for all the wrong reasons, Vixen and Gino find a common ground that not only develops into a budding friendship, but sparks a love affair. From the moment they become one they must fight to protect their love from those who plan to destroy it by any means necessary, one of which being the very reason Vixen ran away from home ten years ago in the dead of night.

    Will the forces determined to see Gino and Vixen destroyed win? Or will their love prevail? Set in a spicy Brooklyn backdrop, A Brooklyn Love Affair brings to life pain, forgiveness, and the never ending possibility of finding love.
