Despite best laid plans, California bikers incite a gang war, the FBI undermines local police, and vigilantes take the fight to the streets. What starts out as a simple murder may soon run Sanctuary red with the blood of brothers.

Category: Literary Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A dazzling adventure, filled with all the electrifying beauty and horror of the human condition.

Akin takes place in a time void of technology and full of lore passed down by generations of ancient cultures. Across an arid land lay scattered city states and villages of people separated by social and political hierarchies. Through this vast archaic world, Akin manages to illustrate vivid human experiences that are unquestionably universal, regardless of the places we live or where we come from.

The novel centers on the journey of a boy whose struggle for survival begins when his thoughts and ideas begin diverging from values he was raised to follow. As he traverses into adulthood, his eyes open to truths about his family and community that his young mind had previously been incapable of understanding. Haunting memories of events witnessed as a child drift through his mind, creating rifts and questions he is forbidden to ask.

A tale of suffering, hope, and the human condition told against the grueling scenery of an immeasurable desert terrain, Akin is a powerful story brimming with a rare humanity.

Category: Paranormal Romance

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

“My mom had always told me – when you meet “the one,” you’ll know; they’ll captivate your heart the moment you lay eyes on them. I had always wondered, though, if my mom’s words of wisdom were finite – if they applied to everyone. Maybe those who had found their one great love were the lucky few, and maybe the rest of us would have to settle for less than earth-shattering.”

Seventeen-year-old Kat Walsh is a Gifted – a human with paranormal abilities. With her mom a former Angel and her dad a dream prophet, it’s always been in her genetic make-up to be extraordinary. Unfortunately for her, the world can’t handle the strange or unusual. So when she slips up and uses her powers at her high school in Ireland, the entire student body treats her like a freak – even the ones she thought were her closest friends.

Broken, but hopeful for a fresh start, she allows her parents to enroll her in a boarding school buried deep within the forests of a small Colorado town. At Midland Pines, School for the Gifted, she feels as though she can finally be herself; she makes new friends and even has the attention of the most popular guy in school – Levi. Everything feels normal again… or does it?

Not long after her arrival, weird dreams of an alluring boy whom she’s never met surface during the night, and the eerie, shadowy trees encircling their school seem to call to her. As these disturbing, yet enticing developments intensify, other bizarre occurrences happen – students and staff turn up missing, and mystery visitors leave gifts while she sleeps. With all of these other things vying for her attention, a desperate Levi has to fight even harder to keep her interest. But with the dreams of the attractive boy slowly captivating her heart, Kat has to make a choice – will she settle for ‘great’ Levi, or will she search for her elusive dream visitor, possibly stumbling across ‘amazing?’

From the author of the Alyx Rayer Chronicles, comes a refreshingly different Young Adult series with plenty of love, suspense, and a new take on the Paranormal.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

JERUSHA’S POISON…

…to just about everyone–particularly her adult children. Fortunately, poison is the very superfood of the satirist. Patty Friedmann, the reigning queen of black comedy, hits one out of the park with her family straight out of Tolstoy–unhappy in its own way, a uniquely twisted Southern way.

Meet the Baileys. Born and bred in a working class New Orleans neighborhood, Zib and Wilson think the thick cloud of cigarette smoke enveloping their mother is what probably killed their father. Certainly the toxicity of Jerusha’s dark, cynical attitudes has driven her children far from the nest. Wilson has escaped to Chicago, married a woman who hates him, converted to Judaism, and become a decorated professor of Organic Evolution. Zib, almost forty, has made it only as far as the Florida Panhandle, where she’s an assistant manager at the local Winn-Dixie, doomed to fending off a sleazy boss given to late night phone calls. Only one person, obviously as isolated as she is, shows Jerusha any affection: Dustin Puglia, chubby, wise, and fearless, a ten-year-old living next door with a poisonous mother of his own.

Although Wilson and Zib have forged independent lives away from their mother—as well as each other—their father’s death brings them back together for a darkly droll, yet heart-wrenching round of domestic insanity. Does it remind you of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY? Or THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS? Patty Friedmann got there first! And she’s just as funny and observant.

Jason Sutherland is a billionaire investor who has it all: good looks, billions of dollars, and every expensive toy a man could ever want. What he doesn’t have is the one thing he wants the most: Hope Sinclair. Unfortunately Hope, the little sister of his best friend, was off limits. But when he finds out that she’s getting married, he decides that he’s staking his claim before it’s too late, and it will take more than a little deception and risk to accomplish his goal. Hope could end up hating his guts, but after spending one forbidden night with her that he can’t forget, he knows he has to try to make her his forever.

Hope Sinclair was born into money, but being rich has never made her happy. The one thing she wants is a man to care about her and not her bank account. The closest thing she’s ever found to real happiness was the magical, passionate night she’d spent in the arms of Jason Sutherland…until that night turned into heartbreak. So when he unexpectedly comes back into her life in the strangest of ways, Hope is determined to resist her attraction to him.

Thrown together by Jason’s deception and with their passion still burning hot, can the two of them survive after the billionaire is unmasked?

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The second book in the Beirut Trilogy, BRIDE OF A BYGONE WAR is set in the spring of 1981, following the American elections, when Lebanon hopes for fresh political winds that might end their seven-year civil war. Enter Walter Lukash, a midlevel CIA officer assigned as intelligence liaison to the Phalange militia. Lukash soon becomes a pawn in a Levantine game intended to draw the U.S. into conflict with Lebanon’s Syrian occupiers. Unfortunately, Lukash is too distracted by problems arising from having abandoned his Lebanese bride five years earlier to see the trap until it springs.

SYNOPSIS:
Beirut, 1981. Walter Lukash, a journeyman CIA case officer, has been posted in the Middle East for eight straight years and is ready for a quiet desk job back in Washington. When he is ordered to Beirut instead for a two-month secret liaison assignment with the Phalange militia’s intelligence unit, his superiors believe they understand his reluctance to accept.

What they don’t know is that, five years earlier, Lukash secretly married a Lebanese woman against Agency rules and abandoned her soon after the outbreak of war. More than that, his new Irish live-in girlfriend, whom the Agency considers a security risk, has followed him to Beirut from Amman and Lukash has defied orders to break off the relationship.

When the two-month assignment is extended to two years, Lukash realizes he can no longer avoid painful realities and choices. But before he can straighten things out, he is caught in a deadly three-way intrigue between the Phalange, the U.S. government and Lebanon’s ruthless Syrian occupiers that threatens to unleash the full force of Syrian-backed terrorism against Americans in Beirut.

BRIDE OF A BYGONE WAR captures the unique atmosphere of Civil War Beirut with a lively and intelligent style that draws the reader into deep identification with the characters and the action.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

“What are you thinking about, Jack?” Gloria looked at him, knowing his thoughts were miles away in time.

Jack chuckled. “I was thinking about the Christmas night I found that shooting star stuck in a snow bank.”

Gloria curiously raised an eyebrow. “Excuse me?”

In this heartwarming novella, Christmas meets the butterfly effect when a young boy’s glance at a shooting star produces surprising results through time.

When Jack Mason was eight years old in 1966, he saw a shooting star on Christmas night. Then he tried to follow it, setting off a chain reaction that affected his life, and others, in ways he would only learn about eighty-two years later when he meets Gloria Grant at the Harbor View Retirement Home. This is a tale of ordinary people, distant memories and forgotten dreams–though sometimes even forgotten dreams can still blossom.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The second American Revolution will be a fire lit from an internal spark.

The year is 2022.
America is on the verge of economic and social collapse. The U.S. government has made individual freedom its enemy. African American hacker Isse Corvus enters a black-ops training camp. Hyper-intelligent, bold, and ambitious, Corvus discovers the leaders are revolutionaries seeking to return the U.S. back to its Constitutional roots. Soon the camp fractures. Who is traitor? Who is patriot? With no place to hide, Corvus learns that if he doesn’t join “The Cause” and help them hack the NSA’s servers, it could mean his life. If he joins, he becomes part of a conspiracy to overthrow America’s financial elite and uncover NSA secrets.

What happens when the NSA and martial law meets revolution?

Turning patriotism into dangerous disruption (similar to the movements of Occupy Wall Street, Anonymous, and WikiLeaks), “The Cause” embroils Corvus in a deadly game with the NSA. A novel of juxtaposition, The Cause also tells the tale of the ruthless, manipulative, and opportunistic NSA Director, General Titus Montgomery. The President has told Montgomery that rule of law must be maintained at all costs.

George Orwell wrote about the fully evolved totalitarian state in 1984. Here is a futuristic “pre-Orwellian” novel where the shape of a totalitarian state is still forming.

Set inside a conspiracy to overthrow America’s financial oligarchy, a conspiracy that’s up against the dense web of the NSA’s new, more ruthless surveillance system, The Cause is a dystopian technothriller taking many topical issues to the next logical level. Although this is NSA fiction, many of the technologies and NSA codenames used throughout the novel are in existence today. In this way, the reader is placed on the fringe of our world by taking a step farther into the future to ask the question, “How far away are we?”

With crackling prose, the narrative in this technothriller brims with details about the NSA and takes us through the web of conspiracy from the perspective of a unique hacker character not yet seen in the genre.

Robotic warfare, drones, quantum computers, Anonymous, the NSA, along with a cast of conniving characters, this novel takes you on a manifest journey on how a new revolution could be born.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In the early 1930’s, a vicious criminal, alleged to be a prophet and the grandson of the great Seminole war chief, Osceola, escapes from a Florida prison along with two condemned black convicts, recruits a few reservation tribesmen sick of being “road stand Indians,” snatches a pair of young hostages and goes on an insanely tragic and doomed campaign to “take back this pointed land” or to kill as many whites as possible before defeat and death.

The novel is a story of flickering madness and humanity, of loyalties and vengeance, of savagery and instinctive compassion, among both the band of killers and the posse that relentlessly pursues it through the Everglades, an awesome and inspiring landscape of reptile infested swamps, vast clouds of insects, stifling humidity, debilitating heat and sudden violent storms that reflects the savagery and possibilities of goodness of the humans that have invaded it. Both savagery and the possibility of goodness, it becomes clear, exist in the pursued and the pursuers and in nature itself.

Category: Literary Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The FIRST of two books featuring troubled, fearlessly funny Eleanor Rushing, each a cockeyed (yet charming) work of literary humor by Kindle bestselling author Patty Friedmann.

A tour de force whose heroine falls somewhere between the Southern elegance of Walker Percy and the zany dark comedy of THE CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES. Here’s the set-up:

Surrounded by the splendor and excess of old money in New Orleans, Eleanor Rushing is a wry and witty young woman who first locks eyes with the love of her life at a City Council meeting. What starts as an innocuous infatuation with Dr. Maxim Walters, a Methodist minister who just so happens to be married, quickly turns into obsessive passion: she orchestrates an automobile accident outside his house, stuffs envelopes at his church, follows him on a business venture, sets up camp in the tools shed in his backyard…

Eleanor’s voice is both acutely perceptive and macabrely unhinged. She considers herself blessed with the ability to “remember everything,” except that her recollections and impressions seem to be at odds with everyone around her. By the time her “relationship” with Dr. Walters begins to spin frantically out of control, we’ve become her willing and faithful admirers. She’s so smart and funny—although a thoroughgoing fruitcake–that we can’t help but love her. Don’t we all have a friend like that?

Magnificently showcases Friedmann’s touted powers of psychological acuity and laugh-out-loud dark humor.

Who will like it: Fans of contemporary literary humor, especially in Southern fiction; humor and satire in general, and in particular THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, CATCH-22, RUNNING WITH SCISSORS; masters of dark, offbeat humorous fiction like Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Christopher Moore—and of course the New Orleans hometown favorite, John Kennedy Toole.

It is the year 1412 in the continent of Eurone. King Gravynmere has sent some of his best soldiers to investigate strange stories in the nearby border town of Faxon.
The men will soon learn there is more truth than fancy to these stories, for something walks in the fields, something with cloven hooves and fire dripping from its hands.

The king will rally his son, Prince Quinn, his entire army and all of the Kingdom of Vanosia to confront the very forces of darkness in an epic tale of adventure, magic and mystery as the veil between their world and Perdition grows thin.

Join the Prince as he battles for his land, his people and his beloved on a mission that will take him to ends of the world and back, through pain and sacrifice, war and horror as what is below claws its way to above.

Gears comes out fighting and refuses to accept that survival alone is their only option and, together with his brothers and the woman they save and name Ip, they set themselves the mission to destroy all hunters and restore order to the world. Along the way they make enemies of the living and the dead but they stay true to their course refusing to stand down from their mission regardless of the odds.

SOMEBODY TELL AUNT TILLIE SHE’S DEAD

A little magic can go a long way — to really screwing up a girl’s life!

Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that’s what her cards tell her and they’ve never been wrong. She’s evicted from her apartment, loses her job and is banned from Beverly Hills. So when the tarot cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right.

Suddenly, an aunt she’s never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She’s still one pissed-off old lady, even post-mortem, and she blames Mara’s magical meddling for her death.

When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie’s ready to kill her — literally. It’s the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself.

The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara’s body!

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A RIP-ROARING, PULSE-POUNDING FLORIDA PUZZLER…

As intricate as a fisherman’s net, Riptide fairly writhes with sinister delights—family secrets, family feuds, lost family fortunes, betrayals, puzzles, sunken treasure… and murder, of course. With a bit of illicit romance and treachery thrown in for seasoning. This rife atmosphere swirls around New york artist Isabel Anders, who’s summoned home to tiny St. Elmo, Florida to deal with an emergency: the aunt who raised her has been brutally—and mysteriously—injured.

Isabel arrives to find the family mansion in ruins, her aunt living in a trailer, and, dangerous as a cottonmouth, the lover she left at sixteen just where he used to be. Waiting for her. Except now he’s got a grudge against her, a secret of his own, and some unsavory companions. Just when Isabel’s aunt seems to be getting better (but before she’s able to talk again) she dies just as mysteriously as she was injured. Suspecting murder, Isabel quickly ties her aunt’s death to another.

But to find the killer, she has to hack her way through a small-town jungle of intrigue and several generations of interrelated secrets, producing hours of pulse-pounding delight for the confirmed puzzle fan.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Every dog deserves a forever home, and after being mistreated and given up several times, Wrigley has finally found his. The good-natured, smart mutt now spends his days as the house dog at SunRidge Assisted Living, comforting and doting on forty-five seniors. Happily, Wrigley has free run of the place, going where he senses he’s needed, but his preferred spot is beside his favorite resident Marjorie Thompson.

A big shift comes to SunRidge when a cranky curmudgeon named Walter Kepsen moves in across the hall from Marjorie. Having arrived reluctantly at the urging of his son, Walter can’t stand Wrigley or anything else for that matter.

But life has a way of making strange bedfellows, and after a series of dramatic, unforeseen events, Walter becomes indebted to Wrigley. His initial method of repayment—giving Wrigley lots of treats—perfectly suits the food-motivated house dog. But Wrigley is interested in more than just satisfying his unending appetite. He senses that Walter needs him and sees the old man as being similar to a neglected shelter dog, who if shown love will reciprocate it.

Before long, Wrigley softens Walter in a way only a dog can, and eventually helps bridge the gap between him and his son. Walter responds in kind by allowing Wrigley onto his furniture and ultimately into his heart.

Told in Wrigley’s voice, All That Ails You is an endearing story about the power of a dog’s love, when we need it most, and healing the strained relationship between a parent and a child before it’s too late.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In present day China, an old woman’s house sits opposite an ancient bridge. Not just any bridge–but a special one because it has always been known as ‘The Lucky Bridge.’ In olden days, it was said to bring a traveler good luck if walked over during a marriage ceremony, or at the beginning of the New Year. Because of its reputation, over the years it has also became a popular place for young mothers to abandon their children. What to some may seem cruel, is in reality a mother’s final gift to their offspring–one last chance to send their baby off to a new destiny with luck on their side. Jing, an old woman, is the unofficial… and often reluctant, guardian of the bridge. Because no one else will do it, Jing often steps in to prevent the children from frostbite, abuse and hunger. Then she delivers them safely to an orphanage. This has been her burdensome routine for many years, but what will the old woman do when the latest child–a blind boy–burrows too deeply into her heart…

Read ‘The Bridge’ to see how Fei Fei’s life is changed by the love of a lonely old woman. The Bridge is a short story of 17,000 words, approximately 72 pages. Fei Fei’s character is based on a real orphaned boy that Kay Bratt met during her time in China.
