Description:

"Paul is dead" was only the beginning.

It's 1970 and Beatle fans around the world comb the album covers and listen to Beatle songs forward and backward, trying to find “clues” that might lead to a logical solution or confirmation to the rumor that “Paul is dead.”

When two college radio DJ's join the search, they learn what the clues REALLY mean and begin an odyssey that takes them far beyond their studio. They discover a conspiracy to create a genuine Utopia, a true "Octopus' Garden." They are launched into a world-wide intrigue and quest that very quickly changes their lives forever.

After forty years, Jeff Scott finally reveals the solution to the mystery and confesses that the “clues” were not clues—no quotes necessary. The were guides that led to a life-changing experience and a life changing place: a genuine “Octopus’ Garden” beneath the waves.

Based on actual events and people, the story is an authentic excursion through the dreams of the Beatle Generation. But where does reality end and imagining begin?

The book recaptures the spirit and excitement of Beatlemania and--perhaps most important--the time when Beatle fans and Baby Boomers felt there was something special going on in their world.

M. Bennett Crosby
About the Author:

As a child, I didn’t care much about reading or writing.  I was a slow reader and one of those left-handed writers that teachers in the late 1950’s thought should be taught to write right-handed. My penmanship looked as confused as I felt and I shied away from anything literary for decades.

My fascination with people took hold when I was twelve years old, delivering newspapers to every corner of my small home town. It was often the people that society tended to shy away from, that I found great joy in spending time with.

As a teen in the late 1960’s, I was confronted with my inability to change my sexual orientation. I’d known from an early age that I wasn’t like the other boys. I felt my pleas to God were unanswered. It never dawned on me that maybe I was exactly who I was created to be.

Over the years, I crossed this nation and back again, living in large cities and tiny rural towns. I’ve held jobs from sweeping floors to corporate management. Several years ago, in recovery from chemical dependency, I began to use writing as a tool for self-discovery as well as self-expression. I slowly came to love writing stories, largely to see what the characters might do next. Many stories later, Franklin was born.

Description:

Franklin Harrison is seventeen years old and about to enter his senior year of high school. Tormented by the teachings of his church that condemn him, he is desperate to change who he is. Franklin struggles to conform to what he has been taught is God’s will for him. This change that he seeks never comes.

When he loses the small solace he found in his love of photography and abandons his camera, any glimmer of hope slips away. He can no longer face the God he believes in or himself.

With all hope gone, the miracle of grace that is extended to him opens the door to a journey that soothes his soul. It leads Franklin to discover, and then share, the love and beauty that is within and around him.

David Joseph
About the Author:

David Joseph is a veteran Air Force Flyer. While in the Air Force, he flew on the HH-53, HH-3, HC-130, C-141, and KC-10 aircraft, and traveled to every continent in the world. His travels and experiences provide unlimited material for writing.
He is the author of Korea x 2 and Silent Six, a military thriller Trilogy, set on the Korean peninsula, The Bully & Other Stories, and the two best seller novelettes, The Great Hijacking and Putin’s Shoot-down!  Both novelettes based on the Malaysian MH370/MH17 Flights. He is currently writing Korea Unified, the third book in the military Trilogy, and Inspirational/Thriller short stories. "I have twenty short stories and three novels in my head!"

Description:

In this groundbreaking historical short story, David Joseph brings to light one of the most shameful incidents in American history—“The Bellingham Riots” that, as the papers read, “wiped the Punjabi off the map.” The story reveals the plight of Sikh and Japanese in the U.S. who fought discrimination and established a proud legacy in the history of a country that is truly a “melting pot.” The story opens up with a fifteen-year-old boy and a young Japanese couple that flee Bellingham to escape the violence. “Punjabi” is a signature David Joseph story that begins with tragedy and ends with the reader in tears of joy. Using notes from a conversation with an elderly Punjabi man, David Joseph met in a café in West Virginia, and notes from interviewing elderly Japanese, David Joseph considers it an obligation to the Sikh and Japanese to write this story.

Muriel Marks
About the Author:

Muriel Marks is currently preparing her next book, while making chutneys, jams and continuing to enjoy her passions of animals, antiques and books. My Double Life is her first book.

Description:

In 1987, in her late forties and with two marriages behind her, Muriel Marks decides to take control of her destiny, putting herself through night school to qualify as a chef. Destiny takes the upper hand however when, on a weekend break in the West Country she meets debonair English actor Leo Lewis, recently returned from the glittering world of Hollywood. Falling instantly in love, they decide to open their own restaurant together, fulfilling a long-cherished dream for Muriel. To attract visiting entertainers, they call their new venture ‘Backstage’, and Freddie Starr, Les Dawson and Johnny Cash all become appreciative patrons. Leo however prefers centre stage, especially when the alcohol is flowing. Toss a few pretty waitresses into the mix and the recipe soon becomes explosive. The little town of Paignton doesn’t know what’s hit it and neither does Muriel. As Leo’s wildly drunken behaviour escalates into violence, the restaurant degenerates into a nightly farce for the customers and a living nightmare for Muriel. After much angst she is forced to sell the business, and Leo departs back to the States and his Hollywood career. Absence soon makes the heart grow fonder however. Realising she is still in love, Muriel flies out to America to be with Leo. She finds him not in Hollywood but New Jersey, and living a far from glamorous life. The pair survive for a while on poorly paid menial work, buy a second-hand car and head west, bound for the sunshine coast of California and the movie capital of the world, where Leo has ‘contacts’. But as they pass deeper into the heart of America, with Leo increasingly drunk and Muriel in constant fear of arrest as an “illegal”, she realises she has absolutely no idea what lies ahead of her. “My Double Life” is a unique true story of cookery and crookery, showbiz and booze, of love, enduring friendship, aspiration, despair, and starting all over again. Its cast of characters is vivid and varied, from movie stars to tragic has-beens, villains and freaks to the merely eccentric, along with kindly, lost souls, everyday heroes and heroines, all set against the deceptively sleepy backdrop of the British seaside and the vast, alien landscape that is America. It is also about a woman who followed her heart and survived to tell the extraordinary tale.

About the Author:

 

The author  been a long-time resident of Delhi, which as the capital of India was witness to the tumultuous action after the transfer of capital from Calcutta during the British colonial  rule. His  visits to the Coronation Park in Delhi that commemorates the coronation celebrations of Kind George V in 1911, and is now a heritage site, inspired him to write this story. See   http://www.ratankaul.in

Description:

 UNIQUENESS OF THE NOVEL           

There have been several novels by western authors on British Raj, all of which  received international acclaim with a large readership. The Far Pavilions, which is a comparatively recent one in the series of these novels having been published in 1978, sold millions of copies and inspired a popular television adaptation as well as a musical play.

 However, my novel, Wings of Freedom, has a vital distinction  as it’s written from an Indian’s point  of view, and reflects the aspirations of the Indian masses during the turbulent colonial period. Moreover, with the Indian authorship, it depicts appropriately the locales, language, dresses, social customs and flavor of the Indian society as it existed a hundred years ago,

PREMISE

It’s the year 1911. Raju, a college student, struggles to establish his identity in the charged atmosphere of India’s freedom struggle. King George the Fifth is due in Delhi for his coronation celebration. A devastating fire in the royal camp gives rise to speculations of sabotage and an assassination attempt by the revolutionaries. Raju is caught up in the vortex of violent passions as two of his innocent friends are made scapegoats for the blaze by the British police and murdered. Thus begins Raju’s relentless journey against colonial rule and the economic exploitation of India.

A passionate romance with Eileen, the daughter of a British officer, keeps Raju inspired in their roller-coaster ride against the backdrop of British imperialism, turbulent political conflicts, the fury of the freedom revolution, the catastrophic first World War and the racial, cultural and social divisions in the post-Edwardian era.

About the Author:

          People often ask what made me want to write a book at this stage in my life and career?  Well, I'm not sure really. I guess I had a story in my head that I needed to tell. That often leads them to ask if the book is somewhat autobiographical. The story itself is in no way connected to my life but the interplay between the characters in some cases includes elements of relationships I've had in my time. So I guess the answer is maybe a little bit?

          Some ask why paranormal? I can safely say I've been touched by practically every social disease that exists in one way or another - either personally or with family, friends - be it addiction, violence, disease, incest, mental illness, lack of faith, dysfunction, racism, sexism, or  . . . you name it. I guess these pieces since already explored in my real life, lost some of their horror and only seemed interesting enough to write about when rubbed up against the 'other worldly'.

           Who is Lyla? I get that one from time to time. Throughout the two years it took me to write the book, I believed Lyla to be more closely aligned to my daughter - saucy and sassy personality, appearance, multi-culturalism, etc. But later as I talked about the characters in detail, people closest to me pointed out that Lyla can only be 'me'. I guess I've accepted that to some degree at this point.

          What about Brian, and the sick relationship between he and Lyla? Well, I'll keep the answer to that between my therapist and I.

          And, Ollie? I sometimes think that character represents all I once thought I had to be in life:  self-less, dependable, extremely capable, and hopelessly bound by the past. 

          And well, of course, there's The Bishop. Everybody asks about The Bishop. I can only tell you - He Exists. :)

          Why do I think 'Standing in the Gap' is something special? Well, because I wrote it, of course. :)  But beyond that, it falls outside the commonly defined lines of street lit or urban fiction. While it certainly has its share of drugs, violence and sex, it is not really about street life per se- in fact, I believe its gift is the juxtaposition between those raw elements and that of the magnificent and mystical world of the Seioka (the meaning of which you'll only understand if you read my book).

          From the moment I sat down to key the first words of the book, I knew it would include lots of jaw dropping moments, tear jerker moments, and elements people with high sensibilities might find unacceptable or offensive. I wanted the reader to be completely surprised by the twists and shocked as the shameful secrets are at last revealed. I knew I had to deliver fast-paced action and the romance must be highly charged. I wanted the reader to truly feel it as the characters' lives spun out of control - there could be no 'down time' !

         While paranormal is the backdrop, the story is on the whole a hybrid of a crime thriller, erotica, and a tiny bit of existential philosophy.

         It would bring me absolute delight to have you read my novel!

Description:

What’s left when the truth destroys? Lyla Frazier, trying desperately to put the past and the shame behind her, seeks an answer to that question in Standing in the Gap. Ollie loved Lyla. He loved her in spite of the dark secret, in spite of her mental illness, in spite of the fact she would never love him the way he deserved because no matter how much she wanted to, Lyla couldn’t get a dead man out of her heart.

They believed the horror of the previous year was over, that the cost to end it had been paid with the lives of those they loved. But they were wrong. Soon they would each realize the evil taking place in Arcola was but one step in completing a new and even more sickening campaign to bring forth the Shakshi Mati. Could Lyla stop Noire, the flamboyant, sadistic Seioka at the helm of the new campaign? Would she find a way to let the past go finally, to move on, in love? Or would the darkness envelope her mind again, this time forever? Standing In The Gap is a love story, a story of survival, bravery, and self-discovery.

Description:

Simple Pushes presents a method for finding balance in life. This balance has been described as the interplay of yin and yang from the ancient Chinese, to the classical Greek inscription ‘Nothing in excess,’ to the modern day balances of feminine and masculine.

Beginning with an exercise of determining whether you push or pull on the steering wheel of your car, you can become aware of your unconscious habit of pushing or pulling in life. Pushing and pulling are not inherently good or bad, one not better than the other. Sometimes it is appropriate to push and sometimes it is better to pull.

People whose habit is pushing act without considering the circumstances or the impact of their actions upon others. People whose tendency is pulling think and feel too much instead of acting. These chronic habits lead to imbalance and create barriers to leading a fulfilled life.

This booklet contains an idea for gaining insight into why you do what you do and why others do what they do. It then gives examples of how to use simple pushes to achieve balance. This book is a short and simple read, yet may lead to profound changes in your life.

Patrick Brady
About the Author:

It's fair to say that bicycles have dominated Patrick Brady's life for the last 25 years or so. From riding them, to making his living as a bike mechanic while going to graduate school, to writing about them for a great many publications, Patrick has devoted his career to bikes and bike culture.

Patrick launched Red Kite Prayer in 2009 as an alternative to the other cycling media sites. No less an authority on all things active than Outside Magazine named RKP the best blog in cycling. He is the recipient of a Lowell Thomas Award for his travel writing. Before that he was founder and publisher of Asphalt Magazine, an editor for Bicycle Guide and The Ride, and the highly respected blog Belgium Knee Warmers. His work has also appeared in Peloton, Bicycling, Road Bike Action, Paved and more.

Description:

“Why We Ride” is a different sort of cycling book, one that takes the cycling jones and spit-shines it so that it reflects why so many of us stick with the bike even as other elements of our lives may change. It’s a book that asks why we’re willing to get up early, to ride in the cold, the rain, even the cold rain, and somehow count that as a good time.

Within the pages are a series of essays, meditations and prose poems on what makes cycling an indispensable part of our lives, and why it is that even the briefest ride has the power to make the gloomiest day better. 

Cycling isn’t just one pursuit. A love of cycling can serve as the foundation for half a dozen different hobbies. Sure, there’s the riding—let’s never forget the childlike joy that can come from a good ride. There’s the camaraderie that comes from the shared challenge of a ride. There’s also the fascination for the machine itself, a device that can be as artful as it is elegant in its simplicity. What of the myriad ways a ride can keep our heads straight? From the stress-relief of a hard ride to the contemplative quality of an easy solo ride, cycling feeds more than just cardiovascular fitness. If it was just exercise, most of us would have been gone years ago. 

Most of what’s been published about cycling in book form either tells you what someone else did—biographies and surveys of the great races, or what you could do—fix-it manuals and guide books. Like a book of poetry, “Why We Ride” is a volume you won’t read just once. It’s a volume you’ll return to again and again, the sort of book you might read just before bed, one that will put the bug in your ear; as you turn out your bedside lamp you’ll be thinking, “I’m riding tomorrow; no ifs, ands or buts.” 

How many books will do you that favor? 

The book draws from work composed over the last six years, a period in which I produced my very best work. Much of the work has appeared previously in different publications, but if we hit our stretch goals (see below), I’ll be including some previously unpublished pieces.  

I’ve wanted to bring these pieces together in book form to reflect the permanence of our love for the sport. Equipment may change, but the reasons we ride are no different today than they were when we were kids. Cycling deserves at least one volume that will stand the test of time.

I have always loved the written word, from when I was a young lad reading "Mr. Popper's Penguins" to a slightly older lad who read Raymond Chandler and John Cheever to the middle-aged dude I am now, reading history by the likes of Doris Kearns Goodwin. Christmas has also always been a big deal. For as long as I can remember, back in time to my youth in Chicago, this was always a special time of the year for my family and me. Another things is, everyone in my family, including and especially, my wife, has, to one degree or another, a slightly off way of looking at the world. Therefore, writing humorous stories about Santa seemed like a natural thing to do.

It shows all of these things in a light different from what you may be used to. This Santa enjoys adult beverages, as do some of his reindeer, and don't get me started on the elves. They work hard so they're entitled to the occasional tipple as well. Santa gets into all sorts of adventures: He travels through time with Blitzen and meets Abraham Lincoln; he tries to get out of the business but just gets sucked back in, just in time to defeat an evil efficiency expert and deliver the toys on Christmas Eve; he solves the "mystery" of a "missing" reindeer; he gets stressed but finds peace through meditation and the wisdom of a ghost-like reindeer. You may not be able to read these tales to your young children, but there's nothing here that would embarrass your grandma to read. They are simply Christmas stories told from a slightly skewed perspective.

Patty Terry
About the Author:

Patricia (Uziel) Terry was born in Kansas City, Kansas, Oct. 1941. Grew up on Strawberry Hill, went to Saint John the Baptist School and was in the adjacent orphanage just like my Uncle Willie Radkay. I was raised by my grandmother, Uncle Willie's mother. I never meant to be an author but listening to my Uncle's stories I knew they had to be in print for posterity. I can only imagine what he didn't tell me about the life he led.

Description:

Willie Radkay grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, spanning the two World Wars, Prohibition, the Great Depression and the Gangster era. A lawless soul, Willie survived numerous bank robberies, jail breaks, escapes and gun battles. Looking at old microfilm of newspaper articles in relation to a jewelry heist my Uncle told me about it, I read that he had been shot 12-times.  I took the printed article to my Uncle to ask him about being shot.  He said he didn't remember.  I said: "How can you get shot 12-times and not remember", he replied, "Tough skin, soft bullets and they didn't hit anything important". In the book a picture of Willie's torso shows the six slugs still in his body but imagine my surprise after viewing the entire X-ray after the book was published he also had a slug in each arm, which meant he carried 8-bullets in his body for over sixty-years. In later years when he drove to our home with a fractured hip from a fall my husband and I carried him from the driver's seat to the passenger seat.  My husband commented: "You sure are heavy for a little guy".  Uncle Willie said: "Yeah that's from all the lead in my ass".
 The Kansas City Star said that Willie was one of the most notorious armed robbers in Kansas City's history.http://www.willieradkayalcatraz.com

Roger K. Miller
About the Author:

Roger K. Miller, author also of the novels Invisible Hero and Dragon in Amber, was a newspaper writer and editor for more than thirty years. He is a freelance writer and critic whose work has appeared in numerous metropolitan newspapers and other publications. He and his wife Nancy, parents of three grown children, live in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.

 

Description:

Two narratives intertwine in The Chenango Kid. One is the personal story of the author, Roger Miller, who grew up on Chenango Street, a main artery of the medium-sized industrial city of Binghamton, New York, in the 1950s. The second is the larger story of the 1950s. Each narrative enlarges upon the other.

Many elements make up the personal: a devastating house fire; a single mother who liked to work and to frequent taverns; a father, mystified by life; less devoted to work than to benignly stalking his son; a half-sister long unknown; a drunken and/or crazy uncle or two; a boyhood paradise in the hills of Pennsylvania; and a passion for reading and art. All in all an unconventionally conventional working-class youth.

The Chenango Kid also connects Chenango Street to the wider world of the Fifties, a vibrant, explosive decade in art, literature, music, movies, and television—making it The Decade That Never Ends. The popular culture of no other ten-year span in the century continues to exert its influence as strongly or to be revived as often as that of the 1950s.
