Description:

In the spring of 1867, with the new underwater cable bringing word to America of a rising throughout Ireland, the New York-based Fenian Brotherhood decides to make good on a long-standing commitment to provide military aid to its counterpart in Ireland, the Irish Republican Brotherhood. Experienced Union Army officers -- Civil War veterans of the Federal Army's Irish Brigades -- become cargo, along with thousands of long-stockpiled weapons and millions of rounds of ammunition. All are loaded aboard a two-masted, square-rigged brigantine that sails in April from Sandy Hook, New York, to Ireland's western highlands. The rest, as they say, is history. 

"Erin's Hope" is a historical novel that blends real and composite characters into actual and fictionalized events associated with the little-known nautical expedition that took a one-ship Fenian "armada" on a 9,000-mile voyage that proved to be a military mission that both succeeded admirably and failed miserably.

Through its main characters, "Erin's Hope" traces the social, political, economic and deeply personal origins of 19th Century Irish-American involvement in what remains, well more than a century later, an ongoing struggle over British involvement in Irish affairs

John Ostergren
About the Author:

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.

Description:

"Twisted Tinsel" is a collection of four short stories, all about the goings on of Santa Claus, his reindeer, and the elves who work at the North Pole. 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.

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.

Christopher Meeks
About the Author:

Christopher Meeks was born in Minnesota, earned degrees from the University of Denver and USC, and has lived in Los Angeles since 1977. He's taught English at Santa Monica College, and creative writing at CalArts, UCLA Extension, Art Center College of Design, and USC. His fiction has appeared often in Rosebud magazine as well as other literary journals, and his books have won several Noble (not Nobel) Awards. His short works have been collected into two volumes, The Middle-Aged Man and the Sea and Months and Seasons, the latter which appeared on the long list for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award. He's had three plays produced, and Who Lives?: A Drama is published. His focus is now on longer fiction. His first novel is The Brightest Moon of the Century, and his second, Love At Absolute Zero.

Description:

Love At Absolute Zero is about a physicist who tries to apply the tools of science to finding a soul mate. Specifically, Gunnar Gunderson, a 32-year-old physicist at the University of Wisconsin, gets a promotion, and all he can think of now is finding a wife, causing his research to falter. To meet his soul mate within three days--that's what he wants and all time he can carve out--he and his team are using the scientific method, to riotous results.

"As if Einstein didn't struggle hard enough failing at a unified field theory," says Philip Persinger, author of Do The Math, "Meeks ups the ante by tossing philosophy, anthropology, hashish and love (with a capital L) into the mix. And while we're so sorry, Uncle Albert, in Love At Absolute Zero, Meeks succeeds absolutely."

"I've read both of Meeks's short story collections and The Brightest Moon of the Century," says author Kevin Gerard (Conor and the Crossworlds). "I roared through Love At Absolute Zero in a day and a half. Meeks's prose is carefully crafted, his characters compelling and entertaining. I love everything he writes, and I recommend Love At Absolute Zero without reservation."

About the Author:

I've had a lifetime of pleasure in writing short stories. I wrote The Geode Room so that I could bring some of my favorite characters to a setting that would allow me to more fully develop their personalities and understanding of life. I'm very interested in understanding people's feelings, and learning to know more about the interconnectedness they share with others in the development of their lives. Reader input has taken this process full circle for me, providing insights into both my storyline, and the private stories of readers, too.

Description:

The Geode Room has provided me with a setting to share the wisdom I've learned throughout my life. It's a fun and interesting story that encourages readers to become deeply involved with both the characters and setting. Many readers of the first edition of this book have contacted me to share their satisfaction with having known my characters in this lengthy multigenerational perspective on their lives.

About the Author:

The historical accuracy of the story will appeal to train buffs, history buffs, WWII buffs, and to anyone who enjoys a good road novel with interesting and real characters. The character's flaws make them interesting and appealing. Each scene makes the story move forward. There are no fluff scenes with overdescription which is a common fault with this type of story.

The author has had published two non-fiction works on transportation history and has written two screenplays, one of which was produced and shown at three film festivals, winning one award.

Description:

THE NAVAJO, an action/romance/spy/buddy story wrapped up into a road trip. The setting is 1940 as Air Corps Sgt. Jake Vasquez and Marine Cpl. Rusty Henson are thrown together on a cross-country train trip in less than perfect surroundings. Jake and Rusty initially irritate each other, but soon learn to work togther for common purposes. They encounter Molly, a youngish Indiana country girl running from something, and Gabrielle, a fashionable New York model on her way to break into Hollywood. But something is wrong; someone wants something they may have. Follow their story in the best Agatha Christie Orient Express style. Extensively researched for historical accuracy, it’s a great tale for train buffs, military WWII buffs and fans of boy-girl romantic interaction. Although our heroes are straight arrows, there is a somewhat intense accidental homoerotic scene. Come along for the ride. (BTW, The Navajo is the name of the train.)

Mark Flannery
About the Author:

I have been in the music industry for the past 30 years. I was lucky to have started in the old system where if you wanted to be a music producer you did an apprenticeship in a recording studio shadowing producers and learnt as you went along. If you were lucky you got to observe some of the greats of music and production create materpieces that stood the test of time. I was extremely lucky!

My career has taken me from Ireland, the UK, around Europe, USA and to Australia. I have met and collaborated with some of the greats in music production and artists. Some of the ones I am most proud of are U2, Def Leppard (Hysteria album, Depeche Mode (Violator Album), Black Sabbath, Yes and many more. Since 2002 I have been a tutor at BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) and have developed a real passion for music education, especially as the opportunities that I had are not their any more.

I think it is really important to share knowledge and the digital age makes that possible so much easier than before. This first installment is based on a series of questions that I regularly get asked by students.

Description:

This book is short, deliberately. In this digital age I think people want authors (of non-fiction anyway) to get to the point and tell them what they need to know quickly. It may be short but I believe it is rich in concepts that used correctly can accelerate someone's progress to becoming a great music producer.

It was written because I have searched but never found a guide to Music Production that gives the reader an insight to what is actually important. Most Music Production courses, magazines and books focus on the use of equipment like software packages and microphone placement. These are extremely useful but they are a guide on how to use the TOOLS not what music production is really about. It's a bit like telling an artist about the different brushes they can use for different situations and them expecting them to be the next Monet or Picasso!

When I first started as a runner in a studio almost 30 years ago, I was sat down by the Chief Engineer and told that the most vital thing to understand and remember is that music production is 95% psychology and 5% technology. In my view too much of the material out there focuses on the 5% technology so I want to redress the balance in a small way.

I intend this small book to be the first in a series so my hope is that readers will give constructive feedback with requests for other areas that they would like covered in the future. Until then good luck!

Gene Twaronite
About the Author:

Gene Twaronite's stories have been published by Avatar Review, Fast Forward Press, Highlights for Children, Kids'Magination, Mouse Tales Press, Read (Weekly Reader), and The Write Room as well as in a book anthology by Heinemann (In Short: How to Teach the Young Adult Story, Edited by Suzanne I. Barchers, 2005).  He is also the author of the middle grade novel The Family That Wasn't - the prequel to My Vacation in Hell.

"Before writing his novel," says the author, "I spent time researching Dante’s work as well as to other depictions of hell as described by various religions.  I also read some of the literature dealing with sexual abuse and treatment. In my novel, I have tried to incorporate the three main symptoms or stages that a sexual abuse victim displays: disassociation, denial and repression of memories.  Because it is sometimes necessary for a victim to confront the abuser, I decided to have John face his Uncle Vinnie in hell.  And I especially wanted to have John’s gradual healing follow the general goals of sexual abuse treatment – of “finding the inner child” or the inner spirit that was damaged, of finding a place where one is whole and safe again."

"Having exposed my character John to sexual abuse in my earlier novel, I felt that I couldn't just leave him hanging there without trying to help him resolve his issues. I tried to imagine as best I could part of the horror experienced by a sexual abuse victim and how he might deal with it. It is my hope that in some small way my novel helps to address the needs of all who seek to find their own way out of hell."

Description:

My Vacation in Hell is a humorous young adult fantasy, written in first person narrative by a 15-year-old writer named John Boggle. The time period is the mid-1960’s. A troubled nerdy misfit and a frequent flyer of his imagination, John is inspired by a book report reading of Dante Alighieri’s the Inferno. In the eternity of the five minutes before summer vacation, he embarks on a pilgrimage based upon his own free-wheeling interpretation of the work.

Following Dante's lead, John populates his hell with all the people who have wronged him over the years, inventing deliciously cruel punishments for each of them in his teenage version of cosmic retribution. Aided by his best friend Virgil, a trusty guide in this shared imagination, John also struggles to come to terms with the world’s many evils. And as he descends further into this realm, he constructs his own hierarchy of evildoers, assigning them to the levels he believes they deserve.

But it is the evil perpetrated upon John, a victim of sexual abuse, which poses the most difficult challenge for him. The deeper he goes, the more he encounters obstacles, some of whom in the guise of colorful demon characters try their best to keep him there. But the worst obstacle of all is his own self-image, forged out of guilt and shame. He will not leave this hell of his own making, Virgil tells him, until he learns how to deal with the evil done to him and finds the true center of his being.

Fortunately, he has other help besides the ever wise Virgil, who it turns out has a few problems of his own to deal with. John needs more than reason to get him through this, and divinely beautiful aid arrives in the form of Beth, an idealized version of his secret love.  Rescuing the pair from the evil that threatens to consume them, she will guide John in the last stage of his spiritual odyssey. She shows him that there are even some good places in Hell, just as there is always some good, however slight, that comes from our worst experiences. Though of necessity a darkly disturbing tale, My Vacation in Hell delivers an essential message as affirmative as the dawn.

S.J. Munson
About the Author:

S.J. Munson has been a pastor, writer and teacher for the past two decades.  He received a B.A. in English from Princeton, along with a prize for fiction. The author of numerous Christian dramas, his call to fulltime ministry came while he was working as a screenwriter in Hollywood. He went on to receive an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, with a concentration in New Testament Greek.

“I love history and this story gave me an opportunity to weave history, faith and mystery into one story,” Munson said. “Anyone who is interested in fiction, art or ancient history will love this book.”

"There’s a lot of fiction or non-fiction out there that deals in some way with the temple treasure, the rebuilding of the temple, end-time prophecy and the State of Israel. I wanted to write a detective novel that challenges the reader both intellectually and emotionally to reexamine some dearly held assumptions in the light of history.

"The Romans looted the Jerusalem temple in AD 70, and I always wondered what became of those treasures. The Romans were such careful historians, whatever happened, there had to be a paper trail. As it turns out, the story is quite an epic. For five hundred years, the treasures survived fire, barbarian invasions and war, traveling from Jerusalem, to Rome, Carthage, Constantinople, and back to Jerusalem.  Then, oddly, in the mid-sixth century, the trail goes cold.  What happened after that is, of course, a source of much speculation, and that’s where fiction and imagination take over.  The protagonist in my book gets caught up in the search but ends up finding something infinitely more valuable."

Description:

What ever happened to the treasures of the Jerusalem temple looted by the Romans in AD 70? Their fate is shrouded in mystery ...

Former art historian Michael Grammaticus, Jr. has inherited an ancient and dangerous secret-and it seems he is the last to know! When his parents are killed under suspicious circumstances, he travels to Rome to investigate, and the clues lead him to a fascinating world of ancient art, medieval manuscripts, and a dangerous mix of religion and international politics. Descended from an endless line of Greek scholars, he can't resist being drawn into their cryptic world, and soon the same relentless forces that destroyed his father begin to hound Michael as well. He discovers not only that his father had been an outspoken advocate for Palestinian Christians, but also that one of his ancestors was the bearer of a secret that continues to haunt his family-- a riddle regarding the whereabouts of the coveted treasure of King Herod's temple. This journey of discovery also becomes one of faith, as the cynical and disillusioned Michael undergoes a harrowing tribulation that leads him not only to the reasons for his father's death, but also to something far greater than the temple treasure itself. A delightful romp for lovers of fiction, art and ancient history-- and for anyone who ever wondered what really happened to that treasure!

 
Here's what people are saying about The Treasure of Israel...
 
"An incredible story that will keep you on the edge of your seat!" --Greg Holmes, Revival Nation Publishing
 
"...One part historical mystery, one part modern thriller, and altogether a great read...Christian fiction at its best."    --Long Island Council of Churches, "Prelude," September 2009

"For a huge puzzle, I found not a puzzle-piece out of place. As the treasure-search genre of books expands, this quality is important. It also is an obvious treasure piece never before dealt with. This one hangs together. Needless to say, I recommend it without reservation."   --Rev. Hank Keating, President, Keating Christian Ministries, Inc.

"Not since the early works of Morris West has a novel more accurately described the interplay of tensions between the religious world and Western society."  --Christian Newswire

"What the avid reader of historical novels always needs is a well-researched, well-written novel that gives us a sense of having walked with the author into an enchanted land of his making. This, happily, is what S. J. Munson's novel does. It is not an ordinary historical novel, but one of depth and learning and style."             --Ralph Stewart Smith, author

 

From Amazon.com customer reviews...
 
"Fast-paced, gripping and thoroughly enjoyable. Total escape to a world parallel to The DaVinci Code, deftly layered with humor, insight, history and adrenaline. Highly recommended."
 
"Powerful & Intelligent Literature - Couldn't put it down!"
 
"Had me on the edge of my seat, and the surprise ending was not only exciting but the perfect conclusion to a book that satisfied my every expectation from a good novel."
 
"The historical accuracy is astounding, the writing is superb, the idea is creative and original. He claims his space and has his own unique style and nails it. He uses flashbacks and an expressive narrative that builds the kind of tension that's needed to forge a "sit on the edge of your seat" suspense thriller!"
 
"One of those books that you sacrifice sleep for, just to get through 'one more chapter.'"
 
"The dialogue is smart and sassy and hilarious."

I love all kinds of books, and enjoy writing in many genres. So far, I've published two books, one about modern vampires, and one a medieval fantasy. I love a good sword-swinging adventure, and, if it's funny, so much the better. A deep love of Terry Pratchett style comedy inspired Misadventures in the Art of Chivalry, at least to some extent. A sequel will probably be forthcoming, but my whims may take me somewhere else first.

Description:

Princess Calanthe's extraordinarily boring life has just taken a very interesting turn. Two out-of-work knights have kidnapped her as part of a brilliant money-making scheme. Only thing is, her kingdom is flat broke.

Her worried parents reluctantly enlist the help of her brother Kendrick to rescue her. But Calanthe doesn't want to go home. Their plans ruined, the little band needs a new source of income. Plan number one: rob a dragon.

As if they didn't have enough problems, Calanthe is being pursued by a Prince that she refused to marry. In the midst of it all, Calanthe must decide what matters most, and the lengths she will go to defend it.
