About the Author:

A.G. Henley is the author of the BRILLIANT DARKNESS series. The first book in the series, THE SCOURGE, was a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award. A.G. is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they've had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds. When she's not writing fiction or shrinking heads, she can be found herding her children and their scruffy dog, Guapo, to various activities while trying to remember whatever she's inevitably forgotten to tell her husband. She lives in Denver, Colorado. Learn more at aghenley.com

Description:

Read The Defiance (Brilliant Darkness, #2), the highly anticipated sequel to THE SCOURGE (Brilliant Darkness, #1), a 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award Finalist! THE FIRE SISTERS (Brilliant Darkness #3 coming fall 2015!)

It hasn’t been long since Fennel, a Sightless Groundling, and Peree, her Lofty Keeper, fell in love and learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems. 

Fenn and Peree are determined to guide their people to the protected village of Koolkuna, but first they must convince them that everything they believe is a lie. An impossible task, especially when someone seems hell-bent to try anything—even animal sacrifice and arson—to destroy the couple’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties. Not everyone wants to uproot their lives in the forest, and those who stay behind will be left terribly vulnerable. 

Fenn and Peree’s resolve to be together despite their people’s disapproval, and the constant threat of the Scourge’s return, pushes both groups to the breaking point. Unable to tell friend from foe, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future. 
Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear. 

Praise for THE DEFIANCE (Brilliant Darkness #2): 
“I absolutely LOVED The Defiance! No, I more than loved it! It was breathtaking, intense, romantic, suspenseful . . . the list could go on and on!” 
-- ARC review 

Praise for THE SCOURGE (Brilliant Darkness #1): 
“Lovable and relatable heroine? Check. Swoon-worthy, kick-butt hero? Check. Compelling romance that makes your heart melt and toes curl? Check. Captivating story and fascinating world? Check. Eagerly anticipating the next book? Check, check, check.”

Aubrey Glen Mobley
About the Author:

 

Auubrey Glen Mobley was born in the northeast corner of the state of Arkansas. When he was 5 years old he moved to the state of Arizona.

There he met an indian boy named Petie Martinez. Although Glen was only in the first grade, he was fascinated by his Indian friend. On day, Glen went, with his mother and father, to the Indian reservation to meet the real American Indian. They even went to the mountains, where they explored the village of the cliff dwellers; an awesome sight.

He returned to Arkansas five years later where he attended Lafe High School. After graduation, he went to Flint, Michigan, where he got a job at the Fisher Body Plant, later named the Chevrolet Truck and Bus plant. He retired in 1995, and returned to northeast Arkansas, where he purchased the Spirit Lake property.

The original lake, built by beavers, was destroyed in the 1800's when loggers cleared the land of all the trees.

In 1980, the Spirit Lake Development Corporation rebuilt the lake, renaming it Spirit Lake. Reaganomics halted any further development of the property.

In 1995, Glen learned he had Indian blood. His great grandmother was full blooded Quapaw Indian. With that knowledge and a story to tell, he began to research his heritage. With the help of Bill Jones, the story has now been told.

This story is about the Quapaw Indians who lived here.  

Description:

 

“Quapaw,” Indian word meaning, “Down stream people.”

            In 1541, Hernando De Soto slaughtered all the people of a tiny village of Quapaw Indians except for a 15 year old boy named Kyota.  Kyota fought back killing many Spanish soldiers, and finally put the fatal shot into De Soto.  The village was rebuilt, and Kyota vowed to never allow his village be destroyed again.  But he died in 1593, leaving his son Cotekya in charge of their safety.

            The village is near Spirit Lake, as the Indians called it, and is nestled in the foothills of the Osark Mountain range in Northeast Arkansas, near the present day town of Pocahontas.  The year is 1610 and the Spaniards have returned.  They were in search of the fabled city of gold that De Soto had sought long and unsuccessfully for.  But this time it would be different.

            The Chief, Cotekya, had a grandson also named Cotekya.  This is his story.

Nick Stephenson
About the Author:

Nick Stephenson was born and raised in Cambridgeshire, England and will now refer to himself in the first person. My approach to writing is to hit hard, hit fast, and leave as few spelling errors as possible. I write thrillers, suspense novels, and the occasional witty postcard, all of which are designed to get your pulse pounding. Don't let my headshot fool you - I'm actually full colour, on most days.

My books are a mixture of mystery, action, and humour. If you're looking for a good place to start, take a look at my Leopold Blake series of thrillers, available now.

Description:

 

Swift. Silent. Deadly.

Leopold Blake, expert criminology consultant for the FBI, had his weekend all planned out - and it didn't involve dealing with a murdered senator, a high-profile kidnapping, and at least three near-death experiences. Three politicians have been murdered in as many weeks, all expertly dispatched, and only Leopold can get to the bottom of it. Unfortunately, as all hell breaks loose on the streets of New York City, he soon finds himself the next target of a powerful enemy who wants him silenced. Permanently.

Against the backdrop of political corruption and murder, Leopold and his team must fight for their lives to uncover the truth before it's too late. Panic is the first novel in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers.
 
 

Editorial Reviews

Review

 
 
 
"Panic had me on the edge of my seat the whole time with its fast pace and nonstop action. A real page-turner, it leaps from crisis to crisis and never slows down, twisting all the way to its gripping conclusion." - David VanDyke, author of The Eden Plague. 

 
"Buckle up... With precise blows, Nick Stephenson creates fight scenes that had me clenching my jaw with tension. The twists and turns kept me guessing - the pace of the story cracked along toward an exciting finish." - Craig McGray, author of The Somnibus, Madeline, and This Little Piggy.
 

From the Author

This book hits hard, hits fast, and keeps your pulse pounding until the very end. A thrilling mix of action, humor, and mystery, the Leopold Blake series is Sherlock meets Die Hard - an explosive mix that fans of Lee Child, Dan Brown, and James Patterson will love.

Raymond Welch
About the Author:

“Ray intertwines key dynamics of the global environment and American society to explore how individuals and families will be forced to respond to intersecting global crises. This is a heck of a story with a large cast of compelling characters.”

—  Charles Hugh Smith, author/blogger, Of Two Minds

“Earth’s climate is unstable, and we are pushing it hard towards a sudden shift to a new state by pumping huge quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A radical shift in the climate between the years 2018-2028 as envisioned by Welch is entirely plausible.”

—  Dr. Jeff Masters, Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

“We are already seeing (as predicted) outsized warming of the Arctic compared to other parts of the globe. There is growing evidence that we are already seeing weather patterns being influenced by loss of Arctic sea ice.” 

—  Dr. Mark Serreze, Director, National Snow and Ice Data Center, U. of Colorado at Boulder

“Ray has worked in the energy business for years and knows it inside out.” 

—  Chris Rafael, Editor, California Energy Markets

A Change in the Weather is a well-written and disturbing page-turner.  Ray has composed an edgy mix of fact and fiction that kept each of us up late each night until we were done. We looked forward to every chapter as he was writing them.”

—  Arjan Khalsa, CEO, Conceptua Math
—  Dalbir Khalsa, Physician Assistant, Community Medicine

Description:

A Change in the Weather follows the Russell family during the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of the polar ice cap, from March 2028 through May 2029. The Arctic has inverted from heat reflector to heat sink, and the jet stream has broken from its age-old trajectory to whip the globe like an unattended fire hose. Rainfall patterns shift the world over. Agriculture fails. The international economy collapses. Terrorism surges.

In the ensuing panic, the United States embraces President Roland Strauch, a Biblical literalist who heads the American Homeland Party and its armed militia, the Order of the Eagle and Cross.

Each member of the Russell family does what he or she thinks is right in an America where democracy and Christianity struggle to survive.  What each thinks is right couldn't be more in conflict.

Roger Olivares
About the Author:

The book is not just a spy thriller nor just an ordinary love story.  The book shows the aspirations and fears of the young Greeks as they come out of the oppression of the Turkish domination, the German occupation, and now the NATO occupation.  It shows the aspirations of a people steeped in culture but downtrodden by the conquering empires of the past two thouand years. 

I lived in Crete for two years, enough time to know and observe their culture .. and feel their pride in their contributions to the world. The current struggle of Greece to stay a respected and economically viable  member of the EU is reflected in this story's characters to gain respect in the world community. 

Description:

"CIA Love Story in Crete" is interesting because it shows the plight of military/CIA families.. in the setting of one of the most beautiful and mysterious lands in the world, Crete. The book has 87 color photos of Crete embedded in the text... and so the reader sees the scenery of action as he reads the book. He gets an intimate knowledge and feel of the culture. The reader would love to visit Crete after reading the book.

It is both a spy thriller during the Kosovo War.  Michael, a veteran CIA agent, is sent to Crete to stop terrorists who want to thwart the  operations of NATO against the  ethic cleansing in Serbia. Emotions are high because the Greeks are against NATO for the Serbs are cousins because of religion and historical affinity.

It is a love story because, Joann, Michael's wife who is of Crete ancestry, comes along out sheer boredom for being left alone too ofetn, and also to trace her ancestry. They meet up with a young fiery nationalist and a beautiful Crertan woman who was also against NATO but abhorred terrorist acts.

Their paths collidied into a sacrilegeous holocaust in the pristine settings of Crete..

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.

His love of music expresses itself in many forms, metal, rock, flamenco and Cretan traditional music, he plays guitar and the Cretan mandóla. His studies and work as an eco-tour guide support his appreciation of the importance of authentic, local tourism and that is why he is passionate about sharing the real Crete in the Trip Ideas books and on his website ‘We Love Crete’, with his brother, Apostolis.

Katia Luz - a traveller since a young age, her love of Crete, as well as a passion to share the unique culture, from such a warm-hearted people and the rugged, rough and fiercely independent character of the land itself, drew her to write the ‘We Love Crete’ website and the Trip Ideas books with her co-authors, Apostolis and Anastasios.

Description:

Crete Greece - Trip ideas - Five Days in the West of Crete by Car or Motorcycle

Independent Travel - taking some time and a car will mean you can explore the ruggedly beautiful interior of the island of Crete as well as visit some exquisite beaches.

Visit Crete - take a back roads journey through the island. This book helps you discover the real Crete - archaeological sites, wine tastings, organic tavernas, hidden valleys and other gems in the west of Crete. Get behind the scenes.

Anastasi, Apostoli and Katia of We Love Crete have put together their favourite places in the west of the island to give you a varied and interesting itinerary to follow. Or adapt for yourself.

Inside

  • Learn the secrets of the Minoans at the Knossos Palace
  • Drive through the country, visit wineries, take wine tastings, and visit the local tavernas
  • Get off the beaten track in the foothills of Psiloritis and experience the hidden Amari Valley
  • Have easy access to the route with our live-link map and clickable website addresses
  • Discover the history of Crete and a story of rebellion at the Arkadi Monastery
  • Packed with tips for accommodation that will save you Euros and add enjoyment to your travels

Everyone knows Crete as a beach destination, and that an average of 300 days of sunshine a year mean more chances of bliss on the sand. But as an independent visitor, who wants to do more than just lie on the beach, it can be difficult to plan a great route without knowledge of the island.

First, there's the language barrier, which can make it difficult to ask directions on back roads, how do you know what sights and villages you should be looking for? And, what is the difference between a Minoan, a Cretan and a Chaniot?

With the Five Days in the West of Crete, you won't miss the any of the historic sites, interesting towns and beautiful beaches. This route will show you the wine and food in Crete, for everyday eating and everyday pleasure. The stunning mountains and valleys of Crete will be at your fingertips.

Trip Ideas - A Route Behind the Scenes

  • Experience mountain hospitality and organic local food at Taverna Vegera in Zaros
  • Enjoy the fruit trees, vineyards and green slopes of the Amari Valley

  • Have the suggested itinerary for the west of Crete and maps with you in one handy package

What This Book Is Not

This book is not a fully detailed Crete travel guide - this does not have detailed instructions “Turn left, turn right, take the second road after the goat shed”. This is a route suggestion for independent, curious travellers who know how to read a map. There are plenty of excellent travel guide books available. We wrote this book in response to our readers, who often asked; “How do I plan my trip for five days in Crete”? This suggested pathway, with different options, will help you travel Crete on the back roads.

The author joined the Women's Movement in 1968 after personal study in Mythology, Anthropology and Archaeology with a final commitment to Anthro-Apology.  She is a cartoonist as well as a researcher and writer.  Her works include other e-books: Wartime In America 1941-1945 -- An Homefront Idyl; The Single Girls' Guide to Greek Gods; The Onus on Men and How It Grew -- The Bonus to Women; Gender Therapy, an Illustrated Anthology.

Description:

In the words of the courageous archaeologist missionary who sacrificed her own well-being to save all Atlanteans from further descent on the evolutionary scale: We are fotunate to have come to Atlantis at a time long after we might have encountered the Rockmen of Megaton Island in their rise as Rockefellas or in their rapid decline as Goodfellas.  Worse we might have encountered the 'World's Most Powerfus Man' in the form of a John-son or a Jack-son, or have been 'smitten' by silver screen goddesses.  Rather, we rapidly gained ascendancy over the inhabitants in their present total degardation.  Wherever we encounter the species, we must not assign our qualities of caring and compassion to such combative, overly talkative animals or we run the risk of permitting their modern mutants, however small in size and number they may be, too much liberty to run about untethered.  (I do protest that the caging of any animal should only be done in extreme circumstances regardless of the custom among You-Mens to keep so many of their own kind in cages.)

And so, this long over-due illustrated study for a comprehensive Anthro-Apology is offered to the perceptive reader based on the translated journals of Sorrel Starling, a deserted, denigrated missionary to the Burning West.  Through Rev. Starling's hands-on analysis of finds out of the cavernous ruins of Megaton Island, sifted and sorted from the mud of an infested swamp where tons of wash were white-washed, exhumed from haunted religious sites in Holy-Wood, the frightening, shocking, wierd evidence mounts to conclusively reveal how ancient Skyscraperans of the First and Second Millennia lived and died.

Jon Petruschke
About the Author:

Jon Petruschke was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He holds a BA in psychology from the Pennsylvania State University and an MSS from Bryn Mawr College's Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. Upon the completion of his graduate studies, Petruschke relocated to Portland, Maine, with his wife and two cats. Since 2002, the four of them have lived happily in the cozy, vibrant neighborhood of Munjoy Hill. Shortly after the move, Petruschke founded a Portland-based writing group that is now in its twelfth year.

His short fiction has been published in the anthologies Philly Fiction and Philly Fiction 2. In her Philadelphia Inquirer review, Susan Balee called Petruschke's story "Bragging About Annie," which appeared in Philly Fiction, a "sweet and funny tale...a wonderful story--my favorite of the lot." Petruschke's poetry has been published in such journals as Poetic Hours; Paper Wasp; Children, Churches and Daddies; 3 Cup Morning; Open Minds Quarterly; Waterways: Poetry in the Mainstream; and the anthology In Our Own Words: Generation X Poetry.

While at work on his first novel, Petruschke began a blog, Basho and Jung. The blog's subject is dream haiku: short poetry inspired by and based on the content of his nightly dreams. Initially, it was a practice to cleanse his writing mind of the long stretches of prose in his novel; however, playing with his dreams inside of a tiny poetic form lead to the development of Petruschke's first book: a collection of poetry entitled Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps. Dream Haiku was recently self-published and is available on Amazon.

When not writing, Petruschke is a clinical social worker who supervises a team that assists and supports adults with severe mental illness in the Portland community.

Description:

Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps is a selection of the author’s honest, odd, and irreverent verse. Culled from the journeys that sleep gifts us, these poems are a range of otherworldly moments. Some impossibly surreal. Others comfortingly familiar. And many of them somewhere, somehow, true -- in our whimsies, our ideals, our desires. The haiku form, and its moments of contemplation and surprise, are a perfect fit for the dream world’s startling images, pieces of conversation, and emotional residues. These are the experiences we so often forget and dismiss. Yet every night, we return to them.

About the Author:

Though I was born and raised on the island of Britain, and though my parents and all my ancestors as far back as I am aware, were born and raised on the island that invented the English language, English is my second language. It gives me the perspective of being both on the inside and on the outside of the world's most spoken language. In my native tongue,

These days I live in California, a Welshman married to an Apache, It's strange how the world turns and how, on this road of life we never know what lies around the next curve. Perhaps if we come to grips with the way we speak we may understand life a little better.

Or perhaps not.

Description:

The English language has an unusual style of expression. To insult or offend someone, sexual words are used. More than that, words with the same meaning are perfectly acceptable. Why is it acceptable to say "Posterior" but not "Ass"? This book explores the reasons and the history of English swearing and related obscenities.

Other chapters deal with such slips of the tongue as Spoonerisms; where you "Dish the washes" and Malapropisms; "He is a Civil Serpent"

With all the ways we have of misunderstanding each other, reading this short book may make you wonder how we manage to communicate. Perhaps we don't.

Captivated by the eerie and a lover of things that go bump-in-the-night, I thoroughly enjoy embracing the fear that resides within. A scary story or movie is always at the top of my list.

Mace of the Apocalypse is my first complete novel which delves into the darkness within all of us. It is meant to shock and repulse at times, but also question who we really are or could become in an atmosphere of pure insanity. There is also a spiritual side to the story, because inside each of us is a struggle to come to terms with the true meaning of our existence.

Description:

A terrorist attack on a BART train has left San Francisco in the grip of a powerful toxin. Spreading like wildfire, its victims convulse violently until death overtakes them. With death, however, comes a new type of existence; more horrible and deadly than anyone could have imagined.

A small band of survivors led by Mason “Mace” Marconi, struggle to stay one step ahead of the raging infected as the virus spreads, battling not only the undead but a psychotic gang of drug-addicted teenagers intent on ruling the new forbidden landscape.

Father Jack McCann, one of their traveling companions, has gained possession of the only antidote for the toxin. Seeing it as a sign of God's grace, he has yet to discover the terrible side effects it contains.

The enemy is everywhere. The enemy is within. The zombie apocalypse has arrived.

About the Author:

I began writing before I could write, telling stories to my young brother. When I learned to print, I toiled with the task of putting my stories onto paper.

Words take many forms. My background is in television production where every second counts, where scripts are analyzed for the power of word choices, clarity, motion, color, speed, and emotion.

I never fail to be amazed at how the printed word, no matter what the media, can change lives, bring pleasure, tears, or laughter to so many, and be so rewarding to those of us who are committed to the craft of writing.

The inspiration for WINTER'S DESTINY occurred while my husband and I were visiting Oregon's untamed coast in our motorhome. An early fall storm struck with such ferocity, that our parked RV rocked crazily on its axles, storm waves surpassed previous highs, the wind howled menacingly, and we were pelted with blowing sand and rain. We know the ocean and the coast, but the sudden, incredible ferocity of this storm was humbling. By morning the rising sun shone brilliantly over the vast Pacific Ocean, defying our memories of the night. This intriguing, pristine coast offers such raw, breathtaking beauty and extreme weather conditions that I felt it needed to be shared.

WINTER’S DESTINY

She's an architect, a wife, and a mother, but the quiet life ends abruptly for Amy Johnson. Alone, with a fall gale howling around the rafters, she turns to see a woman’s rain-streaked face staring at her through the dark window.  

The face is identical to her own! 

Instantly, Amy’s life crumbles. Her husband leaves, her only child disappears, and something sinister surrounds her and those she loves. Amy is catapulted into a world she knows nothing about--a place where a killer rules, where answers stay buried, where time ticks dangerously by, where her life is in constant peril, and worse, where her son, Jamie is hidden.  

To find her child, she must find her look-alike, and that dislodges a killer who hunts her relentlessly. Sheriff Dallas Wayburne’s investigation parallels Amy’s, and their combined efforts draw them together when time is critical and when their relationship adds yet another dimension to Amy’s stressful life.  

They finally track down the powerful, destructive man behind the scenes, learn the identity of Amy’s look-alike, and unravel a puzzle decades in the making. As time runs out, Amy struggles to save her son while fighting both a dangerous man and the perils of the treacherous Oregon coast.  

WINTER’S DESTINY is an edge-of-the-seat thriller set on Oregon’s rugged Pacific Coast.  Here, the story reaches its unique and spectacular conclusion.

About the Author:
The author: Shelia Zulfiqar has an active lifestyle. She travels often. She knows first hand how a demanding schedule can be stressful on your hair. In this book she talks about her battle with dry, brittle hair. She shows how her hair became moisturized, strong and began retaining length. She discovered that everyones hair grows, the trick is to learn how to retain and maintain growth.This is a step by step guide towards growing a healthy head of hair.
Description:
Ethnic Hair Maintaince and Retention Guide: Types 3c and 4 What afro ethnic women have been taught about hair has a major influence on how each woman takes care of her hair. The fact is we come from so many varied cultural backgrounds and our hair textures vary (from a very thick tightly kinky curl to very fine naturally straight). There are many textures in between the above mentioned. When I talk about afro ethnic hair I must identify the texture type I am giving information about. In this book I will be discussing techniques helpful for hair type 3c and all the type 4’s. These hair types need a lot of patience and care. Sort of like tending a garden and watching seeds and bulbs bloom into beautiful healthy vibrant flowers (this cannot be achieved without a lot of time, effort and care.) Developing a regular hair care regime, using products that your hair responds well to is very important. After much hair growth heartbreak, I started researching how hair grows. I learned about hair types and more importantly how those precious strands stay on your head. Reading about hair became my obsession. I learned what I could and applied the new information to my daily hair regime. Guess what? My hair stopped breaking off and began retaining length.
