Antonis Kakoyannis
About the Author:

Antonis Kakoyannis was born and raised in Skepasto, Kalavryta, Greece. As a teenage boy, he was an eyewitness to many of the events that took place in Kalavryta during the years of Axis occupation. His later experience as a reserve officer in the Greek Army provided him with an understanding of military matters. After receiving his B.S. in Economics and Business in Athens, Greece, he won a Greek state scholarship to earn his Masters of Science in Economics from the London School of Economics. During his career, he originally worked for the Greek government and later, after emigrating to the United States, became a successful small business owner in Florida. Antonis Kakoyannis has published several articles in Greek magazines and his related book The Nazi Savagery in Greece was published in Greek in 2000 by Kastanotis Editions. He and his wife have four children and currently divide their time living in the United States and Greece.

Description:

In December 1943, after months battling resistance fighters, Nazi units marched through the mountains of the Greek Peloponnese,conducting reprisalsagainst Greek civilians. The operation reached its brutal conclusion with the massacre of 438 civilian men and boys in Kalavryta. On that cursed day in December, Kalavryta became one of the martyr towns of World War II. 

As the years passed, the need to record eyewitness accounts became increasingly urgent. Driven by the need to document the true stories, the author interviewed over seventy people who lived through those tumultuous times. The author himself witnessed much of this conflict firsthand as a teenager living in the region. He now brings these events to life through the personal narratives of his own family and other townspeople and villagers. This book recounts the terror and confusion of that period and the war’s impact on ordinary Greek citizens trying to persevere through the cruelties of war.

About the Author:

At this juncture in my life I have a very strong desire to write a children’s fantasy story. I suppose the desire to write has been lying dormant. When I was a teen I wrote a poem as a classroom assignment and found that I enjoyed creating with words. Over the years I have written poems for my eyes only. I submitted one of my poems in a contest several years ago and it was selected for publication.  “Lonely Heart” published by the International Library of Poetry as a compilation in The Silent Journey

I wrote a short story for one of my daughters when she was around five years old about her backyard adventures. She loved it! Sometimes when my nieces would visit I made up stories to entertain them. I held them capative for a little while telling a story off the top of my head.

Here I am many years later pursuing my passion to write.

Earth Allies is a very good read.  I wrote the story to deliver a message.  The message is love, unity, and compassion. 

Description:

Twelve-year old Ethan decided to take a short-cut home, through the woods, from school after band practice.  While making his way home through the woods Ethan has an experience that he never imagined; he encounters two fairies.  Frightened and confused he runs home.  It wasn’t until his second encounter with the fairies that he learned what they wanted. The fairies explained to him that Gaia/Mother Earth is in danger of being destroyed and they ask Ethan to help them save her. Ethan eventually agrees to help but this is no easy task.  He is faced with several challenges trying to save Gaia/Mother Earth and he has a very short time frame to turn everything around. 

This story is a fantasy, written for youths ages 10-13.  It is warm and heartfelt.  Your child will enjoy reading a wonderful story about fairies and children coming together to save Gaia/Mother Earth.

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.

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.

Ratan Kaul
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.

Sally L. Ford
About the Author:

My book is the culmination of a personal 20-year spiritual journey. As happens with major shifts in life, I was catapulted onto this journey by my husband's life-threatening illness. I was terrified and had no place to turn. In situations like this, this is when most people turn to God,  Trouble was God and I weren't on speaking terms--I had been raised with the hell and damnation of the Baptist church and I had decided God wasn't such a nice guy. So, I found my comfort in books, New Thought books that suggested ways of living that were completely foreign to me.  Books that told me I could create my life however I wanted and that, in fact, I was entirely and solely responsible for my life and my circumstances. I began to practice the things I was learning and they were changing my life in significant ways.  I learned that what you think about, you bring about.  I learned that the Universe (my term for God) was for me and not against me. I learned that the Law of Attraction was a magnificent tool I could use to bring to me everything I wanted.

So, given my personal experiences, I wanted to share what I had learned with others so that they too could create a beautiful life.

Description:

My book outlines the steps I have learned in my own life that lead to success and happiness.  We each create our lives either by default (whatever happens, happens) or deliberately. I show you in my book how you can deliberately create your life using your thoughts, your feelings, your intuition, your attitude toward gratitude and  visualization.. And, then last but not least, how to take action to actually create the life of your dreams.

Gayle Ridinger and Paolo Pochettino
About the Author:

Gayle Ridinger was born in the United States, attended Oberlin College, and has family ties both to Italy and to the Civil War town of Gettysburg. She  teaches English and translation techniques at a university near Milan, Italy. For her  translations of modern Italian poetry, she received honorary knighthood from the President of Italy. She has also had a children's book, A STAR AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, published in five languages, including in the U.S. by Gareth Stevens.
Paolo Pochettino is a native of Milan and worked for years as an industrial manager in numerous countries. Piedmontese by origin and the descendant of a Napoleonic soldier, he has always had a deep interest in the Italian Risorgimento and the battles for liberty in his region.

THE SECRET PRICE OF HISTORY  is not the usual story of Italian-Americans retiring to Tuscany to try their hand at making wine but rather a book about Italians—some well-known and others not—who built America, as well as about the Americans who helped in the struggle for independence in Italy. It is a story where the idealism of these individuals stands out against the vulgarity and greed of our times which contributed to the general economic crisis.

Description:

THE SECRET PRICE OF HISTORY is an intriguing mix of a modern crime novel and an historical saga that explores the little-known overlapping connections between the American Civil War and the Italian RIsorgimento.

An ancient gold medallion and a treasure hunt marred by violence over the centuries are the link between a modern-day detective story concerning Angie Cebrelli, a young American TV weather girl who is wearing an old family medallion when she is shot in the arm during a Battle of Gettysburg re-enactment, and the 19th-century saga of Eleonora, a rebellious Roman woman (Angie's ancestor) and her two best friends and suitors, Sandor and Goffredo, part of the idealistic generation who fought for liberty, country, and solidarity in the Italian Risorgimento and the American Civil War.  They find the medallion after a violent face-off with French soldiers during the battle that temporarily dashes all hopes for a unified Italian Republic. The medallion is connected to an elusive treasure , a fragment of Alexander the Great’s  last treasure, which, if found, could help French Emperor Napoleon III secure his place in history. Ignorant of these connections, and desperate for money, the three friends consider having the medallion melted down, but circumstances have it otherwise. Eleonora, Goffredo, and Sandor will lose track of each other, believe each other dead, and re-find each other; they will continue their fervent fight for the cause of freedom, at the same time fleeing Napoleon III’s paid assassins.

The modern story takes place over the summer of 2008. A few days after Angie’s shooting, a photocopy of  the medallion is found on the mutilated body of Father Kevin, a priestly scholar researching Mithraism in Rome. The true expert on the medallion and treasure, however, is Kevin’s brilliant former student Damien Brandeau, currently in hiding in Italy. He  is the estranged, recluse son of the notorious U.S. housing magnate M.A. Brandeau, on the brink of bankruptcy, allied with the dangerous and powerful Vatican Bank, and determined to put his hands on the treasure by any means. Arriving in Europe, Angie joins forces with the unconventional Italian police detective, Filippo Dardanoni.  With Damien forced to flee from his father on a rampage of violence, their investigation becomes more frantic.

            Who will reach Damien first? Who will find the treasure?

            The protagonists find drama, death, and answers in Asti and its abandoned chalk mines.

            A tale full of true-life drama from the past as well as the horrors conceded in the present, THE SECRET PRICE OF HISTORY reveals how a treasure might be right under our noses without our being able to touch it.

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

Description:

El Eslabón Perdido del Amor es un libro para hombres que las mujeres no pueden dejar de leer. El autor analiza los efectos de la etapa pre y pos eyaculación en la vida del hombre y la pareja. Las consecuencias de la masturbación van mucho más allá del placer momentáneo que esta causa. El hombre se transforma en un ser desconocido, con sentimientos confundidos que le hacen dudar del afecto hacia su pareja. Si esta sensación se mantiene a través del tiempo,  puede arruinar la relación con su mujer, ya que ella se convertirá en un ser degradado, mal tratado y carente de afecto. Ella le dará a él lo que está recibiendo y esta situación se convertirá en un círculo vicioso destinado al fracaso. Además, el autor traslada este concepto a otros niveles de la vida real, como la decadencia del súper amante, la violencia doméstica y la mutación del matrimonio. Estos aspectos analizados de una forma muy directa y controversial, causarán un impacto en el lector que lo hará reflexionar y posiblemente entender  que su felicidad depende de hacer sentir amada a su pareja. Este libro es la herramienta para lograr que a tu mujer le provoque hacerte feliz. A través de esta obra, la mujer podrá entender el  comportamiento a veces extraño del hombre e identificarse con múltiples situaciones descritas en este libro.

She's an unschooler at heart and an ungraduate who made her own education in life, she thanks everyone she's ever met, they all taught her something. She landed on Earth in Karlskoga, Sweden, 1969 and has tried to adjust ever since. Tina's writing takes her off the beaten track and the best writing advice she ever got was, write what you want to find out more about. She lives in Dublin, Ireland with her non-traditional family.

This story is rewritten more times than Tina can remember, it’s her learning to write in English story and she’s immensely proud for not giving up, but she has given in to the fact that she does tell a story differently.  Tina loves dialogue, a lot, and she doesn’t pay attention to details as much as maybe she should, she likes the bigger picture, and for her deep hearted, radically honest conversations are it.

“No, I’m not bullied, sometimes it’s “just” school.”

She meets Sky, a homeschooled, disabled boy who self medicates on laughter and Sunny, a girl of unusual origin who insists she’s Milla’s guardian angel. “You’re more powerful than you know,” she says and Milla listens as the animals whose powers she has always been fascinated by suddenly comes to life through her.

Together with her Irish twin brother, Torsten, the foursome take on school in a battle to regain ownership of their own lives.

In this often outlandish story, four teens already of age, fight against school as the only option to journey through the start of life, but violence, punishments and threats can change minds, will it change theirs?

Will Milla be allowed to become who she is or made to fall back into line and follow the mass schooling?

About the Author:
Heather Abraham holds a BA and MA in Religious Studies from Georgia State University and is the founder and editor of the eMagazine Religion Nerd. Originally from Jeannette, Pennsylvania, she currently resides in Atlanta with her husband Teo and their three beloved dogs. The Bookie's Daughter is her first book.
 
Description:

A provocative and candid memoir spanning the first nineteen years of the author's life, The Bookie's Daughter resonates with elements of Sopranos and Running with Scissors-zany, violent, and oh-so-human. Written by Heather Abraham, The Bookie's Daughter is a wild ride through a childhood dominated by Big Al, the author's larger-than-life bookie father, and Bonnie, her trigger-happy alcoholic mother. Devoted to their family yet in thrall to their prodigious addictions, they recklessly plunged their daughters into a dangerous life of crime. Join The Bookie's Daughter in a perfect storm of adolescent angst, crime, and shocking adventures. Follow along as the author and her sister traverse a childhood where gambling, police raids, trials, public scorn, spitting Studda Bubbas, hitmen, IRA gunrunners, pedophiles, bodyguards, and midnight runs for illegal goods were considered routine. The narrative is twistedly entertaining, with a range of colorful wacky characters, as well as shockingly raw in its recognition of the destructive nature of dysfunctional family dynamics and parental addictions. Throughout a series of outrageous, oftentimes violent, misadventures, Abraham manages to conjure up loony vistas, thick with description and humorous acceptance

About the Author:

 

As someone with a background in both science and the arts, the challenge of blending and harmonizing them has always appealed to me. I studied molecular biology and epigenetics at the University of Massaschusetts, Amherst, where I obtained a Master’s degree; this gave me the background for my neurobiologist protagonist in The Last Good Fairy. Although there is no autobiographical basis to this novel, like the artist in the book, I create and sell found object art, a pursuit I’ve enjoyed for most of my adult life.

I’ve written my entire life, starting in second grade; I studied Creative Writing at Wellesley College, where I graduated with a double major in English Literature and Biology. My children’s book, The Legend of the Flying Hotdog, a fable about the power of kindness, was published by Green Tiger Press and optioned for film. I’m drawn to fairy tales for their deep roots in the human psyche, their allegorical wisdom, and the enchantment these tales have always brought me. 

Description:

 

Sachi, a brilliant young neurobiologist living and working in San Diego, has constructed her life as a carefully controlled experiment. Her intention is to hold all variables constant, thinking this will protect her from suffering and loss. But when a devastating event shatters her world, she must reconstruct her entire approach to living. An encounter with a mysterious, intriguing artist leads her down an unconventional path to healing and introduces her to the possibility of magic co-existing with the laws of science. And along the way, she discovers both her humanity and her spirit.

About the Author:

In 1983, thanks to a childhood connection, my husband Richard and I had an incredible employment situation land in our laps. We spent eighteen months living in the bottom floor of one wing of a stunning mansion in Costa Rica, all expenses paid plus a salary. The characters and locales we encountered during this experience were sublime in providing rich fodder for great stories, and Costa Rica itself is such a playful, eccentric, beautiful, and enchanting entity that it deserves all the recognition and attention it receives. 

My first novel, The Last Good Fairy, first published as a limited collector’s edition, won a New England Book Show Award for excellence in book design. That title and a linked collection of stories that take place during an out-of-control wildfire, Altar of Fire, are currently available on Kindle. My children’s book, The Legend of the Flying Hotdog, a fable about the power of kindness, was published by Green Tiger Press (Simon & Schuster), selected as one of the Best Kids’ Books of the year by Parents magazine, and optioned for film. I served as editor-in-chief for the literary magazine, The Hot Air Quarterly, for several years, and I obtained my formal education in creative writing at Wellesley College, where I graduated a Wellesley Scholar. 

Description:

Times were looking bleak after a year of unemployment for author Celeste White and her husband Richard. But a phone call from Richard’s fairy godmother, a wealthy heiress who offered them a dream job in Costa Rica, completely changed their fortune.  The story takes place during 1983 and 1984, during which time they lived next door to Commander Zero, leader of the Contras who were waging a counter-revolutionary war against the Sandanistas in neighboring Nicaragua. Before television had become widespread in the country, before the first high rise hotel was built in Costa Rica, before zip lines—even telephones and gas stations—were installed in the cloud forest of Monteverde, Costa Rica existed as it had for generations of happy, proud residents. Crazy Good Fortune offers a cornucopia of magical, delightful, and often hilarious experiences, populated by characters you will never forget. An intimate, affectionate portrait of a country and a people.
