What if the person who knew you best and loved you most forgot your face, and couldn’t remember your name?

A nursing facility is everyone’s solution for what to do about Sara, but her husband, Jack, can’t bear to live without her.

With reluctance, he arranges to admit her to an assisted living facility. But, on the day of admission, Sara is having one of her few good days, and he is unable to follow through. Instead, he takes them on an impulsive journey to confront their past and reclaim their future. In the end, he realizes that staying together at any cost is what truly matters.

For just one night, Alyse seeks refuge in the arms of a beautiful stranger.

And her recklessness finally has consequences.

The city of legend is bringing its legends back to life.

They come now, Alyse.

Run.

fletcherAbout Green Card Soldier:

Green Card Soldier is an historic adventure novel that follows the exploits of Andro Babich – a naïve, but inquisitive teenage soccer star frustrated by his mundane life on the family farm in Bosnia. In the early 1990s, Andro’s sporting hopes are drowned as the former Yugoslavia is battered by thunderous storms of religious and nationalistic disgust that rip apart families, villages and the vast Balkan countryside. Once-civil debate decays into hate mongering, land grabbing and ethnic cleansing on all sides.

This tragic tale is told by Heath Winslow – a cynical, yet self-deprecating, war correspondent who, for decades, has seen much the same in other locales around the globe. Both characters challenge readers with the question: Can life become richer – and people stronger – when we look beyond labels to appreciate one another for the unique individuals we are?

In the years that follow, Andro escapes to Greece, sails to America and joins the Army. As a Green Card Soldier, he soon earns his U.S. citizenship. Andro then returns to Bosnia as a USAID worker. During these vexing escapades, he meets a multitude of dynamic people and faces a mountain of barriers to reaching his life’s goal. This swarm of forces tests his drive and attempts to skew his moral compass. Andro eventually has an epiphany about achieving his quest… his life’s goal. In the end, our Green Card Soldier identifies several simple, but universal truisms that he intends to plant as part of his former homeland’s rebirth.

41KZLNY1VELAbout Cluck The Undercover Chicken By G. Eric Francis:

“Cluck The Undercover Chicken” is a love story.

Wait, that isn’t it.

It’s an action adventure filled with thrills, intrigue and danger.

Well, it does have that.

It has a hero that kids can look up to.

That definitely isn’t true, despite what that “hero” thinks.

Sigh…here’s the truth.

It’s a story about a rooster who can’t stand being called a rooster, who also spends his time arguing with the writer of the book, while trying to save his planet (made of a mutated egg shell) from a crazed hen who wants equal rights…as long as she is absolute ruler.

And you think you have problems.

“Cluck” is a book that middle aged-kids (and perhaps some adults) will enjoy. An agent with “The Eggency”, Cluck is the best at what he does. Sadly, his ego is as massive as his skills.

Besides being blinded by his arrogance, Cluck is helped along by “ST”, the writer of his adventures and a voice only he can hear. While this causes some to question his sanity, together they make an uneasy, but successful partnership.

When a hen named “The Fan” (named because she has a deadly hand fan with her at all times) forms a worldwide cult in order to take over the planet, it’s up to Cluck to toss a feather in her plans…if his ego doesn’t trip him up first.

Written for the young with laughs built in for all, “Cluck” is a book meant to be an unique reading experience; a quick read that you will remember for a long time.

dont-hit-me-coverAbout DON’T HIT ME! by Vanessa de Largie:

“Vanessa’s writing is very powerful and quite haunting. She conveys a strong sense of the terror, bewilderment and paralysis of a young woman caught in the classic, incomprehensible environment of domestic violence. Some parts of the manuscript are quite shocking, even for someone like me who has read a great deal about domestic violence and spoken to a number of victims. Her creative, almost poetic approach to the text, with its short, journal-like sections, is unusual for a book on this subject, but it works very effectively to emphasis the fragmented, surreal nature of the narrator’s experience.”
~Teresa Pitt ~ Former Senior Commissioning Editor, Lothian Books

If you are looking to read a conventionally written book about domestic violence then this book is NOT for you.

This book is untraditional and unconventional; it’s a true diarised account of my time living with an abusive man from 2001 to 2003. It does not unfold as a normal story would instead it unfolds as a real story did.

At the time, the only way I could metabolise my experiences, was to keep a journal. Domestic violence is erratic, fractured and unpredictable – as is my book.

This book does not have to be read from first page to last page consecutively. I have included a contents page, so you can read a fragment at a time – if you wish. Choose your own adventure.

These writings are organic with nothing changed and minimal editing.

If my journey through domestic violence inspires only one woman to flee her deadly predicament, this collation of writings has been a success.

CoverAbout Connie by Sarah Pliton:

“My eyes widened as I watched the rhythmic timing of her stroke slow as she headed for the steps at the far end of the pool. Veering towards the pool steps I knew she would soon be revealing herself to me. The back of her head lifted almost fully from the water for the first time, the sun glinting off her slick, silken hair, the tops of her shoulders about to follow.

Languid, short breaststrokes moved her closer to the first step as her hand came up to gather her hair in a bunch behind her head, quickly whipping it to the right, the tips leaping out of the water, a stream of water splashing away from her. Her slender neck now exposed as her hand squeezed the water from her dark, silky locks.

She flicked her head quickly to the left to clear that irritating, unwanted wetness from her ear, and then just as quickly, flicked it to the right. Her legs had moved underneath her as her feet touched the pool bottom, lifting her shoulders higher out of the water, revealing the flimsy cross-over straps of her jet black swimsuit. Both hands moved to the sides of her face as she brought them back to flatten her hair. Tilting her head back as she did so, I caught a glimpse of her high cheekbones.

As she straightened her back, I saw the full extent of her broad, lightly-muscled shoulders, the deep scalloped cutaway of her swimsuit plunging down her slick back. Her legs now doing their best to walk her closer to the first step as her yet-to-be revealed hips swivelled, struggling against the pressure of the water.

My thigh clenched involuntarily as this water goddess continued to emerge, revealing herself to me in a delightful, slow-motion unveiling…”

Bad boy Kane Carrington’s image is what gets him the job protecting Annie and her Hawaiian ranch but it’s an image he’s aiming to ditch. This time he wants to get the girl–not the blame. He can’t resist a call for help from his secret high school love, only to find he’s still the “bad boy” to her golden girl image.

But now he’s a man, not a boy and Annie Ventura can’t resist him. But does he have to destroy her memories of her dead husband in order to seal the deal?

As they work together to get to the bottom of the harassment, memories return and emotions are rekindled. Annie learns that protecting the past for her son just might lead to her losing their future.

Dead-Medium-New-Cover-Art-SCAbout Dead Medium:

The deathly silence is about to be broken. She disliked the company of others and death did little to warm her spirit. She had led an independent life and she faced death in much the same way. She was finally alone, finally free from the mindless babble of others, at least that’s what she thought. May Elizabeth Trump was the rarest of spirits and she was none too happy about it either. She was a dead medium, a ghost who can speak with the living, and her services were to become in great demand. Flung into the limelight and smothered with unwanted attention, May soon discovers that it is not only ghosts with long awaited messages that have taken an interest in her. Something dark was lurking in the shadows, stalking her. Even the dead are not left to rest in peace. Dead Medium: A humorous, character driven story and a unique vision of life after death. Not your average ghost story.

Who says Heat can’t be Sweet?

Welcome to the World of Smart and Sexy — Contemporary Romances with passion and heart.

Can the love of a good man bring you back to life? Dr. Liam Mason wants to try…

Madison Spencer is a focused medical student, concerned only with work and paying the bills. She hides her beauty and once passionate spirit behind a quiet plain Jane facade. Since she was drugged, stripped, and photographed by a vengeful ex, she has stayed away from men and kept her heart and body safe. But the loneliness is becoming more than she can bear.

When heart-stoppingly gorgeous Dr. Liam Mason walks into her world, she knows she’s in trouble. The attraction is instant, but Madison expects her past to be a deal-breaker.

Instead, Liam offers to bring her back to life with passion and pleasure. No love, no commitment, just straight-up fun. Madison’s sensible mind resists, but her body is willing. Together the young doctors explore days and nights of pleasure, slowly becoming much more than bedmates.

Deep inside, each wonders if they’ve found their perfect match. But their fears threaten to destroy the world they’re building together.

Will they each be strong enough and brave enough to risk their hearts to have it all?

But a cryptic message from his journalist friend Morgan, thrusts him back into the shadowy world of murder, corruption and an even more sinister plot that threatens the United States and the security of the world.

BookCoverAbout The Weekly Menu: Healthified Gluten-Free Comfort Food by Deana Larkin Evans:

The Weekly Menu is a must-have gluten-free cookbook!

The recipes in The Weekly Menu are a collection of yummy comfort foods found in favorite cookbooks, on the Food Network or from popular food blogs. The recipes were converted into healthier, gluten-free and dairy-light versions of the original. And they simply taste delicious! Over 50+ recipes include favorites like Chicken Andouille Gumbo, Sloppy Joes, White Chicken Enchiladas, Oven Baked Chicken Tenders with Buffalo Sauce, Spicy Turkey Meatball Sandwiches, Italian Veggie Popover Pizza, Teriyaki Chicken Tenders, No Cheese Mini Quiches, Mini Pepperoni Pizzas, Brussels Sprouts Salad, Carrot Cake Muffins, Sweet Potato Brownies and Chocolate Zucchini Muffins.

The Weekly Menu makes planning gluten-free dinners simple and convenient. It is organized into six weekly menu plans with shopping lists, kitchen tips and beautiful color pictures. Most weeknight recipes are quick and easy to prepare with simple ingredients in the pantry, fresh produce and protein. Once a week, you will find a vegetarian or meatless dish as well. There are delish breakfast muffins and cookies, as well as finger foods or appetizers that are perfect for entertaining diet-restricted friends.

This cookbook series is the result of a compromise between the gluten sensitive author and her over-the-top comfort food loving husband. Learning to eat gluten-free is a steep learning curve, but critical for those who have Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity. A change in lifestyle opened their eyes to the food industry and started a path to cleaner eating and making better choices with unprocessed foods, better fats, lean proteins and lots of fresh veggies. It’s all about cooking from scratch made simple enough for the beginner home cook or busy mom.

Since most of the original recipes made enough food for 4-8 people, portions were reduced to an appropriate meal for two adults in order to save money and reduce food waste. If you have a larger family, simply double the ingredients or check out the link to the original recipes (it’s much easier to multiply than divide). Bon Appétit!

img019About The Sound of Sirens by David Carter:

The ancient city of Chester, Friday night, and the weekend starts here. High summer, skimpy fashions, it’s a humid night, and the town’s relaxed. It’s 11pm and the pubs are beginning to close. The band has finished playing and are packing their instruments away, but the night is young.

A young man enters the crowded bar. Walks to the small stage. Pulls a handgun from his light jacket and empties four shots into the lead singer. One, two, three, four. Waves the gun at the stunned and shocked crowd. Yelling, hollering and screaming break out, the crowd part like the Red Sea, and the killer walks through the valley of death and out into the night, laughing as he goes.

The sound of sirens floats across the humid city.

Inspector Darriteau is soon on the scene. He only lives locally, and truth is, he’d much rather be at work than lying in bed. The local crime reporter turns up too, Gardenia Floem, nice woman, nice teeth.

‘Is this drugs related?’ she asks.

‘How the hell do I know? Get her out of here!’

So begins David Carter’s new Walter Darriteau murder mystery, “The Sound of Sirens”, but is it drugs related, Walter ponders, and if it isn’t, what’s it all about?

He doesn’t yet know it but this is only the first of three equally dreadful killings.

A Dead Red Heart

April 17, 2014

I sort of fell into the job of running a crop-dusting business when my dad decided he’d rather go on a cruise than take another season of lazy pilots, missing flaggers, testy farmers and horrific hours. After two years at the helm, I handed him back the keys and fled to a city without any of the above. And no, I was never a crop-duster.
I write about a tall, blond and beautiful ex-model turned crop-duster who, to quote Lalla Bains, says: “I’ve been married so many times they oughta revoke my license.” I wanted to give readers a peek at the not so-perfect -life of a beautiful blond. Lalla Bains is no Danielle Steele character, she’s not afraid of chipping her manicure. Scratch that, the girl doesn’t have time for a manicure what with herding a bunch of recalcitrant pilots and juggling work orders just to keep her father’s flagging business alive.

One of my favorite places was Boston, and that’s where the Days Trilogy came about. As I walked along the beach, I imagined a stranger following me. Then that daydream led to the man being a stalker. Of course, the hero had to be a U.S. Marshal. I couldn’t find a book with all three from the Cape Cod area. So I wrote my own… then one book led to three.

Long Holler Road

April 19, 2014

I love writing what I know, which is southern, historical thrillers filled with plenty of action, drama and adventure. I also have another alter ego which compels me to write modern, dark thrillers. I try to write dialogue as accurately as possible, using the vernacular and colloquialisms of the place and time, without making it difficult to read for non-southerners.

Nine Days With Padre Pio by John M. Wasikowski

April 19, 2014

John M. Wasikowski is one of America’s foremost amateur hagiographers (a sort of biographer of popular Catholic saints). While many hagiographers are devoted to the complete writings of a saint, Mr. Wasikowski has focused his books on the miracles of the saints and prayers to those saints.

He explains: “The reason I chose to write about the miracles of various saints was to not only encourage devotion to the saints, but to give the reader hope and persistence to their prayers. In addition, I make it a point to write about miracles that are modern-day miracles, as well as those in the lifetime of the saint.”

“The saints,” he continues, “are not mere relics of the past. They are powerful friends of God eager to assist those who call upon them at any time. Yes, right now; yes, you!”

He has a great devotion to St. Joseph, St. Andre Bessette (a famous devotee of St. Joseph), and the great Pope John Paul II. This led him to build CatholicChurchSaints.com and JohnPaultheSaint.com, as resources for those wanting to learn more about popular Catholic saints.

The Keeper

April 19, 2014

R. L. Mosz keeps busy working with special-needs children and residents of a rehabilitation center. When time allows, her interests include: feeding the birds, writing, cooking, recycling, walking, and reading. She particularly enjoys trees, hedges of all kinds, birds, and creeks (see book trailer), but is grateful for all the gifts of nature.

She lives each day thankful for all blessings and mindful of a quote from her favorite book, “Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

Following is a poem she wrote about her novel, THE KEEPER:

The Keeper

Decades long performance;
life shed along the way.
Suffused in great perfection
the truth inside him lay.

Though not his fault he wanders,
his heart up on the shelf,
she’s sent as a reminder
destruction of himself.

What We Leave Behind

April 19, 2014

Matthew Alan grew up in Canton, Ohio. After graduating from Kenyon College, and earning a masters degree from Western Illinois, he began a career in teaching and coaching. Matthew currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I started writing this novel in 2009, after losing my remarkable dog, Rawley, to a bone tumor in a very emotional process. As the next year continued, my other canine companion of twelve years, Max, passed away from liver cancer. In that same period, a very dear coaching colleague – far too young to deal with her medical issues – passed away from cancer. Not to be a bearer of grief, as we all deal with these events in our lives, but from 2008-2012, I watched as my father battled pancreatic cancer, fighting with amazing resolve.
Amidst so much loss and pain, it was easy to write the sad parts of this book. The trick was keeping the hope, the love, the fight, and the joy – that they all managed to hold onto – represented in my heroine, Jane.
Despite numerous challenges, I knew I wanted to push through and finish this work when a former teammate from college lost her struggle with cancer earlier this winter. This book’s dedication is for those people who struggle with illness and pain, and yet never lose their optimism or their love for others. I hope I do them – and through them, all of you – justice.
