Love Lost in Time Relativity by George G. Nyman

 

 The night was clear and moonless. Paul was gazing out the window of the spacecraft, his work completed, and resigning himself to passenger mode for the next twenty-two minutes, allowing the 747 to carry Relativity 1 to the lower limits of the stratosphere, where it would be launched into space. Visibility was unrestricted and the stars were lit over the desert sky, almost teasing Relativity 1 to chase them. Paul felt the acceleration as the massive jumbo jet began to rumble down the runway, slowly at first, but picking up speed as the stars beckoned above.

Mother’s Nature: A Novel of Life and Death by Steven Ira

 

 A brilliant young pharmaceutical research scientist, Dr. Sarah Mathews, is personally offended at the very idea of death, believing it to be totally “unnatural” and therefore unnecessary.

 

Making certain adjustments to the orthodox Biblical world view of her missionary father, Sarah sees in Nature more than a mere abstraction; she sees an “Ascendant Consciousness” which intended man, Nature’s crowning achievement, to live indefinitely in his wondrously crafted body. Death for man results from a mistake, a single flawed genetic sequence, and Sarah is convinced that flaw can be eradicated.

 

Sarah also believes Nature has provided defenses against the whole panoply of afflictions which arise from man’s primary genetic misfortune in the form of naturally occurring plant medicines. In fact, from Sarah’s perspective, rain forest plants are a veritable pharmacopeia just waiting to be discovered and refined. Her life’s work is to find plants from which to extract a wide range of medicines while she searches ultimately for the one which will provide the cure for mankind’s genetic death sentence.

The Sound of Sirens by David Carter

 

The ancient city of Chester, Friday night, and the weekend starts here. High summer, skimpy fashions, short skirts, tight jeans, it’s a hot night, and the town’s relaxed.

It’s 11pm and the pubs are beginning to close. The band has just finished playing; packing their instruments away, but the night is young.

A young man enters the still crowded pub. Walks up to the small stage. Pulls out a handgun 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, they part like the Red Sea, and he 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 Walter Darriteau is soon on the scene. He 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!

Self-Publishing and Libraries: What Librarians and Self-Publishers Need to Know by Denise Weldon – Siviy

 

 Are you a self-published author ignoring the billion $$$ library market? Or a librarian missing almost half the new bestsellers because of outdated policies on self-published works?

 

While over 4 out of 10 bestselling books are now self-published, many libraries still relegate self-published books to a few shelves of local authors. And Indie authors frequently ignore a billion $$$ library market that accounts for up to 50% of sales in some genres. It’s time for librarians and self-published authors to come together.

 

This book covers the issues involved in getting self-published books into libraries from every angle – technology, cataloging issues, platforms, vendor access, librarian bias – and from the perspectives of BOTH self-published authors and librarians. Heavily researched (as part of a graduate level MLS course), this book also reflects the author’s personal experience as a self-published author and her six years’ experience in library acquisitions and collection development.

Dance Like you Mean it by Jean Skartsiaris

What if you wrote a steamy, erotic novel that was so hot bookstores couldn’t keep it on their shelves? What if you couldn’t tell anyone you wrote it?

At night, nurse Cassie Calabria pens a bodice-ripper novel, using an alias. She sends it to a few agents, then forgets about it. She’s more than surprised when she gets an offer for a publisher to include her book, Wild Rose, in a “summer-of-love special.”

Wild Rose becomes a blazing bestseller.

Suddenly she realizes she can’t let anyone know that she wrote it. What would her children think? Or her own mother, who “taught her better,” and, worse, her husband who would question her made-up fantasies of sex on the beach.

How could she be thrown into the “red-light district” spotlight and still be a good mom?

Unless she went incognito.

Fatemarked by David Estes

The Hundred Years War has ravaged more than three generations of kings, queens, and citizens across the Four Kingdoms. Corrupt rulers dominate. Religious intolerance runs rampant. The cycle of vengeance continues to turn with the seasons.

An ancient prophecy by a legendary oracle has been long forgotten. The prophecy promises the return of peace to the Four Kingdoms on the backs of a chosen few, the fatemarked, individuals marked at birth and blessed with specific magical powers. One shall be the Kings’ Bane, and will bring death to the warmongering rulers, using fear to force peace; another shall be the Peacemaker, bestowed with the rare ability to heal. Opposite sides of the same coin, dark and light, death and life, the Kings’ Bane and the Peacemaker are responsible for the fate of an entire continent.

As they fight to achieve their destinies, adversity will hinder them in every realm: in the frozen north, assassination attempts and a brutal power struggle; in the holy west, a vicious queen and her self-righteous army of warriors; in the mysterious iron-clad forest of the east, revenge and glory rule the day; and in the southern empires of Calyp and Phanes, maturing dragons, slaves, and a civil war.

Sorcery may be nothing more than a people’s superstition with little basis in fact, but in the face of such feats their beliefs only grow stronger.

Peace in Kensrik will be short-lived. The people still demand more drastic changes to the way they are governed, and even a prime minister sympathetic to Chandra’s plight can’t do better than suggest that Chandra flee for her own safety. How wonderfully convenient that an invitation should arrive from a land not even marked on the world maps of the day, suggesting one place where Chandra might be not only welcome but respected.

That’s what the sender is counting on; the same puppet master who hoped that Lords Merton and Belheff would get the job done. Alathea has plans to reshape the entire world, and they encompass a dangerous obsession with Derek and Chandra. She knows Chandra must accept that invitation. She knows Chandra will have nowhere else to go, and she expects poor bewitched Derek to follow Chandra until Alathea can save him from humiliating servitude…

Odysseus: Bound by Stephen Logsdon

In the year 2164, humanity is expanding outward into the galaxy at an unprecedented rate and has yet to meet up with another form of intelligence to impede its progress. Knowing it’s only going to be a matter of time before it does, it was decided, and at considerable cost, to dispatch ships more qualified to search out and make contact with these unknown civilizations, all in the hope of promoting peaceful coexistence.

It is aboard one of these vessels that we find Lieutenant Barrett Hannom, a navigator who wanted to see more of the universe. With this particular career choice, he would be sitting on a bridge aboard a starship, guaranteeing himself a front row seat on every new star system they entered. Maybe there would be the occasional bit excitement, and maybe it would be intermingled with a whole lot more monotony of the scientific survey, but to Barret it didn’t matter. He was out here at the frontier to explore.

But never in his wildest dreams did he imagine being forced into a fight for his life during a far from peaceful alien encounter. In fact, this first-contact thing had gone so bad, all of humanity’s representatives aboard didn’t know what hit them before it was too late.

Return to Me: God’s Heart Cry by N.A. Newlan

Return to Me; God’s Heart Cry starts by introducing the prophets, their life, experiences and their messages. It is written in an interactive style that through your imagine allows you to experience what they have and by a series of questions brings their world into yours. For example, how would you respond to being abandoned, found by a king’s daughter and raised as royalty or what if you were eaten by a big fish only to be spit out on the beach, how would you feel?

Would you be calm standing before hungry lions with no fear? Would you stand up for what you believed in even if you knew, if you did, you would be thrown in a furnace to be burned alive? How would you feel and what would you do in those circumstances?

Return to Me; God’s Heart Cry turns to our beginning and our reconciliation. It takes us back to the very beginning where it all started. It shows us how sin entered the world and puts you in the garden for you to be the judge of the events. After you live the events, you see how God provided the reconciliation necessary by sending His own Son. Jesus, God’s Son, lived a perfect life, died on a cross to bear the penalty for our sin, who rose from the dead on the third day and who is now seated at the right hand of the Father. It is through Him and only Him, we have reconciliation with God.

Racial Realities and Post-Racial Dreams: The Age of Obama and Beyond by Julius Bailey

Racial Realities and Post-Racial Dreams is a moral call, a harkening and quickening of the spirit, a demand for recognition for those whose voices are whispered.

Julius Bailey straddles the fence of social-science research and philosophy, using empirical data and current affairs to direct his empathy-laced discourse.

He turns his eye to President Obama and his critics, racism, income inequality, poverty, and xenophobia, guided by a prophetic thread that calls like-minded visionaries and progressives to action.

The book is an honest look at the current state of our professed city on a hill and the destruction left on the darker sides of town.

The Ugly Princess: The Legend of the Winnowwood by Henderson Smith

 

What would you give up to be beautiful? I don’t mean attractive, or pretty or any other term you could conjure up to describe that thing most women seek to be or most men seek to be with.

 

I mean staggeringly beautiful, men falling at your feet with hopeless adoration as they gaze upon you dumbfounded. That beautiful. I could become that beautiful if I chose, but only with a steep price. Would you pay the price? Does that call to your heart?

 

It doesn’t call to mine. Yes, when I look at the girl in the mirror, I see a young woman of average height and slight build. I see her lovely emerald green eyes and I see her coarse, orange hair poking out in all directions like some unnatural haystack.

 

I see the forty-seven warts that line her face, which accompany one large lump and two small boils. You’d probably think that I would be more than eager to trade for the great gift of beauty because I know some, if not all of you, would call me hideous. But I don’t think of myself as ugly.

 

I think of myself as powerful, strong and fierce – for I have magical powers – powers that amaze and terrify me at times. And today is the most important day of my life, because today my mother will say the words over me and seal my fate. For I, Olive, am the last of the Winnowwood and this is my story.

Matthew arrives in Virginia in May of 1661, and any hope he had of finding someone willing to listen to his tale of unlawful abduction is quickly extinguished. He also realises that no one has ever survived the seven years of service – not on the plantation Suffolk Rose.

Fortunately, Matthew has a remarkable wife who has no intention of letting her husband die, and so Alex Graham sets off on a perilous journey to bring him home. Alex is plagued by nightmares in which Matthew is reduced to a wheezing wreck by his ordeals. She prays for a miracle to carry her swiftly to his side, but fate has other plans, and what should have been a two month crossing turns into a yearlong adventure from one side of the Atlantic to the other.

It’s a comic farce steeped in the charms of the Pacific Northwest, full of poetry, science fiction, and flurries of bombastic charm mingling with the splendor of how far you can go in life without getting anywhere else.
