Gomer: The Prostitute & The Priest by Tanya M Baker


Synopsis: have you heard the story of Gomer, the prostitute int he bible that married the priest Hosea? I bet you never heard it like this before. Pastor Tanya M Baker puts a modern day twist on this love story. A must read for the faint at heart!


She had begun a life of prostitution at the age of fourteen. That was twelve years ago, and it was all she knew. She had spent her entire adult life and the better part of her childhood in the lower echelons of prostitution. Now, imagine if the bible characters, the prostitute who marries the priest Hosea lived today and in our times, what their love story would have been like. Author, Pastor, Tanya Baker gives us an amazing fictional account of one of the greatest love stories of all time. There was more to the prostitute than what you heard. She was a woman who quickly was put in a role foreign to her and rejected. She suffered from psychological issues, rejection, post traumatic stress disorder and postpartum depression. She was like many women in ministry and those who rise from the fouls of life on the street trying to survive in a cruel world. A world that would not let her forget her past. After reading this novel, you will be inspired to love from the purest of heart and as God loves. You will hear the prostitute's side of the popular biblical tale. For she, could not have known that God had another plan for her. She, couldn't have known that she had a name that would be impossible to forget…a name of biblical proportions. She was called Gomer.

In His Corner - A Sports Romance by Vina Arno


In His Corner by Vina Arno

ER and romance—they don’t go together. That’s what the beautiful and brainy Dr. Siena Carr thinks, until a gorgeous Olympic gold-medalist boxer walks into her ER with a cut that needs stitching. He’s Tommy Raines, also known as the Juggernaut.
Within the first few minutes inside the ER, he strips naked. His body looks like a sculpture by Michelangelo, a glorious sight that sends her heart racing and her face burning. “What are you doing?” she asks. “Mr. Raines, please put on your clothes.”
“Sorry about that,” he says. “I thought you’re supposed to check me out.”
Did he just say check him out? “Mr. Raines, this is an ER, not a bar. I don’t check out patients. Do you mean to say check up?”
He smiles. “Yeah, check up.”
This unforgettable encounter is the beginning of a hot but tension-filled romance because as it turns out, they are opposites. Siena, who was named by her parents after an Italian city, was born into money, while he comes from a blue-collar background. She’s an Ivy League graduate. He’s a college dropout. She’s older than him at twenty-six; he’s twenty-two.
Most of all, Siena is dedicated to healing patients, while the Juggernaut excels at knocking out his opponents. He’s America’s most promising boxer, the perfect combination of Muhammad Ali’s charm and Mike Tyson’s brutal power. When he falls for Siena, he is weeks away from a million-dollar boxing match, his first as a pro. Will he win the fight? How will their unlikely romance survive their differences?

A Blues Life - A Memoir by Nome Trattenuta

KDP 5 Day Free Promo - April 24 thru April 28


The late, great P.G. Wodehouse is the primary influence on Nome Trattenuta’s narrative style and sense of humor, though Mr. Trattenuta’s subject matter leans more toward that found in Russell Brand’s or Hunter S. Thompson’s more disreputable confessions.  John Mortimer’s Rumpole stories, early Rod Stewart album liner notes, Stephen Fry’s memoirs, every episode of Monty Python and the collected ravings of Daffy Duck have all left their respective marks too.  “A Blues Life” uses English English spelling and is peppered with British slang (with explanatory footnotes for American readers) and somehow finds a middle ground between a high-brow command of the language and the low-brow antics described.  And though no photographic evidence has been offered, compensation has been made by way of the inclusion of some of Nome Trattenuta’s lyrics germain to the chapters they follow.  (Perhaps one day you will hear the recordings…)  But first, last and in-between, “A Blues Life” is the tale of an artist's struggle with Bipolar Disorder in the course of his life and professional career—his ups and downs, triumphs and failures, and times of pride and joy pitted against those of woe and truly comedic embarrassment.  Bits of it would translate well to film if you’re reading, Mr. Gilliam!

Ribbons of Death

The ancients believed that once in a Blue Moon a child with Peacetaker powers is born. Such child, when grown to maturity, can seed murderous madness in people's minds by merely walking amongst them. A simple amulet activates the Peacetaker’s powers.

Stella Hunter is a disgraced academic, hiding in a small town-nowhere Montana. The book critics killed her chances to warn the world about myths and legends behind the myths and legends.  As a result she is bitter, filled with self-doubt and can’t face the world or herself in the mirror. Then one snowy evening, a stranger with a horribly scarred face stomps on the porch of her bright-yellow-siding house, holding her controversial book. Then he shows her the bloody fingerprints left by the book’s now-deceased owner, marking a passage that claims Peacetaker myths and legends are anything but. The product of mythological revenge from ancient times has survived to threaten modern-day humanity. And suddenly, not just Stella’s fate but the fate of humanity depends on whether she was right or wrong when she wrote her infamous book.

Long Gone Man - a mystery/thriller by Phyllis Smallman


Set in the Pacific Northwest, this series follows a homeless woman who calls herself Singer Brown. A musician who sings on the street for coins, Singer watches the ebb and flow of life around her. With a knack for being in the right place at the wrong time, Singer is one of society's invisible people. But being unseen is an incredible advantage when you're digging for secrets.

Long Gone Man is the first book in this new series, and has won the Gold Medal Award for 2014 from the independent Publishers Association in the Mystery/Thriller category.
Phyllis Smallman, author of the Sheri Travis mystery series, begins a new series with Long GoneMan, featuring Singer Brown, a middle-aged woman who'd be comfortable at Travis's Florida bar.

Brown peddles her voice for coins on street corners, and lives in an old van full of aches, pain and memories. The memory of a past lover's suspicious death leads her to Glenphiddie Island in the Pacific Northwest, just in time to learn of the murder of the man she suspects is the source of her 20 years of pain.

Suspects include a widow, other band members and, for some, Singer herself. Add motive, revenge, a gloriously obscure setting and the RCMP, and Smallman delivers a fresh take on the old saying that revenge is a dish best served cold.

The Last Enemy - a Romantic Suspense by Pauline Baird Jones


I'd been "inducted" into the world of romance writers and found them gutsy, bright and underestimated. Being the kind of person I am, I thought what fun it would be to pit a romance writer against a US Marshal. It was a hoot taking all the misconceptions about romance writers and using them against my poor hero. I liked the idea of the hero finding himself attracted, totally against his will, of course--to a woman he believes is already dead. I found I couldn't sustain it for long, just because my guy was so darn smart, but that meant I needed a killer with a twist, someone who could, at least for a short time, muddy the crime scene.
I'm a bit afraid of heights myself and one night I had this vivid dream about a wacko forcing my dream character to face her fears out on this ledge. When I originally started the story, it was set in New Orleans, but I needed a place with a FreeNet (at the time) to make the story work. And Denver had one and Lots of "up" for Dani to be afraid of. Of course, by the time I finished rewriting the book, technology had changed so much, she didn't need access to a free net to do what I needed her to do. I had this whole, hilarious scene with Dani in a library that I deleted. And another where she dressed like a man.

My husband had a business trip to Denver, so I asked him to check out the area, scope out the Federal building (which got him in a spot of trouble with some real US Marshals as he was taking pictures of the building and  being was most thorough about it.)  After that, being a National Park addict, hubby made his way to Rocky Mountain National Park and brought me back info on Long's Peak--the only "teener" (Peak 13,000 ft above sea level) that you can actually hike up. It was perfect for my (and Spook's twisted) purposes.

Visiting the Sins by Melanie Denman


In her riotous debut novel, Melanie Denman probes the silent sacrifices of motherhood with unflinching honesty and warmhearted amusement. Set in the Bible Belt of Deep East Texas, Visiting the Sins is a darkly funny story about mothers and daughters, naked ambition, elusive redemption, and all the torment it s possible to inflict in the name of family.

Down through the decades, the lofty social aspirations of the feisty but perennially dissatisfied Wheeler women Pokey, the love-starved, pistol-packing matriarch; Rebanelle, the frosty former beauty queen turned church organist; and Curtis Jean, the backsliding gospel singer are exceeded only by their unfortunate taste in men and a seemingly boundless capacity for holding grudges. A legacy of feuding and scandal lurches from one generation to the next with tragic consequences that threaten to destroy everything the Wheeler women have sacrificed their souls to build.

Visiting the Sins is old-fashioned Southern storytelling at its hilarious, heartbreaking, poetic best. --Frank Mills If the Devil Had a Wife

Visiting the Sins' is Melanie Denman's debut novel, an uproarious series of vignettes about the Wheeler family, a small-town clan dominated by strong willed women with sharp tongues and an unfortunate habit of marrying weak men. --Gary B. Borders - A Hanging in Nacogdoches

Melanie Denman comes from a long and celebrated tradition of southern writers combining pathos and humor with glorious results. Her characters-the women in particular-are marvelous: irreverent, scandalous and unapologetically themselves. Her language is as fresh and original as they are, and she uses a wonderfully unconventional structure to create this multi-generational family saga... has you laughing and crying, sometimes within the very same scene... --Malena Watrous - If You Follow Me

Few can depict rural East Texans or rural Southerners, for that matter with such accuracy and sensitivity as Melanie Denman did in Visiting the Sins. Or with such heartbreaking realism... She plumbs the depths of their personalities with warm-hearted humor for their human comedy, and with wisdom and understanding for the flaws that go with mankind s eternal condition. ... --F.E. Abernethy- Let the River Run Wild: Saving the Neches

"...strong relationships between the characters and the history of the old town... As the characters age through the story you can actually follow their thought process-thanks to the way Denman develops them and portrays their relationships." --Robert C. Nuzum -- Old Spanish Trail Treasure
