Between Land and Sea - Kindle ebook by Joanne Guidoccio

When I announced the release of Between Land and Sea, a paranormal romance about an overweight, middle-aged ex-mermaid, I was surprised by the subsequent comments.

The typical male response was a Duchenne smile followed by a puzzled expression and several pointed questions...

Why is she so old?

Just how overweight is she?

Are you putting a fat mermaid on the cover?

The men had preconceived notions of what a mermaid should look like—wavy auburn tresses, mesmerizing green eyes, and a curvaceous twenty-something body.

The women, on the other hand, were intrigued by a mermaid who did not fit the stereotype and wanted to hear more about her reinvention story. Many of them had fond and not-so-fond memories of The Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale.

I also had mixed feelings about that fairy tale. The sad ending of the original version stayed with me, and to this day, I still feel sorry for the mute ex-mermaid who could only smile when the handsome prince married the princess. Knowing that the wedding morning would only bring heartbreak and seal her fate as “foam on the crest of waves” always saddened me.

I wanted the little mermaid to marry the prince and live happily ever after. But when the Disney version was released, I still wasn’t happy with the ending. I realize now that I wanted to read about a different kind of mermaid, one who could achieve a happy and successful life, with or without the prince. And maybe one who wasn’t quite so young or so beautiful.

Keeping this vision of an older and wiser mermaid firmly in mind, I wrote Between Land and Sea, the first book of the Mediterranean trilogy.

Isabella of the Mediterranean kingdom gives up her tail for an international banker. In a fit of rage, her grandmother chops off Isabella’s hair and ages her beyond recognition. The horrified banker abandons her on the fog-drenched shores of southwest England, leaving her to face a difficult human journey as a plain and practically destitute fifty-three-year-old woman.

With the help of a magic tablet and online mermaid support, Isabella embraces her new body and heals her bruised heart. Along the way, she encounters a cast of unforgettable characters, among them former mermaids, supportive and not-so-supportive women, deserving and undeserving men, and several New Agers.

The Evolution of the Modern Male and Female - a kindle short ebook by Richard Castagner

The purpose of this book is to bring the male and female back together. For years we have been drifting further and further apart, at great cost to society. Men and women have lost respect for one another and struggle to communicate. Marriage and family life, the bedrock of society, are disintegrating. Children are not getting proper emotional support and love. Today’s world is complicated and stressful, and there is strife between the sexes as a result. Unless we can successfully adapt to one another despite sociological changes, our species as we know it is in danger of becoming extinct. My hope is that men and women awaken to what we are losing and what needs to be done. For the mutual benefit of both sexes, we should fight to keep what worked in the past while adapting to the changes that have occurred.

I have written this book for all age groups. Please try to read it with an open mind and with all your buttons turned off. You may turn your buttons back on, if you desire, after the read.

This book is directly addressing a minority of the females (5%)[1] in the US, the ultra left liberal feminist, and most males who sadly assume that all of the problems we are having in the male and female relationship today are just going to go away. A growing number of US females (15%)[2] are conservative feminists who have many of the same goals that the American male wants right now. The majority of the females (80%)[3] in the US, do not consider themselves feminists but have been well indoctrinated by feminist principles over the last 50 years.

I do not include all women in this conversation; I know some wonderful, confident females who are respectful and have somehow avoided feminist indoctrination.

My hope is that the younger generation reads this book. They have the time to make the necessary changes in their lives that will increase their happiness as adults. It is our responsibility as adults to pass on these ideas to the younger generation as they grow up.

The issues in this book are very relevant to mainly the modern Democratic societies, especially the US, Canada and Europe. Other countries in the world are in different stages of ramping up to the US situation. I now live in Mexico and I already see the changes starting to happen down here. The society in Mexico is at 1960s US and changes in the male / female relationship area are needed. The problem coming, based on the US women’s movement, is how to stop making changes once the mission has been accomplished? My hope is that on an international level, other countries, including Mexico, see what has gone wrong in the women’s movement, especially in the US and learn from it.

We are living longer lives now, so being happy has never been more important. Men and women can still have it all if we simply decide to.

The Truth which was Kept from Us - non-fiction by Klaus E. Berger

I maintain that 90% of Jesus' teachings have been kept secret. Most of his teachings are to be found in this book, which goes on to tell of wisdom, truth, beauty and ancient mysteries in the context of world religions and folk tales about extraterrestrial visits to earth.
   The one and only truth, which is the doctrine of love, will be conveyed in a down-to-earth, non-religious style. You will be able to read many hidden writings containing Jesus' teachings, including the ancient gospel. The ancient gospel is the principal gospel, the complete and original gospel, containing far more than the four gospels of the Bible.
   The whole of the so-called Christian world is founded on a bigoted and distorted version of all that was originally wondrous and genuine. It is shocking that this could have happened. What do people today know of the laws of love? The teachings of reincarnation? Genuine and profound wisdom? This is no small and trivial matter that the churches are withholding - but the most essential and major part of the original teachings! The churches have suppressed the ancient gospel, as well as a wealth of other writings. The discovery of this original ancient gospel, 107 years ago, should have caused a sensation, the like of which the world has never seen before. But the churches have done nothing whatsoever! In fact, they have concealed the very spirit itself. It is these things, first and foremost; the spirit and the light of love, with which my book deals.
   Many people will be both delighted and dismayed when they discover the scope and nature of the treasures of divine wisdom which have been kept from them.
   What was once the unimpeachable doctrine of love, has been transformed, the world over, into religious ceremony and superstition.

One Night at the Jacaranda will be 0.99 pounds or $1.50 during November 21, 22 and 23!

One man dying of cancer. One struggling journalist. A group of single Londoners. One night that changes everything.

This roller-coaster ride of a story begins the evening a motley group of 30-somethings, fuelled by hope and booze, meet at a speed-dating event.  Cancer-stricken Sanjay, lawyer Laure, stressed doctor Geoff, harassed mother-of-four Karen and traumatized ex-con Dan all face each other across the Jacaranda’s gleaming tables in their quest for someone special.  Or just mind-blowing sex.

Undercover journalist Harriet is after a by-line, not a boyfriend.  She’s a struggling freelance in debt to her live-in lover.  Yet soon she unexpectedly has to choose between the comfortable life she knows and a bumpy road that could lead to happiness.

All six of the colourful characters are pretending to be something they’re not.  That’s the way, they believe, to make themselves more attractive.  But along the dating journey, via death, divorce and dark secrets, each learns you can only find a soul-mate when you start being yourself.

There’s a heart-breaking medical strand and a wealth of vivid detail that reflect the author’s experience as a doctor.  The unpredictable ending comes after laughter, tears and every emotion in between.

Over 50 excellent Amazon reviews (US and UK). From reviews:

“Pacy, witty and well observed.”

“This doctor has a very racy bedside manner.....As for the raunchier parts of the book - and there are many - well, put it this way, cleaning the bath will never be the same again!”

“Sexy, quick-witted, eye-opening and heart-warming tale… I recommend it to anyone looking for a polished, well-crafted contemporary romance.”

“Fast-paced, witty and fantastically saucy... Can't wait for the next one.”

“Searingly honest and full of convincing characters, this is a pick me up book that makes you feel better about life.”

“A wonderfully gritty story... with an appropriate and satisfactory conclusion.”

“Great writing, perfectly constructed chapters, and a real mixture of characters, make this a damn good book.”

“My initial impression was that it would be a light and frothy chick-lit type of romance but I couldn't have been more wrong. What I got was a warm-hearted and compassionate story about the vagaries of modern life, written in a lively and fun style. Undoubtedly, the writer has a real skill with words.  Her ability to tell a good story really shines through.”

“Racy, realistic and one to relish.  Really wonderful debut novel.  She writes with understanding, empathy and compassion.”

“Sassy and classy in equal measures.”

“At times dark, at times laugh-out-loud funny, this snapshot of dating in London stays with you long after the final page.”

“There are some dark and difficult issues, but they are dealt with in a sympathetic and readable way.  An absolute joy.”

Harvest Sky - kindle ebook by Hunter McEgan

Eleven-year-old Tiernan would have spent most of his time wondering what the outside world was like if he didn’t spend that time just trying to survive.  He and his mother, Glenna, just happen to live in one of the most dangerous places of the island of Prywonder.  One day, Tiernan finds his daily routine interrupted by the unexpected arrival of his friend Zandra.

Zandra was never known to be one to do anything the traditional way, but this never stopped her from getting the job done.  She was also never one to make excuses whenever she would be forced to improvise (as she put it).  She was happy just as long as the goal was met and there wasn’t any damage (unless, of course, said damage had been one of the goals to begin with).
After Glenna is forced to leave to answer a plea for help, Zandra is left to watch over Tiernan.  It isn’t long before plans fall apart and Tiernan finds himself joining Zandra on a mission that will lead them across Prywonder.  Nothing seems to go according to plan (something Zandra is unfortunately quite used to), and Tiernan begins to wonder if anyone ever truly knew what the mission involved.  Tiernan struggles to discover what the truth is while hoping that the knowledge won’t get anyone killed.

The Case of the Pig in the Evening Suit - kindle ebook by RR Gall

In 2004, a dead pig was pulled out of a storm drain in Sydney, Australia. It was wearing an evening suit. Unsurprisingly, its picture made the front page of the local newspaper. That was the start.

Two years later another clothed pig is found wedged a storm drain in the sleepy Scottish town of Dumfries, Jin Johnstone cannot hold his curiosity at bay. He decides to investigate. It is a bad decision: it puts his life in danger.

Jin is not really a detective: it’s just that people of the town come to him with their problems. Sometimes he charges for his services. It depends.

Already undertaking the task of finding a missing son, Jin’s search through the town, with its many colourful characters, brings him into contact with a beautiful and mysterious woman; a woman who fires up unprecedented and unwelcome desires in him.
Then another body is found.

Told in the first person, The Case of the Pig in the Evening Suit is a high-paced, multi-layered, quirky, and, at times, humorous murder/mystery, dripping with a distinct sense of place. Its many twists and turns evolving quickly into a thrillingly tense and topical story.
It is the first part of the Dumfries Detective trilogy.

Crushed - Kindle ebook by Willow Monroe

Harper fought hard for her little brother, but now he's gone and she's trying to claw her way back to normal. She needs a hero.

Jest is no hero, but there's something about Harper that is making him sit up and take notice. Can he let go of his own past long enough to help her escape hers?

From the author:

I loved writing about Harper and Jest. Before I started writing her story, Harper was quite the little smart-a** and angry at the world. Then, as I kept exploring her character, I realized that she was drowning in pain (that’s a theme in this story, BTW) and just needed someone to love her back to wholeness.

Enter Jest – the cocky, sexy new guy in town. He was supposed to be an infuriating jerk, but as I let him take the lead I discovered that he had a painful past of his own and he really, really wants to get past that and be Harper’s hero.

He is not the type to believe it can happen more than once. His obsession is his father's old boat and that is sufficient. When Denna comes to work on his boat with him, she is everything he does not need or want. He is shut down, she is cold and aloof. Yet, life has other plans and no one could have predicted what actually unfolded.

Special Attraction - Kindle eBook by M.L. Ryan

“Do you enjoy urban fantasy with a sci-fi twist that will make you snort Pepsi out of your nose if you take a drink at the wrong moment?  Then this book is for you.”  -Thianna D.

”Strap in for the wild ride across dimensions filled with great one-liners, adventure, and enough twists to cause whiplash! Never has a heroine who seems so unlikely to save the world stepped to the challenge with such flair.

Think about it: a being from another dimension gets trapped in your Kindle, then makes the leap from there to your mind. I don’t know about you, but I currently own several Kindles, and I’m thinking M. L. Ryan may know something we don’t!”   -Dii

”Special Attraction was hold-onto-your-seat full of action and humor. Oh, and romance. Do NOT forget the romance. Alex (pause for heavy sigh) is an absolute dream and Hailey's life has not been the same since she met him and Sebastian. And, she wouldn't have it any other way.

Even though this is the third book in the series, it can easily be read on its own. Ms. Ryan gives just enough details of what happened previously that you don't feel lost. I'm sure, though, that reading it in conjunction with the other books could only make things better. I especially would like to read how Hailey and Alex (pause for heavy sigh) got together.

It was a quick read... I read it in one sitting, which these days is not easy for me, just because of how busy I am, but once I started it, I could not put it down. And there were several laugh out loud moments. Ms. Ryan has created some wonderfully quirky characters that I just fell in love with...and Alex (pause for heavy sigh), let's just say he's my new book boyfriend.”  - It’s Raining Books

Home - Kindle ebook by Donovin Freeman

Home is based on a true story. My grandfather was a numbers runner for the notorious gangster Bumpy Johnson. Bumpy's life story was made into the movie "Hoodlum" starring Laurence Fishburne, Vanessa Williams, Tim Roth and Andy Garcia.

Home is a story about the collateral damage that can be done by the drug trade. Fortunately, my mother and her siblings were rescued from that environment and have lived very good decent lives despite very rough beginnings. It's a story that will make you laugh, cry, fill with rage, and cheer at the top of your lungs.

Book No. 3 "The Case of the Haunted School House" - release date October 2014
Book No. 4 "Butch Has Gone Missing!" release date December 2014


The Adventures of Sheriff Williker was inspired by the author's childhood memories growing up in a small lake community in northwest Iowa. Kim named the sheriff after a saying her mom often said, ‘Gee whiz willikers!’

Kim's grandparents were the picture perfect ‘Norman Rockwell’ grandpa and grandma. Her grandpa was a U.S. Marshal, and her grandma was the town’s ‘doctor’.  Kim would sit and listen in amazement at the stories they told her about the early days--'LONG before there were automobiles--our mode of transportation was a horse and buggy...a kerosene lamp lit our way.' Her grandma would make house calls to deliver babies, many times traveling in freezing temperatures through snowdrifts. When Kim was sick, her grandma would always make her feel better by giving Kim one of her homemade remedies--warm lemon juice, honey--and lots of love!

Kim's grandma loved to knit, crochet, and make quilts. She was also the cook at the local high school in Superior, Iowa.

Her grandparents were in a band and often played at ‘barn parties’ on the weekends. Her grandpa played the banjo and harmonica. Her grandma played the piano and sang.

When Kim's grandparents retired, they spent their time gardening. They LOVED to spend time in their garden and grew everything from flowers, to raspberry bushes, to vegetables, to rhubarb--and even popcorn!

Her grandpa also LOVED to fish. His casual clothes were blue jean overalls and a BIG baseball cap. He carried a pitchfork with him when he worked in the garden.

Her grandma had white, long hair, rolled up and pinned to the back of her head in a bun. She wore flowered printed dresses, an apron, and stockings--rolled down to her ankles. If her grandma wasn't in the garden, you could find her in the kitchen. She was always baking pies or canning with the fresh fruits or vegetables they gathered from their garden. The canned preserves lined the shelves in their storm cellar.

Kim's uncle was the town’s blacksmith. His wife was the editor of the local newspaper. They also had a large garden and huge apple orchard. You could always count on Kim's aunt serving her guests a slice of freshly baked apple pie.

Kim's other uncle was retired from the Navy and LOVED to fish. Come rain, wind, sleet or snow, you could find him out on the lake fishing, even ice fishing!

Kim's grandparents had one daughter--Kim's mother--who was the youngest of four siblings. She was just as loving, caring, and hard working as her grandparents. Kim's mom worked for the local newspaper office. In her spare time, she loved to garden. You could often find her in the kitchen with grandma baking or canning.

On the weekends, all of Kim's family would get together for Sunday dinner at each other’s houses, or often times gathered at one of the lakes for picnics and games. Everyone brought tons of food--homemade salads and desserts made with fresh vegetables and fruit from their very own garden.

Chimera - kindle ebook by David Kaine

I have a Ph.D. in the history of religion - and until now I never did anything with it. I ended up working in the tech sector, but I have all this arcane knowledge floating around in my head. Every now and then I would completely overwhelm a conversation partner who happened to ask me about religion or mythology, but otherwise I didn't find much of a use for the stuff I learned in school. Then one day I was reading a Dan Brown novel, and something clicked: I realized that the interesting stuff that Brown uses to spice up his thrillers is very much like what I learned all those years ago. And so I thought to myself: "I should try to write something like that, and see if people like it."

Most likely my dissertation supervisor would be spinning in her grave if she wasn't still alive, but I'm having fun and so far my readers seem to be having fun, too. As long as people like my books, I'll keep writing them.

THE ESSENE CONSPIRACY - Kindle eBook by S. Eric Wachtel

Kindle Countdown Deal - March 24-30,2014


*****Definite intrigue, March 20, 2014 By Nancy S. Wagner

This review is from: THE ESSENE CONSPIRACY (Kindle Edition)

This book is written in third person, going from person to person. I often wondered how I was going to keep everybody straight, but Wachtel kept it straight for me. Not as clearly scripted was figuring out who the bad guys and who the good guys were in the intrigue. Some of the plot reminded me of a previous book by a different author that resulted in many readers believing the book was not fiction, but truth. 5 stars for the author`s ability to weave a similar tale and draw the reader into the story so thoroughly. But I would not recommend the book for all readers. I recommend this to adult readers only that simply want to enjoy a well written fiction book

Discovering a barely legible name scribbled on a blood-stained business card in the shirt pocket of an Israeli minister murdered in Jerusalem, the Director of Israeli Intelligence calls upon an old  friend and colleague, security consultant Harry McClure,  to investigate a possible American connection to the brutal crime.

Follow McClure  as he uncovers a complex  Wall Street money-laundering scheme linked to a clandestine Messianic Brotherhood’s plot to reclaim Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.  A suspenseful historical thriller that will keep you guessing.

Recovery of a Colony Ship - kindle book by John Thornton

Recovery of a Colony Ship by John Thornton will be free on March 31, and April 1, 2014.  It is the first book in a ten book series, The Colony Ship Eschaton.

Here are some reviews of the books in this series:

This review is from: Destination of the Colony Ship (Colony Ship Eschaton #10) (Kindle Edition)

“Not so much a good book but the final chapter of a really great book. It held my attention from the start of the first book to the end. What can john Thornton do for an encore?”-- Barry Cullum

I just recently discovered the Colony Ship Eschaton series recently and have enjoyed it immensely. It was fun trying to visualize and then guess what animals the characters were describing.

I have to be honest and say that there were some things that I found annoying, like constantly saying "Habitat One: Coastal Plains" et al...we got it, there are eight habitats; the author could have shortened the Habitats to just their names after the first book. I didn't like how 'superior' and 'condescending' many of the Domer characters were towards the people on the ship; including Jamie and Michael. While I understand that there are people like that in the real world, in the literary would, we want our 'good guys' to be good.

But my personal issues aside, I highly recommend going ahead and downloading all the books.”  --The Gecko

“With sci-fi tales I look for new and unusual plot lines and exciting ways to solve futuristic problems. This story was good at providing those things, but it did leave some questions unanswered. The death and the un-death of the first person they meet on the colony ship.”—An Amazon Customer

“Do you remember the juvenile novels of Robert A Heinlein? Do you remember how easy it was to get lost in them? That is what John Thorton's Recovery of a Colony Ship reminds me of. It's just a good fun yarn! Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that he is in the same category as RAH but who knows, RAH wasn't the Grand Master in his early works either. What I'm saying if you want read a book, and have reality suspended for awhile, then this is it.”—George12p

Coral Hare: Atomic Agent - Kindle eBook by Clive Lee

Kindle Countdown Deals Promotion: 03/24/2014-03/30/2014

Amazon Kindle URL:

An intrepid teenage OSS agent goes behind enemy lines to stop the Japanese atomic bomb project during World War II. Inspired by actual historical events.

Mina was once your average sweet-yet-sassy 1940s teenager. She watched Saturday afternoon serials, slurped cherry Cokes, and delighted in Frank Sinatra and big band swing.

Then she watched her father die trying to save a U.S. Navy sailor from the burning wreckage of Pearl Harbor, strafed by a swooping Zero fighter plane.

And oh yeah –- Mina is Japanese American.

Fighting racial prejudice, Mina joins the OSS (the precursor to the modern-day CIA) to avenge her father, and this Hawaiian-born schoolgirl becomes embroiled in a war she never thought she would be part of. Her life becomes a whirlwind odyssey of redemption, loss –- and vindication. Codenamed "Coral Hare," this undercover doe-eyed, gun-toting firebrand is Uncle's Sam's secret weapon against the Empire of Japan.

But the Empire of Japan has an ace up its sleeve -- the development of a devastating new weapon that will usher in a new era -- the atomic bomb.

Armed only with her wits and a handful of real-life gadgets, Mina must venture alone behind enemy lines to stop the Empire of the Rising Sun from extending its rays across the face of the globe. With details woven together from actual historical events surrounding Japan's World War II atomic weapons projects, the journey follows this pint-sized Hawaiian princess from the streets of Tokyo, to the rustic outback of Korea, to the malaria-infested jungles of the Pacific in her mission to prevent atomic annihilation.
Seamlessly blending poignant moments of heartache with blast-from-the-past, high-octane derring-do, Coral Hare is an elegantly woven tale of perseverance and courage that everyone from our Greatest Generation to Millennials can savor.

Conspiracy: Rick O'Shea Adventure#1 by John Rayburn

First of a series of three - check out the others, Duplicity and Intrigue!

Meet a different kind of detective, one who is a “seeker” and “finder” of things that have been lost, stolen or hidden. He collects lucrative finder’s fees, either from a client or from whatever is found.

A seemingly innocuous livelihood has its share of dangerous situations and harrowing experiences. There are hazardous encounters with hijackers, kidnappers, yacht thieves and drug dealers. An engaging team of O’Shea, lovely aerospace expert Helga Lange, and boyhood chum Luther (call me Lute) Martin, put together exciting methods of combating perilous encounters. Real places and things are woven into the story line in a fictional manner, giving an aura of reality. The author thoroughly enjoys the research necessary to make this happen.

Romance develops between Rick and Helga, although neither one seems quite ready to fully commit to a commitment.

Locales range from prehistoric caves at Lascaux, France to a magnificent castle in the Loire Valley with involved searches for art treasures hidden from Nazi forces in World War II, before moving on to Colorado’s San Juan Mountains and into Mexico and Guatemala for searches of their own. This is one of a series of three about the intrepid trio and the other tales of remarkable adventure will be listed here soon. In addition, there are nine other Kindle e-books by John Rayburn.

The Triptych Force: I AM - Kindle eBook by Michelle Carbotte

Amazon Link

Free April 6, 2014 to April 10 2014.

As far back as I can remember, I have always been a seeker of Spiritual Knowledge. In my twenties I prayed for wisdom and understanding and this deep desire for knowledge has lead me to write this eTrilogy (3 part eBook series) called, The Triptych Force (pronounced Trip-tic) so that I may share with others what I have learned.

The connection I had with the spirit world was very strong as a child. I carried with me a deep “knowing” that there was more to my life than this earthly reality. My seeking began in Christianity because that is the environment I was raised in but after I had read the Bible I widened my search to include Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Kabbalah. I read many ancient documents like the Nag Hammadi Texts, Dead Sea Scrolls, the Bhagavad Gita and the Kebra Nagast, just to name a few. What came about because of my search was a rich, deep and profound understanding of God our Creator, His reason for creation and humanities’ part to play. God is a Creator with purpose; He does everything for a reason. He has a vision of His own that He desires to see fulfilled, and mankind is at the center of it. God is also not hidden and secretive like most of us think. Yes, in a lot of ways, He is beyond human comprehension but God, Our Father, desires to be known and has given us everything we need to have a rich and personal relationship with Him. Whether you are a person of deep faith or someone just beginning their spiritual journey, The Triptych Force has something to offer everyone. Anyone who seeks God will find Him and the deeper you seek the deeper you will uncover the power and love of God. Included in The Triptych Force: I AM are the 6 Triptych Force Laws, 5 Natures of God, 5 attributes of love, 8 paths of choice and the unstoppable power of I AM. The time period we are living right now is special. It is special because you are here. Every life has purpose. Come discover what your true purpose is. It is not about what you can do, it is about what God is able to do through you. When we live our true purpose we become more than our own imaginations can even visualize. True happiness comes not through wealth but through fulfilling our destinies. We are not helpless puppets. God is a supernatural All-powerful being and that same supernatural power is in us as well. It is time to learn more about our true power and to begin using it to change our lives and the lives of those around us. Embrace your power and purpose and become the person you were created to be. God Bless.

Undressing the N-word - Socialogy issues by H. Lewis Smith

Undressing the N-word examines how is it that those who were once victimized by a word now embraces it as a term of endearment, offering explanations as to why such demeanor is unhealthy not only for the Black
community but our nation in general.

How did the Black African American community come about seeing and using the n-word as a term of endearment?  Just what is the true significance of their use of the word n**ga?  The answers to these questions and much more are revealed offering insight into how it is that the Black African American community is a walking contradiction relative to their use of the N-word adding fuel to misunderstandings, confusion, chaos and disrespect.

To demand respect one must have self-respect, the history of the n-word dictates that it is not an honorable or respectable word, thus not all African Americans embrace the term.  Nonetheless, far too many Black Americans do use the term, bringing disrespect on all Black Americans. This creates tension and misunderstandings, and the matter needs to be resolved, not to just assume it will evaporate into thin air all by itself.

Undressing the N-word tackles the issue offering solutions emphasizing why if the United States of America the greatest country on earth is to make even greater strides in human relations, both Black and White America must be able to respect one another, and to  not allow itself to be held hostage by the n-word.

Keeping that word alive keeps its history alive, thus making everyone uncomfortable. Bury the word and its history is buried right along with it.  This is not to suggest that an attempt is being made to make the word vanish into thin air...that’s impossible.  It's as much a part of American history as the Boston Tea Party, Civil War, slavery, etc.  But it can be made to vanish from everyday speech.

To get this accomplish that word must be undressed and shown for what it is.  It can be tantamount to having an aching tooth pulled, you hate going to the dentist, but once the tooth is pulled the tooth ache goes away. Undressing the N-word exposes the n-word for what it is, why it's not a term of endearment, and why it needs to be buried, banned, eradicated and abolished.

No stone is left unturned, whatever, questions are concerns you may have as a white or black person relative to this issue is addressed and dealt with.

Long Time Dying - kindle ebook by Solomon Carter

The villains in Long Time Dying are more real than you'd expect in thriller fiction.  Especially the Somalis. Those boys are real, they are dangerous and cause the kind of havoc on show in the novel. The other villains are loosely based on real people too. It turns out the world is more sinister than it seems. But that's just the bad news. The good news is an amazing place just like 'The Refuge' exists in Southend, the town where protagonists Dan and Eva live and fight.. Just google ‘Storehouse Southend’ and you'll find it. This Refuge stands in the middle of the criminal no-man's land the book illustrates, and it is pretty hairy there, but the Refuge is an oasis helping people who are homeless, broke, addicted and even some villains when they are down on their luck. As those villains work all around, good people like Dan, Eva and Jess and the volunteers at the Refuge (Storehouse) are unwilling to let the heroic aspects of humanity fall under the evil which comes with addiction and crime. Now that's good news. The good will out, but not without a fight - as Eva and Dan know all too well.

The Movie/Book Dirty Millions The Clean Way 3-D by Kirk Tillery

The Movie/Book Dirty Millions The Clean Way 3-D, was written with more passion and details then the award-winning movies. The Butler starring Oprah Winfrey, D jangle starring Jamie Foxx, Good Deeds starring Tyler Perry, Lincoln, and 12 Years A Slave combine!  If for some reason you have not seen the above mentioned movies, it is a must add to your weekend to do lists. These movies will in no way prepare you for what you are about to read, as they are entertaining and historically educational. We must continue to study the history of this particular group of  African-Americans who were treated in an deplorable un-humane way. These stories will prevail and will continue to be passed down to our great grand kids for generation to come, who will  eventually share them with the world for healing sake . One story comes to mind about my great great-grandfather Earl, who was ordered by the plantation owner Master Gibson, to drown his newly born twin sons. It had been a very cool summer and a extremely cold winter that had destroyed most of the crops on Masters Gibson's plantation. After returning from the market trying to sell what little crops that survived the cold winter, there was little to no profit to feed any new babies.  Master Gibson decided to call a short meeting one cold  winter day at the back of the big house for all of his hired hands and male slave. This is when he ordered them to destroy or kill all non-essential newborn babies, effective immediately . Time had passed quickly when my great-grandfather Earl decided and tried  for the second time, to drown his twin boys after hiding them for months.

You see, they were discovered by another slave and they were still alive some months after the order was given. This  particular slave rush off to tell Master Gibson what he had seen an Earl knew right then and there  he was in big trouble. Over the past few  months Earl just couldn't  drown his baby boys as his heart was broken with eyes full of tears. On this day Earl knew he had been caught, as he chipped away at the thin layer of ice that formed over the cold water in the barrel at the rear of  the slave quarters shack, he considered suicide. He said a prayer and slowly dipped the boys into the freezing water, holding onto them  to keep them from sinking to the bottom. When he heard them scream as he had never heard babies scream before, he almost lost his mind. It was just too much for Earl to bear as he started running like a crazy man who had just lost his mind. Holding the babies tight to his chess screaming at the top of his voice, oh God no over and over again, he ran off into the woods!. My great great-grandfather died that day at the hands of a house slave, who was order to use the masters special  whip that was embedded  with cutting glass. He was whipped to death in less than an hour for the crime  of loving his babies too!  The babies were ..........

Fightin' the Boogeyman - kindle ebook by Larry Bruce Barnes

Fightin' the Boogeyman came about because after coming home from the Air Force and starting college I heard stories. During the time between classes the Vets and non-vets hung out in separate groups.  Being older, the Vets had different interest. Afte classes, and sometimes between classes, we'd share beers or joints and war stories. Since my war stories weren't about actual war . . . I listened.  "You want to know how I lost my foot? Let me tell you."  This scar?  It's nothing, you should see the one on my scrotum." "Was I scared?  Too scared to shit my pants."

These stories followed me around until Gwain Redoubt came along and saddled up those stories on his shoulders.

Jan's Families by Barb McIntyre

This book is about how a woman puts her life back together after the death of her husband, and the loss of her beauty salon. The main theme is about new life and change. It is a book about relationships; families and friends. Jan's relationship with her sister is not a good one, but her relationships with friends help her through bad times. The fact that family has more than one definition led to the title of the book. The cover idea came because the book begins with Jan looking at the lights of the city out of a plane window and thinking that the lights looked like the ashes of the fires her father would set to burn household trash when she was a child.

From the Official Review on the OnlineBookClub by Saoirse200 » 25 May 2013
"I found the character development in this story to be very realistic, the author Barb McIntyre made sure not to forget about the other characters personal development as well as Jan's. I loved Jan's families and I would highly recommend it to women."

The Silent Saga - kindle ebook by David Whelan

Hi, thanks for reading about my book. The Silent Saga is the culmination of years of thinking about science fiction and finally getting around to doing something about it. The aim of the saga is to fuse action and adventure and then mix ideas from numerous films and television shows I have watched.

I am of the belief that most ideas have already been covered so I decided not to fight against the concept of originality and embrace the clichéd. Now, don't get me wrong, the idea is similar to other stories but with new characters and a new setting. The idea of an all powerful enemy silencing the galaxy at the one time I feel is something different.

The purpose of the saga as a whole is to create a book version of a straight-to-dvd film. Those movies that entertain but you wouldn't really say is Oscar material as they are made on a low budget.
I could almost call it a B-Book, maybe that's a new term ha. I hope you enjoy the book and read it for what it is, a fun fusion of action and adventure and a dollop of cliché from sci-fi old and new.
