Real Names With a Culinary Accent - a non-fiction historical/ biographical work by A. Tennessee Nutt

In the course of doing American genealogical studies I stumbled across dozens of fascinating names-- fascinating because they were beautiful or funny or just unusual. Then I found myself wondering who were these people with the names that caught my attention. The next thing I knew I was researching the lives of people named Almond Fudge and Icy Beer and Hartie Bacon. For the most part, they were people who lived in the United States, most of them in the nineteenth century, and came from all walks of life. I came away with an awareness of American history and culture that was never as real in the history books. As an American raised overseas, I found the experience very enlightening. It's a quirky collection because I decided to focus on names related to food and drink and sorted them into categories like a cook book. I could have just as easily gone with another theme, cars for example with people like Otto Mobile, Nice Carr, Carr Chase, etc, but I love food. I found myself trying to imagine recipes in honor of Perfect Crabb, Lemon Lamb, Fancie Fries, Hardy Beets, Olive Stuffing... You get the picture. It would be really interesting to look at recipes from the lifetime of the person for the named dish and bring that to bear on the process. But I haven't gotten further than an experiment with orange flavored barbequed chicken wings for Orange Wing. This is not the usual way biographies are sorted, but it does make for an interesting read.

"More twists than meets the eye" - The Kindle book review

Alien Affairs - Science fiction by Scott Skipper

Alien Affairs is free on KDP Select April 30 thru May 2

The 1947 flying saucer incident at Roswell, New Mexico, was a secret so closely held that even future presidents were denied access to the truth.  The key to that secret fell to the protection of the CIA under the mercurial Allen Dulles who compiled an Alien Affairs team to discover the invaders’ intentions.  They do so by deciphering a reading device recovered from the crash site.  The extremely devout, yet promiscuous Dulles did not like the answer, but the revelation propelled us to the moon to make sure there was not an alien base there with malignant intent.

In his retirement one of the original Alien Affairs team amuses himself by teaching the aliens’ language to his young niece, Carrie Player, but conceals its origin from her.  On his deathbed he reveals the truth and charges her with the minor responsibility of saving humanity.  Twenty years later the CIA has fallen complacent, the threat from space becomes eminent and only Carrie can intervene on behalf of the human race.

Georgia Turnbull is the hard-bitten director of the CIA under a weak and indecisive president.  When Carrie explains the facts of the approaching aliens’ purpose, Turnbull puts her in charge of the newly revived Department of Alien Affairs and together they devise a two-pronged plan to protect the planet.  Since the end of the Space Shuttle program the United States has had no way to send astronauts into space and has to pay the Russians to carry them to the International Space Station, so Turnbull is forced to rely on the private sector to launch weapons capable of  intercepting the alien craft.

Carrie’s Alien Affairs staff realizes that she is the only person on earth who might negotiate for our survival.  Their plan puts Carrie in a very precarious position—a middle-aged divorced CIA linguist becomes the spokesperson for the planet earth and she finds herself involved in an alien affair that no one could have ever predicted.

Golden State Blues - Political satire by Scott Skipper

Can two guys dismantle California’s political quagmire from the bar of an Italian restaurant in the predominately-liberal town of Claremont? Can they survive if they do? The plot they hatch takes everyone, including Madam President, by surprise, and outrages just about everyone in America’s most left-leaning state. However, the results speak for themselves, and while their capital is rising, our heroes find the time to indulge in the newly legalized sport of sniping taggers caught in the act of spraying graffiti. But there is always trouble in paradise and the governor’s past catches up with him in the form of an ultra-sexy young blond with a habit of causing trouble as well as getting into it. Trouble, that is, with the media, the entrenched Democratic legislature and the radical Islamists at the mosque down the street. It would have been only a minor indiscretion if the tabloids hadn’t been taking videos with a drone. Despite the scandal, with the California National Guard as his personal army, the chimerical governor runs roughshod over the deep-seated dilemmas that perennially plague the Golden State. With the wave of his hand he eliminates the welfare state, the homeless problem, illegal immigration, broken schools, high-speed pursuits, traffic gridlock and the budget crisis. Come see how he does it.

Airion, Book 1 of Carrie: A Magickal Series by L.M. Halls

Hi there! I ordered the Gold Membership for Airion and I write under the name L. M. Halls.

Have you ever felt like you had a mission in life, that feeling in your gut that your meant to do something? Carrie did. She was already on the outside of life as an empath, a psychic and a practicing witch. This drive inside her to feel like she made a difference in the world pulls her into something she could never imagine.

This fantasy walks the line of magical realism by placing the supernatural in the contemporary life of a modern witch. Astral projection and battles with demons over ley lines become the norm from Carrie as she embraces her mission and confronts the issues of what is the real nature of right and wrong.

Join Carrie as she fights for more than her life after meeting her soul mate and struggles to achieve her spiritual mission in the realities of the modern world.

See You Later, Jeffrey by Fran Caffey Sandin

Following the sudden and untimely death of her 17 month-old son, Jeffrey, author Fran Caffey Sandin struggled to find answers to nagging questions such as:  Is God punishing me?  Will I ever get over this devastating event in my life? How can I conquer fear? Does God really answer prayer? Am I becoming bitter? Could God possibly use this experience for good? In desperation she searched and found some answers that she shares with readers of this book.

Many have experienced deep agony, such as the death of a family member or loved one, but seldom has the overwhelming peace from God and hope to rebuild the future been so profoundly expressed. Fran explores the nature of God’s healing grace and peace, showing how He turned her greatest loss into unimaginable good in her life and in the lives of others.

Touching The Clouds: true stories to strengthen your faith by Fran Caffey Sandin

When life’s difficult situations leave you hanging by your emotional and spiritual fingernails, it’s hard to believe you’re not alone. Powerful and touching stories of women who have lived out their faith highlight the panorama of God’s mercy, grace, provision, and peace.

Author Fran Caffey Sandin wrote her own heart-rending stories. Then she interviewed fifteen admirable women who had exercised faith through their trials. Topics included suicide, homosexuality and AIDS, death of a child, husband’s job loss, handicapped child, adultery, chronic illness, eating disorders, death of a husband, and more.

With their permission, Fran wrote the women’s true stories in first person and followed each with a “Faithlifter” examining the aspect of faith demonstrated in the story. The section “In Her Shoes” connects the reader more intimately with the struggle, “In His Word” gives Biblical affirmation, and “In Your Life” provides practical suggestions for the reader to apply to his own life. These qualities include love, joy, courage, forgiveness, grace, obedience, trust, patience, mercy, commitment, and others. Authentic examples will challenge readers to embrace the healing power of God’s Word and keep touching the clouds.

The Libertarian - an anarcho-capitalist love story by Jaroslav Tucek

Available from Amazon for free until 31st May.

This is a love story of two characters with very different ideas about human society and the roles they should play in it - an anarcho-capitalist tale of civil disobedience, tax evasion, justice, love and one man's love of justice.

Based on the great strike motive of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, Luca Segreti has "gone Galt" and refuses to produce in a world where he is treated like a slave. Struggling with the hopeless loneliness of his self-imposed exile, he finds an unlikely chance of deliverance in the person of a charming woman - who turns out to be a talented engineer but, to Luca's dismay, happily lends her immense ability to support, and to produce for, the kind of world he has abandoned...

The text - part novella, part Platonic dialogue - explores themes of Rand's Objectivism, as well as several more broadly considered libertarian topics, in both political and interpersonal relationships.

Willows: The Creole - A historical fiction by Cyndie Shaffstall

Brand new release. On sale for .99 through 30 June. Regularly $3.17

In the decades before the Civil War, Louisiana was the most advanced in the rights of people of color—Africans and Indians—and women, including the right to vote. Marriage between races was legal, and mulatto, quarteronne, and octoroon children were recognized by their white fathers and often became business and landowners through gifts or the wills of patriarchs.

The Civil War brought change—any black lineage became cause for discrimination—and many blacks were relegated to occupations not unlike those of their ancestors. The women’s rights movement lost momentum as well, and it was only through the sheer will of women such as Stanton and Anthony, that organizations were formed and the voices of women would come to be heard.

The Arceneauxs have a long history of falling victim to circumstance, but heir to the family home, one woman is determined the legacy needs to end. An abandoned house, a fractured family, and an oppressed people, she leaves New York for New Orleans to confront change head on.

Embroiled in the fleecing of New York’s bridge funds, she seeks out a new life in New Orleans, but in her pursuit, realizes change is not something needed only for her, but for many. The plantation, still worked by the descendants of the slaves who built it, becomes the anchor for her efforts.

In a story spanning five generations, author Cyndie Shaffstall, takes you on a journey through abolition and suffrage. A Voodoo priestess, a French artist, the first woman presidential candidate, and the world’s fair shed light on issues and provide opportunities for change.

Riley Blake, author of the #1 bestselling Kindle Worlds short story Bayou Babes, returns with a brand new novella--Hiding in the Bayou, a Miss Fortune series novella.

Short Preview:

From petty theft to murder mysteries, Gertie and Ida Belle loved solving crimes, but I wasn’t entirely confident about their level of expertise. Sure they possessed covert military training in clandestine operations which suggested they were intelligent and knowledgeable, but they were also older than the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Ida Belle rose to her feet, appearing stronger by the second. She went to her pantry and retrieved a few bottles of ‘cough’ syrup. She kept one for herself and placed the other two on the table. “Help yourselves.”
“Look at you,” I said, opting to stick with coffee. “Moonshine and a murder to solve and what do you do? Shelve your illness for a more convenient time.”
“I’ll rest when I’m dead. This town needs leadership right now,” Ida Belle said, swinging her gaze at Gertie. “You’re positive Carter was arrested?”
Gertie nodded so rapidly her glasses slid down the bridge of her nose. Pushing them up again, she said, “You know how this town works. If there isn’t a suspect, they arrest the one who was standing closest to the victim. If Carter hadn’t been there, the town would’ve lynched poor little Peanut for sure.”
I wasn’t ready to preface Peanut’s name with ‘poor little’ just yet. She’d been the one to drag her domestic disagreement straight into the streets of Sinful. Plus, my mind had already been churning with ideas. I didn’t know designer labels or high priced fashions but since moving to Sinful, I’d spent some time with Walter at the General Store.
Walter had recently started stocking a few pricey items—Gator Hoppers which were cutoff boots, Bayou Britches which were cutoff shorts, and Fishnets which were… well, I wasn’t entirely sure what they were supposed to be but Peanut had worn hers as a double-layered shirt. Trashy attire didn’t come cheap…..

For the mortals who log in to help him, the prize is freedom from the aliens who want to control humanity's development to further their own power. For Aes himself, the reward for success is his own apotheosis -- the right to dwell with the superbeings of Olympus.

His only chance is the help of Darla Kaplan and her gamer friends. In this struggle for the freedom of mankind, the most powerful weapon of all may be the love of a woman for a man who is only a ghost in the machine.

The plot twists and the list of suspects constantly changes, as two sides of the town collide only to be drawn together in a unique way with Jake right smack in the middle. The killer is conscienceless, his boss is ruthless and the police are no help . . . until!
Readers need to be prepared to search their soul, have their heart tugged upon, and smile after meeting some new fictional friends.

When we were young we were taught that reading is fundamental. As adults I believe reading should be fun. I've tried to keep the pace brisk, the plot developing with a twist here and there, and the characters . . . well, being characters.

The Complete Adventures of SHELBY F. SQUIRREL and Friends - Kids 3-11 - by Eleanor Lawrie

SHELBY F. SQUIRREL is very upset to be told that the F. initial in his name stands for FLYING!! He is positive he'll never be able to do that!

Off we tear into his first adventure, which ends with a dramatic leap off an upper floor balcony in a high-rise, and the miracle that he CAN FLY!

After that there is no stopping SHELBY, the lovable, naughty, ever-curious flying squirrel child. Children and even adults will discover facts about Flying Squirrels while enjoying these rollicking tales, which have been described as 'having a certain timeless quality' about them.

This is NOT a picture book, but children as young as 3 and 4 love to listen. The writing is NOT childish but is entirely readable by children from age 7 to 11, depending on individual levels.

There ARE, however, excellent captioned photographs throughout, depicting a character or subject from the stories they preface.

The many subjects of childhood growing pains ARE NOT CENTRAL to these stories, but appear subtly because of situations with which SHELBY is confronted, and subsequently manages to survive. Both his own ingenuity and the help of friends serve to bring about happy endings.

Each story is approximately 1000 words, complete on its own with total closure and reader satisfaction. At the same time, we do follow SHELBY'S progress through 2 years, while he has every imaginable kind of adventure and learns gradually that he is actually growing up.

These stories are classic examples of excellent additions to school classrooms and libraries, and delightful repeated reading in any home where there is a child.

The Ruby Brooch - Time Travel Romance by Katherine Lowry Logan

Kindle Countdown Deal – May 20-26, 2015

Audiobook Available

One of my favorite writing experiences happened a few years ago during the Christmas holidays. I was working on the stampede scene in THE RUBY BROOCH, and I needed gun information, so I went to a local gun store. My first visit ever! The store was crowded with holiday shoppers. I stood at the door not knowing what to do. The cashier asked if he could help me. I said, "I need a gun that will kill as many cows as possible in the shortest amount of time." The store went completely silent. The men stared at me. I had a lot of explaining to do. After they discovered I was a writer, everyone wanted to give me advice, and their advice is in the book.

Shortly after finishing the first draft, I took a road trip from Lexington, KY to Portland, OR. I drove the backroads and followed the Oregon Trail historical markers. In many places, the ruts made by wagon wheels are still visible. It was an amazining adventure.

On Mars: Pathfinder - Science-Fiction by Jim Melanson

I have been frustrated by great sci-fi being out of time, and out of place. Set far in the future and in the far reaches of the galaxy, though enjoyable, those books seem out of reach for my methodical imagination. So, I decided to write my own science-fiction. I decided to write something different.

"On Mars: Pathfinder", is the first installment of a space-opera trilogy. It is set nearby (on Mars) and in the near-future (2019). Good character development is something I aspire to every time I sit down to write. I like my characters to have depth, to be relatable. Even the human-alien hybrids are as endearing and believable as the human characters are. I do "geek out" once in a while on the technology of colonizing Mars, or going to Mars, depending on the chapter. I also love to throw in humour, foibles, and haunting ghosts from a person's past.

When I was writing the first installment, I had Nathan Fillion's character "Richard Castle" in mind. His witty mind, his helpless optimism, his "do-the-right-thing" mentality, they all appealed to me. I wanted to install that sense of faith, bravado, and hope in the person that I crafted. I also, much to the shock of some readers, bring up God and faith fairly regularly.

In this first installment of "The Mike Lane Stories, Volume 1", our hero Mike Lane goes to Mars alone. He goes on a proof of concept mission, to show the world that humans can go to Mars and survive there. It's a one-way trip though. The Corporation that sends him is not able to bring him back. In fact, all of their future colony missions will be one way. That's okay, Mike Lane accepts this and doesn't look back.

The day he arrives on Mars, six minutes after arriving, to be exact, his landing craft explodes. Surviving the destruction by being cocooned in the airlock, the hero soon finds out he's not alone on Mars... and he isn't welcome.

Bad aliens, good aliens, beautiful alien-human hybrids, the US Air Force, the North Koreans, the Swiss government... nothing about his adventure is going to be easy. Oh, yeah, the Men in Black show up in the strangest places.

My friend Monique says that I made the intricacies of space flight seem almost understandable. The very first person to buy a copy of the book said that I "rocked the action scenes". I think the best words of praise to be received yet, from someone who posted on my facebook page, was that I had crafted a "plausible" story.

As I write this (May, 2015), I'm almost halfway through the sequel. It's going to blow the socks off of volume 1. If you like science-fiction, action, drama, romance, and good old shoot 'em ups, this book is an excellent choice... even if I do say so myself.

The Evolution of the Modern American Black - a historical non-fiction book by Richard Castagner

My latest book “The Evolution of the Modern American Black” will hopefully bring some closure to a racial problem in America that will not go away.

The study of Black history in the New World has to be seen primarily in the context of American history. It was in the US that slavery and the fight for civil rights had its most profound effect.
The American Civil War in 1865 and the liberation of the slaves, although a triumph, was merely the end of the first chapter in American Black history.
Ahead lay a struggle of epic proportions, as American Blacks fought deep-seated discrimination, violence, and intimidation to assert their political, cultural, and economic identity.
Black prehistory is rich and glorious. When Blacks know more of their prehistory, hopefully, they will love and respect themselves. When Black contributions to world civilization are truthfully revealed, it will be realized that African Blacks, in prehistory, made major contributions to the development of the world.

The prehistory "African" mind is alive and well for a large percentage of Black people today.
My hope is that the remainder of Black people who are still of slavery generated "Negro" mind will decide to rise up and see themselves in a new light. Their new perception of blackness will be based on spiritual and mental enlightenment, rather than on victimization, violence, negativity and racism. They will reclaim their history. They will reappoint themselves to positions of royalty and once again become real kings and queens. In this book, we are beginning the exploration of the American Blacks deeper, uncharted history.... The history that the American Black has lost.

Billions and billions of dollars have been poured into our Black communities with no real positive effect on Black family structure, economy, jobs, poverty, crime or education. A copy of this book provided to every Black family in our Black communities in the US would have a very positive effect at a fraction of the cost. The problem would be addressed from the family level, bottom to top changes, rather than the top to the bottom changes the government is trying unsuccessfully to implement.
