Olga- A Daughter's Tale by Marie Campbell

Genre: Biographical Fiction, Famil Saga

Price: $0.99

Where to Get It: (Kindle)Smashwords (all eBook formats)

Based on a true story, 'Olga - A Daughter's Tale' is a family saga about heritage, culture, identity and belonging with an epic feel - from Jamaica to England amidst World War II at a time when Jamaica was a jewel in the crown of the British Empire.

Written in the form of diary entries and letters, it is about the cruelty, revenge and jealousy inflicted on an innocent young woman and about her moral courage, dignity, resilience and, in particular, love.

It is the story of a remarkable woman who, because of circumstances, made a choice which resulted in her losing contact with her beloved family in Jamaica until nearly half a century later when her daughter discovered her mother's past.

What they're saying about it:

"Fascinating true story, a very touching and moving book about an inspirational personal life, and which has an epic feel about it, from Jamaica to England amidst World War II ! Can't help but thinking that it's screaming "Make a movie of it, make a movie of it!!"--Amazon reviewer

"Olga- A Daughters Tale is the story of one family and their trials and tribulations that they have gone through. Marie-Therese (Browne)Campbell would never had known about her family in Jamaica. A true story that deals with prejudice, deceit, cruelty all heaped on women during the war. When her mother was sick in the hospital if she had died Marie never would have known about the family behind in Jamaica. It's a fast read that is strictly taken from diaries not only from her mother Olga but her great aunt Lucy and her grandmother.

As she relates how the family ended up in Jamaica from England and how her grandmother at that time married a black man which was highly frowned upon. Olga goes to England to attend a dance school and live with her Aunt Martha, whom she soon learns is a liar and an alcoholic. With the advent of the war she is unable to return to Jamaica. When she is raped by an army doctor she did not realize she could get pregnant and that now ends her training to be a nurse and she is forced to leave that position.

As we follow the life of Olga who was not about to give up her child, even though she falls on hard times, she manages to send her to a good Catholic Boarding school for a time. In all this time she never writes home as she feels this would bring shame to her family. In the end her daughter Marie places an ad in the Jamaica Paper and after 50 years Olga finally talks once again to her family and Marie now has a connection.

This is a powerful story of a close knit family that takes the reader through the marriages, births of children and the war and how the family drifts apart as some moved to the United States . Through their family history, their heritage and their culture and how the war and events of that time separated one young lady from her entire family. Did Marie ever get to meet her father, No he also moved to the United States and died in an accident, more than likely never knowing he had a daughter in England.

If you like Biographical genre's then I feel you will enjoy this book. Would make a great movie."--Amazon Reviewer

Apolo Drakuvich by G.W. Jefferies

Type: Novella

Genre: Psychological Thriller, Contemporary Fiction

Price: $0.99

Where to Get It: (Kindle)
Barnes and Noble (Nook)

G.W. Jefferies' Apolo Drakuvich captures the life of a petty criminal whose story is summed up by a quote from his long-time crush: "He may look smart, but he really isn't." The book is a pleasurable read ranging from bizarre and senseless to utterly tragic. Revolving around parasitic journalism, media and government corruption, and a ruthless, conniving judge who milks the citizens out of millions of dollars, Apolo Drakuvich can be described as a compilation of wild and sheer madness--captivating the readers' attention from beginning to end. With its raw descriptions, penetrating dialogue and crisp writing, this book is like no other.

Within all the madness that so epitomizes the life of Apolo, G.W. Jeffries presents a live of regret in epic proportions. Sitting in a jail cell, Apolo reflects, "One thing is for sure, I let it all slip many opportunities lost." Apolo sadly examines the events and decisions of his life, and the paths he took and should have taken. Apolo seeks peace of mind and justice, but flashbacks of his past continuously haunt him; moreover, he seems to be victimized by a corrupt justice system everywhere he goes.

Initially, the book has Apolo eight years removed from his troubled past. The story then flashes back from different stages of Apolo's life, giving the audience the background it needs to understand his character as a whole.

From being called "dork" and bullied by "Cocaine Shane" during his school days, Apolo goes through a number of life changing events. One of the most defining moments of the book, peering deeply into his character, is the scene in which Apolo states, "I wasn't always like this. I'm a hardened, thicker skin, arrogant fool. Like all of us, past events have shaped me into the person I'm today. But I've gone through so much crap. This environment has changed me. The people. The stupidity." As an offender, Apolo discusses pertinent issues of today's society, where it is next to impossible for offenders to live normal lives, despite the desire to do so. Essentially, law enforcement and authorities seem to systematically destroy the offender by placing constraints on the offender such as restrictions on where to live, GPS monitoring, registering as offenders on websites, and more.

Apolo Drakuvich is a must-read, highly recommended thriller that is a microcosm of numerous real-life issues encompassing the wild, the bizarre, and the tragic.

What they're saying about it:

"Apolo. Poor Apolo. The pale skinny guy with the god-like name. You can't help but feel sorry for him. And yet, his problems are of his own design (or dismantling). The author does a great job at portraying a character in a way that makes the reader like Apolo, if not relate to him. The book catapults readers into Apolo's world from the very first sentence and then takes us on a whirlwind journey while we discover the character's reactions to relationships, situations, and life in general. I was captivated by G. W. Jefferies' depiction of the character's personality through Apolo's perspective."--Amazon Reviewer

"My wife recently got this book for her Kindle; and it is fantastic! I quickly got pulled in to the world of Apolo Drakuvich and was mesmerized. It's the kind of book you still keep thinking about even hours after you put it down. Apolo's journey is raw, dark and moving, told in a refreshingly direct way that both entertains and enthralls. I highly recommend this book!"--Amazon Reviewer

Smashwords (all eBook formats)

Note: 10% of the proceeds are going to MUSICARES, the Grammy Award Foundation that helps musicians in distress.

BURNED is the story of a young guitarist as he navigates his way through the music business. Starting in the 80s in a New Wave band, then Rock bands in the 90s, he gets signed to a major label deal and tastes success. But he also tastes a bit more than he bargained for, ending up in multiple rehabs and eventually a mental ward. He then recovers and looks back on a life run wild.

What they're saying about it:

"Although it may be no surprise that the story includes the stereotypical lifestyle excesses ultimately leading to rehab, the level of humor and lust for life Bobby injects throughout makes it impossible put down... Even in the roughest parts.

Unlike similar books by rock superstar legends, this one wasn't written by or for one of those. But DeVito's bio is about being so close to legendary that you can taste it-- sometimes tasting too much.

Having read Clapton's bio, "Up & Down With The Rolling Stones", "Miles" and Aerosmith's "Walk this Way" I can honestly say this book was the fastest paced of all the above. And Bobby's life experiences from a nomadic childhood to touring Italy with Texas Bluesman Sherman Robertson, to studying Aleister Crowley, to living & playing on the Santa Monica Pier, to a mental hospital along with some intense spiritual epiphanies are as interesting and compelling as the best of 'em. And the humor throughout reveals an artist willing to experience a broad spectrum of living despite the costs."--Amazon Reviewer

Set in early 19th century Regency England, and harking back in style to the heyday of Georgette Heyer and Barbara Cartland, A Very Merry Chase is a comedy of manners and errors that boasts empire fashions, handsome highwaymen, villainous rogues, dashing characters, verbal sparring matches and witty repartee mingled with just a hint of mystery, danger and intrigue.

What they're saying about it:

"This was a very fun, quick read. There are some very witty and humorous parts that I really enjoyed. I expected the outcome, but things didn't come about the way I thought they would in the end and it's always nice to have some twists in the plot. It was also very clean except for some brief mild language. 4.5 stars."

"A Very Merry Chase is a classic Regency Romance. If you love Georgette Heyer you'll love this book. It was nearly bed time when I started reading. I told myself I'd just read the first chapter. Ha! By four in the morning I had to force myself to stop and go to bed. After about two hours sleep I got up to see my husband off to work and then after waving him away with bloodshot eyes, I finished the book...."

Genre: Thriller

Price: $0.99

Where to Get It: (Kindle)

TEENAGE VIGILANTE is the new ebook from writer Eric Spudic, screenwriter of the cult horror b-movies AQUANOIDS and CREEPIES. The story deals with 18 year old Trevor Buchinsky, who's recently graduated and come home to find his family murdered. He teams up with his uncle to get revenge.

It turns out that a gang of Vietnam vets are tracking down an arsenal of weapons and are hellbent on destroying anyone in their path. In order to stop this ring of terror, Trevor is gonna need a lot of weapons, a lot of bullets, and a whole lotta body bags.

If you dug films like DEATH WISH, THE EXTERMINATOR, SAVAGE STREETS, THE PUNISHER, or KILL BILL, you'll dig this. Lots of action, guns, explosions, martial arts, and revenge. He traded in his diploma for a 12-gauge!

Part screenplay, part comic book - it's a new breed of storytelling from this rookie author. The book plays out as a tribute to 80's action and exploitation films, made by the likes of AIP Home Video, Cannon Pictures, and Cirio Santiago.

What they're saying about it:

"If you're the type of guy who likes vigilante action movies that pit a remorseful and vengeful individual against the decadent, underworld punks that murdered his family in cold blood, TEENAGE VIGILANTE is for you. This is a very light book, which is not surprising since it was adapted from a script. The writing is tight and one can easily imagine the events unfolding on the big screen word-for-word. This thing kept me wholly entertained for the hour it took me to read this while on the elliptical, and with my wandering attention span, that can be tough."--Amazon Reviewer

When you believe in the impossible, something wonderful can happen. (And okay, so sometimes something weird happens instead. Whatever.)

After reviving the fortunes of her hometown of Possum Dance, Texas – thanks in large part to an ALF wannabe named Bubba spotted roaming the local Piney Woods – Riley Dare has it made. She owns and operates her own store specializing in the weird and wonderful – Alien Autopsy videos, Bigfoot slippers, and plush Bubbas included. She's a respected member of her community. She's even become something of a local media darling. And okay, so the highlight of her love life in recent days was the blind date with a guy who was expecting his date to be a guy. Still, life is good. If somewhat safe and predictable. And maybe a little boring. Or possibly even a lot.

Enter then Bren Reynolds, a former high school nemesis who'd spent the four months of their shared senior year looking down his nose at the local hicks from the sticks, holding illicit keg parties at the mayor's house, and coming up with new and better ways to convince Riley he was a jerk. The bad news then gets worse – he's Riley's blind date for the local Bubba Festival. And not only does he not remember her, he thinks she's weird – and not particularly wonderful.

All, however, is not lost. A near-riot, a close encounter with a Conspiracy Nut, a dancing Tribble, and a few dozen cookies later, the weird proves to be more than a little wonderful.

What they're saying about it:

"Summer is coming along and this is the perfect book to sit by the pool or at the beach and enjoy on your Kindle.

Invisible Tears by Abigail Lawrence

Where to Get It: (Kindle)
Amazon UK
Smashwords (all eBook formats)

This is the story of Abbie's struggle to survive, the grim details of child abuse of the worst kind all told from the perspective of a little girl.

As a teenager Abbie is uncontrollable. A Modette during the 80's revival, she finds a love of scooters, rebellion and gang life on the wild side. Dulling her pain with alcohol, drugs and promiscuity at a very young age, Abbie loses control and becomes well known to the local police. Not one person can get through to her because she has no fear, no self respect, no morals or self worth. With nothing to lose, she throws herself into one battle after another, blood and guts brawling between the skin heads and the mods on the streets of London.

Her family eventually disowns her realizing they are unable to help. Abbie finds herself in the care of the Court until she is abandoned by children's homes and Social Services too. Alone, penniless and pregnant at the age of 16. Haunted by the secrets of her unspeakable past. Will anyone ever see her invisible tears?

What they're saying about it:

"Over 3 million reports of child abuse are made every year in JUST the United States alone. 7.6% of these are sexual abuse claims (approx. 228,000 children.) Almost five children die everyday as a result of child abuse. More than three out of four are under the age of 4.

Harsh statistics right? Horrifying actually.

A few weeks ago I received a review request from an awe inspiring woman named Abigail Lawrence. She wanted me to read her book "Invisible Tears." I hesitantly agreed knowing that the journey I was about to embark on would be heart wrenching and hard to read, but at the same time, completely and undeniably necessary.

At the age of 6 Abbie's mother died, and with no one there to pick up the pieces she was shipped off to whomever would take her. Unfortunately, the loving and caring home she needed was not what she got, instead she was forced to live with a woman that physically and mentally abused her, and then eventually... in seek of fame... handed her over to local pedophiles in the "entertainment" business. After her father (who had been relatively absent up until this point) finally accepted what was happening to his children he whisked them away for a better life, but sometimes people can be to late, sometime the damage has already been done. Keeping, and constantly reliving the secrets of what really happened to her, forced Abbie to grow into a damaged and rebellious teenager, looking for comfort and drugs where ever she could get them. This is the story of Abbie's struggle to survive, her struggle to understand that not everything was her fault, and the struggle to finally find love and acceptance. This is a story of a small girl, who had to learn to dig her own way out of the trenches... just to be able to breathe.

The novel was written in Abbie's dialogue so it is imperative you be prepared for several things.

1. You are going to experience the worse side of life through the eyes of a child for the first several chapters. They are excruciatingly difficult to read (especially if you have small children) and will, at times, make you feel physically ill.

2. The story will eventually move past blatant gruesomeness, however the story as a whole continues, and can be as equally emotional as the first few pages. (so grab some Kleenex.)

3. If you start reading, do not stop. This is not a book you can put down half way through and wish you had never picked it up to begin with. The epilogue is a very VERY important part of the story and if you don't read it you will never get the intended point of the book. (Pace yourself if you have to but don't give up on it.)

This novel is in no way intended for a young audience, or the faint of heart. It is rough, it is damaging, and it is horrifyingly descriptive. The fact that it is based off of someone's' "real life" experiences makes it only that much more difficult to handle, so read at your own risk.

Until tomorrow my fellow Kindle-ites I bid you ado and leave you with something to think about:

Children who have been sexually abused are 2.5 times more likely to abuse alcohol

Children who have been sexually abused are 3.8 times more likely to develop drug addictions

90% of child sexual abuse victims know the perpetrator in some way; 68% are abused by family members

Maybe one day we will open our eyes."--Amazon Reviewer

There is no greater drug than relationships; there is no sweeter death than love.”
Love is horrible. It’s ruthless, messy, mind-altering, and raw. It takes no prisoners. It chews you up and spits you out and leaves you for dead. Love is, you could say, very much like a zombie.

In this haunting short story collection, anything is possible—a dying musician turns to tea for inspiration; a police sergeant struggles with a very unusual victim; a young wife is trapped in a house hiding unimaginable evil....

With Hungry For You, A.M. Harte explores the disturbing and delightful in an anthology that unearths the thin boundary between love and death.

What they're saying about it:

“Ms. Harte writes with such beautiful subtlety that I really needed to pace myself reading Hungry For You . . . This a brilliant collection that I recommend to any zombie lovers, those of us who like our fiction on the dark side, or for readers who love love, no matter what it does to you.” — Soleil Noir on Black Sun Reviews

“Who would have thought zombies could be so… tender? [Hungry For You] makes zombies less scary, more revolting, but also morbidly fascinating . . . it’s smart and spunky, bringing together horror, tragedy, romance and dark humour.” — Inkspot on Violin in a Void

“British author A.M. Harte is one of those who takes the zombie folklore and spins it around to give us a different taste of zombies. I think there is something for everyone in Hungry For You.” — Tina Mats on One More Page

Through Smoke by Jessica Tate

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Price: $0.99

Barnes and Noble (Nook)

Firefighter Michael McGinnis is no stranger to intense situations. Veteran of New York’s Ladder Twenty-One Company as a search and rescue man, he has seen his share of burning infernos, high-rise saves, and intense emergency situations. Despite McGinnis’ years on the job, nothing can prepare him for getting tangled in his brother’s mistakes as a drug addict and gambler, especially when a blood thirsty bookie gets involved. A romance sparks between him and fellow paramedic, Eva Crisante, catching him even more off guard. Morals are tested, lies are told, and relationships are built and then torn to ruins. The problems ahead are more challenging than any fire McGinnis has experienced. He learns that bravery is not only needed in his job with the department, but also in dire situations away from work. His tough love for his brother is tested, proving that there truly are things more dangerous than a five-alarm fire.

What they're saying about it:

"I read this author's first book, Modern Day Drifter, and said I would like to see her add some depth and complexity to her story. Well, she certainly added those items for this book. In Through Smoke, the characters were well-developed and the story was well-plotted. I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen with Mikey, Casey, and Eve. I cared about these characters and wanted to see their lives settle down and be good for them. Mikey and Casey are brothers and seemed very different from each other at first, but I don't think they were really that different. Casey was a true drug addict and gambler and Mikey struggles with alcohol. They had lost their father when they were very young and had a tough time dealing with his death, having never really grieved properly. Although their brotherly relationship has issues and Casey's gambling debts cause both brothers to become involved with a violent bookie, the love between the brothers is always evident. Eve is Mikey's love interest and also likeable. Their relationship develops and grows throughout the story, and they seem to be good for each other. This book held my interest until the end. It was filled with action and emotion, and I recommend it to others."

"I received an advanced reader copy of this book, actually as it was being written. I have to say, I loved watching the plot develop and the characters grow complex and fully fleshed out with each new chapter. There is plenty of action, from raging fires to encounters with a violent bookie, but it never overshadows the characters, especially Michael, the main character."

Barnes and Noble (Nook)
Smashwords (all eBook formats)

YOUNG JAMES FROST just knows, deep in his bones, that he's a writer. He writes far into early mornings, after his wearying hours of scrubbing toilets and sweeping floors. He loves writing that much.

But it's not only the joy of words that keeps him grinding; it's his desire to retire the janitor's mop. He sees being published as the key to living an improved life. James has another deep-seated conviction: that he's not good enough. He secretly longs to be accepted. However, the conventional others in his life seem all too willing to remind him that he's wasting his time.

Then he meets and falls in love with Leigh, the one bright spot in his endless misery of self-doubt. A quiet but resolutely religious girl, she has to fight off disapproval of her own from overly critical parents, whose insults are countered by James's often-voiced admiration of her. Likewise, Leigh's faith in his talents begins to build his confidence, eventually allowing her to introduce him to a different way to help himself: relying on God.

Ultimately, James's newfound faith is sorely tested to the point of doubt when his dream to be published seems to melt into a mirage, smothered by countless rejection slips from agents and publishers. His faith is also battered by having to fight highly emotional battles and suffer fear and loss. Just when James appears hopelessly sapped by devastating events, one last door opens, and he's rocked by an epiphany.

What they're saying about it:

"Unconventional is a wonderful story full of heart, humor, and what it means to truly be successful. An A+ novel for the keeper shelf." —Gemma Halliday, award-winning author

"I loved Unconventional, a stirring love story and spiritual journey that will surely touch your heart. You’ll remember James Frost for a long time!" —Cecelia Dowdy, inspirational romance novelist

When Jess spends the summer in her late grandmother's rambling Victorian summer cottage, she uncovers heart-rending mysteries and lost love. It has been seventeen years since Jess has last visited the elite lakefront summer club where she had spent the summers of her youth. Now, she returns with her photographer boyfriend who wants to write an article about the distinctive old house. Sifting through old letters and pictures she finds in a hidden trunk, Jess unravels long-hidden family secrets, including, just maybe, the secret to her own heart. In this vivid, cinematic debut, Nora Carroll tells the story of love lost and found in lyrical and evocative language that touches the heart.

What they're saying about it:

"By turns heart-rending and emotionally powerful, this tale of family secrets and lost love is a steal at only 99 cents."--Amazon Reviewer

"This is a deeply written story that deals with love, heartache, deceit and hidden secrets. There is a mildly hint at sexual encounters but nothing extra sensual which makes for a good read. This is the authors first novel and I feel she will become an up and coming author in the near future if she keeps writing novels like this one and does not go into erotic or heavy sexual encounters in her works. She should go far with this first book. Recommended"--Amazon Reviewer

Madeline Mann by Julia Buckley

Genre: Mystery

Price: $2.99

Where to Get It: (Kindle)

Madeline Mann is a small town reporter whom nobody takes seriously until her old high school friend disappears; when Maddy begins her search for Logan Lanford, everyone takes notice.

This might be because just about everyone is a suspect in Logan's disappearance, from his neglected wife to the shady mayor to Logan's jealous brother. Even Madeline's boyfriend seems to harbor some resentment toward the AWOL Logan and his reputation as a philanderer.

In searching for her old friend, Madeline is also searching for vindication of her career choice and a chance to be independent from a family that threatens to drive her crazy.

What they're saying about it:

"In her bright debut, Maddy is a welcome addition to the cozy scene."
--Kirkus Reviews

"An intriguing debut in an engaging, fresh new series. Make mine Madeline Mann!"
--Julia Spencer-Fleming, author of I SHALL NOT WANT

“This tightly plotted mystery is a fast-paced exhilarating ride, and investigative reporter Madeline Mann is by far the best fe-male lead to come along since Stephanie Plum. A cool, clever, funny read, and the beginning of an absolutely delightful series. Julia Buckley rocks.”
—Anne Frasier, bestselling author of HUSH and PALE IMMORTAL

Lovely, Dark, and Deep by Julia Buckley

Only months after solving her first mystery, Madeline is called to do God's work--or so says her former English teacher, Sister Moira--by investigating the mysterious death of a young nun named Sister Joanna.

Joanna's death is ten years in the past, but Moira has been troubled by dreams of her young friend, and she is convinced that Joanna was murdered.

Having heard of Madeline's investigative skills, Moira asks her to look into Joanna's death and find out if a murderer still lurks in the town of Webley, and if the dark secrets behind the death of a nun have somehow placed other people in danger.

I've read every fairy tale i can get my hands on, since i was a kid. this book reminds me of those classic fairy tales. the cleverness, the magic, the beauty.

To Reign in Heaven (19 years before the novel) – India is a synthetic woman in love, passing a blissful year studying Venus and reveling in a shared dreamspace with her silksteel lover. But when her Mother chooses to sacrifice her children, India’s memory of love is her only weapon to save her brothers and sisters.

But when a cloner arrives, Neil has a chance to take control of something for once in his life, and to avenge the death of his parents.

What they're saying about it:

"`Preludes' is a collection of 3 stories set in the world of Heirs of Mars.
`To Reign in Hell' is set 19 years before the events in the novel and tells us more about the AI intelligence Mother aboard the satellite around Venus.

`To Walk the Earth' is set 18 years before and details Asher's last days on Earth and the lover he left behind.

`To Serve in Hell' is set 1 day before and deals with a Martian colonist's view of the Cloners.

These stories are an excellent addition to the Heir of Mars universe. They expand the story out from the central themes of the novel giving interesting insights into the back stories of the characters."

Threads: The Reincarnation of Anne Boleyn by Nell Gavin

Genre: Historical Fantasy, Paranormal

Price: $2.99

Where to Get It: (Kindle)
Barnes and Noble (Nook)
Smashwords (all eBook formats)

In 1536, Henry and Anne are at the mercy of influences outside their control, explosively incompatible, and caught in a marriage that ends in betrayal so shocking that Anne requires lifetimes to recover.

Henry, seemingly in defense of Anne (but more likely acting out of "stubborn perverseness", she observes), terrorizes England and decrees widespread political murder in order to protect her. Ultimately, to Anne's horror, this once passionate husband turns on her and has her executed as well.

Threads, a reincarnation fantasy, opens with Anne's execution. Her fury at her husband’s betrayal has enough momentum to survive centuries, but in Threads she learns that she has been assigned a hard task: she must review their history together through a number of past lives, and find it within herself to forgive him. This may prove difficult and take some time. The husband in question is Henry Tudor, the notorious Henry VIII. The narrator is the stubborn, volatile Anne Boleyn, who is not at all inclined to forgive.

It is a very unusual love story.

William Faulkner Competition finalist for best novel.

What they're saying about it:

"Never, ever have I even considered writing a review, but this book deserves far, far more praise than it has received. The language is elegant and jewel-like and the story is transcendant. The use of the Hindu concept of reincarnation and the historically notorious relationship of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII are wonderful devices to explore love, trust, betrayal and forgiveness, in all types of relationships, throughout time. "Each society-each group within each society-chooses something with which to assign inferiority. ... Among the powerful, it is the powerless; among the rich, it is the poor; among the men, it is the women. ... Neither side sees the humanity in the other. Both sides are equally wrong in this." There are so many levels to the passionate, intricate and exquisitely expressed stories told here. It is a story of love, forgiveness, choice and redemption with some of the most beautiful contemporary prose I've ever had the pleasure to read. And I'm really glad my copy is hardcover, although I may have to order a softcover to loan to friends. I'm not letting my copy out of the house."--Amazon Reviewer

Today I'm glad to host Sybil Nelson, main organizer of the Kindle Indiependence Contest to win a free Kindle, and her book, Priscilla the Great!

If you think your middle school years are awkward and traumatic, try going through them with fire shooting out of your fingers!

Hey, I’m Priscilla and all I want is to be a normal seventh grader. That’s hard enough with an older brother annoyingly obsessed with Christina Aguilera, mischievous baby twin brothers who could scare the sin off of Satan, and parents more puzzling than a Rubik’s cube in the Bermuda triangle.

But when psycho, genetically enhanced assassins start trying to kill me and my family, being normal is downright impossible.

What they're saying about it:

"Priscilla the Great is a wonderfully funny book! I have had the pleaure of reading this book and, as a grade school teacher, I have plans to get a copy for my classroom as well. Priss in no simpering heroine, waiting to be rescued by a cute boy. She's spunky and has a great sense of humor. Priss really is a positive role model for girls. Priscilla's younger brothers add a little bit of grossness to the story that boys will appreciate as well. I would definitely recommend Priscilla the Great to anyone looking for something for their child."--Amazon Reviewer

"This book is full of action and I was always either laughing like crazy, or awing like crazy (is that even a verb?) or giggling like crazy. I was never bored, never pissed off at anyone. This is a highly entertaining read, and though it's obviously aimed at Middle Grade audiences, I think older people would enjoy it too."--Amazon Reviewer

The First Day After Life by Cristian YoungMiller

Genre: Spiritual/Metaphysical Fiction

Price: $2.99

Where to Get It: (Kindle)
Smashwords (all eBook formats)

Tian, a young psychic with overwhelming personal demons and a strong sense of purpose dies suddenly and arrives in the afterlife to an unexpected world outside of heaven. Irabell, his guide, shows Tian that the afterworld is a repository for more than just humans, and explains to him the mystery behind his psychic abilities.

Disturbed by what he learns, Tian escapes his guide and breaks into heaven. There Tian meets a 1500 year old, discontented heavenly resident who shares with him the secret of heaven and god.

Tian's otherworldly journey is cut short when he is forced to make the most important decision of his life. He can choose to stay in the afterlife and reap the rewards he has sown during a difficult life, or he can return to his broken body and complete the journey he was truly meant to take.

What they're saying about it:

"Cristian YoungMiller is a secure writer who is perhaps best known for his brief but entertaining AND educational books 'Happiness May Vary (previously titled 'Happiness thru the art of penis enlargement'), 'Everybody Masturbates', 'Everybody Masturbates for Girls', 'Everybody Has Those it doesn't mean you're gay'. But in this current major novel Cristian YoungMiller deals with issues that were born in his birthplace in the Bahamas and have followed him through his career as a director and screenwriter: he is on an ongoing journey to explore 'the gap between science and spirituality'.

THE FIRST DAY AFTER LIFE is a fascinating tale/fable that incorporates time travel, exploration of life after death, the netherworld of the soul of the universe, contemporary religions, speaking with the spirits or souls of the departed and even visiting them after some rather bizarre circumstances that bounce between this world and the next to come, between scientific study and spiritual realms of thought. As such it is not always easy to follow the story line: frequent backtracking to read prior chapters again in order to grasp where the author has taken us is necessary to stay on track.

Our main character is Tian, a unique lad with occult psychic abilities who dies at the beginning of the novel (he returns to his pre-death state frequently to re-think his relationships and incidents that occurred in his time on earth) and enters a purgatorial region where he discovers his guide Irabell (who has a very strange life story of his own!) who provides asides into the composition of the universe and the various 'compartments' that range from souls of the deceased and aliens and other strange concepts and informs Tian of the origins of his psychic abilities. Tian eventually escapes to heaven and there goes through a mental metamorphosis that allows him to make some rather shattering decisions.

Along the way YoungMiller takes time to explore the concept of atoms and the structure of matter and motion (very beautifully explained for the novice student of physics), the multi-dimensionality of all living creatures. But these are just topics this book explores in the form of a novel. It is YoungMiller's writing that is intoxicating: 'But after all of the years of his [Tian's] studying the spiritual books and the books on physics, a stone cracked the surface of his peaceful mind. "A loner stays alone, wants for nothing, and affects nothing around him. A discontented person constantly reaches out to others drawing them closer and then pushing them away," he considered. A discontented person is driven to search for more and has an effect on others. That person goes up and down. And more importantly, that person's discontented life is like all of the other discontented lives that are reaching and pushing through the malaise.'

Cristian YoungMiller's style of writing finds almost no comparisons as far as novel writing is concerned. Yes, there are aspects of 'Le Petit Prince', 'Gulliver's Travels', Moody's 'Life After Life', 'The Tibetan Book of the Dead, etc. But what YoungMiller has succeeded in creating is a character who in many ways can be Everyman. His journey may be a bit strenuous to follow at times, but it is consistently entertaining, gripping, compelling and educational. There probably is a screenplay hiding within the covers of this fascinating novel...Grady Harp, April 11"--Amazon Reviewer
