Annwyn's Blood

by
Steve Arnold and Michael Eging

When Marianna was spirited away by unknown raiders, everyone expected a ransom demand to soon follow. Such was the peril of everyday royal life in the chaotic times following abandonment of the misty isles of Albion by indifferent Rome. But when weeks went by without word her father, High King Mattheus, dispatched teams of trusted warriors to find her and bring her assailants to account.

Young Erik, Scion of the House of Birkenshire, was one of these. Separated from his comrades and alone in hostile territories, he plunged headlong into forgotten vales and desolate coasts in pursuit, driven onward by precious memories of stolen tender moments. Then he stood before the grim fortress – wherein he found, not the innocent damsel of his youthful desires, but a terrifying beauty borne of an ancient evil that bound his soul to an even more primal force bent on regaining its place in the halls of human exaltation.

Now caught between two worlds, he must resist the temptations of his beloved-turned-succubus while protecting his family, his people and his world from the encroaching grasp of Arawn, Lord of Annwyn, Ruler of the Dead, Elder God of the Mabinogion. In this journey to regain his soul, the knight must find a way to strike the fatal blow against a resurgent primal darkness.

The Lamb of God


The first series follows Dracula the man and the second Dracula the vampire. The author has had a lifelong fascination with Dracula. Like many others he was enthralled by Christopher Lee's portrayal of him on the big screen. It was in his late teens that he discovered Dracula the man, and the love affair began from there. An avid lover of history, he studied the period in which the real historical Vlad Dracula lived, 15th Century Balkan, for many years. It followed from there then that with his love of writing he would always choose Dracula as his subject. He built a concept and premise, centring on the Divine Drama – the battle of Heaven versus Hell - where he could accommodate both man and vampire. Away from writing, the author has a wide range of interests. He reads a lot of books from a wide variety of authors, though his main interest lies in the horror and historical genres. His love of books is matched only by his love of the countryside and of course, his family. As an added note, he has lived and travelled all over the world. He has a love for all things historical, with a particular fascination for medieval Europe. Anywhere he travels, he likes to search out locations with an historical interest and will always hunt for the ruins of an old castle before heading to the beach.

Gift a Book!

Another of the many reasons to love e-readers is that you may GIFT ebooks to friends and family who live either around the corner or perhaps thousands of miles away, without getting out of your jammies and leaving your home. Of course with Christmas around the corner this may be the first thing that pops into your mind. However, if your friend has an e-reader, or a tablet as you may download an app for Kindle, and will be having day surgery and they live too far away for you to drop by the hospital for an hour and/or you have already sent flowers, you may also wish to go to Amazon.com or Smashwords and gift them that great ebook you just read last week have it sent to them.
(Some Amazon sites such as the Canadian one, will not yet let you gift ebooks. I use my Amazon.com account to do so,)
A few months ago, a friend of mine was confined to a hospital room for radiation therapy, and was unable to receive visitors. I have had this procedure, and it is very lonely sixty hours. Thankfully, most hospitals have WI-FI so I was not cut off from the world. I did not bring any credit cards with me and I was surprised to find out I needed one to pay the fifteen dollar a day rental fee to have a telephone hooked up. You are told to leave all your valuables at home, so I figured I would use the phone in my room, so I did not bring my cell phone with me either. The one valuable I will not leave behind is my KOBO ARC, which is an e-reader and a tablet. I have a texting and phone app loaded on it, so with a WI-FI signal, I may do both. I have hundreds of books loaded, but when my friend was in the hospital I thought it would be nice to surprise her by sending her a book or two. She is not interested in reading erotica, plus with two patients to a room, one does not have the privacy one may desire if they were to in the mood for something spicy! A buddy of mine, obviously not a rocket scientist, (Sorry Mr. X, but I still laugh remembering you telling me this story!) was sharing a room for a weekend away with a band mate when he decided to read one of my stories. Apparently his body produced a physical reaction to my writing and he relayed how he was happy that his friend snored loudly so he would know if he woke up and he was not 'caught' reading as e-readers may not broadcast the title of the book you are enjoying but men may not always be able to hide it. Same goes for reading at the beach, and I would have thought a forty year old man would have been aware of this, or they underestimated the power of erotica. Ooops, I digress. I sent my friend whom was in the hospital the latest Glenn Trust novel in The Hunters Series. It was a nice surprise, she later told me, as although she was effectively in quarantine, she was aware I was there with her in spirit and thinking of her when she received the alert that she had been gifted some books. With Amazon you may also purchase Gift Cards if you do not have a specific title in mind, or you wish to let the patient pick something out.
Gifting ebooks may also come in handy if you forgot to put a card in the mail in time or, it happens, you forgot a birthday! You can send an ebook and they will be notified within minutes. To have fun, on a friends wedding anniversary, gift them some erotica! If a friend is in the army, gift them a comedy. A friend may also be home sick with a cold, or on bed rest with a broken leg. Send them award winning author Barry Finlays Kilimanjaro and Beyond, a book about his experience climbing the mountain with his son.

Gifting ebooks is an excellent alternative to sending flowers. Your friend will know you have been thinking of them and it only takes a few minutes to gift ebooks!

Here is a small list of books I have read and enjoyed immensely. I have gifted, or they are on my list of books I plan to gift to friends for different occasions. I have chosen books from different genres (some are the first books in a series and there may be box sets available for the complete series, which will be shown on Amazon) and I could add what I love about each book, but this would be a very long post. I can say I have read all of the books each author has released, and these are my favorites! I have left my reviews along with other readers on Amazon. Most are also available in paperback editions, which are perfect gifts for authors such as Uvi Poznanzky's work (her covers are gorgeous!) if you have time for it to be shipped. To save money on shipping, write down the ISBN number, found on the Amazon or Goodreads website, and take it with you to Barnes & Noble, Chapters, WH Smith or your local book store and they can order it through their wholesaler and you should, today is December 9, 2015, have it at your retail book store in time for Christmas, although it may depend on your location: country and city. Most authors also have copies of their books at home, so if you wish an autographed copy, try messaging the author via Goodreads or Facebook and see if you can purchase a signed copy from them, and if you pay via PayPal, depending on how you decide to have it shipped, you may receive it in time. Most authors will not charge for signing a copy, just for the cost of the book and the shipping,

***Please be advised that 'Eyes of the Predator' is an intense, realistic and sometimes graphic portrayal of victimization.*** 

Eyes scanning, searching, the predator looks like...us. He could be anyone and within hours a backwater south Georgia county will be rocked by two seemingly unrelated murders that signal the arrival of a serial killer in the rural southland. 

Hunting the killer and preventing the next brutal murder falls to a plainspoken country deputy and two agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI). It is a race against time to save the next victim and the chase leads north from the swamps along the Florida line to the foothills of the Appalachians. 

GBI agents Bob Shaklee and Sharon Price know that Deputy George Mackey is a natural hunter and if anyone can find the sadistic killer, Mackey can. But Mackey, haunted by his own demons can only wonder if he will be late again. It is his greatest fear.

Historical Fiction




  "...an eye opening and heart-warming story of survival..."

"the essence of human nature" in the beautiful historic setting of Bratislava in 1933

“Left me breathless and in awe” – "should be mandatory reading in history class"

In the sleepy town of Bratislava in 1933 a romantic girl falls for a bookseller from Berlin. Greta Weissensteiner, daughter of a Jewish weaver, slowly settles into life with the Winkelmeier clan. The political climate and slow disintegration of the multi-cultural society in Czechoslovakia becomes more complex and affects relations between the couple and their families.
The story follows their lot through the war with its torment, destruction and its unpredictability - and the equally hard times after.

From the moment that Greta Weissensteiner enters the bookstore where Wilhelm Winkelmeier works, and entrances him with her good looks and serious ways, I was hooked. But this is no ordinary romance; in tact it is not a romance at all, but a powerful, often sad, Holocaust story. What makes The Luck of the Weissensteiners so extraordinary is the chance Christoph Fischer gives his readers to consider the many different people who were never in concentration camps, never in the military, yet who nonetheless had their own indelible Holocaust experiences. Set in the fascinating area of Bratislava, this is a wide-ranging, historically accurate exploration of the connections between social location, personal integrity and, as the title says, luck. I cared about every one of this novel's characters and continued to think about them long after I'd finished reading.

-- Andrea Steiner, University of California Santa Cruz

The Luck of the Weissensteiners is an epic saga set in wartime Eastern Europe. It follows the lives of two families - one Jewish, one Catholic - and their entwined survival amidst the backdrop of the second world war; first the fascist then the communist invasion and occupation of Slovakia, and the horror of the consequences of war. The reader is transported to a world of deception, fear, distrust and betrayal, alongside enduring love and family drama. Weissensteiners is a magnificent tale of human survival.


Drama

The Other Side
by Terry Tyler



Decision time. Left or right? Mr X, or Mr Y?
Imagine being able to find out what would happen if you’d chosen the other path...
Would you make the same decision?
...and, if you could, would you go back and change all the mistakes you've ever made
in the name of love?

"The Other Side" tells of four lives, all very different.
Glamorous Katya is certain she can “have it all”, but forgets that some people have
long memories…
Cathy is trapped in a tedious marriage with the in-laws from hell – but why did the
rock-chick marry Mr Pipe and Slippers?
Alexa fears that a ‘friend’ is trying to steal away her perfect life – everyone dismisses
her fears as paranoia...
...while Sandie struggles with a drink problem and life spiralling downwards – but
which came first, the drink or the problem?

Four very different stories – but they are all connected.
"The Other Side" travels backwards through time to unravel the decisions of the past
and their influence on the present lives of everyone concerned - for better or for worse...

Poetry

Home 
by Uvi Poznanzky


Home. A simple word; a loaded one. You can say it in a whisper; you can say it in a cry. Expressed in the voices of father and daughter, you can hear a visceral longing, in poems and prose, for an ideal place. A place never to be found again.
Imagine the shock, imagine the sadness when a daughter discovers her father’s work, the poetry he had never shared with anyone during the last two decades of his life. Six years after that moment of discovery, which happened in her childhood home while mourning for his passing, Uvi Poznansky presents a tender tribute: a collection of poems and prose, half of which is written by her, and half—by her father, the author, poet and artist Zeev Kachel. She has been translating his poems for nearly a year, with careful attention to rhyme and rhythm, in an effort to remain faithful to the spirit of his words.
Zeev’s writing is always autobiographical in nature; you can view it as an ongoing diary of his life. Uvi’s writing is rarely so, especially when it comes to her prose. She is a storyteller who delights in conjuring up various figments of her imagination, and fleshing them out on paper. She sees herself chasing her characters with a pen, in an attempt to see the world from their point of view, and to capture their voices. But in some of her poems, she offers you a rare glimpse into her most guarded, intensely private moments, yearning for Home.
