FORTY YEARS LATER (David Grossman Series Book 1)

FORTY YEARS LATER (David Grossman Series Book 1)

Product Description

Stay Thirsty Publishing Proudly Presents Forty Years Later – 10th Anniversary Edition (Newly Revised).

An Amazon #1 Bestseller with over 55,000 eBooks downloaded from veteran author Steven Jay Griffel. A compelling story of second chances in life and love.

Successful middle-aged publishing executive David Grossman risks everything to fulfill a promise to a woman he has not seen in forty years. When former teen sweethearts David and Jill reunite after four decades, sparks fly, despite his long marriage to Allison and Jill’s LGBT reputation.

Jill Black, a “one-hit wonder” Hollywood screenwriter, is consumed by her last chance to write and direct her own film. Success will reinvigorate her career. Failure will end it. When a pompous studio “suit” begins to undermine her authority and threatens to kill her project, the pressure forces her to spin from rage to murderous madness and she ensnares David in her dark plot.

Love and betrayal. Revenge and redemption. For some it ends happily. For others it all comes undone in this fast-paced drama of Baby Boomers trying to hang on to their lives, their families, and their dreams. A riveting novel of suspense and humor, masterfully told by Steven Jay Griffel.

“Griffel’s narrative is a rush - sharp, spot on, and funny as hell.” - Laurie Rozakis, Author, Editor & Public Speaker.

Forty Years Later is a great read. It’s fast, edgy, but poignant. Steven Jay Griffel really captures the emotions of the Woodstock generation forty years later.” - Les Kaye, Musician and Emmy Award winner.

From the 120 Amazon customer reviews:

“Lost Dreams Redeemed … Everyone Wants A Do-Over … Excellent depiction of individual personalities ... I reminisced in a dream like sort of way of my Woodstock experience … Well written and easy reading … I chose this book because at the center is the Catskills - a bungalow colony - which is where I met my future husband at the age of 13 … If you've ever cared for someone and years later wondered, “What if ...”, Forty Years Later is great fun, with a dash of poignancy.”

About the Author

The Savannah Project (The Action-Packed Jake Pendleton Political Thriller series Book 1)

Product Description

The truth can be a dangerous thing.

Terrorism, duty, and personal safety collide when Jake Pendleton, an investigator for the NTSB, is called to investigate an aircraft accident in Savannah, Georgia during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The accident, which at first appears to be quite run-of-the-mill, turns out to be anything but. Since Jake is not willing to pretend there are no suspicious circumstances and more than the usual share of rather unlikely “coincidences,” he sets off a veritable avalanche of secrets, violence and treachery. Aided by an unlikely partner, Gregg Kaplan, the air traffic controller who was the last person in contact with the airplane that crashed, Jake sets out to untangle the webs of deceit and to find a vicious killer.

Nothing is as it seems, nobody is who you thought them to be.
Nothing is sacred.
Nobody is safe.


The Savannah Project is an action packed political thriller with a twist around every corner. If you like thrillers by great authors like David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and others, then you'll enjoys this book as the author incorporates his 3M formula for his novels: Murder, Mystery, & Mayhem.


His books have reached Amazon Bestseller status in the following categories:
•Espionage & Spy Thrillers
•Political Thrillers
•Political Thriller & Suspense
•Action & Adventure
•Terrorism Thriller


Praise about Barrett's books from New York Times Best Selling authors:

“The Savannah Project signals the arrival of a new member to the thriller genre. Chuck Barrett. The tale contains all of the danger, treachery, and action a reader could wish for. The intrigue comes from all directions, slicing and stitching with precision. A worthy debut from an exciting talent.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

“The Toymaker is a fun, fast moving thriller with plenty of gadgets and a lot of action.”
—Phillip Margolin
New York Times bestselling author of Capitol Murder

Praise from the media:

Lee Scott
Florida Times Union
March 10, 2013

"Maybe we have Steve Berry to thank. Or it’s because our area happens to be a haven for literary-inclined retirees. Or it could just be the changing book publishing environment. Whatever the reason, Northeast Florida writers these days are producing some pretty darn good independent thrillers.

Best-selling Berry (his latest “The King’s Deception” will be out in June), who grew up in Georgia, lived just over the line in St. Marys for a number of years and a while ago moved to World Golf Village in St. Augustine, maintains a high profile in our books community as a speaker and proponent of things literary. He is also a good judge of talent. His cover blurb on retired air traffic controller Chuck Barrett’s first novel “The Savannah Project” gave the Fernandina author’s initial indie publishing effort a nice boost.

Following last year’s “The Toymaker,” Barrett’s third Jake Pendleton adventure, “Breach of Power,” has Jake and his partner Francesca Catanzaro settled in with an “off the books” private intelligence firm and the President of the United States needs their help.

“Breach of Power” opens the superlatives spigot. Its plot is as fast and solid as anything on the market. The good guys have all the right stuff and the bad guys will bring nightmares…it’s guaranteed you will lose sleep with this one."

Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas

Product Description

From Amazon bestselling author Diane Moody.

Sometimes the best Christmas presents aren't found under the tree . . .

Working late on Christmas Eve, college senior Hannah Brooks is in the midst of a full-blown pity party. When a last-minute customer brimming with holiday spirit invites her to a candlelight service and a late-night family dinner, Hannah reluctantly accepts. She has no idea this kindhearted woman is the mother of Jason McKenzie - leader singer of Out of the Blue, the hottest band in the country - and Hannah's childhood idol. The evening ends with an innocent kiss (sans mistletoe) as Hannah is swept away by Jason's unpretentious manner.

Over the holidays Hannah and Jason's relationship grows, but when turmoil and tragedy strike at the very heart of his famous band, their newfound love is put to the test in the glare of the paparazzi spotlight. Throughout her rollercoaster of experiences with Jason and his friends, Hannah comes face to face with her own beliefs. Who knew she could learn more about prayer and faith by hanging out with a bunch of rock stars than she ever learned in church?

The author first wrote Blue Christmas as a gift for her then-teenage daughter in honor of her affection for a wildly popular band in the late 90s. The short story grew into a full-length novel, eventually surfacing on one of the band's fan fiction websites where it became quite a phenomenon. More than 80,000 readers stopped by to read the story, with over 1000 of them sending personal emails to the author who still enjoys reading them today. Though the story's details have been changed, its band and all characters now fictional, the story line remains the same. Author Diane Moody has dedicated Blue Christmas to her now-grown daughter, Hannah Moody.

Sovereign Hope (A Young Adult Paranormal Romance)

Sovereign Hope (A Young Adult Paranormal Romance)

Product Description

Everyone has a soul.

Some are just worth more than others.

Farley Hope was seventeen when her mother disappeared. In the last six months not much has changed, except that her eighteenth birthday came and went and still no sign of Moira. Her life is just as complicated as it always was: since her father died in a car crash before she was even born, she’s officially parentless, and to top it all off she’s still suffering from the hallucinations. Mind-splitting, vivid hallucinations- the kind prone to induce night terrors and leave you whimpering under your covers like a baby.

The last thing on her mind is boys. Farley is on break from St. Judes’ when she meets Daniel. It’s not some casual run in at a party, or even a blind date with friends, though. Daniel is the guy stalking her in his 1970′s Dodge Charger; the guy standing at her window in the LA lunch hour traffic, determined on dragging her out of her truck.

The moment Farley lays eyes on Daniel, everything changes. However, regrettably for Farley, her life isn’t set to change for the better. She is drawn into a world that will shake apart everything she thought she ever knew. There are truths out there that she must learn: who her father really was, and what it means to have his blood flowing through her veins; that a person’s soul is their only real currency, and there are people who would do anything to take hers; that loving someone can hurt so much more than hating them; but, most importantly, when your future is predestined, there is little you can do to change it.

Farley Hope is prophesied.

Her coming has been awaited for hundreds of years.

She is destined to end the tyranny of the Soul Reavers.

To do so she must die.

Emily Dickinson was so paranoid that she only spoke to people from behind a door.

Carson McCullers wrote The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter at age 22. Her husband wanted them to commit suicide in the French countryside, but she refused.

Ambrose and Turner explore these and other intriguing facts about the most famous (but departed) women in literary history.

Rasputin and The Jews - A Reversal of History

Rasputin and The Jews - A Reversal of History

Product Description

This book is an account of Rasputin as a healer, equal rights activist and man of God, and why he was so vilified by the aristocracy that their libelous and slanderous rumors became accepted as history. For nearly a century, Grigory Rasputin, spiritual advisor to Russia's last Tsar and Tsarina, has been unjustly maligned simply because history is written by the politically powerful and not by the common man. A wealth of evidence shows that Rasputin was discredited by a fanatically anti-Semitic Russian society, for advocating equal rights for the severely oppressed Jewish population, as well as for promoting peace in a pro-war era. Testimony by his friends and enemies, from all social strata, provides a picture of a spiritual man who hated bigotry, inequity and violence. The author is the great-great niece of Aron Simanovitch, Rasputin's Jewish secretary.

Amazon.com Review

The writing in this excerpt is strong and effective if wordy. Harley is an appealing character and the author has succeeded in making the reader want to know what happens to her. The device of the almond is an especially deft touch and the reader knows immediately what is meant whenever it occurs in the text. The chronology is a bit awkward. Harley says she got thrown out of the house and when. Once forewarned, the reader keeps waiting for it to happen. The backstory bogs down the action and it doesn't happen when the reader expects it, or judging from the last page, at all. The character of Harley's father as uber-abuser with absolutely no redeeming qualities gives this story a credibility issue. Actual abusers usually have some quality that binds their victims to them. Some ruthless editing to eliminate the more redundant details and clean up the sequence of events, along with giving Harley's father one or two lovable characteristics would make this story leap off the page. It deserves it.

Amazon.com Review

This is a novel I would love to read! The excerpt is original and beautifully crafted. The writer deftly uses his/her own voice rather than relying on imitation in the narrative. When writing about the this type of disturbing subject matter, it is easy to overuse tired, meaningless and cliched expression. But the narrator's voice through the first person point-of-view is original, sensitive and genuine, bringing the reader closer to her and the situation we find her in. I definitely feel this novel can be successful.

REVIEWS

PIERS ANTHONY, author of the Xanth series, the Incarnations of Immortality series, the Adept series, and so much more!
Now I have read The Fisherman's Son. This is a nice children's fantasy, grounded in realism. Even the fantastic element is realistic, in that the dolphin doesn't abridge the rules just for convenience; the right introduction has to be made. It's not all right to make the excuse "I lost the cup because of a bear.”

James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief of the “Midwest Book Review”
The Fisherman’s Son is a delightful and colorfully narrated tale which documents Marilyn Peake as a story teller of considerable narrative skill.

Rebecca Brown, Founder of “RebeccasReads”
The Fisherman’s Son is a complex tale simply written, with fascinating detail & unblinking reality borrowing from legends & sagas deep within our collective memories.

Phillip Tomasso III, “The Best Reviews”
Marilyn Peake has burst onto the scene as a promising writer with the release of her first middle grade novel, The Fisherman’s Son.

…Peake is a talented, creative and passionate storyteller. The Fisherman’s Son is a thought provoking, heart-felt fantasy novel with a twist. It lends itself to great discussion questions to be reviewed with parents, teachers, or friends. Easy to pick up and read, hard to put down.

Beverly J. Rowe, “My Shelf”
The author’s descriptions of the underwater world are exhilarating as Wiley traverses the depths and meets up with wonderful undersea creatures and the fearsome dragon-beast that guards the entrance to the village.

This book would be a great read-aloud project for the whole family.

Tracy Farnsworth, “Roundtable Reviews”
Marilyn Peake launches her debut with a fast paced offering that contains excellent imagery amidst a coming of age story.

The Fisherman’s Son will appeal to readers both young and old.
This relatively quick read is a perfect offering for those who love fantasy.

Sharon Schulz-Elsing, Contributing Editor of “Curled Up With a Good Book”
Marilyn Peake’s first fantasy novel for young readers, The Fisherman’s Son, calls to mind all the mystery and wonder of Orson Scott Card’s earlier mythological works such as Hart’s Hope or Seventh Son in its quest-style tale, and in its evocative descriptions of a place much like early nineteenth-century Ireland comes close to the lush and luminous visual treatment of John Sayles’ magical film The Secret of Roan Innish.

…this children’s debut shines with fear, wonder, triumph and loss. Few readers will be able to resist this tale of a resourceful young boy…

Jennie S. Bev
This first book by author Marilyn Peake shows her tremendous talent in story telling.

In many ways, I found The Fisherman’s Son a strong novel for children.

Cheryl McCann, “Review-Books”
The Fisherman’s Son is a children’s novel filled with fantasy, adventure and the heroic qualities of a brave, young boy. Even though it is considered a children’s book, I certainly enjoyed the rich, descriptive text of this tale. It has wonderful imagination with touches of realism; descriptions of events are rich and put you in the scene, and it has a wonderful plot. I recommend it highly and look forward to the next book.

  • Keep cool and never lose your rag again?
  • Dump that baggage once and for all?
  • Stop that really annoying thing you do?
  • Get that perfect job/relationship/life. The one you really deserve?

All these things and more can be yours if you just put your mind to work for you. Change the way you see and feel about things and transform your life.
