The Dead Room

Product Description

THE DEAD ROOM
The No. 1 Amazon.com Bestseller (US & UK)

A young woman is found, brutally murdered and left on gruesome display in the “safety” of her own home. The atrocity kicks off an investigation into a bizarre string of increasingly disturbing murders, all believed to be perpetrated by someone of unprecedented savagery and cunning.

As the city’s panic rises, civil attorney Teddy Mack is thrown headlong into the grisly homicide case—and into a world of dirty politics and corrupt justice, where deceptions are as deadly as a killer’s twisted secrets. Now, another woman is about to meet the same horrific fate as the others. To end a madman’s reign, Teddy must enter his maze—a place of unimaginable terror and shocking revelations.

Reviews:

“R.T. teaches a master class in world-building. Rich in characters and details, he pulls you through a breathtaking tale that surpasses good versus evil.”
~Jean Rabe, USA Today bestselling author

“R.T. Kaelin is one of those few new authors who understand both the importance of immersing the reader in the story and how to accomplish it. From the first word, he grabs you and holds you captive throughout. I enjoyed reading Progeny and look forward to more books from R.T. Kaelin.”
~Maxwell Alexander Drake, Author of Genesis of Oblivion Saga

"Anyone who enjoys adventure stories or magical and paranormal I would suggest you give this a try. For me, Progeny is in league with both The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings and far better than Harry Potter - Progeny has a wealth of depth to it that I haven't seen in many books..”
~Clover Hill Book Reviews

"Overall, I would favorably compare his writing with Brandon Sanderson, Scott Lynch, (early) Robert Jordan and even a bit of David Eddings flavor mixed in. I really enjoyed this book and my biggest disappointment is going to be waiting for the next installment."
~LuxuryReading.com

“When I picked up Progeny, I was soon swept up into a world so large, and a tale so relentless, that I could not put it down. The plot flows as strongly as a waterfall but manages to pace itself and keep the reader guessing.
The disparate characters we meet along the way are intriguing and richly nuanced, reminding one of Tolkien's without being derivative."
~D Kistner, Associate Editor, FutureCycle Press

“The best word I have to describe this book is ‘wow.’ This book was so good and so action packed I got into the book on the first page. I am certain that this series is going to win some awards.”
-BookGateway.com

"Robert Jordan. George R. R. Martin. Stephen Donaldson. Brandon Sanderson. These are the masters of fantasy and readers of Progeny will be able to discover a new voice that is destined to match those authors."
~BooksieBlog.com

I found the author carefully planned out the topography, the language, the poetry, the events and the battles just like Tolkien did and I think that is partly why I loved the book so much - the nice thing about RT Kaelin's writing though is that I didn't have to concentrate as much to keep the events straight."

About Dangerous Secrets :

Being a divorce attorney for the rich and famous isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Julie Harrison has learned that love doesn’t last, and she’s sworn never to make the same mistakes as her mother, or her clients. She uses the games men play to keep them at a distance. The only man who managed to break down her walls was Luke Walker, a Navy SEAL who loved her and left her, and changed her forever.

When Luke arrives back in New York, running Walker Security with his brothers and having left his Navy SEAL days behind, he sets his sights on Julie, the woman he’s always wanted and couldn’t have. Except, she runs from him every time he gets close.

But now, one of Julie’s clients, a powerful judge, gets involved with a dangerous cartel, and his soon-to-be-ex wife ends up dead. Julie’s next on the list, and she finds herself on the run from those who believe she knows too much, and counting on Luke to keep her alive. In the deepest, darkest moments of the night, passion will bring them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Can Julie and Luke trust each other and find their happy ending before they find … the end?

Excerpt:

Her hand went to his wrist and heat darted up his arm, but it was the vulnerable, insecure look on her face that undid him. She didn’t think he wanted her. Despite his attention, despite the kisses that would, and should have, set off a five-alarm blaze, she didn’t know.

He slid his hand to her neck. “I only want one woman and that’s you.”

“Then act like it, Luke,” she said, ”because you’re confusing me and I don’t know what you want. I--”

He covered her mouth with his and for the first time since his return, he let her taste his desire, let her feel the hunger inside him that no one had sated since her. His hand slid over the sexy curve of her hip to the dip of her tiny waist.
Her arms wrapped around his neck, and she molded herself to his body. She was no longer vulnerable or timid. She was the seductress she could be, the seductress he knew had just lured him to the very place he’d sworn he wouldn’t go. To the land of lust and forgetfulness where she ruled, where sex was a weapon, and a wall of separation grew despite the absence of clothing.

On Unfaithful Wings: An Icarus Fell Novel

On Unfaithful Wings: An Icarus Fell Novel

Product Description

On Unfaithful Wings (An Icarus Fell Novel #1)

To some, death is the end; to others, a beginning. To Icarus Fell, it should have been a relief from a life gone seriously awry.

But death had other plans.

Icarus doesn't believe that the man awaiting him when he wakes up in a cheap motel room is really the archangel Michael, or that God's right hand wants him to help souls on their way to Heaven. Icarus doesn't believe there is a Heaven, so why should they want his help?

But the man claiming to be the archangel tempts him with an offer he can't ignore--harvest enough souls and get back the life he wished he'd had.

It seems Icarus has nothing to lose, until he botches a harvest and the soul that went to Hell instead of Heaven comes back to make him pay by threatening to take away the life he hoped to win back.

To save the wife and son he already lost once, Icarus will have to become the man he never was. Somehow, he will have to learn to believe.

"The next book in this series cannot come out soon enough for this reader. Not just my favorite Kindle book of the year, but one of my favorite books ever."

"I loved this book."

"Bruce Blake's On Unfaithful Wings is a great urban fantasy novel. I love good character development in a story's protagonist and Blake nails it with Icarus Fell. I found myself rooting for him from the get go and laughing out loud at some of his observations."

"On Unfaithful Wings was an impressive first novel. All of the characters were interesting and engaging, but in particular the main character and his struggle to reconcile with his new identity/job.
This is one of those stories that stays with me long after I read it and I'll be on the lookout for more from this author."

"This is just, simply, amazing. Icarus is one of the best characters I've ever "met", chock full of virtues and faults and doubts and worries and a simple HUMANNESS that comes through so clearly, I almost expect to run into him around the next corner."

"Icarus Fell is a flawed man but a wonderful character. From the moment I started reading On Unfaithful Wings I was pulled along by this interesting character and wanting to know what would happen next."

Prelude to Reveille: A Vietnam Awakening

Prelude to Reveille: A Vietnam Awakening

Product Description

Have we made things right with our Vietnam Veterans? It's been almost one-half century since American involvement in this unpopular war, but after reading Prelude to Reveille: A Vietnam Awakening, readers understand why author S.D.Sawyer has written this novel and asked this question.

Inspired by real-life experiences of the author and her husband, this historical fiction mines the personal histories of protagonist Tom Barrington and other soldiers during this turbulent period. Tom arrived at his first assignment, The Old Guard, in Arlington, VA, in December, 1967. Months later he was ordered to Ranger School, and finally deployed to Vietnam. His young wife, Meg, juggled her career as a new teacher while adapting to regulations required of an Army wife, before entering the foreboding world of the Waiting Wife.

Wounded half-way through his tour, Tom went from combat on a jungle trail to surgery in Japan, to enrollment at a small college back home. Anti-war demonstrations and protests cordoned off returning veterans from what should have been safe soil. Ignored by institutions and support networks that had offered care to returning soldiers in past decades, these veterans could never have prepared for a peacetime home front that would prove as perilous and haunting as the theater of war they had faced in Southeast Asia.

Sawyer presents a hard contrast between the repeatedly tested valor of such noble heroes, and the chilling response to them from this once-proud country. Prelude to Reveille: A Vietnam Awakening possesses a sense of time and place that foreshadows issues still facing military families. Its tone and details make it resonate with those who lived during this era as well as future generations who will only learn of these conflicts from a history book.

Bravery and commitment to America are not limited to times of triumph and national celebration, but remain steadfast and true in the face of protracted engagement, ambiguous mission and uncertain outcome. In this tribute to our soldiers, S.D. Sawyer invokes a call for the America of today to awaken to what Vietnam War era soldiers have lived through, and realize—many still need to be welcomed back home.

To Protect & Serve
The Courage Series, Book 1
*~* Excerpt *~*

It was like a whole sleeping system snapped awake around Lisa. People she had no idea where they had come from were suddenly running in every direction at once.

“Sorry, Ms. Matheson, we’re going to have to do this some other time,” Captain Hayes said, but she was too stunned to do more than nod.

Men, gear, boots, equipment, and then just as the truck roared to life, the last fireman in full gear flashed by her and jumped into the back door. All the air vanished from the earth itself when he slammed that door closed. The blaring continued above her, but she hardly heard it as her eyes blurred against the sight. Slowly the truck pulled out into the street, leaving her standing alone in the empty station house.

“Oh, God, please, let him be all right.”

THE SIMPLE TRUTH: BP's Macondo Blowout

THE SIMPLE TRUTH: BP's Macondo Blowout

Product Description

On a quiet Tuesday evening in April 2010, experienced leaders aboard Transocean's DEEPWATER HORIZON drilling rig ran pressure tests and declared BP's deep oil-and-gas well to be secure. They were wrong. Hours later the well blew out, followed by explosions and fire that killed 11, sank the rig in the mile-deep Gulf of Mexico, and left behind mourning families, a disastrous environmental oil spill, and questions without answers. Questions like: Who, how, what caused BP's blowout?

THE SIMPLE TRUTH is a nonfiction novel (fact-based fiction). The story dramatizes the drilling and demise of BP's 3-1/2-mile-deep Macondo exploration well, albeit at the hands of fictional characters—surrogates for survivors and the eleven perfect witnesses who died that terrible night. Readers are invited to join the crew aboard the rig and share their lives as they drill ever deeper and make the costly decisions that define the business. And when just one of several such decisions goes wrong and the clock ticks down, readers, too, will better understand the simple rule: Zero tolerance for failure, because offshore there's nowhere to run.

J.A. Turley leans on his decades-long industry career as an offshore-drilling expert to unravel investigative findings about the catastrophe. As a degreed petroleum engineer, ocean engineer, and professor of petroleum engineering, he narrates the story as if he and the reader are on the rig, immersed in the character-rich world of offshore drilling. His detailed and extensively referenced Epilogue documents the simple truth about the CAUSE of BP's Macondo blowout.

Readers who are also interested in the EFFECTS of BP's blowout—the oil spill, company culture, energy independence—are encouraged to read published nonfiction titles on the topic by renowned authors and journalists, including: Joel Achenbach; Bob Cavnar; John Conrad & Tom Shroder; William R. Freudenburg & Robert Gramling; Peter Lehner & Bob Deans; Stanley Reed & Alison Fitzgerald; Carl Safina; Loren C. Steffy; Joseph A Tainter &Tad Patzek, and others.

Product Description

How far would you go for justice?

Ryan and Ty will go all the way.

Ex-military bodyguard Ryan Lock, and his partner retired US Marine Ty Johnson, hunt down a wealthy serial rapist who thinks he's above the law.

Convicted of a series of horrific sex crimes against young college students in upscale Santa Barbara, wealthy playboy Charlie Mendez has fled across the US border into Mexico.

As one bounty hunter after another meets a grisly end at the hands of the murderous drug cartel his family have hired to keep him safe, it seems that Mendez is one fugitive destined to remain beyond the reach of the law. Or at least that's how it looks until one determined victim persuades high-end security specialist Ryan Lock and his partner, retired Marine Ty Johnson, to go after him.

Plunged into a nightmare world where no one can be trusted, least of all the local authorities, the two men discover a city more deadly than any war zone. Worse still, when an American tourist is snatched from the streets, it appears that Mendez has returned to his old ways.

The race is on to save her, but can Lock and Ty get to her in time?

Know Stealing: Solutions for people who eat food and use things.

Know Stealing: Solutions for people who eat food and use things.

Product Description

Know Stealing is the culmination of 15 years of research and 5 years of writing, learning more, digging deeper, throwing material away and writing again, always searching for the root causes of our problems as a state and nation.

Know Stealing begins:

"A people or nation that does not understand liberty cannot defend it."

"I work late and rise early thinking about liberty, production and the nature of things. The stakes are high. Your time is valuable. Please permit me to be direct. We have been deceived, and I know how it was done.
The reader with an open mind, who actively questions everything, including the ideas recorded here, will get the most out of Know Stealing. When you reach the last page, it is my hope that you will have demanded, and that I will have delivered, solid arguments capable of standing under scrutiny and pressure."

Following are a few other excerpts from the introduction:

"... My single objective is to share the very best of what I've learned with those who are willing to open their minds and think, in order to understand how to restore and preserve our great nation as a land of liberty and production. I welcome all challenges with regard to these ideas."

"... The material in this book is powerful. It will teach a bold middle school student all that is necessary to debate and defeat a formally educated economist or an experienced politician. Imagine a magnificent skyscraper that is built on a lie. If a person, even a child, can show that the foundation is a lie, then the whole building has to be an illusion. Many things we believe are true are no more than illusions. Children who study the ideas presented in this book will have a better understanding of the world we live in than most successful and formally educated adults."

"... One of my challenges is to explain where we are wrong in our thinking without unnecessarily offending people. At the same time, I would debate any citizen, businessman, pastor, professor, teacher, leader, political activist, elected official or journalist on these ideas at any time, in any place. The bottom line is that our thinking is extremely mixed up and, in many important areas, just flat out wrong. The errors in our thinking and understanding are costing us our liberty, our homes, our jobs, our retirements and our children's future."

"... Liberty and prosperity are always at stake in every nation for every generation. Eventually bad decisions in the past force a generation to come to terms with the truth about what is necessary to sustain a free society. We are one of those generations. In our case, we can no longer naively depend on past production, new land, old-style immigration, industrialization, available cheap energy and paper wealth to maintain our standard of living."

###

Know Stealing will shatter preconceived notions and replace them with clear and precise knowledge which is capable of driving restoration in our American Republic in particular, and modern civilization in general. Clearly the preceding statement is bold, but it will hold up under honest critical review.

With wisdom, knowledge, understanding, courage and commitment, we can right the ship and restore prosperity in the United States in a matter of months. The same is true in any society that will genuinely defend individual life, liberty and property.

One of the principle goals of the book is to enable more people to Know Stealing, so that we can enforce a policy of No Stealing. Theft that goes undetected will never be stopped.

Early reviews by notes and word of mouth have been excellent.

Print Edition is estimated to be around 425 pages. The content is well organized, easy to read and quick to reference.

The Concert Killer (Rock & Roll Mystery Series Book 3)

The Concert Killer (Rock & Roll Mystery Series Book 3)

Product Description

San Diego private investigator Jason Duffy is hired by a group of concert promoters after a serial killer leaves a note near a 17-year-old girl who was beaten and drowned in a toilet during one of their shows. The note informs the police that she is his fourth victim and suggests that he’ll continue to kill until he shuts down the concert industry because he believes that “concerts are evil.”

Jason meets with the detectives heading the investigations in four major California cities, but is quickly stymied by a bureaucratic state task force leader with selfish priorities. Before being shut out, Jason learns that the killer not only changed cities for each attack, but also his method of murder and physical appearance.

As a former club musician, Jason is forced to work the case from a unique angle. Aided by the concert promoters and an SDPD detective, he narrows the killer’s options. But a story in the San Diego free press brings Jason into the killer’s sights and puts at risk everyone he holds near and dear.

The author of 2010 Mystery/Thriller of the Year Rock & Roll Rip-Off once again adds LOL humor in between compelling action scenes. Besides offering readers a backstage pass to the music industry, The Concert Killer brings to light a potentially catastrophic danger that few have ever considered.

The Money Tree

Product Description


TOM AND HUCK TAKE ON THE SOPRANOS! A PAGE-TURNING FIRST NOVEL FROM AN AWARD-WINNING TRAVEL WRITER!
Set in the wilds of Western North Carolina – near historic Cold Mountain – the story turns on two teen brothers' chance discovery of a drug dealers' money drop in the knothole of a tree. The impoverished boys enjoy the "fruit" of "the money tree" until they are caught in flagrante by the mafiosi whose money it is. (At the same time, they witness the murder of a pot farmer wrongly thought by the dealers of being the one who’s robbing them.)

The boys narrowly escape, setting off a wild, downriver chase through the trackless Green River Wilderness – a chase that pits unarmed country boys and armed-to-the-teeth city men in a "guerrilla" war to the death.

The Way of The Heart, Teachings of Jeshua and Mary Magdalene

Product Description

USA Best Book Awards winning finalist in inspirational spirituality and National Indie Excellence Award Finalist in spirituality. The Way of The Heart is a spiritual course on how to access your soul and become a true co-creator of your world. After years of meditation practice, Sophie Rose was contacted by a spirit who called himself Jeshua, or Jesus. Then Mary Magdalene joined a few months later. The 36 lessons of The Way of The Heart were dictated in the silence of meditation. The second part of the book contains the comments and questions of an audience and Jeshua and Mary Magdalene's answers.

REVIEWS:
"This material is profoundly simple. It's strong and clear, and is all you need to know to conquer the illusion of this world, help shift it into the new age of enlightenment and earn yourself a permanent exit pass. It's all you need to know. The rest is simply practice." - Hunt Henion, author of four books, including the best-seller Looking, Seeing and Knowing.

"This is a must read for all seekers of perennial knowledge. Direct and concise, Sophie's channeled teachings of Jeshua and Mary Magdalene illuminate the teachings of the great mystics of all esoteric traditions. Not for the feint of heart. If you are looking for another self-help manual on how to manifest your dreams, get rich quick or find the love of your life then search elsewhere. What is offered here is pure non-dual truth- the Divine dwells within Us, As Us, all around Us as Everything in both the seen and unseen Universe. This exquisite book reminds me of the story that Divinity often hides ultimate meaning and fulfillment in the last place we think to look- within the human heart."

Product Description

The Red Speck is an allegorical journey into the self. At face value, it's the tale of Sophie who awakens to find herself on a deserted beach, with no memory of how she arrived nor any idea how to find her way home.

Sophie arrives in an alternate world populated by ghosts from her past, a fallen angel with a slow Southern drawl and a quick temper, as well as a beautiful woman who may, or may not, be the mother of all creation. Aided by a handsome young man and a band of demigods, she embarks on an esoteric adventure to correct psychological damage accrued over the course of a lifetime. Sophie needs to move forward and conquer her past in order to create the future she desires.

"BEST OF 2012"--Kirkus Reviews' Best Books of the Year

“A captivating love story”—Lisa Oliver Monroe, Kirkus Magazine

“Detailing how family dynamics, cultural diversity and past relationships shape who we are, debut novelist Hiatt subtly explores the cavern between a successful life and a meaningful one . . . An exceptional first effort that captures the harmony of two beating hearts.”—Kirkus Starred Review

Ever watched a man fall in love from the inside, a man really kicking and screaming, fighting it all the way? Our hero is a wealthy, arrogant businessman, a real beast to work for, and his new assistant, Kate, would have no problem sewing a trout or two into the lining of his coat. But there's something about her, something he can't quite grasp, and he watches her with hooded eyes, attempting to understand how she upends his world with a button and a bit of thread. A button is such a little thing, yet unraveling its mystery will send them both on a journey from San Francisco to the urban jungles of Brazil, setting a collision course with a murderer, a kidnapper, and a thief.

Ever watched a man fall in love from the inside? It's complicated, scary, and definitely funny.

Warning: The hero and heroine do not hate each other on page one and tear their clothes off on page three. There is no mention of the "ice around his heart," or any character's "crumbling walls," because, really, who talks like that. There may be some laughing since life is actually hilarious. There may be a little crying too . . . oh, and don't be bothered should there be a tiny bit of death and dismemberment, a touch really, hardly any at all. Just so we're clear.
