The Dark Path (The Legacy Chronicles)

The Dark Path (The Legacy Chronicles)

Product Description

A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel from USA Today and Amazon #1 best seller, Luke Romyn.



"The 21st Century's Newest Master-of-Horror... Rivaling both Stephen King and Thomas Harris, without doubt, the edgy and provocative Luke Romyn is destined to emerge as the 21st century's newest Master-of-Horror." -- Dee Marie - Award-winning author of the Sons Of Avalon saga.

The thrilling precursor to Luke Romyn's incredible Legacy Chronicles series.





New York's underworld quivers at the mention of his name. Evil courses through his veins like blood, and his conscience has lain dormant for over a decade while he has slashed and burned his way to the top of the food chain.

Vain.

The Dark Man, born of torment into an existence of death. In the underworld of killers he reigns supreme. And yet he is chosen for a task of supreme benevolence. Why would he be selected to save a young boy, the Avun-Riah, and then protect him against a horde of enemies, both mortal and demonic?

Because he is the only one with any hope of success.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have risen from the pits of Hell and, along with a fanatical army of cultists, are ranged against Vain. If the boy is slain, Sordarrah will be raised to destroy the Earth, a feat even Lucifer never managed.

Armageddon sits upon the horizon and all that stands in its way is a man whose path has always been dark....

#1 KINDLE BEST SELLER in VIGILANTE JUSTICE!

". . . hits you like a hook to the liver, and addresses the timeless issues of murder, revenge, and the human yearning for justice . . . a witty thriller, full of passion and suspense . . . virtually impossible to put down." - John Locke, New York Times best-selling author

Montreal, the long, hot summer of 1996, and in the dark of night, moving like a shadowy wraith, a vigilante prowls the city's streets. The targets of his bloody rampage, the worst of the worst; murderers, gangbangers, rapists... Six months, sixteen murders and the harried police are still without a clue, until they receive an email from the assassin himself. Lieutenant Dave McCall, head of Montreal's Special Homicide Task Force, needs help to crack the secrets of the killer's taunting message. He calls on an expert, Chris Barry, who runs a security firm specializing in computer communications. Together, McCall and Barry launch a grim quest to track down a man who preys on predators - an urgent quest to bring this remorseless killer to justice. But whose justice will prevail? Theirs, or the Vigilante's?

". . . probably the best mystery/thriller book I have ever read . . . The last sentence made me shiver with delight." - Tiffany A. Harkleroad, "Tiffany's Bookshelf"

Dominant Species Volume Three -- Acquired Traits

Dominant Species Volume Three -- Acquired Traits

Product Description

Spanning a millennium, the Dominant Species Series is a panoramic story of human and alien species locked in mortal conflict. Against this backdrop of deadly biological rivalry, humankind will fight an inner battle whose outcome is as final—and as brutal—as natural selection itself.

Volume Three – Acquired Traits

It is the year 3014. A pivotal battle looms.

Branded as murderers and forced into hiding in the jungle planet’s deepest recesses, pilot John Soledad, biologist Rachel Sanders, and medic Donna Applegate survive on their wits, frequent field remedies applied by Donna, and late-night raids on the colony’s storage warehouses for needed supplies.
While the trio struggles to survive, another threat—one more virulent than the jungle’s life forms—threatens the very survival of the new colony. Rachel’s venom-induced visions are telling her something—revealing the terrible nature of the danger—and awakening memories of things and events ancient, dark and monstrous.

Your Path to Publication

Your Path to Publication

Product Description

Your Path to Publication will help you on the long and sometimes bewildering journey from writer to published author. Kim Wright shares insights from her own successful publishing journey, from getting your manuscript in the best possible shape while building social networks, to finding the right agent and negotiating the complex process of selling your book, to working with your editor and publisher. Since today’s writers are expected to participate in marketing their work, she also outlines the many ways writers can reach readers and help their books find the broadest possible audience. Self-publishing is discussed, along with the advantages and pitfalls of working with a small press or a larger publishing house. But what really sets Your Path to Publication apart from most writing guides is that Wright explores the emotional part of the journey, and how self-doubt, disappointment, and envy can strike at any point in the process, while also offering sympathetic but sound council on how writers can persevere in the face of these inevitable challenges.

Surfing the Middle East: Deviant Journalism from the Lost Generation

Surfing the Middle East: Deviant Journalism from the Lost Generation

Product Description

Major in political science. Graduate with honors. Fail to find a job. Go surfing in the Middle East.

Rogue journalist and self-admitted California wave junky Jesse Aizenstat couldn't find a real job after college. But his two passions, Middle East politics and surfing, seemed like a good fit for a freelance gig. What the hell? Why not surf from Israel to Lebanon?

His Jewish background may have earned him a free flight to Israel, but it wouldn't give him a pass to surf in Hezbollah-controlled South Lebanon. Even navigating the tangled towns and streets of his ancestral homeland wouldn't be a cakewalk. But then again, this dyslexic writer with a maddening lust for annoying truths wasn't looking for easy, he was looking for real.

From Day One, the signs of violent conflict are everywhere: rocket craters, barbed wire, tear-gassed protesters, gunfire, and night patrols. But finding a shoreline touched by the best swell in the Med proves a welcoming counterpoint to the tension. Trouble is, peace, like riding a perfect wave, never lasts long. Turns out you can't just surf from Israel to Lebanon. You gotta take an air/land route. Over an inland desert. Through freaking Syria.

Other than hatred, the same surf report, and the desire to blow each other to smithereens, Israel and Lebanon seem to share little else. Like Aizenstat, they are political, cultural, and generational misfits in search of control over their identities and destinies.

The author calls 'em like he sees 'em, and goes along for the ride. It gets a little deviant, a little insane, a little frightening, but in the end is fully satisfying. You couldn't ask for a better ride.

*****

"A rip roaring adventure—both entertaining and educational—through some of the Middle East's hottest danger zones."
—Reza Aslan, author of No god but God

“A true artist. A great story. And in a volatile region that’s juxtaposed with something as irreverent as surfing? Yes. It’s a damn masterpiece!”
—John Stoessinger, former Acting Director of Political Affairs at the United Nations, Special Advisor to President John F. Kennedy, Holocaust survivor

“A journalistic smackdown from an unlikely hero. An absolutely fresh and eye-popping look at a Middle East few Westerners ever see, much less seek out and dive into with a semi-reckless abandon.”
—Scott Hulet, Editor, The Surfer’s Journal

“Watch out! Here comes a recent college grad who will take you to places in the Middle East you don’t hear about on CNN. He’s witty, funny, and outrageous, and has a little Mark Twain stuck in his blood. Never has such a journalistic stunt (with surfing!) produced such insights into what The New York Times calls ‘the world’s most combustible region.’ The only question for young Aizenstat is what’s next?”
—Linda Buzzell, The Huffington Post

Days of Déjà vu

Days of Déjà vu

Product Description

Born land-locked six hundred miles from the nearest ocean, this is an autobiography of an ordinary man with an extraordinary dream of building a sea going yacht and sailing the world.

Opening on the threshold of wild transition in South Africa in the 1970s, the author and his American wife struggle to build a sailing vessel on the outskirts of Johannesburg, whose skyline soon erupts in black clouds of fire and revolution.

Through all the struggles of personal relationships, exodus, poverty, sorrow, and loss, the dream of the sail remains constant. As that dream becomes reality, the story tells of an inexperienced crew battling rough seas, mind numbing calms, near death experiences, solo sailing for thousands of miles, land adventures with distant south sea tribes, and through it all, a constant wonder and appreciation of the amazing world we live in.

There are lessons to be learned from the author's homespun philosophy, honesty, and mistakes, as well as a wealth of sailing facts and accounts of the fascinating places the author and crew visit, all woven together in an amazingly vivid account of this decade long adventure through the oceans of the world.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A GLOSSARY OF SAILING TERMS AT THE BACK OF THE BOOK FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE.

NOTE:

I will do free Google+ Hangouts for any readers or book clubs that are interested in purchasing and reading my book - look me up on Google+ and we can schedule a time to talk about sailing, travel, and anything else in the book!

Yseult: A Tale of Tragedy in the Age of King Arthur (The Pendragon Chronicles Book 1)

Yseult: A Tale of Tragedy in the Age of King Arthur (The Pendragon Chronicles Book 1)

Product Description

"Gripping historical fantasy!" "Simply epic!"



For the price of a truce, Yseult is sent to a world where magic is dying - to marry the father of the man she loves.

5th Century Britain is a land on the brink of war. Abandoned by the once great Roman Empire, it must see to its own defense. Under the leadership of Arthur, the kings of Britain fight to push back the Saxon hordes and save what is left of civilization.

The Pendragon Chronicles tell the Arthurian legends re-imagined through what little is known of the historical details of the era. Here is no chivalric society of knights and ladies; here, the battles are real and gritty, love is mixed with lust, and it is not a given that the good survive.

This epic retelling of the tragic legend of Yseult and Drystan plays out against the backdrop of a violent world threatening to descend into the Dark Ages. As a member of the Old Race of Ireland, Yseult could act as a bridge between the old age and the new - but will the price be too high?

What readers are saying about The Pendragon Chronicles:

- "This book is simply Epic! Not only for the length of it (came as a shock after reading novellas for a while!) but also for the amount of history, information and detail given." Review of Yseult by Marissa.

- "For those who like a strong historical component in their historical fiction. Yseult is fully realized as an Irish princess, with a component of "powers" totally appropriate to the myths of Ireland and Arthurian tales. This story made even some of the less likely parts of the tale seem not just plausible, but inevitable." Review by Cary.

- "The book is much more than a love story. It is truly an epic, exploring the conflicts between paganism and Christianity, political maneuvering between the various kings of Britain and Ireland, the wars between themselves and with the Saxons, and a lot more. It reminded me a bit of The Mists of Avalon, although Yseult was much more fun to read." Review by Kriti Godey.

A #1 bestseller in Arthurian fantasy and an international success, with translations into German, Italian and Dutch.

The Fishers of Paradise

The Fishers of Paradise

Product Description

"unputdownable!" Susie Moloney, author of The Thirteen

As Egypt Fisher learns, there's a power to be mined in keeping secrets, and lies quickly take on a life of their own.

1930. The boathouse community of Cootes Paradise is under siege. The squatters' shacks that line the shores of Dundas Marsh stand in the way of an ambitious politician's "City Beautiful" plans. When a handsome drifter settles there, Egypt Fisher and her mother both fall under his spell. No one expects Egypt's gambling con-man father to return after a mysterious six-year absence. But he does and he's furious. Unhinged by jealousy and a harrowing brush with the local mafia at a cockfight, he reveals a family secret that sets Egypt's world off-kilter and poisons her relationship with her mother. When Egypt tries to turn the situation to her own advantage, her lies set in motion a series of events with devastating consequences.

The Fishers of Paradise is a story about choices and consequences, and a family pushed to the edge. In striving to cope with the emotional fallout from decisions made in the past, as well as all that fate and circumstance level at them, the Fishers discover that hope and love can thrive and families can reinvent themselves.




Praise for The Wind Seller:
"The novel is a literary page-turner, churning with thrilling scenes...seamlessly constructed."
-- The Globe & Mail

"The Wind Seller is carefully crafted and contains splendid descriptions of the Fundy coast and its communities...Ms. Preston is deft at creating a number of simultaneous plots and intricately detailed characters, smoothly moving her story to its completion without abandoning any of them along the way."
-- The Chronicle Herald

"a rollicking saga that's lusty and satisfying. . . .Preston has an adroit way with a plot; when she segues from one character's storyline to another, in the narrative's present day or in flashback, it is seamless. Her characters are believable, resilient and quirky, and her prose is thrilling."
-- The Hamilton Spectator

"A romance, a mystery, an intimate social drama, The Wind Seller is brimming with visceral dangers and lusts."
-- Andrew Pyper, author of The Wildfire Season and The Demonologist

Praise for Tent of Blue:

"Tent of Blue is an ambitious debut novel...Preston's rich and vivid evocation of the two main characters and their vastly differing milieus is crucial to the novel's themes: Yvonne and Anton's relationships with their mothers (not to mention their absent fathers) mirror one another, while the backstage sequences of Yvonne's music-hall past provide a fascinating counterpoint to Anton's furtive adolescent longings. Preston shifts easily between the two narrative strands, never allowing one to overshadow the other."
-- Quill & Quire

The story of a boy and his mother striving to create themselves as they learn to live heroically, despite the scathing violence of love. A novel that lingers long after the final page.
--Shauna Singh Baldwin, author of What the Body Remembers

His love interest, Emma Chapman, moves in different circles, is clearly from a world of economic advantage, and just happens to be white.

But his luck changes when he is paired with her for an end-of-term English assignment, and he hopes to flirt his way into her heart.

Emma never noticed Anton before the start of their project but quickly develops an attraction to him that is undeniable. Spending nearly every day together, they discover surprising similarities and sharp differences between each other that excite them and draw them closer until they embark on a secret romance.

“I will never forgive myself, Pollack,” Brauer told his neighbor and friend, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jack Kazmarek (retired). “I don’t think God will either.”

“We’ve all done things,” Kazmarek replied. “Especially in Vietnam.”

“We haven’t all done what I done.”

After Pete’s death, Kazmarek sets out on a quest to discover the relationship between Pete and the Eurasian girl in the photograph, Mhai, and to lay to rest the demons which haunted his friend throughout his life. The quest leads him back to Vietnam, a return that many combat veterans of Vietnam are making to old battlefields and old memories.

In the process of uncovering details of the romance between a Navy SEAL fighting in the Mekong Delta and the beautiful enemy he wounds and captures, Kazmarek must confront personal demons that he has also attempted to suppress since TET 1968 and the fighting that erupted around the VC village of Vain Tho. Although their paths had not crossed in Vietnam, the Navy SEAL Brauer and the army infantry platoon leader Kazmarek had fought in the same area of operations, against the same warlord of the Delta, the mysterious Commander Minh.

Kazmarek finds himself re-living old nightmares of the horrors of war in Vietnam. Drawn inexorably back to Vain Tho and to what occurred there over three decades previously, he finds that his path and Pete’s must have crossed after all--in Vain Tho during a battle in which both men had “done things.” He finds himself not only confronting the past, but also reenacting it when Commander Minh, now also an old man, emerges to even the score.
