It's Zach's dream investigation- but there's a catch: the network forces Xavier Paranormal Investigators to partner with the more dramatic-but less ethical-Demon Hunters.

Troubled souls are indeed trapped there and despite their repeated warnings to leave, she's not going anywhere.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Deborah Hughes moved into a haunted house at the age of seven and lived there for seven scary years.

Her over-active imagination created problems for her on occasion but she focused some of that creative energy on writing stories. Naturally ghosts often factor into her story telling. Although a career in the Air Force derailed her author dreams temporarily, she's now back on track and eager to share the stories filtering through her head and out her fingertips!

The Seasoning of a Soul: When Comprehension Comes through Trial and Experience

The Seasoning of a Soul: When Comprehension Comes through Trial and Experience

Product Description

A spiritual odyssey that will open your heart.

Growing up in abject poverty, terrorized by a boarder who lived in the root cellar, Athena Demetrios repressed the memories, thrusting her into a downward spiral of melancholy and despair. Transcendence and healing would come through reliving the horrors of her past through hypnotic regression. A powerful spiritual experience opened doors into other dimensions, which began an odyssey where truth became stranger than fiction.

Her story of courage, mystical insight, and other-worldly guidance will open your heart and challenge your perception of the borders of our minds and the boundaries of our world. This is a tale of past-life visions, hypnotic regression, alien encounters, and spirit communication.

Traveling with her down the pathways and through the rabbit holes of a life lived in relentless pursuit of truth, no matter how strange it seems, will bring you, along with the author, into the radiant light of self-discovery, knowing, and being at peace with all that is.

“The Seasoning of a Soul is startling, intense, intelligent, and controversial. Athena Demetrios, takes us with her as she walks between worlds, and in the style of The De Vinci Code author Dan Brown, renders the reader incapable of putting the book down.”

—Dr. Janet Price

“As a former journalist who has written for Vanity Fair and O Oprah Magazine, for me, this compelling memoir is a must read. Athena Demetrios’s writing rivals her peers by its immediacy, heart grit and narrative drive. She writes with profound clarity, authority and candor, pulling no punches.”

—HeathCliff Rothman, Founder of Film Your Issue

“The Seasoning of a Soul is a sensitive, inspirational, and fascinating story of life, a look into pain and joy, fear and courage, and the beauty of a soul’s awakening. A must read for anyone on a spiritual search.”

—Linda Pendleton, Author

On Unfaithful Wings (Icarus Fell #1) (An Icarus Fell Novel)

On Unfaithful Wings (Icarus Fell #1) (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."

Obama Sutra - An Illustrated Guide To 57 States of Ecstasy

Obama Sutra - An Illustrated Guide To 57 States of Ecstasy

Product Description

Nearly 2000 years ago, The Kama Sutra was written by an unusually flexible Hindu named Vatsyayana. Little could this great man have known that his detailed descriptions of lovemaking would not only become the world's best-known sex manual, but eventually give birth to the chiropractic industry.

Today, Vatsyayana's work is being carried on by Barack Obama, who made history not for being the first Black President (an honor enjoyed by Bill Clinton), but for being the first President elected solely on the basis of sexual magnetism. Young, liberal, and open-minded voters didn't need a wink or a nudge to understand the bedroom connotations of "Yes We Can" or that "Hope and Change" was a thinly veiled reference to changing sexual positions. And "We are the ones we've been waiting for" might as well have been an engraved invitation to an orgy.

The Obama Sutra takes the words and deeds of Barack Obama and translates them into text and appropriately half-black, half-white illustrations which will allow adventurous lovers of all political persuasions to achieve the "57 States of Ecstasy" promised by the President.

Pleasurable positions include "The Audacity of Soap," "Leading from Behind," "Fast and Furious," "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," "If You Like It, You Can Keep It," "Piece Prize," "Stimulus Package," and many, many more.

Whether you agree with Barack Obama's politics or not, you must admit that no one has done more to arouse passions in living memory. No one has inspired more leg thrills and moans of satisfaction from the media. And no one has left so many Americans feeling screwed in such a wide variety of ways.

River Ghosts

River Ghosts

Product Description

From the author of The Widow's Son - a Kirkus Starred Review Literary Mystery:

Which is right: the eyewitness testimony of an eight-year-old boy or exculpatory DNA evidence?
Sixteen years after Richard Hill testified in court that he crouched under the kitchen tablecloth and saw Henry Clayton rape his white momma and murder her and his black poppa, a DNA swab earns the prisoner a pardon and his freedom. Returning to Red River Falls, Clayton claims that he has been reborn and offers to help Hill, now a patrol officer, identify who really killed his parents. Hill, who relives the family horrors every day, doesn't believe him. But how can he prove DNA evidence wrong? An ingrained distrust of everyone except Doria, the aunt who raised him, has led Hill to distance himself from his squad-car partner Jack Harter, and his mixed parentage has alienated him from members of both races. When he leans on radio reporter Sydney Brey for help, the search for truth puts Sydney on the railroad tracks as a train heads for her, leaves Auntie Doria bleeding on her bedroom floor and makes Hill the target of bands of good old boys with swastika tattoos. Ultimately, his childhood memories hold true but bring the disturbing possibility that the perfect science can be corrupted while racial enmity festers undercover.
The pseudonymous Robb, an attorney, writes with the chilling clarity of Alice Sebold. Read it and weep. (Kirkus starred review March 2008)


From ForeWord Magazine Reviews (May 2008) - Its frightening insight into the best and worst of men and their institutions, thoughtful intrigue, and superb attack upon preconceptions make River Ghosts a mystery devoid of coincidences or tidy endings, that will grip readers from the stunning opening to its powerful last page.

Flat Crazy (Blanco County Mysteries Book 3)

Flat Crazy (Blanco County Mysteries Book 3)

Product Description

"You'd have to be Flat Crazy to miss a Ben Rehder book. This guy is the funniest, freshest voice in Texas mystery writing today."
—Rick Riordan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lightning Thief

Flat Crazy:
An unidentified wild creature is on the loose in Blanco County, and, over the protests of game warden John Marlin, the locals have convinced themselves they're dealing with a mythical vampirish beast called a chupacabra. It doesn't help Marlin's cause when a dead body turns up with a fang-like wound in its neck. Then things really get out of hand: tabloid news programs invade Blanco, good old boys Red O'Brien and Billy Don Craddock develop a cockamamie get-rich-quick scheme involving the animal, and everyone is a little surprised at the booming population of voluptuous Chinese dwarves who've turned up in town. If anyone can make sense of the strange events, it's John Marlin, who's well-versed in the intricacies of small-town life, Texas style. But can he do it before another body turns up?

REVIEWS FOR FLAT CRAZY:

“Murderously funny…[Game Warden] Marlin’s job, as usual, is to keep a cool hand on a dangerously fraught situation. Rehder’s job, performed with similar skill, is to stand back and let it all work itself out.”
—Chicago Tribune

“Another of Rehder’s relentlessly twisted tales. Outrageous fun.”
—Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“Down-home humor that is both intriguing and entertaining.”
—Dallas Morning News

“The odd cast of characters and bizarre plots and subplots make for a rollicking good read.”
—Houston Chronicle

“The third and cleverest installment of Austinite Ben Rehder’s Blanco County Mystery series. Flat Crazy is pure, guilt-free pleasure for those who like their mysteries with a side order of weird.”
—Texas Monthly

“Rehder has a stable of characters and critters guaranteed to create havoc. Marlin’s quiet competency adds to the enjoyment, as he puzzles out this confounding mystery.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Rollicking good fun.”
—San Antonio Express-News

“Rehder’s clever storytelling skills, his expert comic timing and flair for characters have made this series shine. Rehder’s series works for both those readers who despise hunting as well as those who indulge in the sport. Rehder’s dark sense of humor serves him well as Flat Crazy has many laugh-out loud moments, punctuated by sharp dialogue and odd but believable characters. Flat Crazy‘s ending is the perfect mix of absurd humor and suspenseful action. Rehder doesn’t just write niche mysteries, he’s proving to be one of the genre’s rising talents with his twisted tales.”
—South Florida Sun-Sentinel

“Ben Rehder is back with the third installment of his Blanco County mystery series, and, once again, he’s brought the funny…well-drawn characters, genuine plot surprises, and ironic social commentary lift the series well above the connect-the-dots level. Flat Crazy is flat-out funny, and I can’t wait to see what [Game Warden] John Marlin gets into next.”
—Austin Chronicle

Escaping the Arroyo

Escaping the Arroyo

Product Description

2013 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards finalist
2013 eLit gold medal in True Crime
Rated #2 on list of "Top 25 Best True Crime Books" http://mysteryauthors.com/best-true-crime-books

On April 5, 1981, two college coeds were kidnapped from a residential street of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The next morning, the girls were found in a desolate mountain arroyo; one raped and murdered, the other savagely stabbed 33 times and left for dead. As fear engulfed the University of New Mexico's quiet campus, police had few clues to assist them in tracking down the vicious killer. This book is based on the true story of what happened that night in the Sandia Mountains, a shockingly brutal crime that changed the city of Albuquerque forever. It is a gritty tale of unspeakable violence and the relentless search for justice, but it is also the story of a young woman's incredible will to live ... and her life-long struggle to escape the legacy of that deadly arroyo.

True crime drama "Surviving Evil" will feature the "Escaping the Arroyo" story on November 5, 2015 on the Investigation Discovery Channel.

Undetectable (Great Minds Thriller Book 2)

Undetectable (Great Minds Thriller Book 2)

Product Description

In an underground garage in Manhattan, a group of trained killers have locked themselves in a van. They are discussing their next job: the murder of a scientist whose work could change everything about artificial intelligence. But the assassins are not concerned with technology; they care only about how they will catch this man off-guard, how they will throw him into the back of the van and put several bullets in his head.

It will be easy.

Less than a mile away, in a small private grade school on the upper east side, Kevin Brooks is getting ready to stop the assassins. He would probably be nervous, except that he is unaware of the task before him. Kevin believes he is a teacher, after all. He has none of the necessary training, none of the skills or experience.

He'll need to learn fast.

"A suspenseful thriller... Soutter keeps pages turning by enticing the reader with the intriguing details of Kevin's strange transformation... the action-packed final scenes alone are worth the price of admission."
- Kirkus Reviews

"Crazy good... intrigue, action, and a smidge of romance. Jackpot."
- Debbie McBee

"One of the more fascinating concepts for an action thriller in a long time."
- Richard Spitzer

"One of the best-written books I've read... good characterization, great plot."
- C. K. Oldham-Ott

Knock Knock

Knock Knock

Product Description

Finalist for a Shirley Jackson Award in the novel category.

"One of my favorite horror writers..." - Laird Barron, for Locus Magazine

"...more than a great read; it is a fascinating meditation on the nature of horror. There are supernatural elements to the book, yes, but the setting (an impoverished, ruined logging town) and the main characters (three school girls with hopes and dreams made improbable if not impossible by their realities) are a beautifully rendered commentary on the cyclical nature of real-world human tragedy." - Molly Tanzer, author of Vermilion

"Knock Knock is a powerful debut, opening strong and ending with a punch...one of the better weird horror novels of the past few years." - Justin Steele, Arkham Digest

"Beautifully written and relentlessly suspenseful, it's a great book to curl up with on a cold winter's night. Just be sure to keep the doors locked and all the lights on!" - Lucy Taylor, author of The Silence Between the Screams

At the center of S.P. Miskowski's novel-length fairy tale are three restless girls, best friends stuck in the backwater of Skillute, Washington in the late 1960s. Their neighbors and families are petty or poor, or both. They warn the girls not to go into the forest. Something evil lurks there, they say. During a playful oath, the girls wander too far and their mistake unleashes a malignant spirit that terrorizes Skillute for the next fifty years.


Iron Branch: A Civil War Tale of a Woman In-Between

Iron Branch: A Civil War Tale of a Woman In-Between

Product Description

Iron Branch explores cultural conflicts of the American Civil War era as experienced by those not often elevated to lead roles. Abita Carter, a half-Choctaw woman who describes herself as always “in-between,” tells the story of her life and that of the young lawyer/soldier, Minor Barrett, in north Louisiana during the Civil War. The core of the tale involves Abita’s journey to find Minor, who is reported to have been wounded during the siege of Vicksburg. Along the way she faces a cast of characters with varying intentions. General Grant’s wife, a family of slaves with compassion beyond reason, and a small blind mule are among those encountered in the rich, Deep South setting. None, though, is more distracting than Minor’s blue-blooded wife, who seeks her husband for a different purpose. Abita’s state of “in-between” takes on new meanings as she is drawn ever deeper into the turmoil of the times. Passion, self-doubt, and malice finally threaten her existence in any condition.

Keys to the Coven: A Hellfire Universe Romantic Urban Fantasy

Product Description

FUNNY, SEXY, FABULOUS
She's a witch who doesn't believe in magic. He's a demon who doesn't believe in purchasing souls. Get ready for Keys to the Coven, a tightly-plotted urban fantasy where karma is power, sex is karma, and it isn't who you know but whose soul you own that matters.

To become a demon, you must die in complete and utter despair. Three hundred years ago, Max passed that test with flying colors and joined the afterlife resolving never again to have innocent blood on his hands. Now Max has been given the job of breaking a young witch’s family curse. But what she doesn’t know, what Max can’t bring himself to tell her, is that completing his mission almost certainly means her death.

When Felicity Woodsen inherits her mother’s coven, she learns each firstborn Woodsen daughter must become the consort of an evil-arch demon. Felicity’s only hope is to ally with the mysteriously charming Max. But is saving her body from one demon worth risking her soul with another?

Roxashael became a demon when his Roman captors sent his family, one by one to be devoured by lions. The lesson was clear: power is good; lots of power is better. Two-thousand years later, Rocky has power. He's purchased hundreds of souls, and he's created the Minsk Homunculus, a magic artifact that, by binding a human witch as his consort, turns him into an arch-demon and places him above the goody-two-shoes laws of karma. Unfortunately, Rocky made a mistake. He fell in love with Felicity's mother and in a moment of weakness promised to give up his demon-consort charm. Now Felicity's mother is dead, the Minsk Homunculus is slated for destruction, and Rocky's power as an arch-demon is about to end. No demon can break a promise. If Rocky refuses to give up the Minsk Homunculus, he'll become the lowest, most abject slave in Hell.

But then, why break promises when they're so easy to corrupt?

The Furax Connection

The Furax Connection

Product Description

The last thing Louis Rosen expected of his son, Billy, was that he would volunteer for the draft after graduating from Harvard in 1949 with highest honors; and the last thing Billy expected of his father was that he would become a partner in a criminal enterprise known as "Furax Unlimited." Yet, when these two events unexpectedly collide and connect, Billy's life is changed forever.

The Furax Connection chronicles Billy's struggle for survival during his initial weeks in uniform when, unwittingly, he becomes entangled in a web of deceit and intrigue from which he must either extricate himself or suffer the shame and disgrace of a dishonorable discharge. That he survives at all is testimony not only to his resourcefulness and strength of purpose, but to his uncanny ability to forge relationships. And, as Billy struggles to survive, he discovers that, contrary to the civilian world of indifferent strangers he left behnd, the military is a close-knit family of good and decent people who unselfishly care for their own.

The Furax Connection has been endorsed by two retired generals and by the Chairman Emeritus of the prestigious Garand Collectors Association. It received a featured Book Review in the GCA Journal, a quarterly publication of the Garand Collectors Association which is sent to its 14,000 members worldwide. It was also selected by noted reviewer Alan Caruba, a charter member of the National Book Critics Circle, to be on his monthly list of the best in new fiction and nonfiction books for November 2009

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: After graduating from Harvard College, Steve Kanne served in the Army as an overseas military news reporter and editor. Following his discharge from the service, he attended Stanford Law School and then practiced real estate law for over three decades. Steve wrote one of the three winning short stories in the 2006 Stanford Fiction Contest (his short story, My Auntie's Wedding, is available online at the Stanford Magazine site). The Furax Connection is his first novel.

The Furax Connection is another great read from the shelves of Fireside Publications.

Nile River Woman: The Very First Poems by Kola Boof ebook edition

Nile River Woman: The Very First Poems by Kola Boof ebook edition

Product Description

Released for the first time in the United States, "Nile River Woman" (a 2004 Black History Month Selection) is the provocative poetry collection that got its author, Kola Boof, kicked out of Morocco in 1997 and threatened with death by her former lover, Osama Bin Laden, in 1998.

Widely regarded as a classic of Post-Colonial African literature, "Nile River Woman" (originally released as "Every Little Bit Hurts") tantalizes and engages the reader's imagination as Kola Boof uses conversational motifs, both political and sexual to conjure a dreamily erotic and angry bossa nova type landscape.

Most of Boof's most famous poems are collected here--including the scary but poignant "Fly Away Sleeping", the sweetly hopeful "Black Beauty's Totem", the understated but evocative "Ebrig: Gone Dry", the hauntingly triumphant "Bint il Nil" and countless other gems...from the freshly original "The Conquering Lion" (A poem honoring Malcolm X) to Kola Boof's inclusion of Queen Nefertiti's favorite menstration song--"The Written Words of Faceless Women"--which was originally sang in the 3rd Century B.C. by Black women of the Nile River Valley.

The 28 brand new poems that have been added to the collection (college radio favorite "I Love My Man" is included here) only further prove the viability and strength of Kola Boof's artistry.

Boof's willingness to flaunt a surprising vulnerability along with her trademark rage and sex tease infuses the book with a futuristic edge that only enhances an already solid and powerful anthology.

--Hans VolloKerk, Editor of the original version of "Nile River Woman" ("Every Little Bit Hurts").
