Jester KnightJester-Knight, by Joey Madia

 

 

Jester-Knight follows the teenage trials and triumphs of Alde, the son of the Jester of Glittereye, a kingdom barely three generations old. As the fledgling kingdom crumbles from within, Alde must balance the expectations of being named for the first and greatest of Jesters with the path to knighthood that is thrust upon him through the selfless and heroic deed of saving an Elf.

 

Filled with epic battles, fierce dragons, political intrigue, and grand adventure, Jester-Knight sets the stage for ever-expanding explorations of the world of Mynoweth in the 6-book series The Ambir Dragon Tales.

Review: 

“Joey Madia’s writing style in Jester-Knight, coupled with his imagination and depth of understanding, is precisely what our culture desperately needs: literature that empowers youth with the insight, courage, and wisdom much needed for undertaking the rites of passage into responsible adulthood where leadership is filled with heart and soul.” — The Fisher King Review

ValleyFeverVALLEY FEVER: Where Murder Is Contagious

 

27 award-winning stories set in the San Joaquin Valley by Sunny Frazier, JoAnne Lucas and Cora Ramos.

The only fiction mystery anthology highlighting this region of California. 

 

If you’ve read your Saroyan, you might think that the San Joaquin Valley is a gentle, peaceful place, where almost everyone is a good-hearted Armenian, and everyone is happy.

If you’ve ever lived there, you know that California’s Central Valley has a dark side, too, and it gets hot. . . and very deadly.

VALLEY FEVER is a collection of stories by three women who write about the underbelly of Fresno, the “All-American City,” and its surrounding areas. These award-winning authors combine their talents and their tales to present a collection of mayhem, murder, malice, and hot-blooded passion. Some of the stories are funny, some frightening, but all are wicked.

TheVoicePrintfront_mdThe Voice of Anton Bouchard

As the city of Paris swelters in the grip of a summer heat wave, a serial killer dubbed “The Butcher Beast” stalks the dark streets of the great metropolis, dispatching his victims with increasing brutality and savagery. Author Brian L. Porter goes deep into the mind of multiple murderer Anton Bouchard, revealing the thoughts and the events that have shaped the life of that most heinous of society’s misfits, the serial killer! This definitive collection of tales from the pen of the author includes a second tale of multiple murder in “Breathing to Death,” and also takes the reader beneath the ocean, beyond the stars, and deep into the cellars of an English country mansion. Finally, we are treated to a four chapter preview of Porter’s latest novel Under Mexican Skies. A truly remarkable journey through the mind of an extremely talented author!

Reviews:

 5.0 out of 5 stars Award Winning Material!!, June 28, 2009
By Barbara Watkins “Barbara Watkins” (Missouri)

What can I say about Brian L. Porter and his latest literary work known as ‘The Voice of Anton Bouchard’ other than to say in my opinion, it was a work of excellence! His works are known to provoke emotions of horror, terror and intrigue…and through ‘The Voice of Anton Bouchard’ {and other stories} the author managed to do just that.

I visited Paris in its darkest hour and traveled along side a psychopathic serial killer.

Aboard a submarine miles below the Pacific waves, I witnessed the destruction of the earth and mankind. I then took a journey along side detectives and participated in solving a murder.

I traveled through the Transylvanian Alps and ended up with ‘Bodies in the Cellar,’ only to find I had been abducted by Alien creatures no less!

Bravo to the author, Brian L. Porter, for giving his readers’ yet another five star experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Clever., June 26, 2009
By Ralph R. Deluca Jr. (USA)

The Voice of Anton Bouchard is a book of short, well written, and entertaining storys. I blew through the book in one short afternoon. The storys contain horror, brotherly love, natural disasters and more. You owe it to yourself to read it. Mr Porter has got me hooked.

     
5.0 out of 5 stars Get Ready to Enter the Twilight Zone, June 7, 2009
By     Martha A. Cheves (Charlotte, NC)

Short story “Red Sky in the Morning”… ‘Prior to surfacing completely, the submarine’s commander, Captain Simon Merrick had ordered the periscope raised, and he knew as soon as he put his eye to the scope that something wasn’t right. Although the submarine’s chronometer showed the time as eleven o’clock in the morning it appeared quite dark on the surface. There appeared to be an incredible red tinge to the outside world. While he tried to make some sense of what he saw his communications officer, Mike Regan had been trying without success, to make contact with the base at Rosyth.’

What Merrick and his crew didn’t know as their submarine surfaced from the deep waters was that they were about to “Enter the Twilight Zone.”

Enter the Twilight Zone yourself as you read “The Voice of Anton Bouchard” which will have you wondering why a serial killer suddenly stopped killing. Read “Breathing to Death” to see how and why women with medical problems are being killed. “The Sound of Silence” will have you traveling with a young lady, who after a wreck, is carried off to what could be nothing less than the castle of Dracula. These stories and many more that make up this book will carry you into the “Zone.”

Inclinations by David Harrington

Inclinations

 

Replete with angels and mythical creatures, Inclinations is a strange and allegorical mixture of poetry and prose.  Based on a series of mystical and esoteric visions, this collection of short stories and poems covers a wide variety of themes including faith, Judgment, mysticism and spiritual warfare.  With a bit of prophecy clouded in the metaphor of sacred language, one must decide where to interpret the text literally and where to interpret it figuratively.
