Troubled Waters by Jon Wakeham

Product Details "Troubled Waters" by Jon Wakeham.

This story about an early James Bond type character develops an interesting plot amongst a satisfactory balance of real and imaginary events, places and people. Wakeham has done a masterful job of recreating what to me felt like a very accurate reflection of life amongst the well-connected of London in 1909. At times I felt that I could have been reading a contemporary writer to Conan Doyle, E.M. Forster, or Lord Dunsany, only to be deterred…

Flavors Beyond Even a Good Restaurant

Living in Northern California I have many options for good, authentic Mexican food. However, reproducing some of the more complicated items at home can be a challenge. With regional variations and a different version of common recipes between each family, molé and other things can be tough to tackle on your own.

Crumbs on the Stairs written and Illustrated by Karl Barckstrand

This is a bilingual book with English writing translated to Spanish on the same page. In a country were many people speak Spanish this book could help teach the English language to both the Spanish speaker’s children and to their parents. It could also help teach non-Spanish speakers a foreign language.

The story in this book goes from one room to another, or from one person to another, as the readers are shown trails of crumbs leading everywhere. Meanwhile, the narrator asks where…

From Spice to Eternity by Yvonne Pat Wright

This is an excellent mix between spices and the meaning of our Savior’s gift to us. This is an excellent book that puts together the pure and true love of our Savior without overdoing it. The writing is fluid and especially simple, so everyone can understand. It is the kind of book that inspires you to get out of bed in the morning and do some good.

The book is beautifully crafted to contain Yvonne’s personal stories and how they have inspired her to be closer to the Lord. The stories…

In Defense of Being Me

Last night, before watching a movie with my husband, I checked

my Facebook. I was happy to see the great feedback concerning my first blog post.

After all, I never intended on doing such a thing but surprisingly found some

sort of satisfaction from the process. As I scrolled down the news feed, I saw

that someone I knew posted a link to the blog. How sweet! I then noticed that

some man felt the need to bash my potty mouth. Yep, I knew it was going to happen.

Summer's Journey - Reintroduced

Hi everyone!! 

I'm Summer and I'm writing a True Romance / Erotica series that I will confess is very closely based on my own adventures since my divorce about 18 months ago or so. 

I have learned a lot about myself, my re-awakened sexuality and life in general.

AIRS & VOICES, a book of poetry by Paula Bonnell

MY PERSONAL LAWYER IS ALSO a writer of crime thrillers. I can deal with that, most people need a day job, and he finds his material in his cases. Now here comes Paula Bonnell, a practicing lawyer who writes poetry. So where to start? I tried reading these poems as if I did not know that they were written by someone with “esquire” after their name. Then I remembered that Wallace Stevens was also a lawyer, albeit a corporate one.

Ms. Bonnell’s…

Col Bury starts new series with Trestle Press/Dark Pages Press

Here is what you can expect:

Manchester 6 focuses on the best and worst of human nature, personified in the gritty urban setting of Manchester, UK, and featuring a plethora of no-nonsense characters you’d ordinarily want to avoid.  The six stories highlight generally decent folk who become embroiled with the lower echelons of society, aka scumbags.  Whether it’s the paranoid, spliff-sucking writer who has a falling-out online, or an ex-soldier hunting a notorious…

What I look for in an author

I get asked a lot of questions. One of the them is, ”What do I look for in an author?” I mean really as a reader, what are the things that draw you to pick up an author’s material and become a fan, stand by them time after time, and just proclaim your loyalty for eternity? Here are some of my thoughts, the yardstick by which I measure the authors, size them up, and just say hit me, I can’t wait till I get that read of yours in my hand:

-A really cool name, something that just sticks…
