A Breath Floats By

Tags Requested:

Contemporary, Reincarnation,  Spirituality

Description

What would you do if you realized you married your best friend’s soul mate? If your sacred work petrifies you with consequences that you glimpse from past lives? But what becomes of your soul group if you do not keep your promise this lifetime?

A Breath Floats By is an astonishing, gentle love story examining strong currents beneath the thin veneer of modern life. Where the reader is barely aware they walk at the edge of the Veil of Life.

Lindsay realizes she has reached the age when one gets away with nothing. She is terrified to begin her true life work and faces the death of her husband, Sam. She is taken underwing by someone she would rather not know, then becomes aware the woman is vying for Sam’s heart. Beyond forgivable. Through it all, Lindsay realizes her soul group needs her more than she needs them, especially her husband’s best friend, Daniel.

Lindsay, Heather Laurel and Gooee. Strong, genuine characters well over forty, dealing with divorce, security, forgiveness, faith and death. Each finding their greatest challenge is the raw honesty required to face the complexity of their love affairs.

Within a timely romance of lifetimes anew in the Great Lakes Region’s Door Country, a swirling spiritually-charged world is exposed.

Comparable light metaphysical vein, such as the movie Dragonfly with Kevin Kostner, or August Rush. Friendship fiction light with humor, example being Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood.

During our era of spiritual awakening, despite belief in reincarnation, readers exploring transformation and soul-growth may never again view a coincidence in the same light.

A Breath Floats By. Where spiritual answers sometimes come with unrelenting force.

Description

Shannon Mallory was a woman on the run….not from outside forces but from her own wounded heart. When she pulled up into the parking lot of The Last Resort Café, in the town of Sanctuary, little did she know she would find the one thing she never even knew she was searching for….true love.

Seth Proudfoot wasn’t looking for anything, except an end to his miserable existence. Accused of a crime he couldn’t remember committing, he was ostracized by a town that, ironically, bore the name of the one thing he could never find….Sanctuary.

When the two meet, neither can ignore the magnetic pull between them, but will Shannon allow her damaged spirit to trust a man…a man who may have murdered his own family?

Though Shannon is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, it is her spirit that breaks down the iron-clad shield around his heart. Their desire burns hotter than the Arizona desert, threatening to melt the very mountains that loom like silent Gods above their heads. But can their love survive a betrayal that could very well cost them both their lives?

Lessons from an Evil Mind

Dark fantasy, horror, thriller

Description

My life is something that I
have always cherished. But for
the past three years is something that I pray will fade.
My body is weak and my soul weaker, and I find myself unsure
how much more pain and torture I can take.
Often I wonder what my life would be like if I had allowed someone
to be with on my wedding day. Would I be with the one I love? Or
has it always been my destiny to live with the evil that now binds me
to this dungeon?
All questions that may never be answered.
My body cringes as once again I hear the footsteps of my captor.
He is coming closer to the door! As fast as my weakened body will
allow, I run to the middle of the room to take my position. This is not
an option; you must be sitting on your knees, hands tucked within
your lap, and head faced down. If you are not in this position, you will
be taught a lesson . . . a lesson you don’t want to learn.
His hot breath on my neck indicates that I have broken a rule.
My body and mind – now in complete fear; I sit and await the wrath
I know he is about to put upon me.
The silence, unnerving, is more then my mind can handle.
Screaming only within myself, I leave my fear unseen, unheard.

Shawna Lynn takes readers on a ride filled with the stark realism of abuse, hope, and survival. It is a story that tells us that there is good in the world, and that the human spirit, despite its many set backs, will always triumph in the end.

Over the course of the trial, Alex must battle his way through jury tampering and a malicious computer hacker to find out who is telling the truth.

Virgin Blood

horror, horror novel, terror

Description

“Janie is one of the best fictional characters I’ve come across in a long time — beaten but not broken, earthy yet innocent, a thoroughly modern saint. . . . at the end of the book, I almost broke into tears. And you have the stylistic sophistication to be able to blend gritty realism and outright magic and pull it off. In short, VIRGIN BLOOD is a marvelous book.” — Dave King, Dave King Editorial Services http://www.davekingedits.com

“Stop it, Dewie,” Marilyn said. “You can’t treat people like this.” Dewie shoved Mrs. King Kong to the side and pushed his face right up to Marilyn’s. “Let’s get one thing straight right now. I. Can. Do. Whatever. The. Hell. I. Want.” He lightly slapped her upside her head, knocking her against the wall, sending several more pictures falling to the floor. She tried to stand up straight, but winced and remained stooped forward. “I promised you’d be first, and I aim to keep my promises. Hell, I’m near about ready for you. I ain’t had no pussy since I raped Janie last night.” “I knew it was you,” Marilyn said. If you’re like most readers, you hope to find 4 things in the novels you read: 1. Heroes you love to love. 2. Villains you love to hate. 3. Nerve-ripping suspense. 4. A heart-squeezing, unforeseen conclusion. If do like imaginative elements intermixed with nitty gritty reality . . . if you like Stephen King . . . if you like Dean R. Koontz . . . you’ll enjoy VIRGIN BLOOD. To the late-night ER staff struggling to save her life, Janie Braxton one more big city crime victim. But to the spirit of an ancient Native American chief who once reigned supreme over the middle of pre-Columbian North America, she’s an incomplete sacrifice holding the key to regaining his long-lost power. Pursued by Janie’s rapist Dewie and his gang, her two small daughters trek through the mean streets of St Louis . . .

A man wraps his car around a lamppost. The next instant he’s looking down on his body lying in a ditch. He wonders why he doesn’t feel any pain… What follows are “300 spellbinding pages!”

Some reviews:

It’s intriguing to contemplate Law’s interpretations of scripture, ancient poetry and musings, and modern cosmology. An extraordinary puzzle audaciously put together! How he can sustain what is basically a stream of consciousness for 300 spellbinding pages reminds of Mozart’s tour de forces of weaving together four or more counterpoints.” (Kate Jones, Pasadena, USA.)

“It is fascinating to watch a man to—literally—give up the world for the love of a woman. Fascinating!” (Joanne Brown, Montreal, PQ.)

“Never has our subconscious been explored in such depths and discernment. It seems that our conscious mind is but a tip of a twelve-billion-year-old iceberg.” (Jim Mc Laughlin, Calgary, Alta.)

The Twiller

humor, science fiction, funny

Description

Ian Harebungler, our hapless hero, just can’t catch a break. First, the deli ran out of his favorite cucumber sandwiches. Then he left the gas on at home. But the lowlight was being abducted from his front yard by a particularly ill-mannered alien, one who apparently doesn’t believe in anesthetic, no less. Fortunately, Ian is saved by an unlikely ally: the Twiller, whose bravery is somewhat overshadowed by its uncanny resemblance to a floating yellow marshmallow with big eyes.

The Twiller follows the adventures of Ian and his newfound companion as they are whisked around the Universe, and Ian learns how difficult it can be to find his way home to a backwater planet called “Earth.” Along the way, Ian must survive the traffic of El Leigh, the enthusiastic protestors of Bez Erkeley, and rampaging politicians in the city of WMD. Even worse, he must contend with exorbitant prices in the city of York, endure the heat and crazy drivers in Fleur Ida, and struggle to escape the small planet of “Huh? Why E?” before he contracts island fever. Astute readers might pick up on subtle correlations to real places here on Earth, but my lawyers have reminded me to state that such resemblances are purely coincidental.

As it starts to dawn on Ian that the bizarre planets he visits suffer from many of the same problems, comical situations, and inane rules all too familiar to him, he stumbles upon an important secret that gives his quest to return home added urgency. Can Ian make it home? Will he arrive in time to prevent a terrible catastrophe? And can he find a flight without a Saturday night stopover? The answer lies with the Twiller…

Zellie keeps the knowledge of Avery’s future to herself and tries to act like any other teenager in love. When they get caught on their way to a secret rendezvous by her mom and his dad, they are forbidden to see each other.

Convinced that their parents are freaking out unnecessarily, Avery and Zellie vow to be together no matter what.

The visions are hereditary, they’re dangerous, and if they stay together the visions will come true.

With it come two extraordinary and dangerous surprises: a Wyrd Stone, its silvery heart a window into a world of dreams and nightmares, and a Blade Dancer, dreaded protector of the Faelands, who bears a dark message. Instead of celebration, Luthiel is given a terrible choice: if she does nothing, someone she loves deeply will die. Or to save a life, she can break the most perilous law of the Faelands, and venture alone to the Vale of Mists. If she chooses the journey, she must race Othalas — eldest and most feared of all the werewolves — past great back spiders who weave webs out of nightmares, through glittering mists with the power to reshape flesh, and at last into death by the teeth of dark and ancient Vyrl, who feed on the blood of elves. Either choice will bring death — unless Luthiel can find the secret in her remarkable Stone, a secret that even the nightmares fear.

Luther’s Song: The War of Mists

Fantasy, Elves, Magic

Description

She chose to die in her sister’s place and yet she lived. Luthiel, just 15 years old, made a brave peace with the dreaded Vyrl of the Vale of Mists. Now she must face an army sent to destroy them. With her companions — the werewolf Othalas, the dragon Melkion, the sorcerer Mithorden, a Vyrl named Ecthellien, and the elf Vaelros who would love her — Luthiel races back to the angry faelands to beg forgiveness for monsters. Who, if any, will survive the journey? For the Vale is surrounded by the webs of Widdershae, and the only other path leads to the Red Moon — where an ancient evil waits in the flames. Beyond the Vale, the home she left is not the same. Armies march for vengeance. Powers play their hands in a game of ages. In the sky something evil stirs. Rumors of a dark prophecy. Whispers of a “Blood Witch.” And signs foretelling an ancient doom terrible enough to destroy worlds.

She’s just graduated from Yale Law School and landed her first job when, one evening, during dinner with her fiancé, she feels a fist-like ball form at the base of her throat.

Tales from the Keeper of the Myths: Cherokee Stories for Children

American Indian, Native American, myths

Description

Storytelling was one of the most popular pastimes in the winter for both Native American children and adults. The Native American storytellers were superb actors. Flute music was played around the fires in the center of the huts or lodges and served as background music when the stories were told. The facial expressions, voices and gestures of the storytellers almost told the tale without words as they fascinated their listeners with amazing stories, tales of adventure and myths and legends of the magical days of long ago.

One of the sacred duties of the elders of the tribes was to hand down the traditions to the younger generations. Thus, the winter storytelling preserved the continuity of the Cherokee tribes by keeping alive their history and traditions. The best storytellers were highly respected by their people; not only were they entertainers, but also teachers, historians and guardians, or Keepers of the Myths.

The Basics & Intricacies of Arabic Morphology

Arabic, dictionaries and thesauruses, foreign languages

Description

Despite the amount of material about Arabic grammar, phonology, and morphology, the need for a book combining an independent study in morphology with theoretical discussions is more than evident. This book fills that void by proposing an in-depth analysis of various morphological issues based on the seven classes of verbs and their nine derivatives. These classical classes are the strong verb, the doubled, the hamzated, the verb with 1st radical w or y, the verb with 2nd radical w or y, the verb with 3rd radical w or y, and the verb that is doubly weak. The nine derivatives are the perfect, imperfect, imperative, infinitive noun, active participle, passive participle, noun of time, noun of place and noun of instrument. The different sections introduce several paradigms of verbs, a carefully explored data and explicit information about the morphological structures and the various phonological changes that can affect them, such as the addition, transfer or elision of a vowel or letter, the assimilation of two letters and the substitution of one letter for another. The study pays also particular attention to the most representative works from the 8th century until our days.

The Resurrection of Deacon Shader by Derek Prior

fantasy, epic fantasy, sword and sorcery

Description

Plague strikes at the heart of Sarum and flesh-eating mawgs have been seen in the sewers.

As Governor Gen struggles to save the populace, the Abbey of Pardes is attacked by an army of undead and a piece of the legendary Sun Stone is stolen from the Grey Abbot.

The holy knight, Deacon Shader, is sent to the plague-city to retrieve it, but he is a man with conflicts of his own, and a destiny that will test his faith to the limits.

If Shader should fail, the Sun Stone will fall into the hands of a being from the mists of pre-history who will harness its power to unweave all of Creation.

“Rich and varied, touching, maddening, and addicting. Elegant, polished, and believable characters in an amazing world.”

Archelle Baker (eBook Alchemy)

“Ever-widening in its scope – fearless in its telling.
I cannot help but be reminded of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, not just in the interweaving of time epochs and worlds but also in the author’s sheer fearlessness.
From earth to heaven to alternate worlds, the story is unrelenting in its incredible vision.”

David Dalglish (author of “The Half-Orcs” series)

“Complex and intriguing; intelligent and engaging; descriptive enough to invoke all senses.
The style is a nice mix–fast-paced and contemporary, yet with classical prose and imagery to satisfy those of us who love the ‘old masters’.”

C.S. Marks (author of “Elfhunter”)
