Spirit of Christmas

Tags Requested

Spiritual growth, Christian living, Christmas

Description

The Christmas season reawakens the desires and encouragement to give of oneself and to help others in need. This anthology includes fifteen inspirational and contemplative stories, written over the past couple of decades to follow themes of the Christmas cards the author crafted herself to send to friends and relatives. They provide an opportunity for those conflicted in various ways or swept up in the hustle and bustle of holiday routine to pause, contemplate, grasp, and be heartened and set in motion by the true spirit of the season. These stories share an element of unexpected gifts or struggling to “catch on” to what the season is all about and are great mood lifters for those who feel overwhelmed or marginalized by the commercialism and consumptiveness of Christmas.

Vincent van Gogh, fiction, family

Description

Imagine Vincent van Gogh in our modern world.

Suppose, during the last year and a half of his life, when he severs part of his ear and commits himself to the insane asylum, he stumbles into the very circumstance he has longed for his entire adult life — a family. Would his life change for the better, or would his self-destructive tendencies again prevail?

Van Gogh, Encore is a speculative novel based upon the last year and a half of Vincent van Gogh’s life.

Set in the United States, the tale presents an alternative dimension to the complex and fascinating artist who died impoverished and unappreciated … while the images he created went on to have global impact, and can be found on everything from vodka bottles to vehicle dashboard covers, television commercials to t-shirts, and whose original works now sell for millions of dollars.

Flashing My Shorts

Tags Requested

Flash fiction, short-short stories, variety

Description

Salvatore Buttaci masters the short form in his new collection Flashing My Shorts.  The stories here are spare but powerful, and each is injected with Buttaci’s quick wit, sharp insight, and the sort of emotional depth that causes a reader to pause, for just a moment, before reading on, wanting more.
– Jen Knox, Author of Musical Chairs

Writing stories under 1,000 words is certainly challenging. Called flash fiction, micro-fiction, sudden fiction, and postcard fiction, these quick writes have become quite popular today. They succeed in accommodating readers on the go who lack the luxury of sitting down for long periods of reading. Like patrons at a smorgasbord, they can taste a little of this fine dish and a little of that. They can leave the table without fear of being still hungry.

“With dry humor and a deep sense of irony, Salvatore Buttaci has delivered a book of sparkling gems. These quick stories make us laugh, think, and at times cry. They take us to the core of reality and at other times to the wonders of fantasy.”
-Kenneth Weene author of Widow’s Walk

Lord Arkus of Blackriver Castle readily admits that he is a villain and sees no reason why it should stop him from being the protagonist of this book. After all, Prince Kellemar, an aspiring hero, has defeated him in a rather questionable way. Bent on revenge, Arkus attempts to capture a powerful evil spirit who would make him nearly invincible, but a last-minute mistake leaves him with a sparkling instead a goody-goody spirit that helps heroes, watches over little children, and messes up villains plans. Bound to Lord Arkus for five years of service and sworn to act in his best interests, the sparkling is not easy to get rid of, and of course his understanding of best interests is quite different from what Lord Arkus has in mind. –This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

V2036: 21st Century Politics in a Militaristic Venezuela

Tags Requested

VENEZUELA, HUGO CHAVEZ, BOLIVARIAN REVOLUTION

Description

v2036 brings entertainment and cohesion to an otherwise depressing and incomprehensible subject: Venezuelan politics. Through the lives of three resolute men that represent the country’s warring factions, the story boldly illustrates that leading the people of a volatile South American nation is anything but an easy task.

A military ruler, an opposition activist and an expatriated citizen will play the famous (and infamous) roles that will lead the once proud nation to a brighter future . . . or to its final demise.

Taking historical events as a starting point, v2036 pushes the boundaries of fiction with delightful characters in pivotal roles that will alter not just the way that these events enfolded, but the influence they had in the current socio-political climate of the controversial Bolivarian Republic. As the timeline advances, the story flows through the Venezuela that was to the one that is, and to the one that it might become in the not so distant future, always highlighting the rivalry that divides the most influential sectors of today’s Venezuelan society.

Blood is Pretty: A Fixxer Adventure

Tags Requested

hollywood, comic thriller, pulp fiction

Description

Meet the Fixxer – with wit and aplomb he works the fruitful fields of Hollywood fixing the sins and correcting the stupidities of the denizens therein. In Blood is Pretty he comes to the rescue of “the most beautiful woman I have ever seen” to extricate her from the grip of the soul-sucking sexual desires of a producer born in slime, and takes on the task of buying off with money and muscle a film geek who won’t cooperate with a director of minuscule talent who simply wants to claim “V” — the geek’s “Holy Grail” of a film treatment — as his own.

When the film geek is discovered dismembered, the Fixxer is compelled to know why and finds worlds of evil, both real and virtual, centering around a computer program called Veritas, which has the potential of making its owner the richest and most powerful human on Earth.

With the aid of Roee, his friend, companion and cook who can kill quickly and silently in several different ways; the Captain, officially with the Los Angeles Police Department, unofficially with the Fixxer; Petey, extraordinarily brilliant and comically strange; and “the most beautiful woman I have ever seen,” the Fixxer goes forth to do battle.

Praise for Steven Paul Levia & Blood is Pretty

“Steven Paul Leiva takes a dash of James Bond, the ghost of noir, a splash of Hollywood and stirs it into Blood is Pretty, an adventurous, fast-paced first novel.” —Melodie Johnson Howe, Edgar-nominated author of The Mother Shadow

“Blood is Pretty is a light, breezy page turner that actually had me laughing out loud. The Fixxer is an engaging character and so are the supporting characters around him. After reading Blood is Pretty I wanted to devour more of the adventures of the Fixxer.” — Peter Anthony Holder, Host, Holder Overnight, CJAD, Montreal

Editorial Reviews

The Fixxer has the mystery of the Shadow, the sophistication of James Bond and the street smarts of Sam Spade.” — Stuart Nulman, Book Banter/CJAD, Montreal

Fixxer is a fascinating character. Intrugue; murder; mayhem in a fast paced action filled adventure. A truly great first novel. — E. V. Le Roux, Silver Moon Magazine

  1. Is Your Version Of Reality Just An Illusion

    “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one”
    Albert Einstein

    How do we know that the version of the world we think we are living in now is real?

    We can’t rely totally on our perception of what real is. We need some hard facts to back up what our instincts are leading us to believe.

    I’m not talking about the kind of reality you perceive because of your inhibitions, or the taboos you accept as gospel. I’m not talking about the kind of reality that has your imagination running amuck. I’m talking about the real thing whatever that is, or is all this just an illusion.

    Don’t swear on a star that hurricanes and floods are real. Maybe they are only images of the fear mechanism we live with. Maybe the truth is that in some ways we cherish the dark side. Maybe we invented terrorism as an escape from a boring reality. Maybe there is no threat. Maybe we are only bit players in some Game Master’s virtual reality game. How do you know that any of this is real?

    Are we wandering aimlessly in a barren desert inventing a lush landscape, a wonderful family, and the bounty of a full table merely to blind us to how stark and forbidding our world really is?

    Somehow we must discover the truth about ourselves. Is this our real environment? Somehow we must learn to live with the truth. Maybe it’s not as bad as some of us fear. Maybe the illusion we live in is as real for us as it is going to get.
    Let’s hope that a beautiful blooming rose bush out there in the front yard is really not a monument to the rotten carcass of a former life.

    Let’s hope for the best and try and comprehend that our concept of God is based on something we cannot see or understand.

    Maybe what we do see and think we understand is not half as good as the real thing. Perhaps there is no reason to fear the miracle of a wonderful future we cannot even envision.
    Maybe what we think we see is not as good as it is going to get.

    Maybe there is more, more than we can possibly imagine: more beauty, more love, more happiness, and more peace and security than we can conjure up as a worthwhile real image of the world in which we live.

    Hi, this is Arthur Levine, the author of the novel Johnny Oops. Please join us in a quest to determine what is real and what is illusion at http://johnnyoops.blogspot.com.
