Coast to Coast

Tags

female detective, murder mystery, blackmail

Description

Retired FBI senior investigator Charlotte Diamond finds herself jetting from murder on one coast of the United States to kidnapping on another in attempts to save both her lover and her former husband. Charlotte follows her new-found companion, the leading movie actress, Brenda Brandon, to Hollywood. Brenda had abruptly abandoned Hollywood and the movies and returned to her hometown of Hopewell on the Choptank, on Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. But a cameo movie role she cannot turn down returns her to the scene of an old murder, for which she now is the leading suspect. Barely having dealt with that mystery on the West Coast, Charlotte is called back to Ocean City, Maryland, where her former husband and his new gambling casino have been targeted by the mob, and his new wife kidnapped.
Torn from West Coast to East Coast and thrown into the sphere of an even older and brighter flame than her former husband just when she had thought that her life was settling down, Charlotte is finding out that retirement looks a whole lot similar to when she was working on all cylinders at the FBI.

Canine Connections

Tags

Dogs, gay anthology, inspirational

Description

Canine Connections provides a compendium of five explorations of the bonding of a gay man and a canine sidekick. Four of these novelettes have been previously published; a fifth is a never-before-published bonus. My Dog Jack is the journey of a young man who wants nothing to do with a dog but learns that Jack becomes everything to him and helps make him into a better, more-giving person. In Dire Conditions, a young man searches against all obstacles to be reunited with his dog. Saving Cleo is about a man at the dimming end of his life, struggling to make sure that his faithful canine companion lives on in well-earned comfort after her master has faded away. In Tank ’n Bull, a semipro football player who has possibly been knocked in the head one too many times finds understanding and acceptance—and another being to care about beyond himself—in a dog he whimsically purloins and takes on a journey of futility. The bonus story, Amos’s Andy, is another journey story of a young man who is drawn into danger by his inability to let go of his attachment to the dog he has lost and his mistaken belief that life holds nothing worthwhile for him.
In various ways, all of these stories are of a man’s struggling journey for self-worth, self-assurance, and understanding—with his canine companion his side.

Surprise Encounters

Tags

Gay anthology, gay erotica, gay relationships

Description

I am not sure what to say to introduce this collection of twenty-four erotic short stories to you. None involves a motor mechanic, but one involves miners, and there is a barbarian in there. They all involve surprises, but some are surprises that occur in relationships and some are surprise sexual encounters with strangers. Some are wild and involve several men and some only two. Most are meant to be nothing but entertaining, yet a couple are very serious. Some were first written to entertain “him,” the man I most want to entertain and who inspires me as no one else does, and a few were not.

I think the best thing to say about this varied collection of stories is “may you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed them when I wrote them.”

Description

Stripped of his purpose in life and of belief in himself, the thirty-four-year-old Xavier Perdue has his world inverted by a shadowy knight, an elemental blue horse and the knight’s companion, Epsibar Sophia.

The unfolding events reveal the power of the individual spirit when pitted against the impossible, how personal transformation can shape the world. The small is like the great. The great is like the small. It is an aspirational tale, set in both future and past, lifted by the poetry of its telling.

More than two centuries had passed since the great Earl of Ravensmoor had whispered the phrase on his deathbed.

If he didn’t succeed in bringing the heart and soul of Kaitlyn home, the Ravensmoors would vanish into obscurity, lost in time.
He was unaware of the hidden promises whispered in the ancient deathbed phrase, or of the dreams that would torment him when he came of age.
The images of a woman and a life he did not know haunted him. She taunted him, drawing him into a gossamer web that left him unfulfilled and lost in a corrupt and modern world. He knew he had to find her, the woman capable of redeeming his cursed soul and granting him the love he sought.
Across an ocean, Kathleen Bennett knew the torment. Restless and responsible, her dreams are filled with the image of blue-eyed man that whispers seductive promises to her willing heart.

A time would come, when the souls of the past would collide….

Tarantula Woman

Tags

mexico, travel adventure, romance

Description

Located across the U.S.-Mexican border in Ciudad Juarez, Mariscal Street (otherwise known as the Boulevard of Broken Dreams) harbors Donald O’Donovan’s quintessential character, Jerzy Mulvaney, as he unsuccessfully courts the Tarantula Woman—a prostitute named Ysela with a tattoo of a tarantula on her left shoulder blade. She is just one of many women in one man’s unapologetic and aimless existence in Mexico where each day brings another round of whorehouses, drunken stupors, odd jobs, eruptions of violence and encounters with equally directionless individuals.

Not since Charles Bukowski’s Factotum has a transgressive autobiographical novel touched upon with such rawness the everyday realities of a modern-day American desperado. Yet somewhere in the midst of all the strident nihilism, O’Donovan’s alter ego, Jerzy Mulvaney, manages to stumble upon an ambition of sorts: to become a real Mexican. “I wanted to destroy whatever remained of my identity, my American identity; to melt down into a primal being, because the greatest thing is to be unknown, anonymous, and truly free.”

Rather than a work of fiction, Tarantula Woman is a refreshingly honest document that subtly addresses such essential subjects as life, love, death and the challenge of simply being.

In Nostraterra, the wars between the allied races of Elves, Men and Dwarves have ended; the Dark Lord Magnar has been overthrown. The Great Peace is suddenly shattered when Alfrahil, Crown Prince of Eldora is nearly assassinated. The King suspects his younger son Daerahil’s lust for the throne has taken a dark and deadly turn, ignoring all evidence to the contrary. Is Daerahil the architect of this terrible plot or is he an unwitting pawn on someone else’s chessboard?
In the forests of the Elves, it is whispered that Elven Prince Ferox plans to seize the lands of Nostraterra for himself. Aiding Daerahil and his allies, Ferox hopes to fuel a conflagration which will consume Eldora, leaving the lands of Nostraterra his for the taking.
Meanwhile, the Dwarves are wracked by deep divisions as the Flame Priests vie for supremacy, desiring to usurp all Dwarven power into their religion of segregation and hatred for other races. Secular Dwarf lords fight against the growing powers of the priests, trying to hold their kingdoms intact; preventing war from breaking out anew.
In their distant refuge of Platonia, several pacifist Gracies are called from their pastoral home, embarking upon a great journey to aid the Magi, Oracle to the races. Transporting the last survivors of an ancient sentient race to the Magi’s Emerald Vale, the Gracies are waylaid by craven foes who seek the magic of these last ephemeral beings. Will they succeed, or will the magic of life itself be forever lost?
Who wants to tear the world asunder, feasting upon the ruins of the kingdom of Men? Will the world descend into chaos, or will it be saved from the ambitious and craven who threaten all? The answers lie within which begins your journey through the magical lands of Nostraterra.

The Company of Fellows

psychological thriller, psychological mystery, mysteries and thrillers

Description

Imagine the Inspector Morse novels had been written by Thomas Harris. The Company of Fellows is a psychological thriller set in Oxford University.

Tommy West. A brilliant Oxford academic, until a breakdown 12 years ago. He has reinvented himself as a successful interior designer. His new life is comfortable, in every way, and safe. But he misses the challenge of academia.

Charles Shaw. Outspoken professor of theology. Sensualist. Unpopular with all his colleagues. Loathed by his ex-wife. And, as of five minutes ago, dead.

As a student, Shaw was Tommy’s mentor. Now Tommy must draw on the professor for inspiration one more time in order to find his killer. But all he has to go on are a handful of papers for the controversial research the professor was working on when he died. And the Professor’s 18 year-old daughter Becky, for whom Tommy is the last hope to get some closure on the troubled relationship with her father. And a police investigation convinced the Professor’s death was a suicide. An investigation led by Tommy’s ex.

The further Tommy gets inside the twisted lives of Shaw and his colleagues, and the closer he gets to the dark secrets that hide the truth, the further he gets from the safety he has so carefully built for himself, placing not just his life, but his sanity, at risk.

Being Someone Else

J. R. Lindermuth, Sticks Hetrick, mystery series, pennsylvania

Description

Some believe violence foreign to our nature. Dan ‘Sticks’ Hetrick, retired chief and now consultant to the Swatara Creek police department, knows better. We put a lid on our natural tendency to violence when we started living in groups, devising moral codes to hold it in check and allow us to live in harmony with others. But, deep down in the id-the site of instinct-there’s always that tendency to violence. When an out-of-state reporter is found murdered at a disreputable bar the tendency to violence spirals in the rural Pennsylvania community, and the investigative trail keeps bringing Hetrick and his team back to the family of a wealthy doctor who has come home to retire. Hetrick and his protégé Officer Flora Vastine are joined by an old friend from his State Police days as they unravel old secrets and mysteries in a tale with as many shocking twists as a country road.

  1. Todd, I tagged all these, plus all the other archives, weeks ago.

    I’m still hoping to get an answer to the comment I left for you yesterday. My novel, Beyond Nostalgia, doesn’t appear anywhere on your site, and it is getting virtually no taggings.

  2. Hi Todd & tagging peeps,

    I have caught up on tagging all the books to March 2011. I tag multiple editions & to the max 15 tags. Hope it helps!

    My link is below for tags – any & all are appreciated 🙂

  8. Metal Man

    THANK YOU BUT PLEASE DO NOT TAG MY BOOK ANYMORE. MY LISTING ON AMAZON USED TO SHOW RELATED BOOKS THAT VIEWERS ALSO LOOKED AT. NOW IT IS FILLED WITH THE BOOKS ON THIS LIST. I BELIEVE THAT WILL PREVENT ME FROM BEING PAIRED WELL WITH RELEVANT BOOKS.

  9. Hi,

    Again, all of your tags are very much appreciated.
