Bending the Boyne

Tags

historical fiction Ireland, ancient Ireland, megaliths

Description

2200 BCE: Changes rocking the Continent reach Eire with the dawning Bronze Age. Well before any Celts, marauders invade the island seeking copper and gold. The young astronomer Boann and the enigmatic Cian need all their wits and courage to save their people and their great Boyne mounds, when long bronze knives challenge the peaceful native starwatchers. Tensions on Eire between new and old cultures and between Boann, Elcmar, and her son Aengus, ultimately explode. What emerges from the rubble of battle are the legends of Ireland’s beginnings in a totally new light.

Larger than myth, this tale echoes with medieval texts, and cult heroes modern and ancient. By the final temporal twist, factual prehistory is bending into images of leprechauns who guard Eire’s gold for eternity. As ever, the victors will spin the myths.

This story appeals to fans of solid historical fiction, myth and fantasy, archaeo-astronomy, and Bronze Age Europe.

BENDING THE BOYNE draws on 21st century archaeology to show the lasting impact when early metal mining and trade take hold along north Atlantic coasts. Carved megaliths and stunning gold artifacts, from the Pyrenees up to the Boyne, come to life in this researched historical fiction.

…A useful fleshing of the bones
of an interesting archaeological story.
William O=Brien, PhD, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland.

…Bang-on with the latest archaeological debates.

Labyrinth

Description

“All of life for those of us with royal blood is risk—a labyrinth—Nyke,” the Second Queen of Phitio tells her precious son who is marked for sacrifice the minute the crown prince accedes to the throne of Phitio. “We are thrust in the maze by our birth and status, and we spend our lives twisting and turning, seeking the magic center. But even there, the labyrinth becomes a living thing—scheming and fighting against us and changing its avenues, its walls closing in on us. All we can do is continue to seek out the center and to survive for as long as possible.”
And from that moment forward the young Nyke is caught up in a complex web of scheming and double-dealing as, using his wits and his beautiful, lithe, young body and his ability to inflame the lusts of men of power, he works his way through the convoluted posturing and maneuvering of the warring nation states of Phitio, Brixia, Morini, and Cenopolis in an effort to gain the center of the labyrinth—both real and figurative—and to survive to return to Phitio in victory.

Description

When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before – that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.

Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history’s most nefarious killers. Ivy’s got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.

Fans of Debbie Macomber, Kristin Hannah, and Susan Wiggs will enjoy this emotionally compelling story of love, family and a little bit of magic. A page-turning blend of romance and women’s fiction, Daniel’s Gift is the perfect book to take on vacation or on a long plane trip – it will sweep you away.

From the back cover:

Reckless Youth …

In her impetuous summer of love, Jenny St. Claire found Luke Sheridan — her dashing knight in intern’s scrubs. But a fast-track future and rigid, ambitious parents drove passion out of Luke’s life. And the summer ended, leaving Jenny with a broken heart… and a beautiful son, Danny, to help mend it.

Love Reclaimed …

Years later it is tragedy that reunites them — the father whom a son longs to know, and the mother who has tried desperately to forget. And as Luke and Jenny struggle to ignore the pain and desire reborn in a look and a touch, only the remarkable courage of a young boy — and the help of a rather unorthodox guardian angel — can offer them the most precious gift of all: a second chance at the love of a lifetime.

Romance, Teen, Young Adult

Description

Have you ever been asked what you want to do with the rest of your life when you are only in high school? It’s one thing to think about college, but it’s something completely different to think about what job you would want to do until you are old enough to retire. Who has time for that when you are only seventeen and have more pressing issues like trying to figure out members of the opposite sex?

When he was a senior in high school, Jack was asked to write his autobiography. The purpose of the assignment was to examine his past to see how he came to be the person he is today. Once he discovered this, he would know what he wanted to do with his life. What he discovered was that he did not define his life; his life was defined by his relationship with Christine, the girl next door that he has always been in love with.

“Life” is the story of Jack and Christine as they are trying to go from being just friends to being more than friends while trying to not destroy the best friendship they have ever had.

Love, Romance, Literary Fiction

Description

After becoming one of five bestsellers for the month of July, my newly released novel, Beyond Nostalgia, is in contention for Random House’s “youwriteon” website for writers “2011 Book of the Year”.

Born with blue in his collar, not in his veins, Dean Cassidy chronicles his soul-scarring rise from New York’s darkest alleys to a place somewhere nearer the top of his world. A human accomplishment as difficult as it is unlikely, his struggle is intensified by haunting memories of Theresa Wayman, his long-estranged teenage soul-mate. Theresa!Theresa!Theresa! She just won’t go away. For five years after losing contact with her, Dean anesthetizes his pain with the same things that caused it – boozy nights and faceless women. Then he gets lucky again. He meets, and soon marries, Maddy Frances Ronan, a woman so giving (and forgiving) she deserves to be canonized. Despite Dean’s many hang-ups and blunders, Maddy’s love for him never wavers. For two decades she endures all the jumped jobs, the time he goes postal, his frequent depressions and his ongoing anguish over the hostile corporate takeover of his and other American families. Even after she finds Dean unconscious, clutching a faded photograph of Theresa Wayman, she sticks by him.
But their problems don’t end there. There’s a green cloud, known as money, that forever casts shadows on their happiness. Even when Maddy and Dean’s two boys enter school and she takes on a job, there’s never enough. That is until the eleventh hour when things are looking their bleakest ………

Butter in the Well
Subtitle: A Scandinavian Woman’s Tale of Life on the Prairie, 1868-1888

historical fiction, pioneer women, women’s diary

Description

Read the fictionalized account of Kajsa Svensson Runeberg, an emigrant wife who recounts, through her diary, how she and her family built up a farm on the unsettled Kansas prairie from 1868 to 1888.

This historical fiction is based on the actual Swedish woman who homesteaded the author’s childhood home and is the first of the four book Butter in the Well series.

“Go back to a time when there are no streets, roads or cars. Imagine there are no buildings, homes, hospitals or grocery stores around the corner. All of our family’s belongings fit in a small wooden wagon. The year is 1868. There is nothing but tall, green waving grass as far as the eye can see. The scent of warm spring air after a morning rain surrounds you. Spring blows gently in your face. The snort of the horse and an occasional meadowlark, whistling its call, are the only sounds. You are along on the virgin land of the vast prairie.”- opening paragraph of Butter in the Well.
“…could well be the most endearing ‘first settler’ account ever told. Once a reader starts the book, they are compelled to keep reading to see what will happen next on the isolated prairie homestead. Not to be missed!- Capper’s Family Bookstore
“Hubalek has skillfully blended fiction and historic fact to recreate the life of Swedish homesteader, Kajsa Svensson Runeberg. A story of emigrant dreams and pioneer struggles, it is an altogether rewarding story and one that deserves to be told.”- Bobbie Pray

historical fiction, pioneer women, women’s diary

Description

Popular Kansas author Linda K. Hubalek continues the story of a Swedish immigrant family in Prärieblomman, the second book in the Butter in the Well series.
Homesteading the Kansas prairie in 1869, Präirblomman features the diary of young Alma Swenson, as she grows up on the Kansas prairie that her parents homesteaded. Hubalek grew up in this same house, researching the land and family that lived on the farm before her.
Even though born on the same farm in two different centuries, Prärieblomman’s main character, Alma Swenson Runneberg, and the author shared uncanny similarities while growing up in the Smoky Valley region of central Kansas. Both the third child of their families, they lived in the same house, played in the same yard and worked the same acres until each married and moved off the farm.
This tender, touching diary continues the saga of Kajsa’s family through her daughter, Alma, as she blossoms into a young woman.
“Prärieblomman is a tender and touching diary…Hubalek has succeeded in blowing life into both Alma and the fascinating times she lived through. Hubalek’s books give Swedish-Americans a perspective on the past…” – Anders Neumueller, Swedish Press, Vancouver, B.C. Canada
“…new understanding of the link between our history and the people who, just like us, brought laughter and tears to the Kansas prairie. In Prärieblomman, we find a piece of our heritage.” -Larry Hatteberg, Broadcast Journalist, KAKE-TV, Wichita KS

Egg Gravy

Tags

historical fiction, pioneer women, women’s diary

Description

Fades recipes- we’ve all come across them from time to time in our lives- either handwritten by ourselves or by another person in our family, or as old yellowed newspaper clippings stuck in a cookbook of sorts.
While doing the research from the Butter in the Well series, author Linda Hubalek found old recipes and home remedies along with the family and community histories. The recipes had been handwritten in old ledger books, on scraps of paper, in margins of old cookbooks, and forever etched in the memories of the pioneer’s children Hubalek interviewed.
As a result, Egg Gravy is a collection of recipes the pioneer women used during their homesteading days. Most of the recipes can be traced back to the original women that homesteaded the real-life setting of Butter in the Well.
Everyone who’s ever treasured a family recipe or marveled at the special touches Mother added to her cooking will enjoy this collection of recipes and wisdom from the homestead family.
From Green Pumpkin Pie, Caramel Ice Cream, and Smoked Pig Paunch to Christine’s Fruit Cake, Apple Sauce Cake, and Rhubarb Marmalade, these are culinary samplings of a yesteryear that would grace any menu today. — Midwest Book Review

In this fourth book of the Butter in the Well series, Kajsa Svensson Runeberg, now age 75, looks back at the changes she has experienced on the farm she homesteaded 51 years ago. She reminisces about the past, resolves the present situation, and looks toward their future off the farm.

Kids used to play outdoors until dinnertime, but now social media’s the new game in town. These days, they play on their smartphones. But with more freedom comes greater danger. Mobile devices are a conduit into a child’s life–not just for friends but for those who intend harm. This is the message of J. Carson Black’s Daphne du Maurier Award-nominated thriller, DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN.

Laura Cardinal, a detective with the Arizona Department of Public Safety, troubleshoots homicide investigations in small towns where resources are scarce. When Laura investigates the murder of a fourteen-year-old girl found in a town’s park bandshell, she knows immediately what she’s up against: a cunning sexual predator. But why is she plagued by the abduction of a schoolmate eighteen years earlier?

In a runaway case that propels Laura from a lavish Tucson estate to the secretive heart of a north Florida town, she must confront the ghosts of her own past. Then another child goes missing–and Laura must race the clock to find her.

The Last Killiney

Time Travel, Time Travel Romance, Historical Romance

Description

The Last Killiney is the story of a Pacific Northwest woman who remembers her past life as an Irish viscount’s lover. When she is swept back in time to relive this affair (along with the Irishman’s very unwilling modern counterpart), she learns hard truths about destiny, family, love and death in the 1790s.

The Last Killiney is about how Paul and Ravenna, flirting and arguing every step of the way, attempt to get back to their own time. Their struggles take them from London’s coal-darkened skies to British Columbia’s desolate, uncharted coasts where each must try to avoid their fate. History has foretold Paul will be killed by the First Nations people of Canada, while Ravenna will wed her own rakish, infatuated cousin. The fight against these two events is at the heart of the story.

This is a time-travel romance, but more in the vein of Diana’s Gabaldon’s Outlander than Meg Chittenden’s This Time Forever. Less a book about one man and one woman, The Last Killiney is Ravenna’s personal journey to womanhood in the company of three very different men. It encompasses not just the loss of her innocence, but her discovery and understanding of love in all its forms—good, bad, and unrequited.

Find out what it was like for the thousands of families who made the cross-country journey into the unknown.

Stories of humor and despair, along with her ongoing remarks about camping, cooking, and quilting, make you feel as if you pulled up stakes and are traveling with the Pieratts, too.

This series is based on author Linda K. Hubalek’s ancestors that traveled from Kentucky to Kansas in 1854. Besides the history of the times, Hubalek weaves quilting facts and quilt pattern sketches in her book series.

“A scientific breakthrough of such magnitude it could radically alter the future of humanity—for better or worse—is in the wrong hands.”

A group of graduate students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology has stolen a breakthrough in opening and stabilizing Einstein-Rosen Bridges, commonly known as wormholes, that allows them to instantly transport people from one location to another. Their goal is to assassinate any powerful politician and executive controlling the world’s banking system that would use this technology for their own greedy gain rather than the advancement of mankind.

In south Orange County, California, young Chase Manhattan, part of a new breed of modern-day discovery seekers, seeks to leave behind his life of danger and adventure and settle down as an associate professor of physics at University of California-Irvine. He also desires to build a lasting relationship with a beautiful woman he has not seen since high school.

His idyllic plan is postponed when he soon uncovers the diabolical scheme on the other side of the country. He realizes he is the one person who can prevent more murders from happening and either control or destroy the technology. Once the M.I.T. group understands Chase and his friends have the ability and motivation to not only take the technology from them, but also thwart more killings, Chase finds himself in their crosshairs, the top-of-the-list target on their assassination agenda.

As the death toll mounts, Chase and his friends must battle this group of misled zealots from M.I.T. on both coasts and in cyberspace in a thrilling, desperate race to determine the outcome of this monumental, once in a millenium discovery that will drastically change life as we know it—for better or worse

  4. Hi everyone,

    I have all of the books tagged up to April 2011! I tag multiple editions & the maximum # of tags each time. Thanks very much to everyone who is tagging away 🙂

    Here’s my link:

    http://www.amazon.com/Secret-ReadersFavorite-com-Fiction-Mystery-Medalist-ebook/dp/B004EEORPW/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

    Btw – the link for the book “Bleed” wasn’t working, so I looked it up on Amazon & tagged both editions. Also the link for the book “Diary of a Mad Wacky Panda” wasn’t working & I couldn’t find it on Amazon either…

    Cheers,

    Rai

  5. Phew – just finished tagging all books back to April last year.

    Will now rest my mouse hand in ice for a couple of hours.

  6. Hi,
    My posts with links don’t seem to work, or sometimes they just show up.
    Anyway, completed March 2011. This completes the archives.
    Now, to keep up with the new “tag its” and the UK site.
    Thanks to all for their tags.
    Jerri

  7. Dear Todd, & Everyone,

  8. Thanks, Tim! By the way, if you’re having trouble with people not being able to tag on the Kindle version of your book–tag boxes apparently aren’t showing up on the Kindle section on Amazon now (see the messages at the bottom of the “Submit Your Book” column–Todd and some others are in contact with Amazon trying to find out what’s up)–once the tag boxes are available, I’ll be able to do your Kindle version tags as well!
    Cheers, Melanie
