Biographies & Memoirs

By: Millys Altman
This is the true story of a monster killer, the 1918 flu pandemic, and how a young doctor fought to keep an entire village alive.

Holbert Nixon, fresh out of medical school, signed with a coal company to care for the several hundred immigrants who lived in Revere in western Pennsylvania and worked in the Revere mine. He was eager to begin his first practice, but it turned out to be more than he bargained for. In just two years, in September, 1918, the entire village was sickened in rapid succession in the flu pandemic that killed quickly and indiscriminately throughout the world. It was wartime, and Nixon was unable to find help.,

This story is an up close and personal account of what it was like to be sick with the HINI type virus in 1918. It is a tale of a dedicated doctor whose selflessness, compassion and courage helped the villagers survive in the pandemic that killed more people in a year than the Black Death killed in a century..

The Sacred Symbol
By: Mike Dickenson
A young outcast followed by crows finds a flower in the forest one night – it is the Dreamer’s Lotus, a powerful hallucinogen that opens the mind to the meanings of the symbols. This can be helpful, especially when you live in a world where everything is symbolic.

The crow is a dangerous sign that is helping Corvus to transform dreams into reality, though everyone knows that manifestation will get you banished. There is an old lunatic named Obiticus who lives in the forest. He wants to manifest a new world, and Corvus is the key to his plan. Obiticus speaks of things that are forbidden – he knows secrets that only the awakened will understand. Corvus is desperate to know the truth, but even enlightenment has its price.

The Dreamer’s Lotus, book one of the epic Lucidity Series, is a parable for our times. The Dreamer’s Lotus examines the concept of what it means to “awaken,” and reveals the perils of sharing a vision of a better world with those who think you are crazy. A book for lovers of adventure, wilderness, fantasy and philosophy, The Dreamer’s Lotus will make you question everything you believe.

FORBIDDEN. DENIED. UNREQUITED.
Noah was everything she ever wanted, everything she ever dreamed about, and yet he was the one she could never allow herself to have. Her best friend’s brother.

DESIRED. CHOSEN. CONTROLLED.
She was too sweet, too innocent, too fragile for someone like him. Someone whose tastes ran on the darker side. Someone broken and cynical, steeped in shadows of his past. Someone who exuded control in every aspect of his life, craved and needed it more than he needed to breathe. She could never handle all he would demand of her.
Or so he thought.

FOR HIM SHE WOULD SURRENDER.
Sophie fought so hard to establish control over her life, to diminish the damage her messed-up childhood left behind. The scars that no one could see, and yet they held so much power, contained so much pain. She struggled for years to defeat the shadows choking her from the inside out. To distance herself from the dysfunctional life she was forced to live. And she promised herself she would never give anyone else control over her life. She would never allow anyone else the chance to break her.
And then he came back into her life.

Will these two broken hearts find a path to happiness or will dark secrets of the past tear them apart forever? Will the shadows surrounding them be too much for them to overcome? Will those who wish them torn apart succeed? Or will they find a way to be together after all?

Esme’s Wish is a warm-hearted, whimsical fantasy tale, with lashings of mystery, magic, and mythology, and prose that ‘flows like water.’

When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father’s wedding, her protest is dismissed as the action of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme’s mother, Ariane – so why can’t she?

But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother’s disappearance – that ‘lost at sea’ is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know.

After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about Ariane, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.

Perfect for fans of Cornelia Funke or Rick Riordan.

I always said you couldn’t trust a wizard”¦

By: Lucinda Elliot
Two males are in love with aspiring model Natalie Nicholson, and she is not even sure that one of them is human. These are the best selling writer Alex Sager, and the anti hero from his novels, the wicked but beguiling Ivan Ostrowski from early nineteenth century Tsarist Russia.
The jaded rake Ivan Ostrowski has broken through the barrier from his own reality, seeking revenge on the writer who has imposed a series of unhappy love affairs on him.
Besides, Ostrowski has seen Natalie from afar, and now wildly infatuated with her, schemes to draw her back with him into his own world.
Natalie is unwillingly drawn into a nightmare situation which few can credit. Alex himself cannot believe – as his closest friend insists – that he has brought this situation about through insulting a sinister being known as ‘The Magus’ at an Ouija board session many years ago. He also refuses to credit the increasing parallels between his own life and that of his idol Pushkin, the great poet of Tsarist Russia, whose life was tragically cut short through a duel over his wife.
But even Alex has to admit, Natalie strongly resembles Pushkin’s Natalya, and Ivan Ostrowski certainly wants a battle to the death.
Natalie enlists the help of two New Age gurus, only to realise that the handsome and unscrupulous Ivan Ostrowski is enticing the woman into becoming his dupe.
Meanwhile, she senses that Alex is hurtling towards destruction, and dreads that Ostrowski will draw her into his own world.

After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about Ariane, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.

Perfect for fans of Cornelia Funke or Rick Riordan.

Junkfood Sexlife is a genre-stretching fun house featuring loosely-connected characters living in Venice Beach in the not-too-distant future, 2029. After a devastating, growth-crushing term with celebrity-turned-President George F*ckwad, the United States people voted to appoint a robot as Commander-in-Chief.

The book switches POV each chapter, rotating four times through the seven characters: A Moroccan drummer full of psychic and sexual mojo (Odessa Messa), a theremin-playing witch with a spell to get almost anything she wants (Stevia Wonder), an ex-military hippie-ish party bus driver (Auggie Breakmirrors), a singer who has befriended a canal creature (Cassandra Panda), a psychotherapist who needs therapy more than his patients (Dr. Philip K. Parker), an almost-famous actor with an almost-unquenchable sexual appetite (Gerard Vice), and the self-loathing host of the podcast “I Slept With Them First” (Matt Bogart).

If only they could remember what they came here for…

They spent lifetimes preparing for this mission. They chartered the vast distance of time and space to get here. Then, they crash-landed. What’s more, the beings on this foreign planet have powers they could not have anticipated. Powers to paralyze and consume them with one, penetrating look. Now, their party was down to one. And he must remember if he’s ever to find his team, let alone make it out of here himself.

They couldn’t afford to risk the mission…

I am a London-based author with special interest in neuroscience, memory and emotions, behavior and self-control, psychological identities and Ego, and how to overcome chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder.

Romance

By: Tanita Rose
Noah was everything she ever wanted, everything she ever dreamed about, and yet he was the one she could never allow herself to have.
Sophie fought so hard to establish control over her life, to diminish the damage her messed-up childhood left behind. The scars that no one could see, and yet they held so much power, contained so much pain. She struggled for years to defeat the shadows choking her from the inside out. To distance herself from the dysfunctional life she was forced to live. And she promised herself she would never give anyone else control over her life. She would never allow anyone else the chance to break her.
And then he came back into her life.
Noah always saw her as too sweet, too innocent, too fragile for someone like him. Someone whose tastes ran on the darker side. Someone broken and cynical, steeped in shadows of his past. Someone who exuded control in every aspect of his life, craved and needed it more than he needed to breathe. She could never handle all he would demand of her.
Or so he thought.
Will these two broken hearts find a path to happiness or will dark secrets of the past tear them apart forever? Follow their journey and find out.

The Sacred Symbol
By: Mike Dickenson
A young outcast followed by crows finds a flower in the forest one night – it is the Dreamer’s Lotus, a powerful hallucinogen that opens the mind to the meanings of the symbols. This can be helpful, especially when you live in a world where everything is symbolic.

The crow is a dangerous sign that is helping Corvus to transform dreams into reality, though everyone knows that manifestation will get you banished. There is an old lunatic named Obiticus who lives in the forest. He wants to manifest a new world, and Corvus is the key to his plan. Obiticus speaks of things that are forbidden – he knows secrets that only the awakened will understand. Corvus is desperate to know the truth, but even enlightenment has its price.

The Dreamer’s Lotus, book one of the epic Lucidity Series, is a parable for our times. The Dreamer’s Lotus examines the concept of what it means to “awaken,” and reveals the perils of sharing a vision of a better world with those who think you are crazy. A book for lovers of adventure, wilderness, fantasy and philosophy, The Dreamer’s Lotus will make you question everything you believe.

Two males are in love with aspiring model Natalie Nicholson, and she is not even sure that one of them is human. These are the best selling writer Alex Sager, and the anti hero from his novels, the wicked but beguiling Ivan Ostrowski from early nineteenth century Tsarist Russia.
The jaded rake Ivan Ostrowski has broken through the barrier from his own reality, seeking revenge on the writer who has imposed a series of unhappy love affairs on him.
Besides, Ostrowski has seen Natalie from afar, and now wildly infatuated with her, schemes to draw her back with him into his own world.
Natalie is unwillingly drawn into a nightmare situation which few can credit. Alex himself cannot believe – as his closest friend insists – that he has brought this situation about through insulting a sinister being known as ‘The Magus’ at an Ouija board session many years ago. He also refuses to credit the increasing parallels between his own life and that of his idol Pushkin, the great poet of Tsarist Russia, whose life was tragically cut short through a duel over his wife.
But even Alex has to admit, Natalie strongly resembles Pushkin’s Natalya, and Ivan Ostrowski certainly wants a battle to the death.
Natalie enlists the help of two New Age gurus, only to realise that the handsome and unscrupulous Ivan Ostrowski is enticing the woman into becoming his dupe.
Meanwhile, she senses that Alex is hurtling towards destruction, and dreads that Ostrowski will draw her into his own world.

The author is proud to announce that this novel has become her second to win a B.R.A.G medallion for outstanding self-published fiction.

For those who love a satire on the cliches of historical romance, which at the same time draws them into the adventure.

When the group of highwaymen, headed by the disgraced Earl Ravensdale hold up the hoydenish Isabella Murray’s coach, she knocks one of them down and lectures them all on following Robin Hood’s example. In fact, she has been long resisting the urge to escape from her parents’ plans for her advantageous marriage and become one herself.

The rascally Reynaud Ravensdale ”” otherwise known as the dashing highwayman Mr Fox ”” is fascinated by her spirit.

He escaped abroad three years back when he fell under suspicion of shooting a friend dead after a quarrel. Rumour has it that his far more respectable cousin was involved. Now, having come back during his father’s last illness, the young Earl has largely lost hope of clearing his name of murder, living as an outlaw as he is, and having sworn to protect someone else who was involved in the quarrel.

Isabella’s ambitious parents are eager to marry her off to Ravensdale’s cousin, the next in line to his title. The totally unromantic Isabella is even ready to elope with her outlaw admirer to escape this fate ”” on condition that he teaches her how to be a highwaywoman herself.

This hilarious spoof uses vivid characters and lively comedy to bring new life to a theme traditionally favoured by historical novelists ”” that of the wild young Earl, who, falsely accused of murder by the machinations of a conniving cousin and prejudged by his reputation, takes up life as an outlaw.

”˜Ravensdale’ is a fast paced, funny and light hearted read from the writer of ”˜That Scoundrel Émile Dubois’, and follows the adventures of Émile Dubois’ equally roguish cousin just prior to the outbreak of the French Revolutionary Wars. It can be read as an independent novel.
