Blissful Lies tells a heart-wrenching story exploring the enviable bonds of five best friends who, in the midst of growing up together, are just starting to realize how much they still have to learn about life. They quickly find the limits of their relationships are tested when secrets and lies rapidly interrupt their picture perfect existence, threatening the stability of years of friendship. At the center of their universe is mother to one group member and Brown-Thomas University Chancellor, Addison Hamilton. Uncertainty in her own life leads her down a path of no return as she finds herself a little too involved with someone many years her junior. While each person is forced to take responsibility for their hidden secret, they wonder if ultimately, it’s just too much to move forward as the ‘family’ they once claimed to be. Join us on the journey, which allows true love to surface despite obvious obstacles, fearful hatred to emerge with a vengeance and betrayal of even the most loyal of friends. As lives are left in tattered pieces, everyone is forced to choose…. Will the group fall apart at the seams or will the strong bonds of everlasting friendship

 withstand the fire of deceit?

A King's Task                                         by A. V. Wedhorn                           Volume 2 of the Kingdom Chronicles


Pain wracked the knight champion as he slowly pulled his body out of the icy water and onto the frozen shore.  Blood ran off his back forming a murky pool under him. Gasping, he coughed up a bloody froth from his burning lungs. Bertravis Liolbane wasn’t sure why he was still alive. Lifting his face out of the mud, he stared forlornly back in the direction he had came. I should have stayed, he thought miserably. My king and queen died and yet I live. He saw no movement in the smoldering remains. He must have been mistaken.  With a heavy heart Bertravis dismissed his surge of hope.  For a moment, he thought he had seen a figure clutching something staggering out of the flames.

A King's Task, Volume 2 of The Kingdom Chronicles, delves deep into the minds and motivations of a treacherous race, a power hungry Regent, his pet wizard, and their revenge-seeking knight champion,  as they plot through deceit and deception to take control of the Fourteen Kingdoms.  Join Damien Daverge, his best friend, Logan Longshadow, Kendle Stonebreaker, son of the powerful Hill Dwarves, Alyssa, the magical Cleric of Dar, Cassica Essen, battlemage supreme, and others as they battle to put the rightful heir of the Fourteen Kingdoms on the Throne and rise above the worst, do what is necessary and right while pledging their lives no matter the cost.. Strong characters in this story present a positive message of responsibility and commitment to principle and honor. A King’s Task is the fantastic continuation of the story that began in A King’s Quest.  This is an excellent adventure that stays in the true vein of the genre and teaches the reader some important lessons about life.

Stay tuned for A King's Court, Vol. 3 of the Kingdom Chronicles as the epic story continues.




Galaxy of the Damned                                     by Michael D'Ambrosio


“We’re coming in hot. Stay to my left and we’ll cover you,” ordered Will.

“Forget it. The Widow Maker’s firing system is damaged. They can only target you in ‘manual’, Will. She’s all yours if you want her,” Arn declared proudly. “Tell Severin that I know she’ll do a fine job filling my shoes.”

“Damn it, Arn! You’re quitting on us.”

“No, son. I’m going out like the warrior I once was. It’s easy to forget what got you to the top. That makes you weak.”


A revolt on Calamaar; the long awaited Weevil invasion; and a dangerous new weapon set the stage for an explosive ending to the Space Frontiers Series. Will and Shanna risk all to save their people and end the Weevil threat that has plagued them for years. What price will they pay to bring peace to their kingdom and return to a normal life? Join Will and Shanna in what could be their last ride in Galaxy of the Damned, the end of the series that sci-fi readers will never forget.

Kingdom in the Balance                                                          by Debra Killeen                Volume 5 of the series The Myrridian Cycle

Chaos comes to Myrridia’s immediate neighbors when the King of Esterlyn passes away after a long illness and the 2-year-old King of Wyckendom is murdered in his cradle, on the same day.  The heir to Esterlyn, 12-year-old Frederich DiStephane, is abducted as his uncle prepares to usurp the throne, while an unexpected heir to Wyckendom, Katharine Severinson, appears at that royal castle.  In the midst of these events, Frederich’s young friends mount a search party, uncaring of the potential dangers to themselves, and traverse the length of Myrridia in pursuit.  Shadows of past events continue to threaten the present as those with power in Myrridia work to rescue Frederich and aid him in claiming his inheritance, amid discovery of new Magical talents.

Is belief in a just cause and determination enough to overcome seemingly impossible odds, or does it take more, including a willingness to sacrifice oneself?

Mice Don't Taste Like Chicken                              by Scott Heydt


Sixth grade can be a zoo.  Drew Harrington hopes so.  He and his best friend, Jackson Harris, can’t wait to join Bridgeton Elementary’s legendary teacher, Mr. Cross, in a classroom inhabited by cantankerous lizards, an elusive iguana, and a 13-foot Burmese python named Prometheus.  Will this year be as predictable as the past five?  Or will this be the year that makes Drew realize mice don’t taste like chicken?

Mice Don’t Taste Like Chicken is an enjoyable story about how students can learn from more than just textbooks—like from reptiles, for example. Scott Heydt’s voice makes for an authentic read with a relatable main character—I should know, only being a few years out of middle school myself!  Also, you might learn a thing or two about pythons and Nile monitors (or, like me, you might learn that there is such a thing as a Nile Monitor)!

Abner the Clown                                  by Jeffrey Breslauer


          "I wanted to be anything but Abner!" 

This is the lament of Abner the Clown as he tells young readers in rhyme how his clown friends helped him to be proud of who he is. Abner the Clown, a newly released picture book written by Jeffrey Breslauer, is the first in an ongoing series.  This book not only helps children who are struggling with their self-esteem, but it has been brought to the author's attention by a children's therapist that this whimsical tale of Abner the Clown would also be a great aid to youngsters in her grief counseling group.

          The book also includes a studio quality read-along CD of Jeffrey performing the voices of Abner and the Ringmaster; allowing the child and the parent to follow along with the story.  This format is similar to Scholastic's Clifford and Franklin the Turtle series, the Random House Beginner Books by Dr. Seuss and The Berenstein Bears series.

         As a professional actor and voice-over artist, Jeffrey is experienced in reading to children and has performed extensively in children's theatre in New York, Florida and many cities in between.

THE  SOURCE                                   by Diana Bastine


When Caitlin Flynn discovers a strange-looking man near a cave in the west of Ireland, her quiet summer holidays take a detour.  She first suspects he’s a vampire, but soon learns that his story is far more wondrous and unusual.  He’s on a quest to save his people from extinction – and he needs Caitlin’s help!  But others are interested in thwarting the mysterious stranger’s plans and gaining power for themselves.  Can Caitlin and Fortescue find the Goddess Star and save the Source – and therefore all of Hamelyn?

  The Vampire's Tomb Mystery                              Dwight Christopher Kemper


Funerals...for most of us, the trappings of the funeral parlor and the finality of the cemetery commemorates the end, but for an actor like Armand Tesla, who was best remembered for his vampire roles, a funeral is only the beginning. Armand Tesla was to be buried in his vampire costume, but obviously the aged star of stage and screen horror was not yet ready to ring down the final curtain. No, it would not be nearly so easy to bury such a restless corpse. So be prepared for a case of a body that won't stay put and the tale of a struggling young movie director with more ambition than talent who turns up missing at the vampire's last bow. Indeed, my friends, this will prove to be just the kind of case that only a psychic Hollywood detective like Charles Criswell King, aided by Famous Monster Forrest J Ackerman, can solve. So, gentle reader, be prepared for a tale of creaking doors and empty coffins, of gunshots in the night and damsels in distress, all part of "The Vampire's Tomb Mystery." 

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Forrest J Ackerman, the initial J does not have a period after it. That is how Forry wrote his name.)

Hey Mister, Will It Fly?                                     Robert A. Benjamin


If you have spent much time around model airplanes over the past twenty five years or so, you will probably already recognize the name Robert A. Benjamin. Bob published his first article in the old Model Builder magazine in 1983. Pick up any U.S. model magazine today and the chances are very good that Bob has written material for that title or that of the current magazine’s predecessor. He has published over thirty articles featuring original designs or gas-to-electric conversions of popular kits, and many more including product reviews, event reports and how-to info.  Bob wrote and directed the video program All Because Of Model Airplanes that has been used for years as the signature presentation at the National Aeromodeling Museum in Muncie, Indiana, as well as the instructional series Getting Started In Electric Flight and several other specialized titles produced for the AMA. He is also the artist behind that long series of aircraft paintings that appeared on the covers of Model Builder and Model Aviation magazines during the ‘80’s and ‘90’s.

In 1990 Bob began his career as a dedicated RC Scale competitor as one of a tiny handful of model builders who pioneered the use of electric power head-to-head with traditional engine powered models. Since then he has managed to become the first modeler ever to compete using electric power at the U.S. Scale Masters, at TOP GUN, and in 2002 as a member of Team USA at the World F4C (RC Scale) Championships in Toronto, Canada. There has never been an electric category at any of those events. In 2006 he was inducted into the Model Aviation Hall of Fame.

It was not always like that. Bob Benjamin’s life with model airplanes goes back to the late 1940’s. He has had his fair share of experience as the little boy hanging over the flying field fence and as the kid who scratched and saved for months to put a McCoy 35 on a Ringmaster. From classic stick-and-tissue rubber jobs to RC scale electric ducted fan jets, Bob has been there and done that. He knows what it feels like to fly a model by sheer force of will on a second-hand, third-rate radio and he knows what it feels like to have the very best RC systems in the world for the asking as a factory sponsored master modeler. The only thing Bob Benjamin never learned was how to give up. Hey Mister, Will It Fly? is his personal story of how it all happened.

Priestess Awakening                                          by  Debra Killeen                 Volume Four of The Myrridian Cycle  

While the Kingdom of Myrridia celebrates the wedding of their young king, the spirit of a slain Magical practitioner is resurrected in neighboring Wyckendom.

Since Myrridia’s Archbishop Edward Fitzroy no longer has any Magical abilities, it falls on the shoulders of Princess Allyson Claybourne, sister of Myrridia’s king, to battle this enemy.  But unknown to many in Myrridia, Allyson is following an unorthodox Magical path – one completely unacceptable to Myrridia’s Church.

Meanwhile, Allyson’s brother, King Robert Claybourne, has his own foe to meet on the field of battle – King Nicholas II of Wyckendom – who will stop at nothing to acquire Myrridia.


In desperate times, heroes come forward...willing to do whatever it takes....even if it means paying the ultimate price.

The Hypnotist  by Gordon Snider

In 1906, San Francisco has reached the peak of its golden age. Fortunes have created a society that attracts European opera singers and cordon bleu chefs. It is a world defined by elegant balls, oysters, and champagne. But there are darker sides to the city as well. One of these darker places is The Mission district south of Market Street houses tenements where shanties huddle together and rats plague the streets. And nearby sits Chinatown, an endless warren of dark alleys that offers gambling, prostitution, and opium, all controlled by vicious gangs, called tongs. Into these disparate worlds steps Marta Baldwin, a young woman who has shunned her own social background to help the poor. She is confronted by a hypnotist, a man who hypnotizes young women from the tenements and delivers them to the tongs in Chinatown to work in their brothels. Marta escapes his hypnotic trance, but when her assistant, Missy, disappears, Marta realizes she has been taken by the evil man who confronted her. She seeks the help of Byron Wagner, one of San Francisco's most prominent citizens. Marta finds herself drawn to Byron but knows his high social standing prevents any possibility of a relationship between them. This is confirmed when Marta discovers Byron having an intimate conversation with Lillie Collins, the daughter of one of the city's most elite families. Marta is flushed with jealousy. However, Lillie defies social customs, and her rebellious nature fits naturally with Marta's. Despite her envy, the two women become close friends. Marta is caught up in a whirlwind of opulent balls, opium dens and brothels, and police raids in Chinatown. She cannot deny her feelings for Byron, but she must save Missy and protect her new friends from harm. For lurking in the background is the hypnotist. He has become obsessed with Marta and will use all his guile to ensnare her. When he threatens those she loves, Marta is determined to stop him, even at her own peril. Will her boldness entrap her? If so, how can she hope to escape the man's hypnotic embrace? Then the earth moves, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Amanda Wilkes has her summer completely planned – work at the veterinary hospital, ride at Rough and Ready Stable, and hang out with her best friend Samantha.  But when she loses her job to the boss’s nephew and Samantha takes a position as a working student in another state, Amanda realizes that this summer is going to be anything but predictable.  Before leaving town, Samantha asks Amanda to promise her two things.  The first request is that Amanda takes care of Samantha’s new upper level event horse prospect, Indefensible.  While a talented and fearless jumper, Indy has the reputation of being unpredictable and a danger to his rider.  Amanda is thrilled to have the chance to work with the horse she has been in love with since the first time she saw him.  However, she soon learns that her love is not enough to prevent Indy’s bad behavior from surfacing. Samantha’s second request is that Amanda be kind to Justin, the pre-vet student who took her position at the veterinary hospital.   Having sworn to hate the person who took her job, Amanda is dismayed to find herself drawn to the handsome and charming Justin, and with the encouragement of her friends and family, she begins to develop a relationship with him that goes beyond simple friendship. As she struggles with her feelings of loneliness in Samantha’s absence and the mixed emotions of her first real love interest, Amanda also struggles to unravel the source of and cure for Indy’s dangerous behavior.  She knows that his future as an event horse can only be secured if he becomes a safe, reliable mount and she will soon discover that his very life depends upon it.

A Visit to Heaven                                                  by Tom Te-Wu Ma

A Visit to Heaven is a collection of four stories by acclaimed writer Tom Te-Wu Ma. “A Visit to Heaven” is a riveting tale of Tai-lin and his four girlfriends: Pin-pin, who yearns to leave China for America; Ze-chen, a fairy who takes Tai-lin on a trip to Heaven and becomes his first lover; Xin-di, who explains to him the world of ghosts; and Donna Jones, his nurse at the psychiatric facility Tai-lin is sent to when his story of dying and being reincarnated in the recently deceased body of American James W. Cubin is not believed. Donna later becomes Tai-lin’s wife and they become parents under a remarkable set of unbelievable but true circumstances. In “Uncle Du” we meet 92-year-old Da-ye, born in a poor farmer’s home who became an experienced Chinese soldier, eventually made his way to the U.S. to attend the University of Michigan and later become an American citizen, an accountant and a hotel owner who married his childhood sweetheart Fu-lin. His story is one of perseverance and a steadfast strength of character. You will laugh and cry as Uncle Du’s story unfolds and come to admire a man with a dream.  “Wallet” shows Mr. Wang, a retired 40-year Chinese government employee that he is not at all like his beloved actor Bruce Lee but is instead a person he never imagined he would become. "Cigarette Butt” pits Tony Chen against the suspicions of his wife Silvia who learns that it is best not to jump to conclusions on the basis of flimsy evidence.

Cocaine Jungle     by F.W. Brown

Will Bentley was a twice-elected Governor of the state of Kansas and one term President of the United States.  Six months ago, Bentley and his politically-oriented wife vacated the White House after an unsuccessful bid for a second term. Two hours ago, the New York Times hit the street with bold headlines: EX-PRESIDENT ASSASSINATED. A sniper's bullet had reduced Will Bentley to a crumpled blood-drenched heap at the entrance of the plush Pork Barrel Restaurant in lower Manhattan.  As Governor, it was rumored that Will Bentley had done business with shadowy people in South America. It had involved providing secret cover for cocaine shipments flown from Colombia to Donaldson Air Field near Topeka. The alleged cocaine operation was never investigated. After Bentley won the Presidential campaign, those rumors went away. If he had been involved in any illegal cocaine deals, apparently he’d gotten away with it….or had he?

I Promised You Daisies                                                                           Book 2 in the series Imperfectly Ordinary                                       by Robert A. Benjamin

For all of us who came of age during the time of Woodstock, hippies and Vietnam, our paths into adult life were more perilous than they might have been a few innocent years earlier. In 1966, although I had never heard a gun fired in anger, I was among the walking wounded of those days of political, intellectual and moral conflict. I was a fresh-faced, eager high school graduate about to embark on my journey of college, choosing a profession, and marrying my steady girl. No matter their sincerity, all of those dreams were broken and shattered. I faced difficult choices. I bore guilt I never imagined. I realized I had never learned how to give up. I Promised You Daisies is the second volume of my trilogy Imperfectly Ordinary. As a sequel to A Gift of Dreams, this is the story of my attempt to make sense of life during the disrupted decade that followed my boyhood in a contented traditional New England village. I recount meeting studious, serious-minded Karen Sandstrom, our discovery that we shared just about every opinion in life that mattered, and our student marriage. We were convinced our mutual support would enable us to accomplish more good things in the world than we might have managed on our own. But would that be enough to sustain our growing love?

O.Y.L.           by Scott Heydt

A tall-majestic apple tree manages to grow in Jenna Durstine’s apartment complex, where even blades of grass are at a premium.  Nearby in third-period English at Grayson High, where Jenna is a freshman, her infatuation grows for someone who her mother has warned can only lead her to heartbreak.

Back to relative normalcy and stronger for the experience, the time is ripe for Jenna to focus on herself—and on coming clean about her feelings, despite her mother’s warnings, to the object of her affection.  A once ordinary, overlooked tree now becomes a symbol for Jenna’s desires.  Even in her dreams, the perfect apple lingers just beyond her fingertips as she searches for a way to say, “I love you." 

But when an intruder invades campus, putting Jenna’s newfound love in the center, Jenna must face her haunting past, must forgive her mother for the unforgivable, and must ultimately decide if love that is out of her league is worth the climb.

Perhaps You Do Not Know Who I Am                                                                          by Rebecca Kopp DiPiazza


Through a veil of tears, I said to a physician, “Perhaps you do not know who I am.” Thus, the title of this book was born. Within a twenty-four hour period from the onset of abdominal pain, urgency, and frequency to urinate, I became physically incapacitated.

I share my journey from the onset of the symptoms as I search for a medical diagnosis. The search took ten months, and visits with eight doctors to arrive at several diagnoses. The diagnoses are Interstitial Cystitis, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Bulging Disc, and Depression.

Each day I lived in fear and apprehension. My illness was invisible, my symptoms were invisible, and I felt invisible. My pain and deterioration were not validated. I was challenged mentally as I began to doubt myself. Deep inside, I knew that there must be a great gift in this challenge. I have always believed that within every adversity there is indeed a spiritual gift. Indeed, I found more than one gift.

It is my hope that sharing my story will give hope and inspiration to others who are facing a drastic life style change or illness. I believe my story would be helpful to medical and mental professionals as well.

The Dictator's Astrologer                                                                           by Roberleigh H. Claigh


Hitler pressed a button, the elevator doors slid open and they ascended a 6,000 foot shaft through the heart of the mountain to Eagle’s Nest, his secret observatory. Astrological symbols were painted on the walls, and the Zodiac was rendered on a high ceiling of deep blue glass. “I call this room the Chamber of Stars,” he said to Afra.

“Reichfuhrer Himmler has acquainted me with your astrological expertise,” he explained. “And I would like to know if you foresee anything significant in my future.”

Surviving several attempts on her life, Afra develops into a master spiritual astrologer with psychic abilities of clairvoyance and astral travel. But would she have the strength to tell the Fuhrer what she read in his stars?  Contains the star charts of Hitler's Cabinet, niece, Geli, and girlfriend, Eva Braun.

A Gift of Dreams                                                                                                        by Robert A Benjamin         Book  One of the Trilogy, Imperfectly Ordinary                              

When you were a kid, did they call you names?  They did it to me all the time. It hadn’t taken anyone I knew very long to figure out that I was what you called smart, so I got used to hearing teacher’s pet and bookworm and sissy and others I’d rather not remember. As we got older I progressed to being called weird and queer...before any of us guessed what that really meant..., and eventually just plain asshole. Clearly something was wrong and it was not at all difficult to believe hints beyond counting that whatever it was, the fault lay with me. It did not help when my elders more or less joined in. My strict grandmother Victoria liked to make sure I was close enough to overhear her grumbling about how that boy is too smart for his own good, and though I had long since learned to avoid what adults in those days called being fresh-mouthed, I also knew that certain kinds of questions would never fail to prompt my mother to snap don’t you get started being a smart aleck with me. I didn’t get it. Didn’t everyone my age have an interest in everything? Couldn’t everyone just pick up whatever books might be lying around and start reading? Couldn’t everyone always get good grades without having to try very hard? There was one name I might have been called that would have helped a lot, but gifted was not a term you heard much in New England Puritan society during the ‘40’s and ‘50’s. As far as I was concerned, the whole notion of gifted children might as well not have been invented yet. I tried to teach myself to keep my head down and to work at dreaming up an explanation of life that might make sense. I learned to exist as the boy who was merely tolerated at the fringe of juvenile society as I knew it, where sadness was just one of the facts of life, but I never learned how to give up, and without truly realizing what was happening, I set about discovering that there was indeed plenty of joy in life, too, if you knew where to look for it. From time to time I dared to hope I was about to get it all right. I didn’t. Instead, I came to accept that most of what I thought about myself was probably not true. I got that part wrong too. In the end it was going to cost me most of a lifetime to understand what had actually happened to me, and then to work out what I was supposed to do about it. A Gift of Dreams is the story of how I began that adventure.
