Matthew Heart of the Metropolitan Police must deal with his partner, a cyborg policewoman, his unofficial family, a one-legged girl and a mysterious assailant bent on taking over the world

Monday, March 25th, 2019
Metrofloat
New York
by
William Quincy Belle
Genre:
Science Fiction
 
A
Post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi thriller.
 

 

Several
hundred years in the future, Earth is a different planet. Antigravity
has been invented and “flying” has given way to “floating”:
giant platforms with cities remain above the growing surface
temperatures as enclaves of the privileged. A global pandemic has
wiped out 80% of those on the ground, and a virulent, flesh-eating
disease, necrofasc, has left most with artificial body parts. Insects
are the main food staple. A utopia for some, a dystopia for
others.

 

Metrofloat
New York, a futuristic city of thirty million, is run by an oligarchy
of five rich and powerful people. An unknown assassin, working from
within the system, attempts to seize control and declare himself
dictator by methodically removing all rivals. Detective Matthew Heart
of the Metropolitan Police must deal with his partner, a cyborg
policewoman, his unofficial family, a transgender woman and her
one-legged daughter, and a mysterious assailant bent on taking over
the world by killing anyone who stands in his way.

William
Quincy Belle is just a guy. Nobody famous; nobody rich; just some guy
who likes to periodically add his two cents worth with the hope,
accounting for inflation, that $0.02 is not over evaluating his
contribution. He claims that at the heart of the writing process is
some sort of (psychotic) urge to put it down on paper and likes to
recite the following, which so far he hasn’t been able to attribute
to anyone: “A writer is an egomaniac with low self-esteem.”
You will find Mr. Belle’s unbridled stream of consciousness floating
around in cyberspace.

chapter I was on!” – Heather, AU

A great works of fiction that explore the universal desire to belong

The
Improbable Wonders of Moojie Littleman
by
Robin Gregory
Genre:
Fantasy, Magical Realism
Early
1900s, Western America. A lonely, disabled boy with a nasty temper
and uncontrolled mystical powers, Moojie is taken by his father to
his grandfather’s wilderness farm. There, Moojie meets an
otherworldly clan of outcasts that he wants to join. Following a
series of misadventures–magical and mystical–he is summoned by the
call to a great destiny … if only he can survive one last
terrifying trial.

 

 

Having
won a number of awards, Robin Gregory’s The Improbable Wonders of
Moojie Littleman is being lauded as a classic. A haunting, visionary
tale spun in the magical realist tradition of Gabriel Garcia
Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude and Madeleine L’Engle’s A
Wrinkle in Time, the profoundly unique voice and heart-stirring
narrative recall great works of fiction that explore the universal
desire to belong.

Creative Writing at University of California, Santa Cruz and Stanford

Excerpt #1

The peculiar smile that crossed the face of the Ranger eluded the two candidates. He pressed a button on the black plastic box on the right side of his desk and asked his secretary to bring in two contracts.

While there was a lull in the conversation, the Ranger felt compelled to inform his recruits of a few inconsequential matters.

“You know…” He pulled out a pack of cigarettes and offered one to his guests. “Most of these jobs are anywhere from 100 to 250 miles from any real civilization.”

The recruits were thinking, good…no supervision.

“The job can be a little dangerous sometimes.” Eric and Mickey gave each other the smile that said, ‘We laugh in the face of death.’

As the secretary popped through the door, the Ranger spoke as if he were conversing with the plant in corner of his office. “Yeah, we’ve lost fifteen men in the last five years.”

“Lost…lost…like they got lost in the woods…somebody misplaced them?” Eric glanced at the application; suddenly it looked like a coiled serpent.

The Ranger put on a serious face that could have come out of any horror movie. “No. Lost…like in dead, or at least missing.”

Between
changes in YouTube’s algorithm and my book reading taste, it was a
struggle for me to keep up with my favorite booktubers and keep
a look-out for new booktubers. I knew many other fans of BookTube
were having similar problems.
When
YouTube changed it’s monetization rules in early 2018, many people,
including myself, worried about it’s overall impact on small content
creators. As I looked at my personal BookTube channel list, I
thought, “What can I do to help support and encourage bookish
content creators?” Then poof! The idea for The BookTube Your
Shelf Daily Reader popped into my head. [Yes, with a poof]. What
started out as an idea in March of 2018 has morphed into a passion
project with an online newspaper and email newsletter.

Old Lady Hawthorne, the town’s infamous witch and murderess lives next door

Monday, March 11th, 2019

div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”>

The
Secrets of Hawthorne House
by
Donald Firesmith
Genre:
Teen Paranormal Mystery
 
 
Matt’s
life changes forever when a family of druids moves into the
dilapidated Victorian mansion next door. The story of an unlikely
friendship, the clash of two completely different cultures, secret
magic, and a search for the lost Hawthorne treasure.
Fifteen-year-old
Matt Mitchell was having the worst summer imaginable. Matt’s misery
started when a drunk driver killed his mother. Then his father moved
him and his twin sister to the small town of Hawthorne in rural
Indiana, as far as his grieving father could take from the ocean that
Matt’s mother had loved. At the new high school, three bullies are
determined to make Matt miserable. And to top it off, Matt learns
that the recluse who lives in the ‘haunted house” next door is
none other than Old Lady Hawthorne, the town’s infamous witch and
murderer. Matt’s terrible summer is turning into an awful autumn
when something quite unexpected happens. Old Lady Hawthorne’s niece
and her three children arrive, and Matt meets Gerallt.
My review

Matt and Tina Mitchell are twins who just lost their mother in an accident. Their father takes them far away from the seaside they love to the small town of Hawthorn. There they find themselves next door to the famous haunted house of the ghost of the gray lady. Matt needs some money and starts to clean the yard of the haunted house for Mrs. Hawthorn, getting to know her and her timid ways.

One day, her niece comes to live with her along with her three children. Matt becomes Geralt Hawthorne’s best friend and soon discovers that his family is not the common family he is adjusted to. Their secrets, their corky ways, no electricity, no games or computers make for an interesting friendship. Not only that, but the bullies at school are after them…they will have to pull together or be defeated.

This is a great, clean and entertaining story for middle grade and young adult kids who like mystery, treasure hunts and magic. It is nicely done by Donald Firesmith. I would keep my eyes out for the next book in this series.

Raging
Sea
The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 3
by
Kim Iverson Headlee
Genre:
Historical Fantasy 
 
Outcast,
clanless, and but a junior officer in Arthur the Pendragon’s army,
Angusel struggles to rebuild the life stolen from him through
betrayal by the person he had held most dear. His legion allegiance
thrusts him onto the campaign trail as one of Arthur’s forward
scouts, stalking Angli troops and being among the first to clash with
these vicious enemies at every turn. But the odds loom high against
him and his sword-brothers, and they will need a miracle just to
survive.

 

 

Pressured
to make the best choice to ensure her clan’s future leadership,
Eileann struggles with her feelings for Angusel, whose outcast status
makes him forbidden to her as a mate. When Angli treachery threatens
everyone she loves, she vows to thwart their violent plan to conquer
her clan. But she is no warrior, she has no soldiers to command, and
she will need a miracle just to survive.

 

 

How
can one soldier make a difference? How can one woman save her kin and
clan? In the crucible of combat, Angusel must surrender to the will
of the gods, and Eileann must invoke divine power to forge the most
dangerous warrior the world has ever known.

Morning’s
Journey
The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 2
 
Magnificent.”
~ Kathleen Foley, author of the Faith in Uniform series

 

 

In
a violent age when enemies besiege Brydein and alliances shift as
swiftly as the wind, stand two remarkable leaders: the Caledonian
warrior-queen Gyanhumara and her consort, Arthur the Pendragon. Their
fiery love is tempered only by their conviction to forge unity
between their disparate peoples. Arthur and Gyan must create an
impenetrable front to protect Brydein and Caledonia from land-lusting
Saxons and the marauding Angli raiders who may be massing forces in
the east, near Arthur’s sister and those he has sworn to
protect.

 

 

But
their biggest threat is an enemy within: Urien, Arthur’s rival and
the man Gyan was treaty-bound to marry until she broke that promise
for Arthur’s love. When Urien becomes chieftain of his clan, his
increase in wealth and power is matched only by the magnitude of his
hatred of Arthur and Gyan—and his threat to their infant
son.

 

 

Morning’s
Journey
,
sequel to the critically acclaimed 
Dawnflight,
propels the reader from the heights of triumph to the depths of
despair, through the struggles of some of the most fascinating
characters in all of Arthurian literature. Those struggles are
exacerbated by the characters’ own flawed choices. Gyan and Arthur
must learn that while extending forgiveness to others may be
difficult, forgiveness of self is the most excruciating—yet
ultimately the most healing—step of the entire journey.

The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 1
 
What
if King Arthur’s queen was every bit as heroic as he was? Find out
by immersing yourself in this epic story of the power couple whose
courage and conviction would shape the destiny of a nation.

 

 

Gyan
is a Caledonian chieftainess by birth, a warrior and leader of
warriors by training, and she is betrothed to Urien, a son of her
clan’s deadliest enemy, by right of Arthur the Pendragon’s
conquest of her people. For the sake of peace, Gyan is willing to
sacrifice everything…perhaps even her very life, if her foreboding
about Urien proves true.

 

 

Roman
by his father, Brytoni by his mother, and denied hereditary rulership
of his mother’s clan because of his mixed blood, Arthur has followed
his father’s path to become Dux Britanniarum, the Pendragon: supreme
commander of the northern Brytoni army. The Caledonians, Scots,
Saxons, and Angles keep him too busy to dwell upon his
loneliness…most of the time.

 

 

When
Gyan and Arthur meet, each recognize within the other their soul’s
mate. The treaty has preserved Gyan’s ancient right to marry any
man, providing he is a Brytoni nobleman—but Arthur does not
qualify. And the ambitious Urien, Arthur’s greatest political
rival, shall not be so easily denied. If Gyan and Arthur cannot
prevent Urien from plunging the Caledonians and Brytons back into
war, their love will be doomed to remain unfulfilled forever.

 

 

But
there is an even greater threat looming. The Laird of the Scots wants
their land and will kill all who stand in his way. Gyan, Arthur, and
Urien must unite to defeat this merciless enemy who threatens
everyone they hold dear.

Love can last a thousand lifetimes when you’re an Immortal… or so they thought

Friday, March 1st, 2019
Stella
of Akrotiri: Deminon
by
Linda Rae Sande
Genre:
Fantasy
 
Love
can last a thousand lifetimes when you’re an Immortal… or so they
thought.

 

 

What’s
become of the Immortal Darius? His wife, Stella, worries about his
fate as she rules over their city-state of Deminon, especially when
she learns he’s been the victim of treachery. She’ll do anything
to get him back.

 

 

Enslaved
as a traitor to Rome, Darius is forced to fight gladiators as part of
the funeral rites of powerful Romans. His years of experience on the
battlefield serve him well in the arena—until he’s forced to
fight Marcus—a younger, stronger gladiator who is unaware of his
own immortality.

 

 

Sure
he’s about to suffer a defeat by the hand of Marcus, Darius is
forced to make a decision that will change his future and
Stella’s—preserve his essence by allowing his body to die so that
he can live on in Marcus. His two-thousand years of memories and life
experiences should be powerful enough to overcome the essence of the
untested Immortal. Allow him to return to Stella and resume their
life together, even if she won’t immediately recognize him.

 

 

But
Marcus isn’t giving up so easily. Especially when he meets
Stella.

 

 

Will
Marcus help Darius take revenge on the one whose deceit led to his
arrest on charges of treason? Or will Darius’ essence slowly be
subsumed, the memories of his nearly two-thousand-year lifespan—and
of Stella—fading away in the mind of Marcus?

 

 

These
Immortals once had all the time in the world. Now it’s suddenly of
the essence.

“The
ghost of a wronged young woman in the village of Thores-Cross waits
230 years to have her story told in Perkins’s suspenseful and
atmospheric first Yorkshire Ghost novel”

BookLife by Publishers Weekly

Medal Winner, European fiction – 2015 IPPY Book Awards

 

*#1
Bestseller in 6 Amazon Categories, including Ghost Suspense, British
Horror and Gothic Romance

 

*Top
10 Bestseller in 8 more, including Historical Thrillers and Occult
Horror

 

*Over
100 5-STAR reviews on Amazon.com

 

 

Likened
by independent reviewers on Amazon to the Brontë sisters, Edgar
Allen Poe, Barbara Erskine and Nathaniel Hawthorne, Karen Perkins’
novels are filled with unflinching honesty and an acute understanding
of human nature. She explores not only the depths of humanity, but
the depths of human motivation behind the actions and pain people
inflict upon each other, as well as the repercussions of these
actions not only in the short term, but also the later generations
who live with the implications of the past.

 

 

Emma
Moorcroft is still grieving after a late miscarriage and moves to her
dream house at Thruscross Reservoir with her husband, Dave. Both Emma
and Dave hope that moving into their new home signifies a fresh
start, but life is not that simple. Emma has nightmares about the
reservoir and the drowned village that lies beneath the water, and is
further disturbed by the sound of church bells – from a church that
no longer exists.

 

 

Jennet
is fifteen and lives in the isolated community of Thores-Cross, where
life revolves about the sheep on which they depend. Following the
sudden loss of both her parents, she is seduced by the local wool
merchant, Richard Ramsgill. She becomes pregnant and is shunned not
only by Ramsgill, but by the entire village. Lonely and embittered,
Jennet’s problems escalate, leading to tragic consequences which
continue to have an effect through the centuries.

 

 

Emma
becomes fixated on Jennet, neglecting herself, her beloved dogs and
her husband to the point where her marriage may not survive. As
Jennet and Emma’s lives become further entwined, Emma’s obsession
deepens and she realises that the curse Jennet inflicted on the
Ramsgill family over two hundred years ago is still claiming
lives.

 

 

Emma
is the only one who can stop Jennet killing again, but will her
efforts be enough?

here. No one is safe.

 

 

 

A
skeleton is dug up at the crossing of the ways on Hanging Moor,
striking dread into the heart of Old Ma Ramsgill – the elderly
matriarch of the village of Thruscross. And with good reason. The
eighteenth-century witch, Jennet, has been woken.

 

A
spate of killings by a vicious black dog gives credence to her
warnings and the community – in particular her family – realise they
are in terrible danger.

 

 

Drastic
measures are needed to contain her, but with the imminent flooding of
the valley to create a new reservoir, do they have the ability to
stop her and break her curse?

Through
Jennet we
see how cruelty can
drive even the most ordinary people to hatred
and,
in Jennet’s case,
evil
Yorkshire
is in the grip of a heatwave, and Thruscross Reservoir has dried up
to reveal the remains of the drowned village of Thores-Cross beneath.
Playing
in the mud which coats the valley floor, four-year-old Clare
Wainwright finds an old inkpot, and can’t wait to show it to her
best friend, Louise. But when Louise’s mother, Emma, sees it, her
reaction is shocking, and both families are plunged into their worst
nightmares.
Emma
knows what the inkpot portends:
Jennet
has woken.
Now
she wants the children.
This
is not a gore-ridden, jump-scare horror story. This is more real than
that. Jennet is a story about the horrific things that people do to
each other, and the way we react to that maltreatment – which does
not always end with death.
Jennet’s
story is a horror story because it’s not necessarily fiction. It
reflects the way women were treated in the time that Jennet lived. It
reflects the psychology of the abuse cycle. And it reflects real
life. All of it.
If,
as I believe, the spirit does not die when the physical body dies,
then how many spirits are looking for vengeance today?
What
wrongs will you want to right when you pass through that veil? What
will I?
This
is the conclusion of Jennet’s story, which began in The Haunting of
Thores-Cross. I hope she finds peace. I really do.
