Galactic
Mandate: A Radical Cause
by
M.R. Richardson
Genre:
SciFi, Space Opera
 
The
galaxy is in turmoil. The two main powers, the Acolyte Empire and the
Clone Defense Force, vie for supremacy.

 

 

Caught
in between are the weaker Galactic Planetary League and independent
planets, pawns to be used and discarded in the greater game. The
peace of the galaxy rests on a powder keg…and the fuse is about to
be lit.

 

 

As
the son of the Acolyte Emperor God-Reign, Devante lives a life of
power and luxury that few can fathom.

 

 

Since
childhood, he has devoted his life to one thing: freeing the clone
slaves of the CDF and banning the practice of cloning throughout the
galaxy. But he is about to uncover a secret that goes to the heart of
the empire he loves and serves, one that will set him on a course of
vengeance and destruction that will shake the galaxy to its
core.

 

 

Against
this backdrop of war, treachery, and intrigue, Galactic Mandate tells
an epic saga of god-emperors and assassins, spies and queens,
princesses and slaves.

 

 

The
lives of all will be irrevocably changed as Devante embraces his
destiny—for when empires collide, no one is safe, and there is no
place in the galaxy to hide.

M.R.
Richardson, with a clear mastery of world-building, creates
compelling wild, cutthroat novels. Balancing vivid action, with
personal reflection, existential dilemmas, and richly detailed
worlds, his space operas are far more complex than first meets the
eye. Combining war, politics, and intrigue, his first novel Galactic
Mandate: A Radical Cause is an epic debut.

THE COLDIVIAN TRANSLATION GUIDE

 

Long ago, in the realm of Coldivor, its people – the Coltis – spoke their own language. After years of growth and mixing with humans (the Corporeal), they began to merge both English and Coldivian. Though the English language is mainly used today, the Coltis incantations and a few other terms remain in their native tongue. Below is a mini translation guide for some of the Coldivian terms, you are likely to come across in the first three books of The Water Rushes series.

One
Underground girl escapes from a soldiers’ raid. Lost and above
ground for the very first time, she has only one option to secure her
survival: the Legion—a government organization for teenagers with
no place left to run. Leave your identity at the gate, and join a
life of military service until you reach adulthood. It sounds ideal,
but the Underground girl knows that the System won’t stop looking
for its female runaway. So, she tells a lie about her gender.
And
it will change her forever.
Posing
as Raja, a boy-soldier, the Underground girl is thrown into Legion
life at its full, brutal speed. Here, she meets Senior Commander
Briggs, whose savage authority reigns over the teenage soldiers.
Amongst them are a band of oddballs known as the South Tower Rejects,
led by Stirling, a tall, savvy stranger with bright copper hair and
eyes that shine like oceans. There’s something hiding behind his
cocky smile, and Raja wants to know what it is.

The Dragons of Alsace Farm are loose… Dementia & Alzheimers

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Agnes, an 82-y-o French WWII survivor will teach Noah and Tayte the greatest lessons of their lives:

The strength of tested love.

The promise of new love.

The power of family love.

And the courage each requires.

In need of his own redemption, Noah Carter finally confronts his childhood hero, the once-beloved uncle who betrayed him. Instead of vengeance, he offers forgiveness, also granting Uncle John a most curious request—for Noah to work on the ramshackle farm of Agnes Deveraux Keller, a French WWII survivor with dementia.

Despite all Agnes has lost, she still has much to teach Noah. But the pair’s unique friendship is threatened when Tayte, Agnes’s estranged granddaughter, arrives to claim a woman whose circumstances and abilities are far different from those of the grandmother she once knew.
Items hidden in Agnes’s attic raise painful questions about Tayte’s dead parents, steeling Tayte’s determination to save Agnes, even if it requires her to betray the very woman she came to save, and the secret her proud grandmother has guarded for seventy years.
The issue strains the fragile trust between Tayte and Noah, who now realizes Tayte is fighting her own secrets, her own dragons. Weighed down by past guilt and failures, he feels ill-equipped to help either woman, until he remembers Agnes’s lessons about courage and love. In order to save Agnes, the student must now become the teacher, helping Tayte heal—for Agnes’s sake, and for his.

Laurie (L.C.) Lewis was born and raised in rural Maryland where she and her husband still reside. She admits to being craft-challenged, particularly lethal with a glue gun, and a lover of sappy movies. The Dragons of Alsace Farm, her eighth published novel, was inspired by a loved one’s struggle with dementia. Her women’s fiction novels include Unspoken (2004) and Awakening Avery (2010), written as Laurie Lewis. Using the pen name L.C. Lewis, she wrote the five volumes of her award-winning FREE MEN and DREAMERS historical fiction series, set against the backdrop of the War of 1812: Dark Sky at Dawn (2007), Twilight’s Last Gleaming (2008), Dawn’s Early Light (2009), Oh, Say Can You See? (2010), and In God is Our Trust, (2011).

She is currently completing a political suspense novel planned for a late spring 2017 release, and in March 2017 she will release a romance novel for Gelato Book’s “Destination Billionaire’s Series.” She loves to hear from readers, and she can be contacted at any of these locations.

The author provides us with excellent reading, especially if you know or care for a person with dementia. I have one, and many things in this book match what I have seen and done. Still, I was surprised at the insights on how to deal with people with this problem, or how to make them more responsive to your needs. I learned a few things in the pages of this book that I found interesting and it is a great read. The story of forgiveness of oneself is viewed in this story and helps readers find strength beyond their own.
Tate is a lovely woman that doesn’t know what she wants until she re-unites with her grandmother. Her mother had told her, years before, that her grandmother was dead. Agnes is the only person who has made her feel normal and Tate wants to reconnect with her.
Noah, on the other hand, has many ghosts of his own and has finally come to see his uncle, who caused him great sorrow when he was ten years younger. He left home and never looked back. Now he is back and finds his uncle almost on the door of death itself.
Agnes has a farm that needs great care, as much as she and the animal’s do. She forgets things and she loves the new guy who helps her on the farm. Noah see Agnes up close and identifies himself with her. He figures out ways to help her return to the present and be active in her everyday life.
All is well until Noah meets Tate and a collision course is drawn between them and Agnes.

crem-my-review

The Path of Destiny by Mike Shelton is an interesting high fantasy tale for Young Adults. It contains magic and great characters. I enjoyed this story of two best friends who just graduated and are ready to conquer the world. Then, one of them is chosen by a magic sword, a beautiful horse and can do magic… all in a kingdom that condemns magic users. The upper class condemns the outsiders or those who labor in the earth as a different kind of people. There are mentions of other kingdoms with magic, but the one the characters are from condemns it. It also condemns the love between a upper class member with a person of the lower class. This is the problem that the main character has, for he loves a farmer’s daughter.
The story is a good fantasy tale and interesting read. The author takes the reader, together with the characters, on a trip of self-discovery that will change their lives.
The story is told in a narrated manner, but has some dialogue that moves it forward at a good pace. It is the result of a good imagination.
The Path of Destiny by Mike Shelton is a great reading choice for all pre-teens and teens and is a clean story. They will find something interesting and entertaining throughout the book.

B-17 bomber crashes in German-occupied Austria

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

banner-7

Synopsis:
Just before their B-17 bomber crashes in German-occupied Austria, two of the three remaining crewmen manage to parachute out of the aircraft. Captain Charlie Banks and Corporal Samuel Aldridge find shelter in a barn, where they are discovered by a beautiful young Austrian woman. Despite the danger to herself and her family, Marianne Leichtner decides to help the two Americans. Her courage and character soon win Charlie’s heart.

crossinglines_final_rgb

When the Nazis come to investigate the plane crash, Charlie and Sam must escape through enemy territory. Just steps from freedom, they are captured by Italian fascists. Survival takes on a new meaning for the airmen, and Charlie begins to questions everything, including his faith. Only the hope of seeing Marianne again keeps him going over the long months in prison. But if he survives, will she still care for him? And will Charlie learn to trust in the Lord’s promises?

My Review:

Crossing Lines by Melanie Mason is an entertaining story of a bomber that falls down in enemy territory during WWII. I enjoyed the telling of this story that is not filled with horrible details and atrocities of war. It focuses more on the two men that escape from certain death and follows them to the end of the book. It has suspense and romance but neither is overpowering or becomes routine. Crossing Lines by Melanie Mason is a story that grips you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go. This clean tale will entertain all readers and mostly those who love a good, light war story mixed with romance.
Crossing Lines by Melanie Mason is about two American airmen that have to parachute from their airplane after a bomber excursion into enemy territory. It takes us through their narrow escape from death, the Nazi’s investigation of the crash, the help they find in a beautiful Austrian woman and her mother and their struggles to keep their faith strong in the light of imminent danger. This is an inspiring great read that is sure to become your favorite for years to come.
One thing I noticed with this story is that the pacing was faster than many other WWII stories I have read. I didn’t find any time that the descriptions got on the way of the telling. I enjoyed visualizing the different places and even the characters in my mind. What a super read!

Engines of Liberty Series… a steampunk or alternate history?

Friday, August 12th, 2016

tour banner

The book:

REBEL HEART

cover 1 small

In 1776, the American rebels were thwarted by British magic. The leaders were executed, but the surviving soldiers went into hiding and kept the revolution alive. By 1984 they have developed better weapons and machinery to even the odds. Now all these “technomancers” need is an army for their arsenal, and their newest recruit is 15 year-old Calvin Adler of Baltimore. The problem is, he’s got a pretty strong will, and might give the technomancers at bit of trouble in training…

SUICIDE RUN

cover 2 small

Calvin learns that the technomancers aren’t all good guys like he’d thought, and soon runs afoul of the worst of them. Now, with a bomb in his chest and a lot of ground to cover, he has a little over a week to save his life, or else become another casualty in the revolution. Meanwhile, an old enemy comes back stronger than ever, with ambition to spare…

PATRIOT’S GAME

PG Cover

Calvin is on the brink of death. The army is scattered, the commodore is dead, and the British mages know about the technomancers’ secret weapon. Just as all hope seems lost, Calvin and his friends find out the mages have a weakness, one that could end the war overnight and liberate the colonials.
But it will take a miracle to reach it…

The Interview:

Graham, how long have you been writing? I started in 1993 as a third grader, but started pursuing it seriously about ten years ago and I’ve been trying to get better ever since.

Wow! Tell us where you were born and where do you live now. Southern California then, Southern Nevada now. I am very much a product of the desert.

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer? Oh jeez. There is no right answer to this! I have been blessed with many great influences and mentors. I guess my third grade teacher was the one who really started this whole thing though. I give her lots of credit.

What is the name of your Serie? and what genre? The series is “Engines of Liberty,” and the books are REBEL HEART, SUICIDE RUN, and PATRIOT’S  GAME. They are a bit of fantasy, alternate history, and steampunk. Aimed at YA but good for all ages.

Tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb. The Brits used magic to win the American Revolution in 1776. Two hundred years later the Americans have built a huge army with steam and gas engines, plus a ton of firepower, and they want a rematch. Romance and adventure abound!

So interesting… What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives? Take an interest in history and open your imagination. I was a diligent daydreamer in my childhood and it brings me immense joy, I hope others take it up.

Chronicles of the Daemon Knights in Sorceress, a review

Sorceress, Chronicles of the Daemon Knights  by David Korinetz

Review for readersfavorite.com 

Chronicles of the Daemon Knights by David Korinetz, was a treat to read. It is well written and the story is charming and interesting. It moves quickly and keeps you glued to the pages at every turn.

51MF19O9dYL._SS300_

A beautiful, redheaded sorceress named Magdalen is not only caught in the dark nets of her former teacher but also in the heart of the commander of the Daemon Knights, both sworn enemies. Magdalen once possessed the power to command the firedrakes, a creature smaller than a dragon, with the aid of the Aedon, but now has been stripped of her powers by a wise and good wizard.

She was a dark wizard’s apprentice for some years until she wanted the power for herself. (more…)

Wendy, when did you first know you wanted to be an author?

When I was little teeny, I used to write stories using those fat crayons made for chubby little hands. I didn’t know what an author was, then, but I knew I wanted to tell stories. It’s been with me ever since.

Cute…What makes you passionate about writing?

My characters! I have this weird thing in my head—if I don’t write their story, I’m killing them, which is a completely different and much more real killing than killing them off in the story. If I don’t tell their story, I’m killing them before they have a chance to live. And I can’t do that. I want them all to live…so I can torture them.

I know exactly what you mean. What was the pathway like for you to get your first book published? Were you ever discouraged along the way? If so, how did you deal with it?

I lumped these three questions together because it’s sort of impossible to answer them all separately. I queried the first novel I ever finished. It took me two years to write it, and then two more to finally find a home for it. There was a ton of rejection and criticim. It hurt so much at first, and although everyone says it gets easier over time, I’m not sure it ever did for me. To be honest, I really struggled. But my adorable husband made me a deal. I had to query for one year. If, after one year, I hadn’t found a home for my story, I could quit and he wouldn’t pester me about it for the rest of my life. And since he’s adorable, I agreed. To deal with the discouragement, I wrote some more. I wrote the sequel to the book I was querying. I also wrote for the local paper. I kept myself busy. And I revised my first story so, so much. And then, the week before my year date was up, I got offered a contract. That same week, I got offered two more contracts, but I went with the first one because I felt like that was the right place for me. And that’s how Feudlings found its way into the world.

So happy it work for you. What books have most influenced your life? (more…)

Dondi Ratlif author of Destruction’s Daughter an interview

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Dondy, how long have you been writing? 

My first “novel” was typed out on a very old, metal ribbon typewriter my parents had. I wrote it on the entire front sheet of a page of notebook paper. I may have been around eight years old at the time. I’ve never stopped writing since.
Tell us where you were born and where you live now. 
I was born in Lamesa, Texas, which is about 60 miles south of Lubbock, Texas, on a map. Quite close to the New Mexico border as things go. I just moved to Cedar Hill, Texas, from Breckenridge, Texas.
How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it? 
They say that there’s nothing new under the sun. It’s really true. My point in saying that is simply this: if you have an idea that won’t let you go and keeps nagging at you, chances are high that it’s something you need to write about. I don’t see it in terms of “good enough” to write about. I’ve read some pretty boring books out there that other people have absolutely loved. If you’re passionate about the idea enough to get it on paper (or computer file), then it should be written. Even if the idea is one that’s been done before, it hasn’t been done with your brain and your voice.

Mary Ann, welcome to my blog. Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

Since my dad was active military, I was born on the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, which is located in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, on the Chesapeake Bay near the mouth of the Patuxent River.  After my father’s honorable discharge, we returned to Yonkers, New York, where I resided until relocating to Omaha, Nebraska, several years ago.

Military family? an honor to know you and my thanks to your family and your Dad.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

My manuscript took about six months to write.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?


Concordia is character from The Briton and the Dane trilogy who demanded her own story.  Of course, I had to comply with her request, and she comes of age in her story.

Very nice…What is the title of your book?

Twilight’s Ashes as Heaven Fades book one by Auler Ivis-readersfavorite.com

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

This is a totally entertaining book for adults. I say adults because they should have the patience to go through it and love it. There is nothing against a young adult reading it, only that is written in a way to help you savor every detail and the youth of today want to skim through too quickly to really enjoy it.

As the story line begins we are introduced to one of the main characters, (more…)

One day when they are coming back from the market, where they sell all their vegetables, which they steal from others, they have the scare of their life. (more…)
