Under the Nail Polish



Under The Nail Polish
by By Tina Griffith


Everyone has secrets that they’d rather keep hidden, but we all know that these private matters have a tendency of spilling out at the most inopportune moments. And when a privileged piece of information does leak out and it gets exposed, it can sometimes change our lives so drastically, that there’s no turning back. For in that fleeting explosion when we first learn of the shocking deception, our world suddenly gets transformed into utter chaos and fear, and it typically has us running for shelter.

The four main characters in this story, are all hiding something that they’d rather not have anyone know about. Regrettably, the terrible secrets which each one of them had buried deep in their past, begins to bubble to the surface. With deceit and murder lingering in the air, can any of them survive the consequences of having their pasts revealed?

Evaline Transcendent



Evaline Transcendent
by Timothy Bateson

Evaline is the shipboard computer on the Miranda Two, a colony ship destined for the planet Karman-III-Delta. She is possibly Earth's last hope of establishing a working off-world colony. However, her predecessor stopped reporting home, so now she and the colonists must establish what happened to the previous colony.

The Miranda Two has been traveling for twenty years, and now it's time for Evaline to wake the crew and colonists in preparation or arrival at their destination. Can Evaline and the crew figure out what happened to the Miranda One expedition, and what price will they have to pay for the answers?

Note From the Author: This is the second release of "Evaline Transcendent", which originally appeared in the "Across the Karman Line" anthology. Since that release, I have revisited the story and expanded on some aspects, and rewritten others. At it's core, this is exactly the same story but reimagined for a wide audience.

Originally standing at around 8,500 words, this new release boasts a word count of closer to 14,000. I hope that those of you who have read the original story will discover new aspects to it when reading this version. For those coming to it for the first time, enjoy!



Classics: Why and how we can encourage children to read them

2017 CIPA EVVY Award - Gold Award Winner in Academic/Reference
2017 Global EBook Awards - Gold Award Winner in Education/Non-fiction
2017 Literary Classics Book Awards - Gold Award Winner - College -Instructional/Guide Book
Mom's Choice Awards® Silver Award Recipient (May 2017)

With the aid of the various techniques mentioned in this book, I hope to propagate the reading of Classics to everyone . . . every student, parent, and educator. Through the use of these techniques, parents and educators will be able to introduce students to the rich world of classic literature without the negative feelings that often result when students are exposed to new, more difficult material. The book also focuses on the importance of reading good literature, methods for encouraging students to do so, and the lifelong benefits children will reap from exposure to classic literature. It is my hope that this book will encourage everyone to make reading the classics a habit rather than a chore. We must do so, for the welfare of the modern generation and those to follow.

The Liberation of Paul



The Liberation of Paul
by Jim Donahue


When Paul Sarin befriends Riley Bennett one night at a bar, he couldn’t have imagined where this friendship would take him. Riley introduces Paul to a world of extreme retribution and revenge by taking him into the inner circle of the Elites. The Elites assist victims struggling with past abuse—and more often than not, their abusers. Riley and the Elites support victims in destroying their demons, in turn setting those victims free of the memories that have weighed them down. All victims confront their demons and handle them as they see fit. Riley eventually grows to almost messiah status with followers in the thousands.

A compelling psychological thriller, The Liberation of Paul explores the darkest and most twisted aspects of humankind and sheds a healthy beam of light on them in more ways than one. While the Elites are executing their orders, we peer into the mind of Paul, exploring his own pain, trauma, and hope. Good and evil exist in everyone, and the sheer effort to balance these attributes proves a fight in and of itself.

Steel, Blood and Fire



Steel, Blood & Fire
by Allan Batchelder

On the march, around the campfire, and in the taverns, they tell incredible stories about Tarmun Vykers, the Reaper – how he’s never been cut in battle, how he once defeated hundreds of men by himself, how he exterminated an entire people over an insult. These stories make Vykers seem like a god, but he is a man, an arrogant, ruthless and bloodthirsty man. For all that, he may be the only thing standing between the human race and utter annihilation at the hands of the mad wizard who calls himself the End-of-All-Things. Against this backdrop, smaller, lesser folks struggle to fulfill their own destinies, folks like Aoife, burdened with a secret so dark she is driven to do the unimaginable and seek an alliance with fey powers no mortal has ever encountered.
