Gifted or cursed? Isobel is a healer, and the Hawks who accepted her, broken and different as she was, need her help. But she must hide the truth behind her healing power. She is an empath.

John Deighton, The Prophet, is back in Innis and stoking the embers of bigotry and superstition, scouring the realm and imprisoning mindgifted Aurels. When he corners Isobel, will she fight back or succumb to her old fears and lingering scars of the Beast of Monaughty? Will she answer the call of a healer if it costs her everything she loves?

Far across the sea, Tobias Buchanan is racing against time to build New Rhynn as a haven for his clan. As the noose of oppression squeezes tighter in Innis, the Hawks may soon be forced to choose between their homeland and their way of life. Can he earn a place for his Hawks amongst the Este of Tallu? Can he prove Rhynns are worthy of their trust?

Meanwhile, the Este are discovering their own place in the Awakening and the Joining. Spirit runners grow more powerful by the year, and the Mists hover closer over Tallu. But will it be enough when the water rises? Will they be ready before the cycle ends?

Path of the Spirit Runner is the enthralling continuation of the Rootstock Saga. Evolution and oppression. Magical mindgifts and dragon science. The characters you loved in Legend of the Storm Hawks come of age and weave their own threads in the Patterns.

Legend of the Storm Hawks
Rootstock Saga, Book 1
Publisher: Each Voice Publishing
Published: January 2020

Someday soon, your world will end. Ending is not as final as it sounds. Our world has ended before. When it does, be patient. Those of your time will linger and watch new cycles unfold. Some will walk this spinning blue rock again. A few will shape its destiny.

Get lost in the story. The richly detailed fantasy adventure you've been looking for is here. Stunning world-building. Sweeping cast of unforgettable characters. A riveting saga of the magic evolving in us all. Perfect for fans of George R. R. Martin, Brent Weeks, and Brandon Sanderson.

Legend of the Storm Hawks introduces the Rootstock Saga, four novels all due to release in 2020. Not a light read, this is serious fantasy for serious fantasy fans. Set on a future Earth, our own history echoes from the shadows. Adversity awakens gifts in this tale of evolution and survival. Science meets fantasy in a burgeoning of psychic and psionic power, and the mindgifted struggle with bigotry, abuse, theocracy, gender roles, climate change, and the temptations of power and privilege. Their intricately interwoven POV voices and plots converge in a long, rewarding end game.

A master player convinces the pawn the move is its own. Nigel has been at the game longer than most, but lately the pawns keep turning into rogue knights. It’s damned inconvenient of them, considering the world is about to end again.

The Watchers will soon declare this cycle over, as they have so many cycles before, shrugging off yet another rise and fall of humankind, and giving the dragons another turn at dominion.

Brynmohr is King of the Firstborn, and Twelvestones is the last bastion of a once-mighty nene dynasty. As the first people to walk the earth, the Firstborn consider it their birthright to rule over mankind. Half-breeds between their kinds are always sterile, but the daughters born of Brynmohr’s irrational affection for a woman are defying the Patterns.

Sethlyan and Isobel are unaware they’re expendable pawns in an increasingly complex game. Seth is the second son of the Second of Aleron. He’s tired of hearing rumors he and his friends are the prophesied Storm Hawks, destined to free Rhynn from centuries of oppression. He knows better. So does the Other, the voice only he can hear.

Isobel survived the Beast of Monaughty. Her father is dead, but his brutality haunts her. When her brother, the Rhi’Iverach, forges an alliance with the Hawks of Aleron, Isobel finds herself promised to a stranger named Sethlyan.

Her trust is hard to earn. His is hard to give.

A deadly attack leaves them with a telepathic bond neither wants, and awakens mindgifts they struggle to accept. When rebellion brings Nigel and his charges to the precipice of war, they must choose between hiding their secrets or wielding their power, fighting their oppressors or sacrificing freedom for peace.

Tour Kick Off: Venom! by Thomas A. Burns Jr. #booktour #nowontour #kickoff #giveaway #mystery #rabtbooktours @3Mdetective



Mystery
Publisher: Tekrighter, LLC
Date Published: 1 March, 2020

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

A spooky mansion in the Georgia mountains with an outrageous cast of characters. Spiders, snakes, meth-heads and serial killers, oh my! Venom! ain’t your average gothic mystery, folks.

But who would expect it to be when Natalie McMasters is involved? She’s fallen madly in love with two people—her wife, Lupe, and Danny, her partner at the 3M Detective Agency. Rather than choose one of them as her life partner, she’s decided to have them both, and roped them into a relationship retreat in rural Georgia to learn how to live as a polyamorous family.

But Nattie finds more than she bargained for in the sleepy town of Greypeak. A methamphetamine operation. A snake-handling preacher. A retired FBI agent hunting a serial killer. And a charismatic psychologist who just might have his own agenda for his clients.

Nattie ultimately finds herself in the most dangerous situation she’s ever faced, which may well solve her relationship problems by costing her life. Is this really the last book in the Natalie McMasters series?






Thomas A. Burns, Jr. is the author of the Natalie McMasters Mysteries. He was born and grew up in New Jersey, attended Xavier High School in Manhattan, earned B.S degrees in Zoology and Microbiology at Michigan State University and a M.S. in Microbiology at North Carolina State University.

Conan Doyle, Dorothy Sayers, John Dickson Carr, Erle Stanley Gardner and Rex Stout, to name a few. Tom has written fiction as a hobby all of his life, starting with Man from U.N.C.L.E. stories in marble-backed copybooks in grade school. He built a career as technical, science and medical writer and editor for nearly thirty years in industry and government. Now that he's truly on his own as a novelist, he's excited to publish his own mystery series, as well as to contribute stories about his second most favorite detective to the MX anthology of New Sherlock Holmes Stories.

Tour Kick Off: Western Wishes by Susan Horsnell #blogtour #nowontour #giveaway #sweetromance #westernromance #christianromance



Sweet/Christian Western
Date Published: 2 February 2020

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Abigail Miller helps run her mother’s diner in the town of Hopeful, Colorado.

How could any man possibly be interested in her when she considers herself too tall, too plain and not curvy enough? Ahead of curls which refuse to be tamed also don’t help.

Working from sun up to sundown, with the exception of Sunday mornings off to attend church, doesn’t leave much time for courting, so she is resigned to her fate of being left a spinster.

Will a wish made at the town well during a full moon ever be answered?

Max Long is the eldest son of a well-respected ranching family. His sister is Abigail’s best friend and also a friend to both him and his brother. He’d never thought of the tall, beautiful lady in that way.

Overhearing a conversation, he wonders if his feelings for Abigail could run deeper than mere friendship?

How will Max react when Abigail’s life is in danger?

Can the wishing well work its magic and bring her home safely?

Will a wish made at the town well during a full moon ever be answered?



I live in sunny Queensland, Australia and retired after 37 years of Nursing.

My husband of 45 years, together with our elderly Jack Russell Terrier and extremely opinionated 26-year-old Cockatiel, enjoy exploring the country.

When we are at home, we spend our time renovating our home.

I write a variety of stories including Western Historical Romance, Contemporary Romance, Male/Male, Menage and Shapeshifter.

Each book has a strong focus on storyline with romantic interest building throughout.

I explore real-life issues from kids on the streets to motorcycle war and put my own twist on each one.

Book Blitz: Defeat of the Wicked Iniquitous by William Curtis Woolf #promo #excerpt #economicthriller #thriller #politicalthriller #rabtbooktours


An Inspired Epic Thesis and Political-Economic Thriller
Published: December 2019

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Defeat of the Wicked Iniquitous is a fictionalized illustration of the new Middle-Class Capitalism Economic System and the Independent People’s Global Enterprise. It is written and designed for reality, to non-violently revolutionize working and poor people’s own independent economic power, to build a prosperous, just, safe, clean, beautiful and peaceful new world.In the great Revolutionary War of Economic Independence, the Neo-Caps (the New Capitalists) are ferocious non-violent capitalist warriors. They are the People, the students and working-class owners, worldwide, of the Independent People's Global Enterprise. Together they crush the crony capitalist oligarchs, and the evil Trill Empire, forever. And the People rule the world !!!!






Excerpt

The Independent People’s Global Enterprise


July 4 of the year 2030. The new capitalists or Neo-Caps, as they are called, celebrate all around the world in the most spectacular celebrations ever seen. Together they won the Great Revolutionary World War of Economic Independence. The Neo-Caps crushed crony capitalist plutocrats across the globe and now democratically control the global economy and their respective governments.

The Neo-Caps are the owners of the Independent People's Global Enterprise, larger than all the remaining giant corporations in the world combined. Neo-Caps independently control their own retail markets. The People's Enterprise defeated most of the largest retail corporations throughout the world in a very brutal economic war of capitalism, a battle that started on July 4, 2020, with the worldwide Declaration of Economic Independence.  

The People became the new capitalists, officially incorporating their own powerful Independent People’s Global Enterprise. Through a decade of capitalist "warfare" they beat the retail crony capitalists at their own game. Together, all Neo-Caps are owners of the largest and most powerful corporations in the world. They have more influence over their governments than all former crony plutocrats combined.

As the new rich, the Neo-Caps have the power and systemic resolve to provide lasting prosperity, which in turn gives rise to justice and world peace. It's a beautiful new world. The question is: How in the world did the People, the Neo-Caps, do it? 



A Trill Island Surprise



The year was 2022. The Honored Guest couldn’t believe his good fortune. He was finally arriving at Trill Island, a place he could only imagine before and had always wanted to visit. He’d been briefed that his coming and going would be conducted with the utmost of discretion, and that is why his bodyguards had been instructed to stand down for the day. It all worked out very smoothly.

The Guest watched in wonder as the cloaked island appeared and its waterfall entrance parted to let his chopper into the Trill Island landing pad. What a wonder of technology! He disembarked and was immediately escorted to the dining area where all the Trills were assembled around a long table. The Guest was seated and took a quick head count, assessed who was among them and noted a few surprising faces. Since he surely had been invited to become one of them, he would be Number 14. The Guest thrilled at the thought, with goosebumps running up and down his spine.

The thirteen Trills had apparently just finished a lavish feast; servers were clearing plates and refreshing wine glasses, and not one offered him a dish. Odd . . . Ah, here it comes. He was served a layered chocolate concoction and a glass of bubbling spring water. As he ate a few luscious bites and drank a few sips, the Trill to his right began to speak in a loud and decisive tone: “You’ve been invited here today as our guest of honor. Welcome.”

The chocolate mousse thing was really delicious, and the Guest could feel each heavenly bite on his palate. He felt warmed by its yumminess. The Trill continued: “We are well aware of your recent and past financial losses. Your many foul schemes have taken a major toll on our own positions, exposing many of us to losses beyond any measure we’ve ever before endured.”

Was he hearing this correctly? It almost sounded like he was being reprimanded. And Jeez Louise, was he ever feeling a warming sensation! He stopped eating, took a large gulp of his spring water, and looked more directly at the speaker, who paused at length before he continued: “Because of your errors of judgment and flagrant disregard for those who made it possible for you to attain your positions of power, both in government and personal wealth, we sentence you to a sacrificial event on the sacred Trill altar. Follow me!”

The Guest did his best to respond to the speaker, but no sounds came out of his slack-jawed mouth. Nor could he even stand on his own feet. But it needn’t have worried him, as he was aided to do so by two well-muscled manservants who stepped forward and took him from his place at the table, one holding each arm. . .

Mike is a sports fanatic who seems to have everything going for him: a recent growth spurt, a best friend who’s even more sports-obsessed than he is, and a (mutual?) crush on Kirsten Howard, the best player on the girls’ basketball team. Yep, everything’s shaping up nicely…. until he gets injured and his friend gets crazy. All the sudden Mike’s life isn’t looking so great, and that’s before a scandal that implicates both Kirsten and her coach, aka Mike’s father.
