A Heart Transplant Survivor Story


Date Published: December 12, 2023

Publisher: Acorn Publishing


Darla Calvet is a thirty-nine-year-old working mom whose life turns upside down when she is diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Suddenly, fear threatens her dreams for the future as doctors’ appointments replace her daily routines and she realizes she may not live to see her daughters grow up. After dying twice while waiting for a new heart, Darla begins to understand her own resiliency—her heart may be weak, but her mind refuses to give up.

My Life in Stitches: A Heart Transplant Survivor Story is a candid, witty account of one woman's determination to transform a devastating prognosis into an inspiring fight for survival. Darla’s story offers insight into the complex world of medicine with a dose of humor about her challenges and victories as a heart transplant patient. In this sensitive, thorough, and informative debut, Calvet brings compassion and gentle wisdom to a difficult subject in hopes of demystifying the uncertainties that inevitably accompany long-term, life-threatening medical decisions.

Tour Kick Off: The Keeper of the Book by Ryland Harris #blogtour #nowontour #actionadventure #rabtbooktours

Action Adventure

Date Published: November 13, 2023


In the year 2043, World Council Edict 1735B proclaimed that all of the world religions were to be outlawed in the interest of public safety. Houses of Worship were labeled centers of dissension and attending any underground religious service was punishable by imprisonment and relocation. To possess any religious artifact or Holy Book was a mandatory death sentence. Jenny Keane is a Believer, a Christian and the proud owner of a Holy Bible given to her by her Grandmother. Michael Keane, her husband, is a former Special Forces Operative. He is not a believer in the holy teachings of any religion. Michael gave up the warrior path to live a cherished, peaceful life with his family. Jenny and the children, while attending an illegal religious service are captured by sadistic One World troops and taken to a reeducation camp. This sets Michael out on a one man rescue mission to bring his family home and nothing short of death will stop him. Against impossible odds he walks a path of revenge and destruction with no negotiation, no rules of engagement and no mercy for his enemies. He is aided by the unseen prayers of the faithful and years of experience in killing his foes.

Release Blitz: No Escape by Bill Runner #promo #releaseday #thriller #rabtbooktours @author_runner


Axel Blaze Thriller Book 6


Date Published: December 1, 2023



When dreams and nightmares collide, there’s no place left to run.

Dawn breaks over Bison Creek, a sleepy little Wyoming town, to reveal a scene of mayhem. Two bodies lying inside the police station. Both brutally killed. One of them a cop. A man covered in blood sprawled on the steps outside. Conscious but disoriented. Beside him, a gun and a stained Ka-Bar knife.

It’s an open-and-shut case. Every shred of evidence points to Ex-Marine Staff Sergeant Logan Davis, pushed over the edge by his acute PTSD. Logan knows no lawyer can prove him innocent. He calls the only man he knows will move heaven and earth to get to the truth: Axel Blaze.

A bloody trail leads Blaze to a cult leader with ties to rogue pharmaceutical company, preying on the vulnerabilities of troubled veterans, using them as pawns in his nefarious game. These power players will do anything to bury the truth. But they underestimate one thing—a relentless adversary who will go to any lengths to expose them.
