In the midst of the Great Depression, a man travels east whilst the desperate many travel west in search of the elusive employment that the Promised Land could bring. It is 1934 and Jack Gray, family man and farmer from Nebraska, has embarked upon a compelling trek across the states with New York City being his destination.
A drifter looking for work on Jack's farm has mistakenly identified Jack as a gangster from the Big Apple that had mysteriously disappeared years earlier, leaving furious enemies baying for blood. However, the transient flees before being convinced that his perception was the wrong one. In the wake of the encounter, Jack's father is forced to reveal the startling family secret that means Jack has to depart in an attempt to intercept the stranger intent on leading a pack of vengeance-craving mobsters back to Jack's home.
Reluctantly leaving his family during the most desperate of times, Jack must rely on his own resilience and the kindness of strangers along his journey, where the horizon is often as remote as his chances of catching the desperate drifter hungry for redemption salvaged from a life in exile.
Detective Bates is undercover, tasked with infiltrating a criminal syndicate with a view to reaching the infamously anonymous mastermind that heads it. Knowledge of his assignment is limited to his Chief Inspector and another Detective, Palahniuk, a divorced and disgruntled veteran, who is finding his workload demanding enough with a serial killer to catch and leads being thin on the ground.
When their cover story comes back to bite them, they are forced to bring in an ambitious detective to act as Bates’ wife. The following months result in tragedy and Bates’ despairing freefall as manipulation and murder draws Bates and Palahniuk deeper into an investigation that Palahniuk had hoped to distance himself from.
A series of unexpected and mysterious events present them with moral dilemmas and stomach-wrenching challenges as their probing uncovers a system of corruption that flows through the many strata of society.
A variety of characters fuel a labyrinth plot of tragedy, murder, mystery and suspense, which blurs the distinction between those who are on the wrong side of the law and those who are teetering on the brink.
Please consider reviewing my gay romance novel, Written In The Stars, a 60,000 word novel about love, war and identity. I put a lot of heart into it and I'd like to to find a wider audience.
[i]The year is 2243. Mankind has reached for the stars, creating colonies on Titan and the cold, distant Nereid. Where man goes, war follows, and now two factions warring on Earth have taken their cultural and religious war into space in hopes of dominating Earth’s global government, the Assembly.
On one side stands the Moral League, a loose grouping of religious nations and moral conservatives whose aim is to destroy the Freedom Alliance, a group of progressive nations who they claim are leading the human race towards destruction.
Rejected by his family for his homosexuality, Samuel Walden finds himself joining the Alliance’s Space Force. Posted to the fleet’s flagship, the Northampton, Sam meets the ship’s crew officer, Major Tom Averay, and the two embark on a relationship that will change their lives.
Love, war, humanity, friendship, sacrifice and death weave through this action-packed romantic novel. Will Sam and Tom work out their feelings in the midst of darkness and uncertainty? Will the Alliance survive against crushing odds to preserve the human rights it stands for?[/i]
This is really great. I would like to add mine to the list, also - and I will chip in and start clicking, reading and reviewing

Believe it or not, mermaids are real. That is if you can believe Navy Commander Frank Reeves, who has come knocking on marine biologist Gillian Keller's door determined to recruit her into a top secret operation known as Project Mer. OSI has special plans for the mermaid, Onara. But first they must keep her alive and learn how to communicate with her. Soon the military and their civilian team will learn a deadly secret; the Si Raen (pronounced sigh-rain) of Muir Tearmann are not only formidable with a blade, but also possess a power only hinted at in mythology. When Onara's sister, Queen Alari, comes to her rescue, things turn deadly, as the Mer begin a blood thirsty retaliation and Hawaii's tourist population is caught in the crossfire.
Ashburg, California; the city that’s split into rich and not rich, the upper class and the middle class, the snobs and the down-to-earth…that’s how the teenagers perceived it, anyway. And it all stemmed from two schools’ rivalries. The rivalry has grown now that there are a set of twins that go to Ashburg Arts and a set of twins that go to Ashburg Academy that don’t see eye to eye.
Reagan and Ronan Jacoby thought that their only problem was wondering if their cop father, Elijah would make it home from work every day. That is, when he wasn’t trying to keep them out of trouble. They didn’t think their father dating would complicate things even further.
Savannah and Mickayla Powers thought their only problem lied in the intense dislike they had of each other. They should be classified as fraternal twins rather than identical. The only thing they can agree on is that their mother, famous fashion designer Dallas, was acting strange.
The four girls’ lives are turned upside down when they realize that they have something in common, more than just their schools’ rivalry and their own problems. There’s a shocking secret that’s at play…do they have it in the cards to figure it out?
War can do terrible things to the hearts and minds of even the best of men, but for U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Tyrone Banks the senseless deaths and unnecessary violence in Vietnam have beaten him down and smothered the compassion and good that was once inside of him. Grief stricken and suicidal; the extreme guilt over the awful things he’s done pushes the young Marine beyond his breaking point until death feels like his only remaining option.
Rather than eating a bullet, Tyrone volunteers for Tunnel Rat duty hoping to finally find release but instead of his carefully planned honorable death, what the Marine finds down in the dark is a backdoor to Purgatory, a secret entrance into the afterlife where he’ll get one last chance to right all the terrible wrongs that constantly haunt him. It won’t be easy, though. Nothing worthwhile ever is. If Tyrone thought the things lurking in the jungle of Vietnam were bad, what’s waiting for him on the dark side of Heaven is worse.
I have sampled some really interesting books listed here.
For a quick read (and a warning to the ladies), I just published Edward, Con Extraordinaire (Short)
Edward is a dreamboat of a man, especially to the well-to-do middle-aged ladies he courts. Their gifts are bestowed upon him freely. He makes their fantasies come true as they blush from brow to breast. Unbeknownst to them, however, the dapper Edward has his own dreams; darker dreams. And still, they believe in him and support him.
Too far fetched? Remember: These stories happened to Edward’s victims. They could happen to you.
