Lost Angel in Paradise by Linda Ballou

Escape with Linda Ballou as she takes you on her favorite power-packed outdoor days along the sun-splashed California Coast from Malibu to Mendocino. Let your spirit free strolling long stretches of sand in solitude. Breathe deeply of the restorative energy of fern forests shaded by towering redwood giants. Kick-start creativity while meandering among flower-infused meadows, listening to wind voices off a full-blown sea. Get the rust off your soul and find harmony in nature. When you are done with your hike, tuck into tasty treats at a sweatband-friendly eatery Linda has tested personally. You have earned your calories! Linda implores you to explore, and to seize your day in the “Beauty Way”—a state of harmony in nature that the Navajo call Hozho. These daytrips can be enjoyed by anyone with a modicum of fitness and a spirit of adventure.

International Suspense Due by Michael Meyer

Two international thrillers in one

COVERT DREAMS

What if the government said that your missing wife never existed?

A business trip to the Middle East for Stan and Valerie Halsey ends in chilling confusion and despair as Valerie seemingly falls off the face of the earth, leaving no trace of her existence behind.

Back in the States, B.J. wakes up night after night in a cold sweat from the exact same torturous nightmare that takes place in a country he has never been to. Both B.J. and Stan suspect that they have been sucked into a conspiracy that threatens to consume them and everyone they love.

With time running out fast before they can get answers, they have unwittingly entered into a very dangerous game…one that they may not survive.

If you love fast-paced international thrillers, then take on COVERT DREAMS. It is like “reading Robert Ludlum and the Bourne series” – Dale Roberts, mystery writer.

“Don’t start reading this book on an evening when you have to get up early the next morning, because you’re going to find it hard to put down!” – Nick Russell, NY Times bestselling author of BIG LAKE

DEADLY EYES

Could murder threaten a rocky romance?

When Cuff and Rosie, laid-back lovers on their idyllic Caribbean paradise of St. Croix, are just beginning to move their relationship to the next level, they suddenly find themselves entangled in the crosshairs of an unknown stalker whose relentless pursuit knows no bounds. Now, with their lives on the line and time running short, they know they must act fast or they will die.

If you enjoy mysteries set in exotic locales, then don’t miss DEADLY EYES with its “fast paced action coupled with the mesmerizing and intense suspense.” (Marilou George – The Kindle Book Review)

Semifinalist for the Best Indie Books of 2012 award. It’s like having two books in one – with two alternative endings.

Cold Civil War by Matt Thomas

Meet James Edwards. He is at a crossroads in life. Recently, his father passed away, his girlfriend left him, and his dead-end job under a tyrannical boss has gotten worse. Amid his disillusionment, he dreams of writing a novel about America, especially its cultural and political divide.

Finally, James, who for so long has held himself back from accomplishing anything, makes a change. He leaves home and his job for a life on the road, seeking inspiration for his novel, especially America’s sights, people, and its dynamics. However, what begins as a spiritual journey of self-discovery turns into more than be bargained for. After encountering a group of racist, misogynistic men, he confronts them in a tirade that, unbeknownst to him, is caught on camera. Soon, James’ rant goes viral.

As James’ journey continues and he becomes recognized as an internet celebrity, he learns harsh truths that cause him to question himself and the country he loves. A chain of events post-Chicago leads James into decisions that inspire, anger, and challenge a troubled country and himself. Ultimately, James will commit an act that not only will change him forever, but may live in infamy in American culture.
