Fifty Years of Fear (Dark Lives Book 1)

By Ross Greenwood

Genre: Mystery & Suspense/Crime Fiction

Could you forgive murder? What if it was something worse?

A childhood accident robs Vincent of his memories, causing him to become sensitive and anxious around others. His differences attract bullies, and he comes to rely heavily on the support of his family.

After the devastating loss of his parents, a remarkable woman teaches him to embrace life and, little by little, he realises the world is far more forgiving than he imagined. When fragments of his memory return, he begins to unravel his past.

Who was his mother? What kind of a man is his brother, Frank? And why does death surround them?

Fate is cruel. History is dark. Things are not as they seem.

Perhaps he should have stayed at home.

“Goddess of the Wild Thing” by Paul DeBlassie III #Excerpts


Goddess of the Wild Thing Banner

———

EXCERPTS

Excerpt I

Eve sharpened her focus. She saw the sharp nail of a witch’s right finger tracing Graciéla’s image on a foggy mirror in a grungy bathroom, touching the center of the mirror with a hatred so intense, the glass burned red hot. The mirror in Graciéla’s kitchen cracked. Shards jettisoned at the old healer then were magically warded off and drifted in place about her head and neck.

Graciéla’s energy, tired as she was, had fended off the pointed shards. She hadn’t been impaled. But the strain had ushered her from one world to the next. Death came not by the hand of another but by a weakened mind and body defending itself.

Eve, shaken, allowed her soft touch to stay on Graciéla’s forehead, confirming the horror of what she’d seen. Shamanic wisdom, often discussed between the two kindred souls, spoke to Eve as she stroked her friend’s head, remembering that death provided passage for one whose life had been well spent and whose time had come.

Eve wept.

After a few moments, she closed her friend’s green eyes and whispered tenderly, “Always my friend, always love, always together in life and in death.” She stood and wiped the tears from her eyes. A gray-brown, green-eyed, great horned owl hooted from the largest cottonwood branch outside the back window.

Eve heard Shirley finishing her call to the EMTs and police, and then walking to the front of the store to await their arrival.

One large shard lay at the end of the table, sharp tip pointed outward. It reflected Eve’s image, a glowing red ember menacingly centered at the brow point.

 

Excerpt II

“Shirley spoke up, “Maybe we just gotta give it up and say there’s no good out there and no damn good men.” Shirley spat on the sidewalk, as she was prone to do when attitudes turned south and a pissed-off mood overrode a physician’s reserve. A petite woman, hovering around five-foot-three, she was a spitfire to friends and foes. Her red hair was a fine match for her spicy temperament. She never hesitated to snap her tongue, making an envious woman or cocky man shrivel and long to crawl into a nearby hole and cry. Shirley lived as a healer and a warrior, a woman who cared tenderly for the hurting and raged viciously at pretense and abuse.

Eve, Shirley, and two other friends, Tanya and Samantha, were plagued by man troubles the way pollution settles in during dusty days and humid nights in the Middle Rio Grande Valley of Aztlan del Sur. They were four esteemed professional women who could have any man they chose. Yet time and again, they went for the lower, the bad, the  worst. They sabotaged the good, the permanent. Commitment was a frightening consideration for four women who’d suffered childhoods of parental dysfunctional neglect and split-ups. They often quipped, “We found each other because like finds like.” Tonight, Eve’s troubles were front and center. She’d done it again or at least worried she had. The glitch in the man was in the type she attracted: charmers—striking and untrue. Suffering had begun. Time was critical. To stick it out or get out was her dilemma.  Things with a new man had taken a terrifying turn.”

Genre: Paranormal Romance/Fantasy

Enjoy the complete Howl Series in one boxed set.

Raising the Phoenix, The Howl Series: Book One

The Alpha is the leader of the pack, a revered position, one that can’t be inherited, only earned.

For ten years my father groomed me to take over in the event something happened to him. I guess I never expected it to happen so soon. I thought I’d have more time. I thought I’d at least graduate from college first. Instead, life threw the Phoenix Pack a curveball. My father was murdered, and my mother died with him. Suddenly, I’m responsible for my twin sisters, and everyone else. I’m forced to make some tough decisions. And if everyone in the pack has their way, one of those decisions will involve finding my mate. They should’ve given me an easier task, like brokering world peace or curing cancer. After all, what male would ever volunteer for this, having a mate who’s also his Alpha, leaving his pack to join hers, and giving up everything he has ever known?

———

Cursing the Moon, The Howl Series: Book Two

Savannah Silver has met her mate.

Her wolf has chosen, but the Alpha who can silence others with a look and command her pack with a word has been refused. While she waits for him to come to his senses, Savvy works to find her parents’ killers, rebuild the homestead and ensure Shelby’s future.

Quinn Holderman has met his match.

Being part wolf and part husky has always been a disadvantage. Becoming a rogue was his only hope for happiness. Then Quinn met Savvy. In his mind, his reasons for denying her made perfect sense. In reality, he has suffered every second they are apart.

———

Healing the Heart, The Howl Series: Book Three

Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes love can’t conquer all. Sometimes healing a heart takes time.

Quinn doesn’t have time. Instead, what he has is a looming deadline. The mating must take place by the full moon or not at all. He thought he had made up his mind. He thought he could live with his decision. Then Savvy disappeared.

Savvy is an all or nothing kind of girl. She needs a strong mate, a decisive mate, a loving and supportive mate. Unfortunately, Quinn refused to be that mate. Losing him was breaking her heart. Staying busy was her only coping mechanism. Ignoring her needs and focusing on the pack helped her find everything she ever needed.

Sometimes the threat of losing everything can change minds and hearts. Sometimes the promise of a better future and a determined mate can heal a heart in record time.

He needed more time. She needed her mate. Together, they’re cursing the moon.

#Review “They Said I Wouldn’t Make It: But Here I Am” by Wanda Howard


They I Wouldn't Make It cover


4/5 Stars!

This nonfiction memoir packs a powerful punch.

Except for brief periods in her young life, the author’s journey to adulthood was problematic and filled with obstacles… and sinkholes.

Being born to a mother who already had children… and a substance abuse problem foreshadowed the rocky path the author would travel even as a young child.

The bright spot and perhaps anchor for young Wanda was a committed grandmother. She went above and beyond, helping her grandchildren for as long as she could, never giving up hope her daughter would turn her life around and be the mother her children needed.

It’s obvious the faith the grandmother had in Wanda helped shaped her character. But, I believe it also hindered her mentally and emotionally, leading her to hide her pain in silence, and later, alcohol.

This is not a pretty story. But it does not seek to place blame. It’s about understanding people, especially family. It’s about the emotional power of forgiveness and understanding the need to forgive yourself. And it’s about the choices we make as we move through this life and the ripple effect they have on those around us.

My one issue with this read—it needs a professional edit. There is a moving story here which could be lost to others because of grammar and syntax errors.

Still, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It’s raw and gritty and inspiring. The author doesn’t absolve herself of anything. She gives the reader the chance to take a short walk in her shoes and understand why she’s blessed to still be here.

Enjoy!


“They Said That I Wouldn’t Make It: But Here I am

Genre: Personal Growth/Self-Help

Release Date: August 31, 2017

Amazon KU


This story is about survival & forgiveness. My mother gave birth to me at the age of 26 and was not too sure if she could take care of me. Physically or emotionally. At this time she was already struggling to take care of two kids that were 6 and 7 years old and adding another child to her equation, just did not bring her any comfort.

I was told by my grandmother that she talked my mother into keeping me and she had hoped that me coming into this world would slow her down or stop my mother from snorting cocaine and smoking weed. My grandmother was wrong. The drug and alcohol use continued and increased. When I was 10 my mother invited a couple of friends over to play cards and socialize. I can tell you right now neither of the two happened. The glass table in the living room was filled with cocaine powder and razors.Most of my childhood and early adult life was spent looking and trying to fulfill an empty space that I felt. I made a lot of mistakes with money and relationships because of this feeling. I almost lost my daughter because of it. One day I woke up after a night of excessive drinking and crashing my Honda Civic into a wall. I had to make a decision. Did I want to live or die? I chose to live.


Biography

Life Coach, Writer, & Silence Breaker

I encourage, I Inspire young women to change the direction of their path for the sake of their future. I believe that you can make it after the pain. I am the ear & the support system for women who struggle with forgiving and moving forward from their past.

Three years of psychology & my personal life experience has allowed me to gain the knowledge needed to help others heal, forgive, and move forward.

The Purpose

Silence is not the answer to breaking the vicious cycle of pedophilia, harassment, rape, abuse, or risky behavior. I’m breaking the silence & telling my stories to motivate young women to forgive & move forward from their past. There’s a code of silence that has broken the strength & courage of young women who were just trying to live and be free. Over 60% of women are exposed to sexual abuse and physical violence before the age of 16. Most of them are sworn to secrecy and threatened by their abuser to shut them up. Others are persuaded by family members that by reporting the act of rape and or physical violence that it will destroy their family. If you put 10 women inside of one room, it is more than likely that at least nine have been victims of pedophilia, harassment, and/or sexual assault; or they have a friend, cousin, sister, aunt, mother, or grandmother who has been victimized.

“Sarah (Rare Women Series Book 1)” by Yarro Rai


Sarah cover

“Sarah (Rare Women Series Book 1)”

by Yarro Rai

Genre: Women’s Fiction/Literary

Release Date: October 9, 2017

Amazon KUGoodreads Button


Hope is how this book can be defined.

The story of a naive Sarah growing up in a post-Taliban era in Afghanistan. Her exposure to the only television in the village through her best friend Shakip opens the window to the endless imagination and hard impression of western women riding bikes and kicking asses.

Obsessed by the kick-ass heroine, she grows up dreaming of joining Hollywood and conquering it with her wits. However, there is a war going on, and the rebel inside her pushes her to join the commander pigeon squad the only women warlord in the country to fight against the lurking Taliban. The very decision of her bravery contains her in her own paradox.

One side there is a big dream of going Hollywood and being an inspiration the other is to stay in her godforsaken place. To fight the good fight and die unknown. She was always supposed to be the hero of her journey, but she can choose only one to be a hero in reel life or in real life.


Biography

Born in India, bred in a village with mixed race and color. He has first-hand experience of raw India and the struggle of a lower-middle-class. His struggle didn’t end there, growing up with a spark of imagination was hard. where society still favors the traditional job seeking process and being an artist is a taboo.

The outpouring of his rage through his dark poetries lead to the Dark Poetry series starting in 2013 with lyrical quotes of my life. This book is no longer available because it was too dark and suicidal. However, the second book DARK ROMEO followed by the recent one PHILOPHBIA (The hip version) has kept the series alive.

His fictional journey started when he published his own version of Romeo and Juliet NEVER MEANT TO BE and garnered top reviews on all platform. It was not until late 2015 when he really found his voice and knew what exactly inspired him.

The RARE GIRL SERIES is the reflection of that voice. Every book in the series will be about a Girl/women with rare quality. No unnecessary sexualized female character, no carrying on the image of main-stream media, but real ground reality story of women in all the corners of the world with a pinch of imagination on it. The first book of the series SARAH was published in October 2017 with the second book due in 2018.

Rai is also the creator of http://allforauthors.com/ a website for struggling authors. The website contains writing contracts, free critiques and financial aids for upcoming authors.

There is only one weird thing about him–he likes to act out his character to record the reaction from his friend and strangers. So, if someday you meet him for a book signing and he is acting weird just know that he is expecting a weird reaction from you. He is not insane.
