Genre(s): Fantasy

Description: “In his search for the origin of the human race, Liam MacAskill travels to another planet and comes face to face with the Devil himself. He’s driven to claim sanctuary from the monks and nuns at Tridor Monastery, where another stranger to the land lies in a coma.

Liam teams up with Arthean, a Tridorian monk with a dark past and a heart of gold. At first glance, the two seem to be polar opposites, but are they really that different? Together with the monk’s Ilanenorian friends – a strange race of people who live above the clouds – Liam continues his search for the source of everything, which he believes will be found in the Garden of Origin. However, Sah, the power-hungry ruler who hunts Liam, searches for the garden, too. The race is on to see who will get there first and if Liam can survive long enough to fulfil his goal.

On the run, with traitors in their midst and death-breathing dragons on their tail, it’s anybody’s guess if good will prevail or if the amnesiac Devil who possesses Liam’s friend, Joshua, will gain the upper hand. Will Liam find the Creator he seeks? Will the Ilanenorians’ Earth Magic and the winged ryokin’s aid be enough? Will Liam be enough?”

Genre(s): Science Fiction, Steampunk, Adventure, Young Adult

Description: “Can a sheltered Victorian girl with an extraordinary gift with machines make her way to safety without losing her freedom and endangering all around her?

Samantha Crill can read the hearts of mechanical devices and transform them into what they long to be. In a steam-powered Victorian England where only the wealthy can afford such sophisticated contraptions, the law does not look kindly on Naturals who destroy these purchases. Barely able to resist the demand of the devices, Sam becomes a danger to everyone around her, not in the least because the mechanicals show little restraint once changed.

Nathaniel Bowden, cabin boy on the oldest of the East India Trading Company’s steamships, intends to learn everything he can in the hope of becoming a captain in this age of productivity. He’s eager and willing, but his despised noble background and the engineer’s unprovoked loathing threaten his position with the crew.”

Know Your VA Benefits

One of the very first authors I met when I first started this indie venture has brought an important issue to my attention. Author Jessie Cox is a veteran and recently encountered a few issues with his local VA clinic. The staff there failed to inform him of all the benefits and services available to him. Luckily, Jessie was proactive and managed to find them himself, but he fears others out there are still left in the dark. Please, if you or someone you love is a veteran and needs help, check out these links:

• U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs 

http://www.benefits.va.gov/benefits/

• Explore ALL Veterans Benefits

http://www.va.gov/explore/

• For Dependents or Survivors

http://www.va.gov/opa/persona/dependent_survivor.asp

I know there must be more helpful links out there for veterans and their loved ones. If you know of any, please comment with a link below and I will gladly add them to this post.

Our soldiers have sacrificed so much for us – we owe them the world and beyond. Know your rights. Know that you have more than earned the right to proper health care. Our veterans should never be forgotten.

Thank you to every soldier everywhere and all of those who love and support them for your service and sacrifice.
