Meeting of the Mustangs by Cathy Kennedy




For hundreds of years, generations of wild mustangs have roamed large parts of the western United States. Many of these magnificent animals can live their entire lives without ever seeing a single human being. Being completely self-sufficient, they inhabit the wilderness in groups, living together peacefully and posing no threat to any of the other animals with which they share the land.

Through knowledge that has been passed down to them from their ancestors, these horses are masters of survival and know what things to fear and how to protect themselves from those dangers.

This is the story of a special horse. His life begins much the same as the other young horses in his group, but will turn out to be much different. Through no fault of his own, he is separated from everything he has come to know and thrown into an entirely different way of life. Although his world changes drastically, his adventures continue until he finds himself in the unexpected position to repay a kindness that was once shown to him.

Friendship can sometimes be found in the least likely forms, in the most difficult times.

About the Author



Cathy Kennedy spent the first years of her life growing up in Pennsylvania before moving to South Florida at age 17. Her book, Meeting of the Mustangs, was started during her teenage years in Pennsylvania and would not be completed until many years later.

The story of the wild mustangs is somewhat reflective of her life living in the country, where her family owned horses. She wanted to complete the book for younger readers who have a love for animals, and finally convinced herself that she should continue the story where she'd stopped writing many years before.

She currently lives in Ohio with her husband and three rescued tuxedo cats.

#BabyLove


In Corine Dehghanpisheh’s latest picture book #BabyLove: My Toddler Life, a curious toddler loves to play… especially with his mommy’s smartphone!

When Mommy finds him using her phone without permission, it’s the perfect teaching moment.  Mommy reminds her little one that what matters most in life is time together filled with love and attention.

Her simple reminder:  Put down our phones.






#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is the second book in Corine’s #BabyLove Book Series.  The

first book in the series, #BabyLove: My Social Life, won the Next Generation Indie Book

Award for Picture Books 0-5.

In #BabyLove: My Toddler Life, a curious toddler loves to play… especially with his

mommy’s smartphone!

When Mommy finds him using her phone without permission, it’s the perfect teaching

moment.  Mommy reminds her little one that what matters most in life is time together

filled with love and attention.

Her simple reminder:  Put down our phones.

Praise:

“This light-hearted reflection on social media habits is a great tool for starting discussions

with young children.” – 5 Stars, Foreword Reviews



“#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is a fun and timely picture book for 21st century

preschoolers.” – BlueInk Review

“The lyrical way in which the story is told keeps the subject light while reminding the audience

(adults and children alike) the importance of play time over screen time.” – Eileen Caulfield

“With simple rhyming phrases and the author’s enticing illustrations, the volume should

surely appeal to young readers, who have almost certainly been told not to play with a

parent’s phone. But the book works on another level as well: the boy teaches his mother a

valuable lesson about mindfulness. After perusing the old photos, she tells her son: “These

moments with you, / I love and treasure.” This stirring story reminds busy parents that even

though those photos they take show how much they love their children, there’s joy and

wonder in leaving the technology behind. This poignant and entertaining tale about a playful

toddler aimed at young lap readers works on a much deeper level for parents.” - Kirkus

The Gladiator's Day of Grace by Jewel Adams

New Christian Short Story
I am so excited about The Gladiator's Day of Grace and consider it the most important work of fiction I have ever done.

About the Book
Maximus Vitruvius Messalla has learned about the unpredictability of life the hard way. Raised in aristocratic prominence and wealth, one moment Maximus is a decorated centurion in the Roman military, quickly rising in the ranks. The next, he is betrayed, charged with treason, and forced to be a gladiator in the Roman arena to earn his freedom.

Throughout the course of these events, Maximus comes to question all he has been taught to believe.

Lifted by his love for a freed slave, Maximus follows her to 
Capernaum where he learns of the gospel of Jesus Christ. After witnessing the healing of a fellow centurion’s servant, Maximus’s hunger for truth grows and his questions about the rabbi increase. He knows that if anyone can tell him more about the Messiah, the woman he loves can. On the shore of Galilee, she shares her testimony of the Messiah, and for Maximus, just being in her presence gives him a glimpse of heaven.

Over the course of a single day, he receives answers to questions that have haunted him for years. But when certain events come to light that reopen old wounds, he wonders if he will ever truly have peace.

The Gladiator’s Day of Grace is the story of love, forgiveness, redemption, and one man’s journey to discover the saving grace that is available to all of us.

OOTHANGBART by Rebecca Lloyd





Oothangbart - a Subversive Fable for Adults and Bears
Publisher: Pillar International Publishing
Author: Rebecca Lloyd
ISBN:  978-1-911303-02-2     Page Count: 200
Retail Price: £9     Pub. Date: Ist. October 2016
 
In the beautifully-isolated Oothangbart, order and organisation, hierarchy and custom, and the regular flying of kites ensure that each finely-mapped hour of each planned week are as predictable and reassuring as the last. One Donal Shaun Hercule Poseidon, a citizen of middling rank with no greatness in gait or demeanour, is not so reassured and is becoming less and less predictable. Love is partly to blame. Were it not for his love for the baker, Pearl Offering, his shed would not be filled with ossified bagels, nor would he be constantly fretting over the unsent love-letter that sat upon his mantelpiece. Nature had its role to play too. Were it not for the leaping fish that emerged unannounced and unexpected from the supposedly-barren river encircling Oothangbart, he might have wandered unnoticed for his entire existence and taken his philosophical questions with him to the grave. Government is definitely to blame. When the fish-panic seized Oothangbart, Donal was dragged into the machinery of government and thrust into an officialdom which had no place for a creature of thought. This is Donal’s story.




After walking for some time, he arrives at a vast pit he cannot circumnavigate and realises that a fellow cannot live outside society.  He returns to Oothangbart ready to face his punishment with dignity, but finds that he is welcomed as a hero. The whole of Oothangbart wants to know if he reached Bristol and what it’s like. Before he can decide whether he should tell them the truth, the crowd offers up its own versions, and the myth remains intact. Donal becomes Organiser of the Kite Festival, a job he loves, but nothing raises his spirits until Pearl becomes a friend of his waking as well as of his dreams.





Rebecca Lloyd writes short stories and the occasional novel. Her story collection Mercy, nominated for a World Fantasy Award, was published by Tartarus Press in 2014 alongside The View from Endless Street, a collection that came out with WiDo Publishing. A third collection, Whelp and Other Stories was a finalist in the Paul Bowles Short Fiction Award, and Bogieman, a story from that collection won the 2016 New Fictions Prize at Gatehouse Press. Her recent publications include Ragman and Other Family Curses (Egaeus Press) and Jack Werrett, the Flood Man (Dunhams Manor Press). She is working on a new collection of gothic stories, and her novel, Oothangbart will be published in the autumn by Pillar International Publishing.

The Four Horsemen, by Cheree Alsop - GIVEAWAY




Book 3- The Four Horsemen
A plague spreads through Edge City. Certain the Four Horsemen are behind it, Aleric tracks the plague to a restaurant in the middle of the city. With the possibility of an apocalypse hanging by a thread, Aleric has to confront each of the Horsemen to end the threat to the city he loves. Still dealing with pain from the Archdemon’s wound, Aleric is pitted against gorgons, a vampiress, and limited time to find what Death is looking for and return the Four Horsemen to the fae world.


“People do crazy things in the name of love, Doc. Trust me. I know what I’m talking about.”
Aleric stared at him. “You were in love?”
Dartan put a pale hand over his heart. “Are you insinuating by your skeptical tone that because a vampire doesn’t have a fully functioning cardiovascular system the way werewolves do, that our hearts cannot bleed in agony at the mere thought of an unreturned gesture, that we cannot mourn the distance of an adored one’s feelings, that we cannot pine away after love lost or sob our lonesome selves to dreamless sleep when such love is found unrequited?”
“That’s a bit dramatic,” Aleric pointed out.
Dartan gave a heartfelt sigh. “You live but the span of a human’s years; can you not imagine the agony of a thousand such years spent in unreciprocated yearning, unanswered worship, and even unrequited total and helpless desire for the briefest lift of the lips that could hint at a smile?” He leaned back in the booth with another loud sigh. “Alas, the torment of a vampire’s heart is misunderstood at best and disregarded at worst.”
Aleric waited until the vampire stopped speaking to ask, “Are you being serious?”
Dartan sat back up. “I’m being dramatic. I thought you could tell the difference.”
Aleric raised a hand to catch Iris’ attention.
“What are you doing?” Dartan asked.
“I’m going to tell her to go ahead and stab you,” Aleric replied.
