and Seek
McLaren Mysteries Book 12
Jo A. Hiestand
a mystery game seems the perfect way to celebrate Jamie Kydd’s
promotion to Detective Sergeant rank. But the game turns real when a
body turns up in the pretend crime scene. Perhaps worse than spoiling
the party, the corpse is someone Jamie knows.
though the police take on the case, Jamie asks his friend, former
police detective Michael McLaren, to also investigate—concerned
that the victim’s criminal past may dampen the Constabulary’s
usual fervor to nab his killer. It seems to have been a smart
decision, for the police aren’t expending a lot of energy on the
float around McLaren…half truthful, hard to find. More like wraiths
than flesh and blood. If the victim’s burglary partner, ex-wife, or
childhood friend didn’t kill Dan, who did? It’s a desperate game
between McLaren and a killer who’s playing Hide and Seek.

Girl Scouts and music filled Jo A. Hiestand’s childhood. She
discovered the magic of words and the worlds they create: mysteries,
English medieval history, the natural world. She explored the joys of
the outdoors through Girl Scout camping trips and summers as a
canoeing instructor and camp counselor. Brought up on classical, big
band and baroque music, she was groomed as a concert pianist until
forsaking the piano for the harpsichord. She also plays guitar and
has sung in a semi-professional folkgroup in the US and as a soloist
in England.
mixture formed the foundation for her writing. A true Anglophile, Jo
wanted to create a mystery series that featured a British police
detective who left the Force over an injustice and now investigates
cold cases on his own. The result is the McLaren Mysteries, featuring
ex-police detective Michael McLaren. Jo’s insistence for accuracy —
from police methods and location layout to the general feel of the
area — has driven her innumerable times to Derbyshire. These
explorations and conferences with police friends provide the detail
filling the books. She also writes the amateur sleuth Linn House
Mysteries under the pen name Jessie McAlan. In 1999 Jo returned to
Webster University to major in English. She graduated in 2001 with a
BA degree and departmental honors.
has employed her love of writing, board games and music in other ways
by co-inventing a mystery-solving game, P.I.R.A.T.E.S., which uses
maps, graphics, song lyrics, and other clues to lead the players to
the lost treasure. Jo founded the Greater St. Louis Chapter of
Sisters in Crime, serving as its first president. Besides her love of
mysteries and early music, she also enjoys photography, reading,
baking, and her backyard wildlife.Her cat, Tennyson, shares her St.

DragonMan is not
your typical Superman/Batman comic-style adventure.

adventures of Luke Starr, a superhero, yes, but he is so much more
than that.
These are all
stand-alone adventures, He and his sisters solve crimes and
mysteries. They run Starr investigations detective agency.
The audience for these books range from 7-16 years old, but can
still be enjoyed by people of all ages. 
The amazing story of
DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century, when the world,
about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four passenger
airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in Shanksville
Pennsylvania but into the American certainty that the horrors of the
outside world could not touch them at home.
It was into this world
that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for whom the lines between
good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is he foe? No one knows
for sure. What they do know, however, is that as a friend there is no
one better.

Poseidon Encounter
Series Book 2
Ted Lazaris’s first fantasy adventure novel, Dragonman, the
Adventures of Luke Starr, the reader was introduced to the likable
Luke and his seemingly normal way of life growing up in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. Luke was portrayed as a quiet, average kid plagued by all
the inherent problems of the typical American teen: dealing with a
crush on a girl he’s too shy to approach, pesky sisters constantly
poking their noses into his business, bullies at school and exams to
study for. But Luke, readers soon discovered, was burdened by a far
greater weight than any of his peers, as he struggled to come to
terms with his birthright as The Chosen One, savior of the distant
world of Spellville. Not only that but, like hapless Peter Parker
forced to juggle his complex life as Spider-Man while pursuing his
love interest and his not-always-easy career, Luke had to learn to
harness the enormous powers of Dragonman, his super alter-ego, a
persona that regrettably did not come with an instruction manual.

this second, action comic-like installment, Dragonman: The Poseidon
Encounter, Luke seems to have come to terms with his legacy and
appears well in control of his superpowers–which he will be called
upon to use this time around to save the world from an evil demon who
seeks to claim the souls of every human being on earth.
mood of impending danger is set from the very first page when author
Ted Lazaris takes off his gloves to delivering a knock-out of an
opening scene: Five-year-old Bobby Blakely, running downstairs on the
morning of his birthday, finds not the hoped-for brand new bicycle as
a gift, but rather an enormous blue whale that has somehow “washed
up” in the small lake on his parent’s isolated farm. While many
consider the whale’s appearance a hoax, others believe it to be a
sign of impending Biblical doom. And it is enough to rouse Luke’s
suspicions that worse is about to happen–which it does.

a pace that never flags, Poseidon Encounter unfolds in a complex
thread of differing tales, from an old-fashioned detective murder
mystery to a science fiction fantasy, all neatly stitched together by
an intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and
not-exactly-as-they-seem. An imaginative writer, Lazaris blends
magic, mysticism, religion, and the fast-paced action of the comic
book world into a book that fans of the first Dragonman tale will
find hard to put down.

superhero fiction is all about the power of love and faith to
overcome the evil that lurks in the darkness, whether we know it or
not. The superhero fantasy asks the questions we’ve all asked at
one point or another, was life really created the way the bible says?
Or could it be that mankind as we know it is the remnant of a past
civilization which once lived on another planet – or even deep
below the surface of our own? This adventure tackles these questions
with a good sense of unbiased investigation, and at the same time,
opens our eyes to the powerful issue of ‘What If?’
hopes and prays they will survive the night, retaining dominion over
their own world. While the other will wage war in ways mankind can
scarcely imagine, in a gruesome fight to end all life on Earth. The
bloody heroic war to determine mankind’s fate, battles between man
and beast, journeys to other worlds, the power of the mind over evil
forces, and the triumph of love.

I ran for my life. Vines slashed my face as my feet pounded the jungle path. My heart raced. I could barely breathe. With a quick glance over my shoulder, I saw it was closing in. The Tata Duende—the goblin of doom. There was no way I could escape.


“Bubba, you need to start at the beginning. Explain how you got there and what you were doing.”


Sorry for the interruption. That’s my big sister, Squirt. She’s always butting in. But she has a point. Would you like to know how I ended up in that terrible situation? Good, I’ll tell you.


It started with a shovel. A magic shovel. Grandpa Joe bought it at a garage sale. Squirt didn’t believe me when I said I’d dig a hole to China with it. But I showed her. I dug that hole. And after it swallowed us up, we found ourselves on the other side of the world, in Xian, China, surrounded by Terracotta Warriors. And guess what else? We met the ghost of the first emperor of China! He wouldn’t let us go home until we found his missing burial disk.


That was in June. A month ago. The hole is still there, covered with branches, under the sycamore tree in the woods behind our house. Squirt said she never wanted to go down there again, but that was before the dream.

Will it take a band of heartless bank robbers and a lecherous step-father to finally bring them together?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020




Barbara Goss lives in Western New York and to date has written 48 Christian and/or Sweet Romance books, mostly westerns. She enjoys crossword puzzles, penny slots, reading, swimming, and her two cats, but not necessarily in that order. She tries to write exciting stories with a bit of God’s word spread within, without dominating the story.
Barbara began writing in 1988 and her first book, Forbidden Legacy, won first prize for fiction at a Christian Writers Convention in Titusville, Florida in 1989. This won her a book contract with Publishers: Fleming Revell and later Baker Books. She wrote four books for them under contract. She then took a few years off to work full time as a secretary to the county hospital and the local school system.
Barbara’s greatest influence in writing is the 100 books written by Grace Livingston Hill. As a Christian writer, she weaves a bit of godliness into the romance and adventure yet her books are always clean. Barbara is well on her way to catching up to Ms. Livingston.


She is now turning her wonderful e-books into Audiobooks. Look for them on Amazon.

Beauty of love is that you can fall into it with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time.

Dr. Connor Beauregard Van Gates the IV, of Hays City, Kansas, and Elsie Crenshaw of Gobbler’s Knob, West Virginia, use a successful matchmaker to bring them together by using questionnaires to sort out their likes and dislikes. However, a CATastrophe occurs and things get very mixed up.

The couple has so many differences that Connor is caught rolling his eyes often. What has he done?

Will it take a band of heartless bank robbers and a lecherous step-father to finally bring them together?



The moon was bright that night and the sky clear, making it less scary for Elsie. She had to rescue Conner, but she didn’t know how to go about doing it.

She soon saw some movement. Someone had stepped out of the mine. Elsie couldn’t see his face, but she knew it was Conner. Another man stood at the mine entrance, watching Conner, who carried a bucket.

Elsie moved in the direction that Conner had gone as quietly as possible, grateful for the thick brush to hide her. She saw him stop at a well, and luckily, there were enough bushes for her to crawl closer to the well. Conner was pumping water. She knew he couldn’t leave because one of the men was watching him from about twenty feet away.

“Conner,” she whispered loudly.

Conner swung his head in her direction, still pumping water. “Elsie?” His voice came out in a whispered squeak of surprise. “What are you doing here?”

“I’m here to bring you home.”

Conner didn’t look at her, but he kept pumping water. “Go home and stay safe. I can handle things. I don’t want to have to worry about your safety, too.”

“How many men are in there?” Elsie asked.

“Two and the… um…patient.”

Elsie could see that the bucket was full, and Conner would need to return to the mine. Before he turned back, he whispered, “Go home!”

“Wait!” Elsie whispered back.

Conner purposely stumbled, spilling half of the water. He turned back to the well to pump more. “What?”

She took a gun from her holster and tossed it near his feet. “I have the other one.”

In the moonlight, Elsie saw Conner’s mouth drop open. They noticed his guard lighting a cigarette, so Conner bent to pick up the gun and stuck it in his boot.

As if that weren’t humiliating enough, Ellinor learns first hand that her magic can be stripped away by a piece of bio-tech

An Eerden Novel
Book 1
C.E. Clayton
New Adult Cyberpunk Fantasy 
Ellinor Rask has wanted
one thing for the past eight years: vengeance. But when Ellinor is
captured, she finds herself dragged back into the world she walked
away from, entangled once more with friends she would rather forget.
As if that weren’t
humiliating enough, Ellinor learns first hand that her magic can be
stripped away by a piece of bio-tech—and her ex-boss is happy to
leash her with the technology in order to get what he wants. If
Ellinor behaves, the device will be removed. All she has to do is
deliver a package. One containing a creature created from raw magical
energy and discarded technology. Simple, right?
But when her goals
start getting people murdered, Ellinor has to decide if the year’s
planning, her honor, and even her own magic, are worth the lives it’s
costing. Dodging ruthless gangsters, she finds herself on the run
with a creature of immeasurable magical abilities alongside her
one-time friends. Now, Ellinor must relearn to trust the people she
once abandoned. She must put her faith in technology, and her life in
the hands of independent contractors, all while racing to deliver the
package before it gets taken by force, or worse, the creature decides
to make an appearance itself.

Simply West of Heaven, cover reveal

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020
When Monique isn’t writing, you can find her playing taxi driver to one or more of her 12 children, plotting her next novel, scrapbooking, or being the “Mamarazzi” at any number of child-oriented events. 

Even though she realizes there will never be enough hours in any given day, Monique tries very hard to enjoy the journey that is her life. She shares it with a terrific husband, her dozen children, twelve grand-darlings, too many cats, and many real and imaginary friends. She is the author of several books in three series and hopes to write many more.

When her dad confiscates her deceased mom’s journals, 12-year-old Ginnie West counts on her BFF, Tillie, to help her get them back. But Tillie’s not so sure the ghost of Ginnie’s mom will make a good addition to their new family tree.
Then the girls’ world gets flipped upside-down when a blast from the past shows up and makes Tillie go nutburgers. Life gets complicated when Ginnie is forced to choose between helping her best friend and getting the answers she’s always dreamed of.
What reviewers are saying about this series:
*Like Anne of “Anne of Green Gables,” Ginnie is a character you can’t help but love.
*I couldn’t put these books down. I was not only entertained, but inspired.
* An excellent book that deals with the sensitive topics of bullying, abuse and forgiveness. It is action packed and full of raw emotions.
*Bucheger does an amazing job of writing this story but without giving a cookie cutter answer to the problems Ginnie faces.
And now for the New Cover
