Impact

 

A
Dick Thornby Thriller Book 1

 

by
Donald J. Bingle

 

Genre:
Spy Thriller, Action Adventure

 

 

Dick
Thornby is not Hollywood’s idea of a spy. He’s a new kind of spy for
a new kind of world.

 

In
his rough and tumble job there are no tailored Italian suits, no
bimbos eager to please, and no massive underground fortresses built
by evil overlords seeking world domination—just an endless series
of sinister threats to the safety and security of the billions of
mundane citizens of the planet. Sure, Dick’s tough and he knows a few
tricks to help him get out of a tight spot, even if his boss accuses
him of over-reliance on explosives. But he’s also got a mortgage, a
wife upset by his frequent absences on “business” trips,
and an increasingly alienated teen-age son who spends way too much
time playing in gaming worlds on the computer.

 

When
a mission to bust up an arms exchange in New Zealand goes
spectacularly bad, Dick is thrown into a maze of conflict involving
Hong Kong arms dealers, cyber-criminals, Chinese government goons,
and even militant Maoris. When a young computer expert back at the
Philadelphia headquarters for The Subsidiary, an international
espionage agency created in the aftermath of 9/11, discovers that the
bad guys are involved in a vast conspiracy. Dick is forced to partner
with the espionage neophyte to battle evil on multiple fronts,
leading to a final confrontation that incorporates real-world
conspiracy theories and cutting-edge technology.

 

In
the end, Dick can save his partner, save his marriage, save his son,
or save the world, but he can’t do it all.

 

Says
Spy Guys and Gals: “What a terrific ride … action, great
characters, interesting twists, and enough suspense to make you both
hold your breath and turn the page”

 

Says
Game Knight Reviews: “This is a spy novel that intersects with
the world of MMORPGs and combines a set of topics I haven’t seen
before. It is a bit of The DaVinci Code with some James Bond and a
modern virtual reality spin.”

 

Available
in trade paperback, ebook, and audiobook versions.

 

Want
to continue the action? Look for Wet Work, the next adventure in the
Dick Thornby Thriller series by Donald J. Bingle. Flash Drive, the
third book in the series, is coming soon. Want more action? Check out
the author’s other thrillers: Forced Conversion; GREENSWORD; and

A
Dick Thornby Thriller Book 2

 

 

Dick
Thornby is not Hollywood’s idea of a spy. He’s a new kind of spy for
a new kind of world.

 

Dick’s
not a supercool guy in a tuxedo or a crazed loner who does nothing
but kill and drive fast. He’s just a regular guy with some skills for
a job that needs doing. He also has a wife, a teenaged kid, a
mortgage, and all the mundane problems associated with life. His
friends from the New Jersey subdivision where he lives all think he
is a wastewater treatment consultant. But instead of dealing with the
dirty job of processing sewage in third world countries, he is really
on missions, some mundane and dirty, others of vital importance and
even dirtier.

 

After
taking personal revenge on the criminal behind both his son’s
injuries and the continued disintegration of his marriage, Dick
Thornby is teamed with Acacia (“Ace”) Zyreb, a young, female
agent from the East European office of the Subsidiary, to deal with
the mystery behind coordinated hacking of the braking systems of
several car models.

 

Doing
his best to maintain his vows to his wife, Dick struggles to deal
with the inexperience and provocative attitude of Ace on her first
non-European mission. Their somewhat combative investigation takes a
left turn by uncovering a much more sinister threat to the world and
to Dick’s family. He’s willing to risk his job, his partner, and his
life to eliminate the threat, but the clock is ticking.

 

Here’s
what Spy Guys and Gals had to say about Net Impact, the first book in
the Dick Thornby series: “I love spy novels. I devote my hobby
time to them. I write about them on my website. When I find a series
that I really enjoy, I am delighted and that word most definitely
applies to this series. It has action, great characters, interesting
twists, and enough suspense to make you both hold your breath and
turn the page (digitally in my case). I like Dick Thornby and I like
reading about him and I hope to continue to do so.”

A
Dick Thornby Thriller Book 3

 

 

Dick
Thornby is not Hollywood’s idea of a spy. He’s a new kind of spy for
a new kind of world.

 

Of
course, it’s complicated when you’re an international spy with a
wife, a kid, and a mortgage, but everyone thinks you’re really a
waste water treatment consultant. And, it’s bad when your family
finds out about your clandestine life, your wife wants to keep tabs
on where you are, and your kid tries to emulate your espionage
activities. But, it’s downright dangerous for your career, your
family, your colleagues, and your prospects of living until
retirement when the powers-that-be at the Subsidiary discover you
haven’t been keeping the secrets you should have.

 

Forced
to bring his family in tow on an off-the-books mission to investigate
a mysterious flash in the middle of the Australian Outback, Dick
Thornby has to contend with foreign agents, a sinister Japanese cult,
outlandish conspiracy theories, and futuristic weapons from the past
to save his family and himself while still completing his bizarre
quest for the truth about what happened out woop woop and why so many
people with weapons care.

 

“FLASH
DRIVE builds on the universe that Mr. Bingle began with NET IMPACT
and continued with WET WORK. This time, everyman spy Dick Thornby and
his family are on a mission to… wait, huh? What secret agent in his
right mind brings his family along on a dangerous espionage
assignment? Find out inside this grand entertainment that sports an
intriguing plot, well-written and thrilling action scenes, and a few
laughs, too!”–Raymond Benson, author of Hotel Destiny—a Ghost
Noir and The Black Stiletto Serial

 

“Dick
Thornby, Donald J. Bingle’s domestic family man and international
spy is back! And that’s a good thing if you want a danger-filled
and thrilling adventure (and who doesn’t?) mixed with family-love
and laced with Bingle’s signature wit. Do what needs to be done and
get Flash Drive. A good time will be had by all!” — Steven Paul
Leiva, Award-winning author of Blood is Pretty: The First Fixxer
Adventure.

 

“Donald
J. Bingle has, without a doubt, a sleek style of writing. Flash Drive
is not run-of-the mill, for sure. The new Dick Thornby spy thriller
sets a suspenseful, compelling espionage tale against a backdrop of
what we often assume to be an imperturbable Australia.”–Khaled
Talib, Author of Spiral

Santa teaches them that a Christmas miracle doesn’t always require heavenly intervention

Saturday, December 19th, 2020

 

The
Last Christmas

 

by
Seelie Kay

 

Genre:
Contemporary Holiday Romance Comedy

 

 

At
Christmas time, everyone deserves a miracle!

 

 

David
Wright is dying from cancer. He is not expected to see another
Christmas. At least that’s what the medical professionals say.
Fortunately, Santa begs to differ. After all, modern medicine is
nothing more than a best guess. Santa believes anything is possible
until you give up.

 

 

When
Santa tells David’s wife, Joan, that heaven is full and she has to
keep her husband alive, she is beside herself. She has no medical
skills. How can she save anyone’s life? Set your skepticism aside
as Santa embraces a family already mourning their father’s terminal
diagnosis and teaches them that a Christmas miracle doesn’t always
require heavenly intervention. Sometimes, all it takes is a family
with enough love to create their own. As Santa says, a true miracle
is when love combines with action to get the desired results. And
only humans are capable of that.

 

 

Will
Santa’s words fall on deaf ears? Or will Team Wright find a way to
save their father’s life?

It’s up to the magic of the season to bring this unlikely couple together with a little help from a pair of High Heels and Mistletoe

Saturday, December 5th, 2020

 

High
Heels and Mistletoe

 

by
C.A. King

 

Genre:
Holiday Romance, Comedy

 

 

Billionaire
Romance meets Sweet Christmas Love in this New Romantic Comedy
made just for the holidays.
 

 

Call
it an allergy or a family curse, either way it boiled down to the
same problem: Julietta Romero couldn’t go within six feet of
mistletoe.

 

Forty-eight
weeks, from January to the beginning of December, were spent filling
the position as a top executive at a prestigious marketing firm–a
five-year running record without a single incident. As long as she
continued taking all her vacation hours all at the same time, nothing
would change. Then, the worst scenario happened: with only a handful
of days left before her flight, she found herself working round the
clock on the firm’s biggest deal yet, and her boss wasn’t letting her
leave until it was signed, sealed, and delivered.

 

Luke
Winslow was in love with women, parties, and the holidays, and not
necessarily in that order. Taking over one of his father’s companies
didn’t fit into any of his plans, nor did a relationship that lasted
longer than a roll in the sheets. There wasn’t a single person who
had made him want to settle down and be serious, that was until she
fell into his arms… several times. Now, he’ll do anything possible
to stop her from escaping his charms, including holding off putting
his John Hancock on the business deal his father instructed him to
close.

 

It’s
up to the magic of the season to bring this unlikely couple together
with a little help from a pair of High Heels and Mistletoe.

not only contend with a new identity, but with the eye-opening
experience of living as a female: how to walk in high heels without
falling; how to put on a bra without dislocating a shoulder; how to
deal with makeup without poking out an eye; and how to get along in a
society which in many ways is still male-dominated.

 

 

When
Alan discovers that Hana has taken over his body, the two of them
must work together to find the scientist who can reverse the
experiment and give them back their respective lives. Along the way,
they must cope with living as each other and learn what it’s like to
be a member of the opposite sex. And as their adventure goes on, Alan
the woman must figure out his growing feelings for Hana the
man.

 

 

Alan
faces the biggest challenge of his life which Hana sums up with one
decisive question:

 

 

“Are
you man enough to be a woman?”

William
Quincy Belle is just a guy. Nobody famous; nobody rich; just some guy
who likes to periodically add his two cents worth with the hope,
accounting for inflation, that $0.02 is not over evaluating his
contribution. He claims that at the heart of the writing process is
some sort of (psychotic) urge to put it down on paper and likes to
recite the following, which so far he hasn’t been able to attribute
to anyone: “A writer is an egomaniac with low self-esteem.”
You will find Mr. Belle’s unbridled stream of consciousness floating
around in cyberspace.

Reality

Magic, Action…Illusional Reality has it all.’ Emily

Nobody
expects to stare death in the face only to find out your entire life
is a lie. Rescued by Salco, marketing executive Becky finds herself
in an unknown magical world filled with happy people that try to
forget their land is on the brink of destruction.

 

 

Becky
will soon learn that her arrival is no accident. If learning that she
is Thya, the heir of the enchanting land isn’t enough, she’s then
told that an Oracle prophesied that she will save the gentle Tsinians
from slavery and domination by Darthorn, the Warlord of Senx.

 

 

It
is at a festival where she is introduced to the Tsinian council and
her kinsmen, that she learns the whole truth. The council are so
certain that a union between Darthorn’s son, Kovon and Thya will
create peace between the two lands. However, Darthorn has plans for
Tsinia as does Kovon for Thya and neither are good.

 

Although
her future has been planned and if she is to save Tsinia she must
marry Kovon, Thya gives her heart to another. A love that is
forbidden and dangerous.

Terry Pratchett mixed with Douglas Adams, Wow

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

Jared, welcome to my blog. What makes you passionate about writing?

This is probably my most favorite question, which I am asked often. I could talk about how I didn’t read or write until I was rescued by an above average teacher, or I could mention that I have always had the ability to see whole worlds and universes made up in my mind. Really the source of my passion for writing is that I can share my most intimate thoughts and expose my feelings with the world for scrutiny. One day I will pass on, and my children, great grandchildren and so on will be able to open my book and I can share with them a piece of me. I can tell you that I am a champion of people sharing their stories, everyone on the planet has at least one story to share, and if not for the sake of those around them, for the sake of their future generations.
