Erotic Urban Fantasy – Incubus Moon

Incubus Moon
Author: Andrew Cheney-Feid
Publisher:CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1463674069
Published: December 2011
Pages: 336

What if the darkness could whisper your name? Touch you?

And what if that same darkness…was calling you home?

Austin Iverson experiences this firsthand on the eve of his thirtieth birthday, when a sinister entity manifests to reveal the startling truth of his birth. He is not human. He is Incubus! A species of carnal demon hunted and slaughtered to extinction by the Shadow Walkers over a millennia ago, or so the supernatural community believes. But inheriting incubus power comes at a steep price. His awakening sets in motion a catastrophic chain of events that will not only threaten his own life, but jeopardize the lives of everyone he holds dear, because it unleashes an immortal enemy consumed by an unquenchable thirst for his blood; a creature so merciless it will stop at nothing until it fully possesses Austin–for the ritual sacrifice of an incubus is the key that will grant this ancient evil dominion over Mankind.

INCUBUS MOON is the antidote to the predictable urban fantasy yarn, turning the genre on its ass-kicking head by daring to break the rules and offer readers a new hero to root for; one whose lust for adventure and wry sense of humor is bested only by an uncanny knack for landing at the heart of danger.

Advisory: This novel is highly erotic and targeted at adult audiences uninhibited by hetero- and homoerotic themes.

Medical – Healthy Prostate

Healthy Prostate: The Extensive Guide To Prevent and Heal Prostate Problems Including Prostate Cancer, BPH Enlarged Prostate and Prostatitis
Author: Ronald Bazar
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1466369252
Pages: 322
Published: October 2011

“Healthy Prostate” explains how to cure prostate problems naturally, without the devastating side effects of conventional medical treatments. Prostate cancer, prostatitis, and BPH enlarged prostate are names for prostate diseases. It begs the question: What causes an unhealthy prostate?

The problem with conventional prostate treatments is that they attack the symptoms of the disease, downplay the side effects of treatment, and do nothing to eradicate the underlying causes. Doesn’t it make more sense to treat the causes?

The author, Ronald Bazar wants readers to use their prostate condition as a wake-up call to get healthy! Chronic prostate problems can be reversed by changing one’s lifestyle.

Conventional medicine concentrates on the symptoms and treats them aggressively, which weakens the body. There are consequences to overpowering the body. Do not believe doctors who downplay the side effects of slicing and dicing, radiating, or poisoning the body—there is another way. Prostate problems can be healed without the dire side effects of incontinence and impotence. Better still, prostate disease can be prevented from happening in the first place!

Ron Bazar, a Harvard MBA and serial entrepreneur, experienced a sudden complete urinary retention (a painful inability to urinate). At age 55, Ron was diagnosed with BPH, an enlarged prostate. He was scheduled twice for emergency surgery but both times declined. Ron saw top practitioners of all kinds, diligently following their advice but failed to see any results. After over seven years of extensive research and experimentation, Ron finally discovered how to heal his prostate naturally.

In Healthy Prostate, Ron shares his insights and unique perspective to assist in empowering people to succeed and heal themselves—no matter what kind of prostate problem they face.

“If modern treatments had no serious side effects, I would have lined up to get them. Unfortunately they do, in as many as 70% of men who undergo conventional treatments. Men just don’t want to discuss problems of impotence or incontinence with anyone, especially when it is too late to do anything about them,” Bazar says.

Psychological Fiction – The Dancing Masters

The Dancing Masters
Author: Bill Toole
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1-4611-1864-0
Pages: 452
Published: December 2011

THE DANCING MASTERS describes the odyssey of Gene “Tiger” Bishop, a Korean war veteran haunted by the army’s cover-up of an ambiguous battlefield situation that led to the death of his best friend. He has been honorably discharged because he gave up his attempt to bring the truth out. He returns to the small South Carolina college he left two years previously because he was running away from a responsibility to a mill girl in the town who loved him. He finds that the girl has disappeared and gradually becomes aware as he emerges from the trauma of his experiences in Korea that what he has done to her is more reprehensible than what he did not do for his buddy. In the process of his attempt to find her, he discovers a secret from a deeper past that involves her–a secret that threatens the image of the town and the college. Though the truth about what happened to her and the sins of the past are covered up through the interactions of some of the people he encounters in his search, he does find her and the truth about himself in his journey toward moral insight and self-knowledge against a background of institutional and social hypocrisy.

The story is developed through several intertwining plot lines that unfold through the actions of multidimensional characters from various walks of life who are presented realistically in the light of their time and place. There are sensational elements in the plot–rape, adultery, pedophilia, madness, murder, suicide–as well as issues of gender and race. And there are a number of amusing segments in it, ranging from the satirical to the parodic and the broadly comic. But THE DANCING MASTERS is essentially a psychological novel, suggesting the various ways rationalization serves the needs of convention, image, and conscience as well as the capacity of the human spirit to overcome its inclination toward moral inertia and the duplicity that encourages it. These themes are reflected in the interactions of the characters who determine the course of the story.

The title is adapted from a line in Dostoyevsky’s THE IDIOT: “…grace and beauty come from the heart, not the dancing master.”

Travel Memoir – Safari Jema

Safari Jema
Author: Teresa O’Kane
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1463741792
Pages: 294
Published: January 2012

INDIE BOOK AWARD WINNER FOR BEST MEMOIR OF 2012

Teresa O’Kane had always longed to see the world. She owned scads of travel books and maps to prove it and was about to buy yet another bookcase to hold the many Lonely Planet guides and travel essays that she and her husband had accumulated over the years when she turned to her husband and said, “I’m tired of storing our dreams. Let’s live them!” Within a month, they bought one-way tickets to Morocco, leased out their home, and set out on a journey of the African Continent top to bottom, from Casablanca to Cape Town. Transiting seventeen countries in 10 months, mostly by public transport, they explored wild, exotic, and historic locations they had only dreamed of and some they had never heard of. From sandy Timbuktu, to a tiny lemur populated island in Madagascar, the author embraces Africa. She strokes the manes of lions, contracts malaria, flies a micro light over Victoria Falls, earns a level one certification as a South African safari guide, discovers that an insect has turned her foot into a nursery for hundreds of eggs, grapples with the negative effects of foreign aid, and rubs elbows with European royalty deep within the Dogon in Mali. O’Kane offers an entertaining and enlightening look into overland travel on the African continent. Filled with helpful budget minded travel tips, this inspiring book may find you yearning to take a career break of your own.
