A collection of short stories from Iceland – a land of mystery and ancient legends. The stories in these pages were first told hundreds of years ago by the Vikings as they sat around the fires.

These are the legends of Iceland. An ogre named Gryla who terrorized villagers from the Faroe Islands to Iceland. The Guardians of Iceland are four powerful creatures who have never been defeated: a dragon, an eagle, a bull, and a giant. The Lagarfljótsormur is a mysterious dragon-like creature known as the Monster Worm that has lived in Lake Lagarfljót for centuries. The Hidden Folk live only in Iceland and are very powerful creatures that protect the land and punish those who harm it. Trolls of every shape and size roam the land. The stories of these and other legendary creature in Iceland are here for you to explore – if you are Viking enough.

Barbra Streisand (On the Couch)Barbra Streisand (On the Couch)
By Alma H. Bond, Ph.D.
Publisher: Bancroft Press
Release Date: October 2017
ISBN: 978-1610882118
Pages: 320
Genre: Fiction, Biographical Fiction
Formats Available For Review: Print (ARC)

We all know Barbra, the star, but how well do we know Barbra, the woman? In the latest installment of my On the Couch series, Dr. Darcy Dale, a renowned, pioneering Manhattan psychiatrist, is confronted by Barbra, who is dismayed after thirty years of minimally successful therapy. Over the course of a year, Dr. Dale conducts an intimate psychoanalysis, breaking through Barbra’s defense mechanisms and repressions to delve deep into the heart and mind of one of America’s last remaining superstars. Published at the same time as Streisand’s own, long awaited memoir, Barbra Streisand: On the Couch is an essential companion, a sensitive, objective, pitch-perfect opportunity to look behind the voice and image, and to understand and fully appreciate Barbra Streisand, the human being.

Epic Fantasy, Sci-fi Thriller – Black Mirrors of the Soul

Black Mirrors of the SoulBlack Mirrors of the Soul
By Charles W. McDonald Jr.
Publisher: A Throne of Souls
Published: April 2017
ASIN: B06Y5YT2C4
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Fantasy, SciFi, Sci-Fi, Sci-Fi Thriller, Speculative Fiction, Paranormal, Magical Realism, Military Fiction, Military, War & Military, Crossover, Thriller, Cerebral Thriller, Fiction, High Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: epub, mobi, pdf

“We, the seeds of Humanity, are all the descendants of hardened criminals, fighting to survive the unmaking of A Throne of Souls.

Magic and technology have already met on a world far more advanced than our own only to dispense their most dangerous and hardened criminals, for magic has been outlawed.  Their descendants—us, here on Earth, along with the rest of Humanity—are now left to grapple with a Creation undone at the hands of an outlaw mage whose Master Plan affects the seeds of Humanity throughout the known Universe.  This outlaw—this Dark Knight of Magic—must accumulate immeasurable power to thwart the fork of consequences that brought forth the making of A Throne of Souls.  This story, this execution of his Master Plan originating centuries into the past, begins and ends with a triad of pivotal relationships and evolves through his understanding of his own soul.  Within the Master Plan, the dichotomy between hate and hope, across a landscape far beyond epic, is illustrated through vibrant characters developed over two-and-a-half decades.

While Black Mirrors of the Soul is the second installment in the series A Throne of Souls, it illustrates much of the beginning of the story, especially the back-story of The Cauldron of Hate that forged Damon. This is where you’ll read, see, and feel the fuel for the Fork of Consequences. This is the gut-wrenching, emotional journey that will have you screaming, crying, and cheering for more.  From the Monuments of Creation to the Seeds of Humanity to the making of A Throne of Souls, there are plot-lines and clues everywhere in this intricate mosaic for you to unravel.

I think my Proofreader summed it up best when she said, “I’m still trying to pick up the pieces of my emotions you just scattered all over the room.”

A Note from the Author:  This thought-provoking, epic, and cerebral thriller breaks all the rules crossing over Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Fiction, and Military-Fiction genres but as you start reading A Throne of Souls, it will become apparent why those rules had to be broken to tell this multi-world story of Humanity and Creation.  My goal in delivering this product to you was to be worthy of this inimitable story in the way that I tell it—to bring it to you in my voice, but to do so beautifully, elegantly, and intelligently.  There are several things that make this story unique including a flex-style narrative that changes with the scene and technology level available to those characters, a multi-perspective view within given scenes illustrating impactful moments upon a 360-degree axis, and a voice that is more consistent with real-world application.  Is it magical realism?  Sort of!  Is it complex?  Oh yeah!!  Think of it like a large mosaic with nuanced clues of information and disinformation that by themselves might appear to be something you recognize thought might not make sense, but when assembled with other clues provide shocking answers to questions you may never have considered.  It’s going to require a little effort for you to figure out what’s going on, but the plus side of that equation is that you’re in for a big surprise.

Now, if you’re used to stories that are your traditional ‘good’ vs ‘evil,’ single protagonist saves the world type of story, this isn’t that!  My protagonists are not always ‘good,’ and my antagonists are not always ‘bad.’  I believe characters should reflect the real-world, with real thoughts, emotions, and agendas.  I wanted to bring something entirely different to the market and this is about as different as literary fiction gets.  If it’s been a long time since you’ve read something that made you cry, scream, laugh, or cheer out loud, then A Throne of Souls was written for you.  Those are the kind of stories I like to read, and that’s why I wrote A Throne of Souls.  Please enjoy it with all my best hopes and wishes. – Charles W. McDonald Jr.”

Contemporary Fiction – Requiem in Stones

Requiem in StonesRequiem in Stones
By Richard Wile
Publisher: Maine Authors Publishing
Published: January 2017
ISBN: 978-1633810952
ASIN: B01N32YMG7
Genre: Fiction, Contemporary Fiction
Formats Available For Review: pdf, mobi, kindle

The death of his daughter Annie two days before Easter destroys everything that Tom Jacobs had ever believed about himself, his teaching career, his new wife, his stepson, and his god. Over the next eighteen Easter seasons, Tom must journey into the heart of his grief before he can emerge, resurrected by faith and love.

“Rick Wile pulls no punches in this urgent novel, taking his protagonist deep into the very marrow of a father’s grief. Tom Jacob’s sojourn becomes, through his encounter with the darkest corners of his complex and cavernous self, a pilgrimage toward peace and a soulful abiding that amounts to a restoration of his devastated faith. The reader who makes this pilgrimage with him may well be similarly restored.” —Richard Hoffman, author of Half the House and Love & Fury
