Get it, read it! It's fan-freaking-tastic!

Posted by on in Authors

I confess, I abandoned this genre years ago finding it too formulaic to waste any more of my precious time. So, when I finished reading Centaur by HE Fairbanks, I simply had to write a review. This book is the best contemporary book I've read in years! Fairbanks has renewed my faith in the craft of storytelling with this brilliant, unexpected, novel. Admit it, haven't you grown tired of the formula followed by the best selling suspense authors?

Here's the gist:

  1. some event that introduces a mystery;
  2. some enemy says it can't or shouldn't be solved;
  3. some villan enters;
  4. some lengthy investigation;
  5. some meeting of the villain;
  6. some conflict and climax.

They all go exactly like that. Until the Centaur, that is. As a reader, you'll find yourself so entranced by the well-developed character, Number 23, that you will barely notice that you've breezed through the first ten chapters, startled to find yourself muttering, "No spoons!" Fairbanks introduces us to a seemingly unbelievable character in the horrific underworld of a sex slave ring and, with nothing but shear talent, makes it completely believable. Centaur takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster. It has it all--humor, suspense, action, cops, crime, FBI, betrayal, love, desire-- wrapped up by Fairbanks' wonderful ability to bring the characters to life. I'm thrilled to hear that we'll be seeing much more from the characters as this is only part one in a series of thrillers. The second book is called Willow's Baby and was just released this week. I guarantee that I'll be reading it! I'll be recommending this book to all my friends. Get it, read it! It's fan-freaking-tastic!


Note: Fairbanks had us do some minor reformatting to an existing eBook that she has having trouble submitting to a reseller. After paying a large sum to an eBook company, she ended up with an unusable document that the book retailers would not accept. So we fixed the errors and resubmitted it for her.

Compelling Story of Survival - Courage Born of Faith

Posted by on in Authors

One of the reasons we love doing what we do--converting manuscripts and publishing eBooks--is that we get to read some of the best books by new authors. This is one of those times. Courage Born of Faith by Edward Boersma is a radically comprehensive story of a Dutch family which survived the NAZI yoke during the occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. Hiding and feeding Jews was the right thing to do, but HARD, since survival was never guaranteed for the one offering aid or the Jew. The author, Edward Boersma, did a compelling job of telling about his family which lived through it all, survived, and like Job in the Old Testament, gained rich blessings.

The book is available as a paperback on Amazon and as an eBook on Smashwords.

The Place Beyond The Dust Bowl

Posted by on in Authors

The Place Beyond the Dust Bowl by Ron Hughart is a gripping account of life after the "Grapes of Wrath." It is the story of the plight of Hughart’s migrant family from the Dust Bowl of America, who fled to California and the West to start life anew. The book comes alive in this story of a boy’s struggle through life to manhood.

It is a "must have" for those who are interested in life in California after the great Dust Bowl migration. Schools should take note, as it is a wonderful tool for teaching the lifestyle of the migrant families from the Midwest. The first edition of The Place Beyond the Dust Bowl sold out in nine months. This book has become required reading in California schools. 

Our work with Ron: Initially we were asked to update an existing website for Ron Hughart. Then, we were asked to create an online store, and after its success we were asked to make the book available as an eBook for those who prefer to use an eReader. The book is available in all formats on his website at RonHughart.com.
