E very now and then one small soul rises from the crowded depths of obscurity and causes the earth to wobble on its axis. This last happened in 2008 when an unemployed doorman stepped onto the worldwide stage in Stockholm and accepted The Nobel Prize for Literature.
In this me-me twenty-first century, Thomas Soles may very well be the last American martyr. This self-described “simple man” writes a book that is so powerful it brings back to life the all-but-dead international labor movement. The response to his thoughts and perceptions are astounding. Around the globe, from pole to pole, America to Zimbabwe, the footsteps of marching workers begin to tremor the earth. But not everyone is pleased.
There’s a tight-knit, elitist clique that is absolutely livid over the thoughts and ideals that fill the pages of Tom’s book. And when he and his wife, Elaina, return home from Sweden, they realize just how dangerous this profit-hungry mob can be.
Mortified by the horrible scene that awaits them inside their apartment, the Soles have no choice but to flee their longtime home. Hoping to find peace and anonymity, they bounce all over America in an RV. But they don’t find what they’re looking for. Instead they become moving targets. And everywhere they go they’re followed by a succession of life-threatening events.
What follows are a few of the stunning comments readers have made about Tom Winton’s debut bestsellier, Beyond Nostalgia:
“It’s very difficult to write what is called a literary novel without coming across as wordy or plain rambling. I find Faulkner and Joyce and Lawrence, among others, all too fond of the sound of their own words and unable to “get on with it”. There is no merit in words for their own sake in a novel: the object is to tell a story and take the reader’s imagination and keep it. You’ve done that brilliantly. All the usual trite approvals with regard to voice, scene setting and dialogue apply, so I won’t insult you by adding to them.”
“I admire your writing skill, your wit, your way with descriptions, your ability to draw the reader from the end of a chapter into wanting to go on to the next as quickly as possible. I was overwhelmed by your description of what it’s like to try to get a book that you believe in looked at by an agent or publisher. You write about romance, and that includes sexual activity, in a way that is moving and never salacious, I think you understand women and you love your characters; why shouldn’t the reader fall for them too? All in all, Tom, it’s a very powerful, very well told piece of history. It entertains, it has a moral and it speaks to the spirit. What reader can ask for more?”
“I started to read BN and intended to read page to page, but
a lack of restraint had me jumping forward to find out where this story was
going and then jumping back. Winton squeezes a lot of emotions into each
section and uses a first person narrative that actually sounds like a young kid from New York. I thought of James Jones right away when reading BN.”
The Summer Girl
“This really is a lovely piece of writing, so many plus points I don’t know where to start. It’s heartfelt. It’s romance, not sex. It’s evocative. It’s addictive. It’s written from life? Didn’t all of us want to meet somebody like Theresa, and how many of us did?”
Michael Ashley Torrington, author, ‘Kristin.’
“What amazing reading! I have to admit that I am dumbfounded to read such a lovely, haunting and relational story from the hands of a man! There are a few men who can write in such a way–it is wonderful. Thank you for sharing this.”

S ean O’Brien couldn’t remember the last time he made a promise and then broke it. Many years ago his grandfather had taught him a “man’s word is his bond.”
It’s a personal code–a way O’Brien conducts his life. He has every intention of keeping the promise he makes to wife, Sherri, right before her death.
After Sherri dies, O’Brien leaves his career as a homicide investigator with the Miami PD and relocates to a remote section of Florida wilderness on the banks of the St. Johns River.
He’s restoring an old home and trying to rebuild his life when he discovers a young woman badly beaten and left for dead near the alligator-infested river. She whispers a cryptic message in O’Brien’s ear, and he makes a promise to her.
It’s an accord O’Brien believes the local police will fulfill. But when authorities drag their feet on the investigation, O’Brien finds the promise he made to his dead wife is about to conflict with the promise he made to the woman who was savagely attacked.
Soon O’Brien is plunging deep into the dark world of human trafficking and sexual slavery. O’Brien finds that an old case he never solved in Miami resurrects it’s head on the banks of an ancient river and tracks him.
O’Brien is tossed into a deadly cat-and-mouse game where the only vow he can make is to stop an evil antagonist with a twisted, Godlike complex that’s hellbent on sacrificing O’Brien to a greater cause.

“McCracken’s first novel offers a coherent structure, an exact feel for the Toronto locales, and, in Pat, a hugely attractive sleuth figure.” –Toronto Star
“With Safe Harbor, Rosemary McCracken proves why she’s already won international acclaim. This is an absorbing page-turner you won’t want to miss.” –Rick Mofina, bestselling author of The Burning Edge
“Rosemary McCracken has a deft touch for writing believable relationships, especially among families. These particular characters will soon feel like people you know and don’t want out of your life. Add to this an exciting plot and you’ll be ready for a great read.” –Maureen Jennings, author of the Detective William Murdoch mysteries
“The title of Rosemary McCracken’s debut novel, Safe Harbor, resonates on many levels. Safe Harbor, a house that offers refugees with questionable legal status a home, is a central player in the novel’s fast-paced and involving plot. But the words “safe harbor” also reflect the life financial advisor Pat Tierney has chosen to live after her husband Michael’s sudden death. In the opening pages of the novel, Pat is ripped from her safe harbor by a dark secret from her husband’s past. She is forced to meet challenges she could never imagine, but her courageous refusal to turn from danger makes her a very compelling protagonist. This novel will stay with you long after you’ve turned the final page.” –Gail Bowen, author of the Joanne Kilbourn mysteries
“Safe Harbor, by Rosemary McCracken, is a clever, original combination of domestic cozy and international intrigue. Its heroine, a respectable widow with a good home, a loving family and a lucrative job, suddenly finds herself responsible for a young boy with a mysterious past somehow connected to her own. Torn between saving him and saving her comfortable life, she risks all she has in a story that’s full of twists, turns, surprises and startling revelations. Touching, intriguing and sometimes downright scary, this story hooked me from page one until the final action-packed pages.” –Rosemary Aubert, author of the Ellis Portal mystery series
“This family drama quickly spirals into an intriguing mystery. A highly entertaining read!” –D.J. McIntosh, author of The Witch of Babylon

I n the first book of the January Cove contemporary romance series, Kyle Parker has just started his real estate investment business and is doing well. Unattached and not interested in falling in love, he dives head first into his business in the small coastal Georgia town.
Jenna Davis’s life has come to a screeching halt. After making the worst decision on her life during college, she now finds herself a single mother about to lose her home over a decade later.
When these two cross paths after many years, sparks fly and Kyle puts up a brick wall to protect himself. In this sweeping romance, emotions run high as the two try to find themselves, and each other, again. If you love a modern contemporary romance, this is it!
Here’s a sample:
“Kyle? Are you still with me?” Jenna asked looking at him.
“What? Oh, yeah. I was just thinking about something.” Kyle didn’t know how to feel. Should he kick her to the curb and laugh all the way home at the thought of her being homeless and sad? Should he scoop her up in his arms like he wanted to do? Of course not. That part of his life was long over, and he wasn’t signing up for more hurt from Jenna.
“Thinking that you told me so?” she asked looking down at her lap. She’d changed so much over the years, but some things hadn’t changed at all. The way her hair smelled, even from a few feet away. The way she looked down nervously when she thought someone was angry with her. He’d seen her do it with her parents many times. Even the way her voice lilted in that sweet Southern way that drew him to her in the first place.
“No. Of course not,” he said, lying through his teeth.
“It’s okay, Kyle. You have the right to gloat.”
“Fine. You want me to gloat?” he said standing up, finally unable to hold back his words. “You left me standing there like I didn’t even matter, Jenna. Like our five years together meant nothing to you. So, yes, there is a part of me that feels pretty vindicated in all of this. He might have money now, but you didn’t get the benefit of that, did you?”
“I’m so sorry, Kyle. I should have handled it all better. I know that. I knew it the moment I drove away and saw your face in the rear view mirror. You didn’t deserve that, and maybe that’s why I’m being punished now.”
