**2014 READERS’ FAVORITE AWARD WINNER**
For assistant district attorney Ben Lovison life couldn’t be any sweeter. He has a job that he loves and a beautiful wife set to deliver their twin boys at any moment. For a man whose life got off to a rocky start following the brutal slaying of his mother in broad daylight in front of his childhood home, it was a testament to his perseverance surviving to and achieving success in adulthood. But when a young teen is fatally beaten in an abandoned schoolyard, Lovison is assigned a case that will pull the wool from over his world. He soon fears that his story of perseverance and overcoming may have actually been one of deceit and deception. And Mayo Fathers, the man he’d credited with saving him may have been a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Devastated by the discovery that Fathers may have been involved in both the murder of his mother and the disappearance of the father he never met, Lovison has to regroup and persevere once again. But this time, other lives hang in the balance.

DESCRIPTION:

Faced with possible torture for their religious beliefs, Henry and Mary Pattenden flee 17th century England, experience a perilous trip across the Atlantic only to arrive on the barbaric shores of colonial America where they endure further hardships in the primitive days of America with Indian massacres, illness, death, loneliness, love and greed to practice their Christian faith.

Coming from diverse cultural backgrounds and separated from Jamestown by the Chesapeake Bay, the settlers of ‘Ye Kingdom of Accawmacke’ utilized the distance to avoid laws and restrictions imputed on early colonists and created an almost utopia existence among the friendly Indians.

Actual court records dating back to the early1630′s provide historical fodder for the Pattendens’ personal story, and gives the reader an accurate yet fictionalized love story and view of what life may have been like in colonial America. Based on actual residents of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Ribbon of Love reveals a glimpse of America’s future before the Revolutionary war and what the nation will become. An added bonus is the Appendix where the author delineates historical fact from historical fiction within each chapter of the romantic novel.

Review: Ribbon of Love was…

DESCRIPTION:

The Garcías–Dr. Carlos (Papi), his wife Laura (Mami), and their four daughters, Carla, Sandra, Yolanda, and Sofía–belong to the uppermost echelon of Spanish Caribbean society, descended from the conquistadores. Their family compound adjoins the palacio of the dictator’s daughter. So when Dr. García’s part in a coup attempt is discovered, the family must flee.

They arrive in New York City in 1960 to a life far removed from their existence in the Dominican Republic. Papi has to find new patients in the Bronx. Mami, far from the compound and the family retainers, must find herself. Meanwhile, the girls try to lose themselves–by forgetting their Spanish, by straightening their hair and wearing fringed bell bottoms. For them, it is at once liberating and excruciating being caught between the old world and the new, trying to live up to their father’s version of honor while accommodating the expectations of their American boyfriends. Acclaimed writer Julia Alvarez’s brilliant and buoyant first novel sets the García girls free to tell their most intimate stories about how they came to be at home–and not at home–in America.

Available through September 20 at

DESCRIPTION:

The minor leagues are largely misunderstood, more well known for the players who have skipped through their ranks than the ones who reside in them. They’re a mysterious land of hotels, bus rides, and clubhouses. Upon being drafted out of UC Irvine by the Phillies, right-handed pitcher Eric Pettis didn’t quite know what he was getting himself into.

Just A Minor Perspective allows readers to jump into Eric’s mind and experience the journey along with him. The narrative resembles stream-of-consciousness as he describes the good, the bad, and the ugly of the minor leagues as it hits him square in the face for the first time.

From his first day in Philadelphia…

“I tried to open the door in a manner that would exude confidence in the off chance that my new teammate was an expert on body language and would be analyzing my entry.”

To the heat of the battle…

“As I hopped over the foul line I could feel my body try to rev itself up. It was pleading with me to get something going. It knew how significant this was… As hard as my body tried, it couldn’t muster…

DESCRIPTION:

Note from the Author: Christians are not immune to the world’s pressures, and sometimes we go to church without the Good News penetrating into our “real lives.” We get swayed by messages–overt and covert–about who we are and who we should be. We think that God does not speak to these concerns other than to say, “Do this” or “Don’t do that.” It is only when we look beneath the nice words spoken so eloquently from the pulpit that we realize God gave us the guidelines because they are so very practical. They keep us, if we let them, from stumbling into heartbreaking situations. The two stories in The Friendship Series aim to take the reader on a journey with Christians who in the beginning don’t seem to let their Christianity inform their encounters with the world to Christians who realize that God showed us His Way because it works–not just in theory but in real, actual, everyday life.

Preta’s Realm: The Haunting by J. Thorn – “Where the demons drag you deeper into the Realm.”

Zombie Book Blog Voodoo Plague Review – “This book is a page turner. It is full of action scenes, but still takes a pause every now and then to let us get to know and sympathize with John, Rachel and some of the other survivors.

Because of the skill with which Patton moves us through the beginning of the ZA and the attention to detail as well as the believability and likability of the characters (including Dog!), I’m giving Voodoo Plague FIVE out of FIVE zombie heads.” – Courtesy of ZombieBookBlog.com (full review at http://zombiebookblog.com/?p=51)

DESCRIPTION:

(Originally Titled Anomaly)

Relapse can be addictive

J doesn’t need rehab. He’s well clean of the hard stuff, the soft stuff, and the things in between that helped him bury his fear that he isn’t entirely comfortable in his own skin. Except that now he’s gone into the wrong bathroom again and a gang of thugs has decided to beat the freak out of him. Plus, he’s left to brood in his apartment while he convalesces, listening to the newborn next door wail through the walls at regular, insomnia-producing intervals. He’s not sure how much sobriety a man can take.

Then the wailing stops, and that silence grows even more deafening than the whispers of craving. In an uncharacteristic and almost irrational fear for the infant’s safety, J pulls himself from his bed to investigate only to discover a drug addiction more tormenting than his own, one that will threaten his sobriety, his identity, his fragile sense of self.

Then I said, “Okay, but what do I do with the body?”

That old family joke. Said hundreds of times by one or another of us. Just a flippant, smart-assed remark. A quick comeback. Clever. Witty. Off-handed. Predictable and therefore comfortable. Comforting. The signal of the end of a rant. “God, I could’ve just killed her.”

Or him, as the case may be.

Or him.

Then the comeback, perfectly timed. Two beats, and the other would say, “But what would you do with the body?”

Only this time, no one laughed.
