The gripping follow-up to Stonehill Downs

As the most valuable asset in the kingdom of Wilhaiim, Malachi Doyle has many responsibilities—protector, assassin, detective, and King Renault’s right-hand man. And until he met Avani in the cursed village of Stonehill Downs, he believed he was the last of his kind: a magus who can communicate with the dead.

But Wilhaiim is left vulnerable when Mal and his page, Liam, are kidnapped and ferried across the Long Sea to a warring kingdom in search of its own magus. To make matters worse, a springtime plague is rapidly spreading, and beneath the earth the sidhe are preparing for war. With Mal missing and presumed dead, Avani reluctantly takes his place as Wilhaiim’s magus. But her powers are unreliable and untested, her many allies are treacherous, and she is certain Mal is alive. Will she be able to keep Wilhaiim—and herself—safe?

The Red BookTitle: The Red Book
Author: Andrew Barbour
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Pages: 252
Genre: Science Fiction
Format: Ebook

This is the culmination of what began on October 6, 2013, at 8:12 a.m.

It was to be The Blue Book: The Ultimate Project.

In increasing clarity, these books show first the preparation and then the arrival in the first book—which, I freely admit, is not easy to read. But any change that I made, made it nearly impossible to continue until I reversed the change that I had made.

It was realised that things had to be effectively translated. This is what led to the creation of The Red Book. So using what I had learned and figured out, I applied the same technique to a digital camera, and the results speak for themselves.

Accepting the impossible or impossible to accept The Red Book; Project Complete is the second part of the Extra Terrestrial Disclosure Project, beginning with the hard to read and hard to grasp Blue Book; The Ultimate Project and an attempt to disclose the presence of other races along side humanity on this planet. What began initially as a translation of The Blue Book it soon became apparent the two books were connected in ways I could never of expected, but leading to the most basic understanding, The Blue Book set the stage and The Red Book introduces the players in a purely visual manner. Impossible, not in this life time, it will never happen, are you wearing a tin foil hat? and the implication that I was regarded as being to ignorant and uneducated for this to of happened to. All this and more from the people who all professed to have a desire to help and understand in these matters, and it struck me, how many more people have had an experience that left them feeling vilified,ridiculed and mouths forced shut by the pressure to conform?
The Red Book:Project Complete in part attempts to correct some of this by revealing that there is an Extra Terrestrial presence that is far beyond what we are told and forced to accept. Not to cause panic,or alarm, just to inform. We know there are creatures living at the bottom of the deepest oceans and in the darkest jungles that we know nothing about except for an image. Why? Because there was a photograph taken by an explorer who belived he could find it and take a photograph but all we know is what it looks like. Not knowing what it is, where it is from?, where it is going?, what does it want? will it accept a friend request on Facebook? Never finding the answers to these questions does not change the fact that the creature simply exists. The Red Book attempts to work on the same principle but takes it a stage further as a basic visual language, not in the ocean or jungle but in the skies.
The use of intuition is a useful ability when viewing The Red Book, to think outside the box and put the pieces together into a form that can be understood by the reader, falls to the reader, but I can open the door. I will state is that none of the obviously apparent and visible bird forms were physically seen. As well as some forms that I am glad I did not see physically. Just realising that the objects are there, then question where object appears to be, on the roof, on the ariel, in the sky or in the cloud cover, even to the point of what is it? and what shape is it? in some cases.
One easy leading question is this, if something that appears to have a bird form has just left distant cloud cover or a dark object can be seen in the distant cloud cover, far beyond the range of a camera for it to of been in any way a bird,and just how large would that object or bird form have to be to be photographed at such a distance. This is what the attempt to convay is in the first five images in The Red Book, page 1 just the cloud, page 2 the bird form, to continue the bird forms implied, which started at the end of The Blue Book; The Ultimate Project. Page 3 just the cloud, page 4 has the image of a creature that looks more like a yellow penguin with arms,not wings, page 5 the anomalous object in the cloud, as if to attempting to suggest something has travelled in a circular pattern to try and establish the concept that what is being seen is outside the realm of the known.In essence an attempt at a basic form of visual communication. As a further attempt to imply this, page 12, one hour 54 minutes after the first unknown apparent creature there is two more apparent creatures with one of them looking more like a giant fish than a bird and these were definitly not seen despite their apparent size and location. These and other images through out the Red Book attempt to keep the readers mind frame focused on the unknown, to think outside the box.
The timed sequences in The Red Book: Project Complete, which are 3 seconds apart, also appear to demonstrate that some of these have the ability to change their form and size in relation to need and proximity, pages 86 and 87 attempts to demonstrate this, what could be the same object going from an apparent bird form to something that appearing to be an shape that was unseen,attached to the side of the chimney like a form of limpet, this is not the only example of this, page 151 appears to be just a bird on the ariel but in 152 there appears to be something attached to the side of the ariel that looks nothing resembling the bird seen on the previous page. Within The Red Book there are hints that what is in the pages are not birds but bird forms, another example of this is the sequence for pages 199 and 200. Page 199 appears to just show what appears to be two birds but page 200 shows another apparent larger creature that appears to be following them, if these are birds why is the other apparent creature following them?
The size of some of these objects in the most part is impossible to judge but there are several attempts to demonstrate to this, one in particular is page 175 what could be seen as just an insect, but on closer scrutiny looks to give the impression like an insect, appearing to have similarities to the apparent creature on page 5, this appears to be in the gap in the cloud cover very high and very large. Another attempts at suggesting the size of some of the anomalous objects are on page 194, a large object that appears to be exiting the distant cloud cover and page 236 another insect type form just beneath the cloud cover. The final part on the apparent size and shape of some of these objects is exemplfied on page 249, a black object just in front of the tv ariel looking like a jigsaw piece with a dark red line across it,to an object that is apparently entering the cloud cover in a different form on page 250 in the final image and drawing to a close to the Red Book; Project Complete.
To borrow a well used blanket phrase used by individuals who profess to be involved in contact and investigation in these matters,’ When you are dealing with these beings, you just know’. I found that this is the case, but in the pages of the Red Book; Project Complete is the oppertunity for the reader to discover this for themselves.

An Intriguing Proposition

Passion. Seduction. Pleasure. These are the qualities of any courtesan worth her salt. As owner of The Starling Club, London’s most notorious house of ill-repute, Madame Philomena McGrattan has seen it all, heard it all, done it all. There is little that surprises her anymore, and even less that excites her. So when she is presented a chance at an irresistible seduction, she can’t help but rise to the challenge.

A Dangerous Game

Studiousness. Practicality. Discipline. Such are the attributes of a good scholar, and such are the principles Lord Spencer Hornsby has built his life around. Alone in the Welsh countryside, with only his wolfhounds for company, Spencer has thrown himself into his work. There is little time for the pleasures of society, not even to think of the joys of the fairer sex. But when an unexpected guest arrives at his isolated hunting lodge, Spencer cannot help but be baffled by the presence of this dangerously beautiful woman. And when he discovers the reason for her arrival, and the pleasures she promises, he cannot help but find himself irresistibly intrigued . . .

Sarah Hegger

Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble. Mimicking her globe trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother. She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.

Dancing is part of being human. Our earliest ancestors moved their bodies to the accompaniment of rhythms and chants. This urge to move, together with sounds or music, is part of our human nature.

The online videos visually show how to perform the moves. The written choreography for each dance is presented in Dancing for Fun to match the dance exactly with the music. In this guide, the Greathouses offer the opportunity to learn to dance as easily as possible and have fun at the same time.

“The titles of these books say it all: Fun! The piano melodies and dances in these
books can be done with a wide variety of skill levels and group sizes.”
Michael Mecham, American Dance Magazine

The Sparrow Sisters by Ellen Herrick Book Feature



Title: The Sparrow Sisters
Author: Ellen Herrick
Publisher: William Morrow
Pages: 384
Genre: Magical Realism/Fantasy
Format: Kindle/Paperback

With echoes of the alchemy of Practical Magic, the lushness of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, and the darkly joyful wickedness of the Witches of East End, Ellen Herrick’s debut novel spins an enchanting love story about a place where magic whispers just beneath the surface and almost anything is possible, if you aren’t afraid to listen.

The Sparrow Sisters are as tightly woven into the seaside New England town of Granite Point as the wild sweet peas that climb the stone walls along the harbor. Sorrel, Nettie and Patience are as colorful as the beach plums on the dunes and as mysterious as the fog that rolls into town at dusk.

Patience is the town healer and when a new doctor settles into Granite Point he brings with him a mystery so compelling that Patience is drawn to love him, even as she struggles to mend him. But when Patience Sparrow’s herbs and tinctures are believed to be implicated in a local tragedy, Granite Point is consumed by a long-buried fear—and its three hundred year old history resurfaces as a modern day witch-hunt threatens. The plants and flowers, fruit trees and high hedges begin to wither and die, and the entire town begins to fail; fishermen return to the harbor empty-handed, and blight descends on the old elms that line the lanes.

It seems as if Patience and her town are lost until the women of Granite Point band together to save the Sparrow. As they gather, drawing strength from each other, will they be able to turn the tide and return life to Granite Point?
The Sparrow Sisters is a beautiful, haunting, and thoroughly mesmerizing novel that will capture your imagination.

A year earlier, a Folsom gold mine operator had been murdered in a home break-in robbery attempt and five months after the Chester murders, the quiet Southern California city of Burbank is rocked when, during another home break-in, an elderly widow is found bound, gagged and brutally murdered in her own home.

Thus begins the terrifying chronicle of the Mountain Murder Mob’s deadly rampage up, down and through the Golden State—from the gritty back alleyways of the Los Angeles suburbs to the forested foothills of the Northern Sierras—a gang of ruthless killers ply their murderous trade by preying on society’s most vulnerable citizens.

And behind the scenes, the victims’ young wife and mother copes with the grief of a life turned upside down after her heartbreaking loss. Struggling to build a new life for herself and for what now remains of her devastated family, she leans on her unwavering faith and a deep reservoir of inner strength.

A Massacre of Innocents is the previously untold true story of the Mountain Murder Mob’s horrific crimes and how they ultimately paid for those crimes.

This book was originally self-published by the author in 2004 in order to provide a copy of his memoirs to The Mighty Eighth Air Force Heritage Museum, Savannah, Georgia and commemorate sixty years since his WWII combat experience. His Tru Love Crew (also known as Gasser’s Crew) first got back together in 1989 where forty-five years later they naturally reminisced about the closeness of their time together as a tight nit group going into battle. This meeting inspired some to begin writing down their combat memories as well as their accomplishments after leaving the Air Force. As a result, his WWII memories plus some intervening lifetime memories that he was able to accomplish due to that short period of service in the US AAF is recorded in this book Kenneth Cleveland Drinnon a native of Hancock County, Tennessee was born in Lee County, Virginia November 30, 1924 to Glenn B. and Willie Mae Overton Drinnon.
