A Very Furry Christmas: Holiday Cat Tales
John D. Ottini
5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)
Genre: Short Stories | Holidays

Finalist in the 2016 Royal Palm Literary Award Competition. (Florida Writers Association)

This book contains four heartwarming Christmas stories about our feline friends and the humans who love them.

Slipper’s Last Breath: For most people Christmas is a time for reflection, a time to share and celebrate with family and friends, but for some it is a time of sadness and quiet desperation. What if your soul mate, best friend and lover is no longer around to share in the season of joy and you are about to lose the last remaining link to a life you once knew and loved. Would you find the strength to survive? Slipper’s Last Breath is a story about love, companionship and triumph over tragedy. Some might call it a Christmas miracle, but I call it the power of unconditional love.

The Unwrapped Gift: Sometimes the best gifts are the unexpected ones. After enduring the heartbreak of a bad marriage, Beth is in no mood to celebrate the Christmas season. It’s sad enough spending the holidays alone, but watching Spice, her five-year-old Labrador retriever, mope around the house was more than she could bear. A visit to Miller’s tree farm to cheer up her canine companion leads to an unexpected find and the possibility of a new found relationship. When she least expects it, Beth rediscovers love and the magic of Christmas.

A Charcoal Christmas: She was born under the loading dock behind Johnson’s Market and lost her mother when she was only five weeks old. One of a litter of six, she and her siblings had to learn to fend for themselves at a young age. The life expectancy of a feral cat is short, but thanks to the generosity of a compassionate store owner, the kittens were well fed and enjoying their lives. Then one day a stranger appears and takes her away from the safety of her kin. Confused and frightened, she is forced to endure an uncaring human and ultimately the forces of nature, in hopes of returning to the ones she loves. A Charcoal Christmas is a bittersweet tale of survival, hope and loving companionship.

Christmas Mourning A troubled priest struggling with doubts about his faith and vocation has an unexpected encounter with a stray, weather-beaten black cat. When Father Pedro decides to provide warmth and shelter for the lost creature, he has no idea how this simple act of kindness will impact his life forever.

Dear Reader: Please be aware that this is not a children’s book. The subject matter in the stories is for adults.

On Second Thought

I hate snow. It is everything I don’t like. Cold and wet. I really hate being cold and wet, so something that is cold and wet will be on my list of things to avoid. Oh wait… ice cream. Never mind.

A Chance Beginning: Book One of the Shadow’s Fire Trilogy
Christopher Patterson
4.7 Stars (46 Reviews)
Genre: Fantasy | Action & Adventure

FREE for a limited time

Erik Eleodum is a simple man. He doesn’t want to be a hero. He doesn’t need fame or fortune. He is content farming his family’s homestead in northern Háthgolthane and raising a simple family, like his father, for the rest of his life. In fact, adventure is the last thing on his mind. Befel, Erik’s brother, and Bryon, his cousin, can’t think of anything worse than farming for the rest of their lives. They want to be heroes. They want fame and fortune. They want to leave their families and go east, to the country of Golgolithul, where they are sure to find easy wealth and great adventure. But when these three young men leave their farmstead, they quickly discover the world is not so simple, not so easy. Most fortune is laden with treachery, fame must be earned with blood, and adventures are rarely grand. Ideas of grandeur are crushed and the road east is hard. To get there, these men must ultimately sell their swords and become friends with thieves, dwarves, soldiers, and mercenaries well past their prime. They battle a band of ruthless slavers, slip past assassins, and experience the deadly consequences of black magic. Will Erik ever be able to return to the simple life? Will he unwittingly become famous, become rich, become a hero? Or, will he even survive? Often the deeds of those deemed smaller, either in stature or status, go uncounted by chroniclers of history. Yet, it is these deeds that repeatedly change the course of history. For every hero whose feats minstrels sing, there were fifty men following his stead, giving blood and sweat just as he did; and because they were not the first to return from a long voyage away, or perhaps they did not return at all, their glories are never sung. This is a story about those men who would only be known in the local legends, who would have been forgotten by time save for a small bit of chance. Chance, Fate, Destiny, Dumb Luck; all these and more, and then maybe none of these things, are the reasons a young man can go from a farmer’s son, a boy of lowly birth born with dirt on his face, to a great warrior, a kingly knight, a dragon slayer. Three young farmers, tired of plowing endless fields from sunrise to sunset, gave up all they knew to pursue fame, pursue riches. Their crying mothers at their backs and the unknown ahead of them, they worked in pigsties, slept in the alleys of outskirt cities, traveled with strangers and shed blood unwillingly. They trusted men they should not have trusted, and did not trust those they should have. These young men who left their way of life for fame and glory would soon learn, as most young men full of grand ideas and just ideals do, the world is not what they thought it to be.

Rite to Justice: A murder mystery suspense thriller
A. D. Davies
3.0 Stars (4 Reviews)
Genre: Suspense | Mystery

A dead cult leader. A federal cover-up. A devout cop will uncover the truth. In the small town of Hope, Nevada, Detective Roland Recht is a deeply religious man trying to understand his place in the world. And his latest case, the murder of an isolated pastor, hits him harder than usual. Killed within the Congregation of Saul’s compound, the only witness is Lizzie, the Christian cult’s newest and youngest follower, and it seems clear that a former member must be responsible. But when Recht and his girlfriend suffer a personal and terrifying threat, it sends the investigation in a new direction, one that no one, not even his superiors or the FBI, wants him to pursue. Rite to Justice sees a good man forced to choose between his career as a cop, and following his moral compass, whatever the consequences.

Please note: This novel was originally published with the title “Never the Sinner” under the pen name “Tony Denn”. The plot is pretty much the same, but the content is really quite different. Rite to Justice is a murder mystery suspense thriller, far closer to the author’s original intent. Not so much a rewrite, more of a re-polish.
