Minute By Minute They Build

About a million years ago, maybe 15 or 20, I watched a Twilight Zone episode about the Minute Men. The premise was that every minute of our day is rebuilt by the Minute Men. Our homes, cars, food, clothes, all rebuilt new each and every minute. When one minute is over, everything is trashed and the humans unknowingly move into the next minute not knowing that everything is completely new. The only time you given a hint that there is a change is when little things are not quite right. For example,  you know for a fact that you left you keys on the table, but now they are in the kitchen. Little changes like that. Sometimes it was a mistake by the Minute Men, but sometimes they were being tricksters. I can’t remember too much about that episode. I think a human mis-stepped and landed in the Minute Men’s universe, and had to get back somehow. What’s funny to me is just how much that one little 30 minute episode has stuck with me. Anytime I feel something is off, like my keys are not where I left them, or I feel like someone is near, I feel like it’s the Minute Men. They are always just a minute or two ahead of me, but they are always there, building the minutes. Creeepy.

Welcome to Normal, Kentucky, where nothing is… NORMAL!

Mae West, owner of Happy Trails Campground, never thought she would become an actress like her namesake. Calling herself an actress might be far stretch as she plays a minor role in the local Civil War reenactment BATTLE AT CAMP WILDCAT.

When the reenactment doesn’t go as planned, not one but two of the town’s folks aren’t playing dead… they were MURDERED!
Come to find out there was a prison break and the serial killer is believed to be in Normal and someone has stolen a motorhome from Happy Trails Campground.

Are these connected?

Mae lets boyfriend and hunky detective, Hank Sharp, follow all the leads about the murders and on the trail of the serial killer because she’s got bigger s’mores in the fire.

The motorhome owners have filed a lawsuit and suing her for the deed to Happy Trails Campground. Mae has embraced Normal and there’s nothing or no one going to take her campground. She’s determined to find the motorhome and return it to the owners before she hands over any deed to anyone.

Mae just might find out that tapping into her namesake just might come in handy when coming face to face with a serial killer.

Rise to Power (The David Chronicles Book 1)
by Uvi Poznansky
3.8 Stars (114 Reviews)
Genre: Religion & Spirituality | Biographies & Memoirs

FREE for a limited time

Here is the story of David as you have never heard it before: from the king himself, telling the unofficial version, the one he never allowed his court scribes to recount. Rooted in ancient lore, his is a surprisingly modern memoir.

Notorious for his contradictions, David is seen by others as a gifted court entertainer, a successful captain in Saul’s army, a cunning fugitive, a traitor leading a gang of felons, and a ruthless raider of neighboring towns who leaves no witnesses behind. But how does he see himself, during this first phase of his life?

With his hands stained with blood, can he find an inner balance between conflicting drives: his ambition for the crown, his determination to survive the conflict with Saul, and his longing for purity, for a touch of the divine, as expressed so lyrically in his psalms?

If you like ancient historical fiction about court intrigue, this king David novel has a modern twist like no book you have read before.

Rosa Larkin is down on her luck in London, so when she inherits a near-derelict corner shop in a quaint Devon village, her first thought is to sell it for cash and sort out her life. But nothing is straightforward about this legacy. While the identity of her benefactor remains a mystery, he – or she – has left one important legal proviso: that the shop cannot be sold, only passed on to somebody who really deserves it.

Rosa makes up her mind to give it a go: to put everything she has into getting the shop up and running again in the small seaside community of Cockleberry Bay. But can she do it all on her own? And if not, who will help her succeed – and who among the following will work secretly to see her fail?

There is a handsome rugby player, a sexy plumber, a charlatan reporter and a selection of meddling locals. Add in a hit and run incident and the disappearance of a valuable engraved necklace – and what you get is a journey of self-discovery and unpredictable events.

With surprising and heartfelt results, Rosa, accompanied at all times by her little sausage dog Hot, will slowly unravel the shadowy secrets of the inheritance, and also bring her own, long-hidden heritage into the light.
