I Don’t Dare Look

I usually like to keep it clean here, but this morning I ran across an article in the news (Let’s be real, you and I both know I saw it on Facebook) about actor Josh Brolin posting nudes of Thanos from the movie Avengers: Endgame. I… I really don’t know what to think about this. I certainly didn’t look up the pictures. I know that is something I just would never be able to recover from. My innocent mind would be ruined forever! I would never be able to watch another Marvel Movie. I don’t need that kind of negativity in my life. I love my superhero movies. They are fun, action filled, and the good guy wins 90% of the time. I like those odds. You usually wont see me watching any Academy award winning movies, because you know those are going to make you cry or worse.. THINK! Ugh.. I go to the movies specifically not to think. Entertain me with awesome action scene, and leave my sensitive heart out of it. Sooo… are you guys going to look? I’m not…but …are you guys gonna???

Trail of the Chupacabra: An Avery Bartholomew Pendleton Misadventure (The Chupacabra Trilogy Book 2)
by Stephen Randel
4.6 Stars (18 Reviews)
Genre: Humor & Entertainment | Foreign Languages | Nonfiction

FREE for a limited time

Avery Bartholomew Pendleton is back, and he’s just as crazy as ever. Avery is a paranoid loner obsessed with global conspiracy theories who spends most of his time crafting absurd and threatening letters to anyone who offends him. That means pretty much everyone.

Still convinced of the existence of the mythical Mexican chupacabra*, Avery enlists the assistance of the Southwest Texas Revolutionary Armed Confederate Border Operations Militia (STRAC-BOM) and their manic leader, General X-Ray, to help him invade Mexico. Accompanied by Ziggy, a burned-out hippy, and an uncommonly large iguana named Nancy, the group follows the advice of a New Orleans voodoo priestess and heads straight into the Mexican desert.

Unfortunately for the motley gang of explorers, Mexico can be a dangerous place if you cross the wrong people — specifically, the Padre, a vicious drug cartel boss, and El Barquero, a murderous gunrunner who has crossed Avery’s path before.

What unfolds is a laugh-out-loud dark comedy of insane humor, unforgettable characters, and chilling thrills.

*No chupacabras were injured in the writing of this book.

A ROMANTIC YOGA MYSTERY INFUSED BY NATURE

Morgan has become settled in her quiet life in Sutton, Massachusetts. Her peaceful morning yoga routine is assisted by her cat, Juliet. In the evening she guides her kayak across the placid surface of Lake Singletary. Everything is in its place.

When Morgan stumbles across a dead body in the shadowy depths of Sutton Woods, her stability is knocked askew. Jason, the ranger who comes to her aid, provides a steady rock of support. The death seems at first an accident, but Morgan knows in her heart that a delicate strut of life has fallen out of balance.

As Morgan and Jason delve into the mystery, still waters are stirred. Danger billows from the depths of Purgatory Chasm, from the twisted histories that stretch back decades. Can they unravel the tangled skeins before the past catches up with them?

Aspen Allegations is the first novel in the award-winning Sutton Massachusetts Mystery series. It is followed by Birch Blackguards.

All novels in the Sutton Massachusetts Mystery series are written in a boots-on-the-ground, chapter-a-day format. On November 1st, author Lisa Shea went to the Sutton woods, hiked through them, and then that evening she wrote up the actual sights and sounds of that visit. That was Chapter One. The same process held true for each subsequent day and location. By November 30th the book was laid out. Each book captures a moment in time; as a whole the series shows the progression of events, news, and nature in Sutton over the years.

Lisa has lived in Sutton for nearly two decades and strives to craft stories which transport readers to her beautiful town. She offers a glimpse into Sutton’s combination of centuries-old history and a modern, sliced-through-by-a-busy-highway existence. Lisa visits the actual locations mentioned in the story, experiences the atmosphere, and then infuses those rich colors, trilling bird-songs, and pungent fragrances into her story in a richly descriptive manner reminiscent of Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Then toss in an ample seasoning of local culinary delights, and this is the world of the Sutton Massachusetts Mystery Series!

The Lucky Cat – Black Cat Vol. 1 – A Salem Massachusetts Mini Mystery
by Lisa Shea
4.2 Stars (92 Reviews)
Genre: Literature & Fiction | African American

FREE for a limited time

Kathy Taylor had weathered eight rough years as a black female police officer in Boston – but enough was enough. She turned in her badge, moved up north, and set up shop as a private investigator in historic Salem, Massachusetts. Now she’s surrounded by Wiccans and herbalists, by crystal shops and psychic pizza-deliverymen.

And her first client has just stepped in the door.

The Lucky Cat is the starting point in the Salem Massachusetts Mini Mystery series. These short stories were written and loaded one a day from October 1 through October 31, 2014. You can read them one-by-one if you wish, or, if you prefer, you can read them as a complete boxed set. All author’s proceeds from this series benefit battered women’s shelters.

Lisa has lived in scenic Massachusetts since 1986, with only two brief forays out of state. One of Lisa’s ancestors was Ann Foster, who died during the Salem Witch Trials. Ann Foster was a grandmother by that time and sacrificed herself to protect her daughter and granddaughter. Ann had been born in England, came over in 1635, and was 75 by the time of the trials. Salem reached its dark depths during those trials from 1692-1693 – but since then has healed, blossomed, and now shines. Salem features the amazing Peabody Essex Museum, a plethora of gorgeous historic architecture, and a beautiful coastline. It’s well worth a visit.

If you can’t go in person, enjoy a virtual trip through Lisa’s first-hand descriptions!

Open & Ready For Business

The word around town is that the bee swarms are happening and a farmer nearby has already caught one. This sent a little bit of a panic through me, and I got to painting and setting up a few more bait boxes. We are expected to have a really warm week, so I feel like I need to get them out and ready as soon as possible. Maybe put a little neon vacancy sign on them. I am really hoping that all the bee attracting plants I had planted this season, and the sounds of the water will call to them. Last year I saw a swarm in the gutter down the street, so my garden should be a little more inviting. I did get the sign of approval when a humming bird stopped by and took a few sips from my fountain. I was so excited. VALIDATION!

Genre: Fantasy | Science Fiction & Fantasy

FREE for a limited time

Bound by duty. Marked by fate.

I’m Krystin Blackwood, and I’ve only ever been good at one thing: killing demons of Darkness.

But at twenty-four, I’m about to face my toughest challenge yet: shifting from working alone to joining a team of three other Hunters. Newbie Hunters. They don’t know their magik, they barely know their place in the world, and when they find out the secrets I’ve been carrying, they’ll definitely decide it’s safer if they don’t know me.

But unfortunately for them — and me — Darkness has other plans. Lady Azar, Darkness’s heir, stole my new team leader’s son two years ago. Now, she and her lackeys are rallying to exchange Ben’s son for me because of the power I wield. I’m one-half of a prophecy to save an ancient city the Powers of Good lost centuries ago. And if I fail or die before that happens, the destruction of that city will be felt across all planes of existence.

If we can’t find Ben’s son before All Hallows’ Eve and somehow save him without putting my life at risk, that existential explosion will absolutely happen. But it’ll be nothing compared to the destruction wrought if Lady Azar changes Ben’s son into a demon… and her minion.

Because the only thing more dangerous than me with a blade is a father’s wrath.

FREE for a limited time

Justice always comes.

Claire Vetra is looking for two men. The first man she’ll kill. The second man she’ll also kill — after she makes him watch as she destroys everything he’s built.

This is only the start of Claire’s revenge against the World Alliance Order, which held her hostage for a year and subjected her to live human testing in the name of medical science. But when Claire begins to unravel her past, she discovers that unlocking the memories of what happened to her might destroy the remaining shreds of her sanity.

“This story is filled with intrigue, suspense, violence. I loved it because it is so cleverly written. It is very dark but it is brilliant. Towards the end I was so tense and my heart was racing so fast, I wasn’t sure I’d make it through to the end of the story without a heart attack. It’s the kind of story that stays with you for a long time. I won’t soon forget it. Deliciously scary! Highly recommended.” –Pascale Armstrong, Goodreads
