I Poked A Bear Once

Despite the hot weather, I am feeling that Fall feeling in the air. Actually, I am mostly feeling like it’s Fall when I am inside the house with all of my Halloween decorations. As soon as I go outside I feel Summer. GO AWAY SUMMER!  You had your time. Don’t be so needy. I hate when seasons are so attention hungry they don’t know when to leave. SHOO! I just made some sauteed cinnamon apples. Not sure why, but I bet they will be tasty on vanilla ice cream. Fall will be in the air whether Summer likes it or not.

4.6 Stars (41 Reviews)
Genre: Science Fiction | Science Fiction & Fantasy

FREE for a limited time

An inquiry into the death of Specialist Granger Shelton has concluded and Skipper Allen Paul is officially cleared of culpability in the Spaceman’s death. He is also promoted to Commander and placed back in command of the Navy’s oldest, and in his opinion, finest space cruiser, the United Earth Ship, Dawn Rising. Now, as he wrestles with his grief over the loss of Granger Shelton, he is also troubled by a discovery made while escorting Granger’s body home to Texas. While transferring shuttles in Houston, Paul observes three caskets returning from the asteroid belt’s mining colonies. That ,in itself, is not unusual as working in the asteroid belt is inherently dangerous, but his curiosity peaks when he realizes the caskets contain no bodies!

Before he can investigate farther, the Navy sends him on a secret mission for the Planetary Defense Agency who tasks him with locating members of an alien species thought to be hiding in the asteroid belt. Never one to let sleeping dogs lie, Paul uses his mission as an excuse to open three of the mining company’s unoccupied caskets and discovers a direct link between the contents of the caskets and the alien species he is tasked with finding. A conspiracy is now afoot, and the search broadens as he teams up with a veteran Texas lawman, a Navy Seals team, and his protege, the newly minted Skipper of the Navy’s newest ship, Lieutenant Commander, Gail Ann Schmidt of the Crimson Moon. Together, they uncover a decades-old conspiracy whose fruition is at hand.

Genre: Literature & Fiction | Contemporary Fiction | Women’s Fiction

FREE for a limited time

After her ex runs up her credit card, clears her bank account, and gets her fired, Seanna Perry makes her escape to the quaint beach town of Seaside, Florida. The houses are pastel, the ocean air heaven, and the men hot as the Gulf Coast sun… one in particular. But while paying the price, literally, for the last man she trusted with her heart, she’s not interested in any sort of beach romance, or so she keeps reminding herself.

Living in the idyllic coastal paradise of the 30A area hasn’t eased Blake Evans’ guilt over what went down three years ago. He can’t stop blaming himself, and certainly none of his wonderful friends can ever find out what happened. Blake’s done a good job of keeping romantic feelings toward any women at bay, and he needs to keep it that way. But when Seanna begins to show him how to live again, he finds himself struggling to keep his guard up.

Seaside Sweets is book one in the Love Along Highway 30A series, which features beautiful beach communities, a circle of unique and amazing friends, and romances that will have you cheering on the couples and fanning yourself from the heat. All books are standalone and can be enjoyed in or out of order.

Spitfire Pilot: A Personal Account of the Battle of Britain
by Flight Lieutenant David Crook DFC
4.3 Stars (242 Reviews)
Genre: History

FREE for a limited time

“Spitfire Pilot” was written in 1940 in the heat of battle when the RAF stood alone against the might of Hitler’s Third Reich. It is a tremendous personal account of one of the fiercest and most idealised air conflicts – the Battle of Britain – seen through the eyes of a pilot of the famous 609 Squadron, which shot down over 100 planes in that epic contest.

David Moore Crook, DFC (1914 – 1944) was a British fighter pilot and flying ace of the Second World War.

After attending the University of Cambridge, he was mobilised as part of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force on the outbreak of war. Flying the Spitfire Crook participated in the Battle of Britain, flying with No. 609 Squadron RAF (at the time this was a squadron of the Auxiliary Air Force). He initially joined the squadron on 22 September 1938 as an acting pilot officer, this rank was confirmed on 4 May 1940, and later further back-dated to 9 December 1939. He destroyed a Junkers Ju 87 of Sturzkampfgeschwader 77 (StG 77) on 9 July, and a Jagdgeschwader 53 (JG 53) Messerschmitt Bf 109 on 13 August. On 15 August 1940, he mistakenly shot down a Blenheim fighter, although the crew was only slightly injured. Two Bf 109’s were claimed on 30 September 1940.

Flying Spitfire IX EN662 on 18 December 1944 on a high level photographic sortie, Crook was seen to dive into the sea near Aberdeen. He was officially listed as missing in action.

A Fool For Love & Money
by John D. Ottini
5.0 Stars (1 Review)
Genre: Suspense | Thrillers

Love and Money are two important ingredients in a man’s recipe for happiness. Unfortunately, those same two ingredients under the wrong circumstances can be a man’s recipe for disaster.

Unlucky at love, unemployed and drowning in debt, Thomas Murphy is a man in need of salvation.

When an unexpected gift arrives from an unknown source, Tom is confused, yet elated about his new-found fortune. His luck continues when he runs into an old flame he hasn’t seen in years and sparks begin to fly. Strange how a man’s fate can change when he least expects it – one moment he’s miserable and struggling to make ends meet, and the next he’s back on his feet and looking forward to a bright future… or so Tom thinks.

Then Tom’s rediscovered love reveals the shocking skeletons in her closet and he must decide to forgive and forget or turn his back and walk away. An innocent search on the internet turns up a problem that could stand between Tom’s good fortune and ultimately, him and the love of his life. If he chooses to stay, he must find a way to live with what he has to do to keep her in his life.

They say that love is blind and money is the root of evil, but sometimes you don’t realize the truth of those adages until it’s too late.

A Fool for Love & Money is a novel about love, desire, greed, murder and forgiveness.

INCLUDES BONUS STORIES: Things You Can’t Control and No Return Address

NOTE TO THE READER: The original story of ‘A Fool for Love & Money’ was published as a novella in 2014 under the title ‘A Fool and His Money’. Like many authors, every time I read the story over (and I read it many times), I recognized places where rewriting would make it better. After several years I decided to rewrite the story to its full potential. What you hold in your hand is the final result. I hope you enjoy the revised, expanded and enhanced storyline.

Rubber Bands Do Not Belong In Our House

It really is the little things that make me a happy bee mom. Yesterday I watched the swarm I caught last spring, clear out pieces of the rubber band that I had used to secure their comb on a frame when I separated it from the top of the cover. That means there is a lot of progress happening in the hive. I am hoping to do a hive inspection this week with my partner in crime, since it will be a hot week. It would most likely be the last time I go in before next spring. I am really hoping to end this season on a good note.

Inspired by Art: A Peek at Bathsheba (The David Chronicles Book 7)
by Uvi Poznansky
4.6 Stars (11 Reviews)
Genre: Arts & Photography

FREE for a limited time

Inspired by Art: A Peek at Bathsheba is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the most torrid love affair ever told: David’s forbidden love affair with Bathsheba and his attempt to cover it up.

These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscripts inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the second of which is A Peek at Bathsheba, where she imagines the love affair and the ensuing scandal. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a research course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story.

This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by the story moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow, as imagined by various artists. Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Chagall, Picasso, and Jan Steen to name but a few.
