Synopsis:  Do I even know my body?

That was the question Charleston Smid continuously asked himself after meeting Asa Altman. From the moment he stumbled into her presence, he knew she was his One. Every time he came near Asa he fell apart. Whether it was being tongue tied and muttering with a self-inflicted speech impediment or his legs finding ways to make him look like he had two left feet and backward kneecaps, Charleston was a discombobulated time bomb waiting to embarrass himself. He loved her and would tell her, that is if he could get his mind and body to cooperate.

Who knew adulting could be this hard?

Every time she thought she was getting a handle on her life, the wind shifted pulling her deeper into the abyss. She was drowning from her financial life to her personal life – hell even her body had gone on strike was taking the last ship to shore. Never in her wildest dreams would she have imagined a man like Charleston throwing her a lifeline, pulling her from the waters that threatened to drown her.

Blessed with a “do over” Charleston and Asa began to do what normal couples do. That is until a new threat appears. Something sinister was moving through the small sleepy town that Charleston and Asa had planned to call home and death was now at their doorstep.

Forced walk that thin line of sanity by visiting places he had left behind in his former military life, Charleston is determined to conquer his own fears.

Is it fate or something else just beyond reach setting these events in motion? Sometimes the best gifts come in the smallest packages. Find out what happens in The Gift You Gave.

Author:   Rusty Kontos

Format:   eBook

Publisher:  Urban Diamond Publishing

Buy:  https://www.amazon.com/Color-Angels-Rusty-Kontos-ebook/dp/B07GBH1CYL/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1535114020&sr=8-1&keywords=the+color+of+angels

Synopsis:

A point of view from the Jim Crow Era no one dared to speak on….until now.

The Color of Angels follows a little girl named Sissy who grew up during the late 1950’s. When her father Billy Joe joined the KKK, her family was turned upside down. His hatred for anything not deemed pure by the Klan fueled him to commit unspeakable acts, not only against humanity, but within his family. He hated Sissy, he hated her before she ever took a breath, and he made sure to show that hatred whenever he could. Although this is a fictional story, it is based on events that were common knowledge to many families at that time, but were simply swept under the rug.

This story details the trials and tribulations that were endured by both sides before the Civil Rights Movement became a prominent fixture.

About The Author
Majfud is one of the main exponents (or is he the founder?) of what he calls “exploration literature”, that is, a literature that has little to do with the literature of fun, entertainment, the cult to the refined literary technique. Majfud’s literature is never an easy-to-read literature. It is a need for literature in which the characters, the environments, the narrator, everything, are immersed in the feelings and existential concerns of the human being, that explores, lives, reflects, and almost never come to a strong response,,, despite to that the story of each character can be like any common life, but it is always, or frequently, complex, or the character or the narrator stops to expose all that in daily life we prefer not to think about.

About The Author
The Fiction Work: “My previous novels explored how people were tied together by crime,” Brooks says. “But with A Butler Christmas, I sought to connect people by the mystery of falling in love with new friends and estranged family. I’m excited and eager and anxious–like going on my sophomore dance. To join the Prodigy Gold family is a great honor and thrills me to my wing tips.” The Non-Fiction Work: “I am very excited to give back to the writing and publishing communities with my short publishing tips. Everyone publishes tomes on the topic and many people get discouraged with respect to employing effective and traditional publishing tactics because of the vast amount of material out there. I’ve decided to do small essays that people can act on and have a clear understanding of it because I explain in detail with examples.” Brooks can be reached for questions about publishing, consultations, and speaking engagements at rbrooks@prodigygoldbooks.com.

Featured: Smith by: Sam B. Miller II

SMITH_Cover_for_review

Title: Smith

Author: Sam B. Miller II

Genre: Fiction/Mystery/Suspense

Format: Paperback/ebook/Audible

240 Pages

Publisher: Independent

Publication Date: Jan, 2017

 

Synopsis:  The past has a way of coming back to live in the present . . . Every once and a while the voice that’s in and out of our hero’s head assures, “Fear not, for I am with you”. That voice is what will be called Smith, a voice from ancient and potent times. That voice – at once droll, clever, mercurial, and deliciously brutal – is one of the many highlights of this lively adventure novel. The incredibly skilled and often quite hostile security agent Nava gives an additional layer of spice as Jake’s partner and budding love interest. In fact, Nava’s strong personality serves as a fine foil to Smith’s as she (even more so than Jake) understands the costs of all the mayhem and death that Smith cavalierly dismisses as collateral damage toward a greater goal.
