New Release: This Old Cafe by Marci Boudreaux

 

Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 19, 2017

Jenna Reid purchased the Stonehill Café to prove to herself that her ex-husband was wrong…that she could make her dreams come true. Three years later, all she has is a crumbling building, no social life, and her bruised pride.

Pride is something Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Maguire lost long ago and isn’t likely to find living in the alley behind the café. He just needs a little time to get on his feet. In the interim, keeping an eye on the overworked café owner gives him a sense of purpose. He has no intentions of making his presence known until he hears the woman screaming late one night.

He rushes into the café but instead of finding her in dire straits, he finds a broken pipe and Jenna—soaking wet and holding a wrench. With her last bit of hope fading, Jenna accepts Daniel’s help to fix up her building, but it doesn’t take long for them to start trying to fix each other.

 Dianna Friedman never expected her husband to leave her. Who does? But she’s making the most of what she has left–a sarcastic near-grown son and a mountain of bills that just keeps growing. She’s in over her head, but she is determined to survive.

Everyone else may have seen it coming, but Paul O’Connell was blindsided by his wife’s betrayal. Determined to prevent her from bleeding him dry during their divorce, he turns to the only person he thinks can help him—the wife of his wife’s lover.

New Release: Raven Hill by Richard D. Cooper

Recently widowed, plagued with insomnia, Jeff Hanks is a man teetering on the brink.

The sleepy community of Raven, nestled comfortably on Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, is subjected to a terrifying storm that awakens a slumbering malignant nightmare.

Jeff Hanks seeks out the welcoming tranquility of Raven, hoping it will ease his grieving mind, but what he discovers is a town slowly being ravaged by an unspeakable evil. Slaughtered animals litter the moors; peculiar hairless creatures are seen on CCTV, and something dark, ancient and abhorrent lurks inside the old mausoleum on top of Raven Hill.

As worlds collide, Hanks finds not only his faith stretched to breaking point, but his very sanity threatened by a being that can enter human minds at will, bringing your desires to flesh, and making your deepest, darkest fears a terrible reality.

 

Excerpt

   “We think there might be something in the mausoleum on top of Raven Hill,’ Franklin explained, ‘something . . . I don’t know . . . something ancient and incredibly evil. It can’t get out, but it wants out, if you understand me.’

Julia had regarded them silently for a moment before answering. ‘I think I understand,’ she’d replied, ‘in fact, I’ve been dreaming about that place, and those dreams have not been pleasant.’ She gestured to a table and chairs in the living room and told them to sit. She’d then drawn the curtains and sat down herself, at the head of the table. And the séance began.

‘I can’t bre . . . (gasp) . . . I can’t bre . . .

Jeff watched as Julia’s chest heaved up and down and her fingers became clawed on the tabletop. Her crimson nails scratched and tapped a jittery tattoo on the wood.  Franklin opened his eyes and gave Jeff a searching look that silently asked: Is she ok?

Nodding, Jeff raised a finger to his lips, indicating that they shouldn’t interrupt her.”

Excerpt from the Book

 “A tiny pebble suddenly landed in Ben’s lap; he looked up and could see Douglas who was silhouetted against the dying embers of the fire signalling to him. Ben carefully reached for his pistols, and with a metallic click, he cocked them. He could see that Edward had also been alerted and now the adrenaline really kicked in, he could hear his heartbeat as it thumped in his chest. Minutes seemed like hours as they ticked slowly passed.

A ghostly silhouette ran in towards them from the shadows; there was a blinding flash, a loud bang, and then a scream. Douglas had fired his pistol and one of the attackers lay writhing on the ground. Out of the dark came the other bandits, shrieking and yelling trying to frighten their victims.

Ben could just make out a figure running towards him; he gently squeezed the trigger of one of his pistols. The flash temporarily blinded him as the gun kicked in his hand. The running figure, who had probably never seen Ben at the base of the tree, was now spinning like a rag doll, his legs, and arms flying in all directions until he fell in a crumpled heap close to Ben’s feet.

There followed a moment of almost silence. The gunshots were still echoing across the lake, and then suddenly out of the dark Ian Douglas called: “Don’t shoot it’s me, Douglas.”

Jamie Douglas had thrown wood onto the fire, which blazed brightly illuminating the campsite. His ghillie came into the light dragging two bodies with him. He unceremoniously dumped them by the fire, both had their throats cut.”

New Release: Bertha: The Swiss Trader’s Daughter by Eleni Trataris Cotton

It is 1915 and the Great War changes everything.

Born of two cultures, black and white, the Deuss sisters live lives of privilege in Nyasaland, now Malawi, a magnificent country where people walk in fear of slave traders, where big game is hunted, and affluent colonials drink cocktails at sundown.

It ends suddenly when catastrophic events tear their family apart. Bertha and her sisters are left unprotected in a male dominated, racist society.

Rejecting despair, they forge a new path for themselves with courage and determination. But is this enough to open society’s closed doors, to build a new life, find love and defy what society expects lone girls of mixed race to do?

This is fact-fiction meticulously researched, a novel and adventure story which is based on real peoples’ lives, people who experienced the depths of tragedy, yet also the heights of joy during their lives on an unforgettably beautiful and wild continent.  It is a slice of history, a window into an enthralling, exciting and doomed world that is gone forever.

 

About the Author

Eleni was born in Malawi and educated in Zimbabwe (Southern Rhodesia) and the United Kingdom. She now lives in Kent with her husband John and son Nick and spends as much time as possible in Greece on the island where her father was born and where she has three Rescue dogs. Four of her other children also live in the South East where she can keep an interfering eye on them but one has escaped to the Wirral. Part of her heart still lingers in Malawi where she forgot it when she had to leave.

 

 

Excerpt 

 “Elsa was finding her life a struggle and she reflected ironically how just a few short weeks ago she had been feeling so content, so fulfilled in the new life that she had chosen for herself.

But then her father’s letter had arrived and turned all of their worlds upside-down. Probably the most difficult thing was keeping up appearances in front of A Mayi who, thankfully, was going from strength to strength, busy with animals and gardens and happy to have her sisters close by, though she would never admit this.

Elsa’s main worry was Paulina’s ability to keep quiet about the letter. Paulina thrived on misery, thought Elsa irritably, and was probably bursting to unload onto their mother the unhappy news that had so disrupted their lives. She had to trust that she would not, but A Mayi’s vulnerability was causing her serious pangs of anxiety.

Then there was the Andrew situation. Now, more than ever, she wanted the matter cleared up, as she became increasingly sure that she did want to marry him. His presence gave her much comfort and he was able to distract her from the underlying clouds of unhappiness that blotted her view of the blue sky. She decided to confront him on his next visit and steeled herself for what was inevitably going to be a difficult conversation.”

Bernadette’s work is a beacon of hope and generosity. This lovely book is packed full of inspiring ideas for how we can all “be the change” and help create a kinder, happier and more trusting world.’

THE LITTLE BOOK OF
KINDNESS

By Bernadette Russell

Published in hardback by Orion Spring on 7th September 2017, priced at £7.99

 

A THOUGHTFUL EXPLORATION INTO THE THEME OF KINDNESS, WITH PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS FOR HOW TO BE KIND IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES

 

‘Being kind to yourself, to strangers, to those you love, to the world – every day, at every opportunity – will make you happier and more connected to everything and everyone than you have ever been.’

 Prompted by the seeming hopelessness of the world around her, Bernadette Russell undertook a pledge to be kind to a stranger every day for a year. Whether it was baking cakes for neighbours, giving up her seat on public transport, leaving money in books or volunteering at her local charities, the experience left Bernadette with a feeling of wanting to inspire others.

The Little Book of Kindness is packed with fun, practical tips and interactive exercises that encourage you to be kind in every area of life – be it online, to strangers, to the environment, in your community or to yourself – and help to change the world, one act of kindness at a time.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 Bernadette Russell first started her blog, 366 Days of Kindness, in 2011, detailing her attempt to be kind to a stranger every day in response to the UK riots earlier that year. In 2015 she was selected as one of the Southbank Centre’s 67 Changemakers for this on-going project, which has resulted in two large scale interactive installations, an international touring theatre show, a US radio documentary and two children’s activity books. Bernadette is a columnist for Balance magazine, writing a monthly musing on the theme of kindness.

Bernadette is available for publicity, for more information please contact Leanne Oliver in the Orion Press Office.

Mystery
Date Published: September 1, 2017
Publisher: Imajin Books
 

As Sheriff Piper Blackwell rushes to a clandestine meeting with an aging, paranoid veteran who believes spies are trailing his every move, she is caught in a fierce thunderstorm. Pounding rain drums against the bluff, washing away the earth and revealing a grisly secret someone tried to bury a long time ago.

 Putting a name to the skeleton on the bluff, and searching for the thief who robbed the old veteran of his life’s earnings, sends Piper delving into the sleepy towns that dot her rural county. Now she’s digging into pasts perhaps best left alone.

 Accompanied by Chief Deputy Oren Rosenberg, Piper seeks to expose a truth someone wants to remain forever hidden. The investigation may have started with a thunderstorm, but Piper aims to finish it and find justice. Uncovering fragments of Spencer County’s history could prove more dangerous—and deadlier—than she ever expected.
