Gastien: The Cost of a Dream: Free eBook

Editor’s Note: In GASTIEN: THE COST OF A DREAM, peasants learn that they shouldn’t dream. The cost can be extremely high.

Book Description: Gastien Beauchamp has far bigger dreams than a mere peasant has a right to. When he leaves home to pursue his dreams in nineteenth century Paris, he has no idea how high of a cost he’ll pay in order to survive. Regardless, he vows to stop at nothing in order to fulfill his dream of becoming an artist and great lover. After all, what could be worse than the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father? Sometimes the “impossible” is possible—but the cost can be extremely high.

Author’s Inspiration: As an artist and nonconformist myself, I have always been drawn to the bohemian art era of nineteenth century Paris. I also love character driven novels and wanted to tell an epic family saga that starts with a peasant who had a dream to become a great artist. What could possibly go wrong?

 Caddy Rowland

 I like a book that makes me think and feel. A book that helps me understand another type of person’s motivation, even if it differs from what I’ve embraced as acceptable. That is what I strive for when writing. I don’t much care for predictable stories, nor do I like books that follow a specific formula. I like to tell stories about the sublime joy and bitter tragedy of being human. My writing is raw, “real”, graphic, and sometimes brutal. There isn’t always a happy ending, although sometimes it happens. My main characters have major flaws, and they don’t always learn the lessons predictable storylines demand. People don’t always change to become what you want, so neither should fictional characters.

My novels aren’t for everyone. Then again, they may just be for you.

I became an author because my nest was empty. My youngest son left for college and I was devastated. I have always been a voracious reader and thought I would write a book. That was seven books ago. Before I finish one book, another story is forming in my mind. I am obsessed. I still take a break from writing to spend time with my family.

SHAYNE PARKINSON

I write historical novels set in New Zealand, starting in the 1880s. I’m currently working on my sixth book, this one covering the years from 1918 to 1923. I’m fascinated by social history, particularly that of my own country. I was born in New Zealand, and apart from two years in England have lived here all my life. I’m married to my childhood sweetheart, who grew up in the farming valley that’s the inspiration for my imaginary one. We have a few acres in the countryside, where we have an orchard and a large vegetable garden, and a small flock of sheep to keep the grass down. We make our own wine, cider, jams, jellies and sauces.

Last Flight of the Electra: Free eBook for Kindle

Editor’s Note: LAST FLIGHT OF THE ELECTRA is a modern historical mystery surrounding the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. It’s a sailor’s, pilot’s, and military history buff’s dream book!

Book Description: Last Flight Of The Electra begins with the story of an old Polynesian man named Truc who is discovered sailing a vessel he has obviously built from the remaining parts of Amelia Earhart’s Airplane, 800 miles out of Hawaii. As Truc struggles to bring Amelia’s story to the modern world through her last diary, he befriends Captain Steve Channing of the United States Coast Guard and forever changes the soon-to-be blind Captain’s life by teaching him ancient ways of sailing, long lost to the modern world. This story is a modern tale with a historical twist that will keep you on your seat as you discover the brutal truth behind the Japanese occupation of the Marshal Islands long before Word War Two. It is a tale of hope, love, friendship and finding inner peace.

Author’s Inspiration: I was inspired to write this book upon being introduced to a jail cell in which Amelia Earhart may have once been a captive. The island’s hidden history gave good reason for the story since it was a top secret military base used by the Japanese. Also, I was once saved by the United States Coast Guard and I wanted to make sure their service was saluted in this novel.

Exit Unicorns is worthy of many readings and there are details to discover and love on every re-read.

Book Description:  In this sweeping and powerful epic, the journey begins in the ‘terrible beauty’ of Northern Ireland during a time when conflict reigns and no one is spared from tragedy and sorrow – the time known as The Troubles.

All three lives are on a collision course with each other against the backdrop of the burgeoning civil rights movement and a nation on the brink of revolution

Author’s Inspiration: My family comes from Northern Ireland and I wanted to answer the one question I was often asked when people found out about my ancestry- ‘The Irish, do they even know what they are fighting about?’ Yes, they did and do. This story is my answer to that question.
