Shadowland

Shadowland is a story of historical fantasy set in Dark Ages Britain.

`I have lived more years than I can remember, probably more than the sum of all your years combined. Kings have called me friend and brigands have sworn to burn the flesh from my bones even if they have to search all seven halls of the shadowland to find me.'

On the night of midwinter's eve, a storyteller takes his listeners back to the Dark ages and a tale from his youth.

Deserted by its Roman masters, Britain has been invaded by the Saxons at the invitation of Vortigern, traitorous leader of the Britons. Now, as the tribes unite to reclaim their land, one man must rise to lead them and become their true and only king.

J.B. Bowles

Daniel has just turned seventeen but he still hasn't hit puberty. He is only five feet tall, no body hair and pudgy. He and his buddy, Jimmy, have one last game on the Ouija Board before he moves away to an odd country house owned by a new stepfather.

Daniel's mother Kelli, has married Duncan Osborne , a high school football coach who has taken an interest in his overly indulged new stepson.

Daniel despises his new "xxxx-for-brains" stepfather, mentally accusing him of abuse.

One night Daniel awakens to someone in his room and is propelled into a fast pace sexual paranormal escapade, accelerating him into puberty.

His friend Jimmy comes to spend a few days with him and they soon get caught up in the most confusing adventure either one of them could have imagined.

I am a storyteller who just finished a six part epic story that I have been working on for more than half my life. It has affected my family and friends in ways that I am sometimes embarrassed by. It has affected my health mentally and physically, so when I wrote "THE END" it was a feeling that one rarely experiences. Like the birth of your children or the first time you meet the love of your life. It was an experience, an accomplishment. I pushed my chair back and stared at the computer. For a reason I still cannot explain I pulled up to my desk and grabbed my keyboard. I blacked out and twenty-three hours later this is what I had written.

1923: A Memoir Lies and Testaments 99 cents

t's a personal as well as a social history. Smith has the knack of bringing the times to life in a way that few writers can manage. It's the ability to tell a story, the knowledge of when to move on & not labour a point.--The Bookbag

1923 is a book that succeeds in two ways with ease, both as a personal memoir of a life lived in a volatile age and as a record of that age for all time. --The Current Reader

"1923" is uplifting and highly recommended. --Midwest Book Review

1923: A Memoir is a protest against social injustice, corruption, war, famine, poverty, and societies blinded by greed. More importantly, it is the story of hope and the notion that anything can be overcome if desired. --The Publishing Guru
Smith stays true to himself and his inner voice as he recounts the events of his early life.-Feeding My Book Addiction
Product Description
To say that Harry Smith was born under an unlucky star would be an understatement. Born in England in 1923, Smith chronicles the tragic story of his early life in this first volume of his memoirs. He presents his family's early history-their misfortunes and their experiences of enduring betrayal, inhumane poverty, infidelity, and abandonment.

1923: A Memoir presents the story of a life lyrically described, capturing a time both before and during World War II when personal survival was dependent upon luck and guile. During this time, failure insured either a trip to the workhouse or burial in a common grave. Brutally honest, Smith's story plummets to the depths of tragedy and flies up to the summit of mirth and wonder, portraying real people in an uncompromising, unflinching voice.

1923: A Memoir tells of a time and place when life, full of raw emotion, was never so real.

The K-Frost Caper

"I liked the characters, the settings, and how the investigators used technology to their advantage. Definitely a read for mystery lovers, the story...conjured up images of Miami Vice..." Laurel Rain-Snow TOP 500 AMAZON REVIEWER (4 STARS)

Cherokee Luna Nightcrow isn't your ordinary 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. insurance investigator. She's armed with a Yellow Jacket Stun Gun Case for iPhone 4; a Looper Law Enforcement S&W Shield Flashbang Holster RH for her .38; and beauty and brains that won't quit. She's a freelancer: All yours, anytime--if the price is right. And for $50,000, Luna is hired to fly south and stop con man Kelvin Frost (who leaves a trail of cold-blooded murder and mayhem in Miami).

Action, mystery, and romance abound as Luna fights to bring Frost down.

And...

The Steel Deal

A 2012 NIGHTOWL REVIEWS TOP SUSPENSE PICK (4.5 Stars)

"This is an exciting story of industrial espionage, trendy technology, shifty villains, and an intelligent courier. Told in first person, I was kept entertained and fully engaged..." --Laurie Jenkins, Night Owl Reviews (4.5 stars)

Sonny Busco, aged 55, is an out of shape, out of luck African American private eye who owes everyone money. When the bills come due, Sonny hasn't a clue as to how to pay. Then a client comes his way and asks Sonny to save the day, by delivering a mysterious case to Santa Fe. For $2,500, Sonny can't refuse. But he soon finds out this case may be his last, when what appear to be agents from the other side come after what he's carrying: Sentient steel...which is to die for and kill for.

Both books are available in Kindle and paperback!

Just in time for Halloween. Pick up a copy of TATTERDEMON today for ONLY 99cents - down from its usual $3.99.
Tatterdemon

So what is it about?
In 1691 the town of Crossfall taught the witch Thessaly how to die.

They beat her, they shot her, they hung her - but nothing worked. When they finally tried to bury her alive Thessaly set the field against them.

The first man died as a gust of wind harrowed the meat from his bones. A root,flung like a dirty javelin, cut a second man down. Many more deaths followed. The Preacher Fell impaled the witch upon her very own broom but she dragged him down into the field to wait for three more centuries.

Three hundred years later Maddy Harker will murder her bullying husband Vic. She will bury him in the field as she buried her abusive father years before that. The very same field where the revenant spirit of Thessaly Cross lies waiting. In three days Vic will rise again - a thing of dirt, bone and hatred. Men will call him the Tatterdemon. And hell - and Thessaly - will follow.

Where Dreams Are Born I hope you'll check it out.

It was supposed to be a win-win situation-a safe environment in which to raise a son for single mom Vicky, housekeeping and childcare for widowed Jack. Neither one wants or expects anything more. Life, however, has more in store than either one imagines.

Where Dreams Are Born

Corina of Big Al's Books & Pals says, "Where Dreams Are Born is a well-written romantic novel with elements of suspense. I found DeBacco's writing fresh and evocative, highly readable and interesting. Characterization is good, the dialogue flows well, and the story was compelling enough to keep my attention and pique my curiosity about what would happen next. I found myself picking up the story in my spare moments during the day, wondering how the author was going to resolve certain issues."

NOVEMBER 4: Shelling very heavy - several V2 rockets seen.

Finding Harry Styles: A Novel Starting November 1st a Countdown deal when this book will be available for just 0.99 until November 4th.
Review: What if all the power in the world just disappeared? No electricity, batteries didn't work, engines of any kind didn't work. And you are hundreds, possibly even thousands, of miles away from your loved ones. What would you do? Where would you go? Remember, no phones, no internet, no cars, trucks, planes, or trains. What now? How would you survive? This is what happens in "Finding Harry Styles". When I was offered the book by the author in return for an honest review, I was reminded that it is not on of my usual genres and there was a good possibility I would not like the book, but he was willing to take the chance if I was. Not only did I enjoy the book, I read it in just one day. It really had me thinking and I had to check and make sure my phone and tablet were still working. I would recommend this book to anyone over 13 years old, due to some very mild sexual situations and scenes of suicide and quite a bit of violence. But the book does make you think, what would you do?
