    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 
    Author Mary Barr joins me this week to talk about her books.  We'll discuss her novellas, novels & juvenile fiction titles.
    From her novella The Publisher:
    Each day with trust and good faith we send our beloved children off to school. We assume they arrive safely, enjoy time with their friends and learn their lessons. We think we know where they are and who they’re with. But life can change in a heartbeat, so can circumstances, places and people and, as a result we never remain the same. Change is often good, sometimes bad, but always constant. The Publisher takes you into the lives of the Smelt family. Joe, Suzanne and their two children, six year old Libby and thirteen year old Connor.
    It is a normal school day just like any other, until Joe – the publisher – begins reading a manuscripts. In the manuscript he learns that his children are not at school. They have been kidnapped and are being held hostage until the ransom is paid. Each detail of what he must do is precisely laid out as another page of the manuscript unfolds. Suzanne has done someone wrong and, if she can right the situation her children will go free, if not, they will die. And so, they sit and wait for the knock on the door and the next installment of the manuscript that holds within its pages their children’s fate.

    Indie Books Show #65 (Gary Reilly)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guests.
    This week, I'll be doing my first posthumous interview.  No, I won't be speaking to the author from the other side (that's another blogtalk radio category).  I will be interviewing two gentlemen who knew Gary Reilly very well in life and were given the approval to seek publication for his books after his death.
    When he was alive, Gary Reilly devoted his life to perfecting his writing - not seeking agent or publishers. He posthumously gave his books into the hands of Mike Keefe, a retired political cartoonist and Pulitzer Prize winner, and Mark Stevens, a former journalist and acclaimed author in Colorado, for publishing. 
    Of the first five titles – “The Asphalt Warrior,” “Ticket to Hollywood,” “The Heart of Darkness Club,” “Home for the Holidays” and “Doctor Lovebeads” – two hit No. 1 on the Denver area bestsellers list and two have been nominated for the Colorado Book Award.
    Tune in Friday at11AM EST or listen to the archive.

    AN IMPOSITION:


      Henry Cross made a mistake; in fact he made two. The first was to spy for the Soviet Union inside a top-secret U.S. Department of Energy nuclear weapons laboratory. The second was to get caught. When the KGB finds out Henry Cross is a defector, it orders a second mole at Monroe Laboratory to kill Cross in a conspicuous manner. Other KGB agents need to be reminded that disloyalty will not be tolerated. Upon discovery of the murder, the DOE, FBI, and Monroe security conclude that another spy is operating at the site. Not wanting to reveal its intelligence to the mole or create a media circus at a top-secret lab, DOE covers up the murder.
       Into this situation walks Ed Cotter, a newly recruited cold warrior. In a world where hyper-enforced federal regulations and their unintended consequences are the norm, Ed proves himself to be a positive addition to the staff. But one of his colleagues, Curtis Judd, is less than thrilled. Judd provokes Cotter in not so subtle ways, letting him know that he isn’t welcome at Monroe. But Ed Cotter isn’t leaving. In the meantime, the hunt for the spy continues, and Cotter gets drawn into it.
    An Imposition is the first in a series of books based on events at the Department of Energy’s top-secret Monroe nuclear weapons laboratory during the boom years of the Reagan administration.

      The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles Book 3):


    Struggling to find the right balance between loving his sons and upholding justice, David is silent when Amnon rapes his daughter, Tamar, and when Absalom lures Amnon to his death. These crimes go unpunished, because a mysterious change has come upon the king, which his court scribes note even before he does. In the past he had to explain his actions, such as the affair with Bathsheba, to them. Now, they want to understand the opposite thing: his lack of action.
    In families other than his, such matters may be a mere matter of gossip. Yet when assault, incest, and murder occur in the king’s family, they affect matters of the state. David is toppled from his throne, and must escape from the son he adores, Absalom.
    Even as he finds a way to quell the revolt and come back to the City of David, the road ahead seems unclear. How will he find the right successor amongst his remaining sons, the one who will connect to him and continue his legacy?
    This is volume III of the trilogy The David Chronicles, told candidly by the king himself. David uses modern language, indicating that this is no fairytale. Rather, it is a story that is happening here and now.

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Kimberly McKay joins me this week to talk about her books Finding Kylie, Facing Redemption, Coming Home and more.


    From Finding Kylie:  What if … after laying your mother to rest, the mother who has been the only real family you’ve ever known, you discover her secretive past in a set of hidden journals? What would you do if she was the only link to the father you never knew ... a father you’ve been told was dead, but was indeed very much alive?



    Twenty-five year old Chastity searches through her mother’s belongings in hopes of finding any shred of evidence that leads to her father. A man, she’d always felt was out there ... somewhere. Any glimmer of hope is dashed when she reads one tiny line scrawled across the back page of her mother’s notebook. One traumatic sentence is all it takes to unravel her life long desire in a matter of seconds.

    Chastity uncovers the sordid truth, a truth that her mom, Kylie, tried to hide at all costs. This newfound information plunges Chastity into a new world of control, power, and hurt. With the help of her mother’s best friend a handsome attorney, Chastity sorts her way through her new found family ties and the costs that come with it.

    Viral Mythology: How the Truth of the Ancients was Encoded and Passed Down through Legend, Art, and Architecture:


     Behind every myth, fairy tale, and legend--hidden within the art, song, and structures of ancient times--is an encoded layer of wisdom, science, and truth passed down throughout history. This book will examine how information went "viral" long before the Internet, and served as the foundation for mythology, sacred architecture, and symbolic imagery throughout the ancient world.

    Viral Mythology reveals:


    ?  How primitive and ancient cultures conveyed cutting-edge scientific knowledge in their origin stories and myths


    ?  Why esoteric knowledge was hidden in symbols, art, and architecture during times of religious oppression and persecution


    ?  How stories, songs, and art served to describe actual historical events


    ?  Why diverse civilizations told the same stories and created the same art with common themes and symbols, despite no apparent communication

     From the great myths of the Greek, Roman, and Norse to the texts of the world's major religions, from folklore and fairy tales of old to sacred edifices and monuments, from cave paintings to the mysterious symbology of the Tarot, Viral Mythology uncovers the information highway of the past, and explores how it affects the more modern methods of communication today.

     It all began once upon a time....
