    Indie Books #76 (Scott Pinsker)

    in Books

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


    Author Scott Pinsker joins me this week to talk about his book, The Second Coming: A Love Story


    Two men claim to be the Second Coming of Christ. Each claims the other is Satan in disguise. But only one is telling the truth. In "The Second Coming: A Love Story," the devilish new novel by Scott Pinsker, the culture war between Red America and Blue America turns shockingly real when two self-declared saviors appear on earth. The first “messiah” attracts legions of liberal and secular-progressive followers with his message of New Age brotherhood, quickly becoming the darling of the left. The second “messiah” preaches fire-and-brimstone traditional Christianity, gaining a grassroots army of conservative worshipers ready to battle to the death. It’s finally happened: Red America and Blue America are headed for Armageddon! Novelist Scott Pinsker is a Tampa Bay-based celebrity publicist who has also written for FOXNews.com as a marketing expert. As Pinsker tells it: “Late one night I had an unsettling thought: If the Devil truly wanted to con mankind, he wouldn’t have a pitchfork and horns. All those horror movies have it wrong; a pitchfork and horns are bad marketing. Instead, his smartest strategy for activating new followers would be to appear as a holy man – and claim the faith of his target audience. Because if I were Satan’s publicist, that’s what I’d recommend.”

    THE POE CONSEQUENCE:


       In a section of Los Angeles near Dodger Stadium, two rival gangs rule the streets. For the Alvarado Street Diablos, it's been a year since the murder of one of their closest members at the hands of their sworn enemy, the North Rampart Lobos. A drive-by killing in his honor is planned, but things go wrong and an innocent bystander is the victim. Several hours later the one who pulled the trigger suffers a horrifying death, caused by something never before seen in its uniqueness. Many more such cases follow, all involving only these two gangs among the hundreds throughout the city. And each death occurs at the same time of day. The exact same time of day. What can these two enemies do to survive against an unstoppable power intent on their mutual destruction? How is a gang-hating young boy's attempt to save the life of a gang member tied into preventing a loved one's soul from eternal damnation? What does a mysterious psychic's prophecy conveyed earlier in New Orleans have to do with all of this? Exploring both the darkness and hope that define our emotions, The Poe Consequence integrates social and ethnic divisions through acts of fate and supernatural horror for the reader to observe and imagine.

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


    Author Martin Roy Hill joins me this week to talk about his books, including: Eden, Empty Places, The Killing Depths & Duty. 


    From his most recent release - Eden: A Sci-Fi Novella


    "If this is Paradise, how bad could Hell be?" A sandstorm uncovers a long buried secret in the Iraqi desert, an ancient Sumerian temple dating back at least 6,000 years to the beginning of civilization. An American army patrol sent to investigate the ruins is trapped inside the temple’s eroded walls, first by an insurgent ambush then by another, even more powerful sandstorm. When an enemy mortar shell blasts an opening into a hidden burial chamber, Captain Adam Cadman and his soldiers take refuge deep in the ruins. What they find hidden inside threatens to destroy every belief about the beginnings of mankind—as well as modern society as we know it.

    Indie Books #72 (D.D. Lanz)

    in Books

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


    Author D.D. Lanz joins me this week to talk about his novel: Going, Going, Gone: A Journey to the Hereafter and more.


    About the book:


    John Janne has a good life--a thriving law practice, a wonderful family. But when Janne is diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and given six months to live, everything changes. Stunned, John wonders about his course of action, particularly about how to tell his family--they'd been after him for years to quit smoking. Rather than putting his family through the agony of watching him die a painful death, he will take his own life.


    But suicide presents problems--how to do it so that his family doesn't wonder what went wrong in his life and blame themselves for his death. No, it will need to seem an accident. He decides on a canoe trip in northern Minnesota's Boundary Waters where he will drown his diseased lungs.


    Lanz's Going, Going, Gone is more than a novel about a man's plan to end his life. It is a philosophical walk through discoveries about death--and afterlife. The book would be of interest to atheist, agnostics, and Christians struggling with their faith.

    TIM CONNOR HITS TROUBLE~


      Tim Connor Hits Trouble defies conventional genres. It is funny, occasionally violent, intelligent, controversial and full of sexual twists and turns. We meet Tim Connor just as his marriage hits the rocks and as he is about to 'escape' to a new job in the Social Science Department at Wash University. Far from finding tranquillity, Tim 'hits trouble' in Wash both personally and at work. Now 'on the loose' he has several interesting and 'unusual' encounters with women. At work, Tim finds himself drawn into a conflict between an old rebel academic, Henry Jones, and the ambitious Head of Faculty, Howard Swankie that culminates in a tense and dramatic climax. Within the novel's lively narrative, characters argue, sometimes angrily, over the direction of contemporary higher education - making this a relevant as well as a gripping and highly enjoyable novel.

    Indie Books #80 (David Robert)

    in Books

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


    Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.


    When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.


    David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.


    But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.

    MAILBOX~


      It's 1976.  The USA turns 200 while scrappy agnostic Sandy Drue turns 10, finds an electric typewriter in her father's office, and begins turning out page after page on the conflicting demands of burgeoning adolescence and her own quiet search for the Meaning of Life. 


      The result is a beguiling collection of loosely linked short stories and vignettes, gathered by a now 13-year-old Sandy into an unconventional novel structured like a blog, long before blogging. 


      In the wake of the Watergate scandal, American society is in a state of bewilderment, the economy is fragile, and Sandy's friends are secretly reading Judy Blume -- against their mothers' warnings.  The Drue family has moved from New York to Small Town USA where Sandy and her brother try to find their way to fit in. What they find instead is something ultimately more valuable.  


      Mailbox is an unusual mother-daughter love story that is both hopeful and heartbreaking... profound and good fun.


      "Deep, delightful, and compulsively readable."
