THE PLATINUM RAVEN AND OTHER NOVELLAS:
The Platinum Raven and other novellas is a paperback comprising a collection of Rohan Quine's four novellas The Platinum Raven, The Host in the Attic, Apricot Eyes and Hallucination in Hong Kong, each novella being also available by itself as an ebook. All four are literary fiction with elements of magical realism and a dusting of horror, celebrating the darkest and brightest possibilities of human imagination, personality and language.
The Platinum Raven is a triple convulsion whereby our heroine Raven escalates herself into the Chocolate Raven and then the Platinum Raven, from London to Dubai to the tower in the hills in the desert - then back down again, forever changed.
The Host in the Attic is a hologram of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, digitised and reframed in cinematic style, set in London's Docklands in a few years' time.
In Apricot Eyes, a cat-and-mouse pursuit through the New York City night involves a preacher, a psychic and a dominatrix, broadcast live on air - until a horror is unearthed, bringing two of them together and the third to a sticky end.
In Hallucination in Hong Kong, sliding from joy to nightmare and back, a plane-flight frames a journey into Jaymi's and Angel's polarised identities and perceptions, where past and present merge in an obsessive fantasy of love, death, horror and apocalyptic beauty.
Ten years ago Rico Lamoureux left behind everything he ever knew and headed for the other side of the world in the name of love. Never could he have imagined what lay ahead. Faced with overwhelming obstacles under Third World conditions, he refused to return home without his soul mate and therefore remains among the harsh environment he describes as “the complete opposite of the Land of Opportunity.” -
With so many years having passed, Rico’s unwavering American spirit has kept him going strong, now using his passion for storytelling to pave the way towards a better future. -
In the second episdoe of the INDIE BOOK REBELS podcast, we chatted with two writers at different stages in their indie careers.
Percival Constantine, popular blogger, and Indie writer in the Action Adventure genre published his first Indie book on LULU, Fallen, in 2009. Since then he's produced multiple titles and his fan base is growing every day.
Sophia Fedderson, a barely-legal (very young) singer and artist, has been designing high-end book covers while developing her writing chops on two novellas which she hopes to publish soon.
In this show, we chat about BAD and GOOD book cover design and Sophie gives the host's DIY place holder cover a "not the worst she's seen" verdict. Percival chats about the state of indie publishing, self-editing while writing, beta readers and writer groups and his favorite writing books.
Welcome to a very special show tonight. You may remember at Christmas the songs we played on our show that was performed by the Franklin family. Wild Bill works with Keith and found out that they do not just have musical talent, Keith's wife has written songs, and is a budding author in the family! The release of "THREADS OF TIME" moved up the charts with Amazon faster then Bill can eat hot pancakes! Christian romance is a topic that is pretty foreign to Bill. You could say that romance in general is a foreign topic for him! That did not stop us from asking the authors to be a part of our show. What do we mean by authors. "Threads of Time" is a collection of seven Christian romantic novellas, about a very special quilt passing through time. This quilt was intended to grace the marriage bed of a young couple, but never fulfilling its original purpose. It travels through many hands and decades, lending comfort to its temporary owners before being passed on. A "Thimbleful of Peace" is by Constance Shilling Stevens, "Tattered Hopes" is by Ralph Vogel, "A Night With No Stars" is by J. Michele Franklin (Keith's wife), "Mending the Widow’s Heart" is by Marjorie Vawter, "A Thread of Hope" is by Darlene A. Dodds, "Frayed" is by Eileen Key, "A Patchwork Promise" is by K. Marie Libel. You can download this book on Amazon, and I think there is a hard copy release coming out due to the success of this book already. These writers worked under the support of Kim Vogel Sawyer, which is well known and loved for her books. We probably will not have time tonight, but we will get them back to talk about their new publishing company.

In July 2012, she joined the ranks of some of the heaviest hitting authors in Urban Literature.
To date, BlaQue has written four full length novels, two novellas, three short stories and is featured in an anthology with some of her G Street Chronicles sisters.
BlaQue has recently started her own publishing company Pink Angel Publications.
