VICTORY COVE - Danger and Romance on Maine's Coast
May I dip my toes in the water?
I don't know if anyone loved those Victoria Holt gothic romances as much as I did, but that's pretty much what you get with me.
Danger. Romance. Dark cliffs. Sinister house. That's generally my formula. Of course that same formula was used in Scooby Doo.
WIDOW'S TALE -
Every night Serena stood on the deck of O'Flanagans Tavern, searching Maine's rugged coast for a sign of her husband's body. Though he was pronounced lost at sea, Alan Murphy still haunted her as only his malevolent spirit could. If she could just find his body, surely this torture would stop.
It had been ten years since Brett Murphy saw his sister in-law, although the separation was by design, to avoid temptation. Now Brett was in Victory Cove, not to declare his feelings for Serena, but to discover the truth about his brother's death. In doing so, he must battle Serena's ghosts, both real and contrived.
VICTORY COVE -
Megan Summers thought that she was safe in the remote coastal village of Victory Cove. For a year she hid in seclusion, preparing for the battle ahead by building her own target range and practicing adaptability in the darkened halls of Wakefield House. But, today a stranger appeared on her doorstep. Was he it? Was he her executioner?
For Jake Grogan, his trek to Victory Cove started out with a cryptic letter from a woman who after thirty-five years of silence identified herself as his mother. He was told to locate Wakefield House, the home of his grandmother. Jake found the sinister residence on the outermost crag of the ocean, but the woman who answered the door was not elderly. She was young, attractive, and looked like she would do about anything to get him off her doorstep.

His Robot Girlfriend
My science-fiction novel His Robot Girlfriend is available free at Smashwords.com, Feedbooks.com, and Manybooks.net. It should be in the ibookstore by now, but I can't check until my iPad gets here (Jun 4) .
Mike Smith's life was crap, living all alone, years after his wife had died and his children had grown up and moved away. Then he saw the commercial for the Daffodil. Far more than other robots, the Daffodil could become anything and everything he wanted it to be. Mike's life is about to change.
Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Elven Princess
Eaglethorpe Buxton and the Elven Princess is a comedy/fantasy story and is available free at both Smashwords.com and Feedbooks.com. It should also be appearing at iBooks soon. Remember, it is free. Don't pay for it.
Eaglethorpe Buxton, famed adventurer and story-teller, friend to those in need of a friend and guardian to those in need of a guardian. He is a liar and braggart, not to be trusted, especially around pies. Who are we to believe? Buxton himself leads us through his world as he comes to the aid of… a poor orphan? An elven princess? Who can guess with Eaglethorpe himself telling the tale?
Excellent idea! Thanks for creating a place for authors to let iPad users know about their books. I'll have to dig out my promo blurbs and give it a shot.
Awesome. Looks my kind of read. Cool video, too!
Wow, Simon. Having written one novel and now working on my second I know what a time consuming procedure it is. So I'm impressed by the number of books you've written! When do you eat or sleep? LOL
The Ezekiel Code - "2012 is coming...Or is it?"
"The plot is intriguing and interesting to the point of being bestseller material."
-- Red Adept's Kindle Book Review Blog
I'm pleased to announce my debut novel, The Ezekiel Code, is enjoying its 28th week as an amazon.com "Best Seller" in "Occult" and "Religious Fiction" as of the date of this posting! Thank you, readers!
It's all here in one puzzling page-turner of a novel: conspiracy, codes, prophecy, secret societies, UFOs, ancient mysteries, esoteric lore, the prophetic Mayan calendar end-date of 2012, alternative interpretations of Biblical events, mystifying metaphysics, good guys, bad guys, murder most foul, a touch of romance and a trace of sci-fi. All of this, and more, is intricately woven into the multifaceted storyline of THE EZEKIEL CODE
Gary Val Tenuta - former contributing writer for Fate Magazine (U.S.) and Beyond Magazine (U.K.) and a guest on numerous radio programs (including Dreamland, hosted by best selling author Whitley Strieber and The X-Zone hosted by Rob McConnell) - has crafted a provocative mystery novel with an esoteric edge that may upset certain segments of the population while at the same time enthralling others with it's alternative perspective on reality and its vision for the future.
From its cryptic prologue to its dramatic climax, THE EZEKIEL CODE blends fact and fiction into a tale of mystery, adventure and high strangeness:
Zeke Banyon is a handsome Catholic seminary dropout who now runs a homeless shelter in Seattle's old waterfront district. Angela Ann Martin is an attractive young widow who just wants a simple part-time job at the shelter. But a single twist of fate turns their simple lives upside down when together they stumble onto a mysterious code and a rumor about a lost scroll penned by the prophet, Ezekiel, thousands of years ago. They soon find themselves tumbling down the rabbit hole into a world of secret societies, metaphysics, mystery and murder as they jet across continents in a race to understand the code that will lead them to an ancient artifact of profound importance. Dodging rogue Jesuit priests at every turn and unaware that the Illuminati are ever-present in the shadows, Zeke and Angela soon discover it's not just their own lives that are in danger but also the lives of everyone on the planet.
Is Zeke Banyon the Chosen One of an obscure ancient prophecy? And if so, can he successfully accomplish the mission fate has in store for him? Nothing in seminary school could ever have prepared him for this.
2012 is coming... Or is it?
The clock is ticking…The code must be deciphered…And only one man can save the planet...If he can just figure out how...Before it's too late.
"Gary Val Tenuta gives Dan Brown a run for his "Lost Symbol" money with The Ezekiel Code."
– Laura Faeth, author of "I FOUND ALL THE PARTS: Healing the Soul Through Rock 'n' Roll"
"The plot is intriguing and interesting to the point of being bestseller material."
- Red Adept's Kindle Book Review Blog
"Entertaining and enlightening. A course in high strangeness."
– Jay Weidner, documentary producer and co-author of Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye
"High-concept fiction. An unforgettable book."
– Rai Aren, co-author of Secret of the Sands
"An impressive feat."
– Peter A. Gersten, editor, PAG eNews
– Michael Tsarion, internationally renown divination scholar, author and lecturer
THE EZEKIEL CODE, an EVVY Award nominee, is available in paperback and Kindle.

Hi David -
How did you manage to embed the youtube video into your post? I tried to use the youtube embed code to display my video but it didn't work. Just curious.
Advantage Disadvantage: A Sports Murder Mystery 99 cents
My debut novel Advantage Disadvantage is based on my 18+ years as an Illinois High School Basketball Official. The book weaves a tale of greed and corruption of the adults surrounding a prep basketball phenom around Chicago. You might recognize some of the characters in this thriller. Here's what one reader said:
"Advantage Disadvantage is a nail-biting, behind-the-scenes pass into the world of high school sports and the people who make and break it. Set in Chicago, its innately urban backdrop is full of distinctly Windy City landmarks. This is the perfect read for sports fans that love an insider's view...an insightful and deliciously-sinful plot full of twists and turns. You'll find the perfect blend of bravery, betrayal and who-done-it adventure in this vividly penned thriller. "
Download it for 99 cents and enjoy!
