[SIZE=3]A rock-n-roll vampire tale with a time travel twist!
[SIZE=2]By Gary Val Tenuta, author of the best selling novel, The Ezekiel Code
Set primarily in the late 1960s, this seductively shocking short story (approx. 7,000 words) begins innocently enough when an up-and-coming folk/rock group called Blind Man's Bluff is playing a New Year's gig at the Backstreet Ballroom, an historical old building on the outskirts of Los Angeles.
Many years ago, or so it's said, the members of something called the Blood Cult used to hold some sort of bizarre, depraved rituals somewhere deep in the bowels of the old building. It's just an urban legend, of course. It is. Isn't it? Well, no matter. Vince Blaylock, the lead singer with the band, couldn't have cared less about that. A full-fledged hippie, a poster child for the Love Generation, and a rising young rock star, Vince was just thrilled to be playing the Ballroom, the hottest venue in town. Everything was just groovy – until he stepped out back to grab a smoke between sets.
But you know, a dark alley behind an old building in the middle of the night is probably not the best place to hang out... alone. I mean, something's gotta happen and it's probably not going to be good... Right? And you know the ironic thing? His friends used to tell him it would be the cigarettes that would kill him. You're probably guessing that's not what killed him and you'd be right about that. You're probably guessing it was a vampire and you'd be right about that too. I don't think I'm spoiling anything here because it is a vampire story... right? But that's just the beginning of a tale that takes a most unusual turn. You won't see it coming any more than Vince saw it coming. This is a story of a reluctant vampire's revenge. This is a vampire tale with a time travel twist. This is Twilight meets The Twilight Zone.
Ready to get your groove on? Far out!
Come join rocker, Vince Blaylock, as he takes
A Bite Out of Time!
Yours for just 99 cents!

Sunrise on the Pier, a suspenseful, atypical love story, is the tale of 'scary smart' business analyst Gabrielle Winston and how she endangers her life.
First, she predicts the 2008 financial market meltdown - in September 2007. Then she uncovers a rival consortium's plot to use the meltdown to destroy her firm. Gabrielle's findings thrust her into the middle of a war among ruthless, ultra-rich industrialists and escalate that war past intrigue and espionage into murder. Gabrielle expects to find respite in the normalcy of her personal relationships but the facade melts away, revealing that her world had never been what she'd thought it to be. Is it time to fold 'em or should she stay and defend the life she has built for herself?
In the final confrontation Gabrielle has to pull her best bluff to win - and she doesn't even have a poker face. What does Jarin Cole San Chappelle have to do with her situation? Everything...

Thanks for this opportunity to promote my novel, Barracuda.
Recovering from a gunshot wound he’d received while in the line of duty, NYPD Detective Mick O’Shaughnessy is in need of some relaxing time away from the big city. A vacation in the peaceful, scenic Bikini Atoll, a scuba diver’s paradise, could be the panacea to heal his wounded leg as well as his shattered nerves. Then again, maybe it isn’t. The Majestic Resort Hotel, unfortunately, does not turn out to be the bastion of tranquility Mick had hoped to enjoy. Immediately upon arrival, Mick inadvertently finds himself dropped in the middle of an international money laundering operation, a territorial feud between the island natives and the resort developers, and an impending mob war between the Russian Mafia and the Japanese Yakuza. If that weren’t nerve-wracking enough, the many years of nuclear testing that had taken place in Bikini Atoll after World War II have had an unusual effect on the sea life in the lagoon—and the freakishly large mutant barracuda who dwells there perceives all scuba-diving tourists as lunch meat.
Barracuda is a fast-paced story in which international intrigue, environmental catastrophe, and the sense of cultural pride collide. Even on vacation, Mick O’Shaughnessy is a detective at heart, and he refuses to fly away from the chaos in this island paradise until all questions are answered and feelings of safety and justice take over the atoll.
The historical significance of the location and the underwater depictions in Barracuda are well researched, with the story incorporating the history of Bikini Atoll in the years after World War II, authentic scuba-diving knowledge, and proper police procedure into its plot, characters, and scenic detail. Barracuda will be enjoyed by readers who appreciate the aquatic action of Jaws, the mob intrigue of The Godfather, and the police procedural sense of The Onion Field.

I'm used to promoting my books on the amazon kindle forums and kindle boards. But now that my husband bought an IPAD (woo hoo!) and I've got both my books in the IPAD store (double woo hoo!), I'm happy to have found this forum.
I have two novels available for the IPAD. Both have received terrific Amazon reader reviews and both are just $2.99.
In this post, I'll tell you about NEW COASTAL TIMES.
Here's a brief synopsis:
As Hurricane Walter, the worst hurricane ever recorded (at least so far), reshapes the overdeveloped East Central Florida coast, swallows condos up whole, and ushers in a world-wide disaster-filled era spurred by global warming, Mia Gionfreddo Fine crouches in the crumbling newsroom of the (let's face it) crummy newspaper she works for, listening to the publisher sing Broadway show tunes.
Set in the near future (maybe tomorrow), NEW COASTAL TIMES is a seriocomic romp through a not-so-brave new world where religious fanatics wait for Jesus in the Okefenokee Swamp, martial law rules in the still existing cities, and the government sets up free-love communes for displaced youth. There are no zombies (sorry) in this post-apocalyptic tale. But love, laughter, friendship and hope survive as a group of intrepid travelers—including former so-so reporter Mia, her adorable dedicated doctor husband, his avuncular tenor mentor, a good-hearted baritone pimp, and the show-tune-singing publisher (an aging soprano)— make their way from Florida to New York in the New Coastal Times Performing Arts Center van. Because, when you get right down to it, there really is no place like home.

VRIN: ten mortal gods by John Michael Hileman.
Beyond our waking minds, past the infinite dark where only whispers
live, is a secret place of such unimaginable importance that God
Himself has hidden it from us. Until now.
Is Jason Tardin a god? The people of Vrin believe so, and why shouldn't they? After all, he has the power to manipulate the invisible wire structures upon which their world is painted. But, if he IS a god, then why can't he remember? Dreams, virtual reality, and the world between life and death collide in this surreal mystery, where nothing is quite as it seems.
