The Cuckoo Club
by H.E. Joyce

"The Cuckoo club is a warm satisfying tale that's bang in touch with 21st century Britain, an interesting journey into one man's struggle through slighted ambitions, unemployment and disappointment. Tony Lovett is a likeable guy, who loses the job that he thoroughly enjoys through no fault of his own. But Tony is a doer. Rather than sit back and moan about his failure to secure another job in this terrible economic downturn, Tony takes drastic action to get what he wants."

What follows is a captivating adventure with plenty of surprises, involving a beautiful older woman, but to say any more would give away the plot. It's a lively, exciting read, and the warmth of Tony Lovett's personality leads you on to hope that everything works out well for him. I can't give away the ending, this would ruin the story, but it's well worth turning the pages to find out.

"Can't wait to read more of this author's books."

From the author of Miranda's Fortune and The Reaping, this short story has all the twists and turns familiar to his readers.

Tony Lovett's promising career with a large accountancy firm, comes to an abrupt end, and following hundreds of fruitless job applications, he decides on a fresh and radical approach.

But when he receives a mysterious message inviting him to an informal meeting, he finds himself being offered more than employment, and is soon embroiled in a web of intrigue. A life-changing opportunity indeed - but will he take it?

DescriptionJust forty miles south of New Orleans, Goose Island may as well be in another world. Five feet out of the shallow waters of south Louisiana’s wetlands, the secluded island is home of the Tracists Monastery. It’s also a resort frequented by actors, screenwriters, and powerful people in the burgeoning Louisiana film industry. When a horrible death occurs on the island, a movie producer hires Wyatt Thomas, the French Quarter’s favorite sleuth, to find out whom or what killed the victim. Was it wild dogs or a rougarou (Cajun werewolf) as the local voodoo woman tells Wyatt? His own life threatened, he must first survive the killer (or possibly killers), and the deadly hurricane taking direct aim at the monastery. Primal Creatures is the third novel in the Wyatt Thomas French Quarter Mystery Series that includes Big Easy, and City of Spirits.

Walking Away From The King
by
Mike Penny

DescriptionThe change necessary to save the human species and salvage the planet from impending ecological disaster cannot come from the powers that be, who only perpetuate their own ill-fated system. A swell of diverse grassroots movements has arisen to create a very different culture than our contemporary world controlled by corporations and plutocrats. Rather than the status quo with its patriarchal, domineering, and exploitative culture of Empire, these groups favor a truly democratic Global Community, centered on bottom-up ecological revival, gender equality, cooperative action and individual responsibility. Collectively, they have determined they must “walk away from the king,” in preparation for a Grand Transition from contemporary self-destruction to a world of resilience and sustainability.
