The Climbing Boy

Mark Lichterman
Paperback


Illegally sold as a ‘climbing boy’ – a chimney sweep’s apprentice – for the pittance of back rent owed on the shack he and his mother had lived in before she died, Zachariah is now nothing more than a slave to his owner, an abusive drunk. His mother dead these past five years, the image of her face fading from his memory, the boy struggles to remember… but now she appears only in deep shadow, even in his dreams.

She is gone. Then, on the day before Christmas in 1843 – the very same mystical Christmas Eve that Scrooge received his three ghostly visitors – the familiar face of a kind woman strikes a deep chord in Zachariah, one that rekindles the memory of his mother, and gives the boy hope for a new and different future.

— “A magical Christmas tale – deserves to become a classic.”

“A dark, but hopeful, riveting look at London society in the 1800s.”

“You’ll fall in love with Zachariah…”

The Light in the Labyrinth

Wendy J. Dunn
Paperback, Kindle


“…a terrific read not just for young adults, but for all ages. Wendy has done a fantastic job bringing to life a young Katherine Carey that anyone who has ever been a teenager can identify with. It was refreshing to see Anne through the eyes of an innocent who had not yet been jaded by the intrigues at Henry’s Court…”

Dear Heart, How Like You This?

Wendy J. Dunn
Paperback, Kindle


This is a new 2017 edition in paperback and Kindle formats.


Dear Heart is a heart-rending tale of love and loss. Narrated by the poet Thomas Wyatt, the reader embarks on a fascinating journey that takes us from the yews of Hever Castle in Kent to the intrigue-laden courts of England, France, and Rome, as Wyatt recalls his desperate, and often helpless, desire for a woman whom he cannot save – the ill-fated Anne Boleyn.

“I love this book and couldn’t get enough of it. Wendy Dunn does a good job of describing the sequence of events that led to Anne Boleyn’s rise and downfall. This book was so well written that one feels as if they were Thomas Wyatt, feeling every emotion he was going through, and the depth of his love for Anne Boleyn. Alot of detail is also given about Thomas Wyatt’s political/court career on the continent. Overall, a very enjoyable and historically accurate read.” – Amazon review.

Becoming

Mark Lichterman
Paperback, Kindle


“Wonderfully well written, Becoming paints a life picture at times through eyes of both humor and disappointment. I was reared in the rural south but this work transcends ethnic and geographic boundaries so that we can easily identify with Mitch, especially in his quest to lose his virginity. Wit and a great sense of humor come through in a style that holds ones attention long after putting down his book…”

For Better or Worse

Mark Lichterman
Paperback, Kindle


Twisting on the seat, the young woman looked at the receding figure, watching the old man as he crossed the street. When he was no longer in view, facing forward, “Did you see that old man back there, the way he looked at us?” As the convertible waited for the red to change to green, the young man did see the old man. When they began to drive, his eyes had flicked nervously to the rearview mirror and back to the busy, early evening traffic of Neptune Avenue. Glancing at the pretty, darkhaired young woman sitting alongside him, “No,” he said. “What old man?”

The Day of the Nefilim

David Major
Paperback, Kindle, epub


“There is nothing more joyous to me than discovering new, raw creativity. David Major, regardless of his hallucinogen(s) of choice, is a rare find and a fun read. With a smidgeon of Douglas Adams he spends all of six pages before rearranging our world with a sledgehammer and sending us down into underground caves, underworld civilizations in a ship that sails the winds of time. While Major hints occasionally at the science and history behind his bizarre story, it almost doesn’t matter as this great book if a delightful fantasy and well worth the read.”
