How Couples Can Find Happiness Through Date Night

There is one night as a couple that is always OURS. There is a wall protecting this night, which cannot be climbed, moved, altered or broken through.

Without fail, Sunday evening is our date night. Date night always happens in the same place: our kitchen.

Quite frankly, of all our friends, we probably own the ugliest kitchen. The bright red colored walls are hideous. Our countertops are an affront to the concepts of style and good taste. There is no respectable homeless shelter which would accept our ten year old microwave as a donation.

But it doesn’t matter.

It’s difficult to explain why this date is so special. It’s not like there’s a magic Sunday conversation bubble hovering over our kitchen, which makes our talks together more enlightening or stimulating than normal.

Perhaps its because we have Facebook, Twitter, iPads, email, radio, television, cellphones, texts, friends, chores, Read more »

What if you had the perfect life? Imagine being married to a rich, handsome, powerful attorney while living in a beautiful expansive home. Your friends envied you – even wished they were you. To all who knew you, you were living the ultimate American dream. This was Mary Franklin’s life. Meanwhile, hidden behind her smiles was a mountain of sorrows. Secretly, the most horrendous crime that can happen to another human was committed against her. Fear and dread consumed her – taunted her. Her dream life was nothing more than a stage with dark curtains hiding her nightmarish reality.

When Mary discovers that her husband, Roger, was behind the most unspeakable act in her life, it becomes undeniably evident that she can’t stay with him or feel safe even in the same city! In desperation, she assumes a different identity and flees Tucson to a small southern town in Georgia, all while towing her most prized possession in a horse trailer. In Georgia, she finds a simpler existence, yet she faces more challenges than she could have ever imagined.

After the Storm of the Century rips apart New Orleans, Adele Le Moyne and her father are among the first to return to the city following the mandatory evacuation. Adele wants nothing more than for life to return to normal, but with the silent city resembling a mold-infested war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal will have to be redefined.

Mother Nature couldn’t drain the joie de vivre from New Orleans, but the flood waters recede, and the body count continues to rise. Someone or something is draining life from its residents. Events too unnatural – even for New Orleans – lead Adele to an attic that has been sealed for three hundred years, and the chaos she unleashes threatens not only her life but everyone she knows.

Caught suddenly in a hurricane of eighteenth-century myths and monsters, Adele must quickly untangle a web of magic that links the climbing murder rate back to her own ancestors. But who can you trust in a city where everyone has a secret, and where keeping them can be a matter of life and death – unless, that is, you’re immortal.

Author Interview #274: The Pretender: Rebirth

April 23, 2014
By

Our interview today is with Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W Van Sickle, Emmy Nominated writers, producers and/or directors of over two hundred hours of TV programing, and authors of The Pretender: Rebirth (mystery thriller, 4.5 stars, 86 reviews) and the upcoming sequel The Pretender: Saving Luke  (to be released – available April 2014).

Before we get to the interview, here is a brief description of the series.

Written by the creators of the international, cult hit television show, the first two novels in The Pretender book series, Rebirth and Saving Luke, are edge-of-your-seat, mystery thrillers about Jarod, a child prodigy, stolen and raised by a Haliburton-like organization that exploited his gift for their disreputable activities.

After his escape, this ‘ingenious Jason Bourne’ – a human chameleon who can literally become anyone he wants to be – rejoins the world that has been denied him for 30 years. While attempting to find his family, he uses his brilliance as an avenging angel for those being taken advantage of by the powerful among us.

He does this while staying just one step ahead of his nemesis, Miss Parker, the sexiest woman on the planet who is hell bent on tracking him down and returning him to her masters.   Their multifaceted, love/hate relationship, driven by the emotional secrets at the core of who they are, fuels a cunning predator/brilliant prey, chase of epic proportions.

Rebirth and Saving Luke are intricate, suspenseful and enthralling mysteries about one man’s exploration of life and love and the truth that captures and reignites the hit TV series for both loyal fans and new readers alike.

A Family Affair: Summer

Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption. It’s time to head back to Magdalena, New York, and spend a little time with the people we love to love and even a few we love to hate.

Eight years ago, tragedy struck the town’s perfect couple, Daniel “Cash” Casherdon and Tess Carrick, days before their wedding. That tragedy shredded their dreams of a life together and sent them fleeing Magdalena. Now, destiny has brought them back and the town is determined to see this couple mend their differences.

Angelo “Pop” Benito will lead the crusade to march Cash and Tess down the aisle with the help of The Bleeding Hearts Society, a garden group more interested in healing people’s hearts than helping a sick basil plant. But they’re not the only ones cheering for this couple’s second chance.

Who would have thought Nate Desantro would be giving advice on relationships, love, and marriage? But when a man finds the right woman, anything is possible. Add a baby to the mix; well, that’s pure “hero” material. Christine will offer her share of support and wisdom to Tess and stand up to an old troublemaker in the name of family and friendship. Read more on Amazon.

TRU LUUP

Vintage Fashion Girl, Mystery Slayer

Sixteen year old Tru Luup, a shy, smart, vintage clothes geek, found a pin in an antique chest. Upon inspection, she could see it was old. Ok, but she knew nothing about old jewelry. Tru works at a consignment shop called Second Hand Rose after school and she asked the owner for her advice, Mrs. Rose is a fountain of information about vintage clothes and estate jewelry. Tru just didn’t mention that she’s keeping the pin a secret.

The mystery of the pin haunted her. Is it a family heirloom? It’s old, possibly late eighteenth to early nineteenth century, and made in France — tiny gold hallmarks were stamped into the metal. A letter she found in her grandmother’s desk possibly explained the origins of the pin, and the royal hair it might contain. But is the letter real? Could she believe the facts as she found them? They were hard to accept as true — and impossible to ignore.

What if the pin is too valuable to keep secret? There was braided hair in a locket compartment at the back of the pin and it was the same color as Tru’s. Coincidence? What did her grandmother know about the pin, and did she intend for Tru to find it? Read more on Amazon.

Ellen Craft is property; in this case, of her half-sister Debra, to whom she was given as a wedding gift. The illegitimate daughter of a Georgia plantation owner and a house slave, she learned to hate her own image, which so closely resembled that of her “father:” the same wiry build, the same blue eyes, and the same pale—indeed, lily-white—skin.

Ellen lives a solitary life until she falls, unexpectedly, in love with a dark-skinned slave named William Craft, and together they devise a plan to run North. Ellie will pose as a gentleman planter bound for Philadelphia accompanied by his “boy” Will. They make it as far as Baltimore when Will is turned back, and Ellie has no choice but continue. With no way of knowing if he is dead or alive, she resolves to make a second journey—South again. And so Elijah Craft enlists with the 125th Ohio Volunteers of the Union Army: she will literally fight her way back to her husband.

Christian Speculative Fiction: Why do we need it and why you should read it

April 22, 2014

Our guest blogger is Guy Stanton author of A Warrior’s Redemption (4.3 stars on 25 reviews).

Christian Speculative Fiction: Why do we need it and why you should read it

All fiction has power to it. Words both spoken and non-spoken are powerful things. Words among their many uses have the power to enthrall, teach, entertain, and change a person’s viewpoint. Now perhaps we can all agree that the prototypical romance novel plot line or say an Old Western era novel aren’t going to change anyone’s viewpoint on anything. You either love them or hate them for their genre setting. In other words you know what you’re reading before you even start reading. It may come in different flavors, but nothing typically that lies outside your expectations of the genre. This is not so for Speculative Fiction. Speculative Fiction doesn’t prescribe itself to a stereotypical image other than to say that it’s imaginative and you’re never quite sure what direction it will take, which is why it’s both fun to write and to read.

Christian Speculative Fiction is an even rarer bird. Most Christian fiction falls into a very precise stereotype, which I often refer to as “nicey nice”. When you pick up a Christian novel you have a range of expectations of what typically you do not expect to find within the pages of the book. Christian Speculative Fiction is the exact opposite of this perceived stereotype, because while Christian ideals should be maintained, the door is open however for a full host of opportunities and experiences to be perceived Read more »

Sabrina struggles to accept this suicide mission, and is distracted by her inappropriate affection for Micah, a prospect monk.
