Spotlight!

THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT has negotiated a Middle East peace now in its fourth year.

THE CHURCH UNIVERSAL has brokered a homogenized world religion.

THE ALLIANCE, an amalgam of society’s most ardent social-justice activists, has grown in power but not fast enough for its leaders.

Into this morass steps TRUTH PUBLISHING AND BROADCASTING, an empire driven by a biblical worldview.

Targeting Truth for destruction, the Alliance turns its foggy innuendoes into murder and mayhem.

Jake MacMillan built the Truth empire out of his own writing, wit and charisma. Between the Alliance and One World Government, Jake has become Target No. 1, leading to personal tragedy that puts him on a deadly precipice.

Darek Field, a young TV-magazine superstar, trades in that lofty power for a place on the Truth team. When Jillian Downs, a striking reporter, marries Darek they become a media sensation … and Target No. 2.

In this world of moral darkness headed toward oblivion, a planet starved for righteous leaders … is Truth enough to save mankind?

The Almaër Dominÿe has risen from the flames …

Damari Kael has been transformed into the Almaër Dominÿe, as was foretold. But with this title, comes the responsibility of a people Damari knows nothing about. She knows only that their country is under attack, and she must go to war against those she once called family.

Clea Jandry has invoked a birthright she did not know belonged to her. In search of the Summer Flower to strengthen her weakening magic, Clea finds herself tested by a king long thought dead.

Far away, in the heart of Sunkai, Gelsey Malaki of the Night Wood attempts to hold the throne against a mounting evil. But Raphaela Kael’s power has increased since she left the Mother City for Kaldon, awakening a darkness which covers all the land in the evil of the Abyss.

In the north, Adlae Sundragon has received a message from the shadows. She now knows her fate and must act. Yet even as loyal men and women gather from across Nfaros to her side, she feels the Abyss growing stronger. Only in the Circle of the Sundragon—only within the crown of flames her family created—will Adlae find the answers to destroy the darkness.

 

A Secret Map to Priceless Treasure, A CIA Analyst Turned Detective

Three people are murdered and one kidnapped to find the solution to the map. As Nicole Phillips seeks to find her kidnapped brother, she doesn’t know whom to trust. No one is who they appear to be. All is deception.

To bring his brother’s murderer to justice, CIA Intel Analyst Josh Baruch puts his life on the line. Can he walk the tightrope between obeying the killers’ instructions and bringing them to justice?

Because Nicole Phillips’s husband died in a mysterious plane crash, she fears falling in love again with a reckless, danger-loving type like her late husband. Josh Baruch, the CIA analyst using her as bait to track her brother’s kidnapper, is just such a risk-taking man. Besides living on the edge, Josh is bitter about women and questions God.

Together they travel through Turkey, attempting to find Nicole's brother. But danger lurks around every corner, in every town. Can they trust the policeman they've been told to liaise with? Who is the mysterious man who appears to have power everywhere? Who is tracking them as they are tracking the kidnappers? Will anyone escape alive? This first book in the CIA Operatives Series has something for everyone.

Six Steps to Publishing

Blogging

#1 Start Building Your Platform

Getting a book published has always been a challenge, but perhaps even more so over the last decade. Publishers assume a lot of risk when signing new authors. Therefore, they are interested in knowing how broad and extensive your platform happens to be.

Writing

#2 Write a Book Worth Reading

Every published author has a story about how they came up with the big idea for their book. Learn from them and look for ways to enter into your own personal creative zone. Be diligent and disciplined when it comes to writing. And most importantly, don't run away from feedback.

Editing Manuscript

#3 Yes! Hire a Skilled Editor

Here's the biggest secret in the publishing industry. Even the bestselling authors have hired editors. In fact, they have teams of people who help them prepare their books for publication. However good you are with your writing skills, you need a second set of eyeballs on your manuscript.

Publishing Agents

#4 Sign with an Agent

Agents are the gatekeepers in the publishing industry. After you write your first book, you'll soon discover that publishers don't want to read it unless your work is recommended by a literary agent. Some agents already have so many clients that they will not receive an unsolicited manuscript.

Publishers

#5 Choose the Best Publisher

Publishers, like ourselves, come in many different shapes and sizes. Some will only consider publishing well-known successful authors, while others are looking for rising stars and voices in the wilderness. If your calling is writing, remember that every author was once unpublished.

Launching a new book

#6 Prepare for Launch

First time authors are usually surprised that it's easier to write a book than it is to prepare for publication and the subsequent marketing campaign. This is the season where you spend every waking hour growing your platform and communicating with your network of adoring fans.
