    ImaginePublicity on Air: Greg Hickey and The Friar's Lantern

    in Books

    THE FRIAR'S LANTERN - Greg Hickey
    You may win $1,000,000. You will judge a man of murder. An eccentric scientist tells you he can read your mind and offers to prove it in a high-stakes wager. A respected college professor exacts impassioned, heat-of-the-moment revenge on his wife's killer—a week after her death—and you're on the jury. Take a Turing test with a twist, discover how your future choices might influence the past, and try your luck at Three Card Monte. And while you weigh chance, superstition, destiny, intuition and logic in making your decisions, ask yourself: are you responsible for your actions at all? So choose wisely—if you can.
    *************
    Greg Hickey is a former international professional baseball player and current forensic scientist, endurance athlete, author and screenwriter. His debut novel, Our Dried Voices, was a finalist for Foreword Reviews' INDIES Science Fiction Book of the Year Award. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Lindsay.

    Book Lights radio with Lisa Kessler presents Author Shannon Rogers

    in Books

    Shannon Rogers has finished many novels, but after taking some time off, she connected with talented and prolific author, and friend, (C.G. Mosley), who had begun a sci-fi space opera trilogy who came up with the brilliant notion that Shannon could finish writing the rest of the story, and before she could blink, she was signing her first publishing contract for her co-authored book, scifi space story titled Star Cruiser Titan 2: The Abandoned Secret. ?When not writing, Shannon is reading, dancing, singing loudly in her car, playing with her dogs, obsessively watching makeup tutorials, song reactions, and dance choreography videos on YouTube, and searching Spotify and Pandora for the next brilliant artist and songs which she will then run around and shove in her friends' faces, demanding they listen and love it. Shannon lives in Nashville, TN with her husband and furbabies, while butting into the lives of her adult son and daughter who tolerate it with exasperated sighs but genuine love. Oh, and she gets to spoil two grandbabies. What more could you want? You can find out more at her website: https://www.shannonrogersauthor.com/

    Author Melanie Cossey Joins Host Susan Wingate on Dialogue!

    in Books

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR
    As a child, Melanie Cossey delighted in reading stories that left her feeling disturbed, like Shirley Jackson's The Lottery, and Poe's The Telltale Heart. Her love of the Victorian period combined with her penchant for impactful, unsettling stories nurtured her desire to create troubling tales of gothic horror. Melanie's short, The Nymphalidae won Honorable Mention in the Storm Crow Tavern's 2015 Tales from Beermat Microfiction Contest. Her short fiction has been shortlisted in numerous contests. Melanie's gothic horror, A Peculiar Curiosity, was released on October 26, 2018 by Fitzroy Books. She is a member of the Horror Writer's Association.
    ABOUT THE BOOK - A PECULIAR CURIOSITY
    Anthropology professor Duncan Clarke must get a handle on his anxiety disorder by the end of Christmas break, or risk losing the position to which he has tirelessly devoted himself for decades. When Clarke intercepts a box of macabre curiosities, he discovers a travel journal from 1865 containing frantic scribblings of Edward Walker--an eccentric Victorian curiosity dealer. Tucked within the journal is a disturbing drawing of a young boy, "Specimen Z", the apparent victim of a Haitian Vodou witch doctor. Desperate to salvage his professional career and discover the fate of the mysterious boy, Clarke follows gruesome clues left within his predecessor's relic collection and discovers a dark secret Walker kept in his basement and a connection to the brutal crimes terrorizing London. Clarke's holiday pastime becomes an all-consuming obsession as he begins to understand the chilling implications of the journal and the horror that ties his fate to Walker's-for Clarke will stop at nothing to discover the truth, even at the cost of his career, his family, and his very life.

    Autistior Earning Hundreds of Thousands Through Her Amazon Bus

    in Books

    Autistic High School Senior Earning Hundreds of Thousands Through Her Amazon Business Atlanta, Georgia… At 19-years-old, Yamisha Young has already paid for mother-daughter trips to exotic locations such as the Maldives, brought herself a five-bedroom home, two cars and has a business that earned her $23k in one weekend. She has done all of this while trying to overcome a mental breakdown of finding out her last year in high school. As a senior, 2020 was supposed to be memorable. She is also a functional autistic. School is her only social life outside of Young’s family time. She loved school and enjoyed being around other teens just like her. But with the COVID-19 virus, she and other members of the class of 2020 have watched their rights of passage vanish. “My child is wonderfully special,” admits her mother Yassin Hall. “Our family is special. We’ve had some things that would make other families fall apart but honestly, it drove us to make changes so that we wouldn’t pay the ultimate price.” Hall is talking about her own traumatic childhood that included a mother who was a violent bipolar schizophrenic. After decades of advocating for the government to do more for those with mental illness, in January 2020, Hall was ecstatic to see that there would be legislative changes such individuals in the US Virgin Islands where she is from. She is also the author of “Journey Untold” and “Beyond The Love Curse” which have remained on Amazon’s bestseller lists for five consecutive years and are now on some Georgia school curriculums. Now an Atlanta area resident, Hall helped her daughter create her own career by establishing Amazon stores and fulfilling customer needs with basics with everyday household items such as various snacks, Ramen noodles and toilet paper. On their trip to The Maldives in 2019, the duo reflected on how they used to struggle as a single mother and daughter and thought to create a care kit to add to their inventory.
