Enter the world of Arcadia and read a spell-binding sci-fi adventure.
The author of this exciting science-fiction story, Andrew R.
Williams’ ‘day job’ is a Chartered
surveyor, however, by night this mild-mannered English author can be seen with
his wife Geraldine staring up at the sky, watching the stars, and plotting his
exciting space adventures.
Pushley’s Escape is the third book in the Arcadia’s Children
series and from the very first page, the reader is hooked. As in the previous
two books, the main characters are Mick Tarmy, Claire Hyndman, and Nonie Tomio.
We learn that Ed Pushley is an archaeologist whose mind has been taken over by
a spettro Mick Tarmy nicknamed Irrelevant. However Irrelevant has died and
their minds have fused giving Ed Pushley incredible psychic powers.
Pushley has been taken captive by Alton Mygael and
desperately wants to escape, and with determination, he manages to free himself
from the isolation helmet. However, once free a high priest appears and announces
that the Great Ones want to speak to him. These are the same beings who had
condemned Irrelevant to death in the past and understandably Irrelevant’s soul
is indignant. He gets Pushley to ask, why a slave now free would want to go
back into bondage. The cleric’s response
is to explain that the Great Ones want to offer a genuine partnership, and he
then goes on to remind him of a past event, and show him images. What will Pushley
do, and what will his future hold? To tell you more would spoil the story…
This author’s imagination is beyond belief, he weaves a
clever story and takes his readers on an exciting adventure as they find
themselves in another world. A world which comes alive for them through his
amazing penmanship which paints vivid scenes, exciting scenarios, and wonderful

A comprehensive look at the healthcare system by a trusted professional.
Alejandro Badia, M.D., F.A.C.S. was born in Cuba and came to
the United States with his parents in 1962. His passion for medicine is in his
genes, and at a very early age, he realized it was the career for him. He
studied physiology at Cornell and attained his medical degree at New York
University, where he also trained in orthopedics. He is co-founder of the world-renowned
Miami Anatomical Research Center (M.A.R.C) the world’s largest surgical
cadaveric training lab. He then went on to completed the Badia Hand to Shoulder
Center, a fully integrated clinical facility for the upper limb also
encompassing the Surgery Center at Doral, rehabilitation, and an MRI imaging
facility, and then he inaugurated OrthoNOW®, the first walk-in orthopedic care
center in South Florida, which later became an officially licensed system. As
well as incredible achievements in medical care he has studied, lectured, and
taught in many countries, and has also written multiple scientific articles and
book chapters in the field of small joint arthroscopy.
The author wrote this book because he passionately believes
that the key participants in every healthcare transaction deserve a voice, and
this is just what this book does. With such a vast experience, not only in his
chosen field but also of others linked to it, the author provides his reader
with in-depth information on every aspect of the healthcare system. In giving
voice to so many medical professionals, and patients who share their stories on
its pages, he hopes to educate others and hopefully encourage discussions to
take place so that solutions can be found to restore the health system and go
forward positively in the future.
As a layperson, I found the whole book fascinating. Like
most people I look up to doctors and specialists with respect and admiration
for the wonderful things, they achieve on a day to day basis. However, the
author has done a wonderful job of allowing his reader to glimpse
fly-on-the-wall like behind the scenes into the Doctor’s Lounge, the offices,
committees, and careers of health professionals and the challenges they face. Through
it, I learned so much and realized that the general public, on the whole, has
no concept of how long hours medical professionals work, and how much paperwork
and collaboration with other professionals goes on behind the scenes.
He is not shy in saying what he feels is necessary whatever
the topic. The influences politics have in healthcare, hidden agendas, the
workings of the health insurance companies, all are examined frankly and he
offers solutions backed with solid reasoning.
Nearing the completion of this book the COVID pandemic hit the
world, and its effects on the United States healthcare system and its impact on
the patients and workers are discussed, and of course, this is an ongoing
problem. He also examines the roles of regenerative medicine, and the
anti-aging industry and with these, as other branches of the industry, he
stresses the importance of comprehensive research when looking for a healthcare
professional, and indicates factors which should be a priority.
This book makes fascinating and extremely interesting reading. It contains volumes of information and solid reasoning backed up by facts and examples. Highly recommended!

An incredible time travel adventure based on historical events and conspiracy.
This book, like it’s prequel Bad Love Strikes, takes the
phrase “getting into a book” to a whole new dimension as the author provides
his readers with an excellent playlist to listen to, linked to the events in
the book, wonderfully enhancing this exciting time travel adventure.
During the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the “White
Hole Project” was conceived and built.
This project is a time machine and it is housed in a top-secret deep
underground bunker. Its location is adjacent to the K-25 project building, more
commonly known as the Manhattan Project, the place where the world’s first
nuclear bomb was built.
In Bad Love Strikes a teenage gang of the same name,
discover the project and undergo a time travel mission to rescue Holocaust
victims in 1944 Poland This story begins just after they have returned from
their first adventure, and the gang is assembled at the White Hole Project to
celebrate New Year’s Eve 1975. The music is playing, and none of them suspect
that at the stroke of midnight the room would be plunged into darkness and they
would be attacked by a Russian KGB agent intent on discovering the project’s
However, the agent is no match for the gang. But worryingly
they realize that the incident raises the issue of possible infiltration into
governmental secrets possibly going back as much as 30 years. So, they decide
to go back in time to talk to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who conceived
the White Hole Project, and they knew from their previous mission. When they
arrive on April 12th, 1945 they receive a warm welcome from the
president, at his cottage, the Little White House, adjacent to Warm Springs,
At the meeting the gang give the president a little insight
into future world events, but also discover that Russian, Chinese and Indian
spies have infiltrated the project and he worries that the secrets are being
stolen. President Roosevelt charges them with the task of defending the
integrity and the future of not only the White Hole Project, but also
top-secret Area 51 against all enemies both foreign and domestic, and gives
them a new mission, code naming the undertaking the “Denver Project.”
To accomplish their mission, they must go back in time to June
1942, and deliver a note directly from the president to the trusted General
Claire Chennault who commands the Flying Tigers in China. The president informs
them that all the resources they need will be available to them, however, the
venture entails a dangerous road trip across 1945 WWII America to Area 51, and incredibly
the opportunity for the four members of the newly formed Panda Bear Flying
Tigers to pilot P-40 Warhawks and take part in a truly out of this world
In conclusion: This new adventure of the Bad Love Gang is mind-blowing, the talented author takes his readers on an incredible rollercoaster of an adventure which intermingles true historical facts and incredible moments in the past, with conspiracy theories and science fiction. Not forgetting of course that throughout there’s a sprinkling of romance, heaps of comradeship, and that all- important patriotic duty, all carried out whilst maintaining the gang’s motto “Live dangerously, have fun, don’t die!”

An entertaining, witty political story, you just won’t want to put down!
An entertaining, witty political story, you just won’t want
to put down!
I love Paddy Bostock’s witty writing style and this new book
is a classic example of a clever political novel with a great plot, excellent
characters, and plenty of twists and turns. The author’s brilliantly descriptive
writing enables him to treat his readers to wonderful scenes, and stage
incredibly funny incidents, making this another unforgettable winning story.
Retired MI6 agent Mervyn Iain Vincent, has a lot on his
mind, so much indeed that mundane household maintenance just doesn’t get done,
after all as a fervent greenie his days are preoccupied with global politics,
the extinction of the human race and the deceitful and misleading buffoons in
critical power positions throughout the world.
However, in amongst the scamming and threatening telephone
calls he receives, despite being ex-directory, an intriguing call from a Lizzie
Leah. Not only does she call him by his (alias) name Doctor Vincent, a name he
uses at the moment because of an old Oxford doctorate in forensic anthropology,
but she has lost her ‘husband’ Leo Mc Guire, and wants him to use his ‘private
eye’ skills in locating him.
Well, as it turns out, Mervyn actually remembers Leo or Leon
Devin as he was known to MI6, as a rookie agent drummed out of the service for
bad behaviour and endangering national security. Now he begins to understand
how Leo could have really ‘poof’ disappeared from sight. Indeed the son of Svetlana,
an ex-secretary in Gorbachev’s Kremlin, and Sir Montmorency Devine who fled to
the UK and now lives a life of privilege is actually in America, on Fifth
Avenue enjoying the hospitality of Hal Schornstein, a key player in the loony
incumbent’s 2020 presidential re-election campaign and a linchpin for the
continuance and growth of populist unrest throughout Europe. There Leon’s heavy
involvement in these right-wing activities affords this gigolo with a dangerous
and busy, if complicated life.
However, when his young sister Taya requests a meeting it
soon becomes evident that this misguided young man needs to be reformed, but
how will they do that? Well, you will have to read the book to discover the
answer to that question.

About the Book:
Appointed by Lizzie Leah to locate her lost lover, whom she knows by the name of Leo McGuire, PI (and ex-spy) Mervyn Vincent discovers that the object of his quest is not only a gigolo with a harem of “Mrs McGuires” across the continents, but also a valuable player (real name Leon Devine) in an international right-wing cartel. Realizing that there’s more to Leon than meets the eye, Mervyn joins forces with his sister Taya, and Lizzie to reform the young man and channel his abilities into worthier causes, thereby impacting, albeit modestly, the global power machinery.
Griffin’s Perch is an epic fantasy which will transport you
to another world, a world where anything is possible, and unimaginable
creatures from mythology, and fantasy come alive before your very eyes.
The author in this incredible epic adventure transports his
readers into an amazing fantasy world where the last two remaining members of
the Silver Order Denrael of Gesthamin, and Aqua find themselves teaming up with
Shala and Flinch two ferocious Delphen (a fox-like race, honorable and duty-bound)
warriors in a frantic battle to save the world from the evil wizard Daniel and
his fire breathing dragons.
Daniel is the opposite of calm and rational Denrael. He is the
wizard of the Dark Wood, and it is his arrogance and vehement belief that he is
better than Denrael that led him to commit a terrible deed, betraying the
Silver Order of Wizards and transforming them into dragons.
Who can stop Daniel and his dragons, or will the world fall
to them? To stand a chance of winning, the magical creatures discover that they
must unite, putting aside old grievances, and only then with the help of the
mighty Griffin Corps can they possibly stand a chance of winning this epic
Lovers of the fantasy genre will find many of their favourite
creatures in this world, each with their own stories and important parts to
play in making this an outstanding fantasy adventure. There are nasty little
gargoyles, and black fairies with lots of tiny teeth, trolls, elves and pixies.
Yet one of the most dangerous are the Darksiders. These century-old beings take
over the bodies of other creatures, and live their lives, aware yet dormant in
their chosen shell, absorbing information, plotting and then striking when the
time is right.
Full of unexpected twists and turns, this story is truly
outstanding. Ian Conner with his incredibly descriptive writing emerges his
readers into a truly magical fantasy world and, as the story evolves as a
reader you find yourselves consumed by the battle of good versus evil. The
characters and settings come alive and enable the sort of total escapism only
seen before in the works of the immortal J. R. R. Tolkien. Highly recommended!
A wonderful coming-of-age adventure set in the summer of 1980.
After reading ‘Remember the Future,’ I couldn’t wait to
download this latest book by this talented author. This excellent story is set
in Texas where the author was born and raised. In it, Bryant Delafosse who holds
a degree from the University of Texas at Austin and is a screenwriter, now
living in Southern California, takes his readers on the coming-of-age journey
of Neil Thibodeaux which takes place through the summer of 1980.
Neil lives with his short-tempered dad and bully of an older
brother in Houston Texas, however, the day our adventure begins is Monday 5th
May, memorable, not only because it is Neil’s 17th birthday, but also because
it is the day he is being torn from his friends and everything he knows to move
across state and live in Philton, in his words, the ‘butt-crack’ of the State
At his new job (the cause for the move) Neil’s dad has found
him work, however, Neil has other ideas and finds himself a job working in the
local movie theatre, the Lone Star Six. He is interviewed by a jaw-dropping
beauty Cecilia, or CC as she is known, and instantly Neil has a crush on her.
However love seldom comes easy and is sometimes not reciprocated, so Neil can
only look on and hope his time will come, whilst enjoying his new friends and
work colleagues at the theatre.
And so the summer begins. At home, things have never been
the same since the death of his mom. His father and the two brothers are both
struggling to cope with the loss in their own ways. Jake is off the rails,
angry and resentful, and sibling rivalry is strong, making life hard, and even
more stressful for their hard-working dad.
However, this is the summer of 1980, a summer of great music
like AC/DC’s Highway to Hell, and incredible films including the much
anticipated new box office hit, which is now considered the best Star Wars
movie of all time, The Empire Strikes Back. When it arrives in Philton it
causes a stir and the theatre has record sales. Neil is loving his job and has
been promoted to the projectionist, and the author uses his own memories of
working as a movie projectionist to add special touches to Neil’s experiences
in the story. I challenge anyone who was alive in 1980 not to be transported
back in time by their own wonderful memories this story evokes.
Like any teenager, Neil dreams of driving, and owning his
own car, getting a girl and having fun, however these things are not always
easy or straightforward to achieve. Yet through the authors wonderfully
descriptive writing, we join Neil on the rollercoaster of life lessons which he
learns that summer. Whether it is harsh realities, loves found and lost,
friendships, or dreams, we spend this summer with him having fun, laughing and
crying with him as his future begins to unfold, and starts to reveal the
opportunities to come…
A wonderfully nostalgic coming of age story, written sensitively and in a thought-provoking way by this talented author.

About the Book:
What was it like to work at a small-town Texas movie theater in the summer of 1980? For seventeen-year-old Neil, it meant his first job, his first love, and the release of the most anticipated movie of his lifetime, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. He never counted on meeting the girl of his dreams or that she would become his boss. But if he was ever going to have a shot at an older woman, he would need a car, some spending cash, and the respect of the guys in the projection booth of the Lone Star Six.
Essential reading for those considering egg and embryo donation.
Marna Gatlin became a patient of John S. Hesla MD in 1999
when she attended ORM Fertility. He was immediately impressed with her
intelligence, warmth, thoughtfulness, and candor. Marna has since founded a
large non-profit making organization, Parents via Egg Donation (PVED) which has
for many years become an important source of information for people who want to
become parents via egg donation.
Carole LieberWilkins became one of the first women in the
world to become a mother through egg donation. She is a licensed marriage and
family therapist at a private practice in Los Angeles, she is a specialist in
the field of reproductive medicine, and family building options. She is PVED’s
Mental Health Director and was a founding member of Resolve of Greater Los
Angeles in 1987.
In the last 30 years the process of egg donation has changed
a lot, and the reasons for needing egg donation are many. Marna Gatlin and Carole
LieberWilkins the co-authors of this book, call upon their own experience, and those
of others to provide their readers with an essential resource which explains
the journey ‘real families’ experiences when building a family built through
egg and embryo donation.
Within its pages the processes are explained and true
accounts given by those who have used this process. Questions are answered,
fears calmed and doubts expressed, allowing the reader to fully understand that
they are not alone, others have been through the experience. I really love the
quote from Marna which says “Don’t get
too hung up emotionally regarding your egg donor selection because at the end
of the day, the baby you have is the baby you were meant to have.”
There are no subjects glazed over in this frank, honest,
no-holds-barred book. I had to smile at the questions asked, especially about
hair color, simply because my sister comes from a family who all have blue or
grey eyes and yet hers are dark brown. These things don’t matter, and shouldn’t
be worried about, having a happy healthy child is all that matters.
Uniquely, this is the first book which provides its readers
with age-appropriate scripts to allay the fears of parents about how to talk to
their children and explain the special way they were conceived. There is also a
list of resources which contains organizations and books which you may wish to
In summary: This book is an essential resource for those who are considering building a family through egg and embryo donation. Highly recommended!

An exciting Wild West adventure, which you won’t be able to put down!
In this exciting Wild West adventure, Joe Corso displays his
incredible writing ability to the full, as he brings to his readers the life,
sights, and sounds of the Wild West.
His protagonist is Brazos Kane, a gun shark who at the
beginning of this adventure learns of the death of his uncle, Texas Jack Kane, the
man who has taught him all he knows. Immediately he leaves for Kansas City to
attend his funeral and settle his affairs. However, Bazos is very aware that he
is wanted in various jurisdictions, and so, before leaving he takes a quick
trip to the barbers to change his appearance.
His uncle, who was once known as Killer Jack Kane, was in
later years known as the best trickshot artist in the world and traveled with
circuses and sideshows showing off his talent. Brazos was very delighted to
discover that he had been willed his beautiful leather conch-embossed gun-belt
with two ivory-handled 45-caliber 1st generation single action Colt 1873s,
which his uncle used when he performed, his handsome painted horse Wizard, and
However, there was also another legacy which his uncle had
handed down to him, a commission which he had taken on, but unfortunately, he
had died before it he could fulfil it.
It is to facilitate the safe passage of Amanda Collins. She
is the niece of the owner of the Grand Hotel in town, and having spent the
summer visiting with her aunt and uncle, she now needs to return to her home in
North Dakota. Her father, Governor Collins wants someone to get her home safe.
Bazos accepts the commission and is pleased to discover that
Amanda is not only a beautiful young woman but also a good rider. Saddled up they
begin their adventure, however, it isn’t long into their journey before Bazos
realizes that they are being followed. When it happens again shortly after, a
shocking revelation from Amanda unveils the reason why. Suddenly the stakes are
so much higher! Not only are they traveling through dangerous Indian
territories where the natives are keen to kill the white man who has invaded
their lands, but also interested parties are pursuing them for an entirely
Throughout this exciting story, the hard lives of the early
settlers is clearly portrayed, along with the utter disrespect for life, at a
time when people took what they wanted and killed indiscriminately anyone in
their way. However, in the telling of this story the strength, fortitude, and
comradeship which also developed can be seen as Brazos and Amanda unite with a
wagon train and are joined by other cowboys as the follow their intrepid trail
to North Dakota. Through this story, those of us who have never visited this
vast country truly get a flavor of the courage and fortitude of these settlers
who despite all odds managed to stand their ground against the natives, build
towns, and railways, and establish methods of communication.
This book has so many facets, it is an excellent Wild West adventure, it portrays the history and lives of the people in those times, and it is also a romance, with twists and turns which will keep you guessing until the very last page.

A portion of Rabia Tanveer’s December 2015 Reader’s Favorite 5 Star Review of the “Time Traveler” follows.
“I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about this novel. However, I could not help myself, I had to read it. I’ve heard great things about Joe Corso and the way he writes, so I thought this would be the perfect time to start a novel and see what he’s got. And you know what? I was so into this story that I did not even realize that I was almost halfway done. It was interesting and very refreshing. It was so good that I started to re-read it immediately after I finished it. Huge thumbs up for Mr. Corso for writing such a great story.”

A not to be missed irreverent look at the lives and times of Donald Trump by Preston Coleman the King of Satire!
Preston Coleman, the author of this extremely witty book is a professor of communication with a doctorate in media studies. Anyone reading this clever story will not be surprised that he has won awards for his teaching, research, and satire.
At a time when many Americans, and indeed the rest of the world are frustrated and concerned about the words and actions of Donald Trump, through this clever work of historical fiction, the author gives his readers a satirical look at the life and times of this egotistical world leader.
The recent discovery of a previously unknown gospel in the basement of a Russian Orthodox church in Weehawken, New Jersey, written by Donald of Gaul has opened the eyes of the world in a revolutionary new way.
In this gospel, Donald Trump is Donald of Gaul, a wealthy entrepreneur with a hospitality empire. Forward-thinking he is always looking for new talent and acts, and having seen John the Baptist baptize Jesus he thinks they are magicians of the best caliber and admires their ability to draw crowds, just what he is looking for! And so the story continues bringing forth from me a stream of giggles as I read this talented author’s work.
With Donald of Gaul taking us through the four gospels, the New Testament, and the history of Rome from Julius Caesar to Nero, in his own unique ‘business speak’ he gives his reader his tongue in cheek take on the holy book and the teachings of its prophets.
Whilst the Lost Gospel of Donald is an extremely entertaining, ingenious work of fiction, it also, at the turn of every page, give its readers an interesting wealth of discussion topics, and copious material for debate. With clever comparisons, the author has highlighted some of the terrible career decisions which Donald Trump has made, and which have caused untold frustration to many people both in America and throughout the world.
In Conclusion: This irreverent, clever and witty book is just what we need! It sums up the worrying mind and makeup of this current world leader precisely, and I think it will become a classic, and afford talking points for years to come.
About the Author:
Professor of love, master of satire, expert fingerer of guitar strings and more!
Big heart, huge forehead, enlarged prostate–truly the total package.
Preston Coleman has been busy being born since 1961. He enjoyed an idyllic childhood in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, then suffered through a difficult adolescence that lasted 25 years.
By age 37, Coleman had earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism from the University of Georgia and a doctorate in media studies from the University of Iowa. In addition to teaching and conducting research, he wrote local newspaper columns and a series of political satires including:
Kingdoms of Paper and Glass The Tennessee Leprechaun The Oinky Boinky Machine Elmo Frumpkin and Those Arkansaw Bumkins.
These were published by his own Piccolo Press, so named (without irony) because it was small, but shrill. Rarely have an author and publisher shared such love and admiration. The end result was the creation of a personal library of over 1000 volumes, more than half of which Coleman wrote himself.
In the late 1990s, Coleman made the difficult transition from adolescence to middle age, and, at the beginning of the 21st Century, a second wrenching transition from local print media to the global Digital Age. He wrote and published realstupidnews.com, a news satire site that “s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d the truth, so you get more!” and newsprism.com, a news portal that ranked 500 news sites based on quality and orientation.
He was the official announcer and a performer at the 2004 Libertarian National Convention in Atlanta.
A vagabond professor of communication, Dr. Coleman has taught at numerous colleges and universities including the University of Iowa, Kennesaw State University, American Intercontinental University, Gainesville State College, the University of North Georgia, and Chesapeake College.
He’s won various awards including:
The Robert Bostrum Award for Outstanding Research The Ann Matthews Purdy Award for Outstanding Faculty The NISOD Excellence Award Best Overall Satire, thesatireawards.com Player of the Decade (1970s), Atlanta Colt Youth Association, 78-pound division
In 2020, Coleman resumed his writing career with the publication of The Lost Gospel of Donald and a compilation of previous work, Those Arkansaw Bumkins with The Oinky Boinky Machine and Elmo Frumpkin. He’s begun a new work, TBA, as he enjoys a quiet life on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with his wife, dogs, guitar, and kayak, in that order.
