The Toy Taker by Luke Delaney Book Feature!



    Title: The Toy Taker 
Author: Luke Delaney 
Publisher: Harper 
Genre: Thriller/Suspense 
Format: Kindle/Paperback 

Outside the house, it's cold and dark.

Inside, where it's warm, children are sleeping.

D.I. Sean Corrigan might have a tiny new office at Scotland Yard and a huge new beat—all of London—but the job is the same. His team has a knack for catching the sickest criminals on either side of the Thames, thanks in large part to Corrigan's uncanny ability to place himself inside the mind of a predator.

But he just can't get a read on this new case. Four-year-old George Bridgeman went to sleep in his bedroom in a leafy London suburb . . . and wasn't there in the morning. No tripped alarms. No broken windows. No sign of forced entry or struggle.

As his investigation zeroes in on a suspect, Corrigan's gut tells him it doesn't add up. Then another child is taken. Now someone's toying with Corrigan. And the game is about to turn deadly.

The Red Book by Andrew Barbour Book Blast!

Genre: Science Fiction

This is the culmination of what began on October 6, 2013, at 8:12 a.m. It was to be The Blue Book: The Ultimate Project. In increasing clarity, these books show first the preparation and then the arrival in the first book—which, I freely admit, is not easy to read. But any change that I made, made it nearly impossible to continue until I reversed the change that I had made. It was realised that things had to be effectively translated. This is what led to the creation of The Red Book. So using what I had learned and figured out, I applied the same technique to a digital camera, and the results speak for themselves.

The Shakespeare Conspiracy by Jeffrey Hunter McQuain Book Promo




The Shakespeare ConspiracyTitle: The Shakespeare Conspiracy
Author: Jeffrey Hunter McQuain
Publisher: Telemachus Press
Genre: Fiction/Thriller
Format: Kindle 

What makes a secret worth dying for?

That's what Christopher Klewe, a brash young professor from Virginia, finds out in Jeffrey Hunter McQuain's new thriller "The Shakespeare Conspiracy" when he stumbles upon the most shocking cover-up in literary history.

 On a rainy Halloween at Washington's Kennedy Center, a masked killer brutally stabs Klewe's best friend. Before dying, the victim deliberately drops his raincoat across a puddle and scrawls the letters "SoN" in his own blood.

 Investigating the murder scene, Klewe is joined by Zelda Hart, a married reporter for The New York Times. They learn the victim's ear was severed and find evidence of a 400-year-old secret society. When questioned by police, Klewe reveals the surprising question he's been researching: was Shakespeare black?

 Outside Kennedy Center, they meet a drunken security guard who saw the murder and swears that "Shakespeare did it." Klewe and Zelda grow less skeptical when a figure wearing a Shakespeare mask and wielding an Elizabethan dagger chases them into the Metro subway system toward Maryland.

 After being cornered in a remote Maryland cabin by the killer, the two escape to look for answers at Shakespeare and Company, a famous Paris bookstore, as well as in London's Globe Theater. As they solve each step of the mystery, though, they face new obstacles to overcome and more clues to unravel in their search for the truth.

 Pursued across two continents by murderers, the desperate Klewe and Zelda have only three days to solve the strangest mystery of Renaissance history. The evidence mounts up, drawn from actual anagrams hidden in Shakespeare's own words as well as historically accurate descriptions of Elizabethan paintings and observations made by the playwright's contemporaries.

 Their dangerous journey takes them ultimately to Stratford and the Bard's final resting place. There the words of the playwright's epitaph help thwart the deadly conspiracy. 

Once hailed as "a jaw-dropping premise" by the late columnist William Safire, "The Shakespeare Conspiracy" is the first novel by a published Shakespeare expert. It offers readers the twists of a thrill ride reminiscent of "The Da Vinci Code" as well as that novel's excitement of wondering whether its central secret just might be true. If so, this new thriller has the potential to expose the biggest literary conspiracy of all time, offering a whole new way of looking at the world's greatest writer, William Shakespeare.

ORDER INFORMATION

The Shakespeare Conspiracy is available for purchase at  Amazon and B&N

Defining Intelligence by Dr. Pat Keogh Book Feature!


Title: Defining Intelligence
Author: Dr. Pat Keogh
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Pages: 168
Genre: Education
Format: Ebook/Paperback/Hardcover
Purchase at AMAZON

 It may be unethical for a person to conduct an intelligence assessment on another human being. Human intelligence is unquantifiable. Observing or analysing behaviour, appearance, personality, beliefs or acquired knowledge cannot produce a quantifiable measure of a person’s intelligence. The brain can perform millions of billions of calculations per second. This gives the person enormous power and incalculable potential. Yet, saying ‘I use my brain to think’ awards the ‘I’ (the mind) a priority over the brain. We are thinking beings. We are compelled and condemned to think. Thinking is process. We cannot analyse thinking but we can analyse thoughts and ideas, the products of thinking. The mind can reflect on the past, live in the present and plan for the future. Intelligence involves abstract, purposeful, logical thinking and the ability to create and execute ideas. It also includes unconscious thinking. The mind functions best when the body is at rests. The mind never sleeps. The ‘Bru na Boinne’ megalithic burial tombs in County Meath, particularly New Grange testify to the brilliance in observation, the thoughtful archectual planning and the masterful engineering execution of ideas and plans by our Neolithic ancestors of five thousand years ago. Modern day communication technology air and spacecraft are contemporary testimonials to human genius. Primary education should allow time in the curriculum for students to daydream purposefully. In early schooling greater emphasis should be placed on creativity, music composition, innovation and artistic pursuits.

   amazon  

Pat Keogh is principal teacher in a large Dublin suburban primary school. He is a staunch advocate of child-centred education. He has had numerous articles published in the Irish Primary Teacher’s journal ‘In Touch’, The Irish Times newspaper and in 'Leadership', an Irish Primary Principal’s magazine. Pat has a master’s degree in philosophy and a doctorate in education. His doctoral thesis is entitled: ‘THINKING CRITICALLY’. He is keenly interested in the incredible calculating ability of the human brain and the illusiveness and ingenuity of the mind. He believes that the creative mind operates best when the body is at rest.

Interview with Tito Capaldo, author of The Rabbit Culture


Title: The Rabbit Culture
Author: Tito Capaldo
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Pages: 200
Genre: Family/Relationship
Format: Kindle/Paperback

 Direct and vivid in its telling of the details of the adoption of a 7-year old boy from Romania after the collapse of Communism, the novel manages ultimately to deliver much more. Despite this story, I have been very lucky in my life …

I had two wonderful parents, who, in their simplicity they taught me to love and respect Nature and its Laws. I have had satisfactory work experience both economically and professionally, first as a military pilot in the Italian Air Force, and now as a Fire fighting Pilot for the Civil Defence . I am not rich, but I can not complain ..

I have everything I need. If you have the adventure to stumble upon this book and buy it, you can be sure that every cent will be used for the survival of the protagonist, my adoptive son ,when I’m gone.      
What part of the writing process is the easiest/hardest? 

If you have a clear idea of what you want to convey, everything is easy. Being myself  Italian, the most difficult thing is the translation of the book from Italian to English!

What is your writing environment like? 

When you have an idea, every place is OK.

What are some of the best tools available today for writers? 

Same as always .... a pen to write!

What inspires you to write? 

Share the story of the adoption of my son with people. To share my opinions and my thoughts with people. I'm not a professional writer, and for once, I want to be presumptuous ... in the last chapter of my book, there is a sentence that will become a milestone of this century!

.. If we do not get over the “reveal truth myth” we will be unable to establish any “shared rule”. To ordinary mortals hell is the inability to use the tools God gave us to live a full life (with our body and mind) based on mutual respect.

Did you learn anything while writing this book? 

Yes, the only law that we are allowed to know is The “Natural Order of Things”! The human animal, believed to be very intelligent,but it is actually a slave of the worst kind : a mental slave of spiritual leaders, whether they are Catholics, Jews or Muslims, who presume to possess the Revealed Truth. With his behavior, and without a serious policy of birth control, is causing serious problems that future generations will pay dearly.

What is your favorite quality about yourself? 

I am a layman, tolerant, down-to-earth, mentally free, that thinks positive: I do not need Fables told by the prophets to honor the idea of a God.


 Antonio Capaldo was born at Campo di Giove (AQ) on 14thJuly 1948. Authentic mountaineer, he spent his adolescence in close contact with nature in a mainly agricultural and pastoral farming environment at the foot of the Majella massif. After high school he passed the admission course and joined the Air Force Academy, then he obtained the license as military pilot at USAF Air Force School in the US. He served as an Air Force Pilot on C-130 aircraft at Pisa Air Base for 19 years. He had the opportunity to travel around the world and carry out several humanitarian missions. Then he was transferred to Latina Flight School where he worked as an instructor and flight examiner where he held the position of Group commander. After a 2-year service for the Major Staf (Italian Air Force) he went on leave.
