"Long Road Out of Ur was rejected by countless publishers and agents because it was "too different" and didn't "fit the formula." This is NOT your mother's Christian novel (although several mothers and grandmothers have enjoyed it): there are no Amish widows in distress rescued by "Englisher" tourists; no lonely schoolteachers drawn to the bad boy despite her mother's warnings; no perfect couples who just quote Scripture to each other whenever a problem arises.

"Long Road Out of Ur" retells the familiar story of the calling of Abraham and Sarah to the Promised Land through the voice of Lot. This is not a Sunday school version of their lives, and they are not alabaster saints. Instead, it's a lively coming-of-age adventure tale crossed with a murder mystery and a heaping helping of social satire. Think of it as something like "Huckleberry Finn" combined with "North by Northwest" but set in the Bronze Age.

Hello. My name is Charles Blanchard. I would like to introduce my latest novel, Kingdom's End, for your pleasure.

Kingdom’s End is an adventure story where the main characters are rodents. The setting is an abandoned motion picture palace from the 1920s that has been closed for thirty years and is set for demolition. It is here where the characters make their massive colony and fight to protect it.

The story deals with their struggle to survive in a dark urban landscape and the threats posed against them from both man and beast. It is exciting and complex and an easy read with strong characters and narrative that makes you feel their plight.

There are many conflicts. Among them, a plot within the colony to overthrow the aged blind leader by an ambitious ruthless soldier and a good deal of the story involves how he goes about it. Later, the plot is discovered as forces work against the perpetrator.

The rodent characters have names. The human characters interspersed in the story are nameless.

There is considerable adventure outside the colony as characters are introduced that play important roles such as the derelict rats that specialize in the placement of poison and even a fortune teller. The interaction with humans and other animals has an emotional pull that infuses the story to its conclusion as the blind leader of the entrapped colony facing the exterminators tells his subjects they must make their decision on life or death.

I have dedicated the novel to Richard Adams, whose animal themed work has been an inspiration.

See my new 5 Star Review of War Merchant: http://bit.ly/1Sy5cDi

Reviewed by Ica Iova for Readers' Favorite

"From the first page to the last, ‭‬War Merchant is a continuous ‬suspenseful thriller.‭ ‬It kept me‭ ‬on the edge of my seat and biting my nails because I just had to know what happens next.‭ ‬This ‬intriguing ‬story ‬is set in the‭ '90s.‭ ‬With interesting, ‭‬believable ‬characters, ‭‬the story ‬flows well, ‭taking ‬you on ‬a roller-coaster ride.‭ ‬Greed, ‬corrupt ‬politics, ‬and terrorism ‬resonate very well with what goes on around the globe."

The Collection is a compilation of short stories and flash fiction. The first story, "Ms. Addie's Place" chronicles the story of Nora, a compelling character with a deep secret, who moves into a boarding house for African American women seeking to better themselves. There she meets Ms. Addie, who runs the house. With a turn of events, her secrets grow, but luckily she has Ms. Addie, who will help her protect her secret at all costs.

Living in the world of underground prostitution and balancing being a high school student is no easy task for the main character in “Kat House.” As she compare her life to her classmates, she draws from only the harsh lifestyle to which she is accustomed. Just when she thinks life could not get any better, she is faced with one last difficulty that just may break her.

These stories and a host of others will keep you turning pages in The Collection. It is available on Kindle and Nook.

FBI agent Timothy McKeene races against time to save thousands of lives after Islamic terrorists uncover a deadly Nazi secret hidden in the forests of Argentina. BEYOND ODESSA offers a fresh spin on the Nazi ODESSA conspiracy implemented in the waning days of the Second World War. It's an old-fashioned good vs. evil story with lots of action and even a little romance. The plot is woven into actual historical events. Reader feedback is very positive with many asking when the movie is coming out. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AZ0LE0A

This is a great book! If you like jules verne, conan doyle etc. you'll like this book, 'The Alien Stone' by Barry Uglow. Classic historical fiction with a modern Alien conspiracy twist. Very well written and knowledgeable author. First in the series of The Adventures of Professor Margrave.

Moon 514: Blaze and the White Griffon is a thriller paced, magic infested, post apocalyptic space opera with uncommon vision. It quickly developed a strong following and has received a strong pattern of enthusiastic reviews.

Myself, pretty independent so being an independent author works. Ralph from Ralph and the Girl From Mayfair Towers, well, he has complexities from the three women in his life while trying to use his mystic gift to solve a mystery. Is he independent; up to you to decide.

In my self-published Novel, Cedric the Demonic Knight:

Known for hunting the supernatural, no mortal man realizes Lord Cedric is one of Sorceress Morrighan’s abominations. After competing in a tournament, he is wed to a Lady of the Court, Angeline. Cedric’s senses begin to overwhelm him and he struggles to decipher his feelings; Are they a creation of his incubine bloodline or truly heartfelt emotions for the girl who has lost it all to him? He finds himself forced to choose between falling in love or continuing his suicidal quest to kill his creator. Epic battles against all manners of beasts and demons fill this story with memorable antagonists such as Morrighan and her two sisters; Romasanta the Father of Werewolves; Succubus Queen Lillith and many more. Find yourself engulfed in lores and history long forgotten from the 12th Century and beyond.
