No one knows the value of keeping a secret more than former high school prom king Doug Ward. But after washing the past twenty years down with a smooth glass of whisky, Doug's steely resolve has started to crack. And he doesn't want to keep quiet--not anymore. 

For Private Investigator Sloane Monroe, her high school reunion cruise has been nothing more than a mundane reminder of why she hasn't returned to her hometown after all these years. Not much has changed, until Doug Ward goes missing. When dried blood is found on the deck where Doug was last seen, Sloane finesses her way into the surveillance room. There, on a small screen in black and white, she sees an image she'll never forget: Doug being stabbed repeatedly, then heaved over the railing of the cruise ship, his body plunging into the icy depths below. 

The reunion cruise ends, but before Sloane can book a plane ride to her past, another former classmate is murdered. In a town where it seems everyone is harboring a secret, how many more will die before Sloane uncovers the biggest secret of all?

Ten years ago, Noah Chance lost everything: his son, his wife, his career. Since then, he has been sinking deeper into alcoholism and self-destructive behavior, picking fights he cannot win. Just when he’s down and almost out, the phone rings....

Ann Walsh lies dead on her dining room floor and all fingers point to her estranged husband, Lt. Owen Walsh, LAPD. Brought in to establish a credible alibi for Walsh, Chance promises only one thing: to chase down all leads until he discovers the truth. What he finds will place his life in danger, test both his tenacity and his integrity, and give Chance a chance, at last, to escape his private hell.

PROGENETER I Immortality: the Quest

Rating - G

Free until 3 February 2013
The reclusive order of warrior Mayan monks protected the crystal skull for 5,000 years, but now, in 2013, its secret is out, and the price of failure may be billions of lives. Action, adventure, romance, danger, and important life issues abound in this first of the two-book set that asks: What would you do to live for 250 years? Some would spend every cent they have, others would kill...tripled lifespans sound fantastic, but being virtually immortal would doom an already overpopulated planet: 10 billion people by 2050 says the UN: apocalypse! This is what the tiny tribe of Mayans living in the Grand Canyon have to stop.

PROGENETER Immortality: the Quest and PROGENETER II: Immortality Endgame, comprise an action-packed 213,000-word (700-paper-back pages) suspense saga that spans centuries, from Mayans who escaped the expedition of a Spanish conquistador to current day. Learning that the tribe, and the secret blood formula, cannot be bought, the CEO of a multi-national drug company sends mercenaries; a wonderfully crafted, yet violent showdown is unavoidable. 

Central characters are Mekel Mak'ina, leader of the mysterious Mavas u Ch'an and guardian of secrets intended to help humans but that now threaten his people and all of humankind. And Dr. Helen Murray, the researcher sent to persuade the Mayans to share the immortality miracle. She comes to discover, but she finds much more than she could ever have imagined...including the charasmatic Mekel!

How To Write An Engaging Blog Post... Fast

Writing an engaging blog post has 4 main objectives:
  • To captivate and grab your reader's attention,
  • To persuade your reader to keep reading the rest of the article,
  • To provide the best possible value to your reader,
  • To build credibility and trust within your reader's mind,
  • To become an authority to your reader within the area of interest at hand.

How To Prepare Before Writing Any Blog Post - Research

Researching your blog post starts right at where your blog post will be published to. This step comes even before you have a topic in mind for the post.

How To Find The Best Possible Topic For Your Blog Post That Guarantees Engagement From Your Reader

Subjecting your reader to change when they don't need or want to, will most likely cause your blog post to fail horribly. Instead, focus on what they are already comfortable with and give it to them in more detail.

How To Structure The Perfect Engaging Blog Post

Getting this step mastered will not only result in you getting your message across in the most engaging way possible, but it will also have you write the actual blog post at the speed of writing light.

How To Start A Blog Post

Two of the most critical elements of an engaging blog post is your title and the hook right at the beginning. These two determine whether I will read your post or not. Period.
Knowing how to start a blog post will ensure you have your reader's full attention for the rest of the article.

How To Compose The Perfect Body Of An Engaging Blog Post That Sells

How to write a blog post that sells does not necessarily mean you need to shove a product down your reader's throat and have them digg out their last few dollars to pay you.
However, thoughout the blog post you will be selling your reader. You need to either a.) sell them on your opinion or idea, b.) sell them on a common problem they have, or c.) a pleasure they want but don't yet have and d.) finally you'll need to sell them on the solution that you are going to provide to them.

How To End The Perfect Engaging Blog Post

The final stages of the blog post needs to engage the reader even further. This engagement will lead to some form of action, which may include further engagement, an event taking place, a training course being offered, a product being offered etc.

The Merchant and the Menace (The Seraphinium)
The Merchant & The Menace - Daniel McHugh
Genre - Epic Fantasy
Rating - PG13
4.5 (32 reviews)
Free until 2 February 2013
The Seraphim. Beings of power, created to guide the world in times of trouble. They live their lives of near immortality in servitude to a lesser creature, man. 

One rebelled. Amird, the Hand of the Creator, bridled at the sovereignty of his lord. In defiance he murdered a brother and was cast into the Mists of Chaos. 

Millennia passed as the Deceiver plotted his return. Backed by the might of a seemingly unstoppable army of Ulrog Stone Men and their fire-eyed Malveel Lords, Amird plans to wrest control of the world from the Creator and rain violence on the humans he once served. 

All that stands between Amird and his triumphant return are the remnants of battered human armies and the hope that Seraphim, loyal to the Creator, still roam this world.

Kael knows little of this struggle. His quiet village lies deep in the Southlands, unchanged and unchallenged by the wars raging in the frozen North. In fact, the boy longs for a bit of adventure and freedom from the boring routine at his father’s inn.

Freedom comes at a cost. Kael’s first journey outside his secluded village results in a tragedy so deep it destroys the boy’s sheltered world and immerses him in the struggle.

Revelations surface. Kael uncovers a past linking him to legends, grapples with a present that resembles nothing he knows, and confronts a future that demands he tap long dormant power and stake a claim in the defense of the human races. 

Kael’s first step toward that future lies through the darkness of the Nagur Wood, and rumor has it something prowls the Nagur!
