A Need For Book Reviews and Beta Readers!

Hello out there!

If anyone is interested in reviewing one or two books, or becoming a beta reader for a historical/paranormal series of novels, please let me know.

First one: A fantasy/paranormal/adventure

eBook Cover Small_512x512

The High King’s Embalmer

Set on a planet similar to Earth, “The High King’s Embalmer,” is a dystopian fantasy adventure, with a touch of horror and has a few paranormal elements, loosely based on the premise that the ancient Egyptians had encountered aliens resembling half-men, half-jackals and enslaved them for their own gain.

While assassination rumors and wars spread freely, Jibade, the royal family’s shape-shifter, embalmer and guard, is intent on finding those behind the deaths while protecting his master. Before he has a chance, he is kidnapped by bounty hunters. He escapes but is hunted by the king’s men due to a misunderstanding in that the king believes he ran away.


Free ebooks are available for reviewers and/or beta readers. (pdf, or a coupon from SmashWords, etc). This is one novel of three. The second book is nearly complete and I’d like to collect a few more reviews before releasing it.

Second book:  A historical fiction with a touch of old-fashioned romance.


Bittersweet Tavern

“Bittersweet Tavern.” This book is set during the beginning of the American Revolution in Maine, and features a spunky barmaid widow, Jerusha, and a sea captain, Daniel. He is avoiding the British Navy, while she is curious about what he is up to. Sea battles, a town is bombarded by the British (true story), etc. (It was originally published by Bygone Era Books, LTD, but they went out of business, and I republished it on my own with a new cover and interior layout). I’m working on the second book for this series, also.


ALSO! NEED BETA READERS! Historical fiction with a touch of paranormal, set during the medieval times, mostly.

In need of Beta Readers for an older series I’m thinking of publishing in the near future: It’s a historical/paranormal and takes place during the late 1200s to mid 1300s and jumps to modern times (well, 1990s). It’s not a time-travel. It’s basically about a knight, his family, friends and misadventures (and bad luck). A touch of Romance. Jousts. The Undead. This series consists of three books. The third is still in the writing stage, but nearly complete. I started it many, many, many years ago and became distracted and didn’t get back to it, but plan on it!

Another Bar/Pub Adventure

This adventure took place some months past (and will continue in the future), in the historical town of Howell, Michigan.

The first time, I visited 2FOGS (which I’ve been told, stands of 2 F_cking Old Guys), it was  very busy that night. The menu arrived in the form of a small book, yet it was simple to read. A waitress passed by with a tray of Deviled Eggs which some other patrons orders, and I thought I’d like to try those (I wanted something cheaper to start with). Unfortunately, that evening, I could not try them as the waitress said they were out. I tried the Gourmet Pretzel instead, which came with two sauces, a sweet mustard and a queso cheese. It was delicious. Honestly, I can’t remember (at this time) what drink I ordered. I’m sure it was good. 🙂

On the second visit, I ordered a Moscow Mule, which came in a copper mug. (This was new to me, and the first time I’ve had a drink in a copper mug. Now, I see copper mugs are everywhere. My sister had mentioned previously that she thought I might like to try this particular drink… she was correct). I admit, I liked it. It came garnished with a mint sprig and tasted of ginger. I also tried their Cuban Pizza, which consisted of pork, BBQ’d, with dill pickles (those who know me, know I absolutely love dill  pickles, especially dill), and honey mustard topped with mozzarella on a grilled pita bread (taken from their menu). I did not have the onions which come with the pizza (I’m anti-onion for the most part).

The décor was very cozy and quiet despite the many people there—comfortable seating and red brick walls. The owners have gone with a “speak-easy” theme (think prohibition-era) and I think it’s a great addition to Howell, Michigan. Of course, I will go again. I’d like to try some other of their Mules, Martinis, and the Hemingway Daiquiri in the future. Perhaps, I can finally try the Deviled Eggs.

Those of you interested in such things, can find 2FOGS in the basement of the Heart of Howell building in downtown Howell. You can enter through the back alley. (It’s easy to find, I found it and I rarely know where I am). Their website is here: http://www.fogspub.com

The next adventure (I’m behind on writing about my bar/restaurant dining experiences), will be a short review about an Italian restaurant in Sedona, Arizona… Stay tuned in for that.

Coming Soon!

As soon as I find, and decide on a printer… “The High King’s Embalmer,” will be in print! This will be a shorter version than the e-book, (as I had originally planned when I wrote the book). I hope to have it released prior to the end of the year 2015. Also, coming in 2016 will be the next book, “The Family.” This is book two of the continuing saga. If all things go well, it will be released in e-book and print formats. 🙂

I have other books in the works, so be sure to check around for those, also.
