Lee Matthew Goldberg – Orange City

About Orange City

Book Information: Orange City by Lee Matthew Goldberg

About Orange City

Imagine a secret, hidden City that gives a second chance at life for those selected to come: felons, deformed outcasts, those on the fringe of the Outside World. Everyone gets a job, a place to live; but you are bound to the City forever. You can never leave. 

Its citizens are ruled by a monstrous figure called the “Man” who resembles a giant demented spider from the lifelike robotic limbs attached to his body. Everyone follows the Man blindly, working hard to make their Promised Land stronger, too scared to defy him and be discarded to the Empty Zones.  

After ten years as an advertising executive, Graham Weatherend receives an order to test a new client, Pow! Sodas. After one sip of the orange flavor, he becomes addicted, the sodas causing wild mood swings that finally wake him up to the prison he calls reality.

A dynamic mash-up of 1984 meets LOST, Orange City is a lurid, dystopian first book in a series that will continue with the explosive sequel Lemonworld.

Tobin Marks – Ark of the Apocalypse

About Ark of the Apocalypse

Earth is on the verge of becoming a dead planet.

The polar ice caps melted long ago, and it’s been decades since the last raindrop fell. Ocean levels rise a dozen meters, and forest fires rage on a global scale. Eleven billion people dying of thirst wage water wars against each other as extinction looms.

Humanity needs a new planet. As Earth deteriorates, the nation states desperately work together to build a mechanism for recolonization. And so the Magellan II is born, the first starship capable of interstellar travel.

The future of the human race is tasked to ten thousand colonists — now homeless but for the vastness of space and the decks of Magellan II. A distant planet offers hope of survival, but it’s a strange, watery world inhabited by giant reptiles.

Humanity is starting over, but survival isn’t guaranteed.

Aime Alley Card – And Beneath It All Was Love

About And Beneath It All Was Love

Shortly after moving from Boston to the intensely competitive environment of Silicon Valley, Aime received the news: she had stage two breast cancer.

Aime had known of friends with cancer. Generally, they dropped out of sight, reappearing months later looking tired and wan, with thinning hair and waistlines. Suddenly she was that friend—the breast cancer patient.

Anger, fear, and anxiety threatened to take over Aime’s life. But with the support of her sister, friends, husband, and children, Aime would discover the love hidden just beneath her fear.

And Beneath It All Was Love recounts Aime’s journey through treatment and into recovery. Her young age and pathology report indicated aggressive treatment. Aime would endure debilitating chemotherapy, two surgeries, and radiation therapy. She had to almost die to give herself the best chance to live.

Honest, raw, and ultimately uplifting, Aime’s story pulls no punches when describing the mental and physical toll of breast cancer treatment. She is not the same person who heard the dreaded words “You have cancer.” That person is gone forever. In her place is a stronger, more resilient woman who learned to treasure life as a daily gift and embrace love over fear.

Indy Perro – Central City and Journeyman

About Central City

Kane Kulpa learned which laws could be bent and which broken after a short stint in prison courtesy of Detective Vincent Bayonne. Bound by time, integrity, and the reality of life in Central City, Bayonne and Kane made peace with the past. Now, gang tension spirals from corrupt to deadly, and a series of murders stresses Kane and Bayonne’s uneasy alliance. Kane balances on a razor’s edge to protect his bar, power, life, and family, and Bayonne hustles to keep another lonely man from being strangled.

Central City is a city struggling for identity. The cops protect the rackets, and the criminals shelter the injured. Innocence is only an appearance, and rage finds a voice.

About Journeyman 

After the events of Central City, Kane Kulpa struggles to consolidate power in the underworld and Detective Vincent Bayonne investigates the death of the mayor’s son. The mayor’s justice and Bayonne’s goals appear to coincide, but in Central City, nothing’s as simple as it seems. To keep the city from falling into chaos, Kane must acknowledge the truth about himself and Bayonne must support Kane, even as he struggles to accept the men he and Kane have become.

Andy Rausch (editor) – Bloody Sheets

About Bloody Sheets

When a young black man is lynched in a small Alabama town, his estranged father – a crime world enforcer – sets out for revenge, embarking on a blood-soaked journey that will leave the ravaged bodies of dead Klansmen in his wake.

Praise for Bloody Sheets

“Rausch unleashes a flurry of gut-punches both painful and thrilling; his prose brimming with righteous anger and stark, no-bullshit wit. This racially charged and crackling tale reads like a startling mash-up of Jim Thompson and Iceberg Slim, making Bloody Sheets that rare achievement: hardboiled and hard-hitting, but transcendently heartfelt as well.” (Wesley Strick, screenwriter of Cape Fear)

Jaire Sims – Getting By

About Getting By

This debut novel, “Getting By”, is an engrossing and uplifting coming of age tale about an introverted young man struggling through social pressures to reach his potential.

Carver Goodman dreams of becoming a photographer; but first he needs to graduate from high school. He spends his junior year worried about the same things that affect his peers–things like taking the ACT, bullying, and falling in love for the first time–but Carver’s situation is a bit different, because he’s beginning to suspect that he’s gay.

As he struggles to understand himself in terms of his sexuality and how he fits into the world, he learns a lot about who he is and finds the strength to overcome the challenges life throws his way.

Getting By is a touching and poignant coming-of-age novel that will resonate with any person who has ever felt like he doesn’t quite fit.

Praise for Getting By

“Carver Goodman’s decisions and options on the cusp of adulthood create a compelling, uplifting, realistic story of a potentially successful young man and introvert who faces pressures and influences beyond those usually wound into African American coming of age stories. Getting By is an exceptional, thought-provoking read.” – Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Reviews

About the Author

Judith Michael is a New Zealander who writes under the name of J Victoria Michael.

She is a story-teller, fascinated with other dimensions, time travel and unexpected, remarkable talents. Long novels with speculative elements are her favourites, stories that take her to strange places and keep her turning the pages late at night. Judith has a passion for classical music and beautiful movement, from ballet to belly-dancing. As a child she made up stories told in dance, wearing out the toes of her shoes to the vexation of her parents. Later, she discovered the joy of story-telling in words with music a constant muse.

Her first long work was a fantasy novel. When the manuscript was finished and its themes clear, she re-wrote it, retaining only the main protagonist and the original premise. The story of one woman’s compelling need to redefine herself could have been told within the framework of contemporary Australia, but Judith wanted to add the archetypal element of an imagined world. Long before she finished the work she realised her novel was turning into a trilogy. In order to keep track of her characters she would summon individuals to her study for a discussion. Sometimes they summon her to the fictional world of Dar Orien.

New Zealand’s pristine beaches and richly-greened landscapes have influenced her sense of place. Time spent living among the flamenco gypsies of Andalusia, and communing with mediaeval spirits in France has, in subtle ways, informed the physical and emotional landscapes of GriffinSong Trilogy.

Judith has a Diploma of Professional Writing and Editing, and her short stories have won various awards, appearing online and in print. Judith lives permanently in Melbourne and shares her home with a bossy ginger cat.
