Book Review: Serpents Underfoot by D.C. Gilbert

At least one member of JD Cordell’s family has fought in every conflict that the United States has been involved in as far back as the French and Indian War. This included his father, Curtis Cordell, who married the beautiful South Vietnamese woman who saved his life deep in the jungles of Vietnam. 

JD grew up to believe that honor, loyalty and a devotion to duty went hand in hand with the skills and compassion he learned from his years of martial arts training. These things molded JD into the man he is and the accomplished Navy SEAL he has become. 

While on a dangerous mission, JD’s SEAL team unexpectedly discover a plot being orchestrated by a terrorist mastermind living in Iran, which if successful, could spell disaster for the United States. Receiving a message from an old school friend who now works for the CIA, JD finds himself suddenly catapulted into the center of this sinister plot. When his friend is killed, assassinated by the terrorists, JD finds himself drawn still deeper into the sinister conspiracy. Working to avenge his friend’s death, JD uncovers a trail of treachery and betrayal that reaches from the mountains of Iran to the highest levels of the U.S. Government. Can he prevent a major terrorist strike which has the potential to destroy an entire way of life? JD’s honor will not allow him to simply walk away. Continue reading

”I completely fell in love with Cristian Mihai’s beautiful way of writing. His main character, Chris Sommers, is an embodiment of realism. His persona was much attune to what some of us feel about ambition, love, and the realization of heartbreaking disappointment. I felt a connection to him in a much deeper level than I’ve ever known. Mihai’s writing style just reaches out to you, captures you – without letting go for a moment. It’s also very personal that you just can’t help but love the main protagonist. There were times where it pained me to stop reading because I wanted to note down my favorite quotes from the novel because it was just that amazingly brilliant.” – E.S. praise for Jazz.

”This book was very unexpected. It made me think about what is means to be a writer, what the process of creation means not only to the creator but to those who are affected by what has been written. Much of what Mihai says here will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to put words on paper.” – Cynthia Dumarin, praise for The Writer.

Price?

”I was drawn in after reading the first page. Being a “hopeless” romantic I could empathize with both characters but I felt a connection with “him”. The authors description of loneliness, excitement, regret and pain is so intense, I became emotional while reading. It is gripping, honest and touching. Beautiful story…” – Melanie Lawson, praise for 2:22 AM.

Book Review: Game of Killers by Charles Purcell

The perfect assassin’s tool has been stolen from America’s high-tech labs. Only Tier 1 soldier the Spartan can prevent it from killing the US President.

It was one word.
Spartan.
A name.
Spartan.
A call sign.
Spartan.
A blood oath.
Spartan.
A way of life.
Spartan.
And America’s only hope.
Spartan.

Millions died in the United States when a weaponized plague was unleashed upon the world.

Now a new menace threatens the country just as it begins to recover. Continue reading

The Traveler

Caminante, no hay camino,
se hace camino al andar.
— Antonio Machado

The traveler sat down on a sand dune and saw nothing. He heard nothing. He feared the worst. He had reached a truly godforsaken place: a vast, mournful pan of emptiness where anything sentient resented anything else that was alive. Every sun-scoured scrap of fauna had barbs, hooks or thorns, every animal had poison, paw or claw. Scorpions scuttled and snakes hissed and slithered while they went about their grisly business of survival. Even sand was an enemy. It burned his feet raw, it stinged his eyes and acted as a surrogate for pain.

His skin felt like scraped by sandpaper, his tongue was cloven to the roof of his mouth. His eyes felt like they’d melted into the back of his mind, making everything seem mirage-like. He knew he was alone, abandoned, and doomed. A colorless heat haze had blurred out the background and his vision had become myopic.

Yet, through the silence, through the nothing, something throbbed, something gleamed. Continue reading

Page 99: The Writer

thewriter_99Now it’s time for Jonathan Fisher to have a few minutes of fame.  Page 99 from the paperback edition of The Writer.

“We’re such hypocrites. No one wants a funeral audience of three guys, like Stendhal. That’s why I was relentless, that’s why no matter how many publishers turned me down, no matter how many people told me to stop writing and get a normal job, I didn’t listen.

When the entire world seems to reject you, that’s when your art becomes more important than ever. That’s when you write to live, not the other way around. Continue reading
