New Release - JIMMY STU LIVES!

by Kent McDaniel
Science Fiction Fantasy Futuristic

Jimmy Stu Sloan has lost his faith. He's a pastor facing old age and eventual death, trying to hold things together for the sake of his burgeoning congregation, The Church of the Living Lord. Inspiration strikes on Easter Sunday morning, just as he's about to give his televised sermon. And, instead of speaking only of the resurrection of Christ, he makes a bid for his own resurrection in the future, vowing to move forward with plans for cryogenic preservation of his body. But when he awakens in the future to find himself young again and memories intact, he discovers not everyone's happy to see him back from the dead. In the hands of his second-in-command, his church has grown to become a political behemoth with more power than he thinks is right. Question is, will he live long enough to help change things back to the way they should be, with church and state remaining separate?
An exciting adventure featuring cover art by renowned comic book illustrator Joe Staton, available now in ebook at popular online retailers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. Coming soon in print!

The elephant in the room

There's an elephant in the room. Everyone can see it and hear it and smell it, but nobody wants to acknowledge that it's there. And, nobody wants to deal with it, even though it's eating everyone's peanuts and crapping on everybody. Everyone is afraid to try and do something because they might get STOMPED by the big bad elephant.

Why monopolies are bad ... A really well thought out post about monopolies and the monster that is Amazon (and by comparison Walmart and Google):

Charles O'Keefe has been promising for a while now that his first book, THE NEWFOUNDLAND VAMPIRE will be out in April. Well, not to steal his thunder - but here it is! Available now on Amazon in print, later in other formats/venues. It just came out today, and we haven't even got it up on our web site yet, but we're working on it. Meanwhile, take a look....

Charles O'Keefe

Like every other geek alive, Newfoundland native Joseph O’Reily secretly wants to be a superhero. At thirteen he fantasized about being a vampire, and ten years later he’s still fantasizing – but mostly about a beautiful redheaded woman who has eyes only for him. The one thing different about Joseph’s adult fantasy is that, amazingly, it comes true one night when he goes to a local university pub. Cassandra Snow, literally the woman of his dreams, invites him to her place for an evening of personal pleasure. Of course he’s not going to say no. But when strange things start happening afterward, Joseph quickly learns that not all dreams should come true.

Cassandra has plans for him – forever. And those plans don’t include daytime activities. An animal lover and recent vegetarian, Joseph wrestles with all the weird changes he’s experiencing after his encounter with Cassandra. Eternal youth and amazing power come at a price that is perhaps higher than he can afford. The constant hunger for blood and the secrets Cassandra harbors test his resolve and his mental and physical limits. And then there’s the fact that a two-hundred-year-old vampire is after his head – literally.

Joseph’s night vision improves dramatically, giving him a glimpse of the darker side of the world and the terrible evil of vampires who walk among humans. As he tries to balance his regular life with the new reality of his vampire existence, he is determined to hold onto his personal convictions and what he values most – his humanity.
