For the Dark Lord plans to steal everything!

Life is Beautiful, by Sarah M. Johnson

unnamedLife is Beautiful, by Sarah M. Johnson, will be released on August 25, 2015. The book is available for pre-order on Amazon, published by Morgan James Faith. Genres: Self-Help / Memoir / Christian

Life is Beautiful takes you on a full journey of trauma, loss, and finally resilience. While on a mission’s trip in Guatemala, a small Cessna Caravan’s engine blows while carrying fourteen passengers. Unfortunately, the Cessna crashes in a remote village, leaving eleven of the fourteen passengers dead. One passenger, Sarah, shares her story in Life is Beautiful, about the deaths of her father and brother; her mother’s extreme physical and emotional injuries, and Sarah’s self-discovery to accept this new life.

Life is Beautiful, however, is more than a story about an airplane crash. Life is Beautiful shares the personal struggles of Sarah’s father’s drug use, his recovery, and redemption to be a better person. He gives back by doing missions work in Africa, takes in Sarah’s aunt dying of uterine cancer, and eventually leads their family to the mountains of Guatemala. Sarah also discusses her struggles with alcohol use and depression; where she eventually hits rock bottom. It is not until she starts seeking God through prayer, books, and therapy, where she starts to turn her life around.

Life is Beautiful is not only a unique story, but it shows the strength of God’s Will. When all hope is lost, she never gives up on God. This story is a true testimony of God’s love for His people, and when one seeks a spiritual journey and connection with God; He gives back in love, forgiveness, and happiness.

One Night in Tehran: A Titus Ray Thriller by Luana Ehrlich, a Christian mystery/suspense novel.

Front cover for website smallOne Night in Tehran: A Titus Ray Thriller by Luana Ehrlich, a Christian mystery/suspense novel.

Trained in lies, a covert agent learns the truth

Veteran CIA officer, Titus Ray—on the run from the Iranian secret police—finds shelter with a group of Iranian Christians in Tehran. While urging Titus to become a believer in Jesus Christ, they manage to smuggle him out of Iran to freedom in Turkey.

Will it help him deal with his past?

Returning to the States, he discovers his Iranian mission failed because of political infighting within the Agency. In a hot-tempered outburst, he delivers a scathing indictment against the Deputy Director of Operations, and, as a result, the deputy forces Titus to take a year’s medical leave in Oklahoma.

How will it change his future?

Before leaving Langley, Virginia, Titus learns he’s been targeted by a Hezbollah assassin hired by the Iranians. Now, while trying to figure out what it means to be a follower of Christ, he must decide if the Iranian couple he meets in Norman, Oklahoma has ties to the man who’s trying to kill him, and if Nikki Saxon, a local detective with an intriguing past, can be trusted with his secrets.


B. Miller: “I have read all the big name authors. Luana Ehrlich is giving them all a run for the money. It is obvious she has done a lot of research to make this book geographically, politically, and culturally accurate. It kept me so enthralled that I started it and did not put it down until I was finished. I can not wait until the next book comes out.”

P. Lockhart: “It held my interest from the very beginning to the end, and has me looking forward to the second book. The story has strong characters, the thrill of mystery, a touch of possible romance all wrapped around Christianity. It ends in a cliff-hanger style which will definitely keep me coming back for more. I am loving me some Titus Ray!

star cover smallStars Shine After Dark takes romance past the wedding and into the conflicts that lie ahead.

Stars Shine After Dark, by Paula Hrbacek is a sweet love story that has faith woven through the plot and used as a means of making decisions. Faith is the compass that guides them through their problems.

Mona is an actress who grew up in Hollywood. She is trying to revamp her image from a child actor to a mature woman. She decides to go to college, and makes friends with her agent’s niece. The niece introduces her to Tim, a football star for UCLA.

They are both stars, both successful. It should be a fairy tale romance, but someone is leaking stories to the press that aren’t true. Mona intends to find out who is leaking the stories, and stop it.

Tim is offered a contract to play professional ball, but before he can sign the contract, his career is ended by a car crash. Mona reacts by being strong, and kicking her own career into high gear. Tim goes into real estate, and hates his job. He is jealous of her success. He thinks about divorce, and comes up with a plan that will let them separate without harming Mona’s image in the eyes of her conservative fans. He still loves her, he just isn’t happy with his life. He discusses his problems with a friend, a woman who also has broken dreams and unfulfilled ambitions. Because of her insights, Tim turns to meditation and examines his heart.

Mona finds her answer by reading the book of Hosea. She realizes that she has lost sight of what is really important to her, and decides to change her relationship with Tim. They may have been going through a dark period, but if they are stars, they will find a way to keep their love shining.

“Stars Shine After Dark is a unique story. I don’t think I’ve read anything quite like it before. There are some exciting moments from twists in the plot, and not torrid sex scenes. It is a book both men and women can enjoy.” Says Laura V. Hilton, The Road to Romance, Oct. 22, 2003.

“Very highly recommended,” writes Liana Metal. “It’s an exciting story that will satisfy those who like romance. It is certainly a very modern, yet, romantic story that includes elements of the every-day student lifestyle. This book caters for everyone who loves romance and it is an easy and enjoyable read.”

“The author has a vocabulary and doesn’t need smutty gutter language and explicit sex to tell a good story,” says Rosemary Stanovsky. “It’s a feel good book.”

“Not your typical romance, Stars Shine After Dark is more about relationships and the issues that all too often ruin a marriage. This is a very well written book, addressing the conflicts faced by the characters and how they deal with them. It is, after all, not the problems that life hands us in marriage, but how we face and handle them that matter. You will enjoy this book,” writes Peggy Phifer, editor, Wordsmith News,

“It handles the love scenes so nicely,” says Betty Del Gallo. “I got to the scene where they go off together and said to myself ‘oh boy, her it comes.’ But it wasn’t like the other books out there. It was refreshing.”

“…compelling, well-written and contains a valuable message.” The Writer’s Edge.

Her latest release is Day Camp in Hawaii, a program guide for any type of summer camp or recreational program, published by Create Space.

New book offers program activities for summer camp or summer school.

When school lets out for summer there will be a variety of programs for youth to keep them busy during the summer months. The directors of these programs will be interested in a new book, Day Camp in Hawaii. This book offers a summer camp program for elementary age students that can be used by any youth group, camp or summer school program.

“When I was in charge of Cub Scout Day Camp, I thought the best part of the job was coming up with all the activities, games, crafts and songs needed for the program,” the author, Paula Hrbacek said. “Later, I worked for Campfire and the YMCA doing after school and summer programs. They used a theme for each week of camp, too. Even though they were different programs, they still used games, songs and skits.”

It was difficult for Hrbacek to find enough activities for a week of camp using a tropical theme. Instead, she wrote her own activities such as the deaf sign language hula dance. She rewrote the song “Tiny Bubbles (in the wine)” and turned it into “Mighty Cub Scouts in a line.” It meets the Cub Scout requirement for using sign language, but if the name of the organization is changed, it could also be used to meet Girl Scout requirements for dancing and singing as well.

Writing her own activities was the easy way to come up with an original and fun program. Hrbacek majored in journalism and art at the University of Missouri-Columbia. She’s the author of three arts and crafts books and one novel. Currently, she writes about children’s arts and crafts for the Panama City edition of The Examiner, a free online newspaper. In addition to her publishing credits in Highlights, Pack-o-Fun and other magazines, she has a degree in elementary education from Pensacola Junior College and experience teaching art in a Catholic school.

A stay-at-home mother of four, Hrbacek has fifteen years experience leading Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts. She received the District Award of Merit from Boy Scouts for her work on the Cub Scout Summer Day Camp Program. She was also given the Girl Scout Outstanding Volunteer Award for her work with Juniors, Cadettes and Senior Scouts.

“The attendance record is a brilliant idea,” said Roy Smith, the air rifle instructor at the camp. “She saved herself a lot of paperwork with that one.”

Shannon Drake-Bleakney, a Cub Scout Day Camp Director in Indiana said “I was very impressed by your Day Camp In Hawaii ebook.”

Day Camp in Hawaii has everything a summer program needs; games, sports, crafts, art projects, Hawaiian lore and trivia facts, geology, skits, songs, guest speaker suggestions, first aid, CPR, tourism, music and dance. It also includes money saving tips, time savers, and organization and management tips. Every activity has an introduction that is educational, and a closing thought that reinforces a basic value, such as honesty, hard work, and friendship.

The activities are grouped into two age levels. Lower level activities are for grades K to 3. Upper level activities are for grades 4 to 6.

“I did a similar event for Girl Scouts at Cluster Camp,” Hrbacek says. “Many of the activities in this book can be used for that program, too. Other leaders came up to me and asked where I found all the ideas we were using, so I tried to make the book meet as many program requirements as I could, and make it adaptable to as many situations as I could. It isn’t just for day camp; it can be used at family camp, a church outing, Webelos overnighter, Cluster events, a Mom and Me sleepover, or even just a troop or pack’s campout for a weekend.”

“This is a great book,” commented Laurie Flynn, an artist in Pensacola FL. “There are a lot of great ideas in here. It gives a leader a lot of choices.”

Campers who participated in these activities when Hrbacek ran it as a camp program said it was “awesome” and “the best camp ever.” Leaders commented the program was “well organized” and “easy to do”.

Will He? By Linda Heavener Gerald

51rfKDdR+HL._SY346_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_Will He? Was the Lombardi family really cursed? Most everyone in the small village of Frascati, Italy, believed it. When Laura visited her home in the beautiful village only minutes away from Rome, her life changed from the protected little rich girl in Newport, Rhode Island. While learning to adjust to a new life, she also learned to respect the father whom she never understood.

Frascati also relinquished secrets of her family going back to generations of the famous and infamous male artists. Italy not only charmed Laura but, while there, she learned the real meaning of family and love. Evil was also lurking for her. Much history of the region is discussed as are the restaurants and shopping available in the Eternal City. You will fall in love with the Italian way of life, but agree that home is really where the heart is. The ending will surprise and thrill you. Truly, you will regret to see Will He?



MyAuthorPhotosx4Linda Heavner Gerald is currently retired and lives with her husband on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico in the winters and the delightful town of Blowing Rock, N.C. in the summers. The year 2012, Linda started writing. First was a children’s book: Dusty the Island Dog. True tales of a couple of island dogs which lived in Abaco, Bahamas. There is a base of truth to the stories but since the dogs are able to talk with each other, there is also much fiction. The laughter of Linda’s only grandson when she told him these tales, convinced her that they were worth telling.

Beaufort Betrayal, her first Contemporary Christian book is a joy to read. This Mystery/Thriller will “sail” you away on the Bermuda Hinckley which the protagonist of the story, Tory, loves. As you are caught in a web of lies and deceit, you will find it difficult to tell who is lying and who is actually true. All of Linda’s books contain reference to God. She knows that this gift of writing is from Him. You will fall in love with the tale of a sleepy coastal town as well as the charm of Palm Beach, Wrightsville Beach and Blowing Rock. What a wonderful way to travel.

Rosemary Beach is also a Contemporary Christian, Mystery/Thriller. The romantic tale of an older wealthy man and an insecure nurse will delight you. As you laugh at the maid, Lucy, you will thrill to the love of this story. Just as in life, nothing is perfect; the reader is soon faced with a jilted x-lover whose main goal has become to destroy and discredit Rosemary. You will desire to visit the beautiful Rosemary Beach, Florida. In this story, you are transported to Macon, Georgia as well as Linville, N.C. Sailing to Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head will encourage you to clean those barnacles from your ship. Most of all, see the result of including God in your plans each day. Happy sailing but more importantly, happy reading.

The Guardian by Joshua Mumphrey
Do you believe in miracles and the mending of a broken heart through true love?

There was a time, when Melissa Rennings didn’t, the time when she lost her mother to brain cancer at only 17-years-old.

The once bushy-tailed, bright eyed teenager, was tragically turned into a responsible, burdened and longing adult overnight.

Life still went on. There wasn’t time for her heart to properly heal and for her to grieve. She had to be the guardian for her younger brother he didn’t have anymore, when their dad (the only parent they had left) drowned his own pain away in countless bottles of whisky.

Everything seemed lost; all the pieces of her life had shattered before her feet.

Could she mend those broken pieces of her life back together again, while trying to heal the emotional scars that were afflicted upon her heart?

She didn’t know…

A boy named Bobby Clayton, with a heart pure as gold, tried his best to change all that. He tried his best to make her believe again; believe in what she felt she had lost.

Their once-in-a-lifetime love would later be tested with virtually impossible situations.

Can they hold tight to each others hearts, through yet another tragedy; one that was Bobby’s fault? Can they remember the pure and beautiful feelings they shared with one another, when life’s storm’s threatenes to wash their love away?

These were questions for the desperate and destined lovers, back then, that they didn’t have certain answers to.

Melissa had a choice to make. She had to either chose the one she swore to protect or the one she promised to always love…

The choice she made changed her life forever!

Come with Melissa on her journey, as she loses and searches to find, true love; it was for her, the best medicine

collection, is a tale that is dear to his heart. He loves sharing
stories of ordinary people living extraordinary lives. He writes books
about hope, faith and love when he can, while juggling a personal
life, chores and just about everything else that comes along with
being a young adult.

Joshua is thankful for every lesson, every professor and every minute
he’s spent working tirelessly, trying to perfect his skills. He thanks
God firstly, his mother secondly and all of his professors thirdly,
for making him into the writer, photographer and graphic artist he is

“A special thanks to Rebecca Stewart, my Graphic Arts instructor.”

Joshua’s life hasn’t’ always been easy and neither has learning, being
labeled as one of the “dumbest kids” in his high school class. But
now, he’s learned to transfer that negative energy into something
positive by writing his way to success!!!

Joshua knows, without God that none of his accomplishments could have
been within his reach. He share’s in his own words, a little bit about
why he writes and to whom he gives the glory.

“I am thankful to the Lord, to God for guiding my feet along the path
of opportunity. It is in that opportunity in which he uses my gift to
glorify his name. It is in that gift that I use to touch the hearts
and minds of those, who have a listening ear and an accepting spirit.
I pray that the works of my hands change lives and break barriers,
weakening strongholds and setting captives free. I know, I have been
blessed and I’m compelled to use what I believe, I was given and bless
someone else’s life.”
