Tragedy… heartache… how much more can Tyler Montgomery and John Webster take? This missions trip, the “healing” one, has only added fresh layers of pain. Construction of an orphanage in Haiti’s northwest… yes. But a doomed rescue operation, human traffickers, human anomalies, extreme personal danger… risk of death? They hadn’t signed up for those.
Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman’s childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this “country boy” to life in the big cities. Drawing on his many experiences as a private investigator and later a Correctional Officer, Mark combines his unique experiences and imagination to create his stories and characters.
I’ve been writing for years, before I even had any dreams of somehow publishing books. I probably have more ideas than I can ever put to paper (I calculated, it would take longer than my lifetime). I love writing science fiction, fantasy, light-hearted mysteries, and sometimes things that are a little of each. I have parallel dimensions (In Dreams), dark forests permeated by magical creatures and a world where death isn’t an immediate end (Grace), and “fake” magicians just hiding in plain sight (Cameras Tell No Lies). The stories and their characters are usually a little bit weird, a little bit dark, and a little bit hopeful, and anyone who can relate to that probably will find a kindred spirit somewhere in those pages.

Andrea J Britnell is an independent author living in West Sussex, England. As a reader, Andrea has a broad taste in literature but when she came to write her debut novel, her love of science fiction and real science led to the creation of EVAC Ignition. “EVAC Ignition is a near future, fast paced, space adventure, exploring the impact of our commercial ventures as we finally colonize the Moon and beyond. I’m always fascinated by the little things in a sci-fi film or documentary, the down to earth, gritty bits of space life the really tell the story. I hope I’m around when the first tourists take a trip to the stars, maybe I’ll even get a chance to see the Earth from space.”
The Colonel and the Bee is an exciting coming of age/adventure story in which a peculiar explorer and downtrodden acrobat travel the globe on a building-sized hot air balloon, racing against a menagerie of deadly treasure hunters to solve a riddle and locate the precious artifact it promises. Around the World in Eighty Days meets Wizard of Oz, or as one reviewer put it, “Lara Croft, steampunk style.”

Travelling, learning new languages and cultures are my passions. Those passions and my love of adventure are the key elements that inspire me to write my novels which I publish under a pen name J.A. Kalis. The way I write, I want to pull the reader into the story, suck them right into the world I have created, make them experience the adventure, the danger, the action but also the beauty of the unique, often exotic, locations where all the action takes place, and learn something new about the people who live there. So if that’s what you are looking for in a novel, try one of mine.

David L Ryan
After leaving the Air Force in 1967, I decided to hitchhike to Brazil. I got no farther than Mexico City, where I learned the hard way about attractive philosophy majors. After she took me for the pittance I had, I began to look for work. First teaching English and writing record reviews for local magazines, then taking up a camera, I ended up staying 10 years. When I had had enough I moved to San Francisco, working in travel, corporate, and PR photography. The next time I had had enough I moved to Boise, Idaho. Still doing photography, I decided to jot down the ideas I had for a novel. After 15 years, I had had enough again and I published it (Last Communion).
As an independent author, to date I have published four stand-alone novels plus the first four volumes in an evolving saga, where readers are invited to contact me and suggest possible plot lines for their favourite characters. I am currently working on the fifth volume in the series, part of which was suggested by one of my readers! Hoping to hear from more of you soon 🙂
Mike Waller is a writer of Science Fiction and Space Opera genres. His stories focus less on the science and more on the action and adventure in the distant future.

“Through Button Eyes” is a multi-genre compilation of fifteen previously unpublished short stories that will most assuredly take readers on a thrilling emotional roller-coaster ride of excitement, fear, laughter and tears. The stories range from tender coming of age to sci-fi adventure; romantic moments to brutal murder; magical fantasy to family tragedy… and one humorous zombie. This exciting anthology embraces a spectrum of genres where the seven authors skillfully integrated one seemingly innocuous plot point into every story, a button! (Genre Blends: Science-Fiction, Thriller, Dystopia, Fantasy, Horror-Comedy, Speculative-Fiction, Swashbuckler, Action/Adventure, Tragedy, Literary Fiction, Romantic Suspense, Memoir, Coming of Age, LGBT). “Through Button Eyes” was selected from thousands of national and international entries as one of the five medal finalists in the Anthology Division of the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards (NGIBA). Authors: Patrick Witz, Annemarie Olsen, David Loofbourrow, Davin L. Kent, Jane Haworth, Evelina Dunn, Kathleen Coleman
Patrick Witz has from his youth always been fascinated with science, strange discoveries, technology, earth and other worldly places presented in National Geographic and Popular Mechanics. He is a steadfast believer that knowledge and imagination are a powerful combination and readily admits he will forever be a student of the arts, be it creative writing, photograph, or any other artistic interest or endeavor. In his writing, Patrick likes to blend genres and his eclectic nature leads him into a labyrinth of fictional paths. Patrick’s writing goal is to bring his written words to life in reader’s minds… therein to strum emotional cords; sculpt intriguing characters; create captivating dialogue; and paint intricate colorful settings. One can say Patrick’s diversity is the spice of his writing – sometimes sweet, every now and again bitter, often mixed with a sprinkle of humor, a pinch of peculiar flavor, and finished off with an unsuspecting or emotional twist.
