Always Book 1
by Lexxie Couper

Life’s great — it’s the terminal degenerative disease that sucks.
Maci is young, smart and about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. It looks like she has the world at her feet, but appearances can be deceiving. Because Maci is not like other college girls. She already knows her future is written and there’s no happy ending in sight.
For Raphael, life is all upside. He’s on the fast track to success and nothing can stop him—except his unexpected love for a girl who’s convinced she’ll hold him back.
When Maci and Raphael are drawn irresistibly together, they’ll both have to redefine everything they thought they knew about life, love and happy ever after.

“We were at war in Vietnam and my fiancé was drafted the day after he
proposed to me. I hadn’t thought of that September day for so long, and
then I began “Stefan’s Promise.” Soon I was recalling that day and
others, events and circumstances shared by those of us who lived through
the “tumultuous year of 1968” and the following 35 years. In the
Preface, Sam Rennick states his intention to deliver a completely
absorbing tale. He does!”

—D.W.G.Artist

The author brings great sensitivity to one powerful scene
after another. There is Mike Huxtable, victim of an unprovoked blow,
aimlessly wandering the aisles of a drug store, day after day. There is
Stefan Kopinski, half-pondering his friend’s illness, half-observing the
Midwestern city in which he finds himself. These scenes but two among
many in this compelling novel.”
—Silvia Lorente-Murphy, PhD Professor Emerita Purdue University

 
Book Description:

The Vietnam War Changed America. Two Best Friends Weren’t Spared. Only One Was Drafted.

It’s 1968. America is rocked by assassinations, war protests and
political upheaval. Alan Young, 21, is brooding over having been dumped
by his girlfriend. This won’t last long. His draft notice is in the
mail. Stefan Kopinski isn’t about to let the war get in his way. He
spends his days at the mercy of his reckless ambition. When fate steps
in, will he finally understand what has been right in front of him for
30 years? “Stefan’s Promise” is the story of Alan and Stefan.
Circumstances part them and sharply diverging temperaments further erode
their bond. Yet, Alan and Stefan are wrong in supposing their
friendship has ended. It’s just getting started.

 
 
 
Meet the Author:   

Sam Rennick began writing Stefan’s Promise forty years ago, but
it wasn’t until fairly recently, when he retired from his law practice
that he was able to take his manuscript from its drawer and finish it.
He admits he wishes he could say he planned this all along, since the
two books comprising the novel, though written many years apart, combine
perfectly into a compelling narrative.

While many authors have influenced him, he singles out Somerset Maugham
as his muse, observing that Maugham always starts with a good story, but
often finds a way to insert that “something extra” separating merely a
nice tale from literature. Sam’s interest in books is only exceeded by
his love for baseball, which began when he was nine years old.

GUEST POST

What is my favorite travel spot?

Great Britain. This can be explained. Britain is the first foreign country I visited. I was 19. Everything was wonderful. For example, Westminster Abbey. I had studied Gothic architecture, to be sure, but it was one thing to see the picture of a Gothic cathedral in a book, and another to step inside one. It was the height of the structure that left me dumbfounded. I remember wondering not only how it was built, but what motivation (faith, presumably) could have been strong enough to undertake it. Nor, at 19, had I become a devotee of English literature, but I did visit the famous “Poets’ Corner,” and years later, when my knowledge of English writers had gone well beyond Chaucer and Dickens, that long-ago time among the poets of “this sceptered isle” came to mind. Moreover, who doesn’t like an order of fish ‘n chips, washed down with a pint of bitter? How can you dislike a people who call trucks “lorries,” a flashlight a “torch,” and who drive on the wrong side of the road?   

My Reviews

It was an interesting book to read. There was actually 2 stories made into a novel. the first part fallows the life journey of Alan Young and the second one fallows Stefan Kopinskis and at one point brings them together . Their stories felt so real at times. I enjoyed this book a lot

I give this book 4 out of 5 bookstacks

Monsterland

Welcome to Monsterland–the scariest place on Earth.

Wyatt Baldwin’s senior year is not going well. His parents divorce, then his dad mysteriously dies. He’s not exactly comfortable with his new stepfather, Carter White, either. An ongoing debate with his best friends Melvin and Howard Drucker over which monster is superior has gotten stale. He’d much rather spend his days with beautiful and popular Jade. However, she’s dating the brash high-school quarterbackNolan, and Wyatt thinks he doesn’t stand a chance.

But everything changes when Wyatt and his friends are invited to attend the grand opening of Monsterland, a groundbreaking theme park where guests can interact with vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by werewolves on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.

With real werewolves, vampires and zombies as the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?

The Heart of Space Tour

The Heart of Space
by Cendrine Marrouat
Genre: Poetry
“The Heart of Space” is a collection of 38 pieces that delve into several major topics, including solitude, the importance of embracing pain, and the lessons one can learn from self-discovery.
“Every single poem is utterly endearing, imbued with a careful sense of introspection, philosophical musings and above all a genuine feeling of hope that, no matter what happens to us in our lives, in the end things will turn out all right.” – David Ellis, Author of “See A Dream Within: Found “Poe”try Based On The Collected Poetry Works Of Edgar Allan Poe”
Thank you for your interest in my work!
My name is Cendrine Marrouat. (It is pronounced as “san-drEEn mar-wah”. The “t” at the end is optional.) Originally from Toulouse, France, I moved to Winnipeg, Canada, in 2003. I am a dual citizen.
I am a photographer, specializing in nature, black-and-white and closeup images. My photography seeks the mundane to capture the fleeting, but true beauty of life in its many forms.
I approach photography in the same way as I write poetry. It’s not about the tools. It’s about the moment when my eyes catch a story that needs to be told. What happens next, is a spiritual yearning to describe the scene with my camera. However, it is during the editing process that my poetic background comes into play. Every photo must achieve two goals: simplicity and serenity. I use the pure black and white format to convey timelessness. Occasional tinges of sepia are for added depth. Finally, colors stand for romanticism.

He fears that consummating their marriage will bind their souls and wrench his focus from the ancient riddle his dying mother begged him to solve.

Then William arrives, brandishing raw sensuality which dares her to explore her own.
William the Storm isn’t a man to be gainsaid. He’ll give her protection, loyalty, and as much tenderness as he can muster. But malignant memories quell the mere thought of love. To him, the curse is codswallop. He plans a seduction to breach Emma’s fears and raze her objections. What follows is a test of wills and an affirmation of the power of love.
