Somewhere Between Light and Time – @RABTBookTours @BookBuzznet

Historical Fiction

Date Published: December 21, 2021

Have you ever met a stranger and felt that you already knew them?

The story begins in the 1800s when Elias and Henry are souls on the Other Side. Their own time as humans lies ahead of them, but they unwittingly observe their ancestors-to-be as they progress through major historical events. From slave-liberation missions in antebellum America to the horror of the Vietnam War, they follow six generations across two centuries. But as the family separates, the descendants form two divergent lineages, thousands of miles apart, into which the two souls are eventually born.

Elias and Henry grow up in different countries but meet again in modern Britain—without any recollection of the Other Side. Civil-rights activist Elias is hiding from a Russian kidnapper when he runs into Henry, who has become a kind-hearted but prejudiced Englishman. Against the backdrop of repeating historical patterns, they become entangled in a love triangle with free-spirited Lana, who becomes Elias’s protector.

Blinded by his intolerance, Henry unwittingly brings danger upon them as the agent closes in on Elias. But soon, all their historical experiences unravel into the present, and eventually produce an unexpected, startling ending.

Somewhere Between Light and Time is a fast-paced adventure drama in which historical events and everyday reality are interwoven with elements of the supernatural. Aiden Leman lives in East Sussex, England, where he works in financial services for his day job. He studied International Relations in Scotland and was previously active in the teaching sector. He has worked in five different countries across three continents, although his dream job would probably be a firefighter.

Review

This book brings a great attention to detail and a great respect for the time period of the book and setting. That makes it feel all the more authentic.
The pacing was wonderful and I loved how the story flowed in my mind. Great characterization with people we actually feel for.
This book is outside of the box in a great way.

Fan Into Flame @RABTBookTours @MKWebsiteandSEO

Igniting A Heart for Christian Arsonism

Christian / Nonfiction / History

Date Published: July 2, 2021

Publisher: MindStir Media

As the sun rose on the Twenty First Century, it was clear that something was wrong in the stuffy and traditional confines of the American Church: the church people within the building had lost connection with the community people outside of it. In so doing, they lost their burning relationship with Jesus Christ, who came from the very throne room of God to be in relationship with those alienated from Him.

In Fan Into Flame, we follow the relational story of Peter the Apostle with Jesus: from the simple spark ignited at their first meeting, through the trials by fire over three years, to the heart wrenching failure of Peter’s denial. Throughout, the fisherman must step outside of his familiar surroundings with a bold willingness to have his weaknesses exposed, his sinfulness revealed, and his very life threatened. Peter must lose what he thought was important, gain what he could not obtain, and discover the commitment Jesus demands, the cost Jesus invites him to endure, and an incomprehensible love Jesus desires to give.

Like Peter, the church need not fear the unfamiliar or its own failures. It need only fear quenching the fire of the One who will never abandon her through both. This is the story of a true Christian Arsonist.

About the Author

Joseph Skladany is an ordained pastor and has served in the Christian and Missionary Alliance since 2011.After pastoring in Ohio for three years, he moved to the Pacific Northwest where he is currently pastoring at Ignite Alliance in Veneta, Oregon. An out-of-the-church-box thinker, he has challenged the traditions of the often ingrown, static church, preferring to direct people’s attentions to their community with an understanding of the current cultural context and armed with a sacrificial willingness to be open and fallible. Joseph has two adult children and his wife, Sandra, is a licensed counselor practicing in the Veneta, Eugene area.

Review

If you are looking for a book that thinks outside of the box and really makes your mind work overtime, this is it.

We get a female heroine in Annie who may initially seem meek, but really comes out of her shell to face things head on. I loved her growth in this book!

I definitely think this is one of those dive in and don’t get up kind of books. It will hook you as you get lost in the words.

 

About the Author

Like Shakespeare and Hemmingway, I am an eclectic writer. My stories
develop from my imagination and passions, usually just before I fall asleep.
Before I became an Indie author, I had two novels published by a respected
independent publisher, which went out of business. Since books cannot be
removed from Amazon, A Sinister Obsession is now Dead Can’t Haunt You, and
Stardust Dreams will soon be Forrester’s Folly. During my clinical careers
as a School Psychologist and Clinical Social Worker in private practice, I
had a book on human nature published by a traditional publisher and when the
editor passed away, it vanished. That book will be updated and launched next
year. Happily, I am now an Indie author with the same quality of work but
now under my control. My genres have been horror, suspense/thriller, senior
romance, sci/fi, and now apocalyptic, which is based on my worries about the
precarious future of cyberspace. Besides writing, I am an avid golfer,
bowler, and tennis player. I reside in Florida with my lovely wife and
Mickey, our handsome Shih Tzu.

Excerpt

Her name resonated in a deep voice; the sound more akin to the reverberation of a gong than spoken word. A thrill tickled down her spine.

Eyes forward, she met the gaze of her partner.

Oh.

If her shoulders sagged with disappointment, she hoped no one noticed. The gentleman who held the bit of paper with her name was a tidy sort of man. Average height, average build, short-cropped brown hair, staid expression, and, oh goodness, spectacles perched on the bridge of his nose. He was exactly the sort of gentleman she might expect to find at a writers’ retreat.

Leila sighed. It would be a long afternoon.

He took his counterpart’s measure. Her countenance spoke of someone who would rather be anywhere except by his side. The subtle assessment he made of her person was for scholarly purposes.

The length of her eyelashes suggested she was, how should he say, flighty. The straightness of her nose implied a confidence bordering on conceit. The fullness of her lips invited untoward attention. By a connoisseur of women, she would be considered a stunning beauty with her soulful brown eyes, sleek ebony hair, and bronze skin denoting a South Asian heritage, but all Jules recognized was the arrogance of her carriage. She would not be his preferred partner for a treasure hunt.

He sighed. It would be a long afternoon.

By day, Paullett is a university professor, teaching argumentation, composition & rhetoric, technical/business writing, creative writing, and literature.

Nonfiction / Religion

Date Published: July 14, 2021

Publisher: MindStir Media

This book was written in the state of breathless Samadhi, on a cell phone. Pithy mystical aphorisms began arriving from “ourselves in the future”. These future selves have survived the cataclysm we are currently undergoing and want to extend a hand to help us through the Apocalyptic labyrinth safely to the other side. This journey is not what is expected. The price of admission to the New Earth turns out to be realization of every terror we’ve ever imagined. Turns out, it was only ourselves we were afraid of in the first place! The final reward is the acceptance and embracing of this glorious terrifying Self. What we were looking for is what is looking for us.
