New Release: The Heretics of St. Possenti by Rolf Nelson

Word Around the Writer Blogs

Guess what? Rolf Nelson, author of Back From The Dead (Book 1 of The Stars Came Back) and whom we did an author interview of, has a new release titled The Heretics of St. Possenti. This is a prequel to The Stars Came Back and is "about the founding of an order of monks... with guns!" in the author's words.

Here's the blurb:
Bishop Thomas Cranberry finds himself at a loss when he is confronted by a thief and realizes some disturbing truths about himself. The experience sends him in search of the men who are increasingly absent from the Church, who find themselves at a loss in a world that has gone increasingly feral, and who feel that they have nowhere to go and no one to whom they can turn for support. In listening to them and attempting to understand their plight, he finds an unexpected mission.

THE HERETICS OF ST. POSSENTI is for readers who want the backstory of the story and for those who want to know how one inspired man can make a difference in a fallen world. It is a novel for those who need inspiration to get them though the day and those who look for unusual ways to accomplish the mission. It is for people who understand and respect the old ways but know that sometimes a seed cannot grow without splitting the pavement.

Rolf Nelson is the author of BACK FROM THE DEAD is the first book in The Stars Came Back series.

FREE: The Untethered by S.W. Southwick

Philosophical Techno-Thriller

This coming-of-age techno-thriller is FREE today and tomorrow - The Untethered by S.W. Southwick.

Here's the blurb:
A juvenile delinquent chases his dream to build the greatest aircraft in history--and the world tries to stop him. A rising political star runs from her childhood dream--and the world encourages her on. A self-loathing geneticist hides below the streets of Las Vegas--and rebels against the whole world. An artist tries to make his father proud--at the cost of everything he loves.

When all four lives collide, each must make a choice. And the world will never be the same.


Quote from the back cover:

Alexa counted her shallow breaths. “Roble, what...what is it you need?”

He pulled his arrowhead out from his shirt and rubbed it. “I don’t need to hear how scary the world is and how I shouldn’t try anything. I don’t need to know how much suffering there is out there,” he pointed out the window, “or how bad I should feel about it. What I need…” he looked up, his grey eyes pleading, “…is to see someone who is still happy after growing up.”

Lowering his head, he added, “I need to see living, Ms. Patra, because I actually want to live.”


Quote from inside:

The East China Sea glistened like an endless glass sheet. The F-22 Raptor Super Kai flashed just above its surface, ripping twin aerated water plumes into the air.

A grey destroyer sat broadside in the water just ahead. Roble hurtled toward its bow without slowing.

Crossing above the ship, the jet's sonic shockwave rocked sailors to the deck as if Roble's soul had exploded through their bodies. Sea spray from the wake doused the ship's hull like an exclamation point.


Advisory: This novel contains sex, drugs, and fighter jets.

In the year 2016, with a hop, skip and jump,

His goal is nothing less than to become President

And to make America great for each resident!

And find his way to the highest office in the land?

New release Yuriko: A Real Girl by Anastasia Atelier is only 99c for a limited time!

Here's the blurb:
If you could create the girl of dreams, would you?

Well Joe did. And his life and that of his friends will never be quite the same again as Yuriko is downloaded into their lives.

Yuriko is a bleeding edge bit of AI packed into a curvaceous high-tech chassis.

Follow along as Joe, Devon, Zoe, and Nicole try to keep Yuriko's secret safe while also trying to prevent her from going full Washuu and blowing up New York City by accident. And its never quite clear if its Yuriko or they are who are learning.


I checked with the author and she says it is a PG-13 sort of book, with a lot of anime inspiration.
