‘'Dragons in the Clouds'' is a epic adventure that  takes place during a time period  when Dragons were alive and freely roamed the land.  The people during this time were getting  eaten by a vicious species of  Dragon. The ruling King  finally  orders the total annihilation of all living dragons. A powerful wizard, named Merlinus, who is a friend to the king, does not agree with the Kings order,  for Merlinus knows all Dragons are not what they seem. So he  does what he must to protect  a family of Dragons that he had befriended. And to protect his Dragon friends, Melinus performs the spell of weightlessness and tells the Dragons to fly up and to hide in the cover of the Clouds.  An unforeseen ability of the Dragons weightlessness spell is that a Dragons fire now looks like that of lightning and their roar is like that of thunder. Melinus  tells the Dragons to live within the clouds and to only come down at night to eat.  An apprentice to the wizard who has grandeur of his own  has a plan for Dragons that he has hidden deep within a mountain cavern. Now enters  a widowed mother, her young boy, who had also befriended  a dragon, though a very young one. They suddenly find themselves  caught  between  the Kings order and a battle that has begun between two species  of Dragons. A battle that would determine  control of the skies  above the Kingdom of Albion.  This Apprentice's plan has consequences that may bring the Kingdom and perhaps the very world we live in today to an devastating  end.

In Oh Don, Once Again, author, pundit, humorist John Sammon once again skewers Donald Trump, to start with by refusing to call him Donald (that's the name of a spoiled rich kid).
Sammon gives Trump common sense advice on how he can become a more effective leader by becoming a human being instead of a jerk.
Trump doesn't think he needs to be honorable. Sammon tells him different.
As in the first book Oh Don, installments of Oh Don, Once Again were posted weekly to Trump's Facebook page where they were erased by someone 10 minutes after posting.
Trump or his cronies can erase the comments in Oh Don, Once Again, off of his website. But they can't erase the difference between right and wrong. That's what this book is all about....

Sometimes we experience something so traumatic in our lives, it changes us forever…

Renee Johnson has found herself in the midst of turmoil. She has made nothing but a complete mess out of her life and nothing could prepare her for the path laid out before her. An unexpected turn of events plunges her into the most challenging situation she has ever faced. With her best friend, Miah Hunter at her side, Renee must traverse a course that most would not even dare.

Chase Randall, Renee's new love interest and her light in a dark world, has been challenged by something he never expected. A surprise situation sure to test his resolve and ultimately, his humanity. Despite the negative impact of their plight on their lives, Chase weather's the storm, only to face the biggest tribulation in the end.

Together, Renee and Chase withstand the beating, leaving them to face a new world in the aftermath of their tragic loss.

Subjected to the indecision of medical professionals who insist on perpetuating a practice they claim is safe, every woman should learn to question them. Doctors are human too and are far from perfect, but patients tend to say nothing, never challenge their practices, and therefore things will never change. The events described in this memoir were either a direct or indirect result of a doctor's dismissal of signs of impending difficulties, or their failure to act in a timely fashion using interventions that could have otherwise made a difference. In A Flash calls them all into question and, with any luck, will force them to at least look into what appears to be the source of devastating loss for thousands of women everywhere. End the madness: Question their motives, stand up for your rights, and never allow them to disregard even the slightest concern.

Blood of the Unknowns, a sequel to Guns of the Abyss, is the second of two novels of political intrigue and warfare that follow a woman's attempt to prevent the spreading cataclysm of events that ignite World War I. In Blood of the Unknowns, we visit the outcome of her vain political activism, and the misfortunes of her husband, a former assistant to the German Chancellor, now consigned to the machine of war as a low-ranking army private fighting at the behest of militarist aristocrats supportive of the imperialist government's expansionary view of a European continent.

Under the moonlight, he and a fellow German soldier, a dark-skinned Gypsy recruit, share the same crowded stand in a muddy, hand-shoveled trench on the deadly Western Front. As oddly paired as two men of different backgrounds and experience might be, Privates Frieslaven and Maruska hunker in protective friendship, a vital, cooperative defense against enemy sniper fire, bombs and bayonets, and the failures of German leadership that result in the sacrifice of tens of thousands of men pushed beyond human capacity.

The human toll of death and gruesome injury soars on a daily basis as constant waves of courageous soldiers snip through braced lines of rolling barbwire, crawl across pock-marked fields, and watch in war-weary horror as compatriots ordered to charge are felled by machine gun fire so thick that retreat is inevitable for those few left standing. Unilateral surrender is not a choice, however bloodied the troops.

 

REVIEWS:

An absolutely staggering account of soldiers at war. Makes you seem to be there, gasping with fright, sick to the stomach at the horror of war in having to kill and killing advancing ground troops. A must read for any soldier.

Keith Reeve


Wow! Powerful! Well written, scary, sad.

Larry Bryan

 

Brings the horror of trench warfare to“ life”; no pun intended.

My Experiences as a Medium

The route to mediumship is never an easy one and if you ask any medium they will all tell you their path in life has not been easy and mine is no exception. I'm saying this not for sympathy far from it, but for those of you on this journey it's a rite of passage and we all have to go through this. Why? Well in order to be able to empathize and be compassionate to others we have to experience those we help's point of view. We need to walk in their shoes; only through adversity can we truly experience ‘their' side.


It's not all doom and gloom, we don't have a hard time all the time to make up for the down times we have periods of elation, where spirit lift us and make it very clear no matter how hard we feel life is we will never be allowed to fall so low we cannot get up again.


So if you are on your development journey do not despair you will be given strength and help to cope with whatever life throws at you.


To a lesser extent this goes for everyone whether you are on a development journey or not, Earth is our classroom, life is not fair, we are here to learn and often the best way is through trial and error, making mistakes and learning where we went wrong.

Latest Poem

I was alone

when I went searching

   for your face

in all the crowded bars

where love hides out

under an assumed name.

           

There were many other faces

decorated with whiskey smiles

   and anxious lips

ready to whisper

anything I wanted to hear

but never telling me

what I really

   needed to know.

 

Why do those faces

always look so desirable

   at night

and so terribly lonely

when the morning sun

invades my one-room world

and splashes across

   the tumbled bed?

 

I didn't know your name

   then

or even what you looked like.

But I recognized you

by the sadness

in your eyes.

   Or was it

the reflection

of my own

lonely stare?

(Excerpt from the “Sadness of Happy Times” by Lou Duro: www.louduro.com)
