The Headman & the Assassin, Earth’s End III

Captain Arthur Romero, a secret commando whose orders come from the highest levels of the military. He's down in bomb shelter, too.

STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE!

You never know where you’ll find love. The village headman, Sam Baahuhd, finds it in the least likely place of all: the underground bomb shelter at Piermont Manor. Sam finds true love with the least likely person ever, a government breaker. Before it all ended, Emily’s job was murder. Murdering people, that is.

In the Earth’s End Trilogy, nuclear Armageddon destroys Earth. People seek refuge wherever they can. A few find it in a cement city three hundred feet below the planet’s poisoned surface. The underground: a dank tomb. An echoing mausoleum. A sanctuary you can never leave.

Can love survive in the underground? Can anything survive there?

Find out in The Headman & the Assassin where lovers discover each other in hell and can’t escape a passion that lasts a lifetime. A sizzling tale of love beyond time and hope. Earth’s End Book 3

The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy

Red Adept Reviews gave The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy an Overall 5 STARS!

Red Adept reviewer Jim Chambers read The Angel and said, “I have to say that The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy is probably the most original story that I’ve read in quite some time. . . . The story was ultimately a fascinating and gripping tale about survival and the desperate measures that some—on earth and elsewhere—would take to ensure their survival.” I invite you to read the entire review.

The Angel is available on Amazon as a trade paperback and Kindle. It’s also available as a Nook, Sony book and iBook. The ebooks are only 99 cents each! Buy here.
In addition to its terrific Red Adept review, THE ANGEL & THE BROWN-EYED BOY HAS WON TWO NATIONAL AWARDS:

2011 IPPY (Independent Press) AWARDS, Gold Medal Winner in Visionary Fiction. More than 3,900 books were entered in this contest.

2011 Indie Excellence Awards, Winner (1st place) of the Visionary Fiction Category.

And it has an average review of almost 5 stars on Amazon!

WHAT IS THE ANGEL ABOUT?

Tomorrow morning, a nuclear holocaust will destroy the planet. Two people carry the keys to survival: A teenage boy and an an intergalactic traveler. 

A FUTURE WORLD ONLY HEARTBEATS FROM OUR OWN:

By the late 22nd century, the Great Recession of the early 2000s has lead to a worldwide police state. A ruined United States barely functions. Government control masks chaos, dissenters are sent to camps, and technology is outlawed. War rages while the authorities proclaim the Great Peace.

IT’S NEW YORK CITY ON THE EVE OF NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON.

Tomorrow morning at 7:35 AM, a nuclear holocaust will destroy the planet. Two people carry the keys to survival: Jeremy Edgarton, a 16 year old, tech genius and revolutionary; and Eliana, the angelic, off-world traveler sent to Earth on a mission to prevent her planet’s death.

Join Eliana and Jeremy as they begin a quest to save two doomed planets … and find each other.

ISN’T IT TIME YOU HAD A DATE WITH AN ANGEL?
The Angel’s sequels, Lady Grace and Sam & Emily are in  production. All the books in Tales from Earth’s End are free-standing––you don’t have to read the whole series to get a complete story. But, if you fall in love with the Angel and her friends, you won’t have to wait long for the next book.

Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money “Bill Gates Meets Don Juan”

Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money

Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money came out in 2008. (Good heavens, has time passed that quickly?) It won six national awards, including the prestigious Silver Nautilus and a Silver Medal in the IPPY Awards. It’s got an almost 5 star review rating on Amazon. Numenon was the number 1 book in all the categories of Mysticism on Amazon and way up there in Kindle sales for about a year. That’s pretty cool.

I want to thank my readers and reviewers and the contest judges for honoring my book by reading and valuing it.

So what’s Numenon about, Sandy? Uh. “It’s about the richest man in the world meeting a great Native American shaman.” That was the response I gave for a long time. It’s true. That is what the book is about. It’s about much more, too. I found this press release from when Numenon was released:

What can readers expect from Numenon?

Numenon is a book that can be read on many levels. First, it’s an suspense/thriller. A reader can get caught up in the story and the interplay of characters and forces. A reader can be enthralled wondering what on earth will happen next. Reading Numenon on this level is just fine.

Numenon can be more than that. It’s a philosophical adventure, starting with its name. The famous philosopher Immanuel Kant defined the noumenon (or numenon) in the 1700s. It means “the thing-in-itself,” pure being as opposed to the world perceived through the senses.

In writing Numenon, I hoped to carry readers to that essential world, the world of absolute reality where mystics live. The glowing foundation of existence.

To get to the deepest heart, one must start where he or she is. That’s what Numenon does. Many of the characters are definite “befores”––they’re powerful, ruthless, unprincipled, and not very nice. We walk with them on a journey toward becoming the people they really are, and we do it in the company of one of the greatest shamans ever to walk the earth.

Numenon is a spiritual and psychological trip from here to there, from where we are to where want to be. To our dearest and truest selves.  The numenon.

I hope you enjoy the trip. I’ve had a blast writing it for you. Please be aware that this book has a bite. It’s not a pretty story about nice people. It’s about flawed people about to have their flaws shaken out. It’s got violence, some sexual situations, and language. I’d give it an R rating.

Is Numenon a gripping page turner, a  thriller pitting the highest levels of American capitalism against ancient shamanic power?

Or is it a philosophic investigation into the reality of the mystics, the reality beyond and beneath our everyday lives?

Will it take you to your core, the real you you’ve always wanted to be?

Read it and find out.

PS. Numenon’s sequel, Mogollon, is written and has been written for a long time. It needs to be shortened from a 1,400 page monster into something that people can lift. That is on my schedule––as I’ve been saying for years, I know. Thank you for your patience, readers.

My rewrite project got stalled when I was bowled over by a little sci-fi/fantasy/visionary fiction series that grabbed my brain and would not let it go. The series is called Tales from Earth’s End.

The first book of the series, The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy is available now. The Angel is the story of a sixteen year old tech genius and an angelic extraterrestrial charged with saving two planets. The book has already won a Gold Medal in the 2011 IPPYs in Visionary Fiction and won the 2011 Visionary Fiction Category in the Indie Excellence Awards. It has almost 5 star reviews on Amazon and a 5 star overall rating from Red Adept Reviews. All for 99 cents as a Kindle. Such a deal. (Numenon and my other books are 99 cents as Kindles, too.)

The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy will give you something to look forward to while I prepare Numenon’s sequel. It’s everything you hoped it would be and more. What’s the more? Characters from Numenon & Mogollon appear in the second book of Tales from Earth’s End., Lady Grace! The series do not merge, but they touch! And create fireworks!
