New Indie Book Release: The Eighth Titan (Zach Jordan)


New Indie Book Release:
The Eighth Titan - Zach Jordan
Epic Fantasy (903 Pages - May 2020)

The Eighth Titan is about an 18-year-old trying to save the world, it's about struggling to place allegiance properly, studying something you have no hope of understanding, and fighting to protect the fragility of life by crushing that very thing. Beyond all that, it's about a metaphysically dualistic world, moral ambiguity, and pontifications on the purpose in a life.


About the Book

New Indie Book Release: The Eighth Titan (Zach Jordan)
Click to Read an Excerpt
Magic is quite unlike how the storybooks describe it—it’s cryptic, impenetrable, and has been illegal for over seven hundred years. And yet, the last of a dying race has prophesied this to be the only way to stop an ancient evil, that which was sealed away a millennium ago by seven titans: the Eighth, a nefarious being intent only on bending the realm to its cruel subjugation.

To make matters worse, the realm’s history is all but unknown. Information on the titans is scarce, and there exist no accounts describing how they sealed the Eighth originally. Not to mention, the magical ‘arts,’ taught in ancient tomes inherited across generations by the politicians of today, seem to raise questions more than answer them. Our young hero finds himself confused and disoriented, mentally taxed by his studies and a realm that appears more chaotic and violent with each passing day. Even those closest to his heart are transformed by the journey, forever marked by misdeeds committed and suffered through.

This is Jack’s story—it is a story of growing up, of a crumbling world direly needing strength, of love and hatred intertwined in passionate bonds, of the cyclical deaths and rebirths all find themselves within, of realizing how much must be sacrificed for what he fights to protect. It is his story, and it is everyone’s story.

Featured Indie Book: My Journey to the Ocean (Lena Mikado)


My Journey to the Ocean (Lena Mikado)

Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Philosophical Romance Novel My Journey to the Ocean by Lena Mikado.

My Journey to the Ocean is a coming-of-age novel based on a true story. It’s a story about falling in and out of love, about making difficult choices when trusting the voice of your heart, about traveling the world and how it changes your perception of reality.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon and is available as eBook and Paperback - 372 pages - released in February 2015.



About the Book

Elena knows what she wants from life. Her whole picture-perfect existence is planned out and allows for no deviation. She is engaged to be married and intends to be happy.

Along with three of her girlfriends, she leaves her home in Russia to take a summer trip across the ocean, to St. Simons Island, Georgia, United States. Pool parties, vodka watermelons and the eternal question - to shag or not to shag.

Her whole world is about to be rock-n-rolled, and she will have to face a pretty hard choice. It all sounds like a setup for a summer-fling novel, but can our dreams manifest in the physical world or does Miss Real Life have something more conniving under her sleeve?

Are there happy endings in real life?

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "[...] I loved the writer's astute observations on life, relationships, love. They come up suddenly and unexpectedly and truly blew me away. That was one mature twenty-year old. The happy end was also heart-clenching.
I highly recommend this fun and light read."
- Maria M (Amazon)

- "I love this book, I enjoyed it immensely- all of the "characters" aroused a subtle reminder to find meaning in everyday life. AND...the moral of the story? Ironically is, - 'No one can save you, but yourself' [...]" - Emma L. Waters

- "I really enjoyed the book, read the whole thing on 2 flights and couldn’t wait to see what happened. It’s a beautiful love story, makes you nostalgic for your teenage years and miss those love butterflies. Thank you for sharing your story!" - Olga Getsina

About the Author

Author Lena Mikado
Author Lena Mikado
As a girl growing up in Voronezh, Russia, Lena Mikado loved the Southern classic novel Gone with the Wind so much so that she now lives with her husband and 3 children in the sunny Golden Isles of Georgia, and she strongly suspects that her fascination with the work of Margaret Mitchell had a great deal to do with how her life unfolded. Writing about the magic way fiction and reality tend to interweave in our everyday lives has become Lena’s true motivation on her creative journey.

When not busy writing, she loves learning French, traveling the world with her family, belly-dancing and enjoying an occasional glass of wine in her lovely back yard.

Lena writes tongue-in-cheek, reality-based novels that take the reader on an enjoyable trip all around the world that are full of colorful, thought-provoking reflections on the matters that preoccupy most of us every minute of our lives: relationships, parenthood and trying to live in the present moment—all of that with a splash of delicious, flying-by-the-seat-of-your-pants humor splashed on top. My Journey to the Ocean and A Year in the Sky are the first two novels of the All Colors of the Rainbow series, and they are now available from all major online bookstores. Lena is currently working on her third and final novel in the series—titled It's All About Love.

Featured Indie Book: The Republic of Jack (Jeffrey Kerr)


The Republic of Jack (Jeffrey Kerr)

Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Literary Fiction / Political Satire The Republic of Jack by Jeffrey Kerr.

The Republic of Jack has a great premise (Texas becomes an independent country). "You know, Dr. Kerr, Texas has the constitutional right to secede."
It's funny and it provides insight into the absurdity of today's politics.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon and is available as eBook and Paperback - 249 pages - released in April 2020.



About the Book

Jack Cowherd will do anything to win the Texas governorship, even flirt with 21st century secessionists in the Texas Patriot Party. Victory is achieved, but only at the cost of Texas being tossed out of the United States. The Republic of Texas lives again! And Jack is president.

Friend and political advisor Tasha Longoria has long warned Jack of the dangers of his demagoguery. Now when he tries to halt the madness, the worst comes to pass: he is impeached, arrested, and charged with treason, the penalty for which is death.

Jack has but one chance to save his beloved Texas, not to mention his life. But success depends upon help from the one person least likely to give it . . . Tasha.

The Republic of Jack (Jeffrey Kerr)
Click to Read an Excerpt

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "[...] The action and dialogue move at a fast pace and I found myself laughing out loud more than just a few times. In my opinion, if you like Mel Brooks comedies, you’ll like the hilarious, and sometimes ribald, comedy. Kerr pulls no punches and goes where the story will inevitably go. [...]" - WGirl (Amazon)

- "This page-turner of a novel is set in Austin, mostly around the doings of the Texas Legislature. Readers who know Texas will find many of its fictional characters to be cut from easily recognizable cloth. This underscores the author’s deep understanding of both the city and of the powerful political leaders who populate the corridors of the Capitol Building. Written in the finest traditions of Billy Lee Brammer [...]" - Arthur Webber

- "Jeff Kerr loves Texas! He has had a knack of making the stories of Texas history come alive. This novel begs the question of which is most outlandish, fact or fiction? His honor and satire are on full speed ahead and the pages keep turning as you keep one eye on Twitter feed. A fun read. Thank you, Jeff.[...]" - Kent Bohls

- "With colorful, witty characters and an exciting storyline, this book entertains and peaks concerns as well: just how stunning a catastrophe can politics get us into? I highly recommend Republic of Jack!" - Puppy Pool (Amazon)

Featured Indie Book: Arnold Falls (Charlie Suisman)


Arnold Falls (Charlie Suisman)

Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Literary Fiction Novel Arnold Falls by Charlie Suisman.

Arnold Falls is a humorous story of a small upstate New York town that does a lot of things wrong but gets one crucial thing right: everyone's welcome.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon and is available as eBook and Paperback - 276 pages - released in March 2020.




About the Book

Spend time in the funny, oddball village of Arnold Falls, where larger-than-life characters deal with the smallest of problems. Somehow, it all comes out right in the end.

Given the choice of go big or go home, nine times out of ten the townspeople of Arnold Falls will go home, get back into their house slippers, and forget about the whole thing, whatever the whole thing was this time. Tempests great and small (mostly small) are always brewing in this tiny, upstate hamlet where half of the residents are fighting to preserve Arnold Falls as it was in its red-light-district heyday, half are up to no good, and another half are sleeping it off. And that math is correct.

Jeebie Walker moved north out of the city hoping to find a house with his then-boyfriend and a quieter life. He found the house but lost the boyfriend, and is still searching for the elusive tranquility. Just now, he's helping a pal become the first female mayor of Arnold Falls; he's fighting against a plan to build a noxious tire factory by the river; and he's working to save Chaplin, a beloved turkey, from Thanksgiving.

What he's not doing, in no uncertain terms, is looking for love. Not even with the handsome orchard worker-slash-volunteer fireman-slash-cartoon artist who has an eye for him. And yet, hapless though it may be, Arnold Falls will have its way when it comes to love. First, Jeebie and the town's unruly cast of characters, (which includes the 93-year-old daughter of a bordello madam, a theatrical agent/recidivist pickpocket, a doltish mayor, a social worker who sings like a dream, and a television chef who does not take kindly to prune clafoutis sabotage) will have to wage epically tiny battles to restore the disorder that makes perfect sense in Arnold Falls.

Arnold Falls (Charlie Suisman)
Click to Read an Excerpt

Arnold Falls is a novel that tips its hat to Armistead Maupin and P.G. Wodehouse, creating a world in which food, music, friendship, love, and tending your own garden are connected in surprising ways.


Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Hilarious and poignant...Suisman's comedic novel will charm readers with its endearingly eccentric characters and its slice-of-life portrait of a disreputable corner of New York State...A charming, funny novel." - BookLife

- "A masterful book, so full of intelligence, humor, and truth. Everything about it seems effortlessly sure-footed. The large cast of characters all speak with such clarity. It’s plot is perfectly paced. It manages at once to be folksy and sophisticated. But more than that, it’s a vivid portrait of what many of us today aspire for." - Someone Somewhere (Amazon)

- "I smiled throughout. I loved it! Many laugh out loud moments. Truly memorable characters and Arnold Falls will stay with you long after the last page." - Joy McLean

- "[...] with such characters that the reader can also, upon quiet reflection, perhaps learn a small life lesson or two to apply to his or her own life and town. I highly recommend this heartwarming book and hope the author writes more about Arnold Falls and it’s very lovable and very human townspeople." - Amazon Review

About the Book

Yggdraslia - The Book of Kyrinae (L.P. Owen)
Click to Read an Excerpt
The Goddess Kyrinae is dying, and along with her, the world of Yggdraslia.

Kiera discovers this when a messenger sent by the goddess comes to her and pleads for her help in restoring life to the world. There is magic in Kiera, and the power that runs in her blood is the key to saving Yggdraslia.

However, the Church of Kyrinae, which stands as both law and religion, forbids it. To save the goddess, Kiera must seek out shrines around the world and imbue them with her power, but to do so is both illegal and heresy.
