Author: George Woelcken Title: War and Defeat Subject: History Release Date: Available Soon Reviewer: Michelle Hunter
George Woelcken does an excellent job in capturing his family’s history dating back to WWII. This is an epic illustration of the human plight given from the perspective of a German gentleman. When reading this story the reader is instantly placed in the setting of war, violence, poverty, social injustice and survival. The history of this family was eloquently written. George made it a point to speak of the good parts of his family as well as the not so great points. This novel is definitely written for the history fanatic, who is willing to learn about capitalism, socialism and the human struggle for equality, as well as getting an insight to the German viewpoint. This is the beauty of this novel. Anyone can connect to the many stories and atrocities displayed.

Author: Clair William Harmony Title: The Check Subject: Fiction/Mystery Release Date: Available Soon Reviewer: Valerie Porter
“What starts as a small-scale, intriguing mystery escalates to an all-out global situation involving the FBI, CIA, White House, Cosa Nostra, drug cartels and terrorists. Our main character goes from mild-mannered postal carrier to billionaire, living in a massive “bunker” with a secret railway, and a huge security team. The story almost feels a bit too extreme or outlandish, bordering on world domination, but the saving grace is that the author definitely has a knack for the mystery/thriller genre and the reader becomes so engaged that there’s a willingness to forge ahead, eager to be part of the rollercoaster ride till the end.

Author: RJ Ward Title: What Would You Call...? Subject: Humor & Entertainment Release Date: Available now Reviewer: Valerie Porter
What Would You Call…? is a clever book in concept and the illustrations add immensely to the project.
The humor is simple and obvious and at times quite enjoyable. However at other times, it feels like an old-time comic routine from a show in the Catskills – each pun waiting for that drum roll or riff – Ba DUMP bump! This will appeal to those who like this brand of humor, but perhaps not to a wide audience. At times it’s very much a thinking person’s riddle that is presented (thanks to the author’s wide-ranging knowledge). How he ever thought of all of these riddles is a major accomplishment in itself. But in spite of this, at times it borders on too silly.
Author: Ernie Alanis Title: Llorona Subject: Fiction Release Date: Available now Reviewer: Michelle H.
Alanis does a great job in creating this epic story about Llorona, a mystical priestess whose sole mission is to fight child abuse. The story is told by multiple characters, but Alanis does an amazing job creating the stage. Alanis takes us through time periods starting 500 years ago in Spain, to the crusades of the New America to the 21st Century. Mestizo, the offspring of Llorona and Fernando Medina, tells the story at the beginning of the book. This is the introduction of the priestess and the illustrations are impeccable. As a reader you are drawn into this world of paranormal mixed with real life historical events. Alanis has definitely created this book for anyone who is interested in sci-fi/paranormal/historical books. It is eerie at times but is consistent with twists and turns that will keep you on your feet. It was brilliantly crafted, and can easily have a sequel with the existing ending.

Author: RJ Ward Title: The Hermit and the Time Machine Subject: Fiction Release Date: Available now Reviewer: Valerie Porter
What a delight for children, and for adults willing to suspend reality! The Hermit and the Time Machine is clever and charming with an environmental message that is handled in thought-provoking ways – robots using recycled dump materials, no more humans in existence because they polluted and poisoned the planet. Author RJ Ward’s writing is very descriptive in terms of characterizations (especially with Professor Boson and with the robots) and locations (the beach scenes and the Professor’s home in particular).
