Lenders: The Unlicensed Consciousness By: Travis Borne

Lenders: The Unlicensed Consciousness By: Travis Borne For quite some time now human beings have been at the top of the food chain on Planet Earth.  Quite noteworthy considering the fact that we are not particularly blessed with physical attributes such as overpowering strength or lightning speed.  However, human beings do possess something in spades which the other species on the planet cannot match…intelligence.  This feature has allowed us to colonize and essentially dominate the planet.  Nonetheless, the danger of such a vast intelligence lies in actually outsmarting ourselves- and using our gifts to create entities which we cannot...

Writer’s Block, A Condensed Form of Hidden Potential

Writer’s Block, A Condensed Form of Hidden Potential by S. S. Bazinet   “Writer’s block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work, or experiences a creative slowdown.” ~ Wikipedia In my case, writer’s block lasted for nearly twenty years. That’s a lot of writer’s block. Happily, since that time, I’ve written a dozen books. So how did I manage to get beyond that crushing state of emptiness and frustration? Recently, I had a surprise take on my “blocked” journey. I can summarize my discovery in one word, energy....

The Crown for Castlewood Manor By: Veronica Cline Barton

The Crown for Castlewood Manor By: Veronica Cline Barton Alexander Graham Bell once said that “when one door closes another door opens.”  Wise words indeed!  Unfortunately, many people spend so much time lamenting about the closed door that they are unable to see the potential opportunities which the open door presents.  They are mired in regret and refuse to take a risk.  Sad really- because it is the risk-takers who typically reap the grandest rewards.  In Veronica Cline Barton’s novel The Crown for Castlewood Manor, we see just such a scenario.  For lovers of suspense and mysteries which contain...

Author Spotlight: Ken Stark

Author Spotlight  Ken Stark 1.  What inspired you to write a book? I’ve been writing since as far back as I can remember, so it’s hard to know exactly what inspired me. Probably a mixture of Twilight Zone reruns, monster movies, and the classic sci-fi stories I fell in love with as a kid by guys like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C Clarke. I guess some part of me was always trying to escape the mundane, so I was forever trying to create new worlds and new realities. I’m sure the rest of it will all come out in...

Ablaze By: Harsh Y. Thakar

Ablaze By: Harsh Y. Thakar Do you have a favorite fairy tale?  One that stands out for you and still swirls around in your mind even today?  Many of us grew up listening to a wide assortment of fairy tales and inevitably picked out our personal favorites.  One particular tale which stands out for me personally is Rumplestiltskin.  The idea of a beautiful maiden being helped by an imp-like creature to spin straw into gold is somehow intriguing!  Also, part of what makes this fairy tale so memorable is the malevolent overtones and scary suggestions it contains.  There is...
