Once Upon A Time,
there was a king who passed.
He left behind two sons,
one beloved and one outcast.
The older of the two was set to take the throne.
But before he could, he had to find a queen to call his own.
The younger one was known to be unruly and unhinged.
The chosen queen was warned to keep far away from him.
Beautiful and cunning, in the light is where she stayed.
But late at night it was the shadowed lands in which she played.
Mistakes were made and secrets forged; forgetting duty and her sense.
And while the new king had her hand,
her heart belonged to the scarred prince.

Remembering Rosie

 

Memories of a Wisconsin Farm Girl

Memoir

Date Published: June 2021

Publisher: Page Publishing



In Remembering Rosie: Memories of a Wisconsin Farm Girl, the author looks back fondly on growing up in the mid-twentieth-century on her family’s Wisconsin dairy farm. She shares vivid and heartwarming stories of attending a one-room school, the dangers and hard work of dairy farming, and lessons learned that built a foundation for her long life. She reveals the turning point when she vowed never to be a farmer or a farmer’s wife.

Despite having an often idyllic childhood, by the 1950s, the post-war optimism fed teenage Block’s hope of going to college to escape her barricaded and often small-minded world of farm, small community, and church. Though her desire to go to college was not encouraged by her family and teachers, and there was no money to help, as the oldest of five children, she knew she had to lead the way. Take a trip through the good, bad, and ugly of dairy farm living in the 1950s as the author looks back with nostalgia on the childhood she wished to escape.

A Paris Affair by Mary Oldham




Title: A Paris Affair
Series: Hotel Baron #1
Author: Mary Oldham
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2021


BLURB

Begin a brand-new series from award-winning author Mary Oldham—two friends become lovers in book one of the Hotel Baron’s Series—a whirlwind office romance where the boss is never right… A Paris Affair

From Paris to Portland, their journey is heartfelt as the search for true love knows no bounds.

Daisy has never known the unconditional love of a traditional family. It’s not that she doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after. She’s just not so sure she’ll ever find it. But that’s the least of her concerns right now—if Daisy doesn’t land a job, she’ll have much more to deal with than just finding work. Fortunately, the stars are aligned. She lands her dream job and quite possibly her dream man too…except he’s her boss. And she’s totally against office romance for reasons only her mother knows. But she can’t seem to keep away—

Alex doesn’t believe in love at first sight. He doesn’t tolerate employee fraternization of any sort. When they first met, he found her delightful and someone he could imagine a future with—but then he’d hired her. She was his subordinate, and she was strictly off-limits. At least that’s what he’s been telling himself…over and over and over and over.

As they grow closer, they discover a mutual attraction that won’t quit. But, will Daisy get her HEA? Does Alex realize their love is real?

Meet Kandi

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Book 2 of the Dung Beetles of Liberia series.


Political/Historical Fiction

Date Published 12-15-2021

Publisher: Boutique of Quality Books (BQB Publishing)


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png  

 

April 1979: Ken Verrier and his wife, Sam, return to Liberia to buy diamonds. They did not return to get caught up in a rice riot and a coup d’etat. But that’s what happens. Ken witnesses and unwittingly participates in a period of Liberia’s tumultuous yet poorly documented history—the overthrow of the Tolbert presidency and ultimately the end of the Americo-Liberian one hundred thirty-three years of political and social dominance.

 

 

2019 Grand Prize Winner – Red City Review

 

Based on the remarkable true account of a young American who landed in Liberia in 1961.

 

The blend of fictional action and nonfiction social inspection is simply exquisite, and are strengths that set this story apart from many other ficitonal pieces sporting African settings. – D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

 

NOTHING COULD HAVE PREPARED HIM FOR THE EVENTS HE WAS ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE. Ken Verrier quickly realizes the moment he arrives in Liberia that he is in a place where he understand very little of what is considered normal, where the dignity of life has little meaning, and where he can trust no one.

 

It’s 1961 and young Ken Verrier is experiencing the turbulence of Ishmael and the guilt of his brother’s death. His sudden decision to drop out of college and deal with his demons shocks his family, his friends, and especially his girlfriend, soon to have been his fiancee. His destination: Liberia—the richest country in Africa both in monetary wealth and natural resources.

 

Author Daniel Meier describes Ken Verrier’s many escapades, spanning from horrifying to whimsical, with engaging and fast-moving narrative that ultimately describe a society upon which the wealthy are feeding and in which the poor are being buried.

 

 

It’s a novel that will stay with you long after the last word has been read.

Everlee likes to torment me, to enrapture me with her innocence at every turn. The games we play skirt the lines of what is appropriate, but I’d never allow myself to cross them. Her father would kill me if I did.

Enter Purgatory — the club that caters to every manner of taste. Arranging a meeting with a stranger to fill my needs, the last thing I expect when I look in the window of our meeting place is to find Everlee sitting and waiting for me at the table marked with a single red rose.

I hope she’s ready to play.

EXCERPT

The door closed as my attacker took a few steps into the silent room, and then my world turned upside down again as he flipped me over his shoulder. The soft press of a mattress came against my back, catching me as he flung me forward.
I thrashed, rolling as I tried to vault for the edge of the bed. I didn’t know shit about my circumstances or surroundings, but I had the distinct feeling a bed was never a good thing while being kidnapped.
Crap on a cracker, I wanted to die a virgin.
His weight came down on my hips, pinning me still as his hands touched the back of my head, sliding beneath my hair. He unknotted the scarf from the back of my head and pulled it away from my eyes.
The light in the room blinded me, the overhead fixture shadowing the face of my kidnapper from view as I blinked to adjust to the sudden glare. His fingers slid to the front of my face, grasping the cloth gag he’d shoved into my mouth and wrenching it free. My lips throbbed with pain, leaving me to run my tongue over them to soothe them.
When my eyes finally adjusted, my mouth dropped open as I blinked a few more times.
I was dreaming.
This was a nightmare, a twisted manifestation of all the years I’d spent wanting a man who some would consider my family.
“Uncle Landon?” I asked, my voice trembling as I spoke the words. Still believing it was a trick of my mind, refusing to accept it as reality.
There was no way he would scare me like this. No way he would risk hurting me.
“Hello, Everlee,” he said, the smooth drawl of his voice curving around my name like a gunshot to my chest. I dug my nails into my own hands, hoping the sharp bite of pain would wake me up.
There was just his hazel glare, anger like I’d never known directed at me.
Oh God.
