    The extraordinary travels of a young, alone and broke psychic. The heart-warming and adventurous true story of a young woman on her own at age seventeen, broke and surrounded by talkative spirits that don’t want to go away. Living in-between the physical world and the spirit realm, yet feeling a stranger in both, Sherrie Dillard criss-crossed the country by bus, train and hitchhiking in a search for answers. Along the way she was led to help the poor and homeless on skid row, install water systems in Mayan Indian villages, live alone in a tent in the mountains and make art with juvenile offenders. It was in these diverse environments that she came face to face with saints, angels and dark spirits and learned to trust her psychic ability. From her early secret encounters with spirits who guided and ultimately saved her life, Sherrie Dillard finally accepted that what made her different and odd, was also her greatest gift. I’ve Never Met A Dead Person I Didn’t Like, is a powerful story for anyone who listens to - or doubts their own intuition and the presence of their loved ones on the other side. Even in our darkest hour, in the depths of loneliness and overwhelming challenges, divine guidance and miracles are always present.

    No Pit So Deep (The Cody Musket Story Book 1) by James Nathaniel Miller, II is a remarkable story and novel which everyone must read – 5 Big Stars! This story leaves me speechless. This is an emotional gut-wrenching story that is way too common in America. I applaud the soldiers who make it to normalcy after their military service in places that become a blip on the news and media outlets. In this novel, I cried for their losses, celebrated their happiness, and valued every step of their journey. The Cody and Brandi Musket story, No Pit So Deep, should be read by every American who resides under the freedom our military provides every hour of the day and night. Why? Read the following. This is an All-American story; baseball, military heroes’, romance, and the overcoming of demons from our past, that want to dispute the love of an all-knowing God who watches over us. You’ll see the friction of the evil vs good opposing forces in this novel, and the battle endured by many to become of right mind after their military engagement. Many military veterans face this in their waking hours and nightmares at night. Countless lives have been lost because of PTSD and seeing no way out from the abyss. This is a gut-wrenching story of courage under constant never-ceasing fire. The tension in dramatic scenes is emotionally intense with just the right amount of pressure to clarify the action within the story and move it along. Yes, romance lovers, there’s an overriding story of love against the odds as a foundation. When I finished the last word on the final page, I knew I had to read the next novel in the series to know how Cody and Brandi fared in the next novel. I promise you will too. This is one of the best novels I’ve read in this genre. I clearly understand it winning outstanding book accumulates and hope to see it on the wide-screen. James Nathaniel Miller, II – Fiction containing real events, No Pit So Deep (The Cody Musket Story Book 1) by James Nathaniel Miller II, is a must-read for everyone. Highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.

    Small Hearts by Bryan W. Dull takes us on a skillfully written journey that’ll give you chills, and make you cry, but you’ll want to continue reading to the end. A surprising, amazing must-read story for paranormal, suspense and horror enthusiasts. Emily Sinclair, a former educator now living as a recluse, is in a fitful state. She had no other choice but to leave the school after her third-grade students were shot at Marie-Glen Elementary. The anxiety of leaving and facing the people of the town inhabited her thoughts day and night. The nightmares torture her until her brain feels warped and unnatural unlikely to return to normal. Too tired to fight her way out, she gives into the darkness and sinks into the epitome of hell. As her body is submerged into the dreamscape, she hears wailing, then the sound of small voices, and hearts she recognized. She feels the little hands pushing her up and out of the murky confines she’d sunk into. She pleads with them to stop, but their answer was no, she must go on. Standing she realized the landscape and her body had returned to normal. Yet, there was something out there tempting to obstruct the light. Who or what was blocking her way now? You’ll lose yourself in the story hoping the now ghostly children from the school’s massacre will find peace and leave Emily alone. She needs to grieve and come to terms with the deaths of the children, and the loss of her reputation, and her fiancé. The twists and turns in Small Hearts are unexpected and make a meaningful contribution to the overall story. Yes, this is, primarily, a horror novel, with graphic storytelling; however, if readers will give this book a read, you, like me, will want to see this become a number one bestseller. Why? Someone needed to tell this story, and the author does an amazing job with sensitivity to this societal horror. The author, Bryan W. Dull, boldly takes a present nightmare, albeit horror for society, and creates a story with unforgettable fictional characters. His provocative story based on true events sends a strong message about crime in our country and at the same time offers us hope for the future. Brilliantly written and a must-read adult horror fiction. Small Hearts by Bryan W. Dull is highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.

    Not Just Any Old Riches to Rags Story. Heiresses, Evelyn, Georgia and Olivia Belle, nicknamed The Southern Belles by the tabloid press, have everything they’ve ever wanted. Then, suddenly, on Evelyn’s 30th birthday, their father dies in a tragic road traffic accident, leaving a massive hole in his business’ finances. With the world’s media, and the National Crime Agency looking on, their family home, cars and all other assets are sold at auction, leaving the sisters penniless, homeless and jobless. Shunned by their celebrity friends, the Belle sisters must learn to fend for themselves for the first time in their lives. Evelyn, the eldest, knows how dire their situation is, and asks their father’s solicitor, who has kindly paid for their first two months’ rent on a rat-infested bedsit in Brighton, to look into their Father’s case, while they hunt for jobs to make ends meet, which inadvertently leads to them meeting new guys, falling in love, and learning along the way that the world doesn’t owe them a favour, and that money doesn’t buy you happiness.

    Once in a Blue Year begins during the first days of the Gulf War, with two navy barracks roommates remaining onshore as their submarine leaves without them. Unraveling through different points of view in both present action and flashbacks, the story follows Dan, who is conflicted about receiving a medical discharge, and Trevor, who is seething with anger over the incident that forced him to miss his deployment. With nowhere else to go, Dan moves into the home of his friends Nathan and Heather and their young son, James. Meanwhile, Trevor is furious with Nathan, who has managed to volunteer to go to battle in Trevor’s place. But Trevor’s hotheaded temperament has finally caught up to him, and regardless of his skill as a true naval warrior, he’s suddenly been ordered to “stay in.” In Nathan’s absence, Dan is charged with looking after Heather and James as he rebuilds his life, while Trevor struggles with his anger and intimacy issues in his relationship with girlfriend Tara. But before they can move forward, they must both come to terms with the fateful event at sea that changed their lives forever. "In this lyrical debut novel, the lives of two U.S. Navy men take dramatic turns after they’re cut from a submarine mission during the Gulf War… Debut author Durkota writes a remarkable narrative centered on the afflicted mindsets of his Navy men… And while Durkota’s work often feels like a thriller, it’s more of a psychological study in which the characters, like flashes of lightning, are wonderfully alive for a very short time." — Kirkus Reviews

    Once in a Blue Year by Michael Durkota is one of the most mesmerizing books I have ever read. Without looking up Michael Durkota before I started, I knew straight away that he must have been a submariner himself. The descriptions inside the submarine are exquisite to the tiniest detail. Without a doubt I felt like I was there, experiencing for myself: the coffee, the films, the banter, the heat, the lack of fresh air. Really, the author does a tremendous job of drawing you in to the life within a submarine, and more importantly… into the minds of the men on board. Focusing on the mindset of four friends, Michael Durkota spins a delicate depiction of men grappling with life and their need to be loved. Once in a Blue Year is therefore, more than a wonderful psychological drama, it is also a love story. Our main man Dan is not enjoying his life (I felt like he’d lost his way) and ends up being honorably discharged on medical grounds. A blessing and a curse. He now has eight months to find ‘himself’ and start a new life. When his lifelong buddy Nathan, goes to war, Dan moves into his house and helps take care of Heather and baby James. For all to see – it’s a disaster waiting to happen. A man lost and lacking love wraps his heart and soul around a woman who is angry, frightened and lonely. My heart also went out to Trevor, a man with a fortress around his emotions who surprises me at the end with his speech of his perfect understanding of human nature. We don’t get to see his life unfold but I sure hope he got a happy ever after. Jags, the fourth friend, made me laugh out loud on several occasions with his one-liners and I enjoyed the light relief. Michael Durkota is a brilliant writer who has created remarkable characters and a thought-provoking, compelling and memorable story which kept me absorbed from start to finish. With polished writing that ebbs and flows with the grace of the tide, Michael Durkota presents us with his début novel with flourishing finesse. Once in a Blue Year is highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.
