Enchantment’s Reach

by Martin Ash

Set in a world where the fabulous and the unexpected have become the norm.

In this world, anything is possible…

The small kingdom of Enchantment’s Reach lies close on the border of the mysterious land of Enchantment from where strange energies seep, borne invisibly on unnatural breezes. Untamed ‘magic’ resides in the air, in the land itself, and sometimes also deep within the minds of its inhabitants.

It is a time of immense tension. Enchantment’s Reach is being torn apart from both inside and out. From the southwest have come the Karai, a brutal warrior race not wholly human, one of whose armies now musters just a few leagues from the border. The Karai are in league, it appears, with mysterious entities who dwell within Enchantment itself, commanding awesomely powerful technologies and commonly held to have the powers of gods. Yet neither the Karai nor these godlike creatures of Enchantment have been known before to interfere directly in the affairs of lesser creatures.

What do they seek from Enchantment’s Reach?

Further dangers beset the small kingdom. Perilous internal as well as external conflicts threaten its King, Leth, his beautiful young queen, Issul, and the people of the Reach. Ancient religious factions are resurgent, fanatical cults revive old feuds and rise to threaten the throne, and somewhere deep within Enchantment’s Reach itself a mysterious creature appears, an inhabitant of some other dimension, seeming secretly to wield unusual influence over King Leth.

The world is on a knife’s edge…

Ahead lie treacherous intrigues both human and otherworldly, and a desperate quest into lands of warring ‘gods’, into dimensions previously uncontacted, and into the depths of profound technologies and unconscious creation in search of keys to mysteries dark, enigmatic and profound.

The Widow’s Son

by Bruce Robb Steinberg

Enjoy the music, politics, fashion, televison and movie fare of the 1960s.

Based on the real life loss of the author’s father, Bruce Steinberg brings his passionate tale home as told through the eyes of his oldest brother – a child on the cusp of manhood who does not easily take to wearing the crown of New Man of the House.

The moment 12-year-old Jeremy Rosenberg witnesses his father’s death, Jeremy loses the world he assumed would last forever. With a young brother expecting their father to yet come home, a sister blaming herself, and a mother falling toward isolation, Jeremy is sent fatherless into the world just as he enters adolescence. Beautifully and memorably set in mid-1960s Chicago suburbia, The Widow’s Son is launched on a devastating moment. But this tale of misguided efforts and accidental triumphs of children forced into adult emotions creates a humorous, poignant novel. The reader’s laughter and tears are sure to flow together to the last page as Jeremy battles to make his family into a family once again.


by Marie Chow

How do you tell your child that you won’t be there when they grow up? UNWELL is the raw, honest story of a mother who writes to her unborn child, sharing her decision of choosing not to be a mother. She doesn’t choose abortion. Nor does she consider adoption. Instead, she decides to give her child a fighting chance in life, without the angst and drama that’s shaped her own bittersweet life.

With a poignant lack of emotion, the young mother shares her life story. As the child of Asian parents who moved to America early in her life, the mother shares how her life disintegrated after her parents’ divorce. From upper middle class suburban to sharing her mean aunt’s house to a one bedroom apartment in a shabby neighborhood, this mother endures the indignity that comes with the change of status. From her father’s absence to her mother becoming a married man’s mistress, her story reads like a tragic Victorian novel set in the 21st century, but that’s where the similarity ends—she is definitely not a shy country miss and she certainly did not take the easy way out.

This amazing story chronicles the life of a woman who fought for everything she got, faced her demons and made the hard choices. Her fortitude and candor are disarming, her avant-garde views strangely endearing. You’ve never read a book like this and probably never will again. Get your copy today and take the literary journey of a lifetime. Through this glimpse into the life of a woman of integrity, sacrifice and love, you’ll feel her pain, live her failures and cheer for the meager joys that come her way. But the one thing you’ll never do… is forget her. Or her story.
