Malak, Desert Child – Book Tour and Giveaway

Malak, Desert Child
The Boy Who Sailed to Spain Book 2
by Paul Ogarra 
Genre: Magical Realism Fiction
 
The first time I saw her she melted the ice in my soul.
Malak is a tiny beautiful five-year-old girl child. She lives in a cave in
dire poverty with her drunkard father and her Saharoui mother and
sister. Her enemies are all the towns children who victimize her and
her sister because of their race and condition. Her only friend is a
single mother named Latifa, and Malak´s grandmother Jeeda Hazzah who
dies of cancer.
But Malak is the champion of her family against a violent father and the
children of the Zoco who she fights singlehandedly. This is a magical
and often mystical story of a young girl and the people she stumbles
upon, as she is rushed away by her uncertain destiny, to the land in
which her mother was born, the Sahara Desert. The unravelling of
Malak’s story is also the unsnarling of the web of intrigue
surrounding the North of Africa, and it´s peoples and history, and
the reasons for many current dilemmas in this land of witchcraft and
mystery.
The  tale begins in earnest when a wandering ex-warrior happens on the
child and is struck by her magnificent courage and beauty. After a
significant episode with her drunken father and his cronies, having
interceded on the family´s behalf, he flees with them on a stolen
high-speed cruiser heading for Western Sahara and freedom. In the
course of their errant journey, they are taken into threatening
custody by the Algerian police. Malak´s personality and mystic
nature make of her the flux in an adventure which begins as a race to
return her to her maternal grandfather´s family. A flight of mercy
will become a race against time as Malak and her friends take on the
impossible. In this, they enlist the help of many tribespeople. Some
tribes known to all and others lost in the wastes of the mysterious
desert and the annals of history.The story comes to an emotional and
pent up conclusion in the least expected possible fashion.

Paul O´Garra was born in Gibraltar on the 8th May 1952. Paul and his three siblings were the
children of
schoolteachers and were reared with English discipline, immersed in romantic
literature on the one hand, and a large local family of uncles,
aunts, cousins and a doting grandmother, who was Spanish from Cadiz,
on the other.
Childhood was spent roaming across the Up South,
Rosia
and Europa point areas of Gibraltar engaging in childish games and
adventures, reading
extensively books such as Enid Blyton’ adventure series, ‘Famous Five,
‘Secret Seven
,’ ‘Swallows and Amazons Forever,’ John Buchan and the ‘Gorbals Die-hards.
Saturday mornings were a day for avoiding the displeased grimaces of
monocled and overweight colonels, delving and searching through the shelves of the old
Garrison library to discover new horizons, characters
and
stories. The journey of discovery that had begun with Baba the
Elephant eventually began to grow richer as the classics
were devoured.
In 1967, he looked on as fellow students of Jewish persuasion prepare to leave for Tel Aviv
to defend Israel. Shortly after, the
arrival of General Moshe Dayan at the gates of Cairo, signaled to the world
that Israel´s direst moment had
been overcome. Paul, at the earliest time
possibleset off in a steamer from Tangiers, sailing to Southampton.
After a spell
in Londonhe left the UK to discover his roots in Malta.
He alternated callings as a tour guide of Morocco and recoverer of
broken down rented cars in the desert, tour guide of south Spain and
eventually running a flamenco club on the Costa del Sol, in the days
when the Costa was still a new and exciting place to visit.
Eventuallyhe set off again to discover new places in the Middle, the Far
East and the
Philippines, and when Perestroika and Glasnost finally arrived at the hands of
Mihail Gorbacheff and the Soviet Union was open, set off to discover
the East there. He studied Russian at St Petersburg and spent time
travelling to the Republic of Udmurtia, Kazan, Siberia and up an
uncharted river to meet Tribes that still lived in the area. Later to
Nizhny Novgorod and the South Volga, then to
the Ukraine travelling from city to city,
falling more and more in love with the great Russian writers and
painters as he went. Seventeen years ago at the age of fifty, Paul
contracted renal
cancer.
He was operated on successfully at the Bullfighters Hospital in
Pamplona in North Spain. Metastasis was practically impossible the
surgeons happily reported. Two years later
the cancer metastasised to his lungs on which
he
was duly operatedand half of his lungs were removed.
Later for reasons undefined he suffered strokes in both eyes and lost
partial sight in one eye and total in the left which he duly
recovered by swimming and praying. Seventeen years have gone by since
the renal cancer
was first discovered, and seven years since his last operation and
everything is fine, remission seems to be total.
Paul’s still swims at least one or two kilometres per day all year round,
travels, practises martial arts and fervently believes that the Lord
leads him by the hand. After leaving the
hospital
he spent some time in Tangiers, hairless, gaunt and on crutches, but
enjoying the warmth and affection of many new friends there. Then off
to Prague to study filmmaking, made several shorts but finally
decided that he would first write and then make movies when the time came.

A Scientist’s Remorse – Book Tour and Giveaway

A Scientist’s Remorse
Prequel to Memories of Chronosalis
by Ceara Comeau
Genre: Science Fantasy
 
Darmentraea became a prison, Galaseya a thriving Utopia; Diraetus finally found
peace, and Heirsha provided healing to all. Amber and her friends had
adjusted to their new roles in life when an unexpected surprise
appeared on Heirsha–A secret truth. One that could shed light on the
mysteries surrounding the immortal families.
Why so much bitterness? What happened between Jermiar and Huntinylar?
What secrets does Marsacor conceal behind his coarse exterior? Who is
the mysterious family member that no one seems to want to talk about?
And why were both families plagued by constant tragedy? One
answer–Khyra Crawford.
Two thousand years before Amber’s story began, Khyra was a brilliant
young environmental scientist who wanted her world to be clean from
man’s pollution. Her father, a world-renowned chemist, had an idea of
his own and created a devastating chemical that nearly exterminated
all of mankind. She fought hard to repair the damages her father
created. Not to mention take back her life from the one that his
transgressions against humanity made for her. But in doing so, she
found herself dragged into a web of lies, danger, and otherworldly
chaos, and a destiny that wasn’t hers to alter.
This  is the REAL story, one that should have never been told.
**THIS IS NOT A STAND ALONE BOOK!
MUST BE READ AFTER MEMORIES OF CHRONOSALIS!**
 
 
 
 
Memories of Chronosalis
by Ceara Comeau
 
It’s one thing to read about heroes saving worlds in far off galaxies,
but to become one is an entirely different story. Sixteen-year-old
Amber Oak wanted nothing more than to stay in her own world of music
and solitude. But the inhabitants of Galaseya, a Utopian planet
rooted in the past, had other ideas in mind. According to them, only
she wielded the power to stop the dark forces threatening their home.
At first, Amber sympathized with the planet, but saw no reason to
involve herself in the affairs of something outside her world. But
the stakes have risen when she discovers that Galaseya is not only
the world that has been invading her dreams, but also the place her
estranged family originated from. With this new knowledge, questions
began to surface and secrets of Amber’s life come to light causing
her to second guess everything she knows.
 
 
I’ve been writing stories since I can remember. Stories, I thought, were
just for children my age and I did not think they would go far. At
fifteen years old, I was proven wrong. My parents took a look at my
stories and saw something in them that I could not see. They saw the
potential of a good book, or two! 
With my Dad as the editor and my Mom doing the formatting, we
self-published these books. I did not think anyone, other than my
family, would want to read the ramblings of a young teenager. When we
published “Amber Oak Mysteries Volume 1” and “Adventures
of the Young and Curious,” I was fifteen years old, then the
unexpected happened. People would write to me and they told me how
much they loved my books.
During the time, when I was seventeen, I stopped writing. I lost faith in
myself and my ability to write. But , my mom suggested that we
publish my third book, for it had been sitting on the shelf for about
two years. She thought it would be good to get it out there, before I
started college. I did not see what harm it could do, so my third
book, “Amber Oak Mysteries Volume 2” was published. In 2012
I published “Amber Oak and the Missing Links”. I went on to
publish “Amber Oak and the Master of Illusions”. In 2015 I
published something different call “The Lost Journal of Erika
Traynor”. These is currently available on lulu.com, amazon.com
and barnesandnoble.com.
Recently I realized I needed to go back and redo the original Amber Oak
Mystery series. It had potential, but I knew I could do better. It
will be different than the originals as it focuses more on science
fiction and fantasy rather than mystery. The title of the book is
“Memories of Chronosalis”.

BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable
characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a
Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

Of Sound Mind and Someone Else’s Body – Book Tour and Giveaway

Of Sound Mind and Someone Else’s Body
by William Quincy Belle 
Genre: SciFi Romantic Comedy
 
Alan Maitland is a successful businessman on his way up the corporate
ladder. Life is good, but life is also full of the unexpected. A
scientific experiment goes awry and Alan’s mind is transferred to
the body of Hana Toussaint, a high-class escort. Suddenly, he must
not only contend with a new identity, but with the eye-opening
experience of living as a female: how to walk in high heels without
falling; how to put on a bra without dislocating a shoulder; how to
deal with makeup without poking out an eye; and how to get along in a
society which in many ways is still male-dominated.
When Alan discovers that Hana has taken over his body, the two of them
must work together to find the scientist who can reverse the
experiment and give them back their respective lives. Along the way,
they must cope with living as each other and learn what it’s like to
be a member of the opposite sex. And as their adventure goes on, Alan
the woman must figure out his growing feelings for Hana the man.
Alan faces the biggest challenge of his life which Hana sums up with one
decisive question:
Are you man enough to be a woman?”
 
 
William Quincy Belle is just a guy. Nobody famous; nobody rich; just some guy
who likes to periodically add his two cents worth with the hope,
accounting for inflation, that $0.02 is not over evaluating his
contribution. He claims that at the heart of the writing process is
some sort of (psychotic) urge to put it down on paper and likes to
recite the following, which so far he hasn’t been able to attribute
to anyone: “A writer is an egomaniac with low self-esteem.”
You will find Mr. Belle’s unbridled stream of consciousness floating
around in cyberspace.
