Featured Book - The Unopened Letter:  A Dose of Reality Changes a Young Man's Life Forever by RW Herman

theunopenedlettermed1.jpg
The Unopened Letter is a coming-of-age story set in the mid-1960s. A period in U.S. history when tensions registered in the "red" zone for 27 million young men. Why? Because if you were between the ages of 18 and 25 and had followed the law to register with the Selective Service System, you were fair game to be drafted. You'd most likely be sent to Southeast Asia to fight in a hugely controversial war. Unlike during previous actions, military service members now not only risked their lives but often found themselves cold-shouldered by their fellow Americans. 

This book is a very personal account of a young man who, when he received his letter, decided not to open it, thus shaping his destiny while remaining committed to serving his country--aboard a U.S. Navy ship. It's a story that will make you laugh, cry, and leave you filled with hope.

Featured Book - Araya by E. Detorres

araya.jpgEllis leads his Gundogs into Hell’s Heart, the forest that heeds its own gods and spits on the laws of men, to hunt Gluttons and shred their armour. But the deadly prey is not all they must contend with—Ellis’ Gundogs must battle The Song of the forest, and when The Song casts its rhythm into their bones, self-slaughter and murder are the only thoughts the Gundogs have left. In Hell’s Heart, the trees are lord and master. 

Dram, an imperious soldier commanding the forces of Spectre Alliance, appears in the Gundogs’ mountain stronghold at the moment when Ellis is fighting off The Song. Dram promises Ellis riches if he will venture into Hell’s Heart and use his specialist skills to retrieve a weapon that could end the war. Ellis accepts, knowing he must use all his training to endure The Song and get his Gundogs home. But as his mind disintegrates in the forest, he slowly succumbs to the madness spilling from the trees.

Araya is a work about the fragility of the mind and how emotional resilience can lead an individual to achieve great feats. It is a story of friendship and love, loss and madness, and that delicate balance between light and darkness which reminds us that we are made of flesh, and all flesh is doomed to die. A thriller about the human condition that explores the tyrannical hand emotions have over our decisions and quality of life, with prose that emphasises: we must be great with the time that we have.

Gundogs race against time in Hell’s Heart, because with every passing second the forest tightens its noose and sharpens its blade.

Featured Book - Lines in the Sand:  An American Soldier's Journey in Iraq by F. Scott Service

linesinthesand.jpgFor F. Scott Service, a five-minute phone call one peaceful morning was all it took. Faced with the terrible dichotomy of his moral opposition to war and an innate sense of duty, little did he realize that when he was called for deployment in Iraq that his would be the journey of a lifetime. 

A tour of duty destined to change him forever.

Witnessing the violence of a country ravaged by chaos and facing the disintegration of his life back home, his sojourn in Iraq forced him to fight a new battle, a battle within himself. What had once been a noble intention became a desperate struggle to salvage what was left of his humanity, an excursion into the darkest recesses of the human mind that ultimately led him to question everything he had come to believe.

Pushed to the edge, only then would he discover what lay within.

Author F. Scott Service recounts his wartime experience within an artfully lyrical epistolary composition. Transcribed from the handwritten journals he kept while overseas, Lines in the Sand is a powerful exercise in self-exploration amid heart-wrenching loss and anguish.
