First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch by Samuel Ben White

“What if history didn’t happen that way … the first time?”

Garison Fitch was a scientist and something of a celebrity in the Soviet Americas in the early 21st century until dropping off the map to pursue his theories in the remote La Plata Canyon. Living in a log home he built himself (which was too close to the Empire of Japan (30 miles to the west) and the Republic of Texas (15 miles to the south), Garison began to experiment with interdimensional travel.

An experiment with such travel surprised him when he landed him in 1744. There he discovered a primitive world of somewhat suspicious people, but a freedom he had never experienced before–which may have been most frightening of all. As he was trying to discover how to return to the future, he met and fell in love with Sarah, a beautiful young woman who is an outcast due to the fact that it was never known who her father was. They married and had three children and he decided to stay in the past and raise his children with the woman he loved.

When he tried to rid himself of his time machine by sending it into the future, however, it took him with it. Now, he finds himself back in the twenty-first century where a woman (Heather) he has never met claims to be his wife and the country he grew up in is gone, replaced by something called “The United States of America”. He quickly realizes that something he did in the past has changed the future but he doesn’t know what until he stumbles across a strange item in Heather’s purse.

Should he live in this new world, or try to travel once more through time and return the world to “normal”? As he becomes convinced he can’t return to Sarah, he’s not really sure if he can live in this new world he created, either.

One man’s travel through time accidentally created the reality we’re used to.

Gristle by Mark Allen and Derric Miller

 

Book title: Gristle

Book description: Jack Colter let his wife die a brutal death because he was too much of a coward to save her. The tiny mountain town of Vesper Falls knows it, but more importantly, his son Kevin knows it. Haunted by soul-ripping guilt and fiercely despised by his son, Jack turns to the bottle while Kevin turns to crime. But three years behind bars does nothing to dull the hate he feels toward his father.

Desperate to reconnect, Jack takes Kevin on a hunting trip to Scar Lake, arranged by a preacher with his own emotional scars. But there is something wicked in the woods that doesn’t care about emotions—it only cares about death and torment. The hunters become the hunted as small town secrets are dragged from the darkness and Jack finds himself facing an impossible choice as his son’s life hangs in the balance.

Gristle is a brutal, bloody, briskly-paced novel of redemption, sacrifice, and backwoods horror in the classic tradition of The Hills Have Eyes and Wrong Turn.

3) Where people can buy your book via a link

4) Any promotions that you are currently running on your book and

Happy hunting.

Being a Fan

            Earlier today I was reading an article about Stephen Curry. Last night he had bested his record for 3-point shots made in a season, which was a record he set two years ago. The article was good, thought inaccurate on a couple of points.

I even found myself swelling a bit with pride.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not related to Mr. Curry. I have no connection with the man in any way. I’ve just been a fan of his since back when he was playing for Davidson. The pride was something akin to how a papa would be if his own son had accomplished something great and I just wanted to enjoy the moment.

That feeling lasted just long enough for me to scroll down and start reading the comments section at the bottom. What I discovered there was enough to turn my stomach.

It’s the end of the season. Everybody has an opinion as to who they believe should win the MVP this year. And what a year it’s been. With players like LeBron James, James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis, it doesn’t really matter who gets the trophy, because they have all done something special this year, right along with Steph Curry.

The problem isn’t the players, it’s the so called fans.

Time after time I read where one fan tells the world how his favorite player is better than every other player by a mile. Over and over they express their opinions to the world and then explain in the most colorful ways why anyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot.

Of course, the fans of the other players take offense to the first fan’s opinions and derogatory observations. He or she then proceeds to tell off the other fans and gives him the what-fors in a manner that my truck-driving father would have been embarrassed to repeat.

I don’t think I would be terribly concerned if it happened just a time or two. I’m a grown-up and have even spewed a colorful phrase every once in a while when the situation deemed appropriate. But, really, is it necessary to belittle the rest of those who wish to voice a player that they believe is better. Shouldn’t it be perfectly acceptable to have a view different than someone else and not be subjected to the wrath that seems so common today?

I have a point of view and I’m not afraid to express it. I’ll be the first to jump on a bandwagon if I want to promote someone I care about. I can tolerate points of views that are different than my own. What I can’t stand are the people that want to argue just for the sake of being spiteful.

If you decide that my articles are not to your standards. If you think I’m a homer or a nitwit, please…bring it on. I’ll debate with you. I love talking to the true fans of players, teams, cities and countries. If you think that football is more of a sport than those weenie baseball guys who just stand around most of the game, then let’s have at it.

I love the true fan of almost any sport. Sorry, I haven’t been able to get my head around curling as a sport yet. I will, however, walk away from those who just want to argue for argument’s sake.

Let me know what you think. Will we raise a glass together or stare the other down in hopes that I get the pleasure of watching you cry like a little girl.

In the name of sports, win, lose or draw, it’s always best to be around a true fan.

In the beginning…There was Blog

I have been around computers for longer than many of you have been alive. I bought my first computer back in 1978. It was a TRS 80. (That’s Tandy/Radio Shack) It had an 8″ floppy disk; which was back when floppy disks were actually floppy. It had no hard drive. We didn’t even know what hard drives were at that time. And the only thing you could use is for was calculation and spreadsheets. Sometime later, I purchased a Apple IIe with two 5 1/4″ floppy disks (still no hard drive) and thought I has somehow won the lottery of new educational and business devices.

Now, all these years later, I sit at my desk and seldom remember the simplistic nature of the computers gone by. Back then, computer were mesmerizing. They were instruments of possibilities. They were hope for the future. They brought joy to an otherwise drab existence. They were a blessing.

As I rummage through my mind, I don’t remember the first time I heard the word blogger. I didn’t know what a blog was or even why anyone would want to do it. Now, it’s an important part of my existence. Without blogs, how could i reach people like you all over the world? How would you know that I write mystery novels and that they are really entertaining? Everything that we used to take for granted has passed and we must now embrace this new world of communication and the methods by which it will be done.

I don’t know what the future holds, but i do know that whatever new methods developed, I will be a part of it.

I ask that you read my blogs and check out my books. After all, if I didn’t tell you about them, how would you know that they are great works of art.
