This is book four in the John Hardin suspense series (Guns, Diamondback, and Kllrs).

John Hardin is the WITSEC identity of a pilot who runs a shoestring aerial photography business flying his Cessna out of Asheville, North Carolina. He’s restoring a log home on Eaglenest Ridge overlooking the Great Smokies village of Maggie Valley, and does house repairs to augment his income.

He shares his place with an octogenarian couple, Hank and Hattie Gaskill, escapees from a depressing rest home, and he has an independent Cherokee girlfriend, Kitty Birdsong, who rides her own lipstick-red motorcycle.

A burly biker friend of theirs, Brandon Doyle, runs afoul of a drug lord who wholesales synthetic analogs of cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy. John and Kitty try to help Doyle, and all three suddenly find themselves in a mortal struggle against the drug kingpin and his legendary hit man named after those executioners of centuries past, the professional traveling beheaders and hangmen known as the deathsmen.

The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek by Vincent James Vezza

FriesenPress
$24.99, paperback
ISBN: 978-1-4602-7729-4
July, 2015
Fiction: Historical
Available from your local bookstore or www.Amazon.com

Vincent James Vezza, writing as Jackson Badgenoone, published The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek through FriesenPress. The central character, James, believing that he sees gold, recovers instead an old bayonet buried under the shimmering waters of Dutch Buffalo Creek. The bayonet is a catalyst that drives James to sift through a lifetime of artifacts and bittersweet memories—and imagine a glimpse of the future.

The book contains ten translucent memoirs layered in historical fiction. It explores the cause and consequences of conflict. Faith, hope, and love emerge as forces that overcome the challenges encountered by a tightly knit clan. An Heirloom edition contains resources that amplify character point of view.

Jackson Badgenoone draws her first name from several figures that she is destined to observe during the span of several generations. One was an outspoken President, another a famous general. Badgenoone acquired her last name as a consequence of her never born status. She applied for an identity as Badge Number One. She is granted a play on words status, badge-no-one.

She serves as narrator and ghost writer. Jackson also manages nine other kindred spirits responsible for recording the lives of ten ordinary souls. Ghost writers and characters interact in a playful setting.

The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek is framed in current day Cabarrus County, North Carolina. Prompted by a discovery in 2014 AD, the story unfolds with a series of flashbacks that lead the central character back to the creek at the end of that year of reflection. There he discovers real treasure that he hopes to share with his readers.

The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek is the first of several works scheduled for publication. More about the series and the book can be found at www.hiddentreasurenovels.com.

The first son of a career military officer and his war bride, Vincent spent his formative years on US Army bases around the world. He came of age during the turbulent sixties. With an undergraduate major in Political Science and a MSEd, he embarked on a career in educational publishing and technology. He led several marketing initiatives at Apple Computer, Inc., before assuming senior management duties at Sunburst Technology, a division of Houghton Mifflin, followed by a stint as SVP at Films Media Group. Threads from his education, career, and life experience find a way into his debut novel, The Hidden Treasure of Dutch Buffalo Creek.

Available from the publisher

Limited 30th Anniversary Edition!

"In the thirty years since the first publication of The Open Eye, Lenard D. Moore has lived a life that has contained a full range of the possibilities of what it is to be a human, a poet, a man. He has achieved significant triumphs and suffered horrific losses. What has remained consistent throughout this time has been his willingness to embrace his circumstances and to move forward. This steadfastness is nowhere more evident than in his haiku. The Open Eye is where we first encounter the man he is. Then and now, we are not disappointed."
—Jim Kacian, President The Haiku Foundation

"Lenard D. Moore is an important haiku practitioner who is extremely economical in using words to convey the meaning beyond imagery, and The Open Eye is an excellent collection of haiku that leads the reader to experience what the poet sees, hears, feels, smells, and touches in four seasons."
—John Zheng, editor of African American Haiku: Cultural Visions

An established poet in many genres, Lenard D. Moore is also one of the foremost writers of English-language haiku. His first collection, The Open Eye, appeared thirty years ago and provides an excellent snapshot of haiku in the 1980s while also resonating with elements of haiku written today. In addition to the original foreword by Lorraine Ellis Harr, this limited 30th anniversary edition includes an introduction by Haiku Foundation President, Jim Kacian, which considers Moore’s poems in the context of the last few decades of haiku history. The Open Eye was designed by Jonathan Greene and features a cover photograph by Dobree Adams.

the autumn moon moves

the eastward trail, snow
the westward trail, snow

In the process of solving the crime, Penny and Detective Inspector Kenneth Morgan are powerfully attracted.

En Otro Oz: Poems by Chantel Acevedo

Finishing Line Press
$14.49, paperback
January, 2016
Poetry
Available for pre-order from the publisher

“Chantel Acevedo's visionary poems bring Cuba to life in a new way. Like a powerful chant, they cry out for understanding, telling a story of isolation. This is a gorgeous collection, glowing with wistful magic.”
—Margarita Engle, PEN USA Award-winning author of The Lightning Tree, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Surrender Tree

“In this transcendent series of poems, the reader spins through a series of gorgeously aching images that, together, depict the kind of displacement we so desperately try to understand through the tales we tell ourselves. In Acevedo’s masterful hand, Frank L. Baum’s Dorothy becomes Dorotéa, her exile transformed from a Technicolor fantasy to a frantic journey towards freedom, threatened by the very real and 'terrible possibilities of blood.' These poems stun and startle, revealing the reality behind the heavy curtains of the stories we create to convince ourselves of safety: too often, there is no way to return, because home is as much of a fairy tale as the city of Oz.”
—Emma Bolden, author of Malificae

Working with material from The Wizard of Oz, the collection reimagines Cuba as a kind of magical world, technicolored and yet fraught with danger.

Chantel Acevedo’s novels include Love and Ghost Letters (St. Martin's Press), which won the Latino International Book Award and was a finalist for the Connecticut Book of the Year; Song of the Red Cloak, a historical novel for young adults; A Falling Star (Carolina Wren Press), winner of the Doris Bakwin Award and National Bronze Medal IPPY Award; and The Distant Marvels (Europa Editions).

Her fiction and poetry have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and have appeared in Prairie Schooner, American Poetry Review, North American Review, and Chattahoochee Review, among others.

Acevedo is currently an Associate Professor of English in the MFA Program of the University of Miami.

Every day, I walk and talk and hug with residents. I feel like I make a difference in their lives, providing an ear to a story, a shoulder for a lonely day, or just a good ole fashion hug. BUT, after reading Here We Go Joe, it opened my eyes to see that each resident has their own stories, trials, and tribulations. I thank Cora not only for opening my eyes, but for her insight and compassion in sharing Joe's journey and reminding us all to look beyond the obvious."

I can understand a lot of his attitudes because I have seen so much of it in my mother, and I do find some of it in myself."
—Marilyn Kane, Joe's sister

On Point: A Guide to Writing the Military Story by Tracy Crow

University of Nebraska Press/Potomac Books
$19.95, hardcover
ISBN: 978-1-61234-709-7
September, 2015
Nonfiction: Creative Writing
Available from your local bookstore or www.Amazon.com

“Both useful and graceful. . . . This book is essential for those who want to share their perspective on the growth, the ironies, the emotions, and the fundamental truths of the military experience.”
—Janet Burroway, author of Writing Fiction: A Guide to Narrative Craft

“A great tool for veterans, military service members, military family members, and for instructors of creative writing.”
—Brian Turner, author of My Life as a Foreign Country

“The world needs Tracy Crow’s writing guide because no other book has been written specifically for military veterans with stories to share. The advice is solid, her examples relevant, and her approach inspirational.”
—Lee Barnes, author of Gunning for Ho and When We Walked Above the Clouds: A Memoir of Vietnam

Personal writing can be risky for anyone, but for military veterans, especially those suffering from post-traumatic stress, sharing stories can trigger painful and disturbing flashbacks. Writing is also risky for the ego. It is one thing to write a military story, especially one based on authentic experiences; it is quite another to muster the courage to share that story with others for critique and feedback.

Award-winning journalist and author Tracy Crow presents a roadmap for writing an authentic, persuasive military story. Drawing from her personal experiences and those of other veteran writers, and from the insights of noteworthy writing and teaching professionals, On Point is the guide Crow wishes she’d had when she first began writing about her military experience. No previous writing guide specifically addresses the unique challenges and rewards facing soldiers who want to craft their military story with courage and candor.

Tracy Crow is the author of the award-winning memoir, Eyes Right: Confessions from a Woman Marine; a military conspiracy thriller, An Unlawful Order, under her pen name Carver Greene; a true story collection, Red, White, & True: Stories from Veterans and Families, WWII to Present; and the new writing text On Point: A Guide to Writing the Military Story, in which Crow combines her skills and experience as a former Marine Corps officer, award-winning military journalist, author, editor, and professor of creative writing.

September, 2015
Available from your local bookstore or www.Amazon.com

"To Joseph Mills a glass of wine reveals a little of 'the almost infinite risk in being who we are.' Angels, Thieves, and Winemakers is, then, a collection of revelations, truths to be found in and about wine. Witty, mordant, melancholy, funny, these bright poems fix and illumine the many moods we may encounter in a bottle of happy red. I shall recommend this volume most heartedly, saying, 'Here, I think this / will help make things a little better.'"
—Fred Chappell, former North Carolina poet laureate

“...it is a must-have for all wine lovers. No ideology here, just perspective. Mills has a keen sense for why wine is so improbably important to so many of us, and on page after page, the wine lover will say, 'Oh yes, that's me.'"
—Dave McIntyre, Washington Post

“In writing about wine, Joe's sensitivity, humility, creativity, and imagery are perhaps the closest I've come to experiencing wine, without actually drinking it.”
—Nikitas Magel from VintnerReviews
