A Must Read Historical Fiction from Author Lee Jackson

When a faceless guerrilla fighter aligned with the resistance to overthrow Castro is pitted against a clever and deceptive Soviet agent, the result is a piece of historical fiction that masterfully blends fact with the exciting story of Eduardo Xiques, better known as Atcho. Exceptionally resourceful, well-trained, capable—Atcho is fully equipped to take on the mission assigned to him, that is until the safety of Isabel, his two year old daughter, is threatened by Govorov, the Soviet agent who will stop at nothing to gain information pertaining to Atcho's identity and whereabouts. Now that Isabel has been kidnapped, Atcho must navigate the treacherous trail leading to her rescue. But in order to save her and fulfill his assignment, he must use all of his specialized training in the process.
Curse the Moon: Atcho Rises is the latest suspenseful novel from author Lee Jackson. This is historical fiction at its finest, thrilling and engaging as it takes the reader along Atcho's journey into the tumultuous world of tenuous national alliances, military reconnaissance, and the struggle for political power. Jackson does a wonderful job of creating a real, multi-dimensional, and dynamic character in the form of Atcho, and his skill with weaving history into the framework of his stories is always evident.

 This is a great reading selection for historical fiction fanatics, especially those with a particular interest in Castro-era Cuba (think Bay of Pigs specifically) and the oft-strained relationship between the US and the Soviet Union. Curse the Moon: Atcho Rises has what you are looking for and comes highly recommended. Find it now in bookstores everywhere.

A Truly Unique Exploration of Religion and Wisdom

Could there ever be a way for us as thinking individuals to truly understand the wisdom of God? What truths are effectively conveyed through the espousal of religious principles around the world? Is there something missing? If you have ever thought seriously about the depth and significance of religion and what it means for us as people, then you will not want to miss Hidden Bible Taboos Forbidden by Organized Christianity, a comprehensive and eye-opening look at religion and associated knowledge by Dr. James Slobodzien.
What started as a series of articles written by Dr. Slobodzien over the span of seven years has evolved into a critical and analytical exploration of organized religion, especially with regard to relatively obscure knowledge of interpretive approaches that may very well help the average reader to better comprehend religion itself apart from the forced dogmatic perspectives of religious, social, and political leaders. Now, that might sound complicated, but in fact Dr. Slobodzien presents us with a fairly accessible reading that covers a wide array of subjects and materials. Using religious texts as his guide, he walks the reader through his fascinating investigation of religion and wisdom with care and provides us with insight into various ideas that have seemingly been dormant or disregarded for centuries. Call it a thoughtful collection of insights.
Although the biased reader might be inclined to write this one off as practically conspiratorial at first glance, the book proves very thorough in its analysis and, at times, more scientific than dogmatic. Dr. Slobodzien, a practicing psychologist, has given us a very unique approach to sacred truths and wisdom, while decrying world leaders (specifically religious authority) for their deliberate obfuscation of greatly significant ideas.

 If you are interested in a distinct perspective on religious ideology and practices, then Hidden Bible Taboos Forbidden by Organized Christianity is a must read. The book is out now, so do not miss out on your chance to partake in this truly enlightening exploration of spiritual wisdom and religion's complexities.

‘Twas the Night After Christmas


The holidays are approaching and I have to admit that I love this time of year. I love the feel of it, the look of it and even the smell of it.
So, when I found out that one of my favorite authors, Sabrina Jeffries, has a book coming out on Oct. 30th and it’s a Christmas Regency romance I was so thrilled! It’s like an early gift!
Sabrina Jeffries’ books are always quaint, quirky, fun, sweet, hot and romantic! Yes, all of that!
This story is about the Earl of Devonmont, Pierce Waverly, who is a scoundrel whose parents abandoned him to school and then relatives. He grows up quite the scoundrel, but you feel such pity for him. He loved him mother so dearly, but she never tried to contact him once he was sent away. It really scarred him.
So, when he receives a message saying she is on her death bed and he must come quickly he drops everything to see his mother one last time.
Upon arriving he finds that his mother’s hired companion, a lovely widow, has exaggerated her condition greatly. The well-meaning woman is trying to make peace, but Pierce is bitter about his past.
The widow, Camilla Stuart is as strong willed as she is well-meaning. But the price the Earl would have to give in to her request may be too much.
The story is about redemption, forgiveness and love. It’s a perfect Christmas story and I highly recommend it as a gift! But, you read it first! It’s a keeper! And it’s every bit as magical as mistletoe!
