By the Waters of Babylon

We are excited to congratulate Christopher Farrar on the release of his new book, By the Waters of Babylon, which is now available for purchase at retailers worldwide!

When twelve-year-old Ya’el is taken prisoner by the -Babylonians, her ability to write saves her life. A girl scribe, unique in the -Empire, she’s destined for slavery in the palace of king -Nebuchadnezzar. Days later, her ruined city of Jerusalem is far behind. She struggles to survive on the long brutal trek, while strange dreams disturb her sleep. Her impulsiveness and -passion for learning earn her hostility from fellow prisoners and murderous hatred from Babylonian guards. Desperate to avoid her looming fate, she’s forced to confront her own complicity in the vitriol directed at her. And the dreams are getting stranger.

Mirrors

Mirrors by Phillip A. Weaver is now available for purchase at retailers worldwide! 

WALTON MIRRORS INC. produces some of the finest mirrors in the country, but their reflections hold a dark secret. The mirrors are gateways between this world and that of the cursed. When blood is spilled and God is mentioned, a twisted reflection emerges to claim the soul of the viewer.

What would it take before you began to believe the unbelievable? When the doors of perception have been flung open and everything you know is distorted, how far would you go to bring yourself back to a safe reality?

Your reflection is no longer you, but an unstoppable evil—a collector of souls.

The veil is thin. Be careful.

Lest Darkness Prevail (The Chikondra Trilogy Book 3)

Lest Darkness Previal: Dare to Live the Light by Sandra Valencia is now available for purchase

In the gripping finale of the award-winning Chikondra Trilogy, time dramatically alters the focus of Chikondra’s Minister Sirinoya and his Terran lifemate, Sandra. Challenges force the couple to blend the responsibilities of unification and family with their unique combination of skill and experience in statesmanship.

Meanwhile, history careens along a perilous path. Dedicated diplomats confront growing risks as they doggedly pursue peaceful initiatives. Warily monitoring events that threaten the worlds they serve, leaders conclude that the strategies of a shadowy enemy are working to undermine the stability of the Dil-Terra Interplanetary Alliance. Confident that the elusive Zeteron Empire is on the verge of shifting to an open challenge, many Alliance leaders see disaster looming in the near future. Under the shadow of this threat, questions arise over the union’s will to resist an apparent march toward galactic war.

Dark times create doubt in the minds of even the most faithful of Chikondra’s spiritual guides. When an old fairy tale is recalled, they realize that bits and pieces of the unsettling present appear oddly similar to the ancient legend. Does coincidence play games with the enchanted story? Or does this fable ring bells of warning?

A Business Notion Put in Motion

A Business Notion Put in Motion: The Wit and Wisdom of Jim Whitacre is available for purchase at retailers worldwide! 

In the early 1970s, Jim Whitacre was an established senior CPA and he turned his attention toward helping young accountants entering the business world for the first time. The young recruits were sharp with accounting skills but totally green in the ways of business. Jim had an idea to write a poem about starting a business and the various challenges a young entrepreneur might encounter. That idea was the origin of this book.

“This book is brilliant and highly entertaining! I can see businesses giving this to their employees, and high school and college teachers having their students read and study this book as a great introduction to the business world. I also highly recommend this book to ordinary folks (like myself) who want to easily learn about how businesses are grown and be entertained at the same time.” -Amazon Reviewer

Dear Disappeared Dad by Bette Millat

Dear Disappeared Dad by Bette Millat is available at bookstores worldwide!

Grab your copy from a major retailer or from your favorite bookseller!

Fourteen-year-old Amber Wilcox’s life is derailed when she finds out her mom has lied about what happened to her dad. Amber’s already hard-to-control temper goes into overdrive when she realizes her dad isn’t dead, as she has been told, but that he disappeared when she was four.

Amber is determined to track down her dad and demand answers. Her best friend, Chloe Maddox, agrees to help since she knows her way around a computer, the same way Amber, an artist, knows her way around a portrait. Together they combine their skills and develop a website to hunt for information about Amber’s missing dad.

Meanwhile, Amber faces mounting pressure at school as two former friends begin to bully her. When her temper snaps, she fights back and risks expulsion. As if a missing dad and two school bullies aren’t enough for one fourteen-year-old to manage, Amber’s family life begins to shift with each new discovery about her parents’ past. Her relationship with her mom is threatened—a rift between them caused by years of her mom’s lies.

Will the demands of trying to track down a missing dad send Amber and Chloe into dangerous territory (and back to the principal’s office) and push Amber away from her mom, or will the two friends stay out of trouble, solve the mystery, and heal the hole in Amber’s heart where her dad should be?

In the Shadows: A Story About Standing Strong Together

We are happy to announce that In the Shadows: A Story About Standing Together by Carol Patricia Richardson is now available for purchase at retailers worldwide!

Find your copy at a major retailer or request it from your favorite bookstore!

Blue Baxter turns twelve in 1954 just as the school year ends, and she settles in for a long, lazy summer vacation.

But when backyard garden vegetables begin to mysteriously disappear in the night, Blue’s investigation leads to the discovery of three “illegal” migrant worker kids hiding in a tool shed. They’re on the run from border patrol agents and fearful of taking help from strangers who might turn them in.

Determined to do what’s right, Blue enlists the help of her GramZees, the one person Blue trusts to speak her mind, even when it means facing down hate and prejudice.

But doing the right thing means hard choices are ahead for Blue and her family. Going against the law, their neighbors, and white supremacists puts everyone in jeopardy as they race against time to find the migrant children’s grandmother in hopes of giving them a haven from deportation.

As tensions rise in town, border patrol agents and white supremacist vigilantes close in. Blue finds herself coming of age in the midst of a historic moment, caught between what is right and what is safe.

Intentional Manhood: A Coach’s Perspective by Mike Stanley

Mike Stanley’s new book, Intentional Manhood: A Coach’s Perspective is now available for purchase!

Although we hear repeatedly that we should live as Godly men, rarely are we taught what actionable steps we can take to honor Jesus, or frankly, what “manhood” even means. So we drift through life and never reach our full potential.

Intentional Manhood is told with the authority and no-excuses attitude that come from Coach Mike Stanley’s 50 years as a coach, combined with the compassion and relatability of his perspective as a man acutely aware of his own flaws. Within these pages Coach Stanley will:

• Encourage you to find your Goal, Guide, and Game Plan for life.
• Inspire you to fulfill your Unique Calling to provide for and protect your family.
• Help you See Clearly the Sacred Mission you have been entrusted with by Almighty God Himself.
• Reinforce the truth that no one can live as an Intentional Man without the power of the Holy Spirit.
