Title: Place of Crying
Author: Judy Witt
Publisher: XLibrisAU
Genre: Historical Fiction
Format: Ebook
INKABA YAKHO IPHI? (WHERE IS YOUR NAVEL?) Three stories—those of the Xhosa and the Khoikhoi tribes, the British soldiers and the settlers, and the burghers and the Boers—are told in parallel. Her Khoikhoi mother, had named her Coti after the wife of Cagn, the supreme god of the San people. Her skin shone like gold, the skin of the San. He had been watching as she bathed in the lagoon, blinded by her sleek beauty as she stepped out. The fading sunlight on the water drops covered her golden skin like jewels. Coti gasped when she saw him. He was Tshane, great-great-grandson of a Xhosa chief and named after one of the first Rharhabe Xhosa kings or paramount (supreme) chiefs. His mother was from the Gcaleka Xhosa clan. Tshane represented the amaXhosa, the fierce people of Xhosa. He was magnificent as he stood still and tall—a warrior, black as ebony; his toned muscles rippled. He was nervous. She was not afraid of him. She prayed now to the wise and powerful Tsui-Goab, the Khoi supreme god, to protect her from Guanab, the cunning god of evil. Her grandmother had warned that this was an evil love, brought about by the trickster god, Haitsa-Aibib. Haitsa-Aibib could change his form at will. Was he the fish eagle that had thrown the cloud over her? Lt. Ian Bentley sat his horse on a hill overlooking the coastal foothills of the Amatola Mountains. From his position, he had a good view of the sea and also the Xhosa village below him. It was baking hot under the African sun, and he looked forward to the cool evening. He sweated in his thick red tunic, made for cooler climates, and his horse fidgeted from the flies. Taking his eyeglass from his tunic, he focused on the village below. Conraad du Randt, the burghers’ leader, raised his arm for silence. ‘Yes, my people. First, they free the slaves and tell us to pay them. Now they have equality before the law? These heathens are our subordinates, damned in the eyes of God! Given to us to teach them Christian ways! Our land! Our lifestyle! Is God-given and earned by conquest!’

Title: The Holy Spirit Will Deliver You
Author: Patricia L. Loranger
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Religious
Format: Ebook
Does it seem you just cannot win the battle over the devil? Are you battling the temptation to sin or hiding secret sins from your church and family? Do you find it difficult to participate in church groups or struggle to pray and read the Bible?
When we think of deliverance, we think of salvation, but this is only the first step. Deliverance is receiving freedom, and many Christians need freedom from their loaded baggage of sin. We say the sinner’s prayer and we think that’s it—we’ve got our deliverance. But this is just the beginning. Some Christians struggle their whole lives with temptation; they need deliverance, and there are so few deliverance ministries out there. The Holy Spirit Will Deliver You offers hope and guidance toward relief and redemption. With the aid of the Holy Spirit, author Patricia L. Loranger undertook two lengthily spiritual deliverances, in which she cast a large number of evil spirits out of herself. She knows that through the aid of God’s Spirit that dwells within, all believers can set themselves free from the chains that bind them.
Based on one woman’s personal experiences and grounded in scripture, this guide provides Christians seeking deliverance with answers and steps to take toward their ultimate freedom.

Q: What’s inside the mind of a political thriller author?

A: In our hyper-polarized 2018 political climate, where any discussion of politics can quickly turn toxic, my primary thought is, there must be a better way. This current partisan rancour can’t continue. We seem to be rapidly approaching a time where the country is either going to explode or find a way to heal itself. Manipulated explores an alternative reality where that healing process begins. It is an outlet to provide a glimmer of hope in what appears to be a hopeless situation. It dares to ask, what if we didn’t settle for two firmly entrenched political parties but instead forged a third path out of this abyss. What if?

Q: Tell us why readers should buy Manipulated.

A: The 2016 presidential election elicited raw emotions from many Americans. Okay, I already know what you’re thinking, “politics, no thank you!!” Believe me, I understand. For countless political observers the entire election process demonstrated the ugly underbelly of our country, regardless of which side of the political aisle you call home. Manipulated reimagines that election cycle.

Manipulated chronicles a 70-year clandestine effort to seize control of the United States at the foundational level. It’s all happening right under the noses of an unsuspecting nation. The long-awaited scheme will come to fruition with the 2016 presidential Manipulated - Cover artelection. Everything is going according to plan, but then something happens. A new voice emerges. A strangely authentic candidate captures the fascination of the American people. But is it too late? Has the machine gotten too large to overcome? The stakes are high. The survival of the nation as we know it hangs in the balance.

Q: What makes a good political thriller?

A: A political thriller must thread the needle of not being so far-fetched that it is unbelievable but far enough from reality that it is compelling. It must have a rapidly evolving storyline that demands the reader to ask, “what’s next?” It must have characters that the reader cares about, including those they love and those they want to strangle. In the end the author owes a debt to the reader’s investment of time paid off in the currency of an ending that leaves them moved, fulfilled, and satisfied.

Q: Where can readers find out more about you and your work?

A: My website www.johnfordclayton.conm provides information about me and my book. I am on social media at www.facebook.com/johnfordclayton and www.twitter.com/johnfordclayton.

Q: What has writing taught you?

A: Writing is hard. It requires energy, focus, and a stubborn commitment. It demands equal parts of the left brain and right brain. The left brain is necessary to produce an organized storyline that stays focused on evolving the plot. The right brain is the source of colourful characters, interesting scenes, and intriguing dialog. While the story can always be improved, there must come a time when the writer is complete and transfers the product into the hands of the reader. The reader is the ultimate arbiter of whether a book is successful. The reader is always right.
