About the Book:

In the year 2084, the brilliant inventor, Alex Pella, finds himself at a precarious crossroad between the pursuit of justice and preservation of his own sanity. While attempting to undermine an international New World Order The Hidden Realitygovernment created by the financial juggernaut known as The New Reality, he must also face the hidden truths about his own genetic heritage that are slowly destroying him. After receiving an ambiguous message sent from a former New Reality executive who died 2 years prior, Alex learns that the only possible means to confront this New World Order is to defeat a long-forgotten enemy almost 2500 years old.

 

THE HIDDEN REALITY is the second stand-alone novel in a trilogy starring Alex Pella, created by New Jersey-based neurologist and entrepreneur Stephen Martino. With his fusion of history, politics, and science fiction, Martino joins such masters of the thriller genre as Dan Brown, James Rollins, and Michael Crichton.
Martino’s villain is a corporation run by a cadre of ruthless international bankers known as The New Reality. Directed by the most corrupt and morally unscrupulous of the bunch, Myra Keres, the company has economically seized control of the world’s governments and the population’s personal freedoms in the process. In order to save humanity from this despot ruler and the unwonted atrocities to which she plans to perpetuate on the world, Alex Pella must infiltrate the company and face an enemy that has unknowingly haunted both him and history for almost 2500 years.
Martino says he wrote THE HIDDEN REALITY more than just to entertain the reader. He wanted to create a modern day Orwellian ANIMAL FARM to allegorically forewarn his readers of a possible dystopia future that awaits all of mankind if humanity continues to proceed down its path of self-destruction.

 

In THE HIDDEN REALITY, Martino has included such hot-button contemporary topics as genetic cloning, unprecedented economic debt, the rise of big government, and the threat of a New World Order run by the economic elite, while bringing the reader back almost 2500 years into the past when the ancient city state nation known as Greece fought the mighty Persian Empire for world domination.
All of these elements, Martino maintains, separate his book from the pack. He calls THE HIDDEN REALITY “issue-oriented fiction. There are real concerns facing society today that threaten both the sovereignty and prosperity of our future generations. Though fictional, my novel addresses some of these issues and predicts the potential consequences we face as a nation and the world if they are not properly addressed today.”

The Hidden Reality teaser 2

Would you call yourself a born writer?

Actually, as a child, I did not think I was a born anything. When it came to writing and most other aspects of my life, I was a late bloomer. In fact, I never started to write until my late twenties. Though I had aspired to create the next great American novel since my college days, the thought of creating an entire book seemed overwhelming.

When I first began to dabble in the writing field, it was strictly non-fiction and for the local paper or for throw away medical flyers. I toyed with the idea of moving on to fiction for years. However, it was a coworker who eventually inspired me to take that final step. He would walk into my office and relay to me fantastical ideas of what he thought would make an exciting book, or what he envisioned could create the next blockbuster movie. The more we talked, the more I wanted to create my own novel. After procrastinating long enough, I finally decided to jot down an outline for my first book and continued writing fiction ever since that time.

What was your inspiration for The Hidden Reality?

I remember daydreaming in college over 20 years ago, thinking of different ideas that I may want to write about one day. In fact, the initial idea for The Hidden Reality came to me while I was in history class learning about ancient Greece. It was not that the lecture was boring or that professor lacked charisma, but the thought of recreating such a world and bringing it back to life mesmerized me. Plus, as the cultures of the Eastern and Western worlds collide once again, these historical topics are as apropos today as they were almost 2500 years in the past. Though the pearls of wisdom conveyed in class that afternoon have been long lost in my memory, the inspiration I garnered from that class still lives on and motivates me to this day.

What is even more interesting is that when I completed the class at the end of the semester, the professor wrote me a note, wishing me greatness in all my future endeavors. Ironically, this idea of greatness turned out to be a cornerstone of both my first and most recent novel, The Hidden Reality. Retrospectively, I can thank this great teacher for launching my eventual writing career and recognize him for all the inspiration he has given me throughout the years.

What themes do you like to explore in your writing?

Before writing The Hidden Reality, I conducted years of research into different scientific, medical, historical, philosophical, and political topics. In fact, I have shelves of books dedicated just to this novel. The goal was to create a finished product that was meant more for than just enjoyment. I really wanted to create a novel with substance like Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code or Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park. These books not only tell a fantastic story but they also make the reader think. So what I did in The Hidden Reality was incorporate certain pressing topics that effect our word today such the unprecedented world-wide economic debt, globalism, clash of East and West, and the rise of big government while combining it with some interesting subjects such as Ancient Greek military history, the concept of an Open Society, and futuristic scientific concepts.

In the end, my goal was to turn The Hidden Reality into a modern day allegoric Animal Farm to forewarn my readers of the possible future consequences we may face as a result of our current follies of today. As political tensions rise around the globe, the world plunges into economic debt, Europe delves deeper into chaos, and new scientific and medical achievements astound us by the day, I incorporated these high-concept ideas into The Hidden Reality and attempted to make sense out the pandemonium that surround us on a daily basis.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

Actually, sitting down and writing the novel was the easiest process. It only took me only 2 months to create the first draft. However, there was years of research sitting on my desk even before I started writing. Plus, it took me weeks to create the outline which I used while writing The Hidden Reality.

Researching, making an outline, and writing the first draft of the book were definitely the most exciting and satisfying facets of the creative process.  Editing, however, proved to be the most laborious. This process took months. Sometimes I spent days going just going over a single chapter. Thankfully, my editor and proofreader aided tremendously in the process. Without them, I would honestly still be editing my book.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.

Fortunately, I’m an earlier riser. Before the first bird sings her morning melody or the hens in the nearby farm welcome a new day with their cock-a-doodle-dos, I’ve been typing on my computer for at least an hour or 2. It’s in these wee hours of the morning when I’m most creative and no one is bugging me. With 5 kids at home, a dog, and a high-paced work schedule, it proves to be the only time of the day when I can have any peace. Plus, writing serves as a mental catharsis whereby I feel at ease with the world. Without writing, going to the gym in the morning, and having a cup of hot chocolate, I’m not ready for the day.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book?

I found that creating the compelling ancient Greek war scene in the novel to be the the most challenging aspect of writing the book. Though only a small portion of The Hidden Reality was dedicated to this topic, the research that went into it was the most time consuming. In order to have a convincing finished product, every detail needed to be historically accurate.

What do you love most about being an author?

My greatest highlight of being an author was when I presented my first novel at the Book Expo America in New York city. I had attended this massive conference for years, dreaming of being one of the authors. When the day came when I was a presenter, it turned out to be much more exciting and exhilarating than I’d anticipated. If someone would have told me a year or two prior that I would be in that positon, I would have thought they were lying.

Plus, being an author has introduced me to an array of fantastic people. I cannot say enough compliments to the people in my publishing agency. Plus, the fellow authors I’ve met and the people who’ve actually read and enjoyed my books have been such a joy. I feel very blessed to have all these great experiences.

Did you go with a traditional publisher, small press, or did you self publish? What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?

A small independent press known as Light Messages Publishing took on my work and brought it to print. As a previous novice to the publishing industry and writing business, finding Light Messages was a completely humbling task. I was rejected by hundreds of agents and publishers before eventually joining Light Messages. Honestly, the only time I was rejected this many times was when I was dating back in high school.

Before ever being published, I was signed on by an agent. It was this agent who eventually made contact with Light Messages and brought me into their family of successful writers. Sadly, a week before I closed the contract with Light Messages, my agent suddenly passed. However, I believe she is on the other side still rooting on my books for continued success.

Where can we find you on the web?

Thank you for having me. The Hidden Reality can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, and iBooks. Also, please check out my website at http://www.martinoauthor.com.

THE DARK APARTMENT

May 29, 1959

It had been a beautiful early summer day in San Francisco but the evening fog was rolling in, seemingly pulling a cozy blanket over the sparkling city as 28-year-old Debra Norton returned from her Friday night date with John D’Angelo, a tall, handsome, dark-haired man she had met at work.

It was their first date. He was so unlike the men who had been part of her life in recent years. He seemed kind and gentle. John seemed like just what she wanted in a companion but she reminded herself it was too early to make such an assessment. It could be the beginning of something good for Debra who, at the urging of her sister, had fled Seattle to make a new start in San Francisco.

John was truly an artist and Debra’s job had been the most unusual experience of her life.

She began working at the wax museum on Fisherman’s Wharf at the beginning of May, where she performed a variety of tasks. Debra had secretarial and clerical duties but at times she was a ticket taker. Over the four weeks she had been at the museum, she had learned enough about various exhibits that she directed patrons and answered their questions. That part was really fun.

John, on the other hand, was the creative talent behind many of the museum’s famous wax figures. He actually created the figures which attracted tourists who visited Fisherman’s Wharf. She’d met John on the first day at her new job, but initially their paths didn’t cross because he was always in the upstairs studio.

Nevertheless, recently, John had been finding excuses to leave his work studio and chat up Debra. A few times she looked up and noticed him watching her.

Now on their first date, John had taken Debra out to dinner. He was very attentive. There were nice little touches many women would probably take for granted, such as pulling out her chair to seat her at the table and opening the car door for her.

After the dinner, they went to the late show at the Embassy Theatre on Market Street and saw “A Summer Place” with Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It was just the kind of romantic movie Debra loved but had never seen.

She shared a popcorn with her handsome co-worker. About halfway through the movie, he took her hand. His hands were manly but soft. He held her hand as if it were some delicate object of art which might break if treated carelessly.

They continued to hold hands until he gave her a good night kiss on the steps by the front door stoop near the entrance of her San Francisco-style townhouse apartment building. She seemed euphoric as she began to descend the steps to her second floor apartment. Debra stopped halfway up the steps and turned to look at the front door. She could see John standing outside the glass door watching her ascend the steps.  She smiled and waved before resuming her climb up the stairs.

She smiled to herself knowing John was watching her.

Debra’s lighthearted contentment was shattered when she slowly walked towards the door of her apartment. Her sixth sense kicked in. Something just didn’t look right.  A little voice in her head told her to bolt and go retrieve John, but instead she pushed ahead.

Genre: Romance
Format: Ecopy

 

It is up to the Emperors of London to protect the throne—without risking their hearts…


Governess Eve Merton would have fallen into serious trouble on her walk home if a handsome stranger had not stopped to help her. But when Mr. Vernon gives her a lift on his horse, he makes no secret of his attraction. As a well brought-up young lady, Eve does her best not to notice, but when he sets about courting her, she knows she’s in trouble. For she has a secret: she is the daughter of a deposed king, which means not only is she without a dowry, but also that her life is in danger…

Little does Eve know that Mr. Vernon has secrets of his own. In truth, his name is Julius, Lord Winterton, and he’s well aware that Eve is the offspring of the Old Pretender. In order to save his sister, he must convince Eve to wed—though he wants nothing to do with love. But as the two grow closer and an attempt is made on Eve’s life, Julius may realize that fighting his heart’s true desire is a battle most pleasurably surrendered…

Lynne-Connolly
 
I write sensuous historical romance as Lynne Connolly, and contemporary and paranormal romance as L.M. Connolly 

 
 I was born in Leicester, England, and lived in our cobbler’s shop with my parents and sister. It was an old house and most definitely haunted, but I didn’t find out until I left that my great uncle had hung himself in the living room! But I think our ghost might have been older than that. It was built on the site of the old Roman cemetery, and the land had been constantly inhabited, being in the centre of town. Then, when the council bought the house from us to build a road, my grandfather retired and my father went and worked for the Post Office. My mother was a sample machinist; that is, she worked with designers on the prototypes (models or samples) of garments. So I was very well dressed! We bought a relatively modern house in the country, and my mother was blissfully happy. It’s all very well living in a large old house, but it’s a dreadful task to keep it clean and warm! 

 
My mother’s side of the family are Romany gypsies, although sadly we haven’t any of the old trailers that are so astonishingly beautiful. I was taught to read the Tarot cards, and I usually use two packs; the Rider pack for simple readings and the Crowley Thoth pack for the complex stuff.
I’ve always had an interest in the paranormal and it’s been a delight to be able to put some of this into my novels.
 

 
My other huge interest is the historical. I love all periods of history, but my favorites are the Tudor and Georgian eras. I research and research, because I love it. I will travel miles to see a new variation on the Palladian mansion! I am fascinated in finding out how people lived then, and creating a credible story with people who lived in past ages.

It’s no secret that Portland, Oregon, has some of best restaurants, shops, and cafés in the country. But it’s the hard-working men who serve it all up that keep us coming back for more…

One of Portland’s hottest young baristas, Brady is famous for his java-topping flair, turning a regular cup of joe into a work of art. Every Wednesday—aka “Knit Night”—hordes of women and their needles descend on the coffeehouse, and Brady’s feeling the heat. Into the fray walks a tall, dark, and distractingly handsome stranger from New York. His name is Evren, and he’s the sexy nephew of Brady’s sweetest customer, the owner of the yarn shop down the street. He’s also got a killer smile, confident air, and masculine charm that’s tying Brady’s stomach in knots. The smitten barista can’t wait to see him at the next week’s gathering. But when he tries to ask Evren out, his plans unravel faster than an unfinished edge. If Brady hopes to warm up more than Evren’s coffee, he’ll have to find a way to untangle their feelings, get out of the friend zone, and form a close-knit bond that’s bound to last a lifetime…

There’s a different rhythm to life in small-town Mill Pond, Indiana. And with the easy pace come friendships that are built to last and love that starts out on a slow simmer…

Charming boutiques, picturesque farms, and a growing foodie scene have turned Mill Pond into a tourist destination. And thanks to the culinary skills of Paula Hull, its beautiful rural resort is leading the way.

His burgers and beer, on the other hand, are not off limits. But their mutual admiration is always on the back burner—until Chase turns up the heat.

You grow up. You get married. You have a family. At least,
that’s what Malea Winters believes she’s supposed to do. So why is it that
every time she comes close to finding that happily ever after, she runs?When she meets Garrett Taylor, she warns him that she’s not the marrying type
because history has shown that long-term relationships are not her forte. She
has a tendency to leave when things get too serious; the direct result of being
raised by an emotionally detached mother and a stepdad with philandering ways.
So she swore off men and surrounded herself with her best friends; three
quirky, funny women who are facing challenges of their own.

But Garrett is everything she’s ever looked for; charming, successful, fun, and
sexy. Despite her better judgment, his persistence pays off and she finds
herself falling for him.

Learning how to love and be loved will be the hardest lesson she’s ever faced.
The question is, will her relationships survive that lesson?

As I walk down the aisle, avoiding eye contact with my
husband-to-be, I remember the dream and feel the need to run.
I clutch the bountiful bouquet of flowers, red and white for
our Christmastime wedding, and feel the sweat on my palms collect in the
center. I want to rub them down the front of my dress.
But that would be unacceptable. My grandma has lovingly sewn
every stitch, carefully placed every pearly bead, and worked every delicate
piece of lace. It’s a work of labor and love.
Today, I am supposed to be a princess.
But as I look around at familiar faces, friends and family,
watching me take this enormous step into life as a wife, as a life partner, I
feel anything but princess-like.
I feel the lie. I feel the relentless pursuit of truth. Both
follow me down the aisle, tapping on my shoulder and reminding me that I have
no ability to live up to this responsibility.
I am quaking in my white heels. My knees are shaking. But
still I march forward on the arm of the only male in my life I’ve ever thought
of as a father. He isn’t really, but he’s the only man my mom brought home over
the years to whom I formed any real emotional attachment before they’d split
ways. Due to his philandering ways, he was out of our life more than he was in
it. But when he was around, something
inside of me recognized something inside of him, and I cared for him.
I swallow down my fear. It’s only nerves. It’s normal. This
is the natural order of things: you grow up, you get married, you have a
family. That’s how it’s done.
Then what?
I finally make eye contact with Garrett and search
for…safety? Love? Answers?
Only my own fear reflects back. He can see the hesitation,
the anxiety, the angst. He smiles cautiously. He’ll never admit what we both
know.
Just before we reach the altar, I take one last look around.
The gathering within the small church is there for only one purpose: to watch
us get hitched.
I could run right now. This is my last chance. I could just
turn around and make a run for it.

President Tron 7000
Title:
President Tron 7000

Author: Adam Pfeffer

Publisher: iUniverse

Genre: Science Fiction

Format: Paperback

In 2056, androids have become commonplace—so much so that the United States has elected its first android president. President Tron 7000 might be just what the country needs. He knows all the answers and vows to include everyone in his programs for a new America. Not everyone is convinced, however. Aging reporter Hudge Stone believes that the election of an android must be a mistake. Even though the new president has pledged to end nuclear war and provide better education for all, it seems too good to be true. When President Tron is shot by an angry human being, however, all hell breaks loose. Tron declares humans enemies of the state and sets out to exterminate them, calling all other robots to join him. There is little doubt which side is stronger, and only time will tell what the future of the human race will be—whether humans will survive or be made extinct by the machines they have created. In this science fiction novel exploring humanity’s quest for perfection through technology, humans fight to survive against androids determined to destroy them.
