#Free on Kindle 1st - 3rd June ~ The Pitchfork Rebellion

The Pitchfork Rebellion

FREE on Kindle, for a limited time only
1st June ~ 3rd June
Amazon


From the author who brought us The Du Lac Chronicles

When the devil wanted to destroy the world he would do so with fire. Alden du Lac knew this for a fact, because the devil had come to Cerniw.

Alden may have driven the man who tortured him from his lands, but he can do nothing to drive him from his dreams.

Alden has become bitter, angry and unrecognizable to those who love him. The only person whom could possible bring him back from the brink is his younger brother Merton. But even Merton is at a loss as to what to do.

As Alden seemingly wars with himself, there is a new threat to the kingdom. A threat that nobody foresaw, or could have possibly predicted…

The adventure continues in this beautiful novella.

Praise for The Pitchfork Rebellion

I’m a huge fan of this series and while this is a darker story, I loved it. Alden’s guilt, Merton’s devotion, Annis’ torment all combine to make this a captivating read. Historically accurate, realistic character development and a bridge between book one and book two (releasing Fall 2016) all combine in this well-executed novella. I’m waiting with bated breath for the next instalment. N.N.Light

In book two - The Pitchfork Rebellion: The Du Lac Chronicles - Novella, Ms. Yarde continues her classic historical sequel right where the original story ended. Ms. Yarde continues to intrigue her avid fans with the trials and tribulations of Alden and Annis in the midst of death and destruction. Her beautiful love story between the main characters continues in spite of personal doubt, guilt and who can be trusted in the kingdom that is hopelessly divided. Like book one, I was hooked from page one, and I could not wait to see how the events would unfold. Larry D. Shackelford

Ah, I love this story, I love these characters, and I hated getting to that last page, having no more to turn. The Pitchfork Rebellion takes us on an emotional journey, as Alden, King of Cerniw, struggles to find the strength he needs to reclaim his land and title. The story is a quick read, a continuation of book 1, and leads us into book 2, which hopefully will be out very, very soon. R M Gilmour

Verton, Pennsylvania, is a steel town where impartiality in the age-old war between the company and the workers never goes unpunished. Glenn Dempster, the town’s new police chief after ending his predecessor’s corrupt administration, is untrusted, even in victory. At the start of his administration, he undergoes trial by fire when an explosion at the steel mill’s blast furnace threatens the end of steel production. Four are killed. One victim, with only partial remains, goes unidentified, beginning a final battle between union and company over the identity.

In the disaster’s aftermath, every rift in town is exposed, including Glenn’s oldest friendships and his failing marriage. When the children of Glenn’s opponents target his young daughter at school, a father weighs his family’s safety against his principles, and a police chief considers how to apply his authority.

Eleven-year-old Heather throws herself into the conflict when her father’s enemies make a final move against him and she makes a desperate attempt to keep vital evidence out of their hands by running off into the Pennsylvania backwoods as a storm descends on the town.

Book Spotlight - Awaken to Peace #booksgs @AwakentoPeace


Awaken to Peace
✯ 
Author, Michelle Carter, has joined us on the blog today to showcase her latest book.


Are you against war and all the violence that we are constantly experiencing in the world?

I believe the majority of people in the world desire peace, so if this is true, then why do we not have peace?

·      We feel helpless and powerless when governments are in charge
·      We feel fear that we may be harmed if we speak out
·      Governments are choosing war even when we do demonstrate against it

More importantly what can we do to create peace?

We can actually do far more than we realize, especially when we understand ‘The Power of the Universe’ and use this energy to create peace.

If you desire peace, then allow this book to open your mind to new possibilities and a new way of living.

Awaken to Peace explores this in a light-hearted and easy to read way, guiding you through the chapters to learn about energy and how we can use this power to create peace and all we desire. No knowledge of energy or healing is needed to read this book, just an open mind and willingness to learn.
 
 Let's take a quick look inside the book....


‘Why do we need to awaken to peace?’ The answer to this is because: -



We have war, and the majority of people

On earth do not want to be at war.



If the majority of people do not want war, then isn’t it up to us, the majority, to do something to stop us being at war? The answer is of course a huge YES, but I know that so many people, and that used to include myself too, don’t believe we can make a difference. We feel we are just one person with no power against governments and all those making the decisions, and no power over people with guns and bombs.



However, when we unite and use our majority intention together, we do have huge power and that is what ‘Awaken to Peace’ is all about: -

  

Using our group intention to create peace.



The good news is that anyone who chooses peace can add their energy to the group intention right now, in their own home with the information in this book!



In fact, anyone can help create peace without even knowing any of the behind the scenes facts or discovering the Truth.  What action appeals to you after reading this book is your choice and you need to follow your own feelings to do what is right for you. Every little thing we all do is adding to the collective intention to create peace and that can only be good! So let’s get started . . . but where on earth do we start?  Well, let’s start with why I have written ‘Awaken to Peace’ and what I hope to achieve for you as you read it.



I have written ‘Awaken to Peace’ in a light-hearted and easy to read style, so that you enjoy reading all the information contained in these pages. Many readers of my previous book ‘Loving You – Discover Your True Inner Self’ commented on how much they liked the ‘easy going style’ of my writing, and that it felt like I was having a cozy chat with them! We are more willing to be open to new information if we feel happy and relaxed, so I have also infused ‘Awaken to Peace’ with powerful Pure and Divine Energies so that you feel peaceful and inspired as you read! 



I have included energy work and releasing statements, like the one below, (which I will explain later in more detail), so just enjoy being open-minded, and have fun with the process of learning more as you read: -



“I choose to be open to new ideas and release any resistance to learning something new. I understand that learning about something new can be fun and exciting and has no threat to me, or my existing views, as I don’t have to change anything I believe, unless I choose to change it. I feel safe and excited to learn new ideas and to be open to new possibilities!’

Finding out why we have war when the majority of people want to live in peace is one way of moving towards peace. I mean how can we change something if we don’t know what is wrong?



Well there are two aspects to life: -



·      Our human life, knowledge and awareness

·      ‘The Power of the Universe’, the universal life force behind of all life



In terms of human life and human systems, it is very true to say that we do need to know what is wrong before we can change the system to a better one.



However in terms of the whole universe there is a whole system of power all around us, that most of the Western World do not acknowledge exists, and certainly don’t use it to their advantage.



What if we were to open our minds to the possibility that there is an infinite power greater than humans, and that we could learn about this power and use it to create peace on earth? Now wouldn’t that be a really amazing thing to do? Of course it would! So let’s start by opening our minds to  . . . whatever!


Let’s leave religion and politics out, in fact we are going to leave all human systems and beliefs out and we are going to talk about energy . . . Universal Energy!

Book 1

 It is about a person that is chosen to save humanity from itself in a world that has decayed beyond repair where people have lost hope. The beginning deals with his mother as to who she is and what kind of nurturing she does to help her child take his place as the last savior.

The Savior fosters his own teachings merging science with spirituality as he confronted with the unknown as to how people will perceive him in the world of modern religion.

Some think he is the reincarnation of Jesus, Some people think he's a profit, some will hate him. But he is not alone in the world as he meets people who help him on his Journey, to be his support to accomplish what he must. To give humanity hope, To redefine what God is and so much more.

Author Interview - Francisco Rebollo #booksgs @flycisco

Let's give a warm welcome to Sci-Fi / Romance author, Francisco Rebollo who has happily agreed to an author interview today!!
 
First, let's take a look at his latest book...
  
ORB
'An aeronautical love story from an altered world’
 

All is about to be unveiled…

Oannes Jones is an airline pilot living in a much altered world where a pervasive technology seeps into every part of people’s lives in order to create a compliant, unthinking society.

He believes he has found his purpose in playing father to Riply, a young girl not his own. But he also feels hopelessly torn between two women, one of whom is Riply’s mother.

And then it happens: a dangerous mid-air encounter with a mysterious ball of light – the Orb.

The encounter awakens him to a new reality. Life, the world and even dreams begin to look and feel different. His friends begin to change as well. Clues are laid out for him to follow, most of them provided by Riply.

As dark forces begin to encircle, something happens that will change everything for many people, not least for the child whom Oannes loves.

The Orb nears…

Everyone changes…

Here goes the autopilot…

***

MY: Welcome to the blog! Could you tell us a little about your journey to becoming a published author.

FR: As a dystopian Sci-Fi author I couldn’t wait to publish. The world is becoming more dystopian than Sci-Fi, very quickly. So, I’m self-published. I really wanted my book to get out there with the minimum amount of obstacles. I knew that I would be sacrificing the possibility of having promotion behind my book but – on balance – I felt that getting my book out to where people can find it was more important. The possibility of years of rejection also turned me off the traditional publishing route.

I have the strange view that if my book is meant for you, it’ll find you.


MY: What does your average ‘writing day’ look like?

FR: It’s looks very dark because it normally happens between midnight and three AM. There is something special about the small hours, I seem to be able to tune into the mind frequency I’m looking for much better. The hassle of daily life is quiet and I push myself until it would be counterproductive to continue.


MY: Are there any authors that you particularly admire? And if so, why? 

FR: Margaret Atwood for the way she creates an atmosphere. Richard Bach for his originality and simplicity. John Fante for his beautiful imagery and language.

MY: What are you currently working on?
 
FR: A collection of poetry and prose and songs designed as an overarching journey. I’m still deciding on titles but ‘Fractals’ and ‘This is my Heart’ are in my short list. You can view my poetry on my blogspot: flycisco.blogspot.ie

MY: If you could give advice to an aspiring author, what would it be? 
 
FR: Go for it. If I can do it, anyone can do it. The best part of writing a book is the journey it takes you on. I love the state it gets me into, like a trance, like listening to a distant conversation, like watching a movie and having a say on who says what.


MY: Authors are often portrayed as being cat owners who drinks a lot of coffee. Is this true for you?
 
FR: I guess the answer is ‘yes.’ I own two dogs, but I once rescued a stray kitten, she had a virus and it was a sad story. I wrote a poem about her. I do drink coffee but not lots. As a pilot I have to limit my intake to stay healthy.

MY: What does your ‘perfect’ day look like?
 
FR: A day spent with my children. The night belongs to the muse.

MY: What is your biggest vice?
 
FR: Doing accents. I sometimes do it without realising it. Drives people at work crazy.

MY: If you could meet anyone from the past, who would it be and why?
 
FR: I’d like to meet twenty-year-old me. I’d tell him that in the future you can produce books, music, art and put it ‘out there’ for people to enjoy without having to be ‘discovered’ by a gate keeper like an agent, publisher etc. I’d tell him to smarten up a lot quicker and to prepare to be blown away by life.
 
MY: Where do you see yourself in five years?
 
FR: Happy, still writing and still flying. With my kids, my dogs, and maybe even with a stray kitten.

About the author 
Hi, my name is Francisco Rebollo. I'm a writer and pilot.  I've been an airline pilot since 1998. I'm from Mexico. I've flown and lived across Europe and North America. In 2013, I suffered injuries and got grounded. During those 16 months on the ground, I turned to my writing as a way to get over what was a very difficult time. After a long journey, I am back flying again.
I have just finished my first novel: 'ORB' An Aeronautical Love Story from an Altered World. The novel deals with flying, love, migration, the paranormal, war, spirituality and the nature of the superstate. The book is fiction but is also based partly on my own experiences in the air. 'Fractals' (a poetry and prose collection) is also in production. I began my writing career as a songwriter. I attended music colleges in Mexico and USA. I began writing poetry while backpacking across Europe during the trip which eventually brought me to Ireland - where I now live permanently. My poem: 'MIND GAP (London Fireworks)' made the 'Word on the Waves' 2015 long list. My articles ‘Why Mexicans Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in September’ and'The flower of Twenty and the Day of the Dead' have been featured in the ‘West Cork People’ (Mar 2014/Oct 2014.) My poetry has featured in e-publications like: 'Poetry24,' 'The Poetry Daily,' 'Democracia Real Ya!', and 'El Fugaz Ciberdiario;' as well as 'Zaytoun CIC's' website and newsletter. I perform regularly at 'pSoken Wrod' (a renowned 'spoken word' event in west Cork, Ireland.)
