New Book Release: The Cave of The Kracken

In my last posting I wrote about an exciting new release from NCC Publishing by an exciting fresh new author, B.D. Riehl (The Earth Is Full).  And I stand by the recommendation that if you have not read The Earth Is Full, you have cheated yourself out of a treat. But in today's post, I would like to direct your thoughts to an upcoming release from yours truly, The Cave of The Kracken.

The Cave of The Kracken is a futuristic thriller set in the remains of the northeastern quadrant of the USA. The time is an undisclosed date in the near distant future. The world is ruled by two leading political/economical groups, and in between these two ideas our protagonist, or as his friends like to call him, the hero, Mike Stone is forced to fight for his and the freedom of those he loves. If you like high tech combat and space battles in and around fantastic worlds, all with an under lying message of the redeeming love of Christ, then you will love The Cave of The Kracken.
Wow! That sounded like a commercial.

In other news...for the fans of Nate Richards --he's back! Well almost. Book four, Shades of Blue is under construction.  I hope to have it done by the holiday season if not then by the first of the year. But be sure to hit me up for what's going in the world of Nate and Amber.

Until next time, keep the faith and keep moving forward.

Book Review: The Earth Is Full by B.D.Riehl

The Earth is Full, B.D. Riehl's first novel is a hit. The stories of Suchin, a young Thai girl, stolen from her home and sold into slavery, Lydia a high-spirited teen of privileged, and Charlotte a young stay at home mom all collide in Riehl's breakout work about grace, forgiveness and finding hope. The writing is light and fresh, but layered with intrigue and well as an air of romance. These all work together to completely make you forget that this is the work of a brand new author.

The story will draw you in, and force you to care about the lives of these three young women, their trials and triumphs, victories and failures will become part of your life as well. I found the book to be captivating and full of the hope and promise of the grace of God, while not being preachy or dusty in any way.

In this work, Riehl captures the spirit of the young at heart and the plain being young in such a way that you will feel their pain and the confusion of youth and life unexplored. Reading The Earth Is Full is like going on vacation with your best friend and finding that the entire trip has already been paid for. Sit back, grab a cup of coffee -or tea-- and be prepared to be thoroughly entertained and thrilled. The Earth Is Full by B.D. Riehl, published by NCC Publishing, LLC, also available on Barnes and Noble for Nook, Kobo.
