Go Tell It! by Debby Efurd

 


Debby Efurd s fondest memories as a child was spent with her grand-mother for story time. Fairy tales, fables, stories from her youth . . . they swept Debby away to another world. As one story ended, Debby would beg for more. When she was older, Debby fell in love with Bible stories and was ea-ger to hear stories in Sunday School about Joseph or David or Moses. Then one day she heard the Greatest Story Ever Told and met and fell in love with the Main Character Jesus Christ. That made all the difference. Somewhere along Debby s life journey, though, Debby forgot who was in charge. That s when life turned upside down. Decades later, after many trials and triumphs, she turned control back to the One who provides hope and transformation. Yes, stories can inspire, motivate, spur you to action . . . like an arrow right at your heart. Go Tell It! provides compelling stories of hope and transformation of lives who have each made a 180 by finding and sharing their voices. Whether your personal story revolves around one moment, one ministry, or a multitude of life events, the key is to point to the One who makes your transformation possible. All it takes is a willing heart and the courage to be honest . . . one story at a time."  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WRKAW8G

A Modern Woman by Catherine MacDonald (Historical Fiction)




There was a commotion at the front entrance and Lily looked that way. The door burst open and a swarm of police rushed in swinging their black clubs in the air and yelling, "Raid!" A tall portly officer blew his whistle and yelled, "No one leave the room. You are all under arrest." 


It's 1923 in Reno, Nevada and seventeen-year-old Lily Diamond is serving illegal liquor in a speakeasy involved with murder and corruption. She meets handsome Joe Caponi and her haunting eyes seem to look deep within his soul and see the man he hopes to be one day. Against society and family constraints, fate intervenes and brings two people, who are destined for each other, together. Revisit the fascinating world of illegal liquor and drinking clubs, sex, murder, corruption, as you read the story of a young woman coming of age during the Jazz Age.

Trinity by Curtis Mischler







The desert stretched in all directions, as far as the eye could see. Desolate, barren, beautiful. Nothing was stirring, except for a hawk circling lazily overhead in the waning sunlight.

In a blinding instant, that calm was shattered by the light of a thousand suns. In that moment the universe shifted, both in time and space. Subtly, but measurably, if one knew where and how to look.

The desert sand beneath the growing mushroom cloud was instantaneously fused into radioactive glass. The shock wave rolled outward, knocking the hawk from the sky and blowing dust and debris for miles.

So began the atomic age. And with it a threat to the very existence of the universe. The first atomic bomb created a tear in the fabric of space and time that attached itself to a young scientist's genetic code and would affect his future generations. Thus was set in motion a series of events that transcends time and space. Can this young scientist and his descendants work together to save the universe?

EXCERPT:

Everything was caught in a searing light. Blinding, all around him. He could sense the heavens reeling, birthing, dying all around him. He felt a oneness with everything. A brilliant point of light grew to giant proportions and engulfed everything. He was the light. He was everything. 

He sensed another presence with him. Someone older, kind. He could not see this person, but he knew he was there. He tried to shout out, but nothing would come. His heart beat faster and faster. There was something here; someone here with whom he was supposed to connect, but he couldn't. 

He let himself go with the tidal forces throwing him around on the cosmic breeze. He relaxed and extended his arms and legs in the brilliance around him. He felt the other presence do the same, and they came together. One, yet distinct. 

In that brief moment, he caught a glimpse of something; something very familiar. Something he had sensed that day in his grandpa's room when he said his last goodbye. He reached for it, and it was there. And he knew who it was. 

He began to understand. That everything and everyone is connected, yet we rarely see that in our own worlds as me move from moment to moment, day to day. There is the possibility of "bigger"; of recognizing and feeling and exploring the connections, throughout the universe and across time and space. If only he could 
learn to control it....  

But there was something else; something wrong. He could sense the universe unraveling around him. It was not right, he could feel that to his core. He didn't understand it all, but he knew that if this could not be stopped, could not be repaired, that the universe was in danger of falling apart. 

With a rush of light and cosmic wind, he was thrust violently back into the real world. On the train. Pulling into New York City. He had missed his stop in Princeton. He'd have to get off and get the next train headed south.

Mystical Aria, Seeking the Gallion Queen

 






 
"Many compare Guthrie's novel to the endearing kid-meets-alien theme in 
Steven Spielberg's E.T." ~ David Thalberg
Aria Vanir, psychic 12-year-old girl from Virginia Beach, trusts only her mother with the knowledge of her predictions and remote viewings. When Aria connects with technically and spiritually advanced aliens—the Gallions—she instead confides in her best friend, Tommy Manger. His unexpected anger threatens to end their friendship. 

Nashata, Queen Supreme of the Gallions, leads a diplomatic mission with her royal family to Earth so she can make peaceful contact with Aria. The queen trusts only this "youngirl" with the secrets of her people. 

When the Gallions beam Aria, Tommy, and Aria's tomboyish teen sister, Jackie, aboard their spaceship, Aria's typically passive mother makes a daring move to save her daughters. None of them realize that the military has sent Aria's Navy SEAL father, William, on a mission to capture the good aliens or destroy their spaceship. Worse, William has no idea that he's putting his daughters and their friend in harm's way.

Can Aria succeed in her quest to meet the alien queen in person, despite the fears and disbeliefs of those closest to her? 


Excerpts​

Aria Vanir breezed through her seventh-grade homework to focus on far more important matters. While many of her friends and neighbors gathered at the Virginia Beach boardwalk to admire the amber and ruby rays from the setting sun, Aria preferred to gaze through her bedroom window at the darkening heavens. For her, twilight welcomed the dawn of the stars. On this clear evening in late May 2028, Aria mindlessly tapped her fingers against the top of her transmission binder, or tBinder, as she wondered who lived among those twinkling orbs.

​****

How could a human youngirl on Earth, the queen wondered, know so much about the land of the Gallions? Of all the aliens, why would Aria specifically invite the Gallions to visit her? Could this be the sign I've been waiting for?

****

"I'll never ever talk to aliens," Aria promised herself. The struggle of keeping their secrets and defending their existence was too painful. "Never again."

Mitushi gazed at the puddles of water on the floor. Red lines of blood flowed into them and spread in different directions. It reminded him of veins in a human body and how vulnerable men and women are to the weapons mankind had designed.
