Award-winning novel publishing this October from Washington Writers – “Rush of Shadows” by Catherine Bell takes readers to 19th century California.
Rush of Shadows (October 15, Washington Writers’ Publishing House) evokes the clash between natives and settlers in 19th century California through the unlikely friendship of two women, Mellie, white, and Bahé, Native American. As settlers fence the land and drive off game, Native Americans are starved, enslaved, and even shot for fun. Yet Bahé helps Mellie safely through childbirth, and Mellie’s warning saves a Native American village from a massacre perpetrated by her white neighbors. Even after Bahé is driven to seek safety in prostitution, the women manage to feed, doctor, and teach each other. Tough-minded and lyrical, Rush of Shadows brings to life the human dimensions of a tragic conflict which corrupted the winners and left the losers to haunt the landscape as shadows.

She holds degrees from Harvard and Stanford and has lived in Boston, Paris, Brasilia, and Nova Scotia, as well as Northern California, where she discovered the germ of this story, and Washington, D.C.

Sci-fi Thriller Soldiers of God Re-Released And Completely Rewritten In Ebook Format
Avid traveler and author, Steven M. Moore re-releases his sci-fi thriller, Soldier’s of God in ebook format.

Moore’s travels have provided him the opportunity to study the people and cultures often portrayed in his work while his scientific background helps make the creations of his imagination seem all the more real. He has specialized in socially relevant science fiction that bridges thriller, suspense, and sci-fi genres and now dedicates full time to writing with nine adult novels and a novel for young adults–all are sci-fi thrillers.

Mike Markel published his fourth crime novel, “Three-Ways: A Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery,” about a web of sexual entanglements on a university campus.
When grad student Austin Sulenka is found strangled, nude on his bed, the first question for Detectives Seagate and Miner is whether it was an auto-asphyxiation episode gone bad. Evidence strewn around his small apartment suggests that he spent his last night with a number of different women. One was Tiffany, a former student who still resented the injustice of getting a C in the course when he promised her a B if she slept with him. Another was Austin’s beautiful girlfriend, May, who had never before encountered a man she could not totally beguile. Then there was his thesis adviser, Suzannah Montgomery, who might have inadvertently revealed to Austin some information about her past that could ruin her own career. These three women and the other men in their lives had plenty of reasons to kill the philandering graduate student. As Detective Karen Seagate and her partner try to unravel the complicated couplings, she finds herself involved in her own three-way relationship that threatens to destroy her More >
