~~~Author Bio~~~          

Joe loved to draw from an early age. He would write down descriptions and ideas for future projects that accompanied his pictures. His handwriting was terrible, so his parents had him writing his alphabet and numbers in a writing tablet every Sunday afternoon. Joe quickly grew bored, writing pages of the same thing. He knew stories that his paternal grandfather told him, about his life growing up in the Choctaw Nation of Indian Territory, before Oklahoma became a state in 1907. Joe also learned from stories of his other family coming to Texas as Peters' Colonists, before it was a state in 1845. This was much more interesting to write about than any old alphabets, or numbers! Joe's handwriting improved, and so did his interest in writing, and drawing. In time, this became many folders and boxes of information that Joe learned about from close family and friends, who had similar family stories. There was a common thread that these stories shared, showed the determination of the early pioneer people to survive and tolerate hardships, to build up something worthwhile, where there was nothing before. These were the seeds for Joe's first books about the early history of Texas. Joe has many facets, so these interests inspire new and different books to draw the attention of the public. Joe's interests are varied from art; history;scriptwriting;photography; music; and acting. His books reflect these varied interests. Seven books later, Joe has made each one unique to tell a story the way it has never been told before. Joe has four books on history, two children's books, and a new Gothic tale of terror.

Sharon Hays is known to many as a paranormal, mystery, horror writer that some have referred to as an organic writer. However, her skill as a children's writer is polished and accomplished.

Tell them a cute story about Tumbleweeds from a family like their own, and their attention is given from the get-go.

This is a nail-biting, chilling story of the true definition of hardship, adventure, and how fate can put a person in a place they never dreamed they would be. A man fails at an attempt to be a tobacco and corn planter, his wife left him, and he winds up losing everything. He trades his land for two horses and moves to Salem, where he becomes a heavy drinker, and gambler. He finds himself sleeping in a cemetery, and was offered a job to dig graves. He meets a woman who puts a roof over his head, after his weak body fell to the ground, from starvation. Little did he know, Willia is a witch, with big plans for him. His mission is to steal jewelry from the dead, to be used for spells and enchantments. Willia and her group of odd witches drug him, and he becomes their slave. He was sentenced to be hung, after he was found drunk, with possession of stolen jewelry. He is buried, after drinking a strange potion, but is he dead? What happens to him when the lunar eclipse passes, what does he become? He changes once again, during a full moon, and his new life begins. Winston Wallace may appear to be charming, but you would never want to threaten his life. The tables have turned, and New Amsterdam is where all his dreams from the past can come true. How much power does he have, and can he control others? I highly recommend this Gothic tale of terror to all horror, fantasy, and historical adventure lovers. Joe L. Blevins created a Masterpiece of the supernatural in all its glory, made for the movie screen. The story will have you sit on the edge of your seat as you witness graves, black cats, and mystical-magic. The author takes you through a spine-tingling, bloodcurdling, haunted house of horror, where unspeakable evil is everywhere. Prepare yourself for Odd spirits, talking skeletons, demons, and what you will see as Night-time falls! "THE FAMILIAR" is as terrifying as SCREAM, as entertaining as PURE TERROR, and as haunting as THE AMITYVILLE HORROR.

5 Star Review~~"A NEW PROSPECT:City Limit" Author WAYNE ZURL


Sam Jenkins worked for the New York Police Department for twenty years, then retired and moved to Tennessee. Naturally, after retirement, he didn't plan on joining the Police Force once again, but the urge came upon him, and he acted on it. His new position as Police Chief in Prospect began with a mission to solve a homicide, investigate the suspects, and make sure justice is served. However, he had to deal with political influence and extreme pressure from people who didn't want him to take the case. What kind of reputation did Cecil Lovejoy have, and who killed him? What kind of relationship did he have with his wife? Was Sam's best friend the number one suspect? Was Pearl satisfied with Sam, or did she go over his head to push him away? Time is running out, and the clock ticks fast as Sam tries to fit the pieces into the puzzle. I highly recommend this book to all mystery lovers, who enjoy an intriguing story filled with suspense, interesting characters, and humor. Wayne Zurl uses his expertise as a professional in criminal justice as he becomes a Master storyteller in a setting that fits like a glove as he creates a gripping story with intense suspense, page-after-page. The characters with their Southern accent come to life, the twists-and-turns make the reader crave for more, and the author's imagination and creativity become addictive. The story is intelligent, interesting, and enjoyable. Will the crime be solved as New York law meets Southern society? Will greed, hatred, and bribery be swept from under the carpet? Will the wealthy and powerful win the game, or the war? Who are the innocent, and will the guilty be convicted? "A NEW PROSPECT:City Limit" contains as much Yankee charm as MY COUSIN VINNY, is as suspenseful as THIRTEEN DAYS, and is as dramatic as PRESUMED INNOCENT, with Harrison Ford.

5 Star REVIEW~~"TASTING RAIN" Author Kim Malchuk


What if you feel as if you are the happiest person in the world? Your eyes see nothing but beauty as you awake every morning, fulfilling your dreams. Then one day, like an unexpected storm from Mother Nature, tragedy strikes and you are left with nothing but intense pain. Kim Malchuk takes the reader through her personal story of devastation, loss of a loved one, and fear of the unknown. She becomes a Master storyteller as she gently takes the reader by the hand, and teaches them not only how to survive, but how to heal, and love once again. After she lost her husband to cancer, there were many challenges to face, along with choices to be made. The author describes how much our past can hurt, and how we can turn negativity into positive thinking through the process of renewal. I highly recommend this endearing memoir to all those who had to deal with loss of a loved one, loneliness, and grief. Kim Malchuk shows the reader how optimism, wisdom, and self-awareness can prepare you to the road of recovery. Her deeply moving story on perseverance, courage and strength, will make you cry, and smile. Kim's journey of devoted love, heartbreaking loss, and 'Kiminitions' will indeed motivate and inspire the soul. You never know what life may throw upon us, but Kim's wisdom to cope and survive will make you smell the flowers once again. This compelling memoir is beautifully written, brilliant, and filled with spirit. "TASTING RAIN" is as entertaining as PRIVATE BENJAMIN, as delicate as LOVE STORY and as emotional as RADIO, with Cuba Gooding Jr.
