Book Feature -- The Sultan of Monte Cristo

Hello All,

 Today I have, the book blurb of The Sultan of Monte Cristo by The Holy Ghost Writer for us. Here we go:


It felt sad. It was like saying, 'goodbye' to a dear friend when reading the last words, 'hope and wait', of the 1200+ page book, The Count of Monte Cristo.

Did the reader hope and wait to learn what became of Edmond Dantes, Haydee, Mercedes, the Morels, the Danglars or the Villeforts after putting down the book?

One's thoughts need not wander longer, as the Sultan of Monte Cristo unfolds this foresight in the same spirit of Alexandre Dumas. That spirit creates in its readers a hunger and thirst to read.

We are in the 1840's when Dumas becomes an investigative reporter in this first sequel and he publishes his book as a part of the story, 'The Count of Monte Cristo’, like a true account of a real life Edmond Dantes, which book serves as points of reference made by the original and new characters in the ongoing saga.

That may be one of the reasons the sequel's author calls himself, 'The Holy Ghost Writer.' (The HGW)

While new characters are introduced in the second chapter, the first new significant character introduced comes in the 8th chapter in the person of Raymee.

She is introduced similarly as Vampa was introduced early in the Count of Monte Cristo, but plays a more significant role.

We recommend first reading the Count of Monte Cristo to completely understand the references and characters developed, however, the sequel can be enjoyed without a familiarity with the original work.

The Count of Monte Cristo is one of history's best known stories, but only reading or re-familiarizing oneself with the original text or a good translation thereof will bring about the best result to understanding its sequel.

Countless readers over many generations have found the drama of a man unnecessarily imprisoned to emerge unrecognized, only to stealthily take revenge, is a compelling and relevant story in each age. Knowledge of a hidden treasure, provided by the elderly, long-bearded prisoner to the Count of Monte Cristo makes the original a story for children, however the Sultan of Monte Cristo is a little too risqué for a very young audience, and is recommended for those at least 18 years of age.

Based on a true story, it's made that much more compelling in this age when one considers that 65,000,000 Americans, according to a recent article in US Today, have already been convicted of crimes. One can easily imagine that some percentage of those were innocent and suffered equally as did Edmond Dantes while experiencing their own thoughts and plans of revenge.

In the sequels to follow, Edmond Dantes, deeply repentant for the unintended consequences of his revenge in the original story, will realize as the poet Milton observed, revenge though sweet at first will err long recoil on its victor.

Our readers may speculate that The HGW qualifies as a true successor to Dumas, yet concomitantly, and it may be inferred that he is an individual that has emerged from prison as a type of adventurous character in his own life, perhaps wishing to conceal his true identity by writing under the ghostly pen name. The true identity of the HGW will become known once he interacts under his real name with fictitious characters in one of the final books leading up to book ten. The publisher will give a prize to the first person that can discover from the clues that will be planted throughout the ten books as to his true identity. To submit your guess, email

Since the Count of Monte Cristo saw himself as divine providence we speculate that the word 'holy' in the Ghost Writer name was inspired by this fact, yet there are some unexpected twists in this sequel that may also contribute to the name.

Although those and other plot shifts come unexpectedly in this sequel, they fit seamlessly and grow out of some small seeds planted in the original story that never took root therein. One of those small seeds is the word 'hemp' found in the first chapters of the original story by Dumas.

Book Review -- Marching With Caesar

Hello All,

Today I have, the review of  Marching with Caesar, conquest of Guals by R. W. Peake. Here we go:

      The book relives the days of Titus Pullus in 10th Legion of Caesar, who after 40 years in the Legions retired as Camp Prefect. The book, records momentous events from the eye of an ambitious, capable yet surprisingly young Gregarius (soldier) as he rises among the ranks to become Primus Pilus in a short span of 10 years showing us a lot about the Roman society in those days, the senate, the Caesar, the Gaulic tribes, the Briton and its fighting style, the spirits of Legionaries under Caesar, Caesar's engineering feats and guts, glory, discipline and lifestyle of legions.

     The book does a good job, of capturing the attention of young men and military enthusiasts alike. The book shows a lot about Titus Pullus and his life, about the training in the legions, about getting smacked by Vitus (a kind of stick), the cursing, the gods of roman legions and values in society, the importance of standards in an army, the intricate details about fighting positions, the marching formations, the camp fortification details, the fierce one to one battles, the relationship between tent mates and much more.

     The book also gives loads and loads of details on the enemy, his tactics, their gods, their way of life, their leaders, their courage, their way of fighting, their pitfalls and why might of Roman legions is always victorious. One must turn the pages of marching with Caesar, to learn about how Romans conducted a seize, how Romans make allies and enemies, how are allies and enemies treated, how cavalry is used, how day to day activities of camp are taken care of, how gambling, gossip, excessive pride, vices, illness and boredom take a toll in the legions and so on. There is a small amount of cursing, slang and such to truly impress me.

    The book, doesn't speak about battle alone and legions alone. It speaks about aftermath of battle, burying the dead, how heart wrecking it could be to see a mighty friend go down to a foe, how officers are made, how the battle wagons move, how communities are built around an army camp, how women are taken as wives in all but not name,  how relations between legionaries and their loved ones are strained, how legionaries get rich, how they see a hope for future, how years of fighting, killing and getting killed change the heart of young men who join the legions.

    In simple words I liked the book a lot. Though, at times I got bored learning the names and whereabouts of Gaulic tribes and their chieftains. A few details, I felt, were unnecessary at-least to me like what was happening to Caesar, how political enemies of Caesar wanted to destroy him and so on. The book ends on happy note, with the birth of son to Titus, who is named Vibus and never stops amazing Titus with the amount of CAC he generates.

with warm regards

Book Feature -- A Gathering Of Angels

Hello All,

Today I have to feature, A Gathering of Angels by Cate Dean. A short intro of the author and book blurb are here.

Author Intro:
Cate Dean has been writing since she could hold a pen in her hand and put more than two words together on paper.

A lover of all things supernatural, she infuses that love into her stories, giving them a unique edge. When she's not writing, she loves cooking, scaring herself silly in the local cemeteries, and reading pretty much anything she can get her hands on.
Book Blurb:
Claire Wiche sacrificed everything to keep her friends safe, revealing her true self. She expected the final battle to be the end for her. But she is back, breathing - and threatened by an enemy she doesn't have the means to fight.

An enemy bent on vengeance and possession, whatever the cost.

Author Interview -- Dee Doanes

Hello All, 
Today I have Dee Doanes the Author of The Man With the Green Suitcase doing a author interview for us.

Here we go:

Tell us about your book in a few sentences.
An old, homeless, mysterious man with a battered green suitcase has the unique power of showing visions to people about themselves and their lives that then come true. He has no memory of who he is. He has no control over his visions, but the visions always appear at a time when they are needed to help someone bring about a transformation in his or her life.
How did the plot for this book develop?
I woke up at 2 a.m. and thought of a poem I had written several years ago called The Man With the Green Suitcase. Aloud, I recited some lines from the poem, “His face filled with sweat. His eyes filled with fire. He’s waiting to be reborn. Until then he’s just walking. Just walking.” Those words were so strong inside my head. I thought, aha, this is the book! I ran to my computer to find the old poem since I couldn’t remember all the lines. I immediately wrote the ending—the last chapter of my book and went from there to develop the plot.

When did you decide that you must be an author?
I’ve bee writing since the age of six, so it wasn’t a conscious decision it was simply what I was born to do. As a child I always liked to read and write and had quite the imagination. I loved creating characters for stories.
Do you see yourself in any of the characters? Explain briefly.
My characters are flawed and trying to better themselves. They really have challenging moments and it’s hard for them. Valerie is a prostitute trying to get out of the business, Gerald is a corrupt businessman that needs to change his ways, and Chantal is a burned woman that lost her beauty. I can relate to making major changes in myself to be a better person. I’m constantly finding ways to improve myself. We all go through moments where we make bad choices. But hopefully we learn from our mistakes so we can live better lives.

Any further books or projects in the pipe?
I plan on getting the current book made into a movie, working on a new book, releasing a book of poetry, and doing poetry readings.
What’s one piece of advice from you to aspiring writers?
Be professional and joyful with your craft. Perfect your dialogue, improve your narration, and tighten up your plot.

Your favourite book and why?
Hmmm…it so hard to choose just one! But White Fang by Jack London caught my fancy as a child. The imagery in his book is so vivid. London really put you inside the head of what a wolf thinks. Every pain White Fang felt, I felt too. This is what reading a good book does to you!

Writer’s resources which everyone must have.
Besides keeping up with the great Another Author Blog, writers need to read other top book blogging sites. Join a writers group or association. Some good forums for writers are: and .

Your most rewarding experience as an author?
I love connecting with readers of all types to hear what they think about my writing and other author’s writing.

Your favourite quote about writing, creativity, motivation, etc.
This is a quote from a poem I wrote about writing that’s on the dedication page of my book: “When asked why I write, I say it is why I breathe. How I make my heart beat with life. It must be done so I can exist.”

Where can we find you online? How to reach you?
Here's where to find my book:
Available on Amazon. Kindle 99 cents
Paperback $19.99
Barnes and Noble 99 cents
You can find out more info about me on and email me at

Book Feature -- An Old Friend

Hello All,

Today I have, An Old Friend by Mark O'Neal and Amanda Matthews doing a book feature for us.

Mike Cross was living the glamorous life in the Windy City. He was a millionaire before thirty and the consummate ladies man who worked hard and played harder. However, crossing paths with his college roommate Devin Dinkins (Dink) years later would prove to be a costly error in judgement. Dink made his living hunting down hustlers, and Mike was no exception to the rule.

Mike's day got even more interesting when he met the girl of his dreams (Candi) and instantly fell in love. Will Mike settle down and change his ways, or will the playa get played? Or will he seek revenge on Dink? One thing is certain, his life would never be the same again.--x--

Book Feature -- How to Make $250 with 3D printer.

Hello All,

Today I have the book blurb of Christopher D Winnan's "How to Make $250 a day with 3D Printer".

3D printing is now at that same exciting stage that microcomputers reached back in 1975, when visionaries such as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were just about to make their very first millions. The Altair 8800 was the first of many personal computers that would revolutionise our entire way of life, and the same is happening now with 3D printers. The Economist has already described this as 'the third industrial revolution,' while Forbes states that 'additive manufacturing' as 3D printing is also known, will 'change the world.'

The rapid transition from obscure hobbyist product to mainstream consumer item is happening fast. Back in the late seventies, owning a PC largely meant that you had to build it yourself. At the end of the decade, the BBC decided that as the public service broadcaster of the UK, they were going to become early adopters of this revolutionary new technology, firstly by producing an educational documentary series on these new-fangled home computers, but also by backing one of the first small PC manufacturers. In 1979, an almost unknown company called Acorn had sales of a mere three thousand pounds, but was persuaded to produce the first BBC microcomputer. Just four years later in July of 1983, profits had rocketed to an enormous 8.6 million pounds, and in September of the same year, the company went public with a market capitalisation of a staggering 135 million pounds.

3D printing is at a very similar stage in its development at the moment, with just one major difference, the growth is much more accelerated than it was with the PC. It is estimated that there are already 30,000 people out there with 3D printers, that they have built themselves from kits and open source plans that are freely available on line, and thanks to the internet and the nature of 3D printers, this number is increasing virally. 3D printers have one huge advantage over PCs and that is that they can pretty much replicate themselves, a fact that is driving down the price very rapidly.

A 3D printer can turn a digital file into a physical object, either by loading a design or by scanning an object with their smart phone. The machine then constructs the object layer by layer, even creating moveable parts, different colors and a variety of materials from biodegradable plastics all the way up to titanium alloys. This obviously means less waste and an endless amount of design possibilities.

We are now at a stage when 3D printers are reaching a parity with iPads in terms of both price and ease of use. And of course, there are big profits to be made in this transition. This ebook is not about the technology itself but ways in which it can be leveraged by small businesses and home based entrepreneurs. Just as books on successful internet marketing do not cover technical maintenance of your PC, this ebook is focussed on how to profit from these devices, not how to build them.

Each chapter looks a burgeoning niche market that is crying out for 3D products as well as real world examples of entrepreneurs that are breaking new ground in these fields. Whether you want to make $250 dollars per day with one of these machines, or simply want to keep up with the latest technological developments, this is the book for you.

Wishing Christopher all success
