'GoneAway Into The Land' is a unique story that takes the reader on a journey through life as we follow the footsteps of John Greber, a young hero. At age twelve, John was brave enough to travel into the land of the unknown to confront his father face-to-face, better known as 'The Beast' through John's eyes. John made a secret vow to seek revenge on his abusive father, rescue his sister, and help his mother during a Civil War that threatens not only the land, but the world. As John guides the reader through the battle of horror, with survival as the ultimate goal, he becomes stronger each step of the way as he shares his strength with Ellie, and Marney. The reader can feel his strength as we continue a journey through the wonders of youth, learning life's intense lessons, while absorbing the pleasures of childhood. Can the reader relate to any of the dramatic events that takes place in the land of evil? Does the reader feel hope as the journey continues? Can a parent read through the mind of Ellie? Does Marney learn to treat John with respect, and admiration? I recommend this novel to teens, adults, and all fantasy lovers. Jeffrey B. Allen created a Masterpiece, a captivating story the reader can never forget. The author's wild imagination draws the reader in, like a magnet. The plot is superb, and his charismatic characters come to life. "GONEAWAY INTO THE LAND" is a riveting tale of not just John's epic journey, but also our journey through life. The vivid description of 'The Beast' is incredible. The remarkable journey is chilling, haunting, and mysterious as it takes the reader to a place with unforgettable consequences. John Greber tugs at the reader's heart as much as Trevor does in 'PAY IT FORWARD.' Jeffrey B. Allen's "GONEAWAY INTO THE LAND" transforms into an action-packed adventure that explodes into an awe-inspiring experience as if viewing one of Steven Spielberg's finest!



A young, innocent child is born. She is trusting, caring, and curious. Before she could learn about childhood happiness, meeting new friends, and social events, her entire world is turned inside out. She is forced to grow up overnight with the responsibility of being caretaker for her mother and sisters as she faces humiliation on the outside, while coping with an extremely dysfunctional family, behind closed doors. The youngest of six children becomes traumatized with hidden horrors as her little eyes can only see chaos, abuse, and addiction. While constantly striving to survive, her world becomes darker and much worse, before she finds a way out. She lived in everyday intense turmoil, insanity, and violence, while desperately attempting to ward off the demons. As she grew older, still searching for answers, she finds herself thriving in the same type of environment from where she grew up. Her childhood memories became nightmares of alcoholism, rape, and eating disorders with the painful reminder of what tomorrow may bring. To make matters worse, while suffering from childhood trauma, she finds herself in a toxic relationship of her own, but begins to see the light before her mother's passing. She holds on tight to a thin rope, while burying her fear of change and finds not only the courage to survive, but the burning desire to help others. Her beacon of hope is the bright light to the candle that Christa Jan Ryan has lit, which will remain burning until eternity, because it sends a message of strength to all those who have not yet seen the light. The heart-wrenching story told from one brave woman who came forward as she reaches out to others with inspiration, instead of sweeping the horrors under the carpet, not only tells the world about her spiritual awakening, but also her heroic escape. The message she gives is one of peace and hope, that if she could find a new beginning after being emotionally abandoned and physically and mentally abused, so can any person who is still living in a traumatized world. I highly recommend this book to all those who are searching for inspirational stories that encourage enlightment, hope, and guidance. The touching story will make you laugh and cry as the author begins to bury the nightmares, while embracing self-love on the road to success. The story is powerfully moving as a crisis in one woman's life sends her on a healing journey that not only repairs old wounds, but one that helps others to walk on the same path. Christa Jan Ryan shows others that there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel through her own compelling story, filled with motivation, and courage. "SILENT SCREAMS from the HAMPTONS" is as compelling as 28DAYS, as touching as THE COLOR PURPLE and as emotional as SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY, with Julia Roberts.

Oliver Surefoot was raised in a loving, caring family. He was taught, along with his brothers what the true meaning of morals and values are. As a young boy, Oliver had many good qualities, and his curiosity and way of thinking made him different from his brothers. Tom-Tom was strong like his dad and Jiffy was simply adorable, but Oliver was patient, intelligent, and compassionate. Although he never realized how strong he really was, his faith in God helped him to pass a test in life that he would never forget, as much as the reader will never forget Oliver. Three Fingers Cove consisted of many families that bonded together in love, happiness, friendship, and harmony. Then one day, that harmony turns into a nightmare, where love turned to fear, and changed the lives of all who lived there forever. This compelling story is a mirror image of what our future may hold, the doubts and mistrust we don't speak of and a reflection of the country we live in, filled with trials-and-tribulations. What would have happened to Oliver if he didn't believe in himself, or had no spiritual growth? Was it his faith that helped him to survive? Paul A. Ibbetson takes the reader on an emotional roller-coaster ride from the country to the city as we are introduced to unforgettable characters who come to life, while witnessing love, hatred, and sacrifice. Tippy Top was the beautiful home for its residents that made Three Fingers Cove a world to be proud of, until destruction and evil invaded peace and tranquility. Oliver was forced to walk on the road of faith, while facing many challenges, and life-threatening situations. I highly recommend this impressive, thrilling adventure to all fiction lovers who enjoy inspiring stories that are combined with politics, love, and war. The author fills the pages with chills, thrills, and drama that explodes from beginning to end. What secret did Sasha hide from Roger? Were the coyotes, foxes, and bobcats more terrifying than the bullies in the Union of the Curly Tail? Who was the worst predator of the forest? What happened to Crom, Grit, and Ruffy? Did the Gray Skunk win the battle, or does he win the war? Who did Ruby create a baby's crib for? What did the dying Opossum tell Oliver, and did this news change Oliver's life? Why did Oliver sneak off to the Ladies Foot in the middle of the night, and what did he witness? Who helped to save Jiffy's life, when he suffered illness with a fever? Does Laura fall in love with Oliver? The animals of the Cove join together to defeat the Gray Skunk in the battle of the Great Second War. As good fights evil, Mr. Muskin dies, and a baby boy is born. Who survives the revolution for freedom, and what price did many pay? What brought Oliver and Jiffy to the city as they face the evils of the tax-collectors, and dangerous gangs? What did Oliver do with the Roughnecks and the Tang Gang? What predators of the forest became Gray Skunk's killing machines? Where did Oliver hide Jiffy as he formed his own army? What did Smelas do to Oliver, how many babies did the Barnabump family lose, and who were the heroes of Tippy Top? Will Three Fingers Cove ever be the same, and what saved Oliver's life as he faced the Gray Skunk face-to-face? "OLIVER'S TALE" is as emotional as THE DEER HUNTER, as entertaining as SAVING PRIVATE RYAN and as thrilling as WE WERE SOLDIERS, with Mel Gibson.

Inspired by Dean Koontz, Marc Douglas created an incredible science fiction story with an imagination that sends chills up your spine page-after-page. A story based on corrupt governments, hatred, environmental crisis, and people living under difficult circumstances. This compelling story is woven with the elements that many people live with today in order to survive the trials and tribulations that life throws upon us. Genesis offers a new beginning, but what are the people faced with? The author takes the reader through a breathtaking adventure filled with love, war, courage, compassion and brutality. The issue of controlling life, combined with humanity and survival light up each page from beginning to end. Two flights crash on Genesis, which group of survivors are forced to live under a ruthless dictator? How did Leader and Shawna lose their son, and must they go to war? Where was Deak and Rachel escorted to, and did they ever see their son? What were the rules of the Federation, and what criminal acts did they commit? What was Dean and Rachel's only way out, and did Dean's plan work? Were the lives of the board members in the Federation controlled? What did George do to Dean and Rachel, and what happened to George? I highly recommend this compelling novel to all science fiction lovers, who enjoy mesmerizing stories filled with suspense, drama, and a blend of romance. Did the Federation create a clone of Joseph Lightsayer, and what was their motive? Was Joseph killed, or did he survive? Was profit the top priority for the Federation? Did the competition for jobs become another war? How many survived from Starship thirty-three, and how did the survivors aboard flight twenty-nine adapt to their new life? What was the difference between Oxxtown and Castletown? What group did THE PACK not understand, and where were their pups taken to? If the events ever came true as witnessed in this thrilling story, what would our future hold? Where would we go as population increases, environment is destroyed and resources dwindle down to nothing, what would we do to survive? Marc Douglas becomes a Master storyteller on space travel, political corruption and terrorism in a remarkable adventure that the reader could never forget. As the clock ticks and time moves on, will hope bring new life? Who was controlling the population of Castletown? What did THE PACK sense about the colony led by Lothar and Hunter? Did Leader trust Long Hair and her mate? Where was Max taken to, and did he ever see his wife again? What did Rock's mother teach him? Wonder turns to horror as the ships crash in this electrifying novel, made for the movie screen. "SLINGSHOT" is as terrifying as INDEPENDENCE DAY and as haunting as Steven King's THE LANGOLIERS!
