In today’s world, information sharing is something that we just learned we are not good at… we are not good at getting the right information to the right people…

One man had a dream – a dream to share the information and messages with the people who need it most, and that dream became a reality. He made the Blizzy Code – a secondary communication system with the ability to provide life-saving information without interruption…

Blizzy codes – perhaps one of the best parts of Jordan’s life so far. Everyone could tell how proud he was of this technology as it was eventually going to affect people’s lives for the better.

That’s all Jordan ever wanted to do, though; to touch lives and help the people around him. This is why he designed this technology to get anyone everything they could ever think of without having to sweat for it. Yes, that was it!

Although the people saw this new technology as something spectacular, truthfully, no one understood its philosophy yet. Today was the day Jordan was going to teach the world about the essence of Blizzy codes, flaunting this new technology to the whole of New York, to the world…

With Blizzy Codes, the creator of real-life messaging technology of the same name, Michael Butler gives an in-depth explanation of what the technology does and the philosophy behind his life’s work through an intricately designed fiction story.

The characters may be fictional, but the events are not. So get ready to follow Jordan as he tries to bring his technology to life and find out what is this new technology the world is buzzing about!

From the prolific, up-and-coming author, Michael Butler, comes “Black Redemption” — a story of circumstance, fate, choice, and redemption. Author showcased at the 2021 Juneteenth celebration, “Black Redemption” celebrates the resilience of the African American and Jewish spirit. Yet, despite the odds stacked against them, protagonists
Trey, Maxwell, and Isaac lived, learned, and redeemed themselves despite unfortunate circumstances, despite adverse fates, despite poor choices.

Trey and Isaac are best friends with contrasting upbringings. Isaac’s family builds on religiousness, peace, understanding, unity, anti-racism, and imparting the proper virtues and moral standards to their children. On the other hand, Trey’s family is separated by disputes, negligence, and disunity. Yet, instead of feeling disheartened, Trey is overwhelmed with hope — a hope that things can and will get better so long as there is
personal accountability. This is our world. Let’s make it a better place, and we have the power to make a change by doing the next right thing.
Problems become even more apparent to Trey when he reunites with his brother Maxwell under extraordinary circumstances years after leaving his tumultuous
home. Yet, by taking control of their fortunes, can these young men overcome
African American Racism and Antisemitism in the United States and prove that
they could rise above Gun Violence and change the status quo despite the
odds? *** “Black Redemption” by Michael Butler is a compelling
suspense drama that serves as a commentary on the saga of our nation as it
battles racism and Gun Violence against the African American and Jewish
population. And that, through compassion, tolerance, and the proper gun
interventions, all violence against all people can be reduced. “Black
Redemption” took Ten years and countless hours of dedication to write,
backed by remarkable research and development, and presented to New York
City as a new initiative in an immersive virtual reality format. Today, it
has seen sweeping reviews from readers and featured in the Caribbean Chamber
of Commerce and many other Publications.

cover

~~~

One mother’s life will change in the blink of an eye—and there’s no going back.

Elaine’s worst fears become reality when her beloved son Jakob is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. She needs to find a bone marrow donor, and time is running out. But while awaiting test results to see if she’s a possible match, Elaine learns a shocking truth about her son; a truth that threatens to send her back to the pills that almost destroyed her life once before; a truth that pushes her already fragile mental state to the breaking point.

Jakob is not her biological son. For years, she has been raising someone else’s child.

Even as the family faces this new crisis, a ghost from Elaine’s past emerges to jeopardize everything she’s built. But is the threat real, or is it all in her mind?

Elaine needs to stay strong for her son, but as her whole reality continues to unravel, she can’t trust anyone—not even herself.

NOTE: Books in the ‘Secrets of Suburbia’ Series can be read as standalones, but are linked by common themes of motherhood, suburbia not being as safe as you think, and how the perfect, sanitized version of life that people often show is far from the truth. Gripping stories with shocking twists just a click away.

Check out this hot new kidnapping-thriller series that readers love!

Federal prosecutor Athena Kazan adores her job—until someone puts a bullet in her head. Miraculously, she survives the shooting, but her troubles have just begun. A drug cartel wants her dead, and it will pay a big bounty to make that happen.

For two years, Athena lives in Durango, Colorado as part of the witness protection program. Then, in a chance encounter, she meets a pregnant woman at a local gas station. The woman unobtrusively slips a note into Athena’s hand. The message reads: Over forty women and girls—mostly pregnant—held prisoner! Five dead already. We’re an hour east of Durango. Call the FBI. Sheriff’s office corrupt. PLEASE HELP US!

Before Athena can react, a huge armed thug forces the pregnant woman into an SUV. Athena can’t stop him, but she memorizes the SUV’s license number. Then, panic rises in her throat. What if the plate is fake? She follows the SUV at a distance while she calls the FBI and begs for help.

The Feeb turns her down. He’s too busy, he says. Fighting the terror that Athena had hoped she’d never have to experience again, she stays behind the SUV as it drives east of Durango. Her instincts tell her to forget this whole horrible situation. It’s probably just a prank, and if it isn’t, she’ll most likely get shot again.

But Athena knows that if she turns away and tries to forget the pregnant women, she won’t be able to live with herself. After all, a Good Samaritan had helped her once when she was desperate. It’s time to pay it forward.

#BookReview “Love Me Tender” by Lorraine Mace

 

Love Me Tender Cover

~~~

5/5 Stars!

Always a pleasure to sit down with my guy, Paolo Sterling, even when he’s off his game.

The former DI is now Detective Chief Inspector but doesn’t feel any of the pride and sense of accomplishment such promotions usually bring. It’s been six months since his protegee and good friend, DS Dave Johnson was murdered, and Paolo’s grief is as painful as the day it happened. And it doesn’t help that the man he holds most responsible for bullying and goading Dave, DC Jack Cummings, has a target on Paolo’s back.

However, what I love most about the DCI is he trudges on.

The drug overdose of one young woman and the murder of another who believed she was being stalked appear unconnected. But when another woman goes missing, Sterling and his team find links to all three women, a local nightclub, a popular gym… and far too many shady, drug-dealing characters who could all be killers.

When Jack is brutally attacked while on a voluntary stakeout of the nightclub, Paolo’s stress and guilt are only deepened. He detested the man but he didn’t wish that kind of harm on him.

The assault on Jack—and the misguided rantings of his boss—are gut punches to the DCI that serve to spur him on to resolve the investigations… and find the missing woman alive.

Lorraine Mace does a superb job of taking us inside the mind of a sociopath twisted by his upbringing.  Raised by his equally psychotic and abusive grandfather whom he hates and the submissive grandmother he adores, this murderer never stood a chance. He’s almost a sympathetic character, except for the kidnapping and killing part.

CC—DS Cathy Connors—is a standout as Paolo’s new “partner.” She knows Dave’s death is with her boss daily, and she knows when to push and when to give him space while still being a stellar investigator.

Lydia, the ex-wife is still around. Grrr.  She was a coworker of the murdered woman and the reason Paolo got involved even before they knew she’d been killed. The murder heightens their concern for their daughter, Katy, off volunteering in remote villages in Africa and out of touch for weeks at a time. However, even without all the arguing and blame-placing, I’m still not a Lydia-fan. Meh.

Rebounding from his assault, Jack’s continued lies and machinations only serve to tighten the noose around Sterling’s neck and threaten his job. But the pragmatic detective has grown weary of being the whipping boy and does what he does best… solve cases. As I said, he trudges on, but with a lighter step and his confidence back in place.

This is another great installment in the Sterling series that delivers!

Enjoy!
