of a Minchon Warrior

 

AmazonBook

 

NOW AVAILABLE!

 

In the genre of Dan Millman’s “The Way of the Peaceful Warrior”, join Captain Delightable on a gentle journey — a story that traverses Space-Time and tells of a love that grows through the ages — to discover what is real while searching for the answer to one amazing question: What is possible if one truly believes?

Former Ship’s Captain, Cornelius Alexander Delightable, claims he is a 150-year-old Minchon Warrior. Personally trained in Universal Truths and Values by the High Priest on the mystical island of Minchon, he declares himself to be in possession of special magical powers.

While his granddaughter worries the old man is suffering from the ravaging effects of senility, she tries to manage her life and the lives of her children without the aid of her father and husband who were both killed in World War I.

The captain’s great-grandchildren, Robert and Wendy, however, are convinced the captain’s every word is true.

Falling in Love With My Own Demise

Falling in Love

With My Own Demise

 

Planned for 2015

 

There are some who would say that together, firearms and a crazy lover are she-demons best to be avoided. For me, both were love at first sight. And the wild affair lasted years. It was a delirious time for me. It was a glorious time for them. And it served them well. Until their loving embrace nearly destroyed me.
       The echo of their words haunts me still. Their adoring and terrible voice, their tender, enveloping expressions beckoning me onward to my doom.
        Their voice is sweet. Their voice is pure. There is no deceit in their alluring words—they want me dead!

My Life Before the

Bottle Went Dry
 

NOW AVAILABLE!


   “Zany, insane, crazy fun, and morbidly dark”

 These are just some of the adjectives that will come to your mind as you read the poems and short stories of Robert Henry Walz.

Robert lived his whole existence in anticipation of one day setting down his life experiences in a single book of poetry and short stories.

From his “wild child” youth, through his terror-filled times as a Marine in Vietnam, to his seemingly self-destructive life that followed, Robert lived with a verve that can only be expressed through his poetry and short stories contained here.

Add to this, the zany attempt of “suicide by Taliban” when he ventured into Afghanistan alone, only to discover the value of life — that’s an adventure sure to excite. Still, such a trip only served to scream all the more about what Robert wanted in his life . . . to go out in a blaze of glory. So, it is very strange that one who lived to die ultimately discovered the joy of being alive. He expressed this best through his unique artwork and writing.

You will laugh, you will cry, you will ask yourself why. The crazy life of Robert Henry Walz is here in black and white for all to enjoy . . . to accept or to reject.

Whatever your final verdict, you will be entertained.

Into the Light Boldly

. . . an odyssey of self-discovery

 

AmazonBook

 

NOW AVAILABLE!

An unorthodox and controversial slap to the face of the status quo, Into the Light Boldly … an odyssey of self-discovery, an audacious new novel by Amazon Best Selling Author, Val Edward Simone, is a shockingly frank, honest, and daring undertaking regarding death and dying a most frightening subject.

Mr. Simone’s fearless assault on the standards of established philosophy, religion, and storytelling rushes the reader along on a breathtakingly wild ride into the spiritual world never before explored in this way.

It’s a bareback dash on galloping honesty, a crazy and bold space shot into the universal unknown, a valiant and carefree dance with the devil into the realms of the spirit on its way toward an eccentric understanding of what might be waiting for us on the other side of this life — the mysterious world of life after life. Meld with the mind of a master storyteller and delve into a new view of an age-old terror.

The paradigm is shifting. There’s a new order of thought regarding our place in the hereafter.

Will you be one of those unafraid to explore this new thinking?

Will you be one of those unafraid to step into the light boldly?

Sometimes, for no particular reason and in the most unexpected ways, heaven sends special gifts to Earth.
