Deuxmers Publishing releases ‘Tales From the Liminal’ – Mother of Eleven Gives Birth to Fifteen Short Stories

MADISON, Wis. -- After getting a degree in English from UW-Madison and debuting her fiction in The Onion, author S. K. Kruse found herself on a twenty-five-year sabbatical to raise eleven children, while also managing a non-profit and writing a rock opera in her spare time. Now down to the last three teenagers, Kruse has spent the last five years gestating two novels and a brood of short stories, fifteen of which appear in her first published book, "Tales From the Liminal" (ISBN 978-1944521158, Deuxmers), available for sale on Amazon on October 12, 2021.

"Kruse brilliantly interweaves the fantastical and metaphysical with the everyday realities of life, with stories brimming with insight and compassion for humanity," said Omer Kursat of Deuxmers Publishing.

In this collection of curious and delightful short stories, the readers never know who they're going to meet next, but they always find themselves smack dab in the middle of some befuddling predicament of existence: following Schrödinger's cat into the zeroth dimension, grooving to Barry Manilow with Bigfoot on a beach, traveling with a troubadour of the apocalypse to Belleville, or having drinks with a woman who has seen Gertrude Stein in the condensation on her window.

Using humor, horror, satire and allegory, Kruse submerges the reader in liminal landscapes where anything is possible, especially transformation.

In a review of Kruse's writing, Timothy Cech, fiction editor for Reed Magazine said, "It's a breed of storytelling that encases an entire cosmos within a compact form, with prose that pulses with life ..."

Legacy Launch Pad Publishing releases business book by navy captain-turned-entrepreneur Gene Moran

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Legacy Launch Pad Publishing is releasing the second book by entrepreneur Gene Moran, founder and president of the consulting firm Capitol Integration. "Make Your Move: Charting Your Post-Military Career" (ISBN 978-1-951407-79-7) synthesizes Moran's experiences as a former Naval officer, lobbyist and lifelong sailor to create an entertaining, information-packed guide for those transitioning out of the military or through post-military life-or anybody facing a major career change.

Throughout the book, Moran shares powerful moments from his young life, including learning to sail in South Florida and traveling the world as a young Naval officer. Along the way, he introduces the reader to world leaders who shaped his higher purpose and guided his progress-including Jimmy Buffett.

While Moran left the Navy in 2008 and has already published a bestselling book about business, Make Your Move is more of a personal calling-his legacy written to help others. It's about the importance of finding mentors, learning from your mistakes and discovering how to apply self-sufficiency-all keys to finding fulfillment.

This book is more than a guide to success, says publisher Anna David. "It's also an adventure story about Gene's extraordinary life of service, leadership and passion," she says. "It's about maintaining a growth mindset throughout your life and using Gene's five-part system-planning, strategy, courage, leadership, diplomacy and ownership-to make successful transitions."

As part of his mission to give back to the military community, Moran will donate 100 percent of his proceeds from this book to Freedom Fighter Outdoors, a nonprofit organization that provides unique outdoor experiences for injured veterans.

"Make Your Move: Charting Your Post-Military Career" is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, among many other outlets.

MacLean seamlessly weaves her personal experiences as a high-powered investment banker, former buyer at Bloomingdale's, angel investor, founder of three companies and mother of five into this guide for the female CEOs of tomorrow.

She offers sage advice, unabashedly shares her mistakes along the way and asks useful questions that will serve as a guidebook on building a successful company from the ground up regardless of the industry. Adding supplemental wisdom and anecdotes from the high-powered women she interviews on her top-rated podcast, The Badass CEO, MacLean has created the ideal roadmap for women who want to follow in her stead and pave their own way to success.

"As a female founder, I'm incredibly proud to be involved with a book that will empower so many women," says publisher Anna David. "Mimi is a superwoman and while we may not all be able to accomplish as much as she does, we can at least learn how she does it with this book."

MacLean's mission with "How to Be a Badass Female CEO" is as ambitious as her other goals. "I want to see women smash sales goals year after year, taking their ingenious inventions and gorgeous designs into markets all around the globe," she says. "I want to see women who start out as entry-level assistants end up at the head of the boardroom table, remaking the image of the CEO into one that's fierce, feminine and running things on her own terms."

"How to Be a Badass Female CEO: Slay the Competition and Reach the Top" is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, among many other outlets.

Greek American Author Releases New Memoir ‘Sophia’s Return’

SEATTLE, Wash. -- The new book by author Sophia Kouidou-Giles, "Sophia's Return: Uncovering My Mother's Past" (She Writes Press - September 7, 2021 - ISBN: 978-1647421717 | $16.95. E-ISBN: 978-1647421724 | $9.95) follows a daughter's journey to understand why her mother left their family home when the author was a seven-year-old child, without a good-bye or explanation.

Decades later Sophia travels back to Greece, determined to find her mother's grave and finally learn about the reasons for her parents' divorce. As she digs, she begins to realize how clashing cultures between her Greek-born mother and her father's early years in Turkey wreaked havoc on the marriage. Determined to unlock the true story, she interviews family members, all of whom are sympathetic but reluctant to disclose information. Finally, she hires an attorney to search for documents-and uncovers a story she never knew existed.

"In life's journey," said Kouidou-Giles, "it seems the unknowns of the past rule us more than the uncertain future, and sometimes the deceased influence us more than the living. It appears that time is not linear, the present is a false, precarious moment, where we endlessly strive to remain able to stand for ourselves."

Written with illuminating insights and a mature understanding of what forced her mother's decision to abandon their home, Sophia's compassionate, authentic recounting of her journey will encourage those who search for the truth to persist in seeking answers to life's unanswered questions.

About the Author

In her 34 year child welfare career, she served as a practitioner, educator, researcher and administrator publishing articles in Greek and English professional journals with a focus on child welfare services to abused/neglected children, and statewide responsibilities in child care licensing and adolescent services for youth in foster care in the State of Washington.

In recent years, her focus has shifted to writing non-fiction and poetry. Her Greek Language memoir, "Επιστροφή Στη Θεσσαλονίκη," published by Tyrfi Press in Greek, in 2019, is available in all Greek bookstores and in the US direct from the Author.

Multi-Faceted Entertainer Vanessa Williams Spotlights New American Founding Figure Slave Heroine with Foreword in Creative Nonfiction Release, ‘Espionage and Enslavement in the Revolution’

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Multi-award-winning entertainer Vanessa Williams has penned a moving book foreword that shines the spotlight on an amazing tale of spying and slavery during the Revolutionary War while unveiling an unlikely heroine. "Espionage and Enslavement in the Revolution: The True Story of Robert Townsend and Elizabeth" by Claire Bellerjeau and Tiffany Yecke Brooks, published by Lyons Press, is a fascinating historical narrative that takes place in the North during the 18th century and details the intertwining of two lives, a Revolutionary War spy, Robert Townsend and an enslaved woman, known only as Elizabeth or Liss.

Robert Townsend, one of America's first spies, is credited with being instrumental in the colonies' victory in the Revolutionary War. Liss' life travails, as laid out in this riveting creative nonfiction, coupled with her intelligence, beauty and prowess, position her as a new figure in the founding story of America.

Bellerjeau, an acclaimed historian and the Director of Education at Raynham Hall Museum, the former home of the Townsend family in Oyster Bay, New York, has researched the Townsend family and those they enslaved for over sixteen years. Her discovery of Liss lends important credence to not only the experience of a woman of color during America's founding period, but also contributes valuable insight into the extent of slavery in the North, long before the Civil War.

Slavery was not just a 19th-century issue. In fact, there were 244 years between the arrival of the first African slaves to the colony of Virginia in 1619 to the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. By contrast, there have only been 158 years between 1863 and 2021, with the United States having a longer history as a nation with slavery than without it. American history is grossly misrepresented when slavery is only acknowledged as an occurrence in the middle of the 19th century.

In "Espionage and Enslavement in the Revolution," we learn that Liss was first enslaved in Oyster Bay on Long Island, NY in the 1770's during the Revolutionary War by Robert Townsend's family. Townsend became a spy for George Washington and a key member of the legendary Culper Spy Ring. She escaped with a British commander named Col. Simcoe, later was re-enslaved in New York City, and after the war was separated from her toddler son and transported to Charleston, South Carolina where she was enslaved yet again. Robert's persistent efforts to bring her back to New York and reunite her with her child are the second half of this amazing narrative.

Vanessa Williams' own ancestral ties to Oyster Bay, which also date back to the early 1800's, endeared her personally to the tale of a woman that history overlooked. "Claire was able to trace my lineage back to the 1820's, all the way back to a time when slaves did not have a last name. I found her research about Liss captivating and intriguing. Here was a brave Black woman from Oyster Bay who started life as a slave, became involved with the spy Robert Townsend, and may have been a spy herself. She finally achieved her freedom all in the same area where my roots as an American go back hundreds of years. Historically marginalized stories are at last being brought to the forefront and Liss rises like a phoenix among them. Claire's Bellerjeau's collaborative effort with Tiffany Brooks brings history to life and reveals a new African American female hero, Liss!" cites Vanessa Williams.

"When I first uncovered Liss' story, not only was she completely invisible, but the very idea that there was slavery in New York during the Revolution was completely foreign to almost everyone," notes Bellerjeau. "In popular culture, we are generally given broad brush-stroke tropes about heroic figures like George Washington, Paul Revere, and the Sons of Liberty, and significant events like the Boston Massacre. For several years I resisted connecting Liss to the Townsend spy story, but as my research continued, the two stories merged. To me, what makes her so important in American history is we haven't had a person of color to focus on, to see the Revolution through their eyes. Our story, while unfolding among the well-known people and places of the Revolution, gives the reader a rare glimpse of what life was really like for enslaved people struggling though the upheaval of the time."

"The book is of interest for many reasons," adds Tiffany Yecke Brooks, "not the least of which is that Liss' story touched so many different headliners from early American history. Our book gives America a way of seeing the northern theater of the war, which is part of our cultural legacy, but also opens our eyes to northern slavery. To see how deeply slavery was ingrained in New York is shocking. But to acknowledge the many roles and dynamics that everyone played, and not a select view, is critical to the true telling of history."

"My continuing focus is going to be to bring this story to a national audience," says Bellerjeau. "I'm grateful for the interest shown by Vanessa Williams and hoping her connection to the story will raise even more awareness. Liss is symbolic of so many unheralded voices and stories from our collective past. She's a national founding figure."

‘Human Dimension’ intensifies in Delta Tango Trilogy Book 2

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Border Patrol Agent-to-be Layne Sheppard has met the girl of his dreams as The Delta Tango Trilogy continues with Book Two: "Felina's Spell" (ISBN: 978-1631955457), released by Morgan James Publishing and available in stores and online now.

Excerpt: Inevitably, his thoughts quickly returned to Felina . . . She was far and away the most attractive and alluring girl who had ever reciprocated his attention.

The question to be answered is: Can Layne make the grade as a full-fledged border agent and win the love of Felina Camarena Rivera? Or will he meet his demise in the field training gauntlet that awaits? Will his serious drinking problem undermine all that he is pursuing? Is their relationship destined or doomed?

Prize-winning author Margaret Coel has called The Delta Tango Trilogy, by the late Christopher LaGrone, "essential and gripping."

After reading "Felina's Spell" and its companion novels, Coel also commented: "The Delta Tango Trilogy is a heartbreakingly honest tale of the lives that intersect and are forever changed along our bleak and dangerous southern border."

Once a Border Patrol agent himself, LaGrone draws on his own experiences as a recruit, field trainee and border agent to create a border saga unlike any previously published immigration-themed novel. What distinguishes it, as Felina's Spell shows so well, is that it looks at border enforcement from the perspective of the line agent, humanizing it in ways not previously portrayed.

The Trilogy will be completed when Book 3: "Moments of Truth" is released in December 2021.

LaGrone died of altitude sickness in the Andes in December 2018. For the story behind these books as related in the "From Tragedy to Trilogy" video, Go to: YouTube, Tragedy to Trilogy at https://youtu.be/Q2CFgKPek3o.

Cirsova Publishing to Collect Nearly-Lost Pulp Works of Julian Hawthorne

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Cirsova Publishing will be collecting and restoring the nearly-lost All-Story Weekly fiction of Julian Hawthorne, son of famed American author Nathaniel Hawthorne.

In Spring of 2021, Cirsova Publishing partnered with Michael Tierney and Robert Allen Lupton to restore and reprint "The Cosmic Courtship," a near-lost science fiction novel by Julian Hawthorne. Following the success of this project, Cirsova Publishing established a new Cirsova Classics imprint dedicated to restoring and reprinting other near-lost pulp fiction.

Given the interest in "The Cosmic Courtship," Cirsova has prioritized collecting the rest of Hawthorne's All-Story Weekly fiction in a standard format. In addition to "The Cosmic Courtship," Hawthorne had one novel and four novellas published in the Munsey magazine.

"The Strange Recollections of Martha Klemm" resurrects Hawthorne's pulp heroine, a witty and modern woman with a touch of clairvoyance and descent from Salem witches, in two volumes, collecting Absolute Evil, A Goth From Boston, and Sara Was Judith. A third volume will collect the stand-alone romances, Doris Dances and Fires Rekindled.

These collected editions of Julian Hawthorne's All-Story Weekly fiction will be released later in 2021.

Simultaneously laugh out loud hilarious and deeply heartbreaking, Chittick's memoir serves as a guide not only for anyone navigating loss but for anyone who needs a reminder that happiness can come in the most surprising places.

"It feels a little inappropriate to admit this about a memoir about losing your husband but I howled with laughter on almost every page of this book," says publisher Anna David. "Kelsey has a gift I've never seen before of weaving hilarity into tragedy. She's pretty much who I want to be when I grow up, even though I'm older than her."

"Second Half: Surviving Loss and Finding Magic in the Missing" is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, among many other outlets.
