Walking to Babylon is a dark, gritty tale of two transplanted New Jersey boys who grow up together in the desert city of Las Vegas, busting balls for the old man. Sammy Soriano tells us the story as he walks away from a burning car where the body of his lifelong pal, Tommy Two-Guns Viglierchio had been left, along with those of three Mexican nationals that had tried to muscle in on the action. Viglierchio has been losing his battle with cancer for some time and Soriano knew it. There was nothing that he could do to help his friend other than be there for him.




A Word from the Author

Walking to Babylon first appeared in the British Multiple Myeloma Charity Anthology, Paladins, as the short story—Low and Outside.
Sammy Soriano tells his story over a couple of beers at a farm team baseball game in Las Vegas, where the story takes place.
His lifelong pal—Tommy Two-Guns Viglierchio—had cancer and he knew it. There just wasn’t anything that he could do other than be there for him. The story drew its name from a lousy pitch that you just had to stand and watch go by.
While waiting for the anthology to print, I decided that Soriano had more of a story to tell than 7700 words could and Walking to Babylon came to be, finding a home with Solstice Publishing. In the novel version we get to look a little deeper into the lives of those riding roughshod over the Las Vegas underbelly.
If you enjoy bright lights and the casino nightlife, why not take a walk with Sammy in this short novel length story of dope and crime and shallow graves in the desert?

Ain’t No Law in California is a hard hitting post-apocalyptic western, where the bad guys are quick on the draw and the lawmen are even quicker.

Dan Bardwell and his young partner Franklin Curtis allow us to ride along as they traipse across the badlands of the great state of Sacramento in what was once known as California. Decades after a global nuclear war nearly destroys mankind, the two tin star lawmen are tasked with keeping law and order and will chase outlaws through both Hell and high water to get them. Often times they’ll operate in a gray area of the law just to get their man.




A Word from the Author

Author Christopher Davis picture

Ain’t No Law in California, originally started along the line of a traditional western. The story took place soon after the civil war in the fictional Hard Times Virginia. During three complete rewrites of the story, elements of science fiction crept in. Three of the original characters were scrapped and replaced by the five-pointed Sacramento lawman, Dan Bardwell who had been in nearly every one of my western short stories that had been published. Bardwell, coupled with the jive talking Franklin Curtis was a perfect match for the story that came about.

Taking place a hundred years after mankind was set back by a nuclear war; Ain’t No Law in California incorporates elements of post-apocalyptic, science fiction with steampunk. Ride along with the tin-star Sacramento lawmen Dan Bardwell and Franklin Curtis as they track down one outlaw after another.

Curiosity Killed the Craving is a self-help book by Raj Fernandes.
full cover Curiosity Killed the Craving - quit smoking without the fuss by Raj Fernandes

Quitting smoking doesn’t have to be intimidating.
Having smoked for over 40 years, I had tried all sorts of methods of quitting. But no matter what I tried, the cravings would always return to haunt me. All attempts to overcome cravings failed until I discovered a simple technique that helped me get the better of them. The secret turned out to be my own mind. So I practiced observing the onset of cravings in a curious, mindful way. This helped me acknowledge the presence of cravings rather than struggle with them.

In my new no-nonsense quit smoking book CURIOSITY KILLED THE CRAVING., I share what has worked for me and guide you through the process from preparing to quit, to the realities of the first few days without nicotine, to making positive lifestyle changes going forward. It is full of practical tips and personal experiences. Quitting is never easy, but trust me, if I can do it anyone can.

So say goodbye to Nicotine (or Mr. Nic as I know him) today!




A Word from the Author

Author Raj Fernandes picture 2Having smoked cigarettes for well over 40 years the thought that I should ‘pack it in’ hit me hard one night. At 11pm on that eventful night I happily dumped three packets of cigarettes, my legendary glass ashtray, and four lighters. That was me giving Mr Nicotine the push – I never wanted to see him again. I quit smoking for two reasons – to live a healthier life and secondly spread the word out there by sharing my story.

Since then my quit journey has been fascinating. Fascinating because it has made me discover the wonders and power of my own mind. I’ve been watching my mind with mind, so to speak. It taught me to use curiosity in a positive way. Hence the title of the book CURIOSITY KILLED THE CRAVING.

To be honest I would not have achieved this without my strong efforts to read up on the subject of addictions, take advice and get the support of a quit smoking community. Today I feel new. I feel clean. I feel energetic. I feel in control. More than anything, I feel proud of myself. If a weak-willed person like me can do it, so can you.
Writing a book has always been on my bucket list and I am proud to have pulled this off. But hey, I could not have done this without the assistance of my publishers. They have been amazing. What’s more it enlightened and educated me on the writing process; right from the first manuscript right down to editing, proofreading, structuring etc. It proved to me that learning is an enjoyable life long process.

CURIOSITY KILLED THE CRAVING is different in the sense that it approached smoking addiction in a curious, mindful way. Then again it is a bite-sized, easily digestible book (just 58 pages) and it’s packed with practical tips from preparing to quit to lifestyle changes. My mission is to truly, honestly see more people stop this disgusting and deadly habit!
