Each story pokes at the illusion of normality in modern life. These tales promise that there is always something sinister lurking below the surface.

A Word from the Author

Author Nasser Rabadi pictureStrange Tales and Poems from The Witches’ Cauldron is my first published work. It took me 8 months to write, and was my second attempt at a novel. My first attempt, Stone Road, reached almost the half way point when I had given up. Later, I edited it to a short story and it is the final story in this collection. My stories are all pretty much horror, minus one or two that are sort of experimental. The poetry was my first time doing poetry. I got into poetry as a new way to express myself, while also trying to write outside my comfort zone. The poems range from nonsensical wordplay (example: Beatles song “I Am the Walrus”), randomness, existential/depressing, all the way to lovey dovey. I am already writing a sequel, as well as six comic book titles that aren’t in print yet but one is being drawn as we speak. The stories in here are all unique, and don’t resemble any other authors work. We have a story of the collapse of time itself, we have a story about a lady with vivid dreams that seep into reality because of a doll given to her as a gift (my personal favorite), and many other. All the stories and poems flow in and out of each other with small connections and repeat characters on occasion, as well as repeat locations. But i will say this: If poems aren’t your thing: skip them!

A Word from the Author

Author Claudy Conn pictureCraving-First Thirst came to me because of my readers who took the time to write and tell me they wanted another vampire series.
My stories are character driven. Everyone who plays a part in the making of a story comes to life and tells me their point of view.

Devin’s character from the start was a given. He is a man whose life is ripped out from under him. Drawn immediately into evil, he breaks away and is determined to overcome the beast within.

Bobbie Skye is my heroine, a witch who experienced compassion and love when her parents were taken from her and her mom’s best friend, Elle stepped up and took her in. Thus, she is all heart, and so it begins. Craving-First Thirst (Book #1)

Under A namibian Sky by Angelina Kalahari full cover

 

Know More

Beautiful, vivacious, independent young Naomi grew up on the edge of the Namib Desert. After she becomes a safari guide, nothing is more exciting than showing off her desert’s fierceness, its raw beauty, and its exotic wildlife to guests staying at Desert Lodge.

Luca, the heir apparent to the Armati supercar dynasty, is blessed with the beauty of an Italian god and born to a life of wealth, power, and influence. In Namibia for a short holiday, he wants to fulfil his dream of photographing and painting African elephants.

Used to the wiles of such spoiled princelings, Naomi is suspicious of his motives. Begrudgingly, she feels drawn to his kindness, charm and aura. Impossibly, it appears he is equally drawn to the girl from the African desert.

But will the pain of their past experiences prevent them from being courageous enough to admit their soul mate connection? Will their love overcome the challenges they face when Luca ends up in hospital after a dangerous anti-poacher raid, and Naomi has to confront her fears about falling in love with him?

Compulsively readable, Under A Namibian Sky is an emotionally riveting romance that will enchant, fascinate and delight.




A Word from the Author

Author Angelina Kalahari pictureOriginally, I wrote Under A Namibian Sky as an experiment to see if Mills and Boon (Harlequin to many of you) would accept it. Initially, they seemed very excited by the synopsis and three chapters I’d submitted. They sent a long email with suggestions for changes, and I felt encouraged by this. I spent several weeks implementing their ideas and suggestions and resubmitted, only to receive a rejection letter from them soon afterwards.

I wasn’t downhearted, however. Receiving notes and rejections in my previous career as an operatic soprano, was just part of the job.

By now, the characters were alive and talking to me. They wouldn’t shut up. I had no choice but to write their story in Under A Namibian Sky. More than the characters’ incessant chatting, the other reason I had to write the novel, is because Namibia is where I was born. As I seldom return there, it was such an unexpected joy to visit the place I love so dearly in this way. I know those people. I know Desert Lodge, the setting for the book. Writing the novel took me back completely. It felt as though I was on holiday there during the writing process.

I don’t know if it’s the familiarity of the people and the place that promoted such ease of flow. One chapter flowed into another so effortlessly. I could hardly believe it.

The story, while a contemporary romance, retains the integrity of the desert, and the purity of the people who live there. It is perhaps the reason one reviewer on Amazon wrote: “What a lovely, old-fashioned love story. It reminded me of M.M. Kaye and Mary Stewart. It was an enjoyable read, allowing me to escape to a distant, exotic land.”

The fact that those two writers are well-loved and have been read by millions of readers can only bode well for Under A Namibian Sky.
