Author Steven Greenberg has just released his new dystopian suspense novel, Enfold Me. It became available on May 28, 2012 and can be purchased through Amazon.com and may be loaned through the Prime program.
Written by an Israeli, Enfold Me is a dark journey into a chillingly-realistic post-Israel Middle East.
Precipitated by a massive earthquake and an Iranian-led attack, the fall of Israel rips Daniel Blum from his suburban life and scientific career. Alone and scarred, he endures subjugation and terror in Hamas-controlled Northern Liberated Palestine.
Now, Daniel must follow George Farrah, a figure from his past, deep under the Carmel mountain and through Egyptian-controlled, quake-ravaged Tel Aviv. Haunted by tragedy, Daniel strains the bonds of duty and family as he and George uncover a secret that could alter the region’s balance of power.
Dr. Ezra Marcus of the Recanati Institute of Maritime Studies at the University of Haifa says, “The key to this narrative’s success is its verisimilitude: it is too familiar, too realistic and much too uncomfortably believable. The result is engaging and tension-building story that grips you as it disturbs you.”

It’s 11:24 at night and I’m rewriting my post after reading one by a colleague. Do great minds think alike? Yes, I believe this is true.

So, what should I write about? That’s easy. Listening, observing, and researching are three skills crucial to personal and professional success. These skills are particularly important to newbie authors as you wade through the white noise around you. If you don’t listen carefully, observe the interactions of peers, and research before you make critical decisions you may find yourself surrounded by naysayers and scam artists.
Newbies have one definite advantage over some tenured writers. Since we don’t know how “it” used to be, we don’t approach every change with fear. We’re open to what’s new because we have no past to draw from. It is an entirely different perspective. Continue reading “Listen and Learn”
Today we have a sneak peek from Mammen Mani’s fantasy novel, The Gods Enter the Infinite Unknown:
This novel narrates the incidents leading up to the universe’s defining moment, the big bang. A colony of gods lives together in harmony and peace. These gods have the power to create anything that tickles their fancy. Pain does not exist for them, and they only experience positive feelings.
Then, one of the gods, Lucifer, introduces pain and negative feelings to the community of gods. Once this floodgate is open, their world is turned upside down in an instant. The colony splits in two, as some gods choose to follow Lucifer. Sarah, the love of Emanuel’s life, unbecomingly follows Lucifer.
The Gods Enter the Infinite Unknown is available through Amazon.com and may be borrowed for free through the Prime program.
