“Hidden Tribe”

Sasquatch–they live peacefully in the forests, and woodlands. They want little, or nothing, to do with humans, and our civilization. As a whole, sasquatch are tranquil, quiet beings who live harmoniously with nature, and avoid us.

But what happens when humans refuse to return the favor?

Researcher Alexia Hollander is about to find out. When she ventures into the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, seeking evidence of the elusive species, things quickly get out of hand. Another researcher deliberately gets in Alexia’s way. Campers, and hunters bumble in, adding their own disruptive presence to the quiet work that Alexia wants to perform.

With their home territory invaded by humans, a mated pair of sasquatch keep the intruders under close surveillance. They aren’t happy about the presence of the trespassers, and want them gone. Just how far will these normally restrained beings go to protect their family, and themselves? Alexia, and her unwanted companions are about to find out!

Rikki Breitenberg is an archaeologist in charge of the first team of American documenters allowed by the Mexican government to explore newly discovered Mayan ruins in the Yucatan. However, shortly after their arrival in Mexico, things go awry. Treacherous jungle, inclement weather and dangerous wildlife are only the beginning. When Rikki and her team run afoul of members of an ancient cult devoted to the worship of a bloodthirsty god, things take a terrifying turn for the worse. During their struggle for survival, the team makes a startling discovery that may rewrite the whole of human history. Will they survive to bring their amazing find back to civilization?

Here are some things readers have said about my award-winning, critically-acclaimed, bestselling action/adventure novel “Quintana Roo, Yucatan”:

“This book was my first introduction to the action/adventure genre, but if all of them are like this it won’t be my last.”

“The author does such an amazing job of telling about the trip through the jungle, that at times you feel you are there.”

“This is a novel of pure action and adventure. There was never a dull moment, even for a minute.”

“I really loved this book. It was a page turner i couldn’t put down.”

“Once you start you won’t be able to stop reading.”

Reposting—E-book Piracy

Over the past several years piracy has moved from music to TV/film and now to e-books. E-book sales are outselling traditional print books nearly every sales quarter now. Kindle, Nook, iPad, and other e-readers are everywhere we look these days. And, as with any technology, there are people who have figured out a way to warp it for their own means.

E-book piracy has become a problem plaguing every publisher and author these days, it seems. Ways have been found to “unlock” e-books, removing copyright and other information. These illegal e-books are then traded around, or put on file sharing sites. Thousands upon thousands of these stolen books are downloaded on a regular basis.

Here are some article which delve deeper into the issue:

Piracy isn’t a new problem, but e-book piracy is a newer slant on the old practice. It’s something that every author and publisher should be aware of. These illegal practices cost everyone involved in the creative and sales side of the publishing industry hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more, per year now. What’s to be done about it, though? Please comment on this post with your own ideas and suggestion on the matter of ending e-book piracy.
