Book Trailer Spotlight: Revelation by Morrie Richfield

Revelation: The Return of Mr. Breeze
Morrie Richfield
Inspirational Fantasy
Self

Revelation 2

About the Book:

Mr. Breeze is back; so is Michael Ryan and Rover, the magical dog.

MR. BREEZE fans can rejoice. REVELATION, Morrie Richfield’s much-anticipated sequel to his novel MR. BREEZE, has arrived. Readers new to the strange but inspiring tale of a super being and his attempt to set mankind on a straight and moral path for its very survival can immerse themselves in what critics and readers alike are calling an “inspirational fantasy” with important lessons for all of us.

In MR. BREEZE, published in 2011, Richfield introduced readers to Zackary, aka Zack, aka Mr. Breeze, an ancient being who claimed to be mankind’s creator and who still exerts a powerful force on the human race and its very existence. Zack appeared on earth as a powerful man who did miraculous deeds. He chose journalist Michael Ryan to tell his story in a book that, he hoped, would show mankind how to stop its self-destructive ways and bring paradise on earth. With man’s fate hanging in the balance, Zack disappeared, leaving humans to their fate and Michael wondering what his role really is.

REVELATION moves the action two years into the future. The situation looks bleak. Mankind has slipped back into its old, destructive ways and Michael has become a dissolute recluse. There are people who view Michael as a savior and others who see him as a threat to be eliminated.

Along this strange trip, Michael meets new friends and reunites with old companions, the most significant of which is Rover, an abused dog whom Zack endowed with superpowers. Rover becomes Zack’s messenger to Michael, as Michael tries to get Zack’s original message out to the world: If mankind doesn’t straighten out, he will destroy the human race.

Richfield plays down the description of REVELATION as an “inspirational fantasy.” He calls it a “self-help book, a textbook, a reality series on paper. It is what we see when we look in the mirror.”

If MR. BREEZE focused on Zack and his message, REVELATION focuses on Michael, following his struggle to understand his role in Zack’s master plan and to find his soul, Richfield says. “Michael’s final revelation is that we just don’t learn. Without the threat of destruction, we go back to our old ways. Our time is almost up and we need to do something. We need to show Mr. Breeze the human race deserves a chance to continue to exist.”

Book Trailer Spotlight: Dangerous Impulses by F.M. Meredith

Dangerous Impulses
F. M. Meredith
Mystery/police procedural
Dark Oak Mysteries

F. M. Meredith has done it again, produced another immensely satisfying episode in her Rocky Bluff Police Department murder mystery series. Think Ed McBain’s 87th precinct series mellowed out in a California beach town. Dangerous Impulses, ninth in the series, finds Gordon Butler orienting a new officer, the drop-dead beautiful Lizette Gibbs, and fans of the series immediately know the loveable but somewhat hapless Butler is going to fall hard. But before he can even think about making a move, they find the bodies of a woman and her teenage son… Before the RBPD can sort out the double homicide, a number of teenagers are sickened by a “recreational” drug. No one will say what the drug is or who brought it to the party. With its terse prose, ingenious plot, heart-warming moments, suspense and satisfying wrap-up, Dangerous Impulses will keep Meredith’s fans happy and win her many new ones. –J. Michael Orenduff, author of the award-winning Pot Thief murder mysteries “Good read that had me playing detective along with the characters…well fleshed out with little details that really do occur in a cop’s world. I could almost smell the chow mein, the eucalyptus and the blood.” –Linda Rooney-Card “…had me holding my breath and reading late into the night. Meredith’s characters suck you in as they move closer to each other and a very satisfying conclusion. –Michelle J.G. Perin, MS, Board Member, Public Safety Writers Association (PSWA) Volunteer Firefighter, South Lane County Fire & Rescue


Book Trailer Spotlight: Thy Kingdom Come by Lakesha Monique Ruise

Thy Kingdom Come
Lakesha Monique Ruise
Religion/Biblical criticism and interpretation/body, mind and spirit/healing/prayer
Outskirts Press

After petitioning the Father for answers to basic theological questions about the universal church, she took an eight-year journey with the Holy Spirit to provide clarity for herself about His vision.

Thy Kingdom Come provides readers with that clarity.

For anyone wondering what has happened to the Church, for anyone whose faith in God has been diminished, for anyone whose life has been destroyed by the yolks of bondage, Ruise offers new answers. She encourages her readers to follow along in the Bible itself to see how each of her lessons is validated by the Word of God.

“We perish because we don’t know how to survive,” writes Ruise. Thy Kingdom Come offers not only an apt diagnosis of the problem, but equips readers with the cure, as well. It is an excellent source book for Biblical history and spiritual revelation and it prompts valuable internalizing and soul-searching for veteran Christians as well as for new converts.
