Author Introduction – Murray McDonald

IMG_3444Meet Author, Murray McDonald.

I met Murray in collaboration with Steven Konkoly’s Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds Series.

His contribution, titled Rockland, is phenomenal. In my opinion, it should be made into a movie. For a novella, it’s as action packed as any James Bond movie only better. Here’s the short but intriguing description:

After years of preparation and trillions of dollars of investment. Red Dragon is only hours from launch.

Every conceivable risk is being monitored and managed to ensure the operation remains a secret and catches the United States, crucially for its success, by surprise.

As the clock ticks towards zero hour, Red Dragon hangs in the balance as one small town holds the key to unravelling the event before it even starts.

Rockland!

Which isn’t surprising due to the fact that Murray McDonald is also a thriller writer of eight other novels. Most recently published is The God Complex.

THE GOD COMPLEX
When Cash Harris visits his father for the first time after a fifteen year estrangement, things don’t go anywhere near as planned. By the end of the night, he finds himself embroiled in a plot to destabilise the government, his father has been assassinated and he discovers a shocking truth that would have fundamentally altered his life fifteen years earlier.However, all of this pales into insignificance when, along with his best friend and ex-fiancee, he fights for his innocence and the chance to save a world they didn’t even know needed saving. They uncover the truth that has been alluding mankind from its very inception. Life, the universe…everything…nothing is as it really seems.
If you’re considering a new author to try, give Rockland a try. It’s a quick thrilling read and trust me, after you do, you’ll want to add Murray McDonald to your favorite author’s list and read the rest of his work.

 

 

 

Author Introduction ~ The Stone Collector by Eitan Olevsky

Meet my new friend Author, Eitan Olevsky. He was born in 1981 in Lima, Peru. His knack for story-telling began at the early age of four, pestering his parents with sleepless nights of fairy tale readings. At five, he was reading Brothers Grimm and La Fontaine, fables imbued in wisdom and magic that would come to show his early fascination for the fantasy genre.

His first attempt at writing a novel was at the age of eight with The Legend of the Magic Wand, which he managed to finish three years later.

In 2002, Eitan won first prize at UPC’s “Juegos Florales”, a literary contest from the university where he was studying, with a satire that mocked university life itself.

Later, in 2005, he published the satirical novel, El Gran Maestro. Olevsky’s Gran Maestro shows a crazy collection of individuals, portrayed with dark humor galore, their lifestyles in Peru during the estranged decade of the 80s and 90s.

His book, The Stone Collector, has an intriguing description.

Some things are not meant to be stolen. That is what Hexus Thorne, vicious hitman for the mafia realizes when he unsuspectingly takes possession of a powerful Stone with legendary powers. And yet- this is not the only stone hiding among the ancient ruins of the Island Meylach… the question is, who is The Stone Collector?

I’ve purchased The Stone Collector, and added it to my To Be Read Pile. I plan to review it as soon as I’ve finished and I’ll post an update here.
