John Murzycki Launches First Science Fiction Novel
by BWW News Desk - Mar 20, 2017

After a twenty-five-year career in high technology marketing and sales, John Murzycki decided to take on the job he always wanted. He published his first major novel, a science Fiction and fantasy thriller about a computer virus that becomes both mortal and deadlier than the world ever expected. His novel, titled Elthea's Realm, has enough technology references garnered from his years in the industry. Bots, antivirus programs, networks are all elements he uses to bring the reader into a magical world with a race of people called the Astari, and places such as islands that are supported high above the ocean by a single column. 'I always wanted to write Fiction, but earning a living took priority,' said Murzycki. 'Over time I finished a half-dozen manuscripts, but I knew they weren't good enough to see the light of day. I would think about plot ideas while I worked as a manager at various technology companies and how technology could be used for good as well as for harm. That idea persisted and made its way into my novel.' The nemesis of the storyline is an evil race called the Bots, who gained physical form after beginning their existence as a destructive computer virus. They pursue five friends who, united by a college course called The Utopia Project, had drifted apart since graduation years earlier. These friends are brought to a land called Elthea's Realm They are befriended by the Astari, a race who had their beginnings as antivirus programs on Earth. 'I enjoy writing about places that have just a bit of magic in them so that you know they are different, but not so unbelievable,' explained Murzycki. 'In many ways, Elthea's Realm could be Earth. The underlying intent of my story is to portray how five ordinary people, just like you or me, react when not only they are threatened, but the Earth itself is endangered. What are they feeling and thinking? But mostly, how do they respond.' He adds, 'My characters are unlikely heroes who struggle with frailties and imperfections as they face dangers they would never have thought possible. Only then do we find out what we are made of. I like to explain that the book is a story about what makes us human.' Murzycki is currently working on the next book in the series. Elthea's Realm is available in both paperback and eBook.

New Book from 'Your Invincible Power' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 15, 2017

Book release date - April 2017. This new book from Your Invincible Power isn't just a Fictional story about a valiant family and their life journey, in fact, its thought provoking insight draws in the reader along with the characters in the book. Author Pamela Hamilton manages to teach the value of the soul through her willingness to go against conventional thinking and the harsh illusion of many of our core beliefs. She was told that, Love, Life and Beyond, couldn't be done, that spiritual mentors talking to the reader is not acceptable or creditable in Fiction. However, these delightful mentors with powerful messages prove different. Amid issues of racism, drugs and teen problems, Love, Life and Beyond shows the reader another way of looking at life's jarring troubles through the story of Anne, a racist from the South, who dies from a brain aneurysm. After some time to reflect in the spiritual realm, Anne's soul is ready for another trial on Earth - this time in the body of Nova: a black girl. By means of some ethereal circumstances Nova finds herself hurled into the hostility of her former family's hate; having no clue of her previous non-physical proclamation to transform their beliefs. If you are tired of the usual conventional story-lines and you crave something more out of this world and yet something that works for you this Fictional story peppered with some non-Fictional insights has arrived. Love, Life and Beyond is set for release in April 2017 published with FriesenPress and is the first Fictional book from Your Invincible Power. Pamela invites you to join her and her son W.T on this journey of self empowerment and abundance at www.yourinvinciblepower.com (more...)
