Kyle Keyes Releases Book Two in the Quantum Roots Satire Series
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2017

The metamorphous holds an eerie transformation, cloaked with rolling sagebrush and horse whinnies from yesteryear, which causes DPA Director, Alexis Grumman to rethink the validity of worm holes. 'Creation is a worm hole,' replies Dr. Norman Daly, 'Atoms require hadrons to form a nucleus, and each hadron comes through it's own worm hole. Two quarks form the bi-dimensional plane needed to support the hole. The remaining quark squeezes through this hole, after which the first two quarks follow to shape the hadron to a given genetic, configuration. The hole then closes to divide time from timeless.' The gunfighter is wanted for multiple killings, a consequence that keeps the slender computer wizard on the run from authorities - and domineering wife, Ivy Chapman. As in Quantum Roots, aka The Vigilante Sightings, Quantum Roots II is based on mounting evidence that people form from recycled energy. Quantum Roots II: Worm Holes is available for purchase in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: Quantum Roots II: Worm Holes By Kyle Keyes Published: February 2017 ISBN: 978-0986437496 Pages: 296 Genre: Fiction, Satire About the Author: Born To Write: Older Americans often come from whistle stop towns painted by Norman Rockwell. Kyle Keyes grew up in Clayton, a South Jersey borough first founded as Fislerville. Clayton had a small urban district with street lights, but no indoor plumbing. Farmland and outhouses were a sign of the times. Clayton was so small, that Keye's aunt doubled as his Sixth Grade school teacher, who once said that Kyle lived with his nose between the bookends. She must have known something. Keyes went to Temple Tech for concrete and steel design in 1956 and 1957. He never became an engineer, but still has a Red, tinker toy motor and his World War II, Erector Set. The early Sixties found Kyle in the U.S. Army where his top sergeant would daily bark, 'You just say morning, trooper. I'll decide if it's good or not!' Keyes wholesaled bakery products to food chains for thirty years, and wrote odd items for local newspapers. He is widowed and currently lives in Florida. He has two children, Kathleen and Daniel. Grand children are now grown and too old for tales about railroads and yesterday's America. This leaves Keyes no option but to write books.

Ronald M. James Releases First Book in Sammy Shovel Detective Mystery Series
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2017

When Sammy Shovel sinks his teeth into a case - he gets to the bottom of it - no matter how many bullets are flying at him. Private Investigator, Sammy Shovel, is short, slightly overweight, balding, and he dresses like San Francisco's most squalid street people. When a supposed heist falls into his lap, Sammy jumps at the chance to make a few bucks, from an unknown victim, by stopping what appears to be a simple robbery. However, the case turns out to be different than anything he's taken on since the death of his partner. Sammy finds himself speeding through streets of San Francisco to head off another senseless murder. The events that follow are beyond his comprehension, and will change his perception of crime forever. The victim may not be as evil as it seems, but rather - a casualty of circumstances. 'An Adventurous Night' is available for purchase in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: An Adventurous Night A Sammy Shovel Novel, The Beginning. By Ronald M. James Published: March 2017 ISBN: 978-0998175621 ASIN: B06XDGRQ62 Pages: 120 Genre: Mystery, Detective About the Author: Ronald M. James was born during the great depression, and as a toddler watched WPA men build a new street, from his home's big front window. His playmates were a Red rider wagon, a small black satchel and rocks. By using his imagination he had conversations with mythical street workers that bloomed into fashioned fantasies by age four. He used cardboard boxes to create fun spaces for his neighborhood playmates to enjoy and he kept telling stories all through high school. In college he abandoned writing and studied architecture. James had a successful architectural career and retiRed, however he wanted to keep his creative juices fluent, so he returned to his childhood story telling days and joined a writers group. Like architecture, each day he couldn't wait to create, finish, and start new stories - like this one, 'An Adventurous Night.'
