Nesselorette stared at the cover on the old tattered book and wondered what did the writing and insignia mean. The old book was found under the padding that she laid on as a baby, when an old woman placed the basket at the curb of the Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital in New York City. She knew the book contained secrets of her heritage but felt the secrets could not be unraveled until she left New York City and traveled to Natchitoches Louisiana. This quest would lead her to encounter a truth embedded in the black arts in the bayou swamps. “Definitely A Page Turner”

Available in Paperback

A lovely gift idea for Horse lovers, BFF’s & Tweens

 

 

Over Hill n’ Dale was written by Virginia Cresswell when she was just a teenager. However, she kept the book hidden until she had a daughter of her own many years later.
WhiteHallPub_Cynthia Brewster Keating n Mom
Her daughter, Cynthia Brewster-Keating of Aiken, South Carolina asked her mother why she never published the book and her mom expressed her fear that the book might not be embraced.

Virginia gave Cynthia a copy of the book but once again, put the original, hand painted manuscript back into hiding, where it stayed until many years later. After Virginia’s death in 2009, Cynthia rediscovered the original manuscript with the hand painted pages.

Whitehall Publishing is proud to publish this fun story about two tween girls who love horses, are BFF’s and share adventures together. The story is very similar to the true story of Virginia and Cynthia as both were horse crazy, both shared their love of riding with each other and both shared adventures together!

Because Cynthia participated in the editing of the book, she is listed as the co-author along with her mom. This is a project filled with love in which a daughter brought her mother’s dream into a reality 40+ years after it was originally written. We were able to enhance the original artwork within the book so it looks just like Virginia painted them yesterday!

Liam O’Malley was just looking for a warm bed, a decent living and an honest job. The California Gold Rush wasn’t paying off for this son of an Irish Immigrant, and he was tired of living in squalor. He headed north to San Francisco, hoping to find employment. Shortly after his arrival in the City by the Bay, he did find employment, but he soon questioned how honest it was. He found himself working as the assistant to a Daguerreotype photographer who specialized in portrait photography in his studio, but he also photographed ghosts and departed spirits for Spiritists in the area.

Today, these people would be called Mediums or Psychics but at that time in history, they were considered Spiritists. Labeled as harmless entertainment by some, relied upon heavily by the most influential businessmen and politicians of the time, considered dangerous to civilized society in some circles and even considered witches by others. While taking his “fake ghost pictures” and happily growing their ever expanding photographic business, Liam’s work brought him together with many Spiritists. He fell in love with the daughter of one and battled against the most dangerous anti-Spiritist campaigner of the era. While his photos started out as fakes, after an unexplained tragedy, Liam receives a huge surprise that makes him rethink everything. Were these so-called Spiritists actually con men or were they the real deal… you decide!

Steve (whose friends mostly refer to him as “Bart”) derives his idea from listening to people, walking around old neighborhoods, and a lot of reading. As for his previous life, he had an undistinguished career in civil service. His first actual job was in the U.S. Army. Someday he may write a book titled “All I Need to Know I learned in the Army.”

A call from a stranger leads me on a journey I could never have imagined. The caller said he had my uncle’s car. How could this be? My uncle died in WW II when his plane was shot down over the Bay of Biscay off the coast of England. After some questioning I realized I had the opportunity of a lifetime. An opportunity to learn a bit about the uncle I had heard about my entire life, an uncle who died 3 years before I was born, an uncle I had always wanted to know more about. I also was being given the gift of a car that had been built by this uncle’s own hands and the hands of those he had been close to in his final years.

 

The real treasure was the bond I formed with a man and the incredible story he told. The story of my uncle, the building of the car, and the people they both loved. The Special is a fact based novel; the story of family, love and trust in the face of worldwide catastrophe. In 1941 Billy Pendleton hitch-hiked to California to seek his fortune; little did he know what the future would bring. After encouragement from his new found friend and landlord he is soon building an automobile to set speed records and rubbing elbows with some of the legends of motor racing history. Into this heady world walked the woman that would change his life forever. As the car is built romance blooms and the world slips into a war that will touch every person on the planet.

Elon Musk: Renaissance Man – MASTER ENTREPRENEUR

Renaissance Man

“Optimism, pessimism, f*** that–we’re going to make it happen.” – Elon Musk

Elon Musk is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and chief product architect of Tesla Motors, cofounder of Paypal, and chairman of SolarCity. In this book, you’ll find Elon’s incredible story alongside quotes with relevant context and insight into his philosophy on life.

Elon Musk is a modern-day fusion of Henry Ford and Isaac Asimov.
One of the most successful and renowned entrepreneurs in the world, he’s an unstoppable force in multiple industries.
If Musk glances at your business, your product, or your engineers, watch out… he’s about to ruin your day.

SpaceX

“There is nothing inherently expensive about rockets. It’s just that those who have built and operated them in the past have done so with horrendously poor efficiency.” - Elon Musk

 

“We are used to things improving every year; we are used to having a better cell phone next year than this year; a better lap top. We are even used to some basic things, like we expect more from your car in next year’s model than last year’s model. But this is not the case in space; reliability and cost – those are the fundamental parameters of transportation – have not improved… We got to the moon, but have never done anything better since. I’m disappointed that we have not made more progress since Apollo. I don’t even see a plan that says we’re going to do better than Apollo to exceed that goal.” – Elon Musk

 

“If we can be one of the companies that makes it possible for humans to become a multi-planetary species, that would be the Holy Grail. It sounds a bit crazy but it’s going to happen, and only if people build the means to do so. We’re making progress toward a greater philosophical goal while building a sound business.” – Elon Musk

 

 

Tesla Motors

“The reason for me to do it is not because I saw a huge market opportunity. It was clear that we were not going to see electric cars from major car manufacturers. The industry was operating under two false premises. One, that you could not create a compelling electric car. And two, that no one would buy it. Now that we’ve become profitable, we expect that other manufacturers will get into the electric car market… [but] the response thus far has been slower than I’d like.” – Elon Musk

 

“I don’t like patents, personally. When I was first starting out developing technology, I got lots of patents, and thought this was a good thing, and then I sort of discovered that a patent was really like buying a lottery ticket to a lawsuit. I was like, I’d rather not buy those tickets. You look at sort of the battle between Apple & Samsung, who is really winning there? The lawyers are winning certainly, but neither of those two companies. And, in the case of Tesla, I thought, ‘Well, would Tesla ever sue some other car company if they were using our patents, to try to make them stop making electric cars?’ We would never do such a thing, so why pretend that we would.” – Elon Musk

 

 

Meet Science Fiction & YA Fantasy Author: Aya Knight

Aya Knight

Interview with:
Young Adult, Science Fiction & Fantasy Author

Aya Knight

 

 

*** Meet Aya Knight ***

 

Aya Knight was born in South Florida, where she spent the majority of her childhood. At a young age she developed a strong passion for fantasy and a love of writing.Through movies, books and video/computer games she would escape into an alternate reality filled with adventure, magic and epic quests. As Aya entered adulthood, she expressed her enjoyment of writing through becoming a freelance journalist. She wrote about a broad variety of topics that gave her a brighter insight of the world.

Eventually a story began to develop within her mind involving characters she immediately grew attached to. Aya knew that she needed to compile her thoughts onto paper. She grew so intrigued with the evolving storyline that she placed all hopes within the hands of her imagination, leaving journalism behind. Aya now works as a full-time novelist, where she continues to pursue her passion. In addition, Aya is also CEO of Silver Knight Publishing. A traditional publisher of quality books. Aya is a bestselling, award-winning author.

 

 

*** Interview ***

 

Tell us about your book? What inspired you to write it?

Aya Knight - The Chronicles of Kale - Dragons AwakeningThe Chronicles of Kale: A Dragon’s Awakening is the first in a series of three. It’s the story of a young dragon, who despises human-kind. Through a twist of events he finds himself turned into one of us, and then thrown into our world—completely out of his element. It’s his story as he tries to return to the life he once knew, while embarking upon a whirlwind adventure along the way.

I’ve always enjoyed the fantasy genre. I think it just offers such a great escape from reality, into worlds where fantastic things are possible. I was inspired to write a long time ago, during my days hearing my father tell bedtime stories and creating wild Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. In my 20’s, the idea behind ‘Kale’ pressed on my mind, and a world began to develop. I knew that I had to get these thoughts onto paper—and thus, The Chronicles of Kale was ‘born’.

 

Have you always enjoyed writing?

Absolutely. I think it’s deeply ingrained as a part of me. There’s just something about being able to create vast worlds, through the power of words. You become the puppet-master in your own universe—where the possibilities are boundless. I’ve scribbled stories on paper since I was much younger.

 

How did writing this book help you?

A lot happened during progress on the first novel. There were highs, and deep lows. I think that funneling emotion into the manuscript not only helped me cope with things happening, but also brought the characters to life—their trials, emotions, and hardships became real, in a sense. Though the story is fiction, there are aspects that were taken from my life, on an emotional level, and funneled into the book. For example, Illadar coping with the loss of a loved one was channeled from my own loss of a relative. It was a way that I could release inner feelings that I otherwise wouldn’t speak of.

 

What’s next? Is there something you’re working on now?

Most definitely! I’m not sure if I’ll ever leave writing behind. Now that The Chronicles of Kale trilogy has come to a close, I am working on a couple of other projects. A young-adult apocalyptic novel is in the works, as well as (without revealing too much) a stand-alone novel that plays upon Kale’s world.

 

What do you hope readers will “take away” from reading your book?

I hope they will finish having felt that they’ve just taken a vacation from reality; that they’ve joined the characters on the adventure of a lifetime. I want it to be a fun and enjoyable read that offers a break from daily stresses. My hopes are that the ‘world’ doesn’t just appear on paper to them, but in their minds, as they are immersed within an alternate reality.

 

What advice would you give to other Indie Writers or those who dream of writing a book?

I would definitely say to push yourself. If you have a passion to write, you absolutely must give it your all. Make it a point to write a little every day—even if it’s only a sentence or two. It keeps you moving forward and engaged in the work. Even on days when it might seem difficult to bring yourself to sit and scribble a few lines, I feel it’s important to keep working towards the end. If you need inspiration, read other books. It’s a great way to see how others interpret things, and can help improve literary abilities.

* INTERVIEW: *

 

Oliver Phipps - Where the Strangers LiveIs this your first book?
Actually, this is my eighth fiction book. I’ve also written a number of nonfiction books, but these have been published under a pen name that I don’t associate with my fiction works.

 

Tell us about your book? What inspired you to write it?
My newest book, Where the Strangers Live, is a Science Fiction story complete with aliens and an alien world, mixed in with ancient mythological beasts and creatures of this planet. To make things even more interesting the story unfolds over four miles below the Indian Ocean. The inspiration for Where the Strangers Live was actually a dream of mine. The plot occurred almost entirely in this dream and when I woke up I immediately jotted notes down for later. It’s not often that great story ideas come so easily. I fortunately recognized this one and followed up on it.

 

Is this book part of a series? Do you have related books? (explain)
This is a stand alone story. However, there may be a sequel at some point in the future. As I completed Where the Strangers Live I realized there would certainly be sufficient material for a great follow up story. I’ve also had a number of requests from fans that I do a sequel, so I’ve slowly moved closer to putting one in the line up.

 

Have you always enjoyed writing?
I have always enjoyed writing. My mother still has a story I wrote when I was around ten years old. I vaguely remember it, but she’s often mentioned how great it is. I suspect that’s more the mother in her talking than the story being good. But it is at least an indication of how long I’ve enjoyed writing.

 

What do you want our audience to know about you?
As a writer, I will always stay true to the story. A good writer must do this I feel and though it’s not always the easy thing to do, it’s what the reader deserves. I’ve read books that may have started out as a great idea but at some point the writer veered from what must happen and derailed the story. I don’t expect the reader to always be happy with everything that happens in my books. If a beloved character must die, he or she will die in my stories. It’s not a pleasant thing for me either, but the story must stay true till the end and I will always remain on this course.

 

What’s next? Is there something you’re working on now?
I generally work on no less than two projects at a time. I have a psychological thriller that should be released by mid year. I also hope to publish the first book of an action/adventure trilogy before year end. Somewhere in between these two projects I hope to publish another short novella.

 

What advice would you give to other Indie Writers or those who dream of writing a book?
My advice would be to focus on helping others with your talent. Whether it’s a self help book or to entertain, if you truly write to better this world in some small way then you’ll be successful in the end.
