The Seventh Day of Light:
Part I: Shadows
Historical Fiction Thriller
By Riccardo Bertora
Review from Amazon Top 500 Reviewer and Member of Vine Voice
“Riccardo Bertora’s writing makes completely original use of some adjectives, brings them alive in some ways, but otherwise reminds me quite a bit of 1960s-era Isaac Asimov. Speaking of which: the Cold War era historic detail is exquisite. Bertora is a wonderful storyteller.”
Limited Time Offer – Buy this book for less than $1
To celebrate the launch of The Seventh Day of Light’s sequel on Amazon, this book has been reduced to under $1 for a limited time only – to the end of October!
The craving for crossing the threshold of new frontiers has carved the tissue of history with the chisel of one of the noblest and most compelling ambitions of mankind – to reach for the stars.
The quest to conquer space began in earnest in the fifth decade of the twentieth century, which saw America and Russia engaged in a daring and frantic space race.
The Russians took two bold steps, which would precede the American Lunar landing: in October 1957 Sputnik One, the first man-made object to escape Earth’s gravitational field, was launched into space and in April 1961, Yuri Gagarin successfully orbited the planet.
According to rumours circulating at the time in Western countries, covert attempts to put a manned satellite into orbit may have occurred in Russia preceding the Soviet success of 1961.
Most momentous events are recorded and duly committed to history. But history itself can be unstable; its truth can be lost in the fog of time, manipulated or worse yet: purposefully hidden.
Was the story of Sergei Federev, a Russian ace test pilot – exclusively chosen for a top secret project to be the first human in space, lost in the fog of time, manipulated or hidden?
Or does the answer lie in the possibility of something else beyond anyone’s imagination.
This recently published debut novel is already receiving good reviews with an Amazon Top 500 Reviewer awarding it 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com. Another reviewer called it one of the best books they’ve read all year. See what the fuss is about.
The Seventh Day of Light contains an extremely fascinating plot and storyline.
Genre: Historical Fiction Thriller
Also contains some sci-fi, interesting historical facts relating to the Cold War Space Race, World War II, fascinating philosophical thoughts, suspense, romance and much more!
Owner of the MAD HATTER
and Author of:
Bobbie you have such an amazing personal story, in addition to your two new books, that I know will inspire our audience. Can you share with us why the “Mad Hatter” Shop came to life?
After working for 30+ years in consulting engineering firms, as an Electrical Designer, I was laid off and there weren’t any jobs in my area. I thought about the things I enjoy, which are hats and tea, and decided to open Mad Hatter with those two things, and have expanded it with gifts and specialty food items.
After such a long career in an entirely different field, did you feel as if you discovered a new passion or unleashed an ever-present one?
It was definitely a new passion! While I loved hats and teas for many years, it never occurred to me that I may one day be selling them. The writing for Mad Hatter Tea Society (a short story) was fun, then I decided I wanted to tell Tucker’s story.
Your Mad Hatter Shop is in downtown Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. What can visitors to your shop expect to discover?
Mad Hatter is a small quaint shop (only 225 square feet), it is whimsical and fun. Visitors will discover teapots, teacups, teas, tea accessories, specialty food products made in North Carolina, hand lotions, sprays, and soaps made locally. Hats are just the beginning at Mad Hatter.
You are a member of the Red Hat Society. Whenever I see a Red Hat Society group of women, I always think “one of these days I am joining for sure!” For those who aren’t familiar with the RHS can you tell us a bit about RHS?
The Red Hat Society is a group of ladies 50+ who get together to have fun. Each group decides what they enjoy doing…..our group goes to cooking classes, plays, to afternoon teas, and lunch, and so much more. Ladies wear purple clothes and red hats, so we are easily recognized anywhere we go.
It seems as if once you were settled in to this “new calling” another passion was unleashed. You are now the author of 2 books: Mad Hatter Tea Society and Tucker’s Story. Before we talk about these 2 sweet books, can you share with us how writing, plays a role in what you do now?
Actually writing is just something fun to do, all of us have ideas that we think would make an interesting book, so I decided to start working on those ideas now that I have a little more time than I use to. Hopefully people will enjoy the books.
Tell us what inspired you to write Mad Hatter Tea Society and can you share with us what to expect in this book?
I love going to afternoon teas and wearing hats, so this one is about ladies that wonder into a hat shop, purchase some hats and decide on a whim to go to Afternoon Tea. Both of these things are new experiences for them, and who better to experience new things with than a friend? It is a short story, so it doesn’t take very long to read.
Tucker is a dog I adopted a couple of years ago. He was dropped off in a rural area by his previous owners. I will never know why they did this, but they must have cared a lot about him up to this point, as he was very well trained. He is an amazing dog, and a lot of good things have happened to him since then, as told in the story.
So what’s next for you? Is there another book in the works?
Yes, there is another book…..about a previous dog before Tucker. This one is about Truman, a Belgian Malinois that I adopted from the shelter when she was five weeks old. That’s right, Truman was a girl. Someone is working on the illustrations for this book, and once they are complete, it will be published.

Can Grant, the firm’s investigator, help her find out who is behind it before the past begins to swallow her future?

Mystery writer Roger McDermitt is in a rut until a local serial killer murders six men in six months. The police are convinced the serial killer is a woman, which fascinates Roger. He nicknames her “Tease”, and is determined to make her the central character in his next novel.
When Roger meets the mysterious Tess Galloway at his local bar, he believes he has finally met a woman he can fall in love with. He’s shocked at how perfect they are for each other. But he knows no one is ever what they seem, including himself.
Then the terrible dreams begin. Roger has always had the gift of channeling the dreams of people he was closest to, but he has never had violent and disturbing dreams like these before. They are from the viewpoint of Tease, and they terrify Roger with their brutality and rage. He can’t decide if he’s channeling the dreams of Tess or if he’s going crazy. But he must know.
This is the beginning to a novel about love, obsession and madness. Tease is part thriller, part love story, and part supernatural fiction. It will intrigue and haunt you from the first page to the last.
A Message from Glenn Fain:
Although “Tease” is the first novel I’m publishing, it’s actually the second novel I’ve written. I’ve written three other novels, all eventually to be published. I’m eager to have more people read my books. Books should be read, ya know?, rather than kept in the desk as some forbidden diary, a secret you really don’t want to share.
