George Kronenfeldt is an unemployed engineer with one shot to keep his daughters belief in Santa intact. When Megan tells him the only way she will believe in Santa is if she can videotape him and then tells her fourth grade class she will prove the existence of Santa Claus by posting her video to YouTube, George realizes he must become the Real Santa. He devises a plan to land nine reindeer on his roof and go down his chimney, hiring a broken down movie director who eventually has him funding a full scale production that bankrupts him and threatens his marriage. When George goes to find the “Real Santa” to help him, the line between what is real and magic is crossed. Real Santa is a funny heartwarming story of parenthood gone wrong and illuminates what lengths parents will go to keep their children happy.

Meet Author: Max W. Miller

I am not a fan of horror, decapitations, or disembowelment. Senseless blood, blood, blood does not pump-up the volume for me. If somebody’s bleeding, it shouldn’t have happened because of an accidental walk into Jason or Chucky’s backyard. I like meaningful plots, something my husband and I can try to unravel. For me, there needs to be a reason why little Judy got her throat torn out–for heaven sake.

Hi there, I’m Max. Welcome to my world of proses. I couldn’t be more honored that you are taking the time to get to know me. How awesome is that? A few things about me … I’m a Southern wife and mom with hopefully good manners and an occasional ability to be charming. I am enthralled by dreams and visions and how they come to inform, guide, and shape our decision making process. Please understand that no life should be controlled solely by dreams. Just know that the supernatural world co-exists with the natural.

I like to write about happenings that earthlings cannot explain away–events challenging traditional reasoning. These events bring to the forefront of our consciousness an understanding that the supernatural is well … very natural in some realms. I like to recall true events and mix-in my untamed imagination. I hope you enjoy my books as I have enjoyed dreaming them up. And I do mean dream!      See ya! Max

Blood Melt – Young Adult * Sci-Fi * Fantasy Fiction * Adventure

Blood Melt (Seth Cometh…) by Max W. Miller

All aliens visiting Earth are not little green things with exaggerated, oval shaped eyes. That’s what Avani Darrisaw found out when she gazed into the honey-brown irises of Seth, a prince from Amarka.

Sixteen year old Avani always knew there was more to the story about this secret war her father fought in—a war never broadcasted on the evening news. But when Counselor Vivian Brashear came from Savannah, Georgia, to her home in Winston Salem, her frustrations mounted even higher. The woman tells Avani that an alien Star Warrior has chosen her to help him come to earth, and that he must have talks with her. Avani tries to shrug-off the woman’s comments as the ranting of a lunatic, but still, her heart could not deny the gorgeous stranger now showing up in her dreams.

Pressured on every side, Avani feels she has no choice but to have these talks with Seth. Soon, their meetings throws the feisty teen into a tail spin for more reasons than one. Seth is trapped in a sphere and needs Avani to save him. She’d have to agree to undergo a ceremony, the Blood Melt, where Seth requires a deadly evacuation of her blood. As if the Blood Melt Ceremony wasn’t scary enough, if she consents to save him, a Walfarian Spiker, sworn enemy of the Amarkarues, would track and try to assassinate her. Find out whether Avani will risk her life to save Seth, and in return, how can Seth save her when he is imprisoned inside a disintegrating sphere?

You really want to read this book—fast pace, filled with intrigue, wit, and unexpected twists and turns.
