A New Approach to ARES

Dan Fisher

Your humble webmaster and vice president Dan has had an article published in QST, which is the journal of the ARRL, the National Association for Amateur Radio. ARES® stands for Amateur Radio Emergency Services, and is a registered trademark of the ARRL.

Yeshuaism: A Novel

Peter Messmore

Fifteen priceless papyrus scrolls and vellum codices, known as the NH-II find, are discovered near Egypt’s Nile River. Twenty biblical scholars and scientists gather on a private Mediterranean Island to study and authenticate them. Early analysis suggests that they are early, first century documents. Some scholars and scientists maintain that they were written by scribes or followers of Jesus who lived when he did and may have known him―they may have even heard him teach.

The owner of the documents wonders if the analyses will redefine Christianity, rename it after its true founder. With simultaneous hope and dread they prepare for world-wide publication of the NH-II documents. The billionaire owner and many of the scholars studying them propose that a new religion, Yeshuaism, be established, renamed after Jesus’ authentic Aramaic name and history.

Other deadly forces oppose even the thought of such action. Some of the world’s established Christian religions work to destroy the documents and the scholars working on them. (5/31)

The Hawthorn House

James R. Nelson

James R. Nelson’s 13th mystery novel, The Hawthorn House, has recently been published in paperback, eBook, and audio formats.

In this latest book, Sarah Morrison decides to travel to Michigan’s sparsely populated Upper Peninsula to see if she can find her long lost college friend, Eleanor Kincaid. Sarah’s not prepared for her less than friendly reception when she encounters Eleanor’s family living in the dark, imposing Hawthorn House.

When rumors about the Hawthorn House start to surface, It soon becomes apparent Sarah has taken on a task that is more than she bargained for…and downright dangerous, too!

Tom Trombley surprises his wife when he shows her his new purchase–a small cottage deep in the woods. She doesn’t share his joy and questions his motivation. Will this be a safe environment for their young daughter? Then she sees the roof of the Hawthorn House looming in the distance.

And what about the old man who roams the forest at night? He knows there are unanswered questions that need to be put to rest.

In James R. Nelson’s 13th mystery, The Hawthorn House, multiple plot lines are once again tightly woven together to create a spine-tingling story that will be impossible to put down.

Are You Sure I Said I Thought This Was a Good Idea?

Rose Padrick

This book is about the mostly hilarious, often scary, once-in-a-while dangerous, adventures and shenanigans of a couple of Florida flatlanders dealing with simultaneous midlife crises, menopause and visiting grand-toddlers. Did I mention we lived on a mountain with real cliffs?

Sometimes Ya just gotta follow your dream…Many times I truly wondered if we had lost our mutual minds, but when our last kid left home and took the dog, we sold all we could, packed a truck with the rest, and headed for the mountains.

Share our moments of danger, more moments of abject fear, but many moments of laughter and wonder at the glory called The Great Smoky Mountains! All the above, and more, comprise our adventures on Misty Mountain, North Carolina!
