Book Blitz: Land of The Living by James Pinard






James Pinard is a writer of books, screenplays, graphic novels and poetry. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, he currently resides in Orlando, FL where he works as a Computer Programmer for an insurance company. He has two beautiful, awesome children Michael and Ariel who inspired characters in his latest creation, “LAND OF THE LIVING.” 


His past works include the short story “CREED” which was published in the PULP EMPIRE Collection Vol 1 and “DEARBORNE” in PULP EMPIRE Vol 2 by METAHUMAN PRESS available on Amazon. He is also a Writer and Creator of the Comic series “LUCID WORLD” Issues 1 and 2 published by TRAGIC ENTERTAINMENT.

“LAND OF THE LIVING” began as a labor of love on a subject matter that is close to his heart. One of his favorite subjects is time travel and his favorite decade is the eighties. After having lost both his parents and his sister to cancer, he decided to come up with a story about traveling to the 1980’s to see them again. The story just grew from there and the rest as we say is history.    


Follow James on his pages:









WHEN JAMES CREED WAKES UP IN HIS PARENTS’ HOUSE IN THE YEAR 1985, HE’S GREETED BY FAMILIAR PEOPLE AND SETTINGS.
THE PROBLEM IS HE REMEMBERS BEING A 50 YEAR OLD MAN IN THE YEAR 2015.

Memory told him both of his parents and the woman he loved were gone, but he slowly realizes that he’s traveled back in time to an alternate version of the eighties. President Kennedy is still alive, and the head of a secret time travel program, and perhaps the strangest thing of all – his loved ones are still alive.
He faces a challenge for which he’s not prepared, but he doesn’t have to fight his battle alone. To his amazement, his son, Michael, travels back from the year 2035 to help him discover the true reason he was sent back.
But another mysterious time traveler hunts him from the shadows, and James’ journey becomes a race to save his future existence in the Land Of The Living…









Let's get a fun look at this book!

Unique aspects and overall coolness of “Land of the Living”

The 1980’s- Set in 1985 it portrays how different things were back then – technology – style – the music  and just the overall coolness of the decade. Also a few famous people from that time period make appearances.

JFK – Anytime the assassination of President Kennedy is explored in a story it’s interesting but believe it or not LOTL adds some new twists – the biggest of which is that he is still alive in 1985 and the main character gets to meet him.

Time Travel – Time travel is always cool but in LOTL time travel is not of the body but of the mind. Time travelers can travel back using their mind and take over their own body or the body of someone else who has recently died in the past. Also, the main character is able to bounce back between the past and future. This is unique and really cool.

Cheating death  - The main character gets to go back and see his parents, his sister and the girl he loved all of whom are dead in his version of the future. Not only is that a mind bender but it also is an emotional rollercoaster.

The Villains – The bad guys are able to travel through time at will and take over the body of another person even while they are still alive and make them bend to their will. Also, there is a wild card called the Red Headed Woman who is a mysterious ghost-like figure who appears throughout the story. Is she a villain or an ally? You be the judge.

Book Blitz: Finding You Series by Candy O'Donnell




Candy O’Donnell lives in California.
At the age of twelve, she wrote her first mini book, filled mostly with what took place with her mother and her long tedious bout with leukemia. It was a short story told as extra credit when she suffered a sprained ankle and had to be out of school for over two months. School officials refused to believe a word of what she had written until her grandmother, her guardian back then, entered the school with the truth. Everything she had written down was exactly what took place. Unfortunately, her mother succumbed to the disease.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in history and culture. After living with her aunt and uncle for over five years, she wished to explore her uncle’s native heritage, and did so with vigor. She also has grad units in criminal justice.

 How does one discover happiness?

After long bouts of unhappiness, I discovered something buried within me. What I kept buried deep inside me was joy and happiness. At times I did not deeply love myself and others, I did not love with compassion, or see myself as one with others. Unhappiness stems from our pain and suffering, but we can let go of unhappiness. This journey is not easy and after digging through the pain and fear, I found happiness.

Day 12: PHOBIC By Author Cortney Pearson



 Fifteen-year-old Piper Crenshaw knows her house is strange. As if never needing repairs since 1875, or lights flickering in response to things she says, aren’t creepy enough, it’s also the place where her mother committed murder.

To prove she’s not afraid of where she lives, Piper opens a forbidden door and soon after begins to witness a string of flashbacks—including a love affair between two young servants. Not only did these servants used to live in a set of rooms just down the hall from her bedroom, but they happen to be hiding a deadly secret.

This secret is pulling Piper deeper into not only their story, but also her house. To sever her link to it, she must unravel the clues in the flashbacks and uncover the truth about her mother’s crime before becoming a part of her house for good.

Open the door to this striking, unstoppable mystery, but remember: sometimes a house…isn’t just a house.
