Synopsis

Who did it?

Someone bombed New York. In a near miss on Washington a second city has been destroyed. Is it militant Muslims? White Separatists? Russia? China? North Korea? Or the worst serial killer of all time—not taking one life or even twenty, but four million?


No One Knows.

Lost religious texts appear. Entire faiths are rocked to their foundations. Well-known, highly-respected clerics thought to have been killed by the New York and Virginia City bombs are being kidnapped. . .

For two brothers Franklin and Everon, the loss, the motivation, is very personal.

While Everon’s team struggles to restore a power system devastated by the bombs’ EMP, Franklin works to restore the personal power of individuals in his emotionally distraught congregation, and those behind the bombs begin to reveal themselves. As clues come fast and furious, the brothers’ own lives become imperiled when the bombers’ sights are set on them.

Synopsis

“How often do you find yourself unhappily committed to a book?” asked Pollens. “I believe that “HAUNTED” would not fall into this category, but I want readers to have a special option… the “IN THE BEGINNING” version… FREE on Sunday, Oct. 23 and again on Oct 24.”

Here’s a bit of what the story is about…

In spite of years of successful academic achievement, Dr. Harold Treadwell, a PHD psychologist at Philadelphia’s Jess Hawkins University (JHU), has extremely low self-esteem. Memories of a year’s earlier incident plague him and he loses himself in the complexities of a sleep-study research project.

Harold’s proposed research focuses on sufferers of undiagnosed and untreated mysterious pain… mental and physical difficulties that appear without warning and ruin lives. Harold spends five-years designing a sleep-stasis chamber… a necessary apparatus in the proposed study. Finally, he submits a grant application to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Its approval is in doubt until an unexpected source of support with NIH influence surfaces.

“That much is all in the “IN THE BEGINNING” intro,” explained Pollens, “and I believe is enough to excite readers who will want to get the full tale.” The intro runs more than 35 pages and more than 7000 words. The Kindle eBook version is normally available for $2.99 at Amazon.com but will be free during Oct. 23 and 24. Get it by entering “Allen Pollens, ‘IN THE BEGINNING’ in the Amazon search window or use this link: http://tinyurl.com/hdb2ak2

Synopsis

Do you have a story in you?
 
Do you know how to write it or how to tell it?
 
Creating Stories has the answers. Hank Quense, the author of more than twenty books, tells you how to do it. He believes that stories come from the melding of three elements: getting ideas, story design and story-telling. Ideas have to come from the author. Creating Stories covers the last two. 
The book concentrates on developing characters including such rarely discussed requirements such as a dominant reader emotion and the character's biography.
Plots are also covered in depth and a number of graphics are included to illustrate complex points. Another topic discusses subplots and how to utilize them and how to nest them within the main plot.
A separate chapter discusses the relationship between the plot and the emotional arcs.
Other topics covered are: character arcs, scene design, point-of-view, writing voice.
