    In an age of measuring and tracking the self through gadgets, the author of this book wondered how he could take such dedication to analytics to create something that is as much precise science as it is creative expression. The result? A grand experiment in the quantified self, more than four years in the making, HOW I AM DIFFERENT tests the boundaries of how we define the self and how the self changes over time. For two years, the author wrote a new creative piece every day. The second year’s pieces were a response to the prior year for each day of the year. This book shows this one-to-one correlation for each day of Year One and Year Two in spreads. The book is mostly poetry, but it also contains some fiction and creative nonfiction. Since every piece is self-contained, it doesn’t matter where you start. You could easily read all 776 pages in one sitting or save it for later. It’s a page-turner like no other. It contains extensive indexing to help you decide what to read.

    The Blue Garou

    September 21st, 2016

    the-blue-garouDetective ‘Cadillac’ Holland joined the Louisiana State Patrol to find the solution to his father’s disappearance in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.  Four years have passed and he hasn’t solved that case.  Now he’s asked to prove that a pit bull is the murder weapon and not the murderer of New Orleans’ most notorious criminal. The dog’s tracks lead to the murder victim’s son, fiancé, and bodyguard.  It also crosses paths with the FBI’s investigation into a rap music label, the ATF’s search for a storage locker of missing firearms, a dog-fighting ring, and blackmail involving a famous Hollywood actress. NOPD’s Chief of Detectives can only hope Detective Holland will quickly find a solution which will “reach a conclusion in line with everyone’s perception of justice.”GEbA_Silver

    Epiphany – THE SILVERING

    September 1st, 2016










    A return to the Currency of Kindness ..


    2016 Global Ebook Awards
    Spiritual/Metaphysical Fiction2014 Global Ebook Awards Gold

    The story-within-a-story continues and a sequence of stunning revelations unfolds in Epiphany’s gripping conclusion.

    The 2008 Global Financial Crisis is looming, a time of losses for some in Rosetta’s circle, and the odd astonishing gain. Via the path of mystery, reversals in fortunes and romantic love, Rosetta and her book club unwittingly get involved in a quest for The Silvering: an epoch rumoured to begin in 2019. The world’s concept of worth, however, is keeping alive the Cycle of Suffering that body-kings began in the ancient past … and the chance for a brighter future is fading fast.

    Beneath the red soil of a southern land lies a glimmer of hope — a legacy of Norwegian forest-dwellers — destined to bring about a worldwide epiphany … but only if two people from two very different standpoints can settle their differences in time to fulfil Lillibridge’s mystifying prophecy.

    Discoveries made about Edward Lillibridge in the British village of Tintagel, letters he wrote to his sister and son, unite Matthew and Rosetta in their desire to glean facts, but between them stands a wall of mistrust that threatens the sprites’ noble plans. Each letter adds yet another detail to the tapestry of Lillibridge’s 18th-century existence, and Matthew is confronted with an uncanny truth that challenges his perceptions of life and death.

    Editorial Reviews
    Once again, Ms Terry does an amazing job of working the plots of both the faery world and present day as the characters come to realize they are connected through the Dream Sphere where the past, present and future exist simultaneously … Brilliantly entertaining … Captivating, wondrous and uplifting!
    Stephen Fisher, Readers Favorite

    A monumental achievement … I am in awe of Sonya Deanna Terry’s ability to guide the reader from Australia to England and from the spiritual realm to the world of finance.
    Ray Simmons, Readers’ Favorite

    Extremely complex yet easy to read and follow … an amazing story that combines ancient myth, fairy tales and modern issues in a tremendous promise for the future. Exceptionally well developed characters and a dual plot that merges the past with the present provide plenty of interest, excitement and enlightenment. You can’t help but feel uplifted as the story unfolds, so it is well worth reading – and more than once!

    The Olive Picker

    August 18th, 2016

    51VONrDtCqLMore than a memoir, The Olive Picker is a touching experience brimming with strength and triumph. Facing a horrific attack, a resourceful nurse must summon her wits or lose her life. In this brave and shocking memoir, the author masterfully guides us through the pivotal points of her life, from an abusive upbringing that destroys her self-confidence, to the wreckage of an ill-conceived marriage, and onto a defining moment, full of grace and mercy, which gave her the wings to become the conquering and triumphant phoenix she is today. Kathi’s story is a heart-wrenching testament to the endurance of the human spirit. Beautifully portrayed, The Olive Picker will grab you by the soul and hold you captive to the very last page.
    “A gripping read, deceptively playful at times, this brave book is a stark reminder that truth is often stranger than fiction.” – Vibha Malhotra, author and founder of Literature Studio
