All Things Russian: A Journey through Stories, Culture, and Food

I was born and raised in Russia when it was still a part of the Soviet Union, or USSR. For a long time, Russia was hidden behind the Iron Curtain and had a mysterious image of the Evil Empire to many Westerners, specifically Americans. But Russia was a mystery not just to outsiders, but to its own people as well. One of my college history professors used to refer to Russia as a country with unpredictable past. Why? Because every time a new leader came to power, all state-issued history books were changed and rewritten. And all history books were state-issued.

The Story Of my Life ~ Someone’s Life

This blog is to help me understand what is going on in my life, because I find that until I share my experiences it is hard to make sense of them and what they mean to the bigger picture. When there’s nowhere else to turn, your typewriter is there to listen without judgement, and just let you bleed. Welcome to the inside of my head.

Forgive my intrusion into your day. But as I sit staring at the sky and Anita Baker in my ears, I contemplate the splendor that is you. When you are not here, I long for you to be. When you are here, I God silently and aloud for that blessing…You are the Bible verse that people always speak about, that book of Ruth that comes up in conversations. With every inch of melanin that composes my dark skin, every poem that has come from or will ever come from my hands or mouth, louder than I cheer for the Bears or Lakers,

 I love you. I love you.

That’s right, Amazon are now calling me a ‘mover’ and a ‘shaker’ – clearly they’ve never seen me on a dancefloor!

Time Killer cover


February 22, 2013

Time Killer by Todd M. Thiede

“A fast-paced thriller centered on a brutal, time-obsessed serial killer.

The expression “killing time” rarely means murder, but here, the victims of a serial killer must pay for time they’ve wasted, often with both their money and their lives. In a brutal scene from the opening chapter, an entire family is murdered after a stranger invades the family’s home and accuses the patriarch of wasting his time. Veteran cop Max Larkin is on the case. Unfortunately, he’s also been assigned a new partner; though she’s green in the field—she has “very sad eyes” and prays upon arriving at the first crime scene—she gives the hardened old detective a new perspective he never knew he needed.

But as the serial killer claims more victims, a pattern emerges that neither Max nor his new partner can ignore. With brisk pacing, Thiede’s debut brims with action, violence and, occasionally, emotion. Though the book takes a while to find its heart, procedural fans will feel right at home. Larkin feels like a guy worth rooting for, despite filling the shoes of the beaten-down, grizzled, old loner cop trope a little too well. His interactions with his new partner, plus the twists and revelations regarding his past, give him enough of a pass to get readers invested in the story and looking forward to his next outing. Larkin’s story doesn’t break any boundaries, but it’ll keep crime and thriller fans wrapped up in its twisting plot, fast pace and memorable detective.

Plenty of shock value and a charismatic, if formulaic, male lead.”

Author King Samuel Benson [Book Excerpts, Poems, Short Stories, Inspirationals, Nook/Kindle Books]

My name’s King. I was born in the 90’s. I went to a school in Lagos, a coastal city in Nigeria, West Africa. I started school at the age of 2. Necessity made me self-reliant and, maybe, prematurely ambitious. But I’m just like every other young guy out there. All I wanted was what I never had.

Author’s Thought – SLS Oborowsky

Writing for those who love to read.

Whether you read a book or magazine, go on the internet and search places, people or things they all take you to somewhere from the comfort of your home. They open you up to a world that may be similar or different from yours. This is my online space, flying with wordpress, to share with you all kinds of things: who I am in fragments, my accomplishments, my photos and anything I find interesting or strange that makes you think about things. It may be serious, some not so serious and some just darned right ridiculous.

Welcome to my independent publisher website. For anyone new to the terminology, the term “indie books” simply means independently published books. That is to say, indie books are books written by and often published by do-it-yourself, independent authors and publishers, like me.

Monster: Book one cover

Monster: Book one cover

Dani R.R. Hermit and Nevi Star, or Hermie and Nevi, are writers.

What do they write, you ask?

Our genre is gay erotica, with a spice of horror, mystery, comedy, drama and sometimes a western or space opera.  We love boys loving boys (in all the wrongest ways).  If you love that too, then maybe we can be friends.

Who are we when we’re not writing?

We’re life partners who’ve been together 13 years through all of life’s ups, downs and craziness. Our’s has been a long and sometimes arduous road, but it’s only made the journey deeper and more interesting, adding fuel and fire to the stories we can tell.

Nevi is a spirit artist and a shaman. She is a World Walker.  She does all the cover art for WSP books. She is currently working on a post-apocalyptic pony novel of her own and a spirit squirrel oracle deck. You can read more about her work on her ROCKSTAR blog here.

Hermie has been studying tarot for 20 years and reading professionally for a small, private clientele for about 13 years. She is also a genius at making sweet treats – homemade candies, cookies, cupcakes. (All gluten free!) She does all the cooking for our little pirate crew (or we would all starve or poison ourselves lol) and loves her neurotic kitten. You can find out more about her tarot work on her website here  and her blog here.

What inspires us?

Our first love and inspiration is Japanese Anime & Manga! We discovered Yaoi and it was all over. We already had a love affair with slash fan fiction, so taking that to some anime based fics really developed our style into what it is today. A close second is music. We create playlists that are character, story-arc or novel specific and play them at top volume while we are driving, writing and sleeping! We do karaoke in our living room as a means to cleanse our story demons and open up to the next day’s work (and because it’s a blast to get together with our pirate crew and sing our hearts out!)

Siren Call


​Who is the mysterious woman standing on the beach who, initially, only Eleanor can see?

After visiting their holiday cottage, without incident, year after year, Bill and Eleanor are not prepared for the turmoil their lives are about to be thrown into.

As she weaves her spell over the innocent couple, the siren begins to wreak her revenge, in a cold and calculated manner.

Yet, is there a way to get through to her, to convince her not to destroy everyone who dares to stand in her path?

 The Death of May Elizabeth Trump

The Deathly Silence Is About To Be Broken.

She disliked the company of others and death did little to warm her spirit. She had led an independent life and she faced death in much the same way. She was finally alone, finally free from the mindless babble of others, at least that’s what she thought. May Elizabeth Trump was the rarest of spirits and she was none too happy about it either. She was a dead medium, a ghost who can speak with the living, and her services were to become in great demand. Flung into the limelight and smothered with unwanted attention, May soon discovers that it is not only ghosts with long awaited messages that have taken an interest in her. Something dark was lurking in the shadows, stalking her. Even the dead are not left to rest in peace. Dead Medium: A humorous, character driven story and a unique vision of life after death. Not your average ghost story.
