MANKIND’S GREATEST DISCOVERY … has been kept secret for a reason.

THE ORIGINS OF OUR SPECIES ARE NOT WHAT WE THOUGHT.

But as all life on earth is threatened with extinction, that which has lain buried for millennia may yet prove to be mankind’s only hope …

An ancient secret. A cataclysmic act of God … humanity’s last stand.

In the near future Sarah Morgan, an English archaeologist, is in a race against time to prove the impossible: that an advanced human ancestor once populated the Earth. But there are those that will kill to protect this most ancient of secrets, and when Sarah finally gets the proof she craves it is cruelly wrenched from her grasp; but never one to lie down Sarah finds another path, a path that propels her into a quest that will span continents and change her life forever.

Simultaneously the world prepares for the arrival of 2011 AG5, an asteroid that will impact off the South African coastline with the force akin to the strike that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years previous. Humanity has long been planning for this colossal event and many preparations have been made to counteract its after effects in order to preserve the ever fragile global economy and civilisation itself. As the world holds its collective breath, below the surface government-run clandestine subterranean facilities are gearing up for the challenges ahead. These facilities are run by the gifted and ever mercurial Professor Steiner who has overseen a global programme charged with the preservation of mankind, as the clock ticks down towards zero hour his schedule is on track; however everything might not turn out as smoothly as he’d hoped…

Grant: The Man Who Won The Civil War – Amazon
by Robin Neillands

Genre: Memoirs and Biographies
Price: $0.99 Save $3.00

“Immensely readable … a blast of fresh air.” -The Spectator

Sam Grant made famous the expression ‘unconditional surrender’, which is how most of his campaigns ended — for his opponents.

A hard-drinking soldier in a hard-drinking army, he led the Union armies to victory, first in the West and then in the East, eventually compelling the main Confederate army under Robert E. Lee to surrender at Appomattox in 1865.

Yet at the beginning of the Civil War no one, least of all the man himself, anticipated that Grant would lead the Union forces to victory.

Ulysses S. Grant was a failure as a pre-war soldier. His subsequent business career was even worse. His emergence as a successful general and eventual promotion to Commander-in-Chief is a stunning example of how a soldier’s peacetime career sometimes gives no indication of how he will perform in a major war.

Grant’s advance down the Mississippi realized General Scott’s ‘Anaconda’ plan and ultimately cut the Confederacy in half. His capture of Vicksburg, just as Robert E. Lee’s invasion of the North was halted at Gettysburg, spelt the end for the Confederacy.

Yet Grant’s battles in 1864 cost the Union army dearly and he has never quite shaken off the reputation as a ‘butcher’ who bludgeoned down the Army of Northern Virginia by sheer weight of numbers.

Robin Neillands investigates how and why Grant emerged from pre-war obscurity and whether his ultimate victory was won by brains or brawn.

“A story of warmth and love mixed with adventure and excitement that will keep you turning the pages until the end.” – Kristie Cook, bestselling author

Amazon and Apple iBooks Bestselling Author

All’s fair when you’re in love with War.

For seventeen-year-old Mia Ahlström, a world ruled by order is the only world she allows. A lifetime of chore charts, to-do lists and study schedules have helped earn her a spot at Redwood State University’s engineering program. And while her five year plan includes finding her very own happily-evah-aftah, years at an all-girls boarding school left her feeling woefully unprepared for keg parties and co-ed extracurricular activities.

So nothing surprises her more than catching the eye of Tyr Fredriksen at her first college party. The imposing Swede is arrogantly charming, stubbornly overprotective, and runs hot-and-cold in ways that defy reason . . . until Mia learns that she’s fallen for the Norse God of War; an immortal battle deity hiding on Midgard (Earth) to protect a valuable Asgardian treasure from a feral enemy. With a price on his head, Tyr brings more than a little excitement to Mia’s rigidly controlled life. Choosing Tyr may be the biggest distraction—or the greatest adventure—she’s ever had.
