Title: Doppelgänger

Author: YL Parker

Release Date: 17 April 2017

Goodreads | Amazon 

Summary: 

Logline: Fighting and curing deadly strains of bacteria can be tougher that even when you have to time travel in order to do so.

Kristin is a tireless physician who spends her day and nights diagnosing bacteria. The alluring twenty-three-year-old and her mate Peter, who holds the cure to these strains, are separated by time, making them almost impossible to remedy. Peter is an altruistic nomad, a doctor with a fantastic smile and gentle heart. He often falls through time landing at a point where he must create a cure to one deadly strain of bacteria that threatens to destroy all of mankind.

When Sandy Island, lying in the South Pacific, began to sink into the ocean, engineers found a way to save it with a shift in time every few years. Its happy residents were content with their lives until elite scientist, Adam Grigori, searched the sea for a serum to thwart time & induce immortality. His find, harvested from sea animals, is the same serum Adam used on his daughter Dr. Kristin Grigori and medical assistant Dr. Peter Grayson. Kristin and Peter learn all too late that her father infused the serum with a Time Matrix which is illegal and introduces bacteria into the world.

Sandy Island

The Calderans were sweet romantic people. They sat in their huts and played their banjos and harmonicas. The Sandy Island inhabitants entertained themselves with simple things. Until one day the water came and the island began to sink, the engineers built high-rises and tunnels to the ocean floor to stabilize the island. The land on the surface was uninhabitable. Fifty years would pass then another fifty years; the water would rise ever higher.

It was the most beautiful place to live on Earth, and it frequently shifted in and out of time.  The last time the island was seen on Earth was in 1989. It disappeared from the maps of the land dwellers, and the people of Sandy Island were glad.  Sandy Island was made of cliffs, waterfalls, and grottos.  The surface was covered with waterfalls. The Calderans created skyscrapers out of rock and titanium that stretched to the rocks below the land.

Some lived in high rises above the island that reached to the sky, while others lived in caves, caverns and grottos beneath the ground. The winds and the weather were harsh and unpredictable. It rained for days and weeks, when the Time Shift came, and they found themselves thrown into another land full of dry wastelands and barren deserts. It was only for a moment but it felt like a lifetime. The thirst hung in their mouths and they could not escape it. Some called it a curse, and tied them to this unique island nation. Some could not and would not leave. None ever tried to leave, for fear of what might happen.

There were stories of those who tried to leave their island country. Dried and brittle, skeletons were found on nearby islands.  Their fate outside their world was the ever-yielding thirst. Scientists researched the animals of the sea to find a link that would help them weather the Time Shift that plagued their land and their people. The elite looked to the creatures of the island for immortality. The Nautalum invited the Calderans into their lives with open arms. Until one day, the cuddly race of sea creatures saw into the future how the Calderans would repay them. The Nautalum made the thirst part of them. So they would never forget. When the water came in full force, the Calderan scientists searched for another weapon, they devised one, time travel to control those fifty years, and they stood ready to use it.

Prologue

There always has to be somebody who takes responsibility for our sins. When I was a child, I thought it was God.

 ~ Interview ~ 

Charlie: Hello, thank you for this interview, how are you?
Angelina J. Steffort: I am fine, thank you, Charlie, and not as sleep
deprived as the past few months. And how are you?
C.: I’m well, I guess, the small one keeps you up. Can you tell us more about yourself?
A.: What to say…I am probably not your stereotypical writer. My educational background is in electrical engineering, music and business. The writing was never part of my life plan. I can’t resist chocolate, weird
animals are my favorite (sting ray, axolotl, tapir and kiwi), and when I have coffee I wish I could bath in the milk foam instead of drinking it
C.: My first question will be, when did you first start writing?
A: As a child in school we had a lot of assignments in creative writing, but I never particularly liked it. I started working on my first book in 2010, wrote 16 pages and quit because the idea for The Wings Trilogy came to my mind. Seven months later the book was finished (and another seven years later I finally found the courage to publish).
C.: Do you remember the first story you ever read and the impact it had on you?
A: No. But then, I never enjoyed reading as a child. What did have an impact later in life was Kafka’s Transformation.
C.: Why did you write this book and what are your expectations on its behalf?
A: At that time I was travelling a lot for business and studies. I couldn’t make music the way I had before (I had conducted a choir) and apparently needed a new creative outlet. I was working unsuccessfully on a high fantasy story when I had the idea for White, and I just knew it would be the first book in a trilogy. As for the expectations, I am humbled by what has been happening since the book release. White has been on the bestseller list on the German Amazon in its categories for a few weeks now. The book is getting great reviews and is climbing reading lists on Goodreads. If I could wish for anything it would be that the story will bring joy and tears to a lot more readers throughout its lifespan. Letting people escape reality and giving them space to dream is what I am hoping to achieve. And a movie deal
C.: What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
A: Writing is like watching a movie in my head and taking notes. My characters never cease to surprise me, and I can never predict what they are going to do next. It never gets boring. If my stories make only one person happy, it’s worth writing them.
C.: What motivated you to become an indie author?
A: I never really considered going the traditional route without proving the market for my work. In my day job, I work a lot in innovation and with startups. I am used to the risk of that pre-investment or early
investment phase. A traditional publisher is an investor and an investor is
always seeking to minimize risk. So I am using book one of The Wings Trilogy to show that there is a market, and want to work with
an agent and publishing house for the rest of the trilogy.
C.: When youre not writing, how do you spend your time?
A: I have a 6 months old son. He is the priority.
C.: What are you working on next?
A: I am finishing books two and three of The Wings Trilogy at the moment. Next will be a book for a slightly younger target group. And eventually, I will pick up the initial 16 pages of the high fantasy story and make it work. I won’t give up.
C.: Can you describe your desk?
A: I don’t have a desk. I write everywhere but at a desk — floor, train, aeroplane, couch, coffee house, bed, you name it
C.: Thank you for the interview. Good luck with the book.
A.: Thank you, Charlie. It was a pleasure chatting with you today.
C.: Today we had an interview with Angelina J. Steffort, whose debuted with a fantastic novel White! Don’t miss your chance to read it, it’s absolutely fantastic, and I’ll be soon posting the review of it on the blog, But you don’t need to take my word for it, check it out yerself!

Title: Rude Boy USA

Series: Rude Boy USA #1

Release Date: 25 December 2015

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Summary: 

Say good-bye to the era of godfathers. The Chimera Group has put a new face on organized crime.

Mob boss Bernie Banks and his associates—John, Ben, and Jerome—differ from your ordinary Sicilian and Irish mob families. Two white, two black, they style themselves after the Rude Boy culture made popular in Jamaica.

Operating as an investment shell company supported by illegal activities, the Chimera Group hopes to become as powerful as other crime families and gain respect from the Cosa Nostra. Bernie, a war veteran of Jewish and Greek descent, begins his business in his apartment and grows it into a multimillion-dollar empire. He and his crew resemble a more sophisticated subculture of urban street gangsters with their Ray-Ban sunglasses, loafers, and debonair style. But they want fear and admiration.

Their efforts draw the attention of the rival Ambrosino family, and they face internal strife when one of the associates begins dating a former Playboy Club waitress who wants in on the group.

Will they make it to the top, or will they fall?

PROLOGUE

In the middle of the night in a trashy abandoned lot in Harlem, New York, there were four men. Three of them had arrived together as a team. The fourth man, Sammy, was their victim, and they had tied up his arms and legs. Sammy was not associated with the others. He had stolen money from the leader of the group. Sammy would not divulge details of the theft. His silence did not help his situation as each of the three men took turns beating him until they got him to talk. One of the three men turned to the others. “He looks young. He looks very young.”

One of the men responded, “He looks old enough to go to war. Nobody cares how young you look when you are in a war.”

Sammy continued to taunt them back. “You guys are fucking trash,” Sammy said to the men, and he spat on one of them.

The man Sammy spat on told him, “Watch your goddamn mouth!” Sammy ensured them that they would never get information from him and said they could kiss his ass. The three men looked at each other. They began torturing and pistol-whipping Sammy in return. Irritated, the man who Sammy spat on got the idea to stuff money in Sammy’s ass and mouth for being greedy and talking too much shit. He had warned the tied-up man to watch his mouth, and this was the consequence of ignoring that warning. Once they were finished with him, they put a plastic bag over his head, tossed him in the trunk of an abandoned car in the lot, and closed the trunk.

A fifth man rode up in a car. He got out to see the damage that the three men had produced. They opened the trunk to show him. The fifth man’s face showed his objection. “Was this necessary? Are we wasting money now?” the gentleman said to his three associates.

One of them said, “It’s theater.”

Another associate added, “He asked for it. He asked us to do this. He told me to kiss his ass. He likes money, so…” He shrugged.

The last associate added, “It’s only two hundred dollars in singles. It looks like a lot, but it isn’t.” The fifth man looked down at the body and slammed the trunk shut.

“Fine, we will discuss this back at the office,” he said. He and his three associates got in the car and headed back to Midtown Manhattan.
