Meet Tyler Thompson from METATRON

Hello, I’m twelve-year-old Tyler Thompson and I have a secret. What is it? Well, I can’t tell you right now. However what I can tell you is that I’m not your typical "normal" boy. After my father's tragic death, I found myself in one predicament after another, until one day me and my faithful dog Maxx fall into a cesspool of mysterious green goop.

And what do you know, just like every other day I got grounded. Maxx and I did stink pretty badly. I guess it was my fault since I didn’t listen to my mom. Maybe one of these days I will.

Anyway, several days later my grandfather, who I thought was dead, bestows me with an object not from this earth. It was a small chrome pizza slice looking object that fit in my hand. It then…, oops, can’t tell you what happens next. But, I soon discover I have strange but cool powers. Unfortunately, so does the sinister Dr. Payne.

Together with my best friend Lukas, who also has a special ability, (can’t tell you what that is either) and Maxx, I embark on a journey to put an end to Dr. Payne’s evil scheme to control the world's children. To do so, I must make a life-altering choice—one that could change the world.

Join me on my journey. Together we will get our emotions flowing and our blood pumping. By the end we’ll both be inspired. Hold on because the ride is about to begin; METATRON: THE ANGEL HAS RISEN is available in Kindle and paperback editions at http://bitly.com/JWnMBh?r=bb

Oh, here is a little bit about the person who created me. Laurence A. St. John was born on January 11, 1965 in Toledo Ohio. At the age of 23 and after three years of dedication, hard work and sweat, in 1988, Laurence received his first-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. When he was 25 years old he fell in love then married the love of his life, Julie in 1990. Mr. St. John adopted her two young wonderful children Joe and Jan shortly after. He continually writes in his spare time; weekends and after work, and is endlessly inspired by his three grandkids Kendall, Eli and Sadie.

Guest Blog - Author Kenna McKinnon


Introducing an amazing author Kenna McKinnon and her new novel SPACEHIVE
Pick up an ebook or paperback copy today!

Saturday September 1st,  was launch day for SPACEHIVE, my MG/YA sci-fi novel published by Imajin Books, 
available in Kindle and print on www. amazon.com http://tinyurl.com/cvg9c4t and in print on CreateSpace  https://www.createspace.com/3966763

Earth was in danger.
Jealous eyes gazed toward our Sun from a planet called Jive Hive in another star system, black compound eyes that peered without compassion as though we were flies caught on sticky paper ready for the fire.
The first of their suns was setting as blood-orange light spilled into the valley. Three female worker bees, two over seven feet tall and the other not quite five feet, sat under a purple-flowered tree, sorting through various blossoms, while other bees worked nearby.
"We can't go on like this much longer," Banter said. "There are too many of us. The hive has to find a new home. The Black Watch wasps, vicious as they are, know what they're doing. They've been scanning the skies for hundreds of years and keeping a check on our population."
She sat next to her cousins, Zibb and Bipp. They had worked all day collecting pollen for their hive. Now they rested and talked of the Imperative—to colonize. The whole Jive Hive planet was abuzz with the news.
"Yes," Zibb agreed. "The queen said this one is a plum ripe for the picking and only eight light years away. We'll be tired from the long sleep when we arrive. It'll be a brand new adventure for us. A new Jive Hive."
"Too bad there are beings there." Banter selected a fresh flower and began culling its nectar.
"Too bad we have to kill them all," Zibb said. "I've heard the new planet's green and warm. The wasp scouts said that it's abused by its inhabitants, though."
"Their fault then and all the more reason to kill them. We must take it while we can."

Kenna McKinnon is a freelance writer/photographer and self-employed medical transcriptionist who lives in Edmonton, Canada. Although her degree is in Anthropology (with a minor in Psychology), Kenna has spent her life writing. Kenna has lived successfully with schizophrenia for many years. She has also published an anthology of poetry ebook on Kindle, available on www.amazon.com as well.

"If I knew then what I know now I would have put clowns on my wedding cake" from PLAYING DEAD by Jody E. Lebel.

Excerpt 3.7.12

Another excerpt from my upcoming novel...

"Hey, that was pretty cool what you did Tyler."
"Thanks. I thought so too," Tyler mumbled to the voice behind him.
"Nobody ever stood up to Graeson before. Ever since I've been here he's always been a jerk to me."
       Tyler turned to see who talked to him and he could not believe his eyes. A beautiful girl with long dark brown hair and dark brown eyes about ten feet away, kneeling by the hallway wall, avoiding flying objects and clutching her books, smiled back at him.

Excerpt 2.29.12

Here is another excerpt from my upcoming novel.

"Tyler climbed over the rusty chain link fence while Maxx crawled under. He leaned over the edge of the cesspool then reached into his pocket to pull out the trusty test tube he used for collecting bugs. The same bugs he loved to hide in Rebekka MacDougal's purse."

Excerpt 2.23.12

Here is another excerpt from my upcoming novel.

"Tyler wiped the perspiration off his forehead with the back of his hand and began to reminisce while he meandered down the stone and dirt road. It took his mind off the heat and besides, he always liked hearing about his grandfather. He wished he could have known him."
