Sea Monster Cove Offers Visitors Unforgettable Virtual Adventures

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The doors have now opened to a virtual island getaway where you can take in breathtaking underwater views, explore futuristic aquariums, and enjoy five-star accommodations and endless entertainment—all from the COVID-friendly comfort of your own home. There’s just one tiny catch.

The star attractions at this particular resort are the most terrifying prehistoric sharks and sea creatures that ever lived.

Sea Monster Cove (located at www.seamonstercove.com) is the latest creation from The Meg author, Steve Alten. And this time, he’s taking fans of man-eating prehistoric creatures even deeper into his imagination. Sea Monster Cove is a groundbreaking concept of storytelling that will immerse you in every aspect of an adventure like nothing you have ever experienced before. This multifaceted, interactive entertainment platform features an unfolding episodic web series, Where Sea Monsters Roam; heart-pounding aquarium and cage-diving interactions with the nastiest sea creatures on the planet; and an adrenaline-fueling (and quite addictive) video game.

The setting is Maug, a remote island in the Mariana Archipelago where eight years ago, French marine biologist Dr. Maxime Rostand and his team discovered hot mineral water feeding into Maug’s lagoon from somewhere below. When a listing Filipino fishing trawler enters the cove hauling an immense whale in its deep sea net, the scientists discover that the dead beast is actually a pregnant, 60-foot, 50,000-pound undiscovered prehistoric species of Mako, related to the Black Demon shark. An emergency C-section saves two of her 15 pups (and the future stars of Sea Monster Cove): Snowflake (an albino) and Layla (pure Black Demon). Through a series of events (which will unfold through monthly episodes of Where Sea Monsters Roam), Dr. Rostand discovers the source of the hot mineral water to be a primordial aquifer located two miles beneath the sea floor—its inhabitants dating back 380 million years.

All of the attractions at Sea Monster Cove are created using major-motion-picture-worthy 3D animation. The sharks and sea creatures look and act just like the real thing. And unlike the species housed in typical aquariums, these critters don’t just swim around in serene circles. These beasts know you’re watching them, and some clearly don’t like it.

The subscription-based site (priced well under the cost of a movie ticket) also includes an education center with tons of background information, a private library featuring enhanced versions of Alten’s novels (including curriculum materials for distance learners) and a collec-tion of Alten’s original screenplays. There’s even a PG13 membership option for younger viewers.

And the waters surrounding Sea Monster Cove are anything but stagnant. The designers tweak the animals’ behavioral patterns on a regular basis. Plus, each month a new Prehis-toric Sea Aquarium will open, containing its own menu of super predators that will appear in the web series and video game. The animals will also age from the moment you first encoun-ter them, and you won’t want to miss a single milestone. So come for a visit; stay for a bite—or two. Welcome to Sea Monster Cove!

Sea Monster Cove creator Steve Alten is the NY Times and international best-selling author of 20 thrillers, including The MEG series (with a major motion picture starring Jason Statham and the sequel, MEG-2: The TRENCH, in pre-production). Two more of his series have also been optioned as movies: The LOCH and one other underwater feature, which cannot be announced just yet (but the enhanced version of the novel is featured in the website’s private library). Alten is also the founder and director of the nonprofit Adopt-an-Author teen reading program.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Romance And The Old West Skillfully Melded In Short Story Collection

If you’re a stickler for historical accuracy, romance in the Old West, and just plain superb writing, Holly Bargo’s short-story collection, Satin Boots: Six Short Romances of the Old West, will more than satisfy your reading needs.

Bargo draws well-developed characters in believable situations, such as the risk-taking woman who finally runs into more trouble than she’d anticipated, a mail order bride whose husband-to-be has changed the rules of the game, and an undertaker who finds himself resurrecting a body he thought he’d be burying.

Set in the American Old West, Bargo’s Satin Boots stories are sweet, clean romances, cleverly infused with history and humor.

Here’s just a taste of these engrossing tales:

• “Angels High:” Making a living winning at a man’s game, Angelica Durant has learned to expect trouble now and then, especially when the stakes are high. But this time, she gets far more than she bargained for when trouble finds her.
• “The Mail Order Bride’s Choice:” Seeking to improve her circumstances, an indigent woman makes a perilous cross-country journey to meet her fiancé, who’s got plans for her ― and they don’t include marriage.
• “Coming Home:” Dessie Humphrey is just trying to hold on to the family farm in the face of seemingly endless hardship. When help arrives in the form of a wanted gunslinger, she’s in no position to refuse.
• “Resurrection:” Undertakers bury the dead; they don’t ordinarily bring them back to life. Antonio DiCarlo does just that when the body of a lovely Swedish immigrant lands on his doorstep.
• “Pride and Peace:” It’s an open secret on the Lazy Five that Jessie North is a woman. That doesn’t stop Daniel Harper from behaving badly when he learns, but when the proud half-breed saves his life, can Daniel overcome deep-seated prejudices?
• “The Rancher’s First Love:” When a gravely wounded Chinese woman collapses on Clint Cheswick’s front porch, he doesn’t expect to be competing with his half-breed foreman for her affection.

Author Holly Bargo works full-time as a freelance writer and editor and lives with her husband on a hobby farm in southwest Ohio. They have two children, both grown. Bargo’s writing includes fantasy and romance, often combined; and since 2014, she has published more than 20 titles, from short stories to novels. In 2019, she and bestselling author Russ Towne published Six Shots Each Gun, a collection of short westerns. While Holly Bargo is a pseudonym, she’d like readers to know that the name was also attached to a very real and temperamental Appaloosa mare.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Out Of Darkness Puts The Bite Back In Young Adult Vampire Genre

Brian Porter’s mysterious, sudden onset obesity makes him an easy target for school bullies—physically and emotionally. Even his one-time best friend has joined in the bullying, teasing Brian relentlessly since his unexpected metamorphosis. Brian hates what he sees in his reflection, too. He hopes that summer break will offer him a reprieve.

On the first day of summer, Brian’s former best friend, Chris, challenges Brian to enter the neighborhood’s scariest house. The trade-off? Chris promises not to tease Brian all summer, and it’s a chance for Brian to impress his new female friend, Sarah. But there’s a dark, toothy reason behind the home’s evil reputation, and Brian and Chris are about to discover it.

Out of Darkness from M. A. Richards puts the bite back in young adult horror, with evil vampires who fight on behalf of Satan to enslave humanity and werewolves who are warriors, fighting for God to keep humanity free.

When Chris and Brian uncover a pair of vampires in the neighborhood “haunted house,” Chris is captured, and Brian finds himself fighting to survive a vampire attack—a battle he’d lose if not for a daring rescue by the vampires’ ancient enemies: werewolves. To save him from a deadly wound, Brian’s lycanthropic allies turn him into one of their own.

Now, Brian is a powerful young werewolf with a strong new body. He’s also become part of an ancient war to protect mankind. It’s his destiny to revitalize the Holy Warriors, a once great werewolf order sworn to protect the world from vampire domination. But the order’s leaders have become corrupt—and worse, they want Brian dead. He’d prefer to keep living.

Author M. A. Richards grew up in the country in Oregon, the fourth of five boys, and enjoyed watching monster movies. He attended the former Ricks College (now Brigham Young University—Idaho) and spent most of his life in the US Marine Corps. He currently lives in Texas with his family. Richards was recently diagnosed with a deadly disease called sarcoidosis. He wrote Out of Darkness for his children. To learn more, please visit https://www.authormarichards.com/.

Fast-Paced Mystery Dishes Up Murder On A Dinner Train

Honey Howell returned to her small, quiet hometown of Bardstown, Kentucky, thrilled by the prospect of working with her grandfather at his legendary bourbon distillery and reconnecting with K.C. Cleary — a master distiller and “the one who got away.”

What she didn’t expect was to discover K.C. with a knife in his chest. Honey’s a marketing whiz, not a sleuth, but that doesn’t curb her determination to bring the murderer to justice. Honey’s digging dredges up more than clues, and soon she realizes that her genteel hometown has dark secrets lurking beneath the surface of their polite society.

Also in the hunt for K.C.’s killer is Texan Sam Gentry, Bardstown’s newest detective. When he meets Honey he falls in love at first sight — with her bloodhound, Elvis. Sam and Elvis are a match made in heaven — both are relentless in their dogged pursuit for a murderer. When Honey finds another dead master distiller on a dinner train, Sam and Elvis work together to sniff out the truth. Sam’s greatest challenge, however, is thwarting amateur sleuth Honey from interfering with his investigation while preventing her from becoming another victim.

With a charming, relatable protagonist, the inviting backdrop of Kentucky Bourbon Country, and an irresistible bloodhound, Murder on the Bluegrass Bourbon Train from popular inspirational romance author Scarlett Dunn marks Dunn’s fantastic first voyage into the cozy mystery genre.

Puzzle-solving readers will enjoy the fast-paced narrative and believable characters as Hon-ey and Sam scout for clues — with a little help from Elvis, of course! With no shortage of po-tential suspects, the twists and turns throughout attempt to throw readers off the track. Who did it and why? Hop aboard to find out!

Before becoming a published author, Scarlett Dunn was an entrepreneur. In addition to writing cozy mysteries, Dunn has published several historical inspirational romance novels. She lives in Kentucky, and as an avid outdoorswoman she enjoys any activity under the sun, where she develops her characters and plots. When not writing, her favorite days are spent with those she loves. She has many hobbies, including making bourbon balls. She would tell you her closely guarded recipe, but then she’d have to throw you off the train!

Peace Activist French/American Disobeys Israeli Court Order: Went Underground In Palestine

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Peace Activist French/American Disobeys Israeli Court Order: Went Underground In Palestine

Frank Romano, Ph.D, disobeyed a court order to leave Israel and Palestine on September 25, 2018. Romano, preferring to continue his work in Palestine, disobeyed the court order and went underground to avoid arrest.

Romano then worked with a team of lawyers in Ramallah, West Bank, preparing a case against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Secretary of Defense Avigdor Lieberman and others, before the International Criminal Court for War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity and other serious international offenses.

In 2018, Frank Romano and other activists stood in front of an Israeli bulldozer preparing for the destruction of a Bedouin village ─ Al Khan al Ahmar in the Jericho Valley, West Bank. He was promptly arrested and imprisoned in Jerusalem. He was thrown into a cell with four hardened Israeli criminals who immediately attacked him, striking and stabbing him with a sharp object. Bloodied and injured, he broke away from the onslaught and pounded on the door. After the guards came and saw the dripping blood, they pulled him from the cell and locked him in solitary confinement.

The following day, Romano was to stand trial in Jerusalem. The police, instead of taking him to court for the trial, drove him to the airport after an Israeli Military Court convicted him of a felony and ordered his deportation. When the judge became aware of the police duplicity, she ordered them to return Romano to Jerusalem to stand trial. After the trial, he was acquitted and released.

For a decade, through interfaith grassroots efforts, Frank Romano has brought Jews, Muslims and Christians together from all corners of the world in support of peace. However, this was a voyage into a tense war zone, the first time defending Palestinian Bedouins, and he has a story to tell.

In Love and Terror in the Middle East (5th Edition), Romano recounts this last voyage to the troubled Holy Land. It covers his arrest, his experiences in jail, his living under-ground in Palestine, and then his second arrest and subsequent deportation. He presently lives and works teaching French in the Sabra and Chatilla Palestinian and Syrian refugee camps in Beirut, Lebanon.

Tenured Professor: University of Paris
Author of Love and Terror in the Middle East, 5th Edition
