This series is a work of fiction and as such, controversial points of view may be written to enhance the readers experience. The author’s goal has been to make the reader think critically and the views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of the author. The author would like, however, to help readers realize what detrimental effects we have created for our wildlife.

A gripping psychological thriller on the inherent greed and evil of man, dooming the planet.

Two hundred years of tender love between man and alien, political downfalls, wanton violence of unspeakable order tempered with laughter, family loyalty and hope is the thrilling vehicle by which Ms. Accinni conveys her cautionary tale of the merciless disrespect man gives his planet and the vulnerable creatures entrusted to him.

“Baby” introduces Netty, a naive teenage farm girl given in marriage to an older brutal opportunist disguised as a successful citizen during the years of Prohibition in Sussex County, New Jersey. After years of enslavement, Netty flees into the night from her rapist and bootlegger husband, traveling back to the farm worked by her parents, where she rescues an unfamiliar damaged creature she finds in a cave in the woods of her childhood, falling in love with the enigmatic alien she names Baby. Together they find happiness and fulfillment despite the changes to Netty’s body wrought by the proximity of the unusual creature.

Damaged by entry into our atmosphere while pregnant, the confused creature forgets the purpose of his mission, appearing unconcerned with the disappearance of his offspring and savoring the unexpected joy of the love he shares with young Netty.

When a handsome Italian stranger comes into Netty’s life, complications ensue as she falls in love while trying to hide the bizarre and wondrous changes to her farm and her body. Netty, Baby and Wil strive to conquer obstacles thrown in their path by life, succeeding wildly until the heart-rending and astonishingly brutal climax to their story.

This charming, yet brutal story is the prologue to a series that will chill and surprise you as it foretells the selfishly destructive path man has followed since his species evolved. It pulls no punches while allowing Netty and Baby’s influence to transcend mortal life as the world dances toward depraved indifference, introducing other characters along the ride that readers will laugh, shed tears with and learn to despise.

What lengths will Baby and his offspring go to complete their mission? Will it spell Armageddon for the beleaguered planet with its vulnerable and exploited creatures or will man tip the scales himself, leaving those that love the creatures to salvage the pitiful ruins?

Beezley Hills – A Photo Guide

joebeckerphoto

Beezly Hills I’ve lived in Washington nearly my whole life, yet only heard about the Beezley Hills Preserve this year. Beezley Hills Preserve is a 4,800-acre natural area protected by the Nature Conservancy. On the hills north of Quincy, Washington, the preserve has views south over the Columbia Basin and west to the Cascade Mountains. However, the views aren’t the reason to visit – the plant life is. Beezley Hills is part of one of the largest intact tracts of shrub-steppe ecosystem in the state and one of the best wildflower spots in eastern Washington. Spring time, from late April to mid-May, is prime time to visit when most of the wildflowers are blooming. It’s during these few weeks in spring when this sagebrush desert shows its best colors.

Tanya, Nahla and I visited last Friday, April 25, and the wildflowers were not quite yet at their peak bloom. We did see…

Interviews

1. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

So many things. I am a freelance article writer and entrepreneur. I’m originally from Jamaica and grew up in Miami. I moved back a couple of years ago because I needed to make a serious change to start living the life I wanted. Offline, my Dad and I are working on an agribusiness with the plan of growing what we eat and online, I’m writing and working on a marketing business as well so I’m excited about the year so far with the publication of my first fiction book. It’s a dream come true.

2. Describe your book Unchained Hearts (Baxter Family Saga) in 30 words or less.

It’s a drama about the lives of two couples. One is the mother and father of the main character Kyle Avery and the other is Kyle and Brandon. Both couples have to deal with circumstances beyond their control that try to tear them apart permanently.

3. What was the hardest part of writing your book?

It was being careful not to judge every word. Writing a book is hard enough but when you’re judging every word, it can be even more harrowing and that’s my challenge. I want to make sure I’m true to the story first, last and always so I had to make sure I gave it a fair chance to “come out” so to speak

4. What books have had the greatest influence on you?

I am a lover of Barbara Taylor Bradford from early on. I have such respect for her writing, she’s a great epic writer and I love Emma Harte. She’s one of the most inspirational female characters I know. I also loved Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God. Another strong woman who overcame so much and was still standing on her own terms at the end of it.

5. Briefly share with us what you do to market your book?

I have a great publisher who really works hard to get the word out. I do podcasts interviews, blog spotlights, guest blogs, event takeovers, and I work with Twitticus Marketing/ Book Promotions to do targeted email blasts, and tweets on my own as well as my own blog. It’s great to have the support to get the word out and between those two companies, I’m happy.

6. How do you spend your time when you are not writing?

I’m always writing BUT when I’m fortunate to have a lull in my schedule, I hit my Kindle reading list, which is growing. I’m checking out the classic I love like Pride & Prejudice and Jane Eyre. I’m also checking out the books of some of my colleagues because I’ve read the excerpts and I’m bowled over by the talent we have at Beau Coup Publishing. I’m looking forward to reading them.

7. What are you working on next?

Well Book 2 is in the hands of the publisher right now and I’m looking forward to getting that out in about April. I will be prepping for hat release with some special events. In between that I’ll be researching and starting Book 3. So I’m working between the drops and having a great time doing it!

Palessa started reading her first romance novel, at the age of 11. Then she got introduced to V.C. Andrews, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Anne Rice and many more notable contemporary authors as well as some of the classics, A Tale of Two Cities, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Great Gatsby and others. It was during her teenage years that she dabbled in writing. First, it was in her diaries, then she started creating characters, stories about romance, the supernatural and much more. Being an International Baccalaureate student as well as entering college, left little time for writing and so she put it and the ideas aside to pursue a career. It would take almost 20 years, a radical move from the city she grew up in, Miami, FL back to her Caribbean birthplace, and a chance Facebook meeting with Sable Hunter to start the juices flowing again.

After some fits and starts, the Baxter Family Saga was born. Unchained Hearts is Palessa’s first published fiction book with Beau Coup Publishing. Book 2: Portrait of Gray was released April 2014. She considers herself just a storyteller that sees no reason to shy away from the juicier romantic elements. She currently lives in the mountains of Jamaica with her crazy, cracker-munching-mutt Ivy and a farm, primarily managed by agribusiness partner, also known as Dad.



Continue the Baxter Family Saga with book 2

Grayson Baxter, first born of Julian and Joan, has always been the prodigal of the Baxter clan. He’s been deep into drug use since he was a teenager. As his brother Cass enters a new phase in his life and is headed towards taking over the family business, Grayson’s drug use worsens. With the help of his friend, Jerry, he plans to break away from the family that hates him but something goes terribly wrong. After tragedy strikes and with the help of a unique facility, he gets his life back. As he discovers and pursues his desire to become a therapist, he falls in love with Bindi Gail and they start a life together until he has to make a decision that tears them apart.

As he navigates an unexpected turn of events, Cass disappears just as he and Virgilia were about to embark on a cruise. Grayson works to find out what happened and befriends a police officer with whom he has a special history. Carla Genny is a bright officer, a budding detective being eyed for a special hybrid of the Bureau and local police. Their professional relationship turns to friendship and becomes more as she, along with specially chosen members of the squad, works with him on a serial rape case that’s scaring Miami. The existence and protection of a special witness puts the team on high alert. It’s during this last assignment that Carla’s training is put to the test and Grayson’s love is realized.

Love Game

e-Tinkerbell

Romeo-and-Juliet

Each age has always had its own set of rules for courting, for sure. Certainly nowadays, the equality of the sexes, the crush of old taboos, Sex and the City, why not, have utterly affected our behaviour in playing modern love games, as the roles are no longer fixed and immutable.  In the past, the man led the “minuet” of courting and the lady followed him in the dance.

Hawei's_Dorigen_During the Middle ages and Renaissance,for example, the body of conventions which governed the relation of aristocratic lovers was called “courtly love “: a sort of idealized and sometimes even illicit kind of love in which the knight consecrated himself to a woman often superior in rank or even married – the prototypes are Lancelot and Queen Genevieve – who deliberately displayed a certain indifference in order to preserve her reputation. The ” mistress”  was certainly beautiful, pure like an angel, distant ; therefore the essence of pleasure in this love game stood in…
