EXCERPT: Author Walter Lovett @WitinRadio Tells Tale of Bible Warrior Samson


"Samson: War of the Judges"
Walter Lovett

**Highly Rated at 4.6 Stars!!**
Click image to view on Amazon

An elite group of ancient Israeli military leaders are tasked with securing the freedom of their clansman from a series of ruthless oppressors. Known as Judges these select men and women fight decades for their homeland as well as their freedom from a group of savage Imperialists known as the Philistines.

The Mighty Samson is the last in the line of the Judges.Endowed with supernatural strength and abilities,Samson battles his clansman’s tormentors for years leaving casualties on both sides of the Gaza strip.It’s an all out war and the fate of Israel rest in the balance.

The tribe of Dan was one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. It was often considered the least of the tribes compared to those of the mighty Judah, Levi, Benjamin, and the others. The tribe of Dan was the second largest of the tribes; Judah’s was the largest. After Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, Dan existed as a loose confederation of Israel, meaning it had no central government. What Jehovah decided to bring out of the tribe of Dan was unlike anything mankind had ever seen before. In short, the great Jehovah was working to bring Israel from out of the oppression of the Philistines, and he was about to establish them as a great nation of people.

Since the deaths of Joshua and Moses, the Hebrew people had struggled to find a leader. There was no unified nation of Israel; Israel had no monarchy and was scattered across parts of modern day Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa, and Turkey. Jehovah had raised up new leaders known as Judges. Leaders such as Deborah, Gideon, and Jephthah had proven effective during their reigns, but no one could seem to quell the suffering that was being brought upon these great people.

Many enemies had come against Israel: the Midianites, Egyptians, Kushites, and Canaanites, to name a few. All enemies were mighty, but none was a match for the judges! These special men and women were skilled in warfare and strategy once the Spirit of the Lord fell upon them. Ordinary shepherds, farmers and priests now could command the respect of whole tribes while also striking fear in the hearts of their enemies.

A vicious new enemy from the north, the Philistines, seized control of the Promised Land, or what is now known as Israel and the Gaza Strip; lay in the hands of the vicious Philistines. Little is known about them, but they had previous skirmishes with the father of Israel, Abraham. During the Israelites’ forty-year stint in the wilderness, the Philistines seized control of the land as well as all they felt belonged to them. What made them such a powerful enemy was their use of iron weapons. This was something foreign to the Israelites, who used bronze as well as makeshift weapons, which included slings, plowshares, and other farming tools. The era of the judges was a dark period for the Israelites of about three hundred years. As the book of Judges states, “Each man did what was right in his own eyes.” This means that the old adage “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” applied, and it was strictly enforced.

With this law serving as the backdrop to the lives of the men and women of Israel, times were truly chaotic. Many of the Hebrew tribes turned their backs on Yahweh and began to worship false gods, such as Dagon, a horrid half fish, half man that required his servants to perform child sacrifices and give in to group orgies and drunkenness. Despite their disobedience and contempt for the Lord, the great Jehovah would always listen to his people when they called out for help. He would always raise up mighty warriors and leaders to protect and save his people from violent occupation and the oppressors put before them. This is where our story begins.

Chapter 1
How the Mighty Have Fallen

Deep in the tunnels of a pristine stone palace lies the belly of filth and sewage. We are taken down to a stone-hewn cell where a dark-skinned, statuesque man slowly grinds away at a mill. Step by step, in a slow yet rhythmic pace, he marches to an unknown beat. He is in tears, and he is physically, mentally, and emotionally broken. To look upon this man who is bruised, battered, and beaten is to look upon a portrait of pain.

This is a true sight of pity, but how did it all come to this? This is no place for a man. Many would say this is a true representation of hell on Earth. Excommunicated from his people, Samson’s only crime is loving all the wrong things in life: sex, women, food, and drink. It is truly the smallest blade that cuts the deepest. It slips quietly against the bones and slowly strips its victim of life. He once walked in pride and was a person to be feared; with each step he took, authority was given to him. He was the weapon of God that would inspire his people to cast off the reins of oppression, but now his dignity has been stripped.

Above his cell his captors torment him, hurling feces, urine, and rotten food at him. He is forced to grind away day to day for hours at a time. His punishment is so severe, it seems as though the creator of the universe has turned his back on him. Could this be? Is all hope lost? His fabled strength is now gone. There are empty sockets covered with scar tissue where his radiant brown eyes used to be.

Two of the guards positioned above Samson quarrel over who now has claim to his garments, coins, and belongings. Slightly stoic in appearance the two guards converse with one another, asking, “How has it come to this? He escaped so many of our traps before. Is the God of Israel not the God of the same people who were delivered from the hands of the Egyptians and others before us?”

“Who cares? I sure as hell don’t. Ha ha! Look at the Hebrew scum now. I piss on his God. I spit on his God. Dagon has delivered the Hebrew into our hands, and now Samson’s people have no protection. We will ravage all their women, and their land will once again be ours. It’s like the general said: ‘And now that Samson is ours, we will, run him through, but before the light disappears from him we will take delight in knowing that he failed his people.’ Ha ha!”

“Do you hear that, Samson? You and all your people will be dead a week from today. Let’s go, they said to one another. We have much work to do.” Samson was living his own private hell, seeing himself reduced to menial and degrading labor was almost as cruel as the deepest and most inner parts of Sheol. The Lord’s champion was now rendered helpless in defending himself and Israel was once again without a leader.

BPI Interview Feature: Liliom Press Indie Author and Blogger Mandi Konesni @MandiKauthor



Welcome to the L.O.V.E. blog! Today we'll be chatting with author and blogger Mandi Konesni about her life in the literary field. Enjoy!

Q: Thank you Mandi for chatting with us today. Can you start by telling our readers a little about your writing routine? How do you start writing a new book?

A: Hello, and thanks for having me! I love to write, but sometimes it seems like there aren't enough hours in the day. I'm one of those 'day dreamers', my mind is constantly wandering, which helps immensely. A lot of times I'll see something while out, or catch a glimpse of a book cover, and random plot points start forming. Lately I've written the most during NanoWriMo. The fast, hectic pace manages to keep me focused and on task.

To start a book, I'll usually come up with some plot point I'm interested in, and build an outline around it. If I'm a little stuck, I run my half-planned idea by my best friend. She's amazing at pinpointing possible issues and tweaking things until it makes so much more sense to me.

Then, I lurk on http://www.fantasynamegenerators.com for a few hours... okay, days. Seriously, this site is such a good resource! You can find name generators for pretty much anything there, so you'll get lost for days creating towns, cities, worlds, characters, etc. Once I've got all my information, I pop on my headphones and dive in. For some reason, I cannot write to anything other than Fleetwood Mac. I have no idea why... I'm a rocker girl!

Q: That's awesome! We've heard from a lot of authors that they use music to keep their writing flow going. You also have some companionship when you're working in your "ornery bassle pup?"

A: As all pet owners know, the furry ones run our lives. Mine is the most spoiled mama's girl in existence. When I'm sitting down writing, she's attached to my hip. Literally. If I get up, she follows. My schedule is dictated by her schedule... she has a very hectic napping regime. Being part basset and part beagle, she's got the tenacious personality and stubbornness from both. If Molly says I'm done writing because it's bedtime, well, it's bedtime whether I'm tired or not. We had a cancer scare 3 years ago, a mammary tumor. I scraped up every penny I could to get it taken care of. She's my baby, it's the only thing I could do. So her dictating my life is welcome, because she's still here and healthy. I'm happy to work around her. :)

Q: We're so glad that Molly is still here and still healthy. You have a few things listed on your site that you do other than writing. Can you tell us a little bit about them?

A: I'm kind of a rebel, in a way. If someone tells me that I can't do something, it just makes me that much more determined to prove them wrong. When I was a teen, a lot of people I knew had skin allergies, but said there wasn't anything they could do about it. So I learned how to make soap and lotions, and tailored them to what people could use. When I wanted to start my own jewelry-making business, everyone told me I had no idea what I was doing, and was too young to start something like that. I incorporated it into the soap making, and started making custom items for friends and family.

When Facebook started its "real name or else" campaign, a lot of friends of mine were losing years of writing work each time they got nuked. I had no idea how to code or run a social network, but I worked my tail off and started http://www.roleplaylives.net for my roleplaying friends 4 years ago. It's now an invite-only home to over 5500 writers, and growing. Everyone I talked to told me I couldn't do it, which just pushed me forward. Now, I build my own sites, can set up servers and databases, and handle most issues easily.

Looking back, nearly everything I've done has been because someone else told me I couldn't. If you have a dream, don't let anyone else stomp it down. You are the only one in charge of your life and your goals, and others can either help you, support you, or step aside and get out of your way. If you end up tweaking your goals as you work on them, you're the one that gets to decide that, nobody else. I never expected to be running a social network, but life happens. We're just along for the crazy ride.

Q: We love it and we wish you continued success with your social network! I also saw in your bio that you're into gemstones. (me, too!!) Tell us a little about that please.

A: I was kind of a nerdy kid growing up. My parents instilled in us a healthy curiosity of the world around us, and encouraged us to explore when it came to things like science, reading, etc. Growing up, I collected rocks just because they were pretty, but after awhile, I started learning more about the properties of them. I learned people used gems and minerals for crystal healing, and that was it... off I went. Being Pagan, it really helped solidify my ideals, that all of nature works together in balance, and everything has its own energy signature.

I really tried to learn what each individual stone was said to do, and how to blend different stones for different meanings. It's still my nerdy hobby, honestly. I love making custom bracelets and things for people. I've been banned from buying any more gemstone beads until I use up some of what I have, since it's reaching the point where I may end up on an episode of Hoarders. I just can't resist a pretty bead!

When I was younger, I actually wrote a gemstone healing guide, with different correspondences for each stone. Even though I don't advertise it much since I wrote it so long ago, I'm still pretty proud of it. I use it all the time when creating new things.

Q: We'll take some beads off your hands if you ever decide to part with them. LOL :-) How can readers keep in touch with you or get to know more about your books and hobbies? 

I'm currently working on revamping the blog section of my main site, but most everything is linked from there.

BPI Interview Feature: USA Today Best Selling Author Sylvia McDaniel @SylviaJMcDaniel #Romance



Hello everyone! Recently we took some time out to chat with USA Today bestselling author Sylvia McDaniel about her life as an author. Read on to learn more about her interesting career and her bestselling books.

Q: Welcome to the L.O.V.E. blog Sylvia! We appreciate you taking the time to chat with our readers. Can you tell us a little bit about your experience with writing your first book? 

A: I loved to read and after reading a very bad romance, I decided to try to write one. It was horrible, but I loved writing. So I joined RWA and started to learn about writing. It took me five years to sell that first book.

Q: We saw on your website that you have 2 doggies at home that you love very much. Are they still doing well? 

A: OMG! Yes, we have Zeus and Ashley. Zeus is a gorgeous red long hair with a personality that demands lots of attention and snuggles. Ashley is our older dog who is sweet and shy.

Q: That's adorable! We're so glad they're doing well. Our readers should know that you write in the Romance genre. In that genre, what's your favorite type of story to write?

A: I love to write secret babies or reunion stories.

Q: Secret baby stories sound really interesting. The drama! What is it like to be a member of the Romance writers community and any organizations where you have membership?

A: Since I just moved eight hundred miles and live in remote Colorado, I no longer have a writers organization close at hand. But I’m going to join a Denver chapter and also some non-romance writers groups in the area. I find local writers groups in the Dallas area to be very warm, welcoming organizations.

Q: That's awesome! Well, we hope that you have great success with the new chapter and with your writing career in the future. How can readers keep in touch with you or get to know more about your books?

An Inspector, An Exorcist, and A Bishop - Horror Mystery By Brian O'Hare @brianohare26


"The Coven Murders"
(Inspector Sheehan Mysteries Book 3)

Author Brian O'Hare

Click image to view on Amazon

"...someone is systematically killing the members of the coven. This is not your traditional police procedural."
-Glynn Young, Vine Voice (Amazon)

The Coven Murders opens with a horrifying account of a ritual Black Mass with a human sacrifice in an abandoned church. Twenty-one years later, near an old ruined church in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Chief Inspector Sheehan and his team discover the skeleton of a young woman. But what seems initially to be a straightforward case, brings the team into conflict with a powerful Satanist who has plans to offer up to Satan another human sacrifice on the evening of the great Illuminati feast of Lughnasa.

Several murders occur, baffling the Inspector until he makes a connection between the modern murders and the twenty-one year old skeleton. The team’s pursuit of the murderer, and their determination to protect a young woman who is targeted by the coven, lead to a horrific climax in a hellish underground crypt where Sheehan and his team, supported by an exorcist and a bishop, attempt to do battle with the coven and a powerful demon of Baphomet, jeopardising not only their lives, but risking the wrath of Satan upon their immortal souls.

BPI Author Interview Feature: Award Winning Writer Brian O'Hare @brianohare26 #Mystery



Hello everyone! Recently we took some time out to chat with author Brian O'Hare about his life as a writer and retired college Director. Read on to learn more about his interesting career and his award winning books.

Q: Welcome to the L.O.V.E. blog Brian! Let's get started with getting our readers acquainted with you. We see that you hold several educational degrees, including a PhD.. What inspired you to seek a doctorate?

A: After I finished my Masters, I was talking to one of my lecturers. (I was a young teacher at the time studying part-time while I carried on with my job.) "I suppose you think you have learned it all now that you got a distinction in your Masters," she was saying. (This is not a boast; I say it to make a point.) My reply was, "The only thing I have learned over the past two years is that I know nothing about anything." "Oh, dear," she said. "The only thing that will satisfy that thirst is a PhD.."

It so happened that another lecturer from Northern Ireland and myself had been co-opted by the Department of Education to leave our jobs for a year to do research for them in colleges and training centres in Northern Ireland, the Midlands in England, North of France (Paris), south of France (Marseilles), Germany (Cologne) and in Holland (various cities ...small country). On my lecturer's advice, I was also able to use that research as a basis for my Ph.D. (During my year researching for the Dept. Ed., I discovered that colleges in particular were reluctant to take on board a new pedagogy that had been designed for the less able adolescents of post-school age.

Many books and circulars were sent to them, but their response in practical terms was abysmal. That lead me to write (after five years of study) a 100,000 word document entitled: Resistance to Change ...for which I was awarded a PhD..

Q: That's amazing! During your time at the college, did you ever work with students who were interest in writing fiction?

A: No, I didn't. That was never my area of expertise.

Q: Oh, okay. Well, you have done some extensive writing yourself, particularly in the Mystery and Police Procedural genres. Can readers find any elements of real cases in the novels that you've written?

A: No, apart from some sections in the the third volume of the Sheehan series (The Coven Murders) and the strange thing is that there is a massive, mass exorcism written in that book which is beyond belief. People will easily believe the rest of the fictional stuff in the book but they will probably scoff at that. Yet the entire scene, and its essential details, is based on one of many similar and factual experiences that a friend of mine (about whom I wrote a book: The Miracle Ship) has experienced, many times and almost word for word. He was the basis for a major character in the book.

Q: Wow! What an honor for your friend to be featured in one of your books. Can you tell us about any awards that you've won as an author?

A. I originally wrote academic books, biographies and a memoir. My first foray into fiction was an Irish Contemporary novel called Fallen Men which won an IDB Award in 2013 and Top Medallist honours for Contemporary Fiction in the New Apple 2015 Summer Awards.

The Miracle Ship won New Apple Top Medallist winner (Religious Non-fiction category), 2014 Awards

The Doom Murders, a detective story set in Belfast and the opening novel of the Inspector Sheehan Series, won an IDB Award, 2014, a New Apple Award 2014 (Mystery Category), and a bronze medal in the Readers Favourite 2015 Awards.

The second novel in the Sheehan Series, The 11:05 Murders, won the New Apple Outright Medal Honours Award for excellence in Crime Fiction and also a Pinnacle Excellence Award in 2016.

(The Coven Murders, third in the series, has only just been published, {end-Feb 2018] so no awards yet.)

Q: Congratulations on all of the awards! That's quite a list of accomplishments. Now that they know a little more about you, how can readers keep in touch with you or get to know more about your books?

A: The following sites contain info and my books (and a bit about me):

Click image to view on Amazon

"...tales full of magic and fantasy"
-Amazon Reviewer

In A THRONE FOR SISTERS (Book one), Sophia, 17, and her younger sister Kate, 15, are desperate to leave their horrific orphanage. Orphans, unwanted and unloved, they nonetheless dream of coming of age elsewhere, of finding a better life, even if that means living on the streets of the brutal city of Ashton.

Sophia and Kate, also best friends, have each other’s backs—and yet they want different things from life. Sophia, a romantic, more elegant, dreams of entering court and finding a noble to fall in love with. Kate, a fighter, dreams of mastering the sword, of battling dragons, and becoming a warrior. They are both united, though, by their secret, paranormal power to read other’s minds, their only saving grace in a world that seems bent to destroy them.

As they each embark on a quest and adventure their own ways, they struggle to survive. Faced with choices neither can imagine, their choices may propel them to the highest power—or plunge them to the lowest depths.

A THRONE FOR SISTERS is the first book in a dazzling new fantasy series rife with love, heartbreak, tragedy, action, magic, sorcery, fate and heart-pounding suspense. A page turner, it is filled with characters that will make you fall in love, and a world you will never forget.

"...full of drama with a lot of life lessons"
-The Book Diva, Amazon Reviewer

Born only months apart, Merci and Grayce Alexander were as close as sisters could get. With a father who thought the world of them, life was good. Until one day everything changed.

While Grayce got love and attention, Merci got all the hell, forcing her to leave home. She never looks back, putting the past behind her until … her sister shows up over a decade later begging for help, bringing all of the forgotten past with her. Merci wasn't the least bit prepared for what was about to happen next.

Merci realizes, she’s been a part of something much bigger than she'd ever imagined. Yea, every family has their secrets, hidden truths and ties but Merci had no idea she’d been born into the family that lies.

Author Pamela S. Thibodeaux

Click image to view on Amazon

"...good, rich, love story that leaves you thinking"
-Deb P., Amazon Reviewer

Set at the tail end of the Vietnam War era, Circles of Fate takes the reader from Fort Benning, Georgia to Thibodaux, Louisiana. A romantic saga, this gripping novel covers nearly twenty years in the lives of Shaunna Chatman and Todd Jameson. Constantly thrown together and torn apart by fate, the two are repeatedly forced to choose between love and duty, right and wrong, standing on faith or succumbing to the world’s viewpoint on life, love, marriage and fidelity. With intriguing twists and turns, fate brings together a cast of characters whose lives will forever be entwined. Through it all is the hand of God as He works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

-D. Andrews, Amazon Reviewer

Rae Lynne Grimes returns to Leeward, North Carolina to care for her dying grandfather. Together, they restore an old Harley and paint it pink for breast cancer awareness. Her grandfather succumbs before seeing it finished. Alone, Rae must face the town of Leeward who blame her for sending her stepbrother to prison, costing their high school football team one of their champions. 

Now, her fate lays in the hands of the man who orchestrated her rape and shame, former football captain and elected mayor, Todd Bryant. When she rescues Logan Birdsong from a canal, she starts to believe she can have the fairy tale but when she learns he is working for Todd, she tries to get as far from him as possible. She joins her friend’s dating club and that soon turns to disaster when her dates start turning up dead. 

Logan is just trying to keep his stepfather’s company from filing chapter 13. He has over-extended and needs the new spa and hotel Bryant plans to build to put the company back in the black. Prostitutes at business meetings and Todd’s attitude make Logan wary. He is torn between his affection for Rae and his need to protect his stepdad's company.
When he becomes a murder suspect, that choice becomes easier.

Together Rae and Logan must prove their innocence, but they must stay alive to do it. Thrust together, they soon give in to their desires but someone doesn’t want them to have their happy ending.

Author AJ Nuest

Click image to view on Amazon

An Eye for an Eye
As owner of Dirty Deeds, a tech-savvy company specializing in the age-old art of revenge, Eden Smith knows first-hand that secrecy is critical. But when a dead body washes up on the shores of Lake Michigan clutching her business card, Eden’s well-constructed world begins to fall apart. Apparently, she’s not the only one with a passion for payback, and staying alive to outsmart a killer has become her most important job of all.

A Game for a Game
Hardened homicide detective Kelly Riordan is convinced Eden Smith is hiding more than she’s willing to admit. Years on the force have taught him that nothing is what it seems, and that couldn’t be truer than when it comes to investigating the alluring owner of a revenge-for-hire business. But revealing her past could put everything Eden has worked for in jeopardy. And trusting a man like Riordan goes against the very instincts that have kept her alive this long.
