Description of Night of the Eleventh Sun by Steven Burgauer


The fossil record is unclear.
Did Neanderthal speak?
Did he laugh, have music, feel love?
Did he interact with Homo sapiens or get killed by him in mortal combat or get pushed to extinction on less marginal lands?
This book answers some of those questions in a carefully researched fictional setting.
Now meet Strong Arms, leader of the clan.

Predator species have spite hardwired into their behavior.
Killing the competition before it grows up is always a good genetic strategy for any meat-eater.
Now, take one that’s smart, adaptive, and a consummate tool-user, and you have the makings for a conflict of monumental proportions.
It’s man versus Neanderthal in the mountains of Iberia. Only one will survive.
You may be surprised by which.

Praise for Night of the Eleventh Sun by Steven Burgauer


“A marvelous blend of fact and fiction.  Much more could be said of this excellent piece of historical fiction, but suffice to say, it roundly deserves five stars for its unique ability to entertain as well as inform.  You will never look upon the cavemen in museum dioramas in quite the same way again.  Indeed, Burgauer’s vivid portrayal of day-to-day life back then — complete with bouts of anxiety, somnambulism, and even eroticism — make this novel breathe with an uncannily contemporary touch of reality.” — Publishers Daily Reviews

“A powerful, entertaining and thought-provoking novel, The Night of the Eleventh Sun, is a clear indication of Burgauer’s ability to bring a distinctive voice to multiple genres.  Deserving of a broad readership it is highly recommended.”  — BookViral

“ . . . a fascinating tale that takes readers deep into the prehistoric ages.  Steven Burgauer has a way of breathing life onto his pages.  His characters are three-dimensional.  Clans and their order of living, eating, as well as relationships were stunning.  I felt every emotion.” — Urban Book Reviews, Danielle Urban

Dispocalypse

In a post-apocalyptic world ruled by a Governor who is both feared and worshipped, Willow is a seventeen-year-old girl who is just trying to get through her last year of studies. But when her father dies, she experiences strange dreams that change everything about how she looks at the world and at herself.

Haunted by the tragedy, Willow begins pushing herself beyond anything she could have imagined she was capable of. It’s only when she catches the attention of some of the Governor’s minions that her world is turned upside-down.

“Michael Rothman is a writer with interests in many areas: from fantasy adventures to nail-biting science fiction thrillers.  As a result, his stories are like a roller coaster that carry you away into imaginative worlds where surprises abound, and the only thing that you can expect, is the unexpected.  So sit back and enjoy the ride!”-David Farland, New York Times Bestselling Author

Praise for Dispocalypse by Michael Rothman


“The duality of worlds was very interesting and it hooked me completely especially with the way Willow was made out in those scenes. The presence of a world we are familiar with and then another which had totally different geography and races drew me in slowly but steadily.
The world building was unique and it was a blend of dystopia and fantasy. I believe that was my favourite part of the book. It’s not usual that fantasy elements are introduced into a dystopian/apocalyptic tale. And it has more of a feel of the events happening after apocalypse so it was appropriately named too.

Overall,  the read was a great enjoyable one with ample fighting and adventures. I can recommend this to fantasy and dystopian lovers equally.”- Floryie, Travelogue Of a Book Addict

“I like how this book kept me guessing. It certainly didn’t expect the book to go to the places that it did. You think that one thing will happen, but the story surprises you and goes a totally different direction. The lack of predictability was quite refreshing.
The pacing in this was great! I was surprised how fast I was able to read this once I got started. Nothing seemed to drag. The flow was just perfect.  I highly recommend this book! It is one of the most unique stories that I have had the pleasure of reading. The meshing of genres really makes this one stand out.”- Vanessa [Queen Alchemy ], The Alchemy of Ink

I loved reading it, and can truly say it’s unique! I love how it’s written, and the wording/tone really drew me in. The prologue is somewhat confusing, and it took me a chapter or so to really understand what was happening, but it was a quick read, and easy to follow after that. I also enjoyed the illustrations, an added bonus in any story!

“I loved the characters, and felt the plot was unique, and well thought out. I enjoyed the quick pace, and read a large portion of the book in one sitting!
For this time this is a stand along, still I still have some questions, but I would love another book to answer them! XD (OK so I really just want to visit Willow’s world again!)”-Stephanie, Adventures Thru Wonderland

“Dispocalypse is a Shannara-esque post-apocalyptic return of magic tale, rich with prophecy, redolent with the stink of evil, and vibrant with the undaunted clamors of a young woman who will not allow her will to be constrained. It walks a delightful line between science fiction and fantasy and delivers a tale sure to please readers looking for unusual adventure fiction.”- Big Dave, Amazon Reviewer

About Michael RothmanDispocalypse by Michael Rothman


Michael Rothman  is an Army brat, a polyglot, and the first person in his family born in the United States. Given his first-born American status, hegrew up with English as his third language. As a child, he always had an active imagination and would continuously drive his family crazy with a myriad of “what if” questions.

After a while, they shoved him at the local public library and that’s when he was finally introduced to the world of books, and more specifically, science fiction and fantasy novels. His earliest influences were J.R.R. Tolkien’s classics as well as those of Isaac Asimov. Titles such as these tickled his imagination both as a child and into adulthood.

Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Travelling Through Shenandoah National Park by Jeff Alt and Hannah TuohyAdventures of Bubba Jones: Time Travelling Through Shenandoah National Park by Jeff Alt and Hannah Tuohy


Thanks to author, Jeff Alt, I am giving away two print copies of Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Travelling Through Shenandoah National Park by Jeff Alt and Hannah Tuohy

Description of Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Travelling Through Shenandoah National Park by Jeff Alt and Hannah Tuohy


After Inheriting legendary time travel skills from their Papa Lewis, Tommy “Bubba Jones,” and his sister Jenny “Hug-a-Bug,” embark on a Shenandoah National Park adventure to solve a family mystery. From the moment they reach the park entrance, the excitement begins.

As they follow the clues, they travel back in time hundreds, thousands, and millions of years and come face to face with extinct creatures, endangered species, the areas first inhabitants, past presidents, former park residents, and some of the park founders. They travel deep down into mountain hollows, high up onto Talus mountain slopes, and discover more about the Shenandoah than they ever imagined. Explore the Shenandoah with Bubba Jones and family in a whole new way.”

Praise for Adventures of Bubba Jones: Time Travelling Through Shenandoah National Park by Jeff Alt and Hannah Tuohy


“In a book that begs to be read aloud to young children, Jeff Alt unveils the spirit (and spirits) of Shenandoah National Park. Kids are often fascinated with time travel, and Alt takes Bubba Jones, his sister, Jenny “Hug-A-Bug,” and their hiking family back in time to learn about geological events that shaped the mountains, discover how certain plants came to grow in the park, and marvel at the giant dinosaurs that once roamed the land. From moment to moment they never know what they will experience or who they may meet. Maybe it will be a chance to shake hands with Thomas Jefferson, jump into an ocean that no longer exists, or fish with Herbert Hoover. In addition, coded messages and a secret mission build anticipation for what will be revealed on the next page.”─Leonard M. Adkins, the author of The Appalachian Trail: A Visitor’s Companion and 50 Hikes in Northern Virginia

 “Jeff Alt’s new book The Adventures of Bubba Jones:  Time Traveling Through Shenandoah National Park, is a fun and educational paperback for children and adults to enjoy, whether gathered around a campfire or just pretending to be!  Alt weaves secret codes, historical time travel, strong family values, and adventure in an entertaining tale that promotes appreciation and respect for the great outdoors.  It’s a wonderful book to start before a trip to Shenandoah, and finish during late afternoons or evenings in the Park.   It would also make a superb classroom selection as preview to a field trip to Shenandoah National Park.”─Karen Higgs, Teacher and Author of Big Meadows: A Place in Shenandoah National Park
