The Burning World, by Isaac Marion

Warm Bodies      51VUY75hYgL

The Burning World is the sequel to Warm Bodies, and it continues with R struggling to fully embrace his humanity but being human is not easy and his memories of his past life are elusive at best. As with Warm Bodies, Isaac Marion’s prose and rich storytelling keep the reader engaged throughout.

Julie and Nora are more fully developed and M is reclusive, but on his way to being a more evolved zombie, while other zombies remain dazed and confused about this new life they are trying to reenter.

As if life for zombies and humans alike isn’t hard enough, enter the Axiom Corporation. These humans seem to be brain-washed minions who want to restore order to the world by any means possible. They are really creepy and dangerous.

The world becomes even more dangerous as reality sets in for R, Julie, M  and Nora and they decide to escape Axiom and head out into the unknown and fractured world.

The final installment to the series is The Living, due out soon I hope. As in Warm Bodies, Isaac’s imagined world seems to be a metaphor of our own world. We wander without knowing where we are going, or why. Our daily routines click in in a robotic way as we wait for that proverbial light bulb to illuminate, to answer the enduring questions: Why are we here and what’s it all about.

My book, Gallows Hill: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 2, which continues the story of the Investigative Paranormal Society of Bethberg, PA, is now available for pre-order for Kindle on Amazon! It will be released on Kindle on February 14!

You can find my book by either clicking on this link Gallows Hill , or you can simply go to Amazon and enter Charles F. French.

This is book 2 in what is now a 4 part series, and the focus in this novel is on Sam Sadlowski, a retried homicide detective. Each book in the series is focused on one of the main characters.  If that is a bit confusing, because originally there were 3 members of this society, it is explained in this novel.

I am finishing the formatting for the print book, and I will let you know when it is ready.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to the Friday edition of the Author Update where I share new releases and recent reviews for authors in the Cafe and bookstore.

The first author today with news is Balroop Singh with a new review for her poetry collection Emerging From Shadows.

About Emerging from Shadows poetry collection

From darkness into light, from despair onto the wider ways of hope…life oscillates between sunshine and shadows. Emerging from shadows is a choice, which lies dormant, which can be gently inspired by self-talk. Each poem in this book banks on the hope of emerging stronger, saner, positive and resilient. Each poem in this book would talk to you, revealing layers of enclosed emotions. Each poem would divulge a secret path that could lead you into the world of poise and serenity.

When turbulences hit, when shadows of life darken, when they come like unseen robbers, with muffled exterior, when they…
