charles french words reading and writing


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.

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…

The Women in the Castle


The author, Jessica Shattuck, offers us a rare glimpse into the mindsets of 3 different German women and how they dealt with the onset of Hitler’s war, propaganda and the aftermath of the war. Finely researched and masterfully told, this is one of the best novels regarding women’s role and the role of the average, ordinary German. Hitler’s takeover was incrementally insidious as he divided the people into groups and and touted those of ‘true’ Germanic blood. Many, if not most Germans turned a blind eye to what was happening to those scapegoated by Hitler, to those sent to the gas chambers. They did not want to see what was happening in front of them. By the time ordinary Germans were confronted by the horrors of the war, it was too late.
Bringing this down to the most basic level, it is about judging others and about ill conceived prejudices. Something we should be mindful of today.
