ACTION / ADVENTURE – NEW APPLE OFFICIAL SELECTION
The Improbable Journeys of Billy Battles
by Ronald E. Yates
The Finding Billy Battles trilogy tells the amazing story of a man who is born in 1860 and who dies in 1960. In between Billy lives an improbable and staggering life of adventure, peril, transgression, and redemption. Then Billy mysteriously disappears. For several decades his family has no idea where he is or what he is doing.
Finally, with his life coming to an end, Billy resurfaces in an old soldiers’ home in Leavenworth, Kansas. It is there when he is 98 that he meets his 12-year-old great-grandson and bequeaths his journals and his other property to him — though he is not to receive them until he is much older.
What wonderful news and “Congratulate” Ron for this accomplishment. I just finished Book Two myself and will be placing my reviews very soon! Ron did an exceptional job with his trilogy and I can not wait for the Book Three. Here is a wee bit more about Ron.

“Behind the Door” – the New Book from Writer A. Gavazzoni is More Than a Psychological Erotic Thriller, It’s the Perfect Blend of Mystery, Sensuality, and Intelligence.
New York, NY, July 06, 2016 –(PR.com)– “Behind The Door” brings to the table – or the chaise longue – mystery, romance, and humor, packed with high doses of eroticism.
A.Gavazzoni debuts with the page-turner, heart-racer book “Behind The Door.” This thriller novel is full of mystery with the death of Lara, a beautiful architect, at lawyer Mark’s hands during a sex game. For Mark’s defense – Carl – his defense attorney – hires Simone, a renowned psychiatrist specialist in sexual behavior, to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. Taboos are exposed, and the readers learn about Mark’s steamy yearlong affair with Lara, through his memoirs.
While studying Mark’s memoirs, Simone continues to treat her psychiatric patients and researching for her next book, while her attraction to the enigmatic lawyer increases. As the readers move from chapter to chapter, the normalcy in Simone’s life ends when a serial killer starts torturing and killing women in her town, and new details from Lara’s and Mark’s life unveil to show the readers this underground, not-so-talked-about lifestyle of the rich and influential people.
Many mind-twisting chapters and surprising detours lay ahead of the reader who chooses to adventure themselves into the world of “Behind The Door.”

NEW BOOK Release by Author, Diane Olsen and we welcome her to Lyon Book & Social Media Promotions! Her amazing book will have you looking at Religion and Human Creation in a much different and unique way her book:
‘Ancient Ways: The Roots of Religion’
About The Book:
“In order to enjoy this book, you may have to suspend current beliefs since some of the concepts may seem quite foreign at first. Hopefully, you will find precious gems to take with you.”
What if monotheism always existed, and revelations were given to all human forms. There are hints to that effect. We should not assume primitive peoples were not smart enough to grasp the concept of a single Creator!
Too often we tweak religion to reflect our personal thoughts, rather than dealing directly with the Word of God. Today monotheism is represented by at least nine living faiths, yet praying to God alone is not enough, for many. Instead, we pray to Prophets, angels, saints, ancestors, deities, and the universe.
This creates a chain of “Paths” and “Ways” which become stained by human desires for control and material benefits. And as darkness and materialism overtake one Faith, another is born, through the intervention of the Holy Spirit, clothed in a different form, with a new name, and very familiar teachings.
Monotheism can be visualized as a chain linking prehistory and history, entwined with human additions, wisps and twists that produce an undulating, ultimate Yin and Yang. This constant interaction of complementary, as well as conflicting, forces and energies, exhibits both organic unity and dynamism even war. Those who suspect there is a unified core of basic beliefs should enjoy “Ancient Way’s” . . . .
About The Author:
Diane Olsen, prolific writer and first-time indie author of her debut book release titled; “Ancient Ways:The Roots of Religion.” Her book is thought provoking and an informative look at the development and evolution of religion throughout time and a well-considered concept – the idea of a connective thread of monotheistic faith throughout the history from the birth of human creation.
