MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Terry Ray’s latest novel GXM731 about the aliens who battle to protect the Earth.

About the Book:

Astronomers are now discovering Earth-like planets on a daily basis.  That we are alone in the universe is now a much bigger leap of faith than to accept that we are but one of countless races among the galaxies.

There are races more primitive than Earthlings and races far more advanced. The advanced races travel the universe.  They visit many galaxies, including the Milky Way.  They have been visiting Earth for a very long time.

To think that advanced races are grotesque beings with Neanderthal-like brains … bent upon killing other races in the universe, is to think as a child.  Along with sentience comes pathos – knowing of your own existence, and the agony and ecstasy that accompanies such knowledge.

The sentient races of the universe – Earthlings among them – ponder the origins of their existence and thus, God.  They love, hate, are bored, make love and war, lie, cheat, steal, create art, like to eat and sleep, play, dance, write stories, have pets and houses, tell jokes and laugh, mourn their dead, are curious and like to learn, are afraid sometimes, are lonely sometimes, like to sing.  They are afraid of death – and what comes after.

GXM731 is a space story of the real races of the universe, in all their glory and failings.

About the Author:
Terry Ray is a member of MUFON and is the author of “The Crossers” series published by Sunbury Press.

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Don Wulffson’s latest novel An American Hiroshimaabout a terrorist cell in Mexico bent on destroying America.

About the Book:

America was on the border of disaster. A slew of barbarous murders of illegal aliens in New Mexico has incited riots throughout much of the country and had brought the US and Mexico to the brink of war. Reporter Mike Isherwood, a bruised and bitter veteran of Iraq, was there to cover the bloody story—but the story he began to uncover  was far more complex and treacherous than anything he would have anticipated—the annihilation of America. As the countdown to disaster continued death by death, he moved through a maze of traitors, terrorists and CIA operatives. With all of the odds against him, only a lovely libidinous female deputy sheriff stood staunchly at his side.

Who were the good guys? Who were the bad guys? And who were the fall guys? Isherwood might well die trying to find out …

A portion of author proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

About the Author:
Don Wulffson is the author of dozens of novels including Soldier X (Viking, 2001), Point-Blank (Signet, 1987) and Aliens (Lowell House, 1996).

DETROIT — Sunbury Press has released The View from Four Foot Two, Judi Markowitz’s biography of her daughter Lindsay and her rare medical condition, Marshall-Smith Syndrome.

About the Book:

tvf4f2_fcThere are 30 million people around the world with syndromes you have never heard of — Weaver, Soto’s, Stickler, and Ehlers-Danlos just to name a few.  And, there are 30 million mothers who, like Judi Markowitz, were informed of the syndrome their baby was born with in words that sounded something like this:

“Your child is not normal.  Blah, blah, blah.  Your child will be different from all the other children.  Blah, blah, bah.  Those eyes you’re staring into right now belong to someone who’s damaged.  It is not your fault.  Or, maybe it is your fault.  Blah, blah, blah.  You have just delivered a functioning baby, but you have also delivered yourself a life sentence.”

Some mothers, like Judi, whose children were born with Marshall-Smith Syndrome, also heard these words:  “We have no record of a child with this syndrome living beyond the age of two.”

Sometimes these words are delivered with compassion and sorrow.  And sometimes they’re delivered no differently than a diagnosis of heartburn.

Judi’s first child, Lindsay, was born with Marshall-Smith Syndrome in 1979.  She can still hear the doctor’s words when she shut her eyes at night.  She did not completely understand them at the time.  She does now.  Denial has coalesced into reality with a brutal vengeance.  It affected her life and the life of every person she has ever known and loved.

This year, Judi decided it was time to share a mother’s story to celebrate the miracle of Lindsay and, hopefully, to allow every mother of a normal child never to take their miracles for granted.

About the Author:

Judi Markowitz has been teaching English for 27 years. She instructs 12th graders in the morning at Berkley High School and in the afternoon she teaches a Detroit Film class at CASA (Center for Advanced Studies and the Arts). It’s a consortium of six school districts.

She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education and a Masters Degree in Education Leadership from Wayne State University. Judi is married to Jeffrey Markowitz, her best friend. They live in Huntington Woods, Michigan and have four grown children Lindsay, Chad, Eli, Todd, and daughter-in-law, Chana Tova. They also have three beautiful grand-daughters. The View From Four Foot Two is Judi’s first published book.

POTTSVILLE, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Raven’s Run novelist Joseph Tarone’s latest novel “A Little Indiscretion.”

ald_fcAbout the Book:

What happens when a traveling salesman accidentally meets an attractive woman at the mall? Joe Tarone’s latest novel takes many unexpected twists.

Missy preceded Mark down the stairs.  At one point she stopped and turned to look at her son. She did not like what she saw. Mark looked diminished–shrunken–not at all like the vibrant 17 year-old that she knew. Only once before had she seen her son look like this.  That was years ago, when a pitch that he threw was knocked beyond the outfield fence and won the local Little League Championship for the opponents. It took a week or more for Mark to recover from that. This, she worried, might take longer.

Rick had been deeply hurt by the accusation of his son. He now waited for his family to join him in the kitchen. Sitting at the kitchen table, his elbows planted firmly on its surface, his bowed head resting in his cupped hands. When he heard the approach of Missy and Mark, he dropped his hands. An expectant look came over his doleful face. After having just considered the pitiful appearance of Mark, Missy was now doubly disturbed by the apprehensive look on Rick’s face. There was a hollow, almost helpless, ache in her chest. It was a foreboding feeling. She had to shake it, she knew that. She had to get her family to where it was only three days ago. It would take more than an apology from Mark, she feared. Something was happening that she didn’t understand.

About the Author:
Joe graduated from Penn State with a degree in Finance.  He lived in Philadelphia and eventually moved to Chester County to work for a small scientific instrument manufacturer which, shortly after his employment there,   was acquired by Hewlett Packard.  After several years in finance with HP, Joe made a major career change and became a Personnel Administrator.

His first book, Some Stones Shine, depicts a decade in his father’s life in the early 20th century.  In it, Tarone has succeeded in describing what life was like in a Coal Region family almost one hundred years ago.

His second book, The Mega-Bite Murders, although obviously a work of fiction, inhabits an environment built upon Joe’s background in the computer and human resource areas.

Caught Up In It, his third book, is a sequel to The Mega-Bite Murders. In it, two supernatural beings set out to eliminate greed in the world. Sometimes humorous, mostly serious, Caught Up In It, in it’s closing pages reveals something that could be a surprise to readers of The Mega-Bite Murders.

Upon his retirement from HP, Joe returned to Pennsylvania’s Schuylkill County where he continues to write.  He has served as an auditor in West Mahanoy Township, and as president of the Shenandoah Valley School Board.  He now lives in Raven Run, the anthracite mining village in which he grew up.
