Mechanicsburg, PA — Sunbury Press, the trade publisher based in Pennsylvania, has released its list of top selling novels of all time:

  1. The Closer by Alan Mindell — R. A. Dickey was the first knuckleball pitcher to ever win a coveted Cy Young Award–despite spending most of his career in the minor leagues.  Terry Landers, also a knuckleballer, is Dickey`s fictional counterpart in The Closer.  The main difference, aside from winning the Cy Young, is that at age thirty-three, Terry has never played in the majors. Once he finally gets his chance, what follows is the heartwarming story of his impact both on the pitching mound and with a family in distress. “The Closer is an Award Winning book. Written with extraordinary compassion and deep attunement to the human psyche, Alan deftly defines the keys to a positive mind and winning the Game of Life. A book that is sure to change minds. Alan outlines the secrets to success pertinent in the life of each and every reader. Everyone wants to be a winner. From ‘Loser’ to ‘Closer’ – don’t put it down until you’ve reached the end!” — online reviewer.
  2. the 100th human by Chris Fenwick — December 2012 – The final day of the 5000 year old Mayan calendar nears. The world is in turmoil – as wars and international tensions continue. People everywhere seem lost in the complications of day to day struggles – poverty – misfortune – anger and greed. A small team of scientists have uncovered a riddle concerning this “End of Days”. As they reveal the symbolic meaning of the riddle, their serendipitous mission is discovered by the Ancient Fraternity of the Veni Victus – determined to thwart such revelations. These two powers – of good and evil – converge. Only the spirits of the ancients know the outcome. The 100th Human is a spiritual quest delving deeply into matters of physics, metaphysics, evolution and the human condition. Join Jack, Apu and Alana as they race against time searching for those who can assist in revealing the mystery of the ancient symbols – before time literally runs out. (THIS TITLE IS OUT OF PRINT)
  3. Winter of the Metal People by Dennis Herrick — The Untold Story of America’s First Indian War. The first named war between the Europeans and the Native Americans was the nearly forgotten Tiguex War, which Spaniards and their Mexican Indian allies fought in 1540-42 against the Pueblo Indians along the Rio Grande, between present-day Albuquerque and Santa Fe in New Mexico. This historical novel “Winter of the Metal People” presents the first account of the war written from the Puebloan point of view. It follows a young Pueblo warrior who reluctantly takes leadership of his people in a time of crisis, overcoming self-doubt to lead Puebloans in successful guerilla warfare against the Spaniards. Praise for Winter of the Metal People and author Dennis Herrick: “A riveting historical novel of immense scholarship and insight. Dennis Herrick makes the story of the first American Indians in the West to face the military might of European forces as vivid and real as if Coronado’s expedition had ridden out of Mexico yesterday. Winter of the Metal People will forever influence your perception of the stunning landscapes and rich cultures of the Southwest.”—Margaret Coel, author of Killing Custer
  4. The Sign of the Eagle by Jess Steven Hughes — This breathtaking historical novel of action and suspense is set in the year 71 A.D. amid the exotic and vibrant streets of Ancient Rome. Macha, the strong-willed daughter of a legendary Celtic British king and wife of the Roman tribune, Titus, is the only one who can prove her husband innocent of treason, solve the murders of two slaves who possessed information that could have exonerated Titus, and ultimately save the life of the Roman Emperor Vespasian. Vivacious and iron-willed, Macha undertakes a dangerous journey and fight for her life to evade assassins through the city’s treacherous back alleys, notorious bath houses, and the awe-inspiring palaces of the Roman elite. With time running out to save her husband and the emperor from certain death, Macha can count on only two allies, the esteemed Senator Bassus-a family friend-and her faithful slave, a resolute and clever Moorish woman, Shafer. Arrayed against Macha and Titus are the wealthy and wicked Pollia, once scorned as a bride by Titus, and Falco, a military tribune and womanizer, who offers to be Macha’s protector once Titus is condemned and executed. Join Macha in her quest to exonerate her husband…and discover the real threat against the Emperor…
  5. The Cursed Man by Keith Rommel — WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF DEATH FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU? Alister Kunkle believes death is in love with him.  A simple smile from friend or stranger is all it takes to encourage death to kill. With his family deceased and a path of destruction behind him, Alister sits inside a mental institution, sworn to silence and separated from the rest of the world, haunted by his inability to escape death’s preferential treatment. But when a beautiful psychologist arrives at the institution and starts offering him care, Alister braces himself for more killings. When none follow, he tries to figure out whether he truly is insane or if death has finally come to him in the form of a woman.   COMING SOON AS A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE.

Dr. Milo Lancaster Thornberry

Published Mar 16, 2017 at 03:52PM at http://www.bendbulletin.com/obituaries/5157549-151/dr-milo-lancaster-thornberry

November 19, 1937 – March 8, 2017

Dr. Milo Lancaster Thornberry passed away peacefully on March 8, 2017, at the age of 79, in Bend, OR. He was surrounded by family and embraced with loving arms at the time of his death.

He is survived by his wife, Connie Meugniot Thornberry of Bend; his children, Elizabeth Wayne Thornberry Maher of Granville, OH; Richard Lancaster Thornberry of New York City, NY; Katy Thornberry NcNulty of Atlanta, GA; grandchildren, Sean Milo Maher and Cassidy Wayne Maher; sister, Cynthia Ann Thornberry Richmond. His wife’s children, Wendi Lee Steele and Mark Lance Smith; grandchildren, Joshua Coburn Steele and Katie Rochell Smith.

Milo was born November 19, 1937, in Breckenridge, TX. He grew up on his family’s ranch outside of Clarendon, Hedley, then Wichita Falls. He received his pastoral license from the United Methodist Church at the age of 17. Milo received his B.A. in Religion from Texas Wesleyan University in 1959, his Master’s of Sacred Theology from Perkins School of Theology at SMU in 1962, and his Doctorate of Sacred Theology from Boston University School of Theology in 1974.

Milo served as a United Methodist Missionary to Taiwan from 1965-1971. He was assigned to teach Church history at Taiwan Theological College and Seminary. He became involved in human rights efforts during the era of Chiang Kai Sheik’s White Terror (1949-1987). Milo worked with political dissidents, including work with Amnesty International, the American Friends Service Committee, and most notably, included the planning and execution of the successful escape of former political prisoner and democracy activist, Dr. Peng Ming-Min. Milo and his family were deported back to the U.S. in 1971. Fireproof Moth: A Missionary in Taiwan’s White Terror was published by Sunbury Press in 2010. In 2016, he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from the Taiwan Theological College and Seminary.

From 1977-1992, Milo resided in Atlanta, GA, where he served as the Director of Alternatives, a non-profit organization that promoted simple living, and later taught at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.

In 1992, Milo was appointed to Juneau, AK, as pastor to Aldersgate United Methodist Church; in 1996, First United Methodist Church, Fairbanks, AK. He was appointed to First United Methodist Church in Bend, from 2001 until 2005, when he retired.

In retirement, he helped found High Desert Village in 2009. He wrote and blogged about current political and theological matters, began an unpublished novel, – Not Yet What We Shall Be in 2005. He also came out of retirement in 2007, for a temporary appointment to Chugiak United Methodist Church in Alaska.

Fishing was his favorite pastime. Travel, writing, wood working, photography were his hobbies, and the kinds of music that were his favorite were hymns, country, and opera. Never being one to take himself too seriously, he was quick with a joke, but he would start laughing toward the end of telling, everyone else as well, then the punchline. Milo was a kind and loving man for God, his family and friends.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at Bend United Methodist Church, 680 NW Bond St., Bend, OR 97701. The service will be followed by fellowship to exchange stories, photos, and memories of Milo. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and to Partners In Care of Bend, OR.

c-mw-laurelsHOLLYWOOD, CA — The first two books in Keith Rommel’s Thanatology series (Sunbury Press), The Cursed Man and The Lurking Man, have been adapted into feature films and have recently begun their festival runs. Rommel along with director/producer James L. Perry wrote the screenplay for The Cursed Man, and with executive producer Maritza Brikisak for The Lurking Man. Each film took top awards for their screenplay. Now the powerful stories and acting are turning heads. To date, the two films and the novels combined have garnished 60+ awards,  the start of what could be truly spectacular. The film festivals continue throughout most of the year, bringing with them many opportunities. Having won ‘Best Book of the Year’, ‘Best Feature Screenplay’, ‘Best Ensemble’, ‘Best Narrative Feature Film(s)’ and wins in many other categories, the films are a direct reflection of the full length novels and are gaining much attention.

lm_with-laurelsRommel with Frank Krueger, Maritza Brikisak and Felix Martiz is getting ready to bring the third book in the series, The Sinful Man to the big screen. It is yet another powerhouse filled with emotion, psychological terror and reflections on your everyday decisions. Reviewers have called Rommel’s writing, “Horror for the curious mind” and “Thinking man’s fiction.”  This is going to be the most ambitious rendition to date.
