About the Book:
ow_fcFor Angela Roberts, it is a tragedy that touches off her journey into the mysterious legend of her grandmother, Iana Hamilton. Grief-stricken and confused, Angela strives to learn more about her past, and soon she finds that Iana’s cryptic illustrations from years gone by can lead her closer to the truth.

Angela’s world quickly begins to spiral out of control as she has her own mysterious experiences, similar to those her grandmother had gone through. She seeks help in the safety of her friendships and her marriage, but not before her journey takes her into the sphere of terrorism, time travel, electromagnetic energy and sometimes even what some refer to as the paranormal.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
March 1902

Reginald and Margaret Hamilton were recognized within the business community and societal circles of Philadelphia as successful and abounding in God’s blessings for their lives. Reginald had climbed the ladder of success, achieving his fortune through hard work, perseverance and a steadfast belief in the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.The couple had an unwavering devotion and a deep, abiding faith in God, dutifully placing God first and then believing all else would fall into place. Now in their early forties, their station in life reflected this belief. Their deep spirituality and honorable work ethic was a testimony to the Bible verse Ephesians 3:20: He who is able to do exceedinglyabundantlyabove all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. They had been blessed far beyond their wildest dreams, except in one area of their lives.

Margaret Hamilton’s heart longed for the day when God would bless them with a child. Year after year, she had seen the best physicians Philadelphia and New York had to offer, each time being reassured and encouraged that physically she was capable of becoming pregnant and delivering a healthy baby. But as one year moved into the next, it seemed that this was not God’s plan for them, at least not in the customary way. The couple had discussed adoption from time to time, which now was looking to be their only option of ensuring their hearts’ desire of bringing a child into their family. Night after night, instead of praying for God to bless Margaret with a pregnancy, now their prayers were for God to lead them to the child that He had chosen for them—a child not only in need of a loving family, but one who was in need of help due to life’s trials and tribulations.

On the first of the New Year, Margaret scheduled a meeting with the Head Master at the prestigious Greenwich Adoption Agency in Philadelphia. And within a few days, the Hamiltons were approved and raring to go on their search for either a son or a daughter to complete their family.

By the end of the first week of meetings, Margaret and Reginald were introduced to a young girl from Egypt. She immediately captured their attention and soon would capture their hearts as well. Even though the Head Master found her to be well-behaved and quite pleasant, he strongly urged against adopting her due to her vague past and lack of family and medical history. At best, she was most likely the bastard child of a poor, uneducated woman who lived in a small, remote village near Cairo. And in his opinion, she wouldn’t be the ideal fit for an affluent couple such as themselves.

He went on to further explain that a few years earlier, during an excavation trip to Egypt, a group of archaeologists from the American Institute of Archaeology in Philadelphia found her among the ancient ruins of the Great Pyramids of Egypt. It had been reported to the Egyptian government officials that on that day, a bright fireball with a vapor trail possibly hundreds of kilometers long streaked across the sky at noon. Within seconds of seeing the first flash of light, the archaeologists watched as a second fireball streaked across the sky and exploded somewhere behind the smaller pyramid in the group. A shockwave resulted, launching sand and rubble (or meteorite fragments) through the air. Fearful for their lives, and thinking that the world was coming to an end or that the earth was about to open up and devour them, the archaeologists turned to run. Then, suddenly, amidst the flying debris and chaos, a small child emerged from behind the pyramid where they’d seen the second flash of light. No one in the group spoke a word as the men watched this small, delicate child take one unsure step after another until she emerged from the dust to stand directly in front of them. This solemn-faced child appeared exhausted and only a day—or even hours—away from dehydration and starvation. Her lifeless and tired eyes indicated to the group that she was possibly suffering from a past traumatic event. Her skin was dry, sun-scorched and cracked; her clothing was torn and filthy. In short, it was undeniable this small child had been alone in the desert for some time. However, with the village deserted, there was no way to confirm or deny their suspicions, and there was no way to track down her identity.

From Seat 42F by  ON NOVEMBER 25, 2014

Ruth-ConnellWhile new to American audiences, Ruth Connell is about to cast a spell a whole new fan base as she makes her big debut on SUPERNATURAL this season.  Briefly introduced in the episode “Soul Survivor,” Ruth returns in the upcoming November 25th episode entitled, “Girls, Girls, Girls.”  So look for her to stir up some trouble for the Winchester boys while turning few heads and perhaps turn up the heat in more ways than one.

In an exclusive interview, Ruth talked about how much fun it is working on the long-running adventure series that explores the dark side of Heaven and Hell.

What can you share about your particularly bewitching character on SUPERNATURAL?
RUTH:  I play Rowena and I can definitely tell you that she is a witch, and I don’t know what else I can say.  There is such a sense of mystery about the show and I am under such strong warnings about spoilers!  I will say that Tuesday’s episode has a great surprise in it and you may be seeing more of me after that. So that is about as much as I can say.

So what drew you to the role?  What interested you in it?
RUTH:  My friend actually emailed me the breakdown of the character and it had everything I was looking for in a role.  It just sounded incredible.  Rowena is feisty and she’s definitely nobody’s doormat.  She is a woman who knows what she wants.  I wish I had some her balls!

For you, what has been so far the most fun working on the show?
RUTH:  (Laughs) Honestly, everything about this job has just been a dream — from the casting process to appearing in scenes and that includes the gentleman that picks you up at the airport in Vancouver to the guy in craft services, Mike Campbell who is also of Scottish descent.  Everything about the job has just been so wonderful.  People talk about the SPN family and it really does feel like I’ve landed in something just wonderful.  It’s my first American TV show and I am completely aware of how lucky I am to have landed in the SPN family.  It is everything people would think it would be.  It’s just wonderful.

SUPERNATURAL is also known to be a boys’ club and they like to have a little fun and they pull pranks on each other.  Are they pulling you into the prank world yet?
RUTH:  I think they have been quite gentle with me so far.  I have seen Jared, Jensen, Mark and Misha on set and they just bring such amazing energy.  It is incredible to think they all have been doing [the show]and how fresh they are and how much fun energy they do bring.  They bring such a sense of enjoyment and naughtiness, I think.  (Laughs)  And they’ve got a twinkle in their eye.  It’s great fun.

What was it like working on your first episode of the show?
RUTH:  For my first episode, Jensen directed it and he is just the loveliest man. He is so kind and so patient.  It was an amazing first experience working on SUPERNATURAL and it was great to be directed by him.  I had been watching as many episodes of SUPERNATURAL that I possibly could, and then when I got there, he is so boyish and so young in real life.  I was like, “Oh my goodness!  How am I supposed to do this show with him?!”  He is so youthful and looks so young!

They all clearly have so much fun on the show and that probably helps keep their youthfulness alive in them a bit.
RUTH: Yeah.  They are all great friends in real life.  Though I have to say, it comes from higher up than that.  Everyone I’ve met on the show has a real sense of enjoyment.  I was also lucky enough to be invited to the 200th episode party that they had in Vancouver and that was amazing.  I ended up dancing barefoot with Felicia Day.  I keep pinching myself.  I am so lucky to be in the show and to have the warm reception that I had from everyone.  It is amazing.

Working on a show like SUPERNATURAL, they have really outrageous characters and stories.  Does that kind of throw you for a loop or do you just kind of roll with it?
RUTH:  The second script I got, I was working with Bob Singer on set and I was like, “I can’t believe what I’ve got to say in the next episode!”  I felt like I had a good idea of what was the character, then they surprised me.  I have something quite outrageous to say in the episode coming up.  I was thrilled.  I’ve done a lot of theater and the more extreme the character, the better.  That’s where I’m most comfortable.  And I was shocked.  I can’t wait to see how the fans react to a couple of things that are said and done by my character.

Sounds like it is a dream come true for you to play a character that is so completely different than who you are.
RUTH:  Yeah, definitely.  Last year, I did a play in L.A.  with Noah Wyle and Daniel Henning.  I ended up playing Mrs. Darling and Captain Hook.  Captain Hook is the most outrageous character that there is and to be a woman playing that, it was another amazing experience.  I think playing that kind of role definitely prepared me for Rowena and the flavor and essence of SUPERNATURAL.  It is larger than life and epic and fun all at the same time.

Gosh, do you ever get worried when you get cast in this characters, “What do they see in me that is not really there?”
RUTH:  (Laughs) Yes!  What are they seeing?  Is it a diabolicalness? But I definitely think I have caches of fun that I bring and I think it is interesting to go to really dark places. So I think that suits SUPERNATURAL really well.  There is plenty of serious stuff, but they always keep their tongue in their cheek.  That really appeals to me.  Even the style of the show, I thought to myself, “This is so up my alley.”

So you hope to be playing Rowena for some time to come.  Sounds like a fun role for you.
RUTH:  I would happily go on and on and on if they would have me.  As an actor, I look to people like Tommy Flanagan — who is another Scottish actor  — and that’s kind of why I got into the business and what I dream to do in that style of movie and roles — to do something completely opposite, a real contrast.

If you could sit down with Rowena, what would you like to tell her?  What kind of advice would you give her?
RUTH:  You know what?  I think she’s pretty sorted.  I wish I had some of her confidence and her balls.  There is a saying in Scotland, “keep the heid.”  It’s like, “keep your head screwed on.”  That might be my one piece of advice to Rowena.

How would you generally describe what is coming up for Rowena on the show?
RUTH:  I would say quite a bit of surprise.  It was a surprise to me.  There’s definitely scope for Rowena to impact more than one of the main characters. Her actions definitely have a long range effect.

Is it even possible to think that she may have a romantic interest, or is that the farthest thing from her mind?
RUTH:  (Laughs) I’ve read some of the fan stuff.  The fans are amazingly perceptive, like the clips for the episode where I was introduced — all the stuff about the entity inside me and there was an orange rose in the vase — and I was like, “Wow!”  I had been so busy concentrating on not knocking my glass of whiskey over.  So they noticed more than I did and I was on the set!  So, you know, Rowena is a woman. She could be open. So she might be open to some male admiration.

Cursed Man pubIs SUPERNATURAL the only thing you are working on at the moment or is there something else you’re working on?
RUTH:  I just shot a DOGMA-style movie a couple of weeks ago, called “Hara-Kiri” with a friend of mine, Henry Alberto, who was in a play I did last year.  That is opposite in the spectrum.  No make-up, no lighting.  It’s got a serious subject matter.  It’s interesting because I discovered a bottle of vodka on set and you can use what the character would use and by the forth take the vodka was influencing my acting.  So that was a learning curve.  (Laughs)  And I did another film at the beginning of the year called “The Cursed Man,” from an occult novel (by Keith Rommel) and that is in post right now.  I also do quite a bit of voice-over work as well.  I can voice-match and I’m not allowed to say what individual characters I do, but there’s one character that is so full of life and she’s great fun to do.  That was my first really cool job in America.  It’s fun to be in America and be able to use my own voice, which is an unexpected treat.  It is so great that it happening more and more.

Sounds like you’ve had a busy year and hopefully we will see more of you this next year too.
RUTH:  Yeah, I’ve been working hard for a long time in the business and I’ve nearly been there to break-out a few times.  Like I was cast as a series regular in London before I came here and then the show didn’t go.  So I came here and I knew one person in L.A. and I’ve kind of done it from scratch.  So it hasn’t been too fast.  It’s been a couple years.  But I’ve been working hard.  I’ve actually  been on stage since I was 4 years old.  So now everything seems to be rolling out and I’m so ready for it — and so grateful for it and relishing it because I know the other side of it.  I know what is is like to be nearly there and it is not quite happening.  So to be in a show like SUPERNATURAL, with such an amazing following around the world, it is everything I could have hoped for.  I’m also going to my first SUPERNATURAL convention and so I’m going to meet the fans face-to-face next year.  I’m excited about that.  It will be fun.

To see just who Rowena may be tempting and torturing this week, be sure to tune for an all new episode of SUPERNATURAL on Tuesday, November 25th at 9:00 p.m. on the CW.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.Sunbury Press has released Ken Newman’s latest novel The Voice in my Ear, about a man who is saved from death by a supernatural woman who then involves herself in his life.

tvime_fcAbout the Book:
Mere moments from a gruesome death, Zack Cole makes a deal with a mysterious stranger. To live, Zack reluctantly becomes the guardian of Layla, an exotic woman struggling under a terrible curse.

Despite a rocky start, Layla discovers an intimacy and passion with the cocky, womanizing Zack that transcends her dreadful curse. Determined that Zack will be hers, Layla uses her vast power to help him solve the mysteries surrounding his attempted murder, unaware that Zack is the target of a vicious band of outcasts on a deadly mission for God.

Without warning, the passenger-side door opened and a thoroughly soaked man plopped down on the seat.

“Who the hell do you think you are!” screamed the professor as his composure shattered. “Get out of my car before I have you arrested!”

Dressed in a pea coat and jeans, the slim, dark haired stranger gave the irate professor a warm smile and closed the door.

“Good weather for ducks. This thing have a heater?”

“Get out!”

Snarling, the old man balled up a pair of boney, liver-spotted fists, which had not seen combat since a humiliating defeat at the hands of a bully named Rebecca back in 1951.

The show of force made the stranger smile.

“Calm down, Professor Somerton, before you have a heart attack or something. I don’t want to get into a throw down with you; I merely want a smidgen of your time.”

“If you are one of my students trying to appeal a poor grade, you have just picked one hell of a wrong time! Congratulations, moron, you have just failed my class. In fact, I will have you expelled!”

“Not a student. Just a huge fan of your work.”

“A fan … of my work?” The professor slowly dropped his guard.

“You betcha. I read all five of your books from, THEY LIVE AMONG US, to WAS HITLER AN ALIEN?

Irritated at the intrusion and not in the mood for a conversation, Professor Somerton nonetheless managed a small smile.

“You read my books, young man?”

“From cover to cover.”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t catch the name.”

“Sorry, Professor. My name is Rex Brock.”

“While it is nice to meet someone who appreciates my work, you will have to excuse me. I am late to a very important meeting. Stop by my office tomorrow, and I will be happy to sign an autograph or pose for a photograph. Good day, Mr. Clock.”

“That’s Brock.”

“My apologies. Now if you will excuse me.”

“I am not here for a silly autograph or picture, Professor.”

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.Sunbury Press has released Keith Rommel’s latest novel “Among the People,” a supernatural thriller about a fallen angel in search of redemption.

atp_fc2About the Book:

After breaking one of Belial’s laws, Sardurvial, a fallen angel, discovers the terrible truth behind one of hell’s many secrets. He flees the false paradise and murderous companions, finding himself at the mercy of the people he once sought to destroy.

Kathy, injured and grieving, is approached separately by two mysterious people and is presented with a warning and a choice: save the injured man or let him die. Her decision to aid or ignore a stranger determines the course of her own fate.

Rommel weaves the supernatural struggles seamlessly with the human, internal struggles of loss and remorse, beautifully crafting the thrilling story of a demon, fallen from hell, who seeks shelter and redemption Among the People.


“Hello? Are you hurt?” she said, and her teeth chattered.

A grunt followed by the sound of something being dragged across the floor held her attention.

As of late, the stairwell had become a hangout for the local kids. But this night, the chill in the air was too bitter and the desperate tone of the voice made her believe whoever was down there was in trouble and in need of her help.

“I can hear you down there,” she said, her voice growing louder. “I’m going to call the police.”

Curiosity kept her still, but a sudden and intense sensation of danger told her to flee while she still had the chance. It was a similar feeling she had when the doctor started saying things about her husband he should never have known.

She resisted the urge and kept her focus on the stairwell below. Walking down a few steps, she remained cautious but determined to see what had conflicted her so, but it was no use. The darkness was too thick for her eyes to penetrate and it was too frightening and dangerous for her to get any closer.

“I’m leaving now,” she said, and waited a few moments. No further sounds could be heard. The tremors in her jaw seized and a sudden, powerful chill shook her body as if it were an encouraging shove to move on. She rubbed her hands together and folded her arms across her chest.

“Just debris being blown around by the wind,” she convinced herself, and started up the stairs again. When she reached the top step, she unlocked the lobby door and pulled it open.

“Please, I need your help,” a man said, but this time his voice was loud and near and somewhere close behind her.

Kathy gasped and turned to see a big man standing at the bottom of the stairs. He too was tall and slender. Tattered clothes hung off of his bruised and blood-smeared body. He swayed and his eyes were wide and desperate. She rushed to his side and struggled against her back pain to hold him upright.
