Book Release: IN HERSCHEL’S WAKE

Happiest of release days to Michael Wohl, author of In Herschel’s Wake.

Nab your copy of In Herschel’s Wake here, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore!

Like father like son… Like it or not!

HERSCHEL WOHL WAS MANY THINGS: twice-divorced astrologer, pharmacology professor, failed novelist, on-the-lam drug-runner, manual typewriter thief, Aikido white belt, possible communist, and temporary resident of the little-known island of Statia. He was also a father.

When Herschel dies unexpectedly just before his 71st birthday, his adult son Michael has to travel four thousand miles and overcome four decades of filial resentment to pick up Herschel’s pieces. Along the way Michael must reconnect with a forgotten half-brother, reconcile with an overeducated, underachieving sister, and reckon with his ambivalence about religion.

With no modern funerary services available on the tiny island, the three estranged siblings are left to bury their enigmatic patriarch by themselves, and by hand. As one day stretches into three and they wonder if they’ll ever get the bastard in the ground, they are forced to confront their complicated relationships, not only with their charismatic but irresponsible father, but also—and perhaps more importantly—with each other.

In Herschel’s Wake is a darkly funny examination of faith, funerals, family, and f*cked up fathers, but most of all, it’s about forgiveness.

Book Release: STOP THE ROAD

Happy release day to Evans Paull, author of Stop the Road: Stories from the Trenches of Baltimore’s Road Wars. Stop the Road is an up-close-and-personal account of Baltimore’s 40-year battle over expressway plans. Meet the unsung heroes, a ragtag band of neighborhood activists, preservationists, and environmentalists who saved Baltimore from its own leadership, thereby protecting Baltimore’s historic waterfront communities of Federal Hill, Fell’s Point, and Canton. But that glorious and unlikely win must be tempered with the equally compelling but inglorious story behind the disastrous Highway to Nowhere. This is Baltimore unmasked and laid threadbare for the most momentous decisions since the building of the B&O Railroad.

Stop the Road is available worldwide! Click here to snag your copy, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore.

Stop the Road has already hit #1 bestseller status in THREE categories on Amazon, and reviewer feedback is pouring in:

“Paull’s surgical dissection of the 40-year battle produces a book that is essential for understanding today’s Baltimore.”

Antero Pietila, author, Not in My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City

“It was people, not politicians, who stood up and saved Baltimore from the ravages of the East-West Expressway. Evans Paull has found many of these courageous people, the folks who resisted, persisted, and finally prevailed. He has made their ‘highway stories’ a compelling human history of the challenges that faced post-war urban America.” 

Mark Reutter, Senior Editor, Baltimore Brew

“If you think about the things that have really changed the face of Baltimore as we know it today, to me there is nothing more important than the road wars.”

C. William Struever, Baltimore developer and urban strategist

PRAISE FOR BIKE RIDING IN KABUL

Bike Riding in Kabul by Jamie Bowman was released less than a month ago, but already praise has been pouring in from reviewers. Bike Riding in Kabul held the #1 bestseller spot in International Law on Amazon for three weeks steady, and it’s incredible to see such a quick and positive response from these first readers.

Grab your copy of Bike Riding in Kabul here, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore!

I received an ARC of Bike Riding in Kabul: The Global Adventures of a Foreign Aid Practitioner, and as soon as it was published, I bought copies for my sister, nephew, and niece. Then, I wrote to my cousin, who bought her own copy. What can I say? I enjoyed the book that much. Sparing us the confusing alphabet soup of agency anacronyms, Jamie Bowman’s book gives us a peek into the workings of the US’s international development efforts in post-conflict and emerging markets. Her stories are informative, well-written, and most of all, entertaining. As a bonus, we get a glimpse of countries most of us will never visit. Through Ms. Bowman’s telling, I can almost see the crush of traffic in Moscow, the red dirt roads of Juba, South Sudan, and the breathtaking beauty of Panjshir, Afghanistan. Well done, Ms. Bowman. I hope you are writing a sequel.

–Amazon reviewer

Bike Riding in Kabul is a wonderfully unique book. An intelligent memoir written to be as enjoyable and fast-paced as a novel, the author worked for government foreign aid organizations in developing countries. For those who like to travel, to read about travel, are interested in world affairs or who are just curious, it is interesting and sometimes, yes, troubling. These are countries most people will never visit. Cultural and political challenges are highlighted and explained, as are personal relationships, good and not as good. Through it all, author Jamie Bowman shows an enjoyable sense of humor, a human side and her love of country. I highly recommend!

–Amazon Reviewer

I have an insatiable need to learn and explore but am now limited by age, time, and resources so I appease my desires by reading the travails of others. From the safety and comfort of my home, I can vicariously live the lives of others. I don’t have to arrange flights and hotels, pack, rub elbows with other passengers, hunt for transport, or do anything else that goes with foreign travel, which in my elder years, have become more daunting than exciting.

Jamie’s writing not only takes me with her, I also feel her emotions as she conveys humor, angst, love, fear, confusion, and sometimes frustration in response to events, places, and people. Plus she explains her role and some of the challenges she faces in a manner I can easily understand.

Jamie has provided me with the excitement of exploration and insight in revealing a world I didn’t realize existed — helping other countries with their growth and humanity through home and business ownership — something so many of us take for granted or simply dismiss.

Jamie’s telling of her escapades leave me wanting more — more about the people she meets, the towns she explores, the accommodations she endures, the food and drink she consumes, the weather she endures, the bugs — all of it. Her writing pulled me from one page to the next, from one chapter to the next, and from one country to the next. I so look forward to her next book.

–Amazon reviewer

What a pleasure to read a book by a literate and intelligent author writing on a topic that I knew little about. This account of a lawyer skilled in finance and government who lends her expertise to countries establishing themselves as democracies on the international stage was a clear-eyed story of risk and rewards.

I was impressed with the author’s ability to handle complex legal issues in countries without a background in Western law. It was fascinating to read about the challenges she faced in Kabul, Kosovo, Rwanda and Ukraine and how gracefully she handled them. Some of the difficulties were as a result of culture clash, some due to poverty and some came from facing corruption. Her descriptions were entertaining but not at the expense of her associates and never just to provide a few laughs. Wherever she went, she was open to new experiences and was always guided by high moral principals inculcated by her parents… I loved everything about this book but I was especially touched by how she kept her enthusiasm, her love for her country and her contribution in making the world a better place.

Cover Reveal: STOP THE ROAD

COVER REVEAL! Stop the Road: Stories from the Trenches of Baltimore’s Road Wars will be released worldwide on 10/01/22.

Stop the Road is a microcosm of a clash over values and ideas about cities and the transportation systems that provide the lifeblood of the urban economy. That Baltimore avoided committing “urbanicide” (a term coined by Baltimore Sun news columnist James Dilts) was a testament to the astonishing victory of a ragtag band of community activists, environmentalists, and preservationists that turned the tables on the economic and political establishment. They won three major expressway battles, eliminating two highways and rerouting a third, thereby saving the waterfront that later became the bedrock of Baltimore’s late-1900s revival. However, the lasting impact of the highways that were built through the city’s African American communities (including Baltimore’s infamous “Highway to Nowhere”) tells quite a different story. Here we see highway plans that reflected racial inequities and discriminatory practices deeply embedded in Baltimore’s history. This is a storyline that still resonates today, as the country faces up to a long-overdue reckoning over racial issues.

Enlivened by the up-close-and-personal stories of the Road Warriors (much of it gained from 53 interviews of those involved), Stop the Road charts a course that is engaging on a human-interest level. This is a story of Baltimore at its best and at its worst all at the same time; a story of the mob retaking “Mobtown”; a story of monumental struggle for the “Monumental City.”

“Paull’s surgical dissection of the 40-year battle produces a book that is essential for understanding today’s Baltimore—and the many other American cities which experienced similar highway wars.”
Antero Pietila, author of Not in My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City.

Stop the Road is an engrossing saga of Baltimore, not just because the events depicted are so significant for our city, but also because the history is enlivened by in person storytelling. You will marvel how this combination of community protectors, civil rights activists, preservationists, 1960’s idealists, and environmental advocates gained the upper hand over the road building establishment.”
M. J. (“Jay”) Brodie, former Baltimore Housing Commissioner and President of Baltimore Development Corporation.

“If you think about the things that have really changed the face of Baltimore as we know it today, to me there is nothing more important than the road wars.”
C. William Struever, Baltimore developer and urban strategist

Evans Paull is a retired city planner, living in northwest Baltimore with his wife, Rosemarie. He has three children and one grandchild. Paull’s career started in the Baltimore City Department of Planning where he worked with quite a few of the interviewees featured in this book (but he had no direct involvement in either transportation planning or the Road Wars). In mid-career he shifted from generalist planner to specializing in the redevelopment of brownfields (vacant former industrial or commercial properties, the reuse of which is complicated by contamination).  He started and managed Baltimore’s Brownfields Initiative; then went on to work on these same issues at a national level, working first for Northeast-Midwest Institute, later acting as Director of the National Brownfields Coalition, later still starting and running his consulting business, Redevelopment Economics. You can find previously published articles and papers on the Redevelopment Economics website. Paull has won a number of awards, including: Brownfields Leadership Award; Phoenix Award (for brownfields redevelopment); Governor’s Smart Growth Award; and Professional Achievement in Economic Development Award, Maryland Chapter American Planning Association.

Excerpt from Eddy Johnson, Book Dealer

Before heading back to my room, I decide to drop by the Dusty Jacket for a couple drinks. It’s kind of become my go-to spot since my truck blew up. I park out front and go in. The place is more lively than usual. I feel lucky to find a place at the bar, and quickly go sit there.

“Bunch of librarians in town for a convention,” Jack says, putting a Shiner Bock in front of me.

Librarians, I think. Cheerfully defacing books for centuries.

Congratulations to Susan Beth Miller on the publication of her novel, A Beautiful Land!

Each speaks in turn as they parse their tangled stories and consider whether they dare return to what once was home.

A Beautiful Land is available worldwide at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all major retailers as a paperback and e-book. (We recommend ordering it from your favorite local bookstore!

Praise for A Beautiful Land

Every genocide is unique, and yet the suffering and endurance of the survivors of each such outbreak of madness transcends both time and place. In A Beautiful Land, Susan Miller has rendered with exquisite compassion the struggles of those who have been exiled from their homes by the unspeakable violence of their former neighbors. Detail by detail, she follows their journeys as they attempt to carry on, to continue breathing, to continue loving, to comprehend what they have been through, to find a new home and perhaps even return to the old one. These characters and their stories are unforgettable.
—Eileen Pollack, author of The Professor of Immortality and Breaking and Entering


Throughout, Miller’s prose is crisp and powerful, with evocative imagery and metaphors that are often stunning … as she develops her expertly crafted characters, she beautifully and compellingly considers pressing human questions regarding evil, motherhood, and the possibility of redemption. A striking, searing work that will linger long in readers’ memories.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review), Best Indie Fiction List


Miller’s A Beautiful Land is rich in detail, often mythical in nature, timeless in relevance, and beautifully, thoughtfully, written. I feel as if I’ve been on a journey. She takes us into worlds we cannot see and reveals them. As with Indigo Rose, her ability to convey the human condition through character and events is as compelling as it is meaningful. I was drawn deeply into the story.
—James Meyer, author of These Fair Days


Susan Miller’s novel, A Beautiful Land, explores the lethal tension between rival ethnic groups and the resulting destroyed lives. With vivid prose and page-turning suspense, she follows the paths of Raissa and her son as they struggle to survive a deranged world in a mysterious forest and create a new family. Miller’s archetypal fable examines life after the worst has happened as the etched characters reinvent families, heal their humanity, and resurrect community.
—Ann Pearlman, author of the Pulitzer nominated Infidelity and The Christmas Cookie Clubseries


Susan Miller’s A Beautiful Land quickly bonded me with its truthful characters. I became enthralled by the sheer humanness of the heroine, Raissa. Susan Miller expresses a deep solidarity for the hardships her characters suffer, and Raissa shines throughout with an inner resiliency giving hope through whatever hardships life hands us.
—Doug Wheeler, host of the podcast From the Belly

Praise for LIES IN BONE

“The fantastic, fallible characters leap to life in these dialogue-filled pages and draw readers into an immersive world involving mysteries of missing children, mental illness and unsolved murders. A gripping tale of outcasts that keeps you guessing and, more importantly, caring how it will unspool. Mystic River meets Stranger Things in this engrossing debut novel.” —Lane DeGregory, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, The Girl in the Window

“A moody, hard-edged coming-of-age story that keeps the horrors coming until the very end.”—Kirkus Reviews

“…Fierce teen protagonist, Frances “Frank” Coolidge… impolite, foul-mouthed, self-mutilating and rebellious, and she’s loving, loyal and has backbone to spare; a female Steve McQueen, a young Sarah Conner; totally icon-worthy. A heart-stopping work of suspense fiction… a tour de force of friendship, love and redemption. Organically woven and expertly balanced, Lies in Bone lightens the load of its heavy subject matter with quirky northern town humor. Gritty, campy and dark wit and, especially, a keen grasp of family dysfunction and its many varieties, all add to Lies in Bone‘s hypnotically page-turning appeal…” —Julie Garisto, 83 Degrees Media

“Symons’s language crackles and sparks…”—Diane Chiddister, author of One More Day

“This extraordinary story…refused to leave my thoughts for even a moment until I reached its explosive conclusion. Lies in Bone is dark, tough and visceral, and it’s rich with twists, turns and breathless suspense—the very definition of a page-tuner.” —Bill DeYoung, St. Pete Catalyst

“Finally, a heroine of substance growing into her own magnificence, bearing witness to the unspeakable with bravery outpacing her years. A tale told with unapologetic realism and voice crafted with skill and humanity.” —Lori D. Shannon, author of Superwoman Died Tonight

“Dickensian in the best sense of the word, Lies in Bone is a novel that grabs the reader and does not let go.” —Paul Wilborn, author of Cigar City

“Gripping and dark, Lies in Bone so precisely captures the angst of long hidden secrets and dysfunction—the slow, corrosive descents and the hard-won triumphs. To me, the most disturbing thrillers are the ones that are all too plausible—almost familiar. Consider me disturbed.” —Cindy Stovall, Beauty & the ‘Burg Podcast

“Symons displays her adept playwrighting skills with earthy dialogue that flows effortlessly…I’m reminded of the way Joan Didion writes about similar themes…in The Year of Magical Thinking, but in this one, we have an intriguing mystery thriller on our hands…This small-town mystery with family ties is an engaging and at-times humorous literary thriller.” —Frank Pizzori, Independent Book Review

Lies in Bones is a spellbinder…The book just refuses to be put down..” —Readers’ Favorite 5-Star Review

“You will want to read Lies in Bone all in one sitting – but don’t cheat yourself out of moving fully through the evolution of the story in its own time. An extraordinarily satisfying work.” —Roxanne Fay, author of Upon this Rock: The Magdalene Speaks

“A serious new novelist whose work cannot be ignored.” —Greg Fields, author of Through the Waters and the Wild

“The melancholic force of Lies in Bone will hold you hostage. The humor in this gritty, coming-of-age mystery is driven by a whip smart young heroine like none other.” —Hannah Benitez, author of Dike

Human World by Daniel Amedee, Now Available Worldwide!

Artwork by Michael Protzik Collage.

Happy release day to Daniel Amedee, author of Human World!

Human World is now available in print and digital editions from retailers worldwide. Find it on Barnes & Noble here, Amazon here, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore.

As the Iron Age comes to a close, Earth is a flooded planet invaded by an alien race.

The fractal cycles of humans, nations, and planets are resetting as Earth prepares for the beginning of a new Golden Age.

Told through glimpses into worlds beyond our physical universe, and those beyond our scope of reality, this is a story of humanity’s introspection at the end of the world.

Human World is the right kind of challenging. It tells a story that’s futuristic, yet indelibly intertwined with commentary on the world that we live in today. Part revolutionist fiction, part science fiction, part environmental commentary, part social commentary, Human World is an example of modern literature that’s pushing boundaries.

Human World melds science fiction and spirituality, peeling away the typical layers of recognizable space in its quest to lay bare hidden realities. Amedee’s novel, haunting and demanding, draws the reader into science fiction on its own lower frequency, spinning light and sound into equal parts social commentary, speculative vision, and path to enlightenment.”
—Eddie Ardeneaux IV, Assistant Professor of English at University of the Ozarks

Human World has it all—space travel, time travel, mind travel, astral travel, genetic engineering, cold-blooded super soldiers, spiritual enlightenment, spiritual unenlightenment, and bearded monks in blue robes.”

—Zack Godshall, filmmaker (Lord Byron, Low and Behold)

“This book challenged me. Sometimes I found it intriguing, sometimes frustrating, sometimes enlightening, and sometimes just plain infuriating. All in a way that kept me thinking and considering what I had experienced. But honestly, isn’t that what great art is supposed to do?”

—Eric Stevenson, co-founder of Pocket Vinyl

Daniel Amedee began his work as a writer in the music industry and has been writing and performing for the last ten years.

From 2008 to 2011 he was living in Ireland, writing and playing bass in an Indie Rock band called Remma. The band was signed for a time to Morrissey’s Attack Label and had an EP produced by Noel Hogan of The Cranberries.

In 2012, he started touring full time under his own name and released two LPs and two EPs that featured performances by Pat Spurgeon of Rogue Wave and Sylvain Carton of Beats Antique. The music was described as meditative with an edge and urban folk. He spent 2012 to 2016 touring the US and Canada full time.

In 2017 he moved back to his hometown, New Orleans, to begin work on his current band, LIGHT // SOUND.

The Nautilus is more than just a 19th-century mechanical marvel. She has always represented the ultimate technological triumph over nature, a symbol of mankind’s mastery of our domain, and the human desire to explore the unknown.

Demetri Capetanopoulos is a nuclear submarine engineer and deep submersible pilot living in Central Ohio. Learn more about him and The Design and Construction of the Nautilus on the official website: www.PreciseImagination.com.
