Sacred Mounds by Jim Metzner

Cyclonic hordes of insects, a telepathic despot, body-swapping s*x - just a few of the surprises Salvador Samuels encounters when he finds himself swept back to pre-colonial times walking in the moccasins of a blind Indian - who, in turn, has been transported into Salvador's body in present-day America. Four hundred years apart, they're bound by a common mission to rescue our world, aided by the mysterious presence of the mounds. Thousands of these ancient earthworks once dotted the landscape of North America. We still don't know why they were created. Sacred Mounds suggests they are as important today as when they were made over a thousand years ago.

Checking out my Amazon reviews can be nerve-wracking but it's pretty rewarding when you get one like this. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to do this. I appreciate each and every one of them. If you've been wondering what my book is about, taking a look at some of these reviews is a great way to find out. (Thanks also to my publisher Adelaide Books for producing these limited edition posters!) #AdelaideBooks #ATimelyRead #SaltOfTheNation

"Amusing and at times hilarious, Salt of the Nation is a classic road book, a book in which the protagonist discovers truths about himself, truths about our country and also some wisdom that can benefit all of us." Richard Wise (Amazon Review)

I wrote the novel, SALT OF THE NATION, to address and reflect the growing division in our country. I never dreamed it would get this extreme. Better days ahead.

About Violence: Metamorphoses

A proportion is a share that is in comparative relation to a whole. As such, Violence: Metamorphosis is about the amount of everyday violence that must go into the metamorphosis of life. The collection weaves together topics of marriage, children, nature, faith, and regret. Violence: Metamorphosis gives voice to the mundane terror of day-to-day life and creates a balance between that terror and the peace that we seek.

About Winter Lightning

Winter Lightning focuses attention on three separate themes.
In Indianaland the poet takes a nostalgic look at his childhood home in rural Indiana to rediscover his roots and to once again experience the dramatic landscape of the small agricultural community where he grew up.
Winter Lightning contemplates tragedy and hope, but also shifts the focus to the abstract: thought, the ethereal place of idea, and ancestry--he plays with the question of where humans come from and reflects on the interconnectivity of humanity.
Birth narrates the poet's personal experience of having twins with his wife, Sharayah. From the early discussions of whether or not to have another child to the poet's own musings on birth and women and the wisdom of dogs, Birth rounds out the collection with an air of lambency and expectation.

About Hush, Don’t Tell Nobody

In Hush, Don't Tell Nobody Kyle Doty weaves a story about tragedy and forgiveness. Part poetic memoir, part present-day ruminations, this daring collection explores the complexity of human relationships, child abuse, and the Divine.

I appreciated the chance to learn more about Dixmont Hospital. Why? Well, that’s where Douglas Stahlman, husband of Marion Alsobrook Stahlman, was incarcerated after he began harassing a local woman whom he said God had chosen for his wife. Her fiancée (and her family) did not react well to his fervor. I tell this story in my book, CURSED: The Life and Tragic Death of Marion Alsobrook Stahlman, published by Adelaide Books. You can learn more on my website, patriciathrushart.com. Thanks to Jessica Manack for posting this originally! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=499828775480234&id=100063593467790
Thanks to Editor Thomas Page of Academy of the Heart and Mind for reviewing my story collection today at:
https://authoriview.com/InterviewsPreview/320/The-AUTHORIVIEW-Interview---Mitchell-Waldman My interview with authoriview about BROTHERS, FATHERS, AND OTHER STRANGERS
https://academyoftheheartandmind.wordpress.com/2022/06/25/end-of-the-world-sale/ Thanks to Academy of the Heart and Mind for publishing my story "End of the World Sale" today.
Summertime is reading time. Looking for some nonfiction that has a historical bent? Interested in a walk through our country’s story from the perspective of an ordinary family— not the wealthy or the famous? I’d love to introduce you to the family of Marion Alsobrook Stahlman, starting with an epic Atlantic crossing in 1609 and culminating in a struggle between faith healing and the rise of modern medicine. Pick up CURSED at Amazon or through Adelaide Books.
In my book, Cursed, published by Adelaide Books, I introduce you to Samuel Jordan, who left England in 1609 to join the third wave of colonists headed for Jamestown. From his epic journey across the Atlantic, to his Ancient Planter land grants and advantageous marriage, Samuel was a man of influence and importance. Historical plaques in the area pay tribute to his land holding, “Jordan’s Journey.” I hope this historic site can be preserved. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/jamestown-permanent-colony-soon-be-underwater-180980059/?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=&fbclid=IwAR2x8ir_mDFIe-uvKaaFBdlMxV5ikfuR1WnHfMsy-zX81Zco9EFwP2XHosE
I touch on this horrific event in my book, “Cursed: The Life and Tragic Death of Marion Alsobrook Stahlman,” available from Adelaide Books. Marion was born in 1866, as the aftermath of the Civil War continued to roil Tennessee’s Lauderdale County. You can find my book on Amazon. Lauderdale County Historical Society
In my historical nonfiction book, CURSED, published by Adelaide Books, I write about the Battle of Fort Pillow because it took place just a few miles from farms owned by the Alsobrook family. James Alsobrook, an uncle of the book’s main character, Marion, was held as a prisoner by Union troops at Fort Pillow not long before this horrific battle. Lauderdale County Historical Society
Thanks to David Ross and Moronic Ox Literary & Cultural Review for publishing my story "A Young Man's Folly" this week.

Mitchell Waldman's fiction and poetry have appeared in numerous publications, including Alien Buddha Press, The MacGuffin, Fictive Dream, The Waterhouse Review, Crack the Spine, The Houston Literary Review, The Faircloth Review, Epiphany, Wilderness House Literary Magazine, The Battered Suitcase, and many other magazines and anthologies....
Have a great time this week. Sorry to miss being there with you this year.
Thanks to John Sheirer (author of, among other books, Stumbling Through Adulthood), for this review of my new story collection: “Nothing matters anymore. Nothing.” So begins one story at the heart of Mitchell Waldman’s outstanding new short story collection, Brothers, Fathers, and Other Strangers. Fortunately, everything matters in Waldman’s book of stories featuring boys and men who might optimistically be described as “having a tough time.” Waldman has crafted a collection in which each story shines like a beacon on a string of interconnected lights. At a deep level, every moment in these matters a great deal. Every scene, every action, every conversation carries the weight of the world—most of all, every character. The men in these heartfelt stories experience a kind of sandpaper empathy for the people and events around them. At best, they have a rough understanding of why they are who they are. These men struggle, sometimes miserably, sometimes humorously—often both. Waldman’s greatest skill is that he transfers his characters’ gritty empathy to his readers, letting us care for these men as their lives swirl around them. These stories lend themselves well to comparisons with some of the greats of modern short story writing. Two clear progenitors would be Raymond Carver for existentialism and Charles Bukowski for emotional tone. Among contemporary short story masters, Michael Keith’s sad-boy mortality and Robert Scotellaro’s craggy disquiet make great companion writers for Waldman’s universe of complicated and unsettled characters. While men’s experiences are central in the book, women aren’t absent. Appropriately, the women who appear in these stories are equally troubled by life. They aren’t relegated to stereotypes such as mother-substitutes or objects of desire. Most important, the men’s problems aren’t contrived to be the fault of women, as too much male-focused American literature has done at its worst. The insight that men are, for better or worse, the shapers of our own fate is another notable strength of this excellent collection of connected stories. https://www.amazon.com/Brothers-Fathers-Other-Strangers-Stories/dp/1956635025/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=brothers%2C%20fathers%2C%20and%20other%20strangers&qid=1633880925&sr=8-1&fbclid=IwAR322CpbjwU7Z3aYPKqpeZBZMaePD7m27VtyC-fMSgxpLqpEeydICoHeo-k#customerReviews Brothers, Fathers, and Other Strangers: Short Stories
