Book Review Storm by Gurpreet Kaur Sidhu and contest



The first in a series, Storm is a twists-and-turns thriller driven by compelling characters challenged by dangerous forces, both external, internal, and eternal. Evan Storm had been confronted by his past (an unpleasant one at that) in his dreams, and now in his waking life. He is struggling to reconcile the evil that lurks in his soul. Shadow Hex is his new neighbor, who also fears a dangerous past – her former fiancĂ© who works for the Secret Eye Agency (which is as shadowy and sinister as it sounds). Does Shadow hold the key to Evan’s redemption? Is redemption even possible?

Edger by David Beem




Edger by David Beem

 Meet Edger (Ed-jer), a twenty-six-year-old gadget retail dork destined to become the world’s first superhero! His superpower: the ability to channel the Collective Unconscious, a psychic network connecting the living and the dead. In his arsenal are the skills of Bruce Lee, the strength of Samson, the wisdom of the ages...and the dancing chops of Michael Jackson—including that one twisty foot move, crotch grab, and fedora tilt. But there's a catch... Like every psychic superpower to get administered through a hypodermic needle, this one comes with a prick. Someone seems to have misplaced the booster necessary for stabilizing his superpower. Without it, Edger has three days before his brain turns to pudding. Join our Dork of Destiny as he overcomes the world’s greatest butt, two rival Cluck-n-Pray gangs, an evil cow, a Green Bay Defensive Tackle, rifle-toting assassins—and a pair of stoners who inadvertently create the world’s first supervillain after a wild night on Twitter!

Mary , Bruce’s wealthy first love, is always in perfect pink; the color of love. Mother of Clair the famous actress and Aaron the corporate lawyer.
Leslie The Second’s color is yellow for her sunny nature as much as for her fears and insecurities. Her only son Bobby is vulnerable and lost. Mourning his father’s death, he finds himself.
Petra The Third, is outstanding in orange, representing not only her native Holland but also her love of the fruit. Cherished her freedom and had no children of her own.
Toni The Fourth is a vibrant passionate Italian red and part of the eventual glue that creates and solidifies this dysfunctional Jones family. Her teenage daughters Tina and Isa are as different as night and day.
Brooke The Fifth a gold-digger. Green, her color, reflects the color of money and envy. Her young son’s Kyle and Caleb are too young to understand why their world has been turned upside-down.
Mara, as blue as the ocean was the last woman to steal Bruce’s heart. Mother to newborn Baby Peter is the unexpected gift and surprise.
Bruce Jones’ eight children speak out, too. They are as distinctive as the women he loved, their mothers.
Loose ends are tied up by the insights of Sylvia, Aaron’s wife and a trusted keeper of secrets; Scott, the private investigator and family friend; Nona, the quintessential grandmother everyone loves but to whom few are truly related; and Detective Jim Miller who will not rest until he discovers Bruce Jones’ murderer.

Read an excerpt -
I take a glance in the small oval mirror by the door and check my smoky eye shadow, dredged in blues, greens and black, long fake lashes and my blood red lips. My eighties rock hair is totally kick ass, teased out big and wide. I have enough glitter on my skin and hair that it’ll take three showers to wash it off. It’s one of the only times I won’t wear a wig on stage.
I’m ready to set the stage ablaze. Too bad Michael won’t see this. It’s my best performance dance ever. What the fuck am I thinking about him for? Get your head out of your ass, Jazz. You’re here to make the money!
Bea passes me, stops short and whistles in appreciation. “Oh chica. You’re going to light up that stage. Knock them dead, rock chick.” She ends in a near shout, giving me air kisses.
“Thanks, Bea.” I smile with enthusiasm. I love being on stage. Not for the stripping part but for the dance. The exhilaration of the performing art has always been my passion.
She squeezes my shoulder for an extra measure of support and saunters off.
I take another quick glance at the rambunctious crowd, measuring what I’m about to deal with and spot Michael right up front and center by the stage. I stumble backward and feel my chest compress out all the air in my lungs.
