RAISING KANE: FOR THE LOVE OF KANE by Janette Anderson

Kane Branson and his wife Kelly head to England to rekindle old friendships with Kane’s boyhood chums, MI5 head Peter Graham and Italian racing driver Alexander Vincentia. Before the Branson’s arrive, Vincentia fatally crashes at Silverstone, while driving for Mercedes and driving on his own company’s Tyroler tires.

All roads lead to sabotage after another Mercedes teammate’s car, also riding on Tyroler tires, is involved in an accident on the practice laps at Silverstone. Racing along with him is the new brawn from Australia, Kene Branson (better known as Kane Branson). Kane decides the only way he can discover the truth is to become part of the racing circuit. And against his young wife’s wishes, he takes to the track like he was born to it.

Blackmailed into crossing-the-line through his wife’s abduction by possible Italian sources, Kane shows the world what he can really do on and off the racetrack. Bringing home more than just a trophy, Kane proves that no one can cross over the line with him more than once …and live.

KANE: MAN OF WAR by Janette Anderson

Kane: Man of War is disturbing and angry. It comes from a man who hides skeleton’s in closets and has ghosts haunting him. This is a journal of a dark hero, one who is trying to cope with his past and also retrieve some sense of the true hero he once was. This is a journal, hard hitting, and at times a shocking and upsetting portrayal. This is something movies are made of like Godfather and Scarface. Kane is out to raise hell and get revenge – he is dark and troubled and knows he is going to hell. The ending is brutal but satisfying. Vengeance has a new name – Kane.

KANE’S HUNDRED: AND THE HUNTER COMES by Janette Anderson

Fifty-four-year-old Australian Federal Police agent, Kane Branson, is persuaded to come out of seemingly semi-retirement to investigate the increasing drug trade from Lantau, Hong Kong into Australia. The undercover operation is known only to a few as the Hunter Project.

Kane’s team on the mission will consist of new agents, one being his young wife, and vets starting at the hottest place this side of hell: Alice Springs, and take only the tough to the seedy depths of Hong Kong, where drugs and prostitution reign. The project starts with ten people and before they even leave Australia two of the team members are lost. Accidents? Maybe! Someone, somewhere wants Kane to fail, and that could involve the Chinese, or is it one of his own kind? A twist on words with a penchant for truth, with maybe a son he didn’t even know he had. What lies ahead for Kane and his One Hundredth mission?

The on-going Branson saga…

I Married Japan: Readable Poetry by Ben Ohmart

I moved to Kyoto, Japan with my lovely wife Mayumi because Albany, GA wasn’t working as a marital aid. She was used to living in a country where you take your shoes off at the door, where the shower room is more than standing in the bathtub, and where the service element is incredible. It was the latter thing which mattered, and it was not a petty thing. Since 2008 we’ve been enjoying our peaceful, unpoluted existence here. These poems reflect the one thing I’ve learned about living on opposite ends of the world: you take your problems and successes and love and shoes with you.

KANE RISING: THE SIBLINGS OF KANE by Janette Anderson

Kane Branson, Veteran Commander of the AFP, returns to Australia from a mission in Iraq to bury his young wife, Agent Kelly Branson, who died by the hands of terrorist Ryan Holden. Attending the funeral is ex-US Marshal Reese Wade, accompanied by the ten year-old child, Leila, that Reese claims is hers and Kane’s.

Leaving his entire family behind, Kane and his bodyguard, Hunter McLeod, set out on a mission halfway across Australia to prove that the child is not Kane’s daughter. Kane must then rise above what life has thrown at him, all his own transgressions and be the parent he should have been… or should he stay a would-be Hell’s Angel with a license to kill?

BRANSON’S COUNTRY by Janette Anderson

His career was founded on hitting the bad guys so hard they’d beg to be arrested just to get away from him. Now, the era of shoot-first/talk-later police ethics is over, and no one feels more tested by the new rules than the Australian Federal Police Force’s most decorated hero, Kane Branson.

One year ago, five men brutally raped and murdered Kane’s wife, and although the AFP knows the men, they avoided prosecution for lack of evidence. Kane does his best to abide by the legal process, but he becomes totally frustrated by the law’s inability to bring the men to justice, and finally takes the law into his own hands.

Kane blows one of the men, Pierce, to pieces and all hell breaks loose. Warned by his superior, Captain Buchanan, that he’ll be imprisoned if he continues on a personal quest for vengeance, Buchanan also warns him not to dig too deep, as he might not like what he discovers.

If he absolutely must go after the men, though, Buchanan offers him another way. If Kane can acquire enough evidence on the rest of the men, Walker, Stevens, King, and millionaire Miles Stratton, for the drug distribution operation they’re suspected of running, the AFP will prosecute them… but good.

The catch is, Kane has to do it on his own time to avoid a judicial outcry of conflict of interest, and he has to do it as non-violently as possible.

Kane begins his pursuit by agreeing to protect the daughter of one of the men, Kelly Walker, on her trip back home to visit her father. She’s agreed to testify against him and his cronies when she’s sure that she’s protected from their retribution…that is, after they’re behind bars. Kane connects with a visiting US Marshall, Justice Department Agent Reese Wade, the daughter of an old friend sent to help find and arrest the American member, millionaire Miles Stratton.

Kane and Kelly make contact, and Walker, smelling a rat, takes them to his jungle compound, the hub of his drug-distribution operation. Kane discovers that Walker, with the help of his goons, runs a white-slave scam there, preying on homeless young girls living on the streets.

Kane’s own daughter, Sage, left home two years before and hasn’t contacted him since.  When Kane penetrates Walker’s operation with the help of Kelly, he discovers his daughter living in Walker’s jungle hideaway, a virtual prisoner. Kane now has to not only gather evidence against Walker, he has to get the three of them safely away from Walker’s grasp and keep them all alive in the process, an effort made more complicated as he and Kelly realize that they’re falling in love.

Reese Wade is ‘killed’ and Miles Stratton escapes, and although Kane takes revenge on Walker, King and Stevens, he cannot rest until his personal quest is fulfilled and Miles Stratton is brought to justice.

Finally, Buchanan’s warning that Kane might discover more than he wants to know becomes prophetic, and Kane has to choose between the darkness of the man he used to be, or the light of a new and uncharted future as a father, a husband to a woman his daughter’s age, and as an Australian Federal Police Officer.

 

STRIPTEASE IN NOIR by Jimmy Vargas

STRIPTEASE IN NOIR has been crafted as a gnostic burlesque tract that unveils ‘the occult majesty of the sacrament that is the striptease’. Language shifts between the rat tat dialogue of criminal enterprise, the crack vernacular of backstage burlesque life in Los Angeles of the Nineteen Forties. Burlesque performers will revel in the recapturing of the sleazy sawdust of yesteryear’s vaudevillia, and immediately recognize the archetypical characters drawn in SIN, the travails of burlesque and showbiz and its cold brutality. The illusional conceit of Male control, and ‘brief’ female ascendancy, with desire as an inflammable oil that incinerates not just flesh but soul of both performer and rube. Lovers of Crime Noir will wallow in the ‘recreated’ scenarios of legendary crime czars, and the tentacles of the Mob’s intrusion into all the commercial and ‘charismatic’ business in post war America.
‘S.I.N. also extends the NOIR paradigm beyond the usual cliches of merely physical demise of the anti-hero, according to the prescribed rules of Americana Pulp, but reasserts its real hermetic roots of Greek Godess worship / and Abbisynian myths, updated and recoutoured to the seamy neighbourhood of Los Angeles Burleycue 1947.

UNDER THE KNIFE by Steve Hayes and David Whitehead

A vicious serial killer is terrifying the bayous of Louisiana, and the only person who can catch him is FBI Agent Kate Palmer. But after years spent thinking like serial killers in order to catch them, Kate is facing burnout. To make matters worse, she’s about to rekindle a relationship with the only man she ever loved when the Bayou Butcher strikes again, this time frighteningly close to home.

For Kate, that makes it personal. And it might also be just what it takes to break her completely.

UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE: FRACTURED FABLES BY DAWS BUTLER edited by Joe Bevilacqua

A seal who can’t balance? An elephant who always forgets? A green cow who
walks on her front feet? These are just some of the wacky characters from
the unique mind of Daws Butler, the man who voiced most of the classic
Hanna-Barbera characters–Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw
and Snagglepuss, to name a few.

Uncle Dunkle and Donnie is a collection of imaginative,
never-before-released cartoon scripts by Butler, who also worked on the
classic 1960s Jay Ward “Fractured Fairy Tales” and “Aesop and Sons”
animated cartoons.

The book was edited, co-written and illustrated (in retro Hanna-Barbera
style) by Butler protégé Joe Bevilacqua, who has also recorded an audio
“cartoon” book of UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE, doing all the voices himself!

What the animation industry is saying about UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE:

“It all started with Daws Butler–actor, writer, teacher–writing UNCLE
DUNKLE AND DONNIE children’s stories with exquisite sophisticated humor
but always resonating with gentle and subtle lessons in morality. Then
came Joe Bevilacqua–also actor, writer and producer–vocally bringing to
life all of the charming characters in the Daws Butler book. Reading and
listening to UNCLE DUNKLE AND DONNIE is a delightful experience that you
and your family can and will enjoy!”

– June Foray, legendary voice actress (Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Witch
Hazel, Granny)

“Any cartoon fan can recognize Daws Butler’s multitude of voices, but few
know of his writing. Butler, a purveyor of witty wordplay and twisty
tales, will surprise and amuse readers. These stories now come to life as
told by the hilarious Joe Bevilacqua, man of 97 voices!”

– Linda Simensky (Senior Director of Programming for PBS Kids)

RIDE THE GIANT WOLF by Robert C. Wahl

It was a time of great discovery… before the coming of the white man. The Great Plains was a sprawling land filled with taraha, hordes of plodding beasts, and a tribe known as the Wolf Pa’ni. A young man, strong with a restless spirit, goes in search of a dream, a vision, and makes a discovery so remarkable it changes life as he knows it, occurring amid the backdrop of chaos, war, and love. It began in a place called Tuh-parisu and spanned across prairie, mountains, and desert, and came full circle leading to a confrontation between two men—enemies. One was armed with bow and arrow and fought for pride. The other fought for peace. This is a story of adventure, a journey through the raw wilderness…

About the Author

REMAINS TO BE SEEN by Christopher Knopf

“David “Scott” Fitzgerald, a blue-ribbon feature writer for a major New York
monthly magazine, is fired for an insidious act of literary corruption. No
one will hire him. Possessions repossessed, desperate, down to his last can
of tuna, Scott finds himself approached by a multi-billionaire, Hugo
Medlock, who hires Scott for his mendacity to secure the one thing in the
world Medlock cannot secure for himself. Taken into a world he quickly
discovers he knows nothing about, Scott finds himself encountering forces
far more deadly than anything he’d imagined.”
