Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Iranian Connection” by Bill Relf.

Cameron “Cash” Ash, a wildly successful entrepreneur, finds himself embroiled in danger in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Cash has a tragic past, and his need to outrun his tragic childhood results in a dangerous present, affecting his family and his business dealings; his need for answers drags him further down the international espionage rabbit hole. 

Cash has created a multimillion corporation from next to nothing, he has a beautiful wife and two happy children, but he’s still haunted by the untimely deaths of his parents in the explosion of Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, many years before. As this new thriller reveals, when Cash’s wife forces him to reassess his motivation for building his increasingly profitable corporation, Cameron Industries, Cash decides it’s time to focus on his family and start distributing his considerable wealth in a charitable manner, as he’d always promised himself he would do.  Unfortunately, tragedy strikes, and Cash finds himself foundering, with no business focus and his personal life in shambles.

His business team, composed of dear friends who want only the best for their leader, attempts to redirect his entrepreneurial spirit, recommending he use his energy to save a technology company that is under water. As he works to repair the business, he occupies himself with his lifelong search for the terrorist responsible for his parents’ demise. His actions lead him deep into industrial espionage, endangering his life and the lives of those around him. Can Cash overcome the many elements working against him to create happiness again? “The Iranian Connection” is a fast-paced thriller revolving around an extraordinarily brilliant, charismatic hero. Cameron “Cash” Ash is a thinking man’s action star worthy of this page-turning book.

Author Bill Relf taps into his own considerable international experience to create great stories; he’s spent time all over Asia and Africa, and his university degrees in economics, business, theology, and international relations fuel his fiction. Relf lives with his wife, Virginia, in California.

coverDoucet

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Supermarket Guy III” by Daren Doucet.

Harold Wannapus, hero and supermarket chain mogul, is enjoying the peace and quiet that followed the incarceration of Jon Acadou, villain extraordinaire. Unfortunately for Harold, Acadou and his adopted son, Edmund, aren’t content to let things stand. As this new book reveals, Acadou experiences a strange religious conversion in the lock-up and decides he must escape and regain his rightful place at the helm of the Edmundo Market, Harold’s biggest competition. Acadou is shocked, however, to find that Edmund isn’t simply warming his father’s seat; he’s got an agenda of his own, and Acadou has no place within it. 

Harold remains confident he can defeat Edmund as easily as he once defeated Acadou, but Edmund’s mind-controlling concoction turns all of Harold’s friends and colleagues against him while forcing them to mindlessly follow all of Edmund’s dictates.  Can the former enemies declare a truce long enough to prevent Edmund from overtaking the world? Will the unlikely team manage to stop Edmund and his minions before the unthinkable happens? “The Supermarket Guy III” is fast-paced and funny, and the quips fly just as quickly as the punches. 

This is the third novel for author Daren Doucet, who ably creates a universe filled with twists and turns that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Daren Doucet is a native of Petit Rocher Sud, New Brunswick, Canada.

New Novel by Susan Rosvall Provides Thoughtful Look at Vietnam Experience

coverRosvall

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Silence is Broken” by Susan S. Rosvall.

A young man’s military ordeal is detailed in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. After a temporary withdrawal from college, William Scofield is drafted into a 1st Infantry artillery unit in Vietnam; decades pass before he breaks his silence, revealing the shocking story of his 1966 tour of duty.

Author Susan S. Rosvall taps into her brother’s personal Vietnam experience to create the character of Private William Scofield, who stars in this new book.  A naïve young man from a middle-class Southern California family, Bill is unprepared for the brutalities that await him in the III Corps battle zone of Vietnam.

In the relentless heat of Vietnam, Bill confronts both an internal and an external enemy.  Assigned to a seven-man howitzer crew, he meets the hateful Sergeant Moore, an illiterate Klansman from Alabama, who makes it his business to bring Bill down.  In spite of Moore’s insidious threats, and the bone-chilling attacks of North Vietnamese soldiers in the field, Bill performs with courage and self-reliance.  Unwittingly, he emerges a hero 

Meanwhile, Bill’s mother, Abigail, fears that her son will be physically or psychologically damaged by the war, or that he won’t return at all.  Desperately, she searches for information about the politics and progress of the war, hoping to stay emotionally connected to Bill.

“Silence is Broken” is a heartbreakingly realistic portrayal of a young man who becomes an instrument of destruction for an ill-defined cause.  Forever changed, Scofield could be any boy sent to war and forced to act in a manner that goes entirely against his nature.  In the end, his childlike trust of national leaders — and human nature itself — evolves into a mature cynicism.

This is the first novel for author Susan S. Rosvall, whose painstaking research is evident on every page. Rosvall, an English composition teacher at California State University, Los Angeles, lives in San Marino, Calif.

Author Stephen Chapin Kinnaman Shines Spotlight on Forgotten Civil War Hero in New Book

coverKinnamanCptn

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Captain Bulloch: The Life of James Dunwoody Bulloch, Naval Agent of the Confederacy” by Stephen Kinnaman.

Author Stephen Chapin Kinnaman’s latest book describes the life of the South’s most successful naval agent and the events that influenced him in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

James Dunwoody Bulloch–who died in England, far from his Georgian roots—has been described as the forgotten hero of the South. In his new book, author Stephen Chapin Kinnaman details the life and times of this extraordinary Civil War figure, best known as a secret agent of the Confederate States Navy in Europe.  It was James Dunwoody Bulloch who got to sea the most deadly raider of all time, the C.S.S. Alabama.  His family connections, however, were equally impressive; Bulloch’s nephew was Theodore Roosevelt, the country’s 26th president.

 Before writing “Captain Bulloch: The Life of James Dunwoody Bulloch, Naval Agent of the Confederacy,” Kinnaman followed in the footsteps of Bulloch, visiting places such as Savannah and Roswell, Georgia; New York City; Liverpool, England; Cherbourg, France; and the island of Terceira in the Azores, all to better understand Bulloch’s life. Kinnaman’s travels lend a clear note of authenticity to his latest work.  Bulloch’s antebellum career featured service as an officer in the U.S. Navy and as a captain of mail steamers, honing skills he later employed in the service of the Confederacy.  When the Civil War began, Bulloch made the life-altering decision to ‘go South.’  His family was one of many split by this most terrible conflict; after the war they were forced to begin their lives anew in England.

Kinnaman first chronicles Bulloch’s family history and the background of his socially prominent ancestors, followed by his career at sea, his service during the Civil War as the Confederacy’s chief naval agent in Europe and finally his exile in England. The author’s meticulous research into the life of James Dunwoody Bulloch brings alive a fascinating, heretofore unknown character and shines a light on his sometimes-forgotten accomplishments.

Author Stephen Chapin Kinnaman wrote “Inside the Alabama,” an article published in Naval History that explored the features of that famous warship. Kinnaman is also the author of “The Most Perfect Cruiser: How James Dunwoody Bulloch Constructed and Equipped the Confederate States Steamer Alabama.”  He and his wife live in Chappell Hill, Texas.
