The Tigers of Talighati

As ominous clouds gather over peaceful Talighati, the accompanying darkness brings with it a tale of unfathomable destruction and pain… “Talighati shall be mine!” roars an evil monster, clenching his fists and laughing eerily as thunder and lightning rumble in agreement. Two red-headed vultures nod smilingly, drooling in anticipation. Far away, in another part of the enchanted jungle, maverick Vaayu, feisty Neela, and lazy Dabbu—three teen siblings—enjoy a carefree life, protected by their doting mother, Leela, and their powerful father, Tej …but for how long? Unknown to them, a vicious, blood-thirsty army is marching towards Talighati to capture its territories and destroy everything that stands in their way. Hundreds of bloodied bodies already lie strewn in the wake of its deadly rampage. When a friend brings news of their impending arrival, the family is torn—should they stay and fight, or should they flee? But how can a handful of tigers fight a powerful force? Where will they go? The wicked army is everywhere, and so are the spies. The inexperienced teens and their mother have to embark on a perilous journey through the river, where they can be caught at the next turn. What other dangers await them and their cousin, Yug? Which animals will they meet, and will they help or betray? Will the evil monster and his army have the last laugh? This nuanced Action Adventure is for all those who enjoy captivating characters, unexpected twists and turns, brutal fights, a few shocks, revenge, a healthy dose of humor, a dash of romance, and an ever changing landscape that will take your breath away.

Meet Dave Ryan Haaiski

Hi, I am Dave Ryan Haaiski, author of the YA Action Adventure called The Tigers of Talighati. I love wildlife, especially big cats. After my visits to the jungle, I was always left unsatisfied, because the tiger sightings were either brief or there wasn’t much to see beyond them just sitting around and relaxing in the shade. What I wanted to see were the territorial fights, the hunts, the conflicts, the parent-cub communication, their interactions with other species, etc. In short, I wanted to be that bird on a tree who sees their life unfold on a daily basis. Besides, all the interesting stories I heard about them were never seen personally by me. The idea for this book stemmed from that frustration. Writing it was fun, for I had a fertile imagination right from childhood, when I often created stories of my own to kill time. The writing journey took me almost four years, but it has been a rewarding one, and I look forward to experiencing many more in the coming years. I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Here’s wishing you safe travels, folks!

A Perfect Mess

I know what you did last summer.

Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did

Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers–all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.

Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer–sexy Booker.

Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.”Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.

As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess. Don’t miss the new full length novels, Resisting Samantha and Handling Skylar!

Meet R. W. Hert

Bios are BORING.

I never know what to write or what people want to know about me. So let’s go with the basics. I LOVE Fantasy. Especially dragons! I used to dream about having a dragon. Unfortunately, the closest I’ve been able to get is to write them into my books, and make those books as alive as possible.

I think books should transport you. I mean who doesn’t want to go flying through the clouds, or swimming with the mermaids and get so involved with the words that you actually feel like you are there. When I think of good books, that’s what it does for me, and that’s what I try to make happen with the books I write.

Action! Action is a must. In books and in life, I want something to be happening which is probably why I daylight as a mom of 8 kids (4 of which were adopted through foster care, and let me tell you, if you’re looking for a crazy rollercoaster that is definitely one.)

I also like to get to know people. I want to understand them, and see where they’re coming from. Connection is key.

A young girl…taken from her family, abused, and handed over for a life of servitude is called to join the experiments. Can these two young heroes overcome their fears to stand against such a great evil? Read The Force of Magic to find out. Blending magical fantasy adventure, with super heroes and villains, this is a fantasy story unlike anything you’ve ever read.

Meet Hunter Chadwick

As a lifelong lover of books, I’ve always had a great appreciation for writers and their craft. Over the course of my 50+ years living in different places around the world, I’ve written a few things, but never took the time to sit down and try to write down any of the books I’ve dreamed up. In 2021 that changed. A new opportunity to share stories, one episode at a time, prompted me to try my hand at it. I never could have imagined the positive response my writing received and now I’m happy to expand those stories to a wider audience to build upon what I’ve already written. Nothing would make me happier than to know that you enjoy my stories. Please find me on social media @HunterCAuthor to send me your feedback. About me: I grew up in the Midwest and went to a big state school known as much for their football team as anything else. I studied English Literature and History. It was there that I met my wife and we fell in love. We were married when I was in graduate school and during our first few years working after graduation, God showed us the opportunities to be involved in His work around the world. Since 2000, we’ve lived outside of the United States, having many amazing experiences and meeting people from around the globe. My experiences traveling and my background in counseling are highly influential in my writing.

Juxtapositions from the Good Vibe Lounge – Volume One: The Paradise We Create

JUXTAPOSITION: The act or an instance of placing two or more things side by side, often to compare or contrast or… to create an interesting effect.

Set in Central New Jersey, the Good Vibe Trilogy is a coming-of-age story following the lives of two young people raised in diverse yet dysfunctional environments during the late 1970s. When their lives connect, it impacts the destinies of their friends and family over a forty-year span.

Volume One, The Paradise We Create, introduces Andrew ‘Drew’ Reubens. As a teen, he is a girl-crazy, self-involved kid at the center of a clique of performing arts geeks. One of the many females in his sphere is unfiltered and misunderstood Alyona ‘Yoyo’ Zalenkov, being raised in a rural cult environment with warped family values.

The result of their unlikely relationship is represented in the modern-day events of the story, as Andrew hosts a celebration at his Central Jersey establishment, The Good Vibe Lounge. When the younger generation of his family expresses a desire to understand more about their back story, Andrew pivots, between modern times and 1977, his climactic senior year of High School to weave the story of Drew and Yoyo… and a collection of characterful events and relationships along the way.

With the help of some of his oldest friends, Andrew takes a tour of the often comedic, sometimes tragic.. but all-so-typical journey of adolescents faced with the transition to life as adults in the real world.

The Good Vibe saga is a forty-year history of characters who navigate thru the wonders, challenges, and destiny of human interplay. Along the way, they take on these dynamics, with juxtaposed tales of adolescent frivolity, dysfunctional family, enduring friendship, the depth of romance and sensuous love, criminal behavior, deception, success, failure, the thrill of knowledge, personal progression, and… a good dose of recovering from regrets.

And ultimately seeking to balance ‘what might have been’ with everything happening at the place where reality meets up with all of it… for a reason.
