Unholy Hunger Lure of Serpent Heather IJames Heather James Kregel Publications
This is where you'll find the successes of my latest and greatest novelists. This month, please enjoy Unholy Hunger, by Heather James, a local Bakersfield attorney and columnist for The Bakersfield Californian. I met Heather in 2008 when she wrote articles for The Northwest Voice. In Unholy Hunger, you meet Evelyn Barrett, who wants to die after her only child is murdered--but I'm not revealing the PLOT to you; readers learn of this catastrophe in the first few pages, and the drama and tension build from there! To read the book jacket, click HERE and scroll down. Congratulations, Heather!

Writers of Kern text
Writers of Kern, bakersfield writers grouops
Writers of Kern (WOK) is a non-profit writing club formed to bring together professional writers and aspiring writers in a safe and creatively stimulating environment. We meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month at the Clarion Hotel in Bakersfield where we convene for two hours, host a speaker and serve refreshments. Guests are always welcome. Members enjoy the benefits of published writers sharing their knowledge and skills through critique groups, at general meetings and during conferences and workshops. Beginning writers receive guidance and assistance in publication. I like to call it “fellowship for writers” because for some people, our meetings are the only place they receive recognition and validation as a writer. We’re a little wacky at WOK because we celebrate rejection slips. I call rejection slips “receipts for as-yet published works.”

One Extraordinary Life Mike Osthimer Danielle Gould
At 17, Danielle Marie Gould died in a tragic car accident. She was gone instantly, but when firefighters arrived on scene, they saw something written on Danielle's hand that would stop them in their tracks and start a chain reaction of faith and healing that no one could anticipate after such a tragic loss. Grief over the death of a loved one can be an almost unbearable experience, especially when it involves the loss of a child. In One Extraordinary Life, Pastor Mike Osthimer presents the lives of two young girls who died just two months apart, tragedies that tested the faith of the families involved and the church family, itself. Osthimer uses his own research on grief and his experiences counseling grief-stricken people to try to bring hope to what seems like a hopeless situation. In One Extraordinary Life, you will meet Danielle Gould and learn how she lived, who she loved, and discover the legacy she left for the world. To order your copy, CLICK HERE.
