The Twinning of Vincent Cassidy
by
Edward C. Patterson

A Novelette



From the dim, dark reaches under the overpass, sits a man with a story - a tale he'll tell to anyone who will listen. His name - Vincent Cassidy. His occupation - well, he'll tell you himself. His fall from grace - a strange encounter in a mirror and his own misguided curiosity. From the pinnacle to the pit, come listen to his tale.

The Twinning of Vincent Cassidy is a short fiction piece meant to tantalize you for an evening unless you decide to read it twice, in which case, be prepared to double the experience and magnify the outcome.

The House of Green Waters
by
Edward C. Patterson

Book IV of the Southern Swallow Series




What one reader says:

"Readers who love historical fiction will no doubt treasure this series. But these books can be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates fully developed characters and finely crafted stories. This book, this series, is a gem that can be appreciated by everyone." - A. Chin
-------------------------------------------------------

"Exile is a state best experienced to understand. To spend thirteen years in a fly-infested wetland, slogging through jungle streams and unfurled on deserted beaches - to be blown hither and thither by storms and falling palms, is a lesson no book can teach. Still, I, K'u Ko-ling, had lived so long to tell of the fire, which heats the back until noodles could be tossed on it and stew made from the sweat." Thus begins the sweeping fourth installment of The Southern Swallow Series - a tapestry of historical adventure and intrigue set in 12th Century China. While Li K'ai-men and his companions are in exile on a tropical island in the south, the political world explodes as a mad prince invades the Sung Empire. It's a time for heroes and riveting warfare, including the first recorded battle in history to deploy poisonous gas as a weapon.

Book IV of the Southern Swallow series -- The House of Green Waters, like its predecessors (The Academician, The Nan Tu and Swan Cloud) is told by K'u Ko-ling, servant to the exiled-Grand Tutor, Li K'ai-men. It depicts the harsh life on Hai-nan Island and the progress of family -- fathers and sons from Emperor, to officials, to commoners. The roots of modernity stir within the soul of the daily life of Sung China and nowhere greater is it witnessed than in the fabric of this tale.

I am offering Abelard and the Dragon's Vapor, Volume 1 of the Adventures of Abelard series for free on Amazon on Saturday. Book description and link are below.

Volume 2 of the series, Abelard and the Witch's Vengeance, is also available. Each is a stand alone adventure for Young Adults and those who are still young at heart. Minimum recommended reading age is 12.

From L. M. Roth, the author of the Quest For the Kingdom series, The Princess Who...series , Cinderella's Shoe A Fairy Tale Murder Mystery, and Disenchanted In the Land of Dreams Come True comes an exciting fantasy adventure sparkling with whimsy and magic.

The Kingdoms of Merdyce and Ryle have been placed under an evil enchantment by the wicked dragon, Dace, oldest and mightiest of his race, whose slimy green vapor leaves his victims changed forever. There is no one who can attempt to break the spell and free the people of the dragon's curse except Abelard, who alone escaped the enchantment.

He discovers that the only way to break the spell is to slay the dragon who cast it, But only the bravest and boldest of knights with a pure heart and a strong spirit can slay the dragon Dace, and Abelard is merely a simple farm boy and the only steed he possesses is his old nag Larkspur.

Abelard sets out on a dangerous quest to the dragon's lair, and engages in battles of wit and power with such fearsome creatures as giants, wizards, witches, marauding knights, and one very irate Fairy Queen. He is warned that as part of his testing for knighthood he will encounter 10 perils, and be given 10 weapons of warfare to help him overcome the perils if he uses them correctly. Only then can he become a knight and hope to slay the dragon and release the kingdoms from the evil spell.

The Jade Owl
Book I of V in the Jade Owl Legacy Series
by
[size=20pt]Edward C. Patterson


My Flagship Novel

23 5-star Reviews

What readers say:

"This is a helluva good yarn, the sort of read we're all hoping for every time we pick up a book, and all too rarely find." - Victor Banis

"This book has it all: Romance, mystery, intrigue, and adventure." - E. Luv

"The Jade Owl is filled with thrills, mysticism, and adventure that captivated me from the beginning." - D. P. Kong




[size=12pt]In China they whisper about the Jade Owl and its awful power. This ancient stone, commissioned by the Empress Wu and crafted by a mineral charmer, long haunted the folk of the Middle Kingdom until it vanished into an enigma of legend and lore. Now the Jade Owl is found. It wakes to steal the day from day. Its power to enchant and distort rises again. Its horror is revealed to a band of five, who must return it to the Valley of the Dead before the laws of ch'i are set aside in favor of destruction's dance. Five China Hands, each drawn through time's thin fabric by the bird, discover enchantment on the secret garland. Five China Hands, and one holds the key to the world's fate. Five China Hands. Only one Jade Owl - but it's awake and in China, they whisper again.

Professor Rowden Gray has come to San Francisco following a new opportunity at the East Asian Arts and Culture Museum, only to find that the opportunity has evaporated. Desperate, he means to end his career in a muddle of pity and Scotch, but then things happen. He latches on to a fascinating young man who is pursuing a lost relic that Professor Gray has in fact been seeking. Be careful for what you seek - you may just find it. Thus begins a journey that takes the professor and his companions on a spirited adventure across three-thousand miles of Chinese culture and mystery - a quest to fulfill a warrant long set out to ignite the world in myth and legend. The Jade Owl is the beginning of a series - a legacy that fulfills a terrible truth; and in China, they whisper again.

To Conquer the Heart of a King

A woman who knows the future but not her own past. The son of a king who must fight for his crown. They will come together to get what they each desire. Their pact will turn to passion…but will they realize it before intrigue tears them apart?

Before Lukas of Falkenberg returns to the Black Forest to take the throne from his dying father, he pays a visit to the nameless Seer at the Cloister of Mariendorf. He takes her captive using her intuition to establish his reign. She willingly trades the punishing confines of the cloister for a palace prison in the hope of gaining her ultimate freedom. Although blind, she can see what the future king cannot-the needs of his subjects. She will win them over, but can she conquer the heart of a king before his half-brother Magnus separates them in a plot even she cannot foresee?
[www.amazon.com/Conquer-Heart-King-ebook/dp/B004OYTUOU]

This short, historical novel is free for a limited time to promote the release of my contemporary, full-length romance Home Sweet Stranger.

Hubert Digby lies in a hospital bed in a post-apocalyptic world. He is over seventy years old, and can't remember his own name, his past life, or why he's the only one alive in world long since destroyed. As if things weren't bad enough, his legs don't work. The bodies in the bed next to him are charred corpses. The sky is a molten red and orange flame, and the roof of the hospital is gone. There is no sign of life, not even a single blade of grass. Hugh is, quite literally, the only living thing.

But often, memories of a beautiful face, a pristine lake, and fishing with a boy come to him in crystal clear imagery. Only he can't tell if they're merely hopeful dreams or actual reality. In order to stay sane - to withstand the hellish ordeal in which he finds himself - Hugh must hold onto everything he can while he can, even if his own recollections are nothing more than pretend.

King of Forgotten Land is a cathartic, literary piece of thought-provoking fantasy about the extremes of isolation and solitude.

Surviving an American Gulag
by
Edward C. Patterson


18 5-stars out of 21 reviews


What readers say:

"Edward Patterson has given us a first-hand look into this obscure place, so hidden in the usual military world. His sufferings and triumphs provide us with a look at a different kind of hero, one that has remained hidden for much of our history, but vital nonetheless." - J. C. Willis

"What strikes me the most about this book is the authenticity. The dialogue sounds like soldiers sound. The personalities are like people I know. The places felt like places I've been. Mr. Patterson paints a picture unlike many other authors I've read." - D. DePew

"Surviving An American Gulag is a poignant and masterfully written story. The characters are well-drawn, the dialogue authentic, and the descriptions put me right into the scene. I would love to see this book made into a movie." - L.C. Evans
=======================================

Welcome to Ft. Gordon, Ga - the Special Training Unit. It's 1967, the height of the Vietnam War and Private Winslow Gibbs has been drafted. He's two-hundred and seventy pounds and a bundle of nerves. He also has issues of a different nature, but in these days before the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, these are dealt with in the American Gulag, the Army's answer to the problem. What they don't count on are the ones like Private Gibbs, who want to survive it and serve.

Based on the author's own experiences, Surviving an American Gulag is a story that the military would prefer remain a footnote. However, it is a defining moment and should not be lost to posterity.

[size=18pt]Pacific Crimson - Forget Me Not
[size=12pt]by
[size=14pt]Edward C. Patterson

Dedicated in Memory of Eugene Sledge


Pacific Crimson - Forget Me Not is a tribute in verse to the men and women who fought War II in the Pacific. The world owes more than it could ever muster to these defenders of freedom during humankind's deepest, darkest and dire hours - a century rivaling the bleakest days in human history. Still, when the lights went out, the lamps came on. It was the everyday citizen, who suffered, but it was the everyday citizen who lifted the lamps and gave their sweat and lives to assure the world would be free of the more bestial end of tyranny's spectrum.

excerpt:
============
On the Beach
============
Iwo Jima, February 19, 1945
---------------------------
Fear no more the mortar's blare,
See no more the star shell's flare -
Rest beneath your comrade's prayer
And let the ash become the dust,
Because the battle's ceased
And for you, the war is over.

On this black volcanic ash
Your blood spilled, a stark contrast
To dark and pitch and dismal pall,
Ennobled by your heroes' fall.
As you rest your noble eye
The honey'd promise that you give
To all who now shall pass you by
Will in the marrow live.

Listen to the pounding surf
That sings your requiem to the shore
And 'though we weep to think of thee,
Your breath is lost upon the sea.
Fear no more the teeming rain,
The heavy load and scarred terrain
For all your cares are set aside
And washed away on Iwo's tide.

No Irish Need Apply
by
Edward C. Patterson


Teens Do the Darndest Things
17 5-star Reviews



Kevin Borden has a secret, and that secret is about to shake the world around him - a tame and suburban world ruled by his widow mother, Sarah and peppered by his study-mate, Louis. Teenagers sometimes do the darndest things, but in Kevin and Louis' case, it's a stroke of wisdom wrapped in fool's gold. In a time not so long ago, in the days of JIM CROW and NO IRISH NEED APPLY signage, the world made it clear to those regarded as the fringe. "Stay away." To those who know no better - or perhaps know best, such lines are only meant to be crossed, or why else would they be drawn.

No Irish Need Apply is dedicated to PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), an organization that has guided many youth across that line into the loving arms of those listening to their hearts; those shattering those hateful Jim Crow signs. Come visit with the Bordens and the Lonnegans as they take that journey across the line.
