Two Books about the Taino people

History books give scant mention of the Taino people of the Caribbean, yet they played an extremely important part in Columbus's arrival in the Americas. When speaking of the indigenous peoples of The Americas, we usually think of the Aztecs, Incas, Cherokee, Apache, and other well known peoples, yet had it not been for the generous hospitality of the Tainos, Columbus and his crews may have perished.
Two novellas provide some insight into the roll the Taino played in helping Columbus. "Taino" and "Boriken" are not history books, but adventure fiction based on what is known of the Taino. "Taino" is about the people of Hispanola, and "Boriken is about the people of Puerto Rico. The stories are about the Taino people before, during, and after the arrival of Columbus.
Both books are available in paperback and ebook at Riverok Books:

Al Sharpton Not So Sharp

Al Sharpton wants the DOJ to take over all police departments in the U.S.  All would then be accountable to the DOJ.  Right now the DOJ favors Sharpton and his Liberal agenda.  But doesn't Sharpton realize this could change in the near future?  If he should get his way, it could blow up in his face.  He is being very short sighted.

Revision of "Werewolf of Misty Valley"

I've just revised one of my horror e books, "The Werewolf of Misty Valley." The revision made no changes to the original story, but added more scary scenes to the story, making it significantly longer (and scarier, I think.). The e book also contains a short story, "The Dweller in Big Misty."
As for the paperback version, I made the same changes, but added a second story making it a dual novella. The second story will be "Frankenstein and the Zombies." So the paperback version now contains two good horror novellas.
