Tonight on the Write Stuff — Everyone Was Left Behind

In the midnight hours of April 24th, a prophecy fails and its prophet falls.

Pastor Graham Wilcox boldly predicted Jesus would return to earth on April 24th to rapture His faithful. But, when April 25th arrives, the world is the same, except for Wilcox, who is found dead. His gruesome murder rocks the community where Wilcox lived and the families who frequented the small church that he pastored.

To uncover the truth behind the murder, the skeptical Detective Daniel Seitzer must go to the place he dreads most: church. Along with his new, religious partner, Seitzer wades through a myriad of rumors, secrets, and strange connections as well as an astonishing number of people who had motive to kill Wilcox. Is the killer one of the pastor’s own congregants, or a shadowy figure on the periphery of the church connected with a powerful pharmaceutical company?

For Seitzer, a grieving widow, a multi-million-dollar company, and a faithful but broken family, the truth behind the events of April 24th will either set them free or bury those who have been left behind.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Apocalypse TV with Thomas Allbaugh

Thomas AlbaughQUESTION REALITY

When a reality TV scout “discovers” Walter in a diner near the hospice where his father has been placed, his life has reached a low point. His father is dying, his college teaching career is under threat, and his life is adrift. The scout wants him for a reality show about religion. In a more self-assured period of his life, Walter would have rejected her questionable offer outright, but now he wavers and allows himself to be drawn in. Maybe this is the jolt of energy his life needs. Maybe, if the show succeeds, his university will be so impressed that they’ll finally treat him with respect. Maybe the show will even be what the producers promise it will be, a serious inquiry into faith. Maybe he’ll become famous.

The show brings Walter attention, but for all the wrong reasons. He is misquoted, misinterpreted, misunderstood, and then shot after he has been dragged across the country in an increasingly frustrating and absurd series of challenges. Will his career and reputation survive the public protests? Will his marriage survive the hints of affairs on the road? Will any kind of “reality” emerge to restore his self-respect?

Author picThomas Allbaugh is an associate professor of English at Azusa Pacific University. He has been writing since the fourth grade, when his teacher allowed satire in their “What I Want for Christmas” stories. Later, after winning a short story contest in the eighth grade, and being accused of plagiarism in the ninth grade, because, his teacher said, “You can’t write that well,” he began to read seriously every afternoon in the library during study hall and found he enjoyed everything from science fiction to realistic fiction. Convinced now that writing is not just creating products, but more importantly an active way to reflect, discover new ideas, and process the world, he has managed to publish short fiction, essays, and poetry in a number of small journals. APOCALYPSE TV is his first novel, though he has also published a textbook for first-year writing, called PRETEXTS FOR WRITING.

Tonight on Write Stuff — Asterion with Kenneth Morvant

5129Bej6P0LThe world of the near future. Dictatorships still exist. One such place is America. The America of the past is not the America of the future. Fear and uncertainty has led to a leader for life who has taken control of everything. Every business, private organization and even religion is under his control.

The common apathy has led to austerity. Control is tenuous at best, but it will be maintained, at any and all costs. Taylor Scott, scientist desires to turn his experience creating military technology into an ambitious humanitarian project that will alleviate the shortages and improve life for the citizens by creating a semi-intelligent beast of burden capable of performing agricultural tasks. Plentiful food, better quality of life for the citizens and reduced fossil fuel consumption are the benefits. However, the leader for life has another plan, a sinister purpose for the beasts. His operatives on the inside modify the experiment and steal Taylor’s intellectual property to create a beast that is battle ready and can wield the power of the leader without reservation and with no remorse.

Miscalculation?

No, cold calculation.

Mistake?

No, total domination of the populace is within grasp.

Taylor continues the experiment with the help of fellow scientist, Christine Summers who shares his interests and their interest in each other grows. Unknown to them, their subject will not be the work beast they intended. No, he will be much more.

The experiment is a success, and their creation is not alone.Taylor and Christine must now destroy what they have created. Pursued by their experiment and the leader, they join forces with the freedom fighters and help them win their liberty from tyranny and its unfeeling beasts of war.

Playing God has its consequences.

817TMT5J35L._UX250_.jpgA life-long science fiction fan, I grew up with all the old movies and TV when your imagination had to be larger than the special effects budget. While they lacked that, they did tell compelling stories. Names such as Heinlien,Asimov, Matheson, Serling are just a few influences from the old school. Newer authors include Tom Clancy,Stephen Coonts and Michael Crichton.

51Otfl5RZCL._UX250_Originally from the Ukraine, Iryna K Combs is still considered as a new face to America. Speaking three languages including English, that became just as natural as her native Russian. She grew up in a town on the south of Ukraine doing the same things other kids her age did. Dreaming, hoping and wishing. Growing up, she spoke absolutely no English and never even saw herself somewhere abroad. Nevertheless, writing a novel in another language! She was simply never interested in literature and was not an avid reader.
Iryna went to the local school that brought mostly negative experience in her life. But it shaped her throughout the years. Her college life was much better. She is a holder of bachelor degree in finances. Iryna also studied some psychology and self-studied body language.
In her first year of college she met her future husband online. When she finally got her fiancée visa, they both moved to the states, where soon after, got married. Iryna traveled to most of the Europe, Egypt, and Bahamas and still wishes to see more countries.
Iryna is an ex-model. In the first few years living in the states she did some modeling and acting. Photo-shoots, run-way and photo in the magazine fulfilled her childhood’s dream. A few years later she became a mother of a wonderful and most handsome little boy. Along with learning and experiencing motherhood, Iryna began to make hand-made jewelry and organic soaps. This hobby turned into her small business and became bigger than she thought it would.
In the last year Mrs. Combs discovered: “an author lives inside me”. Never did she think that she would write an English book and that she would love doing it. But she did! And yes, she loved it!
Amazon bestseller in all of its categories “Black Wings” was written by her dream that she saw many months before she actually began writing. The novel was accepted by a romance publisher only two months after she was done writing. Once her book was published, the publisher closed down and Iryna quickly found a new home for her debut. Being released on October 23rd, 2015 her novel rapidly gathered many editorial, professional and customer reviews. Only five months after release “Black Wings” became an amazon bestseller in all of its categories and stayed a bestseller for a week.
Iryna is planning on sequel as she says: “I have so many people asking for sequel that it practically inspired me to write one.” While she is leaving sequel for the end of the year of 2016, she is currently working on her next creation, realistic Biblical fiction.
Combs loves nature, going out with her family, gardening and cooking. She also plans to write her own cook book in the near future. Iryna is working on becoming a certified interpreter in English-Russian. She loves meeting new people and gets shy when given compliments. Combs loves to learn new things and thinks it is good to know everything since we never know what we might have to be doing. Iryna, age 28, is a proud Christian and loves learning more about her religion.

Devin LavoreI was born in Chicago. Shortly after, I was fostered in Milwaukee for twenty-one months. After adoption, I ended up in Michigan with a single mom and an older brother, going to a different school each school year – sometimes two schools in the same year. No, I’m not from a military family. I Moved out on my own when I was seventeen; by then I was living in San Diego. I bounced around for another couple years until the night I met Jesus in an empty Food City parking lot. From that point on, He decided to take over moving me around – and that is when the real adventures truly began! To date, I have moved nearly or around 70 times. I’ve kind of lost count. Today, I have been married for 7 and a half years, I have three awesome little kiddos, and I live in Missouri – and will probably move again.
