Date With Death
a lighthearted romp through the cemetery of romance, where new love may rise from a shallow grave like a body washed out in the rain. Trekking across the veil to the great beyond and back, that thing that goes bump in the night, seeks the one whom to bump in the night, as mutual passion flares up from the shadows.
The usually stoic Dustin Ney has a more interesting and complicated past than even his dearest friend Arman had thought imaginable. Invited by his parents to their home out west, Dustin embarks on a road trip with his companions. When worlds collide, Dustin’s true self emerges as Date With Death explores the beginning’s of new love, the dying of old one’s and the rotting shells of stagnate friendships being cast off like husks.
Book Reviews From The Beach by Russell
The Place Of Things by Daniel Fisher
It’s no surprise that I love to read. The genres that most intrigue me are Fantasy, Horror and Sci/Fi. Since Covid I have been reading anything that I can find. Some great, some not so great. This particular book, The Place Of Things, from the Breaking Rules Publishing inventory by Daniel Fisher seems to have brought an interesting feel to my thoughts and insights. Mr. Fisher has perplexed me with his imagery and characters. The world and story that he has created is … amazing. His blurb, below, indicates that his characters travel on an epic journey. I say that Mr. Fisher has masterfully taken you/me along with them.
Since taking on this role with BRP I have looked to other reviewers words and suggestions for the writers their encounter. Some find the difficulty of their profession and fail to get out of it. I think that as a reviewer you have the responsibility to… tell the truth – gently. To encourage the writer to continue and strive to improve and get better in their craft. To not discourage and put down but to lift and find what you like about the book, even if it is only a word, a paragraph or line. With Mr. Fisher I don’t have to do any of that.
This book is FANTASTIC! I read it quickly, which means that I was interested. I read it from page one to the end, which means that I liked it. I read it twice – which means that I loved this book. Well done!
I tell you about my feet in the sand all the time. To be honest, I don’t remember my feet in the sand, what the weather was like or what was going on around me. From the moment I picked up The Place Of Things, I was lost in Mr. Fisher’s words and story.
Michael Brian Anderson is a cynic, a mess and an agnostic, who in spirit is truly a wayward soul lost in suffering until this person finds their life turned upside down in an epic journey through Myth, Folklore and a world of the strange, the wyrd, and the gifts from creation.
Transforming like a chrysalis from a broken body into a full realized and rather imposing figure.
This tale I spin is an epic invocation that transcends billions of years through space/time and evolution to cast what one can blossom into when unconstrained by limitations of the mind, and a full realization of the spirit, that a broken body and heart can heal and effect the very outcome of the Great Web of Creation herself.

Have a sunny day
Is the second book in the place of things series. It picks up where the first book left off. Michael Anderson now in a strange new world of mystery and Myth, as well with a strange new bed mate is beginning to find his way. Bone follows his journey as he finds a life outside of the mundane world, and embraces a world he could never have thought possible.
the third book in the Place of Things series is the continuing story of Michael and his new, rather unique fiancée. From the Winter’s Solstice to the Vernal Equinox we find our lovers and their friends explore new and creative ways to adapt to life-altering events.
Having relocated and now a resident in the sanctuary town of Sacred Grove, Michael is finding his place among the mythical, mystical, and mostly immortal residents who’ve hidden away from the outside world. Not only is he coming out of his isolation, but they are also finding he is dragging them out of self-imposed exile as well. Sometimes against their instincts. As his and Kurra’s love deepens, new mysteries are added to the mysteries and his and their worlds will never be the same.
As the union between two souls from two drastically different worlds draws closer, new mysteries, challenges, and threats crop up for Michael, the mortal, and all the immortals that get caught in his wake. Enchantments and wards may not be enough to hold back the onslaught of supernatural forces if the wedding gets bumpy. Many may yet perish if things go awry. May the Goddess help them all.
