Michael J. Gajda Releases THE ANNOUNCEMENT
In his new book, "The Announcement," author Michael J. Gajda creatively explores and presents a challenge to today's spiritual hunger...a hunger which persists in an increasingly disconnected world. This is a powerfully written work...a spiritual, psychological, and social manifesto channeled through a fictional second person voice which takes a hard honest look at (and to) a soft and often dishonest planet that is slipping away from itself, a voice which expects much from its listeners...yet is unafraid to expose and confront the far-reaching consequences if its words are ignored.
Gajda describes his book as a literary lament, "a lament for the injustice, violence, and suffering that pervades when tribal thinking overtakes and dominates the minds of so many, which has become so ingrained and so habitual." At its core it is a moving message of hope incorporating practical insights that readers will easily recognize and may even utilize in order to break themselves free from a world that makes less and less sense.
Artist and musician Bill Sturk says about the book:
"You drive down a road for the hundredth time and notice a house you've never noticed before. You look at a picture and never saw that green spot before. You pick veggies or fruit and think you've cleared the area, then go back and see all the ones you missed. It's all in your point of view. There's a new perspective, a different angle - and you see things differently. And that's where The Announcement comes in. It provides that different point of view, that new perspective, that different angle, and does so with a purpose, It's for anyone who would like to see the world be a better place, but will challenge your ideas of what "better" is."
Told in a unique language that is a combination of poetic imagination and passionate yet unsentimental prose, "The Announcement" is a transformative literary journey that will embolden readers to move beyond the words to pursue within themselves their unique call, away from a world which is so often spiritually deaf to its own purpose.
About the Author
Michael J. Gajda is a writer who lives in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in the southern part of a midwest state which has at least two peninsulas . . . with his two dogs Bud and Woodrow, surrounded by woods and rumors of paved roads. He's recently retired from working thirty years with troubled kids, among other things. And he's currently putting the final touches on an old new work of fiction (so he says).

“Okay, not a good idea,” Anson corrected, his voice holding a needy rasp that made her wonder how it’d feel against her ear with sexy whispers.
Which was definitely in the vicinity of violating her Stupid Resolution. “Yeah, maybe.”
“Why are you still hugging me?”
Ellory tilted her head and laid it on his good shoulder. “Because you need it. You’re in pain and you’re a good man. You’re worried about...” She jerked her head back and looked up at him again, realization forming due to her mouth running wild again. Ruining everything.
“You have a cause.” She snatched her arms back and took two big steps back from the table.
“No, I don’t.”
“You’re trying to make the world a better place,” Ellory clarified, the realization making her exceedingly cranky.
“Yes, you rescue people from the winter! You have a driving goal! You have a mission in life!” Her stomach hurt. The man was definitely a danger to her Stupid Resolution, and her stupid quest and her stupid everything...
“You are such a strange little thing...”
He didn’t get it!
“You’re my type!” She pointed a finger at him. “And I’m not supposed to be dating!”
“I haven’t asked you out, sweetheart.”
And he didn’t get it so much that he was joking around.
Ellory’s cheeks had flamed to life when she’d surged away from the table, like she had just discovered she’d been kissing a big hairy spider. “This isn’t 1957. Women can ask men out.”
His joking eased her enough that some of the wariness left her eyes. She just seemed unreasonably irritated by the fact that he spent half the year helping people who got in trouble in the snow. Especially considering her activities prior to coming to this little special wintery haven had all been aimed at helping people.
He shouldn’t rile her up more. He should put a lid on this situation, say whatever it was that would make her relax. But she’d hugged him, she’d rubbed his feet, and then she’d kissed him back... She was so insistent on taking care of everyone, it was kind of nice to see that she had an unreasonable side.
Donning his best flirting smile, he popped his brows up a couple times. “Are you asking me out, Ellory?”
“You’re not listening! I can’t date you. I have a resolution!”
“You have a resolution, and I’m jeopardizing it by having a cause—which I really don’t think I have.”
“Yes, you do. And, yes. That’s... Well, no...” She took a breath, her mouth screwing up in a way he was probably not supposed to find cute. “Having a cause is my type, but that’s not the only part of my type.” A few seconds passed as she looked to the side, brows pulled together, thinking, thinking... “Never mind. It’s just that you’re very good looking, and you smell like sex and chocolate...and Sunday morning. And now you have a mission to help others. For a second all that messed up my brain.”
He could sympathize—his brain felt equally scrambled. The difference was, he liked it. And he really shouldn’t. Also, her description of his scent was probably the most outlandish and fantastic compliment he’d ever been given. That overt honesty charmed him as much as her manner of speaking amused him. He shouldn’t be feeling this good. His job was unfinished and someone was out there waiting for the cavalry...
Remembering that took the spirit out of it for him. [close]

Keelie doesn’t believe in the “perfect man.” But the men who are worth the trouble are usually taken—like her business partner Zach Barnes. After a string of bad luck and the lost chance with Zach, Keelie decides that maybe flying solo—and living with suppressed desires—is the key to happiness.
As a photographer, Zane Barnes has an eye for the human form, and his eyes can’t get enough of Keelie’s curves. Unfortunately, Keelie is like most women—always fawning over his little brother, Zach. Zane is about ready to give up, but then a few stolen moments at his brother’s wedding have him thinking maybe there’s a chance there after all. Now he just has to prove that the perfect man does exist…for her.
“I want . . .” He slid his hand down from her throat, to rest on her chest, fingers spread wide where it rested above her heart. “This.”
The simplicity of the gesture stunned her into passivity.
She held still as he lifted his head and stared down at her.
She blinked, not moving, as he continued to stand there, his hand on her chest. “I want five minutes of your time . . . over a cup of coffee. An hour for lunch. I want you to pick up the phone when I call, talk with me for a while,” he said, staring into her eyes while the blue- green of his gaze cut into her.
Then he leaned in and pressed a hot, open-mouthed kiss to her chest, just above the neckline of her sweater. “I want to peel your clothes away, learn each and every one of these insanely sexy tattoos . . ." [close]

Die Again is the latest heart-pounding thriller in Tess Gerritsen’s New York Times bestselling series, the inspiration behind TNT’s hit show Rizzoli & Isles.View Details »
When Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are summoned to a crime scene, they find a killing worthy of the most ferocious beast—right down to the claw marks on the corpse. But only the most sinister human hands could have left renowned big-game hunter and taxidermist Leon Gott gruesomely displayed like the once-proud animals whose heads adorn his walls. Did Gott unwittingly awaken a predator more dangerous than any he’s ever hunted?
Maura fears that this isn’t the killer’s first slaughter, and that it won’t be the last. After linking the crime to a series of unsolved homicides in wilderness areas across the country, she wonders if the answers might actually be found in a remote corner of Africa.
Six years earlier, a group of tourists on safari fell prey to a killer in their midst. Marooned deep in the bush of Botswana, with no means of communication and nothing but a rifle-toting guide for protection, the terrified tourists desperately hoped for rescue before their worst instincts—or the wild animals prowling in the shadows—could tear them apart. But the deadliest predator was already among them, and within a week, he walked away with the blood of all but one of them on his hands.
Now this killer has chosen Boston as his new hunting ground, and Rizzoli and Isles must find a way to lure him out of the shadows and into a cage. Even if it means dangling the bait no hunter can resist: the one victim who got away. [close]Giveaway dates: Nov 15 - Nov 30, 201450 copies available, 942 people requestingCountries available: US

A young man dies of a drug overdose and everybody, especially his mother, is looking for someone to blame. His fiancée blames herself, the very ambitious prosecutor blames the pain doctor who wrote the script, but no one expects the blame game to turn to murder.
A respected doctor fights for his life in this explosive trial and bailiff Casey Portman finds out the hard way that sometimes victims blame themselves, while the prosecutor bends the rules of law to unseat the presiding judge.
Set in West Palm Beach, Blame brings back the popular Casey Portman from Rocker’s first novel, Punishment: A Legal Thriller, and introduces unforgettable new characters. [close]Giveaway dates: Nov 15 - Nov 30, 201425 copies available, 264 people requestingCountries available: US

She has no idea how extraordinary she really is, just that she has a different kind of magic; different in a bad way. What Arinda does know is that she must never reveal this difference to anyone lest the King find out about her and send her away to a secretive society called the Circle of Mages, where she would be magically bound to and enslaved by one of these monstrous mages forever.View Details »
When Arinda and her snotty older sister, Amaris, are sent away to school, Arinda is alarmed by the amount of interest the Headmaster Jahx Rife shows in her, terrified that he might find out about her dire secret. However, what she doesn’t know is that the Headmaster is, himself, a secret member of the Circle of Mages, and she has bigger problems than whether or not the King finds out about her.
Then Arinda’s world is turned upside down when her own magic betrays her during a fierce argument with Amaris. Now Arinda must face the very people she has feared her whole life, and call upon powers she has been too afraid to explore in order to endure in a society she has been taught to dread.

Maxwell will learn to work with the complexities of his new world, a world of a new DNA, the shock of not meeting his God, hieroglyphs and psychic power beyond his wildest dreams as a hard-boiled New York City cop finds himself tested in his faith. A heart-stopping metaphysical adventure into time, space and immortal energy, Ross Friedman’s Apotheosis is a shot of pure light into the dark horizon of science fiction.View Details »
As Science’s endless pursuit of answering the unanswerable questions never tires, Maxwell is challenged to question the intent of the questions themselves. Perhaps the endless pursuit is designed to be endless? Destiny has a design for Tom and it is a man named Ajay Mehra who will show him the way. In Daygon, the world he finds himself in, Tom is tasked to protect God’s intent while others believe that since they did not find God after their deaths, that there must not be a God and conclude that they can become Gods themselves by mastering the sciences involved in the afterlife. Friedman addresses a thorny modern question in the adversarial struggle between Insu Dong Yul, a scientist and Tom–the question of God’s existence after modern science has written him out of the equation. It reflects the seemingly endless struggle between believers and non-believers that rage on today. In entering the portals of Daygon, Apotheosis challenges the characters to have faith in God after experiencing death and not meeting God.
Tom Maxwell turns into a denizen of Daygon–and his policeman’s mind is perfect for the quest he is set on. In the ensuing philosophical, scientific, religious and physical struggle, he learns a new way of life and protects the intention of life’s very design, the way that God had intended for mankind. Apotheosis is a thinking person’s adventure book that covers scopes of beliefs of many cultures and philosophies while maintaining fast paced action; it has a love story which underscores the importance of man’s consistent error of not learning from history; and an intriguing conundrum about the afterlife, which is a test of faith, regardless of belief. It leaves readers enjoying the adventure and pondering the many questions mankind cannot answer. It will leave them wondering when Friedman will come out with his next novel. (less) [close]
