'Toppling Pedestals' by D.J.Manly
In ‘Toppling Pedestals’, DJ Manly deals with the sin of pride.
The thought that there was something better out there took Tristan away...then pride almost broke his heart.
Tristan, Samuel and Casey had been friends since grade one. When Casey-the doctor’s son-goes off to university, Samuel and Tristan are left behind in their small hometown. Samuel comes from a poor background and has no money for school. He takes a job in the hardware store that Tristan’s parents own.
Tristan decides to work at the store for a year before joining Casey at school. He’s expected to run the store eventually but wants to explore what’s out there first. Breaking away from the town means breaking Samuel’s heart. When tragedy brings Tristan home again, will pride stand in the way of letting Samuel know how he feels?
'If Come' by A.J.Llewellyn
In If Come, AJ Llewellyn deals with the ancient deadly sin of acedia.
It was once considered the 'noonday demon'-a melancholia that is brought about by repetitive work. Writing, marriage and monkhood were the three main occupations said to induce it.
Zam Carmarthen is a mildly successful Hollywood screenwriter struggling with a debilitating depression that prevents him from completing anything he starts. When he lands an ‘If Come’ deal with a major Hollywood producer, he's finally forced to focus on his work and not give into the strange malaise gripping him. In order to ever move ahead in the movie business, he must complete the pilot episode of his proposed TV series, Angel Inn. If his producer is able to sell the series, Zam will be a very rich man. Everything he has worked for can be his.
Paralysed by his depression, he finds unusual solace in the form of his arch nemesis, Dominic Glass-a surgeon turned super successful screenwriter...and the man who rewrote Zam's hit screenplay for his own glory.
Can Zam overcome the depression Dominic calls acedia, which threatens to derail his whole life? Can he move on from his long time sex buddy Jason? And what about these new feelings he has for Dominic in spite of their rocky history? Will Zam get it together...or will Dominic once again walk away with all the credit for something Zam created?
'Winter Challenge' by Serena Yates
In Winter Challenge, Serena Yates deals with the sin of greed.
Paediatrician Noah Goldwin receives some bad news-his father has died and his greedy elder brother doesn’t only take over the family business, he wants the entire fortune for himself. So, he informs Noah that he was adopted and washes his hands of him. Noah, who never knew of his past, sets out to find his roots.
An elderly aunt, a mysterious ring and a location in the far north of Canada are his only hints...until he meets a tall, dark stranger who may have the solution to all his questions. There is only one problem-Ataro lives in a parallel dimension.
Will the two men be able to find a way to join forces? How will they defeat the power hungry enemies on Ataro’s world? And are inter-dimensional relationships even possible?

Customer ReviewsMy Review of Sins of WinterReviewed by Silver Pixie from United States
Toppling Pedestals is one of the best Shorts I have read of DJ Manly’s in a while. I adore all of DJ’s novels don’t get me wrong but this book spoke to me. I understand what it means to place someone on a Pedestal and not letting go of my pride long enough to tell them what they really mean to me. I understand what it means to lose a chance in life. Tristan and Sam reminded me so much of my friend and I that it was sadly scary. Sadly our pride prevents us from getting what we want. In If Come, AJ Llewellyn deals with the ancient deadly sin of acedia. Again He has outdone himself by making the readers put themselves in the book and experience the feelings of Zam and Dominic. Zam is crippled by his Acedia to the point that it threatens his well-being. However we learn as the story goes on that in Hollywood new dogs are up to old tricks. If Come is a sweet, deeply moving must read. Winter Challenge By Serena Yates. I have to be honest but my experiences with Serena have all been books she has Co wrote with AJ Llewellyn together they have always been brilliant however I have to say after reading Winter Challenge she is truly on my Writers to buy from now on. This story is BRILLIANT! Noah a Pediatrician who finds out a secret he never expected. This secret leads him to Canada and to a Man that he is connected to in ways his clinical mind has a hard time to wrapping itself around. Will they be able to find those who seek to harm them or will they fail their Winter Challenge.February 2012
