Not your average MC: New Motorcycle Romance Release From Bestselling Author Skye McNeil

With plenty of bad boys with hearts of gold, Macha’s members are one of a kind.”

— Skye McNeil, Author

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, August 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hot Tree Publishing is excited to announce the new release of Ankeny, Iowa-based author Skye McNeil and her latest novel “Brewer.” This ninth release from award-winner McNeil with romance publishing house Hot Tree Publishing, is out now in paperback and ebook.

“McNeil balances romance with intense suspense so perfectly. We know romance readers will be hooked by the final installment in her Macha MC series,” said Hot Tree CEO and Managing Editor, Becky Johnson. With themes of justice and brotherhood, and complete with a steamy romance, readers will be hooked by “Brewer” and crave a biker of their very own.

Book four in the bestselling Macha MC series, “Brewer” is the story of Brewer Stapleton who is on the hunt for a Macha MC’s traitor. Nothing will keep him from his mission, not even the woman who unexpectedly brings him to his knees. It’s a gripping and at times moving story of passion and devotion, complete with a happily ever after that romance readers will celebrate.

“Motorcycle club books have always intrigued me,” said author Skye McNeil, “The sex appeal, the danger, the total bad-boy vibe draws me in time after time. That’s what Macha MC will bring each time a reader discovers the club’s men. With plenty of bad boys with hearts of gold, Macha’s members are one of a kind. If you’re looking for a new style of MC bad boy, look no further than my Macha MC series.”

“The crisp spring air bit at his face but less intensely than it should, thanks to his bushy red beard. He zipped up his leather jacket with the Macha emblem stamped on the back and his name and role in the club on the front. For as long as he could remember, he’d been in Macha. His parents met thanks to the MC, and both he and his sister were conceived and delivered in Macha’s clubhouse. Macha was in his blood. He’d never leave the club that was his family.” – from “Brewer”

Serial Killers and Cornish Pasties: Motts is Back with a Purloined Poinsettia

Purloined Poinsettia is Now Available

Author Dahlia Donovan

LGBTQIA British Cozy Mystery “Purloined Poinsettia” is Live Worldwide for Motts’s Next Mystery Adventure

What sort of macabre gift will Motts find wrapped under the tree?”

— Dahlia Donovan, Author

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, August 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hot Tree Publishing is delighted to announce the release of Douglasville, Georgia-based author Dahlia Donovan and her latest novel “Purloined Poinsettia”, under their Tangled Tree imprint, “the darker, twisted side of Hot Tree Publishing.”

“Dahlia Donovan revisits Cornwall in her best-selling Motts Cold Case Mystery series, bringing us more from the smart and irreverent Pineapple ‘Motts’ Mottley. Donovan’s unique blend of wit and honest humor puts a fresh spin on the cozy mystery genre,” said Tangled Tree CEO and Managing Editor, Becky Johnson. Dahlia Donovan’s best-selling Motts Cold Case Mystery series offers quintessential cozy British mysteries and all-around fun stories for readers to throw themselves into. Along the way, readers can expect to cheer for the biromantic asexual heroine, Motts, and discover the unique world she lives in.

“Purloined Poinsettia” is another entertaining tale, inviting readers to cheer on Motts and ask if she’s running out of time to catch not one but two killers? “Writing in the Motts world is always like coming home. Her books flow easier than any other I’ve written. ‘Purloined Poinsettia’ has been a mammoth task in some ways, trying to string together all these little breadcrumbs from previous novels. I’m so thrilled with how it turned out and hope everyone enjoys it,” said best-selling author Dahlia Donovan

Murder comes knocking when a killer hunts for budding amateur detective Pineapple “Motts” Mottley in the fourth novel of the Motts Cold Case Mystery series.

“Think? I’m aware of the numerous times you’ve been perilously close to being seriously injured by cold-blooded killers.”
“Technically, aren’t all killers warm-blooded? Is it even possible for a human to have cold blood? If you put yourself in a freezer, will your blood be cold?” Motts wondered absently. “Right. Sorry. Not what you meant. Oh, wait, I have a present for you in case you don’t come by tomorrow.”
– from “Purloined Poinsettia”

About the author: Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She is an autistic who prefers irreverent humor and unconventional characters and has found great happiness with her husband, her tiny dog Bacon, and her collection of books and video games. An adoptee, TCK (third culture kid), and survivor of childhood abuse, Dahlia uses a pen name to avoid her technically unsavvy adoptive family. Her story is all her own, though.

“In these times of studied ignorance idiocy illiteracy and strutting ingnoramusses, it’s a relief to read Daniel P Quinn’s adroitly titled ‘organized labor’.

Quinn is adept at the written word as he is at the spoken word with all his theatrical ventures. Reading this collection you can almost hear the gentle strains of an operatic aria in the Italian parts and musicality is not absent in the other parts. A small book perhaps but rich in content and well worth taking on a short or long trip. “

“organized labor” is a wonderful book. Specific and powerful. Others evoke old New York , the 1913 Paterson strike, and also issues we face today in the world since 9/11″. Davidson Garrett

We all know this by now.

Paul Krugman could propose alternative economic strategies to end this charade. Emma Goldman said: “It’s the organized violence at the top, that creates the disorganized violence at the bottom.” It is truer now more than a century ago.

Monuments essay:

danielpquinn684 | Newark, NJ 6/25/20

This is a wildly complex question, BUT history must be part of all community outreach or we will learn nothing. Locally, there is a restored version of Gustav Bourglan’s Founders Monument now on the grounds of NJPAC in Newark.

All the Founder’s names were wasps but they were memorialized a century ago by the dominant population of Newark at that time.

There are no Irish, Italian, German, Black or Jewish founders of Newark honored in this “monument”. Old money still dominates so much of our culture. What do we do now as reparation for all immigrants and residents of Newark when they were omitted and now ?

Doubting the New Somerton Man Findings: Do 0.01% Error Chances Actually Matter in Science?

The best scientific explanation is always one that verifiably incorporates and synthesizes all the relevant existing data gathered so far, past, and present.

0.01% error chances count in science, often proving to be more helpful than drawing 99.99% conclusions. In fact, major errors in science are often learned initially by way of 0.01% chances of error.”

— Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, Ph.D., Sociologist and Report Author

GREATER BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Those who have been interested in the Somerton Man (TSM) case may find an article newly posted at OKCIR (also readable below in the scrollable section of this press release) by sociologist Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, Ph.D., helpful in further investigating the case. Tamdgidi is the author of OKCIR’s recently published “Tamám Shud: How the Somerton Man’s Last Dance for a Lasting Life Was Decoded — Omar Khayyam Center Research Report” (Okcir Press, 2021). The report is freely readable online.

According to Tamdgidi, “the new findings about TSM, identifying him as Carl ‘Charles’ Webb with 99.99% certitude, certainly raise new hopes and further venues for exploration, but at the same time add new questions about and challenges for interpreting previously collected data, ones that are still relevant and must also be explained.”

0.01% error chances actually count in science, often proving to be more helpful than drawing 99.99% conclusions. In fact, major errors in science are often learned initially by way of unexpected 0.01% chances of error. Something minor is found not to quite fit a story initially; what seems logical at first proves not to be so upon further reflection. It is for this reason that those offering new scientific propositions usually share all the details of their new findings in advance and refrain from drawing final conclusions, to make it possible for others to also judge for themselves the soundness of any ideas that have been offered as solutions to longstanding puzzles.

Although science aspires to be value neutral, Tamdgidi write, it can never be so without allowing for open and self-reflective acknowledgment of biases in investigators’ work. DNA study results and their interpretations are not purely physical facts or findings but result from human conducted studies and are always explored amid personal and institutional settings that are influenced by human values, interests, biases, and errors.

It is of course always wonderful to make breakthroughs in solving puzzles such as the Somerton Man case, Tamdgidi writes. However, seventy plus years of waiting would be better served by a more cautious and less rushed drawing of conclusions. Ultimately, this case is privately about a person, his relatives and friends, and their characters and lives, and publicly about Australia and how it handles its longstanding unsolved cases. Human beings are much more complicated than what may appear in a newspaper ad or divorce filing. Those who have wished to put to rest the story of the Somerton Man’s death must obviously care about returning him back to dust with dignity to the extent his life had and deserved.

There is a choice here, for example, of reburying TSM as a gambler or as a thoughtful poet who was depressed about having lost many loved ones suddenly to old age or a world war, reflecting on the meaning of life amid a marriage gone sour while facing a terminal illness. The best scientific explanation, in the author’s view, is always one that verifiably incorporates and synthesizes all the relevant existing data gathered so far, past, and present, and refrains from arbitrarily picking and choosing some clues or coincidences at the cost of others simply because new conclusions help gloss over past interpretive failures.

Tamdgidi’s posted article offers some points to consider while investigating and interpreting the information being newly reported and analyzed. It first considers the possibility that Carl ‘Charles’ Webb may not be the Somerton Man. It then considers the second possibility that the two may be the same person.

In Tamdgidi’s previously published 2021 report, the Somerton Man’s code was deciphered to be a suicide note, written in the poetic form of a quatrain composed as a transliteration from Arabic, in the style of “Tamám Shud.” The torn-out piece found in his fob pocket basically served as a key to the transliterated nature of the code found on the back of the book from which it had been torn. The Somerton Man was thus revealed to be poetically inclined, creatively orchestrating his tragic suicide facing a terminal illness as a way of leaving a lasting trace in public memory, having been inspired by the enduring example of Omar Khayyam’s poetry.

Tamdgidi specializes in exploring and advancing the sociological imagination in comparative cultural and global/world-historical frameworks. The sociological imagination, a term coined by the noted American sociologist C. Wright Mills in 1959, is a mode of inquiry in sociology centering on the idea that human life can be best understood by way of exploring how personal and private troubles of individuals and the public issues of their times relate to one another. The Somerton Man case provides a tragic, yet fascinating, window for the cultivation of our sociological imaginations.
