*Sales Blitz & Giveaway* The John Callahan Series

 


Father Callahan is forced back into dangerous filth, corruption, and crime. Can he remain a celibate priest, or will he abandon the life of faith for more sensual pleasures? Will he stay a good man or return to the dark criminal life he once knew so well?" 


At Home Among Sinners

The John Callahan Series Book 1

by Elizabeth Upton

Genre: Romantic Mystery Thriller 

John Callahan is a good man with a bad past — and his past will not let him live in peace.
Against the odds, he matures from a teenage Belfast street thug and an IRA killer to a happily married man and expectant father. Then fate snatches away his wife, his unborn child—and his world—in the flash of a tragic accident for which he feels responsible. Years later, just as he begins to find peace and serenity again as a monk in a rural Irish monastery, a vindictive superior banishes the handsome young priest to a derelict parish in New York City.


Ripped away from his quiet, cloistered life, Father Callahan is plunged back into a dangerous cacophony of filth, corruption and crime. Will he remain a celibate priest or will he abandon the life of faith for more sensual pleasures? Will he remain a good man or return to the dark criminal life he once knew so well?


In this exciting, insightful novel, Elizabeth Upton puts readers inside the mind of a passionate, wounded and angry young priest as he struggles to live in a state of grace among new friends and enemies in a foreign land.

The Web of Darkness and Light

The John Callahan Series Book 2

Demons never tire. Like the banshees of Irish legend, they cling to John Callahan and fill his heart with wails of despair.

No matter how John tries to live an exemplary life, the former IRA killer is haunted by the memories of the horrors he has suffered — and those he has inflicted in return. Not the monastic life, not the vows of the priesthood, not the move from Ireland to New York City has brought him peace.

In this second gripping novel in the series by Elizabeth Upton, John Callahan has resigned from the priesthood in the hope of living a simpler life as a professor at New York University. However, his promise to a distraught colleague — who soon turns up dead — plunges him into another mystery alongside his friend Ronald Casey, a detective with the NYPD. Who would want to kill a professor of neuroscience? What could be contained in the briefcase she has guarded, quite literally, with her life?

It begins to be clear that Dr. Shannon Grey Feather had discovered a cure for addiction and several complex brain disorders. That is a medical breakthrough worth millions — and one worth killing over. Once again confronted by murder's cruelty and life's injustices, Callahan must find a killer while coming to terms with his criminal past. He longs for true peace and genuine love, but before he can hope for a bright future, he must revisit his dark past — where the looming demons dwell.

Lovers’ Secrets and Revenge

The John Callahan Series Book 3


How much does family matter? And what if there are unknown details about them?

John Callahan visits his beloved grandmother, Annabelle, at her 500-acre estate in Ireland. The peaceful countryside is beautiful, with lush hills that overlook the coastline, so different from Callahan’s home in New York City. After Annabelle dies, Callahan discovers that she’s left everything to him. However, there are some challenges with the staff, where secrets abound, including murder and heightened security on the estate that can’t seem to control the chaos that is happening.

Callahan is perplexed, wanting to solve the murder, understand the workings of the estate, and also longing for a relationship that would create a happy home. He meets Sara, the woman in charge of the horses at the estate, and longs to be with her. Throughout the busy days of work, travel, and wondering if he’s in love, John remembers Annabelle’s words. “Whenever you need my help, rub this precious jewel for consolation, wisdom, and protection. Call me when needed, dearest Johnnie, and I shall come to you.”

Learn how Callahan meets the challenges of revenge, murder, and love to discover the true meaning of friends and family.

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Scribe of Destiny-GUEST POST

 


Say Hello to Fantasy's Most Reluctant Hero 

Scribe of Destiny

by Paul Barrett & Steve Murphy

Genre: Fantasy Comedy 

Briar, son of Patch, is perfectly happy working as a low-level scribe for the Church of Ubel, spending his off time painting seascapes, walking on the beach, and being alive.

That last one is put in imminent danger when the Church hierarchy determines the god Ubel has gone insane. A delegation is gathered to journey to the Oracle of Hiephi so they can learn what must be done to cure the psychopathic deity. Briar, very much against his will, must accompany the group, ostensibly to chronicle the journey for inclusion in the official Church archives.

During their adventures, horrific visions of an angry, scowling teenager plague Briar, and he soon learns there is a deeper, darker reason behind his inclusion in this insanely dangerous quest.

Facing the likes of bloodthirsty pirates, a bloodthirstier gnome talent agent, and The Slobbering Hound of Chaos, Briar slowly, and oh so unwillingly, learns his place in the world. He might even manage to become a hero. If he survives.

What’s coming from the twisted minds of Paul
Barrett and Steve Murphy 

So now that Scribe of Destiny is out in the world, that same world is clamoring to know
what else is in the feverish brain pans of Paul and Steve that they are going to unleash. 
There are several things in the works from our new favorite writing duo. First up will
most likely be a little one-off story that doesn’t have a title yet but can best be described
as a “pseudo-LitRPG experiment.” It will be their first self-published novel and is
currently in final edits.
Next is Knight Gambit (working title), the third book in their space opera series, The
Knights of the Flaming Star, available from Falstaff Books on Amazon. Paul is also
finishing up A Scream of Destruction, the last book in his solo Necromancer Saga
trilogy.
Looking further afield, they are halfway through the second book in the Spade Case
Files with an outline for the remainder. They are also in the beginning stages of their
“epic fantasy” trilogy, because of course they are. 
There are plenty of other ideas floating in their diseased craniums. So, you are going to
see them around for a long time.
