New Release – Tale of Ferres

The Secret Library Book Blog

Being as this is a book blog (shocker, I know!), it seemed like a good idea to experiment with taking part in book tours. Though I have dropped the ball this time and posted this a few days late – here I thought I was getting organised but a few things have slipped through the cracks.

So, today we have a new release feature which should have been up yesterday (sorry!)

Cue the amazing Tale of Ferres!

What Death Taught Terrence Blog Tour

Today on my blog I’m bringing you an excerpt from Derek McFadden’s book “What Death Taught Terrence”. This book is an Inspirational Fantasy story that will leave you thinking about the afterlife. I hope you find it interesting and perhaps you might find your next book to read over the weekend. Also make sure to check out the praise Derek has received on this fantastic book.

“What Death Taught Terrence offers a powerful, painful, and poignant look at the life of a man rarely encountered in fiction. Derek McFadden’s writes with an insight few can match.”

— T.F. ALLEN, author of The Night Janitor and The Keeper

“A good story allows the reader to experience life as another person, and McFadden made me do so on a deeply personal level. If you like the works of Mitch Albom, I think you’ll find What  Death Taught Terrence a worthy addition to your library and the reading of it a life affirming journey.”

— BRADLEY HARPER, Edgar-Award Finalist, author of A Knife In The Fog and Queen’s Gambit

LIFE IS A JOURNEY. SO IS THE AFTERLIFE.

At the end of his life, Terrence McDonald must discover its meaning,
or he’ll be banned from the afterlife forever, and his soul will cease to
exist.
Join Terrence–
and those who love him–on a poignant and
unforgettable journey through a life at once wonderful and harrowing.
Learn what Terrence learns. See what Terrence sees. By this provocative
story’s end, readers may even learn a thing or two about themselves.

The TV is on, and I’m on the couch, leaning as far back as I can. My heavy, indecisive brown eyes—their lenses blurred ever since my tumultuous, too-soon entrance into the world—flutter between open and shut. I am half-watching half-listening to a football game on a Sunday afternoon. Was that the doorbell?
“Who is it?” I call out, expecting to hear my daughter, Megan’s, voice. These days, she is the one person who visits me. The only person who knows I’m making my home in this little oasis fashioned from wood felled by my own hand.
“Terry, it’s Mom. I’m here to help you move.”
My mom? That’s not possible. She’s…
Wait. To help me move? Oh, God.
I rise from the couch and glance back at my lifeless body.

Purchase Today!

Terrence McDonald is 55. The year is 2045.

The TV is on, and I’m on the couch, leaning as far back as I can. My heavy, indecisive brown eyes—their lenses blurred ever since my tumultuous, too-soon entrance into the world—flutter between open and shut. I am half-watching half-listening to a football game on a Sunday afternoon. Was that the doorbell?

“Who is it?” I call out, expecting to hear my daughter, Megan’s, voice. These days, she is the one person who visits me. The only person who knows I’m making my home in this little oasis fashioned from wood felled by my own hand.

“Terry, it’s Mom. I’m here to help you move.”

My mom? That’s not possible. She’s…

Wait. To help me move? Oh, God.

I rise from the couch and glance back at my lifeless body. Five-foot-eight standing up, but now it’s slumped over, grayish-blue. A few stray locks of the hair I inherited from my father, still mostly pepper-black, spill over into my unseeing eyes.              

Shit. I still had more I wanted to do, damn it! Was it my cerebral palsy? We’ve co-existed forever. Has it somehow—in its slow, indirect way—finally done me in?

I turn back around toward the TV, and I see my mom materialize in front of me, a concerned look on her face.

“Are you okay?”

“No, of course I’m not okay!” I scream. “So… is that it then? I’m dead, just like that?”

She doesn’t say anything, but her silence says everything.

“How? How did I die?”

Mom puts her hand on my shoulder like she always did when I was a kid and I was upset and needed some time to calm down. “You don’t remember?”

“No, Mom, I don’t remember. If I remembered, why would I ask?”

She is silent for another beat. “If you don’t remember… then it’s probably best if I stay quiet for now. My job is to take you Home.”

“I am home,” I shoot back.

“You don’t understand. Where I’m taking you… this is a different kind of Home. This is the place where you’ll find out what happens next.”

“Is there any way around this? Any way at all?”

These words are as close as I’ve ever come to arguing with my mom. That’s because arguing with her does not come naturally to me. And, considering the life I have, I never thought I’d hear myself plead for it.

“No, Terry. I’m sorry, but there’s not. You know that, if there were a way, I’d tell you what it was. But this has been decided.”

I pull away from her. Am I frightened? No, not exactly. But I am… disheartened.

Before I can go too far, she takes my hand. “Come with me, Terry. I love you.”

It’s been so long since Mom said those words to me—I love you—that I’d forgotten how true and convincing they sounded in her voice, and how much I missed them… and her.                   

Without warning—and without the white-light-emitting tunnel I experienced as a kid— we’re not in the cabin anymore, and I find myself in a house so familiar I am comfortable in seconds. The smells are familiar. The floorplan. The art on the walls. This is a replica of the home I shared with my wife, before she got sick and I moved into the cabin.

“See, it’s not so bad,” Mom says. “I picked it out and furnished it myself. Just for you.”

It is a nice place. Much nicer than I’m used to these days, that’s for sure. Not that I have anything but a vague idea where we are.

Now that I’ve calmed down some, it isn’t just this new house I’m appraising. I’m also getting my first real good look at Mom in twenty years. Hers is a face looking as youthful today as it appeared in the photograph announcing her entrance into womanhood—taken in her eighteenth year. I remember seeing this picture in a family album decades ago.

“You’ve got all the comforts you’re used to,” Mom explains. “Along with a couple you might have forgotten about.”

“So this is where I’ll be living now?”

The frown on her face hints at the fact that things aren’t that simple. “Well, that depends on your appointment, but I sure hope you will. Your father and I are just down the street.”

“Dad’s here?”

“Yes, he made it.” She smiles. She’d told me as much before. Years ago, on her final day. She’d said it twice, in fact. I’m not sure I’d believed her either time.

“My appointment?”

“Everyone has an appointment when they first get here.”

“What happens? Who is the appointment with?”

“I can’t tell you, Terr.” Mom takes a seat in the first of three chairs arranged in front of my large television screen. This is the only liberty she’s taken in the design. The original home had two chairs in front of this television, because two was enough for Mattie and me, but I sense Mom gave me the extra seat in case I should have company over. “Those who have been through their own appointments, like me, are expressly forbidden from sharing any details with newcomers, like you. Each appointment is different based on the soul and the life it concerns.”

“Ah.” Now I’m nervous. And not just because I get the feeling at this moment that Mom is spouting some section of a well-rehearsed monologue. I wonder if, at this appointment, everything in a person’s life is considered.

“Yes, everything is considered,” Mom says.

I shoot her a confused glance. Did she just read my mind?

“Oh, I’m sorry. We don’t often use spoken words or languages here. I mean, we can. And we will, especially in cases when explanations or announcements need to be delivered to a large number of people. God prefers spoken language Himself.  But it’s more common, for those who have been Home a while, to communicate telepathically. I thought that was what you were doing.”

I shake my head.

“Well, in a few days, once you’re feeling acclimated, let me know. You can call me on this.” Mom produces what looks like a cell phone. “That’s a direct line to me and me alone. When you’re ready, I’ll come and pick you up and take you to your appointment.”

“Okay.”

But first, she thinks, get some rest. You look terrible.

I am a little tired, but what do you expect? I’m dead.

“You’re getting the hang of our telepathy already.” She laughs, gives me a hug.  “I’ve gotta get back to cook your father’s pot roast, or he might go a little nuts.”

Sounds like Dad. A hungry Carl McDonald means an irritable, hard-to-deal-with Carl McDonald (I was going to say hard-to-live with, but the word doesn’t fit).

Mom pats my shoulder and disappears. This new Home is going to mean some big adjustments for me.             

***

I’m going to guess it’s taken me the better part of three days‑spent resting and recuperating from life—to convince myself I’m really dead and, secondly, that I’m ready to face whatever might be in store for me. I have to guess at how much time has passed because, as it turns out, this new home of mine, furnished by my mom, does not include a clock. Not one. I only discovered this flaw after she departed, so there was no way to readily remedy it. Stores specializing in timepieces aren’t plentiful in the afterlife.

Wait, that’s not true. Maybe they are. I don’t know what lies beyond these four walls yet. I’ve barely moved since I got here. But I am as prepared as I’ll ever be for my personal appointment, so I pull out the cell phone Mom gave me—an older model ubiquitous in my childhood—for just this situation. It doesn’t require dialing. My connection to her is immediate.

“Terry?” she says.

“Hi, Mom.”

“You’re ready for your appointment?”

“I guess.”

“Okay.” She pauses, a bit too long for your run-of-the-mill pause. Something’s bothering her. “Okay, I’m glad to hear it.”

“What’s wrong? You’re gonna pick me up, right?”

“I was planning on it, but it looks like your Grandpa Jack needs to be picked up today.”

“Oh, you mean he’s-”

“Yep.”

“I’m sorry, Mom. Boy, he lived forever, didn’t he?”

She laughs. “Pretty darn close. I’m just glad he got to go out the way he wanted; peacefully, in his sleep. Anyway, your dad and I have to be there for him, but I’m sending your old friend Charlie out to you. He’ll get you where you need to go, no problem.”

Charlie. How nice it will be to see him again. It’s been a long time. This isn’t the only thought I have upon hearing Charlie will be here soon, but it’s the only thought I feel comfortable sharing, in case Mom can read my thoughts through the phone as easily as she could standing in the same room.

“Okay, thanks. Tell Grandpa Jack I say hi.”

“I will. And you call me when you and Charlie get to your appointment. Otherwise, you’ll have me worried.”

“Sure thing.”

We hang up, and I wait. There’s the sound of tires churning gravel and then a knock at the door twenty minutes later… I think. I answer it.

“Charlie Ewell’s limousine service.” He smiles and nods toward a jet-black vehicle closely related to a town car that’s parked nearby.

I step back. Blink. Once. Twice. He’s still there. My mind doesn’t know how to make sense of this.

It really is Charlie. Well, of course it is. Mom told you he was on the way. Yet despite my mom’s assurance, there is this part of me that snickers at most religions, labels them NOT FOR ME, and I never warmed all the way up to the idea of Heaven. Therefore, even after seeing Mom again, I doubted my old friend Charlie would show up. You’re telling me Charlie will be here! Charlie? Yeah, right.

Just like I couldn’t bring myself to argue with her—Charlie can’t possibly be on his way, Mom! —I can’t deny it now.

“It’s you,” I say.

“Sure it’s me,” Charlie says, as though he’s just shown up to my most recent—and last?—birthday party, cheer on his face, a gift in his hand.

“Like, really you.”

“Yeah. It’s really me.”

How?”

“I know it’s a lot to take in when you’re new,” he says, “or when you’ve just come back. I was so glad when your mom called and asked me if I would pick you up. I’ve missed you so much.”

“Same here,” I admit. The initial shock of seeing Charlie is ebbing slowly, like adrenaline leeching out of my bloodstream after an earthquake.  

“It’s so good to see you, Charlie.” We enfold each other in a backslapping, how-have-you-been hug.

When we’re apart again, he says, “And you, Terry. It’s just now dawning on me how odd this circumstance is.”

“True. But under what other circumstances would we see each other?”        “Good point. In one of your dreams, maybe. You ready to get going?”

“Sure. Is there a set time we have to be there? My mom always said it’s better to be early than late, no matter what the occasion.”

Charlie throws his car keys in the air, catches them, as we make our way down my temporary home’s front steps.

“Don’t worry about time anymore,” he reveals. “Time is a human invention. It is seldom kept here.”

“That would explain the lack of clocks.”

“Which always throws newcomers off. And don’t be nervous. Sure, no one who’s been through an appointment can tell you what your appointment will be like. That’s because appointments are unique to each soul, but they aren’t to be feared. Your appointment is a place where you will get the chance to ask questions and learn.” Charlie flashes a quick grin. He opens one of the back doors for me, and I see that in the car rides an elegant woman. “Terrence McDonald, this is my wife, Patty Ewell.”

Patty turns in her seat, puts out her hand. “It truly is a pleasure to meet you, Terrence. I’ve heard a lot about you.”

I give her my hand but can find no words. I’ve never met Patty before. She passed away the night I made Charlie’s acquaintance.

Derek McFadden is the author of the novel What Death Taught Terrence, available in February of 2020 wherever fine books are shelved. Other works of note include the well-regarded Prose From A Grandson To A Senior Fellow.

Born with a mild case of cerebral palsy, his is “a voice for those whose voices have yet to be heard,” according to the online publication Audacity Magazine.

Tales of Ferrês

Since the beginning of time, one kingdom in the world of Tarzinëa has remained a mystery. Very few have entered its depths and survived. Walk alongside our heroes and watch their tales unfold as they enter the Forest of Ferrês. Discover everything from wolves so large they look like full grown ponies, to devil creatures that lurk in the night. Expect the unexpected as you venture into the magical land of Ferrês where not everything is as it seems.

Note: Friday, May 29th (Today) is the last day you can get Tales of Ferrês for $1.99.

Progress Report: Book finished now what…

I’ve been slacking on my blog again. But I have been slaving away trying to get things done for my Tales of Ferrês release that happened this last Tuesday. Hard to believe after a year and a half I finally finished that short story series. Took longer than I wanted but life just gets in your way when you least expect it. Now I’m closing the book on this chapter in my life and moving onto the next big thing. My next short story series.

Yeah I plan to write another short story series, actually I have three more series planned. The next one up is my Tales of Tarza series. I am journeying to Tarza inside my world of Tarzinëa. I will have different heroes in each story and yes they will be stand alone stories once again. I think that is for the best then readers are able to read in any order without confusion. I’m super excited about this next series. I actually already started writing the stories. I plan on doing only eight this time around, which is actually nine once you add in the bundle book’s bonus story. I hope to keep bringing the fantasy, family values, and journeys that keep you all interested.

Along with doing this series I plan to continue my journey with Gargoyle Sighted. So far I am up to 15k and still going strong. Each month I’ll release a chapter and do my best to stay on schedule. This last month I missed a deadline but decided to showcase a sneak peek from Tales of Ferrês never seen before. Thought it would be a good break since I have a chapter that is going to be super long.

I have another project in the works but I won’t start that until next year. As time approaches I will bring it up more here on my blog. Right now I am focusing on pushing out the Tales of Tarza stories and working on Gargoyle Sighted. What kind of projects are you all working on or what books are you reading? Would love to hear from you :).

Tales of Ferrês Blog Tour – Day 3

Hard to believe the tour is getting close to being half way over already. I am doing a recap of Day 3 (Wednesday). We only had one post for the day and it was over on instagram. The Portal to the Unknown run by Marie Hoping did a spotlight on Tales of Ferrês. I thought it was awesome and definitely showed a different side to instagram for me. I still am learning on the platform but tend to stick to Facebook because it is easier. Check out Spot #7 and show us some love.

We are on day three of the tour but I am doing a recap for day two. It was a long fulfilling day with posts on several blogs and comments. I am super excited about how this tour is going so far and look forward to doing more in the future. Release day was awesome I had 21 confirmed pre-orders so that was a big spike for the month in sales. Overall I think the hard work over the last two months is working out in the end. Now to keep the momentum going so it doesn’t die down. I know taking a few months off from publishing something is going to hurt but I want to make sure my next series is done mostly before I start publishing them. Now for an update on yesterday’s posts. Check them out below:

Stop #3 – The Fantasy Nook Blog

Stop #4 – Paws4Thought Blog

Over on Debbie Manber Kupfer’s blog Paws4Thought, I was featured in another interview. She really challenged me when I was filling out her questionnaire. Always love a fellow author because they always know the best questions to ask.

Stop #5 – SJ’s Book Blog

Now SJ’s Book Blog is a bit different than the others. She features her blog on a Facebook page. I thought it was kind of awesome and makes me think about starting my own. On her post she did a spotlight on my book along with myself. Really neat and you should check it out.

Stop #6 – Within the pages book blog (WTPBB)

Within the pages book blog is another Facebook run blog. I find these quite fun to look at and they are clean to read. WTPBB featured me in a book spotlight on her blog and I think it looks really good. You should stop by to check it out.

JENKINS_AUTHORPIC_2018.jpg

  1. Hi KM, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m an International Bestselling Speculative Fiction author that writes fantasy and paranormal romance. One day I might delve into the horror genre but that is later down the road. When I’m not writing you will find me with my kiddos. Yeah, I have twin boys and they are a handful. They keep me busy and tend to intervene when I’m supposed to be writing.

  1. When did you first start writing?

I’ve been writing off and on since my childhood. However, I didn’t publish my first story until September of 2018. I’ve been working on other works ever since.

  1. Who are your favorite authors?

My traditional authors I love are: Mercedes Lackey, Tracy Hickman, Margaret Weis, Christopher…

The tour officially started Monday, May 25th on Memorial Day. Today though is release day. This post is dedicated to doing a recap of the prior day posts in the tour. I wrote a special introduction that I think will open your eyes to my process writing this book/short story series. That was the first official stop you can check it out here:

Stop #1 – The day is almost here!

After that we moved on to stop #2. That was over on James Quinlan Meservy’s blog JQM. He featured me in a mini interview and showcased a lot of images for the tour. Check it out here:

Stop #2 – JQM Literary Spotlight

I would greatly appreciate it if you would stop on over to James’ blog or mine to share the content around. You can even leave comments for both of us. I want you to enjoy the tour just as much as I do with all the tour hosts too. I will do another update tomorrow with links for Day 2, until then take care and enjoy your Tuesday.

Tales of Ferrês

Since the beginning of time, one kingdom in the world of Tarzinëa has remained a mystery. Very few have entered its depths and survived. Walk alongside our heroes and watch their tales unfold as they enter the Forest of Ferrês. Discover everything from wolves so large they look like full grown ponies, to devil creatures that lurk in the night. Expect the unexpected as you venture into the magical land of Ferrês where not everything is as it seems.

Book Review: Dead Push

We are getting close to the finale of this series. In Dead Waters the ending left you screaming in pain, rolling on the floor. This next book brings you resolve and hope that happiness is still possible. This book features two characters not seen working together—they actually are enemies. But, this time around Jack Seth and Potter team up hoping to save Kiera and her friends.

The Review

Potter and Jack Seth are standing in the railway station Lilly Blu brought them too. Now with one mission in mind they have to find the photographer. So, they both head back through the layers to find this person. Jack gets partnered up with Isidor and Potter has to keep a watchful eye on the Kiera from the layer they are within. They can’t be seen and need to keep from changing events. Will these two find the photographer? Or, will they mess up big time and destroy everything?

This book is slightly confusing since it involves working within the layers and different wheres and whens. I still find that confusing to understand. However, Tim O’Rourke does a wonderful job weaving the tale to help those that get confused. He does such a good job unfolding a story already told through a different POV it is like reading something completely new. You even get to see the inner thinking of how each storyline is pushed and pulled. Love this book and think is is by far one of the best featuring Potter in the POV and it also has the bonus of Jack Seth.

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!


The Book

DEAD PUSHDead Push

“…Most of them just sit as if waiting for someone to join them on their impending journey. Others are rushing for their train as if late for some important meeting. They can’t wait to board one of those trains below ground. When I first discovered this place, I don’t know how long I sat here watching the dead hustle and bustle about, queue at the ticket office and take drinks from the vending machines. Like any new place you visit, like your first day at a new school or in a new job, you soon figure out how things work. I knew I was dead…”

Dead Push is Book Eight of The Kiera Hudson Series Two.
