The Pearl of East Texas

by William D. Albright

(4.5 Stars – 23 Customer Reviews)

Price: $23.95

William D. Albright’s “The Pearl of East Texas.” Have you met a real Hero? Whether showing bravery when others thought all was lost or the rise of an individual to stand up against the denial of his or her constitutional rights that changed a nation. Such was the case of Mattie Pearl Albright. This book tells her remarkable and extraordinary story of love, charity, compassion, and leadership. Born in the early 20th century, Mattie grew up in the Jim Crow era in Shreveport, Louisiana, and eventually moved with her husband William to East Texas. In each location, she was a standout, whether at her segregated high school in Shreveport, starting and managing one of the few credit unions established for blacks in Los Angeles, or being an avid volunteer, serving on the city council and founding two chambers of commerce in East Texas. She achieved all of this while raising and nurturing a family.

Introducing Self-Publishing Author C. P. Stewart’s Book Video Trailer for Beyond the Triangle

Announcing the Self-Publishing News premiere of the book video trailer for Beyond the Triangle (published by Outskirts Press, September 2020), by C. P. Stewart.

The Bermuda Triangle: Portal to a Terrifying Future

When storm and fog engulfed the pleasure boats Oblique View and Blue Heron within the Bermuda Triangle, the last thing the passengers expected was to be transported from 2005 to 2283. It is now 2288 and the time travelers have adjusted to their new normal, though it’s completely different from their early twenty-first century life. Jake Myers and his family live in Philadelphia, while Oblique View’s owner Mason Bankowski lives in Jacksonville, which is surrounded by a wall to protect its citizens from the undesirables living outside. When Mason can’t be contacted, Jake and Juan Morales, Mason’s former first-mate, travel to Jacksonville to find him, but instead discover a city controlled by malevolent forces entrenched from two different centuries. Danger lurks everywhere, from soldiers patrolling the city to a government leader concealing a devastating agenda. Are the people living outside the wall as dangerous as they are alleged to be? How many soldiers, guards, and police are victims of mind control . . . and who is controlling them? Can the huge nuclear missile-laden submarine be stopped in time? As pervasive evil closes in with desperate, life-threatening situations, Jake and Juan must use all their ingenuity to save not only their loved ones, but everyone living in and around Jacksonville. A pulse-pounding thrill ride, Beyond the Triangle is the adventure novel you’ve been waiting to get lost in!

C. P. Stewart’s career began with teaching high school chemistry, evolving into teaching high school and university physics. A lifelong resident of western Pennsylvania, he is married, with two adult children and three grandchildren.
