About the Book:

The hope for the future is locked in the past.

In the not-so-distant future, life as we know it, will disappear. In a few decades, humans will be responsible for the decimation of most of the Earth’s natural resources. Greed and entitlement plague humanity and devastate the natural evolution of the Earth.

The hope for the future is locked in the past! An average Joe holds the key. The problem is, he has no memory…

How can he unlock the secrets from the past to save the world from the Black Death and mindless drones? Will he be the hero everyone hopes he can be?

Join the journey as this action-packet, Sci-Fi thriller takes unexpected turns and twists that confirm the statement; “Things are not always what they seem!”

A Fantastic Book Marketing Idea for a Fantastically Adventurous Novel!

Author M. R. Rodriguez isn’t just thinking outside the box when marketing his novel Moravian Falls—he’s wrapping it in a whole new look!

In this case, the “box” that we’re talking about is his SUV, which he had wrapped in a skin featuring his book cover. A car skin is what it sounds like—a large piece of vinyl that completely covers the vehicle. It looks like a new paint job, but it can be removed—and it allows for not just one color but multiple images and words to be emblazoned across your vehicle. Rodriguez is driving his “DomoMobile,” named for his book’s main character, Dr. Domo, on a cross-country book tour, from Orlando to Seattle and back again.

Moravian Falls: The Fantastic Adventures of Dr. Domo is set in 1965 Dominican Republic. Dr. Domo, a university professor, is called away into the island’s mountains by an ancient behique, or shaman. She passes on to him a magical Taino power—that comes in handy when he returns to Santo Domingo—to find the city in flames from the revolution, his wife missing, and his grandson in danger from evil forces. Can Dr. Domo’s heritage help him save his family during a time of political tumult? Moravian Falls was an EVVY finalist.

We’re excited to hear how Rodriguez’s book tour goes. His unique and bold marketing idea is sure to bring lots of attention to his book—with the added bonus of helping to protect his SUV from scratches on his epic journey.

How Far? A Tale of Determination, DNA, and Drama

by Bob Wilber

(5 out of 5 Stars – 15 Customer Reviews)

Price: $29.95 Paperback

Bob Wilber wrapped up his lengthy professional sports and marketing career in 2016, and immediately wrote and published his autobiography “Bats, Balls, & Burnouts” to great acclaim. For “How Far?” he stretched his writing muscles into an entirely new genre. “How Far?” is historical fiction, and the story surrounds two disparate characters. Wilber wrote “How Far?” as those two characters, in their distinct voices. It is a tale of life, told through the lens of elite athletes playing different games while they impact each other’s lives.

In Spite of It All spans the parallel stories of two women: New Yorker, Claire Fitzgerald, who has yet to realize her strengths, and Frenchwoman Madeleine de Beaulieu, whose impetuousness will lead her astray. It’s 1945 and the war in Europe is winding down. As each woman embarks upon her quest for happiness, neither can anticipate the collision course she is on in this compelling story. And as events unfold under a shadow of secrecy during the Allies’ discovery of Hitler’s propaganda art hidden in the Kaiserode Mine, a twist of fate will cause these women’s lives to be changed immeasurably.
