The GIFT: NEW RELEASE : a dog’s way home by Valerii Titov

The story is a fiction about a dog named Shon (named after my own dog), an American Stafford who finds love and happiness with his owner and friend Jerry. But, that love and happiness is replaced with war and pain for both the boy and the owner after Jerry is sent to study in the United States, leaving Shon behind. They are both plagued by the loss of each other till that feeling of love drives them to find each other again on the battlefield in Afghanistan.Shon finds Jerry but not in the best of conditions. Together, they both make their way out of a hospital recently taken over by the Taliban with their enemies hot at their heels.This story shows the bond between a man and his dog. It is an exciting and thrilling read for dog lovers, war story lovers, and lovers of action story novels.“Thank you very much Dad! Thank you so much, Mum!!” I screamed when my father and my mother finally presented me with the promised dog for which I had waited so long already. I was full of joy and I could not contain my excitement. I could not help crying while laughing as I became full of excitement and gratitude. If the way I screamed my gratitude to my parents did not do a good job of showing how much I valued the living gift that was just given to me, then, the way I hugged the little puppy, almost squeezing the life out of the little American Stafford breed definitely showed how much I loved and valued the puppy.””BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS, FOR THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF GOD ” MATTHEW 5.9or so the movie version would go..“You are lucky to survive, sir. It’s a miracle you survived that long. Somehow, the explosion did not do any real harm to you. It was the shrapnel, your fall and the debris that did you all this damage” the doctor said to me and I was grateful that nothing major had happened to me.But there was a problem. They were talking about cutting Shon’s paw off. I was not going to allow that. The paw was hanging and they said he would need a lot of care if the paw would not be infected. Since the hospital was not a veterinary center, they could not admit him in and start taking care of him. They had only taken care of him because a soldier who was named Jeffery insisted that the dog deserved it. They were basically saying that they could not admit him in and that the only other options would be to cut his paw off, or for me to take care of the dog on my own. I insisted that I would take care of Shon myself and told them that there would be no cutting of anything.” dog, war, action, friendship, short story, best friend, genre fiction, military, family life, family story, a movie version, breeds, an American staffordshier, bravery, self-sacrifice, braveheart, American soldiers

The Stinky Lecture Series (Stinky Stories Book 39) by Peter Grant

All God’s children have a voice in the choir, but that doesn’t mean you want to hear them.

Stinky’s church needs to cut expenses and they enlist Stinky and other members of the parish as speakers for an endowed lecture series instead of flying people in from distant shores. Many at St. Stephen’s are “locovores” and prefer locally grown produce, but the decision to become “locobores” and listen to local, boring speakers satisfies the letter, but not the spirit of the bequest. Plucky Stinky manages to salvage the ensuing disaster, but you’ll have to read on to discover the delights and dangers of inter-species sonics.

About Stinky Stories

Stinky and Eddie appear in over seventy comic short stories in the #1 bestselling Amazon series. Stinky is chatty and insouciant, and while Eddie may not say as much, when something needs to be done, he’s already doing it. They’re as close as Brooklyn and Queens and as unlikely to separate.

Stinky doesn’t go looking for trouble, but he can’t hide from it. It’s part of the “best looking man on the planet” package. His life is complicated, and sometimes even church can be a strain. He might help his rector try to understand his porn star nephew, assist with the annual Easter egg hunt or break bread with a toxic visiting organist. Stinky and Eddie like to live quietly, but lucky for us that never happens.

Stinky and Eddie are supported by a collection of outrageous guest stars and an ever expanding cast of relatives. The stories are witty and literate and readers don’t have to leave their brains in a jar to enjoy them. Whether it’s a flat-out farce, bedroom comedy, sexy romp, sly satire or screwball family intrigue, you’re never far from a happy ending in every Stinky story. Isn’t that what we really need these days?

Each story is an independent tale, but there is some overlap between them. If you’re curious about Stinky and Eddie’s other humorous adventures, go to www.stinkyandeddie.com for quotes of the week, frequently asked questions, publication information and news of our boys’ dealings.

Canvas of a Storyteller by Aniruddha Pathak

In this rapidly changing world, we come across many people around us. These people have many shades, some bright…some dark. They might want to let their feelings out, but they find it difficult to do so – and we term them different from the population. The diverse personalities sometimes make us wonder, what is hidden under their veil? They show a happy face, while hiding an agony beneath their expression. Some want to scream with happiness, but their voices are suppressed even before they could speak about it. Stand by the people who mention their sorrows, happiness, pains, agonies, and much more. You could relate to it, and find them talking to you. Peep into people’s diaries, their midnight loneliness, find them doing weird stuffs, read their confessions, hear to the conversations that they hold with me, and see them either rise up touching the sky or fall down to the ground. The people. Their stories. One storyteller.
