Pocono Liar Susan Moore Jordan‘s latest novel A MAN WITH NO YESTERDAYS is now available!
“I was born somewhere over the South China Sea in a military transport plane …”
Jake Cameron is facing the struggle of his life. A helicopter crash in Vietnam leaves Jake with total amnesia, and the young Green Beret returns home to a family he doesn’t know and can’t remember. As he attempts to piece together the life he once had, fragmented memories from his childhood serve only to increase his desperation. Unable to be the son and brother his family has lost, Jake sets out to learn whatever he can about the man he was. When he uncovers a dark family secret, he decides to protect the people he loves by disappearing.
MAN WITH NO YESTERDAYS follows Jake on his journey as he fights to find himself — a journey that takes him into his past, connects him with other Vietnam veterans, and eventually leads him to situations, places, and a love he would never have dreamed possible.

Congratulations to Pocono Liar Mary Anne Moore on her new book, THE WAY TO VARANASI.
In this sequel to End of a Lie, reality and myth blur in exotic India.
This is a land of extremes. Opulent monuments of the past centuries lie adjacent to slums teeming with the desperately poor. It is a land where ancient gods still travel the land along with tigers, elephants and the deadly cobra. Hundreds of religions sit side by side with only a tenuous peace preventing open hostilities. Amy Mohr, intrepid physicist, reluctant spy, takes on a mission to prevent an assassination from derailing an Indo-African economic summit. A mysterious map leads her and her partner Mike Stone on a scavenger hunt where the prize is nothing she could ever have imagined.

Pocono Liar Michael A. Ventrella took a break from his fiction writing to team up with culture historian Mark Arnold to write a book about the Monkees’ music. It was released this week and spent some time at #1 on Amazon’s “Music Reference” chart.
While other kids wanted to be astronauts or firefighters or nurses, Mike watched the Monkees and wanted to be in a band. He later did play in a few bands but for some reason, never had the kind of wacky adventures he assumed would be a part of it.
This book looks at the music, much of it written by some of the great songwriters of the day (Carole King, Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, David Gates, etc.) and gives all sorts of background information as well as the author’s opinions. Also interviewed in the book are some famous rock stars of the era (Tommy James, Peter Noone, Gene Cornish, etc.). “It’s not for everyone,” Mike says, “but people who appreciate the music of that era should find it interesting.”
Their web page discusses the book in more detail. It’s available in paperback or hardcover, and will soon also be available as an ebook.

Dillon Lee’s grandfather was a conspiracy theorist. Every summer he’d take Dillon on a tour of New York City while entertaining him with tales of aliens. Fifteen years later, after a phone call from a lawyer, Dillon is carrying his grandfather’s ashes from landmark to landmark, paying a sort of tribute, and trying to figure out what to do with his unexpected legacy. When someone tries to steal the ashes, a guy Dillon has barely met leaps to the rescue, saving the urn and the day.
Steilang Skovgaard is a reclusive billionaire—and not human. He’s been living in Manhattan for over twenty years, working on a long-term plan to establish a safe haven for his people. For seven years, his reports have gone unanswered, however, and he is the only surviving member of his interstellar team. The connection he forms with Dillon soon after meeting him is something he’s missed, something he craves.
But after someone keeps trying to steal the ashes, it looks as though Dillon’s grandfather was involved in more than theories—and might not have been exactly who everyone thought he was. Steilang doesn’t know how close he can get to the truth without revealing himself, and Dillon is running out of people to trust. Can these two work out what’s going on before the thieves set their sights higher?

The only good Muslim is a dead Muslim …
In a socially and politically divided country after the presidential election, activist and American Muslim Nour Ibrahim prepares to deliver a speech at an anti-hate rally condemning the surge of attacks against people of color, immigrants, Muslims, and anyone else deemed different or disposable. As her inbox overflows with racist, xenophobic threats, she struggles to remain focused, refusing to give in to the fear. Concerns for her safety during the speech mount as one ruthless stalker escalates his terror campaign. Bitter and blinded by hate, he’s not satisfied with merely keeping Nour from speaking out: he threatens to silence her for good.
Stressed by the impending rally, a stabbing pain in her gut, and an Internet psycho who has her in his crosshairs, Nour begins to wonder—which one will kill her first?
Author of As One Door Closes, The Broken Half, Secrets That Find Us, and But You LOOK Just Fine, native born American Muslim (and Liars Club member) Sahar Abdulaziz uses her writing platform and voice to advocate for the underrepresented and marginalized. Her multidimensional characters have been described as having “substance and soul.”
