An ancient battle of Good against Evil, Angels against Demons…

An ancient battle of Good against Evil, Angels against Demons...

Nicboth: The Journey Begins [Kindle Edition]
Cleve Sylcox (Author), Elizabeth Mackey (Illustrator)

Imagine a mountain where Angels go to rest.
It is in another dimension hidden from human eyes, accessible only by divine guidance. Now, imagine demons fighting demons, fallen angels seeking to regain their former glory by returning to God, but stopped by demonic forces beyond their control. Add in the human element of curiosity, greed, and lust for power and you have, Nicboth – The Journey Begins.

Four humans stumble upon an old chest in an abandoned ammo dump. In it rest the secrets of the past, forsaken, but not forgotten. Two more humans, half way around the world, seek to unravel a mystery to a mountain where angels dwell. Their paths interlock as they strike out against a demon – General Que, whose strength is only matched by his desire to destroy all human life.

Foreclosed (The Mitzy Neuhaus Mysteries, a Cozy Christian Collection, Book 1) [Kindle Edition]

itzy Neuhaus, tall, blonde, and stuck in the 80s, might be the top selling Realtor in Portlandia, but even her office is dead in this economy. Despite her complete faith that God and common sense can fix anything, she has found herself with a full staff and nothing to do–until her favorite run down mansion gets itself foreclosed, that is.

But with the homeowner desperate to keep Mitzy away from his property and Alonzo, the dangerously hot rival investor trying to snatch it out from under her, Mitzy knows she has to work fast, or the economy won’t be the only thing dead…

*Christian Cozy Mystery*

Excerpt

All eyes were on Mitzy. It had been a while since a promising call came in.

“Well?” Sabrina said.

“The Victorian is going into foreclosure!” Mitzy’s big blue eyes sparkled with excitement.

“The Baltimore Victorian?” Joan asked.

“Deb said movers were there last night, late. This morning all of the cars were gone and the house was dark.”

“No kidding? We’ve wanted that house for ages.” Joan and Mitzy had longed for the old house on Baltimore Street. The perfect bones of a Queen Anne Victorian mansion were like chocolate to Joan–irresistible.

The investment potential of that property was almost too much for Mitzy.

Mitzy dreamed of restoring it to its historic glory and selling it to someone with old money. There was always a market for the historically minded, since the best locations were so rarely for sale.
It was a great investment for Mitzy personally as well. The street was zoned commercial/residential. The big Victorian would make as great an office building as it would a home. But an office would not protect the value of Mitzy’s other Baltimore Street property. A restored vintage mansion, preferably on the historic register, would protect her property values nicely.

“I knew this market had to be good for somebody,” Ben moaned. Rehabbing an old house didn’t involve him until the very end.

Pause the proposal, Sabrina. We need to take a trip to Baltimore Street.”

Hearts to God (The Hearts to God Series) [Kindle Edition]

20,000 word romance novella

Orphaned as an infant, Madeline Snow grew up in the Shaker community–the perfect place to learn reverence, hard work, and a love for God that surpasses the need for an earthly family. But the difference between what the Bible says and what the Shakers taught was too much for Madeline, so when she came of age, she left the safety of her home for a new life with her much older sister.

Madeline had been trained to grow herbs and make medicine by the best herbalists in her community, but in the wild Oregon Outback finding a husband is the only proper occupation for a single lady. Madeline left the Shaker community, but her devotion to God and the principle of celibacy, are unchanged. Finding a husband to direct her life is her last priority.

But her sister and guardian is just as stubborn as Madeline. Madeline will marry, whether she wants to or not.

Unfortunately for Madeline, finding a husband isn’t simply a matter of falling in love. Some men are off limits, no matter how they make your heart thunder.

I first  became acquainted with Jean Pike through the Authors Den ( http://www.authorsden.com/), I was a “wet behind the ears” author still feeling around for my genre. Not sure what direction to go. Then I read a short story M Jean Pike, posted on the Den, about a young lady who fell in love with a painting and then well, it’s a surprise. It would be an injustice for me to reveal the story to you. Needless to say I was hooked. I even read several of her Paranormal romance novels. I don’t read romance but I found myself deeply moved and torn apart by the characters. I was hooked and since then Jean has become my Mentor and more importantly a very good friend,
