ALL EYES ARE ON THE MIDDLE EAST
With the icon of an eye, G.M. Masterson's new novel, Alexander: Hall of the Gods, we travel back in time to
ancient Egypt. A thriller that will have you sitting on the edge of your chair and chewing your fingernails to the quick,
you won't want to put it down until you reach the conclusion. Here is the description from the back of the book.
Inspired by true events, Hall of the Gods chronicles the adventures of an orphan boy with a phenomenal intellect.
AD, Egypt --- Baron Algernon Northgate breaks into an unmarked tomb. Shortly after his return to England with two mummies
and a collection of mysterious artifacts, he vanishes without a trace...
Present-day Oxford --- Young Alexander uncovers
a disturbing truth while searching for his lost parents: they were burnt to death in a freak accident. Worse still, it appears
that he is the sole survivor of an aristocratic dynasty, believed to have been cursed. Tracking down the location of his ancestral
family home, he finds it abandoned.
For Alexander and his tutor, tempestuous accident-prone professor Frank Malone,
this is just the start of a strange and dangerous quest. Breaking into the eerie mansion, they stumble across the journals
of the Victorian Baron. The journals tell a compelling story of excavations on the Giza plateau. Determined to unearth the
secrets of the Baron, the duo return to the mansion - unaware of the incredible fate that awaits them.
G.M. Masterson hails from jolly old England, and if you have your eye on Egypt, be sure to check out his website
to glean a lot more information from behind the scenes of the country. It is filled with fascinating facts and fables.

MORE FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT FROM STAR* PUBLISH LLC
Joining Lance Davis with his script, A Midsummer Night's Dream and A Mi$er, which are geared for family viewing,
the popular novel A Christmas Dream by Janet Elaine Smith will soon be available as a script, designed for small
community theater groups, high school and college groups, and dinner theaters. With fairly simple stage settings and
a cast of only 19 characters (plus a few extras for group scenes) it should take approximately 1 hour to present the play.
Janet has no experience in scriptwriting, so she recruited her good friend, Billie A. Williams, to do that task.
Billie is sort of "hanging on Janet's Star" on this, her debut effort with Star* Publish, so Star* owner Kristie Leigh
Maguire has dubbed her "Star's first starlet." But don't be surprised if you hear more from her sometime in the future. She
is a very talented and prolific author in her own rights.
A Christmas Dream is the story of a young woman, Susan Quincey, who was a young widow when her husband died
in Desert Storm from "friendly fire," leaving her alone to raise her young son, who had never met his father.
When Susan's boss sets out to woo Susan, he finds a close ally who is as scheming as he is in Susan's son, Jeremy.
The interaction between the three main characters is endearing and tender and will leave you believing that miracles
do still happen--especially at Christmas time. And in A Christmas Dream, even Santa gets a present!
A Christmas Dream has won several awards, was a finalist for consideration as a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie,
and has been compared by many readers as the new "annual favorite" to replace Miracle on 34th Street.
