************************************************

Susan Fox was lost in thought as the cab she traveled in negotiated the city’s rush-hour traffic. Her destination was the Sheraton Grand Hotel in South Hope Street – the venue for a celebration of the recent re-election of Los Angeles’ popular mayor, Dean Lopez.

Twenty-two-year-old Susan, or Suzie to friends and colleagues, was attending the function in her capacity as a member of the mayor’s now disbanded election team of voluntary canvassers. That successful exercise, along with a glowing testimonial from an appreciative Mayor Lopez, had helped secure her a sought-after position as an account executive with a prestigious boutique public relations firm. It was her first job, her first real job, since graduating from UCLA where she excelled in the allied fields of communications and journalism.

When the cab stopped for a red light, Suzie reflected on the past week. It was, she thought, the week from hell. And that was saying something. As someone who had been subjected to sexual abuse in her teens, first by an abusive stepfather and then by a corrupt policeman, she’d had some bad times to contend with, but this past week, in her opinion, had to be one of the worst. 

So begins our soon-to-be-released thriller THE ME TOO GIRL. You can check this upcoming book out on Goodreads – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48390120-the-me-too-girl?

Fans of our critically acclaimed historical adventure novels can now read them all in one discounted box set. Four Historical Adventures  spans nearly 3,000 action-packed pages. Each epic tale is set in the 19th Century and each has strong romantic themes.

 

Four Historical Adventures (White Spirit / Into the Americas / World Odyssey / Fiji: A Novel) by [Morcan, Lance, Morcan, James]

Box set launched.

 

Box set includes:

White Spirit (A novel based on a true story):

This epic novel is based on the remarkable true story of Irish convict John Graham who escapes the notorious Moreton Bay Penal Settlement on Australia’s east coast to find sanctuary with the Kabi, a tribe of Aborigines who eventually accept him as one of their own. John is torn between two women – one black, one white – and is forced to choose between them.

Into the Americas (A novel based on a true story):

A gritty, real-life adventure based on one of history’s greatest wilderness survival stories. It’s a tale of two vastly different cultures – North America’s First Nations people and European civilization – colliding head on in the early 1800’s in the Pacific Northwest. One reviewer says the action is relentless. Another describes it as a Romeo and Juliet story set in the wilderness.

World Odyssey (The World Duology, Book 1):

This novel follows the fortunes of three young travelers. Their adventures span sixteen years and see them engage with Native Americans, Barbary Coast pirates, Aborigines, Maoris and Pacific Islanders as they travel around the world – from America to Africa, from England to the Canary Islands, to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Their adventures continue in Fiji.

Fiji: A Novel (The World Duology, Book 2):

A continuation of the dramatic adventures of the travelers who feature in book one in the duology, this novel is set entirely in Fiji. English missionary Susannah Drake wants to convert the Fijians while American adventurer Nathan Johnson wants to trade muskets to them. There’s conflict ahead. The unlikely pair soon have to depend on each other for their very survival.

************************************************

As Brexit and British politics ramps up, members of our burgeoning Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads postulate on whether the world is watching the emergence of the British Empire Mark II.

 

Image result for Brexit

Brexit…Not going well, is it?

 

Here’s examples of what Undergrounders are saying:

What is the Commonwealth if not the British Empire 2.0? https://www.theguardian.com/commentis…

The Empire strikes back? Or delusions of grandeur of an old relic?

Global Britain brand ‘seen as Empire 2.0’, warns top Government official as he slams post-Brexit slogan https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politic…

What about Scotland 2.0? Delusions of grandeur that requires the architects get medicated?

Commonwealth as British Empire 2.0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSw8f…

The Scots think they will get North Sea oil if they left, but my guess is it would be considered a UK asset, and in a divorce divided proportionately to population.

Ministers aim to build ‘empire 2.0’ with African Commonwealth https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/mi…

The UK has a wide and varied expertise in banking and finance, oil and gas, defence, aerospace, health, IT industry and so on, and equipped for the future. 

Brexiters focus on the Commonwealth factor https://www.ft.com/content/bb199160-1…
Nations of the former British empire touted as trade partners by Tories 

Commonwealth may yet be a saviour for the United Kingdom https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/co…

Old colonies have never been priority, but now may be time to rebuild those bridges.

Nicholas Shaxson on Tax Havens, the Banking system & UK Uncut https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqhcM…

City of London has much greater banking power than most realize, in my opinion…This may be an underestimated aspect of the soon-to-be EU-free Britain…

700 Years Banking Cabal by William Stuart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKMXD…

I have given up trying to pick what will happen from this bizarre exercise. Just about anything is possible, but I suspect a cleanout of politicians in the next election is probable. Whatever the ending, there will be strife, but I suspect it will be worse if they don’t exit, given both major parties promised to at the last election. 

Ed Spannaus introduces the September 1997 panel on Britains Invisible Empire. Copies of the Fall of the House of Windsor Report that he mentions are available at www.larouchepub.com Counter-Intelligence editor Jeff Steinberg opens by detailing the structure and nature of the modern British Empire starting with Queen Elizabeth, her perrogative powers, the Privy Council, and the corporate power she wields. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOROJ…

 If they go against the outcome in favor of those who exercised their democratic right to vote to leave the EU then democracy is truly dead in the UK, and it would be better to ‘leave’ personally.

Could Brexit mean a new UK-China relationship? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c84og…

There is no doubt in my mind that the UK politicians have behaved very badly over this whole farce, and I suspect they will continue to do so as whatever happens happens.

“Why not? The country has the financial expertise to be their bankers. .”… Those (British) Venetian Baaahhhhhhhhstards!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6p-lD…

The Queen is expected to do what Parliament decides. She must be in severe difficulty in working out what to do now.

If you leave the EU, you need a large market. 1.4 billion is not bad. But additionally, it gives leverage in future trade discussions with the EU. As I understand, Germany is the major supplier of cars to the UK. The threat of Chinese competition should sharpen Germany’s attitude in trade talks.
