Just thought I would share some of the wonderful responses I have gotten to my book!!

"Wai-nani is like no other book I have ever read. Linda Ballou is a master of language, pulling the reader in and evoking emotions hidden deep within. Her imagery will tickle your senses, allowing you to feel the story more than merely reading. Passionate and primal, Wai-nani transports you to the early days of Hawaii. Wai-nani refuses to be bound by the shackles of her society and follows her heart--finding a destiny beyond her wildest dreams. Follow her--no join her--on this incredible journey." Joyce Anthony, author.

Larry M.: I just loved Wai-nani. In every chapter I could see your research and your exploration of years you wrote about. I loved her and loved Eku and family. I found when I put it down I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. Great Job!

A Great Christmas Gift Idea! Do you have a teenager in your life that you love? Or do you love to read books that challenge you deeply? I would like to recommend a new series of books that would make excellent Christmas gifts! Read more . . .Author Steven Clark Bradley to invite you to take a look at my new novel, Patriot Acts. It is being featured at Lost In A Good Book. You can read excerpts and even purchase it from the site, if you wish to buy it. Here is a short blurb of the novel:

Today, America faces enemies that make the world of the Cold War seem like much brighter times. Islamic forces have declared Jihad on America causing the greatest threat to the United States since World War II. In Patriot Acts, America finds itself under covert nuclear attack from a unified force of the Islamic Republic of Iran and radical American Militia groups; setting aside their political and religious differences to carry out the widest and deadliest attack on America in the nation's history. Only one person can effectively retaliate against their aggression, Fisher Harrison, the best trained Special Ops killer the military has who is in a federal prison, framed by his former boss, now the President of the United States of America for a murder he did not commit. From Alaska to the heart of the Islamic Republic of Iran, witness two unified seek to bring down The United States of America, while two others bond to save her. You will be amazed how plausible this story is and you will be shocked by how close to reality it truly could be!

I hope you’ll go there and read about a story that mirrors our present day in uncanny ways. You can also read a lot more about this powerful story at:
