Aliens battle for Earth in latest Terry Ray novel

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Terry Ray’s latest novel GXM731 about the aliens who battle to protect the Earth.

About the Book:

Astronomers are now discovering Earth-like planets on a daily basis.  That we are alone in the universe is now a much bigger leap of faith than to accept that we are but one of countless races among the galaxies.

There are races more primitive than Earthlings and races far more advanced. The advanced races travel the universe.  They visit many galaxies, including the Milky Way.  They have been visiting Earth for a very long time.

To think that advanced races are grotesque beings with Neanderthal-like brains … bent upon killing other races in the universe, is to think as a child.  Along with sentience comes pathos – knowing of your own existence, and the agony and ecstasy that accompanies such knowledge.

The sentient races of the universe – Earthlings among them – ponder the origins of their existence and thus, God.  They love, hate, are bored, make love and war, lie, cheat, steal, create art, like to eat and sleep, play, dance, write stories, have pets and houses, tell jokes and laugh, mourn their dead, are curious and like to learn, are afraid sometimes, are lonely sometimes, like to sing.  They are afraid of death – and what comes after.

GXM731 is a space story of the real races of the universe, in all their glory and failings.

An innocent meeting at the mall leads to a torrid love affair and murder? Or does it?

POTTSVILLE, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Raven’s Run novelist Joseph Tarone’s latest novel “A Little Indiscretion.”

ald_fcAbout the Book:

What happens when a traveling salesman accidentally meets an attractive woman at the mall? Joe Tarone’s latest novel takes many unexpected twists.

Missy preceded Mark down the stairs.  At one point she stopped and turned to look at her son. She did not like what she saw. Mark looked diminished–shrunken–not at all like the vibrant 17 year-old that she knew. Only once before had she seen her son look like this.  That was years ago, when a pitch that he threw was knocked beyond the outfield fence and won the local Little League Championship for the opponents. It took a week or more for Mark to recover from that. This, she worried, might take longer.

Rick had been deeply hurt by the accusation of his son. He now waited for his family to join him in the kitchen. Sitting at the kitchen table, his elbows planted firmly on its surface, his bowed head resting in his cupped hands. When he heard the approach of Missy and Mark, he dropped his hands. An expectant look came over his doleful face. After having just considered the pitiful appearance of Mark, Missy was now doubly disturbed by the apprehensive look on Rick’s face. There was a hollow, almost helpless, ache in her chest. It was a foreboding feeling. She had to shake it, she knew that. She had to get her family to where it was only three days ago. It would take more than an apology from Mark, she feared. Something was happening that she didn’t understand.

About the Author:
Joe graduated from Penn State with a degree in Finance.  He lived in Philadelphia and eventually moved to Chester County to work for a small scientific instrument manufacturer which, shortly after his employment there,   was acquired by Hewlett Packard.  After several years in finance with HP, Joe made a major career change and became a Personnel Administrator.

His first book, Some Stones Shine, depicts a decade in his father’s life in the early 20th century.  In it, Tarone has succeeded in describing what life was like in a Coal Region family almost one hundred years ago.

His second book, The Mega-Bite Murders, although obviously a work of fiction, inhabits an environment built upon Joe’s background in the computer and human resource areas.

Caught Up In It, his third book, is a sequel to The Mega-Bite Murders. In it, two supernatural beings set out to eliminate greed in the world. Sometimes humorous, mostly serious, Caught Up In It, in it’s closing pages reveals something that could be a surprise to readers of The Mega-Bite Murders.

Upon his retirement from HP, Joe returned to Pennsylvania’s Schuylkill County where he continues to write.  He has served as an auditor in West Mahanoy Township, and as president of the Shenandoah Valley School Board.  He now lives in Raven Run, the anthracite mining village in which he grew up.
