We have interviewed Mark L. Berry before. We have even promoted his Podiobooks.com releases of Pushing Leaves Towards the Sun – a survivor’s guilt story & Street JusticeAnd now we are pleased to Raise a Racket about Mark’s full cast audio release of 13,760 Feet – My Personal Hole om the Sky!

Book Info

The 747 that went up whole and came down in 876 pieces invaded every part of my life. My only consolation is that, without being able to turn around, she never saw the giant hole where the rest of the aircraft should have been. It was an oblong oval opening to the tumbling sky, bordered by torn cables, shredded aluminum aircraft skin, sheared beams, and spars, and accented with sparking severed wires. And I hope she couldn’t comprehend what was actually happening if she lived long enough to ride this nearly three-mile-high, free-falling hell-ivator all the way down to the ocean’s surface, and then sink to 140 feet below, where her body would wait to be recovered.

This is a TWA Flight 800 memoir told by Mark L. Berry, a former TWA pilot whose fiancé Susanne was one of the 230 passengers and crew who died when that flight exploded at 13,760 feet off Long Island’s southern shore. 41 original companion songs are infused into this story.

Who Killed Clive Peterson?

Bass guitarist Paul Kingston is happy to take a last-minute job playing with Milwaukee’s greatest jazz band. But when the band’s leader is shot dead in the street, his widow asks Paul to find out why.

The police say it was an accident, just another innocent bystander caught in gang war crossfire. But is that really what happened? Could it have been someone in the band? Even a member of the family?

The more Paul investigates, the more he finds that things aren’t as they seem. Can he find and stop the killer before more lives are lost, including his own?


New release! Planet Secrets by Trisha M. Wilson

April 18th, 2015 by Evo

It’s the start of a brand new scifi trilogy! Enjoy Planet Secrets by Trisha M. Wilson

For someone who’s been in college as long as I have, you’d think I’d be used to people by now. And for the most part I am…until I met Meredith.

Meredith was annoying on too many levels to count and was just too self centered to live. Not that I had plans on killing her because I didn’t. Instead, I planned to ship her away to a slave planet where she’d spend the rest of her life toiling away in inhumane conditions. Poetic justice as I like to think of it for all she’d ever done to me.

But as I dug into her history, and present, I found out that she was looking for the Planet of Riches, a mystical planet which generations of people have been searching for.

A planet I’d just started searching for.

If that wasn’t bad enough, she was dealing with the Planet Mafia, the biggest and most organized mafia in the universe. Could I use this association to my advantage or would I end up disappointed? Would I find the Planet of Riches or end up as lost as all the others who’d searched and found nothing? What secrets did this planet have just waiting to be revealed?

The other books in this series are:
Planet Mafia (book 2)
Planet of Riches (book 3)
