Aloha and Welcome to the 17 February 2018 Savant/Aignos "Valentine's Day" Realtime Text Chat!  

This chat is open to the public. Remember that you will have to register with our host AND reply to the email they send to you in order to post. It's our way of keeping the chat "open" but "secure."  

It's a beautiful morning in paradise and I'm ready to begin. From headquarter's window I can see the first rays of sun lightening the sky over Waikiki and Diamond Head. Being winter, it's "cold" here -- about 68 degrees -- brrrrr -- and the only snow is that which appears in paper cones with sweet syrup drizzled on it. 

How about where you are?

Good morning Dan, and Aloha! We are supremely jealous of your "winter" weather there, even here in TX lol. Cloudy and dreary here, around 50 or so.

It is a balmy 34 degrees her in Casper, WY and the winds are a mere 24 mph so the wind chill is a comfortable 20 degrees F.

The sun is out so as one who grew up north of Seattle I am a happy camper.

Should I post our upcoming sales event or do you want to start by discussing "Island Wildlife" by Robert Friedman, the next exciting release by Aignos?

Science fiction fans should get ready, The One Night Trilogy isn't far away now. Part 1 from Savant Books and Publications, ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK, is progressing through the editing and polishing stages now. I'm getting very excited to share this story about Miles Devereaux, an everyday man from 2005 New Orleans who wakes up one evening on an airplane as it descends into the lavish and sprawling metropolis of Bangkok, Thailand. Little does he know he has awakened 60 years in the future! Before he knows it he is on a non-stop sci-fi adventure, thrust into a real-life game of chess...

On the Savant side of things we have quite a few works in progress:

CLEOPATRA VICTORIOUS
by 
Helen R. Davis

CLEOPATRA VICTORIOUS is the alternative history sequel to Helen R. Davis' award-winning novel, CLEOPATRA UNCONQUERED (Savant 2015). Cleopatra VII, queen of Egypt, has triumphed at the Battle of Actium, which in the annals of history cost her and her lover, Mark Antony, their lives. She has won the battle, but will she be able to win the war and create a new place for her, her dynasty and Egypt in the annals of history?
 
THE NAVEL OF THE SEA
by Elizabeth McKague


THE NAVEL OF THE SEA is a collection of love stories that take place in different countries during select time periods of history, spanning the golden age of ancient Greece to our modern era. The stories are connected by an ongoing narrative about the two writers of the stories, a husband and wife, Claude and Marianne, who live on the Maltese island of Gozo in Italy where they receive postcards from the past that dictate the century and setting for each story. The word ends with a story about how the authors first met and fell in love.

And on the Aignos side of things:

ISLAND WILDLIFE: EXILES, EXPATS AND EXOTIC OTHERS
ISBN 978-0-9970020-7-2
Anticipated 2018 Release

The book is composed of interconnected stories about denizens of a beachfront guesthouse in Puerto Rico, circa 1987. The mostly off-beat characters who pass through the doors of the Solimar Guesthouse are trying to straighten out off-kilter lives; each has a unique story to tell about love, sexuality, survival. Island Wildlife looks with a canny, darkly humorous eye at the struggling humanity of its characters, while also exploring the Puerto-Rico/U.S. relationship, Cuban exile politics, and how the personal and political interrelate.
 
 
 
THE WINTER SPIDER
Caught in a nightmare odyssey after his cousin Jack is busted in Panama for coke trafficking, Remy Karras’ world is turned upside down trying to keep Jack safe, walk the thin line of morality in love and his own criminality, and avoid the violence generated by all the people involved.
 
THE PRINCESS IN MY HEAD
In a three-part work (novel; screenplay; musical libretto), medieval Princess Aqualine the Wise and modern-day Princess Allison the Benevolent defy logic but not magic to communicate through their dreams. Aqualine inks proclamations and Allison holds webcasts, inspiring their loyal subjects and solving problems through ideas and influence gained from each other’s world.  Together they will face their problems, and find a solution over time and space.
