ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK by Keith R. Rees - Excerpt #1 (This Excerpt is Family Rated) Chapter 1 – The TerminalHe had just awakened from what seemed like several hours of sleep. He stretched his toesin his shoes and tried his best to stretch his arms without disturbing the person sitting next tohim. As he tried to shake the sleep from his eyes, he slowly noticed his surroundings. The seatsin front of him were much further away than normal. He tried to remember if he had been movedup to first class or business class, but he could not. Lots of leg room, he thought to himself. Verynice! Glancing over at his seat companion, he could tell that the enormous man was happy aboutthe ample leg room as well. He was a tremendous man with dark skin and stared straight aheadas if he were in a trance. Miles straightened in his seat and tried not to stare at him. I'd hate totick this guy off, he thought to himself. He gazed around the cabin but no one was standing andhe did not see any flight attendants. He could tell the plane was descending so he assumed theywould be landing shortly. What he did notice was the unusual cabin of the aircraft. The lengthand the width were abundantly large. Larger than any plane he had ever been on before. Wow! hethought. This must be one of those fancy new ones…Miles Devereaux, an ordinary, working class, family man, is thrust sixty years into the dazzlingfuturistic world of 2065 Bangkok, and into a life-and-death game of chess where the players andpieces' fates depend on each player's acumen. Requiring Miles to match wits and physical skillswith an array of opponents while faced with solving the mystery of his time travel and how toreturn to his own time, ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK is a riveting adventure set in what mightvery well be our own future.ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK (Savant 2018)by Keith R.

ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK by Keith R. Rees - Excerpt #2 (This Excerpt is Family Rated) Chapter 2 – The PawnsHe left the tavern and stepped out into the busy terminal. It was still very crowded withpeople going every which way. Glancing up at the marquee, he saw that ground transportationwas just ahead. He stepped onto the crowded moving sidewalk and was whisked away in thatdirection. He saw another sign for the outside terminus. He hopped off the sidewalk and madehis way down another speedy escalator. It was longer than he imagined. It must have descendedat least ten floors. When he reached the bottom, he knew it must be the right place. Just outsidethe giant entry doors to the terminal he could see the long, sleek, tubular transports that he hadseen from the air. They came in all different sizes; there were some to accommodate manypeople and some for one or two passengers. Curling his lip, Miles uttered, "Well at least they stillhave buses and taxis."-----Keith R. Rees has been writing professionally for over 20 years. ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK, ascience fiction work, is the first installment in what is projected to become The One NightTrilogy. He has always been a fan of science fiction, particularly stories that involve time travel,and writes stories that have both realistic and human sides to them."One Night in Bangkok is a time travel adventure that science fiction fans will enjoy but I'mhoping fans of other genres as well, such as mystery, suspense and humor," says Rees. "Thetrilogy is based on time travel but at the heart of it all is a powerful story about family."ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK (Savant 2018)by Keith R.

ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK by Keith R. Rees - Excerpt #3 (This Excerpt is Family Rated) Chapter 4 – The KnightThe streets were quiet as he walked, but he could hear the faint sounds of activitysomewhere in the vicinity. It almost sounded like another open-air market or a street fair. Butthen another sound could be heard. He could hear something that sounded eerily familiar echoingdown the darkened alleys. It was eerie because he could not see it but also exciting at the sametime. What could it be? he thought to himself. The sound came closer. It was either the lowrumbling hum of an engine motor, or the low, sustained growl of a dragon. Whatever it was,Miles had a feeling it was most certainly meant to get his attention.About this Book:As he awakens on a plane, Miles Devereaux is confused, disoriented and otherwise oblivious towhat has happened to him.

He slowly pieces together the mystery of his time travel andhow he can return to his own time before time runs out. What he does not know is he only hasone night to accomplish the impossible. One night to discover. One night to survive. One night inBangkok!About the Author:I've always been a storyteller. Even before I knew I could be a writer I loved telling stories. Insummers during my college days I worked as a counselor at summer camp for kids in East Texas.Each night at bedtime in our cabin, I would sit in the middle of the floor and tell the kids sciencefiction stories about outer space. The kids were never so quiet until these times as they wouldhang on my every word. And each night after that, they would all remind me where I left off thenight before, which was a good thing because I was just making it all up as I went along!I've always been inspired by other author's stories, movies and especially music. I had the goodfortune to be able to travel in my teens. I spent my first year in college overseas as an exchangestudent on the island of Malta with my brother. After that we got to see a great deal of Europe aswell. And since then I have been able to see many fascinating places around the world. I'veobserved how other countries live and the ways of their cultures. Everywhere I go though, Ialways have some music with me and my vivid imagination.It was these experiences and my propensity to use music as my springboard to bring myimagination to life in words. At the age of twenty-six, I discovered I could write poetry. I becameobsessed with it. I could never find a pen and pad fast enough when ideas came pouring from mymind. But during these twelve years of writing poetry, I always kept actual story ideas in mind,brewing on the back burner as one might say. Some ideas I jotted own, some I just kept in myhead. And in 2007, I made the leap from poetry to novel writing. Eleven years and five novelslater, I haven't looked back. I even managed to put together two collections of my poetry duringthat time. But writing novels has become my passion.ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK is now my sixth novel and first with Savant Books andPublications. It is the first of what is to become the One Night Trilogy. Parts two and three(novels seven and eight for me) of this trilogy are already completed. And I've just begun workon number nine, which is going to be a good old fashioned ghost story.My stories are from multiple genres, including modern literature, fiction, historical fiction andnow science fiction with ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK. They are all available on Amazon.comand other popular book sites.ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK (Savant 2018)by Keith R.

THE TURTLE DANCES by Daniel S. Janik - Excerpt #1 (Family Rated)
"Chapter 1 - Peach Moon
Viewed from the middle of the bay, the night would have been pitch dark, but for the huge, round, blushing pink Hawaiian moon, resting like a big ripe peach just above the horizon. Above and behind, the sky, a black velvet blanket, was dusted with pin-point stars. Ahead, along the sandy beach, the evening trade winds rustled the long fronds of tall coconut trees growing on the far side of a sidewalk that wandered behind low mounds of cool, wet sand.
The beach was pretty much as Isla, the Green Sea Turtle, thought it should look, taste and feel from her childhood memories. Of course, it wasn’t exactly the same. There were small differences—the coarseness of the sand granules, their slightly cooler temperature, and something she couldn’t quite put her flipper on..."
Isla, a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle resting on the beach at Waikiki, notices a dance couple practicing a partner routine for a dance competition. Intrigued, she decides she, too, wants to dance, and more so, partner dance. But how to do it?
Written for adults to read aloud to their children, and youth to 16 years of age to read and enjoy. Lavishly illustrated in black and white for reader coloring opportunities.
The third in the Savant "COLOR-ME-PLEASE" children's book series.
