Author Good News and Freebie Alert: The Yellow Bar and Arts Deco by John Falch

I received an email from author, John Falch, sharing some good news.  I like good news.  Anyway, his book, The Yellow Bar, is a quarter finalist in the Amazon Break Out Novel Awards. Putting it in the top 5%.  Yay!  I'm happy for him.  I enjoyed The Yellow Bar (my review and interview, here) and hoping it gets in the top 5 books so he'll get a publishing contract.  Best wishes Mr. Falch! 

Also, the author has written a novelette that is available for FREE this weekend, Arts Deco.  Go HERE or click on the image below to check it out and give it a review.  I just got my copy and looking forward to reading it.  Feel free to share the promo.

I must admit I'm not crazy about the book cover but like people say, "Don't judge a book by it's cover".  :)

Art Silver loves his wannabe actress wife, Kitty, so he consents to rent a penthouse apartment in the heart of old Hollywood while their home in the suburbs is being built. Large, glamorous and with a storied history, the place seems to be the perfect spot for their tenth anniversary party. That is, until Kitty hosts a seance-gone-wrong and inadvertently opens a portal to the netherworld. Now long-dead celebrities are walking the halls. Far from being scary, Art finds that live-in spooks come with some amazing benefits. But is it too much of a good thing? And what's the ghost of JFK doing here with his wife behind closed doors?

Ghosts. Hollywood. 1976. What's not to love?

If war came home and sat on your doorstep, what would you do?

Meet the Reynaldos, a simple country family living happily on their farm in 1940s American Philippines. Good luck has bounced their way and the family is climbing out of rural poverty to become successful entrepreneurs. Life is swell until the Japanese invade and make them servants in their own house. As told by their youngest son, Pepot, The Yellow Bar recounts the almost forgotten history of the Japanese occupation of Manila, Philippines, and of a family that survives it through quick wit, blind faith, and a pinch of dark humor.
