For bounty hunters they're oddly inept, and a young woman in their company is leaving enigmatic drawings wherever they go. As they plunge deeper into the Exilwald, Kristan follows. He discovers the drawings symbolize the Gemeta Stone, an ancient family talisman seized by Daazna but now in the little band's possession.With the Stone's protection, Kristan might stand a chance against Daazna. He could regain his birthright and his honor. But to obtain the Stone, he must reveal his true identity and risk the one thing he has left...his life.

Now available from J.K.Publishing is the paranormal romance A Call to Heaven by author Jo Kessel.
The author has taken a few minutes out of her busy schedule for a Q&A about her newest novel.
I’ve loved writing since I was a little girl. I didn’t just enjoy writing stories at school – I was always writing them at home too, letting my imagination run riot. When I became a journalist for my ‘day job’ it was like I wasn’t working at all because I enjoyed it so much. And then a friend of mine in the UK (also a journalist) got a two-book deal with a major publisher from out of nowhere and that made me think: “I wonder if I could do that too?” And so I started to write my first novel…
What was your first book/story published?
Lover in Law was my first published novel and actually, at the moment in both the US and the UK it’s still my bestselling book! I’m hoping that my current release A Call to Heaven will do better still, because this one is definitely the one that’s most special to me.
What inspired you to write A Call to Heaven?
My mother (who sadly died way too young) came to me in a dream a couple of years ago. In that dream she gave me the premise for A Call to Heaven as well as its title. It was the most brilliant and inspiring way to come up with an idea and I really hope I’ve done my Mom proud.
What character in A Call to Heaven is the most/least like you, and in what ways?
I identify with the lead female character Amy in this book, but she really isn’t anything like me. How we’re similar is in our love for our lost mothers and how we’d do anything to be able to speak to them again. Amy’s also a great mom and I like to think that I am too. After that, Amy’s nothing like me. She married a man so odious that I don’t think I could have stayed with him. She’s also a great cook whilst I, by contrast, am woefully incompetent in the kitchen!
What is your favorite part in A Call to Heaven?

|Mill Creek Ent.; 1038 minutes; $14.98; Amazon|
Now available on DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment is Strange Things: 11 Movie Collection, featuring eleven weird flicks from the 1980s on three discs.
As you can tell by the title, the release is taking advantage of the critically acclaimed Netflix horror series Stranger Things; though the cover art represents the film Pulse, which is on the first disc in the set.
The films in the set includes:
Pulse (1988; 91 minutes; PG-13) - A forgotten horror gem starring a young Joey Lawrence as a kid who travels to Los Angeles to spend his vacation with his father and stepmother in their suburban home, which happens to be occupied by a vengeful electric pulse.
Spacehunter: Adventure In The Forbidden Zone (1983; 90 minutes; PG) - A campy science fiction adventure that was originally released in 3D in the early 80s. The plot, dialogue, and acting is pretty horrible. However, it has some cool sets and costumes.
|"Spacehunters: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone"|
Krull (1983; 121 minutes; PG) - Considered a flop in 1983, the science fiction fantasy is now considered a cult classic. The plot involves the planet "Krull" being invaded by the "Beast" and it's "Slayers" in a mountain-shape spaceship called the Black Fortress.
My Mom's a Werewolf (1989; 88 minutes; PG) - This horror-comedy became popular when it was aired countless times on Showtime in the early 1990s. The plot involves a housewife turning into a werewolf after having a brief affair.
|"My Mom's A Werewolf"|
