Rachel's Painting

Artist Rachel Walpole - "Hey! I usually post drawings but I wanted to post a painting this time. I finished this today, and it was a concept painting for a flying whale in our game we're making in my university. I tried to influence the painting style from RHADs, I really love his clouds and I find his lighting and colours incredibly inspiring! Could I have feedback on my own painting? What could I do to improve it? I posted the original concept sheet for the designs too so you can see the design better!" #art #digitalart #artist #freelancetalents #design #freelance_talents

Alec March's grandfather was the owner of an idyllic Connecticut farm that had through the eons become a sanctuary for animals both large and small. This year Alec's annual summer visit was marred by something very, very, different. Like electricity in the air, an overwhelming, powerful, all pervasive FEAR gripped the Lot and all of its inhabitants. Suddenly Alec was called to arms with a motley band of animals to defend a way of life and save the Lot from dark and evil forces. Could a young boy with the aid of a woodchuck, a skunk, a raccoon and a deermouse save the Lot?

Featured Novel - Countdown to Death (2015) by Bryan Cassiday

Haunted by self-loathing, Ethan Carr quits the Los Angeles Police Department after he accidentally shoots to death an innocent boy on one of his assignments. Years later, he sets up shop as a private investigator and is hired by Richard Herbert to protect him from being assassinated for twenty-four hours until he meets his son. Herbert is on the lam from his employer US Cyber Command at the National Security Agency campus in Fort Meade, Maryland.

He tells Carr he wants to reveal top secret intel to the media about a computer program Cybercom has invented that can infect and disable permanently any computer in the world. He is convinced the Equation Group, a shadowy arm of the NSA, is going to have him killed before he can reveal his intel to the media.

Carr is reluctant to take on Herbert as a client, believing the US government might consider Herbert a traitor for publicizing top secret national security information. Carr decides to take the case because he doesn't believe the government has the right to assassinate its own citizens on American soil, which Herbert claims that they are about to do to him and that they have done to others.

Carr's battle to keep himself and Herbert alive in a web of lies, cabals, and assassination plots that emanate from the highest seats of power becomes a battle for his tortured conscience, which is not only consumed with guilt from his erstwhile job but racked by qualms about his decision to protect Herbert, who could be a traitor to his country.

Such Great Heights (2013 Novel)

Such Great Heights by Chris Cole 

One part Gatsby, one part John Green, and one part Lana Del Rey... The perfect summer cocktail.

"The easy life is sometimes the hardest life of all." The words rang false to seventeen-year-old Charlie Middle when he first heard his cousin Maisey utter them, between sips of her gold-flaked martini. But by the end of his summer in California, they were among the truest
words he had ever heard. 

Such Great Heights is a retelling of The Great Gatsby, by way of Social Network and Less Than Zero. Author, Chris Cole, puts a millennial wardrobe on the Jazz Age classic, mashing up the styles and imagery of Brett Easton Ellis, F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Green into a new and timely voice.

We are offered a ringside seat for the impossible love story of kid billionaire Joss Stember and heiress Maisey Landing. Told in heartbreaking detail through the eyes of Charlie, we watch these young lovers as they fight against the ceaseless waves of the past in a passionate attempt to make their way toward the shores of the present. Battling their own demons, and the demons that seem to prey upon them at every turn.

Through the lens of recently graduated Midwest teen, Charlie Middle, we are afforded a rarefied glimpse into a lifestyle that is usually kept under lock and key. Charlie's innocent summer internship in Silicon Valley quickly morphs into a crucible of excess and intrigue amidst the one percent of the one percent--fraught with star-crossed lovers, million dollar cars, 24-hour parties, high-tech billionaires and a pageantry of excess that would have put Sodom and Gomorrah to shame, let alone East and West Egg. 

Such Great Heights is a novel for the Instagram generation, a generation for whom nostalgia is a stylish accessory and instant messages are sacred texts.
