Viral Xgressions: Tainted Souls, Hacked Spirits, Wretched Deals, and Flatlines (Whiskey House Trilogy Book 2)

It is no mystery that Lazarus, Alabama truly needs Jesus. But with what went down at the whiskey house last spring, one would never hesitate to ask the question, Why would Jesus even consider coming to Lazarus…period? Lazarus Police Department and Hawthorne County Sheriff s Office had their hands full with the cataclysm at the Hawthorne County Whiskey House. After having to deal with false prophets and violent death, a serious toll was taken on the Lazarus authorities and leadership. So by now all citizens of Lazarus and Hawthorne County definitely know, it s not just an urban legend. If you choose to enter the whiskey house, if you should ever come out, then your life will go south. It doesn t matter if a person is good natured, has good intentions, or is drama free. Passage through the whiskey house produced a magnitude of tainting in the life of every bold soul who braved its interior. So welcome to present day Lazarus, Alabama. Back in the spring, if a person did not get murdered, violated, or incarcerated, they were immensely mentally impacted. Or in some regards, they may have been stricken with some sort of physical ailment. Either way, Lazarus and Hawthorne County have limped into the fall. And with severe budget issues, lack of leadership, and open wounds, one would have to assume that there would be many challenging days ahead for the area. Apparently, most people don t seem to get it. When things happen in Lazarus, they occur at cataclysmic levels. If it seems like a curse, feels like a curse, and impacts like a curse, it s probably a curse. However, in this day and age of viral occurrences, the last thing Lazarus needs is more transgressions running rampant through the city bearing semblance to that of an incurable virus. Viral Xgressions (pronounced transgressions ) is the second book of the Whiskey House Trilogy whose first book, Curse of the Whiskey House set the tone of the trilogy with a thunderous boom. Viral Xgressions picks right up where its predecessor left off with non- stop action, front to back drama, and edge of your seat anticipation of what s taking place on the next page. AT WHAT POINT DO YOU SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND FORGET ABOUT FRIENDSHIPS, RELATIONSHIPS, AND PERCEPTIONS…ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE IMPEDING THE PATH OF JUSTICE? Welcome back to Hawthorne County.

Jesus once saved Lazarus, but some wonder if the City of Lazarus is beyond saving. This historic Bible Belt homestead located in Hawthorne County, Alabama has a population of 45,000 and is nationally renowned for its fine whiskey. Lazarus, a lively city that was once a resting spot for the Buffalo Soldiers, has a lot of heritage, history, and religion. Maybe too much of each.

The Hawthorne County Whiskey Stop, the city’s most profitable tourist attraction, gets thousands of customers per year from in and out of town. But the Hawthorne County Whiskey House, its counterpart, is anything but good and sacred. Just ask the beloved Mayor of Lazarus, Samuel Justice, who has enough skeletons in the closet to fill the local cemetery. The level of treachery and mayhem spawned within the whiskey house is uncharted despite the fact that Reverend Jackson Jones, the pastor of the Central Baptist Church, owns it. Many believe that a lot of spirits are uneasy and that a curse lingers around Lazarus and Hawthorne County because of the crass circumstances that surround the whiskey house. There’s an old saying around Lazarus, “Once you enter the whiskey house, if you should ever come out, your life goes south.” There is also an eerie prophecy tied to the whiskey house that no one wants to acknowledge; they keep quiet about it hoping it will just disappear. Detective Brock Taylor is the only hope in saving Lazarus from total destruction. But will he be able to extinguish the curse and bring happiness back to the lives that have been maimed by the misgivings at the whiskey house? Or will he be another victim of the devastating curse? This time, even Jesus may not want anything to do with Lazarus…

Rock and Fire - Love Poetry from the Core offers mature, realistic, fantasy, blunt, and hard-line scribes dealing with love in all shapes, forms, and fashions. This edgy, comprehensive lyrical package (for grown folks only) covers the spiritual, emotional, romantic, physical, and mental aspects of love. As human beings, during our nonstop effort to evolve toward a higher degree of existing, we all go through several phases where we expose ourselves to different elements. In our valiant attempt to achieve, realize, and deliver this thing called love ; love itself breaks us down and often has us indirectly touching the outer limits of every facet of the subject as they pertain to happiness, anger, arousal, and despair. Love is real. It sometimes prompts us to engage in real things whether good, bad, or ugly. In order to grow, we have to acknowledge each event as it materializes into its fullest effect. Whether we want to attest to it or not, every situation encountered dealing with love gives all the signs and/or symbols we need in order to grow. Love, or what we think is love, can enter us into challenging situations in which we have no business being, but we still have to use the experience as a learning tool in order to advance in life. Some of us confuse love with lust. Many of us strongly know the difference and still allow the lusting to run its course. After our mind becomes clear again, we tend to ask for forgiveness and assume that our contrition in asking for it will yield coverage until of course the next spell of temptation prompts lusting again. In encountering love issues, it matters not whether we re saved, lost, found, anointed, or appointed…as long as we live, love will expose itself and expose us at one point in time or another. But, spiritual connectivity is the ultimate factor in coping with love s perils. As love rubs, punches, bites, and stimulates, it has a track record of mastering us as we attempt to master it. Our saving grace is us having faith to hold on as God works, continuously displaying mercy upon us as we progress. Rock and Fire promises to cast the reader deeply into compromising situations, revealing obvious and in some cases cavalier hints and clues as to the true direction of each poem. Nonetheless, pleasure, pain, happiness, and sadness are just a few of the feelings realized when rocked with the fire of the sizzling words contained within this book! Again, grown folks only!
