NEW LINK: Coalition Against Drug Abuse…resource guide..


Addiction can take over and ruin lives no matter what the person is addicted to. However, drug and alcohol addiction are two of the most common – drugs only second to smoking. If you’re a parent, having an addiction can have a huge negative impact on your children’s lives; when you’re drunk or high, you’re not fully in control of your actions and your behavior can be incredibly damaging – if not abusive. If you believe you have an addiction, you must get help, if not for yourself, for your children. If you’re unsure, this article describes some of the signs you may be suffering from addiction and how you can seek help.

An important resource that outlines practical advice for children who have one or both parents with addictions.

The guide is on behalf of the Coalition Against Drug Abuse. I believe this to be a very important guide that offers invaluable advice.

THE SINFUL MAN~ KEITH ROMMEL’S 3RD INSTALLMENT OF THE THANATOLOGY SERIES…

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. Sunbury Press has released Keith Rommel’s 3rd installment of the Thanatology seriesThe Sinful Man

SM_FC no maskAbout the Book:

Headaches. Hunger. Pain.

Leo needs something . . . his stomach growls, but it can wait. That’s not hunger he must feed. He has to get to his next high, but without money he knows he can’t buy what he needs to sate the voice inside telling him to get more, get more.

Voices. Visions. Addiction.

No luck asking his father. His mother is in no position to help. After failing to steal the money he desperately needs, Leo must appeal to his dealer, the dangerous and infamous Saint Nick—despite the inevitable beating he’ll take for showing up empty-handed. Still, anything to keep the voices and flashbacks at bay . . .

Demons. Addiction. Death.

Leo soon learns that everything has a price—not just money for drugs, but that every choice he makes has a repercussion. Suddenly caught between a world where he can see the sins of his past and a new consciousness that he doesn’t fully understand, Leo finds himself not only chasing the dragon, but being chased by demons of a whole different kind. He must learn the finality of being past hope—all while reliving his missed opportunities for second chances—and truly come to understand that he is responsible for his own undoing before he runs out of time. After a lifetime of bad choices, this Sinful Man discovers the consequences to his actions and the mortal responsibility of exercising free will.

The rest of theThanatology Series:

Book 1The Cursed Man — soon to be a major motion picture:

Cursed Man pubThe Cursed Man, by Keith Rommel, tells the story of Alister Kunkle, a patient at Sunnyside Capable Care Mental Institution. Alister has been in seclusion for the last 25 years, having no contact with the staff or the outside world. The reason for this is that anyone who communicates with Alister dies within the day, for he is the Cursed Man and Death takes a professional interest in those unlucky enough to cross his path.

Believing him simply deranged, Dr Anna Lee, an up-and-coming young psychiatrist, has come to cure Alister. She is warned about Alister’s past and is shown evidence of previous encounters made by the skeptical or unbelieving, all of whom died, sometimes horribly. Regardless of the stories, Anna will not be dissuaded and is reluctantly allowed access to Alister. All assume her fate is sealed, but when she returns unharmed the next day, we also start to wonder about the stories.

So begins an enthralling narrative told in the past and the present as Anna attempts to learn why Alister believes he is cursed, while at the same time trying to convince him the events were not real and that in fact he is merely ill and so can be cured. Is Alister truly followed by death or is he simply mentally ill? The Cursed Man is an extremely well-written suspense horror story… I enjoyed it immensely; right up until the very end I was never sure of the outcome… Great story-telling in the tradition of Stephen King… — Booklore

Book 2The Lurking Man — a Sunbury Press bestseller:

LM_pubWhat happens after we die? Are we given choices based on how we lived our lives? It’s an age-old question pondered by just about everyone.

Author Keith Rommel dared to explore the answer by creating his newest novel The Lurking Man, a story of dark suspense that unmercifully reveals the life of a self-deluded, neglectful mother who caused irreparable damage to her family and ultimately struggles with death as much as life. It’s the second novel in his suspenseful and thrilling Thanatology series that began with the eerie, spine-tingling The Cursed Man.

Imagine Death knowing your deepest, darkest secrets and all of your private pain,” said Rommel about The The Lurking Man. “Now imagine it wants to use what it knows against you so that you bend to its will.”

In the Lurking Man, main character Cailean stands beneath a spotlight in a blinding snowstorm. She has no idea where she is or how she got there, but she senses something moving around her in the darkness outside the light.

When the ominous presence calling himself Sariel makes himself known, he declares that he is Death Incarnate and that Cailean has died. He has taken her to the Aperture, a place between the living and the dead, where he will force her to face the sins of her past in exchange for twenty-four hours of life to try and right her wrongs. But what she must do in return for this precious time is unthinkable.

“You have to go. I won’t be able to control myself. I’ve wanted you so bad for so long and after I’ve been in the cage…I can’t think straight.” He gives a guttural groan and his fist clenches on my hip.

Primitive. Primal. His need speaks to me. I tighten my grip on his neck and rock up to kiss him. He takes over. His kiss is hard and demanding.

“Mine.” His voice is raw, savage and for a moment I truly believe he may lose control.

He rules in the ring

Two years ago, Jake and Amanda were going hot and heavy. But when Jake wanted more, Amanda walked away. Jake immersed himself in mixed martial arts, living life on the edge. But that didn’t dull the pain of Amanda’s rejection-until a chance encounter throws them together.

A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn’t found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did. And then he shows up in her boardroom, hot as sin and needing help…

But can he rule her heart?

Jake is darker, sexier, and impossible to resist. As their chemistry builds, Amanda’s not sure if she can stay in control, or if she’s finally willing to let him claim her body and soul.

Excerpt

But he has. The once rough-and-tumble fighter and carpenter is now chairman of a midsize company. New furrows mark his once–smooth brow, and crinkles adorn the corners of his eyes. His shoulders are tight, his back stiff and straight. There is no hint of the easy, carefree attitude that attracted me to a cheeky kickboxing instructor at a local gym so long ago—-an attraction so strong we wound up making out in the fitness studio only seconds after the last student had walked out the door. He seems older both in appearance and at heart. But the same restlessness simmers beneath his skin. Power. Barely contained.
His mouth thins, and I wish I could take the words back. Amanda-now isn’t the same as Amanda-then. Now, I could never hurt him.
“If I’d remembered you worked here, I would have picked another firm,” he says, his voice tight. “One of the division presidents recommended the partner I was supposed to meet.”
Swallowing hard, I shrug, playing it nonchalant while inside the part of me that had always dreamed we would get back together again shrivels. “We never really talked that much about work. I don’t think you ever came by my office.” I give a tentative smile. “You’ll probably get to know me better during this case than…”

His choked grunt cuts me off, and I catch a flicker of pain in his eyes. “I don’t think…”
Oh God. He doesn’t want me on the case. And why would he? How difficult would that be? It could be years until trial.
My stomach clenches and I force my words out through a tightened throat. “Of course. I wasn’t thinking. I probably shouldn’t be involved in the case because we were…had…” I take a deep breath and steady my wavering voice. “It could be considered a personal conflict, because if you were unhappy with our service at the end of the case, you might allege I wasn’t able to properly represent you because we…we…”
“Broke up,” he says gently and, from the softening of his brow, clearly relieved.
“Yes.”
Tension eases from his body, loosening his shoulders. “I think that’s for the best.”
My heart sinks to the floor and then falls through the fifteen stories that is Farnsworth & Tillman, shattering into a million pieces in the concrete parking garage. Rejected. All over again.
Years of training enable me to remain professional, while inside I crumble. “I’ll have to ask the managing partner to take me off the case and find a replacement associate. It means you’ll have to come back another day. Is that a problem? I feel bad inconveniencing you.”
Jake shakes his head and his beautiful hair brushes over his neck. “No, that’s okay. I got the papers a week or two ago, so I think I have some time. I don’t understand the legal stuff.”
Falling back into my comfort zone, my heart rate slows. “I’ll take a look at the documents for you, just so you don’t miss any deadlines.”
He opens the backpack resting in a chair beside his leather jacket and hands me a file folder. His finger inadvertently brushes over mine during the exchange, sending zings of electricity straight to my core. Nothing has changed.
