Kurt D. Stradtman, author of Am I The Person My Mother Warned Me About?, is proud to announce the release of his latest novel, Transcendence. A fictional novel surrounding The Book of Raziel, gay witches, and unblocking inner emotional blockages. The storyline follows Leo and his twin sister Jade who have drifted apart over the past several years. A break up between Leo and his long time partner, Eric, causes him to visit his sister in Jacksonville, Florida, a decision that will end up changing their lives forever. After meeting a strange woman, whose later revealed to be a Master Magician witch, bring together five complete strangers destined to make up a secret coven to protect The Book of Transcendence, a book said to be forged in the heavens and sent to this plane containing all the knowledge of the universe. A book based off of the Sefer Raziel HaMalakh, better known as The Book of Raziel, the book written in the heavens and given to Adam when he left The Garden of Eden The coven will have to risk their own life to prevent the book from falling into the hands of the Dark Ones. The five strangers must first learn to battle their own internal demons before learning that love and family can be strongest defense against the darkness.

Stradtman has known it was his destiny to be an author since he was a child, but didn't realize his destiny including helping others through holistic life coaching. Growing up in a coastal haven of Georgia, known simply as "The Golden Isles" (St Simons Island, GA), kept Stradtman in the closet longer than he wanted. Having grown up in a conservative town and in a conservative family, Stradtman was forced to remain in the closet, eventually urging him to move to Atlanta, GA at 20, where he felt that he would be able to live his life more honestly and openly. Finding his transition to the big city separated him from the things that mattered most (his sister and the ocean), he decided to move back, and made the journey on Thanksgiving, giving him even even more to be thankful for. After coming back to the Golden Isles, Stradtman decided it was time to come out of the closet, knowing his conservative family and friends could possibly disown him. Stradtman was met with a little resistance at first, but was welcomed with open arms by both his family and friends. Coming out was the greatest decision that he could have ever made, allowing him to breathe freely and live his life openly with no secrets. Stradtman fell in love with the holistic approach to medicine while working in Chiropractic Marketing, and decided realized his destiny, in addition to writing, was to become a Holistic Life Coach. His main goal to unblock peoples spiritual and emotional pathways, but wants to focus on helping people come out of the closet, whether they are 20 and thinking about it, or 60 and just did.

Stradtman knows the sad truth that not all coming out stories are success stories, but he wants to remind all that it gets better. Stradtman is an advocate for the HRC and anti-bullying. Stradtman, in writing Transcendence, pulled his ideas from dreams, personal experience, and real people in his life. He is excited about the main character, Leo, a witch, being openly gay and in his mid-thirties. A great relief from the ever popular young adult vampire market. There is a ever growing romance between Leo and Addision as the story develops, but because of a recent break up between Leo and his ex-partner Eric, Leo has a lot of apprehension about the idea of a relationship again, thus developing a climatic relationship building throughout the novel.

Transcendence will be available to all 11.29.13, but is available for early order by visiting [] or [] eBooks will be available in December, 2013. Kurt may be contacted at

Press Release: Gay Love in New SciFi Adventure

In Sons of Taldra, even an alien invasion can’t stop Telius from marrying the man he loves.

Author Duane Simolke is slowly posting the first several chapters of that novel at the site Goodreads.Com, with plans to later release it as an eBook.

Many of the characters first appeared in Simolke’s book Degranon: A Science Fiction Adventure, which received a StoneWall Society Pride in the Arts award. However, Sons of Taldra is a stand-alone novel.

The blog [DuaneSimolke.Com] features links to those works, Gertrude Stein sites, gay movie reviews, the free comedy eBook Fat Diary, the gay love poem Home, and much more.

Simolke lives in West Texas, which provided the setting for one of his most popular books, The Acorn Stories. Kirkus Reviews wrote that “A lush tangle of small-town life branches out in this engrossing collection of short stories.”
