Day 28 of #scrypthalloween shows a promo book we did for @homemadedelish called CREATE IT, PLATE IT, STYLE IT, EAT IT, LOVE IT. It had a handful of Roberta’s recipes and even though it is no longer available in print, her status on local and national television, radio and more has followers wanting a full cookbook soon. Make sure to follow her for all her fun adventures in food, drink, and lifestyle.
Day 25 of #scrypthalloween shows my first children’s book A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS. I wrote this story for my daughter, Lana, and it quickly became a reader favorite. With outstanding watercolor artwork by @dpipito it brought my writing into a whole new genre.
Available at lulu.com, Amazon, and B&N in print and digital…
official description: When a little girl finds herself a long way from home, she must help her new Eskimo friends to rid their land of the Hiccups, miniscule little creatures that are more of an annoyance than anything. From award winning author, Rick Pipito, the story is aimed for a young female audience, but can be enjoyed by all. With art by Dan Pipito, this heart warming tale will inspire young readers to never give up hope and put their best thoughts forward.
Day 16 of #scrypthalloween looks at my short story ALIEN ENCOUNTERS. The cover photo is a known public domain work that I had some fun editing. It’s connected to one of the biggest alien conspiracies of all time, which is perfect for representing what’s in the pages….
official description: A phone call from a friend leaves you frantic. He claimed to have uncovered a conspiracy that could get him killed. His final words were, “I’ve seen them. We aren’t alone,” right before the line went dead. Whoever intercepted the call may now have you in their sight. Delve deeper into the mysteries established in the novel “Planet ATE”.
Alien Encounters is available in print at lulu.com. On Amazon in digital as well as Barnes and Noble as part of the Beyond Human Trilogy print edition
Day 15 of #scrypthalloween takes a look at my novel PLANET ATE. With a dry erase board for the cover art by @dpipito this book delves deep into #conspiracy . I had to research a great deal of the theories out there to bring this story to life, and it was some of the most fun research I’ve ever done…
official description: Throughout the ages human history has held many unsolved mysteries. Why were we created? Were we a product of evolution? Were we created by God’s hand? Or is the answer more complex? When a creature as ancient as the universe itself targets earth for destruction, the truth must be revealed. Enter the A.T.E., a group of government agents dedicated to uncovering that, which has been hidden for so long.
But by looking into past UFO and alien conspiracies, they may not be prepared to deal with truths that will provide proof of our real origins. An extinction event, a Biblical hero, a pilot lost at sea, an artist, and a founding father are only some who held clues to the overall puzzle. Will humanity solve it in time to stop the threat from above?
Available in print or digital at lulu.com and on Amazon as well as part of the Beyond Huma trilogy at Barnes and Noble website.
Day 10 of #scrypthalloween looks at my short story DEMONIC ENTITIES. The cover was a blend of pics taken by @homemadedelish of our active fire pit and then altered to have hidden things such as faces and dancing sprites. The longer you look at it the more you see….
official description: You pray, but something within you screams out. Your conscience flees, leaving you alone with your vices. No longer can you control your actions as the evil emerges. The demon has arrived, and none are safe. This short story follows the events in the novel “Devil’s Dessert.” The demons of the 7 deadly sins aren’t killed that easily.
Book is available in print at lulu.com or as part of the Pandora’s Chaos trilogy at Amazon and Barnes and Noble sites.
Day 8 of #scrypthalloween spotlights my short story GHOSTLY HAUNTINGS. The cover picture was taken in a local brewery’s kitchen and @dpipito merged the steam with faces of people to resemble escaping spirits. The graphic novel version of this brought in artists from around the world including Japan and The United Kingdom…..
official description: You’re speaking with your grandfather. It seems like forever since you have last seen him, but your conversation reminds you of being a child again. Then it dawns on you. Your grandfather has been dead for years. As you focus your eyes on him, he vanishes. His absence forces a feeling of dread as your hair stands on end. Available in print at www.lulu.com or as part of the Pandora’s Chaos trilogy at Amazon and Barnes and Noble
Day 5 of #scrypthalloween takes a look at my novel BONES AT BREAKFAST. This book proved to be more of a challenge to write than the prior two because I felt limited by the subject. I thought it was difficult to make it feel grounded, but then decided that by explaining the origins of mythology and fairy tales I could make it work. It became my easiest book to write. @dpipito did this cover art (sans text) to keep with the theme of the trilogy…….
official description: Gordon Lightcap and his team are caught in an uneasy alliance. By working alongside Russian General, Alexander Putski, they hope to stop the forces that Cain left in his wake. Unbeknownst to them however, is the fact that Cain is still alive. In his new form, he is an even greater threat than before and one step closer to his goal. #werewolf #werewolves #novel #novels #eternalhungersaga #scryptpublishing #book
