This is a gripping story of one man who experiences terrible tragedy and decides to take fate and destiny head on by daily standing at attention in front of the palace gate of the dictator Antoine.

This is a thriller with unbelievable twists and turns. It’s also a work of literary fiction with memorable themes, unexpected reveals, and deep symbolism. One reader even called it a “modern-day tall tale.” And that it is. Small snippets of fantasy emerging out of the stories the protagonist writes in protest of the dictatorship.

This was originally a short play which won several awards in Kuala Lumpur in 2013. Now it’s a gripping tale that you won’t want to put down.

My Debut Novel – Now only 99 cents through July 20!

Hey all,

If you haven’t had a chance to read my debut novel from December 2012, it’s only 99 cents on Kindle through July 20.

Beauty Rising is it’s name. It brings together two very unlikely people into a relationship that no one could have ever predicted – a 40ish over-weight, yet-to-grow-up American man and a beautiful, young, troubled Vietnamese girl.

As one reviewer called it, it’s a late coming of age story about culture, family, and the past which some people can never get away from.

Martin Kinney travels to Vietnam to bury the ashes of his late father – an abusive Vietnam War Vet.  His wallet is stolen, which sucks him into the Vietnamese culture far more than he ever would have predicted.

My Phuong, the Vietnamese girl, has a secret past she ran away from. She spends her nights on the seedy side of town, just trying to survive. When she becomes the mistress of a local Vietnamese politician, she realizes how trapped she has become.

How will Martin and My Phuong ever meet? And what explosive ending is waiting for them?

Pick up Beauty Rising for 99 cents and find out!  It’s a page-turner told in first person narration from two points of view.

Grab it cheap before it’s gone! Beauty Rising Here!

Limited Time 99 cent Reads for your New Kindle

We know that Santa has delivered a lot of new Kindles recently, well now it’s time to stock on some excellent reads to get you started. My first two novels, Beauty Rising and The Recluse Storyteller are on sale for only 99 cents through December 31. Read the descriptions below and click the links to read reviews.

 


On Sale: December 25 – December 31, my second novel, The Recluse Storyteller, only $0.99 on Kindle. 4.6 stars with 33 reviews on Amazon.

18454126

The stories haunt Margaret every waking moment, but they are anything but random. A fractured view Michael Cheevers’ red hat through a discreetly cracked door sends her off on adventure. A glimpse of the Johnson twins from apartment 2D transports her mind to the lonely hill on a Midwestern prairie in 1887. The regular letters from Reverend Davies bring her to the brink of exhaustion as she stares intensely into the heart of war, deep in the jungle of Vietnam.

Margaret is not insane, at least not in a clinical sense. She’s like a midnight raccoon, painfully aware of her surroundings, gleaning crumbs of information at every turn. Her eyes peer incessantly in the night, stealing glances of the neighbors through partially opened doors. But the tales she weaves were not meant to merely hold empty court to the receptive dead air of her apartment. Her stories were meant to embolden the lives of the inhabitants of that drab apartment block because her story is also their story–and everything would be different if they could only hear the prophetic words of the rambling recluse.

On Sale: December 25 – December 31, my debut novel, Beauty Rising, only $0.99 on Kindle. 4.4 stars with 84 reviews on Amazon.

 

Beauty Rising Mark W Sasse“My heart sank. I dumped my father’s ashes in the heart of communist Vietnam – over a thousand miles from the death of his comrades – over a thousand miles from the smile of that girl. How could I have been so stupid?”

Only the bumbling, overweight, thirtyish, stay-at-home Martin Kinney could have mistakenly flubbed his dying father’s request with such gusto. This thousand mile mistake awakens the ghosts of long-held family secrets and puts Martin on a fateful course with an unlikely romantic interest – a young, beautiful, yet troubled Vietnamese woman named My Phuong.

With its cross-cultural setting and unlikely romance, the 61,000 word novel Beauty Rising creates a powerful, unique voice in today’s literature. In a swift-moving, dialogue-driven prose which is funny, honest, tragic and unpredictable, Beauty Rising explores the depths of culture, family, and love as the Vietnam War, a generation removed, continues to hang on the periphery of society, cursing families and causing destruction.
