PRESS RELEASE - Trust Me, the Devil Said

Pagosa Springs, Colorado (March 2007) - What is this book about, why was it written, and does it have a purpose?

Trust Me, the Devil Said is the sequel to Cloud Hidden, Whereabouts Unknown. Quoting from the back cover:

"Renee Fuller is back and she's as evil as ever. Christina's phone rings. Hawk is calling the first meeting of the family crime-fighting team. It's time to help Tom avenge the death of his parents and the sexual assault he suffered--all at the hands of Renee. The team? Hawk, a Comanche Indian; Mac Dakota, his ex-Navy SEAL partner; ex-sheriff Thomas Day and three alien sisters--Toni, Christina and Josy--with shape-shifting abilities and special gifts. These alien sisters from the planet Gareth informally married and had children with these men and that makes the team . . . a family affair. As Renee works her evil ways into the Devil-worship group Temple Dambala, the list of 'who-wants-to-kill-Renee' contines to grow. We know she must get her due, but only the Devil knows who did the deed, and he won't tell . . . unless you read, Trust Me, the Devil Said."

The second novel in this series was written to seek justice for Tom, to bring closure, and to provide honest answers about Religious Satanism and Devil Worship.

Victoria Rose does extensive research as a student of the human condition and weaves this knowledge as threads throughout her novels. She hones her writing skills to enrapture and titillate your mind. "She writes with the wild imagination of a Rod Sterling, the down-to-earth detail of a John Steinbeck and the sensuality of a Zalman King. This makes for a heady concoction indeed," writes J.D. McGuinness, author of The Famous Fakes.

Trust Me, the Devil Said is her seventh novel, and like many Sci/Fi fantasy writers, her stories have a serious purpose and a powerful message.

PRESS RELEASE - Ladies, Are You Lost? Options for Women in Unhealthy Relationships



LADIES, ARE YOU LOST?

Pagosa Springs, Colorado (March 2006) - What is this book about, why was it written, who is the author, and does it have a purpose?

The book is about women and how we can tend to lose our sense of "self" and personal identity when we’re involved in a relationship. It’s about the author’s personal struggle to arrive at a solid sense of self, working toward freedom and away from addictions.

Why was it written? It was written for women in unhealthy relationships who feel they have no options. The author was told by friends that there were stories in her life which might help guide and inspire. Along that line, other loving women have contributed their stories to encourage and help. "We are just average women reaching out a hand to let women in unhealthy relationships know that they are not alone."

Who is the author? . . . Helena Gunther and Victoria Rose, her alter ego–the writer within. This is her first nonfiction book, and she has written it to tell other women where she saw opportunities and what she did about them, how she faces her fears, and uses her audacity to move from the negative into the positive.

Does this book have a purpose? Yes, a very definite purpose. It provides a brief set of clues to help women get back on track and take control of their lives. If they are serious about change, want a better life, and follow the ten clues, she guarantees they won’t be disappointed. It’s not easy but it would lessen the value, if it was. As education is a key to improving one’s life, any profits from the sale of this book go into a special education fund for women working to change.

How serious are you about changing?

"WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?. . . your identity (the real you) has been lost or stolen, and we need to go to war to get you back. I use the concept of war because war is serious business and we are serious. Right?

Richard Marcinko, in his book Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior-A Commando's Guide to Success, writes: "Life is a struggle for survival, for success, and for dominance. Life is war." If this is so, then let us prepare for war.

Somewhere, in each of us, beats a warrior's heart. During our time together, I am going to provide your warrior mind with ten clues to finding you. I will list them briefly and later go into more detail. Once you have discovered or recovered yourself, you will no longer need our guidance, but you will need to protect this "identity," as it can be lost or stolen . . . again.

The focus of this book is not healthy relationships; the focus is finding you. Once you have a stronger grasp on who you are, the opportunities for a healthy relationship will materialize. Financial independence is an important part of this struggle, and that is what the "options" part of this book is about.

THE ROSE SISTERS TRILOGY

The Rose Sisters Trilogy
Victoria Rose
Outskirts Press, Denver, CO
www.outskirtspress.com
ISBM: 1598001663, $15.95, 399 pp, 2005

This novel is the complete trilogy: Christina, Toni and Josy - Sci-Fi/Fantasy Romances.

Former Navy SEALs Mac Dakota and Hawk, a Comanche Indian, plus Sheriff Thomas Day are the chosen men who enjoy the unique sexual attitudes of these alien women. This is a romance novel, but it is also much more.

Christina and Josy tell us of their culture.

REVIEW:
I found the story to be uniquely different from the standard run-of-the-mill, formula-type novels, as it does not fit into one particular genre. It is really multi-genre, and if I had to classify it, I'd select science fiction/new wave: science fiction because it's about alien shape-shifting women and new wave because it deals with the softer sciences-psychology, ecology, sociology, overpopulation, religion. However, there are strong facets of romance, mystery and erotica.

I can't say this is a fast-paced read because there are technical, historical, and philosophical elements which, if you want to learn something from the book, you need to slow down to absorb, such as the physics of light, sexual anatomy, historical facts about the Comanche Indians. Her style of writing is smooth. I feel her characters come to life, and there are elements of humor. Her theme throughout is strong and clear.

In telling Mac about her culture, Christina said, "Wars . . . why would we have wars? We are all one community working to care for our planet and our future generations. I'm sorry, but because your people do not understand that they are one community, they are not caring for your living planet very well. Actually, they are slowly killing it out of ignorance, greed, and selfish desires for power and control. Why would intelligent people want to drop bombs and make holes in the living organism that feeds them? Why would they want to pollute the air they breathe and the water they drink? My sisters and I have concluded that the level of human intelligence among the leaders of your countries is not very high. A simple ant colony has more intelligence."

This novel would appeal to adult readers who are looking for something different-an educational, fun, thought-provoking story. The climax is not as dramatic as some might like and there's a significant issue which was not resolved, which leads you to believe that there will be a sequel.

In The Rose Sisters Trilogy, the author has combined the three short novels: Christina, Toni, and Josy. Her latest nonfiction book titled, Ladies, Are You Lost? - Options for Women in Unhealthy Relationships will be out in March 2006, and the sequel to this trilogy, Trust Me, the Devil Said, published by June 2006.

ISBN: 1598001493, $9.95, 156 pp, 2005

This is the first book in The Rose Sisters Trilogy.

The planet Gareth is being destroyed as three sisters prepare to leave. They agree to travel in one body--Christina's. She takes the soul-spirits of Toni and Josy into herself, reduces her body physics to light waves, and travels at the speed of light through space. She arrives in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado via sunbeam and materializes on the naked back of sunbathing Mac Dakota.

Christina meets Mac, but there's more to this story than romance. Gareth was an older, more evolved planet, and Christina tells us of her culture: Why no governments, no religions, no doctors, hospitals, crime or jails. Why all males were hermaphrodites. Why their attitudes about sex and love were/are unique. If you want to know too, please read this book.
