Please join us with authors Jan Domagala, Kevin “Kajeman” Johnson, and Peter Koutsoukos.
Jan Domagala, author of “Ronin” – In the first of this thrilling sci-fi adventure series we are introduced to Kurt Stryder., a Special Forces soldier assigned to Col Sec, Colonial Security. Kurt is changed due to his volunteering for an experimental program he was told would change the military forever. This puts him in the path of an enemy that will stop at nothing to obtain what they consider to be the key to controlling the galaxy. With this new threat, Kurt has to decide whether to remain a pawn of his government or to become a soldier with no master, a Ronin.
Kevin “Kajeman” Johnson, author of “Insufficient Postage: A Week in the Life of a New Letter Carrier” – How does a letter get lost in the mail for years or decades? Is the check really in the mail? Do we pay too much to mail a letter? Insufficient Postage is an insightful lighthearted view of a Long Island post office. It opens up the inner going-ons of the post office and answers some of these questions.
Peter Koutsoukos, author of “Jailhouse Confidential” – These are not typical jailhouse stories. They are about events inside Rikers experienced through the eyes and ears of a correction officer who made it to the end of his twenty-year career. The uniqueness of this book is that it all happened in the 1970s. It wasn’t like it is today. Back then, we were the judge, jury and I use the word executioner, lightly. We never killed, only punished, when officers were attacked. There was always a need to show who was in charge. We could never allow inmates to think they were running things, the way it seems in today’s era. These tales are not so much about the inmate, but more about the mind of the officers and the different ways they coped, or couldn’t. Eyebrows will sometimes be raised. You will laugh, and at times lose your breath. The officer can gain your respect, and in an instant lose it. In the end, you will realize the job is not for everyone, and have a deeper understanding of how difficult it was to cope with it all. Guaranteed, you’ve never heard stories like these before.
