New Arrival for March

Adam K. Nelson





Author: Adam K. Nelson lives in Springfield, Missouri with his family. Adam has authored two books: Learning To Live and A Night with St. Nick. Both of Adam Nelson’s book are available at Amazon.com.







Title: Learning To Live
Genre: Fantasy
Book: Ryan Sterling is a college senior driving home for winter break. The drive is ordinarily uneventful, but not today. He watches in horror as an unknown aircraft causes an explosion so massive that the above ground world is destroyed. Ryan escapes, but he wakes up alone, severely burned, and lying on the basement floor of his parents' home. Left with only delirious dreams and memories of his family and girlfriend, Sara, Ryan is forced to confront the despair of being the only apparent survivor, his lack of faith in God, and the fear that whatever -- or whomever -- caused the explosion will soon return to finish the job. Over the year to come, Ryan must rediscover hope and conquer his fear so that he can truly survive and thrive in the new reality of a devastated planet. Now that Ryan has lost the world, can he gain his own soul?

Title: A Night with St. Nick
Genre: Fiction/Children
Book: Jimmy is a ten-year-old boy who has grown up too fast. None of his friends believe in Santa, and it is no longer cool for him to believe either. Even though Jimmy saw Santa one Christmas when he was young, he still refuses to accept him. In an effort to restore some of Jimmy's faith, Santa Claus orchestrates a special night that will not easily be forgotten. He answers some of the big questions that Jimmy has about how Santa works, but, most important, Jimmy learns the true meaning of Christmas. Will Jimmy be able to believe after A Night with St. Nick?
