Posted on October 30, 2014 by Bobby Bernshausen | 0 Comments

Jason Ruder’s life is about to change forever as he learns the truth about the old muscle car in the shed.  Join Jason as he discovers the muscle car era in the new novel Metal Horses by Ron Ames.

Jason enters the muscle car era through the stories of his reclusive neighbor as she recounts the time of bell-bottoms, draft cards, and the music of the early 70s. She describes the antics of a crazy group of friends with such emotion that Jason can actually feel the insanity of street racing, and the tension caused by the Vietnam War. A misguided romance on which an Amish man and a disillusioned war veteran give their advice, adds to the calamity as the recluse fulfills a vow made long ago, and answers the question, "Do you really know who you are?"

Through humor and tragedy, Metal Horses tells a tale of civil disobedience and misguided romance in a small Pennsylvania town during the muscle car era.

Ron Allen Ames' Metal Horses is set in the last years of the muscle car era. To those who were of age during that time, this book stirs memories of crazy things that happened with cars, stunts pulled with friends, the turmoil caused by the war, and how elusive love can be. Ames also wrote the WWII novel, Vessels of the Strand.

Metal Horses is available in softcover (ISBN 978-1-62137-477-0) and eBook (ISBN 978-1-62137-528-9) from,, and This book can also be ordered from most bookstores around the United States and United Kingdom. For more information on the author or the book, please refer to the official author’s site,

When Challenge Becomes Inspiration

Posted on October 09, 2014 by Bobby Bernshausen | 0 Comments

What should you do when your home away from home is threatened? When loved ones around you feel helpless? You rise to the challenge and find a solution. Author Matt Shea is back in a new novel featuring Chase Mansfield in The Meadowdale Community Project.

Demolition crews continue to raze abandoned and condemned structures in the sleepy town of Meadowdale – a city hit hard by the sluggish economy. A once-cherished building is now the dilapidated Meadowdale Community Center (MCC), where the handicapped and mentally-challenged sort recyclable materials and create artwork from refuse that catches their eye. This prompts many to consider the MCC a burial ground for lost causes.

Things soon change when a mysterious stranger in a wheelchair arrives and befriends Chase Mansfield, an intellectually-challenged teen. When the Community Center is condemned and Chase realizes the squirrel he feeds is about to become homeless, he comes up with an ingenious idea that changes his future and the future of the community. Chase and his invention soon unite the entire city, breaking down barriers related to wealth, politics, age, mobility, and intellect.

In an age of fiction often based on witchcraft, libido, and immorality, The Meadowdale Community Project is a family-friendly story for all ages, tastes, and background.

Matt Shea is a developing author having published five books. He is greatly inspired by the writings of Andy Griffith and focuses on the common folk that comprise small towns. Matt appreciates all who take the time to read his stories, loves feedback, and offers his email address for any comments or suggestions readers have.
