Unable to find solace from her favorite bottle of wine, she starts to redirect her anger toward her husband and the slaves on the plantation. She is a tortured soul with a traumatic past that leads her down a path rooted in surreptitious behavior, infidelity, and alcoholism. She becomes more volatile after whooping cough diminishes the free slave labor that provides the Boney family prosperity. Her fear of losing her status as the exalted ruler of this small-town forces her to become more diabolical than ever before.

Anyone who has been a bouncer, bartender, or just a club-goer will recognize themselves, their coworkers, and their friends in the diverse set of characters. Anyone who hasn’t been part of the scene will be shocked and scandalized by some of the tales BoNey has to tell. Swingers, strippers, arsonist firefighters, cowboys, gangsters, and more show up at the club. Dwight BoNey’s depiction of the various types who might turn up on a Saturday night will leave you laughing long after you finish the final page.

Looking for a Food Gift
The first Book in the TALON series, TALON, COME FLY WITH ME was TOP 10 FINALIST with AUTHORS ACADEMY AWARDS 2018 SILVER MEDAL AWARD with READERS' FAVORITE in Children's' adventure 2018 Here is the first chapter: ‘Matica, where are you? Ah, there you are. What are you doing?’ Four year old Aikon, Matica’s very clever and bright brother, found her crawling under the big tree near their hut, trailing a small cloud of dust behind her. Putting his hands on his hips, he accused her, ‘You’re not looking for a food gift for Tamo, are you? So, what are you doing?’ Close to tears, she answered, ‘Y-e-e-s, I am looking, but I can’t find anything, not even the tiniest worm.’ She hit the dusty ground beside her with the flat of her hand. A small dust cloud rose up and tickled her nose and throat. She coughed, then sneezed. Not looking, she plonked on the only spot of grass under the tree. Cluck, cluck-cluck, cluck, cluck-cluck-cluck. With flapping wings, a chicken ran away. Matica sat down awkwardly. Laughing, Aikon scooped up the chicken and held it in his arms, stroking it. ‘Look at her, how cute she looks. Tsk, tsk. You don’t want her to end up in the pot, do you? Poor thing. She’s not ready for the pot yet, you know. Mum needs her eggs.’ Matica pulled a face. Still laughing, Aikon let the chicken go. ‘Here you go,’ he said to the her, then looked at his sister. ‘Was she helping you?’ ‘Mmm, she tried for the last ten minutes but hasn’t found anything either. She liked being with me though.’ ‘She likes being with you?’ He looked after the chicken. ‘All right, then. Come on, we’ll find something now.’ Aikon crawled away from where Matica was sitting. As he passed her, she saw his sparkling eyes – like a glow-worm, she thought. He must have played with Emelio before, his best friend. These two are one of a kind, they really are. If only I … She stopped. Self pity was something she didn’t want to fall into. Matica crawled after him. Her long, wavy, sandy-blonde hair fell over her face; she brushed it behind her ears. She was dressed in a blue and white traditional short dress and looked gorgeous with her golden brown skin, tanned by the scorching sun high up in the mountains of Peru, where they had now lived for the last four years. Aikon also had the same golden brown skin. A colourful dragonfly flitted past Matica and sat on a leaf beside her. ‘Aikon, look!’ Matica pulled his foot to get his attention. Fascinated, they both examined it. ‘What a beauty, hey? But I won’t catch it for Tamo. It’s too nice.’ Stretching her hand to touch it with her finger, she wrinkled her face and said impulsively, falling into self-pity now, ‘Some animals are so small and, and… some humans are as well,’ she grumbled very softly. ‘But others can be so big...’ Aikon looked at her seriously for a few seconds, not smiling. Finally he said, ‘You mean your condors, Tamo and Tima, and you as well?’ ‘Hmm, big, Tamo and Tima, small, me.’ She sighed. ‘I feel smaller than them. Why do I have this growth problem? Why can’t I be like you – normal?’ Aikon shrugged his shoulders. ‘Matica, don’t say that. If you think that, you’ll be sad, so stop it. We can’t change you. You have to stay the way you are.’ He lifted his hands. ‘I wish you were the right size and not smaller than me, but Emelio has never said anything bad about you.’ His brown eyes sparkled with truth. ‘Why do you have to be so smart, Aikon?’ He stood up and stretched himself, then tapped his chest. ‘Because I am.’ He fell down beside her and grinned. She smirked. ‘Okay, thanks for your kind words, but…’ she paused a little, ‘I really wish I didn’t have that… that challenge. It would be so much easier for me.’ ‘I know.’ Aikon put his hand on her arm. ‘Do you know that I… Oh, no!’ Aikon snapped his fingers and dropped his shoulders. He looked dully at the ground. ‘I can’t have forgotten that word already. No, no, I never forget new words.’ Matica waited and frowned. ‘Mum told me a new word this morning. It starts, I think, with an “a” and a “d … “ad” … yes, got it. Admire. Yes, I do admire you having the condors, but...’ ‘Really?’ Matica interrupted him. Surprise and disbelief glowed in her green eyes. ‘You really mean that?’ ‘Oh, yes, I do,’ he nodded. ‘And, like always, you’re fond of big words.’ ‘Yeah.’ He grinned slyly, then his expression changed to annoyance. ‘But we haven’t found anything for Tamo yet.’ Brusquely he turned and crawled away. Wondering about his mood swing, Matica followed him, then she heard him mumbling, ‘For two years, every day we have to find something for Tamo. Humph!’ ‘Hey!’ Matica called. ‘Are you complaining? You don’t need to help me, you know. I can find something myself. Besides, I thought you liked to help me.’ ‘Yes, I do.’ He sighed. ‘It’s only sometimes I’m not in the mood.’ ‘Like now, I see. Is Emelio waiting?’ ‘Yes. I told him you would probably need my help.’ A smirk split his face. ‘Wow,’ Matica said, stunned. ‘What’s the matter now?’ ‘You looked just like Dad.’ ‘Yeah?’ he said, cheered up and with big, round eyes. ‘I like that.’ Matica, looking sad, said, ‘Aikon, you said you admire me having the condors. I admire you having friends.’ Aikon crawled towards her and kissed her on the cheek. ‘Don’t I count?’ ‘Yeah, but still… you know.’ ‘Did you find something?’ came a small voice from behind them. ‘Would this do?’ Aikon looked at Emelio, who was holding a live and clucking chicken under his arm. Aikon started to laugh but shook his head. ‘You don’t mean that, do you?’ ‘Well, isn’t it better than nothing?’ ‘No!’ Matica called out. ‘We can’t give Tamo a live chicken. No way.’ ‘Okay.’ His voice was cheerful as he let the chicken go. It fluttered to the ground clucking and ran away, happy to be free. ‘Can I help finding something dead, then?’ Emelio’s black, oval eyes were pleading with them. Short, straight, black hair surrounded his pleasant, round face. He wore bright blue shorts and a yellow shirt. It suited him well with his dark golden skin. ‘Come on, then,’ Aikon invited, laughing. Happy to help, Emelio crawled in the dust with Aikon and Matica. Shortly after, Emelio whirled a dead lizard triumphantly over his head. He gave it to Matica and both boys ran off.

Do you know what it takes to be successful? --to succeed in business as well as in life itself? In this Biblical self-help success book, the author contends that God has several principles, which if followed can lead to success either in business or in life itself. He further contends that although many of these same principles may be found among the motivational speakers and thinkers of today and yesterday, that they were originally derived from Holy Scripture, whether or not these spokespersons are aware of it. He points to Jesus' parables to show that not everyone who preaches or practices Kingdom principles will be found to be in the Kingdom at the end. The 17 chapters of this book contain 17 articles relating to 17 of these principles. Knowing you purpose forgetting the past conquering fear believing focusing sowing and reaping resting and 10 others. (For a complete list of the principles included in this work, check the "Table of Contents.") There are examples, positive and negative, of these principles in the lives of characters from the author's novel, Of Such Is The Kingdom, A Novel of Biblical Times.
