My E-books on a New Years sale: Great adventure and fun for readers.


Tommy Tuckernocker: Shadow Warrior 56,000 words.
A steampunk special ops fusion set on a slightly different Earth. Much fun for readers.

Remember books make great gifts even paper ones even though mine are at the usual prices. But still this one's paper version price isn't bad, at $11.99

But the E-version is $3.50 until Jan 5 '16. It's a great action packed tale of Tommy Tuckernocker  who has decided to protect his country from those who want to take it over by force. He sneaks into factories, is chased in an airship, and on the ground, deals with a bank robbery back home and has to find a traitor, while he learns how to command men and women who may die because he makes a mistake.

A different twist on an old tale-ish.

Format: Paperback
I have to start off by saying I am normally not a big fan of reading first person books. There have been plenty of times when I simply put the book down and walked away. I didn't have that problem with LE Doggett's Above my Pay Grade. The very concept that mages- in uniform no less- could exist within the everyday, modern world right under our noses is interesting enough to have made me continue through to the end. The author's familiarity with the location added depth and characterization that can be seen in Robert Ludlum's novels, further enhancing the old adage of write what you know. This book was fast paced and laced with enough action to keep me wanting to read. I eagerly await the next novel (which he promised in the beginning) in this series. Good read.

Christian Freed

"While I don't profess to any knowledge of the steam punk genre I immediately felt comfortable after only a few pages of jumping into Louis Doggett's Tommy Tuckerknocker. Being a former soldier myself, I easily followed the flow and pacing of the story as Tommy took his team through a series of life and death situations that were not only action packed, but realistic in terms of how they play out. This book was not only enjoyable, but easily read. I found myself at the end much faster than I was prepared for. Kudos to Mr. Doggett for writing an enjoyable tale."

One last Christmas post about God's Greatest Gifts

One last bit of Christmas.

"God's Greatest Gifts" to us

This message was delivered by my pastor the week before Christmas but it was just recently added to the church's podcast website. The message is good all year because God gives us good things all year. There is a lot of good stuff here and a message we could use for joy peace and hope which is all a part of Christmas.
The message is delivered with humor, common sense and some transparency so it is worth listening to. 
 Church is Valley Christian Center of Fresno CA and the pastor is Bill Chaney.  For more information you can go to

Time for my Christmas post for '15 Why Christmas: He is with us. He is love, the first step for grace

 Time for my yearly post about what Christmas is all about. To new readers: I have done this for something like five years. I usually deal with the fact that Jesus being born was a sign that God is with Us. Not only Us as in all of humanity but Us as in individually. God the Creator of the universe is with us. That idea can create Hope in every situation. God can deal with and heal your situations, issues, hurts and actions. He is also there to hold you through it all too. Or to help you become an even better person.  

      Christmas is also a sign and is evidence of God’s love. That is Jesus’ birth was and still is a definite sign of the fact that God is love. Again not only humanity as a whole but you individually. No matter what hurts, hangups, habits you have. No matter what you have done or not done God the Creator loves you. All peoples groups, all races, all nationalities, all of us-yes, that last was redundant but there was a purpose to the redundancy. A solid point I wanted to make. 

     So Christmas-Jesus being born in a stable to a simple girl, placed in a manger, the shepherds, the angel announcement, the whole thing. There have been plenty of pictures, real displays, movie scenes that show this moment. It doesn’t matter if there was snow outside the stable or if, as some think, it was a cave or a very simple structure, the important thing is that He was born. And that not only is that moment being a show of God’s love and that it is God with us, as I stated already, but it was also the first step in God’s plan of Grace. He had to be born, had to grow up, had to teach and show miracles, had to have temptations and had to die and had to be resurrected so that we-as in you and me-can be forgiven and thereby can know God. Sin was a big problem and it had to be dealt with as in completely done away with in our lives. He showed we could not live up to a series of rituals and commandments, that our own efforts got us no closer to God. Yet He still loved us and to prove that love He sent His only Begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish-should not die separated from God. He also showed His great love toward us in that while we were yet sinners God sent Jesus to die for us. That is the part of the Christmas story that is Love. God Sent us His Son, born of a woman. That is Love! That is why we rejoice over Christmas; not only is God with us in a way He hadn’t been before, not only does it show His Love for all of us but it is His gift to us. Grace is unmerited favor-we don’t earn it or deserve it. We are saved by grace so that no one can boost. That is why Joy and Peace are a part of Christmas as well as love-hope should be too for Jesus is the hope creator. Noel is another word for Christmas and could come from a word that meant birth. It has become a short way to say celebrate Jesus was born. 

As with any gift we have to receive it. God still allows the free will He made us with, so it is your choice to receive it or not. Good things come with receiving it: most important total forgiveness of your sins-they are done away with-but also healing of hurts, hangups and habits, plus Joy so good it is unspeakable and peace that passes understanding and a love that is terrific. Yes, there are changes which can be rough but over all it is definitely worth it.

If you choose it, tell God, tell someone else, read the Bible. Just talk to God as you would anyone you know. He knows you need it and He knows your pains and hurts and your sins so agree with Him-say it. He understands pain, plain talk and if you are not totally sure about this.
