The August issue of the Midwest Book Review features reviews for two books RMA Publicity represents: Almost the Truth: Stories and Lies by Aaron Zevy and Amandla by Alix Jans. Both titles received strong praise from Senior Reviewer Diane Donovan.
Of Almost the Truth: Stories and Lies she says: "Almost the Truth: Stories and Lies is uniformly one of the more creative, satisfyingly reads of 2020. Readers who enjoy wry humor and life observations that depart from any anticipated pathway will delight in Aaron Zevy's collection, which is often politically or culturally incorrect in delightful ways." Here is a link to the book's Amazon sales page.
In her review of Amandla, Donovan writes, "Anyone who wants to better understand the many undercurrents affecting justice, freedom, and survival in past and present South Africa needs to read Amandla. It serves as the perfect introduction and summation of the country's controversial history, personalizing the story with characters who move through generations of conflict in a desperate attempt to win back their worlds and freedom. Amandla is very highly recommended for not only its historical roots, but for its ability to inject thriller, romance, and family history components into the bigger picture of South African issues and cultural perspectives."

Well done gentlemen!
There is a story in the Aug. 10 issue of the Falls Church News Press in Virginia about M.D. Missaiel's new book, The Alternative History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It's a novel that will really make you think, and was inspired, the author says, by the dangerous path the United States is currently on. Are we in danger of falling, just as the Roman Empire did so long ago?
Copies of The Alternative History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire are available for purchase online through both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Books can also be ordered through stores. For more information, go to Mmissaiel.illatease.info
