Atlantis Rises Book
Chapter one: Baby on the doorstep.
It was one of those cold and dark winter nights of England when someone knocks on Dr. Peterson's door. He and his wife were deep asleep in their warm bed when he hears the knock. He wakes up and heads for the door. His wife wakes up as she felt him leave the bed.
Kate: "What is it, Honey?"
Daniel: "I heard someone knocking on the door; I'm going to see who it is."
Kate: "It's half past midnight, I wonder who that can be."
Daniel: "I'll go see."
Daniel goes, opens the door and freezes in his tracks out of terror. His wife follows him a couple of minutes later and freezes in her tracks also. What they saw was a very bright light in front of their house this light moved upwards to the skies and launched swiftly with the speed of light to somewhere very far. Kate and Daniel were so stupefied and they stood there in front of their house gazing at the empty cold night sky until they were snapped back to reality by a little baby's cry.
They looked down at the doorstep where they found a little baby wrapped in a blue blanket. Daniel picked him up and found some sort of plastic thing underneath the baby. He handed the baby to his wife and picked it up. It was a triangular shaped thing. He examined it carefully but found nothing. He, his wife, and the baby entered to the house and didn't say a word until half an hour later.
Daniel: "Am I dreaming?"
Kate: "I don't think so."
Daniel: "I am so confused."
Kate: "Me too."
Daniel: "I wonder what that thing is."
Kate: "Let me see it."
She puts the baby between them on the couch and Daniel stretched his hand to give her that thing. As soon as it got over the baby it floated in midair and shone brightly. Then, some sort of hologram appeared over it. In the hologram, a man and a woman who looked human were standing side by side. The woman spoke first and the man followed her later.
Woman: "Hello. We are Atlanteans and we are from Atlantis. We had a long journey to come here. We need your help as much as you need ours."
Man: "We hope that you could take care of our baby and you will be greatly rewarded later but tell no one about this or about us. This baby is a boy of light and he is in grave danger. We will explain later."
Woman: "We will be back to take him when the time comes but we left you the liberty to give him an Earth name. Thank you in advance and take care of our son. End transmission."
Kate: "We have no children yet. What a great time for a child."
Daniel: "What shall we call him?"
Kate: "I always liked the name Shawn. How about it?"
Daniel: "Then Shawn it is."
Daniel and Kate loved Shawn from the first look but they were still confused about what had happened that night. They decided not to tell Shawn anything about it until the right time. Since then, Daniel switched his interest from physics (he was a doctor in physics) to the study of UFOs, aliens, and the lost continent of Atlantis.
As soon as Daniel started his new study, he stumbled across some information about the Bermuda triangle and it's relation with Atlantis since they both had a common geographical area. Also, he noticed that many UFO appearances have occurred over this area. He also found some information concerning a psychic called Edgar Cayce who talked about Atlantis and it's relation with the Bermuda triangle. He said that machines from Atlantis are causing the disappearances. Cayce blamed the destruction of Atlantis on some sort of death ray misused by the Atlanteans. Daniel also noticed that it's been a long time since any disappearances have occurred.

Signature (a Random House website) looks at the many 2018 Golden Globes nominees based on books:
It is officially that time of the year awards season is upon us. As usual, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has kicked things off with the announcement of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards nominees. The literary world is represented in this year's lineup with a smattering of great adaptations leading the charge in both film and TV. While the slate of nominees is populated with a few of the marquee titles you'd expect "Game of Thrones" got it's annual nod, for instance a few surprises cracked the surface as well. It looks to be another interesting year at the Golden Globes. Let's have a look.
Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year for 2017 is feminism. The word was a top lookup throughout the year, with several spikes that corresponded to various news reports and events.
In an opinion piece in the Irish Times, John Boyne writes:
So I'm going to make a claim now that will probably get me kicked out of the Fraternity of Underappreciated Male Authors (FUMA) and blacklisted from the annual Christmas football game. Here goes:
I think women are better novelists than men.
There, I've said it. While it's obviously an enormous generalisation, it's no more ludicrous than some half-wit proudly claiming never to read books by women. For the record, purporting to love literature while dismissing the work of female writers is like claiming to be passionate about music while refusing to listen to anything but Ed Sheeran. However, I'm going to try to back up my sweeping statement...
The great Simeon Booker, one of the bravest journalists of our time, faced dangers far worse than a petulant president's social media feed. Booker refused to be cowed--and ultimately helped change the nation. His life's work should be a lesson to us all about the power of truth to vanquish evil.
Booker died Sunday at 99. At the height of his career, few could have imagined he would live so long.
As Washington bureau chief for Chicago-based Johnson Publications, publisher of the newsweekly Jet and the monthly magazine Ebony, Booker went to the Deep South to cover the most tumultuous events of the civil rights movement--life-threatening work for an African American journalist.
William H. Gass, a proudly postmodern author who valued form and language more than literary conventions like plot and character and who had a broad influence on other experimental writers of the 1960s, '70s and beyond, died on Wednesday in St. Louis. He was 93.
Mr. Gass was widely credited with coining the term "metafiction" to describe writing in which the author is part of the story. He himself was one of the form's foremost practitioners.
Barnes & Noble, which posted a wider loss last quarter and sent its shares tumbling, is scaling back ambitions to become more than a bookseller.
The retailer had hoped that toys, games and other items would shore up its results, especially as Amazon ate away at its traditional business. But its non-book sales have flagged the past two quarters, and now the company is putting its focus back firmly on reading.
Shelf Awareness reports on the growing "Cider Monday" movement by indie booksellers in response to the big online shopping day known as Cyber Monday. In this low key but fun event stores offer their customers "a warm welcome and a cup of delicious cider" to thank them for shopping local.
Dictionary.com's choice for its Word of the Year is "complicit." It says online searches for the word spiked three times this year...
On Saturday, hundreds of booksellers across the USA took part in Indies First and Small Business Saturday, organizing all kinds of in-store activities, offering a range of deals, hosting parties and engaging in the staple of Indies First since the event was founded by Sherman Alexie in 2013: having authors work in their favorite indies as booksellers. Shelf Awareness reports on some of the events.
Meanwhile, in the UK, bookstores celebrated the first inaugural Saturday Sanctuary
to "celebrate bookshops as a place of calm and respite from our hectic daily lives."
A New York Times opinion piece by Daniel T. Willingham lays out the argument that American's poor reading skills cannot be blamed on modern technology but on a misunderstanding of how the mind reads - that functional literary is grounded not just in the ability to read words but in having the factual knowledge to put what one is reading into context.
