What if the only friend you have isn’t real? 
When the voices in his head begin to make sense, high school senior Branson Kovac turns to the one friend he’s still got… only to discover he’s not really there.
I was identifying the other parts of Kermit’s anatomy when tick boy tapped me again on the shoulder.
“What?” I glared at him and he backed away. That sudden jolt of anger triggered the shadow people. I shook my head, but it was still there. I saw a shadow of a person pick up the scalpel and attack tick boy with exact precision, cutting him across the throat. The only color I could see was red.

Saving money is hard. We want to budget, but we spend more than we realize—or admit to ourselves. For most, money seems to come and go, and we are left wondering why we are in debt. Life gets in the way, and unexpected expenses pop up. At the same time, costs for education, housing, and healthcare tend to increase every year, outpacing the raises we receive. The media does not help either. We turn on the TV and are overwhelmed by the information that is available. We ask ourselves where to even start. Between investment accounts, budgeting, and what to invest in, there is a lot to take in. Not only that, but the media portrays happiness as being for sale, and modern life pressures us into overspending with new cars, new watches, and new iPhones. It is no wonder that it is hard to save. We keep postponing saving money until later, thinking once we get that promotion or raise then we can start.


I used to think this way, especially when I was younger. I remember buying a new MacBook Pro for school and spared no expense getting the 15-inch version with bumped up specs when I only needed the 13-inch base model. I upgraded my iPhone every year when my current iPhone still worked fine. I bought the latest and greatest TVs to keep up with technology. And, I spent countless hours looking at new cars when I could afford them the least. Fortunately, common sense reeled my car fantasies back in. This behavior did not mean that I was a bad person. In fact, most people live life this way.


Growing Up Without


As a child, my brother and I grew up with a single mom. Our dad left when we were young, so we did not have a lot. During the day, my mom worked multiple jobs to try and make ends meet. I remember on more than one occasion seeing my mom walk in the door with a box of food, knowing she had gone to the food bank. In school, I was picked on for having odd clothes and glasses because we could not afford what the other kids were wearing. Through it all, I thought that if only I had what the other kids had, then I would be popular, happy, and normal. My urge to impress others came from this. I thought if I worked hard and bought everything my mom could not afford, then I could impress others in school, be liked, and have more friends.


Why am I sharing such a personal story right off the bat? Because coming from nothing, I know how hard it is to get your life on track and how it is easy to feel frustrated, exhausted, scared, resentful, or guilty over your financial situation. My experience growing up also taught me that happiness is a state of mind and how the insecure boy wanting to keep up with everyone else to be happy was wrong. I only became happier when I was satisfied with what I had.


Growing up without money meant that I had an odd fixation on it. I did not have money to manage, and, therefore, I wanted it. For years, I dreamed of what it would be like to have money and believed that once obtained then I would finally be secure in myself and have something to offer others. This became a problem because my self-identity revolved around money and how insecure I felt not having it. Little did I realize that money should be the process of attaining more but not the end goal.


My life changing-moment came after graduating high school, when I decided to live with my dad for a year in the Philippines. While I was there, I saw little children with literally nothing, whose parents made less than $100 a month, running around in the streets laughing. I thought to myself, “How can they be happy? Here I am working hard at my job at McDonalds spending money on videogames and electronics, and these kids are happier than I am.” I needed to change my focus, so I studied how those children could be happier than most people I knew back in Canada, including myself. No longer was I trying to impress others. Relationships, volunteering, and making a difference in the world became my focus. The good news is that you can make those fundamental changes right now like I did.


Who Is This Book For?


I wrote this book to make a positive impact on others concerning financial security. It is written to teach a new way of thinking about money—to help readers learn the fundamental skills they need to become debt-free and retire comfortably. This book is for anyone, of any age and income, who wants to learn how to better save their money and change their mentality regarding their finances. The ideas in this book are not taught in the classroom, although they should be, and come from real-world experience. I have an undergrad in finance and an MBA and still had to learn everything from scratch.


I specifically wrote this book as a guide for my peers, Millennials. We tend to focus on experiences instead of financial security, mostly because we believe having both is not feasible. We may wonder why even try when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds. The principles of this book, however, teach everyone the monetary fundamentals and demonstrate how financial security is achievable no matter where you come from.


Tackling Debt


The number one financial issue that faces society is debt. In December 2017, U.S. consumer debt hit $3.82 trillion. That is a lot of debt. Of this, $1.75 trillion are student loans, $1.25 trillion are auto loans, and $500 billion are credit cards. And, this does not include mortgages. Think about that for a second. This debt is about $11,660[i] per person including children. For a household of four, that is about $46,640. What is even more astonishing is the average U.S. household has a savings rate of 3.2%, which is near a 10-year low. As seen in the figure below, the country is headed in the wrong direction. Canadian consumers are doing a bit better but not by much.



If you are one of the 99% of the people out there, you fall somewhere on this financial spectrum:


  1. Retired comfortably with no money issues.
  2. Working, saving the maximum in tax-advantaged retirement accounts, and have no debt other than a mortgage.
  3. Same as above, but add car loans and/or student loans.
  4. Same as above, but not able to max out your tax-advantaged retirement accounts due to expenses.
  5. Same as above, but have credit card debt.
  6. Living paycheck to paycheck, cannot always make payments on time, and have a troubled credit history.
  7. Near bankruptcy, likely to lose the house and personal possessions, cannot find work, and debt is higher than your ability to pay back.


Your goal is to move up this spectrum, one rung at a time. My goal is to help you get climbing!


For full disclosure: I am in the #2 category with my goal of obtaining #1, which is a far cry from where I was growing up. What qualifies me to write a book about personal finance when I am not myself retired? Good question. First off, I started from the bottom with literally nothing. I was not born into a rich family. I had to work and claw my way up out of poverty.


Second, I am now debt-free, and believe me, it felt like a long road from being over $50,000 in debt and making mistakes along the way to now having a sizable six-figure retirement fund and owning multiple properties. It is all about saving, budgeting, investing in the market, using compound interest, and the time it takes for your money to work for you.


The truth is that for most people it is not one single event that puts them into debt but rather hundreds of small financial decisions every day—one transaction at a time, each swipe of the credit card, nothing that sets off alarm bells on its own. These small purchases add up over time, though. While my debt primarily came from a single life decision, I show you how changing my daily spending habits allowed me to pay back my debt and save a sizable amount in a short period of time.


The 14 chapters in Kicking Financial Ass, which are divided into four parts—Foundations, Growth, Investing, and Living Your Life—will transform your relationship with money, help you achieve your goals, and enable you to become financially independent. This is not a book about money as much as it is about changing your perspective on life.


By the end of this book, you will:


  • Spend less money and be happier.
  • Save more money.
  • Lower your debt and question every purchase.
  • Focus your time on what matters.
  • Overcome your past money mistakes and start investing for the future.
  • Save for retirement and retire earlier.
  • Discover what values you hold dear.


After reading this book, you will feel empowered to change your habits and routines, focus on debt reduction, and ultimately retire. You will feel free to travel the world, take multiple vacations a year, and live life how you want to and feel secure in your financial future. Many of us never received financial training in school. Most, if not all of us, had to learn it on our own. This book is a short-cut to teach you everything you need to know.

Forced to work on the right side of the law, Marco finds himself hunting down a serial killer who’s brutally murdered two women already. Worse, his new “partner” is beautiful, dedicated, and not buying a word of his cover story.

New Heights Juvenile Detention Center — Bronx, NY


Seventeen years ago


I was out in the yard after another pathetic excuse for dinner, checking around to see if anyone had gotten a care package from home so I could muscle in on them and get something decent to eat, when I spotted the new guy over by the outside fence. And I couldn’t look away.


There must’ve been a hell of an expression on my face, because Jake Paladino came over and elbowed me, even though I’d punched him for less in the past. “Did you see a ghost, or what?” he wheedled, and then flinched away, clearly remembering too late that I didn’t appreciate being jabbed.


I let it go this time, though. I was too fascinated to be angry.


“Over there,” I told him with a bare nod toward the fence.


Jake followed my gesture, and the perfect bug-eyed jaw-drop that formed on his face almost made me laugh. He looked like a real-life cartoon. Wile E. Coyote, watching the rocket he’d just fired at the Road Runner bounce off a cliff and head back at him full speed.


“You got a brother I don’t know about?” Jake finally blurted.


I shook my head, my gaze not leaving the newcomer. Apparently it was true what they said: everybody has a lookalike somewhere in the world. And here was mine. The new guy was a mirror, a twin, a clone of me.


My doppelganger.


Jake shook off the shock first and started bouncing on the balls of his feet, a lunatic grin on his unfortunate face. The scrawny, twitchy kid who’d followed me around like a stray dog since the day I got locked up in this crap place claimed to be the son of a mobster, and swore he was going to introduce me to his father and bring me into the “family business” when we got out of here. But I only had a week left on my sentence, and Jake had six months on his. Plus, he was probably lying about his mob connections.


I was considering it, though. If nothing better came along before Jake got out of here, maybe I’d give the little weasel a chance to make good on his claims. Considering my talents, the mob might be a decent fit for my future.


Not that any of us in New Heights could have a real future. They called it a youth center, but it was really just a prison with brighter colors — and everybody knew that ex-cons were screwed. Even if they were just kids when they went in.


Nobody who came out of this place would ever be considered a child again.


“Jesus, look at him. Holy shit.” Jake giggled and almost nudged me again, but then he thought better of it at the last minute. “I bet he’s about to piss his pants over there. Hey, let’s fuck with him.” The jagged grin spread. “You know what? You could do anything, even in front of the security cameras, and just blame it on that guy. We should burn this place down or something. Oh, wait, how about we kill a guard?”


“No,” I said sharply. Sometimes Jake had to be corrected like a dog, and it was all I could do not to rub his nose in his own shit. “Leave him alone, for now.”


The new guy — my doppelganger — did look unsettled. But unlike Jake, I didn’t believe he was scared. Reserved, maybe. Hanging back, getting the lay of the land. His posture was guarded and self-protective, as if he was expecting some kind of abuse, and that could’ve been interpreted as fear. But I sensed something dark in him.


Or maybe I was only projecting my own darkness onto the spitting image of myself.


Jake lost interest in the other kid fast once I rebuked him. His face only fell for a few seconds, and then his smile bounced back. “Vince and them are trying to crowd the hoop again,” he said, pointing over at the rundown basketball half-court in the far corner of the yard, where four or five of the younger boys had begun a half-hearted game of Horse. “Want to scare them off?”


“Nah. I’m hungry,” I told him. “Go find somebody with a care package. I want good shit, nothing generic or homemade.”


Always happy to serve, Jake nodded vigorously and scuttled off. I watched him absently for a few seconds before I returned my attention to the new guy.


This time, my doppelganger was looking back. And there was no fear in him at all.


There was nothing in him.


It really was like looking in a mirror.

Fantasy Adventure
Date Published: August 8, 2019
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
On her world, they call her star struck, but why do the stars beckon her so …
On a mining outpost in the Inner Worlds, a young woman dreams of the stars. When she falls in with a motley crew of bounty hunters seeking to avenge an injustice, Novi believes her dreams have come true. But her journey has just begun.
Led by the only man to bring the mightiest army in the sector to its knees, the crew is engaged in a wily cat and mouse game with the powerful Guild Coalition. With her new shipmates, Novi dodges space outlaws and greedy corporations, mingles with Synths and settlers, jumps the Star Portal Labyrinth and discovers a mysterious legacy bequeathed by the Gods. But each exhilarating adventure raises terrifying questions about her. Can Novi find the answers she seeks before time runs out for her?
Author’s Note: This fantasy adventure in the style of a swashbuckling space western is set on far away exotic worlds. Adventure, intrigue and action abound in this tale of a feisty young heroine embarking on the quest of a lifetime.
The murmur of voices heralded her approach. Forewarned, Novi was careful to crouch silently behind the hatch cover.
“We’ve searched Ventini’s cargo” the leader announced, down in the chamber. “Where’s the box?”
Novi’s heart gave a lurch. Could they be searching for Zufon Ventini’s intricately carved box, she wondered. The one with the energy waves that affected her so powerfully. Back in the duct, she was subject to its pernicious effects again. A night’s rest away from it had not dimmed the potency of whatever lay hidden in the strongbox.
In the Rec Chamber, Kidani looked confused by the leader’s question. But Novi sensed the pilot come to the same realization as her.
The leader addressed Kali, his demeanor subtly menacing. “No more games” he warned. “Where’s the strongbox?”
The pilot said nothing and Kidani rushed into speech. “We don’t know anything about a strongbox. Cap’n didn’t tell us about it.”
“I’m the chef and he’s the pilot” she reiterated, pointing at the RimWorlder. “We do our jobs, but we don’t know much about Cap’n’s affairs.”
“With you, I believe it” the leader agreed suavely. “But I know who your Captain is — the hero of the Five Year War. That tells me this RimWorlder here was one of his Renegades. He knows more than he’s telling us.”
The leader seems to know a lot about this Cruiser and the Captain. Who is he?
Kidani opened her mouth to respond but the leader ignored her to signal the man with the flasher. The henchman stepped forward to hold the weapon flush against Kali’s head.
Kidani made a small movement before checking herself.
Novi watched anxiously from behind the panel as the leader asked Kali. “One last time, RimWorlder. Where’s Ventini’s strongbox?”
Kali said nothing, the dark eyes glowering at the leader.
The slinger with the flasher raised it to hit the pilot but the leader stopped him with a raised hand, to direct him to Kidani instead.
Novi watched with her heart in her mouth as the man strode to the flame-haired girl to point his flasher at her, while the leader unstrapped his to hold it on Kali.
“The box or she dies” he said calmly to the RimWorlder.
In the eery blue glow of the emergency lights, Novi could see the terror on Kidani’s face, though the girl stayed still and mute.
“I don’t know where the box is, but occasionally, Cap’n hides certain valuables in the duct” Kali responded, subtly raising his voice. He hoped the stowaway would get the message. The duct was no longer safe for her to hide in.
“The maintenance duct?” the leader inquired.
The pilot nodded once, sharply.
Shyte. I must get out — they’ll be in the duct soon.
The leader reached for his Hailer. “Seto, check out the maintenance duct. There should be an access from the Bay.”
An alarmed Novi scrambled hastily, making for her old hiding place in the passage by the unoccupied chamber. Not a moment too soon, for she could hear voices cursing in the access passage from the Space Bay as the thugs poured into the duct.

Fantasy Fiction
Date Published: May 2019
Publisher: IVX Books
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
Return to White Catcliff is Inna Val Helm’s debut novel presented by an unforgettable cast of characters. Fantasy and reality merge amid elements of anthropomorphism, eternal life, and dimensional existence.
It tells the story of thirtysomething Nick Taylor and his black Lab, BD, who stumble upon a convenience store robbery in a suburb of present-day Chicago and are left for dead. They awaken to find themselves in the tranquil village of White Catcliff, where inhabitants faced certain death immediately prior to arrival.
The antagonist is VEIL (Volunteer Eleemosynary Institute and League), which presents as a humanitarian organization, but its true agenda is steeped in pillage and plunder. Nick’s mission is to stop its proliferation. This means he must not only leave his new home, but of greater consequence, he must travel alone, leaving his best friend behind.
Return to White Catcliff is a smartly crafted novel, artfully illustrated, humorous at times, dark at others, and always thought-provoking.

Acting jobs are scarce now for former TV teen detective Antigone Alden. So when a teaching position opens up at Southern Coastal University, Tig packs up her teenage daughter and heads home to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
The house she inherited from her mother isn’t entirely empty, however. Her mom seems stuck between this life and the next, and now Tig is a local reporter’s prime suspect in the murder of the former theater professor. Given his reputation as ladies’ man, there are plenty of people with a motive.
Tig isn’t a detective. She just played one on TV. Will that be enough to help her find the killer?


I loved the way the author presented this story. It has just enough cute and heartwarming to make you cozy, while also giving you plenty to think about over the course of the book. I adored these characters, they were the star of the show for sure. When you sit down to read a book like this, you sit down to get lost for a bit and I think this story lent to that perfectly.
Jessa Archer had such a wonderful voice that really shined through the words of the story. I loved the wit and humor woven in over the course of the story.
Don’t miss this story, you’ll definitely want to join Tig on this adventure.
