EARTH ESCAPE poses the big questions – Was it God, the Big Bang or was it Devolution?

9-and-love

EARTH ESCAPE, released in September 2016, although a fiction novel, which is only to say that the technological advancements depicted in this story are still on the drawing board, but not far from becoming reality, is so much more than what it appears to be. While it is classifiable as a scifi thriller, it is weaved with a contemporary thread about our current world and the geopolitical and environmental factors and threats which we face today, which will make the reader feel as if this very scenario could be happening.

cropped-earth-escape.jpg

It is also a philosophical thriller, because the main character, and his Ai (Artificial Intelligence) companion, in the course of their urgent mission to find a new planet to colonize as home for mankind, are also in search of the answers to existence. How was the Universe created and how did we come about – and moreover, and more importantly, who are we?

big-bang

Was it the Big Bang, was it God, or maybe there is another explanation, one which defies reality to such an extent that few, if any, speak of it. Jim Tale, the captain of the star ship Evolution, wants answers. Rock-solid answers to existence. In their search, they encounter amazing and thrilling new horizons, alien races and more, and all the while the puzzle begins to unravel.

This epic space journey will not only entertain the reader but it opens up doors to fascinating and intriguing concepts which challenge the accepted theories of modern day mediocrity.

“This author has the most inventive imagination ever put into words. I am hooked on his books, as different as can be from each other, like an addict seeking a fix! Once again i will say that i do not read Sci-Fi, not into TREK or such shows….but Real Laplaine wrote EARTH ESCAPE, so of course i jumped at the chance. Others have told the plot outline so i will refrain, but i will say that he makes the futuristic quite realistic…..quite believable. And his characters, in this case, Jim Tale, are as ‘REAL’ as you and I.”  Linda M.E.

 “An intriguing novel set in the near future with a great deal of reverence to our current world. The story takes you on an interstellar journey searching for a new world for the human race to inhabit as ours is on the verge of destruction. The main character exudes the persona of a street smart guy with unyielding courage enabling him to persevere in mentally taxing, as well as perilous situations. Ingrained in him is also an introspective quality that keeps him searching for answers in regards to life, creation, and purpose that have existed since the beginning of time which seem to be a constant quarry throughout the universe.” Albert H.

DEAD BUT NOT GONE – “Marilyn Monroe wants the world to know the REAL story, the REAL her…”

Marilyn 4

Reader review by Yankeelin of DEAD BUT NOT GONE

“READER RADAR ALERT! Real Laplaine is THE most unique author I’ve ever read and thoroughly enjoyed…..a true wizard of words! In his subtle way he opens your mind and gives the reader an alternative way to see things.”

Dead But Not GoneFULL WEB FRONT

“In Dead But Not Gone there is a bit of science involved, but not enough to intrude on the storyline, but instead ,enough to help make the storyline a possiblility …
There is a solar flare that causes an energy surge. Some kind of parallel time shift happens and odd things are happening all over… a long dead pet re-appears, items from 25 years ago show up..and best of all? A world famous actress is again walking the streets, as confused and lost as the folks who reach out to help her. As her memories awaken and awareness dawns on her,Marilyn Monroe wants the world to know the REAL story, the REAL her. Angered and saddened by the rumors that became facts after her tragically short life, she sets out to write a book to set HER story straight! At the same time scientists are tripping over themselves to explain what happened in space…
SO. Does she get to live a ‘normal’ life with real love and friends or does the black hole of time take her back? Read the book and let yourself be fascinated.” – Yankeelin

Available at bookshops all over the world! And AMAZON – of course!

Keeno Crime Thrillers – a unique crime thriller novel series

Keeno photo

What does Keeno McCole have in common with crime fighters such as James Bond, Dirk Pitt (Clive Cussler), Jack Reacher (Lee Child), Alex Cross (James Patterson) or the classics such as Dirty Harry, The Punisher, etc?

The answer – NOTHING!

Keeno McCole is different. He takes on only the big players in the criminal arena – tackling high-concept crime scenarios which are outside the box. Keeno is an indigenous Canadian Indian, from the First Nation of Canada, mixed with a touch of Irish and French lineage. He heads up the ATU (Anti-Terrorism-Unit) of the RCMP (the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) – along with his small team. He refuses to wear a uniform, just cowboy boots, jeans and denim shirts. He’s lethal with most any weapon but his choice of combat is his four inch throwing knife which, by the age of seven, he could throw with deadly accuracy. McCole isn’t a womanizer, and he isn’t dysfunctional in his intimate life – he loves only one woman and she is his anchor in a world of violence and crime which he faces every day. Keeno bleeds, he takes his share of bullets and he constantly walks a fine line between life and death. His passion to fight the criminal element was ignited when he was just four years of age and a man attacked his mother, strangling the life out of her. Keeno picked up a pair of scissors and stabbed the man – and on that day he put his feet on the road and became the criminal’s worst nightmare.

Follow this new Canadian crime fighter, unlike any you have known, in the Keeno Crime Thriller Novels.

 

Book Reviews of The Deception People: A high-concept paranormal thriller

Here are a few recent reader reviews on THE DECEPTION PEOPLE – a high-concept paranormal thriller…

The Deception People

I received this book from a Goodreads’ giveaway and I enjoyed it. The premise was intriguing and I liked the character of Tony Evans. The action was entertaining and it was a well-written, tight book… I do agree that Real Laplaine is a masterful author who weaves a good tale! – Debbie Payne

Very good and interesting book. I rated it as a 4.5. I definitely going to look for more of his books to read. – Judy Ann

I received this book for free through a Goodreads giveaway, and I am so glad I did. I am a mother of 3, so it can be difficult for me to sit and read for extended periods of time. Because of the short sections in the book (often times only 3 pages long), I was able to read for short amounts of time and break often to tend to my kids without stopping in the middle of the action. Even with my “bite-size” reading technique, I was still able to finish the book in a day. It book was a joy to read, and I look forward to reading more books by Laplaine.  – Jules
