New St. Nic, Inc. review!

From
Scholars & Rogues:
"St. Nic, Inc. is a fast paced thriller that explores government overreach, technology's role in society, and what it means to "do good." It fits into that category that we might think of as a "beach read"--except that it's a book about the holiday season. Consider it up to amuse yourself during those lazy days at the end of the year. You'll find it an apt diversion."


More praise for St. Nic, Inc., the "innovative" and "magical" thriller that readers say moves like a Clive Cussler novel and has the action of Tom Clancy:

“When the talented SR Staley tosses DEA agents, moles, computer whizzes, and a multi-national CEO into one action-filled plot, you get St. Nic, Inc.  a story that sparkles like the North Pole on a sunny day.  St. Nic, Inc. offers a fresh vision of what modern tools like the Internet and high-speed delivery services could accomplish in the hands of the right Little People. This heart-warming re-imagining gives us reason to believe—and fall in love all over again with our most cherished time of year.” Tallahassee Democrat review by award winning author Donna Meredith  

"St. Nic, Inc. is a magical, innovative, and fresh continuation of the beloved Santa Clause myth. Staley has honored the past while ushering one of the world's most cherished and inspirational stories into the 21st century. St. Nic, Inc. artfully combines the action of a Tom Clancy novel with the insightful social commentary and multiple levels of experience of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. St. Nic, Inc. is great novel that would make a great movie." Mark McNees (D.Min), author of The Six Symbols of the Gospel

Women & Martial Arts Roundtable, Some women start training in martial arts because they want to be heroes, just like the boys. Still others started their training because they enjoyed the work out, while others were prompted by self-defense. They all want the rigorous training in the dojo. Just like the boys. 

These insights and others are the focus on the second round of discussions in the 
Women & Martial Arts Roundtable series available on this website (a pdf version is also available). The roundtable draws on the experiences of five women-Rumiko Hayes, Tori Eldridge, Mary Stevens, Kriss Hurdle, and Laura Giancarlo-all of whom hold high ranking black belts and four of whom own their own martial arts schools. Many will be surprised at their insights after decades of training and managing their dojos, and the series itself fundamentally challenges the notion that the traditional ways of teaching martial arts is always the best one.

Sam Staley at Books By the Banks book festival in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The [Pirate of Panther Bay] sometimes seems more romantic novel than adventure yarn, but S.R. Staley puts plenty of zip into the action sequences.... [H]e masterfully captures a sword fight, building tension it seems hard to believe possible short of seeing it on a huge movie screen.

Thanks to SR Staley's powerful writing, I was tansported into the story-I was hiding n the dead-end alley, being pounded by he rain as I prayed hte bullies wouldn't find me.
-Bookreviewvenue.com

Many of my students in middle school can relate to this and that is why this book is now sitting on my shelf for anyone to read.
-Liveteachcreate.com

The author's writing brings the story and emotions to life-fear, anger, frustration and trying to establish a powerbase is poignant to any establishment with an age range.
