The Zurich Conspiracy

The Zurich Conspiracy


Thirty-something Josefa Rehmer is as smart and ambitious as they come, qualities that have earned her the enviable position of events manager at Loyn, an exclusive Zurich leather accessories company. But when Werner Schulmann is appointed to be her new supervisor, Josefa’s professional ambitions are dealt a serious blow. After all, it was Schulmann’s sexual harassment that nearly derailed her career years earlier. Unable to stomach the thought of working for such a man, Josefa resigns, abandoning Loyn for another local firm. But when Schulmann is murdered and Loyn’s CEO commits suicide, Josefa begins to suspect that something other than sexual impropriety is plaguing her former company. She sets out to uncover the truth and soon realizes the two deaths are just the tip of the iceberg. As she digs deeper, Josefa finds herself caught in a complex and dangerous web of blackmail, corporate espionage, and murder. And if she’s not careful, she will be the next one to take the fall. This dramatic tale of corporate intrigue doubles as an intricately plotted thriller about the darkest side of office politics and the people who will do anything to come out on top.

The Secret: Edward Wilson And The Government Conspiracy

The Secret: Edward Wilson And The Government Conspiracy


This book suggests a solution to an episode that has remained a mystery to this day. It is a story involving a king, his mistress, one of Princess Diana’s ancestors and a financial genius. The solution offered here is a hypothesis, but as will be shown, a more plausible one than two published well after Wilson’s death. These earlier accounts written anonymously by authors with a political axe to grind are printed here as appendices, so that readers can compare the three.

The Grand Conspiracy Against Publishing Your Book

Here’s what I believed when I was trying to get my first publishing deal:

There is a cabal of writers and publishers purposefully keeping me out. Every successful writer is part of this cabal. They know who I am and they hate what I write because it is too good and they feel threatened by me and my work. I’m just too brilliant. Too edgy. Too innovative and new.

Of course, I never verbalized this or said it in my head in this specific way or perhaps I would’ve realized how ridiculous and narcissistic and petty it sounds. But there was always a feeling of something being incredibly unfair, and if I give words to that feeling, then that is the feeling and those are the words, however delusional they may sound now. I never realized, at the time, how much comfort there was inside that feeling because it absolved me completely of any and all responsibility for my success or failure.

What did it matter how well I wrote? How hard I tried? Why bother rewriting anything? Why look for the cracks in what I’d already done? There was a vast conspiracy against me and my book and so, nothing was my fault. I was already perfect.

It is so incredibly tempting to take the power out of your own hands and put it in someone else’s. It’s terrifying to accept that what you write and how good it is, is ultimately up to you, because then you have to accept that maybe your first novel (all 80 000 words of it) isn’t good enough and maybe you have to start again from scratch. Maybe your writing hasn’t found an audience yet because, maybe, that audience doesn’t exist. Maybe the people who read it just don’t like it.

All those maybes are hard, painful things just to consider, let alone act upon. But the best writers I know not only entertain those thoughts, they sigh, roll their eyes and start again. They wake up feeling completely and utterly despondent, and then they go to work. The worst, on the other hand, often aren’t writers for long and if they are, they spend their time going to seminars and endlessly trawling through articles looking for tricks, for the right agent, publishing secrets and quick and easy tips — something, anything that doesn’t involve actually going back and doing the work — and it is work. Ask not for motivation. Ask for discipline.

Here’s the only real tip, trick or secret to writing:

You have to actually enjoy the act of writing, not the idea of being a writer, not the respect and awe you believe you’ll command as a writer, not the romance of tapping away at a typewriter or signing someone’s book — you have to love the numbing, horrible, finicky hard work of sitting there with sentences and paragraphs and pages, working out how to make each and every word sing its own song. The act of writing anything, a novel or a poem, is only slightly more pleasurable than it is laborious, and if you are a writer, you chase that little bit. You slave on, chasing. But if you’ve got that, then everything else stops mattering as much because that little, tiny bit is there every single time you sit down in front of a keyboard or a notepad. And it’s enough.

That’s it. It’s 2015. There are a million different ways to find your audience, if they exist. You just have to give them a good enough reason to, find you.

The plain and simple reality is it’s hard to get someone to read a book, let alone buy one. The process of becoming a writer, as a profession, is hard work and takes a long time and luckily, none of that matters if you enjoy the act of what you’re doing. And while sexism, racism and phobias of all kinds are real and terrible and should be revealed and stamped out wherever they’re found, all the writers and publishers I’ve met, didn’t have a single thing against me, or you.

And while that’s scary, it’s also really, really, really good news.

Good luck.

A Conspiracy of Eagles

A Conspiracy of Eagles


Bart Davis is a rare talent. His novels are extraordinary.” -Gerry Carroll, author of North SAR AN EXPERIMENT IN TERROR BEGUN HALF A CENTURY AGO HAS REACHED ITS CLIMAX The Master Race. Fifty years ago, that twisted idea and the men who propounded it turned to ash. Now, the fire has been rekindled, and it’s about to explode across three continents. This time, the Children of the Eagle are determined that the fire shall not die. Journalist Ben Davidson came to Mississippi to report on the Klan, but his investigation is about to take a strange and savage twist. He has caught a glimpse of an unspeakable horror-the Adlerkinden, the Children of the Eagle, whose blood-drenched roots stretch from Hitler’s top command to today’s South African diamond kings and into the very heartland of America. With scant evidence in a world grown cynical, Davidson descends into the fearful heart of the expanding conspiracy. Plunging into a web of murder, corruption, and betrayal, he lands in the arms of a tragic, beautiful woman whose secret obsession with the neo-Nazis could prove fatal to the Adlerkinden-or to Davidson. About the Author Bart Davis is the author of ten novels, five non-fiction books, two feature films, and a wide range of print articles. He is a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science and Stony Brook University. His books have been published internationally, and translated into Japanese, Italian, Chinese, Norwegian, Hungarian, Bulgarian, German, Dutch, Portuguese, British, Spanish, and Korean.

Conspiracy Theorist Proves John F. Kennedy Never Existed

A startling new book, I Do Solemnly Swear…Not!, offers incontrovertible proof that the late President John F. Kennedy never actually existed. “JFK’s supposed life and death were the greatest hoaxes perpetrated on the United States since the so-called ‘signing of the Declaration of Independence,'” says author Maxwell Furlobble. “It’s part of a conspiracy so vast and complex that I’m pretty sure I’m part of it, which, of course, is exactly what they want you to think and I do.”

According to Furlobble, the Kennedy Family itself was invented in the 1840s by The Finger, a consortium that included oil speculators, the Illuminati, the Catholic Church, Freemasons, Whigs, and extraterrestrials from the Phoenix Dwarf and Triangulum Galaxies. “The Finger has controlled all of American and Greek history, using a combination of powerful mind rays, holograms and puppets,” explains Furlobble. “Whenever people thought John F. Kennedy was in a room, he really wasn’t. For those people who were there, you were all tricked. For those people who weren’t there, well, you can’t really say what happened, can you? Can you? Ha! In your face!”

When people suspected the truth about The Finger in the early 1960s, “John F. Kennedy” had to be “eliminated” and The Order turned to filmmaker Stanley Kubrick to fake the famous Zapruder footage. “Abraham Zapruder never existed and neither did Dallas, Texas,” says Furlobble. “Kubrick did exist, though, although the moon landing he later faked made no difference since the moon isn’t real.”
