THE HAUNTING OF MERCI HOSPITAL BY TANYA R. TAYLOR



Being released April 30th and available now for pre-order - “The Haunting of Merci Hospital” by Tanya R. Taylor, author of #1 bestsellers “Cornelius” & “INFESTATION: A Small Town Nightmare.”

“No one expects to visit a hospital for a non-threatening injury only to never leave again. Merci Hospital, one of the oldest in the county, has served countless patients for practically decades. However, something is now very odd about the place as some who are admitted report seeing things that are not there and others never get to talk about it.

“Catherine Lucene is fairly new at Merci, a highly regarded nurse whose reputation for excellence and compassion in healthcare precedes her. She gradually becomes aware of the inexplicably sinister happenings at the hospital, but the underlying cause of it all evades her. Will Catherine's determination to uncover the truth help preserve the lives of those not yet lost, including her own, or will her curiosity of the "unknown" propel her into a horrifying state-of-being she never knew existed?”

Looks like “The Haunting of Merci Hospital” will be another great read by this bestselling Bahamian author!

NEW BOOK ABOUT THE HISTORY OF BAHAMAS AIRWAYS


Captain Paul Aranha, former Bahamas Airways pilot, has written a book about Bahamas Airways Limited (1936 – 1970), which should prove to be quite fascinating. This is due to be released in October of this year. He says:

“78 years ago, tomorrow, the Imperial Government announced that it would build an airfield on New Providence.

“Construction of the field was well underway and the Bahamas Airways Douglas Dolphin made a test landing on Runway 09/27.

“Shortly after that, the field was sold to Sir Harry Oakes, who completed the job and opened Nassau's first airport, which was known as Oakes Field.

“History tends to overlook the important role played by the British government, but my upcoming book, about Bahamas Airways Limited (1936-1970) will make it clear.

“The book should become a reality by October - in time for Christmas shopping.

“It is planned for 8 chapters and I have already approved the first 3 chapters.”

Paul Aranha, who also managed and owned the former Trans Island Airways, can be contacted at islandairman@gmail.com. Paul writes a regular column in The Tribune’s “Weekend” section. Above is a copy of his latest article in The Tribune today.

THANK YOU!

A big thank you to the hundreds of Amazon customers who downloaded “The Scottish Connection” during my recent free offer. And many thanks to those who continue to support my books at regular prices. I hope everyone enjoys reading this mini-memoir of my 1978 journey back to Scotland with my mother and young sons as much as I did researching and writing it! “The Scottish Connection”, also available in paperback, contains a wealth of information - Scottish ancestry, historical facts, genealogy, comparable prices, geographical descriptions, personal anecdotes, nostalgia and precious old photos.
