From 18th Century France to 20th Century San Francisco, the Promise of the Rose Crystal both empowered and mystified Grace Moreau and her daughter Rose Wyndham.

They fought for women’s rights, suffered prejudice and conspiracy theorists, and blazed their way through a male-dominated world to define their own roles in society. Through it all they poignantly resisted romantic desire, for if they fell in love the power of the Rose Crystal would be impotent and they - and their lovers - would die.

A romantic adventure spanning 250 years, B. Roman's 'The Immortal Rose Wyndham' is a story where the power of music, and the belief in a purpose greater than oneself, provide the mystery and magic that creates miracles.

Gold Medal Winner!

Also recently awarded 2nd place in the 2024 Eric Hoffer Awards for the e-book nonfiction category.

"I am thrilled to let you know that the JFK Library in Boston will add my book The B-17 Tomahawk Warrior: A WWII Final Honor, to their Textual Print Collection as a reference material about Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. and previously unpublished information in Chapter 14 of my book.
The information stems from my research into why there was a link between the Tomahawk Warrior crew and Kennedy. It was more than just the coincidence of their planes crashing and exploding on the same day August 12, 1944. To have my book as reference material in one of America's most prestigious institutions is truly an honor of a lifetime."

Teaching Children Self-Confidence through Service to Others. Children today face immense pressure to fit in with their peers. This pressure is leading to record rates of depression among preteens and teenagers and this to suicide. Parents look for ways to build their children’s self-esteem; however, teens look to their peers and popular culture for acceptance rather than their parents. This puts parents in a challenging situation. Most children of this age group have issues with acceptance, and this is explored and resolved in a positive manner within the story line of the Talon series, Matica shows children and teens that they can overcome great obstacles with love, patience and a selfless attitude toward helping others and experience exciting adventure on the way.
I wanted to let children and parents know that they don’t need to suffer more than they already do. So:
Children suffer from all sorts of afflictions and through my books they can learn how to coup with everything, as Matica did, the main character in my TALON books. She had to learn it in her early life. Children can find a “Condor” as Matica did. Not literally a condor, but every child or adult for that matter, they are battling with incurable afflictions, should or can find something that let them forget what is happening to them. Finding a “Condor” would help them to overcome that.
Parents can read my book to younger children so they can see that they are not alone, but that they can overcome it in a positive way, not in a negative way.

Portugal News review

Twilight Visitor

"This is a fast paced read but the plot contains complex ideas which adds a depth to the book. Full of action and real life scenarios this is one of those books you can spend hours reading without realizing where the time has gone. There are plenty of surprises and twists. This book will appeal to crime and science fiction fans. And will also interest those intrigued by geopolitical themes."

Cosmicus 2.jpg

Agatha Christie in space? Why not, if you do it well. Todor Bombov has done it very well in his latest sci-fi novel TITAN.
An exploration team of astronauts on Saturn’s moon Titan starts losing members, one by one, to odd accidents or outright murder. And, personalized messages appear that reference Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” story, striking fear as to who’s going to be next.
But who – or what – is doing the killing?
As the clues mount up and the tension rises, how much can the humans trust their AI? Or each other?
A fast-paced plot, unique individuals, developing relationships, unpeeling mysteries…it all contributes to an urgent need to get off Titan, now!
Todor Bombov’s sci-fi novel TITAN is very engaging, mysterious, dangerous, full of contemporary relevance, full of warnings about what deleterious things can happen if we keep going the way we are with science, technology, exploration, and unchecked exploitation. Yet it does offer threads of hope for what might come about if humanity learns to evolve.
It is certainly a message we all need to hear these days. And it is presented in an entertaining yet dark way, which is quite appropriate for the nature of this story.
Bombov’s writing is smart but always accessible. His references to ancient times, mythology, literary works, current science and media are fun if you know them, inspire you to look them up if you don’t, but they never intimidate or slow down the story-telling.
I hope that more and more people will not only enjoy this novel, but also come to see the wisdom of his words and begin to apply them in their own lives, their societies, and their systems. We so need it!
