Sarantos Continues Being a Day Dreamer And Releases A New Music Video.
Has anyone ever had their dream come true? This music video is probably one that Sarantos is most proud of as it involves clouds, drones, green screens and is downright pretty cool especially because it is very relatable to the everyday person!
Sarantos feels like all of his dreams are coming true. Excluding instrumentals, this new rock song “Dreamer” achieved the best reviews to date. Sarantos is proud to preach to anyone who will listen. There is no reason to wait for fate or chance. Everyone should follow their dreams and see where they lead. This music video is essentially about a boy who finally reaches for the stars, and with a little help from up above, makes it to the dream girl.
“I feel like all of my dreams are coming true,” says Sarantos. “This rock song has gotten incredible reviews and it’s been rated the highest out of all my songs which is perfect because I’ve always been a dreamer. There’s no doubt about that but I’ve always worked hard to get what I want and nothing’s been handed to me. I’ve never been scared of work. I definitely get that from my dad. However, there is one thing that I’ve never pursued yet always dreamed about. I’ve been scared silly to admit for my entire life how much I really wanted to be a rock star! That all changed with my father’s death and I decided to go for it. That’s the story of how I got started down this path and launched my solo musical career. My only regret is that I waited this long to go for it. My advice to everyone out there is to follow your heart. There’s no reason not to!”
Sarantos’ unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as “an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic ’80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music.”
Since 2014, Sarantos has won over 25 awards with Akademia LA Music and Beat 100, while also being nominated for the International Music & Entertainment Awards and the Hollywood Songwriting Awards. Even without ever using a professional music studio, label, ad agency or radio promoters, Sarantos’ song, “What If I Never See You Again,” was in the top 200 on the major lists in the US for radio airplay, according to the Digital Radio Tracker Top 200 charts. On the independent charts, Sarantos was in the top 10. He was on both of these lists for most of 2015!
33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to St. Jude. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

About the Book
Title: Killer Pursuit
Author: Jeff Gunhus
When a secret webcam is found in the Georgetown bedroom of a murdered high-society call girl, everyone in Washington, DC wants the recording…especially the killer.
After a high-society call girl is brutally murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is a webcam with an encrypted connection…and no-one knows who’s on the other end. Whoever has the recordings has embarrassing leverage against some of the most powerful men in DC, not to mention a video of the murder showing the identity of the killer.
FBI Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder because of the murder’s similarity to a case she worked a year earlier. Allison knows the most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but rumors that the victim’s client list may include some of Washington’s most powerful men makes her doubt the director’s motives. As she starts her investigation, she quickly discovers that she’s not the only one pursuing the recording…but that the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.
Jeff Gunhus is the author thriller and horror novels for adults and the middle grade/YA series, The Templar Chronicles.

After his experience with his son, he is passionate about helping parents reach young reluctant readers and is active in child literacy issues. As a father of five, he leads an active lifestyle in Maryland with his wife Nicole by trying to constantly keep up with their kids. In rare moments of quiet, he can be found in the back of the City Dock Cafe in Annapolis working on his next novel.

I don’t often do book signings. Mainly because I get as nervous s a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs 🙂 So you can imagine how nervous I felt leading up to my book signing yesterday.
Nerves – public appearances. For a moment I had the image of my first public appearance as an author. It was 2009, in Samara, Russia. When I gave a talk to a room full of students. Needless to say, that first time bombed in an epic way, and that one though came back to haunt me yesterday. 😦
Thankfully, those nerves hit the highway after a good friend gave me a pep talk, and away I went 🙂
The signing in itself was pretty cool. Joining me was the antagonist of The Chosen Series, Jamiesonn (played by Scott Reid), the ASJ Publishing street team (Zara and Rochelle), and fellow author Danielle M. Maistry.
