Columbine

Tags Requested

true crime, murder, teen

Description

On April 20, 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold left an indelible stamp on the American psyche. Their goal was simple: to blow up their school, Oklahoma City-style, and to leave “a lasting impression on the world.” Their bombs failed, but the ensuing shooting defined a new era of school violence-irrevocably branding every subsequent shooting “another Columbine.”

When we think of Columbine, we think of the Trench Coat Mafia; we think of Cassie Bernall, the girl we thought professed her faith before she was shot; and we think of the boy pulling himself out of a school window-the whole world was watching him. Now, in a riveting piece of journalism nearly ten years in the making, comes the story none of us knew. In this revelatory book, Dave Cullen has delivered a profile of teenage killers that goes to the heart of psychopathology. He lays bare the callous brutality of mastermind Eric Harris and the quavering, suicidal Dylan Klebold, who went to the Columbine prom three days earlier and obsessed about love in his journal.

The result is an astonishing account of two good students with lots of friends, who were secretly stockpiling a basement cache of weapons, recording their raging hatred, and manipulating every adult who got in their way. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold left signs everywhere, described by Cullen with a keen investigative eye and psychological acumen. Drawing on hundreds of interviews, thousands of pages of police files, FBI psychologists, and the boys’ tapes and diaries, he gives the first complete account of the Columbine High School massacre.

In the tradition of Helter Skelter and In Cold Blood, Columbine is destined to be a classic. A close-up portrait of violence, a community rendered helpless, and police blunders and cover-ups, it is a compelling and utterly human portrait of two killers–an unforgettable cautionary tale for our time

orphanage, depression era, nuns

Description

Growing up in a two-parent home during the Great Depression was certainly no picnic, but living in an orphanage run by dozens of nuns was undoubtedly worse.

Just ask Terry Gelormino Silver, the author of Nunzilla Was My Mother and My Stepmother Was a Witch. Terry spent her formative years under the care of so-called pious nuns who acted as if her very existence was a cross to bear. For so many years she kept these memories inside, as if waiting for the proper moment in time to let them out. Well, that time has come, and it is her readers who are the richer for it.

Shining with rare insight and vivid descriptions that ably present a world most people can only imagine, this compelling memoir still manages to capture the magic of childhood and the anxiety of adolescence while granting readers a new understanding of an innocent era.

YESHUA

Tags Requested

Description

e novel is based on a statement by Edgar Cayce, the late American prophet, that Jesus had visited “Persia, India, Syria and Egypt to complete His education.” The author has thoroughly researched early Indian and Middle-Eastern history. He illustrates conditions in which such an education might have taken place to prepare Jesus for his ministry. As the story unfolds, Satia, the son of a wealthy caravan owner. meets the 12-year-old Yeshua (Jesus) as the latter flees in rebellion from his Essene teachers. The two become fast friends and stay that way for the 18 years not covered in the Bible—the years between the finding of Jesus in the Temple and the beginning of his short ministry.

This is a novel of ideas and philosophy. (Montreal Review of Books)

We know the beginning and the end of this story; it’s the bit in the middle that has taxed scholars and believers for two thousand years. Stan Law’s take on the awakening of Jesus between age 12 and 30 in Asia Minor, India and Egypt is fascinating, educational and entertaining. (A. J. Forrest, Spain)

One of the most enjoyable reads I have had this year. I congratulate you. (Harvie D. Walford, Vancouver)

A Collection of Wordstreams

Tags Requested

Poetry, essays, kindle

Description

Since the early 1970s, Mark Mann has been writing prose poems and poetry, which he calls wordstreams in part because they start out as stream of consciousness writing. He usually writes his wordstreams in his journals, and then later he begins the process of revising them. A Collection of Wordstreams consists of over 90 poems, prose poems and vignettes selected from eight different books that he plans to publish separately. The titles of the different sections of this collection reflect the wide range of themes he explores: Capturing the Essence of the Moment, Until I Awake in the Country, The Ghosts of the Goddesses, Lovestreams, The Wiley Wizard, Teenage Travails and Exhilarations, Travelstreams and Spiritstreams. He writes about the meanings of moments in time and cycles, spiritual pursuits, exploring alternate realities beyond space and time, longing for love and romance and intimacy, experiencing the magic in everyday life, travel insights and experiences, life stages, including the teenage years, and the imbalances and positive potentials in modern society. These writings have a wide range of emotional tones: romantic, longing, passionate, whimsical, satirical, socially-concerned, reaffirming, optimistic, liberating and reflective.

Therapy: A Novel

Tags Requested

literary fiction, May-December romance, therapy

Description

The Clarion Review says, “Harrie Rose’s debut novel brilliantly explores the causes and effects of depression and anxiety, as well as how early experiences shape one’s life for good or ill…Rose balances the intricacies of the therapist-patient relationship with a fascinating yarn about a woman recognizing the contradictory influences on her life and ultimately coming into her own….Therapy is recommended for anyone who enjoys a meaty read with a strong female protagonist.” Written in a vivid first person narrative that sweeps the reader along, this bold novel introduces Barbara, a 52 year old woman who has it all. So why is she sunk in an abyss of depression? Barbara is so real that, as one reader said, “I’d love to get in a car and drive along the country roads until I find Barbara’s house, so we can chat over coffee.” Delving into the complexities of psychiatry, from its necessity to its folly, the author recounts Barbara’s journey to a realization of her true worth. But is this because of her therapist or despite him? What are his true motives? the moral and ethical issues Barbara ultimately faces make excellent fodder for discussions. This is a superb choice for book clubs, but also for individuals. Despite the media’s message that you must fight old age, Barbara proves that maturity itself has its own beauty, both inner and outer. Even the young admire her for her warmth, wisdom, and guts. Like the flowers in the gardens she grows, Barbara is reborn after a winter of despair.

Mouflon Brigade

Tags Requested

thriller, Cyprus, espionage

Description

In the third of the Koniotis Mystery series, the kidnapping of the wife of the Russian intelligence chief on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, is only the beginning of a chain of horrifying kidnappings and murders to suddenly hit the usually peaceful island. An operation extending over the border between the Greek and Turkish zones reveals that a band of terrorists is operating freely—and with local assistance—on the island. The subsequent kidnapping of a UN official en route to Middle East peace talks in Beirut, Lebanon, and the murder of other prominent well-connected citizens ups the ante in the threat of the terrorist band and increases the mystery of what the band—the Mouflon Brigade—is doing and why.

The kidnaps and murders are linked by the tokens the band leaves behind: Identical brochures from the Cyprus Airways, the Greek Cypriot airline, which are marked with the initials “MB” in black marker.

Soon the action extends beyond Cyprus to Greece and Lebanon, as slowly, methodically, Takis Koniotis marshals the forces of the Greek Cypriot, Turkish Cypriot, foreign diplomatic community, UN, and Interpol resources to attempt to rescue the Caitlyn and the other hostages and to determine what the terrorist band is doing in Cyprus, why its operations are strategic for Middle East peace—and why it always seems to be at least one step ahead of the authorities.

As the police scramble to discover what is going on, and why, an unpopular Canadian program to bring the police forces of the two sides of the divided island together for training in new investigation techniques sees the senior investigators from both the Turkish and Greek sides of the Island suddenly in the same room together, giving opportunity for cooperation now as never before. With a growing number of foreign residents’ lives ending in bloodshed and murder, will Caitlyn’s insights be conveyed in time to her new husband. And will they help the chief of investigations of foreigner crime in Greek Cyprus, or help his Turkish Cypriot counterpart? Can the murderer be stopped before Caitlyn herself becomes the next victim?

The Path of Innocence

Tags Requested

women’s fiction, contemporary romance, romance

Description

‘The Path of Innocence’ is a contemporary romance which explores the challenges faced by Fiona and Roger, two young innocents from opposing class backgrounds in the UK, as they journey towards adulthood along a turbulent path of self discovery, love and sexual awakening. We follow their struggles and witness the pain they suffer as a result of showing too much trust, only to be betrayed.

Fiona is strong-willed and idealistic, a firm believer in true love and family values, but her naivety leads her into compromising situations which test the strength of her resolve, making it difficult for her to live up to her own standards.

Roger, on the other hand, is emotionally scarred by an unhappy childhood and, more recently, the untimely loss of his mother. His encounters gouge ever deeper wounds which leave him disillusioned and erode his trust in others. It takes a huge leap of faith for him to let Fiona into his affections.

When they eventually meet and fall in love, it seems that they have finally found the happiness that has, so far, eluded them both. Yet, they are unaware of the powerful struggle Debbie, Fiona’s mother, has with her own conflicting desires and which threatens to bring their happiness crashing down.
Debbie’s journey is an important theme and the book explores her inner turmoil, wrestling with her contradictory emotions as she cares for her invalid husband whilst also nurturing a burning sexual desire.
The dramatic consequence of Fiona and Roger discovering her dark secret threatens to shatter their beliefs in everything, including their future together, and the question of whether their love can survive hangs in the balance until the last page.

The Unbreakable Child

child abuse, memoir, religion

Description

Abuse of children is always appalling and unforgiveable, whether perpetrated by a parent, a relative or a stranger. There’s an added layer of disgrace to the crime when the perpetrators abuse not only children but their own authority and religious power.

Such was the case with the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth at the St. Thomas/St. Vincent Orphanage, where more than a dozen nuns, a resident priest, and several other male employees routinely abused the boys and girls in their care. Author Kim Michele Richardson survived years of physical and emotional abuse at their hands in the 1960s, that began at infancy.

Years later, she and forty-four other survivors, including her sisters, launched a lawsuit against the nuns. That suit resulted in the first-ever settlement paid by Roman Catholic nuns in the United States as compensation for decades of institutional abuse at an orphanage. The Unbreakable Child interweaves past through present. An inspiring story of a girl who would not be broken.

Hell and Gone

Military Thriller, Mens Fiction, War Novel

Description

A black market Russian tactical nuke. Religious extremists who must conquer at any cost. An alienated teenager with a deathwish. An Israeli city. These ingredients compose a terrifying recipe for US intelligence.

How can suicidal killer Bassam Amin be stopped before the Israelis take action…without assistance from the US military; without fracturing the Coalition Against Terror; and without triggering global jihad?

All hopes are pinned on retired commando “Rocco” Cavarra and twelve other alpha male SpecOps veterans who have never worked together. They must plow through an African civil war; infiltrate a heavily defended desert fortress; wrestle the WMD away from Amin and his fellow sociopaths while surrounded and outnumbered by desperate proportions; then waltz out of harm’s way without tipping off the local warlords or genocidal government. No problem–hooyah! But how should Rocco’s Retreads handle the hard-charging Mossad agents Israel dropped into the hornet’s nest to help with the mission–or was it to frag Cavarra and take over the operation themselves?

Only a maniac would volunteer for such an ate-up mission. Only a monster would use an A-Bomb for terror. Both maniacs and monsters are on a collision course that could blow the whole world to hell and gone.

After her almost-wedding to a bigamist, successful children’s author Braeden McKay has given up on love. She’s content to live vicariously through her imaginary heroine, Platypus Pearl, and a gaggle of adventurous, web-footed cohorts — until a working vacation in New Orleans shakes up her quiet, structured world.

Cursed nickel or unfortunate happenstance? Sanderson Montgomery isn’t one to discount the supernatural beliefs of others. This is The Big Easy, after all, Mecca to the spiritual and the superstitious. As a veteran detective, neither does he ignore cold, hard fact. And the fact is, someone or something is bent on harming Braeden McKay, and it’s up to him to protect her while keeping his heart out of the mix.

Chatham Square

letters, mystery, savannah

Description

It is seemingly a coincidence that master doll maker Ginny Standler inherits a co-op apartment fronting on the Chatham Square of Savannah, Georgia, from her Aunt Marie while simultaneously being offered an interim teaching position at Savannah’s College of Art and Design. Both circumstances enable and propel her to escape the Fan district of Richmond, Virginia, and its constant reminders of a romance having gone disturbingly sour and giving Ginny pause to question her value system and relationships with others.

Dropped unceremoniously in the quirky charm of Savannah’s park-laced historical district—and most significantly into contact with the people who live and thrive in that environment—Ginny quickly becomes entwined with a grouchy recluse; a sour, erratic, and sometimes irrational bag lady; a young girl direly in need of healing; a young waiter laughing through his tears; a bitter poet; and a possible new love interest. And she just as quickly becomes embroiled in the individual letter-signaled mysteries of this set of characters that both repels and compels them one from another—but that somehow makes them a caring community. A community that Ginny comes to suspect her Aunt Marie has purposely enfolded her into to begin the healing in her own life.

This charming and inspirational story reflects perfectly what makes the beautifully designed and peopled southern city of Savannah the special place that it is.

Tara from the Tar Pits

Horror, Science Fiction, Black Comedy

Description

An edgy and quirky horror story, heavy on black humor, about a sweet young girl named Tara who falls into the La Brea tar pits, almost drowns, but comes out VERY transformed… from a kind-hearted vegetarian…into a cold-blooded cannibalistic killer.

It’s a highly original story and a very bloody black comedy, set in one of ‘glamorous’ LA’s most famous, and certainly its oldest landmark…the La Brea tar pits. (Though it’s definitely not its most glamorous.) Then again, being the only one in the city who’s possessed by a prehistoric killer could be considered far more glamorous than some manufactured celebrity, any day.

Will she be captured and killed by the police? Can she be found by her loved ones before it’s too late?

Watch out, City of Angels. “It” was here first…and it’s back!

Last Exit in New Jersey

Exit, New Jersey, Boating Mystery

Description

20 year-old Hazel Moran is anything but your typical Jersey girl. Raised aboard a schooner and riding shotgun beside her father in their old tractor-trailer truck, there’s little on the road or water she can’t handle; it’s her people skills that need some work. She doesn’t see that as an issue – behind the wheel of a hulking Kenworth most people tend to leave her alone. But when Hazel and her father become the targets of some unsavory characters hunting for her blue-haired cousin, their stolen truck and a delivery that never arrived, trouble starts piling up fast.

For ten sweltering days Hazel navigates the Garden State’s highways and shorelines, contending with a suspiciously wealthy stranger, white trash, Born Agains, appliance salesmen, an unstable stalker and his curiously troublesome companion. It’ll take all her ingenuity, not to mention some fishing tackle and high voltage, if Hazel hopes to protect her family and unravel this tangle of greed and betrayal. Through it all she’ll learn the hard way who she can and can’t trust… and anyone who gets too close to Hazel, no matter their intent, will discover this quiet young woman is not someone you want to mess with. With no other options and nowhere to turn, Hazel sets in motion her own twisted plan to uncover the truth, settle some scores, and if possible, not wind up dead in the process.

Somewhat hard-boiled, slightly noir, Last Exit in New Jersey is an offbeat tale that travels from a Delaware Bay ghost-town to metropolitan north Jersey, where boats and big rigs set the scene for danger, suspense, dark humor and an unlikely bit of romance.

God: A Long Time Ago in a Galilean Far, Far Away

Jesus of Nazareth, The Passion of The Christ, More Than a Carpenter

Description

It was prophesied in the ancient writings of the Old Testament that God would one day manifest Himself as a man. This simple and beautiful promise was finally fulfilled in a man named Jesus very early in the first century. Sadly, however, it was also foretold by the New Testament apostles that the true and full identity of Jesus Christ would be very soon attacked, altered and even denied by many (including some self-proclaimed Christians).
Using Scripture as its primary source of data and a pleasing array of insightful anecdotes, this book skillfully shatters the modern, pre-fabricated and man-made ideas concerning Christ that have gradually infiltrated modern Christianity. It aptly presents the first, pure and original doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ that birthed the original New Testament church. It revitalizes the untainted truth that abundantly prevailed and flourished throughout the first century of Christianity. This book is an indispensable asset only for those who are passionate lovers of truth and for those who desire the purest revelation of the full and true identity of Jesus Christ.

Marlin, Darlin

Murder Mystery,  Florida Murder Mystery,  Florida Beach Reading

Description

Introducing the most lovable, pratfall-prone female sleuth in recent memory, this first novel in the Garnet Sullivan Live from Florida series will leave the reader in stitches and begging for more. Marlin, Darlin’ debuts the engaging, redoubtable and often annoying (to her colleagues and friends) small town journalist, the foxy Garnet Sullivan. A murky murder during a marlin fishing tournament forms the basis for this sizzling, uproarious mystery set in contemporary, steamy east coast Florida, featuring the unsinkable freelance reporter, snoop and trouble-maker, Garnet Sullivan, and a host of her bizarre, colorful friends.

A Gordian knot of a plot fairly gallops along from page one to the final page and will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat until the novel’s last words. Saturated with today’s most authentic Florida ambience and whackos, Marlin, Darlin’ is sure to delight the most cerebral mystery buffs as well as fans of romantic comedy—and dog lovers too! The novel is propelled by laugh out loud characters, scenes and situations reminiscent of Carl Hiassen and Dave Barry, but with more lipstick and purses. Fully imagined and drawn from life characters hook the reader from the book’s first sentences and the story seems to vault inevitably from who these characters are—nutty and flamboyantly so, but completely convincing, and whose native habitat could only be Florida.

A Study of Arabic Phonology

Arabic studies, arabic, foreign language

Description

Phonology is the study of the changes that can affect a word, and sometimes even two words, for different reasons relating to a certain implied heaviness, like the existence of two identical letters or two letters that are close to each other or a hamza or a weak letter. The phonological changes are recognized as the assimilation of a letter to another, the substitution of a letter for another, the addition or elision of a letter or vowel and the transfer of a letter or vowel to another position. This study explores in detail when these changes are necessary, allowed or forbidden. The presentation of the rich data, the theoretical analyzes of the phonological elements and the references to the different works from the classical period of the 8th century until our days, offer a detailed and accessible study for both the students and researchers of Arabic.

To quote Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, “though we have heard of stupid haste in war, cleverness has never been seen associated with long delays.” I can say “don’t delay in adding this beautifully edited version of the Art Of War to your collection immediately.” From the battlefield to the boardroom Sun Tzu’s leaves you his tremendous legacy for strategy when dealing with any opponent, using The Art Of War.

At the end of the 21st century, a catastrophic accident in the asteroid belt has left two surveyors dead, but the asteroid itself is completely missing, along with their young son, Alex Manez, who was accompanying them.

On the outer edge of the solar system, the first manned mission to Pluto, led by the youngest female astronaut in NASA history, has led to an historic discovery: there is a marker left there by an alien race for humankind to find. We are not alone!

While studying the alien marker, it begins to react and, four hours later, the missing asteroid appears in a Plutonian orbit, along with young Alex Manez, who has developed some alarming side-effects from his exposure to the kinetic element they call Kinemet.

From the depths of a criminal empire based on Luna, an expatriate seizes the opportunity to wrest control of outer space, and takes swift action.

The secret to faster-than-light speed is up for grabs, and the race for interstellar space is on!

A Breath Floats By

Tags Requested:

Contemporary, Reincarnation,  Spirituality

Description

What would you do if you realized you married your best friend’s soul mate? If your sacred work petrifies you with consequences that you glimpse from past lives? But what becomes of your soul group if you do not keep your promise this lifetime?

A Breath Floats By is an astonishing, gentle love story examining strong currents beneath the thin veneer of modern life. Where the reader is barely aware they walk at the edge of the Veil of Life.

Lindsay realizes she has reached the age when one gets away with nothing. She is terrified to begin her true life work and faces the death of her husband, Sam. She is taken underwing by someone she would rather not know, then becomes aware the woman is vying for Sam’s heart. Beyond forgivable. Through it all, Lindsay realizes her soul group needs her more than she needs them, especially her husband’s best friend, Daniel.

Lindsay, Heather Laurel and Gooee. Strong, genuine characters well over forty, dealing with divorce, security, forgiveness, faith and death. Each finding their greatest challenge is the raw honesty required to face the complexity of their love affairs.

Within a timely romance of lifetimes anew in the Great Lakes Region’s Door Country, a swirling spiritually-charged world is exposed.

Comparable light metaphysical vein, such as the movie Dragonfly with Kevin Kostner, or August Rush. Friendship fiction light with humor, example being Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood.

During our era of spiritual awakening, despite belief in reincarnation, readers exploring transformation and soul-growth may never again view a coincidence in the same light.

A Breath Floats By. Where spiritual answers sometimes come with unrelenting force.

Shannon Mallory was a woman on the run….not from outside forces but from her own wounded heart. When she pulled up into the parking lot of The Last Resort Café, in the town of Sanctuary, little did she know she would find the one thing she never even knew she was searching for….true love.

Seth Proudfoot wasn’t looking for anything, except an end to his miserable existence. Accused of a crime he couldn’t remember committing, he was ostracized by a town that, ironically, bore the name of the one thing he could never find….Sanctuary.

When the two meet, neither can ignore the magnetic pull between them, but will Shannon allow her damaged spirit to trust a man…a man who may have murdered his own family?

Though Shannon is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, it is her spirit that breaks down the iron-clad shield around his heart.

Lessons from an Evil Mind

Dark fantasy, horror, thriller

Description

My life is something that I
have always cherished. But for
the past three years is something that I pray will fade.
My body is weak and my soul weaker, and I find myself unsure
how much more pain and torture I can take.
Often I wonder what my life would be like if I had allowed someone
to be with on my wedding day. Would I be with the one I love? Or
has it always been my destiny to live with the evil that now binds me
to this dungeon?
All questions that may never be answered.
My body cringes as once again I hear the footsteps of my captor.
He is coming closer to the door! As fast as my weakened body will
allow, I run to the middle of the room to take my position. This is not
an option; you must be sitting on your knees, hands tucked within
your lap, and head faced down. If you are not in this position, you will
be taught a lesson . . . a lesson you don’t want to learn.
His hot breath on my neck indicates that I have broken a rule.
My body and mind – now in complete fear; I sit and await the wrath
I know he is about to put upon me.
The silence, unnerving, is more then my mind can handle.
Screaming only within myself, I leave my fear unseen, unheard.

Shawna Lynn takes readers on a ride filled with the stark realism of abuse, hope, and survival. It is a story that tells us that there is good in the world, and that the human spirit, despite its many set backs, will always triumph in the end.

When 19 year old Bethel Newton accuses Elias Claymore of raping her, America is deeply divided on the issue. In his youth, Claymore was a Black power militant, as well as a convicted rapist and escaped convict.

But when Andi makes an issue of the under-representation of African-Americans on the jury, she starts receiving anonymous threats. Meanwhile Alex finds holes in the prosecution case, such as the victim’s description of the attacker as well as her own past. But he hits a major obstacle when he comes up against the DNA evidence.

Over the course of the trial, Alex must battle his way through jury tampering and a malicious computer hacker to find out who is telling the truth.

“Janie is one of the best fictional characters I’ve come across in a long time — beaten but not broken, earthy yet innocent, a thoroughly modern saint. . . . at the end of the book, I almost broke into tears. And you have the stylistic sophistication to be able to blend gritty realism and outright magic and pull it off. In short, VIRGIN BLOOD is a marvelous book.” — Dave King, Dave King Editorial Services http://www.davekingedits.com

“Stop it, Dewie,” Marilyn said. “You can’t treat people like this.” Dewie shoved Mrs. King Kong to the side and pushed his face right up to Marilyn’s. “Let’s get one thing straight right now. I. Can. Do. Whatever. The. Hell. I. Want.” He lightly slapped her upside her head, knocking her against the wall, sending several more pictures falling to the floor. She tried to stand up straight, but winced and remained stooped forward. “I promised you’d be first, and I aim to keep my promises. Hell, I’m near about ready for you. I ain’t had no pussy since I raped Janie last night.” “I knew it was you,” Marilyn said. If you’re like most readers, you hope to find 4 things in the novels you read: 1. Heroes you love to love. 2. Villains you love to hate. 3. Nerve-ripping suspense. 4. A heart-squeezing, unforeseen conclusion. If do like imaginative elements intermixed with nitty gritty reality . . . if you like Stephen King . . . if you like Dean R. Koontz . . . you’ll enjoy VIRGIN BLOOD. To the late-night ER staff struggling to save her life, Janie Braxton one more big city crime victim. But to the spirit of an ancient Native American chief who once reigned supreme over the middle of pre-Columbian North America, she’s an incomplete sacrifice holding the key to regaining his long-lost power. Pursued by Janie’s rapist Dewie and his gang, her two small daughters trek through the mean streets of St Louis . . .

Some reviews:

It’s intriguing to contemplate Law’s interpretations of scripture, ancient poetry and musings, and modern cosmology. An extraordinary puzzle audaciously put together! How he can sustain what is basically a stream of consciousness for 300 spellbinding pages reminds of Mozart’s tour de forces of weaving together four or more counterpoints.” (Kate Jones, Pasadena, USA.)

“It is fascinating to watch a man to—literally—give up the world for the love of a woman. Fascinating!” (Joanne Brown, Montreal, PQ.)

“Never has our subconscious been explored in such depths and discernment. It seems that our conscious mind is but a tip of a twelve-billion-year-old iceberg.” (Jim Mc Laughlin, Calgary, Alta.)

The Twiller

humor, science fiction, funny

Description

Ian Harebungler, our hapless hero, just can’t catch a break. First, the deli ran out of his favorite cucumber sandwiches. Then he left the gas on at home. But the lowlight was being abducted from his front yard by a particularly ill-mannered alien, one who apparently doesn’t believe in anesthetic, no less. Fortunately, Ian is saved by an unlikely ally: the Twiller, whose bravery is somewhat overshadowed by its uncanny resemblance to a floating yellow marshmallow with big eyes.

The Twiller follows the adventures of Ian and his newfound companion as they are whisked around the Universe, and Ian learns how difficult it can be to find his way home to a backwater planet called “Earth.” Along the way, Ian must survive the traffic of El Leigh, the enthusiastic protestors of Bez Erkeley, and rampaging politicians in the city of WMD. Even worse, he must contend with exorbitant prices in the city of York, endure the heat and crazy drivers in Fleur Ida, and struggle to escape the small planet of “Huh? Why E?” before he contracts island fever. Astute readers might pick up on subtle correlations to real places here on Earth, but my lawyers have reminded me to state that such resemblances are purely coincidental.

As it starts to dawn on Ian that the bizarre planets he visits suffer from many of the same problems, comical situations, and inane rules all too familiar to him, he stumbles upon an important secret that gives his quest to return home added urgency. Can Ian make it home? Will he arrive in time to prevent a terrible catastrophe? And can he find a flight without a Saturday night stopover? The answer lies with the Twiller…

Zellie Wells has a devastating crush on Avery Adams, the son of her mom’s high school sweetheart. At her sixteenth birthday party, held in the basement of her dad’s church, she finally finds the courage to talk to him. Turns out, the devastating crush is mutual.

As Avery takes her hand and leads her out onto the makeshift dance floor, Zellie is overwhelmed by her first vision of his death; shocking because not only are they both covered in his blood, but they’re old, like 35, and she is pregnant.

Afraid to tell anyone about the vision, (she’d just be labeled a freaky black magic witch, right?) Zellie keeps the knowledge of Avery’s future to herself and tries to act like any other teenager in love. When they get caught on their way to a secret rendezvous by her mom and his dad, they are forbidden to see each other.

Convinced that their parents are freaking out unnecessarily, Avery and Zellie vow to be together no matter what. They continue their relationship in secret until Zellie learns that their parents are just trying to prevent her and Avery from suffering like they did. The visions are hereditary, they’re dangerous, and if they stay together the visions will come true.

Now Zellie must choose between severing all ties with Avery, like her mom did to prevent his father’s death, and finding a way to change Avery’s future.

Luther’s Song: Dreams of the Ringed Vale

Fantasy, Elves, Magic

Description

First Summer’s Eve has come and all elves celebrate as the black moon’s shadow fades from the world. It is also Luthiel’s fifteenth birthday. With it come two extraordinary and dangerous surprises: a Wyrd Stone, its silvery heart a window into a world of dreams and nightmares, and a Blade Dancer, dreaded protector of the Faelands, who bears a dark message. Instead of celebration, Luthiel is given a terrible choice: if she does nothing, someone she loves deeply will die. Or to save a life, she can break the most perilous law of the Faelands, and venture alone to the Vale of Mists. If she chooses the journey, she must race Othalas — eldest and most feared of all the werewolves — past great back spiders who weave webs out of nightmares, through glittering mists with the power to reshape flesh, and at last into death by the teeth of dark and ancient Vyrl, who feed on the blood of elves. Either choice will bring death — unless Luthiel can find the secret in her remarkable Stone, a secret that even the nightmares fear.

Luther’s Song: The War of Mists

Fantasy, Elves, Magic

Description

She chose to die in her sister’s place and yet she lived. Luthiel, just 15 years old, made a brave peace with the dreaded Vyrl of the Vale of Mists. Now she must face an army sent to destroy them. With her companions — the werewolf Othalas, the dragon Melkion, the sorcerer Mithorden, a Vyrl named Ecthellien, and the elf Vaelros who would love her — Luthiel races back to the angry faelands to beg forgiveness for monsters. Who, if any, will survive the journey? For the Vale is surrounded by the webs of Widdershae, and the only other path leads to the Red Moon — where an ancient evil waits in the flames. Beyond the Vale, the home she left is not the same. Armies march for vengeance. Powers play their hands in a game of ages. In the sky something evil stirs. Rumors of a dark prophecy. Whispers of a “Blood Witch.” And signs foretelling an ancient doom terrible enough to destroy worlds.

Tales from the Keeper of the Myths: Cherokee Stories for Children

American Indian, Native American, myths

Description

Storytelling was one of the most popular pastimes in the winter for both Native American children and adults. The Native American storytellers were superb actors. Flute music was played around the fires in the center of the huts or lodges and served as background music when the stories were told. The facial expressions, voices and gestures of the storytellers almost told the tale without words as they fascinated their listeners with amazing stories, tales of adventure and myths and legends of the magical days of long ago.

One of the sacred duties of the elders of the tribes was to hand down the traditions to the younger generations. Thus, the winter storytelling preserved the continuity of the Cherokee tribes by keeping alive their history and traditions. The best storytellers were highly respected by their people; not only were they entertainers, but also teachers, historians and guardians, or Keepers of the Myths.

The Basics & Intricacies of Arabic Morphology

Arabic, dictionaries and thesauruses, foreign languages

Description

Despite the amount of material about Arabic grammar, phonology, and morphology, the need for a book combining an independent study in morphology with theoretical discussions is more than evident. This book fills that void by proposing an in-depth analysis of various morphological issues based on the seven classes of verbs and their nine derivatives. These classical classes are the strong verb, the doubled, the hamzated, the verb with 1st radical w or y, the verb with 2nd radical w or y, the verb with 3rd radical w or y, and the verb that is doubly weak. The nine derivatives are the perfect, imperfect, imperative, infinitive noun, active participle, passive participle, noun of time, noun of place and noun of instrument. The different sections introduce several paradigms of verbs, a carefully explored data and explicit information about the morphological structures and the various phonological changes that can affect them, such as the addition, transfer or elision of a vowel or letter, the assimilation of two letters and the substitution of one letter for another. The study pays also particular attention to the most representative works from the 8th century until our days.

Plague strikes at the heart of Sarum and flesh-eating mawgs have been seen in the sewers.

As Governor Gen struggles to save the populace, the Abbey of Pardes is attacked by an army of undead and a piece of the legendary Sun Stone is stolen from the Grey Abbot.

The holy knight, Deacon Shader, is sent to the plague-city to retrieve it, but he is a man with conflicts of his own, and a destiny that will test his faith to the limits.

If Shader should fail, the Sun Stone will fall into the hands of a being from the mists of pre-history who will harness its power to unweave all of Creation.

“Rich and varied, touching, maddening, and addicting. Elegant, polished, and believable characters in an amazing world.”

Archelle Baker (eBook Alchemy)

“Ever-widening in its scope – fearless in its telling.
I cannot help but be reminded of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, not just in the interweaving of time epochs and worlds but also in the author’s sheer fearlessness.
From earth to heaven to alternate worlds, the story is unrelenting in its incredible vision.”

David Dalglish (author of “The Half-Orcs” series)

“Complex and intriguing; intelligent and engaging; descriptive enough to invoke all senses.
The style is a nice mix–fast-paced and contemporary, yet with classical prose and imagery to satisfy those of us who love the ‘old masters’.”

C.S. Marks (author of “Elfhunter”)

Situations

Tags Requested:

Description

In life, we have all had experiences most would find too unbelievable to even imagine. We have all lived through situations that have changed our lives forever. Situations is a poignant example of how three powerful Black women discover who they are as they face love, life and loss. Through the eyes of three friends, Situations explores how their relationships, friends and reactions to certain situations shape their paths.

Dominquic Du Chae, a former model turned businesswoman, has found herself stuck in a marriage full of lies and deceit. Struggling as brand new mother to a precious baby girl, she yearns for attention from her White husband. Not to be ignored, she turns to her best friends and her father for advice and support. Finally deciding to leave the hell she has called a marriage, she finds herself starting over in a new town with a new career and with a new love interest- Charles Tennon.

Vickie McGee is one of Dominquic closest friends. Being that she lives in Detroit running her very successful Salon and Day Spa AllStars, she doesn’t have the time for anything- except chasing the next available man or woman. Her sexual exploits have now put Vickie in a situation that she can barley figure out how she got into, let alone out — until an old love reminds her of deeds pasts. Now that her actions have finally caught up to her, she is left alone and expecting a new life inside her.

Trisha Syles, model/actress is having a hard time dealing with her own home front. Married to an extremely busy White film director, she hardly has time to see him. All she had was Dominquic, not being too fond of Vickie, she did somehow tolerate her. Trisha needs to feel wanted and if that doesn’t happen, she is lost inside. Upon her husband’s return from a work project, she runs into her former fiancé, Charles Tennon whom she happened to still have some feelings for, only to find out that he has two children by two different women. With that in mind she only has one thing on her mind – to seduce Charles and get back at her husband for leaving her alone – when tragedy strikes her marriage.

Told through each ones point of view, Situations will make you laugh and cry as you relive the humor, drama and the pain so prevalent in their lives. Through the eyes of three powerful black women, the reader is given a chance to experience how three very different women deal with love, life and loss.

In Whom Should I Trust

Tags Requested:

fiction, urban, drama

Description

Trust is something that can be easily lost, however hard to regain. When you surround yourself with people that you think are there for you, the harsh reality is its one man or one woman for themselves. In Whom Should I Trust brings to life some of those harsh realities through friendships, marriages and business.
MaDamn is a talented singer/songwriter who just wants to get her music off the ground and be more than just a local celebrity. With the help of her manger/boyfriend DeAnthony, she is preparing for the next stage in her life. Unfortunately, reality set in and the life she was preparing for becomes disrupted by lies, betrayal and dysfunction.
DeAnthony tries to be the best he can be by being a great promoter and manager to his talented girlfriend MaDamn. Yet can never shake the feeling he wasn’t good enough for her. With her turning down his marriage proposal, DeAnthony tried to stay focused on his work both for her and for him, yet temptation makes a way back into his life. He is left to choose which way is better for him.
Charles, loving husband, music producer for one of the top recording studios in Atlanta loves his new life being married to Dominquic. While enjoying his new love, drama comes around the corner from dealing with his son’s mother. Yet that doesn’t stop him from trying to make everything work in his favor. With all this going on, he still had the love and support from his wife, but was that enough for him?
Dominquic was taking control of her life and breaking all the rules. No more soccer mom, no more second guessing what she was doing, and trying to please others. Dominquic was married again and now has a house full of three kids. Her daughter and Charles’s two children whom she adored, yet still has struggles with her stepson. Trying to find the balance of work and home, Dominquic decides she wants to spice up her life, but at what cost? Will feelings get hurt? Who wins and who loses?
Vickie, now a mother and still a very successful businesswoman, decides to give men a break for awhile and falls for a woman with control issues and self esteem problems. Being that she was too much of a free spirit for that type of relationship, she lets it go and goes to a more familiar place while learning more about herself as a mother and as a person.
Each action, each decision has a consequence. Without proper judgment, you will never know the outcome of each situation. In Whom Should I Trust brings back some familiar characters and once again told through their eyes, you will see the outcome of their story.

Barking Spiders and Other Such Stuff, Children’s Poetry

Tags Requested:

Poetry for Children, Funny Poems, Children’s Books

Description

“This is a delightfully funny and honest collection of poems that explores the sweet, naive and sometimes scary world of a child. CJ Heck captures the delicate humor and innocent insights that children have about such things as the etiquette of passing gas to talking to your shadow, to thinking that your parents are giants, to riding a “broom horse.” The unique appeal of Barking Spiders is that each poem offers an assurance from someone who understands that children, like adults, wish to make sense of the world they live in … and when it doesn’t make sense? Well, that’s OK too.”

Hidden Wives

Tags Requested:

coming of age, polygamy, contemporary fiction

Description

This undistinguished debut by the pseudonymous Avery (two sisters who were raised in a fundamentalist Catholic community) focuses on a horrifically oppressive Utah religious sect. Young female members of Blood of the Lamb, like sisters Sara and Rachel Shaw, are generally wedded by the age of 15, assigned to be sealed for all time and all eternity in a celestial marriage. Male members, by contrast, can only attain the highest level of heaven by taking at least three wives. Prophet Silver, the movement’s leader, decrees that Sara must marry her father’s half-brother, and singles out the attractive Rachel for his own special attention. Both girls, after exposure to the outside world, consider leaving the community. The violence, sexual abuse, and the predictable consequences of inbreeding aren’t for the faint of heart, but readers should also be prepared for more melodrama than drama. Betty Webb does a better job with the contemporary polygamy theme in Desert Lost.

Starving the Artist

Tags Requested:

copyright, piracy, intellectual property

Description

For a lot of people, creation is their livelihood. For others, it’s where their livelihood ought to be. As Richard Florida wrote in his 2004 book, The Rise of the Creative Class, “Stimulating and glamorous as it may sometimes be, creativity is in fact work…The creative ethos is built on discipline and focus, sweat and blood.”

All music, art, movies, writings and games were brought into being by their creators – and for these creators to have created them, there was some underlying motivation to do so. Without their creators and their motivations, creative works simply would not be.

Why then, in today’s Internet culture, is all creative work expected to be free?
Why is it that some individuals feel it is their right to take things that do not belong to them, without receiving any permission to do so?
Why, in the Internet culture of “free,” are those creations we enjoy and value most the ones that we are most likely to simply take?

This is not a book about copyright, nor is it a book about the evils of free.

Do you want to know what really happened in the tech bubble? How the real-estate boom started? How the world really operates? Can you handle the unvarnished, completely politically-incorrect truth? Don’t assume anything: come out on a TERRACE for a view you never imagined . . .

It’s the end of one century and the beginning of a new. Technological development has become a firestorm, both driving and driven by an economic boom such as the world has never seen. At the core of the inferno, are the people whose lives are inextricably linked to the Silicon Valley and the city of San Francisco. People from the angry Asian-Hispanic beauty Angelina Sumana Ruiz, to the proud, WASP, mega-lawyer Preston Elliott Hughes, Jr.; from the struggling single mother SandyMae Miller, to the egotistical New Economy, CEO John Dorman; from Rasheyd, the Saudi Arabian businessman, to the generation Y, internet porn king Marcus Caughman; from the lowly Mexican cleaning woman, Maria, to the giant of the global construction industry and last leader of a powerful family dynasty, Samuel McAndrews; and more . . . they frantically fan the flames and attempt to extract what they can from the ensuing whirlwind. Gangbangers, environmentalists, clerics, accountants, activists, bureaucrats, socialites, lobbyists, and others join them all in a swirling, chaotic, fin de siècle, ka boom! When the dust settles, the result is there for any eye who wishes to behold. Together they have built the next layer of mankind’s progress: A TERRACE ON THE TOWER OF BABEL.

Set in the San Francisco Bay Area, with related scenes in New York, London, Washington D.C., Riyadh, and Ibiza, A TERRACE ON THE TOWER OF BABEL is a fast-moving, fascinating and boldly rollicking tale of epic proportions full of romance, intrigue, philosophy, history, science, religion, humor, thrills, triumph and defeat. It is stark in its reality – frightening at times, comforting at others, rife with controversy yet mortared with sympathetic accord. Delve deep into its provocative and compelling depths or float along at the surface and enjoy it in either case – this is a story you’ll never forget!

Love’s Thrilling Dimensions

Tags Requested:

love poetry, spirituality, self-development

Description

Perhaps poetry is the highest written form of love. In Love’s Thrilling Dimensions, Joyce Akesson proves this point. With care and tenderness, this Swedish writer doles out a collection of poetry that is thoughtful and thought provoking, with a voice that is full of spirit and pleasant rhythm.

At a fundamental level, the collection explores the many dimensions of love and what it is to be human. Akesson travels through hopes and fears in the face of love, yet she also delves into existential questions that many readers will appreciate. She easily flows between asking, “Are we playing at something/or are we doing it for real?” and more figurative concepts like that of Chaos who “sometimes glares at the world/while smoking his cigar.” There are many moments like these that grant depth to her work beyond the surface features of love.

Speaking from personal experience, although I imagine many will agree, poetry about love definitely has its ideal moments to be consumed. After a break up I will probably reach for a dose of Rumi, or during a loving relationship I will feel motivated to pen a love poem for a partner. In the meantime, even though I am not one to necessarily gravitate to a collection about love, this book still has a relevant place on my current shelf. Despite being in a life phase in search of love, my romantic and tormented soul still appreciates stanzas like “Who would have known/that a kiss could quench my thirst/like this?” or

You are at the mercy of this consuming love, this heartless thief named passion, who with a joyless eye, unlocks your heart, penetrates your mind and devours your soul from the inside out. Ultimately Love’s Thrilling Dimensions is an enjoyable float through well-crafted phrases, appealing cadence, and expressive emotion. Akesson shares truths about life and love in a way that reflects modern life and is embraceable by modern audiences.

Description

A gold rush is a period of feverish migration of workers into the area of a dramatic discovery of commercial quantities of gold. Major gold rushes took place in the 19th century in Australia, Brazil, Canada, South Africa, and the United States, while smaller gold rushes took place elsewhere.

Gold rushes were typically marked by a general buoyant feeling of a “free for all” in income mobility, in which any single individual might become abundantly wealthy almost instantly.

The world of internet marketing is very similar to the gold rush. Very few dig on the right spot and find the gold mines. Many are making very little money, if any, in their believed gold fields.

During the gold rushes, a group of merchants were receiving handsome and constant flow of money. They were selling shovels and tools to those miners. As long as those miners believed there were gold in the mine, the money flew to the merchants continued.

Today, while everybody is rushing for gold in the internet, you can sell cyber shovels to them. You don’t need to compete with those internet gold miners in the congested internet market. You do not need to create the cyber shovels, either.

This manual reveals the buried secrets of marketing and selling. You just need to follow and push the existing market. You do not need to create anything new. Yet, your profit can easily outperform those leading the market.

Description

When a group of bloodthirsty radical Islamic terrorists target a nuclear waste processing facility in northwestern England and a Washington, D.C. airport for their next acts of violence, it’s up to CIA counterterrorist case officer Mitch Vasari to stop them. But Vasari’s work is complicated by terrorist mastermind Dr. Abdul-Karim bin Ahmad, a Pakistani physician working at a hospital in Scotland. Caught in the middle is Patrick Cahill, an Irish national and Dr. bin Ahmad’s accomplice, who also happens to be deep undercover for Vasari and the Agency. The players circle in a deadly dance of violence and deception as the clock ticks steadily toward a cataclysmic devastation.

“Succeeding in the war on terrorism is an enormously difficult task that is fraught with danger,” De Mello says. “With terrorists throwing down a gauntlet of unending prospects for acts of devastation and the loss of lives, only the most skillful and professional counterterrorist operations will serve to bring them to justice.”

When the terrorist group succeeds against their first target, in England, Varsari picks up the pieces of the operation and follows the cell to their next attack, this time in the U.S. With disillusionment growing, he questions his commitment to the Agency and what his future prospects are for continuing his oath of loyalty, dedication and secrecy.

Can love withstand a separation of forty years? This compelling account of innocence lost provides a moving answer. In a brief prologue, the reader learns that Jim Wade’s thirty-year marriage has dissolved because his wife blames him for being emotionally distant. He knows that she’s right; his heart belongs to a girl in a fairy tale. When a mysterious letter invites him to return to that magical environment, the memories come flooding back.

In their adventures, the buddies cross paths with Randy, a sailor with an abiding hatred of women; Chaplain and Mrs. Martin, Christians concealing profane secrets; Lieutenant Douglas, a black policeman who encounters prejudice at every turn; Esperanza, a maid both beautiful and street-smart; and the powerful Ávila family, whose social standing belies their estranged relations. The interweaving stories of these characters converge in a harrowing climax. Can Jim Wade find the girl who stopped his heart so long ago? Can paradise lost become paradise regained?

Jennifer Whitney was the last American virgin. At least that’s what she felt like in 1986 as she began her sophomore year at Central Illinois University. She was proud of her decision to wait for the right guy and yet she was getting restless. It seemed like everyone around her was doing the nasty and having fun doing it. How long was she going to have to wait? Perhaps it was time to stop relying on fate to guide her and instead take matters into her own hands. She didn’t want to become a campus slut or anything, but surely there was a difference between a trashy skank and a nice girl with a little experience.

Wielding a mallet and chisel, the man commits an unspeakable, but darkly comic crime before escaping with a bizarre trophy. Recently divorced, thirty-something Kathy King is hired by the museum to investigate the crime. Although her previous experience has involved insurance fraud, she jumps at the chance to establish herself in her new surroundings. She interrogates a series of outlandish suspects, including a “cracker” teenager, a movie-obsessed homeless man, an evangelical minister, and a gay basher.

Kathy’s parents live in Sarasota as well, recent retirees who are adjusting to Florida living. They struggle to contend with the exotic flora and fauna, the extremes in climate, the influx of snowbirds, the conservative politics, the dangerous mix of drivers, and the conflict between cultured Sarasota and blue-collar Bradenton. Two of their neighbors pull them unwillingly into a rapidly escalating turf war that parallels the initial stages of the war with Iraq.
Both plots intertwine in unpredictable ways, leading to laugh-out-loud confrontations and a surprise ending. It’s not just another day in paradise!

Positive Results: Making the Best Decisions When You’re at High Risk for Breast or Ovarian Cancer

Breast cancer, BRCA, genetics, ovarian cancer, women’s health

Description

This unique and important guidebook is a single, comprehensive source of information and advice to help women (and some men) at high risk for breast and for ovarian cancer because of family history and genetic profile. One part memoir, three parts ‘how to’ manual, this book explains in a clear and steady manner the myths and realities of ‘the breast cancer genes’. It lays out all the options in easy-to-follow, compassionate language. It will help women and men to decide if they want to pursue genetic testing, guide them in interpreting their test results, and give them a sound basis for making the life-saving decisions required to manage their risks. Authors Joi Morris and Dr Ora Karp Gordon cover all of the latest medical options, including genetic testing for breast cancer risk, breast cancer surveillance, assessing risk, mastectomy and breast reconstruction ovarian cancer surveillance, surgery, managing menopause, and cancer risks in men who carry mutations on BRCA genes. Along the way, Joi tells her personal story and that of other women and men who have made the gut-wrenching decisions required to survive in this world of astronomical risk. At the age of forty-two, Joi learned that she has a genetic mutation on a gene known as BRCA2. The test results meant that her risk of getting breast cancer could be as high as 84 percent by age seventy, and that her risk for ovarian cancer was also high. Compounding her risk was the fact that her mother had developed breast cancer in her forties. After much research and consultation, the result of which is this book, Joi made the difficult decision of undergoing prophylactic mastectomies. This straight-forward and practical approach combined with the poignant personal experience of a woman at risk facing these challenging decisions will provide readers with the feeling that they have had the benefit of a long conversation with both a trusted physician and a friend who has just gone through the same uncertainties they are facing.

The Path of Innocence

Contemporary romance, Romance, Women’s fiction

Description

‘The Path of Innocence’ is a contemporary romance which explores the challenges faced by Fiona and Roger, two young innocents from opposing backgrounds, as they journey towards adulthood along a turbulent path of self discovery, love and sexual awakening. We follow their struggles and witness the pain they suffer as a result of showing too much trust in those they perceive as friends, only to be betrayed.

Fiona is strong-willed and idealistic, a firm believer in true love and family values, but her naivety leads her into compromising situations which test the strength of her resolve, making it difficult for her to live up to her own standards

Roger, on the other hand, is emotionally scarred by an unhappy childhood and, more recently, the untimely loss of his mother. His encounters gouge ever deeper wounds which leave him disillusioned and erode his trust in others. It takes a huge leap of faith for him to let Fiona into his affections.

When they eventually meet and fall in love, it seems that they have finally found the happiness that has, so far, eluded them both. Yet, they are unaware of the powerful struggle Debbie, Fiona’s mother, has with her own conflicting desires and which threatens to bring their happiness crashing down.

Debbie’s journey is an important theme and the book explores her inner turmoil, wrestling with her contradictory emotions as she cares for her invalid husband whilst also nurturing a burning sexual desire.

The dramatic consequence of Fiona and Roger discovering her dark secret threatens to shatter their beliefs in everything, including their future together, and the question of whether their love can survive a cruel twist of fate hangs in the balance until the last page.

A Study of the Assimilation and Substitution in Arabic

Tags Requested:

foreign language, arabic language, arabic

Description

This work is a comprehensive study of two well-known phonological changes in Arabic: the assimilation and the substitution. The assimilation involves the incorporation of a certain segment into an adjacent one in such a manner that they both form a doubled segment. The segments can either be identical or different. This phenomenon occurs usually in the doubled verbs and their forms and in some cases of perfects of Form V, VI and VIII. It also occurs in some other more unusual cases as in two words following each other. The substitution involves the replacement of a segment for another different one. It occurs if there is in the word a combination of two segments which is deemed as heavy, or if both these segments’ points of articulation are close to each other or if they are akin in character. Other more unusual reasons relate to the peculiarity of a dialectal variant, to a verse’s metrical exigency or to the exigency of the pause. This book explores in detail many various cases in which these changes are possible, necessary or forbidden. The phonological elements, the theoretical discussions and the coverage of the different works from the 8th century until our days, offer a thorough and accessible study for both the students and researchers of Arabic.

And In 1865, to the north of the Himalaya, in a place called Kashgar, lives the real Yakub Beg: a man who will stop at nothing to achieve his worldly ambitions of riches and power – even if that involves doing a deal with the Jinn.

Sankofa

Tags Requested:

Description

The mythological African sankofa bird represents the concept that you cannot successfully move into the future if you do not pay attention to the past. This novel begins and ends in an airport to approximate the concept of moving into the future. Within this future frame, we move back and forth through time to see what brought the characters in the airport to this point in time.
Charles Ofay is introduced as a young college student who is more concerned with partying than maturing. He wouldn’t consider himself prejudiced or racist, but he isn’t trying to do anything to dispel the white middle class institutionally-racist values that he was raised with. As the consequence of a one night stand with a black woman from the college across town, it comes to his attention that he has a daughter he didn’t know existed. Compounding this realization is the fact that the baby’s mother dies shortly after childbirth.
After much soul searching, Charlie decides to step up and do the right thing. His daughter, aptly named Sankofa by her mother, is the catalyst for Charlie’s education on the dark side of racism and the bright side of racial pride. Through trips back and forth through time, he learns the lesson of the sankofa bird as well as things about his town, his housemates and himself that he would have otherwise never known. In the end Charlie’s bond to his daughter and new cultural awareness deepen to the point of changing his world. With the lessons of the past complete, he is able to move comfortable into the future.

The Losing Role

Tags Requested:

thriller, WWII, historical fiction

Description

Late in 1944 a failed German actor, Max Kaspar, is forced to join an absurdly desperate secret mission in which he must impersonate an enemy American officer. So Max cooks up his own fanatical plan — he’ll use his false identity to escape tyranny and war and flee to the America he’d once abandoned.

Max the performer is hardly a soldier let alone a double-crossing commando, yet in the deadly Battle of the Bulge he has to fool battle-shocked American GIs as well as dodge discovery by his reckless German comrades. Belgium’s Ardennes forest becomes a snowbound hell and the magical America he’d loved is lost to him, replaced by a somber invading juggernaut. In the end, Max’s gambles will lead him to a grim but honest payoff.

Part WWII espionage thriller, part expatriate noir, The Losing Role is based on an actual German false flag operation that’s been made infamous in legend but in reality was a doomed farce. In all the tragic details and with some dark humor, this is the story of an aspiring talent who got in over his head and tried to break free.

At the university Cali is a star student trying to finish her master’s thesis on California archaeology. What the other students and professors must not know is that by night she makes money giving massages with a happy ending to strangers. At first, she truly enjoys working at the apartment, since it brings out the sensual side she lacks as a student. She forms a close friendship with two of the girls and a few of her regular customers, but struggles with the fact that she is doing something illegal, dangerous, and looked down upon in American society.

Intimate Encounters (by Sierra Michaels) is a humorous and occasionally serious account of the inner workings of the sensual massage business and the unique and sometimes pathological characters that work at and visit the apartment, as well as Cali’s life and struggles as a graduate student in doubt about her chosen field and her future.

Description

Set in southern Spain in the First Century BC, Libertas introduces the people who live in the idyllic mountain community of Munda and the ancient Kemeletoi people who thrive in the surrounding countryside.

But the world is ruled by Rome, whose generals have a score to settle – Julius Caesar has force-marched eight crack legions from Italy to subdue the sons of Pompey, and two huge armies will clash in the wide upland valley that stretches before Munda. The final, savage battle of a remorseless struggle for world dominance. A battle that will leave 30,000 dead and a community devastated.

But there’s an unlikely hero who refuses to give in to the despair and horror of war, who believes his family can be rescued from slavery, who refuses to accept that Roman cruelty and greed has changed his beloved Munda for ever.

It’s a story of bravery, love, invention and hope.

“Alistair Forrest’s Libertas is a fast-moving tale of fortitude, survival and eventual retribution told against the background of Rome’s bloody civil war. Forrest vividly recreates the epic battle that gave Caesar the prize he sought so avidly.” – Douglas Jackson, author of Caligula

“Forrest has the gift of the true story teller – the ability to engage his readers’ interest from the very first sentence.” – Sir Patrick Cormack FSA, MP

Description

In the northern Arabian Peninsula during the second half of the 7th century, Qays, later known as Majnun, is in love with his cousin Leyla and decides to praise her in his love poems. Annoyed by all the noise around her, Leyla’s parents consider that he has compromised her honor and force her to marry another man. Qays becomes desperate and wanders alone in the desert. His father takes him to Mecca and begs him to seek God’s help to free him from his passion, but in vain.
The story of Majnun and Leyla has been told in legends, songs, poems, plays and epics from the Caucasus to Africa and from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. It is a story of a tragic and endless love, much like the later story of “Tristan and Isolde” and “Romeo and Julia” in Europe.
This volume consists of a translation into English of several of Majnün’s poems to Leyla together with comments and an introduction. An incurable romanticism, the deepest longing of the heart to its beloved, nostalgia, memories of a lost paradise, idealism, anticipation, joy after a reunion, bitterness after a separation, lovesickness and a consuming passion emerge from the versions that have inspired countless of people more that 1200 years ago and throughout the centuries.

memoir, mothers, poverty

Description

When you eat soup every night, thoughts of bread get you through.” Ghostbread makes real for us the shifting homes and unending hunger that shape the life of a girl growing up in poverty during the 1970s.

One of seven children brought up by a single mother, Sonja Livingston was raised in areas of western New York that remain relatively hidden from the rest of America. From an old farming town to an Indian reservation to a dead-end urban neighborhood, Livingston and her siblings follow their nonconformist mother from one ramshackle house to another on the perpetual search for something better.

Along the way, the young Sonja observes the harsh realities her family encounters, as well as small moments of transcendent beauty that somehow keep them going. While struggling to make sense of her world, Livingston perceives the stresses and patterns that keep children–girls in particular–trapped in the cycle of poverty.

Larger cultural experiences such as her love for Wonder Woman and Nancy Drew and her experiences with the Girl Scouts and Roman Catholicism inform this lyrical memoir. Livingston firmly eschews sentimentality, offering instead a meditation on what it means to hunger and showing that poverty can strengthen the spirit just as surely as it can grind it down.

Memoir, spiritual, addiction

Description

When you think of a crack-head, what kind of picture comes to mind? A stupid teenager, with little, or no education? A prostitute? A smack-talking, ghetto-born African-American? Or, maybe, a misfit Caucasion dropout, from a broken home, with an alcoholic, abusive, absentee father? Crack-heads are street-walking, panhandling, hustling, poorly dressed, teeth missing, gaunt, thin, useless, and dangerous looking kinds of people, that you’d never invite over to dinner, right?

Well, guess again, because the author of these memoirs is an educated, articulate and thoughtful, formerly successful family and businessman, a grandfather, who owns expensive suits, always knows how to appear well groomed, and knows which fork is used when, at the gourmet banquets of the upper middle class. “I Romanced the Stone” observes, discusses, and exposes fundamental tendencies of addiction in our society, and weaves these general themes throughout the personal story of the author’s journey. The reader comes to understand that drug addiction is not some exclusive disease of the poor, or the uneducated, or the social castaways of our world; it is an insatiable and insidious ghost, shadowing anyone, of any walk of life, from any economic or social environment. It can appear as a false god, “the good life”, and then devour you as “the grim reaper” is revealed bewilderingly to you, as your new slave master. The book tells how the author was rehabilitated, cured, and had his life and soul spared, through love and help from family, and most significantly, through a powerful spiritual experience. It is an inspiring, yet fearsomely awesome story, sending a message of hope, and advisement.

Description

Isn’t reality just our minds convincing us to accept life and our surroundings as factual?

What if I told you that virtual-world technology has evolved beyond our wildest dreams and we’re actually living virtual lives right now? We’re here learning a mandatory history lesson that everyone must learn in the future before ever being truly conscious. While our bodies are in the future, our minds are here in the past, Learning Earth’s Deathly History. It’s a time during the early 21st century when the world is divided by ideological hatred. This ravenous hatred will soon climax when the DOOMS-TEAM strikes America with a sinister act of terror that will snowball overnight into nuclear Armageddon.

“Journey with me into the future; let me lead you through the pages on the greatest adventure of all time, inspired by a true epiphany I suffered during a moment of sleep. It’s a story of our time in Earth’s history. Right now humanity has reached a fork in the road; one road leads to life, the other to death. In this book, the first of a trilogy, you’ll learn what’s on the road to death and a little of what’s possible on the road of life. Only by showing the world the cataclysmic cost of a world divided can it appreciate the wonders of life and the endless possibilities of a world united.”

Description

In her independent efforts to catch child killers, Emily Stone discovers the evidence that the cops can’t — or won’t — uncover. Now, this covert investigator is back on the hunt for the world’s most sick and twisted murderers. But even with help from ex-police detective Rick Lopez, this time she’s facing her most dangerous opponent yet.

The headlines in the San Jose Mercury News blare updates on a serial killer who seems able to slaughter with impunity. Men, women — it doesn’t matter; the victims serve only to satisfy a perverted need to kill. The killer watches the moment of death on multiple computer screens, over and over again. The only connection is that they’re all devotees of the latest video-game craze — a sophisticated brain-puzzler called EagleEye.

When the killer goes after Lopez’s law-enforcement mentor, Lopez and Stone decide to give the cops a little extra, unsolicited help. What follows takes them deep inside a shocking high-tech world, a kind of social-networking community for serial killers. But when they start getting too close to the truth, all hell’s going to break loose.

Now, Stone and Lopez become the killer’s next target as Stone must make a difficult decision to leave the ones she loves in an all-or-nothing effort for survival. Can they stay alive long enough to blow the whistle on this unlikely perpetrator?

Description

Jack Scanlon, at the threshold of his sixtieth year, finds himself in an uncomfortable recliner in the corridor of Day Surgery at a local hospital, hooked up to an IV tube. He is receiving three units of blood, a process that will take the better part of eight hours. He has all but convinced himself that he is a terminal case, a victim of colon cancer. If a drowning man is capable of witnessing the sum of his entire life before his eyes at the instant before he goes under for the last time, Jack Scanlon has the luxury of witnessing his at his leisure, and in chronological order—his choice. His meditations focus largely on his early childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood, which covers roughly the years 1944 through 1961, with a few brief detours into more recent history, a history that involves the deaths of his younger half-brother Keith, and his mother, as well as a short description of his own recent medical struggles.

In 1972, they fell in love at first sight. He was a college football star — good-looking, smart, fun — a sweet Southern boy. She was sweet sixteen — pretty, artless, chaste — a good girl. A year later, Troy Stevenson and Patty Ayers were married. But in 1983, in moss-hung Verona, Georgia, as they plan to celebrate their tenth anniversary, the tender and tenacious love between this hardworking man and his adoring wife is tested by sudden adversity.

Now a corporate executive, Troy must confront an old family secret that underlies his nascent alcohol abuse or he may lose his wife and the son and daughter he deeply loves. When his latent destructiveness is unleashed and impacts his family, he moves to their lakeside cottage to come to grips with his personal weaknesses.

But busybodies at his company assume he left home because his marriage is in trouble. Encouraged by the assumption, co-worker Brooke Emerson, an amoral, 1980s material girl romantically obsessed with Troy, attempts to seduce him, setting in motion a chain of events with harrowing consequences for him and his family.

Description

Just as you see more of Nature when you are quiet—you discover more of your own sexual-emotional depths when you become more still. In Slow Love: A Polynesian Pillow Book, you will discover a more pacific, unifying approach to passion. James N. Powell’s writings on Polynesian lovemaking have been warmly embraced in Japan, where they sparked the “Polynesian sex” vogue. Inspired by Powell’s writings, Hiroyuki Itsuki, Japan’s über author and Buddhist thinker, penned two volumes on South Seas sensuality. Also, Kunio Kitamura, Head of Japan’s Family Planning Association, enthusiastically promotes Powell’s thoughts on Polynesian-style passion as a way for couples to deepen sexual sensitivity and fulfillment. He writes: “Polynesian sex…involves taking a long time…and…allows energy in the form of weak electromagnetic waves—similar to the concept of ki—to flow, building up to create large waves that encompass the entire body and bring enormous pleasure and happiness.”

An adorable, completely original YA voice.

Lotus Lowenstein’s life is merde. She dreams of moving to Paris and becoming an existentialist. Yet here she is trapped in Park Slope, Brooklyn, with a New-Agey mom, an out-of-work dad, and a chess champion brother who dreams of being a rock star. Merci à Dieu for Lotus’s best friend, Joni, who loves French culture enough to cofound their high school’s first French Club with Lotus. At the first meeting, the cutest boy in the world walks in. His name is Sean, and he too loves French culture and worships Jean-Paul Sartre.

At first, Lotus thinks Sean is the best thing to happen to her in years. He’s smart, cultured, and adorable. Unfortunately, though, Joni feels the same way. And having an existentialist view of love, Sean sees nothing wrong with enjoying both girls’ affections. Things come to a head when all three depart for Montreal with their teacher, Ms. G, on the French Club’s first official field trip. Will Sean choose Joni over Lotus? And will Lotus and Joni’s friendship ever recover?

Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes 2009, Sherlock Holmes Movie

Description

The story is narrated by Holmes’ friend and biographer, Dr. Watson. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle said that the character of Holmes was inspired by Dr. Joseph Bell, for whom Doyle had worked as a clerk at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. Like Holmes, Bell was noted for drawing large conclusions from the smallest observations.

In the 2009 movie Sherlock Holmes, based on a story by Lionel Wigram and images by John Watkiss, directed by Guy Ritchie, the role of Holmes is performed by Robert Downey Jr. with Jude Law portraying Watson. It is a reinterpretation which heavily focuses on Holmes’ more anti-social eccentricities guiding his brilliant analytical mind and his martial abilities.

Description

First there was darkness…
A young woman wakes up to find herself in the dark. She does not know how she got there; she does not know why she is there. She feels for a light switch, thinking the light heals all pain.

Then there was light…
Death is only an instant. What light reveals to her is way past death itself. Realization sets in, and it is made clear that escape is out of the question. For a puzzling madman holds her captive, her freedom at the palm of his hand.

Now there is only a decision…
He will kill her only if she exhibits signs of a certain syndrome, and as of now there are only two different ways of ending this madman’s reign: Kill him or stay alive.

Staying alive requires tolerance to pain and despair. It asks of her a precise resistance to a syndrome—one she knows nothing about. If she doesn’t die, no one else has to.

Killing him vanquishes all hopes of freedom, for the key will die with him. Killing him will make her the one monster she swore she would never be: The same beast responsible for building a definite barrier on the line that divides her past from present to possible future—one who has silenced her past forever.

Description

Moonlit Tours is the story of three metropolitan cab drivers with diverse backgrounds that pool their resources to create a get-rich-quick scheme of questionable legality. Their enterprise, Moonlit Tours, offers deluxe, safari-like excursions into the city’s soft underbelly where decadence, moral oblivion, and depravity are close enough for their jaded, affluent patrons to witness in vivid detail.
Despite careful planning, however, the three are unable to insulate their clients from this spectacle of sin. By providing a bridge between cultural poles the naïve trio inadvertently sets a catastrophic equation into motion.
Densely populated with quirky characters from all walks of life, rich with dark comedy, and fueled by a crime story reaching out in all directions like a spider web, this social satire is a tale of incremental evil; a thoughtless, lazy fall from grace, and the terrible price of redemption.

Humanity’s position of political and technological dominance within the galaxy is suddenly shattered when a sleek alien vessel arrives unexpectedly at Earth. Admiral Daniel Atgard and the crew of the Apocalypse embark on a mission to find these enigmatic aliens, but the focus of the mission quickly turns from finding answers to exacting revenge. Meanwhile, a belligerent species of reptilian warriors, seeking to avenge a previous defeat at the hands of the human-controlled United Confederation of Planets, takes this opportunity to plan an all-out assault on Earth. Faced with overwhelming odds and the terrible knowledge of mankind’s most horrifying secret, Daniel must choose between honor … and humanity’s very survival.

derrida, deconstruction, philosophy

Description

Derrida is one of those annoying geniuses you can take a class on, read half-a-dozen books by and still have no idea what he’s talking about. Derrida’s ‘writing’ is definitely confusing (it’s like he’s pulling the rug out from under the rug that he pulled out from under philosophy). But beneath the confusion, like the heartbeat of a bird in your hand, you can feel Derrida’s electric genius. It draws you to it; you want to understand it…but it’s so confusing. Jim Powell’s Derrida For Beginners is the clearest explanation of Derrida and deconstruction presently available in our solar system. Powell guides us through blindingly obscure texts like Grammatology (Derrida’s deconstruction of Saussure, Lévi Strauss, Roussseau), “Différance” (his essay on language and life), Dissemination (his dismantling of Plato, his rap on Mallarmé), along with his other masterpieces.

derrida, deconstruction, philosophy

Description

Deconstruction is so labyrinthine that it has become the monster that murdered philosophy. When Jacques Derrida, the father of deconstruction, uses buzzwords such as “phallogocentrism” and “transcendental signified,” humanities students and aspiring philosophers may get weak in the knees.
Following the success of his For Beginners title Derrida, Jim Powell’s Deconstruction is an irreverent romp through deconstructive domains. Though Powell offers lucid explanations of the most important deconstructive ideas and texts, he also dives into lesser-known works. One of these, The Right to Look, finds Derrida offering his thoughts on a photo-novella consisting of images of women making love with each other. Powell then goes on to explore how deconstruction has escaped Derrida, especially in the realm of architecture. Then, based on Derrida’s assertion that deconstruction happens differently in different cultures, Powell examines how – through Buddhism and Taoism – deconstruction took place in ancient India, Japan, and China.

Description:

If you are like most people, you’re not sure what Postmodernism is. And if this were like most books on the subject, it probably wouldn’t tell you. Besides what a few grumpy critics claim, Postmodernism is not a bunch of meaningless intellectual mind games. On the contrary, it is a reaction to the most profound spiritual and philosophical crises of our time–the failure of the Enlightenment. Jim Powell takes the position that Postmodernism is a series of “maps” that help people find their way through a changing world. Postmodernism For Beginners features the thoughts of Foucault on power and knowledge, Jameson on mapping the postmodern, Baudrillard on the media, Harvey on time-space compression, Derrida on deconstruction and Deleuze and Guattari on rhizomes. The book also discusses postmodern artifacts such as Madonna, cyberpunk sci-fi, Buddhist ecology and teledildonics.

Whether tackling Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu, Dogen, the Dalai Lama or Patanjal–Powell’s insights are deeply illuminating.

self-help, inspirational, success

Description:

This is a self improvement, motivational and personal development book that is designed to be read on a daily basis. One page a day for one year. Each page starts with an inspirational quote, followed by a discussion of that day’s topic, and ends with a task or an assignment for the reader to follow.

Achieve Anything in Just One Year equips readers with the tools to:

Be truly committed. Don’t just go through the motions – act like you’re making a promise to your company, or to your best friend.

Be specific. A resolution like “I want to lose weight” is easier to ignore than “I want to lose five pounds by March.”

Set a deadline. A timeframe equals commitment and helps quantify success.

Avoid overwhelming yourself. You may want to lose weight, quit smoking, achieve moderation with martinis and cut up your credit cards all at once, but let’s get real. Focus on a limited set of goals and plan on taking stock mid-year.

Change one thing at a time. Recognize that change is hard. Wait to achieve one goal before starting on the next.

Be realistic. Taking charge of a fitness regimen is a realistic goal, while exercising seven days a week may not be. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment with lofty goals.

The idea is to take daily action that creates a ripple effect in your life.

By transforming your life with small steps, you can stay motivated, focused and balanced. Best of all, you will feel happier about pursuing your personal success.

Discovering the fouth dimension, third eye and higher awareness through love and sexuality becomes a possibility of every human being.

As the feelings of two main characters grow for each other, Celestial Man takes Quantum Woman to the parallel universes in near future, deep past in Tibet and then into the deep future where she learns the languages, magic, and science of the future. She visits the frozen town Shambala deeply lost in the peoples memories.

The road is painful and difficult but full of challenges and those who believe and disbelieve in the new horizons. The spectacular goal is the lost harmony between male and female on the earth and discovering it with knowledge and love. You will be mesmerized, spell-bound as Quantum Woman seeks to become a partner of Celestial Man and gain her immortality.

Description:

At the dawn of Camelot, one young girl is about to take her place beside the greatest king in England’s history….

She is a mere child of twelve. But in these medieval days, this is the age when childish things must be put away and greater responsibilities accepted—all in preparation for a betrothal of marriage.

For young Lady Guinevere, on the advent of her thirteenth Birth Day, the whole idea is quite unbearable. After all, what could be better than spending her youth playing with her best friend Cedwyn, roaming the grounds around the castle looking for mythical creatures or hunting rabbits?

However, the wizard Merlyn—her teacher and friend—knows that destiny has a way of catching up with a person. His arrival sets in motion a series of events that will lead Guinevere to her destiny whether she is ready for it or not.

Tense and focused, the drama plays out over the space of just one night and day: three characters locked in battle with themselves, struggling to make sense of their situations, of the choices placed before them. What should be done? What is best? What is acceptable? Why? ….Why not?”

Description:

This book investigates the class of the strong verb by presenting and analyzing its morphological forms. The verbal forms are the perfect, imperfect, imperative and energetic verbs and the nominal ones are the infinitive noun, active and passive participles and the nouns of time, place and instrument. It also provides a survey of the theoretical structures by covering different topics that have been taken up in the most representative works of the Classical period from the 8th century until our days, such as the root, the additional segments, the question of the origin of the forms’ derivation and the undeclinability of the perfect and imperative and the declinablility of the imperfect and noun. The linguistic elements and the coverage of the different works offer a rich and complex picture of the Arabic language and make it accessible to both students and researchers of Arabic.

Description

Advantage Disadvantage is a nail-biting, behind-the-scenes pass into the world of high school sports and the people who make and break it. Set in Chicago, its innately urban backdrop is full of distinctly Windy City landmarks. This is the perfect read for sports fans that love an insider’s view…an insightful and deliciously-sinful plot full of twists and turns. You’ll find the perfect blend of bravery, betrayal and who-done-it adventure in this vividly penned thriller.
A neighborhood bookie peddles athletes to college coaches and develops a sport betting operation centered on high school games. He recruits an accomplice to execute his last bet, one that could set them up financially for life but is fraught with danger. The Chicago Police investigate the greedy gamblers who might try to manipulate a high school basketball playoff game. A chance meeting between the father of a mediocre student-athlete and the bookie puts in motion a sequence of events transforming the player into a Division 1 prospect using unorthodox basketball training methods. Corrupt adults, who selfishly engage in risky and exploitive behaviors, surround the athlete: gangland profiteers, win-at-all-cost coaches, greedy street agents, shoe company representatives, college recruiters, disloyal lovers, and others. Advantage Disadvantage examines the motivations that drive the surrounding adults to corruption, betrayal, and greed.

Description

In a humorous, futuristic “take” on the Greek legend of Persephone’s abduction by the dark god of the Underworld, a god-Emperor from another galaxy visits Earth to abduct the mate of his dreams.

Checkmate
The truth could wait. She had given him an idea…

Sex was a serious matter, a grim pleasure, or so he’d always thought. It had never been an occasion for laughter or irreverent conversation—until Djinni accused him of fishy mating habits, and since then he hadn’t taken sex seriously at all.
Lovemaking had never been such fun. Much as he’d longed for her to know and accept the truth about him, he didn’t want this blissful intimacy to end.
The truth could wait. She had given him an idea. A very wicked idea. A perfect excuse for the remaining rut-raged days and nights of debauchery and deception to come.
“I want to do it all,” he breathed. “I want to make love to you according to the ways of every sexually reproducing species in all the Communicating Worlds. Every one. From frogs to Great Djinn. After that, we’ll work up to thrusting Tantric sex.”
“Oh, Stars,” she gasped.
“And I take that as informed consent.”

Description

Knight’s Fork is a futuristic romance which combines a traditional quest story (loosely based on the Greek hero Perseus) with a romance around the issue of genetics and the royal need to breed.

A Princess from a “superior” race was married to an alien Prince as living proof of a political alliance. At the time of the marriage/peace treaty no one thought that the Prince would become King of his people, and that an heir would be necessary. After many fruitless years, the Queen (as she now is) realizes that her only hope of keeping the peace is to find a sperm donor from her own race who has the same eye color as her alien mate’s, whom she can trust, and who is not too closely related to her.

When he says “No!” the stakes are too high for her to give up.

Poetry, Contemporary Poetry, Literature

Description

Each of David Moolten’s poems creates a finely observed human story, a story told with deep empathy and compassion, and often with a palpable sense of gratitude. Whether he writes of his Jewish grandfather’s response to Wagner’s music, or “The Girl Without Hands,” or a Native American activist who “drank herself out / of a smashed marriage,” Moolten transforms our world by evoking theirs. He approaches human suffering and injustice with steadiness and tenderness, a clinical eye and a passionate heart. I came away from reading Primitive Mood with the feeling expressed at the end of the poem “Klezmer”: “Even now I’m greedy to hear more.”

—Jack Coulehan, MD, author of Medicine Stone

The poems on the page are powerful and substantial, extremely elegant in appearance. The poet’s view is exact, casting hope on so much immediate darkness of the world. Again, the poet is a capable one, luring the reader in with a revelry of lush detail and memorable images. There is a strong preoccupation here on behalf of the damaged, the displaced, the hurt . . . and it works on the reader’s psyche, rendering many of these poems quite memorable. Hauntingly beautiful, this collection is just the right potent mixture of reality and modern-day fable. I am thrilled that such poetry exists and it is being written by such capable hands.

—Virgil Suárez, 2009 T. S. Eliot Prize Judge

Taking the dark landscape of our human history as background, David Moolten, in his powerful and finely wrought collection, explores the primitive urges that set us against each other, and the cultural heritage—fairy tales, oral histories, legends, narratives—that seems a testament to the cruelties we are capable of. If our “primitive mood” in life is grief, it comes from our all too ruthless acquaintance with wreckage and violence, sometimes through large apocalypses, other times through personal devastations. And any salvation for us lies in our notions of tolerance and restraint, and perhaps in our abiding belief in an indefinable spirit that “bears us / Up and onwards in spite of ourselves.” These are unflinching, brooding poems of great scope and understanding.

—Gregory Djanikian, author of So I Will Till the Ground

I do NOT slay vampires, battle demons, fight zombies or vanquish evil spirits. In fact, you know what? Let’s just strike a line through the whole supernatural genre and call it a big no-no for me, okay?

Steven Raines (you know, the man who made billions making an operating system that out-Microsoft-ed Microsoft?) hired me to look for his missing daughter. Although, he’s pretty sure she’s dead. But, hey, guy’s offering me a million dollar payday, so I’m not going to argue.

I’m also going to ignore the thing about her being a Satanist, the dead bodies that are piling up around me, and vampires that I find myself in the middle of. And that big thing named Pookie, I’m going to ignore that, too.

Yep. I’m just going to ignore it all. For one million dollars I can totally do that.

Now all I have to do is stay alive long enough to spend the money.

Description

Brett R.Williams, “Mr. Marriage” is a Marriage and Family Therapist, and the author of You Can Be Right Or You Can Be Married. Brett believes there is only one fight, one conflict, one issue, which couples get locked into: who’s right and who’s wrong. When you analyze any disagreement, what you find is that the topic is always the same. The variables that get a couple going are endless, from not picking up his/her socks to the frequency of sex. However, as the disagreement progresses, the topic invariably shifts to who is the good guy and/or who is the bad guy. What is interesting about these “Right Fights” is that they are not about needing to be right, but come from the feeling of being wronged, hurt, or unloved. Couples want to right the wrong they feel, and then get mired in their battles over blame. The solution is to address the feeling of being hurt or unloved, by connecting as a couple. Our wounds cause us to withdraw, and that is why communication fails. By remaining close, two people are able to discuss their differences, express their pain, and feel more intimate afterw0rds.

shockwave, earthquake, bombs

Description

He had just begun to walk away from the area of the crash when the earthquake that rocked that region that night began to rumble through the ground. By the light of the quarter moon he watched in shocked awe as the surface of the earth undulated and rippled like the surface of the sea. He saw trees crashing to the ground not far from him and twice he was thrown to the ground himself.

When the earth stopped shaking, Tim got back on his feet and stared about him at the damage. Like many soldiers who trained extensively for night operations Tim had superb night vision. As he stood surveying the carnage wrought by the earthquake he wished for the first time in his life that he didn’t have such excellent night vision.

Having grown up in the Tennessee Valley, Tim was accustomed to surveying storm damage from the many violent thunderstorms and tornadoes that plague that region of the United States. But the damage he surveyed that night dwarfed everything in his experience. Shaking his head in awe he began the task of walking to the nearest city where he would hopefully find food, water, and transportation.

As he walked he was expecting the bombs to fall at any minute. In fact he wasn’t sure that it hadn’t been a bomb that had caused the earth to shake so violently during the earthquake. However he didn’t much believe that it had been a bomb for two reasons. There had been no flash of light in the night sky and there had been no shockwave. He felt reasonably sure that if he could feel the shockwave through the earth he would have experienced the atmospheric shockwave as well. “Unless the bombs detonated below the surface,” he told himself.

Walking all night long he never saw a soul. Dawn found him on the outskirts of a small community which had been evacuated due to some of the natural disasters that had occurred two weeks prior to his arrival. He acquired some food and water there. More importantly he acquired a motorcycle. He also found another few boxes of nine millimeter ammunition which he gratefully added to his meager supply.

Peacekeepers, Alamo, killer

Description

The people of the small farm community of Arley Tennessee are attacked by a well organized group of Marauders who plan to return in a few days and annihilate the men and take the women captive as sex slaves. But the sophisticated radio equipment aboard the Peacekeeper intercepts a message detailing the plot. The men and women of the newly christened Peacekeeper face their first real test.

A routine call causes a six man team to be dispatched to deal with a rogue bully who is tormenting the residents of Jewel Mississippi. But when the team arrives they find no ordinary bully. As a sniper picks off their members one by one, in desperation an emergency call is made to the Peacekeeper base. Pete Damroyal learns that an old nemesis is killing the Peacekeeper team.

In the aftermath of the devastation of the United States rumors abound. One rumor is enough to cause the Peacekeepers to journey to Jonesboro Louisiana. Something is killing the people of that community. Some of the locals want to help unravel the mystery deaths, however they are hindered by some of their fellow townsmen. The hostile townsmen want to keep a town secret from being revealed. Can the Peacekeepers unravel the mystery before another person succumbs to the fangs and claws of the mystery killer?

A thousand outlaw bikers are headed for the small town of Alamo Tennessee. They are bent on taking hostages to use as human shields as they push through Peacekeeper territory on their journey south. Can the Peacekeepers prevent the mass abduction of city residents or will history repeat itself? Will Alamo spell disaster for the Peacekeepers?

balance, change, enlightenment, happiness

Description

There is a place of balance, a place of peace and happiness in all things. ~The Middle Theory In The Middle Theory, an inspired book refined during nine eventful years, Deshon Fox reveals a powerful new philosophy based on the simple, but profound idea that balance is the guiding principle of all that supports life and progress. This philosophy, as rational as it is spiritual, affirms our common spiritual heritage, maps a straight path to enlightenment, and outlines practical approaches for fostering stable, meaningful relationships. Fox’s lucid writing, his penetrating insights into the nature of balance as a corrective agent in our lives, is both timely and inspiring. Optimistically, he asserts that we can transform ourselves and our world through mindfulness, prayer, and adherence to universal spiritual principles. The Middle Theory’s unique philosophy- reasoned and refreshingly sensible-empowers us to consistently choose the noble path that benefits us and others. The net result is not only personal happiness, but a life that contributes to the betterment of humanity. “The Middle Theory is one of the most extraordinary and most important books I’ve read in a long time. Basically a journey to discover the balance that we desperately crave in our personal lives as well as the balance that we desperately need on a global scale, this book deserves to be read over and over to fully appreciate the wisdom it holds….I will not forget this book anytime soon. Humankind cannot ignore its invaluable message any longer.” -Collen Meyers, Education Specialist, University of Minnesota “Inner balance can be yours! Written from the heart of a trained engineer, The Middle Theory invites you to tackle change, fear, and grief by using your own gifts of discernment, compassion and self-love.” -Kathleen O’Donovan, Ph.D., author of Super Woman’s Rite of Passage: From midlife to whole life

Perhaps if Joe and Vicky had known what relocating to a tiny village tucked in the Alpujarra mountains would really be like, they might have hesitated…

They have no idea of the culture shock in store. No idea they will become reluctant chicken farmers and own the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. No idea they will be befriended by an 85 year old spliff-smoking sex-kitten or rescued by a mule.

Life is never dull as they embark on their Five Year Plan.

At the end of five years they must decide. Will they stay or return to the relative sanity of England?

Vicky and Joe’s story is packed with irreverent humour, animals, eccentric characters and sunshine.

A truly hilarious page-turner.

Description

It’s been coming at us for 13.7 billion years.
In the beginning, it made everything possible.
In the end, it promises to do the same.

Something extraordinary is happening yet everything looks the same. Something fundamental is changing with the universe. On April 1, 2011, the world notices but doesn’t understand. Ex-professor Hamilton Ray discovers a wild, unfinished theory about a cosmic Probability Wave in lost notebooks. He studies in secret for fear of ridicule but abandons his research until the theory mysteriously resurfaces 20 years later on a website for the bizarre. Experts universally ridicule the theory, but Hamilton is driven to finish it. As the world rushes to all possible explanations for the periodic strange days impacting Earth, synchronicities place him under federal house arrest at Caltech where he backs into an already crowded spotlight. The implications, if true, are astounding. The peculiar PW2 theory might prove that consciousness is paired with probability the same way matter is with energy, and space with time. Our very humanity is the experiment. Hang on for the wild ride as the world “P-Pivots” towards a resolution of unimagined potential.

December 21, 2012 – 11:11 UTC.
The Mayan Calendar ends.
Something extraordinary begins.
The End of the Beginning.

Description

“The Guys Who Spied for China” is a roman a clef, exposing Chinese Espionage Networks during the eighties and nineties.

It is the quirky story of how two disparate men uncovered an elaborate spy operation that had functioned on American soil for nearly four decades. Through fate and serendipity, Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll, meets Johnny G Man, a vaunted scientist and the ultimate Cold Warrior.

What they helped unmask was a network of home grown spies in California and throughout the United States. As a result, newspapers ran relentless headlines depicting Chinese Espionage practices in the United States. The year 1985 was pronounced by the news media as “The Year of the Spy.”

“This is a new twist on the spy drama. While providing details of events that were often swept under the rug, this very personal and often darkly humorous tale captures what it feels like to be suddenly thrust into the shadowy world of espionage. You get to feel what it’s like to be there.

The Guys Who Spied for China is set largely in California, in the Santa Monica Mountain Range, just above Beverly Hills.

What’s remarkable is that most of this story is true.

Description

The headline in the small town newspaper read Young Woman Missing, Presumed Dead or Worse.

Leigh Lawson returned to Nags Head, North Carolina after four years with a huge shock. That big and bold headline was about her! Everyone thought she was dead!

The truth was that she was doing well. While gone, she had gotten clean from drugs and worked hard to get her bachelor’s degree in engineering. With her life back on track, she returns home in hope that she will receive a warm welcome. Instead, she gets the townsfolks’ disdain.

Everyone hates her, everyone except Jason Altarez, an ambitious and resilient reporter with his sights locked on Leigh. He chases her with oozing charm and romance, but does he really want her or is he after his next story?

Leigh’s life soon spirals out of control when the police recruit her for an undercover assignment. They want her to go back to the life of her troubled teenage years, back into the drugs, and help them to bring the local drug supplier to conviction. It may be Leigh’s only chance to redeem herself with her family and friends. If she can complete this one assignment, the town will forgive her. The only problem is that she needs to figure out how to stay alive in the process…

Jason is her continuous partner through it all, proving his dedication to her as he struggles to keep her safe. Leigh wants to believe he is a man of his word. She wants to believe that her heart isn’t completely foolish for falling for him, especially when she discovers evidence that Jason may be working for the very drug dealer that Leigh is trying to have arrested. Will he betray her in the end or will he demonstrate the most romantic notion of all – that love at first sight truly exists?

Description

Angelica Chappell’s story makes huge headlines. Only a few months ago, she released a new pharmaceutical drug called Krytonix that effectively slows the spread of cancer cells. She has no idea her story will attract the attention of a serial killer. Suddenly, she is a target whether she realizes it or not. This killer is interested in more than her life. He wants her reputation, too. His first mission is to sabotage Krytonix.

William Pierce worked undercover for the FBI for five years to bring down a ruthless mobster that he ultimately is forced to kill. Two months passes by since that assignment. Still, William saw things he couldn’t talk about. He did things he couldn’t talk about. He believes his soul is damned. Returning to “normal” everyday life isn’t an option. He isn’t the same man he used to be. He refuses to return to FBI headquarters. He becomes a rogue agent with an agenda.

These two characters literally collide when Pierce’s agenda leads him to Chappell. It will take both of them to keep Angelica alive and to figure out who is trying to kill her. William soon finds himself developing feelings for Angelica. Too bad for her killer, William worked as a trained killer for the mob. Will he find her killer and hand him over to the legal system to see that justice is served or will he search and destroy?

Army reservist Alex Swenson goes AWOL in 2004 to avoid Iraq duty. He’s fled to the Big Island of Hawaii, where he finds himself attracted to cute and wily Kanani, a crime-world survivor searching for a better life. Yet Alex’s old army buddy, Jerry, is hot on Alex’s trail.

A secretive island haven, Krieger Estates, was supposed to grant Alex a new life and identity, but soon Alex finds that the estates’ amoral founders thrive on absolute power, lockstep obedience, and unjust violence. Fleeing’s no option this time. Alex refuses to play along and it brings his new overseers’ full wrath. To save Alex, Kanani and Jerry join forces with a hard-nosed plan, yet it’s Alex who’ll find a way free without relying on Kanani’s doomed schemes, or Jerry’s tragic sense of loyalty, or any savage methods.

You must disclaim yourself from reason and whatever complacency you’ve retained in order to abscond the world for Edwards’ dominion of imprudent divulgence. A bizarre tale of a troubled childhood and the gamut of sexual disappointment. With a sour mixture of erotica and his own brand of grotesque humor, Edwards opens questions about the consensus of our thoughts on sex and relationships and follows through with a perverse finger pointed right back at you, forcing you to reminisce and re-examine your understanding of the opposite sex. The nameless protagonist will at once endear himself to you and piss you off as he explains how he carries forward the spoils of his tribulations in a succession of outrageous relationships…. and then pleads with you to extrapolate knowledge from your own.

Description

New Orleans, June 1997. The city’s dying of heat and dying on its feet as the port business shrinks and the powers that be carve up a vanishing pie. Steve Gorman, an executive for the APEX courier corporation, sees his colleague Andrew Sinclair disappear, carrying a high-value package containing a stone with miraculous powers…

Steve gets the blame, quits APEX and loses his place on the city’s Trade Council. Suddenly he’s a “non-person”, but with the aid of glamorous Creole journalist Monique Chauvin and fey historian Louis Duplantier, he unearths an astonishing conspiracy involving time travel, the Templars, Freemasonry and Voodoo. If this “Brotherhood” can forecast events like Hurricane Katrina, millions of dollars could be saved-for the elect few, of course.

C Q Scafidi’s murder story is in fact a stunning exposé of globalism, greed and ritualized gangsterism. His background in journalism and business at the World Trade Center give him a unique insight into the workings of mankind… and how human nature can be corrupted overnight by the allure of power. Read Time Couriers and you’ll see world events in an entirely different light.

Jenna’s aunt, Vanessa, a music agent, has just signed Aidan Price, a gifted and promising new performer who bears a striking resemblance to a young Johnny Depp. Aidan has come to Hollywood to compete on American Star, a very popular televised singing competition. Vanessa arranges for Jenna to meet Aidan at lunch, and their connection is instantaneous and electric.
From there they begin a sizzling courtship that leads them on a whirlwind journey through the demanding music business and media scrutiny that accompanies Aidan’s newfound fame. Despite all the intrusions which result inevitably from success in the entertainment world, Aidan and Jenna create a passionate and loving life together?a life, though, that is soon to become much more complicated than the “easy” life we so often assume comes with fame and fortune. As they are forced to deal with the pressures of international fame, a devastating illness, and an unspeakable traumatic event, Aidan and Jenna?s relationship and commitment to each other are tested in many unpredictable ways as they attempt to prevail over the seemingly insurmountable challenges that come with their own personal and intimate experience of stardom.

The sequel to Along Came a Demon.

My name is Tiff Banks and I talk to the ghosts of the violently slain. I’ve learned to live with that; in fact I’ve made a career out of it. My partner Royal Mortensen and I opened our own investigation agency, and I thought we made a good team. I felt secure in our personal relationship too, until our new clients turned up. Why did Royal take them on without consulting me, and why are they withholding information which could help solve their case? I don’t think they’re human, and Royal knows exactly what they are, but refuses to tell me. I think there’s a lot Royal isn’t telling me.

I discovered that while I looked into the disappearance of Gia Sabato’s lover, Royal investigated something far more sinister. Are the two cases connected? Does an authentic nineteenth-century journal have anything to do with either?

Lives are at risk, and so is my relationship with the one man I’ve come to trust. So I’ll do what I do best: pound the pavement and talk to dead people. The dead are always watching, they can do nothing else. They whisper to me.

Description

How do you teach young children about the value of patience and the loving omniscience of their Creator? Introduce them to The Little Pot, a wise and winsome tale. Soon after a potter lovingly forms a new pot and declares that he has important plans for his creation, the little pot begins to wonder what its purpose will be. Will it be used to hold important documents? Great riches? Beautiful flowers? As various expectations prove wrong, the little pot is cautioned to wait and see. Gradually, Little Pot comes to realize that its creator knows best and has the most wonderful of all uses planned for it. Young readers will realize that the same is true for them: that, like the little pot, they were designed to be vessels that bear fruit. Anyone who has ever had trouble seeing God working in his or her life will realize that, while His work may not always be evident, it is always there. The author’s warm illustrations beautifully enhance this charming allegory about patience and fulfillment. A valuable teaching tool for parents and educators, The Little Pot is a simple yet profound story about inevitable reversals. Its timeless message will be enjoyed by many generations to come.

Kitagawa Utamaro was the leading light of the popular Ukiyo-e school of woodblock print designers during its golden age, famous throughout Japan within his own lifetime, an immeasurable influence upon nineteenth century French artists, such as Vincent Van Gogh, Édouard Manet and Claude Monet, and is a continuing source of inspiration and admiration throughout the world today for his portraits of sumptuously garbed courtesans and sensitively drawn depictions of everyday life in eighteenth century Edo. This volume, the first catalogue to document all of Utamaro’s known print designs in the broadsheet format, provides a comprehensive descriptive listing of the artist’s works, along with more than a hundred and thirty reproductions of his prints, with accompanying indices to aid in the location of specific works by publisher’s mark, subject, or title. This groundbreaking publication, the product of more than two decades of exhaustive research, forms a record of the artist’s works that will serve as a lasting reference source for connoisseurs, curators, and dealers alike.

Description

Gunter O. Swoboda’s Mountains Of The Sea is a watershed voyage of epic proportions that takes you through the volatile moods
of an historic Hawaiian ocean culture.

Walter Beaumont comes face to face with political intrigue, war, and the most enigmatic experience for an English aristocrat—that of riding the giant swells of Hawai’i.

“Rarely does a historical novel capture the vernacular, imagery and excitement of an entire era like Gunter Swoboda’s Mountains Of The Sea. As a surfer, historian and working professional, Gunter has successfully synthesized his career, his chosen sport and his passion for adventure and writing into an engaging story of murder, intrigue, high-seas adventure, friendship and, ultimately, love. From its opening pages, Mountains Of The Sea ably transports the reader from the lofty realms of European aristocrats into the colorful, exotic and sometimes dangerous life of an intrepid foreigner in the Pacific Islands at the point of pre-colonial European contact. This is a novel that reads as both entertaining and educational. Extraordinary and masterful writing from a potent new voice in modern literature.”—Tom Kamaki Linker, B.ED., M.A

Description

Skookum Man is a romantic narrative set during fur trapping days. Jane, who is sometimes called ‘Matooski’ and her accidental boyfriend have a meetup in the rainforest. Jane knows how to take care of herself in the wilderness as she grew up as a free range child, raised by her Indian gradnfather. She is expert in Latin, botany, and elocution and pilots her own personal watercraft.
Robert is a recently arrived officer at a fictional fort by the Columbia River, a remote station with several peculiar luxuries by very few romantic options – especially for a man accustomed to being a slick player of sophisticated women of London. He is honored as ’skookum’ by the local friendly Indian clan even though he demonstrates again and again that he has no wilderness skill sets.
A Skookum reviewer comments that the story introduces “men and women from divergent worlds who meet in an Arden-lie forest. In those strange woods the reader is introducted to wood-wise ingenues, confused men, matronly women, clever animals, and assorted asses and fools. The introductions are lovingly conducted by a benign narrative presence….. This is a fairy tale with a modern edge..

Description

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are coming. And four Archangels find the perfect champions to save the world: fighters, warriors, soldiers, and brave men, all ready to fight for humanity against end times. All they have to do is drink a shooter — a caustic mix of alcohol and divinity that will imbue them with the conviction to battle the Four.

The only problem is these warriors don’t drink the shooters. Call it fate, chance, or what you will, but four women drink the divine concoction. Alexandra Carlton, Julia Wolfe, Emily Keller and Dinah Medrano must all take up the mantles of champions … whether they want to or not.

Four writers, four heroines, four Women of the Apocalypse. The world will never be the same again.

Bulimia, memoir, coming of age

Description

The Skinny begins with a small girl in a small town, but journeys far and wide as its central character (“Rowena Gay Wine,” say Ms. Joan, “is a brave young woman who learns from an early age how to alchemize danger and difficulty into opportunity, love, revolution, and apple pie.”) explores life, sex, love, business and politics with her razor sharp senses, endless curiosity, penetrating intuition, and biting wit.

The story tumbles headlong through one adventure after another until Rowena finds a moment of contemplation in a hospital room, where a kindly stranger (an angel?) encourages her to start spilling her guts instead of the contents of her stomach.

Never to be forgotten, Rowena’s magically moving story runs the gamut of human experience, from terror to tickling, from deep love to shallow sex, from “baby whispering” to an angelic intervention in an airplane disaster, and so much that’s in between, including – yes, that’s right -even a car chase! Rowena’s bulimia is primary to her, but not central to the story.

As a novel, The Skinny is a flat out great read. But many will want to think of it as a “bulimia book,” in which role it’s an accessible object lesson to every woman who has ever contemplated or practiced intentional purging. Although it never gets in the way of the story, the message is plain: bulimia is not just a health problem; it creates shackles of slavery every bit as powerful as any addiction out there.

“Actually,” says the author, “this novel is about making choices, and about the pain and pleasure we obtain from our choices.”

Description

Based on a true story, The Cure begins when Dr. Bernard Clouseau is about to receive Canada’s highest award for developing a surgical cure for breast cancer after years of research. The results are being published in the New England Journal of Medicine. After accepting the award, he is found brutally murdered. The next day, staffers discover the records containing the key to his work are missing. What they don’t know is that the notes for a secret, drug-based study that resulted in total remission have also disappeared.
Carol Anderson, former clinical trial examiner for the National Cancer Institute, is asked to suspend her work to developing community-based breast cancer programs to find his notes and determine their validity. She reluctantly teams up with Office of Research Integrity investigator Dr. Thomas Christian, her former medical school lover who has become a thorn in her side. Their challenge escalates when the editor of the Journal retracts his endorsement of Dr. Clouseau’s trial, rendering his life’s work worthless.
Together, they track down key members of Dr. Clouseau’s team across North America, not aware that they are being tracked by mercenaries in the employ of a powerful pharmaceutical company that learned of the second study. One by one, the people they meet are killed in a series of accidents. When Carol and Thomas discover Dr. Clouseau’s secret, their pursuers close in to eliminate them.
The Cure exposes the dark side of breast cancer research and the corporations that profit from a continuing stream of new drugs. While they race toward the secret, they discover there is more going on behind the “Quest for a Cure” campaigns than they could ever imagine, while struggling to stay one step ahead of the killers who will stop at nothing to keep the formula from the public.

Pimping Wall Street is the first book on trading psychology written for the average 20-30 something year old “player” who aspire to learn about and trade the financial markets successfully. This book doesn’t waste time with conjecture and conventional wisdom, but rather offers a raw and provocative, but clear and concise look at what it takes to become a top-notch trader based real world experiences of actual financial trading.

Furthermore, while there are many books on trading psychology that often use case study models and anecdotes that are often out of context and therefore have no optimum use in application, Pimping Wall Street meet these men where they are already at (relating with and dating women) and allow them to use their own experience in life (with women) to organically integrate the principles necessary to trade successfully. The result is the creation of a cohesive mindset that will position the budding trader to:

• Understand how the “Wall Street Game” works
• Understand one’s posture in the financial markets
• Cultivate a superior trading “inner game”
From this vantage point, an aspiring trader has a better chance of generating realistic trading ideas that can be converted into a realistic and winning trading plan.

Hope God knows I didn’t set out to be a liar. The first lie, the one Daddy knows about, was simple. It happened the day we moved from Minden to Pearl, Louisiana, when our landlady, Miss Clark, asked if it would just be Daddy and me living in her rent house. Before Daddy could take a breath, I answered yes, but Mama would be home soon. I then explained how Mama was taking care of her sick aunt, my Great-Aunt Margaret, out west. Daddy looked at me with his mouth open, but didn’t say anything. That was the day I became a liar.

And so begins A Truth Worth Tellin’, a novel filled with Southern charm, porch swings, sweet tea, and a family’s struggle with schizophrenia. In it, new author Toni Teepell shares a poignant tale about truth and the best sort of love that is unconditional and understood.

And know them as friends and not as a stranger.

Description

When a beloved local artist, known for her efforts to aid Hispanic immigrants is brutally murdered, Lila Morrison, newspaper reporter turned suburban housewife, finds her world turned upside down. After all, this is Scottsdale, Arizona-a desert oasis where tourists come to lie by the pool and soak up the sun. It’s not the type of place you’d expect to find murder. And what’s more shocking is the fact Lila’s best friend is pinpointed as the number one suspect. Determined to clear her pal, Lila dusts off her press pass and sets out to find the culprit.

Description

Lori Newman shares her experience of what is was like to find the strength to leave two abusive, narcissistic husbands. The years of court battles to try and retain the restraining order she had to have to feel safe and protected only to find out when she called the police for protection her restraining order was just a piece of paper.

Lori shares with us what is was like to always live in fear of what might happen to her and her children if she didn’t do as her ex-husband expected. From representing herself in a court room to finally finding an attorney to help her in her fight, Lori gives us a look into a court room that most of us hope to never see.

Her ability to remain free of her ex-husbands, stand up to their years of abuse and finally find her own inner strength to become the woman she hopes her children can be proud of is a testament to the power of a woman’s love for her daughters.

Description

Galen Morris is running for his life. He does not know his pursuer, or the nature of the thing that follows him relentlessly.
Before he can stop running, he has to understand his pursuer. In order to understand it he has to face it, but only in fleeting moments before he must run again. In his struggle to survive, he knows only one thing for sure – he must run, or die. The answers he desperately needs to survive will be found in a 200-year-old legend about a slave, also running for his life, who seeks justice for the murder of his wife. This justice will not come from a court of law to which slaves had no access, but from something very different indeed.
In a seemingly hopeless struggle to understand and overcome his pursuer, Galen embarks on a cross-country chase in search of help. What he finds are death, lies, and the love of his life.
Dark Justice tells two separate but related tales that come together in an exciting climax where justice is finally served – in a very dark and unusual way.

Description

Following a major fundraising event for the Butterfly Foundation, formed by Special Agents Ellie Conway and Mac Connelly, to offer sanctuary and support to the children of mentally ill parents, Ellie is sent to the first of many horrific crime scenes. Now a Supervising Special Agent, Ellie is confronted with identifying the connection between the victims. Events and puzzling clues which include bourbon, chlorine and gold ribbons, draw Ellie into a maze which includes a serial killer, Eastern European terrorists with military connections and conceivably, the Pentagon. Women are being murdered, children are missing and the trail is bizarre. After a phone call purporting to offer information, Ellie puts her life in jeopardy, walks into a trap and is assaulted and severely stabbed. With her psycho-prophetic talents, Ellie anticipates and protects future victims and deciphers the underlying reason for the murders. Bypassing her boss, Special Agent in Charge Caine Grafton, Ellie pulls in a favour from the highest level in order to close borders, airports, train stations in an attempt to trap Hudson Hawk, believed to be responsible for these and similar crimes in Europe. The denouement leaves Ellie facing a terrible reality and a grievous loss.

literary fiction, political fiction, satire

Description

Shaken Allegiances spans 48 hours in a world askew-almost absurd-just after a devastating earthquake has struck and isolated Montréal Island in the dead of an icy winter, one week before a referendum on Québec’s secession from Canada. No power, no communications, no access, and -40°F, but no heroes to the rescue; no Schwarzenegger, no Stallone, no Charlton Heston. Provincial and federal politicians are busy waging an ideological war, while coordination of emergency response is in the hands of a lunatic; a structural engineer and a disc jockey form an odd couple in their pursuit of fame, while the frustrated media seek ways of leapfrogging the collapsed bridges to undertake some disaster tourism of their own. Their fortuitous encounters, and problems with quirky opportunists, converge to help make things worse. Kafka would feel at home.

Shaken Allegiances jolts with a disturbing and witty projection of today’s unbridled narcissistic society, a disaster in full bloom that has sprung from the seeds of individualism planted in the 1980s. Its colorful characters, quixotic, ambitious, rapacious, self-righteous, naïve, conceited, moronic, lost, or otherwise flawed, provide a fresh, entertaining and cynical view of the inescapable human folly.

Michel Bruneau’s blend of deadpan humor and keen eye for the nonsensical side of human nature underlie his original perspective on contemporary existence. His previous book of fiction, “Inhumanité – Onze nouvelles qui insultent l’intelligence” (in French) has received excellent reviews, particularly from Radio Canada. In the technical realm, he has been an earthquake engineer for over 20 years, doing his share to reduce the risks of infrastructure collapse. As a professor and researcher, he has extensively published and has received many awards for his work. Born in Québec City, expatriated by the demands of work, he lives in Buffalo, enjoying its comparatively balmy winters.

Description

The Sorcerer’s Key is Clayton Bye’s first installment in the fantasy series FROM EARTH TO EDEN.

Morgan Heist, a dark sorcerer from the original Garden of Eden, has opened a door to Earth. He doesn’t care about the repercussions. The time has come to risk everything for The Sorcerer’s Key, a talisman with the power he needs to conquer both worlds.

Even though he has been forced to spend most of his life in hiding, no one could have predicted Jack Lightfoot’s reaction to Heist’s arrival on Earth. He decides to intervene in the twenty year fight between his father and the evil mage, drawing upon raw talent and the unbending courage of youth.

What results is a voyage of self-discovery that uncovers a secret originating with Adam and Eve, one that jeopardizes everything Jack holds dear, including the future of both Earth and Eden.

Jack Lightfoot is a complicated protagonist who is destined to face down one of literature’s most unexpected of villains. And, with a unique look at the mythology and ideology of our culture, Clayton Bye’s FROM EARTH TO EDEN creates an engaging, fantastical set of worlds which will capture readers on page one.

Description

The True Nanny Diaries, a novel which explores the paradox of being both the indispensable “help” and marginalized “illegal-immigrant,” revolves around Valdi West, who emigrated from the Caribbean to study at Columbia University.

By a quirk of fate Valdi ends up on the playgrounds of New York City babysitting to survive. Twenty years later, she can barely face her derailed dreams. Instead, she focuses her razor sharp intuition and cutting wit on her babysitting clique: Senior citizen Madam Lucian, who is supplementing her meager wages by selling bread from her Brooklyn apartment; Monica, who is stirring a few “perks” into her Green Card marriage and Ava, her one time confidant, whose impending success at the America Dream has Valdi unnerved.

Set further and further adrift from her own dream of becoming an award-winning writer, Valdi’s life becomes hopelessly entangled in the unending demands of her latest employers, a Manhattan couple with an errant son. Valdi’s chance encounter with her estranged, wildly successful, twin sister pushes her to the brink. She has two choices: sink or swim.

Description

Education, Edukation, Edukashun, is the most hilarious, entertaining and enlightening account of modern British education you are ever likely to read.

This fast paced story leads the reader along the litter strewn corridors of Gruffydd ap Cynan Comprehensive School, where Dave Falconer, a disillusioned and undervalued teacher battles with inadequate resources, disaffected pupils and colleagues crazy enough to be certified.

Written with verve and acerbic wit it relates the amusing consequences of teaching young, inexperienced and hormonally rampant teens the value of sex education, the devastating repercussions of a too liberal attitude to work experience and the disastrous consequences of holding an end of year prom in a luxurious hotel for one hundred and sixty excited and intoxicated teenagers.

Education, Edukation, Edukashun is simply not to be missed. It will have all who’ve experienced the stifling mediocrity of the state education system cheering to the last page.

Description

“The Guilt Gene, Diana Raab’s second book of poetry, has the straight-forward confessional tone that distinguishes her best work whether in prose or poetry. Eschewing high flying metaphor and dressed up formality, she confines her subject matter to her inner life and her journal-keeping voice and makes her poems through an emphasis on the line. Her poetry does not pretend to have figured things out; rather, this work is her process of figuring them out, of sorting her past and contemplating her present. The best of these poems derive their beauty from a disarming frankness and a heart that is open, willing to find a personal truth and say it.”

Not rebound, payback, loneliness, or even the great sex, and way beyond love. This is surrender.

In the beds of countless lovers, the immortal Luc Saint-Cyr has been mastered as well as master, commanded and commander. When his mortal lover leaves him, the distraught Luc withdraws and devotes himself to work. His entertainment company throws a ceremony for their most successful rock group, and Luc meets drummer Izzorah “Rah” Ceeow, one of the feline Kin race. Rah’s dark hair and velvety, golden furskin captivate Luc. Pert cat’s ears and a quick smile lighten his mood, and one look into Rah’s emerald eyes, deep and tranquil as a forest pool, and troubles cease.
He suspects the mid-twenties male is a virgin, and Luc, fascinated by Rah’s quiet serenity and lack of guile, longs for a deeper, closer relationship. Savoring Rah’s surrender will be as delicious as taking him. Luc will force nothing, no matter how deep his desire. Rah will give himself to Luc when he is ready to surrender his innocence, to capitulate every part of himself to Luc’s command. Rah will open himself and let himself be taken. Luc’s anticipation and desire are palpable; as real as his hunger for faithful, unconditional love. But to gain Rah, how much of himself is Luc willing to surrender?
This book is a 2010 EPIC Award Finalist in Erotic Science Fiction Romance

prophecy, 2012, climate

Description

Do you know what the prophets told us about the end of the world, or why they told us about it? They actually didn’t tell us about the “end of the world,” or even the “end of the world as we know it.” The world will change, just like they said it would, and those who know what to expect are going to be the ones who inherit a new generation of humanity. The prophets didn’t mention anything about a miraculous being that would save everyone who believed in miraculous beings. What they told us includes a leader of humanity, anointed by God. But he’s not going to whisk anyone away to the safety of Heaven during the destructive events. Instead, he’s going to suffer at the hands of humanity for being who he is, and then lead the way for those who want to survive.

Of course you knew that the world would be destroyed by fire. Everyone who was raised in a religious home knows that. But do you know what will cause that fire? Did you know that the prophets told us that pollution would be the cause? Can you think of any kind of pollutant that could cause the earth to burn? Could “global warming” be what the prophets were warning us about?

This book is about prophecy of the Old Testament. It includes the primary prophecies and how they are relevant today, even though they were written thousands of years ago and most are thought to have been fulfilled previously. Also included is the reasoning behind the birth of the religions we have today, and how they were predicted by the prophets. This book is not a religious book, because no particular religious beliefs are followed as many misunderstandings that that have been made by various religions of our world are untangled.

Description

“Outsmart the Unexpected” will help you to become a more quick thinking and creative problem solver. Each short, cliffhanger story in this collection unfolds a rather unusual (to make it more fun), no-time-to-lose predicament.
You’ll need to think outside-the-box in order to figure a way out.

These dilemmas will have you stretching your imagination and discovering the boundaries of what you’re capable of mentally, morally, and emotionally when faced with a situation you didn’t see coming. And because no challenge would be complete without a bit of sparse, misleading, or perplexing information, there’s some of that in the mix for you to wrap your ingenuity and deductive reasoning powers around as well.

Everyone has the capacity to think on their feet and be creative, but those mental muscles are often left untapped or undeveloped. Solving these edge-of-your-seat predicaments will build your problem solving muscles and confidence in handling any surprise that comes your way.

Jeff Davis Swain digs up evidence for a Raleigh, North Carolina, trial law firm. Like Raleigh, Swain is Southern with blue-collar roots but now finds himself more at home in an Audi convertible than a rusty pickup. When one of the firm’s clients comes home to find his McMansion burglarized — and his new wife’s dog dead in the kitchen — the man suspects his ex-wife. But Swain senses this is someone far more dangerous. From a stolen minivan, washed-up jazz bassist Leonard Noblac watches as Swain begins to investigate. He’s ready to perform his next crime to punish the zeros in the soulless suburb of Rocky Falls, and he’s happy to have Swain in his audience. Used to working from the shadow at the back of the stage, Leonard intends to put down a throbbing beat of crime and destruction in Rocky Falls — a jazz album of felonies, the performance he knows will finally make him famous. Jeff must find Leonard and stop him — but that will put those closest to Jeff in mortal danger.

Description

Sometimes life is tough. While Psalm 1 is a very brief passage of Scripture it remains one of the best sources of reassurance and hope during the uncertain and troubling times of life. This book offers some timeless truths to promote a healthier, spiritual, inner well-being.
The book draws from the four habits of the “blessed man” listed in Psalm 1. It reveals how life-changing these habits can be if one chooses to seriously live by them. These habits touch several subjects such as obedience, holiness, true faith, spiritual maturity, proper Christian behavior and others. The book reveals how true prosperity and blessings are not necessarily money and possessions but it is a quality of life that far surpasses material possessions. All these things and more are expounded upon in an interesting and easy-to-read style. The author has used several anecdotes to create a classic that is bound to be a blessing to all who read and practically apply it.

Description

Skyboarders is an exciting new serial fiction novel set in a post-apocalyptic world lost in the distant future.

It is the year 1277 according to the City Calender of the Valley of Karr. It has been seventy-six years since the last Emperor, Melakur TeRasa, was brutally assassinated and the Palace burned. His two sons were either killed, or mysteriously vanished. Now people say that both must be dead, or one of them would have stepped forward to claim the throne.

In that time, the southern Houses have gained strength and power, looming over the last free packs of the north, and an ancient threat is growing deep under the ground. People are vanishing, strange armored men with no faces are appearing at night, able to fly without a skyboard, and half-demon “von-men” with glowing eyes are roaming the streets dragging unsuspecting peasants down to subterranean imprisonment.

Description

Of the 120 men who enlisted in “Company H” (Or Co. Aytch as he calls it) in 1861, Sam Watkins was one of only seven alive when General Joseph E. Johnston’s Army of Tennessee surrendered to General William Tecumseh Sherman in North Carolina on April, 1865. Of the 1,200 men who fought in the First Tennessee, only 65 were left to be paroled on that day. “Co. Aytch: A Confederate Memoir of the Civil War” is heralded by many historians as one of the best war memoirs written by a common soldier of the field. Sam R. Watkin’s writing style in “Co Aytch” is quite engaging and skillfully captures the pride, misery, glory, and horror experienced by the common foot soldier.

Most live by the sword in this world where the greatest kingdom, the Divine Yigan Confederacy, maintains dominance by crushing any nation that will not submit to them. The Gellic Nation has only survived because the Confederacy needs them. However, this tribal nation is very aware how easily their ally could destroy them. They also know the Confederacy’s need of them is waning. The Gels must obey when they are ordered into lands held by dark magick to eliminate a malevolent cult. In sinister lands, they find people practicing wicked and sexual activities, find sorcerers engaging in a dark ritual to infuse an army with infernal powers. But sometimes good and evil are not as they first seem, and sometimes when the light betrays you, a greater ally can be found in the dark. Some content unsuitable for children under 17.

Description

Aliens, ancient gods, humor, beautiful Valkyries, heros, conniving nobles, betrayal, greed, incest, a magical gold horde; this story has something for everyone.
Fafner, from the planet Zaftan 31B and the most notorious criminal in the universe, is stranded on Earth after civilization has been ravaged by disease, war and pollution. He decides to hone his felonious skills by stealing the powerful artifacts developed by another alien, Alberich. But Alberich is determined to regain the artifacts or at least make Fafner pay for stealing them.
Alberich’s devices, made for the magical Rhinegold, give the user vast powers. The Chip, allows the user to receive information instantaneously from anywhere in the universe. The second device, called the Helm is a beanie-like hat that allows the wearer to see the life lines of every creature in the vicinity.
Wotan, god of the Saxons and Vikings, has to recover the Rhinegold in order to prevent his aging. He recognizes the greatly enhanced power of the golden horde thanks to Alberich’s genius. He plans to make a big comeback and regain millions of worshippers. To take the devices away from Fafner, he needs a old-fashioned hero: one who is strong of arm and weak of brain.
While these conflicts rage on, Brunnhilde, an ex-Valkyrie, searches for the meaning of true love. Despite a few false starts and some problems such as the wrath of the god Wotan and mean-spirited men, Brunnhilde struggles to understand mortal love while she seeks a good man to try it out on.
If you like authors Terry Pratchett, Tom Holt or Chris Moore, you’ll love this story.

With a new and exciting voice, Cat Connor introduces Ellie Conway, an FBI Agent who challenges the rules with her attitude, sense of the ridiculous and how she tackles a serial murderer with a difference: a murderer connected with Ellie’s internet poetry chat room.

With a litter of bodies ‘presented’ in unexpected places, Killerbyte is a provocatively bizarre and entertaining dance. Ellie, with the aid of Mac Connelly, must track down a seemingly motiveless and ghost-like murderer, who defies detection. After her own mother is dispatched by this slaughterer, Ellie fears for the lives of everyone close: her lover Mac, her father, her boss Special Agent Caine Grafton, and chat room colleagues. Reluctantly she begins to suspect her boss, colleagues and, her brother Aidan.

A chance remark provides a connection between past hurts and present pain.

Kurt’s life has been one dead end after another since he was convicted of attempted rape thirty years ago.
Inspired by a dream, he thinks he’s finally found the way to Easy St. and it starts with kidnapping Vicky, the woman who had him arrested all those years ago.
Surely Vicky’s husband, wealthy investment consultant Jimmy, would pay handsomely for the safe return of his wife.
But Kurt soon learns that even Easy Street has its share of pot holes.
After the road trip from Hell, Kurt arrives in Florida to learn that Jimmy is planning to leave Vicky and may not be interested in saving her. On top of that Jimmy’s mysterious mistress wants her own piece of the action.
To make matters worse, Kurt gets on the wrong side of a biker, a bookie and an ex-Navy SEAL who seem determined to make the rest of his life as painful as possible.
Meanwhile, Danny Putnam is enjoying life in Florida. He owns a successful dive shop and has a very comfortable lifestyle until he starts having bizarre dreams about his murdered wife and a beautiful woman he has never met. Suddenly his comfortable life becomes very complicated.
In the first novel by Tim Baker the lives of four people will meet at a crossroads where love, hate, betrayal and honesty converge for some very surprising results.

Description

“A riveting true story that reads like a high-octane crime thriller.”
—Midwest Book Review

“A true crime memoir reminiscent of Basic Instinct.”
—Reader Views online

“Remember the movie Fatal Attraction? And the movie Basic Instinct? And the movie Play Misty For Me? Put all three in a blender, hit frappe and stand back. What comes out would be Gary Taylor’s new book—Luggage By Kroger.”
—Author Randall Radic

Reporter’s Award-Winning True Crime Memoir
Offers Inside View Of Notorious Texas Fatal Attraction Tale

Since its publication in December of 2008, Luggage By Kroger has established itself as one of 2009’s top true crime thrillers, winning awards in five national book contests and adding to the legend of a classic American murder mystery story that has been grabbing headlines since 1980 as the definitive real-life fatal attraction saga.

In Luggage By Kroger, former Houston Post reporter Gary Taylor recounts his intensely personal involvement in the trail of controversy that has followed Texas attorney Catherine Mehaffey Shelton for nearly three decades. It’s a trail littered with murder investigations and acts of violence that has warranted coverage by media outlets as diverse as People magazine, The Dallas Morning News, the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Press, CBS-News 48 Hours and the A&E channel’s American Justice. It’s a trail that has placed Taylor in the public eye as a true-life fatal attraction interview subject on talk shows from Oprah Winfrey to Sally Jesse Raphael. It’s a story that has been twice-optioned for television docudramas and served as the lead segment on a prime-time TV special called Crimes of Passion.

But the intimate details of Taylor’s fatal attraction tale have remained under the radar until now. With his true crime memoir, Taylor invites the reader to grab a seat on the wild ride of an obsessive relationship, from its erotic beginning through the violent end and the trials required to clean up the mess. Laying bitterness aside, he employs self-deprecating humor to share comical anecdotes and maintain a reporter’s detachment on what becomes a tale of self-discovery through a potentially deadly encounter that nearly cost him his life.

Luggage By Kroger defies all efforts to pigeonhole it into one specific genre. In the end, however, it emerges as an action-packed and suspenseful memoir of a personal odyssey that should tantalize a wide range of reading interests.

espionage, spy, China

Description

“The Guys Who Spied for China is written by Gordon Basichis. The novel is a
roman a clef, based on the author’s very real experiences helping to uncover
American made Chinese Moles and their elaborate and most formidable
espionage network that began functioning just after the Korean War. We can
see from the recurring headlines that it still functions today.

The book chronicles an offbeat relationship between two disparate souls, the
author and a senior high level intelligence operative, who form a strange
union through fate and circumstance. It is quirky and often funny. It
is very different from typical spy novels. The author describes it as his
E-Ticket Ride into this shadow world of intrigue, danger and deception.

The story takes place largely in California, in the Santa Monica Mountain
Range, just above Beverly Hills. California has long been the happy
hunting ground for Chinese spies. It tells a tale that has yet to be told.
It does so with remarkable style and intimacy.

Gordon Basichis is the author of two previous books, the best selling
Beautiful Bad Girl, The Vicki Morgan Story. This book tells the tempestuous
affair between department store scion and Ronald Reagan Kitchen Cabinet
Member, Alfred Bloomingdale, and his mistress, Vicki Morgan. The Constant
Travellers is a New Age Fantasy about the West that never was. Basichis has
worked as a screenwriter and producer. He is Co-Founder of Corra Group,
specializing in background checks and corporate research. He has also been
a marketing executive and journalist. He currently lives in Southern
California.

Description

Camille’s mother Connie collects people. After Connie’s brother Wilson has ‘the accident’ (a single shot to the abdomen; the blood in the snow beside the flagpole; the siren and the ambulance), they move into an abandoned ski resort in Colorado with Wilson’s widow Wanda, an agoraphobic veterinarian, and her two sons, Russell, who only wants to be normal, and Wilsie, who is anything but normal. Determined never to use his voice, Wilsie communicates on a blackboard and records other people’s conversations on a Fisher Price tape recorder.

Camille’s mother Connie makes sure there are many voices to record: Teresa, an ex opera singer; Helen, Stacey, and Winnie, three Certified Veterinary Technicians; Margie, a lonely, suicidal librarian; Finn Green, a PR man; and a group of disillusioned hitchhikers no one will pick up.

Wilsie records the progress of their lives, a world of sex, death, and white noise, but when Wilsie is finally forced to use his voice Camille is left with over four hundred cassette tapes documenting the rise and fall of a micro society with one unmistakable message: we are all alone, even in the company of others.

With a cast of eccentrics that rivals “The Royal Tenenbaums”, ALONE IN THE COMPANY OF OTHERS is about people and their treasured possessions—a running tape recorder, a collection of diplomas, an attic full of disfigured mannequins, or shelves and shelves of books in an all but abandoned public library—and the distinctive role that each of us plays as part of a group dynamic. The book questions where each of us essentially exists—within the singular, the plural, or both.

Description

For little fashionistas everywhere. Join in with the sartorial adventures of one snazzy dresser as she discovers that so many clothes are too purpley, too prickly, too fancy, too … ! But, of course, there is something that she loves to wear …and it is just perfect.

Every kid knows that clothes picked out for them by a parent are never quite right. While many picture books focus on “getting dressed,” few touch on the comfort factor, which, for kids, ages 2-8, trumps style, sophistication and even cleanliness.

My 49-word, picture book, Too Purpley! presents a kid’s common complaints about the many physical and visual discomforts of clothing. Simply versed, yet universal in theme, Too Purpley! also hints at a child’s comfort with the familiar – providing a gentle reminder to parents that clothing battles aren’t always worth fighting.

Little did she know that her mother and uncle had other plans for her, plans which she detested almost as much as or even more so than her major. In any event, Sandy endeavors to break away from the family’s traditions and have a fun filled summer without interference. Was that going to happen? Not a chance, unless, if falling prey to a whirlwind of uncomfortable situations filled with rejection, heartbreak and unexpected turn of events is considered fun. Darn if her first free day didn’t come with two favors that ultimately change her life.

Description

It seems too good to be true. When Pete McFadden invents his own system of fortune-telling, he doesn’t really expect anyone to take it seriously. He can’t imagine that it will become Hollywood’s next spiritual fad. And he certainly never dreams that “Horokinetics” could make him famous. But it does. And when his creation becomes the battleground between a manipulative cult leader and an unscrupulous corporation, Pete learns a simple truth. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Stunt Road is an intelligent, cynical and above all entertaining foray into the murky world of for-profit spirituality. If you’ve ever raised an eyebrow at self-improvement schemes, corporate marketing mania or the general gullibility of your fellow men, then this book is a treat. And if you haven’t, then it is a must-read.

Memoir, Mental Illness, Drugs

Description

Carlton Davis, architect and artists writes a no holds bared story of his mental illness, which was undiagnosed for 30 years and landed him in a mental hospital twice. The first time in 1994 he walked out of the facility without permission because the hospital refused to treat a medical condition. He was returned after a visit to the emergency room of the local medical hospital. The mental hospital wanted to incarcerate him as crazy against his will. He refused and threatened to sue the institution. In the end he stayed to complete a 28-day program for alcohol and drug abuse. This trip to the mental hospital for addiction failed to cure him of the disease.

Mr. Davis, spent eight more years trying to end his addiction which included a trip to the Betty Ford Clinic in Palm Springs before he once again found himself in the same mental hospital after a suicide attempt. Voluntarily committing himself to the facility. Davis was immediately placed on involuntary hold against his will because the doctors stated he threatened his wife and doctor. It took Davis seventy two hours undo this hold and get himself placed in a unlocked part of the hospital, and another week before he was even able to get psychiatric help.

As he recounts in his book, Mr. Davis believed his life long troubles with drugs, instability, depression, rage, and periods of supreme exhilaration were caused by a childhood which included kipnapping and sexual abuse.

Davis finally received help and a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, which changed his life. Finally given proper medication for manic-depression, he no longer desired illegal drugs, or had suicidal tendencies.

It doesn’t help that Chester’s death has been ruled an accident by the sheriff of this backwoods community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Or that Sheriff Blaze Johnson happens to be Gertie’s son.

Whether it’s interrogating neighbors, spying, or impersonating the FBI—not to mention staying one step ahead of Blaze—Gertie will do whatever it takes to solve the case, even when the killer takes aim at her.

Description

As one of the first post-WWII Baby Boomers, Jim Chambers’ childhood and early teenage years were in the 1950s, a remarkable decade for the United States that saw enormous political, technological, and cultural changes. Although many books have covered the headline-making events of the era in great detail, few of these books give the reader a real feel for what daily life was like for Americans living in that decade, especially for kids growing up then. The author remembers the little nuts and bolts things of daily life for families during the fascinating decade known as the Fabulous Fifties. “Recollections” perfectly blends paying homage to the little day-to-day rituals with a larger scale examination of social issues and mores of the times, and it’s equally entertaining on either level. “Recollections” is a warm, lovingly honest, and fascinating portrait of America in the mid-20th Century.

Description

“Jacob’s Courage” is a tender coming of age love story of two young adults living in Salzburg at the time when the Nazi war machine enters Austria. This historical novel presents accurate scenes and situations of Jews in ghettos and concentration camps, with particular attention to Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. It explores the dazzling beauty of passionate love and enduring bravery in a lurid world where the innocent are brutally murdered. From desperate despair, to unforgettable moments of chaste beauty, Jacob’s Courage examines a constellation of emotions during a time of incomprehensible brutality.

Called, “gut wrenching” and “heart rending,” this coming-of-age love story allows the reader to comprehend the terror experienced by Holocaust victims on a personal level. Yet, it also reveals the triumphant spirit of humankind and demonstrates how ordinary people can perform extraordinary acts of courage when the lives of loved ones are in danger.

A film company has expressed interest in the movie rights and Jaocb’s Courage has been reviewed extensively, including by Jewish Book World and by the Association of Jewish Libraries. This book resides at many international Holocaust Museums, including Yad Vashem, The US Holocaust Museum, the Toledo Holocaust Museum, the Illinois Holocaust Museum and a Holocaust museum in Poland.

A teen uprooted from her home, she is forced to live with her eccentric grandmother whom Destiny has been taught her whole life to fear. She must start her life over living with an old woman who is not only a stranger to her, but just strange. All Destiny wants is to fit in with kids like her and begin to pull her life back together.

But Destiny soon discovers she is not like the other teens at all. She has developed the family gift of being able to see and talk to ghosts and her estranged grandmother will be the one person who can help her understand what the fates have dealt her…a haunted destiny. Being the town freak does not put Destiny high on the potential friends list, but Jake Turner sees something in her that the other teens from Blake High don’t. Destiny is actually able to put her unique talent to use and help Jake communicate with his recently deceased sister forming a bond between them that no one else can share or know about. In an extraordinary twist of events, Jake’s girlfriend Amy receives some furniture with some frightening ghostly spirits attached to it, and Jake turns to Destiny for help.

Now Destiny must struggle with a force she is unprepared to handle. When a party at Amy’s becomes a showdown between good and evil will Destiny have what it takes to save Amy and the others? Will the help of her grandmother, two resident ghosts and a surprise visitor be enough to rid the Morgan family of the evil possessing them and allow Destiny to finally gain the acceptance she so desperately wants? Or will the ancient evil destroy them all?

Jack Weaver can’t seem to escape a life of lies. First as a Seal, then as an undercover CIA operative working in the largest drug cartel in Columbia Jack’s entire existence is based on being someone other than who he truly is. While serving as Chief Security Officer to one of the most dangerous men on earth Jack uncovers a plot to assassinate the President-Elect on Inauguration Day. Suddenly things become infinitely worse when his ex-SEAL commander who is now a Deputy Director with the CIA shows up and blows his cover. Forced to kill him, Jack is now on the run not only for his life but he’s the only one who knows about the assassination attempt, other than a mysterious man who calls himself the Emperor and seems to be calling all the shots.

Moreover, Jack is being haunted by terrifying dreams from his past that seem to be connected to this entire conspiracy involving his old SEAL team. Desperate for answers Jack breaks into the home of Vice-President elect Warren Walters, another SEAL teammate, where he is discovered by Warren’s abused wife Caroline. He forces Caroline to go with him with the intentions of letting her go once he gets the information he needs. Overcoming her fear of Jack, Caroline refuses to leave, seeing this as an opportunity to escape her own life of lies. This starts a chain reaction of feelings neither of them is prepared for. The Emperor has seriously underestimated Jack’s determination to find answers and is losing control over all the puppets he has in play. As Jack and Caroline come closer and closer to the answers and each other, will they be able to save the President-elect’s life as well as their own, or will a blast from Jack’s past destroy them all?

Determined to turn the occasion of their investigation to his favor, Alan vows to end Joe’s career by beating him to the killer and currying favor with their new boss. But when it comes to the canal nothing is ever what it seems: as Joe and Alan set out to catch their killer, they’re about to stumble across an unspeakable secret, one that’s waiting for them just beneath the water’s dark surface…

The Order of Eden seems to be the only force for order and peace, offering a place in their new society in trade for a large cash investment and their freedom. Captain Valance and the Triton crew are finally working as a unit. Oblivious to the grand designs of the Order of Eden, they will be drawn into the center of a galactic conflict over a planet with a secret that’s been buried for decades. The question put to them is not if they can prevail, but if they can survive. Frontline takes the Spinward Fringe series to an epic scale without leaving what makes Space Opera great behind. Frontline has the drama, grit, characterization and humor we’ve come to expect from Randolph Lalonde.

Description

Forewarned by his mother to pick his friends carefully, Richard finds himself dangling from a rock and about to drop into the Gulf of Mexico when his chosen pal drives his car off the Galveston seawall. Convicted of road rage forty years later, this is but one of the many stories he tells the constantly changing cast of court-appointed psychologists and therapists he winds up going through before it’s all said and done. Growing up with two brothers and a sister was no picnic back in the fifties. So what if oldest brother John was a natural athlete and a bona fide genius?
Take away his speed reading skills and the photographic memory and he was just another jock. Middle brother Harry, on the other hand, was the no account rat of the family and a veritable thorn in Richard’s side. As for his on-again, off-again younger sister, who knew where she stood? If Judy idolized him like he thought she did, why was she always squealing on him? And could his mother’s twisted bedtime stories be the root of Richard’s problems?

Description

This is the true story of a father reunited with his young son. He discovers, over time, that the boy’s mind is fractured into more than 400 multiple personalities that protect his secrets. The family’s lives are threatened when they discover he is also possessed by demons that seek to destroy them. The boy’s mother offered her son up to a satanic cult and to abuses so horrific that they seem more like fiction than reality. How does this happen to a God-fearing family, and how do they deal with what is revealed to them? A young boy’s secrets could destroy this family, or, at the very least, bring it to its knees.

When the O’Neal family is threatened by mysterious forces, cultic rituals, and a labyrinth of obstacles, they find out how far they will go and how hard they will fight to save one of their own and themselves in the ultimate, real life battle of good verses evil.

Description

A woman’s struggle as she searches for her missing husband leads to shocking revelations about him, his family, and the crime of adult kidnapping.

Abby meets Caiden when she is sixteen years old and knows she has met her soul mate. At nineteen Abby marries the love of her life and together they begin a family of their own. Life gives them a gift, but this gift is short lived. After seven years of marriage it ends.

>Abby is left alone with her two children and the bloody clothes that Caiden was last seen in. With the horrifying revelations from her mother in law Abby sets out to prove her husband is indeed alive and that he’s been taken against his will by his mother, brothers, and sisters in a sick and twisted game of keep-away.

Knowing her husband isn’t dead, Abby, with the help and support of her family, begins a search that takes her from Arizona to Arkansas and lasts for a span of eight years.

On a visit to Caiden’s birthplace, Abby and her brother Chase meet with Caiden’s best friend who fills them in with the secrets of her husband’s childhood and of the hell he endured. He tells them of the nightmares, the deceit, and the abuse Caiden suffered at the hands of his family.

More determined than ever to locate her husband, before his family kills him, Abby hires a private investigator who opens the doors to Caiden’s private world of hell and exposes his family for what they are, but will he be on time? Will Abby be on time to save her soul mate? Can she make him want to fight one last time?

River of Tears is a tale of personal triumph over heartbreak, of unconditional love and bravery. It is a compelling modern-day story depicting how the power of love can overcome even the darkest facets of human nature. The story demonstrates how self-determination and loyalty can lead to unimaginable accomplishment, regardless of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. It is a story of faith in the face of tremendous loss, where fear and discouragement threaten to steal the last glimmer of hope. Will this shred of hope be enough to sustain, or will it ultimately crush Abby’s dreams of lasting happiness?

River of Tears will take you on a journey you will never forget, it will make you want to gather all you love close and keep them there, because we never know what’s around the next corner of our lives.

The Accused Madam is founded by Vicky Gallas and offers the European liberal perspective on adult business prosecutions and legal pursuits in the US. Daily topics frequently involve commentary on political agendas and current news specific to government, law, and adult business.

Vicky Gallas owned escort services in Orlando, Florida for a decade when she was prosecuted on organized crime charges and subsequently acquitted by a jury of her peers.

Description

Vicky Gallas opened her Orlando-based escort service in 1992. Beginning in 1994, she became the subject of years of law enforcement-induced intimidation and publicized misinformation. In this honest and shocking story never before told, we learn about the hypocrisy that permeates a legal system in which business owners can be prosecuted by the very individuals who benefit from their services. In Memoirs of an Accused Madam: The War on Adult Business in Orlando, former escort service proprietor Gallas offers a revealing view into the workings of escort services and the extremes a community’s “morality police” will go to shut their doors and imprison their owners. This memoir is not intended as a defense of escort services. Rather, it is a straightforward and carefully documented overview of the fundamental flaws in the U.S. criminal justice system and how one woman stood up to state RICO charges to become the only escort service owner in the U.S. to be found not guilty.

When I left McKarey’s Bluff ten years ago, I never planned to return. Ariel Morgan had refused to marry me and there was nothing left to stay for. Now Ariel is dead, supposedly by her own hand, and her younger sister, Rachel, is spiraling toward that same fate. Rachel used to be in love with me, maybe even more than Ariel. But she was a kid then. Now I’m returning to save a woman. And McKarey’s Bluff is a small town haunted by more than Ariel’s death. Years ago fifteen prostitutes disappeared. Sometimes the ghosts come back, not that I believe in them. But something isn’t right here, and I’m seeing things I can’t explain. I came to save Rachel, but I’m not even sure I can save myself anymore.

A teenage runaway disappears from the streets. The only people that care, or even notice, are her two best friends who are also runaways. For reasons of their own, they can’t go to the police for help.

They seek out Michael Sykora, a software designer by day and hit man by night. Known on the streets as The Ghost, Michael has a reputation for taking on the twisted criminals. Rapists. Child molesters. He has never been hired to find the lost. Until now.

Michael teams up with ex-prostitute Nicki and full-time hit man Sean. Together they bend the rules of the justice system in order to find a young girl few people care about. In the process, they uncover a world where salvation comes with a price tag and God’s words are used to incite fear in a congregation of believers.

Description

Shawn Kleiner has it all: money, fame, a skyrocketing career as an international musical phenomenon, his beautiful girlfriend Amy, and all the women he wants– until the night Amy has enough and leaves him stranded in a Scottish castle tower.

He wakes up to find himself mistaken for Niall Campbell, medieval Highland warrior. Soon after, he is sent shimmying down a wind-torn castle wall into a dangerous cross country trek with Niall’s tempting, but knife-wielding fiancee. They are pursued by English soldiers and a Scottish traitor who want Niall dead.

Thrown forward in time, Niall learns history’s horrifying account of his own death, and of the Scots’ slaughter at Bannockburn. Undaunted, he navigates the roiled waters of Shawn’s life– pregnant girlfriend, amorous fans, enemies, and gambling debts— seeking a way to leap back across time to save his people, especially his beloved Allene. His growing fondness for Shawn’s life brings him face to face with his own weakness and teaches him the true meaning of faith.

Blue Bells of Scotland is both a historical adventure and a tale of redemption that will be remembered long after the last page has been turned.
