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.

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. In addition to several novels, Law has written other books under his own name, Stanislaw Kapuscinski, which cover esoteric topics such as the Key to Immortality, Visualization, and The Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism.

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.

Description

“Jack Owen has gotten himself in over his head. At his low-paying day job, employees are leaving suddenly, and there’s a car full of bullet holes stashed in his boss’s maintenance shed. It’s all starting to make him wonder just what kind of a car wash he’s working for.

At home, his best friends Mike and Chris need to separate their mother Regina and their abusive step-father Ted before they kill each other. Maybe they can get rid of Ted somehow, without Regina finding out…

Then there’s that old drunk in the neighbourhood who’s been beating his dog. Somebody should do something about that guy.

How did Jack’s life ever get so complicated, and how will he keep it all from his Dad and his sister?”

Description

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.

In the northernmost tip of the Valley of Karr, a young warrior named Tarek has mastered the art of skyboarding, but he still searches for clues about his missing past. He’s fought his way into a position of authority in the roughest ‘boardpack in the Valley, the Jelka, but his fight isn’t over yet.

Episode 1, Jelka, follows Tarek as he uncovers treachery among his superiors which will ultimately change the fate of the Empire.

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.

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.

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.

    Good luck, Stan

  3. I’m already done with October…these books showed I’d already clicked these tags…so you guys in October have another “vote”!

  4. Thank you to the two people who bothered to tag my book. Thumbs down to the person who removed a tag.

    I have tagged faithfully for several months, tagging around 600 books, but have not had the favor returned. Only about 40 tags were added from here.

    Todd, thank you for this site, but I’m not going to put in hours of work for negative return. Please remove my book.

  5. I finished October and November …trying to do a month a day and tag every book.

    My book is not listed yet. Please to be so kind as to tag my book “When I Remember Love.” http://www.amazon.com/When-Remember-Love-Trish-Silver/dp/1440119562/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237057770&sr=1-1

    My best,

    Trish Silver

  6. I’ve been tagging books but can’t remember some of the ones I have. Is there any way to check this? Thanks best to all. Gunter

  7. Hi Kelly,

    I’ve tagged your book on Amazon. Best Gunter

    Hmmm…some of my tags don’t seem to “stick…”

    That is, I tag a book, save my tags, go back and it’s as if I never tagged

    In other cases, my tags show with check marks, and of course I can’t tag again

    Any thoughts on what’s going on? I’m in a sort of loop doing many of the same books over and over…the fun is sort of wearing off

    Thanks

    Gunter, you can get Amazon to show you a list of your tags…go to “my Amazon…”, scroll down to “participation” and you’ll see an option for items you’ve tagged

  10. Finished this list! On to November when it comes. That’s where mine should be.

  11. Hi Gary Taylor, tagged you. Best Gunter

  12. Hi Everybody, I’ve completed the October list. All the best. Gunter

  15. I just finished tagging all books from October, 2009. Whew! Thanks to everyone who’s tagged my book, The Taming of Corky, from February, 2010. I can tell that this is working!

  16. I’ve already hit all your tags, including those for your hardback. My books are on the March submission list.

  17. Hello, I completed the list for October. My book Walk In The Light is on the April 2010 list. Thanks for all your tags.
