Arthurian, Merlin, Avalon

Description

Chaos ensues as Rome abandons Britain, leaving native Britons alone to defend their shores from the growing Saxon invasion. Set in 5th Century Britain, this retelling of the traditional legends of Merlin, King Arthur, and Avalon, blends a mixture of historical fact with Arthurian fantasy.

Refreshingly innovative, the tale spans the mysterious birth of Merlin, climaxing with the conception of Arthur, the legendary future king of Britain. A young Merlin advises three High Kings: to fight through the bedlam, fight for the right to rule, fight to save the future treasure of Britain!

Interlacing love, revenge, mystery and murder, with a dash of humor, this coming of age adventure is a guide through the shrouded tales that embrace the…Sons of Avalon.

High School, Basketball, Thriller

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.”

futuristic romance, Knights, sperm donor

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

Description

My name’s Alex Cheradon. I’m a private investigator. That means I investigate…private…stuff.

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.

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?

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

Description

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.

Things went further . . . and once they had, once I returned to earth from the euphoria . . . I wrestled with my feelings at that frank realization, questioning whether our said objective was entirely true.

The author’s recovery story will also be a inspiration to those who find themselves battling a one-size-fits-all system that is supposed to be helping them.”
Tom Horvath Ph.Dl, ABPP
President, Practical Recovery Services
“Melanie Solomon has distilled much information about the limitations of 12-step programs-limitations of which she has personal experience. Her response is to array the reason and resources other people might seek to supplement or substitute for AA and its ilk. Her contribution to the field is heartfelt and invaluable, and will help many others.”

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.

A whole universe of promise,
but nowhere to hide from ourselves.

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?

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.

Description

If you flee when you should’ve taken a stand, it could come back to terrorize you. That’s never been truer than in False Refuge:

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. Alex will do it his way to the bitter end.

Description

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.

Freemasonry, Time Travel, Voodoo, Conspiracy

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.

The romance novel When I Remember Love, a beautiful young woman grieving the sudden death of her mother is invited to stay with her favorite aunt in California. As she arrives in Los Angeles, Jenna Holden has no idea that her life is about to change forever.
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.

Description

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

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..

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.

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

Natalie Wood was a Hollywood icon, beloved by millions for her performances in such classics as Miracle on 34th Street, West Side Story and Rebel Without a Cause. Married for the second time to actor Robert Wagner and the mother of young children, Natalie had everything to live for. Her bizarre death on or near the yacht Splendour on a chilly November evening in 1981 has been shrouded in mystery. In his recent best-selling memoir Pieces of My Heart, Robert Wagner told his version of what happened on the yacht Splendour on the night his wife died. But is Wagner’s version accurate? Who knows the truth? Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour is the result of a decades-long investigation by journalist Marti Rulli and Dennis Davern, Natalie’s friend, confidant and captain of the Splendour on that controversial night. Painstakingly researched and written from the heart, here is an in-depth examination of Natalie Wood’s life—and death.

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.

Description

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.

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.

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.

Ghana, Second Coming, Religious fiction

Description

Set in a smal coastal village in Ghana, “Gatekeepers” explores the coming of the World-Saviour of the end-times from the perspective of six world Religions; demonstrates the essential oneness of the Religions; and makes a case for unity amongst the followers of these Religions in the search for this divine world Figure.

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.

Adult fiction, Humour, Comic novel

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.

Available now from Amazon or Olympia Publishers.

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
