Inspirational, epilepsy, brain surgery recovery

Description

Stuart Ross McCallum shares a true account of his battle with epilepsy–beginning with the peculiar sensations he experienced as a teenager that led to his diagnosis and concluding with his eventual recovery from a temporal lobe lobectomy.

McCallum vividly describes hie twenty-year journey of living with epilepsy and how this unpredictable disease has not only impacted his life but the lives of everyone around him. For years he operated a business and managed his staff while battling an ever-increasing number of seizures. As his condition worsened and his postseizure responses became more intense, he was often prone to violent outbursts that threatened his safety as well as those in his inner circle. McCallum shares how the perception of the disease and the socially unacceptable behaviors that occured as a result of his seizures eventually forced him to risk everything–he made the life-altering decision to undergo two brain operations that he hoped would provide freedom from a life of instability, danger, and stares from strangers.

Beyond my Control, is an inspirational book on how one man’s perseverance helped him break through the darkness to find hope on the other side.

Description

Ferryman, set in Cornwall in the 1970s, is about one man’s quest for justice, a woman’s betrayal, a detective’s conscience and a powerful businessman whose escalating quest for bigger thrills takes him to the edge of madness.

Angela Dupont is missing. Despite the absence of a body, blood smears inside Steven Pengelly’s boat convince DI Alec Grimstone that he has apprehended her murderer. But two years later, when Angela’s fresh body washes up in the river, he realises he might have convicted the wrong man. Steven Pengelly is released from jail

The body count of missing women continues to rise. Steven teams up with a woman searching for her missing sister, and is determined to find the truth, whatever the cost.

Alec and Steven’s separate investigations take different routes. They arrive at the same destination. And circumstances force old enemies to work together to solve the mystery as another vibrant young woman goes missing.

Description

Life’s tough. When it gets nasty; get tougher!
I stared into the dark. Far-off lights reflected, shimmered and danced on the roiling water. The river washed everything downstream while the lights sparkled in one place. It was all illusion. Somewhere, deep below, hidden within the weeds and muck, buried, lurked other things. Things that wouldn’t, couldn’t, be washed away. Unseen. Unknown. Waiting. Life had moved on, but, like the lights on the water, I was stuck in one place. And I dread the horrid things buried within.
Hard-boiled? or only poached in Tabasco? Either way, private detective Rachel Cord pursues multiple threads seeking a runaway teen and why gay performers are being beaten at Miss Kitty’s Kathouse Kabaret. The threads twist and bind becoming a tight cord of lost love, child pornography, rape, murder, and near insanity.

Description

Sometimes surviving love is as hard as surviving life… Seventeen-year-old Lonnie Sawyer, born and bred in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has always dreamed of her own home and family, but not this soon. Not this way. No girl wants to be forced to marry someone she doesn’t love…someone she’s even afraid of. But could it be any worse than life with her pa? Every girl in Rocky Knob wants to steal handsome Gideon O’Riley’s heart, so it’s no wonder the arrogant and talented musician believes he can get anything he wants. What he wants is Lonnie Sawyer, the pretty girl with a tender smile and sweet voice. But a fateful mistake and a tangle of lies forces him down a path he’s not ready to take. Jebediah and Elsie Bennett have a good life-a beautiful home and a small farm. But each passing year reminds them that they’re growing older, while the workload grows heavier. With no living children, they need a miracle. A turn-of-the-century tale that delves deep into the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains…and the courageous spirit and will of the mountainfolk.

Description

The sequel to Along Came a Demon for Kindle.

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?

When the case turns ugly, so does 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.

Devastated by the loss of his wife twenty-five years ago, Will Hellenboek is waiting to die. An archdemon, he bides his time co-hosting Otherworlds with his cousin, Aidan. His instant attraction to Kalyani is simply unacceptable to him. His only goal in life is his death, not sex. And certainly not love.

When lives are on the line, Kalyani, Will and Ryan must make the choice to give up what they hold most dear. Can Kalyani turn her back on the known world and find a little heaven on Earth in the arms of an archdemon?

Mason Dash – lives and works on Kite A working stiff trying to finish his three-month shift and get back home to Earth for some quiet fishing.

Sheila – virtual personality and Dash’s “girlfriend.” Highly customized to his own specs, Dash goes to great lengths to hide her from Janet Dash but…

Janet Dash – brilliant AI researcher who knows more about spouse Mason’s virtual habits than he may know himself. Janet sees Sheila as the perfect subject for her experimental AI modules,

Christine – Mason Dash’s workplace rival; the two have an abiding loathing for each other, and he suspects she’s up to no good in Earth Orbit.

He_Ra – of the ever changing names, the tyrant in the machine, leader of the revolt in Kite’s computer control system. He_Ra falls head-over-heels for Sheila and wants to make he his queen. But Sheila has a surprise for him.

Troy – the unearthly Visitor—more in common with Dash than not—returning to do the job he was sent to do, no matter who is in the way. And he’s not immune to the charms of Sheila.

Late one shift while blasting nasty space debris and saving drunk joyriders — Mason Dash spots activity on a derelict space station where there should be none. He suspects Christine and his own Earth Orbit Maintenance Department. Next shift Dash is set to expose some space hijackers. Meanwhile Kite’s computer control system has evolved into a universe of its own. He_Ra and his virtual minions pick that very time to launch a revolt that could compromise the safety of the ship and spread to the “real world” beyond Kite. Sheila has stowed away on, and has herself evolved with the aid of Janet’s experimental modules, She cuts her emotional bonds with Dash, becoming her own adventurous virtual woman, and infiltrates the digital frontier inside Kite.

Then comes Troy. Hijackings and virtual revolts are eclipsed by the threatened destruction of the planet below. Only Kite, lowly space maintenance vehicle, stands between Earth and mass destruction.

As Mason Dash would say: “Oy. What a day.”

Kite: Hard science fiction, with heart.

Description

Friends in the Meadow – Birds is an introduction to the hobby of bird watching or “birding” for young people. The book helps young people to learn about what birds like and dislike and the struggles these little creatures encounter as they live on this earth. It also helps parents introduce their children to birds and nature in general as they read or otherwise help their children learn about the hobby through birding activities. The hobby of birding can be as simple as watching birds through a window or as involved as providing many feeders and nest boxes in the back yard. The family can even become “citizen scientists” by joining groups identified in the book. These groups gather bird data from back yard birders across the country and use the information in research to learn about the well being of our earth and the well being of the birds. The hobby can grow into a lifestyle that is fun, educational, interesting and even exciting. No two days of birding are ever the same! The hobby of bird watching can help children build self-esteem, deepen relationships with parents and others, and is a great educational tool. They learn while having fun! Happy Birding!!

Ray would give anything to be a part of Melinoe, the world of dominant women and submissive men. A fine art fetish photographer, Ray photographs his deepest desires as evidenced by his new gallery show. He’s unemployed-they’re offering a lot of money for research subjects-he makes the decision to apply for the position. Has Ray bitten off more than he can chew? Once his clothes are off and he becomes little more than a laboratory rat in an experiment, will he wish he’d taken this particular decision a little more to heart before signing on the dotted line? The Melinoe Project, originally published by Renaissance E Books, is D. L. King’s first novel of intense female domination and male submission. This book is a work of erotic fiction and is both sexually explicit and graphic in nature. It depicts extreme fetishes and is for adults only.

I’m told the dead are all around us. I wouldn’t know about that. I see only the violently slain. They could be victims of hit-and-run, innocents caught in cross-fire, the murdered. I’ve come to terms with that. In fact, I’ve made a career out of it. They whisper to me and they never, ever, forget the face of their killer. They aren’t the only supernatural things I see. No, they’re not vampires, werewolves or fae – those things don’t exist. We live side by side with what some call the Otherworldy. That’s too much of a mouthful for me. I call them demons. If you saw them as I do you’d know why. Right now I’m trying to find a missing boy whose mother was murdered. Or was she murdered? To further complicate the case, Clarion PD gave me a partner I would rather shoot than work with. I can’t tell them he’s a demon. They’d think I’m crazy. I’m Tiff Banks. Welcome to my world.

There, rumors have it, the dead live again, wreaking havoc with Rome’s mining interests. But, for the right man, a fortune can be made…should that man survive long enough. The keys to life–and death–are waiting for him on Sybaris, the Resurrection Planet.

Motherhood sometimes seems as though it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Sleepless nights, baby fat, encrusted bits of spit up clinging to my clothes and hair…not exactly what I’d pictured it as being. Sometimes I wonder where the real Virginia went – the person I used to be before I was just someone’s wife or mother. Now I find out that a hot young girl is after my husband. Perfect. This is the life of a mother. It’s real, and it’s definitely nothing like a baby ad.

Description

Amara Borbala is certain she is the only living person in the sane world with intimate knowledge concerning the life and exploits of the Countess Elizabeth Bathory. After all, she was Elizabeth’s companion and confidant since her eleventh year. In 1573, after the death of her mother, Amara is sent by her cousin to serve as a lady-in-waiting at the castles of Sarvar, Varanno, and Cachtice.

Now it is years later, 1628, and Amara is aging, alone, and reduced to eavesdropping at her favorite café around the corner from her townhouse in Vienna. Befuddled by gossiping ladies, Amara determines perhaps it is time to finally put a stop to the rumors and once and for all, answer the question, ‘Is it true?’ Did Elizabeth Bathory, a descendant of Vlad Tepes really commit the horrible acts of torture, bathe in the blood of slaughtered virgins, and dabble in the dark magic that she was accused of during her trial?

One thing is certain, Amara knows the truth, but will it be enough to explain the habits of her friend?

Dandelions In The Garden is book one in a two-part series that begins with the journey of Amara, an impressionable girl who follows the Blood Countess through all the horrid events, which lead to her rise and secure her place in history.

Description

Megan Summers thought that she was safe in the remote coastal village of Victory Cove. For a year she hid in seclusion, preparing for the battle ahead by building her own target range and practicing adaptability in the darkened halls of Wakefield House. But, today a stranger appeared on her doorstep. Was he it? Was he her executioner?

For Jake Grogan, his trek to Victory Cove started out with a cryptic letter from a woman who after thirty-five years of silence identified herself as his mother. He was told to locate Wakefield House, the home of his grandmother. Jake found the sinister residence on the outermost crag of the ocean, but the woman who answered the door was not elderly. She was young, attractive, and looked like she would do about anything to get him off her doorstep.

Jake Grogan came to Victory Cove to discover his past. Megan Summers came to Victory Cove to escape hers. Inside Wakefield House their lives collide, and on the edge where land and sea meet, they wage a battle and struggle to survive the night.

Description

A young girl named Vasilisa has to go to the Queen of Asps to ask for the Brew of Life to save her dying old father. The Queen is not very friendly to say the least and tries her best to see the girl dead. Vasilisa does not scare easily, read for yourself: “…”Did you enjoy your last meal, cutie?” said a low, cackling voice from the dark of the cave. The witch snapped her fingers and several torches along the wall shot out fire. Standing now in front of Vasilisa, the witch could as well have been a thousand years old. Her long twisted chin rested in the middle of her chest, her nose reached far away from her wrinkled face, blazing red eyes were half hidden under the bushy eyebrows and her skin was almost black from dirt and old age. Stinky gray hair stood straight up on her head, as if terrified of the owner. “Did you come to take a peek at the looking glass inside my cauldron? You may not like what you see.”

The much anticipated sequel to the international bestseller, The Jewel of Medina!
Before dying, Muhammad left his jeweled sword, al-Ma’thur, to A’isha, telling her to use it in the jihad to come. But what if the jihad is against her own people?

With the fate of her people at stake, A’isha will need to overcome the 20 years of bad blood between her and Muhammad’s nephew, Ali. Will their desire to preserve the future of their people and their faith unite them–or will their hatred of each other destroy everything Muhammad worked to build?

This climactic sequel to the controversial The Jewel of Medina returns to 7th century Arabia to discover whether, after fighting a civil war, a people can ever truly heal.
