Hot Run

Hot Run

by T. Steven Sullivan

“If you like submarine warfare, mixed martial arts, and a book with plot twists that keep you guessing, you’ll love this military techno-thriller by T. Steven Sullivan.” ~ Ben McQuerry, US Navy Retired (Submarines)

“Awesome read brother! You kept this former ground-poundin’ grunt intrigued in the life of a squid!” ~ a message left for T. Steven Sullivan on Facebook.

T. Steven Sullivan, a former US Navy Diver aboard fast-attack submarines, uses his experience to craft the story of “HOT RUN”.

HOT RUN tells of 2nd Class Petty Officer Thomas Quinn, as he prepares to ship off to Officer Candidate School, to be commissioned. Quinn thinks he has the perfect mentor in his submarine’s Commanding Officer, Captain Michael Maddox. However, when a special operation brings some mysterious cargo and its foreign escorts aboard the USS Key West, it’s up to Quinn and his rag-tag band of SEAL team wannabies to find out why the interlopers seem to be gaining control over Captain Maddox and the submarine.

This story will transport you into the life of a submariner like no other submarine novel has done before. Weaved into the narrative are the subtle details which make submarines one of the most harrowing assignments in the military. From the smells of the synthetic air, to the mental fatigue which comes from having nowhere to get away, except for a coffin-sized bunk, these stresses are what the conspirators exploit to keep the crew in check as they race to use the submarine in the most grievous attack on America in history.

Resurgence Part 1 Contact

Resurgence Part 1 Contact

by Sacha Valero

The first human scouting of the planet would be done by an Earth Coalition Carrier Group which deployed one week after the probes data had been received. Once it was determined that the planet would be suitable for relocating some of the Milky Way’s twenty billion or so inhabitant’s volunteers were sought. The initial colonizing fleet would consist mainly of engineers and the mechs required to begin building the infrastructure. Once the infrastructure was in place to maintain sufficient numbers, more volunteers were sought and for the next five-hundred and sixty years the humans from the Milky Way went forth and multiplied believing they were alone in this new galaxy just as they thought they were alone in theirs. They were wrong on both counts.



Jangu Jetrekk Betrays the Confederation

Jangu Jetrekk Betrays the Confederation

by Gerald Sallier

“Calamity has found you today, Molotov,” Jangu bellowed as he rushed out the door. “No Teran shall suffer a traitor to live!”

So begins “Jangu Jetrekk Betrays the Confederation,” a military science fiction comedy set in a perpendicular universe. To some, the Confederation is a feudal nightmare where the impoverished masses toil for the privileged few across the Forty Systems. To others, it is a land of limitless entertainment and a halfway decent place to wait to die.

But to Jangu Jetrekk the Confederated Systems of Tera is more than a mere nation-system: it is an ideal, a way of being, an attitude exemplified in the producers. The best and brightest of Terankind, the producers work the people and shape the worlds. Our hero blogs on his Ramblr account about the perils of undervaluing his fellow supermen, the mental pitfalls of Syndicalism, and the worthless hack artistry of the shifster class.

Our hero’s blog is the second least viewed in the Confederated Ansible Network, a mere handful of views ahead of “Metaphor for the Futility of Being,” a looped hologram of a black ball bouncing in black space. However, Fortuna herself seems to have swung her flaming sword of chaos in Jangu’s favor, because a certain fascist dictatorship has taken hold on the desert planet of Moloch, with our hero as the intellectual founder.

Aided by a robot turned love slave turned unwilling machineservant and beset on all sides by regulation-obsessed Conditioners, psychotic Empaths high on schadenfreude, and the hushbug of Psychokinesis, can our hero save the Confederation from mediocrity and the teat of the nanny State? Or is Jangu yet another naive idealist like the protesting laborers of the steadily growing Indignance Movement?

And all the while, an ancient threat to Terankind stirs…

Going to Meet the Old Ones

Going to Meet the Old Ones

by Brian Edwards

Twenty years after its first publication, Brian Edwards’ first novella, Going to Meet the Old Ones, returns to digital print in its original edition. This classic science fiction saga of an alien civilization on a dying planet remains as compelling and thought provoking today as it did when it first appeared in 1990. The story follows the history of a primitive alien race as it rose to conscious thought following in the footsteps of the venerable Old Ones, who left their imprint on their world and then mysteriously disappeared, only to be reborn as another species evolved into a civilization of sentient creatures. As a retrospective ‘post-history’ of our own civilization, the hope, despair, and epic battles fought by future races on the Home Planet are captured in this saga as a lesson to all mankind about the legacy that will remain long after we are gone.

The Laughing Man---a novel of a superman

The Laughing Man—a novel of a superman

by John LaCarna

Before he is born, Dominic Jerome Marcus develops a theory: He predicts his birth and future life. Dom looks forward to the expanded universe his fetal brain foresees, for the spirit of adventure was in him from conception, and along with it came the spirit of laughter.
New Orleans—On April Fool’s Day, A.D. 2000, Dominic is literally born laughing, wild exuberant laughter that shakes his entire little frame. And that eerie look of knowing! His frightened mother rejects him, and the infant is eventually forced to kill his brutal father in self-defense.
Under the care and tutelage of “Doc” DiGiralomo, an iconoclastic, curmudgeonly psychiatrist, and Sister Mary Clotilda, a tough, cussin’ Cajun nun, Dom enters a life of superlative scientific and literary achievements and of high-risk adventure. His is an independent, free spirit, and he cheerfully accepts the strife that is the price of freedom.
Rural Mississippi—On the day of Dom’s birth, another member of Homo superior, Jessie Wayne Carson, the infant who is to become the Devine [sic] Father, enters the world, first making his presence known through healing the infirm and duplicating the miracles of Jesus. The spirit of gravity, the Devine Father despises levity as irreverence toward authority and towards life. He plans a world of everlasting peace, where he could rule over a self-perpetuating civilization of lobotomized people, created after a prolonged series of ghastly experiments. He recognizes Dom, The Laughing Man, as his fated nemesis, and seeks to destroy him.
The Devine Father identifies Rukiya, a child born in tribal Africa, as a fellow member of the superior race. Recognizing that she is destined to grow into an ebony goddess, he murders her parents and kidnaps her to be his empress.
He gives Rukiya three tasks to prove he worthiness: The first is to bring him “the grinning skull of the Laughing Man.” The second is to neutralize Helena Stirling, the electrifying writer whose novels of heroic, iron-willed individualists are “twisted fairy tails, where selfishness is virtue and altruism is vice.” This charismatic personality, born Helena Mikhalovna Danielovich in St. Petersburg, Russia, was a deviant from the political correctness of the Soviet Union. Helena defected to the United States as a young adult, and having experienced a Communist society first-hand, she became a powerful champion of capitalism and individualism in her fiction. The third task is for Rukiya to silence the glorious song and laughter of diva Bianca Angeli, with whom the Devine Father had had a love-hate relationship.
But Rukiya hides from the Devine Father that she seeks to avenge her parents. She joins forces with Dom, and they find in each other their ideal mates. Along with Helena and Bianca, they fake the completion of the tasks, and engage the Devine Father and his minions in a climactic battle to the death.

So far there were only a few score of the androids – but in time they were fated to inherit the Earth.

by Paul Rance

Luke Knoblitz became, in the 2040s, the greatest footballer on Earth. He had almost unearthly powers, as he helped Luton City become the greatest club side in the world. No one knew at the time that Luke was an alien.

As well as being an outstanding footballer, both with Luton and England, Knoblitz was also an outstanding cricketer for Bedfordshire and England. He made a successful (if dreadful) record with singing legend Tom O’Hawk, published poetry, acted, and fell out with wild American team-mate Jimmy Suitcase over fashion. Knoblitz also dated some of the world’s most desirable women, and was embroiled in a scandal involving the all-female Leeds hooligan gang, the White Rose Bunny Boilers.

The story of Luke Knoblitz wouldn’t be complete without a mention of the Luton managers who inspired him, such as the alcoholic, but successful, Morgan Bladard, and the pretentious, bumbling, but lovable Jason Shattlodes. Also meet the other great characters of mid-late 21st Century English football in ‘Luke Knoblitz – English Football’s First Alien Superstar’. Be amazed by Luton City star Jan Zsyzsziszowsky’s behaviour, gasp at the antics of fearsome manager Alison Curvaceous, and suspend your belief reading about the incredible exploits of Chelsea ‘keeper Billy Bubblehands.

Gunfight On Two Moons

by James Butler

Simon Hastings, an astrophysicist professor at M.I.T. researching dark matter and dark energy, is suddenly swept into another universe which occupies the same space as his own, only set at a different frequency and in a different cultural period. He enters a time (3065) set in the old west, where outlaws and corrupt officials exist. He doesn’t know what he did to change frequencies or why he wound up on a planet he calls Two Moons, but he’s afraid he’ll never get back to Earth. He finds himself in unfamiliar territory when he takes his note pad and pencil to a gunfight.



Quiet, the Tin Can Brains Are Hunting!

Quiet, the Tin Can Brains Are Hunting!

by Stephen Theaker

After Milon the Assassin is captured by the tin can brains, Mrs Anna Challenger, head of the Interstellar Bureau of Investigation and Skulduggery (Ibis for short), is forced to send a team of neophyte agents on a desperate rescue mission. But what is the secret that threatens the universe? Who is the evil mastermind calling himself Tortoisio? And why does Mrs Challenger, a married woman, find the sweat of Nanotus the Giant so fascinating? All these questions will be answered, while others will be asked, in this stunning work of fantastic fiction. Will Detective Jim Grimmett, the hard-bitten turn-of-the-century London copper, Professor Samson Quigg, the strangely driven biological scientist, and Nanotus the Giant, a superstrong and semi-reformed intergalactic villain who once vowed to take revenge on Milon for the destruction of his home planet, be able to set aside their differences long enough to save Milon, and with him, the universe? That it won’t be an easy ride for them is confirmed by the fact that Mrs Challenger has also to enlist the aid of Rolnikov, mad knight of Uttar Pradesh, and his squire, Pelney.

Vampire Rebellion (1)

Vampire Rebellion (1)

by M Rauf

To say that this is a vampire’s story is an understatement; for it is much more than that. It is about life, death, love, separation, power struggles, and everything that lie between light and darkness. But those who enjoy the preternatural quality of a vampire tale would find the quintessential elements intact.
Much like Anne Rice’s Vampires, the vampires in these tales are closer to human beings on the emotional level. Their physical prowess, although, makes then far superior predators. This is the first part of the series, which deal with the transformation of a young man, into a ruthless vampire. The subject is not exactly the conventional vampire material; rather, he is a sophisticated young thinker and lover, who learn to adore power. The persona of the main character is clearly that of a rebel, Who has traded a conventional way of life with an extravagant one. I hope that the readers thoroughly enjoy the details of this story!

Quantum Physics Encounters Consciousness: A Subtle Mechanism for Faster-Than-Light Communication

Quantum Physics Encounters Consciousness: A Subtle Mechanism for Faster-Than-Light Communication

by Shan Gao

It has been often claimed that our most fundamental physical theories, special relativity and quantum mechanics, prohibit the existence of faster-than-light communication. However, this claim is overstated. One obvious reason is that these theories are incomplete descriptions of the physical world, and in particular, they seem incompatible with each other. Can we communicate faster than the speed of light or even instantaneously? This is a deep question, and the final answer is still hiding in the dark.

This book will introduce an intriguing new idea, according to which the combination of quantum physics and consciousness may permit the existence of faster-than-light communication. The idea touches the very foundation of modern physics and the nature of consciousness, and if true, it will have far-reaching implications on relativity, quantum theory, the science of consciousness, psi research, and certainly, the communication technology itself.

Book & Thoughts Reviews:

What is original is the speculation that a conscious being might be able to make measurements on quantum states that no material device can match and that such measurements would permit FTL (Faster-than-light) signaling between distant observers.
—- Reviewer of Foundations of Physics

I agree with you that, if you modify quantum mechanics in such a way that an NSDD becomes possible and if you leave everything else the same, there might be a possibility for superluminal communication.
—- Philippe Eberhard, theoretical physicist, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, University of California

This conclusion (i.e. faster-than-light communication is possible using a conscious agent) is based on arguments that cover quantum physics, cosmology, metaphysics, biology, the nature of consciousness… An attempt at a world view of such broad scope is certainly commendable.
—- Reviewer of Foundations of Physics

Gentleman Companion Three

Gentleman Companion Three

by Patricia Kay

Gentleman Companion Three is the final book in the trilogy. The Gentleman Companion One and Two books stand alone with changing characters. Lawrence, the Gentleman Companion, is the pivotal character present through all three books.
The series begins with his diagnosis of HIV and in this final book; his disease has progressed to AIDS. As the Gentleman Companion, he grants wishes to his dates with his colleague, Angeline, the event director for the cruise ship. Together they review all applications, evolving individual wishes into extravagant dates. Unlike previous cruises, all of his dates are on the ship and not in the ports due to his decreased strength.
His physical changes require altered tuxedo pants for his swollen legs, pain monitoring by the ship’s doctor, and his butler learning how to care for his personal clothing.
This cruise is the anniversary cruise for the ship. Actors wander the ship in pirate costumes; Lawrence wears a pirate costume while guests search for the hidden treasure chest. With the introduction of his parents who are invited guests on their first cruise, Lawrence’s childhood is shared.
Eight dates each with life challenges meet Lawrence and find new direction when he approaches each of them with his compassion and understanding. By the end of this book, the reader will gain insight into others and embrace the value of acceptance in a world of differences.

Grant is surprised at his unexpected interest in Keri, the niece of columnist Luby Sanders. He thinks Luby is a hoot and can’t help but adore her. But she’s also playing matchmaker, trying to interest him in her niece. When Keri shows up at a log cabin fire in the middle of the night, she’s not the geeky college kid he expected. But he’s not about to fall victim to Luby’s orchestrations.

Even if her niece is beautiful.

Travelers

Travelers

by Diane Collier

Thirty years ago, the bombs fell. No one thought at the time that we would ever be able to recover. But time passes and the world moves on. This is the tale of a small caravan of travelers striking out to find a new home. Rumor has it that there is a Stronghold for the weary like them in the west. Hopefully, it’s not just a rumor this time.

Excerpt:
The couple managed to slip off to fool around sometimes though, and with a half naked Karen in his arms, Alex reached down and gave her breasts a playful squeeze. Karen let out a little squeek of surprise as she smirked back at him, “Really Alex? In here?”

“Well why not? I’m just happy to be alive you know?” He explained, continuing to rub her breasts, “I mean, I dunno about you, but I think it would be nice to confirm for sure I am.” His tone was playful as he leaned in and nipped her neck to compound the breast play.

Karen nodded, giving a content sigh as she enjoyed the rush of sensation. Her hand traveled behind her, more specifically down to his waist, rubbing the bulge in his pants. They continued to touch each other, moving faster and faster as their excitement rose. Finally, she turned around, mounting him and kissing him passionately. He in turn reached up, biting down hard on her neck, which caused her to cry out happily. Their hips grind together, until they reached the point where they couldn’t take it any more. Karen moved down, tugging at his pants. To hell with the rules. For this one moment, they wanted nothing more than to be as one.

DRO2WN

by Joshua Wright

IF YOUR LIFE passed before your eyes when you died, would you change anything? Providence Westinghouse decided to change something — he said “hello” to a girl on a bus — and it changed everything. This simple, seemingly innocuous exchange of pleasantries unraveled an avalanche of consequences that would affect friends and strangers alike.    In this work of Twilight-Zone fiction, the fate of dozens of bystanders hangs in the balance, to be decided by a few people who have been granted the ability to posthumously relive and change their past. The book revolves around a calamitous car accident on a major bridge in Seattle. Amidst the chaos of emergency, several characters relive their lives with an opportunity to change past events.
    Until his car plunged off a bridge just north of Seattle, everything had gone swimmingly for Providence in his young life. Or so he had thought. He awoke within his car, upon an enigmatic and deserted sandy plane of existence. A place where he could relive his past. His life becomes a fungible canvass, and he begins to repaint it.
    Meanwhile, hundreds of feet above Lake Union, rookie police officer Garth Harbinge finds himself struggling against all odds, and a cantankerous partner, to save an elderly woman with an infamous and fascinating past. His failure would lead to an explosion of new purgatorial possibilities. As if playing a game of Jenga with their memories, characters begin changing past decisions, affecting interminable timelines.
    DRO2WN is a new novel by first time author Joshua Wright. The book’s character-driven stories paint with a descriptive brush, allowing the reader to share in the trials, pains, hopes, and dreams of those struggling to find their way within a puzzling purgatory. Josh’s background in computer science (not coincidentally, he works on indie publishing at Amazon) and passion for metaphysical philosophy gives him a distinct voice to explore the questions we often ponder but lack the courage to confront.
    Pronounced simply “drown”, the book’s title is a play on the words “Downing In Oxygen”, which is the title track of a new CD from Josh’s band, The SAWG; an independent rock album that tells the same story as the book.  

    Mixing love story and philosophy, with plenty of surreal speculation, and a dash of action, DRO2WN is sure to take your breath away.

The Killing Moon (The Iron Wolves of Elbe)

by Dale Crowe

The Killing Moon begins with a writer on retreat at his cabin, his personal Elba near the town of Elbe, Washington. With the sound of breaking glass he’s thrown into a re-imagining of the werewolf genre with a twist on lycanthropic lore that’s never been seen before. A story of a man, a hunter and a killer who cross paths under the silver-blue light of the killing moon.

These are the first few chapters of a novel about a man who is drawn into the lives of a pack of werewolves in the Pacific Northwest. The story is one of romance and discovery between two men who are caught up in circumstances that vary from touching tenderness to savage violence. Can a man understand what it means in the heart of a wolf to love?

Sequel update (Nov 19th 2012): I’m still chugging along with the first draft of the expanded novel. A tentative release time is late December. Here’s hoping you have some werewolves to keep you company for the holiday season!
Many thanks to all the folks who have read and enjoyed The Killing Moon. Get ready for The Iron Wolves of Elbe!

TOGETHER IN ANOTHER PLACE

TOGETHER IN ANOTHER PLACE

by Jan Vivian

Imagine a camp not so very far from your own home, where you are taken because of your faith and customs. Imagine the elaborate deception, and coercion of some inmates, by the occupying authorities to conceal the true purpose of gathering families, gypsies and others in one over-crowded place where they are cared for, their children educated and where the men are often given work. Imagine being entertained by some of Europe’s finest cabaret stars, men and women who are prisoners just like you. Imagine an almost weekly roll call that determines who stays and who will leave in dingy freight wagons for an unknown destination – but you cling to hope, your family and fellows. Imagine being kept in ignorance of many days in unspeakable conditions until you reachâ?¦Auschwitz and Sobibor, in particular.
The author has sought to do so following a close look at a photograph that appears on a leaflet of the Hollandsche Schouwburg that he visited in Amsterdam – for a second time.
He failed in his efforts not to be overcome by emotions; nor could he keep from writing out a love story. People would still live and be together, in another placeâ?¦

Dreams of death dance in Katrina’s head, because no one gets between a vampire and her true mate.

Stolen: Song of the Sídhí #3

NEW Cover!

Stand alone story!

22,000 words

Snippet:

Slowly, I opened my eyes, focusing on Clarisse as she held Eric. The sight nearly threw me over the edge of insanity.

Clarisse touched my mate’s neck with a long painted fingernail, slowly tracing the beating vein. She licked her lips and I nearly lost it. I knew her threat was twofold.

My stomach heaved, rolling with bile.

Biting between Clan vampires was a thing of beauty, a very sexual experience between lovers or mates.

To the world, Clarisse appeared to be caressing him. To me, her warning smacked me in the face like a wet rag. Either I shut up or she would ‘accidentally’ extend her claws.

I shuddered, this time in fear. My hands went cold and clammy. She wouldn’t hesitate to do it. Her hatred of me knew no bounds. Killing Eric would be child’s play.

Read the series in any order! Each book is a stand-alone story with re-occurring characters…

If you prefer to read the series chronologically, then read in the following order.

– Stolen Love: Song of the Sídhí #3
– Forbidden Temptation of a Vampire: Sídhí Summer Camp #1
– A Dragon’s Dream of Love: Song of the Sídhí #2
– Vampire’s Forbidden Territory: Sídhí Summer Camp #2

– Christmas in Vampire Valley: Song of the Sídhí #5

My Cute Bookshelf Blog Review: I really liked Katrina as a main character. I really enjoyed reading the story from her point of view. I felt her pain and other feelings throughout the story.

by Constantza Sasha Pop

The reader will enjoy a fast-paced story-line with twists on love and deception. It is a smart romantic short story about Dora’s long life struggle for her pursuit of happiness. Those who already read my other short story will be pleasantly surprised to meet her again.

Thirty-Four Years Without You

Thirty-Four Years Without You

by Jean Martino

It was 2004 and it had taken him 34 years to find her.

Back in 1970, had he known what he did now, he would have told her he would never stop loving her, he would never forget her, but his path in life back then was taking him in a different direction, one that fate had planned for him long before they met and fell in love. He would tell her for now they had to part, but that one day, a very long time from then, he would find her again.

If she had known too, in 1970, that they would be separated for 34 years, it would have caused her even more pain. “How,” she would have asked him, “can I survive thirty-four years without you?”

But he had no answer to give her. Fate had already made the decision for him when, as a youth growing up in Brooklyn, he had decided he would become a professional poker player like his two Mafiosi uncles; and that meant total freedom to go to places where he could not take her. They had met at the wrong time in their lives and fallen in love, but for her own sake he had to now walk away.

And so, in 2004, he found her again, living in Australia, on the other side of the world from his home in California. She was two weeks short of her 70th birthday, and he was 76, and their being together again was complicated by tightened immigration laws and the FBI. But he had found her, and nothing was going to stand in his way of bringing her back into his life again.

Flights of Angels (Exit Unicorns Series)

Winner of the 2012 Global ebook Award for Best Historical Fiction

From the dark fairy tale forests of Russia…
To the steamy intrigues of a Hong Kong opium den…
From ancestral secrets long hidden in a Paris mansion…

He shivered at the thought of her being with someone else, but he knew he had to let go. He moved out towards the river and the evening ambience of Paris. He made his way back to Heran, no place for any fear now. This trial was just beginning.
Jared was amongst an ocean of tourists as he moved through the shopping district. Street performers were wowing the crowds and the smell of food floated through the air. He could see a young girl, maybe eighteen or nineteen years old, wobbling around outside the theatre; she had obviously been to see a show and consumed a little too much bubbly. They always threw cheap alcohol at the guests in these places. Jared smiled to himself, girls could be trouble sometimes. It wasn’t until he saw her bending down to a car window that he knew she could really be in trouble, if she took a lift from these strangers. She was giggling and barely able to keep her balance on the car’s open window frame. The rear door opened and she began to climb in. As Jared moved closer he realised that the driver of the car, was someone he knew well. As the car spun off, Argo smiled sweetly towards Jared. He accelerated at a ridiculously high speed and Jared began to chase them. It was a setup he knew, to lure him in. Argo was angry and he wanted revenge. This poor innocent girl was to be murdered and Jared had to act quickly.

1. Emily’s Torment: A Young Adult Werewolf Romance

At this point, the Death Stalkers will do anything to keep Jared from fulfilling his quest and conquering the wolf in himself or in Emily, and if that means a change from threatening their lives to threatening their teen romance, why not? After all, Jared has an old ex girlfriend and she’s still a death stalker. Why not see if they can trick Jared into a compromising position? And while they’re at it, why not make sure Emily walks in at the exact right moment? Can Emily possibly see past the deception, or will the hurt of Jared’s betrayal keep her from seeing anything?

2. Emily’s Patient: A Young Adult Werewolf Romance

It’s dark time for the young werewolf Jared and the girl he loves. Through deception, the Death Stalkers have convinced Emily that Jared has had an affair with his old girlfriend Ruby, and now, they’re both alone in Paris. For Emily, the quest has all but been forgotten in her pain and her anger, and to add to the confusion, she finds herself at the hospital room with the normal human who tried to protect her from a werewolf. Finlay has no idea what really happened, but Emily doesn’t mind. He’s so kind and so beautiful, and maybe it’s time she stopped trying to win Jared. After all, didn’t he just betray her?

3. Emily’s Boyfriend: A Young Adult Werewolf Romance

4. Emily’s Conflict: A Young Adult Werewolf Romance

Jared finally gets clear direction on the next step of his quest, and he’s ready to do whatever it takes to find the serum and give Emily the normal life she deserves. The only problemâ??Emily wants a life with Jared, and she doesn’t need it to be normal for her to want it! Why does Jared insist on following the quest that guarantees they can’t be together? Why is he so intent on thinking of himself and any werewolf as a monster? Why can’t she get the images of that girl, Ruby, out of her head long enough to think straight about him? And why, for the love of God, can’t things get just a little less complicated for even one night?

5. Emily Transformed: A Young Adult Werewolf Romance

Emily is ready to let Jared go and try for a live with Finlay. She knows she won’t really be happy, but at least she’ll have some measure of a life. Still, even if it’s petty, she’s determined to make sure Jared gets a good look at what he’s missing. Jared has troubles of his own.

Here is a preview:

Jared shook his head. The man’s condescending speech had been an attempt to regain his masculinity. The three of them stood in silence. Finally, Jared said, “I hope everything works out for you two.” God, it sounded lame, but Jared turned away, his cheeks hot with embarrassment and hoped they were too wrapped up in their situation to pay any more attention to him.
The heat in his cheeks grew stronger and Jared paused. Perhaps he’d never been this embarrassed. God, he had to be blushing beet red. He took in a deep breath. His cheeks were on fire, like he had some kind of fever. It didn’t make sense. Sure, he felt a little ashamed, but why was his body reacting this way. His stomach felt strange, and why was the sidewalk undulating like some kind of snake? Why had things suddenly become blurry? Why were things spinning? Why was Heran running toward him? Why was there blackness in the edges of his vision?
“Jared! Jared!” That was funny. Heran looked like he was shouting, but the words sounded soft, like he was shouting from two streets away. Ah! The couple was back. They both looked at him strangely, like something was wrong. What were they so worried about. They looked silly. So did Heanarad. Herralann. What was his name again? Heran. Jerad thought Heran looked silly, too. He was shimmering. How was he doing that? Now, he was reaching for Jared with arms that looked like octopus tentacles. No. No. He was disappearing. Why was he disappearing. Wait. Everything was disappearing. Everything was becoming black. Dark. Quiet. Darkâ?¦andâ?¦

Here is a preview:

Jared got to the top of the street and saw Emily moving towards a black car.
“Emily,” Shouted Jared.
He made his way quickly towards her.
“Jared,” She whispered.
She looked into his eyes and her stomach turned over. She felt sick and her heart started thumping. She had the heartbreak emotions seeping through her veins, it was anger topped with hurt, topped with visions of Ruby.
“Where are you going?” said Jared.
Finlay was now standing beside the car, looking at Jared and Emily.
“I’m going out with my friend Finlay,” She said.
“I just wanted to â?¦. I want to explain â?¦.,”
“You really don’t need to bother,” She said.
They stood staring at each other in complete silence.
“Do you want me to come back in ten minutes?” asked Fin.
“That would be good,” said Emily.
Fin got in the car and it rolled away from the hotel.
“I just…Ruby is notâ?¦” Jared mumbled.
“The truth is Jared, you are completely unable to speak to me and you can’t evenâ??”
Her words disappeared because Jared had grabbed her face in his hands and was kissing her hard. She wanted to pull away but could not. Instead, she kissed him back. Her body felt alive and she wanted more and more. She put her hands around his back and held him tight. He held her face firmly and was desperate for her. Their lips were connected, connecting the emotion that had been longing to reveal itself. Eventually he pulled back a little, kissing first her top lip and then the bottom. He kissed her forehead.
“That’s what I was trying to say,” he said.

The Geography of the Hand (Learn Palmistry and Hand Analysis)

The Geography of the Hand (Learn Palmistry and Hand Analysis)

by Cheira

Hand reading is a wonderful skill to have and acquiring it makes for a fascinating study. The purpose of this short ebook is to guide your way around the hand in preparation for learning its secrets. The second ebook in the series, “Palmistry Secrets: The Mounts and Major Lines,” which begins the study of the subject in far greater depth, is now available from the Kindle store.

Modern hand analysis has its roots in the ancient art of palmistry or palm reading. The Geography of the Hand is the first part of a comprehensive palm reading guide that aims to shine a modern light on the lines and marks that can be seen in your hands.

Palms have been studied for countless years – no one is really sure how far back the practice goes. Where modern hand analysis or hand reading diverges from the older version is in the fortune-telling aspect. The ancients saw the lines and marks on the palm as mysterious signs of some pre-ordained destiny. Today they are more often regarded as a kind of print-out of the brain. Modern palmistry takes the approach that what is in your hands you already subconsciously know. The hand reader or palmist is an interpreter of this for your conscious mind, rather than a psychic medium.

If you wish to study hands – your own or other people’s – you must first know your way around them. That is what this introductory guide offers. Once you are familiar with all the features of hand and palm, you can begin to learn their particular meaning and significance.

But there is much more to hand reading than this. The features of the hand and more specifically the palm cannot be studied in isolation from one another. It is in their contrast and comparison that the real art is to be found.

This ebook is based on a successful course in palmistry and hand analysis started in 1994. Whether you are just curious about what is in your own hands or would like to go on to become a professional hand reader yourself, the content you find here can prove to be very useful in your life.



Women of the Way

Women of the Way

by John B. Kachuba

Women of the Way is an inspirational historical novel that recounts the stories of three women in first-century Palestine that find their lives transformed when they meet an enigmatic, itinerant rabbi from Nazareth named Yeshua.

Miriam is a widow of independent means, defamed as a harlot and shunned by the villagers of Magdala precisely because of her independence. Joanna is a patrician woman and wife of Chuza, King Herod’s chief steward, who finds herself subjected to the unwanted advances of Philip, Herod’s nephew. Hannah, the Homeless One, is a young orphan roaming from village to village, barely able to keep herself alive.

The words and deeds of Yeshua draw the women to him. But Palestine is a volatile land where Roman rule and Jewish nationalism are on a collision course. Women are not treated as equals to menâ??despite Yeshua’s egalitarian views; feminism is centuries away. As Yeshua’s popularity increases, so do the numbers of his enemies and the women find themselves in mortal danger as they spread the teachings of the Way.

Drawn from Bible stories, Women of the Way blends adventure with spirituality, and history with religion to create a thought-provoking and moving book.

For the Love of God

For the Love of God

by Lawrence Gold

If you want to understand what life was like before effective medical care, look to faith healing cults that refuse treatment for their children. For readers of medical fiction, For the Love of God graphically depicts children’s pain, suffering, and their untimely deaths. The tragedy here is having treatment and not using it.

An incidental and shocking discovery of a cave with tiny unmarked graves shatters the peace of Exton, a small town in upstate N.Y.

More horrifying is the forensic analysis that reveals that these young children died needlessly as the result of neglect and abuse at the hands of a religious fundamentalist cult that disavows medical care.

Evangelicals and their political action groups come to the defense of the cult and the parents of the dead children setting the stage for the final courtroom clash to come.

The sheriff, an investigative reporter, the local coroner and two forensic experts from Albany develop the case. When the county DA, a fundamentalist, resists vigorous prosecution, the Governor of New York intervenes and appoints Rosemary and Calvin Brandt to represent the State and speak for the dead children. These controversial attorneys and former fundamentalists have devoted their lives to the protection of children.

Evangelicals, through their political action groups, come to the defense of the Cult and the parents of the dead children, setting the stage for the final courtroom clash between freedom of religion and the State’s responsibility to protect innocent children.

Make Him Room

With a bite-sized reflection and a handful of discussion questions, this devotional will work for the family around the dinner table or for your personal time alone with God.

Bloody Zion

Bloody Zion

by Edward Hendrie

Jesus told Pontius Pilate: “My kingdom is not of this world.” John 18:36. God has a spiritual Zion that is in a heavenly Jerusalem. Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 21:10. Jesus Christ is the chief corner stone laid by God in Zion. 1 Peter 2:6. Those who believe in Jesus Christ are living stones in the spiritual house of God. 1 Peter 2:5; Ephesians 2:20-22. Believers are in Jesus and Jesus is in believers. John 14:20; 17:20-23. All who are elected by God to believe in Jesus Christ are part of the heavenly Zion, without regard to whether they are Jews or Gentiles. Romans 10:12.

Satan is a great adversary of God, who has created his own mystery religions. During the Babylonian captivity (2 Chronicles 36:20), an occult society of Jews replaced God’s commands with Satan’s Babylonian dogma. Their new religion became Judaism. Jesus explained the corruption of the Judaic religion: “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Mark 7:7. Jesus revealed the Satanic origin of Judaism when he stated: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.” John 8:44. Babylonian Judaism remains the religion of the Jews today.

Satan has infected many nominal “Christian” denominations with his Babylonian occultism, which has given rise to “Christian” Zionism. “Christian” Zionism advocates a counterfeit, earthly Zion, where fleshly Jews take primacy over the spiritual church of Jesus Christ. This book exposes “Christian” Zionism as a false gospel and subversive political movement that sustains Israel’s war against God and man.



Crickets and Dreams

Crickets and Dreams

by Linda Shelnutt

Guardians in the night, crickets sing to the heart about needs of the soul.

When they pause in silence, they’re listening for what to sing next… except when they’re cloaking location to avoid being eaten, stepped upon, or lifted into a tornado headed toward Oz.

As with birth, life, and death, dreams extend through forever, before and after Earthly existence. They don’t die until they get it right or are no longer needed…

Or so it is in the fantasy universes of the Books of Gem and Short Gems.

Crickets and Dreams is a literary Short Gem of light satire with Sci-Fi High Fantasy highlights based partly on biographical scenes.

As such, especially the fictionalized content is satire [Linda Shelnutt is NOT Jennifer O’Reilley!], but we’re casting the mood as light satire, light meaning the humor lifts the spirit rather than applying a cutting aura of disdain which sometimes permeates heavy satire. However, light doesn’t mean that it lacks poignancy, potency, pith, pathos, or sometimes the pathetic.

Though it is a stand alone title, this story was worked from chapters 13-15 in FULL MOON RISING, a novel in The Books of Gem. A list of those books, Short Gems, and other Shelnutt collections is included inside this Kindle offering.

The Short Gems [like Crickets and Dreams] have subtle alterations and a few internal photos which are not included in their longer book counterparts.

Due to this stand alone nature, these shorts can be read in addition to, as appetizers for, or instead of their full book companions.

Practical Crystal Gazing: Scrying for Beginners

Practical Crystal Gazing: Scrying for Beginners

by One Initiate

Practical Crystal Gazing: Scrying for Beginners

is a simple, down-to-earth method of learning to scry with stones, particularly quartz crystals. The author has 17 years of experience with her own method, and decided to write this pamphlet-sized volume in response to those who have asked about her method. Also, after reading several crystal gazing books that all emphasize the astral, she has decided to share what seems to be a unique, albeit intuitive, method with others. This method is based in the stones themselves. She is a practicing hermetic magician as well as a third-degree High Priestess in a traditional Wiccan coven. As is traditional among Wiccan covens, she has chosen to remain mostly anonymous. However, for further information on crystal gazing or magick, she can be reached at [email protected] ***This method requires stones or some physical object other than just water.***



Organic Worship

Organic Worship

by Jon Spellman

As followers of Jesus, our focus should be on becoming “true worshippers” and then allow our actions of worship to flow organically from there. New Testament worship (proskuneo) is a positional descriptor more than a behavioral one and as such, our goal should be to become people who worship God because we are worshippers rather than people who just occasionally worship.

Anchored in the transparent conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well, Organic Worship explores the ramifications of becoming “true worshippers” and the implications for our lives.

A Way In A Manger

by Amy Brady

A Way in a Manger ~ A 32-Day Christmas Devotional: Christmas isn’t exactly the joyful season that it use to be. It’s hectic, rushed, expensive, exhausting and anything but peaceful. We are told in Isaiah 9:6 that Jesus would be Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace. But what does that signify today and how can it impact our Christmas season? Amy shares its significance and how it was meant to impact not only the meaning of Christmas but the meaning of life as well.

I had a great job, wife and friends. Yet I was suffused with discontentment; and for me the American dream, rather than liberating me, was suffocating. The answer was not in visiting a therapist, changing my job or wife, visiting a Himalayan cave, or circumnavigating the globe. It was in a powerful inner journey, and exploration of my relationship with God. It was an adventure in revisiting the pains and pleasures of childhood, understanding how these influenced my understanding of God; moving closer to the Great Spirit, and finally calling on his limitless power in my life. Everything in the pages that follow is true. This is not a religious book, as the God I refer to is simply my understanding of a higher power – it need not be yours. You might call him God, Buddha Allah, or whatever you so wish. This book is written to help you get closer to him. I ask only that you keep an open mind. Stay and laugh and reminisce with me over my childhood, then join me in the challenging exploration of my defects of character – those roadblocks to serenity and joy. I cannot promise you that this book will make you a saint, but I can promise that if you follow the suggestions contained within that your life will change. Let us begin this exciting journey together.

Uncovering the Pattern - God's Way of Unity for Disciples Today

Uncovering the Pattern – God’s Way of Unity for Disciples Today

by Keith Dorricott

In this concise e-booklet, bible teacher Keith Dorricott surveys 2,000 years of Christianity and explains how the important pattern that was set out in the New Testament in the early church as to how God wanted to be served, was gradually lost over the succeeding centuries. He goes on to discuss how the truth was gradually recovered through the Reformation and the emergence of the Brethren movement, culminating in the re-establishment of Churches of God.



Danny's Story

Danny’s Story

by William Kenning

Pastor Bill has been sharing his stories of love, pain, tragedy, redemption and, God’s unending love for longer than most of us have been alive.

Here he shares Danny’s Story, an inspirational story about a broken family brought back together at their lowest hour. This family, wracked by suicide, drugs, alcohol and too many untimely deaths is left with only their faith in each other and the support and prayers of a small but powerful group of congregants.

Pastor Bill mentors Danny, a young man whose shattered childhood left an emptiness inside him that he sadly filled with drugs and alcohol. Pastor Bill attempts to show Danny that God’s love is greater than any chemical, and that the bond of familial love is stronger than time and distance. Danny moves in with his baby sister, Beth, and her sweet baby girl, Michelle, after Beth’s husband dies in a tragic accident. Together they fight to rebuild their family.



Palmistry Secrets: The Mounts and Major Lines (Learn Palmistry and Hand Analysis)

Palmistry Secrets: The Mounts and Major Lines (Learn Palmistry and Hand Analysis)

by Cheira

Are you curious about the art of palmistry? Would you like to be able to read your friends’ hands for them? Maybe you have even considered becoming a professional palm reader. Whatever your reason for wishing to learn, palm reading is a wonderful skill to have. This Kindle ebook, “Palmistry Secrets: The Mounts and Major Lines,” is the second in the series “Learn Palmistry and Hand Analysis,” which is based upon a successful course in palmistry and hand analysis founded in 1994.

This series sets out to be a complete palm reading guide, right through from beginner stage to professional. The purpose of the first ebook in the series – “The Geography of the Hand” – is to guide your way around the hand in preparation for learning its secrets. With “Palmistry Secrets: The Mounts and Major Lines” you are embarking on the study of palm reading and hand analysis in depth.

Palms and hands have been studied for countless years – no one is really sure how far back the practice goes. Where modern palm reading or hand analysis diverges from the older version is in the fortune-telling aspect. The ancients saw the lines and marks on the palm as mysterious signs of some pre-ordained destiny. Today they are more often regarded as a kind of print-out of the brain. Modern palmistry takes the approach that what is in your hands you already subconsciously know. The hand reader or palmist is an interpreter of this for your conscious mind, rather than being a psychic medium.

With an image accompanying each piece of explanatory text, this ebook makes it easy to understand and memorise the significance of the mounts and the major lines – Life Line, Head Line, Heart Line, Fate Line and Sun Line. It also shows you the various formations of each that you are likely to meet and throws light on their meaning.

The different features of the hand – the mounts, major and minor lines, special marks and fingers – cannot be studied in isolation from one another. It is in comparing and contrasting these, as well as considering each pair of hands as a whole, that the true art of palm reading is to be found. With “Palmistry Secrets: The Mounts and Major Lines,” you truly begin to learn the life-affirming and extremely valuable skill of whole hand reading.

Just Jesus: The Evidence of History

Just Jesus: The Evidence of History

by James (Tommy) South

Few people are able to ignore Jesus. He has devotees and detractors, but hardly anyone is neutral about him. But how much do we know about him? Whether we love him or loathe him, it only makes sense that we know what and whom we’re talking about. Just Jesus is about what we can know about Jesus. Jesus isn’t just a religious idea but a phenomenon of history. That means we can and should ask about him all of the historical questions we can think of and see which ones can and can’t be answered. Fortunately, we’re able to learn a lot more about Jesus than most people think.



Know Thyself. (Self-inquiry.)

Know Thyself. (Self-inquiry.)

by P.V.S. Suryanarayana Raju

Humanity is in dark state of Self-ignorance.Ego is a product of this Self-ignorant dark state and the god,religion,poetry,art,painting it creates are all outcome of this darkness.The culture of human society,its education,family system,beliefs,dogmas all add to this metaphysical sleep and keeps the human in darkness causing lot of misery to him.Because ego state is a dark state we have to bring in light of “awareness” to know how the the ego is working and causing suffering to humanity.For this self-inquiry is the direct method and this book deals with that study of self.self-inquiry demands psychological energy. But the energy is destroyed, is wasted when one is in conflict.So when there is the understanding of the whole process of conflict, there is the ending of conflict, there is abundance of energy. Then you can proceed, tearing down the house that you have built throughout the centuries and that has no meaning at all.You know, to destroy is to create.



The True Gospel Message

The True Gospel Message

by Bonnie Lord

There are many “gospel” messages being circulated today.  I want to tell you  the TRUE gospel message.  In some circles one would believe that if we simply say “I accept Jesus into my heart,” we are saved.  This is “gospel lite.” They do not teach the whole gospel.  And, it is critical to know the difference because many people who believe they are saved are not.  They have been given a false gospel and are still on their way to hell.

Do you know the TRUE gospel? I’ve written this booklet to help you discover the truth about this very important thing which has eternal consequences.

Double Standards and the Commercialization of Christ

Double Standards and the Commercialization of Christ

by Sheri Combs Lantz

Does the Commercialization of Christ and the Double Standards we have allowed to invade our communities benefit our children and society today? Are they any closer to realizing their potential or our own, by engaging in these so called “Happy Holiday” events? Presents should be given without expecting anything in return. What if you cannot afford to buy the latest and greatest X-Box, WII or Nintendo game? What if you had to take a trip to the zoo instead of Hawaii, will this satisfy them? Is it possible that while we try to meet their desires, instead their needs we are leaving them with a void? Do we really believe there is value in making Santa Claus seem like a benevolent provider of presents that these are gifts? What happens when these same children are left without a “Plumb-line”? What happens if we have run out of money funding their wants, as opposed to their needs, and there nothing left to give them, what will we see? Will Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy show up when you have a need, or for that matter will they? These questions and more need to be answered, but how can we expect an answer when God the Creator manifest in Christ has been removed from the equation? Does our incessant need for consumerism and the commercialization of Christ represent what should be good and valuable gifts for our children, friends, family and those we love during this so called “Happy Holiday” season, or are these presents empty vessels that leave a void? Only you individually and not collectively can answer that question.

In the Shadows: Finding God on our Darkest Days

In the Shadows: Finding God on our Darkest Days

by Elizabeth D. Gray

Too often, we meet our trials with a heavy heart, human nature bidding us to retreat into fear and apprehension. Yet, if we can find within ourselves the ability to expand our awareness, we might see that each great test is another opportunity to move ourselves closer to God. And though it seems impossible, our greatest challenges are gifts, waiting to be transformed by faith into blessings.

In the Shadows

In the grayest time
When sorrow has me bent
My bones with nothing more to give
Even there in the shadows
You find me
And in that place
The harshest ills of the world upon me
You need not lift me up
For your presence is
My drink of mercy
As you cry with me
My eternal and most loyal friend

Red Alert America, Sound the Alarm!

Red Alert America, Sound the Alarm!

by Deborah Nazemi

RED ALERT AMERICA, Sound the Alarm! offers insight and solutions for Christians in a nation that is in crisis. Filled with prophetic truth, scripture, and quotes from the Founding Fathers, RED ALERT AMERICA, Sound the Alarm! encourages the reader to shift their perspective from one of fear to one of hope for a changed future.

ENDORSEMENT BY Sid Roth, host of It’s Supernatural! Television “Shocking, but true is Deborah Nazemi’s prophetic book, RED ALERT AMERICA, Sound the Alarm!. A must-read for every Christian.”

BACK COVER TEXT
America is on Red Alert; naturally, politically, and spiritually. We have reached a critical point. If we don’t do something very quickly, we will see further devastation through increased terrorism, natural disasters beyond our comprehension, and government takeover that could rival Hitler’s regime.

RED ALERT AMERICA, Sound the Alarm! takes a look at our situation through prophetic and historic eyes, and gives hope and insight for us all. Have we had enough? Are we ready to go through the painful process of self-reflection and heart-change that will trigger reformation for the church and bring new hope for the future? If we will come away from our ‘ME’ mentality, throw ourselves on His mercy, and allow Him to transform us; we, in unity, will finally come into our God-given destiny and possess the land, one heart at a time.

Says Deborah, “Only deep soul searching and true heart-change will revive us and bring the outward change we are seeking. Our transformation will lead to reformation, which will overflow to impact the world around us, bringing real hope and lasting change.”

7 Reading Practice Tests for the SSAT Middle

7 Reading Practice Tests for the SSAT Middle

by Test Masters

7 READING PRACTICE TESTS FOR THE SSAT MIDDLE

Word Count: 29,500

If you liked this study guide, please check out “7 VERBAL Practice Tests for the SSAT Middle“.

Note to Parents: The test formerly known as the “SSAT LOWER” is now called the “SSAT MIDDLE”

This Kindle eBook only contains SSAT Middle Level READING selections and questions. The actual SSAT Middle Level contains Math, Verbal and Writing sections as well, but this eBook does NOT cover those sections.

This Kindle eBook is intended for use by current FIFTH, SIXTH and SEVENTH graders applying for private schools that require the SSAT Middle.

SSAT Middle Level readings (40 Questions – 40 Minutes) include narratives (excerpts from novels / short stories / poetry) and essays. Passages are also drawn from humanities (arts / biographies / poetry), social science (history / economics / sociology) and science (medicine / astronomy / zoology).

The four main types of Reading questions are:
– Identifying the Main Idea ( Author’s Purpose / Best Title )
– Locating Details
– Drawing Inferences
– Identifying Tone or Mood

In our experience, SSAT Middle Level reading selections and questions are comparable to junior high school and sometimes high school level standardized reading tests. Therefore, students should take their time at first and always look back to the passage for answers. With adequate practice, all students can become proficient at answering the main types of SSAT reading questions.

What is the purpose of these 7 SSAT Middle Level READING Practice Tests?

A pervasive characteristic of SSAT private school admission exams is that they are very difficult, oftentimes featuring test questions one to four grade levels above your child’s current public or private school curriculum. The SSAT targets a small, highly competitive group of students applying for top private schools across the nation.

Using our years of experience developing training guides for a national test preparation company, we’ve created SSAT study materials that closely approximate the sequence, scope, phrasing and difficulty level of actual exams. We’ve accomplished this through years of meticulous research into individual SSAT test questions and through information acquired from former test participants.

The practice tests, used at schools and tutorial centers, show you how to compute your child’s Raw Score and identify its corresponding Scaled Score which can be compared (if available) to the average SSAT scaled score ranges of students admitted to a top private school near you. Thousands of applicants have worked through the 280 SSAT Middle Level Reading practice problems contained within this Kindle eBook to enhance their candidacies in the private school admission process.

How do I use this Kindle eBook?

Administer the practice tests to your child, keeping in mind the time constraints for each section. Students are PENALIZED one-fourth point for each incorrect response. Therefore, on an actual SSAT exam, all unsolvable questions should be skipped. Wild guessing is arguably the greatest contributor to low scores.

Some parents choose not to time their child at first. Instead, they allow for an adjustment period to become accustomed to the style and difficulty level of the Reading selections and questions. Have your child attempt all unfinished problems. The parent or tutor should review all incorrect responses with the child.

Use the Answer Keys at the beginning of this eBook to record the number of correct / wrong responses for each section. This eBook shows you how to compute your child’s Raw Score and then identify the corresponding Scaled Score. To help parents gauge their child’s standing, some top private schools provide average scaled score ranges for students admitted for the previous school year.



Key In To Social Studies - Study Resources and Lesson Plans

Key In To Social Studies – Study Resources and Lesson Plans

by Laurie J. Wilson

History and geography provide a student with much more than where and how people lived, it gives them a sense of where they came from and where they can go with the benefit of that knowledge. Social Studies and all it includes teaches more than where in the frontier Daniel Boone settled, when Mozart composed the first or last of his musical legacy, and how Anne Frank survived…and then didn’t. It tells their story.

Key In To Social Studies provides study and lesson plans as well as a listing of many wonderful history and geography books and resources to help in providing your student with a foundation in these important subjects.



Rage against the Indie

Rage against the Indie

by Stella Deleuze

Since I got my Kindle I have downloaded roughly 100 books–I’m a slow reader–which resulted in a deleting marathon.
Those who have been following my blog, know that I hold a Ph.D. in ranting. Be it about self-published authors and their behaviour in social media, or the mediocre to non-existent quality of self-published books. Not all of them, but certainly the ones I’ve deleted.
To help lift the overall quality, I decided to do what I do best: write a lengthy rant about my observations and experiences, followed by suggestions on how to make it better, and a few additional tips and tricks. Beware: it’s not for the faint-hearted.
Whether you are a suffering reader or a self-published author, I hope you’ll get a giggle and some useful advice, or maybe even both from this book.

This book is a 25k-word ‘educational rant’; divided in two: 1. the rant 2. the editing advice.

Other books by Stella Deleuze:
Excuse me, where is the exit? a collection of humorous rants about everyday life.
5-Minute Tea Break Stories, 13 short stories in various genres
No Wings Attached and Candlelight Sinner, paranormal romance in chick lit style. Suitable for those who normally don’t read paranormal novels.

Why I Hate It Here: Life in NW Montana

Why I Hate It Here: Life in NW Montana

by Lucy Waymire

I started writing this as a way to relieve frustration near the end of our long winter, but as I wrote I thought about the people I come into contact with that moved here with expectations that didn’t materialize. Some toughed it out, some moved away. I’m not sure which was the better option. Do I admire someone for toughing it out when they’d be happier somewhere else? I don’t know. But are they quitters for leaving?

For anyone considering moving to Montana this might be interesting reading. The chapters include Climate, Gardening, Recreation, Economy, People, and a collection of misc. other things.

I’d like to stress that these comments and opinions are just MY comments and opinions, based on my experiences here, and how they relate to who I am, what I like, and what I hope(d) for.

Some of the people leaving reviews on this book are not happy that my book is “negative”. Look at the title… It’s called “Why I hate it here”. That is what you can expect to read about. There’s no punch line. There’s no section on what I like about living here. Please…think about that before you buy, and if you do buy, consider the quality of my writing, not just whether you agree with the subject matter. This book is my opinions and my feelings. I don’t speak for anyone else.

I think the book is well written, and it was enjoyed by many family, friends, and neighbors before I published it. They know me as a fun-loving person, not a whiner, and were able to read it in the right perspective. Yes, I very much dislike (HATE!!!) living here, and writing this book was a blast! I love my husband more than I hate living here, and he loves living here, so I won’t take that away from him.

Now… buy it and enjoy it, or please select something else to buy! Thank you!

August 2012: The sequel is now out! “What I Don’t Hate About Living Here: Life in NW Montana”. Available here on Amazon for Kindle.

The Perils of Pauline - Crafting the Female Voice in Genre Fiction

The Perils of Pauline – Crafting the Female Voice in Genre Fiction

by Robert W. Walker

The Perils of Pauliine breaks down what is truly at work in creating a Voice of the female lead character, be she a sleuth or a vampire slayer or medical examiner. What it takes to succeed is really about challenging oneself to step out of the comfort zone of writing about characters and people like oneself, to instead stretch toward characters that are your polar opposite – opposite color, culture, geography, and sex. For the male author, that means writing female characters well; for female writers just the opposite!

What it takes to create the complex magic writer’s weave when they truly challenge themselves to write to their opposite. To create historical worlds, future worlds, to create believable places that do not exist, and to create different time perods and locations. To take on historical figures or complete fictions and composites. It is all possible with the proven techniques and methods that put to work the tools that create visual imagery that feeds the readers’ minds. A how-to to die for from a proven professional author with fifty Kindle titles and forty published via New York publishing.

The Secrets Behind Our Christmas Traditions Revealed!

The Secrets Behind Our Christmas Traditions Revealed!

by Tim Gilroy

For many it just wouldn’t be Christmas without a decorated tree and the presents underneath it. But. . . where did that tradition come from and why do we do that?

Shopping during the holidays can make a joyful angel out of some people, while others may turn into a sour scrooge by the time they are done with their shopping. But. . . why do we give all these gifts anyway? What started this whole thing of gift-giving?

Some say it began with the three wise men giving gifts to the baby Jesus. But did you realize that there were more than just the three kings and the gifts were likely much more than little containers of gold, frankincense and myrrh?

Speaking of the birth of Jesus, what about that moving Star of Bethlehem!? How could a Star move to a place directly over a little town? A star as we know it could not do that! Remember that a star is basically a gigantic ball of burning gas like our own sun. It could not move that close to our planet without burning it up! The surprising answer will seem so obvious as you read about it in “The Secrets Behind Our Christmas Traditions Revealed”.

Christmas carols are a welcome tradition for millions of people. However, they didn’t become a true part of our modern holiday until the early part of the nineteenth century when it began with one significant event you’ll learn about within the pages of this wonderfully written book.

There is a reason behind every American Christmas tradition we practice today and some of them may not be why you think! Throughout these pages, you will discover why certain Christmas traditions are performed every year and which part of the world they came from.

Archeofuturism: European Visions of the Post-Catastrophic Age

Archeofuturism: European Visions of the Post-Catastrophic Age

by Guillaume Faye

Archeofuturism, an important work in the tradition of the European New Right, is finally now available in English. Challenging many assumptions held by the Right, this book generated much debate when it was first published in French in 1998. Faye believes that the future of the Right requires a transcendence of the division between those who wish for a restoration of the traditions of the past, and those who are calling for new social and technological forms – creating a synthesis which will amplify the strengths and restrain the excesses of both: Archeofuturism.

Faye also provides a critique of the New Right; an analysis of the continuing damage being done by Western liberalism, political inertia, unrestrained immigration and ethnic self-hatred; and the need to abandon past positions and dare to face the realities of the present in order to realise the ideology of the future. He prophesises a series of catastrophes between 2010 and 2020, brought about by the unsustainability of the present world order, which he asserts will offer an opportunity to rebuild the West and put Archeofuturism into practice on a grand scale.

This book is a must-read for anyone concerned with the course that the Right must chart in order to deal with the increasing crises and challenges it will face in the coming decades.

Guillaume Faye was one of the principal members of the famed French New Right organisation GRECE in the 1970s and ’80s. After departing in 1986 due to his disagreement with its strategy, he had a successful career on French television and radio before returning to the stage of political philosophy as a powerful alternative voice with the publication of Archeofuturism. Since then he has continued to challenge the status quo within the Right in his writings, earning him both the admiration and disdain of his colleagues.

‘Archeofuturism is thus both archaic and futuristic, for it validates the primordiality of Homer’s epic values in the same breath that it advances the most daring contemporary science.’ –Michael O’Meara, from the Foreword



After a Disaster: What to Expect

After a Disaster: What to Expect

by Frances Robinson

After a disaster: what to expect tells stories (on a very personal level) of what people had to endure following Hurricane Katrina. Unless you’ve experienced a disaster you cannot begin to know how about emergency survival and what to expect.

As a Hurricane Betsy and Katrina survivor the author shares many perspectives on the aftermath of a major disaster. When almost every “system” in a city is destroyed almost overnight, emergency preparedness teams can be completely overwhelmed and inadequate.

Here is some of what you’ll learn:

– Why no one expects a disaster to happen to them.

– What you need to know in advance to stay in touch with family even when
communications are down.

– How to return and have housing before most people.

– What to expect immediately after a man made or natural disaster and for short and long-term recovery.

The mistakes of Hurricane Katrina taught valuable lessons about disaster relief. Let’s learn from “After a Disaster: What to Expect” and avoid unnecessary suffering in future disasters.

This book can help anyone who needs it now or future victims who need to understand the complexities of disaster survival, rescue and recovery.

The Convenient Christian

The Convenient Christian

by Julie Vermacelli

Explosive, trailblazing fiction, The Convenient Christian wades into the muddy waters of the political arena and explores some of the most controversial and gut-wrenching issues of our time. An epic battle between the far right and extreme left; where the gloves come off in a fist fight of ideological differences. The end result is a classic tale that drops you squarely into the shoes of each fighter, into the heated middle of the fray, and delivers a unique perspective from opposite ends of the political spectrum.

This is the story of mirror twin brothers, identical, yet opposite, a rare subset in twins. One brother is right-handed and the other is left-handed. One boy is outgoing while the other is painfully shy. Charlie Drummond is a gifted, natural athlete; while Eddie Drummond is merely average. Charlie graduates at the top of his class and is given an athletic scholarship to an Ivy League college. The two brothers have a bitter fight, just days before Charlie leaves for school. Eddie Drummond remains in Hibbing to work in the iron ore mines and to care for his mother. He doesn’t see his brother again for nearly twenty years.

Charlie returns to Hibbing when their mother passes away, but he isn’t Charlie any longer. He now goes by Charles and he’s made quite a name for himself as both an author and the host of a nationally syndicated, radio program. Five days a week, Charles touts the virtues of the conservative political movement. He’s married to Lilly Drummond, a supermodel, and together they have two children.

Eddie is worried about seeing his brother after so many years. He is married to July, a waitress, and they also have two children. The funeral seems to put an end to the bad blood between the two brothers. Soon, the two families are forming bonds and Charles confides that he and his family would like to spend the summer in Hibbing. They’ve grown tired of the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple and with Eddie’s blessings, he’d like to rent an office in town and broadcast his show from there. Despite his reservations, Eddie gives Charles his approval.

The fireworks begin as Charles starts taking shots at Eddie. What begins as carefully placed, backhanded comments, turns into an all-out assault on Eddie’s faith, his character, his political beliefs, his meager possessions, and even his wife and children. Too late, Eddie realizes that Charles is not the man he portrays himself to be; he’s a wicked, faithless man who believes the end justifies the means: a convenient Christian, a dangerous hypocrite of the highest order.

Hazardous Duty (Christian mystery) (Squeaky Clean Mysteries)

Hazardous Duty (Christian mystery) (Squeaky Clean Mysteries)

by Christy Barritt

Buying a gun to kill your wife: $3,000
Hiring Trauma Care to clean afterward: $1,500
Having that same cleaner uncover evidence that frames you: priceless

On her way to completing a degree in forensic science, Gabby St. Claire drops out of school and starts her own crime scene cleaning business. “Yeah, that’s me,” she says, “a crime scene cleaner. People waiting in line behind me who strike up conversations always regret it.”

When a routine cleaning job uncovers a murder weapon the police overlooked, she realizes that the wrong person is in jail. But the owner of the weapon is a powerful foe . . . and willing to do anything to keep Gabby quiet.

With the help of her new neighbor, Riley Thomas, a man whose life and faith fascinate her, Gabby plays the detective to make sure the right person is put behind bars. Can Riley help her before another murder occurs?

“Christy Barritt’s novel, Hazardous Duty, is a delightful read from beginning to end. The story’s fresh, engaging heroine with an unusual occupation hooked me, and I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend Hazardous Duty.”

â??Colleen Coble Author of Fire Dancer, book one of the Smoke Jumpers Series

Editorial Reviews
Captivating, entertaining, and downright funny, this book will keep you reading until the satisfying ending. Unique characters capture your heart and have you rooting for them from the beginning. Gabby St. Claire is truly a breath of fresh air. (Susan Sleeman The Christian Suspense Zone)

Christy Barritt created one lovable and unique character. Readers will fall in love with Gabby from page one with her laugh out loud scenes and sarcastic humor. This mystery was fun to read as well as to solve. Up until the very end, I wasn’t too sure who the real suspect was in the book. I’m not sure if Gabby St. Claire will morph into a book series, but I’m sure readers will want to meet her again at future crime cleaning scenes. (Tyora Moody Faithwebbin)

If you like murder mysteries and suspense with a chick-lit feel, you’ll want to read this one! (Michelle Sutton michellesutton.net)

“The next time you’re temped to watch CSI reruns, read this book instead! Spunky, sassy Gabby St. Claire sparkles in this new series. She’ll keep you turning the pages.” (Siri Mitchell Sporting the Faith Newsletter)

“In this witty novel, chick lit meets mystery in the show-tune singing Gabby, creating a fun whodunit where you just don’t know who killed the woman or which guy you like for the heroine. There’s the changeable Detective Parker or the sweet guy-next-door-with-a-secret Riley for Gabby, and who but the would-be Senator husband would want the murder victim dead? Hazardous Duty will take you on a ride through twists, turns, quirks, acorn brownies, and spiritual questions that keep Gabby guessing. She’s a character you’re guaranteed to love, and the plot is entertaining and fast paced.” (Roseanna White Christian Review of Books)

No Game for a Dame (Maggie Sullivan mysteries)

No Game for a Dame (Maggie Sullivan mysteries)

by M. Ruth Myers

I could use a dozen more mysteries with detective Maggie Sullivan on my reading table. She’s tough, gritty – and totally engaging.
Sandra Love, author of DIVE FOR THE SUN

Rich in the author’s knowledge of her chosen town and time (1930s), not to mention rich in clever plot twists. A great read.
Suzanne Clauser, screenwriter & author of A GIRL NAMED SOONER

Private eye Maggie Sullivan knows the streets of Depression-era Dayton, Ohio, as well as she knows an emery board. With a gin bottle in her desk, a .38 under her seat, and a great pair of legs she can hold her own against the toughest opponent.

Then a routine case makes her a murder suspect and the target of a crime boss who’s got friends at City Hall.

Moving through a landscape where people line up at soup kitchens, Maggie draws information from sources others overlook: The waitress at the dime store lunch counter where she has breakfast; a corner newsboy; a nightclub cigarette girl in the rooming house where she lives. She shifts to a war of wits when she wants something from her shutterbug pal on the evening paper or the new cop teamed with her late father’s partner.

Before Maggie finds all the answers she needs, she’s drugged and left in a ditch, has tea in the kitchen of a local cathouse and gambles her own life to save two others.

Eye of The Destroyer (A Jack Kilbourne Adventure)

Eye of The Destroyer (A Jack Kilbourne Adventure)

by Dan Hardy

Through a twist of fate, family man Jack Kilbourne finds that the only way to ensure his family’s safety is to become human bait for a killer desperate for one last game of one-upmanship as he pushes the world towards global devastation.

International crime boss Anton “Anarch” Vladic heads a dysfunctional crime family: An assassin girlfriend looking for more commitment and more power in his criminal organization versus Anton’s right hand man who will do anything to prevent that from happening. Anton just wants a break. He wants to reach out to someone that knew him when, someone he can brag to, especially now that he has hijacked control of a top secret weapons platform that can literally destroy the planet.

A hit team of CIA operatives and select Navy SEALs has been tasked with eliminating Anarch and recovering control of the weapons system at all costs . . . including Jack’s life.

Dan Hardy has known many people in the police, military, and intelligence professions and has tied some of their war stories into this tale. He comes from a long line of law enforcement officers. He survived multiple contracts by drug lords on his family, and was trained in officer survival, and that was before he hit high school.



Twig [Second Edition]

Twig [Second Edition]

by J. R. Wright

[Edited and Revised]
This is the story of Willow ‘Twig’ Olsen, a woman of scandinavian descent, who was trapped into an existance of traditional servitude for the first thirty eight years of her life, and what transpires after her last parent dies, and she is finally free to seek male companionship, as she has long desired. What happens thereafter is a whirlwind of unexpected events that lead to greed, deception, and eventually murder.

This book goes far above and significantly deeper than any simple romance…or many suspense thrillers. Readers will be compelled to discover each detail; to keep turning the pages.

This is a suspenseful thriller of beauty, tenderness, havoc, and calm, tossed together in chapters that electrify and stun.

This is one, approx. 300 page Novel, that ought to to be made into a movie. I see Charlize Theron as Willow Olsen and Brad Pitt as Lonnie Doolittle. One could even visualize George Clooney as J. Zachery Tyrone……….

Solomon's Keepers

Solomon’s Keepers

by J.H. Kavanagh

His mind sharing extraordinary sensations with subscribers makes him wonderful, groundbreaking entertainment; but the technology is a stolen military secret and now they want it back.

Book Description

The future is closer than you think.
Imagine the things you most wish you could do: the adventures, the encounters, the indulgences. Imagine someone who can do things the way you dream of doing them. Now imagine that person sending you those experiences, recreating them inside your mind so you live every sensation more vividly than anything in the rest of your life. No effort, no risk, no weight gain – just each and every moment, happening to you.

KomViva: Only losers live their own leisure.

A sensational new entertainment is taking the world by storm. At its heart is Solomon, a microchip implant that is a stolen military secret.
Rees is a young man with a past that is coming to light; the woman they’d forced him to leave has made a shocking discovery and is now on a quest that puts her, the military, and a media empire on collision course. At stake are a tycoon’s ambition, national security, and two young lives.
With time running out, Rees has one final shot at freedom and a crucial decision to make. But how do you save yourself when your mind isn’t entirely your own?
Solomon’s Keepers gives a close-up of the confrontation between technology and humanity – in one man’s mind and a whole society’s future.

Genre/Product description

Solomon’s Keepers will appeal to lovers of contemporary fiction and technothrillers strong on style and ideas. One reviewer suggested this category includes JG Ballard, William Gibson, Michael Crichton, Michael Marshall Smith, Douglas Coupland and Chuck Palahniuk. The author would be delighted to pass muster there.

About the author

J. H. Kavanagh studied Politics at university, taught English in Spain and went on to work with some of the world’s leading technology firms and as an independent consultant. Along the way he has rubbed shoulders with entrepreneurs, technical geniuses, spooks, hackers, and the odd billionaire, media mogul and five-star General. A wordsmith behind geek lines, he consults on marketing and writes contemporary fiction. Whenever possible, he escapes to the wild to fly peregrine falcons.



Thursday at Noon

Thursday at Noon

by William F. Brown

As “The New Yorker” said, Thursday at Noon is “a thriller in the purest cliffhanger vein. The technique is flawless. It could only have been learned in a thousand Saturday afternoon movie matinees.”

Cairo, 1962. Richard Thomson was already having a very bad day when someone left a corpse lying on the rear steps of his hotel. Its head had been lopped off like a ripe melon and had been posed so it could look back down at its own body. Thomson is a burned-out CIA Agent and the body belongs to Mahmoud Yussuf, a fat, petty thief who tried to sell him photographs of a long-abandoned RAF base in the Egyptian desert. What the photos have to do with a dead Israeli Mossad agent, Nazi rocket scientists, the fanatical Moslem Brotherhood, and two missing Egyptian tank regiments could start the next Arab-Israeli War or stop it.

Alone and on the run, no one believes Thomson’s answers — not the CIA, the US Ambassador, Colonel Ali Rashid of Egyptian State Security, and most assuredly not Captain Hassan Saleh, Chief of the Homicide Bureau of the Cairo Police, who wants to hang Thomson, preferably around the CIA’s neck . Under pressure from within and without, the slums of Cairo are a tinder box of discontent and the first faint whiffs of a military coup against the shaky, new government of Abdel Gamal Nasser are in the air. Thompson and the young daughter of one of the German rocket scientists have five action-packed days and nights to figure it out. Tick Toc, Tick Tock! Something is about to blow up in Thomson’s face at Noon on Thursday.

Like Night of the Generals, this is a murder mystery wrapped inside an international crisis. It is from the author of The Undertaker, with 21 Amazon Five Star! Reviews and Amongst My Enemies, now with 11. This is the e-book edition of his successful hardback, a Joan Kahn Book published by St. Martins and in paperback and foreign editions by Harlequin. In all, he has written 6 international thrillers and four award-winning screenplays.

Do you believe in evil? I mean the true evil that lurks in the shadows of our world. We hear of people committing devastating acts on television all the time, but of course we never think that could happen where we are. It could never happen to us or to anyone we care about. That sort of evil just does not exist in our little worlds, does it? But what if evil turned out to be a lot closer than you thought? What if it was your neighbor, your mailman, your child’s bus driver or school teacher? What if real, true evil turned out to be the love of your life?

That is what is happening to Laura Cooper. She is a single mother who has recently lost her husband to a vicious mugging. She and her fifteen year old daughter Amy have moved on remarkably well since then. Mother and daughter are enjoying their lives as they try to put the past behind them and live in peace in their nice West Virgnia town of Parkersburg. This is about to changeâ?¦

On the way back from a shopping trip to a nearby city, Laura and her daughter have a flat tire. They find themselves stranded by the side of the highway with a dead cell phone. That is until a charming stranger stops to rescue them. This is when they meet Mark. He is a handsome all American restaurant owner with chiseled good looks and soap opera charm. Laura finds herself entranced and beginning a whirlwind romance with the enticing stranger.

Meanwhile, a series of brutal murders is terrifying the suburban town of Parkersburg. Laura’s older brother Frank happens to be the lead detective on the case who has somehow found himself the target of a madman’s killer obsession. As the body count rises and the games become more twisted, the race to find the killer twists and turns to a terrifying conclusion that will rock the very foundation of this peaceful community and leave Laura questioning everything that she believes in as she realizes that sometimes the Devil is just as close as a lover’s kissâ?¦

Crooked Man (Tubby Dubonnet #1) (Tubby Dubonnet Mystery) (The Tubby Dubonnet Series)

Crooked Man (Tubby Dubonnet #1) (Tubby Dubonnet Mystery) (The Tubby Dubonnet Series)

by Tony Dunbar

The FIRST offbeat mystery in the TUBBY DUBONNET series, by ANTHONY- AND EDGAR-NOMINATED AUTHOR Tony Dunbar.

“a lighthearted, fast-moving, comic mystery … In this well-written, entertaining first novel, Tubby’s luncheon menus are as engaging as the plot.” -Library Journal

HARD-BOILED AND HILARIOUS AT THE SAME TIME, THIS IS THE BOOK THAT ASKS THE QUESTION: IF A GYM BAG OF CASH FELL INTO YOUR HANDS, WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO KEEP IT?

And it has another great quality: The food’s as much fun as the tightly-coiled plot.

A simple man with a refined palate, maverick New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet has a penchant for fishing, Old Fashioneds, off-track betting, and fighting evil while passing a good time.

His clients are all renegades from the asylum (aka Orleans Parish), including a transvestite entertainer, a buxom deadbeat blonde, a doctor who refers his own patients to a malpractice lawyer, and a Mardi Gras reveler who drives a float shaped like a giant crawfish pot. He also has his hands full with an ex-wife and three teenage daughters, who are experts in the art of wrapping Tubby around their little fingers. And somehow, between work and family, Tubby finds time to sample the highs and lows of idiosyncratic Crescent City cuisine, from trout meuniere amandine and French roast coffee with chicory to shrimp po-boys and homemade pecan pralines.

Tubby’s new client is Darryl Alvarez, the manager of a local nightclub who’s been caught unloading marijuana from a shrimp boat. At their first meeting, Darryl entrusts Tubby with an ordinary-looking blue gym bag. But after Darryl’s unfortunate demise, Tubby realizes he must tighten his grasp on the gym bag — and its million-dollar contents.

TUBBY JUST CAN’T GIVE UP THE CASH. BUT IF HE GETS CAUGHT, HE’LL BE IN JAIL. AND IF THE WRONG PEOPLE CATCH HIM, HE’LL WISH HE WAS.

“Tubby grapples with the temptation of riches and the threats of claimants, and, as he sorts out the rogues among the buttoned-downs, he dispatches the villain and finds a home for the cash in a conclusion that’s as cleverly convoluted and amusing as the rest of this tale, the first in a…series.” -Publishers Weekly

New Orleans-based attorney and writer Tony Dunbar is the Lillian Smith Book Award-winning author of books about Mississippi, Appalachia, migrant workers, and the Southern labor movement as well as the acclaimed Tubby Dubonnet mystery series.

by Sandy Loyd

Michelle Matthews has decided to quit running from her past and meet it head on. Yet, nothing goes as planned after Shelly drives three hundred miles to meet her ex-best friend so she can forgive and move on with her life. Instead, Kiera collapses in her arms after making a puzzling statement. Shelly then survives two near fatal misses that are too coincidental to be accidents. After a third incident, where she dodges a couple of bullets aimed at her, the madness escalates. Wondering why she suddenly has an X on her forehead, Shelly has no choice but to run again. Only this time she’s running with Jacob Collier, the man she originally left behind and the last person she intended to see.

Jake Collier has too much to worry over than to be concerned with Michelle Matthews’ concerns. Women are dying of drug overdoses, Kiera, his ex-wife, included. As the lead DEA agent on the case, it’s up to him to investigate rumors of a sex slave/drug operation that’s floating around after a website advertising the ultimate night of pleasure in graphic display is discovered. Jake believes the attempts on Michelle’s life are somehow related to his current case and whether Michelle wants his help or not, she’s stuck with him.

Unfortunately, even after six years, the attraction still sizzles and is ready to explode into passion at the slightest provocation. Jake fights to keep his lust in check while working to solve the mystery and keep Michelle safe.

When another fiery attempt sends the two into deeper cover, hurtful truths about their pasts come out. Neither is guilt free. At this point, both Shelly and Jake wonder the same thing. Even if they do survive, can they find enough forgiveness in their hearts in order to love again?

With no choice, Slade joins Nika on her treasure hunt, hoping to buy his friends’ freedom with a trunk-full of ancient gold.

Heaven Help Us

Heaven Help Us

by Jo Macleod

In the early years at the turn of the twentieth century, a young boy and his foster sister died. Their souls did not pass into Heaven, however, and the two young spirits waited patiently for their mother to come to them. Even though Rosemary Sullivan-McGinty couldn’t see her dead son and foster daughter, her mother’s intuition convinced her that they were still close by. She pined day in and day out for her lost children and she refused to leave the farmhouse.

Rosemary died in 1940 and was horrified to find the children had not crossed over. They were still in the old farmhouse.

Now, one hundred years after the children died, their story is being told. Rosemary found a way, and through her beyond-the-grave collaboration with Sophie, the children were rescued. This is the story of a mother’s undying love for her children – and how she reached from beyond the grave to help them find their way back to her on the other side.
Author Jo Macleod has shaped this fictional tale around her own life experiences.
This is their story, based on the true events of their spirit rescue.

It’s April 1995 and, after thirty years of bloody strife, change is in the air on the troubled island of Ireland with the movement for peace beginning to gather pace. Living in the beautiful county of Mayo, Harry Ballantine has finally put the life he had always dreamed of together. He has found love with his soul mate, Freya Andreassen, makes a good living running his Adventure Centre in the Delphi Valley and he spends much of his spare time hunting with his Peregrine falcons. But the past has a way of catching up with all men and it suddenly explodes back into Harry’s life again, twenty years after he thought it had gone forever.
Three men break into his home and take Freya as a hostage. They have an offer for their old IRA comrade– the sort that cannot be refused if his love and he are to survive. They want him to commit a foul act of murder that has the potential to fatally derail the burgeoning peace process. It forces Harry to revisit his awful past where he had been a different entity— Jallad, the finest Libyan trained assassin the movement had ever seen.

And Jallad has another meaning for Harry Ballantine. It was the name of the first Peregrine falcon he had ever seen during his time in the desert of Cyrenaica. The hawk, like him, had been the fiercest of assassins but, in her own strange way, she had also begun his rehabilitation and his humanisation.

Blackheath (An Elathien Solo Mystery)

When an invisible killer is unleashed within the refuge, the brash investigator Elathien Solo must contend with indifferent authorities, a spurned lover, and a young patient’s terrible secret as she searches for the truth.

And even as a dark conspiracy of murder and madness unfolds around her, Elathien is forced to cope with the still-raw scars of the time she herself spent as a patient within Blackheath’s wallsâ?¦

FOR MATURE READERS
——————————–

EXCERPT

Elathien was forced to take a step back as Nerani turned on her suddenly. A dark strength had worked its way through the girl, giving her the tone and disposition of a different person. The thought set Elathien on edge as she called up the cantrip of detection, the incantation barely a whisper.

“She knew all their names,” Nerani hissed, pushing closer. “She knew what they did, what they needed, how they lied. She wouldn’t have told, but their fear blinded them. Made them not believe her. So I felt how long it took her to fall. How her legs broke, her spine shattered when she struck the ground. I felt her bleed to death in the darkâ?¦”

There was no magic in her. No sign of the possession or enchantment that Elathien would have sworn she was seeing, no sign of Nerani’s thoughts or actions controlled by some outside force. With a sharp cry of pain, the girl pushed past her, stumbling toward the laboratory door.

Which was open now, Elathien saw.

The white light from the corridor beyond pushed up against the pale glow of Elathien’s spell-light, shimmering along a boundary like oil and water settling slowly against each other.

The door had been closed when Nerani stepped away from it. A thousand things could have explained it opening, from the most minor incantation to a loose latch and a breath of air from the corridor beyond. Elathien felt a chill twist through her all the same, rising from the base of her spine as Nerani turned to her.

“They killed Irandis,” the girl said. “You wanted to know.”

“What?” Elathien’s voice caught as she spoke. “I wanted to know what?”

“You wanted to know why I came here. To Blackheath.”

Nerani’s steps were steady as she made her way down the corridor, bare feet silent on the stone floorâ?¦

The Immortal Breath of Life (An Egyptian Adventure) All New Extended Version

The Immortal Breath of Life (An Egyptian Adventure) All New Extended Version

by Mark Edward Hall

1939, deep in the heart of the Egyptian desert, archeologist Winston Smith has made the discovery of a lifetime. An old kingdom mastaba tomb. But Smith suspects, from the markings on the door, that this tomb contains relics from the period of the new kingdom, the eighteenth dynasty. So begins an adventure that takes Smith deep beneath the Egyptian desert, while on the surface a storm is kicking up and a child is about to be born. As each adventure unfolds simultaneously and at breakneck speed the reader is taken along on a dizzying thrill ride of wonders and horrors, while elsewhere the architects of the future are making plans for an important arrival.
The Breath of Life is a fun, fast paced thriller steeped heavily in the tradition of the legendary pulp novels of the early twentieth century.

Dear Reader. I have listened to you and have acted on your wishes. I originally published The Immortal Breath of Life as a ten thousand word story. Surprisingly it became somewhat of a sensation (especially in the U.K.) I wish to thank all my U.K. readers for that. A lot of the feedback I received was dissatisfaction over the length of the story rather than the content of story. You wanted it to be longer, so here it is extended to a 35,000 word novella. I hope you enjoy it and further hope you will let me know if the story length and plot changes are to your liking.
As an extra bonus, I have added the first five chapters of my upcoming novel, Soul Thief. Enjoy!
Thank you again.
Mark Edward Hall

During their captivity, the nomads contend that a group of American soldiers unearthed a precious treasure from the sands of the Syrian Desert, killed several of their members, and stole their discovered riches from its rightful owners.
On her return to the States, Andrea tries to follow the faint trail of the thieves and their loot, but is stonewalled by the State Department, Pentagon, administration and military. With all avenues of inquiry seemingly exhausted, she is ordered to drop her artifact quest by her boss and corporate adversary, V.P. Rand Duncan. Frustrated by Duncan’s decision, Andrea commits the cardinal sin of broadcasting and is fired from the network. When she is joined in her investigation by friend and associate, gay bodybuilder Sammy Simkowski, the freelance reporters are harassed by international art thieves, threatened by Mafia hit men, attacked by Arab terrorists, and encumbered by General Clyde G. Callaghan, commander of the army battalion in which the thieves purportedly served.
As Andrea pursues her investigation, she is diagnosed with a terminal illness. She encounters Hannah Ogie, a mysterious ‘Preacher Lady,’ who urges the rejection of traditional religions for direct communication with God, and is an eyewitness to the assassination of the unorthodox evangelist.
After a harrowing chase and deadly gun battle between competing adversaries intent on seizing the treasure, Andrea and Sammy finally locate the artifact, experiences a miraculous recovery from her disease, and learns that the ancient amphora contains not the priceless items originally assumed, but a single object that threatens to alter the interpretation of the most important period in the history of mankind–and possibly its future.

Secrets Hidden by Military Duty (Vol1)

Secrets Hidden by Military Duty (Vol1)

by Paul Krokus Jr

A story of a Delta Force trained soldier gets out of the Army, moves back to his home state of Wyoming. He is educated with a Masters Degree in Architectural Engineering where he designs buildings, bridges, houses, golf courses and much more. Although being an architectural engineer provides a sense of accomplishment it doesn’t provide the adrenaline rush he got so used to doing black ops with his Delta Force team. Being an expert in demolitions, marksmanship, and killing among other things he finds a new way to regain the adrenaline rush he once acquired doing his daily job. With fifteen years of service in the military he doesn’t want to throw away his chance to get a military pension, so he joins with a local Army Reserve Unit in Wyoming.
Even though he was still part of a military group the maneuvers once a month and two weeks every year didn’t provide what he so longed for. Being a husband and a father of two he had to be discreet in what he chose to reinvigorate him with adrenaline. Did he turn to visiting hookers at truck stop motels? No. Did he turn to having an affair with the pretty, young, newly married, stay at home wife down the street? No. Did he turn to using illicit drugs like cocaine, heroine or ecstasy? No. What he turns to get that adrenaline high he so craves is so much more dangerous. Murder.
Sitting on lonely, quiet dimly lit back roads waiting on his unsuspecting prey to come along his veins coursed with the throbbing of the adrenaline. Raising the hood of an old car he keeps in a storage locker and waits for the unsuspecting female to stop to render assistance. His training as a special ops soldier taught him how to be careful not to leave traces of evidence, be stealthy, and efficient. Although the training he was provided with wasn’t intended to be utilized in psychopathic ways. All it takes is the smallest of mistakes to leave behind a trace of DNA with a hair, a drop of blood, or any number of incidental scrapes of skin under a victims finger nails. Will this highly trained, finely tuned, smooth running machine of a soldier make a mistake that will lead to his downfall? Well, I guess we’ll have to follow the story through his travels as an architect, a father, his deployments with the military and all his other travels to find out who will put the pieces together first.
Please don’t quickly dismiss my query because of the Southern verbage I used. I’m from the South and I used that verbage to make the book appear more realistic.



Strictly Analog

Strictly Analog

by Richard Levesque

Ted Lomax does his best to get by as a private detective in a society where almost nothing is private any more. He lives in a near-future California that has gained independence from the economically collapsed United States and where everyone is constantly linked into the web. Almost everyone. Because of injuries sustained during California’s border war, Ted is locked out of the technological culture that surrounds him. But that’s his edge: his business card reads “Strictly Analog,” and he markets himself as a man able to skirt the technological landscape without leaving a trail. It works nicely for him until he gets the most important case of his life. When his daughter Amy is accused of killing her boyfriend, Ted knows he has to do whatever he can to help her. It won’t be easy. The bullet in the boyfriend’s head matches Amy’s gun. To make matters worse, the dead boyfriend was an agent with California’s secret police. Now Ted has to dig himself out of the hole he’s been buried in since the war. Before long, he’s pulled into a shadow world of underground hackers, high-end programmers, and renegade gear-heads, all of whom seem to have a stake in California’s future. The further he digs into the case, the clearer it becomes that it’s about more than one dead agent. Solving it might save his daughter. And it might get him killed. And it just might open the door to secrets that reach back to the attack that almost killed him eighteen years before. At any rate, Ted Lomax will never be the same.

The Shepherd Chronicles Part I: Books I through V of The Shepherd Chronicles (Volume 1)

by Aaron Vincent

Nestled between the Cascade Mountains and the Pacific Ocean in the forty-second of the United States of America, Washington, are the two small cities of Centralia and Chehalis in the county of Lewis. Less than twenty-five thousand people live in these two small hamlets, a full third of the entire
population of Lewis County, with nearly ninety percent of the people being white.


In tough times people often turn to any distraction available to forget about the rest of the world. Lewis County soon earned the dubious title of being the mecca for methamphetamine use and production in Washington State. And the drugs beget other crimes, new criminals, and eventually gangs.

Ansell Pembleton was just an average nobody in a small town until the night his brother was attacked. He had no reason to hate, mistrust, or even look down upon anyone else. He was an intelligent and educated young man who looked ever forward to a brighter future and judged each man or woman by his or her own actions. Unfortunately for Ansell the world doesn’t always play fair.

When the police failed to find any leads in his brother’s case something inside Ansell changed. He discovered that hiding within plain and simple Ansell was The Shepherd, a man destined to become a superhero.

“The Shepherd Chronicles Part I” tells the tale of Ansell Pembleton’s metamorphosis from a video game playing slacker to real life superhero. During his journey Ansell discovers things about himself, and about The Shepherd, that he never imagined. He also makes powerful enemies and powerful allies. And he finds himself faced with the greatest question any superhero will be asked: what price is he willing to pay to secure the safety of his friends, family, and city?

“The Shepherd Chronicles Part I” is a collection of a series of short stories that tell Ansell’s tale.

The Death Tax Murder Mystery (The Empire State Murder Mystery Series)

The Death Tax Murder Mystery (The Empire State Murder Mystery Series)

by James Massaro

It’s snowy December in New York and closing in on Christmas.

Teresa is a seventeen year old girl in Quogue, Long Island, who was just in a car accident, now in a coma. Some time has already slipped by and there’s a girl in the city who needs a heart, but Teresa’s guardian, her grandmother Eileen, isn’t letting her go, and has the means to keep her on support for as long as she wants.

While Eileen is away for the weekend, Teresa passes away, and the doctor administering to her, authorizes the harvesting of her organs, her heart specifically, to give to the girl in the city. Upon returning, Eileen is irate! She thinks it’s a conspiracy, especially since the doctor works at the same hospital in New York City as the girl who needed the transplant.

She hires William Parkland and Catherine Huntington, the attorneys from The Montauk Murder Mystery and The Manhattan Murder Mystery.

Five people had access to Eileen’s mansion. A soft-spoken Indian doctor who knows how scarce and valuable organs are, and who gives William and Catherine their first lead in the case. A Jamaican nurse who believes in reincarnation and who has a wish to come back as something out of the ordinary, and who Eileen was on the verge of firing. Teresa’s best friend Claire who has a secret about her and Teresa, and insight into Teresa’s thought process. One of Eileen’s spiteful friends who believes in the Almighty dollar, and who had a falling out with her over a business deal. And an old theologian who has read and reread Plato and shares insight into some of the most widely talked about issues concerning religion, and who’s at odds with Eileen over a subjective matter.

William and Catherine have to go speak to all five them, hearing their views on life and dying, and if they had any insight into Teresa’s wishes, and would they’ve crossed that line?, knowing the consequences, from the standpoints of going to prison, losing their job, losing their family possibly, not honoring their friend’s wishes, and for those with a religious backbone, maybe damnation, or sacrificeâ??being testedâ??like Abraham, and would they have the reasoning to persuade William and Catherine to see it their way.

On the onset, William and Catherine are at odds; William believes that even if they find out who did it, if somebody did do it, to’ve just kept the girl on support, whether they knew her wishes or not, while this other girl needed the heart, wasn’t the way to go. But Catherine believes nobody had that right to make that decision, except Eileen. But being two open-minded people, they know things can change during the course of events as new information surfaces. Which does! Startling information!â??as to why Eileen might’ve kept Teresa on life-support to begin with! And it had nothing to do with hoping a miracle was going to take place and she’d come to!

William and Catherine weave through the reasoning and the beliefs and the motives of the suspects, and weigh all the evidence, and have a better understanding of how the minds of the one percent and their family and friends work. However, there’s only one hard clue that points in the right direction, and both of the high-priced Manhattan attorneys overlooked it! Only an individual with exceptional awareness and who had a bent for solving complex problems would’ve recognized it and made something of it, though.

Mainstream Mystery with religious, psychological, social and philosophical overtones, relating to abortion, the death penalty, euthanasia, criminal justice, indestructibility, and the death tax, among others.

Vampire Defense

Vampire Defense

by James D. Bell

John Brooks is a brilliant young lawyer working hard, but not getting much notice. Those who know him admire his work ethic and his intellect. His friends believe that he needs one big case to show off his talents. Defending Hal Boyd, known as the Butcher of Belhaven, on arson and four murder charges, looks like that big case as the world media, hungry to fill 24 hours a day of non-stop news coverage, converges on Jackson, Mississippi.

Soon the Boyd case looks like a career ender when Brooks announces his defense: “Not guilty by reason of insanity. My client was so insane that he believed that the person he intended to kill was a vampire.” The world media ridicules the “Vampire Defense,” and Brooks and his defense team become the laughing stock of the legal profession.

Ridicule becomes the least of Brooks’ problems when he discovers that a satanic cult is intent on exacting murderous revenge against Boyd and his defense team. Kidnapping and multiple murders occur at a dizzy pace as the action careens from the city to the swamp to the courtroom.

Romance coupled with comic relief allows you to occasionally catch your breath, until even that is stolen by a double climax with a verdict that shocks the world, followed immediately by a dramatic final battle between good and evil.

The Vampire Defense is so “bloody good” you can taste it.

James D. Bell is a retired Judge who received the highest bar association approval ratings ever given to a Mississippi Circuit or County Judge. He is listed in Preeminent Lawyers and Outstanding Lawyers of America.
Judge Bell has been involved in some of the most significant cases in Mississippi and drew on actual experiences when he wrote Vampire Defense. He is devoted to his wife, Joanne. They live in Ridgeland, Mississippi and have four children.

In this tender-hearted story, Alan is confronted by the two women he once loved and lost twenty years ago.

Island Passage unites three estranged friends, torn apart by unforeseen circumstances, and then brought together in a tragedy that inadvertently unravels an old secretâ??a secret that could ultimately destroy them all.



Healing Lily : a novel of hope

Healing Lily : a novel of hope

by D. Stephenson Bond

How do you go on your first date after losing your husband on 9/11? It’s been three years and yet Lilly struggles with hope and courage to meet the right kind of man who can help her find herself as a woman again. Kind of tall and kind of shy, Daniel is from another world in Lilly’s Boston, a Beacon Hill psychoanalyst with issues of his own.

Healing Lily tells the unique love story of two people frozen in the winter of their grief reaching for each other, reaching for love they are too hurt to find. Sensitively written, this probing novel explores the aftermath of 9/11 on an intimately human scale reaching deep into the human psyche to touch on themes of the healing power of psychoanalysis and Francis Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden.

D. Stephenson Bond is a practicing psychoanalyst who has lectured widely on the topics of myth and creativity. He is the author of four books, including Living Myth: Personal Meaning As a Way of Life (Shambhala) and The Archetype of Renewal (Inner City). He graduated with an M.Div. from Vanderbilt in 1981 and from the C. G. Jung Institute, Boston, in 1997, where he still teaches. A native West Virginian, fiction is his lifelong passion, with short stories including “The Mountain Song” appearing in The Mountain Review and “An Evening at the Symphony” in Scribner. Healing Lily is his first published novel.

In a recent interview, Bond noted: “I got interested in the 9/11 widows in the months after 9/11. I think I saw Kristen Breitweiser on Larry King Live and then read the Gail Sheehey article on the Jersey Girls. What fascinated me so much was that in the months and years after 9/11 those widows represented a kind of moral authority on what had happened, a moral authority that was lacking in, well, everything else. Then my analytic mind got to thinking about them and I wondered how a person would work through an experience like that. And the result was Healing Lily, my first published novel. It’s about how people work through grief, but with the edge of 9/11 I think it’s also about the change, the cultural change and the end of an era that 9/11 represents, as if it were a collective dream announcing what is coming. But it turned into a love story-quirky, you would say, because an analyst knows too much to be naive about love stories-because when you’re a writer the characters take over and go to new places. And that was fine with me. We’re gonna need a lot of love to get through this.”



My Stranger: a novel

My Stranger: a novel

by D. Stephenson Bond

What if someone gave you a dangerous gift? And what if that gift was a lost novel from the Great Depression and an old man’s dying request that somehow, some way you had to find a way to publish it and warn people of what was coming? MY STRANGER is the strange story of Joyce, a failed writer living in New York during 9/11, struggling to come to terms with the gift Percy had left her when she was only twenty years old, only to find after thirty years that his tale was true.

MY STRANGER is the thought-provoking literary novel on the theme of the deep changes in the American psyche after 9/11. Set in New York, it explores the writer’s passion for writing and the sacrifice of living a writer’s life. This experimental fiction is set in two parts. Part One is presented in the form of letters written to Joyce’s brother on the occasion of the publication of her of life’s quest, Percy’s depression era novel When Comes the Stranger. Part Two gives us the strange novel, told in the form of a mystery tale, embracing a haunting story of a mysterious stranger and his mansion overlooking a dying New York City.

MY STRANGER offers penetrating reflections into the life of the a writer and sets a new standard in post 9/11 fiction.



Between the Rage and Grace

Between the Rage and Grace

by Janna Hill

Clara O’Bromley, Maggie Turner and Linda Latrull have several things in
common, they’re Southern, they’re strong women and they’re nurses. But
there is more to be revealed as the layers of their histories are peeled
back to reveal how their futures are interwoven.
EXCERPTS:
About Clara
“He looks like that in my dreams too.”
Clara couldn’t believe she’d said that out loud but it was the truth. He
did look like that in her dreams….

Each step illuminated wherever his naked feet set down till the
blackness broke all around him She tried to stay in the dream realm a
few times before, wanting to see what was on the other side of the
darkness but always the flash sent her flying back through the void into
reality.

About Maggie
Maggie couldn’t yet speak as the pink bubbles foamed from her blood tinged lips and
she coughed up bits of soap. The stinging in her lungs made it hard to catch her breath, much less speak.
He held her there in front of the mirror with one hand full of hair and the other squeezing
her jaw line.
“Have you had enough?”
Maggie nodded.
“You owe me an apology. You know that?” He said staring down into her eyes and pressing his
thumb harder into her neck. “Now do you want to say something?”
She nodded again and he slowly released her chin. “Go ahead.”
Maggie cleared her throat and dabbed at the bubbles with her tongue that were still forming
with each gasp, took a deep breath and declared “Fuck you.”

About Linda
Linda was finally going to LSU. She had waited forever it seemed but the letter of
acceptance had arrived and she was jubilant. But Ms. Latrull always had a way
of dampening her miniature moments of joy.
…She didn’t want to appear presumptuous, unappreciative or ignorant either but if she was to be his mistress he was certainly taking his time in seducing her.

…Linda poured two ounces of bourbon into a glass with one ice cube and returned to the
darkened room. Sitting the liquor on the end table beside him she bent and reached for the chain dangling from the lamp. Ray grabbed her wrist, “Leave it off” he said, “The gentleman prefers it in the dark.”
Linda looked up to find the mayor smiling down
at her.

The Tapestry of Spirit

The Tapestry of Spirit

by Erik Paul Rocklin

“While there are many that journey who seek, not all that travel will find, for they are bound by what they have been taught and not of what they know.”
— from The Tapestry of Spirit.

An enchanting, allegorical tale with insights of enduring relevance, The Tapestry of Spirit presents an artfully layered story of an orphan boy following a dream — a dream of a meeting in the East with a mystical figure known as the Mage. A seemingly coincidental encounter the day after the dream introduces the boy to an old man, summoned by the power of the boy’s dream, to serve as his guide and protector during the journey. Along the way, some of the boy’s encounters include a wise, elderly Sage, a blind Seer, a captive boy Monk, a grieving Mother, and a dying Father. And through these encounters, the boy learns of the power of dreams, the value of trust and belief, the vision of the heart, and the capacity of every individual to help in the healing of the World. As the boy journeys to seek the Mage, he comes to understand that in doing so, he also seeks his Destiny Thread, and ultimately, how it returns to the universal wisdom that is The Tapestry of Spirit.

At once exquisitely written and tearfully joyful, The Last Noel is one of the great love stories of our time.

The Slave Factory

The Slave Factory

by Julian Darius

Slave factories, a crucial but largely forgotten part of the slave trade, were bases on the African coast that existed to buy slaves and resell them to slaving ships. They were places of notorious suffering and exploitation, detested by both the natives and by white slavers.

This story, in 12 brief chapters, focuses on the intersection of lives at one slave factory, Porto de Maria. Diego, its boss, is jaded. Matthew, its resident priest, has a terrible secret that drove him to Africa. Bowlu, his slave, struggles to find recompense for what he’s lost. William, the ageing captain of a visiting slaving ship, commands a divided crew, worries about interdiction at sea, and has come to Porto de Maria to determine his future. When these lives cross on the eve of the American Civil War, none of them will remain the same.

The Razalians live with the gaps – those spaces of unfathomable white – in many of their ridges, valleys, forests. And then the white begins to moveâ?¦

A collection of twenty one short stories set in present day Britain, offering an insight into the lives of a myriad of people. Via tales of childhood, youth, relationships, old age and death along with matters of race and class, I set out to create an encapsulating image on the country I live in as I see it today. Meet Queen Jane, the ultimate unrequited love, meet murderers and heroes, lovers and the certified insane. Meet the homeless in winter, do gooders and those who do bad. Discover the lives of immigrants who struggle and those who’ve made it in a land of rain and sea and greasy spoon cafés. This is a world where university graduates have no future, and the future of everyone is uncertain; where teens attempt suicide, and bored youths commit arson, where aspirations squeeze through the gaps wherever and whenever they can. There may be a few stones left unturned, but there will be another collection coming along in the not too distant future.



Charivari

Charivari

by Harry Posner

It’s the â??Summer of Love’, 1967. LBJ’s America is fighting a losing war in Vietnam, there are race riots in the streets, hippies are thrusting flowers into gun barrels, and LSD has just been declared an illegal substance. Professor of Psychiatry, Thomas Quincy, disillusioned with his profession and his life, is at a crossroads. One of his patients has recently committed suicide, an echo twenty years later of his father’s death, a domineering father who chose his beloved circus over his family. When Thomas’ uncle gifts him with his father’s box of circus photographs, Thomas determines to track down members of the Quincy Circus troupe, gather their stories and through them come to terms with the man who was his father, and with his own deep woundedness. His journey across the body of America ultimately becomes a search for simple human truths and a meditation on the nature of identity, memory, and forgiveness.

7 Myths About Aquaponics

7 Myths About Aquaponics

by Michelle Booth

If you have ever tried to keep tropical fish – or even the odd goldfish – you may be put off trying aquaponics due to the problems you’ve experienced.

Perhaps you had a kitchen windowledge like a chemist’s shop, with medicines for various fishy ailments and potions for altering the acidity of the water, the alkalinity of the water, the nitrate content of the water, the wateriness of the water. It can seem that you can never get the water just right for the little creatures.

Maybe you got fed up of waiting for the kids to keep their fervent promise to clean the aquarium every week – and ended up doing it yourself and having to clear a month’s worth of gunge out of the filters and off the glass every time.

Who could blame you for thinking that aquaponics is going to be like that with a few lettuce thrown in?

The good news – no, the great news – is that Aquaponics is different! It is as far removed from keeping an aquarium as keeping lions on a safari is from keeping a domesticated moggy in a small home. The domesticated cat will scratch your furniture (and possibly your legs), require regular de-fleaing and de-worming, need meals served twice a day in a special bowl from expensive little tins with gold edges and use a box filled with bought litter that you have to clean out frequently before it stinks the house out, etc.

The lions? You just drive through their paddock in a LandRover once a day and bung half an unfortunate cow out the back for them to scrap over. The lions in the safari paddock look after themselves, pretty much. The domesticated cat wants to be waited on hand and paw.

The aquaponics system is like a self-managing microclimate. It is a complete system on its own – a safari on its own if we continue the analogy!

This is a short eBook to give you a basic understanding of how aquaponics works and what equipment is involved. I’ve also covered some of the questions that newcomers to the hobby often have.



Gambling Addiction (Real Stories From Addicts and How to Beat Gambling Addiction)

Gambling Addiction (Real Stories From Addicts and How to Beat Gambling Addiction)

by Jake Ploeth

In this book you will find three true accounts of individual’s that are, or have suffered from

gambling addiction in their family and or life along with important information about this addiction.

Jake Ploeth has taken their stories and put it into words for others to read.

Problem gambling is a unique type of addiction. Those who are addicted to alcohol or drugs have become

dependent upon the substance itself. Sure, there are emotional and behavioral issues as well, but

their bodies have become physically dependent upon whatever substance they have become addicted to.
Gambling, on the other hand, is more of a behavioral addiction.

It is not uncommon for those suffering with a gambling addiction to go through a change spiral when

recovering. Every person’s journey is different. For some, they are able to overcome their problem

gambling on their first try. It takes others a few tries. However many attempts it takes, each time

you get back up and try again, you gain new tools and understandings.

The Herb Handbook: A Practical Guide to Using and Growing Herbs

The Herb Handbook: A Practical Guide to Using and Growing Herbs

by Simone McGrath

Botanically, “herb” refers to any annual or perennial plant with a non-woody stem. However, the term herb has come to cover plants that have a specific benefit to mankind. Some even consider them to be the highest quality food known to the human race. We have been using herbs for thousands of years, both for flavoring food and for healing. They’re versatile, easy to grow – either in the garden or in pots on the window sill – and can be used fresh, dried or frozen.

Herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, or in some cases even spiritual usage. For culinary purposes, the green, leafy part of the plant is typically used, but for herbal medicine the roots, flowers, seeds, root bark, inner bark (cambium), berries and sometimes the pericarp or other portions of the plant are also used.

When you think of herbs, common herbs such as Basil, Parsley and Rosemary come to mind. But there’s a wealth of herbs that are not so common: herbs that have a myriad of uses. In this book, we have attempted to introduce some common as well as some relatively unknown herbs and discuss their properties, uses, cultivation strategies and much more.

I hope you find a lot of useful information in this herb book and learn to cultivate some amazing herbs!
