Michael Jordan is a name that transcends sports as one of the most recognized athletes of our time. There are not many athletes that are known outside of the sporting world like he is.  Mention the name Michael Jordan and everyone from die hard sports fans to people who have never watched a sporting event in their life will know the name.  We have all seen his gravity-defying dunks and his clutch shots that defined his career, but how much do you know about the path he took to becoming the global phenomenon he is today?

This book delves into the details of Michael’s life and gives an inside glimpse of those moments that shaped Michael Jeffrey Jordan into Michael “Air” Jordan. You’ll learn about his life as a youngster growing up in North Carolina and find out what he’s been up to since he retired from basketball. You’ll also get an in-depth look at some of his greatest on-court moments from his NCAA Tournament game-winning shot as a freshman at North Carolina to his championship moments as the star guard of the Chicago Bulls.

Michael has lived a life full of tremendous highs including winning six NBA championships, but he has also dealt with extreme lows such as the murder of his father and his failed attempts as a basketball executive. Through it all he has persevered and shown millions of children and adults that he is the ultimate competitor and champion. We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane and relive some of Michael’s greatest moments while learning some new things about him along the way.

Coaching Kids: All Team Sports

by Frank Watts

Disgruntled parents, win at all costs, troublemakers, playing time, balancing talent, and tracking drop-outs… These are just some of the issues faced head-on in Coaching Kids.

Coaches experience many problems many created by excluding parents from the process. In a fun and lighthearted manner full of real-world examples, Coaching Kids provides concrete ways to involve parents in the process and is a step-by-step guide to kid-coaching basics and trouble management. It is the perfect primer for organizing and coaching kids K through middle school.

Much has been written about coaching kids. Most books are sport specific covering only one sport and going into depth on its mechanics. Others are more general mostly feel-good psychological stuff. They often focus on how to make the participants feel better not necessarily perform better. Very little, however, has been written on the basic challenge of coaching kids in general, regardless of the sport, and even less on organizing kid sports from the coach’s and league’s viewpoints.

Golf’s Greatest Players: Jack Nicklaus

by Parkway Publishing

* Includes an in depth look at the life of Jack Nicklaus
* Includes several picturse
* Includes a table of contents

Jack Nicklaus is more than just a famous name in golf history. While he is most known for his prowess on the golf course, he has also done a lot to promote and further the entire sport. From his award winning golf course designs to his philanthropic work, Jack Nicklaus is truly one of a kind when it comes to generosity and humbleness.

Jack Nicklaus started out golfing as a child for fun and then his hobby led him in to doing it as a full time career. He dominated the course from the time he entered high school until he declared himself a pro and left Ohio State University after three years of studying to become a pharmacist. Jack said he never imagined golf would be a career for him because he loved to play the game so much. However, it worked out well for him as he left school to try and earn money on the golf circuit and earned way more than he ever could have imagined.

Besides setting records on the courses for just about every record ever kept, Nicklaus became a legend off the course as well. He went into business designing golf courses and remains in business with his sons to this day. Many of the PGA major golf tournaments are held at his courses. There are Nicklaus designed courses in many countries around the world, not just the United States.

Besides designing courses, Nicklaus also has a line of golf apparel, three lines of golf clubs, a brand of wine, a golf academy, a real estate division for his golf courses and even a travel agency. They all relate to golf and how a person can enjoy their game better. Nicklaus oversees hospitable charities with his wife and they donate hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to many worthwhile causes in their home state of Ohio and their adopted state of Florida.

Jack retired from golf in 2005 but still works on designing courses and organizing his own charity tournament on the PGA circuit. He and his wife Barbara had five children and twenty one grandchildren. They permanently reside in Florida near many of the courses he has built over the last couple decades.



Golf’s Greatest Players: Arnold Palmer

by Parkway Publishing

* Includes a detailed biography on one of the greatest golfers to play the game
* Includes several pictures
* Includes a table of contents

There are few professional athletes that have made an impact on their sport like Arnold Palmer. Palmer single handedly elevated golf into the worldwide phenomenon it is today. He was the quintessential player who transformed the game from a hobby into an art, and was the complete package of good looks, charisma and charm. The fact that he was the best golfer of his day didn’t hurt either.

Like many other great athletes, Arnold Palmer transcended sports. Today Arnold is a variety of things to many different people: golf immortal, successful golf course designer, prominent businessman and devoted family man. In a world where famous athletes are known for their demonstrative personalities and prima donna attitudes Arnold Palmer was and still is a breath of fresh air.

Despite all of the success, fame and money he is known for his unwavering kindness and affability. It was that approachability and genuineness that propelled him to stardom in the 1950’s and has endeared him to millions of fans all over the world.

We’ll take you through Palmer’s life from the son of a groundskeeper in Latrobe, Pennsylvania to the pinnacle of golf success on the PGA tour as he captures 62 PGA Tour victories including seven major championships. We’ll also take you behind the scenes of his golf business including his golf course design firm and his founding of the Golf Channel.

Palmer’s life on and off the golf course is inspiring. Unlike so many elite athletes, he was able to transition from the game as his body failed him and did it with dignity and honor. He has too many accolades to list – including the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2004. Ask him and he’ll tell you he’s just Arnold Palmer, a kid from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, but to us, he’s “The King.”

Year 50

by Geoff Bluske

Complete Edition includes both Year 50 and Year 50: Trial of the Summer

“On the fringe of extinction, it will take bravery to persevere. “Year 50” is a science fiction novel set in a future where humanity is nearly extinct, and the last human colony is struggling to survive against the combined cruelty of nature and an alien species. Calypso has been raised from her young life to fight them, and it’s now on her to save her colony by finding the medicine they need. “Year 50″ is a riveting novel that should prove hard to put down.”

Michael Dunford
Midwest Book Review

Year 50:

It has been almost 50 years since the planet was nearly rid of humans. Wildlife grows without restraint, erasing the metal and concrete structures left behind. Even where industrialization was most prominent, trees and grassland are aggressively reclaiming their land; Earth is pulling away the scab of human civilization.

A young woman named Calypso leads a team of Scavengers beyond the walls of Brighton, the last human colony. Her goal is to find medical supplies, necessary to preserve humanity’s future. It is a dangerous journey few have the training, ability, or psychological threshold to carry out.

The team’s journey involves days of travel through infested city ruins, something even the most battle-hardened survivors are unwilling to do. Entering The Wild means facing Puppets, creatures which nearly exterminated humans and are now the predominant species. They are human bodies being controlled by an alien parasite, turning them to feral, ravenous creatures driven only to consume and replicate.

Everyone on Calypso’s team has been trained to kill these monsters from the moment they could hold a weapon. They have learned to never underestimate the alien monsters, as any mistake can bring death. But a short ways into the scavenge, the team discovers that Puppets are mutating, making them more apt predators now than ever before. Though the journey now borders on impossibility, Calypso pushes ahead, as failure by her team could mean the end of humanity.

Year 50: Trial of the Summer:

A young boy from The Slums is attacked and killed by Puppets along Brighton’s western wall. Circumstances show that many Brighton residents potentially contributed to this death. The seven Founders, operating as ruling council for the colony, conduct a hearing to determine if anyone is culpable in the death, or if it was solely the result of an alien attack.

Testimonies from various residents paint the picture of the fateful day. The Founders listen to the stories of people involved, knowing there is much at stake. Tensions have been growing within the colony over the last year, with civil war potentially on the verge. Should someone be deemed responsible for the boy’s death, it could be the catalyst Brighton has been staving off.



Lost in Space-Time

by Randall S. Smith

Lost in Space-Time is a tale of imagination, combined with research of various internet blogs on physics and presented in an easy-to-read format.

The reader is introduced to the sphere-arena orbiting in space for concerts of the future. Reverse-engineered items are introduced based on Area 51 rumors. We meet the Greys living in an inventive three-D environment in two-mile wide starships. Tachyons are utilized when light-speed is needed. Reverse-spin of electrons solves an engineering problem, based on researched speculation. In one scene, there is even a street fight reminiscent of one in “West Side Story”. The fourth and fifth dimensions are incorporated into this tale, in an easily understandable fashion.

As in another, better-known tale, this one has a princess, good and bad, conflict, adventure, and of course romance.

So ignore the lone one-star rating posted by a sourpuss who was more interested in transitive verbs than creative imagination. Who really cares about such things anyway where entertaining fiction is presented? If you like what you read, if fun science fiction means more to you than transitive verbs, if you want to know what happens to BB, if you want to know where the groups’ next adventure will take them, take a moment to go to amazon.com and give this story your rating.

The story Lost in Space-Time tells the tale of a group of young astronauts that discover how to fold space and travel great distances almost instantly. It also follows a young girl from her trying days in an orphanage, through her days as a killer street fighter, and watches as she encounters the Greys, the Earth astronauts and finds romance.

Excerpt: “If this works, and I emphasize â??IF’, a pod will form around the ship. We’ll be like a pea in the pod, and our surrounding space will squeeze us from all sides, propelling us forward for awhile. We’ll be propelled by the tachyons, and since their minimum speed is the speed of light, things could get interesting. I have no clue how long it will last or what will happen, but I’ve got the tachyons set for a ten second burst.”
“Do it! Do it!” they all chimed in, as each hurriedly strapped themselves into their seats.

This story is included in my adult fiction collection “Willful Women” ($2.99 on Kindle) and the book has received a 5 star ratings on Amazon.
PG is too tame for some readers. “Willful Women” is a collection of short stories focusing on the more fun and adult sort of entertainment, murder, scandal, corruption, and of course, sex. With the theme of the willing and able woman for many adventures, Randall S. Smith tells many pulpy and fun stories that will give readers a great deal of fun. “Willful Women” is a fine collection, not to be missed.

Some of my other stories available on the Kindle are:

Just Rewards is a tale in the mid-sixties of bank robberies, ransoms and revenge.

About Sam – a fast-paced story of a housewife who secretly is an agent for Homeland Security.

That Old House on Delaney Street – a thriller centering on a demented older couple who keep a pair of teens prisoner in the basement of their old, haunted-looking home.

Polar Opposites – Two women meet while each is masquerading as someone else. Should they be best of friends or worst of enemies? Interesting plot twists along the way in this engaging tale.

Lost in Space-Time – If you like sci-fi, this one is based on things that could be true, with romance and adventure.

The Sinclair Affair – A young orphan woman survives an assassination attempt to discover she may have a twin. She ventures off to the big city to find her, having many adventures along the way.

Pirate Queen of the Caribbean – A young woman unknowingly befriends some drug runners, is kidnapped by a group of more vicious ones and evolves into the wicked and bi-sexual Pirate Queen.



Human Space: The Glaive Parliamentary Republic

by John Harper

All three ion cannons fired together and three of the massive bolts leapt across the thousands of kilometers. Two more bolts from each turret were on their way to the target before the first bolts struck. The first three bolts passed through the navigational shielding of the craft as if it did not even exist. Striking the bare alloy armor that made up the hull, they released their energy in a massive flash of bluish white photonic energy. Massive lightning bolts were playing across the aft end of the craft the second set of bolts arrived striking the target amidships and adding to the lighting storm now engulfing the entire back end of the craft. Minor explosions played across the hull as sensor clusters exploded from the massive energy surge. In one area of the hull, an airlock opened inadvertently due to the powered magnetically locking mechanism giving up the ghost to the storm of energy raging around the ship spilling tens of cubic meters of atmosphere in to the void of space before emergency bulkheads slammed shut sealing the breach. The escaping atmosphere formed a crystallized cloud around that area of the ship for a short time before it was vaporized further by the raging lighting. The third set of bolts struck slightly forward of amidships and the storm seemed to grow in fury even further. The craft’s in-system drive went in to emergency shutdown in an attempt to save itself from the hurricane of force assaulting it through the craft’s own power conduits. Inside the ship, personnel were flung from their assigned stations as consoles literally exploded from the power surges running rampant throughout the ship. Breakers located in junctions throughout the ship tripped trying to spare the central computer core from what it saw only as massive power surges. The storm actually lasted only a few short moments as it ravaged the craft from fore to aft before finally abating, leaving a drifting intact hull full of wounded and stunned personnel.



The Doorbell

by Oliver Clarke

They are a normal couple in a normal house on a normal street. They could be your neighbours. They could be you. When their doorbell starts ringing at the same time every night they think it’s a prank. But it isn’t, it’s something far more sinister, something that will tear their lives apart. The Doorbell is a terrifying short story from the author of Sunliner.



The Khekarian Threat (The Khekariain Series)

by A.D. Everard

THE JSHI MOVE BETWEEN DIMENSIONS.
THE TERRANS THINK THEM A MYTH.
ALEISHA SEES THEM. STURN WANTS THEM.

Their abilities will ensure the overthrow of the Chiddran Empire and secure for the exiled Khekarian prince his return to power.

There are harsh penalties should anyone give Sturn less than what he wants. His bodyguard, Sevi, can deliver. Aleisha should not have crossed him, she knows what Sevi can do.
Jackie should not have crossed him, she knows what Sevi is.

Now it’s Raoul’s turn to take them on – and win – or watch the downfall of the Chiddran, the takeover of Zumaridi, the enslavement of the Jshi and the eventual fall of the Terran Sector.

He has no choice. He has no plan. Raoul leads a small team of engineers, not fighters, and Jackie, the only fighter he has is down.

Andrew wouldn’t have seen it if he hadn’t been looking into the sky pretty much right at the thing.
Reflected light glistened from a long way up. It was getting bigger. Fast.
His eyes grew wide, his reflexes taking over and propelling him to his feet. Something was coming in.
There was no time to shout a warning. He dived outward away from the pontoon as behind him the huge dance floor of a raft was punched hard into the lake, hitting the bottom and causing a wave to balloon outward. The pontoon snapped in two, rebounding. Half of it jettisoned from the water clear into the air and hit the shore with a crash of tin and plastic and wood. The other half bobbed and swayed on the turbulent waters. Burning.
On the shore, neither Jackie nor Sally had been given time to see what the attack was or where it came from. As the raft exploded and ignited, Jackie swept an arm around the girl’s shoulders, pulling her to turn away from the lake. The blast swept over them, hot air smacking their bodies, ripping at their hair, burning their skin.

WARNING: This book contains ADULT THEMES and COARSE LANGUAGE.

California Man (Contemporary romance) (Salt Spring Island friends trilogy)

by EC Sheedy

Reviews:

“The slow steady, buildup of sensuality without being overly sexual made this book hard to put down.” Affaire de Coeur

“An exquisitely sensitive love story featuring appealing characters with a wonderful chemistry between them.” RT Magazine

Book description:

Too shy to loveâ?¦

Quinn Ramsay is facing the biggest decision of his life, whether or not to sell his hugely successful sports conglomerate. His schedule has been insane for years, an endless series of trains, planes and automobiles. Even so he’s not so sure he wants to give it up. For what, he keeps asking himself. Where would he go from here? What would be his next step?

With those questions in mind, he heads to a friend’s house on Salt Spring, a small island in the Pacific Northwest that promises solitude and uninterrupted time to think and plan.

Not in his plan is meeting Emily Welland, the shy owner of the local bookstore. She intrigues him as no woman has in yearsâ??more so when he sees how determined she is to avoid him.

Emily is timid, insecure, and introspectiveâ??and she has her reasons. She’s read about Quinn Ramsay, the brilliant and handsome celebrity entrepreneur with the Midas touch, and she’s seen pictures of him in the tabloids, always with a beautiful model or actress on his arm. She knows he walks red carpets with the same ease that he hosts charity sporting events and fund raisers. His glittering California life is the polar opposite to her quiet, safe, and reclusive life on Salt Spring Island. And when he starts to show an interest in her, her initial reactions are disbelief, fearâ??and panic attacks. None of which she can control.

All of which makes Quinn more interested than ever.

After Eric suffers a traumatic attack, their friendship gives way to an intense passion. Eric’s no stranger to casual sex, but what he feels for Nick is something deeper, and more fragile.

Rock, meet hard place.

The People in the Mirror

by Thea Thomas

Culture shock. That’s what Nikki experiences when her father is transferred from Laguna Beach to Seattle. Gazing up in the gray drizzle at the gargoyles on the apartment building that is her new home, she tells herself that life as she knows it is over, that boredom is all she can hope to look forward to.

But that was before she saw the people in the mirror and before she met the gorgeous young man next door….
________
From THE PEOPLE IN THE MIRROR:
“Watch your footing.” Mitch turned on a flashlight and pointed it at the ground. I followed him when, suddenly, he disappeared into the ground. I backed away.

“Come on,” he urged.

“Where are you?”

“There’s steps.” He pointed the flashlight up steps where he’d disappeared. “Do you see them?”

“Just barely. Why are there steps into the earth?” I made a great leap of trust as I cautiously took the first step down. It seemed fairly solid. I took the next three steps, then turned around and looked up. A few stars peeked through the buttermilk clouds that nearly covered the night sky. I took another step down, and the sky disappeared behind the ceiling of earth.

“Where is this?” I looked around – what I could make out in the glow of Mitch’s flashlight were walls, a sidewalk, an ancient billboard.

“It’s a part of Seattle’s underground city. It’s cut off from the section that’s on the tour.”

“How did you find out about it?”

“After I went on the underground city tour with my dad years ago, I never could stop thinking about it. I knew there had to be more. A librarian dug out an old city map for me, and I figured out where it was likely there’d be more of the underground city. I kept poking around until I found a gigantic rabbit hole and I took it from there.” He studied me for a moment. “Are you going to come the rest of the way down, or stay perched up there?”

“I’m coming down.” I continued on down the steps and onto the wooden planks of the underground sidewalk. “It’s so amazing!” I felt again a bit nervous about his brilliance and maturity. How could I possibly be interesting and intelligent enough for him?

Mitch trained the flashlight on the billboard. “Millie’s Millinery,” it said over a faint sepia drawing of a Victorian woman wearing a huge, billowing hat. Curiously, she appeared to be looking right up the stairs at the night stars.

“She’s beautiful,” I whispered.

“Isn’t she?” We stood reverently contemplating Miss Millie from a bygone era for a few moments, then Mitch took my hand and we silently headed down the sidewalk. We came to a house and climbed the steps to the porch, then he led me through the front door into the house.

“All that’s left of the house is this foyer and the living room, but isn’t the woodwork fabulous?”

I peered around at the scrollwork of the dark wooden Victorian doorways, archways and window moldings, the scent of wood and earth mingling into a musty, lonely aroma. “Yes. Beautiful.”

“Should we sit on the porch?”

“Okay.” The heavy presence of that other time in this undisturbed place stole into me. I felt like I wasn’t exactly myself. A bit dazed and overwhelmed, I followed Mitch back onto the porch and sat on the steps.

“If you stay awhile with the flashlight turned off, your eyes adjust and you can make things out surprisingly clearly. There’s some phosphorescence in the walls that adds a hazy light. You begin to feel what it was like to have lived here. The city takes on a kind of life, like in a dream….”

Can Cord convince Annie to stay in Texas or will she leave him to go to Paris as planned leaving him a bachelor the rest of his life?

The Yellow Dress

by Elizabeth Munro

Captain Cassandra Williams is in love with the sea and her career until she receives an invitation from a forbidden suitor. A short story originally written for the Writer’s Digest Short Story competition in the romance category.

Excerpt:

We’d been running at full speed for nearly an hour; a quick shakedown following urgent repairs to the turbine that powered us over the black ocean. When I sat very still the surface of my bath quivered with vibration that was felt more than heard. As I watched the ripples deepened as the pilot started our slow approach to rejoin the fleet. I’d spent much of the past hour getting grease out from under my fingernails and easing the ache in my back from yanking on a heavy wrench in tight quarters. They were lucky the Captain was small enough to fit where most of the engineers couldn’t.
“Ma’am, engineering is satisfied with the repairs.”
Winter air accompanied her as she let herself in to my stateroom. The Captain’s First Assistant was always the choice of the Captain unlike the rest of the crew who were more often than not assigned by some dumb land-legged bureaucrat back home. My First Assistant came from a proud line of mediocre sailors. Her father and current head of her House never commanded anything sturdier than a lifeboat. Neither had my father for that matter; First Assistant Cora Williams was my sister.
She’d shown no interest in my naval career until I made Captain and earned command of The Esteem. Through bravery and infallible reputation I struggled to bring respectability back to our obscure House. I wanted to be on top; a leader who watched the honour of my House growing as mine did. Cora on the other hand wanted to build our House back up from underneath. Service on my ship gave her access to the kinds of men who could help her; men who could be influenced by the persuasiveness of intimate encounters with the discreet and talented Cora.

A child’s voice said, “Is this where Craig lives?”
Startled, Juliana looked down to see a tousled headed little boy.
Something about the boy was special and it troubled Juliana, but she didn’t know why.
“Yes, Craig lives here.”

The woman began getting out of the car. “Okay, Marvin. Come get your things.”
Marvin looked up at Juliana appraisingly. His bewildered sadness was so profound that even years later Juliana would remember it with a faint smile and a tear.

A big city girl, she only goes out with rich, well- read-men so naturally she falls for Jake Tanner who’s a dirt poor farmer with no hope of getting out of debt and no interest in reading anything except Green Lantern comics, and he read those when he was a kid – so, yeah, go figure! By now you’re saying, okay, but who winds up with the priceless ancient scroll? Well, for that you’ll have to ask Jake because, well, this is his story!

Senior Tour (In Golf, You Do Get a Second Chance)

by Clive Scarff

Jimmy Garnett is a truck driver with a talent for golf. Jenny is a waitress at Jimmy’s favourite truck stop. When Jimmy shares his dream to qualify for golf’s senior tour, Jenny sees another side to this trucker and the two strike up an evolving relationship as Jimmy gears up for the journey of a lifetime.

“Senior Tour” explores the journey of Jimmy and three more otherwise unrelated men, who share but three things in common: a passion for a game, their impending 50th birthdays, and the ability to dream.

In this movie screenplay, we meet them individually, learn of their past, plus what or who is pushing them to pursue their dream. We follow them to a pressure-packed qualifying tournament where we not only see these four strangers put their dreams on the line, but watch as they ultimately meet each other and are forced to interact, to win, to lose, and to grow.

Golf is the only sport in the world that has a thriving, star-studded, and extremely lucrative circuit for golfers aged 50 and older. Its very existence stirs up in many, pros and amateurs alike who are approaching their fiftieth birthday a rekindling of the flame; a re-birth of the dream to play a professional sport at an elite level.

Four middle-aged men. One ageless dream. It’s not often you get a second chance.

The only escapes he enjoys are into the inner worlds of his own making. Then, a beautiful woman enters his drab reality. Suddenly, the protective ramparts Marvin had so carefully erected begin to crumble. Will she set him free?

Some 5 star reviews from online publication:

“I’m so glad Stan Law decided to write a Love Story. In all the sleazy, pseudo-romantic, erotic stuff regurgitated by frustrated has-beens that is flooding the market, this Love Story is like a breath of fresh air. Loved every minute of it. And… laughed a lot! Keep them coming, Mr. Law.” (Anetta Bach, Canada)

“As I am sure is true for most men, with the exception of Romeo and Juliet, I’d never read a ‘love story’. I always assumed this was strictly a woman’s territory. I was wrong. I loved it. I wouldn’t mind being liberated by Jocelyn anytime. Only, the way she does it would enslave me to her forever. This is one of those rare books which, while being overwhelmingly romantic, elevates the concept of love between a man and a woman to an entirely new level.” (Adam Kerry, QC)

Roadmap Through Revelation

by Rick Schworer

For those who’ve picked up Revelation and wondered why Armageddon happens more than once, or which comes first, the Trumpets, the Vials, or the Seals, this is a book that will clearly chart out for you a timeline of events, harmonizing the four accounts of Christ’s Second Coming.

Whether you are new to Revelation or have studied it for years, you will enjoy the short stories that bring Revelation to life. Experience the faceoff between the two witnesses and the Antichrist at the temple. Watch as a living, breathing statue commands the world to worship the Antichrist and receive his mark. Rejoice as the Messiah rescues His chosen people hiding within the rock city of Petra.

This book will help to answer your questions with an in-depth look at the three raptures, the seventy-five days between the Tribulation and the Millennium, the differences between the Red Dragon, the Beast of the Sea, and the Beast of the Earth, and Daniel’s Beast; as well as the history of Baal, Nimrod, and Babylon.

Rev. 1:3, “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”

“When I discovered that Revelation is divided up four times, I tried to find a harmony of it. By that I mean a book or commentary that takes all the accounts and examines them separately and then intertwines them. There are several harmonies of the Gospels available, so I thought I could find a harmony of Revelation. I couldn’t, and I still haven’t. There are several commentaries that touch on the subject, but to the best of my knowledge there are no harmonies of Revelation.”

“When Nimrod died, his wife Semiramis claimed that he was now the sun-god. Nimrod, extolled as the sun-god, was Baal. This is the same Baal that the Israelites had problems with throughout their history. It all started with his wife making him out to be a god after his death.

Not long after Nimrod’s death, his widow Semiramis gave birth to a son named Tammuz, or Bacchus. She claimed that the son was Nimrod reborn, as some kind of messianic savior. The sun and fire became the symbols for Nimrod, the sun-god, and the golden calf became the symbol for Tammuz, the child of Semiramis.

Yes, the golden calf problem that Israel had so many times started with this mixed up family…”

“The “pre-wrath” argument teaches that the church is raptured out in the middle of the Tribulation, before the wrath of God is poured out on the Earth. As already stated, this theory ignores the wrath of God in the first half. The only real evidence for this idea is I Cor. 15:52 which refers to us being raptured out at the “last trump.” The pre-wrath argument claims that we are raptured out at the Seventh Trumpet in Revelation – which would be this one. The problem is, the last Trumpet in Revelation is at the very end of the Tribulation, meaning, that if we’re raptured out at that point we go through all of the wrath of God. In the Old Testament, specifically Numbers 10, trumpets were used to move the camp or to give orders. This is what Paul is referring to. The “last trump” is God’s final command to the church on Earth, to “come up hither.”

“Why do so many of the commentators call these things bowls? The text always calls them Vials. They don’t call the Seals, stamps, or the Trumpets, flutes, but they always insist on calling these things bowls. A vial doesn’t even look like a bowl! A bowl is something you put bean dip in; a vial is shaped like a Coke bottle. Try dipping your chips in a vial filled with bean dip and you’ll see the difference.”

“It wouldn’t take long for perfect people who never die to fill the Earth with perfect people who will never die. What happens then? Well, there’s the entire universe, the new universe that is not cursed…”



Solomon’s Porch

by Wid Bastian

We were created in the image and likeness of God. Our souls are eternal, but for a brief time the immortal is hidden within flesh, the timeless joined to the temporary. Trapped in this imperfect state, we strive to find ourselves and our Creator, our souls desperately seeking to become reunited with the Immortal One.

The characters in Solomon’s Porch struggle between the conflicting calls of world and spirit, they reach out for God’s mercy in the darkness. Through my imagination, they do battle with themselves and against evil, stumbling down the path of life making mistakes, sometimes horrific ones.

They ask, as we all do, why are we here? Is there a God and, if so, what does He want from us? What is our destiny? What is happiness? What is love? What is truth? Is it possible to make sense of a world that exalts the most violent, profane, and merciless among us?

The Son of God touched me, reached out to a very determined sinner and atheist, and by His grace is leading me toward salvation. While I by no means have all the answers, I no longer need them. Faith has replaced cynicism. Knowledge of Christ, who He is, and what He has called each of us to become, now lights my way as I patiently await the Lord’s mercy.

Let all who read Solomon’s Porch see if they can find their own road home through the One who assured us that He, and He alone, is “the way, the truth, and the life.”

Religions of the World: The History and Beliefs of Hinduism

by Charles River Editors

*Explains the history and origins of Hinduism
*Discusses important figures and teachings among different Hindu sects..
*Includes pictures
*Includes Book 1 of the Hymns of the Sama Veda
*Includes a Table of Contents.

A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? Throughout time, people have been religious by nature, and billions today adhere to unique faiths across the world. In Charles River Editors’ Religions of the World, readers can get caught up to speed on today’s religions and yesterday’s religions in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.

In the West, Hinduism is a religion that everyone has heard of but one that few non-practitioners truly understand. Today it is widely regarded as one of the world’s great religions and considered the indigenous religion of India, with practices and beliefs stretching back thousands of years.

However, many of these so-called facts are actually erroneous. Hinduism as it is conceived of today is a conglomerate of a number of indigenous Indian religions; in fact, prior to the migration of Islam and the corporate invasion of the British, Hinduism may not have existed at all. Rather, a number of local religious traditions had very old belief systems dating back hundreds or thousands of years, depending on the tradition, and many worshiped gods that are no longer worshiped today. In essence, it was only through the non-indigenous populations in India, namely the Turks and later the British, who defined what Hinduism was. The British in particular asked only a certain subset of native informants from Bengal “what their religion was” and got a very particular answer, giving rise to the West’s perception of a singular religious Indian tradition known as Hinduism. If the British had not centered their investments in Calcutta, they may have asked a different group of Indians what their religion was and received a different answer, thus changing the popular conception of Hinduism altogether. In other words, Hinduism is as much defined by the non-native “Other” as it is by the so-called native.

Hinduism as a religion spans more than 3,000 years, and today it includes nearly 1 billion people. At the same time, it is not a specific term, since there are clear sectarian boundaries, the same way there are differences between Protestantism and Catholicism, and even differences between the various Protestant sects and the various Catholic sects, Hinduism may be broken down into many major sub-groupings that may or may not have much in common at all. Additionally, in the same way Christianity contains many smaller, spirituality heterodox groups like Gnostic Christianity (which are sometimes called cults), Hinduism also contains many groups that have beliefs that do not fit easily within the common corpus of Hindu belief systems. All of these divisions came well after the time of the Aryans, and Hinduism likely began to divide around the 1st century A.D., about 1,000 years after the arrival of the Aryans into the Indian subcontinent.

Religions of the World: The History of Hinduism examines the history and main tenets of Hinduism, explaining the way the religion has evolved over time, the similarities it shares with other religions and the differences that make it unique. Along the way, it clears up some of the common misconceptions about the religion, and it includes pictures of important figures and places that will help you learn about Hinduism like you never have before, in no time at all.



The Resurrection Power of God

by Bill Vincent

There is a level of faith that causes the dead to live. The Bible says it’s elementary. This is a Chapter that we all need in the Church. I have been given divine revelations from the Holy Spirit and I believe we will see many resurrections in America and across the world.

Have you been in the place where just when you have victory under your belt, the phone rings? Lazarus is dead. All hope that you had for your circumstance is dead. And God says, “I am glad”. Because it is not dead, it is sleeping. And if it is sleeping, I go that I may wake it up.

Double Vision – The Insights of Isaiah (Search for Truth Series)

by Brian Johnston

The Old Testament book of Isaiah can be difficult to understand.

Bible teacher, missionary and radio broadcaster, Brian Johnston, provides the key to open up Isaiah’s message by explaining the “double vision” model that God used in speaking through the prophet.

While what much of what Isaiah said had a current application to the people he was speaking to, there was usually a double meaning which either spoke of the coming of Jesus Christ hundreds of years later, or of events which are still yet in our future.

This short e-booklet is bound to leave you more aware of, and appreciating more fully, the sovereignity of God and his gracious dealings with both Israel and followers of Jesus Christ.

Shaman Lujan Matus Has Answers

by H. R. Phillips

I was an avid reader of the Carlos Castaneda series of books which featured the esoteric knowledge of an Indian Sorcerer called Don Juan Matus. Don Juan was a bigger than life character who had abilities not associated with mere humans in their normal consensus. Indeed, so big as to have had books `proving’ that Don Juan was no more than an interesting book character – upon which legends of his realness would be born.

You see, some of the `new ideas’ talked about by Carlos Castaneda when he was passing along the knowledge of the Indian Sorcerer, such as controlling ones dreams via certain dream techniques, was indeed being experienced first hand by a portion of Castaneda’s readership. It hardly mattered to readers if Don Juan was real or not – some of the `knowledge’ – his knowledge, worked.

Indeed, after the passing of Don Juan from the books – the mantle of Guru fell upon Carlos Castaneda – who promptly created an on-going legacy of mysteriousness. Seemingly following closely some of his own advice – I mean – Don Juan’s advice, – such as erasing personal history and leaving a small footprint. Indeed, after Castaneda’s death and the end of his books, fans desperately wanted to have more of that unique knowledge seemingly contained within those books.

Perhaps wanting the knowledge so much so as to trigger connections to Don Juan and Carlos Castaneda, that to most of the population would certainly appear to be `near ridiculous’. One man wrote a book claiming to have BEEN Carlos Castaneda (getting his thoughts in his mind and writing them down into book form) – and, another man, well, a Shaman by the current name of Lujan Matus – who has written several books based on the knowledge he personally receives from Don Juan within his own dreams.

What’s most surprising is that in the case of Lujan Matus – he is seemingly writing with clarity about non-ordinary realities in only the manner that Don Juan seemed to previously describe them. Specifically, with his focus on building a parallel perception from gathering power via certain methods of behavior in the body, the mind and the spirit.
Does the knowledge of Don Juan exist in a reality state in which he can still actively dispense his forms of thought? Could such a `state’ exist, – a `state’ of space with knowledge, that has been attributed to this `character called Don Juan’, – that it indeed is actually `active’? Is it really impossible? Might it depend on the character of who is seeking such information? Someone such as a Shaman perhaps?

So, I picked up the first book by Lujan Matus and read it – later writing this short review:
LOVED it – one of the best books I’ve read in the last 10 years. A powerful book with powerful words that probe with insights into the human condition of awareness and actions. Lujan maintains that much of his wisdom for the book comes from visits with the Indian Sorcerer of the books of Carlos Castaneda named Don Juan Matus. Lujan takes these DREAM encounters and brings back the kernels of wisdom that do indeed seem to have ties with ancient knowledge. Much of this book is involved with perfecting actions to gain potential power of awareness – and to break ties with standard awareness.

Then, in 2010 I decided to write a `sum up’ of what remained of the whole legacy of Carlos Castaneda, and in turn Don Juan. When I wrote the legacy I included the Shaman Lujan Matus, which later prompted him to reach out to me, and a relationship was born of sorts. Lujan allowed me to interview him for my blog The Heavy Stuff and for my blog UFO Disclosure Countdown Clock. Indeed, in my first interview with Lujan, he made news by telling my readership of an exact date for an alien escalation of contact. This then resulted in additional questions to Lujan, and more importantly, his `answers’. Answers, to the special consensus of perception he seems to have access to – describing to others and raising their own consciousness too.

In Satan’s Grasp

A review of the falsehood of Christ’s Divinity



15 Simple Steps to Losing Your Salvation

by Rick Schworer

BOOK SYNOPSIS:

A new book to strengthen the believer’s assurance of salvation by showing just how impossible it would be to actually lose your salvation. Inside are the 15 steps to losing your salvation, how to know for sure you are saved, the 10 things a Christian really can lose, and the 7 point confusing verse checklist to use when you run into a difficult passage!

BACK COVER DESCRIPTION:

Have you ever wondered, “Am I really saved?” Maybe you remember the time you said a prayer and asked Jesus into your heart, but since then you have questioned whether you really got saved at all. Or could it be that you know you got saved, but you fear that you could never live a life good enough to hold onto that gift.

Everyone at some point in time wonders what will become of them after they die. This uncertainty can especially plague and haunt someone who, though being a child of God, wonders if there is hope for their future. To the person who struggles with the security of their salvation, the prospect of any assurance or peace seems futile without clear answers from Scripture.

Others have taken obscure verses out of the Bible to cast a thick and seemingly impenetrable shadow upon the doctrine of eternal security. God’s shining light will cut through the darkness as you are given clear guidelines for understanding some of the more difficult passages in the Bible, and the looming shadow of doubt will quickly vanish as you read the fifteen impossibilities that would have to take place to ever undo the miracles that God executed at the moment of salvation.

Ecclesiastes 3:14, “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.”

BOOK EXCERPTS:

“One of the most basic and fundamental needs of a Christian is to have assurance of salvation. A child of God must know he’s secure in Christ and that God will always love Him. Without assurance, it’s hard to do anything for the Lord and you could live your life in doubt and frustration, with all your focus on yourself. God has promised to fulfill our needs.”

“The Bible teaches that everlasting life and eternal life are a present possession. It is not something that is promised to you later on, after you die. It’s not something you can only hope to get or earn; it’s something that you have in your possession right away from the moment you believe.”

“No one is ever predestinated to get saved – people are predestinated after they are saved and what they are predestinated to are things that have to do with receiving a new body or an eternal inheritance.”

“There are a lot of things that verse doesn’t say and one very clear thing it does say. That verse doesn’t say that a Christian should not sin, that he won’t sin as much, that he won’t sin willfully or even that he must remain sinless to stay saved. That verse is written in extremely clear English and twice it says that a Christian doesn’t commit sin and that he can’t sin. As in he doesn’t have the ability to sin.”

“In this book you have read scripture after scripture and promise after promise of God’s eternal love and salvation for the believer. You have seen not only the promises made that if a man simply believes in Christ he will never come into condemnation without any exception given, but you’ve also seen some of the more complicated doctrines that intertwine with the doctrine of eternal security. From doctrines relating to the body, soul, and spirit of a believer, to eternal judicial decrees made by God at salvation, to the permanent identity we have within the spiritual body of Christ: a born-again child of God in this age can not undo everything that God has done for him and to him at the moment of salvation.”

“Don’t let the Devil steal the joy of today because of the fear of tomorrow.”

Fire Magic

by Sheri Ann Richerson

There is no doubt that there is something mythical, arousing, mysterious and magical about fire. Fire is the energy of life. Fire is also nature’s cleanser. The vibrant colors licking the flames, the way the flames move about and even the wonderful warm feeling that you receive from being near an open flame all add to the mysterious aspect of this projective magical energy. Fire is said to change the environment from a mundane, common one to one of adventure and romance proving that no matter where a fire takes place it will weave its own magical spell.
The mythical aspect of fire comes from the fact that many cultures have myths and rites that relate to the origin of fire as well as to its preservation.

The Problem of Evil: A Biblical Perspective

by Doug Erlandson

“If God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-good, why is there evil in the world? An all-powerful and all-knowing God would have the ability to eliminate evil while an all-good God would want to eliminate evil. Yet, evil exists. So, how can God possibly be all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-good?”

Commonly known as the “problem of evil,” this question has perplexed philosophers and theologians for centuries. Countless books and articles have been devoted to trying to justify the goodness of God in the face of evil. Others have sought to show that these justifications are unpersuasive.

In The Problem of Evil: A Biblical Perspective, Dr. Doug Erlandson takes a fresh approach to the problem, one that is based on the revelation given in the Judeo-Christian scriptures. Drawing on his nearly forty years of teaching and writing on the issue, Erlandson first of all looks at the traditional attempts to provide a justification of God in light of the evil in the world. These justifications, known as “theodicies,” fall into three major types–metaphysical theodicies, the freewill defense, and greater-good theodicies. Erlandson devotes a chapter to each of these.

Metaphysical theodicies are those that argue that there is something in the nature of creation or in human beings that makes the existence of evil inevitable. Through an examination of St. Augustine’s theodicy as well as that of C.S. Lewis, Erlandson shows that this approach is particularly unpromising as a way of trying to solve the problem of evil.

The widely-held freewill defense, which argues that evil results from the wrong choices of free human beings, is shown to rest on certain debatable assumptions, the most crucial of which is that genuine free choice must result in evil. Through a careful analysis of the relationship between divine omniscience and human free will as well as an explication of what free will is, Erlandson demonstrates that this assumption is mistaken and that attempts to salvage the freewill defense through appeal to middle knowledge and timelessness are confused.

Finally, Erlandson examines greater-good theodicies, using the monumental work of John Hick (Evil and the God of Love) as his primary example. He shows that this approach, which argues that God permits evil to bring about a greater good, is as fraught with difficulties as are the other two approaches.

The second half of The Problem of Evil: A Biblical Perspective presents Erlandson’s fresh approach to theodicy. Arguing that the problem with the traditional theodicies is that they are anthropomorphic (man-centered), he proposes that we take a theocentric approach to the problem, one that assumes that God has created the world first and foremost to manifest His glory, and that He has created the world that is best suited to this purpose. We must also adopt the stance we consistently find in Scripture, as when God confronts Job: God is the eternal Creator of the universe. He knows what He is doing. We may not understand why He has created this world with its seemingly gratuitous evil. But He has promised to lead His children to glory. In the meantime, He asks us simply to trust Him.

Even so, although we must begin with trust, God has also revealed Himself sufficiently that we can gain some understanding of why He has chosen to create this world with its mixture of good and evil. The manifestation of God’s glory in creation involves the revelation of His attributes. Those that bear most crucially on the problem of evil are His righteousness, justice, mercy, and grace. Each of these is most adequately displayed in a world much like the one in which we live.

Finally, Erlandson points to the incarnation and the resurrection as proof that a good and loving God has not only experienced our sufferings and weaknesses but will fulfill His promise to bring His children to the eternal new creation where He will fully reveal to us how everything works to His glory and our good.

Beyond Religion

by P.V.S. Suryanarayana Raju

The religion and science are polar opposites and so they are complementary. Awareness helps you to move from one pole to another. In science one can keep his ego, it is a concentration, one pointed effort. It is a work. Religion is basically relaxation, let-go, no-pointed-ness. It is relaxing in ones own awareness. Work done well brings rest, rest prepares us for work. So work and rest are complimentary. Man must be able to move easily to outside and inside. It is a skill. It is just like moving outside of house and work and then back again to the house. It should not create any problem. We are fortunate to be alive today because something immense is happening today because science and religion are at their peak. Always remaining outside and clinging to it creates problems, similarly always remaining inside is not a balanced life. There is no need to belong to any particular religion which is just an organized belief and dogma if one want to be religious. Religiosity is a quality, a way of life and for this we need not belong to any religion which limits our consciousness with its conditioning, dividing us with fellow human beings.



All Kinds of Prayer: A Study of Ways we Talk to God (Wordmaster 99 cent Bible Study Series)

In this Bible study we learn about different types of prayer from the prayer for the impossible to the prayer for wisdom. We learn about prayers for any season and prayers of communion with God. Each lesson looks at a different type of prayer.

This Bible study does not pretend to teach you “better” ways to pray, as if prayer is some magic formula one uses to get what they want. Instead, it aims to help you understand prayer so your time spent conversing with God can be a deeper, richer spiritual experience.

ALL KINDS OF PRAYER takes a discovery approach to Bible study. You have a short commentary about each type of prayer followed by a list of scripture based study questions. The key is to draw you into what the Bible has to say about the subject. This book is appropriate for either individual or small group Bible study.

Bondage to Freedom (self-inquiry)

by P.V.S. Suryanarayana Raju

Mind at rest is Self. Mind in movement is ego. Empty mind is free. Mind with contents feels that it is in bondage. Action without motive brings freedom. Action with intention is limited and so binding. Humanity is caught up in self ignorance. Every human feels that he is a separate entity not only biologically but psychologically. It is this feeling of being a separate entity that is causing havoc in human society. So one starts accumulating things for himself and his family and is not bothered about the rest of mankind. The concept of community and country has its seeds in family. Because one feels insecure with family he identifies with community and country and accumulates armaments in case there is a war. Armaments are meant to kill fellow human being and we fight war just for ideals thinking that humans of other country are different from us. The concept of nationality is just a glorified tribalism. Every country is spending almost 50% of its income to acquire armaments. See the insanity involved in the concept of nationality. Humanity is one and its problems are same wherever they live. Self centred activity is based on the thesis that one is a “separate” entity and so whatever activity is done will end up in conflict. The contents of mind like comparison, ambition, desire, violence, fear, possession, pleasure, anxiety, hatred, misery, and these are common to all wherever they live and every human is caught in this stream. But if one can observe this self centred activity without the interference of conditioned observer he is free from this stream. The very observation, perception has got its own activity. Awareness is a cleansing agent just as identity is a contaminating agent. Identity with anything limits the consciousness and therefore any activity born out of limited consciousness is bound to be limited and so results in conflict and contradiction. We are free not to be self centred. That happens when you see the danger involved in being self centred. “What is” is the result of evolution. We cannot change it with another part of evolution. But if we observe “what is”, it is changed by the action of pure awareness. It helps you not to identify from the contents of “what is” and so cleanses you. Ego process appears only when the mind is occupied be it daily activity or with psychological activity. In still mind there is no ego.
Because attraction towards things is continuous ego appears as an existential entity. When a fire ball is revolved there is an illusion that there is a circle of fire. If we slow the resolution of fire ball we will know the truth. If that hot iron ball is completely cooled the illusion is gone forever.

When we see a cinema the phenomena in the reel appears to be true, we are involved in it, sometimes we cry, some times we laugh, we like some characters in it and we hate some characters in it, all this because they appearnto be true when reel that is projected is run
with certain speed. If we slow down the reel or completely stop it then only we are aware of the background screen which is unaffected by events in phenomena. So ego is born and dies each moment (Vritti Jnana). There is a gap between appearance and disappearance of ego during which we can find the background of pure consciousness. Ego consciousness is associated consciousness. In self-inquiry we dissociate the consciousness
from outer and inner things. Then awareness of mind is freed from all conditioning, organized beliefs, dogmas, all systems of philosophy, of all preconceptions of what reality or god is. Then mind becomes still. Problems exist only when the mind is occupied. Some how humanity is frightened when the mind is not occupied and so there is perpetuation of problems with occupied mind. Motivated action strengthens the ego and so binds the mind. Motivated action is incomplete and there is the residue of non-understanding stored as
experience in memory cells.



Christian Poetry and The Incredibible Jesumaniac

by John Odziemek

I wrote this poetry book in part because over 20 years ago I had little hope. My life was spiraling out of control. I tried to find happiness in wrong friends, wrong women, drugs, and alcohol. I even was homeless for a short period of time. But alas, something changed. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. When I prayed to ask Jesus into my heart, my life and lifestyle immediately changed. I quit smoking within a week, I quit getting drunk and stoned, I quit cussing, I quit fornicating, and I started to live for Him. As I matured in my Christian walk, I began to live with purpose, and I married the woman of my dreams. Let me say this: life isn’t perfect and either am I. I am just saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. I still have more growing to do. Maybe when you read this book, you will feel you are being judged. That’s not it at all. There’s an old saying, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.” This book is like me leading you to water: living water. It is your choice to drink.

Glory: Expanding God’s Presence (God’s Glory)

by Bill Vincent

If you really pursue God’s Presence you will discover that it is always expanding. This cutting edge book will take you beyond the limits of religion to the extreme Glory of God. Through reading GLORY: EXPANDING GOD’S PRESENCE by Bill Vincent, you will find that there is at all times a sound being released from earth to heaven as well as from heaven to earth. In the unseen realm, it is in the form of energy patterns, waves, particles and though the vast majority of it is not heard with our natural ear, it is sensed by us because we are part of this existence. Science is only just now catching up with the Word of God, but what they are discovering these days, especially in the quantum world of physics, is absolutely amazing as it pertains to scripture. We truly believe all who read GLORY: EXPANDING GOD’S PRESENCE will be encouraged to find more of God.

The Journey

by Michael Mutale

A collection of poems written by Michael Mwamba Mutale, on life, love and spirituality. The poems were written over a period of 18 years, from the time he started writing poetry, when he was only 9 years old.

His style of writing in this collection is abstract and thus each poem seems to have a new meaning each time you read it.
This is his first collection of poems to be published and has that raw feel of a boy and then a man searching for answers, some he finds along the way through his writing, even many years later.
But some poems instead of giving answers just leave you with more questions.

It is a journey told in poetic form of how Michael learns to deal with change; moving from one country to another and how he adapts to changing environments, poetry is also there for him in time of great loss as well as love, allowing him to express himself uniquely.

I have been writing poetry since the age of nine, and considers myself, not only a poet but, a â??student of life’, and I have found that true learning continues right through life and sometimes you learn lessons from the most unlikely of teachers.

Reading has allowed me to learn from others and Writing has allowed me to learn from myself, like a voice from the past or an echo from the depth of my soul, it reveals something new to me each time I read through what I have written before.

“To Learn is to grow”

“The journey was far from easy and the journey is far from over”
Michael Mwamba Mutale

“They” Were Wrong!

When I first started writing over twenty-five years ago, I took several writing courses from various authors, English teachers, poets, literary agents and people in the publishing industry.

The one thing I remember is that they told me that getting published was extremely difficult. They also said that only one in a hundred thousand would succeed. Well, since then

I’ve had well over twenty books published, and that was while I was practicing medicine full time and writing as an avocation.

Either I’m really beating the odds – or “they” were wrong!

The Fall of the Republican Party

by Anthony Alexiou

President Obama presided over one of the worst financial crises and slowest economic recoveries to ever hit the United States. Unemployment was higher at the start of his second term than it was on the day he first took office. He faced gridlock and stymied at every turn. So facing all of this, how could Mitt Romney possibly lose the 2012 election? It had nothing to do with economics or politics and everything to do with a Republican Party that refuses to adapt to the changing demographic and political landscape.

The Fall of the Republican Party details how the GOP is quickly slipping from prominence and seems to be splitting at the seams; one side clinging to the policies of the last 12 years and the other trying hard to change and adapt to what America has become – as uncomfortable for some as it may be.

Will the party reform itself? Will it split apart? No matter what the outcome there is certainly a significant change afoot in the American political landscape. A change that will have major repercussions for years to come.



The New Black Agenda: The Obama Aftershock

by Alan Gandy

In the wake of the first black president’s second term election, you may have noticed racial relations have started to head the wrong way. Or the right way depending on how you feel races should view each other and interact. If you look at posts on social media sites, forums and news groups you will see a rise in racial tensions. With the American landscape changing and the Republican Party fighting for its political life, radical views and desperate proposals are being laid out on both sides of the coin.
In the midst of the chaos a new agenda has been enacted. Some will find it polarizing and some will find it unifying. Some will believe it is the answer to the new racial fears that have surfaced in America and some will just fear it.
This is The New Black Agenda.

Bitter End (Seychelle Sullivan #3)

by Christine Kling

Product Description:
Book #3 of Christine Kling’s Seychelle Sullivan series is loosely based on the real South Florida murder of Greek immigrant tycoon Gus Boolis, once the owner of South Florida’s Sun Cruz Casino Gambling boats. In Seychelle’s new caper, she may just be in over her head when murder and corruption come bobbing to the surface.

Since kindergarten, Seychelle and her best friend, Molly, had been as close as sisters. Molly even dated Seychelle’s brother. But it all ended suddenly when Nick Pontus, a slick, older, up-and-coming entrepreneur, came along. A smitten Molly quit school, married her new beau, and never spoke to Seychelle again. After thirteen years, it still stings.

Seychelle didn’t see the sniper who picked Nick off at the helm of his yacht, but she knows that there are plenty of people in South Florida who wanted to see the gambling-boat tycoon dead: the Russian mobsters looking for a piece of his casino action, the Indian gamers who resent his competition, and the ecological activists fighting his plans to develop Fort Lauderdale’s waterfront. But it’s Molly whom the cops zero in on. And despite her bitter feelings and against her better judgment, when her back-from-the-blue friend asks for help, Seychelle can’t just weigh anchor and cruise. She’s got to dive in.

What she finds is a money-skimming scam aboard Nick’s flagship gambling boat, Nick’s new trophy wife turned merry rich widow, and Nick and Molly’s teenage son, a scared kid with a big secret . . . and a killer on his trail. Protecting the boy, proving Molly’s innocence, and navigating between squalls of gunfire add up to a tall order as salvage jobs go. But like any good captain, Seychelle will never abandon ship. Even if it means risking her life.

About the Author
Christine Kling is the author of five nautical thrillers and one anthology of short stories. She lives aboard her 33-foot sailboat Talespinner and travels wherever the wind and free wifi may take her.

The First Detective

by C A Lane

This extract is the opening 7500 words (approx.) of the full length detective novel, The First Detective, written by award-winning writer and director C A Lane. The novel will be published exclusively on Amazon in February this year.

The First Detective is a rollicking traditional yarn told firmly tongue in cheek and is based on the real life friendship and adventures of internationally renowned novelist Charles Dickens and Inspector Field of Scotland Yard.

The first in a planned series of novels, The First Detective features a young Charles Dickens, failed actor and wannabe writer, serving as apprentice to his fellow failed actor Inspector Field. Together, they take on all the sensitive, difficult jobs Scotland Yard hasn’t the time or the inclination to pursue. Left in debt after Dickens has allowed his attraction for the beautiful Lady Hetherington to jeopardise their latest case, the duo are grateful — and more than a little surprised to be hired by wealthy industrialist Lord Bartholomew to find his missing grandchild. Desperate to regain their reputation for results, and their cash, they take the case despite Dickens being resolutely convinced the search is a wild goose-chase and the boy is already dead.

As Dickens and Field’s search for the lost boy takes them into the murkiest, most dangerous corners of Victorian England they make a multitude of dangerous enemies and must combine their very different skills in order to stand any chance of saving Bartholomew’s grandchild and themselves from certain death at the hands of powerful members of the establishment, men who have dark secrets to keep and who would hide those secrets at any cost.

Gypsy Spirit (Tango of Death)

by Rita Karnopp

Gypsy Spirit is Book 1 of Rita Karnopp’s Tango of Death series published by Books We Love.

Few people realize that being Gypsy in 1943 Poland was as dangerous and frightening as being a Jew. It is guessed that between five hundred thousand to one million Gypsies perished during the Holocaust, the Porraimos (the devouring) as the Gypsies called it.

Gypsy Spirit is the story of fifteen year-old Zilka Sucuri, a Gypsy girl who is thrust into the horrors of the Holocaust. Her life of traveling from town to town, singing and dancing the Gypsy way comes to an unconscionable stop when a SS death squad shoot every man, woman, and child in her kumpania. If she had not literally been up a tree, she would have been among those lying dead in a mass grave.

Her lungo drom (the long road) takes her across Poland, Austria, and Germany in a driving struggle to help an American pilot return safely to his unit so he can return to bomb the many concentration, work, and death camps all across Poland and Germany. Her efforts reveal the truths of Belzec, the challenges of the partisans, and the burning desire to survive to be a living witness of what truly happened to the non-Aryans of Hitler’s Germany.

Gypsy Spirit is a story of the driving spirit of a Gypsy girl, who took it upon herself to document the truth. Her strength and determination brings to light a story of magnanimity and the fears and atrocities such a Gypsy girl might have lived through.

Mutations

by Elizabeth Cameron

Grieving from the untimely death of his fiancee, Ryan Winslow, the young dynamic director of the Fallbrook Museum of the Arts and Sciences in Cambridge, Massachusetts, resigns his position and wanders throughout South East Asia eventually boarding a freighter bound for Prince Rupert.

Passengers are contemptuous of the food, the crew, the tired and ugly seaports and particularly of each other. Then during a severe storm and in the treacherous waters of the coastal shipping lanes of British Columbia, the freighter collides with an oil tanker with the apparent loss of life of everyone on board. Yet incredulously, Ryan and five other passengers are alive, trapped in an airtight compartment in the bow of the freighter, perilously perched on a subterranean shelf 624 feet below the surface.

Ryan soon discovers an A.R.S. – a system used for scrubbing the air installed in this compartment, is providing their life support. But, for how long? Would anyone even know they were still alive?

When a submarine picks up a signal from the sunken bow and with suspicions already aroused by the circumstances surrounding the collision, the US Navy scrambles to begin a covert rescue operation.

In a valiant attempt to keep their spirits hopeful, Ryan begins to realize that his fellow passengers are far more than just victims. One of them could be dangerously insane, or a cold-blooded killer.

The Reverent Gilbert Manchester, a Baptist Missionary being recalled from Kyoto, Japan. A remote, brooding man full of vengeance at man’s evel deeds.

Eddie Derosa – a shy, dangerous weasel of a man, intent on surviving at any cost.

Melanie Kincaid – a young, pretty nurse who seems to reflect a personal concern for the dignity of life – or is it death?

Gerald Banning – an aging homosexual from New York, terrified of life and even more terrified of dying.

Anna Langford – a private school teacher, looking forward to her retirement until her opes and fears begin to feed in her murderous imagination.

On the surface while weather conditions owrsen, mysterious delays lead to the suspicion of sabotage and then to the unthinkable possibility of terrorism. In their tomb at 624 feet as the recirculated air supply dwindles, the fate of the survivors takes a deadly turn. First one passenger dies, then another. And then in a grisly “accident”, a third. Ryan must face the horrifying truth that they have been murdered. While the killer’s identity remains unknown, he must now defend himself and try and uncover the identity of the murderer.

In the last desperate house and minutes remaining before the bow is to be brought to the surface, hairline cracks begin to shift the buoyancy and threaten to send the bow and the survivors to certain death on the ocean floor two miles below.

Micky Mallet, P.I.

by Randall S. Smith

Micky Mallet, P.I. is a mystery which introduces us to an ex-cop, turned P.I. and to a mysterious black ops agent. There are several suspicious deaths when an egocentric billionaire desires the wife of a powerful politician.

Excerpt: The portly, wealthy businessman had been found dead on the floor of his high-rise office, with a pair of broken eyeglasses lying next to his head. A bullet-hole in the window was clear evidence of what had happened. The nearest building of comparable height was a half-mile away, indicating this had been the work of a professional.

Excerpt 2: Alima was the only wife who he had not gotten to sign a pre-nuptial agreement, and she was not the type to go willingly. A divorce would be too time consuming and costly, possibly draining half his estate. He didn’t need the added aggravation in his home life. Over the years, he had cultivated relationships for handling despicable, immoral acts. It was now time to use them.

#3 – “You goddamn Americans; my people will teach you arrogant infidels some lessons. We are Allah’s messengers!”
“What are you saying, sir?” she asked him as he lay on his stomach, handcuffed.

Midwest Book Review – “PG is too tame for some readers. ‘Willful Women’ is a collection of short stories focusing on the more fun and adult sort of entertainment, murder, scandal, corruption, and of course, sex. With the theme of the willing and able woman for many adventures, Randall S. Smith tells many pulpy and fun stories that will give readers a great deal of fun. “Willful Women” is a fine collection, not to be missed.”

Some of my other stories available on the Kindle are:

Just Rewards is a tale in the mid-sixties of bank robberies, ransoms and revenge.

About Sam – a fast-paced story of a housewife who secretly is an agent for Homeland Security.

That Old House on Delaney Street – a sexual thriller centering on a demented older couple who keep a pair of teens prisoner in the basement of their old, haunted-looking home.

Lost in Space-Time – If you like sci-fi, this one is based on things that could be true, with romance and adventure.

The Sinclair Affair – A young orphan woman survives an assassination attempt to discover she may have a twin. She ventures off to the big city to find her, having many adventures along the way.

Possessing Sara

by Hazel Hart

Sara Kramer, who doubts everything, is pursued by two men of opposite but equally strong faiths: Garth Drummund,a New Age psychic healer and Junior Lawson, a fundamentalist preacher. When Sara refuses the preacher’s proposal, he blames the psychic healer, believing the man has put a curse on Sara and she is now possessed by demons.

Excerpt:
The rapid thuds sounded again. “Sara, open the door. Uncle Oren told me someone followed you last night and that someone vandalized your house. I want to help you, Sara. Please open the door.”
He didn’t sound crazy. Maybe she should talk to him. She crossed to the door and put her hand on the knob.
Then she heard her neighbor’s voice.
“Junior Lawson, what is all this commotion about? I heard banging all the way from my place,” Ida Mae scolded.
Sara pressed against the wooden barrier that protected her from the outside world and listened for Junior’s reply.
“I need to talk to Sara. She’s in danger,” Junior said, his voice edged with irritation.
“I’d say Sara doesn’t want to talk to you,” Ida Mae shot back. “If she did, she’d let you in.”
Deciding she couldn’t let her elderly friend face Junior alone, Sara opened the door. “What’s going on out here?”
At the sound of her voice, both Ida Mae and Junior turned, their battle faces fading to shock and concern.
Sara stepped outside, squinting against the light reflecting off Junior’s car window.
Ida Mae gasped. “My goodness, girl, those dark circles around your eyes make you look like death warmed over.”
“It’s the demons,” Junior declared. “She’s possessed.” He rushed forward and grabbed her shoulders. “You’ve got to let me help you. The demons must be exorcised.” His fingers dug into her flesh.
She brought both hands up and pushed on his chest. “Let go of me,” she screamed. “Get out of here and stay away from me.”
Still, with all her struggling and threats, she was unable to break his hold.
Ida Mae grabbed his arm and tugged. “Let go of her, Junior. Let go, or I’m calling the police.”
But Junior’s grip only tightened. “I’m trying to save you from the demons, Sara. Let me save you.”
She looked into his wild eyes. If anyone here was possessed, it was Junior. Remembering moves from her self-defense course, she tightened her fist and jabbed him in the stomach. He moved back slightly, eyes wide.
Taking advantage of the distance, she opened her hand and smashed her palm against his nose. Blood spurted from his nostrils and he staggered back, cupping one hand under his nose and reaching for a handkerchief with the other.
Through the blood and tears, shock, dismay, and determination all registered on his face. “I’ll be back, Sara. I won’t let the demons win. I swear I’ll save you,” he vowed before turning and stumbling down the steps.

The Big Freeze

by Michael J. Katz

THE BIG FREEZE is the third in the acclaimed Andy Sussman/Murray Glick comic mystery trilogy from Michael J. Katz

“Spirited prose, refreshing surroundings, deftly delineated characters and engaging protagonists.”
Library Journal

THE STORY: Sportscaster Andy Sussman is presented with a mysterious manuscript. It’s his buddy detective Murray Glick’s account of the disappearance of a young woman at the Sunburst ski resort in Colorado. Now Murray has vanished, and Andy must trace back Glick’s unreliable narrative, solve a murder and stop a kidnapping.

“Katz, who’s always looking for good ways to segue between New York sportscaster/ amateur investigator Andy Sussman and his buddy, seedy Chicago private eye Murray Glick finds a honey here…Katz’s breezy, what-the-heck style is always easy to take.
Kirkus Reviews

“A light-hearted romp of a mystery…a solidly plotted mystery that provides a glimpse of the conflicting problems facing developers and environmentalists.”
The Toronto Star

“Panache, charm and wit. All are apt descriptions for the style of Michael Katz.”
West Coast Review of Books

“Crackles with wit.”
ALA Booklist

Also by Michael Katz:

Murder Off The Glass

Last Dance In Redondo Beach

“Murder Off The Glass is like an off-balance jump shot that rolls tantalizingly around the rim before dropping through for the score.”
Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times

“Murray Glick is a new type of private eye in contemporary fiction…Get. You’ll like.”
New York Times

“A highly entertaining tale. Katz displays a flair for witty dialogue and for funny characters as well.”
Publisher’s Weekly on “Murder Off The Glass”

“What a lot of raffish, rowdy, reprehensible people Michael Katz has assembled on Redondo Beach. I loved hanging out with them, and I was sorry when the party was over.”
Donald Westlake

“[Andy Sussman’s] dogged pursuit of the facts is consistently beguiling. Katz’ character is as relentless in the pursuit of the story as Gregory McDonald’s Irwin Fletcher, and he could just as easily be played by Chevy Chase.”
New York Newsday

“The second adventure of Andy Sussman, an out-of-shape, un-suave personality, should delight his fans…Funny, poignant, and definitely human.”
Sara Paretsky

“Michael Katz is one of the wittier crime writers to come along in some time. I enjoyed Last Dance In Redondo Beach every wry step of the way. Don’t miss it!”
Roger L. Simon

“Katz makes the men behind the gaudy facades believable figures rather than comic grotesques…the unmasking of both victim and killer is cleverly and comically plotted.”
Los Angeles Times

Excerpts:

“Mitch shook out his hands, watched mud and slime splatter against the hard packed dirt. After damn near six hours of slogging through bottomland, he’d found a road. He hiked up one canvas pant leg and inspected the three tiny pairs of puncture wounds on his calf. Almost delicate, the trio of red perforations marked the places where a determined cottonmouth had struck repeatedly. Each bite-mark was an objection to the disturbance Mitch caused as he struggled to hold the woman’s head under the surface of the brackish water. At seventy-three, the lady had been a real scrapper, a good fighter.”
– Last Chance for Redemption

“The gun swept the room, the assailant’s arm held straight out like an accusing finger until it pointed at her chest. Death would be swift at least. She supposed the end of life offered a resolution of sorts. The upside meant no more strain or deception. Bethany squeezed her eyelids shut and found comfort in knowing that Brian would mourn her passing. Her dumpy husband had wormed his way into her slate heart. That was something.”
– The Man in the Dark Suit

“A car would be waiting at the street level in a matter of minutes; she just had to reach that relative safety. She tightened the straps on her backpack and thought for a fraction of a second about the man who’d fathered her. He’d been an absentee parent for the last few years but it hadn’t always been that way. To her surprise, a tear spilled down her cheek. She was an orphan now. Well, as much as any daughter of the Russian District was allowed to be, since the community was family too.”
-The Tsar’s Granddaughter



I KNOW YOU’RE HIDING & I’LL FIND YOU

by Janis Anderson Yelton

I Know You’re Hiding I’ll Find You

Dawn Standers enjoyed living near the top of a mountain until one pitch-black, dangerously cold night, her car ran out of gas – leaving her stranded on a desolate stretch of road, fifteen miles from her home, with only dense woods along the way. Being a well-known author, Dawn Standers had enjoyed the peace and tranquility the mountains provided for her writing, and liked being in close proximity to her publisher. But the events that take place tonight will change everything.

Dawn’s shiny new Lexus sputtered twice before coming to a complete stop.
 
“Oh no – I’m not out of gas again.” she said loudly.

Dawn had met with her publisher and chastised herself for not checking the fuel gauge before leaving the village. In frustration, she laid her head on her steering wheel. It was then that she spotted it – a light in the distance. Feeling as though she must seek refuge from the cold, Dawn decided to follow the light, believing it must be coming from a cabin on the other side of the mountain.
 
After hours of struggling in the darkness around pines and through thick underbrush, Standers had lost all feeling in her limbs; so when she saw the cabin, she felt a sense of relief. But as she walked closer, she heard a woman’s screams.

Not knowing what to do, but knowing she must find shelter from the cold, she quietly walked up the steps to the nearest window; but in doing so, toppled over a stack of firewood. Knowing she must have been heard, she ran back into the woods and hid behind a tree. She watched as a man, with a fire poker in his hand, flung open the cabin door. She once again began to run, but as she did, she glanced behind her. The cabin door remained open and the light coming from inside lit up a small section of the woods – enough that she was able to see the man was running behind her!
 
Knowing she was unable to outrun him, she once again hid behind a tree. As he approached the spot where she was hiding, he suddenly stopped and stood quietly. Dawn was sure he was listening for noises – noises he hoped she would make. She now wondered if he had been following her by listening to sticks breaking beneath her feet as she ran. As he walked on, he began to slash through the underbrush with the fire poker and saying again and again as he did: “I know you’re hiding and I’ll find you.”

She remained hiding until his voice sounded off in the distance. She set off in the direction where she believed she had left her car, struggling to continue. Twice she had thought she heard him and dropped to the ground, hiding in the underbrush.

Finally Dawn spotted her car. That would be the last thing she would remember.

I Know You’re Hiding & I’ll Find You has an unpredictable ending. This is Janis Anderson Yelton at her best!

Into the Shadows

FIRST TIME KILLER

by Alan Orloff

In shock radio, nothing is too far over-the-top in the pursuit of ratings.

Not even murder.

During his twenty-six-year career, D.C. radio talk show host Rick Jennings steered clear of outrageous radio. Wasn’t his thing. So when WTLK execs tap him for the Afternoon Circus to land a lucrative satellite deal, Rick struggles to maintain his standardsâ??and his dignity. A chilling call (“I’m a long-time listener, first time KILLER.”) leads to the discovery of an intern’s arm in a trashcan. Rick spars with the “First Time” killer over the airwaves. The police are stymied. Ratings skyrocket. And First Time continues to knock off members of the Circus, phoning in to gloat afterward.

In a world of psychics and poseurs, crazy deejays and crazier callers, it’s up to Rick to bring First Time down before more people perish.

****************************************************
If you toss the movies Network, Play Misty for Me, and Talk Radio into a blender and add a liberal serving of Howard Stern, you’ll get the flavor of FIRST TIME KILLER (a full length suspense/thriller – 86K words, the equivalent of approximately 350 printed pages).

Zak Allen is the author of the ebook horror/thriller, THE TASTE.

Zak Allen also is the darker pseudonym of Alan Orloff, author of the Agatha Award finalist DIAMONDS FOR THE DEAD (2010) and the Last Laff Mystery series (KILLER ROUTINE (2011), DEADLY CAMPAIGN (2012)), from Midnight Ink.

Indigo (Screenplay Version)

by JB Lewis

SYNOPSIS:
One day at the mall turns Joss’ life upside down when his daughter is kidnapped right under his nose. With the police suspicious of Joss’ past and the FBI harboring their own agenda, Joss enlists the help of his brother, Mark, and together go on a dark and cryptic search for his daughter through the underbelly world of trafficking and dark government agencies.

Running out of time, the brothers find more than what they expected and are faced with decisions they never thought they would have to make.

In the early 70’s, it was believed by many that Indigo children had come to shift humanity and the powers that control it. In fear of its own survival, the government sent out probes to search for signs of these children. Born with the powers of foresight, telekinesis, telepathy and immunity to disease, it was thought by some that an unknown sector of government was devised to abduct these children and harness the power within to serve a darker purpose.

But can the powers of the government fight the light within the children and convert them into the weapons they desperately seek?



Men With Guns

So does Armando Duarte, Big Ed’s rival for control of the North Jersey drug trade. Then there’s Tiny Lianides, a bail bondsman, who’s in the hole for 100K after Ego failed to appear for trial on a drug rap.

Enter John Mack, former NYPD detective, now working in New Jersey as a private license. As a favor to his old friend, Tiny, he agrees to track down Shabazz. With the help of his associate, skip-tracer and part-time philosopher, Costas Dalmas, they follow Shabazz’s trail from Washington, D.C., to the hills of North Carolina to the torrid streets of Little Havana, bumping heads along the way with various mobsters, murderers and other ne’er-do-wells.



Misguided Trust

by Kayden Lee

With the sudden death of her mother, Claire Kelp’s life is turned upside down, throwing her into a whirlwind of depression and emotional disconnect from the only family member she has left; her stepfather, Max. With too many unanswered questions, and mistrust over the death of her mom, Claire refuses to stay with Max after returning home from college. Against his advice, Claire agrees to join her two best friends on a road trip across the countryside. When this road trip takes an unnerving turn, leaving the three college students stranded in a dead-end town isolated from civilization by miles of timbered woods, Max is the only person Claire wishes to turn to. Without phone reception, and no way to leave, the girls must determine how to survive their time alone with the handful of suspicious people thriving in the small town.
Deciding whom to trust, and accepting that people are not always what they seem, is a deadly lesson that Claire will have to live with for the rest of her life.



A Timely Death (novella)

by Lucas Nicolato

“I understand that you don’t believe in the possibility of the supernatural. Am I not right, Lord Dunsley?” – that was the last question Mr. Touvard asked to me, just a few hours before being villainously deprived of his life.

There were present in the room some of the most intelligent men and women I had ever met, including the host himself, for Mr. Touvard was counted among the most accomplished – and certainly the richest – scholars living in Paris at the time. Yet not one of those outstanding intellects seemed to be able to grasp the subtlety of my opinions on the subject, and thus I had, much contrary to my usually humble attitude, to briefly lecture the small attendance on some metaphysical distinctions.

“Much on the contrary, my dear friend, I would say that it is you, and your adorable guests, that fail to believe firmly enough in the supernatural. In face of a little mystery you sooner bend the very Laws of Nature than take the time to consider the most probable cause – the actions of the agency of known supernatural causes. I, on the other hand, always keep the principles of my investigative method, never positing an unknown miraculous intervetion when a much simpler explanation is available. For make no mistake, my friends, I believe in the existence of men and women, and we are certainly supernatural entities – indeed the only supernatural beings we know for sure to exist.”

Woodhill Wood

by David Harris Wilson

“He had to go on. The snow helped him slide. He grabbed handfuls of grass, digging at it with his fingers and pulling himself forward over the ground. He flailed with both hands and pulled again. The sudden strength in his arms shot him onward and the pain vanished under a wave of desperation. So, with his heart pounding in his neck, Gurde dragged himself down the lawn like a beached seal sprinting for the sea.”

Matt Duff parents are in constant conflict, so he spends his time alone on a hill not far from his house waiting for something to change. He thinks the newspapers point towards his lawyer father being the final victim of a UK serial killer but no-one believes him. His innocent attempts to help are the trigger that changes everything.



Inviolate

by Michael Link

Is a young girl ever safe from a sex predator?

Shortly after her family moves to Colorado, eleven-year-old Shannon Marsh is cunningly seduced and molested by her teenage neighbor, Gene Gillian. When her mother learns of her assault, she refuses to disclose to anyone that her daughter has been molested, or to report Gene’s crime. Two years later, Gene brutally rapes eighth grader Connie Wojcik when she is walking home from a Halloween party. Despite being arrested and his voice identified, Gene is once again able to escape being indicted.

Connie is left to struggle with her emotional and psychological trauma, while her parents and brother try to deal with the affect her assault has had on their own lives. A therapist who was herself a victim of childhood sexual molestation counsels Connie to accept that although her physical virginity was stolen from her, only she can choose when and to whom she will surrender her innocence spiritually. While Connie works to recover her self-esteem and confidence, Gene Gillian continues to seek out new prey.

A story of love and friendship, Inviolate depicts the blind innocence of young people unaware of a potential threat that can exist anywhere at any time. Based on true incidents, it illustrates the terror and humiliation of sexual assault and the collateral damage that is inflicted on a victim’s loved ones.

Passing Through Paradise

by Dennis Vickers

“Collage: an assemblage of diverse elements in unexpected juxtaposition.” Passing through Paradise is a collage of narrative elements, some forming linear narratives, others embellishing these narratives with odd images and facts. Characters appear and vanish. Plots take shape and develop. Settings adjust sporadically. Themes emerge. Mysterious satyr-like character pops up in Colorado and walks to Chicago, gathering an entourage along the way, to put on Sophocles’ satyr play, Ichneutae. Naive author of newspaper articles falls into ill-starred infatuation. Derelict Jazz-age theater, subject of intense political wrangling, is razed to make space for characterless condominiums. Elements from these and other narrative fountains splash onto the pages to create a playful literary kaleidoscope.

A feast of narrative morsels; some create delicious entres, others garnish with unusual dainties and treats. – Worthy Banguet Jr.

A carnival of feast and frolic. – Merry Libertines International

Hundred of exotic ingredients in this recipe, mixed and stirred in surprising ways. – Epicurean Toyland Ltd.

7 Myths About Aquaponics

by Michelle Booth

Is Aquaponics For You?

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!

Personal Note From The Author

Hi! I got interested in aquaponics as part of a self-sufficiency drive. I wanted to be healthier and organic food is very expensive; and I wanted to reduce my grocery bills (following a divorce). I’m very concerned by the amount of pesticides in store-bought foods and love the idea that I can grow beautiful vegetables and salads right outside my back door. They taste like food used to taste!

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 – questions that I had myself before I started.

I wanted to reassure people that aquaponics isn’t difficult and isn’t overly expensive. I delayed getting my own system because I thought I wouldn’t be able to cope with the plumbing aspects but it isn’t complicated – it is actually rather like ‘plug & play’ on computers!

I hope this little book goes some way to encouraging you to get started with aquaponics – or to inspire others to join in with this fun and cost-effective hobby.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fashion Model Blueprint: How Women Who Are 18 – 30 YEARS OLD, 5’2 – 5’7 TALL, A SIZE 4 – 10, Can Break Into Fashion Modeling In 3 Months (fitness Model and Swimsuit Model)

by Chris Jay

You don’t need to be 6 feet tall and a size ZERO to be a fashion model, fitness model or a swimsuit model. I know this may be shocking to hear. After all, the media constantly shows images of women who are tall and skinny as models. However, there is a secret in the industry. There’s an underground group of women who make $100K to $300K each year as fashion models, fitness models, and swimsuit models — and most of these women are NOT 6 feet tall and most are NOT a size 0-2.

Finally, I want to reveal to you how you can be part of this “Secret Society” of women how quietly make 6-figures each year doing what they love: looking beautiful, modeling the latest fashions, meeting terrific and influential people, and traveling to fun places. Let me first warn you, I’m not claiming you are guaranteed success just because you purchase my book. I’m not guaranteeing that you will make 6-figures in the next 3 months.

What I can guarantee to you is that you will learn how what photographers and some modeling agencies hope you never find out. There is a 1-2-3-4-5-6 step process to becoming a model. These 6 steps is my “6 Commandment” process to breaking into fashion modeling, fitness modeling, and swimsuit modeling in the next 3-months. If you follow my system, you greatly increase your chances of becoming a model.

And, it won’t cost you more than about $50!

Even if you had to borrow $50 to become a model, you could get the money. You don’t pay that money to me. That $50 is to pay for travel and lunch as you interview at various agencies, the way I tell you to do it. Let me also warn you that being a model is NOT for everyone.

— If you’re a Diva … modeling isn’t for you!
— If you can’t follow instructions … modeling isn’t for you!
— If you think modeling is a part time hobby … modeling isn’t for you!
— If you have too much drama in your life … modeling isn’t for you!

If you’re still reading, then you at least passed my first test of being a model. What does my “6 Commandment” process reveal to help you become a model?

** Commandment 1: Thou shalt know their body type BEFORE approaching any modeling agency

** Commandment 2: Thou shalt research which division at a modeling agency might be best for your body type and skills

** Commandment 3: Thou shalt only use basic photos showing your natural beauty and ignore what so-called photographers tell you

** Commandment 4: Thou shalt follow up with modeling agencies you approach in a systematic way

** Commandment 5: Thou shalt present themselves in a professional manner at all times

** Commandment 6: Thou shalt listen to Chris and follow his Blueprint and not listen to some photographer who says he/she knows better

Obviously, the details are revealed in my book. DOWNLOAD THIS BOOK TODAY, before enough photographers and agencies get upset with me for revealing these secrets that can get you access to the “Secret Society” of women who make $100K to $300K a year — and most are not 6 feet tall and a size ZERO.
