Caribbean Bones

by Richard Corwin

The British and US Virgin Islands in the Caribbean was the frontier paradise of the 60′s and early 70′s where adventurers used the islands as a base of operations for nefarious activities in the Caribbean and South America. There were treasure hunters, counterfeiters, assassins, Black Panthers, rock stars, movie stars, wealthy industrialists, and lots of other folks looking for an escape from their boring ordinary mainland living. Others brought their yachts to join the large charter fleet in St. Thomas, stop to visit or continue on to other ports.
The islands would enter into a frenzy of development in the early 70′s that would change forever their free, frontier paradise character. Native fishing schooners would disappear; high speed ferries replaced colorful native transportation, a mega yacht marina would be built on the bones of Yacht Haven Marina where most stories in this book had their beginning; where the people who made adventure their way of life inspired the short stories of Caribbean Bones.
The ghosts of Yacht Haven, and its Marina, still haunt Dick but in a good way.
Not a day passes that he doesn’t remember sharing a drink and laugh with Mama Cass; playing darts with “Mad Dog,” Fairchild on Virgin Gorda; liars’ poker with actor Bill Davis at Trader Dan’s on the waterfront or the “The Lovin’ Spoonful,” a
stoned rock band neighbor at the marina. He went to the islands to find adventure and explore the wonders of freedom and found more than he had ever hoped for.

Lay Me Down To Sleep (Hannah and Pastor Jayne)

by Lucinda Lane

Eighteen year old Hannah believes in abstinence and that sex before marriage is a sin. But Hannah is also being driven crazy by sexual desire to the point where she has trouble sleeping. To make things worse, the sleeping pills she has been prescribed make her even hornier!

Pastor Brad Jayne has admired Hannah’s transformation into a beautiful woman from afar, but when she comes to him and confesses how great her need is, when she asks if it would be a sin if she didn’t have a choice in the matter… the temptation is too much for him to resist.

Please note: This 6000 word erotic short features a full figured eighteen year old virgin deflowered as she sleeps by her older Pastor…. who doesn’t believe in birth control! It includes scenes of sleep sex, oral sex, virginal sex, defloration and culminates in a big messy internal creampie.

Excerpt:

At that moment he truly ached for her. She no longer represented a test. Instead she was a prize. Why he deserved such a wonderful gift he did not know, but here she was.

She stirred at his touch and he pulled his hand back as if burned. But it wasn’t a waking sound, instead a gentle purr of satisfaction as she exhaled.
He tried again, this time caressing the side of her face with his hand, following the curve of her cheek to her soft golden hair. He knelt and stroked her again, growing a little more bold as he followed through, his hand mapping the curves of her neck and shoulder. When she exhaled he could smell faint mintiness of her toothpaste on her breath.

Brad kept stroking her sleeping form, growing bolder by the minute. With each touch came a repeat of that little purring sigh. As he ran his hand over her side, over her flared hips and along the length of her slender exposed legs, her body began to move in time to meet his hand. Her sighs became a more urgent.

Hannah drifted in and out of awareness. The sleeping pills always did a number on her. She felt hot and horny and her dreams became so vivid that she struggled to tell whether she was awake or not. It was in this state she entertained fantasies of being taken. Always against her will. Her faith was strong, she would not stray, but if she had no choice? What then? Something had awoken inside her body.

Tonight the dreams seemed particularly vivid. She could feel the heat of another body in her room and without warning a touch. First her cheek and then straying further. A hand leaving a trail of warmth along her side. Goosebumps formed on her exposed flesh as the same hand travelled the length of her long smooth legs.

Part of her wanted to protest but she could not. Her body started to move in time with the gentle caress. With each stroke she thrust her chest outwards. Her full breasts so hot and aching to be touched. Hannah couldn’t help but be proud of her breasts. She knew it was sinful and she felt she should be ashamed of that pride, but she could not.



Pirate Dave and his Randy Adventures (Career Ending Romance Spoof)

by Robyn Peterman

After all was said and done, the disgusting novella meant to destroy a story stealing New York Time’s best-selling author’s career was successful. Rena, an accountant with no discernible literary talent, and her band of adorable porno writing grannies came up with the worst piece of literature, (and I use that word loosely), that was ever written. Amazingly enough, it became a cult classic. Who in the hell knew there was an underground need to know and love a Time-Traveling Vampire Warlock with erectile dysfunction and his conjoined lady loves, Laverne and Shirley?
Apparently the need is there and now so is the full version of their story . . .

** Special Note from Author Robyn Peterman **
This is a spoof. A profane romance spoof not meant for anyone under 18. I was threatened lovingly and repeatedly by my readers to write the full version of Pirate Dave. He was born of the need to create a horrific career ending romance novel to destroy a really bad, nasty villainess . . . and Thank you Buddha in a tube top, it worked! I laughed my way through writing this and I hope you will enjoy this small slice of my warped brain. NO, this is not what I normally write, but I certainly had a good time penning it! If you want to read the real romance story, you’ll have to peruse HOW HARD CAN IT BE? You’ll find the first three chapters at the end of the hot mess you’re about to read . . . And now, I give you the career ending novella, (hopefully not mine) otherwise known as PIRATE DAVE AND HIS RANDY ADVENTURES.

**************************
“How Hard Can it Be? is outrageous, profane, hilarious, sexy, and all kinds of wacky.For a good time, read Robyn Peterman!” – MICHELLE ROWEN, national bestselling author

“A zany over-the-top rompfest.” – LEXI GEORGE, author of Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar

“If you’re looking for a brilliantly written, hot mess of hilarious shenanigans that will make you laugh until you pee, root for the underdogs and swoon like a Southern Belle then you’re going to love How Hard Can It Be. Go read it!!”– Wicked Little Pixie Reviews

Peterman’s debut is laugh-out-loud, rolling-on-the-floor, snort-Pepsi-through-your-nose funny. A very quick pace with hilarious characters and nonsensical scenarios will keep readers on their toes. Rena is a walking disaster, and it’s hysterical that her dream guy is a straitlaced cop. Fate definitely has a wicked sense of humor, and this tale will show you just how fun falling in love can be.– 4 STARS RT Book Reviews

Reviews for Carol Mason’s novels:

‘A writer of compelling insight with a gritty yet humorous edge.’ Daily Mirror

‘A sweet, sad tale about love, loss and the crazy way the world works to reclaim love again.’ Cosmo Australia

‘A beautiful story about coming to terms with loss.’ Yorkshire Evening Post

‘This cross between Mamma Mia! and PS I Love You is fast and furious chicklit. (Send Me A Lover.) Red Magazine, Top 3 Must Reads

‘Full of realistic emotional twists… There is a refreshing honesty about the numbness that comes from discovering an infidelity and the shame that comes from perpetrating one.’ The Telegraph.

The Secrets of Married Women. ‘There is a fresh and vital edge to this superior debut novel. Mason has much to say about relationships. Her women have resonant characters and recognisable jobs, which give depth to their messy lives.’ Financial Times

If only there were some way for me to give this book more than 5 stars. I can honestly say without a doubt that The Love Market is by far my favorite chick lit novel I’ve ever read. Ever. Danielle, Chick Lit Reviews, January, 2011
I picked up this book to read just a few pages before bed; by midnight I was a hundred pages in, wide awake and anxiously reading to see what happened next.’ Cheryl Wartman, The Edwards Magazine Bookclub

‘A satisfying read with compelling characters and a concept that had me hooked from the first few pages. It’s really easy to get caught up in the story and realize it’s already 2 a.m. and you haven’t put the book down.” Ali deBold, Chick Advisor

As I was reading this book a strange feeling overwhelmed me. I couldn’t wait to review it. I couldn’t wait to share it with others. This is the same feeling I had when I first read Emily Giffin and made the startling discovery that chicklit didn’t have to be vapid – that it could be intelligent, engaging and introspective. Mason’s writing flows beautifully. This is simultaneously a comedy that knows when to be serious and a drama that knows when to be funny. 5/5 stars. Meredithdias.com

I have not been able to stop thinking about this book since I finished it several days ago. This novel does a beautiful job of depicting the complexity of life in terms of dealing with what could have been. I highly recommend it.’ Mavis Davis, Dewey Decimal System Rules

‘Mason is as great with character development as she is with prose. Her lyrical writing and true sense of her characters sets her apart from other writers of the genre.’ Alison Scott, The Allure of Books.

by Ralph Estes

Everyone knows the saga of Billy the Kid. That story’s been told, in an avalanche of books, songs, movies, TV programs. And yet – no one has given Billy’s side. Until The Autobiography of Billy the Kid. Oh, there have been many claims that it wasn’t Billy whom Pat Garrett shot in Pete Maxwell’s darkened bedroom on July 14, 1881. But in fact it was. Billy just didn’t die then. With the help of loyal friends he played dead, was “buried” long enough for Garrett to leave, nursed back to health, made his way to Wichita, and under the name of Henry Carter became a leading rancher until cancer laid him low. And now: Billy tells his own story. What were his feelings and fears, his pleasures and regrets? What really happened, not the media and the movies’ and Garrett’s exaggerations. Just as Billy, as he lay dying in a care center, told it to a young Ralph Estes in 1951.

Prickly Scots Pt I

by S P Mount

Shattered by constant mental abuse, an ugly duckling with an eidetic memory accidentally murdered her parents on her sixteenth birthday – a bittersweet tragedy that plunges the course of her life into a never-ending spiral of loneliness, alcoholism and bitterness while presiding over the residents of the orphanage her family estate has become.

But Sadie Wallace unwittingly receives the ultimate opportunity to change everything when an inexplicable celestial occurrence happens over Scotland, bringing with it a charismatic young couple that never seem to age.

Secretly residing in a fantastical castle on Mouse Island from where it disappeared in the 16th century, now fully-loaded with alien technology and occupied by an outrageous flower species, the MacGregor’s are back to mastermind the latest incarnate of their son – Archie’s destiny to complete a series of bewildering tasks that’ll free them all from an ancient family curse – not easy when dealing with a sarcastic, iniquitous being that even their know-it-all companions, a species known as ‘The Unpronounceables’, have no knowledge of.  With absolutely no idea of how to time-travel, the secrets of which are closely guarded by the law of a galactic community that detest an unsuspecting humanity, no one said it would be easy.

But it’s not only Sadie who changes beyond recognition as the past becomes irrevocably altered; caught up, in search of acceptance, family and even love, so too, as parallels intermingle in the chaos of ‘the butterfly effect’, does a motley crew of irascible but delightfully droll characters.

Sully Street

by D. P. Lyons

The year is 1973. The place is a town in Central Maine. The town, Fairfield, is a quaint, bustling little town which has a history that is strong and true. With a school rich in academic and sporting achievements, its residents follow along the footsteps of those who walked down a long line of heritage, packed with dignity and honor.

Majestic, old houses and manors dot the countryside, adding their beautiful tales and antiquated stories within the town’s bound chapters that have formed over the years. One manor in particular, the Merriman Manor, has a unique story of its own. Its aged timbers and warped floors cling tightly to a hidden story that has remained a secret for over a hundred years. One manor’s story that holds dignity, pride, and a slice of faith, topped off with a spoonful of freedom. A surviving story that no one remembers, or knows. A story that needs to be made known and real.

It’s the late days of summer, 1973, and Fairfield is a town with a bustling, steady heartbeat. It is a town that supplies a constant adolescent building block, chock full of vim and vigor. It is a town that holds the imaginations and curiosities of five adventurous teenage boys. Five boys who, in the course of three hot, summer days, unknowingly stumble their way into a twisted, forgotten truth about the human spirit, all but lost in time. It is about the innocence of five friends, who, as comrades, see this bond grow stronger with every beat of their youthful hearts. It’s about the unmatched bond of youth, and its ability to withstand the elements of their times, shining through brighter and stronger than ever.

Journey back into those golden olden days of 1973, and ride along with Dustin, Kevin, Wally, Teddy and Frankie as they ride their bikes and take you along, back through the years to rediscover the simple joys and pure adolescent passions that are such a big part of this moment in time. Pull up your kickstands, check your tire pressure and come ride along with them as their innocence is tested, and the will of pure teenage comrades proves to be the glue that binds their friendship and holds tight to the true meaning of the everlasting spirit of youth.

She knows that she doesn’t have their beauty or sparkle, and she’s well aware of the fact that she never will. At thirty, the chances of her suddenly outgrowing her physical and social awkwardness are practically nonexistent. She has buried herself in her work as an elementary teacher, resigned to spending the rest of her life being the responsible one in her family while her mother and sister bask in the adoration of every man who crosses their paths. Desperate to escape from the sad reality of her life, she takes a wild risk and books passage on a cruise. Her sister and mother immediately laugh at the absurdity of her on a cruise, but she refuses to give in to their cutting barbs or her own self-doubts. For the first time in her life, she’s going to do something strictly for herself.

Colin has a very specific role to play if he hopes to get close enough to Garret to be there to nail him for the crimes he’s committed. A woman like Claire is the direct antithesis of the sort of female his working persona would be interested in. She could be a poster child for frumpy introverts everywhere. Yet, he finds that the more he gets to know her, the more he’s drawn to the woman hidden beneath the shapeless dresses and absurdly long hair. Claire has never had a man like Colin show any interest in her. She knows it’s too good to be true, but finds that she can’t bring herself to walk away from him. Not even when he makes it abundantly clear that he isn’t a man who wants anything more than fast, hard sex. She isn’t the kind of woman who has affairs, but then she hasn’t ever been the kind of woman who goes on a cruise, either. Maybe it was time for some changes in her life, starting with her views on casual sex between consenting adults.

Colin is walking a deadly line between burnout, rage, a desperate need to bring Garret Palmer to justice, and an inexplicable attraction for a woman that he knows is far too innocent for the likes of him. She deserves a man who hasn’t been permanently tainted by decades of living with the scum of the earth. Even if he could somehow convince himself that taking her to bed wouldn’t make him even more of a bastard than he already was, there was no way he could pretend that openly pursuing her wouldn’t torpedo his chances of bringing Garret Palmer down. Will he be willing to let Garret slip through his fingers if it means he can have Claire, or will he sacrifice her to put an end to one of the largest drug and weapon pipelines between Mexico and the US?

He is so insistent that I keep him a secret. “How could we ever have a life together?” I asked myself. Then the real issue: you don’t even know if he would want to marry you if the circumstances allowed for it. Aren’t you getting way ahead of yourself?”

Love can happen in the most improbable place at the most improbable time under the most improbable circumstances.

Colton’s Dilemma (Shadow Breeds)

by Dara Nelson

They live among the shadows, these ancient breeds. Older by far than most vampires, werewolves, witches and other creatures in existence, they choose to stay in the shadows, to live among their own ancient kind, to not socialize with the younger, undisciplined generations of their own kind who would seek them out for power, for control, for their own agendas. So, these ancients live in the shadows. And for Colton Renner, those shadows were just fine, until Tess Hamilton came along. Captured and savagely attacked, but not bitten, by werewolves, somehow she escapes during the night and stumbles through the woods, ending up on Colton’s doorstep, bringing us to Colton’s first dilemma: should he let them finish her off or bring her in and help her. Once he makes the decision to help, he invites the wrath of the werewolves into his quiet vampiric life. But is she more than just a damsel in distress? As he quickly develops feelings for Tess from a heart that he thought had been irreparably broken, he learns that she is also a witch. Things begin to unravel making him question her true feelings. Does she love him? Does he truly love her or is this a spell she has cast on him? Who will survive the outcome of Colton’s Dilemma?



The Delivery Cut

by Joseph Rakowski

“I am not an unreliable pimp or cracked out drug dealer. I am not a billionaire from some foreign country, or from wherever, who does not care where his product ends up. I am not a smuggler, pusher, indirect seller, buyer, middler, lookout, or anything in between. I don’t cross borders. I am a new addition to the drug world hierarchy. I am simply and responsibly the man who brings you your needs in a suit, with a smile, and a touch of customer service.”

The Delivery Cut is a literary-contemporary fiction that follows the protagonist, James Young, through a twisted and turned path at self-realization.

James Young is under pressure to be just like any other ordinary young adult who is seeking higher education to achieve a postmodern American, accomplished and prideful, nine to five. Despite his set path as an incoming law student, James accompanied by a slew of alcohol and chain-smoked cigarettes awaits a future meltdown. Surrounded by a fog of commonplace people who strive for unoriginal lives and others who have found them, James searches for a flash of inspiration to discover life as more than a mere existence.

Within the first 24-hours of his law school orientation, he finds himself under the watchful eye of an egotistical law professor and face to face with a mysterious Frenchman’s beguiling proposition for a story. The anarchical Frenchman joined by a misanthropic brute, leads James through a revolution of the South Florida drug market, positioning him as a new addition to the drug world hierarchy. As he struggles to mentally shed from his old life, James takes refuge in a local Cuban Coffee shop where he befriends its regretful owner for advice.

Leaving his prior self behind, James is soon engulfed by the “who’s who” of upper class clients wanting their drugs brought to their downtown night scenes, high-rise luxury condominiums, local offices, and island mansions. Armed with reliable transportation, three dress suits, a tight schedule, and pushed by the fear of never having lived, James becomes the man who brings them their needs with a smile and a touch of customer service.

When violent competition for the market heats up around him, James in a final climax must choose between death and what is giving him a newfound sensation of being alive.

“This is one of those books that “haunt” you. The kind of book that leaves you feeling like you lived it, and you still feel it for days to come…It is so beautifully written, and affected me deeply.

Wicked King Dick

by Malachi Stone

Here’s a nostalgia piece, my personal foray into Jean
Shepherd Americana.WICKED KING DICK refers to Richard
Milhous Nixon, the principal bogeyman of my college years, who you may recall
served as POTUS until he resigned in ignominy on August 9, 1974–coincidentally
enough, on my birthday. During the George W. era from time to time I found myself
wishing we had Tricky Dick
back again–he was the political comeback kid in the sixties–but Mister Death
was determined to keep his blueeyed boy.

I admit I was thinking of Thomas Wolfe’s YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN when I named
the main character Johnny Wolfe. Since I was a boy I have always been
fascinated with the carny life. At the ages of fifteen and sixteen I was
privileged to have been selected to work twelve hours at a stretch to set up
carnival rides for the princely sum of five dollars cash money. Since then I
had always wanted to write a novel about a boy who runs away with the carnival.

WICKED KING DICK is the story of Johnny
Wolfe, a kid from a small town in the American Midwest who goes away to college
and falls hopelessly in love with Beth Trajan, a goddess from the Olympus known
as the Northern Suburbs of Chicago. Beth cannot be won without a full-fledged
commitment to her student radical activities, so Johnny–more Dobie Gillis than
Che Guevara–joins the Movement on campus. His devotion to Beth gets him
expelled and into full-time bomb-making. He masquerades as a graduate student
in the chemistry department and piddles around pretending to make bombs, trying
to delay the inevitable.

The bombing of the ROTC building is supposed to cause mere property damage.
When a man dies in the explosion, Johnny goes on the run for thirty-three
years. (Johnny is a Christ figure, get it?) Johnny becomes an itinerant
evangelist and hooks up with a carnival, which brings him back to his old home
town and to Maggie, the girl he left behind. But will his past allow him to
truly go home again?

It’s Monday night in New York City, and Rob is drunk, fired again from the latest in a long line of menial jobs. Rob is far from Ireland, his home, and far from the murder that drove him to run away. Rob is young, smart, funny and a complete mess, edging closer to Irish alcoholic cliché. All Rob has are his friends, Fitz, the big fat loudmouth, and Tim, the former college football star.

Despite her best efforts, Rob meets Rachel, a beautiful college student with a savage charm and a bruised past life of her own, who will change everything for him.

A forced meeting with his brother reveals a reason to go back to a home and a life Rob has been trying to erase. Faced with the prospect of missing his best childhood friend’s wedding, Rob decides to return to Ireland and to face up to the demons that drove him away.

Set between New York and Dublin over a week in 1998, Killer Whale is a story of redemption and romance, friendship and family. Fast paced and funny, tender and exciting, Killer Whale is young adult drama, which asks if we can ever truly know another person, and if so, how do we remember them? As the person they always were or the terrible act that they perpetrated?

Everything You Need to Know About the Count of Monte Cristo

by Charles River Editors

*Explains the major themes, characters, and plot.
*Includes an introductory note on Alexandre Dumas and his book.
*Includes a summary and analysis of all 117 chapters.

“I have once again found a man ready to hack at another’s self-respect with a hatchet, but who cries out when his own is pricked with a pin.” – Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Playwright, novelist, travel writer, journalist, entrepreneur – it is hard to place Alexandre Dumas in one category alone, as his genres almost always influence one another. But most scholars and critics agree that he is clearly one of the greatest adventure novelists of all time. Responsible for such well-known titles The Count of Monte Cristo, The Corsican Brothers, The Man in the Iron Mask, and perhaps one of the most iconic and recognizable novels ever written, The Three Musketeers, the name Dumas has become synonymous with stories of drama, adventure, travel and intrigue featuring exceptional characters, exotic locales and fascinating journeys, both literal and figurative. His works have engaged readers all over the world, and been printed in over 100 languages.

The Count of Monte Cristo is now a staple of Western classrooms and has been made into many movies. The epic tale takes place in France, Italy, the Mediterranean Islands and the Levant from 1815-1838, spanning a generation of characters and growth. The book’s protagonist, Edmund Dantès, is one of the most famous characters in literature, and the story follows him as he runs the gamut of emotions. Even today, the story’s themes of hope, justice, vengeance and mercy fascinate readers of all ages.

The Count of Monte Cristo is entertaining for adults but also accessible for children, which is why so many schools assign it as reading. Of course, the novel is as lengthy as it is great, so it’s hard to remember all the important stuff. Everything You Need to Know About the Count of Monte Cristo is a comprehensive guide that provides a synopsis, a description of the characters, and a summary and analysis of every chapter. You can use this as a guide while you read or as a way to brush up on everything you once knew and since forgot.

Thank Sophia for Sam

by R.D. Power

The concept of heroism has long since become debased, but there are still true heroes in the world who exhibit remarkable bravery and strength of character, who regularly put their lives on the line to save another human life, and who do so without recognition or exceptional reward. Medevac crews in Afghanistan are occasionally featured on a TV news report or in a newspaper article, but by and large are ignored by the mainstream media and by the public. But pay attention to those occasional reports and it becomes clear how special these people are. They fly through bullets and missiles, fog and dust, mountains and deserts to get to a casualty and then run through bullets and step across IEDs to get to the patient, and toil in 130 degree heat or a 10 below deep freeze to stabilize the patient and transport him back to the field hospital alive, which they do 95% of the time on average. It is an extraordinary group of men and women who have heretofore gone all but overlooked in fiction.

A modern-day MASH, “Thank Sophia for Sam” is the story of a medevac crew based in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. They are responsible for medical evacuation support for the most dangerous areas of the country, including the dreaded Korengal Valley. The mountainous terrain is perilous, the weather often making it more treacherous, and the likelihood that their red crosses will attract bullets and missiles is high. Yet, none of that stops them in their zeal to save lives, not only of soldiers, but of civilians and even enemy fighters. The story is fictional, but includes many rescues based on actual missions as reported by various media outlets.

Flight crew antics – some also based on true accounts of medevac units – and a love story serve to develop the characters and story between missions. The four-person crews work in close quarters with a great deal at stake and become very close. The two central characters are Samantha Hawkins, the co-pilot, and Daniel Beaton, the flight medic. He aggressively pursues her throughout his posting in country. The heartache that flight medics have to endure in this war is almost beyond belief; for Daniel, Samantha represents a crucial escape, counterbalancing the pervasive pain, death and horror with love, life and hope for the future. She, however, is forbidden to have a relationship with him because he is an enlisted man, and she falls in love with a flight surgeon. Daniel fights for her heart, mostly with a searing wit, but it is a losing battle.

To compound his problems, he develops diabetes during his second summer in Jalalabad, which, if the army finds out about it, will ruin his plans for the future. Added to Samantha’s consistent rejections and the enormous stress of the job, this overwhelms the young man. He suffers a breakdown and is sent home.

Once home with the war and the army behind them, they both have trouble adjusting to normal life, which is dull and frivolous by comparison. There the tables are turned, with Samantha pursuing Daniel, but Daniel wary of her. She needs him to help her settle back into normal life; he too needs her, but is afraid to trust her after a year and a half of rejection in Afghanistan.

Is there any hope they will end up together?

(Please note that because the story is largely set in the army during war, it has substantial violence, vulgar language and sexual innuendo.)



Baseball Ethan and His Little League Dreams

Your child will love to read and follow along with Ethan and his baseball adventures as the Little League season starts.

Ethan loves to play baseball and does so every chance he gets. This year was a big year for him because he was moving up in the organization. He was now in the league that allowed the kids to pitch and bases to be stolen.

In this book, Ethan shows kids of all ages that when they set their mind to something and stay dedicated to it, they can succeed at their dreams. Ethan joins his two best friends Jason and Joey in this book, both of which also have their own dreams to succeed at baseball, and together they set off to be picked by one of the best coaches in the organization. The sheer thought of being coached by the man that coached the championship team last year was enough to make Ethan and his friends believe that this would be a great year of baseball for them.

“Baseball Ethan and His Little League Dreams,” is a great book to help your child want to read.

The Malthus Conspiracy

by Danielle Uidam

In 2011 the world population hit seven billion. Fourteen thousand babies are born every hour. By 2045 the population is predicted to hit nine billion. Can our planet cope?

In 1798 Economist Reverend Thomas Malthus thought not. His work ‘An Essay on the Principal of Population’ predicted that population growth would outpace our ability to obtain resources, resulting in a global epidemic of famine that would destroy society unless curbed.

Fast forward to 2012. College students Dean Adams and his best friend Felix Pye, unwittingly stumble across the greatest conspiracy in history, and by doing so sign a death warrant. They are forced to run as powerful, high society members of a 200 year old secret Malthusian League attempt to silence them.

The league will stop at nothing to continue its Malthusian cause. Their purpose? To curb population growth and ensure Malthus’ predictions for economic ruin do not come true.

With the aide of detective Isabella Mercena, Dean and Felix go head to head against the evil forces as they attempt to expose the league’s sinister plans to control population. Will they survive to tell the tale and tell it before the next wave of disaster is unleashed on mankind?

Ishmael Stockton, named by his father after the narrator of Moby Dick (though he has never read it), finds himself swept by circumstance into working for a vast, faceless hospital patient financing corporation.

A ridiculously incompetent boss, an understanding wife, and a lifelong friend who is the Queequeg to Ishmael’s well… Ishmael, are just a few of the hilarious cast of characters who drive the mayhem onward. When a cult leader steals one of Ishmael’s business cards from his briefcase on a flight from Portland to Denver, all hell breaks loose. His life spirals out of control and just as Ishmael contemplates going on a cross-country crime spree, redemption is delivered from a surprising source. Anyone who has ever encountered the wrong kind of job challenges, had conflict with their boss, or felt crushed by the machine will relate to this story – full of crazy characters, bizarre circumstances, and hilarious situations.

The Home is a front for a sex slavery ring run by Centaur, a man with a secret he’ll kill to protectâ??and has. Beautiful Meghan Dacey, who knows her name only as “nummer twenny-three,” escapes from the Home hours before her scheduled execution. Centaur knows that Meghan is the last living soul who has heard his secret and could bring about his downfall. Meghan’s cognitive skills improve rapidly under the care of Dr. Jeffrey Sterling and with the protection of Agent Alex Hunter of the FBI, and Centaur must eliminate her before she can decipher and share what she knows.

As the hunt widens, Centaur becomes the ultimate puppeteer, targeting his prey from afar. Agent Hunter and Dr. Sterling must not only protect Meghan from Centaur’s traps, but also ferret out his deadly puppets, some of whom may be hidden among their own people.

What follows is a massive game of hide and seek that stretches halfway around the globe. Only this game won’t end with the seeker playfully announcing, “tag, you’re it!”

O Human Child

by Walter Donway

“Come away! O human child…” â??William Butler Yeats.
***
When Jan and Victoria DeVries begin their summer on a rented farm in the wild Catskill Mountains with their daughter, Betsy, and Freddy, the toddler with the “elfin” look of Williams Syndrome, they fall in love with the sunny meadows and the wild horses… but they are unprepared for their new neighbors.
***
Ashlyn Tate seems a woman of more than human beautyâ??almost enchanted. Stranger still, her daughter, Alena, is only 12â??or is supposed to beâ??but is already arresting in her sensual allure. When Alena gets a look at Freddy, and murmurs, “He is the most beautiful child I have ever seen,” the first slight shadow passes across the sun. From then on, the shadows of the beautiful, dark Catskill Mountains become deeper, more mysterious, and more frightening.

But enchantment is as irresistible as it is dangerous. When Janâ??the artist who looks like the lanky, handsome cowboy he once wasâ??meets Ashlyn, Victoria is unsettled by the attraction between them.

But her jealousy is forgotten when Freddy goes missing. And the terror lurking in the majestic gorges, hidden lakes, and ancient trails that begin almost in their backyard has only begun reach out for them.

Be My Yoko Ono (an OddRocket title)

by Phoebe Kitanidis

Meet Will and Tiger. They’re smart, geeky, unconventional, and in an open relationship that’s on the verge of breaking down… and breaking up.

THE CUCKOOS OF BATCH MAGNA

When Sir Humphrey Miles Pinkerton Strange, 8th baronet and huntin’ shooting’ and fishin’ squire of the village of Batch Magna in the Welsh Marches, departs this world for the Upper House (as he had long vaguely thought of it, where God no doubt presides in ermine over a Heaven as reassuringly familiar as White’s or Boodle’s), what’s left of his decaying estate passes, through the ancient law of entailment, to distant relative Humph, an amiable, overweight short-order cook from the Bronx.

Sir Humphrey Franklin T Strange, 9th baronet and squire of Batch Magna, as Humph now most remarkably finds himself to be, is persuaded by his Uncle Frank, a small time Wall Street broker with an eye on the big time, to make a killing by turning the sleepy backwater into a theme-park image of rural England – a vacation paradise for free-spending US millionaires.

But while the village pub and shop, with the lure of the dollar in their eyes, put out the Stars and Stripes in welcome, the tenants of the estate’s dilapidated houseboats are above any consideration of filthy lucre and stand their ground for tradition’s sake â?¦ and because they consider eviction notices not to be cricket.

Each disgruntled faction sees the other as the unwelcome cuckoo in the family nest.

So, led by randy pulp-crime writer Phineas Cook, and Lt-Commander James Cunningham DSO, DSC and Bar, RN (ret) – a man with a glass eye for each day of the week, painted with scenes from famous British naval victories and landscapes that speak of England – the motley crew run up the Union Jack and battle ensign and prepare to engage.



Voyage of the Last Crusader

by Barry G. White

Voyage of the Last Crusader is a gripping story of crusader battles and seafaring adventure to the unknown corners of the medieval world.

Set with geographic and historic accuracy in England, Arabia and tropical oceans along the sea route of the ancient Spice Trade, this is a fictional but feasible story of young Lord William, just fifteen, who fought alongside Prince Edward in the Last Crusade of 1271. We are with him on his long sea voyage to the Holy Land and with him in his Crusader battles, his life as a privileged slave in a royal household in Arabia, his sea-faring adventures in search of the fabled Spice Islands, his shipwreck on the shores of the Great South Land, and his return from the other side of the world.

Actual characters with key roles to play are Crusade leader Prince Edward of England, Muslim leader Sultan Baybars of Egypt, and Admiral Zheng He, commander of China’s Dragon Fleet. These major figures of history are described accurately, along with their deeds.

This story for ten to sixteen-year-old boys of imagination was written by a grandfather who once was such a boy himself.



Once And Then Again

by T. Scott McLeod

HOW MANY LIVES HAVE YOU LIVED?

A child, an adolescent, a man. A student, a cadet, a beat cop. A homicide detective, a husband, a father. And now a widower, and a father who had lost his child.

So many different lives.

The pain of it, the images, I don’t want to see them again, but there they are: how I imagine it happened. What I imagine it was like. Putting them together, because this is what I do. I’ve seen it before, I know, and you always think it’s going to be someone else, you never think it’s going to be someone you know. You think the odds are too far against it. You tell yourself, things like demographics. Areas. But anything, can happen, anywhere. And odds are odds because things do happen to people.

Isabelle is on the swing. I am pushing her. â??Isabelle’ because she is, is a beautiful. It’s an idyllic moment: the sun shining, her golden hair streaming back. How old would she be, in that memory? How many times had that moment occurred: me, pushing her on a swing? In my mind she is five years old, six years old. Somewhere between four and eight, maybe even ten. I can’t choose an age. Her age changes, shifts in my mind, when I try to see her. How old are you? Where did you go? It’s like a pain in my heart which I shut my eyes to feel more deeply. This loss, my daughter, gone.

Once, and then again: to love again. How could you want something and not want it at the same time? Why was it my fate to lose everyone I love?

“I lost my daughter,” he says to himself, “to a homicide.”

Could he bring himself to love again? Would he find his daughter’s killer? What new life would he create for himself? Life did go on. Once, and then again. It just kept going on and on, and he felt like he’d lived so many different lives now.

Riding this mysterious journey which is fate, in his search for redemption, justice, and forgiveness Thomas McAllister finds himself being dragged into the darkness which resides in his own soul.

Strangers

by David K. Hulegaard

“Loved it, loved it, loved it! Read a bit like Alfred Hitchcock Presents, which was both surprising and delightful.” – Tony Healey, author of Burial and Dark Orb

Humanity can be ugly.

In California, Boyd returns to the site of an old covered bridge to claim a promised message from his deceased lover. In Oregon, Matt sets out on a cross-country business trip that takes an unexpected turn upon his arrival in Illinois. In Washington, an older, wiser Lucca looks back and recounts the trip to New Orleans in which he temporarily became a father.

Strangers is a collection of eight sublimely twisted short stories from the mind of Sci-Fi/Paranormal author David K. Hulegaard. Each story explores the encounter of strangers forced into interaction by the confined space of train travel. Some will find commonality and friendship. Some will find compassion and understanding. But one thing is for certain: They will all find something unexpected.

All aboard.



Gone to Mums

by Barry Simiana

“What can you say about a twenty five year old girl who died?” With those words, Erich Segal opened his tear-jerker novella Love Story, and a film (and cultural) phenomenon was born. “Gone to Mums” doesn’t allow a dry eye in the room. Told from Ray’s perspective, it is a most improbable love story, set among the orchards and migrant farmers of rural Australia. He meets Kelly when she beats the crap out of him for trying to steal fruit from her roadside farm stand. Ray and Kelly do fall in love, but their romance is anything but conventional. If Love Story taught us that love was never having to say sorry, “Mums” reminds us that time doesn’t heal wounds, it just covers them over with scar tissue.
Steve Cohen, Next Stop Hollywood: Short Stories Bound for the Screen

Praise for Gone to Mums

The stories are so “cinematic” you will find yourself choosing a cast within the opening paragraphs.
There’s the unlikely, heart tuggy love story Gone to Mum’s which could star the next Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe.
Off the Shelf with David J Foster 23/05/2007

“Gone to Mum’s” by Barry Simiana is a richly detailed and poignant story of missed chances, stolen moments, heartbreak and redemption. Simiana’s narrator takes readers along on his journey of self-discovery amid the rugged backdrop of Australia. The author paints emotion on his canvas, stunning the reader with the simplicity and honesty of his prose.

CEREAL (Short Story)

by Steve Jova

A wren flew on my kitchen window one day while I was having my cereal. It chirped and fluttered its wings about, showing off and making a whole lot of noise. I shooed it away, I had my bank teller job to attend to. My life was boring, I know, but I had my routine. That wren came back the next morning and interrupted again. I gave it some seeds, I don’t know why, and it started chirping a melody! A mangled smile formed on my face and a strange feeling rose in my chestâ?¦



Daughter of the Bering Sea (Bering Sea Trilogy)

by O. L. Gregory

Jessie Taylor has her life all planned out. She’s going to be a cook on her family’s fishing vessel out on the Alaskan waters. Everything she’s ever done, from the time she was twelve, has led up to her claiming her own spot in the Taylor fishing chronicles upon The Sea Hag.

Her father, however, has other plans for his little girl. First off, he isn’t going to just hand over a spot on the boat to her. She’s going to have to prove herself first.

When Jessie finally turns eighteen, she begins trying to balance her own ambitions with her father’s ambitions for her. She is put through her paces as she begins working for any crew that will hire her to cook for them. She takes wheel watches, works on deck, and ends up getting stitched back together after suffering the backlash of the Bering Sea.

Even though she accidentally begins a war between two captains and ends up getting kicked off one of the boats, her attitude and antics help her to garner a reputation for spoiling captains and keeping the crewmen on their toes.

After two years of watching his daughter bounce from ship to ship, he lets her come aboard as the cook. The future Jessie has been working for is suddenly hers.

But then one night, while on board The Sea Hag, the Bering Sea delivers a blow that leaves half the crew injured. With both her father and uncle out of commission, it’s up to Jessie to captain the ship into safety and deliver the crew back to shore alive. She’s already buried one parent, and now she may lose another. Can she keep it together? Or will facing her worst fear send her into a mental tailspin, and shut down her ability to reason?

Drawn to Todd like a magnet, Natalie gives him her friendship, her love, and her body. Even when she’s tempted by gorgeous, healthy schoolmate Alex, Natalie’s desire to love and care for Todd pushes her to see how far love can go in spite of the potential for death of the relationship â?? and death of the one she loves.



THE COOL JOURNEY, The younger years (THE COOL BROTHERS ADVENTURES)

by G.W ELKINGTON

“There are ’71′ A5 pages (Including photos) to this book, not the estimated ’27′ that is stated.”

(THESE SHORT STORIES â??THE COOL BROTHERS ADVENTURES’ HAVE DERIVED FROM AN ORIGINAL SCREEN PLAY WRITTEN INTENTIONALLY FOR TV/FILM PRODUCTIONS AND AMENDED FOR PUBLICATION TO BOOK FORM)

THE COOL JOURNEY, The younger years; Number 1 – 10 of the continuing short stories.

This book is a part of the Cool Brothers Adventures, which consists of ten continuing short stories that are based on and around a collection of gritty characters in a comedy caper that will bring these unethical band of brothers and their everyday issues to life, and as we follow their ventures throughout until their final testing showdown which will declare if they will become the men they always dreamt they would be?. A boy’s to men adventure. This all begins and is initially set in a hard-working, mining village in the West Country during the mid-80s known as â??Redruth’

From the mid-80s, due to the trading empires that were being built globally, it was actually becoming cheaper to import the minerals than to mine it locally, resulting in Redruth taking the hit and rapidly losing so much of its wealth. Unfortunately, the majority of the miners and their families had no other choice but to immigrate abroad to such places as America, Australia and South Africa where their mining skills were highly desirable and respected.

Now with the closure of many of the British mines during this period, the country went through many significant changes as well as a financial decline, moreover, facing the beginning of the Falklands conflict.

With Margaret Thatcher currently in power at number 10 Downing Street, the country had not faced any form of conflict since World War II and this â??Iron Lady’ knew it was paramount that this once strong, self-sufficient nation stood its ground again ensuring that they took on this new and potentially overwhelming challenge alone, furthermore, without any outside help this time.

This first short story invites you to join the journey from the start of these three notorious young boys who commit to an unbreakable pact, an oath to become â??somebody’ in life and break free from their town’s hardship; with their way of life about to alter and change right in front of their very eyes. These paths they choose to lead will change them forever, hopefully for the better, or they risk becoming nobodies! Which is just not on the cards! But I guess in this world, they’re not the only ones dealing from the bottom of the pack!

POINT OF INTEREST

Even though all of these characters in my stories are created by me, their characteristics are all genuine and are of actual people that I have worked with and still know now.

Learn more about the upstart Magpies and their foul-mouthed manager as they fight for the Northern League title in the second of the three volumes of the “Hack” trilogy.

And when more of the puzzle is revealed during another jaw-dropping cliffhanger, ask yourself: is a man entitled to his secrets? Or will they slowly, inevitably eat him away from the inside?

by Tahlia Newland

Lancashire Hotpot Loves Welsh Rarebit

by Ryan Thomas

This is an ADULT story and is NOT for children.

Jake Tempest, an unknown and slightly unhinged indie author with an unhealthy passion for military weapons and a tenuous grip on reality falls for up-and-coming Welsh writer Morwenna Midnight when they meet via an online writers’ forum.

Fantasy turns to obsession when he sees the garden gnome on the cover of her soon-to-be-published novel as his only rival for her affections. Throw in a cruise missile, a handful of clay sheep, long-distance-lust, and things can only go one way – completely tits-up.

Dead Next Tuesday

by John P Gibson

Ed Porteneau is a nerdy 28-year-old who lives an uninspiring life in a rundown apartment in a suburb of Seattle. He works as a Produce Manager in a general store, for a boss he despises. He has a best friend who beats him hands-down in the nerdiness stakes, and his social life consists of playing on his Xbox, visits to comic book stores, and daily phone calls from his overbearing mother.
Not so different to many other nerds his age.

There is one major difference though, and this is that Ed knows when he is going to die.

He is given seven days’ notice and he decides to make the best of the time he has left. He needs a plan and creates for himself a â??bucket list’ – things the must do before he kicks the bucket -consisting of seven highly ambitious tasks. One for each day he has left.

During the following few days, as he attempts to complete his list, Ed finds himself in one highly unusual situation after another. Some thrilling, some scary, some funny, and some downright embarrassing.

Is there any way Ed can complete his list on time?

Whatever the outcome, he is guaranteed the week of his life.

Dead Next Tuesday is a funny, warm story which will appeal to nerds and non-nerds alike.
Readers can associate with Ed’s occasional lack of confidence and frustrations at his quiet, uneventful life.
He is a thoroughly likeable character and anyone reading the book will be willing him on to complete his bucket list and make a success of his last week on Earth.

All studies, and there have been many, show that more and more people around the world are opting for healthier, plant-based lifestyles and that smoothies have become intrinsic parts of their daily intake of food.

There is nothing mysterious about this trend because healthcare providers, scientists and nutritional experts are showing, time and time again, that eating natural plants (fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, beans and such) results in healthy body weight which in turn results in improved health by improving the workings of digestive tracts, boosting immune systems, enhancing cardiovascular health, strengthening bones and teeth, and vitalizing the skin.

All the recipes in this green smoothie recipe book are quick and easy to prepare and they all incorporate ingredients that are powerhouses of nutritional treasures that are low in caloric value and fats but high in dietary fiber, rich in imperative vitamins and essential minerals with antioxidants, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.

In this latest green smoothie book of hers, Ms. Getty has compiled 50 of her all time favorite green smoothie recipes alongside which she included amazing pictures of the incredible plant ingredient. But that is not all! Her introductory chapter explains all about drinkable foods and dispels the confusion about smoothies. Then her last chapter provides a comprehensive list of ingredients and their respective caloric counts which will help readers determine exactly how many calories are included in each and every smoothie they ingest.

Here is the breakdown of the chapters in this book:

- Chapter 1: Drinkable Foods
- Chapter 2: Chapter 2: Green Smoothie Recipes for Daily Diet, Cleanse, Detox & Weight Loss
- Chapter 3: List of Caloric Values for Green Smoothie Ingredients

I’ve peeked through the book and tried out most of the mouthwatering recipes within it. Now I can wholeheartedly recommend Hanna Getty’s “Green Smoothie Recipes: The Daily Diet, Cleanse & Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss Book” for anyone who truly values his or her health and most favorable fitness of the body and mind.

Atypical fitness guru Michelle Pearl has a message for all those who have suffered with ongoing weight problems: “You are not weak, losing weight has nothing to do with willpower, and you really can be happier, healthier and imperfectly fit.” The foreword for the second edition of this well-received book was written by Kai Hibbard, the 3rd season runner-up contestant on NBC’s The Biggest Loser.

REVIEWS:

“Finally! A book that actually says, you’re probably never going to look like those people on TV, and describes in detail how to be happier, healthier, and IMPERFECTLY fit. It’s about time! I, for one, agreed with this author from the word go.” Amy Lignor

“The author is a former large woman that did the ride on the up-and-down weight elevator several times before she was able to stabilize her weight at what is most likely her best fit. She acknowledges how difficult it has been; in many ways the greatest hurdle has been self-acceptance. Furthermore, you must do it all slowly, ignoring the people that are yelling, “Be quick, be quick!” 5 out of 5 stars Charles Ashbacher; Top Amazon.com Book Reviewer

“I can honestly say that I have never been more impressed with a weight loss book. Excellent book.” Sandra Heptinstall; Whispering Winds Book Reviews

HCG LOSE BIG AND FAST SUPER DIET – LOSE A POUND OF FAT A DAY FOR, LONG LIFE, GOOD HEALTH, DISEASE AVOIDANCE, FITNESS, WELLNES & VITALITY – HOW TO BOOK & GUIDE FOR SMART DUMMIES

by CHRISTOPHER DAVID ALLEN


By Kindle And Amazon #1 Best Selling Author

Christopher David Allen

A Concisely Written And Information Rich How To Book And Rapid Weight Loss Guide
No Nonsense – No Fluff – No Mindless Filler

Sad Truths About Diets & Weight Loss

More Than 85 Percent Of The USA Population Is Overweight Or Obese

Many Of The World’s Nations Are Not Far Behind

Many Young Children Are Fat & Obese

Likelihood For Being Overweight is Higher With Age

Odds For An Early Death Increase With Weight

These Are Shocking Realities!

This Diet Book Is For The 85%

Why The HCG Diet For Optimum Health & Fitness?

I have twice done the HCG Rapid Weight Loss Regimen so this book is based on genuine personal experience. I tell it like it is and the results are indeed phenomenal. I deliberately tried to cheat on this diet and can tell you what will happen if you cheat. I have a lot of tips to help you do the HCG regimen. This is NOT another book that blindly outlines the regimen.

You may wonder why I’ve done this twice? I lost a bit over a pound a day the first time to arrive at my ideal weight and that was great. A few months later, I broke a bone in my hand and had to undergo two surgeries. I lost the use of my hand for nearly a year and was forced into inactivity when I’m normally active. I gained about 2 pounds a month during my recovery but was not worried about the weight gain as I knew I could do the HCG regimen again. I refined the process and explored the limits of the HGC regimen the second time around and what I’ve learned can benefit newbies to HGC. My results were again about a pound a day and in 3 weeks, I was back to my ideal weight. The big caveat is that you cannot do any heavy exercise while on HGC. If you must do any heavy physical activity at your job, you will not be able to do HCG or you will have to take a few weeks off work. You will not be hungry or tempted to cheat thanks to the HGC … it’s TRUE!

ABOUT THE HCG RAPID WEIGHT LOSS REGIMEN

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat infertility in both men and women. Its weight-loss roots trace back to the early 1950′s, when British Endocrinologist A.T.W. Simeons realized that giving obese patients small regular doses of the hormone, helped them lose large amounts of fat without losing muscle. Simeons began touting HCG as a potent appetite suppressant. He claimed the hormone could blast fat in key trouble spots like the upper arms, stomach, thighs, and buttocks, while preserving muscle. The modern-day incarnation of the HCG regimen is largely as Simeons presented it.

With FDA approval and a 60-year track record of success, HCG is a well proven and safe substance.

The HCG rapid weight loss regimen consists of sublingual HCG drops put under your tongue 3-times a day in combination with a special diet. The regimen is easy to do at home. The only significant change to the regimen in 60 years is that today, you put the drops under your tongue three times a day with an eye dropper instead of expensive daily trips to a clinic for HCG injections. With HCG sublingual drops now readily available and a simple low calorie diet, the HCG rapid weight loss regimen is available to everyone. HCG is available over-the-counter and on the Internet without a prescription. You can purchase HCG as easily as you would a bottle of Aspirin. I’ve seen HCG on the shelf in the pharmacy area of Wally Mart for as little as $12.95.

What’s more, the cheaper and eco-friendly methods you’ll find in this guide are generally preferred whenever possible. We did this to ensure you don’t throw good money down the drain on high-end commercial products, when the solution was right in front of you all the time.

So, what do you need in order to keep your home spotless and your family safe and healthy? Everybody should have a healthy stock of laundry detergent (at least one mild, for delicate garments, and a heavy-duty one), two types of dish detergent (a non-abrasive and an abrasive detergent), stain remover, white vinegar, baking soda, washing soda, ammonia, bleach, rubbing alcohol, and an oven cleaner. Make sure you store these products away from the reach of children, since many are toxic.

Before we get into these cleaning tips, it’s important to learn how to use these items responsibly in order to protect yourself against accidents. For instance, bleach should never be combined with ammonia, as it releases toxic fumes. Many substances, such as kerosene or turpentine, are highly flammable. Oven cleaners are very effective on stains, but they’re also very damaging to your skin. Lye causes severe chemical burns, and should never come in contact with skin. Your closet of cleaning supplies should therefore also include several pairs of gloves, latex ones, but also a chemical-resistant pair, safety glasses, and clothing that cover your hands and legs completely, and a first-aid kit, just in case.

You also need a collection of sponges (soft and abrasive), brushes, paintbrushes, and wire brushes, rags and cloths – in particular micro-fiber, lint-free cloths, which can save you hours of work – mops and dusters, cotton swabs, and several buckets of different sizes. Do not forget to clean these items regularly; otherwise you’ll just be transferring germs to the cleaned objects!

Last but not least, there comes a time when you have to accept that an object is beyond rescue. Some spots that appear to be stains are in fact scratches or deep damage that cannot be removed. In other cases, the material is so delicate that any scrubbing will completely ruin the object. Finally, every cleaner has to admit that once in a while you come across a stain that simply beats the most advanced techniques in the world. There’s no shame in turning to professional help when you need it, and there’s no reason to sweat and scrub for hours when you’re dealing with an item that should have been replaced years ago.

In the end, the key to maintaining a spotless house is to combine patience and common sense. Be prepared to wash, rinse, repeat many times, but not to the point where you end up spending twenty hours a day with the mop and the sponge!

To Tame a Wild Heart

by L.B. Shire

Chancy Mallory is loyal to three things in her life: her horse Bowie, her parents and the Mallory Ranch.

Chancy is set on capturing a wild mustang colt to prove her worth to her father who believes the Mallory legacy died when he buried his three sons. When Nick Stone appears at the ranch, Chancy can’t fight the waves of change. She fears her father’s attentions are slipping out of her reach. And while before she thought only of horses and the ranch, her thoughts are now drifting to boys and kisses. Sweet kisses with Nick that is. Except he’s her rival, or is he?

Nick Stone wandered west to avoid the lackluster future his father devised for him inside a stuffy bank in Boston, not to fall in love. He craves the wide open spaces Oregon has to offer. Heʹs learned in his travels that he has a special gift with horses. Especially those that have been tossed aside by others: the rogues, and the unwanted. With this gift, he makes a name for himself at the Mallory Ranch and causes friction with the ranch owner’s daughter. Can he prove to Chancy he is a friend and not a foe? Can his gentle ways tame the ranch owner’s daughter’s wild heart?

History for Kids: The Illustrated Life of Amelia Earhart

by Charles River Editors

*Perfect for ages 7-9
*Includes pictures of Amelia and important people and places in her life.
*Includes Amelia’s most famous and inspiring quotes.
*Includes Amelia’s descriptions of her historic flights.
*Explains the theories of her disappearance.

“The stars seemed near enough to touch and never before have I seen so many. I always believed the lure of flying is the lure of beauty, but I was sure of it that night.” – Amelia Earhart

In Charles River Editors’ History for Kids series, your children can learn about history’s most important people and events in an easy, entertaining, and educational way. Pictures help bring the story to life, and the concise but comprehensive book will keep your kid’s attention all the way to the end.

During the early 20th century, groundbreaking technology revolutionized transportation both on the ground and in the sky, with new motors making automobiles and airplanes a reality in the 1910s. Around that same time, the feminist movement was underway in the United States, spearheaded by women seeking the right to vote, lobbying for the temperance movement, and trying to make their voices heard.

It was at that crossroads that flight pioneer Amelia Earhart found herself in 1919, the very year President Wilson and Congress were trying to shepherd through the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote. That year, Earhart was given a ride on a plane piloted by legendary air racer Frank Hawks, and as she recalled, “By the time I had got two or three hundred feet off the ground, I knew I had to fly.”

Earhart’s unbridled joy for flying was only occasionally abated by a lack of finances, and a recurring sinus issue, but throughout the 1920s she was one of the few women licensed to fly, and she set an altitude record of 14,000 feet for women in 1922. In 1928, Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, but she was disappointed that she had to do so as a passenger, complaining, “I was just baggage, like a sack of potatoes.”

Nevertheless, that trip made “Lady Lindy” the “Queen of the Air” in America, and Earhart was now the nation’s best known aviatrix. With her fresh face available for promoting everything from luggage to women’s clothing, Earhart was able to finance her own aviation and remain involved in promoting air travel and flying to skeptical Americans. In May 1932, Earhart finally made her solo flight across the Atlantic, for which she received the Distinguished Flying Cross from Congress, the Cross of Knight of the Legion of Honor from the French Government and the Gold Medal of the National Geographic Society from President Herbert Hoover.

By the mid-1930s, Earhart had set many altitude and distance records, but she wanted to attempt a circumnavigation of the world. After an ill-fated first attempt, Earhart and Fred Noonan set off on another attempt, creating one of the 20th century’s most enduring mysteries. Earhart and Noonan were to land on Howland Island, 1700 miles southwest of Hawaii, but radio transmissions ceased between the plane and authorities on the ground the morning of July 2, 1937. Earhart and Noonan had disappeared, never to be seen again, despite one of the nation’s largest and costliest manhunts.

Unfortunately, the speculation over exactly what happened to Earhart and the mystery of her disappearance have come to overshadow and obscure her many accomplishments. History for Kids: The Illustrated Life of Amelia Earhart looks at the theories attempting to explain her disappearance, but it also humanizes the woman whose love of flying propelled her to unprecedented heights among both the clouds and her countrymen. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events in her life, your kids will learn about Amelia Earhart like never before.

Memory Improvement Guide : Learn To Trigger Photographic Memory And Remember Everything Memory Improvement Techniques And Tips To Start Using In Days

by Abel Jones

Amazon Bestseller!

Here’s what readers are saying about this Memory Improvement Guide:

Reading this book has been a great help for me, especially when I’m studying for my finals. It has a lot of helpful tips on how I can improve my memory and critical thinking.“ – Frank D

Abel Jones has written a clear, concise book on memory techniques. Long ago my father taught me a few memory techniques, but I’ve forgotten them! This book taught me about grouping which I knew nothing about. It also has an excellent approach to other techniques.“   — M. Schramski

I tend to forget things right after I learn them and I end up just having to barely pass my exams just because of it. This book has improved that and I can remember more easily than when I did before. This book really does give you memory improvement and it doesn’t exaggerate on its claim.“ – Brad Hines

The memory is a very fascinating topic. There are a number of ways in which we can improve our memory so that we can recall the entire spectrum of our lives; our job, the routes we take to get to our different journeys, the names of the people around us, what we are studying in school, telephone numbers; information that is important to us both for the short term as well as for the long term. There is a term that is used for memory tool that is known as mnemonics which is a tool that we use in assisting us to recollect information that would not otherwise stick in our memory. With mnemonics we use association, imagination and location for mnemonics to operate properly. As it relates to association, this is to tool that we use to make the link between the things that are necessary for you to recall and also figuring a way in which to remember it.

About the Author:

Abel Jones has always been fascinated with how the mind works; particularly with how we are able to commit information to memory and how some things we cannot remember unless we do some fancy mental work so as to make the information stick in our mind. He was a very imaginative and creative child he therefore always found different ways in which to make up little jingles so as to remember what he needed to. He spent most of his teenage years trying find out the easiest ways in which to remember his school work as he found school to be very boring. He discovered that if he used visuals that he tended to recall this more easily and therefore he used his imagination and his visual ability to make things stick in his mind and to remember them readily to help him to not just tolerate high school but to do very well.

Hypothyroidism Diet Guide : The Complete Hypothyroidism Solution To Lose Weight Eat To Beat Hypothyroidism With A Healthy Diet

by Steven J Brown

The hypothyroidism condition is frequently known as underactive thyroid and describes a situation in which the body’s thyroid gland does not appear to be operating like it is designed to do. The thyroid gland is the part of the body that supplies hormones which permit the continuous and proper functioning of metabolism. When this is carried out, relevant hormones are transmitted to other body parts which are lower when compared to the required levels. This gives the body a challenge in being able to function in an efficient manner. Even though it is widely known as a condition that occurs in adults, there are cases of young people being affected.

Certain risk factors exist for hypothyroidism and the ones that are most popular include: being a female that is more than 50 years old, a male or female over 60 years or age, being treated with radioactive iodine, an anti-thyroid drug, too much radiation exposure and a relative that has close blood ties having a particular autoimmune disease.

You will find in this book information showing the relevance of diet in the maintenance of overall well-being along with health. Diet also helps in the balancing of thyroid hormones. It is equally important to change the diet to one that is beneficial as it is to see your doctor if you were told you have hypothyroidism.

About the Author: The author, Steven J. Brown, is no stranger to the condition of hypothyroidism as more than one person he knows, family member and close friend, have been affected by it. This is what prompted him to conduct his own extensive research for over several years and have come up with some quite relevant information that he has put together carefully and written for this book. Persons who are directly or even indirectly affected by the disease will certainly find this book by Steven J. Brown very beneficial. These people that he knew with the condition are among the estimated 3 – 5 % of the entire population that reports a kind of hypothyroidism.

With this book, Steven is aiming to provide readers with the necessary tools to fight the hypothyroidism disease. Individuals that do not directly experience the condition, however, are also given information for preventing the disease. His wish for readers that are going through the signs and symptoms of this sometimes frightening disease is to know that all is not lost and that with the proper diet, along with other important medical actions, he or she can bounce back and live a normal life. He also highlights the importance of prevention which is the best cure for hypothyroidism.



Paleo Diet Essentials:What is Paleo Diet, Benefits,Allowed Foods List and Foods To Avoid

by Russell Dawson

My name is Russell Dawson and I’ve been following the Paleo Diet for more than 15 months.It took me time to understand
the whole concept of “eating like a caveman” and why it’s supposed to be better for us.
At the beginning I was a little skeptical about giving up my dear pasta and bread.Anything that claims to “get you the
body you’ve always dreamed of in seven days or less” is a bunch of baloney that I simply don’t believe in. I had a hard
time imagining what I would be eating that didn’t include these two staples of my diet. Could I really survive on just the
caveman diet?
What Is The Paleo Diet Anyway?The Paleo Diet is proposed as the solution for the health problems of the modern man, as our
 Paleolithic ancestors, aside from being killed young in battle or as a hunter, lived long, healthy lives. They were robust,
 strong, active, energetic, tough, and powerful. Therefore, it is proposed that modern man look back to the ways and diet
of its Paleolithic ancestors and eat as they ate.
 Mankind has evolved for over 2 million years on the food found in nature. Meat, fish, vegeta
bles, fruits and nuts. What impact would it have on our health as modern-day humans if we tried to eat exclusively like our
ancestors?Would it really mean a leaner body and less illness?
My new eBook “Paleo Diet Essentials” will set you off on the right foot with this revolutionary diet and tell you about
the benefits .
Here is just a sample of what you will discover in this ground-breaking eBook:
- An in-depth analysis of what the Paleo diet really is
- What foods are allowed on the Paleo Diet and which foods you should avoid.
- Paleo Diet and Your Metabolism  
- How to start living the Paleo Diet Lifestyle.
- Simple Paleo Recipes.
- Plus much, much more

    An economy that works: Job creation and America’s future

    by James Manyika

    The United States faces a daunting challenge. At current rates of job creation, it will take until sometime in 2016 simply to get back to the level of employment before the recession. To actually regain full employment – finding work for the currently unemployed and accommodate 15 million entrants into the labor force this decade – the US economy will need to create 21 million jobs by 2020. Only under an optimistic scenario of job growth can this occur, according to this new report by the McKinsey Global Institute. It sheds new light on how companies use labor, where new jobs are likely to come from, and what conditions are needed to ensure robust and sustainable job creation. In addition to original research and scenario analysis, the report draws on interviews with human resources executives of major corporations and a survey of 2,000 business leaders.



    History for Kids: The Illustrated History of the Vikings

    by Charles River Editors

    *Perfect for ages 7-10
    *Includes pictures and illustrations
    *Explains Viking history, culture, religion, and exploration.
    *Includes a Table of Contents.

    In Charles River Editors’ History for Kids series, your children can learn about history’s most important people and events in an easy, entertaining, and educational way. Pictures help bring the story to life, and the concise but comprehensive book will keep your kid’s attention all the way to the end.

    Over the centuries, the West has become fascinated by the Vikings, one of the most mysterious and interesting European civilizations. In addition to being perceived as a remarkably unique culture among its European counterparts, what’s known and not known about the Vikings’ accomplishments has added an intriguing aura to the historical narrative. Were they fierce and fearsome warriors? Were they the first Europeans to visit North America? It seems some of the legends are true, and some are just that, legend.

    The commonly used term, Viking, for the trading and raiding peoples of Scandinavia, may have originated from Viken (the large bay leading to Oslo), or it may have come from the Old Scandinavian words vikingr (sea warrior) or viking (expedition over the sea). The people from the north were known in western Europe at the time as Northmen or Danes, in England as Danes or pagans and in Ireland as Finngall for those of Norwegian origin and Dubgall for those from Denmark. In the east, in Russia and in the Byzantine Empire, the Scandinavians were called Vaeringar or Varyags (Varangians) or Rus’, the latter perhaps derived from the name Roslagen, a province in Uppland in Sweden.

    The ubiquitous picture of the Vikings as horn-helmeted, brutish, hairy giants that mercilessly marauded among the settlements of Northern Europe is based on a smattering of fact combined with an abundance of prejudicial historical writing by those who were on the receiving end of Viking depredations. At the same time, much of the popular picture of the Vikings is a result of the romantic imagination of novelists and artists. For example, there is neither historical nor archaeological evidence that the typically red haired, freckled Norsemen entered battle wearing a metal helmet decorated with horns. This headgear was an invention of the Swedish painter and illustrator Johan August Malmström (1829 – 1901) and his work was so widely disseminated in popular books that the image stuck. Today the imaginary Viking helmet is an almost mandatory costume accessory in productions of Wagner’s opera Der Ring des Nibelungen, which is not about the Vikings at all. It seems the horned helmet evolved from an imaginary reinterpretation of genuine Viking images of a winged helmet that may have been worn by priests in Viking religious ceremonies.

    However, the Vikings’ reputation for ferocious seaborne attacks along the coasts of Northern Europe is no exaggeration. It is true that the Norsemen, who traded extensively throughout Europe, often increased the profits obtained from their nautical ventures through plunder, acquiring precious metals and slaves. Of course, the Vikings were not the only ones participating in this kind of income generation; between the 8th and the 11th centuries, European tribes, clans, kingdoms and monastic communities were quite adept at fighting with each other for the purpose of obtaining booty. The Vikings were simply more consistently successful than their contemporaries and thus became suitable symbols for the iniquity of the times.

    History for Kids: The Illustrated History of the Vikings comprehensively covers the culture and history of the Vikings, discussing everything from their religion to their way of life, in an attempt to separate fact from fiction. Along with pictures of Viking art and ruins, as well as historic art depicting the Vikings, your kids will learn about the Vikings like never before.

    Making Marriage Work with a Passive Aggressive Husband

    by Charlize Huntington

    Making marriage work is not easy especially when one of the spouses is suffering from a passive aggressive personality disorder. “Making Marriage Work with a Passive Aggressive Husband” is a story of a couple, Bernard and Martha, whose married lives had been on a rough path since day one. Martha never imagined her husband to be so irrational and hard to handle. There were times she thought of giving up and leaving him, but finally she found a better way out.

    This story is a case study of how to live with a passive aggressive man and help him overcome the passive aggressive behavior. The best way to make your marriage work is to abandon your selfishness and try not to put blame on your spouse. Your love and understanding can always help you overcome the problems; and it is a good practice to seek advice from marriage counselors and/or get help from therapists. This may take a lot of sacrifice at the beginning but the results will be worth your every single attempt.

    Hyundai and Kia Motors The Early Years and Product Development

    by Donald Southerton

    Hyundai and Kia Motors: The Early Years and Product Development by Donald G Southerton provides deep insights into the rise of the Korean car industry.

    From the 1960s to early 2000s, political and economic forces impacted the growth and development of the South Korean carmakers, including Hyundai and Kia Motors. In addition, the brands at times partnered for technology with Ford, Mazda, and Mitsubishi, along with world class designers like Giorgetto Giugiaro. Expanding rapidly the Korean brands soon looked to new international markets, including the U.S.

    Despite the failure of Kia Motors to survive the IMF Crisis, the merger with Hyundai led to integrated technology research, development, and manufacturing– not to mention the economies of scale needed for the Korean automaker to compete globally with industry heavyweights such as Toyota, Ford, GM, and VW.

    Car models discussed including the Kia’s Brisa, Pride, Sephia, Sportage, and Rio along with Hyundai’s Pony, Excel and Santa Fe.

    Dogs & Diabetes: Symptoms, Causes, and Care

    by Alec Sheppard

    Is your dog consuming lots of water…more than you think is normal? Eating too much? Frequently urinating? He might have diabetes. Sugar diabetes, more specifically known as canine diabetes, is a common disease to dogs. It is a hormonal disorder that affects dogs of ages 5 to 9.

The ratio of female to male infected with the disease is 3:1.

    This book addresses the most conspicuous symptoms of diabetes in dogs, the main causes, and how to effectively treat it.

    Reviewer comments:

    Adult ADHD / Adult ADD (Raina’s Story): Follow My Journey to Finding ADD / ADHD Strategies and Ultimately – Success

    by Raina Anderson

    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder doesn’t have to hold you back or slow you down!

    While you may not have the best attention span, you’re probably one of the most creative and energetic people you know. With the right tools you can stay focused, get on track, and manage everything from housework to homework. Believe it or not, ADHD can even be an asset in the right job or situation. By being honest with yourself about your own strengths and limitations, it’s possible to get organized, be on time, and even be successfully self-employed.

    I have had obvious signs of ADHD since early childhood, but I made good grades through high school. My parents always said they didn’t want me labeled or medicated, and so my disorder was ignored. The change in structure from grade school to university life left my ADHD unmanageable. I finally sought help when I was so distracted I could no longer read a book or watch television.

    While the right medication has made a huge difference in my ability to focus, I also use many other tools to help manage my life and keep track of everything. Alarms, sticky notes, and my smartphone help me remember appointments and whether I’ve left something in the oven. From finding my car keys to remaining successfully self-employed, I have a solution for every problem.

    Read my story to see how I’ve overcome ADHD adversity, and the ways in which I have actually made it become an ASSET in my life!

    Note: You can get three compelling stories (including this one) in one discounted volume book called, “Adult ADD / Adult ADHD: Three Authors’ Inspiring Stories of Struggles, Strategies and Successes (Vol. 1)” in the Amazon Kindle store.



    Love Should Not Hurt

    by Charlize Huntington

She received a request from her best friend Rachel to attend a workshop on domestic violence as a speaker and soon found herself sharing how she was able to make it through the challenges of an abusive relationship. She was hesitant to do so at first, but she made a decision to give in to her best friend’s request not only for herself, but for the women who needed to hear her story.

    This story is definitely a must-read not only for women but also for everyone else out there who agrees that nobody deserves living a life enduring physical and emotional abuse from an abusive relationship. It shows the reality of what leads relationships to being abusive and how it can affect a person’s sense of self-esteem. Most of all, it teaches that experiencing loss from an abusive relationship should never be the reason for someone to lose faith and trust in one’s self and in others.

    The Secrets to Healthy Aging: Reverse the Signs of Aging at Any Age (Nourished Minds Guidebooks)

    by Nikole Seals

    Would you believe me if I told you that by simply making a few changes to your lifestyle and the foods you eat, you could look and feel younger, minimize the need for medical intervention and live longer? Would that convince you to make the investment in your health today? It should.

    The Order of Harry Potter: Literary Skill in the Hogwarts Epic

    by Colin Manlove

    What makes the Harry Potter books so readable? Are they as Christian as is often said? Is Hogwarts real, or did Harry Potter dream his whole story? These are some of the questions explored by Colin Manlove in this dazzling new study, which looks at the Hogwarts books in terms of their readability, their literary value and their many meanings. Here you will find chapters on how much they owe to Christian fantasy and to alchemy; on what, compared to Enid Blyton’s ‘Fives’ books, makes them page-turners; on the consequences of their interest in magic and imagination; on their love of change; and on the ordering of each book and the whole series through recurrent motifs and ideas. With these approaches, rather than simply selecting those few parts of the texts that support a theory, Colin Manlove is able to talk about everything in the Harry Potter books, from the smallest common room conversation in Gryffindor to the greatest struggles with Voldemort. **** “Colin Manlove’s study of the Harry Potter books provides a welcome focus on their ‘style and imagery and brilliant invention.’ Manlove works closely with the seven books, illuminating aspects of the books thus far neglected in the criticism of the Harry Potter series. The Order of Harry Potter is the work of a writer intimate with fantasy, its conventions,its history, and its cultural variations.” **** Roderick McGillis, Professor of English at the University of Calgary, is a former president of the Children’s Literature Association and the author of The Nimble Reader: Literary Theory and Children’s Literature **** About the author: Colin Manlove taught English Literature at Edinburgh University for many years, where he received an honorary D. Litt in recognition of his pioneering research in literature. He is the author of over a dozen books including From Alice to Harry Potter (a survey of 400 English fantasy books) and C. S. Lewis: His Literary Achievement. Colin lives in Scotland within walking distance of where J.K. Rowling began writing the Harry Potter series.

    The Dark Side of Asian Women: What to expect from an Asian Woman before it happens

    by Daniel Marques

    Asian women are among men most favorite, due to their caring behavior, dedication to family values and, obviously, for being among the most beautiful women in the world. Nonetheless, they have a dark side, not known to many. This book resumes years of interviews to women in Asia, regarding their expectations, believes and behaviors before and after marriage, but also interviews with men that married them. This is a book that reveals a dark tendency that has crossed the centuries and is very well present nowadays, not only among women in Asia but also the ones that went abroad. Not forgetting the fact that these tendencies tend to change with women that live outside Asia for many years, it’s mostly directed to uncover the strongest presence of the evil acts in Asian countries. It has been compared, for the purpose of this book, both the younger and older generations of women, but also the ones that have no contact with foreigners in their country, those that do but never went abroad, and finally those that have actually been abroad, the ones that had or didn’t had relationships with foreigners, and how they all think and feel about their own experiences. In this short manual it’s possible to find a resume to hundreds of pages of collected information and face-to-face interviews. May the knowledge here presented help in the fulfillment of better and more loving relationships, not only for men that date and marry Asian women, but also for these women, in the exact same level, because the only way to stop something negative from persisting consists in exposing it. The dark side of Asian women is in fact a heritage that often condemns them to bitterness and a life without love. In bringing light into the darkness may we all be more enlightened about the truth and the meaning of love in relationships.

    There Is No Bad Day

    by Aaron Kennard

    In 2011, having found success in his real estate business, Aaron felt stagnant and bored in his business and life. Then one night during a month long struggle with a painful sore throat he had an epiphany. He found that by using each painful swallow as a reminder to express gratitude he was able to transcend emotional lethargy into a euphoric state of joy. A shift occurred that night in his mind which infused him with a deep enthusiasm and passion for life.

    Aaron discovered how to live a truly amazing life regardless of all circumstances and from then on stopped having bad days altogether. Instead, he woke up thrilled to be alive every day. This led him to create the company Truly Amazing Life, Inc. with the purpose of teaching people that This Is A Truly Amazing Life and There Is No Bad Day. Aaron’s passion for living gave him the desire to help others learn to live a Truly Amazing Life also, despite any and all circumstances they find themselves in.

    Then on July 29, 2012, triggered by the stress of his fourth child’s birth the day prior, Aaron’s body was overtaken and progressively ravaged by the chronic bowel disease Ulcerative Colitis. As he experienced massive amounts of pain and suffering, every belief he had begun teaching was thrown into a furnace to be destroyed or refined. Through months of painful despair and questioning everything, Aaron’s beliefs were put through the ultimate test. He lost 50 pounds in 3 months of deterioration and weighed only 128 lbs. at 6’2″ tall, barely able to stand, and quickly starving to death.

    Will Aaron’s convictions withstand this ultimate test? Can he truthfully say There Is No Bad Day?

    Marian

    by Judith Grimshaw

    This is the hitherto untold story of Marian of Lee, daughter of Sir Richard and Lady Ann, set in the fourteenth century during the reign of Edward II in the locations traditionally associated with the Robin Hood legends in Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. Our tale begins as Marian’s world is turned upside down when the arrogant young outlaw, Robin Hood, seeks sanctuary at her father’s castle. We follow Marian on an inevitable course which was predetermined by fate from the time of her birth and which entwines her life to his.

    But Marian’s life is also destined to be caught up with another who haunts her family, seeking to possess both her and a mysterious dagger which was entrusted to Marian by her mother. Will Ralph Tysoe succeed in his quest and what of the legend of the mythical Victory Horse, reputed to bestow such great power, which links Marian’s family to the malevolent Tysoe line, who will stop at nothing to recover what they believe is rightfully theirs?

    A tale of love and a tale of loss, of myth and legend which goes far deeper than Marian’s relationship with Robin. Marian explores the difficulties that women faced during this most difficult and dangerous period of history. As the tale draws to a close, we see Marian increasingly under scrutiny – her belief in the old ways now viewed suspiciously with the rise of an increasingly established Church and the seeds of persecution of those believed to be witchesâ?¦

    About the Author

    Judith Grimshaw was born in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, and is now living in Stevenage, Hertfordshire with husband, two children, black Labrador and occasionally sociable cat. This is Judith’s debut novel born out of a long held passion for the special place where folklore ends and history beginsâ?¦

    by John Erwin

    Follow the adventures of Jedediah P. Carpenter as he is diverted from the Oregon Trail into the Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1858. Share his joys and sorrows as he finds friendship, love, fortune and sorrow in the Rocky Mountains in the years before the State of Colorado came into being.



    None But Heroes

    by Gerard E. Mayers

    Written from the perspective of a corporal in the Fourth North Carolina, we follow the invasion of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia into central Maryland during the 1862 campaign that culminated in the Battle of Antietam. During the ensuing four-week campaign in Maryland, Jake Thompson and his fellow Tar Heels of Company H experience the joys of fellowship, the tedium of long marches, the wonderment of new territory and new civilian encounters.

    But, as the campaign unfolded, how did Robert E Lee and his principal wing commander, James Longstreet, react? A young junior officer of the Fourteenth Alabama, temporarily on loan to Army headquarters and then posted to Longstreet’s staff, lets us experience how developments were discussed and acted upon.

    Then came then the bloody horror that was Antietam (or Sharpsburg). One of the most fiercely contested portions of that battle was the fight for an old, sunken wagon road. The chaotic sounds of battle, the smell of gunsmoke, and the whiz of bullets can almost be heard as Jake and his comrades struggle for their lives. Not all his mates survive.

    None But Heroes is a welcome addition to the genre of historical fiction, blending narrative history with rich character development. Gerard E. Mayers has blended a story of Rebel soldiers in the ranks, their officers, their commanders and staffs in an engaging and believable style. None But Heroes is an powerful, enthralling work that should be the new standard in Antietam-related historical fiction.

You will find what you need deep inside now come explore with me! I am a creative soul, willing to explore the world. These words are my documentary telling of what I’ve seen or experienced or felt.

    Hell Hike: Creepy Scary Story

    by Scream Chamber

    â?¦The map had turned out to be a lot more confusing to read once they were out of the comforts of indoor living. The lines all seemed to blur together to the point that he wasn’t sure what was the trail and what was something marking elevation. They basically had set out on the right path and tried to stick to it, but during one of Kris’s many pee breaks, they must have wandered a little bit off. That was when Kris had started messing with the GPS they’d brought. Alvin wasn’t sure what had happened after he’d started mashing buttons and randomly smacking it against trees, but it didn’t seem to be tracking satellites anymore. It had probably committed electronic suicide to get away from himâ?¦

    Camping is one of America’s favorite pastimes; a little exercise, communing with animals, and just generally relaxing. Alvin can only wish it was that easy. Instead his trip consists of a friend that seems to get creepier as the minutes go by, a spooky old house in the middle of nowhere, and strangely carved box that gives him visions of horrible acts from long ago. Relaxation isn’t any part of the trip he’s about to go on. Making it through the weekend might not be either.

    After the Union’s devastating loss at Chancellorsville, the few surviving men of the 23 Illinois Regiment find themselves separated from the bulk of the Union army and behind Confederate lines.

    Down the Cellar Steps: A Horror Story

    by Arthur Pendryll

    Melanie doesn’t understand why she’s not allowed in the cellar, and the curiosity is getting the better of her. Finally, she’s determined there’s no way around it. Even if her parents and her nanny will be angry she just has to understand why she hears noises and why she’s not allowed inside. This thrilling little gem is yet another example of why Arthur Pendryll is rapidly gaining a name in the world of short horror fiction.
    Warning: This horror story has very dark and disturbing images. Adults should read carefully before determining if the content is appropriate for a child in their care.
    Here is a preview:
    Like she knew that sometimes when Mommy and Daddy went out and Nanny Carla sent her to bed that noises came from Nanny Carla’s room. Once she’d crept to the hallway and watched, but there wasn’t a monster. Instead, Mr. Harper the gardener came out of the room with a guilty look on his face. She didn’t know why he went to Nanny Carla’s room, but she knew the sounds meant something was happening. When she tried to ask Mrs. Harper if Mr. Harper made noises in their bedroom, Mrs. Harper looked shocked. Before she could answer, Nanny Carla whisked her away with a swat on her bottom and told her she was being improper.
    The point was simple, though, even for a little girl like Melanie. Noises meant something, and there were noises coming from the cellar. She wanted to know what was making the sounds. She wasn’t afraid, not really. Mommy, Daddy, Nanny Carla, the cook, and the maid all went down into the cellar every now and then, so there wasn’t a monster. That was sure. Still, why couldn’t she go down? Why couldn’t she see what was there? It was maddening, like when she had to stay in the nursery while Mommy and Daddy entertained guests in the parlor. It was like how she had to drink milk when everyone else at the table got pretty red wine from fancy bottles, fancy bottles from the cellar.
    She dropped her doll when she heard a bump from the cellar. The bump was definite and real, and it was louder than the noise the branch made when it bumped up against her window. “Did you hear that, Nanny Carla?”
    Nobody answered and she looked up. Nanny Carla wasn’t in the kitchen anymore. She was gone. She was gone and that meant that she wouldn’t try to stop her. She stood to her feet, trembling a little bit and took a step toward the cellar door.

    The Watchers

    by Trace Livengood

    Since she can remember, Quinn Wetherby has lived her life in and out of foster homes. Naturally willful and mistrusting of others, she ran away from the last of her ersatz parents at the age of sixteen. There, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she lived off the radar of child protective services, spending all her time delivering pizzas to feed her growing body and haunting the city’s public libraries to fuel her expanding mind.

    When she turned nineteen, Quinn thought she was well out of reach of the foster homes and public school systems she abhorred, so she saw no harm in renting a post office box in her own legal name. Little did she know that, shortly after resurfacing into public view, she’d receive a letter from a lawyer professing to represent her grandfather, Charles Winthrop Wetherby, who had been searching for her all this time but now was dead, leaving Quinn as sole beneficiary of his estate: a palatial home nestled in the seemingly bucolic hills of the Appalachians.

    Upon arriving in Mineral Point to claim her inheritance, however, Quinn soon realizes that her grandfather may have been involved in mysterious, occult practices. Then when Quinn finally meets with her grandfather’s attorney at Wetherby Manor, she perceives that her inscrutable grandfather, his sinister lawyer, and the eerie old house with no windows on its bottom three floors may hold many dark, unplumbed secrets. Secrets that, before the night is out, might reveal to Quinn her lost family’s true fate, what the locals all whisper of as a satanic curse. As all her old questions concerning her past seem linked to unfathomably horrible answers, Quinn is left with the ultimate uncertaintyâ??Will she be the only member of her family to escape from Wetherby Manor alive?

    Letters From Nanjing: Letters to Home From Jiangsu Province to Kansas, Recording First Impressions of China

    by Robert Postlethwaite

    With China in the news almost daily now, it’s hard to imagine a time when it was much less prominent on the world stage and much less prosperous. This is a “before” book so to speak. Before the rapid growth the country experienced from 1990 on, before the dramatic change in the large urban landscape – think Beijing and the world class architecture there and elsewhere in China, and the high speed trains across the country now to name two. This book, a collection of letters, briefly captures that period, as the author lived day to day in 1990 Nanjing while he taught at Nanjing University. These letters of discovery written to the family back home record the sites and sounds and senses of that ancient capital then and by extension, to some degree, China itself at the beginning of that decade.
