We all are Rapist: Secret of Life (Words into SILENCE Book 1)

by Shri Prashant

Congratulations. Grace has brought you to a unique repository of mystical utterances, at par with the highest spiritual words that mankind has ever known. Contemporary, yet timeless. Related to everyday life, yet carrying the essence of the Beyond.

Here you will find words that have come through Shri Prashant – A contemporary young mystic whose Shabd-Yoga sessions, Shoonya-Smaran methods and Anahad-Kriya celebrations are bringing the purest essence of transcendental wisdom to today’s world.

Marvelous are the ways of existence. His journey took him to technical and management education at IIT (Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi) and IIM (Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad). He then served for a few years as a management professional, besides a few weeks in the Indian Civil Services. These lucrative options, however, hold little importance when the Truth beckons. Responding to a higher calling, he undertook a rigorous spiritual pursuit for a long time, turning to the service of the timeless. He established Advait Life-Education and AdvaitPrashant Foundation as movement for â??Creation of a new humanity through Intelligent Spirituality’.

Today, the Advait movement has touched the lives of more than a million individuals. Through direct contact with people, and internet-based channels, Advait continues to bring clarity, peace and love to all.

May you be blessed!


by Denys Semrany

In a Greek city a wise man is known for his wisdom, people came from afar to listen to his teachings, he addresses different issues like happiness, friendship, love, religion, etc. Great reflections that help us understand life. The thinker is an essay that capture the reader`s attention from the beginning till the end.

About God he says:

“Man from the beginning has been seeking to worship someone precisely in the pursuit of happiness, not in vain; and we see this when we live the greatest misfortunes in life that we only seek God because it is what gives us strength to go on, and at that time neither money, nor love, nor friendship, nor philosophy are capable to console the soul”.

And let me utter this phrase:

“The universe and the soul are the most wonderful things in the world and are the two clearest ways of seeing God”.

About marriage he says:

“Marriage is an emphaty of two souls and not a desire”

A Guide to Stoicism: How to Live Good Life

by N Kumar

I want to thank you and congratulate you for downloading the book, “A Guide to Stoicism: How to Live Good Life”.

This book contains demonstrated steps and procedures on the best way to bring stoicism into your life.

Stop for a minute and investigate you. It is safe to say that you are content with your life? Is it true that you are in the spot you truly should be right now in your life? Do you awaken each day feeling content with the things encompassing you?

The greater part of the general population out there would give a straight “No” response to no less than one of these inquiries. What’s more, it is not astounding, truly. We live in a day and age that appears to encompass us with all the awful things conceivable. We live in times of battle and turmoil from all perspectives. Furthermore, considerably more than that, we live gravely.

We eat inadequately, we live ineffectively, we dream inadequately and our vitality is coordinated towards the wrong place. It is no big surprise that sorrow, uneasiness and anxiety are center parts of our lives and that they overpower us to the point where we can take no more.

Did you realize that the rate of kids conferring suicide is on the ascent?

Tragically, this is an actuality that we, as grown-ups, need to confront routinely. The issue does not lie in the United States just or in the United Kingdom just, yet it is an issue at a worldwide level. An issue for which the main great arrangement ought to be appropriately instructing our kids.

In any case, by what means would you be able to teach your child to carry on with a more satisfied and more advantageous life in the event that you yourself can’t live it? By what method would you be able to let him know that he ought not to take to the words and activities of the domineering jerks at school and that he ought to lie on when you yourself are likely the casualty of a harassing manager, when you are possibly a harasser yourself in some cases. In what capacity would you be able to tell your child that there is no reason to worry in the event that you are not fine and if the whole world is so distant from “fine” that we appear to have lost any significance in the word itself?

“Be the change you need to find on the planet” Mahatma Gandhi said once. Change begins not with your government officials, not with long discourses on how craving can be ceased in Africa and unquestionably not with directing fingers.

It begins with you. Yes, you, the one understanding this book, have the ability to change.

The Stoic lifestyle may simply be the answer you have been scanning for such an extended period of time.

Much appreciated again to download this book, I trust you appreciate it!

The Way Home: or Face the Fire

by JAH

This Book is fact, NOT fiction; it is the truth about life in this galaxy and here on Earth. It is the truth that you have, or should have, all been waiting thousands of years to hear, i.e. what life on Earth is REALLY all about. It has been written to enlighten the whole world, without preference to race, colour or creed; it is a Book for ALL human+beings, including YOU. If, after having read and DIGESTED its contents, you choose to disbelieve it, that will have been your own decision and you will have my heartfelt pity, because, very soon, as a result of your decision, you will first be tortured, by what you have done, then burn and die on the Last-Day, as you have been promised and continually reminded of, for thousands of years. You will have missed your LAST chance to survive execution, and it will have been your own FREE choice. Whilst reading this Book, as when reading any of the G uardian O f D ivinity’s Books, you must ask Him to interpret it correctly for you, as you are reading it, and listen for His telepathic enlightenment. If not, you will have Satan confusing you into misinterpreting it. Ask the Lord to interpret it for you, in preference to ANY human+being, except me. Please excuse my lack of writing professionalism. I am a soldier, not a writer and have written this Book, not to demonstrate and impress people with my command of the English language, but to be as easy as possible for ALL God’s adopted children to be able to understand.

Historical Romance: Once Upon an Arranged Marriage (Victorian Duke 19th Century Love Romance) (Lady Rake Rogue Historical Romance)

by Julia Regan



Cora Ashton

She is still adjusting to the life her father’s newfound wealth has brought her, and she can’t seem to understand why people think it’s so much better to have money. After all, with the turn of the 20th century coming quickly, Cora sees more freedom in being poor. She certainly had a less strained relationship with her mother before, and she hadn’t been expected to parade around at a coming of age party or to marry a man she didn’t love.

And she’d had Joseph.

Joseph Watts

He hates seeing Cora’s unhappiness, but with such a low station in life, he can do nothing about it. Besides, his hands are full with his ailing sister and working every odd job he can find to support the two of them. While the news of Cora’s engagement to Charlie Cantrell is difficult to hear, Joseph knows the wealthy young man will provide for her.

But when circumstances become overwhelming and Cora and Joseph find a way to steal a moment here and there to reminisce over their childhood together, the uproar it causes – both in social perception and the raging storm inside both of them that drives them to need each other – becomes overwhelming.

Each forced to make difficult decisions, will they be driven apart by their differences or together by their mutual need?

Annabelle’s Diary

by Lila M Beckham

They said that in her youth, Annabelle had long, coal black hair, high cheekbones, and deep, penetrating, brown eyes. Her eyes could still penetrate the soul, but they were paler in color, maybe because they were covered with the whitish film of cataracts. I remember watching her take her hair from the neat bun she wore and let it down to comb. Her hair was long, but no longer black as coal. It was the color of newly formed storm clouds and fell in a silvery braid to her hips. I watched her comb it out and then she would braid it, wind it back into a bun and pin it low, just above the nape of her neck.

Everyone always said that I favored her a lot. Annabelle was my great-grandmother; she was a Full Blood, a Choctaw Indian from Savannah, Georgia.

When a child, I thought she was tall, larger than life. My admiration of her as we walked in the yard and I helped her gather eggs and pick flowers, was unsurpassable; but as I grew, I realized that she was a tiny woman.

Shrunken from her many years on earth, she stood barely four feet, ten inches tall. In her older years, maybe even her younger ones too, she was never without a jar of Garrett snuff.

One summer, when I was about twelve years old, I went to stay with my grandmother Annabelle. And because her house was so small, I slept in her bedroom with her. Each night before we went to sleep, she pulled a leather bound book from underneath her mattress and wrote for a few minutes before she extinguished the bedside lamp. She seemed intent on what she was doing so I did not bother her with questions, but after several nights, curiosity got the better of me and when she finished and placed the book under the mattress, I asked what she was writing in the book.

She told me that she was writing her thoughts on the events of the day so that if she wanted she could look back and know exactly what she was thinking and how she felt that particular day.

“Is that how you remember all of those stories you tell me, about when you were a child and about your kinfolks back then” I asked.

“It is a part of it,” she replied, “but some things you just do not ever forget. They remain with you your entire life.”

“Tell me a story, Grandmother,” I begged. “Tell me about when you were a child; a young girl like me.”

She began her story that night, by telling me how she met and married my grandfather Jesse. She also told me about leaving her home and family in Savannah to move to Mobile to live near my grandfather’s family. And in that telling, I discovered that my grandmother had led a very interesting life, especially in her earlier years.

Her life was filled with heartbreaks, heartaches, great times, and sad times. She attended Mardi Gras Balls and traveled extensively around the South. She was involved with an assortment of ill-fated lovers. Indulged in hoodoo, voodoo, even murder! Hers was a life I found extremely fascinating; a life, I wished I could live.

That summer, I decided that when I grew old, I wanted to be just like my grandmother Annabelle. However, today, as I sat staring across the haphazard layer of hills to the west and thought of Annabelle and the olden days of grace and charm. I realized that those days were forever gone. They were days that I myself would never know, except through my grandmother’s eyes and memories.

No longer that young inquisitive girl, I am an old woman now. On my own, I have lived a long uneventful life. Only through her stories could I live the life I dreamt of; therefore, I decided to share her story with the world. I am certain she would approve.

I hope you all enjoy reading her story, as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Her story began April 1865, at the end of the Civil War, as was told to me by my grandmother, Rebecca Annabelle Maples Foster.

At first there was darkness. A cold bleak wash of nothing, that found itself spread out across an even bigger void. The emptiness of it all would have been unbearable had there been anything there to bear it. As gases ebbed and swirled into life, so they swirled and ebbed into each other. The universe was created by the simple act of attraction. It decided to be, and so it was. These swirls danced like twin flames around a timeless universe. A colossal canvas upon which all manner of thoughts and people and feelings could eventually paint their picture. But in this moment, there was simply gas. Blue and orange mists, balls of delight wiggled into each others path and seemingly fleeted out. But never the less leaving a remnant of themselves inside one another. Always leaving a trail. Forever losing part of what they were to become what they are.



Lowarth Toll.

â??Do not forget about the family treasure.’

That is the contents of the note that start a family feud. The note does not specify what the treasure is. What lengths will some members of the family go to, to get their hands on it anyway?

While on holiday with his parents one summer in Cornwall, Arthur visits his Great Aunt Emma. She spent the first 50 years of her life, nursing her parents. Not that many years after they passed away, Emma has suffered a stroke. Her brother and sister do not believe she will survive, so go to her house to check on things. Emma lives in a cottage in the hamlet of Torleith, in Cornwall. They go through her papers and find, along with her will, a note from their Grandfather, Charles, to his son. In it, he reminds his son not to forget about the family treasure. It does not specify what the treasure is.

They set about taking the cottage apart, but still fail to find anything. They then take to visiting Emma in hospital, trying to force information out of her about the treasure. Even if she does know anything about it, which she does not, Emma is incapable of communicating to anyone. Eventually they give up.

When Arthur visits his Aunt whilst on holiday, he feels for her. Every day he visits her and reads to her. He buys her a radio to listen to when he is goes home again. Emma responds to this and after Arthur has returned home, she continues to improve. The progress is slow but in the right direction. She improves to the degree that it is thought that she might even be able to return home. That is until the social worker visits and discovers that the family has wrecked her house. The family start to visit again too and the combination of all this sends her rapidly downhill, culminating in her having another stroke.

Only when she eventually dies, does the family learn that when she improved, she had also changed her will. Arthur now inherits her estate. They now turn their attention on Arthur, to reveal the family treasure to them. Arthur isn’t even aware he has inherited when they first attack him in his home. On the second occasion they do so, a visitor steps in to help save him.

This visitor leads him back to Cornwall, where he follows the clues left by Charles. Is it all a big family joke or is there something to be found at Lowarth Toll?

by Faith Crawford

A brave young girl travels West to meet her future husband. But what secret is he hiding? Can she trust him with her love?

After the untimely death of her mother during labor, Adeline is forced to look after her siblings as her father becomes distant and uncaring, spending the majority of his time drinking and at times even becoming abusive.

When Adeline’s aunt comes to visit, concerned about the state of their family, she notes their financial decline and struggles to stay afloat with children and a father who isn’t present.

Adeline’s aunt does all she can to help them, and in doing so decides that sending Adeline west as a mail order bride is the best option.

The Dark Continent Part One: A lusty saga set in colonial Africa

by Ron Dawes

This saga follows the story of Elizabeth, a young British woman born and raised in Shanghai in the 1890s. At eighteen, she marries a young missionary who is assigned to East Africa and struggles to discover and enjoy her sexuality amid the expectations of decorum for a young British woman in the puritanical age of the Victorian era. She knows there must be more to love and marriage than is provided by her devoted, yet hapless husband Aston, who seems unwilling or unable to fulfill her needs.

The historically accurate account of the colonization of Africa from 1900 through the end of the first World War serves as the backdrop for the story, which introduces a rich variety of characters, including the crusty old trader, John Brown, the dashing young Captain Waltham, and the young missionary couple, Thomas and Jane Faulk.

The descriptions of Elizabeth’s lusty adventures are detailed, and meant for a mature audience. You’ll come back to read the juicy bits over and over.

Lila: A Novel of Trials and Triumph

by Mae Schick

Lila, a teenage Dakota farm girl, has a fiery streak of determination to match her flame red hair. And, as a young woman in the 1920s, she will need every ounce of fire to overcome the expectations of her family of German immigrants from Russia. Can she forge her own destiny in the still-evolving America of the early twentieth century?

Lila is the mesmerizing novel of one woman’s trials and triumphs, which lays bare our nation’s complex cultural heritage. As part of the German diaspora from Russia, Lila’s world revolves around the Evangelical Lutheran Church community, which does not tolerate outspokenness or disrespect to elders. However, Lila soon finds herself running afoul of her father’s wishes. He has forbidden her to socialize with the wild young man Fischer, and when her father remarries, she is relegated to fieldwork rather than her beloved baking.

As cultures clash and violence erupts, Lila is forced to navigate opposing forces in her ever-changing world. As she does, this absorbing, authentic immersion in a time long gone celebrates the deep reserves of inner strength in all of us, which are summoned grit and glory by the indomitable Lila.

Ticket of Leave: Javelin Man (Javelin Man: Book 1)

by Theo Flynn

You think you’ve had a bad day?

4 October 1843 Van Diemen’s Land; a British Prison Colony:

  • Irish “Javelin Man” and convicted felon, Sir John Turner Flinn used to be a navy intelligence officer but at the age of fifty he’s been transported for life. How can he retain the respect of his sons and restore his honor? “Javelin Men” were trustee convicts who were employed as turn-keys, prisoner escorts and as guards at public hangings.
  • The new Governor learns his “sinecure” is a “poison chalice” as the Colony’s bankrupt and his reform agenda unworkable..
  • The new police chief, Frank Burgess is worried; he’s supposed to clean up a force that’s manned by serving convicts and brutality and graft is a way of life.
  • Long serving colonial auditor, George Boyes is fed up with the worse thieves in the Colony; the Men at the Top.
  • Bushrangers, Marty Cash and Lawrie Kavenagh pace the death cell dreading the gallows. They broke out of Port Arthur Prison, went on a rampage but now they must pay. Lawrie says he only escaped to go to Mass.
  • Convicted Irish Patriot, Richard Jones is a man the System can’t break. His plan to seize the prison ship and to sail to New York, would have worked but for betrayal. He faced trial for piracy in Hobart but out-witted “the System” and beat the charge. However, he must finish his original sentence and he’s now in solitary and recovering from a savage flogging inflicted for leading a protest about the absence of Catholic prison chaplains. Dreams of liberty and dignity in America are the only thing keeping him going.
  • Pub owner and widow, Mary Anne Smith is a beautiful, passionate but brutalized former convict; she’s lonely and yearns for a strong but gentle man.
  • The only person who’s had a good day is magistrate, John Giles Price. He’s a man with a very dark past and he’s planning an even darker futureâ?¦

“Ticket of Leave” represents the first installment of the “Javelin Man” trilogy and is based on records and newspaper articles from the time. The book’s for adults as it contains a lot of sex and violence.

How the Story Came About.

“John Turner Flinn” dropped into my lap one Christmas holiday in Alice Springs NT. It was too hot to do anything but watch videos and we became engrossed in a crime series set in the 1920’s. My girlfriend’s granddad was a gangster in Melbourne in that era so we looked him up on “Trove”. After seeing his many press cuttings, we decided to dig into earlier generations and uncovered an array of petty thieves, Swing Rioters, ships’ captains, a Chinese gold miner and a lot of wayward women.

I became jealous as my own family tree yielded a staid collection of Lancashire refugees from the Irish “Great Hunger” of â??47. Envy led to a series of “jokes” about “checking change” and “watching pockets”; the response went from polite smiles to “probably a lot of your bloody relatives came here in chains as well!” I decided to check this and the first “Flynn” I saw on a convict list became my hero; John Turner Flinn. His record revealed he’d been an “officer and gentleman” in the Navy and contained a strange reference to the “Regiment” so I “Googled” further and found :

  • His case was in the “Newgate Calendar” so his trial was big news.
  • He gave evidence at Queen Caroline’s trial for adultery in 1820. The trial was example of public crucifixion of another “People’s Princess”.
  • He was a “spook” in the Napoleonic War; and then
  • The coup de grace; rumors that his wife, Edwardina Kent was the secret daughter of Queen Caroline and the Prince Regent. If true, this gave her a better claim on the throne than Victoria.

With material like this, I felt a duty to finish this novel; hope you enjoy it.”.

by Wallace Runnymede

This brief collection of dark and twisted poems lays bare the sombre heart of woman-hatred and neuro-hatred. In order to oppose the Patriarchy and the Neuriarchy, an education in feeling is required, and not only an education in intellectual ratiocination. The problem is men, and the problem is medical chauvinism and assimilationist ‘Neurodiversity’ alike.

Augie Lohtech: and the Hole Between Worlds

by Mackenzie Cole

Everyone thinks Augie is a weirdo except for her dog – after all, she slips away to work on her lattice of tree forts, dresses like a chimney sweep, and has imaginary adventures after sneaking off from school. But when she dozes off high up in a tree and finds herself falling, something unusual happens – SHE DISCOVERS A SECRET WORLD LONG FORGOTTEN.

Inspired by the novels from my childhood, I’ve put together a rough draft telling Augie’s epic adventure. I’ve tried to fill it with magic-not just the sort that only happens in stories, but the strangenesses of those books we loved as children, and also the lessons about how to better live in the world. My goal is to spend the year revising Augie’s story into a crisp and polished book.

I think I have something with Augie. She’s brave, and I’ve written her story to encourage younger folks to pay attention to the natural world and be able to discern how certain ways we have of seeing threaten that world. Rather than pitching her story to publishers or sending it out to never hear a word back, I want to share Augie in a way that engages people as I do it. Rather than relying on men behind the curtain of the publishing world to make a declaration about the appeal of this book, I’ve come up with a new idea that puts my writing in your hands. If people like the story, it continues. If not, oh well.

Here’s the plan: I’ll release new sections each month as the same Kindle book based on downloads. If you want to see more of Augie’s world, you can download the latest release and encourage your friends/family/social media connections, etc to do the same. Buying it is a vote for me to keep going and once I get 100 downloads, I’ll re-release the book with the next section by the end of the month. After another hundred, I’ll re-release it with another section and so on (I’m shooting for at least 10+ pages per release). If you want to keep up and you’re not a Kindle Unlimited member, you’ll have to keep buying the book after each release in order to get the new version. However, once I finish, anyone who bought Augie along the way can get a full digital version by going to and messaging me. If you message me, no matter what, I’ll make sure you get the book, however far I take it, for just that initial $1.

If you want to do more, just visit my patreon page:

If people get behind it, by this time next year I should have a complete first draft that I can release in print and you’ll have helped me accomplish a dream, plus Augie’s story will be there to hopefully help push us toward a better way of being. I know that’s a lofty ambition, but I also know this world needs us to be lofty if we want to stem the looming disasters.

Poems About Dylan: A Love Story in Verse

by Lydia Buzzard

I believe in reserving the most romantic form of literature for only the most intense romances. Dylan was one of those.

In fourteen poems, I will walk you through the short-lived, game-changing relationship that dictated my transition into adulthood. These are memories I captured in the moment, in iPhone notes and Word documents that, looking back, told a story pretty well. It’s a story of finding a friend, falling for him, then leaving him behind to chase a better future. This is losing him and missing him and trying to replace him. These are the bandages I used to cover the wounds until they finally healed. These are Poems About Dylan.

The Blue Window Bay

by Dale John Kanera

These are the poetic musings and observations of life and its trials from a romantic, honest, joyful yet real perspective. The feelings we have during our stay on earth, along with the inevitable ups and downs, can be complicated and simple. They are explored and shared here in gentle, eclectic and partial prose.

From Despair to Dreams

by Maria Lento

I hope these poems inspire you to feel that there is always a rainbow at the end of the storm, and that life is meant to be lived to the fullest. Never give up!!!


by Michael Forester

A bardic epic fantasy in rhyming Old English, an allegorical masque of good and evil in an Authurian tradition.

Rebekah, daughter of Merlin and noblewoman of Albion has been driven to madness by the murder of her lover Vidar. In her torment she bargains with the Prince of Demons to turn her into a dragon. Once transformed, she seeks to take revenge upon her father, Merlin, whom she is fooled into believing is responsible for Vidar’s death.

Behind the subterfuge stands Oberon, Captain-King of Elves, who cannot foresee the devastation his jealousy and unrequited love for Rebekah will unleash upon the world of Gaia. Its salvation depends upon Merlin travelling back in time to find a pure hearted warrior, Lady Attie, who, together with Michael, seer of Albion, must take the Sleep Stone from the gates of Hell to persuade the dragon to sleep. But if they are unable to return the Stone to the mouth of Hell in time, the demon army will awaken and ransack Gaia in a war that will destroy its existence. Time is the solution to Gaia’s destiny – but only if the gods of Asgard can find a way to stop it.

Dragonsong is a unique epic fantasy that explores fundamental themes of good and evil, jealously and revenge. Woven together with a gripping and powerful plot, the pattern of the language, the musicality of the form and the profound emotions invoked carry the reader to extremes of human experience and capability at both its best and worst.

In the mind of a variable

by Lisa Hargrove

Born in Rockford. Not UNDER a rock, but IN Rockford, Illinois. I was soooooooo glad Mom decided to move to Texas when I was 3 months old. I would have been here sooner, but I couldn’t quite drive. Graduated High School a Married my High School Sweet heart. That lasted only 4 years total. Then as a blessing after getting divorced in 1994 I got a gift in 1998 named Mykaila Beautiful Red haired, Blue eyed baby, without a husband. Raised her by myself. I am a bipolar mum, which isn’t always easy. So, I have decided to write down my thoughts to explain my world to others.


by Musa Gift Masombuka

Have you ever felt that the world inside you is building up into a bitter taste? Has life to you seem to be very promising but at the end the ends couldn’t meet? Have you been spiritually abused? Is life starting to become your worst nightmare and the people closer to you seem to be invisible because you are too absorbed in your thoughts? Is your rosy garden filled with thorns, that pricks at you every time happy moments strike? Is life to you becoming more like a daydream dressed like a nightmare, wishing that you could one day wake up and find the storm all over? Are you suffering the emotional torture and life to you has started to be meaningless?

How do you feel? Do you have some magic moments you would like to share but do not know how to express them in words? Are you a cupid spreading love to others and want to express it more in a poesy way? Are stuck in a middle of a love struck and would like to get over it? Do you have reminiscent memories that are sheer than the shining moon and beautiful like the night sky full of stars? Life can be wonderful sometimes.

Are you still struggling to forgive and forget about the apartheid leap that has drenched the blood of fellow South Africans? Have you travelled and lived in your friend’s souls and would like to express your emotions about what you experienced? Are you a man of nature and has a thing for the animals and creatures? Do you appreciate your life and very thankful for as long as you breathe?

Have you seen the struggle of life? Those horrifying moments when everyone has turned the back on you and felt like you are in your own planet of troubles and helplessness? Have you ever sat down and looked at life from a different angle and see things that not everyone could ever see? Has that helped you enough to can confess that you understand life much better?

Poetry marks one of the shortest ways to express thoughts and emotions, it has been divided into a wide of ranges where writers express themselves in different emotions and situations. Poets put their pens on the paper to console their emotions and also to send us an important message about their experiences in life, they are our messengers of life. Poets and writers have always been regarded as the titanium towers because their souls are undefeatable for they find healing and rehabilitation in their writings. Writing also serves as a big part of the rehabilitation process.

No matter how you feel, this book is designed for you with emotions and moments to share. MY WORDS IN VOLUMES: Emotions Of A Poet has been written for everyone with a troubled soul. It is a book that will help you deal with all your solutions by healing your soul while making you strong. It is again aimed to teach you the important lessons of life and prepares you to all the walks of life. The poems has been carefully selected and well penned for you to get the message while healing your broken soul.

Another seer may come or not!”

These were the last lines of Allama iqbal in the hands of his servant on the early morning of 21st April.

The Non-sense Collection Work: Work

by Monsur Choudhury

This is the ‘hope’, the hope in that a collection of poetical rythmic stutters in life lessons that may be learnt.

Simply it can be lessons in outwardly giving direction in story form.

Simply it is through experiences told in story form.

Meant as lessons and others in humour at a situation.

It is made from me thinking how I have been and how my baby could be.

Humor, theatre in life lessons, experiences to be yet to come across, guidance in a parenting nature. Most importantly engaging the mind and to nurture exploration of young spirits and minds and keep them interested in reading and carrying on exploring the world of imagination.

I hope whole heartedly it can be of some useful substance over form and form without form just as water is free flowing in so many of the implicit emotions that we do hold, everyone holds, and starting this in our young minds.

On 4/19 (On 4/19 and Beyond 4/20)

by Lisa Heaton

Book One of Two (Watch for Beyond 4/20 Fall ’14)

Out of desperation to pay tuition for her final year of school, Chelsea enters into an arrangement with a much older man. The one-year contract commits her to accompany him to social events and occasional travel, nothing more, and in return he pays for her school and living expenses.

John’s intention is to have a smoke screen of sorts. While entering the agreement with no fear of developing any emotional attachment to a woman so young, John quickly discovers his feelings are deepening toward Chelsea.

As the contract stipulates, they begin and end on 4/19 – no exceptions. After a year together, though, and as deepening feelings complicate what is supposed to be a business relationship, will walking away really be as easy for Chelsea as signing her name to a contract?

Note from the author: In this story you will encounter a young believer who has true faith but not so much trust. As much as Chelsea loves and believes in God, her journey to be truly close to Him takes time and develops on into the sequel, Beyond 4/20. For John, a cynical man who turned from his faith in pursuit of “more”, Chelsea’s character and integrity becomes a beacon home.

Watch for Chelsea’s story as it continues in Beyond 4/20. In this sequel, Chelsea’s deepening relationship with God will be what gives her strength to endure life’s most difficult challenges.

A to Z Guide to Booking with AirBnB in New York City

by Wojciech Migda

This guide is dedicated to travellers. It is not one of those “make money on AirBnB” books you can find everywhere. Instead, it’s purpose is to help the reader to make the best of his money finding and booking an accommodation in New York City through AirBnB.

It is short, concise, compressed, and to the point. It is based on my own experiences and it was conceived after long weeks spent browsing through AirBnB listings while I was trying to find a place to sleep and rest for each of my travels to New York City. I wrote it to help others speed up the process of booking the right place at the right price. Some of the subjects I touched upon are more general, some focus on intricacies of New York City itself. In many cases I have learned about them the hard way – by discovering aspects which made me take step backwards or even go back to point zero. I am not an American citizen, hence, my learning curve was very steep – I hope that travelers in a similar position will benefit the most. Enjoy!



Everyone has that one dream, planted as a seed when they were a child, that they’ve all but given up on after realising the hardships and responsibilities that come with growing up and starting a family. Always lingering in the back of your mind, only a few people have the courage and the will to follow through with such lofty ambitions. For author Rod Wood, that dream was to climb the beautifully daunting Kilimanjaro.

Unfortunately, life and depression hit Rod like an oncoming truck. Dissatisfied with his day to day living and unable to put a finger on why, he embarked on a journey of self-discovery to recapture the very same whimsy and joy he felt while learning about this legendary continent as a child. Not content to let his life-long desire pass him by a second time, Rod begins to etch out the plans that would change his life forever. With a new-found confidence and commitment to discovery, Rod sets out on the adventure we’ve all dreamed of: to fulfil our childhood ambitions.

Engaging in conversations about life, love and the world, Rod’s thought-provoking tale takes him on a series of adventures, coming across people and places that would define his later years. Chronicling the real life tale of one man’s journey to the “roof” of Africa, Kilimanjaro: My Goal, My Story, spins a heart-warming and relatable memoir into a powerful and engaging personal study.

Roads to Adventure 31 Kayaking, Hiking, Biking, Fishing, Skiing, Caving, Surfing, Rock Climbing, Ice Climbing, Rafting, Camping and RVing Stories

by Bruce Leonard

I wrote this book for travelers who enjoy reading about adventures and for those willing to expand their comfort zones by participating in exciting activities that they thought were too much for them. I am athletic, true, but I have suffered from a series of injuries, a back injury foremost among them, and yet I have climbed rock faces, plunged into icy rivers, mountain biked trails that tested my stamina and my resolve, skied an Olympic downhill course, boated huge fish and participated in dozens of other activities that nearly anyone can pursue, so long as they believe they can. Roads to Adventure, therefore, is meant to encourage self belief.

French Men on Sex, Love and Women

French men are open to love, sex, passion, communication, no holds barred. It’s a free way of being we envy when we study them. It oozes from them like an overflowing glass of champagne. And we want to drink, become intoxicated, we want more.

Looking for clues to resolving our existential belly, heart and soul questions, the author goes deep-sea-diving for straight up opinions on sex, love, women and the spiritual core of life. By peering inside the French male mind she unveils their heart’s secrets, seeds of liberation, happiness, laughter and some hard truths.

Presented via a collection of casual interviews with friends and strangers in cafes, bars, trains and other hideouts, this is the only book you’ll need to understand what French men really think.

Arequipa Travel Guide (Unanchor) – A 1-Day Foodie’s Dream Tour of Arequipa

by Michael Fraiman

A 1-Day Foodie’s Dream Tour of Arequipa (Published April 2016)

This isn’t a Peruvian food tourâ??this is an Arequipeño food tour. The Andean city, Peru’s second-largest, is known for its traditional gastronomy, which means you’re basically guaranteed to never find these dishes anywhere else in the world. They’re represented by a unique blend of Andean spices and European flair, crispy pork skins, local fruits, spicy peppers, doughy desserts, and potatoes served every way you could imagine. Don’t expect ceviche or lomo saltado on this tour; the goal is to stick to what’s local whenever possible, including historic institutions and mainstay dishes.

This simple one-day walking tour will take you through the city’s gorgeously preserved colonial downtown and through the beautiful lookout of nearby Yanahuara, all while making sure you’re eating Arequipa’s best offerings. We also eschew most of the conventional top-rated TripAdvisor restaurantsâ??they’re expensive touristy nonsense, and not really representative of the city’s decades-old purveyors of desserts, coffee, and soups. If you want the real deal, read on.

What will you eat in Arequipa?

– A complete 12-hour itineraryâ??two breakfasts, lunch, and dinner, with desserts and drinks in between.

– The best spots for local specialties such as rocoto relleno, chupe de camarones, and adobo.

РUnique local twists on South American classics, including Arequipe̱o tamales and lime-spiced empanadas.

– Hand-rolled tea leaves, acclaimed coffee, craft beer, and the best spots for Andean corn beer, chicha.

РDesserts abound: clove-spiced ice cream, sugar-dusted alfajores, and freshly fried bu̱uelos.

What does this Arequipa itinerary include?

– Restaurants and food stalls you won’t find on Lonely Planetâ??some don’t even have addresses.

– A good balance of popular (though authentic) restaurants along with places where you’re guaranteed to be the only foreigner.

– The city’s one restaurant that must not be missed.

– A guide to local ingredients, meal etiquette, and gastronomic history.

– The best times to eat to avoid the crowds.

– Information about public transport, detailed maps and directions, prices for sites and restaurants, and night activities as a bonus.

Why should you buy this Arequipa travel guide?

If you visit Arequipa according to the top restaurants on TripAdvisor, you’d waste roughly 50 times more money than this guide costs.

The city’s best eateries aren’t always touristic and expensive. Like all Unanchor travel guides, this itinerary has been curated by someone who’s actually lived in Arequipa, and includes a detailed timeline of the city’s top sights, along with maps, directions, and insider tips.

We’ve done the researchâ??all you have to do is follow along and explore the city. No need to spend hours sifting through different websites, guidebooks, and maps. This itinerary is like having a personal foodie tour guide in your pocketâ??but with the freedom to explore on your own and without the cost!


At $3.99, the itinerary will pay for itself the first time you follow the advice on dining and traveling destinations. If you are unhappy with the itinerary for any reason, Amazon provides a full refund. What are waiting for? Get this guide and go explore the food of Arequipa!

World’s Bounty: World Travel Sketches of the 1960s

by Douglas McCloud

The fascinating World’s Bounty was inspired by the Russian classic The Hunting Sketches. Like Ivan Turgenev’s acclaimed stories, these sketches are fictional, though they draw from the people and places author Douglas Pollock McCloud encountered in his travels as a young man during the 1960s.

World’s Bounty includes eleven short literary storiesâ??each filled with conversations in which individuals from all walks of life express their views on love, war, health, faith, and ordinary living.

One anecdote takes you to a sidewalk café in Paris, while another tells a tale of survival and belief through suffering in Peru. You’ll meet a soldier on a train and a surgeon in the Austrian Alps. And you’ll encounter love that cannot be detained on the border between Libya and Egypt.

Some stories trace the never-ending conflicts affecting humanity as played out on the beaches of Acapulco and the jungles of the Amazon Basin. Others, taking place on Mount Olympus; in Madurai, India; and on a series of islands across the seas, have a mystical tone.

Each narrative is a philosophical reckoning. Together, they illuminate the world’s vast bounty of people, places, and ideas.
