THE HIDDEN CHILDREN (Western Classic): The Heart-Warming Saga of an Unusual Friendship during the American Revolution

by Robert W. Chambers

It was the time of the American Revolution where both the Americans and the British were taking help from the Native Americans to win the war. The west was yet to become the west as we know of it today and primarily meant the entire area to the west of the river Hudson. In such times, going against all conventions, a young American ensign befriends a Mohican man and holds deep respect for the latter’s belief. But what will happen to their friendship and where will the war take them?
Robert W. Chambers was an American artist and fiction writer, best known for his book of short stories entitled “The King in Yellow” which greatly inspired H. P. Lovecraft. He was one of the few authors who represented the Native Americans in a positive light in his works.

How to Draw Cool Stuff: Shading, Textures and Optical Illusions

by Catherine Holmes

“How to Draw Cool Stuff: Basics, Shading, Texture, Pattern and Optical Illusions” is the second book in the How to Draw Cool Stuff series. Inside you will find simple illustrations that cover the necessities of drawing cool stuff.

Specific exercises are provided that offer step-by-step guidelines for drawing a variety of subjects. Each lesson starts with an easy-to-draw shape that will become the basic structure of the drawing. From there, each step adds elements to that structure, allowing the artist to build on their creation and make a more detailed image.

Starting with the basic forms, the artist is provided a guide to help see objects in terms of simplified shapes. Instructions for shading to add depth, contrast, character and movement to a drawing are then covered. The varieties of texture and pattern that can be included in an artwork offer another layer of interest and depth to a design. These elements are necessary to indicate the way something looks like it feels in a work (texture) or creating the repetition of shapes, lines or colors (patterns). Illustrated optical illusions involve images that are sensed and perceived to be different from what they really are, showing examples of how the mind and the eyes can play tricks on each other.

All you need is a piece of paper, a pencil and an eraser and you are ready to draw cool stuff. Once the drawing is complete, it can be colored, shaded or designed in any way you like to make it original. Following these exercises is a great way to practice your craft and begin seeing things in terms of simple shapes within a complex object.

by K.J. Heritage

The first book in K.J.Heritage’s acclaimed IronScythe Sagas

And from the dark unknown, came a hooded avenger…

Mystery enshrouds the creature known as the Scowl, bent under the weight of his forbidden metals and irons, and by his own terrible disfigurement.

Some call him the Land’s Avenger, a champion who’s will is to seek out all works of Delving and to destroy them. Others say he himself is marked by Delving and must be also destroyed.

The Scowl does not care either way. He only follows only the will of IronScythe, the sword that can never leave his side.

When the Scowl is brought before the court of King-Emperor Jhaz’Elrad, accused of murdering a young noble–he is unexpectedly saved from execution by the ambitious Dracus Krall.

In return for his life, the Scowl is sent on weregild to kill the evil golem that has lurked in the Krall family home for generations. A terrible, haunted creature, created by the dark majiks in the time of Delving.

Accompanying the task is Dracus’ teenage niece, Vareena, a strong-willed tom-boy who grew up in the shadow of her uncle’s ambition and who has resisted his many attempts to marry her off. But Vareena is not as she seems. She harbours a secret power that her uncle would gladly kill for.

Together, Vareena and the Scowl begin an uneasy alliance. An alliance that will change both of their lives forever…

THE DIAMOND MIND: The Law of Attraction Based on Ancient Scripture and Modern Day Practitioners

by Charles Lewis

Be of good cheer because this is day chosen specifically for you to take the first step on the road to total freedom. Freedom from disease. Freedom from poverty. Freedom from self-sabotage. Freedom from hate. Freedom from fear. Freedom from mediocrity and all unfavorable circumstances. Today is your day to move your life forward. So, claim it, visualize it, feel it and receive it. Over the last ten years, The Law of Attraction has been the new crave. Success Consciousness defines the Law of Attraction as the attractive magnetic power that draws similar energies together. It manifests through the power of creation everywhere and in many ways. This law attracts thoughts, ideas, people, circumstances, and situations. It basically states that whatever you think about and focus on most, is what you attract into your experience thus giving you direct control over the circumstances of your life. It offers you some practical ways of harnessing this power using scientific prayer (Affirmations, Creative Visualization and Emotions)
Although these principles have been used for centuries in Eastern Culture, most Americans treated this as if were a new concept when Rhonda Byrne released The Secret in 2006. Authors like Napoleon Hill and Dr. Joseph Murphy taught on this subject years ago and had some early success but it never caught fire. So, what we see today is a resurgence of old concepts with modern day applications.
For traditional Christians, reading this book will be a bit uncomfortable at first. But I implore you to keep reading irrespective of your comfort level. You may also find my critique of the Bible a bit scathing, and overtly aggressive at times. Just trust that my only objective is to remove the clouds of religious tradition so that the sun may shine brighter on the Bibles truths and hidden wisdom. I show you the most effective and non-limiting approaches to scripture, while at the same time uncovering there hidden meaning.
This book will give you practical ways to use the spiritual exercises effectively, boost your creative confidence, and attract abundance in all areas of your life. We will discuss some key habits of highly effective people and explore the power of your subconscious mind.
For the people that are already on this path, this book will be one of many experiences that will be attracted into your life on your journey towards complete enlightenment.
Ancient teachers and philosophers have long understood that the power to move mountains comes from inside of us. The physical world that we see is only a reflection of what’s been created internally. Since the beginning of time attempts to understand, define, and label this power that creates worlds has been the source of passionate debate and major conflict. This power has been called God, The Source, Allah, Love, The Heavenly Father, The Matrix, Yahweh, The Universe, The Creative Mind, The Creator, and Jehovah. Stephen Hawking calls it The Mind of God, Dr. Joseph Murphy calls it the Subconscious Mind, and Neville Goddard calls it “your own wonderful imagination.” In this book, I use almost these labels interchangeably. And even though I realize that gender is an altogether human characteristic as opposed to a spiritual one, I also refer to this power as Him.

Resonance: The Myth and Science of UFOs

by Eon Xavier Tero

Don’t read just one side of the story!

There arose in the mid-20th century a popular myth of strange visitation and miraculous technology. Now that it’s almost completely a thing of the past, what did it all mean? â?¦ alien scientists, supernatural influences, natural forces, or simply a modern myth fed by subconscious need and the suspension of disbelief? Was it all just a curious outgrowth of mysticism, paranoia, and simple human error?

When it held sway with the public imagination, the UFO phenomenon sparked far-reaching speculation on a wide range of issues as diverse as folklore and quantum mechanics, spiritual enlightenment and the limits of science, disinformation and our various penchants for self-deception.

This book covers every popular interpretation, including that of the skeptics, focusing on the mythical, metaphysical and scientific principles implicated in the wide diversity of related belief systems.

Can zero-point energy be tapped for propulsion or the generation of electricity? Did Nikola Tesla or other mavericks of fringe science (or black projects by the US government) already discover how?

Are wormholes, warp drives and anti-gravity really possible, or just convenient plot devices in science fiction?

This book examines all of these questions and much more!
