He Had Me At Meow: The Story of an Irresistible Rascal and the Gal Who Loved Him

by Chari Fish

“When a book can make me laugh and cry, it has done its job.”

When Chari Fish opens her home to a cat with the disposition of Rodney Dangerfield and the addictive properties of chocolate, all hell breaks loose.

Climbing trees and chasing squirrels across rooftops are just a precursor to mightier transgressions like springing onto the steering wheel of Chari’s moving car after a misguided adventure through a car wash. Then there are the neighborhood bouts of kleptomania, followed by the dognapping of a Black Lab.

HE HAD ME AT MEOW is the humorous tale of a rambunctious cat who strained the patience of his human mom while teaching her the meaning of a life well-lived, and never failing to demonstrate the depth of his love. If there were ever a cat that infused all nine lives with fervor, Cooper was his name.




I’m Not From Around Here: A Jewish Boy Telling the Historical Story of his Family’s Holocaust Survival in WW2 (Biographical Fiction Based on a Memoir)

by Ishai Klinowsky

What could have led to an encounter between such an unsuitable couple as my parents?

This book is a fascinating life diary, in which reality surpasses all imagination. It takes place against the backdrop of the Holocaust, the fate of the refugees at the end of the war, and the rebirth of the new Israel.

The heroes of the plot are unusual, an antithesis of the weak and submissive Jew, sweeping the reader into a whirlwind of events and countless breathtaking adventures.

How does a weak and very naive girl survive for three years in a deadly forced labor camp where others could not survive for more than a few months?

Lola, the mother, whom we encounter as an innocent girl, sweeps the reader close to the hell of the monstrous and notorious labor camp, Ludwigsdorf.

How does an “antithesis Jew” look to the submissive Jew?

Staszek, the father, a street fighter and a tough and hard-working man from Warsaw, is hot-tempered, cunning, and daring. His gypsy appearance and colorful figure lead many women to fall easily into his arms.

What does a spoiled “mother’s son” and “father’s daughter” feel when they see their family collapsing?

From the eyes of an eight-year-old boy, the writer describes a stormy childhood with many heartrending vicissitudes: parents who disappear overnight, living with strangers, being trapped in a tough orphanage … and more…

Written in flowing and sensitive language, the story presents an accurate balance between a personal and family story and the story of a people.

A Glimpse at Being Broken: Part One

by Vincent Reed

This book is a raw, true and painful reflection of my childhood in the foster care system. My mother lost me twice to the system and would go on to give me up a third time. I grew up and aged out as a ward of the State of Minnesota. Throughout my life I have been hiding my history from friends and family. It has never been a part that I wanted to share publicly until recently. I never had the support until now that it required to share my story. I was in eleven different homes in ten years while in the system. Some of those homes good but the ones that were bad really out weighed the good ones. For the few fond memories I have as a child, there are twenty more bad ones. I suffer now from PTSD from my childhood and with the help of therapy and a strong woman by my side, I can share this now. I am not mad about my past and how I was treated, rather I am thankful to be here today. My life could have taken such a different direction and I think of the good and bad places I could have ended up in. My history and childhood is a big part of who I am today. I am writing this book now with reflections of what I have learned and been through in life. This book is the first part of my life, with the second part coming hopefully before the holidays. I hope you read this book and it brings to light the reality that so many foster kids face after aging out. For me when I aged out there was nothing. My life has always been difficult but I hope by releasing this it becomes just another weight lifted off my chest.

Killing The Wrong Man : The True Story of Lee Ann Reidel

by Anita Murdock

One month later on the 17th January 2001, an unbelievable act of violence took place. Alex Algeri was shot in the face and killed outside the Dolphin Fitness Club. Gym members and the local community of Amityville were shocked; it was obviously a cold blooded murder.
Like any typical January in New York, the weather was very cold and there was a covering of snow on the ground. It was 7.20 in the evening and already dark. It was Paul Reidel’s night off; Alex Algeri was covering the late shift at the gym. During what had so far been a perfectly normal evening, Alex popped out to get a CD from his car for one of the regular aerobics classes. He exited the building through the backdoor. The car park was not well lit and would have been very dark. He went round to the passenger side of the car to collect the CD from the glove compartment. Suddenly, a man jumped out of another vehicle parked nearby. As Algeri turned around, the man shot him several times in the face and neck.
But who would want to murder a man with no enemies? It turns out that he was murdered by mistake.
The true target was the husband of another woman.
This is her story.
