Bittersweet

by Laurel Black

A small collection of short stories that deals with love and loss. This collection includes: End of a Dream, Seasons, Misplaced Love, and One More Night.

Excerpt:
Just before you proposed, you told me about a dream you once had.

We were back in high school, being goofy, lovestruck teens. We were walking in one of the local parks. There was a lake near us, and you figured it’d be a good idea to push me in. Fortunately, I caught the sleeve of your shirt, and took you down with me. We spent the rest of that dream kissing in that lake, until evening fell and we had to go back.

As I looked down at you in that hospital bed, I kept remembering that dream, your voice still ringing in my ears. Before I knew it, I leaned down, and kissed your forehead.

“I love you,” I whispered, just as the nurses rushed in, just as I was ushered to the side, they couldn’t do anything to revive you.

“I love you,” I said again, “so fucking much.”

by Tina Madison

â?? â?? Buy the Paperback version of this book, and get the kindle eBook version included for FREE**

Ever found yourself wondering what was going through a person’s head? Have you ever been inclined to think you’re being exploited, manipulated or lied to?

Learning to analyze human behavior is an excellent way to answer those questions before they become bigger issues.

As a job of a psychiatrist, we are required to gain experience in reading people through what they say and from who they are. To be able to see beyond a person’s facade, the interpretation of verbal and nonverbal cues is essential as logic alone won’t tell you the whole story about anybody.

Various other vital forms of information must be obtained so as to be able to read the necessary non-verbal intuitive cues that people exhibit through their everyday actions. To do this, one must be ready to give up any preconceptions, or baggage carrying regrets or inner battles that conflicts with one’s perceptions thus attaining a certain objective and receive information neutrally without it creating any distortive aspects.

Whether its figuring out the behaviors of your partner, assessing potential business clients, understanding the actions of your colleagues, or simply reading the true intentions of strangers on the street. Being able to analyze people properly, puts you at a huge advantage and a privileged position.

In How to Analyze People: Handle your Relations, Instantly Read People, detect Body Language and Influence Anyone through the art of Manipulation, Persuasion and NLP, Tina Madison has condensed the best techniques and excellent tips on how to “read” some common behaviors as well as practically applying these tips to everyday life. In this book, we learn how to analyze human behavior by:

  • Understanding the strengths and weaknesses behind different personality types
  • Learning to interpret body language, and understand how people communicate unconsciously using a variety of gestures and movements
  • Recognizing facial cues and what they add to body language
  • Detecting lies based on facial cues and body language
  • Reading into manipulative tactics to see how others may be deceiving you
  • Identifying the warning signs of an emotional manipulator
  • Developing skills in persuasion techniques to improve your influence on others
  • Learning how to recognize psychological bullyings such as gaslighting, ghosting, and signs of infidelity

By the end of this book, you will have a firm grasp of basic and nuanced human behaviors. The professional world can be daunting, some careers more so than others, and any edge you can use to gain an advantage is well worth the time to learn.

Detecting lies and manipulations in personal relationships is a valuable advantage as well. This book can help you get out of a dangerous codependent relationship or even help avoid the bad experiences altogether. It contains a detailed list of the different signs to look for to determine if you are in danger of being manipulated. It covers some methods of recovery if you have been a victim of any of these psychological manipulations.


So, hesitate no longer, BUY THIS RESOURCE BOOK NOW and become an expert at detecting and understanding human personality and behaviors!

Christmas Lights Series Box Set Duet: Two Christmas Holiday Romances

by Di Jones

These two delightful linked holiday romances take place on either side of the world: one in Australia, and the other in England.

Christmas Kisses Down Under

I have a hotel empire to build. She has memories of her parents to hold on to. Who will win this battle over a motel in the Australian surfing town of Byron Bay?

As director of International Boutique Hotel Group, my job is to acquire holdings to build my real estate empire. I’ve identifed my latest target: the Ocean Surf Motel in Byron Bay, Australia, which I want to knock down and rebuild as a luxury condominium. The owners won’t sell, but that doesn’t deter meâ??I jump on a plane to Australia a few weeks before Christmas. I’ve just broken up with the woman I was planning to marry, and I figure that some time in the hot sun is just what I need. I’ve always wanted to learn to surf and time at the beach will harden and tan my body. It’ll be an added bonus if I can close the motel deal I couldn’t close from London.

But the Morrison family isn’t selling the Ocean Surf. Not only am I thwarted by that, but I’m physically frustrated over a pretty, long-haired surfing instructor named Summer. A girl with a cool demeanour, mesmerising eyes, and a body to die for. I’m determined to win her over, and have a hot holiday fling with this Australian surfy chick.

But what I didn’t count on was the connection between the motel and Summer, and the choices I’d have to make as a result. Lust or love? The motel or Summer?

I can’t have everything…or can I?

Hot Kisses in Cold Christmas

I’ve come to England for Christmas, searching for a fresh perspective in my career as an artist. She’s trying to get over the pain of betrayal and loss. Can I convince her to take a second chance on love?

On my way to England, I find a letter with a strange address: Tamsin Willoughby, Cold Christmas. It turns out that Cold Christmas is a real place with a haunted church, and curiosity piqued, I decide to visit and deliver the letter by hand.

Tamsin is a shapely blonde school teacher who’s chillier than the weather. She’s been jilted at the altar, and the letter I carry stirs up her pain and makes her wary of me. I try to convince her to trust me, because I’m determined to get to know this beautiful English rose.

But what I don’t expect is the connection Tamsin makes between her runaway fiancé and me. Can I convince her I don’t know him, and that she should spend the holidays staying warm with me?

I thought I wanted to broaden my horizons. But now what I want is right in front of me.

To a Man Much Like Myself

by Diego Segura

You’re a philosopher among the likes of Seneca. After writing my first book in May of 2018, I didn’t know what to do with myself, so I started to write myself letters. For three months, I wrote a letter to myself from the day before, giving him [me] advice and admonishing him for being dumb when necessary.Seneca, a philosopher born 4 B.C., spent the last years of his life writing letters to a pupil of his named Lucilius. The writings are excellent bits of wisdom that are still relevant today. Those letters inspired me to write my own.As I wrote my reflections, I realized how important it was to reflect on the day before. It made me think about my actions, my habits, and my own beliefs. Journaling this way changed my life. My goal for you is to read these letters I wrote to myself, read the letters Seneca wrote to his pupil, and then put the book down and start journaling to change your life, too.



THE IMMORTAL UPANISHADS

by BHABANI SHANKAR ACHARYA

Why Upanishads ?
Between say 5000 to 3000 thousand years ago, a lineage of Indians settled in the cool confines of the jungles surrounded by rivers, mountains, animals, birds and trees, developed a language called Sanskrit and carried the same to its pinnacle.
They shifted their thoughts from study of matter as expounded in the Vedas to study of something imperceptibly beyond matter and began writing the Upanishads.
These were a study of â??beyond what we perceive now and here’.
And every important person that had mattered or who had shaped our thoughts in the history of mankind, studied them, wrote commentaries to simplify them and sourced their own thoughts from them.
No one including the agnostic Jewish scientist of the modern world ever ignored them. Subsequent literatures drew heavily from them and helped create our own modern, moral mind.
An astonishing fact is that the brilliant authors of these texts never bothered to leave their names for us to remember and celebrate their birthdays!
Can we go without looking at them? Without looking at what they really wrote? Ignoring the wealth they stored for us to shape our own lives?
Let us read for ourselves what they wrote, in our own simple language.
Here we cover nine Upanishads namely Ishavasya, Kena, Katha, Prasna, Mundaka, Mandukya, Aitareya, Taitareya and Swetaswatara.
The book contains only the English translation of the stanzas. The book intends to offer easy reading to its readers, to help them assess the range of thoughts contemplated by the authors.
I translated it from a Hindi book written by Sri Harikrushnadas Goyandka. He had covered all the stanzas in original along with its forensic meaning.
I am no match to write an authentic book on the Upanishads. I just wrote the way it appealed to me.
I hope I can write the translations of the other two important Upanishads, Brihadaranyaka and Chhandogya, at a future date.

Echo Six: Black Ops – ISIS Killing Fields

by Eric Meyer

ISIS strategy is unchanged, to expand their bloody Caliphate by means of conquest and slaughter. Yet the tide has begun to turn against the brutal regime. The Russians have arrived in force, along with their legions of aircraft and armor. In spite of this, the Mullahs ignore mounting losses and continue to send jihadi fighters to probe the Syria/Iraq border. Their intentions are clear and unequivocal. Conquer and kill.

Echo Six, the elite NATO Special Forces unit, is on a routine sweep along the Syrian border, when they discover a terrible secret. A new weapon of mass destruction is concealed beneath the sands, and the ISIS scheme to deploy their murderous invention is imminent. The plan is to make Iraq the epicenter for a new campaign of planned genocide. A land they mean to make their new killing fields.

The operation to defeat the Islamists becomes a merciless battle against vicious enemies and untrustworthy Iraqi allies. Stakes are high, higher than any they have faced before. The planned annihilation will turn Iraq and Syria into a wasteland. A mass grave, where only the Caliphate will survive to rule over a mountain of corpses.

This is another thrilling and bloody story of NATO Special Forces, operating behind enemy lines. Men who will go to any lengths to complete their mission, and to die for it if necessary. Echo Six Black Ops: The China Raid is by the bestselling author of many other Spec Ops stories. These include the popular SEAL Team Bravo titles, the Raider series, as well as the Devil’s Guard series and other Echo Six titles.



The Soldierâ??s Gene: One family eight battles 850 years

by Mike Inkster

The Soldier’s Gene cleverly fills a gap between factual history books and the general historical novel.
Tracing the passage of genes for nearly 850 years through the descendants of one man, is an interesting departure from the norm and adds an intriguing slant to what remains a novel.
The mixture of facts of the various battles fought by the British Army during those years, and the fictional descriptions of the experiences of the soldiers, in battle and otherwise, has been skilfully written and little imagination is needed to make the reader feel as if they are there with the soldiers.

The characters experience the vagaries of war on a very personal level and recount their different tales at first hand although not all are willing soldiers. They fight for different reasons and differing causes both in their homelands and foreign fields.
They are not always on the winning side and some don’t come through unscathed. Some don’t come through at all.



Maximov’s return

by Evgeniy Erastov

It is a story about a general Maximov, who was injured after an explosion in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. He has a chance of a deep self-analyzing during a recovery. This is a tale about an honor, boldness and a responsibility



The Distinct Sense of Evil

by W.R. Heustis

He was an anomoly. There was no getting around it. Here he was a typical young German citizen who ended up a prisoner in one of the worst WWII Nazi death camps. He wasn’t Jewish but experienced that same fate as a result of having been identified as a student associated with one of the men who plotted to assassinate Adolph Hitler, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. In the process of internment, a growing relationship begins between this man, Hans von Hustenberg, and his fellow inmate, Weiss, who is an unidentified Rabbi. Together they attend to the horrific daily task of dealing with the dead as they emerge from the gas chambers. This harrowing personal account reveals the darkest struggles one must face when confronted by such a glaring existential outrage. Hustenberg, after all, is a divinity student. But he’s also got a background in engineering; something that the Nazis eventually realize would be of use in support of the war effortâ??a role that Hustenberg is loath to ultimately fulfill. But in that transition from prisoner to slave labor comes an opportunity where life offers an opening, a chance meeting that reveals a reason to continue living despite the intolerable.

The Jesus Jewel

by Brett Williams

Before his death on a cross, Jesus hides a handwritten note. Finding it could doom mankind. There is one last hope, balanced on the edge of oblivion.



The fate of farm boys

by A. Maldon

In the 200,000 years we have ground through so far, what insight will never be examined? What manner of inner landscapes will remain unexplored? What songs will forever be unsung?

The mountain of the dead that lies behind today is matched only by the weight of the potential that has been squandered to get us here.

This is a snapshot of a life lived 1,000 years ago that will always mean nothing.

Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Collection (All the novels and stories in one volume)

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly – see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is one of the best known and most universally recognizable literary characters in any genre.

Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories were narrated by Holmes’ friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson, two having been narrated by Holmes himself, and two others written in the third person. The first two stories, short novels, appeared in Beeton’s Christmas Annual for 1887 and Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine in 1890. The character grew tremendously in popularity with the beginning of the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine in 1891; further series of short stories and two serialized novels appeared almost right up to Conan Doyle’s death in 1930. The stories cover a period from around 1878 up to 1903, with a final case in 1914.

This collection contains all the 60 official and the 6 unofficial Sherlock Holmes stories – in total 66 works (the biggest and greatest Sherlock Holmes collection in the eBook world).



In This Style

by Brian Lamont

If you like your fiction simple, superficial and â??spoon-fed’, this book is not for you.

In This Style encourages the reader to make their own interpretation of each short extract and explicitly demonstrates many varieties of conventional language, which are as equally entertaining as the stories themselves.

From the familiar tone of a newspaper horoscope to the distinctive parlance of Cockney rhyming slang, Brian Lamont intentionally disguises content with form, as well as humorously parodying several established literary traditions, techniques and writing formulas, such as the essential elements of classic detective novel.

With a multitude of layers, In This Style is a captivating tribute to the English language and offers the intellectually starved reader a lavish banquet of what one hungry reviewer recently described as â??bite-size pieces of delicious prose, topped to overflowing with lashings of sumptuous flavour’ (Dieting Monthly, Mar. 2015).

Fear

by James McDonald

When the Nazis came to power in Germany, they persecuted all the Jews. It mattered not to them that a great number of Jews were non practicing and considered themselves as proud Germans first and Jews second. A lot of these Jews had fought for Germany in the Great War. This is the story of one such family.

If I Lost Everything: A Poetry Chapbook

by D. H. Wever

The emergence of the true self may require what feels like the loss of everything.
Poems of emergence, discovery, and consciousness.



Barren

by A Mizilla Johnson

Beneath the masks of smiles and positivity
Beyond the silver linings, and looking to the bright side of everything bad, are the darker parts of the human mind
The places where reality is a nightmare, and the struggles, fears, and insecurities lead to terrible thoughts.
Welcome to my wasteland.



Crime and Punishment

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Through the story of the brilliant but conflicted young Raskolnikov and the murder he commits, Fyodor Dostoyevsky explores the theme of redemption through suffering. “Crime and Punishment” put Dostoyevsky at the forefront of Russian writers when it appeared in 1866 and is now one of the most famous and influential novels in world literature.
The poverty-stricken Raskolnikov, a talented student, devises a theory about extraordinary men being above the law, since in their brilliance they think “new thoughts” and so contribute to society. He then sets out to prove his theory by murdering a vile, cynical old pawnbroker and her sister. The act brings Raskolnikov into contact with his own buried conscience and with two characters â?? the deeply religious Sonia, who has endured great suffering, and Porfiry, the intelligent and discerning official who is charged with investigating the murder â?? both of whom compel Raskolnikov to feel the split in his nature. Dostoyevsky provides readers with a suspenseful, penetrating psychological analysis that goes beyond the crime â?? which in the course of the novel demands drastic punishment â?? to reveal something about the human condition: The more we intellectualize, the more imprisoned we become.

Black Dream’s: B-Side

by Jamar Byers

B-Side is the second Piece to Black Dream’s. The first book was written as mixtape with different forms of writing scattered throughout the piece. B-Side is more experimentation with poetry, more verse than any other form, but structured, again, like an album with an intro and outro and other themes running through the piece.



Exiliada: La Patria, el amor y las anclas (Spanish Edition)

by Guadalupe Fraire

Desde el exilio de la Patria también se llora; los exiliados somos un murmullo que se convierte en grito frente a la colección de tragedias y la letanía de tristezas que viven nuestros pueblos. Esta colección de poemas escritos desde lo cotidiano, describe la forma en que los exiliados sentimos la vida al alejarnos de lo que amamos y somos. Poemas que se convierten en un espejo para los lectores en donde puede identificar sus abandonos, renuncias y tristezas, su renacimiento y reconstrucción, sus anclas a la vida. Cada metáfora es cultivada en la soledad del exilio y la honesta confrontación con la realidad de lo que los seres humanos experimentamos en la lejanía.
Estos poemas son también el oasis donde reposar del pragmatismo cotidiano y contactar con lo profundo del alma. Los poemas son el pasaporte universal para viajar a nuestro SER y llenarnos de la energía y la motivación para sobrevivir al exilio.

Premio Letterario Giacomo Zanella 9° Edizione (Italian Edition)

by Comune di Monticello Conte Otto (Vicenza)

Siamo onorati e orgogliosi di presentare la nona edizione del premio letterario dedicato a Giacomo Zanella. E siamo piacevolmente meravigliati che la vincitrice sia la stessa che, nella prima edizione, nel lontano 2005 era risultata al primo posto. Questo a dimostrazione che molti scrittori e aspiranti tali aspettano con interesse l’uscita del bando e sono in qualche modo affezionati a tale proposta. Devo però dire che, oltre ai soliti affezionati, ogni anno arrivano racconti  da tutta Italia e quest’anno in particolare sono pervenuti gli scritti di molti giovani, a dimostrazione che l’interesse per il premio sta continuamente crescendo.
Quest’anno poi il premio si è arricchito di due pubblicazione preziose e importanti: l’Astichello, la celebre raccolta di sonetti dello Zanella impreziosita dai disegni di Galliano Rosset e La Villa del Poeta, a cura di Italo Francesco Baldo con le fotografie di Danilo Pellegrin.
Il mio ringraziamento a tutti coloro che in questi anni mi hanno sostenuto nel progetto di riportare l’attenzione dei cittadini di Monticello Conte Otto sulla figura di Giacomo Zanella che pian piano stiamo conoscendo, apprezzando e amando.

Premio Letterario Giacomo Zanella 10° Edizione (Italian Edition)

by Comune di Monticello Conte Otto (Vicenza)

Siamo onorati di presentare la decima edizione del premio letterario dedicato a Giacomo Zanella; un traguardo arricchito di un valore aggiunto che è rappresentato dal numero molto alto di partecipanti. Anche il tema proposto quest’anno “il tempo della serenità” è stato particolarmente apprezzato; tema che ricorda la scritta che è presente sul frontone di Villa Zanella: datur hora quieti. Fu proprio in questo buen ritiro che lo Zanella respirò negli ultimi dieci anni della sua vita una atmosfera di piacevole serenità, predisponendosi nell’animo alla scrittura dei sonetti che sono racchiusi nella raccolta “Astichello”.
Piace anche ricordare che sono pervenuti elaborati da tutta Italia scritti da partecipanti molto giovani a dimostrazione che l’interesse per il premio Zanella sta continuamente crescendo; la vincitrice infatti è una giovanissima ragazza neolaureata di Roma.
Anche quest’anno il premio si è arricchito di una pubblicazione curata dal prof. Italo Francesco Baldo che ringrazio per il grande lavoro di ricerca e la passione con cui porta avanti il progetto. In questi anni si è sempre parlato di Zanella come poeta, letterato, insegnante, studioso, uomo di cultura, poco di Lui come Sacerdote. Per questo motivo quest’anno si è approfondito il tema: Zanella Sacerdote.
Anche se non fu mai destinato ad una parrocchia Zanella fu Sacerdote, in tutto, seguendo Dio nel servizio liturgico, nella cura delle anime, nell’aiuto ai poveri, nell’educazione dei giovani, nella poesia e nella cultura.
Il mio ringraziamento alla Giuria per il grande lavoro svolto e a tutti coloro che in questi anni mi hanno sostenuto nel progetto di riscoperta e approfondimento della figura di Giacomo Zanella.

Per te soltanto, bambino: Frammenti di emisferi e Tapping-ninne nanne (Un’immodesta proposta Vol. 2) (Italian Edition)

by Filippo Parodi

Galleggiare accanto al proprio bambino interiore, toccarlo toccandosi, arrivare a smarrirsi tra “vaghezze di confine”, in un “bagliore di incertezza”. Questo è il percorso tra percettività, psicanalisi e magia che Filippo Parodi ha intrapreso, rivisitando un passato che logorava, andando ad affrontare un buio dove si nascondevano pietre, Io giudicanti, tagliole di archetipi. E in quell’oscurità, a fianco al bambino ora arrabbiato, ora guida incoraggiante, l’autore ha camminato fino a trovare il riscatto di un’alba, uno spazio di possibile affrancamento. Da qui nasce la sua testimonianza poetica, quasi in presa diretta col processo di riavvicinamento e talvolta riappacificazione con l’infanzia, con una scrittura che vuole essere corporea, rispetto alle opere precedenti più nuda, immediata. Una scrittura in cui riaffiora, pur nella lucida consapevolezza dell’indeclinabile travaglio dell’esistere, l’antica voglia di spiccare il volo e di mettersi a giocare.



7 storie sugli Altri (Italian Edition)

by Celeste Sidoti

«Riesce a creare il genere di malia dei migliori scrittori.» – Grazia Gironella
«Mi ha riportato subito alla mente Stevenson o Poe.» – Paolo Cestarollo
«Il mondo misterioso dei bambini, con abili e toccanti descrizioni.» – giuria del premio 150 strade

7 storie sugli Altri è una raccolta di genere fantastico, psicologico e realismo magico, con sfumature horror. Sette racconti brevi su ragazzi dalle esistenze solitarie, per le particolarità che li rendono emarginati, o per una riservatezza di carattere, con cui nascondono un patto misterioso, una scoperta che li ha cambiati per sempre, una natura non proprio umana, un segreto che li rende al contempo fragili, potenti e pericolosi.
Contiene Evidenziatore Stabilo giallo, finalista del premio 150 strade 2015, e Sirena, pubblicato nell’antologia Radicamenti da MdS Editore.

Fairy Tales and Shorts for Grownups Vol 2

by Sally Hull

From fairy tales to westerns, to modern day stories, this collection of short stories is designed to catch the interest of adults who simply want to read a story, but may not have the time required to read full-length novels. The author has included short prayers at the end of each story, prayers inspired by the stories themselves. These prayers are her heart, welcoming you the reader to join her in her conversations with God.
The first story is not a fairy tale, but how the author imagined it must have been like for Adam the first time he opened his eyes. Everything was wonderful. But after he sinned, part two of Consequences begins, which is a Western concerning one of Adam’s descendants who must deal with the reality of sin. Another Western entitled: Boiling Springs is the account of the tale from each of the characters’ eyes, showing unique perspectives. Only when all the perspectives are put together is the reader enabled to see what happened in the Western towns of Boiling Springs and Deadeye. And then there is the retelling of some old classic fairy tales, but with a twist. For example, Sleeping Beauty is anything but beautifulâ??on the outside. But on the inside, she is a rare gem.

People come from all walks of life as they embrace a new world-the world of HearthLand.

In Volume 6, lives in HearthLand have become fully intertwined. Annie is home and faith grows within her, but unexpected desires send her reeling and leave her ready to make even more changes in her life.

Hunger Moon

by Ruth Francisco

In 2003, an amateur naturalist and self-proclaimed protector of the grizzly bear traveled to Kaflia Bay in Alaska to live with the grizzlies for three months. His girlfriend joined him. On October 6, the mangled remains of their bodies were found eaten by a grizzly.

What happened exactly? Why would any man be so foolish as to try to live with wild grizzly bears? Why would a woman follow him? Why would they stay beyond a time when any sane person would have left? When the only grizzlies not headed toward their winter dens are insatiably hungry. Mean old bears. Aggressive bears.

Told from three perspectivesâ??man, woman, and bearâ??this fictionalized account of historical events takes the story into the realm of mythology to explore our most essential fears, and our most elemental driveâ??hunger. Man hungers for purpose, hungers for fame, hungers for God. Woman hungers for romantic love, for a love that will give her life meaning. What happens if the Man mistakes the grizzly for God, if the Woman mistakes the Man for her white knight?

The grizzly allows no such mistakes. The grizzly knows only the hunger in its belly.



Slivered (Slivered Souls Trilogy Book One)

by Kandi Vale

They say that time heals all wounds. For Kisa, however, the more time that passes, the more of herself she begins to lose. Grief has made her a shell of her former self; eating away at every feeling and driving her slowly to the brink of madness. No matter how desperately she tries to feel something, nothing gets through.

For millennia Dolor has walked the world, watching humanity evolve and devolve before him. After all this time, he has grown content where he is. With true friends at his side, he’s created a profitable establishment; a BDSM club for the supernatural. Being one of the most powerful beings in creation has its perks, and he wants for nothing. Until Kisa…

It’s pain that brings them together. Something she needs to feel, and something he needs to exist. What they don’t know, is what’s about to be unleashed. Will Kisa put her life in Dolor’s hands? Can Dolor teach Kisa to dance in her darkness, or will her pain consume them both?



El Desalmado (Spanish Edition)

by Roger Villegas

Por una maldición familia transmitida por generaciones Teófilo Almada, sin pertenecer a esa estirpe adquirió casi por accidente la peculiaridad de poder separar su espíritu de su cuerpo. Al principio le ocurrió involuntariamente, sin darse cuenta, mientras dormía su alma se le escapaba y salía a caminar por el mundo, a deambular entre la gente. El creía que lo soñaba.
Poco a poco fue tomando conciencia de que no eran ilusiones oníricas lo que le sucedía, sino que realmente por un fenómeno inexplicable, como todo fenómeno paranormal, se vio con la peculiaridad de poder separar cuerpo y alma. Por esa facultad de desdoblarse su espíritu, un ente con voluntad propia y conciente, es decir su esencia misma, abandonaba su ser material cual despojo inerte. �l, Teófilo Almada, sin su espíritu era como un cuerpo muerto, en consecuencia era en realidad un ser espiritual, encadenado a un cuerpo carnal. Todo ello a despecho de se racionalidad y de su materialismo manifiesto.
Con el paso de los días fue aprendiendo a manipular tal característica a voluntad; no le resultó fácil hacerlo deliberadamente, pues los espíritus por ser una especie de energía inmaterial no están sujetos a las leyes físicas del espacio ni a la temporalidad, pero a pesar de todo, y con mucho esfuerzo, llegó el momento de que sus desdoblamientos fueron voluntarios y también su actuación como espíritu, y comenzó a usarlo para actos de venganza con tintes macabros. Lo que no podía hacer como espíritu era vaticinar el futuro, por lo que no pudo anticipar su final.

MILLER, HALF-ORC: Escape from Bondage (THE HALF-ORC SERIES Book 1)

by J. R. Marshall

This is not a children’s book, neither is it a thuggish journey of boring brutality and ignorance. However the book does include some magic, lots of sword fights and unexpected allies as Miller finds support and enemies alike.
Miller is incredibly intelligent, this is in itself unusual, for Miller is Half Orc and Half Human, and whilst the story starts with his escape from captivity, it moves swiftly through adventures in a world filled with prejudice and self interest.
There’s humour mixed with the unexpected, conflicted thoughts and decision making. Miller needs to survive whilst so much is stacked against him. Will he?
As i wrote this book i wanted to make it different, not the usual Dungeons and Dragons boring scenario, yet there are elements of dnd in this book, but written from a more mature perspective. You’ll be an ally of Miller by the time you’ve finished this story, perhaps?
I hope you enjoy this book, I’ve tried to make it different, worth your money! The second in this series is released in January 2019.

Comments from readers; review and extracts...

“Sorcerer & Warrior – Half Orc”

“I liked this, it is different. The plot is a great take on a simple idea, but with the use of first person narrative it is elevated to a interesting story. The main character is fascinating, strength, intelligent combine for a complex protagonist…”

“Good Read. Interesting plot. I liked the Different type and variety of characters. Found the whole story interesting and well written. Never thought I would be rooting for a half orc!

“Thinking that this was going to be yet another of those bland and wishy-washy stories raided from the D&D-type general store, I was more than pleasantly surprised to find that it was not: This book is full of originality!”

“This has all the ingredients to fire the imagination, Magic, Swords and Sorcery, battles with friends and foes alike.”

“Miller the half orc warrior sorcerer tries to be wicked but keeps doing the right thing! – You will Love It…”

And a little bit more about ‘Miller’….
‘I am Miller, a half-orc warrior sorcerer, a servant of none, yet indebted to two individuals a Dwarf and a Halfling, and destined to build a kingdom.’ Nonetheless the darkness of my heart corrupts my mind, it’s so easy to forget civilised behaviour, yet I’m not wholly ruined nor without redemption, nonetheless most of society treats me with contempt, always accepting my silver, yet seldom with cheer.
Book Two (release date January 2019) will continue the mature reading approach.

Just One Bite: Dances With Werewolves Book One

by Nora Snowdon

This playful take on modern werewolves is perfect for fans of Dakota Cassidy’s Wolf Mates series. Sexy, hilarious, and emotionally satisfying, Just One Bite is a cute novella you can really sink your teeth into.

Rosie has an amazing one-night-stand with the most perfect man. Ever. He’s gorgeous, funny and really seems to like her. Then she overhears that his ex-girlfriend is pregnant and he’s being forced into a shotgun wedding. Hell, the only good thing that came out of that night she met Lucas, was the mangy dog who now jogs with her. He may be an odd looking mutt, but at least he’s a good listener.

Lucas adores Rosie but she hates him because she thinks he’s a lying sleaze who cheated on his fiancée. Nothing could be further from the truth. Not to mention, Rosie would freak out if she found out he’s a werewolf.

The other problem is, she only likes her jogging partner the wolf, and not the man. But damn, how do you woo a woman if all you can do is bark?

“Witty and warm-hearted, Just One Bite is a fun romantic comedy that will have you howling with laughter.” Helen Frost and Don Macleod, Screenwriters of Hallmark’s Just In Time For Christmas

Just One Bite is the first book in the Dances With Werewolves series. It is a paranormal romantic comedy with adult situations and is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Dear readers: Please note, this book, originally published in 2012 with a small e-press, has been revised and was originally titled Love At First Sniff.



Fantasm: Horror Fiction (real killer Book Book 2)

by Michael Morgan

As she fell through the air, Claire reassured herself the fall would not be enough to kill her and that the real killer would find her fast enough. But once she hit the ground, she laid there, numb and motionless, pools of red hot blood accumulating all throughout her body. As she knew the blood loss was too much to recover from, she recalled everything about the incident that consumed her every waking moment. The petrified look on her friends faces, their chokes of pain and desperation, the slight hint of almonds in the air.

Almondsâ?¦?

She scent of almonds suddenly triggered a new memory, unlocked it. She remembered smelling it in the party. Where exactly? She struggled to pinpoint the exact moment she smelled the hint of almonds. Suddenly, an image began to resurface behind her closed eyelids – the bottle of poison.

Hydrogen cyanide gave off the slight hint of almonds. Claire now remembers glancing at the poison as she searched for a weapon to use against Rev, how she knocked the bottle over while grasping for her bag for a can of pepper spray. She remembers it spilling across the ground and seeping into the pool but she was too disoriented to notice and too preoccupied to warn her friends. She realizes she killed them by accident, in the attempt to save them. Claire felt like her entire world was collapsing down on her, spiraling into her and smashing into her being. I killed them, Claire thought to herself. The autumn leaves blew around the crisp air, floating softly and slowly, as if to pay tribute to the tragedy below them.

“I am so sorry.” She whispered.

Claire felt as if this was the proper end. Perhaps this ending was the only way to do justice to what she had done. And so she stopped fighting. Slowly, but surely, she fell deeper and deeper into unconsciousness, as her eyelids struggled to keep open and her vision began tunneling. Suddenly, she was snapped back from her peaceful departure into awareness, as she heard a rustle in the leaves, then footsteps.

“How could you do this to me, dear Claire?” A liquid soft voice crooned from a distance.

She thought she was simply imagining things, hearing voices. Perhaps she had already entered the next life, and this voice was not real. But the sudden shadow that covered the light pouring from the lampshade proved Claire otherwise. There was definitely a dark figure standing right above her head – a man.

“If I wanted you to die quick and easy, I would have pushed you out that building myself. Instead I felt you deserved a moreâ?¦ dignified end. But we don’t always get what we want, or what we deserve, do we? We don’t get our happy endings because after all…

This is reality.”



Mr. Pennebaker’s Tractor (Lexington Avenue Express Book 22)

by Jess Butcher

Mr. Pennebaker’s Tractor (a Lexington Avenue Express short story – 2,100 words)

Except for the occasional Good mornin’ courtesy, I’d never really spoken with Mr. Eldon Pennebaker. I was born in the Mississippi delta town that bore his family name and like most of the other kids, grew up avoiding direct contact with the imposing man who owned one of the largest farms in the state.

In July of â??68, three recent Roosevelt High graduates and a small group of well-wishers stood uneasily beside an idling Greyhound. Lex, Ronnie, and I were on our way to another delta, one located in an unreal black-and-white world we’d seen flashing behind Walter Cronkite. The bus driver was inside Blue’s Cafe and as we waited for him to finish his coffee, my mom clung to me silently. Years earlier, a father I knew only from faded family photos had also taken a Greyhound before melting forever into a snowy Korean-hillside.

The uniformed driver appeared, closing the luggage compartment doors, heralding our imminent departure. I bent and kissed my mom but before I could promise her I’d be home soon she slipped away from me, wilting like a tulip in the Mississippi sun. The armor of my teenage bravado cracked at her abrupt withdrawal and cruel intuition whispered to me; I would never see her again.

Turning toward the cafe, I saw Mr. Pennebaker framed in the two-tone gray haze of a scarred screen window. He stood mopping his broad forehead with a bandana, watching as his man Isaiah approached us. Isaiah was a Negro of indeterminate age, stooped and painfully thin. He removed the green John Deere ball cap covering his salt-and-pepper and reverently extended a hand, first to Lex, then to Ronnie.

Like Isaiah, my two companions were colored, and they greeted the old man respectfully. His warm and ready smile shined in stark contrast to the dour man he constantly accompanied. To this day I’m ashamed to admit I hesitated when Isaiah turned to me and offered his delicate handshake. He must have sensed my awkwardness, but his hand remained extended for the extra instant I needed. It seems a small thing now, but Isaiah’s simple gesture forever changed me.

When the bus pulled away that sweltering morning, Mr. Pennebaker’s Ford pickup truck was parked in front of Blue’s Cafe. As was his custom, Isaiah had crossed the street to his familiar post, sitting on the curb in the shade of the big willow oak in front of Rebel Tractor Repair.

Thirty months later, a lifetime, the Greyhound returned me to Pennebaker, Mississippi on a blustery February morning. A Chevy pickup had replaced the Ford in front of Blue’s Cafe but little else seemed changed. Isaiah was sitting in the same spot beneath the now-leafless oak tree. Smiling broadly, he rose to his feet, waved, and crossed the street to greet me.

“Mornin’ Mr. David,” he said.

“Mornin’ Isaiah,” I replied. He didn’t shake my hand but hugged me instead. This time, I welcomed his touch.

“You’re all back home now,” he whispered, patting my back gently.

“I reckon,” I said softly. Lex and Ronnie had preceded me. They were both resting in the hillside cemetery south of the Greater Spirit Baptist Church.

“Sorry about your momma,” he said.

I nodded but didn’t respond. Her death nine days earlier had been sudden. In spite of my best effort, Uncle Sam and twelve thousand miles had prevented me from attending the funeral.

As the two of us stood for a moment, a buffeting north wind slammed the Bunny Bread-adorned screen door of the cafe, signaling the emergence of Eldon Pennebaker. As Mr. Pennebaker approached, Isaiah touched my arm and with a nod, departed for his post across the street. Oddly, Pennebaker looked younger to me than he had nearly three years earlier.

“Good morning, Mr. Coyle,” he said, his cadence and tone perfect Mississippi delta.

“I bought the old Rebel building when it went bust last year,” he drawled, tilting his head toward the abandoned repair shop acr
