Second Time AroundAperçu
Papier

When empty nester Mallory Farrell inherits her grandmother's run-down tourist shop in Seaport, Oregon, it seems the only sensible thing to do is to sell it. But when her former secret crush, Grayson Matthews, wants to buy the property in order to complete his plans to redevelop the funky town's business district into a soulless, cookie-cutter outdoor mall, Mallory digs in her heels and decides to renovate the property herself.

With a lot of hard work and a little bit of help, Mallory makes incredible progress turning the store into an eclectic home décor shop called Romancing the Home—all while trying to ignore the depressing and decrepit apartment she's living in on the second floor. When the shop catches the eye of a popular renovation TV show producer, Mallory is thrilled—until it becomes clear that her apartment is to be part of the segment as well.

She's tempted to abandon her dreams and the town under a cloud of shame. But perhaps there's more to Grayson than meets the eye. Can he swallow his pride, change his plans, and help Mallory romance her own home and possibly her life?

A brighter future awaits—if she can escape the shadows of the past

Emily Leland sheds no tears when her abusive husband is killed in a bar fight, but what awaits her back home in Sweetwater Crossing is far from the welcome and comfort she expected. First she discovers her father has died under mysterious circumstances. Then the house where the new schoolteacher and his son are supposed to board burns, leaving them homeless. When Emily proposes turning the family home into a boardinghouse, her sister is so incensed that she leaves town.

Alone and broke, her family name sullied by controversy, Emily is determined to solve the mystery of her father's death—and to aid Craig Ferguson, despite her fears of men. The widowed schoolmaster proves to be a devoted father, an innovative teacher, and an unexpected ally. Together they must work to unmask a killer and escape the shadows of their own pasts in order to forge a brighter future.

Code Name EdelweissAperçu
Papier

"What I am looking for—what I desperately need, Mrs. Weiss—is a spy." Adolf Hitler is still a distant rumble on the horizon, but a Jewish spymaster and his courageous spies uncover a storm of Nazi terror in their own backyard.

In the summer of 1933, a man named Adolf Hitler is the new and powerful anti-Semitic chancellor of Germany. But in Los Angeles, no-nonsense secretary Liesl Weiss has concerns much closer to home. The Great Depression is tightening its grip and Liesl is the sole supporter of two children, an opinionated mother, and a troubled brother.

Leon Lewis is a Jewish lawyer who has watched Adolf Hitler's rise to power—and the increase in anti-Semitism in America—with growing alarm. He believes Nazi agents are working to seize control of Hollywood, the greatest propaganda machine the world has ever known. The trouble is, authorities scoff at his dire warnings.

When Liesl loses her job at MGM, her only choice is to work with Leon Lewis and the mysterious Agent Thirteen to spy on her friends and neighbors in her German American community. What Leon Lewis and his spies find is more chilling—and more dangerous—than any of them suspected.

Code Name Edelweissis based on a true story, unknown until recent years: How a lone Jewish lawyer and a handful of amateur spies discovered and foiled Adolf Hitler's plan to take over Hollywood.

Voices off the Ocean: A Literary Visit to Ruth Moore's MaineAperçu
Papier

Ruth Moore was a literary giant of regional fiction during the mid-20th Century, compared favorably to William Faulkner, John Steinbeck, and Flannery O'Connor. Moore was born in the tiny Maine island fishing village of Gotts Island and brought her upbringing to her writing. Few other authors have so authentically captured coastal Maine, its people, and the midcentury as Moore, while also telling universal tales of human drama that went beyond the patch of rocky soil on which her stories were set.

The New York Times declared, "It is doubtful if any American writer has ever done a better job of communicating a people, their talk, their thoughts, their geography, and their way of life." This new collection of her work features excerpts from Moore's novels, ballads, and poetry that showcase her brilliant writing and prove its staying power and influence on regional writing today.

The Weight of AirAperçu
Papier

Two women—bound by blood, torn apart by circumstance—find together that true strength comes in many forms.

In 1911, Mabel MacGinnis is Europe's strongest woman and has performed beside her father in the Manzo Brothers Circus her entire life. But at his unexpected death, she loses everything she's ever known and sets off in the company of acrobat Jake Cunningham for America in hope of finding the mother she's just discovered is still alive.

Isabella Moreau, the nation's most feted aerialist, has given everything to the circus. But age and injury now threaten her security, and Isabella, stalked by old fears, makes a choice that risks everything. When her daughter Mabel appears alongside the man who never wanted to see Isabella again, Isabella is forced to face the truth of where, and in what, she derives her worth.

In this evocative novel from Kimberly Duffy, the meaning of strength takes center stage as the lives of three circus performers become entangled beneath the glittering lights and flying trapeze of Madison Square Garden.

Tell the RestAperçu
Papier

Two estranged childhood friends find themselves on parallel paths to return to the site of the conversion therapy camp that tore them apart.

"A multilayered gem of a novel, polished, intelligent, and moving. Tell the Rest deftly explores courage, drive, happiness, sexuality, love, and more in a riveting story that whisks readers along to a surprising and satisfying conclusion. I could not put it down." —Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times best-selling author of The Last Train to London 

Delia Barnes and Ernest Wrangham met as teens at Celebration Camp, a church-supported conversion therapy program—a dubious, unscientific Christian practice meant to change a person's sexuality. After witnessing a close friend suffer a devastating tragedy in the hands of the camp counselors, they escaped in the night, only to take separate roads to their distant homes. 

They have no idea how each have fared through the years. Delia is a college basketball coach who prides herself on being an empowering and self-possessed role model for her players. But when she gets fired from her elite East Coast college and loses her wife to another woman in rapid succession, she returns to her hometown of Rockside, Oregon to coach the girls' basketball team at her high school alma mater.

Ernest, meanwhile, is a renowned poet in New York City who's left behind his loving husband for a temporary teaching job in Portland, Oregon. His work has always been boundary-pushing, fearless. But the poem he's most wanted to write—about his dangerous escape from Celebration Camp—remains stubbornly out of reach. 

Both remain on a mission to overcome the consequences and inhumane costs of conversion therapy. As events find them hurtling toward each other once again, they both grapple with the necessity of remaining steadfast in one's truth--no matter how slippery that can be. Tell the Rest is a powerful novel about coming to terms--with family, history, violence, loss, sexuality, and ultimately, with love.

The World Itself: Consciousness and the Everything of PhysicsAperçu
Papier

There is a wonderfully weird but real world out there, and we are a part of it. It is time for physics to take life seriously.

Can we ever truly comprehend the universe before we fully understand consciousness and the wonders, and limits, of the mind? Ulf Danielsson, an acclaimed theoretical physicist who has dedicated his career to probing the deepest mysteries of nature, thinks not. As he dismantles the arguments of esteemed mathematicians and scientists, who would substitute their mathematical models for reality and equate the mind to a computer, he makes a lucid and passionate case that it is nature, full of beauty and meaning, which must compel us. In challenging established worldviews, he also takes a fresh look at major philosophical debates, including the notion of free will.

Witty and fearless, The World Itself is essential reading for anyone curious about the profound questions surrounding life, the universe, and everything.

The World Itself offers a bold perspective on mathematics, physics, and the nature of reality. There’s much I agree with and less that I don’t, but Ulf Danielsson, a leading theoretical physicist, proves himself an insightful and patient guide through some of the universe’s deepest mysteries.” —Brian Greene, author of The Fabric of the Cosmos and Until the End of Time

“Engrossing. . . . Danielsson’s clarity of thought and expression and his use of illuminating literary and historical references are equal to the quality of his writing. Science ‘popularizing’ doesn’t get much more comprehensible, or provocative, than this.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Danielsson takes readers on an odyssey through the width and depth of his field, and it is truly a fascinating journey. Touching on subjects as diverse as evolutionary biology, philosophy, and even popular culture, Danielsson makes his topics both appreciably substantial and approachable.” —Library Journal (starred review)

My Body and Other Crumbling Empires: Lessons for Healing in a World That Is Sick Aperçu
Papier

“Those suffering from chronic illnesses will find a compassionate friend in Medford, and those seeking to live a more justice-focused life, a willing guide. Her sharp insights will help readers reimagine healing and wholeness.”—Publishers Weekly

We are living in a world that is sick. Both literally sick, with 60 percent of adults in the US living with a chronic illness and rising rates of autoimmune diseases in particular, including long COVID, and figuratively sick, facing ever increasing rates of burnout, anxiety, and disconnection.

As a writer, activist, and theology student, Lyndsey Medford was used to critiquing unsustainable medical, environmental, economic, and social systems from a theoretical perspective. But when her autoimmune disorder roared out of remission, she discovered that her own body's systems lived at the very real vortex of all those systems' dysfunction.

Learning to cooperate with her body would require her to change every aspect of her life--and in the process, to seek a radical reimagining of the world, from a place where sickness is an individual affliction to an interdependent ecosystem where sustainability is a community way of life. In this beautiful and inspiring book, Medford draws on her experiences with a rare autoimmune disease to illuminate the broader lessons we need to learn, in order to heal what ails us individually and communally. Whether our burnout stems from illness, systemic racism, poverty, or simply sin's separation, we're all in need of hope, and we are called to heal together.

My Body and Other Crumbling Empires points out the beauty and ubiquity of our limitations; the importance of accessibility, broadly construed; the interconnected nature of individual and public health; and the badly needed wisdom we have gained from living with our particular bodies.

Endless Grace: Prayers Inspired by the PsalmsAperçu
Papier

Endless Grace helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 76-150, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Whitaker Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. While each prayer corresponds to a particular psalm and touches on its themes and ideas, it is not a new translation of the Psalms or an attempt to modernize or contextualize their content or language. Rather, the prayers are responses to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and beautiful hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.

Walking the Way of Harriet Tubman: Public Mystic and Freedom FighterAperçu
Papier

Harriet Tubman, freedom fighter and leader in the Underground Railroad, is one of the most significant figures in US history. Her courage and determination in bringing enslaved people to freedom have established her as an icon of the abolitionist movement. But behind the history of the heroine called "Moses" was a woman of deep faith.

In Walking the Way of Harriet Tubman, Therese Taylor-Stinson introduces Harriet, a woman born into slavery whose unwavering faith in God and practices in prayer and contemplation carried her through insufferable abuse and hardship. Her deep spirituality rooted in mysticism, Christianity, and African indigenous beliefs sustained her escape from slavery and led her to an internal liberation, giving her the strength and purpose to lead others on the road to freedom.

Harriet's lived spirituality illuminates a profound path forward for those of us in the fight for justice and equity--a freedom which Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and people of color must cultivate to be fully who we are called to be for ourselves and our communities. As the luminous significance of Harriet Tubman's spiritual life is revealed, so too is the path to our own spiritual truth, advocacy, and racial justice as we follow in her footsteps--for Black lives and all people of color.

Devastated by the loss of her beloved older brother to cancer, Bugz returns to the place where she can always find solace and strength- the Floraverse. Over the past year, she has gained back all that she had lost in that virtual world, and while the remaining ClanLess members still plot against her, she is easily able to overcome their attacks.

Zaidy's War: Four Armies, Three Continents, Two Brothers. One Man's Impossible Story of EnduranceAperçu
Papier

Benzion Malik was on a path of discovery. He was keen to learn about everything in life through the teachings of his faith and only something cataclysmic could throw him off this course. In 1939, the 21-year-old Benzion was called up to the Romanian Army. Little did he know that he would not be a free man until 1945.

During six long years, Benzion served in three further armies. He was forced into hard labor and was constantly abused because of his Jewishness by the Hungarian army. He was then made to serve the German army which simply needed disposable bodies to be targets for Soviet bullets. Finally, the Soviet army needed young men like Benzion to help with the effort to fight the Nazis.

None of these acts of service and servitude were easy. Benzion was in a continuous dance with death but clung to life through the goodness of strangers. When WWII was over, Benzion had to make the 2,600-kilometer walk home and narrowly escaped being poisoned to death by mushroom soup. At home he was confronted with the ruins of his family, community, and people. Yet, he was not defeated.

Lovingly written by his grandson, this book provides an account of a man's resilience to not give up on the world after extreme destruction, but instead to help rebuild a community and practice Tikkun Olam - Repairing of the World - by believing in cosmic justice and leaving an imprint on his family, friends, and strangers for generations.

What Makes You Come Alive: A Spiritual Walk with Howard ThurmanAperçu
Papier

"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."—Howard Thurman

Known as the godfather of the civil rights movement, Howard Thurman served as a spiritual adviser to Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders and activists in the 1960s. Thurman championed silence, contemplation, common unity, and nonviolence as powerful dimensions of social change. But Dr. Lerita Coleman Brown didn't learn about him during her years of spiritual-direction training. Only when a friend heard of her longing to encounter the work of Black contemplatives did she finally learn about Thurman, his mystical spirituality, and his liberating ethic.

In What Makes You Come Alive, Brown beckons readers into their own apprenticeship with Thurman. Brown walks with us through Thurman's inimitable life and commitments as he summons us into centering down, encountering the natural world, paying attention to sacred synchronicity, unleashing inner authority, and recognizing the genius of the religion of Jesus. We learn from Thurman's resilience in the psychologically terrorizing climate of the Jim Crow South, his encounters with Quakers and with Mahatma Gandhi, and his sense of being guided by the Spirit. Each chapter illuminates an aspect of Thurman's work and includes reflection questions and spiritual practices.

Decades after their deaths, sages like Howard Thurman offer spiritual kinship and guidance for our contemporary life. Thurman's spirituality enlivened an entire movement, and it can awaken us to intimacy with God and to authentic action today.

This newest poetry book by P.J. Thomas is "...a three-alarm fire at the corner of Romanticism and Magical Realism."

Waves choreographs and gesticulates through gorgeous and heartfelt lyric images. The book describes "Waves -waves as in greeting, waves as in movement, waves as in water, or emotions that overflow..." It documents "an ever-transforming world with an ironic tenderness that [readers] find so satisfying."

Waves concerns itself with the movement of celestial bodies, the natural beauty of Canada, and the searching human heart.

Séries: True Crime Explicit (8)

Not all fairy tales have happy endings.

Belle Gunness was in for a hard life from the start. Born the first of many children to an impoverished family in rural Norway, her days were filled with abuse, grueling labor, and little hope for anything else. So when her sister offered to bring her to America, that golden land of opportunity, it's no surprise that she jumped at the chance to finally live a better life.

The next years are no easier, but eventually, she finds herself with everything she ever wanted: a husband, a home, beautiful children, and most importantly, money. Then her husband, Mads, dies a sudden and mysterious death, leaving her with a generous life insurance policy. When Belle remarries, everyone sees it as a testament to her endurance. But then her next husband dies, as do a countless number of suitors who follow.

Is Belle just unlucky in love? Or is there something far more sinister happening behind the closed doors of the widow's homestead.

But Sam's self-imposed cocoon is threatened after her eccentric father-in-law Harold stumbles back into her world to announce that he is getting remarried to the mysterious Marcie Porter, who is burdened by her own complex family history.

The last thing Sam wants is to get involved with Harold's new endeavor.

Shepherd on Duty: Promises of God You Can TrustAperçu
Papier

The world is a noisy place, beckoning to us from every direction. Distractions are inevitable. Endless curve balls hit us from a blind spot. These wreak havoc on our peace, but if we take time to listen to God's still, small voice, we learn His promises are true―God is a Promise Keeper.

"The Lord is faithful to ALL His promises and loving toward ALL He has made" Psalm 145:13.

The Bible shows us God's unchanging character. He never changes. We often think He does, but our own heart is deceptive. God can't lie. [Hebrews 6:18] We will all face challenges in this life, but we can anchor our souls in One who will meet all our needs. [Hebrews 6:19]

Lamentations 3:25 tells us that the LORD is good to those whose hope is in Him and those who seek Him. We can count on God to fulfill the promises that have our name attached, but they require obedience and faith on our part. If we trust Him, we will seek Him with all our hearts. The woman with blood was healed by her faith in One who could keep a promise. She thought and then acted, and God rewarded her with answered prayer.

Joshua 21:45 NIV tells us that not one of all the Lord's good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled. And as heirs of Christ, the same is true for you and me.

We filled this book with 37 Promises of God you can cling to. Keep it with you daily as you navigate uncertainty. It will encourage you and give you hope.

Séries: The Talented (1)

Most London socialites dream of marrying for love or status, but Contessa’s wedding is about justice—and revenge.

Nathanial Woodrow is known on the streets of London as the Beast, leader of the fearsome Lion gang who mark their victims with three slashes on their face. Since her mother was found dead with the signature slashes years ago, Contessa has wanted nothing more than to see her murderer brought to justice. However, the Beast has been impeccable at maintaining his façade as the high society Mr. Nathanial Woodrow, and nobody has been able to gather enough evidence to convict him. When the Beast unexpectedly asks Contessa’s father, the Chief of the Royal Police, for her hand in marriage, Contessa and her father hatch a plan to bring him down from the inside.

As Contessa enters the lion’s den in search of evidence to convict the Beast, she finds that not everything is as she once thought. Her father’s work, hunting down Talented that use their magic to rule the criminal underworld, is thrown into question with each glimpse of the kind-hearted man beneath the mask of a hardened gang leader. As Contessa navigates her search for justice, she finds herself questioning what side she’s really on, and why she finds herself drawn to a man she’s supposed to hate.

Benny Basilworth makes connections. A rare intellect, he sees things that others don't see and draws conclusions that others completely fail to grasp. He has the kind of mind that can make a person a national sensation on the television gameshow The Connection Game- and the kind of mind that can be the target of predators.

Despite his brilliance, Benny and his family find themselves destitute, living in a basement apartment with one tiny window that affords them only the view of the feet of passersby on the street above. It is from this vantage point that Benny once again starts making connections. Mad, inconceivable connections. Connections that can change lives . . . and turn the entire world upside down.

Humorous, surprising, wise, and remarkably perceptive, The Connection Game is a novel unlike any other and one that you are unlikely to forget.

Run With It: A True Story of Parkinson's, Marathons, the Pandemic, and LoveAperçu
Papier

COVID-19 disrupted the premier road races known as the World Marathon Majors (WMM) that take place annually in Berlin, London, Chicago, Boston, Tokyo, and New York City. Normally spanning the calendar from March to November, the pandemic forced a rescheduling of the 2021 WMM such that all the races would take place during a six week stretch in the fall. At age 60, with only a single previous marathon under his belt and recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Joe Drake decided to run all six of these races on the compressed schedule.

In Run With It, writing in a style that is charmingly humorous and informative, Joe marks his debut as an author. He tells of his transformation into a marathoner, the physical and logistical challenges of running these races amid a world eager to emerge from a global catastrophe, and how this quest with the help of friends, family, and the running community allowed him to devise a strategy for coping with Parkinson’s.

However, very few approaches look at how you literally move through life. Every breath, gesture and facial expression are (usually unconscious) choices that influence how we navigate life’s challenges. While talk can often lead to paralysis by analysis, listening to the body is a direct line to the instant messages being sent every second by the brain and nervous system.

Drawing from Feldenkrais bodywork, powerful archetypes, contemplative spirituality, the Gurdjieff Work and more — and with QR codes linking directly to somatic lessons you can experience yourself — You’ve Got The Power! is a refreshing manual for change...from the inside-out.

The saying “we contain multitudes,” while true, can disempower us from the possibility of ever attaining satisfaction. You’ve Got The Power! offers readers four paths: the way of the warrior, teacher, healer and visionary. These four cornerstone archetypes live in mythology, history and in our own stories. Using her lifetime of research in movement, Lavinia Plonka offers a revolutionary approach to getting out of your way by utilizing humanity’s forgotten sixth sense—the power of sensation and embodiment.

Using pleasurable movement explorations, self-inquiry and practical life exercises, You’ve Got the Power! introduces readers the the wisdom of the body. Each archetype has a physical “center of presence.” Readers will learn how to use these centers: The Warrior: pelvis, Teacher: chest, Healer: hands and Visionary: eyes to develop embodied presence and use it for personal mastery. Each archetype also has a “superpower” and a “kryptonite.” Learning to develop the superpower, while acknowledging the potential pitfalls are part of the journey towards realizing our dreams—whether it’s for healing, learning or achieving.

The four archetypes embody our potential to be the change we want to see in the world. By reconnecting with the intelligent nervous system and developing our kinesthetic sense, we become more aware of ourselves, how we impact others and how others influence our actions. The ability to stand our ground, connect with compassion, heal old wounds and envision our possibilities will be the takeaway from this ground breaking look at body/mind connections.

A disgraced swordsman who has been living off his reputation as a former member of a notorious mercenary band leaves town one step ahead of justice.

In search of employment, he decides to head for the seaport town of Cray, a former haunt where he hasn't yet disgraced himself, unlike so many others. His past, however, soon catches up with him in the form of Julia, a notorious thief and sometimes assassin. He finds himself thrust into an impossible situation, caught in the midst of a bitter feud between the city's two ruling families and forced to embark on what will surely prove to be a suicide mission.

A novella of sword play, betrayal, and derring-do, seen from the perspective of a cynical anti-hero who struggles to live up to expectations but excels at living down to them.

“A cheerfully brutal story of betrayal and skulduggery, vicious fun from start to finish.” – Adrian Tchaikovsky

“A quick, highly readable, swords & sorcery romp… you can see Whates has learned his craft.” – Mark Lawrence

The Double-Edged Sword is a slice of pure golden-age sword and sorcery action, packed with rogues, betrayals and dubious morals.” – Jen Williams

“Action, deception, a daring heist and lots of twists and turns. Excellent world building and intriguing characters. I really enjoyed it!” – Gail Z. Martin

In Laura and the Kick Boxer, a chance encounter on the N Train changes the destiny of two people lucky enough to find each other. The Manicurist takes us to the most sacred of all spaces, the neighborhood nail salon, and its manicurist who struggles with her gift of clairvoyance and the people she wants to help.

A thrilling account of the creation of the so-called lie detector, exploring shocking murders and dramatic trials to uncover the true nature of the polygraph. This tense true crime story is perfect for fans of American Predator and The Invention of Murder.

Late one evening in the summer of 1922, Henry Wilkens burst through the doors of the emergency room covered in his wife's blood. But was he a grieving husband, or a ruthless killer who conspired with bandits to have her murdered?

To find out, the San Francisco police turned to technology and a new machine that had just been invented in Berkeley by a rookie detective, a visionary police chief, and a teenage magician with a showman's touch.

John Larson, Gus Vollmer and Leonarde Keeler hoped the lie detector would make the justice system fairer - but the flawed device soon grew too powerful for them to control. It poisoned their lives, turned fast friends into bitter enemies, and as it conquered America and the world, it transformed our relationship with the truth in ways that are still being felt.

As new forms of lie detection gain momentum in the present day, Tremors in the Blood reveals the incredible truth behind the creation of the polygraph, through gripping true crime cases featuring explosive gunfights, shocking twists and high-stakes courtroom drama.

Touching on psychology, technology and the science of the truth, Tremors in the Blood is a vibrant, atmospheric thriller, and a warning from history: beware what you believe.

Séries: Catriona Winters (1)

A scandalous murder sparks mystery and romance in Victorian London.

Suffocated by the constraints of high society, Catriona Winters yearns to prove herself as a journalist. So when a nobleman is found slain, his body drifting off the Limehouse docks, she heads to the scene. There she clashes with the infuriating Inspector Thomas Marlowe, who is set on keeping the details of his inquiry out of the headlines.

Meanwhile, her childhood friend Nathaniel, heir of the Viscount Ashford, has returned from an unexplained sojourn in the country. The deeply buried attraction between them flares once more, but rumours swirl about his absence and a potential scandal his father seems determined to quash.

As Catriona struggles with her feelings for Nathaniel and her animosity towards Marlowe, she wades ever deeper into the secrets of Limehouse. But a second killing soon shocks London, leaving no one above suspicion. Catriona must unmask the murderer before he strikes again—and before she makes herself his next victim.

The winner will be crowned Ambassador’s Bride. The losers will meet certain death.

When you’re living inside a dwarf planet in the cold abyss of space, life is only easy if you’re rich. 17-year-old Marishel Vance works as a seamstress – but when she’s selected to compete in a brutal contest for the Ambassador’s hand in marriage, she’s quickly catapulted into a life-threatening struggle.

Marishel hates the idea of fighting for some stuck-up rich guy – no matter how handsome he is. But after her attempts to escape are thwarted, she becomes desperate to find a way to end the Blood Match and save the lives of the girls she’s training with. The key could lie in Ambassador Quin himself ... but as she tries to win his friendship, her growing feelings for him only complicate the matter.

As the Blood Match looms closer, Marishel spirals deeper into a world of intrigue, danger, punishment, and secrets. Trusting the wrong people means game over. If Marishel wants to save herself – and the other fifty-nine girls sentenced to death – she’ll have to break every rule in the book to do it...

As a riveting and imaginative science fiction novel that expertly weaves exhilarating action and nail-biting suspense with a futuristic death game like no other, Hierarchy of Blood is a page-turning read that’s perfect for fans of books like The Selection and The Hunger Games.

Stories in this erotica collection are meditations on love and sexual desire. They can be silly, sad, sensuous, sinful. One review described them as "exquisite, thoughtful vignettes that individually by turns inspire reflection, evoke startled recognition and collectively offer considerable insight into the tragicomedy that is the constant human search for connection."

While the goal of these couple-friendly stories is both "titillation and reflection," they should appeal to fans of Scheherezade, the fiction of Milan Kundera, Philip Roth, Mary Gaitskill, John Updike, Susan Minot, Alberto Moravia and Candace Bushnell.

Séries: Blood Fae Druid (2)

Part sun fae, part blood fae and part druid?

Lane Callaghan almost died six months ago. In doing so, she finally achieved the one thing she always wanted and finally realized she never needed—the sun fae's respect.

Once again thrust into the unwanted role of heroine, Lane and her sisters are hired—some would say forced—into another job. Sun fae are vanishing without a trace. As Lane reluctantly begins to peel back the layers of the investigation, she discovers sun fae secrets and shame that hit a little too close to home and threaten to tear her family apart.

Lane must navigate a treacherous path through lies, secrets, and escaped homicidal druids, all with the jaws of Teddy's black wolf hanging over her neck.

The catastrophic Purge War at the end of the twenty-first century destroys planet Earth, jeopardizing the future for the remnants of humanity. Horrific repercussions roll across the ages until, generations later, a scientific group called the Time Forward Project harnesses a deep-space wormhole in which they can travel through time. They find the portal unstable and shrinking, but they have little choice but to take desperate, drastic measures and journey back to prevent the war.

Kristen Winters is an angry, determined young woman who is fed up with the miserable circumstances that life doles out. In a bold move, she escapes and undergoes the horrific genetic modification required to become a warrior-like time agent. As the protégé of the tough, cantankerous Richard Kants, her potential threatens to overtake his prowess. Kants has his own motives for changing the past, and he orchestrates his own scheme on the side to improve the odds. Their uneasy partnership dissipates when he is assassinated by a rival group from the future called the Keplers, who thwart their missions at every turn. With his death, Kristen mysteriously finds herself newly partnered with a bewildered man from the early twenty-first century.

Hunter Coburn is a hot shot AI scientist who works for the FBI. He has pending wedding plans, a high-paying job he loves, and is a geek with an I-Want-It-All attitude, but suddenly must make sense of the glimpses of the future he sees in freakish jumps. Together, Hunter and Kristen risk everything to fight through the destructive forces in the past, present, and future. In doing so, they must discover and rise to their own destinies through the vivid, fast-paced, nearly incomprehensible challenges they face. If they fail, all is lost.

A provocative, imaginative, and endlessly compelling work of science fiction, Future's Dark Past signals the arrival of a distinctive new voice and a story that will simultaneously haunt and electrify you.

This is a fantasy. Of a city of water and glass. Of drowned things and lost memories lying just below its surface. Of concrete slums, and a decaying Oracle Tower. And a deep underground. 

It is also a fantasy of orphan children. Like Dagny Losh. She is an escape artist. Not a chosen profession but a survival tactic, thrust upon her at a young age to break free from poverty and violence, fever and flood. While others perished, Dagny emerged into a privileged world of polished brass gates and opportunity. But she is an imposter, a misfit in fine clothes. Perfumed with dirty fingernails.

Now, at seventeen, Dagny remains rudderless and lonely. Longing for a connection to a changing world. What she finds is a fragment of her old life, before the river washed everything away. A fragment once thought forever lost. And it will take all she has to protect it.

Ever the Night Road is a coming-of-age adventure story. Dagny and an array of companions undertake a high-stakes quest guided by the stars and ancient myth, encountering danger from both criminal and supernatural forces. Along the way, Dagny will discover the bonds of true friendship, young love and the depths of her own bravery in a brutal and enchanting world.

This book is the result of two year’s intensive study of physical mediumship, both past and present; of the ‘dead’ physically returning, of ‘spirit doctors’ curing “incurable” patients, of interviewing numerous mediums, and of joining a development circle in order to become a medium myself. To say it's been a wild ride would be an understatement. I’ve stepped into a mysterious, compelling, addictive and utterly mind-blowing arena, where I’ve seen things I never thought possible; where I’ve communicated directly with family in the afterlife, had spirits take over my body, and felt the physical touch of spirits. I’ve heard and seen ‘dead’ people, been operated on by a “spirit doctor”, and I’ve been poked, prodded and tickled by spirit children.

Excerpts: ‘My little son spoke to me… and afterwards materialized within 5 inches of my face. My little boy asked for his mummy and spoke about a bottle. “Don’t you remember? You put it in my hand when I was in my coffin?”

‘Dr. Reynolds appeared, fully materialised. He chatted to me just as any doctor would chat with a patient in his consulting room, taking my head in his materialised hands and examining it.’

‘The face was quite solid, without colouring but obviously alive; the lips moved in an attempt to answer me… “I have no pain now; I do not suffer as I used to … isn’t it glorious?”

‘A number of spirit children materialised. They were mischievous and set-about ruffling-up a gentleman guest’s hair, pulling his tie and tickling his legs, with yelps of delight.’

Queen Belle is ready to put her dead father, and the years of his abuse, in the ground. Moving forward with her new marriage to the vampire king, Alex, she is eager to rule their nation of vampires, witches, and humans together.

But when someone steals dangerous supplies from the Apothecary, people fear that an illegal cursecaster may live among them.

Anything.

Convinced that only she can save Alex, Belle seeks help from the mysterious Order of Spellcasters, a magical organization founded by her father to preserve the history of magic.

The most dangerous lies are the ones that use the truth to sell themselves.

Medical treatment determined by artificial intelligence could do more than make Hope Kestrel's career. It could revolutionize healthcare.

What the Seattle surgeon doesn't know is the AI has a hidden fatal flaw, and the people covering it up will stop at nothing to dominate the world's healthcare—and its profits. Soon, Hope is made the scapegoat for a patient's death, and only Jacie Stone, a gifted intern with a knack for computer science, is willing to help search for the truth.

But her patient's death is only the tip of the conspiracy's iceberg. The Director, Marah Maddox, is plotting a use for the AI far outside the ethical bounds of her physician's oath. A staggering plan capable of reducing human lives to their DNA code, redefining the concepts of sickness and health, and delivering the power of life and death decisions into the hands of those behind the AI.

Even if the algorithm accidentally discards some who are treatable in order to make that happen…

J.L. Lycette's powerful, near-future thriller, The Algorithm Will See You Now, is perfect for fans of Blake Crouch and Rob Hart.

Springtide ushers in a season of bloom and fertility in Hazelfeur, but it also heralds the season of the bear — Artio's season, one which she rules over with relentless vengeance.

I've heard old tales of the goddess, tales from when she was green to motherhood, young and tender and forgiving, but it is hard to imagine such a thing when my knowledge of her is shrouded in red. She wishes to make the people of Hazelfeur suffer, and her army of bears, material and spectral, make ever-nearer attacks on our village.

This coming spring, I fear death.

Springtide has sprung, and the bear goddess Artio has awakened. For Rhoswen, sole Bearslayer of Hazelfeur, this means a season of overwhelm as vicious bears wreak violence upon her village. With one death too many and an insufferable anxiety haunting her, she sets out to liberate her people from Artio’s bearspawn for good, even though to end the goddess’s reign would mean to leave her without purpose.

In her search for the vengeful Artio, Rhoswen stumbles upon an enchanting forest maiden with secrets in her eyes and mysteries in her veins, a beauty which suddenly and unexpectedly captivates the Bearslayer beyond reason. Then she discovers the maiden is bound to Artio’s forest and longs desperately for freedom, and Rhoswen’s resolution hardens with passion.

She will unfetter Hazelfeur, and she will free her enchantress.

Séries: Locker Room Love (5)

When a college hockey player needs the help of a sexy older attorney, he gets more than he bargained for when trying to sort out the troubles in his career. Falling in love was never part of either man’s plan.

Corrigan Ellery wants to play in the NHL, and the way he hopes to get there is through D1 hockey. His plan is solid but begins falling apart the instant he steps onto the college campus. Old traditions and stereotypes lock him out before he's even in. With no options for failure, he must make his plan work, which is why he has no time to complicate his life by getting involved with a sexy lawyer who is ten years his senior and part of the society that is impeding his plans. But boy, he’d enjoy some bedroom game misconduct with the counselor.

Logical and meticulous, Sacha Weymouth, who is adept at predicting and controlling outcomes, is a successful defense attorney, slated to one day be a partner at a prestigious firm—that is, until a rogue client causes his demotion. Now, he's a step above a gopher at the university law center assigned to getting a contract signed by a hot-shot hockey player. Instead of a signature, he has his life flipped in a direction he never saw coming… to which he objects. But will his heart overrule his head?

Corrigan’s and Sacha’s lives should never have collided. Now they’re left questioning if they’re standing in the way of the other’s future goals, or if there’s room for redirection.

Séries: Mwindaji (1)

Dark Blood Awakens is a paranormal urban fantasy incorporating Black girl magic with myths from the African diaspora.

As a child, Makeda’s mom forced her to abandon sorcery. Instead, she pursued a career in nursing while killing monsters with her family of mwindaji. For over a millennium, the mwindaji have hunted Korlemo, a 1000-year-old vampire.

While working in Haiti, Makeda’s desire to recapture her sorcery skills increases. When a lead takes her to a Kentucky rural hospital searching for Korlemo, she uses Baoumali, the language of sorceresses, to reclaim her heritage. During her investigation, Makeda develops a steamy romance with the local sheriff and uncovers a macabre secret the hospital administration will kill to keep silent.

With time running out, Makeda must recapture her sorcery and choose where her alliances lie. If the mwindaji cannot destroy the monsters haunting the hospital, people will die—starting with her boyfriend.

Séries: Haven Cove (2)

Her song is a lure he cannot resist.

Even after brokering a deal with the vicious merfolk who stalk his offshore fishing lanes, Captain Killian Quinn has had one too many onboard his boat for comfort. His livelihood, and life, as well as that of his crew’s, depends on his ability to maintain peace. One wrong move and the Dawn Chaser could become a floating charcuterie board, and he’d never see again the one mermaid he wouldn’t mind take a little nibble out of him.

A sinister craving for human flesh leaves Lorelei Roth with no other choice. She must aid the study of one of her own to find a more permanent solution to protect the ones she loves. As enthralled by all her sharp edges and seductive siren song as her fiancé may be, the threat of becoming the wrong kind of snack is never far enough away.

While they’re close to a breakthrough treatment, doubt gnaws at Lorelei as she watches a fellow mermaid languish in a tank, enduring endless rounds of tests and denied the healing touch of the sea. Is one mermaid’s declining health and happiness too steep a price for freedom? And if so, what sacrifices is Lorelei willing to make to set it right?

Note to readers: This is a summary of Brianna Wiest’s book The Mountain is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage into Self-Mastery and not the original book designed to enhance your reading experience!

About This Summary!

This book deals with self-sabotage. It explores the reasons why we do it, when we do it, and how to stop doing it—for good. Coexisting but conflicting needs create self-sabotaging behaviors. This is why we resist efforts to change, often until they feel completely futile. But by extracting crucial insight from our most damaging habits, building emotional intelligence by better understanding our brains and bodies, releasing past experiences at a cellular level, and learning to act as our highest potential future selves, we can step out of our own way and into our potential. For centuries, the mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face, especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb. In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves.

Séries: The Aphotic (1)

Sometimes, the ties that bind can break you.

It's 1975, and nine-year-old Talia is not happy. Everything has been different since her little sister Alex came along. Since her dad left. Since all her mother's attention has been focused on anyone and everything but Talia.

It's definitely all Alex's fault. Talia hates Alex. She just wants things to be like they used to be. When her dad was home. When everyone cared about her. When there was no Alex.

Then she's given a book. One that's special. One that seems only for her. One that can help her take all her anger and frustration and rage and … unleash it.

Now, Talia will make them all pay.

But everything comes with a price. And some things must be paid in blood.

"Seriously. F*ck this kid!" – Jennifer Dinsmore, editor of The Aphotic series

"Delightfully disturbing." – Eric Leland, author of Inhuman: A Supernatural Thriller

"Bad Blood hit me like a dark alley assault while walking through the streets of hell. Elliott pulls no punches and has zero problem scratching his razor-sharp nails down the chalkboard inside your brain. An alarmingly visceral assault on the senses, Bad Blood is a root canal without the gas that will make you squirm even as you greedily turn the pages for more." – Philip Fracassi, author of A Child Alone With Strangers

Mo thought he'd planned well for the end of civilization. What he hadn't planned on was having his dying neighbor's little boy thrust into his care:

"Please, I beg you, take him! He's only four, he won't survive on his own. You're the only one I know who isn't vaccinated!"

In the aftermath of Covid-19, the world's population is dying en masse from the very thing that was supposed to protect them: the vaccine. Mo joins forces with a small band of survivors: a retired schoolteacher, some inner-city gang members, a med school dropout, and an IT specialist. They soon realize they are the only refuge for the unvaccinated, and now orphaned, young children.

As individuals, they have only one thing in common: they aren't vaccinated.

As a group, they have only one goal: find, save, and care for all the orphaned children.

They must face untold horrors while breaking into the homes of the dead to rescue abandoned children before it's too late. But not everyone is on their side...

Séries: Ignisar (3)

A clandestine marriage? Easy. Not falling for the princess before she jumps across the wormhole and leaves him forever? Impossible.

Rax Varon, head of security on the interstellar pleasure cruise the Ignisar, loathes the Royals of his home planet, especially House Lysero, the palace lording over his home city. The last thing he expects returning from a visit to his mother is the insufferable only princess of House Lysero hitching a ride on his shuttle.

Kateri Lysero is desperate to escape her arranged marriage into powerful and dangerous House Hasantis. Running from her pristine public image, her abusive uncle, and her distant mother, she stows away on the first deep-space shuttle she can find, hoping to vanish among the stars. She never dreamed her survival would hinge on convincing the grumpy green brute piloting the shuttle to hide her away on his infamous sex cruise.

Reluctantly playing bodyguard, Rax helps Kateri hide in plain sight while also keeping her out of trouble. But when trouble finds her, he knows the only way to keep her safe is to teach her to defend herself. When a mysterious Royal arrives on his ship, he learns there’s a better way to protect her. He has to marry her.

Join Rax and Kateri on a wild, emotional ride through the stars where bodyguard-infused enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience/protection, and steamy training montages never felt so good.

Dr. Jane Greer, a classically trained therapist, began with the belief that the bond that exists between the living and the dead is not purely a psychological one, but is, in fact, much more dynamic and empowering. In the shattering aftermath of her own mother's death, Dr. Greer learned—and shows us as well—that transcommunication is not simply a "hello from heaven" but a powerful therapeutic tool that is available to any of us. Through this communication, the pain of grieving can be made more bearable, ambivalent relationships can be healed, and a loved one's messages can bring relief and joy.

Sunny and his kinfolk were content with their way of life. During the dry season, their clan lived alone. They hunted whenever they chose, gathered an array of plants, told stories, and took part in debates. In the rainy season, they united with the rest of their tribe. They formed a temporary city, feasted, held dances and played games.

They could have lived like this forever. But a strange and foreign people had ideas of their own...

Appearing out of nowhere, these aliens looked completely different. They smelled different. They even dressed differently. And they had the most peculiar set of habits.

These people did not live with the earth. They exploited the earth; imposing monocultures and intensive farming. They were not content with their lot. They were possessed by an insatiable desire to consume. And they had no sense of freedom. They were beholden to a never-ending list of outlandish concepts; things such as "Hierarchy", "Patriarchy", "Monarchy", "Monogamy", "God", "Punishments", "Ownership", "Inequality", "Money", "Work" and "Tax".

Sunny and his kinfolk faced the toughest decision in their history...

They could wage war on these imposters. But their enemies were strong. They had already killed hundreds-of-thousands of indigenous people.

They could flee. But these imperialists would surely follow. They would push them into the sea, the mountains or the desert.

Their clan needed another solution. But what could it be? Could they negotiate with this violent foe? Could they form a pact? Could they create a kind of alliance?

Sunny had no idea. But he was compelled by a duty to find out. This was his time. And he was willing to risk his life, to save the people he loved...

Séries: City of Gods (1)

The Knights of Ancora. Heroes protecting the city—and the people hunting her down.

Created to steal superhuman powers, Danielle Langston went underground in the city of Ancora since she put the man she loves in a coma.

A chance for redemption comes in the form of a shady deal: a miraculous cure in exchange for a dangerous artifact guarded by the Knights. But the robbery turns into a train wreck when Danielle severely injures their leader, cementing her place at the head of their shit list.

Raleigh West has been a Knight of Ancora for five years—and called Soul-Eater in terrified whispers for just as long. After his best friend is nearly killed by a nobody girl with a power as deadly as his own, Raleigh makes it his life's mission to track her down—and make her pay.

Trapped in a conspiracy threatening the city, Danielle and Raleigh are forced to team up despite the explosive animosity between them. To save both Ancora and the men in their hearts, they must unravel a web of lies, betrayal and deceit to unlock the key to their true powers.

Time Traveled strings together a slew of travel stories that are punchy and fun to read. The author seamlessly alternates being witty, poignant, and philosophical. The author lays herself bare and doesn't flinch whenever she feels vulnerable. Themes such as nature, history, and art rank high on her literary list, as well as loneliness and the importance of having someone to love. Tripping over the remnants of who we used to be, this explorer diligently follows the breadcrumbs left by those who came before.

This book is an installment of the Memory Road Trip series, a compendium of travel stories collected over 25 years. Her memoirs are not travel journals, per se, but rather introspective journeys to the mysterious self.

Séries: Old Bridge Inn (2)

A standalone lesbian historical romance.

Clockmender Hannah Croft's friend Molly has been arrested for her connections to a Jacobin club. In the tumultuous political climate of 1790s Britain, being in the wrong place at the wrong time is enough to land Molly in gaol. Hannah's one hope to free her lies in the testimony of housemaid Lucy Boone.

Lucy has spent her entire life moving from one household to another, never forming a true connection with her fellow servants—nor with her occasional lovers. She prefers it that way. When you can rely on yourself, why would you need anyone else? But when Hannah Croft asks for help, she cannot say no.

Working together to free Molly, the two women don't try to ignore their growing attraction. For Hannah, Lucy is a beacon of hope at a difficult time. And Lucy finds herself loving her new life, made welcome by Hannah and her friends.

But their situation is fraught with danger. Rumours abound of an informant in their midst, and a sinister man from the magistrate's office dogs Lucy's steps. One wrong move could land them in gaol—or splinter their new relationship from within.

The book opens in 2014, the 70th anniversary of D-Day when the teacher of twins Nick and Emily Doyle presents them with their summer holiday project. Photographs and conversations with older family members regarding war memories were required.

This would be a verbal portrait of the part they had played in saving the country from possible invasion. Due to parental work commitments, the twins were entrusted with the company of their grandparents as baby-sitters and an opportunity for in-depth talks arose.

Billy Doyle, now a Grandad affectionately known as ‘Pops,’ reminisces about his home life, adventures, friendships and self-doubts during the first few years of WW2.

Billy Doyle – Accidental Hero shows another side of life during WW2. Through Billy’s hilarious adventures and frequent mishaps, we see what real life was like for some young people in a country at war.

The Hangman: VengeanceAperçu
Livre audio numérique

Jericho sighed as he pointed the Sword of Caine at the Hangman. “You made this personal when you killed...There’s no coming back from that.”

The Hangman has returned from the unknown dimension he was sent to at the end of The Death Brothers: A Supernatural Awakening. Now, he only has vengeance on his mind for the people who he once considered friends and allies. They include heroes like the Grand Librarian, Alexander Merryweather, the demon hunter, Father Tom Padilla, Susan Taki, and reluctantly, the vampire slayer, Jericho Caine.

Leechadon the Soul Eater, a powerful demon and the new leader of the underworld, uses the opportunity to attack the Earth by bringing together four allies of his own. They are the vampire lord Dracool, a witch named Alina, Deadric the zombie leader, and Gregor the demon lord. If they can work together, they represent the greatest threat to humanity that has ever been assembled.

Leechadon strikes a deal with Hangman to help him get his revenge, in exchange for the Hangman agreeing not to interfere with Leechadon’s plans for the Earth. The past, present, and future play relevant parts in this adventure. Allegiances are tested as both humans and supernatural forces clash in this epic finale to the Hangman series.

Séries: The Aphotic (3)

Losing blood doesn't always mean you're bleeding. You think you know what it means to lose blood?

Zero does. One of her members broke the rule: no werewolf shall harm or kill another. But the replacement is an overeager fool who refers to himself as the Fed. He’ll risk everything to prove his worth. And he’s out for revenge.

Rainer does. Her parents, her sister, her husband, her child…her blood. The werewolves took everyone she loved, and she’s vowed to never let it happen again. But when she finally opens herself up, she puts a whole new family in the werewolves’ path. She’ll risk everything to stop the wolves. Now, she’s out for revenge.

Sam does. With her mother gone, Sam is finally forging a relationship with her father. So she isn’t sure what to think when Rainer shows up, stinking of smoke and death, and tells Sam and her dad that they must come with her. For their safety.

But Sam is different from other kids her age. Precocious and foul-mouthed, she’s learning she’s strangely powerful. And that even the werewolves can sense it.

Yet another, darker power waits, biding its time. It just needs to find that perfect…someone.

Someone willing to spill blood.

There are so many paths toward realizing our dreams, toward untangling the web of sabotaging habits that keep us from being our best selves. However, very few approaches look at how you literally move through life. Every breath, gesture and facial expression are (usually unconscious) choices that influence how we navigate life’s challenges. While talk can often lead to paralysis by analysis, listening to the body is a direct line to the instant messages being sent every second by the brain and nervous system.

Drawing from Feldenkrais bodywork, powerful archetypes, contemplative spirituality, the Gurdjieff Work and more — and with QR codes linking directly to somatic lessons you can experience yourself — You’ve Got The Power! is a refreshing manual for change...from the inside-out.

The saying “we contain multitudes,” while true, can disempower us from the possibility of ever attaining satisfaction. You’ve Got The Power! offers readers four paths: the way of the warrior, teacher, healer and visionary. These four cornerstone archetypes live in mythology, history and in our own stories. Using her lifetime of research in movement, Lavinia Plonka offers a revolutionary approach to getting out of your way by utilizing humanity’s forgotten sixth sense—the power of sensation and embodiment.

Using pleasurable movement explorations, self-inquiry and practical life exercises, You’ve Got the Power! introduces readers the the wisdom of the body. Each archetype has a physical “center of presence.” Readers will learn how to use these centers: The Warrior: pelvis, Teacher: chest, Healer: hands and Visionary: eyes to develop embodied presence and use it for personal mastery. Each archetype also has a “superpower” and a “kryptonite.” Learning to develop the superpower, while acknowledging the potential pitfalls are part of the journey towards realizing our dreams—whether it’s for healing, learning or achieving.

The four archetypes embody our potential to be the change we want to see in the world. By reconnecting with the intelligent nervous system and developing our kinesthetic sense, we become more aware of ourselves, how we impact others and how others influence our actions. The ability to stand our ground, connect with compassion, heal old wounds and envision our possibilities will be the takeaway from this ground breaking look at body/mind connections.

To forever cherish the memories of those special times with her dad, Kerice Robinson wrote Dad Is My Best Friend based loosely on her own childhood experiences.

"To laugh is proper for man." —Rabelais

Today, all humans who work for a living are in business in one way or another. They are the participants, cheerleaders, anti-heroes, first responders, or economically injured people in a national and global game.

The media tend to divide the public into consumers and investors. This is no longer clever or useful.. Humans are far more than that. Most of them do the essential work that keep things going during turbulent times. They show up despite extreme weather events and deal with dysfunctional incidents, daily challenges, and multiplying uncertainties.

Yet once in a while it is necessary — even for the most enduring creatures —to stand back and take a deep breath. That’s where the Business Fables come in. They tell little stories that can make one’s day. They are satirical, sarcastic, wise and funny.

Séries: The Aphotic (2)

Everyone has their demons. But Stinky Pete released his into the school, and now it's out for blood.

It's 1981, and in the town they call No Hope, Theo knows Pete is going through a tough time. God knows Theo's been there himself. He offers a hand in friendship, an offer to get a few guys together for some poker, but something holds Pete back. He's just acquired a Book, and this is the day Pete's gonna make his father pay for all the shit Stinky Pete's had to deal with...

With the help of the Book, Pete unleashes an monstrous, vile demon within the halls of Clarington High. In a matter of minutes, most of the students are dead or dying, the school has been moved to a sickening elsewhere, and Theo and his friends are thrown into the fight of—and for—their lives.

They have one chance to defeat the demon. One chance to get back home. One chance to save themselves. And it's the biggest gamble of Theo's life, but the deck is stacked against them.

The demon they call Swlabr is trying to find and break them for its own needs...

Their inner demons are fighting against them...

And the Book? Yeah, that damned Book has plans of Its own.

"I know bad things are supposed to happen, and we've got a ways to go, but f*ck! I've never hated a book so! This. Is. Terrifying."– Jennifer Dinsmore, editor of The Aphotic series

In Love We Speak. Angels communicate and our loved ones, who have passed to the greater life, for there is no death. Through thoughts and memories our loved ones connect to us, they are closer now than ever before. Love is our connection far greater than you could ever imagine.

I had reached a low point in my life, I needed to get my thoughts down on paper. In doing so I found inspirational messages coming out. Angels spoke of love that energy that connects us all, that there is no death only the physical. You spirit is connected to the divine, there is no separation.

Some twenty five years ago my first encounter with angels, at the Mind body festival at Alexander palace. That festival was the start of my spiritual journey with angels, reaching further than words can say. Love the power of angels we all can connect.

Ever felt like chucking it all and moving to an island paradise? Award-winning journalist David Haldane and his Filipino wife, Ivy, met on an international dating site. Ten years later, with David laid off from his dream job at the LA Times and frustrated by mounting costs in America, they made the bold decision to move to the Philippine island of Mindanao, where Ivy grew up.

This is the story of that adventure including its tragedies, triumphs, and travails as they slowly build their dream house overlooking the sea, try to bridge the huge cultural gaps, navigate the advent of COVID in a foreign land, and give birth to a child during one of the world's longest and strictest lockdowns.

Originally published as a weekly column in one of Mindanao's leading newspapers, these short essays recount the surprising, spiritual, sometimes frightening, often hilarious, and always entertaining experience of adapting to life in a strange new place.

Required reading for anyone contemplating such a move, or Filipinos wondering what would inspire a foreigner's abiding devotion to their homeland.

"A passionate love story told with elegance straight from the heart." -- Fernando Almeda, author of Surigao Across the Years; The History of a Province

Séries: Out of the Darkness (1)

Zak Tifour loathes violence, and who could blame him? Two years ago, it destroyed him. It’s one thing to witness death, yet another to be responsible for the carnage. To survive, he hides in a small town, but when an attractive doctor veers off the road, his self-imposed exile is threatened. Though drawn to the woman’s generous heart, Zak is terrified his darkness will engulf her light.

Lexie Draden knows sacrifice. She has dedicated her life to medicine. But no matter how skillful she is, it’s impossible to save everyone. As a surgeon, she accepts this brutal truth—until it becomes personal. Relocating is tough, but when she stumbles into the arms of a handsome stranger who doesn’t pry into her history, life takes a turn for the better. The only downside, the man’s past may be worse than hers.

Will their secrets and broken promises destroy their budding romance, or will love heal their damaged souls?

This book is meant to help ANYONE desiring to UPDATE the Operating System of their own MIND. I will show you how you can rewire your brain as proven by science. In the book, I show public domain scientific studies display how techniques like my program connect your brain to itself in UNFATHOMABLE WAYS.

Science studies have found this interconnection of the brain leads to a significant reduction in stress, controls anxiety, promotes emotional health, enhances self-awareness, lengthens attention span, reduces age-related memory loss, generates kindness, help fight addictions, improves sleep, helps control pain, decrease blood pressure, and its accessible anywhere and its always FREE!

The science journals provided conclusively prove when there's a decrease in the function of the Default Mode Network, the brain rewires, and makes new connections and associations. I believe it's what the mystics were referring to as GOD. The Default Mode Network is the function of the brain that's responsible for the self-conversation / self-monologue that happens inside everyone's mind.

There have been 3 proven ways to decrease the Default Mode function: Psilocybin, LSD, and meditation. All of them are temporary. Except meditation. BUT ONLY IF practiced throughout the entire day, like my program shown in the book.

I recently saw a documentary on Thich Nhat Han. He explained how Buddhism prevailed in society for some time and there was peace. It was his life's work to bring the ideology back to awareness and practice. But our society is now being governed entirely by the Egoic self and with very little restraint. And there are no new plans for how to curb the suffering imposed by the self on almost the entire population (except for medications).

Unfortunately, Buddhism is an ideology in itself. And even though it's also a way to connectedness, most Buddhist believe Enlightenment is only for the Buddha.

Not good! Everyone is most welcomed. Please!

Get your brain connected and see there are no such ideals within.

My program does NOT discriminate.

Any race, color, beliefs, religion, addictions, political affiliations, disabilities, LGBTQ, etc.

I now believe it is possible for mental disease to be a thing of the troubled past!

Follow my crystal clear, extra easy instructions and find out for yourself.

Séries: Aquarius Rising (1-3)

On an Earth ravaged by global warming — and a disastrous attempt to reverse it — Aquarians have built a peaceful society of reef-cities beneath the waves. These human-dolphin hybrids resurrect the drowned coastal ruins of ancient Human towns, turning them into undersea gardens... until an unknown enemy unleashes an invisible weapon that leaves no survivors.

Ocypode is an Atavism: marooned in the genetic limbo between Human and Aquarian, accepted by neither race. As the war between the ocean-dwellers and the "dirt-swimmers" escalates, drawing in other hybrid species, he and his comrades must find a way to bridge the chasm between land and sea before both worlds are destroyed.

This consolidated volume of the award-winning trilogy (EPIC's eBook Award for Science Fiction, Readers' Favorite Gold Medal for Science Fiction) contains new, previously unpublished content.

Souvenirs of summer fun presented via multiple-choice baseball trivia questions: this well-thought-out compendium of Q&A challenges includes everything from easy-as-apple-pie soft tosses to 98-mph two seamers. Included are the most essential records and record-holding players of the U.S. national pastime, and surprising revelations about the history of the sport.

Did you know that the two most successful franchises in both leagues of MLB started out in the role of extreme but loveble losers, both having never won a championship for about 50 years? (One never won a pennant in 50 years.) Did you know that eyewitnesses have testified with directly conflicting stories about whether Babe Ruth's "called shot" in the 1932 World Series actually happened? Do you know who won the World Series the year before last, or who broke a huge and venerable home run record in 2022? Were you there for either of those historic landmarks? Just how well do you know the names of the men who set and then broke perhaps the biggest of all baseball records: namely the career home-run record?

It's all here, including a good dose of truly trivial matters — at least as viewed by the non-fanatics (fans) among us regarding the nation's best sport? The multiple-choice format allows for plenty of ringers to be thrown in along the way just to confuse things, which we think can make for some laughs, but also can make those bar bets and cocktail party disagreements easier to resolve. (We can safely eliminate Ty Cobb from consideration in questions about any record set after 1928, for example.)

Reasons to get this great collection of Baseball Trivia:

* Strike up a conversation with your baseball-fan boss

* Embarrass your uninformed friends

* Humble the blowhard who runs your office pool at World Series time

* Introduce yourself to the man or woman of your dreams who loves the sport

* Hold up your end of conversations at the next cocktail party

* Practice memorization skills on something truly worth remembering

* Win a game of Trivial Pursuits, baseball edition

* Punch up your next speech with an anecdote people really care about

* Prove you are still "with it" despite being called "past it" by all the hip kids

* Settle arguments over wagers without resorting to nunchuks!

Yes, the history and central importance of the game throughout the known universe is well reflected in this one little tome, and all without the scent of stale beer, peanuts, and Cracker Jacks that mar so many other baseball books. Play ball!

Séries: Kit and Tully (2)

Love or Music… Which should they choose and what price do they have to pay?

Tully has no memory of what happened at the ancient passage grave on the night of the full moon, but Kit was there too. She finally figures out what he chose.

And decides he got it wrong.

The Celtic god of love and music might have made their wishes come true, but the price is too high –– a hopeless future trapped in their deadbeat home town, unless Kit can find a way to change it.

Unfortunately, there’s only one way to do that. Kit needs to seek out Aonghus again.

But now she knows the risks involved, is she desperate enough to go through with it, especially when Tully doesn’t agree?

FIRST VALENTINE is the second book in the Kit & Tully Series and continues the story from Kit’s point of view.

What Early Readers Say...

pomalo

I just love any scene that has Tully on it. His positivity and enthusiasm is much needed during bad moods. I also love the way Kit and Tully's relationship is progressing! They are so cute together.

sandydragon1

The rush of 90s nostalgia was a nice bonus too. There's something satisfying about seeing bits and pieces of my childhood being included in stories as if they're time capsules.

Voyageavecmoi

The story has great momentum and definitely has an addictive quality where I really want to read on

diamond--ice

Okay is at this point it's a given these two are the absolute cutest couple omg if they were to ever break up I don't know what I would do with myself

Séries: The Tokyo Trilogy (3)

In Serenade of Souls, the final installment of The Tokyo Trilogy, most of the love stories started in the previous volumes reach their suspenseful conclusions. Another five years have gone by, and Shoko is now the oyabun, or clan head, of the Hashimoto family. Her attempts to revamp and rebrand the crime syndicate as a slick and modern corporation meet with resistance, and unrest is brewing within her organization as a conspiracy to topple her is unfolding.

Linda for her part is back in Tokyo, but she now faces competition in her attempts to win back Tanaka’s heart. She confides in Ai, her old colleague from The Library, who in turn gets back in touch with her ex-boyfriend, Ryo, whom she broke up with in volume one. Finally, Shoko is not only faced with an insurrection, she also has to make a choice between her two former roommates, Kenji and Masayoshi, who are both vying for her romantic attention.

Flid is a book about a character. A character with a disability. But forget everything you think you know about disability and meet Kevin.

What follows is a moving – and sometimes comic – account of a life lived to the max. No arms, no legs – no problem! Watch as Kevin navigates his way through school, the workplace and university, breaking barriers at every step. An optimistic and ebullient force, it is only when Kevin unexpectedly finds love again, in later years, that he is called upon to reassess a condition he has long come to accept.
