The second in the series revisiting the Royal Family of Adriel, The Princess of the Wild takes place 25 years later, the adventures of alias Skye Williams, a mysterious beauty caught up in a tempestuous romance with Prince Nicholas, Sarra and Raine's firstborn son.
From their illustrious beginning in a Kalcoonian brothel—Nicholas, a wayward rogue incognito to protect his stellar name, and Skye, the innocent prey of an alien slave trade—are drawn into their undeniable passion, she a natural vagabond of the wilds and he a jaded master of the world. Their reluctant attraction locks them in a fierce battle of wits, both headstrong and free spirited—and fearing the ravages of true love.
Swept off into the lush utopia where they explore their fiery sensuality...into the crusade exposing the slave trade...to the perilous intrigue of her late father's name, their affection deepens...but their unique bond breaks asunder as she uncovers his shocking identity, commoner Skye the fool in his deception. Nicholas' heart is true...and within the splendor of Queen's Palace, it's her exquisite journey to discover that he really is her noble prince charming—is she destined to become his princess?
I have always loved the written word, from when I was a young lad reading "Mr. Popper's Penguins" to a slightly older lad who read Raymond Chandler and John Cheever to the middle-aged dude I am now, reading history by the likes of Doris Kearns Goodwin. Christmas has also always been a big deal. For as long as I can remember, back in time to my youth in Chicago, this was always a special time of the year for my family and me. Another things is, everyone in my family, including and especially, my wife, has, to one degree or another, a slightly off way of looking at the world. Therefore, writing humorous stories about Santa seemed like a natural thing to do.
"Twisted Tinsel" is a collection of four short stories, all about the goings on of Santa Claus, his reindeer, and the elves who work at the North Pole. It shows all of these things in a light different from what you may be used to. This Santa enjoys adult beverages, as do some of his reindeer, and don't get me started on the elves. They work hard so they're entitled to the occasional tipple as well. Santa gets into all sorts of adventures: He travels through time with Blitzen and meets Abraham Lincoln; he tries to get out of the business but just gets sucked back in, just in time to defeat an evil efficiency expert and deliver the toys on Christmas Eve; he solves the "mystery" of a "missing" reindeer; he gets stressed but finds peace through meditation and the wisdom of a ghost-like reindeer. You may not be able to read these tales to your young children, but there's nothing here that would embarrass your grandma to read. They are simply Christmas stories told from a slightly skewed perspective.
Born in NYC and having travelled and lived around the world I have been influenced by the works of James Redfields' Insights about syncronies and how the people we meet and the events in our lives can show us a new way of living. I like others of our time realize that our thoughts are very powerful and fear dominates our reactions in most things on earth. By changing from Fear to Love we can achieve anything. I tried to use local events from newspapers and historical events to illustrate these ideas. The writings of Pople John Paul 11 have not only inspired me but give us great hope in the future of mankind and for me confirm the belief that we are on the brink of a universal spiritual revival.
What are your intentions? Are your thoughts based on Fear and leading you to a destructive life or a life of love and purpose? Take a journey through different ages from the Russian revolution to life with the Carthars,to present day life in the UK. While Marchell and Johnny search for "Their Place" they encounter and try to influence the lives of those on earth and help them to understand our destiny -is to create heaven on earth. Along the way throughout all time they show us where there is love there is always hope and that Fear which destroys lives can be overcome .Or thoughts are very powerful, change is just a thought away.
Retired as an Assistant Director of Financial Aid at a Florida community college, I have become a self-published author (what fun!). Growing herbs and experimenting by concocting healing salves and infusions is part of my spiritual life. As a 75% Romani, I learned to create my path, The Drom Ek Romani, from my grandmother, a drabarni, or herbalist, while growing up in Philadelphia. The Way Of One Gypsy, a barely fictionalized memoir, contains the entire Drom Ek Romani, my personal path, and other information about O Jakhalo, the evil eye (CURSES RETURN! NEVER CURSE ANYONE!), and the importance of good nutrition in helping us to fight the sometimes difficult hike on our path. The Gypsy's Book is mainly for Young Adults—or maybe Aging Hippies--and I hope that anyone reading it will come away with a bit of knowledge about the modern Gypsy and the importance of tolerance and love. Drab Lil, A Gypsy's Medicine Book, is a treatise on my philosophy of life: help others when possible. It is a non-fiction account of what commonly is known as a book of shadows. I'm married and live in Florida. My two sons and granddaughter live in Pennsylvania.
In a small row home, in 1956 South Philly, down in a dirt floor cellar, a drabarni grandmother picks up pieces of wood chips discarded on her husband's worktable. Using a carpenter's pencil she sketches a circle with spokes and hands it to her eight-year-old granddaughter. “Ashok Chakra, Wheel of Origin,” she says. “This is the first step on your path. One day there will be twenty-two of them...”
This book is one Romani's (Gypsy) grimoire, a family compendium about moving along our path in life with a minimum amount of stress. It is not meant to be a guide but it is a slice of life that I hope you will learn from and enjoy.
Drab, in Romanes, means herb and fortune telling. A drabarni is one who can heal with herbs and advise by using cards, tea leaves, dreams and the lines on the palm of the hand. Let's change the word fortune telling because no future is engraved into gold and our past will determine our actions for the future. It is more a holistic way of looking at another's life and prescribing—through the use of herbs and advice—how to cope.
When I was about eight, my grandmother drew symbols on small pieces of wood that I have reproduced. She gave me the first five and instructed me to observe life as I grew older and add my own. They could be altered but she hoped I would not commit them to paper (or wood) until I was sure. Although I've been enamored of the tarot most of my life, I discovered that in my mid fifties, the markers and pens found their way to the blank cards I bought and my Drom Ek Romani (the way or path of one Gypsy) was completed, all 22 of them.
The main philosophy of my medicine book is written in 22 chapters, each one with the title of the 22 cards, or disks of the Drom Ek Romani. I have tried to show how life often follows each little path as we spiral through it.
Also included is information about o jakhalo (the evil eye) and some basic curatives made mainly from kitchen herbs. However, this is not a “how-to” book. We Gypsies traveled, did not have a homeland, and were unable or unwilling to put down roots. So everything was kept simple. I still make dinners where I put the pot of goulash or soup on the table with bowls and spoons and tell all to help themselves, including going into my refrigerator for anything needed. This is my metaphor for not spoon-feeding you. With internet sources and overloads of information, it is almost like I am saying, “Help yourself. Here's the pot of soup, you do the rest. My sustenance is your sustenance and I'm here to start you on your own personal path...”

Special Forces sniper, Tom Friddle, returns home to western New York after two years deployed in a combat zone fighting the war on terror. Upon returning home, Tom heals from the horror of war through his family, his farm, and being a role-model. Tom explores the destructive qualities of war which is countered by the healing and regenerative powers of love. David Joseph employs the iceberg theory when writing about 9/11, amputations, death, and the war on terror. The hard facts float above water while the supporting structure, including the symbolism, operates out of sight. “Fathers and Sons” is a definitive piece of literature on “Healing” from catastrophic war.

I have been a zompoc fan since my mom first allowed me to watch Romero's Dawn of the Dead when I was twelve. Thanks Mom! I am also enamored with the Walking Dead series on AMC. While I was writing the novel Trudge: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse I really felt as if I were a fly on the wall watching it all unfold. My first novel came to me easier than I imagined. Many places in the novel are real and I have been there. Please enjoy the first installment in the Trudge series.

"I have twenty short stories and three novels in my head!"
Korea x2 (Book One)
The Korean CIA Director is killed by a North Korean assassin. Counterfeiting, drugs, and weapons of terror finance the North Korean government. Three Air Force Pararescuemen and a CIA Officer join with the South Korean 707th Brigade, a team of female assassins, to form a team, known only by President Reagan and CIA Director Casey, as "the Silent Six." Their task: the destruction of the North Korean gangster regime. “The Silent Six” is the ultimate Special Operations Team.
Silent Six (Book Two)
Author David Joseph brings his most intriguing thriller yet—a terrifying story about terrorism and rescue—brilliantly paced with superb nonstop action. While tracking the 9/11 terrorist hijackers at the “Kuala Lumpur Summit,” the Silent Six team are redirected on a rescue mission of sheer audacity and nerve--rescue a group of children being transported from Camp 14 in North Korea. Here is David Joseph’s heart-stopping masterpiece, a riveting novel about the most diabolical government and criminal syndicate that ever existed—the Kim regime and Office 39.
Putin’s Gold (Book Three)
Putin and Kim Jong Un unleash a deadly reign of global terror by hijacking a Malaysian airliner, shooting down a Malaysian airliner, and circulating the “PBF,” the Perfect Ben Franklin. CIA Director Mike Perry followed the evil Office 39 Director for over thirty years and finally has a chance to eliminate him along with the Kim regime. As an added bonus, the Federal Reserve cripples the Putin government through manipulating the oil markets, applying economic sanctions, and acquiring huge gold reserves in North Korea. Putin’s Gold is a shocking novel paralleling real world events.
David Joseph's electrifying conclusion to the Korea Trilogy--now a media tie-in to two airliner incidents--will have you glued to the page right down to the last word.
Citizens of the People's Republic of China, all 1.4 billion of them, represent 20% of all the people in the world. That is, one in five humans is Chinese. Voices of New China is unique. This the first time average, ordinary Chinese people have been given a chance to talk about their lives in a relaxed, open manner. This book is a great opportunity to learn about the lives of Chinese people.
Author C.J. Shane has traveled in China extensively and has lived there for short periods to teach English as a second language. Voices of New China includes cultural information from the author that will make the interviews even more meaningful.
In a series of interviews, Chinese young adults tell us in their own words about their lives, their values, their goals for the future, their daily joys and persistent challenges. They also tell us what they think of westerners and what they believe we need to know about China. Chapters by the author on Confucian values, recent Chinese history, and the typical life stages of the Chinese give meaningful context to their commentary. Chinese blue-collar workers, educated professionals, and university students are represented in these interviews which were conducted with adults between the ages of 18 and 35. Learn what life is like in China from the Chinese perspective.
The author was born a “middle class,” over-privileged WASP in 1943. and “came out” into gay life in 1965. After an internship at a major hospital in Cleveland, she graduated from Kent State University in May of 1970 with a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, and also a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a general minor. She became a Jew-by-Choice in 1973. She is a proud retired member of 1199SEIU, the National Healthcare Workers Union, and participated in the great 1984 Hospital Strike in NYC. She is also a Wobblie.
Barbara G Louise is an Empath, her own feelings always strongly affected by the presence of other beings (usually human, although she can feel other mammals too, like horses, cats dogs, and dolphins). While writing The Rabble and the Rich, she finally had to realize she had to do the creative part physically alone, in order to discover, without the emotional input of anyone else’s worldview, exactly what she personally had to say about capitalism, the necessity for revolution, Marxism, government, and anarkhism. She knows her communist friends will disagree with her, and most other anarkhists also. Which is why she had to find her own ideas and opinions.
Barbara conceives of her potential audience as “middle class” or formerly “middle class” mostly-white people who are disgusted by our current economic system and disenchanted with the failed idea of the “American dream,” whereby we were all supposed to work hard and grow into a comfortable life free of hunger, economic worry, and random violence (regardless of skin colour), where we could raise our children in safety. She cannot pretend to be anything other than what she is: a white, anti-Racist, formerly “middle class” person who can speak most genuinely to other “middle Class” people.
Since she was born in 1943, she is not young. For most of her life, the twenty-first century was the far future. ((She can even remember when 1976 was the ‘far’ future.)) She did not grow up with the InterNet.
So she was at first reluctant to publish electronically. To her, and to most people her age, a book is bound hardcopy she can decoratively store on a bookshelf, hold in her hands, and manually turn the pages with more than a casual flick of her fingers.
But as a long time reader of science fiction, Barbara must admit, and rejoice, that the future is here now. To the people of the twenty-first century, the InterNet is Reality. She even has a connection in her house. Although she has plenty of hardcopies on her bookshelves, her most useful dictionary is online, so she can most quickly consult it while she is writing with her computer on her lap.
Having finished the Work which serves as the culmination of her lifetime of reading, thinking about politics and philosophy — and engaging in whatever progressive activism she was not too cowardly to commit — she began the soul-numbing process of trying to break into print without any interest in, or talent for, writing short stories to introduce herself to readers in her genre. Considering the difficulty an unknown new writer has in finding a publisher these days, especially for a book with a bluntly anti-capitalist theme, Barbara despaired of getting her novel published anytime before she died.
Then one night after Erev Rosh Hashannah services at her synagogue, someone suggested that the visiting Cantor — Bonnie J. Gordon, whose delightful retelling of the Exodus story — Escape from Goshen — for children, can be found on Amazon for Kindle (and in paperback) — could tell her how to publish online, so Barbara asked her how, and she did.
There is a song from the sixties or seventies, from the time when Barbara was “officially” involved with Gay Liberation:
It isn’t nice to block the doorway,
It isn’t nice to go to jail.
There are nicer ways to do it
But the nice ways always fail.
Of course, escape from the life-smothering excesses of capitalism is only necessary in the alternate universe of The Rabble and the Rich. In our universe, our relatively tiny corner of the Multiverse, capitalism is the greatest economic system the human species has ever produced. You better believe it. Anyone can get rich!
Only losers, like Barbara G Louise, who has no interest in, and no talent for, the thieving manipulations of high finance, cannot get rich and join the storied ‘1%’ who own our supposedly democratic government and manipulate it to further their own selfish financial interests, no matter how the losers suffer while their totally-unimportant qualities of life plummet as the rich get richer.
So, since Barbara is too old to survive arrest and torture by armed and armored agents of the federal or state governments, the reader will please remember that no revolution (especially by the Left) is necessary in our universe, absolutely none. Barbara is definitely not advocating a Leftist revolution.
Capitalism is the end of history. Revolution is unneeded, and impossible. You better believe it.

DOCUMENTS of the PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF NORTH AMERICA is a collection of non-narrative writing which supplements the three books of the controversial RABBLE AND THE RICH Trilogy, the tale of an alternative universe — a universe nothing like our own, of course — where the terrible division between the rich capitalists and the Working Class has reached its climax.
Truth in Advertising compels the author to reveal that each section of DOCUMRNTS has been published before, in the Xtra areas at the back of the books of the Trilogy, THE RABBLE AND THE RICH, although there have been extensive additions to A COLLECTION OF REBELS since the Trilogy was first published.
The DOCUMENTS excerpted from the controversial speculative-fiction trilogy-novel, The RABBLE AND THE RICH, are, first of all, THE CONSTITUTION OF THE PEOPLE’S SOLIDARITY OF NORTH AMERICA, wherein the customs and ideology of a future free, anarkhist society are enumerated and established.
Also included is an extensive BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SPECULATIVE FICTION AND LEFT-LEANING BOOKS which inspired and educated the author of The RABBLE AND THE RICH, as well as A COLLECTION OF REBELS, including Val Plumwood, Emma Goldman, Assata Shakur, Frederick Douglass, Big Bill Haywood, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Angela Davis, James Tiptree Jr, Ursula K. LeGuin, Urvashi Vaid, Emiliano Zapata, and Cindy Sheehan, as well as further activists, anarchists, socialists, communists, and others in our universe who have contributed to the evolutionary and cultural trend towards a civilization free from capitalism and its ills.

What This Book Is Not
This book is not a fully detailed Crete travel guide - this does not have detailed instructions “Turn left, turn right, take the second road after the goat shed”. This is a route suggestion for independent, curious travellers who know how to read a map. There are plenty of excellent travel guide books available. We wrote this book in response to our readers, who often asked; “How do I plan my trip for five days in Crete”? This suggested pathway, with different options, will help you travel Crete on the back roads.

Michael Segal è nato nel 1974 e fa l'attore. L'idea di questo libro nacque nel 1997 al manifestarsi della sua prima esperienza paranormale. Seguirono altri episodi che fecero nascere l'idea di questo romanzo che, per maturità artistica, ha visto la luce solo di recente.
Un thriller paranormale con un ritmo serratissimo. Dante, un poliziotto devastato psicologicamente ma dotato di inquietanti poteri, è chiamato ad affrontare uno spietato assassino che rivela ben presto la sua vera natura.
Insieme al suo fidato compagno Virgil e l'utilizzo di una particolare droga chiamata "Divina Commedia" che gli permette di amplificare le sue capacità soprannaturali, i due si scontreranno con una realtà inaspettata e pericolosamente mortale.

Muriel Marks is currently preparing her next book, while making chutneys, jams and continuing to enjoy her passions of animals, antiques and books. My Double Life is her first book.
In 1987, in her late forties and with two marriages behind her, Muriel Marks decides to take control of her destiny, putting herself through night school to qualify as a chef. Destiny takes the upper hand however when, on a weekend break in the West Country she meets debonair English actor Leo Lewis, recently returned from the glittering world of Hollywood. Falling instantly in love, they decide to open their own restaurant together, fulfilling a long-cherished dream for Muriel. To attract visiting entertainers, they call their new venture ‘Backstage’, and Freddie Starr, Les Dawson and Johnny Cash all become appreciative patrons. Leo however prefers centre stage, especially when the alcohol is flowing. Toss a few pretty waitresses into the mix and the recipe soon becomes explosive. The little town of Paignton doesn’t know what’s hit it and neither does Muriel. As Leo’s wildly drunken behaviour escalates into violence, the restaurant degenerates into a nightly farce for the customers and a living nightmare for Muriel. After much angst she is forced to sell the business, and Leo departs back to the States and his Hollywood career. Absence soon makes the heart grow fonder however. Realising she is still in love, Muriel flies out to America to be with Leo. She finds him not in Hollywood but New Jersey, and living a far from glamorous life. The pair survive for a while on poorly paid menial work, buy a second-hand car and head west, bound for the sunshine coast of California and the movie capital of the world, where Leo has ‘contacts’. But as they pass deeper into the heart of America, with Leo increasingly drunk and Muriel in constant fear of arrest as an “illegal”, she realises she has absolutely no idea what lies ahead of her. “My Double Life” is a unique true story of cookery and crookery, showbiz and booze, of love, enduring friendship, aspiration, despair, and starting all over again. Its cast of characters is vivid and varied, from movie stars to tragic has-beens, villains and freaks to the merely eccentric, along with kindly, lost souls, everyday heroes and heroines, all set against the deceptively sleepy backdrop of the British seaside and the vast, alien landscape that is America. It is also about a woman who followed her heart and survived to tell the extraordinary tale.

Skin isn’t the only game in town, but for plastic surgeon Marcus Armstrong, it’s his passion and his profit.
Sterling Falls’ grand opening isn’t going as planned. Instead she sees a gun-yielding man shot dead on her new jewelry showroom floor, and the woman that mortally wounded him? A bag lady.

Like most people, I wanted to document my childhood memories for my kids. Why? When I was a teacher, before I had kids, I used to tell the kids stories from my youth. They loved them and begged for more. Same thing when I had my own kids. I wanted to document these tales, but the problem always came in finding the time and the motivation to actually get around to writing them down.
Since many of my most vivid memories revolved around church, I decided that that was the perfect theme. And I Love to Tell the Story was born. Each chapter is titled with a hymn that reflects its theme. As I delved into the writing, I had a lot of fun reliving the decidedly memorable life I had led as a youth . I realized, too, that many aspects of my conservative midwestern upbringing don’t exist anymore in the 21st century. I became nostalgic thinking about the many cultural markers of the 1970s — Lawrence Welk, the Flintstones, heck — even macrame and latch-hook!
Another incentive I had in writing this book was to put out a positive Christian memoir. So many that I read started out fine, but then dissolved into abuse, disillusionment, or even worse. I began to wonder if anyone had grown up in the church and actually enjoyed the experience … surely I wasn’t alone, was I?
Is it possible to emerge unscathed from an evangelical upbringing? Yes, as surely as David slew Goliath!
I Love to Tell the Story is Susan Barnett Braun’s account of growing up Baptist in a small midwestern town, touching on many cultural icons common to those who came of age in the 1970s. Braun recounts childhood obstacles, which loom as large as the walls of Jericho in her eyes. She encounters a trio of Sunday school mean girls who make King Herod look tame. She worries about being “ugly as sin” due to her chubbiness, glasses, and braces. She’s so consumed with the idea of Jesus’ imminent return that she wonders whether it’s even worthwhile to brush her teeth at night.
Humorous, poignant, and ultimately triumphant, I Love to Tell the Story will stay with readers long after the last Vacation Bible School craft stick cross has fallen apart.
