About the Author:

Travel for me was a passion from the day I discovered there was more world to see. I was never content to merely daydream. Nor would I be satisfied with the vicarious travel offered by movies and books. So I set about making travel feasible before I could afford it. Taking to heart an old saw my mother was found of reciting, I made "where there's a will there's a way" my personal mantra. 

Through reading and conversations with travelers, especially budget travelers, much was learned. And every trip I took expanded my knowledge base. Then I discovered the home-based travel agent opportunity. Being on the business side of travel opened the door to some spectacular discounts, including the occasional free flight or free hotel stay.

But stellar discounts were not always available. Sometimes the travel agent discount was no better than discounts available to anyone. So my quest continued. Gems were unearthed and, in time, I decided to share my knowledge in a seminar/class I created and named The Art of Discount Travel, a class that has been taught in Community and Continuing Education departments of dozens of colleges across the USA.

Description:

No matter your travel style, the purpose of this book is to help you substantially lower the cost of flights and lodging. The Art of Discount Travel: Your Guide to Cheaper Flights & Cheaper Nights provides a wealth of cost-cutting strategies and resources. Personal in style, the book is sprinkled with the author's instructive travel anecdotes and sense of humor. In addition to the many discounting strategies, a handful of workable strategies for securing the ultimate discount: free flights and free lodging is included.

About the Author:
Description:

Castel is an elf stranded in human lands, slowly dying from lack of magical energy. Mendry is a human assassin descended from a line of vampire 'Dragon Knights' who seek to bring an evil dragon back to life.

When Mendry's father steals a child he believes to be his grand-daughter, the seventh generation needed to carry out the resurrection ritual, Mendry and Castel come together to save an innocent life, facing evil mages and more. Together with the child's uncle and mother, they make an unlikely band of heroes, and find a whole new meaning to the word family.

Reviews:

"Castel’s and Mendry’s relationship is as intriguing as the journeys they must take to protect the innocent. Emily Veinglory pens a fascinating fantasy tale which spins its web as tightly as if it were a realistic contemporary piece. Once again, her gift for characterization is apparent, with deeply-realised characters to whom the reader is immediately drawn." [TwoLips Reviews]

Rita Ciresi
About the Author:

 

Rita Ciresi is the author of two award-winning short-story collections and three novels.   Mother Rocket was winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction and finalist for the Los Angeles Times' Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction.   Sometimes I Dream in Italian, a Book Sense 76 Pick and finalist for the Paterson Fiction Prize, garnered praise from the New York Times:  “Ciresi has a lovely ear for dialogue and the ability to nail the details in descriptions that are both funny and painfully accurate.” Blue Italian was included in the Barnes and Noble Discover New Writers Series and received the following praise from Elle:  "Rita Ciresi's beautifully written, bittersweet first novel examines love and marriage with unflinching honesty. The ending, with its moving, explicit sense of loss, resonates long after the book is closed."  Pink Slip--winner of the Pirate's Alley Faulkner Prize for the Novel—was described as a “lively novel” by Mademoiselle and “a moving love story” by Redbook.  Its sequel, Remind Me Again Why I Married You, was called “a cutting commentary on the lasting implications of 'til death do us part” (The Hartford Courant) and Entertainment Weekly said, "Ciresi's depiction of post-singleton life is clever and surprisingly honest.”  Visit the author’s website at www.ritaciresi.com.

Description:

 

Getting cancer in your twenties is hardly a picnic. But in this sparkling romantic comedy by Rita Ciresi, two young cancer survivors manage to meet, fall in love, and live to laugh about it.

Twenty-seven-year-old Francie Malarkey has one remaining relative left on earth: her Great-Uncle Sol, a concentration camp survivor whose last grand mission is to see Francie happily married (preferably to a cardiac surgeon). Francie, however, has zero interest in getting hitched to some guy who actually knows the Latin names for her more intimate body parts. Although she would love to claim that she met Mr. Right at a noisy New Year’s Eve party, her initial encounter with her husband-to-be comes to pass in a hushed hospital waiting room marked with fallout shelter symbols. Joel Goldman--like Francie--is a young cancer survivor who happens to be sitting underneath a warning sign--DANGER! RADIATION IN USE!--that seems to imply that love is a risky business best undertaken by AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY.

Francie and Joel's courtship would be a dream come true. . . if only Great-Uncle Sol would stop insisting that Francie needs to marry a doctor instead of a guy who already has one foot in the grave. . . if only Joel's doctor-father would stop trying to micromanage his son's medical care. . . and if only Francie and Joel learn to accept the fact that any person on earth can pass through death's door without a moment's notice.

Bring Back My Body to Me--quarterfinalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and runner-up for the Faulkner/Wisdom Novella Award—illustrates that sometimes the deepest and most abiding relationships result from our most trying experiences.

Sudden cardiac death has become the #1 killer of young athletes. Parents should know that are kids need to be heart-healthy to play sports and they need to be more aware of the possible hidden heart defects that can only be shown through a simple heart screening.

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. 

Description:

 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.

Robert Deason
About the Author:

When the author, Robert Deason was a young child, two older boys tied him up by his feet and left him hanging alone, hidden inside a building. That memorable incident makes its way in an altered form into Super Shy. The author's situation isn't unique. Most kids experience either teasing, bullying, or being left out, especially during the junior high years. The author made it through junior high a long time ago, but watching his own children's struggles as pre-teens/young teenagers, it seems not much has changed.  It's a time of great turmoil. Imagine going through it while carrying the secret of a super power, a power that could be your salvation or your downfall.

You won't feel sorry for Edelweiss and her friends. You'll be rooting for them to find their way, because you'll see yourself and those you love in their struggles. Super Shy is an adventure, it's a coming-of-age story, and a fantasy grounded in the hard realities of being a kid.

Description:

Edelweiss Featherwhite lhides behind her shyness to cope with the bullies who tease and hurt her in junior high school. During Science Club, an accident changes Edelweiss from a wallflower into a girl who can walk through walls What do you do with a weird power like that? Well, when two other eighth grade outsiders get secret super powers, too, Edelweiss teams up with them to get back at the kids making them miserable.

Revenge doesn't taste so sweet, though, once Edelweiss falls for the most popular boy in school, nor when she and her classmates are forced into an unexpected fight for their lives. Unless Edelweiss and her partners overcome their own weaknesses and embrace what truly makes a hero, no kids will survive to see graduation day.

Anyone who has attended school, been bullied, or possesses a secret power will relate to this fanciful tale of overcoming jealousy, betrayal, doubt and the desperate need to fit in.

Jon Petruschke
About the Author:

Jon Petruschke was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He holds a BA in psychology from the Pennsylvania State University and an MSS from Bryn Mawr College's Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. Upon the completion of his graduate studies, Petruschke relocated to Portland, Maine, with his wife and two cats. Since 2002, the four of them have lived happily in the cozy, vibrant neighborhood of Munjoy Hill. Shortly after the move, Petruschke founded a Portland-based writing group that is now in its twelfth year.

His short fiction has been published in the anthologies Philly Fiction and Philly Fiction 2. In her Philadelphia Inquirer review, Susan Balee called Petruschke's story "Bragging About Annie," which appeared in Philly Fiction, a "sweet and funny tale...a wonderful story--my favorite of the lot." Petruschke's poetry has been published in such journals as Poetic Hours; Paper Wasp; Children, Churches and Daddies; 3 Cup Morning; Open Minds Quarterly; Waterways: Poetry in the Mainstream; and the anthology In Our Own Words: Generation X Poetry.

While at work on his first novel, Petruschke began a blog, Basho and Jung. The blog's subject is dream haiku: short poetry inspired by and based on the content of his nightly dreams. Initially, it was a practice to cleanse his writing mind of the long stretches of prose in his novel; however, playing with his dreams inside of a tiny poetic form lead to the development of Petruschke's first book: a collection of poetry entitled Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps. Dream Haiku was recently self-published and is available on Amazon.

When not writing, Petruschke is a clinical social worker who supervises a team that assists and supports adults with severe mental illness in the Portland community.

Description:

Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps is a selection of the author’s honest, odd, and irreverent verse. Culled from the journeys that sleep gifts us, these poems are a range of otherworldly moments. Some impossibly surreal. Others comfortingly familiar. And many of them somewhere, somehow, true -- in our whimsies, our ideals, our desires. The haiku form, and its moments of contemplation and surprise, are a perfect fit for the dream world’s startling images, pieces of conversation, and emotional residues. These are the experiences we so often forget and dismiss. Yet every night, we return to them.

Description:

If you've ever imagined it might take an unusual form. If you're a single adult who's asking "what next?" -- Lost and Found is for you.

Janae B. Weinhold, Ph.D.
About the Author:

 

Janae Weinhold grew up on a farm in the Midwest, surrounded by her father's predatory friends. She learned early on about con artists and sociopaths, as they were everywhere. Even her father. At the time, it all seemed "normal." Only later did she see recognize that they run the world.

It took her many years of being targeted by con artists before she recognized how they trapped people into doing things. Not only were these predators able to persuade people to do things that were self-defeating, but also things they didn't believe in.

Rather than being a victim, Janae decided to "get smart." Her Con Job series of books are the outcome of her journey to break free of con artists, sociopaths and predators. She shares many of her experiences in this series of books.

Janae had a doctorate in Planetary Psychology, is a former university professor and a licensed professional counselor. She has also lived and worked out of the country for extended periods of time, and credits these “outside the box” experiences with helping her develop a global and systemic perspective in her professional work. 

She has co-authored four print books on relationships and conflict resolution with her husband, Barry, that  grew out their “relationship laboratory.” They live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.

Description:

 

Are you softhearted, caring and kind?

Do you love kids & animals?

Does violence turn you off?

Do you attract people who steal your heart or ideas and use you?

Have you tried to fix broken people by showering them with your love?

If any of these things describe you, then this book is for you.

It was written for nice people who get ripped off.

It shows you how to break free of con artists, sociopaths and other kinds of “life-takers” who see your “life-giving” as a weakness and you as an ideal “mark.”

In this mind-stretching book, Janae shares stories of her encounters with con artists, sociopaths and predators. She describes how to spot these people and then to break free from their influence.

This ruthless Warrior for Truth and Seeker of the Shadow talks about her journey to know what is real and what is illusion. Eventually she decided to “get smart” rather than be a victim. This helped free her from the tangled web of family secrets and lies that she grew up with.

About the Author:

"Faithful Journey" attempts to reflect the lives and times of Paul, Peter and other well-known apostles in the spread of the gospel. Researching and writing the novel was a personal journey of faith, in helping me better understand the early church and to draw nearer to God and his grace, mercy and love. My hope is that the book will encourage you to study the Bible and it will enrich your own faith in Christ.

Description:

"Faithful Journey" is a unique historical novel based on the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament of the Bible. The novel hews closely to Luke's account and adds touches of fiction to help you meet the flesh-and-blood people who carried the good news of Christ from Jerusalem to Rome in the first century.  "Faithful Journey" is a modern portrait of the lives and times of people who played roles in this remarkable New Testament odyssey.

Description:

This is the first comparative study on political parties in Southeast Asia covering eight out of the ten ASEAN countries. Feudal Brunei Darussalam has no parties and for Laos we could not find a scholar willing or allowed to join our group.
The book is dedicated to anyone interested or active in party politics in the region.

Southeast Asia is an economic power house of sorts with fledgling and often volatile political systems. Political parties and their leaders make decisions on behalf of more than 600 million people with a far reaching impact also on other parts of the world. This is why understanding the driving forces in and behind Southeast Asia’s political parties is important.

This book provides a fresh look into organization and internal mechanisms of the main political parties, how they function on the ground, how they hold together, and how their leadership systems work. Internal competition and candidate selection, campaign strategies and party finances, money politics and career opportunities are a special focus in the eight country chapters.

While showing the difference between classical party models and the reality on the ground in Southeast Asia, the book provides broad information on party politics in the region, adding a practical view to the vast and often rather theory-loaded scholarly literature. It intends to reach out to party members and activists, journalists and other political observers, and to anybody interested in Southeast Asian politics.
