Description:
A puzzling series of events. A strange scent. A unique gift. Dr Neroli Sonnclere knows when she smells a rat—and not just literally. Authorities are baffled when restaurants in Central London are suddenly plagued by rats. When it becomes clear that it’s more than a sanitary issue, Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Adam McClellan reluctantly calls on police consultant, Dr Neroli Sonnclere. Dr Sonnclere is an olfactory scientist born with an extra keen sense of smell. She has the unique ability to discern odours undetected by ordinary human beings. For her, smell tells a story. It holds valuable clues that enable her to understand people, situations and places. If there’s anyone who can figure out the strange phenomenon, she can. Together with DI McClellan, who is sceptical at best, Dr Sonnclere uses her scientific knowledge and expert nose to sniff out the source of the problem. The trail leads to a villain with skills to match hers and who is determined to cause havoc in London. Why? More importantly, can they stop him? In this mystery thriller full of twists and turns, the investigation takes them around the chaotic, not to mention smelly, streets of London. They are only able to catch their breath before they are lured down into the bowels of the city’s underground system. For more information, visit: www.IveeOlivares.com

Ratan Kaul
About the Author:

 

The author  been a long-time resident of Delhi, which as the capital of India was witness to the tumultuous action after the transfer of capital from Calcutta during the British colonial  rule. His  visits to the Coronation Park in Delhi that commemorates the coronation celebrations of Kind George V in 1911, and is now a heritage site, inspired him to write this story. See   http://www.ratankaul.in

Description:

 UNIQUENESS OF THE NOVEL           

There have been several novels by western authors on British Raj, all of which  received international acclaim with a large readership. The Far Pavilions, which is a comparatively recent one in the series of these novels having been published in 1978, sold millions of copies and inspired a popular television adaptation as well as a musical play.

 However, my novel, Wings of Freedom, has a vital distinction  as it’s written from an Indian’s point  of view, and reflects the aspirations of the Indian masses during the turbulent colonial period. Moreover, with the Indian authorship, it depicts appropriately the locales, language, dresses, social customs and flavor of the Indian society as it existed a hundred years ago,

PREMISE

It’s the year 1911. Raju, a college student, struggles to establish his identity in the charged atmosphere of India’s freedom struggle. King George the Fifth is due in Delhi for his coronation celebration. A devastating fire in the royal camp gives rise to speculations of sabotage and an assassination attempt by the revolutionaries. Raju is caught up in the vortex of violent passions as two of his innocent friends are made scapegoats for the blaze by the British police and murdered. Thus begins Raju’s relentless journey against colonial rule and the economic exploitation of India.

A passionate romance with Eileen, the daughter of a British officer, keeps Raju inspired in their roller-coaster ride against the backdrop of British imperialism, turbulent political conflicts, the fury of the freedom revolution, the catastrophic first World War and the racial, cultural and social divisions in the post-Edwardian era.

Stanley Miller
About the Author:

I am a retired electrical engineer that became alarmed upon learning my doctor's diagnosis of onset diabetes.  This concern lead me to finally do something about losing weight to try to mitigate the oncoming health problems. My doctor recommended losing at least 10 to 20 pounds as a start, which I began immediately. Concurrently, I began research  to determine the best healthy diet to lose and then maintain a new permanent, target weight. As I describe in the book, I was able to lose weight remarkably fast and with amazing results. Not only did the weight dissapear but my health situation significantly changed for the better as well. 

My wife was impressed with my diet and encouraged me to share my story with others that may be overweight or obese. She knew there were many people that could benefit from this diet plan. As a result of her gentle proding, I am now the proud author of my first book.

If any reader wishes to ask a question or share information, I can be reached by email geewhizztoo@gmail.

Description:

  This book is autobiographical in the sense that it is about my struggle with obesity most of my adult life and what I have done to conquer it. A fight that has finally ended as I am no longer obese. I am no longer overweight, and best of all, I am successfully maintaining a healthy, active weight. I could say journey to success was difficult and filled with dreadful sacrifice, but it was not. It was, in fact, surprisingly easy. Clearly one cannot lose more than fifty-five pounds and maintain this loss without a little discipline and sacrifice, but the payback far exceeds the small price one pays. What is it worth to gain better health, and physical liberation in the form of new strength, agility, balance, and energy? Good health is of paramount importance, particularly as we advance in age. If one is age 49 or older, chances are, they want to capture at least a portion of their youth. They want to be in good health, move without pain, and look good, lively, and attractive. They want to enjoy life and feel wanted by the people who are special in their life. People under 49 want these things, too, of course, and this diet plan will work just as well for them. Though this book has a primary focus toward the  more advanced in age, it is as critical for children and young adults among us. The overweight young people face serious social pressures daily, which affect relationships, confidence and self-esteem; their addiction-like eating habits to the wrong foods and lack of consistent, moderate exercise is putting them at risk to a life-long battle against overweight and unhappiness. 

 
The book gives the reader an account of the many benefits they will receive. Not only will they feel better but they will look better. Stylish clothes will fit right and look right. Their self-esteem will get a big boost, and they will be the envy of friends and pride of their family. Personal relationships can improve as well because when you like you, others will like you. 
 
What is the value of these benefits? Health is priceless. Sadly, many do not realize this until they lose it. What is your appearance worth? A lot based bythe money spent on beauty and vanity products and services bought each year. What are the value of personal relationships and self-esteem? They too are priceless, right. 
 
My story, 75/Fifty Five…Fit and Fat Free, presents a simple to understand and implement strategy. A plan to eat healthily, lose weight to meet your target goal, and then maintain the new permanent you.. If you want to reacquire a part of your pain free, look attractive, more lovable and stylish youth, this is the diet for you. If a 75 year old man can do it, so can you.

Description:

     Destined for a brilliant career in academia, Pascal Silver instead decides to be a risk taker. Packing up his unfinished philosophy dissertation he moves to Las Vegas to pursue his dual goals of winning the World Series of Poker and the only slightly less daunting task of finding the meaning to existence.

     Low on cash, Pascal is forced to take a part-time job at a private detective agency. Now, with his boss out of town, into his life walks the gorgeous Allegra LaPierre. She asks Pascal to find out who murdered her father, casino owner “Houston Phil” LaPierre.

     Using his uncanny poker skills, Pascal can tell everyone involved with Houston Phil has something to hide, including his ex-stripper widow, his knucklehead son, Bruce, and his old business partner, Fat Johnny, who’s in debt to a local gangster. Complicating matters, Bruce LaPierre is suddenly found dead in his office and the number one suspect is Allegra. Though all the evidence points to his client’s guilt, Pascal falls back on the famous wager of faith put forth by his illustrious namesake. He chooses to have faith in Allegra, not just because he’s gone head over heels for her, but because it’s a good bet.

     But when representatives of the Chicago mob show up and tell him to drop the case, Pascal has to take his greatest gamble yet. With Allegra’s life hanging in the balance, he’ll need to pull off the biggest bluff he’s ever attempted to get her back alive. Even if he does, he’s still left with the question “Who killed Phil?” a question only he is shrewd enough to answer.

Description:

SURFEANDO LAS OLAS DE LA VIDA es una novela iniciática basada en experiencias reales y complementadas por eventos puramente imaginarios que tienen lugar en las dimensiones sutiles e invisibles.

Este libro ha sido escrito con el noble propósito de ayudar a la colectividad de la que somos parte, partiendo de su unidad más pequeña, la individualidad.

Para mejorar el mundo, tenemos que empezar por nuestra vida, nuestro verdadero campo de acción y de experiencia, el único sobre el que tenemos poder total. Si todos dirigiéramos nuestra atención al desarrollo de la conciencia, el mundo no tardaría en volverse un lugar más amoroso y pacífico.

El camino empieza con uno mismo, y siendo que estamos en todo el globo, poco a poco, a través de las mejorías que cada uno logra en su vida, estaremos iluminando todo el planeta, justamente gracias a las muchas llamas individuales que se han vuelto a encender, alumbrando tanto la propia vida como la de los que nos rodean.

SURFEANDO LAS OLAS DE LA VIDA es una novela original y autentica, que trae información interesante y novedosa, mostrando una porción de lo que es la espiritualidad, y ¿cómo no?, invitando a la acción, porque de nada sirve saber si después no se comprueba la veracidad de la información recibida en la experiencia propia, que es y seguirá siendo lo fundamental en el camino de florecimiento interior al que este libro le está invitando.

La vida acontece siempre y solo en el eterno momento presente. Aproveche la sincronicidad que se le presenta, aquí y ahora, y súbase encima de la ola que está cruzando su camino, cuyo fin es el de encaminarle hacia su sanación, liberación y felicidad.

Aprender a surfear con conciencia las olas de la vida es el camino que ahora tenemos que recorrer, siempre acordándonos que las olas no vienen para hacernos sufrir sino para hacernos crecer.

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.

Bill Steigerwald
About the Author:

Discovering Steinbeck's fictions & lies in "Charley" was an accident, but I was the perfect guy to do the job. I'm a veteran newspaper and magazine journalist born and raised in Pittsburgh. I was an editor and writer/reporter/columnist for the Los Angeles Times in the 1980s, the Post-Gazette in the 1990s and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in the 2000s. My interviews and libertarian op-ed columns were nationally syndicated for about five years at CagleCartoons.com, and I worked briefly for CBS-TV in Hollywood in the late 1970s. My freelance articles, interviews and commentaries have appeared in many of the major newspapers in the USA and in magazines like Reason, Penthouse and Family Circle. I retired from the daily newspaper business in March 2009. "Dogging Steinbeck" is my first book.

Description:

Bill Steigerwald had a brilliant plan for showing how much America has changed in the last half century -- or so he thought. He’d simply retrace the 10,000-mile route John Steinbeck took around the USA in 1960 for his beloved bestseller “Travels With Charley.” Then he’d compare the America he saw with the country Steinbeck described in his classic road book. But when the intrepid ex-newspaperman from Pittsburgh started researching Steinbeck’s trip he uncovered a shocking literary scoop. Steinbeck’s iconic nonfiction book was a fraud. “Travels With Charley” was not just full of fiction. It was a deceptive and dishonest account of the great novelist’s actual road trip. Steigerwald made his own road trip in the fall of 2010, exactly 50 years after Steinbeck did. Chasing and fact-checking Steinbeck’s ghost for 11,276 miles and 43 days, meeting hundreds of ordinary Americans, often sleeping in the back of his car in Wal-Mart parking lots, he drove from Maine to California to Texas. Despite the Great Recession and national headlines dripping with gloom and doom, Steigerwald discovered an America along the Steinbeck Highway that was big, empty, rich, safe, clean, prosperous and friendly. He didn’t just reaffirm his faith in America to withstand the long train of abuse from Washington and Wall Street, however. He also exposed the half-century-old myths of “Travels With Charley,” ruffled the PhDs of the country’s top Steinbeck scholars and forced “Charley’s” publisher to finally tell the truth. Steigerwald is a well-traveled reporter and veteran libertarian columnist. With the spirit of a teenage driver, a dogged pursuit of the facts and a refreshing point of view about America proudly located in the heart of Flyover Country not Manhattan, he spins the story of his ride with Steinbeck’s ghost into a provocative, news-making and entertaining American road book.

About the Author:

Boo Walker spent his College of Charleston years and a few after in Nashville as a banjoist and songwriter for the avant-garde punchgrass band, The Biscuit Boys. Some hand problems knocked him out of the game, and he stumbled into a position with a short term equity trading firm based out of Charleston, SC. To feed his ravenous muse, he began writing his first novel, Lowcountry Punch. Around that time, what started as a passion in wine became a neurosis.



After six years of the Wall Street thing, Boo decided it was time to end his sedentary, computer-driven lifestyle. He grew out a handlebar mustache and moved clear across the country into a double-wide trailer situated on 5 acres of Malbec vines just down the road from Hedges Family Estate on Red Mountain in Washington State. The Hedges family took him in and taught him the art of farming and the old world philosophies of wine. He now travels the world peddling the family’s juice, and chances are you can find him in an airport somewhere working on his next novel.

Description:

In Charleston, South Carolina, Dewey Moses is a vegetable farmer, a bluegrass musician, a recovering alcoholic, and an aging hipster. In fact, he was wearing fedoras, rolled-up jeans, and Converse All-Stars before Portland and Brooklyn were born. Since getting booted out of his house and his band, he’s trying to get back on top. Now, he’s a year sober, and selling vegetables at the farmer’s market, but what he knows better than how to grow heirloom tomatoes is how to get down to the bottom of things. What started out as a favor for a friend is proving to be his most lucrative talent: investigative work.

But when Faye Callahan, the wife of one of the most powerful land developers in the South, comes to see him, she puts his talents to the test. Her daughter, Gina, jumped off the Cooper River Bridge a few days before. She left a suicide note in her abandoned car. There were witnesses. But Faye doesn’t believe it. Gina was as happy as she’d ever been, having just fallen in love. Why would her sweet baby take her own life? Agreeing to help, Dewey finds out quickly that sometimes it’s best to leave things alone.

Off You Go is a smart and quick read, and Dewey Moses is irresistible.

Here's what it's all about:

Of all the headaches contractors have when it comes to lead generation, marketing and sales, closing prospects and generating quality referrals   - Which one is Bugging the Heck out of You?

  • You’re spending $300 or more per month on advertising & marketing to generate leads and do you want to leverage that cost to get a better return?
  • You’re closing less than 50% of your sales calls.
  • You’ve lost jobs to bozo competitors and hackers... AND you know they are not as good as you.
  • You’re cutting your price more than 40% of the time….just to be in the running to get the job.
  • You find yourself giving honest estimates to too many people each week who only want the lowest price.
  • You feel insulted when people want to haggle over price. (Because you know your price is right for a quality project or system that will last).
  • You wonder how you can respond to this question without lowering your price and still get the job? “Gee Bill we like you but do you have any give in your price?”

This book is basic blocking and tackling.

In fact, as you review and study this program you may find yourself saying: “Hey...we do that”. Chances are you probably are doing some of the things in this program.

But here’s the difference.

You either don’t do them all...or in the right order...or with the wording that we’ve developed through testing and implementation since 2002.

In this simple to implement, easy to understand, complete program you and your sales team will learn team to:

First - increase your closing rate by 10%-50% almost immediately.

 This is not hype.  This rate of increase with his client’s is common when they implement the tactics and strategies.

Second - generate more leads and better quality leads, from your current website, ads and marketing, without having to spend any more money than you’re currently spending (or planning to spend).

Just a few of these things you’ll learn:

  • Take all the guesswork out of your presentations and ensure that you can confidently overcome the most common objections
  • Know what to say before, during and after meeting with the prospect
  • Have the confidence to close any profitable opportunity
  • Simply and easily increase your closing success without learning any slick sales training techniques or closing tricks.
  • What to say... and NOT say.... when you meet the prospect
  • How to deliver the number
  • Overcoming the most common objections
  • Proper follow up - without being a pest - and knowing when it's okay to walk away.

What real contractor’s who use these strategies have to say:

“We are on track in the 1st quarter of 2014 to exceed our sales for all of 2013.  The system has been amazing.  Out of the 5 prospects we have used the system with, I signed a construction contract and another 3 have signed design agreements.”  Jacob T.

"Your programs have made it so much easier to close - in fact I raised my prices 2 months ago and haven't seen any change in closing rate. Awesome." - Dalton. Supreme Painting

Thank you Mike the book was very helpful It has motivated me to do more to service the customer rather than just try to sell a cheaper product  It’s the little things tat make a big difference Thanks again Mike, Jimmy W.

Bottom Line:

If you're a good, reliable, honest company that's dedicated to providing quality work at a fair price...

If you’re tired of the endless frustrations of  lead generation, marketing and sales, closing prospects and generating quality referrals…

If you’re ready to learn how to closing more jobs, jobs, rarely having to lower your price to get a job, and start getting great referrals from you customers, then this book is for you.

The tower is an incredibly mammoth undertaking involving a remarkable 

coalition of private investors and governments. Part space elevator, 

part launching pad, the tower is placed on top of Mount Everest for 

several reasons: the mountain is one of the tallest peaks in the 

world, providing a 29,000 foot platform from which to work. It is the 

most famous peak in the world, making it a strategic marketing tool 

for attracting both investors and customers. Cities are actually 

built within the mountain to help finance the project. As the story 

unfolds, the unscrupulous nature of some men is quickly revealed, 

coupled with a blatant disregard for a global treasure. Amazing feats 

of technology are accomplished which boggle both the mind and 

imagination. Loyalties come and go, the end justifies the means, and 

the law of unintended consequences always seems to have the final say.

About the Author:

Captivated by the eerie and a lover of things that go bump-in-the-night, I thoroughly enjoy embracing the fear that resides within. A scary story or movie is always at the top of my list.

Mace of the Apocalypse is my first complete novel which delves into the darkness within all of us. It is meant to shock and repulse at times, but also question who we really are or could become in an atmosphere of pure insanity. There is also a spiritual side to the story, because inside each of us is a struggle to come to terms with the true meaning of our existence.

Description:

A terrorist attack on a BART train has left San Francisco in the grip of a powerful toxin. Spreading like wildfire, its victims convulse violently until death overtakes them. With death, however, comes a new type of existence; more horrible and deadly than anyone could have imagined.

A small band of survivors led by Mason “Mace” Marconi, struggle to stay one step ahead of the raging infected as the virus spreads, battling not only the undead but a psychotic gang of drug-addicted teenagers intent on ruling the new forbidden landscape.

Father Jack McCann, one of their traveling companions, has gained possession of the only antidote for the toxin. Seeing it as a sign of God's grace, he has yet to discover the terrible side effects it contains.

The enemy is everywhere. The enemy is within. The zombie apocalypse has arrived.

Description:

Simple Pushes presents a method for finding balance in life. This balance has been described as the interplay of yin and yang from the ancient Chinese, to the classical Greek inscription ‘Nothing in excess,’ to the modern day balances of feminine and masculine.

Beginning with an exercise of determining whether you push or pull on the steering wheel of your car, you can become aware of your unconscious habit of pushing or pulling in life. Pushing and pulling are not inherently good or bad, one not better than the other. Sometimes it is appropriate to push and sometimes it is better to pull.

People whose habit is pushing act without considering the circumstances or the impact of their actions upon others. People whose tendency is pulling think and feel too much instead of acting. These chronic habits lead to imbalance and create barriers to leading a fulfilled life.

This booklet contains an idea for gaining insight into why you do what you do and why others do what they do. It then gives examples of how to use simple pushes to achieve balance. This book is a short and simple read, yet may lead to profound changes in your life.

El Eslabón Perdido del Amor es un libro para hombres que las mujeres no pueden dejar de leer. El autor analiza los efectos de la etapa pre y pos eyaculación en la vida del hombre y la pareja. Las consecuencias de la masturbación van mucho más allá del placer momentáneo que esta causa. El hombre se transforma en un ser desconocido, con sentimientos confundidos que le hacen dudar del afecto hacia su pareja. Si esta sensación se mantiene a través del tiempo,  puede arruinar la relación con su mujer, ya que ella se convertirá en un ser degradado, mal tratado y carente de afecto. Ella le dará a él lo que está recibiendo y esta situación se convertirá en un círculo vicioso destinado al fracaso. Además, el autor traslada este concepto a otros niveles de la vida real, como la decadencia del súper amante, la violencia doméstica y la mutación del matrimonio. Estos aspectos analizados de una forma muy directa y controversial, causarán un impacto en el lector que lo hará reflexionar y posiblemente entender  que su felicidad depende de hacer sentir amada a su pareja. Este libro es la herramienta para lograr que a tu mujer le provoque hacerte feliz. A través de esta obra, la mujer podrá entender el  comportamiento a veces extraño del hombre e identificarse con múltiples situaciones descritas en este libro.

About the Author:

I began writing before I could write, telling stories to my young brother. When I learned to print, I toiled with the task of putting my stories onto paper.

Words take many forms. My background is in television production where every second counts, where scripts are analyzed for the power of word choices, clarity, motion, color, speed, and emotion.

I never fail to be amazed at how the printed word, no matter what the media, can change lives, bring pleasure, tears, or laughter to so many, and be so rewarding to those of us who are committed to the craft of writing.

The inspiration for WINTER'S DESTINY occurred while my husband and I were visiting Oregon's untamed coast in our motorhome. An early fall storm struck with such ferocity, that our parked RV rocked crazily on its axles, storm waves surpassed previous highs, the wind howled menacingly, and we were pelted with blowing sand and rain. We know the ocean and the coast, but the sudden, incredible ferocity of this storm was humbling. By morning the rising sun shone brilliantly over the vast Pacific Ocean, defying our memories of the night. This intriguing, pristine coast offers such raw, breathtaking beauty and extreme weather conditions that I felt it needed to be shared.

WINTER’S DESTINY

She's an architect, a wife, and a mother, but the quiet life ends abruptly for Amy Johnson. Alone, with a fall gale howling around the rafters, she turns to see a woman’s rain-streaked face staring at her through the dark window.  

The face is identical to her own! 

Instantly, Amy’s life crumbles. Her husband leaves, her only child disappears, and something sinister surrounds her and those she loves. Amy is catapulted into a world she knows nothing about--a place where a killer rules, where answers stay buried, where time ticks dangerously by, where her life is in constant peril, and worse, where her son, Jamie is hidden.  

To find her child, she must find her look-alike, and that dislodges a killer who hunts her relentlessly. Sheriff Dallas Wayburne’s investigation parallels Amy’s, and their combined efforts draw them together when time is critical and when their relationship adds yet another dimension to Amy’s stressful life.  

They finally track down the powerful, destructive man behind the scenes, learn the identity of Amy’s look-alike, and unravel a puzzle decades in the making. As time runs out, Amy struggles to save her son while fighting both a dangerous man and the perils of the treacherous Oregon coast.  

WINTER’S DESTINY is an edge-of-the-seat thriller set on Oregon’s rugged Pacific Coast.  Here, the story reaches its unique and spectacular conclusion.
