Mis versos son verdades incompletas, nacidos en el instante de una mirada entre unos párpados intimidados; una breve aproximación a la forma en la que yacen los brazos apoyados, con el color brillante de un suspiro, a la necesidad de la alegría o la tristeza que guardan los pequeños gestos que apenas se perciben, a las lágrimas de emoción estética ...; emergen como un conocimiento dormido en una idea que despierta.

I love all kinds of books, and enjoy writing in many genres. So far, I've published two books, one about modern vampires, and one a medieval fantasy. I love a good sword-swinging adventure, and, if it's funny, so much the better. A deep love of Terry Pratchett style comedy inspired Misadventures in the Art of Chivalry, at least to some extent. A sequel will probably be forthcoming, but my whims may take me somewhere else first.
Princess Calanthe's extraordinarily boring life has just taken a very interesting turn. Two out-of-work knights have kidnapped her as part of a brilliant money-making scheme. Only thing is, her kingdom is flat broke.
Her worried parents reluctantly enlist the help of her brother Kendrick to rescue her. But Calanthe doesn't want to go home. Their plans ruined, the little band needs a new source of income. Plan number one: rob a dragon.
As if they didn't have enough problems, Calanthe is being pursued by a Prince that she refused to marry. In the midst of it all, Calanthe must decide what matters most, and the lengths she will go to defend it.
David T. Pennington grew up in a small northern California town called Paradise, but his home is in San Francisco. While his associate’s degree in computer programming has helped pay the bills, his bachelor’s degree in psychology has informed his writing. His love of fiction—mainly mysteries, science fiction, and thrillers—is balanced by his fascination with books on futurism, theoretical physics, and cosmology. Peer Through Time is his debut novel.
In 2079, a time travel experiment sends physicist Carmela Akronfleck further back in time than she’d intended. Though she’s still in her small northern California town, the year is 1936 and she must learn to live without the technology she’s come to rely on. Her neurological implants should be dormant, but she receives a cryptic message, periodically accompanied by an audio transmission from the future. It’s the voice of her former psychotherapist, an android named Kass, stating his innocence in a series of murders occurring in 2079.
When Carmela deciphers the code as a hit list, she's shocked to discover her mother and sister are among the intended targets. Further evidence reveals the killer's true identity, but the inoperative time portal prevents her from returning to save her family and vindicate Kass.
She considers another option: hunt down the killer's ancestors and avert his existence without radically changing history. She devises a plan to protect her family, haunted by doubts that she's becoming the kind of person she's always loathed—one willing to take another's life.
This is a republished (in ebook form) collection of some of Mr. Jacoby's finest poem.

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.

I am a new young author that goes to school at UT Knoxville where my stepdad and I have a permanent residence in the woods of south central Tennessee. This is where I enjoy the rural woodland setting of the home I share with my dad.
I began delving into reading erotic stories several years ago and quickly became frustrated with the plethora of rude and violent stories with practically no plot and line after line of nothing but 4 letter words. After much encouragement from friends and family I decided to write short stories with what I feel would be more true to life experiences.
If you are tired of non-descript sex and want to read of a loving encounter with writing so good you can visualize the participants and what they are not only doing but what they are feeling then I hope you will find my writings enable you to do so.
Shannon's Exploration, Daddy's Torment is a compilation of emails between a daughter and her stepfather after she leaves home for school. It delves into the relationship between her and him well before her leaving. Both of them tell their story of seduction, pleasure and forbidden acts.
The format is that of the emails sent back and forth and gives the reader a unique view from both sides of this illicit affair.
You will read details about not only the sexual acts themselves and how they evolved but also the feelings of these two lovers as their affair grew and got more forbidden.
While most erotic writings that are short are meant to be read long enough to excite someone you will find this novelette will keep you entertained for much longer. However, you will want to read this several times as each time you read it the Love between the two becomes deeper.
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.

Vladimir Putin has a simple goal: raise the price of oil by launching attacks in five maritime chokepoints. He knows his regime will collapse should oil prices remain low.
Within the elaborate game of geopolitical strategy, ISIS caliphate, terrorist provocations, and global markets, Putin launches guerrilla warfare under the sea with the use of Seaborne Spetsnaz and submarines. He knows his plan will only work if the attacks are perpetrated by Islamic extremist. A war in which Putin has the ultimate advantage of stealth and surprise.

Her book Advanced Plotting helps writers fine-tune their plots. Learn more at www.chriseboch.com. Chris also writes novels of suspense and romance for adults under the name Kris Bock; read excerpts at www.krisbock.com.
About The Genie’s Gift, Chris says: My first memories come from living in Saudi Arabia as a child. Though my family lived in an American camp, we got to visit local cities and explore the desert. We spent six years there, moving back to the United States in time for me to enter sixth grade. My parents returned to Saudi Arabia when I was in college, and I spent a month there one winter. We also visited Egypt and Bahrain, and I later traveled to Turkey with a friend.
The Middle East today is very different from the culture shown in this novel. Still, reminders of those days exist in the buildings, artwork, and food. And of course in the stories. I drew heavily on One Thousand and One Nights, often known as The Arabian Nights, for the mythology in The Genie’s Gift. The stories in One Thousand and One Nights came from Indian, Persian, Arabic, and other sources. They were collected over hundreds of years, beginning in the eighth century. They were not originally seen as children’s stories, though later translations targeted kids.
As in The Arabian Nights, The Genie’s Gift is a series of interlocking stories that make up a whole.
The Genie’s Gift is a lighthearted action novel set in the fifteenth-century Middle East, drawing on the mythology of The Arabian Nights.
Thirteen-year-old Anise, shy and timid, dreads marrying the man her father chooses for her. Her aunt tells her about the Genie Shakayak, the giver of the Gift of Sweet Speech. He lives high atop Mount Quaf, many weeks’ journey across a barren desert. The way is barred by a dozen dangers and trials. But those few who cross the desert and defeat the guardians of the mountain receive their reward. From that day forward, their words drip like honey from their lips, charming all who hear them, and no one can deny them anything they ask.
Anise is determined to find the genie and ask for the gift, so she can control her own future. But the way is barred by a series of challenges, both ordinary and magical. How will Anise get past a vicious she-ghoul, a sorceress who turns people to stone, and mysterious sea monsters, when she can’t even speak in front of strangers? Will she ever reach the top of Mount Quaf—and if she does, can she convince the Genie to give her the gift?
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.

Song of the Canyon Kid is my second novel and my first full-blown comedy. My previous works were the road rage novel Red Asphalt, a true travel tale called Please Hold Thumbs and my movie memoir In the Dark.
This one is a total cartoon. The main character is a singing cowboy. What is the last book you hummed? The characters are intentionally over-the-top and the entire tone is a sweet parody, an homage to the B-movies westerns of yesteryear. And in full disclosure, it's also a novelization. I based this novel on my comic melodramatic play entitled Song of the Lone Prairie or Poem on the Range. Prairie debuted in 1987 at the late, great Pollardville Palace Showboat Theater in Stockton, California, a production I also directed.
Pollardville was a magical place. We had the theater that specialized in melodrama and vaudeville. On the same property was a western ghost town that housed movie sets from the William Wyler film The Big Country. This is where we'd get paid to play cowboy on the weekends, duties that included robbing the train, engaging in fisticuffs and shooting it out with fellow gunslingers at High Noon. Pollardville was the birthplace of The Canyon Kid.
I realize the stigma of a novelization, but I felt creatively stagnated and needed an writing exercise to get myself in gear. Digging through my old writings, I came across his script for Lone Prairie. a melodrama I consider to be the culmination of everythin I learned at Pollardville. Adapting it into novel form came fairly easy, fleshing ot the characters and transposing the stage direction into prose. Soon, it took on a life of its own and I was hooked.
I loved revisiting my old characters like Nastassia Kinky and her brother Two Gun Boris, the fastest gun this side of the Ukraine. I also made The Kid's horse, Thunder, more of a supporting character. And the love story is something I never I thought I was capable of pulling off, but I feel like I did.
Overall I had a blast with this, the most fun I've had with a project since I wrote the original back in the '80's. Song of the Canyon Kid has given me back the joy of writing. By returning to my roots, I found that in order to move forward, sometimes you can go home home again.

Be it ever so hostile, there's no place like home.
When a straight-shooting, guitar-strumming singing cowboy known as The Canyon Kid returns to Dirt Clod, Missouri, he finds his hometown in ruins due to the machinations of a corrupt "hanging judge" named Basil Kadaver. With the help of his co-horts, a slinky seductress named Nastassia Kinky, owner of The Golden Goulash Saloon, and her brother, Two Gun Boris, the Judge has the town in his tyrannical grip and is beginning to squeeze. To make matters worse for The Kid, he also discovers that his childhood sweetheart, Darla Darling, is engaged to his sworn enemy, a desperado nicknamed "The Bushwhacker" who is now the town sheriff. How is The Canyon Kid going to save the day, let alone croon a few tunes, with a noose around his neck?
Song of the Canyon Kid is a wild and wooly western comedy romance that'll put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. It may even make you say "Yee-haw!"

This book will help you stop replaying unconscious patterns from your family-of-origin in your adult relationships and with your children. Most people don't understand how and why this happens, so they feel powerless to change things. This practical how-to book contains many stories about how Barry changed his life by identifying and breaking his dysfunctional family patterns. It will will help you not only break free of your family patterns, but also change your life.
How to Identify Your Family Patterns, the first in a two-part series, presents 12 common relational patterns that unconsciously replay in all families and are the primary cause of human suffering. These dysfunctional, addictive family patterns often lay dormant until adulthood, when they begin to interfere with intimacy in relationships.
This book contains many exercises, inventories and self-awareness activities to help you break free of the intergenerational legacy of attitudes and behaviors family patterns carry with them.The author believes that these unconscious patterns are factors in emotional, sexual and physical child abuse and neglect; all crimes of violence; all addictions, including eating disorders, alcoholism, and drug abuse; teenage suicides; all unhappy adult relationships; and perhaps all illnesses.
This book will help if you:
Reading this book will shift your thinking about yourself and the struggles you have in your life in ways that you can’t even imagine. It will help you see things in ways that make you feel like you've just walked out of a life-long fog.

Personality disorder... What a tired and over-used topic, right? However; have you ever heard a story from the perspective of emerged identities? This is a perfect chance to see a picture from the eyes of 'the disease' itself, without ridiculous superhuman abilities and maniacal multiple homicides. A tale of a totally average guy's recently arisen 'dark-side', with an unusual mix of little comedy, many disappointments and Yuri's snow vodka.
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.
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.
