Description:

"Paul is dead" was only the beginning.

It's 1970 and Beatle fans around the world comb the album covers and listen to Beatle songs forward and backward, trying to find “clues” that might lead to a logical solution or confirmation to the rumor that “Paul is dead.”

When two college radio DJ's join the search, they learn what the clues REALLY mean and begin an odyssey that takes them far beyond their studio. They discover a conspiracy to create a genuine Utopia, a true "Octopus' Garden." They are launched into a world-wide intrigue and quest that very quickly changes their lives forever.

After forty years, Jeff Scott finally reveals the solution to the mystery and confesses that the “clues” were not clues—no quotes necessary. The were guides that led to a life-changing experience and a life changing place: a genuine “Octopus’ Garden” beneath the waves.

Based on actual events and people, the story is an authentic excursion through the dreams of the Beatle Generation. But where does reality end and imagining begin?

The book recaptures the spirit and excitement of Beatlemania and--perhaps most important--the time when Beatle fans and Baby Boomers felt there was something special going on in their world.

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:

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.

About the Author:

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. My books include The Way of One Gypsy, The Gypsy's Book, Drab Lil: A Gypsy's Medicine Book and Madame Sosostris Explains (a poetry patchwork). Married and living in Florida, my two sons and granddaughter live at least 995 miles north but cell phones and eMail bridge the distance daily.

Description:

THE TITLE: At the age of seventeen I discovered T.S. Eliot's poem “The Wasteland.” The only part of the poem I could relate to was about “Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyante.” Four of the tarot cards are invented by Eliot (Drowned Phoenician Sailor, Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks and the Lady of Situations). Having invented my own Drom Ek Romani cards as part of my heritage, I could appreciate his imaginary cards with their mystical names. My first poem explains each tarot card and the second one details the Drom Romani although I make no claim to be a “famous clairvoyante.” The other poems are a patchwork of subjects including tributes to Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, and other writers of music and poetry.

THE POEMS: With the exception of several free verse poems, the others are a mixture of Shakespearean Sonnets, Terza Rima, Rima Royale, and, well, more sonnets. The poetry forms are very confining yet I attempted to make them all-encompassing in their little world. When writing the 22 sonnets for the Drom Romani I began speaking in rhyming iambic pentameter in my dreams. Does that make me a poet? I hope so. Failing that, a sonnet a day keeps senility away. I am hoping that whatever your age, you find enjoyment in my poetry.

S.J. Munson
About the Author:

S.J. Munson has been a pastor, writer and teacher for the past two decades.  He received a B.A. in English from Princeton, along with a prize for fiction. The author of numerous Christian dramas, his call to fulltime ministry came while he was working as a screenwriter in Hollywood. He went on to receive an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, with a concentration in New Testament Greek.

“I love history and this story gave me an opportunity to weave history, faith and mystery into one story,” Munson said. “Anyone who is interested in fiction, art or ancient history will love this book.”

"There’s a lot of fiction or non-fiction out there that deals in some way with the temple treasure, the rebuilding of the temple, end-time prophecy and the State of Israel. I wanted to write a detective novel that challenges the reader both intellectually and emotionally to reexamine some dearly held assumptions in the light of history.

"The Romans looted the Jerusalem temple in AD 70, and I always wondered what became of those treasures. The Romans were such careful historians, whatever happened, there had to be a paper trail. As it turns out, the story is quite an epic. For five hundred years, the treasures survived fire, barbarian invasions and war, traveling from Jerusalem, to Rome, Carthage, Constantinople, and back to Jerusalem.  Then, oddly, in the mid-sixth century, the trail goes cold.  What happened after that is, of course, a source of much speculation, and that’s where fiction and imagination take over.  The protagonist in my book gets caught up in the search but ends up finding something infinitely more valuable."

Description:

What ever happened to the treasures of the Jerusalem temple looted by the Romans in AD 70? Their fate is shrouded in mystery ...

Former art historian Michael Grammaticus, Jr. has inherited an ancient and dangerous secret-and it seems he is the last to know! When his parents are killed under suspicious circumstances, he travels to Rome to investigate, and the clues lead him to a fascinating world of ancient art, medieval manuscripts, and a dangerous mix of religion and international politics. Descended from an endless line of Greek scholars, he can't resist being drawn into their cryptic world, and soon the same relentless forces that destroyed his father begin to hound Michael as well. He discovers not only that his father had been an outspoken advocate for Palestinian Christians, but also that one of his ancestors was the bearer of a secret that continues to haunt his family-- a riddle regarding the whereabouts of the coveted treasure of King Herod's temple. This journey of discovery also becomes one of faith, as the cynical and disillusioned Michael undergoes a harrowing tribulation that leads him not only to the reasons for his father's death, but also to something far greater than the temple treasure itself. A delightful romp for lovers of fiction, art and ancient history-- and for anyone who ever wondered what really happened to that treasure!

 
Here's what people are saying about The Treasure of Israel...
 
"An incredible story that will keep you on the edge of your seat!" --Greg Holmes, Revival Nation Publishing
 
"...One part historical mystery, one part modern thriller, and altogether a great read...Christian fiction at its best."    --Long Island Council of Churches, "Prelude," September 2009

"For a huge puzzle, I found not a puzzle-piece out of place. As the treasure-search genre of books expands, this quality is important. It also is an obvious treasure piece never before dealt with. This one hangs together. Needless to say, I recommend it without reservation."   --Rev. Hank Keating, President, Keating Christian Ministries, Inc.

"Not since the early works of Morris West has a novel more accurately described the interplay of tensions between the religious world and Western society."  --Christian Newswire

"What the avid reader of historical novels always needs is a well-researched, well-written novel that gives us a sense of having walked with the author into an enchanted land of his making. This, happily, is what S. J. Munson's novel does. It is not an ordinary historical novel, but one of depth and learning and style."             --Ralph Stewart Smith, author

 

From Amazon.com customer reviews...
 
"Fast-paced, gripping and thoroughly enjoyable. Total escape to a world parallel to The DaVinci Code, deftly layered with humor, insight, history and adrenaline. Highly recommended."
 
"Powerful & Intelligent Literature - Couldn't put it down!"
 
"Had me on the edge of my seat, and the surprise ending was not only exciting but the perfect conclusion to a book that satisfied my every expectation from a good novel."
 
"The historical accuracy is astounding, the writing is superb, the idea is creative and original. He claims his space and has his own unique style and nails it. He uses flashbacks and an expressive narrative that builds the kind of tension that's needed to forge a "sit on the edge of your seat" suspense thriller!"
 
"One of those books that you sacrifice sleep for, just to get through 'one more chapter.'"
 
"The dialogue is smart and sassy and hilarious."

Description:

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.

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.

About the Author:
Description:

Constance (Connie) Pendleton and Connor Martin, both 13 years old, are friends and classmates in the upstate New York city of Billington. In the summer of 1954 they are vaguely aware that they might want to be something more than friends, for they are also vaguely aware of their budding sexuality and the distant allure of romance.

            Connie and Connor tell their story, which encompasses details of Americans’ way of life in the 1950s, in the first person in alternating short chapters (1,500 to 2,500 words) in language appropriate to young persons of the time.

They befriend a new kid, Sidney Asher, also 13 years old, an orphan who has come from Calais, Maine, to Billington to live with his uncle, Clark Meredith, and the uncle’s new wife, Frances. Sidney is a shy, retiring boy of formal manners. Connie and Connor’s friendship helps him adjust to a new way of life in a different region of the country.

The three young persons’ happy discovery of one another is shaken, as is their world, when Connie and Connor come across a criminal plot that could severely endanger the lives of Sidney and his newfound uncle and aunt.

But Connie and Connor, like Nancy Drew joining hands with one of the Hardy Boys, become involved, at first reluctantly, then steadfastly. What ensues is a snooping about followed by a fast-paced chase, resulting in the two youngsters’ separately saving each other’s life.

Ending, of course, happily—and with a last-minute twist.

About the Author:

MI nombre es Fernando Sobenes, soy peruano – venezolano, oficial retirado de la Policía Nacional del Perú (Ex Policía de Investigaciones) y abogado, me encanta la lectura y escribir. Creo que mi trabajo es especial porque aborda de manera singular la  conducta del ser humano ante las adversidades y su forma de afrontarlas. Lleva al lector a un punto muy alto de suspenso durante el desenlace de la trama como si fuera una montaña rusa, lo hace de manera ágil y entretenida.  También aborda la manera en que vemos a la figura de Dios, es decir: Como nos la muestra la Iglesia Católica y nos hace pensar un poco más allá de lo que nos han enseñado.  Hace reflexionar a la vez que busca entretener  a quienes disfrutamos de este tipo de novelas: El terror y suspenso están presentes de principio a fin, donde un ser tenebroso, terrible destruye la vida de las personas de manera macabra y sobrenatural. Es una novela que no se puede dejar a un lado y estoy convencido de que logra su cometido.

Description:

Norte de Kuwait 1991 Guerra del Golfo Pérsico; Peter Donovan Teniente del Ejército de los Estados Unidos al mando de un grupo de soldados cae en una emboscada en el desierto de Irak y como consecuencia sucede una masacre. En ese lugar halla un amuleto que guarda en su bolsillo sin saber que encierra un poder oculto y a causa de ello; tiene su primer encuentro aterrador en un sepulcro bajo las arenas del desierto con un ser maligno que lo llevará al umbral de la muerte.

Transcurren varios años luego de estos acontecimientos y Peter, después de abandonar las Fuerzas Armadas, se traslada a un lugar en los Estados Unidos llamado “Lago Feliz” donde se establece y contrae matrimonio formando una familia. Este es un lugar muy bello donde las personas viven felizmente alejadas del estrés de las grandes ciudades. Allí conviven otras tantas que disfrutan del clima, tranquilidad y belleza del lugar que cuenta con un lago y un gran bosque.

Peter se desempeña como Sheriff del pueblo y se reúne con algunos de sus vecinos los fines de semana para compartir en familia. Sus vidas transcurren con tranquilidad y felicidad hasta el día en que se les ocurre jugar con la Tabla Ouija y utilizan el amuleto traído desde el desierto, abriendo sin querer, una entrada para que la maldad llegue a sus vidas; destruyéndolas, sembrando espanto y muerte. Fenómenos paranormales, posesiones espeluznantes y muertes trágicas crean un clima de suspenso y terror a esta obra.
Esta novela aborda el aspecto de la lucha entre el bien y el mal. Uno de los protagonistas, el Padre Josh Carter, lucha contra sus principios y todo lo aprendido en el seminario al darse cuenta que la propia Iglesia se contradice y no acata sus preceptos. Comienza a renegar de su fe y a colocar en tela de juicio a las autoridades del clero y comprueba (muy a su pesar) que ha sido engañado lo cual lo desmorona emocionalmente.

También toca el tema del exorcismo y de la visión que tiene la Iglesia al respecto, así como la manipulación que se hace de estas situaciones. Problemas de índole mental que son utilizadas a conveniencia como métodos de propaganda y captación de fieles. Esta novela atrapa de inmediato al lector y está dedicada a un público adulto, personas que gusten de emociones fuertes y las hacen identificarse con los personajes, sus vivencias, temores, amores y sufrimientos. Es una novela ágil, emocionante y llena de suspenso, que no se puede dejar a un lado, entretiene y mantiene al lector en un constante interés por su desenlace.

He retired in 1995 and returned to northeast Arkansas, where he purchased the Spirit Lake property.

     The original lake, built by beaver, was destroyed in the 1800’s, when loggers cleared the land of all the trees.

     In 1980, Spirit Lake Development Corporation rebuilt the lake, renaming it Spirit Lake. Reaganomics halted any further development of the property.

     In 1995, Glen learned he had Indian blood. His great grandmother was full-blooded Quapaw Indian. With that knowledge and a story to tell, he began to research his heritage. With the help of Bill Jones, the story has now been told.

                This story is about the Quapaw Indians that lived on Spirit

          Lake in the 1500s.                         

Description:

This is the story of a young Quapaw Indian boy who lived in northeast Arkansas, just north of the present day city of Pocahontas, in the year 1541, and how his life was drastically changed by events not of his choosing. How he took on the mighty De Soto and his entire army, as he sought revenge for what De Soto had done to his people. He was the last of his tribe, and he would slay the famous conquistador, De Soto. Kyota was transformed from a young boy, who simply wished to be a great hunter, into a great warrior, and the legend of Spirit Lake.

*****************************************************************************************************************

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?

Description:

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.

 "I have twenty short stories and three novels in my head!"

Description:

For many years, I wanted to write a story about the mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana.  Particularly the role of the Air Force in airlifting the remains back to the United States.  I refused to write about it because I thought anything connected with Jonestown should entail one sentence: Guyana was a horrible, horrible event, and the U.S. Military did gruesome things they should never, never had done. 

But as time passed, the fact that I never wrote about Guyana became oddly disturbing.  If you’re a writer, the assimilation of experiences almost obliges you to write about them.  So I wrote Ghost of Guyana.
