About the Author:

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.

Description:

Cade Grayson finds himself separated from his wife and daughter during a viral outbreak; between them are 3000 miles and millions of infected. Cade must form alliances and rely on his military training to run the gauntlet of undead, as well as the living.

He must leave Portland, Oregon, to locate his family in South, Carolina. Fifteen months after an honorable discharge the disillusioned former Tier-1 operator travels east with his less than clean-cut neighbor and two neighbor kids.

Meanwhile, his wife Brook is forced to flee the famillial home with daughter Raven in tow.

Humans bent on taking advantage of other humans are as much a threat as the newly risen walking corpses.

Incommunicado and desperate for any information about the outbreaks spread, Cade must chart the right course on his trudge to reunite with his family.

This crime novel features numerous erotic passages, both hetero and girl-girl.

About the Author:
I have long wished to see my words in print but like most career women who are also wives and mothers I have had to wait for the right time which I hope is now.
I love the written word and honestly believe that I can use that to convey my thoughts to the reader.
My working life in the health service and education has given me a very intensive insight into human nature, both tragic and comic. My interest in modern history leans my attitudes towards social comment rather than sensationalism.  
I would like to think that these attributes are recognisable in my work and even more so I would like my readers to appreciate those points of view
 
Description:
My tale of Harry Armitage and the highs and lows of his life will be easily recognisable to many people whose parents and grandparents grew up in the era between the two world wars in Northern England.  Perhaps the suspension of disbelief will be tested in that very few people of those times escaped from their life style.
There are still many men living who, as boys grew up with the words “when he starts work” ringing in their ears.
As for their women folk, love and affection never took pride of place against the threat of a lost pay packet.
Harry`s story does not end with Harry`s Prospects- his life and that of his son will still interweave in the sequel which will follow.
If you like a tale well told with characters you can believe in, try this one

Grace Frame
About the Author:

The author joined the Women's Movement in 1968 after personal study in Mythology, Anthropology and Archaeology with a final commitment to Anthro-Apology.  She is a cartoonist as well as a researcher and writer.  Her works include other e-books: Wartime In America 1941-1945 -- An Homefront Idyl; The Single Girls' Guide to Greek Gods; The Onus on Men and How It Grew -- The Bonus to Women; Gender Therapy, an Illustrated Anthology.

Description:

In the words of the courageous archaeologist missionary who sacrificed her own well-being to save all Atlanteans from further descent on the evolutionary scale: We are fotunate to have come to Atlantis at a time long after we might have encountered the Rockmen of Megaton Island in their rise as Rockefellas or in their rapid decline as Goodfellas.  Worse we might have encountered the 'World's Most Powerfus Man' in the form of a John-son or a Jack-son, or have been 'smitten' by silver screen goddesses.  Rather, we rapidly gained ascendancy over the inhabitants in their present total degardation.  Wherever we encounter the species, we must not assign our qualities of caring and compassion to such combative, overly talkative animals or we run the risk of permitting their modern mutants, however small in size and number they may be, too much liberty to run about untethered.  (I do protest that the caging of any animal should only be done in extreme circumstances regardless of the custom among You-Mens to keep so many of their own kind in cages.)

And so, this long over-due illustrated study for a comprehensive Anthro-Apology is offered to the perceptive reader based on the translated journals of Sorrel Starling, a deserted, denigrated missionary to the Burning West.  Through Rev. Starling's hands-on analysis of finds out of the cavernous ruins of Megaton Island, sifted and sorted from the mud of an infested swamp where tons of wash were white-washed, exhumed from haunted religious sites in Holy-Wood, the frightening, shocking, wierd evidence mounts to conclusively reveal how ancient Skyscraperans of the First and Second Millennia lived and died. 

Let the reader decide under Universal Suffrage whether You-Manity should be classified as and Endangered Species or a Dangerous Species. Please sign up to receive more information when The Legendary Skyscraper You-Mens is a published e-book.

Barbara Bartocci
About the Author:

I was 29 years old and the mother of three small children when my husband, a Navy fighter pilot, was killed in combat.  I was totally unprepared to be a widow and to offer my  fatherless children the support they needed. I tried! Oh, how hard I tried! But there were no books or support groups or guidance for a grieving young mother at that time.. 

 My son Barty was seven. By his early teen years, he was acting out in very self-destrictive ways. A psychiatrist told me, "Your son is emotionally stuck at the age of seven--the age he was when his father died-- and unless you  get help now he will grow up but stay 'stuck' emotionally. It will hamper his relationships and work career."  No parent wants to hear those words.  MY ANGRY SON shares with readers how we got help.

For most of my adult life, I have been a professaional writer and all my best writing appears in the form of stories taken from my own life. I deeply believe that in sharing our storiees we not only help others, we find a higher meaning for ourselves, even in the face of  tragedy. 

You will find my stories in many major women's magazines and in Readers Digest, as well as in nine  published books and several anthologies, including four Chicken Soup of the Soul books.I have won awards for my writing, but the reponses I savor are those from readers who say "Thank you. Your story helped me  through a difficult time in my own life.".

 

 

 

 

Description:

 

For many years, readers have encouraged me to reprint my book, MY ANGRY SON, our family’s true story which first appeared as a book-length feature in Readers Digest magazine,  then became a hard back book, a soft cover book, and was optioned for a CBS-movie.

When Kaiya's father manages to reach the Cloister, the Sisters want to put him to death.

About the Author:

“Ray intertwines key dynamics of the global environment and American society to explore how individuals and families will be forced to respond to intersecting global crises. This is a heck of a story with a large cast of compelling characters.”

—  Charles Hugh Smith, author/blogger, Of Two Minds

“Earth’s climate is unstable, and we are pushing it hard towards a sudden shift to a new state by pumping huge quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A radical shift in the climate between the years 2018-2028 as envisioned by Welch is entirely plausible.”

—  Dr. Jeff Masters, Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

“We are already seeing (as predicted) outsized warming of the Arctic compared to other parts of the globe. There is growing evidence that we are already seeing weather patterns being influenced by loss of Arctic sea ice.” 

—  Dr. Mark Serreze, Director, National Snow and Ice Data Center, U. of Colorado at Boulder

“Ray has worked in the energy business for years and knows it inside out.” 

—  Chris Rafael, Editor, California Energy Markets

A Change in the Weather is a well-written and disturbing page-turner.  Ray has composed an edgy mix of fact and fiction that kept each of us up late each night until we were done. We looked forward to every chapter as he was writing them.”

—  Arjan Khalsa, CEO, Conceptua Math
—  Dalbir Khalsa, Physician Assistant, Community Medicine

Description:

A Change in the Weather follows the Russell family during the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of the polar ice cap, from March 2028 through May 2029. The Arctic has inverted from heat reflector to heat sink, and the jet stream has broken from its age-old trajectory to whip the globe like an unattended fire hose. Rainfall patterns shift the world over. Agriculture fails. The international economy collapses. Terrorism surges.

In the ensuing panic, the United States embraces President Roland Strauch, a Biblical literalist who heads the American Homeland Party and its armed militia, the Order of the Eagle and Cross.

Each member of the Russell family does what he or she thinks is right in an America where democracy and Christianity struggle to survive.  What each thinks is right couldn't be more in conflict.

Barbara G Louise
About the Author:

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.

Cleaveland and the universe of The Rabble and the Rich can be found somewhere in the infinite reaches of the Multiverse, along with: Utopia;  Erewhon;  Oz;  Lilliput;  Precipice, CA;  Shora;  Earthsea;  Hain;  Gethen;  Anarres;  (The Word for World is) Forest;  Aka;  Middle Earth;  the Shire;  BarsoomMalacandra;  Salvay;  Anthea;  Wonderland;  Underland;  the Island of Dr. Moreau;  Kendra-on-the-Delta;  Arun;  Barrayar;  Quaddiespace;  Lucifer (the planet);  Zomia;  Kkhadee;  Chaos;  Dyson Prime;  Nueva Cuba;  Darkover;  the Stand on Zanzibar;  (the disk of) Gaia (in orbit of Saturn)Beninia;  Mouth-of-Mattapoisett, MA;  A Paradise Built in Hell;  Luna Free State;  the Golden Globe;  Babylon 5;  and the Star Trek Galaxy.

Description:

This book is now vailable on Amazon.com for $2.99, the lowest price Kindle will allow.

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.

With limited resources, they used trial and error to learn how they could date women and not get used. After analyzing women, their emotions and behaviors; skilled, clever tactics were created.

These tactics, coupled with confidence, allowed them to get the best looking girls to have sex with them quickly and inexpensively. The One and a Half Date Rule blog allows you to connect further with these two professionals.

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.

Heather Abraham holds a BA and MA in Religious Studies from Georgia State University and is the founder and editor of the eMagazine Religion Nerd. Originally from Jeannette, Pennsylvania, she currently resides in Atlanta with her husband Teo and their three beloved dogs. The Bookie's Daughter is her first book.
 
Description:

A provocative and candid memoir spanning the first nineteen years of the author's life, The Bookie's Daughter resonates with elements of Sopranos and Running with Scissors-zany, violent, and oh-so-human. Written by Heather Abraham, The Bookie's Daughter is a wild ride through a childhood dominated by Big Al, the author's larger-than-life bookie father, and Bonnie, her trigger-happy alcoholic mother. Devoted to their family yet in thrall to their prodigious addictions, they recklessly plunged their daughters into a dangerous life of crime. Join The Bookie's Daughter in a perfect storm of adolescent angst, crime, and shocking adventures. Follow along as the author and her sister traverse a childhood where gambling, police raids, trials, public scorn, spitting Studda Bubbas, hitmen, IRA gunrunners, pedophiles, bodyguards, and midnight runs for illegal goods were considered routine. The narrative is twistedly entertaining, with a range of colorful wacky characters, as well as shockingly raw in its recognition of the destructive nature of dysfunctional family dynamics and parental addictions. Throughout a series of outrageous, oftentimes violent, misadventures, Abraham manages to conjure up loony vistas, thick with description and humorous acceptance

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.

About the Author:

Patricia (Uziel) Terry was born in Kansas City, Kansas, Oct. 1941. Grew up on Strawberry Hill, went to Saint John the Baptist School and was in the adjacent orphanage just like my Uncle Willie Radkay. I was raised by my grandmother, Uncle Willie's mother. I never meant to be an author but listening to my Uncle's stories I knew they had to be in print for posterity. I can only imagine what he didn't tell me about the life he led.

Description:

Willie Radkay grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, spanning the two World Wars, Prohibition, the Great Depression and the Gangster era. A lawless soul, Willie survived numerous bank robberies, jail breaks, escapes and gun battles. Looking at old microfilm of newspaper articles in relation to a jewelry heist my Uncle told me about it, I read that he had been shot 12-times.  I took the printed article to my Uncle to ask him about being shot.  He said he didn't remember.  I said: "How can you get shot 12-times and not remember", he replied, "Tough skin, soft bullets and they didn't hit anything important". In the book a picture of Willie's torso shows the six slugs still in his body but imagine my surprise after viewing the entire X-ray after the book was published he also had a slug in each arm, which meant he carried 8-bullets in his body for over sixty-years. In later years when he drove to our home with a fractured hip from a fall my husband and I carried him from the driver's seat to the passenger seat.  My husband commented: "You sure are heavy for a little guy".  Uncle Willie said: "Yeah that's from all the lead in my ass".
 The Kansas City Star said that Willie was one of the most notorious armed robbers in Kansas City's history.http://www.willieradkayalcatraz.com

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.

Toni Annable
About the Author:

Toni Annable and  Maria Kaspar started writing bilingual children's books for school language programs lots of years ago. They are really pleased to reissue these books in the ebook format as well as the new stories coming up. Currently, the ebooks are in English/French and English/Spanish. We hope to get some of them out in English/Arabic.

When Toni is not writing, she spends her time editing other manuscripts and a plant tissue culture newsletter. She has a Master's Degree in Public Health and started out in nursing and health education. Later she taught in elementary schools and was teaching when she met Maria Kaspar. Maria and her husband had come to the US to further their education. She was a French teacher writing children's short stories and poems - and they were off and running in bilingual children's books, French, English and Spanish. Over the years they have had lots of fun creating these stories and plan on many, many more.

They were most fortunate to get Lawrence Lumetta to illustrate the first 3 books. You can see these in the ebooks. He was a noted artist and had many fine works exhibited world wide. The detail he put into the illustrations makes them works of art on their own. Larry retired and is no longer available for additional illustrations. He will be sorely missed him as they develop new works.
