Description:

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:

  1. Feel your partner treats you like you were treated growing up.
  2. Want your partner to change so you can feel better.
  3. Feel unappreciated and unseen by your partner.
  4. Walk on eggshells so your partner won’t criticize you.
  5. Find it difficult to have fun and be spontaneous.
  6. Have conflicts that remind you of those you experienced growing up.
  7. See parts of your parent’s relationship in your current relationships.
  8. Not enjoy sex the way you would like to.
  9. Feel criticized by your partner the way you were criticized by your parents.
  10.  Experience difficulty in sustaining intimacy in your relationships.
  11.  Get afraid of being too successful.
  12.  Fear making mistakes when you are faced with decisions.

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.

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.

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

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.

Clarissa Simmens
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. The Way Of One Gypsy, a barely fictionalized memoir, contains the entire Drom Ek Romani, my personal path, and other information about O Jakhalo, the evil eye (CURSES RETURN! NEVER CURSE ANYONE!), and the importance of good nutrition in helping us to fight the sometimes difficult hike on our path. The Gypsy's Book is mainly for Young Adults—or maybe Aging Hippies--and I hope that anyone reading it will come away with a bit of knowledge about the modern Gypsy and the importance of tolerance and love. Drab Lil, A Gypsy's Medicine Book, is a treatise on my philosophy of life: help others when possible. It is a non-fiction account of what commonly is known as a book of shadows. I'm married and live in Florida. My two sons and granddaughter live in Pennsylvania.

Description:

In a small row home, in 1956 South Philly, down in a dirt floor cellar, a drabarni grandmother picks up pieces of wood chips discarded on her husband's worktable. Using a carpenter's pencil she sketches a circle with spokes and hands it to her eight-year-old granddaughter. “Ashok Chakra, Wheel of Origin,” she says. “This is the first step on your path. One day there will be twenty-two of them...”

This book is one Romani's (Gypsy) grimoire, a family compendium about moving along our path in life with a minimum amount of stress. It is not meant to be a guide but it is a slice of life that I hope you will learn from and enjoy.

Drab, in Romanes, means herb and fortune telling. A drabarni is one who can heal with herbs and advise by using cards, tea leaves, dreams and the lines on the palm of the hand. Let's change the word fortune telling because no future is engraved into gold and our past will determine our actions for the future. It is more a holistic way of looking at another's life and prescribing—through the use of herbs and advice—how to cope.

 

When I was about eight, my grandmother drew symbols on small pieces of wood that I have reproduced. She gave me the first five and instructed me to observe life as I grew older and add my own. They could be altered but she hoped I would not commit them to paper (or wood) until I was sure. Although I've been enamored of the tarot most of my life, I discovered that in my mid fifties, the markers and pens found their way to the blank cards I bought and my Drom Ek Romani (the way or path of one Gypsy) was completed, all 22 of them.

 

The main philosophy of my medicine book is written in 22 chapters, each one with the title of the 22 cards, or disks of the Drom Ek Romani. I have tried to show how life often follows each little path as we spiral through it.

 

Also included is information about o jakhalo (the evil eye) and some basic curatives made mainly from kitchen herbs. However, this is not a “how-to” book. We Gypsies traveled, did not have a homeland, and were unable or unwilling to put down roots. So everything was kept simple. I still make dinners where I put the pot of goulash or soup on the table with bowls and spoons and tell all to help themselves, including going into my refrigerator for anything needed. This is my metaphor for not spoon-feeding you. With internet sources and overloads of information, it is almost like I am saying, “Help yourself. Here's the pot of soup, you do the rest. My sustenance is your sustenance and I'm here to start you on your own personal path...”

Fernando Sobenes
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.

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.

About the Author:

When Susan Moore Jordan was a high school student in the mid nineteen-fifties in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, a close friend went through a shattering event just as she was preparing to audition for the high school’s annual musical. Decades later Jordan used that experience of tragedy to triumph to write her first novel, How I Grew Up, in 2013. Two additional novels followed: Eli’s Heart in 2014 and You Are My Song in 2015, completing “The Carousel Trilogy.” A fourth novel, Jamie’s Children, was released in July, 2016.

Memories of Jake, the first book in a two-part series set during the Vietnam War era, was released in March, 2017, followed by Man with No Yesterdays in November, 2017. All of Jordan's novels are drawn from her life experiences as a voice teacher and stage director and are inspired by real people she has encountered.

Jordan attended the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati and moved to the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania in 1971 with her late husband and three young children, where she established a private voice studio in 1979. Her students have gone on to leading schools of music and opera or musical theater companies around the world. 
Beginning in 1984, Jordan directed some eighty local community and high school musical theater productions. She retired from directing in 2015 after over thirty years and wrote about her adventures in “More Fog, Please”: Thirty-One Years Directing Community and High School Musicals, released in November, 2015.

 
All of her books are available on Amazon in paperback, and the novels are also available as Kindle editions. Paperback copies of Jordan’s books can be purchased locally at the Pocono Cinema and Community Center in East Stroudsburg whenever the theater is open.

Description:

"I was born somewhere over the South China Sea in a military transport plane ..."

Jake Cameron is facing the struggle of his life. A helicopter crash in Vietnam leaves Jake with total amnesia, and the young Green Beret returns home to a family he doesn't know and a life he can't remember.

Unable to be the son and brother his family has lost, Jake sets out to learn whatever he can about the man he was. When he uncovers a dark family secret, he decides to protect the people he loves by disappearing.

Susan Moore Jordan's new historical novel, MAN WITH NO YESTERDAYS, follows Jake on his journey as he fights to find himself ... a journey that takes him into his past, connects him with other Vietnam veterans, and eventually leads him to situations, places, and a love he would never have dreamed possible.

Author:
David R. Koff
About the Author:

Threat is my first novel, Book One of The Barren Spheres Trilogy. It's science fantasy with an environmental and political thriller component. The scale is small, the scope large. The main characters live below our feet, in a world thrown out of balance by inexplicable changes in access to resources, nutrition and living space. They may have ten legs and eight eyes but that does not stop them from engaging in Machiavellian schemes to exploit the riches of neighboring spheres, or mounting diplomatic initiatives to forestall war and bring peace.

My background as an Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker focusing on human rights and social justice issues definitely influenced the story of Threat. Without being fully conscious of it, countless moments from my experiences making films in many parts of the world found their way -- transformed of course -- into the story of Threat. For example, I once spent weeks in holed up in a delapidated hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, working with the man who led the 1964 revolution in Zanzibar, Field Marshal John Okello on his memoir. Palace intrigues, clandestine operations, ideological purity, and armed force all played a part in his story and, many years later, informed my own understanding of how the Hyavvi and the Lo-Ans, the principal groups of "Liviings" in Threat, would act in the midst of a conflict over wealth and resources. Similarly, my years of working with one of the leading trade unions in North America, UNITE HERE, helped me understand how the characters in Threat would go about implementing strategies, mobilizing their followers, and responding to serious challenges to their health and well-being.

I'd say that anyone who likes a good political thriller, set in a world that co-exists with ours, but with all the elements of speculative fiction and fantasy, will find Threat an unusual read, both entertaining and thought-provoking.

 

Description:

The declaration of war was delivered just before darkfall.

Prepare to be invaded.

Winkon’s breath caught in his throatstem at the document’s audacity.

Our food sources are disappearing.

And ours are not? thought Winkon.

Our offspring shrivel from lack of nourishment.

Yes, and ours also. How will sending the parents of your offspring into another Sphere, ours, to die while killing the parents of our offspring—address the Threat?

 If you wish to capitulate in advance….

This time it wasn’t a thought, but a response, reverberating through Winkon’s whole being. Never. Never. Never.

*  *  *

An eight-eyed Hitler. A ten-legged espionage agent. A carapaced Queen. An intelligence-gathering avian courier service. A resistance fighter able to blur herself into invisibility. Sibling  survivors of The Mist.

These vibrant, dimensional characters and many more come together, and burst apart, in Threat. It’s a war of the worlds, in a time of diminishing resources, incomprehensible plagues, apocalyptic catastrophes, and tremors of extinction. Is it our world? Yes; no. Threat is familiar, casting a storyteller’s timeless, irresistible net (courage, betrayal; humor, fear, hope; a hostile, take-no-prisoners political climate and a desperate diplomatic search for peace).

Yet Threat is startlingly new. The ground it breaks is right below our feet, where the main characters reside. There, on a fine, thin thread already fraying, the future hangs in the balance. Must it be the terrifying one, whose limits are already in evidence? Or is there another, more hopeful possibility?

In  350 pages, Threat shows us the biggest picture there is, writ deep and small, microscopically so. With elements of science-fantasy, speculative fiction and political thriller, filled with brilliant characters, and non-stop, cliff-hanger action, told in language reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange’s inventiveness, Threat will provoke, satisfy, and enthrall readers.

About the Author:

I wrote this book in high hopes of helping others who may suffer from the same emotional devistation that I had in losing my hair.  Doctors were of no help and felt I HAD to do something.  Friends were making comments and one even told me I was going to have to go get a wig soon. I was embarresed to go out in public and felt so self conscious.  I was desperate! I did countless hours of research and put together a lot of valuable information. What did I get in return for all of that? A FABULOUS thick head of beautiful hair. Hair that I get cut once every 3 weeks because it grows so fast! Never again will I take that for granted.  If you are experiencing hair loss this book can turn your life around.

RG Williams lives on the beautiful western slope of CO with her husband, 2 dogs, 2 cats, an old cow horse and a slightly demanding burro named Poncho (who if does not get his grain before sundown will remind her about it at approximately midnight.) :(

 

Description:

This book is filled with tons of valuable information to not only stop your hair from falling out but to start re-growing a GREAT new head of hair,"naturally of course."  

You will also learn how taking some very inexpensive things internally and making a couple of easy changes can make your whole body not only function better but potentialy age slower.  And yes, there is also some humor (even though losing your hair is anything BUT funny.)

Are you ready to get educated and get started on a beautiful new head of hair?

You will feel more confident, be happier and look "sexy" with your new head of beautiful hair!

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.

Introducing a new, modern day action hero, Paul Stanton, SAS

When the IRA mount a blitzkrieg attack on one of his operational bases and kill his men, Major Paul Stanton knows his security has been compromised.  But proving it and then finding those responsible is another matter.

Description:

Jay and his girl friend Tommie are Cinematic Art majors at USCLA, where they differ from other students because of their old fashioned morals, which requires marriage before sex. Jay inherits some money, and an Uncle who had never before visited him shows up. He is in the business of making porno films, and he fakes illness in order to drag Jay into his production. Tommie is furious, but Jay insists he must continue, so she joins the cast in order to be able to keep trying to disentangle him.

The camera man seems to be just an ordinary technician, but his agile and mischevious  brain sets every thing in motion. Others in the cast are four old time strippers, several coeds, the anatomically-gifted leading man, a European director with twelve eighteen year-old daughters, a  fabulous beauty, a suspicious police Captain, and a Mafia Don. Does Tommie remain a virgin? Does Jay repent? It's a fun read to find out.

Michael Patrick Clark
About the Author:

Michael Patrick Clark was born on The Fourth of July 1950.



He spent the first few years of his life in an orphanage, before adoption brought a new home and a change of name.



Unhappy at home, Michael joined the armed forces as a boy apprentice. He trained in telecommunications, and subsequently transferred to a specialist mobile-communications unit.



Over the ensuing years he travelled the world; living and working in environments as exotic, hostile, and diverse as the Libyan Desert, Europe, the Australian outback, South-East Asia, and Central and South America.



In the late seventies Michael moved into the high-tech industry. He worked predominantly on international consultancy, for U.S. based communications and computer manufacturers, but after twenty-five years in the industry, made the life-changing decision to move to Spain, with his wife Pamela, and write novels.



Since then he has completed the first and last parts of The Etzel Trilogy, The Folks at Fifty-Eight being the first. He has also written Flying with Cuckoos, an amusing and heart-warming account of his tortuous journey from the orphanage to Special Forces: due for publication later this year.

 

Description:

Flying with Cuckoos tells the true story of a journey of discovery, as a young and naïve Michael Clark leaves a desperately-unhappy adopted home, to join the armed forces, as a ‘boy apprentice’ before transferring into one of the most ill-disciplined and disreputable units in the British armed forces.

 

As the story unfolds, we follow his progress; from one-sided battles with school bullies in suburban England, to even-more one-sided battles with the S.A.S. in some of the world’s most dangerous and exotic places; from the jungles of South-East Asia, and the bullet-scarred shacks of Gaddafi’s ‘new’ Libya, through the tragedy of the war in Vietnam, and the hedonistic excess of swinging-sixties Bangkok and Singapore.

 

Funny, poignant, and at times outrageous, Flying with Cuckoos is a heart-warming story of hope and achievement, and the remarkable journal of a young man’s battle to survive and overcome.

About the Author:

Tom Nagel is an internationally recognized instructor and clinician. He has conducted clinics and trainings, given lectures, and done presentations throughout the United States and in Europe. Tom was the main speaker at the 10th Annual International Centered Riding Symposium in Brattleboro, Vermont. He was a keynote speaker at the 2007 Certified Horsemanship Association International Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Tom's training background lies outside of horseback riding and his main expertise is in the basic biomechanics of how human bodies work. He has a third degree black belt in Aikido and is an advanced practitioner of Zen Bodytherapy, a bodywork discipline that combines deep tissue and alignment work. Tom started his Zen training in 1977 and became a certified Zen meditation instructor in 1986. This background gives him a unique perspective in how to help riders use their bodies efficiently first off and then on their horses.

Description:

Zen & Horseback Riding explains the location, importance and use of the psoas muscles. The psoas are the deep core muscles that link the upper and lower girdles of the body. They are the basis of all efficient body movement and can be used by participants in any athletic activity.

This book explains how to correctly use your body to obtain tone (strength with flexibility), self-carriage (stability and lift) and movement (vertically bilateral in rhythm) both on and off the horse. Zen & Horseback Riding is about using horseback riding as a means of self-development and training. It is about improving both your riding and your life.

All they had against them was a deadly and normally incurable communicable disease, one career full of deep secrets, another career struggling to get known and accepted, an ancient culture versus a modern culture, and half a world of distance; yet they could not just forget each other.  It would take time. 

A romance from the male perspective written with humor and respect for the complexity of mature adult romantic relationships.

Steven London
About the Author:

I spent the better part of my life listening to the stories of the last three generations.  It was more than just luck that I had the opportunity to hear first hand of these tales. Older people talk about their lives not so much that the young ear will understand.  It gives them a chance to relive their lives and remember how they reached a particular point in their lives.

From this vantage point, I write.  I memorized their stories, not in just the words spoken, but of the meaning behind the words.  I don't know if the relatives who poured out their lives to a young child would be happy or angry in that I have taken their stories to heart.  Maybe they would be surprised that someone actual listened and understood them.

As in this novel, TRUST, or the characters in upcoming books, ask and have answered is an intrinsic question.  A question that we as humans ask ourselves near the end of our days, "Was i loved? Was I truly loved for myself?"  How do you answer that question for yourself today?

Description:

 

This novel tells a tale of New York City about one of the last centuries noteable characters.

Mrs. Helen London: it was a title she never rightfully earned.  She lived a charmed and equally tragic life.  As an irrefutable New York beauty of her generation, she was desired by many but only a few held. Mrs. Helen London was a woman from a questionable background who after a sensational trial became a woman of wealth at the height of the Great Depression.

The novel chronicles her as lies, loves and death follow her.  It is an amazing tale of an amazing woman.  Although the time period is the early twentieth century, the themes resonate as current as today.  Only technology and fashion change, people remain the same.  Equally intriguing is the fact that Helen London was my great aunt.

Chris Eboch
About the Author:

Chris Eboch writes fiction and nonfiction for all ages, with 20 traditionally published books for children. Her novels for ages nine and up include The Genie’s Gift, a middle eastern fantasy, The Eyes of Pharaoh, a mystery in ancient Egypt; The Well of Sacrifice, a Mayan adventure; and the Haunted series, which starts with The Ghost on the Stairs. 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. 

Description:

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?
