A love story that will live in your memory.
My husband and I have always been a pair of do-it-yourselfers. When we got married 56 years ago it was with the understanding that he would bring home the bacon and I would fry it. With four kids under foot and only one wage, people figured we were destined for financial ruin, but as practicing Christians, we embarked on a faith journey, the aim being to have "neither poverty nor riches." (Proverbs 30:8) Achieving that goal was not without its humour nor its spiritual lessons, both of which I share in the book.
"Two Old Goats and One Good Shepherd" is a collection of humorous anecdotes with Christian applications. They are the personal experiences of the author and her husband as they were involved in building their house, gardening, cooking, camping and many of the other endeavors required to achieve simple living but abundant life.

Roger K. Miller, author also of the novels Invisible Hero and Dragon in Amber, was a newspaper writer and editor for more than thirty years. He is a freelance writer and critic whose work has appeared in numerous metropolitan newspapers and other publications. He and his wife Nancy, parents of three grown children, live in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
Two narratives intertwine in The Chenango Kid. One is the personal story of the author, Roger Miller, who grew up on Chenango Street, a main artery of the medium-sized industrial city of Binghamton, New York, in the 1950s. The second is the larger story of the 1950s. Each narrative enlarges upon the other.
Many elements make up the personal: a devastating house fire; a single mother who liked to work and to frequent taverns; a father, mystified by life; less devoted to work than to benignly stalking his son; a half-sister long unknown; a drunken and/or crazy uncle or two; a boyhood paradise in the hills of Pennsylvania; and a passion for reading and art. All in all an unconventionally conventional working-class youth.
The Chenango Kid also connects Chenango Street to the wider world of the Fifties, a vibrant, explosive decade in art, literature, music, movies, and television—making it The Decade That Never Ends. The popular culture of no other ten-year span in the century continues to exert its influence as strongly or to be revived as often as that of the 1950s.
Hi, my name is Sydney Paige McCutcheon, and I wrote the first draft of "Henry" the summer after I graduated high school.
After years of edits and sending out queries letters, I chose to go the self-publishing route believing this is the way, at least for this first book, to go. I am excited to have it published and thankful God gave me connections who told me of LiberWriter when I wanted to get a Kindle version for my book (it is also available in Paperback on Amazon.com).
The process was very easy and I would reccommend authors to use their website for creating ebooks!
The story for "Henry" I think has a different twist than common boy-meets-girl-type and I'm sure people like a change up in books from time to time. Readers meet Prue where her life changes, and follow her journey as she deals with the loss of her closest friend and sister, and also deals with her new roommate, Henry.
Henry was a natural character to see, especially for such a complicated man. At least, Henry would say he's complicated and Prue would counterback that he's not as complicated as he likes to think - or as much as he likes to make other people think. And of course this automatic interaction between them makes me smile, remembering the days of writing their conversations.
I love Prue. She's spunky, heartfelt, and says things others wish to say.
I love Henry, too. He's fantastic, and dramatic, and has emotion even when being indifferent and dry. He says things without filter, too - good or bad. Together, these two can create quite a clash - but how will it end? The truth goes both ways, and for Henry and Prue, it could separate them forever.
I hope this blurb has piqued your interest! "Henry" is a book full of joy, laughs, tears, and more.
After witnessing her sister's murder, Prue Collins is sent to a small town outside Astoria, Oregon, under the protection of the most unlikely guardian.
Rude and sarcastic, Ex-Officer Henry Clay wants nothing to do with his new roommate and doesn't mask any hard feelings, only secrets. His wheelchair gives Prue a glimpse of his tragic past and she can't fight curiosity as more clues come her way, opening her eyes to the true stranger she's been sent to live with—and possibly, meant to help save.
But the truth is like a loose string on an old shirt—you pull at it, and the entire fabric could come undone. As the trial looms closer, Prue will soon have to go back home. Will she leave well enough alone, or risk everything, even her own heart, to know the truth?

Candida Andriole was born in New York City and grew up in the suburbs in Westbury, Long Island. She attended and graduated from Westbury High School and then went on to seek a Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York in Cultural Studies. After graduation she followed her passion and studied theater and dance; acting at the HB Studio and dance at Carnegie Hall and at the Chuck Kelly Dance Studio and then joined the musical revue “A Tribute to America” as a dancer and stayed with the show until it closed.
Her interest in the world of arts and entertainment drew her to dabble in theater and film. She worked on productions at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York during summers. She had the good fortune to work with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. on his last acting role in a theater production. She later worked as an assistant on the production crews of the films Wise Guys starring Danny Devito and The Pick Up Artist with Robert Downey, Jr.
After a short lived career in arts and entertainment she decided to go back to school to study Entertainment Law at Nova University Law School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She spent her last semester of law school as an intern in the Monroe County Public Defender's Office in Key West where she worked after passing the Florida Bar exam, as an assistant public defender. Her life took a dramatic turn a year and a half later and she decided to stay in Key West and open her own practice as a criminal defense attorney. In 1996 she threw her hat into the political arena campaigning for the seat of Monroe County Public Defender. She did not win the election and the loss sent her right back to where she was most comfortable; to her passion for the arts. She is currently semi-retired, writing mystery novels, living in Key West with her cat Cleopaco.
Key West attorney Candida Andriole delivers to her readers a birds eye view into the private lives of the local residents of a tiny island in the Florida Keys. Interwoven into her writing are some of her most memorable legal adventures of her twenty something years of experiences as a practicing attorney. Her debut novel is the story of the harrowing roller coaster ride the residents and local police are forced to take and what they endure when a killer inserts himself into their calm and peaceful existence.
Zoe St Clare lawyer and professor of forensic sciences has relocated to the island to escape a gruesome past filled with murder and mayhem and the lingering memories of a brutal murderer. The island Police Chief Rolando Castaneda enlists her aid in hunting a serial killer when an horrific series of incidents threaten to put a damper on the event that brings more business to the island in one week than all the rest of the year put together and to leave the Police Chief without a job.
The year round residents and law enforcement are bracing themselves for the onslaught of tourists attending the week-long celebration when the faceless body of a bride is discovered on the beach moments before her wedding ceremony is to begin. This is only the first of a series of grizzly incidents involving an elusive and insidious killer who can’t possibly be human and do the unspeakable things that he does. The island has never experienced such horror.
Zoe faces much more than she bargained for when she becomes mired in a frightening ordeal that involves her former life in New York City. She struggles personally with the similarities between the killings on the island and the murders that have been haunting her.
In the middle of his campaign for re-election and the worst heat wave in the history of the Florida Keys, Chief Castaneda assisted by Zoe St Clare makes a desperate attempt to keep his job and to figure out if there is more than one madman on the island before the killer strikes again.
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
Pain is something Carol puts her hands on every day. With training and experience, it is sometimes obvious that the pain that troubles the person has roots deeper than the pain that presents.
Sometimes, it is quite simply a postural fault, especially as we all crunch ourselves in front of computers for hours on end, whether we are working or playing. Often the pain comes from a deeper source, such as family stories, fear over world events, personal trauma, unforgiveness and a host of negative emotions.
Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with over 2000 hours of training and thousands more in experience and learning. Her desire to help with her clients' healing probably stems from a family history of migraines, her mother's background in nursing and her father's in spiritual care.
This book is a troubleshooting guide to the body, specifically the body's pain.
It won't make you a doctor or therapist over night, but it will teach you a little about how the body perceives pain. There are many sources of pain, not all of them physical. We will look at how the mind and body are closely related and how one affects the other. We'll also look at how to affect one by using the other.
This is a book about "every day" pain, not a medical journal or self-diagnostic tool. It is easy to read, with a clear and light style that will help you discover some of the less obvious sources of pain in your daily life.
I have been a beach girl since I was little. First visiting Florida, where my grandparents had a home and many, many summers on the South Carolina Coast. When I went to college in Washington, D.C., I fell in love with the Delaware seaside town of Rehoboth beach. It’s old fashioned boardwalk and all American vibe has kept me coming back for decades, now with a husband and a teenager, who has spent almost every summer of his life there. I was married on a beach in the west African country of Benin. During my family’s many years living in Zimbabwe, we escaped to Durban or Cape Town any chance we got. Now we live in Rome and I have fallen in love with the Amalfi Coast. Luckily it is a very easy drive from Rome and we have been able to take many trips during our almost a decade living in Italy. I have spent the most time in Positano and Capri, but explore a little more of this incredible part of Italy with each trip south. When I am not enjoying time on the Amalfi Coast, I am in Rome, writing for my blog, helping others with their blogs and social media, working on my other eBook Rome for Expats and tweeting and Instagraming all the beautiful, delicious things I see.
First things first. The Amalfi Coast Travel Essentials Guide is not an exhaustive list of every single town and hotel and restaurant along the entire Amalfi Coast. Instead these are my personal insider tips and picks that I have gathered over many my trips to this bewitching part of the world to help you make the most of your trip to the Amalfi Coast.
The Amalfi Coast Travel Essentials Guide is not just hotels, restaurants and shopping secrets, I will also tell you the best way to get to the Amalfi Coast and where to park when you get there. This guide will help you find the best pizza in Positano, the best shoe store in Capri and the best pastry in Amalfi.
This guide has more than 100 entries to help you avoid tourist traps and travel delays and guide you to the very best the Amalfi Coast has to offer
It's fair to say that bicycles have dominated Patrick Brady's life for the last 25 years or so. From riding them, to making his living as a bike mechanic while going to graduate school, to writing about them for a great many publications, Patrick has devoted his career to bikes and bike culture.
Patrick launched Red Kite Prayer in 2009 as an alternative to the other cycling media sites. No less an authority on all things active than Outside Magazine named RKP the best blog in cycling. He is the recipient of a Lowell Thomas Award for his travel writing. Before that he was founder and publisher of Asphalt Magazine, an editor for Bicycle Guide and The Ride, and the highly respected blog Belgium Knee Warmers. His work has also appeared in Peloton, Bicycling, Road Bike Action, Paved and more.
“Why We Ride” is a different sort of cycling book, one that takes the cycling jones and spit-shines it so that it reflects why so many of us stick with the bike even as other elements of our lives may change. It’s a book that asks why we’re willing to get up early, to ride in the cold, the rain, even the cold rain, and somehow count that as a good time.
Within the pages are a series of essays, meditations and prose poems on what makes cycling an indispensable part of our lives, and why it is that even the briefest ride has the power to make the gloomiest day better.
Cycling isn’t just one pursuit. A love of cycling can serve as the foundation for half a dozen different hobbies. Sure, there’s the riding—let’s never forget the childlike joy that can come from a good ride. There’s the camaraderie that comes from the shared challenge of a ride. There’s also the fascination for the machine itself, a device that can be as artful as it is elegant in its simplicity. What of the myriad ways a ride can keep our heads straight? From the stress-relief of a hard ride to the contemplative quality of an easy solo ride, cycling feeds more than just cardiovascular fitness. If it was just exercise, most of us would have been gone years ago.
Most of what’s been published about cycling in book form either tells you what someone else did—biographies and surveys of the great races, or what you could do—fix-it manuals and guide books. Like a book of poetry, “Why We Ride” is a volume you won’t read just once. It’s a volume you’ll return to again and again, the sort of book you might read just before bed, one that will put the bug in your ear; as you turn out your bedside lamp you’ll be thinking, “I’m riding tomorrow; no ifs, ands or buts.”
How many books will do you that favor?
The book draws from work composed over the last six years, a period in which I produced my very best work. Much of the work has appeared previously in different publications, but if we hit our stretch goals (see below), I’ll be including some previously unpublished pieces.
I’ve wanted to bring these pieces together in book form to reflect the permanence of our love for the sport. Equipment may change, but the reasons we ride are no different today than they were when we were kids. Cycling deserves at least one volume that will stand the test of time.

More and more major champions are preparing like Olympians prepare in other sports. Have you ever wondered how they work on the different aspects of their games, or how often you should practice different elements of your game? Or, have you ever thought about how often major champions utilize video analysis and work on "swing shape" relative to ball flight, distance control, and feel drills? Similarly, have you ever wondered how many rounds major champions play between tournaments, or how often they do pre-shot routines and what they think about? These questions, and more, will be answered in Train for Golf Like an Olympian, so you can bring your "A Game" to the first tee.

Wife, mother and grandmother are her favorite titles. Most cherished is time spent with family and friends.

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.
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.

His written work has appeared in publications such as Sports Illustrated, Men’s Health and TimeOut New York. The author of the acclaimed instructional text, The Principles of Unarmed Combat, he currently serves as a monthly columnist for Black Belt Magazine. Pascal’s Wager is his first novel.
Destined for a brilliant career in academia, Pascal Silver instead decides to be a risk taker. Packing up his unfinished philosophy dissertation he moves to Las Vegas to pursue his dual goals of winning the World Series of Poker and the only slightly less daunting task of finding the meaning to existence.
Low on cash, Pascal is forced to take a part-time job at a private detective agency. Now, with his boss out of town, into his life walks the gorgeous Allegra LaPierre. She asks Pascal to find out who murdered her father, casino owner “Houston Phil” LaPierre.
Using his uncanny poker skills, Pascal can tell everyone involved with Houston Phil has something to hide, including his ex-stripper widow, his knucklehead son, Bruce, and his old business partner, Fat Johnny, who’s in debt to a local gangster. Complicating matters, Bruce LaPierre is suddenly found dead in his office and the number one suspect is Allegra. Though all the evidence points to his client’s guilt, Pascal falls back on the famous wager of faith put forth by his illustrious namesake. He chooses to have faith in Allegra, not just because he’s gone head over heels for her, but because it’s a good bet.
But when representatives of the Chicago mob show up and tell him to drop the case, Pascal has to take his greatest gamble yet. With Allegra’s life hanging in the balance, he’ll need to pull off the biggest bluff he’s ever attempted to get her back alive. Even if he does, he’s still left with the question “Who killed Phil?” a question only he is shrewd enough to answer.
