Heather Abraham
About the Author:
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

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. 

 

MY ANGRY SON is now available as a Kindle book. I hope it will offer help and encouragement to parents and--yes--to sons and daughters as well. Click here. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=My+Angry+Son+by+Barbara+Bartocci

Well- written, dealing with strong feelings of anger and depression--the healthy resolution of which is its theme.” Dr. Charles Blewitt, Best Sellers

 

“A realistic, touching story that [shows] the difficult work necessary to free child and family from old behavior patterns. ..inspiring and helpful to parents...

Patrick Brady
About the Author:

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.

Description:

“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.

His love of music expresses itself in many forms, metal, rock, flamenco and Cretan traditional music, he plays guitar and the Cretan mandóla. His studies and work as an eco-tour guide support his appreciation of the importance of authentic, local tourism and that is why he is passionate about sharing the real Crete in the Trip Ideas books and on his website ‘We Love Crete’, with his brother, Apostolis.

Katia Luz - a traveller since a young age, her love of Crete, as well as a passion to share the unique culture, from such a warm-hearted people and the rugged, rough and fiercely independent character of the land itself, drew her to write the ‘We Love Crete’ website and the Trip Ideas books with her co-authors, Apostolis and Anastasios.

Description:

Crete Greece - Trip ideas - Five Days in the West of Crete by Car or Motorcycle

Independent Travel - taking some time and a car will mean you can explore the ruggedly beautiful interior of the island of Crete as well as visit some exquisite beaches.

Visit Crete - take a back roads journey through the island. This book helps you discover the real Crete - archaeological sites, wine tastings, organic tavernas, hidden valleys and other gems in the west of Crete. Get behind the scenes.

Anastasi, Apostoli and Katia of We Love Crete have put together their favourite places in the west of the island to give you a varied and interesting itinerary to follow. Or adapt for yourself.

Inside

  • Learn the secrets of the Minoans at the Knossos Palace
  • Drive through the country, visit wineries, take wine tastings, and visit the local tavernas
  • Get off the beaten track in the foothills of Psiloritis and experience the hidden Amari Valley
  • Have easy access to the route with our live-link map and clickable website addresses
  • Discover the history of Crete and a story of rebellion at the Arkadi Monastery
  • Packed with tips for accommodation that will save you Euros and add enjoyment to your travels

Everyone knows Crete as a beach destination, and that an average of 300 days of sunshine a year mean more chances of bliss on the sand. But as an independent visitor, who wants to do more than just lie on the beach, it can be difficult to plan a great route without knowledge of the island.

First, there's the language barrier, which can make it difficult to ask directions on back roads, how do you know what sights and villages you should be looking for? And, what is the difference between a Minoan, a Cretan and a Chaniot?

With the Five Days in the West of Crete, you won't miss the any of the historic sites, interesting towns and beautiful beaches. This route will show you the wine and food in Crete, for everyday eating and everyday pleasure. The stunning mountains and valleys of Crete will be at your fingertips.

Trip Ideas - A Route Behind the Scenes

  • Experience mountain hospitality and organic local food at Taverna Vegera in Zaros
  • Enjoy the fruit trees, vineyards and green slopes of the Amari Valley
  • Relish in the tiny laneways and atmosphere of the Old Town of Rethymnon
  • See the inland lake of Kournas and the tiny church on the rocks at Georgioupolis
  • Use our accommodation tips in the Old Town of Chania
  • Rugged Gorges! Unexplored mountains and gorges of the west of Crete
  • Best of all, the mysterious and untouched beach of Elafonisi

eBook Features

  • We've suggested an itinerary, and given accommodation suggestions, different options for various routes along the way, and variations. There are plenty of information links within the book.
  • Five days is not a lot of time to spend in Crete. Ideally you need a lot longer. With this guide, you will be able to make the most of your time in Crete.
  • With the live-link map, you'll be able to link directly to the map from the eBook and use the map to plan your days and plot your routes in Crete.
  • Save money by knowing your plans in advance and pre-booking your accommodation
  • The guide includes Greek names in Greek writing for easy recognition of road signs
  • Take less time reading the map and more time chatting to the locals
  • Ease the worry of ‘where will we sleep tonight?’ and enjoy more time relaxing at the taverna
  • Have the suggested itinerary for the west of Crete and maps with you in one handy package

What This Book Is Not

This book is not a fully detailed Crete travel guide - this does not have detailed instructions “Turn left, turn right, take the second road after the goat shed”. This is a route suggestion for independent, curious travellers who know how to read a map. There are plenty of excellent travel guide books available. We wrote this book in response to our readers, who often asked; “How do I plan my trip for five days in Crete”? This suggested pathway, with different options, will help you travel Crete on the back roads.

About the Authors: Written and researched by We Love Crete; Apostolis Heretis-Hadoulis, Anastasios Hadoulis and Katia Luz.

About We Love Crete - a website sharing our love of Crete and Greece - this is a family creation. We are Anastasi and Apostoli, brothers whose mother was born in Crete, and we love to share Kriti and her spirit with you. The real Crete, beyond the beach, the rustic, authentic island, brimming with her own fiercely independent character and culture, home of local people with hearts of gold. Ela, come, Kriti and her charms await.

About the Author:

I love all kinds of books, and enjoy writing in many genres. So far, I've published two books, one about modern vampires, and one a medieval fantasy. I love a good sword-swinging adventure, and, if it's funny, so much the better. A deep love of Terry Pratchett style comedy inspired Misadventures in the Art of Chivalry, at least to some extent. A sequel will probably be forthcoming, but my whims may take me somewhere else first.

Description:

Princess Calanthe's extraordinarily boring life has just taken a very interesting turn. Two out-of-work knights have kidnapped her as part of a brilliant money-making scheme. Only thing is, her kingdom is flat broke.

Her worried parents reluctantly enlist the help of her brother Kendrick to rescue her. But Calanthe doesn't want to go home. Their plans ruined, the little band needs a new source of income. Plan number one: rob a dragon.

As if they didn't have enough problems, Calanthe is being pursued by a Prince that she refused to marry. In the midst of it all, Calanthe must decide what matters most, and the lengths she will go to defend it.

Finding a dead body changes a person.

22-year-old Audra Needham is back in her small New Mexico hometown. She just wants to fit in, work hard, and help her younger brother. Going for a walk in the woods with her former crush, Jay, seems like a harmless distraction.

Until they stumble on a body.

Jay, who has secrets of his own to protect, insists they walk away and keep quiet. But Audra can't simply forget what she's seen. The woman deserves to be found, and her story deserves to be told.

More than one person isn't happy about Audra bringing a crime to life. The dead woman was murdered, and Audra could be next on the vengeful killer's list. She’ll have to stand up for herself in order to stand up for the murder victim. It’s a risk, and so is reaching out to the mysterious young man who works with deadly birds of prey. With her 12-year-old brother determined to play detective, and romance budding in the last place she expected, Audra learns that some risks are worth taking – no matter the danger, to her body or her heart.

 

“Another action-packed suspense novel by Kris Bock, perhaps her best to-date. The author weaves an intriguing tale with appealing characters. Watching Audra, the main character, evolve into an emotionally-mature and independent young woman is gratifying.” Ellen Rippel

What kind of mother abandons her children? Donna George couldn't imagine, until heroin and opiates became more important to her than life itself.

No other program had worked ... but maybe, just maybe, tough-love counselors and a handful of colorful characters could help her find the way through the madness and back to her daughters and her better self. An intimate, gritty memoir about addiction and recovery.

A bestseller on Amazon in Substance Abuse, Recovery, and Drug Dependency. 5.0 out of 22 Amazon reviews. Described as "Honest and raw." "A story that needed to be told." "Gritty realism." "A story of redemption." "Intense and moving story of recovery."

Illuminating The Darkness
A straight forward and effective solution to the problems of depression, stress, and anxiety.

Are You Ready For A Change?

Every day there are new approaches and drugs to help people overcome the emotional pain of depression, stress, and anxiety. More people are being treated for these than ever before. So, one would presume emotional health and happiness would be at an all-time high. But you know that isn’t the case, not even close. In fact, the only thing that seems to be gaining prevalence faster than antidepressants is depression itself!

Is there a way of escape? Is there a different approach from the failed strategies most often presented in self-help books and the doctor’s office? Is there hope for me? Can I live a life of real peace and joy?

Yes. Lasting joy and peace can be yours!

This is no idle promise from some new-fangled philosophy or rediscovered ancient herb. This truth has the authority of the Bible, the simplicity of fruit on a vine, and the track-record of many generations who have discovered the real source of mental and emotional health.

This is not another strategy to try, rather it is the genuine truth about why people suffer from depression, stress, and anxiety, and how those pains can be replaced with joy, peace, and patience.

The truths presented here are…

  • Easy to understand
  • Practical in their everyday application
  • Powerfully effective in both the short and long term 
  • Proven


This book is both a challenge to everything you have heard about the cause and cure of emotional distress, and a real offer of hope. Learn here what thousands of others have learned and, enjoy an enduring harvest of the fruit of real joy.

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.

Michael Patrick Clark
About the Author:

 

Author of The Folks at Fifty-Eight, 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 In July 2012.

 

Description:

The Folks at Fifty-Eight is the first part in The Etzel Trilogy, a saga of espionage and conspiracy that views the Cold War from three viewpoints, three periods, and three locations. 1946 Washington D.C., 1952 Moscow, and 1957 London.

The Folks at Fifty-Eight kicks off the trilogy with the view from a 1946 Washington D.C. It is a Faustian tale of espionage and conspiracy that uses the disarray of Western Intelligence, the theft of atomic secrets from Los Alamos, and the adoption of dormant German spy networks, by members of the New York based Council on Foreign Relations, as factual backcloth.

The fictitious thread is provided by Gerald Hammond, a washed-up former OSS agent, and his preoccupation with a stunning young German woman. He is the exception to the rule; an incorruptible spy, whose lofty principles have brought him nothing but mediocrity and obscurity. She is the murderous and provocative daughter of a former spymaster; a femme fatale to compromise the principled man.

Description:

In this groundbreaking historical short story, David Joseph brings to light one of the most shameful incidents in American history—“The Bellingham Riots” that, as the papers read, “wiped the Punjabi off the map.” The story reveals the plight of Sikh and Japanese in the U.S. who fought discrimination and established a proud legacy in the history of a country that is truly a “melting pot.” The story opens up with a fifteen-year-old boy and a young Japanese couple that flee Bellingham to escape the violence. “Punjabi” is a signature David Joseph story that begins with tragedy and ends with the reader in tears of joy. Using notes from a conversation with an elderly Punjabi man, David Joseph met in a café in West Virginia, and notes from interviewing elderly Japanese, David Joseph considers it an obligation to the Sikh and Japanese to write this story.
