Jesse A. Mayfield
About the Author:

Hi, my name is Jesse A. Mayfield and I'm an actor, singer, writer and teacher. I've appeared on Broadway, on the Lincoln Center stage and at the Kennedy Center and in many concert venues around the world. As the former Artistic Director of the famed "Paul Robeson Theater" in New York, I produced and starred in many notable productions, among them, "A Raisin in the Sun," "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men" and "Of Mice and Men." I've spent much of the last decade touring in various stage productions. Always a New Yorker at heart, I presently reside in Los Angeles where I teach acting. I recently launched Greedy Reedy Productions to develop projects for television and film and my company, Lamarr Talent & Literary Management represents and guides the careers of young, aspiring entertainment professionals. 

My touching memoir titled "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story," chronicles my early years growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the Civil Rights era. It tells of me being one of the first African-Americans bused to a White school when New York City started busing for school integration. My years in predominately White, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn were both character building and life changing and laid the foundation for my becoming the man I am today. This story is told through the eyes of a precocious and intelligent little boy and it's told with humor and love.

It is my sincerest hope that while reading this book you will get a strong sense of the love I had for my family, my community and the new world of friendships that embraced me. Being "away from my mother's watchful eye" offered me a new-found freedom but it also demanded that I grow up quickly, keep my wits about me and utilize everything I'd ever learned. This is a "nostalgic" and "feel good" story that will take you on a journey through a crazy time in our nation's history and make you laugh, cry, think and then laugh some more.

Enjoy!

Description:

"Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye...a coming of age story" is a memoir that tells about the author, Jesse A. Mayfield, growing up in Brooklyn, New York during the turbulent, dangerous and racially charged 1960s. When the New York City Board of Education implemented busing to further integrate New York public schools, Jesse was one of the first African-Americans bused from the inner-city to a White school in lily-White Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn in the Fall of 1965. Since all young Blacks were expected to be militant and "down with the revolution," Jesse was viewed as being a "traitor," "Uncle Tom" and "house nigger" for going to school with "Whitey." Surprisingly, he found peace, friendship and acceptance in the most unlikely of places; the White community he'd been warned to view with fear and distrust.

This entertaining, uplifting and inspiring story will take you on a magical and nostalgic journey to an exciting time gone by and you'll relive history as you revisit President Kennedy's election and assassination, the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, President Lyndon B. Johnson, the Vietnam War and the healing effects of the Beatles' music on a post-assassination America.

Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is a not the usual unfortunate and sad story about busing that we've all heard but instead, it's an inspiring story of one boys journey as he navigates between two distinct worlds forging friendships, excelling and forming a unique perception of the world. As one reviewer so aptly put it, "Away From My Mother's Watchful Eye is the epitome of all coming of age stories."

About the Author:

Candida Andriole
About the Author:

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.

 

Description:

 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.

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.

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 have been in the music industry for the past 30 years. I was lucky to have started in the old system where if you wanted to be a music producer you did an apprenticeship in a recording studio shadowing producers and learnt as you went along. If you were lucky you got to observe some of the greats of music and production create materpieces that stood the test of time. I was extremely lucky!

My career has taken me from Ireland, the UK, around Europe, USA and to Australia. I have met and collaborated with some of the greats in music production and artists. Some of the ones I am most proud of are U2, Def Leppard (Hysteria album, Depeche Mode (Violator Album), Black Sabbath, Yes and many more. Since 2002 I have been a tutor at BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) and have developed a real passion for music education, especially as the opportunities that I had are not their any more.

I think it is really important to share knowledge and the digital age makes that possible so much easier than before. This first installment is based on a series of questions that I regularly get asked by students.

Description:

This book is short, deliberately. In this digital age I think people want authors (of non-fiction anyway) to get to the point and tell them what they need to know quickly. It may be short but I believe it is rich in concepts that used correctly can accelerate someone's progress to becoming a great music producer.

It was written because I have searched but never found a guide to Music Production that gives the reader an insight to what is actually important. Most Music Production courses, magazines and books focus on the use of equipment like software packages and microphone placement. These are extremely useful but they are a guide on how to use the TOOLS not what music production is really about. It's a bit like telling an artist about the different brushes they can use for different situations and them expecting them to be the next Monet or Picasso!

When I first started as a runner in a studio almost 30 years ago, I was sat down by the Chief Engineer and told that the most vital thing to understand and remember is that music production is 95% psychology and 5% technology. In my view too much of the material out there focuses on the 5% technology so I want to redress the balance in a small way.

I intend this small book to be the first in a series so my hope is that readers will give constructive feedback with requests for other areas that they would like covered in the future. Until then good luck!

People aren’t what they appear to be; situations are not what they seem. Desperate, she fights back. As she unearths the truth, she finds that the key to the mystery lies in her painting. Soon things come to a head, and there are more casualties, including Cecilia who almost pays the ultimate price—her life.

A.K. Hartline was born in the small town of Jasper, Tennessee, one of five children raised in a solid, loving family. He had a voracious appetite for reading, and very early began to put pen to paper, writing his imaginations. After many years writing songs and poems, he turned his mind and energies to novels. He and his family reside in Hixson, Tennessee, and he enjoys, among other things, gardening, cooking, music and art.

Description:
“For he will put his angels in charge of you, to guard you in all your ways,” his mother finished. She closed the book and smiled down at Heath; teacher and student, mother and son, the only two in the classroom of a small and dying church.
“Mom, do I really have a guardian angel?” he asked. “One for me, just for me?” His little face shone with inquiry and wonder. She placed a hand on his arm, and looked into the boy’s eyes.
“Yes, my son, you do.”

“Wings” is a sweeping tale of the tempting power of darkness and the redeeming force of light; the story of a boy turned man on life’s twisting road, where he encounters evil creatures from the vampire world, and faces hard choices with profound consequences.

Paul Murphy
About the Author:

Paul Murphy is a retired educator. The father of three grown children he recently moved to Southport with his wife, Shirley.

He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. He then obtained his Masters in Education from Bowling Green State University in 1970.

Paul possesses more than thirty years experience in public education as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, culminating with sixteen years as superintendent of schools in several communities.

After he retired, Paul’s first task was to write the Christian fiction novel, The 13th Apostle, published by Evergreen Press. He is also the author of two murder mysteries, Time in the Mirror and Golden Rule Days.

He is a twenty-five year member of Rotary International. Paul has served in various capacities in two Lutheran churches. His love of Jesus prompted his writing The 13th Apostle and its sequel, Angel Assignment: The White House.

Description:

An accidental stumble by a Secret Service agent leaves the country’s leaders exposed for a split second. A shot rings out: an instant later, the Vice President of the United States is dead, and the First Lady is mysteriously wounded. While a shaken President sits beside his injured wife considering resignation, the fiend behind the assassination attempt ramps up a smear campaign calculated to initiate impeachment, and orders his henchmen to scare off—kill, if necessary—a troublesome reporter determined to report only the facts. Still not satisfied, the evil-doer funds Al-Qaeda in a conspiracy to bring both America and its President to their knees. The terrorist attacks are executed with near-perfect precision: as an airplane spews a deadly new strain of anthrax over a crowd of over 100,000 unsuspecting football fans, Al-Qaeda members gun down random individuals at other nationally recognized gridiron venues.

            The enemy’s scheme is working: the President trusts no one except family and Secret Service agents. As rumors and death swirl about the nation’s leader, the pressure to apprehend the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and name a new vice-president becomes almost unbearable. Prayer brings the President little comfort, for his faith has waned over the years, and he no longer believes in his religious heritage. As he flies off to a secret retreat, the President recalls his father’s and grandfather’s tales of “the thirteenth apostle” and the letters Gamaliel supposedly wrote, and rejects them once again as make-believe. But God has a revelation in store for him, and what he learns will be instrumental in his fight against his evil adversary.

            “Paul Murphy is a wonderful story teller. His work in Angel Assignment: The White House grabs you and keeps you until the very end. This is not just a page turner…it’s a page burner. Start it today and you are likely to be up all night and you will be glad for the experience.” Dr. Mark Cress, Founder, Corporate Chaplains of America, Inc.

Finally, a suspense thriller the whole family can enjoy and talk about. A book for all ages, Angel Assignment: The White House, is a modern day novel featuring the president as the good guy, and a bunch of bad guys to fill out the roster. A good story to talk about with family and students. A great, what if. Susan Warren Books 'n Stuff

Nick Stephenson
About the Author:

Nick Stephenson was born and raised in Cambridgeshire, England and will now refer to himself in the first person. My approach to writing is to hit hard, hit fast, and leave as few spelling errors as possible. I write thrillers, suspense novels, and the occasional witty postcard, all of which are designed to get your pulse pounding. Don't let my headshot fool you - I'm actually full colour, on most days.

My books are a mixture of mystery, action, and humour. If you're looking for a good place to start, take a look at my Leopold Blake series of thrillers, available now.

Description:

 

Swift. Silent. Deadly.

Leopold Blake, expert criminology consultant for the FBI, had his weekend all planned out - and it didn't involve dealing with a murdered senator, a high-profile kidnapping, and at least three near-death experiences. Three politicians have been murdered in as many weeks, all expertly dispatched, and only Leopold can get to the bottom of it. Unfortunately, as all hell breaks loose on the streets of New York City, he soon finds himself the next target of a powerful enemy who wants him silenced. Permanently.

Against the backdrop of political corruption and murder, Leopold and his team must fight for their lives to uncover the truth before it's too late. Panic is the first novel in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers.

"Panic had me on the edge of my seat the whole time with its fast pace and nonstop action. A real page-turner, it leaps from crisis to crisis and never slows down, twisting all the way to its gripping conclusion." - David VanDyke, author of The Eden Plague. 

 
"Buckle up... With precise blows, Nick Stephenson creates fight scenes that had me clenching my jaw with tension. The twists and turns kept me guessing - the pace of the story cracked along toward an exciting finish." - Craig McGray, author of The Somnibus, Madeline, and This Little Piggy.

A.G. is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they've had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds.

Description:

Read THE SCOURGE (Brilliant Darkness, #1,) a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award, THE DEFIANCE (Brilliant Darkness #2 also available now), and THE FIRE SISTERS (Brilliant Darkness #3 coming fall 2015!)

Seventeen-year-old Groundling, Fennel, is Sightless. She's never been able to see her lush forest home, but she knows its secrets. She knows how the shadows shift when she passes under a canopy of trees. She knows how to hide in the cool, damp caves when the Scourge comes. She knows how devious and arrogant the Groundlings' tree-dwelling neighbors, the Lofties, can be. 

And she's always known this day would come—the day she faces the Scourge alone. 

The Sightless, like Fenn, are mysteriously protected from the Scourge, the gruesome creatures roaming the forests, reeking of festering flesh and consuming anything—and anyone—living. A Sightless Groundling must brave the Scourge and bring fresh water to the people of the forest. Today, that task becomes Fenn's. 

Fenn will have a Lofty Keeper, Peree, as her companion. Everyone knows the Lofties wouldn’t hesitate to shoot an arrow through the back of an unsuspecting Groundling like Fenn, but Peree seems different. A boy with warm, rough hands who smells like summer, he is surprisingly kind and thoughtful. Although Fenn knows his people are treacherous, she finds herself wanting to trust him. 

As their forest community teeters on the brink of war, Fenn and Peree must learn to work together to survive the Scourge and ensure their people’s survival. But when Fenn uncovers a secret that shatters her truths, she’s forced to decide who and what to protect—her people, her growing love for Peree, or the elusive dream of lasting peace in the forest. 

A tale of star-crossed lovers, strange creatures, and secretive, feuding factions, THE SCOURGE introduces readers to a rich and exciting new world where nothing is as it seems.

Description:

El Eslabón Perdido del Amor es un libro para hombres que las mujeres no pueden dejar de leer. El autor analiza los efectos de la etapa pre y pos eyaculación en la vida del hombre y la pareja. Las consecuencias de la masturbación van mucho más allá del placer momentáneo que esta causa. El hombre se transforma en un ser desconocido, con sentimientos confundidos que le hacen dudar del afecto hacia su pareja. Si esta sensación se mantiene a través del tiempo,  puede arruinar la relación con su mujer, ya que ella se convertirá en un ser degradado, mal tratado y carente de afecto. Ella le dará a él lo que está recibiendo y esta situación se convertirá en un círculo vicioso destinado al fracaso. Además, el autor traslada este concepto a otros niveles de la vida real, como la decadencia del súper amante, la violencia doméstica y la mutación del matrimonio. Estos aspectos analizados de una forma muy directa y controversial, causarán un impacto en el lector que lo hará reflexionar y posiblemente entender  que su felicidad depende de hacer sentir amada a su pareja. Este libro es la herramienta para lograr que a tu mujer le provoque hacerte feliz. A través de esta obra, la mujer podrá entender el  comportamiento a veces extraño del hombre e identificarse con múltiples situaciones descritas en este libro.

About the Author:

Writing is like breathing, if you're a writer you have to write.

I wrote my first novel when I was seven! All about a pony, a creature I wanted to own. I continued with my first publication the next year in the school magazine. After that I published poems and stories regularly in the school magazine, and went onto publish poetry mainly in my univesity journals.

Then life got in the way. Travelling to be more precise. I think I have visited, worked, or travelled around everywhere except South America and India. They are next on my list.

Now I am getting older there is more time for writing. I have lots to say, but perhaps not so many years to say them in.

 

Description:

'Blokes Muddling Through' is a collection of six short stories about men coping or not coping with their worlds.

BLURB
Suddenly you’re a fifty year old male, hitting middle age. Time to ease up, spend more time with friends and family. Retirement - dread thought - looms. The hard work’s done, the future’s secure. Or is it? And where’s the family anyway? The wife has spread her wings, works, has hobbies. The children have grown up on you, turned into strangers. Your friends have moved on. How do you make contact again? How do you sort out the changes in your life. Here are six men who tried to make sense of their middle aged lives in their own peculiar ways.
 

The stories have all been published in magazines and journals in Australia, Canada, the USA and the UK. One editor, who published most of them in the UK, called them my grumpy old men stories but it's not that the blokes are grumpy, they're just trying to cope with what the world flings at them in their own unique ways. Their ways might not be yours or mine but they are interesting to read about. Would you do as they do?

Susan Moore Jordan
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.
