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.

Kip A. Kennedy
About the Author:

I've had a lifetime of pleasure in writing short stories. I wrote The Geode Room so that I could bring some of my favorite characters to a setting that would allow me to more fully develop their personalities and understanding of life. I'm very interested in understanding people's feelings, and learning to know more about the interconnectedness they share with others in the development of their lives. Reader input has taken this process full circle for me, providing insights into both my storyline, and the private stories of readers, too.

Description:

The Geode Room has provided me with a setting to share the wisdom I've learned throughout my life. It's a fun and interesting story that encourages readers to become deeply involved with both the characters and setting. Many readers of the first edition of this book have contacted me to share their satisfaction with having known my characters in this lengthy multigenerational perspective on their lives.

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

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.

Description:

Orphaned at birth, Rebecca’s life had been anything but easy. From run-ins with the law to being bounced from one foster home to another, trouble and misery had followed Rebecca like a shadow. But now, entering her senior year of high school, Rebecca’s life finally had a few bright spots—a kind elderly couple had taken her in, her grades were on the rise, and she’d found a best friend. Except for the vivid night terrors that continued to plague her sleep, her life was becoming rather ordinary. That is, until she met Maverick—a tall, handsome stranger who said he held a secret to her past and that he could transform her greatest fear into her greatest gift. But to uncover this secret, Rebecca would need to embroil herself in a violent feud that has raged for centuries—a vendetta that could cost her everything, including her life. Faced with a terrible choice, Rebecca must decide whether to keep her newfound sense of normalcy and the relationships with those she’d come to love or risk it all and throw her life back into chaos in order to discover what she truly is...Tainted.

Description:

Here's what it's all about:

Of all the headaches contractors have when it comes to lead generation, marketing and sales, closing prospects and generating quality referrals   - Which one is Bugging the Heck out of You?

  • You’re spending $300 or more per month on advertising & marketing to generate leads and do you want to leverage that cost to get a better return?
  • You’re closing less than 50% of your sales calls.
  • You’ve lost jobs to bozo competitors and hackers... AND you know they are not as good as you.
  • You’re cutting your price more than 40% of the time….just to be in the running to get the job.
  • You find yourself giving honest estimates to too many people each week who only want the lowest price.
  • You feel insulted when people want to haggle over price. (Because you know your price is right for a quality project or system that will last).
  • You wonder how you can respond to this question without lowering your price and still get the job? “Gee Bill we like you but do you have any give in your price?”

This book is basic blocking and tackling.

In fact, as you review and study this program you may find yourself saying: “Hey...we do that”. Chances are you probably are doing some of the things in this program.

But here’s the difference.

You either don’t do them all...or in the right order...or with the wording that we’ve developed through testing and implementation since 2002.

In this simple to implement, easy to understand, complete program you and your sales team will learn team to:

First - increase your closing rate by 10%-50% almost immediately.

 This is not hype.  This rate of increase with his client’s is common when they implement the tactics and strategies.

Second - generate more leads and better quality leads, from your current website, ads and marketing, without having to spend any more money than you’re currently spending (or planning to spend).

Just a few of these things you’ll learn:

  • Take all the guesswork out of your presentations and ensure that you can confidently overcome the most common objections
  • Know what to say before, during and after meeting with the prospect
  • Have the confidence to close any profitable opportunity
  • Simply and easily increase your closing success without learning any slick sales training techniques or closing tricks.
  • What to say... and NOT say.... when you meet the prospect
  • How to deliver the number
  • Overcoming the most common objections
  • Proper follow up - without being a pest - and knowing when it's okay to walk away.

What real contractor’s who use these strategies have to say:

“We are on track in the 1st quarter of 2014 to exceed our sales for all of 2013.  The system has been amazing.  Out of the 5 prospects we have used the system with, I signed a construction contract and another 3 have signed design agreements.”  Jacob T.

"Your programs have made it so much easier to close - in fact I raised my prices 2 months ago and haven't seen any change in closing rate. Awesome." - Dalton. Supreme Painting

Thank you Mike the book was very helpful It has motivated me to do more to service the customer rather than just try to sell a cheaper product  It’s the little things tat make a big difference Thanks again Mike, Jimmy W.

Bottom Line:

If you're a good, reliable, honest company that's dedicated to providing quality work at a fair price...

If you’re tired of the endless frustrations of  lead generation, marketing and sales, closing prospects and generating quality referrals…

If you’re ready to learn how to closing more jobs, jobs, rarely having to lower your price to get a job, and start getting great referrals from you customers, then this book is for you.

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?

Fergus Dignan
About the Author:

I am a general practitioner and have had an interest in genetics most of my working life (although I am not directly involved in the subject). I have followed developments in the subject over the years. Like most people, I suppose, I started thinking about my mortality when I hit my forties, and came to the conclusion that ageing is not purely a matter of wear and tear. I thought it very likely that somewhere in the human genome there is a gene or genes that influence ageing. Hence the book! 

Description:

The book is 'faction' i.e the plot is a work of fiction, but the substance of the novel is about genetics. I have researched the subject and taken care to get the facts right. I believe that it is therefore all accurate apart from the 'ageing gene' which is my speculation.

For anyone who might be interested in genetics but knows little about it, I believe this novel to be an interesting and stimulating introduction to the subject.

Everything about it is top notch; the fun writing style, the cat advice, the adorable illustrations, the amusingly clever names for each feline. 

--Dr. Shirley Lawrence, author of Hollywood Be Thy Name, Exploring the Supernatural, and The Secret Science of Numerology

It's a really cute book.

I gave copies to all my cat-loving friends.

I looooooooooove it!

The book is adorable.

The illustrations complement the stories very well.

A very clever idea, fun to read, and well-written. The VIVA!s fit in well and the art work is an excellent match.

I love your book, it is even better than I thought it would be.

The ending is purrrrfect!

ISABELLA MORGIA DI VICARI
About the Author:
Isabella Morgia di Vicari is first generation American born of Italian decent, with a large Italian famiglia from Calabria and Trieste Italia. Growing up in Orlando, Florida and, raised in her famiglia's restaurant businesses has taught Isabella many life lessons including the wonderful culture of food. Isabella's true teacher was her Nonna Isabella, her namesake, who lived with their famiglia her entire life. It was in her cucina, with Nonna's influence that she lived and breathed all the wonderful Italian traditions that she embraces and shares today. Isabella's invaluable training came the "old fashion way", in the famiglia's kitchen and in the many successful restaurants they owned and operated. Those traditions bring the Morgia di Vicari famiglia back to the table where it all happens for them. It is Isabella's heart's desire to "Bring the Famiglia Back to their Table" and back to their roots and traditions. Isabella has recorded several cooking segments on local television and has appeared on several PBS stations all in the hopes of having her own television show one day.
Description:
What Can I Bring? A holiday multi-cultural cookbook from an Italian point of view. Quick and easy dishes one can prepare for holiday gatherings that are healthy and flavorful. This book has a heavy family theme. The chef is Isabella Morgia di Vicari, a Central Florida caterer who co-owned a premier Italian restaurant for over 20 years in Orlando. Her passion for people, family and food resonate throughout every recipe and personal story. Here is an excerpt from her book: "As you go through these recipes you'll see that you can use them in many different ways. In other words some of the entrees can be made into appetizers and vice versa. Now here are a few tips on how to make these recipes even healthier; •Use Whole Wheat Pasta. •Reduce the amount of extra virgin olive oil. •Add wheat germ to the recipes. •Replace some of the unbleached flour with whole wheat flour or soy flour. •Add beans to the salads or more of your favorite fresh vegetables Flavorful, aromatic, healthy and satisfying is what I think we should all strive for when we bring a dish to someone's home. We want "Mangiare con Sapore" - "Food with Flavor" as my Nonna Isabella use to say! The true message I want to convey to my famiglia or friends is that I care enough to make this for you. Sure at times it's easier to buy something already prepared, a bottle of vino, candy, and flowers. There's nothing wrong with that but when we take the time to create something well thought out, especially with them in mind, we communicate something very different. That's what I want to do. That's what I want to share with you. I'm always saying that in order to impact the lives of others we need to touch them at the "heart-string level". I believe it's there and only there where we're able to impact change or stir emotion within. I apply this mindset to all I do with famiglia, friends, business associates and my clients. Yes it's all personal to me."

Jon Petruschke
About the Author:

Jon Petruschke was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He holds a BA in psychology from the Pennsylvania State University and an MSS from Bryn Mawr College's Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. Upon the completion of his graduate studies, Petruschke relocated to Portland, Maine, with his wife and two cats. Since 2002, the four of them have lived happily in the cozy, vibrant neighborhood of Munjoy Hill. Shortly after the move, Petruschke founded a Portland-based writing group that is now in its twelfth year.

His short fiction has been published in the anthologies Philly Fiction and Philly Fiction 2. In her Philadelphia Inquirer review, Susan Balee called Petruschke's story "Bragging About Annie," which appeared in Philly Fiction, a "sweet and funny tale...a wonderful story--my favorite of the lot." Petruschke's poetry has been published in such journals as Poetic Hours; Paper Wasp; Children, Churches and Daddies; 3 Cup Morning; Open Minds Quarterly; Waterways: Poetry in the Mainstream; and the anthology In Our Own Words: Generation X Poetry.

While at work on his first novel, Petruschke began a blog, Basho and Jung. The blog's subject is dream haiku: short poetry inspired by and based on the content of his nightly dreams. Initially, it was a practice to cleanse his writing mind of the long stretches of prose in his novel; however, playing with his dreams inside of a tiny poetic form lead to the development of Petruschke's first book: a collection of poetry entitled Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps. Dream Haiku was recently self-published and is available on Amazon.

When not writing, Petruschke is a clinical social worker who supervises a team that assists and supports adults with severe mental illness in the Portland community.

Description:

Dream Haiku: Poems from Nights and Naps is a selection of the author’s honest, odd, and irreverent verse. Culled from the journeys that sleep gifts us, these poems are a range of otherworldly moments. Some impossibly surreal. Others comfortingly familiar. And many of them somewhere, somehow, true -- in our whimsies, our ideals, our desires. The haiku form, and its moments of contemplation and surprise, are a perfect fit for the dream world’s startling images, pieces of conversation, and emotional residues. These are the experiences we so often forget and dismiss. Yet every night, we return to them.

Violet is trying to remember.

The pictures don’t help. She’s analyzed countless photographs of her life before the accident, but nothing in them is familiar. She still doesn’t recognize her parents or even herself. Not even her father, who has dedicated his every waking moment to her recovery, has been able to resurrect her memories.

Together, they intend to start a new life in Eligo, where no one knows who they are, or what they’ve lost. There, Violet meets David. He provides a welcome distraction from the pressure she feels at home. With him, she can be herself instead of struggling to be the girl she once was.

But when Violet suspects that her father is lying about their past, she needs David’s help to uncover the truth. What they find goes beyond her family—a secret worth killing for.

It’s too late now. Violet and David can’t turn back, and there’s only one option left.

Run.

John Deakins
About the Author:

    There is no other medium that feeds the soul and captures the imagination like a good book.  When the weight of the world presses down on each of us, or we simply need an enjoyable break from a busy and harried life, a book can transport us to places of dreams, incredible imagination, and enlghtenment. As has everyone, I have experienced many highs and lows in my life.  This is reflected in my writing by trying to be true to human experiences: love and hate, incredible joy and heart-breaking sorrow, open-mindedness, bigotry, the wonders of our natural world, the astonishing things to be learned beyond our physical senses, and the redeeming and universal qualities of "goodness". 

 I loved my years in school and eventually earned a university degree in English Education for K-12, and a second in Creative Writing. While teaching kids of all ages I was impressed by how smart, funny, creative and resilent they could be even in the toughest of curcumstances. Knowing the benefit of growing up loving to read anything and everything, I endeavored to instill the love of reading (and writing) in my own children, as well as the many students I was honored to teach. 

    I began writing before I had a whisker on my face. I have never stopped writing..whether short stories, essays, news articles, technical papers, magazine pieces, plays, a sreenplay, advertising, or simply recording my dreams in a journal.  I have done stints as a teacher, an oral storyteller, a recording engineer, a songwriter and musician, a poet, a blue collar worker, and more...all the while crafting my style, raising my huge family (and growing a huge garden to feed all those mouths). I have kept really busy...and in doing so I have never been bored...and it has given me much opportunity to keep my ear to the world and my eyes to the rythym of the hopes and dreams of people.

     I am happily married for 43 years to my high school sweetheart, the father of 7 children, and  "Papa" to my 25 grandchildren ages 22 to a few months.  There is no way (and I wouldn't have it any other way!) to not be immersed in the creative and wondrous world of children. For the last 3 years I have enjoyed being a real bearded Santa for the children of our area. I always spend time with the children and enjoy answering their Santa, Reindeer, and Elf  questions. I think I could write a book about all the interesting and funny things that I have heard the children say to me as Santa.

     I wrote the first Laser O'Hara book "The Hole In Eighth Level" for my children and grandchildren (my best and greatest critics) and have passed it on to you. I am currently working on the 2nd and 3rd of 7 books in the Laser O'Hara series, and finishing up a picture book for the little ones.  I certainly don't shy away from the complicated questions that are part of our culture and world, but believe that children should be well-rounded and given the chance to explore a bit of philosophy, religion, mythology, mystery,and universal human dramas and dilemmas.  I have not failed if I can engage the reader...and inspire a bit of thought, a smidgin of inspiration, and a good serving of entertainment.  So...

    The Laser O'Hara Series will be great reading for older children and young adults. I hope that parents will enjoy reading to their younger children the escapades of Laser and his sister Gabby, as they grow up, have fun adventures, and are challenged with everyday life and some tough decisions and incredible experiences in some not so everyday places.  

Description:

Laser O'Hara and his younger sister Gabby find themselves in a dire predicament after their family has been relocated, discovered, and then threatened because of the research of their long missing scientist father.  Luckily, through instructions his Dad has left coded and hidden for him in case of such a threat, Laser is able to build an L.D.D., a machine that makes it possible to travel inter-dimensional levels and to find and rescue their trapped father. Exciting ,sometimes scary, and even humorous events unfold when they unexpectedly pick up a couple of unplanned travelers. The greatest challenge for the kids is to stop an evil plan from collapsing all the levels and ultimately bringing about the destruction of the multiple worlds where they have learned to love and trust themselves and other wonderfully diverse beings. This book is a great triumph for illustrating the ongoing battle between good and evil...the dynamics of love and hate...and the complexities that often come with discerning the difference. You will want to continue on with Laser and Gabby as they pursue more adventures together discovering, shedding light on, and solving universal mysteries and intriguing enigma and puzzles.
