RG WILLIAMS
About the Author:

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

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

 

Description:

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

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

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

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

Rhodora M. Fitzgerald
About the Author:

I'm a housewife with an imagination that is always on the move.  I created the beginning of this book while I was working in a factory, sewing covers for theater seats.  I would 'write' in my mind while I sewed, and then put it to paper when I got home from work. An active imagination is a wonderful tool for making a long day pass quickly. 

When we choose to step into the inner realm of imagination we remove the limits placed upon us by the ‘real’ world.  The characters in Willow Crossing find out that the imagination is a powerful thing, when they use it to escape their own realities.  

Description:

This is a fun, imaginative read.  It was written with middle-graders in mind, but college students and even adults have said it's a fun read, because it forced them to use their imagination.

A.K. Hartline
About the Author:

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.

This came to fruition in 2012 with the publication of The God Franchise: A Theory of Everything. He was rapt to have The God Franchise win the Ashton Wylie Book Award 2012

He is currently publishing his first e-books, The God Franchise: Tweet by Tweet, and award-winning The God Franchise: A Theory of Everything, as well as writing his new book, Two by Two: Soul Mates, Spirituality and Sex, which takes The God Franchise into the area of personal relationships.

Home for Alan is Auckland, New Zealand.

Description:

To publicise The God Franchise: A Theory of Everything, Alan H. Dawe has been serialising the book on Twitter (@alanhdawe). Four tweets go out each day, slowly working through the book. The e-book, The God Franchise: Tweet by Tweet - Volume One, collates these tweets from March to September 2012 and provide a pithy view of the God Franchise in 140 character bites. This is a rather interesting approach to the work, and well-worth the minuscule price.

The God Franchise dares to offer refreshing answers to the big questions of life and God and the universe in a friendly, down-to-earth, thought-provoking, stimulating, entertaining yet practical way. You will clearly see why God exists, why the universe exists and most importantly, why you exist. You will get a clear understanding of the meaning of life and the Universal Laws that guide it. You will be astounded at the simplicity of the big picture, while recognising the profundity of this glimpse of the Truth. You will begin this journey of discovery in the timelessness before the universe began and will reach today, this moment in time, in a state of clarity about how to live your daily life with purpose and fulfilment.

About the Author:
Description:

Constance (Connie) Pendleton and Connor Martin, both 13 years old, are friends and classmates in the upstate New York city of Billington. In the summer of 1954 they are vaguely aware that they might want to be something more than friends, for they are also vaguely aware of their budding sexuality and the distant allure of romance.

            Connie and Connor tell their story, which encompasses details of Americans’ way of life in the 1950s, in the first person in alternating short chapters (1,500 to 2,500 words) in language appropriate to young persons of the time.

They befriend a new kid, Sidney Asher, also 13 years old, an orphan who has come from Calais, Maine, to Billington to live with his uncle, Clark Meredith, and the uncle’s new wife, Frances. Sidney is a shy, retiring boy of formal manners. Connie and Connor’s friendship helps him adjust to a new way of life in a different region of the country.

The three young persons’ happy discovery of one another is shaken, as is their world, when Connie and Connor come across a criminal plot that could severely endanger the lives of Sidney and his newfound uncle and aunt.

But Connie and Connor, like Nancy Drew joining hands with one of the Hardy Boys, become involved, at first reluctantly, then steadfastly. What ensues is a snooping about followed by a fast-paced chase, resulting in the two youngsters’ separately saving each other’s life.

Ending, of course, happily—and with a last-minute twist.

About the Author:

     In the first grade, learning The Pledge of Allegience, I asked: "What's a Republic?" In hindsight my Teacher took me to a map and explained a confederation of states, not a republic.. However, the real answer to my question took twenty six years to answer. Six of those twenty six years were spent going from library to library; huddled over age old books, amidst dusty Winter nights, and humid New England days. As I was able to read at an Adult level in the First Grade; I remember; with such joy;finding "A Biography of Deborah Sampson." The joy was due to that was the first Adult book I ever read. She among many others had impersonated a male so she could fight in the Revoltuion. This was an ancient European tradition, (without the masquerade).

      Years passed, as I traversed America, France, and India; and somewhat settled down; got married and had a beautiful Daughter. For my Daughter's sake, I began college a bit late at twenty eight years of age. So with a two month old infant I arrived at Mount Ida College, enrolled, and soon began realizing; I had brought a Classcial education with me. By the time I graduated with honors, (Who's Who and an Award in Scholarship), I was headed to Harvard. I believed this to be my last summer working in mental health. Unfortunately, in protecting a female patient from harm; I was struck down; which resulted in a spinal injury that lasted many years. I then arrived at law school; earning the nickname, "The Prosecutor," (one I was never comfortable with, but Student Loans as they are, were too large an obstacle to overcome and continue.

      However I did go on to earn my Ph.D. in Early American and European history. I went on to teach Liberal Studies and was praised for my Socratic Method. Although my favorite course to teach was Western Civilization, I taught many others: Western Civilization, Philosophy, Ethics, Humanities, American History, Political Science, Introduction to Anthropology, Introduction to Sociology, Native American Studies, and  Twentieth Century History. I also developed abridged critical thinking and mapping as an introduction to all classes. This provided tangible results for measuring learning. Critical thinking essays were requisites for exams, rather than true or false, questions, and the like.

     When I wasn't teaching I remained active working in Human Services, as a Consultant for private families. Presently I reside in New England and am retired.

Description:

     What is virtue, as opposed to a virtue? Corruption for example, is a word often used, in accusing someone of not being true; but true to what? One needs to grasp principle as a basic truth; on which all other truths rest, before corruption can be applied. Once the truth is identified, it can be understood that the accused, has fallen away from and is not being true to principle Can it be a disagreement? Certainly it can. However, just because one believes something to be true, doesn't necessarily make it knowledge, it makes it true belief. Subsequently, corruption rolls off the tongue, as easy as virtue or corruption.

     In western civilization; from Athens to America, even as today worldwide, is another word used; Republic. It has been used so often, to identify so many Countries, that Republic has and is, misconstrued with Democracy. Which is unfortunate.

     Polity for example, is how societies organize into governing bodies. America's polity, is a bicameral system, having two legislative houses, voting on the passing of laws. This is neither a Democracy as America's founders understood it; and neither is it a Republic. For Republic is not a polity; but it is and has always been the remedy for political evils, from Athens to America. Thus, a Republic is a why, rather than a what. For example: America's Founder's without question, regarded America; especially after the Constitutional  Convention of 1788, that America was to be a Representative Republic. So what happened?

     Through the ages of western civilization, from Athens to America, as all republics arose to confront political evils; regardless of their new found polity; there has been a promise. A promise of virtue and the threat of corruption.

     America's Founders knew this well. From a Classical Education, of a centuries old tradition, to Religion, and active citizenship, which all held that independent thought and action, was the highest virtue. Where ethics, morality, and a new commercial age; had the potential to unite Humankind; and free their political economy, from the misery of the British political economy.

    The transition, of this heritage,—cultural, political, social, religious, and economic— that ultimately brought revolution and self-realization, was sprung from an intellectual and spiritually faithful civilization. Colonial, European, and classical history was America's history, in the sense that, the social evolution, and events from the Renaissance, led the revolutionary generation to make a break from the past. Not a divorce from the past; just a break; and to begin anew.  

     The History of Virtue and Corruption tells the story of the tens of thousands of Western Europeans who ventured to the North American British colonies during the seventeenth and eighteenth-centuries. What were their customs of Law and education; religious, philosophical, or political thought?

     The Founders’ ideas about the duty and obligation of government, came from more than five hundred years of English tradition. For it was their ancestors who brought their king under the law; and the revolutionary generation of the eighteenth-century, was determined to do the same, but this time, they would make a government of laws not of men. Privilege was out and merit was in. However, in the 1790s, a new political base emerged, with quite different ideas in mind.       Subsequently, the great republican experiment, not only; DID NOT FAIL, it was never allowed to happen, before a new and different kind of authority and political base had changed the republican regime from within, immediately after the inception of the infant republic.  

     As the revolutionary generation stood in awe of what was happening, to their Revolution, they could only and quickly, distance  themselves, as their republic unraveled about them.

Special Forces sniper, Tom Friddle, returns home to western New York after two years deployed in a combat zone fighting the war on terror. Upon returning home, Tom heals from the horror of war through his family, his farm, and being a role-model. Tom explores the destructive qualities of war which is countered by the healing and regenerative powers of love. David Joseph employs the iceberg theory when writing about 9/11, amputations, death, and the war on terror. The hard facts float above water while the supporting structure, including the symbolism, operates out of sight. “Fathers and Sons” is a definitive piece of literature on “Healing” from catastrophic war.

Description:

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.

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.

He is a freelance writer and critic whose work has appeared in numerous metropolitan newspapers and other publications. He and his wife Nancy, parents of three grown children, live in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.

 

Description:

           Constance (Connie) Pendleton and Connor Martin live in the rundown working-class section of a medium-sized industrial city. Their sixth-grade teacher calls them her “two Connies,” a label they despise but that is the spark that melts their wariness of one another and turns them into friends.

            It is the early 1950s. While the rest of America is growing prosperous, their two families live on the economic edge, Connie with her parents and younger sister, Connor with his Aunt Meg, older sister of his deceased mother. At first the only thing Connie and Connor share is their embarrassment over the shabby, small apartments in which they live. But gradually the things they have in common, including a love of the decade’s movies and music, bring about mutual admiration. Each is troubled by a death in the past.

            Connor’s Aunt Meg, divorced and childless, loves him fiercely. But she has a married boyfriend, Sam, whose volatility and air of danger add to Connor’s fearfulness.

            As friends Connie and Connor complement and are good for each other. Throughout the decade—as they go through school and domestic routine, enjoying dances and movies and other activities—the closeness of their relationship wanes and waxes, until by their senior years it looks as if it might blossom into romance and love.

            Theirs is a Lost World in that the 1950s (revived for the reader in the narrative of these lives) is a time long gone by and foreign to most of us. In a darker sense of the title, Connie and Connie lose their world, smashed for them by a series of disasters.

            They flee from each other and from their sorrows, lost to each other for years—until one of those coincidences that happen in life more often than in books. But after all the sadness, can the coincidence bring happiness?

           An epilogue provides a startling, even shocking, ending—and resolves a troubling issue, introduced in the prologue, that crops up again and again throughout the novel.

About the Author:

As a child, I didn’t care much about reading or writing.  I was a slow reader and one of those left-handed writers that teachers in the late 1950’s thought should be taught to write right-handed. My penmanship looked as confused as I felt and I shied away from anything literary for decades.

My fascination with people took hold when I was twelve years old, delivering newspapers to every corner of my small home town. It was often the people that society tended to shy away from, that I found great joy in spending time with.

As a teen in the late 1960’s, I was confronted with my inability to change my sexual orientation. I’d known from an early age that I wasn’t like the other boys. I felt my pleas to God were unanswered. It never dawned on me that maybe I was exactly who I was created to be.

Over the years, I crossed this nation and back again, living in large cities and tiny rural towns. I’ve held jobs from sweeping floors to corporate management. Several years ago, in recovery from chemical dependency, I began to use writing as a tool for self-discovery as well as self-expression. I slowly came to love writing stories, largely to see what the characters might do next. Many stories later, Franklin was born.

Description:

Franklin Harrison is seventeen years old and about to enter his senior year of high school. Tormented by the teachings of his church that condemn him, he is desperate to change who he is. Franklin struggles to conform to what he has been taught is God’s will for him. This change that he seeks never comes.

When he loses the small solace he found in his love of photography and abandons his camera, any glimmer of hope slips away. He can no longer face the God he believes in or himself.

With all hope gone, the miracle of grace that is extended to him opens the door to a journey that soothes his soul. It leads Franklin to discover, and then share, the love and beauty that is within and around him.

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.

About the Author:

As a Feminist, I joined the Women's Movement in 1968.  Feminism is about how great it is to be a woman -- the Women's Movement addresses the many difficulties women cope with, including the nasty or non-use of the term Feminist until about three years ago.  My writing extends from personal study in Mythology, Archaeology and Anthropology with a final commitment to Anthroapology,  I am a cartoonist as well as a researcher and writer.  The cover of Learning By Heart is my original drawing and I would like to see it replicated because mothers and daughters need one another. This is my sixth e-book with the excellent assistance of LiberWriter.

Description:

LEARNING BY HEART, ​​COURAGEOUS GROWTH, GYNOCENTRIC EDUCATION is Factuality Fiction about the actual or psychological and cultural loss of daughters and it is about a returning.  The severance of the matrilineal bloodline of daughters and sons through the barbarian imposition of sons-in-law has been told more times than mother-in-law jokes.  I try to write Women's Fiction believing that emotion is women's preferred action -- and a relevant basis for action.  The emotional level is dramatized from an internal viewpoint; in other words, from the way women act OUT their feelings.

LEARNING BY HEART is also Historical Factuality Fiction that offers applicable heritage for modern families.  The story conforms to the known facts and assumed spirit of the historic period  (600 BCE), which was a climactic shift from gynocentric culture to patriarchal  conquest society -- to the politics and economics of city states, finally from trading empires to warring empires; and from visionary education to authoritative, even monolithic, disciplines; from ecstatic nature worship to the extremes of sexual prudery and eroticism.  The story centers on a single woman whose life and personality reflect these contrasts; however the many characters span generations and ethnicisities.

After the fall of Sikah-hara, Naqia, a lady of the royal harem flees to the school where she was briefly educated before her marriage -- to the famous school of the sibyls (Western Erythraea) said to have existed in the Ocean Stream, possibly on one of the Canary Islands.  Naqia has lost everything in the turmoil following the collapse of the most powerful Hittite empire.  Of her family, only a daughter may survive as a captive but, so pitiable is that fate, no mother could wish it.

Realizing her ownly wealth is her learning, Naqia plans to teach eme-Sal, the women's literary language (known to have evolved over the course of thousands of years in the harems of the east -- the gynocratic Womens Courts).  Naqia vows that her mind will be a tool not a torment, but from the day of her arrival at the school, memories assail her.  While Naqia tries to forget the past, the sibyls recognize her as a woman of the future; she is a lost daughter of Demeter carried off to Hades, and the sibyls believe she can return.  Others conclude that Naqia doesn't belong at the school.  She offends her oldest friend and clashes with the red bodu, a dominant student.

Yet in coming to the sibylline school on the volcanic island of Erythraea, Naqia and her seven-year-old servant girl, Tayet, have travelled to the home of the Nine Muses whose mother is Memory.  Amused and bemused among an international assembly of teachers and students, woman and girl learn by heart through the diverse talents of the muses to design the mind as a temple with the heart as an altar where a choice of memories are dedicated with which to grow up courageously and to grow old courageously.
