Robert Deason
About the Author:

When the author, Robert Deason was a young child, two older boys tied him up by his feet and left him hanging alone, hidden inside a building. That memorable incident makes its way in an altered form into Super Shy. The author's situation isn't unique. Most kids experience either teasing, bullying, or being left out, especially during the junior high years. The author made it through junior high a long time ago, but watching his own children's struggles as pre-teens/young teenagers, it seems not much has changed.  It's a time of great turmoil. Imagine going through it while carrying the secret of a super power, a power that could be your salvation or your downfall.

You won't feel sorry for Edelweiss and her friends. You'll be rooting for them to find their way, because you'll see yourself and those you love in their struggles. Super Shy is an adventure, it's a coming-of-age story, and a fantasy grounded in the hard realities of being a kid.

Description:

Edelweiss Featherwhite lhides behind her shyness to cope with the bullies who tease and hurt her in junior high school. During Science Club, an accident changes Edelweiss from a wallflower into a girl who can walk through walls What do you do with a weird power like that? Well, when two other eighth grade outsiders get secret super powers, too, Edelweiss teams up with them to get back at the kids making them miserable.

Revenge doesn't taste so sweet, though, once Edelweiss falls for the most popular boy in school, nor when she and her classmates are forced into an unexpected fight for their lives. Unless Edelweiss and her partners overcome their own weaknesses and embrace what truly makes a hero, no kids will survive to see graduation day.

Anyone who has attended school, been bullied, or possesses a secret power will relate to this fanciful tale of overcoming jealousy, betrayal, doubt and the desperate need to fit in.

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.

When smallpox blinds Turlough O’Carolan, a young man from a poor family in late 17th century Ireland, he loses more than his sight. He loses Bridget Cruise, his beautiful bride-to-be, and all his hopes for the future.

But his patroness, who gave Turlough his education, refuses to let him succumb to self-pity, and sends him off to be schooled as a harper – a revered vocation in the long history of the Irish people.

The mystic, captivating music he creates with the harp – the symbol and soul of Ireland – restores Turlough’s hope, brings him great renown, and sets him on a new road.

But that road has unforeseen destinations, and Turlough is swept around a bend he was almost fated to travel. And two paths of the heart – long thought abandoned and overgrown by time – unexpectedly reappear, rise up, and cross again.

Celeste White
About the Author:

I grew up east of the 100th meridian, which meant that I had no inkling of what it would be like to experience a major wildland fire like the ones that take place in the American West. Quite a few years ago, an arsonist lit a fire near the small city I moved to in far northern California, one which burned 64,000 acres, demolished the rural health clinic my husband helped found, and destroyed 600 structures. The hair-raising stories from our friends who had to flee the fire made a huge impression on me—so much so that I decided research the phenomenon and write this.

Then the Lightning Siege of 2008 struck. Six thousand lightning strikes sparked two thousand fires, 150 of them in the area where I live, three of them right behind the ridge my home occupies. One night, after weeks of smoke and jangled nerves, the wind came howling down off the Oregon desert and every fire around us exploded. That night, my husband and I awoke in the middle of the night to find our bedroom flooded with orange light. When we stepped to the window, we saw that flames were dancing along the top of the entire ridgeline that formed our western horizon. We were evacuated for eight nail-biting days.

Living through a wildland fire was as awe-inspiring, terrifying, and daunting as I had imagined. Anyone who has lived through one of these elemental experiences knows this. I hope that this book can give those who have never had such an experience a vivid picture of what it would be like, as well as give voice to those who have.

I’ve written my entire life, starting in second grade; I studied Creative Writing at Wellesley College, where I graduated with a double major in English Literature and Biology. My children’s book, The Legend of the Flying Hotdog, a fable about the power of kindness, was published by Green Tiger Press and optioned for film. I served as editor-in-chief for the literary magazine, The Hot Air Quarterly, for several years. My first novel, The Last Good Fairy, first published as a limited collector’s edition won a New England Book Show Award for excellence in book design; it is currently available on Kindle. 

Description:

A burned-out physician whose stale world is crumbling around him, a homeless man bedeviled by a phantom loss, an alienated young girl living off the grid with her controlling father, a volunteer firefighter driven by a devastating mistake … Fifteen compelling voices tell the story of a raging, out-of-control wildfire.

By turns heartbreaking, triumphant, mysterious, and familiar, Altar of Fire illustrates how seeds of redemption, release, and hope can germinate beneath the ashes of loss. And it reminds us of the potential that lies within not only each challenge, but also each individual, no matter how broken or lost.

Aubrey Glen Mobley
About the Author:

 

Aubrey Glen Mobley was born in the northeast corner of the state of Arkansas. When he was five years old he moved to the state of Arizona.

 There he met an Indian boy named Petie Martinez. Although Glen was only in the first grade, he was fascinated by his Indian friend. One day, Glen, went with his mother and father, to the Indian reservation, to meet the real American Indian. They even went to the mountains, where they explored the village of the cliff dwellers; an awesome sight.

 He returned to Arkansas five years later, where he attended Lafe High School. After graduation he went to Flint, Michigan, where he got a job at the Fisher Body plant, later named the Chevrolet Truck and Bus plant. He retired in 1995 and returned to northeast Arkansas, where he purchased the Spirit Lake property.

     The original lake, built by beaver, was destroyed in the 1800’s, when loggers cleared the land of all the trees.

     In 1980, Spirit Lake Development Corporation rebuilt the lake, renaming it Spirit Lake. Reaganomics halted any further development of the property.

     In 1995, Glen learned he had Indian blood. His great grandmother was full-blooded Quapaw Indian. With that knowledge and a story to tell, he began to research his heritage. With the help of Bill Jones, the story has now been told.

                This story is about the Quapaw Indians that lived on Spirit

          Lake in the 1500s.                         

Description:

This is the story of a young Quapaw Indian boy who lived in northeast Arkansas, just north of the present day city of Pocahontas, in the year 1541, and how his life was drastically changed by events not of his choosing. How he took on the mighty De Soto and his entire army, as he sought revenge for what De Soto had done to his people. He was the last of his tribe, and he would slay the famous conquistador, De Soto. Kyota was transformed from a young boy, who simply wished to be a great hunter, into a great warrior, and the legend of Spirit Lake.

And, just why is it essential that your wife always wears white knickers while travelling? While finding out, you will agree with the author of this book, that it is fun to be Russian and vodka is naked vitamin and pure energy! Enjoy reading and Na Zdorovie!

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:

About the Author:

Born in NYC and having travelled and lived around the world I have been influenced by the works of James Redfields' Insights about syncronies and how  the people we meet and the events in our lives can show us a new way of living.  I like others of our time realize that our thoughts are very powerful and fear dominates our reactions in most things on earth. By changing from Fear to Love we can achieve anything. I tried to use local events from newspapers and historical events to illustrate these ideas.  The writings of Pople John Paul 11 have not only inspired me but give us great hope in the future of mankind and for me confirm the belief that we are on the brink of a universal spiritual revival. 

Description:

 What are your intentions? Are your  thoughts based on Fear and leading you to a destructive life or a life of love and purpose? Take a journey through different ages from the Russian revolution to life with the Carthars,to present day life in the UK.  While  Marchell and Johnny search for "Their Place" they encounter and try to influence the lives of those on earth and help them to understand our destiny -is to create heaven on earth. Along the way throughout all time they show us where there is love there is always hope and that Fear which destroys lives can be overcome .Or thoughts are very powerful, change is just a thought away.

Mis versos son verdades incompletas, nacidas en los instantes de una mirada entre párpados intimidados; un acercamiento fugaz a la forma en que unos brazos yacen apoyados, al color brillante de un suspiro, a la exigencia de alegría o tristeza que guardan los pequeños gestos que apenas se perciben, a la lágrimas de la emoción estética...; afloran como un saber dormido en una idea que despierta.

...

Porque yo, soy poeta, leo las almas

y cuento las lágrimas de la vida.

(Pasos de Arco Iris. Amarillo y violeta)

Me gusta definirme como: "amiga de Las Horas, que custodian las puertas del cielo, de la lluvia, el silencio y sus colores".

Description:

Este libro es un canto al mar, al agua y a la vida.

El agua, uno de los elemenbtos que nos constituyen y habitamos, se mueve y se transforma entre azules, pacíficos o plenos de conmoción. Siempre hay que atrapar la mano de su color, guía hacia las verdades iniciales y profundas.

About the Author:

Harambee K. Grey-Sun is a poet and metaphysical/speculative fiction writer. The word best describing his work is dark. He uses elements of fantasy, horror, noir, and science fiction to spin bizarre, mind-bending, and (some might say) heretical tales that explore the meaning of identity and the nature of consciousness. His metaphysical fantasy series Eve of Light reexamines the nature of God and what it means to be human.

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:

          People often ask what made me want to write a book at this stage in my life and career?  Well, I'm not sure really. I guess I had a story in my head that I needed to tell. That often leads them to ask if the book is somewhat autobiographical. The story itself is in no way connected to my life but the interplay between the characters in some cases includes elements of relationships I've had in my time. So I guess the answer is maybe a little bit?

          Some ask why paranormal? I can safely say I've been touched by practically every social disease that exists in one way or another - either personally or with family, friends - be it addiction, violence, disease, incest, mental illness, lack of faith, dysfunction, racism, sexism, or  . . . you name it. I guess these pieces since already explored in my real life, lost some of their horror and only seemed interesting enough to write about when rubbed up against the 'other worldly'.

           Who is Lyla? I get that one from time to time. Throughout the two years it took me to write the book, I believed Lyla to be more closely aligned to my daughter - saucy and sassy personality, appearance, multi-culturalism, etc. But later as I talked about the characters in detail, people closest to me pointed out that Lyla can only be 'me'. I guess I've accepted that to some degree at this point.

          What about Brian, and the sick relationship between he and Lyla? Well, I'll keep the answer to that between my therapist and I.

          And, Ollie? I sometimes think that character represents all I once thought I had to be in life:  self-less, dependable, extremely capable, and hopelessly bound by the past. 

          And well, of course, there's The Bishop. Everybody asks about The Bishop. I can only tell you - He Exists. :)

          Why do I think 'Standing in the Gap' is something special? Well, because I wrote it, of course. :)  But beyond that, it falls outside the commonly defined lines of street lit or urban fiction. While it certainly has its share of drugs, violence and sex, it is not really about street life per se- in fact, I believe its gift is the juxtaposition between those raw elements and that of the magnificent and mystical world of the Seioka (the meaning of which you'll only understand if you read my book).

          From the moment I sat down to key the first words of the book, I knew it would include lots of jaw dropping moments, tear jerker moments, and elements people with high sensibilities might find unacceptable or offensive. I wanted the reader to be completely surprised by the twists and shocked as the shameful secrets are at last revealed. I knew I had to deliver fast-paced action and the romance must be highly charged. I wanted the reader to truly feel it as the characters' lives spun out of control - there could be no 'down time' !

         While paranormal is the backdrop, the story is on the whole a hybrid of a crime thriller, erotica, and a tiny bit of existential philosophy.

         It would bring me absolute delight to have you read my novel!

Description:

What’s left when the truth destroys? Lyla Frazier, trying desperately to put the past and the shame behind her, seeks an answer to that question in Standing in the Gap. Ollie loved Lyla. He loved her in spite of the dark secret, in spite of her mental illness, in spite of the fact she would never love him the way he deserved because no matter how much she wanted to, Lyla couldn’t get a dead man out of her heart.

They believed the horror of the previous year was over, that the cost to end it had been paid with the lives of those they loved. But they were wrong. Soon they would each realize the evil taking place in Arcola was but one step in completing a new and even more sickening campaign to bring forth the Shakshi Mati. Could Lyla stop Noire, the flamboyant, sadistic Seioka at the helm of the new campaign? Would she find a way to let the past go finally, to move on, in love? Or would the darkness envelope her mind again, this time forever? Standing In The Gap is a love story, a story of survival, bravery, and self-discovery.
