DESCRIPTION:

Tired of chess problems that are (often incredibly) way “over your head”?

The fact of the matter is that too many chess books are written for the higher echelons of the chess playing world. Even if not designed strictly for those in the Grandmaster status, too many chess books are designed for players that make up only the top 10% to 15% of the chess playing world. (Players who can think a good 7-10 moves ahead in any given game.)

This book is for the other 85% of us — “The Rest of Us.”
The book includes 100 Chess Problems for Novice/Intermediate players that — while challenging the reader — will never be leaps and bounds above the reader’s capabilities.

The book is filled with hundreds of graphs and long, narrative explanations that will not only show the reader the answer to the problem, but EXPLAIN the answer.

Designed strictly for them, all intermediate players will learn from this book and sharpen their chess playing skills.

Best Seller: #1 in SciFi Colonization, Bestseller: Top 5 in Science Fiction 1/30/2016

Editorial Reviews: “Mesmerizing page turner” “A thrilling ride from start to finish!”

If you liked Avatar and Ender’s Game, you’ll love Black Bead!

On a savage, outlying planet an enclave of psionically-trained humans have built a utopian, matriarchal society that lives in harmony with all life. Leaving behind the polluted and corrupt world in which they lived, they colonized a new home far from the eyes of the galactic empire. Shielded from the rest of the galaxy by the dangerous beasts that inhabit their lush, forested world, the village lives a simple life under their Home Dome. But their goal was more than just to live in peace – they wanted to create the perfect human who could bring peace to the galaxy. Rather than merely cloning themselves, they began to manipulate genes in order to create a race of mutants with enhanced telepathic powers.

Under the direction of the ruling witch coven, each child of the Windfall Dome is tested at a young age to asses their abilities – a test which can plot the course for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, Cheobawn – the daughter of the ruling First Mother to the dome – is marked with the Black Bead on her Choosing Day, a symbol of bad luck and shame. It seems the child the mothers had placed so much hope in would not be the future ruler they had hoped for. Yet there is something powerful about her that the elders don’t understand.

Finally of age, Cheobawn is chosen to join a pack to act as the psychic Ear on a foraging mission outside the dome. She knows this is her chance to prove herself. But something sinister stalks them and each member of the pack must draw on their unique strengths and a lifetime of training if they want to survive to see another day.

In her visionary new series The Black Bead Chronicles, author J.D. Lakey invites you to journey along with Cheobawn, Megan, Tam, Connor, and Alain as they use their wits and their Luck to unravel the mysteries of the deceptively bucolic life beneath the dome in this coming of age metaphysical science fiction adventure.

The peasants called it “The Storm.”

On a cold autumn morning seven years ago, the sky exploded with silent lightning. In its wake, everything changed.

Now the sun rises in the south, if it rises at all. Animals go mad. Crops ripen and die overnight. The Church – a body of miracle-workers who can heal the sick and walk through fire – warns that God’s final judgment is at hand.

The world will soon end.

In a remote village, a small group of childhood friends are caught in the crossfire. Accused of heresy by the Church and sentenced to death, they escape their village as it burns behind them.

But some may find hope.

Their Church hunts them. A cursed world assails them. To survive, one of them will learn the true meaning of her beliefs; another, that some portents can be deceiving. But only one revelation has a chance to save them:

That they are not forsaken. They have each other.

Bestselling Kindle Suspense author Adam J. Nicolai invites you to a land beneath a broken sky, where sorceries clash with miracles, mountains are crowned with lightning, and faith – true faith – can topple empires.

“The Truth Behind Stress Management And Why Most ‘Mainstream’ Advice Is Wrong…”

Discover How to Create More Time, Energy, Vitality And Freedom In Your Life

Have you felt the symptoms of stress creeping into your life more and more?

Darkening your relationships, mindset and body…You’re not alone.

The American Psychological Association recently revealed that over 75% of Americans experience at least one symptom of stress per month. These numbers are likely growing.

This is not acceptable. Change is not just required, it’s a necessity.

Stress isn’t something that just appears, it builds up slowly, and if left unchecked it can lead to some truly frightening consequences. Everything from obesity, unhappiness, insomnia, lack of job satisfaction, illness, and many other side effects.

The problem with traditional approaches to stress management is they avoid the root causes of stress, and focus on external factors that are often impossible to control.

Instead you must focus on the root causes — your environmental, psychological, emotional, and physical health.

This is the “secret” to stress management and creating more time, energy, vitality, and freedom in your life.

Lighten Your Load reveals the simple, actionable strategies anyone can use to address the root causes of their stress and finally start living life lighter.

Inside this book you’ll discover the 35 surprisingly simple ways to a happier, more fulfilled life, such as:

  • Why your bathroom is a source of stress and how to solve this problem today.
  • 21 little-known ways to naturally boost your energy levels
  • How to detox your mind and body in just 3-minutes without drugs or supplements and wipe the slate clean every single day.
  • How to free up time and energy by regaining control over your inbox

Inside Lighten Your Load you’ll also discover how everything from the beauty products in your medicine cabinet, to the processed foods in your pantry…even the movies you watch all have a massive impact to your health, wellness, and happiness.

If you’re ready to finally free yourself from the clutches of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm, then this might just be the most important book you ever read. Because quite frankly, traditional approaches do not work in today’s fast paced, high-intensity world.

Focusing on the external factors of your job, finances or other people can only help in the short term.

Lighten Your Load focuses on the long term, and addresses negativity, toxins, clutter, and stress by going directly to the root causes.

Here’s just some of what you’ll discover how to do:

  • Boost your energy levels with natural exercises anyone can do in just a few minutes per day.
  • Add more peace, calm, and tranquility to your day… even when everything seems to be going out of control.
  • De-stress your life with simple strategies that work almost instantly and deliver lasting results.

So if you’re ready to finally free yourself from stress, toxins , clutter, and lighten your load, you must get this book now.

Get the simple, actionable, all-natural approach to detoxing your body and mind, creating more free time, energy, vitality, and freedom in your life. It’s all revealed inside Lighten Your Load, book one in the Dare To Be AwareTM series.

Don’t be like 75% of Americans and let stress bring down the quality of your life.

Take control and make simple changes to live life free…

He disappeared for ten years, leaving me scarred, broken, and alone. Now he wants me back?

Ten years ago, I had the perfect life. A happy family, a loving boyfriend, a bright future.

Then the accident took everything away. I woke up broken and scarred, my family destroyed. My boyfriend, Jack, gone.

He vanished from my world and left me alone with just memories. Jack’s tight body in my bed, on the kitchen floor, in the park…his hands on my skin, the fire in his eyes as he made me his.

Now he’s back and he wants me to run away with him.

I want him so bad I can taste it. I want his kisses to burn my throat. I want a family with Jack and a child of my own. I want to be whole again.

My heart says yes, but my head wants to know why the world’s most eligible bachelor would want the scarred broken girl when he can have anybody he wants. How can I trust the man who disappeared when I needed him most?

I’m taking her back.

Perfect girl, perfect future. Once, I had everything.

Ellie, my passion. I remember her skin under my hands, her lips pressed against mine, the scent of her hair and the feel of her writhing body. Looks like an angel, but a demon in bed.

Then one cruel night stole it all away. They took me, shipped me overseas. Somebody already planned my perfect life, and my scarred girlfriend wasn’t part of it. I know the truth: The accident was no accident. Someone tried to kill her.

To hell with their plans. I’ll make her mine again, and nothing’s stopping me. I’ll remind her how beautiful she is and we’ll be the family we were meant to be.

They tried to kill me to keep her from me once. I’d rather die than lose her a second time…

West of Eden: An American Place by Jean Stein

West of Eden: An American Placeby Jean Stein

NEW RELEASE

Available at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

An epic, mesmerizing oral history of Hollywood and Los Angeles from the author of the contemporary classic Edie

Jean Stein transformed the art of oral history in her groundbreaking book Edie: American Girl, an indelible portrait of Andy Warhol “superstar” Edie Sedgwick, which was edited with George Plimpton. Now, in West of Eden, she turns to Los Angeles, the city of her childhood. Stein vividly captures a mythic cast of characters: their ambitions and triumphs as well as their desolation and grief.

These stories illuminate the bold aspirations of five larger-than-life individuals and their families. West of Eden is a work of history both grand in scale and intimate in detail. At the center of each family is a dreamer who finds fortune and strife in Southern California: Edward Doheny, the Wisconsin-born oil tycoon whose corruption destroyed the reputation of a U.S. president and led to his own son’s violent death; Jack Warner, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who together with his brothers founded one of the world’s most iconic film studios; Jane Garland, the troubled daughter of an aspiring actress who could never escape her mother’s schemes; Jennifer Jones, an actress from Oklahoma who won the Academy Award at twenty-five but struggled with despair amid her fame and glamour. Finally, Stein chronicles the ascent of her own father, Jules Stein, an eye doctor born in Indiana who transformed Hollywood with the creation of an unrivaled agency and studio.

In each chapter, Stein paints a portrait of an outsider who pins his or her hopes on the nascent power and promise of Los Angeles. Each individual’s unyielding intensity pushes loved ones, especially children, toward a perilous threshold. West of Eden depicts the city that has projected its own image of America onto the world, in all its idealism and paradox. As she did in Edie, Jean Stein weaves together the personal recollections of an array of individuals to create an astonishing tapestry of a place like no other.

Praise for West of Eden

“Jean Stein’s enthralling new oral history, West of Eden: An American Place, brings some of [Los Angeles’s] biggest personalities to life. . . . As she did for Edie Sedgwick in Edie: American Girl, the former Grand Street editor harnesses a gossipy chorus of voices, including luminaries like Arthur Miller and Joan Didion.”Vogue

“Stein expertly orchestrates a chorus of voices—rich and famous and not-so—to create a picture of Hollywood through the lives of five of its most powerful families, drawn to the promise of unmined riches in the oil fields and the fool’s-gold sparkle of stardom. The tales of jaw-dropping excess, cruelty, and betrayal are the stuff of movies, and the pleasures are immense.”Vanity Fair

“If there is anyone still laboring under the delusion that great wealth and a couple of palm trees bring happiness, Jean Stein’s long-awaited oral history of Los Angeles, West of Eden, should put that notion to rest. . . . It is probably not an exaggeration to say that West of Eden is the most intelligent, painstakingly researched work of schadenfreude yet produced.”—Katie Roiphe, Town & Country

“Jean Stein’s West of Eden is a stunning exploration of five families who made Los Angeles what it is. Gossipy, dark, rich, mesmerizing.”—Joan Didion

“[A] compelling, occasionally gossipy, informative chronicle of the flamboyant personalities from a storybook Hollywood era . . . [West of Eden] rivets.”Kirkus Reviews

THE CUCKOOS OF BATCH MAGNA

When Sir Humphrey Strange, 8th baronet and squire of Batch Magna departs this world for the Upper House (as he vaguely thought of it, where God no doubt presides in ermine over a Heaven as reassuringly familiar as White’s or Boodle’s), what’s left of his estate passes, through the ancient law of entailment, to distant relative Humph, an amiable, overweight short-order cook from the Bronx.

Sir Humphrey Franklin T Strange, 9th baronet and squire of Batch Magna, as Humph now most remarkably finds himself to be, is persuaded by his Uncle Frank, a small time Wall Street broker, to make a killing by turning the sleepy backwater into a theme-park image of rural England, a playground for the world’s rich.

But while the village pub and shop put out the Stars and Stripes in welcome, the tenants of the estate’s dilapidated houseboats tear up their notices to quit, and led by randy pulp-crime writer Phineas Cook and the one-eyed Lt-Commander James Cunningham, they run up the Union Jack and prepare to engage.

Some people stop at the water’s edge.
Some keep going…

Biologist Angela Haynes is accustomed to dark, lonely nights as one of the few humans at a penguin research station in Patagonia. She has grown used to the cries of penguins before dawn, to meager supplies and housing, to spending most of her days in one of the most remote regions on earth. What she isn’t used to is strange men washing ashore, which happens one day on her watch.

The man won’t tell her his name or where he came from, but Angela, who has a soft spot for strays, tends to him, if for no other reason than to protect her birds and her work. When she later learns why he goes by an alias, why he is a refugee from the law, and why he is a man without a port, she begins to fall in love–and embarks on a journey that takes her deep into Antarctic waters, and even deeper into the emotional territory she thought she’d left behind.

Against the backdrop of the Southern Ocean, The Tourist Trail weaves together the stories of Angela as well as FBI agent Robert Porter, dispatched on a mission that unearths a past he would rather keep buried; and Ethan Downes, a computer tech whose love for a passionate activist draws him into a dangerous mission.

294 pages

“This immensely readable and exciting novel brings together the seemingly disjointed lives of characters who share a common thread: whether they know it or not, their purpose is to be devoted to the cause of helping animals…The Tourist Trail is epic, sprawling and strikingly cinematic.”

DESCRIPTION:

The peasants called it “The Storm.”

On a cold autumn morning seven years ago, the sky exploded with silent lightning. In its wake, everything changed.

Now the sun rises in the south, if it rises at all. Animals go mad. Crops ripen and die overnight. The Church – a body of miracle-workers who can heal the sick and walk through fire – warns that God’s final judgment is at hand.

The world will soon end.

Now, stories tell of men that speak with beasts and peasants who work their own miracles. The Church decries these heretics, hunting them like animals and demanding the same of the faithful.

In a remote village, a small group of childhood friends are caught in the crossfire. Accused of heresy by the Church and sentenced to death, they escape their village as it burns behind them.

But some may find hope.

Their Church hunts them. A cursed world assails them. To survive, one of them will learn the true meaning of her beliefs; another, that some portents can be deceiving. But only one revelation has a chance to save them:

That they are not forsaken. They have each other.

Bestselling Kindle Suspense author Adam J. Nicolai invites you to a land beneath a broken sky, where sorceries clash with miracles, mountains are crowned with lightning, and faith – true faith – can topple empires.

“The Truth Behind Stress Management And Why Most ‘Mainstream’ Advice Is Wrong…”

Discover How to Create More Time, Energy, Vitality And Freedom In Your Life

Have you felt the symptoms of stress creeping into your life more and more?

Darkening your relationships, mindset and body…You’re not alone.

The American Psychological Association recently revealed that over 75% of Americans experience at least one symptom of stress per month. These numbers are likely growing.

This is not acceptable. Change is not just required, it’s a necessity.

Stress isn’t something that just appears, it builds up slowly, and if left unchecked it can lead to some truly frightening consequences. Everything from obesity, unhappiness, insomnia, lack of job satisfaction, illness, and many other side effects.

The problem with traditional approaches to stress management is they avoid the root causes of stress, and focus on external factors that are often impossible to control.

Instead you must focus on the root causes — your environmental, psychological, emotional, and physical health.

This is the “secret” to stress management and creating more time, energy, vitality, and freedom in your life.

Lighten Your Load reveals the simple, actionable strategies anyone can use to address the root causes of their stress and finally start living life lighter.

Inside this book you’ll discover the 35 surprisingly simple ways to a happier, more fulfilled life, such as:

  • Why your bathroom is a source of stress and how to solve this problem today.
  • 21 little-known ways to naturally boost your energy levels
  • How to detox your mind and body in just 3-minutes without drugs or supplements and wipe the slate clean every single day.
  • How to free up time and energy by regaining control over your inbox

Inside Lighten Your Load you’ll also discover how everything from the beauty products in your medicine cabinet, to the processed foods in your pantry…even the movies you watch all have a massive impact to your health, wellness, and happiness.

If you’re ready to finally free yourself from the clutches of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm, then this might just be the most important book you ever read. Because quite frankly, traditional approaches do not work in today’s fast paced, high-intensity world.

Focusing on the external factors of your job, finances or other people can only help in the short term.

Lighten Your Load focuses on the long term, and addresses negativity, toxins, clutter, and stress by going directly to the root causes.

Here’s just some of what you’ll discover how to do:

  • Boost your energy levels with natural exercises anyone can do in just a few minutes per day.
  • Add more peace, calm, and tranquility to your day… even when everything seems to be going out of control.
  • De-stress your life with simple strategies that work almost instantly and deliver lasting results.

So if you’re ready to finally free yourself from stress, toxins , clutter, and lighten your load, you must get this book now.

Get the simple, actionable, all-natural approach to detoxing your body and mind, creating more free time, energy, vitality, and freedom in your life. It’s all revealed inside Lighten Your Load, book one in the Dare To Be AwareTM series.

Don’t be like 75% of Americans and let stress bring down the quality of your life.

Take control and make simple changes to live life free…

No one knows how the world died.

They only know that it happened centuries ago.

Among the remnants of mankind – the people that live and die scavenging in the ruins – it is thought that the strangers who live behind the barrier, inside their protected city, may still hold that secret.

But no one taken by the hunters from the city ever comes back.

For Jack Avery, living among the ruins of the outer zone and scavenging to survive is not the worst of nightmares. Something haunts him far more than any hunter patrol. In one short moment, two years before, something happened that changed him. This story is about his journey through the apocalypse, but also through his own regrets and doubts.

Are there second chances?

Can Jack find the answer to his torment among the shattered ruins of the past?
