DESCRIPTION:

When Althea Leary abandons her nine-year-old son, Jasper, he’s left on his uncle’s farm with nothing but a change of clothes and a Bible.

It’s 1952, and Jasper isn’t allowed to ask questions or make a fuss. He’s lucky to even have a home and must keep his mouth shut and his ears open to stay in his uncle’s good graces. No one knows where his mother went or whether she’s coming back. Desperate to see her again, he must take matters into his own hands. From the farm, he embarks on a treacherous search that will take him to the squalid hideaways of Detroit and back again, through tawdry taverns, peep shows, and gambling houses.

As he’s drawn deeper into an adult world of corruption, scandal, and murder, Jasper uncovers the shocking past still chasing his mother–and now it’s chasing him too.

Pria is a young woman obsessed with two things: plucking anything and everything in her path, and George, her childhood friend.

As a young girl, Pria stood out for her otherness. The only brown child in her school, she withdrew into her own world. Now as an adult she tries to normalize her life by coming to terms with her differences. To do this, she must find George. He was her first living obsession, and now she needs to find him to understand why she can’t stop thinking about him.

Plagued by her need to pluck continuously, Pria feels trapped in a world of compulsions: the compulsion to follow her rigid daily schedule, the need to collect the miraculous strings growing out of her thin arms, and the love of visiting her avian friends every Wednesday. Will finding George give Pria the peace she seeks?

Or will she retreat further into the depths of her obsession with plucking?

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:

A compulsively readable debut novel about marriage, immigration, class, race, and the trapdoors in the American Dream—the unforgettable story of a young Cameroonian couple making a new life in New York just as the Great Recession upends the economy

Named one of BuzzFeed’s “Incredible New Books You Need to Read This Summer”

Jende Jonga, a Cameroonian immigrant living in Harlem, has come to the United States to provide a better life for himself, his wife, Neni, and their six-year-old son. In the fall of 2007, Jende can hardly believe his luck when he lands a job as a chauffeur for Clark Edwards, a senior executive at Lehman Brothers. Clark demands punctuality, discretion, and loyalty—and Jende is eager to please. Clark’s wife, Cindy, even offers Neni temporary work at the Edwardses’ summer home in the Hamptons. With these opportunities, Jende and Neni can at last gain a foothold in America and imagine a brighter future.

However, the world of great power and privilege conceals troubling secrets, and soon Jende and Neni notice cracks in their employers’ façades.

When the financial world is rocked by the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the Jongas are desperate to keep Jende’s job—even as their marriage threatens to fall apart. As all four lives are dramatically upended, Jende and Neni are forced to make an impossible choice.

Praise for Behold the Dreamers

“Imbolo Mbue’s masterful debut about an immigrant family struggling to obtain the elusive American Dream in Harlem will have you feeling for each character from the moment you crack it open.”In Style

“This story is one that needs to be told.”Bust 

“In the near decade since the onset of the Great Recession, few works of fiction have examined what those years felt like for everyday people, how so many continued to hope and plan and love amid pervasive uncertainty. Enter Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue, a Cameroonian American who situates her characters of US shores just as prosperity is beginning to seem like a thing of the past. . . . Behold the Dreamers challenges us all to consider what it takes to make us genuinely content, and how long is too long to live with our dreams deferred.”O Magazine

“A revelation . . . Mbue has written a clever morality tale that never preaches but instead teaches us the power of integrity.”Essence

“At once a sad indictment of the American dream and a gorgeous testament to the enduring bonds of family, Mbue’s powerful first novel will grip and move you right up to its heartfelt ending.”Shelf Awareness

“Mbue proves herself a clear-eyed, unflinching storyteller, and Behold the Dreamers is a fearless, head-on journey into the thorny contemporary issues of American exceptionalism.”Interview

“Gripping and beautifully told.”Good Housekeeping

“Among the spate of novels forged in the crucible of the previous decade, Mbue’s impressive debut deserves a singular place. . . . Realistic, tragic, and still remarkably kind to all its characters, this is a special book.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The Jongas are . . . vivid, and the book’s unexpected ending—and its sharp-eyed focus on issues of immigration, race, and class—speak to a sad truth in today’s cutthroat world: the American dream isn’t what it seems.”Publishers Weekly

Two years after Emperor Augustus’s bloody defeat of Mark Antony and Cleopatra, he triumphantly returns to Rome. To his only child, Julia, he brings an unlikely companion–Selene, the daughter of the conquered Egyptian queen and her lover.

Under the watchful eye of Augustus’s wife, Livia, Selene struggles to accept her new home among her parents’ enemies. Bound together by kinship and spilled blood, these three women–Livia, Selene, and Julia–navigate the dangerous world of Rome’s ruling elite, their every move a political strategy, their most intimate decisions in the emperor’s hands.

Always suppressing their own desires for the good of Rome, each must fulfill her role. For astute Livia, this means unwavering fidelity to her all-powerful husband; for sensual Julia, surrender to an arranged marriage and denial of her craving for love and the pleasures of the flesh; for orphaned Selene, choosing between loyalty to her family’s killers and her wish for revenge.

Can they survive Rome’s deadly intrigues, or will they be swept away by the perilous currents of the world’s most powerful empire?

Discover award winning author Aaron Safronoff’s lavishly illustrated, all-ages fantasy novel Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall. “Stunning. Awe-inspiring. Revolutionary… an instant fantasy classic” [BlueInk Review].

Cerulean is on the brink of collapse. The decay wasn’t fast, it wasn’t obvious, but now the world stands on the precipice.

Woven forests floating on an ocean around a star, Cerulean’s once vibrant treescape has grown dim over generations of arboreal life, and the creatures of the forest have forgotten the light.

Barra, a young, willful Listlespur, finds her late father’s hidden journal, and reads about his discovery of Cerulean’s brighter past and the mysterious plague he believed has all but destroyed it. He warned the Elders. He urged them to take action. Those were his last words…

Together with her two best friends, Barra will rekindle her father’s legacy and traverse the Great Forest to relight her world, even if she has to travel beneath the Fall.

To fully realize Safronoff’s incredible world building, an amazing team of artists helped visualize the depths and magic of Cerulean through 40 full color pieces of art and over 80 line drawings. This illustrated fantasy novel, Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall, is available on Kindle and in Paperback and Hardcover editions.

DESCRIPTION:

Winner of Inkitt’s Dreamlands contest, this is the first book in an exciting new fantasy series.

Kali and Stonewall have to find a way to work together in order to survive, but she’s a mage and he’s taken an oath to protect the world from magic.

Magic is new to the country of Aredia. Mages are enslaved for their abilities, locked behind high walls and guarded by sentinels – elite warriors with an unnatural immunity to magic.

Kali, a crippled mage who longs to escape her painful past, travels to meet a powerful healer in Whitewater City. But on the way her sentinel escort is decimated by monstrous raiders, leaving her with a single guardian, Stonewall: a sentinel with nothing but his chosen name and his faith in the gods. Together, Kali and Stonewall must learn to work together to survive a harrowing journey while demonic creatures from the north invade their lands.

Meanwhile, the mages and sentinels of Whitewater City are drawing battle lines and preparing for war – against one another.

What will await them should they ever reach their destination?

Reviews

“I love the world-building–”burnies,” the sentinels, the fifth tiers, how the mages work with magic, etc. It was fun to get inside Kali and Stonewall’s heads, along with Milo and even Commander Talon, scary as she seems. I can’t wait to read future installments!” Kassie Grace

“Loved the world, pace and characters, loves it all! From the mystery and plight of Kali to the awesome ethical dilemma of Stonewall, I can’t wait to see where their paths take them. There is magic but it’s with a light touch, which is the way I like it! Character driven page turner, I need more!” WD40

“Fantasy is not usually my go-to genre, but I couldn’t put this book down since I came across it. Overall, the plot was described beautifully and characters were developed in a way that made readers attached to them, fearing for their safety at every twist and turn. Would definitely recommend to all my fantasy loving friends.” Vanessa C.

“Definitely a page-turner. A read for one of those rainy days, to just burry yourself under your blanket and follow the fantastic adventures of Kali and Stonewall.” - Danielle

DESCRIPTION:

“Move over Tim Ferriss, there’s a refreshed approach to unshackling yourself from the grueling busy-work of the grind.” – Matthew Hart – Author and CTO Arise Virtual Solutions

LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND is for anyone who has built a good career, is probably comfortable, yet has an itch–a realization–that there is more to life.

This book is dedicated to all those ready to forge their own path, get more out of life, and burn their imprint on the world. You want more money, more freedom, and to build your own legacy. Perhaps you want to carve a future by leveraging your talents to freelance, consult, or become an entrepreneur.

LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND is packed with actions, habits, and tools that will enable your success and explode your results. It will help you build the legacy you envisioned yourself leaving. You will develop a plan for leaving the grind behind, execute on that plan, and do so with minimal risk.

Time is your most valuable asset. Spending the majority of your waking time working for someone else’s dream won’t let you achieve the life you want. You’ll end up as just another cog in the daily grind, working for an upper-middle class salary with no real end in sight. Your own dreams are fading… but you’re not ready to go down without a fight.

If this sounds like you, you’re ready for more in life than just a job. You’re ready to venture into a realm that will be more rewarding, more exciting, and more personal. You’re ready for something that will make you a fortune.

LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND is for you if you want to…

  • Quit your day job and follow your passions to become a consultant, a freelancer, or an entrepreneur.
  • Be a rock star at the job you already have, opening your career wide.
  • Identify your personal and professional goals, then design your life around them.
  • Reduce the risk of doing something big.
  • Create new revenue streams while working your current job… or not.
  • Purchase investment properties.
  • Complete that passion project on the side.
  • Write a book.
  • Provide for yourself and your family without compromise.
  • Live a superior life directed by you rather than someone else.
  • Enjoy freedom and the best things life has to offer.
  • Leave a legacy.

    LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND will inspire you to leave the daily grind and start a life in which you drive the results. A life in which you:

  • Earn money via multiple channels.
  • Are in control of your time.
  • Do things you enjoy.
  • Leave a legacy that makes you proud.

    It can be a daunting proposition to completely kick your job and spend as much time as you want on projects that excite you. If you’re not quite ready to go all in, this book will give you plenty of guidance and inspiration to get you started.

    To start an excellent, scalable business, you’re probably looking at a couple of years of tremendously hard work with little return and no guarantee. If you already have a solid job, a mortgage, and a family to support, you know that immediately jumping into the deep end is just too risky. But, that doesn’t need to stop you.

    There is no shortage of self-help, personal development, and get-rich books on the market. And that’s great. Life is a journey, and we all need fresh sources of inspiration and ideas to keep ourselves motivated and challenged. This book provides that for you. But it can do something more.

    Many books come from authors who’ve had one particularly large success. Leave the Grind Behind provides a more generally accessible path. You won’t necessarily learn how to be a one time success, but rather to consistently find one success after the next. You’ll get the tools to achieve repeated excellence. Before you know it, you’ll be living the life you’ve always dream

    DESCRIPTION:

    Is your worst enemy the one looking back at you from the mirror?

    Fifteen year old Isabella Rockwell’s bones ache with homesickness. But home is eight thousand miles away in northern India, and Isabella is imprisoned in the bitter winter of nineteenth century London. Sent to England after her father goes missing in a violent battle, Isabella runs away from a life of drudgery and hardship. Rescued from death by a gang of street urchins, Isabella finds the shelter and love she so desperately craves. As an accomplished trickster, she starts to save for her passage home with the money she makes from swindling the rich.

    After a moment of heroism which surprises even herself, Isabella wakes in Kensington Palace. This is an opportunity too good to miss. If she can steal one of the glowing, priceless paintings, she and her gang will have enough to keep out searing cold and gnawing hunger for the rest of their lives.

    If Isabella plays her cards right.

    What she hasn’t reckoned with is her growing fondness for the Princess Alixandrina Victoria Hanover, a kind and lonely girl her own age, and heir to the British throne. Despite the richness of her surroundings, Alix’s life is harsh and without love.

    When someone tries to poison Isabella, Isabella realises it is Alix’s life which is under threat. At first Isabella suspects Prince Ernest, a hardened general, and next in line to the throne. Or is it John Conroy, a powerful schemer, in love with Alix’s beautiful spendthrift mother, and desperate to get his hands on Alix’s inheritance? Either way, Isabella’s feelings of responsibility for Alix and her loyalty to the gang who saved her life, are tearing her apart.

    Instead of taking advantage of Alix, will Isabella puts her own needs aside and cast herself into mortal danger to save her friend? Only the harsh lessons of Isabella’s past can help her decide if she should leave Alix to her fate – a fate tied up with Isabella’s own.

    A fate which will have consequences far beyond those she could ever have imagined.

    “Parry’s descriptions are as varied as they are rich, from the scents of Abhaya’s Indian healing herbs to the sounds of London’s bustling streets and the opulence in the British royalty. A sizeable cast of beautifully developed, memorable characters makes solving the mystery even more deliciously puzzling, and readers will be guessing to the surprising end.

    Imaginative and touching; like India, a sparkling jewel in the crown.”

    Kirkus Reviews, January 2013.

    “I absolutely adored this! Bursting with beautiful writing and insanely lovable characters, Isabella Rockwell’s War is perfect for anyone who enjoys historical middle grade! I desperately want to read more from this author.”

    Samantha Randolph, I Heart YA Fiction Blogspot.com.

    “Isabella Rockwell’s War offers an enticing blend of an historical novel, nineteenth century England, strong-willed heroines, and/or real life fairy tales.”

    Indie Reader, July 2014.

    DESCRIPTION:

    When John Simpson hears of a bizarre animal attack in his old home town of High Moor, it stirs memories of a long forgotten horror. John knows the truth. A werewolf stalks the town once more, and on the night of the next full moon, the killing will begin again. He should know. He survived a werewolf attack in 1986, during the worst year of his life.

    It’s 1986 and the town is gripped in terror after the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in the woods. When Sergeant Steven Wilkinson begins an investigation, with the help of a specialist hunter, he soon realises that this is no ordinary animal attack. Werewolves are real, and the trail of bodies is just beginning, with young John and his friends smack in the middle of it.

    Twenty years later, John returns to High Moor. The latest attack involved one of his childhood enemies, but there’s more going on than meets the eye. The consequences of his past actions, the reappearance of an old flame and a dying man who will either save or damn him are the least of his problems. The night of the full moon is approaching and time is running out.

    But how can he hope to stop a werewolf, when every full moon he transforms into a bloodthirsty monster himself?

    High Moor is the highest rated werewolf horror series on Amazon, and with good reason. Check out the reviews below.

    “Graeme Reynolds has written a real-deal werewolf story. In these dull days of nice, friendly lycanthropes, it is refreshing to see some brutality and animal instincts in what is a very fine British horror novel. Reynolds draws vivid pictures with words. His descriptions of High Moor the town is excellent, portraying an area in decay, one that suffered during the 1980s, and has yet to recover into the 21st century. The transformation scenes, where humans become wolves, are brilliantly done, and you can feel every crack of bone, every tear of flesh. High Moor is a worthy addition to the werewolf canon. – Thomas Emson, Author of Maneater, Prey, Skarlet, Krimson, Zombie Britannica”

    Ripe for a film or TV adaptation and left open for a sequel, High Moor is an excellent example of great British writing that deserves to be read. – Starburst Magazine. 9/10

    If you’re craving some good werewolf action with well-developed characters and a fantastic plot, skip the Hollywood films and go straight for this electrifying novel, which is far more entertaining. – Hellnotes.com

    Graeme Reynolds has written a captivating, action packed, this-should-be-a-movie werewolf novel in High Moor and if this is going to be a series of some sort, count me in for the ride. It should be a fun one. – Horrortalk.com

    This is an action filled horror novel that also has fully realized characters; the fact that Reynolds brings the characters to life so well just adds to the terror you feel as a reader. – The Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog

    It takes a writer of tremendous skill to imbue a an action packed novel with as much depth, as is displayed here. This book was a joy to read, not just for its ability to transport me back to a time gone by, but also because it is so well written. If this is the level of writing Graeme is capable of producing in a début novel, then I for one cannot wait for his next novel. – Gingernuts of Horror

    DESCRIPTION:

    When problem-students meet a teacher with a plan everyone can have a happy outcome…
    “The atmosphere in the classroom was toxic.
    It was a mixture of regular students, special needs students and a couple of ‘professional troublemakers’ that wore ankle bracelets
    But it wasn’t the ‘ankle bracelet students’ that were causing the problem…
    There were three specific students in the ‘center of the storm’.
    “Yes … These three kids have been a problem since the beginning of the year… we might need to have them take summer school” Said the Vice-Principal when I asked him why these particular kids were having such a hard time.
    But you see, this was not my first teaching position. And I wasn’t going to let that happen…
    I implemented the ‘No Failings Students’ teaching method in this class.
    And sure, there were some objections at first,
    But as the weeks went by, there was less fighting…
    Fewer airplanes whizzing by.
    And less failing grades.
    But what made the biggest impact was that the atmosphere in the classroom changed completely.
    It wasn’t just these three kids that were ‘saved’, it was the entire class.

    Here’s what you’ll discover in “No Failing Students”…

    •Seven well organized proven steps for immediate implementation to bring out the best in all students.

    •Detailed examples of how to identify vocabulary that is essential for students to learn and be successful in your classroom.

    •An easy proven way to identify which students will struggle with your content so you can give assistance immediately to reach and meet the needs of every learner in your classroom.

    •Clever Ideas for motivating students to want to learn without compromising academic rigor.

    •A time-saving plan for re-designing practice work using higher order thinking skills in every content area on every level. There is no need to give up your personal life to have successful students.

    •Assessment formats than can be adapted by any teacher to increase a student’s confidence and success on assessments yet save you hours of time.

    •Mistakes that you do not want to make that will cause students to fail.

    The most important benefit of this book is that in a short period of time you can move students from failure to involved, confident, successful, happy learners.

    DESCRIPTION:

    18-year-old Rosemont High School student Vanessa Ellis from Las Vegas, Nevada loves finding out about other people’s secrets, but never imagined how it would be if people found out about hers. Her secret begins her senior year when she ends up in a secret relationship with 18-year-old John Catchton . . . and then in one with 18-year-old Brad Johnston who has a girlfriend – and that’s not all. John and Brad happen to be very good friends with each other and go to the same school as her. But someone out there knows about her secret and lets her know it by sending her a series of threatening secret text messages, and this is not the only thing that she’s receiving. She’s also receiving unwanted roses that are always put inside of her car, so this now has her very cautious about the two that she’s secretly involved with and about whether or not her secret will be revealed. But it doesn’t take her long to feel uncomfortable about being in a secret relationship with John and Brad at the same time, especially since Brad has a girlfriend and there’s someone out there that knows about her secret, so she chooses to end it with one of them, and when she does, this starts a trail of even more secrets and lies. Also because of this choice, she ends up in an open, committed relationship that she doesn’t ever expect to be in, but what she doesn’t expect most of all is when a dark secret leads to a classmate’s murder.

    Vanessa and her friends decide to conduct their own investigation into their classmate’s murder, and forensic science plays a huge part in their investigation, but the DNA results gives them news that they don’t ever expect to hear. Vanessa also doesn’t expect to hear who’s been behind the secret text messages and roses that she’s been receiving, and when the secret identity of the person is revealed, this changes the way she feels about the whole investigation. In addition to this, she also finds out that she’s more connected to this case than she ever thinks she would be, and because of this, she fears that she’ll be the killer’s next victim.

    DESCRIPTION:

    Theology should not be abstract. We should live like it’s true. However, I discovered that there were several areas where my theology was mostly correct, but the truth was not “written on my heart”. I didn’t know how to live it out in my daily life.

    Some examples: I believed that God was sovereign, but I got frustrated when stuck in traffic. I read that in God’s presence is fulness of joy, but I kept chasing after money and what it can buy. I knew that Jesus was preparing a place for me, but I acted as if my house would be eternal if I just maintained it well enough.

    As I was trying to work through these issues, I didn’t find much to help me. (It may well exist; I just didn’t find it.) So I wrote this book to help me think through some of these issues. In essence, it is what I needed to hear.
