DESCRIPTION:

At what point in life have you officially not made it?

For Steve, Sophia, Dave, and Brooke, life hasn’t turned out as planned. Rather than easy fame and fortune, these happy-go-lucky teenagers of the 1980′s found young adulthood a mystifying series of dead-end jobs, failed relationships, family scandal, and surging frustration.

Now approaching middle age, all they want is to reverse their gradual alienation from life and one another, reconnecting with their earlier, innocent selves.

But there’s a catch. Before any of them can move forward, they must collectively confront that one outrageous night back in college that first drove them apart, revealing secrets potentially shattering everything they ever were.

A blend of hard-edged Contemporary Fiction and raw satire, The Bull Years chronicles the bumpy road many in Generation X took through their 20′s and 30′s. The multi-layered narrative is sure to resonate quite strongly with anyone who’s struggled to find their way, while also remaining true to themselves.

So if you’ve ever wondered why life is so much harder than you ever dreamed, the promised land always just out of reach, then The Bull Years is an experience not to be missed.

DESCRIPTION:

From Nancy Tesler, author of the Amazon bestselling "Other Deadly Things" series, comes a spine-chilling tale of murder and romance.

Samantha Barron, victim advocate for the prosecutor's office, has her world shaken up when former lover Doug Ruark who had thrown her off his elite crisis response team for disobeying orders, insinuates himself into one of her cases. A terrified young girl shows up at Samantha's office blurting out a story about having witnessed a friend being "cast into the abyss" at a Halloween parade; then suddenly bolts crying that she is a Judas, she will face "purgatorial fires" for her betrayal.

Samantha must work with Ruark if she is to find and rescue the girl before the leaders of the malevolent religious cult holding her captive discover that she had recognized the masked killer. Agreeing to go inside the cult house as a perspective convert, Samantha is caught up in a world where power and greed rule, where "love" is given and withdrawn as a brainwashing technique, and life is cheap if you're a trouble-making outsider…

DESCRIPTION:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – May 26th, 2006 – “Ten Things We Love This Week”
3. ‘I HATE MYSELF AND I WANT TO DIE,’ by Tom Reynolds
This roundup of 52 of the most maudlin songs ever penned, from Manilow to Metallica, will move you to tears of despair — or shrieks of helpless laughter.

PLAYBOY – “There must be a section of Tom Reynolds’s record collection that wards off disc jockeys like a cross repels vampires. The writer/TV producer’s steep descent into depressing pop music, I Hate Myself and Want to Die is a humorous song-by-song analysis of the most egregious examples of audio torture. Its title may sound like a hackneyed VH1 special, but Reynolds steps above pointless banter by demonstrating some serious scholarship, exposing gut-wrenching stories behind these songs like the telling fact that the writers of “Without You,” covered by Mariah Carey, both hung themselves….Overall, his picks are solid and stick to chart-topping tragedies, ranging from the Billie Holiday lynching tune “Strange Fruit” (“Black bodies swinging in the Southern breeze”) to a prescient analysis of Johnny Cash’s superior cover of Trent Reznor’s “Hurt.” Reynolds also manages to sneak in some unknown misfires, like his number one pick “The Christmas Shoes,” a Christian adult contemporary Christmas song (already depressing) about poor kids buying slippers for their terminally ill mom to wear in heaven (kill me already).

NEW MUSIC EXPRESS – “Full of premium trivia and pinpoint pomposity pricking, Reynolds has made comedy gold from the full base metal of misery.”

WHAT’S ON IN LONDON – “A sustained and superbly observed insight into some of rock music’s most memorable follies, it is an absolute must-read. Brilliant.”

UNCUT Magazine – “Tom Reynolds, an American TV producer who manages to combine the wit of Dave Barry with the musical tastes of a bath towel, takes a simple concept and pulls great big inappropriate belly laughs from it….Genius.”

Anne Stephenson, THE REPUBLIC – “To write a book like this, you need a working knowledge of music recorded over the past 70 years and an astute and merciless sense of humor. Tom Reynolds is our man.”.

Rob Lester, EDGE MAGAZINE – “What makes this book so worthwhile and more than just cathartic (oh, it is that!) is the humor. Reynolds’ language is colorful and clever and his greatest skills are sarcasm and funny, funny exaggeration for effect… Smug? Absolutely. But it’s mostly a hoot.”

PUCKNATION – “I Hate Myself and Want to Die, is one of the most brilliant looks at music and popular culture I’ve read in a long time. This collection of essays rips through music with ludicrous comments, humor and sarcasm. Reynolds’ knack for timing and wit allows him to tear seemlessly through these songs, with great results….An instant classic and perfect bathroom reading.”

ROCKNWORLD – “Don’tcha just love discovering a book that is too funny to be read in public, that makes eating or drinking while reading it a sure way to choke & die? What makes the subject matter of this book even better is its importance & truth…..His treatments of Evanescence’s entry on the list & Metallica are so funny that I wish I could quote the entire chapters here.”

DESCRIPTION:

The mayor of Fulton Springs, Alabama, has one thing on his mind: His reelection, and the money and power that come with it. He’s an old pro in the political game and quick to sell out the public to special interests if the price is right. He says all his decisions are made in the best interest of his citizens, so they should just shut up and follow the rules.

Restaurant owner, Frank Standish, is tired of having his business hamstrung by all the new taxes and regulations that crop up at each city council meeting helmed by the mayor’s lackeys. The cronies in office are choking off his livelihood and stomping on his freedom. So Frank decides to do something about it.

Backed by a surge of grassroots support, Frank and his family and friends at The Bull, a local bar and barbecue pit, mount a blue-collar revolt against government run amok. Frank runs on a groundbreaking political platform: a promise to serve only a single term on behalf of the freedom-loving citizens of Fulton springs, imposing his own strict term limit to insulate himself from the influence of outside interests. His strategy resonates wildly with the voters who orchestrate an underdog campaign to unseat the mayor — a concerted effort that refuses to be silenced by slanderous propaganda, corrupt authority, vindictive police or even bullets from a gun.

With a red-hot rebellious streak steeped in rich southern tradition, this is the story of Frank Standish and company, who are sick of the city telling them what to do. And they plan to make a change, whether the mayor likes it or not.

Our flight through the woods is only the start of our journey. The lords’ flaming attacks, their deception, the loss of so many of my people–I don’t know if I will survive, or if I even want to.

But for my love, I will do almost anything, even battle the fire above.

DESCRIPTION:

1410 A.D. – Battle-hardened warrior and favored of the king, Sir Lucien de Russe is called the Iron Knight because of his indestructibility in battle. An older knight, Lucien is entering his fortieth year and has seen a good deal in his lifetime. But having sustained fairly serious wounds in the most recent rebellions against Henry IV, Lucien retires his sword and spurs, choosing to live out the rest of his life in peace. Physically, he is damaged goods and must heal. Mentally, however, he is already dead.

Having lost his wife many years ago, Lucien has two children – a son who barely acknowledges him and a daughter who is a terror. Lucien finds no joy in life any longer, looking back upon an illustrious career, admired and loved by the fighting men of England, yet inside, he is hollow. It is this existence he has resigned himself to when the king, believing he is doing Lucien a great favor, pledges him to a very young heiress. When the girl and her father show up at Lucien’s home, he makes an escape.

Riding to clear his head, Lucien runs right into a robbery in progress. A fine carriage has been set upon by bandits and Lucien knows he cannot turn away. Begrudgingly, the Iron Knight goes into action once more and saves the occupants of the carriage, a mother and her young daughter.

Lady Sophina de Gournay is a widow, traveling to meet her intended. When the big, handsome knight with the long, dark hair saves her from the outlaws, a simple moment of gratitude turns into something that binds her to Lucien far more than either of them realize. It’s that wonderful chance meeting, a chain of events is started that could destroy them both.

Join Lucien and Sophina in a romance of a lifetime, where second chances at love are something worth fighting for.

Welcome to The Isle…

Lily Locke has never believed in witches and wizards, ghosts and magic, shifters and vampires–especially cute blonde vamps with blood-intolerance issues. A rising star at a hotshot marketing agency in Minneapolis, Minnesota, all Lily knows is that she’s a PowerPoint guru, an Excel ninja, and a coffee-maker extraordinaire. Not to mention she’s next in line for a huge promotion.

All that changes when Lily’s assistant delivers a strange quiz to her, one titled A Magical Assessment for Normal Folks. With it comes the promise of a land she’s never known existed. A land where Lily not only discovers her biological family for the first time, but a place where she can make a difference, change lives, and step into the role she’s destined to fulfill.

But first, Lily must admit she’s a witch. Then, she has to acknowledge that the tall, dark, and mysterious man who offers his help is strictly focused on business…at least, for now. When a body turns up dead and the next target is Lily, she must trust her powers and accept the help of her newfound friends. Otherwise, she’ll never survive the trials of the magical island tucked far, far away in the frigid waters of Lake Superior.

DESCRIPTION:

“My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker” is based on Melissa Burch’s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her twenties when she traveled with the mujahideen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush. “My Journey Through War and Peace” examines how, through outward action and inward exploration, life can unfold in mysterious ways, far beyond cultural and family expectations. In looking back at this momentous decade, Burch shares why she pursued such dangerous and difficult circumstances at such a young age and continued to live on the edge. She now understands that she was seeking self-discovery, a connection to something greater, and ultimately inner peace. This exciting memoir will resonate with fans of “Eat Pray Love,” “Wild,” and other popular memoirs that describe extraordinary inner and outer journeys.

In your life you come to a point when thinking about doing something just doesn’t do it
for you anymore. Each of us walks on this world for a purpose with particular talents and predispositions. These forces shape us and they drive our every action. My actions told me I was an adventurer at heart. However, soon I realized life was not just about being on the road. I began to broaden my thinking. I considered the bigger picture. What were the benefits of doing all this? More importantly, how is this helping anyone else besides me? Is the road even benefiting me or am I lost in my self-delusion? After six years of pursuing my adventures, I began to think what would be the best way to give back. I sat down and asked myself, what do I know? How can I present what I know? And how can it best benefit people?

This book is the result of seeking an answer to these questions. By combining poetry, personal stories, and descriptive narratives, this book delivers a one of a kind piece aiming to merge skills, passion and vision and makes a compelling argument to get out and hit the Road of Life.

Entertaining, insightful, and inspirational, this book presents the value of the road and how to utilize it to succeed in many aspects of life.

Like the road, this book has a direction of education, but leaves room for the reader to explore and find value in areas specific to them.

DESCRIPTION:

Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, teams up with Emmy-winning writer Phoef Sutton for a brand-new series of mysteries featuring Emerson Knight and Riley Moon, a dynamic duo with instant and undeniable chemistry.
 
Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he’s also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he’d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.
 
What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.

Become Your Own Personal Coach

Wouldn’t it be great to have a life coach in your corner at all times to ask you probing questions and help you figure out how to move your life forward in the best direction? What if you had someone who knew exactly what to say to draw out your deepest desires and help you achieve your goals and dreams? Having a personal coach is wonderful, but if you know the right questions to ask yourself, you can become your own coach, mentor, and motivator.

The Power of Self-Questioning

Self-questioning is a highly useful and powerful technique for creating awareness and self-discovery. By asking the right questions, you open hidden doors in your mind leading to solutions and “aha” moments in your career, your relationships, and your personal growth. These questions reveal the uncharted territory of your nature and motivations, areas you may not have consciously explored previously. They compel you to break from reactive or automatic behaviors so you can take action for positive change based on self-knowledge and more evolved beliefs about yourself and your experience of the world.

Take Control: How Self-Discovery Questions Can Change Your Life

When you get serious about self-questioning, you won’t be able to sit on the sidelines any longer and wait for things to happen in your life. You will no longer accept being a reactor to life — you’ll insist on being the creator of your destiny and the quality of your life. Questions reveal what is going wrong with your life, where you need to change, and what you long for that you haven’t accomplished. Once you are completely honest with yourself about these things, you simply can’t accept the status quo any longer. Action is required, as your answers to the questions reveal exactly what you need to do to take charge of your own life.

ORDER: Self-Discovery Questions: 155 Breakthrough Questions to Accelerate Massive Action

Self-Discovery Questions is your handbook for taking control of your life, one powerful question at a time. It’s your go-to guide for uncovering exactly what you need to know about yourself too make massive change for the better in your relationships, your career, your health, your finances, and virtually every aspect of your life. Give yourself the gift of time to go through each question, read the question prompts, and keep a personal journal of your responses and the actions you intend to take. By asking yourself these breakthrough questions, you’ll ignite your inner fire to become your very best self.

Kidnapped Cowboy – After countless attempts to speak with the owner of the retreat for troubled teens she runs on the outskirts of Lone Tree, Montana, Caitlin Myers resorts to kidnapping Brandon ‘The Ogre of Lone Tree’ Barnes in a desperate attempt to change his mind about turning Stoney Brook into a vacation resort for the wealthy.

Retired rodeo star, Dalton Barnes, gets the surprise of his life when he’s abducted by a soft-spoken female with a ‘gun’ and taken to the retreat his family owns. He soon learns she’s kidnapped the wrong cowboy by mistake. She wanted his brother. Things go from bad to worse when a late spring snowstorm strands them together at the cabin. But it’s during their snow-in that Dalton learns why Caitlin has gone to such lengths to save Stoney Brook. Having had issues with his older brother himself and a not so happy past, Dalton promises to do what he can to help her.

When confronted Brandon tells Dalton he’ll hold off on his plans for the retreat, but only if Dalton agrees to stick around and help run it. Keeping his promise to Caitlin, Dalton agrees and what starts out as a common goal to turn the troubled teens’ lives around that summer ends up turning theirs around as well. Can a man who has always avoided putting down roots and a woman with a deep-seated fear of abandonment hang on to the happiness they’ve found together? Or will the past return to threaten their newfound love?

Love, laughter and a heartwarming read…

“Crowning Glory is what would happen if ‘Eat Pray Love’, ‘A Beautiful Mind’, and ‘Sex in the City’ had a ménage à trois…” – Sunny Turner

You want your hair to be perfect to show the true you. But without the hair on your head, who are you? What if it is somebody else’s hair?

In this beautifully written, heartfelt, witty, and life-affirming memoir, Stacy Harshman tracks her amazing experiment. By wearing dramatic, identically styled but differently colored wigs for weeks in New York City, Stacy Harshman learns more about who she is and what she can find in herself as a redhead, a raven-haired goth, a brunette, and a blonde.
After hiring a spy to document how people responded to her, Stacy realizes how her hair is woven into every aspect of her life: her self-image, her depression, and her relationships. Changing her hair changed how she approached all of them.
By turns rapturous, rueful, and riotous, this wise and funny book charts the story of one woman’s way to shake it up, change it all, and discover something new about herself.

DESCRIPTION:

This is a mystery story that revolves around the kidnapping of a beautiful young woman named Katrina Radha. She is the daughter of a prominent international diplomat. The story takes place primarily in New York City, where Hassan Radha is conducting peace talks at the United Nations.

There is an ironic twist to the mystery in which the reader is fully aware of who the kidnappers are, but the detectives at the FBI are convinced that terrorists are responsible. The story coincides with New York Fashion Week, which draws fashion and photography icons from all over the world. This is truly an international story at several levels. Katrina Radha wants to immerse herself in the fashion world while her father takes his place on the international diplomatic stage.

The two main boroughs of the story are Manhattan and Brooklyn. Jimmy Nolan lives in Brooklyn and comes from the rougher side of town. Tango Cash is a criminal overlord who is based out of the notorious Marcy Housing Projects, which have been home to numerous criminal and gang-related incidents in recent years. There is a dichotomy in play with this story between the international importance of New York City and the everyday criminal underworld that is always looking for opportunistic advantages. Katrina Radha gets caught up at the intersection of these two worlds. Can she be rescued?

Forced to abandon his name, his country and the woman he loves, Frank Kelleher vows to one day return. But what awaits him when he does?

Guilty of a crime he didn’t commit, IRA soldier Frank Kelleher flees through the streets of war-torn Ireland with both the British and the Irish Republican Army trying to put a bullet in his head. He makes his way to America under an assumed name and with a forged passport, as the war in Ireland rages on. Settling in a new land, he finds he can’t let go of his past. Haunted by the fiancée he was forced to leave behind, by the deaths of three friends at his own hand, and by the country he was forced to abandon, Frank struggles to make his way in 1920s New York.

As much as he can’t let go of Ireland, he finds that Ireland can’t let go of him–and his past has a way of finding him, thousands of miles and an ocean away. He dreams of going home, but knows that it could get him killed. Then an anonymous letter brings news about his fiancée Kathleen and he realizes that he no longer has a choice. A cease-fire is declared and Frank sails home with dreams of finding Kathleen, putting his past behind him, and starting a new life.

When he arrives, he learns that the Ireland he was hoping to find–a united people finally free–was only a dream. With British soldiers withdrawing, long-standing feuds resurface, and Ireland is pushed to the brink of civil war. As tensions mount, he also learns that his sins will not be easily forgiven, and that he and Kathleen will never be safe until he clears his name.
If the looming war doesn’t kill him, trying to right the wrongs of his past just might.
