DESCRIPTION:

Lyla Blake Ward’s How to Succeed at Aging Without Really Dying is a wry, witty, and wise collection of essays about living in a world of bubble packs you can’t open, electronics you can’t turn on, polls you’re not deemed worthy of taking, and expiration dates you can only hope don’t apply to you. Most of all, it’s about the difficulties of staying on the planet when it’s spinning out of control.

While taking a humorous look at health, grandparenthood, computers, and social issues, How to Succeed… answers such pressing questions as: What brand of yogurt guarantees you will live to 110? Can older people really shop online, or is the “submit order” button visible only to users under 30? And how many pixels does it take to win your grandchild’s affection?

As we get older, we can whine or complain about our losses–memory, muscles, and mobility–or we can roll with the paunches. This book rolls.

Chayton Lacroix was tolerating his life in Coyote Creek, Idaho as a hospital janitor and lifetime caretaker to his chronically sick mother–until everything is interrupted by the arrival of a new neighbor across the street. Southern, sassy, and full of questions that no one ever dare ask, Molly McGraw turns Chayton’s world–and heart–upside down.

Together, Chayton and Molly will both learn the value of family, the darkness of prejudice, and that no matter what their circumstances were before, they are meant to make the ultimate stand in this quiet little town that has been asleep for far too long.

#1 Bestseller in Erotic Suspense

***This book will leave you breathlessly saying, “What the fuck.” You’ve been warned…enjoy.***

When you lose the one person who grounds your existence, your whole world changes.

In life, it is said that everything happens for a reason. If that’s true, how can you explain death? Especially when it happens to someone so young, so beautiful, and so innocent? My name is Bain Adams, and I struggle with these thoughts every day. I’ve been through hell and back, somehow surviving the unimaginable. My sister took her life six months ago, and now, what’s left is a shell of the man I once was, a shadow of the person I used to be. Do I miss that life? Absolutely. But I miss her more, every day. I pray time will ease the pain and help my suffering while I search for the answers…but so far, nothing.

Happiness is something I knew so long ago, and now it’s nothing but a faint, distant recollection of the life I once had. My name is Arion LaSalle, and seven months ago my life was shredded to pieces when my fiancé disappeared while deployed. He never…

Just why do humpback whales sing? That’s the question that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording, and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals. Until the extraordinary day when a whale lifts its tail into the air to display a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite me.

Trouble is, Nate’s beginning to wonder if he hasn’t spent just a little too much time in the sun. ‘Cause no one else on his team saw a thing — not his longtime partner, Clay Demodocus; not their saucy young research assistant; not even the spliff-puffing white-boy Rastaman Kona (né Preston Applebaum). But later, when a roll of film returns from the lab missing the crucial tail shot — and his research facility is trashed — Nate realizes something very fishy indeed is going on.

By turns witty, irreverent, fascinating, puzzling, and surprising, Fluke is Christopher Moore at his outrageous best.

RUNAWAY TWINS

Book 1 in the Runaway Twins series

LITERARY CLASSICS GOLD AWARD WINNER

“Oh, my gosh, I love these kids! When they were hiding in the Bitterroot Mountains, I felt like I was right there with them.”

“Cult leader wants twins for his child brides, his double portion from God…polygamy raises its ugly head.”

Beautiful preteen twins Rachel and Janie Lemon are desperate to avoid the fate of their older sister Mary, who at thirteen was forced to marry the polygamous Prophet of Sheba Hill.

Their determination leads to an aborted escape attempt, and the cult leader sends the girls to a retraining center deep in Montana’s Bitterroot Mountains. Justin Patrick, an openly rebellious twelve-year-old boy who has been dragged into the cult by his aunt, is sent along with them.

Justin and the twins plan an escape in mid-winter through the Bitterroots. Justin’s father and uncle (who were both killed in an avalanche) trained him as a survivalist, and he assures the girls that the Bitterroots are not as dangerous as the Alaskan wilderness where he grew up.

Their adventures in the mountains include searches for food, shelter, water, and warmth–all…

DESCRIPTION:

Shoddy science, sketchy politics, and shady special interests have shaped American dietary recommendations–and destroyed our nation’s health–over recent decades. The phrase “death by food pyramid” isn’t shock-value sensationalism, but the tragic consequence of following federal advice and corporate manipulation in pursuit of health. In Death by Food Pyramid, Denise Minger exposes the forces that overrode common sense and solid science to launch a pyramid phenomenon that bled far beyond US borders to taint the eating habits of the entire developed world. Minger explores how generations of flawed pyramids and plates endure as part of the national consciousness, and how the “one-size-fits-all” diet mentality these icons convey pushes us deeper into the throes of obesity and disease. Regardless of whether you’re an omnivore or vegan, research junkie or science-phobe, health novice or seasoned dieter, Death by Food Pyramid will reframe your understanding of nutritional science–and inspire you to take your health, and your future, into your own hands.

You can choose to be healthier.

Why this detox diet for body and mind can protect you from the assaults of modern living?

A cleansing diet that detoxes at the cellular level helps you:

- Boost your immune system on a long-term basis.

- Lose weight.

- Reduce pain and inflammation significantly.

The ancients knew that it was good to regularly purify our body by dieting or fasting. The religions have even made this one of their cornerstones. But what is left of it today?

Nowadays however, more than any other time, our bodies are subject to constant aggressions found in the air, water, and food, as well as on a psychological level (repeated stress). Our bodies endlessly accumulate toxins, without being able to eliminate them….or not sufficiently.

And if this generalized “clogging” would be the well-known breeding-ground of our civilization’s disease? This is a plausible hypothesis that has been taken over by more and more doctors and researchers from all the countries; they have been alarmed by the exponential expansion of this scourge.

The Spring diet is a well-known diet and certainly the most efficient detox diet. This will…
