DESCRIPTION:

In the summer of 1967, at the age of four, Tess received two things; a baby sister and the nickname Sister Girl. Neither of which she wanted. Life had been perfect before baby Grace came into their lives. Sure, sometimes Mama got mad at Daddy or Daddy got mad at Mama, but most days Tess enjoyed a regular routine. Eating her cereal while sitting on the floor in her underpants, watching morning cartoons, or visiting with Mrs. Gardner next door was enough to keep her happy. She didn’t see why anything needed to change, but as Mama always said, “Life moves forward and you need to move with it or you’ll get swept away.”

This humorous coming of age novel by Jonna Ivin takes the reader on a journey through the late 60′s into the early 80′s. You’ll fall in love with Sister Girl as she manages to survive a world where grownups teach her how to nail clothes to the floor, hustle money at the track, and play with matches. All the while she manages the overwhelming responsibility of being the big sister to Grace (an increasingly odd child who barks at strangers).

Stories that inspire, entertain, and make you laugh ’til you pee. Plus martinis! And not just any-old-martinis–these ones were designed just for moms!

These tales of Wonder, Woe and WTF?! share a little glimpse into the lives of other moms, who are a lot like you.

So shake up an easy-to-make martini, put your feet up (quickly, before the kids find you) and join us on our journey as we toast to the many clink-worthy moments that motherhood brings.

Then there’s Namine, an elf in a different realm who is secretly tasked with a mission that could destroy their already dying kingdom if she should fail. She has the weight of the world on her shoulders, but the one thing she didn’t plan for threatens to ruin it all – falling in love.

Senior assistant state attorney Sandra Giancone goes up against Tampa’s best defenders, seeking justice for the people. Known for her unflappable manner and dedication to her career, Sandra surprises her friend Rocky Delgado when she unwittingly reveals a submissive side of her personality that matches perfectly with the big chief of detectives’ tendency toward sexual dominance. Friends . . . lovers . . . can they find the sort of lifetime commitment neither of them had anticipated? Rocky must show Sandra that submission doesn’t mean relinquishing her independence, and that their LOVE GAMES can grow stronger as time goes on.

They must revisit old hurts, listen to what they couldn’t say at the time, and decide whether the remnants of their deep, committed love can breach the chasm that has kept them alone and lonely.

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.

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…

After the last few years, the last few months, Eric has nothing left: nothing but the house in Miami, his memories, and now the puppy.

DESCRIPTION:

“A relentless Southern classic–

“From gypsies to Jezebels, mules to monkeys and everything in between, the author crafts a rich slate of Flannery O’Connor-esque characters. You cannot help but find yourself pulling for them all, even the mean, low-down drunks and the whores. Make no mistake however, Queenie’s is not a sappy coming of age story. Ms. Dixie fearlessly pulls no punches. I cannot wait to see what this original voice comes up with next. ”

“Burn’s language is palpably evocative of the period–you could vividly imagine the scenes in sepia, peopled by those long-ago characters that now only exist as memory.”

“Burns writes with a relaxed, leisurely cadence with confidence in her own literary powers. She effectively simulates the feel and mood of the South, as well as the hustle and bustle of the city–something about the writing, not the plot, that reminds me so much of Harper Lee’s classic `To Kill a Mockingbird.’

“Burn’s compelling narrative subtly shifts in tone and texture according to the changes in time, and this is one of the qualities in her writing that makes me hope she actually writes more, and soon.”

DESCRIPTION:

Award winning short story collection that captures pivotal moments–of childhood, adolescence, parenthood, and beyond–in the under-appreciated world of women. Disparate decades, genders, and narrative voices woven together by themes of sex, death, guilt, social prejudice.

And love, always love.

A girl discovers a fear of heights as her parents’ marriage unravels; a thirty-something venture fund manager frets over his daughter’s paternity; an orphan whose hands kill whatever they touch is accused of homophobia; a suicidal daycare worker has a very bad day; a mother of two can only bear to consider abortion in the second person; the wife of a retirement-aged professor finds him unconscious near his computer. The 14 stories of The Meaning Of Children speak to all who–though aware the world can be a very dark place–can’t help but long for redemption.

Winner of the David Adams Richards Prize; Top 10 List of the CBC – Scotiabank Giller Prize Readers’ Choice Contest, and many others.

A keen, incisive vision into the hidden world of children as well as intimate knowledge of the secret spaces that exist between the everyday events of life. A work with a brilliant sense of story…Magical, and so refreshing for me to read. I absolutely loved it and I hope it goes on to do marvelous things. Yours is a luminous talent.
~JoAnne Soper-Cook, Author and Judge, 2010 David Adams Richards Prize

Loved your book; read it in one sitting. Each [story] is either told by a child, or about a child. And it’s interesting because I think depending on the age of the person reading it, you relate to different ones. But especially to feminists, growing up with it, wrestling with our beliefs, and whether it worked out or not… a lot of women in this book are trapped. We were trapped by what we were brought up to believe. And then we’re trapped by the marriages we find ourselves in, and the children we have…But on the other hand, each story ends with a certain resolve. There’s that sense of okay this is my situation, but. And that’s what the meaning of children is. It’s about hope. It’s about the future.
~Mutsumi Takahashi, Anchor, CTV News Montreal

A collection of 14 short stories which covers the range of experience from the point of view of children, mums, and also aging parents as well. It’s all there in this lovely little book, short stories about life in a family that might just resemble yours. I wanted to congratulate you on the publication of this book and I hope it goes far far afield for you. A wonderful gift for mother’s day, perhaps more long lived than the usual cut flowers.
~Anne Lagacé Dowson, CJAD Radio journalist

This isn’t the invented childhood of imagination and wonderment…[here] children both corrupt and redeem: each other, family relationships and the female body.
~Katie Hewitt, The Globe & Mail http://bit.ly/ex4zD8

Akerman holds up our greatest fears, not to dwell on them, but to marvel at our commitment to life, especially to passing it on to others.
~Anne Chudobiak, The Montreal Gazette, Edmonton Journal, and Regina Leader Post

Haunting and powerfully emotive, drawing on the subtleties of childhood, youth and parenthood that undermine us in strange and unexpected ways. Your writing is polished and mature, something I am always in awe of and why I got into publishing to begin with.
~Meghan Macdonald, Transatlantic Literary Agency

Counter-intuitive to the title, for me these stories resonate with the sad truth of being a grownup. Life is that damn hard and just-under-the-surface tension saturates our existence. But the kids, they know what’s going on…Akerman nails that sorrow, highlights it with unexpected humour, credits our resilience and almost never skips a beat.
~Chris Benjamin, Author of Drive-by Saviours, on Goodreads (4 stars)

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 adventure tale of Viking raids, ill-fated thralls, noble kings and their sons, and friendship and love. But, above all else, a tale of unforgivable betrayal and the ever-present desire for revenge…

The life of Eadwulf, ten-year old son of the Mercian king, is changed forever when his family is betrayed to the Danes by his treacherous uncle. In a Danish raid, his father is killed, his mother raped, and along with his tutor and childhood friend, Eadwulf is captured and taken to the Danish lands to be sold as a slave.

As a thrall in Jarl Ragnar’s village, Eadwulf’s life is hard, his days unbearably long. But on the return of Bjorn from his summer raids, his life greatly improves. Under the protective wing of the jarl’s firstborn, Eadwulf spends the next few years sailing to places he’d never even dreamed of, trading and raiding. And although still a thrall, he becomes a well-respected member of Bjorn’s closely knit crew. But through it all, the smouldering desire for revenge on those who destroyed his family refuses to abate.

Eadwulf’s story plays out against the backdrop of events unfolding in Wessex in the face of escalating Danish raids. Alfred, the youngest son of the Wessex king, faces family tragedies from an early age, losing first his mother, then his beloved sister when she is married to the new Mercian king – Eadwulf’s uncle. At his father’s court and the successive courts of his three elder brothers, he learns the weighty art of kingship. And, like Eadwulf, he learns the harshest lesson of all…that a trusted kinsman can so easily turn traitor.

DESCRIPTION:

Forget all you know.

History hides the secret.

An International Amazon #1 Bestseller in Kindle Thriller and Mystery

Running for her life, carrying a secret with the potential to change what it means to be human, Holly Reilly calls the only person she knows with the skills to keep her alive: her estranged husband Gabriel.

Caught between two deadly adversaries, Holly and Gabe are drawn into a secret, centuries-old conflict, one poised to spill into the modern world, threatening chaos and bloodshed.

A breathless blend of action and mystery, faith and fanaticism, Vessel exposes an unwritten history stretching back to the Crusades, medieval Europe and feudal Japan as it races to its final explosive conclusion.

What Amazon verified purchasers are saying -

- Heart stopping, thrilling & utterly fantastic.

- This author is quickly becoming one of my favourites. He is a master at story crafting, reeling in readers, and plot twists.

- Lots of history in this book that made me review my knowledge of past ages. Killer ending!

- My ideal read is an intelligently written, action packed thriller with historical details thrown in the mix, and Vessel did not disappoint… Vessel brings the excitement of history and intrigue into one can’t-put-down page turner.

- Plenty of action, suspense, and lots of thrills.

- Grade A. I happen to be a huge fan of medieval and action/suspense tales. This story incorporates both themes.

- Terrific book. I had time to start a book, but like an argument better make sure you have time to finish it. Absolute cliff hanger, in spots literally but throughout with twists and turns.

- It has drama and danger. It has suspense and surprises. There’s a hint of romance, religious musings and a heap of revenge. Fighting, fear, family, friendship, feuds.

- I loved this story, the phrasing, the unrelenting pace, the scope…

- By chapter two I was hooked. The book took an unexpected turn that covered the crusades and Templar Knights, from east to west, right to the current time. It was action packed right up to the end.

- John Bowen is one talented man! I loved “Where the dead walk” and even though “Vessel” is very different from that story, I loved it too.

- nice injection of history, fantasy, love story. The pace started off well and gained momentum. Very action-filled ending.

- I loved that the novel was fast paced from the very beginning, the characters were interesting, and there was even a bit of romance. The lead female is a strong, smart woman, not some boring ditzy girl (thank you).

- In a word – Brilliant! Exceptionally well written… Full of action, danger, a little history mixed with fantasy, and a beautiful love story.

- a wicked fast paced historical action thriller and so, so consuming. I recommend it to anyone, literally anyone. It’s a super fun, well-written read and hey, ya just might learn something along the way.

- I was too caught up in the historical intrigue and action scenes to consider the deeper meanings until it was all woven together at the end.

- Holly and Gabe, get caught up in this secret conflict and must risk their lives to try to keep the Vessel from falling into the wrong hands. There is something for everyone in this book – lots of action, medieval history, secret societies, epic gun fights – truly an exciting read that I didn’t want to put down!

- Gripped from the start and so not what I was expecting at all. This book has it all… Action, from the start until the finish its go, go, GO! Car chases, explosions, guts, gore, the lot!! Conspiracy, loved this part, getting to know the secrets…

- The best indie novel I have read from Amazon yet.

For readers who enjoy fast paced thrillers, Mystery, Pulp Thrillers, Conspiracy Thrillers, Action & adventure, Supernatural, Historical Thrillers, and Technothrillers.
