The DREAM which made her life a NIGHTMARE.

A string of murders dating back to 1987 and in all that time only one witness and she doesn’t even know she’s a witness!

A strange recurring dream is haunting you; you see a psychologist and a psychic as your try to figure it out. Then……it hits you; the memory floods back! Suddenly everything you thought you knew about yourself, your family and your past is cast into doubt.

Someone you love is a KILLER.

But who will believe you? He is popular, successful, charming and credible. The police will say that you have no evidence. People will call you mad, paranoid or vindictive.

You select your allies with great care, as there are few you dare trust in this duplicitous new world.

You set about assembling the evidence: secretively and urgently, before he strikes again. However, he gets wind of your suspicions and this time when he kills, it’s someone very close to you, someone who knows the truth.

Suddenly you realise that you are up against more than just him, he has eminent and influential friends and the scales of justice are rigged against you.

What would you do? What will Gaby do?

A book that will make you wonder if you can ever trust anyone again and the safe answer…..is NO.

The first book in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic romance series: THE ENDING SERIES.

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, “they” thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family…they’re all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them–with the rest of the world–but I didn’t. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I’d ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O’Connor, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We’ve all had to start over. I’ve been stripped of my home, my dreams…all that is me. I’m someone else now–broken and changed. Other survivors’ memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won’t let them consume me. I can’t. My name is Zoe Cartwright, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

We’ve been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing–we’ll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we’re strong…we’re survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.

And more than anything, we have to find each other.

Natalia Lanska, formidable Polish pianist, is dead. No one is really sorrowing, except maybe her granddaughter Hania, whose own career as a concert artist never took off due to a terrible weight problem. Feeling unwanted, Hania arrives in Warsaw for the funeral hoping for a warm welcome from her relatives. Instead, they saddle her with their appalling children, decamp, and refuse to return. Hania’s situation is at first improved and then complicated when a neighbor–the very correct, very austere descendant of an old Polish family–asks her to proofread an amateur history project. Hania sets to work with a will, and Pan Doctor Prince Konstanty Radzimoyski is surprised when his ideas get more editing than he bargained for. Typing pages of the past, rediscovering her native city, and playing the piano all contribute to taking Hania’s mind off her problems, but can’t change her awareness that the children need help and that her growing attachment to her employer will only give her pain. The summer Hania spends between love, hostility, and the weight of history tests her resourcefulness, but her fresh ideas and readiness to carry on brighten the lives of her new acquaintances. Still, no one, least of all Hania herself, expects that her beautiful qualities will make Konstanty forget her figure and other excess baggage. This book contains a history of Poland in a nutshell and is about seeing beyond the conventions.

If you love to love, and laugh, then you’ll enjoy this read. The experiences you’ll discover inside are my own, so don’t you go judgin’ me, now. Live your own life, and I’ll offer you the same courtesy. I just want you to enjoy the days you have left on this rock, and wake up with a story now and then. If you don’t have at least a few good ones, then what was the point? Here’s how I did it, and will continue to do so, until I slide sideways and barrel roll into a casket.

Category: Historical Mystery

In this sequel to Maids of Misfortune, it is the fall of 1879 and Annie Fuller, a young San Francisco widow, has a problem. Despite her growing financial success as the clairvoyant Madam Sibyl, Annie doesn’t believe in the astrology and palmistry her clients think are the basis for her advice.

Kathleen Hennessey, Annie Fuller’s young Irish maid, has a plan. When her mistress is asked to expose a fraudulent trance medium, Arabella Frampton, Kathleen is determined to assist in the investigation, just like the Pinkerton detectives she has read about in the dime novels.

Nate Dawson, up-and-coming San Francisco lawyer, has a dilemma. He wants to marry the unconventional Annie Fuller, but he doesn’t feel he can reveal his true feelings until he has a way to make enough money to support her.

In Uneasy Spirits, this cozy, historical mystery of romantic suspense, Annie delves into the intriguing world of 19th century spiritualism, encountering true believers and naïve dupes, clever frauds and unexplained supernatural phenomena.

She will soon find there are as many secrets as there are spirits swirling around the Frampton séance table. Some of those secrets will threaten the foundation of her career as Madam Sibyl and the future of her relationship with Nate Dawson, and, in time, they will threaten her very life itself.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Vampyres don’t exist. They absolutely do not exist.

At least I didn’t think they did ‘til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead?

Now I’m a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren’t bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe. On the downside, I’m stuck with an obscenely profane Guardian Angel who looks like Oprah and a Fairy Fighting Coach who’s teaching me to annihilate like the Terminator.

To complicate matters, my libido has increased to Vampyric proportions and my attraction to a hotter than Satan’s underpants killer rogue Vampyre is not only dangerous . . . it’s possibly deadly. For real dead. Permanent death isn’t on my agenda. Avoiding him is my only option. Of course, since he thinks I’m his, it’s easier said than done. Like THAT’S not enough to deal with, all the other Vampyres think I’m some sort of Chosen One.

Holy Hell, if I’m in charge of saving an entire race of blood suckers, the Undead are in for one hell of a ride.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN THE WORLD IS TRYING TO KILL HER…

That would be the Rev. Errol Jacomine, crazy as a fox that just ate a loon, and more dangerous than a cell full of serial killers. She’s Detective Skip Langdon, the New Orleans cop who’s twice smashed his criminal endeavors, yet each time he’s managed to slip away. Now he’s mad. In both senses of the word. And he has the connections to have her killed—or worse, those she loves.

After one near-miss and several nasty threats, Skip is driven by fear that she’ll lose the people dearest to her. Despite finding herself disgraced in her own home town (seems Jacomine knows how to frame as well as kill), she goes on the hunt for the kind of maniac with a gift for conning people and the extreme makeover to make it work.

THREE ANGRY WOMEN, EACH ONE DISSED, SCORNED, AND HELL-BENT…

But by now Jacomine’s madness has escalated to the point that he’s finally gone too far with too many people. Before it’s over, more than one person’s stalking him, and some are women feeling as mean as their quarry. If Langdon doesn’t get there first, there’ll be a bloodbath. If she does, only one person will walk away—and Jacomine’s as lucky as he’s ruthless.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The peoples of the world have been in conflict for as long as time can remember. It is easy to feel cynical about any prospect of lasting peace in the world when we do nothing more than recycle past mistakes. What if we took another path? Could it be we are more alike than we realize? Maybe our disillusionment only comes from a lack of perspective. As we rise to higher ground, the borders between us begin to fade. From up here, we can see a shared, conflicted past, but also a common origin. And we can see a path that leads to a united and peaceful future.

The Nightowls and the Sunflowers were as different as night and day. They had been in conflict for as long as time could tell. They had nothing in common and each feared the other. The Sunflowers prayed to the God of the sun. The Nightowls prayed to the God of the moon. What could possibly give any hope of reconciliation? The belief and courage of a young girl sets in motion a series of events that just might change the course of history for the Sunflowers and the Nightowls. Could the key to their destiny be ours as well?

No, No, No, No, No, Yes. Insights From a Creative Journey, by Gideon Amichay, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars based on 33 customer reviews.

Category: Business & Money / Motivational

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

No is not the end…
But rather an essential tool for direction, motivation and innovation.

No. It is a word that every CEO, entrepreneur and creative professional has confronted. It is a word that both novices and seasoned professionals dread. It is a word that can easily seem like death to a dream.

And yet it is also a word that can point in the right direction. It is a word that motivates us to do something differently, try something else, get better, innovate, keep going. No is a word that looms over every business person’s, innovator’s, and artist’s life. And yet the word is universally met with trepidation and fear because the value of being told No is so little understood.

˃˃˃ No is a facilitator

In No, No, No, No, No, Yes. Insights From A Creative Journey, award winning creator of visionary ad campaigns (Cannes Lions, Clios); ad exec (the Shalmor Avnon Amichay/Y&R agency); cartoonist (The New Yorker); speaker (TEDx); and teacher (School of Visual Arts) Gideon Amichay demonstrates that No is not a barrier to success it s a facilitator. No is not the end, but rather an essential tool for direction, motivation and innovation.

Based on Amichay s best-selling book in Israel (published by Gordon Books in 2011) and 2013 TEDx talk of the same name, No, No, No, No, No, Yes takes the reader on an illustrated journey of the author’s own lifetime confrontation, negotiation and relationship with No . Walking the reader through critical No s in his own 25 year career pitching cartoons to the New Yorker, risky ad campaign concepts as head of one of Israel s biggest ad agencies, impossible outdoor ad installations — Amichay reveals the wisdom that No rarely ends with an exclamation point.

˃˃˃ No ends with a comma

Rather, Amichay demonstrates that No usually ends with a comma:
No comma, we don’t have the time. No comma, we don’t have the budget. No comma, can we see another option? By discovering which No comma he was confronting, Amichay shows how No s in fact led him to eventual Yes s — including the waiting, the rejections, and the revisions and demonstrates that No, forces us to reexamine, to explore, to rethink, to change directions, to get better.

˃˃˃ No can be the best answer to get

In No, No, No, No, No, Yes Amichay shares the essential revelation that sometimes No can be the best answer to get.

Through illuminating anecdotes from his own illustrious career running the gamut between business and the arts, Gideon Amichay demonstrates unequivocally that No’s, whether from colleagues, from clients, from life, or from within have great power, and are simply directions on the map to Yes.

Authoritative, funny, whimsical, wise, and pragmatic, No, No, No, No, No, Yes. Insights From A Creative Journey. is the essential companion for every executive, innovator and artist to navigate the unavoidable odyssey of No in order to find the eventual Yes.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In CrowdFunding: The Next Big Thing, money-raising expert Gary Spirer reveals the secrets of raising capital in the digital age. He outlines the ins and outs of the five major capital-raising strategies, including how the current Kickstarter type crowdfunding differs from crowdfunding equity. The new world of crowdfunding equity can be hard to navigate due to numerous regulations, and the challenge of keeping crowds engaged. Crowdfunding start-ups is a platform made possible thanks to the recent JOBS Act. Now even the small guy can invest in early stage companies and potentially strike it rich with the crowdfunding platform and the investing and business-building tools provided in CrowdFunding. Spirer guides readers through the seven steps that any start-up business can employ to ensure success in raising money and building a business. With a great idea and design, a start-up needs to thoroughly and repeatedly research and pretest its product in the marketplace until the ideal niche is narrowed down in order to attract the most customers. Spirer points out that too many entrepreneurs believe that if you build a field of dreams they will come. He shows in detail how to drive traffic, get them to come to your field of dreams, and stay. In CrowdFunding, entrepreneurs will learn about successful pitches and how to pitch concepts in person or on crowdfunding websites. They will learn how and when to use one or more of the five money-raising strategies in the digital age. According to Spirer, “The perfect pitch comes from refining and distilling core ideas over and over.” They will also learn about the new SEC regulations imposed to protect investors. Spirer lays out all of the exciting new platforms for marketing a product or service start-up interactively via the infinite possibilities and fluctuations of social media, mobile, and the web. He explains how to work with the savvy consumer of today, who expects to be part of the marketing conversation. Spirer’s book shares the secrets that venture capitalists have employed to identify potential blockbuster investments and how the same approaches can be deployed in analyzing crowdfunding opportunities.

With her two humans, James and Amy, Kiwi finds mysteries and adventures, dealing with catnappings, jewel thieves, giant rats, time travel, haunted houses, Father Christmas, pyramids and more. The fun stories contain positive messages about loyalty, friendship, honesty, bullying and the power of standing together.

Book 1 opens on one dark night. Amy cannot sleep and she looks out of the window into the garden to see her cat, Kiwi, transfixed by the moon, which is glowing brightly like a cat’s claw. Waking her brother, James, Amy suggests they follow Kiwi to see where she goes… whether it involves a hunt for mice or something else. Little do they know that with a flick of her tail, Kiwi is going to magically change the children into kittens and lead them on the adventure of their lives to a land they never knew existed in their wildest dreams. In the blue-lit world of Cat City, the budding detectives help Inspector Furrball to investigate the mysterious catnapping of Mr Katz and find out what happened to Madame Purrfect.

The books contain illustrations by Nikki McBroom.

Scorching hot romance…
Shakespearean actress Kate Kingsley is portraying one of the three witches in Macbeth when she playfully reads the palm of a sexy stranger. But when you pretend to be a witch, you risk attracting a witch-hunter. Daniel Haggarty turns out to be a wealthy, fraud-exposing journalist with little tolerance for Kate’s psychic mother, her geeky computer-gaming friends, or her reincarnated cat.
While protecting her ghost-whisperer mom from the skeptical Daniel, Kate is irresistibly drawn by his dark sensuality. As the fires of love threaten to consume them both, it is no longer obvious who is practicing magic and who is under a spell.
A sexy new series
Welcome to Book 1 of Linda Barlow’s contemporary romance series, Night Games. The series is about a group of college friends who have stayed in touch since graduation via an online game that one of them created.
The books are each complete and separate, but in some respects they build upon one another. Characters are introduced in the first novel, Blazing Nights, who appear again in later books. While it’s possible to read the stories in any order, readers will probably have the most fun if they read them sequentially.
Each of these books was published previously in some form, but they have been completely rewritten. Blazing Nights was inspired by Linda’s classic romance (long out of print), Bewitched.

Learn the secrets of accelerating your journey toward success by better understanding yourself and how others perceive you. You — According to Them will offer practical steps to help you leverage the perceptions of a great reputation into bottom-line success. If you’ve ever worked in an organization of any size, you’ve probably seen it: the talented geniuses with all the right credentials who don’t really seem to be going anywhere in their chosen careers. Sometimes that “talented genius” is us, and we are hard-pressed to understand what’s blocking our ability to advance. In this book, Sara Canaday draws on her years of corporate experience and research to not only explain WHY smart people can end up with stalled careers, but also HOW they can fix the problems (or avoid them in the future). The timing for this insight couldn’t be better, given today’s increasingly competitive work environment. You — According to Them deals directly with the blind spots and perception disconnects we all face as we navigate our own sometimes-winding career paths. Sara identifies nine different “syndromes” using very distinct characters and case studies from her 20 years of work on the subject: Don’t Fence Me In Intellectual Snob Frozen Compass Dust in My Wind No Crying in Baseball Safety Patrol Faulty Volume Control Passion Pistol Perpetual Doer In each chapter, Sara describes one of these blind spots in detail, along with a list of “quick fixes” for fast response. She also closes the chapter with a long-term action plan and specific exercises to guide readers through the process for conquering that particular syndrome. “Once we understand the power of our personal reputations,” Sara says, “we can begin to see how others’ perceptions of us can impact our ability to compete in the marketplace — for jobs, for raises and for promotions.”

The Saffron Falcon, a new release by bestselling author J.E. Hopkins, is just $2.99 today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars based on 6 customer reviews.

Category: Fantasy

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

NEW! VOLUME TWO OF TRANSITION MAGIC

The Saffron Falcon, a dark fantasy-thriller, takes place in our world in the near future. Children can use Transition magic for one month as they approach puberty, but they must use certain ritual words and the magic must be unique. If it doesn’t meet these requirements, the child doesn’t make it to adulthood. Few children attempt to use their power because the danger is too great, and most who do use it, die.

An archeologist unearths a second-century codex that eliminates Transition’s uniqueness requirement. Any child using the ancient verse would have unlimited power. The artifact is stolen by Pakistan’s feared security apparatus, the ISI, and the theft concealed by a brutal bombing.

Department of Transition Security agent John Benoit is ordered to follow the meager clues and take any action necessary to protect the US from unrestrained magic. John and his partner, Stony Hill–a fierce, pierced, purple-haired agent half his age–plunge into the case. Their mission is personal; a friend and leader was killed in the bomb blast.

Also ensnared in the ancient codex’s web is the son of a Kalash tribal elder. The boy, in Transition and abandoned in Islamabad, stumbles onto the secret of the codex. He flees the ISI, seeking to return to his mountain home. Afraid, bedeviled at every step, he finds hope in the fleeting glimpse of falcons, burnished by the setting sun and ranging far from the high cliffs over his valley.

John and Stony’s investigation leads them from the shattered quiet of Georgetown streets to the rugged foothills of the Himalayas, where evil and magic collide, the future of civilization at stake.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

When outspoken atheist Corwin Holiday dies an untimely but heroic death, he’s assigned a chain-smoking, alcoholic angel as his defense attorney in the trial to decide the fate of his soul.

Today many cast Christianity aside, not in favor of another faith, but in favor of no faith. We go off to school or out into the world, and we learn that reality is godless and that free thinking means secular thinking. But must faith entail an end to asking questions? Should not the Author of Reason be able to answer the challenge of reason?

Dead & Godless is a smart and suspenseful afterlife adventure that explores the roots of truth, justice and courage. In these pages awaits a quest that spans universes, where the stakes are higher than life and death, and where Christianity’s sharp edges aren’t shied away from, because we’re not called to be nice. We’re called to be heroes.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Neuroscience research is producing an almost constant stream of new discoveries that are unlocking the secrets of how our brains work. For those of us directly involved in this research of the human brain, it is a very exciting time.

However, very few people outside of the neuroscience community understand these discoveries well enough to take advantage of them or apply them to their own lives in a way that gets meaningful results.

I see a need for simple, clear, accessible explanations of how to apply brain-based practices to greatly improve how we work and conduct business, so that everyone can benefit from use these discoveries. A few years ago, I was invited to write a series of articles for publication, with exactly that goal. This book is a collection of those articles.

In addition to being supported by recent research of the human brain in the Western world, the articles in this book are also influenced by my knowledge of mindfulness and other ancient practices from the Eastern world. Interestingly, much of the recent neuroscience research confirms that many of these ancient Eastern practices do result in greatly improved brain functioning. The East-West synthesis evident in these articles reflects my many years of work and study on both sides of the Pacific Ocean, and my lifelong interest in how to improve the human brain.

When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best.

When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn’t the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

Claire Cavenaugh has fallen in love for the first time in her life. As her wedding day approaches, she prepares to face her harsh, judgmental older sister and their self-absorbed mother. It is the first time they have been together in more than two decades. Over the course of a hot Pacific Northwest summer, these three women who believe they have nothing in common will try to become what they never were: a family.

Tender, funny, bittersweet, and wonderfully moving, Between Sisters celebrates the joys and heartaches that can only be shared by sisters, the mistakes made in the name of love and the healing power of new beginnings–all beautifully told by acclaimed author Kristin Hannah.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

There is a lot of discussion these days about whether or not the economy is improving. Here are two facts: The economy has been very, very bad and the only way it is going to improve for you is if you take control of your situation.

Jt Sather, author of How To Survive When the Bottom Drops Out, has ridden the economic roller coaster for twenty years. He’s experienced the highs of a multi-million dollar construction business and the lows of squatting in a friend’s foreclosed mansion. He doesn’t base his future on Wall Street but on Main Street.

In his debut book, he tells the brutal truth, but with humor and hope; reviewers have described it as listening to a great storyteller share his life over a couple of beers. No matter where you are in the Economic Recovery, you’ll find anecdotes and advice you can use today, tomorrow, and whenever the bottom drops out of your life.

A Message From the Author:

I’m not a psychologist, social worker, guru, nor mad genius (that last one’s debatable.) I’m just a guy who has lived many lives, and learned how to enjoy them. This book was written for the purpose of entertainment with an enlightening undertone. What you take from it is entirely up to you. This is how I’ve survived the turbulence I’ve encountered throughout my flight, and the advice given is tongue in cheek, with some true heart sprinkled on top. If you love to love, and laugh, then you’ll enjoy this read. The experiences you’ll discover inside are my own, so don’t you go judgin’ me, now. Live your own life, and I’ll offer you the same courtesy. I just want you to enjoy the days you have left on this rock, and wake up with a story now and then. If you don’t have at least a few good ones, then what was the point? Here’s how I did it, and will continue to do so, until I slide sideways and barrel roll into a casket.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

County Sheriff Lester P. Morrison wasn’t buying the popular theory that a missing teenage girl was “just another runaway.” When his investigation revealed Melissa Parker was last seen in front of a roadside bar in the company of drunken men, the Sheriff’s suspicions soared to new heights.

In fact, Melissa couldn’t run anywhere. She’d been assaulted, locked in a tornado shelter—a fraidy hole—with no food, no water, and left to die. Her struggles to escape took on a new urgency as Melissa realized she was not alone in that terrifying darkness. The survival clock was ticking.
