Humphrey Was Here is about how one carries on after the death of a pet that means the world to them. It is an emotional and cathartic story of grieving and recovery that will deeply touch any dog lover.

Category: Non Fiction / Education

 

 

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

Simple educational principles written in everyday language
Suitable for parents, teachers and educators

The aim of the book is to provide parents and educators with simple educational principles written in everyday language. Some theories have been included for better understanding, and examples given from real life. Simple ideas and exercises are given to shape parenting skills.

This book is definitely suitable for young parents who are just starting their family but also for more seasoned parents who are facing the challenges of parenting today. The educational principals presented are also suitable for teachers and educators and can greatly contribute to improving the classroom environment, helping them succeed in the tremendous job that they have taken on themselves.

It’s worth keeping this book handy, to look through from time to time in order to refresh your memory. From my experience I have seen that reviewing the material before giving a lecture or lesson gives me an advantage when teaching or parenting.

˃˃˃ The three pillars

The three pillars of education are the foundation for developing all interpersonal relationships, starting from infancy through adult relationships with spouses, friends, colleagues and employer ”” employee relations. In all cases the principles remain the same. Efficient meaningful communication requires good listening skills and the ability to provide emotional acceptance. There is a need for limits and boundaries and appropriate displays of authority. On the one hand the authoritativeness cannot be too soft or feeble but on the other, shouldn’t be too stringent or lacking in sensitivity. To complete the picture we need the pillar of significance and meaning. This pillar helps us become significant figures in the eyes of others and challenges us to live fulfilling meaningful lives.
Remember, using good listening skills, presenting clear stable boundaries and being in the eyes of our children, significant figures who educate towards meaning in life, will certainly lead us to a better quality of family life, improve our interpersonal relationships and allow our children to be nurtured in a better healthier way.

Strong Happy Family: Unexpected Advice from an Ivy League Mom of Ten , by Donna Baer, is regularly $4.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars based on 38 customer reviews.

Category: Non-Fiction

 

 

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

Strong Happy Family answers questions like:
• How do you feed them all?
• How do get them to do what you say?
• How do you handle the holidays?
• How do you get through a miscarriage?
• How do you give your kids a sense of meaning and purpose?
• What do you do for struggling learners?
In my peculiar vernacular, “Strong Happy Family” does not mean that the kids don’t argue (they do) or that I don’t ever have down days (I do) or that the house is always picked up (it’s not).

What I mean by a Strong Happy Family is one in which each member behaves honorably, pursues interests heartily, and knows unquestioningly that he or she is loved deeply. A Strong Happy Family is not quiet, but it is peaceful. It is not sterile, but it is orderly. It is not silly, but it is funny. It’s a place where kids are secure enough to go off the beaten track, but thoughtful enough to travel there without annoying others. A Strong Happy Family values ideas and people, not possessions and entertainment.

And a Strong Happy Family can be any size.

Simple Riches is Book Three of That Second Chance Series. (These are stand-alone books tied together by a common theme–belief in the beauty of that second chance.)

Alexandra “Alex” Chamberlain is a big city girl who knows nothing about close-knit families, sibling rivalry, or receiving an unsolicited opinion in the name of family. She’s been raised by an aunt and uncle who’ve provided her with a wealthy lifestyle and a fancy education, but have withheld what she craved most–love and acceptance. Her uncle has taught her to disregard everything but the bottom line on a balance sheet and she’ll do anything to earn his approval. She prides herself on excelling at her job which is selecting small towns to buy, flatten, and replace with luxury resorts.

When Alex decides to investigate Restalline, Pennsylvania, as a potential site for the next resort, she enters the town under the guise of a researcher gathering information for a documentary. Her uncle wants this project badly, and she’s not going to disappointment him.

This town should be like all the others. Only it isn’t. This town has the Androviches, a family who values hard work, honesty, and doing the right thing. And this town has Nick Androvich, the town doctor with a battered heart who doesn’t quite trust her, but can’t deny the mutual attraction.

Oh, but it’s going to get messy when the truth about Alex’s real purpose for being in Restalline sneaks out…and the truth always does. But fear not, the town is not going to sit by quietly and watch this meant-to-be-together couple lose their happily ever after…

CONTACT, by AFN CLARKE, is regularly $3.99 but has been discounted to just $1.99 today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars based on 34 customer reviews.

Category: Memoirs and Biographies

 

 

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

This new expanded edition of AFN Clarke’s bestselling and controversial book CONTACT is a raw, visceral, “no-holds-barred” account of combat from one of the men we paid to kill. When first published it caused a furor for its devastating honesty and chilling revelations.

Clarke vividly recounts his experiences of two tours in Northern Ireland (in Belfast and Crossmaglen) as a Platoon Commander with Britain’s elite Parachute Regiment during the blood soaked 1970’s. Soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan comment on how relevant the book still is today, as the dangers, political agendas and religious roots underlying the conflict are eerily and heartbreakingly similar to their own more recent experiences.

Clarke takes us to heart of the action. We feel what it’s like to live each day with senses on high alert, waiting to be ripped apart by the accuracy of a sniper or a well-hidden bomb. We enter the private world of soldiers ordered to hold the lines in an ancient quarrel they have little affinity for, but whose consequences are deadly. We experience their emotions, fear, courage, humor, bravado and the anguish of death.

This expanded edition continues from where the original version ended, revealing the untold nightmare Clarke lived through having nearly died, with half his insides missing, suffering from PTSD and being expected to return to a “normal life”. A story of the scars of war that affect generations. Of heartache, courage and hope for peace.

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

The quiet town of Cypress, Mississippi is turned upside down when a former citizen, Raven Sawyer, returns for a funeral. Raven’s fictional novel goes viral when the town folk realize that she’s the author, and soon they’re thinking that her book is not fiction but truth. Every little dirty detail is revealed in her book and has the people of Cypress wagging their tongues and shaking their heads at a few of the upper-class citizens and—the Sheriff.
All Raven wants is to get through the funeral and go back to New York, but Sheriff Cal Rayburn can’t allow her to leave after she discovers and turns over evidence that may be connected to a double homicide that he’s investigating. At least, that’s the excuse he’s giving her, and he’ll go to any length to keep her in Cypress until he can make her believe that the affair, that she thinks he had six years ago, never happened.

When more dead bodies turn up, Cal feels they’re connected to the double homicide, but with the evidence he has, he can’t make a connection. He’s left with more questions than answers. He’s told that Raven’s novel may have answers to questions that could help with his investigation, but what it reveals is more than what he wants to know.

Famous in a Small Town is book one of An Entering Southern Country Novel trilogy. It has murder, lies, fiction, and truth—and more twists and turns than the back roads of northwestern Mississippi. Enter at your own risk.

Widowed for the second time at age thirty-one Katherine Parr falls deeply for the dashing courtier Thomas Seymour and hopes at last to marry for love. However, obliged to return to court, she attracts the attentions of the ailing, egotistical, and dangerously powerful Henry VIII, who dispatches his love rival, Seymour, to the Continent. No one is in a position to refuse a royal proposal so, haunted by the fates of his previous wives—two executions, two annulments, one death in childbirth—Katherine must wed Henry and become his sixth queen.

Katherine has to employ all her instincts to navigate the treachery of the court, drawing a tight circle of women around her, including her stepdaughter, Meg, traumatized by events from their past that are shrouded in secrecy, and their loyal servant Dot, who knows and sees more than she understands. With the Catholic faction on the rise once more, reformers being burned for heresy, and those close to the king vying for position, Katherine’s survival seems unlikely.

Ivy and Martha are not ordinary friends, Ivy is changeling with supernatural powers—or is she?

Martha is incredibly unpopular. She’s overweight, buck-toothed, and shy. Ivy is an outcast. Her family lives on the outskirts of town amid a field of derelict orchards. But starting in second grade, the girls form a bond that allows them to take control of their own lives.

It all begins when Ivy tells Martha that she is no ordinary girl: She claims she’s a changeling, switched with the real Ivy at birth. With the strength of Ivy’s friendship, Martha becomes more confident and sure of herself. And through their bond, Ivy gains the normalcy she needs, away from life with her tumultuous family. When the two girls play, they enter an elaborate fantasy world all their own. But when the real world threatens to split them apart, their friendship becomes more important than ever.

Enter the world of the Dark Dynasties . . .

For centuries, shapeshifting vampire Tynan MacGillivray has prowled the night as an outcast, valued only for his ferocious hunting skills. When a feud among the immortals escalates into all-out war, he is ordered by his ruthless queen to locate a Seer-a human woman with a special gift-who can secure victory for their clan. Ty’s search leads him to a quiet New England town, but once he has the Seer in his grasp, her touch awakens within him a hunger like he’s never known . . .

Lily Quinn has always been different. Since childhood, she’s had vivid nightmares and an eerie sixth sense. When a sexy, silver-eyed stranger demands her help, Lily plunges into a new world of danger and sensuality. With Ty, she discovers sizzling passions she cannot deny and powers she cannot control. Soon, it is clear that Lily is much more than a Seer-she holds the key to ancient secrets and unthinkable destruction. But will a vampire’s vow of eternal protection stop these evil forces . . . or unleash her dark destiny?

Here is the Unlearning Liberty book description from the Amazon website:

 

 

For over a generation, shocking cases of censorship at America’s colleges and universities have taught students the wrong lessons about living in a free society. Drawing on a decade of experience battling for freedom of speech on campus, First Amendment lawyer Greg Lukianoff reveals how higher education fails to teach students to become critical thinkers: by stifling open debate, our campuses are supercharging ideological divisions, promoting groupthink, and encouraging an unscholarly certainty about complex issues.

Lukianoff walks readers through the life of a modern-day college student, from orientation to the end of freshman year. Through this lens, he describes startling violations of free speech rights: a student in Indiana punished for publicly reading a book, a student in Georgia expelled for a pro-environment collage he posted on Facebook, students at Yale banned from putting an F. Scott Fitzgerald quote on a T shirt, and students across the country corralled into tiny “free speech zones” when they wanted to express their views.

But Lukianoff goes further, demonstrating how this culture of censorship is bleeding into the larger society. As he explores public controversies involving Juan Williams, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Maher, Richard Dawkins, Larry Summers—even Dave Barry and Jon Stewart—Lukianoff paints a stark picture of our ability as a nation to discuss important issues rationally. Unlearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate illuminates how intolerance for dissent and debate on today’s campus threatens the freedom of every citizen and makes us all just a little bit dumber.

Drew and Libby Sullivan have spent the past six years building the perfect life together. They have a beautiful home, flourishing careers, and they’re finally ready to take the plunge into parenthood. Well, almost. Despite the endless prodding from family, friends, and even strangers, there still seems to be something holding the couple back from starting a family. Perhaps that’s why they decide to take the advice of Libby’s older sister and make a list of everything they want to do before they have a baby. Making their baby bucket list, or as they call it, “The Buggy List”, buys them just a little more time to be Drew and Libby, who sleep in until noon on Saturdays and eat Chinese takeout for dinner on the couch. Besides, it gives Libby the opportunity to pull straight-laced Drew out of his comfort zone and do something fun for once; like go undercover as singles to a speed dating event with their friend, Tom; or finally take the honeymoon they never had. Drew and Libby each write down five items that they must complete before having a baby. But what starts out as a little harmless fun quickly becomes more than this couple bargained for. When secrets, little white lies, and competing desires threaten to pull them apart for good, Libby and Drew must rediscover why they fell in love in the first place.

Here is the There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish book description from the Amazon website:

 

 

Ahoy there, me hearties! This is a fun new take on “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.” The colorful and zany cartoon art does a phenomenal job of capturing the absurdity and hilarity of this outrageous spin-off. A harum-scarum old pirate encounters misfortune at sea as he ingests one unpalatable item after another. From a whole fish to a chest of gold to a large ship, these unappetizing items lead to the untimely demise of this sea-worn picaroon. The text is engaging and melodic. Boys and girls alike will love to sing each comical new verse. Anticipation builds as each item introduced grows larger and larger and children eagerly await the dramatic ending. The digitally created illustrations are boldly colorful and delightful. Children will linger on each page, not wanting to miss any details. Although many collections contain numerous versions of this tale, this one is modern and highly appealing. The cumulative and repetitive nature of the story is great for actively involving the youngest readers/listeners.

The world of Robin Hobb’s Rain Wilds series has been praised by Booklist as “one of the most gripping settings in modern fantasy,” and Publishers Weekly called the Rain Wilds books “a meticulously realized fantasy tale” and “a welcome addition to contemporary dragon lore.”

Homeschool High School Transcript Solutions for Every Situation!!
Turn Your Child’s Unique Circumstances to Advantage!
Although they stress a lot of parents out, transcripts are just a one-page overview of your child’s academic record. Any student who plans to go to college needs a transcript, and even students who don’t have college plans will benefit from having a record of their high school courses. A homeschool transcript can demonstrate your student’s strengths, depth, and individuality. It can combine all the wonderful educational experiences of high school into one centralized location on paper.
But how do you make a transcript if your child:
• is really gifted and advanced? Who will believe all those A’s?
• doesn’t have enough credits—or too many—to graduate?
• earned a really bad grade in high school or took 5 years to graduate?
• unschooled for most of high school and didn’t take any tests?
• had some major medical/emotional issues that left gaps in their schooling?

Here’s Why You Need This Book:
Whether you homeschool traditionally or your homeschool is an oddball mix of traditional and eclectic, core subjects and delight directed learning, you will learn exactly how to capture all of those experiences on a transcript that colleges will love! If you faced challenges during homeschool because of some unique situation or experience, you’ll learn how to represent that on your transcript and explain it to the colleges.
“Creating Transcripts for Your Unique Child,” is the next ebook in the HomeScholar’s Coffee Break Books series. Designed especially for parents who don’t want to spend hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school, this series combines Lee’s practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop!
Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable, each book in the series will give parents the tools they need to tackle the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.

One photo changes everything…

A mortifying incident in her youth has shaken sense into Cara Byrne. No more bad-boys. No more getting arrested.

So what if he doesn’t exactly light her fire – surely passion is overrated?

When her friend since childhood, Ethan Quinn, storms back into the small Irish village he left to pursue a career as a Hollywood action hero, she’s stunned to discover she’s as susceptible to his lethal charm as every woman in the world. And when a compromising photograph floods the media of them in a clinch, her almost fiancé reveals his true colours, CarEthan starts trending on twitter, and she loses her job, could anyone blame her if she accepts his invitation to hide out at his Malibu beach house?

Ethan loves women, but never lets his girlfriends into his heart. He’s failed at being there in the past, and won’t put his heart on the line for anyone, ever again. But Cara’s a different matter – and when passionate attraction is added to his friendship with the one person he’s always confided in, he’s thrown for a loop. Cara’s lost everything, and like it or not, he’s responsible. There’s no fighting the attraction that blazes between them – but when the month long affair is over, will he ever be able to let her go?

Pick up four of the latest hot fantasy titles from bestselling, critically-acclaimed authors in this one great collection and save big! This Ultimate Fantasy Box Set features complete novels from authors Daniel Arenson, Jason Letts, D.P. Prior, and M.S. Verish. Discover new lands and intense action in each one!

The Scars of Ambition by Jason Letts

Lowell Bracken had complete control. His empire, his ruthless executives, his family’s legacy, his wife, his children, they all had a part to play in the near omnipotent control he exerted in Cumeria. But a freak attack exposed how tenuous that control really is, and Lowell scrambles to preserve it, discovering he is only playing a small part in larger, darker schemes for control.

From the shadows, mysterious and disturbing threats disrupt the already-turbulent business landscape in Cumeria. When blood is spilled, the fight for survival becomes more than just a euphemism for going out of business, and the Brackens’ struggles to retain order might be the only thing keeping all of Cumeria from plunging into chaos.

The Nameless Dwarf: The Ant-Man of Malfen by D.P. Prior

Nils Fargin reckons he’s a big fish in a little pond. After all, he’s son of a guildmaster, ain’t he? But when he arrives at the brigand settlements in the Outlands, he may be a tad out of his depth.

It had seemed a straight forward enough task, leading a dwarf with no name to the wizard Jankson Brau. Plan was to get some information about a bunch of dwarves who’d headed through the Malfen Pass.

Trouble is, the dwarves are the survivors of the recent massacre at the ravine city, Arx Gravis, and Nils’s companion, the Nameless Dwarf, is none other than the butcher they are fleeing from.

Like it or not, Nils’s path takes him to the bandit town of Malfen, where the Nameless Dwarf must confront its terrifying ruler, Shent, the Ant-Man.

Dawning by M.S. Verish

He has no name but is known by many. He is a Demon, surrounded by the chaos inherent in his own shadowy nature, and it is the magic of Shadow that is killing him. Unwilling to accept his imminent demise, the nameless Demon embarks on a mission to find the witches who may hold his cure. He discovers the alternative to his death may be a greater price than he is willing to accept, and what is acceptance in a world full of Humans?

In the company of the immortal prisoner he has liberated, the Demon struggles to survive, understand who he is, and shape a future that once seemed impossible. It is, for better or worse, a new beginning, a Dawning in this foreign world.

A Legacy of Light by Daniel Arenson

The people of Requiem, an ancient kingdom, can grow wings and scales, breathe fire, and take flight as dragons. For years, Requiem’s holy stars have blessed the kingdom with light and magic. But now a darkness falls.

General Cadigus, traitor to the crown, has captured the throne. Bloodthirsty and cruel, he rules with an iron fist. He crushes his own people under his heel. He burns all foreign lands. The noble kingdom of Requiem fades; a dark empire rises.

In the wilderness, a small light kindles. Rebellion brews. The rebels are haggard, outnumbered, and desperate. They hide in forests and ruins. They fight for the memory of Old Requiem, for a legacy of light.

The Resistance is small, but its cry is loud: “The tyrant must fall.”

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

ROMANCE IS THE BEST PAIN-KILLER…

Cupid’s working overtime in the unlikely venue of N.O. Drugs, where plus-sized beauty Ciana Jambon works with dread-locked pharmacy student Lennon Israel, who’s so handsome, so meticulous he just has to be gay. But she can’t help herself—she’s got the crush of the century. Unbeknownst to her, Lennon’s carrying his own torch. Family problems distract both of them (alongside the true New Orleans oddballs who scuffle between the Seasonal Specials and Depends aisles) until tragedy leaves Ciana reeling. Lennon wonders if there’s a murderer in her clan, and he’s pretty sure he’s the only one who can help. What woman can resist a knight in shining armor?

Friedmann’s witty portrayal of Ciana’s and Lennon’s families from hell, as well as the deliciously dysfunctional relatives of their wise co-worker, Vendetta Greene, will have you laughing out loud as well as nodding in recognition.

WARNING: This is anything but a formula romance. But it is a great love story—and the perfect prescription for anyone feeling tired, rundown, and depressed from reading the same old thing over and over again. The only side effect is a slight watering of the eyes as the first tender shoots of love start to bud and blossom.

BAD SPIRITS (Books 1-5): Kate Jones is on the run with a backpack full of money, intent on finding her way back to the United States from Mexico. Unfortunately, a ruthless drug lord named Salazar is just as intent on finding her, retrieving his stolen money, and making her pay for ever having left him. Is there anyone she can trust?

DEAD OF WINTER: Kate Jones is hiding out in small town Alaska when she witnesses an execution-style murder. Convinced the killers are Salazar’s men and desperate to stop them from finding her, she reports the crime to local law enforcement, hoping to put them off her trail so she can escape.

DEATH RITES: When Kate has to leave Alaska (and Sam) behind, she runs to the last place she remembers feeling safe: the North Shore of Oahu. Against her better judgment, she re-establishes old connections, and soon faces a new problem in Alek, a gifted carver and avid surfer.

Then a brutal murder and theft of a priceless artifact from a museum is discovered, and Kate’s thrown into the middle of what appears to be a violent ancient sect come to life. Her only chance of survival is to rely on her wits…

…and the ancient gods of Hawaii.

TOURING FOR DEATH: Kate Jones is hiding out from her shady past driving jeep tours through the rugged high desert of northern Arizona, determined to stop looking over her shoulder and find peace from her mistake of a gun-toting, former life. Testifying against a Mexican drug lord and a dirty DEA agent didn’t turn out to be a life enhancing choice and she’s been on the move ever since.

Now, five years have passed with no sign of trouble and Kate’s finally starting to believe she’s safe. Her current goal is to make enough money so she can get lost in the tropics when the tourist trade dies off. Unfortunately, it’s the tourists that are dying off and she may be next.

Their marriage of convenience is meant to protect her and Clay doesn’t plan on being hitched for long to the tempting beauty. But the honeymoon sure feels real to him…

Sassy Marisol is used to doing whatever she wants–and right now her plan is to shake up the hot detective’s hard-edged demeanor. But the fun turns to danger when a mystery stalker bent on marrying her marks her as his prey. Temporarily becoming Clay’s wife seems like a practical way to thwart the stalker.

Gabriela only volunteered for the hospital’s charity bachelorette auction to benefit a cause dear to her heart. Now she’s reeling from the hot doctor’s bid of fifteen thousand dollars for a weekend date with her! She’s not sure what Dr. Handsome has in mind, but the smoldering look in his eyes is unmistakable…

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

Take a Journey Through Africa and See It With Your Soul

Ever had the desire to just leave everything you know behind and set off on an adventure? Philén Naidu did just that! Aged 23 he dropped out of university, left family and friends behind and set off to discover his true potential.

Naidu allows us to join him in his mid-life crisis as he journeys into an Africa that few of us get to truly experience. There’s no new camera and bug spray in his luggage, as he packs a backpack and heads north from his comfortable suburban South African upbringing into the wild unknown.

It’s a movingly honest account of his time spent traveling and living amongst the people of rural Zambia, his westernized way of thinking constantly challenged as he becomes accustomed to a new way of life.

Whether he’s bumping into wild rhino at night, sitting in the shade of mango trees with the villagers, sharing in their ‘local brew’, or learning the intricacies of smuggling items across the border for business, what he discovers along the way about life and himself is so clear and simple, yet so difficult to apply.

It’s a journey that will have you thinking about everything – where your food comes from and with whom you share it, to how you’d go about fighting off competitors to get the prized liver from a recently culled elephant.
