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

Homely, awkward farm boy Jode Lintwich longs for adventure and greatness: two things which can’t be had in his humble village and seldom happen to anyone like himself. But desperation can change anyone’s destiny-and Jode is desperate enough to try.

A visit to a local witch, a few coins, and an accidental promise transforms Jode into something beyond his wildest imaginings; and also causes him to be cast out of his own village for good. A wanderer turned loose in the world, Jode must learn the truth about the magic upon him and embrace a destiny greater than any he ever imagined. If he wants to survive, he must find the key to his ultimate happiness, and escape the danger inflicted upon him by the two-sided gift of the witch’s magic.

From a pirate ship to the sands of the desert, from a mercenary knight to a monarch’s deceptive pawn, the adventures of Jode-turned-Handsome-Jack are as a varied as his namesake’s tales … and as far from his true fate as he could possibly imagine.

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

A NEW FEMALE SLEUTH YOU’LL LOVE—JUST DON’T MESS WITH HER!

Meet Detective Nurse Gina Mazzio: She’s feisty, determined, tenacious, and all ballsy Italian ex-Bronxite. She might remind you a bit of Sandra Bullock when Sandra’s in FBI mode. Detective’s not her real title, RN is, though it might as well be Guardian Angel. Because you know how scary nurses can be; and how compassionate. Gina’s gone into investigative mode because her patients are in danger. And everyone at her fancy San Francisco hospital’s blowing it off like everything’s normal.

Carl Chapman, a young man with an excellent prognosis, has already died–and Gina knows he shouldn’t have. Another patient’s acting weird and desperate; a third, a teen-ager, has actually run away. Gina soon learns Carl’s cancer treatment’s gone missing, in fact finds out her patients are being subjected to a form of blackmail so diabolical Hanibal Lecter could have dreamed it up.

And murdered if they don’t pay up.

They’re blasted with chemotherapy and every other toxic poison available to save their lives. Most days they’re so run down they’re more dead than alive. But there’s one chance for survival—an experimental treatment. In turn, each will be infused with his or her own treated bone marrow – frozen, secure in the hospital’s storage vaults.

Only maybe not so secure. Because then comes the note: “We have your marrow…pay $50,000 or die now!”

Before it’s over, Gina will be stalked, threatened, and nearly killed. This is an action-packed but shocking, take-no-prisoners tale of medical suspense, definitely not for the faint-hearted. But fans of the more hard-boiled medical thrillers (and also of Patricia Cornwell) will eat it up! As well as lovers of, strong women sleuths, hospital mysteries, and all medical fiction, especially fans of Tess Gerritsen, Carolyn McCray, Eileen Dreyer, Lisa Genova, and Robin Cook.

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

“Blood, fire and towers of smoke”

His expressive blue eyes full of warmth were the secret weapon of Abraham Levy and another secret he had kept in his heart for years.

In 1937 he immigrated to Palestine with part of his family and stayed there for a year and a half. As an eight year old child, he ran on the golden sands of Tel-Aviv and became an Israeli in whose blood, flowed the legend of the ancient hero Bar-Cochba.

The cruelty of destiny took him back to Europe right before the war against his will. All the rest of his family, who had tasted the taste of Paradise in Palestine, was murdered in the ghetto and Abraham went through the Inferno of 6 concentration camps at the age of 12: R.A.B. Lager, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Buna, Dora, Nord-Hausen and Bergen-Belzen.

He received the power to overcome all tribulations from the sun, the sea breeze and the streets of Tel-Aviv, from his friends in ‘Tachkemoni School’ and the words he repeated to himself over and over again: ‘I am as brave as an Israeli soldier, I am a fighter and I will never surrender. I am like Bar-Kochvah, I look the lion in the eyes and defeat him. I am from Palestine and I am strong!’

From the moment when he was torn from his mother’s arms in the Zychlin Ghetto until he reached the coast of The Holy Land once more, he passed a journey full of obstacles but he founded a glorious family. ‘Only here everything belongs to us, the blue sea, the sky, the mountains, the oranges and the clean air. Here is the land where Elijah the Prophet went up to Heaven and Bar-Kochvah rode the lion.’

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

A young adult paranormal romance series.
An epic journey.
If the Seventine are released, will anyone survive?

Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own.

In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had. But each morning reality returns. She could just cry. But she won’t. Tears don’t change a damn thing.

Then without any warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything does change. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it is time to return home. To First World; a land of unimagined beauty.

Abigail and Lucy find themselves thrust from New York and into another world. Day one: traversing through an unforgiving wilderness. Yeah, because that sort of thing just happens every day. Luckily an unexpected savior arrives; the man from her dream-world. Brace is six-and-a-half feet of gorgeous perfectness, wrapped in an arrogance like no other. Unable to trust his assistance, and unsure which of her instincts to follow – kiss him or punch him in the mouth – Abigail eventually accepts his help to find her family.

And what a family. Enter Josian, her father, larger than life and apparently not even human. He is Walker, a planet-less race revered as gods, causing mischief and mayhem through-out this star-system. Unfortunately, there is no time for a cozy reunion, since her return to First World is the unknown catalyst, setting forth a chain of events which could spell disaster for all worlds.

First World is book one in the Walker Saga, a seven-book paranormal fantasy series.

The FIRST offbeat mystery in the TUBBY DUBONNET series, by Anthony- and Edgar-nominated author Tony Dunbar.

If a gym bag of cash fell into your hands, what would you do to keep it?

A simple man with a refined palate, maverick New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet has a penchant for fishing, Old Fashioneds, off-track betting, and fighting evil while passing a good time.

His clients are all renegades from the asylum (aka Orleans Parish), including a transvestite entertainer, a buxom deadbeat blonde, a doctor who refers his own patients to a malpractice lawyer, and a Mardi Gras reveler who drives a float shaped like a giant crawfish pot. He also has his hands full with an ex-wife and three teenage daughters, who are experts in the art of wrapping Tubby around their little fingers. And somehow, between work and family, Tubby finds time to sample the highs and lows of idiosyncratic Crescent City cuisine, from trout meuniere amandine and French roast coffee with chicory to shrimp po-boys and homemade pecan pralines.

Tubby’s new client is Darryl Alvarez, the manager of a local nightclub who’s been caught unloading marijuana from a shrimp boat. At their first meeting, Darryl entrusts Tubby with an ordinary-looking blue gym bag. But after Darryl’s unfortunate demise, Tubby realizes he must tighten his grasp on the gym bag — and its million-dollar contents.

Tubby can’t just give up the cash. But if he gets caught, he’ll be in jail. And if the wrong people catch him, he’ll wish he was.

With detectives deaf to his claims that no crime has been committed, Cal’s impulsive and secretive nature threatens to alienate even those who could help him, as the ensuing scandal brings to light issues that suggest that his secrets are darker and his past more blemished than he is willing to admit.

A brand new epic fantasy adventure!
Orphan, thief, healer, demon slayer…..What else will she become?

Sapphyre has always known she has some innate magical ability, but being an orphan growing up on the streets, she is both unaware of where it comes from or how to control it. For the last two winters she has served ale and food in the Dragon’s Flagon and until this evening, it has been rather uneventful. The stranger with the yellow eyes has accumulated a large stack of coin at the dice game and has attracted much attention. Sapphyre notices that with each winning roll, what looks like a tattoo of a cat’s eye lights up on the man’s neck. Glancing around the table, she is shocked to see that no one else can see it.

Sapphyre learns the stranger’s name, and listens to his tale the following day. Ashcon explains that he is a runestar, a defender of the light and the stars. He has runes, not tattoos, all over his body, that enable him certain powers. The runes can only be seen when he activates them, and even then only by extremely powerful practitioners of magic. Ashcon asks Sapphyre to join him and his companion Skken in the search for a man named Sorenthor, who will be able to determine why she can see his runes and from where her magic hails.

The first book in this epic fantasy series follows Sapphyre and her companions as they attempt to reach Sorenthor’s Library in the hopes of finding answers for Sapphyre, as to her true heritage. The meeting between Ashcon and Sapphyre has put into play ancient prophecies. The followers of the Zagador, the Dark Gods, led by Ashcon’s brother Drak’thonn, are spurred into motion and will stop at nothing to track down and destroy Ashcon and his companions, and plunge the world into Eternal Night.

Purkiss’s job is straightforward. Track down agents of the intelligence services who are taking kickbacks, committing crimes, or otherwise abusing their positions. And bring them to justice.

Straightforward doesn’t mean easy…

After a renegade British former spymaster, Fallon, is sighted in the Baltic city of Tallinn on the eve of a historic summit meeting between the Russian and Estonian presidents, Purkiss is despatched to investigate, and uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to tear Europe, and the world, apart.

But Purkiss has personal reasons for going after Fallon. Four years ago, Fallon was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Purkiss’s fiancée, a murder Purkiss himself witnessed.

Now, in an atmosphere of treachery and sudden violence, as the countdown begins to a potentially catastrophic conflict between Russia and the West, Purkiss must keep his desire for revenge under control for the sake of the world’s – and his own – survival.

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.

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

Lasting Change For Early Quitters, Burnouts, The Unmotivated, And Everyone Else Too

When I decided to start exercising consistently 10 years ago, this is what actually happened:
• I tried “getting motivated.” It worked sometimes.
• I tried setting audacious big goals. I almost always failed them.
• I tried to make changes last. They didn’t.

Like most people who try to change and fail, I assumed that I was the problem.

Then one afternoon–after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise–I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This “stupid idea” wasn’t supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day).

I had to consider that maybe I wasn’t the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as “the way to change” in countless books and blogs.

My suspicions were correct.

Is There A Scientific Explanation For This?
As I sought understanding, I found a plethora of scientific studies that had answers, with nobody to interpret them correctly. Based on the science–which you’ll find peppered throughout Mini Habits–we’ve been doing it all wrong.

You can succeed without the guilt, intimidation, and repeated failure associated with such strategies as “getting motivated,” New Year’s Resolutions, or even “just doing it.” In fact, you need to stop using those strategies if they aren’t giving you great results.

Most popular strategies don’t work well because they require you to fight against your subconscious brain (a fight not easily won). It’s only when you start playing by your brain’s rules and taking your human limitations seriously–as mini habits show you how to do–that you can achieve lasting change.

What’s A Mini Habit?
A mini habit is a very small positive behavior that you force yourself to do every day; its “too small to fail” nature makes it weightless, deceptively powerful, and a superior habit-building strategy. You will have no choice but to believe in yourself when you’re always moving forward.

The barrier to the first step is so low that even depressed or “stuck” people can find early success and begin to reverse their lives right away. And if you think one push-up a day is too small to matter, I’ve got one heck of a story for you!

Aim For The First Step
They say when you aim for the moon, you’ll land among the stars. Well, that doesn’t make sense, as the moon is closer than the stars. I digress.

The message is that you should aim very high and even if you fall short, you’ll still get somewhere. I’ve found the opposite to be true in regards to productivity and healthy behaviors. When you aim for the moon, you won’t do anything because it’s too far away. But when you aim for the step in front of you, you might keep going and reach the moon.

I’ve used the Mini Habits strategy to get into the best shape of my life, read 10x more books, and write 4x as many words. It started from requiring one push-up from myself every day. How ridiculous is that? Not so ridiculous when you consider the science of the brain, habits, and willpower.

The Mini Habits system works because it’s how our brains are designed to change.

Note: This book isn’t for eliminating bad habits (some principles could be useful for breaking habits). Mini Habits is a strategy to create permanent healthy habits in: exercise, writing, reading, thinking positively, meditating, drinking water, eating healthy foods, etc.

Lasting change won’t happen until you take that first step into a strategy that works. Give Mini Habits a try. You won’t look back.

When he’s on the brink of being sent back to a short, hard life in the mines of Chandris’s ash desert, the changers’ most notable healer offers him an apprenticeship. He can’t miss this opportunity, though it means leaving his ambitious and possessive lover behind. But trouble is brewing. Sylas’s usually peaceful Chesammos race are in revolt, his lover’s people are their hated oppressors, and the shape-changers are caught in the middle. No matter what, Sylas will be seen as a traitor: to his king; to his lover; to his people. As conflict approaches, his loyalties are divided. But will he side with the Chesammos, the shapechangers, or turn aside from both for his lover’s sake?

Traditional fantasy, with a compelling magic system, and complex, relatable characters.

An Israeli woman living in New York has been murdered. She has been raped and butchered; an outrage that ignites a fuse that burns all the way back to Tel Aviv.

Enter FBI Agent Chloe Mather, a hard-charging ex-Marine who has no sympathy for the kind of maggot who could commit such a violent atrocity. A veteran of the war in Afghanistan, she was one of the first woman Marines to be deployed into an active combat area. She struggles with PTSD and the consequences of a fatherless childhood, yet this is a woman who accepts no pity and operates according to a moral code that is second to none. She’ll stop at nothing to find the psychopath responsible for this unspeakable crime. In Secrets of the Kill, Mather and this code will face the ultimate test.

What begins as a challenging homicide becomes more, much more, and Mather is pulled into an investigation that involves the mob, Israeli intelligence, and a radical terrorist faction.

They say that blood is thicker than water but is it thicker than the bonds of patriotism? Mather will ponder this question and many others as she fights to bring an innocent woman’s murderer to justice, and prevent a geopolitical atrocity from taking place on American shores.

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

Are second chances worth the risk?

Is a childhood crush something that can ever be fully realized?

James Hardy has everything he has ever wanted in life. Almost. After years spent in the military, he has opened his own security business and employed both of his younger brothers in a world he not only embraces, but enjoys. He likes the adventure. He likes the excitement. He certainly isn’t looking for anything more — until she walks through his door and changes everything.

Mandy Avery has harbored a crush on James Hardy for as long as she can remember — and her memory stretches far. She goes to the Hardy brothers out of necessity, but as soon as she sees James she realizes that old feelings aren’t so easily shoved to the side.

James wants to keep her safe. No, he needs to keep her safe — even though he isn’t exactly sure why. Someone is trying to hurt her, and that’s not something he can tolerate. She’s grown into the type of woman he’s drawn to, though, despite his own rule that dating clients is forbidden.

Mandy wants to find out who is threatening her, but being around James is more than she can bear. Something in her very being is propelling her into his arms — even though she knows her heart is at risk with every kiss.

James eventually gives in — and immediately regrets his rash actions.
Unfortunately for him, it’s too late. He’s not willing to give her up — and he’s more than ready to die for her if that’s what it takes to keep her safe.

She’s unsure of their future, but Mandy can’t fight his pull. She’s lost — even before he’s ready for her to find him.

When things come to head, will James be able to save the only woman he’s ever really cared about? And will Mandy have enough faith to believe that what he’s offering is real?

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

In the last year the idea that we are spiritual beings and life is spiritual journey is becoming more accepted. As spiritual beings we are whole, perfect and complete…just as we are. This book is a mosaic of women authors who speak from the heart and share their perspective or story on an aspect of being Whole, Perfect and Complete. Each will be a tale of success, or a reflection of the journey and wisdom gained. The expectation is the book will inspire others and energetically uplift not only the readers but the authors.

Deborah Bowman Stevens, Editor of You Are Whole, Perfect and Complete wrote,
“The hardest story to share and especially to write is your own—“You mean put my life out there in black-and-white for everyone to see? Yikes!” But if you knew that your heartbreaks, devastations, rights, wrongs, joys, accomplishments, and your very private spirituality could help even one lost spirit on the brink of a dark, tottering precipice of self-destruction: “Would you do it? Would you bare your soul for all the world to see?” In brief, this is the synopsis of “You are Whole, Perfect, and Complete…Just as You Are” written by 12 distinctly different women, yet gathered in a common cause to show the way to self-realization, self-acceptance, and self-love.

As women, we are faced with unique and pivotal concerns in our lives…especially mature women who have seen the world evolve, but not nearly enough. As little girls we were told to keep certain areas of our lives and feelings secret—“You just don’t talk about those things, dear.” Now in hindsight, we can see globally what those secrets have cost our fellow sisters…and ourselves.

Scream it from the rooftops, mountaintops, the uppermost gateways to the Universe, “I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, AND COMPLETE…JUST AS I AM…IN ALL MY WONDROUS COMPLEXITIES, FLAWS, AND BEAUTY! I HAVE RISEN FROM THE ASHES OF DEVASTATION AND I AM BETTER FOR IT…MY SUFFERINGS AND JOYS HAVE BECOME “ME” AND ALL HAS HAPPENED AS IT WAS SUPPOSED TO…I HAVE CONQUERED AND SO HAVE YOU, EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW IT YET!”

This amazing, emotional, gut-wrenching—yet completely positive—inspiring, uplifting, and joy-filled missive has truly been channeled from the angels and divine beings of the Universe and our Higher Selves. A must-read for women and men to break through the barriers that “WE” allow to hinder our inner beauty and potential.

“Catch the mists that bathe you in mystique; Own the clouds, light and dark, that surround your spirit; Love the sun that glows through you; and Most of all, pass it on to those who cannot yet see.”—Quote by Deborah A. Bowman, editor, on “You are Whole, Perfect, and Complete…Just as You Are”

After her senior year of high school leaves behind nothing but heartache, Olivia Beaumont is sure of this: She’s no stupid girl. She sets out for Winston University, promising herself that she will remain focused on her first and only love – astronomy. But all it takes is cocky sophomore Brax Jenkins and an accidental collision with a football, to throw her entire year off course.

A quick-tempered Southie who escaped the inner city streets of Boston to pitch for Winston, Brax is known to play way more fields than just the baseball diamond. So, when his name is drawn to take part in his fraternity’s hazing dare, Brax eagerly accepts the mission to take Olivia’s virginity. But he doesn’t plan on falling hard for the sweet and sassy Texas girl who sees right through his bad-boy persona.

As Olivia and Brax battle their feelings for each other, echoes of the past year begin to surface. A boy who once turned Olivia’s whole world upside down reappears, and “harmless” pranks wreak havoc. Pretty soon the aspiring astronomer is on the verge of revealing her most difficult, heartbreaking secret. All the while, Brax must wrestle with the irrevocable dare, and Olivia struggles against all logic as she does the one thing only a stupid girl would do: fall in love.

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.

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

Skulking around in the ruins on a planet swarming with treasure hunters, slavers, and bounty hunters isn’t good for one’s health. But Ankari Markovich needs a few archaeological samples for her latest business venture, a venture that might prove lucrative enough to move her family off the impoverished planet where she grew up. Unfortunately, she has no sooner collected her samples than she’s captured by a band of brawny mercenaries. The captain might be handsome, but he’s intent on turning her over to some finance lord who has, for reasons unknown, put a bounty on her head, a ridiculously large one at that. If she can’t figure out a way to escape before she’s delivered to the lord’s home world, she could be forced into a life of indentured servitude—or worse.

Captain Viktor Mandrake doesn’t usually take on piddling bounty hunting gigs, but when his intelligence officer informs him of a criminal on a nearby planet, he decides it wouldn’t hurt to take a shuttle down to collect the woman. But Ankari Markovich is trouble from the start, nearly eluding his elite forces, then fighting and tricking his people left and right. He finds himself admiring her spirit, but according to her warrant, she’s a criminal. The safest thing is to keep her in the brig and ignore her until she can be handed off to the man who wants her.

But the situation grows more complicated when other bounty hunters show up, wanting to claim Ankari for themselves. Thanks to this woman, Viktor’s ship is in danger, his crew members are going missing, and he’s fighting enemies he never asked for in a jungle in the middle of a hurricane. He’s either going to strangle Ankari… or fall in love. Either scenario could get him killed.

Mercenary Instinct is a full-length, stand-alone novel of 90,000 words. It is part of the “Mandrake Company” series of science fiction romance stories and is recommended for readers who enjoy space-based adventure (such as Firefly) and steamy love stories (in the style of Linnea Sinclair).

Harper Kirkpatrick is not what Cameron Bennett expects for the bachelor party in his Savannah mansion. She’s desperate when he sends her home in her cat costume. Jobs are scarce and eviction looms. Former boyfriend Billy took off for California and she’s too proud to head home to Chicago.

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

The simplest, easiest beginning meditation guide you’ll ever see!

Whitney Stewart has had her fair share of experiences worth meditating on. In 2005, she was trapped in downtown New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and helicoptered from the roof of a building with her young son and elderly mother-in-law. For the next five months, she lived in Nantucket and researched her book Marshall: A Nantucket Sea Rescue–she escaped one natural disaster and wrote about another. When she returned home to New Orleans, Ms. Stewart volunteered as a creative writing teacher in the public schools. She discovered that her students suffered from post-Katrina stress. Knowing this, Ms. Stewart began using beginning meditation techniques to teach her students to write about their lives, reduce stress, and relieve anxiety.

A Level III Reiki practitioner then studying Classical Tibetan, she began meditating after she met and interviewed the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet (the subject of her biography, The 14th Dalai Lama) and lived with a Tibetan refugee family in India. She’s trekked with Sir Edmund Hillary in Nepal, interviewed Burma’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi in her Rangoon home, and climbed along China’s Great Wall to research the lives of Deng Xiaoping and Mao Zedong.

Stewart’s straightforward guide to stress relief, anxiety management, and mindfulness makes meditation simple. It covers the basics in a concise thirty-three pages: Why meditation is good for you, how to sit, how to let your mind rest, even what to do if you feel weird or uncomfortable during meditation. Most importantly, it provides sixteen accessible, useful meditations you can easily learn at home.

For ages ten to adult. Note: This is a very short book.

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

A Conspiracy Directing the Affairs of Mankind – A Secret they don’t want you to know – A Truth that will change the World

In 43 AD, Levi ben Cheleph, a Roman customs official, composes a controversial genealogy of Jesus. For the next nineteen centuries, this list becomes one of the most disputed texts of the New Testament and the basis for one of the most important biblical secrets of all time. The 13th Enumeration is the key to that forgotten secret.

Darius Zaridast, CEO of Aquarius Elemental Solutions, is on a quest to destroy those he believes are responsible for the death of his father and the status of his homeland, Persia, as a third-world dictatorship ruled by religious fanatics. Darius finds evidence that this group, which he calls the Order, is also part of a centuries-old conspiracy to keep the secret of the 13th Enumeration. This secret, he learns, is their greatest fear because it is the key to information that could destroy them.

His research into this secretive group of people is compiled in a dossier he calls FILE-13. Darius believes some of history’s most influential men are somehow connected to the secret:

•Sir Isaac Newton, one of the most influential scientists of all time, spent a good portion of his life looking for a hidden biblical code.
•Charles Thomson, one of only two signers of the original Declaration of Independence, was responsible for the most notorious symbols in American history. This symbol, known by only a few, is a key to the secret.
•William Frishmuth, a German chemist and secret agent for Abraham Lincoln, was so valued for his services he was paid two hundred dollars from Abraham Lincoln’s private purse.
•William Colgate of Colgate/Palmolive, one of America’s early entrepreneurs, owned a building which featured an unsolved brick symbol—a symbol which today is known as the “American Da Vinci Code.” This cipher holds the key to the forgotten secret.
•Sir Robert Anderson, commissioner of Scotland Yard during the Ripper murders, almost discovered the secret.

As Darius’s plot for revenge matures, he initiates the most devastating attack in the history of New York’s financial district. With Manhattan Island a ghost town, Darius uses the ensuing events to perpetrate the greatest financial manipulation of all time. Just when he has the world convinced he is its savior, Darius Zarindast destroys his entire corporate empire, causing the largest financial meltdown in history. He has finally realized his revenge. The only bitterness in his cup of retribution is his inability to solve the secret of the 13th Enumeration.

In this battlefield of revenge, conspiracy, and superstition, an archeological discovery is made in Capernaum, Israel—a discovery which will forever change the way the prophecies of the Bible are understood. Zane Harrison, a dig volunteer, and Rachael Neumann, daughter of the director of Israeli Antiquities, unwittingly stumble upon an incredible treasure of artifacts. Their find leads to the rediscovery of the 13th Enumeration. They soon learn their discovery is the key to a mathematical cipher found in the very first chapter of the New Testament, an ancient code which has profound implications regarding the status of Jesus Christ as the biblical Messiah. The unearthing of this ancient secret places them directly in the crosshairs of the Order. Will they be able to share their discovery with the world before the Order destroys the evidence and once again erases all knowledge of the 13th Enumeration from the pages of history?

The 13th Enumeration is a thrilling page-turner which weaves little-known historical and biblical facts into a plot that could have been taken from today’s headlines. The explosive conclusions of this story will leave the secular and Christian reader alike wondering if this is really a work of fiction—or the greatest discovery of our generation.

War correspondent Leo Ericson returns to his hometown of Bluestone Lake, Minnesota, when his parents notify him his young son is having trouble fitting in at school.

But he needs a place for his son, a place where he’ll be with family, while Leo does his job. He’ll stay long enough to get Max settled, then go back to work.

School counselor Trinity Madison watches Leo struggle with his son, trying to overcome the mental barricade she’s erected against the man who sent his son away when he’s perfectly capable of caring for the child. The situation brings about her own unsettled feelings about giving her child up for adoption when she was young. But as she observes Leo’s difficulties, his sacrifices, she softens toward the man.

While he’s in town, he ends up working with some old friends and Trinity on a committee to revitalize Bluestone. The former resort town is struggling and looking for ways to bring tourists back. Leo finds himself charmed, then smitten with the feisty counselor, but will he still love her when he learns her secret?

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

In the future, the Beam network has taken over our lives — but now, it’s developing a life of its own.

The year is 2097. North America has become the North American Union — the only place on Earth not decimated by the environmental catastrophes of the 2020s. To protect citizens during the technological renaissance, the NAU erected the Lattice: an impervious net to keep the so-called “Wild East” at bay. That was when the NAU began to regrow as a cyperpunk utopia … or dystopia, depending on where you stand.

Today, the NAU appears to be divided into two political parties: the socialist Directorate and the capitalist Enterprise. But within secret circles, the true division of NAU power and wealth is more apparent: there is the Lower 99 Percent, who rely on The Beam to entertain and connect the nationwide hive mind … and there is the Beau Monde, who control it.

Meet Micah and Isaac Ryan: Figureheads of power, pawns within a greater game

For the Lower 99, the choice between Enterprise and Directorate is simple. They can choose the security of Directorate: fed, sheltered, and provided-for by the government … but unable to advance beyond their assigned (and modest) station. Or they can choose the potential and risk of Enterprise, where a few entrepreneurs and artists thrive, but many more die in the gutters without a safety net.

Micah heads the Enterprise party, blessed with family wealth that grew from rumored unsavory practices during the dystopian years. Isaac heads the opposing Directorate — just as wealthy, just as enhanced with restricted Beam-interfacing upgrades much better than those widely believed to exist.

But both of the Ryan brothers ultimately serve an inner circle, with strings pulled from high above.

Meet Kai Dreyfuss: A prostitute assassin with aspirations to join the Beau Monde, harboring a cortex full of dangerous secrets.

Kai is eternally young, eternally beautiful, her add-ons suited to her dual careers in pleasure and espionage. Kai would do anything to ascend to the secret club she’s learned is above her pay grade … and her connection to Nicolai Costa (the power behind Isaac Ryan) gives her an unfair advantage.

Meet Leah: A girl with no last name, no past, and a hacker’s mind in the body of a luddite.

Not everyone loves the hyperconnectivity of The Beam, although few are immune to its influence. Leah (young, dreadlocked, with a penchant for disobedience) lives a pair of lives between the Organa settlement that eschews technology and plots to disrupt the network … and her prodigious ability to see behind The Beam’s AI to the intelligence growing within it.

And meet Doc Stahl: A biological upgrades dealer who knows too much.

So far, the Beau Monde has kept its secrets under wraps and the true breadth of its power hidden. But Thomas “Doc” Stahl has stumbled into a place he shouldn’t be and seen things he’s forbidden to see. There are upgrades on the market far superior to those he’s been allowed to sell — and interests out there who are prepared to kill to protect their secrets.

But Shift is coming …

The Enterprise and Directorate parties have always given people an identity … and a “them” to resent so the true power balance can remain hidden. In the past, the chance for citizens to change their party (or stay in the same) for the next six years at Shift has been routine. But this year, the air is different. Riots are blooming. And this Shift promises to be anything but ordinary.

The Beam is part hard science fiction, part political thriller, part heart-pounding cyperpunk adventure, part techno thriller. Science fiction in the footprints of Asimov, where nothing is quite what it seems.

Choose your side. Select your destiny.

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

THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS

In September 2014, Janet Tavakoli asked His Excellency Iyad bin Amin Madani, Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), why criminals from so many different countries and cultures continue to band together in the name of Islam to commit mayhem and murder authorized by the highest levels of Islamic clergy.

He dodged the question.

UNVEILED THREAT is her response based on her personal experiences and study of the roots of terrorism, and what it means for the United States today. Tavakoli exposes the connection between power, religion, money, human rights violations, and politics.

BACKGROUND

In 1978, Janet Tavakoli, a lapsed Catholic of northern European heritage, born and raised in the United States, moved to Iran with her husband and witnessed the Islamic revolution that overthrew the Shah. Fundamentalists imposed their interpretation of sharia law as they destroyed rights of women and children, brutally oppressed and murdered male and female opposition, monopolized wealth, corrupted the courts, and persecuted other religions.

A year later, she left her husband and Iran behind and began her career as a globally renowned financial derivatives expert. She followed the progress of mainstream fundamentalist Islam and the continued funding of terrorism. In 1993, she was in the World Trade Center complex when terrorists detonated a bomb in the parking garage of the North Tower. Since fleeing Iran, finance expert Tavakoli has watched the expansion of fundamentalist Islam and the funding of terrorism.

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

Renowned gastroenterologist and nutritionist explores the dark bowels of leaky gut and its myriad associations with various diseases based on the concept of gut-skin-immune-brain axis. He offers practical strategies based on his decades of clinical experience.

Gut is the largest immune organ spread over surface area of a football field and with a brain of its own comprising of 100 million nerve cells. The intestinal barrier is designed to be our health fortress. However, it is not a wall of concrete.

A microscopic layer of intestinal cells separates the body from hostile fecal environment of trillions of bacteria and toxic substances. The chain fence barrier allows absorption of nutrients while combating bad stuff.

A dysfunctional, leaky fence barrier allows hostile foreign elements access to the body. This may result in a defensive fighting posture of inflammation and immune reactions in gut and other organ systems.

The terms “leaky gut” and “leaky gut syndrome” are not synonymous.

1. What is it that leaks?

2. Where does it leak to?

3. What causes the gut to leak?

4. Are there tests available to check if your gut is leaky?

5. What are the diseases linked to leaky gut?

6. Can leaky gut affect organs beyond our intestines e.g. skin, brain, etc.?

The author dives into the controversies surrounding above questions and provides evidence-based concepts and strategies underlying strengthening intestinal fence and healing damaged barrier.

Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.

The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.

Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.

A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.
