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.

Is It Leaky Gut or Leaky Gut Syndrome, by Anil Minocha, is regularly $9.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Book Part of Kindle Unlimited? Yes

Category: Advice & How-To

 

 

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.

Discover the USA TODAY Bestseller: Morna’s Legacy Series

Includes the first 3 novels in Morna’s Legacy Series, as well as the Christmas novella:

Love Beyond Time (Book 1): Nearly 400 years ago, the Conall clan and their people were murdered in a surprise attack, their castle burned to the ground. In centuries following, archaeologists searched the ruins looking for any evidence of who had caused the untimely demise of the powerful Scottish clan. Efforts were fruitless until a spell put in place by an ancient Conall ancestor finally began to work its magic…

When Bri accompanies her archaeologist mother on a dig in Scotland, they discover a spell room below the castle ruins, and Bri is transported back in time and suddenly married to the castle’s ill-fated Laird. She must work to change the fate of his people, all while trying to find a way to return to her century. With each new day, Bri finds herself falling in love with her new husband. If she finds a spell to bring her home, will she use it? If she stays, will it ultimately mean her own death as well?

Love Beyond Reason (Book 2): It all started with a spell.
Arran Conall lives with the consequences of his foolishness daily, his mistakes guiding him into darkness. He had no way to know that his beloved would fall prey to ancient magic. Now, the only woman to ever give pause to his philandering ways lives centuries ahead of him while still holding on to his heart. Now, he must try to live without her and marries another.

His love for Blaire haunts him. With every breath, he prays that she will be able to feel his love across time…

Born in the seventeenth century, Blaire MacChristy lives each day adjusting to the challenges of modern life. Magic brought her here, but heartbreak keeps her from using the magic to travel back to her home. When visitors from her past arrive asking her to return to the life she’d known before, Blaire takes a chance on love. Will fate find a way to mend their broken hearts by bringing them together once again? Even if it does, will they be able to stop the darkness that is coming for them both?

A Conall Christmas: A Novella (Book 2.5): Christmas is approaching, and Adelle is determined to make it the best one Conall Castle has ever seen, but loneliness haunts her. Love for her daughter sent her into the past, but she’d not expected the isolation she would feel. She finds that her current age seems much older in the seventeenth century than it did in the twenty-first and resigns herself to the fact that she will remain single for the rest of her days. At least until an unexpected visitor arrives.

Kasey Lane is having a bad week.

Understatement.

Her idea of success never involved losing her job, man, and apartment in 24-hours. Now, with nowhere to go and no way to pay for it anyway, Kasey decides it’s time for a fresh start, which means a new apartment, a new career, and…no men.

But as a magnet for ridiculousness and absurd brushes with the law, her start goes from fresh to stale in record time. It doesn’t help that Mr. Wrong keeps showing up during her adventures gone awry and taking over. Now, as Kasey plans her way to independence she has to decide if the only path to success is going it alone…or if maybe a partner in crime can make the journey sweeter.

There’s nothing more dangerous to a woman’s heart than a man who is single, straight, loves his kid, and doesn’t kiss and tell . . .

The first book in USA Today Bestselling Author Barbara Bretton’s acclaimed Paradise Point series

Maddy Bainbridge left her Jersey Shore home town right after high school, determined to put as many miles as possible between herself and her many meddling relatives.

Now she’s back in Paradise Point — an unemployed single mother whose only option is to accept her mother Rose’s offer of a job and a place to live.

But it doesn’t take Maddy long to discover that the things about your mother that made you crazy at 17 make you even crazier at 32. Rose’s critical comments bring out Maddy’s inner teenager and by the beginning of December, the end is in sight. Maddy would stay there at the Candlelight Inn, her mother’s popular B&B, through Christmas for her daughter Hannah’s sake, but once the New Year rolled around, she’d be out of there.

And then fate, in the form of an online auction battle over a Russian samovar that looks like Aladdin’s lamp, brings home-town hero Aidan O’Malley into her life and suddenly Maddy begins to believe anything is possible.

A child’s dreams, an old woman’s memories, the joys and heartaches that come with being part of a family, the thrill of new love and the deep comfort of love that stood the test of time — it all comes together that one special holiday season when even the most battered hearts open just wide enough to let a miracle or two slip through.

Piper Anderson has been given a fresh start in the picturesque town of Edenville, North Carolina. But her plans of settling into a normal life are derailed when she witnesses a prominent judge in her community committing a violent assault. Running from her own past and fueled by a passion to make the judge answer for his crimes, Piper is forced to decide if she’ll play by the rules or achieve justice in her own way.

Complicating things further, Piper finds herself fighting a powerful attraction to rookie cop, Bobby Wright. Although she’s increasingly enamored with Bobby, his staunch belief in the justice system is in stark contrast to her own. She may not share his opinions about the effectiveness of the law, but she certainly can’t deny how safe she feels when she’s in his arms or how every kiss leaves her desperate for more.

For Piper, the idea of finally living an ordinary life with a man to love is tempting. However, fate keeps placing the judge, quite literally, in her path. Will she decide the only way to win is to be as wicked as the judge, but with righteous intentions? And more importantly, will Bobby choose to let her go, or follow her as she crosses the line and takes justice into her own hands?

OUT OF TWO MILLION BUSINESS BOOKS, THIS IS THE ONE YOU NEED!

If you put “business books” in the Amazon search bar, you really do get more than two million results. There’s a lot of information out there, but how useful are most business books to your particular needs? Some not so much, we expect, but you do need this one—we guarantee it. Literally. We’re so convinced THE SAVVY MANAGER will help you—no matter what your business, no matter what its stage of development–that we’re offering a money-back guarantee! Every penny back if you’re not happy with what you got out of it.

It’s not a how-to book per se—and yet, it tells you how to do so many things! Hiring and firing, for instance; reading people; identifying non-producers. Cutting expenses. Knowing what your customers need. Most of all: Growing your business. It doesn’t tell you how to start a business, yet reading it will make doing that so much easier. It doesn’t tell you how to run one, but even if you’ve been a COO for thirty years, you’ll find new wisdom in it. It’s not a blueprint, it’s more like a bag of missing puzzle pieces–the puzzle being the day-to-day job of making your business lean and profitable.

It’s written in the bite-size chunks made famous by executive summaries, perfect for business owners and managers with far too much on their plates—you can eat on the run, so to speak, take in as much or as little as you can handle at a time. You’ll find yourself going back again and again, reading and re-reading.

You need this book now if you’re:

An entrepreneur
A manager
A future entrepreneur or manager
The owner (or aspiring owner) of a start-up
Even vaguely thinking of starting a company
The COO of a mature company with a lifetime of experience (A lot of advice will be like familiar friends—old pals you wish you’d gotten in touch with more often. But some will be new and fresh—even to you.)
An investor in a start-up or mature company, particularly one that’s having problems
Thinking of investing in a start-up
A manager, investor, entrepreneur, CEO, or COO whose business is in trouble! Or new.
Or humming along splendidly.

The people of Ardonor suffer from a curse that flows through their veins…

To survive, the Order of the Dragon was created to train brave warriors how to combat dragons, and teach brilliant scholars how to alter the curse through science.

But not everyone was fond of the strict governance of the Order, and many saw that they could turn a handsome profit if they learned these skills outside of the Order’s control.
Jefrie Danglon was one such person.

Gifted with a brilliant mind, Jefrie found himself drawn to dralchemy. Working with his uncle, his best friend, and a Master Dralchemist, they quickly formed one of the most successful underground businesses in Ardonor.

But performing dralchemy outside of the Order has its risks.

When they agree to the most lucrative contract they’d ever seen, they thought it was simple and straight forward. Dragonlyst. An inordinate amount of dragonlyst. But what they soon realize is that they may have agreed to something that none of them were prepared for.

MURDER AT CARNIVAL IN THE FLOATING CITY

The surreal splendor of Venice glitters and mesmerizes as six so-called friends who, it turns out, barely know each other meet at Carnival to play a malignant game that quickly turns murderous. Sally, the “Tallahassee lassie” spurned by the rest as a virtual hayseed, is swept up by a mysterious count, attending masked balls, operas, and Carnival revels even as she mourns her marriage and dodges a deadly pursuer. “Things should happen at Carnival,” says her unlikely protector, who resembles Harlequin in more than his costume. “If they go on just the same, there’s no reason for Carnival at all.” There’s absolutely no chance of that in this psychological tour de force of surging identities wrestling to emerge in people forced by violence to confront their inner Harlequins and Medusas.

The characters change costumes, alter egos, sex partners (and preferences), and most of all, their stories while Carnival swirls around them, each more desperate by the hour to solve the murder, commit another, save a career, escape a past…whatever it is that Carnival, as much a character as the humans, seems to command them to do. The guignol grows ever grander, the danger more heightened as the clock ticks toward midnight on Fat Tuesday and Sally finds she has more enemies than she thought.

Fleeing her picture-perfect marriage among the privileged set of Brentwood and the wreckage of a failed marriage, Lily Parkins decides to move to the only place that still holds happy memories, her grandmother’s old farmhouse. The lush and majestic setting of the Pacific Northwest calls to her and offers a place of refuge and perhaps renewal. Her grandmother has passed away, leaving the Madrona Island Bed & Breakfast Inn to Lily.

Left with only an old guestbook as her guide–a curious book full of letters, recipes, and glimpses into her family history–Lily is determined to embrace her newfound independence and recreate herself, one page at a time. With the help of the quirky island residents she has befriended, she slowly finds the strength to seek out happiness on her own terms. But as soon as she has sworn off men and is standing on her own two feet, Lily meets Ian, the alluring artist who lives next door, and her new life is suddenly thrown off course. The last thing she wants to do right now is to open her heart to another man.

Ultimately, Lily must decide if it’s worth giving up her soul for security or risking everything to follow her heart in this romantic love story.

But before she can communicate her discovery, she must overcome terrific odds among the terrors and tragedies of the ancient oceans. If she can succeed, the universe will change forever, and allow dolphins to profoundly affect the yet-to-evolve human race.

Ripple is an inspirational story in the Visionary and Metaphysical Fiction genre. It can also be firmly classed as mind/body/spirit fiction, (MBS) or marine environmental fantasy.

Alexa Hartfield. Author, local celebrity, fashion connoisseur. She chose Fairbury for its close proximity to Rockland, its small town atmosphere, and its low crime rate.

Then someone made her life a literary cliché. A mysterious accident with a light bulb sparked an interesting idea for her latest novel—and for Fairbury’s new serial killer. The first replication infuriated her. The second left an even worse taste in her mouth. The third blasted more than her self-confidence, and the fourth beat her down so far she’s considering giving up writing completely.

Who is killing Fairbury’s citizens, and furthermore, why and how are they using her novels to do it?

Chase Reynolds donated to a sperm bank years before while working on the police force, having no idea that a few months later an injury would leave him unable to father his own child. Now divorced and working as a private investigator, he’s about to find himself facing a past he’d just as soon forget.

When Shay McDaniels learns that her father has been receiving threatening letters, she heads to the resort he owns in the Keys, hoping to convince him to bring in the police. He stubbornly refuses, telling her that bad publicity of any sort could hurt his business.

Chase has no idea that the young woman he meets on the beach, the one whose son is determined to ‘catch his mommy a man’ is James Lansing’s daughter and grandson. The background check he’s done on James Lansing has his daughter currently living in Miami. So when he catches glimpses of her talking to James, even hugging him, she moves to the top of Chase’s suspect list.

For the first time since her divorce, a man succeeds in stirring Shay’s passion. But more importantly, he makes her son smile. Unfortunately, Chase Reynold’s constant proximity to her father stirs her suspicion as well.

When James Lansing invites both Shay and Chase to join him in the private dining room, they discover each other’s true identities. Then Lansing informs Chase he’s to become his daughter’s personal bodyguard until the situation with the threats is taken care of. Being thrown together twenty-four hours a day is the last thing Chase wants, considering the growing feelings he has for Shay. Distraction can make a man careless. But he accepts, determined to protect her and her son with his life.

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.

A STORM, AN ILLICIT LOVE AFFAIR, AND MOONSHINE… (actually, two illicit love affairs)

The 1950s fairly leap off the page in this classic cozy mystery set in northern Florida in the Eisenhower era, complete with Johnny Ray on the jukebox and a Womanless Wedding—this one interrupted by an explosion at a moonshine still. Lily Trulock, owner of Trulock’s Grocery & Marine Supply, leads a pretty quiet life until a stranger comes to town. The new guy’s not what he appears, but then, some of St. Elmo’s residents aren’t either.

Before she can say, “down the hatch,” Lily’s at the center of a vicious murder and a no-holds-barred bootlegging war—and a nasty storm’s on the way. This is a vibrant, atmospheric, powerful novel—as filled with energy, mystery, and motion as a hurricane.

Hurricane Season is as much a richly-detailed, spot-on historical as a mystery, widely praised by masters of the genre and reviewers alike for its pitch-perfect period feel and fine, spare writing.

Critically Acclaimed Romantic Suspense Novel

Kallie Andreas is a mystery, even to herself.

Seven years ago Kallie woke up in a New York City museum, injured and traumatized. Alone and unclaimed.

Despite her shattered memories, she’s worked her way into a position as assistant curator in that very museum, and now she wants nothing more than to pursue funding for her project–assembling pieces from the ancient Minoans.

But then the blackouts start. Lost time, stranded in terrifying danger, frantic visions that can’t be real. A threatening phone call may be nothing more than paranoia and madness. Or perhaps not.

It’s time to start seeing her psychiatrist more often.

Kallie’s doctor challenges her to keep a journal, but her writing morphs into something else… What begins as a romantic fairy tale becomes an allegory of a woman plunged into crisis in the ancient past, in the misty islands of Minoan Greece, home to myth and legend.

When a mysterious billionaire invites Kallie to scour the black market with him for the most valuable of all Minoan treasures, the key to their lost language, Kallie can’t resist. Dimitri is wealthy, charming and good-looking, but she’s not interested–not in someone who’s clearly hiding secrets of his own.

Together, the two embark on a global quest to find the Key, through some of the most exotic and beautiful locations in the world–unraveling the mystery and pursuing leads, all the while resisting romance in Italy, under the Santorini sun, and among the pyramids of Egypt.

Meanwhile, Kallie’s memories are bleeding through and her journal has turned violent. She’s teetering on the verge of a breakthrough, but what devastating truth has she been suppressing?

When a strange woman who clearly knows Kallie’s real identity tries to murder her, it’s clear that Kallie’s past and present worlds are colliding, in a deadly crisis that will finally reveal the shocking mystery of her past.

But will the truth leave room for love?

Not-quite-sixteen year old Lizbet Moore expects a boring last month of summer vacation — and she gets what she’s expecting until a fifteen hundred year old Fae named Eamon shows up in her backyard disguised as a down-on-his-luck garden gnome. When Eamon slips an ancient amulet around her neck, the memories of Lizbet’s many past lives, including her first life as Morgan Le Fae, come slamming back to her to change her summer plans in a way she could never have expected.

Forced to go on the run when murderous monks show up at the back door, Lizbet hops a plane to Scotland accompanied by Eamon, the whispering voices of her past lives, and geekily cute James, the college boy from next door. Not only does she have to dodge the monks, but she’s racing against time and greedy land developers to prevent the entire race of the Fae from being destroyed.

The only thing Lizbet knows for sure is that if she fails and can’t produce a few live fairies at the end of her journey, she is going to be grounded for life…and probably for her next life, too.

When he takes the girl back to Newhome, she breaks the town’s rigid conventions in her attempts to get to know him, risking the dire wrath of the Custodians.

And though he knows the rules – that no man is permitted to be alone with an unmarried woman – there is something about the girl that completely captivates him.

Meanwhile, the Skel are ramping up their attacks on Newhome’s foraging teams and infesting Melbourne’s ruins in ever-greater numbers. Is this part of a larger plan that could spell the town’s doom?

From the bestselling author of WORLD OF SHELL AND BONE comes a love story set in a town where nothing is ever as it seems…

Eden, North Carolina–my hometown and personal hell on earth.

After I left for college, I vowed I’d never see it again. Too much had happened there, and my wounds were still raw. When I found myself headed back four years later, I was adamant nothing would keep me there for long.

Then I met the intoxicating Dax Allard. Copper-colored eyes, skin that emanated an exceptional heat, and a host of strange talents… It wasn’t long before I was drunk on him.

But Dax’s past was darker than mine, teeming with ancient secrets. Falling for him could cost me my life.

I had two choices: walk away or deal with the perilous consequences.

It was no choice at all.
