A middle-aged professor, disillusioned and jaded by a loveless marriage and a stale career, makes the move to South Korea in an attempt to bring excitement into his life. What he finds is more of the same: a never-ending repetition of existence without meaning. It is only when a woman much younger than himself, one of his own students, engages him intellectually and emotionally that he finally feels alive.

Despite the fear of the taboo of a potential relationship, he feels himself drawing closer to this girl who has brought colour into an otherwise stale and grey life. When this girl is taken away from him, he decides to do as all romantic heroes must: whatever it takes to make her his own.

No matter the cost, he will get her back.

THREE WOMEN. THREE DECADES. Spanning the years from the optimistic post-War 1940s to the Mad Men 1950s and rule-breaking “Make Love, Not War” 1960s, DECADES is about three generations of women who must confront the radical changes and upended expectations of the turbulent decades in which they lived.

Evelyn, talented but insecure, is a traditional woman of the 1940s. She is a loyal and loving wife and mother whose marriage and family mean everything to her.
Nick, handsome and ambitious, a chameleon who changes with the changing times, is her successful but restless husband.

Joy, their daughter, confused and defiant, a child of the 1960s, needs them both but is torn between them.

Barbara is the other woman, younger than Evelyn, accomplished but alone. She is a transitional woman of the 1950s who wonders if she can have everything–including another woman’s husband.

DECADES, sweeping in scope yet intimate in detail, is the emotional, compelling story of family, marriage, crisis, betrayal and healing.

People say that “you can never be too prepared” for a disaster – and while that is true, I do believe there is such a thing as over-preparation. If preparing for a possible disaster in the future significantly impairs your family’s quality of life today, you might need to reassess your priorities.

Living in a constant state of terror and paranoia is not something I am particularly fond of. I’m not one of those people who has built such an incredible fortress for myself that I’m almost giddy about the idea of getting a chance to use it.

If you find that lifestyle appealing, this guide is not for you. But you probably guessed that already from the title. You see, I believe in practical preparation. Being smart and ready, but also being rational about the risks and rewards involved.

House of Blues is the FIFTH book in the Edgar Award-winning Skip Langdon Series by Julie Smith.

DISTURBING FAMILY SECRETS, A CURIOUS KIDNAPPING, AND COLD-BLOODED MURDER HAUNT THIS GRITTY AND MYSTERIOUS SOUTHERN DRAMA.

Sugar Hebert arrives home from a ten-minute errand to find her husband shot to death and the rest of her family missing—including her daughter Reed, heir apparent to the Hebert restaurant dynasty, and Reed’s eleven-month-old daughter.

Detective Skip Langdon’s hunt for a murderer and the missing Hebert heirs embraces worlds within worlds—splendid but dangerous Garden District digs, Faubourg Marigny drug dens, broken-down projects, lowdown bars, an elegant hangout for crooked politicos, and a dealer’s crib masquerading as a sultan’s palace, harem and all. A palm reader warns Langdon of danger, but it comes when she’s least prepared for it. Before long, the mob’s involved (maybe there’s a reason Hebert’s Restaurant won the lucrative casino contract), and so are family secrets so ugly they’d make Tennessee Williams wince. Everyone has them—the Heberts, the mob princess, even the crooked cop.

And Langdon finds she should have listened to the damned palm reader.

He made the decision years ago to buy a cyborg bride named Mina and is finally ready to tell the story of why he opted for an electronic lover. Marriage is tough enough for average couples, but the complexities of being wed to an artificially created person presents unique challenges.

Mina is, by all accounts, content with her husband. She owes her existence to Tim, but over time yearns for something different and special. More love, more life, more fun, more friends, more laughter, more thoughts, more things, more “more”. Her restlessness causes her to search for answers to the nature of her being and the pursuit leads to an underground religious group known as the Association of God’s Children. However, it also results in Mina exiting her habitation zone without permission from CyberG, the company that built her.

The couple find themselves entrenched in a serious predicament. Mina is caught between Tim, the only love of her short life, and a spiritual search that threatens to reveal more about the nature of her being than she could possibly imagine. Tim thinks of her as an independent person, but his sensibilities are tested when she claims to have supernatural powers. Will Mina’s yearning for something more become their undoing? The authorities are closing in and time is running out for a happily ever after.

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

Need Help?

Do you have a hard time figuring out how to discipline your child?

Is it hard to get your child to listen to your rules or cooperate?

This child discipline book and kit combined is a handy tool for parenting and child care. It promotes positive discipline and helps keep things fair and agreeable for everyone.

Children can learn self-discipline and accountability while becoming educated about the job, financial, and legal system.

With this system, everyone wins!

For Parents:
•Strengthens respect without resentment
•Transforms conflict into cooperation
•Provides structure with rules and boundaries
•Fosters encouragement instead of demands
•Implements discipline without spanking or yelling
•An on-the-spot tool to organize & manage chaos

For Children:
•A fun & easy way to learn
•Teaches money management, math & life-skills
•Teaches accountability & self-discipline
•Nurtures a sense of pride with independence
•Deflects disagreements & false sense of entitlement
•Provides a way to gain privileges
•Gives a jump start on skills needed for the real world
•Moderates unhealthy things such as the use of video games, computers, sweets, & more.

Providing good child care can be challenging. As parents, we can feel like life-time students figuring out how to get things right. This is just one of many great tools that can certainly help with the process of teaching and raising children.

According to the Clark University Poll of Parents of Emerging Adults – “74% of parents say they provide financial support to their 18-29 year old children.” This may be due to the “Entitlement Epidemic” that we’ve recently been hearing about.

This kit was created to help decrease the issue of entitlement while helping children gain responsibility for their actions -while enabling parents to create structure in the midst of chaos.

Research and studies have been done to make this system cater to a child’s and parent’s needs. It’s been tested, tweaked and rewritten many times over the last few years to narrow things almost down to a science.

This toolkit motivates kids to help out with household chores and to take on responsibilities independently – without paying a cash allowance. The kit also provides an easy reference to cut down on disagreements and confusion among parents.

Once you begin using this system, you can say 2 WORDS that in most situations will get your kids to cooperate almost instantly.

Everyone with kids or planning on having kids can benefit from this system. Kids love the idea of it too!

Let’s arm our children with tools for success; while you gain some relief and peace of mind.

Category: Paranormal Romance

 

 

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

In every myth, there’s a modicum of truth.

For four thousand years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Unwittingly, one creatus will endanger them all…

As with most of his family, Derrick Ashton knows his future and what position he’s destined to fill within his unique society. Everything changes, however, when he breaks one of his family’s strictest laws and falls in love–with a human.

In his quest to protect the woman he can never have, a twist of faith propels him into a new role that will cause dissension among his family and endanger the anonymity that they’ve strived for thousands of years to protect.

Now, he will risk everything to save the girl from humans and his own kind. The one thing he can’t save her from, however…is herself.

The Creatus Series is not your normal paranormal story…it’s a realistic romantic mystery based on the myths you’ve heard your entire life. Prepare to believe.

Note: The events in Creatus (They Exist) start fourteen years prior to the events in Creatus. I highly recommend you read this novella before Creatus so you can get a look into the characters’ lives leading up to the full story. Only the last chapter and first chapter overlap, and they are from a different point of view. Prepare yourself for a cliffhanger ending, though.

A Cat Out of Egypt: The Prequel to Yeshua’s Cat, by C. L. Francisco, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 5 out of 5 stars based 7 customer reviews.

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

A Cat Out of Egypt: The Prequel to Yeshua’s Cat

“On a cold winter’s night when the heavens almost seemed to reach down and touch the Earth, a child was born in a stable . . . and many miles away, as her last kitten struggled into the world, the Great Cat Who Is Bast saw the star and wondered.”

C.L. Francisco’s new novel, A Cat Out of Egypt, is a magical tale of Jesus’ “lost” years in Egypt. The feline narrator, Miw, is an Egyptian cat from the great temple at Bubastis, born under the Christ Child’s star. After corrupt priests plot her death, Miw escapes with Tikos, priestess of Bast, to a Jewish village, where Miw’s battle against a deadly scorpion wins the gratitude of Yeshua’s family. But when Tikos faces down an Egyptian mob, she betrays their location. She and Miw flee south, and Yeshua’s family, warned in a dream to leave Egypt, go with them. Pursuit escalates until both Egyptians and Romans are spreading nets to catch Miw, and a cadre of dark priests who stalked Yeshua at his birth stumble onto his trail while tracking Miw. A powerful Nabataean caravan leader joins Miw in defending Yeshua and his family against forces determined to destroy the child before he can reach Israel. The peril overshadowing his friends drives Yeshua deep within himself to realize many of his gifts at an early age, quickening self-awareness far beyond his years.

A Cat Out of Egypt is the second in the series, Yeshua’s Cats, the prequel to The Gospel According to Yeshua’s Cat, a story of Jesus of Nazareth told by a cat he carries hidden in his robes. Yeshua’s Cat has received consistently enthusiastic reviews since its publication in November, 2013, including 4½-star reviews from both Indie Reader and Self Publishing Review. Like Yeshua’s Cat, A Cat Out of Egypt combines theological subtlety, historical accuracy, and the perceptive observations of a companion cat.

With this chilling message a wave of terror unlike anything the world has ever seen sweeps the streets of Europe. Thirteen martyrs burn themselves alive in thirteen major cities simultaneously.

Day by day the West wakes to increasingly harrowing acts of terror. As fear cripples the capitals of Europe, the only question is where will be the next to fall? London? Rome? Berlin?

In a race against time – believing the terrorists intend to assassinate the Pope – Sir Charles Wyndham’s unique Special Ops team, codename Ogmios, track a labyrinthine course through truth, shades of truth and outright lies that takes them from the backstreets of London to the shadow of Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin and all the way into the heart of the Holy See itself.

She is tracking this unknown assassin, sworn to stop him.
Neither realizes the truth about the other.
And neither knows that a terrifying predator is hunting them both. . . .

Essential Reading for Those Who Are Ready To Give Up What Doesn’t Work, And Embrace What Does (Spiritual Self-Help)

Think Differently, And Change Your Life For The Better

Does your life keep going on the same way, sometimes getting a little better, but not really fulfilling your dreams? Or, perhaps in spite of all your best efforts, life is getting harder. To change your life, you try many ideas about how to fix it. Some work for a brief time, others don’t work at all.

We all know that perception is reality

This means that in order for life to change for the better, permanently, our perception has to expand into a different way of thinking. We know that in order to change our life, we must think differently.

Good shifts happen, because we shift our behavior and habits. However, that isn’t enough, because we can only change within, and what, we currently perceive of as reality.

How To Think About God, As God Thinks About You

The only lasting solution is to shift our perception of reality. We must let go of our human way of thinking, and move into the Divine, infinite way, of thinking. “The Daily Shift” transforms us out of our small view thinking, and into the infinite viewpoint of God. God is the thinker; we are Its thoughts. With this spiritual awakening, we begin to think differently, and our experience of life shifts to more abundance, ease, and grace.

The Historic Trial that Divided the Women of America

Pearl, a stunning flapper in the Roaring Twenties, has danced for Rudolph Valentino, and enjoys the company of any man she chooses–until she decides to carry on an affair with Morgan, a married rural man with two children.

Morgan’s wife, Ina, disguised in borrowed clothing, guns Pearl down when she finds her on a midnight train with her arms around Morgan. The next day, Pearl’s body is placed on public display for a town of strangers, and her killer is applauded in the streets by hundreds of country women.

A “dream team” of defense attorneys is hired, and the stage is set for a sensational jazz age clash between two distinct views of a woman’s role in modern society—that of the “virtuous” rural mother dressed in gingham and the “scarlet woman” from the city who would deny a mother and her babies the necessities of life.

Should death ever be the price for adultery? That is the question the jury—and readers—are faced with in THE UNWRITTEN LAW.

Gripping, thought-provoking, and engaging–the reader of The Unwritten Law becomes a participant in one of the most morally divisive murder trials in American history!

82 Desire is the EIGHTH book in the Edgar Award-winning Skip Langdon mystery series by Julie Smith.

A WIFE’S WORST NIGHTMARE…

At the airport, the husband says, “I’ll get the car, dear. You wait with the bags.” And she waits till doomsday. Turns out the car’s still there. But hubby’s not.

It seems Councilwoman Bebe Fortier has misplaced her equally prominent husband, United Oil VP Russell Fortier. Across town, part-time detective/poet Talba Wallis has a simple wish–to find out what Russell Fortier’s disappearance has to do with her. But the private investigator who hired her to spy on Fortier can’t help her out. He’s lying in his office with a bullet in his chest. Reporter Jane Storey is walking down the same mean, sultry street—she’s on the brink of the biggest story of her life. But she’s got a bad feeling she’s being played like a deck of cards by a tipster with a malevolent agenda.

“An irreverent, modern-day, romantic comedy!”

The Hutchinson sisters grew up under the piercing, pious stare of a preacher’s wife. Plagued by her ever-disappointed refrain, “Well, it’s not my favorite.” Their search to find their own way in the world has not been a screaming success.

Gwenn is a good girl, a responsible girl…a miserable girl. Her steady diet of vivid fantasies is the only part of her life she enjoys. She daydreams of new parents, a more exciting job and an actual love life. She struggles to run a business as The Organizer, while she stacks relationship carcasses in the closet of her own completely unorganized life. Her only real friend is her younger sister, Rachel.

Rachel is outgoing, risqué and happily gay. The only people who don’t know this little secret are her judgmental parents, Pastor Ed and Shirley. Rachel struggles mightily to dodge her mother’s constant attempts to set her up with “nice Christian boys”; while holding down a job at the bakery and keeping up with her rock-star girlfriend!

Gwenn uncovers a photo that brings her imaginary world careening into reality. She’s forced to ask herself if wealthy artist, Daniel Gregory is the answer she’s been seeking or a grand delusion.

Break-ups, meltdowns, family secrets, wild nights and finally a journey of self-discovery to exotic New Zealand keep Gwenn and Rachel stumbling toward independence.

So grab your parka and join the Hutchinson girls, as they experience the Lake Effect in Duluth, Minnesota!
