Nothing to See Here by David L Post (Beckham Publications Group)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by pushkin319 (publisher): Please be willing to offer a review for the free pdf elecronic version of this riveting thriller novel.

Description: Is Alan Sarnower an ordinary man driven to kill under extraordinary circumstances, or is he an unstable man who had the capacity to kill all along?

Is his circumstance all that extraordinary to begin with? These are questions readers must ask as they turn the pages in this gripping tale of a man who sees his life spiral into a chasm of darkness and despair.

A successful psychiatrist, Dr. Alan Sarnower lives with his wife Cassie and ten-year-old son Mitch, in the Boston suburb of Cambridge. he remained busy with medical school and preoccupied with clients. Was he partly to blame for the dissolution of the marriage?

Cassie’s demeanor, increasingly bizarre, finally culminates in a quick and unexpected escape. Her car is found with a note attached to the windshield: “Split for the coast.” Alan, confused with his wife’s erratic behavior is determined to make a good life for his son despite the course of events. Mitch blames his father for Cassie leaving, and Alan begins to unravel.

He has an affair with his receptionist, as well as a mother of Mitch’s schoolmate. While Alan struggles to reclaim a positive relationship with his son, Cassie’s unexpected return and filing for divorce, forces him to face the realities of not only a judicial system that favors mothers, but a social services culture where anything can go awry.

Alan’s old psychiatry mentor offers a few conciliatory words along the way, as does his friend Tug, who lends a bit of comic relief in an otherwise dramatic novel.
How well do we really know someone?

Is Alan a sympathetic character? Did he end up killing his wife? How far would you go to protect the ones you love? Author David L. Post challenges the reader to ask these difficult questions.

Golden Dreg Boy, The Slums by DK Dailey (Tillable Ground Dreams)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by DK_Dailey (author): I am the author and I am givign away this review in hopes that the reader will feel so inclined to review my book on release day 7/2/20.

Description: Finding out who you are has never been so deadly.

In the ruins of San Francisco California, survivors of an epidemic that swept the nation have pooled inside the cities, restructuring life as we know it. Now it’s the strong against the weak; the rich Golden against the poor Dreg.

The Golden govern everything. Living above the city in four sectors, they look down on the Dreg slums. Against all odds, the Dreg have become survivors. Unable to afford proper care, their immune systems have adapted to protect them against the diseases now infecting the Golden.

Seventeen-year-old Kade Shaw is a privileged Golden. Kade and his family have the best money can buy, living in the wealthiest area of Sector One. A bored rich kid, Kade’s tired of his mundane life, and regularly sneaks out to the skate park and the slums to take risks and feel alive—maybe even kiss a Dreg girl or two. Until one night at an illegal party, everything goes horribly wrong.

When the cops accuse Kade of falsifying his Golden status, an offense that carries a death sentence, he is forced to question his true heritage after his powerful parents won’t save him. Then, on the eve of his execution, he’s rescued by a guerilla Dreg group—but why? What do they want from him? As he lives with them in squalor, trained in raiding for food, fighting, and how to survive, he slowly gains respect for the Dreg people, seeing them as more than “other”, confusing the age-old lines of good and bad. But despite his infatuation with Saya, a beautiful Dreg girl, Kade still wants his old life back.

In the brewing deadly war between rich and the poor, Kade must make a choice between fighting for his Golden status or helping the Dregs who saved his life. Golden or Dreg?

After Dad purchases an island to expand his empire, to Sophia’s surprise, he invites her along for the day to visit the island, expressing hopes of them growing closer. Unfortunately, the trip turns into a nightmare. The place is no ordinary island—it’s a land of magic. After barely escaping an attack by a dark guardian, Sophia sprints to reunite with her father, but discovers his boat is fleeing, leaving her alone and helpless.

As Sophia despairs, feeling betrayed and hopeless, Silimon, a tree boy, comes to her aid. After spending time together and becoming familiar with the island, she is intrigued by the highly-evolved creatures and their society, but is overwhelmed by their power of spells.

The moment Sophia thinks her situation can’t get any crazier, she is shocked to learn the island is under a deadly eternal curse. All living things are rapidly decaying and soon nothing and no one—including herself—will be left alive.

According to the tree people’s predictions, Sophia is the Chosen One, come to save them from the looming disaster. But her body is deteriorating, and the only way to prolong her life so she can break the curse is to drink the sacred water from the mysterious guarded fountain.

With her life waning, she gathers her courage and focuses on her spell training in order to survive the journey to the magical fountain. Can Sophia and her companions reach the fountain and defeat the guardian before time runs out?

Woodworking for Beginners Handbook: The Step-by-Step Guide with Tools, Techniques, Tips and Starter by Stephen Fleming (Fleming Stephen)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Stephen_Fleming (author): Hi There,
This is the 4th book in my DIY series. If you happen to win a copy of the ebook, I would appreciate your review. However, I understand that not every book will be for every reader, therefore if you would prefer not to leave a review, that is fine. I hope the book will help out all of you.

Description: Once an experienced woodworker said to me, "There is no scrap wood, just pieces which have not met the right hand".
Back in the days when I was starting with Wood Craft, I was desperately looking for the go-to guide about the processes and the tools involved.

Woodworking is a vast subject with many branches or sub-genres of this craft like Cabinet Making, Wood Carving, Joinery, Carpentry, and Woodturning.

The online content was information overload and not presented in a sequential manner. The books I referred were either focused on a few processes or assumed that I had the necessary information. Also, I found that most of the books were a little aged.

There are two ways of learning; one is learning from subject matter experts who have years of experience, and then there are people who are just a few steps ahead of you in their journey.

I am the second one, five years into this hobby, and still learning from the experts.

I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips which helped me.

This book is for people who are in their first lap (0-3 years) of the wood-crafting journey and want to have a holistic idea of processes, tools, and need help in their initial projects.

I have included ample photographs of realistic projects of beginners explaining the process and standard operating procedure while starting.

In the last chapter, Appendix: I have provided a glossary of woodworking terms, the list of online resources available for free patterns, tips, and techniques.

Below is the flow of the information provided in the book:

Introduction: The history and details of various branches of woodworking
All about the wood: How to choose them; Hardwood, Softwood, Plywood, MDF all explained
Woodworking tools: Hand and Power tool explained with best practices
Processes and Techniques: The complete workflow of the woodworking process along with a detailed explanation of the usage of each tool
Safety and Best Practices: This topic is highlighted throughout the book, and best practices with regards to hand and power tools explained in detail
Gluing and Finishing
10 starter projects with step by step instructions
Glossary of woodworking tools, souces for downloading the free plan
Also, you can download my additional bonus booklet with additional plans for more projects
So, what are you waiting for? As said in the woodworking community:

Measure Twice and Cut Once and let's start the journey.

A Louvre of Verse by Martin Foroz (Beckham Publications)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by pushkin319 (publisher): We are publishing our first poet from Iran and invite you to request reviews copies of this amazing poetic voice.
He deserves a wider acknowledgment of his unique vision, and we offer it to the discerning readers of LibraryThing.

Paperback editions mailed to US reviewers

Description: This new volume of poems by Martin Foroz reflects on the gallery of classic American and English poets whose voices have inspired him to develop a new voice of his own.

Poe, Thomas, Pound, Eliot, Shelley, Yeats, Whitman, Ginsberg, Gray, Emerson…they have expanded his perceptions and concepts now that he is in his 50s.

He has been producing poetry in both Persian (his native language) and English for the past twenty years. His English poetry has been published in different literary journals.

Author of Inside Out, Out Inside, and An Illustrative Dictionary of Semantics, Foroz is renowned for his fervor in dealing with subjects like war crimes, terrorism, love of nature, and faith.

Foroz has lived the narratives and the verse dramas arranged here in two parts. But for him, it does not matter whether he is depicting true life stories or has plotted the characters and events. It’s more important, he argues, that the reader recreates the multiple meanings in every piece of the Louvre.

He invites the reader to participate in meaning making rather than looking for a clear or cliché message.
Martin Foroz (Mohammad Forouzani) is an Assistant Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Nizwa. Born in Iran in 1964, lives in Oman.

The stakes of this war were extremely high. Both sides wanted to push their ideas into as many countries as possible and at times were willing to go to war if necessary. But a direct war between the USSR and the USA would have meant World War III, which would have very likely been the end of civilization as we know it.

Killer Moms: 16 Bizarre True Crime Stories of Murderous Moms by Jack Rosewood

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): Please keep in mind that this is a REVIEW COPY for the EBOOK version of this title.

Description: We all love our mothers, right?

Our moms fed us, tucked is into our beds at night, and nursed all of our bruises, both physical and emotional when we were kids. For most of us, we have our mothers to thank for the men and women we are today.

But not all mothers are so great. In fact, some moms are just downright nasty and evil.

In this book, you’ll learn about sixteen of the most terrible cases of moms who killed their own children. None of these women will get a mother of the year award and very few will get Mother’s Day cards while they sit in prison, but their cases are sure to intrigue you.

You’ll learn about little known details of some high-profile killer mom cases, such as Casey Anthony and Andrea Yates, and a few that are little known. You’ll read about moms who killed their children for profit and others who did so because they were tired of them. There are also a few cases profiled in this book that just defy explanation and appear to have been driven by no motive other than insanity.

So sit back, relax, and open the pages of this book to learn about sixteen of the most dastardly mothers in American history. You will be disturbed, but at the same time, you won’t be able to stop reading!

Dutch Short Stories for Beginners: 20 Captivating Short Stories to Learn Dutch by Lingo Mastery

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): Please notice that this is a review copy for the ebook version of this book.

Description: Do you know what the hardest thing for a Dutch learner is?

Finding PROPER reading material that they can handle…which is precisely the reason we’ve written this book!

Teachers love giving out tough, expert-level literature to their students. Books that present many new problems to the reader and force them to search for words in a dictionary every five minutes — it’s not entertaining, useful or motivating for the student at all, and many soon give up on learning at all!

In this book, we have compiled 20 easy-to-read, compelling and fun stories that will allow you to expand your vocabulary and give you the tools to improve your grasp of the beautiful Dutch tongue.
How Dutch Short Stories for Beginners works:

• Each story is exciting and entertaining with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations.
• The summaries follow a synopsis in Dutch and in English of what you just read, both to review the lesson and for you to see if you understood what the tale was about.
• At the end of those summaries, you’ll be provided with a list of the most relevant vocabulary involved in the lesson, as well as slang and sayings that you may not have understood at first glance!
• Finally, you’ll be provided with a set of tricky questions in Dutch, providing you with the chance to prove that you learned something in the story. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer to any — we will provide them immediately after, but no cheating!

We want you to feel comfortable while learning the tongue; after all, no language should be a barrier for you to travel around the world and expand your social circles!

So look no further! Pick up your copy of Dutch Short Stories for Beginners and start learning Dutch right now!

I'd love to hear from you if this sounds like your thing.

Description: The ARvekt is in you. In your brain. Wetware, grown in from birth.
You are connected. To everything. All the time. To the Augmented Reality that surrounds you. Life is a sonic, tactile and visual wonder. Better than the real ever could be.

But what if reality isn't real?

Ix is your Guardian AI. It protects you. Keeps you safe.
From war. From illness. From rogue AIs.
It has saved us so many times. Ix, Guardian AI, saviour of humanity.

But what if its protection is really betrayal?

But what if the public knew about the hackers?

Tannis Ord. Section-R Agent. Infiltration and extraction specialist.
A psychotic event left her partner dead. Dead by her own hands. Traumatised, her mind was in tatters. Now it has been repaired. She's ready to return back to duty.

But what if she isn't ready? What if her mind isn't repaired? What if the psychosis has returned?

So when Tannis investigates a mind hack like no other, it leads her to question everything. About Ix. About Section-R. About herself.

If reality isn't real, is it illusion? Or her own delusion?

The Convoluted Key by Elle Carter Neal (Seal Lane Media)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by ellecarterneal (author): The Convoluted Key is the first book in my new middle-grade fantasy series, Draconian Rules. I'd love to give 50 readers a chance to dive into this new world with me, and meet some interesting new characters such as Pippa Dracona, a witch who prefers maths to magic, and Violet-Tongues-of-Dragons, a soccer-mad fairy with a volatile temper.

Description: Unlock the door to adventure!
Debbie Torken and her brother Danny have heard rumours of the world where Magicians dwell. But when Danny is accidentally handed a Key that unlocks the realm of Magicas they are pitched into an adventure they never could have expected.
Tween witch Pippa Dracona prefers mathematics to magic, so the chance to attend a school in Physicas, the realm of science, was supposed to be a dream come true. But the Dame Ivy Newton School for Gifted and Unusual Students has too many archaic and nonsensical rules. Pippa is about to fail her favourite subject and lose her place in the course. When she makes a spur-of-the-moment decision to let the Torken children into the realm of magic, she might have made her worst choice yet … or, perhaps, her best.
If Pippa is to keep an important promise, she must find a way to get the Torkens home before the next witching hour begins. It’s time to enlist the help of some eccentric friends, solve a bizarre mystery involving unicorns and missing belongings, and gain some much-needed perspective. After all, there are two sides to every equation.

Clawed (A Panther's Pride Saga #1) by Tonya Coffey (Saguaro Books LLC)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by TCoffey0126 (author): This is the spinoff series of A New World. Even though it has elements of magic, faeries, and the JROTC program, the story is about the Shifters from the Faery realm from the previous books! I hope you give this story a chance and fall in love with Christa and her determination to be more than ordinary.

Description: All I wanted was a family.

So I surrounded myself with the only friends I've ever had and joined JROTC so I could feel the love of a family unit.

When we went to a two-week summer camp in the mountains of Kentucky, Carter Rollins, the leader, tempted me with always being desired. If I joined his Army Pride, I'd have the connections I'd dreamed of.

Yet something was mystifying about the boy with eyes like an autumn sky. Maybe it was his rugged exterior or his entrancing demeanor. When a group of rogue campers took my friend Sarah and I, I never imagined how accurate my senses were.

A fictitious legend shifted before my eyes...

To escape, I will have to use every trick I've ever learned but getting out may lead me into the path of a deadlier enemy.

No Accounting For Phoebe Paperback by Clare Mackie

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: For Phoebe Roberts, starting life at Cambridge University was just what she needed to throw off the ugly duckling mantle she’d worn for too long, and finally emerge as a swan. She didn’t think life could get any better, until the hypnotic green eyes of tall, dark and fascinating, Ethan Ward claimed her over a late-night transatlantic Skype call and she fell, headlong, into love.

Ever since the premature death of his parents forced Ethan from the family’s Californian vineyard, he’d lived in New York, but despite a successful career as a sought-after lawyer, he still yearned for the life he’d been born into and the beautiful Ward vineyard he’d once called home. When he unexpectedly meets Phoebe, her innocence, spontaneity and wicked sense of humour throw open the door to a second chance of happiness with the English beauty. Despite all the odds, obstacles and miles that separate them, they seem destined to enjoy a rare future.

But nearly ten years earlier somebody else had staked an unrecognised, unwanted and unbalanced claim on Ethan Ward. Somebody who was prepared to go to any lengths, however malicious, to get what they wanted. Somebody who would ultimately tear the couple apart.

Offered by Mylibrevs (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: There is a book which has shaped the course of history.

Since the fall of Troy, The Few have guarded it. From the Greeks and Persians to mighty Hannibal and the formidable Caesars of Rome. Viking raiders, Crusaders - even Genghis Khan and the Conquistadors sought it. Yet none have come as close to finding the book as the ruthless Third Reich. Until now.

Taking a seemingly innocent summer apprenticeship, fifteen-year-old Sam is drawn into the mysterious world of The Few. He and three new friends are chosen to be trained in forgotten arts by this ancient order, whose existence is shrouded in dark science, marvellous modifications and incredible inventions. It’s the beginning of an epic and relentless adventure full of action, gadgets and intrigue.

The stakes are high and The Few must adapt if they are to survive this new threat; for Ms Keller and Harbinger Robotics are poised for victory. They have learned of a scroll that will lead them to the book and, with it, change the world forever...

The Sweetest Deal of the American Revolution by Gilbert A. Lewthwaite

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: In the early 1780s, the revolution that started with the Boston Tea Party was about to end with a fight over the Caribbean sugar bowl.

Stewart Dean, an American privateer, sailed his fast, well-armed boat, Nimrod, from the new United States into the tropical fray, and landed himself smack in the middle of “The Sweetest Deal of the American Revolution.”

Trapped in a web of international conflict, trade and diplomacy, he was saved by England’s growing taste for the 18th century’s most valuable commodity – sugar.

His release, in exchange for the entire 1782 sugar harvest of the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, was literally the sweetest deal of the Revolutionary War. Through it, England got its sugar. France got its way. And Dean got his freedom.

How and why it happened is a story of American enterprise, English stoicism and French self-interest.

SG- Suicide Game is a metaphor about the society where persons almost kill themselves to achieve their goals and forget their dreams, but, in the book you will find also real love, friendship, loyalty, hope and an unexpected finale showing the good essence of the human seed. Eight thousand candidates sign up for the Suicide Game. Only one can win. Their destination is the Night Stadium: a place of makeup and music, fear and adrenaline, blood and romance, celebration and death. Each candidate has his or her own reason for entering the Game. The Council runs the Game. The outcome of the Game is left to fate...in the laps of the gods. The candidates will jump to their deaths in order to win everything, before capacity crowds in the Stadium. The public follows every jump, live on TV and mobile device screens, choosing their favorite candidates and betting on their lives. Who will win the game? Candidate 0907 - Moma - the terrorist? Candidate 1518 - Fabio Giovanni Cristiani - the cyclist? Candidate 3507 - Anthony Henrik Gustav - the lawyer? Candidate 4914 - Jens Plaato - the politician? Candidate 4918 - Sarah Mondstein - the career woman? Candidate 5151 - Bianca White - just a girl ? Candidate 7195 - The Scientist? …Or is it a completely different Candidate? The Game’s community also includes geeks, mafia, makeup artists, master chefs, models, musicians, spies, terrorists, and many others. It boldly imagines a place where death and denial are interwoven with hope, choices and the innate desire for happiness. Impressive in the totality of its vision, it is an exploration of the best and worst things in our lives, our nightmares, and especially our dreams.

Description: Set in a remote area of the Falkland Islands just over a year after the war with Argentina in 1982. The story follows two workers who made the eight thousand miles, two-week journey, from Great Britain along with many others to construct a new Airfield.
Their story is one of workforce conflict with management who are running the high-pressured project that includes tales of work-related deaths, a hostile climate and mental health issues but was helped by humour, camaraderie and much more that is needed to get through a very demanding project on the other side of the world in the days before digital communication, with possibly only a letter once a week and three-minute phone call home once a month.
The story takes the reader from a barren part of the Island that previously had only seen cattle and sheep to an aircraft landing just over a year later. While the back-drop is construction, it is more a story of human endeavour.

Modernism by Michael Davies

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: Prior to Vatican II, 80% of young people leaving Catholic schools practised the faith, today, 3% do. The much vaunted New Pentecost is seemingly no quite so awesome as the first. This catastrophic collapse is primarily the result of the heresy of Modernism, which has seeped into the Church’s blood stream like AIDs, sapping her vitality and reducing her to a shadow of her former self. Since Vatican II, with one or two honourable exceptions, Western sees have been filled by Rome with dreary, vacuous, bog-standard Modernists. Under the leadership of these men, Christ Body in the British Isles, and elsewhere, has simply haemorrhaged away? It is also no coincidence that the horribly sex-abuse scandals, mostly perpetrated by predatory sodomites, occurred on their watch.

To cure a disease, one must first understand it. In this booklet, Michael Davies uses his scholarship to lucidly expose the nature of this deadly virus in terms that all can understand.

Description: Bolton. 1901. Charlotte Roach is born. Destined for a life being deafened by the looms at the Mill and dying of consumption (often cheaper than buying a job lot of Cholera), she wants none of it. Trouble is, she’s a bit potato faced, and no-one thinks she’ll amount to anything. Determined to have a better life for herself, she sets out on a singular path to achieving Hollywood stardom…via the outdoor lav. It’s a long slog and along the way she discovers that if you’re from Lancashire, you can never quite remove all traces of chip fat and clogs, no matter how many times you have Judy Garland round your upright, singing a torch song about ferrets. Fortunately, she never did. Her life may have turned out very differently, otherwise…

Description: It is 1820 and Jessica, grieving for the loss of her fiancée at Waterloo, accompanies her clergyman father on an expedition to South Africa with the intention of continuing her work as a schoolteacher and helping him to minister to the spiritual needs of settlers whom the British Government is encouraging to take up land grants to form a buffer against the incursions of the native population on the border. On the long outward voyage she meets the enigmatic Finbar O’Rourke, the ship’s surgeon, Miles Draycott, a ruthless entrepreneur and his predatory sister-in-law Beatrice. As Jessica struggles to control her growing feelings for Finbar, Beatrice sets her cap at him whilst Draycott becomes besotted with Jessica. The tensions within the group reach a climax as the ship finally arrives at South Africa and continues beyond as the settlers struggle to make a living in the unfamiliar, hostile environment of the interior.

The Sweetest Deal of the American Revolution by Gilbert A. Lewthwaite

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: In the early 1780s, the revolution that started with the Boston Tea Party was about to end with a fight over the Caribbean sugar bowl.

Stewart Dean, an American privateer, sailed his fast, well-armed boat, Nimrod, from the new United States into the tropical fray, and landed himself smack in the middle of “The Sweetest Deal of the American Revolution.”

Trapped in a web of international conflict, trade and diplomacy, he was saved by England’s growing taste for the 18th century’s most valuable commodity – sugar.

His release, in exchange for the entire 1782 sugar harvest of the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, was literally the sweetest deal of the Revolutionary War. Through it, England got its sugar. France got its way. And Dean got his freedom.

How and why it happened is a story of American enterprise, English stoicism and French self-interest.

The author, Christopher E. Pelloski, MD, respectfully requests, at the minimum, your review on Amazon (other sites optional) and is grateful for your time.

The goal of the author is to spread the word on some very difficult and important subjects and initiate a discussion. He is looking for critical thinkers and open-minded people to pick up this book and give it a chance.

About the Author:
CHRISTOPHER E. PELLOSKI earned his medical degree from the Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago in 2001. He was accepted into the Radiation Oncology Residency Training Program and eventually joined the faculty at the University of Texas - MD Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston, one of the top cancer centers in the world.

In the summer of 2013, his personal, public, and professional life came to a painful reckoning. By the fall of 2014, he became Inmate#: 71491-061 at the Federal Correctional Institution, Elkton.

Dr. Pelloski has received numerous literary awards for both of his books and is a strong advocate for change in social policies and a better understanding of mental health issues.

Silver Medal Winner of the 2019 Living Now Book Awards.
Bronze Medal Winner of the 2019 Global Ebook Awards.
Finalist, 2019 Kindle Book Awards.

In this thought-provoking sequel to his award-winning memoir, Trauma, Shame, and the Power of Love: The Fall and Rise of a Physician who Heals Himself, former elite cancer doctor and researcher, Christopher Pelloski, chronicles his compelling journey from federal incarceration to halfway house detention to the first few years of building a new “after” life. Alternating between humor, pathos, and measured outrage, Pelloski takes us with him as he weathers imprisonment, divorce, and medical board hearings, undergoes polygraph interrogations and court-mandated therapy, finds a new home, starts a new profession, reconnects with family and old friends, and forges new relationships in A Tortuous Path: Atonement and Redemption in a Broken System.

Diverse stories of those encountered along the way show the faces of those most affected by the failures and capriciousness of the American justice system—and demonstrate the essential value of kindness and second chances.

AWARD-WINNING SEQUEL NOW AVAILABLE! A Tortuous Path: Atonement and Reinvention in a Broken System.

Silver Medal Winner of the 2016 Living Now Book Awards.
Bronze Medal Winner of the 2016 Global Ebook Awards.
Semi-Finalist, 2016 Kindle Book Awards.

There is a reason books that recount the regrets and advice of the dying strike so deep a chord: people who have nothing left to lose can tell their stories with a sincerity and unpretentiousness we crave but that is all too rare. In Trauma, Shame, and the Power of Love, Christopher Pelloski relates his own downfall from a prominent physician-scientist in the field of radiation oncology in a similarly candid way.

Without fear of losing society's good opinion—having lost it already—Pelloski has the freedom to be sharply honest in his observations of himself and the world around him. To the question "Why would someone with so much going for him risk, and then lose, everything, by sinking so low?" he offers a gut-wrenching, soul-baring answer that dissects his decades-long downward spiral and examines it from perspectives that range from the historical to the molecular.

Pelloski chronicles the evolution of his devastating legal battle alongside his concurrent journey of recovery from childhood sexual abuse. He shares with us the lessons he learned from these experiences in the hope they can serve as both a warning and an invitation: a warning to abuse survivors not to follow his dark path of silence, and an invitation to society to deal more openly with the multitude of painful issues that have shaped not only his life but also, tragically, the lives of so many others.

Those brave enough to set aside their prejudices and preconceptions will be richly rewarded and challenged by this work.

Blue is for Murder by E.W. Farnsworth (Zimbell House Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by ZimbellHouse (publisher): I am writing on behalf of the publisher, Zimbell House Publishing. This book is the third in a series of noir novels about private investigator John Fulghum, but reads as a standalone story. If you are a winner, we would so appreciate an honest review when you have finished!

Description: Private Investigator John Fulghum knows it is more than his good fortune that brings this beautiful, intelligent Korean woman to his seedy second-story office above Joe’s Malt Shop. Executive assistant and unlikely wife of a wealthy Boston centenarian, a Korean War hero, and now a murder victim, Kim Su Baek spins Fulghum an incredible tale with roots in the ancient Korean royal family. Yet Fulghum believes her incredible tale and accepts the case to prove her innocent of murder.

To solve this case and exonerate his client, the Jack Daniels-loving gumshoe’s investigation must balance relationships among his Pulitzer-Prize winning girlfriend/reporter, Sylvia Blackwood; his friends-Boston Homicide Officer, Nigel Pounce, and CIA Agent, Ken Salamander; and his client, as they become drawn into a deadly labyrinth designed by both sides of the conflict on the Korean peninsula.

The plot finally focuses on a plethora of suspects at the deceased man’s estate in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The murky intrigue of this case causes a nail-biting succession of horrific deaths, culminating in attempts on the very lives of all our major characters.
Who will survive and who is guilty?

E. W. Farnsworth, creator of the John Fulghum Mysteries series, a noir detective collection of short stories, presents Blue Is for Murder, John Fulghum Mysteries, Vol. III, his first full-blown John Fulghum novel. His fans, clamoring for more John Fulghum, are thrilled to know that two more novels are coming soon.

Grandmother's Devil & Other Tempting Tales by Marty Malin (Canyon Rose Press)

Offered by MartyMalin (author): I hope you will enjoy reading this collection of short stories as much as I enjoyed writing it. I would be happy to send you a copy and I hope, if you like it, you will leave a brief review. Thank you! Marty Malin.

Available on Amazon.com https://is.gd/doquwo

Description: Grandmother’s Devil and other Tempting Tales is a collection of six unconventional stories about imaginary grandmothers doing what they do best: caring for their loved ones and trying to keep them out of trouble. These are not the author’s grandmothers. Perhaps they are yours. Perhaps not. But it doesn’t really matter. Their stories will capture your imagination. The grandmothers will steal your heart.

The stories are:

"Grandmother Sits"
An old woman floats easily between worlds, none of them in as sharp relief as they once were. She spends her last hours on the front porch of her mid-west home, resting in her white wicker rocker, sipping lemonade from her favorite glass, the one with the stenciled lemons.

"Grandmother’s Predictions"
A dissolute young man is brought up short by a vintage fortune-telling automaton he has painstakingly restored. An eerie fortune-telling session drives him into the street naked and stark-raving mad. Who, indeed, is that nurse in the mental hospital?

"Grandmother of God"
Hannah writes the story of her grandson’s life and excruciating death at the hands of occupying Romans, a testament against the lies of foolhardy rebels and zealots that grow ever more fantastic in the retelling.

"Grandmother Naked"
A widow finds new meaning to her life as a model for a life drawing class, only to find illicit nude photos and degrading tweets posted online. She takes her revenge.

"Grandmother’s Devil"
An otherworldly being watches over a comatose grandmother molested by an unscrupulous male nurse. Grandmother’s Devil intends to drag the nurse’s soul screaming into hell, but Grandmother has other plans.

"Grand-mère le Cigare"
A cigar-rolling Cuban virgin becomes the matriarch of a Napa Valley dynasty, having seduced a French brandy maker seeking his fortune in America. She shepherds her grandson from humiliating failure to a fairy-tale marriage to his childhood sweetheart.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by MadelineAsh (author): Her Cowboy Prince is book #2 in my Cowboy Princes series. I am seeking reviews for its publication on June 2nd, 2020. Thank you!

Description: Meet the cowboy royal who will never be tamed—and the best friend sworn to protect him.

Kris Jaroka didn’t sign up for this. He and his triplet brothers were uprooted from their ranch to inherit the throne of Kiraly. His duties keep escalating, and no amount of shirking his guards can stop the gut-ache of leaving his best friend, Frankie, behind.

But his biggest challenge lies ahead.

For years, Frankie Cowan has secretly monitored the safety of Kris and his brothers. When Kris’s recklessness forces her to reveal herself as the head of palace security, her duty to protect him and his refusal to be tamed meet head on.

Bound together, their lies and hurt soon surrender to their chemistry, and Kris burns to offer her his future. But Frankie’s past isn’t fit for a cowboy, let alone a prince—proving that the person she most needs to protect him from is herself.

Her Cowboy Prince is book two in the Cowboy Princes series. If you enjoyed the heartfelt emotion and trope-blending romance of book one, you’ll love this next cowboy-royal romance by award-winning author Madeline Ash.

The Road to Vermilion Lake by Vic Cavalli (NY: Harvard Square Editions)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by VicCavalli (author): If you are interested in environmental literary fiction, enter for a chance to win an eBook copy of The Road to Vermilion Lake. The author will send PDF and MOBI files directly to the winners.

Description: “The novel tells the story of . . . Thomas Neal Tems, a blaster’s assistant and first-aid attendant who lives and works on a construction site beside a glorious, remote lake. The site is being developed by a Swiss company into an ecologically friendly village, and Thomas begins a romance with the talented and imaginative architect who designed the site, a devout Catholic. The world that the characters must navigate, however, is decidedly not a romantic one. It is marked by painful past experiences, dysfunctional families, tragic accidents, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, all of which seem to derive from an inability to reach beyond the superficiality of existence. And yet, this is a world of second chances, for those who desire to change their imaginative perspective, to seek a sense of depth and enchantment that is deeply embedded in the tangible world, particularly in the body and in the natural world, as well as in the creative world of contemplative thought.”

Lake of Urine, A Love Story by Guillermo Stitch (Sagging Meniscus)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by GuillermoStitch (author): I would like to offer 5 signed copies, ideally in return for much needed reviews here and on other sites—the usual candidates.

It may not be possible to get signed copies to North American recipients.

The book is due out on July 1st and is already generating buzz:

“LAKE OF URINE is a weird and unique gem—hilarious and eerie and oddly heartfelt, full of images and bits of language that will lodge permanently in your head.”
Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will

“Absolutely savage...absurdly funny...truly original...In a story that takes us from a parochial redneck backwater to the sparkly lights of Big City and back again, we (loosely) follow the fate of the Wakeling sisters, both of them casualties of their monstrous mother, Emma Wakeling. A supporting cast of batshit crazies, all clawing for their share of the limelight, dance onstage and off again as we reel from one delicious scene to another and the plotline shifts from now to then, from here to there and back to here. If that sounds a little chaotic, I can only assure you that the chaos is strictly in the comedy. The novel itself is as tight as a fist and punches twice as hard.”
Anne Cunningham, book critic, Irish Independent

“Exploring this world is an absolute delight. At every turn we encounter new depths of depravity, new heights of brilliance… and all of it is rendered in prose that is smart and squalid and layered enough to evoke – and perhaps even rival – James Joyce. Lake of Urine is an anarchic, whip-smart ride through a world that mashes together the real and the impossible, the noble and the gaudy, the base and the divine. It is filmic, quick, dirty, and fuelled by an unstoppable energy from the first page to the last.”
Krishan Coupland, Neon

“This is the type of book I adore: intelligent, whimsically hilarious, and unapologetically bizarre. It is everything I love about surrealism and bizarro put together in one masterpiece. Without hyperbole, I can say that it is my favorite modern bizarre novel.”
Zé Burns, zeburns.com

Description: Once upon a time that doesn’t make a blind bit of sense, in a place that seems awfully familiar but definitely doesn’t exist, Willem Seiler’s obsession with measuring his world—with wrapping it up in his beloved string to keep the madness out—wreaks havoc on the Wakeling family. Noranbole Wakeling, living in the scrub and toil of the pantry and in the shadow of her much wooed and cosseted sister, is worshipped by the madman Seiler but overlooked by everyone else. As lives are lost to Seiler’s vanity, she spots her chance to break free of the fetters that tie her to Tiny Village, and bolts. But some cords are never really cut. In her absence, the unravelling of the world she has escaped is complete, and another madness—her mother’s—reaches out to entangle her newfound Big City freedom. The unpicked quilt-work of a life in ruins threatens to ruin her own, and it will be up to Noranbole to stitch it all together.

Dark and funny in equal measure, LAKE OF URINE is a sui generis romp through every fairy-tale convention and literary trope you can think of, including the wicked stepmother, the fairy godmother, Pinocchio, an enchanted penis, the goose that laid the golden egg, binary code, marmalade art and alcoholic meat snacks you can drink. It is also a merciless takedown of self and self-importance, satirizing a society that exalts the inane, drowns out the sane and eschews the divine for the profane, and a lament for the dreadful weight of our own origins, for the heartbreaking impossibility of absolute reinvention, and the heartening tug of the ties that bind us.

However, needing to know what it's like to have a mom, and to finally see the beach means more than anything to an eleven-year-old.

Some sixteen years later, a man Sandy never wanted to see again shows up at her doorstep. When Sandy's best friend places an ultimate life-changing decision in her hands, Sandy must venture back down the road, this time with the father she hates.

Making these decisions will be much easier with Justin, a long-time friend, by Sandy's side. Yet, Justin's help only leads to continued mixed emotions Sandy has been fighting for some time.

A journey rich in history, the truth, and determining forgiveness with a touch of humor is the portrait of life.
