Of Beasts and Men by Anike Kirsten (DystopianPress)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by AnikeKirsten (author):
This giveaway is by the author, for the purpose of sharing her debut short novel, Of Beasts and Men, and gaining reviews and insights to further her writing. eBook formats include PDF, ePub, and .mobi.

"With its social and political insights, Of Beasts and Men is a different kind of sci-fi drama, blending hard science with a societal focus rarely seen in the genre. It's recommended for leisure readers who want a healthy dose of philosophical and social reflection in the course of their adventure stories, and features a compelling, thought-provoking story of morality, alien and human origins and experiments, and the crossroads of ethics against the backdrop of humanity's world-changing drives."
- Diane Donovan, Recommended Reading - Donovan's Literary Services.


Of Beasts and Men is a quick read at just over 45 000 words of story, that explores social themes of inequity and discrimination along with scientific speculation on genetic engineering and regressed cybernetic technology. Readers of social science-fiction, hard science-fiction, cyberpunk, and biopunk will enjoy this pocket-novel.

The first two chapters are available for preview here.

Description:
“You must know there are two ways of contesting, the one by the law, the other by force; the first method is proper to men, the second to beasts; but because the first is frequently not sufficient, it is necessary to have recourse to the second. Therefore it is necessary for a prince to understand how to avail himself of the beast and the man.” -Nicolo Machiavelli
The Prince – chapter XVII


Of Beasts and Men is a dystopian science fiction pocket novel that deals with social injustices, the consequence of reckless genetic engineering, and clandestine politics; through the perspective of a privileged person.

On a distant planet - where literature rules the economy, cybernetic technology flourishes, and one race oppresses the other - Gliese Libra, a Librarian of considerable influence, must find understanding and equilibrium, through conflicts of identity, interest, and existence, to save humanity from annihilation.

H: Infidels of Oil by Ray Palla (INSONA Author Alliance Network (rp))

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by RPalla (author): This is the pre-edit/pre-release manuscript in .PDF format. The novel is currently in the editing process and due for public distribution on the Fourth of July. As the author, I'm seeking reviews in return for a pre-release mobile copy.

Description: Politically, Socially, Emotionally Jolting

After a rudimentary H-bomb erupts half-a-world away in a Middle-Eastern oil field, global war appears imminent. Cultural beliefs and raw cowboy personalities fatally clash when terrorists smuggle several obsolete Soviet hydrogen weapons into west Texas. Their mission is an all-out nuclear-radiation assault on American oil fields. This border breach threatens to permanently poison vast strategic U.S. underground petroleum energy reserves.

Amid constant turmoil from production costs, plunging barrel prices, and predictions of a soon-to-be hydrogen-powered world; a handful of oilmen counter attack. Grit-hardened, these small-town roughnecks reluctantly realize that they are all alone with the enemy on the Texas desert. Under a looming cloud of nuclear fallout, they defy the imminent demise of not just their individual careers, but collectively their very lives.

The idea for "H" is taken from the front pages of today's news. “H” exposes a variety of contradictions in dogmatic assumptions and human values.

In the City of Falling Stars by Chris Tusa (University of West Alabama)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by cmtusa (author): Author would like a review in exchange for free e-book.

Description: Dead birds are falling out of the sky and Maurice Delahoussaye suspects the air in New Orleans may be unsafe. The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries claims the birds were poisoned, while meteorologists suggest they were killed by a sudden change in temperature. There's even talk of terrorism, Bird Flu, West Nile Virus, or high levels of mold spores left over from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Gradually, Maurice becomes increasingly fearful that the government is hiding an ominous secret, and when he begins having strange religious premonitions suggesting that his wife is pregnant with Jesus Christ, he becomes convinced that the dead birds are a sign from God. In the City of Falling Stars is a tragicomedy that examines the increasing paranoia following the September 11th attacks, as well as a commentary on the devastating psychological scars that the storm left on the city of New Orleans.

Description: Will Emily forego love for a chance at independence?

Emily Preston wants only to become an artist. As the nation teeters on the brink of civil war, she must wage her own battle against the restrictive ideology of her father. Women belong at home on the plantation beneath the watchful eye of a husband or father—NOT at a university. But several schools in the North have opened their doors to women. How can she make her father see just how much it means to her to study under a master?

Independence isn't the only contentious point between them. A recent visit to her uncle's home in Detroit has called Emily's entire upbringing into question, but her father doesn't appreciate her criticisms of his management of Ella Wood, the Preston family plantation. Then there's the problem of Thaddeus Black, the handsome, charming young man who simply won't take no for an answer. It could be that the real fight lies within her heart, which stubbornly refuses to accept that a choice for independence must be a choice against love.

The Corner Office by Katerina Baker (Create Space)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by KaterinaBaker (author): I am looking for early reviewers for my upcoming release.

Description: Tara Johnson's sacrifices are about to pay off: a senior executive at thirty-five at a Fortune 500 company, she's one of the two finalists in line for a Managing Director position. Unfortunately, her rival of fifteen years, the charming, infuriating Richard Boyd, is just as qualified, and unlike her, he's willing to cross pretty much every line to get what he wants.

Of all the things Tara stored in the attic to make it to the top, it's her personal life she misses the most. That is, until she starts a steamy affair with sex god Aidan, her direct report. Interoffice relationships with a subordinate can mean the end of a career, and when Richard finds out, it's the perfect opportunity to take his high-heeled nemesis out, especially since he's still nursing a grudge against Tara for rejecting him years ago.

But Tara's increasingly domineering lover has his own dark secrets, endangering more than just her career. As her liaison spirals out of control, salvation will come from the man she always thought she hated, and perhaps the only one to truly understand her.

The Goblin Rebellion by Rex Jameson (Arnessan Ink)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by RexJameson (author): With the release of the third and final book of the Lucifer's Fall Trilogy of the Primal Patterns series, the author is looking for honest reviews of the series. This giveaway is for the 2nd book in the series. The first book Lucifer's Odyssey is free to download in ebook form on most major vendors. The third book Shadows of Our Fathers was released on 5/25/2017. A separate giveaway will be conducted for that book.

This book is the second part of the series, and would ideally be read after the first book. However, the second book does include a foreword that recaps the first book and it is possible to read it by itself without feeling too lost. It does reference events from the first book but should have enough background that a reader could enjoy the second book without fully reading the first book.

Description: Imagine a war between angels and demons that extends across our universe. Now, think bigger. Imagine that the fight between Lucifer and Jehovah extends across not only our universe but also two more ancient universes filled with demons and elves.

Lucifer has become King of Chaos, and the elves and demons have repaired their relationship. To those on the outside, Jehovah’s plans for the multiverse may appear to be in peril. But the Lord works in mysterious ways…

Jehovah imprisons Lucifer’s son and enlists the support of elven dissidents who have lost loved ones to Lucifer’s past deeds. Lucifer’s reforms in Chaos spark controversy at home and abroad, and the bond between the elven king Elandril and the demon king Lucifer grows stronger despite the protests of political elites in the elven capital of Arnessa. To get at the demons, Jehovah must isolate them. An enemy alliance is only as strong as its weakest link.

“The Goblin Rebellion” is the second book of the Lucifer’s Fall trilogy, and book two in the Primal Patterns series. The price of "The Goblin Rebellion" has been heavily discounted for a limited time in celebration of the upcoming release of the final book in the series. Book three "Shadows of Our Fathers" was released recently in May 2017.

This Second Edition of The Goblin Rebellion includes a bonus chapter at the end that expands on the Primal Patterns story.

Offered by StarbuckODwyer (author): Winners will receive a smashwords passcode promptly. Reviews and ratings on the platform(s)of your choice are greatly appreciated. Please like my facebook page and follow me on Goodreads and Twitter for updates on new stories and books. Many, many thanks.

Description: Named one of only two 5-star finalists for the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards in the humor category, Goliath Gets Up is one of the funniest books you will ever read. Indie Reader describes it as sidesplitting read "in which you find yourself shamelessly and boisterously cheering for the most outrageous band of misfits to ever have a dream." The story of "friends-by circumstance who decide they must do something important in order to change their lives," Goliath is a rollicking underdog tale about a misguided attempt to bring the Academy Awards ceremony to Rochester, NY and to save the city in the process. Not to be missed.

Public Information - 2nd Edition by Rolf Margenau (Frogworks Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by rolfmarg (author): This is the second edition of my best-selling novel first published in 2011. Added are suggestions from Korean War vets and new historical information. It is a coming of age story set during the Korean War. Since it is a new edition, I want to make it available to new readers and think that, given the rumblings from North Korea right now, this story of the "forgotten war" is very timely. Reviews have been very positive. It's a good, informative read.

Description: "Modern Candide. Warm and funny. Veterans and adult readers love it." The New York Review of Books

Freshly minted infantryman, twenty-year-old Wylie Cypher, arrives in war torn Korea in 1952. Every indication is that he has limited chances for survival. As an enemy bomber looms overhead, he prays that he can survive a sixteen-month tour of duty without, as his sergeant says, getting his ass shot off.
Wylie is recruited to join the staff of a Division Public Information Office (PIO) where he reports on many aspects of the conflict. He uses his infantry training in bloody combat, makes many colorful new friends, learns how to maneuver through the military system, finds love and loss, and grows up in the turmoil of combat and the war’s aftermath.
Veterans have hailed the story as accurate, believable, touching, funny, and “the way it really was.” The story is based on the author’s experiences, careful historical research, and the 300 letters he sent his future wife from Korea. He touches on prisoner of war experiences on both sides of the DMZ, the armistice, realistic scenes of combat, the many United Nations forces engaged in the war, and poignant and funny aspects of military service.
The second edition of the book includes recently disclosed information, and scenes and observations drawn from the comments of many veteran readers. The book is dedicated to the dwindling number of men and women who risked their lives to preserve democracy in South Korea.

Offered by MockMyWords (author): Dear readers, I'm a computer scientist and journalist by training. This is my first novel. I'd love you read your reviews. If you could post them also on the book's Amazon page after it goes live (July 15th), I'd really appreciate it.

Description: Chinese literary genius David Tan writes with style, wit, and elegance. His speech, however, is awkward, halting, and hilariously ungrammatical. When he joins the Steinbeck University's prestigious writing faculty in California, his students scorn him and his colleagues snub him. David craves support from his gorgeous American wife Laura, but she is too busy battling a sinister high-tech conspiracy at work to care about a husband she has stopped loving. The only joy in his life comes from working with Chinese-American student Melissa to develop a device that can get the bedridden back on their feet. Until, inexplicably, she too gives him the cold shoulder...

David's career and marriage are collapsing, Laura faces dismissal or worse, and Melissa's device seems doomed to flop. Will fortune intervene?

Mock My Words deftly interleaves marital drama, techno-thriller, and romantic comedy into a fast-paced narrative that bridges popular and literary fiction.

They encounter something—something strange—beyond their wildest imaginations, and their mission-to-explore becomes a mission-to-survive.

They experience something that makes them question their beliefs. All the things they had taken for granted, everything they had seen and learned, don’t seem to apply any longer.

Something happens along the way that makes them yearn to come back to Earth. After all, home is where the heart is.

This is not just another science fiction. Rather, it will make you question your own beliefs—may they be scientific, religious, political, or something else.

In the first installment of The Galaxy Series, find out about the strange world they discover.

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): ***PLEASE ONLY REQUEST A REVIEW COPY IF YOU ARE ABLE TO LEAVE A REVIEW ON AMAZON WHEN YOU'VE READ IT***

Description: ***PLEASE ONLY REQUEST A REVIEW COPY IF YOU ARE ABLE TO LEAVE A REVIEW ON AMAZON WHEN YOU'VE READ IT***

Open the pages of this latest true crime anthology to learn about twelve more true crime stories that shocked communities and grabbed headlines around the world. You will learn about tragic cases of family annihilation and relationships gone horribly wrong. Among the most shocking of these cases is the murder of the Westerhuis family in South Dakota, who on the outside appeared to by an all-American family, but inside they harbored a felonious secret.

A trio of politically motivated murder stories will also keep you intrigued and glued to the pages of this book. Two of the cases involve hate crimes committed in the United States, while the other was the first major act of Islamic terrorism in the U.S. The three cases were also examples of organized crime, much like the murder of Australian biker Wayne Rodney Schneider. You may be shocked when you learn that the criminal investigation of Schneider’s murder has uncovered suspects from two different continents and that the actual crime took place on a third continent.

Unfortunately, many of the cases profiled in this book involve innocent victims, such as nine-year-old Amber Lucius who was murdered by her own mother. Now that you have been warned, open the pages of this book and learn about twelve more high-profile true crime murder cases. You may be distributed at times, but if you enjoy learning about forensic science and criminal investigation procedures, then open the pages of this exciting book!

London Road: Linked Stories by Tessa Smith McGovern (eChook Digital)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by TessaSmithMcGovern: GOLD MEDAL WINNER 2012 eLIT AWARDS, AMAZON BEST-SELLER

On the morning of her release from prison, the hottest day on record in England, Janice Bailey makes her way to a boarding house in London, and discovers a bizarre new world.

This moving collection of linked short stories begins with 'When Janice Bailey Walked', an award-winning story first published in the Connecticut Review, and continues with six more stories that take place on a single day, as told by the eccentric residents of Number 17, London Road, thus illuminating a little-known side of the most beautiful city in Europe.

Praise for LONDON ROAD: LINKED STORIES:

"...reminiscent of the writer who appears in one of the stories: the great Katherine Mansfield."

Cynthia Rogerson, winner, V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize for a Short Story, 2008, UK

KIRKUS REVIEWS: In seven short stories, residents of a London boardinghouse reach moments of clarity. On London Road, lined with scruffy shops, stands No. 17, a detached red-brick Victorian that's been turned into a boardinghouse. Its residents tend toward hard luck and desperation: Janice is just out of prison; Mandy is on probation; Bitty has a good education, but is scarred by her mother's frequent abandonments; and Isobel is mentally unstable. Nora, the landlady, writes romance novels but has experienced little romance herself, and her daughter, Anna, is disgusted by Isobel's outbursts.
Their interconnected stories take place on a day of unusually hot weather, and focus on one resident at a time, with Janice's story told in two parts. In each, characters have a chance to make a leap of faith in other people, or in the future. In "The Walls of Buckingham Palace," for example, Nora--who adores the queen--reflects on an uneasy encounter with Len, her local pub's new landlord, who drank too much and frightened her off: "But every night since, her sleep had been disturbed by longings she thought had long since been vanquished." It takes queenlike courage for her to return to the pub, where she finds that Len is apologetic, sincere, and kind. Pointing to a framed photograph of the queen, he remarks, "You remind me of her, you do"; nothing, of course, could better gain her trust and win her over.
Though spare and fast-paced, McGovern's (Cocktails for Book Lovers, 2014, etc.) tales evoke entire biographies. She focuses on illuminative details and subtle, turning-point moments, as when Mandy, a young woman on probation, reacts to her mandatory book group's reading of Katherine Mansfield's 1922 short story "The Garden Party." It stokes her resentment, as she doesn't even know if people still give garden parties. Mandy makes plans to shoplift again, but something about the book group leader's hopefulness and the invitation to give her honest opinion sparks her determination to win--maybe a literary argument, or maybe more chocolate wafers. Tales with subtle, positive but never saccharine transformations that feel fully earned."

Description: School is over. Forever. And Cole is ready for real life to start. His new apprenticeship as a mechanic promises enough money to get a little flat in town, close to his pack but not too close. And who knows what else he could do with that freedom?
But before that, there’s a camping trip to the woods with his best mates, TJ and Ari. TJ has been Cole’s best friend since before school and he’s almost as good getting out of trouble as getting into it. Ari came later, but Cole can’t imagine life without his sharp intelligence and sweet smiles either.
If you are a guy who likes guys, they don’t make them easier on the eyes than TJ and Ari, but Cole is just fine keeping that to himself. They have meat to grill, some beer, and three nights to say goodbye to their childhood.
Everything is going great until Cole starts feeling odd. Within a few hours, his whole life is turned upside down: He is an omega. He is in heat. And he is alone in the woods with two alphas.
There is no going back from that night and Cole isn't sure their friendship can survive what they shared, but one thing is for certain: an omega cannot walk away from his fate.

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

Offered by rodmcin (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: Rod McInnes returns to present day Wessex, scene of his first darkly satirical novel 'Undue Influence' for another amoral tale of heroes, whores , eccentrics, idiots and scumbags. The year is 2013. Cuts of 30% to South Wessex Police have led to the uniquely unfathomable strategy of crime statistic friendly 'Stratified Community Policing'. It is a very bad time to be a copper and when a drug smuggling operation at the Kingston Harbour Marina goes very badly on the same night as an armed raid on a metals trader a few miles away lives are changed and lost. These events are played out against a background where in the coldest spring on record the already cash strapped council is bankrupted by inept financial management and unable to maintain services. There is rubbish on the streets but no grit and salt on the roads. As events unfold integrity is readily compromised, heroism is exploited while the undiscovered guilty continue to prosper.

You Don’t Say! Tongue Twisters, Perverse Proverbs and Foot-in-Mouth Disease by Aubrey Malone

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

Offered by aubreymalone (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: Many wise words are spoken in jest but many more stupid ones are said in earnest, as this book demonstrates.
How about this comment on a football match from Cristiano Ronaldo, for instance: ‘The reason we lost is because we didn’t win.’ Or Ian Wright’s, ‘It took a lot of bottle for Tony Adams to admit he was an alcoholic.’ Or Dave Woods’ remark, ‘The silence is getting louder.’ It makes you think, doesn’t it?
There are many others: ‘Abstinence is the thin end of the pledge.’ ‘A comedian who repeats old gags is a clear case of the tale dogging the wag.’ ‘It is kisstomary to cuss the bride.’ ‘Cannabalise legalis.’
A cavalcade of equally regrettable utterances form the basis of this melange of spoonerisms and spectacular ignorance.

Aubrey Malone has written a bumber of nooks.

The Revolution of Civil Society. Challenging Neo-Liberal Orthodoxy: The Development of the Progressi by Michael Lloyd

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by michaellloyd (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 this book, Michael Lloyd sets out a comprehensive analysis and counter-narrative to the neo-liberal market capitalist orthodoxy. He uses Friedrich Hayek, Margaret Thatcher's favourite adviser, as a 'stalking horse'. The aim is to argue against not only neo-liberalism, but also its philosophical and political antecedents deriving from John Locke and from Adam Smith, but reflected in Hayek and other neo-liberal advocates to the present day. A new social enlightenment is required, one which sweeps away the foundations of the liberal individualist enlightenment which persist today in the form of neo-liberal, market economics and its philosophical underpinning. In so doing it will also attack the false prospectus of Trump, Le Pen, Farage, and other populist nationalists. However, it will also challenge some of the shibboleths of the Left such as its naive anti-elitism, and its current preoccupation with identity politics rather than class politics.

Description: Having been transferred from Athens to the island of Rhodes due to a serious error of judgement on a murder case, resulting from his somewhat unorthodox method of analysing evidence, the professional life of Inspector Dimitris Karagoulis is shrouded in frustration and bitterness. When the dead body of an English journalist is discovered on the rocks beneath the Lindos Acropolis in late June, 2001, his initial instinct is to assume it is a suicide. However, he soon discovers that it is murder. As the investigation proceeds in the picturesque little tourist village, elements of his previous unorthodox approach resurface, particularly those related to fondness for his pet subject of Greek mythology. Consequently, Karagoulis decides that there are two sets of conflicting explanations for the murder - one depicted by the Greek Goddess of deception, Apatê, and another, the truth, represented by the Goddess Aletheia - a point which he is not slow in making to his fellow investigating officers.

Could the two events be linked? Cordelia Trent, the enigmatic Elder of the Burgrun House Coven, is in no mood to compromise. She wants the runaways back. But this coven hides a deadly secret.
Can January get to the truth before any more Sisters pay the price of that secret? The Spring Child's Whisper is the fourth book in the The Witches of Marston Dornie series.

Description: Ever wondered what your neighbour's diary might contain; whether it holds a secret that could change their world - and everyone else's - in all sorts of comical ways? Can Barney, the redundant librarian, and Caroline, the investigative journalist, use what they discover in a second-hand desk diary - plus the dubious services of Hooker-Bookers.Inc - to thwart conniving Senator Erich Werner? Will Us Marine D Banger and the doomed French-Canadian Henri Ferrell qualify as the most inept special agents of all time? And why should you never, ever take a nun from the Order of St Glevum at face value? The Clobber File offers a wry take on the early 21st century where you can be sure the unexpected will always happen - particularly if there's a bit of cutting-edge technology involved.

Description: The 60's was a decade of turmoil and change. But for two friends from a small Welsh valley village the riots, demonstrations and unrest - however unsettling - are just images on a television screen.

Their decision means they deceive their families and set in motion a series of events that ultimately alter the course of their lives.
'Dance with Me' charts the 1970's with the two very different girls: the chances they take, the men they meet and the consequences of their actions. Continue the journey with Mari: 'Wasted Time' examines the loves, the losses and new beginnings she experiences over the next decade.

Description: The year is 2051 and NASA, the US military and Australia have launched EMB, an incredible machine that can compress the fabric of space-time, providing us with previously unimaginable detail of the Big Bang and Janine Fuller, a pushy, headstrong anchor for CNNA has just been given the momentous story to break.

Following the launch, an alien internet signal is located coming through the wormhole in an electromagnetic region known as the “Waterhole”. Baffling NASA scientists, the source of the signal does not even appear to emanate from within the known boundaries of our universe.

Concurrent to this, animal migration patterns change, satellites malfunction and a reversal of the magnetic poles takes place. EMB is blamed, but despite official denial from General Smith, a brutal psychopath, with a frightening agenda of his own, Janine is unconvinced. In a world, where escalating mechanical failures, huge tidal surges and mass extinctions are becoming commonplace, Janine, using all resources known to her, goes into espionage mode in search of the truth.

What she discovers is a new reality more terrifying than she could possibly ever have imagined.

Description: "In this intricate YA tale, a group of teenagers with special skills unite to confront bullying, though they end up fighting crime, murder, and terrorism. Eventually, MOB evolves into a true crime-fighting band of superheroes.

Reminiscent of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, the teens outshine adults. They operate in their own world more or less autonomously, sometimes cooperating with grownups, other times circumventing them. Filled with numerous side plots involving family history, a mysterious corporation, a rare disease, terrorist plots, and more, Smith's tale ties it all together seamlessly while continually sounding the bullying theme, which intensifies from everyday school harrying to a device for recruiting criminals. The conclusion sets up the next MOB exploit." - Kirkus Reviews

The Worship of Walker Judson by Janice Strubbe Wittenberg (Spiral Publishing)

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

Offered by Janicew1290 (author): Enter to win a copy of the ten being given away of my award-winning novel, The Worship of Walker Judson. Is Walker a healer-gone-bad or a saintly soul whose considerable paranormal talents are simply misunderstood?

You, as reader must decide.

"A Divine read! This is a phenomenal, well-crafted view of the strange and familiar world of healing."--John Gillette, MD.

Description: Walker Judson has a grand secret. He sees light that emanates from, and surrounds other folks. Soul shadows, the boy terms them.

Years later, as director of The Living Light Healing Center, he meets the hunchback, Lauren Finch, and straightens her spine. Seduced by his charisma, she becomes his devout assistant, and ultimately transforms into a powerful healer in her own right.

When all goes awry, even as Lauren’s faith is challenged, even as others abandon Walker, she remains steadfast. But how far is she willing to go to prove her devotion and what will it take for her to peel off the blinders and trust her own strengths?

And so, is Walker Judson truly a healer-gone-bad or a saintly soul whose paranormal talents are misunderstood?
Ultimately, you, the reader must decide.

News today is rife with stories of physical and emotional abuse on the part of Catholic priests and Buddhist monks, and school teachers and sports coaches as well. Heck, even the current President of the United States is accused of it!,/p>

Furthermore, cults such as the People’s Temple, at the behest of their leader, Jim Jones, require followers to commit mass suicide. Along another vein, politicians, athletes, and entertainers: Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Tiger Woods, and Michael Jackson—to name a few—violate the trust of family and supporters, destroying lives in the process.

Why are tales of manipulation and abuse so rampant among the powerful? Then again, why are followers so easily swayed that they cast aside common sense and discernment?

The Worship of Walker Judson explores the misuse of power and the ease with which seekers relinquish it. Psychic phenomena, cultism, mystics and madmen, the retelling of the Christ story in the context of the persecuted healer, along with the role of personal choice versus karmic destiny are issues examined in this novel.

My Husband's Under Here Somewhere: Collectors, Packrats, and Compulsive Hoarders by Janice & Strubbe, William C. Strubbe-Wittenberg (Spiral Publishing)

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

Offered by Janicew1290 (author): Snag a free copy of our book about hoarders, extreme collectors, and hoarding-related obsessive compulsive disorders, along with the psycho-spiritual ramifications of a culture that's drowning in too much stuff!

"To be gleeful about such a serious matter may sound cold, but it is with great joy that I recommend this excellent, if not brilliant work."--Gabriel Constans, PhD, therapist, author.

Authors and siblings, Janice Strubbe Wittenberg and William Strubbe are delighted to debut their new book of narrative-non fiction, My Husband's Under Here Somewhere: Collectors, Packrats, and Compulsive Hoarders. To that end, they are offering ten free copies of the book on Library Thing.

Description: Hoarders collect to excess, filling bathtubs, closets, kitchens, garages, storage sheds—floor-to-ceiling—to render their living spaces uninhabitable. They’re so consumed they lose jobs, family and friends, homes, health, and occasionally their lives. To the rest us, these people seem bizarre or mentally ill, and we view their challenges with impatience, frustration and simplistic answers.

Yet a true fix isn’t so simple.

My Husband’s Under Here Somewhere, however, strives to unearth them.

Morbidly fascinating tales abound as the lives of hoarders who amass animals and collectors who spin out of control are examined. The science behind hoarding—including its link with Obsessive-Compulsive disorders—as well as promising forms of treatment, meet with consideration. Our materialistic culture, one that’s obsessed with with having more and more, further informs the narrative.

Certain types of stockpiling stem from challenging life experiences. A fellow who’d been imprisoned in a Russian Gulag spent the remainder of his days amassing keys. Jodin, a resistance fighter during World War II, is a consummate saver of twine. For her, a possession of such insignificance once meant the difference between extinction and survival. As a boy, Norman’s father insisted the house be kept as neat as a pin. Should anything fall out of place—absolutely anything—and he got beaten. So nowadays, he thoroughly enjoys his messes and views them as a way to get even.

Ordinary hoarders and extreme collectors notwithstanding, they’re also found among the rich and famous. Peter the Great kept a human zoo of freakish oddities, and also enjoyed excising his subjects’ teeth, adding them to his vast assemblage. The hapless Collyer brothers crammed their Manhattan brownstone to the brim and accidentally entombed themselves within it. Unable to part with his shorn locks and nail clippings, Howard Hughes stored them away for “safekeeping.”

Then there’s China’s remarkable Emperor Qin. After he conquered all surrounding kingdoms, he constructed 270 palaces to live in. As if that weren’t enough, he built roads and dug irrigation canals alongside, standardized laws, established a system of weights and measures, created a form of currency, and then formalized the use of written characters. While not a hoarder by today's’ standards, he was, quite possibly, the first to promulgate the axiom, “He who dies with the most toys wins.”

Eccentricity, wealth and death aside, each of the aforementioned had way too much stuff, which is a problem familiar to most of us.

Dare to quest for answers as to why this is so, and our acquisitive culture must be examined.

Harnessing humor and compassion, My Husband’s Under Here Somewhere does precisely that. As the first of its kind, this book of narrative non-fiction looks at hoarding and collecting as part of a continuum. And, while many self-help decluttering books and hoarding-related memoirs, as well as works dealing with Obsessive-Compulsive Hoarding already exist, none of them focus on the psycho-spiritual ramifications of suffocating to death beneath heaps of possessions.

Hopefully, this publication will appeal to hoarders and collectors, as well as family, friends and neighbors impacted by the hoarder’s behaviors. It’s also for clinicians and public agencies in search of positive ways to respond. Lastly, it's for curious folks who seek to understand.

Offered by whspress (publisher): We are very excited to share with the LibraryThing community our new collection of essays from Marnie Mamminga whose sharply observed vignettes highlight the importance of taking time to appreciate the ordinary occurrences that profoundly shape our lives and the places we call home.

Description: Return to Wake Robin author Marnie Mamminga revisits the Heartland with this new, dazzling collection of essays on the common experiences that unite those who live, love, and work in the heart of America. With insight and humor, she chronicles a wide range of such small-but-significant moments as: the anxiety of taking a teenager out for driving lessons, the nostalgic pleasure of watching the [World Series Champion] Cubs at Wrigley Field, the heartache of moving an aging parent into a nursing home, and the quiet bliss of sitting on a cabin's porch under a starry North Woods sky.

Description:

Chosen "Top Ten Best Fiction Books by Latino Authors for 2016" by TheLatinAuthor.com

About On the Run:

New York City, early 1990s: a young, rich, and well-educated Central American man on the run from the police and Colombian drug dealers. He is accused of crimes he didn’t commit. Ready to do what it takes to survive, Pablo ironically embraces the very drug trade that threatened his life in the first place. Who is he? What is he really capable of? The question of identity is at the heart of On the Run. More than a contemporary story of survival, it’s a journey of self-discovery.

Pablo’s voice is funny, sometimes mean and merciless. He moves with nightmarish ease from recounting his adventures to recollecting his early life. Not always politically correct, On the Run gives you an insightful, twisted, humorous, and often disturbing view of conflicting worlds and beliefs: North and Latin America; black, brown, and white; rich and poor; rational and esoteric – and shows how they mix, match, and clash.

NetGalley Praise:

"Very interesting read. Pablo is an intriguing character. He is not as merciless as the description gives him. It is an unbelievable tale; but I enjoyed reading it."
Barbara C., Educator - United States

"Not my usual kind of book but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The characters are interesting and I liked the writing style. Will keep an eye out more books from this author."
Vicki J., Reviewer - United Kingdom

"The book is well researched, hilarious and thrilling... There are some great characters there ...but the best was Pablo’s dysfunctional family. His father, mother, siblings are funny and weird. Highly recommended reading! I would highly recommend the book for thriller seekers and also those wanting a good laugh."
Lata S., Reviewer - India

"This book is so much fun! Pablo is an interesting study of what a person will do when they are pushed to the limit to find out what they are capable of. His own horror at his initial actions is realistic and he then rather than bottoming out he seems to equalise and find his new moral compass... The story is well paced and will completely suck you in!"
Sue D., Reviewer – Australia

"I was very impressed with Amorim’s exploration of identity and self-discovery within such an unlikely context. Pablo’s journey expertly demonstrates just how fragile our identities can be and highlights just how far we, as humans, will go in order to survive... Amorim’s writing style is unlike anything I have ever encountered previously."
Zoie C., Reviewer - United States

"Did love the read. Read it in a day. The writing keeps you wanting more..."
William K., Reviewer - United Kingdom

"Pablo was a real interesting character and I ABSOLUTELY loved his dark humor. This book was a little different than the books i usually read, but it didn't disappoint me a bit."
Poppy A., Reviewer - United States

"This novel is unusual, deviating from other books of similar nature... I consider this book to show political satire, philosophical reasoning which is questionable at times. I did enjoy this book, and would recommend it. Keep an open mind when reading."
Linda Z., Reviewer - United States

"The book is filled with dark humor, but it doesn’t overdo it. Pablo’s behavior always stays in character, even as he struggles to find his own identity and come to terms with how he’s changed... An intriguing read, and one I very much enjoyed. If you like literary fiction with a dark sense of humor, I recommend this book."
Majanka V., Reviewer – Belgium

"I really enjoyed On the Run by Izai Amorim. The story starts with a shooting and the main character, Pablo, being forced on the run to avoid the Feds and Colombians. We follow Pablo on a journey both physical, emotional, and through time to prove his innocence."
Alyce C., Reviewer – United States

Managing Bubbie by Russel Lazega (CreateSpace)

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

Offered by rlazega (author): Your chance to win a print copy of this 20+ award-winning memoir on its way to becoming a movie. Upcoming audiobook starring: Tony Award Winner Linda Lavin, Golden Globe nominees Gavin MacCleod and Lainie Kazan, Academy Award Nominee Renee Taylor, Grammy nominee Judy Tenuta and more.

Description: Her devoted family only wants the best for their Bubbie. Mostly they want to ensure that their matriarch’s twilight years are spent in comfort, safety, and serenity. But how do you manage an aging, immutably stubborn Holocaust survivor who has risen above the squalor of Poland’s ghettos; fled across the war-torn German wilderness; and survived the winter-ravaged Pyrenees alone on foot with three children? You probably don't.

Managing Bubbie is the heartrending, hilarious family memoir by Russel Lazega that recounts the frequently hectic, ever-exhausting trials of one Jewish family in Miami Beach as they try to oversee the care of the elderly, unmanageable Lea Lazega. As they scramble for an acceptable assisted living facility and struggle to get her medication in line, they discover the difficulties of controlling a woman who time and again eluded catastrophe by refusing to be told what to do.

A tapestry of an American family in the 1980s, Managing Bubbie also revisits the Holocaust period to mine the love, hope, and humor that emerged from the deepest despair. Anyone who savors a soft heart with a sharp funny bone will laugh, cry and commiserate with the confounded family who must manage their beloved Bubbie.

In 1938 the War of the Worlds hoax panicked millions of Americans, then in 1988 another fictional media broadcast convinced nearly half of Portugal that sea monsters had risen from the ocean to destroy their cities. A team of CIA agents was sent to study the aftermath of this 6th Skyfall Event in the hope that they could turn it into a weapon of war. When the team consultant turns up dead, everyone scrambles to be the last man standing: the one who will decide if or when the sky falls.

Offered by TimBishop4 (author): Embrace life like never before. Read Two Are Better, and begin your own quest to more adventuresome living!

Description: Getting married for the first time at age 52 was adventuresome enough, but when we added in the cross-country, self-supported bicycle tour, we knew we were in for a ride. And what a ride it was!

After living separate lives 250 miles apart for years, suddenly we were immersed 24/7 in a grand adventure. It was like tossing two wild cats into a pen with only one bowl of food. The cycling surprised us. We couldn't believe how exciting a honeymoon like this could be.

If you've been stuck in a single life for a long time and want out, or you're simply encumbered by the daily grind and in need of your own adventure, you'll find this book not only encouraging but also fair warning for what may be ahead for you! Regardless of your station in life, you'll enjoy a heartwarming account with some engaging travelogue and photos introducing you to new places.

Small-town America and roadside scenes never looked as good as they do from the seat of a bicycle. Come along and find out for yourself!

Wheels of Wisdom by Tim and Debbie Bishop (Open Road Press)

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

Offered by TimBishop4 (author): "Packed with zest, adventure, and love, Wheels of Wisdom offers an unusual combination of joyous living and an appeal to grab each moment and make it count. A great read for those who enjoy a virtual trip with some intriguing insights." -- Lisa Lickel, author of The Last Detail

Description: When we returned from our third long-distance, self-supported bicycle tour, we had accumulated so many unique and compelling stories that we had to share them with others. Our first life lessons compilation, Wheels of Wisdom, brings these "aha moments" from the road to life.

Publishers Weekly and Bookbub must have seen something they liked, because they chose to stand behind our book and let others know about it. So did a New York Times bestselling author, several nonprofit CEOs, and a head coach in Division I college basketball. Publishers Weekly dubbed the book "a road map for life." And according to Bookbub, "Tim and Debbie learned unforgettable lessons of faith that can improve anyone's way of thinking!"

Wheels of Wisdom will inspire you, feed your soul, and challenge you. It will also entertain you and make you smile. You can't read this book without thinking deeply about your own circumstances, reexamining your perspective, and discovering new ways to overcome obstacles. Expect to come away with a renewed mind and new motivation to tackle your own journeys in life.

If you enjoy adventure and what it can teach you about life, this book is for you. As hope coaches on Dawson McAllister's "TheHopeLine" and first-time newlyweds in our 50s, we bring our own special brand of hope to our writing. Wheels of Wisdom is a "seeker's devotional" from two Christians who know how to relate to people—whether they are believers or not.
