Running to Catch Up by Peter Flatman

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: Peter Flatman was in his late twenties when he persuaded others to run a brutal road relay in Lancashire despite this being his first race.
He did not look like a runner and was shortish and muscular. Some said his style was ugly. So why was he drawn to long distance running that, at best, only offered blood, sweat, tears, fatigue and pain. Yet killing chickens from when he was 11 gave him a tough edge. Twelve years later he was described by Martin Duff as being the best, if not, the best Vet-40 in the UK.
Peter did not run at school, or as a teenager, yet confounded his critics with national rankings at 25k, 20 miles and the marathon. Peter’s story is enthralling, and he believes it’s never too late to start running. Competing for the RAF and Combined Services gave him the confidence to become the founder of one of the first running shops in the UK.
Be inspired by Peter’s story, how he never gives up and finds a way to cope whatever Fate throws his way. Enjoy the pathos of the free-fall and the joy of the Cleveland Marathon. Peter Flatman was also a successful coach who instilled inner-belief in his runners. A true story of a determined and singular man.

The Wrong Side of the Room: A Life in Music Theater by Norman Mathews (Eburn Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by normanmathews (author): I am both the author and the publisher of this member giveaway.I wish to make people aware of the struggle of a working artist who did not become a celebrity but has an interesting a tale to tell as his more famous colleagues.

Description: Norman Mathews was born in the wrong town, the wrong era, and with the wrong name. What’s a boy to do? He conjured up a more enticing, imaginary world to better navigate the
perils of childhood. Dreams of a life in the theater and of passionate romance were stymied by lack of self-assurance. Psychological abuse by a priest led to absurdly comic psychotherapy over his sexuality. At age twenty, a failed suicide nearly shattered a promising future. From the
ashes of this calamity rose a staggering resolve to build a meaningful life. Byzantine twists paved the way to a career as an editor and eventually a life as a Broadway dancer. As a performer, he worked with Barbra Streisand, Dorothy Lamour, and Gene Kelly. After an untimely injury, he reinvented himself as a pianist, composer, and playwright, for which he created award-winning works for top Broadway and concert-stage performers.

His passionate and inspirational autobiography is steeped in dark humor, hilarious celebrity gossip, and backstage intrigue. It is a rare book that can intimately describe a self-destructive trajectory, recount the grisly murder of a
Broadway conductor, provide an inside look at the embezzlement of a famed Broadway producer, detail an ugly
never-reported rehearsal scene involving Michael Bennett, and give a behind-the-scenes look at the birth of new
musicals and operas. He brings his colorful Sicilian-American family, his triumphs and heartbreaks, and his mine-strewn path to fulfilling love vividly to life. This riveting drama is
a paean to all late-bloomers, proof that no matter how many wrong cards you are dealt, it’s possible, with hope and tenacity, to come up with a winning hand.

Formula: Another HELL Ranger Thriller by Gina Fava (Steepo Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by GinaFava (author): HELL, yes! My new book, FORMULA: Another HELL Ranger Thriller, rolls out in November in ebook and print! Thirsty for a mystery with rivalry, romance, racing, & revenge? Devlin and his crew are back...serving petrol, grappa & a water chaser. I'm giving away 25 FREE ebook copies - I'd love your honest review. Hope you'll sign up. Thank you!

Description: When Formula One champion and covert agent Devlin Lucchesi and his HELL Ranger crew return to the Monte Carlo Grand Prix to win big, a rival racer is fatally poisoned at the finish line. Devlin and the HELL Rangers suspect tainted grappa. They investigate Aurora Vineyard, set atop a hotly contested aquifer in the Italian Dolomites.

Threatened by extreme water rights activists and cut-throat industry competitors, CEO Erika Aurora, dubbed “the Bloodsucker” by the industry, hires Devlin and his crew to hunt down her company’s usurper. The cases intertwine. Devlin deduces that the Aurora siblings may be tangled in a bloody power grab. Things heat up fast when the killer begins targeting the estate’s sibling owners one-by-one.

Soon it becomes clear that a thirst for control and revenge is quenched only with a poison formula derived from the vineyard’s secret family recipe. The stakes soar when the formula’s lethal reach extends to the thousands gathered at a Palio horse race in Siena, including Devlin’s son, and to the world leaders of a global water summit in Verona. Devlin must risk everything to hunt down the killer and halt a poisonous calamity that threatens worldwide ramifications. Thirsty yet?

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

Offered by MichaelDrakich (author): Sometimes a trip into a fantasy world, filled with the magic of the mind is a good place to go, add the intense storyline, the detailed world and a young hero who clearly started out WAY out of his league and it becomes clear that sometimes fantasy characters mirror reality. – Diane at Tome Tender (Amazon Top 500 Reviewer)

I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a good fantasy which is well-written and easy to follow. Well done, Mr. Drakich!
– S. A. Molteni – And So It Begins

Description: It’s been almost a hundred years since warlock meddling freed the demons from their underground domain. Their eventual capture has encased them in large stones across all the lands. They became known as the demon stones. Over time, the truth of their imprisonment devolved into legend and tales to frighten children. Now, the seven kingdoms are in upheaval. The demon stones are being opened and the vile creatures once more roam the land. War has broken open between realms as the fingers of accusation are pointed. Caught in the middle is Gar Murdach, a farm boy who recently passed the age of ascension of sixteen marking him as a man, and his younger sister, Darlee, as they both struggle in their separate ways to escape the horrors wrought by the demons and the war that swarms round them.

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by InkMuse: Thank you for entering the giveaway! If you win, we'll email you with a link to download the book!

Description: The first time the world ended, she went into hiding. The second time, she became a fugitive.

When war breaks out between the Western State and Regent’s Block, two North American political coalitions, Wren Richards is forced into hiding. Her father insists that, as witches, they have more at risk; more to hide. They conceal themselves and their power, living on only what they can grow and create with their own hard work.

But then there is a break in the doldrums of normalcy: Wren is sent to fetch supplies in town. Her younger sister tags along—and then, the atomic bomb hits.

Now Wren isn’t just a witch: she’s a survivor. A slave. A water seeker. A murderer.

She and her sister are kidnapped to another dimension, a mirror of Earth, dying from nuclear winter. Energy is worth more than gold and harder to find. As witches, they’ll fetch a higher dollar at auction. Because as witches, energy can be sourced from their souls.

The only person who can save Wren is herself.

And she’s just been sold to the highest bidder.

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

Offered by paule.horsman (author): I am the author of these stories. I recently published this 3-book box set, and I would very much like reviews of the three books.

I will send copies through a Smashwords free coupon code.

Description: Seventeen-year-old Eskandar is the lowest of the low among the crew of the Navy sloop Tipred. As ship’s boy, he runs messages, gets the dirtiest jobs and tries to stay out of his betters’ way. It is a dull but safe life, for the tired old Tipred patrols a shipping lane to nowhere and nothing ever happens to disturb their peace.

None aboard know Eskandar’s big secret. For he is not alone. In his head lives the voice of Teodar, who has guided and guarded him all his life, and who is teaching him magic. Teodar is a mystery; he won’t say who he is or why he is helping him. Eskandar has stopped asking; the voice is his only friend, and that is all that matters to him.

Life goes on placidly – until the sea monsters appear. To save himself and his ship, Eskandar has to use his secret magic and manages to defeat the monsters. Now his enemies know him and his humdrum life becomes a maelstrom of action – fighting monsters, desert robbers and even more fearful enemies.

Will Eskandar’s barely tested powers be enough against an undead necromancer who wants him killed? And what about those mighty wyrms in the sky, are they friend or foe? Follow Eskandar’s adventures as he gathers a strange band of companions in his battle against terrible enemies in these first three books of The Wyrms of Pasandir.

A Dream of Light by Sara Jo Easton

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

Offered by SaraJoEaston (author): I am the author, and I want to share Eramine's story with the dedicated readers of LibraryThing before it is released to the general public! I appreciate any honest review you give.

Description: Eramine felt uneasy ever since she started having dreams of a winged creature calling out her name. Now a pair of the dream creatures has arrived while she is awake, declaring themselves Onizards and insisting that Eramine has to go with them or their de facto princess will die. The creatures have been terrifying every coastal village as they ask for Eramine by name; with her village as the next to be visited if the Onizards don't find her, how could Eramine not go with them?

Yet now her brother Marinel thinks she is in mortal danger, and he is putting all of his resources as well as his relationship with his newly wedded wife True on the line as he sails after her. He may have even harvested a poison capable of killing the Onizards.

Meanwhile, Eramine's newfound Onizard friends, Rulraeno and Senquena, are both acting as if they have some dark and shameful secret they are hiding instead of mutual feelings for one another. On top of that, Eramine's odd dreams are getting more frequent and are starting to have real-world consequences as she gets closer to the land of the Onizards.

It is a lot for any fourteen year old to handle, but Eramine is determined to make things right. She knows there is going to be a deadly confrontation if she can't figure out a way to reconcile the two species and help them get over their mutual dark past.

When Harry doesn’t return from his quest to seek help to protect the area from the miners, Lainie sets out to discover the truth of her heritage, and of the secret she’s been born to protect.

First and Ten by Erin and Margo Bond Collins Hayes (Bathory Gate Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by MargoBondCollins (author): Review copies giveaway by the authors of First and Ten.

Description: When Madison Harte inherits a football team with three hot players who all want her, there’s one problem: when it comes to America’s favorite sport, she’s clueless.

I have the worst luck. Failed tech startup? Check. Cheating ex-boyfriend? Check. No idea what to do next? Check.

Then my Uncle Dusty passes away and leaves a whole football team to me. Never mind that I’ve never even seen a game. Who has time for that, right?

But I can sell the team and turn my life around, so I fly from San Francisco to Birmingham, Alabama, where I find a whole new level of football obsession—and start to develop a fascination of my own. Mostly with the three players who are very, very interested in me.

I never expected to find a team of my own. Or that there would be so many obstacles in our way.

Luckily, Madison won’t have to choose just one man in this contemporary reverse harem where Friday Night Lights and Bridget Jones collide and where—hallelujah—it’s still raining men.

Description: Why would a school janitor gun down his colleagues in a shooting spree?
What kind of person shoots an elderly piano teacher and then goes to her kitchen to fix

himself a bowl of noodles?

appear that it was the work of her murdered son?

These questions and more are answered in this volume of Murderous Minds: Stories of Real
Life Murderers that Escaped the Headlines, which adds yet more profiles of coldblooded killers

whose murderous deeds defy reason.

In this volume of these incredible real-life crimes, we get inside the mind of a 17-year-old girl
who guns down her closest friends and then goes on the run as a wanted murderer and examine
what possessed a man to become a serial slasher and viciously attack 18 people he did not know.
Fact is often far more brutal than fiction and volume 2 of Murderous Minds: Stories of Real
Life Murderers that Escaped the Headlines, provides you with detailed profiles of these
notorious killers, including their background, the frightening details of their crimes, and the

devastation they left in their wake.

Painting Kuwait Violet by Pamela Q. Fernandes (Solsctice Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by pamelaqfernandes (author): I'm giving away 30 free copies to celebrate the launch of my book Painting Kuwait Violet! If you are intrigued by the Middle East and women's issues there, this book would be an eye-opening read.

Description: In 1996, a young graduate, Violet Baretto leaves Goa to work in oil-rich Kuwait as a maid for a wealthy Kuwaiti woman. To her horror, she finds herself accused of theft, her colleagues assaulted, thrown from moving cars or performing ‘favors.’
Sabah Dashti, the Kuwaiti matriarch can’t tell Violet the truth; nine of Sabah's previous maids have absconded, five of them were found pregnant or that the police think she's running a prostitution ring. Kuwait is still patriarchal and women are second-class citizens. Despite their differences, both Sabah and Violet are hungry for success. But a woman-hating, killer has set eyes on them and will not let them succeed at any cost.
Poignant, chilling and honest, Painting Kuwait Violet underlines the reality of women on either side of the country’s class divide.

The Mask of Sanity by Jacob M. Appel (Permanent Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDFs sent directly via email by the author.

*If you enjoy, please consider adding this book and my other books to your Librarything bookshelf, as this makes future giveaways possible.

Description: On the outside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a pillar of the community: the youngest division chief at his hospital, a model son to his elderly parents, fiercely devoted to his wife and two young daughters. On the inside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a high-functioning sociopath—a man who truly believes himself to stand above the ethical norms of society. As long as life treats him well, Balint has no cause to harm others. When life treats him poorly, he reveals the depths of his cold-blooded depravity.

At a cultural moment when the media bombards us with images of so-called sociopaths who strive for good and criminals redeemed by repentance,The Mask of Sanity offers an antidote to implausible tales of evil gone right. In contrast to fictional predecessors like Dostoyevesky's Raskolnikov and Camus' Mersault, Dr. Balint is a man who already has it all —and will do everything in his power, no matter how immoral, to keep what he has.

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

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDF sent by author. Please consider adding this book and my other books to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: A mystery novel, but also a satire of religious mystery novels (ie. if you are offended by mild profanity or an irreverent rabbi, please do not request.)

From the jacket:
Two elderly spinster sisters––Florence and Lorraine––have lived together ever since the death of their wealthy father, living on generous stipends provided in his will that continue until one of them marries––at which time that sister is cut off financially. The sisters’ family is shaken up when Florence invites them to her wedding. The morning after the wedding, Florence is found dead in her bed. Was it an asthma attack as her new husband and the police believe or did someone enter her room in the middle of the night and suffocate the old woman with a pillow? Local amateur sleuth Rabbi Jacob Kappelmacher is brought in to investigate the suspicious death. He soon discovers that all of the sisters’ relatives stayed overnight following the wedding and could have strangled the old woman in her sleep. So could have the bridegroom. But who did it? And why? With no money and no motive, why would anyone kill the old woman? Rabbi Kappelmacher begins his investigation by interviewing all of the interested parties, intent on figuring out the convoluted and devious crime––and the sinister culprit behind it.

Description: Ashlynn refuses to allow being ditched at the alter from ruining her honeymoon. She turns up at the Resort Royale in Bali minus a husband but determined to enjoy herself. To her surprise she discovers a man in her ultra deluxe villa. A very sexy man at that.

Forced together in close proximity it doesn’t take long before desire flares. Falling into the arms of a sexy stranger is not Ashlynn’s idea of a honeymoon.

She has had affairs with different men notably with Kevin, and a professor at the University of Guyana (UG).

Kevin, who was a teacher with Gwen at St. Cyril’s Anglican School in Georgetown, was fascinated by her charm and intelligence. Buffeted by local political and cultural intrigues their relationship was unsettling and unpredictable. But Kevin was soon drawn by educational opportunities to study mass communications in the United States, and Gwen was left behind in Guyana. While in America he had an affair. In the 1960s and early 1970s, while at school in Oregon, New York, and Missouri pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees he was caught up in America’s social, and cultural revolution.

Indian Immigrant by Biku Ghosh

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: ‘We looked for workers. We got people instead.’ - Max Frisch Indians have been travelling to and settling in Britain since 1600, about as long as Britons have been sailing to India.
Colonialism powerfully altered what being ‘Indian' meant culturally and legally in Britain – a meaning quite differently perceived in India. The lived experience of Indians venturing into Britain varied in their historical context, gender, class and individual circumstances. This fiction tells stories of some of the early settlers who perished in harsh conditions and of the many professionals, who arrived later in Britain to fulfil demands in various public services, successfully integrating into the British society albeit facing many prejudices. Right-wing agenda claims an insular ‘all white-England' apparently under threat from the non-white aliens. Nativist British hostility to immigrants has increased since the Brexit Referendum.
This book tells the stories of Indian immigrants not as an offshoot of race relations but from their perspective.

The Light: A Modern-Day Journey for Peace by Judith T. Lambert (Ann Duran Productions)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by JudithLambert (author): Please note this is a KINDLE version only giveaway and that The Light doesn't come with award stickers at this time. I hope you'll enjoy the book!

Description: This is a KINDLE version only Giveaway! Understand religion from a fresh perspective? Nourish your soul and be prepared to view God differently? Is global spirituality possible? While many have heard of the Near Death Experience, this book is unique, as it searches for the common thread between us, here, in this world. This is not a book on the afterlife or what happens on the other side. There is another way to view this phenomena. Discovering a global context for the Near Death Experience is exciting. A Modern-Day Journey for Peace, winner of five book awards, moves us to consider if the Light of the Near Death Experience isn’t actually the bedrock of religion and the springboard for a universal connection. This modern-day story melds the innumerable religious experiences into a visual whole. The essence of God becomes globally and tangibly defined. This story uncovers our prevailing spiritual unity despite our world’s seemingly different beliefs. Ultimately, there is a powerful spiritual bond we hold with one another. Gods and the names for God have changed in every era, yet one dynamic remains constant—the Light.

Religion’s Common Denominator? . . .The Light
God does not have a religion.
God does not speak a language.
God does not have a culture.
It is we who require these things.
This is a ground-breaking memoir on the Near Death Experience that unveils the roots to a global spirituality.

Turning Left Around the World by David Moore (Mirador)

Offered by davidcmoore (author): I am offering a signed copy of my book 'Turning Left Around the World'.
"A great journey, full of laughter, a few tears and lots of heart. It's romantic and adventurous, amusing and understanding, a story to enjoy" - Claire Ashton, Book Blogger.co

Description: For some people, retirement dreams consist of comfy slippers and gardening. Not so David and Helene, whose dream was of adventure.

They presented Audley Travel,specialists in creating tailor-made journeys to all corners of the globe,with the challenge of exploring the history, landscape, wildlife, people and food in fifteen countries over ten months.

Fortunately, they were up to the task so David and Helene traded their slippers and gardening gloves for 53 flights, 30 trains, 8 boats, 3 cruise ships, 1 light aircraft, 1 hot air balloon, a motorbike and sidecar, countless speedboats, taxis, tuk-tuks, cyclos, and bicycles. And a disobedient horse.

Turning Left Around the World is an entertaining account of their adventure, often intriguing, frequently funny and occasionally tragic. Share their adventure, enjoy the surprises and meet some fascinating people with some unusual customs.
