From the mountains of West Virginia to the executive suite of a million-dollar company to marrying into America's most famous family, Marilyn Moss Rockefeller's life has been one long adventure. Rockefeller's childhood reads like a sad country song, but the heartbreak and pain only fueled her determination to grab the world by the harness and ride with her dynamic combination of guts, luck, charm, and intellect.

Along the way, she appeared nude in an art film, crashed a plane and lived to tell about it, and co-founded the iconic Moss Tents. Her memoir Mountain Girl is a moving recollection of a notorious and victorious life—one that shows how a little spitfire and a lot of soul can take a person from barefoot in Appalachia to the boardrooms of industry without losing that special something or selling out. In her own words, Rockefeller writes about a remarkable life that has been "well-lived, and a hoot to boot."

If we're lucky, we all encounter at least one person whose life elevates and inspires our own. For acclaimed novelist Daniel Wallace, he had one hero and inspiration for so much of what followed: his longtime friend and brother-in-law William Nealy. Seemingly perfect, impossibly cool, William was James Dean, Clint Eastwood, and MacGyver all rolled into one, an acclaimed outdoorsman, a famous cartoonist, an accomplished author, a master of all he undertook, William was the ideal that Daniel sought to emulate. 

But when William took his own life at age 48, Daniel was left first grieving, and then furious with the man who broke his and his sister's hearts. That anger led him to commit a grievous act of his own, a betrayal that took him down a dark path into the tortured recesses of William's past. Eventually, a new picture of William emerged, of a man with too many secrets and too much shame to bear. 

This Isn't Going to End Well is Daniel Wallace's first foray into nonfiction. Part love story, part true crime, part a desperate search for the self and how little we really can know another, This Isn't Going to End Well tells an intimate and moving story of what happens when we realize our heroes are human.

Marie Therese Beaudet Martin grew up grateful for the paper mill that dominated the economy of her small Maine town. It was only years later, while working as a nurse, that she and her physician husband Joseph Edward "Doc" Martin came to believe that the area's sky-high rates of lymphoma, pediatric cancer, and lung disease was caused by the smoke and chemicals billowing from the mill's tall stacks both day and night.

Together, they sounded an alarm no one wanted to hear—and began a decades-long fight to expose the devil's bargain the community had struck with the mill, a fight that Terry continued even after Doc himself fell victim to cancer. Martin's memoir, And Poison Fell From the Sky, includes a foreword by Kerri Arsenault, author of the book Mill Town, which includes Martin and her husband.

Advance Reviewers:

“We all need to follow Alice’s White Rabbit if we are seeking the joy of discovery. Sara does just that. There’s never been a trip up California’s Highway One from Morro Bay to Watsonville filled with such adventure. An overnight stop at the real Deetjen’s Inn in Big Sur uncovers a series of supernatural encounters with an amazing cast of historical characters—and in the end, it all seems quite natural. What a way to learn history!” —Liz Krieger, Retired Children’s Librarian & Dan Krieger, Professor of History Emeritus at Cal Poly, SLO; author and columnist on California History

ONE girl’s desperate quest to find magic.

TWO troublemakers determined to ruin her life.

TEN historic ghosts with bizarre stories and offers of help.

Being the new kid in fourth grade is bad enough. But when the Terrible Twins discover Sara’s secret belief in magic, they vow to tell everybody at school after winter break—"What a baby! Everybody stopped believing in magic, like, when we were five, you dork.” Sara only has nine days to prove magic exists before her secret goes viral and her life crumbles into total humiliation.

She discovers unusual allies in a dark closet at rustic Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn—ghosts of clothes who are eager to tell the true stories of the real historical people who wore them. But that’s not all. They come up with a clever and selfless plan to help her—and save magic itself. But does Sara have the courage to carry it out?

Unexpectedly finding her German father’s World War II memoirs in an old suitcase transports author Helga Warren to romantic Paris in wartime, surrender from inside a German bunker on the beaches of Normandy, behind the barbed wire of a prisoner of war camp in Aliceville, Alabama, and on to the start of a new life in America. The author discovers a man full of enthusiasm and the fervor of youth—and a marvelous writer—revealing unseen sides of the father she thought she knew.

One of the few eyewitness accounts of the little-known history of German prisoners of war in America during World War II, Karlheinz Stoess’s story gives us a glimpse into the life of what was known as a Scheuerfrau or “scrubwoman” of the Wehrmacht—an ordinary German soldier at the crossroads of history.

Series: Loveletting (1)

A young woman who learns to become strong in the face of impossible circumstances, and a man who finds light in the midst of overwhelming darkness. Prepare yourself for the first book in a haunting new series...Loveletting.

Fleeing from her home after escaping the murder of her mother, inexperienced and petrified by reality with her horse as her only companion - Charlotte is met by the most notorious serial killer of the nation. His dark past and her dark future collide, in a world filled with dangers far greater than him.

Set in the rugged Victorian west at the end of the 19th century with a myriad of complex characters, all intertwined in a brutal environment that examines the conflicting nature and morality of humanity. Charlotte may be innocent at heart, but the world she lives in is not. Filled with dangers from gangs to cults and a mysterious horror element that persists throughout - the overarching gothic love story fills this thrilling, dark adventure up until the haunting end…leaving the reader with an existential dread so deep that it must be read to be understood, yet craving for more.

This novel is definitely for an adult audience, as the content is very heavy and challenging. It will appeal to those interested in a gothic romance with undertones of psychological horror. Most importantly, this book is a form of literary fiction; as character development is the most crucial factor in telling this story and it does NOT follow the typical tropes of a genre book. Subtle hints to the dark machinations behind the scenes, and interweaving characters who gradually change and grow over time, all work together to create a living world - filled with the unexpected - in which to lose yourself within.

If you want something to read on autopilot, and wish for the plot to follow a certain expected pattern, this is NOT the book for you. This experience will challenge you; a gripping story that will invade you, heart and mind, long after reading.

Engaging, funny, and unflinching essays about coming of age as a transplant patient and living each day as a gift

Adina Talve-Goodman was born with a congenital heart condition and survived multiple operations over the course of her childhood, including a heart transplant at age nineteen. In these seven essays, she tells the story of her chronic illness and her youthful search for love and meaning, never forgetting that her adult life is tied to the loss of another person—the donor of her transplanted heart.

Whether writing about the experience of taking her old heart home from the hospital (and passing it around the Thanksgiving table), a summer camp for young transplant patients, or a memorable night on the town, Talve-Goodman’s writing is filled with curiosity, humor, and compassion. Published posthumously, Your Hearts, Your Scars is the work of a writer wise beyond her years, a moving reflection on chance and gratitude, and a testament to hope and kindness.

“Adina was a brilliant writer, and these pages are imbued with her exuberance, her sharp humor, and both versions of her spectacular heart.” —Ann Napolitano, author of A Good Hard Look and Dear Edward

“This book is so full of life that it’s hard to believe the amazing young woman who wrote it is no longer walking among us. Adina has left an indelible mark on this world. Her extraordinary gifts, her irrepressible spirit, live on.” —Dani Shapiro, author of Inheritance and Signal Fires

Instead, it is an evolution, acknowledging advances in science and social norms, to meet the needs of modern-day heathens. This book explains how the Viking's values and attitudes, adapted to a modern world, can work today to make your life more satisfying and rewarding. It provides guidance on how to incorporate those things more intentionally into your life. The traits and values that this belief system encourages, like honesty, warranted pride, commitment to long-term goals, and the importance of acting honorably will help a person be more responsible, confident, and motivated to achieve whatever they desire.

From Odin we learn the importance of wisdom and the value of life-long learning. Hard work, dedication, belief in yourself, and a sense of purpose are just some of the attributes characteristic of a Norse Pagan way of life. Those traits are also key for successful men and women in almost every career field, including the military, which is discussed in detail. Because it is not just a religion, but a way of life, you will also find information about the function of magic in the everyday life of our ancestors and how it manifests today. How modern-day heathens celebrate special events and holidays and how you can begin to build your own memorable traditions. You will learn the important role of reciprocity in Norse Paganism. Also included are stories from the lives of the people behind the sources, including the ambitious Roman orator Tacitus, creator of the controversial, 2,000-year-old book, Germania. You will learn the real reason why the people of Germania were a "pure race." Spoiler alert, despite what White Supremacists would like you to believe, it had nothing to do with race.

Few know that Mount Everest was discovered by Radhanath Sikdar, an Indian mathematician. Back in the nineteenth century, when the world was learning about Mount Everest for the first time, an unprecedented uprising against the British was fomenting among the Indians. The discovery of the tallest point on Earth became eclipsed by escalating tensions, culminating in the violent Indian Rebellion of 1857.

Based on true events, the historical fiction Deflected explores love, friendship, and belonging in a world strained by intercultural friction. When Sikdar meets Sara Langley at a hunting party in the Himalayas, he is reeling from a lack of recognition for his life’s best work. He meets her again a year later when Sara flees to Calcutta to escape the mutiny. Despite the terrible uncertainty of the time, genuine emotions blossom between the two. Unknowingly though, they are inching toward a reckoning, where their destinies will collide with that of a Christian pastor, a pro-native British policeman, a cult assassin, a wronged sepoy, a khemta dancer, and Sikdar’s nationalist-leaning friend. What was to be a period of celebration for science becomes riddled with betrayal, intrigue, and a heart-wrenching test of loyalties.

Dear Diary,

For two years, I’ve been checking out a town on Earth. I know this one town is only scratching the surface of the planet. There is one curious ritual that I learned, and it’s called “dating.” Demons don’t “date.” It’s pointless to them, seeing as how they don’t believe in love or companionship. I don’t know why humans date either. I’ve seen them, and I can tell they have ulterior motives. There’s something weird about this human. He’s not a wizard, and yet he’s able to block my abilities somehow. He’s worthy of further…study. It’s just curiosity; that’s all it is, I’m sure.

Sunshine, chocolate, puppies. These aren’t the typical words found in most demon vocabularies. But then again, Morgalla isn’t your typical demon. She has a good heart and a terrible secret: she doesn’t like being a demon. Worse, her father is one of the lead demons in Hell and he expects her to follow in his footsteps and wreak havoc on Earth.

During one of her many visits to Earth disguised as a human, she meets Jasper. He’s kind and sweet and unlike anyone she’s ever met before. Does she dare show her true self? Is it possible that a demon could find love?

Despite the many challenges standing in her way, when trouble begins to brew between Earth and Hell, Morgalla must decide: Which side is she on?

For fans of Laura Hankin and Jennifer Weiner, this fresh, clever, and complex debut "mom-com" explores the ups and downs of friendship and what happens when those you trust the most leave you high and dry.

A plucky protagonist who's far from figuring it all out--but powers through with wit and determination--Fallon is a heroine millennial moms will instantly connect with.


Fallon Monroe, mother of one, self-help book junkie, and budding chocolatier, has always relied on her mom friends in the Chicago suburbs to get her through the trials of adulthood. So when her bestie Beatrice inexplicably starts ghosting her and takes all their mutual friends with her, Fallon's left wondering how everything went so wrong. Pushing down a lifetime of insecurities, Fallon doubles down and decides to win them back. First, she hosts an epic Mexican fiesta that goes epically wrong. Then she joins a friendship app but discovers a disturbing secret about one of her new friends.

Just when she's about to throw in the towel on the whole friendship mess, Fallon reads a recently unearthed letter she'd refused to deal with decades earlier--and reading it forces her to finally face the deep-seated fears she'd desperately tried to bury. Now, looking at her friendships through fresh eyes, she must decide between hanging on and letting go.

Fallon is an instantly likeable heroine--as vulnerable as she is determined--and she'll have readers eagerly turning the pages as they join her on an emotional journey into the hopes and fears of adulthood.

In this unique comedy collection, "Don't sh*t in my toilet" uses questionable wit to indulge your humor palate.

"This book is a work of genius!" - Christian H.

"Big nose. Big ears. He still looks like a fuc*ing cartoon character." - Bully from middle school

"I can't believe he wrote a book. Or that I dated him. Gross!" - Anonymous

Take my hand (or not. I may have just scratched my ....) as we journey through a variety of comedy types and styles. We'll explore satire, sketch, surreal, observational, and even some bodily stuff. Sure, there's humor about poop. Butt, there are also different kinds, like abnormal advertisements, new greeting cards, terrible human behaviors (both real and digital), poop (did I mention this already?), and amazing new products, like a product that can give that space between your privates and cheeks a much-needed makeover. It even has some thinkers, like riddles, multiple choice questions, and new euphemisms.

Think of it as lowbrow humor with a hint of that highbrow stuff. It calls out and pokes fun at human absurdity, which is why some people love animals way more than humans. It's the ideal gift for potty humorists and poo enthusiasts, and works for any occasion (except funerals...or maybe funerals?). Best of all, there are pictures!!!

I fully expect this book to cure humanity of all its annoying flaws, resulting in everyone living happy, wonderful lives. What? It could happen.

What does it mean to love our country?

Some Christians see loyalty to America as central to our faith and identity. Other Christians are skeptical that our nation warrants such devotion or attachment. But Richard Mouw encourages Christians to have a healthy sense of national peoplehood that promotes civic kinship and responsible citizenship. He navigates between Christian nationalism on one hand and cynicism about country on the other to avoid the perils of both idolatry and disengagement.

Mouw grapples with sticky questions such as how to honor national holidays in church and the place of protests in forging a more perfect union. Placing love of country in the context of Christian love of neighbor, he sees patriotism as an expression of our heavenly citizenship and a call to help our country be a place where all people can thrive in peace.

Mouw's winsome and wise reflections direct our patriotic affections toward the civic good of others within our churches and in our communities. This guide helps us travel together on a shared national journey toward liberty and justice for all.

He’s a rock star who can’t remember his own songs…and his only hope is a Japanese kid who hates his music.

Waking up from a coma handcuffed to a Tokyo hospital bed is bad enough. Being arrested for assault is worse. But failing to remember his own songs is the final straw for Wood, stage name Driftwood.

Stuck in Tokyo until the trial, he thinks of everything that brought him to that point. Wood traverses the rock scene of the late 1990s – the American South, Europe, the former Soviet Union, and Tokyo – with his bandmate, Jesse, their exhausted manager, Rachel, and a condescending Bassett Hound. Through bar brawls, cattle prods, voodoo rituals, acid trips, and fights over the TV remote, the characters explore themes of race, sexuality, fame, love, and death.

And in the most frightening moment of his life, hope. Hope to rebuild his life with the help of a young woman he met in Tokyo, and a Japanese guitar player who helps fill the terrible emptiness where his songs used to be.

An engaging whirlwind of a novel – The Driftwood Tour is a love letter to musicians and music lovers across the globe.

Though not specifically labeled as "Covid poems,” the poetry in Quarantine Highway strikes to the heart of the universal yet individual struggles of solitude, confinement, justice, isolation and, ultimately, self-reckoning. The poems push and pull between the constantly knocking global news cycle to the stillness of a surreal inner world.

Amid a global pandemic, the ceaseless wildfires of California, a political landscape of turmoil, Millicent Borges Accardi offers us a powerful collection of self-reckoning. —Ángel García, author of Teeth Never Sleep

With an immigrant lens that defies and armed with a linguistic deftness that challenges, these poems grind against expectations and bust open the façade, the nuance, and go straight to the heart. --Norma E. Cantú Author Bio: Millicent Borges Accardi, an NEA fellow, is a Portuguese-American writer. She has four poetry collections including Only More So (Salmon Poetry Ireland). Among her awards are poetry fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, California Arts Council, CantoMundo, Fulbright, Foundation for Contemporary Arts NYC (Covid grant), Creative Capacity, Fundação Luso-Americana, and Barbara Deming Foundation, “Money for Women.”

When an evil presence returns to ignite a war between the worlds, Jay must challenge fate and reckon with her growing powers, or let Aris Magica and the human world perish.

The heroine of A Noble Cunning, Bethan Glentaggart, Countess of Clarencefield, a persecuted Catholic noblewoman, is determined to try every possible means of saving her husband's life, with the help of a group of devoted women friends.

As a last resort, Bethan and her friends must devise and put in motion a devilishly complex scheme featuring multiple disguises and even the judicious use of poison to try to free Gavin.

Though rich with historical gossip and pageantry, Bethan's story also demonstrates the damage that politics and religious fanaticism can inflict on the lives of individuals.

Series: Era Capoeira (2)

In Playing With Fire, Book 2 of the martial arts series, Era Capoeira, we meet Javier Martínez and Luna Michaels. Their story begins with a one night stand. The connection between them is instantaneous. One look into her golden-brown eyes and Javier is hooked. The problem was that he had no business being attracted to Luna or any other woman for that matter, right now. His trip to London was supposed to be a short one. Javier’s life at home in Spain and the past he was still dealing with, ensured that he would stick to that plan.

Luna had been to many of the Capoeira workshops at the school she’d been a part of for years. They were the highlight of the season and she always looked forward to them. This year, however, she meets one particular invitee, who she simply cannot resist, nor does she want to.

When their one night of passion comes to an end, Javier walks away from it feeling guilt-ridden, and Luna, with a little surprise.

She wrestles with these new powers, sometimes teetering on the fine line between light and dark.

Her journey is not without its dangers, and the Dark forces have the sheer numbers to beat the good guys to a bloody pulp of battered bones, or to disappear them into oblivion. Rockwell and the other Gods will need all the help they can get to defeat ancient supernatural forces that want nothing more than to wipe humans off the surface, for good, in the worst way possible.

This book is designed to help you build the foundation for a successful career and a fulfilling life in the first 10 years of your career. During the early stages of a career, and really throughout our lives, we believe it is normal and healthy to ask, Am I Doing this Right? One of the best investments of your time is to learn from the experience of others. We believe you can use the experience, insights, and lessons others have provided for this book to accelerate your own learning and development.

The aim of this book is to channel energy toward creating your future by giving you advice, tools, and the confidence to grow. Most importantly, we also believe you don’t have to sacrifice a meaningful life to have a successful career: In fact, those two goals are complementary, not conflicting. That single lesson emerges powerfully through every hard-earned experience described within these pages as professionals examine how they have integrated their professional pursuits and personal victories.

Our ambition is that this book will serve as a “personal career desk reference” throughout the transitional time between school and professional life and then into the first years of your career. We hope you refer to these timeless lessons frequently because how you interpret their messages will change over time as your experiences evolve.

Voices of Freedom: Contemporary Writing From Ukraine is a collection of Ukrainian writing that aims to introduce the English-speaking world to some of the most iconic as well as emerging living writers whose work is shaping contemporary Ukraine. These are leading intellectuals and moral authorities for the Ukrainian people, whose voices and opinions have helped to synchronize the internal compasses of Ukrainian society in the struggle for the freedom of their country.

Through poetry, short stories, and essays, this collection demonstrates that the desire for freedom and the struggle to achieve it is a theme that cuts across generations of Ukrainian writers and is a central preoccupation of Ukrainian society. This collection demonstrates the unique style and artistry of contemporary Ukrainian literature over the past 50 years. The curated poetry is an instant reaction to the events taking place today, which speaks directly to this current moment and the national psyche. The short stories sensitize readers to Ukraine's indivisible history and the present.

These are accounts of the memory of generations, choices and transitions, self-irony, friendship, love, and the powerful significance of home. The essays showcase the voices of contemporary Ukrainian intellectuals, providing analysis and reflection on what is happening in the present, showing historical connections and parallels, and shedding light on the origins and triggers of war on a mental level. The collection that follows is the story of Ukraine, in the voice of Ukrainians.

***

Proceeds from the sale of this collection will support the cultural community and humanitarian efforts in Ukraine, namely Razom for Ukraine or Hospitallers Medical Battalion.

“I hope you open this book, dear reader, because Ukraine is burning, and I hope you share what you find here with everyone you know, for the editors have gathered for us an anthology that is more than merely a literary compilation; it is a testament from a war zone. But I also hope you will realize, having read these Ukrainian writers, how incomparably talented they are: such memorable imagery collected herein, such inconsolable and yet somehow consoling music. And, above all, such unrelenting witness to atrocity expressed in a language that refuses to be silenced, a language that ensouls and sing with abandon and intensity of truth.

I hope you will share the poems from this book with everyone you know, yes. I know I will.”

– Ilya Kaminsky, author of Deaf Republic

***

“This superb anthology of Ukrainian writers delights us with talented writing across all genres and brings home what it means to be a Ukrainian on the frontlines of freedom. This rich offering helps every American better understand Ukraine: the people, the culture, and the country.”

– Marie Yovanovitch, author of an instant New York Times bestseller Lessons From The Edge: A Memoir; Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine

***

“Voices of Freedom: Contemporary Writing From Ukraine is a brilliant introduction to a literary tradition long overlooked in America. By presenting a mosaic of perspectives, experiences, and forms, this volume showcases the depth, diversity, and resistance of the culture Putin seeks to erase. It’s hard to imagine a more politically urgent literary project.”

– Anthony Marra, the New York Times bestselling author of The Tsar of Love and Techno and A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

***

“Defending Ukraine is not just the job of soldiers on the frontline. Writers, poets, publishers and artists also have their job to do and so this book is the right one at the right time. The more people abroad know Ukraine and understand it, the more they will understand why we need to stand in solidarity with it and with its people.”

– Tim Judah, British writer, reporter and political analyst for The Economist

***

“Judiciously edited, Voices of Freedom offers a superb introduction to some of the most important writers to have emerged from post-independence Ukraine. Today, they also happen to be some of the most important writers in the world. “It is time for Ukraine to tell its story,” writes Kateryna Kazimirova. I’d say the telling is long overdue.”

– Askold Melnyczuk, American writer, founder of journal AGNI and Arrowsmith Press

One big secret to growing older with confidence, dignity and style, is hidden in two words — Chair Yoga.

More than 20% of all yoga enthusiasts are 60 or older, and that number is steadily growing. It’s not surprising to see why.

Yoga has a host of health benefits that improve the quality of life of older adults. It strengthens bones, improves balance and stability, enhances flexibility and joint health, and helps with mobility.

As a result, you’ll be able to keep moving, stay independent, and continue doing the things you love to do, such as taking a walk outdoors, playing with your grandkids, or traveling the world, throughout your golden years.

An added benefit is the beautiful sense of tranquility that descends on you when doing yoga in any form. It can hone your mind into a level of focus, awareness, and calm, that has a positive knock-on effect on every part of your life.

But if you have physical limitations, you may be wondering if it’s possible for you to do yoga.

Not to worry — you can still practice yoga and experience the numerous benefits it has to offer.

And you don’t need to do anything that’s too active or physically challenging either.

There are forms of yoga that are very gentle on your body and easy to do… and you only need a chair to do it.

In this practical and helpful book, you will discover:

  • A guide to empowering yourself, sharpening your mind, and growing older gracefully, using yoga as your powerful, secret weapon
  • What to do and what to avoid when practicing yoga if you have osteoporosis, or recently had an illness, injury, surgery, or a stroke
  • How to feel better faster and keep the momentum going by using yoga to significantly improve your mood, and also boost your cognitive processes like memory and focus
  • How to reduce anxiety, stress, and overthinking, with easy-to-follow, simple mindfulness exercises and meditations that form an important part of your yoga practice
  • Simple yoga poses to loosen your neck and shoulder muscles and relieve any pain and tension you are holding there
  • Leg-strengthening exercises you can do sitting down that will help relieve foot pain, increase circulation, and keep you mobile
  • Yoga moves to build up arm and hand strength and reinforce your torso and core muscles so that you can grasp, lift, and hold things more easily
  • How to easily release tense muscles without having to pay for expensive therapy or massages by using this helpful tool
  • An easy-to-follow 2-week beginners’ chair yoga program you can do at home to start off your chair yoga journey

And much more.

None of the yoga movements in this book will require any great muscle strength or mobility. You can build up each pose slowly, gently, and at your own pace.

Yoga is for everyone, and as you continue your practice, you’ll find that you’re capable of so much more than you think.

Enjoy better health, higher strength, more confidence, and improved mobility with less pain. No matter where you are at, don’t give up on yourself.

Series: Heart of Dragons (1)
There is nothing more terrifying than a girl with nothing to lose.

In the Skarrian Empire, societal class is determined solely by one factor, a factor which no one, neither emperors nor servants, can control: the Marks on their skin.

Those with Marks are elevated to the highest stations of society where they will never want for anything again. However, those who reach their eighteenth year without developing a Mark are swept up in the Reckoning, where they will be chained and forced to toil away at the emperor's every whim for the rest of their lives.

Ayla Helero is a Markless orphan living in the capitol city of Skarria, and the Reckoning is fast approaching. Voices whisper to her in the night, promising there is truth to the stories of dragons that the empire will do anything to suppress. Will Ayla bow down and capitulate to the evil hands that bind her, or will she listen to the voices, risking everything for the chance of a better tomorrow?

Ayla is listening. She hears the voices. She whispers back.

The Markless will rise.

On a strike of luck, an ambassador from the Coca-Cola company gives her the opportunity to travel to the states.

"Masterfully depicted"

"Remarkably astute"

"A thrilling drama, philosophically thoughtful and emotionally gripping"

— Kirkus Reviews

October 22, 1844: Then shall the sanctuary be cleansed

Not a soul wanders the streets. Businesses are boarded up. Farms have been sold. For the people of Calvary—and hundreds of thousands more across the country—the end is near.

Led by the apocalyptic prophecy of Reverend William Miller, the believers have spent the year preparing for Jesus Christ to return at sundown and bring about the rapture. All of his predictions have thus far come to pass, infallible as the Bible itself. Now, as the day approaches, William has mandated that his followers show their true dedication to the cause, no matter what the cost.

Standing against him is a single widowed farmer, Henry Smith, who will do anything it takes to protect what remains of his family from the fanaticism that is overtaking their community. He knows that he just needs to push back until the prophecy is proven false and William's grip on the town is loosened. But when that day comes, will the madness truly stop—or will Henry's world only just begin to come to an end?

***

Based on the actual historical events of The Millerite Movement and The Great Disappointment, Clouds Without Water offers a harrowing account of a society beset by mass hysteria and the lone voices that cry out to stop it.

Take a look at life in the early 20th century through the eyes of a young boy. A natural storyteller, Bud shares tales of his childhood days in rural Missouri. The close-knit farming community where Bud lived with his parents and seven siblings stuck together and helped each other in order to survive.

Born in 1917, Bud grew up on a farm in the middle of America.

Despite many hardships and few luxuries, Bud grows up surrounded by love and optimism. He learns at a young age to take responsibility, respect others, and look to the future with hope. His quaint memoir has charming illustrations and artwork to complement the stories.

Bud’s colorful anecdotes were originally written as a way to share the story of his life with his extended family. Now his tales of childhood in the early 1900s are available for all to enjoy.

Fanny Fitzpatrick has the coolest best friend ever. Athena is smart, and pretty, and brave, and kind. Fanny loves her friend, but sometimes, she feels a little jealous of how perfect Athena is.

But even "perfect" girls make mistakes, and Athena makes a big one when she accidentally turns the school bully into a cockroach. He was picking on their friend Gemma and Athena lost her temper and her magic powers just slipped out right in front of Fanny.

Now Fanny knows that Athena isn't an ordinary girl - she's the reincarnation of a Greek goddess, powers and all - and now she needs Fanny and Gemma's help to hunt down the bully-turned-cockroach and turn him back into a human boy.

Fanny doesn't want to spend all her time looking for a cockroach. She's got the Junior Miss Super Pretty Pageant to prepare for, if she can get over her stage fright. Besides, Athena's Dad, Zeus, has forbidden the girls from meddling with any more cockroaches or magic, and Zeus is a god you don't want to mess with.

Fanny has to make a choice. Should she pursue her pageant dreams, or risk Zeus' wrath to find the cockroach-boy? What's the right thing to do? And how do you hunt down a cockroach anyway?

In the throne room, he was the furthest away from me, but now he’s only inches from me. I could see every detail of him. His orange crown sparkled in the sunlight, like a crystal, and foreign words were carved into the base. His clothes held a weird yet natural texture, he wore a belt that held a sword and ax at his side, and he had large well made shoes.

“I am Dulick Rasheeckma and the King and Queen have granted me your hand,” he said forwardly.

Isla Cunnington is a princess from a dying kingdom that desperately needs help, but when her parents choose an eligible king for her to marry, how will she react when she finds out that her soon-to-be husband is an Orc?

In a world where humans and orcs coexist, it is not unheard of for humans and orcs to be together, but he’s a king! She is set to be his queen, his mate, and the one his people look up to.

How will their world react when they declare their marriage? Will they be able to overcome the problems that come with being different species?

Discover how you can use beautiful surroundings to tap into the limitless power of your chakras and find peace and fulfillment...

In the human body, there are 7 energetic points known as chakras that serve to shape and develop your spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being.

Each of these powerful energy centers works with the others to create harmony between the physical body, mind, and spirit -- but what happens when things go wrong?

When chakras become blocked or misaligned, you may find yourself struggling to express positive qualities.

Rather than being in flow with the Universe, you're disconnected from the collective consciousness and out of alignment in your life.

Without proper attention, these blocked chakras can become the root of physical and psychological ailments like anxiety, depression, joint pain, and more…

So what can you do about it?

The solution is easier than you may expect.

Have you ever heard the phrase "cluttered house, cluttered mind"?

It should come as no surprise that your environment has a huge impact on how you experience life and that creating change in that environment can create changes in you.

Understanding the complex relationship between chakras and color, Linda Beach has compiled all you need to know about chakras to begin changing your life.

With the right guidance, you'll discover how colorful succulents can help balance your energies and get them back into alignment.

In Succulents and Chakras, you will discover:

  • The key to creating an environment that promotes peace and balance using the science of color
  • Why understanding the root chakra is critical to living in alignment, and the role that this chakra plays in creating your life foundation
  • How to avoid the #1 mistake people make with succulents -- and guarantee that your plants thrive
  • Additional self-healing practices that you can combine with color theory for dramatic results
  • Why understanding the energetic system of chakras can help you identify blockages and misalignment in your own life
  • How balanced and unbalanced chakras manifest themselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually
  • The elements, gemstones, planets, and symbols associated with each chakra
  • Specific succulents for each chakra and how to choose the right ones for your needs

Each chakra plays a unique role in how you experience life on both a practical and spiritual level, and understanding these roles is the first step to making positive changes in your life.

Unblocking your chakras doesn't need to be a massive ordeal that requires specialists or expensive courses -- simply developing your inner knowledge and cultivating a sense of awareness can start you on the right path today.

If you're ready to live a happier, more aligned life by sprucing up your home, then start reading now.

A Modern Heathens Guide to Norse Paganism: The Earth-Centered Religion that Empowers Us to Embrace Our Inner Viking and Take Charge of Our FateQuick Look
Digital audiobook

This book is a roadmap for how to live your best life based on the wisdom of Norse gods, as gleaned from myth and lore. Delving into primary sources, the values, priorities, and goals of the people and their gods are revealed.

Norse Paganism is rooted in ancient practices and beliefs. It thrives today, but not without adaptations. The difference is not a shift in core values. Instead, it is an evolution, acknowledging advances in science and social norms, to meet the needs of modern-day heathens. This book explains how the Viking's values and attitudes, adapted to a modern world, can work today to make your life more satisfying and rewarding. It provides guidance on how to incorporate those things more intentionally into your life. The traits and values that this belief system encourages, like honesty, warranted pride, commitment to long-term goals, and the importance of acting honorably will help a person be more responsible, confident, and motivated to achieve whatever they desire.

From Odin we learn the importance of wisdom and the value of life-long learning. Hard work, dedication, belief in yourself, and a sense of purpose are just some of the attributes characteristic of a Norse Pagan way of life. Those traits are also key for successful men and women in almost every career field, including the military, which is discussed in detail. Because it is not just a religion, but a way of life, you will also find information about the function of magic in the everyday life of our ancestors and how it manifests today. How modern-day heathens celebrate special events and holidays and how you can begin to build your own memorable traditions. You will learn the important role of reciprocity in Norse Paganism. Also included are stories from the lives of the people behind the sources, including the ambitious Roman orator Tacitus, creator of the controversial, 2,000-year-old book, Germania. You will learn the real reason why the people of Germania were a "pure race." Spoiler alert, despite what White Supremacists would like you to believe, it had nothing to do with race.

A bone-chilling Chicago winter. Marlo is still dead, Phil the cat still purrs for Old Forester bourbon, and Mack still watches himself from above. But nothing else is as it seems. Mystery nests within mystery. Villainy secrets itself, burrowed within the corrupted hollows of polite society, biding its time. Pressing questions about the mayor and a pick-pocket prostitute on the run from the mob must go unanswered as Raymond Mackey is sidelined in a new job. On the upside, the Chandler Illinois Police Department pays him enough to help take the retirement squeeze off the booze and cigarettes. The downside is the department rule against smoking and drinking. That, and everybody with a badge hates Mack as much as ever.

A welcome diversion shows up in the form of Nadia King, an alluring single mother who asks Mack for some off-the-books help recovering a missing heirloom. The hand-carved Russian nesting doll is one hundred seventy-four years old. Open her up and she's full of secrets. But first he has to find her. Then he has to stay alive long enough to understand that smile on her face.

Mack's road to enlightenment is fraught with danger and littered with cautionary tales. A casino manager brutally beaten into the afterlife by his own employees. A decorated cop shot to death in his mother's home as she listens, bound and gagged, from the kitchen. A dope dealer on trial for allegedly murdering a successful restauranteur in a robbery gone bad. A criminal defense lawyer with pointy boots, a ponytail, and a bottomless retainer. An ex-felon pornographer accusing a cop of running a protection racket. A quiet girl in a yellow coat who knows too much for her own good. And a giant, brick building of a guy named Hell with a broken poker chip in his pocket and Mack on his mind. It doesn't help that trust is in such short supply, or that Big Man is watching him from every corner of the city. Marlo is dead and gone. The only one who can watch over Mack is Mack.

The Gospel of Satan retells the story of Jesus from the point of view of the Devil: In a series of near-misadventures unfolding across the ancient Levant, the Devil, Jesus and his thirteen disciples meet with lions, lepers, prophets, prostitutes and God himself as they struggle to free themselves from the strictures of duty and fate: Jesus chafes no less under the conventional, Pauline construction of his actions than the Devil under his ontological dependence on God. In pushing the other past personal boundaries, each arrives, finally, at a deeper iteration of himself … whilst fulfilling his duty, all the same. Gospel is a road trip story, a buddy novel. Easy Rider meets the Gospels. Part picaresque, part polemic.

Sex, drugs and rock n’roll (well, clubbing): ex-model Nicole has given it all up and now lives a quiet, lonely life, working in an office for an inbred sociopath. She regards the world with a wry, sardonic eye.

Enter D’Artagnan: arrogant, sly, sexy... and very French. Nicole is bemused to find herself being seduced by a man the very opposite of Karl, the love of her life who broke her heart so catastrophically four years earlier.

What Nicole doesn’t know is that the devious D’Artagnan intends to spirit her away to the dilapidated 17th century château he is about to inherit in South West France. Being the owner of 26 pairs of Christian Louboutin stilettos, Nicole is sceptical that life in a château in la France profonde is quite her cup of café. And more worryingly, is she really over Karl? It seems that perhaps he isn’t over her either...

In a dramatic ending she is finally forced to decide who her heart really belongs to: mercurial Karl, or the passionate D’Artagnan?

Since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Stephen Gospage has been writing poems which relate to this conflict. While he finds war in all its forms to be repellent and awful, he salutes the bravery of the people of Ukraine who are fighting for their independence and territory; fighting, in fact, to preserve The Shape of Ukraine’.

The poems in this collection cover all aspects of the war, from the trauma suffered by soldiers and civilians to the plight of the millions of refugees, as well as the propaganda and crass misinformation. Throughout, the author reflects on the pity of war and the tragic waste of life and destruction this pointless invasion has led to.

‘Thank you, Stephen Gospage, for never letting us forget about the war in Ukraine.’

Series: Kit and Tully (1)

Love or Music... Which should they choose and what price do they have to pay? Love will give Kit and Tully a future together, but music can make Tully's dream come true.

When new guy, Tully, falls for sixteen-year-old Kit, he needs to find a way to win her over. Because, right now, she only has eyes for scorching hot lead-singer, Mac Whitehead, who's turning every head in town.

Neither believe a half-forgotten legend is true, but once a sleeping Celtic god awakes, it's too late to turn back, too late to refuse his offer…

Love or Music… you can’t have both...

Neither of them dream the consequences of their fateful choice will poison their relationships, in love, friendship and rivalry, until a mysterious death drives them apart.

Beginning with Tully, the nine books are told from a different character’s point of view. Each narrator continues where the previous one left off.

All except one of them could potentially be a suspect… or a victim…

And while the mystery remains unsolved, each of them suspects one of the others.

What Early Readers Say...

SLHaynes

Breakfast Club vibes!

MidnightRose55

I was really impressed by the authority with which you told a story about Ireland in the 1990s. You have so many details and little nuances that make me feel like I am actually there and it makes your world feel so real.

JaxonBlacc

Also, this story gives me a lot of Derry Girls vibes.

LunarAquarius

Ah, the 90s...the golden age of VHS, tape recorders, and good cartoons.
I'm getting gothic vibes from this group, and I love it!

curiousgeo

Whoah... clout at the the VIDEO store. This was hot stuff in the 80s and 90s. This is fun for me because it's very much my era. I even had a boyfriend who worked in a video store in... 1995 I think. Many many hours spent hanging around there while he was working.

Set in a small Irish town in the 1990s, Kit & Tully is a story of first love, coming of age and a Faustian Pact! (UK English)

Crafted as a retelling of the myth of Eurydice and Orpheus, Iori’s ambitious psychological drama centres on love, death, and loss—and what it takes for the heart to heal. Review by Publishers Weekly

Can you imagine to be able to travel in other worlds and find out that who you love is living a different life without you? A life that you could feel and go through looking for another chance… because let’s be honest, we all make mistakes and often we have thought about a second chance.

This novel narrates the tragic story of two lovers separated by the death. Like Orpheus ventured himself to the land of the dead to attempt to bring Eurydice back to life, Francesco will try to find his beloved beyond the boundaries of the understandable. With his singing and playing, Orpheus, charmed the ferryman Charon and the dog Cerberus, guardians of the River Styx. His music and grief so moved Hades, king of the underworld, that Orpheus was allowed to take Eurydice with him back to the world of life and light. Hades set one condition, however: upon leaving the land of death, both Orpheus and Eurydice were forbidden to look back.

In turn, Francesco will be forced to sacrifice something to find what he thought was lost forever.

She died and he lost his memories of her. A life that, Francesco, feels destroyed, incurable. Rehabilitation has failed. The encouragement of his family was not enough. Friends put aside. Except that, suddenly, after months of unlimited suffering, an old schoolmate proposes an ambiguous solution: to try a substance able to take him into a parallel world to meet his lost love. He must travel through an uncharted reality and bend the law of nature in order to regain lost memories. But in this new reality, Francesco meets another girl and new friends. Who are they and why do they look so familiar? Will he be able to understand the facets of life's deepest secrets?

Readers should expect that, as Francesco edges toward new possibilities, that things are not quite as they seem. (The protagonist did, after all, swallow six mushrooms, press a red button, and agrees to a set of rules for Losco’s regimen that preclude human contact.) But by story’s end it all makes clear emotional sense, and even is touched with wisdom, especially in the final revelations, some wrenching, from Losco. Review by Publishers Weekly

The Red Ear Blows Its Nose is "a dazzling tour de force" (Kenn Nesbitt). Often hilarious, always thoughtful, this debut collection from award-winning poet Robert Schechter proves that he is "clearly one of the most accomplished poets writing for children today" (Valerie Bloom MBE). Complemented by S. Federico's charming illustrations, The Red Ear Blows Its Nose will delight both children and adults alike, and is destined to become a classic, standing alongside A Child's Garden of Verses, Now We Are Six, and Where the Sidewalk Ends on children's and library bookshelves for years to come.

PRAISE FOR THE RED EAR BLOWS ITS NOSE:

Short, punchy, and clever poems, as if Shel Silverstein and Ogden Nash had a baby. Some are only two lines long. My favorite: "When livestock salesmen cannot sleep, / do they lie in bed discounting sheep?" Wow!

-Jane Yolen, author of the How Do Dinosaurs books

What a splendid collection of poetry. Here are poems that fizz with imagination, wisdom, and an infectious exuberance at the sheer wonder of words. Beautifully crafted and terrifically funny, this is a book for children (and grown-ups) to return to again and again.

-Kate Wakeling, winner, 2017 CLiPPA (UK)

You'll feel like a "cool in-the-know one" when you read Robert Schechter's clever collection of poems. This book will open your mind up to a world where foxes cartwheel through trombones, a horse might choose to moo, and you can dive into a lake filled with yellow puffs of popcorn. Children who are reading (and thinking) beyond their age level will love it; you will, too. If you're a fan of John Ciardi and Richard Wilbur and X. J. Kennedy, or Jack Prelutsky and J. Patrick Lewis and Kenn Nesbitt, you'll want to add Robert Schechter to your list of favorite poets!

-Janet Wong, winner of the 2021 NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children

The Red Ear Blows Its Nose is a dazzling tour de force of ingenious poems that sparkle with Schechter's witty, wonderful wordplay. Read this book. Your brain will thank you. Mine did.

-Kenn Nesbitt, former Children's Poet Laureate (2013-15)

Robert Schechter's poems sing with irrepressible joy. His humor, wit, and verbal dexterity make The Red Ear Blows Its Nose a book that both children and adults will want to read over and over and over again. He is clearly one of the most accomplished poets writing for children today.

-Valerie Bloom MBE, winner, 2022 CLiPPA (UK)

Schechter's The Red Ear Blows Its Nose is a masterful collection from a masterful poet. Not only does every poem take you somewhere new, spinning ideas and jokes and thoughts and dreams and facts and observations on the tip of its finger like a Harlem Globetrotter at a showing-off convention, but it does so with such surefootedness, such deft rhythm and rhyme, that the poems are joys to read aloud. They sing themselves out of your mouth and will stick in the minds of kids and grown-ups everywhere they get heard. Schechter, it seems to me, is way up there with the great American kids' poets, a real Shel Silverstein for today's generation.

-A. F. Harrold

It's entertaining-sometimes hilarious, sometimes beautiful, always thought-provoking-and nothing short of brilliant.

-Diana Murray, author of City Shapes, Summer Color! and the Unicorn Day series

A young man naively thinks a treasure hunt will solve all his problems, but bloodthirsty villains threaten to end more than his adventure.

Life was good for Tobias Bramwell until an ambitious treasure hunter named Cass Wolfe tries to end his life. Lucky for Tobias, his survival leads to a discovery that will change his life. Faced with trails at home, and a flood of uncertainty, adventure takes him in pursuit of the Architect’s Prize.

When a washed up explorer with a penchant for cash takes him under his wing, and a young scribe muscles her way into his life, he finds that adventure isn’t always what it seems. In a magical submarine built by the Shipmasons he must travel to new, and dangerous, places under the sea and use his wits to find the treasure first, before Cass ends his journey… for good.

Series: The Free World War (1)

The year is 2265 and Earth is a utopia populated by enlightened and contented people.

During this time virtual reality simulations of past events can be generated using unlimited computing power. One such project stems from the events surrounding a car accident in 1945 involving General George S. Patton. The simulation is used to see what an alternative world would look like without the General, who was killed in the accident.

The simulation shows the utopians our world, where humanity has continued along the same path of destruction it has taken for millennia and the Cold War dominates the latter half of the 20th century.

General Patton understood that communism preached world domination and the U.S.S.R. under Stalin would spread its tyranny throughout the post-war world. He wanted to defeat the Soviets while the time was right. Patton proposed a continuation of the war in Europe and said he could make it look like the Soviets had started it.

The simulation's revelations reveal that contrary to popular belief, it had taken the sacrifices of a war against tyranny for a perfect world to exist.

Jackie Stories: Eight Friends of Jacqueline Kennedy OnassisQuick Look
Digital audiobook

What was it like to meet and talk to people who knew Jackie Kennedy Onassis well? Each of these eight people gave me a surprising look into what it was like to live and work in Jackie's world.

1 Nancy Tuckerman was Jackie's friend from boarding school and also her lifelong assistant.

2 Jackie was wary around Nan Talese, one of the most important people in publishing. Jackie was also envious of Nan.

3 Distantly related to her by marriage, Louis Auchincloss gave Jackie a hard time when she wanted to slip out of the spotlight.

4 Sarah Giles was an editor at Vanity Fair. She worked with Jackie in her apartment at 1040 Fifth Avenue on a book that got them both into trouble.

5 Ruth Ansel knew Jackie via man about town and major photographer Peter Beard. When Jackie had a rare chance to acquire an authorized biography of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie confessed to Ruth why she couldn't do it.

6 Rosamond Bernier gave sold-out lectures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She was married to The New York Times' art critic. Their wedding was at Philip Johnson's famous glass house in Connecticut. Nevertheless, Philip Johnson later proved treacherous both to Rosamond Bernier and to Jackie.

7 Francis Mason advised Jackie when she wanted to switch jobs. The story of how she ignored his advice and managed to remain friends with him is testimony to a high-spirited talent that the two of them shared.

8 Edith Welch and her husband went to India with Jackie. Jackie didn't always behave well on these trips, nor did Edith's husband.

Mickey Collins, son of a drug-dealer, relates his amazing tale from childhood to something approaching being an adult. The streets of Cork, Ireland, is where Mickey learns fine skills such as pre-teen drinking, shoplifting and breaking & entering. However, after Mickey disobeys his mother once too often, a lifetime of pain (or ‘adventure’ as Mickey would see it) descends upon him, as he bounces from one State service to another.

A kaleidoscopic tour through twenty years of modern Ireland’s discarded dregs of society ensues, where we discover an underworld of petty crime and passions-fulfilled to the detriment of all else − most significantly (though not exclusively) to the perpetrators themselves.

…But there is something else. As Mickey’s mother, Tanya Collins, manipulates everyone & everything whilst building her drug empire, Mickey’s navigation of his world reveals a curiously innocent and almost pure Humanity in this most unlikely of places.

Series: Loveletting (1)

A young woman who learns to become strong in the face of impossible circumstances, and a man who finds light in the midst of overwhelming darkness. Prepare yourself for the first book in a haunting new series...Loveletting.

Fleeing from her home after escaping the murder of her mother, inexperienced and petrified by reality with her horse as her only companion - Charlotte is met by the most notorious serial killer of the nation. His dark past and her dark future collide, in a world filled with dangers far greater than him.

Set in the rugged Victorian west at the end of the 19th century with a myriad of complex characters, all intertwined in a brutal environment that examines the conflicting nature and morality of humanity. Charlotte may be innocent at heart, but the world she lives in is not. Filled with dangers from gangs to cults and a mysterious horror element that persists throughout - the overarching gothic love story fills this thrilling, dark adventure up until the haunting end…leaving the reader with an existential dread so deep that it must be read to be understood, yet craving for more.

This novel is definitely for an adult audience, as the content is very heavy and challenging. It will appeal to those interested in a gothic romance with undertones of psychological horror. Most importantly, this book is a form of literary fiction; as character development is the most crucial factor in telling this story and it does NOT follow the typical tropes of a genre book. Subtle hints to the dark machinations behind the scenes, and interweaving characters who gradually change and grow over time, all work together to create a living world - filled with the unexpected - in which to lose yourself within.

If you want something to read on autopilot, and wish for the plot to follow a certain expected pattern, this is NOT the book for you. This experience will challenge you; a gripping story that will invade you, heart and mind, long after reading.

He’s a rock star who can’t remember his own songs…and his only hope is a Japanese kid who hates his music.

Waking up from a coma handcuffed to a Tokyo hospital bed is bad enough. Being arrested for assault is worse. But failing to remember his own songs is the final straw for Wood, stage name Driftwood.

Stuck in Tokyo until the trial, he thinks of everything that brought him to that point. Wood traverses the rock scene of the late 1990s – the American South, Europe, the former Soviet Union, and Tokyo – with his bandmate, Jesse, their exhausted manager, Rachel, and a condescending Bassett Hound. Through bar brawls, cattle prods, voodoo rituals, acid trips, and fights over the TV remote, the characters explore themes of race, sexuality, fame, love, and death.

And in the most frightening moment of his life, hope. Hope to rebuild his life with the help of a young woman he met in Tokyo, and a Japanese guitar player who helps fill the terrible emptiness where his songs used to be.

An engaging whirlwind of a novel – The Driftwood Tour is a love letter to musicians and music lovers across the globe.

In the always-connected, always-online digital age and social media world, we tend to forget how life was before the ubiquity of laptops, tablets, mobile devices, smartwatches, and so on. The terms such as outsourcing, offshoring, nearshoring, and many more did not exist. The Indian IT industry was in its infancy.

Aithal takes us on an exciting walk down memory lane as he weaves his narration to pen his experiences migrating from Mumbai to New York—a culture shock. As the title suggests, the story combines his experiences in settling down in America and the dawn of IT opportunities. Both, adjusting to the social life in the US—where he faces the challenges of day-to-day life--and the professional life.

Peppered with humorous anecdotes in his early years of settling down in the US, the story makes an easy read with revealing details that many second-generation Indian-Americans are unaware of.

  • Do the words Organizational Development (OD) intrigue and excite you?
  • Do you want to know what role they play in the life of an organization?
  • Would you like to know more about what an OD practitioner actually does for an organization?
  • What exactly is an OD intervention through which change is introduced into an organization?

Organizational Development Essentials You Always Wanted To Know answers these questions and many more. It is a ready reckoner for people who would like to know more about the subject but do not know where to start.

It seeks to provide an understanding of the still relatively new and evolving discipline of OD along with its key characteristics, core values, and goals. In order that it is not confused with some other disciplines like Change Management and Human Resource Management, a distinction is also drawn between them.

The book builds the theory of OD around the concept of constant change and suggests that organizations need to move from change that is thrust upon them to change that is planned, with the help of OD interventions.

The book also discusses the 5 stages of OD interventions - Entry, Diagnosis, Implementation, Evaluation, and Institutionalization in detail. The discussion is rounded off by discussing the OD practitioner’s core competencies, skills, ethical issues, and knowledge required as well as the expectations the organization has.

The book is an ideal pick for managers and leaders in organizations who wish to acquaint themselves with all the aspects of OD. It will be a useful guidebook for students and help them explore the field of OD for a prospective career.

This book is part of the Self-Learning Management Series designed to help students, managers, career switchers, and entrepreneurs learn essential management lessons.

A refreshing YA debut from Canadian author Melanie Bell, perfect for fans of Rainbow Rowell, Becky Albertalli, and Nina LaCour.

Melanie Bell has created a compelling coming-of-age story, featuring a bisexual protagonist, for those that can relate to the search for untapped potential.

Liberté Egalité, Sororité
From murder to bear hunts to the deconstruction of the guiding principles of an entire religious sect, Sister Liberty is a fully-fledged revolution. Independent Book Review


The narrative is both whimsical and entertaining, even as it crescendos to a shocking conclusion. Booklife


1885. When murderous circumstances force the widows Annie and Euphémie, and the precocious Auguste, to flee their French village, a quartet of missionaries from the Church of Solemn stow them away withing the Statue of Liberty's head on a steamer that reaches New York after a deadly tempest. From New York, the missionaries usher the refugees to their staid village of Solemn in southern Indiana, where pleasure is forbidden in the name of God.

The villagers embrace the refugees while avoiding certain delicate subjects, such as the relationship between the widows, and Auguste's endless blasphemies.

These delicate subjects become unavoidable when Solemn is tapped to host the All-Tent Revival. The Revival calls itself "a multi-denominational marketplace for God." More accurate would be "a time-bomb composed of two-hundred rival factions of late-19th-century American crack-pot religious sects."

Guess who sets off that bomb.

______

Dear Reader: Sister Liberty is a feminist non-romantic/non-erotic book about 19th-century French lesbians trying to survive in a southern Indiana religious cult. It is not whimsical* or cute or quirky. However, it is shrewd, absurd, hilarious, and utterly unconcerned with tropes, genres, commercial success, or the insecurity of zealots.

Please adjust your expectations accordingly.

_____

*Yes, I know.

Series: Era Capoeira (2)

In Playing With Fire, Book 2 of the martial arts series, Era Capoeira, we meet Javier Martínez and Luna Michaels. Their story begins with a one night stand. The connection between them is instantaneous. One look into her golden-brown eyes and Javier is hooked. The problem was that he had no business being attracted to Luna or any other woman for that matter, right now. His trip to London was supposed to be a short one. Javier’s life at home in Spain and the past he was still dealing with, ensured that he would stick to that plan.

Luna had been to many of the Capoeira workshops at the school she’d been a part of for years. They were the highlight of the season and she always looked forward to them. This year, however, she meets one particular invitee, who she simply cannot resist, nor does she want to.

When their one night of passion comes to an end, Javier walks away from it feeling guilt-ridden, and Luna, with a little surprise.

[NOTE: Can be read as a stand-alone]
