Always - A Sequel to Second Chances - kindle ebook by Rachael R. Vaughn

http://www.amazon.com/Always-Chances-Rachael-R-Vaughn-ebook/dp/B00MER50MK

Always picks up several months from where Second Chances left off, with
the ramifications of the secrets that were revealed in Second Chances
intermingled with the mystery of the small town's first shocking murder.
Like the first book, this book has also been described as very
suspenseful, mixed with action and romance, and as having twists and turns
the reader does not expect.

Because a black teen from a poor neighborhood is accused of murdering a
white teen from an upscale neighborhood, racial issues and socioeconomic
prejudices heighten the legal drama in the once peaceful town of Mason,
Arkansas.  These issues also end up pitting family members against one
another and driving a wedge between Trey Ross and his girlfriend, Sarah
Williams, who happen to be an interracial couple.

Always contains minor characters with big personalities, such as Judge Joe
Hughes, Officer Stephen Ware, and the police detective, who help round out
the plot and provide a glimpse into some of the attitudes of people who
often work in the justice systems of small towns.

The Versatile Farmers of the North - kindle ebook by Victor Condorcét Vinje

http://www.amazon.com/The-Versatile-Farmers-North-Norwegian-ebook/dp/B00HU4KHI4

This book deals with the socio-economic context of the highly progressive and libertarian constitutional drafts of the Norwegian yeomen in the spriing of 1814. It traces the origins of these drafts back into the 18th century -- in the Enlightenment and the Age of Democratic Revolution. Moreover, attention is directed towards the natural conditions -- topographic and ecological -- under which these yeomen lived and worked.

Being a result of the unique position which the yeomen had achieved by their versatile ways of life and occupations thorughout former ages, they were among the most radical ever produced during the Age of Democratic revolution -- even if though they were produced at a time when a general political reaction had set in in the wake of the Napoleonic wars. Ideals and notions which we take for granted in the Western world today -- but which were not nearly achieved by the turn of the 18th century; freedom of speech and printing, occupational freedom, democratic decision making processes, and so on -- were elaborated on and demanded by these yeomen at a stage in European history when the so-called "Holy Alliance" (Prussia, Russia and Austria) was working in the opposite, reactionary direction. Hence, the very constitutional drafts themselves are subjected to discussion towards the end of the book.

The book also distinguishes itself by the rather unorthodox view of the Swedish monarch in the post-Napoleonic period -- Bernadotte (Charles John) -- who has generelly been depicted as a conservative figure in most history writing. However, the fact is that he was a former French revolutionary soldier and a general under Napoleon Bonaparte, suggests that one will have to search deeper into his background to understand the intention behind his dispositions. In the latter role, he significantly broke with Napoleon over the issue of respect for other people's constitutions, and he obviously sided with the revolutionary Norwegian yeomen in their constitutional struggle in Norway. This manifested itself when he disapproved of the 17th of May constitution adopted at Eidsvoll -- a constitution in which the yeomen's drafts were turned down by the Norwegian burghers and state officials.

Translating Libya - Kindle ebook by Ethan Chorin

Translating Libya:  Chasing the Libyan Short Story, from Mizda to Benghazi

Second Edition, 2014. $5.99, 273 pages

Intrigued by the absence of "place" in modern Libyan literature, Ethan Chorin resolved to find find short stories that mentioned specific locations in Libya, to translate the stories, and then to travel to the sites and describe what he found there.  The result is a mixture of anthology (16 short stories by 14 authors) and unorthodox - and often amusing - travelogue, full of anecdotes from communities across Libya, during the later years of Moammar Gaddafi's rule. 

The 2014 update includes a new, post-Revolution introduction by the author-editor, and a foreword by one of the most recognizable names in Libyan literature, Ahmed Ibrahim Fagih, whose classic "Al Jarad" (The Locusts) is included in the volume. The book has been widely cited as a key reference in Modern Libyan Literature, and features the work of several up-and-coming Libyan women authors.

Ethan Chorin, a former U.S. diplomat posted to Libya from 2004-2006, returned to Libya at the beginning of the 2011 Libyan Revolution to work on a trauma-related project. He is the author of "Exit the Colonel: The Hidden History of the Libyan Revolution (PublicAffairs, 2012)"  He can be followed on Twitter @ethanchorin

WhipEye - kindle ebook by Geoffrey Saign

http://www.amazon.com/WhipEye-Chronicles-Volume-1/dp/0990401308

Samantha walks into a pet store, and an ancient parrot says to her, “Bust me out of here!”

Samantha’s decision involves her in a dangerous adventure with her neighbor Jake that will pit them against monsters, magical creatures, and an ancient evil guardian.

To save two worlds, they will have to decide to risk everything, while facing their greatest fears…



My sister said my working title (The Methuselah Parrot) didn’t work, and I needed a punchy one-word title.

I thought on this for two weeks, before WhipEye came out of the blue to me while watching a movie. I had never seen the term or heard it, and to be honest it sounded goofy and foreign.

However, the more I repeated WhipEye to myself, the more I liked it.

I had to put in backstory to make it work, and that one word, WhipEye, made the plot, the main character, and the world building stronger and complete. In fact, it framed everything for the book. I am still amazed by this.

Operating like this is called living intuitively, and intuition plays a role in WhipEye. Kids need to trust themselves, and learn how to do it.

I also wanted a main character that is in love with wildlife—so young readers can appreciate the beauty of wild animals as much as they do dogs, cats, or other pets.

This story is about heart, loss and love, protecting those who can’t protect themselves, and doing what’s right. Kids need to understand that they can be afraid, and still follow their heart. More than anything, WhipEye is a good thriller, an action adventure that all ages can enjoy.

I hope my readers find WhipEye as thrilling as I did when writing it.

“The best way to prosper yourself is to prosper others.”
                                                                       - Walter Jewell

The first time I heard that advice, I was a very young man sitting at the dinner table with my family.  The topic that particular night was some variation of “What would you like to be when you grow up?”  After hearing my first few ideas, my father shared his simple ten-word suggestion for how to enjoy not only a successful career, but also personal fulfillment.

Today, the lobby of our San Francisco headquarters features an Inspiration Wall that prominently displays my father’s wise words and many others like it.  That wall is the touchstone of what my team and I do every day.  We teach fellow professionals how to enjoy greater success in their worlds by making others more successful.

“Learning to sell efficiency effectively” is a phrase we use quite often in our work.  Having witnessed efficiency decision-making in more than three billion square feet of real estate over the last twenty years, we’ve found that very few people actually know how to sell efficiency.  Most people simply promote it, as if it were a greater good like finding a cure for cancer or housing the homeless.  In some circles, the concept of “promoting” efficiency is so pervasive, you’d think “sell” was a “four-letter word”!

Many people are not very comfortable “selling” even in settings where the notion of selling is not taboo.  Why?  For one, the average salesperson receives less than three days of sales training in his or her entire career.  Moreover, most of that is really product knowledge training rather than teaching someone how to sell.

Second, many sales training programs feature techniques that are no longer effective given the increased sophistication and access to information that today’s buyers bring to the table.

Finally, most sales training programs are one-size-fits-all, as if one could sell efficiency the same way one might sell real estate, insurance, or photocopiers.  Without a doubt, the efficiency industry needs to stop promoting its wares and start selling them. In order for that to happen, many market actors will need training on how to sell efficiency effectively.

The Efficiency Sales Professional Institute is not about “drop and run” training where folks attend a fast-paced seminar to get motivated and educated, only to revert to their old attitudes and habits shortly thereafter. All of our offerings are designed with an eye toward “drip-irrigation” content reinforcement to ensure that lessons learned are consistently applied to drive more sales and move efficiency forward.

Jewell Insights™ is a perfect example of this philosophy.  Each and every day, we publish a short essay via our free ESP Ninja App and email blog.  Each essay either introduces or expands on a topic covered in our in-person and online offerings.  Our workshops offer plenty of innovative mindsets, strategies, and tactics for selling efficiency effectively. Jewell Insights™ provides daily reinforcement that helps those innovations “stick.”

In the words of Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs fame), “innovation without imitation is a total waste of time.”  Our combination of revelation and repetition transforms ordinary salespeople into lifelong efficiency sales professionals. On a related note, one of my favorite quotes is, “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are unwilling to do.” To be successful you need more than a good idea.  Turning a vision into a reality requires real work.

Many of our subscribers have already shared how applying something they had read in Jewell Insights allowed them to triumph in a sales situation, so it was an easy decision to compile some of our favorite essays into a book that would benefit an even larger audience.

You may elect to read this book from start to finish.  Or you might turn to an essay at random when you need a dose of inspiration.  Either way, we’re confident you’ll find plenty of insights that will help you prosper yourself by prospering others.

Concepts of Thought and Emotion: Improving your Outlook - kindle eBook by Dan Cartwright

http://www.amazon.com/Concepts-Thought-Emotion-Improving-Outlook-ebook/dp/B00NHWUHK6

Concepts of Thought and Emotion: Improving your Outlook, at its foundation, is a self-help book for those who wish to gain a facet of control over their emotional stance, and their cognitive outlook as a whole.

However, this book offers something more; a philosophical undercurrent designed to not only give the practical ideas buoyancy, but challenge the perceptions of the reader, and encourage personal reflection.

This book is ideal for two types of people: those who would like to make a definite change in their life, and those who enjoy exposure to new ideas.

The text has many themes, one of which is the mind; explaining not only the subversive nature of it, and the plethora of problems it provides for the average person, but a means of effectively manipulating this modality to deliberately affect emotion.

Emotion, while intuitive to all, holds qualities that most remain ignorant of; the consequences of which can be dire. Some simple postulations and exercises hold the potential to offer relief from such frustrations.

While the text is solution orientated, it highlights the common pitfalls in human actions, and the reasons for engaging in such futile behavioural loops; possibly bringing clarity as to why we exist in such a fragile social ecosystem.

Interwoven throughout, is the subject of consciousness; first, considering its relationship to the mind; attempting to unwind the issue beyond semantics, and the theoretical implications this holds for both the individual, and for the momentum of the human race.

'You. Are. Not. Alone.' - Kindle eBook by W. R. Watkins

http://www.amazon.co.uk/You-Are-Not-Alone-Watkins-ebook/dp/B00KW6UPMK

”You. Are. Not. Alone.” is the debut, semi-autobiographical anthology by W. R. Watkins, that tells the story of a young boy, who navigates his way through the maze of his innermost vulnerabilities, his fears, his hopes and his dreams of life.

"You. Are. Not. Alone." is unique, in the way that the poems are almost diary-esque, with each poem telling a story. A story that offers the reader small glimpses into what it is like to feel isolated, alone and afraid.

W. R. Watkins invites the reader into parts of his life, and hopes to let them know that they are not alone in what they are going through.


Reviews:

"...there is a beautiful sense of "us" that forms, as the title suggests, the foundation of the anthology; that carries you from one page to the next. Although the work is semi-autobiographical, there is not one poem I failed to relate to - whether or not I've been through a similar situation. Watkins' work is personal but non-exclusive...You. Are. Not. Alone. has touched my heart and helped me feel less, well, alone." - L., GoodReads reviewer.

"Related to so many of these stories and came close to tears." - S. Boucher

The Watchtower Chronicles: Rise of the Guardians by Francesca Moore

This ebook will be free to download from Amazon for three days only - 25th to the 27th September. Download your free copy while you can.

www.amazon.co.uk/Watchtower-Chronicles-Rise-Guardians-ebook/dp/B00LU1SRTY

Rise of the Guardians is the first book in The Watchtower Chronicles trilogy. It’s a fast-paced young adult, fantasy adventure and most bookworms can storm through it in a day or so. Although it is marketed for young adults it is the type of ‘aeroplane read’ that can easily have people of all ages hooked in no time.

This book is about four ordinary people who discover that they have extra-ordinary abilities. Each with power over one of the four elements, the Guardians must use their abilities to protect the world from an ancient evil which has re-emerged.

Rise of the Guardians was written while I was at university in Birmingham and so that is where the book begins. Also, several of the characters were based on people that I have met in recent years as their personalities were just too interesting not to be written about. After all, it’s better to write what you know as it makes the read that bit more realistic.

This story is full of Wiccan magic, mythical creatures and mystery. And for those of you who cannot get enough, book 2 ‘Dawn of the Dragon’ will also be available shortly. At the moment it is busy making its transition from brain to page.

Sin Walks Into The Desert - kindle ebook by Matt Ingwalson

http://www.amazon.com/Sin-Walks-Into-The-Desert-ebook/dp/B00K3E3YJC

"Sin Walks Into The Desert is a taut, suspenseful tale without a wasted word or scene. IndieReader Approved. Five Stars." - IndieReader.com

Where's the line between psycho and hero? Twelve-year-old Anderson Kenfax was spending his afternoons prowling the Wyoming prairie, longing after his big sister, and plotting a school bus massacre. Then his distraught parents called in Anderson's uncle, el Viejo. The old man dropped Anderson in the middle of the Arizona desert and taught him to move, think and kill like a predator. Slowly, Anderson became Sin.

Ten years later, Sin gets a call from one of el Viejo's shadowy government contacts. The old man's disappeared in the wastelands. So Sin straps on his guns, grabs his go-bag, and hikes out to find him.

Sin Walks Into The Desert is violent desert noir. But it's also a haunting story about lonely people wandering through barren spaces, searching for understanding and grasping for their own humanity.

Everflame - Kindle ebook by Dylan Lee Peters

http://www.amazon.com/Everflame-Dylan-Peters-ebook/dp/B008QZMX7E

The most difficult part of being an author isn’t writing a book. It’s answering the question, What is your book about? Because what you’re really asking me is, Why should I read your book?  It was over the course of four months and 84,000 words that the first book of the Everflame series was born, and in just a tiny fraction of that time and space, I need to give an answer that sparks your interest.

The short answer is Everflame is a fantasy/adventure novel that takes place in the land of Ephanlarea. We follow the tale of a very young boy who is found in the woods by bears, and raised as a member of their kingdom. As he ages, he is faced with an evil that threatens to destroy his world, and he must quest to prevent that from happening.  It is an epic tale of good versus evil, in a world of adventure and imagination. 

The longer, yet more meaningful answer is that Everflame is about my character, my beliefs and myself. It is a parable of my own personal philosophy and my own journey, and at the story’s very core it is a promise. It is an oath to all who I love and who love me that the man I have become and the man I will always be, will do everything I can to be a strength they can rely on and a constant light amid the darkest of times. In other words, it is the very spirit of who I am that is the Everflame.

In the story, the Everflame is a literal flame that burns eternally atop Gray Mountain, the home of the bears who find the young boy abandoned in the forest. The flame is a symbol to the bears of enduring spirit. It resides as the core of their ethics and all they are. An excerpt from the book sees Whiteclaw, a bear, explain the meaning of the Everflame.

“The Everflame is a symbol. It has no power. It’s just a reminder of something we all have, our spirit. And it is to this spirit that we are accountable. Not to an all-powerful tyrant, not even to ancient creators, simply to ourselves. By making an oath to the Everflame, I am merely making an oath to all that I am. If I break that oath, it is I who suffer the greatest loss, and nothing can change that…We all have the ability to judge our own hearts, and we should all have the courage to do so.”

This becomes the central theme that the two most prominent characters in Everflame, Evercloud and Edgar Shein, must face. It would be too simplistic to label them as one good and the other evil. Instead each character is capable of both good and evil. They have to choose with every new moment which path to take, the path of good or the path of evil. It is these choices that ultimately define who they are.  It is they who mold themselves, it is they who mold their relationships with those around them, and it is they who mold their world.

And so we return to the question I must answer, Why should you read Everflame? You should read Everflame because its central theme is about me, and in the very same way, it is also about you.  Ask yourself, who and what do you live for? Who and what do you fight for? And in your personal battle, will you lose strength and fall into darkness? Or will you live with the Everflame in your heart and be a light and a foundation for those that you love?

As you think about your own answers, I’ll leave you with Whiteclaw’s words to those who faced the very same questions.

“Now you must remember what it is that we fight for… Remember your mothers, your fathers, your sisters, and your brothers. Remember all those who have loved you and remain close to your heart. For it is that love that has seen us through the darkness of this world. It is that love that has been a light. See that light. Feel its heat. Now become that light. For it is now we who must banish the darkness for those who have done the same for us.”

What about Shelby’s boss, who is in line to be the next CEO?
Faced with skepticism from homicide detectives who believe they have solved the case, Shelby races from Seattle to Kauai and then back to the waters of south Puget Sound, piecing together the clues Alex left behind.  Finally, she discovers the truth.  But her battle isn’t over:  she has inadvertently put her three-year-old nephew, Maxey, in the center of the storm.  And now she must save him from those who will stop at nothing – including kidnapping and murder – to protect their careers, their prestige and the wealth they owe to a toy called Monkeyshine.  This novel was a Pacific Northwest Writers’ Association finalist.  Average Amazon rating:  five-stars.

Pirate Raiders of the Star Trek Wars - kindle ebook by Jim Fenn

http://www.amazon.com/Pirate-Raiders-Star-Trek-Books-ebook/dp/B00G5H5GG0

​I was recently inspired to start writing parodies for publication when I solved the basic problem of parodies, they tend to be short and the basic unit of publishing is the book.  My solution?  To write a group of parodies about related films and TV shows and bundle them together.  This gave me immense artistic freedom.  For a well known or older film my entire parody may be only a few paragraphs.  The reader can extrapolate the rest.  But mostly I find it great fun to revisit favorite shows and poke a bit of gentle fun at them.  Enjoy! ​

Blood Exchange by Sandra Hood

http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Exchange-Sandra-Hood-ebook/dp/B00K0VQ634

ON SALE: 99¢ for a limited time! September 23-30

There are vampires in this story (because I’ve been in love with the mystery of vampires ever since catching some Dark Shadows reruns as a kid). But this is not a story about gore. And it breaks some of the "rules." The horrors of Blood Exchange reside less in the paranormal than in the types of choices we sometimes make in society and worse, the ones that are thrust upon us.

When I wrote Blood Exchange, I not only wanted to stick with some of the weird notions I had developed in my youth about how vampirism works, I wanted to explore how we humans react in the face of modern dangers cloaked in the “helpful” hands of government, when and whether true redemption is possible, and what we’re willing to tell ourselves we believe in when the stakes rise to the highest level.

* * * * * * * * * *

Emmalyn Trew followed her husband to Graceville, a town with little to lay its mark upon the map but the First Baptist Church, the smallest hospital in existence, and LifeShare – where Steven Trew manages the most sophisticated blood donor database in the nation.

At LifeShare, blood drives are everyday business, but this time something is different.

Someone is sick. Blood is everywhere.

When Emmalyn rushes her friend to the hospital, she has no idea she is witnessing the beginning of a changing world. Orders are given, and no one objects. After all, people finally have the miracle they’ve been waiting for. Why, then, is Emmalyn so skeptical? Because stories at the hospital don’t match? Because the database at LifeShare may have been compromised? Because no one is asking questions about what they've agreed to give up in exchange for their miracle? Or because the one thing Emmalyn may be asked to trade, she will never sacrifice.

Nicknamed Explorer by her father, Emmalyn discovers the one unlikely place in Graceville where she feels safe. In the face of a world where hope will be dictated and happiness doled out in government-mandated treatments, Emmalyn turns her attention underground. Do the tunnels beneath LifeShare hold the answers that can’t be found along the corridors above?

​Or does the answer lie with the stranger? Pale and secretive, with mysterious silver eyes that seem to follow Emmalyn’s every move, he reveals little other than he is not part of the agreement.

Faith and suspicion collide in this suspense with a paranormal edge where the key players must decide whether they could draw the line between an irresistible promise and the price for attaining it.

Your Side of Midnight - kindle ebook by K. Baldwin and Lyra Ricci

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NF0MCR6

Sometimes dealing with the living can be more hassle than they're worth, and most of the time, they have baggage. Billy learned that the hard way when new people moved into the house he had haunted for two hundred years. Nothing he tried could shake them from their new home, so now, his peaceful afterlife was filled with drama, danger and a family that was in dire need of his style of discipline. With the calm and gentle nature of his best friend, it was only a matter of time before he settled down and began to accept that perhaps change couldn’t be as bad as he assumed it was. At least Gregg, who’d been dead almost as long as he had, didn’t mind the new family.

Nix had always been able to see the dead, and in his opinion, most of the time, they were assholes. Billy was no exception in his opinion. Refusing to be bullied by the disgruntled and often high strung spirit, he helped his family settle into the large Victorian farmhouse in the countryside of Bon Hollow. With his sister in law, her two daughters and his own autistic son, life settled in as normal as it could for the Desmarais family.

As time passed, Billy realized that it was a good call to guard the family zealously when two entities, both hell bent on revenge, decided to target the family.

The General's Ambition, A Master Sergeant Harper Mystery, by M. L. Doyle

http://www.amazon.com/Generals-Ambition-Master-Sergeant-Mystery-ebook/dp/B00N59V0SE

If you've read the first two books in the Master Sergeant Harper series, (The Peacekeeper's Photograph and The Sapper's Plot) you already know Harper tends to get herself mired in unexpected and dangers situations. It’s not like she goes looking for trouble, but when there are lingering questions, she figures, someone has to answer them. Sometimes, that someone is staring back at her in the mirror.

In the first book, Harper meets Sergeant Major Harold Fogg, a British Special Air Service soldier who captures her attention and helps dig her out of her messes. Their relationship, because of distance and duty, has largely been put on hold. In The General’s Ambition, they are finally able to spend some time together, although it doesn’t end up quite the way they’d both hoped.

The General’s Ambition is available for preorder now in ebook format with a publication date of Nov. 1, 2014. Like the other two books, this page-turning mystery takes you into the world of life as a soldier, where duty and responsibilities trump just about anything else.

M. L. Doyle has served in the U.S. Army at home and abroad for more than two decades as both a soldier and civilian. She brings all of that experience to the page in this unique mystery series. A Minneapolis native, Mary currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

Here is the book’s description:
All Master Sergeant Lauren Harper has to do is make it through one final training exercise before thirty days of sun and sand with Sergeant Major Harry Fogg of the British Special Air Service. Thirty days to finally get to know each other … at last.
When a horrific crime interrupts her plans, Harper knows the delay is only temporary. There were plenty of witnesses and the case is open and shut. Besides, Harper won’t let anything spoil her time away with Harry.

BUT DUTY RARELY CALLS WHEN IT’S CONVENIENT

Why would a highly decorated officer do what he did? What if the training accident isn’t an accident? Harper can't shake the idea that there’s more going on than anyone will admit.

The Strange Girl - kindle ebook by Keith Dixon

http://www.amazon.com/Strange-Girl-Dyke-Investigations-Book-ebook/dp/B00N99ERPS

In The Strange Girl, private investigator Sam Dyke thinks he's taking on a very straightforward case: find someone who's gone missing after being released from prison. In fact the case is solved very quickly ... but unfortunately, it doesn't end there. Because the man who was missing was not only an ex-con, but also an ex-cop, and the reason he spent time in prison was because he was hiding something he dared not reveal. Sam takes it upon himself to find out what that was, and despite himself becomes embroiled in both high-stakes gambling and a daring heist.

Sam Dyke is an investigator who relies on both instinct and experience to tell him where to go and what to look for. He doesn't rely on incredible deductive powers, nor on sheer physical strength, to solve his cases. He has wit, persistence and a native cunning - together with a small team of helpers - that combine to make him a very contemporary investigator and a hero everyone can root for.

Pay ONLY What's Fair for Car Repair - kindle ebook by Victoria Stonegate

Kindle Countdown:  Sept. 18-24, 2014

http://www.amazon.com/Pay-ONLY-Whats-Fair-Repair-ebook/dp/B00LW04CQ0

This book is about what to do when your car’s Check Engine light comes on and how to get a fair price for car repair after the Check Engine light has been evaluated.  That means you must first have the problem diagnosed and then get an estimate for repair.  (However, I use this technique for repairs not related to the Check Engine light, which I describe later in this book.)

In the past, I never had much luck getting a Check Engine light diagnosed by any place other than a dealership that sells the same make of my car.  For example, if I had a Ford, a Chevrolet dealership wouldn’t be able to get very far trying to decipher the problem.  I believe it’s because cars have become so computerized that it gives carmakers the opportunity to use software that no other car maker can access.  (However, you may not have to take your car to a dealership to get the Check Engine light diagnosed.  More about that in my book.)

Here’s why I’m so suspicious of car makers.  A Boston TV station ran an investigative report in 2013 about car dealerships.  Did you know that the service representatives – the people who work at the car repair counter – get a commission on every repair they schedule?

I never knew that.  I assumed they were salaried, because I thought only salespeople get commissions.  Why?  Commissions are a huge incentive to make sales.

That means service representatives aren’t really service representatives.  They’re actually salespeople.  In fact, if you’ve ever seen this job advertised on a place like Craigslist, it’s typically listed in the Sales category!  So let’s call them what they really are:  service salespeople.
Service salespeople might not make enough money to pay their bills unless they convince you to commit to the repair they recommend.  A cheap repair means a tiny commission.  A major repair means a much bigger commission.
See the problem?

Here’s a brief example.  When I was in my twenties, a friend highly recommended a dealership when my car needed a tune-up.  She claimed her parents had done business with this dealership for decades and always had a great experience.  When I walked into the dealership, I immediately noticed several huge banners hanging from the ceiling that announced a special on tune-ups.  And yet when I talked to a service salesman, he quoted a price double the advertised price.
Are you kidding me?  I thought.

I pointed at a nearby banner and quoted the price on the banner back to the service salesman.  He didn’t flinch.  His smile never wavered.  He said, “Oh, that’s right.  I forgot.”
Yeah, right.

I’ve always been suspicious of car dealerships.  But the most important thing I learned from the experience that caused me to write this book is that I haven’t been suspicious enough.
That’s changed.  I want to share my experience with you so you can see how bad things had to get before I wised up.  And then I’ll tell you how to prevent service salespeople from doing the same thing to you

Lucifer's Fire by Richard Turner

http://www.amazon.com/Lucifers-Fire-Ryan-Mitchell-Thriller-ebook/dp/B00KVPIAVK

1715 – Captain James Lucifer and the survivors of a doomed ship washed ashore in West Africa wait for the coming dawn and their fate. Handing off a fabled and priceless diamond to a lowly young boy, Lucifer sets in motion a chain of events that will reverberate in the Twenty-First century with deadly effect.

In the present, Ryan Mitchell and his team of former special operations soldiers are sent to find and rescue a group of schoolteachers who have gone missing in war-torn Liberia. Quickly moving into the jungles of Liberia, Ryan Mitchell soon discovers things aren't going to be as simple as planned, when rival factions from outside of Liberia quickly complicate matters when they compete to find the fabled treasure buried by James Lucifer before he met his end and will do whatever it takes to get their hands on the prize.

Wanted: One Ghost - Kindle book by Loni Lynne

http://www.amazon.com/Wanted-One-Ghost-Loni-Lynne-ebook/dp/B00D4FAH42

Wanted: One Ghost is a paranormal romance, fantasy, mystery with a touch of American History thrown into the mix.

Anytime is a great time to read about ghosts, not just Halloween. But add a bit of spicy romance, some fun secondary characters and a plot full of mystery, history and intrigue and you have Wanted: One Ghost. It’s been compared to the classic, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, though my leading ghost is more Old English than New England and the twist in the plot is not what most readers expect. Taking a cue from ghost tours, western Maryland countryside and urban locals, the fictional town of Kings Mill, Maryland is more than what the average citizen thinks. History as the town folk know it is about to change and with it a new outlook for the town and its budding growth. But it will take some feisty citizens, a historian who doesn’t believe in fate and the ghost of the town’s past to make a mark on the map. Anything can happen when you bring a ghost to life. But it takes a village to teach him the modern ways and the heart of a good woman to teach him how to love.

The Alignment - kindle ebook by Kay Camden

To celebrate the release of the second book in the series, THE ALIGNMENT is free on Kindle September 16-20!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GT5N8VI

A cataclysmic love story. Mountains, magic, and an assembly line of stealthy killers. A millennium-old spell that thrusts two people into the heart of danger.

The Alignment is the first book in a new series about two rival families and the people caught between them. Three generations, with a pair of lovers in each: one pair destined, one pair enemy, and one pair tragic.

The destined lovers start it all—if they can manage not to kill each other first.

Trey’s a mountain recluse; Liv’s just made a heartbreaking cross-country move. When he totals her car on her first day in town, he’s in no position to make demands: no police, no insurance company, total control over her car's repair. As if his attitude isn’t enough, she’s inexplicably nauseated when in his physical presence.

Trey’s enemies spot them together and move in on her—through her cabin’s skylight. She’s the one they’ve been waiting for. Trey sentences Liv to protective custody in his own home, but her complaints of nausea are making his drinking habit even worse. If they kill her, he’ll be suspect number one. That’s attention he doesn’t need.

But the stars have their own plan.

With an ancient spell invoked, their problems take a U-turn. He’s heading out for revenge against the family who wronged him, and he needs her help. All she has to do is ingest one homemade dissolving tablet to allow him into her mind–to train her to be just like him.

The answer would be a definite no if she had anything of her world left. If she hadn’t fallen in love with him.

Creating Loyal Brands... - kindle ebook by Simon Uwins

http://www.amazon.com/Creating-Loyal-Brands-earning-connected-ebook/dp/B00LEWPIAU

Marketing needs reinventing.

Where once brands were images created by advertising, in today’s connected world it’s the customer experience (and the sharing of that experience) that now defines a brand.

The traditional marketing model no longer applies: delivering a great customer experience is a company-wide endeavor rather than just a marketing activity. A new approach to building and managing brands is needed.

That's why I published this book: to share the approach I've found to be successful in this environment.

I grew up in retail marketing, where brands have always been defined by the shopping experience they offer.  I learnt the hard way that when your brand depends on the customer experience, you need to earn the loyalty of customers, and to have the whole business living and breathing the brand. Trained in the traditional marketing model, I had to develop a different approach, which forms the backbone of this book.

It's a short, sharp read for a busy world. There's no padding, just tools, insights and advice to enable you to rethink your marketing and your brand. It's built around a simple, but powerful framework to guide the creation of loyal brands, and shows how earning loyalty delivers a virtuous circle of growth.

So have a read, and start reinventing...

What's Done in the Dark: A Mona Baker Novel - Kindle eBook by Krys Batts

http://www.amazon.com/Whats-Done-Dark-Novels-Volume/dp/0692226370

Everyone has secrets, but some secrets can have murderous consequences in Krys Batts’s adrenaline-pumping debut mystery/suspense thriller, What’s Done in the Dark.

Nearly a decade ago, Mona Baker lost faith in everything good upon the tragic deaths of her mother and younger sister.  Out of those agonizing flames of grief emerged a much different Mona, one who viewed the world through distrustful eyes — and who had learned to conceal her fair share of secrets.  Then her daughter, Sophie, was born, the one treasure to come out of her loveless marriage to millionaire Exxon-Mobil executive Aaron Baker.  And Mona was reminded that love can exist in a world in which criminals and connivers feed on the vulnerable.  But now she also knew that the source of her love, Sophie, must be protected at any cost.

Despite Mona’s best efforts to build a safe haven, her life is again shattered when her husband is arrested and the police begin pressuring her to cooperate with their investigation. Initially, Mona flatly refuses—until they drop a bombshell that shakes her to the core, leaving Mona no choice but to help them despite her mounting fears that Aaron’s powerful allies are more determined to see her dead than the cops are to keep her alive.

After barely escaping a series of attacks on her life, Mona is eventually forced to make a desperate decision that sends her down a violent path from which there is no return.

I was asked one morning about the motivation for my book and how it will be presented. My motivation is not simple, nor complex.

I am the only one of my family to be born and raised in Gloucester. I am still in touch with friends from as early as Ms Serio's 4th grade class at West Parish. Some friends did not come into my life till 8th grade with Ms Matson. My friends have all endured heartbreak due to the dangers of the sea. Some have been lucky and have had their loved ones returned, albeit with a few bumps, bruises and hypothermia. Some have died at sea but still were rescued. Others have lost it all and have had the ultimate sorrow for which i can not say I know the feeling.

I want to paint a great picture of Gloucester as a great place to grow up, but it is no movie set. You cant feel emotions from the silver screen. You have to know the soul of a fisherman, a Gloucesterman, a friend, in order to understand why they fish and why they risk it all, every time they leave the confines of the harbor.

The book will show some humor of the lighter side of Gloucester, but in later chapters, I hope for the readers to know the heart and soul of what makes my home town tick.

I promise a range of emotions in this book, where the feelings of sadness may even effect the most hardened man.

When Noelle Cooke inherits a cottage from her British aunt, she also inherits a cottage full of secrets--a locked room, an old journal, an art gallery in financial ruin.

And just when Noelle settles into her new village life and starts to discover the cottage's mysteries, someone from her past reappears—her first love, Adam Spencer.  But an impossible barrier stands between them, and Noelle is forced to make a choice.  Will she risk her heart?  Or will she walk away. . . and lose him all over again?

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M4M2SZ2

Dr. Riggs has been building wealth for over 50 years through several very different and very successful careers. In this book he explains the three basic and easy-to-understand financial concepts anyone can use to help build wealth starting at any age.

(1)  Understand the difference between true assets and actual liabilities.
(2)  Always know where you are in the economic cycle.
(3)  Understand the implications of the coming demographic changes.

But it was during this past year, while he was visiting his 96–year-old mother in a nursing home, that he gained insight into what awaits most of our retirement savings.

The money his mother had earned as a teacher and had frugally saved for over 50 years was rapidly being drained away as she dozed off in her chair. They were taking it simply because she still had it. He had helped his mother to save and invest when he should have encouraged her to spend. He had failed his own mother by not encouraging her to spend all she had earned and saved, while she was still able to enjoy it.

Learn about the plan to enjoy strategically spending or gifting it all away over a predetermined period of time, before the private IRA, 401(k) and Roth retirement accounts are nationalized and redistributed.

Sonnets' Whimsical Realities - Kindle ebook by Jeanette Sobey

http://www.amazon.com/Sonnets-Whimsical-Realities-Dancing-Glowworms-ebook/dp/B00MMLJKVU

Sonnets’ Whimsical Realities, the third book in the Isadoralola Trilogy, contains poems to be read aloud to your private audience or extend to the larger masses of your public. You will discover musical beats and emotional and passionate points of view, which may match your own. When you read the sonnets make the words your own. Let it be your voice! I believe poetry is meant to be read aloud rather than lie dormant upon the page.

These sonnets conform to classic structures of rhyme and beat, but are bursting with contemporary issues filtered through psychological and philosophical paradigms.  There is dancing, there is some politics, but most of all it’s the crazy dance of love that is expressed within these sonnets.  From the longing lusting preliminaries, to the passionate enactment, followed by the inevitable disarrays and disruptions to life.

Poems unlike longer stories, can be picked up and read when you have a few moments to spare and the entire story is available to you. There are always layers of meaning for you to interpret in poems and each time you read one you may discover a different aspect from the previous reading.
