The Sicilian Job (Doing the Business Book 1) - Humor by MT-B

"The Ultimate Spaghetti Western"  - Lee Van Cliff

"This imbecile MT-B's driving the business along the Highway to Hell, and we're all riding shotgun"  - The Harvard (Lampoon) Business Review

"Probably the funniest book written about business since my own seminal rib-tickler 'In Search of Excellence'."  - T. Peters

Business isn't all about bottom lines, P/E ratios, gross margins, office affairs and IPO's. No Siree! Sometimes it involves avarice, absurdity, paraphilia and an oddly distinctive Prince Albert. Such is the case in this comic tale about the titanic clash between two competing business models, one a Texan telecommunications company (a gung-ho bastion of capitalist gunocracy) the other La Cosa Nostra (a deeply conservative citadel of crime and corruption).

The bullets fly, as do pigs. The shit hits the fan and the fan fights back. The Indians are relaxed because the cowboys are preoccupied looking for an Italian take-out in the ultimate spaghetti western. But events do not begin deep in the heart of Dixie nor in Sicilia, that partially deflated football being kicked by Italia's boot out of the Tyrrhenian Sea toward the Western Mediterranean, but in the decrepit post-industrial town of Middlehampton in the English Midlands.

After surviving the week from hell it was early one fateful Friday evening when Memphis Bell, the European CEO of Texan American Telecom (TAT), received an unexpected phone call from an unknown Sicilian. The caller conveyed a business proposition that he simply couldn't refuse.....but then again Memphis didn't want to.

Forget all those "phony" telco wars where companies "surfed" and "slammed" in order to steal customers from one another in this battle of the businesses the stakes are actually higher than some of the participants.

Along with their boss Silas Marshall TAT's cowboys from the companies 'Aching Butt Ranch' ponied up, mounted up and moved on out across the pond to tackle the Mob. They were not intending to see Naples and die but they were going to Sicily to PROSPER! They were hot on the trail of George Custer, the company spy and his mysterious buddy Mister Smith both of whom had gone missing after leaving a trail of wreckage in their wake the scale of which inspired the Cosa Nostra to create their first reality TV show.

Meet the show's stars as the Mafia get medieval on their ass. The get-rich-quick delegates of PROSPER! (TAT's multi-level marketing subsidiary) wreak their good-natured havoc in Catania. The cowboys bring the Wild, Wild West to Italy's deep South as they mingle and fraternise with the locals. Meanwhile TAT's Executives scheme, plot and plan the weirdest anti-Mafia strategy yet conceived by man. Of course, not everything goes according to plan. In fact very little of it does..........Now read on!

Chronically Me: Flushing Out My Life And Times With IBS by Joy Spencer

Free from Nov. 30th to Dec. 4th, 2015!

After trying to deal with my chronic IBS for many, many years, I decided to use my drawing "chops" and my sense of humor to make some lemonade out of lemons. And that lemonade was the creation of this book. There is something to be said for drawing cartoons and finding the humor in situations that are traumatic, sad, or just plain ridiculous in life . I've always loved doing that, and I think this time I have put those cartoons to good use.

The book starts at the beginning of my IBS saga, on my honeymoon in Hawaii. I became very ill with some kind of intestinal bug or parasite, and this was the start of what I later learned was "Post-Infectious IBS". Not terribly romantic, and many troubling symptoms never went away.  I then entered, and got caught up in the world of traditional medicine and alternative therapies. These experiences provided fertile territory for my cartoons. I have spared no one...Doctors, clueless friends and relatives, hucksters and charlatans. Life goes on, but now my take on living with IBS is part of it!

"Five Stars - A Masterpiece both in its illustrations and content" Jeffrey D. Roberts MSEd, BSc, Founder, IBS Self Help and Support Group

"Five Stars - Heartbreaking, heart-warming, and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny, this book does an amazing job of capturing what it is like to try and live a life turned upside down by IBS" Dr. Barbara Bolen, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Expert

It doesn’t seem to matter what he does, the school is out to get him, but why?

It’s not until the dark figure tries to kill him that he realizes he has to solve the mystery of the missing boys to understand why he is a target. With Amy’s help, he might be able to figure it out and stop the evil entity, but with Ricky not wanting to include her and his own self-doubts keeping him from acting, the evil may have already won.

Scandalicious Book Reviews of Romance Books

Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t sell, and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan.

Enter the star editor, MacDermott Ellis: Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author—now as forgotten as last year’s bestsellers and his nephew Nick: Tall, gorgeous, sweet, single, and ready to sweep Kate off her feet. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions.
As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn’t on the bestseller list this week,” she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more romance and sex, more celebrities, and more scandal.

Includes Book Two:

Publishing: An industry of out-of-control of egos, unrealistic expectations, and books with the shelf life of milk. This is Kate’s world, but for how long? 

When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, she thinks it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold onto but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. When her career and love affair hit their expiration date, Kate sets off on a new adventure….

Starting over in California is easy, but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn’t. Nicholas Lavigne is eager to help her forget, but two things still own her heart, the dream of discovering the next great American novel, and MacDermott Ellis. As Kate tries to rebuild her life she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest bestsellers publishing has seen in ages and she's welcomed back with open arms. At the height of her success the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she'd been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart. Behind the book, there’s always more to the story.

Welcome to Publishing, the ego has landed. 

I read the first book which was brilliant! So I was very excited when the second book came out. This one was better than the first! It pushed the limits with the steamy scenes in the bedroom and the affair that Kate and Mac had. Always, in an affair there will be obstacles to get past. Some of the things that happen in the book makes me wonder how accurate the description of the publishers job is. I'm assuming it's pretty accurate. Kate finds herself growing and becoming more focused on herself so she can make a difference in her field, which any one would do in her shoes. I really felt book one was great but this one blew it out of the water! Great book! ZootZoot - Reader review in romance and sex category!

A Light Behind the Door - A Travel Story from Beyond from Janka Jakobi

0,99$: 26.11.-29.11.15!

When Ursula awakens after her operation, she finds herself not in a hospital bed but in another phase of being—and she realizes that there is no death ... and that “death is a truly simple matter.”
Unlike her life. Here Ursula always had to fight: as a child, for her mother’s love and approval; as a woman, for the love of men, with the feeling that she didn’t deserve happiness; as a single mother, against her own guilt feelings; and, finally, against her illness.

In the afterlife, Ursula encounters Celine, her soul guide, who greets her up by the ceiling of the operating room. Celine ushers her into the new world and accompanies her through frightening, confusing, and uplifting experiences. Through her past life review, Ursula gains deep insight into her being and existence. Connections within the “warp and woof” of life come to the fore, and many things take on new meaning in retrospect.

Meanwhile, in this world, Ursula’s daughter Sabine tries to come to terms with her grief and to settle the estate of her deceased mother. In the end, both manage to process their life together as mother and daughter: Sabine in this world, Ursula in the world beyond, and both together in an intermediate world that Sabine can access in her dreams.

The loss of her mother inspired the author to grapple intensively with the subject of the afterlife. The results of her research and her experience with her own grief led to this “travel story from beyond.”

Death is not the final stop. It is the transition between two worlds. Through this little story, those who are mourning will be able to experience one version of what the life of the deceased might look like ... but not must—because everything could also be completely different! Religious convictions play no part here. Regardless of their beliefs and conceptions of the afterlife, readers are encouraged just once to contemplate life from another perspective and see themselves within a larger context.

Notes from the author:

Technology plays a big role in the novel as it is the crutch humanity uses to press on in existence. An alien bug like species also comes into play when the settlers of the new world conflict with the planets natives. The story is loaded with symbolism and hidden meanings. The world building serves to paint a vivid picture of a Future not all that far from the reality in which we all live today. No matter what walk of life you come from, Future Winds tells a tale that serves to entertain you while also opening your mind. The point of view story telling for Future Winds really helps in being diverse on the ideas of sacrifice, greed, and morality.

A Click Than Changed My Life - romance (true story) by Victoria Vorel

Two people in the Autumn of their lives, from totally different cultures met on Internet, as the last chance to find love and appreciation........ and it worked!

Why would you like to read this book?  Maybe, you are alone and having the same feeling of loneliness or withdrawal I had some years ago and this true story could help you to take a risk and make the change you need in your life, to be happy again or even for the first time.

My marriage failed from the very beginning, but I was stubborn enough to continue trying to make it work; unfortunately I was the only one who did, so after my two kids graduated from college, I decided that the time had come to separate, there was finally no more chances or excuses.

I was in my 50’s, so I believed that for me romance and true love would only ever be found in books. What I did not know, was that I was about to live my own magic story, which I have documented in this novel and I would love to share it with you.

“A Click That Changed My Life” is a book that shows everything is possible at any age.  Love does not know barriers. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing each page… honestly, it is exactly the way it happened.

Wish in One Hand - a paranormal suspense by B.E. Sanderson

‘Be careful what you wish for.’

In hindsight, Jo Mayweather should’ve taken those words seriously back in 1926.  Of course, spoiled brat, flapper-girl that she was, Jo probably would’ve made the not-so-clever wish that turned her into a genie anyway.

Being endowed with phenomenal power may have its perks but, for the most part, life’s been a pain in her tiny hiney.  After running into a ‘slash first, ask questions never’ genie, her problems only worsen. Some demented thing is making wishes that can’t be granted and djinn are dying. Now, instead of freeing her brethren from their bonds, Jo has a killer to neutralize.

If she’d kept her mouth shut ninety years ago, she wouldn’t be in this mess.  But she’s got a job to do despite some reject from a bad B-movie trying to ruin everything she’s worked so hard for. Too bad this time doing her job might get her killed.

Or worse - enslaved again.

Alexander Ranch - romantic suspense/mystery by Marla Josephs

Excerpt: I tried not to look at the men so that I could focus on keeping my movements silent. I certainly did not want to be detected. It was impossible, however, to keep my eyes completely off the terrifying drama unfolding before me. I was certain they planned to kill the man and I had no way of helping him. The best I could do was get to safety and call the police. I had slunk my way to the left of them and was right alongside the river now. I crept along keeping a wary eye on the men. I don’t know whether I gasped, screamed, or made a sudden movement, but suddenly both sets of eyes of the evil men turned towards me just as the shot sounded. I ran as fast as I could, ignoring the ripping pain in my side, and jumped off the edge into the rushing water below.

The Kiev Connection – a mystery/thriller by M.A.R. Unger

Forensic facial reconstruction artist Matti James attracts corpses like a magnet. Whether she’s walking her dog after a desert rainstorm, driving a sports car through Vegas, or diving in Lake Mead with a search and rescue team, bodies are sure to turn up. Finding human remains in less than pristine condition seems only natural to Matti, given her job. Recent activities within the Russian mob have kept her busy. Unfortunately, her Petrovsky neighbors are known by police to be highly placed within that organization. In fact, Alex Petrovsky is awaiting trial for attempted murder, not just any attempted murder, the attempt on Matti’s life. When two horrific homicides occur near Las Vegas, she learns once more that killers don’t want victims identified. Worse than that, the female victims are mad as hell they’re dead. That’s right. When Matti talks to the dead, they sometimes answer…with unintended results. As Matti works to complete these two reconstructions, she realizes she’d seen one of the victims with her lover. Worse than that, she’d spoken to both women shortly before they were murdered. Did her questions inadvertently cause these Russian hookers to die—or is something more sinister involved? Prepare for a wild ride as Matti investigates with or without official sanction.

Unidentified - Sci-fi/Horror by Mikel Wisler

Fans of The X-Files will be thrilled with this dark and twisted tale of alien abductions and paranormal activity.

"Unidentified is full of spookiness and reversals and surprises and fun. I can't wait for the movie."
- Dave Schmelzer (Editor-in-chief:

One year ago, a boy mysteriously went missing after claiming to have been abducted by extraterrestrial beings multiple times. No trace of him has ever been found.

Now, Boston-based Special Agent for the FBI, Nicole Mitchell, is brought back from administrative leave when a girl in the same New Hampshire town also claims to have been abducted. The girl's story bears eerie similarities to the case of the missing boy Mitchell investigated the year before. It quickly becomes clear to Mitchell that time is of the essence as in a matter of three days the girl will vanish for good.

Certain that someone is using the powerful suggestion of UFOs and the alien abduction scenario to kidnap these kids, Mitchell enlists the help of paranormal debunking psychiatrist, Dr. Alan Evans. While Dr. Evans shares Mitchell’s certainty that little grey men from space are not behind what is happening in this case, he believes there might be other psychological traumas at work behind the scenes that Mitchell may not be able to slap cuffs on. But who among the locals knows the truth? Is it the girl’s parents, the peculiar new pastor in town, the local police? As the case unfolds, Mitchell and Evans are confronted with a much darker and far more sinister reality than they could ever have expected. Nothing could have prepared them for what they are about to encounter.

Pit of Vipers - historical fiction by Millie Thom

The 9th century story of King Alfred of Wessex and Eadwulf of Mercia continues to unfold against the ever increasing threat of Danish raids. After years as a slave to the Viking Danes, Eadwulf has returned to his Mercian homeland and settles to a life of calm domesticity, marred only by his constant desire for revenge. His frequent absences from his new home, connected to his past life, threaten to destroy the relationships he has fostered and alienate the family he has come to love.

In Wessex, Alfred, now a young man, has spent his childhood at the successive courts of his father and older brothers, learning the skills of diplomacy and leadership. Before too long those skills will be put to the test.

The Danish invasion of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms in 865 is merciless and relentless. Every year more Norse ships come to join their comrades in a quest to plunder for wealth and gain control over the people. The Wessex king is now Aethelred, Alfred’s last surviving brother, and Alfred becomes his trusted second-in-command.

And Eadwulf follows vital leads to the objects of his revenge.

Just Dreams by L.J. Taylor

Driven, ambitious, and brilliant trial attorney Kathy Brooks wasn't looking for love when she took on a high-profile wrongful death case brought by bestselling novelist Charles Morgan, Jr. against a powerful government defense contractor.  In fact, with her dismal relationship track record, love was the furthest thing from her mind.  She had all but given up on it.  Having clawed her way up the ranks to make partner at a top tier law firm, she was looking to further her career by winning the case and making a name for herself. Little did she know, however, that her client's secret agenda would raise the ire of rogue government operatives and mercenaries alike who would stop at nothing to make the case go away – including blackmail, kidnapping and murder.  To make matters worse, the undeniable attraction between them was darned inconvenient in light of the rules forbidding relationships between attorneys and their clients.   What started out as the case of a lifetime for Kathy could end up causing her to risk her heart, her career and even her life.  Just how far are she and Charles willing to go to get the win?  As the body count rises and the stakes get higher, they’ll have to risk it all if they want to prevail - and it still might not be enough.

Shadow of the Raven by Millie Thom

An adventure tale of Viking raids, ill-fated thralls, noble kings and their sons, and friendship and love. But, above all else, a tale of unforgivable betrayal and the ever-present desire for revenge…

The life of Eadwulf, ten-year old son of the Mercian king, is changed forever when his family is betrayed to the Danes by his treacherous uncle. In a Danish raid, his father is killed and his mother is raped. And along with his tutor and childhood friend, Eadwulf is captured and taken to the Danish lands to be sold as a slave.

As a thrall in Jarl Ragnar’s village, Eadwulf’s life is hard, his days unbearably long. But on the return of Bjorn, the jarl’s jovial firstborn, from his summer raids, Eadwulf’s life greatly improves. Under the protective wing of Bjorn and his crew, he spends the next few years sailing to places he’d never even dreamed of, trading and raiding. And though he’s still a thrall, he becomes a well-respected member of Bjorn’s closely knit crew.

But through it all, the smouldering desire for revenge on those who destroyed his family refuses to abate.

Eadwulf’s tale plays out against the backdrop of events unfolding in Wessex in the face of escalating Danish raids. Alfred, the fifth son of the Wessex king, faces family tragedies from an early age, losing first his mother, then his beloved sister when she is married to the new Mercian king. At his father’s court and the successive courts of his three elder brothers, he learns the weighty art of kingship. And, like Eadwulf, he learns the harshest lesson of all… that a trusted kinsman can so easily turn traitor.

Fly Over Down Under - An Aviation Travel Biography by Michelee Morgan Cabot

Green ants that defend their tree by attacking anyone who touches it...a mysterious lava-tube cave with hikers' flashlights floating like fireflies down into its blackness...fruit bats noisily lobbing mangos onto your cabin's tin roof. The beauties -- and dangers -- of the crocodile-infested Kakadu National Park. A crash landing at a remote island airstrip...a rugby match in Northern Territory (and why Aussie girls never "root" for their teams). 

In this colorful and remarkable book, written by a colorful and remarkable woman pilot, you'll find the most enjoyable way to discover Australia -- by flying a light airplane to its places of greatest interest while watching the exotic landscape unroll beneath you. Vistas of giant paisley patterned earth, caused by underlying salt strata. Stunning views of red landscapes, uplifted and contorted during the earth's primordial boil. The enormously long white beaches of Western Australia, lonesome and edged by brilliant aquas. And the Indian Ocean to the south, marked by hundreds of miles of cliffs. Whales breed there...You could get lucky.

You don't have to be a pilot to enjoy this book. The author wrote it also for non-flyers, in non-technical terms, to let you see amazing things that pilots experience from their very special perspective. You'll want to read it, re-read it, and share it with your friends.

About the Author 

MICHELEE MORGAN CABOT has been flying for nearly fifty years, logging more than 5,000 hours of flight time, including these in Australia. She holds a commercial license (both single engine land and glider) with instrument rating and a tow pilot endorsement.

Walking in Grace with Grief: Meditations for Healing After Loss - a spiritual self-help book by Della Temple

"I've come to think that grief is two-fold. It's the painful longing for the physical presence of our loved one and it's the emotional heart ache we feel as we disengage from these unfulfilled dreams, the sorrows of what could have been. The stories of a live unlived." Della Temple

Part memoir and part meditation guide, Walking in Grace with Grief combines Della's story of loss with teachings of energy awareness, mindfulness, and conscious living. Filled with stories of hope and profound confidence in life after life, providing comfort and nurturing for anyone dealing with loss
Della Temple believes it's time to broaden the discussion about death and dying. It may not be necessary to walk the normal stages of grief: from anger, denial, bargaining and depression to the final destination of acceptance. She believes that others too can start at acceptance and stay there throughout their journey of recovery. This might fly in the face of what's considered "normal grieving", but what the author experienced during her period of mourning was an amazing feeling of ease, comfort and nurturing - what she refers to as Grace - that kept her from drowning in the mire of doubt, wishful thinking and regret. The book includes meditations for healing that are easy to follow and useful for not only the most pressing moments of grief and loss, but throughout your lifetime. Join the author on a journey of healing, comfort and Grace.

Exiled to a luxurious penthouse fortress on Park Ave. and trailed by security teams wherever she goes, Sylvie Jenkins feels like a virtual prisoner. She made the mistake of falling in love with her boss, reclusive bestselling author and billionaire entrepreneur, Connor Hudson. He’s a strict, demanding Dom, who imposes rules and metes out punishment. He wants her total submission, but she’s not inclined to give it. They’d been living together in his rustic mansion in the Adirondack Mountains until the day police arrived and informed Connor he was the prime suspect in a series of grisly murders. People who loved him had a habit of turning up dead!

Without a word of explanation, Connor sends Sylvie away. She feels abandoned and betrayed.
He refuses to take her calls or answer her texts or emails unless it concerns the book they’re working on. Yet he continues to micromanage her life from afar, using surrogates to spy on her and impose his will. Connor tries to stay away from Sylvie, but he can’t. She’s rebellious and reckless when it comes to her safety. He’s determined to rein her in. If she behaves like a foolish willful child, he’ll treat her like one. Their meetings are clandestine and sporadic, filled with painful discipline followed by the most exquisite pleasure.

Sylvie becomes jealous when Connor starts squiring other women to society events. He tells her it’s to throw the "real" killer off the track. But Sylvie has her doubts. She can’t help feeling he’s slipping away from her.

Realizing she knows almost nothing about Connor’s background, she decides to search the apartment for clues to his past. She discovers a locked door hidden away in a closet. Behind it is a room filled with photos of his former lovers and portraits of his murdered fiancée: bound, blindfolded, and gagged, skin bruised and welted, being violated and degraded. Sylvie had always known Connor had a dark, almost sinister side, but she hadn’t thought him dangerous or cruel. Now she wondered…if he was capable of such brutality, what else was he capable of? She kept telling herself Connor wasn’t a murderer. But the question remained, if he wasn’t…who was?

This is book #2 in the erotic romance murder mystery thriller series IN HIS KEEPING. It has a cliffhanger ending. The story concludes in IN HIS KEEPING: CLAIMED coming Valentine's Day 2016.
