Fake News, a historical political comparison of propaganda by Kelly Carey

Fake News, a historical political comparison of propaganda by Kelly Carey

Kelly Carey was struggling to talk to her Fox News watching parents during the election. No matter what she tried to discuss politically, they responded with fabricated stories meant to instill fear and prejudice. It started with a blog, and ended with a book comparing right wing propaganda tactics of conservatives beginning in 1996 to the propaganda efforts of Adolf Hitler himself. Kelly expertly weaves the destructive talking points of the right and the election of Donald Trump into the history and tactics of Hitler and the Third Reich. It's a heavy topic and Kelly manages to imbed some humor into the intensely serious implications of having another hate filled autocrat in power.

Chaos (un)Controlled by Tael

Teenage Rixa Storms is suffocating under her mother's "reverse persecution." The more her mother forces her to worship, the stronger her disdain echoes. She's counting down the days until she can flee to college and never look back, but freedom seems to arrive early when she stumbles across University Heights, a library-in-the-sky world where she can learn to harness elemental power. She is assigned two Guides to aid her studies in Elemental mastery: Azurre, responsible, by-the-book, and always concerned with impression, and Charon, aloof, prideful and considered the Black Sheep by the rest of University Heights.

Rixa soon discovers cracks in the portrait of ‘freedom’ this world represents when she uncovers the oppressive skeletons the school works hard to keep buried.  The prejudicial nature of this alternate dimension erupts into a dangerous chaotic spiral where her real and surreal worlds collide. To emerge victorious, she’ll need to reassess what is truly shackling her, and face years of emotional suppression, or risk losing control of her newly awakened abilities.

Roadmap to the End of Days - a thought-provoking book by Daniel Friedmann

$0.99 (regularly $9.95) 2/23/2017 - 2/24/2017!

Is history a purposeful process with a beginning and an end, or is it a random series of events with neither purpose nor direction? If history is a guided process, are we near the end of the world?

Have we almost completed preparations for the End of Days? What will happen next? When? Are we backseat passengers in this journey, or are we in the driver’s seat?

Daniel Friedmann takes you on a journey to discover what is really going on with Biblical eschatology and the end of the world, and to then glimpse the future and ponder the role you will play in it.

History is a discipline that uses a narrative to examine and analyze a sequence of past events and to objectively postulate the patterns of cause and effect that determined them.

Friedmann looks at history from the supernatural perspective. Every plan becomes suddenly evident when enough of it has played out. Have we reached the point in history where the Divine Plan of history is apparent?

Read Roadmap to the End of Days and discover what is really going on, then glimpse the future and ponder the role you will play.

In this book:

->> Friedmann places world history within the context of the Divine Plan, allowing readers to understand the recent past and what is in store for the future.
->> Learn how the Divine Plan structure is used to examine biblical history from a different perspective, with amazing accuracy and why other experts who interpret the End of Days by deciphering prophecy alone may have it wrong.
->> Put the End of Days into context by examining parallel periods of history that have already occurred.
->> Examine the revelations in scripture coherently and in sequence using the Divine Plan.
->> Learn how the cosmic placement of events, both historical and present, reveals the pattern for future events.
->> A bird’s-eye view of where we have been and where we might go in order to bring us to a new level of understanding and a further questioning of our human origins, purpose, destiny, and our ability to alter the path to the future.

Longing for Home - An engaging historical fiction novel by Lisa Wayman

Longing for Home - An engaging historical fiction novel by Lisa Wayman

The American experience is brought to life through the eyes of Irena, a seventeen-year-old Slovenian peasant who immigrates to the US in 1892. The American dream is not easy for Irena to attain. Irena is first plunged into the deadly cattle wars of Wyoming where rich cattle owners classify poorer ranchers as thieves, leading to deadly conflicts. Irena is forced to leave Wyoming and travel to Chicago where she and her new Irish husband are reduced to working and living in the abysmal conditions of meat packers. They finally travel to Colorado to make their way in Durango, still poor and struggling, but hopeful of finding a place to call home.

Though the history is accurately described without romanticizing the time, the true lure of the book is the relatability of Irena’s story. Irena is just an ordinary looking girl with domestic skills who grows stronger and more resilient through meeting the challenges of a new life in the US. She struggles with what it means to be a woman, a sister, and a wife. She finds her traditional belief’s and societal roles challenged. Her battles with jealously, self-doubt and marginalization will resonate with the modern reader. Her ability to build relationships with others will inspire. Irena’s story, while realistic, is also hopeful. She loves with all her heart and hopes even in the darkest of times.

“Longing for Home” honors the author’s Irish and Slovenian immigrant ancestors through exploration of the challenges and triumphs of the time and the people who braved to risk so much for the American dream.

It has been a year since Cassidy broke Lloyd Tenay out of Riker’s Island and he helped her cross the Shattered States.

The former global superpower is still a blocked off hive of anarchy, chaos, and debauchery, which is why they have carved out a niche as two of the toughest independent mercenaries around.  Seriously, Lloyd has literally carved that message into buildings, vehicles, and two bounties that were wanted dead instead of alive.  Without movies to digitally download and access to Internet cats, you have to make your own fun.

For example, you could decide to shorten your life by stealing Cassidy’s jeep and most of her gear. With her precious baby and gun collection in the hands of an old enemy, the cunning bounty hunter is about to make her serial killer partner seem like the sane one. Pity anyone who gets in their way as they battle from Dallas to Miami, their elusive prey always remaining on the horizon.

It’s time for another action-packed adventure in the Shattered States where there is no law, survival is the only goal, and there never seems to be a lack of bullets and knives.

Sebastian’s Way - a Historical Fiction by George Steger

Sebastian’s Way - a Historical Fiction by George Steger

$0.99 on Amazon, 2/16/17 - 2/18/17!


"He's alive." With these two words, the world as Sebastian knows it will never be the same. The news that his cousin Konrad—his sworn enemy and abusive first husband of his beloved wife Adela—means that his marriage is no longer valid. Even the high king Charlemagne cannot challenge the decision of a powerful emerging Church. Sebastian can do nothing but watch as the love of his life enters a convent.

This epic tale of love and honor sweeps the reader back into the fascinating 9th century world of the incomparable Charlemagne. No mere military account of conquests and battles, this is a rich, well-rounded period drama and an authentic recreation of the early medieval world. Book I of this three-volume series was highly recommended by the Historical Novel Society. The second novel does not disappoint, as the hero is sent from the king’s Rhineland court to three preeminent capitals of the 9th-century medieval world: Constantinople, Jerusalem, and Baghdad. Through his courage under pressure, original ideas, and steadfast service to the king Sebastian has become one of Charlemagne’s twelve paladins, a high honor, but the cost is also high. He loses his beloved wife and family, becomes entangled with other beautiful women, and is submerged into a foreign world of intrigue and betrayal. Becoming a paladin changes Sebastian from a young man of faith and character into a hard-bitten warrior in a ruthless world. Thus the latter part of the novel presents a swirling adventure but also a parable of the ruin and redemption of a professional soldier.

When his father was stationed on Earth to stand watch, the missing pieces of the puzzle began to fall into place.

Tristan was on the brink of his Ceremony where he'd morph for the first time, making his responsibility greater than ever. He was facing a crossroad and a battle had already risen within him between his head and his heart. Would he risk everything, including their lives, or take the safe route and ensure that Ember was out of harms way?"

The Merchant's Pearl - a captivating and unforgetable historical romance by Amie O'Brien

The Merchant's Pearl - a captivating and unforgetable historical romance by Amie O'Brien

What happens when the opinionated, only daughter of a missionary is enslaved and gifted to a Muslim prince who has an inner vow to win her affection?

Sarai was led to believe that the whole world could exchange their beliefs for hers. But when her parents are murdered, she quickly learns that the world never stops for just one person. The world takes, forgets, and swiftly moves on.

By 1875, she isn’t even Sarai anymore. She had spent her teenage years repackaged as Leila, a palace concubine-in-waiting for the overly indulgent, Ottoman Sultan, Abdul’Aziz. Leila does her best to stay out of the eye of ‘Aziz as well as his son, Prince Emre. But when young and thoughtful Emre claims Leila for his own harem, she is forced out of her shell and thrown into a ring of competitive women. Here, she cannot hide from the attention her young master wishes to lavish upon her. Nor can she can avoid the ruthless retaliations of his prior favorite, Aster. But it’s the unexpected gift of sexual sanctuary and an inside look into his family’s struggles that really collides with Leila’s upbringing. Soon, despite her better judgment, she finds her heart becoming increasingly tied to him.

But can she submit her faith and independent spirit to such a future—a future where to be loved means settling for the fact that she can only ever be his favorite? Will she be able to take turns sharing him among the four beautiful girls he had received before her, one being a jealous rival and another a closest friend? And what will happen to their love if Emre’s father can’t hold together his fragile kingdom, an empire that has grave threats encroaching from every side…including within?

Forensic accountant Maggie Martin survives the sudden death of her husband, the charismatic President of Windsor College, only to uncover the secrets of his carefully-concealed double life. Dealing with the financial and emotional wreckage left in Paul's wake, she is stunned to learn he inherited an estate known as Rosemont in the seemingly serene Midwestern town of Westbury. Why had he never told her?

Maggie travels to Westbury for the stated purpose of listing Rosemont for immediate sale, but what she really seeks are answers to her all consuming questions about her sham of a marriage; her sham of a life. She never anticipated the seductive charm of Rosemont. Throwing her trademark caution to the wind, and over the objections of her opinionated grown children, she pulls up stakes and moves halfway across the country, determined to make a fresh start in Westbury. Behind closed doors, however, lurks a cadre of evildoers, playing with multiple wild cards of fraud, embezzlement and arson.

With a quiet, orderly -- and distinctively solitary -- life in mind, Maggie is instead thrown headlong into a crusade against political corruption, where defeat and retreat are not an option. Still bearing the scars of betrayal, will she find joy, romance and possibility in Westbury?

This fast-paced, smart novel has enough twists and turns to make the reader want to buckle in!

Coming to Rosemont is the first book in the Rosemont series.

An enticing tale of the unpredictable power of love . . .

This irresistible debut novel dances off with your heart while lighting the way to love. At once comic and insightful, it's the story of Maggie Chisholm, a therapist who's good at overhauling everyone's psyche but her own . . . until she loses her balance after a hundred-year flood ravages the picturesque town of Sedona, Arizona. Damage to the beautiful home she shares with her husband leads to an encounter with Finn, a local contractor, outdoorsman and self-avowed bachelor. Captivated by Maggie despite his highly guarded heart, Finn can't resist the magnetic connection any more than Maggie can.

Regardless of her longings for a soul mate, Maggie's had enough turbulence in her life; she doesn't need to weather any more of it. Neither does Finn, whose resistance to involvement isn't without cause. Even so, their unfolding relationship evolves into an all-consuming love, as passionate as it is precarious. A threat to their safety, Maggie's alcoholic husband, Martin, mustn't know of her plans to escape her hellish marriage, or another disaster could ensue. But Martin's not the only problem.

Riding the rapids of their desire—as told from Maggie and Finn's separate points of view—their story surges toward a series of unexpected events. While Finn's life veers out of control, Maggie's abusive marriage reaches a crescendo, and dreams are blurred by reality, their love bedeviled by fear. Now Maggie must overhaul her own psyche before regaining her balance . . . with the love of her life.
More than a romance for discerning readers, Natural Disasters is an undaunted journey toward self-discovery. Full of mirth and messages, it invites you to explore a compelling path to the fulfillment of your heart.

Astrabal, the underworld's demon-lord of Iochodran, will stop at nothing to gain possession and control of the weapon. Glahivar, an old and powerful enemy of the Six, is dispatched to Three Rivers, where the Six, and Anwyn, are under the protection of Queen Catrin and her husband, Ambros.

The Queen and Ambros have problems of their own. A threat from the south by Moran, the war-lord of Yor Swamps, is in the making. Glahivar has no qualms in using the situation to her best advantage, to retrieve the skull, use it for her purposes, and—as a bonus—to end Queen Catrin’s reign.

In a breathtaking race to the end, Anwyn and the Six must not only obtain possession of the weapon without killing themselves or causing a catastrophic event, but they must find a way to deactivate it, permanently.

What is Anwyn’s connection to the weapon, and will she and the Six be able to prevent Astrabal and Glahivar from destroying the planet?

Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Career Over 50 - a Career and Business book by John Tarnoff

Boomer Reinvention: How to Create Your Dream Career Over 50 - a Career and Business book by John Tarnoff

$0.99 on Amazon 2/7/17-2/13/17!

Faced with low retirement savings, extended longevity and rampant ageism, the baby boomer generation (born 1946-1964) is in the throes of a career and financial crisis.

With less than 25% of the generation financially prepared to retire, the majority (between 60 70 million Americans) are going to need to keep working for as long as possible. But how can they find jobs or start businesses in a marketplace that appears unwilling to appreciate them for their experience and wisdom?

Career coach John Tarnoff is convinced that the future is promising for boomers IF they are willing to engage with the new economy in a new way. In BOOMER REINVENTION: How to Create Your Dream Career Over 50 Tarnoff lays out a proven methodology of 5 key steps and 23 actionable strategies to give boomers the resources and confidence they need to pivot to a sustainable second act, encore career one that can be not only financially successful, but personally fulfilling as well.

In BOOMER REINVENTION, Tarnoff, a non-traditional career reinvention coach, psychologist, and former Hollywood executive, provides a comprehensive, flexible, step-by-step guide for anyone over 50 to create their second act career. Fired 39% over the course of his 40-year career, Tarnoff shares the secrets to turning his own setbacks into successes, and interviews seven other boomers who reinvented their own careers. Overcoming significant obstacles in the process, they utilized and benefitted from the same methodologies Tarnoff has outlined and shared in this book. He stresses that career reinvention does not necessarily need to be a radical plunge into the unknown. It may, in fact, entail re-committing to and reinvigorating a current job or existing business from a new perspective.

What makes Tarnoff s method so effective are his positive, yet contrarian viewpoints, for instance:
  • Don't try to figure out what job or business you can fit into out there in a sea of job postings. Instead, figure out what job or business is already inside you, 
  • Network your way to the decision makers who will embrace your skills and talents, and make that heartfelt vision a reality. 
  • In order to create a new future, you must reconcile your past. You must first deal with all the old baggage and self-limitations that are likely standing in your way. 
  • Embrace your age, don t hide it. Be proud of who you are and what you can do, and leverage the wisdom and experience you've acquired. 
  • Stop feeling that having been fired or downsized is shameful. At this point, it's time to be grateful for the lessons those experiences taught you. 
For those who both want and need to keep working beyond traditional retirement, Tarnoff s practical strategies offer a flexible DIY solution for late career professionals at any stage of their career reinvention process, including:
  • Your resume won t get you hired. 85% of jobs are filled through referrals. 
  • Use social media to build relationships and an active professional network. 
  • Don t feel daunted by tech: Boomers invented the digital revolution (Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc.) Embrace it! 
  • Nail your interviews by thinking like a consultant, not an employee. Turn the interview process to your advantage and be a problem solver before you even get the offer. 
BOOMER REINVENTION is an indispensable guide to claiming the second act, encore career that is every boomer s opportunity. Now is the time to claim it!
