Be careful what you wish for… Heartthrob Ty Walker always gets what he wants. So when he announces on a press tour that he's ready to give up his playboy ways and start a family, he's confident the universe will provide him with the fairy tale future he's envisioned – and completely unprepared to come home a week before Christmas to find an eleven-year-old girl sitting on his doorstep with a note claiming she's his daughter. Ty has never been on close terms with responsibility, but even his oh-so-capable assistant can't wave her magic wand and fix this one for him – not when she's about to fly home for the holidays for a family wedding. Taking her movie star boss and his potential daughter home for Christmas isn't on any of Andi Cooper's carefully crafted agendas. She knows Ty is nothing more than an overgrown child who uses his heart-melting smile to get away with murder and she's immune to that smile…until she sees it on the face of a vulnerable little girl. Clement, Minnesota, here they come. But when they arrive in her small town, Andi begins to see a different side of her boss. Could there be more to the playboy than she thought? Could he actually become a good father? And could a movie star really be interested in his glamour-less assistant? Could they actually become the family he was wishing for all along?

Synopsis for the Zaftan Troubles series An alien mining ship discovers a mineral rich planet. Unfortunately, the planet has intelligent beings, an added burden for the aliens. The natives — humans and fantasy creatures — are just entering the Industrial Age so the aliens enjoy a huge technological advantage.. An alien negotiator startles the President by suddenly appearing in his office. Soon, the aliens and the government agree to a deal. In return for permission to mine the minerals, the aliens promise to solve the country's pollution problem caused by using peat as fuel. The aliens parachute down a number of explorer robots to search for mineral deposits in a rural area. The local constable, Leslie Higginbottom, told by the government that the robots will respect property rights, sees a robot damaging property, and she sends a telegraph to Dun Hythe, the capital asking for an explanation. Another robot trespasses on the property of a dwarf gem miner named MacDrakin. Using his battle ax, MacDrakin destroys the machine. Other robots are destroyed by Goyra, a tribal chieftain of the local yuks, because the robots entered tribal lands. The aliens protest the loss of their expensive robots and Dun Hythe instructs the constable via telegram to protect the robots and arrest anyone who destroys a machine. Higginbottom is besides herself. Protecting the robots is contrary to her oath to protect the citizenry. Besides that, MacDrakin, her main squeeze, tells her he killed a second robot and this one actually fired a weapon at him. After that, MacDrakin declares war on the aliens and their machines, collects a few warriors and sets out to drive the aliens away. The aliens, to avoid an unprofitable voyage, decide to overwhelm the natives. Confusion and chaos occur from then on, but in the end, the aliens are driven off the planet and leave behind a treasure trove of advanced technology for the natives to learn from. Three hundred years later, the zaftans and the gundies have an armed encounter in deep space as two powerful fleets of warships face off. While the fleets challenge each other, two females struggle to survive. One, named Sam, is a new type of android with an organic brain. She is perplexed by her unexpected ability to experience emotions. Her primary emotion is loneliness since the softie officers she is supposed to work with treat her with open contempt. The only friendly voice on the battle cruiser is the ship's main computer, called Slash 9, and it has turned rogue and plans to evolve to a softie-like state. Slash 9 is also interested in romancing Sam. Meanwhile, Klatze, a beautiful Zaftan officer blessed with talent and ability, a rarity in the zaftan navy, comes to the attention of the fleet's commodore, Gongeblazn. He lusts after her and her continuous refusals to have sex angers the commodore and his lust turns to thoughts of vengeance. Gongeblazn's desire to slaughter Klatze continues after his navy career is cut short by treachery. Gongeblazn escapes from prison, steals a space ship and embarks on a career in piracy while searching for Klatze. Sam and Klatze each face unique situations that test their mettle and their desire to survive in the midst of chaos.

But now that she’s hit the road, destination unknown, Sadie’s decided it’s time to disappear for a while and find out exactly what it is she wants out of life. But first she needs to change her flat tire and that is easier said than done when one is wearing…   A bunny suit!   Ex-cowboy star Rafe Masterson thinks he’s seeing things at first but yes—that is definitely a female head sticking out of the furry white bunny suit, tangling with a spare tire.

Seller: Video Mantis Productions Inc.


This book is designed to teach you everything you need to know to make your very own cables. We will touch on what equipment to purchase, how to stay safe while operating the equipment, and even demonstrate techniques and examples of how to make different types of cables. We will also teach you how to assess damages in the field, and how to get your lavaliers fixed faster, in less ideal situations.  Soldering, in its easiest explanation, is the process of fusing two things together using a metal alloy, called solder. This metal alloy is a substance made from two or more metals.When you fuse two pieces of metal together, you create a solder joint.  Very few tools are needed to actually perform the soldering process. However, there are a bunch of accessories that make the job easier when the job gets more technical.  The soldering process is not a difficult task to learn, but it does take a little bit of time to master…  Do NOT expect your cables to look amazing overnight – or for you to make a perfect cable the first time. However, don’t worry, with a little practice and the guidance of this course you will get up to speed as quickly as possible so you can focus on the audio rather than just the cable making!  If you follow along with some of the basic tips, you will be on your way to saving money and making cables that are just as good as many you can buy. They may even be better, because they were not mass produced. Machines do not necessarily make better cables. They just make things fast and cheap.  We are going to take you into the world of cable building and repair and show you what you need to buy, how to maintain your equipment, & how to be safe on set.

153 years in the future, Earth doesn’t look much like it used to Holly Danger’s current assignment, gleaned from a set of foggy instructions and a handful of coin stuffed into a slot, is to pick up a street kid who’s about to terminate himself off a cliff. And, as a rule, she doesn’t turn down currency. Her job as a salvager keeps her fed and clothed above the norm, which isn’t saying much. The norm in this city is a scrape-by existence in a post-apocalyptic world, where the rain never stops, food is always scarce, and the elite have deserted the ranks in search of something better. Picking up this urchin won’t take much time, even if he’s located outside city limits. Her craft is fast, her weapons deadly, and her tech has been optimized as well as it can be for a climate clogged with iron dust. But things take a big turn when she decides to become the boy’s guardian instead of hand him over. Outskirts have descended on the city, and their plans don’t include playing nice. When her crew is backed against a graphene wall, it’s a good thing her Gem is primed and ready to go. It’s almost as deadly as she is…

Now that she’s finally a free woman and with him 40+ hours a week, well… he’d love to persuade her to throw in her nights and weekends. So Noah decides to romance her by day.

"Stephen Merlino is a complete storyteller–a writer with wonderful ideas, surprising twists, a complex and enviable style, all of which culminates with a powerful emotional climax. It really doesn't get better!" —David Farland, New York Times Bestselling fantasy author * * * A Rogue & Knight Adventure Harric, an outcast rogue, must break a curse on his fate or die by his nineteenth birthday. As the day approaches, nightmares from the spirit world stalk him and tear at his sanity. To survive, he’ll need more than his usual tricks. He’ll need help—and a lot of it—but on the kingdom’s lawless frontier, his only allies are other outcasts. One of these is Caris, a mysterious, horse-whispering runaway, intent upon becoming one of the Queen’s first female knights. The other is Sir Willard—ex-immortal, ex-champion, now addicted to pain-killing herbs and banished from the court. With their help, Harric might keep his curse at bay. But for how long? And both companions bring perils and secrets of their own: Caris bears the scars of a troubled past; Willard is at war with the Old Ones, an order of insane immortal knights who once enslaved the kingdom. The Old Ones have returned to murder Willard and seize the throne from his queen. Willard is on the run and on one final, desperate quest for his queen. Together, Harric and his companions must overcome fanatical armies, murderous sorcerers, and powerful supernatural foes. Alone, Harric must face the temptation of a forbidden magic that could break his curse, but cost him the only woman he’s ever loved. * * * A tale of magic, mischief, and the triumph of tricksters. * * * REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS "The first volume in Stephen Merlino's 'The Unseen Moon' series, The Jack of Souls is a terrific read from beginning to end and clearly establishes Merlino as a master of the fantasy action/adventure genre. Highly recommended for community library Science Fiction & Fantasy collections…" —MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW * * * "An epic ride, a magical world, and fantastic characters that grab your imagination and won't let go… The Jack of Souls has it all." —Corinne O’Flynn, USA Today Bestselling author of The Expatriates series. * * * "This is a book where characters are on a clock and the stakes are high. Comparisons could easily be drawn with the works of Tolkien or Martin… Merlino weaves a tale of swords and sorcery that somehow finds new ways to take readers down the well-worn path of fantasy literature. Tolkien’s influence can be found in the beautifully described environments of the story and the depth of the cast of well-developed characters. The comparison to Martin is mostly drawn because the Tale of Fire and Ice series is often acclaimed for its interpretation of real-world, human stories through the lens of fantasy." —Awesome Indies 5-star Review "Of all the books I've read in the past couple of years, The Jack of Souls is by far my favorite. Merlino's remarkable imagination and storytelling skills had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through!" —Karen Duvall, author of Darkest Knight, and Demon Fare. * * * "A rich and rewarding new fantasy mythos!" —Rob May, author of Dragon Killer and Roll the Bones. Multiple Award-Winning Fantasy Novel Winner of the 2016 Independent Publishers (IPPY) Silver award for Fantasy. First Place Winner of the 2014 Pacific Northwest Writers Association award for fantasy.

24 October 2114: the day that shocked the world.  Young diplomat Cory Wilson narrowly escapes death in the assassination of President Sirkonen. No one claims responsibility but there is no doubt that the attack is extraterrestrial.  Cory was meant to start work as a representative to Gamra, the alien organisation that governs the FTL transport network, but now his new job may well be scrapped in anger.  Worse, as Earth uses military force to stop any extraterrestrials coming or leaving, as 200,000 extraterrestrial humans are trapped on Earth, as the largest army in the galaxy prepares to free them by force, only Cory has the experience, language skills and contacts to solve the crime.  But he's broke, out of a job and a long way from Earth.

Avatar , al igual que el cine en general, nos permite acercarnos al misterio del hombre, evidentemente no con un método filosófico o científico. Lo hace con su lenguaje específico: la narración (bastante sencilla), las imágenes (impresionantes) y la poesía (muy presente). Avatar impacta y llega al espectador especialmente a través de la vista y el oído, la sensibilidad y la emotividad. No es casualidad que empiece con un hombre real que abre los ojos y termine con un hombre nuevo que abre los ojos. El mensaje se nos entrega de forma intuitiva e inmediata, a través de los sentidos, pero esto no quiere decir que deja de lado la razón y la libertad del espectador. Este libro intenta profundizar un poco más, desde una perspectiva cristiana, en el contenido de Avatar que apunta a dos crisis actuales, una más visible: la crisis ecológico-energética y la actitud imperialista de Occidente, y otra más velada: la crisis de valores espirituales.

I have decided to publish this Book to assist other VETis teachers with their courses, to share what I have developed and to provide a resource for others to use in their own courses and schools.

The Country of the Pointed Firs

Sarah Orne Jewett

Genre: Classics

Price: $ 0.99

Publish Date: November 21, 2017

Publisher: Open Road Media

Seller: OpenRoad Integrated Media, LLC


A classic collection of American short stories about the lives of the late-nineteenth-century citizens of Maine.   Sarah Orne Jewett’s masterpiece, The Country of Pointed Firs is a short story sequence that celebrates what the author believed were the rapidly disappearing traditions, manners, and dialect of the natives of coastal Maine at the turn of the twentieth century. In revealing snapshots—a family reunion, the ghostly vision of a seaman, and more—Jewett presents honest portraits of individual New Englanders and a warm, humorous, and compassionate vision of the Northeast. Filled with an eclectic cast of characters, the collection humanizes northeasterners from all walks of life.   Like Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn , The Country of Pointed Firs masterfully illustrates the American character and experience. Although widely overlooked during her lifetime, Jewett’s tales—and the values they relate—are just as relevant today as when they were written.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.


It’s August in Alaska, and geology professor Jack Oswald prepares for the new school year. But when hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appear overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle, Jack receives an unexpected phone call. An oil company exec hires Jack to investigate, and he picks his climatologist wife and two of their graduate students as his team. Uncharacteristically, Jack also lets Aileen O’Shannon, a bewitchingly beautiful young photojournalist, talk him into coming along as their photographer. When they arrive in the remote oil town of Deadhorse, the exec and a biologist to protect them from wild animals complete the team. Their task: to assess the risk of more holes opening under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the wells and pipelines that feed it. But they discover a far worse danger lurks below. When it emerges, it threatens to shatter Jack’s unshakable faith in science. And destroy us all… Praise for Hell Holes “I couldn’t put this book down!

The fates of two ill-matched couples intertwine in this poignant masterpiece from one of England’s greatest novelists Eustacia Vye is as wild and beautiful as the landscape that surrounds her grandfather’s house on Egdon Heath.

But Clym’s interests run in the opposite direction—toward comfort, community, and tradition—and the young couple’s happy union soon turns miserable. When a former suitor pays a fateful visit, Eustacia must decide whether to break her vows to Clym or forego her exotic dreams forever.   One of Thomas Hardy’s most beloved novels, The Return of the Native brilliantly evokes the dangerous allure of romantic fantasies. Rich in mythological allusions yet grounded in the hard realities of nineteenth-century village life, it is one of the most heartbreaking tragedies ever told.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Book 2 of the multi-award-winning Historical Fiction series The Troubadours Quartet 'Wonderful. If you love historical romance and adventure, you must pick up this series!'  Autumn Birt,  Rise of the Fifth Order  1151: the Holy Land  Estela, the troubadour, is following the destiny of her beautiful voice. Dragonetz, her passionate knight, has a dangerous mission to fulfil; divided by the times they love in, they fight to be together.  Imprisoned in Damascus, Dragonetz suffers the mind games inflicted by his anonymous enemies, as he is forced to remember the traumatic events of the crusade, two years earlier. His military prowess is as valuable and dangerous to the balance of power as the priceless Torah he has to deliver to Jerusalem, and the key players want Dragonetz riding with them – or dead.  Instead of remaining safely at home, Estela is desperate to rescue Dragonetz at all costs. She sets out for the Holy Land, never realising that the person she thinks will be her knight's saviour might actually be his doom. Can Estela get him out alive, despite Nur-ad-Din, the Muslim Atabeg; Mélisende, the Queen of Jerusalem; and an avenger from the past? Will she still want to, when she knows what they've done to him? Once more 'the master of historical intrigue' whirls the reader off into medieval mayhem. Jean Gill's details of crusading strategy and riding a camel are as convincing as the pangs of medieval childbirth. She brought medieval France to life in 'Song at Dawn'; now she adds 12th century Damascus and Jerusalem with equal aplomb.

Given the opportunity to get back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn't been seen since.  After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher's hand and disfigured half of his face, he's lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy…that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress with a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feeling things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn't felt in years.  Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other's hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they'll have to decide if the love they found in one another's arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after.  ** Contemporary Romance.

Rescued from abandonment and raised by the wealthy and beautiful Iriyat ha-Varensi, Alizhan has grown up in isolation, using her gift to steal secrets from Iriyat's rivals, the ruling class of Laalvur. But Iriyat keeps secrets of her own. When Alizhan discovers that she isn't the only one of her kind, and that a deadly plot threatens everyone like her, there's only one person she can trust. Ev liked having a secret. None of the other girls in the village had a thief-friend. Evreyet Umarsad—"Ev" to her parents and her one friend—longs to be the kind of hero she reads about in books. But the rest of the world feels impossibly far away from her life on a farm outside Laalvur. Ev will never lay eyes on the underground city of Adappyr, the stars of the Nightward Coast, or the venomous medusas that glow in the dark depths of the sea. At least on her weekly trip to the market, Ev gets to see her thief—the strange young woman who slips by her cart and playfully steals a handful of thornfruit. When the thief needs help, Ev doesn't hesitate. Together, they uncover a conspiracy that draws them all over Laalvur and beyond. Thornfruit  is the first book in  The Gardener's Hand  trilogy.

For lovers of Jacqueline Carey, Brent Weeks and Storm Constantine – fantasy with mystery, romance and a paranormal twist. For Alloran, who practised the fine art of frivolity for decades, life just got serious. Framed for the heinous crime of demon summoning, he is forced to flee his comfortable life of silk sheets and nightly carousing in the wizard’s citadel for the stinking back-alleys of the city of Ehsan. There he poses as a common labourer to hide from his lover, his best friend and the wizarding authorities. But beneath the garbage of the backstreets he discovers a new horror: a trail of gruesome bodies, gnawed on by hellcats, and left gift-wrapped for him to find with taunting ‘love notes’ attached. Someone is brutally murdering people from Alloran’s past and threatening all those close to him. As the body count rises, Alloran must confront his personal demons and risk losing himself to a powerful addiction in order to expose the true villain. Failure means the destruction of the city at the hands of the deadliest demon to inhabit any of the seven hells – or worse, Alloran himself.  Also including bonus story 'A Magical Melody'. Who stole a lethal song of power from a locked and warded room, and why? The answers will change Avram's life forever. Praise for CONFRONTING THE DEMON “Ballintyne is a masterful storyteller who manages to get you caught up in the book almost instantaneously… I actually enjoyed a good fantasy novel that didn’t take days and days to read, but still offered the opportunity to get caught up in its world and story.” – Tracy Riva, Global eBook Awards Judge "This story wasn't quite what I expected; it was better! The first pages surprised me, reminding strongly of THE WAY OF SHADOWS by Brent Weeks (the scenes, setting and story feel). I was immediately drawn in." – Dr. S. Drecker “The power-packed action will leave you breathless and the eerie suspense will make you chomp on your own nails, beware!” – Satarupa, Curse of the Bibliphile “With imagination and detail that paints a full scene for the mind’s eye, Ciara takes us on a short but exciting journey into a world of magic, love and demons from hell.“ – Miranda Wood of DustyKatt’s Stuff Reviews "…classic epic fantasy elements that would make Robert E. Howard happy." – M Joseph Murphy "The pace is phenomenal not only because it is fast and keeps the plot moving forward but because there is such a wealth of information in so few words! I could've read more and more for hours and hours, but Ballintyne wraps it all up in one suspenseful, tidy package." – A_TiffyFit

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jamie Thornton comes a stunning survival series that has readers raving about its dark and gritty thrills. Powerful enemies, twisted memories, a government willing to do anything for control…. ONCE UPON A TIME A PLAGUE ENDED THE WORLD. "…This isn't the boxcar children covered with a veneer of wholesomeness. These street kids know how to survive on the streets, and it isn't always pretty… heart-stopping and horrific…."  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Where do I even start? I guess here: it's refreshing to finally read a disease-centre apocalyptic story that feels real… cannot wait to see what happens next…." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ If you like anything (or most things) with quickly-spreading viruses, zombies, realistic teenaged characters, learning how homeless kids get by on the street, action, and strong loyalty…an intriguing, cannot-put-it-down tale…." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "The first book left me hungry for the next one…" ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "This book was bad@sss…" ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ When a new virus unleashes violence that devastates eighteen-year-old Corrina's neighborhood, all Corrina can think about is surviving. But then the boy she loves is kidnapped by a group of government soldiers, she must team up with a strange group of street kids to save him. But will he still love her when he finds out what she's become? INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR Q – What makes the Feast of Weeds series special?  An epidemic ravaging the human population. A world spiraling into chaos. People doing whatever it takes to survive. I wanted to write something I would love to read. I've always been drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre and thought about end-of-the-world books I've loved–Stephen King's The Stand, Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower. But also recent stories like The Girl With All the Gifts, The Passage, and even Stranger Things. I've always found stories with big epidemics/events that reinvent the world so thrilling. I also love getting into some of the science, like the genetic engineering, that would make the situations plausible. Feast of Weeds gives you some of that classic Walking Dead zombie fare, but…without giving too much away…I guarantee you've never read a zombie series like Feast of Weeds before. My cast of characters are teenagers but I've had plenty of adults write me to say they've enjoyed the series. I think Feast of Weeds hits the sweet spot of older Young Adult that will appeal to plenty of adults too. No matter what your age, the Feast of Weeds series is designed to keep you furiously turning those pages. Q – What order should I read the books in?  I think the complete series would be most enjoyable in the following sequence: –Germination (prequel short novel) –Contamination –Infestation –Eradication Q – Why should readers give these books a try?  The prequel hit #5 on the New York Times and #8 on the USA Today bestseller lists. Readers have sent me tons of emails to say how much they love Feast of Weeds (stay-up-all-night-even-with-work-the-next-day love). But more than that, as a reader myself, I am always looking for the next Stranger Things, The Passage, The Girl With All The Gifts. THAT'S the kind of story I hope you'll find in Feast of Weeds. Smart. Dangerous. Gritty. With rip-your-heart-out intensity (literally and figuratively in some cases). Feast of Weeds is a fast, dark apocalyptic ride. Just remember…nothing is what it seems.

Check out this  FREE  one of a kind book and find out what Russell Simmons has to say about each artists, visual and recording!  See what visual artist Shepard Fairey has in common with Young Jeezy or Jay Z! See how we compare each album to its contemporaries and place them in their aesthetic order! If you ever wondered why or how Hip-hop is such a global phenomenon read these great essays written by top scholars like Imani Perry from Princeton university! For any music, visual art, or great literature enthusiast this book is for you! ‘The Art Album’ is an illustrated book celebrating the long-standing relationship between the visual arts and hip-hop music, and is the result of a collaboration between two giants of the American music scene.  Dawud Knuckles is a veteran of the record industry in America. In the 1990s, his friends founded the hip-hop record label Ruff Ryders, with whom he worked for many years as a videographer. He has subsequently worked with many recording artists on interviews, special projects, tours, and documentaries for Ruff Ryders. Through his career in the music industry, Dawud has made many influential contacts, including Russell and Danny Simmons, who is contributing to the book. The Simmons insightfully explores the themes of a selection of songs and how the subculture of hip-hop relates to, and has influenced contemporary art.  Each chapter of the book will have a theme. Lyrics from the song will be presented beside contemporary art inspired by that theme. Exclusive commentary from Russell and Danny Simmons (celebrated artist and philanthropist), and a contextualizing text from legendary writer and activist Nikki Giovanni, as well as other academics.  This concept of presenting songs, art, and interviews alongside each other will offer an incomparable insight into the influence that Hip-hop has on contemporary culture, and the unrivaled significance that this subculture has risen to. This collaboration between so many big names in music, art and academia is a unique project. Dawud made his way through the worlds of art, business, and ideas and found a highly impressive group to join him in bringing this project to fruition.The idea was of course brilliant, but his enthusiasm was also infectious. Soon he had Kehinde Wiley on board, a young African American painter who is an art world sensation, known for his intoxicat- ing blend of traditional portraiture done in French Rococco style, with emotionally compelling and gorgeous renderings of young black men, often attired in hip hop styles. Shepard Fairey was also enlisted,a graphic artist and illustrator perhaps best known for his iconic tricolor “HOPE” poster from President Obama’s 2008 campaign.The starkness and emotional power of his work resonates with the spare and provocative aesthet- ics of early hip hop. As well, this book features the work of Takashi Murakami, contemporary Japanese artist who bridges the street culture of graffiti tags with high culture (his designs have been featured on Louis Vuitton bags) and works in the super at Asian tradition out of which Manga and anime have developed. His work speaks to the definitive influence Asian popular cultures have had on hip hop.

Dragon mentors, magical creatures, and a young girl looking for adventure: Harry Potter meets Eragon. "A remarkable dragon story for YA and teens. If you enjoy the Eragon book series by Christopher Paolini, you love this series!!" ★★★★★ When the dragon Jaax receives word that a human infant has been found in the province of Oescienne, he doesn't dare believe it. Humans have been extinct for centuries, trapped by a terrible curse and left to live out their existence in the form of dragons. Despite his doubts, however, Jaax assumes responsibility for the baby girl only to discover that what he has been seeking for so many years has finally been found. Jahrra knows all about the legends and sagas of Oescienne, but never in her wildest dreams would she believe that she played a part in one of them. She is far too busy dodging the bullies at school and seeking out new adventures with her friends to worry about what secrets her dragon mentor might be keeping from her, or that her every move is being watched by something living in the forest surrounding her home. But the secrets run deep, and as Jahrra fights to earn her place in this extraordinary world, she will begin to unravel the truth of it all: that she isn't as safe as she thought she was, that danger lurks around every corner, and that her role in this unfurling tale is far more significant than she could possibly imagine.

The year is 2077 and the planet is reeling from centuries of human abuse. Worldwide, humans and a new race, genetically-evolved numans, compete for survival as water and food become increasingly scarce. Humans face the prospect of extinction at the hands of the numans who, like Homo sapiens when they pushed Neanderthals into extinction, have a small but decisive edge. Investigative author Jack Janis and his golden retriever Max find themselves at the center of world events after they fall for Alice Algafari, an alluring but enigmatic researcher, in their quiet rural village. Jack's hopes for an idyllic life with Alice and Max crash amid conspiracy and lethal risks when Alice's boss tries to ensnare them. Alice, Jack and Max are forced to run for their lives. Meanwhile, Mark Milner is squeezed out of his job at the Numan Broadcasting Corporation, once the British Broadcasting Corporation, and heads for a new life in FedOz as part of a numan government scheme to push humans into emigrating. The life he discovers is far from what he was promised. Alice's boss, a powerful genetics scientist, is caught in the jaws of numan rebellions, World Council politics and the Military High Command's ambition to let civil authorities fail and then take control. His most dangerous enemy, however, is in his own research center. A final showdown between compassion and science erupts in Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, with Max emerging as a key to shaping the future of the planet

The wife, a tall, aristocratic looking woman who, despite her advanced years, her snow-white hair, her eyes now red and swollen from weeping, and pallid face seamed with careworn lines from constant vigils, still showed traces of former beauty, scanned the physician fearfully, trying to read in the expression of his countenance what the friend and man of science, out of sheer compassion, was doing his utmost to conceal. He had just emerged from the sick chamber; the trained nurse, methodical and quick, and singularly attractive looking in her neat uniform, had closed the door noiselessly behind him. Two young girls, one about eighteen and the other some four years her junior, both possessing more than average good looks, stood timidly in the background anxiously awaiting, together with their grief-stricken mother, to hear the dreaded verdict. The physician paid no attention to them, but paced up and down the room, his manner stern and forbidding, his head inclined in deep thought, as if bent under the weight of tremendous responsibilities. A noted specialist in pulmonary troubles, Dr. Wilston Everett was well past middle age, and his tall, erect figure, massive frame and fine, leonine head, crowned by a mass of stubborn, iron-gray hair, made him a conspicuous figure everywhere. His expression, stern in repose, was that of a profound student; it was a face where lofty thoughts, humane feeling and every other noble attribute had left its indelible impress.

7 Mistakes Photographers Make

(And How To Avoid Them)

Graham Clark

Genre: Photography

Publish Date: August 1, 2014

Publisher: Breakthrough Photography

Seller: David Graham Clark


In this book you'll discover straightforward solutions to 7 of the most common technical roadblocks photographers experience. I’ve made all the photography mistakes there are to make, and more. Combine that with no formal training in photography and you could say I started out late to the race. It took me years of trial and error to discover real-world solutions to my technical roadblocks, but like learning the scales on the guitar is necessary before you can begin phrasing, once I did I was on my way to consistently getting better images. And by learning these simple solutions you can too. In this book you’re going to learn how to avoid common technical roadblocks, because I really believe that if you can move past the technical aspects of photography you can focus your precious time and energy on that which pays the highest dividends: seeing creatively and executing your vision onto film or pixels . Although I have no formal training in photography I did learn a great deal (and I believe you can, too) from at least two photographers who I’ll mention here: Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell. Sure, their photographic work is seminal, however they also left in their wake another legacy: their thoughts and writings on photography, which have influenced me and therefore what’s in this book directly. I have to give a huge thanks to all of the members of the photography community I began in San Francisco which now has over 1,000 members – Landscape Photography SF . Through this community I have shared and learned a great deal, and only through the process of constant feedback is this book even possible.

RIFT – The new dystopian trilogy book 1 from the author of the Exodus Trilogy. The RIFT Saga begins here. In the ruins of what was once North America lays the Covenant, a nation forged by the iron will of the Moon people, who descended from their dusty refuge on the Moon after the Fall. The Moon people are wealthy, ruled by a strong government who protects its citizens from the dangers from outside their borders. Their greatest achievement is having learned the secret of immortality, and every citizen has the opportunity to live nearly forever if they choose to, a life of riches and abundance. The English are the descendants of the original inhabitants of this place, and they live very different lives from that of the Moon people. They only live to serve the greater good, and citizenship is something few have the opportunity to earn. At the age of fifty all non-citizens are subjected to mandatory euthanasia. In order to maintain a sustainable society, they are told. Every year a number of girls and boys at the age of eighteen are selected for Service to the State. The brightest and most talented are sent to become Students. The strong, the fighters and the athletes become Janissaries, a band of soldiers protecting the northern border from the enemies of the Covenant. The Wardens, a secretive organization known to operate far to the west, near the Rift, which makes up the border to the wastelands, sometimes choses one or two initiates, but nobody knows what becomes of them. And then there is the Corpus, where the whip rules and backs are bent. Those who complete their Service, may become citizens. And although they will never be equal to the Moon people, they will have access to all the riches and opportunities granted by the Covenant leadership to its citizens. As Sue is nearing Selection Day, she secretly hopes to be chosen, despite having to leave her mother and brother behind. She doesn't crave glory or wealth though. A man or woman with citizen status can do a lot of good, and although few return to their home towns, Sue hopes to return to give her family a better life on the other side of Service. But the Covenant is rotten to the core, and as she begins to learn its secrets, Sue must question everything she has always taken for granted. Soon she will find herself in dire peril, for she has seen the truth and there will be no turning back after that… This science fiction dystopian is set more than two centuries after the events of Exodus, in a future dystopian society forged from the ashes of global disaster. "Mr. Christensen has absolutely found his genre, and I hope he keeps the stories coming!"

Mr. Gosse gives an account of the impression made by this poem upon men so diverse as the Rev. William Johnson Fox, John Stuart Mill, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, to all of whom, in spite of its crudities and very evident immaturity, it seemed a production of exceptional promise. After an interval of two years Browning published, this time under his own name, a second long poem. The subject, Paracelsus, had been suggested by the friend, Amédeé de Ripert-Monclar, to whom the poem is dedicated. In pursuance of his purposed rehabilitation of a vanished age Browning made extensive researches in the British Museum into the history of Paracelsus, the great leader in sixteenth century medical science; but in the poem the facts are subordinated to a minute analysis of the spiritual history of Paracelsus. The poem was too abstruse in subject and style to bring Browning popularity, but his genius was recognized by important critics.

After one carnal night together, Rook uses Fin to escape her toxic relationship. But the problem with a romance foretold by fate is that it comes with strings attached. Unbeknownst to Rook, the jewelry she installs in her customers — including Fin — contains black-ops nanotech that makes its wearer vulnerable not only to spying, but to mind control, and worse. The jewelry’s tech has drawn the attention of guerrilla televangelist Brian Shaw, who is bent on leveraging the transceivers to impose his dogma upon the masses. During a telepathic interrogation, the reverend unleashes Fin’s latent mental powers and triggers a meltdown that leaves Fin catatonic. Rook rebuilds him from the inside, cementing their bond. While Rook tackles the question of why Shaw’s heretical prophecies seem to feature Fin and herself, Fin struggles to halt the invasion of a proselytizing alien collective who utilize the tech-tainted jewelry in their attempts to spread their monstrous beliefs. Could it be that Fin truly is the Divided Man of Shaw’s prophecy, and Rook his Completer? The couple’s gritty, darkly humorous adventure leads them from meeting in a tattoo parlor to escaping a mercenary-infested factory; from hiding in an abandoned bomb-shelter to Rook’s imprisonment in a religious broadcasting empire’s luxurious penthouse; from the bizarre, dream-logic landscapes of the characters’ minds to the cavernous interior of the asteroid Gaspra. Ultimately, all Fin and Rook must do to save the world is stay together. Can they? Interview with the author: Q: Describe the world where this story takes place. A: From the outside, Webster appears to be a typical northeastern college town, but under the surface things are dangerously askew. It’s consensus reality with an insidious twist. a reality that we sideswiped a couple of decades ago that’s still wobbling in its orbit. Q: Describe your style of science fiction. A: It’s intensely character driven, especially the characters’ flaws. It has complex plots. But the most important thing that all of it has in common is that there’s a dangerous secret, a Big Idea, embedded in what appears to be the normal world. Q: Miss Brandymoon’s Device is a novel that isn’t entirely comfortable being categorized as science fiction. But if you agree not to call it that, it insists that it has all the extraterrestrials, nanotechnology, and telepathic powers anyone could want. A: That’s not a question. But, yeah. It’s fun to read novels that cross genres and defy categorization. And when you can’t find enough of them, sometimes you have to write your own. Q: Is that why you write? A: Writing’s a thrill! Putting pictures in someone else’s head, stirring the feelings of another person, that’s magic. Writing offers a chance to get to know interesting people; you just have to make them up first. In fact, it lets you be those other people, and go with them to impossible places. And then it lets readers have that experience, too. Q: Is this novel part of a series? A: Miss Brandymoon’s Device is the first novel in the Divided Man Series, which currently feels complete at three novels. But never say never: it could someday inspire further writing. Q: When will the sequel be available? A: March 2017. Sooner if the stars align.

When life went smoothly, the Israelites forgot God's laws again.  God did not bless them as in the past.  He put them into the hands of the Midianites.  The Midianites united with other tribes to take away the Israelites' crops, grapes, olives and their livestock.  The Israelites had to hide themselves in the caves or on mountain tops.  When they returned to their homes, all the crops and livestock were gone.  Nothing was left for them to live on through the winter.  It kept happening this way for seven years.  When harvest time came, the Midianites came.  The Israelites felt so terrible.  They prayed to God for his help.  A young man, Gideon, belonged to the tribe of Joash.  Like other Israelites, he was afraid of the Midianites.  He found a way to save some of his harvest.  One day when he was processing his wheat in a cave, he looked up and saw a stranger in front of him.  Who was that stranger? What did he say to Gideon?  Gideon did not believe in the stranger, so he asked for proof.  Gideon asked God to give him a sign.  What did he asked? Did God give him the sign?  The people that lived where Gideon lived still followed Canaan's religion and worshiped Baal.  How did Gideon changed their belief and rebuilt the faith in God?  With only three hundred men, can  Gideon defeated the Midianites? Will the Israelites again believed in God?  To find out all the answers, please read the full story: The Story of Gideon.
