Book excerpt: 'Like Salvador Dali's confessions, only far funnier and more self-deprecating, Dandy in the Underworld entertains as much as it revolts, is as tender as it is shocking, and as genuine as it is false.' Independent Sure to shock and surprise, Sebastian Horsley recounts his life story with excruciating self-knowledge and a savage wit. 'One of the funniest, strangest and most revolting memoirs ever written.' Sunday Times Growing up at High Hall, in Hull, with his alcoholic mother, who regularly attempted suicide, his stepfather, a cult member dressed in orange, and his father, a crippled millionaire, Sebastian Horsley couldn't wait to leave home. Searching for happiness, meaning and a good outfit he embarked on a doomed career as a punk guitarist, had a stormy relationship with a notorious Scottish gangster, enjoyed a wildly successful period as a stock-market entrepeneur and experienced a near fatal stint as a shark-hunter. Sebastian charts his years as a dandy, an artist, a male escort and a brothel connoisseur. There are the love affairs, with Rachel 1 and Rachel 2, and a harrowing descent into heroin and crack addiction. Dandy in the Underworld evokes his desperate attempts to get clean, culminating in his crucifixion in the Philippines.

Book excerpt: “When you grow up living with domestic violence, witnessing those you love tear each other down with physical and verbal blows, your brain doesn’t know how to deal with that.” --from the foreword by Tony Robbins According to UNICEF, growing up with domestic violence is one of the most pervasive human rights violations in the world, affecting more than a billion people. Yet too few people are aware of the profound impact it can have. Invincible seeks to change this lack of awareness and understanding with a compelling look at this important issue, informing and inspiring anyone who grew up living with domestic violence—and those who love them, work with them, teach them, and mentor them. Through powerful first-person stories, including the author’s own experiences, as well as insightful commentary based on the most recent social science and psychology research, Invincible not only offers a deeper understanding of the concerns and challenges of those who grew up with domestic violence, but also provides proven strategies everyone can use to reclaim their lives and futures.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "I found myself asking as a child and as a grownup, What is happiness? I did not know that there could be so much sadness and unhappiness in anyones life. So many times I would ask myself, is this a dream? Does a father suppose to treat his family like this? Money was not a problem. We, as an African American family was not lacking in this capacity not at all. We went to church every Sunday, but were cursed out before we went, by daddy, who would hit the top of the bedroom doors as hard as he could with his fist, and say, get your black asses up. He was a so-called diligent church worker. We were an upper middle-class family that lived in this big house. We live better than most of or the average Caucasian family. We had cattle, horses, chickens, goats, lambs, pigs, and cotton fields, and property. He was the general labor foreman over the rest of the foremen, at a giant petrochemical company as a contractor as far as I remember. This was in the late 1950s through about the mid or late 1970s. Why was my, my sisters, my brother, and mothers lives so miserable and horrible? We also had cars, trucks, and some money. What was or went wrong? My father was not a drunk, not on narcotics, and not a gambler. I invite you to read this story and you may see why there was so much Pain and still so much pain. The pain was through almost my entire life."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After thirty years of being in an unhealthy relationship and marriage, Ruth Gold decided that she had had enough. She went through many years of ups and downs with her husband regarding hope, love, religious beliefs, and having children. Despite all the challenges she endured, she stayed in the marriage until she gained the strength to pick herself up and leave. Ruth Gold hopes that by sharing her testimony, she will encourage women of all ages who are dealing with the same kinds of problems to be able to seek a relationship with God, who will lead and direct them in living a happier and healthier life. In Finding Me in the Midst of It All, Ruth Gold discusses about choosing the wrong mate, settling for a relationship despite what you know or find out, surviving adulterous affairs and children born from those affairs, breaking the cycle of repeated affairs, feeling as if you are trapped with no way out, and most of all, establishing a relationship with God and following his voice instead of a man’s.

Book excerpt: Edward Lazellari brings you The Lost Prince, and the race to find the missing prince is on . . . In Lazellari's debut fantasy, Awakenings, New York City cop Cal MacDonnell and photographer Seth Raincrest found themselves stalked by otherworldly beings intent on killing them. The two had to accept the aid of a mysterious woman to unlock their hidden pasts, and what they discovered changed their lives. Everything they knew about their lives was an illusion. They had in fact travelled to our dimension from the medieval reality of Aandor to hide their infant prince from assassins, but upon arriving, a freak mishap wiped their memories. Cal, Seth, and the rest of their party were incapacitated, and the infant prince was lost. Thirteen years later, that prince, Daniel Hauer, is unaware of his origins--or that he has become the prize in a race between two powerful opposing factions. Cal and Seth's group want to keep Daniel safe. The other wants Daniel dead—by any means necessary. From the streets of New York City to the back roads of rural North Carolina, the search for the prince sets powerful forces against each other in a do-or-die battle for the rule of the kingdom of Aandor. Against a backdrop of murder, magic, and mayhem on the streets of New York City, victory goes to the swiftest and the truest of hearts. "Combines crossover fantasy in the style of Charles de Lint and Mercedes Lackey with urban fantasy reminiscent of Jim Butcher in a hard knocks action tale."—Library Journal on Awakenings At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

At least the robot, Asa, will be honest and easy to control. But as Anders gets to know Asa, he realizes that she’s far more sophisticated — and unpredictable — than advertised. Can he trust a robot whose motives he can’t comprehend to care for the person he loves most?

Therefore, it was a huge shock when she was arrested and charged with the murder of her own sister – who was later revealed to be her daughter. While unveiling the mystery behind the murder, several facts about Rasika were unearthed – how she was raped by her stepfather, how she sustained several lovers through her life, the reasons behind the many marriages she entered into, and the truth behind her two children whom she had claimed were her siblings.

Lana Lee runs her family’s Chinese restaurant in Cleveland’s Asia Village like nobody’s business. When it comes to actual cooking, however, she’s known to be about a step up from boiling rice. So Lana decides to go to culinary school on the sly—and prove that she has what it takes in the kitchen after all. But when course instructor Margo Chan turns up dead after class, Lana suddenly finds herself on the case, frying pan in hand. Since she was the one who discovered the body, Lana must do double duty in finding the killer and clearing her name. Now, with or without the help of her boyfriend Detective Adam Trudeau, Lana launches her own investigation into Margo’s life and mysterious death. Doing so leads her on a wild goose chase to and from the culinary school—and all the way back to the Ho-Lee noodle shop, where the guilty party may be closer than Lana thinks.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the bestselling tradition of How to Talk So Kids Will Listen, here is the first book that answers the questions "Why do my kids push my buttons?" and "How can I stop it from happening?" It's a given-kids push their parents buttons like nobody else can. Too many parents can be provoked to react with harmful anger, and children learn to manipulate their parents' emotions repeatedly, resulting in unhealthy life-long patterns. WHEN YOUR KIDS PUSH YOUR BUTTONS shows parents that it is their ideas and perceptions that push their own buttons and provoke the "road rage of parenting." When parents take responsibility for their reactions and listen to what their child's behavior is telling them, the child becomes the teacher to the parent. Filled with anecdotes from real families, this book is quickly joining the list of parenting classics.
