The 2 Richards Book Excerpt:

Christmas Eve a time of wonder. The tangerine and ginger air of New York, the bright lights of a busy city, and a belief that something wonderful was going to happen to you for certain. That’s the way it was for Amy. The beautiful, successful, 32-year-old Amy had achieved a lot, but she was still looking for the most important thing – her man. In the space of six months her life has gone through a one-hundred-and eighty-degree transformation: a move from New York to Los Angeles, a new environment, and a new woman – Amy. Everybody comes into our lives for a reason. Do you believe that? Amy believes it, and what happens to her defies any logic. The irony in her life: is the two Richards. Completely different, and yet similar at the same time. And when happiness is so close, everything could crumble in a moment. The novel follows the life of this strong woman over the course of six months, who was able to open a business following her divorce, and become a different woman, a better person than she was the day before.

Precarious Today Book Excerpt:

You are not need to leave your worries and insecurities since they do not exist. You continue to subconsciously create them. They don't actually exist unless you make them. The underlying reason that fear has evolved in you is that, in this enormous existence of which you have no knowledge of the beginning or end, you are only a small human being. Because you are such a small being, you are naturally afraid and insecure about what will happen to you. Fear and insecurities are just the result of an overactive and uncontrollable mind. “Precarious Today” consists of several co-authors from all over the globe who have dedicated their inked verses as a poem, quote, micro tale or a short story which revolves around the open theme. We are hoping for the great success of this book, a free anthology launched by The Little Booktique Hub Publication in which none of the co-authors are charged a single penny throughout the publishing process.

My True Life in Short Stories Book Excerpt:

From a very humble beginning filled with hardships, the sixth child in a family of fourteen, I was born on a small impoverished farm on the Gaspé Peninsula, in Quebec, Canada, just a tiny dot on the map as I say, and had a very unusual and fulfilled life. Living in ten major Canadian and us cities, always accidentally, I met unforgettable people such as a Roman Catholic Cardinal, Representatives of Governments in Canada, the Governor of Florida, as well as meeting internationally known singers such as Elvis Presley and Julio Iglesias, a WWII naval officer, hockey players, wrestlers and many more prominent people. I lived through illnesses, three earthquakes, car accidents, robberies at gun point and knife point, the Italian and Cuban exoduses and through the 9/11 collapse of the Twin Towers by the terrorists, in ny. In my youth I even realized my dream of skydiving. I dedicate this book to Dr. Maria Pedro for saving my life in 2013, without whom there would not be a book to leave as my legacy to future generations, and to my dear sister, Françoise, who is always there for me.

Nowhere Girl Book Excerpt:

By the age of nine, I will have lived in more than a dozen countries, on five continents, under six assumed identities. I’ll know how a document is forged, how to withstand an interrogation, and most important, how to disappear . . . To the young Cheryl Diamond, life felt like one big adventure, whether she was hurtling down the Himalayas in a rickety car or mingling with underworld fixers. Her family appeared to be an unbreakable gang of five. One day they were in Australia, the next in South Africa, the pattern repeating as they crossed continents, changed identities, and erased their pasts. What Diamond didn’t yet know was that she was born into a family of outlaws fleeing from the highest international law enforcement agencies, a family with secrets that would eventually catch up to all of them. By the time she was in her teens, Diamond had lived dozens of lives and lies, but as she grew older, love and trust turned to fear and violence, and her family—the only people she had in the world—began to unravel. She started to realize that her life itself might be a big con, and the people she loved, the most dangerous of all. With no way out and her identity burned so often that she had no proof she even existed, all that was left was a girl from nowhere. Surviving would require her to escape, and to do so Diamond would have to unlearn all the rules she grew up with. Wild, heartbreaking, and often unexpectedly funny, Nowhere Girl is an impossible-to-believe true story of self-discovery and triumph.

In his letter, Claude Freedman exposes the truth about her engagement gift passed down through the ages, and a memoir written by her 4th great-grandfather and nobleman, Capt. Françoise J. Reiss III: A man with a nefarious past who lived during the colonial slave trade. When Juliette confronts her mother with Claude’s letter, Adrian insists the Freedman’s are ‘impostors’ and Children of the Alliance, the memoir “the captain” wrote, is a ‘literary forgery.’ Defying her mother’s wish to forget about their family’s notorious past, Juliette sojourns to St. Augustine, Florida, to meet Mr. Freedman, and to pick up “the captain’s” memoir. However, while visiting the “Land of Flowers,” Juliette fears the Freedman descendants from “the captain’s” second marriage might be the rightful owners of her dowry. Realizing the truth may not always mend broken hearts, but will turn heads, Juliette returns to Paris, France, where she hires a team of forensic scientists to investigate her heirloom dowry: The decoratively carved ebony chest of rare gemstones. Shocked by the team’s discovery and with INTERPOL on her tail, Juliette calls upon her trusted friends to help her until she can clear her family name…

A Flawless Mistake Book Excerpt:

We all make mistakes―some small and insignificant and others mortifying, self-destructive, and life-altering. But we don’t have to let those mistakes define us. We don’t have to settle into the pits we inadvertently dig for ourselves. We don’t need to keep repeating patterns that inevitably lead us down the same paths over and over. A Flawless Mistake is a candid, hilarious and heartbreaking look into one woman’s extraordinary life, and the patterns and mistakes that could have destroyed her, but instead―eventually―led to her discovering self-love, self-awareness, and self-acceptance, as well as the ability to forgive herself and grow into someone living each day in gratitude and joy. Her journey will not only help you feel better about your own mistakes but empower you to let go of the various hurts you have felt in your life―and those you have inflicted on others―so that you can learn to make better choices in the future. It illustrates that, while doing better isn’t always easy, you are never truly alone in those trenches. You are perfectly imperfect, just like the rest of us, and all we can do is try to learn from the past and do our best moving forward … together.

Her real life consists of her absentee parents, who care more about the image of their family than the family itself, and her friends, who care more about the popular girl they want her to be. Rebelling against this life takes her further away from the life she has always known, as well as her family and friends, but it also brings her closer to friendships, acceptance and love. Happy Unhappy Ending is the tale of two worlds clashing together in a dangerous encounter that threatens to destroy everything in its wake, as they risk friendships, family, love, and even their lives.

Bed of Black Flowers Diary of an Unwelcomed Child Book Excerpt:

Against the back drop of a housing estate on the outskirts of London from the mid 1950s; SHIRLEY tells her story of abuse and the repercussions and affects on mental health, trust and relationships. Shirley is born at the end of world war two, to a mother who thought her child-bearing years were over and having failed to abort Shirley, greets her arrival with resentment and rejection, which continues throughout Shirley's childhood. We meet Shirley aged nine, already self-harming; an anxious, isolated child, eager to please and desperate for affection and as such becomes the perfect victim for abusers of all kinds. Shirley’s story of her journey into adulthood is harrowing in parts, though one of courage and self-discovery; she tells it with humour and candour.
