Description : Leave Before You Go is about Daniel, who escapes the grind of his London life to find himself alone, penniless and paranoid on the other side of the world. And it is about Kate, who lives in Auckland, where she works as an usherette. It is a merciless and witty examination of a generation cut adrift: what do people do when they don't know what they want to do? 'Perkins captures brilliantly the often brutal vicissitudes of modern love - the agonies of flirting, flings, betrayal, sex . . . a gifted writer, with an idiosyncratic, clear-eyed take on life' Harpers & Queen 'Remarkable how accomplished some first novels can be. Perkins' debut demonstrates the same light touch that made her short-story collection a winner. Her characters fall in and out of love and work; occasionally, they wonder what life is all about. They are entirely credible' Independent

Description : “Hats off to that brave soul daring to write what might be called speculative literary fiction, and willing to venture answers to questions beyond even those of life & death. Tommy Butler’s debut novel Before You Go has a big beating heart and a mind all its own.” — Joshua Ferris, author of The Dinner Party and Then We Came to the End A big, rich, life-affirming debut that explores the most perplexing questions of existence: purpose, the pain of loneliness, the desire for happiness, and the price we pay as we search for fulfillment. In the Before, humankind is created with a hole in its heart, the designers not realizing their mistake—if it was a mistake—until too late. Elliot Chance is just a boy, and knows nothing of this. All he knows is that he doesn’t feel at home in this world, and his desire for escape becomes more urgent as he grows into adulthood, where the turbulence of life seems to offer no cure for the emptiness. Desperate and lost, he stumbles upon a support group on the edge of Manhattan. There he meets two other drifting souls—Sasha, a young woman who leaves coded messages in the copy she writes for advertising campaigns, and Bannor, whose detailed depictions of the future make Elliot think he may have actually been there. With these two unlikely allies, Elliot launches into the business of life, determined to be happy in spite of himself. Yet the hole in the heart is not so easily filled. Profound yet playful, Before You Go is a beautiful, imaginative journey into the ache and wonder of being human, and the quest for a meaningful life.

Description : The summer before his senior year, Jude (yes, he's named after the Beatles song) gets his first job, falls in love for the first time, and starts to break away from his parents. Jude's house is kept dark, and no one talks much—it's been that way since his little sister drowned in a swimming pool seven years ago when Jude was supposed to be watching her. Now, Jude is finally, finally starting to live. Really live. And then, life spins out of control. Again. Acclaimed author James Preller explores life, death, love, faith, and resilience in his first young adult novel that will grip readers from the book's dramatic first few pages to its emotional end.

Description : How does it happen that two people can be experiencing the same circumstances and conditions on their mission trip, and one person is having a great time, while the other is miserable as can be? And how can one short term mission team prepare so diligently for the practical ministry they'll be doing and be so ineffective as a group, while another team that seems less polished or skilled makes a huge mark in the culture they visit? Could it be that the heart preparation is more important than it is given credit for? In "Before You Go," experienced short term mission leader and trainer Jack Hempfling takes you on a 40 day journey that will bring you face to face with attitudes and issues that if not addressed, can make you or your group ineffective on the field. Get the most for your short term mission effort, finances, and preparation by getting your hearts ready. Walk with the Lord through this devotional and be equipped, informed, and made ready to joyfully pierce the darkness with all that you do. "I wish someone had given me a copy of Jack's book when I was first starting out" - Peter Warren, Director, Youth With a Mission, Denver "Wonderfully done ... I would highly recommend that every missionary candidate prayerfully use this devotional tool, and by so doing, avoid many difficulties, and increase their fruitfulness" - Tom Brazell, International Ministries Director, Elim Fellowship "Each day the devotionals keep getting better" - Don Richter, Director, Harvest Preparation International Ministries "I will require every future team member to purchase and read "Before You GO," before we go " - Pastor Carol Missik, Living Word Church and Operation Capital City

Description : After the loss of his wife in a tragic accident, beloved artist Danny Gregory chronicled his grief in the medium he knows best—the pages of his illustrated journals. This intimate reproduction of his journal is a stirring visual memoir of Gregory's journey towards recovery. Uniquely sincere, and by turns tender, raw, and hopeful, Gregory's idiosyncratic text and illustrations capture the darkest and lightest moments of his "year of magical drawing." Gregory's process reminds us that creative expression offers its own therapy, and that living each day to its fullest may be as simple as putting pen to paper. Anyone who has experienced loss will take solace in this refreshingly candid look at grieving, while art lovers will marvel at the artist's beautiful celebration of the power of creation.

Description : The first practical guide of its kind that helps students transition smoothly from high school to college The transition from high school—and home—to college can be stressful. Students and parents often arrive on campus unprepared for what college is really like. Academic standards and expectations are different from high school; families aren’t present to serve as “scaffolding” for students; and first-years have to do what they call “adulting.” Nothing in the college admissions process prepares students for these new realities. As a result, first-year college students report higher stress, more mental health issues, and lower completion rates than in the past. In fact, up to one third of first-year college students will not return for their second year—and colleges are reporting an increase in underprepared first-year students. How to College is here to help. Professors Andrea Malkin Brenner and Lara Schwartz guide first-year students and their families through the transition process, during the summer after high school graduation and throughout the school year, preparing students to succeed and thrive as they transition and adapt to college. The book draws on the authors’ experience teaching, writing curricula, and designing programs for thousands of first-year college students over decades.

Couples will be much more confident about whether or not to pursue marriage after completing these in-depth and personal questions.

Description : Dr. Charles Cassidy, once a bright student with a promising career in medicine, experienced a loss that would forever change his life. He diverted his brilliant mind from practicing medicine to research where he would develop Carcinatrope, a drug thought to be a cure for cancer – it was not. Though highly controversial, it would still change medicine and the lives of the terminally ill, forever. Ethan Pridgen, fiancé and father of two, would need this help to fulfill his dying wish. Before I Go is a powerful look at terminal illness and euthanasia. It raises the question of not only how we live, but also as a society how we die. I have poured all of my heart and soul into this novel. My hopes are that those who read and enjoy this book will recommend it to everyone they know. I hope you continue to read my work as it is published and am excited about the release of my next publication, The Eunuch, that will be coming toward the end of 2013. I look forward to having you follow me on twitter @ Perrytales1 and on my website at www.perrytales1.com as this novel continues to grow. Thank you for allowing me to share this part of me with you. I hope you enjoy the ride.
