A Hot Zombie Mess Book Excerpt:

Mori didn't want a dead-end office job. He wanted to make it big as a musician, but with his current goth rock band, Tears of Sorrow, he is lucky to get paying gigs. In the latest attempt to pull his band out of obscurity, or at least get a paycheck, Mori books a show in the backwater town of Merdeaux, Louisiana. At first it seems like a typical show, but when zombies attack the band is forced to confront the undead threat. Mori grudgingly leads his bandmates to safety above a local strip club along with a few of the town's survivors. He comically finds himself in over his head dealing with scheming locals, his ex-girlfriend and current guitarist, Raven, a plethora of sexual innuendo, and the ever-present walking dead. Mori and Tears of Sorrow will have to learn that the living dead aren't their only enemy if they hope to survive the night.

Parenting 101 Book Excerpt:

Parenting 101 is an alphabetically indexed collection of topics on the subject of raising children. The author covers a range of subjects of interest to parents of children of all ages. In a conversational tone infused with illustrative personal anecdotes, she discusses problem areas, metes out some helpful advice, and shares some of her personal thoughts on various parenting practices and trends. Some of the subjects she covers are how to put an end to whining, teaching kids about money and finances, best discipline practices, and even advice on transitioning into parenting adult children. Although there are some words of warning, primarily the book is positive and upbeat as it steers the reader through and around common pitfalls in childrearing and gives encouragement along the way. The reader will not only enjoy, but will also relate to the humorous and sometimes slightly self-effacing stories the author shares. Much of the material will seem like common sense that bears repeating, and some of it may be some new food for thought for the parent who is searching for answers. The book is designed to help parents maneuver through the parenting process without losing their minds, but the primary goal is to help them raise happy, well-adjusted children to become successful, responsible, and mature adults. Happy reading! About the Expert Melanie Miller is a high school English teacher and the mother of 3 adult children.

If you would like to hear how she did that, then this book is for you. Melanie’s other interests are reading, free lance writing, trying out new restaurants, and lounging around with her three dogs and cat with which she has filled her nest so it doesn’t feel quite so empty.

The Only Way Was Essex Book Excerpt:

In a remote corner of rural Essex, when ploughs were drawn by heavy horses and children walked shoeless to school, young Spike Mays lived with his family in a two-up, two-down cottage, where there was no electricity, no bathroom, no running water and just a shared privy in the back yard. Beset by poverty, this was an England in the shadow of the Great War. In this bittersweet memoir Mays recreates the village, its travelling parson, local poacher and even the local drunkard. And in the bustling backstairs world of the squire's house where Spike served his apprenticeship we see a more privileged side to life. This warm and nostalgic portrait of a very different Essex opens a door to a distant past.

Plain Tales From The Raj Book Excerpt:

The Raj was, for two hundred years, the jewel in the British imperial crown. Although founded on military expansionism and undoubted exploitation, it developed over the centuries into what has been called 'benign autocracy' - the government of many by few, with the active collaboration of most Indians in recognition of a desire for the advancement of their country. Charles Allen's classic oral history of the period that marked the end of British rule was first published a generation ago. Now reissued as the imperial century closes, this brilliantly insightful and bestselling collection of reminiscences illustrates the unique experience of British India: the sadness and luxury for some; the joy and deprivation for others.

The Midnight Rider in the Hot Rod Lincoln and Other True and Edifying Tales of Startling Shocking Action Packed Spine Tingling Supernatural Adventures and Stuff Book Excerpt:

The stories in this book are real-life, supernatural experiences in the life of one man. Some of the subjects brought up in relation to those events are sure to be provocative and maybe even to some controversial, but Sonny has taken care to back up from the Bible what he has written, to show that God can do whatever He chooses. The Lord spoke audibly to Sonny in 1974 while he was in jail and not interested in anything spiritual. Sonny had chosen crime as a lifetime career choice, but after literally seeing the light and being body slammed in that jail cell, his life has drastically changed, and the things that have happened in his life since then, to say the least, are very unusual and noteworthy. Although a lot is given to action, thrills and chills, deep and unheard-of subjects are brought to light and examined in detail in the light of the Word of God. Readers can expect inspiration, encouragement, and instruction with adventure, mystery, suspense, and thrills with a few chills.

Red Hot and Holy Book Excerpt:

When one person dares to speak her truth, it challenges us all to live our own. With Red Hot and Holy, Sera Beak offers a provocative and intimate view of what it means to get up close and personal with the divine in modern times. With a rare combination of audacious wit, scholarly acumen, and tender vulnerability—vibrantly mixed with red wine, rock songs, tattoos, and erotic encounters—Sera candidly chronicles the highs and lows of her mystical journey. From the innocence of her childhood crush on God; through a whirlwind of torrid liaisons and bitter break-ups with Christianity, Buddhism, Sufism, Hinduism, and the New Age; and finally into committed monogamy with her own Red Hot and Holy Goddess, Sera shares transformative insights, encouraging us all to trust our unique path and ignite our own spiritual love affair. Sera Beak's luscious writing and renegade spiritual wisdom that slices through religious and new age dogma made her debut book The Red Book a breakout success. With Red Hot and Holy she offers a far more personal book—an illuminating, hilarious, and above all utterly honest portrait of the heart-opening process of mystical realization. This hot and holy book invites you to embrace your soul, unleash your true Self, and burn, baby, burn with divine love. Excerpt As a child, I was madly in love with God. Gaga for God. In grade school, I used to write “I (heart) God” at the top of all my homework assignments and in the margins of the notes I passed to my girlfriends about which boys we thought were cute. Next to The Little Princess, a children’s bible was kept on my bedside table for nightly reading. Miracles? Prophetic dreams? Angels? Healing the sick? Sign me up for those gigs! And every Thursday I believed J.C. dropped by my bedroom so I could ask him personal questions and tell him which sister was annoying me the most. I was magnetized to rosaries, prayers, and pyramids the way other kids were to doughnuts, MTV and the Cabbage Patch Kids, and every time I saw a religious figure (priest, nun, Buddhist monk, Hare Krishna) out in public, it would take an enormous amount of willpower not to stalk them. When Career Days at school would come around, my questionnaire would look a little something like this: Favorite subject? God Favorite hobby? God What do you want to be when you grow up? God (Okay, there was a brief time when I was six years old when the answer to that last question was “an albino.” I thought albinism would make me glow in the dark.) When I was a child, God was not a belief of a magical Santa Claus type. He was as real as my heart. I felt Him (inside me). I recognized Him (everywhere). I knew Him (personally). We hung out together, and I never wanted our rendezvous to stop. I only wanted us to draw closer. I assumed I was experiencing what many Catholics refer to as “the call” to be a priest, so I matter-of-factly informed my parish priests and Sunday school teachers of my future vocation. They laughed, patted my head, and told me I couldn’t have heard the call to be a priest because I had a vagina. Okay, they didn’t say that last part, but believe me, it was implied. They did tell me that only men were allowed to be priests because Jesus only had male disciples (to which Mary Magdalene juts out her left hip and slaps her round cheek with The Gospel of Mary Magdalene). But, of course, I could always be a nun.
