The Guest Cottage Book Excerpt:

New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer whisks readers back to the beloved island of Nantucket in this delightful novel about two single parents who accidentally rent the same summer house—and must soon decide where their hearts truly lie. Sensible thirty-six-year-old Sophie Anderson has always known what to do. She knows her role in life: supportive wife of a successful architect and calm, capable mother of two. But on a warm summer night, as the house grows quiet around her and her children fall asleep, she wonders what’s missing from her life. When her husband echoes that lonely question, announcing that he’s leaving her for another woman, Sophie realizes she has no idea what’s next. Impulsively renting a guest cottage on Nantucket from her friend Susie Swenson, Sophie rounds up her kids, Jonah and Lacey, and leaves Boston for a quiet family vacation, minus one. Also minus one is Trevor Black, a software entrepreneur who has recently lost his wife. Trevor is the last person to imagine himself, age thirty and on his own, raising a little boy like Leo—smart and sweet, but grappling constantly with his mother’s death, growing more and more closed off. Hoping a quiet summer on the Nantucket coast will help him reconnect with Leo, Trevor rents a guest house on the beautiful island from his friend Ivan Swenson. Best-laid plans run awry when Sophie and Trevor realize they’ve mistakenly rented the same house. Still, determined to make this a summer their kids will always remember, the two agree to share the Swensons’ Nantucket house. But as the summer unfolds and the families grow close, Sophie and Trevor must ask themselves if the guest cottage is all they want to share. Inspiring and true to life, The Guest Cottage is Nancy Thayer at her finest, inscribing in graceful, knowing prose matters of the heart and the meaning of family. Praise for The Guest Cottage “[The Guest Cottage] will make readers want to hop on the next ferry to seek out their own dreams and romance.”—Laurie Higgins, Cape Cod Times “[A] delightful beach read.”—InStyle Praise for Nancy Thayer Nantucket Sisters “Thayer obviously knows her Nantucket, and the strong sense of place makes this the perfect escapist book for the summer, particularly for fans of Elin Hilderbrand.”—Booklist “Thayer keeps readers on the edge of their seats with her dramatic story spanning the girls’ childhood to adulthood. This wonderful beach read packs a punch.”—Library Journal Island Girls “[A] book to be savored and passed on to the good women in your life.”—Susan Wiggs “Full of emotion and just plain fun, this novel is delightful.”—Romance Reviews Today Summer Breeze “Nancy Thayer is the queen of beach books. . . . All [these characters] are involved in life-changing choices, with all the heart-wrenching decisions such moments demand.”—The Star-Ledger “An entertaining and lively read that is perfect for summer reading indulgence.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News

Marilyn Monroe Book Excerpt:

It is one of the greatest mysteries of the twentieth century. How did Marilyn Monroe die? Although no pills were found in her stomach during the autopsy, it was still documented in the Los Angeles coroner's report that she had swallowed sixty-four sleeping pills prior to her demise. In Marilyn Monroe: A Case for Murder, biographer Jay Margolis presents the most thorough investigation of Marilyn Monroe's death to date and shares how he reached the definitive conclusion that she was murdered. Margolis meticulously dissects the events leading up to her death, revealing a major conspiracy and countless lies. In an exclusive interview with actress Jane Russell three months before her death, he reveals Russell's belief that Monroe was murdered and points the finger at the man she held responsible. While examining the actions of Peter Lawford, Bobby Kennedy, and Monroe's psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson, Margolis establishes a timeline of her last day alive that leads to shocking revelations. In August 1962, Marilyn Monroe's lifeless body was found on her bed, leaving all to wonder what really happened to the beautiful young starlet. Marilyn Monroe: A Case for Murder provides a fascinating examination of one of the most puzzling deaths of all time.

Technical Drawing 101 with AutoCAD 2015 Book Excerpt:

Technical Drawing 101 covers topics ranging from the most basic, such as making freehand, multiview sketches of machine parts, to the advanced—creating an AutoCAD dimension style containing the style settings defined by the ASME Y14.5-2009 Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard. But un-like the massive technical drawing reference texts on the market, Technical Drawing 101 aims to present just the right mix of information and projects that can be reasonably covered by faculty, and assimilated by students, in one semester. Both mechanical and architectural projects are introduced to capture the interest of more students and to offer a broader appeal. The authors have also created extensive video training (101 videos, nearly 11 hours total) that is included with every copy of the book. In these videos the authors start of by getting students comfortable with the user interface and demonstrating how to use many of AutoCAD's tools and commands. The videos progress to more advanced topics where the authors walk students through completing several of the projects in the book. The CAD portion of the text incorporates drafting theory whenever possible and covers the basics of drawing setup (units, limits, and layers), the tools of the Draw, Modify, and Dimension toolbars, and the fundamentals of 3D modeling. By focusing on the fundamental building blocks of CAD, Technical Drawing 101 provides a solid foundation for students going on to learn advanced CAD concepts and techniques (paper space, viewports, xrefs, annotative scaling, etc.) in intermediate CAD courses. In recognition of the diverse career interests of our students, Technical Drawing 101 includes projects in which students create working drawings for a mechanical assembly as well as for an architectural project. We include architectural drawing because our experience has shown that many (if not most) first-semester drafting students are interested in careers in the architectural design field, and that a traditional technical drawing text, which focuses solely on mechanical drawing projects, holds little interest for these students. The multidisciplinary approach of this text and its supporting materials is intended to broaden the appeal of the curriculum and increase student interest and, it is hoped, future enrollments.

On the Pond Book Excerpt:

In this love letter disguised as an anthology, author Ted Rulseh expresses his deep affinity with that singular body of water we call Lake Michigan. In a collection of 107 seasonally grouped essays that first appeared in his regular column in the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter, his easy prose is at once rich and satisfyingly restrained. While he waxes nearly poetic in some passages, he never allows his writing to wallow in cheap sentimentality. Instead, he lets the life of the Lake, his hometown of Two Rivers, and adjoining lakeshore communities speak for itself, with quietly compelling results. On the Pond evokes a sense of place strong enough to take a rightful position alongside the works of the most celebrated American writers. With the eye of a writer, the soul of an outdoorsman, and the heart of a small-town boy. Ted Rulseh brings home the essence of life next to one of the most fabled of the Great Lakes, in all its many moods. From the sudden and unpredictable storms of autumn and shrieking winter gales to the tentative warmth of spring and summer's full glory, Lake Michigan is revealed as an alternately soothing and tempestuous -- but never dull -- neighbor. A pleasing chronicle of small-town life that manages to hang on amid the relentless march of time and technology, this book is also a keenly observant naturalist's journal. Let it take you away for a while to a place where gulls wheel above steel-gray waves, and dune walkers pull their jackets a little tighter. Book jacket.

Perrin s Tale Book Excerpt:

Perrin has spent all of her young life preparing to be the next laird of the large landholding Nytt Heimili and leader of her clan. With the scrawl of his signature and the stamping of the royal seal into melting wax, Prince Mallus, the newest ruling prince of Bortfjell has declared that no one who is not of pure Borfjellian blood can hold any positions of power. Because Perrin’s mother is from beyond the borders of Bortfjell and therefore considered to be of foreign blood, Perrin finds herself no longer in line to be the heir to either the landholding or the clan. In addition, there are those of Perrin’s father’s court who decide that the prince’s edict is not enough to solidify a shift of power in Nytt Heimili and are determined to eliminate Perrin, causing her to flee her home. With the help of two loyal companions, a wild hill cat named Kipp, several rover families, and a great deal of luck, Perrin’s journey away from all she has known takes her on an adventure filled with narrow escapes, a blowing snow filled mountain pass, scrutiny by the Sommerhjem border guard, and a number of surprises. Perrin’s journey leads her to a place never in her wildest imagination had she expected to find herself.

Recipient of the 2019 Alex Award​​ “Mike Muñoz Is a Holden Caulfield for a New Millennium--a '10th-generation peasant with a Mexican last name, raised by a single mom on an Indian reservation' . . . Evison, as in his previous four novels, has a light touch and humorously guides the reader, this time through the minefield that is working-class America.” --The New York Times Book Review For Mike Muñoz, life has been a whole lot of waiting for something to happen. Not too many years out of high school and still doing menial work--and just fired from his latest gig as a lawn boy on a landscaping crew--he’s smart enough to know that he’s got to be the one to shake things up if he’s ever going to change his life. But how? He’s not qualified for much of anything. He has no particular talents, although he is stellar at handling a lawn mower and wielding clipping shears. But now that career seems to be behind him. So what’s next for Mike Muñoz? In this funny, biting, touching, and ultimately inspiring novel, bestselling author Jonathan Evison takes the reader into the heart and mind of a young man determined to achieve the American dream of happiness and prosperity--who just so happens to find himself along the way.
