BiT s N pEaCe S oF mE aLbErTa Book Excerpt:

This book is an Autobiography in Poetry. It is also a thank you for those who did not let me slip into a black whole of lifelessness during some of the most difficult challenges of my life. Pain, physically, emotionally, spiritually, depression, devastation, death, life, rape, incenses, divorce, marriage, sunlight, darkness and much more. The appreciation of God, my family, and my family of Angels, is so empowering, I was able to find some peace within many areas of my life where torment once lived. For this reason, had no other choice but to honor them in writing as God gave me rhythm to release the joy and pain of my life. You will notice my book does not open like an ordinary book. Our lives are far from ordinary. We can all say, “better then some, worse than others.” I want you to utilize my story to encourage you, to tell your story. To give Honor to God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior. Your Earthly Angels and to “Yourself.” It is time to be honest and make peace with loved ones and yourself. Come out of your shell, be creative, share who you are. I pray that my story will awaken you to find your great purpose on your journey toward the gifts of a prosperous successful life. That God has so richly prepared for us, not just in Heaven, but here on earth too.

Regression Periods in Human infancy Book Excerpt:

Regression periods play a central role in the psychological development of the human baby. Studies of infants have identified 10 periods of regression, or a return to a high frequency of mother-infant contact, within the first 20 months of life. These periods of emotional insecurity in the child signal forthcoming periods of developmental advance and the emergence of an array of new skills as a consequence of parent-infant conflict over body contact and the renegotiation of old privileges. Although the basic idea in this book is an old one, the authors believe that regression periods deserve further study and have identified four questions of central importance today: *Can the phenomenon of regression periods as found by Dutch researchers in 1992 be replicated in other countries and cultures? *What environmental conditions have an effect on these regression periods and how? *Are there physical conditions in infants that show a non-linear distribution over age similar to regression periods? *Have brain changes been detected since the review of Fischer & Rose (1994) at other ages than the six reported by them, and, if yes, how do these relate to the ages at which regression periods are found? Forming the core of this book, the replication studies performed in Sweden, Spain, and England provide support that regression periods are a rreliable phenomenon and should be dealt with accordingly whenever developmental processes in infancy are discussed.

The Best American Short Stories 2021 Book Excerpt:

A collection of the year's best stories selected by celebrated two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward In her introduction to The Best American Short Stories 2021, guest editor JesmynWard says that the best fiction offers the reader a "sense of repair."The stories in this year's collection accomplish just that, immersing the reader in powerfully imagined worlds and allowing them to bring some of that power into their own lives. From a stirring portrait of Rodney King's final days to a surreal video game set in the Middle East, with real consequences, to an indigenous boy's gripping escape from his captors, this collection renders profoundly empathetic depictions of the variety of human experience.

Woman Eating Book Excerpt:

'Absolutely brilliant - tragic, funny, eccentric . . . Claire Kohda takes the vampire trope and makes it her own' RUTH OZEKI Lydia is hungry. She's always wanted to try sashimi, ramen, onigiri with sour plum stuffed inside - the food her Japanese father liked to eat. And then there is bubble tea and the vegetables grown by the other young artists at the London studio space she is secretly squatting in. But Lydia can't eat any of this. The only thing she can digest is blood, and it turns out that sourcing fresh pigs' blood in London - where she is living away from her vampire mother for the first time - is much more difficult than she'd anticipated. Then there are the humans: the people at the gallery she interns at, the strange men who follow her after dark, and Ben, a goofy-grinned artist she is developing feelings for. Lydia knows that they are her natural prey, but she can't bring herself to feed on them. If Lydia is to find a way to exist in the world, she must reconcile the conflicts within her - between her demon and human sides, her mixed ethnic heritage, and her relationship with food, and, in turn, humans. Before any of this, however, she must eat. 'Unsettling, sensual, subversive, Woman, Eating is a profound meditation on alienation and appetite, and what it means to be a young woman' LISA HARDING 'Blistering ... Tells us a lot about the ways we're all searching for belonging' GLAMOUR 'A modern day vampire thriller that also covers race, social isolation, unrequited love and parental loyalty' BBC

What You Need to Know to Understand Book Excerpt:

I didn't ever want to care about another human being again. It hurt too much; left me feeling too empty, too worthless. And so I decided for a second time that I was going to try to play the indifferent game. I was too late though . . . By the time I'd decided, I'd already been affected in ways I hadn't even realized. The virus had taken hold of me, mutating my identity and inner thoughts until they had transformed to almost complete self-abhorrence. It had happened so slowly over the years that I hadn't even noticed it, and only now, in retrospect, do I realize how much my mind had changed in that time. But for you to really understand, you would have to be able to read my mind.
