Elsie - Adventures of an Arizona Schoolteacher 1913-1916

In 1912, the first year of Arizona’s statehood, rural Verde Valley was home to enterprising ranchers and farmers who raised cattle, crops ─ and children. These children needed a school. So just as they mail-ordered supplies from the Sears catalog, the community mail-ordered a teacher. Elsie Hayes, a college graduate, came from a world of concerts and literary clubs. The teacher’s tiny shack in Cornvillle was a far cry from her family’s lovely home in Long Beach, California. This cultured young woman drank water from an irrigation ditch, bathed in Oak Creek, and taught in a one-room schoolhouse to children first considered “common,” but with whom she soon developed a mutual love. Though she had come to Arizona feeling a bit superior to these “backwoods” folks, her emotions transformed into admiration and respect, and the untamed wilderness became “breathtaking and glorious.

Remembering Christmas: A Novel

Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls on Thanksgiving weekend begging him to come home after his stepfather has a stroke, Rick is more than a little reluctant. He’s never liked Art and resents the man’s presence in his life, despite the fact that his own father abandoned the family when Rick was just twelve. When what was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and running off the homeless man who keep hanging about, Rick’s attitude sours even more.

Still, slowly but surely, the little bookstore and its quirky patrons–as well as the lovely young woman who works at his side each day–work their magic on him, revealing to Rick the truth about his family, his own life, and the true meaning of Christmas. With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story will have readers remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.

Toby Streams the Universe

Toby Hay is a psychic living in New York City, supporting his screwed-up family using his visions to play the stock market. He also helps his private investigator best-friend with the occasional case–all while trying not to read the future of every person he meets. Such as Toby’s new neighbor, a beautiful painter hiding from her violent Ex. Or Toby’s psychic, sex-pot, sister, scared of her own future. Or his quirky virtual-assistant, struggling to care for her sick child. Toby wants to help them all, but his super-psychic father trained him not to interfere, lest he lose his own sanity in the process. Toby’s father knew everything–he must have had good reasons for his rules. Of course, he vanished nearly a year ago…

Then a voice speaks in Toby’s mind, offering a path away from the dark future predicted by the Family Histories–if only Toby will challenge what his father taught him and learn to use his visions, rather than merely control them. Now Toby must find his father, uncover the identity of the voice, and save his friends from their futures, all while figuring out how to live inside his own, increasingly strange mind.

Independent musicians in 2012 find themselves more confused than ever before, and finding good information can be a challenge. “Your Band Is A Virus – Behind-the-Scenes & Viral Marketing for the Independent Musician” suggests a neutral and clear perspective, rather than feeding any industry illusions of jumping from the jamspace to Rolling Stone.

Advocating presenting the right product to the world, timing a release properly, promoting to music blogs and publications with a personal touch, thinking outside the box, and building on every success, “Your Band Is A Virus” presents a very human, actionable and rational approach to music marketing coming from James Moore, an independent promoter who has tried all the tactics himself, and writes in a humorous and conversational tone.

This updated edition features an informative and revealing exclusive interview with legendary record producer Stuart Epps (Led Zeppelin, Elton John).

Then he finds that the skills he does have – tenacity, aggression, street-smarts – are exactly the ones he needs for his next case – hunting down a cold-blooded murderer who seems to know what his every step will be.

To solve the case Sam must negotiate with his ex-wife, cement a relationship with a new love, unravel an office-based financial fraud and fight off an arrogant murderer armed only with a pen-knife. Altered Life is fast-paced, bitterly comic and introduces a tough new English private eye who knows what he wants and, usually, how to get it.
