Breaking TWIG

Product Description

:: Over 200,000 copies of Breaking TWIG downloaded on Kindles ::

WARNING:  According to Breaking TWIG's Kindle readers, you may not be able to put this book down!

Set in rural Georgia in the 1960s, BREAKING TWIG is a coming-of-age novel about Becky (Twig) Cooper, a young woman trying to survive the physical and emotional abuse of her mother, Helen, a beautiful, calculating woman who can, with a mere look, send the meanest cur in Sugardale, Georgia running for its life.

Not even Twig's vivid imagination, keen wit, and dark sense of humor is enough to help her survive the escalating assaults of Helen and a new stepbrother, but help comes from an unexpected source--Frank, her stepfather. Sometimes, having one person who loves and believes in you is all a girl needs to keep hope alive.

Often raw and irreverent and sprinkled with all the Southern flavoring found in a good bowl of chicken and dumplings, BREAKING TWIG, is about finding love where we least expect it, destroying lives with easy lies, and realizing each of us determine our own truth.

:: Recent RAVE Reviews for Breaking TWIG ::

If you are looking for a book that takes a chance, tips the scale and
teeters on the edge of "How in the hell did she write this?!?" Then
Deborah Epperson is your girl and Breaking Twig is your story."  Melissa
E. Perea, Five-Star Reader Review

"With a voice as rich as sorghum molasses, Epperson seductively draws the
reader into the rural south of the 60s and 70s. In the southern
tradition of Tennessee Williams and William Faulkner, the author
explores the depths of the human heart and spirit, with wisdom, humor,
and unflinching truthfulness."  D. Burke, Five-star Reader Review

Book reviews

English Teaching Professional, January 2009 
Review:

Compelling Conversations is a recommended resource for teachers who want to make their conversation classes more learner-centered. It should be especially appealing to those who wish to escape the confines of the Presentation-Practice-Production approach and do without a formal grammatical or functional syllabus. It reflects the authors' considerable professional experience, and would be a notable addition to any English teacher's bookshelf. - Hall Houston


Review:

This outstanding resource (Compelling Conversations) allows teachers to confidently walk into an advanced ESL classroom with self-contained, engaging conversation lessons... I wish I would have had that book in my old adult/university classes. A great book for adult education teachers, university instructors, and private tutors!" - Eric Busch

Santa Monica Daily Press, 1/16/2009 
Review:

Have you been looking for a good ESL manual? If you have, I think Compelling Conversations is one to consider. ...This manual will go best with the advanced ESL student or even at coffee shop conversation clubs. It will bring about authentic, not stilted communication, which should be the purpose of an ESL course. It is easier for a person to learn a language through conversation rather than by a given list of vocabulary words. That is what makes this a welcome addition to the material which can be used for the immigrant who must learn English to advance in the world. - Dane Robert Swanson 

The Takers: Book One of the Oz Chronicles

The Takers: Book One of the Oz Chronicles

Product Description

The first volume in The Oz Chronicles recalls both Stephen King’s The Stand and L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz. When 13-year-old Osmond “Oz” Griffith wakes from an illness on the floor of his closet, he discovers the world overrun by man-eating monsters, the Takers, and it’s largely his fault. In an effort to make things right, he gathers a band of survivors (a baby, an aged mechanic and a talking gorilla, among others), and sets off down his version of the yellow brick road, leading to the Atlanta Zoo. Along the way, he learns that his destiny was written by Steve, a boy from his past. Afflicted with Down Syndrome, Steve created new worlds, replete with battles between good and evil, in the comic books that served as his sole refuge from the teasing of Oz and his friends. Steve’s untimely suicide leaves only the comic books as clues to vanquishing the Takers.

Product Description

You know him, but you can't remember his name. He is the one that is always there, in the background, all but invisible to those roaming the hallways. What if he had a secret? What if it was a secret that even he didn't know?

Test Davis has always been a blur to those around him. He's a shadow like a million other kids--not smart enough for the academic team, not beast enough for the football team, not extroverted enough for the drama crowd. In all things Test is just...not, which is why no one ever notices him.

But what happens when someone does notice him-- Nicole Paxton, a cheerleader, no less? What happens on the night that Test finds out there's nothing average about him and that a powerful gift has been hidden within, secretly waiting to be set free and alter his life forever? The question is, will that power save him and those he loves or tear them apart?


Failing Test is approximately 84,000 words.

Miracles: 32 True Stories

Product Description

A dying child counts angels in her room. A teenage boy stuns doctors by recovering from a massive brain injury. A bubble of protection surrounds a man about to be hit by a car...These miraculous accounts and twenty-nine more are recorded in Miracles: 32 True Stories.


"Almost every month I get a request to either read or edit a book or booklet, and to be honest, I dread to see them coming, because most of them are hardly worthy of a positive recommendation. When Joan asked me to read her Miracles, I was not looking forward to reading it at all ... much to my surprise I could not stop reading it until I had read the entire book. Each story was different enough to keep my interest, and God's finger-print was all over each of the stories told. There was never one bit of doubt who authored each of those stories..." BILL IRWIN, CHRISTIAN AUTHOR AND SPEAKER

Midwife : Liza

Midwife : Liza

Product Description

The year is 1339. Liza’s midwifery skills are needed by the inhabitants of Hollingham. Knowing this keeps the lonely old woman going, together with the occasional ‘trip’ to her long dead husband and children. But she makes one mistake, and the villagers begin to suspect she is using occult spells to harm them. She tries desperately to regain their trust, but time is running short. Rosalind, rich, lonely and naïve, wants to experience true love and falls in love with a monk, by whom she conceives a child. Liza and the Lady Isabella, Rosalind’s mother, must pick up the pieces. None of the three women will ever be the same again.

LIZA is the first book in the MIDWIFE series, which tells the story of midwives, women and childbirth in England from medieval to modern times.

Author's note - This book was previously titled 'MIDWYF: LISA'. The cover still contains the old title because I like the medieval spelling, but the 'official' title brings the book into line with the series.
MIDWIFE: BEATRIX, set in Hollingham and London in the 1630s, is due to be published early 2013.


Valerie Levy holds a PhD in Midwifery Studies from the University of Sheffield. She has published in many professional, peer reviewed journals, and co-edited the ‘Midwifery Practice’ series of textbooks, which are still in use worldwide. Now retired, Valerie lives in France with her husband.

Synopsis:
The discovery of a new world may be the very thing that threatens the freedom of the human race and changes the destiny of mankind forever.

Twenty-three years after the disappearance of the Mars I space shuttle, NASA receives a mysterious transmission from Adrian Palmer, the commander of the mission. Adrian's brother, Kevin, wastes no time funding the Mars II rescue mission, commanded by Jake Palmer, Adrian's son.

Jake and Dr. Steven "Skip" Hendricks, a NASA physicist, travel through a wormhole that Skip believes was the reason the Mars I crew disappeared. They eventually crash-land on the planet Terrest and are thrust into a dangerous conflict. The native Terrestrians are at war against a super-race of humans called the Gnols, led by Koroan Chast. The Terrestrian's struggle is futile because of the godlike abilities of the Gnols.

Now, the only hope mankind has may rest on a 2000-year-old prophecy discovered in an ancient temple on Terrest. But before the prophecy can come to pass, Adrian and Jake must first stop the Gnols from attacking Earth and enslaving the human race.

Product Description

**This is book one of the Wishing Well Series. The entire collection is also available. Marinade, Bigger, Carryout.**



What if having your most desired wishes come true was as easy as throwing something in an old well, and stating your wish? What if the one granting your wish was a beautiful demon named Daniel? Would you take a chance?

Allison Philips, a girl you'll love to hate, is on the verge of losing her best friend, Sarah. She reluctantly decides to go to the freshman wishing well party with the hope of finding her friend and giving her an apology. Never a believer in anything but herself, she makes a wish that she knows will make Sarah happy. Instead, Allison fights for her life as Daniel makes her wish come true in the most agonizing and terrifying way possible.
Amanda is Allison's old high school classmate. She throws her bracelet in the old well, and uses her wish to land the one guy that hasn't even noticed her existence. Daniel grants her wish, and Amanda soon realizes that her new boyfriend holds a dark and gruesome past. He plans to use Amanda to fufill his own sadistic desires.

Back in his home, under the well, he pulled his shirt over his head, and removed the leather strap from his nape. His hair fell to his shoulders, and he shook his head in relief from the binding.
The upcoming party would prove to be quite entertaining, of that he was certain, and he walked to his full length mirror to take a good look at what everyone would see in a few short hours time.
A tan and very hard body; the perfect blend to bring the young people to his side in the beach side town. He was taller than most men, and his smile was of absolute perfection.
The demon laughed at his chiseled body, and ran his hand down the perfectly sculpted chest and stomach. When his hand lowered enough to trail over his thick c*ck through his jeans, he smiled again. “I would swear I was made by a woman.”
Vanity, it was his favorite sin, and one he quite enjoyed

* * * * *

Praise for Amazon's Top Rated and Best Sellers Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles series:

"I confess, until I read Grainger's Cash and Miles stories, I always thought of Westerns as dusty, dated affairs. But Grainger proved me wrong. His blend of Westerns and crime fiction is pitch-perfect, bringing out the best in both genres."
-- Chris F. Holm

"Plain and simple, Edward A. Grainger's, ADVENTURES OF CASH LARAMIE AND GIDEON MILES, proves that there's not only life in the western genre, but it's kicking butt and taking names. This is one of the most entertaining Westerns of the year."
-- Larry D. Sweazy

"These aren't just great Westerns; they're great stories."
-- Steve Weddle

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam

Product Description

2001 Frankfurt eBook Award Finalist: The year is 1968. Like thousands of other American boys, Carl Melcher is drafted and sent to Vietnam. His new company is infected with the same racial tensions plaguing the nation. Despite that, Carl makes friends on both sides of the color line. The war, like a tiger lurking in the bushes, picks off its victims one by one. Naively over-optimistic, Carl believes that karma and good intentions will save him and his friends. Then fate intervenes to teach Carl something of the meaning of life, and death.

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam was a finalist at the 2001 Frankfurt eBook Awards, along with works by Joyce Carol Oates and David McCullough.

Recommended by: Library Journal:

“In this fictional account of the Vietnam War, Clayton shuns drama and political issues, detailing instead the minutiae of one soldier's experience. The simple language reflects the identity of an uncertain youth drawn involuntarily into a new and unfamiliar world. …this novel does reveal Clayton, himself drafted in 1968, to be a reflective and strategic writer."

After The Rising: An Irish Family Saga (The Irish Trilogy Book 1)

Product Description

Twenty years ago, Jo Devereux fled Mucknamore, the small Irish village where she grew up, driven away by buried secrets and hatreds, swearing never to return 

Now she is back and wants to uncover the truth about what really went on between her family and their friends, the O’Donovans, during Ireland’s bitter Civil War.

The consequences of that division in the 1920s carried down into Jo’s own life, shattering her relationship with Rory O’Donovan, the only man she ever loved and driving her to leave Ireland.

Now, Jo’s estranged mother has died, leaving her a suitcase full of letters and diaries that may answer questions about the past. 

Was her great-uncle really murdered by Dan O’Donovan, his best friend? 

What would drive somebody to do that? 

And what part did her beloved grandmother play in this conflict?

Jo's happy life in San Francisco has been unraveling since her friend Richard died last year. So now, much to her own surprise, she decides to stay on in Mucknamore and see if the letters and diaries bequeathed by her mother might provide the key to unlock the truth.

Over the course of a long hot summer, Jo draws close again to Rory, who still lives in Mucknamore and is mired in an unhappy marriage. As she tells him about their shared family past, they realize their love affair was doomed long before they were born.

Now that they know, can there be a second chance at happiness? Rory is urging her to rebel, to forget the past and start over again. 

But reading their shared history has made Jo cautious. The strength of her feelings frightens her. Is there any way she can be true to Rory and herself, but also to the family she rejected when she was young and headstrong?

After The Rising is a sweeping, multigenerational tale set in the 1920s and 1990s Ireland and 1980s San Francisco. It is the first book in The Irish Trilogy, followed by Before the Fall

This is perfect for fans of Barbara Erskine, MJ Lee or Anne Griffin.

Miss Impractical Pants

Miss Impractical Pants

Product Description

Katie Sutherland has a plan—an Amazing Plan—and no sweatpants-wearing cheapskate pervert (or any other string of adjectives describing the list of men who have been on her dating docket) is going to keep her from accomplishing it. When Jared Stone comes to town in all his beef-cakey SWAT-man glory, everyone is convinced he’s The One for Katie. Everyone but Katie. So, when Katie is offered an internship in England working for entrepreneur—make that, hot entrepreneur, Lucas Hayden, she jumps at the opportunity to get far away from the unwelcome romantic pressure. If Katie thought living in England was going to be anything like an uneventful BBC special, boy, was she mistaken. When Lucas insists she attend a high-society ball, wearing a borrowed diamond pendant that’s way too big to be real, Katie knows she’s way out of her rugged Colorado element. Not only that, but her borrowed diamond is not only real, but rare, and there’s more than one status-stalker salivating to get their hands around Katie’s neck.

Dreaming Montana

Dreaming Montana

Product Description

Set in 1993, Dreaming Montana invokes the spirit of Seattle at the height of the grunge era, with the city as the backdrop for two strangers to potentially cross paths.

In a single day, Cara Gallagher experiences an erotic dream about a man she doesn’t know and has a premonition of her identical twin—at the exact moment her sister dies in a car accident. To escape her grief and a loveless marriage, Cara accepts a temporary job reassignment in Seattle, where she continues to have sensuous dreams of the unknown man. There she encounters an angel who claims to be sent by her dead sister to help her find the man in her dreams. Meanwhile, photographer Jay Amiens sees angel wings on his film and has recurring intimate dreams about a woman he doesn’t know—but would love to meet in person.

EXCERPT from DREAMING MONTANA:

“Here she was back in Seattle, and the whole city lay before her like a giant maze. All she wanted to do was run to the center of it, where she would find him. Now she kept her head up when she walked, searching the faces of people passing by, looking for him everywhere in the crowd. Among the flower stalls at Pike Place Market, while she paused to admire the fresh bouquets, she wondered if he rambled these same aisles. She would see him; she had to believe that now. He was here somewhere, waiting for her. At any moment, she could meet him. Until then, she would walk the same city, breathe the same air, see the same stars in the same sky as he did. And she would wait.”

As a Shield, William Grayson's entire life centered around combat training for the sole purpose of protecting the Circle. To him there was nothing else in life, no other temptations, no goals, no dreams of family. He and the other Shields were trained warriors; a tolerated, necessary evil in a world where the only religion was peace. Aside from them, hundreds of years had passed since humans had engaged in any type of war, aggression, or even self-defense. The Last War had consumed the entire planet, destroying nearly everyone and everything. The fleeting remains of humanity had managed to rebuild the Twelve Cities focused entirely on establishing a peaceful people and a peaceful planet.

When the aliens came, they had no intention on participating in this utopia humans had spent centuries perfecting.

Grayson and the few remaining Shields must train and lead the very society that before had considered them a nuisance. Forced to reconcile new emotions he was forever immune to, and to engage those who hated what he stood for, Grayson must learn to go beyond his training as he slowly realizes that he is now responsible for not only the liberation of his planet, but to bring a new definition of life to every last human.
