Product DescriptionDoes an infinite and all-powerful God really care about the everyday concerns of people? Jim Samra answers with an unequivocal and enthusiastic "Yes!" in this guide to hearing God's direction in everything. From the trivial and mundane to the life-changing, God cares about it all because it concerns his creatures, his creation, and his kingdom.
In this unique book, Samra unpacks biblical passages and shares fascinating and surprising true stories about God's guidance, encouraging readers to keep up a running conversation with their creator, to search for guidance in Scripture, and to pay attention to apparent coincidences. Readers who want to make godly decisions about the big things (where to live, where to go to school, where to work, who to marry) and the seemingly little things (which car to buy, which song to sing in church, who to talk to, what to say) will find a gifted and encouraging guide in Samra.
Product DescriptionRichard Shaw tried virtually every weight-loss system out there. He spent years counting calories, measuring portions; "working off" his guilt in the gym. Occasionally he even lost a bit of weight. But, looking back at his personal photos taken over the past decade, he realised that he never really looked much slimmer year-to-year. In fact, he looked drained. He felt cheated - and hopeless.
However, in trying to work out where he went wrong, he actually discovered where he'd been right! Through trial and error - as well as exhaustive research - he compiled a list of the most effective weight-loss techniques he'd tried over the years. Next, he narrowed them down to a shortlist of the 50 most pain-free. Finally, he tried them.
He laughed. He cried. He couldn't believe how easy it could be! Liberated from the counter-productive rules and restrictions of "diets", the man that used to buy his jogging bottoms from "plus size" catalogues now wears skinny jeans! And here, in this hilarious book, he cuts all of the crap peddled by diet gurus and lifts the veil on some of the easiest and most powerful weight-loss secrets known to man!
Product DescriptionGetting women into her bed is easy. Getting them out is hard.
Women love Cleopatra Giovanni and she loves them back – in ways they’ll never forget. The masculine but very pretty butch radiates charisma and a magnetism that attracts flocks of women – some are random strangers, and some show up because they’ve heard of her infamous skills as a lover (and her “snake”). But those single-minded women are short-term. Cleopatra enjoys their bodies, all the while hoping that the one who will make her believe in forever will come along.
The womanizing ways of this successful New York City real estate executive come to a sudden halt the moment she meets the incredibly gorgeous Jacqueline Tripp. Jacqueline, a naïve but determined closeted lesbian, has been watching Cleopatra for some time, and goes above and beyond to possess her in a way no one ever has. Theirs is a passionate love affair, and life is beautiful as they pleasure each other in ways both wild and sweet.
No one has ever had such power over Cleopatra. In the clutches of this beautiful liar, will she be conquered by obsessive love? Secrets, reckless ways, ghosts of the past, deceptions, and destroyed dreams complicate their love and lead Cleopatra back to old behaviors that feed her desire, but will never make her happy.
Ultimately – Jacqueline wants her. The question is – how far will she go?
Accompanied by a captivating cast of characters ranging from loving family members around the Thanksgiving table to famous porn stars in the bedroom, from best friends and ex-lovers to Brooklyn strippers and African princesses, the struggle for love and the drama and humor that ensue will win readers’ hearts as Cleopatra and Jacqueline wrestle with the way things are in order to create the way things should be.

"The Seventh Mountain by Gene Curtis is pure delight. Curtis wields a tremendous imagination and uses it to transport the reader to another world, where sword wielding Magi fight for good, evil lurks just out of sight and a young hero searches for his destiny. Sure to be compared to Harry Potter, but undeniably more compelling." - Jeremy Robinson

The Seventh Mountain conceals the direst legend known to man. Mark's fate lies within.
"A Lot of books make you laugh and fewer still make you cry, but it takes a truly masterful writer to make you furious at the enemies of the characters and despair when they are in trouble. Gene Curtis is one of these writers. There were elements here and there that were similar to another adolescent magic user you may have heard of, but the world in whole is truly original and imaginative. I can't praise "The Seventh Mountain" high enough, and I can't wait for the new books arrival." –Dan
"Phenomenal!!! An excellent story, well told. Thank you for giving us an alternative (Superior Alterative) to the HP books. And thank you for creating a story that is safe for our kids to read. Can’t wait for more from you." –Tillman
"Gene Curtis show's a lot of promise for a new writer. Read his Bio and you can see he's used to hearing stories, and telling them too. The book start's a little slow but builds as the foundation is laid. This is going to be a series of books so the foundation takes longer than a single book would but it's worth it. By the time the Festival of Tents comes around you know the characters and identify with them. This allows you to really get into the story. The only negative thing is you want to read the next installment but it's not out yet." –David
"As a young person’s book I give this an ‘A’. I’m sure Gene Curtis has heard a few dozen comparisons between this work and the Harry Potter books, and I’m afraid that the comparisons are unavoidable. Having said that, let me add a large HOWEVER…While there are lots of similarities, there exist many delightful differences, as well. I find it easier to relate to the American ‘flavor’ of the characters a lot easier than to the British ‘flavor’ found in the HP books. Additionally, I think Curtis deals with technology/magic interactions better than Rowling." --Bear
"It intrigued me from the first and I have to say, it's a darned good story. I believe some people will say that it's a Christian Harry Potter knock off but I can't say I agree. True, at first I wondered if it was indeed a re-telling of a Harry Potter type tale with a Christian twist but as I got deeper into the book I found it was something quite different." --C.
...love the world you have created here in the 7th mountain. Oddly enough the Christian component of the book added to the story for me as I went to a Church of England School (although I now follow a different path) this provides an additional link between me and the characters, now if only my school had Flags matches (way better than Quidditch BTW)." – James
