A Journey Even Huck Finn Would Have Admired


South to Alaska Carries Readers from the Heartland of America to the Last Frontier…THE HARD WAY
(To view the video book trailer for this book, click on "Visit Amazon's Nancy Owens Barnes Page" in the More About the Author section.)

A True Story of Courage, Perseverance and Survival


Born in the dusty heart of Oklahoma in 1916, ten-year-old Melvin sees a photograph of a cabin in the Alaska wilderness in his fourth-grade geography book and dreams of living there. Nearly fifty years later he builds a 47-foot boat in his Arkansas backyard, launches it on the Arkansas River, and cruises 10,000 miles to Alaska by way of the Panama Canal. Melvin has never been south of the United States/Mexico Border and has never been on a boat in the open ocean.

"Learn by doing," he says.

In South to Alaska, author Nancy Owens Barnes takes readers on two journeys. On one, readers follow a young boy's dream that begins in a one-room, Oklahoma schoolhouse in 1926, and ends decades later on an island in southeast Alaska. On the other, readers become a passenger aboard the Red Dog as it cruises along the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers to the Gulf of Mexico where, in 1973, Melvin begins a solo journey along the Caribbean coasts of Mexico and Central America, through the Panama Canal, then into the Pacific Ocean to Alaska. Plagued by mechanical problems, international fraud, violent ocean storms, threats of foreign jail, illness and loneliness, Melvin fears a deadly end before reaching the place of his dreams and returning to the woman he loves.

A true story of courage, endurance and survival, South to Alaska chronicles Melvin's 10,000-mile journey through a dangerous world he knows little about, to a world he cannot forget.

About the Author
As the daughter of the main character in South to Alaska, Barnes watched her father’s dream weave its way through the lives of her family. In 1971, she boarded the Red Dog for the first leg of its journey along the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers.

Barnes was featured in the Winter 2010 issue of Coeur d'Alene Magazine as one of nine North Idaho authors who have achieved acclaim for their work. Her writing has appeared in a variety of publications such as We Alaskans and Idaho Magazine, and in literary journals such as The Lyric and Snowy Egret, the oldest independent journal of nature writing in the United States. In 2008 she received the Zola Award for Poetry from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. She has also authored a short anthology of nature writing titled Moose for Breakfast, as well as a brief guide for beginning writers titled How to Swat the KILLER BEs Out of Your Writing. Barnes received her BA degree from Vermont College of Norwich University where she studied creative writing.

Post Marked

Post Marked

Product Description

Mark Mallon has a lot of friction in his life. He is an abrasive man and an inspired writer. He is profane; he is profound. Mallon isn't the man he could have been. He's not living with loss; he's living as less. How will Mallon thrive? He'll keep you posted. Facebook. Blog. Twitter. He posts. Sex. Souls. Satire. Synchronicity. Mallon writes about them all. Mark Mallon posts velocity waves from a male point of view.

Women love Mark Mallon. He talks to them. He writes about them. He sleeps with them. He falls in love with them. He has an easy way with them. But Mallon is not an easy man.

Mallon has a lot of women in his life. Brady is an intelligent woman and a passionate attorney. She craves sex, cigarettes, and Mark Mallon. Kaitlyn is a headstrong woman carving a career in medicine. She's clinical everywhere except his bed. Ellen is an intense woman. The line between erotic and neurotic is narrow.

Men love Mark Mallon. He talks to them. He writes about them. He drinks with them. He competes with them. He's not always easy with them.

Mallon has a lot of friends in his life. Jack is a spirited man with an amusing temperament. John is a dedicated priest and Mallon's conscience. Tom is a lifelong friend who mingles his affection with antagonism.

Post Marked is not a work of fiction. Post Marked is not a work of fact. Post Marked is a work of friction. A novel of narratives, essays, and Facebook statuses. Post Marked is unlike anything you've read. Mark R. Trost is unlike any author you’ve read. In the tradition of classical literature, Post Marked is an epic allegorical novel restructured into an innovative form.

Product Description

Where's your lantern?
 
The Devil's Gate, the looming barrier that keeps the demons and nightmares at bay every night of the year except for Halloween, comes crashing down. An army of steam-powered automatons, led by the Devil himself, finally gets the better of Jack of the Lantern, the man who tricked the Devil and gave us the jack o' lantern for protection on the darkest night of the year. With their steam-powered soldiers, the demons no longer fear Jack of the Lantern as they pour out in to the world to get into whatever mischief they desire.
 
Even though his parents raised him with stories and old traditions if Ireland, John O'Brien never truly believed, especially not old Jack of the Lantern. One Halloween night, John learns the truth when the demons come for him, leading an army of steam-powered soldiers. With the help of his cousins, Moira O'Neil, heiress to the special ritual that keeps the Devil's Gate closed, and Daniel McRory the inventor, John must take up the mantle of Jack of the Lantern and create a new legend great enough, terrible enough, to scare the Dark Lord and his dark legions back into their dark realm. 
  
He must become Halloween Jack.
 
The Halloween Jack books are part swashbuckling adventure, part steampunk fantasy, that twist and turn the traditions of old tales and legends upside down and inside out. If you enjoy a rollicking tale with clever and cunning heroes, Halloween Jack and his friends are heroes for you!

City of Light (City of Mystery Book 2)

Product Description

Set amid the glamour of Paris, City of Light opens in 1889 Paris on the eve of the Exposition Universelle, the ultimate World’s Fair which debuted Edison’s phonograph, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, and the Eiffel Tower. Detective Rayley Abrams has traveled from Scotland Yard to France to study the new science of forensics with the Parisian police. Lonely and awkward, Rayley easily falls under the spell of a beautiful British expatriate named Isabel Blout, a woman with a murky past and suspicious social connections. Paris may be abuzz with excitement, but there are also rumors that the Exposition is running out of money and that Eiffel may not finish his celebrated tower in time for the opening day celebrations. The French police are so eager to present a perfect image to the eyes of the world that when a most unusual victim washes up on the banks of the Seine, they literally keep the murder under wraps. Back in London, the new forensics unit is investigating a raid on a male brothel when an alarming telegram draws them to Paris to face the possibility that the two cases may be linked. But will Trevor be able to unravel the web of deception in time to save Rayley?

America Rising

America Rising

Product Description

When an old friend of Josh Henson’s is found beaten to death in the parking garage of the San Francisco radio station where he works, the former newspaper reporter turned Internet investigator is drawn from his home in the bucolic Florida Keys into a world of political maneuvering, intimidation and assassination, all parts of a battle not only for control of the country but for its very soul.

In a novel that anticipated the Occupy and Move Your Money movements, Henson begins covering a campaign to take back America from the corporate and political elites that have hijacked it for their own purposes and profit. As he does, he is drawn into another battle, this one fought quietly and without quarter by a shadowy group of men and women who bring their own “particular set of skills” to bear against forces that will stop at nothing in defense of wealth and power.

America Rising is a novel for our times, a novel of audacity and hope, where “change you can believe in” is more than just a slogan. It is not a screed. It’s a story of people banding together to ensure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that “government of the people, by the people and for the people will not perish from the earth.”

Messengers in Denim, The Amazing Thing Parents Can Learn from Teens

Messengers in Denim, The Amazing Thing Parents Can Learn from Teens

Product Description

Many years of pediatric experience have taught Dr. Parnell Donahue that the unique perspective of teens is an invaluable resource for parents who want their children to become men and women of character.

His often frank discussions with teenagers cover topics familiar to parents - drugs, sex, suicide, medical care, financial responsibility, self-image, religion, even the importance of being nice - but with the added benefit of revealing how teens feel about these and other subjects, and what teens perceive their parents feel about those same issues.

Each teen's true story reminds us that, despite appearances, our children carefully watch everything we as parents say and do - and they usually follow our lead. Dr. Donahue further reminds us that children want parents to teach good behavior at all times, "but use words only when necessary." He complements his discussions with medical insight that helps parents fully comprehend the issues facing their teens. The result is a poignant and ofttimes humorous discussion that challenges and usually changes parents' perceptions of modern teenagers.

This I Accomplish: Harriet Powers' Bible Quilt and Other Pieces

This I Accomplish: Harriet Powers' Bible Quilt and Other Pieces

Product Description

The powerful quilts of Harriet Powers (1837-1910), a former Athens, Georgia slave, continue to capture our imagination today. Her two-known creations, the Bible Quilt and the Pictorial Quilt, have independently survived since stitched more than a century ago. Over the years, thousands of museum visitors to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston have stood transfixed viewing her artwork.

Powers' two quilts are arguably the most well-known and cited coverings in American quilt history. But, until today, no one has told the entire, dramatic story of how these two quilts, one of which initially sold for $5, were coveted, cared for, and cherished for decades in private homes before emerging as priceless, national treasures.

This I Accomplish: Harriet Powers' Bible Quilt and Other Pieces brings to light new, exciting facts - many never before published: complete exhibition history for both known quilts; proof Harriet Powers was a literate, award-winning quilter, who stitched at least five quilts and promoted her own artwork; profiles of the two nineteenth century women who sought to purchase the Bible Quilt; profiles of the three men who once owned the Pictorial Quilt; unveiling of a young artist who embellished the Pictorial Quilt; and the name of the person who first made the connection in the twentieth century that Harriet Powers stitched both quilts.

This I Accomplish: Harriet Powers' Bible Quilt and Other Pieces is the most comprehensive resource guide on this influential African American quilter. The book includes nearly 200 bibliographic references, most annotative, including books, exhibition catalogs, newspapers, plays, poetry, interactive map and more. For the first time ever, readers are provided with clues and encouraged to search for Harriet Powers' lost 1882 Lord's Supper Quilt.

This I Accomplish: Harriet Powers' Bible Quilt and Other Pieces is written by Kyra E. Hicks, a quilter whose story quilts have appeared in over forty group exhibitions in places such as the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, NY, the Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the American Folk Art Museum in NY. Hicks is the author of Black Threads: An African American Quilting Sourcebook and Martha Ann's Quilt for Queen Victoria. She lives in Arlington, Virginia.

Product Description

Born land-locked six hundred miles from the nearest ocean, this is an autobiography of an ordinary man with an extraordinary dream of building a sea going yacht and sailing the world.

Opening on the threshold of wild transition in South Africa in the 1970s, the author and his American wife struggle to build a sailing vessel on the outskirts of Johannesburg, whose skyline soon erupts in black clouds of fire and revolution.

Through all the struggles of personal relationships, exodus, poverty, sorrow, and loss, the dream of the sail remains constant. As that dream becomes reality, the story tells of an inexperienced crew battling rough seas, mind numbing calms, near death experiences, solo sailing for thousands of miles, land adventures with distant south sea tribes, and through it all, a constant wonder and appreciation of the amazing world we live in.

There are lessons to be learned from the author's homespun philosophy, honesty, and mistakes, as well as a wealth of sailing facts and accounts of the fascinating places the author and crew visit, all woven together in an amazingly vivid account of this decade long adventure through the oceans of the world.

Thursday at Noon: A Middle East Spy Thriller (Ed Scanlon Cold War Spy Thrillers)

Product Description

Treachery and double-dealing are the rule in this spy vs spy thriller.
A dead Mossad agent, Nazi rocket scientists, the Moslem Brotherhood, a corrupt American ambassador, and two missing Egyptian tank regiments – somebody’s trying to start another Arab-Israeli war.

Richard Thomson is a burnt-out CIA agent who the Agency dumped in Egypt because they couldn’t think of a worse place to send him. Already gnawed on by Langley and set-up by the Cairo police, his day can't get much worse, until someone leaves a dead body on the rear steps of his hotel with its head lopped off like a ripe melon.

A message? No doubt about it. The body belongs to Mahmoud Yussuf, a fat, petty thief and wannabe spy who is peddling photographs of a long-abandoned RAF base in the Egyptian desert.

While the world focuses on Russian missiles in Cuba, no one notices the ones being rolled out in the Egyptian desert pointed at Israel, no one, except Thomson.

Alone and on the run, no one believes his story -- not the CIA, the US Ambassador, and most assuredly not Captain Hassan Saleh, Chief of the Homicide Bureau of the Cairo Police, who wants to hang Thomson for murder.

Like Night of the Generals, this is a murder mystery wrapped inside an international political thriller. Tick Toc, Tick Toc, it's all going to start at Noon on Thursday, unless Thompson can stop them.

This Cold War spy thriller will sweep you back to when John Kennedy was in the White House, Nikita Khrushchev ruled the Kremlin, and Abdel, Gamal Nasser sat precariously in Cairo, threatened by the radical Islamist fringe of the Moslem Brotherhood.

If you're looking for a good beach book or something to curl up with in front of the fire, this fast-moving conspiracy thriller is from the author of Burke’s Gamble, Burke’s War, The Undertaker, Amongst My Enemies, Thursday at Noon, and Aim True, My Brothers, with over 500 Kindle 5-Star Reviews. Enjoy!
