A Cutthroat Business: A Savannah Martin Novel (Savannah Martin Mysteries Book 1)

Product Description

"With a dose of Southern charm and a bad boy you won't want to forget, A Cutthroat Business has enough wit and sexual chemistry to rival Janet Evanovich!" - New York Times bestselling author Tasha Alexander

"VERDICT: The hilarious dialog and the tension between Savannah and Rafe will delight fans of chick-lit mysteries and romantic suspense." - Jo Ann Vicarel, Library Journal


Savannah Martin has always been a good girl, doing what was expected and fully expecting life to fall into place in its turn. But when her perfect husband turns out to be a lying, cheating slimeball—and bad in bed to boot—Savannah kicks the jerk to the curb and embarks on life on her own terms. With a new apartment, a new career, and a brand new outlook on life, she’s all set to take the world by storm.

If only the world would stop throwing her curveballs...

Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn’t think she’s supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the ‘bad’ side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.

Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future—not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her.

Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed—or kissed—by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall.

"A frothy girl drink of houses, hunks and whodunit narrated in a breezy first person ... If you love an umbrella in your drink, grab A Cutthroat Business for a quick beach read." -Lyda Phillips, Nashville Scene

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.

Find The Upside Of The Down Times: How To Turn Your Worst Experiences Into Your Best Opportunities

Product Description

“I was shot in the center of the chest by an unknown assailant with a .38 caliber handgun. It was one of the best things that ever happened to me.”
- Dr. Rob Pennington

Shot by an assailant, fired from his job, audited by the IRS, and caring for a critically ill spouse until her death, psychologist Dr. Rob Pennington learned that even in the worst of times, positive possibilities could still be found. In his new book, Find the Upside of the Down Times: How to Turn Your Worst Experiences into Your Best Opportunities, Dr. Pennington empowers readers, giving them insights and tools to turn sorrows and challenges into personal growth and fortune.

In the last decade, we have had to face problems more serious than ever before -- personally, nationally, and globally. With so much seemingly needless pain and destruction in the human race, we need greater inner strength to remain hopeful, to avoid cynicism and despair. Find the Upside of the Down Times: How to Turn Your Worst Experiences into Your Best Opportunities is a book for anyone dealing with the inevitable curveballs of modern living. When we learn, as Dr. Pennington did, to view life’s painful challenges in a different way, we can turn our worst experiences into our best opportunities.

Each autobiographical chapter relates a true story from Pennington’s life, followed by the personal lesson he learned. The chapters end with activities he designed for readers to assist them in saving time and pain in turning their own negative experiences into positives. With wit and tenderness, vulnerability and candor, Pennington takes the reader on a journey through many aspects of their own lives, from career and finances to relationships, education, and health. And when tragedy strikes, Dr. Pennington demonstrates through his own humanity that even though we all have difficult times, we also all have the ability to rise above them.

Dr. Rob Pennington describes how to ride out the down times in 9 steps while:
•Turning your worries into positive action plans
• Turning your fears into opportunities for hope and help
• Turning your life into something better than you thought possible

Dr. Rob Pennington is an educational psychologist and award winning professional speaker who specializes in coaching leaders to increase productivity through improved team effectiveness and change management. Trained through the National Training Laboratory (NTL) in organizational development in the early 70's and a former faculty member of three universities, he is a four-time recipient of the Mental Health Association’s Outstanding Speaker Award and one of Meeting Professional International’s original Platinum Presenters.

The Tourist Trail: A Novel (Across Oceans Book 1)

Product Description

An IndieReader Discovery Award Winner

Biologist Angela Haynes is accustomed to dark, lonely nights as one of the few humans at a penguin research station in Patagonia. She has grown used to the cries of penguins before dawn, to meager supplies and housing, to spending most of her days in one of the most remote regions on earth. What she isn’t used to is strange men washing ashore, which happens one day on her watch.

The man won’t tell her his name or where he came from, but Angela, who has a soft spot for strays, tends to him, if for no other reason than to protect her birds and her work. When she later learns why he goes by an alias, why he is a refugee from the law, and why he is a man without a port, she begins to fall in love—and embarks on a journey that takes her deep into Antarctic waters, and even deeper into the emotional territory she thought she’d left behind.

Against the backdrop of the Southern Ocean, The Tourist Trail weaves together the stories of Angela as well as FBI agent Robert Porter, dispatched on a mission that unearths a past he would rather keep buried; and Ethan Downes, a computer tech whose love for a passionate activist draws him into a dangerous mission.

"The Tourist Trail is at once a romance, an adventure story, an environmental polemic, and a keen study of just how animalistic humans are." — Phoebe Literary Journal

"The Tourist Trail by John Yunker is an exciting, thoughtful, intelligent, and extremely well-written eco-thriller." — The Literary Lioness

"This eco-thriller is a plausible and entertaining page-turner that offers romance, engaging characters, and a fascinating plot." — IndieReader (Winner of the IndieReader Popular Fiction Award)

"This immensely readable and exciting novel brings together the seemingly disjointed lives of characters who share a common thread: whether they know it or not, their purpose is to be devoted to the cause of helping animals...The Tourist Trail is epic, sprawling and strikingly cinematic."
-- Our Hen House

After selling her home in the suburbs, Lucy Klein decides to pursue her lifelong dream of starting an arts community in the Berkshire Mountains. She envisions a creative oasis where struggling painters, sculptors and musicians visit from around the world. But the dream soon becomes a nightmare when the artists arrive and not a single one can create anything -- except trouble, that is.

To make matters worse, Lucy's ultra-high-maintenance mother, Anjoli is singularly focused on finding a holistic cure for her teacup Chihuahua's obsessive compulsive, hair-pulling disorder. Rebirthing, acupuncture and white light therapy just aren't helping poor little Paz. But Anjoli soon has new problems to contend with, like the NYU sorority house going up across the street from her.

Then there's Lucy's gorgeous cousin Kimmy who recently married herself in a dress made of disco ball mirrors, and now wants to get pregnant with Ivy League sperm. Deciding sperm banks have too many rules, she decides to go about things the old fashion way -- with a roundtrip train ticket to Princeton and a change of panties in her designer purse.

Lest we forget about Lucy's 84-year-old Aunt Bernice who is grieving the loss of her sister who recently died at Red Lobster. Though she misses her Floridian counterpart, Bernice is not going to let anything stand in her way of exploring brave new worlds --and Brazilian bikini waxes.

Enjoy a wild ride through the world of way over-the-top kiddie birthday parties, puppy psychotherapy and "performance art" weddings with a family so nutty, it will make you appreciate your own!

Between Lucy's relatives and the artists from hell, it's a wonder she can focus on her own life.

***Warning*** Before you purchase this book please be aware that Foundlings ends with a thrilling Cliff Hanger, as does Paladins, the second book in the series.

Praise for Foundlings, Book One of The Peleg Chronicles,
“Next to the Narnia series your book has been the only other book that my kids have begged me to read. My boys remind me several times a day that this is one of their favorite books.” – the Myers family, florida

“Foundlings is one of those books that caused everything else in my life to be put on hold so I could finish it. Being that I am a 31-year-old mother of three, not many novels can claim that these days. Foundlings was just that good. It was a story that truly impacted me, challenged me, and deepened my faith. It now holds a place of honor on my bookshelf... I will always cherish it.” – Itsthatonegirl

“This book gets not only approval but a standing ovation. Foundlings not only gives you a ride that combats any roller coaster it gives you a true sense of heroism and family discussions that center on the glory of God's creation and Word.” – Under the Golden Apple tree


Overview of Foundlings…

The Northern realms. Circa 2000 B.C.

It was in the days of Peleg when the world was divided. After the flood of Noah, after the Tower of Babel and the dispersion … when beasts were more numerous than men.

Two orphans, Thiery and Suzie.

The Lady Mercy without a protector.

Priests of the dragon, Baal and the Queen of Heaven are seeking sacrifices for their false gods.

The Death Hunt!

In a land of giants and dragons, and men running from the knowledge of their Creator, wickedness spreads as a plague, but a remnant of faithful souls shine in the darkness.


More Praise…
“Can I just say I am overwhelmed with thankfulness for this book! Really, I'm at a loss for the appropriate words to give this book the honor that it's due.” – My Life On A Taffy Pull

"At first, I was a bit hesitant because I am not a giant and dragon type of girl. However, I found myself anxious each night to indulge in the lives of these notorious characters. Such an uplifting reading experience involving courage and faith … A read aloud at its best." – Mom of six

“Mr. Harding has certainly written books that have great potential to become classic pieces of literature. There is excitement with every sentence. You won't want to put the book down, and when you come to the end...you're going to want more!” – Mona Lisa

Halloween Jack and the Devil's Gate (A Steampunk Fantasy with a Dash of Irish Mythology Book 1)

Halloween Jack and the Devil's Gate (A Steampunk Fantasy with a Dash of Irish Mythology Book 1)

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!

Superior Justice (Lake Superior Mysteries Book 1)

Product Description

THE CONFESSION THAT COULD KILL HIM...

Jonah Borden is not your typical Lutheran pastor, and he takes pains to make sure everyone knows it. He's a tough-guy, thinks-he's-funny, rock-music-playing, gourmet-cooking, painfully-moderate-drinking, hard-boiled man of the cloth. He is even available for a bit of romance, under the right circumstances.

Doug Norstad, a member of Jonah Borden's church, is arrested for a vigilante killing. Norstad shares his true alibi with Borden, under the privileged status of religious confession. Knowing now that the man is innocent, Borden must prove it somehow, without divulging his secret. Along the way he uncovers a twisted series of murders and cover ups. Before it is all over, Borden himself has been bribed, beaten, shot, and arrested for murder. Even worse, he may be falling in love.

Set in the midst of the striking beauty of Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastline, Superior Justice will draw you in with its unique and quirky characters, and keep you guessing until the end.

Sixteen-year-old Jolie Livingston's closest and only friend Drew is this really hot dead guy, and it bites that the self-absorbed princesses at school cannot even see him. That's right she can communicate with the dead. It's the living she has trouble with. She and her mom inherited this awesome crib in Plymouth, MA. It's quite a step-up from the homeless shelter in New Orleans, but there's a catch. They can't afford the past due mortgage, so Jolie's working on that.

She starts a ghost hunting business called Ripsters. Somehow she's managed to recruit Brittany, a glamour SAP smothered in pink, and a techie allergic to ghosts. Brit actually thinks he resembles the R&B singer Chris Brown. All that pink has clouded her vision. They both have special talents Jolie's hoping will be useful to their venture. Right now, they're working for a family in need of major therapy due to a dead guy with a hole in his head.

How Wall Street Rips You Off - and what you can do to defend yourself

How Wall Street Rips You Off - and what you can do to defend yourself

Product Description

There are hundreds of books describing past financial crises and predicting yet more crises in the future. There are countless books advising investors on how to invest their money. The get rich quick schemes often sell like hotcakes both at bookstores and at the aggressive sales seminars put on by many authors. There are many books written about specific areas within the investment universe such as mutual funds, annuities, stocks and bonds.

This book is designed to be different. It is hoped that it can serve as a “one-stop source” for many different groups and individuals. It should be noted that when the term Wall Street is used in this book it is used to refer to broker dealers who are registered with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), a Self-Regulatory Organization (SRO), whether the firm be located within the New York City financial center or in any other area throughout the United States.

The various sections of this book will walk readers through obstacles faced by the average investor in dealing with Wall Street. The first objective of this book is to explore the many ways in which Wall Street rips off investors. The second is to debunk the myth that FINRA provides meaningful protection for investors against Wall Street negligence and abuse. The third major objective is to provide specific steps investors can take to defend themselves against the aggressive onslaught of Wall Street profiteers. Ultimately, the goal is to provide readers with the knowledge, tools and strategies that can be employed as defenses against becoming a Wall Street victim. Sadly, readers will learn that the system is designed to reward dishonesty and the lack of transparency.

Special attention is paid to three areas which have been sources of particularly egregious conduct on the part of Wall Street in recent years. Mutual funds, annuities (particularly equity indexed annuities and variable rate annuities), and structured finance products are used to victimize millions of trusting investors around the world. It is particularly important that readers have an understanding of how these products are being successfully utilized by Wall Street to victimize investors.
