Product Description

Stay Thirsty Publishing Proudly Presents Forty Years Later – 10th Anniversary Edition (Newly Revised).

An Amazon #1 Bestseller with over 55,000 eBooks downloaded from veteran author Steven Jay Griffel. A compelling story of second chances in life and love.

Successful middle-aged publishing executive David Grossman risks everything to fulfill a promise to a woman he has not seen in forty years. When former teen sweethearts David and Jill reunite after four decades, sparks fly, despite his long marriage to Allison and Jill’s LGBT reputation.

Jill Black, a “one-hit wonder” Hollywood screenwriter, is consumed by her last chance to write and direct her own film. Success will reinvigorate her career. Failure will end it. When a pompous studio “suit” begins to undermine her authority and threatens to kill her project, the pressure forces her to spin from rage to murderous madness and she ensnares David in her dark plot.

Love and betrayal. Revenge and redemption. For some it ends happily. For others it all comes undone in this fast-paced drama of Baby Boomers trying to hang on to their lives, their families, and their dreams. A riveting novel of suspense and humor, masterfully told by Steven Jay Griffel.

“Griffel’s narrative is a rush - sharp, spot on, and funny as hell.” - Laurie Rozakis, Author, Editor & Public Speaker.

Forty Years Later is a great read. It’s fast, edgy, but poignant. Steven Jay Griffel really captures the emotions of the Woodstock generation forty years later.” - Les Kaye, Musician and Emmy Award winner.

From the 120 Amazon customer reviews:

“Lost Dreams Redeemed … Everyone Wants A Do-Over … Excellent depiction of individual personalities ... I reminisced in a dream like sort of way of my Woodstock experience … Well written and easy reading … I chose this book because at the center is the Catskills - a bungalow colony - which is where I met my future husband at the age of 13 … If you've ever cared for someone and years later wondered, “What if ...”, Forty Years Later is great fun, with a dash of poignancy.”

About the Author

Steven Jay Griffel is a novelist, editor and publisher. He is the author of five novels and his book, Forty Years Later, became a #1 Best Seller on Amazon in two categories. He lives in Queens, New York, with his wife Barbara.

Amazon.com Review

The writing in this excerpt is strong and effective if wordy. Harley is an appealing character and the author has succeeded in making the reader want to know what happens to her. The device of the almond is an especially deft touch and the reader knows immediately what is meant whenever it occurs in the text. The chronology is a bit awkward. Harley says she got thrown out of the house and when. Once forewarned, the reader keeps waiting for it to happen. The backstory bogs down the action and it doesn't happen when the reader expects it, or judging from the last page, at all. The character of Harley's father as uber-abuser with absolutely no redeeming qualities gives this story a credibility issue. Actual abusers usually have some quality that binds their victims to them. Some ruthless editing to eliminate the more redundant details and clean up the sequence of events, along with giving Harley's father one or two lovable characteristics would make this story leap off the page. It deserves it.

Amazon.com Review

This is a novel I would love to read! The excerpt is original and beautifully crafted. The writer deftly uses his/her own voice rather than relying on imitation in the narrative. When writing about the this type of disturbing subject matter, it is easy to overuse tired, meaningless and cliched expression. But the narrator's voice through the first person point-of-view is original, sensitive and genuine, bringing the reader closer to her and the situation we find her in. I definitely feel this novel can be successful.

THE ROAD FROM MOROCCO

THE ROAD FROM MOROCCO

Product Description

The Road from Morocco recounts the extraordinary life of Saadia and her daughter Wafa. It transports readers back in time to a Middle Eastern society far removed from modern American sensibilities—to Morocco, where Saadia was born and wed against her will at thirteen. Based on recorded history and family memories, the book chronicles Saadia’s arranged marriage and hardships as a young mother to Wafa, a French-educated, sexually liberated Muslim woman, who traveled to Europe and then to America, reaching a top position on Wall Street—in theory, the fulfillment of her American dream but in reality an overwhelming experience that threatens everything she holds dear.
Like the best of fiction, this is an intensely personal emotional rollercoaster tale full of twists and turns, which make it hard to put down. In the words of a reader: “It's beautiful even in the heartbreaking moments and utterly exquisite in the pleasant ones.”

Hike Your Own Hike: 7 Life Lessons from Backpacking Across America (WanderLearn Series Book 1)

Hike Your Own Hike: 7 Life Lessons from Backpacking Across America (WanderLearn Series Book 1)

Product Description

Francis Tapon sought wisdom when he quit his Silicon Valley job, donated most of his belongings, and set off to hike the Appalachian Trail. He and his hiking partner, Lisa Garrett, traversed the 2,168 mile footpath by walking for nearly four months from sunrise to sunset. The pilgrimage gave him insights that not only apply to backpacking, but to life itself. It also taught him that there sure are easier ways to go from Maine to Georgia.

While you enjoy the intense journey, you’ll learn: Why the Appalachian Trail’s credo is relevant to your life.

- How to control your finances.
- How to discover and pursue your passion.
- How to avoid costly mistakes and conquer your fears.
- How to dramatically improve your health.
- Why the Appalachian Trail teaches you more about human nature than Mother Nature.
- How to shrug off misfortune and live stress free.
- Why mosquitoes just want to be your friend.

Packed with a map, photographs, sidebars, and self assessment quizzes!

Francis Tapon knew he had a good life—he had a great career, fantastic friends, a nice home, and a cool electric shaver. However, something was missing. His life was good, but not great. It was quite predictable and safe, but thoroughly uninspiring. He wondered how to take his life to the next level.
He thought it would be smart to do what the sages do: hang out in the woods for several months and get some wisdom. Although he ultimately found wisdom, finding it wasn’t as easy or as romantic as all those spiritual books say it is. They neglect to mention that during the hot humid summer months there’s no air conditioning in the woods.

Hike Your Own Hike balances the story of an adventurous and insightful trip across the Appalachian Mountains with practical advice on how to squeeze the most out of life both on and off the trail. It’s enlightening, educational, and entertaining. It’s a
serious book that doesn’t take itself so seriously.

Hiking the entire Appalachian Trail in one season has soared in popularity over the last 20 years. Compared to 1986, there are eight times more people trying to “thru-hike” it! What accounts for this phenomenon?

Today people are overly stressed and need a break to return to the fundamentals. Feeling disconnected from the rhythms of life, hikers go on multi-month trails to recalibrate their perspective and to remind themselves of what really matters.

Hike Your Own Hike is about an incredible pilgrimage, what we can learn from it, and how to enrich our lives without getting too muddy.

Francis is donating 50% of his book royalty to the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail. So even if you don’t think you’ll like this book, buy it anyway so you can support those trails.

“This is definitely not your ordinary Appalachian Trail thru-hike memoir.”
—Brian T. Fitzgerald, Chair, Appalachian Trail Conservancy

“Francis Tapon’s book is a marvelous addition to the very best outdoor and personal development books available. Against the
backdrop of a rich and unique journey along the Appalachian Trail, Hike Your Own Hike offers the reader a wealth of
practical how-tos blended masterfully with the wisdom of the ages. This isn’t another boring hiking guidebook, it’s a wonderful
guidebook for life.” —Kim and Demetri Coupounas, Co-Founders, GoLite

“Don’t expect a dull trail log. Don’t expect a humdrum self-help book. Instead, expect to laugh and learn as Hike Your Own Hike weaves practical wisdom with an epic journey as the backdrop.”—Dave Roberson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Hitachi Data Systems

“It’s hard to imagine a book that combines the strengths of Bill Bryson’s "Walk in the Woods" and Stephen Covey’s "7 Habits of Highly Effective People," but "Hike Your Own Hike" has done it!” —Marco Iansiti, Harvard Business School Professor

The Hidden Europe: What Eastern Europeans Can Teach Us (WanderLearn Series Book 2)

The Hidden Europe: What Eastern Europeans Can Teach Us (WanderLearn Series Book 2)

Product Description

Francis Tapon yearned for a European adventure, but Western Europe seemed too tame and passé. So he traveled for 3 years visiting every Eastern European country—all 25 of them.

The Hidden Europe cleverly mixes insightful facts with hilarious personal anecdotes. It's profound, yet light. Francis Tapon is a sharp observer who helps you distinguish a Latvian from a Lithuanian, while not confusing Slovenia with Slovakia.

You'll also learn:

- Why Baltic people are human squirrels.
- When and why Poland disappeared from Europe.
- Why Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia broke up.
- Why Hungarians are really Martians.
- How Slovenians learn languages so quickly.
- Why the Balkans is so screwed up.
- Why there's much more to Romania than Dracula.
- Which Moldovan tradition saves marriages.
- What the future holds for Belarus, Ukraine, Russia.
- Why communism was a dream . . . and a nightmare.

You'll understand a side of Europe that is still mysterious and misunderstood even 20 years after the fall of the Soviet Union. Francis Tapon is an ideal guide in a book that will become a classic travel narrative.

SUMMARY

When people say that they're "going to Europe," they're usually referring to Western Europe. But what about Eastern Europe? You don’t really know Europe until you visit its mysterious eastern side.

Francis Tapon’s quest was simple: explore every country in Eastern Europe from the Gulf of Finland to the Black Sea. He saw them all in 2004 and then returned in 2008 to revisit them to see what had changed. He finally left in 2011 to share a side of Europe that few know.

Starting in the Baltic, you'll move through Belarus, Poland, Slovakia and get as far west as Slovenia before heading south into the thrilling Balkans. Then you'll head northeast through Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, and Russia. It's a 25-country adventure spanning several years!

The Hidden Europe is an entertaining travelogue that also shares practical lessons that will impact your day-to-day life. You’ll learn about today's Eastern Europe along with understanding the complex history of this fascinating region.

You’ll also see how the locals live and realize that they do some things better than most of the world. You’ll understand why smart money and groundbreaking tourists are flocking to this undiscovered territory. Best of all, you won’t have to deal with the grumpy train ticket vendors.

REVIEWS

“Francis Tapon is a modern incarnate of the spirit of Solon or Pericles: he travels to foreign countries to watch things, for the sake of contemplation. And he does it with an extremely sharp eye and lot of wit. The Hidden Europe: What Eastern Europeans Can Teach Us is not only the book of the year; it also sets the twenty-first century’s standard for travelogues.” — Flórián Farkas, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Eurasian Studies

“The Hidden Europe is a brilliant and insightful book. Francis Tapon travels for years visiting every Eastern European at least twice. What emerges is a travelogue on steroids. It’s profound, but has a light tone. You’ll learn much and laugh often.” — Amar Bhidé, Professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University

“Francis Tapon analyzes Eastern European economies, politics, and history on the one hand, and then he’ll share his linguistics woes and truly unusual escapades on the other. Somehow it all works, like a carefully (and often funny!) assembled jigsaw puzzle.” — Adrian Mihai Cioroianu, Ph.D., former Romanian Minister of Foreign Affairs

“Francis Tapon is the master of taking highly complex issues about Eastern Europe and making them easy to understand and enjoyable to read. The Hidden Europe is a competition between profound insights and devilish humor. Either way, the reader wins.” — Marco Iansiti, Harvard Business School professor

THE FISHERMAN’S SON is a middle grade fantasy novel about the adventures of Wiley O’Mara. On the back of a magical dolphin, the twelve-year-old rescues six boys trapped in an ancient city under the sea. Along the way, he fights both The Beast in the Forest and a Fire Beast guarding the city of old.

REVIEWS

PIERS ANTHONY, author of the Xanth series, the Incarnations of Immortality series, the Adept series, and so much more!
Now I have read The Fisherman's Son. This is a nice children's fantasy, grounded in realism. Even the fantastic element is realistic, in that the dolphin doesn't abridge the rules just for convenience; the right introduction has to be made. It's not all right to make the excuse "I lost the cup because of a bear.”

James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief of the “Midwest Book Review”
The Fisherman’s Son is a delightful and colorfully narrated tale which documents Marilyn Peake as a story teller of considerable narrative skill.

Rebecca Brown, Founder of “RebeccasReads”
The Fisherman’s Son is a complex tale simply written, with fascinating detail & unblinking reality borrowing from legends & sagas deep within our collective memories.

Phillip Tomasso III, “The Best Reviews”
Marilyn Peake has burst onto the scene as a promising writer with the release of her first middle grade novel, The Fisherman’s Son.

…Peake is a talented, creative and passionate storyteller. The Fisherman’s Son is a thought provoking, heart-felt fantasy novel with a twist. It lends itself to great discussion questions to be reviewed with parents, teachers, or friends. Easy to pick up and read, hard to put down.

Beverly J. Rowe, “My Shelf”
The author’s descriptions of the underwater world are exhilarating as Wiley traverses the depths and meets up with wonderful undersea creatures and the fearsome dragon-beast that guards the entrance to the village.

This book would be a great read-aloud project for the whole family.

Tracy Farnsworth, “Roundtable Reviews”
Marilyn Peake launches her debut with a fast paced offering that contains excellent imagery amidst a coming of age story.

The Fisherman’s Son will appeal to readers both young and old.
This relatively quick read is a perfect offering for those who love fantasy.

Sharon Schulz-Elsing, Contributing Editor of “Curled Up With a Good Book”
Marilyn Peake’s first fantasy novel for young readers, The Fisherman’s Son, calls to mind all the mystery and wonder of Orson Scott Card’s earlier mythological works such as Hart’s Hope or Seventh Son in its quest-style tale, and in its evocative descriptions of a place much like early nineteenth-century Ireland comes close to the lush and luminous visual treatment of John Sayles’ magical film The Secret of Roan Innish.

…this children’s debut shines with fear, wonder, triumph and loss. Few readers will be able to resist this tale of a resourceful young boy…

Jennie S. Bev
This first book by author Marilyn Peake shows her tremendous talent in story telling.

In many ways, I found The Fisherman’s Son a strong novel for children.

Cheryl McCann, “Review-Books”
The Fisherman’s Son is a children’s novel filled with fantasy, adventure and the heroic qualities of a brave, young boy. Even though it is considered a children’s book, I certainly enjoyed the rich, descriptive text of this tale. It has wonderful imagination with touches of realism; descriptions of events are rich and put you in the scene, and it has a wonderful plot. I recommend it highly and look forward to the next book.

Lost and Found: Book One of the Emi Lost & Found series

Product Description

Emi Lost & Found series - Winner of the Best Happily Ever After of 2013 - HEA Bookshelf

“There was true depth to the story and the characters that moved me and emotionally gutted me. I was so taken by Nate and Emi’s love for each other. It’s the kind of love that few have and many desire but never get to experience.” - Megan, Reading Books Like a Boss

Independent and sensitive, idealistic and hopeful, Emi Hennigan lives her life with optimism and an open mind. Between sharing a tiny Manhattan apartment with her fun-loving roommate and spending most of her free time with her heart-breaker friend, Emi’s seen enough failed relationships to know what to avoid in her quest to find her true love. Not only that, but a single moment from her past lingers in her mind, setting high expectations for every man she dates.

Emi’s best friend, artist and hopeless romantic Nate Wilson, has been her closest companion all of their adult lives. After swearing off love with Emi in a silly high school pact, Nate has been seeing other women in hopes of finding one that evokes stronger feelings than the ones he’s been harboring for Emi since he was a teen. Over the span of a year, boundaries are crossed, feelings are confessed, and their unique friendship begins to blossom into something more.

Through Nate’s eyes, an atypical romance unfolds, disrupting the comfortable safe haven their friendship has provided. With a promising future ahead of them both, fate intervenes to bring two soul mates together.

Transformed - God's Power in You (One God Radically Living in Me)

Transformed - God's Power in You (One God Radically Living in Me)

Product Description

“Transformed - God’s Power in You” (Series: One God Radically Living in Me)

Who is God
The radical transformation that takes place when God dwells within us is that we become like Him. So then, we must get know who He is in order to understand who we are becoming. Truly knowing Him, requires getting to know Him at the deepest level; His character, such as His love or holiness and His ways, the things He does; such as give us the gift of His Son that we might have our sins forgiven and be in relationship with Him. Or the gift of His Spirit and His grace that empowers us to be like Him and do what He asks us to do. He also gives each of us gifts to use for His purposes. As in any intimate relationship, receiving and returning His love is how He desires we respond to Him.

One God Three Persons
As we continue to learn about God, the Scriptures will show us there is only one God but He exists as three Persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. This aspect of God, which is far beyond our understanding is that of a triune God, which we call the Trinity – God being three very distinct Persons, yet one God, living in us and each relating to us in very significant, personal ways. The Trinity, though not mentioned by that name in Scripture, is part of what He has chosen to reveal to us so that we might know Him better and understand the way He is working in our lives. Though we cannot explain it all, we can choose, by faith, to take Him at His Word, believe it and trust that it is in relationship with God in this way that is part of His perfect plan for us.

The Holy Spirit
The Person of the Holy Spirit is part of the One, yet triune God. Part of understanding God includes understanding Who the Holy Spirit is and the role He plays in our lives as Believers. Our God dwells within us through the Holy Spirit. It is the power of the Holy Spirit that changes us, enables us to live a victorious life, become like Christ and live above life’s circumstances.


Jesus
Jesus says that He is the “radiance of the glory of God” – the exact representation of God (God Himself in the flesh), the totality of God with all His power and attributes. Jesus’ radiance is like the shining of the sun, shining God’s glory in perfection throughout creation and into our lives. His radiance also shines from within us as we become like Him. It is the glow on our face and His character within us; our “Christ-likeness” that is proclaiming Him and shows we are His.

Our Heavenly Place

The Heavenly Place is where the Christian life is lived. We live in this place through Jesus as we are guided by the Holy Spirit Who dwells within us. We get there by surrendering all to Him, having faith in His Word and trusting God is all things. It is a place where we worship Him and love Him with “all our heart and with all our soul and with all our might.” When we live in this place, we desire to bring Him glory from the very depth of our soul and it is where we receive every spiritual blessing from Heaven.


God’s Eternal Purpose For Believers

As mentioned in the preface, all of this concludes with God’s eternal purpose for Believers; which is for us to become like Christ and to bring Him glory. (In all we think, do and say.) We have no power on our own to achieve this. Simply saying “I will” and trying in our own strength cannot bring us into Christ-likeness. It has never worked for anyone in the past nor will it for anyone in the future. Without Christ and the Holy Spirit in you, it is impossible to become like Christ. It takes Divine power and a heavenly, internal guide to mold us into the image of Christ.


“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord the Spirit,”
II Corinthians 3:18
