Murder by Misrule: A Francis Bacon Mystery (The Francis Bacon Mystery Series Book 1)

Francis Bacon is charged with investigating the murder of a fellow barrister at Gray’s Inn. He recruits his unwanted protégé Thomas Clarady to do the tiresome legwork. The son of a privateer, Clarady will do anything to climb the Elizabethan social ladder. Bacon’s powerful uncle Lord Burghley suspects Catholic conspirators of the crime, but other motives quickly emerge. Rival barristers contend for the murdered man’s legal honors and wealthy clients. Highly-placed courtiers are implicated as the investigation reaches from Whitehall to the London streets. Bacon does the thinking; Clarady does the fencing. Everyone has something up his pinked and padded sleeve. Even the brilliant Francis Bacon is at a loss — and in danger — until he sees through the disguises of the season of Misrule.

MAGPIE

Maggie is independent, confident and content—almost. Her moniker, “Magpie,” aptly describes her tendency to collect things; chiefly, haunting memories of her late husband and son, keeping friends, family and lovers at bay. Tired of wearing the label of “widow” and ravenous for physical connection, Maggie submits her online profile…and waits. But dating these days is very different and Maggie must learn to navigate online dating sites and modern “same-day” propositions. Soon, she meets Daniel online, but he lives in Atlanta and she, in Denver. Seductive “sexting” keeps the flame burning red-hot; steamy videos and erotic, late night calls add even more fuel to an already scorching fire. Amidst family crisis, a fulfilling career and inquisitive friends, the virtual lovers must determine if there is a chance for real love, not just technologically driven romps. Introspective, romantic and refreshingly “real life,” Magpie is deeply affecting; funny, inspiring and honest, this book captures what life is really like for a woman in transition.

1% Fitness: Move Better. Train Smarter. Live Longer.

With everything else we seek efficiency. Whether preparing food, surfing the internet, or commuting to work, we’re looking for the smallest investment in time for the greatest return. Many times this means paying a little up front; which depending on our circumstances, the majority is obliged to do.

Well what if I told you the same efficiency was possible with exercise?

That all of the fat loss, muscle gain, cardiovascular and metabolic improvements, and reduction in disease risk and mortality can be achieved in far less time.

If you’re already exercising this means more free time, so it’s an easy decision. If you’re not already exercising, it’s just as easy; as once you understand that the investment in time is less than 108 minutes (1%) per week, it’s a no brainer.
