The Alaskan Bootlegger’s Bible: Makin’ Beer, Wine, Liqueurs and Moonshine Whiskey
The author dusts off over thirty years of experience brewing beer and making wine to tell you how it’s done. He not only tells how to make darned near any kind of alcoholic beverage you can imagine, he also tells you how to make the equipment to do it with.
Ever wondered how a still is made? There are eight types illustrated in this book, based on historical moonshiner designs. The ingenuity that went into making moonshine illicitly is fascinating and sometimes hilarious. Though it’s illegal to build or possess a still, the illustrations are so complete, you could easily do it! Some are built with components found in most home kitchens.
From homebrew beer, homemade wine and liqueur recipes, to stills, homemade cappers, kegs, scales and even a malt factory from an old freezer, it’s all here!
Gift or curse? As the lone survivor of a school bombing, she’s hid from the press for twenty years. Her new job as a photographer in the rural town of Bend, PA offers her another safe haven from bold reporters.

The wrong answer could get one, or both of them killed.
Strimko is a logic number puzzle invented by The Grabarchuk Family in 2008. It is based on the idea of Latin squares described by a Swiss mathematician and physicist Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) in the 18th century.
All Strimko puzzles are solvable with a pure logic, no special knowledge is required. Strimko uses only three basic elements: rows, columns, and streams. All elements have equal numbers of cells, and the goal is to make each row, column, and stream containing the whole set of specified numbers. Cells in the grid are organized into several streams of equal length, which often run diagonally and even branching. Such mechanics creates entangled patterns resulting in interesting challenges and unusual logic.
This book contains a specially designed collection of 150 easy-to-master puzzles with 4 x 4 through 7 x 7 grid sizes.

A new lease on life….After a brush with death, Jackie Parker has big plans to lie low for a while. The best laid plans didn’t check in with her stressful job as part of Damaged Goods property management—or her drama queen mother.
When one of their clients is found brutally murdered, and a recently evicted tenant is a suspect, Jackie vows to Luke and Logan that this time she’ll stay out of the fray. After all, she’s not a detective and they have more than enough on their plate. A rogue RV, drug dealers, furies, snakes and monkeys, oh my!
Certified Process Server Jackie Parker could do a case study in bizarre human behavior. Like the time the Damaged Goods property management team found a man fermenting his own fecal matter to get high. Or the angry downstairs tenant who threatened to spit on her. And that was just one building in the Miami art’s district.
Returning to the scene of the crime a year later at the request of the landlord, Jackie believes she’s ready for anything. Since the Dark Prince left the team, she and Luke have gone through an amicable divorce and maybe just this one time she can manage to not land face first in something foul. But what they find in the vacated apartment is far worse than on their earlier visit and Jackie’s situation is about to get a whole lot messier.
When reporter Rebecca Connolly gets a tip that suspected murderer Roddie Drummond will be returning to the island of Stoirm, she smells a story. Though never convicted in the death of his girlfriend Mhairi fifteen years earlier, Drummond is still guilty in the eyes of many islanders, and his return for his mother’s funeral is sure to stir up old resentments, hatreds, possibly even violence. Rebecca has another reason for going to Stoirm. Her own father came from there, but he never went back, and he always refused to speak of it or say what drove him away.
Defying her editor, Rebecca joins forces with local photographer Chazz Wymark to dig into the mystery surrounding Mhairi’s death and her unexplained last words, “Thunder Bay”—the secluded spot on the west coast of the island where, according to local lore, the souls of the dead set off into the afterlife.
