An Act of Self-Defense

An Act of Self-Defense

Product Description

What if Congress were controlled by corrupt politicians who used their offices to enrich themselves and their cronies? What if they could not be voted out of office because they control the election process? What if there was only one way to remove them from office?
For more than 8 amazing months Amazon Reader Reviews ranked this incredible novel the #1 political thriller. Critics and readers nationwide praised its riveting premise of an unscrupulous Washington aristocracy passing legislation for the benefit of themselves and their friends . . . until confronted by a few patriots who stop them dead. An Act of Self-Defense has captured the attention of readers who have compared it with novels from America’s best writers, including Ayn Rand, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Frederick Forsyth and Michael Crichton as well as Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, Brad Thor and others.
One reader said, “I have not read a novel that handled ongoing suspense as well as Crichton's "State of Fear" until I read Lewis' "An Act of Self-Defense," pretty much in one sitting. I could not put it down . . . One is just swept up in the story …”
Another said, “Flows with skill and confidence as from a seasoned, award-winning writer. I found it to be all at once thought-provoking, eye-opening, prophetic, exciting and inspiring.”
And, “an edge-of-your-seat ride from beginning to end . . . tense moments and tears . . . unable to put it down until the end.”

When power grabbing politicians take control of Congress and write the reelection laws to effectively prevent themselves from ever being removed from office, it sends the nation into a deep economic depression. Millions are ruined, their savings destroyed, but the lobbyists, the corrupt politicians and their crony capitalist friends make billions . . . until a small group of patriots, or are they terrorists, force them to yield.

On a sultry Washington morning an attractive woman posing as a Department of Justice agent walks into their headquarters building to mail letters that appear to be from the Attorney General to 378 long-term incumbent members of Congress. She has deceived the best security system in the world to send a message to Congress and to the nation that will change everything.
The letter demands Congress pass an amendment to the Constitution that will forever prevent long-term professional politicians from controlling Congress again. Deadly force is promised if a 3 day time limit is not met.
While the enraged and frightened politicians argue over how to respond, the Attorney General takes personal control of the manhunt using Federal law enforcement against every known term limits organization. The brutality inflames the nation, however it fails to catch or stop the group calling itself the Term Limits Revolution. As the time expires and when Congress at first refuses to pass the amendment, the roller coaster, edge of your seat ride erupts with explosive action and crackling tension that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.

Interview With The Author

Q - So, what makes the Jaxon Jennings’ Thriller Mystery Series so special?


A – Jaxon’s not your typical hero. He’s flawed, and that makes him entertaining. As a reader, I want to be entertained and thrilled. I’m a fan of the Action & Adventure and Thriller genres, so it was natural for me to write in them. I’m also a lover of things that go bump in the night and I add a little creepiness just to make things interesting.

Not only will you want to keep reading late into the night, the pace and action keeping your nose in the page, but when you finally close the book, you’ll probably keep the light on as well.

“Help me…”

Q – With the main story focusing around two younger characters, is Frozen Past written for adults?

A – It’s definitely an adult book. With a Thriller, a certain amount of violence and adult material is expected, and Frozen Past definitely fits into that category. Younger readers are not the target audience of the Jaxon Jennings’ series.

Jaxon is introduced to the reader in Frozen Past, and though it is not really a prequel, he shares the spotlight with Luke and Ellie, two teenagers who find themselves thrust into a killer’s world for seemingly no reason at all. I feel the divide between the adult world and the kids’ world makes the story that much more enthralling.

Q – Should the series be read in any certain order?

A – Each book is a separate story and I wrote them to be enjoyed in any order. If you find you like to stick to a chronological timeline, I’d suggest following this sequence:

- Frozen Past
- Cache 72
- Father Figure

Dark Bayou (The Dark Trilogy Book 1)

Dark Bayou (The Dark Trilogy Book 1)

Product Description

“The Spanish moss swayed eerily in the breeze that brought with it fat rain drops that plopped onto the water, rippling the reflection of the darkening sky. That was when we saw the cabin, far off in a corner on the west bank. It was as I had seen it in my dreams—rustic long-forgotten by the world, save for whatever occupied its malevolent little frame. And whatever it was, was nothing more than a black silhouette in a creaking rocking chair on the tiny porch. As I stared at the phantom rocker, it suddenly stopped in mid rock, picked up its head and turned to me, grinning, and started rocking away, never taking its yellow eyes off of me. And there, in the humid twilight of the swamp, a bitter chill washed over me, and my spine felt like ice.”

The Ups and Downs of Being Dead

The Ups and Downs of Being Dead

Product Description

Fifty-seven year old Robert Malone is the CEO of a successful clothing store chain and married to a former model. When his doctor tells him he is dying of cancer, he refuses to go quietly. Instead of death, Robert chooses cryonics. He knows it’s a long shot. His frozen body will be stored in liquid nitrogen for the next seventy-five years, and then he’ll wake up in the future. That is, if technology develops a way to bring him back.
He’s willing to take that gamble.
What he doesn’t realize is that he won’t lie in some dreamless state all that time. His soul is very much awake, just like the others who were frozen before him. And like these souls in limbo, Robert begins a new kind of life outside his physical body.
He discovers that he can ride in the cockpit with the pilots, but he can’t turn the page of a magazine. He can sit in the oval office with the president, but he can’t prevent a child from dashing in front of a car. He doesn’t work, or eat, or sleep. He can’t smell, or taste, or touch. These obstacles make it difficult to experience love, and virtually impossible to reconcile with the living.
Over the next several decades, Robert Malone will have plenty of time to figure out The Ups and Downs of Being Dead.

Breaking Through to Fluency: How to Naturally Learn a New Language with the Right Teacher - An English as a Second / Foreign Language Guide

Breaking Through to Fluency: How to Naturally Learn a New Language with the Right Teacher - An English as a Second / Foreign Language Guide

Product Description

Updated November 2015 - New Chapter 9 for students starting from zero and Bonus section!

Breaking Through to Fluency: Learn How to Choose the Right Teacher and Maximize Your Efforts! - An English as a Second / Foreign Language Guide

This may shock you: learning another language is not easy. It takes dedication, perseverance, and a lot of effort on the part of the learner. It is in no way "fast" or "quick", but it can be done more or less efficiently.

The question most want to know is, how long will it take me to become fluent?

The truth is there are many variables, but there is a famous saying that holds true for many of them. "Smart people learn from their mistakes, wise people learn from other's mistakes."

If you'd like to learn another language wisely, and thus more efficiently, then this book is for you.

The last 10 years of my life's journey has been spent learning new languages and teaching people - over 200 in the last 6 years - to become fluent. These 200+ people were just like me: they had studied in schools, traveled abroad, etc., with fluency still eluding them.

This booklet tells my story in which it took me more than 3 years to finally have a breakthrough speaking a second language, sometimes humiliated in the process. After this discovery, I used this same method to learn a 3rd language. Next I document how my students have repeated this success. Ultimately I explain more in detail about what exactly is this method of 'natural conversation'.

Don't worry, this isn't just another book about having conversations with the natives.

Even though my book does explain that speaking to natives is important, the point is you can't just speak to any native because they won't give you the chance if you don't already speak well, which I give real examples of. The 'secret' or 'value' of this booklet is WHO to speak to: a listener, family, friends, or private teachers that LISTEN, because most "teachers" don't listen; they teach: blah, blah, blah. Who needs to "blah, blah, blah" (speak) is the student to become fluent. What I do is listen and ask questions. So yes, this booklet is a little autobiography about my trials and tribulations to come to this realization or wisdom, with solid facts of 'social proof' (my students) that have had the same success using this system, or method if you will, to become fluent more efficiently.

If you're interested to understand these issues in more detail, I'm confident you'll be satisfied with this book.

There are some special bonuses for English as a second language students!

Evan Burl and the Falling, Vol. 1-2

Evan Burl and the Falling, Vol. 1-2

Product Description

Discover #1 bestselling novel, Evan Burl and the Falling



A monster lives in all of us.

My father abandoned me when I was an infant.
My friends have turned against me.
My uncle beats me.
The most powerful men in the world want me dead.
They all have one thing in common.
They think I'm turning into a monster.

I'm starting to worry they're right.

Over a thousand years, one man unlocks sapience—the ability to transform the imagined into reality. But not everyone believes sapience is a gift because this power blurs the lines between dreaming and waking, making it impossible to divide real life from nightmare and friend from enemy.

The most powerful of these sapients rule the world, sharing little in common save their venom for each other and lurid horror for Evan Burl—a sixteen-year-old imprisoned with twelve immortal orphans in a haunted castle surrounded by the bones of a forgotten city. Evan finds a letter that orders his execution—signed by his own father—that reveals Evan's latent supernatural talents. As Evan makes use of his new abilities, he loses his grasp on the physical world and fears he might be responsible for the string of gruesome deaths that have begun to plague the orphans.

With each passing day, Evan's waking world is fading into a mist of dreams, replaced by starless nightmares that just might be real. The fates of those who remain alive rest on whether Evan can regain his ability to tell dream from reality and save his friends from the sapients who would rather the world forget that these twelve orphans ever lived.

Suddenly for Laila, it's 1969 again. She's only seventeen, and she's left her sheltered home in Long Island for college in Connecticut. Amid protests of the Vietnam War, she's tempted by the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll that rule her generation. Laila gets swept up in a deceptive love triangle with two older locals and initiated into their unethical hippie family. Too late she realizes her search to belong has led to tragedy.

Laila must now juggle the demands of her perplexed husband and her baby boomer past forcing her to make choices that endanger her survival and challenge her conscience.

She learns that the lines between right and wrong are often blurred, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.

BROKEN

BROKEN

Product Description

When I’m broken and nothing seems to make any sense, I go back to the ranch, to my beautiful Jessie. Jess…fixes me, makes me whole again.

Those were the words written in Adam's journal shortly before he died. His twin brother, Mitch, has never met Jessie, but believes she must be a very special woman to glue his brother back together time after time. Now it is up to Mitch to tell her that Adam is gone, that he will never again return to her waiting arms. He doesn't want to be the one to break her heart, but what choice does he have?

On the drive to Jessie's ranch, Mitch devises a way they can both put closure on Adam's death. Posing as Adam will give Jessie one last time with him. Mitch can give her the memories she deserves, let her hear the words Adam should have spoken to her when he had the chance. And in the process, maybe Jessie can ease some of the ache in his own heart.

It is a simple plan; give Jessie a lifetime of memories, mend his own broken heart, then leave and send word of Adam's death. But the moment Mitch arrives at the ranch, his plan begins to fall apart. Jessie is everything his brother said she was, everything Mitch could ever hope for in a woman. Now he must spend the rest of his life pretending to be Adam, or tell Jessie the truth and risk losing her forever.

Valley of the Dead (The Truth Behind Dante's Inferno)

Valley of the Dead (The Truth Behind Dante's Inferno)

Product Description

Working from Dante’s Inferno to draw out the reality behind the fantasy, author Kim Paffenroth unfolds the horrifying true events that led Dante to fictionalize the account of his lost years…

For seventeen years of his life, the exact whereabouts of the medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri are unknown to modern scholars. It is known that during this time he traveled as an exile across Europe, working on his epic poem, The Divine Comedy. In his masterpiece he describes a journey through the three realms of the afterlife. The most famous of its three volumes, Inferno, describes hell.

During his lost wanderings, Dante stumbled upon an infestation of the living dead. The unspeakable acts he witnessed —cannibalism, live burnings, evisceration, crucifixion, and dozens more—became the basis of all the horrors described in Inferno. Afraid to be labeled a madman, Dante made the terrors he experienced into a more “believable” account of an otherworldly adventure filled with demons and mythological monsters.

But at last, the real story can finally be told.

MASS MURDER (A Giorgio Salvatori Mystery Book 1)

Product Description

As a veteran New York police officer, Detective Giorgio Salvatori moved his family to a small town in Southern California to get away from the dirt and crime of a large city. But when a dead woman is found hanging by her bra strap in the supply closet of a local monastery, he suspects his easy life is about to change.

His suspicions are confirmed when another body is found on the monastery grounds, and a monk's body is found floating in the duck pond. Add to that the ghost of a young boy who committed suicide back in the 1940s who appears to be communicating a series of messages, and Salvatori has more than a murder mystery to solve.

Complicated by his own religious background and a sudden personal loss, Detective Salvatori will face more than a killer with nothing to lose.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT MASS MURDER:

Romeo's Tell (Disappearance mystery turned international thriller)

Romeo's Tell (Disappearance mystery turned international thriller)

Product Description

Why would you want to read Romeo’s Tell? What sets it apart from other mystery/thrillers? The story unfolds as a mystery on the surface of what turns out to be a much deeper, darker, and more complex conspiracy. Interesting perhaps, but many stories do that. And as with other mysteries it is possible to solve this one using inductive reasoning. But Romeo’s Tell does something a little different in that it affords the reader an additional opportunity: it literally provides the answer to the primary aspect of the mystery in the first ten percent of the book.

That is, if you are attentive and apply what is said, you can determine with no doubt “who done it” before you’ve finished reading the Amazon sample, even though the individual has not yet appeared in the story. This is not by way of guessing or surmising based on a series of obscure clues, but rather by using a very specific process that can lead to only one answer. In fairness it must be said that no one to my knowledge has actually figured it out that early in the story, but all who have read the book have understood exactly how they could have done so, quite simply, had they only thought to apply what they had read.

Similar devices are used in other aspects of Romeo’s Tell. The story does not utilize “twists” in the sense of events that come out of nowhere as a complete surprise. Rather it is crafted to employ twists that the reader will feel could have been anticipated.

In a nutshell, that’s what’s different about this book. If that doesn’t sound intriguing, you may not particularly like this book (although I doubt you’ll dislike it), since other aspects, such as character and setting descriptions, are probably on par with other books, but don’t really set this one apart.

I hope you decide to read Romeo’s Tell, or to at least check out the sample.

The Green Gourmet Organic Diet Book: Your Guide To Healthy, Natural Weight Loss

The Green Gourmet Organic Diet Book: Your Guide To Healthy, Natural Weight Loss

Product Description

Another #1 Best Seller from the author of #1 Best Selling '50 Low Carb Brown Bag Lunch Recipes' and #1 Best Selling 'The Perfect Cup of Tea Book''

A lot of people think that simply reducing the amount of food they eat will solve their weight loss problems. A person who doesn't eat at all will definitely lose weight.

But crash dieting is dangerous and ineffective.

You shed a lot of pounds, yes, but you also go through a lot of stress, both physical and mental in the process. The hunger, weakness and general feeling of lousiness can weaken the resolve of even the most ardent dieter.

And then there's the problem of keeping any lost weight off for good.

A lot of dieters simply go back to their old diet once they shed off a few pounds, especially if they have a target weight in mind. All it takes is a buffet dinner party or the smell of a cheeseburger to slowly slide back into the food that was comfortable.

This does not mean, however, that you should not avoid dieting altogether.

Healthy dieting is less about depriving yourself of food and more about eating the right kind of food - food that is healthy, filling and delicious all at the same time.

Now the problem lies in the quality of the food you eat.

A lot of the fruits, vegetables and animal products are chock-full of chemical additives and have been genetically modified. These additives and modifications make these products bigger and look better than they should be, which means more profit for the people that grow and sell them to you.

And let's face it - these kinds of food taste like paper anyway. You will know what I mean when you compare the flavor of organic beef with regular commercial beef.

You can almost taste the earthy, meaty flavor in each bite of organic beef, while plain old beef needs a lot of sauce and seasoning to produce any flavor at all.

This is where organic dieting comes in.

Here's the question: do you want to eat food that contains poisons and could give you cancer, or do you want to eat food that's healthy, safe and delicious all at the same time?

Organic foods are not new. They are the original way crops and livestock were raised, back before chemicals and additives produced bigger (and more profitable) goods.

This makes them the perfect food for the health-conscious dieter, and this is exactly what we'll be talking about in this book.

Bonus! In this revised edition you get an incredible 150+ meal ideas - beef, pork, poultry & vegetarian.

Golden Boy

Golden Boy

Product Description

Following a farewell party for two exceptional high school athletes at the local country club, seven friends end up at the nearby lake with a couple of cases of beer, an evening of goodbyes before they enter into the world of adults, college, and uncertain futures. What they find at the lake will change each of their lives in strange and inconceivable ways.

As they settle in, building a fire and opening beers, they are suddenly aware that they are not alone. An eighth person has appeared, a tall, bearded man making himself at home amongst the kids. Claiming to be a traveler, he tries to simplify his role in the universe in a manner the teens will understand.

"A bum? No, I'm not a bum. And yes, as a matter of fact I was around during the sixties. A hippie? Maybe. But that's something you children wouldn't know a lot about, a different era, one of strange and wonderful turbulence, of growth, of terrible dissension that could easily have molded the people into something good. Instead, it failed miserably. So very sad, the sixties. For a brief moment, one shining instant it was almost like the American Revolution, an entire people standing together against a repulsive injustice."

He was speaking with such conviction, such passion that the group of youngsters couldn't help but be drawn to the speech, mesmerized by this stranger.

"But unlike that earlier time, the sixties was poisoned, diseased by self-serving parasites who put their individual desires above the common cause. Those maggot vermin of the sixties made the carpetbaggers of the post-Civil War look like preachers. Not a Washington or a Jefferson in sight during those wonderful years of the sixties, the only hope for this country buried in Arlington Cemetery. But, of course, that's another story." He smiled, the first smile the group had seen cross his face, a sad, forlorn smile, the wrinkles appearing around his mournful eyes, a tiny dimple in his left cheek.

"A traveler, at least when talking about a traveler like myself, is a person who is placed somewhere for a very specific, or possibly in this case, a number of specific purposes. Sometimes I'm not sure what my purpose is at the start of a journey...but that's not important. Try to understand, I'm someone who balances things out, who brings a little sanity to some obviously insane times. You see, occasionally people on this planet, and for that matter, in other places, have been driven to self-destruct...and to take the rest of their world with them. It's during these crises that the leaders might need a strong dose of reality, a wakeup call. I'm that dose, so to speak. And that, my young friends, is as simple as I can make it."

Without revealing his motives, he offers the teens a deal, a peek into their futures. He explains that all he wants in return is their word that they never reveal the events of this night to anyone, never talk about it except with each other. The kids think he is a mixture of insanity and delusion, but Gretta, the most adventuresome of the group, takes him up on the deal, choosing to look into her future

When Gretta returns, the excitement she brings back with her convinces several of the others to try. Each time, the kids return filled with excitement and wonder.

And Rod, fervently believing in the man’s legitimacy, has no desire to see the future, wants nothing more than for the traveler to allow him a few moments in the past, a chance to save his brother from drowning.

Rod’s decisions this night have the potential for absolute joy; a possible homecoming with his long dead brother. But changing history has its price, and if he follows through with his plan, it carries the risk of terrible consequences that might affect every member of the group.
