If You Will Lead: Enduring Wisdom for 21st-Century Leaders

Product Description

If You Will Lead: Enduring Wisdom for 21st-Century Leaders provides readers with guidance for any sort of leadership journey. Whether you are a seasoned executive or just starting your first leadership role, this book will help you grow as a leader. Doug Moran starts by posing four critical questions for every reader to consider:
1. Who am I?
2. What do I want?
3. How can I get others to make their own choice to follow me?
4. How can I earn and retain the privilege to lead?
If You Will Lead helps each reader discover his or her own answers to these pivotal questions.

Moran has taken Rudyard Kipling’s classic poem "If--" and created a leadership framework out of it that comprises sixteen eternal and essential leadership attributes. He draws on noteworthy historical events to illustrate how great leaders like Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, and others applied these leadership attributes to achieve extraordinary results.

If You Will Lead uses the power of storytelling to teach its leadership lessons. It combines bigger-than-life examples with everyday stories to help leaders apply its lessons to their own leadership challenges, whatever they may be. It's a practical guide that offers numerous resources and tools to help readers hone their skills and achieve their full potential.

Horses Of The Sun (The Outback Riders Book 1)

Horses Of The Sun (The Outback Riders Book 1)

Product Description

Filled with outback Aussie humour, the teens of Sunhaven Downs face everything life throws at them, overcoming tragedy, drought, a very annoying cousin, and really, really bad days, as they dream of one day competing for Australia on their horses.

Growing up in remote outback Queensland is filled with challenges, but the teens of Sunhaven Downs manage to overcome everything thrown at them and keep on riding, loving and laughing. In this introductory book to the series, Dane, Lani, and Matthew Winter's lives centre around their horses on their family's drought stricken cattle station, Sunhaven Downs. When their city cousin, Amy King, is left there by her parents for a year and declares that she hates horses, they know that their lives are ruined. What they don't know is that Amy has a secret, a secret she is desperate to keep from her outback family. Her secret will ultimately save their lives, but not all of them, on the wild night that the drought breaks and the legendary Min Min lights emerge from the land to help. The book builds to a galloping climax of clashing events as the storms close in around Sunhaven and lives are held in the balance in the remote and untamed outback of Australia.

Saddle up and come along for the exciting ride of The Outback Riders in Book 2, Horses Of The Light, and Book 3, Horses Of The Fire, as they cope with everything from desperate criminals, wildfires and destructive families to the world’s favourite boy band, finding viral video fame and falling in love. Through it all, they work towards their dream of competing for Australia in their chosen sports: eventing, show jumping, polocrosse, reining and cutting, while the mysterious Min Min lights hover in the background, ready to lend their magic.

The author, Leanne Owens, is an English teacher who has been writing for horse magazines for over three decades and has also written and reported for Horse Talk TV. Having lived in the outback for many years, and won over thirty national titles and state titles with her horses, Leanne is well qualified to write about horse addicted teens growing up in the outback.

Note: this is the U.S. English version and the Australian English has been changed to American English, though there will still be some colloquialisms that are Australian.

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.”

Praise for My Twisted Drink: A Vampire Romance


"Original characters, some naughty encounters and a whole new meaning to the term 'drink' make this adult tale certainly worth reading...." - D. C. Wiggs


Other 5 out of 5 star reviews...

"I really enjoyed the sarcastic wit of Miss Charlotte and her complicated life. Nathan adds a lot of humor, while Alexander keeps the reader guessing..." C. Anderson


"I like this book a lot, for me it took a new look at the vampire genre and had enough twists to keep me reading. A definite must read!" - Alaskan


Overview of My Twisted Drink: A Vampire Romance

In this futuristic society, Vampires exist alongside humans without fear. Charlotte is one such human who has become renowned for her skill as an exceptional drink for vampires in an elitist club atmosphere where drinking blood and sensual pleasure is the norm.

When Charlotte's best friend and co-worker, Charisse, drags her to a local mansion to interview as a "personal drink" to a local vampire, Charlotte isn't happy about it. Nor is she happy when she's selected by Alexander, the vampire who had actually refused her offer of a drink in her club only recently.

Charlotte moves into Alexander's mansion and meets Nathan, his servant, who is obviously more than he appears to be at first glance. Is he more than human? Both Alexander and Nathan are handsome and she starts to learn more about their world than ever before.

Nathan is clearly hiding something. His abilities are definitely not human and maybe that's part of his appeal. Charlotte meets more vampires and other people who exist in this twilight world. She learns more about herself, how she relates to others and the uncanny power she holds over the two males who co-habit the mansion with her. Intrigue, love, power plays, suspense, fear and seduction; all of these play out in various scenarios during Charlotte's "relationship" with her new guardian and his servant...but where will it lead to in the end? Only time will tell.


More praise...

5 out of 5 stars

"Miss Charlotte rivals Anita Blake, without the darkness of character. Alexander, love him, then hate him, pulls on all the strings... A must read for any Vamp Fan!!" - Gina J Weir

For Fukui's Sake: Two years in rural Japan

For Fukui's Sake: Two years in rural Japan

Product Description

Far from the high-tech, high-rise of the super-cities, there lies another Japan.

A Japan where snakes slither down school corridors, where bears prowl dark forests and where Westerners are still regarded as curious creatures. Welcome to the world of the inaka – the Japanese countryside.

Unhappily employed in the UK, Sam Baldwin decides to make a big change. Saying sayonara to laboratory life, he takes a job as an English teacher in a small, rural Japanese town that no one – the Japanese included – has ever heard of.

Arriving in Fukui, where there’s ‘little reason to linger’ according to the guidebook, at first he wonders why he left England. But as he slowly settles in to his unfamiliar new home, Sam befriends a colourful cast of locals and begins to discover the secrets of this little known region.

Helped by headmasters, housewives and Himalayan mountain climbers, he immerses himself in a Japan still clutching its pastoral past and uncovers a landscape of lonely lakes, rice fields and lush mountain forests. Joining a master drummer’s taiko class, skiing over paddies and learning how to sharpen samurai swords, along the way Sam encounters farmers, fishermen and foreigners behaving badly.

Exploring Japan’s culture and cuisine, as well as its wild places and wildlife, For Fukui’s Sake is an adventurous, humorous and sometimes poignant insight into the frustrations and fascinations that face an outsider living in small town, backcountry Japan.

One Thread Pulled: The Dance With Mr. Darcy

One Thread Pulled: The Dance With Mr. Darcy

Product Description

When the wealthy and handsome Fitzwilliam Darcy encounters the beautiful and lively Elizabeth Bennet at a small country ball, he loudly refuses to dance with her, declaring her to be merely tolerable. Fortunately for Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth has walked away and does not overhear his insult, thus snagging the thread that would have sealed her prejudice against the prideful stranger. Unexpectedly, circumstances thrust Elizabeth into the same household as Mr. Darcy, and her proximity unwittingly proves tempting, as her tantalizing wit and playfulness evoke desires that threaten to unravel his resolve against her. In this delightful re-imagining of Jane Austen's beloved classic, Pride and Prejudice, the players are the same, but the rules have changed as the dance between Darcy and Lizzy unfolds.

Book #1 in the One Thread Pulled series. Book #2, "Constant as the Sun" is targeted for release early in 2013.

This is book 1 in a series.

Product Description

The Lives of Rachel is a prequel to The Books of Rachel.

This richly detailed novel of family, of tradition, and of faith, sweeps across a thousand years to chronicle the lives of five women -- each named Rachel and each a rare human spirit.

In every generation of this proud and ancient Jewish family there is only one Rachel, the firstborn daughter. But the name is only part of Rachel's legacy. Each bearer of the name adds, in her own way, to the legend of strength and courage that is her birthright.

There is Rachel of Judea, who defies a half-mad and lustful king to save her husband's life. Rachel of Rome, who is sold into slavery, but rises up to take just revenge on her cruel and corrupt master. Rachel of Byzantius is a miraculous healer who risks death to stop the spreading horror of the plague. A Rachel plays a crucial part in the destiny of Arthurian England; another cleverly escapes a Rhineland pogrom.

To Kill the Duke

To Kill the Duke

Product Description

It was the 1950's. The white-hot Cold War was raging between The USA and The USSR. And, in Joseph Stalin's mind, nothing would be quite as hot as assassinating the ultimate symbol of Western machismo culture - the actor John Wayne. Thus, the elite Russian spy squad of Zavert, Boris Gila, Alexei Aleksandra and Ivan Viznapu start on a dangerous (and hysterical) mission that brings them in contact with gangsters Mickey Cohen and Johnny Stompanato, the billionaire Howard Hughes, the producer/director Dick Powell, the actress Susan Hayward, countless others and the big man himself - John Wayne.

What transpires is as zany as John Wayne playing a role that was written for Marlon Brando... whoops! That really happened, and the result was 'The Conqueror," which plays a prominent role in to kill the duke, Sam Moffie's fifth novel. Brilliantly satiric, the book also captures political duplicity and amorality, which makes it all too relevant to today's world. The Cold War, more than ready for prime time satire, lets Moffie keep the heat on the establishment and most of all, those in authority.

I remember very well the time my Mom and Dad first made me decide on which toys to get rid of to clear a space in the clutter of my little shared bedroom, and when I first got in trouble for simply hiding all my toys under the bunk bed instead of cleaning up 'properly'! Even as adults, most of us still loathe having to take the time to clean and organize.

However, if you want to have a clean home to warmly invite guests into, and to stop losing various items to the gremlins in your walls, then you have to start doing more than just throwing everything into a corner and forgetting about it until Spring Cleaning time!

Follow the various tips and tricks discussed in this book, to start making the maximum use of the storage space your home can provide, and to start storing all your items appropriately, neatly and safely. I'll be honest - it's not going to be done in a day, but following my strategies and going through your home room by room, you'll soon have a home that can comfortably fit everything you need (and more!) whilst remaining entirely clutter-free.

Then all you have to do is maintain it, and that is a much easier and faster job with your new storage solutions in place!

Sea Captain's Promise

Sea Captain's Promise

Product Description

If you’ve lost yourself, you need someone else to show you the way home.

When Thomas Quinn is eight-years-old, he asks a promise of an Irish sea captain: "If ever I should become like me father will you dunk me under the water 'til I cannot breathe? Will you, sir, please?"

The captain agrees.

Ten years later, Thomas is a womanizer, a thief and a drunk, who remembers a promise, but doesn't know what it was about or who it was with.

While flirting with a young woman in the Galway marketplace, he is accosted by her grandfather. The man is gruff with him and knows too much about him.
Afraid, Thomas runs and goes on a drunken binge with his friend, Farrell. Late that night, they are knocked out by someone wielding a club.

When Thomas wakes, he finds himself tied to a ship’s yardarm by his ankles and dunked over and over into Galway Bay until he cannot breathe. Only then does he learn the young woman’s grandfather is the captain of the ship.

Kidnapped and taken out to sea, Thomas fights with the sailors, steals ale from the hold, runs from a battle with a female pirate and falls in love with the captain’s granddaughter.

But it isn't until he finds out who he really is that Thomas’ restless soul finds its way home.

The Book of Love: Relationships and Dating

significant other.

  • Dating tips (for those of you who are dating).

    different, but it's actually very similar).
  • Relationship advice (for those of you who are currently in a
    relationship).

"Married or single, you're gonna love this book! Lots of LOL moments..." (review)

Introduction:

Why is it that so many relationships nowadays seem so complicated? The reason is actually very simple: it comes down to different levels of commitment.


Years ago, when people dated, they dated to find a person they would like to marry. Dating was not taken lightly. When you were on a date, you were seeing if the other person was a good fit for you as a potential future husband or wife. Everyone was really more on the same page when it came to dating, because there were only a couple of pages. Now there is a whole book, and it's hard to figure out what page your date is on. Here are the different levels of commitment in no particular order:

Chapter One - Just Having Fun!

Chapter Two - Want A Girlfriend/Boyfriend.

Chapter Three - Want A Serious Girlfriend/Boyfriend, No Marriage!

Chapter Four - Want A Hook Up I Can Call My Girlfriend/Boyfriend, Only When I Want To.

Chapter Five - Want To Keep You On The Backburner, Just In Case Nothing Else Works Out.

Chapter Six - Commitment Phobia!

Chapter Seven - Dating A Person Who Doesn't Want To Commit, But I'm Sure They'll Change Their Mind.

Chapter Eight - Want To Know Marriage Is In The Future.

Chapter Nine - Looking To Get Married (For Some The Book Ends After Marriage).

Chapter Ten - Looking To Get Divorced!

Chapter Eleven - Dating Someone Much Younger Because They're Hot!

The problem with this is that men and women are almost always in different chapters. I see a lot of women in chapter seven dating men who are in and around chapter four to chapter six.

Are you guilty of dating someone who is not a good match for you?

Let's just be clear, if you are looking for a long-term relationship with your significant other and they're not ready to commit, you can't make them, nor do you want to! If you have been dating for a while (several months or a year), if they are ready to commit to you long-term, you will have no doubt in your mind. Girls have a hard time with this concept, but ask any guy you know, your man will let you know if he wants to get serious with you. They will not let you slip away if they think you're the one for them.

On the other hand, if you have been dating for a while and your boyfriend or girlfriend's Facebook status is still single or blank, and they don't like you to go to parties with them, or they tell you they just want to date for like ten years, leave! The chances of them changing their mind are about as good as you winning the lottery. If they do change their mind and you're gone, they will come looking for you.

*Tip: Stop wasting valuable time dating people who are not a good match for you because you think they are a good catch.

If they don't want to be caught, it is kind of a moot point isn't it?

Ghost of a Smile. Memories from a Medium's Life

Ghost of a Smile.       Memories from a Medium's Life

Product Description

'Ghost of a Smile' is the first part of Fiona Roberts' own, unique story. The trilogy is entitled 'Memories from a Medium's Life'.
This short book, Ghost of a Smile, is the author's first attempt to answer the many questions, frequently asked, about her early development as a Medium, and about her less than happy, or normal, childhood. It is not an autobiography. The title says it all: 'Memories from a Medium's Life'. It is a book to bring you comfort, and provide some of the answers to the questions we all have about life after death.
The book reaches no natural conclusion as Fiona Roberts is still living and working, and has written two other, longer books about aspects of her life, and psychic and paranormal matters.
During a childhood dominated by a sometimes violent father, whose unpredictable mood swings were fuelled by alcohol, Fiona Roberts took comfort from the knowledge that the Spirit World was watching. She knew. She could see 'them'.
Her first encounter with a spirit person came at the age of four, when a 'woman in black' appeared in front of her.
This book will bring comfort to those who would like to believe that there is no death, and that they will one day be reunited with their loved ones - human or animal.
"There has never been a time in my life when I did not know that there is a life after death, and indeed a life before life. I grew up knowing that - no one had to tell me.
And I grew up knowing that it is possible for those who now live on in the Spirit World to contact us here in the material world.
I cherish the contact that I have had, throughout my life, with 'the other side'."
