Speed Dating with the Dead

Product Description

For fans of Stephen King, Joe Hill, and James Herbert. A paranormal conference at the most haunted hotel in the Blue Ridge Mountains goes haywire when ghost hunters accidentally stir up demons.

SPEED DATING WITH THE DEAD

When Digger Wilson brings his paranormal team Spirit Seekers International to the White Horse Inn, he is skeptical that his dead wife will keep her half of the bargain. He doesn’t believe in ghosts, and just before she died, she promised to meet him there.

But when one of the conference guests channels a mysterious presence and an Ouija board spells out a pet phrase known only to Digger and his wife, his convictions are challenged.

And when guests start to disappear, Digger and his daughter Kendra must face the circle of demons that view the hotel as their personal playground. Because soon the inn will be closing for good, angels can’t be trusted, and demons don’t like to play alone . . .

For the first time, the first four books in the international Top 100 best-selling FIFTH AVENUE series are now available in one sharply discounted boxed set!
Over 1,000 pages!

DESCRIPTIONS:

FIFTH AVENUE:

Look beneath all the power and all the wealth that represents New York City's Fifth Avenue, and you'll find greed, blood, revenge. In the international best-selling thriller "Fifth Avenue," each intermingles within a revered society that is unprepared for what's in store for it when one man finally strikes in an effort to destroy another man for murdering his wife thirty-one years ago.

Louis Ryan is that man. George Redman, his wife, two daughters and their close friends are his targets. Both men are self-made billionaires who came from nothing to stake their claim to Fifth Avenue. But when Louis Ryan hires an international assassin to literally rip the Redman family apart, a series of events that can't be stopped catapults them all through a fast-paced, hard-edged thriller in which nobody is safe.

Secrets are revealed. Sex lives are exposed. The Mafia get involved. And George's two daughters, Celina and Leana Redman, come to the forefront. More than anyone, it's they who are caught in the throes of their father's past as Louis Ryan's blind desire to kill them all takes surprising turns in his all-out effort to see them dead.


RUNNING OF THE BULLS:

In the second book in the international best-selling “Fifth Avenue Series,” a former Wall Street titan who robbed the world of billions is now out of prison. Good for him, but not for those who put him there. Now, they are dying grisly deaths by the hands of two hired assassins.

Investigating is private investigator Marty Spellman, who soon learns that all isn't what it seems as the twists pile up along with sheer number of the dead.

Spellman's life is put on the line. His family is threatened. No one is who they appear to be. Who can he trust as the bulls of Wall Street start to run as the two assassins--Vincent Spocatti and Carmen Gragera--fully ignite their killing spree?


FROM MANHATTAN WITH LOVE:

An outcast billionaire’s daughter is caught at the wrong place at the wrong time.

An international assassin questions her sanity when she falls in love with the very assassin she’s charged to assassinate.

What happens when each collide? Chaos. Murder. Love. Revenge.

And redemption.

In this taut, 35,000-word novella, both women come together for the first time in an explosive story that threatens each of their lives, particularly when one woman breaks her own rules and dares to fall in love. In “From Manhattan with Love,” she soon learns what she always feared. When it comes to real danger, there’s nothing more dangerous than love itself.


FROM MANHATTAN WITH REVENGE

Carmen Gragera is a gifted international assassin. So was her lover, Alex Williams, before he was savagely murdered by a powerful syndicate who considered each end-of-cycle.

Carmen escaped their wrath, but with Alex dead, her own wrath only grew.

Now, through unusual means, she's seeking her revenge against the syndicate for Alex's death.

Assisting her is an eccentric, Park Avenue-based seasonings heiress and a 103-year-old former psychiatrist whose contacts run deep. Also joining her is fellow assassin Vincent Spocatti, with whom Carmen has worked before, and for whom she has the utmost respect.

But is the respect mutual?

In "From Manhattan with Revenge," where there are so many twists, they eventually form a noose that whip around Carmen's neck, revenge comes at a cost higher than she ever anticipated.

Under-Heaven

Under-Heaven

Product Description

More than 80,000 Tim Greaton novels have been downloaded in the last few months. In “The Santa Shop” he showed us how a raw emotional story can bring readers to a better place. In the epic and powerful “Under-Heaven” he has done it again…times three.

Traumatized by the violent murders of his parents and himself, nine-year-old Nate wakes in a version of Purgatory. With the help of dead relatives from above and below, he struggles to find a way to move on. Meanwhile back on Earth, Nate’s sole surviving sister seems to have been imprinted with darkness because time and again she finds herself involved with violent men and dangerous situations. When mobsters follow her and her latest boyfriend down a dead end dirt road, it doesn’t seem likely that anyone will escape. The final player in this emotional opus is five-year-old Jesse who places his hope and faith in his drug-addicted father. It isn’t until his kidnapping from his Boston school that the pain really begins.

Tim Greaton’s “Under Heaven” will pull you out of your world and leave you gasping for breath in his, and the surprising culmination of this entwining story will stay with you for a lifetime. One reviewer says, “Like walking the edge of a cliff that provides a breathtaking view, this book is both scary and beautiful.” While another reviewer declares, “Tim Greaton’s fans will follow him to Hell in gasoline raincoats….”

You're invited to find out why.


A message from Tim:


Dear Reader,

By now, many of you are aware that I had a pretty horrible childhood. For me, there aren’t a lot of cheerful memories, and dredging up what few I have is like revisiting a graveyard. I was a somber kid and my childhood was something I survived not something I enjoyed. I don’t blame my parents. They loved all of their children, but they themselves came from dysfunctional homes and were no more qualified to raise six children than I am to perform brain surgery. My parents did their best but their best was a disaster. No child should ever experience what I or, worse, what the two boys in this novel endured. Unfortunately, such tragedies occur every day.

In my case, if it weren’t for a local library and the books that allowed me brief periods of escape during those dark years, I’m not sure where I would be today. It is certain, however, that I owe a great debt to the librarians and those many authors who toiled for me. If my novels can help even one similarly troubled soul find a few moments of escape, then I will have succeeded.

Thank you for considering “Under-Heaven." I’m humbled by the time you’ve already invested and am hopeful that if you do choose to join Nate and Jesse, that their emotional journeys will lead you to a brighter place in the real world.

Best Wishes Always,

Tim Greaton

About Secrets Exposed:
Her enemy is her passion, her passion is her enemy...
Lindsey Paxton was once the number one defense attorney in New York. She fought for those who were innocent, but charged. Her instincts were her lifeline, never failing her, as they guided her in her choices of who to defend. Or so she thought. Until she won a case she would forever wish to have lost. Her client, an accused rapist, kills and rapes a woman only a day after being set free. Destroyed by her role in the woman's death, Lindsey blames her father's controlling ways for what she has become, and runs from her career and life. Years later - the past becomes the present . . . Her father has cancer, and Lindsey is forced to leave her career with the Washington branch of the FBI. She finds herself facing the responsibility of running her father's law firm with the reluctant help of hotshot attorney Mark Reeves, a man who sparks her temper while also managing to tempt her heart, while setting her body on fire! With his help she finds herself fighting the emotional battles of the past, tempted to trust both him and her instincts. Now, faced with a case inherited from her father so similar to her career-ending one, she now must decide if her instincts will lead her down the path to saving an innocent man or setting free another killer. But while she fights her own battles, someone watches, wanting from the past what he had failed to get the first time . . . Lindsey.

"Hidden Instincts is definitely one of the best romantic suspense books written this year -- Romance Reviews Today.

EXCERPT:
Her elbow hit the coffee mug, and it plunged into her lap.
Lindsey jumped as the hot liquid splashed her skin and seeped into her dress. "Great! Just great." She reached for a tissue in the top desk drawer. "Figures," she mumbled grumpily. "Bad day, bad luck, bad everything."
She blotted at the moisture on the silky material for a moment and then dropped her elbows to her desk, letting her face fall into her hands. She needed a minute. It had been a long night of no sleep, her thoughts and emotions raw from her argument with her father. Sighing heavily, she yanked more napkins from the drawer and stood up. Tugging at her dress, she lifted the damp cloth away from her skin.
"Need some help?" A deep, masculine voice came from nowhere, it seemed. Lindsey jumped yet again, one hand flying to her chest.
She looked up to find Mark Reeves standing in the doorway. Her eyes went wide at the sight he made. Sexy, powerful, and far too attractive for Lindsey's comfort, he seemed to fill the room with his presence. A warm awareness danced along her nerve endings. This man got to her without even trying.
She had forgotten what it was like to have sex--until now. Mark sent vivid, not-so-pure thoughts, racing through her mind. Just being near him seemed to remind every inch of her body what she had been missing the past few years. She wasn't immune to her carnal needs. They just hadn't been stimulated.
Until now.

The Deli Maven's Cookbook

The Deli Maven's Cookbook

Product Description

When author David W. Cowles moved to Gig Harbor, Washington he was shocked to discover there wasn’t even one good Jewish deli in the entire state. Frustrated and deli deprived, Cowles researched and perfected deli recipes for home preparation. He became so proficient he taught a hands-on course in making deli food at a synagogue in Tacoma. Cowles tells his story in THE DELI MAVEN’S COOKBOOK.

THE DELI MAVEN’S COOKBOOK is not a comprehensively detailed history of that great, venerable American institution, the Jewish delicatessen. Nor is it an encyclopedia of Jewish recipes gathered from the entire diaspora. It is not a recipe book of Israeli cuisine. It is not a summary of kosher foods and dietary laws. It has no recipes for Jewish holiday foods, unless they’re served year-round in a deli. Yet it touches on all the above.

THE DELI MAVEN’S COOKBOOK is not intended to replace Jewish delicatessens, for which there are no acceptable substitutes. There’s a lot more to delis than just the food—such as the ambrosial aromas, the noisy ambience, and the camaraderie. Delis are a social institution, a way of life.

Rather, THE DELI MAVEN’S COOKBOOK is the self-help answer for those unfortunate souls stranded hundreds of miles from the nearest Jewish deli, so hungry for real deli food they want to scream. If you live in an area that doesn’t have a good deli—or perhaps none at all—fret no more. This book is the solution to your troubles.

You’ll learn how to quickly, easily, and inexpensively prepare delicious and authentic deli food at home … including pastrami; corned beef; pickled tongue; lox and Nova; matzo ball soup; kasha varnishkas; matzo brei; lox, eggs, and onions; bagels, bialys, and breads; New York style cheesecake; black & white cookies; and scores of other deli, appetizing, and bakery delights—all made from “scratch.”

As the TV pitchman says, “Wait … there’s more!” Enjoy the deli stories, deli jokes, and histories of your favorite deli foods. If Jewish delis are important to you, you owe it to yourself to get THE DELI MAVEN’S COOKBOOK. It’s a fun book to read, even if you don’t cook!

THE DELI MAVEN’S COOKBOOK is in Kindle format and available exclusively from Amazon.com.

Love Comes Later

Love Comes Later

Product Description

When newlywed Abdulla loses his wife and unborn child in a car accident, the world seems to crumble beneath his feet. Thrust back into living in the family compound, he goes through the motions—work, eat, sleep, repeat. Blaming himself for their deaths, he decides to never marry again but knows that culturally, this is not an option. Three years later, he’s faced with an arranged marriage to his cousin Hind, whom he hasn’t seen in years. Hard-pressed to find a way out, he consents to a yearlong engagement and tries to find a way to end it. What he doesn’t count on, and is unaware of, is Hind’s own reluctance to marry.

Longing for independence, she insists on being allowed to complete a master’s degree in England, a condition Abdulla readily accepts. When she finds an unlikely friend in Indian-American Sangita, she starts down a path that will ultimately place her future in jeopardy.

The greatest success of Rajakumar’s novel is the emotional journey the reader takes via her rich characters. One cannot help but feel the pressure of the culturally mandated marriage set before Hind and Abdulla. He’s not a real Muslim man if he remains single, and she will never be allowed freedoms without the bondage of a potentially loveless marriage. It’s an impossible situation dictated by a culture that they still deeply respect.

Rajakumar pulls back the veil on life in Qatar to reveal a glimpse of Muslim life rarely seen by Westerners.

"...a deliciously tangled plot and insight into life on the Persian Gulf."

As a child, Stephen worked out his plans for the "inevitable" zombie apocalypse with his friend Jake. Now he is all grown up with a real job and real responsibilities. His spare time is now taken up online - surfing, blogging and facebooking.

Then the mysterious sickness hits San Antonio and people start dying by the thousands. He stops by his neighborhood bar after a tragically brief day at the office. A little flirting with the hot bartender, then home alone to blog.

As he begins to realize from the news and Internet traffic that the dead are rising, his childhood preparations come rushing to the forefront of his mind. And the number one rule was always, "Chivalry will get you killed!"

His conviction to this rule is immediately tested when he gets a call for help from the bartender. Chivalry - and hormones - wins out as he sets out to rescue the object of his desires. Before the electric grid goes down, he receives an internet plea for help from his childhood friend Jake in Houston. He again decides that his duty is most important in this situation.

He sets off on the 200 mile journey where the zombies may not be the worst he has to contend with. His preparation didn't include dealing with human monsters.

Yseult: A Tale of Tragedy in the Age of King Arthur (The Pendragon Chronicles Book 1)

Yseult: A Tale of Tragedy in the Age of King Arthur (The Pendragon Chronicles Book 1)

Product Description

"Gripping historical fantasy!" "Simply epic!"



For the price of a truce, Yseult is sent to a world where magic is dying - to marry the father of the man she loves.

5th Century Britain is a land on the brink of war. Abandoned by the once great Roman Empire, it must see to its own defense. Under the leadership of Arthur, the kings of Britain fight to push back the Saxon hordes and save what is left of civilization.

The Pendragon Chronicles tell the Arthurian legends re-imagined through what little is known of the historical details of the era. Here is no chivalric society of knights and ladies; here, the battles are real and gritty, love is mixed with lust, and it is not a given that the good survive.

This epic retelling of the tragic legend of Yseult and Drystan plays out against the backdrop of a violent world threatening to descend into the Dark Ages. As a member of the Old Race of Ireland, Yseult could act as a bridge between the old age and the new - but will the price be too high?

What readers are saying about The Pendragon Chronicles:

- "This book is simply Epic! Not only for the length of it (came as a shock after reading novellas for a while!) but also for the amount of history, information and detail given." Review of Yseult by Marissa.

- "For those who like a strong historical component in their historical fiction. Yseult is fully realized as an Irish princess, with a component of "powers" totally appropriate to the myths of Ireland and Arthurian tales. This story made even some of the less likely parts of the tale seem not just plausible, but inevitable." Review by Cary.

- "The book is much more than a love story. It is truly an epic, exploring the conflicts between paganism and Christianity, political maneuvering between the various kings of Britain and Ireland, the wars between themselves and with the Saxons, and a lot more. It reminded me a bit of The Mists of Avalon, although Yseult was much more fun to read." Review by Kriti Godey.

A #1 bestseller in Arthurian fantasy and an international success, with translations into German, Italian and Dutch.


Rod of the Wicked (Church Boyz Book 1)

Rod of the Wicked (Church Boyz Book 1)

Product Description

Imagine sharing the spotlight with a ruthless blackmailer, whose only intention, is to take all of which you’ve worked hard to achieve – your wealth, your fame, and your church of seven thousand members. For Pastor Leroy Paxton of Mount Moriah Baptist Church, this is no imagination. Five years ago, he committed a toxic sin and almost lost his life trying to cover it up. He now comes face to face with his past, which haunts him from the pulpit to his bedroom. And the only way out of this nightmare is to make a decision that could cost him everything.

Then imagine being mentored by one of the most revered men, Abraham Winder, whose stance on accountability and sexual purity is taught rigorously within the Mount Moriah mentoring program, only to discover your mentor is not what you expect. This is the reality for Dominic Housten, one of Abraham’s closet and trusted protégés, who accidentally stumbles upon a scene that left him frozen in disbelief. As Dominic struggles with betrayal, he confides in the pastor’s daughter – the only woman he’d secretly loved for years. The only problem with that is the pastor’s daughter is married to Phillip Benjamin, a deacon of the church and an extremely jealous man, who suspects Dominic’s intention runs deeper than just a casual friendship.

The intertwined lives of these four men show that the righteous are not perfect, and at times, are tempted to forsake the ways of God. As each of these men battle to regain their focus, they will come to realize that the consequences of their sins are far greater than they’d anticipated – just one stupid mistake could produce a lifetime of hell! Bestseller in Urban Christian Suspense Series.

Navigating Life's Roadways: Stories of Insight from My Odyssey and Inspiration for Your Journey

Navigating Life's Roadways: Stories of Insight from My Odyssey and Inspiration for Your Journey

Product Description

How do we best maneuver life’s roads, paths or journeys; so often paved with the travails and triumphs of a barrage of daily evolving circumstances? Do we always know the directions or map to our true north? Is there an IPS (Internal Positioning System) to guide us? In Navigating Life’s Roadways, Deborah L. Parker takes you on a very personal voyage while engaging you with creatively written metaphors of her life’s map of twisting roads, paths, and journeys. Ride along as Parker insightfully and inspirationally navigates the elements of family, relationships, career, faith, health or fun. Learn, cry and laugh with her, as you find yourself exploring the lessons of your own destinations while identifying with her heartfelt narratives. Meet the core people who’ve journeyed with Parker or put up roadblocks. Transit her phases of humbly growing up in a Civil Rights era rural Virginia town, then launching out on pursuits as an army officer, corporate manager and entrepreneur in the story Belief Boulevard, while you experience her setbacks and eventual arrival back to her true north spirit in Valley View. Sharing the warmth and variety of stories found in the renowned Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Parker’s artful accounts of her treks through mountains and pits feeds the reader’s spirit (even throwing in the chicken). This book will guide and encourage you on your smooth or rough roadways ahead. Parker's chronicles begin when she was born to a teenage unwed mother (who later married and was then abandoned with her three other children, going on to raise them in an extended family environment), sharing their push through adversity on Determination Drive. Gracefully she stays true to the old school direction of African American traditions, gleaned from her grandparents, uncles and aunts—also pivotal role models for her. Framed with other memories from her childhood that she finds in scenes from Homer’s Odyssey, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland or the Lion King, Parker wonderfully connects these to take-a-ways for the reader. Candidly expressing the flaws but focus of herself and those who ordered or halted her steps, Parker beautifully covers the heart and healing nature of family or friendships in Love Loop. Infusing the wisdom of scripture, spiritual quotes and cultural proverbs into her IPS (Internal Positioning System), Parker grounds her stories. You read the sage advice from her Baptist upbringing along with her respect for the spiritual lessons of Buddha as well as the growth language of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Sprinkling humor and the rhythms of R&B throughout this anthology, she uses this inspirational blend as rest stops from life’s turmoils. Facing the unsettling of her health’s foundation, Parker has wandered on Pity Party Path. Breaking down on the road from her exposed faults, Parker heeds this mayday message and gets back on track as she relates in Vision Venue. From the wooded back-road home of her youth, which had no indoor plumbing, Parker cements life survival tips from the disciplined chores she performed there in Commitment Court. Writing the primary parts of this work during the year of grieving the loss of her mother, Parker gathers strength from their joint sojourns and the guiding spirit of this bond of life in Farewell and Forward Foothills. The devastating emotions so many go through from this type of loss are warmly and vividly portrayed in her stories. In Parker’s ‘helluva travels’ from America to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and Africa, she invites you on an educational route of self-discovery in search of more rooting along with meaning for her odyssey’s realities. Parker explores the importance of pausing to reflect at Pondering Pond then going full throttle at Goal Gateway. The varied metaphors found in the relatable stories of this book will center and inspire you for your sojourns ahead, in finding your true north.

False Confessions of a True Hollywood Screenwriter

False Confessions of a True Hollywood Screenwriter

Product Description

In Hollywood, there are no rules and they’re strictly enforced.
That’s one of the things Liz Bradbury learns during her eight long, torturous years in LA working as a professional screenwriter. You can’t get an agent until you don’t need one. You can’t sell a script until you’ve already sold one. Paradoxes of the movie business are driving her mad.
Liz lives with Christopher, her ideal man and perfect marriage material. But every time they head down the aisle, catastrophes ranging from a wedding mansion explosion to a plane crash halt the wedding march. Christopher is certain the fates are telling them to forget about making it legal. Liz isn’t so sure.
It’s not until Liz takes on Hollywood — in an estrogen-fueled rampage including kidnapping her lying, scheming agents and a movie star, a hostage standoff, a nationally televised car chase, and a siege by SWAT teams — that she realizes only in Hell-A could crime run amuck have such a deliriously happy Hollywood ending.
False Confessions of a True Hollywood Screenwriter is an action-adventure comedy about taking fate hostage, shaping your own destiny and never giving up.
Never.


Why Your Organization's Culture Matters: Shaping the Unseen Force That Will Transform Performance

Why Your Organization's Culture Matters: Shaping the Unseen Force That Will Transform Performance

Product Description

This is the eBook version of the printed book.
The contribution of culture to organizational performance is substantial and quantifiable. In The Culture Cycle, renowned thought leader James Heskett demonstrates how an effective culture can account for up to half of the differential in performance between organizations in the same business.  A follow-up to the classic Corporate Culture and Performance (coauthored with John Kotter), this book explains how culture evolves, can be shaped and sustained, and can promote both survival and innovation in tough times.
Drawing on decades of field research and dozens of case studies, Heskett introduces a powerful conceptual framework for managing culture and shows it at work in a real-world setting. Heskett's "culture cycle" identifies policies, practices, and behaviors that are crucial to moving cultures forward and demonstrates how to calculate the economic value of culture through the "Four Rs": referrals, retention, returns to labor, and relationships with customers. 
Heskett's insights will be invaluable to leaders, professionals, and consultants in HR, productivity, training, and operations--and for anyone seeking to optimize organizational performance.
