The Tycoon: The King Family Book One


The cruel and beautiful man who ruined my life has everything he wants—everything except me.

Five years ago, Clayton Rorick loved me. Or so I thought. Turned out he only wanted to get his hands on my daddy’s company. Heartbroken, I ran away with nothing but the clothes on my back. Like a twisted Cinderella. When my father dies, leaving my sisters in a desperate situation, it’s up to me to help them.

I’ll have to beg the man who broke my heart to save us.

But Clayton hasn’t forgotten me and what he wants in exchange for his help is…my body, my heart and my soul.

The Flash Book: How to fall hopelessly in love with your flash, and finally start taking the type of images you bought it for in the first place


Scott Kelby, the world’s #1 best-selling photography technique books author, is here with a new concept in photography and flash books—one that’s designed from the ground up to get you straight to whatever it is you need to do with a flash right now, get your answer fast, and get you back to shooting with your flash.

Thanks to inexpensive flashes that are compatible with all major camera manufacturers (such as Yongnuo), owning and using a flash is now easily within reach for nearly all shooters, whether you’re a hobbyist or aspriring professional. Once you own a flash, though, you’ll have a lot of questions about how to get it to create the light you need—questions about camera and flash settings, questions about direction, quality, and quantity of light. And in addition to knowing how to use your flash, you need to know which modifiers and triggers you might need, and you need to learn use them quickly.

That’s why this book was created: to quickly get you to the technique, the setting, or exactly the right thing you need to do right now to improve your work.

Here’s how it works: When you need to know how to do a particular thing, you turn to the chapter where it would be found, find the thing you need to do (it’s easy, each page covers just one single topic), and Scott tells you exactly how to do it just like he was sitting there beside you, using the same casual style as if he were telling a friend. That way, you get back to shooting fast.

This isn’t a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed multi-step concepts. This is a book on which button to click, which setting to use, and exactly how and when to use it, so you’re never “stuck” wondering how to use your flash again. This will be your “go to” book that sits within reach any time you’re shooting with flash, and you are going to love having this type of help right at your fingertips.

All Or Nothing (The Coxwells Book 4)


Some people will do anything for true love — even if they have to fake it.

Jen Maitland had no use for handsome guys with easy charm — until she met Zach. He’s the perfect fake date to end her mother’s matchmaking scheme before it starts. Besides, he’d probably just use her and leave her like her ex-fiancé did. At least that’s what Jen tells herself. The only problem is that Zach isn’t as predictable as he appears…

Zach Coxwell hates commitment, but loves a challenge. Like the pretty bar waitress who turned him down flat for a date — only to invite him to her family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Zach knows he can make Jen smile — and he’s betting that he can unravel her mysteries — even if he has to do it over candied yams.

A tofu turkey, a sister who threatens to have Zach’s love-child, the untimely appearance of a knitted avocado — and Zach’s discovery of her real motive — combine to turn Thanksgiving dinner into Jen’s worst nightmare. Zach, on the other hand, has the time of his life. And when he makes Jen smile, he finally finds a commitment he’s willing to make…but persuading Jen to believe him will take everything he’s got.

This edition also includes an excerpt from SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE.Some people will do anything for true love — even if they have to fake it.

Ender’s Game (The Ender Quartet series Book 1)


Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards

In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race’s next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew “Ender” Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn’t make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.

Ender’s skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister.

Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender’s two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.

Ender’s Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

The Authorized Ender Companion: A complete and in-depth encyclopedia of all the persons, places, things, and events in Orson Scott Card’s Ender Universe.

In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race’s next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew “Ender” Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn’t make the cut–young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.

Ender’s skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Back on Earth, Peter and Valentine forge an intellectual alliance and attempt to change the course of history.

This futuristic tale involves aliens, political discourse on the Internet, sophisticated computer games, and an orbiting battle station. Yet the reason it rings true for so many is that it is first and foremost a tale of humanity; a tale of a boy struggling to grow up into someone he can respect while living in an environment stripped of choices. Ender’s Game is a must-read book for science fiction lovers, and a key conversion read for their friends who “don’t read science fiction.”

Ender’s Game won both the Hugo and the Nebula the year it came out. Writer Orson Scott Card followed up this honor with the first-time feat of winning both awards again the next year for the sequel, Speaker for the Dead. –Bonnie Bouman

What’s inside?
Textures

The more you train your eye to notice the details, the more interesting your photographs will become.

Lines
Lines are one of the fundamental building blocks of composition. They direct the eye around an image and give the viewer a path to follow.

Colour
Colours determine the viewer’s emotional response to an image. They set the mood and determine what part of an image gets the most attention.

Reflections
Photographing a reflection creates a more unique image of an often photographed subject by adding interest and depth to your photograph.

Silhouettes
One way you can add drama, intrigue, and mystery to an image is by photographing your subject as a silhouette. Deep contrasts make for powerful and memorable images.

Close-ups
Often a story is better told in a series of images that reveal more about the essence of a subject than a single image can.

Frames
One way to quickly add a new dimension to your subject is to give it a frame inside the boundaries of the image.

Mimetic Theory and Biblical Interpretation: Reclaiming the Good News of the Gospel (Cascade Companions Book 0)


For close to two thousand years, Christian theology has been captivated by a sacrificial rendering of the Gospel that renders God as retributive, arbitrary, and Janus-faced. In the past fifty years a non-sacrificial way of perceiving the Gospel, God, and the mission and message of Jesus has challenged this sacrificial hegemony. Now what began as a trickle in the 1960s has burst the dam and the Gospel is on a collision course with Christianity. What are some of the implications of this moment? What is the integral cohesion in a non-sacrificial theology, ethics, and spirituality? What does Christian doctrine look like if one removes retributive economies of exchange?

“The Gospel is on a collision course with Christianity, Michael Hardin says. It’s time to leave the two-faced God of conventional Christianity behind and discover (at last!) the nonviolent character of God revealed in the one face of the crucified Christ. Sound intriguing? Don’t miss Mimetic Theory and Biblical Interpretation. It’s bold, clear, and needed now more than ever.”
–Brian D. McLaren, author of The Great Spiritual Migration
 
“One of Rene Girard’s most capable and creative interpreters is Michael Hardin. In this gripping and succinct volume Hardin demonstrates that Girard’s views of sacred violence, sacrifice, and the scapegoat were not original with him, but the Bible; Girard’s nonviolent God and forgiving-victim Jesus are not contemporary innovations, but are deeply rooted not only within the scriptures, but orthodox Christian theology. This is a wonderful short introduction to the theological and biblical implications of Girard.”
–John E. Phelan Jr., Senior Professor of Theological Studies, North Park Theological Seminary
 
“This is a passionate statement connecting Girardian theory with the interpretation of the Bible in the modern US context, with a dash of Barthianism thrown in for good measure. . . . Hardin’s uncompromising assessments will challenge some of his readers. But this book has a touch of the prophetic. Its exposes of violence are needed now more than ever.” 
–Douglas A. Campbell, Professor of New Testament, The Divinity School, Duke University 
 
“What we think about God matters–a matter of life and death for many thousands throughout the centuries of Christian violence. . . . I sincerely believe that this book will shine a light on the path back home to God for those who are disenchanted, disillusioned, and dismayed by the contemporary church. In other words, Michael Hardin has given us back a God stolen from us by the church–a God of immeasurable, unfettered love, endless extravagant grace, and incalculable unbounded redemption.”
–Sharon L. Putt, Professor of Theology and Religion, Messiah College

Michael Hardin is the cofounder and executive director of Preaching Peace, cofounder of Theology and Peace, and is the coeditor of Compassionate Eschatology, editor of Reading the Bible with Rene Girard, and author of the acclaimed The Jesus Driven Life, in addition to other books and essays. With his wife, Lorri, Michael has taken courses for the past decade on wilderness survival and Native American healing traditions. He is a singer/songwriter.

Raised in Fire (Fire and Ice Trilogy Book 2)


Limited time release week sale!

The exciting continuation of the Top 10 Amazon Bestseller by USA Today Bestselling author, K.F. Breene!

It is a common truth in my life that when it rains, it pours.

The killings that once plagued New Orleans are cropping up again in Seattle. The local office is stumped. I’m called out to lend a fresh set of eyes, and my unique magical touch.

It’s only when I get there that I realize the Seattle office isn’t stumped at all.

They’re being silenced by the Mages’ Guild, a corrupt magical institution that doesn’t want word to get out of what is plaguing the city. Worse, news of my magic might’ve slipped down to the underworld, hitting the ears of some extremely powerful demons.

What I thought was a routine murder investigation turns into a fight for my life. With the help of Darius, my stalker elder vampire, and my dual-mage side kicks, I somehow have to dodge the Guild in order to stop one of the most powerful demons I’ve ever encountered. If I don’t? It’ll escape back down below with proof of what I really am.

My life hangs in the balance, and this time, I can’t see a way out.

Near Home: Fantastic photographs sprinkled with Inspirational quotes (Soul Photography Book 2)


“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” (Les Brown)

The book “Near Home” is a work of art, not just a common collection of photos.

It is the second in a trilogy by photographer Tomer Peled.

One need not travel far and wide to see the wonders of creation. Whether someone is jogging or riding a bike, the movements, angles and even stillness all influence the way the photographer sees the object and captures it.

We are curious. Even near home, we curiously follow types of people and living creatures, and we learn. You look at the surrounding pattern, identify the right moment for the shot, master time, and learn to trust intuition and experience. You recognize people’s behaviors – when they are angry, irritated or what makes them happy.

The greatest power of these photos comes from the tiniest details of everyday life. As we go in life, we remain oblivious to many things as we pass them by, directing our gaze down towards the ground, not being present at the current moment.

The book “Near Home” brings us breath-taking photos, which let the reader take a view at reality through the artist’s eyes. It creates a connection between miraculous natural scenes and processed photos, all conceived through the lens of Tomer Peled, sprinkled with phrases and sentences for inspiration and awe.

Gift this book to yourself or to someone special!

Second Edition Published On September 19, 2016


How To Be A Leader, Not A Boss

Leadership is a term that people perceive very differently. Most think of CEOs, managers and coaches and while that is of course true, it is much more than that. A leader is a person who goes in front of new projects, ideas or trends, and who can direct others towards a common goal. It doesn’t even have to be on a big scale. Remember that teacher who sparked your interest in mathematics or literature? Or your father who motivated you to do your homework when it was difficult? Leaders can be found everywhere in society, and you don’t need a big title to become one. Sometimes you will even have to be a leader without being told to be one. Many employees today are assigned more and more tasks and responsibilities at their workplace without that big promotion to go with it. With more responsibility, they will suddenly have to act as leaders for their other team members, even though no one told them to.

Here’s what you’ll find in the book:

● What is Leadership?
● Why you should step up to the leadership challenge
● How to approach your new leadership role
● Improve your leadership skills at work
● Leadership Styles
● much, much more…
