Shadow Realms Demonology Handbook

$20.00
More Info
In this book titled Shadow Realms Demonology Handbook, you will find articles by demonologists Carl L. Johnson and Lana J. Brock. Carl is known for his appearances on Syfy Channel's Ghost Hunters seasons 1 & 2; and Animal Planet's The Haunted in 5 episodes. He also appeared in an episode of A Haunting with his family. Lana appeared on Syfy Channel's Paranormal Witness in an episode called Deliver Us from Evil and a couple of appearances on the Ghosts R N.E.A.R. show PBS Rhode Island. Both have appeared in numerous paranormal radio shows and have shared their experiences as witnesses of the paranormal, the demonic, for which path led them to study and research that field as demonologists. This is their first endeavor branching out beyond, already set standards of what is traditionally known as "demonology"; to "think outside the box" and ponder new theories on negative spirits, demons and the shadow realms for which they dwell. There are differing views between the two authors to demonstrate various perspectives and to display a method of hypothesizing and speculation outside what is known as demonology. Our world is filled with wonderful views of mythology, religious and scientific studies from all cultures. We invite you as we share our thoughts on this topic to consider the possibilities outside of that realm, as we know it.

Sweet Dreams, Sweet Death

$12.00
More Info

Norton weaves realistic professional procedure and unexpected emotional jolts into the otherwise erotic flavor of Key West, creating a debut that will seriously contend for all the "Best First" awards.-author Jeremiah Healy

P. K. Norton introduces a new heroine to mystery fans!

Everybody loves Chef Garcia's key lime coconut petit fours. Some even say they're to die for. When four guests die at a wedding at the Beaux Reves Hotel, the famous petit fours are blamed.

Insurance investigator Amy Lynch flies from Boston to Key West to prepare for a wrongful death suit, her first trip to the island since her fiance died there three years ago.

Amy's investigation is beset with problems from the get-go. The hotel management is pushing for a quick settlement regardless of fault. The local police are calling the event a tragic accident. Most potential witnesses are missing, deceased or unhelpful. The ghost of Amy's fiance haunts her as she fends off pressures from all sides and copes with uncertainties concerning her new relationship.

She encounters death at every turn. The health inspector who monitored the hotel kitchen dies in an auto accident; the reporter who covered the incident for the local paper turns up drowned; even a homeless woman Amy befriends is found dead. And deceased wildlife crosses her path more than once.

As she forges on in the face of these obstacles, Amy wonders if Key West is the tropical paradise of the travel brochures or a petri dish of death.

Thank You for Your Service

$20.00
More Info

This book has grown out of a query from my grandson, Mark T. Holden, who was asked to bring a veteran to his elementary school to honor Veterans Day in November 2012. He asked his mother if he had a veteran that he could bring to school. His mother explained that there were many veterans on both sides of his family. His grandfather, Robert Poteete lived in Georgia, too far away to come to school in Rhode Island. His great grandfather, Edward L. Caughey, who had died, served in the Navy. Mark was very disappointed and felt left out. I asked if he could take photos of his great grandfather or grandfather or some memento such as a medal from the Spanish American War to school and would that count? The answer was: No. That answer started me on this project of researching and writing about the veterans in the Caughey family. This project also led me to ask my Caughey cousins to write about their fathers, daughters and sons who have served as sailors and soldiers over the years. What began as "my" project to help my grandson has become "our" project for the edification of all our grandchildren and perhaps, someday, their grandchildren.

The First Song

$14.95
More Info
Who sang the first song? Imagine living in a time, 30,000 years ago, when there was no music. People grunted and animals howled. Then someone made up a melody based on the sounds of nature and shared it with all the jungle's people and animals. Singing together not only brought them joy but also provided them with a peaceful way to communicate. On the surface this is a simple story about Yala, a girl who liked to sing, but the underlying message is that it's possible to live peacefully if we listen to one another. And we shouldn't underestimate the power of music to heal and bond us. Imagine a world where all people are embraced and all animals are respected. Each of us can strive to make our world a safer and friendlier place.

This Unfamiliar Road

"Mommy, can it kill you?" I turned toward my son's little voice from the backseat, his question wounding my soul. I considered his innocent face as his blue eyes searched mine for the truth.

That is where I choose to live. From snot on my husband's shirt to survival, these are some of my moments.

There are so many stories that I have to share that are a result of my upbringing, my home, schools I attended and my Catholic faith that the only way to do them justice is to continue the remainder of the book in vignettes.

These feelings exude a range of happy, sad, bittersweet, tender, determined and loving - all parts of me that show a person who refused to give in to the negative side of life.

Try

$16.95
More Info

TRY is an inspiring children's book with original song about not being discouraged to take a chance on anything you want to do. After all, any accomplishment in life starts with that first step of trying regardless of your fear of failure, not being any good, or caring about what others think. There are no limits if you just give it a go!

The song for TRY has an island reggae vibe and is super catchy! After one listen, just TRY and get it out of your head!

Try is meant to be an interactive book; not only in song, but in visuals. We encourage grown ups to ask their little reader to describe the conflict on each page on the left and how each character used their will to try to create the solution on the right. Our hope is that seeing the problem become a resolution will allow children to decipher their own means of problem solving. Now all you can do is try! Enjoy!

University

$10.00
More Info
Once an educational backwater, Metropolitan University has risen to the top tier of American colleges. But success has come at a price, the institution's spirit crushed under the thumb of Fortin Shenford, Met's ambitious president, who effectively quashes all opposition on campus, his sights set on loftier peaks.

Against this backdrop, the residents of Sterling Hall's fourth floor manage to form a lasting bond. A fraternal oasis in a student body known for apathy and lack of cohesion, Sterling 4 is populated by memorable characters: Mike "Wally" Hall, leader of the self-styled Mutants; Dwight, the wheelchair-bound video game wizard; Marcus, the sheltered, socially naive freshman; Chug Allen, student-politician and rascal king; Brandon, the blunt-spoken activist; and tomboyish Rosemary, Marcus's unspoken crush. Over four years, enduring friendships are born, rules broken, and traditions established as they move from the trials of adolescence to the waiting responsibilities of adulthood.

Set in the go-go 1980's, University is a fun-filled romp through undergraduate life, in an era fondly remembered, yet not far distant from our own time.

I turn my head to catch a brief glance at the following obscurity. The quick peek costs me my coordination. Tripping over my own feet, I land in the arms of a blinding bright figure.
