Unleash Your Full Potential

$20.00
More Info
I started working out at 19 years-old when a good friend told me I was skinny and needed to start lifting weights. After that, it became an obsession. It wasn't until a few years later, and I was going down the path to trouble in my life, that I made it my occupation. This helped me turn my life around, and I never looked back. We are all in charge of our own destiny, and our thoughts and actions are responsible for shaping who we are. Many people fail to take responsibility for their position in life and use excuses and lay blame on others for their lack of success. I take a hard line, or tough love, approach to help motivate and encourage people to unleash their full potential. It is in all of us to be great, but it takes positive mindset and massive action to accomplish anything. With a relentless pursuit, and countless hours of coaching and guidance, I am living my passion by helping others to live a healthy lifestyle, and be the best that they can be. All humans are unique, but similar in nature. Every one of us has the ability or potential to achieve greatness, and this book will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and go from ordinary to extraordinary. If you want it, think it, and act on it, then you will be on your way to personal success in fitness and life.

Where the white walls meet the equally white ceiling there are rows of blinding light bulbs stretching all the way down the hall for as far as I can see. Behind me, the bulbs crackle and pop, darkening the distance I've traveled. Desperate to stay ahead of the expanding blackness that is rapidly approaching me, I continue to run. 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.

Wait Until I'm Dead

$14.50
More Info
Surviving family horror is one thing. Having the courage and determination to reveal it is another. DJ Brava, romance novelist extraordinaire, has the courage. She has the determination. She has friends covering her back. But when unearthing one family secret leads to another and another... can she survive the fallout? Some family members beg her to wait until they're dead. Has one of them gone too far in a misguided effort to protect someone -- or something? This is an engaging page-turner for anyone who loves a good family drama full of secrets and intrigue. It has the social consciousness of a Picoult, the wit and tongue of Evanovich, the resonance of Sue Miller, and the female bonding of "Thelma and Louise" -- without the drive off the cliff! Structured as a memoir within a novel, readers move through the main character's history of childhood trauma and healing. But it is her actions in the present that propel the story through a series of compelling revelations affecting numerous characters in unforeseen ways. The dialogue is crisp and the humor rich. Emotional connections are profound, and the topic is one that touches the lives of millions.

Wall Street Woman: A Dating Life

$15.00
More Info

WALL STREET WOMAN: A DATING LIFE IS A BESTIARY OF THE MEN IN THE ORBIT OF A SINGLE PROFESSIONAL WOMAN IN NEW YORK CITY. 

This authoritative guide profiles men found almost exclusively in Manhattan, including the jet-setting Don Juan Dinero, the hip downtown artist The Visionary and the driven workaholic Treadmill. Others are universal types who are abundant in the big city: ladies' man Jack of Hearts, social climbing Club Cadet, ambitious Boy Wonder, aristocratic romantic Major Gelatin. 

Some of these guys merely pass through town, like your high school boyfriend Teen Crush and the eternal dreamer Cloud Voyager. No guide would be complete without the men who are found anywhere and everywhere, such as the recently divorced Born Again Bachelor, very married philanderer Hopalong Husband, disappointed ex-professional Trainwreck and the deadly dull Dialtone. 

Each man is thoroughly described so you can immediately recognize him - how he discusses his interests, presents his accomplishments, tells you he likes you, asks you to bed, and talks about your future together. Good reasons to date him are also proposed. 

Finally, Mr. Right is celebrated in glorious detail. He's clearly worth waiting for. 

When anyone asks, "Why aren't you married?" tell her to buy this book.

Wired

$23.00
More Info
It was an explosive case of political corruption that rocked a small town, an entire state and drew headlines across the nation. Three sitting councilmen had been arrested and accused of executing a scheme to extort bribes. And once the dust settled, as many as ten officials were caught up in a scandal that swirled around nearly everyone in the suburban New England town that some called, "the most corrupt town in America." Yet had it not been for one man who worked undercover with the FBI for seventeen months - a career politician with thirty years' experience railing against corruption - the scheme may never have been revealed. In Wired, the author shares his own harrowing personal account of how he gambled his thirty-year political career, his reputation, and his family's safety in his quest to restore good, honest government to a community that needed it most. But Wired is more than just the tale of one valiant act. It is an exhaustively researched and detailed journey through the ins and outs of gritty small-town politics, behind the scenes dealings, and the corrupt activities that obscure local politics in the modern era. It's the story of something that could happen in any town in America, and regrettably, probably does.
