ARIA: Left Luggage
By Nelder Geoff

"You must buy ARIA because it is the ONLY book with infectious amnesia. You need this book to solve the question what is the most important thing we treasure in our minds? See the fictional infectious amnesia before it happens to you!"

ARIA: Alien Retrograde Infectious Amnesia

Today, Jack caught a bug at work. He catches a bus home. By the time he disembarks in the desert town of Rosamond, all the other passengers and the driver have fuzzy heads. Jack had caught an amnesia bug, and it’s infectious.

Imagine the ramifications:

The passengers arrive home, infecting family; some shop en route infecting everyone they meet. The bus driver receives more passengers giving them change for last week’s prices and today’s amnesia. Some passengers work at the power plant, the water treatment works, the hospital, fire station. All shut down in weeks.

One man, Ryder Nape, realizes what’s going on, but can he persuade friends to barricade themselves in a secluded valley, hiding from the amnesia bug?


“Geoff Nelder inhabits Science Fiction the way other people inhabit their clothes.” 
— Jon Courtenay Grimwood

“Geoff Nelder's ARIA has the right stuff. He makes us ask the most important question in science fiction--the one about the true limits of personal responsibility.” 
—Brad Linaweaver

Robert J. Sawyer calls ARIA a “fascinating project.”

“ARIA has an intriguing premise, and is written in a very accessible style.”
—Mike Resnick

NEW BLOG POST > Featured #Kindle #Book > Erasing Scars: Herpes and Healing @okun_james

Erasing Scars: Herpes and Healing
By James Okun, Evangelita Goodwell

A BREAKTHROUGH FOR HERPES SUFFERERS! GET NEW HOPE! NEW INFO! 
"A POWERFUL STORY THAT NEEDS TO BE TOLD" FRED RENO WBRZTV


Treating the Emotions


Millions of Americans are afflicted with genital herpes with tens of thousands of new cases being reported each year. This ravaging disease afflicts its sufferers with both physical and emotional scarring, and while effective treatments for the physical aspects of the disease have been developed in recent years, relatively scant attention has been given to the emotional trauma associated with the disease. And even less attention has been given to the connection between patients’ stress levels and recurrences of herpes outbreaks. 


Reducing Stress and Outbreaks
Dr. James D. Okun, MD addresses the role of emotional well-being in the effective treatment of herpes in his book Erasing Scars: Herpes and Healing. Drawing on the philosophy of Aesthetic Realism founded by poet and critic Eli Siegel and the clinical studies of UCLA Dermatologist Stanley M. Bierman, Okun makes the case for herpes sufferers’ coming to terms with their infection and seeking effective medical treatment for it, while pursuing therapies that will enable them to combat stress and thereby reduce the likelihood of further outbreaks once the physical symptoms have been dealt with.

NEW BLOG POST >> NEW RELEASE > LOVE SONG by @Susan_S_Shelley > the Rocked By Love Series continues >

LOVE SONG

He’d lost her to another man because he hadn’t admitted to his feelings. And he’d almost destroyed his band because of his broken heart. But when Luke Thompson, The Fury’s lead singer, learns that Audrey Pierce is once again single, he’s determined to do all he can to win her back.

Audrey walked away from Luke because she didn’t believe he’d stick around. She may make her living dressing rock stars, but she knows firsthand that living with one doesn’t work, especially one so devoted to his fans. She’s tried moving on, but can’t get Luke out of her mind. When he swoops back into her life, old feelings return, sharper and sweeter than ever, but she’s still afraid to trust him. 

Through love songs, sexy kisses, and solid determination, Luke convinces Audrey to give him a chance. When his beloved fans turn on her, Audrey expects some of the hate mail. After all, she’s dating the man voted sexiest rocker of the year. But the attacks escalate, and soon, even Luke’s support isn’t enough to make her feel safe. The only choice is to let him go.

Luke must make the ultimate choice—the love of his life, or the people who support his career. If Audrey walks away, Luke knows he’ll lose her for good. Can he convince her that their love is strong enough to survive anything, or will both his love and career end on a sour note?

REVIEWS & PRAISE

In writing my memoir, "Life Savors," Marcia was invaluable in helping me. Marcia, your clarity of vision in terms of a "through-line" was immensely helpful, and your suggestions, like "less of a travelogue" and "more Buffy – maybe dialogue" and "keep the focus" – were important to my efforts. You gave me a sense of purpose when I was discouraged and a sense of pride in what I was trying to do. As a memoirist "consultant," you are the best!

Let me tell you, that was the wisest decision I ever made. Marcia has a unique ability to explain the process and help you along. She is upbeat and very knowledgeable in writing and publishing. She will guide you, encourage you and direct your progress. I really could not have done my book without her. Thank you, Marcia.

Dear Marcia, You have been a great source of motivation and support both in developing my Memoir and encouraging me to write what I hope is my first of several children's books on adoption.

I look forward to our continuing to work together, it is the connection we have together that I value, and I appreciate you telling me you feel the same way. Thank you for all.

03/01/2016 FEATURED #KINDLE #BOOK on ContentMo > Return to Cameron Country @Angelin_Sydney

Once in a rare while, a contemporary love story is written that captures our imagination that it becomes an exhilarating experience. Return to Cameron Country is such a book. It is a triumph of how passion can be reckless and at the same time fiercely amazing. It is a tale that moves us to the pathos of fears and tears and along with it, joy and laughter. 

At 40, Captain Bryce Mabo Cameron, an Australian Special Forces and a single father, met an elfin American beauty, Belle. She came to his world and rocked it. Unexpectedly, he did likewise, such that she felt compelled to be with him, a man she hardly knew but with whom she was hopelessly in love. 

Daringly, 25-year old Belle left cosmopolitan New York to be with Bryce in the scorching heat of Australia's Gulf Savannah. 

Cameron Country was dry and dusty, prone to cyclones and full of wild life she never even knew existed. From working as a forensic accountant in a high-rise to marrying a man who could only be described as a warrior and a romantic dreamer, her life went from mundane to turbulent in one fell swoop. 

Would the beautiful Belle cope with it all? 

Or is she in for a world of regret?

12/01/15 Featured eBook on ContentMo >> Shadow of the Raven by Millie Thom #Viking #Fiction

Thunder claps roar and Odin’s ravens fly. Dragonships set sail – and the kingdoms of Western Europe hold their breath. Warriors of Thor are on the move. 

By the mid ninth century, Danish raids on Anglo-Saxon kingdoms have escalated. Several bands even dare to overwinter on the coastal islands, particularly those at the mouth of the Thames, where the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia border each other. 

The kings of these lands must put past enmity aside and take the first steps towards unity; steps they see as vital in the face of this newfound threat to their lands . . . 

Alfred of Wessex and Eadwulf of Mercia are the sons of kings, whose futures have been determined since birth. But the turbulent events in their childhood years change the natural progression of things – and shape the characters of the men they will become. Their roads to manhood follow vastly different routes, but both learn crucial lessons along the way: lessons that will serve them well in future years. 

Discovering that the enemy is not always a stranger is a harsh lesson indeed; the realisation that a trusted kinsman can turn traitor is the harshest lesson of all. 

The story takes us from the kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex to the Norse lands stretching north from Denmark to the Arctic Circle and east to the Baltic Sea. We glimpse the Court of Charles the Bald of West Francia and journey to the holy city of Rome. Through it all, the two boys move ever closer to their destinies.

11/29/15 Featured eBook on ContentMo >> Steve Jobs VS Bill Gates: Men of Visions and Innovations (VS HEROES)

One Little Book Two Big Heroes



Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are, undoubtedly, two of the most driven visionaries of our time. Somebody needed to write a comparative biographical book about them that could be read in an hour, obviously! 

These two men have literally “changed the world” with their innovative ideas and their revolutionary companies. 

This is a somewhat friendly comparison between Steve Jobs “the moody perfectionist artist” and Bill Gates “the laid back nerd guy.” 
We will compare and contrast the principles, philosophies, upbringings, legacies, accomplishments and more! 

Steve was the adopted misfit that broke all of the rules, did things his way and only his way while Bill was raised by his biological parents and didn’t get into much trouble. He was more of a "good kid." 
These men were both college dropouts, whom established their companies with the help of a best friend, and were also very great businessmen! 

In the year 1955, the Earth and its lowly inhabitants are fortunate to be blessed with not just one, but two visionaries and innovators that will help pave its way and give it an elegant entrance to the modern times. What is more is that sometime in their lives, they were bound to cross each other’s paths and leave a mark in each other’s lives and the world. 

Comparing these two men is like voicing a question that has been waiting to burst out of its box for such a long time. In fact, we have been subconsciously comparing these two men since the modern day an age and the presence of personal computers touched the way we live. 

We know how these two men are such big rivals when it comes to the digital world. However, it is also such a wonder to realize that these two well-known rivals have several traits, approaches, and beliefs in common as well. 

To compare Gates against Jobs is much like deciding whether to buy a Mac or a Windows PC. Both these men’s passion, style, and attitude can be seen on their company’s products. The devices that we are using now, in a way, represents what and how these men are without us noticing it. 

It is that rich legacy that Jobs left us and the legacy that Gates is still trying to enrich further that compels me to make this comparison. 


“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other opinions drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” 
~ Steve Jobs

11/28/15 BLOG POST >> Featured Kindle Book >> Fragments of Tom J H Wallder @JeffhwJeff

Fragments of Tom
By J. H. Wallder

Everyone wanted a piece of Tom. Kate certainly did. She reckoned just one more night and it would have been a different story. If she could have rekindled his childhood infatuation she would have made sure he put in for an Officer’s commission. Maybe then he wouldn’t have died a foot soldier’s death in 1944 crouching behind a doomed Mk. 4 Churchill tank. 

Vera had Tom to herself for two whole years. Or so she thought. She bore him twin sons though he went to his warrior’s grave never knowing. But if he never knew, who was the faceless spectre in the shadows at his eldest son’s wedding? 

Then there was Tom’s mother Flo. She simply couldn’t let him die. She’d struggled too hard as a lone parent in the hungry 1930s to let him go. Their paranormal relationship continued for 40 years after his earthly death. 

This story puts the fragments together - and discovers the true persona of Tom Harman.

"A BOOK FOR PARENTS AND TEACHERS - AND MAYBE THE PUPILS!" 

These stories from the classroom will have you laughing or weeping - sometimes both in the same minute! 
Whether student, teacher or parent you will wonder: How do they survive? 

Waterloo Road or Grange Hill meet Gervase Phinn - well maybe! Readers of this book will have to admit that the stories about its characters will stay in your memory for a long time. With over twenty years teaching experience behind him, G J Griffiths has brought to the reader some of the stories about the children he taught, in this amusing and often inspirational book. Without exception everyone will recognise the characters and their captivating tales.

All through the book we are made aware of the joys and disappointments experienced by the pupils and their teachers: Mr Jeffrey and his colleagues. With the ever-present controversy about changes in the education system this is a timely illustration of what is to be found in the classrooms of the contemporary High School. 

The book tends to concentrate in the latter part on an unpleasant boy Kyle, who is a bully, and his effect on two other boys, Adam and Nigel Shantra. Unknown to Mr Jeffrey he also affects the way his teaching job changes at the exact time that Robert really feels he has become a “good teacher”. The three paths of Nigel, Kyle and Robert Jeffrey converge several years later in the last chapter. 

Look out for an unexpected twist in this amusing collection of school stories that "should be made required reading for every student teacher!"

Captivated
By Susan Scott Shelley

Domingo Torres, star center fielder for the Los Angeles Riptide, needs to stay off management's radar after a Spring Training game ended in flying fists and bloodshed. He's ordered to keep a lid on his temper and a low profile for the rest of the season. Keeping his focus solely on baseball isn't a problem- until he meets his sexy new neighbor, and his thoughts shift to a lot more than his batting average. 

After years of complete control in handling every aspect of her brother's multi-platinum selling rock band, Irisa Rostov is ready to crack. And it doesn't help that the band is on the verge of self-destruction. Playing peacemaker and keeping them together for the last eight weeks of their spring concert series is all that matters- until she meets Dom, and the feelings he stirs up causes the guards around her heart to weaken. 

Getting distracted by romance is the last thing Irisa wants, and being in the headlines is the last thing Dom needs, but their attraction is undeniable, their connection is immediate, and staying away is impossible. 

But when being captivated by each other causes their worlds to fall apart, they must decide whether they're better off staying on the bench and out of each other's lives, or if love can find a way to win.
