Half The Child



HALF THE CHILD takes place over four consecutive summers in the lives of Michael Mullen and his son Benjamin, who ages from 2½ to 5½. The novel chronicles the separation, divorce, custody battle, and abduction that threaten to tear apart father and son. Mike is a 34-year-old air traffic controller at New York City’s LaGuardia Airport who is also pursuing a graduate degree in Psychology. He and Ben’s mother were married for less than five years when she suddenly decided to seek a divorce. Throughout these four summers the legal stakes keep dramatically increasing, as mediation devolves into litigation, and her romantic and career aspirations spur her to first take Ben to Indiana, and then to abduct him and resettle outside the U.S. For Mike, the cost of asserting his rights as a father and Ben’s rights as a son continues to escalate. Over the course of the four summers, the battle for Ben negatively affects Mike’s career, education, financial state, friendships, romantic life, physical health, and emotional well-being. Ultimately, refusing to relinquish his parental rights leads Mike to personal bankruptcy, temporary homelessness, potentially catastrophic errors at work, and suicidal depression. Yet Mike steadfastly refuses to consider a life that consists of him living apart from Ben. Thematically, each of the summers is marked by a key stage in Ben’s development: • Book One, 2013: A Summer of Colors • Book Two, 2014: A Summer of Numbers • Book Three, 2015: A Summer of Words • Book Four, 2016: A Summer of Concepts For both Ben and Mike, these are years of unparalleled growth. But with courts continually ruling against Ben’s father, it remains uncertain if their bond will survive. Ultimately, they will write their own love story. HALF THE CHILD was a semi-finalist in both the 2017 James Jones First Novel Competition and the 2017 William Faulkner Creative Writing Competition.

You Are A Badass



Bestselling author, speaker and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver in You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. In this refreshingly blunt how-to guide, Sincero, serves up 27 bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises and the occasional swear word. 

 

Via chapters such as "Your Brain is Your Bitch," "Fear is for Suckers" and "My Subconscious Made Me Do It," Sincero takes you on a wild joy ride to your own transformation, helping you create the money, relationships, career and general all around awesomeness you so desire. And should you be one of those people who would rather take a bullet than get busted with a self-help book in your hands, fear not. Sincero, a former skeptic herself, delivers the goods minus the New-Age cheese, giving even the snarkiest of poo-pooers exactly what they need to get out of their ruts and start kicking some ass.

By the end of You Are a Badass, you will understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can't change, how to change what you don't love, and how to start living the kind of life you used to be jealous of.

The Handmaid's Tale



The Handmaid's Tale is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population.

The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment’s calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. The Handmaid's Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.

Not only can words hurt, but so can the lack of kind and loving words. Rob Alex, share with you a method to bring back and even add new loving words to your relationship. Following the approach presented in Speaking Kind Words will improve and bring a new outlook to your relationship.

The Top 100 Intimate Items for Lovers



Sexy Challenges knows that there is not limit to the sexual energy you can experience. However, a good majority of people out there do not have any clue what products are out there to help improve their sexual experiences. That is why I put together a crack team of experts to help find the best products for your sexual satisfaction.  

Now-a-days there are millions of sexual products out there to choose from. Which means there is a lot to consider when making a selection to put more pleasure in your sex life. Not only are their choices but there are health issues to sexual items, and now many times come with warranties and options, that a person can get overwhelmed in a hurry. Sex should not be stressful nor should picking out items to assist you in your sexual escapades. 
That is why this book was created. Items to enhance your sexual experience are investments. You put out money for said items and hope they will deliver massive returns on your investments. However throwing money blindly in a sex toy store or online isn’t the best investment policy. You have to do the research. With that being said most people don’t have the time or the balls to really dive into researching sexual items. Good thing my team here at Sexy Challenges does. 
 
We want to take as much of the guess work out of the process as possible. This book was designed to share our top picks with you so that instead of having millions of items to choose from you will have 100 or a few more of the best of the best. High quality, best price, longest lasting items to keep your libido active and excited. Together we will help you build a arsenal of sexual items to keep things new and evolving in your bedroom, and outside of it also.  

We are not just talking about sex toys such as vibrators. There is an entire world out there of amazing products that when used in the correct fashion will help turn you on and up to a new level of sexual excitement. The list is so long believe me it was a daunting task narrowing this book down to 100 items. Sure there will be sex toys in the list but there will also be games, beverages, items to cleaning up, storage, and a lot more areas that you might not have through about. That is why I brought in the experts.  

The goal here is to update this book twice a year to help keep it fresh and up to date on all the advancements in the sexuality felid. Part of our process is listening to our readers, so if you have a suggestion for a product to be in our next edition by all means sent the information to me. You will be able to find my contact information at the end of this book. Also if you have any question you can send them to me and if I don’t know the answer I will do my best to find it from our team or a different source.  

My suggestion for using this book is as follows. Go through the book all the way before you decide on anything to add to your play time. After you have finished mark down a few items you would like to try and have your partner do the same. If you are single and not dating you can skip that last step. Now compare lists and if any items are the same on both lists don’t hesitate pick those up right away. Next set a plan on what Item or items you want to try next and start a budget for your sexual pleasure items. Understand that everything in these pages might not be for you and the is okay we all are different and unique so embrace that fact. So if something doesn’t appeal to you don’t just pick it up cause it is in the book! Trust your feelings use the sexual force.  

Making your list out of the items in the pages and sharing it with your lover is a great way to help during gift giving times, such as the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, as well as weddings and bridal showers, and bachelor parties.

Love, Freedom & Aloneness



Osho, one of the greatest spiritual thinkers of the twentieth century, explores the connections between ourselves and others in Love, Freedom, and Aloneness: The Koan of Relationships
In today’s world, freedom is our basic condition, and until we learn to live with that freedom, and learn to live by ourselves and with ourselves, we are denying ourselves the possibility of finding love and happiness with someone else.
Love can only happen through freedom and in conjunction with a deep respect for ourselves and the other. Is it possible to be alone and not lonely? Where are the boundaries that define “lust” versus “love”...and can lust ever grow into love? In Love, Freedom, and Aloneness you will find unique, radical, and intelligent perspectives on these and other essential questions. In our post-ideological world, where old moralities are out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives. We have the chance to start afresh with ourselves, our relationships to others, and to find fulfillment and success for the individual and for society as a whole.
Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Just Between Us


 A Friends to Lovers Romance


Witty. Sweet. Passionate. True.

Us.

My best friend and I have the cliché down to the wire. Grew up on the same block, took baths together, shared birthdays...but nothing could have prepared me for our life now.
One where I am in love with her. 
I fell in love with Lorraine Dawes a long time ago. When I was young and had no clue what it meant, or what I was feeling. But I am grown now, and I have aged with a secret I am afraid will tear us apart. Being the star football player doesn't change it, and the women throwing themselves at me sure don't. Lorraine became my person and I learned to live with my secret until she crafted a Virgin Manifesto on her blog for thousands of people to read. I imagined no one thought the same thing I did.
That I could have her innocence, but never her heart.
We do things best friends shouldn't. I think things no one should about their best friend. I do things that tear us apart and I am left fighting for a way to be together.
How can I ever tell her how much I love her?

Beyond The Veil



Don't open the door. Don't look inside.

Some doors are best left closed.

Detective Adam Chapple had always assumed that death was final.

However, after his ex-wife is killed, the boundaries between life and death, fantasy and reality, and truth and lies begin to dissolve, when the main suspect in the murder insists she’s actually his star witness. 

Why? Because she met the killer once before.

When they were dead.

As part of his investigation, Adam seeks out the help of self-proclaimed witch, Cassia Veysie who insists she can communicate with the dead. However, the situation rapidly deteriorates when a bungled séance rips open a gateway to a sinister world beyond the veil, and unquiet spirits are unleashed into the world.

Can Cassia and Adam find a way to shore up the breach in the veil and keep the demons at bay?

With time running out and a murderer on the loose, the nightmare is only just beginning …

Get Beyond the Veil now!

Paranormal Encounters



(Tess Schafer-Medium Book 8)


Newlyweds Tess and Kade Sinclair are on a dual mission. One, end a curse that threatens the happiness of their future children and two, find family they’ve just learned exists!

So away they go to a mysterious island off the coast of Maine. Known as “Witch Island” to the locals, they believe its unique inhabitants are the answer to those missions.

But a negative force is disturbing the peaceful balance of the private island community. Spirit activity is on the rise and Tess is having disturbing visions of souls trapped on the “other side”. Can she help them, and accomplish her mission to resolve the curse, before she is banished from the one place and the one person capable of helping her?
