Gingerbread Men and Toad's Wart


Gingerbread Men and Toad’s Wart 


Life isn't easy for a witch who bakes cookies instead of brews potions. It's a lot harder for a single witch living with a cranky basilisk. But Cresella's life is upended when a new client, Walter, comes looking for a batch of gingerbread men—and asks her to a Christmas party he's throwing. He's handsome, charming, sweet, but oh so human. Their worlds don't mesh, so a relationship between a human and a witch is foolish. She's also had bad luck in love, and with her floundering cookie business, does she have time for a romance that seems doomed from the start? But Walter offers her a tempting new world she finds hard to resist…



 





The Ball Bounced Backward




When Doug Elliot found an envelope of old photographs in the garage, memories flooded back of his time coaching son, Travis, and a fourth-grade basketball team. It all seems so distant now.

Doug’s memories of those days 25 years ago remain warm…mostly. More so in reflection than at the time. He remembers the cacophony of shrill, laughing young voices and the hollow sound of bouncing basketballs; spirited kids, running up and down the court, playing as hard as they could; jubilant boys, shoveling down pizza, and wearing big grins. And, the games his team won.

But Doug also remembers a situation more complicated than teaching young boys a game. He does not so warmly recall the demands of parents blowing hot and cold, a mysterious figure at work intent on exploiting his kids to satisfy a personal agenda, opposing coaches ranging from fatherly to abusive, a nun serving as school principal and disciplinarian, players too self-centered to worry about the team, and his own competitive instincts that were not always gratified. And, he recalls facing the trade-off between winning games and giving every team member extended playing opportunities. When eventually forced to address that trade-off, Doug wonders if coaching his son’s team was worth the stress.

Lethal Control

 


Lethal Control: A Doctor Nora Kelly Mystery 


A MYSTERIOUS BLUE PATIENT IS ABANDONED AT OAKLAND CITY HOSPITAL. Doctor Nora Kelly must outwit a powerful corporate adversary to diagnose her patient’s illness and safeguard her community.

An anonymous blue patient is abandoned at the doorstep of Oakland City Hospital and cries out for her young daughter before passing out. Doctor Nora Kelly must struggle against the clock to diagnose her patient’s life-threatening illness and mysterious discoloration. The task becomes more difficult when the patient awakens but refuses to speak with anyone on staff, fearing reprisals from immigration and child-protection authorities.

Nora suspects that her patient’s illness is caused by exposure to toxic chemicals, and she worries that others in the community may be endangered as well. But the patient remains silent. Only after learning that Nora saved her life does she agree to answer Nora’s burning questions—still, for a price. In return, Nora must deliver a confidential message to her daughter.

Nora’s end of that bargain is the beginning of a perilous journey that leads to a homeless encampment at a decrepit local stadium site. With the help of her colleagues, she desperately searches for the daughter as she also discovers that other encampment residents have succumbed to toxic exposures. Her insistent attempts to prove the site’s environmental contamination come up against powerful systemic forces and trigger dangerous personal consequences.

Editorial Reviews


"Scannell lifts the veil on the life-and-death struggles taking place both inside and around the edges of an urban hospital. A fast-paced drama of overlapping lives, conflicting emotions, and the threats posed by immigration, human trafficking, and environmental degradation."
--Leslie Larson, author of Breaking Out of Bedlam
                                        ~~~                                              
"With Lethal Control, Kate Scannell crafts a mystery threaded with social activism and environmental justice.
In present-day Oakland, California, Nora Kelly is a doctor in a community hospital. When a number of desperately ill homeless people are brought into her care, Kelly is pulled into a web of intrigue surrounding the redevelopment of a local stadium site where her patients camp.

With the aid of her colleagues, Kelly investigates the site's potential contamination. As the novel races toward its conclusion, she uncovers a decades-old conspiracy that interweaves many of Oakland's most pressing social problems, including homelessness, environmental racism and gentrification.

Scannell excels at characterization, bringing a vibrancy to individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, from debutantes to homeless individuals. For example, Red, who plays a critical role in the plot as a guard at the stadium site, displays a poignant tenderness beneath a rough demeanor shaped by his own years on the streets.
The plot is taut and engaging... Scannell's authorial gaze is remarkably compassionate, especially to those who have been discarded by society at large. In addition to being an intriguing mystery, the novel is a cry for social activism..."

                                     ~~~~~
Clarion Rating: 4 out of 5
Lethal Control is a physician-led mystery with a strong social message...This series title includes characters from a previous volume; their introductions here are light, but their personalities are still made apparent... And the book’s mystery elements are punctuated with scenes of medical drama...These varying stories connect in the high-energy resolution, in which Nora's fears-and her willingness to push through them-are validated...

Ancient Astronauts

 


Ancient Astronauts

- The search for humanity's hidden ancestors, ancient cave paintings going back tens of thousands of years, stone carvings buried for ages now revealed, unexplained depictions in ancient manuscripts.

Dwayne Buckle brings you the most intriguing conspiracy theories in “Ancient Astronauts”. The book focuses on the idea that not only do aliens exist, but it takes this belief a step ahead. It is suggested that aliens visited the earth thousands of years ago and shared their advanced technology with mankind. The book emphasizes this idea by taking a look at multiple unresolved mysteries. The Pyramids of Giza, for example, are truly a wonder to mankind. How is it possible that those heavy stones were carried without modern machinery? Especially considering that some of those stones weighed more than 2 tons. More importantly, how were the pyramids constructed to align with the Orion Belt stars? The precise astronomical alignment of the pyramids certainly cannot be attributed to humans.
Similar to this theory, Dwayne Buckle has gathered many other theories from different areas, languages, and religions. The information in the book is complete yet precise. Only the most relevant facts regarding these theories are added. Another notable aspect is the variety of content. The book includes information regarding the Wheel of Ezekiel, the Nazca Lines, Stonehenge, along with various mysterious phenomena from different parts of the world. The same fact emphasized by many different stories and myths adds an air of authenticity. Just the fact that so many mysteries from all over the world point to the same conclusion seems surreal.

The Bath Beside the Still Waters




Are you facing life with a loved one with Alzheimer’s?

Are you struggling with the emotional toll that it is taking?

Do you want to find some way of keeping the flame of their life going?

Alzheimer’s is a cruel disease that robs those who have it of precious memories and abilities that they once took for granted. Not only that but it leaves a trail of destruction for family members, partners, wives, husband and children that there can seem to be no answer to. But there is always hope, and it can often be found in circumstances where it seems most unlikely.

In this book, The Path Beside the Still Waters, Shaun Lennon describes how he and his wife fought back against Alzheimer’s, to snatch back small fragments of her life and offer hope to others who face similar conditions.

Faced with a bleak future, Shaun set about creating a new life for her, where she could enjoy long walks, caf├ęs, conversations with friends and strangers alike, and find renewed joy and laughter at an unlikely crossroad of her life.

It is a book written to appeal to those who face similar anguish, who are interested in the struggle for life and the immense importance of keeping its purpose, joy and hope alive in spite of an illness that only threatens to rob and destroy.

Knowing Jesus in the Broken Place

 


Knowing Jesus in the Broken Place:

Wounds Healed by His Scars


At the age of 8 years old, I tried to commit suicide. From 12-14 years old, I ran away from my father, who abused me physically, mentally, and emotionally; eventually, I became homeless. I was raped at the age of 14 by a person who claimed to be a relative of mine. I became pregnant, and when I told them, no one believed me. I needed a way of escape. In the early 1980s, I became addicted to drugs.

Abused by my father, abandoned by my mother, and rejected by those I felt were supposed to love me. I know what PAIN is. I understand what it means to be alone with no one to turn to. But then I found out that the Lord was going to deliver me. He told me that I belonged to him and would be healed by him when I allowed him into my broken areas.

“Knowing Jesus in the Broken Places: Wounds Healed by His Scars” is a prophetic book that has been given to me by the Holy Spirit. I hope that it will help people understand that the Lord is with them even in the broken areas of their life.
