Unique New Release Is Both Literary Fiction And Musical Concept Album Combined

Classical Musician and Composer Strikes a New Chord with the Written Word

Description: David Houston wanted to take readers from what a book is, to what a book can be and the result is his unique new release, Fugue, a work of literary fiction coupled with a downloadable six track, musical concept album. Fugue blends dystopian, romantic, and suspense elements within a plot-driven narrative that spans thirty years of time and moves across four continents, unfolding primarily in New York City, Seville, and Afghanistan and is carried by three main, beautifully-created and unforgettable characters who face a dramatic, life-changing event around the age of eighteen, setting them upon a path that irrevocably intertwines their story and romantic involvement – for better and for worse. The plot then shifts in a dystopian direction halfway through the story after terrorist attacks redefine the geopolitical landscape of not only the United States, but the entire world. The music, which accompanies the book, is extremely diverse, ranging from rock to classical to metal to singer/songwriter. It was designed to include three vocalists to personify the three characters, along with acoustic and electric guitars, piano, cello, bass and drums. His lyrics, both original and adaptations of famous poems, always relate to the central themes expressed in the book.

Thinking Your Way To Happy!

Overcome common barriers to Happiness!

Description: Human beings are creatures of habit. The brain loves the comfort of repetition even if it brings great pain and suffering. Everyday people make choices to; be late, over eat, or to be too busy or stressed for their children, to delay health, to hold a grudge, to react instead of respond, to indulge in immediate gratification - essentially people choose to neglect important areas of their lives – yet often it does not feel as though any choice is involved in this process at all. The books fundamental message is around governing your thoughts and interrupting automatic behaviors in favor of personal freedom and results that inspire. The intention is to help you to begin to think from a new place, thus engaging the frontal lobe the area of the brain responsible for conscious choice. The more you do so, the easier the process of change becomes. Thinking Your Way to Happy! also identifies the most common ‘Happy Traps’; Give up the ’someday, one day, when day, western mentality where you reserve joy and happiness for when your business is finally thriving, you lose that extra weight, your credit cards are paid off or you meet that special someone.’

The Dream Team Of 1947 – Book By Arno P. Niemand

The Dream Team of 1947 proves that any team with talent and heart can win

Description: The Dream Team of 1947 is a classic but true David and Goliath story that transcends the sport of wrestling. It’s the remarkable story of the greatest team you have never heard of, the wrestling team of Cornell College, a tiny, private college that won the NCAA wrestling championship in 1947, defeating all the major powers, becoming the first school outside of the state of Oklahoma ever to win the team championship since teams were officially recognized by the NCAA; no other private school before or since has done so. Then the champions traveled to San Francisco and won the equally prestigious National AAU championship, completing the grand slam of amateur wrestling. The story is informed by the Great Depression and World War II, as well as the GI Bill, which leveled the playing field for several years after the war. It involves a coach direct from central casting, a nurturing small college, three freshmen superstars, and five service veterans, all of whom bonded as a team to defeat all comers. Were it not for a serious car crash the following year that injured two of its stars, there is no telling how much more the team might have achieved. $19.95 - available on Amazon and several bookstores

A Model. A Dream. A Novel.) The Imam of Breezewood, a retired veteran of Coalition involvement in Afghanistan, while living a simple life in a small community, discovers a fashion model in one of the clothing magazines for a local high-end clothing boutique.

Struggling with the expectations of marital fidelity but unable to ignore a growing fascination with the fashion model, he makes a life-changing decision by taking up with a woman of a different faith. A naturally furious wife and an alienated congregation both decry his lack of discretion in a battle between liberal, secular values and the fundamental prerogatives of divine decree.

Global Grace: Everyone Gets a Second Physical Life!

Description: For every human being, the fear of death is an everyday reality. Yet…it isn't just the fear of death itself but what happens afterwards. The great unknown.

Former journalist, minister and author James Glover took on that question and shares his mind-blowing revelations in his newest book Global Grace: Everyone Gets a Second Physical Life! Global Grace begins by asking twelve of the hardest questions that have ever been posed concerning the teaching of the Christian faith such as “If God exists, why does He allow so much suffering?” and “Are Hitler and others who committed great atrocities going to be resurrected, too?” It then provides answers to those questions by separating the most significant elements of the Bible and putting them back together chronologically and in plain language, pointing out the common points of creation and human experience. Global Grace is amazing book for readers of all faiths.

Astrology Of The 13 Signs Of The Zodiac - Ophiuchus: The New Sign Of The Zodiac Circle

CONTROVERSIAL RELEASE DARES TO LOOK BEYOND THE FALLACIES OF TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY... INTRODUCES UNIQUE NEW ASTROLOGICAL THEORY

Description: If you’ve been going through life thinking you were a Virgo…think again. Physicist Vasilis Kanatas has proven that a shift in the Earth's alignment has not only changed zodiac dates, but has also added a 13th sign, Ophiuchus. Kanatas, author of Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac Ophiuchus: The New Sign of the Zodiac Circle, proves that a very tiny annual movement of the axis of the Earth called “Precession of the Equinoxes” prompts corresponding discrepancies in the predictions of astrology, which move further and further away from reality with each passing year. By extension, the constellations of Zodiac are also in different positions from those assigned to them by Western Astrology, and a new zodiac constellation, Ophiuchus has been identified in the path of the Sun on the ecliptic. With this shift also comes a change to most people’s zodiac sign and a corresponding much more accurate horoscope. Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac (www.astrology13.com) examines: • The new sign of Ophiuchus • What the changing of your Zodiac sign indicates • Finding your new Zodiac sign, Ascendant and Sunspots • How the new astrological theory affects how we see ourselves from new astrological point of view

Death Of The Republic

Book Cover

Description: An intriguing new novel, Death of the Republic, by F. Scott Andison, presents a compelling case that a Nazi-like takeover of the United States is a realistic possibility. Andison’s novel is set during the background of the 2020 presidential election, where handsome, articulate, independent presidential hopeful Robert Strong is mounting a second bid for the U.S. presidency, and is widely expected to make a strong showing. Meanwhile, Strong's primary backer and brother-in-law, billionaire Sherman Gale, is under investigation by both the FBI and CIA for his activities on his 300,000-acre fundamentalist Christian community in Wyoming. As the novel unfolds, Chu falls blindly in love and learns the hard way that nothing is what it seems. Indeed, Gale believes God's demand that Strong ascend to the presidency is merely the first step in a larger covert "Plan" which Gale is determined to execute at all costs. According to the Kirkus Review, Gale’s “Plan is frighteningly ingenious and leads to many impressive twists, most saved for the book’s final act.”

Good, Better, Best Wines, A No-Nonsense Guide To Popular Wines

Good, Better, Best Wines

Description: America is drinking more wine than ever with the nation poised to become the world’s biggest wine consumer by 2012 according to the British firm IWSR. And the vast majority of what Americans drink are popular big brands under $15 per bottle with names like Sutter Home, Beringer, and Woodbridge—a trend that’s expected to continue. But big brands are not created equally. Good, Better, Best Wines, A No-Nonsense Guide to Popular Wine is the first book to rank the best-selling wines in North America. “While wine snobs are swirling and sniffing expensive wines that are tediously hard to find, the rest of America is just drinking wine. Popular wine. Big brand wine,” says author Carolyn Evans Hammond. “Big brands can spell terrific value but you need to know which bottles to buy. That’s where Good Better Best Wines comes in. It’s small enough to pop in your pocket and take with you to the shop. And it’s user-friendly enough to flip through on the fly.” Good, Better, Best Wines ranks the wines by varietal and price up to $15 with tasting notes as well as bottle images to help readers find the wines on the shelves. And its accessible style and useful content—including a chapter on Good Deals at Super-Low Prices—cut the intimidation factor traditionally associated with wine.

"A Southern Solution" By Alan Beck

"A Southern Solution" by Alan Beck

Description: Laugh Or Else It Will Hurt Given all the turmoil in our country today about the economy, our debt, foreign policy, you name it - there is only one possible solution, says satirist Alan Beck. Laugh. “If you can’t laugh at it, it’s only going to hurt,” says Beck. “Conveying the message of our downward spiral is important as we seem to stall at any important decisions in our society.” A Southern Solution is a dark satire about the disappearing American Dream. The main character's plans for a lazy, margarita-fueled retirement are thrown into chaos when a zany cast of characters steps into the picture. Both the FBI and the Chinese government seem to have bigger plans for him, and Kopfklopper soon finds himself in a dizzying whirlwind of political intrigue. As he works his way through the mess, he finds the key to balancing America’s national budget without negatively impacting anyone, and now the clock is ticking as he decides whether to become the next big politician or to stick with his new life of leisure on the beach. Beck believes A Southern Solution will appeal to mature audiences disillusioned with the current political, economical and ethical state of America, much like his main character. He takes serious events happening around the world today and puts a humorous twist on them in order to engage readers, rather than bore us with a recap of the events we live through day after day.
