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.

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

Who Wins the Battle Between Faith....and Fantasy?

Description: How does a middle-aged, married (with children), man of the cloth, marred by post-traumatic stress from military service in Afghanistan, make a spectacular return to society after years of a quiet, reclusive existence? Not quietly, that’s how. Author Tariq Rana takes an unconventional look at the polygamous relationship between a married Muslim and a blonde bombshell in his sensational new release, A Model Wife for a Gentle Imam. (An Imam. 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. In spite of the profound differences in ethnicity, religion and society, the model bears a striking similarity to the Imam’s wife. 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.

Midnight Sun, Arctic Moon: Mapping The Wild Heart Of Alaska By Mary Albanese

Midnight Sun, Arctic Moon: Mapping the Wild Heart of Alaska by Mary Albanese

Description: Mary Albanese, a young woman from upstate New York, began the adventure of a lifetime when she abandoned her safe and conventional path to follow the quiet but insistent inner voice that called to her—and carried her far. Irresistibly and inexplicably drawn to Alaska, Albanese, who was trained as a teacher, thought the pieces were beginning to come together when she learned of a teacher shortage in Alaska. Intent on her desire to go north, Albanese applied to every school in that sprawling state, but didn’t receive a single job offer. Still, Albanese felt that Alaska was waiting for her—and knew that if she didn’t go there, her life would never feel complete. With a one-way ticket to Fairbanks and a long-held belief that “if at first you don’t succeed, try something that’s harder,” Albanese arrived in Alaska and found herself becoming a geological explorer. Midnight Sun, Arctic Moon: Mapping the Wild Heart of Alaska is her story. Midnight Sun, Arctic Moon chronicles Albanese’s journey and the unexpected path that led her to become an arctic geologic explorer, from mapping remote wilderness areas, to surviving the harsh life Alaska had to offer, to probing the depths of her own heart.

Why Hitler May Not Be In Hell... Minister's New Book Reveals Why There Is Life After Death - For Everyone!

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. For centuries the Christian Church has taught that Hell waits for those who have done evil and haven't repented and Heaven is the reward for those who do good and honor God with their lives. So why is it that the Bible tells a very different story? 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.

"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.

Hillbilly Herald Self-Titled Album

Hillbilly Herald Self-Titled Album Cover

Description: The Hillbilly Herald self-titled album is the rock-n-roll lovers dream gift! Staying true to Rock n' Roll, Hillbilly Herald is bringing back "The Show" with in-your-face guitar slingin', raspy-voiced singin', drum ringin', rock-n-roll, and taking the US by storm. Packing in world-renowned venues like the Viper Room, Roxy Theater, and the House of Blues, the band, fronted by Jimmy Herald (vocals) seems unstoppable. The band's success has been largely the result of Herald's balls-out attitude towards rock-n-roll and his determination to move the group forward. Herald was given the gift of insight by Slash himself over 5 years ago in a bar in Los Angeles. He had never been interested in performing; had never picked up an instrument or written a song in his life, until Slash came into his life. Slash told Herald that his persona was perfect for the lead singer of a rock band. And thus, Hillbilly Herald was born. The current lineup consists of Mark "The Cat" Hill (Lead Guitar), Adam Wolf (Bass), Hawaiian Brian (Guitar), and Louie "Sea Biscuit" Riel (Drums).

Adult Coloring Book

RxColor the Adult Coloring book by Dr.Shyla High

Description: RxColor Who said coloring is just for young children? Certainly not Dr.Shyla High. Dr.High, who has forged a successful career as a Dallas based cardiologist, is the fiery creator of a therapeutic coloring book – RxColor ww.rxcolor.com. While recovering from a skiing accident, Dr.High came up with the idea of a coloring book for adults: “I realized that no accurate diagnosis or effective medicine can fill those hours void of a basic need: the satisfaction of starting something at the beginning of the day and finishing it at the end of the day. Coloring is not only a way to use your creativity, but it is a great stress relief and way to cleanse your mind and soul.” Having a copy of RxColor in front of me and a couple of crayons, I can’t argue with Dr.High. RxColor is fun, a challenge and provides solid relief from stress. Much the same way children learn from their first coloring book experiences, RxColor allows adults to successfully express themselves, feel vital and active. “ When people think of art, they usually think of the creative process and emotional process but it's important to recognize that art allows people with even Alzheimer's disease to use their preserved cognitive skills.” Says Dr.High
