We’ve all seen it. A meme shows up on our computer. It is a nice-looking cabin sitting peacefully in the woods. There is a small babbling brook running behind it. The caption: “Could you survive for 30 days in this cabin with no phone, no internet, and no T.V.? When you are done you get $100,000.” Before you answer this question, you might want to read this book. Scott McPherson thought this would be no problem until he found himself face to face with his worse fears.

The thing about love…
It’s kind & beautiful, soft & hard, forgiving & emotional, but love can also be blind. Love can twist and turn you into someone unrecognizable.
That’s the way it was for Josie and me. She became my everything. I fell heart over mind, allowing her to take the only thing that I could call my own. The life I envisioned for us was blurred by secrets, hard to overcome. She made me question whether what we had was based on truth or a lie.
Dalton was an obstacle in the way of what I’d always shied away from, and the only way to reach my end was through him. So, I made a choice to get close to him, even when I shouldn’t have. We were never meant to be what we became. I didn’t intend for something forced to turn into something real. In the end, Dalton was so much more than just a means to an end. He held the key to everything, including my heart. It was his to have, to hold, to break, and to mend.
That’s the thing about love…
It can’t be forced. It just happens, and once it’s in motion, it’s impossible to stop.

From Cowgirl to Congress is an eyewitness account of Jessie Haver Butler, a suffragist on the front lines of the women’s movement.
Jessie escaped a childhood of unthinkable tragedies on a Colorado cattle ranch to attend Smith College, which propelled her into the center of the fight for the rights of women. Inspired by meeting Susan B. Anthony at age ten, she later worked side by side with Alice Paul and Carrie Chapman Catt.
When women won the right to vote on August 18, 1920, Jessie became the first official woman lobbyist at the Capitol in Washington, DC. She also helped establish the Pulitzer School of Journalism and set the first minimum wage for women. She went on to live in London, where she shared the podium with George Bernard Shaw, attended parties with Emily Pankhurst, influenced the queen, and met her lifelong friend Lady Astor.
Jessie later taught women the art of public speaking. She wrote Time to Speak Up and lectured alongside such notables as Eleanor Roosevelt, Gloria Steinem, and Marlo Thomas. She spoke out for women’s rights throughout her life and well into her nineties.
This timely memoir takes us back to the suffrage movement and beyond and includes unpublished letters from historical figures, as well as never-before-seen photographs. Jessie Haver Butler was an extraordinary woman, who lived her life with a spirit of adventure and open-mindedness. She was a mother, wife, and active community member, and her story weaves these threads together to complete her compelling journey—from cowgirl to Congress.

Once his journey began, it became far more complex. Now Jon Rayneksson is an agent of the mysterious Lady of the Lands, an artificial life-form who reluctantly portrays herself as God.
As he moves through the lands he, and his newfound companions begin to realize that they are mere pawns in a game of secrets and intrigue played by unfathomable cosmic entities.

MYK: PRINCE OF THE VENDS
A great historical saga (726 pages) that took ten years to research and write. The novel is based in 2nd Century middle Europe and has powerful male/female adult and teenage characters.
In an era where “White Privilege” is blamed for Caucasian success in America, it is time for us to review where we came from and the huge obstacles that faced our ancestors. Today if we have beautiful children we consider that a blessing, but 1,000 years ago beautiful children were at extreme risk for being taken into slavery or abused by over lords. Our ancestors faced; slavery, serfdom, starvation, severe weather, invasions, disease and abuse from their lords and masters, yet they established some of the greatest cultures ever know on this Earth.
Here’s what professional book reviewer, Chris Fisher from READER’S CHOICE has to say about the novel. “I loved this book! Loved it! I will admit the size of it originally intimidated me, as it might some readers, but don’t let it! Myk: Prince of the Vends is a masterful piece of historical fiction that is full of action, adventure and excitement.” An author can’t get a much better (unsolicited or not paid for) review than from a professional.
The novel also makes a great gift for young adults/teenagers to get them reading again. It’s one of those books when you put it down you cannot wait to pick it up again and follow your favorite characters.

Mature Reader warning: This book contains a lot of panty-dropping sexiness! There is raw sexual language (aka dirty talk), a little violence, and tons of heat! It is intended for readers 18+ and fans of the naughty stuff.

This Day in Comedy is not just an encyclopedia, but a celebration of comedy. In humorous prose the book takes readers through the often-neglected subcultures of comedy in America, acknowledging the inclusiveness of the performers as well as shows and films that made this art form so vital to comics of all backgrounds. It’s artistically criminal that a search for Native American or Asian comedy information yields a virtually blank slate. Look for Middle Eastern comics and you’ll be provided information on the region’s comic book revolution, and search results for Latin comedy are confined to a series of outdated articles. This encyclopedia will offer rare and in some cases never-before-seen photos and obscure facts, making it an indispensable comedy essential.

Join Jessica and Liz as they must skate on the left side of the law to restore a friend’s family honor, save a loved one from a deadly frame, and still manage not to get themselves killed! It’s enough to make Dusty the cat’s fur stand on end!
