I lived in a world of darkness, never to see the light again. It's been eleven years since my father cursed Crystal City, since he condemned me to a life of loneliness and misery. By taking away everything that my mother loved, he took everything that I knew and cared for. Everything, but the throne. Only what good was being a queen in a city of mindless killers? A city that would never see the sunlight until the day of my death. I truly had nothing to live for... ...Or so I thought. The night that Wolfe was dragged into my palace, I knew that my life would never be the same. We were childhood friends once, but we went our separate ways. He became captain of the pirates, and I ascended to the diamond throne. My once sworn protector had become my enemy, but we were both alone, and the connection we felt was almost unbearable to ignore. My heart only cracked after my father abandoned me, but Wolfe would completely shatter it. For someone that hasn't felt anything for years, that wasn't such a bad thing.

The Collected Works of W. B. Yeats, Volume IX: Early Articles and Reviews is part of a fourteen-volume series under the general editorship of eminent Yeats scholars Richard J. Finneran and George Mills Harper. This first complete edition includes virtually all of the Nobel laureate's published work, in authoritative texts with extensive explanatory notes. Coedited by John P. Frayne and Madeleine Marchaterre, Early Articles and Reviews assembles the earliest examples of Yeats's critical prose, from 1886 to the end of the century -- articles and reviews that were not collected into book form by the poet himself. Gathered together now, they show the earliest development of Yeats's ideas on poetry, the role of literature, Irish literature, the formation of an Irish national theater, and the occult, as well as Yeats's interaction with his contemporary writers. As seen here, Yeats's vigorous activity as magazine critic and propagandist for the Irish literary cause belies the popular picture created by his poetry of the "Celtic Twilight" period, that of an idealistic dreamer in flight from the harsh realities of the practical world. This new volume adds four years' worth of Yeats's writings not included in a previous (1970) edition of his early articles and reviews. It also greatly expands the background notes and textual notes, bringing this compilation up to date with the busy world of Yeats scholarship over the last three decades. Early Articles and Reviews is an essential sourcebook illuminating Yeat's reading, his influences, and his literary opinions about other poets and writers.

Betrayed is the true story of two men on opposing sides in WWII, one a sergeant in the US Air Corps and the other a Nazi rocket engineer. The sergeant was shot down, betrayed, and imprisoned in Buchenwald, while the engineer, an SS-Major, became a national hero of the Third Reich. After the war, the records of both men were classified Top Secret and concealed by threats, denials, and misrepresentations. The US government refuted the sergeant's accurate account, while promoting a fabricated history for the engineer, Dr. Wernher von Braun, who became as famous in the US as he had been in Nazi Germany. Betrayed demonstrates how an unconstrained military intelligence operation disrupted the lives of American ex-POWs in the name of "National Security."

Poverty. War. Bureaucracy. Divisiveness. Gridlock. Exploitation. Farmland degradation. Water shortages. Oil Spills. Nuclear meltdowns. Unemployment. Job dissatisfaction. Debt. Divorce. Depression. Anxiety. Addiction. Fear. Isolation. Loneliness. The 21st century world we live in is charging full steam ahead, seemingly at the speed of light. Though this breakneck pace has created many amazing marvels of modern technology, it has also created a more complex set of interlocking problems than our species has ever seen before. We all contribute to perpetuating faulty global systems in one way or another, but it takes a lot of humility to be able to admit that. By firstly focusing upon changing and improving one's own ways of living, and beginning with the mantra of “it's all my fault” — rather than immediately pointing fingers and telling everyone else to change — we can break down cultural barriers, inspire action, and make much more rapid progress to reduce the immense suffering that exists in this world. Directly or indirectly, it affects us all. It's time for a new paradigm; a new type of culture that incorporates the interests of all global citizens. It's All My Fault lays out how we got here, how we can move forward in this journey, and delves deep into personal insights and vivid experiences from the author's life. It describes a practical set of innovative ideas that have the potential to ultimately lead to the day in which many of our greatest challenges — such as poverty, homelessness, and underemployment — become a thing of the past.

"A slow-building murder tale, but the complicated hero and serpentine wrap-up make it a worthy mystery." - Kirkus Review Felix Allaben is a haunted man. Haunted by the memory of his wife, gunned down in a mugging gone awry. Haunted by his responsibilities as a single father of a teenage girl. And, as Bloody Lane opens, haunted by the murder of Curtis Gwynn, an ex-cop whom Allaben had known when both served in the Baltimore Police Department. Gwynn is found dressed in the uniform of a Civil War re-enactor on the hallowed grounds of the Antietam battlefield--shot through the head. Allaben is a special investigator with the Department of Justice. He has been summoned by a shadowy official in Washington to get to the bottom of the crime. Working in tandem with the local sheriff, Felix weaves his way through a maze of leads, lies, and dead ends in his effort to make sense of this first death and of others that unexpectedly follow. In so doing, he comes up against an armed, active, neo-Confederate hate group operating out of a local gun club and bent on domestic terrorism. The suspects are many. Among them are an unstable realtor with whom Gwynn was having an affair; her alcoholic, hot-headed husband; their son, a Civil War enthusiast who's been upset by the unsavory lifestyles of his parents; her brother, a rising politician, and a retired Navy contractor, as well as other members of the aforementioned militia. Bloody Lane is set in and around Frederick, Maryland, a small city with an intriguing past. The infamous Civil War battle of Antietam, fought nearby, yielded the single bloodiest day in American history. The conclusion is both violent and unsettling.

FUN FACT: "Becoming Zara" is a standalone novella, but if you're following the character of Samantha Bradford as she crosses off the items of her bucket list (the Single Wide Female Series), this is the book that Samantha publishes to complete her bucket list item #18 (Publish a Book). Note: You can download #1 Learn Pole Dancing of that series for free. *** Hi, I'm Zara...warrior princess. I don't usually tell that last bit to strangers, but I say it in my head all the time. It's one of the many mantras that have helped me to get to where I am today. And believe me when I say that I've come a long way. Besides, if you're a woman and you happen to have ever struggled with issues of self-esteem, we're probably gonna be fast friends anyway, so I won't hold anything (much) back. Oh, and Zara wasn't the name I was born with-but you'll find out more about that in the book. I don't know about you, but my own struggle with my weight has held me back a bit in life. And my self-esteem took a real nose dive after my fiance dumped me-via text, no less. (I know, right? Jerk!...but I don't usually dwell on things in the past, so let's just move right along from that, shall we?) So, I'm still a work-in-progress for sure, but I'm really starting to figure it all out-how to be more of who I'm meant to be every day-including the bumps, the lumps, and my bruised ego along the way. Oh and I love my sisterhood (more about that later) - the women who join me in believing that we are all capable of being strong, amazing, warrior princesses-just the way we are right now."
