BOOK EXCERPT:

The story is set on the high seas where a gas tanker is high-jacked by terrorist under the control of the Senate, who put it on tow to a high-jacked cruise liner, which is used as a human shield. The terrorists want to sail the convoy to New York harbor and blow it up, causing devastation in an act of revenge. The only chance for Jeff and his friends have for saving themselves is if the passengers take back the two ships before they reach American waters; otherwise, the Americans will blow the gas tanker up, killing all the passengers. The main action takes place off Sable Island near Nova Scotia, the notorious area known as the Atlantic graveyard, where history will tell there has been the loss of over three hundred ships. The flashback of when Jeff first came in contact with the deadly Senate, he was a well-known local environmentalist and was wanted for terrorist crimes he did not commit. The only way he can prove his innocence and stay alive is by pretending to be dead, return to a devastated Estuary area, search for his family and the truth. The evidence of corruption he finds that threatens to destabilize the government must be exposed at all costs Jeff is hunted by a professional killer of the Senate called Wilson, who must destroy him and the evidence before Jeff can expose it. In this part of the story, the action is set against a background of the aftermath of an explosion of biblical proportions at a gas terminal in the Estuary. The thought-provoking reality is that it could happen for real, and the establishment knows it, and they have to plan for the worst-case scenario.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Does it feel like God has stopped listening to your prayers? Do you approach prayer with confidence or with confusion? Perhaps you have given up organized prayer entirely, resorting to monotonous, habitual, shallow repetitions--day after day after day. This work will address these and other questions we all have about communicating with God. In these pages you will find straight talk about substantial pitfalls along the road to authentic prayer. Dr. Tom Hauff provides an in-depth investigation into the ways we pray, the goals prayer should accomplish, and how we respond to God's answers. You will find that God has not stopped listening and that prayer does not have to be confusing. It can be vibrant and life-giving, productive and encouraging, but there is a key to such a prayer life. In this book, in an easily accessible way, Dr. Hauff unfolds this foundational key: We genuinely communicate in prayer only when we learn to listen honestly to God.

A one-of-a-kind collection showcasing the energy of new African literature Coming at a time when Africa and African writers are in the midst of a remarkable renaissance, Gods and Soldiers captures the vitality and urgency of African writing today. With stories from northern Arabic-speaking to southern Zulu-speaking writers, this collection conveys thirty different ways of approaching what it means to be African. Whether about life in the new urban melting pots of Cape Town and Luanda, or amid the battlefield chaos of Zimbabwe and Somalia, or set in the imaginary surreal landscapes born out of the oral storytelling tradition, these stories represent a striking cross section of extraordinary writing. Including works by J. M. Coetzee, Chimamanda Adichie, Nuruddin Farah, Binyavanga Wainaina, and Chinua Achebe, and edited by Rob Spillman of Tin House magazine, Gods and Soldiers features many pieces never before published, making it a vibrant and essential glimpse of Africa as it enters the twenty-first century.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Author Shideler Harpes career in journalism and public relations spanned more than 60 years and gave him opportunities to connect with bums and barons (that would be hotel honcho Barron Hilton), perverts and presidents, inventors and introverts, hookers and housewives, charlatans and champions. In his new book, People said, You oughta write a book! So I did., he notes that A few were despicable, all were interesting. Harpe began his long romance with writing at age ten, as a reporter and then editor of the occasional journal that covered news at the elementary school he attended in Indianapolis, Indiana. Since that modest beginning, he has worked on newspapers from New York City to Honolulu. His prodigious newspaper and PR output includes just about everything that can be set in type. The result is a collection of observations, interviews, essays, commentary, short fiction, and great thoughts each a slice of his life which the author shares to entertain and enlighten the reader. You will read about: When Harpe met Marilyn Monroe. Or maybe not....How a mild-mannered New Yorkers stand against crime has failed to result in a simple public safety measure....An obsessive little boy who drove his mother bonkers and his father to hiding in the garage....Colonel Tom Parker, who discovered and managed Elvis Presley, and made both of them very rich....Rousing adventure that pits heroic men against the cruel and unrelenting sea....One mans premature elation, followed by intense disappointment....Putting fun back into funerals....Ray Bradburys Bicentennial tribute that pleased a very small audience.
