Hello,

My book, Theo Mallier: Growing Pains, by Andrew Culyer, is about a man from from a Newcastle council estate who runs for prime minister. It's a satirical, everyman story, which a lot of people in the country might identify with (self-serving politicians, etc). All reviews so far have told me that his Common Manifesto is a must-read, and should be implemented.

Thanks, Andrew Culyer

It’s not only a doctor’s medical school education, residency training, and launching into practice that’s so demanding, but what may be creeping into the professional’s personal life along the way ...

"A Physician’s Plight is an intriguing read that shouldn’t be missed for readers of personal memoirs."

My tale is called Everpearl... Everpearl is an adventurous tale of loss, obsessive love and self determination. When Becca Riggs, working as a park ranger, is involved in a freak boating accident, she finds herself on the shores of another realm. A harrowing world of timeless beauty, matched by unequaled violence and brutal repression, perpetuated by an evil ruler against the gentle people of Everpearl. Becca soon finds that she is the center of attention and is quickly befriended by a handsome, soft spoken man named Abel and a sweet humble boy named Joah, who help to steer her away from the dangerous pitfalls of Everpearls archaic customs.
Becca is found on the beach by a group of men and Abel, the best looking man she has ever seen and Joah, a boy that she takes under her wing like a little brother. The more time she spends with them the more she realizes a mentally intuitive connection with them. They are amazed at some of the things that she can do. They stand in awe as she bravely swims out to a wrecked cargo ship and retrieves a fire ax that she uses for her own protection, with good results. She is summoned to the village of Dawns Retreat, where the vile king, Phoenix tries to take possession of her. Dawns Retreat is under the domination of Phoenix and his sons. Here she also meets Meno, a man who is aggressively attracted to her and is Abel’s greatest challenge for Becca’s attention. Becca learns to deal with each one of them, either by matching wits, the power of persuasion and sometimes improvising with her own body. Between Abel, Meno, Joah and a few other males constantly vying for her notice, Becca has her hands full, juggling the diverse personalities and egos of Everpearl. She does have concerns about her own behavior. She easily succumbs to the use of violent actions to get her own way. If that doesn’t work she is not too shy to use her own seductive charm and sex as a tool to get what she needs.

My début novel is called, Crimes Against Magic

It’s been almost ten years since Nathan Garrett woke on a cold warehouse floor with nothing but a gun, a sword, and no idea of who he was or how he got there. His only clue … a piece of paper with his name on it. Since then, he’s discovered he’s a powerful sorcerer and has used his abilities to work as a thief for hire. But he’s never stopped hunting for his true identity, and those who erased his memory have never stopped hunting for him. When the barrier holding his past captive begins to crumble, Nathan swears to protect a young girl who is key to his enemy’s plans. But with his enemies closing in, and everyone he cares about becoming a target for their wrath, Nathan is forced to choose between the life he’s built for himself and the one buried deep inside him.

Crimes Against Magic is an Urban Fantasy set in modern day London with Historical flashbacks to early fifteenth century France. It’s the first in a series of books called the Hellequin Chronicles, which shows the life of sorcerer Nathan (Nate) Garrett.

My eBook "White Flowers of Yesterday," is a historical fiction. The story takes place in Paris and covers the period from 1711 to 1724. The heroine is hoodwinked by the Duke of Orleans and her baby is kidnapped by her detractors to buy her silence. The book starts with her return to Paris in search of her son. She follows the most minuscule of clues that inevitably reveal the true political intrigue and nefarious motives behind her exile.
The book is priced @99 cents. Please take a peep into the 'Look Inside' feature and give me a feedback..
Thanks.

The Charms of Fire Island

Divorced for several years, Michael Hubbard's finally found another someone special. Actually, she found him, while boating on Long Island's Great South Bay, and spending summer weekends at Atlantique, Fire Island.

Jill’s the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. She's also smart, has a wonderful personality, and to top it all off, an incredible lover. There's only one problem - she's married - to an abusive husband who's threatened to kill her if she ever tries to leave him.

It’s a story of jealousy, friendship, heated sex and physical conflict - with Michael’s best friend Vinny D’Angelo bringing a good share of the muscle - And the crazy Carbone twins Frank and Joe, along with Vinny’s cousin Fat Tony, bringing most of the laughs.

An Experimental Guide To Eternal Life”
The KGB And Psychiatric Abuse – An Eyewitness Account

I’d greatly appreciate your review and comments, I was one of the 24 locked in the Soviet psychiatric hospitals and prisons, all because of our faith. I survived, but some didn’t. Fit and healthy before, all under the age of twenty-five, they died from large doses of psychotropic drugs, from force feeding, from tuberculosis and malnutrition. The Human Rights News Brief (Munich) referred to this group as “truly prisoners of conscience”. Resistance International (France) described them as “completely peaceful non-violent group with no political goals”. But instead of fighting real crime in a country riddled with corruption, the Soviet authorities made no excuses for fabricated court cases, detention in psychiatric hospitals and violent suppression of these innocent lives. This account has never been published before, it is a tribute to these forever young people, but there is much more in it about the USSR, about the choice between good and evil and about the ultimate fight – the fight with oneself. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

If you enjoy humor, rants, the law of attraction, spiritual and personal development, esoteric information, astral travel, helping people, real estate, and just life in general, check out "The Real Estate Blues." It's a lengthy series of short essays centered around real estate sales and humor with a message incorporated in each essay. There's plenty of entertainment value in this piece written by a Ph.D. in Psychology who's made an excellent living in real estate sales for over 20 years. You're guaranteed never to take a real estate salesperson for granted ever again!

Thanks for the opportunity. My book is titled "Hearth: Exile" by M. R. Jenks and it is a Fantasy set across New York City during the holiday season. Here is the link:

http://www.amazon.com/Hearth-Exile-ebook/dp/B007UB0RKK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335292982&sr=8-1

"A man awakens to find himself half-in, half-out of a trashcan in a back alley behind the Boathouse Restaurant in Central Park, New York. He has no idea who he is, where he is, or how he got there. He doesn’t even know his own name, except that it begins with a ‘Br’ sound. In Book One of the Hearth trilogy, this man wanders the streets in search of his identity, his memories, and his name. He is joined along the way by two companions, an orphan girl named Page, and a similarly memory-challenged woman named Lauren. Together they embark on a journey across the Christmas landscape of New York City, seeking answers to an unfolding and ever-growing mystery, watched over by Sister Regina, the head of the Convent where they are staying . . . and as they begin to find answers, as they begin to discover more and more clues to Lauren and Brinn’s identities, something stalks them – an ancient and deadly Evil from before the dawn of recorded history. A clock is ticking now, and they better solve the mystery of their origins and who they are soon. For it is not just they and everyone around them who are threatened; the entire fate of humanity and of two worlds is in peril, unless they find answers, and find answers soon."
