Butterflies have always fascinated photographers and writers Deborah Carney and Vinny O'Hare. In this book they share the first in a series of books featuring their photographs of butterflies with quotes, proverbs and poetry about butterflies. In addition to a quote or poem on each page, the butterfly is also identified. Each of the books in our Butterfly art and photography series will have the butterflies identified.

A Butterfly Lights Beside Us
A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam...
and for a brief moment it's glory
and beauty belong to our world...
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,
we are so thankful to have seen it at all.
~ Author Unknown

All our butterfly photographs are taken of live butterflies in the wild or in sanctioned butterfly conservatories.

Weirder Than Marshmallows
Genre – Humor
Rating – PG
4.1 (13 reviews)

Ignorance, lack of common sense, and downright inhuman stupidity run rampant in this country and around the world. I watch people, and I hear stories, and they beg, beg, beg to be mocked and ridiculed.

Weirder Than Marshmallows showcases tales of stupidity and ignorance in the hopes of making people laugh. Stories are divided into five categories. 
Do Not Stop on Tracks showcases warnings that should never have to be warned. 
En Masse contains stories of mass ignorance. 
Technology Sucks explores the hazards of the technological age. 
That’s Just Freaky features Twilight Zone like tales of paranormality.
Weird Stuff is stuff that is… well, weird

All the stories in this book are true. That’s what makes the concept attention grabbing. Anybody can make up strange stories, writers do it all the time. That’s why people love Stephen King, his stories are downright weird. But these are real, they actually happened, to relatively normal human beings. There’s no fiction here. 

Thirty milligrams sodium, twenty-three grams carbohydrates, less than one gram protein. The marshmallow. Don’t look for it at your local health club. Don’t include it as part of a diet. And don’t eat more than a few at once, you’ll just end up with a stomachache.

The ingredients of a marshmallow are fairly simple. Corn syrup, sugar, dextrose, corn starch, water, gelatin, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, artificial and natural flavor, and blue 1. Most of those are self-explanatory. Corn syrup for flavor, sugar because that’s what the marshmallow is, corn starch for shelf-life, water to puff the thing out, gelatin to hold it together. Nobody knows what the compounds are for, and nobody really cares. Because, come on, why would you care what you’re putting in your mouth?

The ingredient I have a question about is the blue 1. Food coloring. Blue food coloring. Now maybe I’m wrong about this, but marshmallows are white, aren’t they? And white is achieved by a lack of color. So what color did those little puffs of sugar have to start out to require the addition of blue to neutralize it?

Anyway, I could rant about marshmallows forever. You may not agree, and you don’t have to; I think the things are weird. But this book isn’t about marshmallows, despite the ramblings above. This book is about stories. Stories that are, like marshmallows, strange, mind boggling, but somehow appealing to the public at large. Hard to explain, impossible to ignore.

Rebooting My Brain is the true story of what happens when you get yanked out of your life by a crisis?and have to get back on the ride all over again. With refreshing candor, Maria Ross shares how the relentless pace of her life came to a screeching halt when an undetected brain aneurysm ruptured and nearly killed her. Along her stubborn road back to health, her resulting cognitive and emotional challenges forced her sometimes kicking and screaming to reframe her life, her work and her identity.

With humor and heart, Ross shares what it was like being blind for six weeks, how a TV crime drama and a brain-games website played key roles in her recovery, and why a handmade necklace helped her regain her sense of self. Ross reveals the keys to her extraordinary comeback and how her perspective is forever changed, mostly for the better. Funny, touching and real, this book not only shares an inspirational story of transformation but reveals the surprising effects of brain injury…and explores the question, "How do our brains define who we are?"

The Flat Belly Solution

FREE until 21 September 2012
Most Americans agree that the belly is the one area that they would most like to change. Having a flat belly says more about your fitness than any other body part possibly could. It helps with posture and also supports the back which is something that most back sufferers never think about. Diet and exercise can help you lose weight, but if you have been down that road before, with little results, it becomes increasingly difficult to want to try again. Unlike regular dieting options, the flat belly diet can help you lose that stubborn stomach pouch, and keep it off. With a combination of focus, determination, exercise and increased diligence when it comes to exactly what you are putting inside your body, you too can have the flat stomach that you have always wished for in just over a month.

Reggie has a secret she is desperate to keep. Because there is no way she wants to become "that girl" in school all over again. And that should be fairly easy, considering her recent move to a new town where nobody knows or cares why she is living with her brother and not her parents. So why does Reggie feel drawn to Sam, who looks at her with knowing eyes? Why is it so easy to spill everything to him: the death of her parents, the blame she places on herself, and her broken hopelessness for the future? Maybe it's because Sam has a secret of his own. As Reggie learns from Sam, when life is falling apart, sometimes the only hope you have left is the kind you can find in yourself. And sometimes it takes forgiving yourself to even begin to see it.

FREE until 20 September 2012
Beautifully illustrated, 45 Ways to Excellent Life by the award winning author, Dr. Blythe Ayne, contains 45 "action meditations" to enrich your life. It's a great book for anyone who wants to begin meditation but doesn't know where to start, as well as the person who has meditated for years. Excerpts from 45 Ways to Excellent Life: Claiming a Goal Napoleon Hill said, "A goal is a dream with a deadline." Now is the time to give your dream a deadline, give it life. Little goals make big changes. Big goals are transformative. Goals you've not acted upon but that still lay nested quietly, hopefully in your heart are your gifts to yourself, and potential gifts to the world. Step out bravely. Sometimes the greatest act of bravery is facing one's self. 

 The Mystery Shop Walk into a shop you've never entered. Buy yourself something that captures your fancy, that typically you'd never buy. Do not over-think it! Enjoy the mystery and the unknown when pushing at the envelope of your "safe zone" and your routine. What about that shop intrigued you? What was it about the object you bought that drew you to it? What did it feel like to go somewhere you've never been? Was there anything that surprised you, either because you've never encountered it, or, conversely, because it was familiar and you didn't expect to find it in this shop? It is wise to enter the unknown on occasion, to remember the thrill of learning.
