The Glimpse

Austin Kelly is about to learn a lesson: Be careful when you pray for God to change you, because He answers prayer. Even though he's a Sunday School teacher, Austin's faith in Jesus Christ is no match for his fear of rejection from others. Lizzie Kelly has more courage than her husband, but struggles to find fulfillment and meaning in her job at their church. The couple's friends aren't faring much better. Computer tech Daniel Cabrera fights disappointment with the direction his career has taken, and even more frustration with the church youth he teaches. His wife, Jackie, strives to maintain a sense of control over her life, but it's quickly faltering. Faced with churches dying across New York City, the four Christian teachers have a cry in their hearts for their lives to make a difference. God answers their cry by throwing them into a world that looks like a nightmare version of the United States. 

Everything is so similar, yet totally different, starting with the fact that Christians are nearly extinct after decades of persecution. They soon discover it is a fascist nation, where anyone who professes faith in Christ risks their life. The four travelers encounter a group of teenagers that turn out to be one of the last surviving churches, led by their high school teacher, Eric Peterson. With no visible way to get home, Austin, Lizzie and their friends join the underground church in their fight to spread the Gospel while avoiding the National Police. Their task is made even more difficult when revival breaks out in the local high school and draws unwanted attention, but they know they can't stop until their work is complete and the Lord makes a way for them to go home...if there is one..

The Busy Writer's KickStart Program
Genre – Self-Help
Rating – G
4.7 (12 reviews)
Free until 23 September 2012
Why do writers stop writing? Is it writer's block? If not, what's going on? How can it be that one day you're sailing along, writing up a storm and enjoying every moment of it... and the next day, you can't think of a thing to write? No matter how long you sit there, nothing comes. If it's only one day, not much damage is done - but if it continues, it could mean not only the end of your book, but the end of your writing career. The longer you are away from writing, the harder it is to pick up the threads and start again. It's not just a matter of losing touch with your characters, or forgetting where you were going with the plot. It's very much a psychological thing: you start to get that I-Just-Can't-Do-It feeling. ("I don't know why I thought I could write a book in the first place...") 

People ask you how the book is coming along, and you smile brightly and say "Fine!" before swiftly changing the subject. Or you brush it off with something like "Oh, I've been so busy lately I just haven't had time to work on it as much as I'd like... next month things should calm down." What if things don't calm down next month? What will you do? Give up your dream? No. You shouldn't have to do that. Before you decide that you made a huge mistake even starting your book, you need to work out what's going wrong and how to fix it. "Writer's block" isn't some kind of disease; it simply means that for now, you can't bring yourself to write. When you take a good long look at your situation, you might be surprised at how you can methodically work through any problems and get your writing flowing again. The Busy Writer's KickStart Program gives you an 8-Step Plan to get your writing on track again - or to set you up for success from the very start, if you're a beginner. You will learn:
  • How to clear your life from physical, mental and emotional clutter
  • How to treat your writing like a project, so you stay on track
  • How to set yourself up for success by changing the way you look at time
  • Typical roadblocks for writers and how to get past them
  • The importance of feedback, support and rewards
  • Strategies for improving your technique
  • Insights into plotting and characters
  • How to keep yourself heading along the road to success
You can follow an 8-week plan, assigning one week to each step, or modify the KickStart Program to suit your way of life and your writing agenda. What Kind of Results Can You Expect? Well, that depends on how much effort you put into it, and your own personal circumstances - but this is what just one of our happy users had to say: "The Kickstart Program motivated me to clean up my office (at last) and to sit down and write every day. Your suggestion to think in terms of writing chunks of action, or scenes, rekindled my book. I was so busy living the book as I wrote it fast, I forgot I had writer's block." [Viv Adams]
Faith: 4 Week Mini Bible Study
Genre – G
Rating – Christian, Nonfiction
4.6 (14 reviews)
Free until 23 September 2012
In this four week mini Bible Study you will examine your faith and what it means to have faith in God. He said to them, "Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20 Our faith begins with what we know and believe about God.

Our faith will carry us how far we are willing to let it take us. Faith is a choice and we need to begin by choosing to believe in Jesus and His power to move mountains, heal the sick, and save us from all our sins through His sacrifice on the cross. When we believe in God we then learn to walk in faith and trust God. But first we must believe, and it's up to us, we can either choose to believe in Him or not. But faith will mean nothing until we believe with all our heart that God is who He says He is. ***Updated*** Now includes a weekly memory verse reading plan help you memorize God's word on the subject of FAITH!

Mary Indiana
Genre – Literary Fiction, Women's Fiction
Rating – PG
4.8 (13 reviews)
Free until 23 September 2012
She's eighteen and pregnant, but with a twist--the new kid in town's barely been kissed! Could she really be a virgin? The town doc swears it's true. There's just GOTTA be an explanation. But it's not coming from Mary, as she's quickly dubbed. She seems to have taken a vow of silence. So it's up to the citizens of Bellingham to make their own miracles—or at least their own myths. The new celeb is instantly surrounded by hangers-on, miracle-seekers, paparazzi, preachers, and promoters—to hilarious effect.

 But are they dealing with an angel here, or someone playing an angle? Con, in a word, or icon? And by the way, what's up with that strange light in the sky? Could be she came off a spaceship. Neither sacred nor profane, nor even paranormal, Campbell's beautifully written book is at once funny and wise, a savvy story of how myths are made, how minds twist and turn around the extraordinary, how the human organism just can't help grabbing for the supernatural, whether out of the spiritual need for a miracle or a mundane desire for cash. Think Barbara Kingsolver, Margaret Atwood, Anne Tyler, only really really funny.

Rating – PG-13
4.3 (34 reviews)
Free until 23 September 2012
Although raised by single metahuman parents, Stephanie, Rael, and Lance weren't prepared for the sudden and shocking event that thrust them into a night of upheaval as they cope with their metamorphosis into superhumans. The meteor shower that altered the heroes also mutated many others in Metrocity, causing a scene of chaos at Iron Cross General Hospital as Lance and Stephanie are captured by law enforcement, and Rael must free them. The friends join the Homeland Extraordinary Response Organization (H.E.R.O.), and seek to stop a mutant named Shrinker as she gathers new supers to build an army of bloodthirsty mutants in her plan to cause anarchy. Her evil squad kidnaps normal humans to feed those mutants, and it becomes a race against time to find the anarchists before they murder the people.

 While searching for the villain's base of operations, the group must learn their powers and overcome the problems associated with telepathy, a strong blood thirst, and strength capable of crushing steel under one's fingers. They also begin to take part as heroes in the city, and discover that having powers is not as easy as it appears - in heroic actions or in normal life. H.E.R.O. – Metamorphosis is the first novel in a growing series of action-based superhero novels based on the Metrocity division of H.E.R.O. It acts as the introductory novel to the supers and how three of the main characters fight crime and deal with disasters in the city. The novel leads the way into the H.E.R.O. series as a growing roster of H.E.R.O. agents take part in various events and disasters.
