MFA in a Box: A Why to Write Book - John Rember
Genre – Creative Writing
Rating – PG
4.9 (11 reviews)
Free until 18 November 2012
Eric Hoffer Book Award Grand Prize Short List, and 1st Runner Up - Reference Category (2011)

Midwest Book Awards, Finalist - Reference Category (2011)

Nautilus Book Awards, Silver Winner - Writing/Creative Process Category (2011)

Part craft talk, part philosophical tome, part memoir, MFA in a Box is not so much a book about how to write as it is about whyto write. In chapters that explore the relationships between the writer and love, grief, place, family, race, violence, and other topics, Rember helps writers dive deep into their own writing. He tells them how they can breathe down there and how they can get back. 

"A big part of writing involves grappling with the terrors and discouragements that come when you have writing skills but can't project yourself or your work into the future," says Rember. "My hope is that MFA in a Box will help writers balance the despair of writing with the joy of writing. It's a book designed to help you to find the courage to put truth into words and to understand that writing is a life-and-death endeavor--but that nothing about a life-and-death endeavor keeps it from being laugh-out-loud funny."

"More than an advice book with a catchy title...Rember engages his readers in some of the issues every writer faces...not as problems to be overcome but as issues to be understood. - The (Portland) Oregonian

"Witty, audacious, and wise." Robin Metz, author of Unbidden Angel, and winner of the Rainer Maria Rilke International Poetry Award

The Grimoire turns its own pages and can answer any question asked of it, and Kara Magari is its next target. 

Kara has no idea what she's getting herself into when she stumbles across the old book while hiking a hidden trail. Once she opens it, she's thrown into Ourea: a beautiful world full of terrifying things that want the Grimoire's secrets. Everyone in this new world is trying to find her, and most want to control the new-found power the book bestows upon her. Even if Kara does escape, Ourea will only drag her back.

Braeden Drakonin grew up in Ourea, and all he’s ever known of life is lying. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. He has one question to ask the book—one question that can fix everything in his broken world—and he’s not letting Kara out of his sight until he gets an answer.
There’s no going back now.

The Schliemann Legacy – D. A. Greystone
Genre – Spy, Thriller
Rating – PG13
4.1 (15 reviews)
Free until 20 November 2012
1873 — Heinrich Schliemann discovered ancient treasure in Turkey which proved the existence of Troy.
1943 — the treasure disappeared from Nazi Germany.

1981 — Henri Mardinaud, international information broker, discovers the treasure in the possession of Friedrich Heiden, ex-commander of Majdanek, a Nazi extermination camp. Using his network, the master gamesman positions his players in a race for the treasure and the Nazi:
David Morritt, recently retired Mossad agent and survivor of Majdanek.
Katrina Kontoravdis, a disgraced Greek intelligence operative hoping to redeem herself.
Duman, a vicious Turkish terrorist who will do anything to achieve his objectives.

From Europe, to Heiden's fortress in Colombia, to a secluded estate in Jamaica, Mardinaud uses the hatred between Greece and Turkey and the horror of the holocaust to fuel his twisted game.

More than the treasure, survival becomes the ultimate prize in this battle of haunting memories, revenge, and love.

Why Leadership Sucks – Miles Anthony Smith
Genre- Business
Rating – G
4.8 (6 reviews)
Free until 17 November 2012
Do you wish you were in leadership?
Or are you frustrated with being in leadership?
Why does leadership suck?

It sucks because real leadership is hard and requires selfless service. It sucks because the buck stops here, meaning it is ultimately the leader’s responsibility to deal with all of the crap. It requires less effort to “lead” in the harsh, dictatorial, selfish way that is so prevalent today instead of balancing our hard and soft nature. The alternative is servant leadership or Level 5 leadership. This kind of leadership is uncomfortable, humbling, self-denying, painful, and counter-intuitive; nonetheless, it is the only kind of leadership that brings lasting results, genuine happiness, and true self-fulfillment.

So, why should you read my book "Why Leadership Sucks"?
1. To help you understand why you are frustrated.
2. To challenge what you have learned about leadership.
3. To give you practical action steps to practice on your leadership journey.

Born in the Highlands, Kuini thought his life was simple. You hunt and you fight, defending your towns against the raids of the Lowlanders and then raiding their lands in turn. His father was the Warriors’ Leader, and he wanted to be just like him.

Yet, Texcoco, the mighty Capital of the Lowlands, seemed incredibly beautiful, sparkling, its pyramids magnificent. A friendship with the Lowlander boy, the First Son of the Texcoco Emperor, seemed harmless in the beginning. They were just boys, and their clandestine meetings were always fun, providing great entertainment. 

However, on the day Kuini agrees to finally enter the magnificent city, it would all change. He expected to get into trouble, but he could not foresee the extent of the trouble and, worst of all, he did not expect to uncover hidden secrets concerning his own family.
