YOU CAN BECOME EXCEPTIONAL 
Can reading 10 pages REALLY change or transform your life? Yes. Actually simply becoming aware of certain insights has the power to forever change how you feel about yourself. For example: You are naturally brilliant! Your brain contains 1,000,000,000,000 neurons. If just your neurons were stretched end to end, they would reach all the way to the moon and back. 

You are also totally unique! You may not be aware of your special talents and skills because they’re so easy for you. Learn an immediate way to recognize and power up your natural strengths. Plus research has now proven “genius” is not born – it is actually a created state! And scientists now know that creativity does not come in a single insight – it’s a chain reaction of many tiny sparks while developing an idea. Learn how to light that first spark. 

Claim insights that can immediately provide the ultimate self-help -- become exceptional. The author of this insightful 10-page book, Dr. Jill Ammon-Wexler, is doctor of positive psychology and a 45-year pioneer brain/mind and neuro-psychology researcher. The author of over 20 books, she also provides mind power training for organizations and individuals from around the world.

2006: after decades of sadness and mourning the girl that got away, Shawn has a chance meeting with Dawn that might change his life forever... again. Can the sweet bond of first love not only survive, but flourish?

course true love, will always remain the same.

How Well Do You Know Your Parents?

While going through their mom's belongings following her death, Rita and Sandifer Ferguson discover an envelope buried inside her chest of drawers.  Frail-looking, the envelope had an embossed seal across the back.  Folded inside was a divorce certificate.  Listed on the certificate was a name they didn't recognize and one they certainly did - mom's.

As they sat in the small bedroom, the one their parents had shared for over thirty years, they were speechless.  Finally, Rita spoke up.  "Did you know?"

The question hung in the air.  Neither Rita or Sandifer had known about their mom's first marriage.  For some reason, she had kept this fading envelope with a certificate of divorce tucked away in her bedroom.  

Why?  And who was this fellow she had married and divorced in less than a year?
Lesser Angels tells the story of two siblings - a brother and a sister - who took divergent paths as adults and find themselves in a common pursuit of their family's history: to find the man on the divorce certificate.

Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost is not a story of spooks and goblins. It's a powerful story about two men from two very different times. One man is mortal, the other is immortal. One is painfully ordinary, the other world famous.

Jack Phelan is a forty-two-year-old underachiever who lives in South Florida. Although he mows lawns for a living, he’s not what you might expect. He’s got an exceptionally sharp mind and is a self-educated Hemingway aficionado.

After Jack gets into an unlikely accident he's flown by helicopter to the nearest hospital, where he remains in a coma for four days. But somehow, minutes after he blacks out, he finds himself in Key West, Florida--rubbing shoulders with an aged Ernest Hemingway.

Hem has been sent back down to help determine whether or not Jack has what it takes to write a book for “The Main Man above the clouds.” But what Ernest doesn’t know is that the book is to be about him. And that its purpose is to change the world’s perception of the swaggering, hard-knuckled, macho myth he has become.

Over the next four days, Jack Phelan and Ernest Hemingway travel to the legendary author’s old haunts and meet up with many of his long gone friends. Some of these reunions are rollicking good times, others are highly emotional tests of strength. But wait. When their time together comes to an end, the story is still not over. That’s when things really get interesting.

This book weaves together the heart of Nicholas Sparks, the romance of Nora Roberts, and the charm of Debbie Macomber.

Fleeing her picture-perfect marriage among the privileged set of Brentwood and the wreckage of a failed marriage, Lily Parkins decides to move to the only place that still holds happy memories, her grandmother’s old farmhouse. The lush and majestic setting of the Pacific Northwest calls to her and offers a place of refuge and perhaps renewal. Her grandmother has passed away, leaving the Madrona Island Bed & Breakfast Inn to Lily.

Left with only an old guestbook as her guide–a curious book full of letters, recipes, and glimpses into her family history–Lily is determined to embrace her newfound independence and recreate herself, one page at a time. With the help of the quirky island residents she has befriended, she slowly finds the strength to seek out happiness on her own terms. But as soon as she has sworn off men and is standing on her own two feet, Lily meets Ian, the alluring artist who lives next door, and her new life is suddenly thrown off course. The last thing she wants to do right now is to open her heart to another man.
Ultimately, Lily must decide if it’s worth giving up her soul for security or risking everything to follow her heart.
