In “The Wolf’s Moon,” author Patrick Jones creates a spellbinding tale of an ancient animal that haunts the foothill towns of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. An unknown group of scientists has genetically engineered a Dire Wolf into the present day. Allegedly extinct, the ferocious beast preys upon the innocent people of Maple Hills.

To hunt and kill the beast, the town folk will have to rely on the tracking feats of Mark Lansdowne. He is a reluctant hero, still mourning the loss of his wife to illness. Relying on his rescue dogs and indefatigable hunting skills, Mark will set out on foot in search of the mysterious beast. Yet the hunter’s personal history and romantic entanglements will come back to haunt him during his search for the vicious animal.

Accompanying him on the hunt is his pal Warren Skruggs, who knew Mark when he was known as Michael Linden, a chapter of his history that he prefer be kept to the past. Adding to the intrigue are two beautiful, intelligent women who aid the hunter in his quest. Their looks and smarts would make the Bond Girls envious but Mark is still a grieving widower, unsure of how to move forward.
With its mixture of high-stakes hunting and personal and romantic intrigue, “The Wolf’s Moon” is a page-turner that will keep the reader captivated with its unexpected story twists. The thriller suspense novel is a real story grounded in the life and folkways of the Ozark Mountains not just another unbelievable werewolf story grafted onto the romance of the South.

He had everything a man might dream of; wealth, power and the choice of hundreds of the most beautiful women in his Empire. Why then did he forsake his harem for the love of just one woman, and marry her in defiance of the centuries-old code of the Osmanlis?

This is the astonishing story of Suleiman, the one they called the Magnificent, and the woman he loved.
Suleiman controlled an empire of thirty million people, encompassing twenty different languages. As a man, he was an enigma; he conquered all who stood against him with one of the world's first full time professional armies - yet he liked to write poetry; he ravaged half of Europe but he rebuilt Istanbul in marble; he had teams of torturers and assassins ready to unleash at a whim - yet history remembers him as a great lawmaker.

''Harem' literally means 'Forbidden': Forbidden to men. Once the Sultan was the only man - the only complete man - who could pass through its iron-studded doors. But what was that world really like?
For a woman living in the Harem the only way out was to somehow find her way into the Sultan's bed and bear him a son. But the young Sultan was often away at war and when he did return he neglected his harem for just one favourite wife. But one young Russian concubine inside his seraglio was not content to allow fate decide the course of her life. She was clever and she was ruthless. And she had a plan.

Into this world are drawn two unforgettable characters; a beautiful young Italian noblewoman, captured by corsairs and brought to the Harem as a concubine; and the eunuch who loved her once, long ago, in Venice.

Loved her? He still stopped loving her .

From medieval Venice to the slave markets of Algiers, from the mountains of Persia to the forbidden seraglio of the Ottoman's greatest sultan, this is a tale of passion and intrigue in a world where nothing is really as it seems.

Rating - PG

The awareness, peace of mind and joy that you are yearning for – is available to you now.
Anything real that has been obtained by religious leaders or spiritual gurus is also obtainable to you. In fact, awareness, peace of mind and joy are not so much obtained as they are realized and remembered. All knowledge resides within you now. Nothing that is given to one is withheld from another. God does not play favorites. God loves all, equally and always.

Love is all you are, it is your foundation. People are taught, and have the perception that they must build on their foundation to experience peace of mind, success and joy. How and what you build on your foundation is up to you, it is your free will. However, if you simply extend what you truly are, you will create more beauty than anything that could or has ever been built. Your base, your foundation, is perfect and you need not add nor subtract anything from perfection.

There are many paths you may choose to take in order to realize awareness, peace of mind and joy in the present moment. The journey will be as complicated as you choose to make it, or as easy as you allow it to be.

Look within, and move towards those paths that offer you peace of mind and joy, and are in alignment with your true self. Do not concern yourself with the paths others may be trying to force upon you, or what others say is the correct or acceptable way to grow. Within your heart, there lies a memory of your true self. It is this memory you search for, and it is this memory you will remember. All truth lies within you. You may have temporarily forgotten this, but you have now chosen to remember.

You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey from Perception to Knowledge, Peace of Mind and Joy is an incredibly inspiring book filled with simple, yet very effective, strategies for remembering your true self, and embodying awareness, peace of mind and joy - in your day to day life.

A STORY ABOUT THE PRESSURES YOUNG GIRLS FACE...
When she gets back from spring break, Monica notices that her friendship with April has changed ever since she got a boyfriend. The time she spends with Monica isn't as fun as it used to be. April is stressed out about her boyfriend and other times she's happy. She talks of nothing else even though the two friends are usually planning activities for April's birthday.

Quote from the book:
"Instead of talking about her birthday party plans, she just kept repeating herself as if her world depended on him for happiness."

Monica tells her friend she thinks that she is too young to have a boyfriend because they have some growing up to do! She talks to her mother, and feels at peace with her decision not to date, but the next day at school Monica has to deal with the pressures of standing up for what she feels is right. She is frustrated that her friendship with April is going downhill, but she doesn't know how to get her to realize it.

Monica thinks that having a boyfriend sounds like a roller coaster! Is there anyone that can help? Is she the only one that doesn't want to have a boyfriend?

Written and illustrated by thirteen-year-old Jessica Arnold, "Do I Need a Boyfriend" addresses the topic of dating from a young girl's perspective. Discusses the real pressures that even 11-13 year old girls face to fit in when it comes to boys.

She can only communicate to him in the written word, and informs him of a young woman he must save, Laura, who may be the new Eve to mankind.
