 Mad Money - Linda L Richards
Genre - Financial Thriller 
Rating - PG
4.1 (21 reviews)
Free until 24 February 2013
Mad Money, the first novel to in the acclaimed Madeline Carter series, now in e-book format!

"Murder, mayhem, humor, romance, and great characters make this first book in the Madeline Carter series hard to put down." -- Booklist

When her best friend is killed in front of her at the New York City brokerage where they both work, Madeline Carter quits her job and aims for a safer life on the warm coast. But life has a way of interrupting the best laid plans and it isn’t long before Madeline’s quiet new life of day trading in the Malibu hills is interrupted by kidnapping, murder and a run-in with a corporate psychopath.

“Mad Money does what many have tried and few have managed — to turn stock swindles and corporate crime into a fun, roller-coaster read. The key is Richards’ strong, witty, and likable heroine, recovering stock broker Madeline Carter.” — bestselling author Alafair Burke

“… filled with enough corruption to keep the reader turning pages. Anyone who dabbles in the stock market will be enthralled with the development of this plot, as well as frightened. Interesting and smart, and easily worth the price of admission, this is a recommended read.” — Donna Padilla, New Mystery Reader

“A likable heroine, a strong supporting cast, knowledgeable insight into the world of stocks without going overboard, and murder and mayhem in LA add up to a hugely enjoyable read.” — Sarah Weinman, mystery critic

“...Mad Money is no lightweight airplane read; instead, we have the fiendishly complex tale of corporate swindles, surreal glimpses into the world of the stock-trader .... For a debut novel — bravo! If you need a fast-paced and fun read Mad Money is for you as it is a light in the noir and far, far from light-weight.” — Ali Karim, Crime Spree Magazine

WHEN TEENAGE GIRLS VANISH in what was once considered a safe Louisiana bayou town, the lives of four desperate young locals take unexpected turns, begging the question: Do you ever truly know those closest to you?

When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes from rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, best friend HALEY LANDRY's relationship with her boyfriend becomes increasingly strained. To make matters worse, her impressionable younger sister BECKY has begun idolizing an impetuous, seductive 15-year- old who's encouraging her to do dangerous things.

Meanwhile, ERICA DUVALL, a reclusive 19-year-old aspiring writer, befriends Haley. Ten years earlier, Erica’s mother abandoned her, leaving her with the womanizing used car salesman father she loathes. She’s decided to write a novel based on Tiffany’s disappearance; a novel that she hopes will lead to a reunion with her estranged novelist mother.

RACHEL ANDERSON, a 36-year-old mother of two, is having trouble coming to terms with her husband's affair with the missing girl—a relationship that supposedly ended shortly before Tiffany’s disappearance. What’s more, she comes to the realization that someone is watching her family through the large back windows of her house.

A DISTURBED MAN also lives in the area. Ever since his mother’s murder four years earlier, he’s been raising his insolent teenage sister, ALLIE, who sleeps with truck drivers for money. He considers women to be dangerous—and his world revolves around his fear and hatred for them. He’s terrified of his sister, knowing she’s intent on pushing him over the edge.

Embrace of the Daimon: Healing through the Subtle Energy Body/ Jungian Psychology and the Dark Feminine
Embrace of the Daimon - Sandra Lee Dennis
Genre - Non Fiction
Rating - R
5 (6 reviews)
Free until 23 February 2013
Bringing a spiritual context to what most disturbs us, Sandra Dennis explores an eruption of strange and wild, bestial and violent characters that she calls ‘daimons’ from the unconscious that precipitated a descent into the dark recesses of her own psyche. 

Today, we use "daimon" as the equivalent of "demon," and understandably so – these invasions of the unconscious often scare us -- but daimons were originally the spirit messengers who connect the heavens to the material world. The initially terrifying images that come to us when we are ready to move to the next stage of life invite our engagement. 

They bring outcast soul qualities into consciousness that promise to deepen our sense of communion with life. When we welcome the exiles embedded in our sensuality, sexuality, power and destructiveness, these aspects we most reject and revile in ourselves reveal their visionary gifts, opening us to a larger world. 

Dennis sets her discussion of these visitations from the primeval psyche in the context of the Jungian process of individuation. She elaborates the little-understood second stage of this three-step unfolding, that she names the unio corporalis, the reunion of the soul with the body. As psyche meets soma, this reconciliation of opposites offers profound healing.

Just as millions of people live healthy lives with chronic diseases like diabetes and even HIV, Tracy Krulik shares how she learned to do the same in her fight against cancer -- using her bike and a plant-based diet as weapons.
