What she doesn’t want...is exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have put her in the killer’s line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he cannot see or understand…and risk losing his heart in the process.

As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt don’t dare lose.

William Wyrd, an introverted history professor at long remove from his youthful days as a marine sniper, is drafted to serve overseas in the U.S. military at age thirty-nine. Already in a relationship made tenuous by the demands of dual professional careers and their own dearth of interpersonal experience, he and his wife are completely estranged by the blunder on the part of the government. But is this merely human error at work, a bad mix of circumstances—or tangling of the skein of Fate? In the tradition of Robert Ludlum's Bourne Identity and follow-up novels, this literary action-adventure tale tests whether one's present choices, and even ultimate destiny, need be determined by one's past.

CLOTHO’S LOOM tracks the struggles of a husband and wife to reunite against forces arrayed to keep them apart. Will decides to keep his reactivation a secret, and deal with the claims from his dark past alone. Assured by faceless authorities that there has been no mistake, and given a date to report, he falls in with political undesirables and succumbs to their attempt to recruit him. He soon embarks on a quest for identity that leads him around the globe. Meanwhile, his partner, pregnant and abandoned, must navigate the no-less-treacherous task of survival at a highly politicized law office, dominated by two temperamentally opposite bosses, and the glass ceiling they erect over her. The narrative proceeds in an alternating chapter structure, paralleling Will’s masculine adventures with those of a woman enduring both professional and domestic perils. The common solution: a razing of egos, and the tempering of two spirits into alloy, alchemized by the common love of a child.

Forbidden Love

Against the background of San Francisco at the time of the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906 comes a tale of love and loss. Ruth Greer is the spoiled daughter of a shipping magnate who finds a young boy that has run away from his home in Chinatown—an area of gambling parlors, opium dens, sing-song girls, as well as families trying to eke out a living. It is also home of a number of highbinder tongs, the infamous “hatchet men” of Chinese lore.

There, she meets the handsome, enigmatic leader of one such tong, the young boy’s father, and discovers he is neither as frightening, cruel, or wanton as reputation would have her believe. As Ruth’s fascination with the area grows, she finds herself pulled deeper into the intrigue of the lawless area, and Li Han-lin’s life. But the two are from completely different worlds, and when both worlds are shattered by the quake and fire that destroys San Francisco, they face their ultimate test.

JoMarie Lodge is the pseudonym of a USA Today best-selling author.

Opal gets a dirty old suitcase for her birthday. She’s not impressed. Her grandfather tells her she’ll need it, because she’s going to live with her great aunt on Broken Shell Island. Opal wonders if her grandfather hasn’t gone senile, because Broken Shell Island is a made-up magical place that their family friend Flora Fritz writes picture books about.

Oh, but the island is real. And magic.

Opal encounters magical plants, animals, and danger, too. The evening she arrives, a body is discovered in the woods, not far from where she passed through. Worse, a terrifying creature has emerged from the ground, and it hungers for the innocent, whether the people of the island believe in it or not.

While young Opal is eager to fit into her new life, perhaps becoming a witch herself, she’s mainly concerned about surviving her first week. Riding a unicorn is not quite the experience she expected, nor is her first encounter with hair-styling pixies.

Life is beautiful, magical, and perilous, on Broken Shell Island.

What is it like to become an overnight viral video star? Sixteen-year-olds become moguls and moguls fetch coffee in the dark comedy suspense thriller VIRAL - The Story of the Milkshake Girl.

Teen foster girl Erika Moradi stands up for herself by swatting the milkshake out of the hand of a sexist school bully and becomes famous in a fluke video as "The Milkshake Girl." She unwittingly incites the wrath of her high school and the darker elements of online teen networks. Her home is vandalized and her life is threatened forcing her to run away.

Producer Jack Hawkins loses his job at a network soap opera. He sinks into depression and resorts to living in his car. His only hope: he has several high concept series ideas involving some of the hottest viral stars of the moment (a goat that trampolines, a closeted gay Congressman, a Brazilian who fell into a ditch) of which Erika is the most notorious.

Media mogul Wilson LeCord seeks revenge after an ugly divorce and a makeover of his empire to succeed in the digital age. He posts a sex video of his cheating ex-wife with a marine where she shouts ""Take me to your tree, Bigfoot!"" and worse. He joins forces with his felon son (a sociopath in an ankle monitor), washed-up TV producer Jack, and viral sensation Erika to forge an online media news hub called "Viral Video Outlaws."

As death threats mount, Erika's star rises with a music video anthem against bullying called "Bully Bully." She records the song with high school gay outcast Syd. Lady Gaga's guest appearance rockets the video into the viral stratosphere.

Soon, Wilson is no longer head honcho, Jack becomes his own content, and Erika learns the hard way that there is a terrible price to pay when your videos and your fame go VIRAL.

Contrary to what you may have been told, financial aid for college expenses is available for almost anyone that really wants to get a college education. However, most high school students and their parents fall victim to the ridiculous myths that exist about how difficult it is to get the financial aid they need to pay for college tuition, books, board and other expenses.

For student/athletes that play sports, college athletic scholarships are not the only avenue for obtaining the funding you may need. Even if you do obtain one of the coveted sports scholarships, it may be only a partial.

Entering college with the money in the form of scholarships, loans, and grants is mainly a matter of starting early, investigating what’s available, planning and applying for the money that is available in any given year. Above all, you cannot wait until your son or daughter is a senior in high school to start applying for the funds to meet university expenses.

“Financial Aid For College” is a financial aid book that gives you all the information you will need to ensure that your child has money for college before he enters his freshman year. This guide to scholarships lists many little known financial aid opportunities and how to apply for them. And it also explains all the many different popular financial aid sources and when and how to apply for them.

From the sophomore through the senior year in high school, you are shown on a month-by-month basis what you should be doing to make sure that the college money you need is in hand and ready when you need it. The book is written in easy-to-use language, and it leaves nothing to chance.

If you have a child who wants to go on to college after high school, and you have no idea where to start looking for the funding, this book is a must for you. It is simply the ultimate scholarship book.

Yesterday, Taylor and Wes turned a boring field trip to their local library into a grand adventure when they found a mysterious portal leading into the fabled Land of Oz.

But that was yesterday.

Today they've learned their actions have had grave consequences. Not only did they alter the Oz mythos, but their deeds may have had unexplained repercussions in the real world as well.

"This is really great stuff! The characters seem real, three dimensional people, not typical fantasy types." - James Rollins, Author of THE DEVIL COLONY and MAP OF BONES.

On her twenty-first birthday, Julianna frees Grandfather Shadow, an ancient god of vengeance, from his thousand-year prison. In his ""gratitude,"" the god names her his high priest and commands her to lead his people to greatness once again. However, it has become a capital crime for any of Julianna's people to worship one of the five ancient gods - the punishment is the destruction of the offender's soul. While evading Kingdom Inquisitors and the followers of the god of death, Julianna must survive long enough to learn to use her new power and unite Grandfather Shadow's fractured people.

And so begins, TEARS OF RAGE a dark, epic fantasy saga about the power of faith and belief, where even though the gods can inspire these qualities in mortals, it is those same mortals that truly control the religions that form from any god's divine inspiration. It is also a swashbuckling tale of political intrigue where men scheme against each other and the gods, and how friendship, loyalty, and faith can help people persevere through the darkest times.
