You were warned.

You’ve seen the harm inflicted in Michael Montoure’s SLICES, and you saw the countdown begin in COUNTING FROM TEN. But you’re still not safe. There’s more you need to learn before the damage sets in.

Uncover the secret a dead woman’s children will have to deal with in “Upstairs, Locked.” Don’t place your trust in the neighbor who lives in the “Safe House,” the man who lives upstairs in “The Leak,” or in the lovers you meet in “The Devil You Know.”

Bring back the dead in “The Lessons Learned and the Damage Done” — but be careful who’s watching. Build the walls that keep the monsters out in “Melt the Bullet, Blunt the Knife” — but don’t get trapped inside.

Avoid the obsessions that make people become “Heroes and Villains.” Free yourself from the past that haunts you in “New Year, Old Ghosts,” the past that keeps leading you back to “The Old Apartment.” And if you know how it all ends, find someone who will be with you until very last moment, until “A Sudden Loss of Cabin Pressure.”

Ten more unsettling stories to be read in the dark. Read them tonight.

Before the damage becomes permanent …

When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn't make fun of him, it's just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a two thousand-year-old vampire.

And when Maurice turns Reginald to save his life, it's just Reginald's own further bad luck that he wakes up to discover he's become the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever born, doomed to "heal" to his corpulent self for all of eternity.

As Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire -- too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead -- he discovers in himself rare powers that few vampires have… and just in time too, because the Vampire Council might just want his head for being an inferior representative of their race.

Fat Vampire is the story of an unlikely hero who, after having an imperfect eternity shoved into his grease-stained hands, must learn to turn the afterlife's lemons into tasty lemon danishes.

"The world of finance suited me well. My life was my job and my job was my life. I never socialized on weekends and always politely declined the few invitations, alleging either that I was not feeling well or that I had a family gathering to attend. Only I had no family--with the exception of my mother, who lived miles away in South Florida. At thirty-seven, I was far from wanting a family of my own; I couldn't remember the last time the thought came up. I wanted no chaos in my life.

But I have come to learn that life happens independent from what we want."
***
Rita Ray was cold-hearted, no doubt, a straight shooter with an enviable banking career in New York City. She had no real recollections of her childhood before the age of ten, when she fled with her mother from Brazil to the United States. She never learned why. A box of letters, found following her mother's death, will reveal evidence of a puzzling past back in Brazil.

Born in Rio is a moving, psychologically charged novel with thrilling turns, embraced by a contemporary love affair in Rio de Janeiro. Rita's journey of discovery, and self-discovery, delights readers in a well-crafted plot among lush descriptions of Brazil--its history, its people and its soul. Laced with wit and spiced with mystery, it's a compelling, transporting tale with a heart. In the 2016 Summer Olympic city Rita might just find what she never thought she was looking for.

An immigrant story. A devastating crime. A chance to forgive, to love again.
And a woman born in Rio.

Making a Masterpiece of Your Life: The Craftsman's Way of the Art & Science of Skillful Living (Akin to: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Tony Robbins, Oli Hille, Getting Things Done) by Charles Collins

Your Life is a Masterpiece for the Making

No mission is more important. No adventure, more rewarding.

Anyone can make a 'masterpiece' of their lives and skillfully practice 'life' as a balanced, integrated 'craft' - rather than the all too common experience of muddling through life as a random collection of unrelated experiences. And, know ahead of time exactly what the curriculum is for your entire life (and for teaching your children), vs. passing through life by 'intuition' (i.e.) "flying by the seat of your pants".

Your life is unique, and in the primary care of a single craftsperson. You are that craftsperson. To shape your life into a 'masterpiece' - a 'work of art' - requires training, practice and the skillful application of the tools of the craft to make a masterpiece of your life.

To practice the whole of 'life-as-a-craft', the way a craftsperson mindfully practices the trade of textile weaving, medicine, or carpentry, requires that the myriad activities of the 'craft of life' be systematically organized, managed, taught and learned similar to the ways in which we organize, manage, teach and practice our trades, occupations and professions...

Detective Ty Fuller loved being a Navy SEAL, but after seeing one too many innocent children killed, he was no longer able to stomach the world of politics, manipulation, and death. Now, as a detective with his local vice squad, he likes to think he's helping kids by keeping drugs off the streets--local problems, local solutions.

But when Dani and her team arrive, they bring a case bigger than anything Ty's small New England town has seen in decades, drugs in exchange for weapons-lots of them. And as the case unfolds and the tensions simmer between them, Dani and Ty discover that all is not what it seems. Uncovering a web of manipulation that spans the globe and reaches all the way to the US president, they know the price for justice will be high, risking not just their fledgling relationship, but their very lives.

The book covers a form of rote learning that involves writing down an abbreviated list of steps required to complete a process in the workplace – to use as a quick reference until your memory kicks in. The book title is a reference to people who perpetuate the belief that taking notes exposes a human weakness – a sort of tough-guy attitude that can make you feel uncomfortable about jotting something down to remember it.

If you are having problems in the workplace and have been accused of being incompetent, this book can assist. If you would like to move to another job, but need to keep the one you are in until you make your move, these techniques can help you keep your job until it's time to escape.

The author has been using these methods for decades – working through the details of day jobs – surviving recessions – and has never experienced a job loss that was not of his choosing.

This book is not for people with photographic (eidetic) memories.

Plague of Coins:
William Barrow carries a dark secret. A very dark secret.
An archivist for the Smithsonian Institute and also a part-time operative for the CIA, no one would ever suspect the handsome ‘thirty-ish’ William is in fact the most reviled human being to ever walk the earth. His infectious warmth and sense of humor make such an assertion especially hard to believe.

But long ago, William Barrow had another name…one that is synonymous with shame and betrayal: Judas Iscariot.

Forced to walk the earth as a cursed immortal, William/Judas is on a quest to reclaim the thirty silver shekels paid to him in exchange for Jesus Christ. Twenty-one coins have now been recovered—thanks in large part to the help from his latest son, the esteemed Georgetown University history professor, Alistair Barrow.

Ever hopeful the complete coin collection will buy him a full pardon from God and end his banishment from heaven, William plans a visit to a remote village deep within Iran’s Alborz Mountains to retrieve ‘silver coin number twenty-two’. But the CIA has a different objective for this trip, one that pits both father and son against an unscrupulous Russian billionaire searching for something else that’s just as precious within the ancient mountains of Iran…something that threatens peace in the modern world if William and Alistair fail to reach it first.

Reign of Coins:
For William Barrow, two thousand years is a very long time…too long, when it is a perpetual punishment for betraying Jesus Christ.
The man originally known as Judas Iscariot is on a mission to recover thirty silver shekels once paid to him for his ultimate treachery. Twenty-two coins have been recovered, leaving just eight to go. But when his Russian nemesis, Viktor Kaslow, also becomes immortal, the stakes are immediately raised.

Kaslow has followed William and his son, Alistair, to Hong Kong in search of a ‘blood coin’ passed down through Genghis Khan. The coin presently belongs to an esteemed Chinese collection. But along with the coin are other cursed items from the famed Mongol Emperor. William soon learns he can’t have the ‘one’ without the others.

William has waited eight hundred years for a second chance to reclaim this particular coin that inspired the Mongolian Empire’s bloody violence it was once famous for. While Kaslow closes in, seeking his own vengeance, William and Alistair race against the CIA and an unscrupulous American businessman intent on reaching the cursed ‘treasure trove’ before them.

Much is at stake for the Barrows and the world, as a deadly weapon unseen for centuries lies in wait alongside blood coin number twenty-three….
