"I would certainly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys good historical fiction driven by interesting characters and a well conceived and executed narrative." -- John Glass

"It's well written and fascinating, with a large and varied cast of characters, from daring naval captains to runaway slaves." -- Tony James Slater

Catalina Flores de la Pena's tongue got her in more trouble than any other part of her body, even though there were far more likely candidates. But when a storm rolls into her sleepy port town, she finds herself embroiled with a gang of adventurers, mercenaries, and prostitutes on a journey to free South America from the Spanish Empire.

A Storm Hits Valparaiso is an epic historical adventure starring two brothers torn apart by love; a slave running for his life; a disgraced British sailor seeking redemption; and Jose de San Martin, an Argentine general who deserts the Spanish Army to lead a bloody revolt against his former masters.

This short children's book is a collection of six spooky stories, and is a real kid-pleaser from the reviews!

"I read these with my kids and they enjoy the spooky stories." -- Diane

"My two boys didn't want to have to wait to hear the next stories, so we read more than one when we first opened the book up." -- Leigh Richwood

Hailey and her best friend Jared have gone on several exciting adventures. Originally separate short stories, I have put six of their fun but spooky stories together for this book. Each story has suspenseful adventures that always end with a twist!

Even though Hailey is a girl, you'd have to call her a tomboy as she loves adventures with her best friend Jared and has no problem getting in and out of spooky situations! She, Jared and her beloved bike Blue manage to keep their lives pretty exciting and sometimes they are not sure whether it's ghosts or just their imagination. You'll just have to decide which one it ends up being!

How Cohesive is your Company?: A Leadership Parable, by Ravi Kathuria. (Still free?)

This management / leadership book is broadly praised for passing on leadership lessons within the context of a story.

"This is really a great novel which is captivating from the very beginning, keeping you engaged with the storyline chapter after chapter, wanting to know what will happen next. The book connects critical aspects of running a business, successful execution and the value every member of the team with the political and interpersonal challenges all organizations face. The struggles and challenges that Trent (the main character), who excelled in his functional area that got him the CEO position, faced reminds me of many situations I experienced as a leader and the value of a systematic approach connecting processes, technology and the strengths and experience of everyone in the team." -- F. Duran, Amazon reviewer

If your company/team is facing issues in the above areas, this book is a must-read for you and your colleagues.

This book is the story of a CEO who wants to take his company to the next level. However, the harder he pushes the organization, the more challenging it gets. It is the story of how he struggles to transform the business and, in the process, struggles with his personal transformation.

How long can you lie to yourself before it all comes apart?

In 2152 the avian race is on Earth looking for something stolen from them decades ago - their genetics. At the center of the search lies the Rural Republic; a small backwards farming country with high hopes of military domination and a penchant for illegal bioengineering.

19 year old Junco Coot is the daughter of the Rural Republic's ranking commander. She's the most foul-mouthed, wildly unpredictable and ruthless sniper the Rural Republic has ever trained. But when her father's death sparks a trip into forbidden places, she triggers events that will change everything she knows to be true.

As an elite avian military officer, Tier's mission is to destroy the bioengineering projects, kill Commander Coot's daughter, and return home immediately. There's just one problem. Junco isn't who she claims to be.

With no one to trust, not even herself, Junco must confront the secrets of her past and accept her place in the future, or risk losing herself completely.

CONTENT WARNING - The I Am Just Junco series is NOT young adult and contains A LOT of bad language.

273 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 5 reviews.
