5 Stars! "Just as entertaining and addicting as reality TV, The Holdout is a must read for lovers of wit, strength, and Survivor" - Fiction the New Reality Blog

"Captivating entertainment, like an episode of reality TV." -Kirkus Reviews

Robin wanted to win The Holdout, a cutthroat reality TV show, so she gave it her all, challenge after challenge. Then she fell for Grant, with his irresistible eyes and heartbreaking life story.

But Grant was only using Robin as they competed for a million dollars. Once home, Robin wants to hide from the humiliation as episodes of The Holdout are aired, and she worries her family was right all along; she's not a survivor.

Yet she could surprise everyone, and have the last laugh.

Besides, Robin now has jury duty. And as she forges ahead, confronting her demons about bravery, justice, and romance, Robin will come to decide which is more important: the courage to stand alone, or the strength to love again.

"Well written and smart, The Holdout is worth checking out." -San Francisco Book Review

DARCYVILLE ... where stupidity is celebrated ... with a deadly dose of sin.

Two weeks before junior year, Darcy hops a plane to Orlando for a little R&R with her best friend Dylan and his family. Fresh off the heels of solving three murders in Valley, you'd think she'd sit back and enjoy the vacation capital of the world ... maybe if you're a noun. Darcy Walker, however, is nothing but verb.

Before her feet hit the Orlando soil, she's meddling in the disappearance of a five-year-old boy who vanished six months earlier.

With authorities still no closer to solving the case, Darcy is shanghaied by her impulsivity and runs headlong into that proverbial burning building, convinced she can bring him home.

She travels down a road that not only follows this missing child but branches off into the corrupt and sinister world of mob activity when she tampers in a case on which Dylan's detective grandfather is working.

After a near disastrous midnight meeting in a warehouse and a date with a mechanical bull, Darcy realizes she might've bitten off more than she can chew. Add the boiling flirtationship with her best friend and the appearance of his romantic rival, and she is in over her head.

Will she survive a life of flirting with death too easily? Or will her flirtationship with Dylan become the actual death of her instead?

For a girl with a habit of finding dead bodies, No Brainer gives Darcy Walker more of the same ... surprising twists and turns ... and running for her life.

A Pair of Docks (Derivatives of Displacement), by Jennifer Ellis. (Still 2.99?)

"Good stuff for everyone! As an adult reader, I really enjoyed this book. It has a well thought out story with lots of intricacies that kept me interested, curious and guessing what was really going on. The scientific facts and ideas are well researched and nicely woven together with magic and witchcraft. It was also refreshing to have a female, science geek protagonist. Well worth reading regardless of your age!" -- Amazon reviewer

What if you could see your future?

Fourteen-year-old Abbey Sinclair likes to spend her afternoons in the physics lab learning about momentum and gravitational pull. But her practical scientific mind is put to the test when her older brother, Simon, discovers a mysterious path of stones that allows them, along with Abbey’s twin, Caleb, to travel back and forth between their world and what appears to be...the future.

Unfortunately, they’re not the only ones who know about the stones, and they soon realize their lives are in danger from a man known only as Mantis. Abbey, Caleb, and Simon must follow a twisting trail of clues that will lead them from their autistic neighbor, Mark, to a strange professor who claims to know the rules of the stones, and to multiple futures—some of whose inhabitants don’t want to stay put.

It will take all of Abbey’s analytical skills to unravel the secrets of the stones, uncover the threads that tie the futures together, thwart Mantis’s plan, and, most importantly, keep her family alive—now and in the future.

A Pair of Docks is an action-adventure for kids and adults that explores Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, parallel universes, time travel and the boundary between science and magic. It is the first novel in the Derivatives of Displacement series. Lovers of fantasy and science fiction will find plenty to like in A Pair of Docks.

Habit traps: Stuck in a rut? How to get unstuck and get rid of those negative habits!, by Siegbert Scheuermann. (Still 0.99?)

If you buy the printed book, this ebook is free through Amazon's Matchbook program.

"Very helpful. It is quite an amusing book and helped me overcome my inner demons, which were pretty hard to defeat at first! Hopefully more books like this will follow." -- Amazon reviewer

In Germany No. 1 for weeks in the categories Personality, Psychology & Help, Personality Psychology.

What readers have to say: authentic, interesting, entertaining, humorous, never pedantic, food for thought, stimulates you into action, has the required depth, professionally sound, recommendable, fun to read! Other opinions: no great work of literature, expected more, unscientific, weird, readable but could be developed further. As you know, different people have different views and opinions. Form your own!

This book lets you take a humorous look at yourself in the mirror and gives you a better idea of your habits and behavioral patterns. Which habits reduce your quality of life and how can you get rid of them? For example, would you like to exercise regularly, lose weight or stop smoking but your brain continuously finds reasons not to get out of bed in the mornings, or to just have that one tiny piece of chocolate as an exception, or to postpone your non-smoking career to a later date? At forty at the latest, not only are we responsible for our weight, but also for our face and our posture. Habits embed themselves in our thoughts, relationships, facial expressions and even our body shape.

The first steps to get out of those ruts:

Step 1: Stocktaking at the “Creatures of Habit" Zoo.
Step 2: Analysis of habits and behavioral patterns.
Step 3: How do we replace negative habits with positive ones'

1. Our brain is often brilliant at finding justifications in order to keep as much as possible stuck in its usual rut.
2. We shouldn’t try to defeat our inner demon. We should win it over to our side!
3. We need to escape from our “habit traps”, from naivety, incompetence, ignorance, inconsequence and harmful identifications with other people or things.

Look forward to a pleasurable and worthwhile read!

The contents are the results of personal experience and 25 years of work in behavioral and communication skills training with thousands of students. This book is based on articles published by the author in his blog:
