A pamphlet series originally published during the American Revolution. Paine, like many other politicians and scholars, knew that the Colonists weren't going to support the American Revolutionary War without proper reason to do so. The pamphlets were written in a language that the common man could understand, and represented Paine's liberal philosophy. He also used references to God. His writings bolstered the morale of the American colonists, appealed to the English people's consideration of the war with America, clarified the issues at stake in the war, and denounced the advocates of a negotiated peace. The first volume begins with the famous words 'These are the times that try men's souls.'

Twins, shadows, mirror images are linked to the existence of something corporeal, as humans to their own bodies. Shadows need a body. When shadows are separated from the real world the dead exist as shadows because of damnation and expulsion. Fairy tales are true: Satan exists.

Deputy McPherson's years of wilderness survival did not prepare her for what would follow after the body of a woman was discovered in her district. After all basic survival skills didn't cover how to handle arrogant Interpol agents, French Diplomats and their lethal body guards, not to mention being sold out by your lieutenant. But all of that paled in comparison to the discovery that an animal believed to be a rampaging bear turned out to be a dragon.
In pursuit of justice McPherson didn't realize she'd stumbled onto a battle older than time itself. Good and Evil could take a back seat to the real world war between the dragon and the descendants of the woman from Revelation 12:17.

INTO THE AMERICAS (A novel based on a true story) is a gritty, real-life adventure based on one of history's greatest survival stories. It was inspired by the diary entries of young English blacksmith John Jewitt during his time aboard the brigantine The Boston and also during his sojourn at Nootka Sound, on North America's western seaboard, from 1802 to 1805.
Written by father-and-son writing team Lance & James Morcan (authors of The World Duology and The Orphan Trilogy), INTO THE AMERICAS is a tale of two vastly different cultures - Indigenous North American and European civilization - colliding head on. It is also a Romeo and Juliet story set in the wilderness.
Nineteen year-old blacksmith John Jewitt is one of only two survivors after his crewmates clash with the fierce Mowachaht tribe in the Pacific Northwest. A life of slavery awaits John and his fellow survivor, a belligerent American sailmaker, in a village ruled by the iron fist of Maquina, the all-powerful chief. Desperate ...

Two families, half a continent apart, faced with a loved one struggling against the onset of Alzheimer's Disease.
Two men, who each wind up being the primary care-provider for a beloved mother-in-law. These were roles they never expected to fill. Nothing they had done previously had prepared them for this.
We often hear that life is a journey, and it's the journey that matters - the path and the experiences - more than anything else. The family confronted with a loved one struggling against dementia often faces new, unexpected twists and turns in their journey.
This book offers some perspective on that journey, as we were going through it. It's part memoir, part journal, and all based on the things we were writing at the time. In seeing what we experienced, and the decisions we each made, over the arc of care-giving and then recovery, perhaps you will be better able to understand your own path, choose your own road.

From her 18th birthday and her first involvement in the world of BDSM, submission for Kelli Ann Miles seemed natural, harmless, and fun. When an 'on line' meeting turned 'real time' and introduced her to her first 'Dom', it seemed even better until his cocaine habit drove him to erratic behavior triggering his beating of her that ended a relationship she though was 'the one'. While withdrawing from the 'scene', Kelli Ann meets an older man on line and even though separated by 2500 miles it appears love will prevail. A family tragedy thrusts Kelli Ann into the role as 'head of household' long enough for weakness to set in and she once again enters the world of BDSM, only this time as a slave for a wealthy Louisville couple. In the next six months, what starts out as rapture ends up as a short time in hell for Kelli Ann as she is used and abused beyond her limits. The book is set in Louisville, Kentucky from 1995 to 1999 and is fiction based on actual events.
During our spiritual journey as our faith gets tested by what we witness in the world and our own circumstances, we may question the truth of what we've been taught about God. In Christian faith the Holy Bible is our reference manual, yet many denominations develop extra rules to support their doctrine, creating confusion and conflict among believers. With the Lord's assistance I hope to share with you, my revelation-ship of the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. So... Help me God!
It's possible to live our entire Christian lives knowing that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to teach us, yet unaware He is speaking directly to us. This is simply because we were never taught how to hear His voice or understand the ways in which He communicates with us. For me... real salvation came during an attempted suicide. I survived but had no idea I was saved, accepted by the Lord and born-again, or why I had weird dreams and heard a voice speaking to me. 'On the Way to Omega' is my ...

Empire is a tale of heroes and tyrants, assassins and spies that unfolds against a backdrop of civil unrest and political intrigue. It follows one woman's quest to unearth her true heritage, unlikely alliances and a chain of events that change the fate of the mighty Empire of Bantara forever.
"Empire is fantasy written on a massive scale... yet draws the reader into the personal quest of the heroine, and the hopes and fears that form this complex character. I felt very close to Amber and her co-adventurers and thoroughly enjoyed spending time in their company. Each character is beautifully drawn and well rounded- so much so that I am already having withdrawal having finished the book."

An investigation into the truths and myths behind an age-old ceremony.
Throughout history, the practice of exorcism has been used for the purpose of driving out evil spirits and demons though to possess human beings and the places they inhabit. But there are more startling instances where exorcism has been used: to cure a trawler that seemed to be cursed; to expel demons from Bram Stoker's black 'vampire' dog' even to rid Loch Ness and the Bermuda Triangle of their evil ambience. Peter Underwood explores this frightening ritual in relation to witches, vampires and animals, while his far-flung researches have unearthed dramatic cases in Morocco, Egypt, South Africa and the United States, as well as the British Isles.
Is the rite an archaic throwback, wrongly employed in cases of mental disturbance which would be better served by psychological counselling, or is evil indeed a living force which can be overcome by the power of good? Exorcism! offers some thought-provoking insights into ...

In the summer of 1989 I went to visit my dear friend Ahmed in Syria. This is his story and the stories of so many other people I met...
... and then we move fast forward to present time. Today, the 26th of August 2016 - "Updates and Thoughts on my book about Syria":
In 1990 I began writing my book about my personal experiences in Syria. I was still a very young man and memories from my time in Syria were crystal clear and still dripping from the excitement. After about 60 pages I ran out of steam and it wasn't until 20 years that I decided to finish my book with all of its unusual stories.
During the writing process the uprising in Syria began March 2011. I was conflicted by it and tried a few times to draw some parallels from the new escalating conflict to the stories in my book. But I soon realized that my book about Syria, which is very personal and at times extreme, had to be a periodic piece, an image of the moment with absolutely no references to the future or present ...

Haven is not only a place where the fae can visit earth, but is also home to vampires, demi-demons, faelings, and other hybrid creatures, along with human witches. Ray is herself a hybrid, but a forbidden hybrid between a Seelie fae and a demon-none other than the King of the Hells himself. Faerie's cruel Queen has forbidden dilution of "pure" Seelie fae blood by mixing with "lesser" races, especially demons, with whom Faerie has an uneasy truce following a bitter war.
Ray's position as the fae ambassador is valuable in that it gets her out from directly under the thumb of the Queen, who enjoys tormenting Ray because of her heritage but keeps her alive for leverage against the King of the Hells. Ray's position also means she cannot have contact with her demon ...

This is an authentic first-hand story of a Jewish/Ukrainian girl who chose to risk her life rather than become a KGB informant and honey trap in Havana during the publicly unknown second Cuban Missile Crisis (Cienfuegos crisis) in 1970. For the benefit of detente, the American administration pretended that the Cienfuegos crisis was solved in secret diplomacy. This was not true: the Cienfuegos Soviet submarine base operated for 22 years until Russia closed it in 1992. This secret second Soviet Navy nuclear adventurism, threatening a confrontation with the United States, dramatically affected the lives of Paulina, her husband, and their two small children. Paulina's memoir was motivated by the resurrection of new Russian global ambitions leading to the current third Cuban Crisis (2020) where the USA finds itself right now.
