How to write a full length fiction: Bring out the writer in you by Tanya Agarwal 4.3 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Everyone is a born writer. Still, writing fiction is a daunting task for two reasons. One, because you have to create a whole new world and then convince the readers that it is as real as you have shown them. Second, you have to write a lot. Most of the parts you will not be interested to write because as a writer, they are obvious to you. Writing fiction involves some elements which if combined coherently can result in a beautiful work of art. This book helps to show readers with stories, the art of creating memorable characters, creating fixating descriptions of settings, developing a breath-holding plot, becoming a good critique of others' work, and last and most important, how to revise your work. When you have reached that point, the way you will look at any work of fiction, even ordinary things around you will change. Congratulations, you just learned how to be a fiction writer.

My Days of Woe: A Personal History by Eric Tallman 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

I spend much of my time picking at the threads of this unruly tangle of emotions, behaviors and biological processes. The depression that affects my life, and affects the lives of others, is the knot that I continue to unravel.

My FBI Stories: Chapter 1 by Thomas A. Trier 4.7 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

I served twenty-five years as a Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The cases I was fortunate enough to be assigned were challenging. The five stories I included in "MY FBI STORIES: Chapter 1" are the first I documented. They are only the beginning of the stories I investigated, however. For example, I was a member of three FBI SWAT teams and served overseas in Nairobi in 1998, when the terrorist blew up the U.S. Embassies. I also went to Iraq in 2007 to assist the US Military in investigating terrorist groups as criminal enterprises. The stories included in this book are: 1) My first Arrest - A murderer out of Hawaii 2) Ellie and The Kid - I went undercover and bought a kid from some dirt bags. 3) Kilos, Kilos, Kilos - I developed a truck driver as an informant and seized 1560 kilos of cocaine from El Chapo. 4) Limited Basis - A kidnapping for ransom in Los Angeles. 5) Baby Raper - Arrest of a pedophile, kidnapper and kiddie porno producer. It is the first chapter of many of the cases I investigated or supervised in my FBI career. I hope you enjoy reading about them. I am working on the other "Chapters," so stay tuned. Thomas A. Trier is a retired FBI agent. He served as a Special Agent in Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles, California; as a supervisory Special Agent in FBIHQ, Washington, DC; as the supervisory senior resident agent in charge of the Madison FBI Resident Agency; and as an Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) in the Washington Field Office (WFO). He specialized in gang, drug, and organized crime investigations; the criminal enterprise theory of investigation; and the utilization of gathered intelligence to address threats to the United States. .

Mein Side of the Story: Key World War 2 Addresses of Adolf Hitler by M King 4.6 Stars (133 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

*145 Pages / 100 Illustrations* Our system of justice grants 'prima facie' murderers, rapists and serial killers the opportunity to speak, does it not? Indeed, convicted killers like Charles Manson, David 'Son of Sam' Berkowitz, Richard Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer and others have done televised interviews. Even the erroneous and dangerous ranting of Karl Marx is taught, no, glorified, in American Universities. So, what is so gosh-darn dangerous about merely presenting the opinion of Hitler's Germany? If that opinion is as evil and as fallacious as it is said to be, then why not present the full story, and then logically refute it? Truth is its own defense, so what is there to fear about simply hearing "the other side"? Do we really believe in "free speech" and "academic freedom" or do we not? Are we like retarded little children that need to be shielded from mere words? Or is somebody hiding something? Hmmm? In the purportedly American belief that no one has the right to deprive you of access to information, the purpose of putting together 'Mein Side of the Story' is merely to present Germany's version of the events in regard to the great catastrophic bloodbath known as World War II. This is Hitler's side of the story, revealed in his own spoken and written words. Only the brief 'Mein Side' blurbs and captioned illustrations have been added. A pair of wartime addresses by German Foreign Minister von Ribbentrop and one from Japanese Emperor Hirohito are also included. The speeches and writings are all 100% authentic. Some have been slightly abridged in order to avoid redundancy and to keep the booklet to a brief length. Modern "court historians" and journalists do not deny the content of these addresses. They can't. Instead, they simply ignore them, childishly denouncing anyone who does attempt to resurrect them as "Nazi", or "anti-Semitic". The common theme that runs throughout these addresses is that Germany, and also Japan, believed that World War II was imposed ...

The Green Reaper: Memoirs of an Eco-mortician by Elizabeth Fournier (WiDo Publishing) 4.8 Stars (20 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

When Elizabeth Fournier was eight, her mother and grandparents died. She spent a lot of time in funeral homes as a kid since her family were frequently found in caskets. Fournier family members didn't have the best longevity record. As a young girl, Elizabeth found cemeteries a place of peace and tranquility. As a teen, she'd attend funerals of people she didn't know. Not surprisingly, she eventually headed into the local funeral home and asked for a job, any job. She landed the position of live-in night keeper, where she resided in a trailer in the far reaches of a large, hilly cemetery. She slept with a shotgun near her bed, experiencing the scariest summer of her life. In her memoir, Elizabeth Fournier writes about her calling to the funeral industry, and how her early struggles helped shape her life ministry: taking care of the dead and preparing more meaningful burials. As a one-woman funeral service in the rural town of Boring, Oregon, Mortician Elizabeth Fournier supports old-school burial practices that are kinder to humans and the Earth. She has been called "The Green Reaper" for her passionate advocacy of green burial. As an undertaker, she is always ready to lend a hand, or a shovel. "Some of us work for a better living. Elizabeth Fournier works for a better post-deathing." --Huffington Post "Oregon's 'Green Reaper' is on a one-woman crusade to change the way we bury our dead." --People Magazine

A Prairie Cookbook: Memories and Recipes by Philip Wik (A Blue Kitten Book) 3.9 Stars (22 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

A Prairie Cookbook has recipes that were used to satisfy the hunger of pioneering families in the Midwestern United States. I must frame your expectations before you read this book. These aren't Old Country recipes. They're recipes from the Midwest from the turn of the last century. You'll find better recipes on how to make ox-tail soup, for example, on the internet and from other books, complete with full-spread glossy color illustrations. If you read this book for culinary how-to instructions or the art of gourmet, you'll be missing the point. Rather, my goal is to open a window into a vanishing world through the doorway of taste. This book provides another dimension to understanding the lives of our ancestors. These recipes are as simple and as unpolished as those who worked the land. And yet they invoke an atmosphere that other histories may not fully capture. They become a kind of a time portal into the past. Crushed tomato leaves are an example for me. Their smell magically transports me back to my grandmother's tomato garden when I was five years old. For you, it might be the smell of a holiday dinner or freshly baked cookies. Despite the hardships they faced, the people of the plains had high aspirations and ideals. In 1918, my grandmother Emma's husband Nicholas died from the Spanish flu epidemic that raged at the time. And yet she saw all eleven of her children go to college before and during the Great Depression. These memoirs help provide the context in which these meals were lovingly prepared, for children, grandparents, and field hands, and for holidays, weddings, funerals, and for daily life. Both these recipes and the memoirs give us a glimpse of an important time in the history of our nation and give us insight into the simple but strong character of the homesteaders of the Midwest.

The REAL Roosevelts: An Omitted History: What PBS & Ken Burns Didn't Tell You by M King 3.5 Stars (150 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

In the pantheon of American heroes, few names are more revered than that of 'Roosevelt'. As the decades pass into the century mark, the recent works of "historians" such as Doris Kearns Goodwin and film producer Ken Burns have exalted the Holy Trinity of Roosevelt to demi-god status. There was Theodore, hero of San Juan Hill, builder of the Panama Canal, scourge of the big bad "Robber Barons", and tireless champion of "the worker" whose manly image is immortalized in the stone of Mount Rushmore. There was Franklin, the altruistic savior of America who turned against his own class to serve "the common man". FDR, we are told, saved America, and indeed, the world. For that, his own image is immortalized on every American dime. And finally, there was Eleanor; the Sainted Lady whose compassion for the downtrodden made her the Mother Teresa of her day. That's the pleasant fiction, and if you wish that it not be disturbed, perhaps it is best that you put this book down and walk away. But if you can handle a cold dose of the reality that Ken Burns and his ilk have concealed from you, then M S King's 'The Real Roosevelts' is a work of entertaining scholarship that will shake you to your very core.

Owen Family Reunion Memories: Descendants of Elijah Spencer & Margaret Ottillia Blackburn Owen by Phillip R. Owen Price verified 18 hours ago

Spending an entire weekend with your extended family may seem strange to anyone born after the era of internet, cell phones and Facebook -- causing younger members of our family to ask about the origins of the Owen family reunion. It is told that the reunion tradition was inspired by memories of fun at the 1935 wedding and next day celebration for Leila Eliza Owen and John Lester Newcomb. Leila was the daughter of the Tom Owen clan from the Illinois. After Les and Lelia's wedding celebration Owen family members made plans for another family celebration; 1941 was the first officially recorded "family reunion". Seventy-five years later, the Owen clan is making plans for another family reunion on August 13 and 14, 2016. What are the reasons the annual reunion inspires our extended family members to attend a reunion each year? Well, there's always a big selection of good things to eat, lots of fun things to do and often some homespun entertainment and time to relax and reminisce about childhood memories. This book is a collection of family memories and photos provided by people who planned the reunions and made new memories each year. Come with me now as we journey back for a brief look at life that inspired our ancestors to plan that first Owen Family union: That summer of 1941, just before the start of WWII, the great depression of the 1930s had taken a toll on family income, cash money was in short supply; gas was cheap but cars were not very reliable and long distance travel (beyond 50 miles) was limited to very important family occasions such as weddings and funerals. , as a with most families, a majority of the Hiland and Lemuel Owen clan lived within twenty miles of Maquoketa, Iowa; and members of the Tom Owen clan lived within twenty miles of Peoria, Illinois. Some family members living in Kansas, Oklahoma and North Dakota were not able to attend the reunion the reunion every year. Telephone communication was limited to local calls and not everyone had a ...
