By Elisabeth Amaral
The mid-1960s through the mid-1970s was a heady, turbulent time. There was a lot going on back then, and author Elisabeth Amaral was in the middle of it all: the fights for women’s rights, racial equality, a music revolution, be-ins, love-ins, riots in the streets, the rage against the Vietnam War, and sex, drugs, and rock and roll. It was an amazing time to be young. In Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup, Amaral shares her recollections of those times. She narrates a coming-of-age story about herself and her husband as they embarked on an improbable journey of self-discovery. They gave up their jobs, moved with their infant son from New York City to Boston, unexpectedly started a children’s boutique, and soon opened a popular restaurant in Harvard Square. With sincerity and humor, Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup offers a personal and revealing account that reaches out to those who find themselves striving to make a relationship work that, by its very nature, may be doomed. But this story is also one of friendship—and of finding the courage to move on. Praise for Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup “In her intimate and humorous memoir, Liz Amaral reveals the challenges of a young family establishing a home in Cambridge amid the tumult of the late 1960s. You will discover the disconcerting truth about her marriage and the painful path she takes to find herself again. A true adventure of the heart.” —Kathrin Seitz, writer, producer, and coach

By Raven White

A rebellious and willful woman, author Raven White spent years stewing her organs in lethal concoctions of alcohol, meth, marijuana, and cocaine. Running from relationships and self-medicating was routine. Colon cancer and a life expectancy of three to five years became the “cure” she needed to hear God’s voice.

In Bad Can Be Broken, she narrates the story of how stage four colon cancer at first was her nemesis, but how it ultimately became the reason she now lives a life filled with love, joy, and peace. This memoir details her specific struggles, including being a cancer warrior, and it also discusses the challenges she faced long before accepting God. White tells how she believes the karma racked up in her teens through her late thirties led to having to swallow the weight of a life-threatening illness.

Touching on spirituality and maturing as a human being, Bad Can Be Broken offers hope and inspiration. White shows how she found peace and purpose and tells how it is available for others facing the same challenges.

The Power of Words to win the Game of Life, Inward Outward & Upward.

Sometimes we fight with the inward man

Sometimes we fight with the outward man

Sometime and the best way to fight is not to fight at all But to reach to the upward man which is our heavenly father.

The best way to find out how a product will work to it’s fullest potential is to go back to the instruction manual. Looking at the pictures doesn’t do it all the time. Have you ever tried to put something together by looking at the picture in the manual and when you are done there is a part left over and it wasn’t an extra part. Often we don’t know what it was for until the product stops working or never works properly. That part is usually a part that is needed for inside the product, without it, it just wont last or run to it’s fullest potential.

So it is with life. We can’t look at the picture we have to read the manual and put it together. There is so much more inside if we would just read the manual and apply it. GOD has given us all the parts and he also supplies the upgrades as needed.

In this book you will see the inward struggle. Then the outward struggle. Then you will see when I turn towards the manual which is GOD. That when the struggle is over. That’s when I reach upward for Victory.

This is book one of two.

By David Kimel
A Foggy Sunrise creates a colourful, real image of life in Romania during the interwar period that preceded World War II, continued with the war period, and the beginning of socialism. This is a living fresco that restores photographic images frozen in time and space. It’s a documentary with historic value where every person is alive and anchored in time to describe precisely the events in the context of everyday life with authenticity and the candour of the storyteller as a child.

Author David Kimel weaves a transparent picture of a childhood that reveals his innocent daily adventures It follows the somber, less exciting struggle of his parents and neighbours living in the outskirts of Bucharest during the troubled times before and after the end of the Second World War —a time that brought a communist regime into power in Romania. He offers a myriad of facts and circumstances he witnessed that enriches the narration with colourful, sometimes sad, sometimes funny little descriptions that create a vivid fresco of these years.

In the background, never mentioned in the story, were the larger-than-life figures of his Jewish parents who were forced to assume dangerous risks in order to survive and provide food for their children. Kimel’s memoir provides new insight into the history of a country at a crucial time in a divisive Europe where people had to run for their lives in search of liberty to another country.

By Don Peeler

In the heady days of the early 1960s, the United States found itself perched on the edge of technological, sociological, and societal precipices. Advances made by its enemies with offensive ballistic-missile systems put America in catch-up mode, both on Earth and in orbit. Others were leading the race to space, and that was an affront to American safety, status, and national pride.

For the men and women employed as top-secret research workers at the General Motors Division, secrecy was a way of life. The projects they worked on—including Project Jennifer, Big Bird, Thor, Titan missiles, Matador, Regulus, the stealth fighter, and the Fastest Gun in the West—were cloaked in the highest security possible. In their labs, the Lunar Rover, Apollo Guidance, and the complex, multinational F-16 systems were born.

Don Peeler was a typical engineer in this high-stress environment, but his personal experiences were atypical. During his years at the General Motors Division, he experienced events that ran from the humorous to the heroic, and in Nothing Was Ever Normal, he shares his best memories of those days. For Don and his peers, there was no “normal” or any such thing as “standard operating procedures,” because what was occurring had never been experienced before. Compared to NASA’s Manned Space Program, their glory came from knowing that what they were doing was essential to the security of the United States. Now that their classification designations have lapsed, the stories of the “Band of Others” can finally be told.

By Dayton Lummis

The author freely admits that “devices” are not all bad. For better or worse they have changed the world. But this book ranges far from the subject of the effects of “devices,” often into areas distinctly “politically incorrect.” Some commentary is amusing; others might be seen as “disturbing.” This is a good companion book for your “one-way trip to Mars!” Read it, and you will never be the same again! Nor will be the society described. We live in changing times; there is a distinct sense of a “rising sadness” for lost America...

“It’s All Good” is written as the result of a mother’s journey through her daughter’s unexpected death from cancer. Unlike most books on this topic, it deals with the day to day struggles caused from grief and heartache. The book touches on Julia’s early life in a small town in Kentucky, her two daughters, remarriage and the challenges of her husbands own health issues. It’s raw and honest. It’s about those days when you think if you have to attend another birthday, wedding or holiday event, you will go absolutely crazy. Those days when you question God and why you’re still alive and your child isn’t. Those days when you feel so distant and far away from your family and friends. Those long, cold days of darkness and despair. And, yet, how can going in to a dusty, cluttered home office change your life? How can picking up a small, never read book bring you to your knees? How can three simple words, “it’s all good”, over power and erase every day of hopelessness? Totally unprepared and unexpected, it did.

When Arlene Sollis was born with cerebral palsy in 1935, the doctor advised her parents against taking her home. He said she would never function on her own—that she would be mentally handicapped and unlikely to survive beyond the age of ten. Her quality of life, the doctor said, would be minimal at best, and so he recommended that she be sent to an institution, where she would be taken care of.

Her mother refused, instead taking Arlene home with her. And all of the doctor’s predictions turned out to be false. Arlene turned out to be a bright child with a true zest for life. Although she has certainly faced struggles and difficulties in her life, she grew to adulthood and eventually became a special education teacher. She dedicated her life to promoting the rights of all disabled people, receiving many awards and citations for her work.

This memoir tells the true and inspiring story of Arlene’s life, following her from birth until the present and recalling her childhood, teaching career, progression of her condition, and retirement.
