“Adventures of a Country Boy in the City”
provides an insight into the engaging life of the author, whose natural instinct is to know how to convert opportunities to bring about positive changes in his life. The author enchants the imagination of his readers to become part of his compelling story by involving the reader in every step of the adventures he encountered in the city of Lagos, and later, as a student, in the cities of Hamburg and of West Berlin.

Told in very colorful and vibrant language, the reader, the author and the story all become one and the same entity, allegorically following the path etched out in the words of the author. When, in his journeys, and one road seemed to be closed and the reader shudders at the rational of the breathtaking risk that the author has just taken, a God-sent Guiding Angel suddenly appears to take the author out of whatever adversity.

Join Komolafe in his adventures as he journeys through life from the background of a simple village life in the Yoruba Kingdom of Nigeria to the world of opportunities that awaits a man of valor who dares to demand his share of what destiny has in stock for him.

By Drew Bridges

The Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees in the seventh game of the 1955 World Series in the greatest baseball game ever played. The second-greatest baseball game ever played took place Saturday, June 29, 1957. No Yankees, Giants, Dodgers, Cardinals, or Red Sox were there. The game played out in author Drew Bridges’s hometown of Hildebran in western North Carolina. Two teams of boys, ten to fifteen years old, faced off on the high school baseball diamond, no uniforms and no organized league. Bridges played second base, his brother played third, and their dad coached the team.

In this memoir, Bridges tells the story of that afternoon of baseball and how it came to be through his recollections and his father’s wartime letters to his mother who was pregnant with their first child. It shares the words of an ordinary American serviceman who is dreaming about a life beyond war.

Field of Dreams meets A League of Their Own meets The Sandlot in this story of a soldier’s return home from World War II and his work with others in the community to build a youth league baseball program. The Second-Greatest Baseball Game Ever Played shares the game of baseball through the eyes of a ten-year-old and shows how this game captured the heart and soul of a community and became so vital to all.

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 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 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.

We are born, and we die. In between, during our allotted brief time on this planet, we strive to make sense of our world, seeking answers to universal questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What is the meaning and purpose of life? As we ponder the answers, we yearn for love, for friendship, and to be happy. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER is a collection of eight beautifully articulated vignettes in which the author shares personal experiences from his own life’s journey.

From the sadness of his father’s passing to the discovery of a lifelong friend while hitchhiking, he captures the emotions that bring such singular, meaningful experiences to life. Through his eyes, we learn of the three gifts a mother bestows to her children, to be found under the tree each Christmas; of the parental concern he and his wife experience during their Army son’s tour of duty in Iraq; and of the memories created with siblings during an adventure home to Wisconsin with his daughter. Also through his eyes, we experience once again the unforgettable unfolding of the attack, and aftermath, of 9/11; we take an insightful look at the Preamble to our Constitution, with an objective observation that should deeply concern every American; and lastly, we journey back in time to experience a meeting of the author with his younger self, and we learn of the message he takes back with him to share with that person.

In this collection, the author has created loving and enduring tributes to the dearest people and most significant events of his life; tributes to which we can also relate, that touch the heart and speak to the soul.

By Arlene Sollis

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.

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.
