By Jane Carson-Sandler
Jane Carson-Sandler, a native of Northern New Jersey, entered the US Air Force Nurse Corps in 1969 and retired in 1999 after serving 30 years of active and reserve duty. Seven years after entering the military, she was raped in her own home while her three year old son was lying beside her. Thirty eight years have passed. This notorious rapist and serial killer, known as the East Area Rapist (EAR), has raped 50 women and has murdered twelve people including men and women in California. He still has not been caught.
With raw emotion, Jane’s story entails how she survived not only this trauma, but some other bruising encounters with death such as her battle with alcohol and other serious health issues.
Through the Grace and love of God, Jane went from being a victim to a survivor. She describes her God inspired journey in making this transition in hopes of helping and inspiring others.
Jane holds an MA in Management from Pepperdine University and a BS in Nursing from California State University.
In February of 2013, Jane was interviewed on the TV program “Dark Minds”, on the Investigation Discovery Channel.

Frozen in Fear is the amazing story of one brave Christian woman’s spiritual journey from a life-threatening rape, alcoholism and complete despair to God’s healing through his peace and grace.
A great inspirational read.
—John Kelly, Profiler, Co-Star Dark Minds

By Lucas A. Dyer
As a US Marine, Lucas A. Dyer engaged in combat with the Taliban in Afghanistan’s heroin capital of Helmand. He fought in the Battle of Khanjar while participating in Operation Enduring Freedom from May 2009 to December 2009. He was one of the four thousand Marines who fought under Brig. Gen. Larry Nicholson as a member of the Second Marine Expeditionary Brigade, which also included 650 Afghan soldiers.

As a small unit leader and platoon commander leading Marines in battle, he fought terrorists and their allies on their home turf, witnessing unspeakable violence in the process. At a certain point, however, he and his fellow Marines realized that an eye for an eye would not accomplish their objectives; that marked a turning point for them, and a basis of true success began to unfold.

Relying on counterinsurgency operations, they began shaking hands one at a time—and that was how they ultimately drove the Taliban away. Day by day and week by week, they proved that a small fighting force could work together with Afghans to become brothers-in-arms.

In this memoir, Dyer recalls the events of his time in Afghanistan, sharing true stories from the front lines of how his company was able to win their battles through handshakes.

By Jesús L. Gutiérrez, PhD

In 1985, when a small freckle on Fanny Gutiérrez’s cheek grew to the size of a quarter and turned dark brown, the young mother sought medical advice. She soon learned she had malignant melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer.

In Until the End, her husband, author Jesús L. Gutiérrez, shares her battle with cancer and how the diagnosis and treatment affected Fanny, Jesús, and their two young sons. It narrates the family’s very real and vivid personal experiences to show how the psychological dynamics influenced them during the nine long and uncertain years of their cancer battle. This memoir provides insight into this particular form of cancer and shows how patients can serve the scientific community by being pioneers in the search for a cure.

Until the End pays tribute to Fanny and demonstrates the deep love she held for her husband and her children. It communicates the life-and-death decisions she made in regard to her health in order to extend her longevity. Most of all, it describes how she never lost her willingness to fight against the disease until the end.

“By writing about this distressing experience, Jesús has remarkably transformed the death of his wife Fanny from a private, tragic event to an instrument to end his suffering and sorrow. At the same time, he has used it as a testimony to help others to fight this terrible disease called cancer.”
—Foreword from Dr. Enrique Zuniga del Campo, Psychoanalyst

By Royce Walker

The normally quiet life in a small, rural town is ripped apart by a series of strange and violent deaths. The sight of brutally dismembered bodies is becoming disturbingly commonplace in a place where this sort of crime was once unthinkable. All the townspeople know is that a dangerous predator keeps striking from the shadows and that no one is safe from its insatiable appetites. There have been a few sightings, but no one can really describe what they’ve seen. What appears at first glance to be a gray man shifts into something far more elusive upon closer inspection.

With the help of a horse she rescues and the wayward spirit of her Confederate soldier great-grandfather, two most unlikely champions—the town’s veterinarian and her young daughter—emerge. Hoping to make a deal and solve the mystery, the vet’s daughter makes a strange deal with a powerful yet shy entity whose true intentions are as mysterious as the deaths. This entity’s power reaches across time and existence, even into the creation of entire worlds and civilizations.

The stakes couldn’t be higher: the fate of the soldier’s soul hangs in the balance, as does the continued existence of his descendents. A battle is building between unknown forces, and the collision between them has the potential to change their destinies and future memories for all involved.

By Omar Farhad
Heartbreaking and timely novel by Afghan-American author follows one man’s journey from New York to the clutches of the Taliban and into an unintentional polygamist union. “He is picking up the same bags with the same clothes Lisa packed and folded a year ago. He wishes he were like his clothes, untouched by external forces.” Family man Nick Blake is living in New York City and working for the United Nations. Born and raised in the United States with broad knowledge of the Afghan culture, he is living the All-American life with his wife, Lisa, and their children. His life is turned upside down when, while on a diplomatic mission to Afghanistan, Nick is kidnapped and finds himself in the clutches of the Taliban. Omar Farhad’s debut novel Honor and Polygamy follows Nick throughout his eighteen months in Afghanistan and the devastating and unexpected turns his life takes, as he learns the true meanings of home, history and culture. After being held captive for several months, Nick is forced to marry the sixteen-year-old Shaista. Although he cannot forget his beloved wife and children back home, he finds himself falling in love with his second wife and, overwhelmed with guilt, is torn between his old life and his new one. Honor and Polygamy is far from simply a captivating fiction story, but is also a brilliant commentary on the United States’ situation with Afghanistan. Farhad expresses his views on both the political and the cultural sides of Afghanistan. Politically, he is predicting how he feels the war will ultimately end, while culturally, he shows readers not familiar with Afghanistan that the 35-year-old war has created a population, which is uneducated, disloyal, and without identity. The United States and many other nations have continuously disrupted Afghanistan with no clear political objectives, and, in his novel, Farhad explores the consequences of these actions. The story of Nick Blake represents the reality of the Afghan culture and the results and disappointments of the political realities in Afghanistan, and shows readers just how unaware we all are of other cultures. Written by an author who has lived both the American and Afghan ways of life, Honor and Polygamy is a harrowing, haunting and deeply moving tale for our times.

One who Forgets and

One who is Forgotten

One in eight over the age of sixty-five and one in three over the age of eighty will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. In her memoir, author Joan Sutton narrates a moving account of her years as caregiver to her husband, noting that “Alzheimer’s is a disease of the brain that is paid for with the currency of the heart.”

A member of the board of overseers of The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, she stresses the need to develop more effective treatment for the eight million Americans currently diagnosed with this incurable disease, pointing out that for every patient there is a large circle of others also affected.

Sutton offers practical advice for the care of the caregiver and the patient, and shares the pain that came as she watched pieces of her husband’s self disappear. Following his death, after what Nancy Reagan described as “the long goodbye”, she writes candidly about coping with her new status as a widow and the aching loneliness of the heart that is the price paid for having known a great love.


All profits from the sale of this book will benefit The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation/Canada.

By John T Stolarczyk
In Kalishandra, the city of lost travellers, the city in the abyss, darkness has form. In the mist that rises periodically from cracks between the cobblestones, it has life. Melt-mist, the shaper, drifts along empty streets, welling into deep, choking pools in forgotten courtyards. It breaks in ephemeral smoke waves upon the stark stone walls of towers, which protrude above its curling tendrils like strangely envisioned nightmares. These bleak, inhospitable eyries are the lairs of dark and terrible wizards, beneath whose hard and stony glare Kalishandra shifts. Streets change. Walls stand where before there was but empty space. Courtyards once remembered fade into obscurity. Old things disappear, are misplaced; here a statue, there an ornamental fish pond. Even older things return. The smell of a river long thought lost - blood upon the cobbles. It continues. . .

Long before the arrival of the twenty-four-hour pharmacy, folk healers took care of aches, pains, and sniffles with home-grown remedies. Hidden in their kitchens, they had their own bag of tricks used for centuries to treat what ailed them. Growing up, Clementine Holmes Bass learned about many of these home cures from her beloved aunt Dollie, a woman whose wits and wisdom profoundly impacted the author’s life. Some of her best days were spent in Aunt Dollie’s kitchen, laughing and learning about her friends, family, and ancestors. Clementine shares some of her late aunt’s best advice, as an entertaining look at how things were once done.

Aunt Dollie advocated the use of commonly found ingredients such as sulphur powder, molasses, mustard plasters, onion, and even turpentine. Clementine, however, does not advocate that these remedies be mistaken for actual medical advice. She shares this information more as a humorous glance back at simpler times, not as a handbook for modern injuries and sicknesses—and she isn’t recommending these techniques for your use. Instead, she offers Dollie’s extensive collection of recipes, tips, and advice for entertainment, amusement, and historical value.

Alongside Aunt Dollie’s contributions, Clementine also shares some treasures she learned from her Choctaw ancestors and the senior citizens of Cleveland County, Arkansas. Some of these “cures” are practical—and others will boggle your mind!

Lady Gaga farts with gusto,
as do Oprah and Mo'Nique,
while Dr. Dre and Yo-Yo Ma
much prefer the one-cheek sneak.

The girl from Ipanema
now weighs one eighty-three.
Now each day when she walks to the sea,
she looks at me.

There's no sleeping pill made,
no trick of the trade,
like rum or the counting of sheep,
that can carry a man
like a breast in the hand
and a bum in the belly to sleep.

Why is it that...
Patrick Dempsey incarnates sex
with a beard of several days,
while I, unshaven just as long,
resemble Gabby Hayes?

In a men's room it's P.C.
to leave the seat up après pee.

And
Sarah Palin, Vicks Vaporub, gay bishops, Mormons, Wikileaks, mumps,
Dick Tracy, Paulie Walnuts, Sun Myung Moon, beer can openers,
Jehovah's Witnesses, Chef Boyardee, pole dancing, Catholics, the Tea Party, Jesus as vintner, Italian drivers, Howdy Doody,
Will Shortz, Cinderella, Jonah and Saint Patrick.

It's all inside.
And mostly all humorous.

Ed Caffrey worked in advertising for 35 years, writing about 10,000 TV and radio commercials,
mostly all humorous, winning 14 Clio awards.
It was there he met his beautiful Helen,
whose illustrations you'll see inside.

"A perfect conflation of intelligence, wit, nostalgia and love. Not only accessible but immensely pleasurable to read. Mr. Caffrey serves up a savory buffet of insights guaranteed to evoke smiles of recognition."

"I love his sentiment and reading his words makes me feel nostalgic. Most poetry that critics seem to love is inaccessible and doesn't move me at all. Ed has the true Irish wit and the wonderful way with words."

By Valdeck Almeida de Jesus

Alice, in gay parlance, is a slang word used to refer to homosexuals who are easily deceived—those who do anything for love, devote themselves to their partner, try to act properly, and end up invariably victimized. Alice, because of good or innocent intentions, ended up tried and sentenced by the Queen of Hearts, discovering that Wonderland is not so wonderful.

The Alice in author Valdeck Almeida de Jesus decided to try protesting against the Queen’s established order. Homosexuals do not love any less than heterosexuals. They do not suffer any less. They are no less intelligent, no less capable withstanding disease. But their relationships are often different, yes—in the approach, the life together, and prejudice. Gays are different—and yet, as in the days of ancient Greece, they are simply ordinary citizens.

Yes, I Am Gay. So, What? offers a fictionalized examination of the life of a young gay man in Brazil—the culture he inhabits and his own search for self-realization and self-creation.
