By N.D. Mellen

I’m no hero, no matter what people say. After all, you can’t be a hero if you despise those that you’re protecting. The way that I look at it, what I am is a matter of circumstance: I gave up dresses and skirts the day I watched my parents die. I was eight years old, and was mauled and scarred by the creature that killed them. If it hadn’t been for the intervention of a half insane blacksmith I would have perished beside them. I survived, but was infected by the Blackness.

My face was tattooed when I was sixteen to hide my scars, and I started training under the brutal tutelage of one of the most skilled killers to ever walk the Outer Rims shortly thereafter. He battered me for years, teaching me how to kill as quickly and efficiently as possible. Not people, mind you. No, we trained to kill Ferals; the white skinned, black eyed monsters that killed my parents and so many others.

There are still a few who object to what my pack and I do. They think that- since Ferals used to be human- we owe them some sort of sympathy. I don’t think that deeply into it. I just kill them, and when the Blackness is roaring through me and I have my spear in my hand, I’m really good at it. I know all the old wives tales about princes and princesses; everyone has a “happily ever after.”

But this is my story, and there’s nothing happy or beautiful about it. You can call me Maqui, and it’s an understatement to say that I have staggering anger issues.

By Philip Staal

It was 1942 in Amsterdam when Isaac and Anna Staal began noticing their Jewish neighbors disappearing. Some were taken away by Dutch police. Some vanished in the middle of the night. As the Nazis embarked on a manhunt for Dutch Jews, Isaac and Anna made the agonizing decision to entrust their children to strangers and seek another hiding place for themselves. On May 21, 1943, the time had come. Dazed with sleep, Philip and his brother were given a last hug by their parents and put in the arms of an aunt who went out the door softly, got on her bicycle with the two tiny tots, and disappeared in the silent night.

Sixty years later, Philip was commissioned to work for the restoration of rights in the Netherlands. When looking through archives and records, he discovered the well-kept secret of the war orphans’ guardians’ organization.

In his compelling story that weaves between past and present, Staal not only shares a heartbreaking narrative of his childhood as a toddler separated from his parents during World War II and forced to live in orphanages after years of hiding but also how he eventually made it his personal mission to reimburse assets and restore rights lost by Dutch victims of persecution, and search for the legacies of war orphans’ parents, including his own.

Settling the Account shares poignant personal narrative, historical facts, and one man’s determined pursuit to bring justice to Dutch-Jewish war orphans, and their murdered parents and resolve the mystery of his past.

Joshua is small for his age. He has been bullied relentlessly for years, and all of his friends have drifted away from him. Eve is a pretty girl who has just been recruited into the popular girls’ clique. The two couldn’t be more different.

On the first day of eighth grade, their final year of middle school, their lives intersect when they are paired together as lab partners in Science class. At first reluctant just to be around him, Eve soon realizes that Joshua is nothing like the boy she’d been warned about, and through their partnership, their school’s darkest secret is revealed to her.

The relationship that forms between these unlikeliest of friends will lead them both on a path of self-discovery, a dangerous path that will teach them both the true meaning of friendship, loyalty, and most of all, love … a relationship that will not only change both of their lives forever, but the complexion of their entire school.

Often in life, we find ourselves focused on our histories, mired in the baggage of the past—a state that can keep us from living the lives that God intended.

By Ligia T. Domenech, Ph.D.

Winston Churchill recognized in his memoirs: “The only thing that ever really frightened me during the war was the U-boat peril.”

His fears would be realized in the Caribbean: By the end of the war, the Germans had sunk four hundred merchant ships in the Caribbean while only losing seventeen U-boats in what was called Operation Neuland.

Begun in 1942, the campaign sought to cut the supply lines from the Caribbean to the Allies with the intention of strangling their import-based economies. Colonies of various empires would be left to fend for themselves.

Dr. Ligia T. Domenech explores how the campaign hurt the people of the Caribbean, focusing on her native Puerto Rico. Learn about the principal targets of the German U-boats in the Caribbean, the United States’ reaction to Operation Neuland, the shortage of essential goods, new industries that developed during the war period, and the blockade’s long-lasting effects.

To this day, the public and even most historians don’t know about the blockade’s devastating effects and what it meant to be Imprisoned in the Caribbean.

Two zealots plan to end world violence by destroying powerful America with the help of the Ebola virus, but Michael Reynolds stands in their way, desperately searching for answers.

The attack date is another 9/11. The year is 2021. Two disillusioned zealots plan to end world violence once and for all by stripping the powerful United States of its electric power and communications – and possibly the lives of its citizens. Their weapons are a nuclear electromagnetic pulse bomb and a modified Ebola virus capable of airborne infection.

During the nation’s global warming crisis of 2014 to 2018, the U.S. capital was temporarily moved from Washington, D.C. to Denver, Colorado. There, Michael Reynolds finds himself again in the midst of terror and turmoil. Over a three-day period in one square mile of Denver, Reynolds must find a way to counter the zealots’ scheme and save America from utter destruction.

Part of the destructive plot, the young and beautiful Fila also enters the fray, but eventually becomes uncertain of her role. Will she hinder or help Reynolds? If the virus spreads unabated, there is little hope for survival. With no means of communications and with no anti-viral against Ebola, Americans face a tragic end if Reynolds does not follow the right clues.

By James McTaggart

His earliest memories swirl with vivid, colorful ambitions of a creative life helping others. From his days as a child in Brooklyn, New York, James Alexander Posley McTaggart III has let his imagination guide and inspire him. Now a professional counselor, mentor, and holistic guide and healer, he channels those ambitions to the page.

In college, he began each day with a writing exercise he called “Morning Pages,” in which he would write until he had filled three pages. This practice inspired a lifelong devotion to daily writing, where he realized his creative mind was motivated by the young child with the command-of-lights imagination within. As an adult, he battles with depression, and in the pages of his journals, he has created his own therapeutic approach to self-healing.

In Life, I Don’t Have The Answers. You Do: I Am Still Here he shares a collection of inspiring and thought-provoking quotes and thoughts designed to inspire readers. The process of writing his first book moved him deeply; he cried, laughed, doubted, praised, and expressed every human emotion possible. It was, for him, a cathartic and serendipitous affair.

A bold new collection of stream-of-consciousness writings and musings about life, love, faith, hope, healing, and creativity, Life, I Don’t Have the Answers, You Do: I Am Still Here invites readers to explore their own inner playgrounds for truth.

By Gary P. Perkins
In the 1950s, young business students were taught to hire on with a large corporation, climb from entry level up the ladder one step at a time until one reached their career goal. Though author Gary P. Perkins lacked an advanced degree from a prestigious institution of higher education, he had a great advantage. He hailed from a long line of hard-rock miners who had pounded through granite in Britain and later, soft limestone when they harvested the precious minerals of America in the nineteenth century. He knew, firsthand, the value and rewards of hard work.

In Above the Grass¸ he narrates the story of his personal journey and his business accomplishments, including background about his family history and his English/Cornish roots—from childhood and youth, to service in the US Navy, to business college, his career path, marriage, birth of children, personal challenges, and retirement.

Perkins’s story covers his journey from an entry-level position in 1961 to corporate president in 1980, despite a burden of alcoholism that progressed at about the same rate. When he realized he couldn’t win the battle with the bottle, he entered and completed a treatment program and has been in recovery since. Throughout the story, Above the Grass communicates the mainstays of Perkins’ life, values inherited from his ancestors and nurtured by his family and small town.

By Tim Anderson

When police agencies began grabbing more power in the 1960s, it began a vicious cycle of relying on imprisonment to solve socio-political, financial, and mental health problems.

The reality is that this approach hasn’t worked, and it’s actually diminished our quality of freedom. Meanwhile, police officers have begun to look at citizens not as people to serve and protect but as enemies.

Tim Anderson takes an in-depth look into how the misguided prison-industrial complex unfairly targets minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor. It supports the argument made by Angela Davis, who said, “Prisons give the appearance of performing a magic trick. However, prisons don’t make problems disappear—they make people disappear.”

Neoliberals continue to try to convince the public that we need to equip our police officers with weapons that make them seem more like military ground troops. But if we continue down this course, we’ll all just be one more target to be eliminated in The United States of Incarceration.

“This cruise didn’t begin well and it will not end well”, he told Keoke, Heavy and me. His distant mystical look sent shivers up our spines.

In the belly of a ship decades old, in the heat and the humidity and the rank stench of filthy men days unwashed, the crew of the ancient USS Topa rot.

They do their duty as slaves to the U.S. Navy, the supply lifeline of the fleet that hovers off of the coast of Vietnam in 1969, engaged in a never ending war. But to their commanders, as sailors, they are nothing. And as enlisted men, they are even less.

Strangers at first, the men of the USS Topa, a ragtag group from all walks of life, find themselves an ocean away from home, struggling together not against the communists their country is fighting, but against their own officers.

Slowly but surely, under the iron fist of the Navy, prejudice, hatred and fear run rampant among the crew. And amidst the long voyage, they are left to wonder if any of them will make it back to the states at all…

By Carol M. Maloney

On June 9, 2009, Carol M. Maloney, a veteran teacher, experienced a transient ischemic attack in the left hemisphere of her brain. She helplessly observed her mind deteriorate to the point where she could not speak, walk, read, identify household objects, or recall her family. Maloney traveled between the worlds of the surreal and the logical. The stroke resulted in aphasia, the loss of communication and other functions of her left hemisphere.

After eighteen months of rehabilitation, she was finally able to communicate with others by using her hand as a metronome. The frustration of having the words and sentences formed in her mind but being unable to share them caused frustration and depression. Her verbal abilities suffered, along with her reading and comprehension skills. Even so, hard work, strong will, and persistence has allowed her to reach out to other teachers to offer new insight into the minds of her beloved special-education and reading-disabled students.

In this, her story, Maloney turns her experience into a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of her students’ difficulties and to share that knowledge with other teachers.

“Ms. Carol Maloney has written a compelling story that chronicles her amazing life before, during, and after her devastating stroke. She writes with frankness that touches one’s heart. Her story will lend encouragement to those who have suffered a stroke as well as offer strategies to those who have a loved one recovering from one. Carol Maloney developed aphasia after her stroke. I am happy to say that she has survived and conquered both the devastation of her stroke and her aphasia. I know this first hand: she conducts amazing PowerPoint presentations to my graduate class at Rivier University each semester. She is an inspiration to all who want to improve themselves. In this book, Carol clearly describes the strategies that she used to help her become the functioning writer and speaker that she is today.”
