Space scientist, Carin Gonzales, and former submarine commander, Jake Sabio, are two strangers drifting separately through life when a thunderous explosion above the giant Barringer Meteor Crater inexplicably brings them together, transforming both in unpredictable ways.

Now able to see and smell more precisely and move in ways that are clearly impossible, Gonzales and Sabio soon realize that these kinds of life-changing alterations do not come without a price. Worse yet, they soon notice that others who witnessed the explosion are now dead from a seemingly incurable infection. The CDC wants nothing more than to lock them up in a lab for study. Special Agent Will Greenfield wants them for questioning. Contract killer Antonio Crubari would be happy if they would just hurry up and die, but he is willing to speed up the process if need be.

Time is running out for Gonzales and Sabio. But even as they struggle to survive and find a cure for the deadly infection, they uncover a secret of monumental proportions that changes everything-including the future.

Author: Susan Allison
Publisher: Balboa Press
ISBN: 9781452537764
Pages: 119
Published: August 2011

After years of not paying attention to the honest voices inside you, you may not remember how to listen to your intuition. This disconnection may have caused you to feel worn down or depressed, weakened, and powerless, and left your immune systems vulnerable and open to illness. In Empowered Healer, author Dr. Susan Allison helps you relearn how to access and listen to your inner guidance and become empowered to take action to heal yourself completely-both physically and emotionally.

Allison has spent more than twenty years developing a formula to help you:

• Believe in yourself and stop blocking your healing
• Fill with power and create a team to support you
• Tune into and listen to your physical symptoms
• Find the emotional causes of your distress
• Release physical and emotional pain
• Create and live the life of your dreams

Using anecdotes and examples from her personal experiences as a healer, Allison communicates the keys to believing in your own power to restore yourself to wholeness. A powerhouse of wisdom, Empowered Healer helps you heal from the inside out to create greater happiness in every area of your life.

This practical text presents four stages in your physical, emotional and spiritual healing. First, in Part I, you learn to believe that you deserve to heal from your discomfort. The exercises in Part I help to release any self-limiting beliefs and negativity in order to realize without a doubt that you can heal yourself. Next, in Part II, you learn how to receive divine and earthly help, filling with infinite, universal power and with love in order to feel more empowered to heal yourself. In Part III, you follow the four steps of Empowered Healing by turning inward to the site of your physical or emotional issue, visualizing and then dialoguing with what you find, visualizing the removal of any intrusion, and bringing in light and color to heal the area and return it to normalcy. In Part IV, you discover more about who you are, where you are, and how to make positive changes in every part of your life.

Contemporary Fiction – Nicholas: The Fantastic Origin of Santa Claus

Nicholas: The Fantastic Origin of Santa Claus
Author: Cody W Urban
Publisher: BookLocker
ISBN: 978-1614344865
Pages: 376
Published: September 2011

After a betrayal and a stolen love, a Roman soldier takes a path of revenge by igniting hope in the people to revolt against a corrupt governor, fulfilling his destiny to become the saint we now know as Santa Claus.

Did you know Nicholas of Myra lived in a time of Roman oppressive turmoil and persecution?

Did you know he is counted as patron saint of sailors and archers as well as children?

When his faith was outlawed and his people afflicted, Nicholas boldly stood against the tyranny in such a way that I call him “the Batman of 300AD.” After a betrayal, this average Roman soldier finds himself left for dead, floating in the ice-cold Danube River to the far north of Rome. If not for the aid of a clandestine race of Earth-bound Angels, known as Elves by the Scandinavians, Nicholas would have been a name long forgotten. After uncovering the truth behind his betrayal, and of the stolen love back home in Lycia, Nicholas leaves the Realm and travels with the Nordic sailors, honing his skills as a warrior, and ventures home on a path for revenge. His quest takes him to discover a far more sinister plot and brewing darkness in his homeland-one that plagues upon the innocence of youth-and the rushing river of destiny sweeps Nicholas upon a grand adventure culminating in the fulfillment of his destiny; to be the saint we now know as Santa Claus.

Nicholas: The Fantastic Origin of Santa Claus written by Cody W Urban is the thrilling exploration into the legends and myths behind numerous Christmas traditions, from the Norse Yuletide to the Roman Sol Invictus, and a ride down the torrents of fate as a reluctant young man steps into the immortal shoes of the patron saint of children.

Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 978-1-4620-3268-6
Pages: 312
Published: August 2011

Upon returning from Afghanistan, journalist John Webster discovers a gang war in his backyard. Now he must find a way to survive in this Canadian warzone-or die in the crossfire.

John Webster has seen the terrible things human beings can do. He’s an experienced investigative journalist, recently returned from the war in Afghanistan. John saw hell over there; he looked death straight in the face. He is glad to be back to the normalcy of his Canadian home-that is, until he realizes there is a war brewing in his own backyard, and “peace” is a word no longer spoken.

John gets caught up in the battle between two of the most powerful and murderous criminal gangs in the city. Using what he learned on the foreign battlefields, he stays alive, despite the price on his head. The only way to save his own life is to find the man responsible for the brutal neighborhood bloodshed. When the police slap a subpoena on him, though, John finds his only solace on the streets.

Suddenly, John is back in a warzone, fighting for his life. Will he be able to stop the bloodthirsty crime lords? The flashbacks to Afghanistan threaten to pull John into darkness. Soon, the past and present collide, and he can’t tell which way is up or down. The need for redemption may be stronger than the need for survival as John Webster finds himself on his most dangerous assignment yet.
