The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.
Allegra has never been exactly normal. She's never had any friends, but that’s never bothered her. She has acquaintances on her high school’s dance team, and she can get pretty much anything she wants out of boys, but what she really wants is to watch someone’s life leave their body, exhaling their last breath.
Robin has fallen for Ally, fast and hard. Even though they agreed to move in together as just friends, she can’t stop her feelings. She’ll do whatever Allegra wants...from breaking up with her boyfriend to planning something sinister.
They have the perfect plan. But when Allegra’s mother starts to piece things together, it just takes a little manipulation to put everything into a whole new perspective.

Lies. Betrayal. Memories.
These are the things that haunt Michelle every day. Though she tries desperately to numb the thoughts of her past with alcohol, no amount is ever enough to quiet them entirely. Even after relocating from the Midwest to Long Beach, California, her past has managed to follow her. Drowning her thoughts in alcohol only leads to more experiences that terrorize her. She tries to make friends, attempts to make money, even thinks about dating, and it all seems to fall back into the same self-destructive pattern of events. How is she ever supposed to pull herself out of the tornado that is her own life?
Your Radiant Life
By Dez Stephens
All books are about hope.
That’s some advice a young writer received from her literary agent. Maybe it sounds too simple but there’s truth here. Acclaimed Coach and Master Trainer, Dez Stephens, offers this collection to mark the 10th Anniversary of the Radiant Coaches Academy. The authors are students she has trained over the years. They represent a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures and circumstances. Each of the 28 storytellers offers their unique and inspiring path toward hope. Perhaps you will find yourself nodding your head, saying to yourself, “I know exactly what they mean!” Even better: One or more stories may be the catalyst that draws you closer to a critical tipping point—one that leads to a more radiant life!
Your Radiant Life is not meant to offer a blueprint or map. Instead, it is hoped you will find a sense of community that may accompany you along your own magnificent journey.

When you’re at a restaurant, do you read the menu from right to left, or left to right? In other words, do you check out the prices before picking the food? This book is about being a Qualitarian - or becoming a Qualitarian. At a very basic level, a Qualitarian would always read the menu left to right. They would discern what they WANT to eat (on the left). Then they may move their eyes to the right to determine whether it is within their budget. It’s not a disregard of cost. But the primary decision answers this question: “What would constitute a quality meal for me, on this particular day, in this particular context?”
Now expand that attitude to everything! How do I want to live? How do I build a measure of quality into all my relationships? What do I expect from employment? How can my leisure time provide healing, relaxation, invigoration and stimulation? What if my work and relationships and home life could provide the same? These are questions raised by a Qualitarian.
In story after story, acclaimed Coach and Master Trainer, Dez Stephens, offers real-life strategies and observations leading to a life marked by quality. Whether you were born into an abundance or scarcity, regardless of calamity or good fortune, the path to a Qualitarian life is all about meaningful and mindful choices.
Kraken of Eden
By George Moakley
Staring into your eyes, savoring every moment as they eat you alive…
Earth is no longer home. Earth’s ecology has been devastated, and her human inhabitants fled to the stars. After centuries of life on sterile space stations and under artificial domes, at last, a glimmer of hope is found by a distant star.
In the wake of a breath-taking discovery, Captain Lubandi leads her crew and passengers across the desolation of interstellar space to Eden, a pristine and wild planet. Is this planet humanity’s chance at redemption? Or will humanity fall victim once again to the metaphorical snake in the garden? Survival depends on science, on unraveling the mystery of a hidden and horrific predator, before the monsters can breed and destroy Captain Lubandi’s ship, her crew, and their second chance at a planetary home.

“She walked along the rocky path to a neighboring meadow. As Willow approached the giant Alligator Juniper at the center, the tree’s limbs twisted to reshape the throne, adjusting to fit her body. Once the Guardian wreath was placed on her head, she comprehended the words of the ancients calling on her ties to the earth, linking her forever to the Coconino Forest. She felt the connection building until she could clearly see the edge of the forest for the first time. Willow vaguely heard the words expounded on the accomplishments of the Ashbrook Dryads and how their spirits would guide her to greatness.”
In the small town of Bellemont, Arizona, most humans know to stay clear of the forest—especially at night. Strange, unexplainable things have been known to occur. Bray isn’t interested in rumors, and he doesn’t believe in myths. He’s made a name for himself in IT and is all about logic. He’s just purchased a beautiful cabin retreat in the woods. Despite numerous wilderness accidents, he refuses to leave. The connection he feels to this place is unlike anything he’s ever experienced before.
Evicting the human should be simple, but Willow’s Dryad powers aren’t working. This human is enchanting her instead of the other way around. The more time she spends with Bray, the more she realizes he’s not a threat, and she’s starting to succumb to her feelings for him. But humans are forbidden from having anything to do with her world. Council will never allow such a union, even if it could be the key to everything.

The Legacy He Left Me
By Lovern Gordon
ACES: Adverse Childhood Experiences. This clinical term was brought to life for Lovern Gordon as she grew up on the island of Trinidad in the 1980's. Her mother, affectionately dubbed Mummy, suffered mental and physical abuse at the hands of her emotionally detached father, Lloydie. Lovern, her younger siblings, and Mummy were able to migrate to the United States in the late 1990's. Even though she had vowed she would never become a victim, based on what she had witnessed as child, a sinister romantic partner would repeat the trauma of Lovern's past in her own adult relationship.
Rising from the ashes of these two severe domestic violence situations, Lovern established her own awareness foundation in 2011. Through her advocacy work at Love Life Now, she educates the masses around the issue of abuse, as well as how to become part of the solution and provides resources to victims and survivors. The organization helps victims thrive after leaving toxic situations, just like Lovern now thrives everyday thanks to her strength, positivity, and perseverance, despite the legacy of abuse left by her father.
