New York Times bestselling author of Life as I Blow It Sarah Colonna is back with a hilarious, honest look at life in her late thirties—in all its messy, pants-missing glory. How does a gal with a successful career, great friends, and a razor-sharp wit find herself wandering pants-less through the hallways of a casino hotel in Iowa on New Year’s Eve? Ask Sarah Colonna. Has Anyone Seen My Pants? is a laugh-out-loud trip around America (and Mexico!) with Sarah as she braves crying in nail salons, mother-daughter road trips, Iowan casinos, and single-shaming resorts. From a fling-gone-wrong to friend breakups and a new romance, Sarah’s signature wit and sharp observations take you on a journey at once so deviously funny and surprisingly compassionate that it might just steal your heart—not to mention your pants.

At the conclusion of the dinner, Chancellor Theobald Bethmann-Hollweg opened the congratulatory part of the program with a toast to His Imperial and Royal Majesty Wilhelm II Hohenzollern, by the Grace of God, German Emperor and King of Prussia. We, the assembled here, renew our faith in a man so various that he seems guided by the Grace and hand of God. Long live our Emperor!” “Hoch! Hoch! Hoch!” exclaimed the guests, each one clinking his neighbors’ wine glass. “Due to the long list of tonight’s speakers, it has been agreed that each personage will limit their speeches to five minutes. At the end of the ceremonies, guests are welcome to view the many gifts presented to His Majesty in honor of his twenty-fifth anniversary.” “With His Majesty’s permission, I wish to present Herr Andrew Carnegie from America. Herr Carnegie, a Scottish-born American is an industrialist turned philanthropist. As is well known worldwide, he built Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Steel Company. With his fortune made, the man of humble beginnings turned to philanthropy with special interests in education.” “With unselfish thoughts, he founded the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. From his adopted Pennsylvania home, he endowed the Carnegie University and Carnegie museums. Over the years, his generosity led to the establishment of many libraries, schools, and universities in America.” “In spite of his busy daily schedule, Andrew Carnegie found time to write several books, including the well received ‘Gospel of Wealth, and dozens of magazine and newspaper articles.” ‘It is with great pleasure that I offer the podium to Herr Andrew Carnegie.” “Thank you, Chancellor Bethmann-Hollweg.” The Chancellor who stood a foot higher than the American bent forward to shake Carnegie’s hand which led to a titter among the audience. After spreading his notepaper on the lectern, the philanthropist turned to the Emperor. “Thank you very much, Your Majesty, for inviting me here today.” Wilhelm nodded several times exposing a broad grin. Carnegie’s carefully trimmed white beard glowed under a dozen closely placed incandescent lights. The audience saw a kindly, old man’s face that looked more like a favorite uncle that a millionaire. “I bring greetings and congratulations to His Majesty from the great metropolis of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania populated by a half-million German descendents.” His voice revealed a hint of Scottish burr. “The world’s greatest steel producing center lies between the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers that join to create the great Ohio River that opened the West to adventurous Americans.” “At the time Germany was unified in 1871, Pittsburgh was a village of 75,000 inhabitants. Today, it is a thriving metropolis, the fifth largest city in the United States. It was steel that created work for thousands of families. Steel provided them with schools, hospitals, fine roads and tall buildings.” “At the same time we learned that Berlin was on a parallel growth pattern. I believe that such growth is the result of peace throughout both lands. We can all agree that war is absent as economic growth brings full bellies and general happiness to the people.” The audience shouted, “Hoch! Hoch! Hoch!” “I want to share with you a secret I’ve kept for many years. I am not only an industrialist, I am a preacher.” The audience fell silent awaiting an explanation from the diminutive elder. “Yes, dear friends I am a preacher, but a very special type. I preach peace. I preach the peace that our Lord Jesus Christ desired for all mankind. As I turn and face his Majesty Wilhelm II, I see a man who also preaches peace for the world.” “When I first met the Emperor a decade ago, he told me that Europe is too small to be divided into so many small states. He said that he had long considered a plan for a federation of Europe. I asked him what such a scheme would accomplish.

Kevin and Jackie Freiberg’s previous book, Nuts!: Southwest Airline’s Crazy Recipe for Business and Personal Success, described the unconventional leadership that made Southwest an airline industry dynamo. In GUTS!, the Freibergs look at twenty-five gutsy and extraordinarily successful businesses and introduce the chief executives who are creating a new corporate ethos that blows the doors off business-as-usual. Drawing on five years of research, the Freibergs provide a behind-the-scenes look at these intensely focused, passionate, and unconventional leaders and their companies. Among them: • James Blanchard, CEO of Synovus Financial, a financial services giant with more than 16 billion dollars in assets • Roy Spence, Jr., President of GSD&M Advertising, which AdWeek magazine named Southwest Agency of the Year seven times • James Goodnight of SAS, a world leader in intelligence software Although the leaders in the book represent a wide-range of industries, they share a common vision: They see business as a heroic cause and understand that good leadership isn’t a matter of position, but of influence. They reject hierarchical rules, rituals, and expectations, and have replaced in-the-box management with a culture based on passion and innovation. They regard their employees not as “human resources,” but as individuals with unique gifts and talents. And make everyone in the company responsible for the company’s brand and culture. An exciting follow-up to Nuts!, which has sold nearly 500,000 copies in hardcover and paperback, GUTS! proves that it is possible to have fun, live your values, and still make money.

Terror Hits The Fan In the second shocking installment of Ray Garton's six-part Frankenstorm, a natural disaster sets off a deadly chain reaction of fear, panic, paranoia—and uncontrollable rage—in the ultimate fight for survival. . . Frankenstorm With the storm of the century tearing up the northern California coast, internet blogger and conspiracy expert Ivan Renner has other things on his mind—namely, uncovering the mystery behind an abandoned hospital used as a government lab. Joining him on his investigation is military veteran and survivalist Ollie Monk. While Ivan follows leads about missing homeless people to confirm his theory about secret biological experiments, Ollie follows his gut. With his own trained platoon of armed mercenaries, Ollie is prepared to ambush the laboratory just as the storm hits. But when the fateful moment arrives—and the bullets begin to fly—their surprise attack backfires in ways not even they could prepare for. It unleashes the test subjects. It spreads the virus. It seals their fate. . .forever. This time, there's no fighting back. The conspiracy theories are true. Praise For Ray Garton "Scary. . .involving. . .mature and thoughtful." —Stephen King on Dark Channel "Gripping, original, and sly." —Dean Koontz on Live Girls "Ray Garton is, and always has been, one of horror fiction's great innovators."—F.

‘One of the funniest books I have read. Ever!… I absolutely LOVED this book and I just know that it’s going to be in my top books of the year!’ Star Crossed Reviews, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It’s normal for your washing machine to get more action than you, right? I wake up, bleary-eyed. It’s been two years, six months and three hours since I last shaved my legs, and the llama-patterned knickers I’m wearing have seen better days. We have seven minutes before the kids wake up, and my husband shuffles closer. ‘Ouch,’ he says, a piece of Lego sticking into his back. Then, a light comes on in the landing. Small footsteps creep down the stairs. A little voice screams, ‘IS SOMEONE COMING TO MAKE BREAKFAST?!’ All hope of having some ‘alone time’ is replaced with wondering if we’ve run out of Cheerios, thinking about the overflowing laundry, and remembering that I forgot to take out the recycling. Again. Just a typical Monday morning for the Morton family… Except today, when I go downstairs in my dressing gown, I find something. Something belonging to my husband. Something that definitely wasn’t in the wedding vows. And it’s either going to make us… or break us. An utterly hilarious and unmissable novel for anyone who has ever felt like they spend more time washing the dishes than getting lucky.
