Thrown Under The Bus is a one-of-a-kind saga about a vivacious young woman of humble beginnings in pursuit of the American Dream who is forced into an unimaginable legal quandary by a mean-spirited governmental employer hell bent on revenge. What begins as a humiliating demotion for her refusal to play dirty with the boys quickly culminates into 19 years of litigation amidst an inconceivably hostile work environment that nearly drives her to the brink of insanity as she stages a valiant fight to see this harrowing nightmare to an end. Paying the ultimate price for her endeavors lies in what the author dubs the "triangle of doom" - the culmination of our medical, judicial & governmental systems - a vortex within which she unwittingly becomes ensnared that proves to wreak unimaginable, irrevocable havoc on her life. This story, with its frightening implications, begs the question: Is the American Dream really ours for the taking - or can it just be taken away? Read it - and be warned.

As the wife of an alcoholic, author Harmony Rose searched for some validity to her emotions: she didn’t want to feel crazy anymore or continue to carry the shame and blame that came with her husband’s alcoholism. In Married under the Influence, she shares her story of living year after year with a husband who is an alcoholic. With excerpts from her journal entries, Rose tells how all she ever wanted was to be loved by the man she had given her heart to, but she had no idea how to reach him, even briefly contemplating suicide. Then, she had a spiritual awakening that changed their lives forever. She tells the details of her journey to not only help her understand and heal, but to help others. Including interviews with recovering alcoholics and with other wives whose husbands are alcoholics, Married under the Influence offers stories of strength, love, and hope. It shows how forgiveness can free you from your own emotional prison and how loving unconditionally doesn’t have to mean losing yourself.

A Song to Die For -- a rousing tale mixing love, music, and mystery from Spur Award–winning author Mike Blakely. It's 1975 and guitarist and singer/songwriter Creed Mason hopes to ride the new wave of Texas-style, Austin-based country music all the way back to the big time. A one-hit wonder whose Nashville career was cut short by a trip to Vietnam, Creed is desperate to get back into the business. His break arrives when a country legend, Luster Burnett, comes out of a fifteen-year retirement for one last album and tour in order to pay off a huge debt to the I.R.S. As Luster's new guitarist and band manager, Creed jumps at the chance of a lifetime. Rosa Martini, a beautiful young mob princess from Las Vegas, is found dead just outside of Austin. Texas Ranger Captain Hooley Johnson looks into the case, only to find a second young woman murdered—a friend of Rosa's. To complicate things, Rosa's adoptive brother, mob hit man Franco Martini, is spotted nosing around Austin in the wake of the murders. Soon it appears to Johnson, and to Creed, that the mob-related murders and the band are somehow connected. When the band wins an unexpected booking at the biggest casino in Vegas, Creed begins to wonder what kind of contract his band is being set up for—a major-label recording deal, or a mob hit?

By turns gleefully precise and happily contrarian, this is a highly opinionated guide to better communication. In Literally, the Best Language Book Ever, author Paul Yeager attacks with a linguistic scalpel the illogical expressions and misappropriated meanings that are so commonplace and annoying. Identifying hundreds of common language miscues, Yeager provides an astute look at the world of words and how we abuse them every day. For the grammar snobs looking for any port in a storm of subpar syntax, or the self-confessed rubes seeking a helping hand, this witty guide can transform even the least literate into the epitome of eloquence.

America is in danger of losing the constitutional republic created by the Founding Fathers. Since the beginning of the progressive era, the federal government has steadily encroached on the rights of the states and the people. Yet today, we are inundated with politicians of both parties who seek new ideas and innovative ways to make government work, rather than solutions for preserving our political heritage. To restore our republic, we need to look to the past, to the political fathers of old who made the nation the best and brightest on earth. Grover Cleveland was the last of those fathers. As a mayor, governor, and president, Cleveland dealt with many of the same troubles we face today—the public character and behavior of our candidates, the role of government in the everyday lives of the people, the burden of taxation, the distribution of wealth, government involvement in an economic depression, monetary policy, and complex foreign affairs. By studying Cleveland’s policies and ideals, we can relearn those forgotten lessons of ancient times and restore the American republic.

The Rebellion Of Absalom

With extraordinary range and literary energy, the story of Absalom’s rebellion in 2 Samuel ranks as the most elaborate and extensively narrated internal political event in the Hebrew Bible, complete with a host of scandalous and sordid events: illicit sex, murder, cover-up, petty crime, to name a few. For many students approaching the historical books of the Bible, however, texts often fail to address the vitality of this most turbulent period of King David’s career. Bodner addresses this shortcoming with his The Rebellion of Absalom, a lively analysis of the early monarchy of Israel, written by a recognized commentator of the Bible’s historical books. Concise and insightful, each chapter incrementally focuses on the stages of David’s rise to power and Absalom’s early life and rebellion. Crucial issues in the development of Israel’s monarchy are embedded in this story, including: royal legitimation divine election succession usurpation divine and human punishment. The Rebellion of Absalom is a student-friendly, culturally savvy approach to one of the most important episodes in deciding how the kings of Israel would be determined throughout the monarchic period.
