The Fifth Vital
by Mike Majlak and Riley J. Ford
Genre: Nonfiction
#1 AMAZON BESTSELLER!
Mike Majlak was a seventeen-year-old from a loving, middle-class family in Milford, Connecticut, when he got caught up in the opioid epidemic that swept the nation. For close to a decade thereafter, his life was a wasteland of darkness and despair. While his peers were graduating from college, buying homes, getting married, having kids, and leading normal lives, Mike was snorting OxyContin, climbing out of cars at gunpoint, and burying his childhood friends. Unable to escape the noose of addiction, he eventually lost the trust and support of everyone who had ever loved him. Alone, with nothing but drugs to keep him company, darkness closed in, and the light inside him–the last flicker of hope–began to dim. His dreams, potential, and future were all being devoured by a relentless addiction too powerful to fight. Despair filled him as he realized he wasn’t going to survive.
Somehow, he did…
HE NOT ONLY SURVIVED,
HE THRIVED.
Now he’s a social media personality with millions of followers, and an entrepreneur, marketer, podcaster, YouTuber, and author who hopes to use his voice to shine a light for those whose own lights have grown dim.

The dark secrets of the London coven are about to explode into the light of day

Thursday, July 25th, 2019
Exile
in Darkness
by
Annalisa Carr
Genre:
Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy 
 
 
Heritage
and magic matter to the London covens.

 

Aristocratic
witch, Isabella Pethany, has heritage but not magic.

 

Underworld
powerbroker, amnesiac vampire Maldit, has magic but no
heritage.

 

Lukas
Sindis, coven sorcerer and famous psychopath, has both.

 

 

Isabella
knows her null magic status makes her an embarrassment to her family,
but since Natalie, her sister, was murdered, she is all they have
left. Guilt makes her willing to do almost anything to compensate for
her lack of value, but her grandmother’s proposal to match her with
Lukas, in an attempt to bring strong magic back to their bloodline,
is a step too far.

 

 

When
Maldit rescues a strange witch from hunting vampires, his main
concern is to limit trouble in his territory. Everyone knows witches
are troublesome, and this one is no exception. Her proximity slashes
through his damaged memory, allowing him to catch glimpses of his
forgotten past.

 

 

Drugs
have suppressed Lukas’s magic for almost twenty years, filling him
with a reservoir of trapped power. When he escapes, his magic flies
free, washing over Maldit and Isabella, and clearing away the spells
paralysing both of them.

 

 

The
dark secrets of the London coven are about to explode into the light
of day.

Echoes by Nancy Campbell Allen

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

This real mystery based novel had me glued to its pages. Nancy did a great job of making old time Italy and present day USA flow swiftly alongside each other. The characters are as likable as a real person with a real life would be. I enjoyed the way the suspense keeps you guessing in every chapter.

The story is that of a young man, Jon, who has known nothing but hard life since age 3, when (more…)

Communication with our kids a must.

Monday, March 1st, 2010
As parents many times we disassociate what we tell our children with the message they are receiving. I have seen first hand how a word, a sign, or even the rolling of eyes can influence the future of our children. Many times we believe that our words are just a saying; they know we don’t mean it.
But, do they know that we don’t mean it? Do they know that we are frustrated with the situation and not with them? Do they know that many times we feel inadequate as parents?
What do you think the effect on a little boy will be by the time he is a teen if you repeatedly tell him that he talks like a girl? I would suggest that insecurity with his own masculinity will be the result. He probably will be quiet, introverted, and ashamed of himself. Nevertheless, all that we put inside ourselves one day must come out, and what will happen when this child explodes, perhaps in a violent outburst that shatters his and others’ lives? (more…)
