Colin St. Claire is on a dangerous mission. His young son is missing, and he is on a self-appointed quest to find the boy, or at least find the man he believes is responsible. Fueled by uppers and a profound lack of sleep, Colin’s road soon becomes an uncontrollable spiral of blurry white lines, of fleeting forms in the night, ghosts of memory as intangible as vapor . . . Assisting him is Robert Heim, a former private investigator who lost his license in the line of duty—and it is a sense of warped duty that still ties him to Colin, though his own family, a loving wife and children, beckons him back home . . . The answers for both men may lie not with the man they believe is the perpetrator, but with a long-suffering farmer’s wife, Beverly “Sis” Pruitt, whose own daughter was claimed by violence, years prior.

In the shape of a noir thriller, Curnutt fashions a gripping tale of the consequences of unchecked grief, of painful truths hidden as though they were dark secrets, and what salvation remains possible for good men who enter the darkness and become the ghosts they are chasing.

“The writing is unobtrusively brilliant… See for yourself.”
—George Garrett, Poet Laureate of Virginia

The Vigorous Mind by Ingrid Cummings

ingridAbout Ingrid

Ingrid Cummings is a journalist, essayist, independent scholar, communications expert, and international speaker.   A Contributing Editor at Indianapolis Monthly magazine and an award-winning newspaper columnist, she also teaches college courses at Indiana University, produces a radio show called Rubicon Salon, and runs a PR/Media business called Rubicon Communications LLC.  She calls upon all 20 years of her teaching and coaching experience to animate the Creative process through a variety of original workshops.  Named one of “Eight to Watch in ’08” by The Indianapolis Star, her first book, “The Vigorous Mind,” is due out in Jan. 2009.

33927987-1About The Vigorous Mind: Cross-Train Your Brain to Break Through Mental, Emotional, and Professional Boundaries

The Vigorous Mind proposes that the way to health and happiness is to “cross-train your brain” by intentionally diversifying the portfolio of your activities. Using historical as well as contemporary “Renaissance people” as inspiration, the book argues for a return to a generalist gestalt during the hours of the day when we’re not pursuing ever-narrower career specialties. With a distinctive approach to time management, The Vigorous Mind puts a contemporary spin on what it meant to be “well rounded,” a notion that sounds delightfully quaint today.

The book taps into one of today’s hottest trends: The application of neuroscience to everyday brain health. Scientists are proving that strategically pursuing a broad spectrum of sometimes-counterintuitive activities can actually strengthen your brain and make you better at everything you undertake.

The secret is consistent, incremental “baby steps,” in the spirit of the newly popular Japanese belief system called Kaizen. Kaizen is an ancient Japanese Zen philosophy that advocates taking small, even trivial steps to accomplish large goals. The intention is for the reader to make accelerative progress toward their cross-training goals by committing just 20 minutes of concentrated attention per day (what the author calls “Triumph in Twenty”) applied to any topic of their choice.

Ingrid Cummings makes the case that through knowledge of seemingly unrelated fields and interests, readers can fortify themselves against burn-out, become more fulfilled, better at their jobs, and more creative — in short, develop a truly vigorous mind.

About The Memorist:

The Dreads are back.

As a child, Meer Logan was haunted by memories of another time and place always accompanied by the faint strains of elusive music. Now the dreads are back. The past has reached out again in the form of a strange letter that sets her on a search to unlock the mystery of who she once was.

“THE MEMORIST is a riveting and suspenseful page-turner that throws open a magical door to the past, revealing how history may influence not just our individual destinies, but the future of us all.”

– NYT Bestselling Author, Steve Berry

Zig-Zagging by Tom Wilson

tom-wilson-150About Tom Wilson

Tom Wilson is the author of the phenomenally popular cartoon Ziggy, which is syndicated internationally in more than 600 newspapers. As President of Ziggy and Friends, Inc., and founder of Character Matters (www.charactermatters.net), Wilson has worked extensively with national organizations, non-profits, and corporations. A frequent speaker, branding consultant, artist, and father of two, Tom continues to write.

3848About Zig-Zagging: Loving Madly, Losing Badly- How Ziggy Saved My Life

An Intersection of Lives, Love, and Loss Throughout a Cartoonist’s Artful Life Journey

For decades Ziggy has fostered a strong, personal connection with millions of readers, and now the man who has been the driving force behind Ziggy for more than two decades shares the dramatic and multidimensional story behind the enigmatic and complex world of cartooning. In this compelling narrative filled with humor, heartache, hope, original artwork, and family photos, Wilson shares his personal recollections as a boy who witnessed the whimsical creation of a future American icon, until adulthood thrusts him into the position of clandestine creative caretaker for Ziggy after his brilliant father, Tom Wilson Sr., becomes chronically ill. When his wife is taken by cancer and leaves him alone to raise two young sons, Wilson must reconcile his anger and paralyzing depression over his devastating loss, while continuing to bring smiles to others around the world in his daily comics.

It is through the process of grieving, reaching the depths of raw despair, that Wilson realizes the meaning of life’s journey. The role Ziggy plays in Wilson’s transformative experience brings clarity and comfort to his creator as together they navigate the tragedies and triumphs of life.

Wilson’s message is that every detour is a destination unto itself, and regardless of our plans, it is what we don’t see coming that often affects us most. Our journeys are a zig-zagging series of unexpected events and it’s up to us to turn them into meaningful destinations with a purpose.   Through this book, readers will find humor, and heartache turned to hope, with a familiar and trusted friend, and discover a new one in Tom Wilson.

About The Mechanics of Falling and Other Stories

mechanics-of-fallingThis book presents eleven new stories that are set in and around San Francisco by an award-winning author. The stories in this collection explore those moments when the seemingly fixed coordinates of our lives abruptly give way – when mother love fractures, a faithful husband abandons his family, a conscientious middle-class life implodes, or loyalty demands an excruciating sacrifice. The characters share a fundamental predicament, the struggle to name and embrace some faith that can break their fall. In equal measure, they hunger for and resist this elusive possibility and what it demands of them. “The Mechanics of Falling and Other Stories” deals with a range of circumstances and relationships, and with characters who must decide what they are willing to risk for the sake of transformation, or for the right to refuse it. The stories trace the effort to traverse the boundaries between one state and another – between conviction and self-doubt, recklessness and despair, resignation and rebellion. And each story propels the reader to imagine what will happen next, to register the unfinished and always precarious quality of every life.

Tea and Other Ayama Na Tales by Eleanor Bluestein


About Eleanor Bluestein

Tea and Other Ayama Na Tales won the G.S. Sharat Chandra Prize for Short Fiction in 2007. “In the tradition of Robert Olen Butler and Bob Shacochis,” writes Marly Swick, O. Henry Award winner who selected this book for the prize, “Bluestein is a writer who illuminates our cultural differences, while exploring the intricacies of the human condition.”

Publisher’s Weekly calls Bluestein’s voice “captivating,” and Al Christman, author of Target Hiroshima writes, “These Ayama Na tales are sly, sensuous and sagacious-profoundly funny and profoundly serious.”

Eleanor Bluestein has worked as a science teacher, editor of science textbooks, and designer of multimedia educational materials for Internet delivery. For a decade she co-edited Crawl Out Your Window, a San Diego based literary journal featuring the work of local writers and artists. She wrote fiction and studied French language in Paris, France, in 1989-90. Currently, she lives with her husband in La Jolla, California, where she writes, tends a vegetable garden, and volunteers as a court appointed special advocate for foster children. She has a son and a daughter.

About Tea and other Ayama Na Tales


The ten stories in Tea and other Ayama Na Tales take place in the fictional country of Ayama Na, a small Southeast Asian nation recovering from a devastating internal coup and a long drought, both of which have left the population reeling.

During the coup and its aftermath, roughly a quarter of the population died, including (because they were targeted for extinction) almost all of the country’s artists, intellectuals, musicians, writers, poets and teachers. Land mines pock the countryside, amputees beg on the streets, and in this fledgling democracy, graft and corruption infect every level of government.

Against this backdrop of sorrow and loss, as the ordinary citizens of Ayama Na struggle to rebuild their nation and their personal lives, westernization and pop culture are rushing in, threatening whatever cultural traditions have survived. The characters pulsate with the tension between the modern and the traditional, between personal desire and the impulse to sacrifice for family or country.

Yet, with open hearts and minds, and a huge will to thrive, the gritty characters in these stories go about their daily lives. They cook burgers in McDonald’s, work the streets as prostitutes, run car dealerships, or compete for the Miss Universe title-just some of the circumstances in which the reader encounters them-and they yearn for, strive for, and ache for meaningful lives. Whether kind or cruel, resilient or crushed by their problems, the people of Ayama Na exhibit the tragic and comic elements of people everywhere.

The fictional country of Ayama Na is inspired by the sights and sounds of Southeast Asia.  A street of fortune tellers in Ayama Na borrows details from one in Singapore; royal palaces, Buddha shrines, and hill tribes echo their counterparts in Thailand; sidewalk cafes in Ayama Na’s capital roll up corrugated metal exteriors and blare music to the street as they do in Viet Nam. But in emotional content and historical detail, Ayama Na most closely resembles Cambodia, where a brave young population, still rebuilding both country and culture in the wake of the Khmer Rouge genocide, operates with a seriousness of purpose and good humor that fills the author of this collection with awe and admiration.

She could only imagine these people’s lives….

Kathryn Maughan – Did I Expect Angels?

About Kathryn

Kathryn Maughan grew up in Roy, Utah and moved to New York City in 1993. She graduated from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, and then moved to Costa Rica for 18 months. Upon her return to New York, she enrolled in Columbia University, where she majored in literature and fiction writing. Later she enrolled in New York University/Tisch School of the Arts Dramatic Writing program, from which she got her Masters of Fine Arts in 2005.

Kathryn’s novel, Did I Expect Angels? was loosely inspired by a September 11 story. Kathryn lived in New York when it happened and was deeply affected, like everybody, by the tragedy and it’s aftermath.

Here is a summary of Did I Expect Angels?: Jennifer Huffaker knows that grief is normal, but she thought she’d get over it—that’s what people do. But it’s been eighteen months since her husband Jack died, and she still can’t focus on her young daughter Kaitlin, can’t accept support from her family, and can’t allow herself to live without the love of her life. Jennifer is angry at everything and everyone—including herself for being so unprepared. But what did she expect? Angels?

On the day after Christmas her anguish finally becomes too much, and Jennifer’s pain culminates in a shattering decision. But this is also the night she runs into Henry, an elderly friend from Costa Rica who has seen more of life’s trials than anyone could know. Henry realizes the devastating depths to which Jennifer has sunk, and he decides that tonight is the night to tell her his story. Touching and incisive, poignant, and sometimes bitingly funny, both Jennifer’s and Henry’s stories intermingle into a tale of love, despair, faith and, ultimately, hope, as Jennifer realizes she has been blessed with the most unexpected angel of all …

Kathleen McCleary – House and Home

About Kathleen

Kathleen McCleary is a reporter and writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Good Housekeeping, More, and Health, and on HGTV.com. She lives in northern Virginia.

Kathleen’s novel, House and Home, is the story of a woman who loves her house so much, she’ll do just about anything to keep it.

Here’s a summary of House and Home: Ellen Flanagan has two precious girls to raise, a cozy neighborhood coffee shop to run, terrific friends, and a sexy husband. She adores her house, a yellow Cape Cod filled with quirky antiques, beloved nooks and dents, and a million memories. But now, at forty-four, she’s about to lose it all.

After eighteen roller-coaster years of marriage, Ellen’s husband, Sam–who’s charismatic, spontaneous, and utterly irresponsible–has disappointed her in more ways than she can live with, and they’re getting divorced. Her daughters are miserable about losing their daddy. Worst of all, the house that Ellen loves with all her heart must now be sold.

Ellen’s life is further complicated by a lovely and unexpected relationship with the husband of the shrewish, social-climbing woman who has purchased the house. Add to that the confusion over how she really feels about her almost-ex-husband, and you have the makings of a delicious novel about what matters most in the end . . .

Set in the gorgeous surroundings of Portland, Oregon, Kathleen McCleary’s funny, poignant, curl-up-and-read debut strikes a deep emotional chord and explores the very notion of what makes a house a home.

The Best Place to Be by Lesley Dormen

About Lesley

LESLEY DORMEN was born in Shaker Heights, Ohio and lives in New York City, where she is the Associate Director of The Writers Studio and teaches fiction writing. Her short stories have been published in The Atlantic Monthly, Ploughshares, Five Points, Open City, Glimmer Train and Ladies’ Home Journal. Two have been included in “100 Other Distinguished Stories” of the year in Best American Short Stories. Her articles, essays, and humor have appeared in magazines that include O, The Oprah Magazine, Elle, Ladies’ Home Journal, Glamour, Redbook, Mademoiselle, Mirabella, Seventeen, Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, Psychology Today and Playboy.

Lesley’s book The Best Place to Be is a novel in stories, and all of the stories are told by the same narrator, Grace, at pivotal moments in her life, between the ages of 18 and 50ish. This is literary fiction with terrific mass appeal–a first person narrator who is page-turningly appealing. Most of the stories are set in Greenwich Village. The book has depth, the stories do not proceed chronologically, they circle around in time, so we see Grace in the round.

Elle magazine, Virginia Woolf meets Candace Bushnell in these funny, beautifully written linked stories of one woman’s struggle to get through the business of ordinary life.” O the Oprah magazine said hers is “…a journey that is smack-your-forehead familiar, and so crazily funny you could cry.”

About Capote in Kansas:

While based on many real and little-known events in the lives of Truman Capote and Harper Lee, it’s an imagined story – a “fantasia” — of their great friendship, and even greater falling out, as Harper retreated from fame, and Truman gulped it down as greedily as he did his beloved “orange drink” (three parts vodka, one part juice.) If you ever loved To Kill a Mockingbird, or any of the fantastic writing of Truman Capote, you’ll want to read this, for which a reading group guide has been prepared as well. Look for Capote in Kansas in paperback October 4th.

The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

About David

David Ebershoff is the author of three novels, the 19th Wife, Pasadena, and The Danish Girl, and a short story collection, The Rose City. His fiction has won a number of awards, including the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Lambda Literary Award, and has been translated into ten languages to critical acclaim.

Random House published his third novel, The 19th Wife, on August 5, 2008, to much acclaim. It immediately hit a number of bestseller lists including that of The New York Times. The novel is about one of Brigham Young’s plural wives, Ann Eliza young, as well as polygamy in the United States today. Publisher’s Weekly called it “an exquisite tour-de-force” and Kirkus Reviews said it was “reminiscent of Wallace Stegner’s Angle of Repose in scope and ambition”, while the Los Angeles Times praised it by saying “it does that thing all good novels do: it entertains us.”

Ebershoff has taught creative writing at New York University and Princeton and currently teaches in the graduate writing program at Columbia University. For many years he was the publishing director of the Modern Library and now is an editor-at-large at Random House. He lives in New York City.

For more information, visit David’s website HERE.

About The 19th Wife

Faith, I tell them, is a mystery, elusive to many, and never easy to explain.

Sweeping and lyrical, spellbinding and unforgettable, David Ebershoff’s The 19th Wife combines epic historical fiction with a modern murder mystery to create a brilliant novel of literary suspense.

It is 1875, and Ann Eliza Young has recently separated from her powerful husband, Brigham Young, prophet and leader of the Mormon Church. Expelled and an outcast, Ann Eliza embarks on a crusade to end polygamy in the United States. A rich account of a family’s polygamous history is revealed, including how a young woman became a plural wife.

Soon after Ann Eliza’s story begins, a second exquisite narrative unfolds–a tale of murder involving a polygamist family in present-day Utah. Jordan Scott, a young man who was thrown out of his fundamentalist sect years earlier, must reenter the world that cast him aside in order to discover the truth behind his father’s death.

And as Ann Eliza’s narrative intertwines with that of Jordan’s search, readers are pulled deeper into the mysteries of love and faith.

Red Sea by EA Benedek

About E.A. Benedek

E.A. Benedek is a journalist and author whose articles and essays have appeared in Newsweek, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, and on NPR, among others. Benedek spent a year following an FBI special agent working counterterrorism and wrote about an F-15C fighter pilot who flew in Operation Shock and Awe. The author has reported extensively on terrorism and developed relationships with high-level informants in the U.S. and abroad. Red Sea is Benedek’s first novel.

About Red Sea

After four commercial airliners are blown out of the sky in international airspace, retired Israeli Special Forces commander Julian Granot is called in to investigate. With the help of an intrepid American journalist, Marie Peterssen, and Morgan Ensley, a maverick FBI agent, Granot makes the horrifying discovery that the crashes were meant to conceal a more diabolical attack. Through an investigation that leads from Jordan to Iraq, through London and Cyprus to New York, Granot and his unorthodox team uncover plans for a scenario that has frightened American security experts for years: a nuclear bomb slipped onto a container and rigged to explode in a major US seaport. Meanwhile, Marie discovers a startling personal connection to the Islamist terrorist behind the plot, a secret that jeopardizes her life and the entire mission.

Based on a real-life elite commando leader and counter-terror expert, Julian Granot is a mysterious, ruthless, but ultimately human and sympathetic spymaster extraordinaire. Marie is a fully-drawn female hero who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty-or fall in love.

About The Memorist:

The Dreads are back.

As a child, Meer Logan was haunted by memories of another time and place always accompanied by the faint strains of elusive music. Now the dreads are back. The past has reached out again in the form of a strange letter that sets her on a search to unlock the mystery of who she once was.

“THE MEMORIST is a riveting and suspenseful page-turner that throws open a magical door to the past, revealing how history may influence not just our individual destinies, but the future of us all.”

– NYT Bestselling Author, Steve Berry

The Memorist will be released Oct. 2008. You can read an excerpt of The MemoristHERE

Jennie Shortridge – Love and Biology at the Center of the Universe

About Jennie

Bestselling author Jennie Shortridge has three published novels:Riding with the Queen, (NAL 2003), Eating Heaven(2005), andLove and Biology at the Center of the Universe (2008). Prior to writing novels, her nonfiction work appeared regularly in magazines and newspapers, including Glamour, Mademoiselle, Natural Home, and others. The Seattle writer has been called “an accomplished and superior novelist” by theStatesmen Journal and “a writer to watch out for,” by the Rocky Mountain News. She tries not to let it go to her head.

About Love and Biology at the Center of the Universe:

Written with keen insight and wit, Jennie Shortridge’s fiction is “rich, funny, sad, sensual, and hopeful.” Now comes a bittersweet novel that asks: how does a good girl know when to finally let herself be bad?

Mira Serafino can see the headlines now: Girl-Scout-Leading, Homeless-Feeding Science Teacher of the Year Goes on Wild Rampage of Sex, Drinking, and Drugs. Well, let her small town of Pacifica, Oregon, think what it will. Forty-five-year-old Mira, the obedient daughter, the supermom, the loyal wife, has left the building…

When she learns that her college-sweetheart husband has been seeing another woman, Mira’s perfect world is shattered and she wants no one, least of all her big Italian family, to know. She heads north—with no destination and little money—stopping only when her car breaks down in Seattle. She takes a job at the offbeat Coffee Shop at the Center of the Universe, where she’ll experience a scary but invigorating freedom, and meet someone she’ll come to love: the new Mira…

About Off the Menu

Off the Menu is being called an extraordinary debut about second-generation Asian-American women trying to live up to society’s high standards, as well as their own.

Even though it’s been ten years since their Houston high school days, co-valedictorians and best friends Whitney Lee, Hercules Huang, and Audrey Henley still delight in their once-a-month get-togethers where they talk, laugh, and confide in each other— although not about everything. Because each young woman has a deep, dark secret they think they could never share. Not even with their best friends. Then, during a girls’ weekend getaway, these three friends wind up revealing their most intimate truths—and realize that to get straight As in the real world, all you have to do is let go of the need to be perfect…

The Green Beauty Guide by Julie Gabriel

About Julie

Julie Gabriel is a registered nutrition specialist (RHN) educated at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. She launched a series of workshops titled ‘New Mom’s Diet’ in Toronto. She is in the process of launching her own organic skincare line called Petite Marie Organics. Julie has been writing and editing fashion and beauty for about 15 years. In 1992 she worked in production at CNN’s Style with Elsa Klensch. She was the associate beauty editor in Harper’s Bazaar (Eastern European editions, 1998-2000), beauty editor in Atmospheres (2001-2001) and has written over five hundred articles and features on fashion, beauty and lifestyle.

She writes on her blog that thanks to her pregnancy, she reconsidered her passion for caviar-based face creams, obnoxious perfumes, and intricate hair highlights. Her conversion to a green goddess was instant and painless. She lost her acne for good, and hasn’t developed a single new wrinkle, she smells good and her hair looks better than ten years ago. Thus being said, don’t expect her to insist that readers abandon manicures or stop shaving their underarms. She is living proof that you can live green and feel good about your looks.

A Canadian living in the UK, she is in a unique position of being able to offer the best the New and Old Worlds came up with when it comes to natural beauty.

About The Green Beauty Guide

Go green and get gorgeous

The promise of beauty is as close as the drugstore aisle—shampoo that gives your hair more body, lotions that smooth away wrinkles, makeup that makes your skin look flawless, and potions that take it all off again. But while conventional products say they’ll make you more beautiful, they contain toxins and preservatives that are both bad for the environment and bad for your body—including synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, and even formaldehyde. In the end, they damage your natural vitality and good looks.

Fortunately, fashion writer, nutritionist, and beauty maven Julie Gabriel helps you find the true path to natural, healthy, green beauty. She helps you decipher labels on every cosmetic product you pick up and avoid toxic and damaging chemicals with her detailed Toxic Ingredients List. You’ll learn valuable tips on what your skin really needs to be healthy, glowing, and youthful.

Julie goes one-step further—and shows you how to make your own beauty products that feed your skin, save your bank account, and are healthy for your body and the environment.

With her friendly, thorough, and helpful advice; fabulous beauty recipes; product recommendations and ratings; Toxic Ingredients List; and a complete appendix of online resources, Julie Gabriel gives you all the information you need to go green without going broke and become a more natural, healthy, and beautiful you.

Keeping Kids Out of the Middle: Child-Centered Parenting in the Midst of Conflict, Separation, and Divorce by Benjamin Garber, Ph.D.

About Benjamin

Dr. Garber has a Bachelor of Arts degree in developmental psychology and psycholinguistics from the University of Michigan, a Master of Science and a Doctorate in child clinical and developmental psychology from the Pennsylvania State University.

About Keeping Kids Out of the Middle: Child-Centered Parenting in the Midst of Conflict, Separation, and Divorce

Are your kids growing up in a war zone? Here’s Your Peace Treaty

When co-parents conflict, their kids get caught in the middle. They become ‘adultified,’ infantilized, and alienated. They’re made into messengers and spies, implicitly forced to grow up too fast or to remain needy for much too long. The antidote: practicing child-centered parenting–consistently creating parenting plans and conflict resolution strategies that genuinely meet children’s emotional and psychological needs–first and foremost and for the rest of their lives.

Keeping Kids out of the Middle is not about divorce, and it’s not about you. It is about your kids. This eye-opening and highly pragmatic book is a here-and-now guide toward better understanding and meeting the needs of your children. You will learn what child-centered parenting is, how to implement it productively, and how to communicate effectively with your parenting partners, no matter the legal status of your relationship, the distance between your homes, or the quality of your intimate relationship.

In Keeping Kids out of the Middle, child psychologist and state certified Guardian ad litem Benjamin Garber offers parents a radically new perspective on co-parenting in the midst of relationship conflict and teaches co-parents how to build a consistent, healthy environment for their children through the art of ’scripting,’ establish better means of communicating and communication styles, and create parenting plans that help keep children protected. Thisis your guide to putting your children’s needs first and giving them the safety net they must have in order to become healthy adults who are able themselves, to some day, keep their own kids out of the middle.

The girl, Willa—now a teenager and one of Nate’s students—lives with her adoptive parents, Joe and Candace, who have nurtured her with their affection and prosperity. When Willa wins a community service internship and begins working at a local women’s shelter, her friendship with a troubled prostitute raises questions about her own biological past. Despite her parent’s love and care, Willa can’t shake her feelings of confusion and abandonment, and Joe and Candace are too preoccupied with their crumbling marriage to realize her unhappiness.Read more.

The Alchemy of Loss by Abigail Carter

About Abby

Abigail Carter was born in Philadelphia and raised in Toronto, Canada. With her husband Arron Dack, she lived in London, Brussels and Boston before settling in Montclair, NJ. Abigail began writing at the age of 38 as a form of catharsis after her husband’s death in the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. Her work has been published in SELF magazine, and online at MSN.com. Before she began writing, Abigail worked as a Web Project Manager for Audible.com, a company that sells downloadable audio books. In July, 2005, Abigail moved to Seattle, WA where she now lives with her two children, Carter, 9 and Olivia, 13.

About The Alchemy of Loss

Abigail Carter is smart, funny, perceptive, and bereft. In the eyes of most, herself included, she had it all- a full life with a loving successful husband and two beautiful children. But in a horrifying instant watched by theworld, it was gone, and her life and her children’s were changed irreparably. How does one learn to live again after tragedy?

The Alchemy of Loss is Abby’s moving story of answering that unimaginable question. Veering away from the trite and pat grief books, which offer one-size-fits-all solutions to this most deeply personal and unique experience, she realizes that each person must forge her own path through grief, and that there are no right answers.

Abby’s journey took her six years, in which she turned everything she knew about herself upside down in order to live again. She charts this journey in the year’s most remarkable memoir. The Alchemy of Loss is her gift to us all- reminding us that life throws up roadblocks we can’t anticipate, and that we cannot live well if we live with regrets.

For more about The Alchemy of Loss, which comes out in paperback in January 2009, read an excerpt HERE , visit Abby’s website HERE, and read her blog HERE.

You Lost Him at Hello by Jess McCann

About Jess

Jess McCann is unlike any dating coach out there. Instead of the usual therapy-based date coaching, Jess takes a unique approach to finding and keeping the right person for you. Through her education and experience in business, she has made the remarkable discovery that dating is really a simple series of techniques that anyone can learn and succeed with.

At thirty years old, Jess was on top of the world. After graduating college, she had started her own sales company, where she single-handedly recruited, trained and managed a thirty-person sales team. She was chosen as one of America’s top entrepreneurs by Sir Richard Branson and traveled the world on his Fox reality show, The Rebel Billionaire. Having discovered first-hand that the art of sales directly translated into her dating life, Jess began counseling women, teaching them logical and proven sales techniques that they could use on their own dates. She continues to teach the fundamentals of sales and dating to women across the country. Visit Jess at www.jessmccann.com.

About You Lost Him At Hello: A Saleswoman’s Secrets to Closing the Deal with Any Guy You Want

Sales tricks that will make men desperate to date you

Whether you’ve found yourself waiting for him to call or given up everything for a relationship that went nowhere, getting a guy to commit can be like getting him to walk over a bed of hot coals.

Jess McCann has been there. She used to make the same mistakes we’ve all made with men–until she realized that the winning formula to attracting the right guy lay in skills she already had. As a successful saleswoman, Jess has practiced over and over the techniques in promoting a product, finding the right approach, making the pitch, and closing deal after deal. Once she started to apply these same techniques to the dating scene, her love life made a complete one-eighty, and she found herself with more interested men than she knew what to do with.

Now you can learn these same methods that that will help you to:

• Know and love your product before you sell it (that’s you!)
• Prospect for new ‘clients’–where to find them and how to catch their eye.
• Read his ‘buying signs’ and gauge his interest.
• Use the KISS principle (Keep It Short and Simple) and keep him engaged in conversation.
• End your date at the Height of Impulse so he always makes plans to see you again.
And so much more!

Jess McCann’s tactics work because they make you strong, confident, and irresistible to every man you meet. Whether you’re looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now, You Lost Him at Hello will help you find him and keep him–while having more fun and fulfilled relationships than ever before.
