Ghost Field

This book is amazingly great.

The author, William Rand literally scared the crap out of me with his beautifully written yet terrifying storylines. The setting just takes you deeper and deeper. The eerie descriptions, the fast past action, and the throat clenching need to escape made this story a page turner. I can't count the number of times I found myself holding my breath because of the building suspense, horror and macabre

On One hand I wish it was a little longer, but at the same time the pace was perfect, and sometimes a short story is just long enough.

Perfectly Awesome Horror book!

Scott is a future geologist with a love of animals. When he follows a friendly little dog through the ghost field, the dog runs into a concealed cave entrance. Scott’s concern for the animal and the cries of a little girl lost draw him. His curiosity is piqued. Repressing his fear of tight spaces, he decides to go into the cave, but only for a few feet, then another few feet, until he discovers that the friendly little dog is not what it seems. Trapped, with no way out, Scott finds only the horror of his life. Can he escape with his sanity?

Nobody Bats a Thousand

It's good to actually find a book of short stories, but it's great to find a book of GREAT short stories!!!!! The characters are as unique and diverse as the stories. This is a perfect book for your kindle and what a bargain!!!

Revised for Kindle, Nobody Bats a Thousand is a book of stories based on reality. The opening story, “A Bar Story”, showing a typical Friday night seen through the eyes of a middle-aged bartender, deals with conflicts that arise from changing times and generations. In “Home on the Range” a college student becomes reacquainted with his uncle, a famous touring musician, who teaches his nephew to look at life from a novel perspective. “Victims of Circumstance” centers on a young slacker and the 24 hours surrounding his 21st birthday in which he stumbles upon epiphanies about life, sex and his Vietnam veteran father. This book of literary fiction contains eight finely crafted stories about ordinary people involved in unique situations, presented in a style reminiscent of Raymond Carver, Richard Ford and David Sedaris.

On the Beach by Steve Schmale

I got completely involved with this story; I just couldn't figure out where it was going and couldn't put it down. It was well written and a good story.

Twenty-something Lenny Decker is a man of few plans, and he seems to like it that way. Bumming around a sleepy California beach town, Lenny appears to live a life of Zen-like slacker simplicity. His days and nights are a seemingly endless loop of visits to the local bar and pick-up basketball games, punctuated by long stretches in his apartment with only a twelve pack, a bong, and a TV of questionable quality for company.

But Lenny has a thing or two to deal with: a near brush with success in his past has left him running for the comfort of a life where the stakes aren't just low, they're non-existent. Then there's the woman who sees past Lenny's stoned exterior and is challenging him in ways he hasn't been tested in years.

10 Stacks to Success

In ‘10 Stacks To Success: How to Achieve Success One Goal at a Time’, Jay Isip is blunt, harsh and raw in his pursuit to expose the cold hard truth about why millions fall short of their dreams. While this former champion martial artist now wins every fight he faces in the world of business, previous failures drove Isip to the very bottom of life’s pits. Now back at the top of his game and with a very real understanding of the importance of pursuing success one goal at a time, Isip is unleashing the blueprint that has afforded many financial freedom and the life they deserve. While many success ‘gurus’ attempt to empower their audiences subtly, Jay Isip sees millions of people will dormant dreams as proof that it’s not working. Isip himself has an amazing wealth of inspiration to share, and he does so with a brash honesty that bucks trends with gusto. 
Isip’s life has come full circle – from his days as a martial artist winning against some of modern history’s best fighters through to debt, depression, the contemplation of suicide and his miraculous crawl back to the top as a multi-talented business leader. Isip knows that millions of others deserve a better life of financial/lifestyle freedom and, in his new book, he shares the wisdom necessary to release anyone’s hidden hero.

Synopsis of ‘10 Stacks To Success: How to Achieve Success One Goal at a Time’:
Throughout his life, Jerome Isip has learned one thing: success isn’t merely a goal, but a lifestyle. Thus, he has discovered that the only way to make dreams become a reality is to actually strive for them. This book is not designed to be considerate of one’s feelings. Nor does it sugarcoat life’s troubles. Instead, it simply states what most people don’t have the marbles to: The cold hard truth. 
His delivery may be blunt. At times, even harsh. Or, humorously injected with a healthy dose of New Jersey slang. However, Jerome Isip’s straightforward approach has inspired, motivated, and changed the lives of many – including himself. If you have been “stuck in neutral” and searching for a new way, a new voice to help you unlock the lofty dreams that have been trapped inside for all too long, this book will provide the stepping stones you need to begin the journey once again. 
The lessons in this guide include: Learning how to properly set goals and knock them down one by one, Converting those ever-longing dreams into reality, Overcoming fears that hold you back from moving forward in life, Understanding the true meaning and purpose of your life and Developing a positive and productive mindset 

It’s time to live your life the way you have always wanted to. With this simple step-by-step guide, you will find the inspiration you need to embark on an adventure you never believed possible.
“There’s no way to sugarcoat it; most people get distracted from their dreams and instead settle for second place,” explains Isip. “The so-called American Dream is a perfect example of this – people are told to break through molds and achieve the unconventional, but only if they can maintain the status-quo while doing so. It’s a cruel constraint but, by finding the inner hero that has been there all along, you can unlock and embrace the lifestyle you deserve.”

Continuing, “You have a right to your dreams and a right to be successful, but there is correct way to achieve it. That’s the culture of my book; to show you the shifts in character and lifestyle that will allow you to easily achieve goals in turn and eventually shower in the success you crave. The light you need is already staring you in the face, and I’ll show you how to keep it switched on for the rest of your life.”

Since its release, the book has garnered a string of rave reviews. Grady Harp comments, “Jerome - or rather Jay - Isip is one extraordinary being. He lives is a completely buff, fully tattooed well kept body and combines the roles of entrepreneur, Pro Mixed Martial Arts fighter, author, Investor, life enthusiast etc all because he chose to create his own dreams. He challenges us in a very positive but stern manner, inserts enough bawdy humor to keeps us turning the pages, and in the end makes us realize that Jay Isip really cares that we become what our potential suggests.”

Casey Demchak adds, “Finally. A "Self-help" book that cuts through the fluff and tells it like it is. It's blunt and rough around the edges, but it tells you what you need to hear without pulling any punches. If you're a guy who has stayed away from inspirational books because they're too flowery--this is the book for you.”

The Truth which was Kept from Us: Mysteries of the Past

Klaus Berger’s ‘The Truth which was Kept from Us’ is—to say the least—so intriguing you’ll drop everything you’re doing and read through it. You’ll be simply astounded upon learning about the extent of what you DON’T know—and that’s only for starters.

Indeed, ‘The Truth which was Kept from Us’ contains information that can be so shocking to many people—myself included. I mean, imagine if the majority of Jesus Christ’s teachings—which didn’t reach the great masses of people through generations—were actually made public right at the get-go, we could have spared ourselves a lot of bloodshed throughout history. On a personal note, I find the divine wisdom that author Klaus Berger so comprehensively discusses in this book so evocatively life-changing—finally, here’s something that will wash over your soul like warm rain. And when I say “comprehensively,” I’m not kidding—Berger leaves no stone unturned when he reveals not only Jesus’ hidden teachings, but also what we can do about these teachings in order to transform our very lives.

Let me suffice it to say that this is an incredibly powerful book—something you don’t read lightly, yet it’s something that you or everyone MUST read. Get a copy of this book today, especially if you’re like me who have been wondering about what we could all have been missing from the big picture. Highly recommended—also makes a great gift to like-minded friends. Five stars for this one.
