Chasing The Dragon: Are You Chem-Friendly? (The Chemsex Trilogy Book 1)

by Cameron Yorke

2015 was the year of the chem-sex revolution amongst the gay scene in London. It seemed the entire population wanted to get ‘High & Horny’, and ‘PnP’ was the priority for weekend entertainment, with young and old alike, afterall, it was ‘just sex’, and relationships were a thing of the past - One either denied their existence entirely, or swore that an open arrangement was the norm. Chasing the Dragon is a portayal of this phenomenon, and explores the use of recreational drugs and the social impact on those who indulged, as well as the wider community, with valuable insight into the machinations of the chem-sex culture, and the wider recreational drug scene of London, and Britain in the 21st century, and proof that the ‘War on Drugs’ has failed....

Killing Buddha - An Account of Surviving Abuse and Therapy

by Dagmar M.

Mother was a paranoid schizophrenic and an abusive parent who told me she wished I’d never been born. She killed herself when I was 15, leaving a message that she still rejected me. My father sent me to several psychiatrists after that but I could trust nobody -- except Dr. Ian Kent. He wasn’t smooth like the others. He didn’t try to finesse me. For years I trusted his guidance but I went to the brink of despair while in his care. Finally I left. Doctors, lawyers, professors and business executives followed him like a guru; I believed the failure was mine. Not until I read his book did I realize that maybe I wasn’t the crazy one. Killing Buddha is about therapy bleeding into cultism, crossing the line unnoticed. It’s about devastation and survival....

Killer Heiress

by Nathan Nixon

If recent history has told us anything, it is that relationships between parents and children are just plain different. Today, the level of respect for one’s parents is at a much lower point than say, 100 years ago. With that being said, crimes have escalated over the past 50 years to include the completely heinous. Crimes against parents committed by their children have been on the rise. As unthinkable of a concept as this is to most of us, Suzane von Richthofen didn’t feel the same. Not only did Suzane commit the murder of her parents, she teamed up with her boyfriend to completely send this crime over the edge. This murder is one of the few over the past 20 years to garner such full international attention. The decision to murder a one’s family is one that is unimaginable. ...

The Life and Prayers of Saint Francis of Assisi

by St. Francis of Assisi and Wyatt North

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Francis of Assisi is an essential book for any Christian. Saint Francis of Assisi is quite possibly the most popular of all Christian saints. Perhaps it is his adoration for all living things or his unrelenting generosity that has made so many people open their hearts to him. Perhaps it is the deep conviction and piety expressed not only by the saint himself, but in his name, in the Franciscan orders throughout the centuries.Whatever the reason, in a world that is quickly developing in a direction diametrically opposite to the saint's own simple asceticism, Saint Francis of Assisi still stirs strong emotions and compassion. How close he found God, in the very nature around him, is inspiring.All books in The Life and Pr...

The Story of Prophet Adam In Islam

by Muhammad Vandestra

Prophet Adam is believed to have been the first human being and (Prophet) on Earth, in Islam. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also refer to his wife, Hawa (Eve), as the "mother of mankind". Muslims see Prophet Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an states that all the Prophets preached the same faith of Islam (Submission to One God).The Qur'an and hadith give the same account of the creation of Adam and Eve. Synthesizing the Qur'an with Sunni hadith can produce the following account. According to the Qur'an, when Allah (God) informed the angels that he was going to put a successor on Earth, they questioned whether the human would cause blood shed and damage, but he told them that he knew what they did not. He created Adam from ...

90275

by Alexa Keating

The Ohio Reformatory for Women was under siege. The state highway patrol had taken control of the facility. Every cottage was now manned by a state trooper. The entire campus remained under lockdown.
She asked the trooper in charge of her dorm if she could make a call. “I don’t see a line here; go ahead.”
She called her attorney and told him what had happened. He was not surprised that the guards had set them up, but he was shocked that she had access to that number and had created all of this chaos. He had not known such a number even existed. He smiled to himself; this is a big damn deal, he thought. He felt this latest sequence of events had only endangered her more; he called the media and gave them a heads up. In this kind of situation, the more public attention that...

George Washington: A Life From Beginning to End (Biographies of US Presidents Book 1)

by Hourly History

George Washington
George Washington, the first president of the United States, is much more than a monument on Mount Rushmore. Who was Washington, the general, president, and husband? He was first and foremost a man of impeccable honor which, despite military adversity and political wrangling, never abandoned him. The Founding Fathers who squabbled and competed amongst themselves did agree on one thing: only Washington could lead the country, first in the country’s military fight for freedom and then as the man charged with transforming thirteen individual states into a united country. But in his youth, George Washington did not intend to become the Father of his Country. As a younger son of a middling class Virginian, he intended to earn his living as a surveyor, and in that role,...

You Never Know Who's Crazy

by Steven Finkelstein

This memoir is a brutally honest, take-no-prisoners, nonfiction account of the author's experiences while working in the security industry in New York City, for parts of the years 2009 and 2010. Dividing time between his personal and professional life, it covers several major events and misadventures, including the move to New York from South Carolina, his "business casual" wedding, a death in the family, and memorable encounters with many unsavory denizens of the Rotten Apple. Written in first-person, in Steven's inimitable style, along with running commentary that reveals much about his values and world views, this is a rare glimpse into the mind of a blue-collar author whose writing harkens back to Charles Bukowski. Thinking of moving to New York? Consider this to be required reading......
