Sucker Moms is a light-hearted look at the challenges of raising children in a market-driven world. By being a sucker for Madison Avenue marketing campaigns and purchasing every product designed to give our children a competitive advantage, we may be causing more harm than good. The toys, tools and technology that worked for us as children can still work the "me" generation.Greer McVay reflects on her journey from "Sucker Mom" to being a mother who recognizes her son's strengths (and weaknesses) and nurtured him appropriately...on a realistic, single mom's budget.

During the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, seven-year-old Thomas Moran finds himself accidentally embarking on a career in pickpocketing. In the following years he becomes a master of his dubious craft and grows to manhood traveling from state to state across America. His picaresque journey takes him through Prohibition and the Depression; into the desperate highs of the Hootchy-Kootchy and the dying vineyards of California, accompanied by an array of richly drawn characters frantically clutching at the crumbling American dream. Italian and Chinese gangsters, con artists, corrupt clergy, and speakeasy bootleggers all have a part to play in Tommy's destiny, but it is Effie, the great love of his life, who offers him the chance to change his future, and tries to save him from himself. Colorfully written, engaging, and richly evocative of an extraordinary period in American history, The Sucker's Kiss marks the literary debut of master storyteller Alan Parker.

Set in the Rose City of Portland, Oregon, the All-4-Love series evolves around Alley's wacky relationship toggles and family issues. Sure, typical family problems can be repeated snores when it comes to reading, but I've taken it to wild and crazy heights and it should keep all readers glued to the end. Distant Lover is about protagonist Alley's yearning for someone that seems hard to reel in. He yearns for Lavida Jones, but she is entangled in parenting, job, and ex-fiancé problems. The story opens with Alley being the ultimate, unemployed, and complete loser. Not only is Alley suddenly blessed with finding job security, he meets his distant lover on a bus. Together, Alley and Lavida survive all the wacky challenges: A stalking bum that eventually cleans up his alcoholic behaviors, returns to the bottle, and ends up dead by the end of Distant Lover. The gangster son of Lavida, who threatened to shoot Alley if marriage came up, ends up shot and finds that Jesus is his best friend. The ex-fiancé and part time Jamaican pimp, Robert, ends up the most hated villain you'll ever read about.

"Everything that he has done was against this country." Joe Frazier on Muhammad Ali Part man, part myth, and all American, Muhammad Ali is history's most beloved, most revered athlete. But though he was "The Greatest" inside the ring, outside he was a hulking mass of contradictions. This book is the first comprehensive, pull-no-punches account of America's least likely icon. Jack Cashill explores the changing mores and racial dynamics of the sixties alongside Ali's epic battles in the ring. "What Ali did, great or otherwise, was to channel the spirit of his age. . . . He captured the ethos of that decade all too well. It wasn't pretty. I was there, and I know what I saw." Cashill reveals how Elijah Muhammad seduced Ali--and how that seduction spelled the betrayal of Dr. King's dream, the death of Malcolm X, the humiliation of Joe Frazier, the rise of Don King, and the tragic undoing of Mike Tyson--and proves that: Ali was an unapologetic sexist and unabashed racist, calling for the lynching of interracial couples and an American apartheid as late as 1975. Ali routinely denigrated black heroes who did not share his point of view, including Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, and especially Joe Frazier. Ali shamelessly courted some of the most brutal dictators on the planet: Qadaffi, Idi Amin, Papa Doc Duvalier, Nkrumah, Mobutu, and Ferdinand Marcos. With unusual sympathy and unflinching insight, Cashill assesses Ali's boxing conquests and political influence. He shows how the very figure who could have brought America's diverse people together when it mattered, instead tore them apart. Jack Cashill has written and directed The Holocaust through Our Own Eyes, The Soul of the West and the Emmy-Award winning The Royal Years among other documentaries for regional PBS and national cable channels. Cashill has a Ph.D. in American studies from Purdue and has been published in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Fortune, Weekly Standard, WorldNetDaily, and Ingram's, where he serves as executive editor. He is also the author of First Strike, Ron Brown's Body, and Hoodwinked: How Intellectual Hucksters Have Hijacked American Culture.
