Callen Michaels and Andrew Manne first meet at a wedding in 1990 and fall madly in love. She is a freelance writer and artist. He is a stylist for a high-end fashion magazine in Vancouver, British Columbia. Seven years later, on March 30, 1997, Andrew commits suicide. Two days later, Callen is brutally raped. This is their tragic love story. But even after these two life-changing events, Callen is able to start over. This compelling novel is loosely based on author Sandra Leigh Savage's life. Her husband's suicide prompted her to write the Together Forever series in the hopes it would help others who have experienced the devastation of suicide. After coming out of the darkness following her late husband's death, Sandra Leigh was inspired to write a love story between two people who come together, but are ripped apart when Callen finds Andrew dead from suicide. "It is in this story that I dedicate this book to my late husband, Andrew Michael Savage, who committed suicide on March 30, 1997." About the Author Sandra Leigh Savage says, "People don't like to talk about suicide, but this subject needs to be heard again from another perspective. Mine. I am a survivor of suicide. I believe that my life was spared and I was needed here to share this story of heartbreak and deep sadness. I want to put a name to suicide; my husband's, Andrew Michael Savage. It took many years of recovery for me to wake up again and to start a new life." She wants to show others how to move on and begs readers: "Hear my message, hear Andrew's message. Please, choose life over suicide." She lives in Burnaby, British Columbia. Headshot photographer: Kasha Raelaina Savage Publisher's website: http: //

Bright Boulevards Bold Dreams

In Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, Donald Bogle tells–for the first time–the story of a place both mythic and real: Black Hollywood. Spanning sixty years, this deliciously entertaining history uncovers the audacious manner in which many blacks made a place for themselves in an industry that originally had no place for them. Through interviews and the personal recollections of Hollywood luminaries, Bogle pieces together a remarkable history that remains largely obscure to this day. We discover that Black Hollywood was a place distinct from the studio-system-dominated Tinseltown–a world unto itself, with unique rules and social hierarchy. It had its own talent scouts and media, its own watering holes, elegant hotels, and fashionable nightspots, and of course its own glamorous and brilliant personalities. Along with famous actors including Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Hattie McDaniel (whose home was among Hollywood’s most exquisite), and, later, the stunningly beautiful Lena Horne and the fabulously gifted Sammy Davis, Jr., we meet the likes of heartthrob James Edwards, whose promising career was derailed by whispers of an affair with Lana Turner, and the mysterious Madame Sul-Te-Wan, who shared a close lifelong friendship with pioneering director D. W. Griffith. But Bogle also looks at other members of the black community–from the white stars’ black servants, who had their own money and prestige, to gossip columnists, hairstylists, and architects–and at the world that grew up around them along Central Avenue, the Harlem of the West. In the tradition of Hortense Powdermaker’s classic Hollywood: The Dream Factory and Neal Gabler’s An Empire of Their Own, in Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, Donald Bogle re-creates a vanished world that left an indelible mark on Hollywood–and on all of America.

365 days, 7 fights, 4 Kos, 3 decisions, 2 scandals, 1 missing ear, 1 wild yearChris Jones did not know what he was getting himself into. He looked for a sport to call his own when he was hired as a rookie reporter. He found boxing. Over the course of the year that followed, the dark trade would creep deeply inside him, set his heart pumping one minute and break it the next. Make him stare at violence and dare him not to flinch. In Falling Hard, Jones proves himself to the latest in a line of lyricists to be drawn into boxing's storied corruption plagued world. He gets dressed down by Don King, meets the troubled guy who found Evander Holyfield's ear, goes to Muhammed Ali's birthday party, and witnesses Naseem Hamed explode while Mike Tyson implodes. Falling Hard is in equal measure victory and defeat - an intoxicating mix that leaves Jones addicted to boxing's special brand of pain. Humorous, infuriating and suspenseful, this is boxing distilled to its essence by sports writing's brightest star.

Destined to become the bible for a bold new subculture of eco-minded people who are creating a lifestyle out of recycling, reusing, and repurposing rather than buying new. An exciting new movement is afoot that brings together environmentalists, anticonsumerists, do-it-yourselfers, bargain-hunters, and treasure-seekers of all stripes. You can see it in the enormous popularity of many websites: millions of Americans are breaking free from the want-get-discard cycle by which we are currently producing approximately 245 million tons of waste every day (that's 4.5 pounds per person, per day!). In The Scavengers' Manifesto, Anneli Rufus and Kristan Lawson invite readers to discover one of the most gratifying (and inexpensive) ways there is to go green. Whether it's refurbishing a discarded wooden door into a dining-room table; finding a bicycle on; or giving a neighbor who just had a baby that cute never-used teddy bear your child didn't bond with, in this book Rufus and Lawson chart the history of scavenging and the world-changing environmental and spiritual implications of "Scavenomics," and offer readers a framework for adopting scavenging as a philosophy and a way of life.

In these delightful meditations, biologist and bird lover Richard Cannings weaves stories of his personal encounters with birds into fascinating descriptions of their behavior, anatomy, and evolution. He muses over the meadowlarks’ ability to hide their nests so completely that he has seen only two in a lifetime spent searching for them; the trumpeter swan, as picky as a two-year old, devouring potatoes and carrots but turning up its beak at Brussels sprouts; the northern gannet, with its snowy plumage, black wingtips, and startling blue eyes; the little saw-whet owl, which dabbles in bigamy and even trigamy; and more than two dozen other birds. Covering the entire continent, from the cacophony of a seabird colony on the shores of the Atlantic to a symphony of snow geese on the autumn plains to songbird courtship in the alpine tundra of the Rockies, An Enchantment of Birds informs and entertains, in one fell swoop.

Black and white quilts have become a hot new trend for quilters of all ages. A seemingly simple pattern can be dramatically updated merely by adding a little black and white fabric into the design. The book includes projects that are completely black and white and also includes designs that have splashes of colour, or just splashes of black and white. Quilters will love the variety of designs, from an adorable cat wall hanging to a bold bed quilt made up of black, white and bright yellow fabrics. Techniques used include applique, patchwork and foundation piecing. Each design is shown in a lifestyle photograph, has an assembly diagram and is accompanied by a complete materials list and step-by-step instructions.
