On a year in the near future, at 7:15 p.m. on the 21st of October, the entire American government is wiped out by nuclear warheads. No one was sure who did it. As the first wave of attacks came, surviving Americans soon knew that both the Russians and Chinese,through a systematic infiltration of North America and a complete program of invasion, are the enemies. The survivors have to collect their wits, put up a defense, and harness all sorts of technological and material resources in order for America to survive and continue in The New Beginning, a vision of an America after a successful enemy nuclear attack. Fully a hundred million Americans did not survive the fi rst wave of attacks. Alexander James, then a civilian, is enlisted into the army. The United States, what is left of it, turns into a highly militarized and technologically conscious political entity to combat the oncoming hordes of Chinese and Russians. Fighting rages across the American continent, and Americans themselves are forced to think up all sorts of guerilla operations to momentarily stop the enemy juggernaut, regroup, and perhaps (in a vain hope)to defeat it. Years of fighting changes the remaining landscape of America. Buildings are built like fortresses, high technology forms a defensive border even over American skies, children study war in kindergarten, and society lives and dies by the strength of its war slogans and the will to take the fight to the enemy. Alexander James is absent from family life for years on end. He makes it to Colonel in the armed forces and is a pivotal personality in a desperate operation to stop the war totally by infi ltrating the Russian high command. He becomes a hero but refuses to be drawn in to the next presidential election, being disillusioned by what American society had become because of the war. This novel is the start of a riveting new saga of a future America fighting for its very survival.

This book describes the profound insights on life itself that this traumatic yet positive life changing experience had on Grandpa John; a realization that we are mere mortals living a life of immortality; and a realization that life needs a reckoning of those important things that we know but that we don’t really understand because we have never personalized them. Each profound and insightful chapter is dedicated to a specific life topic. As Goethe put it “All truly wise thoughts have been thought already thousands of times, but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, until they take root in our personal experience.”

A teenage girl follows a mysterious boy to an island with a dark secret Since she was born, Rachel’s whole life has been planned out for her, from prep school to the Ivy League to a job as a doctor or lawyer. Only her grandfather understands that, at thirteen, she would rather just be a kid. Rachel is suffering through a boring yacht party when she catches the eye of a busboy who, like her, doesn’t seem to belong. He convinces her to do something impulsive: She jumps off the boat to take a dip in the ocean. It’s the biggest mistake she’ll ever make. Rachel nearly drowns, and wakes up on the beach of a mysterious island called Onieron. It’s almost like a theatrical summer camp, with boys and girls in costumes, having fun. Though it’s nice at first, soon Rachel just wants to go home. But leaving the island is something the Onieronians will never allow. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Lerangis including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

In what was the most devastating event of their lives, Tom and Pat Monahan lost their nine-year-old grandson, Tommy, in a house fire in December of 2007. This unimaginable tragedy rocked their lives with pain and sorrow beyond description, of a kind and strength they had never dreamed of. As a way of dealing with this unspeakable grief, Pat Monahan practiced what she preached as a professional bereavement counselor: she began journaling her feelings to work through the pain. Following the depression that comes with grief, she realized that this process was a major key to lifting her depression. In hopes of helping others whose faith has been shattered following the loss of a loved one, Pat presents her recorded thoughts and struggles in To Thee We Do Cry. She describes the impact her grandson Tommy’s life and death had on the entire community of Staten Island; she also emphasizes the importance of coping with the struggle with spirituality while faced with such trauma. In the end, it is faith that will guide someone suffering from a loss back to living a full life once more.

In modern America, two soldiers will fight their way through the magical legacies of Poe and Hawthorne to destroy an undying evil—if they don't kill each other first. US Army Captain Dale Morton is a magician soldier—a "craftsman." After a black-ops mission gone wrong, Dale is cursed by a Persian sorcerer and haunted by his good and evil ancestors. Major Michael Endicott, a Puritan craftsman, finds gruesome evidence that the evil Mortons, formerly led by the twins Roderick and Madeline, have returned, and that Dale might be one of them. Dale uncovers treason in the Pentagon's highest covert ranks. He hunts for his enemies before they can murder him and Scherie, a new friend who knows nothing of his magic. Endicott pursues Dale, divided between his duty to capture a rogue soldier and his desire to protect Dale from his would-be assassins. They will discover that the demonic horrors that have corrupted American magic are not bound by family or even death itself. In Tom Doyle's thrilling debut, American Craftsmen, Seal Team Six meets ancient magic--with the fate of the United States hanging in the balance . . .

Did the American people suddenly become "independent" on July 4, 1776, or is there something more to our shared history? History books tend to simplify the events leading up to the Declaration of Independence, but not Grandpa! Terrence Hagen wants his grandchildren--and everyone else--to know exactly what happened from the founding of Jamestown in 1607 to the time the Founding Fathers broke free from England. The reality is the real America was developed in that period between the founding of the first settlements to the Declaration of Independence. In this history book, you'll learn why America could be called an accident; self-government was not discovered by America; colonial America was the result of concurrent conflict among many entities; and subsequent immigration of non-English settlers changed the nature of the American colonist and produced ethnic, religious, and cultural conflicts. Laced with chapter summaries, quizzes, and stories of sacrifice, Grandpa's US Colonial History to 1800 tells the forgotten history of how the American Revolution was fought not to attain independence but to retain the level of independence early settlers enjoyed.
