The Snark Handbook is back and it’s more uproarious than ever. This revised and expanded edition contains even more snide remarks, witty comebacks, and biting commentary than the bestselling first edition. With dozens of hilarious jokes, plus lists such as “Snarky Movie Descriptions,” “Money Can’t Buy You Happiness, But it Can Buy…”, and “Excuses to Get Out of a Date,” it’s easy to find the perfect bit of irreverence to fit every mood and occasion. The Snark Handbook also features hundreds of the best quotes from beloved heroes of snark: “If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.”-Dorothy Parker “I never forget a face, but in your case, I’m happy to make an exception”-Groucho Marx “There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best part.”-Charles Dickens “I’m at an age where my back goes out more than I do.”-Phyllis Diller With charming black and white illustrations to accompany the wry remarks on every page, The Snark Handbook is as fun to look at as it is to read. It’s a must-have whether you want to brush up on your snark, need a good laugh after a bad day, or are looking for the perfect gift for your favorite smartass.

In the follow-up to Cronus, an American spy travels to London to locate a high-profile missing person, and is faced with terror from the past If they’re going to take you, let them take you with your eyes open. That’s the credo of Clifford Driscoll, the American spy at the center of Snark, the follow-up to William DeAndrea’s Edgar Award–winning Cronus. Driscoll has gone by many names in his short, eventful life, and he’s just borrowed another: that of Jeffrey Bellman, an agent his Russian enemies at Cronus consider dead. As the son of a formidable secret intelligence director, Driscoll/Bellman is used to all kinds of existential ducking and weaving. The new Bellman is sent to England to find Sir Lewis Alfot, a missing former British intelligence chief. He hasn’t even left the London airport, though, before assassins target him. They come courtesy of Leo Calvin, a terrorist Bellman’s dealt with in the past—and Calvin has just kidnapped Alfot as bait. Can Bellman stop Calvin in his tracks, and is Alfot, for his part, as respectable and law-abiding as he seems?

Do we dare go after the holiest of institutions, that bastion of reverence known as Motherhood and Fatherhood? Do we take a chance ticking off the entire world? After all, we're either a mother or a father or a son or a daughter. . . . Are we, indeed, on “Shaky ground?” Have we finally gotten to the one thing that we shouldn’t poke fun at? Is the sanctity of our home life the one untouchable? Nah Throughout the ages, the one constant in literature, music, film, politics, and life has been the love/hate relationship we have with our parents or kids. Whether we’ve sucked up to them to get what we want or we’ve ignored and alienated them; family is the cornerstone for the majority of headaches that we deal with on a daily basis. We love them, we hate them, we resent them, we loathe them . . . but unfortunately, no matter what, they still show up on Thanksgiving and eat the big turkey leg. With that said, what’s a better gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparents Day—hell any day—where you can tell your “loved ones” exactly how you feel. But one word of caution. . . . Be careful. They know all your deep, dark secrets.

How did a big-game fishing trip rudely interrupted by sharks inspire one of the key scenes in Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea? How did Robert Louis Stevenson's cruise to the cannibal-infested South Sea islands prove instrumental in his writing of The Beach of Falesa and The Ebb Tide? How did Masefield survive Cape Horn and a near-nervous breakdown to write Sea Fever? The waters of this world have swirled through storytelling ever since the Celts spun the tale of Beowulf and Homer narrated The Odyssey. This enthralling book takes us on a tour of the most dangerous, exciting and often eccentric escapades of literature's sailing stars, and how these true stories inspired and informed their best-loved works. Arthur Ransome, Erskine Childers, Jack London and many others are featured as we find out how extraordinary fact fed into unforgettable fiction.

Now I'm the captain of a cursed ship where if we let our guard down, some smug evil spirit invades our minds and tries to trap us in a horrific netherworld. And let's not forget that there's a bounty on me so huge, even I'm tempted to cash myself in. Why does someone want to pay that much money for me? I wish I knew. Right now there's three hot men in my cabin and I can't have sex with any of them: There's my ex, Captain Dauntless, ridiculously handsome with an ego to match the size of his...ship. There's the mysterious Sebastian, one of the hottest peddlers of pleasure in the caribbean, who wants to give me a good time but is definitely hiding something. And there's the Commodore Benedict St Stephens, my nemesis, my prisoner, who has a hard-on for killing me instead of a regular hard-on but I'm sure I could talk him 'round. What can I say, there's a lot of love-hate happening in this room, as well as a lot of hate-hate. I just want gold, drink and sex. Instead, I've got to deal with this curse and this bounty, before they get me killed. ****** Pirate Queen's Curse is the first in a series of slow-burn, high snark RH, featuring the kick-ass snark-filled Captain Magpie Flint, the crew of the Queen's Liberty, and four hot men, because why choose?There is a HEA at the end of the series.

How to Break an Evil Curse is the first book in a high fantasy series about a princess who may be cursed to live in darkness, but refuses to let her curse define her life. The King of the Land of Fritillary has incurred the wrath of his ex-bestie, the evil wizard Farland Phelps. Farland curses the King's firstborn to die if touched by sunlight, and just like that, Julianna must spend her life in the depths of a castle dungeon (emptied of prisoners and redecorated in the latest fashion, of course). A young woman of infinite resourcefulness, all she needs is a serving spoon, a loose rock in the wall, and eight years of digging, and Julianna is free to explore the city--just not while the sun is out! Warren Kensington is a member of a seafaring traveling theater troupe and the unwitting magical cure to the curse. When the pirate ship he's sailing on is damaged in stormy seas, he goes ashore and bumps into Julianna on the streets of the capitol. The pair accidentally set in motion a chain of events that uncovers Farland's plans to take over the throne. Julianna, Warren, and some friends they meet along the way are the only ones who can save the monarchy. But the farther they go along their increasingly ludicrous journey, and the more citizens they meet, the more Julianna wonders whether her dad's throne is worth saving. From an evil and greedy wizard? Well, sure. But from the people of Fritillary who are trying to spark a revolution? The people suffering in poverty, malnutrition, and other forms of medieval-esque peasant hardship? It doesn't take Julianna long to find that the real world is far more complicated than a black-and-white fairytale.

"Must read YA paranormal romance!" - USA Today Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty. Should being the key word. Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that? “Exciting and well-conceived” – Kirkus All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that--if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye. But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives... as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.

Norse & Viking Mythology, Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Love between wolf shifters and hunters is forbidden for good reasons, but Valkyrie Victoria Storm never imagined her star-crossed affair would ignite a war. With the thirty-year alliance between their peoples shattered and hundreds dead, blame falls squarely on her. Forced to atone for her mistakes, she leads her ragtag pack of werewolves to what should be safe haven. Homeless, hungry, and hunted, it’s their last hope. The Hunter King ruins Victoria’s plans when he arrives in town. She and her pack should run, but the goddess Freya has other ideas. Children are missing. Victoria is tasked with joining the Hunter—her enemy—to stage a rescue. Working together will either heal the rift between wolf shifters and Hunters or force them to tread separate paths forever. PRAISE FOR THE LOKI'S WOLVES / RAGNAROK: DOOM OF THE GODS SERIES: This book is a great time! It combines all the best elements of the paranormal with aspine-chilling mystery. Although short, it is a well-told story full of twists and turns. The author has a light easy-going touch with a descriptive style that draws the reader into the action. Although a little light on the shape-shifting aspect of the characters, the story explores other aspects of the supernatural, drawing inspiration from Viking mythology. This use of mythology in a modern way opens up a plethora of new ideas for the genre. "Valkyrie's Vengeance" is a niceeasy read, perfect for unwinding after work or on a Sunday afternoon. ~InD'Tale Magazine RONE Awards 2016 Finalist Fans of the following books and series are known to enjoy this Norse & Viking mythology, paranormal & urban fantasy series: neil gaiman debra dunbar jim butcher bella forrest ilona andrews charlaine harris christine pope ann gimpel cj brightley mark e cooper patricia briggs shannon mayer helen harper eva pohler ron neito st bende nancy straight kf breene lara adrian victoria danann joanne m. harris edith hamilton padraic colum a s byatt mable h cummings rick riordan roger green poul anderson Keywords related to this Norse & Viking mythology, paranormal & urban fantasy series: Loki, Fantasy Books, Epic Sagas, Werewolves and Shifters, Animals & Nature, Popular Series, Paranormal Fantasy Books, Top Rated Books, Tricks, Fantasy Omnibus, Spells & Charms, Romance Books, Loki Books, Wizards, Fantasy Romance Books, Essential Reads, Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales, Epic Fantasy, Vampires, Omnibus Bundle, Paranormal Romance Series, Adventure Books, Mythology and Folklore, Top Rated Fantasy Collection With Vikings And Shapeshifters, Fantasy Bundle, Heroine, Dryads, Supernatural and Occult, Sword And Sorcery, Shifter Romance, Modern Paranormal Romance Series, Fantasy Stories, Shifter Series, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy Books, Shifter Omnibus, Best Rated Omnibus, Omnibus Collection, Paranormal Romance Books, Magical Adventures, Alpha, Warriors, Shadow, Asgard Stories, Demon, Chaos, Fairy Tales, Thor, Odin, Freya, Frigg, Angel, Wolves.
