It was the Roaring Twenties, the Jazz Age, the era of Model T Fords,
bootleggers and G-men. Spiritualism was all the rage. Everyone wanted to
talk to the dead. Except Dr. Alex Gabriel, who thought talking to the dead
was ridiculous. Until he met Savannah Bishop, the country’s most unique
medium. Using Savannah’s contacts with the World Beyond, Dr. Gabriel and
Miss Bishop set out to solve a series of brutal murders that range from the
glitz of Hollywood to the backwoods of Arkansas and eventually to the
bohemian Left Bank of Paris and finally to pre-Nazi Berlin.

Growing up in 1970s and 80s suburban Houston, Judy Haveson is funny,
sarcastic, and fiercely loyal, especially to her family, friends, and big
sister, Celia. When she suffers a series of unimaginable traumatic events,
her seemingly idyllic childhood comes to a halt, changing her life
forever.

In Laugh Cry Rewind, Judy takes readers on her journey of self-discovery,
sharing funny, touching, and heartbreaking stories from her childhood all
the way to the birth of her son. Her experiences serve as a reminder that
while life is not always fair, ultimately, the choice to surrender or keep
on living is ours. Her message to others who have experienced loss or
tragedy is this: stop waiting for the other shoe to drop. Let life go on,
and good things will be waiting for you on the other side of the pain.

About the Author

Judy Haveson is a proud Texan who will never lose her southern charm or
accent and uses both when the situation absolutely calls for it. Her
one-time dream of becoming a journalist was shattered when a professor
suggested she pick a new major due to her penchant for obsessive
conversation. He claimed she’d be an editor’s nightmare because
she wrote as she spoke and never stopped talking. This led her to a career
in public relations. Judy’s fixation with reading books and stories
about other people’s lives inspired her to write her debut memoir. She
currently lives in The Hamptons with her husband, Adam, son, Jack, and
beloved Yorkie, Toby.

Excerpt

 

 

Chocolate, I know you sound clichéd. For years you’ve been
associated with making up for love lost, poetically punctuating rom-com
breakup scenes or presented as a prop in illicit affairs: a declarative
symbol of substitution. Forgive me, my beloved, where words might fail me;
I’ve picked up a drugstore satiny-red box of liquor-filled chocolate
for you.  Chocolate has a history through the ages, long before
Hershey’s confectionary affair gained speed at the end of the
1800s.

Anthropologists deem we’ve associated the chocolate bean with love
for more than five thousand years, which means that chocolate might be, to
speak in broad sweeps, our longest romanticized relationship.

Our chocolate devotion, however, is definitely not just fluff; it certainly
stands scientifically solid, whether in the formation of a solid dark or a
solid milk flavor. Ancient cultures prescribed raw chocolate medicinally as
a means to activate powerful heart-opening energy, and today, the latest
laboratory research reveals that the ingredients in chocolate possess
properties that support heart health.

Of course, I would never dismiss any elements considered divine in sacred
ceremonies, and I will absolutely agree that chocolate, in its purest form,
is a potent substance. But what I’m investigating here when it comes
to craving  is surely not about gorging on bags of raw, unsweetened,
hard, whole cacao beans from the Theobroma tree of the flowering Malvaceae
plant family. I’m talking about teeth-sinkable, caramel-centered,
sugar-laden, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth, candy-corporate chocolate—the
kind that is first and foremostly a globbity-glunk of vegetable fat and
high-fructose corn syrup, factory designed to dissolve within two to five
seconds of making contact with your tongue. I’m talking about the kind
of chocolate you can rake up in your top teeth, scraping the northmost side
of a covered brick of vanilla wafer, which dissolves just moments after the
chocolate-like topping evaporates into that savory-sweet pocket of the mouth
just near the back molars. What I’m describing is the type of
chocolate bar you can accidentally pack into your oversized purse, wrapped
in bright packaging, which comes conveniently in countable squares; one
square, two, five, ten—all fractional justifications of one wholly
complete serving. Finger-licking chocolate, shirt-collar, car-seat,
luggage-staining chocolate; the kind of chocolate that, just like it fills
every commercial, can fill in all the gaps in our regularly programmed
schedules.

Wake up, get to work, chocolate, meeting, chocolate, drive home, chocolate,
dinner, After Eight chocolate. And, most of all, my favorite kind of
chocolate: chocolate that makes us forget what we might have started to long
for. Nostalgic peanut-butter cups, fudge- flavored toffee, the sticky
sweetness of candies kept from my sticky fingers with just one thin wax
paper: oh, how I’ve known you. Mint- thin chocolate layers to support
my own tendency to hide out in layers, in a cool refuge away from the hot,
grilling mess of intensity that is the rest of the racket-filled world: how
you momentarily silence mayhem.

And while I, too, have romanticized you, chocolate, leaving scandalous
trails of wrappers from freezer to carpet-covered basement staircase, I have
no clue why the heck I’ve gone through such war fighting against you
while simultaneously keeping the intensity of your ammunition alive.
Twinkle, twinkle little bar (of chocolate), how I wonder what you are (or
what you stand for). Up above my fridge, so high, (to ignore that cupboard
how I’ll try—yet, next at market, again I buy).  Yes,
it’s a nursery rhyme for the girl who’s lived a life lassoed
again and again by foods that trap her in a self-deserting scene, forever
deploying dessert as distraction from despair. Oh, chocolate, what do you
mean to me?

Here’s the truth: while I’d explored a multitude of modalities
in the past to heal my affliction—my damaged relationship to my body
and self-nourishment—when it came to developing a healthier
relationship to eating, I’d actually never sought the most obvious
type of specialist: a certified and registered dietician. I wasn’t
sure exactly why I’d avoided someone who might make me stare in a
cognizant fashion right down at the nose of my fork. Why would I be turned
off by someone like a dietician, who might expect that I actually put in the
time, make the conscious effort during my living daylight hours to
positively review and shift my eating habits—to be truly self-
accountable?

When it came to dietary choices, I’d lived under a spell that
supposed I was a victim of compulsive eating, like an innocent Giana
character going about my day when I was suddenly seized by a tumultuous
weather pattern, teleported to the eye of a tornado, for example. I felt
that this storm pattern rendered me incapable of any option other than
heading, frayed and frenzied, into a food-consumptive hell that, really, I
had nothing to do with. I believed I was bullied by an energy, and I’d
share this condition with any genre of specialist except those who would
mandate that I take the role as my own healer. I chose to go through
hypnotisms, rebirths, clearings, cleansings, ceremonies, and cosmic voyages,
rather than decide I had the power to sort my patterns out. I’d prefer
to have crystals, energetic hands or tarot cards read my energy, but that
was my history—and I didn’t have to repeat it. I could believe
in myself to liberate my fortune and fate.

I’d been ready for the last months, and was even more ready now, to
look at my relationship to nourishment head-on. I wasn’t just craving
chocolate, in fact, when I reached for something that felt opulent and
alluring; I was reaching to recognize qualities about myself that possessed
such prowess.

Perhaps I was ready to seek a well-schooled yet holistically informed
nutritionist specializing in complex, disorganized or disordered eating
styles. After all, these were the experts specifically geared up to help
people gain clarity about nourishment itself. I’d seek the wisdom to
help me reach within to access inner wealth, rather than reach deeper into a
decadent box of Pepperidge Farm chocolate-chunk cookies.

I determined that, to get to the crux of how behaviors are changed around
something as substantial, universal, and essential as eating, I’d go
into hard-core research mode. I’d put on more than a thinking cap,
darn it—I’d put on a hard hat, because I had to be willing to go
deep underground to find how behavioral transformation can successfully take
place. I hoped I’d discover some epiphanies in my research, not only
for myself but for all the people I encounter who, like me, have struggled
with the behavioral ABCs of eating.

I’d read the stats: the US diet and weight-loss industry was worth 71
billion dollars, with the alternative-therapies industry coming in at around
the same and the addiction-behavior therapy industry raking in 40 billion.
Obviously, I wasn’t alone: all this rigmarole constituted a whole
culture crying out for ways to get a grip on its food behaviors. I wanted to
understand, from the leaders who’d been able to impactfully support
healing in this area, what the process of remediating self- sabotaging
behaviors might look like, and what someone who is truly ready for
transformation in this capacity can expect.

WE Blend by Willa Drew #promo #releaseday #newadult #romance #WEBlend #WillaDrew @WillaDrewAuthor @RABTBookTours @BookBuzznet

New Adult Romance

Release Date: September 27, 2022

Publisher: Moving Words Publishing

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Stage name. Secret plans. Real love.

Escaping the shadow of my famous rockstar step-father… and the
paparazzi, is how I find myself microphone-in-hand at a bar off campus
wearing a disguise and my heart on my sleeve.

I just want to sing. I need melodies like I need air to breathe. Music
isn’t just some hobby: it’s my everything. And from the moment
Wil steps on that stage next to me, I know my life won’t ever be the
same.

Our connection is instant. We want each other almost as much as we want the
money. He’s in the States on scholarship, and I’m trying to make
my 
way in the industry. We forge an alliance, not knowing the secrets we both
keep.

Even tangled in a duet of lies, we make sense . . . we blend. Together, we
could have it all. Or lose our hearts.

Excerpt

“No. He’s not my boyfriend. Who has time for that?” Why
am I telling him I’m single? Need to focus. “I hired him to play
the guitar for me.” I raise my splinted fingers and shove them in
front of Wil’s face. “See?”

“Well, that clears that.”

If I expected sympathy from this dude, I didn’t get it.

“I don’t do the girlfriend thing either. Not planning on
starting it now.” He licks his lips like I might be his next meal.
“Jeremiah might have difficulty standing up, so playing an instrument
is bloody unlikely.”

“Dammit.” I know the guy is right.

We both turn to regard the hoodie-clad Jeremiah, currently staring into his
half-empty beer glass as if the golden liquid has the answers to every
mystery in life.

“What did you say your name was?” Wil’s molten stare
focuses on my eyes then my mouth, as if he were ready to catch whatever
tumbles out next. And I wish I were here for fun. Hot, kiss-worthy
fun.

“El. El Vella.” My voice sounds raspier than normal.

His eyes flash back to mine. Something switches in them. He re-surveys me,
and his demeanor changes. The relaxed flirty vibe drops as fast as the last
note of Dad’s latest hit. He loses his smile, the fire in his eyes
gone, and for reasons I can’t understand, I miss it already.

Wil leans in like he’s going to kiss me, his fiery breath tickling my
ear instead. Is this his signature move? Is he going to ask me out? Would I
say yes? Goosebumps run down my arms, and my heart rises to my throat.

“I know who you are.”

 

About the Author

Willa Drew is not one, but two writers of fun, flirty fiction full of
feels.

Lovers of emotional scenes (don’t tell anyone: someone always cries
as we write them), dramatic scenarios (don’t blame us, the characters
insisted) and the best the world has to offer like eclairs and butter tarts
(don’t ask us to share, but we’ll point you to the
recipes).

Our young adult and new adult romances have every flavor. Angst?
Check.

Secrets? Of course. Risk taking? You bet. Expect slow burns, heart
flutters, soul mates, first loves, and swoon worthy kisses.

Chase: Bones MC by Marteeka Karland #promo #mcromance #romanticsuspense #ChaseBonesMC #MarteekaKarlad #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @marteekakarland @changelingpress

Bones MC

Motorcycle Club Romance, Suspense, Action & Adventure

Date Published: 09/30/2022

 

Cotton: When I avenged my sister’s murder, I knew the consequences. I
didn’t expect anything less than prison. I got it. In spades. I
survived ten years of hell. I was just fifteen when I was sent away but I
never regretted taking the law into my own hands. But the father of the man
I killed is now a judge, and the ten years I gave the state might not be
enough.

I thought I could disappear into the little Kentucky town and keep my head
down and keep my nose clean. What could be so hard about that? But I’m on
parole and everything is stacked against me. When the only place that will
hire me happens to be a biker bar, staying out of trouble might be too much
for me to manage. Then Chase steamrolls into my life and I know I have much
more than my freedom to lose. This man has the power to tear out my
heart.

Chase: I’ve spent the better part of my life in the shadows. Before
Bones MC, my team worked for some shady people — as assassins. I thought I
was sacrificing for the greater good. Turns out I was just one more bad guy
working for more bad guys. I can’t seem to atone for the sins of my
past. No matter what I do, those demons still haunt me.

The second I spot Cotton, everything changes. Everything about the girl
screams “battered woman,” but she’s more than that. There
is death in her eyes. She’s killed, but she’s not a killer. No
matter what, no matter who comes after her, I will protect her till my last
breath. Because she is my only salvation. She’s my woman.

“Let me go. Now.” That was another thing I’d learned in
prison. You put up or shut up. Once I’d set a boundary, I had to
follow through or this would never end. And this guy would get what he
wanted.

He squeezed my arm harder, this time standing and pulling me against him.
“You’ll get under that fuckin’ table and suck my
fuckin’ dick like the good little whore you are, or I’ll carry
you outa here and we’ll all have a fuckin’ go.”

His buddies laughed and clinked beer bottles like it was one big party.
There was no way I could keep these guys from doing whatever they wanted
unless someone came to my rescue. Which this guy had obviously planned for.
It was a dark corner fairly close to the door. All he had to do was get me
outside before anyone noticed. Assuming anyone cared. But I had the feeling
the guys from Bones might take exception to anyone outside their territory
taking an employee out of their bar. That’s the way it was in prison.
Bones may not claim me as one of their own, but they would absolutely not
allow another gang to disrupt their business or mess with their employees.
At least, that’s what I was counting on.

The second the words were out of his mouth, my hand shot between his legs
and grabbed his crotch. I squeezed his balls as hard as I could, thankful
he’d grabbed my left arm and not my right. He gave a strangled cry and
doubled over, letting go of my arm, trying to pry my fingers loose but
unable to do more than weakly tug at my wrist. I squeezed just that little
bit tighter, putting every ounce of strength I had into hanging on and
tugging with a sharp jerk. The big guy fell to his knees and I let go,
stepping back quickly. I gripped my heavy serving tray in both hands,
bringing it back like I was readying myself to hit him with it even as I
continued to back away.

I bumped into someone and a big palm landed on my shoulder. I thought I was
in big trouble, but the hand pulled me back gently, and a huge guy stepped
in front of me, putting himself between me and the three men at the
table.

“There a problem here?”

“Yeah, there’s a fuckin’ problem! Bitch threw herself at
me then tried to back out. Tried to crush my fuckin’ balls for no
fuckin’ reason!”

“In my experience, women like Cotton don’t put their hands on
men like you willingly.” Oh, my God! Could this night get any worse?
The man who’d come to my rescue was Chase Dutton. I knew he was a
member of Bones, but I tried to stay away from him as much as I could. It
was no secret his brother was a police officer and the last thing I wanted
was to have another set of eyes on me. I had no idea why Pops and Cain had
hired me, but I didn’t want any complications in case they changed
their mind.

“Why, you son of a bitch!”

The big guy lunged at Chase, but Chase simply caught him by the throat,
pulling a gun and bringing it to the man’s temple in one smooth move.
The second the barrel touched his head, Chase cocked it.

“No one touches the servers. Especially when they don’t want
it.”

“But she –” He was cut off when Chase brought the butt of the
gun down on his head once before putting the barrel back to his temple. The
guy’s knees threatened to buckle, but he kept his footing.
Barely.

“Don’t matter if she did. When you touched her, she changed her
mind. That’s all that counts. So you and your buddies here are all
gonna fuckin’ leave the bar. Now. Don’t come back.”

“You can’t throw us out!” One of his buddies had stood
but made no move to get help. In fact, he had his hands up and backed up a
couple steps, belying his statement.

“He can,” Pops said, coming up behind me. Again, he moved me
gently out of the way, putting himself between me and the three men.
“So can I. We both say to get the fuck out.”

The bar had quietened near us, but the other side seemed oblivious. I
looked around to see a couple at my tables raising nearly empty glasses or
bottles wanting refills. I desperately wanted to duck my head and just go on
about my job, but I had no idea what was expected of me.

“You good, Cotton?” Chase asked, not looking back at me but
still eyeing the men who’d yet to leave.

“Yes,” I said softly. Automatically. My arm hurt, but I
wasn’t about to draw more attention to myself. “May I go back to
work?”

He glanced at me then and I quickly looked away. Chase Dutton was the
sexiest man I’d ever seen. And a man I had no business even looking
at. He also seemed to hate me on sight. Cain and Pops both assured me they
would keep my incarceration to themselves, and I didn’t want to take a
chance on anyone else finding out. Which Chase likely had. Things always
changed when anyone found out. People I thought were friends suddenly wanted
nothing to do with me. I couldn’t really blame them, but it hurt that
no one thought me important enough to find out my side of the story.
I’d kind of been crushing on Chase from a distance, and to have him
affirm that I wasn’t worth befriending — even though I already knew
that’s what he thought — would hurt worse than when it had happened
before. Because I was stupid to let my emotions get the better of me like
this.

“What?” Chase glanced back at me, then snapped, “No you
can’t go back to work! Get your ass to the office! I’ll talk to
you after I’ve taken out the trash over here.”

The Quick Guide to Classroom Management by Richard James Rogers #promo #nonfiction #education #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @BookBuzznet @richardjarogers

45 Secrets That All High School Teachers Need to Know

Non-Fiction, Education

Published: January 31, 2021 (3rd Edition)

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

A no-nonsense guide to effective classroom management in a high school
setting.

This is the much anticipated Third Edition of the original award-winning
volume. Fully indexed and updated, this edition covers the same topics as
the First and Second editions but with new information for 2021 onwards. The
book begins by examining key mistakes teachers make in the ‘direct realm’ –
i.e. when interacting face-to-face with students. These first three chapters
cover rapport-building, active-engagement and behavior management as it
applies in a high-school setting. Following this, the book expansively
covers a range of tips, techniques and tools to engage advanced, exam-level
learners and to effectively enhance the teaching process via the use of
technology. The book concludes with an often overlooked sphere of teaching:
how to work effectively with colleagues and parents (very powerful when
strategized correctly). Bonus material on the unique challenges of teaching
overseas is provided in a plenary chapter. This edition of the book has been
exhaustively proofread and indexed, and is of a much-higher quality than can
be attributed to the First and Second editions.

About the Author

Richard James Rogers received both his bachelor’s degree in Molecular
Biology and his PGCE in Secondary Science Education from Bangor University
(Wales, UK). This was an excellent foundation for the steep learning curve
that would follow as he pursued his career as a teacher of Science and
Mathematics at UK state schools, and afterwards at elite international
schools in Asia. He started teaching professionally in 2005, but he
considers his teaching career to have started back in 1995: when he was a
Lance Corporal and cadet instructor in the Army Cadet Force. He has taught
IGCSE German, Key Stage 3 and 4 Science and Mathematics and three subjects
at ‘AS’, ‘A2’ and IB Diploma level: Biology,
Chemistry and Mathematics. He also went on to lead a team of students to win
the Thailand Tournament of Minds Championship in 2012 and has been an active
educational blogger, columnist and online pedagogical content editor since
2010.

Richard’s debut book, The Quick Guide to Classroom Management: 45
Secrets That All High School Teachers Need to Know, is a widely acclaimed
practical teaching manual for Newly Qualified Teachers and offers an
overview of what, in his experience and research, works best when it comes
to engaging young learners and being happy in your job as a high school
teacher.

Richard’s second book, The Power of Praise: Empowering Students
Through Positive Feedback, focuses on long-term feedback strategies that
schools and individual teachers can use to create innate drive, enthusiasm
and passion for learning. The core theme of the book is the power that
meaningful praise can have in character-building: effects that will last
long-after a child’s schooling is complete.

Richard is a regular contributor to UKEdChat.com and features in their

also fulfilling. This workbook takes you through six steps on improving your
self love journey that can make a difference today!
