Three women, three secrets, one life-changing journey. Alice has always been a trailblazer as a scientist, activist and mother. She knew her choices would involve sacrifices, but now, on the eve of her eightieth birthday, she's beginning to wonder if she's sacrificed too much. Alice's daughter, Sappho, rebelled against her unconventional upbringing, choosing to marry young and embrace life as a homemaker, but her status as a domestic goddess has recently taken a surprising turn. Ged has always been the peacemaker between her grandmother and mother. A tenacious journalist, she knows what she wants in life and love, yet when everything in her world starts falling apart, she begins to question whether she really knows anyone at all. At a crossroads in each of their lives, Alice, Sappho and Ged embark on a celebratory trip together, but instead of bringing them closer, the holiday sparks life-changing consequences and lifts the lid on a fifty-year-old secret.

Success is Just One Wish Away

What would it be? That's the premise of Jon Spoelstra's book, THE ONE-WISH SUCCESS SECRET - a life-changing fable & effective tool for achieving success in any endeavor you choose.

The premise is simple. Imagine a genie who pops out of a can & gives you any one wish you desire. What would it be? That's the premise of Jon Spoelstra's book, THE ONE-WISH SUCCESS SECRET - a life-changing fable & effective tool for achieving success in any endeavor you choose. Spoelstra implemented his system successfully with the Portland Trail Blazers as the team's general manager for several years. Then came his real test: the New Jersey Nets - the worst team in the NBA & considered the worst in all of sports. Applying his "one-wish" success formula, Spoelstra made an incredible transformation in the team's front office. From $400,000 in sponsorships to $7 million in just three years. Gate receipts jumped from $5 million a year to $17 million. And so dramatic was the fan reaction that they went from 29th place or dead last in attendance to 9th place - despite being the worst team in the NBA. Spoelstra's one-wish success system was the secret he used to build the self-esteem of his staff & inspire them to become the top front-office in sports. A disarmingly uplifting fable for anybody wanting to improve their life.

And when she finally locates him, he's not at all what she expected. Dennis might not be everyone's idea of the perfect dad. But as Becky gets to know him, she begins to wonder if she was wrong not to let him into Lilly's life before now. And she can't help but think about her own family, the people she left far behind. Is it ever too late to change your mind, and welcome someone from your past into your present?

He thought she was the one…until she walked away. Now she’s back and he wants her more than ever. As a former Marine, Xander Kingston’s writing keeps him sane. Bonus? His thrillers made him one of Hollywood’s most desired screenwriters—and also introduced him to a fledgling starlet who broke his heart. With his close-knit family in New York, Xander returned home and found peace. Until Sasha Keaton shows up at his Hamptons retreat. Now an A-Lister, she’s as beautiful as he remembers. And just as dangerous to his heart. Sasha learned from watching her mother to never sacrifice her dreams for anyone—only to discover how empty life could be without the man she loved. Now cast in Xander’s latest movie, she needs his insight to play the part, but secretly hopes for a second chance. Xander has built emotional walls to keep Sasha at a distance, but their physical attraction can’t be denied. When a stalker’s threats intensify, Xander moves Sasha into his house to keep her safe. Before long she's back in his bed and making inroads in his life. But when the danger passes and the movie wraps, Sasha and Xander face a familiar choice—put career first or give love a fighting chance.

Living with multiple sclerosis has been an ugly battle. It is a daily fight that has taught me to be a fighter. This nasty battle has inspired me to write this book because I feel that people should know that the cure to everything lies within our heart. I hope that my words inspire all of those people out there fighting some strange illness, like myself. At only 22 years of age, life has been a dramatic journey. Being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at only 19 years of age I have learned that things happen for a reason. Living with multiple sclerosis has been a big challenge. A difficult bump to overcome. My Story is about the struggles I have faced with the symptoms and how I have managed to over come them. My words have inspired those who have heard my story, and hope they will inspire you to never give up. Whether you're sick or not, life goes on. Time doesn't stop no matter how slow life may seem. Doors of opportunity are always around us. Life never stops and neither should we. We all walk a path. Sometimes under the light, sometimes in the dark.

In a small town called Muddlewoods, young Sadie Sugarspear endures intolerable cruelty at the hands of her brutal stepfather. Sadie finds solace in the one thing her real father, Sam Sugarspear, left behind: a book about an imaginary land, ruled by a king who grants wishes. One day, when her stepfather’s cruelty reaches unimaginable depths, Sadie runs away and hides inside a crevice in her beloved willow tree. To her surprise, the tree opens up, sending Sadie falling down into the abyss, into a land she’s only ever read about—where she must begin a long, terrifying, and heartbreaking journey home. This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie. This is the first novella in Nicole Arlyn’s epic dark fantasy series, The Sugarspear Chronicles. Praise for The Sugarspear Chronicles: "This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mikemovies. It will challenge you…But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book." —A.D. Marrow, author of Chaos and Moonlight, Book One of the Order of the Nines series
