The Art of Getting to YES

By Lynn Baber

Fear strikes the heart of most folks when they hear, “We need to talk…” from their boss or spouse. Heart rates soar, blood pressure rises, and concentration on anything else is pretty much toast. Unless the specific intent was to cause panic, one bit of questionable communication can ruin your day. Effective communication is hard. Concise effective communication is an art. For those who don’t have the gift, questions can even the playing field. That’s how questions became the foundation of the author’s career and inspired this short-read book. People who ask brilliant questions are often more successful than people who give brilliant answers. It’s like the old story about the difference between giving someone a fish or teaching them how to fish. One answer won’t make your career, but skillfully asking the right questions might.

At the age of twenty-nine-plus-one, I am at the top of my game…professionally. My personal life is a completely different story, one best left untold. Success has its sacrifices and I’ve been more than happy to put my search for Prince Charming on the back burner while I create fictitious tales of the naïve virgin, the broken girl with a torrid past, and the strong-willed student finding their own Mr. Right… Until one hell of a case of writer’s block and a tight deadline set by my publisher forces me outside my cozy downtown Boston apartment in search of inspiration. Armed with an account on every dating website out there, I devise a plan. Meet some nice, professional men. Go on a few dates. Hope one of them has the spark I need to finish my book. Then walk away.

The Desert Run: A tense and gripping crime thriller

By Gregg Dunnett

One little crime doesn’t make you a criminal? Does it? Jake is doing everything he can to lead a normal life. But normality doesn’t seem that interested.

Together they will drive to the Atlas Mountains and fill Ben’s van with cheap, high-quality dope. They’ll drive home, past two international borders, and somehow find someone to buy it. If they succeed they can clear their debts and start their working lives with a clean financial slate. And a gap-year adventure to keep them going through the tedious nine to five. But if Jake thought normal life was hard to crack, he’s certainly underestimated international drug smuggling. Tense, gripping, filled with where-did-that-come-from twists, The Desert Run is an exciting thriller that lets you experience the irresistible call of adventure.

The Death of Ivan Ilych

By Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy

The Death of Ivan Ilyich was first published in 1886. It is a novella by Leo Tolstoy. It is one of Tolstoy’s most celebrated pieces of late fiction. This work stems in part from Tolstoy’s anguished intellectual and spiritual struggles which led to his conversion to Christianity. Central to the story is an examination on the nature of both life and death, and how man can come to terms with death’s very inevitability. The novella was acclaimed by Vladimir Nabokov and Mahatma Gandhi as the greatest in the world.
