Book Release: Mind Tavern: Essential Music Playlists for the Headphone Generation

This book is about the best ‘Headphone Music’ ever recorded, at least in the opinion of California writer, Stark Hunter-a baby boomer and old hippie, born in 1952. With a lifetime of listening to all genres of music under his belt, it is his opinion this book contains the best music to hear while wearing headphones, or in today’s vernacular, ear buds. Consisting of 27 recommended “headphone” playlists, Hunter spent 13 years reading and researching articles on classical and contemporary music history, plus spending hundreds, perhaps thousands, of hours exploring and listening to recommended albums, cassettes and 8-track tapes, a majority of which were popular in the booming postwar era of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

It is hoped the readers of this book will approach these music playlists with calm and curious equanimity. It is also recommended that the reader actually makes the effort to look up these carefully chosen musical masterpieces, and spend quality time listening to them, preferably wearing headphones or ear buds. That is the point of this book.

Book Release: The Wrong Life

On the outside, Samantha has it all: money, looks, opportunity, love. But on the inside, Samantha is different. She can’t stop making bad choices. She’s restless and often reckless. In The Wrong Life, we meet Samantha’s family, friends, doctors, lovers, spouse, and her children, all of whom she enlists for help in her constant search for that one elusive thing—happiness.

When Samantha meets Alice, both their lives have fallen into disarray. They develop strong ties as they help each other through dark times. They are soulmates.

Kelly Anne Johnson loves red lipstick, perfectly manicured nails, and strong men. She and Samantha get along so well as college roommates that after school they move together to NYC. Kelly has a lot to say about relationships.

Jay Anthony Russo meets Samantha in high school. He’s been attracted to Samantha forever and regularly shows up wherever she settles—no matter her relationship status.

When Samantha meets Dennis McKenzie, she believes she has found her true love, her protector, and the right life, the one she’s been searching for all this time. Dennis is a celebrated surgeon who adores Samantha, and although he’s aware of her problems, he’s certain he can fix whatever’s wrong and that they’ll be the perfect couple.

And Samantha feels that way too—for a time—until the fear, doubt, and questions creep back in: Did I choose the wrong life? Is there a right life?

Book Release: Professor Wiztinkle and Ginormous Jay vs. Fartina Stincovich!


We are very excited to announce the release of Jeff Pfeiffer’s latest book, Professor Wiztinkle and Ginormous Jay vs. Fartina Stincovich!

Blimps/dirigibles! Sewers, rats, cheese, and a mutant alligator! A flying van! A scorpion drone! Karate! A frikkin‛ Demolecularizer for crying out loud! Not to mention a robot dog versus a real dog! Who‛s got the better sniffer?

Are you sure you‛re ready for this? Okay, but it‛s pretty awesome, so I hope that you are truly, once and for all ready for this. What is this? If you have to ask, maybe you‛re not really ready for this. You are really, really ready, you say? For this?
Okay, okay.

This is the first of many stories about Professor Wiztinkle and Ginormous Jay. Who are they? You keep asking questions like you‛re not ready for this. I‛ll tell you anyway. They are a super science technologist duo. They live in University City and work in the science and technology department of O! State University, which lies at the heart of University City. When they‛re not inventing amazing inventions of amazement, they‛re called upon to be superheroes, if you will, to save the city and sometimes the world.

Professor Wiztinkle is a super genius and one half of the amazing duo, the other half being his super-science partner Ginormous Jay, a hyper-intelligent gorilla in a leather jacket and a unitard. Together they must face the villain of the sewers, Fartina Stincovich, as she and her cohort—Billy “Buttface” McFarter and accompanying stenchmen—threaten to drop dirty diapers into the Old n‛ Grungy river, and more terrible still, into University City‛s water supply!

So I ask you again: Are. You. Ready. For. This?

Book Release: Tales from the 4th Grade: 75 Short Stories

Originally published in English, we would like to congratulate Megan Fluhart on the release of the Spanish edition of her book, Tales from the 4th Grade: 75 Short Stories!

Step into the imagination of a fourth-grader…

The stories within this book were written and illustrated by Megan Fluhart when she was in fourth grade. Then 17 years later, her dad, Doug Fluhart, edited and compiled them into this book.

The resulting collection of short stories and illustrations is a fantastical window into the mind of a kid. Often hilarious, always wildly imaginative, this book will delight kids of all ages (and parents too!) with the creativity of one fourth-grader’s storytelling.

Book Release: Two Ships

We are excited to announce the release of James Redwood’s book, Two Ships!

The first half of the 17th century brought war to Europe like never before. The struggle between Protestant and Catholic pitted nations, armies, cities, and neighboring villages against one another. Young Piotr Nowak’s family is caught up in the maelstrom of violence, and he is forced to flee his home. Penniless and alone, he finds passage on a ship bound for the New World. Jana Mueller loses her father to the soldiers quartering in her village. Sent away from the violence to Ireland, she starts her training as a nun and is assigned to a ship leaving for Quebec City.

When the two ships leave port, a journey is initiated that will take them into the unknown landscape of forest and rivers, and weave the lives of the travelers together with the land and the people in it. Each of them will have to learn to survive, thrive, and fight for a chance to find their place in the world.

Two Ships is an entertaining tale of exploration and survival. Author Redwood’s engaging story and characters drew me into their adventure and made me feel like I had traveled back to the 17th century with them! If you are a fan of historical fiction or just enjoy a great read check out this novel!” – Amazon 5-star review
