Turner Street: Where the Monsters in the Closet are Real (Turner Street Chronicles Book 1)

"R.S. Veira scores big with collection of short stories." - Amazon Reviewer

What if the monsters we thought were lurking under our beds and in our closets were real after all?

For us, the answer to that question can be found in our nightmares, but for the children of Turner Street it’s their reality. Monsters, demons, beasts of the night, or whatever you wish to call them, feast on these adolescents; like cattle raised for slaughter.

The Invisible World Protective Service (IWPS), the agency tasked to protect the children of the world, has been overwhelmed by Turner Street’s unusually high level of supernatural activity. With resources spread thin, drastic measures have been taken. They have been forced to recruit anomalies, children with unique abilities.

A motley crew has been assembled. The team: a teddy bear, a boy and his pet lion, a set of psychic fraternal twins and a time traveler have been saddled with the task of putting an end to the supernatural disturbances on Turner Street. Their success or failure will not only determine the fate of their suburban homes, but of their world.

This collection of short stories is their legacy.

Alexander Hamilton


Read More...

New York Times Bestseller, and the inspiration for the hit Broadway musical Hamilton!

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow presents a landmark biography of Alexander Hamilton, the Founding Father who galvanized, inspired, scandalized, and shaped the newborn nation.


In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is “a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.”

Few figures in American history have been more hotly debated or more grossly misunderstood than Alexander Hamilton. Chernow’s biography gives Hamilton his due and sets the record straight, deftly illustrating that the political and economic greatness of today’s America is the result of Hamilton’s countless sacrifices to champion ideas that were often wildly disputed during his time. “To repudiate his legacy,” Chernow writes, “is, in many ways, to repudiate the modern world.” Chernow here recounts Hamilton’s turbulent life: an illegitimate, largely self-taught orphan from the Caribbean, he came out of nowhere to take America by storm, rising to become George Washington’s aide-de-camp in the Continental Army, coauthoring The Federalist Papers, founding the Bank of New York, leading the Federalist Party, and becoming the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.Historians have long told the story of America’s birth as the triumph of Jefferson’s democratic ideals over the aristocratic intentions of Hamilton. Chernow presents an entirely different man, whose legendary ambitions were motivated not merely by self-interest but by passionate patriotism and a stubborn will to build the foundations of American prosperity and power. His is a Hamilton far more human than we’ve encountered before—from his shame about his birth to his fiery aspirations, from his intimate relationships with childhood friends to his titanic feuds with Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Monroe, and Burr, and from his highly public affair with Maria Reynolds to his loving marriage to his loyal wife Eliza. And never before has there been a more vivid account of Hamilton’s famous and mysterious death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July of 1804.
Chernow’s biography is not just a portrait of Hamilton, but the story of America’s birth seen through its most central figure. At a critical time to look back to our roots, Alexander Hamilton will remind readers of the purpose of our institutions and our heritage as Americans.

When Millionaires Disregard Us

"When Millionaires Disregard Us" by May Harnish

The author of the book, May, is in her 30s. She has been working in international relations sphere for quite some years. One day she decided that she knew and saw too much to write some fiction about everyday modern life in the city (Amsterdam) with its modern priorities. So this is the set of 8 stories published in Amsterdam in January 2017, devoted to adventurous people looking for their place in life in various ways. As in real life (and the stories are based on real life), there are good and bad, and even those who are look good but are bad inside. And those who are sure they are so very bad, but still they remain at least a little bit good. The book is not about love and hate. The book is more about how to live well compromising between love and hate. The author wanted these stories to be reader friendly, so they can accompany one’s 5 o’clock drink and don’t affect readers’ good sleep. “They say: don’t try to meet somebody, better become somebody. They say: don’t believe your past, believe your future. They say: it is important where you finish, not where you start. But it is also important where you have been on the way”.
