Myths and Monsters

"Myths and Monsters Grown-up Coloring Book, Volume 1" by M. Patrick Duggan

| Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Coloring Book for grown-ups with 30 Art Nouveau and Art Deco inspired illustrations of mythical gods, goddesses, monsters, heroes, and creatures. Includes commentary on the Art Nouveau movement, along with notes about mythology across multiple cultures. Reviews: "Can not say how much I love this book!" I've been wondering where this book has been all my life? It's a great book of Gods, Goddesses and mythological figures. Figures depicted with care and reverence, not just the standard Greco-Roman faire either. It's peppered with Native American, Egyptian, West African, Hindu, Buddhist deities and figures. And its done in the Art Nouveau style, there are details but not too many as you can add your own. Plus the info about each figure depicted is great and adds some humor. Each drawing/peice is one sided so ideal for watercolor, markers or gel pens as long as you slip a blank sheet behind. If you like Mythology and Art Nouveau you won't be disappointed. Can't wait for who volume 2 brings us. ~Roshshonna L. Ridout "Two Very Enthusiastic Thumbs Up!" Full disclosure: the artist/writer is my younger brother. Don't let that fool you about my high rating as he's been the bane of my existence most of my life, especially during adolescence. This coloring book, however, is really a testament to his creativity. It's not just the pictures, it's the informative, yet very amusing, little descriptions that make it special. I love it and have even bought more that one copy...which reminds me, don't you think he should've tossed me a complimentary copy or two? Brothers, good grief. ~Jaye

The Development Alternative

"The Development Alternative" by Sophia Sanchez

This book focuses on critical aspects of worker development designed for business leaders responsible for bottom-line business objectives. The overall goal is to help these organizational leaders get the results they want through their most valuable business asset: The employees. Reviews: "Must read for any manager, supervisor, or HR staffer!" This is a great read! So many of these types of books are too verbose and usually I end up forcing myself to just "get through", while not gaining anything. Sophia Sanchez gives her readers solid advice and sound practices to increase production and evaluate the quality of employees. Every manager should read this as it really helps you "see" who your employees really are. ~ Amazon Customer "Helped Me with My Sales Team" As a manager of a large sales team, this book has helped me develop the team into a goal-oriented approach and has also helped the camaraderie between the team as they do not feel like they are competing against each other more than they are helping one another. Recommended for any manager or sales team leader and above who need motivational ideas to help employees. ~ Ryan Reynolds

"Sadie's War" by Jayelle Cochran

A blind traumatized teen learns of love and becomes the catalyst for a revolution! Abandoned by her parents to live on the streets, Sadie never knew kindness without first paying a terrifying price. The lessons from her childhood fuel a paranoia that makes it impossible to trust anyone, or accept their help. That all changes when she meets Fester, a young man with his own painful past. After he saves her from freezing to death, Sadie realizes that she must learn to trust another if she wants to live; a feat easier said than done.  Meanwhile a war is brewing. For decades the supernaturals have been plotting their revolt against a tyrannical government that exploits them. After using her own supernatural power against an attacker, Sadie and her friends soon find themselves in the government's cross-hairs. To survive, they are forced to team up with a criminal who has plans for Sadie and wishes to ignite the war. Will Sadie ever be able to find a way to save herself and those she has come to care for, or will this war destroy more than the government's hold on her kind?

Reviews: "Even better than her last one!" Girl Vs. is a fun ride on the apocalypse train. It's a bit dark, but the characters are rich and vibrant. ~ Benreece "Loved it" I find this book to be extremely engaging right from the start and is very character driven. You are prepared in order to take the journey alongside the characters like you are experiencing their lives with them. I find this is down to the passion in which this author writes. Science fiction is generally a take it or leave it genre for me. I'm very picky about which books I read that include this. I found this novel to be one of those books that I can read that doesn't feel overly done. It concentrates more on the characters lives rather than the world around them which i love. Very highly recommendedAmanda
