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

Cold Silence of Deception

"Cold Silence of Deception" Eric Redmon

Derick Martin and John Jacobs know a lot about secrets. They know that some secrets are kept to protect the people they care about. Some secrets are kept for the strategic advantages they offer. And some secrets lead only to death.  One thing is for sure: deception is a stone-cold killer. Martin (or is it Jacobs?) has a lot of secrets, including his own identity. As a government operative, he has to. He lives a dual life – one filled with good coffee, family, hopes and dreams; and one filled with strategy and secret identities and the blood of many on his hands. But he knows the blood on his hands is not the blood of innocents. Still, the blood of the enemies of everything he holds dear has no place around a kitchen table. This is a book about one man’s struggle to balance war and family, and how to be honest and honorable while keeping dangerous secrets.  What does the woman he loves need to know? And what is she better off not knowing?
