Confessions of an Unlikely Runner: A Guide to Racing and Obstacle Courses for the Averagely Fit and Halfway Dedicated

By Dana L. Ayers / Genre: Running & Jogging, Individual Sports, Sports & Outdoors

Confessions of an Unlikely Runner: A Guide to Racing and Obstacle Courses for the Averagely Fit and Halfway Dedicated

Witty, observant, and full of cringe-worthy confessions and heartwarming encouragement, Confessions celebrates both running and life.

Part Bridget Jones, part Forrest Gump, Dana Ayers chronicles her awkward mishaps and adventures in transitioning from childhood bookworm to accidental accomplished athlete. Over the last ten years, Ayers has completed a vast array of races. She runs them all while admittedly not getting much faster, much thinner, or much more disciplined—though she has managed to be on national television, split open her pants, and get electrocuted. Ayers intersperses her hilarious yet relatable struggles with insights about how and why she keeps running.

A self-proclaimed ambassador of slow runners, Ayers has completed dozens of endurance challenges, including Tough Mudder, the Ragnar Relay, Muddy Buddy, Warrior Dash, Run Amuck, the Army Ten-Miler, the Country Music Marathon, and many more mud runs, obstacles courses, and races. Her race descriptions will entertain seasoned runners and non-runners alike. Woven into the chaos of her running adventures is compassionate reassurance for anyone who feels like they aren’t fast enough, athletic enough, or strong enough to finish a tough race.

Though told with humor, Confessions’ stories share an underlying theme of Ayers’ serious reverence for the sport of running and the running community. Ayers describes experiences such as participating in a 1,000-mile relay for Boston Marathon bombing victims, and being overcome by emotion while observing wounded veterans struggling to finish a race. Her stories prove how life-enriching it can be to physically fight for something and to cheer on others who are doing the same.

For anyone who has considered trying a marathon, an obstacle race, or simply taking up running for the first time, Ayers is your ambassador. If she can do it, you can too.

Owen (BBW Western Bear Shifter Romance) (Rodeo Bears Book 2)

There was no chill in Mary Beth Chaudett’s life. Everything was high stakes, high stress. From the outside, it might seem that the daughter of a millionaire rodeo promoter would have it easy. But Mary Beth knew the waters she swam in were full of nothing but sharks and minnows. She’d known plenty of minnows, and they’s all had their dreams and lives devoured by bigger fish. Not me, she swore to herself. So if that meant she had to be meaner than the next girl, fine. If that meant she had to be more honest than the next girl, fine. It’s just that Owen Hutch made her want to stop sharpening her incisors and start settling down. She had to fight extra hard against those ideas, but the magnificent golden-eyed man could make her tremble with a glance.

Owen Hutch was used to the attention, and not just because he was a six foot tall Bear Shifter. Everywhere he went, women fawned over him and men pretended not to stare. He was like a mirror of pure success: everyone looked at him and wondered what they would look like if they were as confident and self assured as he was. Walking into a room meant their conversations ended. Walking into a boutique meant their month was going to have record sales. All because he could ride a bull longer than just about anyone else in this sport. But then there was that sassy little thing with the blue eyes. He didn’t impress her, and that made her all the more interesting…

Her Grace in Disgrace: a Traditional Regency Romance in Kindle and paperback formats.

Reginald Aiken, Duke of Warwick is dead and his young widow is not grieving…until the will is read.

Isobel Kennilworth Aiken, Duchess of Warwick spent 6 years of her young life in a loveless marriage. Now, at the age of 24, Isobel is a widow. As Isobel awaits the reading of her late husband’s last will and testament, she feels no grief, but in fact is quite hopeful. She is eager to start her life anew. But, as the droning of the solicitor’s voice washes over her detailing the bequests to various servants and family members, a shock awaits her. The “other woman” was not his mistress, but his lawfully wedded wife and together they had a son. Six year old Reggie is now the Duke of Warwick, displacing Reginald’s brother Charles.

There is a collective gasp as the revelation is made that instantly cuts off Isobel and Charles and dashes their hopes for the future. Isobel must indeed start again, not as a titled, influential and wealthy widow, but as plain Miss Kennilworth, tainted by scandal, something to be avoided at all costs in Regency England. Can she get past the disgrace and humiliation she has endured and fight her way back into society? Will she find love again with her childhood sweetheart, Andrew Stafford, former vicar, now Lord Saybrooke? Or perhaps she will rekindle the romance with Jeremy Ingles, Lord Westcott, who had caught her fancy at her come out six years earlier, but had not been ready to be leg shackled.

But before Isobel can find true love, she must come to grips with her past mistakes and the people she has hurt along the way. She must discover who she is without the title of duchess to her name.

I Cried, You Didn’t Listen: A First Person Look at a Childhood Spent Inside CYA Youth Detention Systems: Surviving a Life in Prison from Adolescent to Death; Book 1

By Dwight Abbott / Genre: Criminals, True Crime, Biographies & Memoirs

I Cried, You Didn't Listen: A First Person Look at a Childhood Spent Inside CYA Youth Detention Systems: Surviving a Life in Prison from Adolescent to Death; Book 1

An early Winner of the “Project Censored” Award of Excellence; I Cried, You Didn’t Listen is a powerful story. It is shocking, haunting and brutal. Although it is a rare and valuable document, what is exceptional is not Dwight Abbott’s experience, but his clarity and courage in sharing that experience. Dwight tells the disturbing tale of a very young child, first committed to the care of the state because of family tragedy and bad luck. Once institutionalized, he must learn to live within the cruel dynamics of a system that grants power through violence and leaves children at the mercy of predatory adults. He is continually faced with the need to choose between dehumanizing options: Be predator or be prey. Even in Dwight’s description of racialist violence we see the effect that the social system has had on him – cementing stereo-types and prejudices that become self-fulfilling prophesy. Dwight’s account is terrifying. Upon reading it, one must recognize that, faced with the stark choice between victimizing another and being a victim oneself, the morals and values that make sense in freedom fall away. Perpetrating violence appears as the best option for self-preservation. This is the fundamental dynamic at work in Dwight’s institutional life. I Cried, You Didn’t Listen shows that, within incarcerating institutions, violence in all its forms – sexual assault, cliques, crews, gangs, emotional abuse – is essentially about power and control both over and above one’s own sense of self.
