Asylum Lake

By R. A. Evans / Genre: Horror / Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Asylum Lake

“An easy read, the characters were likable, and the story was gripping.”

Memories are like water. Some float on the surface bright and clear. Some lie deeper – blurred by time and distance. Others rest far from the light in the depths of the darkness. These memories are best forgotten. At the bottom of Asylum Lake the unremembered are growing restless.

After the sudden death of his wife, Brady Tanner moves to the small Michigan town where he spent summers as a youth. But he soon learns that small towns can be stained by memories…and secrets too. As Brady is drawn into unearthing the secrets of the town and of the abandoned psychiatric hospital on the shores of Asylum Lake, he discovers a new love in an old friend. But there is an evil presence lurking beneath the waters of the lake. What is the source of this evil–and what does it want with Brady Tanner?

The Black Dog and The American Woman

By J. D. Reid / Genre: Action & Adventure / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

The Black Dog and The American Woman

“This is a great story and really introduces a different culture.”

The Black Dog and the American Woman is one of those stories that transport the reader somewhere new and rarely experienced. The scene is set on an eco-Tour somewhere on the upper reaches of the Cuyabeno River deep in the Amazon rainforest of central Ecuador. A group of tourists has arrived and is just settling into camp as dark clouds gather and a ferocious black dog runs through the tangle of the jungle in hot pursuit of its prey. On one level, it is an interesting and often thrilling tale told of an eco-Tour gone bad; but it is much more than that. As the fine balance of life and death is revealed in the canopy above them, and in their fearful flight up the river, the reader is immersed in the reality of the jungle as few stories of this type have done before. As stated in his remarks, the author has direct experience in this regard; there is a suggestion some aspects of this story might even be true, and it certainly reads like it. The writing is reminiscent of Somerset Maugham’s short stories of the Far East as well as Joseph Conrad’s of the Malay Peninsula. It is a morality tale in which good and bad, like life and death, are in near equal balance.

Good Enough Parenting – Free Kindle Book

By Lisl Fair / Genre: Parenting & Families / Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

Good Enough Parenting - Free Kindle Book

“I recommend this book to every parent – it will definitely make parenting easier and more enjoyable!”

Discipline is one of the key aspects of parenting that often makes parents feel as if they are not doing well enough. In fact, many new parents find it difficult to adopt a consistent approach on how to discipline their toddlers and children effectively, and more importantly, without guilt.

The wide range of books, formulas and methods about parenting toddlers and child discipline available today unfortunately makes it more complicated for new parents to understand the topic as they usually lack practical ideas that can be adapted and implemented in their own households.

In Good Enough Parenting, Lisl Fair encourages parents to stop trying to be the “Perfect Parent” they believe they ought to be. Referencing studies from various books and real-life examples, she helps parents to strike a balance between their children’s needs and their own, and at the same time raise children who will be happy and responsible.

Lisl advocates and provides a framework from which parents can make informed decisions on disciplining toddlers and children that fit their own parenting goals and needs.

This guide book is for parents who find prescriptive discipline methods limiting and want to learn more about adopting the best toddler and child discipline and parenting approaches based on their own household situation and beliefs.
