Innocence: Part 1, Chapters 1 to 21

Heart-stopping supernatural thriller from the master of suspense. Addison Goodheart is not like other people...

Addison Goodheart lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from a society which will destroy him if he is ever seen.

Books are his refuge and his escape: he embraces the riches they have to offer. By night he leaves his hidden chambers and, through a network of storm drains and service tunnels, makes his way into the central library.

And that is where he meets Gwyneth, who, like Addison, also hides her true appearance and struggles to trust anyone.

But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - New Beginnings

"Tim Hurtletuta has forgotten something. He cannot see or fully understand what it is yet, but behind his awareness a far wiser and more powerful part of him knows that what he's lost has never faded far from view. Its memory waits ever present for his arrival, compassionately and intuitively nudging him towards the peripheries of his reality inside every moment it can. The decision's his to make. Will he remain where and who he believes himself to be? Or will he choose to go against everything his better judgement tells him and open his eyes to embrace the memory as it unfolds itself around him. One thing's for sure, whichever path he chooses his life will never be the same again." The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta is a profound and quirky fictional journey exploring one man's unique remembrance of this beautiful conundrum called life. Book One, New Beginnings is the start of that journey. An inspirational story of change where the past, the present and the future all roll into one resonant and endearing tale of now and how that now came to be. Please note that the novel has been written and edited in British English. This is Book One in "The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta" series. If you find this book resonates with you, be sure to check out Book Two, "The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - Balance."

The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - Balance

"After every new beginning comes a period of balance, a space for realignment where the seeds of that new beginning can take root and grow. But what is balance? Through the expression of humanity, balance can be perceived in so many different ways, making it near impossible to find a universal understanding of its form. What connects us inside this conundrum however, is the remembrance of how balance manifests itself through our collective humanity. A manifestation that regardless of our myriad of linear interpretations and ways of being, will always conceptually unite us as one. On one fine summer's eve, with his nearest and dearest by his side, Tim invites you to return to his journey and unite your unique perception with his. Your presence will be sure to help create a remarkably good evening." The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta is a profound and quirky fictional journey exploring one man's unique remembrance of this beautiful conundrum called life. Book Two, Balance, is a continuation of that journey. An inspirational story of personal discovery and how such discovery connects the inner world we witness with outer world we see. Although it would be awesome if you read Book One, "The Tales of Tim Hurtletuta - New Beginnings," before you read this book, it must be noted that there is no prerequisite that indicates that you need to. Although this story is indeed a continuation of what has been, it has also been designed to stand alone in its own right too. As is such, please trust your intuition on where is the right place for you to join Tim's journey. You can't go wrong. Please note that the novel has been written and edited in British English.

The Prophet is a book of 26 prose poetry essays written in English by the Lebanese artist, philosopher and writer Kahlil Gibran. It is Gibran's best known work. The Prophet has been translated into over 40 different languages and has never been out of print. Gibran followed The Prophet with The Garden of The Prophet, which was published posthumously. The prophet, Almustafa, has lived in the foreign city of Orphalese for 12 years and is about to board a ship which will carry him home. He is stopped by a group of people, with whom he discusses topics such as life and the human condition. The book is divided into chapters dealing with love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death. The Garden of the Prophet narrates Almustafa's discussions with nine disciples following Almustafa's return after an intervening absence.

Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and philosopher. Regarded as a literary and political rebel, his romantic style was at the heart of the renaissance in modern Arabic literature.

The Way of The Fairy Godmother

2015 Winner Writers Digest Self Published eBook Inspirational category.

First Place 2016 Golden Apple Awards for Inspirational eBook

I am a seeker of serenity, searching for the pathways of enduring happiness. Decades of exploring and synthesizing avenues to wisdom led me to my favorite fairytale, the tale of Cinderella. This time I didn't interpret the fairytale from Cinderella's viewpoint. Instead I apprenticed to the Fairy Godmother. I noticed the Fairy Godmother lives within uncompromising, radiant happiness. Her lifestyle is dangerously optimistic. As a result she expedites miraculous outcomes. It's not that she doesn't notice the problems of life. Cinderella didn't have a dress for the ball. She needs a coach and driver. When you are grounded in reality you deal with the problems.

I don't want to tell you how old I was before I began creating my life from the perspective of the Fairy Godmother. Let's just leave it at, for much of my life I was in the habit of creating life from Cinderella's point of view. More often than not I was disappointed. Like Cinderella I worked and worked to create harmony in environments that would not support harmony. Such an unstinting effort is exhausting, especially after several decades. To say it was stressful and no fun only scratches the surface of the issue. It was a harsh and bleak way to live. Imagine Cinderella in her thirties and forties scrubbing away at the kitchen floor, struggling to make beauty in an environment for people who cannot appreciate elegance. Living life from Cinderella's perspective is to stay entrapped in the young maiden who longs for fulfillment. Hardship is her constant companion. Unfulfilled relationships are her unremitting burden.

My quest? Mature beyond the Cinderella archetype. Find enduring happiness. Imitating Cinderella had generated disasters. It's tough to admit. I'm trained in the skills of good communication and the secrets of happy relationships. I have a masters degree in counseling and I've spent decades running down the pathways of mystics, practicing their healing methods. But when it came to relationships even the people who love me the most shook their heads in dismay. Okay, I'll confess. I was in my fifties when I set about studying the ways of the Fairy Godmother.

Way of the Fairy Godmother explores the skills of savoring and what is already working in life. One teacher claimed; if we can breathe we can improve our circumstances. He meant "breathe" in the literal, not metaphoric, sense. That's intense! Do you know the power of a cleansing breath? So when the Fairy Godmother arrived in Cinderella's vegetable garden, almost hidden by the stalks of corn, she didn't talk with Cinderella about her problems. The Fairy Godmother's first conversation with Cinderella explored her dreams and Cinderella's dream was a first date with the Prince. This is important because entwining Deepest Desires with our strengths leads us into a state of absorption and flow. Like the athlete who finds 'the zone' we are lost in the pleasure of growing mastery. One of Cinderella's strengths? Her need to create beauty. She didn't just clean her house, she made her home shine with the love she put into her task. Loving was another strength. Also a Fairy Godmother models a positive language specific to goals and ambitions. Why? Our brains translate our words and thoughts into images. Our biochemistry interacts with images. The Fairy Godmother teaches the power of visual images to prepare us for success and happiness. A Proclamation will revolutionize Cinderella's life. Why? Clear goals initiate self-esteem. Focal points of beauty support her on the journey. Golden Ladders each rung associated with behaviors congruent with Deepest Desires will delineate the territory of personal happiness. With step by step procedures we too enter the world of the Fairy Godmother. If we are stuck in the Cinderella rut, there is a better way.

THE SWAMP ANGEL: A Psychological Novel from one of the New Thought pioneers, author of Thoughts are Things, Your Forces and How to Use Them, The God in You & The Gift of Understanding

"The Swamp Angel" is the first novel and one of the early works of Prentice Mulford. The novel is written in first person and tells the story of a man who is determined to build a house in the woods and lives there alone. As the building goes on, he asks some deep philosophical and psychological questions and tries to give the answers. He finally ends up in failure and realizes man should not be alone.

Prentice Mulford (1834-1891) was a noted literary humorist, comic lecturer, author of poems and essays, and a columnist. He was also instrumental in the founding of the popular philosophy, New Thought, along with other notable writers including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Mulford's book, Thoughts are Things served as a guide to this new belief system and is still popular today. He also coined the term Law of Attraction.

What makes the Unable to Die series stand out?

It's a number of things, really. When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create a compelling mix of the sort of books I like to read. I ended up with something you might call a cyberpunk adventure set in an increasingly dystopian society. I had a lot of fun writing it, and so far readers seem to be having just as much fun reading it.

I'm particularly proud of the book's real-world relatability. A lot of us have known an elderly person who feels ready to pass on. Past a certain age, some would even call that impulse natural. Having my 91-year-old character discover he's immortal made for an entertaining twist on the reluctant hero figure.

How far into the future does the story go?

I don't want to spoil anything, but the series format allowed me to carry the premise a lot further than a standalone story typically would. A lot of things develop in unexpected ways, from the character level all the way up to the fate of the world. It gets pretty epic.

The Unable to Die series is a riveting chronicle of the future that will keep you guessing. There are times this series will have you wondering whether you're reading utopian science fiction instead of a dystopian world story. But it all becomes clear by the end.

Why should readers give the Unable to Die series a try?

Because it's a gripping tale of a possible future. Anyone interested in artificial intelligence, environmental catastrophe, economic precariousness, and immortality is in for a treat. I've been hearing from readers that they've read the entire series in a single day.

Thank you for reading!

ZADIG - The Book of Faith (Historical Novel): A Story from Ancient Babylonia

Zadig or The Book of Fate is a famous novel and work of philosophical fiction written by Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire. It tells the story of Zadig, a philosopher in ancient Babylonia. Disillusioned with women, Zadig turns to science but his knowledge lands him in prison. Upon his release from prison, Zadig rises in favour with the king and queen of Babylonia and is eventually appointed prime minister, but he is forced to flee the kingdom after his love for queen Astarte is discovered. Having reached Egypt, Zadig kills an Egyptian man while valiantly saving a woman from the attack and this crime means that he must become a slave. After earning his freedom, he begins his journey back to Babylonia in order to discover what has become of Astarte and he is taken captive by a group of Arabs, from whom he learns that king Moabdar has been killed. On his return, the final part of the challenge to be king is taking place. The author does not attempt any historical accuracy, and some of the problems Zadig faces are thinly disguised references to social and political problems of Voltaire's own day. It is philosophical in nature, and presents human life as in the hands of a destiny beyond human control.

Francois-Marie Arouet (1694-1778), known by his nom de plume Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher famous for his wit, his attacks on the established Catholic Church, and his advocacy of freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and separation of church and state. As a satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticize intolerance, religious dogma, and the French institutions of his day.

The UnFolding Series is told in four novels and eleven companion shorts (ten novelettes and one novella). Companion shorts are not stand-alone works, but rather additional morsels that enhance the reader's knowledge of the characters, plot, actions, and worlds in the UnFolding Series

I suggest reading the UnFolding Series in order although each group of shorts between novels can be enjoyed in any order you wish. You might like to save a companion short in your e-reader or smartphone to read when you find yourself in a waiting situation on earth and wish to visit another planet to pass a bit of time.

Leading a lonely life in a halfway house, Eleanor escapes the primary reality via an electronic disc she attaches to her temple. When Eva returns Eleanor's affection and offers her a job, Eleanor is tempted to stay in her new life that seems to provide everything real life doesn't. As she prepares to leave the primary reality behind for good, nurse MacKenzie knocks on the door of her room...
