"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews


"A potent mix of fantasy, romance, intrigue." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
     Sheft is an eighteen-year-old who harbors a deadly secret. Convinced he is a danger to all around him, he keeps himself apart. So when he falls in love with Mariat, it's an unexpected--and in some ways unwanted--experience that he believes can only lead to tragedy. 
     The author could easily have stopped here, focusing on the developing romance and Sheft's struggle to break his bonds of isolation. But events move in a more complex direction, and love serves only as the starting point for a journey that leads Sheft to discover more about his destiny and the underlying supernatural forces at work in his world.
     In a book world replete with formula genre reads, this novel offers something different: a potent mix of fantasy, romance, intrigue, and a believable protagonist whose current dilemma is just the beginning of his evolutionary process.
     Blood Seed provides an action-packed saga that carries readers on an evocative journey with no pat ending. Fans of genre crossovers who appreciate romance, powerful protagonists, and coming-of-age reads will relish the unexpected in the complex world explored in this first volume of the four-book series Coin of Rulve. 
 "A new approach to this genre." Maria Beltran. Readers Favorite Book Review. 
      Sheft hides a dark secret. In the fantastic world created by the author, he confronts an unusual antagonist: Wask, the flesh-eating beetle-man. This creature haunts the village of At-Wysher because it is attracted to Sheft's blood. The young man's journey begins when a disturbing revelation about his destiny leads him into imminent danger.
      Something mysterious about Sheft draws Mariat toward him. They eventually fall in love, but the author refuses to create a predictable romance. This is her first novel, and it brings an interesting new approach to this genre. Blood Seed has all the elements that fantasy fans want to see in a novel, but it is more than that. It portrays a battle between good and evil, but does not let you swim in a shallow sea of fiction writing. The book seems to say that what one regards as a malediction can be seen from a different perspective, that the act of redemption always brings the opportunity for transformation. This, to me, is the heart of this wonderful book.
"For readers who enjoy dark fantasy, but who still prize romantic fiction. You won't be disappointed." K.C. Finn. Readers Favorite

      Blood Seed is a character-driven story that takes place in a world awash with dark rites and fearful beasts worthy of any horror novel. But all this plays second fiddle to the romantic drama between Sheft and Mariat. Fans of destiny plots and unbreakable romances are sure to love the deep and intimate moments which these two share, and the harrowing challenges which they face. I'd definitely recommend Blood Seed to readers who enjoy dark fantasy settings, but who still prize romantic fiction. You won't be disappointed.
 "An excellent story." Judge, 24th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards
     Well-paced. Awesome rhetorical device use. Lines that stand out as original and deeply moving. Wonderful emotional and romantic tension."
