After a successful blind date, Linda and Eric want to change the world.
With fiery passion for both each other and their common cause, they hatch a twisted plan. The first step: to assemble a loyal team of hotshots, each with a specific skill set.
Assigned to special regions all over the globe, the team launches a two-week campaign to conquer war, anger and hate. One slip-up and they could all end up in jail... and the keen Detective Vega, who seems to be on to them, is asking too many questions.
But can Linda and Eric’s love survive the distance, and will all the love in the world be enough to create peace on Earth?
Ever wished to be like Sleeping Beauty so you could take a nap--for once? Isn't it a bit annoying how the fairytale princes always get the girl, or how the three little pigs always beat the wolf?
Well, that's all about to change. . . .

Twenty years after Penny’s Hawaiian adventure, she and her husband are moving to Las Vegas, Nevada.
But when they run out of gas in the Mojave Desert, the couple is rescued by a famous painter. The eccentric artist hires Penny to redecorate his property, while her husband finds work on a skyscraper on the Strip.
Things are looking up, until Penny hears rumors about human trafficking. When her daughter goes missing, Penny’s mothering instinct goes into high gear. But will a mother’s love make a difference, or does God hold all the cards?
Forty-eight hours is all Penny's got to rescue Lani, and the clock is ticking.
It is almost Christmas, and Penny is not at her desk. Feeling that everyone takes her for granted, Penny itches for adventure.
Enter Captain Dan Losegg.
On a whim, Penny abandons all responsibilities and dashes off to Hawaii with the charming pilot. But before she can say Aloha, trouble is brewing faster than Kona coffee.
Can Penny get out of the dangerous situation, and return safely to everyone's heart?

The anthology was compiled and edited by Rick Tannenbaum.
"As the world falls apart, someone has to try to put it all together again. Ficiton Noir is a collection of short fiction from an assortment of authors at Hen House Press, as they craft stories of people on the edge in a dark world and trying to find something that means anything where all humanity seems to be lost. Fiction Noir is a thoughtful exploration of noir, very much recommended reading." --Small Press Bookwatch, April 2012, The Midwest Book Review.
This collection of short stories is as diverse as the Creativia authors who wrote them. Travel to Victorian London, an otherworldly slave market, a faraway planet, a quaint English town and other wondrous places in the pages of Once Upon a Broken Dream.
Now, she’s back and has to tell them the story within a story, but how can she make them believe? So she had made a mistake - but didn’t all teenagers do the same thing?
The Fifth Commandment is a supernatural memoir entwined with a plot drenching with old-fashioned religious guilt, and short enough to finish in a single sitting - perhaps lounging by the pool or sitting in the garden. The novella follows Christina into a confessional and starts at what we would consider our weakest point.
The point when we first admit our sin.
Theories of HER was created to disrupt.
Theories of HER was also created to celebrate all types of women and showcase diverse voices.
Because much like this book itself, women have layers.
Over 50 contributors from all across the world, and all walks of life, have come together as they share what it is to be her, know her, and to champion her. This collection attempts to connect the seemingly unconnected -through poetry, essays, fiction and art- with contributors ranging from award-winning veterans to emerging writers and artists.
While each piece stands alone, there’s also a merging tapestry that takes the reader through a lifetime, with topics ranging from gender and societal expectations, to love, loss, relationships and self-acceptance.

I don’t need a special day to be awkward, uncomfortable and falsely selfless. That’s what dating was for. Blythe Jewell
This is not to imply that the only men who remember Valentine’s Day are philanderers. Some of them, for example, are only thinking about cheating. Greg Podolski
We lovingly refer to it as Valentine’s Day because "Sex for Chocolate Day" was vetoed by the greeting card industry. Leigh Anne Jasheway
Valentine’s Day is about those five little words: Charge it to my Visa. Jim Shea
Inappropriate Valentine's Day Gifts include: Tickets to a ball game, box of chocolates left over from Christmas, vacuum cleaner, herpes. Jonathan Shipley
Clubbing a man over the head with a bat and dragging him into your love den has been interpreted as somehow criminal, by people who belong to fringe groups like the "police" and the "courts". What in heaven’s name is a girl to do?! Kate Heidel
GRADY HARP, Hall of Fame Reviewer, says:
"One of those `must have' books not only because it is terrific reading but also because it has a lot to say about contemporary relationships. Kudos to a crew of writers who are very in the know about love and relationships. This is a little treasure of a book with some of the most terse humor being written today!"
A writer is given one last chance to prove himself--if he's finally able to set his past aside.
Becoming Moon is a coming-of-age story about a young man struggling to be himself amid pressure from a repressive family. Following his dream of becoming a writer, he turns from everything he knows, and enters adulthood embittered, angry, and resentful.
As he struggles to make a name for himself, he is presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Although it requires a betrayal of his principles as an artist, he resigns himself to what appears to be fate. The compromise brings money and recognition, but these are fleeting and he soon finds himself caught in a web of depression and financial hardship.
Desperate, the writer begins taking trips to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where he hopes to reconnect with his muse. During one of these excursions, he meets Nigel Moon, a grizzled author nearing the end of his career. Moon gives the writer a second golden opportunity and the chance to prove himself in the face of personal doubts--but only if the writer is able to set his past aside.
