The Magdalene Malediction
List Price: 14.95
Available: January 2019
In the Midi of France in 1244, political intrigue is as rife in the boudoir as on the battlefield. Four friends — cousins Odon and Rainier, the beautiful Miranda, and Robin, son of the famous English outlaw – escape from a mountain refuge captured by the French and set sail for Provence. Odon carries ancient scrolls indicating that Miranda is the descendant of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. If that relationship were revealed, the lives of all four would be in jeopardy.
Fate, in the form of corsairs, puts them ashore in Moorish territory in Spain, hundreds of leagues southwest of their destination. While Miranda falls under the spell of the local wazir, called Al Azraq—the blue-eyed one — her friends become embroiled in the political ambitions of King Jacme I of Aragon and end up taking sides in a conflict between his men and the Moors. The ancient curse placed on the scrolls seems to come alive as all four fight for survival against foes old and new. 169 The Magdalene Malediction, the last book in the trilogy Ordeal by Fire, spins a riveting tale of bravery, passion, and brutality set against the backdrop of the political ambitions and religious fervor the thirteenth century.

Rules of Engagement: The Will to Live vs. the Will to Survive
List Price: 17.95

The Rules of Engagement: The Will to Live vs. The Will to Survive Tribalism isn’t new to the human experience. In fact, it’s been around as long as humankind. However, lately, the will to survive has grown with intensity, and has given rise to a distorted sense of self-importance and self-indulgence. Self-interest has come to divide people and destroy a vital sense of community and civility that bonds a society.
Author Lorenzo D. Leonard has studied this phenomenon and introduces an alternative way of life; the will to live. The education, development, and practice of commendable character exposes a person’s innate qualities of good.
Leonard proclaims how the attainment of personal credibility and relevance becomes less of an external focus and more of an internal fulfillment through the process of character development. However, this is only the case when an individual can put aside the will to survive and embrace the will to live. Tribalism becomes less of a concern when the qualities of transparency, accountability, integrity, and community are adopted.
The Rules of Engagement: The Will to Live vs. The Will to Survive is a deep dive into the very ideas that transition people into being more humane with one another. Within this literary body of work, readers will recognize the signs of a life lived authentically as well as the limitations that come with a distorted sense of power and superiority.

Poetry As You Like It
List Price: 9.95
Available: January 2019
A poem is an art form that provides a unique manner in which to express one’s emotions or to tell a story. This collection of poems, Poetry As You Like It, masterfully portrays numerous artistic themes found in within the human existence. It is not another boring book of poems similar to required reading for high school English, nor the predictable nursery rhymes of early childhood. William Gay paints pictures describing the perils of love and romance, the gloriousness of beauty, and the wonder of nature. He then transitions to the concepts of family, the meaningless of life without love, and the trials and tribulations of finding joy in fleeting moments.
In addition, faith is acknowledged to be part of man’s everyday nourishment in life. Messages of listening to your faith illustrate to readers they must remain aware of the beauty in life and living in God’s image. Gay then provides a lighter humorous look at life as he debates on the actions of the young versus the old, the art of wooing, and the rollercoaster of emotions that life brings. A more serious tone is introduced as he ponders more intellectual thoughts, such as the evolution of man, the building of civilizations, and the actions of man in life. The final four historical selections focus attention on the epic adventures of man throughout history. The last poem in this collection gives direction for future generations, who should always be striving for the good of all mankind.

In addition to the biographies and family histories contained in its text, volume two includes appendixes with mathematical and historical analyses that support the book’s content and organization. Like its predecessor, this volume is heavily annotated and contains a name index. A set of addenda to volume one has been included as well.
