About Death of a Jester

“This is going to sound crazy. But there was a clown back there trying to lure a kid into the woods.” The police cannot decide if the clown sightings in Grambling pose a threat or are just a hoax – until a young homeless boy is lured away from his parents in the dead of night. Malachi’s past is haunting him: he is pulled between a desire to find the boy who was snatched from Tent City and a need to drown his memories of another little boy. But then in the midst of the kidnapping case, a murder occurs. Can reporter Branigan Powers and Malachi bring the truth to light before the little boy is harmed, and before the wrong person is convicted of murder?

About Rampage

The definitive history of one of the most brutal campaigns of the war in the Pacific. Before World War II, Manila was a slice of America in Asia, populated with elegant neoclassical buildings, spacious parks, and home to thousands of U.S. servicemen and business executives who enjoyed the relaxed pace of the tropics. The outbreak of the war, however, brought an end to the good life. General Douglas MacArthur, hoping to protect the Pearl of the Orient, declared the Philippine capital an open city and evacuated his forces. The Japanese seized Manila on January 2, 1942, rounding up and interning thousands of Americans.MacArthur, who escaped soon after to Australia, famously vowed to return. For nearly three years, he clawed his way north, obsessed with redeeming his promise and turning his earlier defeat into victory. By early 1945, he prepared to liberate Manila, a city whose residents by then faced widespread starvation. Convinced the Japanese would abandon the city as he did, MacArthur planned a victory parade down Dewey Boulevard. But the enemy had other plans. Determined to fight to the death, Japanese marines barricaded intersections, converted buildings into fortresses, and booby-trapped stores, graveyards, and even dead bodies.The twenty-nine-day battle to liberate Manila resulted in the catastrophic destruction of the city and a rampage by Japanese forces that brutalized the civilian population. Landmarks were demolished, houses were torched, suspected resistance fighters were tortured and killed, countless women were raped, and their husbands and children were murdered. American troops had no choice but to battle the enemy, floor by floor and even room by room, through schools, hospitals, and even sports stadiums. In the end, an estimated 100,000 civilians lost their lives in a massacre as heinous as the Rape of Nanking. Based on extensive research in the United States and the Philippines, including war-crimes testimony, after-action reports, and survivor interviews, Rampage recounts one of the most heartbreaking chapters of Pacific war history.

Taza chocolate is organic, fair trade, stone ground chocolate with a knock-your-socks-off flavor and gloriously gritty texture, unlike anything else you’ve tasted.

Health experts agree that dark chocolate and red wine are two treats that are actually good for you. So indulge this holiday season with some of the purest, healthiest chocolate on the market. Taza’s dark chocolate is dairy free, soy free, gluten free, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified USDA Organic, Direct Trade Certified (growers are paid a premium over Fair Trade price), made in America from bean to bar, and has a minimal ingredients list (organic cacao beans, organic cane sugar, spices depending on flavor) without any weird lecithins or other emulsifiers. Taza’s super dark (85%) to wicked dark (95%) will even work for those on keto or other low-carb diets.

Store owner Jill Hendrix will also be presenting other gift ideas for hostess gifts and last-minute gifts. Jill says: “My mom taught me to have a stocked gift shelf of already-wrapped presents so you are covered if you accidentally left someone off your list or your neighbor unexpectedly shows up at your doorstep with a gift.” Let us help you knock one worry off your list and make your holidays a little less stressful with some easy present ideas that work for almost anyone.

About The Only Woman in the Room

She possessed a stunning beauty. She also possessed a stunning mind. Could the world handle both?

Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. Underestimated in everything else, she overheard the Third Reich’s plans while at her husband’s side, understanding more than anyone would guess. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, screen star.

But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis…if anyone would listen to her.

A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionized modern communication, The Only Woman in the Room is a masterpiece.
