Have you ever ordered leather cheese? Have you ever told your cab driver that your hotel is located on One-Way Street? I doubt it. But English speakers trying to speak German say bizarre things like this all the time and I, for one, feel their pain. Acutely, even. They are speaking Dumb Deutsch. And they have no one else to blame but themselves. The German language is complex, treacherous and terribly difficult to learn, you see. Dumb Deutsch, on the other hand, is relatively straightforward and can be learned in about fifteen minutes. This is the problem, of course. And here are some of the shocking results. Please sit back and enjoy this short collection of bloodcurdling blunders, frightful faux pas and grisly gaffes, all in the Dumb Deutsch original. For the sake of fairness, a number of ridiculous errors Germans make when trying to speak English have also been included. Bitte Beachten: Diese Sammlung von peinlichen Ausrutschern und haarsträubenden Fehltritten ist selbstverständlich auch für
Deutsche Leser geeignet.

What they’re saying about it:

Excellent funny book. Very funny book, relating dumb things people say while trying out their high school German. Laughing so hard at my normally quiet workplace I had tears in my eyes, my boss walked by and asked if I was OK. Oh yeah! S/he has a great sense of humor with an eye toward languages. Buy this book and laugh yourself silly! – Kevin J Toomey

A NEW HERO FOR A NEW ERA

Mustang Sally has some speedy shoes to fill. This young superhero has waited her whole life to join Just Cause – the premiere team of American heroes. Now she’s hoping her super-speed will earn a spot on the same team to which her parents and grandparents belonged.

AN OLD GRUDGE FROM AN OLD ENEMY

A chance encounter with the villain who killed her father changes everything. Even though she’s only an intern, Sally devotes herself to finding the man known as Destroyer. With the help of her eagle-winged best friend Sondra and her super-strong love interest Jason, her investigations uncover a sinister plot stretching all the way back to her grandparents’ era. Sally and Just Cause must risk everything to halt Destroyer’s plans and save the entire world.

BONUS FEATURES

Beyond the revised original text, this volume contains three all-new short stories that expand upon the history of Mustang Sally’s family line in the context of the Just Cause Universe. It also contains a summary of the historical and contemporary superhero teams that have been part of the legendary history.

What they’re saying about it:

“I had a hard time putting this one down. I love superheroes and Just Cause is an action packed superhero adventure. Mr. Healy has done a great job creating a world that is coherent and has history to it. I wouldn’t exactly call the world realistic because there are people with superpowers like force fields and magic guitars (we’re talking superheroes here), but it is engaging. It never feels campy. There are over the top superpowers and superhero action, but your care about the story and the characters.

Mr. Healy clearly loves superhero fiction. He has taken tried and true superhero tropes, made them his own, and crafted an excellent world, story, and characters. I highly recommend.”

A short story set in the not-so-distant future when utopia isn’t quite what it seems.

Ben was perfect.

His girlfriend Rachel was perfect.

His apartment was perfect.

In fact, everything in the world around him was perfect – thanks to the omnipresence of the beneficent Guardians.

So, why was it that Ben felt that he just wasn’t part of the world he inhabited? Why did the idea of ‘imperfect’ seem so attractive to him?

Could he change things so that at least a little imperfection existed in the impeccably managed society around him?

To find out what less-than-perfection meant, he’d need to match his wits against the titanic intellects of the Guardians and hope to win. It was a challenge he was determined to take on against all the odds.

Of course, even if Ben managed to achieve imperfection, would it yield the result he hoped for?

Having an introverted personality in today’s world is not so easy. It’s rather like being a librarian inside the Wall Street Stock Exchange during trading hours. The current trend in books on this subject is to explore the upside of introversion. And yet the downside has to be fully understood if its true gift and potential are to be unlocked.

In fact, introversion has a specific agenda, which I reveal in the first chapter. Yet, our ego’s own attempts to fulfill it are counterproductive and draw us into a private world of our own making. As the title suggests, “Being In Action” reveals how to resolve this dilemma in a way that honors our true nature. How the call of introversion may be answered is the main theme of this book.

Bio: Francis Keogh is a full time author who lives on the coast south of Sydney, Australia. His writing reflects many years of research and personal enquiry into the nature of the self and its fulfilment.

***New Adult Dark Erotic Novel***

Kidnapped. Taken to a private island.

I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely.

Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful—a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

My captor is an enigma. I don’t know who he is or why he took me. There is a darkness inside him—a darkness that scares me even as it draws me in.

My name is Nora Leston, and this is my story.
