Themis is a burnout painter who stumbles on a crime scene. Ali, one of his black neighbours, is brutally stabbed to death in an alley in Thessaloniki. Themis spots two Neo-Nazis lurking nearby and then it hits him: inspiration courses through him and he creates a masterpiece. Themis craves inspiration as much as the truth though…. But is inspiration worth dying for?

What they’re saying about it:

I was pulled into the story and in the end I wished to have more. The action in this book was so good and just enough for me to have a small adrenaline rush.

I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars because although it was very well written and the depth of development was good, I personally am not a massive fan of violence in books. However, I would recommend this read and believe that it is a brilliant look into the human psyche and also a fast paced, action packed story.

Pete Rattigan is a frustrated young newspaper journalist caught up in uncertainty of the post-graduate “real world”. One night, one seemingly minor encounter sparks a philosophical journey which leads him to discover that in the most beautiful or even cruel moments of life, the power of friendship explains the power of the universe. And that perhaps there is no such thing as chance. With force, humor and sensitivity Damon Ferrell Marbut presents his debut, Awake in the Mad World, which frees its audience to believe again in the wildness of the young American heart, how it beats just to prove that it will always survive and succeed on its own terms.

Homeschoolers understand that a solid high school education involves  more than just the standard high school courses.  Yes, it is true that  mastering science, math, and literature is important for homeschoolers – and vitally important if college lies ahead.  But equally important are those subjects that the student is passionate about,  subjects that  they will study for hours on end, “just for the fun of it.”

This  delight directed learning is the true “secret sauce” of a great  homeschool education.  It will help your student stand out in a crowd of college applicants.  It can launch a career in business, or industry,  or the Arts.  It can lead to life-changing internships and real world  work experience.  It can open doors not just to college, but to life!

What are these delight directed topics?  How can you recognize them?  How  can you help your student discover them?  How can they be captured and  reflected on your student’s educational records?  These questions and  more are answered in “Delight Directed Learning,” the second book in Lee Binz’s brand new series, Coffee Break Books.   The first book in this  series, “Planning High School Courses,” describes the traditional high  school courses that every homeschool student who is leaning toward  college should cover.  This companion volume captures the other  components of a solid homeschool education, the extra, sometimes  non-traditional, subjects that make your child unique!

Designed  especially for parents who don’t want to spend hours and hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school, this series combines Lee’s  practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest  information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite  coffee shop!  Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable,  each book in the series will give parents the tools they need to tackle  the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.

Lee Binz, The HomeScholar, understands what it takes to graduate homeschool students who are fully prepared for college and for life.  Lee’s  practical advice and organized presentations have helped thousands of  homeschool parents muster the courage to complete their homeschooling  journey. She is both reassuring and empowering, and will give you the  knowledge you need to successfully graduate your high school student,  and have confidence that they are ready to take on the world.

Review from Amazon: It’s a zombie story without a zombie in sight.  It’s set three hundred  years in the future or maybe it’s right now.  Damned if I know.  What I  do know is this is one hell of a cool ride.  It starts pretty quickly  and never loses momentum.  The two main characters are easy to root for  and the main villain is very easy to hate.  There are no shades of gray  (fifty or otherwise) in this world Cronan has created.  You’re on one  side or the other and the line between the two is very clearly  dilineated.  There’s a very Alan Moore-esque feel to this and it kept me turning the pages.  This deserves your time.
