Dark Stranger: The Dream: New and Lengthened 2017 Edition
Syssi's paranormal foresight lands her a job at Dr. Amanda Dokani's neuroscience lab, but it fails to predict the thrilling yet terrifying turn her life will take. Syssi has no clue that her boss is an immortal who'll drag her into a secret, millennia-old battle over humanity's future. Nor does she realize that the professor's imposing brother is the mysterious stranger who's been starring in her dreams.
Since the dawn of human civilization, two warring factions of near-immortals - the descendants of the gods of old - have been secretly shaping its destiny. Leading the clandestine battle from his luxurious L.A. high-rise, Kian is surrounded by his clan, yet alone. Descending from a single goddess, clan members are forbidden to each other. And as the only other immortals are their hated enemies, Kian and his kin have been long resigned to a lonely existence of fleeting trysts with human partners. That is, until his sister makes a game-changing discovery - a mortal seeress who she believes is a dormant carrier of their genes. Ever the realist, Kian is skeptical and refuses Amanda's plea to attempt Syssi's activation. But when his enemies learn of the Dormant's existence, he's forced to rush her to the safety of his keep. Inexorably drawn to Syssi, Kian wrestles with his conscience as he is tempted to explore her budding interest in the darker shades of sensuality.
At 82,000 words, Dark Stranger: The Dream is a full-length novel but it is not a standalone. Kian and Syssi's story is a three-book series. In book four, Dark Enemy Taken, a new couple takes the center stage. Follow the cast of intriguing characters as they fall in love while fighting for the survival of their family, and get swept away into the world of The Children of the Gods.
Heavy: An American Memoir
*Named a Best Book of 2018 by the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, NPR, Broadly, Buzzfeed (Nonfiction), The Undefeated, Library Journal (Biography/Memoirs), The Washington Post (Nonfiction), Southern Living (Southern), Entertainment Weekly, and The New York Times Critics*
In this powerful, provocative, and universally lauded memoirwinner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal and finalist for the Kirkus Prizegenre-bending essayist and novelist Kiese Laymon provocatively meditates on his trauma growing up as a black man, and in turn crafts an essential polemic against American moral rot (Entertainment Weekly).
In Heavy, Laymon writes eloquently and honestly about growing up a hard-headed black son to a complicated and brilliant black mother in Jackson, Mississippi. From his early experiences of sexual violence, to his suspension from college, to time in New York as a college professor, Laymon charts his complex relationship with his mother, grandmother, anorexia, obesity, sex, writing, and ultimately gambling. Heavy is a gorgeous, guttinggenerous (The New York Times) memoir that combines personal stories with piercing intellect to reflect both on the strife of American society and on Laymons experiences with abuse. By attempting to name secrets and lies he and his mother spent a lifetime avoiding, he asks us to confront the terrifying possibility that few in this nation actually know how to responsibly love, and even fewer want to live under the weight of actually becoming free.
A book for people who appreciated Roxane Gays memoir Hunger (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), Heavy is defiant yet vulnerable, an insightful, often comical exploration of weight, identity, art, friendship, and family through years of haunting implosions and long reverberations. You wont be able to put this memoir downIt is packed with reminders of how black dreams get skewed and deferred, yet are also pregnant with the possibility that a kind of redemption may lie in intimate grappling with black realities (The Atlantic).

Narcissistic Personality Disorder: Complete Guide on Narcissism and How to End It!: What Is Narcissism, How to Prevent It and Much More! (New 2017 Edition)
What is Narcissistic Personality Disorder?
How do I put and end to it?
These are just some of the questions we will explore in this guide! Whether you are dating a narcissist, think you might be one, or want to help a friend, this audiobook is for you. After listening to this comprehensive audiobook you will understand exactly what this disorder is and how you can prevent it or stop it. There is a lot to learn, and this audiobook makes it simple for beginners to understand this complicated disorder.
It has been found that narcissistic personality disorder dated back as far as the ancient Greek mythology. Narcissus, a beautiful young man who was proud of his looks, fell in love with himself by looking at his own reflection on the water. He was so captivated by his own face that he couldn't stop looking, but Narcissus later realized that it was his own image. He eventually lost his will to live and died from wasting.
This form of excessive love of oneself has been discussed by a number of scholars and philosophers. Before, this was merely known as hubris - a state of arrogance that is accompanied by being detached from the real world. It wasn't until later during the rise of psychology when this form of extreme narcissism was formally deemed as a disorder.
When this emotion of self-love becomes excessive to the point that it becomes harmful to others, in a way that compassion is no longer present, then this is a problem for one's family, friends, and others around.
Here is a preview of what you will learn:
- Learn about the history of narcissistic personality disorder.
- What is narcissistic personality disorder.
- Drug and alcohol abuse.
- Eating disorders.
- Issues with relationships.
- Identifying a narcissist.
- NPD and other mental disorders.
- Factors that lead to NPD.
- Treatment for NPD.
- Dealing with narcissism and NPD.
- Interacting with a narcissist.
- Helping someone with NPD.
- And much more!

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow
Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically acclaimed New York Times best seller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity's future and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.
Over the past century, humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but as Harari explains in his trademark style - thorough yet riveting - famine, plague, and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists, and criminals put together. The average American is 1,000 times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda.
What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet Earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams, and nightmares that will shape the 21st century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.
With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times best seller, Harari maps out our future.
