Featured Book - Our Promised Land by Michael T. Darkow

promised.jpgOne father. Two brothers. Two great religions. One mutually hallowed patch of ground. For centuries both have called it home. Now they bitterly contest whose nation it shall be.

Part history, part fiction, Our Promised Land challenges the reader to walk this long sad journey in the shoes of both sides. The characters are gut wrenchingly real, the events too tragic to bear, precisely because they are as historical as they are fictional. Can there ever be peace by any other path, except to admit the humanity of both sides, each finally granting the other this appropriate and proper dignity?

Our Promised Land compels the reader to face the unspeakable monstrousness of the violence, its very human perpetrators on both sides. Yet it refuses to deny the humanity of either.

Our Promised Land begs for that far better world we of every race, every nation, every religion, and every ideology hope, dream, and yearn, the one that finally and at long and terrible last is expressive of our intelligence, our dignity, and our nobility, no longer our worst instincts.

Can it ever be "the" Promised Land for either side, except that intelligence, dignity, and nobility confess, it cannot be only one side's, but it has always been both sides', Our Promised Land?

Featured Book - The Post Debutante:  Nothing Wakes Up a Debutante Like a Murder Charge by Herman Franck, Esq.

debutante.jpgNothing wakes up a debutante like a murder charge.

Nancy Sheridon is a high society San Francisco woman whose perfect wedding plans fall apart, as does she, when her fiancee falls in love with a newly arrived prima ballerina of the San Francisco Ballet.

Later, the ballerina is found dead, apparently at the hands of her fiance, George Anton. After DNA evidence exonerates George and points the police to Nancy, she is charged with the murder. She learns the hard lessons of the loneliness of injustice, and how injustices can challenge all trusts, even the trust between parent and child.

She also learns a lesson she didn’t know she already knew, that what is lovely and wealthy on the outside is not necessarily lovely and wealthy on the inside.

Featured Book - The Nobel Prizener by Herman Franck, Esq.

nobel.jpg“Karl, its not what you think, he raped me.”

Would these words destroy the amazing career of a genius Hispanic economist known as John Carver, formerly named Julio Heinrich Romero? Would Gloria, who would never imagine that she would have to go through with an entire rape trial, ever come clean and admit she lied? Would a prosecutor, who learns half way into this case that there are some major discrepancies between what Gloria says and what actually happened, choose to go to the side of truth, or the side of winning at all costs? And would an American jury ever believe in a million years that a woman would lie about a charge of rape, and that a prosecutor would knowingly put on a fraudulent case?

The Nobel Prizener is a story of American courtroom injustice, and of an unstoppable genius that continued in his path to save the world.

Featured Book - It Simply Must Be Said:  A View of American Public Education from the Trenches of Teaching by Hank Warren

teaching.jpg

 With the U.S. Department of Education’s current “Race to the Top” initiative, the clamor for “educational reform” has once again leapt into the national spotlight. However, despite many years of federal, state, and local legislative mandates and school reform initiatives, remarkably few substantive changes have occurred within the standard public school classroom. Classes of 25 students, seated at desks, in rows, in rooms that
are often too small, under the direction of an individual teacher, continue to be the norm. Here in the 21st century, when students have instantaneous access to an entire world of information at the touch of a computer keypad, the educational bureaucracy perpetuates a classroom structure that is virtually identical to the one used by Nathan Hale––as if our standard text was still McGuffey's reader. The time for an honest re-examination of failed "outside-in/top down" educational reform policies is beyond urgent. We must shift our focus to the requisites of those who do the actual educating in America: Teachers!

Having endured the ups and downs of 34 years in the classroom, Hank Warren is passionate about the "calling" of teaching. "It Simply Must Be Said" offers a poignant, insightful, and highly entertaining prescription for REAL school reform.

Featured Book - Victor and the Sun Orb by Amy Nielsen

victor.jpgVictor, a sun fairy prince of Solandia, should enjoy a carefree life. But from an early age, he finds himself very busy. He learns complex magic and martial arts. He's even taught how to live in a human world. That's because his parents, King Godfred and Queen Magenta, know about a mortality spell that was cast on their son on the very day of his baptism. A dark, hooded figure with eyes that burn like coal is to blame. Victor's parents know that on his thirteenth birthday, their beloved son will be forced to leave Solandia and live with humans, perhaps never to return. To find an antidote to the spell cast upon him as an infant, Victor must retrieve the mysterious sun orb, a source of magical power now in the hands of the dark, hooded figure. As he sets upon his quest, a war between the forces of light and darkness erupts. Good fairies wage battles with bad fairies, even as the power in their wands fades. Enter a world of magic, and join the fairy prince as he fights for family, love, and friendhip in Victor and the sun Orb.
