BOOK DESCRIPTION PAGE::
In the tradition of The Glass Castle and Angela’s Ashes comes the most unforgettable memoir you’ll read this year!
“What did it mean to be the Tank Man’s son? To grow up overwhelmed by my father’s presence and personality? It was as if I didn’t exist, as if I was just something else for my father to crush.”
So begins the haunting memoir of Mark Bouman as he recounts the events of his childhood at the hands of his larger-than-life, Neo-Nazi father in brilliant, startling detail. From adventure-filled days complete with real-life war games, artillery fire, and tank races to terror-filled nights marked by vicious tirades, brutal beatings, and psychological torture, Mark paints a chilling portrait of family life that is at once whimsical and horrific—all building to a shocking climax that challenges even the broadest boundaries of love and forgiveness.
An epic tale of redemption and reconciliation, The Tank Man’s Son is a literary tour de force that is sure to become an instant classic.

They're out! Here are the June 2016 Samsung Book Deals selections, from the Kindle store (in the order in which Amazon presented them). I researched them a bit, to identify series each belongs to (if any) and its genre(s).
- The Sensory Deception by Ransom Stephens
Genre(s): Mystery & Thriller, Suspense, Fantasy
Current Kindle Price: $4.99Quote:
“I can’t believe I ate a seal. And really enjoyed it.”
Moments after venture capitalist Gloria Baradaran experiences what it’s like to be a polar bear—really be a polar bear—she knows she’s found something revolutionary. Farley Rutherford and his team—migraine-tortured neurologist “Chopper” Vittori and über-geek engineer Ringo Hayes—have created sensory saturation, a virtual reality system that drops users into the psyches of endangered animals as they fight for survival, and they believe the profound experience could turn the indifferent masses into avid environmentalists.
Ringo’s hardware is ready to go, but the pressures to get the system off the ground are immense. The money-men want more bang for their buck, and that includes bigger, more dangerous animals, and—more than anything—the ability to turn the machines into profitable games. But to Farely and his team, this is anything but a game. To some, in fact, this is a cause they’d kill for…
The Sensory Deception is a mind-blowing, globe-trotting ride that will take readers from cut-throat Silicon Valley boardrooms to the pirate ships off the Somali coast to the devastated rain forests of the Amazon all to ask the question: What is a human life worth compared to that of an entire planet?

Current Kindle Price: $4.99Quote:
A violent drunk with a broken heart, Mackie looks for love in all the wrong places. When two hit men catch him with his pants down, he barely makes it out alive. Worse still, his ex-gangster uncle, Rab, has vanished, leaving him an empty house and a dead dog.
Reluctant PI Sam Ireland is hired by hotshot lawyers to track Rab but is getting nothing except blank stares and slammed doors. As she scours the dive bars, the dregs of Glasgow start to take notice.
DI Andy Lambert is a cop in the middle of an endless shift. A body washes up, and the city seems to shiver in fear; looks like it’s up to Lambert to clean up after the lowlifes again.
As a rampaging Mackie hunts his uncle, the scum of the city come out to play. And they play dirty. It seems that everyone has either a dark secret or a death wish. In Mackie’s case, it might just be both.

An airplane plunges into an icy river and the world witnesses the dramatic rescue. Then, life after the Miracle on the Hudson landing puts three families on another crash course…with their own fragile humanity.
Airplane passenger Deborah DeWitt-Goldman knows her survival means one last chance to start the family she so badly desires—no matter the cost to her marriage. Preacher’s wife Brett Stevens witnesses the event from a ferry, burdened by a secret that could destroy her family. And while twelve-year-old Robby Palmer’s desperate parents struggle to reach through the fog of his autism, the boy discovers a deep connection to the birds responsible for the crash.
Now, all of them must navigate the crosscurrents of the consequences of their decisions…and when their paths collide a second time, another miracle just might happen.

About the story:
By now Abbie Hoyt should be used to not fitting in. She hasn’t since she got pregnant at fifteen. But five years later, as her son begins kindergarten, Abbie wrestles anew with where she does—and doesn’t—belong. It’s not with her old high school friends, who are partying their way through college. Or with the other mothers at Owen’s school. They look at her like she carries some kind of disease. Abbie’s not even sure she fits into her sister’s life now that Skylar is getting married.
When wedding festivities throw Abbie back into the company of her ex-boyfriend, Chris Ross, the questions only get worse. Maybe Chris still loves her like she loves him, but what college-age guy wants to be saddled with a five-year-old? And how selfish would she be to ask that of him?
Abbie is used to the world throwing stones—she knows how to protect herself. But can she figure out how to open up and trust again before she throws away a chance at happiness…for good?

WISHING ON A STAR
Jody Lynn Nye and Angelina Adams
“Innovative take on the well-loved theme of fairies and dangerous wishes.”
Pop goddess Selane has made some bad choices in her life on her road to success. All of her past connections have dropped her and she’s desperately trying to get them (and her reputation) back.
While running a charity telethon for a debilitating children’s disease, Selane discovers a remarkable girl during a broadcast – a real genie – and suddenly the solution to all of her problems is standing right in front of her.
But finding a genie is one thing…making wishes that count, is something else—particularly when the genie is a clueless teenager from California.
Maybe Ray, a fairy godmother, and the local 26-3 chapter of The Fairy Godmothers’ Union can help.
Angelina Adams’ companion piece follows the young genie, Vickie, as she travels to New Mexico. On her journey, a whole new host of characters befriend her, including Raj Chandra, a senior genie in the Demons, Djinni and Efreets Guild, and Indira, whose jealousy is bound to cause even more prob¬lems for the teenage wish granter.
Podcast | Jill Williamson - The Blood of Kings Trilogy - free podcast series for book 1 (By Darkness Hid) and book 2 (To Darkness Fled)
For a few years, I recorded a serial podcast of the Blood of Kings trilogy that anyone could listen to free online or subscribe via email, podcasts, or iTunes. I posted one chapter a week on Friday afternoons, just in time for the weekend.
It was a fun way to reach new readers (listeners) and to post content on my blog.
It became too time consuming to keep up with, though, so I stopped after book two. But you can still listen to all of book one or book two by clicking on the book titles below to download old chapters.

Character Building Thought Power
Unabridged EditionRunning Time
Download the personal growth classic Character Building Thought Power. Ralph Waldo Trine was one of the early philosophers of the New Thought Movement and he published this book in 1900. In the book Trine attempts to show us how we can overcome our bad habits and develop new positive habits by harnessing the power of our thoughts. This book continues to be widely read and it is as valid today as it was when it was first written. It is well narrated by our very own Seth Anderson. The audio book has a running time of 45 Min. and is available on MP3 and bookmarkable MPEG-4 download.
This book describes a method whereby old, undesirable, earth-binding habits can be broken, and new, desirable, heaven lifting habits can be acquired, a method whereby life in part or in its totality can be changed, provided one is sufficiently in earnest to know and, knowing it, to apply the law. The audiobook version is an unabridged narration of the book.
