  • You can't keep two people who are meant to be together apart for long... Lennon Davis doesn't believe in much, but she does believe in the security of the number five. If she flicks the bedroom light switch five times, maybe her new LA school won't suck. But that doesn't feel right, so she flicks the switch again. And again. Ten more flicks of the switch and maybe her new stepfamily will accept her. Twenty-five more flicks and maybe she won't cause any more of her loved ones to die. Fifty more and then she can finally go to sleep. Kyler Benton witnesses this pattern of lights from the safety of his tree house in the yard next door. It is only there, hidden from the unwanted stares of his peers, that Kyler can fill his notebooks with lyrics that reveal the true scars of the boy behind the oversize hoodies and caustic humor. But Kyler finds that descriptions of blond hair, sad eyes, and tapping fingers are beginning to fill the pages of his notebooks. Lennon, the lonely girl next door his father has warned him about, infiltrates his mind. Even though he has enough to deal with without Lennon's rumored tragic past in his life, Kyler can't help but want to know the truth about his new muse.

  • Tim is a small wolf shifter, partially disabled, not good at confrontation, and very alone. Life isn't easy at a precinct where he's never been fully accepted. He spends far too much of his time trying not to overhear coworkers mocking him. His best friend (okay, pretty much his only friend) is a drug-addicted fox shifter. And Tim certainly knows better than to fall in love; that didn't work out so hot before. These days, he sticks to anonymous encounters. He doesn't believe in mates or true love, not for someone like him. But he's worked for the cops almost a decade now, and really, there's no reason at all why he should have to go through a stupid certification course. They didn't even have those when he started! Life takes an unexpected twist when one of his anonymous encounters turns out to be attending the same certification course. Levi is a big, sweet guy he'd never expected to see again. Tim doesn't want to let Levi see the flaws and cracks that anything more than a quick hookup would reveal. He certainly doesn't plan to spend any more time with the guy, much less get feelings for him... Length: 65,000 words Heat: somewhat low A "shifters and partners" novel (standalone)

  • "The Broken Pieces of Me" is my first writing project, and I pray that this book will help someone to turn the page from the issues of life that seems to weigh us all down. As I journey in ministry, I tend to look back at my past decisions, and I begin to beat myself down for my choices. But God continues to remind me that His grace is sufficient for my past and my present! He has already forgiven me and wiped my slate clean. All I have to do now is learn to forgive myself. We've all made some disgraceful mistakes, but once we repent, we must move forward in God's grace and continue striving for perfection. Our temporary choices were not meant to permanently destroy our lives. Yes, we will suffer a few setbacks or delays, but we should never allow our visions to come to a complete halt. We must keep advancing and striving for excellence. We're all predestined for greatness in the eyes of God. His grace is what keeps us! His grace is what leads us! His grace is what saves us!When I look back over my life, I think about the people who have poured into me. I think about those who have fought for me or those who have tested me. It was those experiences, good and bad, that allowed me to become who I am today. I vow to continue to invest in myself and take the necessary time to learn who I am. I will never again allow my broken pieces to have me too afraid to walk in God's appointed grace for me. Be Blessed!

  • ISBN : 1638379718
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Poetry
  • The paradoxical concepts of pain, power, triumph, and trauma that we experience through life's extraordinary journeys become the major pieces in the foundation of our whole being, and the main sources of who we are. From overwhelming struggles and challenges to unconditional joy and wondrous celebrations, Jodiann A. Morgan constructed the powerful and emotional poems in this collection as mirrors, not only in reflection of her mistakes and miracles, but to help others embrace their battles, discover their own identities, and gain a new understanding of God's love, sacrifice, and grace that guide, protect, and lead them to an eternal breakthrough. With divine empathy, each poem is deeply connected to who she is, but written to touch every broken heart, flooded mind, and silent warrior. Through God's eyes, the messes we indulge in are the clay He uses to mold us into beautiful models to be put on display in His museum of divine transformation to attract greatness for His glory. For every broken part of us that exists, we need our broken pieces to fit together to let His promise manifest in our lives.

  • An instant New York Times bestseller • A New York Times Notable Book of 2022 • A TIME Magazine Best Book of 2022 • One of The Washington Post's Best Books of 2022 • A Reese's Book Club Pick From the #1 bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere, comes the inspiring new novel about a mother’s unbreakable love in a world consumed by fear. “It’s impossible not to be moved.” —Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review “Riveting, tender, and timely.” —People, Book of the Week “Thought-provoking, heart-wrenching…I was so invested in the future of this mother and son, and I can’t wait to hear what you think of this deeply suspenseful story!” – Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club October ’22 Pick) Twelve-year-old Bird Gardner lives a quiet existence with his loving but broken father, a former linguist who now shelves books in a university library. His mother Margaret, a Chinese American poet, left the family when he was nine years old without a trace. Bird knows to not ask too many questions, stand out too much, or stray too far. For a decade, his family's life has been governed by laws written to preserve “American culture” in the wake of years of economic instability and violence. To keep the peace and restore prosperity, the authorities are now allowed to relocate children of dissidents, especially those of Asian origin, and libraries have been forced to remove books seen as unpatriotic. Bird has grown up disavowing his mother and her poems; he doesn’t know her work or what happened to her, and he knows he shouldn’t wonder. But when he receives a mysterious letter containing only a cryptic drawing, he is pulled into a quest to find her. His journey will take him back to the many folktales she poured into his head as a child, through the ranks of an underground network of librarians, into the lives of the children who have been taken, and finally to New York City, where a new act of defiance may be the beginning of much-needed change. Our Missing Hearts is an old story made new, of the ways supposedly civilized communities can ignore the most searing injustice. It’s a story about the power—and limitations—of art to create change, the lessons and legacies we pass on to our children, and how any of us can survive a broken world with our hearts intact.

  • Genre : Biography & Autobiography
  • From his earliest reading memories in wartime Britain through five decades of librarianship, eminent librarian and former ALA President Michael Gorman offers insights from his extraordinary career in this new memoir. Gorman relates his personal and professional journey in prose that is by turns charming, opinioned, and revealing. He made perhaps his most significant contribution to librarianship as editor of the 1978 Anglo- American Cataloguing Rules, a major development that receives detailed attention here. The debates and arguments that would shape professional practice for years to come are dramatically presented, with a vivid cast of characters including leading librarians from two continents. Broken Pieces, Gorman’s account of being on the front lines of many of the most important decisions made in librarianship during his career, is a timely and entertaining read.

She still wants him, but she's harboring a painful secret from their night together that she's not ready to reveal. Crossed signals, high-society whispers, and shame have kept Tina and Harris apart for years, but deep down, they're hungry for each other and eager to write their own rules. Can they let go of the past and find their way back to each other, or are the barriers between them too high and too strong?
