  • Tabloid reporter Sierra McIntyre wants a scoop when she interviews Ghost Hunter Guild boss John Fontana about the disappearances of retired, homeless hunters. She doesn’t want to trust the physically and psychically powerful man, but her intuition—and her dust bunny companion—give her the green light. To uncover the conspiracy within his own organization, Fontana proposes…marriage. And though it’s purely a business arrangement, there’s nothing pure about the attraction that sizzles between them.

  • Imagine hurricane winds over the Sahara Desert, preceded by a cavalry of tornadoes. Imagine dunes flattened, then resculpted. Then imagine all that at the bottom of the sea. A Category 4 hurricane has swept the west coast of Florida, creating havoc, changing lives, and reshaping the ocean bottom. Well-known reefs and wrecks have been covered—and new ones have emerged. From one such wreck, marine biologist Doc Ford and his friends make a chance discovery that will have a monumental effect—a cluster of mysterious objects that lead to an equally mysterious woman and her ancient, gray-gabled estate of a beach house. The woman weaves a haunting story of a loved one lost, and her chance to uncover the truth if Ford will help salvage the boat, named Dark Light, which sank without explanation in the hurricane of 1944. Intrigued, Ford agrees, and begins a chain of events that will change his life forever. For there are other things in that wreck as well, and other men who want them, men willing to commit terrible acts. And the woman herself—the woman is not what she seems. . . . Filled with passion and vivid, pungent prose and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Dark Light is a thriller of uncommon intensity.

  • Sometimes the worst monsters are where we least expected them. Still looking for answers to all those who disappeared in the Leftovers, Lyra, Dorian and their rogue team are drawn into a new mission: working with the Florida Bureau to investigate human trafficking in the Leftovers. This time they won’t be facing monsters or Immortals, but human criminals. Should be a piece of cake compared to facing down the Immortal Council. Right? Except that Lyra and the shadowy outfit luring teenagers in with promises of supernatural secrets might not be all talk. Kane hasn’t gotten any peace since the meld. Through their unexplainable mind connection, Roxy managed to rescue him from an unfamiliar plane, but his recovery only raises more questions. Why did he get drawn into the Pocket Space? What are these strange dreams he’s having? And why has it been so easy to get used to a certain brash yet beautiful human girl talking to him in his head? More than anything, he wants to return to the Pocket Space to help the children he couldn’t protect from mysterious foes. But first, he needs answers about something even more mysterious: his own past. As Kane and Roxy try to navigate their connection and Lara and Fallon race to save kidnapped children, their searches start to point toward the same place. These criminals might be more connected to them than they realize. And even ordinary humans might not be so ordinary anymore.

  • "I celebrated when vampires were declared extinct. Those monsters had preyed on humanity for millennia, committing senseless, brutal murders. Like the rest of my colleagues at the Occult Bureau, I looked forward to a world where we could all sleep at night--where constant cover-up jobs were no longer required to keep the public calm and unaware. But the end of vampires wasn't the end of our problems. It was only the beginning"--Publisher marketing.

  • How to awaken the Ureaus--the serpent power of spiritual transcendence within each of us--and connect to the superconscious of the universe • Reveals the biochemistry of how the body’s melanin provides the template for the subtle energy body or light body • Shows how embracing the dark light consciousness of the awakened Ureaus opens a portal to the sacred darkness of the superconscious • Provides illustrated instructions for meditation practices, breathing exercises, and yoga postures to safely awaken Ureaus/Kundalini energy Within each of us lies the potential to activate a personal connection to the superconscious. Called “Ureaus” in ancient Egyptian texts and “Kundalini” in ancient Hindu yoga traditions, our innate serpent power of spiritual transcendence inhabits the base of the spine in its dormant state. When awakened, it unfurls along the spinal column to the brain, connecting individual consciousness to the consciousness of the universe enfolded within the dark matter of space. At the root of creativity and spiritual genius across innumerable cultures and civilizations, this intelligent force reveals portals that enfold time, space, and the luminous matrix of reality itself. Combining physics, neuroscience, and biochemistry with ancient traditions from Africa and India, Edward Bruce Bynum, Ph.D., explores the ancient Egyptian science of the Ureaus and reveals how it is intimately connected to dark matter and to melanin, a light-sensitive, energy-conducting substance found in the brain, nervous system, and organs of all higher life-forms. He explains how the dark light of melanin serves as the biochemical infrastructure for the subtle energy body, just as dark matter, together with gravity, holds the galaxies and constellations together. With illustrated instructions, he shows how to safely awaken and stabilize the spiritual energy of the Ureaus through meditation practices, breathing exercises, and yoga postures as well as how to prepare the subtle body for transdimensional soul travel. By embracing the dark light of the shining serpent within, we overcome our collective fear of the vast living darkness without. By embracing the dark, we transcend reality to the dimension of light.

  • A Tale of Humans In a Universe of Ubiquitous Alien Life Intelligence, it turns out, is rare—on planetary surfaces. It thrives everywhere else, from the Oort-cloud fringes of star systems to the magma furnaces beneath planetary crusts. And among the most powerful of the galaxy's intelligences, there are profound differences of opinion about how to deal with surface life-forms such as human beings. For, untold light years from Earth, the powers that rule the universe have been, for millennia, plucking humans (and other intelligent beings) from Earth and forcibly resettling them in a number of star systems close to one another, leaving them to develop on their own. A few generations ago, a small cadre of humans from Earth's 21st century arrived in this "Second Sphere" on their own power—the first humans ever to do so. Their descendants have formed the "Cosmonaut" class that dominates Mingulay. Now, two hundred years later, Gregor Cairns and a small group of associates have rediscovered faster-than-light travel and traveled to the star system next door. They're determined to find more of the original, mysteriously long-lived cosmonauts. They want answers. And for those answers, they intend to interrogate the gods. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

In love with her best guy friend since the age of 14 and too crass and intimidating for most of the male population of Colorado Springs, both love and good sex were virtually a myth. And then there's magic. Freakin' magic. There's no way that legend could have a place in her less than exciting life. So why after twenty years of utter obscurity do her adopted parents hit her with the ton of bricks that is her true identity? And how the heck is she supposed to accept all this and instantly become what she was destined to be? Lucky for Gabs, sexy as sin Dorian is more than equipped to help her embrace these new revelations. And while everything about him feels oh so good, she soon learns that there's more behind his crystal blue eyes, chiseled body and exotic beauty. Something dark, menacing and downright unnatural. Yet Gabs is in way too deep to even try to turn away from him now.

  • As a guiding principle of Eastern art and design, Notan (a Japanese word meaning dark-light) focuses on the interaction between positive and negative space, a relationship embodied in the ancient symbolism of the Yang and the Yin. In composition, it recognizes the separate but equally important identity of both a shape and its background. Since their introduction in the West, the intriguing exercises associated with Notan have produced striking results in every branch of Western art and design. This book, by two American artists and teachers who made an intensive study of Notan, was the first basic book on the subject in the West, and it remains one of the definitive texts. Through a series of simple exercises, it places the extraordinary creative resources of Notan easily within the grasp of Western artists and designers. Clearly and concisely, the authors demonstrate Notan's practical applications in six problems of progressive difficulty — creative exercises that will fascinate artists and designers of every calling and level of expertise. Along with these exercises, the book includes many illustrations of the principle of Notan, among them images as diverse as a sculpture by David Smith, a Samoan tapa cloth, a Museum of Modern Art shopping bag, New England gravestone rubbings, Japanese wrapping paper, a painting by Robert Motherwell, a psychedelic poster, and a carved and dyed Nigerian calabash. Painters, sculptors, potters, jewelry, and textile designers, architects, and interior designers all will discover — or rediscover — in these pages an ancient principle of composition that can help them meet creative challenges with fresh new perspective.

Mercenaries and raiders have taken advantage of a frayed Alliance Star Fleet to terrorize the outer worlds and the ships who supply them. With a government handcuffed by politics and graft, there seemed little hope. Commando Inc, privately funded and non-beholden to a strained galactic government exists with only one mandate - protect and defend those beyond the reaches and resources of a fading Alliance government. From their secret asteroid headquarters, Mark Carson leads his team of adventurers aboard the sentient starship Pulsar to right the wrongs of a universe on the edge of war. Now, a shape shifting evil has arisen and with its army of genetic monstrosities, seeks nothing less than the destruction and subjugation of all life. With an alien enemy already planning their attack, can the crew of the Pulsar prevent the end of both sides and the slow death of what little remains?

Michael V DarkLight is known for writing vastly creative pieces that speak boundlessly to the heart, mind, and soul while using few words to do so, his use of surrealism to define ideas to perfect sense using concepts that shouldn't make any sense at all, and his ability to drastically change writing styles, from the majestically simple, to the beautifully intricate, from lovely light tones, to bittersweet dark tones, all while retaining a sense of spirituality and conviction.

    Unspoken Confessions

  • Publisher : N.a

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Poetry
  • Unspoken Confessions wrestles with the issues of sexual addiction, lust, dating (especially how men treat women), and purity. More than that, it is an attempt at honesty - we all struggle with flaws of our own and with receiving the grace of God. Unspoken Confessions is a call to find light in the darkness and to allow God to create a new heart in us as we seek to develop healthy relationships. Through poetry, prose, and photography, these are the unspoken confessions of a man, on behalf of men, for men and those who love us, have loved us, or will one day love us. This is an attempt at honesty. This is an attempt at hope. This is an attempt to find light in the darkness. ------------------------------------------------ "Deep and cutting at times, Vanderlaan takes us beyond the pain to where healing can be found. Unspoken Confessions is stunning in its clarity and depth." (BETH-ANNE WHITE) "Dark and refreshing. I don't read poetry as a rule, but in this case I'm glad I made an exception." (MATTHEW J. LUCIO) "Thoughtful and artistic, but also packs a punch! This isn't the stuff you read on greeting cards." (JESSICA M. SHIMER) "Deathly honest!" (JASON MILLER) "Each poem is genuine and open, leaving no doubt in your mind that what you've just read is from the heart. This book is a calling to a higher standard and a better life - for both men and women." (KRISTIN THOMAS) "Candid and honest about what men struggle with, the temptations they have, and the desire to overcome." (AMBER HILL)
