The Stories We Tell: Every Piece of Your Story Matters

“Readers will be inspired by Gaines’ desire to find strength in
self-discovery.” —Publishers WeeklyJoanna Gaines invites us on an authentic
and vulnerable journey into her story, a story of doubt and belief, shame
and acceptance; a journey from insecurity to self-discovery, and finding
truth on the other side of lies.Star of Fixer Upper and New York Times
bestselling author, Joanna grew up in a multiracial family, the product of
a unique and beautiful love story between her Korean mother and her
American father. Experiencing regular teasing as a child because of what
made her different, it wasn’t until later in life that she started to see
those differences as the most beautiful part of her story.From stories that
brought shame and her soul’s deepest insecurities to the page to stories
about healing and hope and having just a little bit more fun, join Joanna
as she journeys through the years of becoming a wife, mother of five, and
business owner—looking back to mend what’s broken and gain clarity in
places that are cloudy so she can look forward with grateful and certain
eyes, believing that every chapter has its purpose. The Stories We Tell
reminds us that every piece of our story matters to who we are today and
who we’ll become tomorrow.”This book is not an autobiography. I still have
too much to learn and discover about myself, and I feel as though I am only
halfway there. This book also is not a how-to, because I certainly don’t
have all the answers. What I hope this book is for you is an invitation to
come as you are. To join me, with a vulnerable and open heart, as we
connect the chapters of our life stories, and figure out where we go next,
learning to move forward from within.The only way to break free was to
rewrite my story. Because something would happen every time my pen stopped:
it was like my soul was coming back to my body. Like the deepest parts of
me that got knocked around and drowned out by all the crap I let the world
convince me about who I was came back to the surface. And what was left was
only what was real and true. I was, finally, standing in the fullness of my
story. I felt hopeful. I felt full. Our story may crack us open, but it
also pieces us back together. I’m grateful to have found truth on the other
side of lies. Vulnerability on the other side of fear. Empathy on the other
side of pain. This is how I know that every season has a purpose, and that
holding, even when it leads to letting go, is what clues us into the bigger
story being told.”—Joanna Gaines Read more

is the one she spent her life planning to kill. The truth about Sera’s plan
is out, shattering the fragile trust forged between her and Nyktos.
Surrounded by those distrustful of her, all Sera has is her duty. She will
do anything to end Kolis, the false King of Gods, and his tyrannical rule
of Iliseeum, thus stopping the threat he poses to the mortal realm. Nyktos
has a plan, though, and as they work together, the last thing they need is
the undeniable, scorching passion that continues to ignite between them.
Sera cannot afford to fall for the tortured Primal, not when a life no
longer bound to a destiny she never wanted is more attainable than ever.
But memories of their shared pleasure and unrivaled desire are a siren’s
call impossible to resist. And as Sera begins to realize that she wants to
be more than a Consort in name only, the danger surrounding them
intensifies. The attacks on the Shadowlands are increasing, and when Kolis
summons them to Court, a whole new risk becomes apparent. The Primal power
of Life is growing inside her, pushing her closer to the end of her
Culling. And without Nyktos’s love—an emotion he’s incapable of feeling—she
won’t survive her Ascension. That is if she even makes it to her Ascension
and Kolis doesn’t get to her first. Because time is running out. For both
her and the realms. Read more

Shattered

When a sassy psychologist meets a gruff FBI agent, they team up to try and solve the worst serial murders in decades – but even with all their talent combined they may be outmatched.

Dr. Percy Shatter is the best forensic, behavioral, and clinical psychologist around, which probably says more about her than she ever could herself. She’s afraid of almost nothing in the real world, especially after personally interviewing just about every living serial killer and studying all the rest.

Even though he’s a foot taller than her, Percy stands her ground with Riley Rankin, toe-to-toe, when she meets him. He’s in the Violent Crimes unit of the Criminal Investigative Division with the FBI, and he’s got a fantastic solve rate. He’s taken down monsters so terrifying their existence never made it into public knowledge. He’s a star Special Agent because he follows the rules as close to the letter as anyone can. That is…until he meets Percy, who pushes his buttons. Suddenly he misses his old murder scenes with just blood and not so many metaphors.

Together Dr. Percy Shatter and Special Agent Riley Rankin are forced into a partnership after several brutally mutilated bodies, resembling the work of a notorious serial killer, are found. More concerning, the dead victims are found states apart at the same time – meaning they’re searching for more than one copycat. The mimicked serial killer has been in prison for years, and he’s not helping whoever’s doing this, so Percy and Riley are left at a loss. In the incredible stress of the situation, both partners end up at each other’s throats. Percy tries to solve her woes at the bottom of a bottle and Riley shuts down. All the while, there are killers out there planning their next elaborate and violent murders.

Can Riley help Percy wrangle her inner demons long enough to chase down the psychotic followers

Come On, Man!: The Truth About Joe Biden’s Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Presidency

NATIONAL BESTSELLEROpen borders, record inflation, and skyrocketing
crime—Joe Biden’s first term is one of the most craptastic in American
history. But on Planet Brandon, it’s all going according to plan . . .He
received 81 million votes. His party controlled the House and the Senate.
He took office with a nearly 60 percent approval rating. His first month
saw the economy recovering nicely and the new COVID-19 vaccines being
distributed around the country. And, in his words, he had the awesome power
to mobilize “truinernashabada pressure.”And yet, with all that and more,
Joe Biden’s first term has been a spectacular failure. COVID roared back.
The withdrawal from Afghanistan left thirteen U.S. service members dead and
hundreds of Americans stranded as Afghans fell from airplanes. Sixteen
American cities set homicide records. More than 2.3 million illegal
immigrants entered the country. Inflation reached forty-year highs. And
Russia invaded Ukraine. Even the Democrats are so embarrassed, they won’t
invite Biden to join them on the campaign trail for the midterms. Gah.But
is this hot mess, dumpster fire of a record only because Biden lost
whatever fastball he had and is perpetually incompetent? In Come On, Man!,
Joe Concha reminds us what’s really going on in the White House. Though
Biden may seem like a doddering idiot, stumbling from one mistake to the
next, his blunders always hew closely to progressive dreams for American
policy. Dreams like saving the planet by attacking Elon Musk and
strengthening the middle class by making gas prices higher than Hunter
Biden in a motel room. Come On, Man! shows the real reason why we’re
here—no malarkey, guaranteed! Read more

The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture

The instant New York Times bestsellerBy the acclaimed author of In the
Realm of Hungry Ghosts, a groundbreaking investigation into the causes of
illness, a bracing critique of how our society breeds disease, and a
pathway to health and healing.In this revolutionary book, renowned
physician Gabor Maté eloquently dissects how in Western countries that
pride themselves on their healthcare systems, chronic illness and general
ill health are on the rise. Nearly 70 percent of Americans are on at least
one prescription drug; more than half take two. In Canada, every fifth
person has high blood pressure. In Europe, hypertension is diagnosed in
more than 30 percent of the population. And everywhere, adolescent mental
illness is on the rise. So what is really “normal” when it comes to
health?Over four decades of clinical experience, Maté has come to recognize
the prevailing understanding of “normal” as false, neglecting the roles
that trauma and stress, and the pressures of modern-day living, exert on
our bodies and our minds at the expense of good health. For all our
expertise and technological sophistication, Western medicine often fails to
treat the whole person, ignoring how today’s culture stresses the body,
burdens the immune system, and undermines emotional balance. Now Maté
brings his perspective to the great untangling of common myths about what
makes us sick, connects the dots between the maladies of individuals and
the declining soundness of society—and offers a compassionate guide for
health and healing. Cowritten with his son Daniel, The Myth Of Normal is
Maté’s most ambitious and urgent book yet. Read more
