The Black Belt Book of Life - Secrets of a Martial Arts Master by Richard Andrew King

Martial Arts is life. There is nothing in martial arts training that does not have an application to our day-to-day living.

Out of the Shadows - The Life and Works of Mary de Morgan by Marilyn Pemberton

I first “discovered” Mary De Morgan when I was doing a PhD on “Glimpses of Utopia and Dystopia in Victorian Fairylands” and read her name a few times in academic books on fairy tales. I searched for her fairy tales and found enough to include in my thesis but I became quite fascinated with this woman and once I had finished my PhD I decided to find out as much about her as possible and [...]

Hidden Gardens of Japan 日本の秘庭 by John Lander

Hidden Gardens of Japan 日本の秘庭 explores unseen and unsung gardens throughout Japan, those that have been overlooked by tourist hordes and still retain their original calm and peacefulness without the mobs. These gardens are not as famous as their cousins for different reasons: the temple priest may simply be uninterested in their sanctuary becoming a tourist attraction, or their location [...]

Silver and the Castlestone House Mystery by Ray Boydstun

This is a book I started to write at 8 years old in 1977 after being inspired by an author and a picture of a girl on horseback swiftly escaping a frightening house. I finished it at 12 years old. It was originally about an 11-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy who lived in the forests of Texas and got around on horseback. When I found the manuscript in 2003 I reworked it into two 14-year-old [...]

As we get older, it seems that time passes much quicker than it did when we were younger. For the protagonist in this story, these questions are all too real. Jack Grant is staring into the abyss. His past, those events from so long ago, have come back. [...]

Song of the Nightingale - a tale of two castrati by Marilyn Pemberton

The seed for what became my second historical novel, Song of the Nightingale, came about four years ago, when I listened to a discussion on Radio 3 about Alessandro Moreschi, the only castrato ever to have been recorded. It was mentioned, almost in passing, that young boys in 17th and 18th-century Italy were often handed over to conservatoires by their poverty stricken parents, where they would [...]

Get It Done - The Simple Process for Finding Harmony by Destroying Your To-Do List by Belinda Goodrich

As a productivity "expert", I was originally writing the book, Get It Done, to provide readers with my hacks - my tips and tricks as to how I maximized my productivity. However, I realized that doing so would be incredibly superficial. I wanted to go deeper into the minds and lives of my readers and challenge the real obstacles to productivity. So many people that I talk with say "I'd be fine [...]

Reviving Jim Morrison by George Thomas Clark

I became a fan of Jim Morrison and The Doors soon after the launch of their eponymous first album and their still-legendary hit "Light My Fire." Morrison as the lead singer stood in the spotlight not only on stage but in the media that featured his stunning good looks, articulate interviews and philosophical discussions, and, ominously, his wild drunkenness and substance abuse. People who knew or [...]

Last Wish or, the ravings of a mad woman by Ray Boydstun

It is a book of free verse "love" poetry taken from 50-60% of my surviving journal notes about this subject matter of a raving mad woman in 1990-1992. The story is told by the perpetrator rather than her victim as most poetry I read seems to be in the victim's voice. I love to invert things like that. It makes it more interesting in this case. There are two main characters. One is a beautiful [...]
