by Glenn Fain
Mystery writer Roger McDermitt is in a rut until a local serial killer murders six men in six months. The police are convinced the serial killer is a woman, which fascinates Roger. He nicknames her “Tease”, and is determined to make her the central character in his next novel.
When Roger meets the mysterious Tess Galloway at his local bar, he believes he has finally met a woman he can fall in love with. He’s shocked at how perfect they are for each other. But he knows no one is ever what they seem, including himself.
Then the terrible dreams begin. Roger has always had the gift of channeling the dreams of people he was closest to, but he has never had violent and disturbing dreams like these before. They are from the viewpoint of Tease, and they terrify Roger with their brutality and rage. He can’t decide if he’s channeling the dreams of Tess or if he’s going crazy. But he must know.
This is the beginning to a novel about love, obsession and madness. Tease is part thriller, part love story, and part supernatural fiction. It will intrigue and haunt you from the first page to the last.
A Message from Glenn Fain:
Although “Tease” is the first novel I’m publishing, it’s actually the second novel I’ve written. I’ve written three other novels, all eventually to be published. I’m eager to have more people read my books. Books should be read, ya know?, rather than kept in the desk as some forbidden diary, a secret you really don’t want to share.

Never Set Them Again and achieve more than you ever dreamed possible
by Cary David Richards
FREE Oct. 16 to 20
The Shocking Truth About Goal Setting is that It Hardly Ever Works!
How to achieve more than you ever dreamed possible, even if you’ve set goals in the past and been unsuccessful
We’ve all had the experience of setting goals
Whether it’s a career goal, life goals or something very specific that you want, it’s easy to get fired up and begin striving to accomplish the goal in question. You make a plan and maybe even buy a goals book, then map out a strategy and set to work.
At some point, weeks or months later you look back and realize that your motivation has waned and your plan of action has stalled. You haven’t had any movement towards your goal in days or weeks.
Life has gotten in the way.
Our earnestly hoped for goals and objectives remain tantalizingly in the distance while we sit and wonder what happened. The problem is that even though we’ve read a goals book or even taken a goals course and we think we’ve learned how to set goals, the exact process of how to achieve those goals has somehow eluded us.
Why didn’t we get there? Why did it seem so logical and doable at first? Was it due to a lack of hard work or motivation? In most instances this is not the case. Then why do our most cherished life and career goals seem to elude us?
What you’ll learn:
Why rigid time frames actually hinder your ability to reach your goal.
How emotions and feelings affect your action plan.
The beauty of reducing your wants and desires down into bite sized chunks.
How to develop a plan of action that actually works.

Eat and Play Your Way to Better Health, a Leaner Physique, and a Happier Life!
by International award-winning &
bestselling author – Carol McCormick
WARNING! Reading this book and following these instructions may cause significant changes to your health and life. Adhering to the nutritional guidelines and participating in the suggested activities on a regular basis may cause long-term weight loss and feelings of well-being. Common side-effects may include, but are not limited to, increased amounts of energy, confidence, and clarity of mind; frequent feelings of joy, happiness, and fulfillment; frequent feelings of purpose, meaning, and significance; increased episodes of love, laughter and inspiration, followed by a sudden awareness that people want to be near you. Additional effects may also include loss of desire for inferior food and fewer bouts of depression, anxiety, and illness. If at any time these effects wane or do not fully occur, repeat the behaviors until the desired results become evident.
Carol McCormick is a certified personal trainer and a certified health coach through the American Council on Exercise, one of the top fitness organizations in the world. I’M HUNGRY! I’M BORED! was born out of her great concern for children and adults who struggle with weight-related personal and social issues. Overweight children are falling prey to a host of “adult” diseases, and many are taunted, teased, and bullied because of their appearance. Adults are not immune to this discrimination, as they are also “sized-up” when searching for a date or seeking a career. These painful emotions often cause both children and adults, not only to feel sad or upset, but also inferior and insecure. As these physical, emotional, and social problems intensify, feelings of unhappiness may also increase.
Habits instilled in your children now often follow them into their future. In helping them, you will be helping yourself, because what works for them will work for you too, if you need a nudge in this direction. I’M HUNGRY! I’M BORED! provides the blueprints needed to lay a strong foundation and create new behaviors that lead to better health, a leaner physique, and a happier life!

to Goal Setting

What is a Goal?
1. noun, the result or achievement toward which effort is directed; aim; end.
2. “A goal is a dream with a deadline.” ~Napoleon Hill
3. A promise you are making to yourself.
The Backsliders Guide to Goal Setting is a four phase process to help you live an absolutely extraordinary life. The four phases are:
- Get Clear
The Get Clear phase is all about dreaming, coming up with ideas, accomplishments, and projects you wish to complete. We will go over several exercises including gratitude, and defining your ‘ideal day.’ We will then chunk it all down into actual goals you can set for yourself. This phase could take a few hours to complete – all dependent on how far you want to take it.
The Organize phase is all about getting ready. This preparation phase involves collecting all your resources to see what you already have and what you are lacking in order complete a specific goal. We will look at time, money, people, and internal resources. This phase should also take a couple hours to complete.
The Action phase is all about taking the necessary steps to get you where you want to be. Taking massive, directed action with an absolute purpose! This is where your passions shine, your true colors show, and where you will be tested. You will see how constantly taking action brings about results.
The Lead phase is all about taking what you have learned and helping others. Now that you have completed a goal you set out for yourself, you become the catalyst to help others do the same. This phase lasts a lifetime.
This process will help you take your life, your business, your health, your finances, and your relationships to a higher level.

Over a century later, traces of the coins resurface, after a couple of kids stumble upon what appeared to be one, in a Southeast Texas creek.
News of the find reach Parks Leslie and Stan Atcher, treasure hunters and historians, always looking for their next big find, and long-time seekers of these coins. Parks and Stan’s interest proves to be an unexpected journey, tangled with blood history ties, new friendships and near-death experiences, calling for sacrifices no one could have predicted.
