Whip-pan-smart, fleet and protean, David Seymour´s poems seem to contain the speed of the age. I love their ranginess and ambition, the way they rove through a here-and-now teeming with there-and-then, their speakers´ flights and turnings through the blizzard. This is a different world, and we live in it. (Paul Farley) ´´For Display Purposes Only´´ is fighting trim, and poem after poem is a knockout blow.´´ (National Post) ´´We are met at the front door of this book by an energized curiosity and a humane amusement. Worlds only notionally, minimally there become fully dimensioned, clearly edged under Seymour´s attention. David Seymour is a magician.´´ (Tim Lilburn) These poems pause for the spectacle - cloning technologies, super-slo-mo photography, narcotic cab rides - to describe a system of tripwires, pitfalls, and decoys that the notion of daily viewership entails. These poems are paeans to our facility for duplicity and self-deception, in which the act of living is like a movie we´re not in. David Seymour´s first collection, Inter Alia, was nominated for the Gerald Lampert Award. He works in the film industry. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nico Evers-Swindell.

What is a Golden Deed? We all of us enjoy a story of battle and adventure. Some of us delight in the anxiety and excitement with which we watch the various strange predicaments, hairbreadth escapes, and ingenious contrivances that are presented to us; and the mere imaginary dread of the dangers thus depicted, stirs our feelings and makes us feel eager and full of suspense. A Golden Deed must be something more than mere display of fearlessness. Grave and resolute fulfilment of duty is required to give it the true weight. For the true metal of a Golden Deed is self-devotion. Selfishness is the dross and alloy that gives the unsound ring to many an act that has been called glorious. And, on the other hand, it is not only the valor, which meets a thousand enemies upon the battlefield, or scales the walls in a forlorn hope, that is of true gold. It may be, but often it is, a mere greed of fame, fear of shame, or lust of plunder. No, it is the spirit that gives itself for others - the temper that for the sake of religion, of country, of duty, of kindred, nay, of pity even to a stranger, will dare all things, risk all things, endure all things, meet death in one moment, or wear life away in slow, persevering tendance and suffering. 1.

When Natalie Smythe moves to the small town of Bagley, Texas to follow her dreams and open a candy store, she has no intention to do anything other than work. Socializing is not on her calendar until the store is up and running. It doesn´t even cross her mind that the morning she opens, a man will come into the store whom she cannot say ´´no´´ to. Caleb McClain knows he´s next in line to marry, because his brothers have started the domino effect, and they´re falling one by one. The oldest two are married, and he´s third in line. He knows he can´t avoid it forever, but if he can just avoid meeting anyone new, he´s sure it will help. When he follows a sugar craving and checks out the new candy store in town, he keeps his eyes on the display and won´t even look at the woman behind the counter. When their eyes meet, he knows he´s done for. Will he be able to convince her that she´s the only woman for him? Or will he be the first McClain in generations to not marry? 1. Language: English.

Some heroes wear capes. Some prefer sensory sacks. Emmet Washington has never let the world define him, even though he, his boyfriend, Jeremey, and his friends aren´t considered ´´real´´ adults because of their disabilities. When the State of Iowa restructures its mental health system and puts the independent living facility where they live in jeopardy, Emmet refuses to be forced into substandard, privatized corporate care. With the help of Jeremey and their friends, he starts a local grassroots organization and fights every step of the way. In addition to navigating his boyfriend´s increased depression and anxiety, Emmet has to make his autistic tics acceptable to politicians and donors, and he wonders if they´re raising awareness or putting their disabilities on display. When their campaign attracts the attention of the opposition´s powerful corporate lobbyist, Emmet relies on his skill with calculations and predictions and trusts he can save the day - for himself, his friends, and everyone with disabilities. He only hopes there isn´t a variable in his formula he´s failed to foresee. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Iggy Toma.

All his life, Rand T’Ash has looked forward to meeting his HeartMate, with whom he could begin a family. Once a street tough, now a respected nobleman and artisan, he has crafted the perfect HeartGift, which, in the custom of the psychically gifted population of the planet Celta, is the way a man finds—and attracts—his wife… Danith Mallow is irresistibly drawn to the magnificent necklace on display in T’Ash’s shop, but she is wary of its creator, despite an overpowering attraction. In a world where everyone is defined by their psychic ability, Danith has little, placing her at the opposite end of the social spectrum from T’Ash. But T’Ash refuses to accept her rejection and sees it as a challenge instead. They are HeartMates, but can T’Ash persuade his beloved to accept her destiny by his side? 1. Language: English.

The audiobook is also a section found in my 3-part book titled: Wars Between Book Reviewers and Authors Why?, you might ask and maybe even in a mean-sounding voice ´´How Dare I write about such a touchy subject as Book Reviewing?” I would answer that I´m not daring to but rather I am being guided to do it. That unseen substance we might call ´´Literary Inspiration”, ´´The Guiding Hand of Inspirational Writing” or ´´I Got an Itch to Write Something”, is driving me and I can all but resist it. There are apparently readers out there who need this material to fill a void that can be satisfied by nothing else and I am called upon to fill them up. I am the gas station of words and they are the empty tanks needing the fuel of inspiration... (YES, there´s much more!!!)Here´s an example of what you´ll get in this power-packed instructional resource with over 2,780 words, on how to avoid those nasty book reviews! Introductions Why People Write Bad Book Reviews Even When They´re Not Mad at Anyone Avoid Bad Reviews by Writing a Threatening Introduction Format Your Book in Such a Way as to Stun Readers into Giving you Nothing but Good Reviews My ConclusionA note from Percy´s evil twin (James M. Lowrance): With these comedies being so different from my serious subject books, I assigned a pen name to them as well, being ´´Percyvelle Pennington the Third”. He seems more like the guy who wrote them, than I do. Percy is a snide type guy and he is arrogant; traits that I hopefully never display in real life! He does make his points known in his memoirs but in strangely comical ways. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James M. Lowrance.
