“The Kushmaker” by Kenneth Anesko Is A Mix Of Humor With Military Men And Their Mishaps.
Author, Kenneth Anesko is pleased to announce the promotion of his novel, The Kushmaker. Anesko mixes humor with his military experiences to create a funny story about military men and their mishaps.
Bored but resourceful sailors are all but stranded on an obscure South Pacific island with no means of recreation except for what they invent on their own – an illegal still, hidden saloon and bordello, etc. There is drinking, scheming and romance and a lingering feud between the ship’s captain and his superior, a pompous admiral. And what does the Kushmaker have up his sleeve? What is he hiding? It’s a fun story with no moral or messages. Anyone who enjoys humor will like this book.
Anesko says, “The stories in the book are from experiences I’ve seen or heard about, while others were invented.” After receiving positive feedback from those who have read the book, Anesko is currently working on a sequel.
The Kushmaker is available in both print and ebook format and Amazon.com.

“Lulu’s Cafe” by T. I. Lowe interlaces human failures and sheds light on the paths that lead out of them.
“Some scars are too deep to ever heal,” Leah Gabriella Allen whispered in hushed anguish.
The orphaned young woman knows all too well about scars…a thick burn spanning her left palm…a deep rigid scar adorning her right hip…a scar etched across her bottom lip…There were countless more, exposed as well as hidden deep within.
After years of foster and group home instability, Gabriella naively falls in the thorny arms of the abusive Brent Sadler. The constant bruise of cruelty is ever present in their ten years of marriage – beatings that riddle her body and then being locked away in a closet when Brent grows weary of looking at the damage.
One last momentous beating ends with two deaths and changes Gabriella’s life forever. She stumbles away within an inch of her own life and begins a journey to an unexpected southern home which is none other than Lulu’s Café, where she tries to mend her severed spirit.

“ACTS OF BALANCE” by Nancy Means Wright is a Chapbook of Poems by Nancy Means Wright, with cover art by Raymond Hudson.
Acts of Balance is a chapbook of poems alternating the voices of 18th-century Mary Wollstonecraft and 20th-century Vermont farm-poet Fay Hubbard. “Moving, funny, wry–sometimes bottomlessly sad–yet pure joy in all of its definitions.” (JC Ellefson, author of Foreign Tales of Exemplum and Woe)
“Wright’s sure narrative voice keeps us riveted to the page.” (Barbara Crooker, author of Ordinary Life, Line Dance, More, Gold)
Order: Finishing Line Press, POBox 1626, Georgetown, KY, 40324. $14
Like a conversation across two continents and centuries, the poems in Acts of Balance tell the stories of an 18th-century English writer and a 20th-century Vermonter who must navigate the waters that the former first roiled. Mary Wollstonecraft kidnaps her sister from a brutal husband; Fay Hubbard packs up her books and leaves her marriage… And so their histories unfurl, both women battling the forces aligned against them and searching for the release that Wright, in a lovely concrete poem shaped like a breast, describes as ‘lean (ing)/ into the wind/ until I am/ wind.’ This book is an act of balance unlike any other. — Sue More >
“Human Nervous System: Early Programming and Behavioural Integration” by Gerald Nsugbe is a multi-faceted, multi-layered book on the human nervous system.
What merely began as an enquiry into Irritable Bowel Syndrome ended in the author identifying at least four factors which underlie psychosomatic, emotional and stress-related diseases and disorders, namely: the nervous system, pregnancy, childbirth and “libido-related” mutations and polymorphisms of genes.
The foundations of the book are laid in an introductory first chapter which gives a brief description of the human nervous system and some of the processes associated with pregnancy and childbirth. In the second chapter, which sets the tone for the succeeding ones, the author boldly asserts that human nerve cells oscillate at various frequencies (delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma) precisely because they are taught to do so during pregnancy and childbirth. From this basic premise which is illustrated with a series of ten diagrams, he proceeds in the third chapter to construct a paradigm of “libido-related” polymorphisms and mutations of genes which explains the origin of a whole host of diseases and disorders closely associated with the nervous system, including: stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia and cancer, to More >

The History of Eritrea Tells of Heroic Struggle, Constant Betrayal, Abiding Hope in “Eritrea at a Crossroads: A Narrative of Triumph, Betrayal and Hope” by Andebrhan Welde Giorgis.
Eritrea at a Crossroads: A Narrative of Triumph, Betrayal and Hope outlines the making of modern Eritrea in East Africa via the colonial system and its long journey to self-determination. The country’s development is complicated by constant external intervention impacting the evolution of its modern history. Contemporary Eritrea’s is a story of heroic triumph in struggle, of cruel betrayal of the original objectives and ethos of the war of national liberation, and of abysmal failure in independence. The book traces the evolution of the use of force to enforce conformity of thought during and after the war, in violation of the rule of law, basic civil liberties, and human rights.
The book situates Eritrea’s record in nation building, state construction and economic development in the postcolonial African setting. It depicts the fragility, and failure to deliver, of the prototype African state. Further, it portrays the present predicament of the Eritrean people, even as it decries the betrayal of the ideals More >
