A Double Cross Deserves a Double Cross in the High Seas Thriller “The Eight of Spades: A Law Unto Themselves” by Benjamin J. West.
The British government bet that it could control eight people into following orders. It was wrong.
Struggling with a multitude of political failings, the officials secretly remove eight citizens from their homes and blackmail them into helping the government. Handpicked based on skills and beliefs, the group is trained to be the finest fighters on land, sea, and air. But the eight will not do what they’re told and quickly turn on the government that betrayed them.
All was going as the government intended until the unexpected occurs. With daring and determination, the eight steal a highly advanced super ship belonging to the Royal Navy. With the British Government denying any knowledge of their existence, the eight transform themselves into Public Enemy Number 1, the invincible Eight of Spades.
When the group finds itself nose-to-nose with the Navy they just humiliated, the Navy wants its ship back. If not in one piece, a million pieces will suffice.

Teaching Methods That Cover “The Elephant in the Classroom” by Stumpf.
Just what is The Elephant in the Classroom?
Everyone carries some kind of baggage. When a student walks into class, he or she is carrying baggage. This is the reality: The most important thing teachers can teach kids is that learning is fun and that they can do it. If they don’t learn this, it doesn’t matter what else is taught.
Education classes for teachers don’t discuss what to do when kids come to school hungry for food, or love, or attention. Classes don’t advise what to do when a child’s parent is in prison or if there is abuse or molestation in the home. But the baggage must be addressed. Otherwise, the student will just become “someone else’s problem” and the situation will escalate.
“This incisive book is not only a fascinating read, but discusses important problems in our schools. We are thrilled to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.

Universal Poems About Love and Nature Is Written By a Survivor – “When I Finally Get There” by Bobby Ferguson.
Sometimes when you are given a second chance at life, what emerges is beautiful poetry. When I Finally Get There is the author’s second collection of poems.
Bobby Ferguson of Glasgow, Scotland, was told in 2008 that he had 18 months to two years to live and would never walk again. Seventeen months later, he had a 30 percent chance of surviving a cancer operation. “I should not be here,” he says. Instead, he expresses himself through his evocative poetry, writing about romance, love, nature, childhood, and life in general.
“All my words come from a place I cannot explain. But I do tend to think ahead and have always done so. As with my earlier book of poems, Sense of Words, I began writing after a near-fatal head injury in December 2011, which left me with amnesia for over four months. I began writing again in March 2012, and have not stopped since. Poems just come to me, and I can easily write eight in an afternoon. Many say I am a born poet since More >
Robert Temple Frost expresses just how important it is to tell that special someone how much they are loved in “Romance in Bloom.”
The poet honed his words into a tender tribute to his wife. “My wife and I have an amazing romance that continues to this day. I reviewed the love poems I had written to her from the beginning of our romance and realized they make a story in poems that I thought others would enjoy.”
His 86 pages of poetry are meant to inspire readers to express their own tender thoughts in verse. Says modern day poet Robert Frost: “Be bold, be brave, be loving.” But above all, be expressive and don’t be afraid to show appreciation to loved ones.
With a name like Robert Frost, he had to write poetry!
“We are thrilled to announce the release of this delightful book of poetry. Its aim is to encourage everyone to express their feelings to loved ones.
