In her brilliant debut collection, “Nights I Let the Tiger Get You,” Elizabeth Cantwell excavates layers of contemporary anxiety…
Elizabeth Cantwell’s poems unfold in the nightmarish space between seeing a monster and discovering you are unable to scream. Nights I Let The Tiger Get You occupies that liminal moment between sleep and waking, when the objects of everyday life have grown distorted and ominous. Cantwell’s poems touch on picnics and metamorphosis, addiction and taxidermy. How can words absorb a history that keeps resisting expression? “And in the space inside your head, between / your eyes and your ears, an entire / planet throbs.”
In her brilliant debut collection, Nights I Let the Tiger Get You, Elizabeth Cantwell excavates layers of contemporary anxiety to reveal that Blake’s Tyger has been, all along, that rough beast slouching toward us, and is in fact now living among us—with an unsettling intimacy—in both our unconscious and daily lives. Elizabeth Cantwell’s poems honor the disjunctions of voice and dislocations of consciousness present in our century, and their elegant and luminous shards glint in the darkness like the Tyger’s stripes. These exquisite reflections form a kind of handbook of More >
“I’m Still Standing: Through Strength and Courage” by Raewyn Inder – Memoir: It Takes a Lot to Still Be Standing After Sexual Abuse.
I’m Still Standing: Through Strength and Courage is a true story of standing tall in the face of betrayal, disbelief, and self-realisation. The author’s honest portrayal of her life shows deep courage and the will to overcome early childhood abuse.
Being a teenager can be difficult at the best of times. Raewyn’s downward spiral was triggered with the death of her grandfather when she was 12. Around him, she felt safe, but without her beloved grandfather, she began to remember and unravel the mystery of her insecurities and depression. All Raewyn wanted to do was eat and sleep. Everything irritated her and she felt completely alone. Now she can look back on those years and realize that she was holding in the truth, by not wanting to face the horrors of her ruined childhood.
As haunting dreams begin to reveal the deep memories of the family member who sexually abused her, Raewyn shares her pain with her parents. But it was only at age 17 that she finally begins the long More >
Carpenter’s Son Publishing Announces the Upcoming Release of “Next Step” by Timothy K. Lynn on August 1, 2014.
Carpenter’s Son Publishing announces the upcoming release of Next Step by Timothy K. Lynn. Next Step (ISBN: 978-1-940262-19-2, Category: Biblical Studies/Bible Study, $24.99) will be available wherever fine books are sold on August 1, 2014.
Written by accomplished businessman Timothy K. Lynn, Next Step presents a faith-centered system for keeping one’s life on track and moving into an even closer relationship with God.
At an early age, author Timothy K. Lynn found himself facing adult challenges: at 16, Lynn had a wife and child, had dropped out of school, was on welfare and food stamps, and was working seven days a week just to make ends meet. At 16, Lynn had a singular focus: providing for his new family. Realizing that faith was central to having—and executing—a meaningful life plan, Lynn, through God’s grace, began to develop a system for keeping his life on track and maintaining focus. Inspired by Andy Stanley’s Starting Point, Lynn created a system centered on the four crucial components of faith, self, family and life’s work. That system evolved into Next Step.

“Lies: The Bible never lies” by Agustin S. Contin, spreads the true meaning of Christianity.
Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency is pleased to announce the release of its newest title, Lies / Mentiras: The Bible never lies / La Biblia nunca miente, by author Agustin S. Cortin.
The most important lies about Catholicism are refuted in this book – not by the author – but by the Bible and the Gospels!
For centuries, the Catholic Church has been teaching lies to its followers. Catholic clergymen pretend to be “representatives of God,” having the power to forgive the sins of other men during confession. They claim to be able to transform the host, providing wafers and wine to represent the body and blood of Jesus Christ, and the faithful eat and drink it as cannibals. Priests say their mass is a repetition of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, when Jesus died and resurrected almost 2,000 years ago. Yet God forbids us to communicate with dead people, so why would the church want Catholics to accept the great number of “saints” and “virgins” who are dead people?
It is time these lies are exposed and More >

Every day we strive to protect our children from the sinister plot of sexual predators. But the Internet provides an arena for felons to perpetrate their sadistic crimes of child abuse, molestation, child trafficking, etc. on innocent people, young and old, throughout the world.

“Glossarju: Germaniz-Malti / Malti-Germaniz” by Ritianne Stanyer, Anthony Aquilina (Ed.), Alfred Scalpello
FARAXA Publishing has the pleasure of announce the release of the ebook edition of the scholarly work Glossarju: Germaniz-Malti / Malti-Germaniz by Ritianne Stanyer, Toni Aquilina (Ed.), Alfred Scalpello. Previously available only in paperback edition, this German-Maltese-German glossary was scientifically compiled, making it an indispensable tool for anyone desiring to learn the German language and/or visit a German-speaking country. It is the first of its kind in the history of the teaching of German in Malta and is aimed specifically at the needs of the Maltese public.
Each entry in the glossary is exploited to the full through its use in a complete sentence, rather than limited to its equivalent in the target language. This approach was employed to solve individual problems of expression, while respecting Maltese and German cultural contexts. The book is user friendly and has two appendices: one with a localized key for the pronunciation of German sounds vis-à-vis the letters of the alphabet, another with cardinal and ordinal numbers in both languages presented in parallel.

“The Standard Cyclopedia of Recipes” by B. C. Edwards is Adapted from a collection of household instructions published in 1901.
Edwards’ first collection of poems is adapted from The Standard Cyclopedia of Recipes, a collection of instructions originally published in 1901. The source material covers all matter of common household tasks from dying wool, to tempering iron, to making bird food, to curing cancer and small pox, to crafting cough drops from laudanum and opium, to brewing beer.
Where Chas. W. Brown originally attempted to make order out of the chaos of the early 20th century, Edwards attempts much the same task with his poetry, writing about the terrors of adolescence, the frailty of love, the methodical process of growing old. The poetry is sometimes grand and all encompassing, sometimes minute and specific, but always it hammers away at the universal truths of the everyday.
What a mesmerizing, bossy, unstandardized book. It’s hard to know what to compare it to, other than its near-namesake, but why would you. B.C. Edwards has (re)invented something here that keeps telling you exactly what it wants, what to do—yet finally you have no idea what it wants, or More >
The Psychology Primer, “The Origins of Human Behaviour” by Bernard Rourke, Asks How do we Become?
Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency is pleased to announce the release of its newest title, The Origins of Human Behaviour, by author Bernard Rourke.
What are the origins of our myriad personal qualities? What are The Origins of Human Behaviour? Author Bernard Rourke never accepted that living in slums and suffering abuse are principal factors in creating a person’s character and temperament. There had to be other more dramatic sources of influence.
He examines the role of instinct and other inheritance issues in the animal kingdom, because he believes that what has been successful for millions of years might well have carried over into our species. Is human behaviour environmental or ancestral, and what makes us unique individuals?
This fascinating book is written in plain English to help us understand how we have evolved into the person we have become. It explains our major influences and demonstrates that the origins of human behaviour contain some genuine surprises. Who are we really?

Bernard Rourke was born in 1934 in Liverpool, England. During World War II, he was evacuated for three More >

Childhood and teenage years should be a time to be happy and carefree, but problems such as bullying can transform this stage of life. “My own pain, the damaged self-esteem of one of my sons, and the cries of children and parents inspired me to listen with my spirit and write from my heart,” says author Sally Ragoo.
