“Girl Show” by Kristy Bowen capture the details of domestic life gone delicately, mysteriously wrong.
Set in the 1930?s midwest and adrift in the surreal world of bird girls and sideshow mermaids, girl show explores the boundaries between spectacle and domesticity, between beauty and grotesquerie. Each poem inhabits the strangeness at the edges of the commonplace, where the real word falls away to the whirl of carnival lights and tented shadows.
“Kristy Bowen’s poems unfold like a fairy tale pop-up book; open like a cabinet of wonders in which girl is both cabinet and wonder; flame and spark into the night air where we read by that light. In a collection so rich in image—milk and angels and vinegar, the trap door and the hemline, bees and a line of low clouds—I’m struck even more by those seemingly small words of relationship—the prepositions—behind, against, inside, beneath beneath beneath. These poems arise from the ‘rubied dark’ where the Louises and Livvies and Coras live, frightened and yet defiant, and return there, with us in tow.”– Mary Ann Samyn

Spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ One Book at a Time – “The Father’s Love” by J. P. Ruiz.
Discover True Love
The Father’s Love is an inspirational book illustrating the Love our Heavenly Father has for people and the love people are supposed to share with each other. This is an immeasurable love that prompted our Heavenly Father to send His one and only Son, Jesus, to come to earth. During His time here He was spat upon, cursed at, beaten beyond recognition, and crucified for our sins. Jesus did this, not only out of obligation to the will of His Father, but out of love for you so He could spend eternity with you.
The word “love” has been given many definitions by the world and is commonly recognized as the warm, fuzzy feeling we get when we are attracted to someone, when someone meets a need in our lives, or when someone is nice to us and makes us happy. The truth is, love is so much more than that, and it is an More >

“Bormla: A Struggling Community” by JosAnn Cutajar, Ph.D.
Bormla: A Struggling Community is a landmark, mixed methods study in which JosAnn Cutajar presents the current situation of the people of this impoverished, historical, European city in the Maltese Islands. Measures that can be taken by the community, the nation and politicians are also presented, to heal the social ills of this city.
Research study after research study has shown that communities living in places stigmatized by policy makers, the media and the general population, develop coping skills to acquire alternative resources for their social well-being. In Maltese society, resources are often deployed by policy and decision makers who remain not cognizant of the differential needs of communities living in different places. Policies which look neutral on paper are anything but neutral when applied. In this study,
Cutajar gives voice to the unheard people of Bormla, brings their needs to the forefront and provides effective resources for change.

“Primordial Consecution: Twelve Apostolic Originals Derived From the Shuffled Manuscript Theory” by Humilis Filius del Pater
What If the Order of Our New Testament Documents Were Accidentally Shuffled Millennia Ago? “Primordial Consecution: Twelve Apostolic Originals Derived From the Shuffled Manuscript Theory” by Humilis Filius del Pater.
Is it possible that the original New Testament documents deteriorated due to excessive use? And if the scroll sheets came apart, were they stuffed together in the wrong order before they were stored again?
This is the proposition behind the Shuffled Manuscript Theory. Once out of order, the original pages were later copied that way for the church by subsequent generations of believers, and have remained in that state to present day.
For the first time in almost two millennia, these freshly retranslated documents have now been unshuffled and reorganized, utilizing the breaks intentionally preserved in the Greek manuscripts of the first transcribers. Their holy pages are presented here in the order originally written – and combined with a technically literal new translation – will wow readers!
PRIMORDIAL CONSECUTION: TWELVE APOSTOLIC ORIGINALS DERIVED FROM THE SHUFFLED MANUSCRIPT THEORY (ISBN: 978-1-62857-018-2) is now available for $16.95 and can be ordered through the publisher’s website or at Amazon.com.

Eye-Opening Look at the World’s Many Problems Philosopher Analyzes Politics, Religion, Economics, Health Care, & More in “Random Thoughts of a Canadian Patriot” by Don Chivers.
Random Thoughts of a Canadian Patriot takes on the world! It reveals the possibilities of multiculturalism, and considers the long-range effects of a changing economic world in relation to Canada.
One chapter defines the relative strength of money, and another addresses the need for world cooperation in dealing with global warming. There is a plausible explanation of how and why man became a confrontational zealot over his adopted religion. It also explains why religion became an argument of creation versus evolution. Some light is also thrown on Canada’s much-touted health care system.
The large number of political parties in Canada is shown as a disadvantage to a democratic federal election ever gaining a majority government. The book also shows how costly social programs lead to a spiral of “thinning the wealth,” with government the main beneficiary.
RANDOM THOUGHTS OF A CANADIAN PATRIOT: ARE WE THE BENEFICIARIES OF RACIAL MEMORY? (ISBN: 978-1-62516-934-1) is now available for $29.95 and can be ordered through the publisher’s website or at Amazon.com.
