    Forgotten No More by April Zyon 
    Cynder is used to going unnoticed, left alone, and constantly forgotten, but that all changes when the impossible happens, and someone actually sees her and wants her just as she is. 
    Unexpected Complication by Ryder Dane 
    Fanny had never expected to fall for a man like Hoss, a man who had no shame, yet every time he held her in his arms her heart started pounding harder, and breathing became laborious. She knew he had secrets, but she didn’t care; nothing else mattered beyond how they felt about each other… Right? 
    Fast Love by Sin Certity 
    Cole likes his women like he likes his cars, flashy and fast.  At least he used to… 
    Jenna wants Cole. She has since the first time she saw him, but when he doesn’t reciprocate her advances, she decides to back off and see what happens.  When they finally collide they’re explosive, but what will happen when a rival of Cole’s succeeds in getting inside his head?  Will Cole and Jenna win this race together or will one of them be left at the back of the grid?

    Where do I start?
    
    Over the years of psychic medium work I have frequently been asked,
    
    "When did you know you were psychic?"
    
    For me it was very early in my childhood. I believe we are all born with psychic abilities and as a child my mother supported my gift. Many people ignore or are in denial about their psychic ability as they're just not ready. Believe it or not, all of us to some degree have psychic abilities.
    
    Throughout my family history our psychic abilities are well documented. My children also have the gift and choose to use their abilities at their own discretion.
    
    Over the years I have trained many talented people who have become Spiritual Teachers, Reiki Masters, Clairvoyants and Healers. Other students have done my programs for their own personal spiritual journey. I love my students as they come from all walks of life and beliefs.
    
    I love that spirituality has no denomination.
    
    The work I do is active, interactive and thought provoking. During my 'Evenings with Spirit', I speak to those who have passed over in front of a live audience. What comes through from time to time is both exciting and riveting. Some come to my live shows with reservations or skepticism and leave wanting to come back or to make a booking for a personal consultation.
    
    All I ask is that people approach what I do with an open mind.
    
    I am pleased you have taken the time to read my introduction. My invitation for you to come into my world through this book is genuine as I know many of you with natural psychic ability will be curious to know my story. Having the gift can be a lonely and confusing path to follow at times but through my book I hope to be able to help you to find some of the answers you may be seeking.

    Francis Bacon in Your Blood

    In June of 1963, when Michael Peppiatt first met Francis Bacon, the former was a college boy at Cambridge, the latter already a famous painter, more than thirty years his senior. And yet, Peppiatt was welcomed into the volatile artist's world; Bacon, considered by many to be "mad, bad, and dangerous to know,Â?? proved himself a devoted friend and father figure, even amidst the drinking and gambling.   
      
    Though Peppiatt would later write perhaps the definitive biography of Bacon, his sharply drawn memoir has a different vigor,  revealing the artist at his most intimate and indiscreet, and his London and Paris milieus in all their seediness and splendor. Bacon is felt with immediacy, as Peppiatt draws from contemporary diaries and records of their time together, giving us the story of a friendship, and a new perspective on an artist of enduring fascination.

    Eric Rohmer - Interviews

    The 1969 film Ma Nuit chez Maud catapulted its shy academic film director Eric Rohmer (1920–2010) into the limelight, selling over a million tickets in France and earning a nomination for an Academy Award. Ma Nuit chez Maud remains his most famous film, the highlight of an impressive range of films examining the sexual, romantic, and artistic mores of contemporary France, the temptations of desire, the small joys of everyday life, and sometimes, the vicissitudes of history and politics. Yet Rohmer was almost fifty years old when Maud was released and had already had a career as the editor of Cahiers du Cinéma, a position he lost in a political takeover in 1963. The interviews in this book offer a range of insights into the theoretical, critical, and practical circumstances of Rohmer’s remarkably coherent body of films, but also allow Rohmer to act as his own critic, providing us with an array of readings concerning his interest in setting, season, color, and narrative. 
    Alongside the application of a theoretical rigor to his own films, Rohmer’s interviews also discuss directors as varied as Godard, Carné, Renoir, and Hitchcock, and the relations of film to painting, architecture, and music. This book reproduces little-known interviews, such as a debate Rohmer undertakes with Women and Film concerning feminism, alongside detailed discussions from Cahiers and Positif, many produced in English here for the first time.

    The lives of more than twenty-five actresses lost before their time—from Marilyn Monroe to Brittany Murphy—explored in a haunting, provocative new work by an acclaimed poet and actress. 
    Amber Tamblyn is both an award-winning film and television actress and an acclaimed poet. As such she is deeply fascinated—and intimately familiar—with the toll exacted from young women whose lives are offered in sacrifice as starlets. The stories of these actresses, both famous and obscure-tragic stories of suicide, murder, obscurity, and other forms of death—inspired this empathic and emotionally charged collection of new poetic work. 
    Featuring subjects from Marilyn Monroe and Frances Farmer to Dana Plato and Brittany Murphy—and paired with original artwork commissioned for the book by luminaries including David Lynch, Adrian Tomine, Marilyn Manson, and Marcel Dzama—Dark Sparkler is a surprising and provocative collection from a young artist of wide-ranging talent, culminating in an extended, confessional epilogue of astonishing candor and poetic command.

    This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead . . . 
    There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!
