Harmony and Timing by Jennifer Hernando

A moving love story that sweeps readers from the modern day to 1942 …

The United States government has approved time-travel as a new way to vacation.

The process is highly controlled and tightly monitored to prevent anyone from erasing or modifying the past, but for the world’s most wealthy, time travel has become a way of drowning out the boredom of the current day.

So, when professional violinist and recent graduate, Harmony Harrison, receives a ticket to travel as a graduation gift, she’s in shock. Elated to visit her hometown in 1942 amidst turmoil and upheaval of WWII that she’s obsessed about, Harmony steps through the doors of the Department of Travel and Historic Preservation, and discovers a world hidden away from most of the population.

Her vacation back in time was only supposed to last for two weeks, but when she meets and falls in love with a handsome storekeeper, named Jack O’Dowd, Harmony extends her stay. When Harmony and Jack learn they’re pregnant, they’ll discover that the consequences for breaking the rules extend to more than just themselves and the people in the past. Their actions could alter time as we know it.

If you enjoy reading historical romance with mystery and a twist, you’ll love this journey through time that test the limits of space, time, and love.

About Featured Book: Track Down Box Set: Books 1-3 (Brad Jacobs Thriller Series) by Scott Conrad

Kindle Countdown Deal Sale Price $0.99 from 11/21/20 – 11/27/20.

Brad Jacobs has made a career out of “kill or be killed.”
Some call him cold-blooded. He’d argue that emotional sensitivity is no match for an AK47.

Then he receives the call that changes everything…

TRACK DOWN AFRICA
Brad’s mischievous cousin, Jessica Paul, has gone and got herself lost in the African jungle. They say the 26-year old treasure hunter has become disoriented, or run off with some local tribe. But Brad knows Jess. She wouldn’t leave her family behind in the name of adventure, or rebellion. Somewhere, someone— knows the truth. And in a land of deadly diseases, man-eating beasts and terrorist militias, this is one mystery he’s half-afraid of solving.
If anyone can save her, it’s a tough bounty hunter with a crack team of military buddies. But the darkness waiting for them in the Ubangi Jungle is deadlier than any they’ve faced before, and this time, the stakes are so much higher.

TRACK DOWN ALASKA
It was meant to be a hunting trip…
Until the predator became the prey.
Brad learns the plane carrying Jessica’s new boyfriend has crashed in the mountains of Alaska. If the impact didn't kill him, the grizzlies and arctic temperatures will, never mind all the strange sightings that have become local legend. Some say they're hillbillies, running from the government. Others whisper of cross-burnings, skinheads and gaunt-faced women.
Brad will do everything he can to protect Jessica. But her handsome beau is keeping secrets, and few who get lost in these mountains manage to come out alive.

TRACK DOWN AMAZON
All he wanted was a break, but Brad Jacobs should have guessed that in a world fueled by blood and greed, only the wicked get to rest.
After a perilous adventure in Alaska, the former Marine and bounty hunter is thawing his toes in Cabo when he gets a call from his colleague Ving, whose little brother has disappeared while on a DEA mission in Peru. A ransom request has arrived from Shining Path, a Maoist Guerilla Group led by the psychopath Rodolfo Abimael Guzmán. Ving wants Brad to handle the exchange, but there’s one glaring problem. The only thing Guzmán values more than cash is the mystery around his hidden headquarters. Captives who know too much are returned to their families in body bags.
Jacobs is a hostage rescue expert, not an undertaker. Can he risk the lives of his team for little more than a bag of bones?

Enjoy this starter set of the first 3 action-packed short novels in the Brad Jacobs Thriller Series and really get to know the characters before moving on to the full-length books. Ride along as Brad builds the world’s most elite Hostage Rescue Team!

About Featured Book: Damnable Fun by Victoria Knight and Hyperion Knight

Revenge is a Dish Best Served in Cold, Hard Cash

A few years after high school, Christina can’t take the dull, workaday world anymore, so she gets the old gang together to pull off a small-town bank heist. Seeking the criminal mastermind status she craves, she recruits her concert pianist brother Van, car-thief friend Walter, and hot ex-boyfriend Sonny. What’s supposed to be an easy little inside job turns into a rollicking adventure as these amateur criminals attempt to go pro. In the midst of planning a major federal crime in a weekend, will the thrill of being bad reignite the romantic-crime-duo chemistry between Christina and Sonny? Will sophisticated pianist Van get caught red-handed and lose the prestigious career for which he sacrificed his youth? Will Walter’s wacky schizophrenic mom or Sonny’s nosy teen-runaway cousin be the downfall of the whole gang?

The Pragmatist’s Guide to Life: A Guide to Creating Your Own Answers to Life’s Biggest Questions by Malcolm J Collins

As humans, we get to choose what we believe and who we want to be. This book is a ruthlessly pragmatic guide to creating your own answers to life’s biggest questions.

Each of this book’s four chapters covers one of the most important questions a person must ask themselves:

What is the purpose of my life?
How can I best realize the purpose of my life?
Who do I want to be?
How do I want other people to think of me?
Rather than give you answers to these questions, this guide provides a framework that helps you develop your own answers while equipping you with the neuroscientific tools necessary to transform yourself into whomever you choose to be.

If you are looking for a light read that will make you feel good about yourself, this isn’t the book for you. If you want to take the time to think hard, take full ownership of the person you have allowed yourself to become, and permanently transform yourself into the best iteration of that person then you have found your book.

Targeted Age Group:: 18+

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As humans, we get to choose what we believe and who we want to be. These are the most important decisions we will ever make.

The vast majority of people never exercise their freedom to choose their identity and beliefs. Instead, they allow others to tell them who they are, choosing only a few trivial differentiating traits for themselves. When they react angrily or generously, they ascribe the personality that lead them to that behavior as being something outside their control. This is because in their minds "who they are" is something outside of their control.

We live life as a sticky ball rolling down a sidewalk, picking up a hodgepodge of stuff that just happens to be in our path. It is natural to try to convince ourselves that this hodgepodge is "who we really are." We tell ourselves this lie because thinking is hard, and society doesn't give us a good framework for structuring our beliefs about ourselves and the world. Instead, we are served a smorgasbord of prefabricated worldviews and told we have the option to choose among them.

Worse, we live in a society in which there is no profession or organization we can turn to for help answering life's big questions that will not pressure us to adopt beliefs closer to their own. If you ask them what you should want to do with your life, they tell you to do "good" things and then explain to you what you should believe "good" is. This is not due to any flaw in these individuals or institutions, but the fact that these institutions are designed from the ground up to lead people to the answers they believe are right. There is no institution designed from the ground up to help people come up with their own conclusions.

We hope to remedy this. The Pragmatist's Guide to Life is a product of the Pragmatist Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people in live intentionally and consider alternative viewpoints. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us at pragmatist.guide/.

In this book, we encourage the use of applied pragmatic thought–a framework for systematically constructing your own beliefs about the world, leveraging those beliefs to decide who you want to be as a person, and creating the person you want to be.

Surviving Remote Work by Sharon Koifman

Sharon Koifman is a survivor.

He survived the dot com crash. He survived working with outsourcers that mastered English like fish mastered riding bicycles. And he survived building and leading a completely remote business spanning four continents… With two toddlers in the room.

The title of this book is a lie. Sharon Koifman didn’t survive remote work. He thrived with remote work. Surviving Remote Work is the distillation of a decade of lessons. Inside, you’ll learn the tools, strategies, and tactics to survive and thrive as a leader in the remote age.
Things like:

-How to keep your company culture alive remotely – or even build one from scratch;
A world-class recipe for onboarding new remote people -one that has received praise from dozens of clients and hundreds of employees;
-How to manage and avoid distractions – for yourself and your team;
-What is the best remote communications technology that no one is using;
-How to protect your business’ (and your clients’) data in a fully-distributed operation;
-How to keep the extroverts in your team from wanting to kill themselves;
-How to keep the introverts in your team for wanting to kill the extroverts;
And much, much more.

Some awesome authors have interviewed, studied, and collected data for their business books. We love those guys. We like their books. But this is something different. This is a book by someone who experienced everything described within firsthand. Sharon made all the possible mistakes (plus a couple of impossible ones) in remote work. All so you don’t have to. Buy it now and learn how to survive remote work!

Targeted Age Group:: 30-50

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
These days Sharon runs DistantJob, a unique recruitment agency geared specifically for finding full-time remote employees who work from all over the world. He’s been working tirelessly to promote remote work. The key difference in his approach is that he wants to show how remote work benefits businesses.

Everyone talks about the benefits to the individual – less stress, less commute, better work-life balance, more options of where to live… We’ve heard it all. But Sharon’s argument is that remote work also benefits companies and their bottom line. He believes companies who adopt remote work can be leaner, less expensive, more environmentally-friendly, and have access to better and more productive people, faster.

And suddenly, the whole world was forced into remote work! So, in the wake of the COVID crisis, he wrote “Surviving Remote Work” in order to help businesses not only survive but actually thrive in this new environment.
