The closer she got to him, the more her powers awakened. He was like a magnet she was drawn to. Maybe it was the years alone that left her yearning for companionship, or maybe it was the taut muscles in his arms that beckoned her to come closer, either way she had a hard time controlling her thoughts.

Description:

Why do 90% of the people who start trading FX lose money?
‘World-class traders, trainers and authors’ have spent many years exaggerating, misrepresenting, advocating techniques that no one could ever master, and taught out-of-date, worthless techniques is why. Adding to the fact that new traders trust “experts”; they attend “free” how-to-trade FX seminars offered by self-described expert traders; they buy books that “reveal the secrets” of successful traders and eventually have to learn a lot of hard lessons of big money losses.

This book will arm you with the knowledge you need to avoid the fate of 90% of new FX traders and in turn, big money losses.

How can I be so sure? I was one of the thousands who graduated from the school of big losses. The only thing I became an expert in was losing money. I paid for courses, bought and read books, and purchased a number of software systems when I first became an FX trader.

I only wish is that this book had been available then, being armed with these lessons and those learnt from others’ experiences. I would have saved thousands of dollars of hard earned money, years of time, and trouble at home.

This book details the experiences of seven of us who believed the experts. It reveals the ways FX trading experts misrepresent their success, why the methods they teach don’t work for traders. Reading this book before you spend anything on “expert” training, you’ll know what questions to ask, how to get to the truth, how not to get taken by disreputable trainers, and how you can more likely become one of the 10% of new FX traders who actually make money.
After two years of planning, writing and editing, utilizing Winsor Hoang’s 15+ years’ experience in the forex market as well as drawing on the experience of others, this book is able to identify the lessons learned and ways to be more aware of the pitfalls of investing in a competitive forex market.

With so many “experts” in the market, taking peoples’ money and offering nothing of value in return, this book provides a wealth of knowledge that every new investor should know when entering the forex market!

The Bull, The Bear, and The Baboon offers an insight into the currency trading market through the eyes of seven people, each with a different reason for becoming a trader. Their individual stories and the ways in which they interact and influence each other provide the reader an eye-opening portrayal of the trading world.

Both entertaining and informational, this book reads like a suspense novel and, at the same time, offers practical advice to both the novice and experienced investors. It is a captivating narrative story in what is typically a nonfiction, educational genre.

Inspired by the overwhelming number of swindlers that fool the average individual entering currency trading, this book is written for mainstream audiences, weaving very real trading cautionary points into the technical pitfalls, disciplines, and psychologies related to trading.

Each succumbs to Harry’s sales pitch and enrolls in a course that will change their lives – and the lives of four others who band together to form the “Gang of Seven.” The Bull, The Bear and The Baboon recounts each person’s situation, examines the reasons their trading strategies failed, offers specific steps that investors should take to avoid losing all their money, and outlines a trading edge to significant profitability, even when one is right only half the time.

Inspired by the overwhelming number of swindlers that fool the average individual entering currency trading, this book is written for the mainstream audiences, weaving very real trading cautionary points into the technical pitfalls, disciplines, and psychology related to trading.

Open Heart Chronicles: BREATHLESS MAGIC by Rachel Higginson {Character Interview/Giveaway}

OH banner

And they lived happily ever after…
Or that was supposed to be how the story ended. Unfortunately for Eden Kendrick, a new enemy threatens her beloved Kingdom, one more dangerous and deadly than ever before.
After enjoying a deliciously elongated honeymoon, Eden returns to the Citadel with her husband and happiness intact. She’s unexpectedly pregnant, but that’s just one more blessing to add to her blooming happiness.
Eden’s heart is full and her endless life has never been more happy. That is until Dmitri Terletov returns from the dead and threatens everyone she loves and the Kingdom she worked so hard to build.
This time around, Eden is supposed to be shielded from the conflict. She has her growing babies to protect now and Kiran wants her as far from the battle as possible. Although she’s a little stir-crazy with idle hands, she agrees that keeping away from Terletov and his deadly experiments is definitely the right course of action.
Unfortunately, Terletov doesn’t agree. And when he arrives at the Castle, uninvited and desperate for the Magic Eden once stole from him, she has no choice but to fight once again to save the people she was born to protect.
***
Character Interview with Kiran and Eden:

 

 

*What was your first impression of one another?
Eden: *snort* Love at first sight.
Kiran: For me it was.
Eden: Alright, maybe it wasn’t love at first sight for me, but there was definitely a very strong attraction between us. At least until you opened your mouth.
Kiran: *grinning* I can admit to a fair amount of jackassery in the beginning, but there has always been something pulling us toward the other, even in those first few moments. You were the loveliest thing I had ever seen and I knew more than anything else that I needed to be a part of what you were.
Eden: You’re going to make me cry.
Kiran: Not me, Love. Blame that on the baby.
*Most romantic gesture you’ve done for each other?
Kiran: That would obviously be when I tried to die for her all those times.
Eden: All those times?
Kiran: There were definitely a lot of times I tried to die for you. You’re just especially selfish when it comes to me.
Eden: *smiling fondly*I would have to agree with that.
Kiran: And what’s your most romantic gesture, Love?
Eden: Same thing. When I wouldn’t let you die for me. Or at least without me.
Kiran: *putting his hand on Eden’s stomach* A baby is pretty romantic.
Eden: *laughing* And I made this baby just for you, Kiran. Just to show you how much I love you.
Kiran: I know.
*Favorite qualities about one another?
Kiran: I love her devotion, her loyalty, her compassion, her sweet spirit. She is just everything to me. And more. So much more.
Eden: You really want me to cry, don’t you? You’re purposefully trying to make me cry.
Kiran: It’s all truth, Love. But you know that. You know you’re my eternity.
Eden: This is my favorite quality, whatever this is. The way he says things that change my life, my way of thinking… my soul. The way he leads and the way he follows when he has to. The way every day he is a better man than the day before. And the way he will always and forever love me.
*Let’s be honest now…most annoying trait about each other?
Eden: Oh, lord. The smirk. Definitely and without a doubt, the smirk.
Kiran: *smirking* I don’t smirk. I don’t.
Eden: *rolls her eyes* Sure, sure. Now, come on, let’s hear it. What’s my most annoying trait?
Kiran: Your stubborn spirit. Most definitely.
Eden: I’m not stubborn.
Kiran: Right.
Eden: I’m not.
Kiran: *grins*
*Do you have pet names? If so what are they?
Eden: Love. He has always called me Love.
Kiran: Because you are love, in every sense of that word. *thinks for a moment* Do you have a pet name for me?
Eden: *clears her throat* Does jackass count?
Kiran: Er, no. The answer to the question is no, she does not have a pet name for me.
*Ideal Valentine’s Day date and/or gift?
Kiran: I would love it if she would relax, put her feet up and for just one day make it so I didn’t constantly worry about her and the pregnancy.
Eden: Isn’t that a gift to me?
Kiran: We have this conversation daily and I have yet to witness feet up and arse relaxed, so no. That gift is specifically for me.
Eden: Fine, then I would like the Indian Palace. I loved the Indian Palace.
Kiran: *after he recovers from shock* Then why did you blow it up?
Eden: *shrugs* You know, desperate times and all…
Kiran: *shakes his head* Maybe the Palace is gone… for good thanks to you. But we can go back to India, Love. Just say when.
Eden: When.

Crowdfunding for Social Good: Financing Your Mark on the World

Crowdfunding for Social Good: Financing Your Mark on the World

by Devin D. Thorpe
Over the last year of writing my Forbes blog, I have had the opportunity to really dig deeply into the world of crowdfunding. I’ve just completed my first draft of my new book, Crowdfunding for Social Good: Financing Your Mark on the World.

The book is a guide to successful crowdfunding for people who want to change the world.

The book is not a sequel to my book, Your Mark On The World, but it is written in the same spirit. I’ve studied a dozens of successful crowdfunding campaigns, interviewing the people behind them to learn their secrets for success.

Devin’s Book, Your Mark on the World, was downloaded over 75,000 times and reached the #19 spot on Amazon’s free book list–among all free books. It remains on the top 50 free nonfiction books at Amazon.

Buy on Paperback

Review – I’m ashamed to say I don’t really think about charity, sure I give at church, I throw coins at the bell ringers at Christmas, and I donate used clothing but nothing up and above that. I never heard of Crowdfunding or thought that I could do anything to make a change.

Reading the examples of what people were doing gave me hope for humanity and made me reexamine myself. I’m a good person but I can certainly do more to help those around me. There were stories about people who had lost loved ones and made lemonade out of lemons. This is a truly inspirational book. I highly recommend!

 

Devin D. Thorpe thinks he is the luckiest person alive. After being “let go” from the best job he’d ever had—as the Chief Financial Officer of the multinational food and beverage company MonaVie—he and his wife ended up living in China for a year where he wrote Your Mark On The World and embarked on the career he’d always wanted yet hadn’t dared dream.

Now, as an author, a popular guest speaker and Forbes contributor, Devin is devoted full time to championing social good. His current life isn’t much like his past.

As an entrepreneur, Devin ran—at separate times—a boutique investment banking firm and a small mortgage company. He served as the Treasurer for the multinational vitamin manufacturer USANA Health Sciences years before becoming CFO for MonaVie. Over his career he led or advised on the successful completion of $500 million in transactions.
Devin squeezed in two brief stints in government, including two years working for Jake Garn on the U.S. Senate Banking Committee Staff and another year working for an independent state agency called USTAR, where he helped foster technology entrepreneurship during Governor Jon Huntsman’s administration.

Devin is proud to have graduated from the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business, which recognized him as a Distinguished Alum in 2006. He also earned an MBA at Cornell University where he ran the student newspaper, Cornell Business.

Today, Devin channels the idealism of his youth with the loving support of his wife, Gail. Their son Dayton is a PhD candidate in Physics at UC Berkeley (and Devin rarely misses an opportunity to mention that).

Legend of the Spider-Prince: REBEL

Wyl is a young rebel whose life of dangerous lies and hidden truths has cost him his childhood and his ability to trust. He is fanatically loyal to the rebel leader, a woman embroiled in a blood-feud with Trascolm’s ruling clan. When he’s not away spying, he’s her secret bodyguard—she needs protection from her army of renegades and outlaws as much as from bounty-hunters and assassins sent by her archenemy. But when the rebellion meets with disaster, the rebel leader’s strategy changes. Wyl is thrust into a hostile royal court of underage teens—mere children, to his mind. He’s expected to embrace this more civilized way of life, but his brutally-honed instincts betray him, and he makes enemies instead of friends. Wyl—a boy raised by outlaws—is in over his head and must somehow master the subtleties of court intrigue well enough to keep the rebel leader and her rebellion alive, despite the treacherous machinations of her enemies, and do it without getting himself killed.

About the Legend of the Spider-Prince series In a war-torn land where men have unbridled influence, but women hold the reins of power, a young rebel becomes entangled in a deadly web of magic, court intrigue, and revenge amid an escalating wave of events that will ultimately destroy magic, overturn governments, cause the near-collapse of civilization, even threaten the very existence of life on Eryth—and make him a legend.

SUE BROOKS REVIEW:
This is a new author for me to read – but I enjoyed the story and thoughtitwas fantastic!! This is not a fast read but it did keep my interest throughout the whole story!!!

The story is about a boy who has been trained to defend himself by one of the best war generals of all time, but he has yet to develop the strength of a man. He is one of the bodyguards to Helgurdda, the rebel leader who intends to be the royenne (queen) of their country.I won’t say much more about the story -because you should read it and discover the story for yourself.

I seriously had trouble putting this book down once I got into it because I wanted to know was going to happen next. It’s fabulous.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

About the Author

I loved fairy tales as a child, but could never get enough of them until I learned to read for myself. I spent my formative years with my nose in a book or playing dungeon master for my sisters long before there were actual games requiring one. Our Barbies fought Klingons, conquered the galaxy—and always had room on their spaceship for horses.

I am a horsewoman, an archer, a fencer, a former military officer, and a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism—all useful skills and experiences for a fantasy novelist. I am currently holding down a day job in Mississippi, USA, where I live with my husband and two daughters, and am presently down to one horse, one cat, and one dog—and ‘way too many books.

Keeper of Reign Book Tour (Review)

Keeper of the Reign

Books written in blood. Most are lost, their Keepers with them. A curse that befell a people. A Kingdom with no King. Life couldn’t get more harrowing for the Elfies, a blend of Elves and Fairies. Or for sixteen-year-old Jules Blaze. Or could it?
For Jules, the heir of a Keeper, no less, suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. It was bad enough that his people, the Elfies of Reign, triggered a curse which reduced the entire inhabitants to a mere inch centuries ago. All because of one Keeper who failed his purpose. Even the King’s Ancient Books, did not help ward off that anathema.
Now, Gehzurolle, the evil lord, and his armies of Scorpents, seem bent on destroying Jules and his family. Why? Gehzurolle’s agents hunt for Jules as he journeys into enemy land to find the truth. Truth that could save him and his family, and possibly even reverse the age-long curse. Provided Jules doesn’t get himself killed first.

My Thoughts:

I received a copy of Keeper of Reign in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. I love how the author was able to capture the reader from page one. The descriptions of the characters and surroundings were exquisitely done. The story was fast paced with never a dull moment . It involves a curse on the people and land. Jules is in search of a way to reverse the curse before the big bad gets him. It was a really fun book and genuinely look forward to reading more from this fabulous author in the future. The only downside that I came across in reading this spectacular book is it ended. I was so drawn into the story I wanted and needed more. Well done on this great book! I absolutely loved the beautiful and brilliant cover.

The Acid King Book Review

Four long-estranged friends from London’s turbulent Sixties scene of sex, drugs and rock and roll are thrown together after seventeen years when one of them accidentally discovers the secret identity of their betrayer; a man they knew only as The Acid King, a charismatic figure who orchestrated a weekend of alluring drugs ending with a bust, jail time and death.

  • What the friends don’t know is that a New York FBI Agent, another old enemy of the Acid King, has been on a long frustrating manhunt of his own, driven by the same rage for revenge. Until, by coincidence, he discovers the mystery man’s hidden Los Angeles location and tracks him to his lair. Resulting in a dangerous confrontation that puts lives, both guilty and innocent, on the line.
  • The Acid King is the thinly veiled story of the famous Redlands drug bust of 1967; an event that put Mick Jagger and Keith Richards behind bars and nearly destroyed the world’s most famous rock band. All orchestrated by an unidentified man who set them up and then disappeared.
  • By a strange twist of fate the Author (former film agent for Mick Jagger) met the Acid King in Los Angeles and became involved with him for several years, never knowing who he really was, until her friend Marianne Faithfull (former lover of Jagger) surprisingly identified him.

Review -

I was looking forward to reading this book after seeing the cool cover. The premise is a fictional account of people who had been friends in the sixties and are reunited in 1984. It is based on a true story about a drug bust that involved the Rolling Stones in the 60’s. The author created a band and a story where the results of the drug bust breaks up the band and has lasting effects on their lives.

It begins in 1984 when a two of the women in this group reunite in LA and one discovers that the other is acquainted with a man who she recognizes as the man who betrayed them 17 years before. This sets up a chain of events spanning from LA to England and even involving the FBI.

The style of writing took a little bit for me to get used to; I sometimes felt I was watching a TV show with the chapter breaks being where a commercial break would be inserted. I enjoyed the dialogue between the characters, it was witty and stylishly written. The author used flashbacks to the events in the 60’s where we gain insight into how they came to be where they are now. I liked that they all had different paths after the drug bust; a successful rock star, a bitter has-been set on revenge, and women who remade themselves and became successful. And the Acid King, who although he was in hiding, maintained his lifestyle

I have to say my favorite character was the Acid King himself. Even though he was the bad guy, he was a mysterious and intriguing character. I was amazed at how he was able to be one step ahead of everyone.

The ending was great and was where I found the most action in the storyline. It was like something out of a movie. I can’t say too much here since that would spoil it for those who have not read it, but I was surprised with how it all played out.

This would be a good book for anyone interested in the time when the Rolling Stones were coming into popularity and who enjoy a good story about the rock star culture.

About Maggie:

The Acid King tells the fictionalized story of what she imagined could have happened afterwards.

Maggie Abbott started writing novels when she moved to Palm Springs after a long, successful show business career in Los Angeles, London, Rome, and New York.

A casual job as a secretary at the William Morris Agency in Rome introduced her to the exciting scene of Cleopatra, Fellini’s and The Pink Panther, with the city’s influx of big stars calling by the office every day, and triggered her lifelong love affair with movies.

Over the years, Maggie has enjoyed being in the most interesting places at the best of their times, while working as the movie agent for some exciting stars: Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Charlotte Rampling, Jacqueline Bisset, Martin Sheen, Raquel Welch, Christopher Plummer, Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, Peter Sellers, Richard Chamberlain, Peter O’Toole, Britt Ekland, Ken Russell, John Boorman, and many more.

Somewhere in between, Maggie was the production assistant on three Broadway plays, and a producer and studio executive at Columbia Pictures where she developed and got production credits on two movies.
