Manny dedicated his life to his work for more than thirty years. He’s not sure what retirement will hold for him—not sure he’ll be able to slow down that much. But he doesn’t need to figure it out all at once. He’s given himself a month to ease into the transition. He’s rented a house in the lakeside town where some of his friends live. The house isn’t much, but he plans to take good care of it for the widow he’s renting from. Whenever he’s imagined how his new life might look, the picture has never included a woman. He’s always thought of retirement as riding off into the sunset … alone. Nina thought the sun had set on her life a couple of years ago when her husband died, leaving her with a pile of debt and a broken heart. She moved away from the lake for a chance at a fresh start. She even went on a date for the first time. But what she’d hoped might be a bright new beginning is overshadowed when both her safety and her job are threatened. It’s time for her to go home to Summer Lake—the only trouble is, she just rented out her house. Manny thinks he’s renting from some old lady. Nina thinks her tenant is some old guy who’s retiring.

Sunsets & Semicolons - a Frank & Revealing Field Guide to the Writing Life From struggling as a beginning writer and learning everything he could squeeze out of books and articles on creativity, writing, and publishing, Greg Lilly stepped his way from technical writer to technology analyst to infrastructure architect of a major corporation then took a turn in his path to magazine editor, fiction author and small press publisher. The shift from the Information Technology world to a Writer's Life was a 40th birthday re-invention with some squeaks and bumps along the way. That perilous journey led Greg to develop and conduct several acclaimed workshops and seminars for aspiring writers. He shares his experiences and techniques - things that worked, not in academia or in New York City, but in the real world of freelancing and query letters and book signings. The kernel of this book came from requests of those workshop handouts and notes. "This is one writer's life," he says, "from creativity to craft, staring at sunsets to sweating over semicolons. This is my opinion, but certainly not the only one out there. These tips and suggestions have worked for me over time, and I hope they give you some guidance and sparks of insight." This is a field guide to navigating the Writer's Life. "This guide does not teach you how to write. It gives you tips for the trenches of writing: developing an idea so it makes it to the page; overcoming writer's block when the words don't flow; strengthening the pace of the manuscript so readers are breathless; and finally, how to sell your manuscript to a publisher - from an insider's viewpoint." Discover advice from testing an idea for a novel to perfecting a query letter that sells that novel to a publisher - in a frank and revealing Field Guide to the Writer's Life.

In the Bible, God’s heroes pour out so many of their beliefs about God’s greatness and their failures and successes in abiding by God’s premonitions and promises. At the brink of death, they cry out for the strong and saving presence of God; at the same instance, their hearts rise up with grateful beats for God’s positive promises for them. Reverend Vima acknowledges himself as one already entering the threshold of golden age, hearing the same heartbeats from his inner spirit as well as from so many of his peers. This book contains a hundred such fire-tried golden heartbeats. The contents of this book have been gathered by the author for more than ten years and intensively worked on it in his retirement life. They are framed as small articles under many titles. In his foreword, Reverend Vima underlines this book is a gift of love from him to his readers, young and old: I offer it to the young ones so that either they can fight against them or bite them or munch them or even digest them for getting stronger in their holdings of Christian faith. I present it to the golden agers so that these heartbeats of mine may join with their own, making their inner holdings wrapped around and getting stronger or dance according to the beats as a sort of spiritual exercise in their lone world stage.

Paul Suntup, like many great artists of their time, has spent years in near obscurity with respect to his poetry. The publication of Paul's first full length book of poetry will finally establish this man as one of the most original and gifted voices of his generation. The imagery and cadence in Paul's poems is nothing short of miraculous. With very few words he is able to speak to our senses in a way that is at once reminiscent of some of the great poets, and at the same time, delivered in his own fiercely original and inventive voice. This long-awaited first book will please fans who have already discovered his writing, and will also open the doors for new readers to enjoy. This collection of poetry will become one of the more prized and admired works from a modern day poet. The world needs to KNOW what a fantastic writer this guy is. Seriously. One of the great unheralded writers of our time. - Victor D. Infante, “City of Insomnia” There is an abiding innocence throughout Paul's work that is impervious to the cynicism of our times, and that is the best thing of all, for it makes him one of the most gifted and original voices of our generation - Amélie Frank, author

Every morning when I wake up, before my feet touch the floor, I am so grateful for who I am and for the simple things I have. I give thanks unto God. This is not a poetry book about religion. It is a series of poems with pictures telling a story about living life in a world that has become so busy that we forget to slow down, take time to think about the what-ifs and the many possibilities that can or will happen if we take time out to render gratitude or thankfulness in the midst of experiencing joy and sorrow, hope and peace. My inspiration to write these poems is based on how busy we have become in our daily routine. We are so busy; oftentimes, we forget to take time out of our busy hours and think about the simple things in life and how amazing our lives are or how amazing our lives can be if we slow down, breathe, and think. From the imagination of the writer, the intent is to inspire, encourage, and comfort. Enjoy the story of each poem as told by the writer. I hope my readers find inspiration in the words I have written so they, too, can be inspired to slow down, breathe, and think.

CO-PUBLISHED BY ROUTLEDGE AND THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH Grammar to Get Things Done offers a fresh lens on grammar and grammar instruction, designed for middle and secondary pre-service and in-service English teachers. It shows how form, function, and use can help teachers move away from decontextualized grammar instruction (such as worksheets and exercises emphasizing rule-following and memorizing conventional definitions) and begin considering grammar in applied contexts of everyday use. Modules (organized by units) succinctly explain common grammatical concepts. These modules help English teachers gain confidence in their own understanding while positioning grammar instruction as an opportunity to discuss, analyze, and produce language for real purposes in the world. An important feature of the text is attention to both the history of and current attitudes about grammar through a sociocultural lens, with ideas for teachers to bring discussions of language-as-power into their own classrooms.
