A Mask for Every Face
A. G. Moore
This book was intended to be about one life. It became more. In recalling her childhood, the author did not hold up a mirror to discover the truth; she instead applied a paintbrush, and an analyst's eye. Her discussions range from Asperger's Syndrome to the history of her community. With this well-documented memoir, Ms. Moore engages in a conversation about important issues of our time. This was intended to be a book about one life, but it grew to be larger than that. It became not only the author's history, but the history of a community. As the work progressed, issues arose from which the author could not turn.There was her brother, Everett, for example, who at the age of eleven was entrusted to the care of a state facility, Letchworth Village. Twenty years after her brother took up residence there, an expose would reveal that conditions of abuse and neglect were rampant in the institution. The author could not write about her life without addressing this. And so the history of L

The Binder Of Shame Presents: The RPG.net Rants
Al Bruno III
Presenting tasteless tales of role-playing madness, completely unedited and, for reasons even I do not understand, presented in screenplay format. “Every D&D game has many binders but each D&D game must have a Binder of Shame and a Binder of Glory. The player characters that die heroic deaths are saved forever in the page protectors of the Binder of Glory. The characters that suffer, humiliating, soul-crushing deaths go into the Binder of Shame. It’s a sign of quality GMing to have a Binder of Shame three times the size of your Binder of Glory.”

At age 24 I decided to tell my story. Writing this autobiography gave me the opportunity to pay tribute to my family members who are passionate about life and have instilled this passion in me. My parents' extraordinary support, encouragment, and pure love were my foundation as I navigated life, overcame obstacles, and achieved successes as a young woman with cerebral palsy.

THE WRITER'S LIFE
A compilation of the author's works over the years. Steven Travers is the most prolific, hard-working and versatile writer in America today. "The Writer's Life", which is a collection of his works, is one of the most instructive books ever written on what it is like to be a writer. This is not a nuts-and-bolts instruction guide. It is inspiration to get off your behind, take on what Hemingway called the White Bull, and write. If Steve can do it, so can you. Inside Steve's work is far more than the Jim Murray-inspired entertainment that infuses his sports stories. Rather, here is an up-close encounter with the process of writing in every way. The business of writing. Dealing with lying editors and incompetent little people clinging to their feifdoms. The brutality of rejection and the brilliant light of public acceptance. Most of all, Travers' story is the story of a writer who refuses to quit and comes back…time after time after time! It is the story of a man who will not let the l
This the story of my journey in faith leading to my becoming an Anglican priest in my old age. I got my first call into ministry as a teen age girl. Women were not then accepted into the church so I took my call into teaching. This is the story of the steady growth of my faith during the most difficult times of my life, ending with the amazing, wonderful moment when I was finally able to answer the call, renewed again when I was already an old woman. I hope it might inspire others never to doubt that God is good and that there is a place for everyone in His church.
Specks of Happiness
'Specks of happiness' is about the remarkable moments of joy in our everyday life. We all experience them but often tend to bypass them.I am sharing some of these moments from my life.If after reading my stories, you are able to recognize the specks of ecstasy in your life, the purpose of my book would be served My book, 'Specks of happiness' is about the remarkable moments of joy in our everyday life. We all experience them but somewhere in the mundane tasks and routine chores, we often tend to bypass these moments and are never able to enjoy them. We always keep waiting for our 'big dreams and expectations' to come true and materialise and we put our happiness on hold while these specks of happiness keep passing us by. I am not saying that we should not wait for our dreams to come true, in fact on the contrary, if we learn to recognise these specks of happiness in our lives, the positive energy generated would propel us towards accomplishing our bigger goals even more rapidly.

Middle Class White Suburb - Life: Transition
I always wanted to make a movie about partying with friends and call it “Middle Class White Suburb” because I often heard the highest percentage of drug users were not in poor urban communities, but rather in this book’s namesake. I felt and still feel like my story is nothing more than a microcosm of the society I grew up in. However, this book focuses on recovery starting at the age of 26. This is the first in a series of Ebooks which explore life as it exists in Middle Class White Suburbs across the United States. We will start in the middle of the author’s life with “Transition” which follows him as he journalizes his life for roughly two and a half years leading up to his 29th birthday. A period which begins shortly after the break up with the mother of his one and two year old children. Much of his life, for almost a decade at this point, is controlled by drinking, gambling, drugs, and irresponsible sexual behavior. Two months into this period he seeks and finds help to quit
