The aim of this book is to give you the benefit of my experience. It is not the only experience. There are many valid paths to publishing a book. I do however think the path that I have found is a very good one. I feel so passionately about my publication strategies and the reasons I selected them that I have written this book. It is my sincere hope that this book will help you to be a more skilled publisher of books, whether you are a new author or seasoned author. If you are a new author, you will find a lot of valuable tools and effective strategies to aid you in the publication of your first book. For the new author, though, one of the most valuable things I will share are mindsets, which if you embrace them, will help you avoid pitfalls. These mindsets may even help you leapfrog more seasoned authors in building the skills needed to publish your future books. If you are a seasoned author, some of the things that I will say in this book will raise your eyebrows. If these things cause you to at least critically review the way you have always approached publication, then I have been successful. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mutt Rogers.

Returning to the milieu of his Swords trilogy, Saberhagen offers a new scenario. The gods have withdrawn from the human world and the 12 Swords of Power they had forged are now scattered, lost and hidden. The weapons are still coveted, though, by men like Baron Amintor, who has lost one kingdom and now sees them as the means to another. No scruples stop him from stealing the sword Woundhealer from the White Temple, where its powers were offered to cure all pilgrims. His bad luck, however, is to have crossed Prince Mark, who is desperate for Woundhealer´s help in treating his blind, troubled son. The running battle between Mark and Amintor, their allies, their wizards, and their swords, is spun out in a light, pleasant adventure that benefits greatly from Saberhagen´s narrative gifts as the various strands leapfrog forward, keeping the reader off balance but constantly intrigued. 1.

On the streets of Washington, D.C., a brilliant scientist, the brains behind a revolutionary fighter aircraft prototype in development by the Pentagon, is snatched by masked thugs and disappears. Now five years later, an elderly professor at Cambridge University has been murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture. Alex Hawke teams up with Scotland Yard former Chief Inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer, but this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinksmanship. In the United States, the president´s behavior makes many question his fitness for leadership. Is his mental health deteriorating, or is there something far more sinister at work? The answer is crucial, for hostilities are rapidly escalating between China, North Korea, and the United States, as China launches a vastly advanced fighter far more sophisticated than any seen before, military technology that might leapfrog everything the U.S. and Great Britain now possess. With the situation edging closer and closer to the yawning abyss, Hawke faces a female Chinese mastermind and assassin named Chyna Moon. He must infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize their advantage...or risk the outbreak of World War III. Performed by John Shea 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Shea.
