Crafting together the power of words and womanhood, writer Tanya Markul has written a completely unique poetry collection fit for the phenomenal readers of today. In Tanya's words, "May we raise the bar for how we live our lives. May we ridiculously increase the amount of peace, play, creativity, beauty, love, and joy in everything we do. May we all sip from the wisdom of our suffering. And awaken with the courage to share our stories that can heal our inner and outer worlds."
An intimate collection of modern prose, poems, and quotes about surviving dark times. It's about telling your story... A resilient journey through a season of loneliness, as cycle of heartache, and a year of depression–this is what she unexpectedly found within the depths of her brokenness and how she emerged stronger. This book unapologetically explores the feeling, healing, and revealing of depression and the power of asking for help and being open to receiving support from nature and others, while giving a creative and empowering voice to emotional pain. As I wept in the arms of darkness, I heard the voice of my grandmother say, Nothing stays the same, darling, not even pain. Life is a path of change. Of ecstasy and ache. So, no matter what the storm claims, let love light the way.
This book is an insider's guide to how the comic book industry works. You'll learn how comic book superheroes are created and the deeper meanings they represent. You'll follow the development of sequential art storytelling - from caveman wall paintings to modern manga and cinematic techniques. Here you will explore comics in all forms: those flimsy pamphlets we call comic books; thick graphic novels; Japanese manga; and blockbuster movies featuring epic battles between good and evil. But behind it all, you'll discover how comics are an intellectual property business, the real money found in licensed bedsheets and fast-food merchandise, heart-pounding theme park rides and collectible toys, video games, and Hollywood extravaganza featuring such popular superheroes as Spider-Man, Superman, X-Men, and Batman.
Women face many challenging transitions on the pilgrimage from girlhood through womanhood: menses, love and heartbreak, motherhood, menopause. Devoid of a central narrative, these rites of passage too often happen in shame and secrecy, leaving women doubting their personal power and self-worth. Bestselling author and founder of The Way of the Happy Woman®, Sara Avant Stover saw how women erroneously viewed these initiations as “curses” and sought to present a new model that reflected the power and wisdom unique to the feminine path. The Book of SHE celebrates all that it means to be a woman, from mythological underpinnings to the cycles of our day-to-day lives. Drawing on archetypes including Mary Magdalene, the Dark Goddess, and Green Tara, Stover will guide you on a journey home to psychological wholeness, personal empowerment, and, ultimately, full feminine spiritual Awakening. Brimming with mystery and magic, this provocative book makes ancient wisdom and healing practices accessible to every woman who is ready to revel in her full femininity — the dark and the light — through joyfully becoming the heroine of her own life.
Discover 25 women who were trailblazers in science, technology, architecture, engineering, and more. Learn about some of the women who defied expectations and introduced the world to new ideas and creations big and small.

Suggest for fans of other mysteries set in cute tourist areas, such as Lorna Barrett's Booktown mysteries."—Library Journal Callie Reed has put together a special event, but a killer is ripping it apart at the seams As the new owner of a music box store in Keepsake Cove, a quaint town full of collectible shops on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Callie Reed is eager to get more involved in her community. So she volunteers to plan the fall street decorations and welcome a visiting author who's come for a special book signing. But the celebratory mood is cut short when the local B&B owner is found dead, killed with a pair of vintage scissors.

Together, they begin their own investigation, only to discover that many people in Keepsake Cove have secrets. Secrets that are worth killing to keep. Praise for the Keepsake Cove Mysteries: "Hughes kicks off her new Keepsake Cove series with a charming locale."—Kirkus Reviews
In this award-winning anthology, the editors grouped almost 200 poems into pairs to demonstrate the different ways in which male and female poets see the same topics. How women see men, how boys see girls, and how we all see the world -- often in very different ways, but suprisingly, wonderfully, sometimes very much the same.

Wild woman Danielle Dulsky takes you deep as she explores and embraces sacred feminine archetypes such as the Mother Goddess, the Crone, and the Maiden. Join her as she guides you to envision and explore a world that enriches and supports your spirit, body, and mind as well as our global community and the Earth.
A sensual tale of a book, a baron, and a bride-to-be In need of income for the struggling Sommers barony, Jeffrey Althorpe arranges for the publication of a book he’s written–anonymously, of course. A dowry would be easier, but then he would have to find a willing wife. While her brother is away on an expedition, Lady Evangeline is left behind to spend her days creating exquisite embroideries and reading books. She's about to buy The Story of a Baron when Lord Sommers suddenly appears, intent on buying the very same book—but there’s only one copy. Desperate to discover what his publisher might have done to his story—without letting on he’s the author—Jeffrey suggests they read it together. Evangeline's sterling reputation could use a bit of scandal, so she agrees. As the two read the book, Evangeline realizes some of the characters are a bit too familiar and the settings are a bit too close to home. Was she the inspiration for the baron’s secret love, a bold, brash woman whose reputation is in tatters? With her own reputation suddenly in question, Evangeline finds her life imitating art. How can the book have a happy ending when she wishes she’d never purchased "The Story of a Baron"?
