‘Comic-Con Strikes Again!‘ (Kindle Single) by Douglas Wolk is available for FREE download on the Amazon US Kindle site. Just click here to download!
Comic-Con International is the world capital of fandom. Every year, 130,000 people flock to San Diego for a five-day marathon of Hollywood star power, sensory overload, gigantic shopping bags, grand feats of imagination, tacky nostalgia, very long lines, and people dressed up as Princess Leia. It’s the place where people who love the fantastic side of culture go to express that love, and where the companies that want to sell them fantasies in every possible medium try desperately to woo them. Douglas Wolk (author of the Eisner Award-winning “Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean”) plunges into Comic-Con’s bizarre collision of fans and franchises, and looks at what happens when the marketers of movies, TV shows, comics and games meet their most devoted, most demanding consumers.

Jennifer Weiner’s talent shines like never before in this collection of short stories, following the tender, and often hilarious, progress of love and relationships over the course of a lifetime. From a teenager coming to terms with her father’s disappearance to a widow accepting two young women into her home, Weiner’s eleven stories explore those transformative moments in our every day.
We meet Marlie Davidow, home alone with her new baby late one Friday night, when she wanders onto her ex’s online wedding registry and wonders what if she had wound up with the guy not taken. We stumble on Good in Bed’s Bruce Guberman, liquored-up and ready for anything on the night of his best friend’s bachelor party, until stealing his girlfriend’s tiny rat terrier becomes more complicated than he’d planned. We find Jessica Norton listing her beloved New York City apartment in the hope of winning her broker’s heart. And we follow an unlikely friendship between two very different new mothers, and the choices that bring them together — and pull them apart.
The Guy Not Taken demonstrates Weiner’s amazing ability to create characters who “feel like they could be your best friend” (Janet Maslin) and to find hope and humor, longing and love in the hidden corners of our common experiences.
‘The Deborah Company: becoming a woman who makes a difference‘ by T. D. Jakes (Destiny Image) is available for FREE download on the Amazon US Kindle site. Just click here to download! Also at Amazon UK and Amazon CA.
God is looking for Deborah’s — women who dare to make a positive difference in all they do.
Have you realized your full potential? Have you explored all you can be? Are you a woman of influence?
Deborah, the judge and prophetess, was filled with Holy Spirit revelation and employed divine wisdom and strategies to influence her world. She exemplified boldness, courage, and the heart of a true worshiper as she also maintained balance in managing her responsibilities.
The Deborah Company is an inspiring combination of historical and modern women who made or are making a positive difference in their church, home, community, and world.
The author’s personal experiences, sprinkled with humor, will encourage you to overcome the challenges that women uniquely face in gender-biased church cultures, in secular society, as well as in balancing the call of God through strong marriages and families.
Not just for women, this book is also for Christian men and church leaders who should know how women can best fulfill their role and destiny in His Kingdom.
