“I feel the weight of the hammer from the dusty workbench in my sweaty palm and hit the padlock. My heart thumps in my bony chest. I listen for the humming sound of my mother’s car backing into the driveway. I hit again. I listen. The lock pops open.”

At twelve years old, everything changed for Sheila with the discovery of her estranged father’s porn collection. Found locked away in a corner of the basement, the glossy images ignite in her an unrelenting desire for attention and adoration. Now, reflections on her past as a stripper permeate her thoughts as she takes on the new roles of mother, caregiver and wife. While helping her baby daughter take her first steps, she nurses her mother through the final stages of breast cancer. This powerful and beautiful story is a moving meditation on a woman’s life through her body, motherhood and loss.

Spiraling through memories and torn between the woman she is becoming and the woman she has been, Sheila Hageman is continually Stripping Down.

Forbidden by law and denounced as an abomination by the church, the Kure has been hidden for centuries…

“In vain thou shall use many medicines, but thou shalt not be kured. And even though you search for a virgin to lay upon her balm, there is no healing for you. You multiply your remedies in vain as your cries fill the earth, and you will stumble, one over the other, and both will fall down together.” – The Book of Eternal Regret

John Tyler, a young man in his early twenties, awakens to find a ghastly affliction taking over his body. When the village doctor offers the conventional, and potentially disfiguring, treatment as the only cure, John tenaciously convinces the doctor to reveal an alternative remedy – a forbidden ritual contained within an ancient manuscript called the Kure

Blaze MacKenzie is a freakishly-tall heiress who just discovered that her ‘parents’ actually found her abandoned as an infant in some bizarre human sacrifice in the woods. Along with that nasty little bit of information came a six hundred thousand dollar check, a strange golden feather, and the ability to move to the Alaska Bush and begin her dream-life living off the Grid.

Unfortunately for Blaze, life in rural Alaska isn’t as peaceful as she expected. Among her many startling discoveries is that her sexy new handyman, Jack Thornton, has already ‘claimed’ the territory that her new lodge is sitting on…

Further complicating matters, Jack makes it clear to Blaze that there are a good many things that go bump in the Alaskan night, and when a pack of werewolves goes rogue and starts killing or turning everyone along the Yentna River, Blaze and Jack find themselves in a fight for survival in this magic-soaked Land of the Midnight Sun.

Continue reading the Guardians of the First Realm series with Book 2: Alaskan Fury.

[Save 82%] Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer

Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and PoorerOvertreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer
by Shannon Brownlee

Our health care is staggeringly expensive, yet one in six Americans has no health insurance. We have some of the most skilled physicians in the world, yet one hundred thousand patients die each year from medical errors. In this gripping, eye-opening book, award-winning journalist Shannon Brownlee takes readers inside the hospital to dismantle some of our most venerated myths about American medicine. Brownlee dissects what she calls “the medical-industrial complex” and lays bare the backward economic incentives embedded in our system, revealing a stunning portrait of the care we now receive.

Nevertheless, Overtreated ultimately conveys a message of hope by reframing the debate over health care reform. It offers a way to control costs and cover the uninsured, while simultaneously improving the quality of American medicine. Shannon Brownlee’s humane, intelligent, and penetrating analysis empowers readers to avoid the perils of overtreatment, as well as pointing the way to better health care for everyone.

I am wondering why all of the books that I get from POI come to my kindle with a blank cover? When I scroll through my library looking for a new book to read, I don't know any of the titles?

Lisa Smith Duckworth September 8, 2012 at 4:52 am

Is your kindle on when you download the book? I noticed that happens if I buy the book off the computer & I haven't turned on my fire.

Debbie Duckworth Parker September 8, 2012 at 5:03 am

Lisa, I hardly ever power it down–is that what you mean? Or are you saying that I should have the screen on when I download? Thanks!!!

Marion Fields September 8, 2012 at 10:58 am

Wish I knew because I have about 10 that didn't put a cover picture on the book and I download them all the same way.

Robin Clayton September 8, 2012 at 11:19 am

I have a Kindle Fire and this happens once in a while but not often.

Marion Fields September 8, 2012 at 11:21 am

I wonder if there is a way to retrieve the book cover or reload it.

Shannon Hayden Smith September 8, 2012 at 12:10 pm

I have quit a few without the cover. I was wondering if there's a way to get the cover also….

Josi Rinehart September 8, 2012 at 1:28 pm

try just restarting it, power off and power back on while connected to WiFi. that usually helps mine :) hope it helps

Debbie Duckworth Parker September 8, 2012 at 5:29 pm

oh, shoot—that didn't work for me!!!

Hannah Murrill Warren September 8, 2012 at 4:44 am

I want the new Kindle Fire HD!

Robin Clayton September 8, 2012 at 11:18 am

Alaskan Fire is a great read, I highly recommend it!

Joyce Maynard September 8, 2012 at 7:18 pm

so far I have never gotten any books without the cover, hope I don't that would be awful, sometimes my kindle fire is on but most of the time it is off. I love all the free books.
