Marking the first appearance of Agatha Christie’s character Inspector Battle, it was first published in 1925 and went on to be a hit among readers. This mystery novel follows Anthony Cade, a man who unknowingly finds himself in the middle of an international conspiracy and a murder investigation after accepting a simple delivery job from an old friend.
As Cade slowly begins to realize his predicament has potentially put him in danger, he begins his own investigation into the strange series of events just as Inspector Battle of Scotland Yard begins the main, official investigation. As more and more clues begin to pop up—along with even more mysteries—Inspector Battle and Anthony Cade search diligently for the true murderer and uncover the answers to multiple conundrums that plague the characters within the novel.

Better Off Dead: An Epic Fantasy Romance Series (The Lily Harper Series Book 1)

Here’s the set-up:

First in the Lily Harper Series from New York Times Bestselling Author, HP Mallory!

If there’s such a thing as luck, I definitely don’t have it.

Killed in a car accident before it’s my time to go, I just learned that the hereafter isn’t exactly what I hoped it might be.

First, there’s AfterLife Enterprises…

Learning my death was indirectly their fault, Afterlife Enterprises offers me the chance to live again, but beware the fine print. Fine print = becoming a soul retriever. And, no, that’s not a new dog breed.

I’ll now be venturing into the bowels of the Underground City (think hell) to retrieve souls that were mistakenly sent there during a Y2K glitch. Seriously.

Second, there’s angel Bill…

As if risking my second life in the Underground City wasn’t enough, my guide is none other than my incompetent, alcoholic, womanizing guardian angel, Bill.

My future isn’t looking bright.

Finally, there’s the legendary bladesmith, Tallis Black…

As Scottish as his kilts and heavy brogue, Tallis Black is a centuries-old Celt who, for reasons only known to him, offers to train me and act as my escort into the depths of the Underground City. Dark, brooding and definitely dangerous, I know I shouldn’t trust Tallis, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Between soul retrieving in hell, dealing with Bill and trying to figure out what’s in it for Tallis, I’m wondering if maybe I would’ve just been better off dead.

Excuses like:
I don’t know anything about gardening.
I can’t do this.
I don’t have enough time to start gardening.

Just realize it doesn’t matter how many excuses you make, because those excuses aren’t going to help you change anything.

Those excuses aren’t going to plant healthy and tasty fruits and vegetables for us.
Those excuses aren’t going to give my children the chance to explore the beauty of nature.
Those excuses aren’t going to give my kids the health they deserve.

In Gardening For Kids, you’ll discover how easy it is to take away all those excuses and turn your garden into a place you and your family can enjoy. You’ll finally get to know how to take the RIGHT action instead of being left clueless and miserable like I once was.

“Why is it called Gardening for Kids if I’m the one that’s being spoken to?” Well, Kids usually need a little push when starting something new, like gardening. And that’s why after years of helping hundreds of families create their perfect garden and making gardening my full-time Job. I’ve created a parent’s guide so you can also start gardening with your children.

From Hazlitt: How much influence did MTV expect to wield when it came to young readers’ literary interests?

In 1996, fifteen years after its seismic launch, American television network and cultural kingmaker MTV surprised viewers and skeptics alike with an untypical announcement: it was hosting a fiction-writing contest.

Embarking on a new creative endeavour was not, in and of itself, unique to the brand. After all, MTV’s very existence was born from a brazen experiment uniting popular music, visual culture, and a brassy, free-swinging attitude. By the mid-nineties, the brand’s reach had unfurled in a variety of directions—often adjacent to music culture, but by no means focused on it—perhaps most famously those of animated programming (Beavis and Butthead, Æon Flux) and reality television (The Real World, Road Rules).

But literature is a domain often regarded, however snobbishly, as antithetical to the sorts of stimulations available on MTV. What’s more, the lofty, cerebral associations of the written word did not align with the channel’s bawdy reputation. The knowingly provocative music video for Duran Duran’s 1981 single “Girls on Film” initiated what critics regarded as a catalogue of garish smut. As early as 1983, journalist Steven Levy described MTV in a Rolling Stone cover story as “the ultimate junk culture triumph.” The channel won a Peabody Award for its 1992 “Choose or Lose” programming, which sought to mobilize young voters, and succeeded in its aim—at MTV’s inaugural ball, newly elected president Bill Clinton declared, “I think everybody here knows that MTV had a lot to do with the Clinton–Gore victory.” Still, the channel’s efforts to achieve something so serious as heightened political awareness were widely lampooned.

Here’s the set-up:

On October 15, 1985, two pipe bombs shook the calm of Salt Lake City, Utah, killing two people. The only link-both victims belonged to the Mormon Church. The next day, a third bomb was detonated in the parked car of church-going family man, Mark Hoffman. Incredibly, he survived. It wasn’t until authorities questioned the strangely evasive Hoffman that another, more shocking link between the victims emerged…

It was the appearance of an alleged historic document that challenged the very bedrock of Mormon teaching, questioned the legitimacy of its founder, and threatened to disillusion millions of its faithful-unless the Mormon hierarchy buried the evidence.
