Power Sex and Shame: Overcoming Sexual Exploitation
In this book, survivors and their advocates (friends and family) will learn to identify how exploitation occurs and recognize the various ways people in power can manipulate others to compromise their sexuality. Readers will also explore the powerful impacts of shame and vulnerability and how to overcome those significant forces. The author provides specific steps toward healing from the abuse of power and introduces practical, every day actions to take on the misuse of power at a systemic level in all areas of our lives.
“Serving in my counseling practice for forty years has impacted me deeply as I have worked with women and men who have been or were currently being exploited by men (or women) misusing their power. This book provides a balanced, compassionate approach to help survivors and their advocates heal. – Peter Mosgofian
The facts show that untold (and it isn’t really a fact if the numbers are “untold”) millions of women (and a large number of men) have been victims of some type of sexual exploitation, often beginning very early in life. Sexual exploitation by men and women in positions of power at every level of our society is big news because it is a big, pervasive problem—in the numbers of victims, the severity of the harm, and the adverse moral and ethical impact on every level of society.

The Shipbuilder: A Paranormal Fantasy
The lost souls of Eastport, Maine struggle for Providence and tolerance. Can a stranger deliver salvation?
THE SHIPBUILDER is moody and somewhat grim. It has a deep undercurrent of fate and magic at its core, strongly reminding this reader of the work of Daphne du Maurier and Emily Brontë. With her passion for history and the accurate portrayal of the period, author Salina Baker brings this time and place to harsh, vivid life. In doing so, she’s crafted a resonant and compellingly readable novel. — Susan Rooke, author of The Space Between
In the summer of 1869, beleaguered for-hire killer Zach Dimitru arrives in Eastport, Maine, bearing an amulet and searching for absolution. His salvation is dependent on the Benoit Family, who are also pitiless and tormented. Zach’s deliverance is reliant on Juliette Benoit. The young woman is grieving the loss of her soul mate, whom she believes has reincarnated without her. Miraculously, the amulet imparts messages to Juliette. The fate of both Zach and Juliette, as well as the town, depends upon her ability to learn and convey those lessons before the arrival of a hurricane—one with the force to devastate Eastport.
