Brian Jones was the golden boy of the Rolling Stones—the visionary who gave the band its name and its sound. Yet he was a haunted man, and much of his brief time with the band, before his death in 1969 at the infamous age of twenty-seven, was volatile and tragic. Some of the details of how Jones was dethroned are well known, but the full story of his downfall is still largely untold.
Brian Jones is a forensic, thrilling account of Jones’s life, which for the first time details his pioneering achievements and messy unraveling. With more than 120 new interviews, Trynka offers countless new revelations and sets straight the tall tales that have long marred Jones’s legacy. His story is a gripping battle between creativity and ambition, between self-sabotage and betrayal. It’s all here: the girlfriends, the drugs, and some of the greatest music of all time.
Victors get to write history—but it’s rarely fully true. The complete, magnificent story of the Rolling Stones can never be told until we disentangle all the threads and put Brian Jones back in the foreground.

In the rousing style he’s famous for, celebrated biographer Paul Johnson offers a fascinating portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower, focusing particularly on his years as a five-star general and his time as the thirty-fourth President of the United States.
Johnson chronicles President Eisenhower's modest childhood in Kansas, his college years at West Point, and his rapid ascent through the military ranks, culminating in his appointment as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II. Beginning when Eisenhower assumed the presidency from Harry Truman in 1952, Johnson paints a rich portrait of his two consecutive terms, exploring his volatile relationship with then-Vice President Richard Nixon, his abhorrence of isolationism, and his position on the Cold War, McCarthyism, and the Civil Rights Movement. Johnson notes that when Eisenhower left the White House at age 70, reluctantly passing the torch to President-elect John F. Kennedy, he feared for the country’s future and prophetically warned of the looming military-industrial complex.
Many elements of Eisenhower’s presidency speak to American politics today, including his ability to balance the budget and skill in managing an oppositional Congress. This brief yet comprehensive study will appeal to biography lovers as well as to enthusiasts of presidential history and military history alike.

So began his quest to hone not just his homemade baguette—which later beat out professional bakeries to win the “Best Baguette of D.C.”—but his knowledge of bread, from seed to table.View Details »
For the next four years, Fromartz traveled across the United States and Europe, perfecting his sourdough in California, his whole grain rye in Berlin, and his country wheat in the South of France. Along the way, he met historians, millers, farmers, wheat geneticists, sourdough biochemists, and everyone in between, learning about the history of breadmaking, the science of fermentation, and more. The result is an informative yet personal account of bread and breadbaking, complete with detailed recipes, tips, and beautiful photographs.
Entertaining and inspiring, this book will be a touchstone for a new generation of bakers and a must-read for anyone who wants to take a deeper look at this deceptively ordinary, exceptionally delicious staple: handmade bread.

Here's the blurb for this Young Adult story:
A world changed forever by war
Kids exploited for their gifts of mind and strength
Can the gifted keep the ones they love safe?
Or is there more at stake than they realize?
In 2050, the Cataclysmic Wars erupted, triggering natural disasters. Tornados, tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanoes. The country once known as England was changed forever.
Some survivors developed unusual skills and talents in the century since. Gifts of heightened physical and mental abilities. The king uses these “gifted” children for entertainment at court. In these matches, called “Pageants,” physical strength is pitted against mental acuity, and some children die from the strain.
For seventeen-year-old Kelwin, his gift of second sight is a curse. Physical contact is painful, and this keeps him separate from his loving family. Rosemont, his family’s holding, is struggling. Payments to the king have nearly crippled them and the nearby holdings, leading to dissention and raids to keep their people fed.
Sixteen-year-old Alyssa and her little brother Thomas escape from her late father’s holding, Merrickwood. Though she is unaware of it, she has the gift of telekinesis. Their guardian Baron Dalton senses it and wants to control her. They run to Rosemont.
Kelwin is drawn to Alyssa, and feels no pain when he touches her. Alyssa feels a connection to him too, though her brother’s safety is first in her mind.
Can she and Kelwin work together to keep her little brother safe? Or is there more at stake than they know?

*No P.O. Boxes Please
Ask yourself: What is the smallest change you can make to your request, proposal, or situation that will lead to the biggest and best difference in the outcome?
In The small BIG, three heavyweights from the world of persuasion science and everyday practice -- Steve J. Martin, Noah J.Goldstein and Robert B. Cialdini -- describe how, in today's overloaded and stimulation saturated world, increasingly it is the implementation of very small changes that will lead to the greatest successes.
In the last few years more and more research from diverse fields has helped to uncover an even greater understanding of how influence, persuasion, and behavior make change happen. Increasingly we are learning that it is not information per se that leads people to make decisions, but the context in which that information is presented
Presented in a highly-entertaining string of more than 50 case studies, and drawing from extensive research in the new science of persuasion, the authors present amazing evidence that can bring about momentous shifts in results. It turns out that anyone can significantly increase his or her ability to influence and persuade others -- not by informing or educating people into change -- but instead by simply making small shifts in approach that link to deeply felt human motivations.

Five years ago, Lane Kramer moved to Starry Point, North Carolina, certain the quaint island village was the place to start anew. Now the owner of a charming seaside inn, she’s set aside her dreams of being a novelist and of finding love again. When English professor Michael Forrester appears on Lane’s doorstep in the middle of a storm, he claims he’s only seeking a quiet place to write his book. Yet he seems eerily familiar with the island, leaving Lane wondering if he is quite what he appears.
Meanwhile, Mary Quinn has become a common sight, appearing each morning on the dunes behind the inn, to stare wistfully out to sea. Lane is surprised to find a friendship developing with the older woman, who possesses a unique brand of wisdom, despite her tenuous grip on reality.
As Lane slowly unravels Mary’s story and a fragile relationship between Lane and Michael blooms, Lane realizes the three share a common bond. But when a decades-old secret suddenly casts its shadow over them, Lane must choose between protecting her heart and fighting for the life—and the love—she wants.

Television journalist Sara Simone has just landed a huge story, the one she’s sure will propel her from her local news job in Chicago straight to a network anchor chair. But, when her reporting takes her to the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, she finds herself unable to maintain her usual cool distance from tragedy. Her great talent, getting grieving relatives on camera, doing those wretched “how do you feel?” interviews, seems not just inadequate, but actually wrong.
So, instead of doing her job, she walks away, soon finding herself quite literally directionless. Desperate to get out of the slums, she climbs on board the first bus she sees and winds up at an old safari lodge in the Rift Valley. The colonial relic feels, at first, like a haven of respite, a quiet place to figure things out and plan her next move. Can she salvage the career she abandoned in the slums? Does she even want to?
Living a life, she soon discovers, can be far more complicated than merely reporting about one. [close]Giveaway dates: Aug 15 - Aug 25, 201410 copies available, 235 people requestingCountries available: US

This novel is in the negotiation phases with several film distribution companies who would like to turn my story into a feature film.
I wrote this during a four year stretch in federal prison. I was convicted of conspiracy to distribute heroin with an international drug cartel based out of Mexico and Los Angeles.
This is the synopsis of my novel:
His music could have made Damien Cantwell the star of his generation.
But living fast has its consequences, and Damien soon finds himself spiraling into a dark world full of unfettered debauchery and brutal violence.
The horrors of drug addiction are painted in sharp, biting prose in this novel about throwing away everything and finding that some things are too precious to lose.
Here are some blurbs:
"...in this almost Grand Guignol style that invokes such surprisingly respected figures as Dennis Cooper, Hubert Selby, Chuck Palahniuk and early Poppy Z. Brite. (After all, if you're going to write a dark novel about drug addiction, why not make it literally The Darkest Novel Ever Written About Drug Addiction.)"
- Chicago Center for Literature & Photography
"William S. Burroughs once said, 'Desperation is the raw material of drastic change. Only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape.' Ryan Leone, in his debut novel Wasting Talent proves this. Leone’s raw style and life experiences create a novel impossible to put down and equally impossible to forget. "

Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering.
Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession’s ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified.
Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end.

"...enjoy yourself as you accompany Tim on his journey - less a romance than a romantic tale of someone's self discovery. You don't have to be a Broadway fan (or gay) to appreciate this work."
The first time Tim met Javier, he was blown away by the attention. As an overweight, twenty-something virgin, he didn't often - actually ever - get a guy, let alone a hot one, pay attention to him.
The problem, Javier is straight; yet he gives Tim mixed messages. Tim can’t get Javier off his mind, unless he is pursuing his love for theater - or talking with his best friend, Julia, about the “unattainable” crushes they share on some of the guys back home.
Tim on Broadway is also available as an ebook, the full season, or five separate episodes. [close]
